Meat is nutritious, but it also increases disease

Meat is nutritious, but it also increases disease


Now the community of those who stop eating meat is growing all over the world. According to a report published in the BBC, the number of people giving up meat for the sake of the environment and animal welfare is increasing.


It is written in the BBC, "If we talk about Britain, one third of citizens are claiming that they have stopped eating meat." Even in America, two-thirds of citizens say that they are eating much less meat than in the past.



But even though the number of vegetarians is increasing in the world, the consumption of meat has not decreased. In the last 50 years, meat consumption has been increasing rapidly in the world. In addition, meat production has also increased. There are basically two reasons for the increase in meat consumption, one is population growth. Another thing is people's purchasing power.


The method of meat production is also different in developed countries. Animals are raised there for any purpose. Young and healthy animals are slaughtered with as little pain as possible. The meat produced in this way is stored and sold according to healthy standards.


But we do not have a procedure to check how much meat produced is edible. Nor is the animal's health checked before slaughter. For this reason, doctors here suggest to control the amount of meat as much as possible. A summary of some studies says, "Especially red meat can cause heart disease, heart attack and some types of cancer."


Nutritionist Bhupal Baniyan says that consumers in Nepal are forced to eat low-quality meat because the Meat Inspection Act cannot be implemented effectively. He says, "When businessmen sell and distribute meat without testing, the people here are forced to eat low-quality and unhealthy meat."


The Slaughterhouse Acts have been framed under the Animal Slaughterhouse and Meat Inspection Act-2055. There are many laws such as checking before slaughtering animals, checking the meat of slaughtered animals, marking or marking the meat. If the law is not implemented, there is a provision of a fine ranging from 5 to 20 thousand rupees and imprisonment for up to one month. But all these laws have not been implemented, nor have the relevant agencies monitored whether they have been implemented.


We eat chicken meat because chicken meat is healthier than red meat. But in order to make the chicken marketable quickly, the businessmen use a large amount of different types of antibiotics in the feed,'' he says.


It is not that all businessmen have given antibiotics to chickens beyond the standard. Some have even produced and sold chicken meat according to the standards. An example of that is the Valley Cold Store, said Baniyan.


Baniyan says, "Earlier, Khasiboka was reared in the village. But now, grain is fed to make the chicken grow faster. As a result, it takes a lot of fat. He says, 'The amount of saturated fat in beef is high. As a result, consuming too much beef can cause heart problems.


The raw meat of Ranga contains various types of germs including worms and 'microbacterial contamination'. Baniyan says, 'If this meat is not cooked properly and eaten, it can cause kidney and liver problems in the long run.'


"How to cut meat, how to sell, etc. standards are not only in foreign countries but also in Nepal. But since there is no body to monitor whether that standard is met, Baniyan says that diseased and low-quality meat can cause various diseases.


In this way, eating meat with a lot of antibiotics may not cause any problems, but over time, chronic diseases may increase. Therefore, if any animal's meat is fit to be eaten, the vet doctor advises that it should be sold and distributed only after examining it and saying that it is fit to be eaten.


How edible is the fish?


From the point of view of health, Baniyan says that it is better to eat fish because it contains protein and omega three. "But since the fish produced in Nepal cannot meet the market demand, fish are imported from India and other countries," he says.


Even after bringing it to Nepal, formalin is used to keep it on sale for a long time. Baniyan says that eating fish that has been kept in formalin for a long time can affect the kidneys and liver in the long term. Therefore, he suggests that when buying fish from the market, it is better to bring live fish than dead fish.


What does the food research officer say?


According to Food Research Officer Ujjwal Rayamazhi, protein obtained from meat has more biological value than that obtained from legumes. This means that the protein in the meat can be absorbed and used more by the body. That's why eating meat is good for health, Rayamazhi says, so it is consumed all over the world.


How healthy is the meat found in Nepal? How healthy are the animals used for meat? The relevant agency is responsible for monitoring the matter. But there has not been as much monitoring as there should be," says Rayamazhi.


He says that it is not true that the market is filled with meat that has been used in large amounts of antibiotics. Rayamazhi says. "According to some of our monitoring, many businessmen have worked according to the standards. But in Nepal, cattle rearing for meat and selling meat is done at home. this Some businessmen may have given too many hormones for profit.

