desert of Ladakh where the temperatures can drop as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius But Saachi Soni is game for the challenge The 22-year-old from Jaipur has signed up to run the gruelling La Ultra race in August taking on the best endurance runners from around the world Saachi is no stranger to high altitudes In fact this PG student at Indian institute of Mass communication has climbed Mount McKinley the highest peak in North America and Europe’s tallest Mount Elbrus She also made an attempt to scale Mount Everest in 2013 Despite being from Rajasthan Saachi has nurtured a unique relationship with the mountains for the past 15 years Despite being from Rajasthan Saachi has nurtured a unique relationship with the mountains for the past 15 years “I started exploring them when I was just seven As a kid I would spend summer vacations not at my grandmother’s house but in the lap of the Himalayas The interest in mountaineering grew after taking some foundation and advanced courses from the Mountaineering institutes under Ministry of Defense” says Saachi After honing her skill on peaks in Himachal and Uttarakhand Saachi scaled Mount Everest in 2013 the ultimate challenge and accomplishment for any mountaineer She’s since taken the Indian flag to Mount McKinley the highest peak in America’s Alaska and Europe’s tallest Mount Elbrus A total of 20 people from nine countries including 10 from India are going to participate in the La Ultra race this year Saachi is the only female participant from India and the second Indian woman contestant since its inception in 2010 Aparna Choudhary competed in the 222-km version in 2013 but failed to finish Dr Rajat Chauhan the man behind the race “says: f you want to live safe you might as well wear a helmet and wait it out until death claims you Call me crazy But if you are not running or living on the edge you’re wasting space” “So many people approach me for the race but few are picked up The race is not a half-marathon in Delhi where anyone can walk in Only those who maintain a level of fitness and endurance can survive I look for this instinct in every runner and I think Saachi has this and she deserves to be there at La Ultra” adds Dr Rajat Saachi says her love for nature and exploration keeps her high “I have been working out hard for several years with a regimen that includes jogging running cycling gyming swimming and a session of peaceful Yoga The consistency with the physical workouts allows me to expand my limits and have the courage of reaching mountain peaks” she says adding that while climbing the Alaska rages she was carrying a 60-kg weight when she herself weighed just 55 kg “My physical endurance will help me do well in the race as people normally struggle with breathing problems I think this is going to be the biggest challenge as we will be running for 24 hours in a place where Army asks people not to stay for more than 30 minutes It will also be a real test of my endurance and skills” says Saachi La Ultra-The High The seventh edition of La Ultra is scheduled to begin on August 11 this year There will be three race categories — 111 km 222 km and 333 km All three race categories will be flagged off simultaneously from Diskit village in Nubra valley La Ultra – The High is an ultra marathon like no other especially because of the temperature variations on the way Temperatures can fluctuate from 40 degree Celsius hot to minus 12 degree Celsius cold in just six hours Runners will be touching altitudes of 17500 feet three times in the 333 km category twice in 222 km and once in the 111 Km category No wonder very few take up the challenge and only 30 have finished in the past six years By: PTI | London | Published: December 11 2017 5:22 pm The results show that marine wildlife are actually contributing to the spread of microplastics within the marine environment (Image Source: University of Plymouth) Related News A single plastic grocery bag could be shredded by marine organisms into over one million microscopic fragments a study has found Marine scientists at the University of Plymouth examined the rate at which bags were broken down by the amphipod Orchestia gammarellus which inhabits coastal areas in northern and western Europe The results show that marine wildlife are actually contributing to the spread of microplastics within the marine environment rather than them simply being emitted from the water supply or forming through the physical and chemical break down of larger items Their main aim was to discover whether different types of plastic and the presence of a biofilm – a layer of organic material which accumulates over time – altered the rate at which such organisms broke down plastic debris Through monitoring in the laboratory and on the shoreline researchers demonstrated the bags were torn and stretched by Orchestia gammarellus with microplastics subsequently being found in and around their faecal matter The type of plastic – conventional degradable and biodegradable – had no effect on the rate of ingestion however the presence of a biofilm meant the shredding took place around four times as quickly This is consistent with recent studies into the feeding behaviour of seabirds and suggests marine life might be increasingly attracted to marine debris as a source of food regardless of the potential harm caused “An estimated 120 million tonnes of single use plastic items – such as carrier bags – are produced each year and they are one of the main sources of plastic pollution” said Richard Thompson from the University of Plymouth “They already represent a potential hazard to marine life but this research shows species might also be contributing to the spread of such debris” Thompson said “It further demonstrates that marine litter is not only an aesthetic problem but has the potential to cause more serious and persistent environmental damage” For all the

