Irish scientists have recently discovered how to produce electricity from human tears. It is very obvious to get tears when we cry and even when we laugh. So far we have known that tears are salty. But the shocking matter that hidden in the tears is it can produce electricity. Till now we have look at tears as worthless drops. But this research is an eye opener for everyone to know the value of tears. Now tears are most valuable drops that too in the form of electricity. We can generate electricity by applying a pressure on the protein that found in tears, Irish scientists said.

Generating Electricity out of Tears:

The researchers from the Bernal Institute, University of Limerick (UL), Ireland, observed the crystals of lysozyme protein in the tears. This protein is abundant in the tears. Scientists said we can generate electricity from tears by applying pressure on the lysozyme protein. Not only in tears this modern protein is also present in egg whites of birds. It seems that egg also contains electricity.

Even milk also contains lysozyme crystals and these crystals belongs to protein category. The research team has observed the presence of lysozyme in the egg whites of birds, as well as in the tears, saliva and milk of mammals. Their report was published on October 2 in the journal, Applied Physics Letters.

Scientists are saying that milk has the quality to convert the Mechanical energy into Electrical energy. This process is known as Piezoelectricity. Piezoelectricity is the property that the ability to generate electricity by applying pressure. The capacity to generate electricity from this particular protein has not thus far been explored. Because it is a biological material it is non-toxic. Prof Tewfik Soulimane we are the first to use these crystals to show the evidence of piezoelectricity”.

Farmer find Giant Egg: Egg inside another egg

Egg

Generally, if we break the egg we find egg white and yolk but in this case, something different has happened. Do you ever find an egg inside another egg when you crack it? Sounds different but it happened in Australia. Scott Stockman who is 47 years old working in the Stockman’s Eggs farm on the Atherton Tablelands, west of Cairns, in Far North Queensland found an egg inside another egg.

He has been working there since his childhood. He discovered a giant chicken egg on March 4 in the farm where he has been working. This giant egg is three times larger in size than the usual egg. Generally, normal egg weighs 58 grams but this extraordinary egg weighed 176 grams.

Egg 1

I have never seen such a large egg, he told to news.com.au. For the reference the took the picture of giant egg along with the other normal eggs. Later he posted the photos on the Facebook and the news has gone viral. It became a puzzle for everyone and thinking about why it has happened he said.

He was decided to make an omelette with this egg and he prepared everything for it and he cracked the egg and they were all quite shocked because they found another smaller egg inside. This is the largest chicken egg laid at the farm since it was started in 1923.

Associate Professor Raf Freire from Charles Sturt University’s veterinary sciences school said that he had never seen like this before and he did not know how it happened. There is no danger to eat this giant egg said, Prof Freire.  Gaynor Davies, head of operations at the British Hen Welfare Trust said it is really a rare egg having other egg inside.

The farm said it is very difficult to identify which hen out of 60,000 hens had laid this massive egg but it is an uncomfortable experience.

Did you know Fasting can increase your lifespan ?

Fasting 1

Fasting is a natural process keeping our body away from taking food and water for a period of time.A fast may also be intermittent in nature. Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health scientists identified that doing fasting often improves our lifespan.

Research:

Scientist experimentally found that Fasting changes the Mitochondrial network reactions inside the cell would not only help to increase our lifespan and also improves our health. Mitochondria are known as the powerhouse of the cell. Mitochondria provide energy for all the cells whenever it required.

In this study, scientists found a common relation between the dynamic changes in the shapes of mitochondrial networks and longevity. For this research scientist used  C. elegans (nematode worms). These worms live only two weeks.

Mitochondria 1

The researchers found the Mitochondrial networks were fused or youthful state when the researchers regulate the diet of nematode worms or restricting the worms diet. These youthful networks increase the lifespan. Scientists estimating that usually, In normal conditions these networks would help the mitochondria to change from one stage to another stage.

Fasting would help to increase the communication between the mitochondria with the other organelles like peroxisomes to burn the fat with the help of Oxygen. Fasting helps to reduce the cholesterol. Ultimately it helps us to reduce weight.Due to this research scientists proved that due to the fasting would help to slow ageing and improves health. The next step in the research is to test the role mitochondrial networks have in the effect of fasting in mammals.

Our previous experiments revealed that how intermittent fasting could help in slow ageing, still we are in starting phase in understanding biology said, William Mair. William mair is the associate professor of genetics and complex diseases at Harvard Chan School and senior author of the study.

However knowingly or unknowingly we are doing good to our body by following traditional practices. Because most of us we do fast on the part of traditional practices. So somehow following certain traditional practices doing good for us.
