Humans have a lot more in common than we might be inclined to believe. In fact, more than 99 percent of our genes are exactly the same from one person to the next. In other words, the diversity we see within the human population—including traits like eye color, height, and blood type—is due to genetic differences that account for less than 1 percent. More specifically, variations of the same gene, called alleles, are responsible for these differences.

One person dies by su***de every 40 seconds and for each death, there are more than 20 su***de attempts. Every death is a tragedy for family friends and colleagues. Stigma surrounding mental disorders, lack of awareness of su***de as a major health problem, and a taboo in many societies to openly discussing it, means many people contemplating su***de are not getting adequate help. If you believe that a friend or family member is suicidal, you can play a role in su***de prevention by pointing out the alternatives, showing that you care, and getting a doctor or psychologist involved. WHO in collaboration with global partners, will launch the 40 seconds of action campaign to raise awareness of su***de around the world and methods of prevention. Campaign efforts will continue throughout 10 October on World Mental health Day, with su***de prevention as this year’s theme.


An electrocardiogram, also known as an ECG or EKG, is a painless, simple test that records the electrical activity of a person's heart. Scientists have trained an artificial intelligence tool to predict s*x and estimate age from electrocardiogram readouts. They suggest that, with further development, the tool could soon be helping doctors to assess the overall health of their patients. "Being able to more accurately assess overall health status may help doctors determine which patients they should examine further to determine if there are asymptomatic or currently silent diseases that could benefit from early diagnosis and intervention," Dr. Kapa explains.

Taking a cold shower can increase the body's metabolism making a person feel more alert, triggers the body's immune system & boosts one's moods.

A person can start by taking a warm shower and then switch the water to cold for a brief time.

Nerve transfer surgery offers an exciting new option, offering individuals with paralysis the possibility of regaining arm and hand functions to perform everyday tasks and giving them greater independence and the ability to participate more easily in family and work life.
13 adults with complete paralysis benefited from a nerve transfer surgery during an intervention research. Dr. Natasha Van Zyl and her colleagues recruited 16 adults with an average age of 27 years who had experienced Spinal Cord Injury to the neck less than 18 months before the study, mostly as a result of traffic accidents or sports-related injuries. Two years after the intervention, the young adults could feed themselves, brush their teeth and hair, put on makeup, write, and use electronic devices with help of intensive physical therapy.

Developed in Kenya, improving healthcare globally.

Healthcare providers at our core, Xelpha’s founders met at the junction of medicine and technology.

Through their work with patients in numerous resource-limited environments from South Sudan to Western Kenya all the way to the USA, they identified an underlying thread impacting the quality of healthcare being provided: information.

The quality of decisions made in healthcare - whether by providers or by patients - are limited by the quality of information factored into those decisions. In resource-limited places, there is a healthcare informatics gap, stemming from a lack of access, accuracy, completeness, efficacy, organization, and liquidity of information, resulting in poor quality healthcare.

With the belief that healthcare should be accessible to all people globally irrespective of geography or economy, our founders developed a solution to facilitate engagement with the metrics of a healthy life.
