    WE'RE often encouraged to eat at least five portions of fruits and vegetables a day if we want to keep the doctor away.  However, experts have discovered one particular fruit which could help reduce your chances of developing dementia in later life.  1Grapes contain antioxidants that reduce inflammation which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancerCredit: Getty The series of studies, published in journal Foods, all found that eating grapes can have a positive impact on your health – especially for those who eat high fat Western diets.  Grapes are known to be rich in chemicals that boost gut bacteria and lower cholesterol.  They also contain high levels of antioxidants which can reduce the risk of many diseases and cancers. Antioxidants work by keeping your body safe from free radicals in the body, such an inflammation or outside the body such as pollution, UV exposure, and cigarette smoke.

    A new technology can keep organ cells alive for hours after the rest of the body dies in a breakthrough that experts hope can quell the dire need for more transplantable hearts, kidneys and livers. Researchers at Yale University developed 'OrganEx' - an offshoot of the breakthrough 'BrainEx' technology designed by scientists at the New Haven, Connecticut school in 2019. The device delivers fluid containing compounds that boost cellular health and prevent inflammation into the organs - keeping them alive for up to six hours after the rest of the body dies. This research was performed on pigs, but the team is hopeful that their experimental process will be effective on human organs as well. If so, it could significantly boost the supply of available hearts, kidneys and livers for transplant - and even help extend the lives of some people stuck on the waiting list. With more than 105,000 Americans waiting for an organ transplant - and 17 dying each day - researchers are hoping these findings can help improve and extend the lives of millions down the line....
    Shaped like a boomerang and coming in at a mere three pounds, your liver works hard for you every day, possibly more than you could imagine. It’s the second-largest organ in your body and yet, probably not one you give much thought to until something goes wrong. Your liver keeps things going, and is often referred to as the gatekeeper of your body. Like a silent housekeeper, it’s always working around the clock, cleaning up whatever goes in, and assisting with what goes out. Just like you mop up a mess on your kitchen floor, your liver does somewhat of the same thing with all the toxins from our food supply and the environment. It also performs everyday functions that you might not be aware of, and protects you from a number of nasty health conditions when you care for it properly. Whatever you put in your body, your liver has to deal with and process, on top of other everyday functions, such as: use carbs, protein, and fats to process into energy, assist in digestion, use 30 percent of...
    Drinking what most might consider to be a moderate amount of alcohol could be harming your health and mental wellbeing, experts have found. New guidelines released by the Australian Drug and Alcohol Foundation advise both men and women to have no more than 10 standard drinks per week and no more than four standard drinks on any one day. Consuming more than the recommended amount has been linked to myriad health issues including cancer, heart and liver disease, Alzheimer's, weight gain and premature ageing, as well as brain fog, anxiety, and depression. But researchers have warned a standard drink might be less than you think, with bottles of beer and glasses of wine often coming in well over the threshold.

    Space fairing heroes living on the moon and Mars could one day receive transplants with 3D-printed human tissue. Scientist from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina constructed a cube-shaped tissue capable of functioning for 30 days in the lab. The breakthrough was part of NASA’s Vascular Tissue Challenge, a competition to create thick, vascularized human organ tissue in an in-vitro environment, and the group won first and second place. The team created gel-like molds with 'chambers' to help cells form into tissue by allowing them to obtain enough oxygen and nutrients to survive an entire month.  Not only can 3D-printed tissue treat astronauts, but it may also be used in patients on Earth who are waiting for an organ transplant.

    Bitter foods sure don’t sound very appetizing, do they? They certainly aren’t something you probably think you’re craving, however, you might be surprised to know that your body actually does crave bitter foods and show you in small ways you just haven’t realized (yet). Bitter foods help bring balance to the overly sweet foods we all love so much (and likely eat a little too much of).  They can also help offset a general feeling of sluggishness, addiction to sweets, and even possibly hormonal issues or cholesterol problems. Bitter foods such as leafy greens, cacao, herbs, and bitter melon all contain liver-boosting nutrients such as sulfur, along with fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). These are necessary for the body to be able to produce bile, which is needed for optimal digestion and to help the liver work at a prime level. For your liver to work its best to filter out the bad stuff, it needs to produce bile. Think of it like a muscle; if it’s not being worked, it’s not giving you many (if any) benefits. ...

    Nutritionists have revealed the ways quitting alcohol for 31 days can improve your health - and the major change that begins just one hour into abstinence. Each year countless Australians temporarily give up drinking for 'Dry January' to restore themselves after the overindulgence of the festive season.

Dietitians and fitness coaches promise even short periods without alcohol will improve memory, mental clarity and sleep, as well as promoting weight loss and reducing pressure on the liver which starts to cleanse itself just one hour after your last drink.
