Do you know at what age we really start to age?

first_imgImage: iStock Stanford University has recently carried out a study with which it was possible to know the age at which a person begins to age. In order to achieve this, scientists and researchers from that university have studied the blood protein levels of 4,263 people whose ages were between 18 and 95 years.In conclusion, they have determined that aging follows a uniform rhythm and that there are 3 key points in which the passage of time begins to be reflected in the human body. The first point at which the first signs of aging are appreciated is at the age of 34. The other two points occur much later and occur respectively, at 60 and 78 years. This division into stages within the development of aging, according to Professor Tony Wyss-Coray, occurs because the levels of different proteins undergo unpredictable changes at certain points in life. For this reason and in a general way, we can mark 3 concrete stages in a person’s life, which would be: early adulthood, late middle age and old age. The result of this study has different benefits since, in addition to solving the uncertainty about the origin of aging in the human body, it serves to detect possible diseases that originate with age, such as cardiovascular disease or Alzheimer’s disease, and perform a Best treatment since its inception. One of the things that most frightens people in general is aging. Starting to see gray hair in the hair or wrinkles on the face are signs of the weather that many people want to avoid anyway. A great example of this are the thousands of creams, serums and treatments that exist in the market and that ensure delaying the effects of the passage of time in our body. However, we all know that aging is something that will happen sooner or later and now, thanks to a scientific study, we can know even when.center_img Old age is one of the issues that most worries come at a certain ageIt is after 34 when the first symptoms of aging are shownlast_img read more

Dr. Logan Wants Support for His Ebola Treatment Protocol’, Which He Has Used to…

first_imgThe County Health Officer and Co-chair on the Bomi County Taskforce, Dr. G. Gorbee Logan, has told the Daily Observer that he needs more support for his experiment, which he has used to “cure” at least 10 persons who once tested positive with Ebola.He, however, stressed to the Observer that it was yet too early to say that his experiment was working or works effectively against the deadly disease, which has so far killed over 2000 persons in Liberia alone. He said he determined to carry out the test on as many as 500 patients so as to validate his claim that his self-invented protocol works well against the virus.Dr. Logan administered Lamivudine drug through his protocol to cure the 10 Ebola patients in Bomi County, with several others on medication in the Ebola Treatment Unit.Speaking on Friday at the reunification and certification program of the Ebola disease survivors in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Dr. Logan said, the using of Lamivudine drug on affected Ebola patients was due to some similarity between the Human Immuno Virus (HIV) and the Ebola virus.He explained that HIV is a single stranded ribonucleic acid virus (SS-RNA) while the Ebola virus is the same.According to Dr. Logan, “If this Lamivudine drug can be used to cure hepatitis and also in combination with Zidovudine to treat HIV, and the question then asked was, would this help to cure Ebola virus? when would this research and study be conducted when our people are dying? I decided to try this medication on 15 persons.”According to the U.S. Nation Institutes of Health, Lamivudine is in a class of medications called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). It works by decreasing the amount of HIV and hepatitis B in the blood. Although lamivudine does not cure HIV, it may decrease your chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer. The drug, when used alone or in combination with other antiviral medications, can cause serious damage to the liver and a condition called lactic acidosis. Therefore it must be prescribed following tests administered by a medical doctor and monitored for side effects on a patient by patient basis. Dr. Logan continued that along the way of trying the medication on 15 patients who blood samples were tested positive at the Liberia Institute of Biomedical Research (LIBR) earlier, 10 survived and the treatment continued up to date for other patients, who still in the ETU.According to Dr. Logan, the Lamivudine drug is in the list of World Health Organization (WHO) essential drugs that is approved for used and he did not manufactured the drug.He explained that only people who come for early treatment can be provided the Lamivudine drug especially from the first day of the symptoms of Ebola to the fifth day, adding that, “Not only Lamivudine drug that is needed to cure Ebola patients and anyone who comes late cannot be given the drug.”According to him, blood samples of the 10 were taken and tested by all professional doctors and nurses including people from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as other international partners working in collaboration with the County Task Force in Bomi.The 10 persons who survived of the deadly Ebola virus disease include: Promise Galakemene, Kula Coleman, Patience Kamara, Susan K. Kamara, Bendu Kamara, Fatee Sheriff, Elizabeth Kundo, Jowel Khovoy, Tenenie Golafaley and Charles Roberts.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Baghdad moves to avert raids by Turks on Kurds

first_imgMeanwhile, Turkish military movement has intensified, with shelling reported from Turkish areas along the border. Gen. Ilker Basbug, the commander of the Turkish Land Forces, and a group of high-ranking military officials arrived for inspections on Tuesday in Sirnak province on the border, the semi-official Anatolian News Agency reported. Turkish political leaders have seized on a recent jump in the number of killings of Turkish soldiers by the PKK and are applying pressure on the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to act. “From now on, Iraq has to make this choice: PKK or Turkey,” Deniz Baykal, the chairman of the main opposition political party, said Tuesday.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tom Casey, a State Department spokesman, warned against military action in a briefing in Washington on Tuesday. “I think it’s clear to everyone that unilateral action is not going to be a way to really address the problem that is at the heart of this,” Casey said. ISTANBUL, Turkey – Iraq dispatched one of its vice presidents to Ankara on Tuesday in a last-ditch effort to talk Turkey out of a military offensive into the Kurdish region of Iraq. A spokesman for the Iraqi government, Ali al-Dabbagh, said the government wanted an urgent dialogue with Ankara to avoid fighting and to find a diplomatic solution to a worsening crisis along the Iraqi-Turkish border. The Turkish Parliament is on the verge of approving a cross-border offensive to strike Kurdish rebels who carry out attacks in Turkey from northern Iraq. The rebels, members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party or PKK, have taken refuge in mountain redoubts on the Iraqi side of the border. They are separatists who want an autonomous Kurdish region in the far eastern part of Turkey. The United States strongly opposes such action by Turkey, a NATO ally, because it would upset the Americans’ strongest allies in the war in Iraq – Iraqi Kurds. last_img read more
