We all believe that organic foods are healthy as they are produced without synthetic pesticides, and chemical fertilizers, but the fact of the matter is organic foods can be highly processed and may be high in calories, sugar and fats. Hence eating real, whole, unprocessed foods is a wise option. The multi grain bread you buy daily is made from refined white flour with a few seeds or whole grains added for texture. It is imperative that you should check the labels on the bread and it should read 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain and if the label  [...]

Deafness caused due to damage to the inner ear nerve, may now be cured by stem cell therapy. Researchers from the University of Sheffield have claimed that the hearing was partially improved with the help of stem cells. The nerve cells were replaced by the researchers that are used for hearing by the stem cells called as spiral ganglion neurons from human embryo, and which are capable of becoming any kind of cell in the human body from nerve to skin and muscle to kidney. These cells were injected in to the inner ears of 18 deaf gerbils and it was found that the capacity of the 10 deaf gerbils improved and the hearing improved. This  [...]

New Invention to Measure the Pesticide Content Present in Food and our Body
All of us are concerned about the pesticides we consume in our daily life through the food we eat, the air we breathe and we are helpless as we are not aware of the remedies for this situation. A young scientist from Imtech, has developed a biosensor chip that tells us how much pesticide is there in our cold drinks, food or even the amount that has already entered our body's blood stream. This match box sized chip weighs 200 gms and costs only Rs 5. This low cost bio chip uses a simple affinity based electrochemical technique to detect toxic materials in the environment quickly and with high degree of sensitivity. The same sensor can also be used for diabetic markers, thyroid markers, and cardiac markers. In simple terms this means that the blood test through this chip can predict if you have a risk of heart attack, thyroid or diabetes. Pesticides usage raises lots of environmental concerns, and over 98% of the sprayed pesticides reach a destination other than their targets. These organic  [...]
