The method of the poor to cure a stroke whatever its form.

 Here's how to treat a rebel attack without waiting for the 3 or 6 hours when without care we are good for the grave .... Read and remember and share.

  HOW TO SAVE A PERSON FROM THE STROKE BY USING ONLY ONE NEEDLE



The unconventional method of saving human life during a stroke is a method of a Chinese teacher who says that you should always keep a needle in your home.
Share this review, so that you help someone to survive. Take the time to read this. You never know if someone's life can count on you.
When someone suffers a stroke, the capillaries of the brain stretch progressively. You need a rest and an ambulance. These tips will help you save someone's life!
 
 
Stay calm! No matter where the victim is, do not move them, because if you move the patient, the capillaries will explode and there will be bleeding in the brain! It would be better if you have a syringe needle at home, but a simple sewing needle can serve, too.

1. Hold the needle - on the fire, or with a candle, sterilize this needle and then use it to prick the tops of all 10 fingers.

2. No specific acupuncture is necessary; it should only be a few millimeters from the nail.

3. Perform so that blood can flow.

4. If blood does not drip, tighten and start squeezing.

5. When all 10 fingers begin to bleed wait a few minutes - you will see that the victim will be back to life!

6. If the victim's mouth is deformed, massage his ears until they become red - so that the blood can come to them.

1.1m Nigerians are on HIV/AIDS treatment– NACA




The Director-General, National Agency for the Control of AIDS, Dr Sani Aliyu, says a total of 1.1 million Nigerians are currently on treatment for AIDS/HIV.

Aliyu disclosed this last Thursday in Abeokuta while fielding questions from journalists during a visit to the Ogun State Ministry of Health to assess the Nigeria AIDS Indicator and Impact Survey, ongoing in the state.

He said the NAIIS was being carried out in all the 36 states of the federation to get the accurate number of people suffering from the dreaded disease.

Noting that 17,000 people are on treatment for the HIV/AIDS in Ogun State, Aliyu said that after the survey NACA would have a clearer picture of people infected by the virus in the state.

He said the survey, which had covered 20 local government areas with 112 enumerated areas, had recorded 90 per cent success.

The NACA boss stressed, “Currently, there are 1.1 million Nigerians on treatment for HIV/AIDS, Ogun State provides 17, 000 of that number.After the survey, we will get the accurate figure of people infected by HIV. We are making progress, the only challenge we are experiencing is in the area of funding.”

Aliyu commended the state government for its commitment to making the programme successful, just as he thanked the Alake of Egbaland, in a separate visit, for contributing to the success of the exercise.

In his remarks, Oba Gbadebo commended NACA for its commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS, as he urged his subjects not to discriminate against persons living with the disease.“People should know that it is no longer a death sentence when they say you have HIV/AIDS unlike what t used to be. We pray for the success of the exercise.”

American, Japanese win Nobel prize in medicine



Two immunologists, James Allison of the US and Tasuku Honjo of Japan, won the 2018 Nobel Medicine Prize for research into how the body’s natural defences can fight cancer, the jury said on Monday.

Unlike more traditional forms of cancer treatment that directly target cancer cells, Allison and Honjo figured out how to help the patient’s own immune system tackle the cancer more quickly.

The award-winning discovery led to treatments targeting proteins made by some immune system cells that act as a “brake” on the body’s natural defences killing cancer cells.

The Nobel Assembly said after announcing the prize in Stockholm that the therapy “has now revolutionised cancer treatment and has fundamentally changed the way we view how cancer can be managed”.

In 1995, Allison was one of two scientists to identify the CTLA-4 molecule as an inhibitory receptor on T-cells.

T-cells are a type of white blood cell that play a central role in the body’s natural immunity to disease.

Allison, 70, “realised the potential of releasing the brake and thereby unleashing our immune cells to attack tumours,” the Nobel jury said.

Around the same time, Honjo discovered a protein on immune cells, the ligand PD-1, and eventually realised that it also worked a brake, but acted in a different way.

clip Medical uses of Marijuana
September 12, 2018, 04:24:07 AM by Isaac Adeniran
Below is what Sowore my aspirant actually meant. He is looking at the medical aspect of it and exporting as another form of growing the countries GDP.



