Down syndrome – Chromosomal birth defect

Down syndrome – This is the most common chromosomal birth defects. This happens just after fertilization, when one extra chromosome appears in the first cell. Each healthy cell in the human body contains 46 chromosomes in 23 pairs. In Down’s syndrome, there is an anomaly in which each cell contains three 21 chromosomes, instead of two. This is why the other name of this disease is chromosome 21 trisomy (tripling). Only 4% of patients experience this so-called translocation (displacement), whereby a redundant part of the 21st chromosome attaches to another chromosome.

The outbreak of this disease is considered a genetic lottery, and scientists have yet to investigate the cause of the mutation. Children with Down syndrome have distinctive facial features – slanted eyes. A stronger build and a flat rounded face. They are also often more prone to cardiovascular disease. They are also 3-5 times more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s.

The risk factor is the age of the parents – in mothers over 35, in fathers more than 50. 92% of affected fetuses in Europe are aborted.

Valuable properties omega-3

Valuable properties omega-3 - DHA, omega-3 molecule

Valuable properties omega-3

Valuable properties omega-3 – Omega-3 fatty acid must be constantly supplied to our body with food, because it can not synthesize them itself. Omega-3 has a lot of valuable properties, including reduce the risk of heart disease and cardiovascular, diabetes or cancer. Among the many vegetable oils, omega-3 contains linseed oil which is fragile. Second place is rapeseed oil, which has 10 times more of these valuable fatty acids than olive oil.

Threat associated with stress

Threat associated with stress

Threat associated with stress – Stress arising through work or school, can lead to serious health problems. Such as cardiovascular diseases or the development of depression. Engineers from the lab ETH Zurich have developed in connection with this small device that allows you to measure stress levels. The instrument combines the measurement of skin conductance, heart rate and breathing with the measurement of stress hormones in saliva.

Cardiovascular disease risk – Higher among bald men. Up to about 1/3, compared to the other men. Tests on 37 thousand. men carried Japanese scientists. Hair loss depends on the activity of male hormones, which also accelerate hardening of the blood vessels, or the effects of atherosclerosis.

After 20 minutes, normalizes heart rate and blood pressure, increased due to smoking.

After 12 hours, decreasing the content of carbon monoxide in the blood. It is poisonous in larger quantities harms the heart and central nervous system.

After 5 days, the majority of the organism spread nicotine.

After 2 weeks, improves circulation of blood and air in the lungs.

After a period of nine weeks to cleanse the hair on the lining of the lungs. Smoker’s cough disappears.

After a year, the risk of cardiovascular disease is reduced by half.

After 15 years were smokers compared with non-smokers no longer have the increased risk of heart attack.

Normally heart muscle – Heart rate healthy adult man

Normally heart muscle – Heart healthy adult human beats per minute 60 to 80 times. Resting pulse of 60 is regarded as a guarantee of a healthy heart for many years. It protects the vessels and thus minimizes the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart. If the pulse is constantly oscillates between 81 and 90, the risk of death by. Danish studies is 2x higher, and with over 90 increases almost 3x.

Contact pesticides – Increases risk of autism

Contact pesticides – Research shows that exposure to pesticides during pregnancy increases the risk of developmental disorders in children (including autism) and cardiovascular disease later in life. These substances are also associated with obesity and diabetes. The European Commission after reviewing studies of pesticides in 1000, ordered to withdraw from the market approx. 700 of them.

Shift work – Causes negative effects

Shift work – Causes negative effects

Shift work – This is a significant burden on the body, although there are professions in which another system is simply unreal. However, shift work, especially the night, causes a negative impact on thinking and memory. The French-British research has shown, that if a person is working in the system for over 10 years, his brain can grow old at an accelerated pace, and as a result to be older than the brains of his peers by as much as 6.5 years. Working at night and various shifts increases the chances of developing gastric ulcers, cardiovascular diseases and certain types of cancer. Scientists for 10 years studied the effects of shift work on cognitive skills of employees. We found that the negative effects of shift work on cognitive skills persist for at least five years after this type of work. Type consequence is an individual matter.
