High temperatures and excessive humidity can cause dry eyes

Image
Dry eye occurs when your eyes don’t produce enough tears or when they don’t perform properly. This can create eye strain and visual issues. Climate change affects human health directly and indirectly, both short- and long-term. This article shows how this affects dry eyes syndrome. Source : www.mayoclinic.org High temperatures and eye health Why does the risk of dry eye increase? High temperatures can cause dry eye in young people and the elderly. Lack of water, drought in the countryside and riverbeds are evidence of this. The excessive increase in humidity (during torrential rain or thunderstorms) also alters the tear film (contributing anxiety and stress). Pollutants and chemicals from factories, waste water, and sewage also harm our eyes. When black and industrial waste aren’t disposed of properly, they overflow, spilling toxins into lakes and the sea. Some of these compounds linger in the air for a long time, creating Urban Eye Allergy Syndrome (increasingly associated with dry ey

The total amount of folate in the blood of 3418 women and men was 4.4 nanograms per milliliter which was a very small amount. People with the lowest folate levels had a 3.5 percent hi

Most heart disease treatments and tests are unnecessary, experts say

Image
The American Heart Association has released a report stating that most tests and treatments for heart disease are unnecessary. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the problem of low-value medical care is not new but old. Most heart patients undergo treatment or tests that do not suit their medical condition. The term low-value medical care is used to refer to physicians who are not involved in the fight against the disease. According to statistics, 30% of Americans spend their annual expenses on non-essential medical facilities, which is estimated to be around 1 101 billion. In addition, people who have had angioplasty or surgery to remove a blockage in an artery may have to undergo some exercise tests, but sometimes they include people who do not have a heart condition. Dr. Wayne Kenney, a senior AHA official, said that when non-professional practices in the medical field become commonplace, it becomes almost impossible to eliminate them.

Children born with normal delivery are healthier

Image
According to a new study conducted in Scotland and the Netherlands, the response of our immune system to a vaccine also depends on how we were born, i.e. through normal delivery or operation (C-section).   The study found that children born in normal delivery or naturally born have twice the amount of antibodies produced after vaccination compared to children born through surgery (C-section). Experts say that the reason for this difference is the good immunity-producing bacteria that accumulate in our body at birth. Although children born after the operation also have immunity or natural protection, they may have to be given more probiotic or additional doses of the vaccine than children born with normal delivery. The moment of our birth is a time when we move out of the germs of the mother's uterus to a world where there are a lot of microscopic germs everywhere. The microbes (bacteria, fungi, viruses, and ikea) in this microscopic life make our body their

What effect does have on your body by living in an intensely cold room?

  If we talk about the extreme cold in front of me, I think of the people of the North Pole whose beards have snow or the climbers who reach the heights of Mount Everest.     In the meantime, I also get the thought of his fingers being black from frostbite and the thought of him being affected by hypothermia.     So when I was invited to experience a cold room, I was very surprised because the temperature here was only 10 degrees Celsius. Yes, 10 degrees Centigrade. For me, it's a very balanced temperature, not blood-clotting at all. The Arctic is not even close to cold. Surely we need a much cooler temperature to put our bodies in some kind of trouble? I was wrong.     Professor Damien Bailey from the University of South Wales told me, "It sounds balanced, but it's a physical challenge. ‘   They invited me to their laboratory to explore the effects of cold houses on our bodies and why such balanced temperatures could be dangerous for our
