Restaurant - Why Should You Abstain From Eating There?

Restaurant - Why Should You Abstain From Eating There?

Nowadays, people just don't feel like cooking at home. Ordering from out is the new trend today. It has become a regular part of your diet. But it is extremely damaging to your health. You may lick your fingers and savour of the moment after that lip-smacking bucket of fried chicken, or the burger you just polished off, but in the long run, a whole lot of health problems are going to follow suit.

  1. Restaurant food is extremely fattening and can raise your cholesterol levels sky-high. Obesity is now a major modern health problem, with it affecting children from young ages. In adults, it increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. To our brain, this food is often very rewarding, and we tend to overeat as a result.
     
  2. The meat in your burger is so laden with artificial chemicals, that it is hardly nutritive. It is essentially scrap meat that is fattened up and flavoured to suit your taste buds. It contains high amounts of ammonia, a chemical that is found in your bathroom cleaning liquid and that is hardly fit for human consumption.
     
  3. It is extremely addictive, where the more frequently you eat it, the more you crave it until you lose all self-control. If you eat restaurant food more than once a week, you have fallen prey to the most common trend of today.
     
  4. Restaurant chains are nowadays trying to tempt customers with healthier options like salads or soups, but they're hardly healthy and are instead full of preservatives.
     
  5. The desserts and sodas that you love are full of artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup. Sugar is hardly nutritious and only adds to energy levels, which when not burnt off lead to all the oodles of fat in your belly. It can also increase your resistance to insulin.
     
  6. A lot of the ingredients in restaurant food are processed foods that contain artificial chemicals like colourants, preservatives, artificial flavours and textures. Its harmful nature can never be stressed upon enough.
     
  7. Eating refined flour on a regular basis is a big no-no. Its carbohydrates are difficult for the digestive tract to break down, once again leading it to be accumulated. Don't get mislead by promises of 'whole grain' items; for even they are whole grain, they are broken down to finer flour that hardly retains its nutritive value.

No wonder it's called 'junk food', it only brings harm to your body. Make a conscious effort to replace it with real, fresh food that actually contains nutrients and not artificial chemicals.

Air Pollution - How Is It Impacting Us?

Air Pollution - How Is It Impacting Us?

Delhi is one of the most polluted cities in the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Though Kanpur is the most polluted city in the world (until now), Delhi is also among the top 10 polluted cities with a higher concentration of PM 2.5.

India is progressing on many fronts, but the country remains stagnant when it comes to air pollution control. As per the latest records, amongst the top 20 polluted cities on earth, 13 of them are in India. According to the World Health Organization’s air quality guideline, the particulate matter (PM 2.5) should not be greater than 25 μg/m3 for 24 hour-mean and 10 μg/m3 for annual mean. However, surprisingly, Delhi had an average of 153 micrograms per cubic meter in its air.

Delhi air is already causing harmful effects on the lungs and alveoli due to the increased number of pollutants in the air. It is causing severe lung damage to children residing in Delhi. More than 4.4 million children in Delhi are now suffering from chronic lung conditions.

Causes

The reason attributed to this problem is the increased number of vehicles on the road, diesel generators and coal factories surrounding the national capital. More than 20,000 vehicles are added every day in the country. Harmful gasses like Nitrous Oxide, Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide have poisoned the air beyond revival.

It’s a false belief that we will be safer if we stay inside our homes rather than if we are outside harbors. The indoor air isn’t any different than outdoor air. This is because the level of PM 2.5 particles in the indoor and outdoor air is unchanged. The PM 2.5 particles, the major reason for diseases like Bronchitis, COPD and Asthma, are found as much in the indoor air as outside the doors. The diameter of these particles ranges from 0.5 nanometers to 2.5 nanometers, giving it the name PM 2.5, and in order to fight the indoor air pollution crisis, we have to find a way to break down these particles.

Solution

The only way to cut down this pollution is by bringing significant lifestyle changes in our daily living. We should concentrate more on using public transport instead of private vehicles. Cutting down the number of diesel and petrol vehicles can also prove helpful. People should shift to CNG and electric vehicles for daily commutation. These efforts, if practiced on a regular basis, can bring a huge decrease in pollution.

Air purifiers can also be a healthy option for indoor purposes.

Conclusion

The pollutants in Delhi’s air are increasing and we aren’t safe even if we are behind the closed doors. The only way to battle this problem is by getting an air purifier that will break down harmful particles in the air that are responsible for diseases.

A Playful Approach To Enhance Communication & Social Skills In Children!

A Playful Approach To Enhance Communication & Social Skills In Children!

Play is an important way, through which a child learns about the world. Through playful activities, children learn to socialize and communicate with others, solve problems, and use language effectively. 

Play is a form of expression – it is fun and all-important to cognitive, social, physical, and even emotional development. Learning through play is gaining recognition as a way to improve social and communication skills in children.

What does a playful approach to learning mean?

Playful learning implies that when children engage in enjoyable activities that are meaningful and relevant, they are able to memorize things for longer and develop holistic skills at the same time for lifelong learning. This usually takes place in a setting where the child has opportunities to take risks, share their experiences with others, and imagine new things.

How does playfulness help while learning?

Children who are engaged in playful activities are empowered to use their strengths and take part in experiences that they find relevant to their interests. Internal motivation and self-efficacy is the key to the characteristics of playful learning. 

Research suggests that parents who respond to their child’s playful behaviour – by describing, labelling, or asking questions about the events or objects that are of interest to the child – improve intellectual and communication skills in them. In turn, kids develop a large vocabulary arming them with the necessary skills that are needed to acquire to perform well in academics. 

