Inflammation of the colon? Please try .. Olive Oil Consumption

Posted: Sunday, May 2, 2010 by minangka in

LOS ANGELES - Increased consumption of olive oil is thought to reduce the risk of suffering due to colitis, according to findings of a new study.
The new findings were presented Saturday in the Digestive Disease Week conference in New Orleans, United States.

Some researchers from the School of Medicine, University of East Anglia, in England, following the development of more than 25,000 people, aged 40-65 years, between 1993 and 1997. Not one participant was suffering from colitis at the beginning of the study. Until 2002, 22 participants had inflammatory disease.

The researchers compared the diet of all people that they are not infected with the disease and found that those with the most widely consumed "oleic acid" for a possible 90 percent lower for inflammatory bowel disease. "` Oleic acid is a fatty acid omega-9 unsaturated single-embedded on a variety of sources and animal and vegetable.

The researchers concluded that people who take their food rich "oleic acid" has a much smaller chance for esophageal inflammation of the colon. "` `Oleic acid seems to help prevent the development of colitis by blocking chemicals in the large intestine contained more severe inflammation in the disease," said study leader Dr. Andrew Hart at the University of East Anglia.

"We estimate that about half of cases of colitis can be prevented if` `oleic acid is consumed in greater numbers. Two-to-three tablespoons of olive oil per day will have an impact protection," he said. Colitis is an inflammatory disease entrails mengakitkan tract ulcers in the rectum and colon, resulting in abdominal pain, diarrhea and weight loss.

Mirror Neurons
Our neurons fire impulses so that we can do things like moving a hand in a certain direction to grab something. Mirror neurons fire same impulses when seeing someone doing the same complex movement, acting like virtual reality simulation neurons.

But what is the significance of this? How did that affect civilization? Did they really have a role in human evolution? And more importantly, is culture hereditary?

You might be more connected to human beings around you than you think.

In this video neuroscientist Vilayanur Ramachandran explains the wonderful function of mirror neurons.

Ramachandran is a neurologist who is interested in mapping out the brain's basic functions and reactions. He studies persons with strokes and neurological affection to help him in gaining such knowledge.

He is the director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California, San Diego, and an adjunct professor at the Salk Institute.

He is the author of Phantoms in the Brain, A Brief Tour of Human Consciousness and The Man with the Phantom Twin: Adventures in the Neuroscience of the Human Brain.
