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.
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…..
Dentistry has come a long way since the olden times, when people in many cultures believed that cavities were holes bored by tooth worms. This is the age of digital dentistry. Usage of x-rays, dental drills and manual removal of decayed tooth is going to be history soon. The field of dentistry is constantly evolving, changing, and advancing and is becoming more efficient and natural-looking for the patient’s as possible.
Let us take you through some cool developments in dentistry, which surely would be of use to you…..
This is the age of Artificial Intelligence and why should ‘Brushing’ be left behind. Products are already available in the market that are designed to help users improve their oral health, by providing feedback about brushing techniques collected by integrated artificial intelligence (AI). This would be a great hit with parents as they would be able to track their kids brushing habits.
Oral health is an important contributor to overall health and well-being. Oral health touches every aspect of our lives. Oral health means more than just healthy teeth- it includes the health of the gums, oral soft tissues, chewing muscles, the palate, tongue, lips and salivary glands. Good oral health enables an individual to speak, eat and socialize without active disease, discomfort or embarrassment. It is integral to general health and well-being.
We are amidst a global oral disease epidemic, and the statistics are startling: nearly 100 percent of adults have had cavities.
Oral disease is one of the most common public health issues worldwide with significant socio-economic impacts. Oral health is affected on a daily basis by various forms of oral diseases, mainly dental caries and periodontal disease, and occasionally by oral cancer, lesions in HIV/AIDS, mucosal and salivary gland diseases, and orofacial pain and clefts. These oral disorders are collectively the commonest chronic diseases in mankind with great impacts on vita functions, self-esteem, quality of life.
It is currently recognized that oral diseases are worldwide epidemic and a major public health problem.
The facts on Oral health are disturbing : based on WHO
Worldwide, 60–90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities
Globally, about 30% of people aged 65–74 have no natural teeth
16-40% of children in the age range 6 to12 years old are affected by dental trauma due to unsafe playgrounds, unsafe schools, road accidents, or violence
In young children, there is a relationship between dental caries and childhood obesity
Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or cavities, is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in humans
Dental cavities and periodontal disease are major causes of tooth loss
Birth defects such as cleft lip and palate occur in about one per 500–700 of all births.
Severe periodontal (gum) disease, which may result in tooth loss, is found in 15–20% of middle-aged (35-44years) adults
Oral cancer is the eighth most common cancer globally
Oral disease in children and adults is higher among poor and disadvantaged population groups
Almost half (40–50%) of people who are HIV-positive have oral fungal, bacterial or viral infections
Because of the high prevalence and recurrent cumulative nature of caries and periodontal disease, the mouth is among the most expensive parts of the body to treat in some countries such as Japan, Australia and Germany
Several oral diseases are linked to non-communicable chronic diseases or conditions that share common risk factors, such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, cardiovascular disease
With the growing consumption of sugar in the developing world as a result of westernization, the levels of dental decay are likely to rise
Women desire chocolate much more than men. Women crave chocolate, and approximately half of the cravers crave it specifically around the onset of menstruation. Chocolate cravings appear to exist in 40% of females and 15% of males, three fourths of whom claim that no other substance will appease their desire.
Chocolate affect the brain, leading to an increase in neurotransmitters and dopamine and a feeling of happiness sets in. Chocolate increases serotonin in the brain, a neurotransmitter responsible for better mood, sleep, and reduction of anxiety. Women have a natural decrease in serotonin in the brain in the week before menstruation, so this may partially explain the specific craving for chocolate during this time.
Chocolate affects the brain of women in a different way. The brain of some men and women were scanned using MRI and it was found that chocolate affected the activity of the amygdala more in the brain of women. The Amygdala is a part of the brain that can affect emotions and sexual desire.
Scientists have speculated that chocolate consumption may be even motivated by magnesium deficiency, especially because magnesium deficiency is associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Chocolate and cocoa powder both contain exceptionally high concentrations of this nutrient.
Angelina Jolie hit the news headlines in early 2013 by announcing her decision to go for elective double mastectomy after testing positive for mutated BRCA1. People from around the world suddenly came to know about ‘ Predictive Genetic Testing’. The impact was really big. A retrospective study performed at a Toronto hospital in 2014, for example, reported that the number of women referred for genetic counseling skyrocketed by 90 percent in the six months after Jolie’s announcement. The number of women at the hospital identified as BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers during that period jumped by 110 percent.
Why Predictive Genetic Testing is important
“Error” in our genes (called “mutations”) can cause disease and predictive genetic tests help to confirm the disease probability in advance.
Determine whether you would get Cancer or other chronic illness in future
Determine whether your unborn child is prone to genetic disorders like Downs’Syndrome
Complete food, Best growth formulation, Power food, The best health drink – these are tag lines used by various health drink or growth supplement brands. But in reality, there is nothing called complete food. Children need dozens of nutrients every day to maintain growth and development. Offering children the right balance of nutrients –carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals – that can maximize their growth potential and brain development, has become a great challenge for parents. Especially in an age where there are more junk or processed foods than healthier or homemade foods. House becomes a battle ground as children are all in favor of processed foods. Start eating healthy at early years
The best time to start good dietary habits is during the early years. Researchers suggest that the best way to get children to achieve balance in their diet is to teach them very young and lead by example. This is very essential as nutrition in early life play a crucial role in deciding how health will turn out in later life. Diet, exercise and other aspects of children’s daily interaction with the environment have the potential to alter brain health, mental function and physical performance. Rather than blindly following ‘balanced diet chart’, ‘best brain food’, ‘top food for growth’, it’s essential to understand where the bond with food begins and how food, nutrients and human body interact. A deeper understanding about food and human body would help parent to dish out right amount of nutrients for their children.
