Vitamins Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good?

Vitamin supplements do not extend life and could even lead to premature death, according to research carried out at Copenhagen University.

Although I eat a healthy and good diet, I was suggested to take Vitamin B12. Vitamin B-12 is a vitamin which is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. Fruits and vegetables are often a good source of vitamins. I guess eating more fruits could help to solve many problems.

How To Keep Your Eyes in Tiptop Shape

Our eyes detects light. Light enters the pupil and is focused on the retina by the lens. Light-sensitive nerve cells called rods (for brightness) and cones (for color) react to the light. They interact with each other and send messages to the brain that indicate brightness, color, and contour.

It is genetic – people keep repeating mistakes

Most people tend to learn from their mistakes and avoid making the same blunder twice. But we find lots of people making same mistakes again and again. Now scientist found a new relationship between a specific gene and those of us prone to repeatedly making the same mistakes. From the nature article:

A genetic mutation that helps to determine the extent to which certain people are doomed to repeat history.

Drug addicts, alcoholics and compulsive gamblers are known to be more likely than other people to have this genetic mutation, which leaves them with fewer receptors of a certain type in the brain. These receptors — called D2 receptors – are activated when levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine drop.
