Qu’est ce qui influence votre santé ? - What influences your health ?
BY FRANÇOIS VAN LISHOUT
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 20, 2014
Dans cette vidéo, je parlerai tout d’abord de mes recherches sur les facteurs génétiques jouant un rôle dans des maladies complexes telles que le cancer, l’asthme, le diabète et la maladie d’Alzheimer. On peut espérer que d’ici une dizaine d’années, le médecin pourra prédire sur base de vos gènes, quel traitement est le plus adapté dans votre cas. En attendant d’en arriver là, vous pouvez dès aujourd’hui faire quelque chose pour votre santé, notamment en faisant du sport régulièrement. Je montrerai comment la course à pied a changée ma vie et donnerai des conseils pour pratiquer ce sport correctement. En effet, beaucoup de gens abandonnent cette activité à cause de problèmes de genoux. Ceux-ci peuvent pourtant être évité en faisant principalement attention à trois choses : sa technique de course, porter des chaussures adaptées et écouter son corps (notamment, ne pas vouloir en faire trop du jour au lendemain).
In this video, I will first talk about my research activities, which focuses on genetic factors influencing complex diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer disease. We can expect that in about ten years, doctors will be able to predict, based on your genes, which treatment is best indicated in your case. Before we get there, you can already start today doing something for your health, for instance by doing sports regularly. I will show how running changed my life and give some advices on how to do it right. Indeed, many people give up this activity because of knee problems. However, these can be avoided, mainly by paying attention to three things: the running technique, wearing appropriate shoes and listening to your body (in particular, avoiding doing too much from one day to the other).

How far do you migrate to reach your summer home? Well, these storks fly to Austria each year to escape Africa's sizzling summers. In today's "Presentation of the Day", writer and photographer Roland Hagenberg (along with architect Terunobu Fujimori and engineer Richard Woschitz) devised a plan to develop a house where a family of up to four humans and two birds might live in harmony. In his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 98), Hagenberg gets into the nitty-gritty architectural and structural details, particularly focusing on how they included all the modern niceties necessary for both the human and bird families. In most cases we'd say they're killing two birds with one stone here, but in this case perhaps we should refrain.
Stem Cell Art
Irwin Adam Eydelnant is a chemical engineer, but all of his friends are designers. In his edition of Presentation of the Day, "Stem Cell Art" (from PKN Toronto Vol. 14), he speaks on how he moved to Toronto from Montreal after a crazy, transformative journey through Siberia. Inspired by his designer friends, and armed with his newfound inspiration, he began turning stem cells into microscopic 3D art.
