Now that spring is about to start, one of the most rewarding ways of spending your days is to start planting a garden to benefit your own health. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors gardening, at home or for your community, the proven benefits of gardening have made it a very popular hobby. Let’s take a look at some of the surprising benefits of gardening:

  • Stress Relief: Gardening reduces stress as it lowers the level of cortisol in people after just a few minutes. Since stress is a huge health risk, spending at least a small time gardening can be beneficial in the long term. Think about the years to come!

  • Heart Health: When doing gardening, people burn calories and keep active - as people must constantly move from one place to another and use physical force like digging, planting, and pulling. This helps reduce the risk for heart attack and stroke.

  • Better Sleep: Performing physical activity throughout the day can also make people sleep better at night, which is an important health benefit. Also, people with an outdoor garden can always hang a hammock and take a nap enjoying the garden’s vibes!

  • Family Heath: Gardening can be enjoyed even more if it’s done with someone you love, like a friend of family. Spending time bonding with others and working together on a project increase levels of happiness shared among the group.

  • Dirt for the little ones: Controlled exposure to dirt from the garden has been linked with health benefits for kids, reducing allergies to autoimmune diseases as they grow stronger with each battle won against foreign invaders. There’s nothing like some fresh air to start the day too!

Spring has finally sprung and it’s time to head outdoors and think about planting vegetables, flowers and tons of healthy thoughts into our gardens and souls!

It’s the season of colds and the flu and with the outbreak of the coronavirus called COVID-19, a respiratory disease, people should cut the risk of catching a respiratory illness on their next flight more than usual. Let’s review some tips on how to prevent it:

  • Your health is in your hands: The number one rule to prevent getting sick is to remember to wash your hands frequently. After you use the restroom, before eating a meal, or even after touching the bathroom’s doorknob, it’s always important to keep your hands free of virus particles.

  • Choose wisely: In order to minimize contact with other passengers, you should pick a window seat and stay put. Additionally, people in window seats come into contact with fewer passengers because they tend to leave their seats less often!

  • Keep your distance: Actually, the best place to sit is away from infected passengers. The ‘transmission zone’ of an infected person depends on the disease, but in the case of the coronavirus the perimeter of transmission risk extends to at least three rows around the sick passenger.

  • Wear your mask!: Masks should be worn both by healthy and infected people. If you’ve got the flu on a plane, prevent transmission by wearing a mask and open the overhead vent, as you eject infected particles when you cough or sneeze.

  • Drink lots of water: In-flight air has low humidity, which dries out your nose and making it less protective against infection. As you hydrate your body, the chance of this happening is smaller.

When it comes to your health -- and the health of those around you – you can never be too careful. So, let’s be smarter travelers and avoid those nasty bugs!

Avoid Getting Sick on Planes

 

An innovative tool may be able to detect many types of cancer quickly with just a small drop of blood. Some types like ovarian cancer usually stay undetected until it’s too advanced for treatment to be effective, but researchers from the University of Kansas have developed an ultra-sensitive cancer-detective chip device.

This ground-breaking device is called “3D-nanopatterned microfluidic chip” and it detects cancer by filtering for microscopic vesicles that some eukaryotic cells produce, called exosomes. Exosomes contain biological information that can direct tumor growth and spread effectively, and while all cells produce these vesicles, tumor cells are really active as opposed to normal cells.

It works by draining the liquid when particles are moving closer to the sensor surface with a nonporous structure. Then, the particles get in contact with the surface where probes can recognize and capture the exosomes.

One of the best features of this device is how easy it is to make, as well as being cheap to produce. Soon, millions of patients will be able to test themselves in order to diagnose tumors and cancer prematurely. The 3-D nanoatterning method is also very adaptable, which allows researchers to use it to diagnose many different forms of cancer, as well as other diseases.

With medical innovations like this, we can finally see a brighter future in regard to cancer and many other diseases that can help people around the world have a better life.
