Drinking cranberry juice can protect your heart

A new study has revealed that drinking cranberry juice might play a role in protecting against cardiovascular disease.

Researcher Rodriguez-Mateos of the University Duesseldorf said that cranberry juice was a rich source of phytonutrients, including proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins and phenolic acids. In the study, researchers gave 10 healthy male subjects, between the ages of 18-40 years, 450 ml of sweetened cranberry juice made from concentrate. The cranberry concentrate was prepared with water to concentrations ranging from 0 to 117%.

Blood and urine samples were collected for 24 hours following consumption to detect changes in plasma and urinary cranberry-derived polyphenols. Across the board, all of the cranberry juices benefited flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) – including 25% cranberry juice, equivalent to the commonly consumed cranberry juice cocktail. The highest concentration of cranberry-polyphenol juice also showed improvements in systolic blood pressure.

Defending the health of the circulatory system and improving vascular function, it not only reduced the chances of developing atherosclerosis, but played an important role in kidney function, hormone delivery and waste filtration. Rodriguez-Mateos said that their results laid the groundwork to better understand the array of potential vascular and cardiovascular health benefits of cranberry polyphenols, adding that the significant improvements in vascular function from drinking two cups of cranberry juice suggested an important role for cranberries in a heart-healthy diet.

Prostate Cancer Treatment in India

For Prostate cancer treatment robotic surgery is a common choice to try to cure prostate cancer if it is not thought to have spread outside the gland (stage T1 or T2 cancers).

The main type of robotic surgery for prostate cancer is known as a radical prostatectomy surgery. In this operation, the surgeon removes the entire prostate gland plus some of the tissue around it, including the seminal vesicles. A radical prostatectomy can be done in different ways.

A less invasive surgical option – Laparoscopy is available for urologic surgery that uses small incisions. But, due to some the limitations of laparoscopy procedures it is not suggested
for more complex urologic surgeries.

One of the most modern and effective way of surgery is robotic radical prostatectomy surgery. It is a minimally invasive approach, using the latest Da Vinci Robotic Surgical System and
it is ideal for delicate urological surgeries.
