Relieving the Pain

“Exercise may be the best treatment of chronic pain,” say doctors at a new clinic for dealing with pain. “People with chronic pain need to stop lying around, go out more, and start exercising.” The instinctive reaction to acute pain is to stop moving and to try to protect the source of pain. But it seems that this is often not productive, especially in the case of back pain. Back pain, after headaches and tiredness, has become the third most common reason for people to visit their doctors. Painful backs now account for millions of days off work.

Lumbar(腰部的)pains are partly the price humans pay for taking their forelimbs off the ground, but they are made worse by a sedentary(久坐不动的)lifestyle. Lack of exercise slowly decreases the flexibility and strength of muscles, so that it is more difficult to take pressure off the site of pain. Exercise is essential. It releases endorphins(内啡肽), the body’s “feel-good” chemicals, which are natural painkillers. In fact, these are so important that researchers are now looking for drugs that can maintain a comfortable level of endorphins in the body.

Most people who go to a family doctor complaining of pain are prescribed pain-killing drugs rather than exercise. Since finding the cause of backache is not so easy, doctors frequently do not know the precise cause of the discomfort, and as the pain continues, sufferers end up taking stronger doses or a series of different drugs. “It’s crazy,” says Dr. Brasseur, a therapist at the International Association for the Study of Pain. “Some of them are taking different drugs prescribed by different doctors. I’ve just seen a patient who was taking two drugs which turned out to be the same thing under different- names.”

A generation of new pain clinics now operates on the basis that drugs are best avoided. Once patients have undergone the initial physical and psychological check up, their medication is cut down as much as possible. Taking patients off drugs also prepares them for physical activity.

In some pain-relief clinics, patients begin the day with muscle contraction and relaxation exercises, followed by an hour on exercise bikes. Later in the day, they practice tai chi(太极), self-defense, and deep thought. This compares with an average of two-and-a-half hours’ physiotherapy(理疗)a week in a traditional hospital program. “The idea is to strengthen and to increase long-lasting energy, flexibility, and confidence,” explains Bill Wiles, a consultant pain doctor in Liverpool. “Patients undergoing this therapy get back to work and resume healthy active lifestyles much sooner than those subjected to more conservative treatment.”

16.To treat pain, patients should stop moving around.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

17.Headaches are partly caused by lack of exercise.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

18.Exercise helps to take the pressure off the site of pain.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

19.Doctors often use drugs such as endorphins to treat patients.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

20.Backache sufferers often end up taking more than one drug to kill pain.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

21.Exercise helps pain sufferers to recover more quickly than traditional treatment.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

22.New pain clinics ask patients to give up drugs completely.

A.Right B.Wrong C.Not mentioned

Owls and Larks(猫头鹰与云雀)

1 In this article, we look at the importance of sleep for learning. Most healthy adults need eight of more hours of sleep. But why do we need sleep in the first place? We need sleep for the brain to get a chance to rebuild memories stored during the day and associate these with previously learned things. If this process is interrupted by, say, the sound of an alarm clock, it may not be as effective. So if your sleep is cut short by the alarm clock, how damaging is it? The truth is that it’s difficult to predict, as so much depends on how much sleep your body actually needs on that particular occasion.

2 The popular belief that people are naturally either larks (early risers) or owls is false. The reason why people tend to be one or the other has more to do with lifestyle, age, and personality. Many people who appear to be early birds may have just become so through habit, for example, parents with very young children. Teenagers can have difficulty falling asleep until late at night and then they naturally have problems getting up the following morning.

3 The main reason why owls are owls is that they tend to spend their time over a book, movie, or computer game till the early hours of the morning. They enjoy the quiet of the night when they can pursue their passion. On the other hand, larks can make better use of early morning hours where they can study in quiet at the time when their brains are most refreshed. So which is better for learning-an owl’s or a lark’s lifestyle? The simple truth is that it is more complex than simply being one or the other. Leading a well-balanced life in terms of work and play and sleeping enough to bring maximum refreshment is probably the secret.

