Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

September 20, 2013

Sharon asks…

How to fix aging in the theory of Aubrey de Grey?

The seven types of aging damage proposed by de Grey (The Seven Deadly Things)
Main article: Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence
Mutations – in Chromosomes causing cancer due to nuclear mutations/epimutations:
These are changes to the nuclear DNA (nDNA), the molecule that contains our genetic information, or to proteins which bind to the nDNA. Certain mutations can lead to cancer, and, according to de Grey, non-cancerous mutations and epimutations do not contribute to aging within a normal lifespan, so cancer is the only endpoint of these types of damage that must be addressed.
Mutations – in Mitochondria:
Mitochondria are components in our cells that are important for energy production. They contain their own genetic material, and mutations to their DNA can affect a cell’s ability to function properly. Indirectly, these mutations may accelerate many aspects of aging.
Junk – inside of cells, aka intracellular aggregates:
Our cells are constantly breaking down proteins and other molecules that are no longer useful or which can be harmful. Those molecules which can’t be digested simply accumulate as junk inside our cells. Atherosclerosis, macular degeneration and all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s disease) are associated with this problem.
Junk – outside of cells, aka extracellular aggregates:
Harmful junk protein can also accumulate outside of our cells. The amyloid senile plaque seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients is one example.
Cells – too few, aka cellular loss:
Some of the cells in our bodies cannot be replaced, or can only be replaced very slowly – more slowly than they die. This decrease in cell number causes the heart to become weaker with age, and it also causes Parkinson’s disease and impairs the immune system.
Cells – too many, aka Cell senescence:
This is a phenomenon where the cells are no longer able to divide, but also do not die and let others divide. They may also do other things that they’re not supposed to, like secreting proteins that could be harmful. Cell senescence has been proposed as cause or consequence of type 2 diabetes.[24] Immune senescence is also caused by this.[citation needed]
Extracellular protein crosslinks:
Cells are held together by special linking proteins. When too many cross-links form between cells in a tissue, the tissue can lose its elasticity and cause problems including arteriosclerosis and presbyopia.[13][25]

admin answers:

Aubrey de Gray, whoever he is, has a very poor understanding of biology, because most of what you’ve written here is just plain wrong. Alzheimer’s is not caused by normal accumulation of junk. Most people don’t get Alzheimer’s, and the plaques that are seen in these patients is a sign that there’s something wrong with something in their brain cells. There are no such thing as “molecules that cannot be digested” inside cells, and cells certainly do NOT just accumulate piles of these molecules inside themselves. His claim that only mutations leading to cancer are relevant is just laughably stupid. There are tons of processes that can be harmed by mutation that don’t cause cancer.

And so on, and so on.

He also completely fails to mention two of the key processes that have been proven to contribute significantly to ageing: the buildup of oxidative damage over time and the shortening of telomeres during cellular replication.

In short, it’s bullshit. Ignore it.

Donald asks…

how dose the circulatory system in the horse work?

How dose the circulatory system in the horse work. I am not really sure and i would like to know how it works . I know about the horses digestive and respitoray systems .

admin answers:

It is a closed circuit system made up of the heart and blood vessels, with backup from communication between the veins and lymphatic vessels. Lymph vessels are an open-ended system, with tissue capillaries absorbing accumulated tissue fluids leaked from blood capillaries for return to veins.

The function of the heart is to act as a pump and keep blood moving. Blood is circulated from the heart through arteries (called arterial circulation) that branch to capillaries (tiniest blood vessels) embedded within all living tissues of the body. Blood is routed back from tissue capillaries to the heart via veins (called the venous circulation). The blood vessels transport blood being circulated throughout the body to and from the heart.

Blood transports oxygen and carbon dioxide waste for delivery to and from the lungs in the red cells, and the blood plasma and lymph carries immune white cells and antibodies, clotting factors, sugars, lipids, proteins vitamins, minerals, hormones, metabolic wastes and other substances to and from the body organs, tissues and cells where they are needed to sustain cellular functions throughout the body, or where substances are absorbed (GI organs), processed (liver), or excreted (kidneys)

With each heart contraction (pulse), blood is delivered to the tissue capillaries, where needed substances are exchanged for wastes to be returned to the heart via venules and veins emptying into the vena cava (venous circulation). Wastes carried in lymph are returned to venous blood before reaching the heart.

