Coffee consumption linked to Alzheimer’s disease, says study July 30, 2015 18:22

Coffee has many health benefits. But increase consumption overtime may increase risk of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and dementia, says new research. These findings were published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.The researchers from University of Bari Aldo Moro, Bari, Italy examined 1,445 individuals recruited from 5,632 subjects, aged 65-84 year old, from the Italian Longitudinal Study on Ageing (ILSA), a population-based sample from eight Italian municipalities. The study found that cognitively normal older individuals who modified their habits by increasing with time their amount of coffee consumption ( more than a cup of coffee per day) had about two times higher rate of MCI compared to those with reduced habits (less than a cup of coffee per day). They also had about one and a half time higher rate of MCI in comparison with those with constant habits (neither more nor less than one cup of coffee per day).The researchers also showed that both rare and higher consumption of coffee (more than 2 cups per day) were associated with higher risk of the incidence of MCI.

Huge Ocean may be hidden underneath, Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography research says July 30, 2015 17:54

According to a breakthrough discovery by Chinese scientists, there could be an “ocean” hidden under one of the driest areas on the earth. The amount of salt water found beneath the Tarim basin in northwestern Xinjiang province might be equivalent to 10 times the water in all five Great Lakes in the North America.“This is a terrifying amount of water,” said professor Li Yan, who led the study at the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography in Urumqi, the Xinjiang capital. “Never before have people dared to imagine so much water under the sand. Our definition of desert may have to change,” he said.Around 10 years ago during the course of research, Li’s team found that large amounts of carbondioxide are disappearing in Tarim, with no explanation over where it could be going.Scientists had suspected that the melt water from high mountains nearby might had sipped beneath the basin, but the exact amount of water reserves available remains unknown. Exact estimates on this are difficult, because surface water in the region, such as seasonal rivers and lakes appear at random times in inconsistent locations, making direct measurements impossible.Li’s team stumbled on the discovery accidently. “We were after carbon, not water,” he said. Greenhouse gas carbondioxide can be absorbed in the certain regions known as "carbon sinks", such as forests and oceans. Locating these sinks will help the scientists to better understand climate change.They have found that under the Tarim desert, over a depth stretching thousands of metres, there is an enormous amount of saline water full of carbon dioxide. “Our estimate is a conservative figure. The actual amount could be larger,” Li said.“CCS [carbon capture and storage] is a 21st century idea, but our ancestors may have been doing it unconsciously for thousands of years," he said. Li emphasised that the "ocean" under Tarim would not be much immediate use of Xinjiang's economic development. “It’s like a can of coke. If it is opened all the greenhouse gas will escape into the atmosphere,” he said.By Premji

Ultra violet light kills pathogens in fruits, finds study July 30, 2015 17:27

Simple and inexpensive Ultraviolet rays can kill food borne pathogens on the surface of fruits, according to a study performed by Washington State University food safety specialists. "UVC radiation is present in sunlight. It has germicidal properties and can be effective against bacteria, mould and viruses. However, it is completely absorbed by the ozone layer and earth's atmosphere," said Shyam Sablani, lead researcher and food safety specialist.After learning from organic farmers and food processors about a lack of sanitising options, Sablani and his colleagues decided to looked into alternatives and decided to explore Ultraviolet C (UVC) light. They found that UVC light, which cannot penetrate opaque, solid objects, can be effective in sanitizing surfaces. Sablani and his colleagues exposed apples, pears, strawberries, raspberries and cantaloupe to different doses of UVC to determine how effective the pathogen-killing light was against a mix of strains of E coli and listeria.They found that the light can inactivate up to 99.9 per cent of pathogens on apples and pears. However, listeria was more UVC resistant than E coli. The study was published in the International Journal of Food Microbiology.By Lizitha
