Do you wear makeup to the gym? Dermatologist reveals what REALLY happens when you wear cosmetics while exercising – and why you should stop immediately

  • Dr Natasha Cook revealed to FEMAIL the extent of the damage it can do
  • She also shared some tips on how to keep your skin healthy if you do.

Cientistas confirmam nova alternativa de prevenção e tratamento do Alzheimer

Uma nova possibilidade para prevenir e potencialmente tratar o Alzheimer acaba de ser revelada por um grupo de cientistas da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), conforme informações da Agência O Globo. O “remédio” é o exercício físico que, segundo os pesquisadores, quando praticado produz a irisina, um tipo de hormônio que é desenvolvido pelos músculos durante a atividade física.

Até então, a irisina era associada apenas à queima de gordura, mas o estudo mostra que, no cérebro, ela é importante para que os neurônios possam se comunicar e formar memórias. o Alzheimer é uma  doença neurodegenerativa que mais avança no mundo por conta do envelhecimento da população. Até o momento a enfermidade não tem cura.
