Testing of new compounds that collaborated with drug companies Therapeutics calpain has been shown to significantly slow the progression of cataracts.
“By using these drugs at early stages, the development of cataracts can be slowed so disease is not will actually grow more severe, “said Professor Andrew Abell, chairman of the inventors of the drug that has been working on this project for ten years.
Currently, surgery to remove cataract procedure lasted for 30-45 minutes. With the use glasses, about 95 percent of patients who had surgery reported normal vision immediately.
“Our drug can be either drops or creams are used to the eyes every night before bed. Through a routine eye examination, the doctor eye can see the early stages of cataract formation before the person know they have cataracts. Once detected, the patient can start using our drug to slow the progression of cataract, “said Dr. Tim Lovell, CEO of calpain Therapeutics
” We know that if someone has a cataract in one eye, chances are the other eye will also be affected. Delaying the onset of cataract in one eye has been diagnosed with cataracts may slow growth for a while, “imbu Dr. Lovell.

Melbourne, As with cigarettes and drugs, salt was also able to make people addicted. Research shows salt, cigarettes and drugs stimulate the same brain regions.
This finding may explain why many people are so difficult to reduce salt intake, although there are warnings about the dangers of high blood pressure and heart health.
Researchers from Australia and the United States found that the salt can trigger genes, brain cells and brain connections similar to that done by tobacco and illicit drugs.
“In this study we have shown that one of the classic instinct ‘starvation’ of salt, providing organizations the same nerves as the addiction to opiates (opium) and cocaine, “said Prof Derek Denton of the University of Melbourne, as reported by Timeofindia , Tuesday (11/10/2011).
According to Professor Denton, when people eat salty foods then the brain cells to make proteins more than usual, just as happens when the brain is addicted to heroin, cocaine and nicotine.
The study also revealed that after eating the salt of the brain will believe it has to repair the body properly after the previous ‘starvation’ of salt. In other words, the changes caused by the ‘lust’ salt disappeared before the salt can leave the gut, enters the blood and reach the brain.
“It is amazing to see the gene that gives a chance ‘off’ when the loss of sodium (salt) suddenly returned to the initial state in just a few minutes, “explained Prof. Denton.
The results of this study have been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
previous studies also found that foods containing salt will continue to stimulate the brain so that dopamine will light up and make someone kept thinking about those foods that will lead to addiction to food.
Additionally taste senses humans do crave salty foods from time to time, so more sugar and salt you eat, the desire to constantly eat is also getting stronger. These conditions as well as someone who is addicted to nicotine in cigarettes.

For that community is expected to start to reduce intake of sugar and salt gradually, for example by avoiding eating in front of the television that makes a person become overeating and reduce stress.