There is a reason why different companies recommend drugs for the same disease

There is a reason why different companies recommend drugs for the same disease


When we are sick, the doctor prescribes medicine. If the medicine does not cure the problem, we blame the doctor or the pharmacist. But have we used and safely used the medicine we bought? The side effects of any medicine can be just as frightening if it is not used properly instead of being stored properly. About the quality and use of the medicine given by the doctor, Dr. Manipal College of Medical Sciences, Pokhara. Sudesh Gyawali was asked some questions by online news.

Some misconduct can be the cause of diabetes

Some misconduct can be the cause of diabetes


Diabetes is a disease that, if left unchecked, can lead to other diseases. For example, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, etc. But, there is nothing to be afraid of. Because with some precautions, all these dangers can be avoided. When someone first finds out they have diabetes, they are very worried. They keep asking themselves, 'Can diabetes be eradicated from the roots?'



Causes of diabetes:

Diabetes is one of the fastest-growing diseases in Nepal. Not only adults but also children suffer from this disease. Often people think that it is their faulty diet that causes them problems. The biggest cause of diabetes is some bad habits that are adopted in daily life. If these habits are improved, diabetes can be controlled to a great extent.


Staying in the office all-day


Most people stay in the office all day because they do not have time to get up. But this habit of yours can cause you heart problems along with diabetes.


Never sit in the sun


According to research, the biggest cause of diabetes is the lack of vitamin-D, which is found in the sun's rays. People with vitamin D deficiency have a higher risk of diabetes, so everyone should stay in the sun for at least half an hour without sunscreen.


Food wrapped in a plastic container


Researchers have also found that chemicals in plastic-wrapped foods increase insulin resistance. This is an early sign of diabetes.


Breakfast


Ignoring breakfast is also one of the biggest causes of diabetes. In fact, not eating breakfast in the morning disturbs the insulin balance in the body, which increases the chances of diabetes.


Intake of refined carbohydrates


White bread, white rice, flour, or other refined carbohydrates make the body produce more insulin. Because of this you soon start to feel hungry. This increases the risk of developing diabetes.


Intake of probiotics in the diet


Probiotics improve the digestive system but they also help regulate blood sugar levels. It causes you insomnia and stress. It raises blood sugar levels and puts you at risk for diabetes.


Drink at least 2/3 cup of coffee


Experts recommend drinking at least 2-3 cups of coffee a day. It can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. If you don't even drink coffee, you may have an increased risk of diabetes in some way.


Unhealthy habitual behavior


Wrong habits such as waking up late at night, sleeping less, not eating on time, smoking, and drinking alcohol also promote diabetes. In fact, it raises triglycerides in the body, which puts you at risk for type 2 diabetes.


Hanging on a lot of TVs


Even if you watch TV for at least 7 hours a day, you may have a higher risk of diabetes. A study has shown that every hour spent in front of the TV increases the risk of diabetes.


Drink less water


Drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. Because lack of water does not hydrate the body and increases the amount of sugar in the blood. This is also a must for diabetics.

What is Parkinson's disease?

What is Parkinson's disease?


Parkinson's disease is the spread or development of nerves or microscopic parts of the body. Which gradually affects your every move. Parkinson's is a problem that develops slowly in the human body. Sometimes only one hand vibrates to indicate this and sometimes the body itself begins to tremble. When Parkinson's becomes the main symptom of the disease, then the person may become unconscious due to abnormal tremors. In the early stages of Parkinson's disease, the gestures on your face tend to weaken.



Symptoms of Parkinson's disease


The symptoms and signs of this disease may vary from person to person. There may not be a complete signal at the beginning. The initial signs may be low and may not be easily detected. Symptoms often begin to appear on one side of your body and the condition worsens. After this, the whole body becomes affected by its symptoms.


The signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease are as follows.


Vibration: Your hands and fingers begin to tremble while walking or sitting still. This will cause your fingers and index finger to start rubbing against each other. This is called a pill-rolling trimmer. Cutting off the body or hands is a symptom of Parkinson's disease. We can take the vibration of your hand when you are at rest as its main symptom.


Laziness at work: This disease reduces your ability to walk and work. Due to which even a simple task can be difficult and time-consuming. It can take a long time for you to walk.


Tight Muscles: There may be pain in any part of your body or muscles. Stiff muscles can be restricted to limit movement.


Loss of automatic activity: Parkinson's patients may have a reduced ability to function unconsciously. These include blinking, smiling, or moving your hands. You can't gesture for a long time while talking.


