Being a Women

“Behind every successful man there is a woman”. Not only in the case of a man but this saying stands for the functioning of the whole world. She is said to be the ultimate strength and support behind the success of an individual. There is a lot of differenciation and discrimination in the name of gender as males and females. Nevertheless this difference do exist in nature from time immemorial.

A female draws out various characteristics which is different from that of a male, varying from factors such as physical, mental. biological and reproductive. These are inborn and inbuilt right from the time a mother concieves a female child.
Womanhood is the period in a females life after she has passed through childhood and adolescence, generally around the age 18. Women have three very important physiological functions totally absent in men--menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation.Each of these mechanisms influences the behavioural patterns of a female greatly.
Another such noticable factor could be psycological.
Women prefer to share and care more, she would discuss and figure out a solution for a problem which they face by discussing it with her friends. She is more emotionally depended and possess aa emotional mind when compared to that of men. But men on the other hand seem to be independent and keep things more to themselves. But unfortunately, women are more prone to different types of depressions due to their emotional weakness.
Communication skills and emotional intelligence are found to be better in females. They tend to be more group-oriented.
Women can be, and many are, greatly affected by hormone fluctuations. Hormonal changes in female body is much more prominant and undergoes changes as the age advances. The main two hormones generated in female body are estrogen and progestrone. Estrogen helps the uterus grow, maintains the uterine lining to protect the budding baby. Progesterone has characteristics that balance and counteract the adverse effects that estrogen can have.Progesterone is important mainly for the preparation of the endometrium for implantation of the egg during pregnancy and the maintenance of pregnancy.
women are more often portrayed as being under the influence of their hormones, as being subject to hormonal tides or hormonal storms.

Women face many injustices and inequalities globally, both in terms of economic factors and human rights. An often overlooked aspect of this phenomenon is their health, so its atmost important that proper diet and care are taken as far as female health is concerned.
A healthy diet can help reduce PMS(pre-menstrual syndrome), boost fertility, make pregnancy and nursing easier. It provides one with energy, maintaining weight and keeps you looking good.

God has created women in such a way that, she can take her generation forward by giving birth to new offsprings. The ideal time to start learning about pregnancy is not when a woman is already pregnant but much before that.
For a woman, pregnancy planning means learning everything she can about how her own health and that of her baby can be optimized. She is capable of conceiving from the time she attains puberty till the time of menopause.
A female body is also highly prone to diseases too due to its sensitive features or even due to malnutrition which leads to less immunity. Many such diseases are gallstones, migraine headaches,
osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure(hypertension) etc.
Women with Osteoporosis have weak bones which tend to break. Osteoporosis in the vertebrae can cause serious problems for women. A fracture in this area occurs from day-to-day activities like climbing stairs, lifting objects, or bending forward

 

Research has also revealed the genetic and molecular basis of a number of gender-based differences in health and disease, some of which are related to genotype — XX in the female and XY in the male.
Due to such less immune resistance women have got higher chances of developing Autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases can affect virtually every site in the body.

Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 8% of the population, 78% of whom are women. It is still unkown as to what reasons are there behind such a prevalence. One of the factors behind it could be genetic as it can be passed on from a mother to her offspring.

Blood pressure becoming common among youngsters

High blood pressure has become very common among youngsters these days due to the amount of stress in todays life. High blood pressure mostly occurs due to hereditary reasons as well. Dr Vijay D'Silva, medical director of a cardiac hospital, says, 'Apart from work-related stress, alcohol and smoking and other such related bad habits also lead young people become more prone to high blood pressure and heart ailments. This problem arises at a later stage in life.

What exactly causes high blood pressure:
High blood pressure, weight gain etc happens as a result of inadequate physical activity and stress. When you gain weight your heart finds it really difficult to pump enough blood to the arteries. This condition ultimately leads to high blood pressure and makes you more prone and vulnerable to other fatal diseases.

Excess amount of salt in your diet:
If your salt intake exceeds, it might give rise to high blood pressure at a later stage. As per Dr D'Silva, “The amount of salt that we put while cooking is enough for you. Adding more of raw salt to your diet will result in high BP conditions. Stress is another main factor along with unhealthy lifestyle practices. Lifestyle disorders can also be blamed for high blood pressure in youngsters.

