Jag Chima, CEO of Physique Global and world renowned fitness entrepreneur, congratulates the nation on getting recognition from the Prime Minister that we need to give importance to our health.

How this aspect of personality can determine your work out goals 21.9.2019
Washington: Why is it that some individuals stick to their fitness goals while others do not? A new study has uncovered a personality trait which may predict your likeliness of engaging in a physical task. Individuals who make concrete plans to meet their goals are likely to engage in more physical activity, including gymming, as compared to those who don't. The findings of this study published in the Journal Psychological Science suggest that self-reported levels of a trait called 'planfulness' may translate into real-world differences in behavior. Some people seem to be able to more consistently meet their goals than others, but it remains unclear if personality traits that have been found to promote goal achievement in the lab similarly encourage individuals to achieve long-term goals in their day-to-day lives, said lead researcher Rita M. Ludwig of the University of Oregon. Conscientiousness, a measure of individuals' orderliness and dependability on the Big Five Inventory of ...
Appearance of ancient human species unveiled 21.9.2019
We know what Neanderthals looked like. Now, thanks to ancient DNA, Israeli scientists have unveiled the appearance of another of our ancient relatives. Very few clues exist about the lives of the Denisovans, cousins of Neanderthals, who went extinct around 50,000 years ago: three teeth, a pinky bone, and a lower jaw. But that was enough for researchers at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem to draw conclusions on their appearance. The mission was challenging, according to Professor Liran Carmel, one of two scientists leading the study. "It is very difficult to start from DNA sequences and end up with an anatomical profile," he said. If it were that easy, police around the world would be pulling DNA from crime scenes and drawing up profiles of the suspects, he added. Instead, he and his team reconstructed the appearance of the Denisovans after three years of examining the patterns of chemical changes in their ancient DNA. They then compared these motifs to those of the DNA of Neanderthals and ...
This protein consumption can slow down healing of fractures 21.9.2019
Washington: Researchers have found that a few proteins which are more prevalent in older people prevent the fractured bones from healing. Duke Scientists hope this discovery will lead to new treatments to help people heal after injuries or surgeries. "When we decreased the protein level, aging was reversed," said senior author Gurpreet Baht, Ph.D. and assistant professor in the Duke Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. "Not only was there more bone and healing happened faster, but it was also structurally more sound." Baht's team confirmed that older people have more Apolipoprotein E, ApoE for short, than younger people, reported the study published in JCI Insight. They wanted to figure out if and how ApoE affects the multi-step process of bone healing. When you break a bone, your body sends signals through the bloodstream to recruit cells to fix it. At last a different kind of cell eats up the cartilage scaffolds and osteoblasts fill those holes with bone. "Over time, this ...
