Induced Tumor

Stress, is a dreadful word for every single person. Perhaps it is not so apparently seen among the children and adolescents, but it is a very strong word especially to majority of the working people and individuals who has a career.

According to, Stress is a feeling that's created when we react to particular events. When a challenging, tough situation is met with focus, strength, heightened alertness as well as stamina, stress emerges as the body's way of rising to the occasion.

The human body responds to events which cause stress by activating certain specific hormones as well as the nervous system. Firstly, hypothalamus gives way to adrenal glands to produce more adrenaline hormones as well as a handful of cortisol. These hormones are like energy boosters, where they increase your breathing rate, speeds up your heart pumping rate, blood pressure, and of course, your metabolism rate is also elevated.

In a recent study which was conducted in Yale University, researchers found that stress could induce signals that cause cells to develop into tumors. But firstly, we need to understand how a tumor grows. According to most researchers, they believed that the growth of tumor is caused by more than one cancer-causing mutation to take place in a single cell.

However, researchers at Yale found that these mutations did not need to co-exist in the same cells to cause tumors, and a finding in regard to this, suggesting that it is much easier for a tissue to accumulate mutations in different cells than in the same cell.

The study which they conducted by using fruit flies, found that stressful conditions, for example a wound, can already afford to trigger cancer formation. The leader of the Yale Team, Xu Tian, reckoned that a lot of different conditions can trigger stress signaling, among those included in the list are physical stress, emotional stress, infections as well as inflammations.

Sleep Early

Kids are told to sleep early especially when these kids have grown up to a state that they start to step into the school's compound. Why are parents instructing their kids to do so? Are they afraid that their kids would not wake up on time for their schooling sessions? Or worry that they will not able to concentrate during the classes? There seem to be many factors, but now, another factor might attract the attentions of the parents, or even the adolescents themselves.

A study in January issue of the journal Sleep, suggested that adolescents with bedtime set earlier by parents were significantly less likely to suffer from depression and the inclination of committing suicide.

A shocking result reveals that for children whose sleeping time which were set at midnight or later, the risk of getting depression is increased by 24% while the thought of committing suicide will be increased by 20%, compare to the sleeping time set by parents which is at 10pm or earlier. Those are the statistics for sleeping time, but you would of course wondering does the time duration for a good sleep affect as well?

The answer is ---yes. There are also statistics which prove this from the same study. For those adolescents who sleep for merely five hours or fewer, the chances of developing depression is 71% more likely, while it is 48% more likely to have suicidal thoughts.

Thought this study only targeted the young ones, but of course, for adults, especially working people, a good night sleep is equally important too. There are also studies which show that suicidal thoughts could be developed if an adult do not get enough sleep each day. Other than suicidal thought, other complications such as high blood pressure, heart diseases would also occur should one's biological clock goes haywire.
