How to Get a Complete Workout with Nothing But Your Body. Medica. Physical Health & Longevity. Dynamic (effortful) touch. Dynamic or effortful touch is a subsystem of the haptic perceptual system (Gibson, 1966). It is the most common form of touch, hardly noticed as such, and rarely studied (until recently). Its commonplace nature is conveyed by the multiplicity of words in the lexicon needed to capture its variant forms. For example, perceiving by: supporting, shaking, lifting, hefting, wielding, pushing, pulling, probing, chewing, prodding, groping, bending, stretching, striking, tugging, folding, twisting, squeezing, turning, rolling, vibrating, and so on.
Dynamic (effortful) touch addresses the nature of touch as expressed in Figures 1 and 2. Figure 1: (a) Perception is of environmental properties (exteroception), body properties (proprio-ception), the environment relative to the body (exproprioception), and the body relative to the environment (proexteroception). Methods for studying dynamic touch Figure 3: (a-j) Dynamic touch experiments use object sets that vary the moments of the mass distribution. EveryONE. New bone formation in a lesion of the pelvis. Cancer, the transformation of normal cells into malignant tumor cells, reigns among diseases as one of the leading causes of death around the world.
In 2012, cancer claimed 8.2 million lives, and numbers continue to increase each year. While our understanding of cancer is far from complete, we’ve been able to attribute some of the killer’s virulence to increased environmental risk: Increased pollutants and other environmental carcinogens, coupled with an average increase in tobacco and alcohol use and added to a concurrent decrease in daily exercise, cumulatively represent significant risk factors directly related to an increasingly modern world.
Ironically, we humans also live a lot longer than we used to, which increases the disease’s chances of occurring. Map of modern Sudan showing the archaeological site of Amara West.

How human culture influences our genetics. You shouldn't be able to drink milk. Your ancestors couldn't. It is only in the last 9,000 years that human adults have gained that ability without becoming ill. Children could manage it, but it was only when we turned to dairy farming that adults acquired the ability to properly digest milk. It turns out that cultures with a history of dairy farming and milk drinking have a much higher frequency of lactose tolerance – and its associated gene – than those who don't. Drinking milk is just one of example of the way that traditions and cultural practices can influence the path of our evolution. Culture and genetics are traditionally thought of as two separate processes, but researchers are increasingly realising that they are intimately connected, each influencing the natural progression of the other.
Another example of how culture influences our genes is the relationship between yam farming and malaria resistance. But there are some people who seem to have a natural defense force. 6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition. Sayer JiWaking Times It may come as a surprise to some, especially those with conventional medical training, but the default state of the body is one of ceaseless regeneration. Without the flame-like process of continual cell turnover within the body – life and death ceaselessly intertwined – the miracle of the human body would not exist.
In times of illness, however, regenerative processes are overcome by degenerative ones. This is where medicine may perform its most noble feat, nudging the body back into balance with foods, herbs, nutrients, healing energies, i.e. healing intention. Today, however, drug-based medicine invariably uses chemicals that have not one iota of regenerative potential; to the contrary, they almost always interfere with bodily self-renewal in order to suppress the symptoms against which they are applied.
Nerve Regeneration – There are actually a broad range of natural compounds with proven nerve-regenerative effects.

DiscoveryPerfecting Sound Quality In-ear An audio pioneer who has worked with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd continues to provide innovative devices to perfect sound quality and alleviate in-ear pressure and listener fatigue December 18, 2012 An audio pioneer who has worked with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd, Stephen Ambrose is on a quest to perfect sound quality. His most recent innovation is a modification for ear buds, hearing aids and other in-ear devices that alleviates pressure and its subsequent "listener fatigue"--the discomfort and even pain some people experience with devices that seal the ear canal.
To better understand what led to this discovery, we must look back to Ambrose's musical career, which led to his founding of Asius Technologies. As a musician, Ambrose wanted an alternative to temperamental stage monitors, which required very particular volume controls to function properly, and gave distracting feedback. Micro Monitor. 7 Insane Ways Music Affects The Body (According to Science)
The world is chock full of ear hurt that some people willingly refer to as music. The Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga, Conway Twitty; they all produce high quality records and 8-tracks for our enjoyment whether we like it or not. But music--even terrible music--has a stunning amount of power over our bodies. For instance science says music can... Slapping neuroscience right across the face, music is able to take stroke, lesion or other brain-damaged patients who have lost the partial ability to see or speak and return it to them. The Kenny Rogers Effect--not named because it deals with gorging yourself on chicken or replacing your old, grandfatherly face with a shiny new rubber one--takes patients with visual neglect, the inability to recognize half of what they see, and lightens the effects of the damage. Patients who only shave half their face or grab for the right boob at a strip club can now put that dollar bill in the left or right side of her thong.

