Scientists have found out the causes of migraine

In the Journal of Headache and Pain, an article was published in which specialists described a violation in the work of capillaries, which is one of the main causes of severe headaches in patients.

As experiments have shown, capillaries of migraine carriers react differently to capsaicin. This was manifested in the fact that some of them expanded more strongly, while others responded less actively. In healthy people, all the blood vessels reacted approximately equally to the burning substance.

Such differences, scientists believe, suggest that the work of CGRP and TRPV1 in the body of migraine carriers can be disrupted. These failures, in turn, can be the main cause of the development of pain

Two more moons are closer, and move in a straight orbit, that is, in the same direction in which Jupiter rotates. However, the twelfth satellite was unique – its orbit is straight and slightly inclined in relation to other moons and, most curiously, it intersects with the orbits of cosmic bodies flying towards it.
