Cholesterol Controlling Surgery

Weight loss surgery may reduce the ageing process significantly. Patients who lost nearly half their weight emerged from the operations appearing younger than usual. It appears that their telomeres had lengthened on a post-operational basis. The genetic changes were quite marked. Inflammation, a major cause of obesity, had been reduced too

In the past, it was common knowledge that telomeres could be lengthened by following a good diet and exercise regimen. The discovery that surgical weight loss efforts could have an effect too is a revolutionary finding. Reduction in length of telomeres causes all sorts of degenerative diseases. Cardiac Pathology, Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer’s not to mention an early death are just some of the ailments that afflict those who make unwise lifestyle choices. 

The more the external and internal fat tissues and the higher the Body Mass Index, the greater are the chances of catching these diseases. The study, mostly conducted on female patients, showed that they benefitted greatly from the complicated weight loss procedure. 

The gastric bypass surgery also cut off a major part of their gastrointestinal tract along with a reduction in stomach size. The health effects of changes that occur in the length of telomeres are a valuable addition to the storehouse of medical knowledge. And it is a common heritage of humanity in its endeavor to fight disease and restore health.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
