American scientists claim that eating foods with a high glycemic index increases the activity areas of the brain responsible for feelings of pleasure, the formation of traction and addiction.

American scientists claim that eating foods with a high glycemic index leads to the fact that increases the activity areas of the brain responsible for feelings of pleasure, addiction and the formation of thrust. Stimulation of similar brain areas noted in the formation of various types of addictions such as drug, tobacco, alcohol or another.

Mechanism of the effect of foods rich in carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, potatoes) is that carbohydrates are the fastest split body that causes a sharp increase in blood glucose, and then a sharp drop in its level.

This occurs within four hours after a meal - a time determining eating behavior during the next meal. Lack of sharp glucose activates the appropriate parts of the brain depending on the formation, which was confirmed by testing the activity of the brain using MRI.

These results suggest that the restriction in the diet foods with high glycemic index does not allow people to buy a full dependence on them, and, accordingly, do not overeat.

Adipose tissue surrounding the prostate gland of men with obesity, creates favorable conditions for the progression of prostate cancer.

What is the prostate gland
The prostate gland - is musculo-glandular organ located below the bladder and surrounding the initial portion of the urethra. The main function of the prostate is to produce secretions, which is part of semen. Ducts of the prostate glands open into the urethra.

Prostate cancer
In the early stages of prostate cancer does not manifest itself. Complaints are associated with tumor spread and metastasis. At the stage the only manifestation of the lack of symptoms, allowing the disease to suspect, is to increase blood levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA). As prevention of prostate cancer for all men should conduct an annual PSA test beginning at age 45.

By increasing the size of the tumor shows the following symptoms:
  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Urinary incontinence
  • urge to urinate.
The essence of the study

Scientists have received samples of adipose tissue surrounding the prostate gland in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer and prostate cancer. Regardless of prostate disease in men with obesity , there is increased activity of genes in fat cells. These genes encode proteins involved in the immune response, inflammation, growth, reproduction, and cell death.

Increase in the activity of genes leads to inhibition of the immune response and stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, which creates favorable conditions for the progression of prostate cancer. The study's authors hope that the findings will more carefully selected treatments for patients with obesity.

Please read the following article to see if any of the items listed apply to you. If they do - then a lifestyle change for you is imminent. It shows how smoking, alcohol, drugs, prescription medicines, etc can affect a guy's penis and reproductive system. Stress, anxiety, depression, diet, lack of exercise all play an important role in your sexual health also.

Definite DON'Ts

Smoking - Nicotine reduces arterial pressure and as a result, prevents blood circulation to the penis. In addition, toxic substances from smoking are detrimental for sperm maturation.

Alcohol - Alcohol kills reproductive cells and decreases sperm viability. It also disrupts the link between the brain and the penis. Excessive use of alcohol inhibits the creation of the male sex hormone, androgen.

Marijuana - Sharply reduces the level of male sexual hormones, disrupts chromosomes and promotes undesired genetic changes.

Overweight - Being overweight can disrupt your hormone balance and, as a result, the production of hormones necessary for achieving erection can become insufficient.

Anabolic Steroids - Anabolic steroids bear a close resemblance to testosterone and as a result, the body stops its natural production causing impotence to occur.

High Cholesterol - Too much cholesterol blocks the vessels providing blood to the penis and thereby reduces the blood flow necessary to maintain an erection.

Chemical drugs - Studies show that out of two hundred most used medicines; as many as sixteen are likely to cause impotence. Among the most risky are drugs used for the treatment of high blood pressure, depression, insomnia, ulcers, tumors, plus a couple of medications used to combat allergy.

Scientists from New York came to the conclusion that only one apple a day may reduce the risk of cancer of the breast. However, for this it is necessary to include in your diet and also some other products, write the foreign media.

If on apple eat in combination with other fruits and vegetables, it will significantly reduce the risk of cancer in women. It does not really matter what kind of products will be included in the diet further.

The study showed that apples contain large amounts of phenolic resin and flavonoids, which are very effective in the prevention of cancer.

An experiment was conducted on laboratory mice, the risk of cancer which was 81%. Within 24 weeks of scientists gave rodents 1, 2 or 3 portions apples. When the experiment was over, it was found that the risk of developing cancer in mice who ate one serving of apples a day, up 57% from consuming 2 servings - 50%, while those eating 3 servings - 23%.

American researchers have found that each person has a nose specific detector fat. With it, we can determine the level of this substance in different products.

Scientists at the California Science Center have found another way to avoid overeating, which can be used along with counting calories and a careful selection of products. It turns out that the person in the nose has its own excellent for detection of fat smell given to us by nature. Researchers believe that people can easily incorporate this detector for the regulation of its power.

Scientists believed that the smell of food is almost always determined by the man before he eats anything. It turned out that one of the first components of this odor is received by us olfactory information about whether the food contains fat. And if using innovative technologies, food producers will smell of fat in food more perceptible for the health of society, it will lead to a significant roll in the general trend of development of a worldwide epidemic of obesity .

"Our sense of smell allows us to significantly better orientation in everyday life than we used to think - said study author Dr. Johan. - We have the ability to determine the difference in fat content in the diet, which means that this ability provides specifically for evolution, and it is important. From time immemorial, the fat has been source of energy in the human body, and we learned to recognize the smell of greasy food to get this energy. Similarly, the sweet taste of foods high in carbohydrates is a sign that we obtain the energy of carbohydrates. "
