Red wine compound prevents hearing loss

Feb 22 2013, 3:26am CST | by

London, Feb 22 (IANS) Resveratrol, a red wine compound, also seems to prevent hearing loss, besides warding off heart disease, cancer and dementia, says a study.

London, Feb 22 — Resveratrol, a red wine compound, also seems to prevent hearing loss, besides warding off heart disease, cancer and dementia, says a study.

In a study conducted by the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, healthy rats administered reseveratrol were less likely to suffer noise-induced hearing loss for a long period of time.

Michael Seidman from Henry Ford, who led the study, says: "Our latest study focuses on resveratrol and its effect on the body's response to injury - something that is believed to be the cause of many health problems including Alzheimer's disease, cancer, ageing and hearing loss."

"Resveratrol is a very powerful chemical that seems to protect against the body's inflammatory process, as it relates to ageing, cognition (brain function) and hearing loss," adds Seidman, the journal Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery reports.

Hearing loss affects half of people over the age of 60, but many begin to suffer problems in their 40s or 50s. It usually sets in with the death of tiny "hair" cells in the inner ear as a result of ageing, according to the Daily Mail.

Resveratrol lowered noise-induced hearing loss in rats exposed to potentially deafening sounds. "We've shown that by giving animals resveratrol, we can reduce the amount of hearing and cognitive decline," says Seidman.

In January, Hebrew University of Jerusalem scientists reported that washing down red meat with a glass of red wine can prevent the build-up of cholesterol in the body.

Drinking a large glass of red wine every day could help prevent bowel cancer as well, Leicester University researchers said recently.

As my colleague Rob Wile reported Thursday, Credit Suisse analysts Dan Galves and Shreyas Patil have begun covering Tesla Motors, and they predict the stock price for Elon Musk's upstart electric car company will increase over time. Galves and Patil argue that between electric vehicles (EVs), such as Tesla's Model S sedan, and oldfangled internal combustion engine cars, the fight is not fair: EVs win in a rout.  "We believe ...

What makes a disruptive technology?

Aug 12 2014 7:10am CDT | Source: BetaNews

According to Clayton M Christensen, author of The Innovator’s Dilemma, disruptive innovations are characterized by their ability to create entirely new markets rather than merely update existing markets with new products. They are black swans, rare events where new thinking and changing markets combine to create radical change. A common example is the light bulb and Pearl Street Station -- a major gamble by Thomas Edison. Wi ...
