  • HANDMADE COPPER WATER BOTTLE 
#Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vital to #humanhealth. 
Our bodies cannot synthesize copper. You will need to get it from dietary sources.

According to #Ayurveda, drinking copper-enriched #water in the morning on an empty stomach helps all three Doshas (#Kapha, #Vata, and #Pitta). This also ensures proper functioning of different organs and several metabolic processes.

Some of the #AlimentaryBenefits 
of Copper are:

It is known to be oligodynamic in nature (the sterilizing effect of metals on #bacteria). It is especially effective against E.coli and S.aureus, two bacteria that are commonly found in our environment and are known to cause severe illnesses in the human body.

It helps cleanse and detox your stomach to ensure proper elimination of waste and harmful products.

  • La salmonelosis

Es un tipo de intoxicación alimentaria causada por la bacteria salmonella (bacterias que por lo general viven en los intestinos de los animales y humanos y se expulsan a través de las heces). Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) son los reptiles junto a las aves los portadores principales.

  • Overt hyperthyroidism in pregnancy has a prevalence of 0.1–0.4%, Graves disease accounts for 85% of these cases, followed by HCG-mediated hyperthyroidism. An obstetrician should review women with a history, or new diagnosis of hyperthyroidism in pregnancy.
.
The presence of thyrotrophic receptor antibodies distinguishes Graves’ disease from HCG-mediated hyperthyroidism. This is important to diagnose as they have possess different fetal risks and require different management.
.
In Graves disease, the circulating maternal antibodies have the potential to cross the placenta and cause fetal hyperthyroidism. Maternal antibodies should be checked when pregnancy is confirmed, at 18–22 weeks and at 30–34 weeks to evaluate the need for neonatal and postnatal monitoring. If antibodies are elevated, the fetus will require serial ultrasounds to assess fetal growth and signs of fetal hyperthyroidism.
.
Propylthiouracil (PTU) is the treatment of choice in any woman with Graves disease planning to fall pregnant or in the first trimester as carbimazole is associated with a rare developmental fetal abnormality. During the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, switching to carbimazole has been suggested due to the risk of fulminant hepatitis (necrosis and decreased size of the liver) with PTU.
.
Maternal risks of poor thyroid control include: severe preeclampsia, thyroid storm and cardiac issues while fetal risks include: miscarriage, low birth weight and preterm delivery, tachycardia, intrauterine growth restrictions and hydrops (severe oedema in the newborn).

  • Adam Perez, who reportedly was homeless prior to the infection, said that so far he has required several surgeries and has lost most of the flesh on his right lower leg.“I’m never going to be the same anymore,” Perez, of Corpus Christi, told mysanantonio.com “I know I’m not going to walk normal.” Perez told the news outlet that while he didn’t have any open wounds while he was visiting Waters Edge Park, he did have a fungal infection on his right toe, which gave enough of an opening for the vibrio bacteria to enter his system. Most patients contract vibriosis by eating raw or undercooked shellfish, but it can also cause a skin infection when an open wound is exposed to saltwater or brackish water. According to the CDC, those with compromised immune systems, especially chronic liver disease patients, are more likely to get vibriosis. 
The CDC estimates that approximately 80,000 cases of vibriosis occur each year, with severity ranging based on the bacteria strain.The 42-year-old told MySanAntonio.com that he was given antibiotics for swelling a few days after the incident, but a giant blister formed on his foot, and he was rushed to the emergency room where he underwent his first of several surgeries.“Really sucks being hospitalized,” Perez wrote on facebook. “Caught infection with beach water in Corpus Christi. Had surgery yesterday and again today. Another one either Monday or Tuesday. More surgeries coming until healed.” Post-surgery photos show Perez’s raw leg after several layers of the infection were cut away.

  • Each of you are made up of more bacteria than human cells (approx 1.3:1) and each of you are valid.

Bacteria make this world go round and like sexual orientation and gender identity they are often hidden from sight.

Visibility is everything, though. Like we can see proof of the bacteria as the bread rises, this month and throughout the year we show our pride by hanging flags and supporting each other.

You are welcome here. Take care of each other. The more we lift each other up, the better this world will become.

  • A flexible flagella “tail” allows bacteria to thin the liquid in which they’re swimming and free themselves when trapped along walls or obstacles, new research suggests.
This finding could influence the control of bacterial growth on medical, industrial, and agricultural surfaces.

The new study used mathematical models to understand how bacteria with flagella—a collection of spinning hairs used for propulsion that act together like a tail—overcome forces from the flow of a liquid and navigate complex environments.Bacteria are the most abundant organisms on the planet and are often found in liquids,” says Mykhailo Potomkin, research associate in mathematics at Penn State and an author of the study. “We know from recent experimental studies that bacteria can reduce the effective viscosity—the internal friction—of a solution, which helps them move more easily.#microbiologist #microbe #bacteria #virus #microbiologylab

  • To drink this classic Canadian cocktail, you’ll need a strong stomach and immune system.Since 1973, the Yukon’s downtown hotel has been serving up the legendary Sourtoe, a whiskey shot garnished with a dehydrated human toe.The strange elixir went viral this week when the bar received three fresh new toes from former Royal Marine Nick Griffiths, who had them amputated after getting frostbite while competing in the Yukon Arctic ultra-marathon. He spotted a want ad posted by the hotel, seeking toes, and duly provided his, the guardian reports.But the strange concoction could make daredevil drinkers sick to their stomach, so according to one doctor.“This is the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen in my life, and I see a lot of disgusting stuff,” Dr. Rabia De Latour, gastroenterologist and assistant professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health, tells The Post.“What’s concerning to me even more is that they’re reusing it, so people are having it touch their mouths,” she says.

