What can gorillas teach us?
All the gorillas were dying… Over 50 years of trying to breed gorillas in zoos and nothing was working. It didn’t matter where they tried — San Diego, Cincinnati, St. Louis — not even the best zoos in the country could get these gorillas to reproduce. They were facing extinction. And everyone simply accepted that it was impossible to breed gorillas in zoos. That was until one caretaker took a closer look at what the gorillas were eating. For decades, zoos fed the gorillas what they called gorilla biscuits. But, on top of being unable to reproduce, the gorillas were developing diseases like heart di...

Diabetes is not genetic
She was a beautiful woman. A patient who was easy for me to relate to. When she started to weep, I understood. I’ve heard stories like hers hundreds of times since the beginning of my career, back in Lake Worth in 1992. Let me tell you why I think this is important for you. She said, “My doctor told me I have diabetes, and it’s incurable.” So I told her, you’re not broken. There is no gene for type 2 diabetes. The things we’ve been telling people about diabetes being genetic is just dead wrong. Research has shown that genetic predispositions for most chronic diseases explain very little ...

These foods fight deadly lung disease
Your lungs are under constant assault. That’s why COPD is the third leading cause of death according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 15 million Americans have it.

WPI Scientists Developing Patch For Diseased Hearts Using Spinach Leaves
WORCESTER(CBS) – Biomedical engineers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute are working on a patch for diseased hearts that uses spinach leaves. When mixed with human stem cells, the veins in spinach could become heart muscle that pumps blood when the original organ is infected or damaged. “And so we haven’t actually put blood in there we put dye in there and we put small particles that represent blood cells and those flow right through the leaves,” said biomedical engineering professor Glenn Gaudette. During the process, the green of the spinach is removed, leaving just the cellulose structure. Spinac...

Five-a-day of fruit and veg is good, but '10 is better'
Conclusion This research supports the idea that the more fruit and veg you eat the better – at least, up to 10 portions (800g) a day. It also suggests the number of people who die early might be reduced if they were to eat more than the current recommended guideline daily amount. However, before we take this at face value, there are some important considerations: There are likely to be many confounding factors that may have affected the results. It might be that people who eat a lot of fruit and veg are also more likely to be physically active, consume less alcohol, not smoke and be a healthy weight...
