At-Home Anemia Test (60 seconds)

Anemia is usually defined as a decrease in the total amount of red blood cells (RBCs) or hemoglobin in the blood.

It can also be defined as a lowered ability of the blood to carry oxygen. Iron-deficiency anemia, also spelled iron-deficiency anaemia, is anemia caused by a lack of iron.

Accurate Diagnosis Within 60 Seconds, At Low Cost

When anemia comes on slowly, the symptoms are often vague and may include feeling tired, weakness, shortness of breath or a poor ability to exercise. Anemia that comes on quickly often has greater symptoms, which may include confusion, feeling like one is going to pass out, loss of consciousness, or increased thirst. Anemia must be significant before a person becomes noticeably pale. Additional symptoms may occur depending on the underlying cause.

At-Home Anemia Test Produces Accurate Diagnosis Within 60 Seconds, At Low Cost.

A device that uses a single drop of blood can quickly diagnose anemia and allow inexpensive at-home monitoring.

“Our goal is to get this device into patients’ hands so they can diagnose and monitor anemia themselves,” said Dr. Wilbur Lam, a physician and professor in the department of pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine, in a statement.

The basic test produces results in about 60 seconds and requires no electrical power. Because of its simplicity and ability to deliver results without electricity, the device could also be used in resource-poor nations. A companion smartphone application can automatically correlate the visual results to specific blood hemoglobin levels.

The disposable self-testing device uses a chemical reagent that produces visible color changes corresponding to different levels of anemia.

As for the new diagnostic device, researchers concede they still need to earn FDA approval before the product can reach consumers. Lam and several of his colleagues have teamed up to launch a startup, called Sanguina, to commercialize the test under the brand name AnemoCheck. They anticipate the product reaching shelves by 2016.

Turmeric: a Natural Antidepressant more effective than Prozac

According to a recent clinical study published in the journal “Phytotherapy Research”, it has been proven that this spice offers incredible health benefits. We already knew that turmeric had anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties, but we had not yet been able to demonstrate its effects on the mind and behavior.

This research proved that this root is much more effective in treating depression than the drug “Prozac”. Turmeric is a Natural antidepressant.

Apparently, the main compound of turmeric, curcumin, would be as effective as Prozac and with no side effects. In comparison, if you are taking Prozac, here are some of the side effects you may have: anxiety, decreased sexual drive, stomach upset, diarrhea, dizziness, weakness, tiredness, headaches, reduced appetite , Drowsiness, increased sweating, etc.

Jon Brower Minnoch The fattest 6,35 tons-man in Human History

Jon Brower Minnoch (born September 29, 1941 in Bainbridge Island, died September 10, 1983) is an American who holds the record of the man who has lost the most weight in the world.

At the age of 12 he was already weighing 132 kilograms. And at the age of 22 (September 1976), he measured 1.85 meters for 178 kilograms.

Suffering from respiratory and cardiac disorders, Minnoch was admitted to the Seattle University Hospital (Washington). According to the calculations of Dr. Robert Schwartz, an endocrinologist, he weighed more than 635 kg, a weight largely due to water retention. After following a diet limited to 1,200 calories a day for almost 2 years, Minnoch went down to 216 kg. By October 1981 he had regained more 90 kg and was again hospitalized.

The transport of the most obese man of all time was extremely difficult. He needed a dozen firefighters and emergency personnel, a specially modified stretcher for him, and a ferry to take him to the Seattle hospital. There, he was placed on 2 beds joinded together, and 13 people were chrged to change the linen (because he had to roll it on the bed).

The heaviest man in history left the hospital after 16 months of restrictive diet of 1,200 calories a day. He weighed 216 kilograms (he lost between 5 and 7 kilograms of superfluous extracellular fluid per week). He had lost 419 kilograms and became the world’s thinnest man at the same time (record validated by the Guinness Book of Records).

With his condition of edema still incurable and difficult to treat continuously, he died 23 months later, on September 10, 1983 at the age of 42 (he weighed 362 kilograms and had a body mass index of 105, 3). This is the most significant difference in weight within a married couple.

John had two children behind him, fruits of his union with his wife Jeannette, who weighed 50 kilograms.