Indeed, the bar’s rule for earning a certificate of Sourtoe consumption is, “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips have gotta touch the toe.”Short of a formal test, there’s no way to know what kind of diseases are fermenting on the Sourtoe’s.“Whiskey in particular is really good at killing bacteria it’s more acidic than other alcohols.”The fact that the toe is mummified also helps stave off neurodegenerative brain diseases, called prions, like mad cow, which can prove fatal.“Most bacteria and viruses will die if something has been dehydrated and mummified like this,” she says.

  • Networks of Viruses May Help Bacteria Evolve Faster

A newly discovered mechanism may enable viruses to shuttle genes between bacteria 1,000 times as often as was thought — making them a major force in those cells’ evolution.

Viruses called bacteriophages (red) attack a bacterial cell in this artist’s conception. Scientists have discovered that such viruses can transfer genes between bacteria much more frequently than was thought — an arrangement that may benefit both the viruses and the bacteria.

  • In 1870, our hero Louis P was so angry that Germany had achieved victory over France in the Franco-Prussian war that it began to effect his research. 
He decided to look into ways of improving the processes of beer production and storage; thus bringing victory back to France and to his fellow Frenchmen. 
We imagine that his stream of consciousness developed as follows....
“Germany bad! France good! 
Must get back at Germany for crushing military defeat. 
Germany loves beer. 
Will study beer for ways to make beer better. 
When French beer is better than German beer, will humiliate Germany and bring BEAUCOUP honor back to France. 🇫🇷: 1 🇩🇪: 0
Vive la France!!!!” This relentless pursuit inspired by a rivalry sparked an intellectual curiosity that lead to the discovery of microorganisms, better understanding of the mechanisms of fermentation, development of the process of Pasteurization and finally the development of The Germ Theory Of Diseases. 
What #oddlysatisfying lesson is to be learned from this? Be petty and you too can save the world! 🌎 🍺 🦠 🌍

  • Professor Martel’s works get support from Movember Foundation and Prostate Cancer Canada

A research project led by Professor Sylvain Martel will receive $1.5 million over a three-year period to accelerate the transition of existing knowledge into a clinical application for prostate cancer treatment.

Prostate Cancer Canada and The Movember Foundation announced they will fund a research project led by Professor Sylvain Martel, holder of the Canada Research Chair in Medical Nanorobotics and Director of the Polytechnique Montréal Nanorobotics Laboratory, where bacteria is used as a delivery service for prostate cancer drug. This project has been selected because of its with very real potential to make a tangible difference in the lives of men living with aggressive forms of prostate cancer.

Dr. Martel and his team are focused on improving the accuracy and speed of drug delivery to sites where prostate cancer cells have spread, which will lead to better therapeutic effects while reducing toxicity for the patient. In order to accomplish this, they are proposing innovative delivery vehicles that have exceptional propulsion, sensory, and navigation capabilities – bacteria. Using special bacteria that cause no significant immune response, they will conduct human-scale studies with the aim of introducing these natural nanorobots as key delivery agents in the treatment of prostate cancers. “The road from research discoveries to real-world impact can be long and winding, and it is for that very reason that projects such as these are so exciting,” explained Dr. Stuart Edmonds, Prostate Cancer Canada’s Vice President of Research, Health Promotion and Survivorship. “The Movember Foundation’s mission is to stop men dying too young, and this pioneering project represent an incredible opportunity to do exactly that,” said Paul Villanti, Movember Foundation’s Director of Programmes. “It is only through the efforts of our amazing community of fundraisers in Canada that we are in a position to take these promising new treatment methods for men from the lab that vital step closer to clinical practice. We are hugely grateful to these incredible indi

  • Why some kids keep getting infected tonsils — and how to fix it
Tonsil infections are a recurrent nightmare of pain for many children, who ultimately may require tonsillectomies. Others are scarcely bothered by them.

A study led by scientists from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology suggests a reason for this difference, and how these childhood infections might be one day be prevented.

The scientists examined tonsils removed at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego. Some tonsils had previously been repeatedly infected with Group A Strep bacteria, a major reason for tonsillectomies. Other tonsils were removed because they obstructed breathing during sleep, but had not been repeatedly infected.

Tonsils that had been repeatedly infected showed evidence of reduced immune capacity, they found. And some infections were associated with a genetic difference.

  • New online course available.

Students will learn about the organisms which are composed of prokaryotic cells---prokaryotes---the ways in which they are fundamentally different than most other life on the planet, and the fundamental roles these microorganisms play in the world.  They will learn the modifications (virulence factors) that pathogenic bacteria use to cause disease.  Students will also discover how antibiotics work, how antibiotic resistance occurs, and how to halt the spread of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
As with all Kristin Moon Science courses, students proceed at their own pace through the material.  Videos, hands-on activities, and links to additional information are included to enhance the learning experience.  Directions for three optional lab activities are included.

  • HOW IT WORKS: The Jekyll and Hyde skin microbiome

There is no such thing as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ bacteria. But they can have a Jekyll and Hyde dual personality. 
Most of the time, they ‘behave’ as expected and there is a healthy and harmonious balance between our skin and the microbes that live on it. However, environmental stresses and other factors can cause our skin microbes to behave in an unexpected manner, resulting in skin conditions or inflammations.
Recent research suggests that this transformation also plays a role in the etiology of common chronic skin inflammatory conditions like eczema and acne. Most exciting is that the biochemistry of the transformation offers new targeted therapeutic approaches for prevention and treatment of these common skin problems. 
Dr. Greg Hillebrand discusses the potential that research has to offer in this field. Find our more in our blog... 🧐😱🤐😨🤓 #thesecretlifeofskin #skinmicrobiome #skin #skincare #microbiome #skinconditions #good #bad #bacteria #drjekyll #mrhyde #eczema #acne
