Two weeks ago I bought a hat made of microfiber. Micro means small.
Very small! And then I started thinking about it. What happens if some of
that fiber goes into my lungs? Are these things small enough to enter
where other materials can't? Can they enter my blood system?

Well, here is a Slashdot story: Facing the Dangers of Nanotech

"Technology Review has a Q&A with Andrew Maynard, the science
advisor for the Woodrow Wilson International Center's nanotechnology
project regarding the dangers of nanomaterials and why we have to act
now."

"Individual experiments have indicated that if you develop materials with
a nanostructure, they do behave differently in the body and in the
environment. We know from animal studies that very, very fine particles,
particles with high surface area, lead to a greater inflammatory response
than the same amount of larger particles. We also know that they can
enter the lining of the lungs and get through to the blood and enter other
organs. There is some evidence that nanoparticles can move into the
brain along the olfactory nerve, so this is completely circumventing the
blood-brain barrier."

Top 5 Reasons Breakfast Is a Must for Kids

"How many times have you heard, "breakfast is the most important meal

1. Do better in school;
2. Have more focus and concentration, more energy, and better eye-hand
coordination;
3. Have fewer behavioral problems;
4. Are more likely to meet their nutritional needs overall;
5. Have an easier time staying at a healthy weight."

Groopman: The Doctor's In, But Is He Listening?

"Most doctors, within the first 18 seconds of seeing a patient, will interrupt him
telling his story and also generate an idea in his mind [of] what's wrong. And
too often, we make what's called an anchoring mistake — we fix on that snap
judgment."

Pripravci za liječenje bolesti grla (CRO)

"Liječenje upala grla najprije započinje antisepticima kao što su iscrpina
kadulje, antiseptičke tekućine s klorheksidinom ili jodom, i ljekovite pastile
s antisepticima. Kako je vrlo česti simptom upala grla kašalj, on se može
učinkovito ublažiti raznim čajevima i sirupima na bazi biljaka kao što su
bijeli sljez, crni sljez, trputac i islandski lišaj . Najčešće su ti pripravci sasvim
dovoljni za liječenje upala grla, a samo u teškim i upornim infekcijama
opravdano je koristiti antibiotike.

Antibiotike treba što je moguće češće izbjegavati i uzimati samo onda kada
infekcija dokazano potječe od streptokokusa, jer uzimanje antibiotika kada
to nije potrebno krajnje je kontraproduktivno i vodi razvoju rezistentnih
oblika bakterija koje je nakon razvija rezistencija vrlo teško liječiti."

Slashdot: Some Soft Drinks May Damage Your DNA

"The Independent is reporting new findings that indicate a common
additive called sodium benzoate, found in soft drinks such as Fanta
and Pepsi Max among others, has the ability to switch off vital parts
of DNA in a cell's mitochondria. From the article: 'The mitochondria
consumes the oxygen to give you energy and if you damage it — as
happens in a number of diseased states — then the cell starts to
malfunction very seriously.

And there is a whole array of diseases that are now being tied to damage
to this DNA — Parkinson's and quite a lot of neuro-degenerative diseases,
but above all the whole process of aging.' European Union MPs are now
calling for an urgent investigation in the wake of these alarming new
findings."

BBC: 'My lungs are damaged beyond repair'

"Dr Kon said he had several other young patients who smoke cannabis and
have lung diseases normally seen only in older tobacco smokers.

In a 2002 report, the British Lung Foundation estimated that three to four
cannabis cigarettes a day were associated with the same amount of damage
to the lungs as 20 or more tobacco cigarettes a day."

Wired: The Truth About Autism: Scientists Reconsider What They Think They Know

"Like many people with autism, Baggs doesn't like to look you in the eye
and needs help with tasks like preparing a meal and taking a shower. In
conversation she'll occasionally grunt or sigh, but she stopped speaking
altogether in her early twenties. Instead, she types 120 words a minute,
which the DynaVox then translates into a synthesized female voice that
sounds like a deadpan British schoolteacher."

the brain about 15-20 minutes to start signaling feelings of fullness. Scientists
suppose that fast eating is a risk factor for the metabolic syndrome3, a combi-

cnn - How I survived a heart attack at age 43

"When I had my heart attack at 43, all my doctors were really surprised. I
was young, I'm not overweight, and I don't eat a lot of fatty foods.

In fact, I never eat junk food.

However, a closer look at my medical records would have suggested there
was a problem. My total cholesterol was around 400, and my triglycerides,
which are really affected by diet and exercise, were 600 to 700. A healthy
number is 150 or below."

"There are people who have a really, really strong family history of breast
cancer, so that their odds of getting it are quite high. According to one site,
if you have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, your lifetime odds of getting breast
cancer are about 36% to 85%. At that point, the reasoning becomes, well,
you're probably going to have to get it done eventually, so it becomes not
a question or whether but a question of when."

slashdot - Why Doesn't Exercise Lead To Weight Loss?

