Honey, the Natural Ingredient that Normalizes Your Blood Pressure with No Side Effects, According to Human Studies

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the treatment of hypertension, according to studies.

Hypertension is a condition of abnormally high blood pressure. It is a member of the cluster conditions associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood.

According to the statistics provided by the American Heart Association, approximately, 103 million U.S. adults have high blood pressure, or 1 in 2 adults in the US have the syndrome.

Bad eating habit, unhealthy lifestyle and certain medical conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, and sleep apnea are some of the risk factors of high blood pressure.

However, some researchers suggested that the prevalence of obesity over past few decades may have a strong impact on the increased high blood pressure risk in the US.

Dr. Shu-Zhong Jiang and colleagues in examining the obesity and the high blood pressure risk wrote, "Obesity is a major risk for essential hypertension, diabetes and other morbidity that contribute to the development of kidney disease because it mainly increases tubular reabsorption to impair pressure natriuresis and cause volume expansion,...".

And, "Additionally, obesity causes cardiovascular and renal diseases through several mechanisms including hypertension, hyperglycemia, inflammation, dyslipidemia, and atherosclerosis, which are disorders that can coexist, particularly in the presence of excess visceral fat to cause metabolic syndrome () and are characterized by alteration in fat metabolism through lipid accumulation".

The results strongly suggested that obesity not only is associated with hypertension but also is the major contributor to the risk of other chronic diseases.

Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The rich golden liquid It is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Researchers on finding a herbal remedy for the treatment of hypertension with no side effects examined the honey effect on blood pressure and heart rate.

The study included 50 in healthy male subjects, who were given 20 ml of honey to consume and their systolic SBP, DBP and HR were measured at different intervals; 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 60 minutes after the intake of honey.

Honey treatment significantly (p = 0.05) decreased SBP from 117.80±0.88 to 110.20±2.14 after 15 minutes of honey intake.

The blood pressure of the honey treatment was maintained as the reading after 30 minutes of honey consumption was 111.33±2.14, and 60 minutes of honey intake was 110.4±2.08.

The findings clearly suggested that honey has a short-term effect in reducing blood pressure in healthy individuals.

In order to reveal more information about honey anti-high blood pressure activity, researchers investigated the honey effect on blood pressure and heart rate in healthy male and female.

The study included 100 healthy male and female participants who were given 20ml honey orally administered. The basal systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and heart rate (HR) before injection of honey were taken as the control values.

Diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured at 15, 30, 60 minutes with a digital sphygmomanometer and analog sphygmomanometer as a check.

The results showed that mean SBP decreased significantly in female compared to male at control, after 15, 30 and 60 minutes of oral administration of 20ml of honey. 

DBP decreased significantly in female compared to male at control, after 15 minutes and 60 minutes of oral administration of 20ml of honey and HR decreased (p=.05) significantly.

The results indicated that honey has a strong effect in reducing the blood pressure in female compared to the male counterpart, probably due to hormone expression.

Taken altogether, honey may be considered a function remedy for the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure, particularly in the female, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.

Honey, the Heart Friendly Natural Remedy

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the treatment of heart disease, according to studies.

Heart diseases are a medical condition associated with any disruption of blood vessels and heart function.

There are 5 types of heart diseases, including
* Heart disease affected by the arteries to the heart, such as coronary artery heart disease
* heart disease affected by heart valves function in regulating blood flow such as valvular heart disease
* heart disease  affected the electrical conduction such as arrhythmias
* Heart disease affected by heart muscles such as cardiomyopathy
and * Congenital heart disease caused by heart defect at birth

According to the statistics, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US, approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease every year.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) kills over 370,000 people annually.

Most common heart disease in North America is CHD, the type of heart disease caused by plaque buildup on artery walls, leading to narrow, thickens and stiffens arteries. Some researchers suggested that the causes of plaque build up on the arterial wall were the results of several factors including an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking.

Dr. Sonia S. Anand and colleagues in examing the risk of heart disease associated with poor diet wrote, "Based on the current evidence, the optimal dietary pattern to reduce CVD is one that emphasizes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, poultry, and moderate dairy and heart-healthy vegetable oil intake; this pattern will likely reduce the CVD risk by about a third".

And, "This healthy dietary pattern needs also to be low in refined grains, added sugars, trans-fats, SSBs, and red and processed meats. The traditional Mediterranean-type diet provides a well-tested prototype for this healthy dietary pattern".

Researchers not only mentioned that the Western diet pattern associated with the risk of CVD indirectly but also suggested that the diet pattern including the intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, poultry, and moderate dairy and heart-healthy vegetable oil in reducing the risk of CVD.

Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The rich golden liquid It is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of heart disease investigated the
honey and its polyphenols cardioprotective activity.

According to the epidemiological studies, regular intake of phenolic compounds is associated with reducing the risk of heart diseases.

Honey exerted coronary heart disease protective effects by the expression of phenolic compounds through several mechanisms, including mainly antithrombotic, anti-ischemic, anti-oxidant, and vasorelaxant effects.

Furthermore, the effect of flavonoids found in honey decreased the risk of coronary heart disease by improving coronary vasodilatation, decreasing the ability of platelets in the blood to clot, and preventing low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) from oxidization.

The results clearly suggested the preventive role of polyphenols of honey against the onset of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).

In order to reveal more information about the honey cardioprotective activity, researchers examined the honey effects on blood sugar, body weight, lipid profile, C-reactive protein, nitric oxide, proinflammatory prostaglandins, and homocysteine. 

By examing the growing evidence and scientific data, researchers found honey not only demonstrates in the treatment of diabetes, HTN, dyslipidemia, obesity but also has a potential effect against CVD.

Taken altogether, honey may be considered a function remedy for the prevention and treatment of heart disease, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.

Honey Prevents and Relieves Hangover, Scientists Reveal

By Kyle J. Norton 

The traditional medicine suggested that intake of one spoonful honey before and after a drinking party may prevent a hangover. 

According to Dr. Zhou, the scientist in the field of TCM, honey processed a cooling, hydrating and revitalizing properties and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for purifying stimulant and a tonic against dizziness and hangover-upset stomachs.

 Hangover is unpleasant physiological and psychological effects caused by the (over) consumption of alcohol, according to studies.

Most common symptoms of a hangover include a headache, drowsiness, concentration problems,  dizziness, fatigue, and gastrointestinal discomforts.

The exact causes of a hangover are unknown. The most common factor associated with a hangover is the accumulation of acetaldehyde, a highly toxic substance.

The conversion of acetaldehyde is a chemical process as a result of enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) which metabolizes the alcohol intake to acetaldehyde.

Depending on the individual variations in alcohol metabolism, some people may experience worse hangover symptoms than others.

Hangover symptoms are affected by alcohol tolerance which is measured by the bodily responses to the functional effects of ethanol in alcoholic beverages.

CYP2E1, one of the genes has been linked with alcohol tolerance. However, people with high alcohol tolerance are also more likely to develop alcoholism.

Dr. Claire Heit,, the lead scientist in the evaluation of the role of CYP2E1 in alcohol metabolism wrote, "Acetaldehyde (the direct metabolite of ethanol oxidation) contributes to many aspects of the behavioral effects of ethanol. Given acetaldehyde cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier, its concentration in the CNS is primarily determined by local production from ethanol".

And, "Catalase and cytochrome P450 2E1(CYP2E1) represent the major enzymes in the CNS that catalyze ethanol oxidation. CYP2E1 is expressed abundantly within the microsomes of certain brain cells and is localized to particular brain regions".

Honey, the rich golden liquid is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Scientists on finding a natural and potential compound for hangover relief examined the traditional medicine use of honey for preventing drunkenness and relieving hangover symptoms.

Intoxicated male mice selected to the study were assigned randomly either to low or high doses of lychee flower honey (2.19 or 4.39 g/kg body weight, respectively) that were single orally administrated 30 min before the ethanol intoxication of mice, followed by recording the locomotor activity by autonomic activity instrument and observing the climbing ability after alcohol or 2.19 g/kg honey that was single orally administrated 5 min after the ethanol intoxication of mice, followed by determining the ethanol concentration in mice blood.

Both doses of honey increased the autonomic activity of alcoholized mice.

Futhermore, intoxicated mice treated with 2.19 g/kg honey showed a decrease significantly of the blood ethanol concentration.

Additional differentiation suggested that The anti-intoxication activity of honey is attributed to the effect of the fructose contained in the honey.

Interestingly, honey inhibited hangover symptoms without affecting the levels of oxidative stress and antioxidant enzymes produced by the host.

The results showed that honey processed a direct anti-hangover activity in a dose time-dependent manner.

Taken altogether, honey may be considered a functional remedy to relieve hangover symptoms caused by alcoholic intoxication, pending to the confirmation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Sinigrin May Be The Potential Anti Atherosclerosis Chemical Compound, According to Studies

By Kyle J. Norton

Sinigrin may be used as a bioactive ingredient for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, according to studies.

Atherosclerosis is a medical condition caused by plaques accumulated on the wall of the arteries, leading to narrowing the arteries in transporting oxygenated blood to the heart and other parts of the body.

