Are you turning your children into stroller potatoes?

Nowadays, it’s a familiar sight to see children old enough to walk, being pushed around in strollers. Strollers are meant for infants who need to be carried. As soon as children begin to walk, parents must discard the strollers and encourage the children to walk.

Dr. Martin I. Lorin, a pediatrician in his famous book ‘The Parents’ Book of Physical Fitness for Children’ says confining children to strollers, means that “young muscles languish away for want of exercise”.

Parents who confine their children to strollers because children don’t keep pace with them or they run around or they get tired and insist on being carried, are not doing them a favour; they are doing a great injustice to them. Once children get addicted to being pushed in strollers, they lose the desire to walk and become stroller potatoes. It is no wonder they become couch potatoes, when they grow into adults.

If we carefully observe those children who are encouraged to walk and those children who are wheeled around in strollers, we can notice that most of the children who walk are of right weight whereas most of the children who are wheeled around are overweight.

It’s a proven fact that more than the diet, it’s the lack of physical activity that leads to obesity. Parents who confine their children to strollers, high chairs, infant seats and playpens, unintentionally become the cause of their obesity.

Carry your infant children who can’t walk. It promotes bonding and is a good exercise for the parents. When your children can walk, encourage your children to walk. It’s a good exercise for the children.

Is chlorinated water safe for pregnant women?

Water chlorination is a widely used, cost-effective purification method to disinfect water and reduce the risk of waterborne diseases. Public authorities all over the world resort to chlorination of tap water as a means to purify drinking water, not because it is the safest procedure, but because it is the cheapest procedure. Studies in the past have highlighted the harmful by-products in the chlorinated water. The latest research suggests that prenatal exposure to these by-products may increase the risk of birth defects.

Drinking chlorinated water during pregnancy may increase the risk of having children with heart problems, cleft palate or major brain defects, according to a study published in the ‘Environmental Health’ journal.

The research team, led by Jouni Jaakkola from the Institute of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, University of Birmingham, UK, analysed data pertaining to almost 400,000 infants. They found that exposure to high levels of by-products in the chlorinated water, substantially increased the risk of three common birth defects: holes in the heart (ventricular septal defects), cleft palate and brain defects (anencephalus).

“The biological mechanism for how those disinfection by-products may cause defects are still unknown. However, our findings don’t just add to the evidence that water chlorination may cause birth defects, but suggest that exposure to chlorination by-products may be responsible for some specific and common defects,” says Jaakkola.

Vegetables that help prevent bladder cancer

Scientists at Rosewell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York have found that cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage provides protection against bladder cancer.

“People who consume at least 3 or more servings of cruciferous vegetables a month had about a 40% reduction in risk of bladder cancer,” says Dr. Susan McCann, PhD at Rosewell Park Cancer Institute.

Researches say the amount of protection you get is remarkable, considering how little you have to eat. Just three servings a month, can help keep your bladder healthy. But, there is catch. When these vegetables are cooked, they become less effective. “When they are eaten raw, they induce a kind of enzyme that may detoxify carcinogens,” says James Marshall, PhD at Rosewell Park Cancer Institute.

The cruciferous vegetables that are tastier to eat raw, are cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Turnip, Kohlrabi, Brussels sprout and Bokchoy can also be tried.

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have earlier discovered that cruciferous vegetables have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties. These vegetables are also rich in vitamin C and soluble fibre.

Artificial food dyes linked to behaviour problems in children

Artificial colourings are linked to hyperactivity and behaviour problems in children and must be banned from use in foods, according to the Centre for Science in the Public Interest. The non-profit, public-interest group urged the FDA(Food and Drug Administration) to ban the eight artificial colourings Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Orange B, Red 3 and Yellow 6.

Synthetic food dyes have been suspected of disrupting children’s behaviour since the 1970s, when Dr. Ben Feinglod reported that his patients improved when their diets were changed.

“The science shows that kids’ behaviour improves when these artificial colourings are removed from their diets and worsens when they are added to their diets,” says Dr. David Schab, a psychiatrist at Columbia University Medical Centre.

