What or who inspires you?
Who other can Inspire one, other than the Mighty Lord, who created this universe. The more I learn science, the more I adore him.
What does a day in your life look like?
How did you find or decide on your niche?
I always loved science. So there was no doubt on deciding my niche.
Like any machine, our body requires regular maintenance to make it last a long time and run well till end meets.
The problem with most men is that they will not head to hospital, unless there is some discomfort or pain and by then disease would have worsened. Most of the common diseases that affect men are potentially preventable, but one needs to undergo screening. Heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and dementia all share the same risk factors: smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and family history.
Leaving aside the basic set of tests like PSA, Blood sugar, Cholesterol, let’s explore what more men need to get screened for to lead a healthy and happy life.
Low Testosterone in Men
In men Testosterone production increases during puberty and starts to decrease after age 30. For each year over age 30, the level of testosterone in men starts to slowly dip at a rate of around 1 percent per year. Testosterone helps to maintain number of important bodily functions in men including sex drive, sperm production, muscle mass/strength, fat distribution, bone density and red blood cell production. So it’s decrease can bring about both physical and emotional changes. Depression also has been linked to men with low testosterone.
Are you one among those who has decided to lose weight by cutting down on Burgers, Cakes, Chocolates and Sugars. Even after quitting all junks are you still battling weight issue. It turns out that it may not be only your appetite that need to be blamed for your increased waistline.
Though changes in the way we eat and physical activity levels are the primary factors behind weight increase, other aspects of our lifestyle can also make a contribution.
Pay attention to these points and gain back your fit and healthy body
Are you not sleeping enough
Research suggests that sleepless nights don’t just make you moody the next day—they could also damage your waistline.
Sleep loss could lead to weight gain, says sleep disorder specialist Michael Breus. When we get too little sleep, our metabolism slows down to conserve energy. That slowdown triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which increases appetite.You head straight to kitchen in search of more food.
Sleep loss also causes our bodies to release more another hormone that signals hunger, ghrelin, and less leptin, the hormone that tells your stomach that it’s full. As a result body signals for more food and lacks the sensitivity to know when to stop eating. Also being awake more hours gives you more time to snack.
So ‘those 5 days’ are no longer a curse but life giving !!!!. Women be Proud
Periods which people around looked down can turn into a boon to you and your genetically related family members.
Though everyone knows (I like to believe) that Menstruation stands for a healthy status, bleeding every month down yonder is considered as a dirty stuff by large number of population, both men and women.
So now stand up and say, that this ‘dirty stuff’ can be a ‘life saver’ for your family.
Researchers have found that uterine lining, or endometrium, is a rich source of adult stem cells. Adult stem cells from menstrual blood were capable of differentiating into 9 lineages: cardiomyocytic, respiratory epithelial, neurocytic, myocytic, endothelial, pancreatic, hepatic, adipocytic, and osteogenic.
What is it to be like a mother….Every women who has traveled this journey would agree that they are no longer the same women after pregnancy – physically and emotionally. Pregnancy lasts an average of 266 days (38 weeks) and leaves a lasting imprint. An in depth awareness about this journey would for sure equip women wishing to be mothers and would make women who are already mothers respect their body and health and make them feel more happy and empowered. Also an understanding about what happens in majority of women would help one to seek help when needed.
A woman is going to carry a life form for whole nine months. it’s a remarkable journey. Body undergoes many obvious and subtle changes. These changes are needed to support the fetal development and prime the mother towards labor. Ribcage will widen, tummy will stretch, and organs will shift around to make room for your growing uterus.
Breast Changes: Cup size to Color to Colostrum release
Breasts may start to grow as early as week six, and will continue till the end of the pregnancy. Most women find that their bra size increases at least a cup size during first pregnancy. An increased supply of blood to the breasts along with the quick growth of milk ducts would make breast more tender and sometimes pain develops. By third trimester Colostrum, a watery pre-milk, may leak from nipples. Hormonal changes during pregnancy also shape nipples so that baby can more easily latch on.
India’s central biotech regulator, Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC), cleared the genetically modified (GM) Mustard for commercial cultivation and recommended its approval to the environment ministry.
The mustard hybrid was developed with transgenic technologies by a team led by Deepak Pental, professor of Genetics at Delhi University.
Only the second food crop to get clearance from the central regulator
Students in China are seeking the help of plastic surgeons with hopes that enhancing their physical appearance can give them better chances at job interviews. Students were greatly influenced by their parents who undergo cosmetic procedures themselves.
The doctors suggest that Shania had regular Botox and filler injections and also underwent a nonsurgical treatment that uses ultrasound waves to tighten and tone skin.
According to the Huffington Post, 91% of plastic surgery patients are women and only 9% are men. Majority of women are interested in breast implants and rhinoplasty, while men commonly ask for non-invasive procedures, such as Botox for a youthful appearance, or surgical procedures to combat common fat deposit areas, such as the stomach.
Cosmetic procedures are on the rise. Removing fat from places where it is unwanted and injecting it to shore up a sagging chin, buttock or breast is a big trend. Patients aren’t shy about what they’re tweaking
The surgery is carried out to reshape patients features based on a set of beauty standards, which are accepted by the cultural-societal perception of beauty of each geographical region.
Patients needing major heart surgery, hip operations , cataracts or even looking for breast augmentation, nose job, body contouring are using the internet to book operations to be carried out thousands of miles away.
There is considerable concern regarding a future where industries around the world will face shortage of high quality science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers to meet the demands of the labor market. This is definitely a point of concern, especially since robots, AIs and chips would be running the future generation.
Leaving aside getting a job, even for a student of today, citizen of tomorrow to even comment on issues around them like what kind of robots should be employed at their office or home or what would be the impact of carbon foodprint or what technology should be applied to make their work done most efficiently, they must be aware of science and technology.
It is important to invest in STEM education to ensure a future talent pipeline, it’s just as important to have a scientifically-literate population to understand why we need to do so. – Ron Mobed, CEO Elseveir
One day we’re going to look back and whatever this era will get called, it’s going to put a premium on math and science. We should prepare our future workforce differently. – Ginni Rometty, CEO, IBM
Why is this happening ?
Currently Science learning is more of mugging up and boring with less focus on understanding it with appropriate reasoning and facts.
Would like to share a small story from Einstein’s life…..
Men are turning bald as early as in their 20s. This is definitely was not the case in our father’s generation where men in 40s walked around with a full crop of hair . About 85% of men will have major hair thinning by the time they’re 50. Some guys will start to lose theirs before they turn even 21.
Different ethnic groups show varying susceptibility levels to pattern baldness. Chinese, blacks and Native Americans are more likely to keep a full head of hair than whites.
Four main reasons that makes hair fall rate so bad: stress, bad habits, pollution and poor nutrition
