Childhood obesity could lead to joint problems later in life

Image
 As these children grow older, their extra weight causes mobility issues.  Overweight children are more likely to develop bone and joint pain and joint dysfunction in later life, according to a study published in the International Journal of Obesity. Dr. Richard Branson, chief medical officer at the American College of Sports Medicine, says childhood obesity's cumulative effect on adult health needs more study.  Children's health and wellbeing are impacted by a number of immediate conditions that are brought on by obesity.  A report from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons details the effects of childhood obesity (AAOS),   High blood pressure Type 2 diabetes Asthma and other breathing problems Young children's bones, joints, and muscles have an impact on their health and development when they carry too much weight. The article goes on to discuss additional conditions brought on by overstressing growing muscles and bones. Long bones in the body have areas

Obesity in childhood raises the possibility of dementia

Image
A recent study found that obese kids have a higher chance of getting dementia in later life. Obesity in childhood raises the possibility of middle-aged brain dysfunction, which may ultimately result in dementia. Source: https://bonejoint.net/ A general term for memory, thinking, or decision-making impairment that interferes with daily activities, dementia is not a specific disease. The findings were based on a study that involved more than 1,200 people and was conducted over a 30-year period. The research was started when the participants were school students. Professor Michelle Kelly Saya of Monash University in Melbourne, who is the study’s lead author, said it was crucial to create plans to increase childhood fitness and decrease obesity because doing so enhances mental function in middle age. The important thing, he continued, is that research is indicating the necessity of taking preventative measures against early degenerative brain function in childhood as soon as possible so th

Daily consumption of table salt can result in early death

Image
The University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine’s research has demonstrated a connection between salty foods and early death. Table salt is bad for health. Photo by mali maeder: pexels.com The warning came in a new medical study. According to the study, adding salt to food can shorten a man’s life expectancy by two years and a woman’s average age by one and a half years. The research team found evidence to support the idea that people shouldn’t salt their food excessively. The association between salting food and early death has never been studied before, the researchers said.. They added that a moderate reduction in salt intake could also be beneficial for health. The study examined information from over 500,000 individuals whose eating patterns had been monitored for an average of nine years. By the way, it is difficult to know the total amount of salt because many processed foods contain a lot of salt. But the study looked at the habit of sprinkling salt on foods. Accor

Powerful American bombers over Europe. B-52 Stratofortress can fly with up to 31.5 tons of weapons

Image
Two B-52 Stratofortress bombers flew over the south-east region of Europe on August 22. Another blatant demonstration of NATO’s commitment to border defence comes from US bombers flying over Europe. However, they went over Croatia, North Macedonia, Albania, and the Montenegrin Adriatic coast rather than the nations bordering Belarus, Russia, or Ukraine. Although they are now stationed at a British facility, these two powerful American bombers are actually part of the 23rd Bomber Squadron at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. As they flew rather low, you could see them in the sky and experience the “spirit of NATO” for yourself. They started their flying voyage from their current home base, RAF Fairford in the UK. The 1952-built Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bomber was manufactured between 1952 and 1962 and is currently still in use by the US Air Force as a strategic bomber. These old eight-engine military aircraft have been in continuous service ever since they were ordered by 102 B-52

Health benefits of drinking water in the morning

Image
You may have heard that drinking water in the morning on an empty stomach is good for your health.  Photo by Pixabay: Pexels In order to meet its needs, the body cannot produce enough water. Healthy meals and beverages are necessary to stay hydrated. Depending on the person’s age, gender, and level of hydration, the body has about 60% water. Proper hydration regulates body temperature, transports nutrients, lubricates joints, and excretes through urine and sweat. Every day, the body loses water through breathing, sweating, and urination. Exercise, hot temperatures, and some medications can hasten fluid loss. You must regularly consume water, whatever it needs to be. While you sleep, your body uses and loses fluids, but you are unable to drink. Morning water can bring health benefits. Morning hydration is beneficial but not required. This habit is healthy, but it’s not crucial for hydration and wellness. Water is essential. It’s best to drink water when you get up and before eating, alt

How diabetics can live longer?

Image
A new study has found that diabetics who eat less processed foods at night can live longer. Most experts emphasize that  diabetics can improve their health if certain foods are eaten at different times of the day. This new study has been published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Researchers said that they observed that eating potatoes in the morning, cereals in the afternoon, vegetables in the evening, milk and less processed food at night was associated with a longer life expectancy in people with diabetes. They added that dietary routine is very important for diabetics, meaning that only a patient who eats on time stays healthy. The researchers analyzed data from 4,642 people with diabetes from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey to determine their risk of dying from heart disease. They found that people with diabetes who ate potatoes or starchy vegetables in the morning, cereals in the afternoon and vegetables and foods like broccoli and mil

Cranberries are a beautiful gift of nature to the heart.