Medical uses of Marijuana

From 1850s to 1930s cannabis started to grow famous for recreational purposes. As the intake of this drug increased over time, The Controlled Substances Act of 1970 classified it as a Scheduled 1 Drug. So naturally controversies aroused surrounding the medical use of marijuana.

To make it more medical-friendly, its active ingredient THC was synthesized in 1966, and finally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1985.

A 1999 a U.S. Government sponsored study by the Institute of Medicine uncovered the beneficial properties of marijuana in certain medical conditions such as nausea caused by chemotherapy, and wasting caused by AIDS. Since 1999, a number of studies have been done to show that smoked marijuana has pain reducing effects.

In 1996, California became the first state to legalize the use of marijuana for medical objectives, and about 24 of the states now have some sort of medical marijuana legislation.

Medical benefits of marijuana

You will be surprised to know why studies have been done on this herb, and for your favor, here is the list of 20 medical benefits of marijuana you probably never knew!

1. Slow and stop cancer cells from spreading

It was found in the study, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, that Cannabidiol has the ability to stop cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1.

 In 2007, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, reported that CBD may prevent cancer from spreading. The researchers experimented on breast cancer cells in the lab that had high level of Id-1, and treated them with cannabidiol.

The outcome was rather positive, the cells had decreased Id-1 expression, and were less aggressive spreaders. In fact, the American Association for Cancer Research has found that marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in brain, breast, and lungs considerately.

2. Prevent Alzheimer’s

THC, the active ingredient present in marijuana slows the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, a 2006 study led by Kim Janda of the Scripps Research Institute found out. THC slows the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that makes them. These plaques kill the brain cells, and potentially lead to Alzheimer’s disease.

3. Treat Glaucoma

Marijuana can be used to treat glaucoma, which increases the pressure in the eyeball, injuring the optic nerve and causing loss of vision. According to National Eye Institute, marijuana lowers the pressure inside the eye,

“Studies in the early 1970s showed that marijuana, when smoked, lowered intraocular pressure (IOP) in people with normal pressure and those with glaucoma.”

These effects of the drug can prevent blindness.

4. Relieve Arthritis

In 2011, researchers reported that cannabis reduces pain and inflammation, and promotes sleep, which may help relieve pain and discomfort for people with rheumatoid arthritis.

Researchers of the rheumatology units at several hospitals gave their patients Sativex, a cannabinoid-based pain-relieving medicine. After two weeks, patients on Sativex had a significant reduction in pain, and improved better sleep quality compared to placebo users.

5. Control Epileptic seizure

A 2003 study showed that marijuana use can control epileptic seizure.

Robert J. DeLorenzo, of Virginia Commonwealth University, gave marijuana extract and synthetic marijuana to epileptic rats. The drugs stopped the seizures in about 10 hours.

It is found out that the THC controlled the seizures by binding the brain cells responsible for controlling excitability and regulating relaxation. The results were published in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.

6. Ease the pain of multiple sclerosis

Marijuana works to stop the negative neurological effects and muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis. A study published in the Canadian Medical Association suggests that marijuana may ease painful symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

Jody Cory Bloom studied 30 multiple sclerosis patients with painful contractions in their muscles. These patients didn’t respond to other medications, but after smoking marijuana for few days, they reported that they were in less pain. The THC in the pot bonds the receptors in the nerves and and muscles to relieve pain.

PUBLIC NOTICE!!!

Nollywood Misrepresentation of Nigerian Nurses



NOLLYWOOD ARTISTS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC SHOULD HENCEFORTH TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:

1. Professional nurses are being misrepresented by Nigerian artists and film makers.

2. Not all in white uniforms are professionally registered nurses. What is shown as nurse’s activities in the video films, soap operas and stage plays does not represent Nigerian nurses but the activities of quacks in the cottage hospitals they might have had contact with.

3, Nurses have no time to engage in mere gossips but we brainstorm with ourselves and other professionals to proffer solution to patient’s problems. If you don’t believe go to LUTH, UCH, LASUTH, UBTH and other reputable health institutions to catch a glimpse of how busy nurses really are.

