Turmeric could Be The World’s Most Important Herb.600 reasons why.PLEASE SHARE.

We found a simply astonishing page all about Turmeric and had to share! I honestly think it is one of the best pages about a herb I have ever seen (and I’ve seen a fair number!) The link is after our commentary.

There are several things that are amazing about the page we discovered. First – of course – the fact that there is scientific research to support the notion that turmeric may be beneficial for a staggering 600+ conditions. It is one of the world’s most studied items for medicinal potential, with over 4000 scientific studies being recorded overall.

Then there is the fact that the mighty turmeric has been in use for over 6000 years, with an incredible safety record. Note also, the effects of turmeric have been found by scientists to be greatly enhanced when it is taken in combination with black pepper (see our report here – Substance In Black Pepper Increases Bioavailability Of Beneficial Turmeric Compounds by 2000% )

Even more amazing is the way the article weaves a crystal-clear narrative that exposes the farce behind the fact that the modern medical world will perhaps never approve turmeric “officially” for medical use. It explains clearly that “proof” is effectively only purchased by those with very deep pockets (802 million dollars on average is the cost for obtaining a new drug approval). [1] The situation is a complete joke. Turmeric is clearly and obviously one of the most benign and beneficial things in the known universe.

But most amazing of all, to me, was the comment from the man who states calmly that he is one of the world’s longest survivors of the kidney transplant operation (34 years since the op, the world record is 40 years) and he takes capsules of turmeric (and other herbs) daily. Truly inspiring stuff.

The original article is fantastic, electrifying even – and we encourage you to share this article  far and wide. Here’s the link:

Squirtable surgical glue seals wounds in 60 seconds

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Once squirted into the wound,  the MeTro glue is said to behave much like the silicone sealants used around bathroom tiles.Gives time to heal the wound.Maybe can be used for fixing loose healthy teeth in your jawbone.

Advanced surgical glues that seal wounds faster could mean big things when it comes to medical care, with shorter recovery times and fewer complications just a couple of potential advantages. A new material is showing particular promise in this regard, with the ability to be squirted directly into a wound, seal it in 60 seconds and dissolve thereafter.

The researchers behind the surgical glue, which is called MeTro, say that it could replace staples and sutures used by doctors to seal up wounds, but its benefits don’t stop there. Because it is so fast-acting, it could be used at emergency sites, such as a car accident or a war zone, with the scientists likening its behavior once squirted into the wound to silicone sealants used around bathroom tiles.

“The beauty of the MeTro formulation is that, as soon as it comes in contact with tissue surfaces, it solidifies into a gel-like phase without running away,” said Assistant Professor Nasim Annabi from Northeastern University, who worked with other researchers in the US and Australia’s University of Sydney in developing MeTro.

The gel-like glue mixes natural, highly elastic proteins with light-sensitive molecules that enable it to set in 60 seconds when exposed to UV light. This UV-treatment cures the glue and allows it to form tight bonds with structures on the surface of the tissue, which maintains its elasticity. Also included is a degrading enzyme that can be manipulated to determine how long the glue lasts in the wound, ranging from hours to months, depending on the time it needs to heal.

Because of the glue’s high elasticity, it could be suitable for treating wounds in tissues that expand and relax and are therefore at risk of re-opening, like the lungs or heart. The team says it could also prove valuable in treating internal wounds in places where bodily fluids ruin the effectiveness of more conventional sealants.

Annabi was the lead author of the new study putting MeTro through its paces, where the team quickly and successfully closed wounds in rodent arteries and lungs, along with the lungs of pigs. Buoyed by the results, he and the team are now shifting their focus towards human trials.

“MeTro seems to remain stable over the period that wounds need to heal in demanding mechanical conditions and later it degrades without any signs of toxicity, it checks off all the boxes of a highly versatile and efficient surgical sealant with potential also beyond pulmonary and vascular suture and staple-less applications,” says Harvard Medical School Professor Ali Khademhosseini, who helped develop MeTro.

The team has published their results in the journal Science Translational Medicine, while the video below provides an overview of how MeTro works.
