This increases the distension of the stomach, causing pressure against the diaphragm and the oesophageal opening and greatly increasing the risk of hemiation.

Perhaps surprisingly, cholesterol consumption has not changed significantly since Paleolithic times, but people now consume more of the specific saturated fats that boost the body’s production of cholesterol. Elevated cholesterol levels per se are not necessarily problematic, but they can become pro-inflammatory when combined with a low intake of antioxidants, such as in a diet with few vegetables and fruit.
estrogenic contraceptives. Sulman (1970) developed a mammotropic index on which reserpine scored highest , when administered subcutaneously at 1 mg/kg for 5 days to estrogen-primed female rats. Other Rauvolfia alkaloids showed mastogenic activity as well, ajmalicine, ajmaline, and yohimbine are about half as potent as deserpidine, rescinnamine, and reserpine. Deserpidine modifies secondary sex characteristics. In female rats it suppresses vaginal keratization, induces permanent estrus, stimulates the mammaries; in males, it dissociates the endocrine and germinal functions of the testicles (KAP). Reserpine is considered useful in schizophrenia. It acts synergistically with chlorpromazine, leading to lower and minimizing adverse side effects. Serpentine is twice as hypotensive as ajmaline and synergistic with reserpine (KAP). Rescinnamine has the same activities, but weaker (and it is less toxic), rau-nescine, epsilon-reserpine, residine (WOI) are also active but less so than reserpine. Efflux pumps can be inhibited by reserpine, which, at 20 mg/L, reduced sparfloxacin, moxifloxacin, and ciprofloxacin IC(50)s and MICs by up to four-fold ( Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 42, no. 6, Dec 1998 p. 807810).
