The cheMistery of life #SciChallenge2017

  1. 1. Anastasia Matei
  2. 2. •Perhaps you think of yourselves as an individualized person, but, in fact, you are a community of 50 trillions unicellular citizens working together. It’s a rather strange perception of human life to begin with, but from what I read, almost every cell in the human body can be compared with amoebas- individual organisms which had developed a cooperating strategy in order to survive. •At an elementary level we, humans, are just a consequence of “amoeba’s collective consciousness type”.
  3. 3. • An unusual perception about life and aging is the one presented by dr. Bruce H. Lipton , an American developmental biologist, who claims that genes and DNA can be manipulated by a person’s beliefs. • Generally speaking, aging reflects all the changes that occur in our bodies throughout time. We grow. We develop. We change. • Scientists have put forward a number of theories about how and why we age, but the evidence in support of these is still quite inconclusive.
  4. 4. • A nation reflects its citizens comportment. On the same principle, our character should reflect the elementary nature of our cell communities. • Using this cell communities as models, a surprising discovery was made: we are not “victims” of our genes and we are capable of creating our own lives full of peace, happiness and love.
  5. 5. • Another important thing about cells is that the nucleus and it’s material that contains DNA isn’t a cell’s “brain” . • It was discovered that if a cell’s nucleus is removed, the cell can survive up until two or even more months, keeping their biological functions, without genes. They eventually die, because without genes they cannot divide and reproduce the lost proteins. • Still, the cell did not die immediately after the enucleation , meaning that the “brain” was intact after the nucleus had been removed.
  6. 6. • Apart from the obvious changes, researchers found that more than 500 genes in the men’s bodies had changes in activity. This was pretty exciting result! •A research conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish showed that a change of lifestyle, including a better diet and exercise can lead not only to a better physique, but also to a change in genes. It turns out you can do a lot! •The study involved 30 men with low-risk prostate cancer that underwent three months of major changes, including: a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and soy products, moderate exercise (walking for half an hour daily) and daily stress management methods, such as meditation.
  7. 7. • We cannot stop the aging process, but what we can do is slow it; it only depends on us to make the positive changes in our life. • After all, it seems like we can manipulate our genes using the power of our mind, living a full life and aging beautifully, without diseases and medical treatments. • Also, the aging process is often seen as “a loss of something”; when you age, you lose your strength, your hair, your energy. But this is just a perception, and, if we could see this process just as a transformation of substance, life would be more simple and beautiful.