Venous blood returned to the right side of the heart is loaded with carbon waste and oxygen is depleted. And it is immediately circulated through the lungs (pulmonary circulation).

The capillaries in lungs are embedded within the walls of the millions of tiny air sacs called alveoli. Oxygen from the air is breathed into the alveoli during inspiration, to be filtered into capillary blood, while at the same time, toxic carbon dioxide waste is filtered out of capillary blood and into the alveoli, to be breathed out with the next expiration.

So, oxygen-poor (depleted) blood enters one end of each capillary bed, then carbon dioxide waste is exchanged for oxygen within capillaries of each alveolus, and then oxygen-rich blood leaves the other end of the capillary bed to be returned to the left side of the heart. The blood is then pumped out of the left ventricle of the heart through the aorta (largest artery) to the systemic circulation to repeat the circulatory cycle.

In horses, species-specific mechanisms within the hooves function to assist return of blood and lymph to the heart. For example, horses have specialized vascular shunting mechanisms in the hooves that allow blood to be either bypassed around tissues or supplied to the same tissues in response to the environment, and in order for the tissues to withstand hours of exposure to extremes of heat or cold, as when they stand on ice and in snow for days or weeks on end without crystallization of the water in blood and lymph (frostbite).

Hooves are flexible structures designed to distort with the terrain, expand, flatten, and compress and empty blood vessels with each hoof landing, and then when the hoof is lifted it contracts to move the blood and lymph up through vessels of the limb, and allowing fresh blood to refill the emptied vessels as the hoof leaves the ground again.

Horseshoes severely impair these functions by restricting the distortion, expansion, compression, and contraction required for blood and lymph to be effectively moved through the hooves and back up through the limbs to the heart. This impaired circulation negatively affects functions of every system of the body.

It is often said that horses possess five hearts for this reason, with these mechanisms in the four hooves acting as auxiliary pumps to return blood to the heart, and the heart pumping blood out to the systemic circulation.

Mary asks…

What are some ways to boost your immune system?

I’ve ha like two colds in the past maby 5 months, an I’m really sick of it.
Any foods to help with that?
Thank you!

admin answers:

Firstly, we must get enough sleep. We need to rest our body in a leisurely manner and avoid stress for at least six to eight hours daily. Sleep disorder or insomnia reduces the quality of sleep and thus reducing the strength and functionality of our immune system.

Secondly, we must drink plenty of water. By drinking six to eight glasses of water daily, this will help to flush out toxins from our bodies. We must also steer clear of coffee, tea and carbonated drinks.

Thirdly, we must eat well. We should increase organic fresh fruits and vegetables and multi-grain meals in our daily diet and cut down on frozen, processed and fatty food. Besides that, we should reduce the intake of animal protein rich food. Quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption. Do not overeat or force yourself to eat more when you are full. You should always avoid heavy meals and drinks in your daily diet.

Fourthly, we must practice good hygiene by washing our hands after visiting the toilets and before meals. When we wash our hands, we also get rid of germs that might infect us with illnesses.

Fifth, we need to exercise to boost our immune system. Exercise is good for health. It helps to strengthen our bones and muscles, and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.

Lastly, we should control our emotions as it will affect our immune system. Person with hot-tempered character will always have relatively low immune system. Negative emotions such as angry, envy, hate, selfish, fear, stress, panic; depress, disappointed, dismay, sad, hopeless, pessimistic and etc. Are related to low immune system.

In contrary, optimistic, happy, cheerful, confidence, kind, gentle, humble, calm, tranquility, relaxing and etc. Can indirectly boost up our immune system. Practice positive thought instead of negative thought in whatever you do is another way to boost your immune system up.

To conclude, we should follow all the steps mentioned in order to boost up our immune system. By doing so, we will be less prone to infections and diseases.