"The New York Times' Well blog reports that 'for some time, researchers
have been finding that people who exercise don't necessarily lose weight.'
A study published online in September 2009 in The British Journal of Spo-
rts Medicine was the latest to report apparently disappointing slimming
results. In the study, 58 obese people completed 12 weeks of supervised
aerobic training without changing their diets. The group lost an average of
a little more than seven pounds, and many lost barely half that. How can
that be?"

slashdot - Poor Vision? There's an App For That

"Researchers at MIT's Media Lab have developed a smartphone app that
allows users to measure how poor their vision is (myopia, hyperopia, and
astigmatism) and receive a corrective prescription. The user peers thro-
ugh a $2 optical adapter at the screen of a smartphone. The app displays
lighted bars, and prompts the user to adjust the display until the bars line
up.

Repeating this with bars in different locations and orientations allows the
vision distortion to be determined to within about 0.4 diopters using a Ne-
xus One. The iPhone 4, with its higher-resolution display, should be able
to improve that to 0.28 diopters. This could have broad application in the
developing world, where experienced opticians and diagnostic equipment
are hard to come by."

Slashdot - Training an Immune System To Kill Cancer

"Doctors removed a billion of his T-cells — a type of white blood cell that
fights viruses and tumors — and gave them new genes that would pro-
gram the cells to attack his cancer. Then the altered cells were dripped
back into Mr. Ludwig’s veins. At first, nothing happened. But after 10 days,
hell broke loose in his hospital room. He began shaking with chills. His
temperature shot up. His blood pressure shot down. He became so ill that
doctors moved him into intensive care and warned that he might die. His
family gathered at the hospital, fearing the worst. A few weeks later, the
fevers were gone. And so was the leukemia. ... In essence, the team is
using gene therapy to accomplish something that researchers have hoped
to do for decades: train a person's own immune system to kill cancer cells."

Today I found out around 85% of humans only breathe out of one nostril at a time

"For instance, a study in 1988 showed that breathing through your right nostril significantly increases blood glucose levels, while breathing through your left nostril has the opposite effect.  It is speculated from this that abnormal nasal cycles, such as breathing through your right nostril for many years without a switch, may be one cause of diabetes.

Another study in 1993 showed that when you are breathing through your right nostril you will use significantly more oxygen than when breathing through your left.

Most interestingly of all, yet another study published in 1994, showed that when you are breathing through your left nostril, the right hemisphere of your brain will be more active or dominant and vice-verse when you are breathing through your right nostril.  This can be a handy thing to know as the right hemisphere of your brain is your “creative/imaginative” side, while the left hemisphere of your brain is your “logical” side.  So forcing breathing through one nostril or the other can actually affect the way you think at a given moment."

Your Laptop Could Be Killing You: Electromagnetic Poisoning in the Digital Age

"According to researcher, doctor, and author Robert Becker, the cells in
your body use electromagnetic signals to communicate with one another,
regulating vital functions and helping to maintain homeostasis. Therefore,
the introduction of artificial electromagnetic radiation frequencies interferes
with the specific frequencies required for the body to function optimally."


"Coat your walls in anti-EMR paint, which is particularly useful in urban
areas and for those close to wireless and mobile antennas.

Be informed; use an EMR meter to establish how much EMR a device emits
before you use it."

r - Taking 3 slow, short walks of 5 minutes each reverses harmful effects of prolonged sitting for 3 hours

"Research suggests that sitting makes muscles become slack so that they
do not contract, impeding the pumping of blood to the heart. Instead, blood
pools in the legs and immediately affects endothelial function of the arteries,
a condition over the long term that shares with prolonged sitting a number
of similar, negative health outcomes such as hypertension, hypercholestero-
laemia, diabetes, septic shock, Behcet’s disease."

entcarolina - Doc, why is my voice so hoarse?

"Hoarseness is a term that describes abnormal voice changes. When
hoarse, the voice may sound breathy, raspy, strained, or there may
be changes in loudness or pitch (how high or low the voice is). The
changes in sound are usually due to disorders related to the vocal
cords that are the sound producing parts of the voice box (larynx)."

Y - The Daily Habit That Can Improve Both Sleep and Sex

"Sex and sleep have a tight relationship. Satisfying sex often leads to sleep
post-action ? especially for men, who release the slumber-inducing hormone
prolactin during orgasm. And then there?s the unsatisfying kind that makes
you want to nod off during the deed."

dailymail - One twin gave up sugar, the other gave up fat. Their
experiment could change YOUR life


"If you want to lose weight it will be much easier if you avoid processed
foods made with sugar and fat. These foods affect your brain in a com-
pletely different way from natural foods and it's hard for anyone to resist
eating too much."

Anything!

My name is Igor Korolev, and I am a resident physician in psychiatry at the

r - ELI5:Why do boobs vary so much in size, many being 4x larger
than others, but no other body part , like hands and feet, can be 4x
larger than others, generally speaking.


