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.

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.

Simple blood test can detect risk of dementia

Now you can test the possibility of developing dementia with a prick of a needle. As opposed to cardiovascular diseases, where the level of cholesterol in our blood indicates the risk of cardiac arrest, there are no such trustworthy markers in our blood in terms of diagnosing the risk of dementia setting in. However, Scientists at Rigshopitalet, Herlev Hospital and the University of Copenhagen have now identified a new biomarker, measurable in a simple blood test, which will help predict the onset of dementia.

Assistant clinical and research professor Ruth Frikke-Schmidt, said that the blood test would help provide a more precise risk evaluation of a citizen's risk of developing dementia later in life. The blood test would enable an earlier and more focused prevention effort, thus prolonging the onset of the illness and raising the individual's quality of life, she added. Researchers hope that with time, this new blood test will be applicable in clinical practice.

In the study, researchers show that a low level of the biomarker, the so-called apolipoprotein E, in our blood, increases the risk of developing dementia in the future. This was revealed in comprehensive studies of the general public, the Herlev-Oesterbro Study and the Oesterbro Study, involving 76,000 people. The study is published in th internationally acclaimed journal, the Annals of Neurology.

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.

Taking medication to newer level

A craftsman made a living duplicate of Vincent Van Gogh's ear utilizing a 3-D printer. It may not set the craftsmanship world on its ear, yet 3-D printing could take drug to another level. It is now yielded skin, bone, veins, heart and liver, and also made-to-request non-natural appendages and surgical implants. Furthermore, an ear, developed from the DNA of van Gogh's sibling's great grandson. Right now it is possible with working human organs.

One day you'll have the capacity to regrow lost bone. Body shops - those that handle the repair of harmed and broken-down people, not autos - will have parts more approaches to settle your case. Researchers now can make exclusively fitted molds for parts of your skeleton and joints. They utilize stem cells of adult to develop bone and ligament to fill in shabby or broken, repair breaks, and seal the cracks.

Shots loaded with to a great degree small robots may get to be a piece of your yearly health schedule. Nanobots, littler than cells, can be customized to act like robocops to protect against infections and mutated cells, to search them in the body and to free you of intruders. Later on, specialists will draw robot-rich arrangements into syringes and infuse them into your body. These protectors will shroud themselves to survive your defense mechanism and after that make and convey medication.

Not long from now, here is the manner by which treatment will enhance for a wide range of growth. Specialists can as of now distinguish qualities that cause numerous sorts of acquired disease and they are endeavoring to nail down the rest. Medications tomorrow will be more customized, custom-made, and intended to hit the exact targets - from cells to the molecules inside them. The reactions of new medications will be a great deal less extreme than today's chemo.

Worm gets women pregnant

A study suggests that infection with a species of worm increases the fertility of women. A study of 986 indigenous women in Bolivia indicated a lifetime of Ascaris Lumbricoides, (a type of roundworm) infection alters the immune system to make it easier to become pregnant. But while Ascaris Lumbricoides increased fertility in the nine-year study, hookworms had the opposite effect, leading to three fewer children across a lifetime.

About 70% of the population has a parasitic worm infection in Bolivia. Up to a third of the world's population also lives with such infections. Ascaris Lumbricoides is the giant roundworm of humans, growing to a length of up to 35 cm (14 in). It is one of several species of Ascaris. An ascarid nematode of the phylum Nematoda, it is the largest and most common parasitic worm in humans. This organism is responsible for the disease Ascaris, a type of Helminthiasis and one of the groups of neglected tropical diseases. An estimated one-sixth of the human population is infected by A. Lumbricoides or another roundworm. Ascaris is prevalent worldwide, especially in tropical and subtropical countries.

Experts say that the findings could lead to "novel fertility enhancing drugs".
