Porn addiction: Cortisol level & other health concerns

Sufficient sleep is essential to health. Research has shown that insufficient sleep which can be caused by porn addiction can lead to increase cortisol levels

Cortisol, also known more formally as hydrocortisone (INN, USAN, BAN), is a steroid hormone, more specifically a glucocorticoid, produced by the zona fasciculata of the adrenal gland.[1] It is released in response to stress and a low level of blood glucocorticoids. Its primary functions are to increase blood sugar through gluconeogenesis; suppress the immune system; and aid in fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism.[2] It also decreases bone formation. Various synthetic forms of cortisol are used to treat a variety of diseases. (Source: Wikipedia: Cortisol)

Essentially that is saying that sleep depravation caused by porn addiction can lead to suppression of the immune system and decrease bone formation. And porn addiction is now promoted by the wide availablity of porn via the pervasive Internet. All you need is a computer, mobile or otherwise, and all those porn on the Internet will be easily available to you.

These are all avoidable health hazards solvable by getting sufficient sleep, but if you are addicted to porn, for better health, we need to know how to overcome internet porn addiction.

According to a research report published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine by a Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, New York, a cream containing nanoparticles encapsulating particles of drugs is not only safer with less side effects, but also fast acting, effecting an erection within minutes as compared with 30 minutes to an hour for oral medication. The use of the Viagra cream confined the active ingredients of the drug to a small area of the body rather than circulating systematically through the body plus reaching the target area much faster.

The tests were done on rats bred to suffer erectile dysfunction and tests found the cream containing Cialis, sialorphin and nitric oxid to be effective and showed no side of side effects.

Before the Viagra cream can be prescribed for human however, further tests need to be done to ensure the treatment is safe before clinical trials with human can be carried and getting approval for general use may take 10 years or more.

New damaged heart repair treatment?

The result of a study carried out on mice and rats by the Children's Hospital Boston published int the journal Cell is giving hopes that a new way to repair damaged heart may be in the offing. The key lies in a protein called Neuregulin 1 or NRG1.

A team of Boston researchers tested the abilities of various molecules to spur cell divisions in cultured cardiomyocytes (cardiac muscle cells) and found that NRG1 produced the most significant effect. NRG1 was administered to animals which had suffered heart attacks and it was found to promote regeneration of the heart muscles, proving that adult heart cells of mice can be stimulated to reproduce itself. The researchers thus conclude that they have identified a new approach to promote myocardial regeneration.

The researchers now plan to test this new therapy in pigs which have more in common with humans than mice and rats.

While this finding point towards a possible new therapy (patients getting daily NRG1 infusions over period of weeks) for damaged hearts, researcher Dr. Bernhard Kühn cautioned that the safety of the therapy need to be tested before the study can proceed to testing in humans.

Antibodies kill cancer cells - new cancer treatment?

It has been known that antibodies can be used to tag cancer cells and mobilize the disease fighting cells of the immune system to attack and kill cancer cells. Now according to a report in the Journal of Clinical Investigations by researchers of the University of Nottingham and the University of Manchester, the antibodies it selves can attack and destroy directly cancer cells.

The antibody works as follows. It attaches to a cancer cell and trigger lysosomes (small acid-containing sacs) within the cell to bloat up and burst in the process releasing their deadly content leading to the death of the cell. According to researcher Dr. Mark Cragg, the findings throws up the tantalizing possibility of applying this knowledge of how antibodies trigger cell death to come up with new effective treatments for cancer.
