Constipation treatments can be partly or temporarily beneficial but, according to studies, barely 50 per cent of chronic sufferers get true relief or they might experience side effects. Israeli firm Vibrant's newly-unveiled vibrating capsule technology could spell an end to both situations, it's been claimed.
The motion generated replicates a process named peristalsis, through which waste material is driven down through the bowel. In other words, the capsule's vibrations enhance a natural biological process and those behind its development hope it can essentially reverse the effects of constipation....

New findings suggests that regular coffee drinkers could have extra protection against a major type of cancer.
Published in 20 January's Journal of the National Cancer Institute edition, the study reports that the risk of malignant melanoma developing in non-coffee drinkers is 20 per cent higher than in those who have at least four cups each day.

A new study by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute investigators demonstrates that vitamin D can protect some people with colorectal cancer by perking up the immune system's vigilance against tumor cells. The research, published by the journal Gut, represents the first time that a link between vitamin D and the immune response to cancer has been shown in a large human population. The finding adds to a growing body of research showing that vitamin D - known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it is produced by the body in response to sunlight exposure - plays a key role in cancer prevention....

Adding an avocado to your daily diet may help lower bad cholesterol, in turn reducing risk for heart disease, according to health researchers. Avocados are known to be a nutrient-dense food, high in monounsaturated fatty acids. Previous studies have suggested that avocados are a cholesterol-lowering food, but this is the first study - to the researchers' knowledge - to look at health implications of avocados beyond monounsaturated fatty acids....
