Healthcare management through mitigation of COVID-19 pandemic with leafy vegetables

TLDR
The significance of nutrition and the use of leafy vegetables to boost up the immunity system in human beings is explored and reliable dietary strategies about food safety and nutrition to survive COVID-19 pandemic around the world, especially in India are provided.

Effect of Dose and Administration Period of Seed Cake of Genetically Modified and Non-Modified Flax on Selected Antioxidative Activities in Rats

TLDR
The administration of diets with 30% addition of flaxseed cake for 90 days improved the antioxidant status in rats and selected parameters of their health status were not affected.

Pathological changes in growing dogs fed on a balanced cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) diet

  • B. P. Kamalu
  • Biology, Medicine
    British Journal of Nutrition
  • 1993
TLDR
It was concluded that the observed changes which occurred when the gari diet was consumed were not entirely due to cyanide, and the histology of some metabolically active tissues, namely liver, kidney, myocardium, testis and adrenal gland, was studied.

Pattern of enzyme changes in rabbits administered linamarin or potassium cyanide.

TLDR
The profound elevation in rhodanese activity observed in the linamarin and cyanide treated rabbits indicated the attempt of the tissues to detoxify cyanide and that intact lin amarin could be hydrolysed in vivo was a significant finding.

Comparison of the effects of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) organic cyanide and inorganic cyanide on muscle and bone development in a Nigerian breed of dog

TLDR
There was retardation of muscle development in the gari-fed dogs and both forms of dietary cyanides, however, had no adverse effect on bone development.

The effect of a nutritionally-balanced cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) diet on endocrine function using the dog as a model 1. Pancreas

TLDR
It is indicated that a hypoinsulinaemia developed which was more severe in the animals fed on gari than in the dogs fed on the rice+cyanide diet and that the condition was not related to the level of plasma thiocyanate or the histopathology observed.

Serum rhodanese in goitre and calcific pancreatitis of tropics.

TLDR
The presence of adequate amounts of rhodanese indicates that goitre and chronic pancreatitis are not produced by impaired cyanide detoxification.

Severe protein energy malnutrition in Lesotho, death and survival in hospital, clinical findings.

TLDR
The findings confirm the need for intensive management of severe PEM in Lesotho and confirm the high mortality despite hospitalisation in children with marasmus and kwashiorkor.

Digestibility of a nutritionally-balanced cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) diet and its effect on growth in young male dogs

  • B. P. Kamalu
  • Biology, Medicine
    British Journal of Nutrition
  • 1991
TLDR
It was concluded that growth proceeded normally when a balanced gari diet or a balanced rice diet containing 130 g crude protein/kg was fed to dogs, but growth was retarded when a mixture of rice + cyanide diet and total serum T3 concentration became greatly depressed.
