Meet the Molecule That Just Cured Cataracts

If you learned that a molecule originally isolated in sheep’s wool could reduce and even eliminate cataracts in dogs, would you consider that therapy for yourself? It’s a question you might be answering very soon. Scientific research and testing indicate that the molecule, lanosterol, may play a vital role in addressing the cause of one of the world’s most common vision impairments.

Today, A Global Challenge
Cataracts are responsible for 50 percent of all blindness globally reflecting the growth of our aging population world-wide. Currently, the only effective treatments involve either scalpel or laser surgery and replacement of the eye lens. Once the crystallin protein in healthy eyes begins to age and break down, it becomes the obstructive cataracts that impair vision and can lead to blindness.

In 2015, a University of California research team followed up on case studies indicating the potential of lanosterol as an effective treatment for cataracts. Their remarkable efforts made headlines across the scientific community. The UC San Diego team reached its conclusions after a series of three experimental trials. The results were impressive and even dissolved cataracts in dogs. FULL POST

What is cataract? Is it a cataract in my dog's eye?

Just like a camera, eyes also contain clear lenses inside them and this lens help in focusing. A cataract is an opacity within the lens. This opacity can be small and might not interfere with your vision. However, sometimes, it can cause more problem in vision. Eventually, the entire lens will become cloudy, and the functional vision gets lost. This is called as Mature Cataract. Some of these cataracts become hypermature cataracts. This reduces in size due to loss of water and protein in the lens which in return causes the lens capsule to wrinkle and shrivel. Hypermature cataract varies in their cloudy appearance and some of them have clarity in between. Depending on the dog’s age and breed, it can take several months to years for a mature cataract to turn into a hyper mature cataract.

What is not a cataract?
The normal geriatric dog usually develops a hardening of the lens that causes the lens to get a grayish appearance. The gray-blue haze keeps on increasing with the age of the dog. Nuclear Sclerosis is not cataract and it usually does not interfere with the vision. This problem also occurs in humans and the hardening of the lens with increasing age results in reduced near vision in people and that's why most of the people in their 40s starting wearing reading glasses. It is because their lenses are no more soft to change to allow the vision to near object. FULL POST

4 Guiding Principles to a Perfect Writing Voice

A weblog can be an achievement story only if it contains one essential element: the voice.

The voice of your weblog is its primary attraction and its absence will detract rather than generate hobby from new traffic. Alternatively, a strong voice will ignite their hobby a lot as to compel them to press that RSS button.

So how would you give this voice in your weblog to make your readers stay with you and ask for more?

While people cannot literally hear you speak in your blog, your choice of words and the manner of using them would be the thing that will get them, time and time again.

I am pretty sure voice was never taught to you by your English teachers during your 8th grade and I can say that I don’t exactly hold them to it. Voice is a hard thing to teach as it is often abstract in form.

But let me correct that oversight by teaching you 4 principles to guide you to get a perfect writing voice every time you write a blog.

1. Go with the tide
Get into a daily 3-minute warm-up by writing about anything and everything that comes to you. Instead of concentrating on quality of the article, focus more on how fast you can write words within that 3-minute deadline. Set a timer and write as fast as you can without taking your fingers off the keyboard or pen off the paper. The writing you’ll come up with could be funny, natural, and unique. FULL POST

4 Important Tips for College Students About Identity Theft

College students are the prime target for identity theft.

Why?

Because students are typically young adults, which are people that just became of legal age. They usually don’t have a blemished borrowing history. They also tend to get a ton of junk mail sent to them, which is usually discarded without getting shredded.

This makes the student population highly exposed to identity theft risks. It’s also why CNBC reported that students are four-times more likely to get victimized.

But students have ways to protect themselves and since they are new borrowers some of these techniques work very well. The four methods below are all highly effective, and should be considered by any and every student.

1) Place a security freeze and avoid new account fraud
Firstly, students can seriously reduce the chance of having their identity stolen by placing a security freeze on their credit report. Doing so will prevent a fraudster from being able to register a credit card in the victim’s name. This is because the credit freeze needs to be lifted in order for a new lender to be able to grab the student’s credit information. FULL POST
