An acidic diet may increase the risk of type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is characterised by a permanently high level of blood sugar. There are two types, known as type 1 (once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes) and type 2 (formerly noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or adult-onset diabetes, which concerns 90% of diabetics).

A disrupted biological clock: a risk factor for anxiety disorders

In mammals, light is essential in order for the body to function properly. This response to light is controlled in our bodies by a biological clock. Like well-oiled clockwork, the central clock located in a small structure of the brain known as the hypothalamus in turn synchronises numerous secondary clocks present in other areas of the brain, and in some peripheral organs. These clocks control the expression of many genes that allow the body to adapt to the environment on a daily basis.
