This antioxidant could improve heart health 20.5.2018 General News

The data from the veterans adds to this evidence, and specifically looks at people living with HIV and at an anti-HIV drug, atazanavir, known to elevate bilirubin. The researchers did not see an independent effect of atazanavir on cardiovascular risk.Even if well-controlled by antiretroviral drugs, HIV infection has negative effects on cardiovascular health, said lead author Vincent ...

A group of right activists today came out in support of a former consultant at a UN body in Bihar who has alleged sexual harassment by her seniors and demanded that legal immunity granted to staffers of the United Nations be waived to help the police probe the matter and question the accused. The former United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) consultant said she was not able to exercise her constitutional rights and alleged the accused had not yet been questioned.

Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar today demanded the resignation of state PWD Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, holding him morally responsible for the flyover collapse here, in which 15 people lost their lives and several were injured.

Without taking the name of Maurya, who is also the deputy chief minister, Babbar said the minister concerned with the UP Bridge Corporation should resign on moral grounds and added that suspending officials, engineers and staff would not absolve him of his responsibility.
