There are many heroes in this world, but not all of them are famous. Scientists, inventors and just everyday heroes are far less known than the latest movie star, a fact that is just a little sad.

Here are 10 people who have, in their own ways, saved countless lives and at times, the entire planet. They deserve to be known.

What you need to know about Glaucoma

Posted by M ws On 0 comments

Glaucoma is a medical condition of the eye where the optic nerve becomes damaged, and worsens over time. The buildup of pressure inside the eye, known as intraocular pressure, is the eye's inability to drain out the aqueous humor fluid properly. The optic nerve damages can lead to loss of vision and permanent blindness within a couple of years if left untreated.

The two main types of the disease are open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common of the pair. In the open-angle, the eye structures appear normal, but the fluid doesn't flow properly through the drain of the eyes, known as the trabecular meshwork.

Amazing Discovery!!!

GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Say "primate" and most people wouldn't think of a tree-dwelling, squirrel-like creature that weighs no more than a deck of playing cards, but a new study suggests that may perfectly describe humans' earliest primate ancestors.

Found in the same area of Montana that yielded the massive Tyrannosaurus rex, new ankle bones smaller than a penny provide the first fossil evidence that the oldest primates lived in trees.

That's important because living in trees gave those early primates access to food sources that other species lacked -- likely a critical factor in why primates succeeded in evolution where others may have failed.

What's Really Inside

The University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) has analyzed chicken nuggets to understand the contents of the processed food.

Researchers found that there is a lack of actual chicken meat. Only 40 to 50% of the chicken nugget was meat; the rest was a combination of fat, skin, sinew, blood vessels, nerves and bone fragments.

Richard deShazo, professor of medicine, pediatrics and immunology at UMMC said : “I was floored. I had read what other reports have said is in them and I didn’t believe it. I was astonished actually seeing it under the microscope. What has happened is that some companies have chosen to use an artificial mixture of chicken parts rather than low-fat chicken white meat, batter it up and fry it, and still call it chicken. It is really a chicken by-product high in calories, salt, sugar and fat that is a very unhealthy choice. Even worse, it tastes great and kids love it and it is marketed to them.”
