Air Pollution and its Effects on Children's Lungs

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Air Pollution and its Effects on Children's Lungs

Air pollution is known to take a toll on the lungs of even the healthiest adults. So it comes as no surprise that the effects of this pollution on the lungs of children is deemed as a grave situation, full of health hazards including the onset of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders and conditions like asthma (learn more about asthma problem). Read on to find out more about the link between air pollution and its effect on the lungs of children.

Children's Lungs: Mostly, all the organs of a child's body are considered delicate and not fully matured until the child reaches a certain age. The main and largest part of the child's lungs will usually grow only after the child has been born, much like the arms and legs. In fact, it is a medically proven fact that about 80% of the tiniest of air sacs grow after the child's birth. These are called the alveoli and they facilitate the transfer of the oxygen into the blood stream with a life sustaining function that is built into our lungs. These alveoli continue to grow until the child becomes an adult. 

Immunity and Infections: Like the lungs of the child, the immunity of the child is also still in its growth phase, and very much unlike the immunity that an adult enjoys. This makes the child more susceptible to infections that are usually carried by air pollution in today's day and age of urban living when myriad pollutants are sent into the air every single day. Also, since children play outdoors more often and spend more time breathing in this air, they are more prone to these infections and lung or respiratory ailments due to this reason. Various studies and tests have shown inflammation in the respiratory passages caused by deposits of carbon dioxide emissions in the lungs of children.

Symptoms: Usually, the very first symptoms that show that air pollution is affecting the child's lungs can be seen when persistent coughing and wheezing sets in, without any proper reason. Also, when the child faces bronchial infections time and time again, then this points at the hazardous effects of air pollution as well. 

Respiratory problems: Apart from respiratory problem, which can lead to asthmatic attacks, hay fever and allergies as well as other COPD ailments, there are other related dangers. These can happen when constant choking and obstruction of oxygen due to pollution become a regular affair. These include strokes and brain damage which can eventually also lead to a higher risk of dementia. 

The government and citizens need to ensure that there is a drop in particle air pollution so as to ensure that children do not fall prey to such health problems.

I'm suffering from ulcer in mouth since from childhood what can I do for that to avoid it kindly guide me sir waiting. I have also taking tablets but no permanent solution can you suggest any permanent solution please help.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
Ulcers in mouth could be in any form, size, shape, number and duration. It is more often found above the age of 20 years, in both sexes. Children also may present with oral ulcers. Having ulcers once in a couple of years may not need much attention. However, if the ulcers keep recurring and if they take long time to heal, it calls for evaluation and strategic treatment.

9 Major Causes of Premature Graying of Hair and its Solutions

9 Major Causes of Premature Graying of Hair and its Solutions

It is a growing concern that today even kids as young as ten years old suffer from #graying of #hair. It was a very rare phenomenon even a few years ago but it is increasing every day. #stress.

Today even children are not out of bounds of #stress and hence #graying of #hair starts as early as in a ten year old. But to prevent #graying of #hair you have to know about it a little. Hence read on to know more.

Every #hair #follicle has #melanocytes, which are hair pigmentation producing cells. When a hair #strand grows out of a #hair #follicle, #melanocytes inject #melanin into the #strand that makes the #hair colored. Usually with age, the #melanocytes slowly stop producing the #melanin, thus making the hair #strands turn first #gray and then white. But due to some reasons like some kinds of illness or #stress or lack of proper #nutrition, the #melanocytes might stop producing enough #melanin before time. This is what causes #premature graying of hair.

The kind of illnesses that might cause #premature #graying of #hair includes #hyperthyroidism, #hormonal #imbalances, #hypothyroidism, #pernicious #anemia and so on. It can also be caused by excessive damage to the #hair that happens from the effect of using chemical #dyes frequently, keeping the #scalp unclean and effect of some high dosage drugs. Since the reasons of #premature #graying of #hair are varied, it is suggested that for treatment you consult a good #trichologist first before trying anything for yourself. For one thing using dyes that contain #ammonia to color your hair would be a mistake that would further aggravate the problem. But unfortunately that is what most people do.

While there are many reasons that cause early #graying of #hair.

Major causes for premature graying of hair are: 


    #pollution
    Lack of proper #nutrition
    #hyperthyroidism
    #hormonal #imbalances
    #hypothyroidism
    #pernicious #anemia
    Usage of #chemical #dyes
    Keeping #scalp unclean
    Consumption of some high dosage drugs


If you too are facing the problem of #premature #graying of #hair, make sure you consult a good #trichologist to find out the reason behind the problem. Once the reason is clear it would be much easier to find a solution too. If the only option you have is to color your #hair, make sure you use a color that contains no #ammonia. Hence using something natural like the henna would be a good idea. And if you are fortunate to still have a mane of hair that has not started to gray yet, make sure you take proper care of it.

How does green tea help in losing weight And how much can a person loose in a Month if he takes it daily with a healthy diet.

When you drink a cup of quality green tea, you’re actually getting a large amount of beneficial substances with potent biological effects. The best known of these is caffeine. A cup of green tea contains much less caffeine (24-40 mg) than a cup of coffee (100-200 mg), but still enough to have a mild effect. Caffeine is a well known stimulant that has been shown to aid fat burning and improve exercise performance. But where green tea really shines is in its massive range of antioxidants… being loaded with potent antioxidants called catechins. The most important of these is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism and help burn fat. If you follow a good nutrition program with intense exercise along with green tea, then you can lose upto 3-4 kg in a month.

Not eating is the main reason why you gain weight. Avoiding food and crashing your diet causes metabolism to lower. This leads to accumulation of fats. The idea is to eat sensibly and right. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

Sir. My father has been gone through pilea around 20 years back and now when we had tested him. There was something dots in lever. And doctors here alert him as pre serosis condition and his weight is around 115 kg. And they diagnose him that you are on the level of sugar. So you have to healthy diets without sugar. Exercises and walks daily and they had started medicines too. Please guide me what to do next. He has put down 6 kg in 10 days after having total healthy diet. He takes no sugar now. And walks morning n evening.

6kgs in 10 days is not a correct way to lose weight. If you lose muscle mass you will show as a lot of loss on scale. Try to lose weight in the right manner and gradually. If you crash diet your metabolism can go low and your fats will just remain there. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.
