    In many athletic and occupational settings, the wearing of protective clothing in warm or hot environments creates conditions of uncompensable heat stress where the body is unable to maintain a thermal steady state. Therefore, special precautions must be taken to minimise the threat of thermal...

    Aging is characterized by a stochastic accumulation of molecular damage, progressive failure of maintenance and repair, and consequent onset of age-related diseases. Applying hormesis in aging research and therapy is based on the principle of stimulation of maintenance and repair pathways by...

    The application of sub-lethal stresses is known to be an efficient strategy to enhance survival of probiotic bacteria during drying processes. In this context, we previously showed that the application of heat stress upon the entry into stationary phase increased significantly the viability of...

  • PS Also Helps. Manage Physical Stress.  // Total Health;Nov2005, Vol. 27 Issue 4, p43 

    The article examines the role of PhosphatidylSerine (PS) in managing physical stress. Excessive heat and cold, excessive noise, high radiation, high vibration, intense exercise, all are physical stressors. It can go up quite a lot, but the healthiest response to exercise is that the heart rate...

    Background: Work-related heat stress assessments, the quantification of thermal loads and their physiological consequences have mostly been performed in non-tropical developed country settings. In many developing countries (many of which are also tropical), limited attempts have been made to...

    Spatial or temporal differences in environmental variables, such as temperature, are ubiquitous in nature and impose stress on organisms. This is especially true for organisms that are isothermal with the environment, such as insects. Understanding the means by which insects respond to...
