Autophagy

Nobel Prize!!!!!!!
Fasting and this year Nobel prize..what is the connection.

.Please read on...��This year's
Nobel prize for medicine has gone to a Japanese scientist Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi for his research on autophagy. Autophagy means to "self eat". In other words, the process by which the human body eats it own damaged cells and unused proteins. Autophagy is a natural process and also one which occurs in cases of starvation. The failure of autophagy is one of the main reasons for accumulation of damaged cells which eventually leads to various diseases in the body. Autophagy is important to prevent/fight cancer and also plays a vital role in degrading and 'consuming' cells infected by bacteria and viruses.

��We have to observe here that Allah has recommended a practice of fasting  Many of us religiously follow this practice of rozas (ramzan, weekly, or monthly 13th, 14th, 15th) without any idea of the biological and therapeutic benefits of this practice. Through this process of fasting induced autophagy, our body repaired its damaged and degenerated cells or used up the proteins of the damaged cells for its survival.

��Whenever modern science conquers a frontier in any field, it somehow relates to a practice of our Deen ��Once a year roza, Mondays and Thursdays, 5prayers and tahajjud... the time spent in divine contemplation is a tonic for the mind and soul while the practice of fasting ensured that the body would heal and rejuvenate itself.��

Clearly, Allah knows the process of holistic healing of both the body and the mind.🌹