Artificial dyes are particularly prevalent in the sugary cereals, candies, sodas and snack foods pitched to kids. Dyes are used in countless foods and are sometimes used to simulate the colour of fruits or vegetables. Kraft’s Guacamole Dip gets its greenish colour not from avocados but from Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Blue 1. Aunt Jemima Blueberry Waffles are blue not from real blueberries but from Blue 2 and Red 40. Even foods that aren’t brightly coloured, can contain dyes, including several varieties of macaroni, cheese and mashed potatoes.

Unlike the United States, the British Government is compelling the food manufacturers to use safer, natural colourings. In Britain, the colour in McDonald’s strawberry sauce for sundaes actually comes from strawberries, whereas in the US, it comes from Red 40.

“The continued use of these unnecessary artificial dyes is the secret shame of the food industry and the regulators who watch over it,” said F. Jacobson, Executive director of the Centre for Science in the Public Interest.

Is milk the best source of calcium?

Calcium is a mineral that the body needs for numerous functions, including building and maintaining bones and teeth, blood clotting, the transmission of nerve impulses and the regulation of the hearts rhythm. Calcium deficiency weakens the bones and leads to a crippling disease known as osteoporosis. This happens because the body ‘steals’ calcium from the bones, if the diet does not contain enough calcium.

When calcium is mentioned most people immediately think of milk. Milk is actually only one of many sources of calcium and there are some important reasons why milk may not be the best source of calcium.

Harvard School of Public Health mentions four important reasons why milk may not be the best source of calcium.

  1. Lactose Intolerance : Many people have some degree of lactose (milk protein) intolerance. For example, 90% of Asians, 70% of Blacks and 50% of Hispanics are lactose intolerant. For them eating or drinking dairy products causes bloating, gas formation and loose motion.
  2. High Saturated Fat Content: Many dairy products are high in saturated fats. High saturated fat intake is a risk factor for heart disease.
  3. Possible increased risk of Ovarian Cancer: High levels of galactose, a sugar released by the digestion of lactose in milk, have been studied as possibly damaging to the ovaries and leading to ovarian cancer.
  4. Probable increased risk of prostate cancer: A Harvard study found that men who drank two or more glasses of milk per day were almost twice as likely to develop advanced prostate cancer as those who didn’t drink milk at all.

What are the other best sources of calcium? Sesame seeds, Almonds, Broccoli and Sardines are some of the best sources of calcium.

Body Piercing is risky

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine conducted a study on the popularity and risks of body piercing. The study found that 10% of people aged 16 and above have had a body piercing somewhere other than the ear lobe.

The study revealed that women are more likely than man to have a body piercing and men and women preferred different types of piercing. 33% of the respondents have had a navel piercing; 19% of the respondents have had a nose piercing; 9% of the respondents have had a tongue piercing; 9% of the respondents have had a nipple piercing; 8% of the respondents have had a eyebrow piercing and 4% of the respondents have had a lip piercing.

Common medical problems included swelling, infection and bleeding. Half of the tongue piercing led to complications. One third of the respondents in the age group of 16 to 24, reported having problems and had to seek help from a professional.

The study found that most piercing, including tongue piercing were done in shops. The study also found that people who receive piercing from non-specialists are likely to have serious complications.

Youngsters, especially in the age group of 16 to 24, need to become aware of the potential complications of body piercing. Shops and individuals who offer body piercing must warn the youngsters of the risks involved in body piercing.

Active social life may delay memory loss

One of the features of aging is memory loss, which can adversely affect the quality of life. In a new study, researchers from the School of Public Health found evidence that elderly people who have an active social life may have a slower rate of memory decline.

Previous studies have suggested that an active social life may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive decline among the elderly.

Karen Ertel, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard and her colleagues analyzed data gathered from 1998 to 2004. Memory was assessed in 1998, 2000, 2002 and 2004. Social integration was assessed by marital status, volunteer activities and contact with parents, children and neighbours.

The results showed that individuals with the highest social integration had the slowest rate of memory decline. In fact, memory decline among the most integrated was less than half the rate among the least integrated.

“Social participation and integration have profound effects on health and well being of people during their lifetimes,” said senior author Lisa Berkman.

We know from previous studies that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates. We now have mounting evidence that strong social networks can help prevent declines in memory.
