Death in the city: the grisly secrets of dealing with Victorian London's dead 22.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
In this abridged extract from his new book Dirty Old London , Lee Jackson investigates a much-overlooked aspect of the city’s notorious 19th-century filth problem: the human corpse As well as sewerage, another “waste removal” problem plagued London in the 19th century: the disposal of the dead. There was little dispute about the means. Burial was the norm; cremation a peculiar foreign custom. The difficulty lay in finding room for an ever-increasing number of corpses. The capital’s burgeoning population, upon their decease, were filling up its small churchyards, burial grounds and vaults. The consequences, wherever demand exceeded supply, were decidedly unpleasant. Coffins were stacked one atop the other in 20-foot-deep shafts, the topmost mere inches from the surface. Putrefying bodies were frequently disturbed, dismembered or destroyed to make room for newcomers. Disinterred bones, dropped by neglectful gravediggers, lay scattered amidst the tombstones; smashed coffins were sold to the poor for ...

AIDS still a very real problem: HIV discoverer 15.1.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Thirty years hence the discovery of HIV, where does the research on HIV vaccines and treatment stand? AIDS is still a very actual problem. There are treatments to control the disease but they do not cure. We are now looking at how to eradicate the viral infection, apart from the vaccine research. There are some co-factors that help the virus thrive in the human body. We cannot make a vaccine without knowing everything about the virus and we are yet to learn more from what we know currently about curbing it. While antibodies neutralize a virus, HIV is a difficult one. It likes to resist the immune system and stay in the body. So strengthening the immune system through good nutrition and strong mindset is the key. At the beginning of the 20th century, the HIV existed but it blew into an epidemic only by 1980s in US and Africa. We are yet to understand the factors that increased it's virulence. Homeopathy is not considered a mainstream form of medicine while some equal it to quackery. Your work on water ...

Cooling brain protein could aid search for Alzheimer\'s treatment 14.1.2015 DNA: India
Scientists have found a mechanism that kicks in when the body is cooled and prevents the loss of brain cells, and say their find could one day lead to treatments for brain-wasting diseases such as Alzheimer's. Studying mice, the researchers were able to simulate the effects of body cooling and pick apart the workings of a so-called "cold-shock" protein in the brain, RBM3, which has previously been linked with preventing brain cell death. "We've known for some time that cooling can slow down or even prevent damage to brain cells, but reducing body temperature is rarely feasible in practice (because) it's unpleasant and involves risks such as pneumonia and blood clots, By identifying how cooling activates a process that prevents the loss of brain cells, we can now work towards finding a means to develop drugs that might mimic the protective effects of cold on the brain." said Giovanna Mallucci who led the research. Scientists already know that lowering body temperature can protect the brain. People can ...