"Because estrogen weakens the immune system, it's bad for the overall
'quality' of the woman. So only women with very good genes and very good
health can have breasts that are both large and symmetrical. Because it's
easy for parts of this to go wrong, you get lots of variability."

digest - A daily cold shower seems to have some psychological benefits

"Exposing your body to cold water has been promoted as a health tonic since
at least the Roman period, so it's about time we gave this a thorough
investigation. In a new paper in PLOS One Geert Buijze and his colleagues
report on the health and wellbeing effects of the 'cool challenge' - a 30-day
event in the Netherlands that involved more than 3000 people taking daily
showers that ran cold for at least the last 30 seconds each time."

Caffeine may counter age-related inflammation

A chronic inflammatory process that occurs in some, but not all, older people may trigger cardiovascular problems, a new Stanford study shows. Part of the solution might be found in a cup of coffee.

y - Bye-bye fillings! Alzheimer's drug lets teeth repair themselves

"The human body is able to heal small amounts of dental damage, by acti-
vating the tooth contact stem cells in the tooth's soft inner core, known as
the pulp. In situations such as tiny cracks or fissures, these cells are stimu-
lated to differentiate into specific tooth cells. Known as odontoblasts, these
cells can then make new dentine and replace the area that is damaged."

Study Finds Yoga Can Help Back Pain, But Keep It Gentle, With These Poses

"During the class, trained instructors guide participants through gentle poses,
including cat-cow, triangle pose and child's pose. Simple relaxation techniques
are part of the class as well. More difficult poses, such as inversions, are
avoided.

A guidebook that details the poses taught during the class is freely available,
as is a teacher training manual."

risk for either mild cognitive impairment, or full-blown dementia. In their study,
those consuming the highest levels of fat actually demonstrated a 44% reduc-

jutarnji [hr] - LIJECNIK IZ BOLNICE KOJA SE NALAZI U SAMOM SRCU EPIDEMIJE KORONAVIRUSA 'Lijecnici rade 12 sati, ne idu na wc i ne jedu jer nam fali zastitne opreme'

"Ovaj lijecnik je proveo i mini istrazivanje na 138 pacijenata zarazenih viru-
som izmedu 7. i 28. sijecnja iz kojeg je utvrdio da je u gotovo 99 posto
slucajeva prvi simptom kod zarazenih osoba vrucica, potom malaksalost
u 70 posto slucajeva, kasalj u 60 posto slucajeva, bolovi u misicima u 38,4
posto slucajeva, te teskoce s disanjem u 31,2 posto slucajeva. Ako se
simptomi pogorsaju tijekom drugog tjedna ljudi bi trebali otici u bolnicu,
smatra Peng. Taj je tjedna kljucan u tome hoce li se stanje pacijenta
pogorsati ili poboljsati."

Reporter's Notebook: Life and death in a Wuhan coronavirus ICU

"In the third week, keeping some of these acute patients alive might require
extraordinary intervention. For this group, the death rate seems to be 4 per
cent to 5 per cent, Dr Peng said. After working his 12-hour daytime shifts,
the doctor spends his evenings researching the disease and has summarised
his observations in a thesis.

The doctors and nurses at his hospital are overwhelmed with patients. Once
they don protective hazmat suits, they go without food, drink and bathroom
breaks for their entire shifts. That's because there aren't enough of the suits
for a mid-shift change, he said."

r - Maria Theresa of Austria had her children inoculated against smallpox after the epidemic of 1767

"It started off with a guy who wanted to get rich by peddling his own type of
vaccine. He falsified data in a study he wrote. He got caught and lost his
medical license. Some people only heard about the study and not that it was
false. So they latched on to that. In the past 5 years or so, the Russian troll
farms have been peddling it as well causing the anti-vaxx movement to grow.

It is crazy how all this has happened in the past 20 years.

That 'Doctor' was/is Andrew Wakefield."

y - Drinking up to 5 cups of coffee a day has no long-term dangers and
could even reduce risk of chronic illness, according to a review of 95
studies on coffee-drinkers


"Coffee is associated with a wide range of health benefits, including a lower risk
of obesity, since the caffeine it contains can boost metabolism and intensify the
calorie-burning power of the digestive system.

... Caffeine can also increase mental focus and also benefit brain health,
particularly as we age -- caffeine appears to be linked to a decreased risk of
Parkinsons. Coffee, in moderation, is also linked to a lower risk of depression
and suicide."

y - A Dietitian Breaks Down the Best Spices and Herbs For Digestion

"If you are intimidated by ingredients that may seem unfamiliar, like dandelion
root, Shapiro suggested using them to make tea.

You simply steep the ingredients either fresh, dry, ground or in a tea bag in
hot water and sip when you feel you need the support, she told me. Ginger
and turmeric are a bit more versatile, and can be used in smoothies, stir-frys,
and chicken soup."
