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.

Healthy Lifestyle May Help 4 out of 5 Men Prevent Heart Attacks

A new study has revealed that 80 percent of men could come out of heart attacks and other related heart ailments by following a healthy lifestyle choices. Coronary events in men such as healthy lifestyle that includes maintaining a healthy weight and consuming a healthy diet. Exercising, working out, quitting smoking and moderating alcohol intake can help prevent coronary intake in men.

While mortality from heart ailments and diseases has come down in recent years, with much of the reduction attributed to medical procedures and therapies, the researchers have said that prevention by adopting a healthy lifestyle will eradicate potential side effects of medicine intake and were found to be more cost effective for population wide reductions in coronary heart disease. The practitioners and researchers have come out with the fact that there is a reduction in the risk for heart disease.

The researchers found a noticeable reduction in the risk for heart attack for every individual lifestyle factor that participants had practiced. For example, consumption of a low-risk diet together with a small amount of alcohol in moderation led to about 35 percent less risk of generating heart attack compared to high-risk groups, those who practice none of the low-risk factors.

Teens with strong working memory better at avoiding early drug experimentation

During the time of adolescence, the experimentations with alcohol and drugs become common. It is very unfortunate that teenagers most often do not see or think about the actions today and it's ill-effects and consequences tomorrow. They also develop a sort of indestructibility and immunity towards the problems that everyone else faces due to this addiction.

Having alcohol and tobacco at a very young age would bear a very negative health effect on young people. Some teens would experiment and would stop having it after getting an idea of the future consequences it might bring. While others will develop a very strong dependency on it which might prove to be very harmful

A recent study has just stated that adolescence that had a strong working memory is better equipped to escape early drug experimentation without progressing into substance abuse issues. According to the study by University of Oregon, impulsive adolescents who lack focus are more likely to face substance-abuse issues. Researchers have also proved that not every form of early use of drugs is problematic and there are also some individuals who start this habit early and then go into a path of continued usage of drugs.

Teens are more likely to get engaged in impulsive drug-use behavior and they also put forth new approaches for beginning with early interventions since weaknesses in carrying out executive functioning most often underline self-control problems in children as young as 3 years old.

Use of smokeless tobacco higher in India: Global smokeless tobacco report

The use of smokeless tobacco is on rise and now it is highest in India. The data also indicates that the prevalence is seen to be higher in men than in women with 32.9% and 18.4% respectively. Although the absolute levels were different, the patterns in India were similar to those observed in Bangladesh.

Here are some key findings of the report:

In India, the prevalence was recorded to be the lowest in 15-24 age group and was found highest in those who were aged 65 years and above. By education prevalence was more than twice as high in adults with no formal education (33.5%) as it was in adults with an education of secondary school or above (14.8%).

Prevalence was 33.1% among retired and unemployed adults, 32.5% among employed adults, and just 6.3% in students. By region, prevalence was highest (38%) in the East and lowest (7%) in the North. By state in India, prevalence ranged from 49% in Bihar to only 5% in Goa.

In India, only 7.5% of adults chew betel quid with tobacco (18.1% of men, 5.0% of women). Other products used in India including (11.8%), gutka (8.4%). Men and adults from rural areas use these products at a higher rate than women and urban residents.

Bangladeshi men initiate use 2 years earlier than women, while in India both men and women start at about age 20. The quit ratio is slightly higher (5.5%) in Bangladesh than in India (4.8%).

Losing weight, quitting smoking may reduce risk of old age Dementia

A new study has showed that old age dementia can be controlled by losing weight, quitting smoking and also reduces the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Dementia is not just a term or single disease in itself, but it is rather a general term that would show some symptoms such as memory impairments, communication and thinking problems etc.

the researchers have also suggested that dementia can be included as a part national public health prevention and detection programs along with some other non communicable diseases. It is always better to treat this at the earliest than too late to make healthy lifestyle changes.

The World Alzheimer's Report 2014 commissioned by Alzheimer's disease International said that dementia's links to physical health could be effective at fending off dementia even in later life.

It is founded that Diabetes can hamper a person's risk of developing Dementia by about 50 percent. Obesity and lack of physical activity leads to high blood pressure, which is been associated with many cases of dementia.

Marc Wortmann, executive director of Alzheimer's Disease International, said that the risk factors for dementia "overlap" with those of other major non-communicable diseases. It would draw out similarities with that of many forms of non-communicable diseases.

George McNamara, head of policy at the UK's Alzheimer's Society, said many lifestyle factors play a key role in the development of dementia.

New treatment for muscle cramp found effective

A very new treatment being found by the US researches has been found very effective in lessening the intensity of muscle cramps by as much as thrice. The new treatment would prove to be beneficial for them who suffer from muscle cramps due to neuromuscular disorders from nighttime leg cramps that could hamper sleep.

"These leg cramps can cause distress, interrupted sleep, reduced quality of life and interference with activities of daily living," said study author Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel laureate and co-founder of Flex Pharma in Boston.

Currently, there are no approved treatments for nocturnal leg cramps, MacKinnon said. The new treatment is based on research that shows cramps are caused by excessive firing of neurons in the spinal cord that control muscle contractions.

The treatment is designed to stop the firing of the neurons by stimulating the transient receptor potential (TRP) on channels. For the study, the researchers used an electrical neurostimulator to induce muscle cramps in the feet of 37 healthy people. While half of the participants received the treatment other half received a placebo. When participants received the treatment, which was taken by mouth, their cramps were three times less intense than when they received the placebo. The treatment showed the effect within minutes and lasted up to six to eight hours.
