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.

Tweets can signal communities heart disease risk: Study

Australian researchers have discovered how social media can serve as an indicator of a community's psychological wellbeing and can predict rates of heart disease.

Social media was "a new frontier for social science research", lead researcher Margaret Kern from the University of Melbourne said in a press statement released here Thursday, Xinhua reported.

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Melbourne and University of Pennsylvania in the US, showed repeated instances of the negative emotive words such as "hate" and "bored" in local community tweets correlated with a higher heart disease rate in those communities, even after variables such as income and education were taken into account. The study, to be published in next month's edition of the leading journal Psychological Science, found positive terms like "wonderful" and "friends" were associated with a lower risk of heart disease.

Hostility and chronic stress are known risk factors for heart disease and, researchers said, using Twitter to identify communities most at risk will significantly lower the current cost of large-scale assessments.

Researchers said their Twitter language prediction system worked significantly better than a model that combined 10 common factors such as smoking status and rates of obesity."Using Twitter as a window into a community's collective mental state may provide a useful tool in epidemiology and for measuring the effectiveness of public-health interventions," Kern said.

Is Hibiscus the new drug to cure Diabetes Naturally

Just like any form of flu, cough and cold, diabetes has become a common disease these days. As of now, there is no particular cure for diabetes. One has to have a healthy lifestyle and also a healthy eating and living pattern to overcome this situation.

Researchers at Assam's Tezpur University and West Begal's Viswa-Bharati University have come to a conclusion that the natural essence and extracts from some particular species of hibiscus plant can help in curing diabetes.

Samir Bhattacharya, emeritus professor, School of Life Sciences (Zoology Department) at Visva-Bharati in Shantiniketan was quoted saying to a news agency: “We found that ferulic acid (FRL), belonging to the polyphenols, extracted from leaves of the plant, has the potential to be a better therapeutic agent for diabetes”.

Diabetic patients have high risk of getting blood pressure too. Research has shown that enjoying or having hibiscus tea on a regular basis is an effective way for curing diabetes with mild to moderate hypertension to lessen their BP levels.

Tea that contains Hibiscus can provide additional health benefits to diabetic patients by enhancing and improving their blood-cholesterol levels.

Scientific studies have proven that regular consumption of this herbal tea containing Hibiscus can increase the HDL cholesterol and reduce 'bad' (LDL) and overall cholesterol levels for diabetics. Hibiscus contains high levels of vitamin C, Iron absorption levels, antioxidant effects and also protection against common cold and flu.

Difficult eaters may have underlying psychological issues

Parents have to take a note! A new study has warned that irritating and bullying your kid may result in change in eating habits and other behavior in kids.
Eating difficulties in childhood can be a sign of some hidden psychological issues, researchers have said. Researchers at the University of Montreal and its affiliated CHU Sainte-Justine children's hospital said that difficult eaters could have underlying psychological issues, after they have found that restrictive behaviour can appear before puberty.

'Many eminent researchers believe that the signs and symptoms of bulimia appear only at adolescence, but similar studies have also suggested that such related problems can also occur a bit earlier too. The problem is under-diagnosed because of a lack of awareness and investigation,' said clinical psychologist and Professor Dominique Meilleur, who led the study.

Kids who underwent health problems such as diabetes and cystic fibrosis, were eliminated from the study. The researchers also made a conclusion that children mostly suffered from problems such as anxiety, mood disorders and attention deficiency.
Across the whole study, about 52 per cent of children were hospitalized at least once because of their wrong food pattern and other 48 per cent were treated as outpatient’s emergency responders.
Around 95 per cent of the children in the study had restrictive eating behaviour, 69.4 per cent were afraid of putting on weight, and 46.6 per cent described themselves as "fat."

New Method Of Treating Genetic Disorders – The Antisense Gene Therapy

Antisense gene therapy is a form of treatment for genetic disorder and wide varieties of diseases like infection, cancer, diabetes, etc. USFDA, during 2014, has approved such drugs like, fomivirsen and retinitis for the treatment of cytomegalovirus and hypercholesterolemia.

This therapy is termed as anti-sense because of the fact that, the synthesis of the mRNA is done by strand with original DNA double helix, which has a complementary strand of DNA called, the anti-sense strand. The RNA strands produced from these DNA are also complementary and the protein produced by this RNA does not have any function.

Type of drug used in Antisense gene therapy

Here the drugs are the “silenced genes”. This therapy is also known as gene silencing technique because, it aims to silence the damaged genes rather than killing it or repairing it.
Using the information present in the genetic code, the proteins are produced in two steps.
1. The genetic code of DNA is transcribed into mRNA, which then travels to the ribosomes.
2. The ribosomes use the information present in mRNA as a tool to build the protein.

In Antisense gene therapy, the silenced gene cannot transcribe a correct mRNA, this further synthesis wrong and function less protein, that are supposed to cause damage to the body or inhibits the synthesis of the proteins that are harmful to the body.

How does antisense gene therapy work?

In antisense gene therapy, small single-stranded pieces of human DNA, known as oligonucleotides (sometimes abbreviated as oligos) are inserted into cells, these are chemically engineered to form a specific mRNA in the cell. The artificial mRNA inhibit the protein from being produced in one of two ways
1. By physically blocking translation of the mRNA
2. By producing an enzyme known as RNase H to degrade the mRNA Challenges.

Too much texting bad for your spine

Depending on the angle at which you are texting and messaging, one of the alarming research has come out with the fact that even the simple way of texting can exert nearly 23 kg of pressure on your spine and back. There is always an incrementally increased stress level that leads to cervical spine problems.

Your spine is the healthiest when your ears fall on the same plane as your shoulders and your shoulder blades tend to get retracted.

Without any related adjustments we usually add too much of stress on our spine. The varying degree of curvature would have a great impact on a person's spine.

At zero degrees of tilt, the resting pressure is equal to the weight of the person’s head - roughly 4.5 kg-5.5 kg. But for each 15 degrees of tilt, the pressure increases. At 15 degrees, a person feels 12 kg of pressure; at 30 degrees, it ups to 18 kg. At 60 degrees, a person should feel roughly 27 kg of force on the spine. People use mobile devices for roughly two to four hours a day, meaning our necks stay bent for 700 to 1,400 hours in a given year.

While it is nearly impossible to avoid the technologies that cause these issues, individuals should make an effort to look at their phones with a neutral spine and to avoid spending hours each day hunched over, the author suggested.

People should stop holding their phones by their waists and surgeons should help minimize post-surgery complications by keeping patient behaviors in mind.
