How to Deal with Hair Loss




If you are experiencing excessive hair loss there may be an underlying reason, it can be poor diet, illness, excessive dieting, tension, work pressure, too much exposure to sun, frequent coloring of hair, or bad reaction from hair treatment chemicals

Here are some tips on how to deal with hair-fall:

- Eat protein rich food like fish, eggs, milk, and meat.
- Eat a balance diet with more green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits.
- Eat nuts that have high vitamin E content like walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts daily.
- Apply vitamin E to your scalp. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps repair and build tissue. It helps reduce inflammation and repair damage to the follicles, and healthy follicles encourage hair growth.
- Eat plenty of fruits with antioxidants like strawberries, prunes, plums, oranges, blue berries, black berries, currants, and grapes. They help in lessening the negative effects of sun-rays on hair.
- Fruits rich in vitamin C like oranges, lemon and guava are good for health of hair.
- Avoid eating food that have high content of refined and processed carbohydrates like white bread and white rice.
- Food that contains whole wheat flour, pulses, curd and vegetables is good for over all health including hair.
- Drink plenty of water daily, at least 10-12 glasses.  
- Engage in physical activity everyday to relieve stress and improve blood circulation.
- Take iron supplements, since many women and men have iron deficiency (anemia). The symptoms of iron deficiency include fatigue, shortness of breath, frequent infections, pica (craving non-food items such as chalk or ice), brittle nails and hair loss.
- Use some oil like almond, castor, olive or coconut oil once a week to massage the scalp thoroughly.
- Keep your hair clean by washing it often (twice a week) with mild shampoo.
- Use Henna as a hair conditioner but not too frequently since it can weaken the hair strand.
- Don’t wash hair with too hot water.
- Restore moisture through hot oil treatments

The Dangers of Placenta Pills - CDC

Health officials issued a warning about possible dangers of taking encapsulated pills made from their placenta, after an Oregon infant's infection was tied to the practice. The baby was born healthy and without complication in September, but then its health began to deteriorate rapidly.

The practice of ingesting the placenta after giving birth is believed by some to help with postpartum depression, breast milk production and increase energy levels. It's trendy now since a lot of celebrity moms and bloggers are doing and promoting it.

In a CDC report published last Thursday, a group of doctors and health officials say the capsules appear to have caused an infant's illness in Portland, Oregon, last fall. The authors said moms should avoid taking them, noting that the making of placenta capsules is not regulated and there's no guarantee they are free of harmful germs.

Last fall, the Oregon baby fell ill twice with a strep infection. Doctors of the infant transferred the baby to the neonatal intensive care unit and began a series of tests. Those tests revealed a deadly blood infection known as late-onset group B Streptococcus agalactiae (GBS) bacteremia, which doctors treated with an 11-day course of antibiotics. Investigators believe the mom passed an infection to her child during birth. Later, the mom started taking placenta capsules. The child got sick again weeks later, and health officials think the pills played a role. Tests found the bacteria in the placenta pills.

The mother had sent her placenta to a company that offers to clean, slice and dehydrate it, then grind it and put it into gelatin capsules, according to the report. It's possible the company which was not identified failed to heat the placenta enough to kill germs, the authors said.

The placenta grows in the uterus during pregnancy and provides oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. Most mammal mothers eat placentas after giving birth — camels and humans traditionally were the exceptions. Ground placenta was a treatment in ancient Chinese medicine, though it wasn't standard practice for new mothers.

2 Billion People are Overweight, USA is on top




fat people, fat, obese, obesity


- 2.2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese.
- Egypt is on the top country with the highest percentage of obese adults while U.S. has the highest percentage of children.
- A rising number of deaths is resulting from diseases attributable to obesity.

According to a new study published Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine, about 30% (2.2 billion people) of the world's population is affected by weight problems, with 10% listed as obese. People were classified as overweight if their body mass index was in the 25 to 29 range, while obesity is defined as anyone with a BMI of 30 or more. 600 million adults and 150 million children have body mass index numbers above 30, which is a metric used to determine obesity.

The results show "a growing and disturbing global public health crisis," according to the study.

The United States had the highest percentage of obese children and young adults at nearly 13%, while Egypt had the highest number of adults at 35%. Bangladesh had the lowest rates of obese children, and Vietnam the lowest number in adults which are about 1% in both country.

The U.S., with 79.4 million, had the most obese adults, followed by China. The research found obesity has tripled in youth and young adults in countries such as China, Brazil and Indonesia.

Single Mosquito Bite Is Enough To Transmit Multiple Viruses - Study





Mosquito, Mosquito disease, chikungunya, dengue, Zika virus, DEET


Mosquitoes are annoying and their bite will give you an itchy pink or reddish skin bumps. They can also cause serious public health issue like the mosquito-borne Zika outbreak that spread all over the world last year. Not only that according to a recent study published in the Nature Communications journal reports that mosquitoes might be even more adept at spreading disease than previously thought. The research was aiming to find out if the infamous Aedes aegypti mosquito may be able to spread multiple diseases at once. Aedes aegypti mosquito, also called the cockroach of mosquitoes, is known to be among the primary way diseases like chikungunya, dengue and Zika virus spread.

