“Effective Relief of Schizophrenia Symptoms Using Vitamins.”

The research studies have shown that the addition of dietary supplements of vitamin B12 and folate can result into the treatment of core symptoms of patients of Schizophrenia. This research has been applied to more than 100 affected patients and produced positive results.

The symptoms of schizophrenia are complex, and antipsychotic medications provide no relief for some of the most disabling parts of the illness. These include negative symptoms, which can be particularly devastating.”

“Our finding that folate plus vitamin B12 supplementation can improve negative symptoms opens a new potential avenue for treatment of schizophrenia. Because treatment effects differed based on which genetic variants were present in each participant, the results also support a personalized medical approach to treating schizophrenia.”

(Joshua Roffman, Massachusetts General Hospital- Department of Psychiatry).

The Music to your Cancer

One of the worst diseases of the modern era is cancer. It is a painful illness and its treatment is equally dire. The modern day presents us with many problems but science and researchers tend to find out methods to rectify the diseases. One of the latest researches observed positive response when experimented with music therapy.

The type of music therapy examined in this study – called Therapeutic Music Video – is designed to help patients reflect on their experiences. This research was carried out with a control group from the ages of eleven to twenty-four, by Indiana University. This research on music therapy confirms that adolescents and young cancer patients who participated in the music therapy program increased their ability to cope with the disease as music boosted their resilience. Music therapy involves song lyric writing, sound recordings, producing videos, storyboarding, collecting images for the video etc.
The role of a music therapist was to offer support and structure, by asking them to reflect on their life’s experiences and tap into their priorities including; family, relationships and spirituality.
Therapeutic music video group reported to have comparatively better ‘Courageous coping’ skills, better socializing abilities and family-environment, even after 100 days of stem cell transplant treatment.
Cancer patients of this age go through a tough time and a high risk treatment, so whatever soothes their mind should not only be encouraged by the doctors; but should also be adopted by the patients. But even when a life ends too early, music therapy can be invaluable to a parent or family members.

Heavy Drinking Causes Memory Loss!!

Drinking may be the reason for an accelerated memory loss and mental decay, according to a new study. Premature Old age may also be caused due to heavy drinking earlier.

Bentham Science e-book

Heavy drinking in mid-life is associated with faster cognitive declines for men, a new study suggests. However, lighter drinking didn’t appear to accelerate mental decline. Men who consume more than two alcoholic drinks per day during their middle age may speed up the process of memory loss and premature old age up to six years. For women, no clear result was derived.

Research has deduced that middle-aged men are at a greater risk of mental decay, because they are into heavy drinking for many years.  They have been drinking all their lives, which makes their brain vulnerable to memory loss.

5.000 civil servants were tested on this theory, the decline was equal to two extra years of aging for a combined  measure of mental capabilities like reasoning, and six years of memory relevant product/services. The heavy drinkers were compared to those men who drank moderately or refrained from it.

Undoubelty, alcohol consumption affects the brain, but the study has focused on an age range that has never been paid much emphasis on by the alcohol researchers. Research has always  focused more on elderly or college students.

Bentham Science Publishers is one of the leading STM publishing companies of the industry. It publishes more than 116 online and print journals and more than 300 eBooks.

Recent advances in Nanotechnology:

Nanotechnology is the understanding, management and control of matter with dimensions measuring from 1 to 100 nanometers. It can sometimes be written as “Nanotech”.

Nanotechnology encompasses engineering, science and technology with the amalgamation of measuring, modeling, imaging and manipulation matter at nanoscale.

On the basis of classification by size, nanotechnology is very extensive in nature, comprising of various other fields of science such as molecular biology, organic chemistry, semi-conductor physics, surface science, micro fabrication etc.

The name of Bentham Science is highly remarkable within the STM Publication industry. They have a lot of journals based on nanotechnology. To view all these Bentham Journals visit:

The advancement of distinctive nanoscale structures has the prospective of revolutionizing industry including medicine, electronics and consumer products.

“Every industry that involves manufactured items will be impacted by nanotechnology research. Everything can be made in some way better-stronger, lighter, cheaper, easier to recycle-if it`s engineered and manufactured at the nanometer scale.”

(Stan Williams, Director of Quantum Science Research, HP Labs)

The progress of nanotechnology is still in the research stage but some engineered nanomaterials have been fabricated which are used in commercial applications now-a-days.

Some of the examples of products which are developed using nanotechnology include cosmetics, stain-free mattresses and clothes, bumpers and catalytic converters on cars, polymer films used for the display of digital cameras, cell phones, laptops etc.

The Effects of Tea on Human Health

The latest studies have suggested that green tea plays an essential role in putting off various types of cancer. The possible health consequences of consumption of tea have been supported and recommended by a number of studies. The green tea contains element that are anti-oxidants such as polyphenol. It improves stamina during work out through improvised fat metabolism. Individuals should always consult a doctor before utilizing excess tea as unnecessary intake can lead to other health issues because of the strong binding activities of polyphenols and caffeine.

Black tea contains oxalate which can cause kidney stones, if it is consumed in excessive amount. A study in 2012 have suggested that individuals who consume excessive amount of black tea have increased chances of getting prostate cancer by 50%. Moreover, the excess consumption of hot beverages can lead to esophageal cancer.

Brain Covers Both The Side Of The Brain, Helpful In Treating Head Injuries

A new study suggests that brain, stroke, head injuries, speech and communication disorders could be treated, as brain covers both the sides of the brain. This study debunk the belief that only one side o the brain is used for this task.

The findings improve understanding of the process of speech generation in the brain which could lead to new techniques to treat speech related disorders.

Previous researches on speech relied on studies that were measuring brain activities indirectly. This new study however examined the relation between speech and brain activity directly. Participants of this study had a direct and specialized electrodes implanted inside and on the surface of the brain.

Researchers focused on parts of the brain during speech. The participants were asked to repeat non-words like ‘kig’ and ‘pob’. Using non-words trigger brain activities enabled by the researchers to segregate speech from language.

The results indicated activity in both the sides of the brain for speech. With this great insight between the connection between brain and speech, we can work for the development of new and advanced ways to support those trying to regain the ability to speak after a stroke or head injury.

Bentham Science Publishers is a recognized name in the STM industry, having journals and eBooks on various genres including; natural science, information technology, medicine etc. Bentham Science Publishers has an impact factor journal named “Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering” which can help researchers for further investigation on the subject.