Image
Cranberry is considered a very powerful and healthy fruit especially in the West. Now, scientists at King’s College London have reported that eating 100 grams of cranberries a day is extremely beneficial for the heart as it improves FMD (Flu Mediated Dilation) in the heart. The widening of the arteries when the blood flow increases is called FMD process. Scientists have also reported that within two hours of eating cranberries, its wonderful positive effects on the heart become noticeable. That is, within 120 minutes of eating a cranberry, the condition of FMD in the body improves. It should be noted that the FMD scale is also used to diagnose heart disease. According to a report published in the journal Food and Function, eating cranberries strengthens the heart and it mainly widens and improves the arteries of the heart. It improves the overall function of the heart. According to experts, cranberries contain a variety of flavonoids and polyphenols that have an overall magical effect.

The habit of drinking coffee is good for heart health

Image
The habit of drinking coffee is beneficial for improving heart health. This was revealed in a medical study conducted in Australia. Research from the University of Melbourne and Monash University found that drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day reduced the risk of premature death for any cause, including heart disease, heart failure or coronary heart disease, by 15%. These are basically the results of 3 research reports for which the researchers used the data of UK Biobank. The data surveyed the health of more than 500,000 people for at least 10 years. The amount of coffee they drank was also known when they joined the study. New research now examines the relationship between coffee drinking and the risk of increasing or decreasing the risk of various heart diseases. The first study focused on more than 382,000 people who did not have heart disease and whose average age was 57 years. The results showed that people who are accustomed to drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day have a lower r

High sugar consumption deprives people of vitamins and minerals.

Image
This was revealed in a medical study that showed people who consume large amounts of sugar for long periods of time can develop autoimmune diseases. This was revealed in a medical study conducted in Germany. Autoimmune diseases are those in which the immune system attacks the body’s own healthy cells, which can lead to various complications such as type 1 diabetes and chronic inflammation. Research from the Julius Maximilians University  of Wurzburg(JMU)  sheds light on the mechanism that causes autoimmune diseases. Research has shown that immune cells need large amounts of sugar in order to function properly. The research focused on a group of immune system cells that were not well known. It was a type 17 group of tea helper cells that played a key role in the inflammatory process. According to researchers, the new discovery could help shape autoimmune therapy. The results of the study were published in the medical journal “Cell Metabolism”. Earlier , in March 2020, research from the

How to get rid of plaque and tartar?

Image
Are you looking for a way to get rid of plaque and tartar? Photo by Karolina Grabowska:  Pexels.com Plaque or dirt accumulation on the surface of teeth and gums can be easily avoided at home. If dental hygiene is neglected, this dirt will turn yellow. It appears as a brown substance known as tartar. When people eat carbohydrates, bacteria in their mouth break them down into acids, which combine with food particles and saliva to form plaque. Plaque and tartar can be avoided by brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis, but tartar is difficult to remove with teeth and often necessitates a trip to the dentist. Bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease are all signs of poor oral hygiene. Gum disease has also been linked to serious diseases like pneumonia, dementia, and heart disease, according to recent research reports. Try a few simple home remedies to get rid of plaque and prevent tartar from forming on your teeth. Practice good dental hygiene The best way to clear plaque and t

Being healthy includes having a healthy mouth.

Image
  Healthy oral tissues, asymptomatic teeth, and a working masticatory system are all indicators of a mouth that is in good health. A healthy mouth affects eating, speaking, and appearance in addition to having social significance.  A healthy mouth can exist even with one or more teeth missing or with some degree of tooth crowding. A healthy mouth does not necessarily mean having a perfect set of teeth. Knowledge promotes wellness. Knowing the fundamentals of the structure of the mouth, the growth and function of the teeth, and oral diseases will help you better understand the factors that affect oral health. Understanding the basics of oral health promotes maintaining healthy habits and, if necessary, changing habits to support health. Oral health care professionals (see Oral health care professionals) and other health care professionals can provide information during checkups and treatment visits. Oral health is taught in schools. You can also find reliable information online. Many or

WHY does warm milk act as a sleeping pill?

