"Harmless" laser eye surgery often lead to loss of vision

"Harmless" laser eye surgery often lead to loss of vision The solution of the question about the possibility of laser vision correction must be made individually for each patient. New patient guide, which was released by the American specialists from the Educational Council for ophthalmic surgery, will allow one to determine the risk associated with holding very popular LASIK surgery. Only in the United States annually, more than a million such operations, so that even a relatively small percentage of complications leads to thousands of victims. According to the results of recent studies, the risk of complications can reach five percent. The operation may even lead to the loss or significant reduction of vision. As stated in the new administration, the patient is extremely important to imagine how much test you should pass in order to be sure that the operation risk is minimal. Читать полностью -->

StAlien spawns "sleep paralysis""

 StAlien spawns You, the opportunity did not ever meet with little green men, trying to pull you aboard their spaceship? Do not worry, you are not alone. Thousands of people around the world claim that was face to face with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations, and to suspect each of them in banal lies, generally speaking, there is no reason. However, as British scientists believe, nothing alien in a similar experience too. As shown by a study conducted by psychologists from London Goldsmiths College, people telling about their encounters with aliens from outer space have increased susceptibility to so-called "sleeping paralysis" - a special state of consciousness between sleep and reality, from which, the person is unable to move and may experience visual and auditory hallucinations, not being able to distinguish them from reality. Often in this state, the people seem bright flashes of light and terrible creatures. Asking subsequently, the question was whether what he saw and heard them actually or they "went to the roof", many people think that it really met with aliens. Читать полностью -->

life Expectancy is associated with the time of retirement

 life Expectancy is associated with the time of retirementThe life expectancy of pensioners, retired early, much shorter. In particular, the 55-year-old retirees in later after work years died more frequently than their more able-bodied colleagues. The results of scientific observations were published in the British medical journal. For 26 years, scientists have researched 3500 employees one of the leading manufacturers of engine oil. The mortality rate among those who retired at 65 or even 60 years, was significantly lower than among workers retired at 55. Moreover, the "early" retirees often died in the first 10 years after the rest. Читать полностью -->

Consumption of olive oil reduces the risk of heart attack

Consumption of olive oil reduces the risk of heart attackConsumption of olive oil reduces the risk of heart attack According to research group of the University of Navarra (Spain), the consumption of olive oil in 74% reduces the risk of myocardial infarction. As noted by one of the project managers, Miguel angel Martinez, a long time ago it was said that "the Mediterranean diet protects people from heart disease, which is the main cause of death in Western countries. Only now, however, scientists were able to obtain concrete results regarding the beneficial effects of olive oil, which is the main element of the "Mediterranean diet". Scientists also found that the risk of heart attack is further reduced if a large part consumed by the patient of the calories comes from olive oil instead of other products. In the study participated 342, of which 171 are already survived one heart attack. Source:RBC and Madlena.Ru. Читать полностью -->

Americans have learned to accurately predict the life expectancy

Americans have learned to accurately predict the life expectancyAmericans have learned to accurately predict the life expectancy Thanks to genetic research conducted by American scientists, the elderly will be able to know the time of his life. Genetics concluded that the risk of premature death can be determined by the length of the end sections of chromosomes, reports the Agency Ananova. Researchers from the University of Utah studied the genetic material 143 people older than 60 years. The study centered on telomeres - the end regions of the chromosomes that prevent them from twisting. Telomeres contain specific DNA sequences, ensuring accurate reproduction of chromosomes. With age, the telomeres are shortened, making cells more susceptible to age-related degenerative diseases. Читать полностью -->