cutting your calorie intake well below your usual diet will add years to your life New research published on Wednesdayhowevershows the extremeemaciating diet doesn’t increase lifespan in rhesus monkeysthe closest human relatives to try it in a rigorouslong-running study While caveats remainoutside experts regarded the findings as definitiveparticularly when combined with those from a similar study “If there’s a way to manipulate the human diet to let us live longerwe haven’t figured it out yet and it may not exist” said biologist Steven Austad of the University of Texas Health Science Center’s Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studieswho wrote an analysis of the study in Nature Since 1934research has shown that lab ratsmiceyeastfruit flies and round worms fed 10 percent to 40 percent fewer calories than their free-eating peers lived some 30 percent longer In some studiesthey lived twice as long Such findings have spawned a growing community of believers who seek better health and longer life in calorie-restricted (CR)dietsas promised in the 2005 book “The Longevity Diet” including 5000 members of the CR Society International The research has also prompted companies like Procter & Gamble and Nu Skin Enterprises to develop drugs to mimic the effects of calorie restriction The new studyfrom the National Institute on Agingpart of the US National Institutes of Healthsuggests a surprising disconnect between health and lifespan It found that most of the 57 calorie-restricted monkeys had healthier hearts and immune systems and lower rates of diabetescancer or other ills than the 64 control monkeys But there was no longevity pay-off “You can argue that the calorie-restricted animals are healthier” said Austad “They have better cholesterol profilesless muscle lossless disease But it didn’t translate into greater longevity What we learn from this is you can un-link health and longevity” YOUNGER IMMUNE SYSTEMSLESS HEART DISEASE The NIA studylaunched in 1987is one of two investigating whether eating just 70 percent of the calories in a standard lab diet extends life in a long-lived primate The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center’s studybegun in 1989also uses rhesus monkeyswhose physiologygenetics and median lifespan (27 years) are closer to humans than are the rodents in earlier calorie-restriction research Initial results were promising In 2006 the NIA group reported that calorie-restricted monkeys had younger-seeming immune systems Wisconsin reported that after 20 years of eating like birdsthe monkeys were less likely to get heart diseasediabetescancer and other diseases of aging They also lived longer: By 200980 percent of the free-eating Wisconsin monkeys had died of age-related illnessbut only 50 percent of calorie-restricted monkeys had Those findingsthe scientists reported at the timeshowed “that CR slows aging in a primate species” Experts on aging have since waited for the NIA to weigh inand the verdict was a shock: “The calorie-restricted monkeys lived no longer than the other monkeys” NIA’s Julie Mattisonwho helped lead the studytold Reuters The oldest animals in each group had the same incidence of tumorsheart disease and general deterioration While the abstemious monkeys had some improved health markers such as cholesterol and triglyceride levelsMattison said”that didn’t translate into better survival” The NIA study showed that even monkeys starting calorie restriction early in lifefrom 1 to 14 years of agehad no lifespan edge over their gourmand peers With 19 of the 40 monkeys whose eating was restricted starting in youth still alivethe NIA scientists calculatedthe chance that they will outlive free-eating monkeys is less than one-tenth of 1 percent Perhaps more surprisinghealth markers were often worse in monkeys that began calorie restriction as young adults than older onesthe opposite of what scientists expected And more of the animals that started calorie restriction when young died of causes unrelated to aging than did their free-eating peers “There may be something about calorie restriction that makes animals more susceptible to death from other causes” said Austad A KILLER CONTROL GROUP Scientists offered several explanations for why the NIA’s findings differ from more encouraging results in the Wisconsin study The Wisconsin monkeys’ diet had seven times the table sugar (28 percent of calorieslike Americans’ diets) as the NIA’s (4 percent) The Wisconsin control monkeys also ate however much they wished; the NIA control monkeys ate a fixed amount andas a resultweighed less That suggests the longevity diet didn’t really extend lifespan in the Wisconsin monkeys: It only seemed to because the control monkeys ate themselves into an early grave “Comparing calorie restriction to what you think is a normal diet but is in fact an unhealthy diet with too much food and too much sucrose can trip you up” said Austad “If you keep your control animals to a healthy weightas the NIA dida diet that produces extreme emaciation has no further effect on longevity” Most problematicmany of the Wisconsin study’s calorie-restricted monkeys died of causes unrelated to agingsuch as anesthesia used in some experiments and gastrointestinal bloat Only by not counting those deaths did the Wisconsin scientists find a statistically significant longevity effectsaid Wisconsin’s Ricki Colmana leader of that study It is too soon to know how the NIA study will affect the development of drugs aimed at replicating calorie restriction’s benefits without the hunger pangs They include mannoheptulosea compound derived from unripe avocados that “tricks cells into thinking they ate less” said George RothCEO of privately held GeroScience Roth helped launch the NIA study and is a co-author of the new paper He believes there is still good evidence in favor of calorie restrictionincluding the Wisconsin study’s findings GeroScience is working with Procter & Gamble to use mannoheptulose as a lifespan-increasing supplement for dogs and hopes to raise money for a clinical trial in people LifeGen Technologiesco-founded by a leader of the Wisconsin studyis testing a nutraceutical that mimicked some genetic changes seen with calorie restriction in rodents The company was bought by Nu Skin Enterprises in 2011 The NIA and Wisconsin teams are continuing to collect data to see if calorie restriction suddenly proves more beneficial “But what I take away from these studies is that extreme emaciation may not be the correct paradigm” said
