Emerging sex disease MG 'could become next superbug'-British Association of Sexual Health reveals -https://youtu.be/pbmR01GqvCo An HIV vaccine that has the potential to protect people around the world from the virus has shown promising results. The treatment, which aims to provide immunity against various strains of the virus, produced an anti-HIV immune system response in tests on 393 people, a study in the Lancet found. It also protected some monkeys from a virus that is similar to HIV. More testing is now needed to determine if the immune response produced can prevent HIV infection in people. About 37 million people worldwide live with HIV or Aids, and there are an estimated 1.8 million new cases every year. But despite advances in treatment for HIV, both a cure and a vaccine for the virus have so far remained elusive. The drug Prep, or pre-exposure prophylaxis, is effective at preventing HIV infection, but, unlike a vaccine, it needs to be taken regularly, even daily, to prevent the virus from taking hold. Inventing a vaccine has proved an immense challenge for scientists, in part because there are so many strains of the virus, but also because HIV is adept at mutating to elude attack from our immune systems. Previous attempts at HIV vaccines have been limited to specific strains of the virus found in certain parts of the world. But for this "mosaic" vaccine, scientists have developed a treatment made up of pieces of different HIV viruses. The hope is that it could offer much better protection against the almost unlimited number of HIV strains found across the world. IMAGES In a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, scientists tested various combinations of the mosaic vaccine in people aged 18 to 50 who did not have HIV and were healthy. The participants, from the US, Rwanda, Uganda, South Africa, and Thailand, received four vaccinations over the course of 48 weeks. All of the vaccine combinations produced an anti-HIV immune system response and were found to be safe. Scientists also carried out a parallel study where they gave rhesus monkeys the vaccine to protect them from getting simian-human immunodeficiency virus - a virus similar to HIV that infects monkeys. The mosaic vaccine combination that showed the most promise in humans was found to protect 67% of the 72 monkeys from getting the disease. "These results represent an important milestone," said Dan Barouch, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and lead author of the study. However, Prof Barouch also cautioned that the findings needed to be interpreted with caution. Though the vaccine triggered a response in the immune system of the people who took it, it is not clear if this would be enough to fight off the virus and prevent infection. "The challenges in the development of an HIV vaccine are unprecedented, and the ability to induce HIV-specific immune responses does not necessarily indicate that a vaccine will protect humans from HIV infection," he added. 'Promising signs' Nevertheless, the promising results of the study mean researchers will next test the treatment on 2,600 women in southern Africa who are at risk of getting the illness - one of only five vaccines to make it to this stage of so-called efficacy trials. Only one vaccine has ever shown evidence of protecting against HIV. A vaccine tested in Thailand lowered the rate of human infection by 31%, but the effect was considered too low to advance it to common use. Dr Michael Brady, medical director at the Terrence Higgins Trust, said it was early days for the vaccine but the signs were "promising". "However, it's important to be cautious and be clear that there's a lot of work to do before an effective HIV vaccine is readily available." Dr Brady added that in the meantime there were already tools that were effective for preventing the disease from spreading, such as contraception and treatments for HIV-positive people that prevent them from passing on the virus.

Subtitle is on. turn on CC button for Subtitle. Watermelon is the perfect summertime treat, but stopping to spit out the seeds can dampen enthusiasm for the fruit. Skittish adults might get nervous about choking on the seeds; kids fear that a rogue seed will cause a watermelon to grow in their stomachs. No need to worry, though! Experts say you should have zero fears — watermelon seeds are perfectly safe to eat. If you get a mouthful of seeds along with that sweet, juicy watermelon flesh, it's totally fine. Of course they won't taste like much, so if you want something a little more interesting keep reading. 3 More Ways to Eat Watermelon Seeds 1. Make sprouted watermelon seeds. Like chia and flax seeds, watermelon seeds contain nutrients such as vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, and zinc, which studies have linked with various health benefits. They are also a good source of healthy fats and protein. There's a catch, however: To get the full dose of protein, you have to eat the seeds when they're sprouted, and after you've gotten rid of that tough black shell. And that process takes at least a few days. First the seeds have to soak in water overnight, and then you have to wait for a few days until they're visibly sprouted. At that point, they're ready to get dried in the oven, dehydrator, or under the sun. And after that, you can eat them as a healthy snack. 2. Buy watermelon seed oil. There are other ways to consume watermelon seeds to get their nutritional benefits. In West Africa, people make watermelon seeds into oil. Also known as ootanga oil or kalahari oil, you can cook with it, drizzle it on salads, or even use it topically on the skin. Note: It's not particularly cheap! 3. Roast your watermelon seeds. You can also roast your seeds — after spreading the seeds on a baking sheet, they need about 15 minutes in the oven at 325°F to make them brown and crispy. You lose some of the nutritional content that way, but they're still a tasty snack — especially when enhanced with a bit of olive oil and sea salt. reference- Alexandra Ossola Contributor Alexandra (Alex) Ossola is a freelance journalist based in Brooklyn.

Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar) Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar) is an oral medication that slows hair loss in some men. It works by blocking the production of the male hormone responsible for hair loss. Finasteride has a higher success rate than minoxidil. When you stop taking finasteride, your hair loss returns. You must take finasteride for three months to one year before you see results. If no hair growth occurs after one year, your doctor will likely recommend that you stop taking the medication. The side effects of finasteride include: depression itching rash hives breast tenderness breast growth swelling of the face or lips painful ejaculation pain in testicles difficulty getting an erection Although it’s rare, finasteride can cause breast cancer. You should have any breast pain or lumps evaluated by a doctor immediately. Finasteride may affect prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests used to screen for prostate cancer. The medication lowers PSA levels, which causes lower-than-normal readings. Any rise in PSA levels when taking finasteride should be evaluated for prostate cancer.

Aloe Vera and Diabetes- Preliminary research suggests that intake of aloe vera juice can help improve blood glucose levels and may therefore be useful in treating people with diabetes. Aloe has also been linked with:: • Decreased blood lipids (fats) in patients with abnormally high levels of these molecules in the blood (e.g. some people with type 2 diabetes) and/or acute hepatitis (liver disease) • Decreased swelling and faster healing of wound injuries. Leg wounds and ulcers are common complications of diabetes, and they typically take longer time to heal than in healthy non-diabetic individuals. These positive effects are thought to be due to the presence of compounds such as lectins, mannans and anthraquinones. other health benefits it has: As well as being mainly used to help soothe and heal skin problems and irritations, aloe vera also: • Supports digestive system health • Helps treat constipation • Helps the healing process in regards to both pain and inflammation • Prevents scars after surgery • Aids dental health In addition, preliminary studies suggest that oral aloe vera gel may reduce symptoms and inflammation in patients with ulcerative colitis, which is a form of inflammatory bowel disease. reference- www.diabetes.co.uk/natural-therapies/aloe-vera.html

Minoxidil works by helping the blood flow to the hair follicles and increasing follicular size and hair shaft diameter, stimulating and prolonging hair growth. Minoxidil was discovered during clinical trials for high blood pressure treatment. During trials, minoxidil showed signs of being able to regrow hair. Minoxidil increases blood flow which stimulates hair follicles, promoting hair regrowth in 4 ways: 1. Reverses miniaturisation of follicles. 2. Increases blood flow around follicles. 3. Stimulates follicle movement from resting to hair growth phase. 4. Extends each follicle’s growth phase. REFERENCE-https://www.regaine.co.uk/minoxidil

You're most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (when your ovaries are releasing an egg). This usually happens about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it's released. For you to get pregnant, a sperm must fertilise the egg within this time. Sperm can live for up to 7 days inside your body. For the best chance of success, you should have sex every 2 to 3 days throughout the month. You don't need to time it to coincide with the days when you ovulate.

