Interestingly, neuroinflammation and memory problems were not seen in young adult rats that ate […]

According to a large Swedish study, there is a link between ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and dementia across generations. The study showed, based on the information from 2.132.929 people, that parents of children with ADHD had 34 % higher risk of dementia than than those with children without ADHD. On the other hand, the grandparents and […]

Ever heard of a fruitarian diet? It is one of the most restrictive diet choices available, which consists of 55% to 75% of raw fruit, with almost no evidence of health benefits. But fruit is good, you might argue. And you are right if fruit is eaten in moderate amounts. Fruits provide us with fructose, […]

It is not known yet what exactly causes cluster headache, but heredity is certainly one of the factors. In a recent large international study, the researchers were able to map this heredity by analyzing blood samples from 1.443 people with cluster headache and comparing them with samples from 6.748 control subjects. As a result, they […]

Chronic stress is one of the worse amenies for our mental health. It influences tremendiously our mood, our sleep quality, our abilites to think and react, and our energy level. All of these are our body’s reaction to stress, which involves the HPA axis ((hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis). Of course, how we react to the same stressors, […]

Glaucoma is a blinding eye disease that damages the optic nerve, often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye. As a result of this damage people become blind. This disease is typically genetic inherited. So, what can you do to decrease a chance of getting this disease if you have a someone in […]
