Environmental Protection

The environment is this whole surrounding around you where you and many other living beings breath and live. In other words, take the environment as a huge bubble of the atmosphere where different biological beings stay together for survival and interact with each other. This is one of the easiest and crystal clear definition to understand the true meaning of the environment. Obviously when it comes for survival then Environmental protection is really necessary to survive together.Global WarmingAs time is passing, humans have been making certain developments that were necessary for their comfort more like extravagance rather than necessity. So, if you would have understood the definition of environment then it clearly tells us that this whole place is meant for mutual survival, not merely the survival of one of the species. Now when humans have developed different objects which added luxury to their lives, they have disrupted the balance of the ecosystem hence not only endangering the…

What is diarrhea ?


What is diarrhea? all you need to know

Diarrhea is loose, watery stools (bowel movements). You have diarrhea if you have loose stools two or more times in one day.
Many people get diarrhea a few times a year, others not as often. It normally lasts 2 to 3 days and could be because they have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other conditions.

Symptoms of diarrhea:

People with diarrhea may also have one or more of the following symptoms:
·  An urgent need to use the bathroom
·  Cramping
·  Loss of control of bowel movement
·  Nausea
·  Pain in the abdomen
People with diarrhea caused by some infections may have one or more of the following symptoms:
·  Bloody stools
·  Fever and chills
·  Light-headedness and dizziness
·  Vomiting
Diarrhea may cause dehydration and malabsorption.

Causes of diarrhea:

Severe and persistent diarrhea may have causes that are different from those of chronic diarrhea. In many cases, Doctors do not find the diarrhea. Mostly diarrhea goes away on its own within 4 days and finding the cause is not necessary.
Acute and persistent diarrhea:
The most common cause of acute and persistent diarrhea are infections, travelers’ diarrhea, and side effect of medicine.
Infections:
Three types of infections that cause diarrhea include:
·  Viral infection: many virus causes diarrhea, including norovirus and rotavirus. Viral gastroenteritis is the common cause of acute diarrhea.
·  Bacterial infection: several types of bacteria can enter your body through contaminated food or water and cause diarrhea. Common bacteria that cause diarrhea include campylobacter, Escherichia coli, salmonella, and shigella.
·  Parasitic infection: parasites can enter your body through food or water and settle in your digestive tract.

7 foods that cause diarrhea:

Diarrhea, or watery, loose stool is a symptom of an upset diarrhea. Most adults have some form of diarrhea every year. Most of the time, these episodes are caused by a bad bacteria or virus that your body is trying to get rid of in a hurry. But it's also not unusual to have diarrhea that's triggered by specific food that you eat.
Foods that caused diarrhea tend to contain high amounts of artificial ingredients, oils, spices, or stimulants. Here are some of the common sources.
·  Spicy seasonings: spicy seasoning is perhaps the most common source of food-induced diarrhea, especially if it's a strong spice that you're not used to. It irritates the stomach lining while it is digested. This causes gas, bloating, burning, and in many cases diarrhea. Curry blends and chili peppers are the most common causes.
·  Artificial sweeteners: alternative sugars such as aspartame saccharine, and sugar alcohols knows as FODMAPs dispute the biology of the lower intestinal tract. In fact, cutting out artificial sweeteners is now a recommended treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. So it's not astounding that eating food with artificial sweetener in it causes a lot of people to have diarrhea.
·  Milk: if you find that drinking milk or eating other dairy products has you running to the bathroom, you may be lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance tends to run in families. It can develop later in life and many individuals don't know that they have it. Lactose intolerance means that your body doesn't have the enzymes to break down the milk sugar, leaving it indigestible. So your body disposes of it pretty much instantly, often in the form of diarrhea.
·  Coffee: the caffeine in coffee is a stimulate. It does not just jump-start our brains; it also stimulates our digestive system. Add that to the fact that many of us stir in other digestive triggers such as dairy and artificial sweeteners to our morning cup of coffee, and joe can be one of the most common diarrhea triggers for some people.
·  Garlic and onion: both garlic and onion are extremely high in insoluble fiber. They also contain juices that when broken down by the acid in your stomach can release gases that irritate the bowels. They are also fructans, meaning they contain a carbohydrate complex that difficult to digest. All of this means these recipes favorites can turn into a recipe for an upset stomach.
·  Broccoli and cauliflower: broccoli and cauliflowers contain a high amount of nutrients, as well as bulk vegetable fiber. You might think that would be a good thing, but the digestive tract does not react well to a large amount of fiber when it's not using to eating them. Unless you regularly eat broccoli or cauliflowers a big serving might cause constipation, gas, or diarrhea.
·  Fast foods: foods that are high in saturated fats such as the ones found in fast-food restaurants, are not easy for the body to break down and digest. there's little nutritional value in them so there's not much for your body to extract. Instead, these foods just pass on through your body, leaving quickly. if you are in the mood for fast food avoid options that have been deep-fried in oil, such as fried chicken and French fries. Be wary of ground beef or bacon that comes from the drive-through too. They are also often prepared with saturated fats and oils.

Teens In a Dilemma Of What Is Right And What Is Wrong

A teenager, or teen, is a person who falls within the ages of 13 to 19 years old. The word "teenager" is often associated with adolescence. However the World Health Organization considers anyone between the ages of 10 and 21 to be an adolescent, and most neurologists consider the brain still developing into the early third decade (early 20s). After the 20th birthday, one is no longer a teenager. However, neural plasticity continues, as the brain and particularly the prefrontal cortex (PFC) develop further.
When typical teen behavior becomes troubled teen behavior
As teenagers begin to assert their independence and find their own identity, many experience behavior changes that can seem, bizarre and unpredictable to parents. Your sweet and obedient child who once couldn’t bear to be separated from you, now won’t be seen within 20 yards of you, and greets everything you say with the roll of the eyes or the slam of a door. As difficult as this can be for parents to endure, they ar…

How to know your worth?

Self-worth means that you value yourself, and you have a sense of self-value which means that you are worthy. Self-worth is defined by Merriam-Webster as:“A feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect”.Here are five of the top factors that people use to measure and compare their own self-worth to the worth of others:1.Appearance—whether measured by the number on the scale, the size of clothing worn, or the kind of attention received by others;2.Net worth—this can mean income, material possessions, financial assets, or all of the above;3.Who you know/your social circle—some people judge their own value and the value of others by their status and what important and influential people they know;4.What you do/your career—we often judge others by what they do; for example, a stockbroker is often considered more successful and valuable than a janitor or a teacher;5.What you achieve—as noted earlier, we frequently use achievements to determine someone’s worth (…
