Clinical features of patients infected with 2019 novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China – ScienceDirect

“By Jan 2, 2020, 41 admitted hospital patients had been identified as having laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV infection. Most of the infected patients were men (30 [73%] of 41); less than half had underlying diseases (13 [32%]), including diabetes (eight [20%]), hypertension (six [15%]), and cardiovascular disease (six [15%]). Median age was 49·0 years (IQR 41·0–58·0). 27 (66%) of 41 patients had been exposed to Huanan seafood market. One family cluster was found. Common symptoms at onset of illness were fever (40 [98%] of 41 patients), cough (31 [76%]), and myalgia or fatigue (18 [44%]); less common symptoms were sputum production (11 [28%] of 39), headache (three [8%] of 38), haemoptysis (two [5%] of 39), and diarrhoea (one [3%] of 38). Dyspnoea developed in 22 (55%) of 40 patients (median time from illness onset to dyspnoea 8·0 days [IQR 5·0–13·0]). 26 (63%) of 41 patients had lymphopenia. All 41 patients had pneumonia with abnormal findings on chest CT. Complications included acute respiratory distress syndrome (12 [29%]), RNAaemia (six [15%]), acute cardiac injury (five [12%]) and secondary infection (four [10%]). 13 (32%) patients were admitted to an ICU and six (15%) died. Compared with non-ICU patients, ICU patients had higher plasma levels of IL2, IL7, IL10, GSCF, IP10, MCP1, MIP1A, and TNFα.”

Understanding oxidants and antioxidants: Classical team with new players

We talk about antioxidants a lot. Much of our longevity supplements are in fact antioxidants but, what are antioxidants and what is oxidisation and, furthermore, why do we care about it?

Antioxidant, antimicrobial and cytotoxic properties of four different extracts derived from the roots of Nicotianatabacum L. – ScienceDirect

“In the current study we demonstrate for the first time that organic extracts derived from the roots of N. tabacum possessed antioxidant, anticancer and antimicrobial properties. Our data draws attention to N. tabacum as a promising source of bioactive molecules that can be utilized in pharmaceutical industry, despite the fact that tobacco smoking is a major risk factor for lung cancer.”

Mitochondrial DNA stress signalling protects the nuclear genome – Science Mission

“Mitochondria, tiny structures present in most cells, are known for their energy-generating machinery. Now, researchers have discovered a new function of mitochondria: they set off molecular alarms when cells are exposed to stress or chemicals that can damage DNA, such as chemotherapy.”

“The VegeSafe program run by Macquarie University has been sampling backyard soil and household dust on behalf of homeowners across Sydney for several years.

They have now teamed up with researchers from seven countries across the globe to launch Map My Environment, an interactive tool allowing people to check levels of lead, arsenic and heavy metals in their suburb, based on more than 15,000 samples.” SMH Dec 1 2019

Modulation of hepatocyte sialylation drives spontaneous fatty liver disease and inflammation | Glycobiology | Oxford Academic

These findings connect hepatocyte and circulatory glycoprotein sialylation to the regulation of metabolism and inflammation, potentially identifying the glycome as a new target for liver-driven disease.

Save Aussie Supplements – call to action

Opinion – While unsafe products should be regulated, an individual should be free to research and trial compounds that may or may not yet have shown clear evidence or clinical trials for efficacy.

Medial technology and knowledge is constantly changing and we cannot be held ransom to a slow moving TGA locking up beneficial compounds simply because they’ve not yet tested or studied them.

These secret battles between your body’s cells might just save your life

These secret battles between your body’s cells might just save your life

Yasuyaki Fujita has seen first-hand what happens when cells stop being polite and start getting real. He caught a glimpse of this harsh microscopic world when he switched on a cancer-causing gene called Ras in a few kidney cells in a dish. He expected to see the cancerous cells expanding and forming the beginnings of tumours among their neighbours. Instead, the neat, orderly neighbours armed themselves with filament proteins and started “poking, poking, poking”, says Fujita, a cancer biologist at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan. “The transformed cells were eliminated from the society of normal cells,” he says, literally pushed out by the cells next door.

New method for quicker and simpler production of lipidated proteins

New method for quicker and simpler production of lipidated proteins

Decorating proteins with pharmaceuticals and other molecules for targeted delivery into the body and for keeping them active is an approach commonly used in medicine today. The method developed by Breinbauer and Becker could now be used to accurately and efficiently introduce such molecules into proteins. Breinbauer is confident that their method will soon be adopted because “the reagents we used are very easy to manufacture or can be purchased.”

Vaping is not dangerous, black market cartridges with hydrogen cyanide is though! – Opinion

Vaping is not dangerous, black market cartridges with hydrogen cyanide is though! – Opinion

While hysteria reins on news outlets and social media and some officials calling for or enacting laws to ban it, the real source of danger is the unregulated black market cartridges that contain some chemicals that turn to hydrogen cyanide when heated.

Saying vaping is dangerous is the same as saying water is dangerous. If misused or abuse anything can be dangerous.

This blog is trying to deliver the real truth without influences from politics or even laws. We want you to have the right information so you can make truly informed choices about your health.

It is estimated that vaping is 90% more safe than smoking. Most vape products contain less chemicals and less harmful chemicals. While it’s true we don’t know long term effects, it’s pretty safe to say that it’s a better way of consumption than burning and smoking material.

Declines in mental health associated with air pollution and temperature variability in China | Nature Communications

Opinion: I’ve always said that I’d rathwr do things to improve our environment and be wrong about climate change than to do the opposite. The potential risks are great but also the potential benefits to cleaning up our act could also be great. Here we have a paper showing causality between mental health decline and pollution levels.

Quantum Theory Proves That Consciousness Moves To Another Universe After Death – Conscious Reminder

I’ve personally had this theory on my spiritual self for a while now. I’ve always thought that all this energy that we generate cannot just stop, it has to change form and continue. That’s physics.

Now we have this theory presented for your consideration.
