Stem Cell Science May Help You Live Longer
Feb 18th, 2015 by admin

Stem cell treatments and therapies have been some of the most important scientific breakthroughs in modern times. In fact, many scientists have observed that they may represent the next medical revolution. What is perhaps even more interesting is that due to changes in both technology and legislation, this sector is now being privatised.

Companies are making fascinating breakthroughs each and every year. How is it thought that stem cells can help prolong our lives?

Cancer Treatment Alternatives

There are certain cancers which corrupt the bone marrow and can easily spread throughout the body. In the past, the ultimate prognosis was poor. Stem cells can now be placed within this same marrow, specialise and replicate. This could be a potential cure for several diseases in the future.

Anti-Aging Properties

The public has taken a great deal of interest in the anti-aging benefits that stem cells seem to promise. As we age, cellular division slows down and the genetic material within these cells can mutate (leading to illness, disease and eventually death). With the use of stem cells, this process can be slowed down (and some claim even halted entirely). There are even serums that can be injected into the skin. As these become more efficient, we may begin to see ways to stay younger looking for longer. This is a welcome alternative to invasive surgery, chemicals and similar invasive treatments. Is this the veritable fountain of youth? Time will tell.

It should be stressed that many of the predictions that have been made will take a good amount of time to enter into public use. There is a significant amount of testing that needs to take place in order to determine the safety and efficacy of such options. Still, the future looks bright for this medical sector and in the not-so-distant future, what seems like science fiction could quickly become science fact.

3 Popular New Diets for 2015
Feb 13th, 2015 by admin

Are you trying to drop a dress size? Build bigger biceps? Lose body fat? If so, you’re not the only one. It’s estimated that millions of us embark on a new dietary program at the beginning of the year, although most of us fall short and revert to old eating habits within just a few weeks. However, there are a number of popular new diets for 2015 that can really help you achieve the results you want. Here are a few of them…

1. Volumetrics

This diet has recently gained popularity in the United States, and places an emphasis on ‘structured dieting’, rather than calorie restriction. Devised by the nutritionist Barbara Rolls, Volumetrics is all about teaching people to make the right food choices based on their energy density, and how to replace high density foods with lower density choices. If this all sounds a bit complicated, it’s really not. In fact, you could change your body composition within just a few months after embarking on the program. Volumetrics teaches the importance of consuming larger portions of foods that are considered low density such as legumes, fruits, and vegetables, while restricting higher density foods like bread and salad dressing.

2. The Biggest Loser

The Biggest Loser is a six week crash course on how to lose fat – fast. Those who have adhered to the diet have seen significant changes in fat loss, and have also incorporated healthier foods and training into their life. The diet also teaches you how making the right food choices can prevent life threatening illness in the future, such as diabetes and heart disease. Known for its weight loss potential, the diet focuses on how to restrict calories, and how to exercise more effectively.

3. Flexitarian

A Flexitarian diet is one that consists of mainly plant-based foods, but meat can also be incorporated on occasions. This diet expands on this principle, and focuses on how to limit the amount of calories you consume on a daily basis by making the right food choices. The meal plan in the Flexitarian diet sets a limit of 300 calories for breakfast, 400 calories for lunch, and 500 calories for your evening meal. This 1,500 calorie-a-day diet can therefore speed up weight loss.
