1. Stage zero breast cancer
Doctors call two different kinds of growth in breast tissue "Stage 0" breast cancer. Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) is a benign tumor consisting of abnormal cells lining the small "lobules" where milk is made in the breast. LCIS does not behave like cancer, and there's no evidence LCIS will spread. Having LCIS does mean, however, that a woman has an increased risk of developing breast cancer. Doctors usually say no treatment is necessary for LCIS, and surgery is not usually recommended.
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is also called "Stage 0" breast cancer. This is a non-invasive, malignant tumor in cells lining one of the small ducts that carry milk to the nipple. Although DCIS has not spread beyond the duct, it can progress and become invasive. Doctors usually say treatment is necessary for DCIS. This can include surgery, radiation, and hormonal therapy.
2. Is Your Heart On Fire?
Acid Leak Risk preventing and treating heart bum might lower your risk of heart disease, according to experts at Poland's medical University of Bialystok. Heartbum happens when stomach acid creeps up into your esophagus. The acid can imitate nerves leading to your heart and diminish blood flow, which could cause chest pain or even trigger a heart attack in people with heart disease.
But when patients in a recent Polish study took 20 milligrams of and-acid blocking drug twice a day, the imitation stopped. To avoid heartbum, don't eat right before bedtime, try to have several small meals throughout the day rather than bingeing and don't smoke.
3. Languages in the Womb
Before birth, babies not only learn to recognize their mother's voice, but they may also lay the foundation for learning language. In a study, researchers played a 2-minute recording of a popular Chinese poem to 60 pregnant women an their unborn babies while monitoring fetal heart rates.
Heart rates rose while the babies listened to their own mother's voice, but they fell- and stayed lower-while the stranger recited. Obviously, the babies were paying close attention, leading the researchers to suspect they're not only recognizing mom, but beginning to learn the ins and outs of languages.
4. Chill Out, Ease Diabetes
Learning to melt your stress away may coax blood sugar down to healthy levels, suggests research from the Medical University of Ohio. The experiment followed 30 diabetics, half of whom practiced daily tension-taming exercises, such as muscle relaxation, and had their techniques monitored with weekly 45 minutes biofeedback sessions. The others look diabetes education classes. After 10 weeks, those who relaxed saw about a 10 % drop in fasting blood sugar and in the level of HbA1c- a sigh that their glucose had stayed lower around the clock for the previous couple of months. Such results mean lower risk of diabetic complication, like heart diseases, blindness, and never damaged. meanwhile, the education group's blood sugar and HbA1c levels actually rose slightly.
Stress triggers hormones that raise blood sugar," explains lead researcher Roland McGinnis, MD ,"Reducing chronic stress switches this process off." It that's not motivation enough, the relaxation group also experienced a drop in depression and anxiety.
5. Oil's Not Well
Being exposed to mineral oils, such as motor oil, hydraulic oil and asphalt, may be linked to the development or rheumatoid arthritics (RA). In a Study of 3000 people, men who reported high exposure to mineral oils, such as auto mechanic, had a 30 percent higher risk of RA than men without exposures.
