Broccoli can reduce premature ageing in kids: Research

18 Dec 2014

London:  A substance found in broccoli can reduce disease-related defects in children who suffer from Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS).The HGPS is said to be responsible for premature ageing in children, mainly due to a defective protein in their cells.Scientists at Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM) University in Germany have identified the system responsible for removing cellular debris and for breaking down defective proteins. They also succeeded in reactivating protein breakdown in HGPS cells and reducing disease-related defects with the help of a substance found in broccoli.

Alcohol-induced blackouts not a joke: Research

17 Dec 2014

New York: Some people think that alcohol-related blackouts, bad hangovers and outrageous behaviour at parties are funny. It is actually not. According to new research, blackouts are likely to occur when the drinker is vulnerable to a range of additional dangerous consequences. Blackouts occur when a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is likely significantly above what is considered "legal intoxication".The higher one's alcohol levels are, the greater the chance of a blackout.
