All You Need To Know About Cryptosporidium - YeastInfection.Org by Eric Bakker N.D. Cryptosporidium is a parasite which was first identified in 1907 by a scientist called Tyzzer and which can cause an illness called Cryptosporiodiosis. The main offenders when it comes to strains are Cryptosporidium hominis and Cryptosporidium parvum although other strains can sometimes be contracted by humans. Unfortunately this illness most commonly affects children particularly those in the age range of 1-5, and although it is self-limiting it can cause digestive issues including mild or severe watery diarrhea which is distressing to those in this age group. Others who are particularly susceptible to infestation and become symptomatic are those people, including adults, who have an impaired immune response.Signs and Symptoms of Cryptosporidium The most widely recognized symptom of a cryptosporidium infestation is watery diarrhea. This can be mild but more often it is quite severe if relatively short-lived. Related articles: Causes of Cryptosporidium Best Diet for Cryptosporidium

Dietary Interventions for Night Shift Workers: A Literature Review 1. Introduction Shift workers are people who work rotating shifts, irregular shifts, evening shifts, afternoon shifts, morning shifts, or split shifts [1]. In Australia, shift workers make up 16% of employees aged 15 years and over, comprising 1.4 million people [1]. Shift workers are known to have elevated cardiometabolic risk factors including higher levels of triglycerides, and lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol [2]. To explain the prevalence of such diseases within the general shift work population, poor sleep quality and low sleep duration have been linked with increased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis [13,14,15,16]. Night shift workers face disruptions to their circadian rhythm, but there is a lack of direct data investigating the effects of circadian dysregulation, along with factors that influence it in this population. 4. This is the first literature review to focus on dietary interventions exclusively among night shift workers. 1.

The Lancet: Climate change and NCDs The 21st session of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (Nov 30–Dec 11, 2015; Paris, France) marked the 11th meeting of those countries who endorsed the Kyoto Protocol—an agreement that set binding greenhouse gas reduction targets, in an attempt to mitigate the effects of such emissions on climate change. The Protocol, drawn up in 1997 and officially enforced from 2005, required 37 industrialised nations, plus the European Community, to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 2012, to achieve a worldwide decrease of 5·2% compared with concentrations in 1990. Although 192 countries ratified the Protocol (the USA being a notable exception), many countries that were classed as rapidly developing at the time of its drafting—including India and China—were exempt. The need for countries to act on climate change is enshrined in one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 13), which calls on countries “to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact”.

Opioids compared with placebo or other treatments for chronic low back pain: an update of the Cochrane Review. - PubMed - NCBI Mannan oligosaccharides trigger multiple defence responses in rice and tobacco as a novel danger‐associated molecular pattern - Zang - 2019 - Molecular Plant Pathology Introduction Unlike vertebrate animals, plants rely entirely on an innate immune system for their resistance against various pathogens. Plant innate immune response has two layers: pattern‐triggered immunity (PTI) and effector‐triggered immunity (ETI) (Chisholm et al., 2006; Jones and Dangl, 2006). Oligosaccharides are low molecular weight saccharide polymers with degrees of polymerization (DP) between 2 and 10, mainly derived from plant cellulose or hemicellulose like pectins, xyloglucans, cellodextrins etc. Bacillus spp., a typical plant growth promoting rhizobacteria, can promote plant growth by improving the availability of nutrients, producing phytostimulators like indole‐3‐acetic acid (IAA), and protecting plants against various pathogen infections by activating plant innate immunity (Lugtenberg and Kamilova, 2009). In our previous study, we identified a novel thermostable mannanase BpMan5, which was encoded by Bacillus pumilus GBSW19 (Zang et al., 2015). Results Discussion

Caprylic Acid Fights Candida, Infections & Acne Caprylic acid is a type of beneficial saturated fatty acid that has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Found in healing foods like coconut and coconut oil, cow’s milk, and human breast milk, it’s been linked to prevention of urinary tract infections, bladder infections, Candida virus, sexually transmitted diseases, oral infections like gingivitis and many other conditions. As one of the three primary fatty acids (along with capric acid and lauric acid) found in coconut oil, caprylic acid has recently become widely known for its antifungal effects, especially in regard to keeping the digestive and reproductive organs — including the bladder, gut and urethra — functioning properly. One of the most popular uses for caprylic oil, whether consumed as part of foods or taken orally in tablet form, is preventing the overgrowth of yeast-like fungus that can live and grow in your intestines.

Chrononutrition and Polyphenols: Roles and Diseases In the last few years, there has been increasing recognition of the impact of the biological clock on nutrition, with different effects on energy balance and metabolism and influences on health and diseases. This concept has led to the development of a new discipline known as chrononutrition [21], which was first mentioned in a Japanese book about nutrition and health published in 2005 [22]. Since then, chrononutrition has emerged as a research field focused on the study of the interactions between biological rhythms, nutrition, and metabolism [21]. Specifically, chrononutrition involves not only how the timing of food intake and biological rhythms may affect health, metabolism, and nutrition but also on how nutrition (composition and size of meal) may affect our internal clock system [23]. The majority of the clinical studies carried out in this field have mainly focused on the effects of meal timing.