**********

Scientists always research and get surprising results:) “We’re still in the horse-and-buggy era of understanding how the immune system works,” Lee Berk says, Dr.P.H., M.P.H., an assistant professor of family medicine at the University of California, Irvine, College of Medicine, “but we do have a few pieces of the puzzle.

Research shows that when you do simple, everyday activities that make you feel good, you also stay healthier. This is a case of science catching up with intuition.” Here are some of those ways.

Listen to Beethoven (or Britney)

Listening to music can boost your immunity, but it has to be music you love. “Something that calms one person might rile another,” Berk says. “The trick is finding music that soothes your soul.” Scientists at McGill University in Montreal found that listening to music that sent “shivers down the spine” or that gave people chills stimulated the same “feel-good” parts of the brain that are activated by food and sex.

Turn down the volume

Noise hurts more than your ears. Any unwanted and intrusive sound can trigger muscle tension, speed heartbeat, constrict blood vessels and cause digestive upsets – the same response your body has to being startled or stressed.

Go out and mingle

Your immune system likes it when you spend time with friends. The more social contacts the people have – and the more diverse the contacts – the less likely they are to catch the cold!!!

Look on the bright side

The immune system takes many of its cues from our thoughts and feelings, so try to keep your outlook upbeat. Years ago, Mayo Clinic researchers found that people who were optimists in their youth tended to live 12 years longer(!!!) than pessimists.

Laugh out loud

While painful emotions like anger and grief can impair health, laughter does the opposite. A real belly laugh increases infection-fighting antibodies and boosts natural killer-cell activity, says Berk, who has shown students funny videos and measured their immune systems’ response.

Use your brain

Certain kinds of thinking may boost immunity. Any mental activity that uses one or a combination of these intellectual functions might benefit immune activity.

Your Questions About For Those I Love I Will Sacrifice

September 19, 2013
By

Michael asks…

What is the difference between CRUSH and LOVE?

A friend of mine just explained it very well(Nick Karoshi) and I understood that Love isn’t with whom you can live your life with, its is with the one whom you cannot live without.
So what is your defination about these complicated feelings crush and love?

admin answers:

A crush is when you think you love a person, simply because you find them attractive.
Love is when you look beyond their physical features. You would do ANYTHING for that person and you value their life more than you value their own. You are willing to make sacrifices for them and do everything you can to help them in any way possible.

Nancy asks…

What was the biggest sacrifice you made for your true love?

Did that sacrifice come back to bite you, or did it work out?

admin answers:

Opening my heart and letting them in was a big deal and challenge for me. So far it’s been worth the risk, even though it’s still a bit scary.
True love is worth the time you have to put in. Nothing in life that’s worth having won’t come without a few bumps in the road.

Have faith that it will all work out for the two of you.

Donna asks…

Why do women tend to sacrifice there happiness?

Why do women tend to sacrifice their happiness to make their families happy by marrying gay guys they could never love or have a meaningful relationship with. They past up a chance at true happiness just because of a different race or religion for people that love them but they wont spend the rest of their lives with them. Isnt your happiness important too?

admin answers:

Women marrying gay men isn’t all that common, and the gay guy isn’t getting the best deal either…he’s got to (at least publicly) play house with someone he’s not the least bit interested in.

Thankfully, most women (and men) go for those they want to be with, not marriages of convenience.

Your Questions About For Those In Peril On The Sea

September 18, 2013
By

Lisa asks…

How could the bright lights of the hotels prevent the body turtles from reaching the baby turtles from reachin

When baby tutles hatch how could the bright lights of a hotel prevent it from reaching the sea when its hatched

admin answers:

It is in the instinct for the babies to head toward the water and the reflection of the moon shows where the water is. If hotels keep their lights on the babies get disoriented and dont know which way to go so they go towards the brighter lights thinking it is the reflection off the ocean water and end up lost and killed by vehicles and predators or get too hot and die from the heat when daylight approaches. They have no chance if they go the wrong way toward the hotel lights. It is a wonderful law and I am glad that is it strictly enforced on hotels to make sure shades are closed or lights are off during nighttime hours because sea turtles are critically in Peril

Donald asks…

What is the best way to turn dry facts from books into living knowledge?