Voice changes: Parkinson's disease can result in speech problems. This can be a problem even if your voice is less intense or blurred.


Causes and risk factors for Parkinson's disease


In Parkinson's disease, some of the nerves or cells present in the brain gradually become damaged or destroyed. Neurons produce a chemical in our brain called dopamine. Decreased levels of dopamine are caused by abnormal brain activity. As a result, there are signs of Parkinson's disease. The cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown.


Your genes: Researchers have identified specific genetic mutations. Which can cause Parkinson's disease. But it is uncommon in rare cases involving family members with Parkinson's disease.


Environmental Reasons: Some toxins or environmental influences may increase the risk to end-stage Parkinson's patients. But overall, it reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease.


In short, more research is needed to identify the factors responsible for Parkinson's disease.


What are the risk factors for Parkinson's?


The risk factors for Parkinson's disease are as follows


Aging - Parkinson's disease is very rare in young people. It usually starts in the middle or late stages of life and the risk increases with age. Patients are more likely to be over 60 years of age or older.


Heredity - If a close relative has Parkinson's, you are more likely to have it. As long as no one in your family has this problem, you are less likely to have this problem.


Men are at higher risk - Men are more likely than women to develop Parkinson's disease.


Exposure to toxins - Frequent exposure to herbicides and pesticides can increase your risk of developing Parkinson's disease.


Ways to prevent Parkinson's disease


The cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown. Therefore, the method of its prevention is also a mystery. Some research has now shown that the caffeine found in coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola is a drug that reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease. Green tea also reduces the risk. Regular aerobic exercise also helps reduce the risk of this disease.

What is leukemia?

What is leukemia?


Leukemia is an early stage of a type of blood cancer. It can be easily treated. But, for that, the disease must have been known at an early stage. If not treated in time, it can be dangerous and even fatal.



How to know


How do you know if your child has leukemia? Because its symptoms are normal, which we do not take seriously. However, from the following things, it can be known that the child is afraid of this disease.


- Repeatedly having the same type of infection


- Very high fever


- Weakening of the child's immune system


-Feeling tired and weak all the time


- Having anemia


- There is a problem of bleeding from nails and gums


- Experiencing pain in the joints


-Swelling different parts of the body


-There are knots in different parts of the body


- Having problems with the liver


- Frequent headaches. Or migraine


- Paralysis means having a stroke


- To be confused about something again and again. That is to be mentally stressed


-Vomiting


-Increased skin itching problem


- Having a problem of not feeling hungry


- It takes a long time for any wound to heal


Leukemia spreads rapidly


Early symptoms of leukemia include the flu and other serious illnesses. However, when leukemia spreads rapidly, all the above-mentioned problems start appearing at once. If these problems are ignored, leukemia can spread to other parts of the body. This is why the body begins to swell abnormally. But if the symptoms of leukemia are identified and treated at the right time, there is no risk of blood cancer.


Leukemia is a dangerous disease


Leukemia cells directly affect the blood. Of course, the symptoms of leukemia can be easily detected now. If one ignores it, and leukemia is not treated in time, his life will be only four years at most. This age also depends on the immune system and the type of leukemia.

Risk of disease while benefiting

Risk of disease while benefiting


Now we are the beneficiaries. You have become more interested. You have become fashionable. This has led to many health problems.


Car and motorcycle riders are now suffering from back pain. Because the position they take in bike riding, car driving, is very wrong. Prolonged exposure to such a position is the root of the problem.



In the car, sitting on the bike is the right position. In particular, it is better to sit comfortably in the seat with the spine straight. That doesn't mean you shouldn't bow down. All bending and kneeling should be done in the correct position.


We also sit in the same chair, in the same position for a long time in the office. Sitting like this is affecting our spinal cord as well as the internal organs of the body. We do not change our position as there is no immediate reaction. But, in time, that position starts to cause us problems.


The practice of wearing high heels is widespread now. High heels have become a must in formal wear. This has also led to the problem of back pain. Many now work on laptops. Watching movies, photos, videos, using Facebook is done on the laptop. Sitting in the same position for an hour with a laptop in your lap hurts your back and neck.


This problem is also seen in young children. According to doctors, children are now being brought to the hospital with neck pain. This problem has been seen in children who play games and watch videos on mobile phones and tablets.


Sitting, we feel very normal. But, there is a right position to sit. Often when we sit down, we sit down, bend over, bend over.


