Enterobacter sakazakii


Pollution Infant Formula: Enterobacter sakazakii
Do not underestimate the problem of dilution formula. It was not a joke because the data can be used as illustration in Africa; 30% of infants died before age one year because of the milk with water is not clean and the wrong way dilution. Improper dilution not only make your child sick or malnourished, but also causes other complications. That is why, the composition of water and milk with the right dose is required.
One contaminant that should be addressed very seriously, is the contamination of milk by bacteria. This is consistent with a variety of news lately become warm conversation in the community. Community unrest began with the preaching of the research team concluded that IPB is 23% milk formulas contain Enterobacter sakazakii.
The bacteria has the potential to cause inflammation of the digestive tract (enteritis), infections of blood circulation (sepsis), as well as infection of the lining of spinal cord and brain (meningitis).
In response to these findings, we recommend that you do not necessarily act rashly. Action alert, more selective in choosing dairy products, full of attitude of prudence is also needed in preparing and giving formula milk to your baby.
Unlike breast milk that contains an antibacterial substance, formula is not bakteriostatis (resist the development and reproduction of bacteria) so easily become a breeding ground for bacteria. The condition of the newborn's body, even more who are born prematurely - are particularly vulnerable to the bacteria.
Actually, other than E. sakazakii, there are other, more types of bacteria should be wary of, namely E. coli and Salmonella. In the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) 01-2970-1999, as an indicator of sanitation still include coliform bacteria E. coli, not Entereobacteriaceae. While the Committee on Food Hygiene (CCFH) recommends the number of samples for testing E. sakazakii for the industry is not as much as the number of samples for Salmonella testing. This indicates, that although E. sakazakii is considered dangerous and should watch out for in the formula, but the risk is not as Salmonella.
The process of bacterial contamination in infant formula could originate from when milk from cows milked. lika not hygienic milking process will allow the development of bacteria. But with advances in technology and knowledge of the milking process, it can be minimized the possibility of bacterial contamination. For example, using a milking machine, thus reducing the risk of contaminated milk from outside air.
The process of microorganism contamination can also occur during storage and during processing. The bottom line processing of infant formula should always be maintained and remain sterile, ranging from milking process to date are processed in the factory. Looking at dairy processing is now very sophisticated and can be guaranteed quality so that contamination of bacteria otherwise nil.
Besides microorganisms contamination, SNI is also set requirements for types of contaminant metals such as copper, lead, zinc, tin, mercury, and arsenic. Given these requirements, infant formula manufacturers are required to provide collateral security in accordance with predetermined. Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) usually conduct periodic supervision of various products on the market, not just formula, but other types of food.
But that should realize is, there is no food that is zero risk (no risk at all), but good management will produce food with a very low risk. Modern consumers already have to open horizons of knowledge of food safety information so they can position themselves appropriately to issues that evolved to ensure the health of yourself and family.

Is it a stroke?
Stroke disease is a disorder of brain function due to blood flow to the brain is impaired (reduced). As a result, nutrients and oxygen to the brain dbutuhkan not fulfilled properly. Causes of stroke There are 2 kinds, namely the existence of blockages in blood vessels (thrombus), and the presence of a ruptured blood vessel.
Generally a stroke suffered by the elderly, because of the aging process causes the hardening and narrowing of blood vessels (arteriosclerosis) and the presence of fats that clog arteries (atherosclerosis). But several recent cases show an increase of cases of stroke that occur during adolescence and childbearing age (15-40 years). In this group, a major cause of stroke is a stress, drug abuse, alcohol, heredity, and an unhealthy lifestyle.
Cause of stroke
In the case of stroke adolescence, genetic factors (heredity) is the major cause of stroke. Frequently encountered cases of stroke caused by blood vessel is fragile and easily broken, or blood system disorders such as hemophilia and thalassemia disease are inherited by the parent of the patient. Meanwhile, if a family member with diabetes (diabetes), hypertension (high blood pressure), and heart disease, stroke likely become greater in the other family members.
Other causes of stroke are foods with high levels of bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein) is very high. Koleserol this evil there is a lot on junk food, or fast food. In addition, other causes of stroke is a lazy habit of exercise and movement, a lot of drinking alcohol, smoking, use of narcotic and addictive substances, much less rest time, and prolonged stress. Rupture of blood vessels are also often caused by disease of high blood pressure (hypertension).
Symptoms of stroke
Early symptoms of stroke usually dizziness, head seemed to spin (like vertigo disease), then followed with a speech impairment and mouth muscles move. Other symptoms are tergangguanya taste sensor (can not feel anything, such as pinched or pricked needles) and the body feels paralyzed side, and with no reflex movement. Often also occur suddenly blind or blurred vision (due to blood supply and oxygen to the eye is greatly reduced), disturbance of taste in the mouth system and the muscles of the mouth (so often encountered people with a wry face), paralysis of the muscles of the body, and disruption system memory and emotion. Often some people can not stop crying because of the paralysis of the brain controls the emotions system. It makes people act like a stroke patient psychiatric illness, but it's not. Things like this that need to be understood by the patient's family.
The healing process
There are 2 major healing process that must be patient. The first is healing with medicines in hospitals. Strict control must be done to keep the levels of bad cholesterol can be lowered and did not grow up. In addition, patients are also prohibited from eating foods that can trigger a stroke like junk food and salt (which can trigger hypertension).
The healing process is fisiotherapy second, which exercises the muscles to restore muscle function and communication function for close to its original state. Fisiotherapi conducted jointly fisiotherapi instructors, and patients must abide by the exercise done. If this fisiotherapi not be taking seriously, it can occur in permanent paralysis of the limbs that have suffered paralysis.
Healing in patients with stroke are very varied. There can be cured completely (100%), some are just 50% only. This recovery depends on whether or not severe stroke, the body condition of patient, patient compliance in undergoing the process of healing, perseverance and spirit of the patient to recover, as well as support and understanding from all family members of patients. Often found that stroke patients can recover, but suffered severe depression because their families do not want to understand and feel very disturbed with the disease (such as patient attitude does not accept the situation, the harsh treatment because patients have to clean dirt, handing the patient to the nurse who also treats patients with a rough, and so on). This should be avoided if a family member who suffers a stroke.
Garlic Benefits
Dr. Yongxiang Zhang of the University of Tokyo, Japan stated that the ability of garlic inhibit the deterioration of the brain and the immune system in animals is very impressive. It does not mean that garlic is able to restore youth or completely inhibit the aging process. But at least the benefits of garlic may help to combat the aging process.
In addition, according to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center, SAMC chemicals found in garlic can inhibit cancer cell growth. By eating garlic, cancer risk can be reduced.
High cholesterol levels are usually a sign of the aging process. Garlic is consumed regularly in a certain period of time can help lower cholesterol levels. Anti-cholesterol in garlic called ajoene help prevent blood clotting.
Dr. Gilles Fillion from the Institute Pasteur in France suspect, garlic can help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. Of course, with a softer effect. He found that garlic is beneficial to help release serotonin, a chemical that is involved in regulating a wide range of mood and behavior, including anxiety, melancholy, pain, aggression, stress, lack of sleep and memory. High levels of serotonin in the brain tends to function as a sedative that appease you, facilitate sleep, and relieve depression. Garlic helps normalize the serotonin system.