Single Antibody is Broadly Effective Against a Variety of Human Cancer Tumors. In a new study, a team of scientists have shown that a single antibody shrinks variety of human tumors transplanted into mice, finding that anti-CD47 antibodies can dramatically inhibit the growth of human solid tumors by blocking the ability of CD47 to transmit the ‘don’t-eat-me’ signal to macrophages. Human tumors transplanted into laboratory mice disappeared or shrank when scientists treated the animals with a single antibody, according to a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine.
The antibody works by masking a protein flag on cancer cells that protects them from macrophages and other cells in the immune system. The scientists achieved the findings with human breast, ovarian, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate cancer samples. The antibody treatment also significantly inhibited the ability of the tumors to metastasize throughout the animals’ bodies. The research was published online March 26 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

In a study published in late 2011 in Nature, Stanford University geneticist Anne Brunet and colleagues described a series of experiments that caused nematodes raised under the same environmental conditions to experience dramatically different lifespans. Some individuals were exceptionally long-lived, and their descendants, through three generations, also enjoyed long lives. Clearly, the longevity advantage was inherited.
This type of finding—an inherited difference that cannot be explained by variations in genes themselves—has become increasingly common, in part because scientists now know that genes are not the only authors of inheritance.

Black Death Is 'Grandmother' of All Modern Plague. The bacterium blamed for the Black Death that wiped out more than a third of Europe's population within about five years of the 14th century looks an awful lot like the modern versions of the plague-causing bug, new genetic research indicates.
By taking the now-powdery black pulp out of the teeth of plague victims buried in London's East Smithfield Cemetery — a cemetery established solely to handle the onslaught of the Black Death once it arrived in the city in 1348 — researchers have managed to reconstruct the entire genetic blueprint, or genome, of the bacterium blamed for the devastation. Since science already have the same information for modern strains of plague bacteria, this gave the researchers the chance to explore perplexing questions about plague. [Pictures of A Killer: A Plague Gallery] Since genetic changes don't appearto explain this change in behavior, the researchers suggest an alternative: The 14th-century bug hit at a time when Europeans were already down.

Vaccination Scam - CDC Scam: Flu Vaccine Causes Fetal Deaths Up 4250% CDC Scam: Flu Vaccine Causes Fetal Deaths Up 4250% by CHRISTINA ENGLAND (VACTRUTH) (November 26, 2012) Documentation received from the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) states that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden combined flu vaccinations have increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250 percent in pregnant women.
Eileen Dannemann, NCOW's director, made abundantly clear that despite these figures being known to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the multiple-strain, inactivated flu vaccine containing mercury (Thimerosal) has once again been recommended to pregnant women as a safe vaccination this season. Outraged by the CDC's total disregard for human life, Ms.

Vaccination Scam - UK Govt Conspiracy Coverup: Vaccines Don't Work. (April 23, 2014) Merck's Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time Dr. Dalbergue (pictured here), a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, was interviewed in the April 2014 issue of the French magazine Principes de Sante (Health Principles). You can read it here (in French): Excerpts: "The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless! "Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.
"Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! "Cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine. Polish study: Vaccines carry the potential to do tremendous harm The authors of this powerful new review wrote: “It is not reasonable to assume that manipulation of the immune system through an increasing number of vaccinations during critical periods of brain development will not result in adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes.” Here’s what they found. A new scientific review from Poland discusses irreparable harm done by vaccines. This review addresses the issue in terms of adverse effects, immune system effects, neurological symptoms following vaccination, and a history of vaccines demonstrating little benefit. It centers mostly on studies not often referenced in the western world, providing fresh and broad-ranging information. An honest reading of the study can leave little doubt that harm done may be extensive and often permanent.
Adverse Effects Their study leaves little doubt that vaccines produce serious risks that are entirely out of line with any benefits gained.

When a cluster of skin infections in upstate New York last fall led back to one tattoo artist, local public health officials took the usual step of investigating the artist's hygiene practices. They found that all of his equipment and methods were sanitary, but the nationally distributed ink he had been using, even in unopened bottles, wasn't.
Soon, similar investigations in Colorado, Washington and Iowa turned up harmful strains of bacteria in three other brands of ink. At least 22 skin infections across the four states were linked to contaminated ink, according to research reported Wednesday (Aug. 22) in the New England Journal of Medicine. The offending pathogen in the New York outbreak was identified as Mycobacterium chelonae, a relative of the bacteria behind tuberculosis and leprosy that is commonly found in tap water.
So should American adults, one of five of whom now reportedly sport indelible ink, be afraid to get a new tat? The answer to the second question is a definite no.