However, the backbone should be kept very straight. Due to this, the functioning inside our body can be done better. The heart, kidneys, digestive system, lungs can all work easily. Muscles are not affected. Blood flow is good. Because of this, we don't have any problem.


However, most of us Nepalis, i.e. 90 percent, do not come to life. Whether in an office chair, whether in a car, whether on a bike. Can't sit properly.


People in the army and the army stand in a straight position. The reason for this was not known before. Especially standing and sitting in that kind of position is a health-friendly style.


Our sleeping position is also not good. There is a correct position on how to sleep while sleeping. Sleeping in such a position does not affect blood flow, respiration, digestive process. But, we don't know that way of sleeping.


When we work in the office, we sit in the same position for hours, which brings physical complications. It doesn't matter what position you are in. This mistake can lead to problems later. When a problem arises, it takes a long time to improve. The treatment takes time, money.


No matter where you sit and work, do not sit in the same position for hours. Change position at most one hour. Take a walk around. Feel relaxed. Work comfortably. Keep rehearsing it until you can say it with conviction and confidence. Drink enough water. After drinking water, he also gets up to urinate.


Do you exercise When asked, many respond, I work all day, why exercise? . The illusion is that exercise is not necessary after work or physical activity. That is exercise. This is a misconception.


While working, not all parts of our body exercise in a balanced way. On the one hand, there is more pressure. There is stress. So while working, the body does not get the exercise it needs.


Exercise is a systematic action that moves the limbs of the body properly.


The root of the problem of nerve entrapment, bone loss, neck ache, back pain is our bad lifestyle. Our bad habit is sleeping, working. So the natural solution is a lifestyle change. You go to the hospital with the disease, but if you do not change your lifestyle, the process of going to the hospital will continue. That never ends.


So you have to pay attention to how to sleep, how to live, how to work. Don't bend over, don't bend, don't bend. But, you have to know how to bend down, how to bend.


1. Always sit with your back straight.


2. When sitting in a chair, car seat, or anywhere, the back of the hip and knee should fit in the chair.


3. Don't stay in one place for long. Take a break from time to time. Moving the body


4. When riding a car, do not lean too much, but sit straight in the seat. Do not allow the spine to contract even when riding a bike.


5. The position of kneeling, lying on the left side, sleeping on the crotch is not correct.


6. Sitting on your feet can also be fatal to your health.


Not only the lifestyle of today's people but also the nature of the disease has changed. These diseases did not exist in the past. Or the disease that our forefathers did not get is plaguing us.

Does being happy increase the body's resistance to disease?

Does being happy increase the body's resistance to disease?


We get more satisfaction from anything only when our body is in good condition. When the body is not well, no matter how sweet the food is, no matter how good the place is. This means that the body must be healthy for us to enjoy life to the fullest.



How is the body healthy?

For this, we must have strong immunity. There are many rules to strengthen the immune system. One of them is a simple rule, happiness.


Being happy both externally and internally can keep you healthy for a long time. It is very important to be happy to live a good life. When our body's ability to fight disease is reduced, various diseases occur.


So it is very important to be happy to boost the immune system. Many things around us control our happiness and stress. According to which our body reacts. To stay healthy and happy, it is very important to stay emotionally healthy. Even if mental health is not good, it harms the body. So it is important to take care of what is happening in our lives.


1. Health effects of positive thinking


Positive thinking is very important in life. When negative things are around, you also start to be negative. So try to keep the surrounding environment positive. Which helps to keep the body healthy and happy.


2. Happiness boosts the immune system


When you are happy, your body gets energy. So it is very important to be happy to improve the immune system.


3. Laugh a lot


Laughing out loud reduces stress and boosts the body's immune system. Laughter improves blood circulation in the body. As a result, the production of stress hormones in the body is reduced.


4. Exercise


Most people do not like to exercise. But when we exercise, our body produces a hormone called endorphins. Which improves our mood. And stress and anxiety are reduced. Swimming, cycling, and skipping are good for boosting immunity.


5. Sleep


Sleep calms the mind. A good night's sleep relaxes the body and relieves stress by forgetting the fatigue of the day. So you need enough sleep to improve your immune system.


6. Dance


Regular dancing makes you physically healthy. Besides, our body's immune system is strong. Dancing makes our body feel happy and reduces calories in the body.

Excessive food risk of serious disease, study says.

Excessive food risk of serious disease, study says.


