Your Blood Pressure According To Your Age The Archives of Internal Medicine published online a study conducted on over 2,000 seniors. This research found that high blood pressure can actually be a positive thing, except if you are a frail person in elder years when it is a real health issue. Yet, even if the blood pressure is completely normal, you should always take care of it, and incorporate some dietary changes, in order to prevent an increase in it, and support the health of the heart, and the entire organism.

In the United States alone, 1.25 million people suffer from type 1 diabetes. A vaccine used over 100 years ago for tuberculosis (bacillus Calmette-Guerin ) has shown promise in reversing this disease. This vaccine is now commonly used for treating bladder cancer and is considered to be safe.
An announcement made yesterday at the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association said that the FDA will test the vaccine on 150 people who are in an advanced stage of type one diabetes.
The body of a man with sort 1 diabetes does not deliver insulin because of thesafeframeworkwrecking thecells that make insulin .Immune systemmicroorganisms are delivered ,and these cellsmake issues in t
hepancreatic islet’s, where insulin is created . The antibody worksby wiping outthese White bloodcells . Patientswith diabetes infused with the immunization
sawan expansionofthe levels of a substance called tumorputrefaction component . Theexpandedlevel of TNF in theframework devastates the Immunesystemmicroorganisms that are preventingthe creation of insulin. In a past trial ,patients were infused with thetuberculosis immunizationtwice inside a four-weektimes the span . The outcomes demonstrated thatthe hazardous Whitebloodcells were gone , and a few people even started to emit insulin all alone ..
Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Immunobiology Laboratory in Boston, is very excited about the results the BCG vaccine has been showing.
“In the phase I (preliminary) trial we demonstrated a statistically significant response to BCG, but our goal in (this trial) is to create a lasting therapeutic response. We will be working again with people who have had type 1 diabetes for many years. This is not a prevention trial; instead, we are trying to create a regimen that will treat even advanced disease.”
This new five-year trial will begin this late spring . The individuals that areselected will extend for over agesfrom 18 to 60-years of age . The trial willutilize the same configuration as wasutilizedbefore by infusingpatients twiceinside a four-week times frame . Patients will then haveone infusiona year for thefollowing fouryears .
Not all diabetes experts are confident that this treatment will work. Robert Sobel, an assistant professor of endocrinology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, explains why he is skeptical.
“I think it’s a stretch to say this would have a huge impact on the millions plus type I diabetes patients in this country. We would love to do something to preserve or repopulate their beta cell mass. Historically, we have watched it dwindle and have not been able to do something (in time).”
Time will tell if this vaccine will become a viable treatment option for type 1 diabetes or not.

Manchester United are considering a £30 million move for Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater, according to The Sun.
The 26-year-old began his career at Old Trafford but was sold to the Foxes in 2012 after failing to make the breakthrough at United.
However, Jose Mourinho wants to bring Drinkwater back to Manchester and is willing to offer £150,000-a-week but may have to wait until the summer if Leicester make it through the Champions League group stages.
Enzo Zidane makes Cristiano Ronaldo look silly in Real Madrid training (video)
Los Blancos have had an impressive start to the new season despite the fact the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale (to a lesser extent) have missed La Liga matches.
Real Madrid also produced a late comeback to beat Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League last week and set a new club record at Espanyol on Sunday. See graphic below:
Real Madrid’s recent form in La Liga
Ronaldo not too chuffed
Enzo Zidane has been training with the Real Madrid first team for some time now.
The oldest of Zinedine Zidane’s sons, Enzo has yet to establish himself in the Real Madrid first team but is in and around the first team squad.
The clip below features Real Madrid in a “Rondo” where they are playing quick passes to each other in a circle.
Plenty of Real Madrid’s biggest players are training, including Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and James Rodriguez.
Chasing the ball are Cristiano Ronaldo and Mateo Kovacic.
Enzo Zidane has plenty of touches of the ball before he plays a dummy on Ronaldo that makes the Portuguese superstar look a little silly.
On the audio, you can clearly hear some of the best players on the planet respond with an “ooooh!”
Boss - Why I liked Lucas’ second goal
Arsène Wenger was pretty pleased on Tuesday night, after his team convincingly beat Nottingham Forest 4-0 in the third round of the EFL Cup.
The boss spoke to Arsenal Player afterwards, and here's what he said.
on whether he is satisfied with the result…
I am, because it was a good team performance played at a very high pace. We played a very quick technical game and we went always forward and tried to score goals. We played the game well out from the back. Overall it’s a performance that deserves great credit and I would like to congratulate the players tonight - it was fantastic.
The second goal has technical quality and desire, determination and fighting spirit. I liked the second goal for that, I liked as well the goal he made for Oxlade-Chamberlain. I’m very pleased for him.
He’s in good form at the moment, physically. It’s the first time in a long period that he has been ready to compete and he had a little bit of a slow start in this game but became stronger and stronger. I was very pleased for him with the way he finished the game.
on Akpom and Reine-Adelaide…
You forget a little bit Ainsley Maitland-Niles, I think [that was] the first time he played right back [in the first team]. All three have done extremely well and I would like to congratulate them because I am very happy with their performances today.
We have four days to prepare for the game, let’s focus on that now. The performance tonight shows that the players who played at Hull need to be on their toes and that's what we want - competition for places. The performance tonight shows that competition exists, really.

