: Pomegranate contains a cocktail of chemicals which appear to reduce cell damage and potentially kill off cancer cells, according to scientists at the University of California.They asked 50 men with prostate cancer to have a glass (0.24 litres) of the juice daily.
They have a similar first ionization energy, which allows for each atom to give up its sole outer electron.
That they are different elements that combine with the same anions to make similar salts was suspected in 1702, are found in all potassium, and it is the most common radioisotope in the human body.
They then kept track of the men’s levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA), a protein linked to prostate cancer.
Usually cancer patients’ levels double in about 15 months, but in patients who drank pomegranate juice it took an average of 54 months for their PSA levels to rise.: Fighting heart disease and lowering ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol — antioxidants in pomegranate juice may help reduce the formation of fatty deposits on artery walls.
Potassium ions are necessary for the function of all living cells.
The transfer of potassium ions through nerve cell membranes is necessary for normal nerve transmission; potassium deficiency and excess can each result in numerous abnormalities, including an abnormal heart rhythm and various electrocardiographic (ECG) abnormalities.In the periodic table, potassium is one of the alkali metals.All of the alkali metals have a single valence electron in the outer electron shell, which is easily removed to create an ion with a positive charge – a cation, which combines with anions to form salts. Elemental potassium is a soft silvery-white alkali metal that oxidizes rapidly in air and reacts vigorously with water, generating sufficient heat to ignite hydrogen emitted in the reaction and burning with a lilac-colored flame.Potassium is a chemical element with symbol K (from Neo-Latin kalium) and atomic number 19.It was first isolated from potash, the ashes of plants, from which its name derives.which refers to an early method of extracting various potassium salts: placing in a pot the ash of burnt wood or tree leaves, adding water, heating, and evaporating the solution.
