Staying stress free ‘key to looking young’

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Scientists from NYU have revealed that stress is the real culprit behind grey hairs.

The study, carried out on lab mice, suggest that constant worrying affects melanocyte stem cells, which produce the melanin pigment that is responsible for the colour of hair and skin, the Daily Express reported.

The examination explains that when the skin is damaged, these cells travel from their usual position, in a bulge at the base of the hair follicle, to carry out whatever repairs have to be done.

The researcher also revealed that stress causes the same migration and prevents cells from returning, thus turning hair white.

The author of the study, Dr Mayumi Ito, said that stress hormones promote melanocyte migration from hair follicles to damaged skin.

It asserted that excessive stress might mean fewer cells would be preserved within the follicle.

Sugar overload can damage heart

Monday, June 17th, 2013

A study led by researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has found that too much sugar can lead to heart failure.

A single small molecule, the glucose metabolite glucose 6-phosphate (G6P), causes stress to the heart that changes the muscle proteins and induces poor pump function leading to heart failure, according to the study.

G6P can accumulate from eating too much starch and/or sugar.

“Treatment is difficult. Physicians can give diuretics to control the fluid, and beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors to lower the stress on the heart and allow it to pump more economically,” Heinrich Taegtmeyer, M.D., D.Phil., principal investigator and professor of cardiology at the UTHealth Medical School, said.

“But we still have these terrible statistics and no new treatment for the past 20 years,” the researcher said.
