The Performance Enhancing Effects of Molecular Hydrogen

molecular hydrogen

In addition to its potential application for conditions ranging from treatment-resistant psoriasis to Parkinson’s disease, [1,2] the ability of this small molecule with substantial antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potential to easily traverse cellular membranes and biological barriers make it potentially applicable as a therapy not only for nearly every human diseaseRead

Pulsed Electromagenetic Field for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer screening

Physicians from Sapienza University in Rome have published promising results of a small prospective interventional trial using noninvasive pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) to treat men suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). After one month of treatment, prostate volume and symptoms significantly decreased. Men with moderate-severe lower urinary tract symptomsRead

Teen Obesity Linked to Thrombus Later in Life

Men with a history of obesity in their late teens are, in adult life, more at risk of a blood clot (thrombus) in a leg or lung, according to a study from the University of Gothenburg study shows. This article on teen obesity shows the risk rises successively and isRead

Researchers Explore Underlying Reasons for COVID-19 Severity

PCOS

Researchers have reported a significant and positive relationship between the amount of virus present in a throat swab sample and COVID-19 severity. The higher the relative viral load in the sample, the greater the organ damage, and the longer it would take for the viral RNA count to turn negative,Read

COVID-19 Genetic Network Provides a Lineage of Pandemic Origins

COVID-19 Variants

Researchers from Cambridge, UK, and Germany have reconstructed the early “evolutionary paths” of COVID-19 in humans – as infection spread from Wuhan out to Europe and North America  – using genetic network techniques. The findings are published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The softwareRead
