Spider bites and necrosis!

Spider bites and necrosis!

Posted Fri, 13 Mar 2015 09:37:00 GMT by JW Dowey

Many considerations should determine how we approach health issues, pests and even bites we think we have. The effects of unfamiliar bites especially may be made more obvious by this interesting study of biological control. The control is there, but it’s in the spiders hands!

Auto-Immune Deficiency Disease is very much an issue still although many, young and old, ignore it. Those who can afford to spend our health service cash on drugs survive well, but in Africa, the support for prevention or relief is almost nil.

Mosquitoes have the best malaria strategy!

Mosquitoes have the best malaria strategy!

We hate the irritation and the mess of blood parasites that attack us in the form of leeches and mosquitoes. The trouble is the leech does not infect us while the mosquito is simply the agent for the malaria parasite and many others, which it tries to resist with very useful immune responses.

Do we choose senescence or eternal youth?

Do we choose senescence or eternal youth?

Do we want to live longer? The question needs to be asked of those who have achieved great age. The science of aging is finally coming-of-age as we approach an allele that can eliminate those pesky cells that can’t stay healthy any more and move towards the organs and tissues that work even when we are very old. Life may not need to be longer, but it could be better.

Cats and dogs are our best friends. You know that saying about friends and enemies, though. We need to be aware of any risks, otherwise our Toxoplasma infection rate will rise from the 30% already recognised!

Whale genes needed for age research

Whale genes needed for age research

This time, we don’t need to hunt them down, although researchers found it almost impossible to find bowheads. They number 24,000 approximately, hidden beneath the ice and distant shores of uninhabited areas, but will prove useful as the longest-lived mammal. Their genes provide something we couldn’t evolve for ourselves- a healthy life!
