Paramedics can reduce someone's chances of having a cardiac arrest or dying by 50 percent by immediately administering a mixture of glucose, insulin and potassium ("GIK") to people having a heart attack, according to research presented March 27 at the American College of Cardiology's 61st Annual Scientific Session.
"When started immediately in the home or on the way to the hospital -- even before the diagnosis is completely established -- GIK appears to reduce the size of heart attacks and to reduce by half the risk of having a cardiac arrest or dying,"
On average, 2 percent of the heart tissue was destroyed by the heart attack in people receiving GIK, compared with 10 percent in those who received the placebo

LONGEVITY - Young Blood Reverses Signs of Aging in Old Mice

Over time, blood stem cells (shown in green) lose their ability to replenish blood. Researchers have discovered that exposing old mice to circulating blood from younger mice restores this ability.
A mysterious substance in blood rejuvenates blood-forming stem cells.
New research from Harvard University, an unspecified factor in the blood of young mice can reverse signs of aging in the circulatory system of older ones. It's not yet clear how these changes affect the animals' overall health or longevity.
The regenerative power of young blood appears to be mediated by osteoblasts--bone-forming stem cells previously shown to play a role in regulating blood-forming stem cells. Researchers found that osteoblasts from old animals can make blood-forming stem cells from young mice act old. And conversely, surgically exposing old mice to young blood rejuvenates aged osteoblasts, restoring their capacity to properly regulate blood-forming stem cells.
Researchers haven't yet identified the mysterious molecule in blood that controls these aging effects. But insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a hormone that has been shown to regulate longevity in a number of organisms, may play a key role. Researchers found that they could partially correct aging defects in osteoblasts by suppressing IGF-1
Older mice produce fewer lymphocytes, which respond to viruses and other pathogens. And they produce more myeloid cells, which tend to promote inflammatory conditions.

BRAIN - NEUROSCIENCE of your brain on fiction

The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated.
'The singer had a velvet voice' and 'He had leathery hands' roused the sensory cortex, while phrases matched for meaning, like 'The singer had a pleasing voice' and 'He had strong hands,' did not.
Fiction — with its redolent details, imaginative metaphors and attentive descriptions of people and their actions — offers an especially rich replica.  Individuals who frequently read fiction seem to be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and see the world from their perspective.In preschool-age children: the more stories they had read to them, the keener their theory of mind (the  capacity of the brain to construct a map of other people’s intentions ) - an effect that was also produced by watching movies but, curiously, not by watching television. Stories and dramas can help us understand the complexities of social life.Reading great literature, it has long been averred, enlarges and improves us as human beings. Brain science shows this claim is truer than we imagined.

'We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.
The inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease -it is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.
The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.
The culprits of chronic inflammation are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

FOODS - Wash’n’Wipes for Fruits and Veggies Can Keep Produce Fresh Longer

Water doesn’t remove wax or fecal residue which seals in debris and bacteria.   Water is useless when it comes to salmonella. Eat Cleaner is a blend of plant- and citrus-based ingredients, including citric acid found in fruits and vegetables, sodium citrate, citric acid salt, calcium ascorbate, sea salt, a natural preservative and anti-bacterial, and vegetable glycerin. It contains no alcohol, is tasteless, odorless, and low-sudsing. Washing food and surfaces (even hands) with Eat Cleaner makes it safer and also prolongs shelf life, inhibiting browning.  Eat Cleaner was tested to remove at least 99 percent of Atrazine and Simizine pesticides.

Healing in the Old Way: Stanford Med Students Learn about traditional medicine from the Winnemem Wintu tribe

as part of their Rural and American Indian Health Disparities class.
the Winnemem Wintu - 125 members in Jones Valley, at the Rosebud Reservation - have inhabited the McCloud watershed for at least 6,000 years - in Western South Dakota
Spiritual Leader and Chief Caleen Sisk has learned from Florence Jones - an internationally known traditional healer and Indian doctor. When she was unsure if she'd know how to choose the right medicine for her patients, Sisk said  'Don't worry, they'll tell you' referring to the spirit beings, which, according to the tribe, inhabit their sacred fires and sacred sites.

Today, the tribe's access to their traditional medicines is severely limited because many natural growing places exist on private land, were submerged beneath Shasta Lake when the Shasta Dam was built, or are rendered toxic by pesticide sprays used by government agencies to keep roadways clear of vegetation. Even today, in addition to Western medicine, the tribe continues to use plants, herbs and teas that can help everything from ulcers and bronchitis to cancer. They even have a root that can grow hair, though it might turn it yellow, tribal members said. "Now if a patient says they're seeing a traditional healer, I think we would encourage them, and see that as an important resource' says Rebecca Stellato, who took the class as an undergraduate and is now studying federal Indian law at Georgetown.

BRAIN - Discovery Health "Top 10 Brain Myths"

The human brain it's made of approximately 100 billion nerve cells called neurons (contain a cell body, an axon, or cable-like projection, and dendrites, which are nerve endings). There are 4 main lobes on the exterior of the brain: Frontal (thoughts), Temporal (smell and sound), Parietal (sense processing) and Occipital (sight). The Cingulate sulcus is a brain fold. The Corpus callosum plays the important role of connecting the Left and Right cerebral hemispheres. The Anterior commissure is part of the path for pain, the Midbrain is a part of the central nervous system and the Medula deals with autonomic, involuntary functions such as breathing and heart rate. The brain Stem regulates the central nervous system, sleep cycles and cardiac and respiratory function.  The right side of brain typically controls the muscles on the left side of the body and is more dominant for processing Music and visual Imagery.
The average human brain is about 2 percent of body weight and is typically beige, pink and off-white in color.