Depending on the blood obstruction, atherosclerosis can induce different types of heart disease and stroke.

Plaque is the make of cholesterols, calcium, and other toxic substances, including cadmium.

According to the statistics provided by Atherosclerosis Open Acess, 32% of deaths account for atherosclerosis. 13.8% prevalence is among adults of 20 years and above. In 2010, coronary heart disease mortality rate was about 60%.

Risk factors of atherosclerosis include high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes,  being overweight or obese, unhealthy diet,  family history of heart disease and physical inactivity, particularly smoking.

Some researchers suggested that since cholesterol make up a big part in the plaque, an unhealthy diet with a high saturated trans fat, red meat and processed meat may be the major cause of atherosclerosis.

In other words, the Western diet is one of the major culprits that cause the majority of cases of atherosclerosis. 

Dr. Meifang Wang, the lead researcher in the study of "Western Diet Increases Inflammatory Responses and Atherosclerosis Progression via IGF-1 Receptor in ApoE-Deficient Mice" said, "....lowered circulating IGF-1 increases atherosclerosis progression in atherosclerosis-prone apolipoprotein E-deficient mice (ApoE−/−) while increased circulating IGF-1 downregulates vascular pro-inflammatory cytokine gene expression, reduces systemic and vascular oxidant stress, vascular cytokine expression, and decreases atherosclerosis progression".

And, "the pro-inflammatory phenotype that is enhanced by WD in ApoE−/− mice is further enhanced by specific IGF1R deficiency in monocytes/macrophages, and may consequently increase atherosclerosis progression".

The results suggested that the Western diet-induced atherosclerosis progression through the increase of production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and decrease of the function of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) as a mediator of anabolic responses in many cells and tissues.


Sinigrin is a phytochemical glucosinolate, belonging to the family of glucosides found abundantly in Brussels sprouts, broccoli, the seeds of black mustard, etc.

Scientists on finding a natural bioactive compound for the treatment of atherosclerosis examined the effect of sinigrin against plaque accumulation on the arterial walls.

On atherosclerosis in ApoE-/- mice, injection sinigrin exerted a significant effect in the inhibition of the serum concentrations of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), calcium (Ca2+), and pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with plaque accumulated on the wall of the arteries.

Furthermore, oral administration of sinigrin attenuated the mRNA expression of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), which form a part of immunoglobulin superfamily in inflammatory and immune responses. 

Moreover, injection also reduced the expression of genes C-C motif chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2), and CCL5 on aorta tissues associated with the risk of atherosclerosis.

The expression of low-density lipoprotein was also reduced by the injection of sinigrin observed by some keys regulators of cholesterol such as sterol regulatory element-binding protein-2 (SREBP-2).

Interestingly, increased the concentration of sinigrin at the dose up to 100 μg/ml also significantly suppressed the levels of Tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α) and nuclear translocation of NF-κB, cell signaling protein (cytokine) involved in systemic inflammation.

Additionally, at a contraction ut to 100 μg/ml, sinigrin inhibited the c-Jun-NH (2)-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway which plays a critical role in regulating cellular differentiation.

The findings strongly suggested that sinigrin inhibited the onset of atherosclerosis through lowering the low-density lipoproteins and mechanisms associated with inflammatory induction of plaque accumulation on the arterial wall.

Dr. Jang YJ, the lead scientist wrote, "sinigrin decreases the TNF-α-stimulated VCAM-1 expression through the suppression of NF-κB and MAP kinases signaling pathways, Overall, sinigrin has the potential to be used in reducing the risks of atherosclerosis".

Taken altogether, sinigrin may be considered a supplement for the prevention and combined with the primary therapy for the treatment of atherosclerosis, pending to the confirmation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.

Phytochemical Sulforaphane (Dithiolthiones) Inhibits the Onset of Prostate cancer

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a bioactive compound which processes a potential for the prevention and treatment of prostate cancer, with no side effects, according to studies.

Prostate cancer is a chronic condition characterized by abnormal cell growth in the tissue of the prostate gland. It is a slow growth disease which takes years to develop and prostate cancer may be detected during the physical (rectum) exams.

The cause of prostate cancer is a result of the alternation of DNA of the cells on the surface of the inner lining of the prostate. Researchers do not know what causes the change of cell DNA and they can not explain why people with the same health conditions, ethnicity and family history, some are susceptible to the disease onset while others do not.

However, researchers do know that the increase in age, especially after age 50, as more than 80% of prostate cancers diagnosed in men who are 65 or older, is one of the major factors associated with the disease.

