  1. Treadmill is handy equipment that takes very little space and does not need a dedicated room only for exercise.
  2. Its surface is flat and trustworthy for running and walking.
  3. It helps improve cardio activity
  4. One can gage their calories burnt and heartbeat through the digital meters.
  5. Custom speeds can be set on treadmill and friction levels and steepness can also be adjusted.

Autism: Pathophysiology and Promising Herbal Remedies!

World Autism Awareness Day 2016 will be observed on the 2nd of April 2016. Here is an insightful research article on Autism from Bentham Science Publishers.

Abstract: Autism is a comprehensive growth abnormality in which social skills, language, communication, and behavioral skills are developed with delay and as diversionary. The reasons for autism are unclear, but various theories of genetics, immunity, biological, and psychosocial factors have been proffered. In fact, autism is a complex disorder with distinct causes that usually co-occur. Although no medicine has been recognized to treat this disorder, pharmacological treatments can be effective in reducing its signs, such as self-mutilation, aggression, repetitive and stereotyped behaviors, inattention, hyperactivity, and sleeping disorders. Recently, complementary and alternative approaches have been considered to treat autism. Ginkgo biloba is one of the most effective plants with an old history of applications in neuropsychological disorders which recently is used for autism. The present review discusses the recent findings, pathophysiology, and etiology of autism and thereafter addresses the promising results of herbal remedies.

Earth Under Attack of Toxic Chemicals!

The planet we live in has been through a lot naturally and thanks to the occurrences, has undergone several changes. So have the resources it offers, altered and reduced with time. But it has never borne beating to the levels it suffers today. As the humans have multiplied and industrial advancements have grown the ecology has had to face a rather tough time.


Among many hazards introduced by mankind the worst have been the spread of toxic chemicals. In order to make goods and facilities available to most of the humans, the industries have developed rapidly. The production levels of products are massive now and so are the levels of waste materials. The toxic waste has to be dumped somewhere and mostly it is disposed in open areas, either under water or the land. Ironically, living beings existing in all such places get extremely adversely affected. As all life on Earth is interdependent for survival, therefore we, humans, bear the toll as well.

There has been much talk nowadays about disposing the waste out of the planet into the space but it is a very far-fetched and unrealistic idea for now.

Dr. Francisco Sánchez-Bayo and his colleagues have written in great detail about the topic of toxic waste affecting the ecology on Earth in their book, Ecological Impacts of Toxic Chemicals.

Article by disease : Sleep, Depression and Insomnia – A Vicious Circle?

Journal: Current Psychiatry Reviews

Abstract: Sleep, depression and insomnia have manifold associations. Psychiatric sleep research in affective disorders has demonstrated that sleep in depression is characterized by an impairment of sleep continuity, deficits in slow wave sleep and a disinhibition of REM sleep (including shortened REM latency and increased REM density). Traditionally, insomnia, i.e. prolonged latency to fall asleep and increased frequency of nocturnal wake periods, was considered as an unspecific symptom of affective disorders. In the meantime, a shift in clinical and scientific focus has taken place viewing insomnia in addition as an independent diagnostic entity and as a clinical predictor of depression.

“Potential of Organic Farming in Production of Environment Friendly Sugarcane”

Journal: Current Nutrition & Food Science

3-30-2016 10-55-06 AM

Sugarcane draws heavily from soil and requires corresponding replenishment of nutrients. With the increasingly crop residue and farm waste, finding alternative uses for supplementing the soil has become more acute. Long-term use of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides to enhance the productivity of sugarcane results in deterioration of soil quality and the decline in productivity. It also contributes to the accumulation of heavy metals in soil and raising concern about crop production and potential impact on human health.

Depression is Diabolic!

Depression and anxiety have for ages been thought to be temporary problems that fade away with the passage of time. They occur in people who have suffered from some loss and as they move on the ill effects disappear.


Contrary to this understanding, for the people battling with depression moving on is not a usual happening. Psychiatrists have recently studied, observed and written a lot about such mental problems and have come to conclude that these are far more resilient than thought. Being utterly diabolic, depression lurks in the mind and only unveils itself with the occurrence of certain negative incidents like someone beloved leaving oneself for someone else etc. According to the psychiatrists if the aggrieved person stays in distress for two weeks it is natural, but if the dire pain prevails longer, then certainly the problem is different.

Depression sufferers can’t rid themselves of their dark thoughts. They keep thinking them over and over because they can’t find a logical response to their problems. Commonly they try to find solace with friends but their anxiety is so imminent in their behavior that their friends can feel it too. Others find it hard to stay with the sufferers as very few can understand and deal with such people. This can further magnify the mental issues. The best help for them are the psychiatrists and a visit to them should never be avoided.

Bentham Science has the best psychiatrists in the world readily contributing to the research journals for psychiatry.


EurekAlert! –Uric acid, gout and kidney disease: The chicken or the egg?

The increasing prevalence of both gout and chronic kidney disease has led to a growing interest in the association between hyperuricemia (an abnormally high level of uric acid in the blood) and kidney disease

The increasing prevalence of both gout and chronic kidney disease has led to a growing interest in the association between hyperuricemia (an abnormally high level of uric acid in the blood) and kidney disease.

A new thematic issue of The Open Urology & Nephrology Journal, titled ‘Current Perspectives in Hyperuricemia, Gout and the Kidney,’ reports on the interplay of various factors, particularly the role of the kidney in uric acid excretion on the one hand, and the possible impact of hyperuricemia on progression of renal disease on the other. The common patho-physiological link appears to be the chronic, low-grade, systemic inflammation that is intrinsic to both conditions, and that may explain some of the perplexing observations noted in these clinical conditions.