4 As for naps, experts on insomnia(失眠)argue against taking naps, as these may keep people up at night. If your nap lasts only five minutes to half an hour and does not affect your ability to fall asleep in the night, it will probably help you be more alert in evening hours. However, if you are having problems getting to sleep at night, it’s not only naps that you should avoid. Try not to drink a lot of alcohol, take nicotine(尼古丁), do mentally intense activities like preparing for exams or doing exercise in the evening. Some people swear that drinking coffee never stops them from sleeping like a log, whereas others will never go near the stuff for fear of being awake all night. However, the best advice for most is to avoid it in the evening, and if you drink coffee before a nap, remember you are likely to awaken as soon as the caffeine starts kicking in.

怎样学好英语 第4部分:阅读理解(第31~45题,每题3分,共45分)


第一篇 Immune Functions

The immune system is equal in complexity to the combined intricacies of the brain and nervous system. The success of the immune system in defending the body relies on a dynamic regulatory communication network consisting of millions and millions of cells. Organized into sets and subsets, these cells pass information back and forth like clouds of bees flying around a hive(蜂巢). The result is a sensitive system of checks and balances that produces an immune response that is prompt, appropriate effective, and self-limiting.

At the heart of the immune system is the ability to distinguish between self and nonself. When immune defenders encounter cells or organisms carrying foreign or nonself molecules, the immune troops move quickly to eliminate the intruders(入侵者). Virtually every body cell carries distinctive molecules that identify it as self. The body’s immune defenses do not normally attack tissues that carry a self-marker. Rather, immune cells and other body cells coexist peaceably in s state known as self-tolerance. When a normally functioning immune system attacks a nonself molecule, the system has the ability to “remember” the specifics of the foreign body. Upon subsequent encounters with the same species of molecules, the immune system reacts accordingly. With the possible exception of antibodies(抗体)passed during lactation(哺乳期), this so called immune system memory is not inherited. Despite the occurrence of a virus in your family, your immune system must “learn” from experience with the many millions of distinctive nonself molecules in the sea of microbes(微生物)in which we live. Learning entails producing the appropriate molecules and cells to match up with and counteract each nonself invader.

Any substance capable of triggering an immune response is called an antigen(抗原). Antigens are not to be confused with allergens(过敏原), which are most often harmless substances that provoke the immune system to set off the inappropriate and harmful response known as allergy. An antigen can be a virus, a bacterium or even a portion or product of one of these organisms. Tissues or cells from another individual also act as antigens; because the immune system recognizes transplanted tissues as foreign, it rejects them. The body will even reject nourishing proteins unless they are first brokendown by the digestive system into their primary, nonantigenic building blocks. An antigen announces its foreignness by means of intricate and characteristic shapes called epitopes(抗原表位), which protrude(突出)from its surface. Most antigens, even the simplest microbes, carry several different kinds of epitopes on their surface? some may even carry several hundreds. Some epitopes will be more effective than others at stimulating an immune response. Only in abnormal situation does the immune system wrongly identify self as nonself and execute a misdirected immune attack.

31.What is used to describe the communication network consisting of cells in the immune system?

A.The immune system’s memory.

B.Immune troops eliminating intruders.

C.Bees flying around a hive.

D.A sea of microbes.

32.The immune cells and other cells in the body coexist peaceably in a state known as





33.How do the immune cells recognize an antigen as “foreign” or “nonself”?

A.Through an allergic response.

B.Through blood type.

C.Through characteristic shapes on the antigen surface.

D.Through fine hairs protruding from the antigen surface.

34.Which of the following statements is true?

A.Allergens are usually harmful substances.

B.Antigens can trigger an immune response.

C.People with antigens do not suffer from obvious responses.

D.There is no difference between an antigen and an allergen.

A.An antigen is any substance that triggers an immune response.

B.One of the immune system’s primary functions is the allergic response.

C.The human body is an appropriate habitat for microbes.

D.The basic function of the immune system is to distinguish between self and nonself

第二篇 Cell Phones: Hang Up or Keep Talking?

