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.

Talk therapy lowers suicide risk

Talk therapy is emerging as an important alternative to medication with respect to gain a control over repeated suicidal attempts. A very recent study shows that just 6 to 10 talk therapy sessions led to as less as 26 percent fewer suicidal attempts in five years in the group that has received treatment as compared to a group that did not, the researchers concluded.

The psycho-social treatment provides support called notmedication is very much beneficial to prevent suicide in a group that is already at high risk of dying by suicide. The researchers have also put stress on the fact that it might be really valuable to broadly put forth or implement therapy programs for people who have tried of committing suicides in the past.

The researchers then compared their outcomes over time with 17,304 people who had attempted suicide and looked similar on 31 factors but had not gone for treatment afterward. After five years, there were 26 percent fewer suicides in the group that had been treated with psycho-social therapy following their attempt.

The therapy itself varied depending on the individual needs of the patient so the researchers cannot say exactly what the "active ingredient" was that inoculated many against future suicide attempts. A study was published online in the journal Lancet Psychiatry.

A glass of wine a day good for heart than none at all: Study

Drinking a small glass of wine a day may give you a better chance of avoiding heart failure than those who don't drink at all, according to scientists.

In a new study, scientists have discovered that middle-aged men who drink up to seven small glasses of wine or about three and a half pints of beer a week are 20 per cent less likely to develop heart failure when compared to teetotalers.

The study also found that the apparent protective effects were more marginal in women, but up to seven drinks a week still gave moderate female drinkers a 16 per cent reduced risk of heart failure over their non-drinking counterparts.

Researcher Scott Solomon of Harvard Medical School in Boston, said that these findings suggest that drinking alcohol in moderation does not contribute to an increased risk of heart failure and may even be protective.

He added that the study shows there is an association between drinking moderate amounts of alcohol and a lower risk of heart failure but this does not necessarily mean that moderate alcohol consumption causes the lowered risk. However, researchers cautioned that the findings shouldn't be used as an excuse to booze it up as heavy alcohol use is certainly a risk factor.

3D printing points way to smarter cancer treatment

Now doctors can target the tumor growth more effectively and precisely as British scientists have developed a new form of 3D printing putting it to a work where in there is a replica model being developed of the cancerous body part.

The new cancer work involves printing 3D "phantoms" of tumors and organs based on CT scans taken of patients during treatment. These plastic molds can be filled with liquid, allowing experts see in detail the flow of so-called radio pharmaceuticals.

Radio pharmaceuticals are drugs containing radioactive material that may be injected into a vein, taken by mouth or placed in a body cavity. The challenge is to give a dose that is high enough to kill cancer cells, without causing excessive collateral damage to healthy tissue. Glenn Flux, head of radioisotope physics at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, believes accurate modeling will allow doctors in future to fine-tune dosing, resulting in the likely routine use of such 3D printouts.

Many chances of acquiring tumors that consists of thyroid cancer, cancer of nerves cells in children and certain other tumors that spread to the bones can also be diagnosed and detected. The team in London used a 3D printer from Stratasys, one of the leading suppliers of high-end machines.

MIT neuroscientists develop new computer that matches primate brain

A team of neuroscientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has found that one of the latest generation of computer networks – called “deep neural networks" – matches the primate brain. ‘This improved understanding of how the primate brain works could lead to better artificial intelligence and, someday, lead to new ways to repair visual dysfunction,’ said Charles Cadieu from MIT’s McGovern Institute for Brain Research and the paper’s lead author.

For decades, neuroscientists have been trying to design computer networks that can mimic visual skills such as recognizing objects which the human brain does very accurately and quickly. Until now, no computer model has been able to match the primate brain at visual object recognition during a brief glance.

‘The new model encapsulates our current best understanding as to what is going on in this previously mysterious portion of the brain,’ said James DiCarlo, professor of neuroscience and head of MIT’s department of brain and cognitive sciences. For this study, the team of researchers first measured the brain’s object recognition ability. This allowed them to see the neural representation – the population of neurons that respond – for every object that the animals looked at.

Neuro-imaging would have been delayed or never performed in three to seven percent of patients with brain tumors. ‘We support careful and sensible use of neuro-imaging in which physicians exercise excellent clinical judgment to reduce waste in the medical system.

Alcoholic Drinks should bear a warning tag

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Alcohol Misuse suggested that all alcoholic products should carry a label having 'harmful effects of drinking'.
It was also declared by the government that it is working on reducing the excessive alcohol consumption and to work against the sale of cheap alcohol.
"Health warnings are a familiar and prominent feature on all tobacco products”, says the recommendation document written by the All-Party Parliamentary Group. It also says that the label which contains all the details on food is a must on all food items and soft drinks.

Still the ultimate information still remains to be the volume strength and unit content of the alcohol. In order to make the consumers aware of the risk factors, every alcohol should contain the label that includes health warnings based on evidences. These warnings should explain the nutritional, alcohol content and calorific value of the product.

They have also recommend a campaign on 'national public awareness on alcohol-related matters and issues. It would focus mainly on social workers, health care professionals and midwives to make alcohol treatment available to 15% of problem drinkers compared with 6% currently.
A random government spokeswoman said: “We are taking immediate steps to reduce excessive alcohol consumption and to inform people about the ill-effects which would take a toll on your health”.
