 why have i got ridges on my nails

why have i got ridges on my nails

I have noticed vertical ridges on my nails. I want to know if it is a sign of a deficiency? What do ridges on the nails mean? Our outward appearance is a good indication of our inner state of health and many Naturopaths often consider the appearance of the hair, skin and nails as well as facial signs when taking a consultation. Changes or abnormalities in these areas can be signs of deeper imbalances and these can often be detected before they manifest as signs and symptoms in other parts of the body. PThe condition of the nails are a helpful tool for Naturopath's when determining areas of ill health in the body. PThere is an interesting saying that goes "the story of his illness is written somewhere on the man". Nail diagnosis is only one modality used to form a clear picture of a

 why do we have to work to live

why do we have to work to live

Emanuel s embrace of an early end--one that s only a few years shy of the U. S. life expectancy of 78. 8--is the exact opposite of how most people in America feel about dying. In a survey from the Pew Research Center, nearly 70% of American adults said they wanted to live to be up to 100 years old. But why? The quest to live forever, or to live for great expanses of time, has always been part of the human spirit, says Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Emory Center for Ethics. People now seem to have particular reason to be optimistic: in the past century, science and medicine have extended life expectancy, and longevity researchers (not to mention Silicon Valley types) are pushing for a life that lasts at least a couple decades more. Of course, people want to juice their life spans for

 why is there life on earth and not other planets

why is there life on earth and not other planets

Answer 1: Hold on - there may be life on Mars. We don't yet know for certain that there isn't. Right now, life as we know it would not survive anywhere except Earth or Mars, and possibly Europa (in our solar system). Life requires liquid water. Europa (one of Jupiters moons) has a muck of mud some hundreds of kilometers below the ice that has water in it, and there might be life there. Equatorial regions of Mars get above freezing for parts of the year, and while the Martian atmosphere is too thin to sustain liquid water on the surface, the pressure is great enough underground, and muddy slurries of landslides from subsurface water have been observed. Earth of course has oceans of the stuff. It all has to do with pressure and temperature for water. Now, whether there is life there or not,

 why does a dog eat their own poop

why does a dog eat their own poop

At DoodyCalls, we spend a lot of time with our dogs. In fact, our dog RustyБwho looks a whole lot like our mascot DoodleБsleeps right next to me at night. Although hard to wake up in the morning, once heБs up he says hello with a good morning kiss and quickly gets ready to go to work. There was a time when the thought of getting a kiss from Rusty would not have been a good thing. Rusty is a rescue dog and shortly after adopting him, we discovered that he ate his own poop! Fortunately, he no longer does this, and his kisses are a whole lot more pleasant. When we adopted Rusty, he had a terrible case of intestinal worms and joining a new family must have been pretty stressful for him. It took some time, but he recovered from the worms and after he grew used to his new home, he stopped his

within a typical human cell which number is the greatest

Chromatin is the substance of a chromosome and consists of a complex of DNA and protein in eukaryotic cells. It can be made visible by staining (thus the name which literaly means coloured material). The nucleic acids are generally in the form of double-stranded DNA. The major proteins involved in chromatin are histone proteins. In a eukaryotic cell, nearly all DNA is found compacted in chromatin. DNA is packaged into chromatin both to constrain the size of the molecule and to allow the cell to control expression of the chromatin packaged genes. Changes in chromatin structure are effected mainly by methylation and acylation of the nucleosome proteins. Chromatin structure is also of importance with respect to the DNA replication. Genetic material (DNA) is also present in the nucleus, the