Perils of autodidacticism: I am trying to learn about history and geography, but none of the facts seem real or connectable to the present day. When I read that a certain region of France, for example, was invade by vikings I just remember a few things about vikings- helmets, boats, and then forget the information alltogether. It’s as if historical figures never lived at all.

admin answers:

Wow, this is a great question – maybe the best I’ve seen on YA.

In general, the answer to your question is that, the more you study and think about what you’re learning, then consistently connect that with other things that you read and see and hear (in current news stories, for instance, and in your own experiences), the more you will start seeing the interconnections among and between things. It takes some time, but it will definitely happen. And when it does you’ll get that moment of A-ha! This will happen over and over, it’s a real pleasure to experience.

Keep pursuing the ideas and facts you’re interested in to be sure to enjoy the process of where your exploration takes you. Use some kind of metaphor in your mind, like the Lewis and Clark expedition. They had particular goals – to find the way to the western sea and to catalog and describe (and collect, if possible) everything they came across – but their journey blossomed into experiences and knowledge far greater than their basic goals.

There are also some great history books that have a kind of holistic methodology and viewpoint that I think can help speed this process for you.

“Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fate of Human Societies”

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0393061310/qid=1150231054/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-0026620-1964174?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

Culture Matters: How Values Shape Human Progress

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0465031765/qid=1150230971/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-0026620-1964174?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

And there are some books that show a particular type of thinking that can help an autodidact. The author of “Freakonomics” says it well: “many apparent mysteries of everyday life don’t need to be so mysterious: they could be illuminated and made even more fascinating by asking the right questions and drawing connections…” Reading some books that do this will encourage you in thinking the same way.

“Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything”

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/006089637X/qid=1150231119/sr=12-1/102-0026620-1964174?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

And Malcolm Gladwell explains that we can make better instant judgments by training our mind and senses to focus on the most relevant facts. And gives examples of how less input (for a trained mind and as long as it’s the right input) is better than more.

“Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking”

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0316010669/qid=1150231188/sr=12-2/102-0026620-1964174?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

And finally, Gore Vidal is an absolute master of connecting the dots of historical facts and present-day politics, economics, sociology, et al. He’s a joy to read. A good place to start with him is his book, “United States”
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0767908066/qid=1150230425/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/102-0026620-1964174?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

Do you feel that young people with mental health problems are not always taken seriously?

do you feel that young people with mental health problems are not always taken seriously ?

admin answers:

Yes and most of us understand that, teenagers are very emotional (mainly due to hormones). But still, children and teenagers can develop mental illness and every person with a mental illness should be regarded as serious because mental illness can take your life.

I myself have two anxiety disorders, and I am currently being evaluated for a dissociative disorder and a depression-spectrum disorder in the manic depression field. I have struggled with borderline to mild anorexia, self-injury, a variety of types of parental abuse, suicidal behavior, and I have even attempted to take my own life. But you know, nothing serious….

Your Questions About For Those About To Rock

September 16, 2013
By

Robert asks…

Do you think that rock has been becoming of lesser quality over time?

I got in an a
rgument with a friend of mine and he told me that rock was getting worse over time because of the new “genres of rock
“. i considered that he was a bit paranoid….but whatcha think?

admin answers:

Personally, i think that it’s become a saturated industry. “Rock music” has become an image that people buy into, it’s moving towards being about money over music. There are too many shit bands these days, that it seems so much harder to find the bands that are still playing good music. Bands are getting too much exposure before they even prove they have anything of substance.

Plus too many bands are just bellends. Especially the “metal” bands that pretend they are like, some ancient warriors or shit with all their make-up and false armour or whatever. It’s just bullshit, and they don’t even play good music.

I think counter-culture bands are the only way of fixing the industry, the ones that aren’t out for fame, money etc..

—————————————

In response to seller’s comment.

Music isn’t about facts and figures, it’s ALL opinion, and the most generally accepted opinion among many is taken as fact and then perpetuates through more exposure.

And tbh I cba to argue, I like a lot of modern music (suprisingly) only, the superficiality in an increasing amount of people is my main issue with the entire spectrum of music.

Michael asks…
