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.

Babies Brain Grow Faster

'Baby brains' grow more rapidly
Young babies tend have more rapid brain growth especially male brains. This was found by using advanced scanning techniques. The parts and areas of a brain that had movement developed at a faster rate.

Doctors have been using a measuring tape to measure a baby's head circumference from past many years. Any changes or differences in the growth pattern are checked as in future they may cause problems with the growth and development of the baby. But the tape measurement depends on the shape of the head.

Led by scientists at the University of California, researchers scanned the brains of 87 healthy babies from birth to three months.
Researchers have also found that newborn brains had a growth of 1% a day. Cerebellum, an area in the brain has the highest growth rate which doubles in size over the 90 day period. The region with the tinniest measurement was the hippocampus; this area of brain plays a key role in the memory enhancement.

If there are complications around the time of birth, a child's growth would be hampered in the few months. Examining babies who were born early, researchers have noticed that their brains were 4% smaller than the brains of babies born at full term.
Scientists are on their way to investigate if the alcohol and drug consumption by the pregnant woman affects the brain size of bay at the time of birth.

New type of Brain cells discovered

Researchers have come up with a strange new type of brain cell that sends signals passing through the cell body altogether. The basic blueprint contains a cell body that has neurons which comes in various shapes and sizes. The Neuron cell body consists of some extended cell part that protrudes out called as dendrites and axons.

Dendrites are structures that have got branchlike forms that receives signals from nerve cells and deliver them to cell body. There is a long projection called the axon that helps in processing the signal and passes information to the neighboring cell.

Dendrites are branchlike structures that receive signals from other nerve cells and deliver them to the cell body. The neuron then processes the signals and zaps along information to the next cell via a long projection called the axon.

The newly discovered cells, however, have a different, and until now, unknown process. In these cells, the signals skip the cell body altogether, instead travelling along an axon that projects directly from one of the dendrites.

"We found that in more than half of the cells, the axon does not emerge from the cell body, but arises from a lower dendrite," said study researcher Christian Thome, a neuroscientist at Heidelberg University and the Bernstein Center Heidelberg-Mannheim.

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.

Women are more prone to heart disease than others

A new research has revealed that the hormone estrogen in women plays a key role in regulating two of the most common risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

Researchers at Western University's Robarts Research Institute have identified that an estrogen receptor, previously shown to regulate blood pressure in women, also plays an important role in regulating low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, also known as bad cholesterol, which drives the process that leads to heart disease. Researchers showed that the G-protein coupled estrogen receptor 30 (GPER) when activated by estrogen helps lower LDL cholesterol levels in the blood by inhibiting the protein PCSK-9.

Researcher Ross Feldman said that this is a really important finding because there has always been some indication that estrogen was protective in lowering cholesterol, but they didn't understand how.Feldman added that the mechanism of estrogen's effect was kind of a black box because they didn't know the receptors responsible for doing it.

Feldman continued that what they found is that women who have this same defective GPER, have higher LDL levels, suggesting that the second rate GPER is important not only for blood pressure, but for cholesterol levels as well.

Feldman continued that together, these are the two most powerful risk factors in terms of heart disease and both are adversely affected by having a second-rate GPER. The study is published in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology.

Olive oil may revive a failing heart

A new research has suggested that a strong ingredient in olive oil will hold the key to a beating heart failure. Researchers have also found that, a very commonly found dietary fat called the Oleate, mostly found in olive oil, re fixed and restored proper metabolism of fuel in heart cells in an animal model.

Heart failure and heart attack are entirely two different things. Heart failure is a more fatal or chronic disease condition wherein the heart becomes more bigger and it requires the heart to work harder to pump blood.

As the walls of heart grow thicker, the amount of blood being pumped out comes down or gets diminished and can hence no longer provide the body with enough nutrients. Heart which is on the verge of failing are also unable to function or store the fats that they use for fuel, which are contained within small droplets called lipid bodies in hear muscle cells.

Fats are the primary fuel source of heart and the inability to use those fats, causes the muscle to become starved for energy. Fats failing hearts manage to cut short itself or break down into toxic intermediary by-products that may later on lead to major heart ailments.

Oleate contained in olive oil accelerated the activation level of several genes for enzymes that metabolizes fats. "This gives more proof to the idea that consuming healthy fats like oleate can have a significantly positive effect on cardiac health," Lewandowski said. The findings were published in the journal Circulation.
