A new study published in the International Wound Journal which shows that a bacteria which has been discovered in the stomachs of honey bees can be used to beat antibiotic-resistant bugs and treat persistent wounds has become a major talking point in the world of medicine. The study couldn’t have come at a better time because modern day medicine and overused antibiotics are facing a lot of resistance from countless diseases and minor injuries and infections that were once termed as “treatable” are once again beginning to kill. The main reasons why honey has been used as a form of medicine for thousands of years are that it never goes bad and it is a natural anti-bacterial. Honey has an excellent sugar content, acidity and viscosity which makes it extremely effective in sealing wounds. Small amounts of hydrogen peroxide have also been found in honey. However, this new study states that there could be something else at play as well. According to a group of researchers in Sweden, a unique group of lactic acid
bacteria has been found in the stomachs of honey bees. These bacteria are located in an enlarged section of...

Recent studies conducted by a group of neurologists at the Loyola University Medical Center have shown that a a shortage of Vitamin B1, also known as Thiamine, can lead to a lethal brain affliction that is known as the Wernicke encephalopathy. Some of the main symptoms of this disorder include hallucinations, double vision, involuntary eye movements, coma, confusion, impairment of the ability to control muscles and eye issues. If a person leaves this disorder untreated, the conditions can aggravate and it can also lead to brain damage and the ultimate death of a person.
According to a report written by a group of Loyola University neurologists and published in the Scientific American Medicine Journal, Wernicke encephalopathy is a disease that usually occurs in people having disorders such as anorexia or alcoholism that ultimately lead to problems like malnourishment.

Studies state that weekly text message reminders can go a long way in improving awareness and encouraging healthy food choices among people. This study was conducted by the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It is common knowledge that the FDA considers 2,000 calories a benchmark for a reasonable calorie intake for most adults. This is one of the main reasons why the FDA mandated nutrition labels in food packagings in the first place. Researchers believe that the key to translating these nutrition labels and using them properly is to encourage the use of healthy food choices.
The study was published in the Health Promotion Practice website. It had surveyed a total of 246 participants who dined at the John Hopkins Hospital Cafeteria and tried to assess their knowledge of the value of a 2,000 calorie diet. The cafeteria offered calorie labels on food choices, but it offered no information with regards to the daily context.
The participants of the study were randomly assigned to receive a text reminder, an email reminder or no reminder at all about the value of the 2,000 calorie diet. This reminder was given for a total of four weeks on every Monday and the...

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
Cleopatra used gold in her skin care routine