Parents want genome sequencing for newborns

As per a new study most parents irrespective of their demographic background are very much keen to have genomic sequencing done for their newborns that would make possible for the doctors to have a personalized medicine to guide therapeutic intervention.

As next-generation genome sequencing is integrated into clinical practice, researchers are increasingly interested in genomic testing to provide valuable personalized health information for newborns beyond what existing standard newborn genetic screening produces. But such a testing, performed just after birth, requires the interest and consent of the infant's parents.

The human genome is made up of over 3 billion genetic letters- A, C, G, and T. These are known as DNA nucleotides and represent pieces of DNA called adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) involves using advanced technology to determine the order of these nucleotides within the genome. As well as enabling quicker and simpler gene discovery, scientists say that WGS may reveal previously unknown genes that contribute to diseases and that the process could lead to personalized treatment methods. Furthermore, WGS could lead to identification of lifestyle and environmental factors that affect genetic predisposition.

The study, led by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and Boston Children's Hospital, found that the majority of parents surveyed were interested in newborn genomic testing. Several other studies have measured parents' interest in newborn genomic screening but none focused on new parents in the first 48 hours.

Hand gestures help kids learn better

According to a recent study, spontaneous gestures would help children learn things in a better manner.
Children(those who can hear) in their growing stage use more of gestures and actions as they acquire full-fledged spoken language slowly and gradually. These gestures and word combinations predicts how the child has picked up the language.

Susan Goldin-Meadow, a professor in department of psychology at University of Chicago, said that children always tend to understand things through gestures and actions before they are able to express it them in speech.
She also examined how gestures help learn and hear even the deaf and dumb children. Actions and gestures are one of the most flexible ways of communicating. If necessary, that can itself become a language, she added.

In the early years of growth(when the child is at 11 or 12 months old), they mostly use iconic gestures. For example, the show fight movements by punching in air. As they grow older the spoken language(verbal communication) becomes stronger and hence, the usage of gestures tend to lessen.
The ways in which gestures are used are an indication of the developmental or conceptual ability of children.
Gestures are also meant to have joint attention. When a child uses gestures to point out someone or something, the parent makes him clear with the name of the object and then the whole conversation is based on the object of concern, which causes the child to adapt things faster.

Healthy Lifestyle May Help 4 out of 5 Men Prevent Heart Attacks

A new study has revealed that 80 percent of men could come out of heart attacks and other related heart ailments by following a healthy lifestyle choices. Coronary events in men such as healthy lifestyle that includes maintaining a healthy weight and consuming a healthy diet. Exercising, working out, quitting smoking and moderating alcohol intake can help prevent coronary intake in men.

While mortality from heart ailments and diseases has come down in recent years, with much of the reduction attributed to medical procedures and therapies, the researchers have said that prevention by adopting a healthy lifestyle will eradicate potential side effects of medicine intake and were found to be more cost effective for population wide reductions in coronary heart disease. The practitioners and researchers have come out with the fact that there is a reduction in the risk for heart disease.

The researchers found a noticeable reduction in the risk for heart attack for every individual lifestyle factor that participants had practiced. For example, consumption of a low-risk diet together with a small amount of alcohol in moderation led to about 35 percent less risk of generating heart attack compared to high-risk groups, those who practice none of the low-risk factors.

Losing weight, quitting smoking may reduce risk of old age Dementia

A new study has showed that old age dementia can be controlled by losing weight, quitting smoking and also reduces the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Dementia is not just a term or single disease in itself, but it is rather a general term that would show some symptoms such as memory impairments, communication and thinking problems etc.

the researchers have also suggested that dementia can be included as a part national public health prevention and detection programs along with some other non communicable diseases. It is always better to treat this at the earliest than too late to make healthy lifestyle changes.

The World Alzheimer's Report 2014 commissioned by Alzheimer's disease International said that dementia's links to physical health could be effective at fending off dementia even in later life.

It is founded that Diabetes can hamper a person's risk of developing Dementia by about 50 percent. Obesity and lack of physical activity leads to high blood pressure, which is been associated with many cases of dementia.

Marc Wortmann, executive director of Alzheimer's Disease International, said that the risk factors for dementia "overlap" with those of other major non-communicable diseases. It would draw out similarities with that of many forms of non-communicable diseases.

George McNamara, head of policy at the UK's Alzheimer's Society, said many lifestyle factors play a key role in the development of dementia.
