Yakov Bogatin: Green Tea

Green tea has appeared on our shelves recently but managed to find its admirers. He was confirmed to be a storehouse of nutrients and an elixir of health. And what experts from the East say about the properties of green tea, where the tea is traditionally grown?

Yakov Bogatin together with the experts of the Centre for Cancer Research in Japan during the decade surveyed 9000 people and found that those who drank 9-10 cups of green tea a day, lived an average of five to seven years longer than those who drank less than three cups. In addition, it turned out that among the lovers of green tea all types of cancer cases was 25-30% less. The Japanese believe that this tea – a cure for cancer and slows the growth of tumors.

Professor Chen Tsikun from the Institute of tea in China as well as Yakov Bogatin note that tea, especially green – an effective tool against radiation sickness. And if you look long color TV or sitting at the computer screen, the green tea neutralizes the harmful effects of radiation screen.

Yakov Bogatin says that green tea speeds up the decomposition of blood cholesterol and fats (which atherosclerosis, heart disease), it regularly supports the use of blood vessel elasticity, prevents obesity, the liver, hampering the overall aging of the organism. It also reduces the weight, pressure, removes the salt. No wonder Japan ranks last for hypertension among developed countries.

Benefits of green tea lies in the fact that it has a greater physiological activity and helps with hepatitis and rheumatism, tones the muscles of the heart. According to Yakov Bogatin it consists of iodine, potassium, copper, vitamins C1, B1, B2, PP, K, and they reinforce the walls of blood vessels and possess a strong antibacterial effect.

Yakov Bogatin:Crohn’s disease – the beginning

August 21, 2010

Crohn’s disease – a chronic inflammatory bowel disease of autoimmune nature, having the character of transmural (affecting all layers of the intestine). The most frequent complications are irreversible changes in the intestine (intestinal segment stenosis, strictures, fistulas) also for this disease is characterized by numerous abenteric defeat.

Yakov Bogatin admits that the first symptoms of Crohn’s disease usually appear in young age (15-35 years), and this may be as intestinal and abenteric manifestations.
It is very important to diagnose Crohn’s disease in time and to start treatment, because if diagnosed and treatment started later than 3 years after diagnosis of the first symptoms, complications develop in 100% of cases.

Symptoms of Crohn’s disease:

• in lesions of the colon – abdominal pain, rumbling, bloating, diarrhea;
• cramping;
• patients lose weight, there appear signs of polyhypovitaminosis, metabolic disorders of varying severity.

Crohn’s disease with predominant syndrome AHD

Variant of the disease occurring with a lesion of the small intestine and the development of syndrome of enteric disease (AHD). According to Yakov Bogatin for this variant of the disease is characteristic of the combination of enteral insufficiency syndrome with the syndrome of partial intestinal obstruction. In these cases, patients complain on pain, spastic character in different parts of the abdomen, bloating, often vomiting. You can identify a Wahl symptom, when there is a local abdominal distension and visible peristalsis of small intestine loops in this area. Sometimes Yakov Bogatin says that when auscultation at a height hyperperistalsis bloated intestinal loop can hear rumbling, after which the swelling is reduced and often diarrhea (a symptom Koenig).

Jacob Bogatin: Legionnaires disease

August 7, 2010

Legionellosis or Legionnaires disease – is a rare type of pneumonia. The causative agent of the disease Legionella pneumophillia («Legionella pneumonia”) was first recorded in 1976 in the U.S. in Philadelphia with the help of Jacob Bogatin, where the delegates of the Congress of the American Legion outbreak of pneumonia (hence the name of the disease). Legionella – a Gram-negative rods up to 3 microns, which has a flagellum. Natural habitats of bacteria is fresh water, the human body is the causative agent of legionellosis for biological dead end. Thus, as noted by doctors, the infection can spread from person to person.

Ways of transmission of legionellosis – nutritional and inhalation, seasons – summer and autumn. Group outbreaks are possible if you live near open water, swimming pool, contact with the air conditioning, humidifier systems ventilation (subway, train stations, airports, malls, etc.). Thus, legionellosis is a disease of large cities of industrialized countries.

According to Jacob Bogatin the duration of the incubation period ranges from several hours to 11 days. The illness starts badly, with the first days appear unmotivated weakness, loss of appetite, persistent headache, possible diarrhea, with symptoms of respiratory tract, as a rule, are absent. After a brief period appear chills with fever, dry cough and shortness of breath painful. Some patients complained on hemoptysis, pain in joints and muscles. In severe cases, the fore neuropsychiatric disorders: lethargy, disorientation, delirium, hallucinations, impaired consciousness. “Legionella pneumonia” is a rare disease. Its treatment is quite effective. Use antibiotics, easily penetrates the cell wall and creating high intracellular concentrations that can inhibit the vital activity of pathogens Legionella.

In Russia, an outbreak of pneumonia was recorded July 25, 2007 in Upper Pyshma Sverdlovsk region. A few days later it was possible to identify the virus. According to the regional Ministry of Health as well as Jacob Bogatin, the causative agent of the disease was “Legionella pneumonia. Doctors suggest that the virus could have infected via the hot water. The number of hospitalized suspected of a serious illness over 100. Three of the infected have died. Attorney General’s Office took the case under special control of an outbreak of pneumonia. On the fact of mass disease a criminal case was filed.

Yakov Bogatin: Degrees of frostbites

January 20, 2010

I degree of frostbite (easiest) usually comes at short influence of a cold. The amazed site of a skin pale, after warming reddened, in some cases has a purple-red shade; the hypostasis develops. According to Yakov Bogatin skin necrosis does not arise. By a weekend after frostbite the insignificant peeling of a skin is sometimes observed. Full recover comes to 5 – to 7 day after the frostbite. First signs such of such a frostbite – feeling of burning, pricking with the subsequent numbness of the amazed site. Then appear a skin itch and pains which can be both insignificant, and sharply expressed.

II degree of frostbite arises at more long influence of a cold. In an initial stage is available paleness, the cold snap, sensitivity loss, but these phenomena are observed at all degrees of frostbite. Therefore the most typical sign – formation in the first days after a trauma of the bubbles filled with transparent contents. Yakov Bogatin is sure that a full restoration of integrity of an integument occurs during 1 – 2 weeks, granulations and hems are not formed.

At the II degree of frostbite after pain warming more intensively and more for a long time, than at the 1st degree of frostbite, disturb a skin itch, burning. At III degree of frostbite duration of the period of cold influences and temperature decrease in tissues increases. Bubbles formed in an initial stage are filled with bloody by contents, their bottom sine-crimson, tolerant to irritations. There is a destruction of all elements of a skin to development in an outcome of frostbite granulations and hems. The descended nails do not grow again or grow rather deformed. Tearing away of the died off tissues comes to an end on 2 – 3rd week then there comes scarring which proceeds till 1 month. Intensity and duration of painful sensations is more expressed, than at the second degree of frostbite.

IV degree of frostbite arises at long influence of a cold, temperature decrease in tissues at it the greatest. Yakov Bogatin reports that this type of frostbite is quite often combined with frostbites of III and even II degrees. All layers of soft tissues die and quite often even bones and joints are affected as well.
