Coronavirus LIVE Updates: Former Assam Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Tarun Gogoi has been shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) after his health deteriorated today, as per a report. Housing—its ability to provide shelter, its quality, location, warmth—has proven to be a key factor in the pandemic’s “syndemic” nature. That is, as well as shaping exposure to the virus itself, housing contributes to the social patterning of chronic diseases that increase COVID-19 risks. PHASE 3 EFFICACY TRIALS: Scientists give the vaccine to thousands of people and wait to see how many become infected, compared with volunteers who received a placebo. These trials can determine if the vaccine protects against the coronavirus. In June, the F.D.A. advised vaccine makers that they would want to see evidence that vaccines can protect at least 50 percent of those who receive it In addition, Phase 3 trials are large enough to reveal evidence of relatively rare side effects that might be missed in earlier studies. Lian, Murphy and their colleagues found a defect in the epigenetic covering that resulted in the loss of a DNA methylation hydroxymethylation mark. Known as loss of 5-hmC, this defect was found in cells from patients with psoriasis but not other skin conditions that produce a similar skin thickening, such as callous-like areas from chronic irritation. The team replicated the defect in a mouse model of psoriasis and found that it preferentially affected genes that regulated the function of skin cells. The vitamin C in your body is largely stored in your skin — specifically in your epidermis and dermis. However, as you get older, the amount of vitamin C in your skin decreases gradually. Exposure to excessive amounts of UV light, cigarette smoke and other pollutants can also reduce the amount of vitamin C in your skin. Surprised? Well, losing weight requires controlling 3 things – your metabolism (by regulating the diet), your body (by exercising), and your mind. If you fail to control any one of them, there is absolutely no use controlling the other two. Controlling the mind is the most important pre-requisite of any weight-loss plan. This element just acts as a catalyst, irrespective of the way you have adopted to reduce weight, and helps you become slimmer faster than ever before.

The review goes on to explain that citrus contains micronutrients that are essential for growth and optimal health, such as thiamin, niacin, folate, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, magnesium potassium, riboflavin, calcium, phosphorus and copper. These factors help prevent chronic diseases caused by nutrient deficiency, and citrus has been tied directly to helping prevent risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
