"Jake Weary"

Gambar
Jake Weary (born Jacob Weary on February 14, 1990) is an American actor, singer and musician. He is known for his famous speaking role Kevin Kunt, in the Fred series.

After an initial guest role on his mother Kim Zimmer's show, Guiding Light in 2002, he was cast as Luke Snyder on the television soap opera As the World Turns.

Weary's departure from As the World Turns was the cause of some controversy, as the timing coincided with a change in course for the character of Luke, who would be revealed to be gay. Initially, news reports suggested that Weary or Zimmer may have been uncomfortable with the story. Zimmer subsequently told the press that Weary's departure was related to his age (at the time, he was 15) and that such a storyline would require a much larger time commitment than originally agreed to. Weary wanted to be able to focus on school and make occasional appearances.

Weary did go on to appear in episodes of two of the Law & Order franchise shows, Criminal In…

"Bau Badan Dapat Menunjukkan Penyakit"

Gambar
Bukti-bukti anekdotal dan ilmiah menunjukkan bahwa penyakit memiliki bau tertentu. Penderita diabetes, misalnya, kadang-kadang memiliki napas yang berbau seperti apel busuk atau aseton.

Mats Olsson, dkk dari Karolinska Institutet di Swedia bahkan membuktikan bahwa manusia dapat mencium bau penyakit pada seseorang yang sistem kekebalannya sangat aktif hanya dalam beberapa jam setelah terpapar racun. Untuk membuktikannya, Olsson dan timnya merekrut delapan orang sehat untuk disuntik dengan lipopolisakarida (LPS) yaitu racun yang dikenal meningkatkan respon imun atau larutan garam (sebagai pembanding). Para relawan mengenakan t-shirt ketat untuk menyerap keringat selama 4 jam berikutnya. Para relawan yang disuntik dengan LPS menghasilkan respon imun yang nyata, sebagaimana dibuktikan oleh peningkatan suhu tubuh dan kadar sitokin (molekul sistem kekebalan).



Sebuah kelompok terpisah yang terdiri dari 40 peserta diminta untuk mencium sampel keringat. Secara keseluruhan, mereka menilai t-sh…

"Konsumsi Natrium Tinggi Penyebab 1 Dari 10 Kematian Kardiovaskuler Global"

Gambar
Para peneliti memperkirakan bahwa 1 dari 10 kematian kardiovaskuler setiap tahun disebabkan oleh asupan natrium di atas yang direkomendasikan WHO yaitu 2 gram per hari. Tim peneliti yang dipimpin oleh Dr Dariush Mozaffarian dari Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy di Tufts University di Medford, MA, baru-baru ini menerbitkan temuan mereka tersebut di The New England Journal of Medicine.

Natrium adalah unsur yang secara alami terdapat pada sebagian besar makanan seperti daging, susu, ikan dan seledri. Oleh karena itu penambahan garam dalam jumlah tinggi dalam masakan menyebabkan konsumsi natrium terlalu banyak. Hal itu dapat meningkatkan tekanan darah, padahal hipertensi adalah faktor risiko utama untuk penyakit kardiovaskuler seperti penyakit jantung dan stroke.



“Namun efek dari asupan natrium berlebih pada penyakit kardiovaskuler secara global menurut usia, jenis kelamin dan etnis belum sepenuhnya diketahui,” kata Dr Mozaffarian.

Untuk mendapatkan pemahaman yang lebih ba…

"Tukang Cukur"

Gambar
Pada suatu hari Pak Haji dan tukang cukur berjalan melalui daerah kumuh disebuah kota. Tukang cukur berkata kepada Pak Haji, "Lihat, inilah sebabnya saya tidak dapat percaya pada Tuhan yang katanya Maha Pengasih lagi Maha Penyayang. Jika Tuhan itu baik sebagaimana yang engkau katakan, Ia tidak akan membiarkan semua kemiskinan, penyakit, dan kekumuhan ini. Ia tidak akan membiarkan orang-orang ini terperangkap ketagihan obat dan semua kebiasaan yang merusak watak. Tidak, saya tidak dapat percaya ada Tuhan yang mengijinkan semua ini terjadi."



Pak Haji itu diam saja sampai ketika mereka bertemu dengan seseorang yang benar-benar jorok dan bau. Rambutnya panjang dan janggutnya seperti tak tersentuh pisau cukur cukup lama. Pak Haji berkata, "Anda tidak bisa menjadi seorang tukang cukur yang baik kalau anda membiarkan orang seperti dia hidup tanpa rambut dan janggut yang tak terurus." Merasa tersinggung, tukang cukur itu menjawab:"Mengapa salahkan aku atas keadaan or…
