Two studies hail resveratrol type 2 diabetes potential

Comment: Worldwide, more than 100 million people suffer from diabetes. Diabetic disorders have a genetic background and are divided into two types: juvenile and adult. Juvenile diabetes is generally caused by a genetic defect that leads to an insufficient production of insulin in the body and requires regular insulin injections to control blood sugar levels. The majority of diabetic patients, however, develop this disease as adults. Adult forms of diabetes also have a genetic background. However, the causes that trigger the outbreak of the disease in these patients at any stage in their adult lives have been unknown. It is, therefore, not surprising that diabetes is yet another disease that is still growing on a global scale.

Renewable Ousting Fossil Energy

September 11, 2013

2013 will go down in history as the year renewables start to out-compete fossil fuels, even as feed-in tariffs and other subsidies have disappeared from developed countries that are still heavily subsidizing fossil fuel use.  All this has happened within the past 4 to 5 years.
