„Willkommen in Absurdistan!“ ~16:06 Samstag, 8. April 2017: "Deutschlandradio Wissen" (DRadio Wissen) verweist auf seinen heute gesendeten Rundfunk-Beitrag über ein Interview einer jungen Dame, die jüngst eine Doktorarbeit (!) über die Türsteher-Szene geschrieben hat und nun die Allgemeinheit mit ein paar Sätzen an ihren vermeintlich gewichtigen, gesellschaftsrelevanten Erkenntnissen via Äther beglücken durfte ... Mein Kommentar hierzu: Diese Meldung eines deutschen staatlichen Rundfunksenders zeigt an einem Beispiel nur allzu anschaulich, für welche Nichtigkeiten in unserer abgleitenden Republik Steuergelder verantwortungslos verbraten werden, die an anderer Stelle für die Behebung Jahrzehnte währender gesellschaftlicher Mißstände dringend gebraucht würden! https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absurdistan

Taking the amino acid L-arginine and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) before surgery or afterwards seems to help reduce the recovery time. ★ Possibly effective for improving recovery after surgery. Taking L-arginine with ribonucleic acid (RNA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) before surgery or afterwards seems to help reduce the recovery time, reduce the number of infections, and improve wound healing after surgery! ★ Bladder inflammation. Taking L-arginine seems to improve symptoms, but it may take up to three months of treatment to see improvement. ★ Improving kidney function in kidney transplant patients taking cyclosporine. ★ Cramping pain and weakness in the legs associated with blocked arteries. ★★ Tags: arginine, Arginin http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arginin gefäßerweiternd: daher blutdrucksenkend via Stickstoffmonoxid (NO). Dadurch wird die Bereitschaft für thrombotische Veränderungen an Gefäßplaque-Rupturen herabgesetzt. Es wird angenommen, dass Arginin die unterdrückte Immunantwort bei schweren Verletzungen, Mangelernährung, Sepsis und nach Operationen positiv beeinflussen kann. Bei zusätzlicher Gabe wird eine verbesserte zelluläre Immunantwort, eine Abnahme verletzungsbedingter Funktionsstörungen der T-Zellen und eine verstärkte Phagozytose beobachtet. Zusätzlich wird die Ausbildung der endothelialen Dysfunktion (gestörten Gefäßfunktion) verhindert. 1998 gab es für die Erforschung des Zusammenhangs von Arginin und NO den Nobelpreis für Medizin. ★★ Bei Erwachsenen wird der Bedarf an L-Arginin durch die körpereigene Produktion oft nicht ausreichend abgedeckt. Besonders in der Wachstumsphase, durch Stress, bei diversen Krankheiten (z. B. Arteriosklerose, Bluthochdruck, erektile Dysfunktion, Gefäßerkrankungen) oder nach Unfällen übersteigt der Bedarf an Arginin die vom menschlichen Organismus produzierte Menge. Auch im Alter steigt der Bedarf an L-Arginin stark an, da der endogene Gegenspieler, das asymmetrische Dimethylarginin (ADMA) um den Faktor 4 ansteigt und damit 40-fach erhöhte Argininkonzentrationen zur Neutralisierung der gefährlichen Effekte dieses Sterblichkeitsfaktors benötigt werden. Diese Mengen können nur durch Einnahme von Arginin-Kapseln gedeckt werden. ★★ Bei einer Proteinzufuhr von etwa 70–90 g/Tag ergibt sich eine rechnerische tägliche Argininzufuhr von ca. 1–5 g/Tag. ★★ Als (semi)essentielle Aminosäure ist L-Arginin obligatorischer Bestandteil einer parenteralen Ernährung. In Elektrolyt-Konzentraten zum Zusatz zu Infusionslösungen und in peroralen Diätetika wird L-Arginin ebenfalls eingesetzt. Pharmazeutisch verwendet wird meistens das L-Arginin-Hydrochlorid. ### Arginin wird auch als Zusatz in Zahnpasta verwendet. Verglichen mit einer herkömmlichen Zahnpasta mit Fluoridzusatz wurde eine verbesserte Remineralisierung mit einer Kombination aus Arginin, Calciumcarbonat und Fluorid nachgewiesen. ★★ Arginin wird zur Supplementierung bei unzureichender Zufuhr oder erhöhtem Bedarf als diätetisches Lebensmittel für verschiedene Krankheitszustände wie erektile Dysfunktion, Arteriosklerose im Frühstadium, endotheliale Dysfunktion und Bluthochdruck vermarktet.

