October 10th is National Tic Tac Day

Sensor for Peanut allergy

Peanuts are not safe to eat if anybody has the peanut allergy. I came to know when one of our friends has the peanut allergy.
Nima co-founders Shireen Yates and Scott Sundvor, “we’re here to remove anxiety from your plate. With tools and information that lets you know if your food is safe for you.
The sensor is able to detect even the tiniest trace (10 parts per million) of peanut protein. To use Nima, you insert the food into a disposable test capsule, which goes into the device to figure out if there’s any peanut protein in the food. In under five minutes, the Nima sensor will tell you if your food is peanut-free”.

What kind of traveler are you(CDC)

We started reading the CDC(Center for disease control & Prevention ) before we were planning to go to the international travelling.
Every country has different requirements and vaccines.
Some of the vaccines we never got in the USA.
We took our family doctor, paediatrician appointment. They recommend us to talk with travel doctor too.
We took travel doctor appointment. The travel doctor gave us some particular immunization and some medicines and advise.
What we need for travelling.
Some countries need immunization before anybody enter.
We learned several new things.
Typhoid vaccine is important for travelling, we never had.
Our doctor ordered those vaccines for us and we paid.
It is not covered with the regular immunization in the USA.
What is your opinion about this? What kind of precaution you take before travelling.

What and why this happens when you have less than usual serotonin and diet

Foods That Could Boost Your Serotonin: The Serotonin Diet, Sunshine, Exercise, Positivity, Gut bacteria.
Exercise, Sunshine, Positivity, Gut bacteria

Now I know you are going to think about positivity. But if you ignore all the other three things for several years and wonder why isn’t working well.

In my opinion, if you don’t do all those things. Later on, it will make no sense. Those are the important things rather than positivity.
positivity comes in the end if you do all those things first.

Cheese
Pineapples

Sometimes we are wondering what is the Serotonin?

Serotonin is a chemical messenger that’s believed to act as a mood stabilizer. It’s said to help produce healthy sleeping patterns as well as boost your mood. Studies show that serotonin levels can have an effect on mood and behaviour, and the chemical is commonly linked to feeling good and living longer. Supplements can increase your serotonin levels via the amino acid tryptophan. Serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan.
What and why this happens when you have less than usual serotonin. The decline in vigorous physical exercise and, in particular, in effort-based rewards may contribute to the high level of depression in today’s society. The effect of exercise on serotonin suggests that the exercise itself, not the rewards that stem from exercise, may be important. If trials of exercise to prevent depression are successful, then prevention of depression can be added to the numerous other benefits of exercise.
The other factor that could play a role in raising brain serotonin is diet.
Although it is true that bananas contain serotonin.
α-Lactalbumin, a minor constituent of milk, is one protein that contains relatively more tryptophan than most proteins.
This enhanced the nutritional quality of the corn by increasing the bioavailability of both niacin and tryptophan, a practice that prevented pellagra.

In cultivated chickpeas, almost two-thirds of the tryptophan was in the free form.

consumption of tryptophan-rich foods play a role in reducing the prevalence of depression and aggression in society