Other risk factors of prostate cancer include high fat, high processed carbohydrate diet, and lifestyle. And, men who are overweight or obese are at greater risk of ultimately developing an aggressive form of prostate cancer.

However, most people with some of the risk factors have never developed prostate cancer. Some researchers suggested that men who have a history of an enlarged prostate may be at the increased risk of prostate cancer.

Dr. Saiful Miah, the lead scientist in the examining the risk of developing prostate cancer of men suffering BPH wrote "BPH and PCa can be linked together at a molecular and cellular level on genetic, hormonal, and inflammatory platforms suggesting that these prostatic diseases have common pathophysiological driving factors. Epidemiological studies are weighted towards the presence of BPH having a greater risk for a man to develop PCa in his lifetime".

Most common symptoms of late stage of prostate cancer include, burning sensation or painful urination,  difficulty urinating, or trouble starting and stopping while urinating, more frequent urges to urinate at night, decreased the flow of urine stream, particularly, blood in urine (hematuria) if the tumor break the nearby blood vessel, loss of bladder control if the tumor has affected the bladder tissue and localized pain, if the tumor has pressed on the nearby nerve cells.

If you have some of the above symptoms, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility of prostate cancer.

Dithiolthiones are phytochemicals in the class of Organosulfides, found abundantly in cruciferous vegetables, garden sorrel, horseradish, etc.

On finding a natural compound or whole food for the treatment of prostate cancer, researchers in the cancer team at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and School of Medicine investigated the anti-prostate cancer effect of sulforaphane (SFN).

Injection of sulforaphane (SFN) showed to decrease the incidence or burden of early-stage prostate cancer. In other words, the chemical compound protected the prostate gland against cell alternation to initiate the disease onset.

SFN treatment exerted a cytoprotective autophagy in cultured human prostate cancer cells.  A used combination with chloroquine (CQ), the compound reduced the weight of the prostate compared to control. The average size of the metastatic lymph node was also lower by about 42% in the SFN + CQ group than in control.

Interestingly, the SFN + CQ combination was not superior to SFN alone. Furthermore, the SFN + CQ combination injection not only showed prevention of prostate cancer and metastasis but also decreased cell proliferation, increased apoptosis and cancer cell degradation.

In advanced androgen-independent prostate cancer (AIPC) represented by the DU145 and PC3 cell lines, compared the effect of TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and sulforaphane (SFN), researchers showed that sulforaphane exerted similar effect on apoptosis-resistant cancer stem cells (CSCs) properties compared to TRAIL, though the agents acted synergistically when applied in combination.

In vivo, tumor engraftment and tumor growth were strongly inhibited by sulforaphane (SFN),, without inducing any side effects.

In the comparison of the effect of sulforaphane(SFN) and 3,3'-diindolylmethane(DIM) in normal prostate epithelial cells and prostate cancer cells, researchers at the Oregon State University found that SFN and DIM reverse many of the cancer-associated methylation alterations, including aberrantly methylated genes that are dysregulated or highly involved in cancer progression.

Taken altogether, sulforaphane(SFN) use alone may be considered a bioactive ingredient for the prevention and combined with the primary therapy for treatment of prostate cancer.

Phytochemical Allicin, the Potent Anti Pancreatic Cancer Supplement

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a single ingredient isolated from garlic for the prevention and treatment of pancreatic cancer with no side effects, according to studies.

Cancer of pancreas or pancreatic cancer is a medical condition of a malignant neoplasm of the pancreas, as the cells have become cancerous and divided uncontrollably.

Most pancreatic cancers start in the ducts (an exocrine component of the pancreas) that carry pancreatic juices. Pancreatic cancers originated in the glandular tissue account for over 75 - 90% of all cases of exocrine cancers.

At the advanced stage, cancerous cells from the pancreas may travel a distance away to exhibit secondary metastasis.

In Canada, the 5-year net survival including all stages for pancreatic cancer is 8%. In other words,  92% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will die after 5 years.

According to the statistic provided by the American Cancer Society, every year, approximately over an estimated 55,000 adults (29,000 men and 26,000 women) in the United States are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The incidence rates are 25% higher in black people, compared to white people.

Researchers do not know the causes of the disease. However, age, gender, ethnicity, smoking habit, poor diet and a certain medical condition such as diabetes are associated with the prevalent risks of pancreatic cancer.

Some researchers suggested that pancreatic cancer is also found in high numbers in obese patients and patient with family history of the disease, compared to others.

Dr. Silverman DT in the assessment of risk factors for pancreatic cancer, in a population-based case control study of pancreatic cancer diagnosed in Atlanta (GA), Detroit (MI), and ten New Jersey counties from August 1986 through April 1989, including 526 incident cases and 2,153 population controls. wrote, "elevated body mass index and caloric intake had increased risk".