4. Nurses don’t sleep around with doctors because we both have different and busy schedules of duty which overwhelms us beyond mere bodily passion. There are laid down professional ethics and principles guiding moral and professional aspects of our profession.

5. Professional Nurses don’t sit by the canter or desk, because we are not receptionists. We are ward managers that coordinates all the activities on the ward, especially issues concerning the patient's welfare. We are patients advocate, the angel on the wards and units.

Death will be 'optional' and ageing 'curable' by 2045, say genetic engineers



Death will be 'optional' and ageing 'curable' by 2045, say genetic engineers


DYING will be 'optional' within just 27 years and the ageing process will be 'reversible', according to two genetic engineers during the presentation of their new book in Barcelona.

José Luis Cordeiro, born in Venezuela to Spanish parents, and Cambridge (UK) mathematician David Wood, founders of the operating system 'Symbian', have just published  *The Death of Death'* and say immortality is a real and scientific possibility that could come much earlier than originally thought.

Humans will only die in accidents, never of natural causes or illness, by around the year 2045, say Cordeiro and Wood, who say it is 'crucial' that old age starts to be classified as an 'illness' so that publicly-funded research into its 'cure' can extend.

Nanotechnology is key, among other new genetic manipulation techniques, the engineers said during the presentation at Barcelona's Equestrian Circle.

The process will involve turning 'bad' genes into healthy ones, eliminating dead cells from the body, repairing damaged cells, treatments with stem cells and 'printing' vital organs in 3D.

Cordeiro, who is based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA, says he has 'chosen not to die' and that in 30 years' time, he will be 'younger than he is today'.

Ageing is the result of DNA 'tails', known as 'telomeres', in chromosomes – of which every cell except red blood and sex cells has 23 pairs – becoming shorter, and reversing ageing involves lengthening the telomeres.

Telomeres become damaged and shortened with the passage of time, a process that speeds up in the event of toxins entering the body – smoking, alcohol and air pollution are among elements that reduce the length of telomeres, thus accelerating ageing.

Cordeiro and Wood believe that within 10 years, illnesses such as cancer will be curable, and that major international corporations such as Google will be 'entering the field of medicine' because they are 'beginning to realise that curing ageing is possible'.

Death will be 'optional' and ageing 'curable' by 2045

CAUSES OF KIDNEY DISEASES. BEWARE AND BEWARNED!

People  are increasingly dying as a result of kidney disease.

HOW TO AVERT THE MENACE OF KIDNEY DISEASE:



*1. Stop delaying going to a toilet.*

Keeping your urine in your bladder for too long is a bad idea. A full bladder can cause bladder damage.

The urine that stays in the bladder multiplies bacteria quickly. Once the urine refluxes back to the urether and kidneys, toxic substances can result in kidney infections, then urinary tract infections, and nephritis, plus uremia.
When nature calls do it as soon as possible.

*2. Eating too much salt.*

You should eat not more than 5.8 grams of salt daily.

*3. Eating too much meat.*

Too much protein in your diet is harmful for your kidneys.

Protein digestion produces ammonia – a toxin that is very destructive to your kidneys. More meat equals more kidney damage.

*4. Drinking too much caffeine.*

Caffeine is a component of many sodas and soft drinks. It raises your blood pressure and your kidneys start suffering.

You should cut down the amount of Coke, Pepsi, Red Bull, etc that you drink daily.

*5. Not drinking water.*

Our kidneys should be hydrated properly to perform their functions well.

If we don’t drink enough, the toxins can start accumulating in the blood, as there isn’t enough fluid to drain them through kidneys.

***Drink more than 10 glasses of water daily. There is an easy way to check if you are drinking enough water: Look at the colour of your urine; the lighter the colour, the better.

*6. Late treatment.*

Treat all your health problems properly and have your health checked regularly.

Beloved and my dear, let's help ourselves...

