NANOROBOTS – THE FUTURE OF MEDICINE

Nanorobots are nanodevices that will be used for the purpose of maintaining and human body against pathogens. They will have a diameter of about 0.5 to 3 microns. The powering of the nanorobots can be done by metabolizing local glucose and oxygen for energy. Communication with the device can be achieved by broadcast-type acoustic signaling.

A navigational network may be installed in the body, with station keeping navigational elements providing high positional accuracy to all passing nanorobots that interrogate them, wanting to know their location.

This will enable the physician to keep track of the various devices in the body.

Used for

Elimination of bacterial infection

Nanorobots would function similarly to the white blood cells in our bodies, but they are designed to be much faster at destroying bacteria. This type of nanorobots should be able to eliminate bacterial infections in a patient within minutes, as opposed to the weeks required for antibiotics to take effect.

Surgery for cellular level (removing individual diseased cells)

Nanorobots has multiple functions of imaging, manipulation, characterizing mechanical properties, and tracking. In addition, the technique of tip functionalization allows the nano robot the ability for precisely delivering a drug locally. Therefore, the nano robot can be used for conducting complicated nano surgery on living samples, such as cells and bacteria.

Lengthening of human lifespan

Significant lengthening of the human lifespan by repairing cellular level conditions that cause the body to age

For curing skin diseases using a cream containing Nanorobots

To cure skin diseases, a cream containing nanorobots may be used. It could remove the right amount of dead skin, remove excess oils, add missing oils, apply the right amounts of natural moisturizing compounds, and even achieve the elusive goal of ‘deep pore cleaning’ by actually reaching down into pores and cleaning them out. The cream could be a smart material with smooth-on, peel-off convenience.

For dental health

A mouthwash full of smart nanomachines could identify and destroy pathogenic bacteria while allowing the harmless flora of the mouth to flourish in a healthy ecosystem. Further, the devices would identify particles of food, plaque, or tartar, and lift them from teeth to be rinsed away. Being suspended in liquid and able to swim about, devices would be able to reach surfaces beyond reach of toothbrush bristles or the fibres of floss. As short-lifetime medical nanodevices, they could be built to last only a few minutes in the body before falling apart into materials of the sort found in foods (such as fibre).

Immune Enhancer       

Medical nanodevices could augment the immune system by finding and disabling unwanted bacteria and viruses. When an invader is identified, it can be punctured, letting its contents spill out and ending its effectiveness. If the contents were known to be hazardous by themselves, then the immune machine could hold on to it long enough to dismantle it more completely.

Cures heart Problems very easily

Devices working in the bloodstream could nibble away at arteriosclerotic deposits, widening the affected blood vessels. Cell herding devices could restore artery walls and artery linings to health, by ensuring that the right cells and supporting structures are in the right places. This would prevent most heart attacks.

DNA Repair

Nanorobots would be able to repair damaged DNA and allow our cells to function correctly. These little guys could be built to perform surgical procedures more precisely. By working at the cellular level, such nanorobots could prevent much of the damage caused by the comparatively clumsy scalpel.

Medical Benefits of Prunes

Prunes are dried plums. They are rich in fiber and phytochemicals and cholesterol-free. Prunes also give important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals, including retinol, iron and potassium. When you eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, you will lower your risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Health Benefits:

Heart Disease

The soluble fiber in prunes binds to “bad” LDL cholesterol particles in the intestine, preventing them from entering the bloodstream and carrying them out of the body as waste. Excess LDL cholesterol may clog your coronary arteries, which can put you at risk for heart attack and stroke. The cholesterol-lowering effects of prunes reduce the risk of cardiac events.

Diabetes

The consumption of low-glycemic index foods, such as prunes, appears to improve overall blood glucose control in people with diabetes. Soluble fiber in prunes pulls in water to form a gel in the intestine. This gel-like substance slows digestion and absorption so the glucose in food enters the bloodstream more slowly. This causes a slow and steady rise in blood sugar, explains M. Stacewicz-Sapuntzakis, a professor of human nutrition and dietetics at the University of Illinois.