Using the derma roller for hair loss If you are male or female and experiencing baldness, thinning hair or alopecia (hair loss), the derma roller can help. It is used to stimulate hair growth, and can be used in two different ways to help repair hair loss. Read on to find out how to use the derma roller for hair loss… Method 1. Using the derma roller with minoxidil Using the derma roller for hair loss If you are male or female and experiencing baldness, thinning hair or alopecia (hair loss), the derma roller can help. It is used to stimulate hair growth, and can be used in two different ways to help repair hair loss. Read on to find out how to use the derma roller for hair loss… Method 1. Using the derma roller with minoxidil Method 2. Using the derma roller without minoxidil How to use the derma roller for hair loss (If using Method 2, simply follow the instructions below without using minoxidil). The most effective way to use minoxidil with a derma roller is to first roll the scalp with the derma roller, then apply minoxidil to the rolled area (although if you prefer you can apply minoxidil first, then use your derma roller to roll it in). The derma roller creates temporary channels in the skin. These channels close within 30 minutes to an hour, so it is essential to apply the minoxidil as soon as possible after rolling for maximum effect. Start with 2% minoxidil and apply it with a derma roller every other day. If you do not experience any irritation or other side effects, you can start applying it every day and/or start using 5% minoxidil. Derma roller for hair loss instructions 1. Wet your hair before using the derma roller on your scalp. This will help prevent your hair from getting tangled in the roller. 2. Begin using the derma roller at the front of the scalp on or near the hairline and work your way down the back of the head (treating only the areas where hair loss has occurred). 3. Focussing on one section of the scalp at a time, roll each area 10-15 times. You can do this by rolling horizontally, vertically and diagonally, three or four times each way. Roll in one direction only when the needles are in contact with the scalp (don’t go backwards and forwards) and try to roll from the hair roots to the ends. This will prevent any hair getting caught in the needles. 5. Repeat this process until you have covered all areas needing the treatment. 6. Apply minoxidil to the treated area and massage gently into the scalp You only need to apply a moderate amount of pressure. Rolling too aggressively won’t give you better results and can cause skin irritation, scratches and/or needle marks. Which size derma roller for hair loss? Which needle length you need depends on whether you are using Method 1 (using derma roller with minoxidil) or Method 2 (derma roller only). Method 1. Use a needle length between 0.2mm and 0.5mm (never use a needle length longer than 0.5mm with minoxidil because the active ingredients in the minoxidil can absorb too deeply into the scalp, causing side effects). Method 2. Use a needle length between 0.5mm and 1.0mm. How often to use derma roller for hair loss? A 0.2mm or 0.3mm derma roller can be used with minoxidil every day or every other day (start by using every other day and see how your skin reacts to the minoxidil; if you do not experience any side effects you can increase to using every day). A 0.5mm derma roller can be used with or without minoxidil 2-3 times a week. A 1.0mm derma roller used without minoxidil can be used once a week to once a fortnight.

4 Watermelon Rind Benefits Watermelon may be one of the most appropriately named fruits. It’s a melon that’s 98 percent water. It’s also got a healthy amount of vitamin A and C, potassium, magnesium, and other important nutrients. The most popular part of the watermelon is the pink fruit, but like its cousin, the cucumber, the whole thing is edible. This includes the green scraps that usually end up in the compost bin. The rind, which is the green skin that keeps all that water-logged delicious fruit safe, is completely edible. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider not throwing it out. 1. It May Make You Better in Bed No, watermelon rind isn’t nature-powered Viagra, but some research shows that it may help men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. Its libido-boosting powers come from the amino acid citrulline, which is concentrated in the rind. One study showed that taking L-citrulline supplements can improve erections without many of the potential side effects associated with Viagra. Try spritzing your watermelon rind with lemon juice and sprinkling some chili powder on it. Both additives also are good for your heart, and your, ahem, other love organ. 2. It Might Give Your Workout a Boost Besides improving your performance in bed, citrulline might improve your next athletic performance as well. However, most evidence for this is anecdotal. To get it naturally, try pickled watermelon rinds, an old-fashioned treat in the southern states. 3. It Can Reduce Your Blood Pressure If your doctor instructed you to lower your blood pressure, try eating watermelon — rind and all. Some research has shown that watermelon extract supplements are able to help obese adults control their blood pressure. Watermelon is also a potential diuretic, which often is prescribed for people with high blood pressure. Try freezing whole watermelon slices for a nice treat on a summer’s day. 4. It Can Help Your Prostate Watermelon is a great source of lycopene, an antioxidant that could possibly help ward off prostate cancer. More research is needed to establish a concrete relationship between lypocene and cancer prevention, but preliminary studies are promising. Lycopene is also found in the skin of tomatoes, so give those a try, too. Watermelon’s diuretic properties can also help keep your urinary tract in healthy working order reference- https://www.healthline.com/health/food-nutrition/watermelon-rind-benefits#1
