Scientists Have Developed a Gel That Can Actually Regrow Tooth Enamel

Humans have two sets of teeth in a lifetime, the baby teeth and the permanent “adult” teeth.

Teeth are the hardest bones in the body, but tooth decay and acids found in our food and drinks lead to loss of tooth enamel, which is the mineralized substance protecting their surface.

When generated, the cells that produce enamel die instantly, and it erodes, breaks, or chips, and can never regenerate itself again.

However, Chinese scientists have created a liquid solution able to grow back the tough external surface of damaged tooth enamel by using a material that mimics the natural mineralization process of the protective outer layer of the teeth.
This new gel actually makes enamel repair itself, as the method replicates the biomineralization process whereby cells known as ameloblasts release proteins that eventually become enamel.

However, ameloblasts are only present during tooth development, so our mature teeth have virtually no natural ability to self-repair after they have formed.

USC Researchers Discover How to Regenerate Entire Immune System in 72 Hours

While most of us resort to things like medicines and synthetic vitamins to boost immunity and fight colds, researchers believe there is a free and all-natural way to strengthen and recharge the immune system.

Researchers at the University of Southern California found that the act of fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly.

Fasting is not a fad since it was practiced in ancient civilizations, and numerous religions these days retain some form of the rite, often as a way to achieve focus and clarity.

In scientific circles, no less than Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, is said to have prescribed it to spur healing.

The six-month study was done on both mice and people currently going through chemotherapy, and researchers noticed a significant improvement in their health, as the white blood cells and other toxins in the body were flushed out over the course of the fast.

During the study’s trials, participants were asked t…

Celery: Reduces Inflammation and Improves Joint Health

Celery is a healthy vegetable, rich in minerals and vitamins that improve health in numerous ways. Megan Ware, a registered dietician nutritionist in Orlando, Florida, explains that since celery is mostly made of water, (almost 95 percent),” it is not particularly high in any vitamin or mineral.”

Yet, it is a rich source of vitamin K, with one cup containing about 30 percent of the recommended daily intake. This crunchy veggie will also satisfy your need for folate, potassium, fiber, and molybdenum.

Celery also contains good amounts of vitamin C, vitamin A, and some B vitamins. Its seeds are a natural diuretic, and it is naturally low in calories, carbohydrates, fat, and cholesterol.

Apart from the well-known antioxidants like apigenin, luteolin, vitamin C and flavonoids, scientists have identified over a dozen other types of antioxidant nutrients, including dihydrostilbenoids like lunularin, as well as furanocoumarins like bergapten and psoralen.

The antioxidant support we obtain fr…

Baby Born With Gray Hair Has The Internet Talking

We are all unique in our own way, and our world is a better place due to the diversity it abounds with.  Yet, there are times when we are simply reminded that we should appreciate life and its uniqueness.

It would be an understatement to say that people were surprised when baby Bence was born at a hospital in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.

The whole process ran smoothly, fortunately, with no complications or problems. It was a normal birth, and the baby boy weighed in at just under 12 pounds, stood at 21 inches high, and was born with a full head of hair.

However, what makes this adorable baby unique is that he came into the world with a head full of beautiful snow-white hair! His parents were happy to know that he is in perfect health, but doctors were puzzled and couldn’t indicate the cause of it.

The baby is not an albino, a condition in which the skin lacks melanin pigment. Physicians examined a sample of his blood and tested his melanin levels.

The main doctor in charge of Bence’s cas…

A Park Ranger Comforts A Sad Gorilla That Just Lost Its Mother

Losing a parent is a tragic experience, and the sorrow it causes is not exclusive to humans.

Photographer Phil Moore took a heartbreaking photo showing a park ranger comforting a gorilla that lost its mother to poachers. Patrick Karabaranga is a ranger at the Virunga National Park in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Situated in a region which has been deeply affected by the effects of war and armed conflict for over 20 years, Virunga is protected by a dedicated team of over 600 rangers.

These local men and women go through intensive training, and risk their lives on a daily basis to safeguard the exceptional wildlife of the national park, including the last of the world’s critically endangered mountain gorillas. With over 200 mountain gorillas, it accounts for about a quarter of the world’s mountain gorilla population.

Captured in July 2012, this photograph documents the gorilla’s capacity to express loss and Karabaranga’s compassion for an individual of another species.
