The Human Solution Donates Treadmill Desks to COMP-Northwest

The Human Solution Donates Treadmill Desks to COMP-Northwest

Lebanon, Oregon (PRWEB) April 09, 2015

Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest recently received a donation of three treadmill desks for students, faculty and staff use at the college.

Donated by The Human Solution, based in Austin, Texas, the treadmill desks are valued at more than ,100.

The treadmill desks offer an opportunity for medical students to get some exercise while continuing to balance their rigorous course load. COMP-Northwest medical students participate in curriculum from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. most days.

COMP-Northwest Chief Wellness Officer Robyn Dreibelbis, DO, has a treadmill desk at home and logs several miles on it every week.

“Thanks to the desk, I get to walk 10 miles a day now,” Dreibelbis said. “I am on this thing all day, and I got to thinking: Why aren’t these things in the medical school?”

Earlier this year, Dreibelbis and Ginger Cupit, a second-year medical student at COMP-Northwest, sent a request to The Human Solution asking for equipment to help students remain physically active.

“You see people’s physical health change when they are in medical school,” Cupit said. “We come in, and most of us were athletes, and then medical school happens and we just stop exercising. All that we want to do is to stop that progression and make it easier to work out.”

The three treadmill desks will be stationed across the COMP-Northwest campus, and students, faculty and staff will be able to sign up for hour-long time slots. A research team plans to collect data on treadmill desk use for a study on physical activity, Dreibelbis said.

The Human Solution is a manufacturer and retailer of ergonomic standing desks and office furniture. Founded in 2002 by certified professional ergonomist Jon Paulsen, the company strives to provide healthy and productive work environments. In addition to the UPLIFT Desk, which is The Human Solution’s featured sit-stand desk, the company offers many options for ergonomic seating, seating alternatives, standing mats, keyboard trays, monitor arms, and more.

Drones and the Question of “The Human”

Roger Berkowitz

In our headlong embrace of drone technology, we are forgetting to ask two basic questions: What is a drone? And what does it mean that the once obvious boundary separating human and machine intelligence is being diminished?

Why Human Rights Are Called Human Rights

Alan Sussman

No one can engage in commerce when deprived of liberty or autonomy. No one can create or imagine or love when consumed by fear. We need human rights to permit ourselves the possibility of being human.


The Future of the Human Rights Movement

Beth A. Simmons

More than twenty years have passed since the end of the Cold War, and the time when people spoke in triumphal terms of the global success of Western values is now a fading memory. The modern human rights movement is at a critical juncture in its history.

Against a World Court for Human Rights

Philip Alston

A World Court is not just an idea whose time has not yet come. The very idea fundamentally misconceives the nature of the challenges confronting an international community dedicated to eliminating major human rights violations

What Future for Human Rights?

James W. Nickel

The field of human rights covers many different beliefs, norms, institutions, and activities, and these may well have different futures. Some may flourish while others wither—along with the social movements that support them.

State Sovereignty and International Human Rights

Jack Donnelly

An increasingly robust international politics of human rights will provide valuable support to domestic advocates, help to impede backsliding, and in at least a few cases decisively tip the balance in favor of human rights at moments of transition.

The Future of Human Rights: A View from the United Nations

Andrew Gilmour

It is with respect to human rights that the UN has experienced some of its greatest shortcomings. The new “Rights up Front” plan may help remedy that deficiency.


From Empire to Sovereignty—and Back?

Jens Bartelson

How do empires and sovereign states relate, conceptually as well as historically? It is no coincidence that many historians of political thought are in the process of rewriting the history of sovereignty in light of its changing status.

Study: Latent CMV in Sperm May Cause Male Infertility; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR against the Latent Human Cytomegalovirus

Study: Latent CMV in Sperm May Cause Male Infertility; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR against the Latent Human Cytomegalovirus

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

The human cytomegalovirus (CMV) may be a cause of male infertility. In fact, “15-20% of infertile subjects are affected by semen infection (1).” Even if a man has no symptoms, he may have a latent infection in his sperm. In addition, this type of infection is associated with poor sperm quality (1). polyDNA therefore recommends that men ask their doctors for a blood test that identifies the existence of a latent infection with CMV. If positive, that individual should then speak to their doctors about Gene-Eden-VIR. This natural antiviral was designed to help the immune system target the latent CMV.

Researchers believe that latent viral infections are an underestimated etiological factor in male infertility (1). In other words, doctors often take the existence of a latent viral infection too lightly. As study authors wrote, “common sexually transmitted viruses are able to colonize semen, and thus, (should be) of major concern for reproductive specialists are (the) herpesviruses (HSV), human cytomegalovirus (CMV), and adeno-associated virus (AAV) (1).”

For example, CMV is able to infect most parts of a man’s sperm. “A recent study on HCMV-infected organotypic cultures identified the presence of viral antigens and viral particles in spermatogonia, spermatocytes, and in spermatids, producing lytic effects.” In other words, the virus began to actively replicate in all stages of sperm development.

Study authors noted that a latent infection with CMV can harm a man’s ability to reproduce, by affecting sperm parameters and function. Additionally, it can be transmitted to both mothers and babies in the uterus, causing potentially life-threatening conditions, especially for newborns (1).

“Several drugs are approved for the treatment of HCMV infections in immunocompromised individuals. These drugs include ganciclovir, its oral prodrug valganciclovir, cidofovir, foscavir, and fomivirsen. However, the use of these drugs in immunocompetent individuals is limited by their toxicity, poor oral bioavailability, modest efficacy, and the development of drug resistance.” (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, from September 2013) (2). There are also some natural antivirals like Gene-Eden-VIR.

“We recommend that individuals concerned about infertility get tested for the presence of a latent CMV infection. If positive, that person should talk to the doctor about Gene-Eden-VIR.” – Mike Evans, polyDNA

A study published on August 12, 2013 in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs, showed that Gene-Eden-VIR reduced herpes symptoms. Study authors wrote that, “Individuals infected with the herpes virus… reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR (2).” The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms (2).”

Research shows that an infection with CMV also causes a feeling of physical and mental fatigue. Since Gene-Eden-VIR is antiviral, a second post-marketing clinical study showed that Gene-Eden-VIR decreases the feeling of physical and mental fatigue. That study was published in March, 2014 in the journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy (3).

polyDNA is a biotechnology company that develops dietary supplements using the unique scientific method developed by Dr. Hanan Polansky, which is based on Computer Intuition.

In addition to his unique scientific method, Dr. Polansky published the highly acclaimed scientific discovery, called Microcompetition with Foreign DNA. The discovery explains how foreign DNA fragments, and specifically, DNA of latent viruses, cause most major diseases.

polyDNA developed Gene-Eden-VIR, an antiviral natural remedy that helps the immune system kill latent viruses.