And, " A three-fold risk of pancreatic cancer among first-degree relatives of affected individuals was apparent. An increased risk also was associated with a family history of colon, endometrial, ovary, and breast cancer, suggesting a possible link to hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer".

Allicin is phytochemical containing sulfur in the class of organosulfur compound, found abundantly in onion and garlic.

On finding the natural compound for the treatment of pancreatic cancer with no side effects, researchers evaluated the efficacy of combined treatment of the recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) and allicin on pancreatic cancer.

The study includes a total of 60 C57/BL6 nude mice pancreatic cancer xenograft models randomized assigned into four groups of 15 mice per group: control group, allicin treatment group, rIL-2 treatment group, combined treatment with allicin and rIL-2 group. 

Mice in each group were treated with saline, rIL-2, allicin, or combination of rIL-2 and allicin by weekly i.v injection for four weeks.

Treatment with allicin and rIL-2 group significantly suppressed the xenograft growth and prolonged survival time, compared to other groups. Truly, combined therapy group exerted the most amounts of apoptotic cells.

The combined treatment group anti-pancreatic cancer efficacy was attributed to the activation of levels of CD4+T, in stimulating other immune cells, in killing cancer cells and natural killer cells.

Furthermore, allicin and rIL-2 also increased the levels of Interferon gamma (IFN-γ), a cytokine produced by a variety of cells involved in the immune response against cancer cells, compared to other groups.


Dr. the lead researcher wrote in the final paper, "Combined treatment with allicin and rIL-2 resulted in suppression of tumor growth and prolonged survival time possibly through activation of CD4+T, CD8+T and NK cell".

Taken altogether, allicin isolated from the garlic may be considered a bioactive ingredient for the prevention and combined with the primary therapy for treatment of pancreatic cancer.

However, intake of allicin in a form of supplement should be taken with extreme care in the prevention of overdose toxicity.

Localized Honey, the Best for the Treatment of Allergies with No Side Effects, According to Studies

By Kyle J. Norton

Scientists may have found a natural alternative for the treatment of allergies, according to studies.

Allergies are a faulty reaction of the immune systematic responses against harmful substances that enter the body.

Symptoms and diseases associated with allergy include sinus swelling, seasonal and returning allergies, hay fever and nasal allergies.

Believe or not, Penicillin, antibiotic medicine is the most common allergy trigger in drug allergies.  10 percent of people are allergic after using the medicine.

According to the statistics, in the US, approximately, more than 50 million Americans have experienced various types of allergies each year and 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18.

In other words, 1 in 13 children suffers from a food allergy. About 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food.

The findings strongly suggested that foods are the most common and major cause of the allergic onset.

Dr. Ruchi S. Gupta and colleagues in the allergic team in examining the food allergies in children wrote, "Overall, estimated current FA prevalence was 7.6%,.The most prevalent allergens were peanut (2.2%), milk (1.9%), shellfish (1.3%), and tree nut (1.2%)".

And, "Among food-allergic children, 42.3% reported ≥1 severe FA and 39.9% reported multiple FA. Furthermore, 19.0% reported ≥1 FA-related emergency department visit in the previous year and 42.0% reported ≥1-lifetime FA-related emergency department visit, whereas 40.7% had a current epinephrine autoinjector prescription.

Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The rich golden liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of allergies examined the honey effects in the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR).

The prospective randomized placebo-controlled study included 40 AR patients divided equally into a case group and a control group. All the subjects received a daily dose of 10 mg of loratadine for 4 weeks.

The case group then ingested 1 g/kg body weight of honey daily in separate doses for the 4-week period. The control group ingested the same dose of honey-flavored corn syrup as a placebo.

According to the AR symptoms scored at the start, week 4, and week 8 of the study, at week 4, both groups showed progressive improvement in the symptoms, however, at week 8, only the case group showed continuous improvement in the symptom score.

The ingested honey group showed a significant improvement in individual AR symptoms after week 8 and the efficacy in reducing the symptoms persisted for a month after the cessation of the honey treatment.

The results suggested that honey processed certain chemical compounds that were not found in the corn syrup for the treatment of AR.

Some researchers suggested that long-term intake of raw honey can help to ameliorate allergy symptoms by regularly exposing to pollen, similarly to the allergy injection in desensitizing pollen-program.

If this result is true then only local honey can process the anti-AR symptoms compared to honey unlocalized pollen.

Taken altogether, honey may be considered a functional remedy for the prevention and treatment of AR symptoms, regardless of the types of honey, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