Researchers from Colorado State University exposed hundreds of mosquitoes to either chikungunya, Zika or dengue and different combinations of the three. They also exposed 48 mosquitoes to the three viruses namely chikungunya, Zika and dengue so that they can analyze if one or all three of the diseases could appear in the saliva, which could then potentially infect a person.

The researchers examined the saliva, gut and legs of the insects for signs of viral infection. They found that 92% of the mosquitoes tested positive for all three viruses. Of the 48 just one remained uninfected.  

They found that 6 saliva samples from the mosquito tested positive for all three viruses 14 days after the insects were exposed. Another two saliva samples tested positive 21 days after exposure.

Even if not all the insects had the virus in the saliva, the researchers said that the virus' presence in the saliva happens only after the infection has traveled through the body. As a result, the other mosquitoes that tested positive may still have been able to transmit the disease in the future even if the virus was not found in the saliva.

 "Based on what I know as a virologist, epidemiologist and entomologist, I thought that the viruses would either compete or enhance each other in some way," Greg Ebel, director of the Arthropod-borne and Infectious Diseases Laboratory and co-author of the study, said in a statement today. "On the one hand, all of these viruses have mechanisms to suppress mosquito immunity, which could lead to synergy. On the other hand, they all likely require similar resources within infected cells, which could lead to competition."

But Ebel said, "we didn't see much evidence of either one of these things in mosquitoes that were infected in the lab by multiple viruses."

According to CDC the only way to protect yourself and your children from mosquito-born illness is to prevent the bite by using insect repellent. The CDC recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents that include at least 20% DEET. Though products with higher DEET concentration does provide longer protection, this peaks around 50% DEET.

Common Painkillers May Cause "Heart attack risk"

http://amzn.to/2pyi6df


According to the new study, there may be a link between taking high doses of common anti-inflammatory painkillers like ibuprofen and heart attacks. Over-the-counter common painkillers known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen are sold under brand names that includes Motrin or Advil, these are used to treat minor pains and aches, it also reduce fever.

People who take these medicine have a higher risk of heart attack or stroke, according to National Institutes of Health. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682159.html
The likelihood of experiencing a heart attack was calculated to increase by an average of 20% to 50%, compared with someone not taking the drugs, regardless of the dosage and amount of time  they are taken.

The findings are observational and based on an association, however, with the drugs not proved to be a a direct cause of heart attack.

This group of drugs includes ibuprofen, diclofenac, celecoxib and naproxen, which are available over the counter or by prescription for higher doses, to relieve pain or fever resulting from a range of causes that may include flu, headaches, back pain and menstrual cramps. Their range of uses also means they are often taken as needed, for short periods of time.

The level of risk increased as early as one week into the use of any drug in this category and at any dose, and the risk associated with taking higher doses was greatest within the first month. The overall findings suggest that people who take any dosage of these drugs for one week, one month or longer was linked to an increased risk of a heart attack. The risk appeared to decline when these painkillers were no longer taken, with a slight decline one to 30 days after use and a greater decline, falling below 11%, between 30 days and one year after use.

"We found that all common NSAIDs shared a heightened risk of heart attack," said Dr. Michèle Bally, an epidemiologist at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center, who led the research. "There is a perception that naproxen has the lowest cardiovascular risk (among the NSAIDs), but that's not true."

Cardiovascular diseases are the No. 1 cause of death globally, according to the World Health Organization, with 80% of all deaths in this category due to heart attacks and strokes. Each year, it's estimated that 735,000 people in the United States have a heart attack. In the United Kingdom, more than 200,000 hospital visits each year are due to a heart attack.

Diet Soday May Cause Stroke and Dementia

According to a new study consuming diet sodas may result to higher risk of stroke and dementia. Drinks with artificial sweeteners like diet sodas are linked to higher risk of stroke and dementia according to the study, which published in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke on Thursday.

However, the researchers failed to determine an actual cause-and-effect relationship between consuming artificially sweetened drinks and an increased risk for stroke and dementia. Therefore, some experts caution that the findings should be interpreted carefully.

No connection was found between those health risks and other sugary beverages, such as sugar-sweetened sodas, fruit juice and fruit drinks.

"We have little data on the health effects of diet drinks and this is problematic because diet drinks are popular amongst the general population," said Matthew Pase, a senior research fellow in the department of neurology at Boston University School of Medicine and lead author of the new study.
"More research is needed to study the health effects of diet drinks so that consumers can make informed choices concerning their health," he said.

The new study involved data on 2,888 adults older than 45 and 1,484 adults older than 60 from the town of Framingham, Massachusetts. The data came from the Framingham Heart Study, a project of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and Boston University.

The American Beverage Association was quick to defend diet drinks.

“Low-calorie sweeteners have been proven safe by worldwide government safety authorities as well as hundreds of scientific studies and there is nothing in this research that counters this well-established fact,” it said in a statement. It added:

    While we respect the mission of these organizations to help prevent conditions like stroke and dementia, the authors of this study acknowledge that their conclusions do not — and cannot — prove cause and effect.

Pineapples can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a disease that affects the eyes as people age, due in part to its high amount of vitamin C and the antioxidants it contains. Pineapple contains dietary fiber, which is essential in keeping your intestines healthy. It also contains enzyme called bromelain which helps you improve your digestion and fight against inflammatory processes of the organism. The enzyme also fasten your metabolism that leads to weight loss. A 100-gram serving of pineapple is just 40 calories.