Tea Health Drinks
Tea is a tropical and subtropical plant which is scientifically known as Camellia Sinensis. From approximately 3000 types of tea result of interbreeding, the results obtained are 3 kinds of tea process, namely green tea, oolong tea and black tea. How tea processing tea leaves by chopping and drying in the sun so that chemical changes before being dried. The treatment will cause the color of the leaves turn brown and give a taste of black tea are typical.
Green tea, the oldest type of tea, so favored mainly by Japanese and Chinese society. Here the tea leaves have a bit of cooking, heating and drying so that only green leaf color can be maintained. While oolong tea is more of a type intermediate between black tea and green tea. The three types of tea each with its own health benefits because it contains binding biochemical called polyfenol, including flavonoids. Flavonoids are a group of antioxidants that exist naturally in vegetables, fruits, and beverages such as tea and wine.
Subclass of polyphenols include flavonols, flavonoids, flavanones, anthocyanidins, catechins, and biflavan. Derivatives of catechins such as epi-cathecin (EC), epigallo-cathecin (EGC), cathecin epigallo-gallate (EGCG), and quercetin is mainly found in tea. EGCG and quercetin is a powerful anti-oxidant with a strength of up to 4-5 times higher than vitamin E and C which is also a potential antioxidant. Antioxidants are known to prevent cells from damage considering each cell damage will contribute more than 50 diseases.
Green tea contains EGCG, as well as black tea, says a biochemist. In a study by Dutch researchers say, consume 4-5 cups of black tea every day cut the risk of stroke by 70% compared with those who consumed 2 cups of tea a day or less. Other reports mention more black tea consumption is associated with low heart attack cases. John Folts, director of the Medical School, Center for Research and Prevention of Arterial Thrombosis, University of Wisconsin, USA to find the key properties of flavonoids in tea. Research results showed that flavonoids in black tea could inhibit the clotting of blood platelet cells thus preventing the blockage of blood vessels in hantung coronary disease and stroke. Another study mentioned that the fanatical tea drinkers had higher levels of cholesterol and low blood pressure, although it remains unclear whether it was directly caused by tea.
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA to find the effect of green tea on the skin up to 90%. It turned out that tea is very effective to protect the skin from the sun can cause skin cancer. Tea also contains fluoride which is known to strengthen tooth enamel and help prevent tooth decay. In a laboratory study in Japan, researchers found that tea helps prevent the formation of dental plaque and kill bacteria cause inflammation of the gums.
Japanese study shows, tea-producing region known as the pendudukanya fanatic tea drinker, very low death rate caused by cancer. Another study, carried out cooperation between the research team Oguni and cancer research center in Beijing to study the effects of green tea extract on mice that had been given food rations carcinogenic (cancer-triggering substances.) Reportedly, the average rate of cancer in mice that received green tea extract half of the mice that did not receive green tea extract.
The researchers believe that polyphenols known as cathecin contained in green tea, helps the human body fight cancer cells. Another study conducted by Oguni and Dr. Masami Yamada of the Hamamatsu Medical Center found cathecin kill Helicobator pylori, the bacteria trigger stomach cancer.