Parents can take a playful approach by following these tips – 

  • Allow your child to be creative – through music and art – and express his/her thoughts more clearly. Sit by their side and watch them learn using different colours, shapes, and forms. 

  • Encourage your child to play with puzzles, or paint a picture, as it will encourage their artistic skills

  • Find out what triggers a positive response in your child and what prompts disruptive, challenging behaviour in him/her

When you interact with your child, talking and listening, singing and reading together, you are helping them learn about spoken and written communication, language, as well as conversational skills, such as taking turns and listening.

Hi doctor, I have hypothyroid initial stage of tsh range 6.13. Doctor has suggested thyronorm 25 mcg for three month....
Sneha ji Thanks for the query. With TSH at 6.13 mU/L the condition is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is advocated. Since you have already started it, then check TSH again after 6 weeks, then let us see. Madam hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder and hence supplementation has to be given for lifetime. Thanks

Just do urine pregnancy test. If negative. Mostly your periods should come within a week. As there os no ovulation and due to pill effect the periods can get postponed but will surely come within a week to 10 days.

Asthma & Allergy - How To Avert Them In Kids?

Asthma & Allergy - How To Avert Them In Kids?

It is no longer so surprising to read about alarming air pollution levels in our cities. On more than one occasion, these levels have risen above the danger levels. For some people, this may simply create an annoying fog that makes it difficult to see. For others, it can cause serious health issues. Air pollution is one of the most common reasons for the growing instances of asthma and allergies. Children are most susceptible to such diseases caused by air pollution.

Asthma and Allergies
Asthma can affect children even before their fifth birthday and the condition is characterized by breathlessness caused by a constriction of the airways. While the root cause of asthma is unknown, it is usually seen that asthmatic patients are more sensitive to others to particles in the air such as pollutants, dander, dust, smoke etc. Thus, the airways construct as a reaction to these allergens. Changes in the weather, a sudden cold draft or the flu can also aggravate asthma.

Can you protect your children from asthma?
Wheezing, panting, finding it difficult to breathe and a persistent cough are some of the signs of asthma. If you notice these symptoms, you must consult a doctor immediately. At home, here are a few things you could do.

  1. Avoid exposing your children to smoke: Do not smoke around your children or allow others to smoke around them. If you cannot give up the habit, wear a smoking jacket when you smoke and take this off before you play with your children. When you’ll go out, drive with the windows up so that your child does not inhale exhaust smoke. Set your air conditioner to circulate air within the car itself.
  2. Dust often: Try and keep your home as dust free as possible. Use a wet cloth to clean so that the dust does not fly in the air. Wash all your bed linen once a week. Carpets and rugs should be vacuumed regularly or dusted outside. It may also be a good idea to invest in dust mite impermeable covers for your child’s mattress and pillows.
  3. Keep your Pets clean: If you share your home with pets, bathe them once a week and brush them daily. Do not let them climb on to the furniture or your beds. Also, avoid having their toys lie on your beds.
  4. Wear a face mask: Try and time your child’s outdoor activities when the pollution levels are low. Buy yourself and your child a face mask that will filter the air they breathe in. These should be worn whenever they play outdoors.

These simple steps could help your child be healthier and can prevent asthma and other such allergic reactions.

Laser & Acne - How Former Can Take Care Of Latter?

Laser & Acne - How Former Can Take Care Of Latter?

The skin is the most visible part of the human body, and acne is one of the most common skin problems. In addition to being a cosmetic issue, it also dampens a person’s image and confidence levels. The issue is more complicated given the age group it affects – teenagers and young adolescents who are always keen on looking their best.

During the pustular stage, there is a lot of itching, burning, and pain. As they dry and fall off, there are marks which sometimes take forever to disappear. Recent cosmetic advancements have successfully used the laser to get rid of these marks, almost completely.

Laser in Acne:

  • Laser works in controlling acne in more than one way.
  • During laser treatment session, a beam of light is applied on the acne-affected area. This helps in removing the acne scar without damaging the surrounding tissue. The beam of light is highly focused on only the scar tissue.
  • The increased number of cells which are left behind after acne are killed by the laser beam, thereby lightening the skin and reducing the scars.
  • The bacteria that are present in the acne are killed when a beam of the laser is applied. This reduces the number of bacteria present in it, thereby reducing the severity of acne.
  • The laser beam also reduces excessive sebum production, thereby reducing the incidence of acne. Excessive sebum is directly related to the severity of acne.
  • Laser is used in all kinds of acne – papules, pustules, whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and nodules.
  • While the exact treatment plan will be determined based on skin type and intensity of the scars, most treatment plans would include about 3 sessions.

What to expect:

  • Set realistic expectations and understand possible risks and complications. A detailed discussion of going for laser session is essential with the doctor. Clarify if you are a good candidate for laser.
  • Sunbathing, waxing, collagen injections are to be avoided for at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure.
  • Chemicals like deodorants and perfumes are to be avoided in the proposed area of laser
  • Tell your doctor about any medications or supplements that you are on. While some may be stopped, others may need dose adjustments.
  • Immediately after the laser session, the skin would appear red for about 4 to 8 hours.
  • The skin might feel itchy and prickly and even be swollen mildly
  • Apply cool packs or moist cloths to reduce this itching
  • Use copious amounts of moisturiser at least twice daily
  • Avoid makeup until the redness and itching have subsided.

Benefits:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Usually done in 2 to 3 sittings
  • Shorter recovery period
  • Minimal pain
  • Laser therapy is used for multiple other skin problems, so treatment can be clubbed.
