Researchers Find Surprising Link Between Antioxidants And Cancer Researches found that cancer cells may benefit more from antioxidants than healthy cells.

A study conducted by researchers at the Children’s Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI) suggests that cancer cells actually spread throughout the body when antioxidants have been administered. The researchers state that pro-oxidants should be used to treat cancer patients instead. The mice used in the study were observed to have experienced high levels of oxidative stress. When antioxidants had been administered, the cancer cells were found to have spread more quickly in the mice that received the antioxidants than in the mice that had not received it.

Body Fat Scales: Do They Really Work? / Fitness A body fat scale is similar to a regular bathroom scale in that you step on it and it provides a digital reading. However, in addition to your weight in pounds, a body fat scale also claims to provide your body fat percentage. This can be an interesting number to track, especially for those on a weight loss regime that includes exercising. It can be frustrating when the number on the scale will not budge while you are dedicated to your exercise and healthy eating plan. This is where a body fat scale may play a useful role. It is possible that your body composition may be changing while your body weight remains the same.

Lateral ankle instability - OrthopaedicsOne Articles - OrthopaedicsOne Introduction An ankle sprain is the most common athletic injury — approximately 30,000 of these injuries occur each day in the US (1,2) — and the most common reason to see an orthopedist.(2-7) Ankle sprains are more prevalent in certain sports such as basketball, where in one study, they accounted for 13% of all injuries.(8) Historically, most physicians have recommended various forms of conservative management, with the adage, "All these injuries get better." More recently, however, careful assessment of ankle sprains has revealed that 10% to 40% result in persistent symptoms after acute injury (2,4-6,9-11) due to a number of issues: Peroneal tear or dislocation Underlying cartilage defect Chronic ankle instability

How much alcohol is safe for pregnant women? The American Academy of Pediatrics has renewed advice to pregnant women: do not drink alcohol, not even a little bit, not at all. The update of an old warning from the US surgeon general is meant as a best practices paper for clinicians, but also a warning to American mothers-to-be, the paper’s lead author said. “The real measure [of how safe alcohol is] is how much are you willing to compromise the potential health and well-being of this baby,” said Dr Janet Williams, lead author of the survey to be published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday. She emphasized there is no known “safe” level of alcohol consumption. Since the 1970s, researchers have associated prenatal drinking with neurocognitive and behavioral problems, as well as distinct facial deformities. The group of symptoms are known collectively as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, or FASD (the most severe of which is fetal alcohol syndrome).

File:Steroidogenesis.svg English: Enzymes, their cellular location, substrates and products in human steroidogenesis. Shown also is the major classes of steroid hormones: progestagens, mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, androgens and estrogens. However, they partly overlap, e.g. mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids. Future - Science & Environment - Remote-controlled protein factories Thanks to advances in biotechnology and genetic engineering, we are finding ever more complex ways of converting nature into living protein factories that serve our needs. Engineered bacterial cells can churn out medically useful proteins such as insulin, the blood-clotting agent thrombin, and a host of other human enzymes and hormones. Plants, yeast and even other mammals can be given the genes needed to produce valuable proteins that they don’t make naturally. Most famously, even notoriously, genetically modified goats can secrete spider silk in their milk, which can be extracted and used to make tough fibres.
