Malignant cells are develop in the mesothelium, mesothelium is the protective thin lining that covers almost all of the body’s internal organ.

What is DiabetesMellitus?

Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disease characterized by increase levels of glucose in the blood, termed as (hyperglycemia) which means “hyper” (elevated) “glyco” or “glucose” (sugar) and “emia” (blood) elevated sugar in the blood. It results from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both. Normally a certain amount of sugar circulates in the blood, around 70-120 mg/dl. The major sources of this glucose are absorption of ingested food in the gastrointestinal tract and formation glucose by the liver from the food substances termed as (gluconeogenesis) “gluco” (sugar) “neo” (new) and “genesis” (formation).
Insulin a hormone produced by the pancreas, controls the level of glucose in the blood by regulating the production and storage of glucose. In the diabetic condition the cells may stop responding to insulin or the pancreas may stop producing insulin entirely. This leads to hyperglycemia, which may result in acute metabolic complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar nonketotic syndrome (HHNS). Long term effects of hyperglycemia contribute to macrovascular complications (coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral vascular diseases), chronic microvascular complications (kidney and eye disease) , and neuropathic complications (diseases of the nerves).

Step out, Muscle up

The squat is a great exercise for building your quads and hamstrings, but a slight tweak can help you work even more muscle. Squatting with a wide stance increases the activation of your glutes, says scientists from Italy. What’s more, setting your feet about twice hip-width apart, as the study participants did, doesn’t lessen the impact on your quads and hamstrings. But be careful: weak glutes can make your knees cave in. keep your knees in line with your toes by pushing outward with your knees as you stand back up.

Not just for better Heart and Lungs but for Better Eyesight also

Your heart and lungs aren’t the only body parts that benefit from cardio. Vigorous exercise may prevent vision loss. Two new studies indicate. A 7-year study of nearly 41,000 runners found that men who run regularly have a lower risk of developing cataracts. And in separate study, 110 men who ran more than four kilometers a day cut their risk of age related macular degeneration by as much as 54 percent. Study author Paul T. Williams, PhD, of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, says the next step is to determine how running preserves eyesight. In any case, keep going: Studies have already shown that vigorous exercise lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.

Protein, Simplified

Here’s a way to make your protein last longer. Canadian researchers have found that just 20grams of protein following your workout is enough to spend muscle growth. While more protein didn’t do harm, it didn’t provide any further benefit to the participant’s muscles.I know that I mention way back when I was young and vigorous, huh. I went to gym for a several time and after that I take protein milk. And a capsule of amino acids we all know that when the protein is broken down it became amino acids, so in that case I am taking a broken down protein. But because of this article now I know that all of those capsule and milk are just waste of money all I need is just 1 or 2 eggs a day.”
