Food ban is not beneficial

In most cases, the food banks are implemented as a way of improving healthy living through healthy lifestyles. However, this is not among the successful processes in different ways. Studies have shown that this process is resulting to too much risk to the individuals and the environment despite the plans for better living.

Levels of health issues

The bans involve eradication of the unintended food products such as the recent ban of the Trans fats. The fats result to high levels of health issues as such as contributing to high chances of heart diseases and obesity among other. However, this process is not successful despite the legislation measures for the control of the fats because the manufacturers are using these opportunity to replace the fats with other types of oils.

Young and unrelated donors with high counts of T cells

Donor and a patient that match T cells have low chances for relapse of the disease after transplant.

Importance of T cells in stem transplants

In the stem cell transplants the cells are replaced with new cells thus identification of healthy stem cells is essential to prevent future heath related issues such as disease relapse. According to a recent study in the journal of clinical oncology, matching the patients is one key factor in a transplant process. In addition, the study suggests that unrelated donors with high number of the t cells counts are the best donors for the stem transplants patients.

MRI evidence indicates changes in brain may occur prior to amyloidal deposition. It develops gradually especially affects ADAD mutant carriers.

Alzheimer disease is fatal and according to researchers, it has no cure. Its predisposition affects the mutant carriers and thus can develop early especially among the children carrying genetic mutation for the disease. According to research by Quiroz in the department of psychiatry in Massachusetts general hospital, suggest that ADAD mutant carriers can develop as early as possible among the children with a high certainty unlike the non-carriers who have no brain abnormalities.

Cystic fibrosis-The genetic disease

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects people causing serious Lund and digestive problems. Despite the specialty in health care for Hispanic patients, cystic fibrosis is a great challenge that increases the mortality rate among these patients. According to the study by Stanford university school of medicine, there are genetic differences between the Hispanic with and without cystic fibrosis.

Besides these, there are also other genes that alter unexpectedly causing diabetes. These conditions are usually passed on from one family member to the next. Many of the causes of obesity and diabetes have been found out by medics and ways to control them discovered. However, there still are many others that are yet to be discovered and it is still uncertain how many people suffer from these undiscovered mutated genes.

People experience different types and amounts of pain after surgery. However, it is the aim of every health care provider to ensure a successful surgery and a better way to control the pain. Therefore, researchers have undertaken some measures to investigate ion how to reduce and control the pain after mastectomy. As a result, a team of researchers forms Mayo clinic carried out a research on the importance of intra-operative local infiltration particularly with liposomal bupivacaine.

Additionally, genetic variances make it even more complicated to treat the condition with new treatments. Medics need to do more research on whether these new medications would be effective for the minority groups, explains Dr. MyMyBuu who works at the pulmonary medicine department in the department in Stanford university school of medicine in Palo Alto, Calif. He adds that they are trying to make advancements in the field to avoid any differences. The medics are also studying what causes these differences.

Boy born with no eyes, nose and jaw

Wonder in medical science

It is still a miracle that Yahya El Jabaly lived past the day he was born. He did not have eyes or the upper jaw. He also had a huge hole on his forehead, the site where the nose should have been located. He is now three years old after he survived an eighteen hour reconstructive surgery and his star is still shining bright.