Match preview: Northampton v United
How can I follow the game? Wednesday’s EFL Cup third-round tie at Sixfields kicks off at 19:45 BST on Wednesday and will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports. MUTV's live programme begins at 19:00 BST and subscribers can watch the game in full from midnight on the evening of the match. You can also keep up with all the action as it happens via ManUtd.com's live match blog and by following our official Twitter account @ManUtd.
A chance for United to bounce back? Yes, the EFL (or good old League) Cup may not be the Reds’ number one priority this season but the team will be determined to put an end to a run of three defeats in the last week, the most recent of which came at Watford on Sunday. Those losses have undoubtedly been disappointing but manager Jose Mourinho is refusing to overreact, just as he didn’t get carried away with his side’s four consecutive wins at the start of the campaign. Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata have also issued rallying cries since the weekend.
We’ll be favourites to win this game, won’t we? That’s true, but nobody in the United camp will be underestimating Northampton Town. Having been promoted as convincing champions from League Two last season, they’re 11th in the early League One table and their 31-game unbeaten league run stretching back to December last year has only just ended - with Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Chesterfield. Northampton knocked out West Bromwich Albion on penalties in the last round of this competition and manager Rob Page said this weekend: "We’ve now got a fantastic game to look forward to and I guarantee we will be ready for Manchester United on Wednesday."
Who’ll play for United? It remains to be seen. Mourinho made eight changes for the Europa League trip to Feyenoord and then another five for the reversal at Vicarage Road, so may be inclined to shuffle his pack again for this tie, which could also present an opportunity for some of the younger members of the squad. On the injury front, Anthony Martial will be assessed after being forced off in the first half at Watford, while Phil Jones is out for up to a month with a knee injury.
Who should I look out for in Northampton's team? Journeyman striker Alex Revell, who joined from MK Dons in the summer, scored the late equaliser to force extra-time against West Brom and has netted four goals in total so far this term. They have some players with top-flight experience, including midfielder Matt Taylor, while former United trainee Kenji Gorre has been a regular for the Cobblers since joining on loan from Swansea City in the close season. He converted the match-winning penalty at West Brom's expense and said afterwards: "When it left my boot I knew it was in and I started running before it hit the net - it was crazy."
Haven’t we been to Sixfields in the fairly recent past? Indeed we have. United beat Northampton 3-0 in the FA Cup fourth round in January 2004, with strikes from Mikael Silvestre and Diego Forlan sandwiching a Chris Hargreaves own goal. That was the latest of our four meetings with the Cobblers, which also include an 8-2 FA Cup win there in 1970, in which George Best famously scored six goals.
Which are the other stand-out ties in this round? There are four all-Premier League encounters: Leicester City v Chelsea (on Tuesday night), Southampton v Crystal Palace, Swansea City v holders Manchester City and Stoke City v Hull City. The lowest-ranked side left in the competition are League Two club Accrington Stanley, who are away at West Ham United.
If we go through, how can I follow the fourth-round draw? The draw will take place straight after our match at Northampton is completed, so around 21:30 BST on Wednesday night - or later if extra-time is required. We'll publish the details on ManUtd.com and on Twitter (@ManUtd).
Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo to Compete for 2 Awards After Ballon d'Or Change
The domination of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ballon d'Or sweepstakes could be drawing to a close after it was announced the prizegiving for Player of the Year will revert back to two awards.
The Independent's Jack Austin reported on Tuesday that France Football's relationship with FIFA will cease this year, meaning players will once again compete for two gongs—the Ballon d'Or and the FIFA World Player of the Year.
France Football partnered with FIFA in 2010 as part of a £13 million deal, and since then, Ronaldo (two wins) and Messi (four) have been the only players to add the Ballon d'Or to their trophy cabinets.
The move has been speculated by some as one to loosen Ronaldo and Messi's grip on world football's top individual accolade, and Goal.com's Robin Bairner pointed out whom French daily L'Equipe are pushing to win:
France and Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann helped his country reach the final of UEFA Euro 2016, while also helping Los Rojiblancos to the UEFA Champions League final and LaLiga title contention last term.
Meanwhile, Tancredi Palmeri of beIN Sports said Ronaldo should take home his third Ballon d'Or after leading Portugal to the Euro 2016 crown, with Real Madrid team-mate and fellow Champions League winner Gareth Bale in second:
My 2016 Ballon d'Or— Tancredi Palmeri (@tancredipalmeri) September 20, 2016
The Ballon d'Or ceremony will now also take place before the end of 2016, rather than in January, as has been the case for the past six years.
That counts among one of numerous changes coming into effect this year, and the Sun's Andrew Richardson provided a statement from France Football detailing the rest of the alterations:
After six years in which captains, managers and journalists chose the winner, the rules will change a little for 2016. The champion will be selected, like before, by a jury of journalists from all around the world.
Here are the main novelties:
The striker returned to Real Madrid this summer from Juventus but has admitted Antonio Conte tried to bring him to Stamford Bridge and made "a very good offer"
Alvaro Morata has revealed how Chelsea attempted to bring him to the Premier League this summer and wanted to make him the most expensive Spanish player ever.
The Spain international returned to Madrid from Juventus after Zinedine Zidane's side activated the buy-back option in his Juve contract, after they had sold him to the Serie A giants two years prior.
There was some suggestion that the European champions were only re-signing Morata in order to sell him on at a profit, with Chelsea heavily linked with his signature.
And Morata confirmed that new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte - his former boss at Juve - was interested in a reunion at Stamford Bridge that he claims would have broken the transfer record for a Spanish player.
"Chelsea showed the most interest," he told Sport Bild. "Antonio Conte had already signed me for Juventus.