Blood Pressure

Potassium may protect you against developing hypertension, according to the American Dietetic Association. It maintains normal blood pressure by regulating fluid and electrolyte balance. Doctors often advise people trying to control hypertension to consume foods high in potassium. Prunes are rich in potassium, thought to have blood pressure lowering properties. They offer approximately 637 mg of potassium per half cup.

Constipation

Constipation is infrequent or uncomfortable bowel movements. Prunes contain high amounts of soluble fiber. They act as natural laxatives that soften the stool and promote its movement through the intestines. Drink plenty of liquids to reap the benefits of fiber.

Intestinal Protection

Prunes are insoluble fiber that provides food for the “friendly” bacteria in the large intestine. When these bacteria ferment prunes as insoluble fiber, they produce a short-chain fatty acid called butyric acid, which serves as the primary fuel for the cells of the large intestine and helps to maintain a healthy colon. These helpful bacteria also create two other short-chain fatty acids, propionic and acetic acid, which are used as fuel for the cells of the liver and muscles.

Aging

Prunes are rich in antioxidants and can help your body to slow down the process. Prunes have a top position in the Oxygen Radical Absorbency Scale (ORAC).When the oxidation process takes place in the cells, free radicals are released. These radicals, if not removed then cause serious damage to the cells of the body. It will eventually result in premature aging. But, the antioxidants in prunes and prune juice prevent this by neutralizing the free radicals.
Vitamin A has been proven to be very effective in slowing down the aging process. Prunes are rich in nutrient that promotes the production of collagen in the body. Increased amount of collagen in the skin prevents the appearance of wrinkles.

Anemia

One of the major health benefits of prunes is its ability to prevent anemia. Decrease in the level of hemoglobin in blood can lead anemia. The reduction of hemoglobin level is mainly due to the deficiency of iron which is necessary for its production. It can cause many serious health conditions including anemia. Prunes are good source of iron which can be used as a natural remedy for treating anemia.

Diabetes

The soluble fiber present in prunes is necessary to maintain a healthy digestive system. Apart from that, they also delay the absorption of glucose in the intestines, thereby preventing an increase in level of blood sugar. It is also capable of making you more sensitive to insulin. Therefore, it can be used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes effectively.

Osteoporosis

The dried plums were able to reverse osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Those women were asked to eat 100 grams of dried plums per day had improved bone formation markers after only three months, compared to a control group who were eating 75 grams of dried apples. These health benefits of prunes may be linked to their high concentration of the trace element boron which is postulated to play a role in prevention of osteoporosis and osteopenia.

PERSON WHOM MAY NOT CONSUME PRUNES 

Bloating and Gas

Consuming large amounts of prunes leads to gastrointestinal effects, such as bloating and gas in your body.

Laxative Dependency

The potent laxative properties present in prunes can potentially work too well. Eating prunes every day for long periods of time can lead to chronic diarrhea. Similar to stimulant laxatives such as Ex-Lax, long-term use of prunes can cause your digestive system to become dependent on prunes for normal bowel movements. If your digestive tract becomes dependent on laxatives, when you stop taking them you may experience temporary withdrawal symptoms, including constipation, weight gain and fluid retention.

Pink eye:

White-of-the-eye (sclera) is pink or light-red indicates Conjunctivitis (eye infection)

Grey or milky-white ring:

Colored ring on the cornea, surrounding the iris indicates High cholesterol and triglycerides, Increased heart attack and stroke risk.

Unable to close eye or control tears:

Often one side of the face is weak and droops indicates Bell’s palsy (facial paralysis due to dysfunctional cranial nerve)

Blood leak:

Small blood vessels in the back of the retina that leak blood can be a sign of diabetes.

Dark under-eye circles:

It can be a sign of aging, but sometimes they’re the mark of an allergy known as allergic shiners.

How To Survive a Heart Attack When Alone..

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.

  • A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
  • A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
  • Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
  • The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

Contribute by SHARING this which can save a person’s life!
