Medicine can mimic exercise benefits to health

Medicine can mimic exercise benefits to health

Scientists at Deakin University in Australia have developed a drug capable of mimicking one of the most important effects of physical activities on the body. Researchers with obese rats showed that those who received the drug showed no signs of cardiovascular disease. Researchers began investigations nearly a decade ago with the specific goal of replicating the effects of exercise. Initially, they examined how genes control lipid metabolism during exercise, a process that occurs in the liver, and the lipids from the food intake and the organic reserve.

The team discovered the protein that kept the genes off while the person did not practice exercises, so they were able to create a drug capable of activating genes to burn fat.

Tests have shown that the drug was effective in preventing heart disease in obese rats. Scientists are reshaping the structure of the drug so it can be used by humans and believe the novelty may be available in up to 10 years.

Although the drug has health benefits for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes, the researchers warn that it is not able to replicate all the benefits of exercise.

The mice that received the drug did not lose weight. "Although it increases energy expenditure and fat burning, rats treated with the drug also ate a little more, which means they remained stable weight," says McGee, a professor of medical biology at Deakin University. > By 2015, scientists at the University of Sydney began to develop a drug that could mimic the effects of exercise altogether. The goal is not to contribute to physical inactivity, but to help seniors or people who can not do physical exercise to lead a healthier life.

According to a specialist, men need to follow the example of women and start, at an early age, to care about health and do more visits to doctors. Medical consultation - Photo Getty Images Before 20 According to the specialist, before the age of 20, men do not need to stay very worried about specific tests, since more serious diseases are more difficult to appear at that age.

Heart murmur calls for redoubled care with bacterial infections

Heart murmur calls for redoubled care with bacterial infections

Breath is the name of a noise that can be heard ("auscultated" in technical terms) on the physical examination. The murmur in the heart is the result of blood passing through a smaller hole than it should. It sounds like the sound of someone blowing in your ear (the narrow place that generates the noise is the ear canal) or a crack in the open window.
