Sulfur in Broccoli and other Cruciferous Vegetables May Hold the Key to Healing Genetic Diseases

Our mothers were right. Broccoli is good for us, but possibly in ways our mothers never knew. Health practitioners and fitness experts around the world have heralded the benefits of broccoli for decades. Scientists have long demonstrated the antioxidant properties of broccoli. Continue reading

The Key to Stronger Leg Muscles

As we grow older, it’s no secret that our muscles seem to lose some of their strength. This can be a little problematic when it comes to our legs. Leg muscles help to keep us on our feet and moving about in the world doing the things we like to do.

In fact, one of our most unhealthy “activities” is our lack of activity, the sedentary lifestyle of our first-world nation status, where more and more, we sit – at a desk, at a computer, in front of a television – nearly every day of the week, as opposed to engaging in any meaningful physical activities.

Nanoscale Whiskers from Sea Creatures Could Grow Human Muscle Tissue

Minute whiskers of nanoscale dimensions taken from sea creatures could hold the key to creating working human muscle tissue, University of Manchester researchers have discovered.

Scientists have found that cellulose from tunicates, commonly known as sea squirts, can influence the behaviour of skeletal muscle cells in the laboratory.

These nanostructures are several thousand times smaller than muscle cells and are the smallest physical feature found to cause cell alignment.

Alignment is important since a lot of tissue in the body,  Continue reading
