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.

How Exercise Keeps Depression at Bay

It is shown and proved by researchers that physical exercise has many advantages and beneficial effects. They have also come to a conclusion that exercise helps shield your brain from stress induced depression.
Practicing or following a daily course of exercising has ability to induce changes in skeletal muscles that can clear the blood of a substance that gets accumulated during stress and is harmful to the brain health. A follow-up to the study found that the effect of exercising lasted longer than those of antidepressants.
It was also found that people who did daily work outs and regardless of undergoing any treatment were originally less likely to fall into depression.

A study which was published in 2005, has shown that walking fast (brisk walking) for about 35 minutes a day five times a week can have a significant effect and influence on mild to moderate depression signs. "Skeletal muscle appears to have a detoxification effect that, when activated, can protect the brain from insults and related mental illness," said principal investigator Jorge Ruas from Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Besides helping you cop-up with depression, regular exercising offers you other health benefits too namely lowering blood pressure, protecting you from heart diseases and other forms of cancer.
How often you need exercise to keep away depression is not very evident but half an hour of work outs such a brisk walking, and other exercise forms proves to be beneficial.

Swine flu claims 38 more lives, death toll now 812

Swine flu claimed 38 more lives in India taking the death toll to 812 with Rajasthan and Gujarat among the worst hit states with 212 and 207 fatalities respectively, as the total number of affected crossed 13,000.

According to Health Ministry figures released today, the total number of deaths due to the disease has now reached 812 while 13,688 people have been affected with the H1N1 virus across the country.

Health Ministry officials had yesterday said that the number of people affected by swine flu was 12,963 while deaths caused by the infection was 774 as per figures available till February 20. A senior health official said that in comparison to yesterday, there has been a dip in the number of fresh positive cases.

Seven more persons succumbed to swine flu in Rajasthan. Out of 4,318 patients who tested positive for the HINI virus, 212 have died since January 1, an official of Medical and Health Directorate (MHD) said in Jaipur. In Gujarat, 10 more people died of the disease taking the death toll to 207, according to an official release.

In Maharashtra, 99 people have lost their lives with seven more deaths being reported in the state, according to Public Health Minister Dr Deepak Sawant. SIn Jammu and Kashmir, one more patient died of swine flu, taking the toll to five, while 119 have tested positive for the disease so far, officials said.

Early deafness diagnosis improves teenagers reading skills

A new research says that early detection of deafness in babies is related to better reading skills later in their lives. Deafness if identified and treated at an earlier stage would give out better results. "We believe that the early superiority in the reading skills of the children who were screened may have enabled them to read more demanding material more frequently than their peers with later confirmed hearing difficulties," said lead researcher Colin Kennedy, professor at the University of Southampton in Britain. Follow up assessments when the children were aged eight showed those who were screened at birth had better language skills than those children who were not screened. This new study has now shown that longer term benefits of early detection also occur following assessments at aged 17.

"Screening all babies for hearing impairment at birth enables families to have the information they need to support their baby's development, leads to benefits of practical importance at primary school and now, secondary school and further education," Kennedy added. The study assessed the teenagers level of reading development and compared them to deaf teenagers who were not screened as newborn babies. The gap between the early and late confirmed groups had doubled between the two assessments. The study was published in the journal Archives of Disease in Childhood.

Gene decides why some kids turn into troubled adults

A recent study and research conducted at Duke University have identified a gene variant that may serve as a marker for children who are the most susceptible and vulnerable group of society. This study triggers an understanding in the biology of what makes a child sensitive to both positive and negative situations and environment. "This gives us an important clue about some of the children who need help the most" said Dustin Albert, research scientist at the Duke University's Centre for Child and Family Policy. The study found that children from high-risk backgrounds who also carried a certain common gene variant were extremely likely to develop serious problems as adults left untreated, 75 percent with the gene variant developed psychological problems by age 25, including alcohol abuse, substance abuse and antisocial personality disorder.

The picture changed dramatically, though, when children with the gene variant participated in an intensive program called the Fast Track Project. After receiving support services in childhood, just 18 percent developed psychopathology as adults.

"It is a hopeful finding. The children we studied were very susceptible to stress. But far from being doomed, they were instead particularly responsive to help” Albert added. The findings could be a first step toward potential personalized treatments for some of society's most troubled children. The study appeared in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management.

Anaesthetics could cause long-term memory loss

A new research has come out with a finding that while anaesthetics help patients undergo critical surgery, they would also result in long-term cognitive impairment such as memory loss.
Factors such as age, health, type of surgery and anaesthetics, would enhance when more intricate procedures are carried out, the researchers said.

Anaesthetics activate memory-loss receptors in the brain, ensuring that patients do not remember traumatic events during surgery and the researchers found that the activity of memory loss receptors remains long after the drugs have left the patient's system.

Patients and even many doctors claim that anesthetics do not bear long term consequences. New research provides us with an assumption that how these drugs work is wrong, as per Beverley Orser, professor at the University of Toronto in Canada.
Half of the patients, who undergo anaesthesia and surgery, would experience some sort of cognitive impairment for example, memory loss- at hospital discharge and one tenth of the sufferers still suffer from cognitive impairments three months later.

"Anesthetics do not put you to sleep – they induce a pharmacological coma. We shouldn't take these drugs lightly," Orser concluded. The study was published today in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