Image
  Pexel.com Drinking warm milk before bed may promote sleep, according to scientific research.  In a study of people over 60, those who drank fermented milk for three weeks woke up less at night. Those who consumed warm milk and honey for three days reported sleeping better than those who did not.  If you have trouble falling asleep, drinking milk may be helpful. In a study of individuals aged 65 and older, those who exercised more and drank more milk reported falling asleep more easily than those who did not.   Why Does Warm Milk Make You Sleepy?  Tryptophan may be responsible for the sleep-inducing properties of milk. There is evidence that tryptophan-rich foods improve sleep and mood in the elderly.  Tryptophan is essential for the synthesis of serotonin and melatonin. The neurotransmitter serotonin influences mood, cognitive reasoning, and memory. Melatonin is a hormone that your body secretes in response to darkness to help you feel sleepy at night.  Milk from cows that are

Soft drinks and artificial sweeteners can damage your liver

Image
The most complex machine in the human body is the liver, which performs 50,000 chemical reactions. Experts have now found at the molecular level that soft drinks, sodas, and artificial sweeteners affect the liver and especially its detoxification function. Photo by Michael Morse on Pexels.com These drinks affect the liver’s ability to flush out toxic compounds. In this regard, a study was conducted at the Medical College of Wisconsin in which they discovered the whole molecular and chemical process by which soft drinks and soft sweetened beverages affect the liver and its ability to expel toxic compounds. In this regard, an important protein is affected which removes waste products from the body under metabolism. Lara Denner, a doctoral student at the medical college, says cumin drinks and low-sugar packaged yogurt are equally harmful. Also, chemicals in makeup and other inedible items can affect the liver. This protein is called P-glycoprotein (PGP). When it is exposed to the two main

30 tips for better sleep as you age

Why do we sleep less well as we age? For all those who have sleep problems and wish to improve the situation, there are many books and articles on the subject. However, few are dedicated to a group that is often exposed to insomnia : the elderly. Why do we sleep less well as we age? Sleep patterns change dramatically with age. Older people have difficulty falling asleep, wake up more often and spend less time in deep sleep. In addition, at an advanced age, we are more susceptible to certain diseases, which play into fatigue . Medication use , obesity , and lack of exercise —all now more common among older people—can also affect the quality of nights. Sleep better in old age Using a sleeping pill , to fall asleep more easily or stay asleep longer, seems like a logical solution. However, for people over 65, this is strongly discouraged. International guidelines even completely ban sleeping pills beyond this age. So how can you sleep better? 30 tips for better sleep as you age Ensure some

The Truth About Vitamin D

Image
Many people believe that taking vitamin D, including Covid-19, will prevent them from a variety of ailments. Photo by Anna Shvets on Pexels.com Vitamin D is one of the most popular dietary supplements. It is most commonly used with calcium. Together, they can help to strengthen bone structure and so protect against osteoporosis. Vitamin D, on the other hand, is involved in the release of hormones and neurotransmitters, and hence in a range of metabolic processes, blood pressure management, nerve and muscle function, and so on. Low vitamin D levels are linked to an increased risk of disease. This leads to the conclusion that low vitamin D levels may raise the risk of a variety of diseases. Indeed, numerous large observational studies have found a link, for example, between various cardiovascular illnesses, various types of cancer, diabetes, and depression. The recent discovery that patients with low vitamin D levels also had more severe Covid-19 symptoms generated quite a stir. So, in p

Source: parkview.com Causes and symptoms Constipation is one of the most frequent disorders among the population. It is difficult in eliminating stools completely or regularly. A person suffering from constipation uses excessive strain during bowel movements due to impaired bowel motility or abnormalities regarding the volume or consistency of fecal material. In general, we speak of constipation when the number of weekly evacuations is less than three. Constipation is often associated with a number of other symptoms including headaches, nervousness, and gas buildup in the intestine, which in turn causes bloating, and tension. Constipation can be acute or chronic. In the first case, you suffer from constipation in a sporadic and transient way, perhaps following the intake of certain drugs or reduced physical activity, for example after a surgical operation that forces you to rest. In chronic constipation, on the other hand, the disorder lasts for more than three months and, in this cas

In light of the findings of a recent study conducted in Chicago, health experts have issued a warning to people sleeping in light. Photo by Andrea Piacquadio: Pexels.com Researchers at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago looked at the connection between light exposure while sleeping and health. According to recent research, sleeping near light can increase the risk of becoming obese, developing diabetes, and developing high blood pressure. The study’s author, Dr. Manji Kim, said, “We live in the midst of an abundance of artificial light that is readily available 24 hours a day.” I’m referring to all forms of lighting caused by the pollution of regular light from smartphones, TVs, and large cities, he said. “During the study, young and healthy adults who were tested in the laboratory overnight were found to have increased heart rate and blood glucose,” he explained. Even though the study was only done on adults, a previous investigation revealed that not sl