Lifespan extension: coffee without milk promotes health by stimulating autophagyKaffee ohne Milch ⟿ Autophagie = Selbstverdauungsprogramm, das die Zellen reinigt & entgiftet: not as programmed cell death apoptosis! Kaffee = Autophagie-Auslöser: innerhalb von 1 – 4 Stunden wurde die zelluläre Autophagie von Leber, Skelett-Muskulatur und Herz – stark angekurbelt. Der dekoffeinierte und der koffeininhaltige Kaffee ist hierbei gleich wirksam ★ What is the difference between apoptosis and autophagy? Apoptosis is programmed cell death (can be seen as a cell "suicide"). It is the process by which the cell starts a chemical reaction pathway in order to kill itself. ★ Autophagy is where the cell breaks down and destroys one of its own components. This helps maintain a balance between cellular products so not too much of a certain compound (ie. proteins) is produced. ★ http://www.nature.com/nrm/journal/v8/n9/abs/nrm2239.html ★ Autophagy (self eating) is the process of self-digestion by a cell through the action of enzymes originating within the same cell. It occurs in case of nutrient starvation (increased levels of autophagy lead to the breakdown of non-vital components and the release of nutrients, ensuring that vital processes can continue) and infection (autophagy plays a role in the destruction of some bacteria within the cell). It acts as a repair mechanism and it is also attributed as programmed death for cell. ★ While, Apoptosis (self killing) is the disintegration of cells into membrane-bound particles that are then eliminated by phagocytosis or by shedding. Apoptosis is one means by which a developing organism shapes its tissues and organs. For instance, a human fetus has webbed hands and feet early on its development. Later, apoptosis removes skin cells, revealing individual fingers and toes. Apoptosis is also committed in times of distress, for the good of the organism as a whole.

Why are we more scared of raw egg than reheated rice? Rice can contain Bacillus cereus, which is resistant to heat! But rice is also a common cause. It can contain Bacillus cereus, which is resistant to heat. "It's one that a lot of people don't know about, but you do have to be very careful with rice," says Martin. "It's not that rice itself is dangerous but after it's been cooked there are spores of bacteria that can germinate." The advice is to cool it quickly if it is likely to be eaten later. "Take the worst of the heat out but then put it in the fridge, it doesn't need to be room temperature anymore - fridges have improved," adds Martin. He also advises spreading it in shallow dishes to speed up cooling, or more simply, just cook the amount you want to eat. It's a very bad idea to eat rice that's been sitting in a buffet at room temperature after being cooked. Any reheating at home should be thorough but is only safe if the advice above has been followed.

Investors Pay to Lend Germany Money! While many euro-zone nations are struggling to obtain credit, investors are practically throwing money at Germany. The country on Monday raised almost 4 billion euros in six-month debt at a negative interest rate. In effect, investors paid Germany to be able to lend it money. The move highlights the economic imbalances in crisis-ridden Europe! Investors in Europe are so worried about the euro crisis and so desperate to find a safe haven for their cash that they decided to forego an interest rate, and even paid a premium, for the privilege of lending Germany money on Monday! http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/0,1518,808080,00.html ★ → "Erstmals haben Investoren dem deutschen Staat eine Prämie gezahlt, um ihm Geld leihen zu dürfen. Bei einer Emission von Geldmarktpapieren mit einer Laufzeit von sechs Monaten lag die Rendite unter Null. Genauer gesagt betrug die durchschnittliche Rendite minus 0,0122 Prozent. Ein solch negativer Zinssatz kommt zustande, wenn für eine Anleihe mehr bezahlt wird als die Summe aus Nennwert und Zinskupon. "Das hat es bislang noch nie gegeben", sagte ein Sprecher der Bundesfinanzagentur zu Reuters. "Die Anleger bezahlen eine gewisse Prämie dafür, dass sie dem deutschen Staat Geld leihen." Im Dezember hatte es noch einen Mini-Zins von mickrigen 0,001 Prozent gegeben." http://www.boerse.ard.de/content.jsp?go=performance&key=dokument_585318
