editor’s note

Good media. What is it? Do you think there is such a thing? If so, do you advocate it, do you support it, do you seek it out? Being an editor of this publication now for 14 years, I have certainly learnt what media is about and how much bias there is in it. Essentially, it is all biased. No question. Even this magazine has my bias, which is why it is so important to try to read with an open mind, and do your own research. Connect the dots yourself, don’t be satisfied with what someone else tells you – that is just the starting point.Recently at an event I was attending, I had someone say to me “you have so many different articles in your magazine Catherine,” and…

scientists pave way for diamonds to trace early cancers

Physicists from the University of Sydney have devised a way to use diamonds to identify cancerous tumours before they become life threatening.Their findings, published in Nature Communications, reveal how a nanoscale, synthetic version of the precious gem can light up early-stage cancers in non-toxic, non-invasive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans.Targeting cancers with tailored chemicals is not new but scientists struggle to detect where these chemicals go since, short of a biopsy, there are few ways to see if a treatment has been taken-up by a cancer.Led by Professor David Reilly from the School of Physics, researchers from the University investigated how nanoscale diamonds could help identify cancers in their earliest stages.“We knew nano diamonds were of interest for delivering drugs during chemotherapy because they are largely non-toxic and non-reactive,” says…

ayurvedic health tonic

Chyawanprash (also known as chyavanaprasha, chyavanaprash, chyavanaprasam and chyawanaprash) is a jam-like cooked mixture of sugar, honey, Triphala, ghee, sesame oil, berries and other herbs and spices.Chyawanprash is widely sold and consumed in India as a dietary supplement. Various Indian holy books including Mahabharat and Puranas relate that the Ashwini Kumar brothers, the twins, who were RajVaidhya (Royal Physicians) to Devas during Vedic times, first prepared this formulation for Chyawan Rishi at his Ashramon Dhosi Hill near Narnaul, Haryana, India. The first historically documented formula for chywanprash appears in Charaka Samhita, the ancient Ayurvedic treatise.Chyawanaprash tastes sweet and sour at the same time. The taste is largely dominated by the flavours of honey, ghee (clarified butter) and triphala, a primary ingredient of Chyawanaprash which makes it rich in Vitamin C…
