Alcohols Effect on Unborn Babies


Most people know that drinking alcohol while pregnant is extremely harmful to the baby. However, do you know exactly what alcohol can do to your child? Well truth is, many people don’t and even though most women try to avoid alcohol when they become pregnant, some will consume alcohol before they are aware they have become pregnant.

Alcohol consumption during pregnancy is the leading cause of preventable birth defects and developmental difficulties in children. Some growth deficits include: mental retardation, heart, lung, and kidney defects, specific facial characteristics, hyperactivity and behavior problems, attention and memory problems, and learning disabilities.

The most horrific part about all the defects is, if they are caused by alcohol, they can be totally avoided. Many people need to really be aware of what they could possibly be doing. Now I’m not saying don’t ever drink alcohol, but if you are trying to become pregnant, might have accidentally become pregnant, or are in the prime child bearing years pay attention.

For anyone that doesn’t believe that alcohol causes horrible birth defects, go read a book. Seriously, you might learn something. Alcohol isn’t a horrible thing, but if used without any sort of thought horrible things may happen.

Scientists Delete Obesity Gene

Researchers have discovered that weight gain in mice is caused by a gene that can be literally “switched-off”. When the gene is deleted, the mice stay slim even if they have fatty diets. The gene is called IKKE and when it is deactivated the mice do not experience weight gain – even when being fed a lard based meal.

The study, put out in the September 4th issue of the journal Cell, describes that several mice ate high fat diets, while others ate low fat diets for 3-4 months. It was found that the mice without the IKKE gene on the high fat diets stayed slim. Researchers believe that removing the IKKE gene speeds up the metabolism of mice allowing them to burn more calories. The gene produces an enzyme that activates other proteins and controls and regulates metabolism.

“The knockout[IKKE geneless] mice are not exercising any more than the control mice used in the study.” Study author Alan Saltiel Director of the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute said in a press release. “They’re just burning more energy, and in the process, they’re generating a little heat as well – their body temperature actually increases a bit.”

“We’ve studied other genes associated with obesity – we call them ‘obeseogenes'” Saltiel said “But this is the first one we’ve found that when deleted, stops the animal from gaining weight.”

More researched is required in order to determine if the IKKE gene is connected to weight gain in humans, however there is potential. One day we may develop an anti-obesity drug.

What Will You Die From and When?


Ever wanted to know when you were going to die so you could have a chance to say your final good bye’s? Well maybe we’re getting one step closer. A new calculation machine has been developed to tell you what your chance of dying is, what age you’ll die, and what you are most likely to die from.

This new calculator of death is found on http://www.deathriskrankings.com and to be completely honest, it is a lot of fun to play around with it. You have a few options to choose from, such as your age group, race, location, gender, etc.

The device was designed by many specialists that hold Ph.D.’s in things like economics, engineering, environmental safety, health safety, software application and design, risk analysis, etc. The team that built the death risk ranking system is definitely a group of very qualified people that have devoted a life time worth of work and research and now get another way to demonstrate their abilities.

Overall, the calculator is a fun new tool to show us just how easily and how likely it is for one of us to just be taken from the living, with relative ease I might add. If the accidents don’t get you then heart disease, or a homicide probably will. At least that is my outlook. Not too bright, but I’ll try and stay away from oncoming traffic, McDonald’s, and dark alleyways. I think that sounds like a pretty good idea, guess I’ll have to wait and see how well it works.
