July 31, 2018 A new study finds that long-term heat therapy may increase mitochondrial function in the muscles. The discovery could lead to new treatments for people with chronic illness or disease. The study, the first of its kind in humans-; is published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology. Mitochondria, the “energy […]Continue Reading ...
May 31, 2018 Cell biologists have deepened understanding of proteins associated with neurodegenerative diseases. The findings could open up new treatment approaches for disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), among others. Researchers in Japan have gained valuable insights into ‘stress granules’ — clumps of RNAs and proteins that form when […]Continue Reading ...
— Warming up is crucial a part of any exercise, and it is smartly value the additional short while. The American Center Affiliation recommends: Warming up for 5 mins to 10 mins. In case you are making plans for a protracted, intense exercise, building up heat up time. Get started warming up with the task […]Continue Reading ...
Many wearable biosensors, data transmitters and similar tech advances for personalized health monitoring have now been “creatively miniaturized,” says materials chemist Trisha Andrew at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, but they require a lot of energy, and power sources can be bulky and heavy. Now she and her Ph.D. student Linden Allison report that they […]Continue Reading ...
A newly published scientific paper indicates that occupational safety and daily day performance in 7 out of 10 workers, from several European industries, is negatively affected by a combination of heat stress and failure to maintain water balance. The study combines field observations and motor-cognitive testing in the lab, and was conducted by the Pan-European […]Continue Reading ...
After this summer’s recording-breaking heat-;118°F in Riverside, 109°F in Long Beach, 114°F in Burbank-; and massive wildfires, California residents are definitely ready for the cooler temperatures of autumn. But more than just keeping us comfortable, cool temperatures are critical to our health, says Lara Cushing, Ph.D., assistant professor of environmental epidemiology in the department of […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 15, 2018 — This year’s record-breaking worldwide heat wave is likely a preview of coming attractions, scientists say. Using a new method for predicting global temperatures, researchers concluded that 2018-2022 may be even hotter than expected. While global warming appeared to have eased early in the 21st century, the new forecasting method points […]Continue Reading ...
