Think Diwali and you can’t help but think of firecrackers. The festival of lights is synonymous with the bursting of firecrackers all night long. But stop a minute to think: are burning firecrackers really good for your health? The answer would be a resounding ‘No!’ Bringing out the fireworks is not only bad for the environment, the old and the infirm, and the animals all around, but it is also bad for you. Here are 5 deadly effects of firecrackers on your health that perhaps we tend to ignore every Diwali!
1. Harmful for your ears: First and foremost, you can’t deny the loud booms and bangs of firecrackers; and considering the trend these days, the louder the better. An average human being can bear noise levels of up to a maximum of 85 decibels. Sound produced by firecrackers can go as high as 140 decibels! That’s way beyond what human ears can handle, and such high levels can cause hearing impairments and even permanent ear damage. Increased heartbeat and high blood pressure are other things you can suffer from due to excessively high noise levels.
2. Injuries and burns: This is something you do know. A lot of burns and injuries take place due to unsafe practices used while bursting firecrackers. Burns on the hands and legs are pretty common, especially among children. In fact, in some serious cases a misfired rocket or a chocolate bomb can lead to massive fires, which is, needless to say, definitely not good for you and your health.
3. Respiratory and skin troubles: When you launch the fireworks one after the other, you give rise to excessive smoke. This smoke contains miniscule metallic particles, which produce very dense and foggy smog. A lot of road accidents take place because of this obstruction in visibility. The chemicals in this smog are specifically harmful for those suffering from asthma and other respiratory diseases. In fact, these chemicals can also give rise to skin rashes, sinusitis, eye infections, headaches and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD). Children and pregnant women seem to fall into the high-risk zones.
4. Stomach Problems: While lighting firecrackers, or by simply holding them in your hands, your body absorbs the chemicals they are composed of. Even washing hands is not enough to get rid of these hazardous chemicals entirely. Minute traces of these are left in your hands, which are ingested while you have your meals. This can lead to indigestion, and other digestive problems. Even the water you consume becomes tainted with the pollution in the air at this time of the year, making it unfit for consumption.
5. Other health hazards: Nausea and mental impairment, and even heart attack are some of the other things that can happen to you while indulging in the fireworks fun. Sleeping disturbance is another common problem faced at this time of the year. The loud noise gives rise to sleepless nights for many, and results in fatigue the next day.
Before watching the sparkles, colours and magical lights of fire crackers this Diwali, be sure to ask yourself, is it really worth it?
WISH YOU A HAPPY AND SAFE DIWALI!

Some men find it difficult to enjoy intercourse because they cannot maintain an erection for long. In some cases, they may even find it difficult to have an erection in the first place. This condition is fairly common and is known as erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be an embarrassing condition to talk about but if left unaddressed, it could cause harm to your psychological health.
Not being able to have an erection once in a while is not something to worry about but if this persists over time, you should consult a doctor. Though the physical inability to have or maintain an erection is the most prominent symptom of this condition, it can also be accompanied by a lack of sexual desire.
Erectile dysfunction can be caused by a number of factors. These can be categorized as physical causes, psychological causes or a combination of the two. For example, a physical ailment could stress you out and create anxiety thus keep you from having an erection. Some such physical causes include heart conditions, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, obesity, diabetes. Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, prolonged use of tobacco, Peyronie’s disease, insomnia or the use of certain types of medication such as those used to treat an enlarged prostate.
- Surgeries that affect the pelvic area could also contribute towards erectile dysfunction. Some of the psychological factors that contribute towards erectile dysfunction are stress, anxiety, relationship troubles, depression etc.
- Age also plays an important role in having an erection. As a man gets older, his ability to have an erection and maintain it for a long period of time reduces. They may also not be as firm as they were when he was younger.
- Some of the other risk factors that can contribute towards erectile dysfunction are injuries that could have damaged nerves or arteries in the pelvic region, any kind of pelvic surgery, radiation treatment, obesity, smoking and alcohol consumption, diabetes, heart conditions, regular use of antidepressants or antihistamines and usage of drugs.
Treatment for erectile dysfunction depends on the severity of the condition and the factors triggering it. This could take the form of oral medications such as viagra, suppositories, injectable medication, hormone replacement therapy, penis pumps or penile implants. However, do not try any of these remedies without consulting a doctor. If the condition is being triggered by a psychological cause, counselling could also help. In addition, moderate to high impact aerobic exercises can help improve this condition. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
