Swedish to English: "Diabetes, No Thanks" (by Lars Litzfeldt, see Amazon)
General field: Medical
Detailed field: Biology (-tech,-chem,micro-)
Source text - Swedish
Den vettigaste förklaring jag har sett till hur och varför man får åderförkalkning och därmed hjärtinfarkt tycker jag att Uffe Ravnskov har kommit med. Som nämndes uppstår en hjärtinfarkt då ett kärl i hjärtat blir så tilltäppt att blod inte kan ta sig fram. Tilltäppandet beror emellertid inte på den befintliga åderförkalkningen, utan på att en liten bubbla i kärlväggen, en så kallad vulnerabel plack, brister.Kärlväggsbubblorna, som varit kända sedan många år, är enligt Ravnskov småbölder. I praktiken går det till så att vi andas in virus och bakterier, vi äter dem och de kan ta sig in via ögonen eller genom sår. Det är de här främmande mikroberna - virusen och bakterierna alltså - som är själva grunden för infarkten.....
-----------------------------------------------------
Hithörande patienter måste lära sig, att förstå sin sjukdom, och då denna är i utomordentligt hög grad influerad av dieten, är det likaledes för den sockersjuke nödvändigt att förstå innebörden av de många gånger rigorösa bestämmelser läkaren förordnar angående den sjukes diet.........
------------------------------------------------
Det är ändå klokt att inte frossa i protein då ett stort överskott av protein omvandlas till glukos och därmed höjer blodsockret Om njurskadan är allvarlig kan det även bidra till höga halter av skadliga kväveprodukter i blodet.
Translation - English
The most reasonable explanation I have heard regarding how and why people develop
atherosclerosis and suffer subsequent heart attacks was presented by Uffe Ravnskov. As previously mentioned, a heart attack occurs when a blood vessel in the heart becomes sufficiently obstructed to prevent blood from passing through. The obstruction is actually not caused by the hardening of the arteries, but rather when a small bubble (a so- called vulnerable plaque) in the blood vessel wall, bursts.These bubbles in the blood vessel walls (which we have known about for many years) are, according to Ravnskov, boils. In reality, we continually inhale viruses and bacteria; we eat them in our food and they can gain entry via our eyes or through wounds. These foreign microbes - viruses and bacteria - constitute the actual basis of a heart attack, or infarct......
---------------------------------------------------
These patients must learn to understand their disease, and as it is to an exceptionally high degree influenced by the diet, it is similarly essential for the diabetic to understand the significance of the often rigorous regulations prescribed by the physician regarding the patient's diet........
-----------------------------------
Eating too much protein is still not wise, as excess of dietary protein is converted to glucose and will elevate blood sugar levels. If kidney damage is serious, it can also contribute to high levels of hazardous nitrogen products in the blood.

Mary Laskers engagemang i kolesterolfrågan hade sitt ursprung långt tillbaka i tiden. Redan i början av 1950-talet hjälpte hon, med egna pengar, forskaren John W. Gofman att finansiera en enorm centrifug. Denna möjliggjorde upptäckten av att kolesterol som ju är vatten-olösligt,transporteras i blodet med hjälp av olika transport- proteiner tillsammans med fetter (96; 70). Detta ledde fram till upptäckten att en av dessa fraktioner, som transporteras av ett protein - LDL - decennier senare kom att kallas »det onda« kolesterolet och en annan fraktions transportprotein - HDL - kom samtidigt att benämnas »det goda«. Benämningarna kom väl till pass när ett nytt läkemedel skulle
lanseras, vars specifika effekter bäst kunde illustreras med det som alla sagor handlar om, nämligen kampen mellan det onda och det goda.
Translation - English
Mary Lasker's involvement in the cholesterol question was rooted in events long in the past. In the early 1950s, using her own money, she helped researcher John W. Gofman finance an enormous centrifuge. This enabled the discovery that cholesterol is water insoluble and is transported in the blood with the help of various transport proteins together with fats (96; 70). This led to the discovery that one of these fractions was transported by a protein - LDL - and was decades later named »bad« cholesterol, while another fraction, transported by the protein - HDL - was simultaneously named » good « cholesterol. This nomenclature was quite convenient when a new drug was to be released, the properties of which could best be illustrated with the
elements of any good story, namely, the good against the bad.

Augsta levonorgestrela koncentrācija endometrijā samazina endometrija estrogēnu un progesterona receptoru skaitu, kas padara endometriju nejutīgu pret cirkulējošo estradiolu, vērojama izteikta antiproliferatīva darbība.
Translation - English
The high levonorgestrel concentrations in the endometrium down-regulate endometrial estrogen and progesterone receptors, rendering the endometrium insensitive to circulating estradiol, and a strong antiproliferative effect is seen.

Kompositionerna är effektiva som inhibitorer av fasta avsättningar och korrosionsinhibitorer men är fördelaktiga också ur miljösynpunkt, eftersom de är icke-toxiska, inte innehåller några tungmetaller och innehåller ringa mängd fosfor.
Translation - English
The compositions are effective as inhibitors of solid deposits and as corrosion inhibitors, but are also advantageous from an environmental perspective because they are non- toxic, do not contain heavy metals and contain only insignificant amounts of phosphorous.
