You Can Increase The Length Of Your Penis By Doing This

A penis is a vital organ in a man. Besides urinating, this
organ is also used during sexual intercourse. You will note that some women
normally like making love with a man who has a big penis. This is because a
bigger penis are deemed to be more satisfying compared to a small one. This has
made men to look for various ideas that can help them increase their penis length.
Some men would like to increase their penis by 2-3 inches. Is this achievable?

Yes, penis doctors have found you can actually increase your penis size today. The good news is that there
are some products that can help you achieve this objective. In this case, you
should consider the following ideas:

1. Use a penis enlargement pump

You will realize that penis enlargement pumps have been
there for quite some time. Most men have appreciated the need to use these
pumps in order to increase the size of their penis. How does this pump work? You
will note that this pump can help increase the size of your penis by vacuuming
the penis. This way, you can be sure that your penis will reach the size that
you desire. You should place the penis in the pump so that the vacuuming effect
can start. This method might take time but it has proved to be very effective.

2. Use penis enlargement pills.

You will note that these pills are also effective in
enlarging the penis. These oils normally have a special herbal formula that can
help in increasing blood flow to the penile region. This can make your penis to
become bigger over time.

3. Change your diet.

What you eat can actually affect how big you grow. If you want
to have a bigger penis, you should change your diet and start taking more proteins.
In this case, you can consider taking lean chicken, eggs and so on. You can also
take berries, unsalted almonds and raw fruits and vegetables. It is also
important that you drink more water so that your body can remain healthy. You
should avoid salty foods. You should also avoid taking fast foods and excessive
alcohol. This has actually worked well for many people out there.

4. Change your lifestyle.

Your lifestyle can affect the growth of your penis. If you
lead an active lifestyle, you can be sure that you will have a better blood
circulation in your body. This can help to increase the testosterone levels in
your blood. This can play a major role in increasing the size of your penis. Leading
a sedentary lifestyle can hinder you from getting a bigger penis in the long
run.

5. Consider penis enlargement exercises.

You can consider doing some penis enlargement exercises regularly.
You will note that these exercises have been there for many years. If you are consistent,
these exercises can help you get a bigger penis. You can therefore consider
doing Jelq and Kegel exercises.

Consider these ideas and you will have a longer penis. This can
help boost your self-esteem and enable your partner to enjoy having sex with
you. Consider these ideas today and you will not be disappointed. These ideas
are truly incredible.

Creating New Types of Stem Cells

Generating new stem cell lines is a major focus of many CIRM-funded researchers. Learn why these new lines are considered so important as we accelerate discoveries from the lab bench to the patient’s bedside.

What is a stem cell line?

A stem cell line is a group of identical stem cells that can be grown and nurtured in a lab dish. A line originates with either a single induced pluripotent stem cell or from the cells of a five-day-old blastocyst—and all resulting cells in the line are replicates of the original cells. Researchers working with these lines can grow large volumes of cells. They can even freeze some in liquid nitrogen for future use or to share with colleagues.

We are still learning the best way to grow and maintain stem cells. The cells need nutrients and a recipe of biological factors in the lab dish in order to grow well. Figuring out the best combination of factors to maintain a stem cell line is the focus of several CIRM grants.

What are the different ways of creating pluripotent stem cell lines?

There are many different approaches to creating new cell lines. CIRM considers this to be such an important endeavor that it has funded $23 million in grants dedicated to the creation of new cell lines and to techniques that make the process more efficient:

Option 1: In vitro fertilization

All human embryonic stem cell lines in use today were created from embryos generated by vitro fertilization (IVF) and donated by the couple for research purposes. In IVF, researchers mix a man’s sperm and a woman’s eggs together in a lab dish. Some of those eggs will become fertilized. After fertilization, the cells divide for about five days to form a ball of cells called a blastocyst.

The blastocyst is essentially a hollow ball of cells containing an inner clump that is known as the inner cell mass. This clump is what give rise to embryonic stem cells if grown in a dish. To generate an embryonic stem cell line, a researcher removes the outer layer of the five-day-old blastocyst then puts the remaining portion on a lab dish containing factors that allow cells of the inner cell mass to grow and thrive. These cells form the basis of a new embryonic stem cell line.

Option 2: Nuclear Transfer

Another method called stem cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) involves removing the genetic material from an egg, then injecting a different set of genetic material from an adult person’s cell into that egg. Researchers then stimulate the egg to begin maturing. About five days later the egg develops into a blastocyst—the same type of blastocyst that would be used to create cell lines from donated IVF embryos. Researchers remove the inner cell mass from the blastocyst and grow those cells in a lab dish to create a new stem cell line.

Researchers have used SCNT to create stem cell lines from a wide range of animals including non-human primates. In 2013, scientists for the first time created human stem cell lines through nuclear transfer.

Embryonic stem cells created through SCNT have the advantage of being genetically identical to a person’s own cells, reducing the risk of immune rejection.

The process of using nuclear transfer to create cell lines identical to a person’s own cells is sometimes referred to as therapeutic cloning. That’s because those identical stem cells would be created with the intent to derive therapies.

Therapeutic cloning should not be confused with reproductive cloning, in which the intent is to create an identical human being. The California constitution, CIRM regulations and all other states that are actively supporting stem cell research expressly prohibit human reproductive cloning.

Option 3: Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

The first human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells were created by inserting four genes into the DNA of human skin cells. Those introduced genes effectively turned back the clock, causing the adult skin cells to revert back to an embryonic-like state, rendering them pluripotent.

These cells are an exciting and valuable research tool, however, iPS cells face some hurdles before they can advance towards clinical trials. For example, the earliest versions of the technique used a virus to shuttle the genes into the skin cell, which can integrate into the cell’s DNA and possibly cause hazardous mutations. What’s more, some of the genes used to create the iPS cells have some cancer-causing potential.

Many CIRM-funded researchers are working to identify safer ways of creating iPS cells, which would allow researchers to create patient-specific stem cells that can be transplanted as a treatment for disease. These researchers are looking into using methods that don’t require the genes to incorporate into the cell’s DNA or finding a combination of chemicals or proteins to replace those genes as alternative ways of creating iPS cells.
