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.

US surgeons to carry out penis transplantation

Surgeons all set to carry out penis transplant for wounded war veterans of United States. The ultimate objective of this is to restore urinary and sexual functions of those who suffer severe genital injuries during war.

The world's first successful penis transplant was carried out in South Africa, last year. The team at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) plan to operate on 60 veterans as part of a trial. The first procedure will involve a penis donated by a young deceased donor, with his family's permission. And according to the team at JHU the hope for the veteran is that sensation will return within six to 12 months.

The chances for one to father own child will be depending on the extent of the injury and success of the operation. Only one successful transplant has taken place before and makes it highly risky. Like other major transplant surgery the operation carries risks such as infections or bleeding during the procedure. And the side-effects of taking life-long anti-rejection drugs is also to be considered. Patients will also be screened extensively to make sure they can cope with the psychological impacts of surgery. There have been concerns with other complex operations - hand and face transplants for example - that patients may find it difficult to accept the donated organs as their own.

Recent research involving young military personnel suggests 7% suffer genital injuries in combat. Many are due to blast injuries from improvised explosive devices which are being increasingly deployed. And though protective gear exists, researchers say some soldiers choose not to wear it as it can get in the way of them moving around quickly. Only two other penis transplants have previously been reported. One took place in China in 2006. Accounts suggested the operation went well, but the penis was later rejected. The other operation took place in South Africa, involving a young man who had been left with just 1cm of his original penis as a result of a botched circumcision. His medical team said there was extensive discussion about whether the operation, which is not life-saving in the same way as a heart transplant, was ethical.

Severe psychological stress lowers ability to bear physical pain

Psychological stress describes what people feel when they are under mental, physical, or emotional pressure. Although it is normal to experience some psychological stress from time to time, people who experience high levels of psychological stress or who experience it repeatedly over a long period of time may develop health problems.

Stress can be caused both by daily responsibilities and routine events, as well as by more unusual events, such as a trauma or illness in oneself or a close family member. When people feel that they are unable to manage or control changes caused by cancer or normal life activities, they are in distress. A new study has found that high amount of psychological stress has harmful effect on the body's ability to modulate physical pain.

Prof. Ruth Defrin of Physical Therapy at TAU's said that the type of stress and magnitude of its appraisal actually determines its interaction with the pain system, so if the perceived stress was high, the pain modulation capabilities would be more dysfunctional. Prof. Defrin further added that previous studies have always suggested that chronic stress was far more damaging than acute stress, as it not only dysfunction pain modulation capabilities but also leads to chronic pain and systemic illness.

The researcher concluded and advised to do everything in a controlled power and adopt relaxation and stress reduction techniques as well as therapies to reduce the amount of stress in life. The study is published in the journal PAIN.

Beef controversy in India into a different medical direct

Beef controversy in India into a new lead as veteran scientist PM Bhargava returns his ‘Padma Bhusan’ in protest against alleged rise in intolerance in the country on the context of beef ban controversy. He says that ancient Indian scriptures imposed no bar in eating beef and at times Ayurveda prescribed beef for those suffering from the loss of flesh due to disorders caused by an excess of irregular fever, dry cough, fatigue, and also in cases of excessive appetite resulting from hard manual labour.

In India beef is not just a food, but a political tool which initiates a lot of controversy. As the pro-Hindu political group who says cow is a divine animal according to Hinduism, and it should not be killed but worshipped, wants it banned in India. Controversies are flourishing as the Muslim community get haunted by the fundamentalists among the Hindu group.

The real issue to be discussed for the ultimate benefit of human race is that, different streams of medicines say different things about beef. As Ayurveda supports beef, Modern medical science says that beef causes a lot of health issues. This is a real complicated issue when it comes to a point where whom should we follow.

Ebola Outbreak: Sierra Leone president blames WHO

West African country Sierra Leone’s president Ernest Bai Koroma blames UN’s World Health Organisation (WHO) for the delays in emergency assistance while sharing his frustrations hours before the country declared free of Ebola virus on last Saturday. Report indicates that around 4000 people died of Ebola in Sierra Leone alone. He says “"we wanted to move on... but the advice was to the contrary”. He said his government had to tolerate with the delays because international organisations such as the WHO "were the experts".

More than 19 months on from the first confirmed case recorded on 23 March 2014, 11,314 people have been reported as having died from the disease in six countries; Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, the US and Mali. The total number of reported cases is more than 28,607.

Ebola is a serious infectious illness which often proves fatal. The virus, which is thought to have originated in fruit bats, was first detected in 1976 in an outbreak near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. People are infected when they have direct contact through broken skin, or the mouth and nose, with the blood, vomit, faeces or bodily fluids of someone with Ebola. The virus can be present in urine and semen too. Infection may also occur through direct contact with contaminated bedding, clothing and surfaces - but only through broken skin. It is still unclear how long the virus exists on surfaces but there is some evidence to suggest it can last up to six days. Bleach and chlorine can kill Ebola. The disease is not airborne, like flu. Very close direct contact with an infected person is required for the virus to be passed to another person.

Study identifies genetic mutation in those who behave reckless when drunk

University of Helsinki researchers have identified a genetic mutation which renders carriers susceptible to particularly impulsive and reckless behavior when drunk. More than one hundred thousand Finns carry this mutation. Many Finns know somebody whose behavior becomes excessively strange and erratic when drunk. They are said to be unable to "hold their liquor," and others are surprised at how inebriated they become from just a small amount of alcohol. Since the trait seems permanent, it can be assumed that there are underlying biological factors.

If these results prove significant in larger clinical samples of individual patients who suffer greatly from difficulties in impulse control, several preventive measures could be taken. The most important measure would obviously be controlling the consumption of alcohol. Other measures would include attempting to achieve control over behavior through cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy or medication.

Apart from the putative effect on the health of Finnish population, the discovery of this biological mechanism may be groundbreaking in understanding the role of the serotonin 2B receptor in humans. Novel neurobiological research is becoming increasingly aware of the fact that the expression of a gene -- that is, the gene's production of proteins can be affected in various ways. The findings may elucidate the role of the serotonin 2B receptor in the health of any given population. Moreover, increasing knowledge of the function of the serotonin 2B receptor may lead to new pharmacological innovations, since no medications specific to it are presently available.

The discovery is based on long-term research cooperation between the University of Helsinki Psychiatry Clinic and the Dr David Goldman's laboratory of Neurogenetics at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the United States.
