Do you know more than 4000 chemicals have been identified in tobacco smoke.Out of these 250 are carcinogenic.

Though I am married for 18 years and wife is also staying at home. Due to mental mismatch our sexual relationship is very bad since last 10 yrs, as she is not at all interested in sex from beginning and always dream for her menopause. Now sometimes I feel irritated for this. Now I wanna know what should be the physical impact on my health due to this zero sexual activity?

Hi lybrate-user, There are no major impacts on your health. You may feel anxious or develop cold/flu Less sex may reduce your exposure to germs. Unfortunately, you’ll also skip the immune-boosting benefits of a weekly roll in the hay. Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction as men who do it once a week or more, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine, though it may or may not happen. Apart for all this, there can be insecurities in relation. There is more of psychological rather than physical impact. Consult a psychologist for therapy and counseling. All the best.

Can loss of teeth affect memory ?

Can loss of teeth affect memory ?

A recent study has found that the walking speed and memory of adults without any teeth decline more rapidly than those who still have some or all of their own teeth.

The study, out of university college of London, studied over 3, 100 British adults over the age of 60 from the English longitudinal study of ageing (elsa), and compared memory and walking speed within the demographic. Published in the journal of the American geriatrics society, the research found that study participants with none of their own teeth performed approximately 10% worse in both walking speed and memory tests than participants that had some natural teeth.

The associations between poorer memory and physical function were more obvious in adults 60-74 years of age than in those over 75.

'tooth loss could be used as an early marker of mental and physical decline in older age, particularly among 60-74 year-olds,' said lead author Dr. Georgios tsakos of the UCL department of epidemiology and public health in a recent college news release. 'regardless of what is behind the link between tooth loss and a decline in function, recognizing excessive tooth loss presents an opportunity for early identification of adults at higher risk of faster mental and physical decline later in their life. There are many factors likely to influence this decline, such as lifestyle and psychosocial factors, which are amenable to change.'

Prior to making conclusions about the associations between tooth loss and memory and physical function decline, researchers adjusted the results for potentially influential factors, such as sociodemographic characteristics, preexisting health problems, socioeconomic status, and education. Despite the adjustments for these factors, people without their own teeth still walked slower than those who still had their teeth.

Dear lybrate-user, 1) first accept reality of life. 2) accept truth. 3) birth & death truth of life; accept it. 4) keep yourself engaged in day to day responsibilities, work, out door playing. 5) talk to the people, relatives, friends, colleagues. 6) follow healthy lifestyle & healthy food. 7) physical exercise. 8) practice meditation & yoga consult for proper future management.

I am always in stress. Sometimes very strange and dangerous thoughts comes in my mind. Like come infrount of car or something which have no sense. The thing which has not happened I got afraid of that that if it has been happened than what have happened. I am very upset from this problem.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate-user, our mind is like a monkey and many thoughts will come which make sense and some don't make sense at all. It is important to train the mind to think rationally, optimistically and healthy so that we can be more productive and peaceful in our life. For this purpose, I suggest that you remember the reality that you didn't come in front of any car and you are safe. Even if you do come in front of the car, you have enough mind to protect yourself by running away or telling the driver to slow down. Which means that you are in control and not helpless. 2. Thus reminding this yourself when ever you think irrationally, will help control the anxiety and fear and replace with positive, confidence and optimistic thoughts and feelings.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You think you are in love with both of them. You have the liberty to marry both of them. But you are interested in only one. You are unable to decide which one. Better option is to ask those girls. Let them decide whom you should get married to. Take care.

After the tongue tie is diagnosed it is a simple surgical procedure if we do with dental lasers. Later you would require the help of a speech therapist who will help in pronunciation. Kindly consult.

People call me immature for the way I speak. But the truth is whenever I open my mouth fear walks along. It happens all the time. My situation is turning more worse than before.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

Dear friend, why is it that one expects things to go in a desired way all the time? how can it be possible? this demand for things to go in a certain way is the root cause of worry/stress. If you look back at your life events, everything happens in a ordained way. Unburden yourself, leave the results to destiny!

Hi,am 45 year male,married have a 18 year son.From childhood used to write only in capital letters.Difficult to write in small caps & running letters.But from past years becoming difficult to write certain numbers like 3,6,8,9,0 and letters like B,S and few more.It takes more time to start & write above mentioned numbers & letters.Becomes more difficult to write if someone is watching me while writing, can't write correctly. Please suggest. Thanks Samir mehta

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some people who have become habituated to write in capital letters. You have been doing so for many years and it has become entrenched in your writing style. To change it now will be very, very difficult unless you are willing to go to calligraphy classes and work at it for a long time. Anyway, why would you want to change your style now, when you have managed for so many years?! The writing itself may not be the problem as much as it seems more psychological. Just to rule out any neurological problem you may get an examination from a neurologist. Your mind could be playing all kinds of tricks with you and making you very conscious of being inadequate and different from others. As you have mentioned that it becomes more difficult, if someone else is watching you. If your mind decides that something is going to be difficult, then it will make that difficulty become real. Are you under any kind of stress, especially to do with fear? You may be very suggestible under fear. This obsession can be quite a handicap, but of your own making. Talk to a psychologist or counselor to identify any underlying causes to your problem and have that sorted out. You will find that the difficulty with those numbers will also disappear.
