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.

UK govt join hands with Bill Gates to set up £1bn to fight malaria

UK government in association with Microsoft founder Bill Gates raises one billion to fight malaria. The fund is named after Sir Ronald Ross who became Britain's first Nobel Prize winner in 1902 for his discovery that malaria is transmitted by mosquitoes.

The number of people dying from malaria is falling but a child still dies from the disease every minute in Africa. The £1bn will come from the UK's overseas aid budget over the next five years. Of the total: £115m is earmarked for research into new drugs, diagnostics and insecticides for Malaria, TB and other infectious diseases and a further £188m will be spent on improving bio defences and rapid response systems to fast-spreading epidemics such as Ebola.

A report published in the journal Nature earlier this year showed 663 million cases of malaria have been prevented in Africa as a result of concerted efforts to tackle the disease since 2000.Researchers from Oxford University attributed the reduction mostly to bed nets.

Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites. The parasites are spread to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes, called "malaria vectors.”

Malaria is an acute febrile illness. In a non-immune individual, symptoms appear 7 days or more (usually 10–15 days) after the infective mosquito bite. The first symptoms – fever, headache, chills and vomiting – may be mild and difficult to recognize as malaria. If not treated within 24 hours, P. falciparum malaria can progress to severe illness, often leading to death.

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.

Use of antibiotics worsening swine flu patients condition: Expert

Amid swine flu spreading to different parts of the country, experts have witnessed a rise in new cases as well as deaths every day and have cautioned that misuse of antibiotics could worsen the condition of patients suffering from the disease. Dr Kamlesh Upadhyay, swine flu director of Gujarat and who is also in-charge of swine flu department in Civil Hospital said that taking antibiotics instead of anti-virals is leading the condition of H1N1 patients critical, reported an English Daily.

He asked pregnant women, who are in high risk group with high mortality rates of the disease to take swine flu vaccination. He also said that family members of pregnant women should take vaccination as a preventive measure.

Dr Upadhyay said that they found most of the patients admitted, with serious complications due to either the delay in getting treatment or doctors putting them on antibiotics which would not help in viral fever. He further added that there is a tradition of misusing antibiotics and instead using anti-viral medicines will be of greater help. The national capital on Sunday recorded the sixth death due to swine flu after a 55-year-old man succumbed to H1N1 virus at a private hospital in New Delhi.

Unethical medical trials in France

The oral trial was being conducted by a private laboratory in the north-western city of Rennes, Marisol Touraine said. The trial has been suspended and the firm is recalling the volunteers. It is unclear how many people are involved.

Media reports that the drug is a cannabis-based painkiller have been denied by the health ministry. The Paris prosecutor's office said an investigation had been opened. The drug was taken in a licensed laboratory, the ministry said in a statement (in French).The study was a Phase I clinical trial, in which healthy volunteers take the medication to evaluate the safety of its use, the ministry said.

Phase I tests for safety
A small number of people, sometimes healthy, and sometimes with a medical condition, are given a tiny dose of the drug under careful supervision, not to test if the drug works, but in order to check for any side effects

Phase II
Sees the drug given to people who have a medical condition to see if it does indeed help them Phase III Trials are only for medicines or devices that have already passed the first two stages, and involve them being compared to existing treatments or a placebo. The trials often last a year or more, involving several thousand patients

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.
