A possible way to check mosquito menace is being explored.  Keep your feet clean before sleep which may reduce chances of  mosquito bites.  That is a tip given by scientists as chances for mosquito bites are more when feet are soiled with odor creating bacteria attracting mosquitoes.

Latest on IVF

Reports have come up indicating dramatic progress made in the field of IVF technologies.  First and foremost is a report that a team of Oxford University researchers says that in near future, that is within 18 months' time they shall be in a position to introduce new egg testing procedures cutting the expenditure to half.  IVF cost  is presently on the higher side in western countries and comparatively less in Asian countries like India especially.  Hence medical tourism to countries  with lower costs is definitely a good proposition to avail this benefit   But the new procedure  introducing simplified and error free tests to select good egg  is definitely another great achievement.  Another advantage is that it eliminates the trial and error methods done at present.  If interested,  you may read the media report.

Do You Face Problems Affecting Memory?

Do you face problems affecting memory?  Concentrate eating chicken and eggs says, Rhoda Au, Phd , Associated Professor of Neurology at Boston University School of Medicine.  After a research study conducted on 1400 persons for a prolonged period of 10 years, the team came to the conclusion that Choline,  a nutrient   largely available in eggs and chicken is helping to enhance memory,  .
  Choline is essential for body to remain healthy and its source is mainly fatty meat and eggs. Those who are affected with dementia may therefore start eating more chicken and egg, of course under advise from their dietitian.
 Another study   by Dr.Steven Zeisel based on data from NHANES 2003-2004 brought to notice that American people older men and women, childrenand pregnant women are found to be deficient in choline intake and has advised adequate intake as 425 mg for women and 550 mg for men per day. And in case of pregnant and breast feeding women the need for choline is greater since growing child needs more of it for development.