Millions of people are using cell phones today. In many places it is actually considered unusual not to use one. In many countries, cell phones are very popular with young people. They find that the phones are more than a means of communication — having a mobile phone shows that they are cool and connected.

The explosions around the world in mobile phone use make some health professionals worried. Some doctors are concerned that in the future many people may suffer health problems from the use of mobile phones. In England, there has been a serious debate about this issue. Mobile phone companies are worried about the negative publicity of such ideas. They say that there is no proof that mobile phones are bad for your health.

On the other hand, why do some medical studies show changes in the brain cells of some people who use mobile phones? Signs of change in the tissues of the brain and head can be detected with modern scanning(扫描)equipment. In one case, a traveling salesman had to retire at a young age because of serious memory loss. He couldn’t remember even simple tasks. He would often forget the name of his own son. This man used to talk on his mobile phone for about six hours a day, every day of his working week, for a couple of years. His family doctor blamed his mobile phone use, but his employer’s doctor didn’t agree.

What is it that makes mobile phones potentially harmful? The answer is radiation. High-tech machines can detect very small amounts of radiation from mobile phones. Mobile phone companies agree that there is some radiation, but they say the amount is too small to worry about.

As the discussion about their safety continues, it appears that it’s best to use mobile phones less often. Use your regular phone if you want to talk for a long time. Use your mobile phone only when you really need it. Mobile phones can be very useful and convenient, especially in emergencies. In the future, mobile phones may have a warning label that says they are bad for your health. So for now, it’s wise not to use your mobile phone too often.

36.People buy cell phones for the following reasons EXCEPT that

A.they’re popular.

B.they’re useful.

C.they’re cheap.

D.they’re convenient.

37.The word “detected” in paragraph 3 could be best replaced by





38.The salesman retired young because

A.he disliked using mobile phones.

B.he was tired of talking on his mobile phone.

C.his employer’s doctor persuaded him to.

D.he couldn’t remember simple tasks.

39.On the safety issue of mobile phones, the manufacturing companies

A.deny the existence of mobile phone radiation.

B.develop new technology to reduce mobile phone radiation.

C.try to prove that mobile phones are not harmful to health.

D.hold that the amount of radiation is too small to worry about.

40.The writer’s purpose of writing this article is to advise people

A.to buy mobile phones.

B.to use mobile phones less often.

C.to update regular phones.

D.to stop using mobile phones.

第三篇 Be Alert to Antimicrobial(抗微生物的)Resistance

The ability of micro-organisms to find ways to avoid the action of the drugs used to cure the infections they cause is increasingly recognized as a global public health issue. Some bacteria have developed mechanisms which make them resistant to many of the antibiotics(抗生素)normally used for their treatment. They are known as multi-drug resistant bacteria, posing particular difficulties, as there may be few or no alternative options for therapy. They constitute a growing and global public health problem. WHO suggests that countries should be prepared to implement hospital infection control measures to limit the spread of multi-drug resistant strains(菌株)and to reinforce national policy on prudent use of antibiotics, reducing the generation of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

An article published in The Lancel Infectious Diseases on 11 August 2010 identified a new gene that enables some types of bacteria to be highly resistant to almost all antibiotics. The article has drawn attention to the issue of antimicrobial resistance, and, in particular, has raised awareness of infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria.

While multi-drug resistant bacteria are not new and will continue to appear, this development requires monitoring and further study to understand the extent and modes of transmission, and to define the most effective measures for control.

Those called upon to be alert to the problem of antimicrobial resistance and take appropriate action include consumers, managers of hospitals, patients, as well as national governments, the pharmaceutical(制药的)industry and international agencies.

WHO strongly recommends that governments focus control and prevention efforts in the following areas like surveillance for antimicrobial resistance) rational antibiotic use, including education of healthcare workers and the public in the appropriate use of antibiotics; introducing or enforcing legislation related to stopping the selling of antibiotics without prescription; and strict adherence to infection prevention and control measures, including the use of hand-washing measures, particularly in healthcare facilities.

