The human body consists of about 220 different cell types and an estimated 10-100 trillion Cells. This incredibly high number of cells forms skin, hair, muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels and the various organs and tissues.
In order for our body to function well, need to coordinate operations in all these cells and controlled. For this, the human nervous system and the endocrine system responsible. While the nervous system’s “instructions” to the cells in the form of electrical signals (nerve impulses) provides, use the hormone system messengers, called hormones for instructions “continue to lead.”
Hormones are distributed via the blood in the body and control vital functions such as circulation, respiration, metabolism, nutrition, body temperature and our salt and water balance. They also regulate growth, development of man or woman, and our reproduction. Hormones are also responsible for how we feel and how we behave towards our environment. Read the rest of this entry »
As a cancer arises
The term “cancer” is not synonymous with a specific disease, because there are over a hundred different cancer types. This result, however, apparently by similar processes: the uncontrolled growth of diseased cells. The disease starts in one of about 30 trillion cells in the body that are constantly renewed.
The body is changing constantly. There is no stop in the regeneration and growth of cells: This is evident especially in hair and nails. This normal continuous growth is strictly controlled so that it does not lead to excessive cell proliferation. The “inner program” for the growth of the cell is located on the cell’s own DNA (or undocumented Deoxyribonucleic), the carrier of genetic information.
The single cell, however, live in isolation: Constantly bouncing outside influences on them can. Meanwhile, a variety of risk factors known to trigger a cancer of the:
Toxins in tobacco smoke
Certain fungi in food
Some viral infections
Some chemicals Read the rest of this entry »
WHAT IS THE BLOOD GROUP?
Blood type is each of the various types has been classified in the blood of individuals with regard to the compatibility of the red cells and serum of another individual donating blood with red cells and serum of another individual who receives it. The determination of these groups, which initially limited to the section of donors and recipients for blood transfusion been extended to include the determination of paternity and identification in criminology.
These groups are four, according to the classification made by Landsteiner, universal classification and are known today: O, A, B, AB. They are characterized by different combinations of two existing agglutinates in red blood cells and two agglutinins contained in the serum. Read the rest of this entry »

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the airways between the trachea and lungs (bronchial tubes). The wall of these tubes produces large amounts of mucus, triggering a persistent cough. In North America, about one in 20 suffers from chronic bronchitis. Women are more at risk than men.
There are two types of bronchitis:
Acute bronchitis comes on rapidly, usually after a virus has invaded the upper respiratory tract. There are also some cases of bacterial infection. The virus most likely to trigger acute bronchitis are those that cause influenza (flu) and colds. The viruses of measles and whooping cough can also cause acute bronchitis. In these cases, the condition is called acute infectious bronchitis. It is called acute irritative bronchitis when it is caused by inhaling dust, fumes or vapors. Read the rest of this entry »
