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 there are many inherent advantages to Electric Vehi ...

16 Traits Of The World's Most Successful People

Aug 13 2014 9:28am CDT | Source: Business Insider

When the young journalist Napoleon Hill interviewed the industrialist Andrew Carnegie in 1908, Carnegie liked Hill so much that he decided he would share all of the strategies that turned him from a penniless immigrant into the richest man in the world. From that point forward, Hill dedicated his career to understanding the work ethics of highly successful people like Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, collecting them into his own philosophy and then packaging it into articles, books, an ...

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 ...

WASHINGTON – In 2025, self-driving cars could be the norm, people could have more leisure time and goods could become cheaper.

17 Things Successful People Never Say

Over 2,500 years ago, philosopher and poet Lao Tzu taught that our words become actions, which eventually become our destiny. In first century Greece, historian and essayist Plutarch declared that a speaker's state of mind, character, and disposition are exposed through their words. And Napoleon Hill, the twentieth century father of personal success literature, asserts that words plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. "Across the planet, s ...
