Schizophrenia can be caused by germs in the throat.

Disputes about the causes and causes of schizophrenia do not subside. Scientists are inclined to believe that this mental illness causes a whole combination of factors. Recent studies have shown that bacteria living on the throat mucosa may increase the risk of developing schizophrenia, as well as vitamin deficiency – in particular, a lack of methylated form of vitamin B12.
The cause of schizophrenia is still not fully understood.
There is much debate about the causes of schizophrenia. As possible prerequisites for the development of the disease, scientists call a set of psychological, hereditary and biochemical causes. Recently, doctors have abandoned the idea of ​​establishing the one and only reason for this mental illness and are rather considering a set of factors that make a person more predisposed to it.

Recent studies suggest that vitamin deficiency, as well as bacteria, viruses and fungi that live in the human throat may be responsible for the biochemical component of schizophrenia. Continue reading

Eternal dispute – sugar or honey?

Known sweeteners are honey and sugar. They are compared, determining which product is better. Sweet additives have common characteristics and are significantly different. What is more useful: honey or sugar? Each product has advantages and disadvantages. Let us examine what is common and different between them.

Honey and sugar are carbohydrates. Both have two sugars in their composition – glucose and fructose. The difference is in quantity. Honey contains 40% fructose and 30% glucose. In sugar – 50% fructose and glucose.

Glycemic index. This is a relative measure of the effect of carbohydrates in foods on changes in blood glucose. In sugar, it is higher, so its level rises faster when consumed.

Fatigue season: why spring is not enough strength

Surprisingly, the fact is that with the advent of spring, many people begin to experience inexplicable fatigue. It would seem that the long-awaited heat and the sun should help increase activity, but in fact it often happens the other way around – it is spring that becomes a provoking factor for loss of strength or asthenic syndrome.

Asthenia, or asthenic syndrome, is a painful condition characterized by general weakness, increased nervous excitability, mood swings, and severe fatigue even when doing the usual work. The diagnosis of asthenia is established by a combination of symptoms, but the main criterion is that fatigue does not go away after rest.

Why does asthenia occur?
Given the modern exhausting rhythm of life, we can recognize that no one is safe from asthenia. Excessive stress at work, nervous strain, improperly organized work and rest, are just some of the reasons for the development of asthenic syndrome. In the spring, asthenia is more common, firstly, due to the lack of vitamins accumulating over the winter, and secondly, due to frequent seasonal colds, which drag a plume of post-infection weakness. In addition, the change of seasons is to some extent a stress for the body, to which it also reacts with a breakdown. Continue reading
