Paracetamol (acetaminophen) – a name we have identified with fever and pain. A drug we have consumed the most in our life. The first drug (most probably) we have tasted. A drug which will always be there in side packet or cupboard. A common household drug. Do we really know enough about this drug ?
Scientific insights to help you stick to your new year resolution this time
We said bye to 2016 and are in the first week of 2017. Right time to make this year’s new year resolutions. As records says nearly 45% people make new year resolutions but less than 10% stick to their decisions. Despite repeated failings, we keep trying. This yearly tradition dates as far back as Ancient Rome. I am sure if you look into this year’s list there would be some carry over’s from last year like lose weight, quit smoking, join gym, restrict gadget usage and so on.

“Science is complex, I hate science especially mathematics”, majority of us fall in this group. At least once in lifetime you would have made this statement. But then we all enjoy the fruits of science. We love using the internet, driving cars, watching television, going in an airplane and so on. So if the fruits of science is so good, its seeds cannot be that bad. We do so many science experiments daily like making dough, baking cakes, wine making, taking pills and many more. We keep reading on topics related to best solution for hair growth, best way to lose weight, manage your ‘x-disease’ doing this etc without knowing what’s the science behind it or how does it actually works.
