Nails protect the tip of the fingers and greatly help in the appreciation of fine touch and aids in picking up of small objects. Moreover they add to the beauty of the hands. People take great care to maintain the looks of nails. Nail cosmetics are used to enhance nails’ appearance & beauty and to disguise unsightly nail conditions.
What we do not realize is, there is always a health risk while using these products;
Nail polish : Also called nail lacquer, consists of enamel, top coats and base coats either separately or combined in one product. Nail polish contain 30% solids and 70% solvent ingredients.
The usual ingredients are
cellulose film formers
Solvents and diluents
Pearls or frosts are produced by bismuth oxychloride and titanium dioxide coated with mica and guanine. Nail polishes can produce allergic reactions which can develop in any part of the body. The commonest areas being eyelids, lower half of the face, neck and upper chest. Nail polish dermatitis can occur in user’s partner or other close contacts. The most common allergen is tosylamide formaldehyde resin.
Nail plate staining (yellow/orange) occurs on repeated applications and the dyes may penetrate deeply. Nails may become friable if the lacquer is left on the nails for many weeks.
Nail polish removers : Usually made up of various solvents such as acetone. They may cause excessive dryness of the nail plate.
Cuticle removers : 0.4% sodium or potassium hydroxide is used as lotions or gels as cuticle removers. 1-5% lactic acid cream is also used.
Nail hardeners : Nails are thickened with tissue fixatives such as formaldehyde but they are notorious to produce pain, bleeding under the nails, bluish discoloration of nails and are no longer preferred.
Preformed plastic nails : These are prosthetic nails which can be fixed to the nails with cyanoacrylate adhesives. It can be trimmed to fit the fingertip. If they are kept for 3-4 days it can cause nail damage and discoloration. Sometimes allergic reactions can also occur at distant places.
Other nail cosmetic products include nail cream, nail whitener, nail mending kits, silicone rubber nail prosthesis, buffing creams etc. Always consult a dermatologist in case of any allergies or nail changes to get the proper advice and treatment.

Now doctors are advising him to get kidney transplant as soon as possible. Please suggest me what to do next as I am very much disappointed from all the doctors. And advice a best food chart to avoid raising of creatinine again. Thank you.
Man had been a hunter-gatherer for thousands of year prior to discovering that settling down and engaging in agriculture did have its merits, especially by the way of an easier lifestyle! Many people today are going in for contemporary diets which are plant based. But what exactly does that mean? And are there benefits which make the effort worth one’s while?
A plant based diet has a pretty large variety of benefits. While it was a rather predominant belief in the years gone by that animal protein was essential for proper nutrition of a person, this is something that has long been debunked. As a matter of fact, plant based diets have been found to be worthy of providing the same level of protein to a person, but just without all the side effects that eating meat has. Who wanted those side effects, anyway? It is not like they are worth bearing with just for the taste of the meat!
The environment is saved a lot of strain as rearing meat for human consumption is very hard on it. It is quite a startling fact that meat oriented emissions are higher than what is emitted by planes, trains and trucks and the like. Taking into due account the fact that tens of thousands of people are up in the air at any given moment and millions are crisscrossing countries by road, can you imagine what sort of emissions those are, then? This thought was enough to cause the Beatle Paul McCartney to start a campaign to make Mondays in the UK meat free!
Meat is generally known to be more expensive than vegetarian or plant-based options. This is especially true when it comes to cities as the meat has to be kept refrigerated while it is transported until it is bought. So, for a person who is looking to save a reasonable amount of money, by going to a plant based diet, he or she would be doing this almost without the intention to do so!
Losing weight is not an easy task, to say the least. However, with a plant based diet, this task is made quite a bit easier! There are various types of fat and it must be said that not all of them are bad for the body. As a general rule, it is rare for meat to contain as high a level of good fats in relation to bad fats, as vegetarian food does. What this means is that the entire effort to lose weight just got a lot easier; all that is required is a rational choice when it comes to a person’s diet! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.