Most people get sick because of their unhealthy eating habits. Not only can this cause stomach problems, but it can also be the cause of many other serious illnesses.


Recent research has shown that this is contrary to popular belief. Not only people who eat badly but also people who eat a lot of food are more likely to have problems including heart attack.






Various researches have described how unhealthy food increases heart insecurity. Eating too many increases the risk of heart attack for up to two hours after eating. So let's go into detail about what this research says.


What does the research say?


According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 610,000 people die of heart attacks in the United States each year. When investigators wanted to know the reason, they discovered some strange habits. One of the main habits of these is to eat too much food. This research shows that heavy food is the trigger for heart attack. This is especially harmful to people who are overweight or obese.


Eating too much increases the risk of heart attack


Eating too much food also causes problems related to cholesterol and high blood pressure. Which is most related to heart health. In fact, high levels of cholesterol can clog your arteries and cause circulatory problems. This circulatory problem is linked to high blood pressure and increases the risk of a heart attack. There are many other causes as well, due to which heavy eating can increase the chances of a heart attack. In fact, it takes energy to eat and digest food, which raises blood pressure along with the need for oxygen. It pumps more blood to the heart.


Similarly, high blood pressure obstructs the blood vessels in the arterial wall. Which causes a heart attack or stroke. Similarly, a high-fat diet impairs the function of the endothelium, the lining of the arteries. Researchers have found that the risk of heart attack increases almost fourfold within two hours of eating a lot of heavy foods. This problem is especially common in people with pre-existing heart disease. For example, a person with coronary artery disease or a previous heart attack is more likely to have this problem.


Nepalis have a balanced ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and other essential nutrients in their regular diet. But even eating such food can be a problem. Excessive consumption of fried foods with cream or butter can also easily lead to heart disease. So food should be eaten in a balanced way.

Alzheimer's disease: a complication

 Alzheimer's disease: a complication


The statistics are alarming, with an average of one person losing memory every three seconds in the world. Especially because of Alzheimer's. In the past, only the elderly had Alzheimer's disease. Today, even young people and adults are victims.


Stating that the growth rate of Alzheimer's disease has accelerated, it is estimated that the number of people suffering from this disease will increase by 70 million by 2030.


In Asia alone, 2.29 million people suffer from dementia, while in South Asia alone, 9.8 million people suffer from the disease, according to the World Alzheimer's Report.



What is Alzheimer's disease?


With Alzheimer's, a person's memory is impaired by drying out and gradually eroding brain cells. It is also called neurodegenerative disease as it is a brain-related problem. This disease causes constant damage to brain cells.


Why Alzheimer's?


Age also increases a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Similarly, 70 percent of Alzheimer's diseases are caused by heredity. Besides, high blood pressure, head injuries, obesity, etc. can also cause Alzheimer's disease, so in recent times, Alzheimer's disease has become a 'thread' for the world. Therefore, it is necessary to spread public awareness to raise public awareness about it.


These are the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.


Symptoms


- Forgetting (forgetting recent and immediate work done within 48 hours)


- Decreased ability to think


- Changes in behavior


- Difficulty speaking and swallowing


- Increased depression


- And, as the problem progresses, people will stop recognizing the people around them.


Stages of Alzheimer's disease


Generally, Alzheimer's disease has three stages.


Early-stage- In the early stage, the patient's friends, family, and other people may feel this problem. However, people with this disease can easily drive and do other things. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. And, forgetting where you put the word you know or the object you use, having a problem with the name, forgetting what you read, being unable to make any plans.


Moderate-stage Alzheimer's disease can last for years if it is in the middle stage. As the disease progresses, the person may need more care. Because people with Alzheimer's often get confused about the word and start behaving strangely.


Besides, the person with the problem may forget their past, be moody, forget their home and office address, have difficulty choosing clothes for the weather and special occasions, have difficulty urinating and stopping, sleep during the day instead of at night, and be restless at night and change behavior. Begins to show.


Final Stage - In this stage the person becomes unable to react to the environment around them, communicate with the people around them, and control their activities. As a result, as their memory diminishes, so does the person.


And, they need to be taken care of all the time, constantly reminded of the environment around them, taught to eat, swallow, and talk.


How to avoid


There is no definitive way to prevent Alzheimer's disease. Scientists are still researching it. However, the risk of Alzheimer's can be reduced by controlling the risk of heart disease, cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes. Besides, regular exercise from a young age can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.