Lime vs Lemon



A lemon is a fruit of a small evergreen lemon tree (Citrus limon) that is native to Asia. In comparison, lime is actually a hybridized citrus fruit and comes in many different varieties around the world. However, both lime and lemon are from the same citrus family. The shape of a lemon is ellipsoidal, and the ripened fruit is bright yellow in color.  On the other hand, lime is typically round and green and are slightly smaller than most lemons.


Note: Although some people may think that limes are simply lemons that haven’t ripened yet, they are sorely mistaken. Lemons are not ripe limes!

Lime vs Lemon Nutrition
Neither lime nor lemon has a rich source of vitamins and minerals but both are low in calories and are an abundant source of vitamin C.

Vitamin C
Lime: 100 g of lime contains 29 mg of vitamin C, which is 35% of the daily requirement.
Lemon: 100 g of lemon contains 53 mg of vitamin C, which is 64% of the daily requirement.

pH Scale
Lime: The pH range of lime is 2.00 to 2.35.
Lemon: The pH range of lemon is 2.00 to 2.60. This makes lemon slightly less acidic than lime.
Other nutrients
Lime: It is slightly higher in carbohydrates and lower in protein than lemon, but the difference is negligible.

Lemon: It is high in citric acid as well as phytochemicals, tannins, and polyphenolic compounds.
Lime vs Lemon Taste
Lemon typically has more sugar, which often gives it a sweeter flavor than lime, whereas lime is sour or tart, making it ideal for cocktails and beverages. Eating pure lemon juice or lime juice can be equally unpleasant experiences, which is why they are usually mixed with other drinks or ingredients before being consumed.

While the two fruits clearly have a number of differences, in size, color, nutritional value, and species, the two citrus fruits do have a great deal in common as well.


Health Benefits of Lime & Lemon
These two fruit varieties share many of the same health benefits, as outlined below, making them some of the most popular and important citrus fruits you can add to your diet.

Boost Immunity
Lime and lemon rich in vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, help strengthen the immune system. This critical vitamin stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are the first line of defense for the body when it is attacked by an illness or infection. [3]

Speed up Healing
Vitamin C plays a critical role in the production of collagen. Collagen is required for growth and development of muscles, skin cells, tissue, and bones throughout the body. Without the vitamin C of lemons and limes, the recovery rate of illnesses and injuries would be much slower.


Optimize Digestion
Lemons and limes both contain high levels of dietary fiber. This can easily bulk up the stool, reduce constipation, and eliminate excess gas and bloat. With about 3 g of fiber in each fruit, it represents about 10% of the daily recommended amount of fiber. [4]

Boost Circulation
Both of these citrus fruits contain significant levels of iron, which is an important element in hemoglobin. Without proper iron levels, people may suffer from anemia, characterized by weakness, fatigue, cognitive confusion, and light-headedness. [5]

Prevent Cancer
Citrus fruits like lemons and limes contain high levels of other antioxidants, besides vitamin C, which can counteract the effects of free radicals. [6] Thereby, lowering oxidative stress and reducing the risk of chronic diseases, such as cancer.

Weight Loss
The high fiber level and low-calorie count make these citrus fruits ideal for weight-loss. These fruits increase satiety without alleviating your calorie count. This, in turn, helps prevent overeating and snacking between meals, which makes it perfect for someone trying to shed some pounds!

How to use lime and lemon?
For those who are passionate about designing and decorating drinks (cocktails and mocktails), should be well aware of the citric acid content in limes and lemons.

Both lime and lemon with a particular beverage produce different drinks with unique flavors.
For example, lemon juice with vodka results in lemon drop, while lime juice with vodka forms gimlet.

Additionally, lemons due to their tart, refreshing flavor find its applications in various culinary uses more than limes.

Other uses: Lemons are also used for cleaning products and as an element in natural healing, whereas, limes are used in perfumes and aromatherapy.

Lime or Lemon – Which one is Better?
Lemons have a slight edge in terms of nutrients, taste, and versatility in cooking and beverages.

Limes do have a higher concentration of vitamin C and other antioxidants. They can also be used in many ways in cooking and cocktail-making.
However, while both of these fruits are very good for overall health, lemons would likely win the nutritional battle!