Calcium prevents kidney stones - New Research

Image
Calcium is a common component of kidney stones. Therefore, consuming low-calcium foods was long advised to those affected. A diet like that is bad for the bones. Recently, it has also been demonstrated that a low-calcium diet actually encourages the development of (new) kidney stones. For their study, Api Chewcharat and his team at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester examined detailed dietary data from 411 patients who had kidney stones. Risky: little water, little calcium The two main risk factors for stone formation were low calcium intake and insufficient water consumption. The participants' risk of developing a kidney stone was lowest when they consumed 1200 mg of calcium daily and about 3400 ml of liquid from food and drink. Increasing potassium intake and drinking a lot of coffee also lower the risk of developing stones. After around four years, 73 of the participants had gotten kidney stones again . Here, the researchers only found a risk connection with a low calcium intake. Sinis

Parents should carefully upload their childrens photos

On vacation, parents frequently capture the most stunning images of their kids, which they are more than happy to post on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. When posting their childrens photos online, parents should be aware of potential risks, such as the misuse of the images by uninvited parties, according to researchers and investigators. The joint initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, the two public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, and the AOK health insurance fund warned that parents frequently fail to consider the possibility that the pictures could easily end up in the wrong hands. According to media trainer Kristin Langer, once the recordings are posted online, they can spread quickly. Therefore, the expert advises against sharing images and videos in which the child is clearly visible. In general, only secure online spaces that are inaccessible to strangers should be used to publish children’s photos. Sharing

Risk of eating half-fried egg

Eggs are typically regarded as the best breakfast food, but if you are accustomed to eating half-fried eggs, you should be aware of the risk. Eggs are a complete food and the first meal of the day for a substantial portion of the global population. It is prepared in a variety of ways, although the majority of people like fried eggs with raw yolk. Salmonella, according to experts, is the greatest danger posed by raw egg yolk, notwithstanding its flavor. Salmonella is a bacterium found in polluted water and food that can cause diarrhoea, fever, chills, and in some cases more serious symptoms. Salmonella is more prevalent in uncooked or raw foods than in prepared dishes. Salmonella is highly likely to contaminate all foods derived from animals, including eggs, poultry, meat, and fish. According to nutritionists, none of these foods are safe to consume when they are raw or undercooked. When frying an egg, it should be cooked for at least two to three minutes, the white should not move when

Are those who stay up late unhappy with life?

Image
If you’re one of those people who finds it hard to stay up late and get up in the morning, this is bad news for you. And the fact is that those who stay up late are more unhappy than those who wake up in the morning. The claim was made in a study by the University of Warsaw in Poland . But it’s not just for physical reasons like walking more during the day or getting better sleep. In fact, people who wake up in the morning have a better mood because they get more support from friends and family. In contrast, people who stay up late do not adapt to a variety of activities, such as work or school schedules, and may feel less socially supportive. In fact, people they know think they are lazy or grumpy, and as a result, others do not like to associate with them. The study involved 1,067 people between the ages of 18 and 55, who were asked to fill out a series of questionnaires to determine their waking hours, as well as how satisfied they are with life.

Why do some individuals suffer from fear of the dark?

Many adults share the fear of the dark held by the majority of children. Let’s call it nyctophobia, or fear of the dark or something, because it affects a large number of people. According to the Cleveland Clinic in the United States, fear of the dark is most prevalent in children aged 6 to 12 years old. The number of adults who fear the dark and experience anxiety in the dark is not insignificant. So, is adult apprehension of the darkness normal? In the United States, nearly fifty percent of adults admitted to being afraid of the dark in a 2020 survey. Normally, this fear is not a cause for concern, but when it interferes with daily life, it should be examined because it may be a sign of nyctophobia, a type of fear of night or darkness. People with nyctophobia are terrified of the dark and may experience symptoms including difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat, chest tightness or discomfort, a shivering or tingling sensation, dizziness, and cold sweats. It is also possible to develop

Liver - our internal ally

Image
 It performs titanic work every day - it takes care of the supply of nutrients and cleanses the whole body of toxins. The liver is the largest gland in the human body. It is very sensitive and prone to damage. And how to care for the liver?   What is the liver and what are its functions?   The liver is a special gland because it not only functions continuously but also possesses regenerative properties that no other human body organ can claim. It is composed of liver cells, or hepatocytes, which unite to form the bile ducts' vessels. They make up 60–70% of the liver's total cell population.   Proteins, fats, and carbohydrates (sugars) are all metabolised by the liver . There, proteins and carbohydrates are broken down into fats and glucose is made and stored. Additionally, the liver breaks down fats and produces phospholipids, lipoproteins, and cholesterol. The majority of the proteins that make up plasma proteins are also produced by this gland, along with amino acids. I
