Scientists from UC Berkeley has found and isolated a dormant stem cell in blood vessel walls that causes heart disease in old age. This finding, published in the journal Nature Communications, is considered a breakthrough as it contradicts all previous theories that explained why arterial hardening occurs.
Dr. Deepak Srivastava, director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease at UCSF, explains the significance of these findings by saying, “These findings shift the paradigm … If the new data holds up, the target for treating vascular disease may be very different than what we’ve been aiming at … Maybe the reason we’ve met with limited success in treating heart disease is because we’ve been going after the wrong target.”
In other words, once this theory is tested to be true by other research organizations, a fresh approach will be taken by drug companies to find ways to shut down these negative stem cells even before it gets to the stage where someone has to face the threat of a heart attack.
The conventional approach, as mentioned above, has been to treat the heart disease when it forms, and with this discovery, once accepted, heart disease as we know it, will become a thing of the past.
Although Li conducted most of his research on mice, and awaits confirmation of this discovery by other research teams, what this does is cause medical professionals to question whether some theories that have been discarded or even those that are accepted as fact in today’s world.
But no matter what, the truth still is that there is much that we don’t know about the human body and our existence as a whole.

Is learning cursive handwriting beneficial?
The answer to that question is in the negative as a number of American states are taking it off their curricula and replacing it with typing so as to prepare children for the real world that is dominated by technology.
In expressing her disbelief at this exclusion of cursive handwriting, Linden Bateman, an Idaho state representative, recently said, “Modern research indicates that more areas of the human brain are engaged when children use cursive handwriting than when they keyboard. We’re not thinking this through. It’s beyond belief to me that states have allowed cursive to slip from the standards.”
Some schools have reduced the spending of instruction time on cursive writing from an hour a day to 10-15 minutes a day because for them, getting the children to be able to sign their own name and read cursive writing should suffice.
This move is not supported by studies which have shown that when kids learn to write by hand, it activates the sensorimotor memory, which in turn, contributes to being able to read much better. Studies have also shown that this skill of reading is diminished if children learn to type instead.
Although schools still continue to focus on cursive writing, this aspect is being ignored now due to the number of subjects that have to be taught and the demands of technology that is used in the world today.
Since typing will prepare kids for adulthood but cursive writing won’t, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the former will remain in the classroom while the latter is only learned in the artroom as the years go by.

DNA sequencing is one of the many reasons microbiology has made this an exciting time to be alive. By discovering the exact sequence of a DNA molecule’s nucleotides, scientists have a wide open door to explore the outer limits of science.
For example, a polymerase chain reaction can be used to magnify a few copies of DNA thousands or even millions of times over. A PCR primer is used to start the amplification and, when the process is over, scientist have a better idea of the DNA molecule’s sequence.
DNA is considered a polyribo or polyribonucleotide, meaning it has at least thirteen nucleotide monomers that are bonded in a chain (covalently). When this chain can be sequenced, scientists can hope to do everything from cure a disease to create a clone. While some people might find this unsettling, it’s important to remember this is the way of science—especially biology. People were horrified by the idea of puncturing their body with a needle, but then vaccinations and intravenous medicine changed that perception.
One day DNA sequencing will be used to not only cure all diseases, but improve the health of those who are disease-free. Scientists will be able to fortify our DNA against possible threats before they even make contact.

The spine is an essential and very special part of the body. It houses major parts of our nervous system and injuries to it can affect seemingly unrelated parts of your body. Unfortunately, this can very painful.
Spinal decompression San Diego residents receive can be very helpful at reversing the effects of spinal injuries due to auto accidents.

By doing this the method can treat a bulging disc, a herniated disc, sciatica caused by a spinal irregularity and stenosis.
A patient can also achieve spinal decompression by using inversion therapy, which allows them to hang upside down, essentially relieving all the pressure is constantly under from standing around all day and sitting.
