Researchers Reveal Food Hazards Over Flies

Fly is an insect that is often found around us. However, not many know if they bring hundreds of species of harmful bacteria to humans.

Researchers from Pennsylvania State University in the United States even warned people not to eat foods that have been infected with flies.

In a study of microbiology of 116 flies, researchers found that flies carry hundreds of different bacterial species. Many of them are harmful to humans.
“We believe that this may indicate a mechanism of pathogen transmission that has been ignored by public health workers, and flies may contribute to the rapid transmission of pathogens in epidemic situations,” said Donald Bryant, of Pennsylvania State University.

The researchers then investigated the microbial content of the body parts of flies, including legs and wings.

Researchers from Pennsylvania State University, Stephan Schuster say that the feet appear to be part of the body of the largest fly transferring microbial organisms from one place to another.

“The legs and wings show the highest microbial diversity in the body of flies, suggesting that bacteria use flies as air transport,” Schuster said.

The possibility of bacteria able to survive in the body flies then grows and spreads on new surfaces.
“In fact, research shows that every step of hundreds of flies that fly carries a microbial colony, especially if new surfaces support bacterial growth,” he said.

Blowflies and house flies that are a species of carrion fly, use dirt and rotting organic matter to nurture their child.

The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, also shows that blowflies and flies have more than 50 percent microbiomes and mixtures of microorganisms that are bad for the body.

5 Effects Too Often Angry, One of Early Death

Keeping the mind from anger, when it comes to peaking emotion, is not easy. But research that reveals that anger is associated with a short age, as reported by Dailymail, Monday (27/11), may help you focus more refrain from anger.

Here are 5 hidden facts of anger, which are harmful to your health.

1. Grumpy die sooner

Research from Iowa State University found that men who were angry between the ages of 20 and 40, were one and a half times more likely to die at the age of 35, compared with those who were quieter.

Scientists believe this is due to a number of factors that connect stress with physiological damage. The frequent release of adrenaline during periods of DNA damage, can cause life-threatening illnesses such as multiple sclerosis.

2. Grumpy tend to be less rest

Angry feelings produce an increased response in the amygdala (the part of the brain associated with survival instinct). Emotions in anger push the amygdala to signal increased anxiety to parts of the brain and other bodies that increase blood flow to the limbs and heart, which relaxes less.

Those who indulge in anger tend to experience insomnia than those who engage in an emotional ‘debate’, according to neuroscientists at the University of Massachusetts.

“Writing the cause of your anger unravels your mind, reduces fear response and encourages relaxation,” says Mike Fisher, director of the British Association of Anger Management.

3. Anger can cause headaches

Emotions such as being overjoyed or overwhelmingly result in the release of stress hormones cortisol, adrenaline and testosterone, which put the body into ‘flight mode’.

Chemical spikes increase blood flow to the brain and trigger swelling of blood vessels and nerves around the brain and pressure that can lead to tension and headaches.

4. Anger damage the respiratory system

According to researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, hostilities may reduce the functioning of the respiratory system. Over an eight-year period, hostile individuals perform very bad acts very significantly and worse than non-hostile people.

5. Anger can cause depression

When we feel angry, neurotransmitters and hormones flow through the bloodstream and can increase heart rate and muscle tension. This is the state of the body to watch out for.

The frequent occurrence of this reaction makes the tension in the neurons in the hypothalamus (brain stress control center) to be difficult for neurons to be turned off. And the happy hormone (serotonin) is significantly depleted in some individuals with aggressive properties.
