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.

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.
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.

Researchers have concluded that flu forecaster is a helpful tool in preparing people for influenza epidemic, highlighting peak cases as early as 8 weeks.
Flu predictor is extremely helpful for elderly and infants, as they have weak immune system. This information of influenza hitting a certain region can help them prepare for the worst scenarios, and taking preventive measures by focusing on sanitation. Moreover, it allows public health officials and doctors to arrange for influenza vaccines and medications beforehand. The model incorporates flu-related search data from Google Flu Trends and from the Centers for Disease Control. On a weekly basis this flu forecaster integrates the number of reported flu cases by comparing it with its own forecast.
Bentham Science Publishers is a well reputed STM industry, which has a diverse collection of eBooks and journals available on topics varying from science, medicine, drug discovery, technology and the like. One of its journals is “International Journal of Sensors, Wireless Communications and Control” which has articles related to this topic.
Alzheimer’s – a disease which is an accelerating brain disorder that damages the brain cells and ultimately destroys it. This injury leads to memory loss and brings about many changes in the functionality of the brain and cognition. A universal quest is under way to discover new treatments and even prevention of Alzheimer’s.
Current Alzheimer Research – an exceptional journal from the shelves of Bentham Science Publishers which has an impact factor, 3.676.