Successful control of multidrug-resistant microorganisms has been documented in many countries, and the existing and well-known infection prevention and control measures can effectively reduce transmission of multi-drug resistant organisms if systematically implemented.

WHO will continue to support countries to develop relevant policies, and to coordinate international efforts to combat antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobial resistance will be the theme of WHO’s World Health Day 2011.

41.Antimicrobial resistance has become a global public health issue because

A.new antibiotics are too expensive for poor countries.

B.infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria have killed a lot of people.

C.scientists know nothing about multi-drug resistant bacteria.

D.there may be few or no treatment to infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria.

42.The word “prudent" in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to





43.The article published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases found that

A.a new multi-drug resistant bacterium has appeared.

B.some bacteria have developed a new gene to resist almost all antibiotics.

C.some infections are caused by antibiotics.

D.some countries are successful in controlling multi-drug resistant microorganisms.

44.WHO recommends governments to focus on the following areas EXCEPT

A.education on the use of antibiotics.

B.keeping hospitals from storing more antibiotics than they can use.

C.control of antibiotic use.

D.introduction of new regulations on the sale of antibiotics.

45.We learn from the passage that

A.antimicrobial resistance was not noticed until 2010.

B.without WHO, no country will be safe in the war against antimicrobial resistance.

C.WHO will focus its prevention and control efforts in poor countries.

D.further study is needed to deal with the transmission of multi —drug resistant bacteria.



Mt. Desert Island

The coast of the State of Maine is one of the most irregular in the world. A straight line running from the southernmost coastal city to the northern most coastal city would measure about 225 miles. If you followed the coastline between these points, you would travel more than ten times as far. This irregularity is the result of what is called a drowned coastline ________ (46) At that time, the whole area that is now Maine was part of a mountain range that towered above the sea. As the glacier(冰川)descended, however, it expended enormous force on those mountains, and they sank into the sea.

As the mountains sank, ocean, water charged over the lowest parts of the remaining land, former a series of twisting inlets and lagoons(咸水湖). The highest parts of the former mountain in range, nearest the shore, remained as islands ________ (47) Marine fossils found here were 225 feet above sea level indicating the level of the shoreline prior to the glacier.

The 2,500-mile-long rocky coastline of Maine keeps watch over nearly two thousand islands. Many of these islands are tiny and uninhabited, but many are home to thriving communities. Mt. Desert Island is one of the largest, most beautiful of the Maine coast islands. Measuring 16 miles by 12 miles, Mt. Desert was essentially formed as two distinct islands. ________ (48).

For years, Mt. Desert Island, particularly its major settlement, Bar Harbor, afforded summer homes for the wealthy. Recently though, Bar Harbor has become a rapidly growing arts community as well. But, the best part of the island is the unspoiled forest land known as Acadia National Park. Because tile island sits on the boundary line between the temperate(温带)and sub-Arctic zones, the island suppers the plants and animals of both zones as well as beach inland, and alpine(高山的)plants. ________ (49) The establishment of Acadia National Park in 1916 means that this natural reserve will be perpetually available to all people, not just the wealthy. Visitors to Acadia may receive nature instruction from the park naturalists as well as enjoy camping, cycling and boating. Or they may choose to spend time at the archeological museum, learning about the Stone Age inhabitants of the island.

The best view on Mt. Desert Island is from the top of Cadillac Mountain. ________ (50) From the summit, you can gaze back toward the mainland or out over the Atlantic Ocean and contemplate the beauty created by a retreating glacier.

A.This mountain rises 1,532 feet making it the highest mountain on the Atlantic seaboard.

B.It is split almost in half by Somes Sound, a deep and narrow stretch of water, seven miles long.

C.The wealthy residents of Mt. Deserts Island selfishly kept it to themselves.

D.Mt. Desert island is one of the most famous of all the islands left behind by the glacier.

E.The term comes from the activity of the ice age.

F.It also lies in a major bird migration lane and is a resting spot for many birds.
