Dangers and side effects of antibiotics that kills

I know some people will be wondering what is it this? to scare us? No I don’t, I just want to open our eyes to reality.

Antibiotics are drugs or substances which help and aid for the fight if bacterial infection. We also have other kinds of drug that belong to this category like the antifungal drugs for fighting fungal infection. The definition of antibiotics I just gave is what I recognized every where but, this antibiotics are some of the major reasons why we fall sick or get infections. This is most times responsible for tranforming an immunocompetent individual(strong in his or her immune system) to an immunocompromised patient(weak in immune system).


How does this happen

This is how it happens: when you take an antibiotics, the antibodies in the system recognize that this is an friend not a foe so they won’t attack the antibiotics because they are here to fight an infection. So the antibiotics and antibodies join forces together and fight the disease no doubt but in the process they also kill the Continue reading “Dangers and side effects of antibiotics that kills”

Benefits and use of Aloe vera on the human body

It’s used in traditional Indian medicine for constipation, skin diseases, worm infestation, infections and as a natural remedy for colic. In Chinese medicine, it’s often recommended in the treatment of fungal diseases, and in the Western world, it has found widespread use in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries.  In fact, the manufacturing of aloe vera extracts is one of the largest botanical industries in the world.

What Are the Aloe Vera Benefits? Aloe vera produces two substances used for medicine: The gel is obtained from the cells in the center of the leaf, and the latex is obtained from the cells just beneath the leaf skin. Most people use aloe gel as a remedy for skin conditions, including burns, sunburn, frostbite, psoriasis and cold sores, but there is a host of other aloe vera benefits. Aloe gel is used for treating osteoarthritis, bowel diseases, fever, itching and inflammation.

Aloe latex is used to naturally treat depression, constipation, asthma and diabetes.

Prion disease emerging as one of the most deadly disease in the world

Prion diseases are fatal neurodegenerative disorders that include Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD), Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker disease (GSS), fatal familial insomnia (FFI), kuru and variant CJD (vCJD) in humans  and animals. Their central feature is the post-translational conversion of host-encoded, cellular prion protein (PrPC), to an abnormal isoform, designated PrPSc. This transition appears to involve only conformational change rather than covalent modification and confers PrPSc with partial resistance to proteolytic degradation and detergent insolubility. Human prion diseases are biologically unique in that the disease process can be triggered through inherited germline mutations in the human prion protein gene (PRNP), infection (by inoculation, or in some cases by dietary exposure) with prion-infected tissue or by rare sporadic events that generate PrPSc. Substantial evidence indicates that an abnormal PrP isoform is the principal, if not the sole, component of the transmissible infectious agent, or prion. The mechanism of neurodegeneration that accompanies the accumulation of PrPSc in the brain remains unknown although there is increasing evidence that this may involve an apoptotic mechanism involving inhibition of the proteosome. The existence of multiple strains or isolates of prions has been difficult to Continue reading “Prion disease emerging as one of the most deadly disease in the world”
