Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains The Origins Of Atomic Elements In Our Bodies (VIDEO)
The paper is entitled “Synthesis of the Elements in Stars” but is sometimes referred to as the B2FH paper, after the authors’ initials.

Your ‘CORE’ Being: by Astrophysicist Neil Tyson
What’s the human body made of? Ninety-nine percent consists of atoms of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus, with the remaining one percent consisting of trace elements like magnesium, sulfur, and iron.

What’s the human body made of? Ninety-nine percent consists of atoms of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus, with the remaining one percent consisting of trace elements like magnesium, sulfur, and iron.
~
But where did those elements come from? That question long presented a puzzle to scientists. At least it did until the publication of a now-obscure scientific paper in the middle of the twentieth century, as celebrated astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explains in a new video (above).
~
“There was a seminal paper — one of the most important research papers ever published — that gave us the description of the origin of the elements,” Tyson says in the video.
~
The paper is entitled “Synthesis of the Elements in Stars” but is sometimes referred to as the B2FH paper, after the authors’ initials
. It was published in Reviews of Modern Physics in 1957. Before its publication, the prevailing theory held that all elements were products of the Big Bang 15 billion years ago. But this theory accounted only for light elements like hydrogen and helium.
~
So where did the heavy elements found in nature come from?
~
The B2FH paper argued that all heavy elements were created within stars via nuclear fusion — a process known as stellar nucleosynthesis. As stars cool and “die,” they release the heavy elements into space. Ultimately, some of this material is incorporated into planets and even our bodies.
~
If the paper was so important, why do so few nonscientists know about it? According to Tyson, it’s because the paper’s origins don’t fit conventional notions of scientific discovery.
~
“There was no lone scientist burning the midnight oil making the eureka discovery,” Tyson says. “It was a little messier than that. But the consequences of it are profound.”

~
Symptoms:
~
~ anemia – anemia means a reduced number of red blood cells in the blood and is revealed on screening blood work as a reduced number of red blood cells (reduced RBC count and/or reduced hematocrit) In this type of anemia, the red blood cells are often microcytic (meaning the cells are smaller, which shows on bloodwork as a reduced “MCV”) and/or hypo chromic (meaning the cells have low hemoglobin content per cell, which shows on bloodwork as a low “MCHC” or “MCH”) Often the MCV and MCH/MCHC values begin to fall before the actual anemia begins to develop; these changes represent the body’s final attempts to continue producing red blood cells without an adequate supply of iron.
~ fatigue
~ poor physical endurance
~ excessive sleepiness
~ pale skin of face or hands, pale or bluish fingernails, pale inner eyelids
~ sore, inflamed tongue
~ lightheadedness or dizziness
~ feeling cold, easily chilled

~ itching, localized or generalized
~ shortness of breath
~ heavy menstrual flow
~ menstrual cramps
~ racing heart or heart skipping beats
~ poor appetite
~ poor nails: brittle, thin, flattened, ridged, or spoon-shaped
~ hair loss
~ frequent infections
~ desire to chew ice, sunflower seeds, raw noodles etc. or to eat inedible substances such as paint, dirt, or paper
~ inadequate response to thyroid hormone therapy
~ whites of eyes can have a blue hue

Foods:
All meats (especially liver), eggs, clams, oysters, shrimp, dark green leafy vegetables, lima beans, navy beans, soy beans, kidney beans, split peas, green peas, dried peaches and apricots, raisins, potato, the cabbage/broccoli/cauliflower family of vegetables, nuts including peanuts, and blackstrap molasses.

RLS – Restless Leg Syndrome

Posted in RLS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:40 pm by PCOSLady

Restles Leg Syndrome
~ RLS ~

~
Restless legs syndrome (RLS), also known as Willis-Ekbom disease (WED), is a disruptive neurologic disorder that seriously affects 2-3% of the adult population. RLS results in an irresistible urge to move the legs which is often accompanied by unusual or unpleasant sensations in the legs that may be described as creeping, tugging, or pulling. Because RLS most often occurs in the evening, it can severely disrupt sleep and reduce quality of life.
~
If you have restless legs syndrome (RLS), you are not alone. Up to 10% of the U.S. population may have RLS. Many people have a mild form of the disorder, but RLS severely affects the lives of millions of individuals. Spend some time at our links to the left discovering how the RLS Foundation can help you in your own personal RLS journey.

~ Have your mineral levels checked!
~ PCOS ladies may experience RLS as well…Research has it documented…

Causes, incidence, and risk factors
~
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) occurs most often in middle-aged and older adults. Stress makes it worse. The cause is not known in most patients.
~
RLS may occur more often in patients with:
~
~ Chronic kidney disease
~ Diabetes
~ Iron deficiency
~ Parkinson’s disease
~ Peripheral neuropathy
~ Pregnancy
~ Use of certain medications such as caffeine, calcium channel blockers, lithium, or neuroleptics
~ Withdrawal from sedatives
~
RLS is commonly passed down in families. This may be a factor when symptoms start at a younger age. The abnormal gene has not yet been identified.
~
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
~ National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine … RLS is a disorder in which there is an urge or need to move the legs to stop unpleasant sensations. Symptoms: RLS leads to sensations in the lower legs between the knee and ankle.
