Avoid Stockpiles Calories, Reduce Soda Now

Bottle of soda contains a lot of calories is not healthy if consumed too often. In fact, in order to burn more calories than a soda bottle required to walk as much as two miles.

People tend to be less likely to indulge their passion drink soda is not healthy when the calorie content translated into physical activity, according to a study of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health School of Public Health.

"Most American people do not care much about how many calories they need in a day, so translating calories into easily understood if synchronized physical activity may be more meaningful to consumers than the amount of calories," said study author Sara Bleich, PhD, assistant professor of health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, as reported Menshealth, recently.

The number of calories in each 20-ounce soda in the bottle can be translated in a simple way. For example, to eliminate them by washing dishes or grocery shopping for 76 minutes, unicycling or cleaning gutters for 35 minutes, cut the wood for 29 minutes, shoveling or skiing for 25 minutes, boxing or jumping rope for 15 minutes.

Joints Disorders in the Elderly, How to tackle it?

When the elderly women, there will be many medical conditions that may strike. One of the possible health disorders are rheumatoid arthritis attack. Disease that attacks the joints and other organs can be prevented by using sunlight.

The new findings show a benefit for women who are routinely exposed to the morning sun healthy, to reduce and prevent the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. This beneficial effect, the researchers believe that ultraviolet B (UV-B) in sunlight may be beneficial to older women, as reported by Health24.

Joints Disorders

For the study, the researchers looked at approximately 235,000 participants took part in two stages the U.S. Nurses Health Study. The first phase started in 1976 with nurses aged 30 to 55 and continued until 2008. The second phase began in 1989 with nurses aged 25 to 42 and continued until 2009.

At the end of the two-phase, 1,314 of women had developed rheumatoid arthritis. Among women in the first stage of the study Nurses' Health, people with yangs often exposed to levels of UV-B are 21 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those with low exposure.

However, the relationship between UV-B exposure and the risk of rheumatoid arthritis is not visible evident among young women in the second stage. Women younger than women in the first phase and may be more aware about the dangers of too much sun exposure and avoid them.

"Our study adds to growing evidence that exposure to UV-B was associated with a reduced risk of rheumatoid arthritis," said Dr. Elizabeth Arkema, of the department of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Although this study is not a study of cause and effect, but from the results obtained, is expected to be a reference for other researchers to look at the benefits of sun exposure for prevention of rheumatoid arthritis.

Broccoli Can Prevent Arthritis

Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) has launched an innovative new project to investigate the benefits of broccoli in the fight against osteoarthritis. The results are good news for arthritis sufferers.

Early research in the laboratory of the UAE has found that a compound in broccoli called sulforaphane blocked the enzyme cause joint destruction in osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis itself is a form of arthritis is most common.

Broccoli Can Prevent Arthritis

With funding from Arthritis Research UK and the Diet and Health Research Industry Club (DRINC), research projects explore how sulforaphane may act to slow or prevent the progression of osteoarthritis. Similarly, as quoted Health24

Sulforaphane is a bioactive compound found in vegetables, especially broccoli. Eating broccoli enhance sulforaphane in the blood, but scientists do not yet know whether the amount of sulforaphane into the joint enough to make it effective in preventing osteoarthritis. This is the one where the UAE team hope to find it, because osteoarthritis is a major cause of disability cases.

There is no effective treatment

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease which gradually destroys the cartilage in the joints, especially the hands, feet, spine, hips, and knees elderly. To date, no effective treatment other than pain or recovery of joint replacement surgery.

Prof Ian Clark, of UEA's School of Biological Sciences, who led the study, said: "The UK has the aging population and developing new strategies for age-related diseases. Combating diseases such as osteoarthritis is vital to improving the quality of life of patients, but also to reduce the burden on the local economy. "

As part of a three-year project, the UEA team will also investigate the effects of other compounds in foods associated with osteoarthritis, including diallyl disulphide were found to be quite high in garlic.

Broccoli has previously been associated with reduced cancer risk, but this is the first time conducted a study of the effects of broccoli on joint health.

Retina Diabetes Often Occurs in Developing Countries

Loss of the ability to see would not expect anyone because it will certainly change the quality of one's life drastically. Along with the development and prosperity that occurred in Asian countries, also participated in a lifestyle change.

The increasing age of a person, the more people who suffer from diabetic retinopathy (a complication of diabetes on the retina), glaucoma and disorders of the central retina (macula), which can lead to impaired vision and even blindness.

Dr Ian Yeo Yew San, ophthalmologists who served as a consultant at the Singapore National Eye Centre is incorporated in a healthy tourist services, FlyFreeForHealth, said, "Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness in the retina of the most common in grown, especially those working in developing countries."

As many as 80 percent of cases of blindness in humans should be avoided. Often times it is caused by complications of diabetes and other medical conditions. The longer affected by diabetes, the higher the possibility of getting damaged eye blood vessels.

"About 60 percent of patients had diabetes for 50 years or more will be damaged blood vessels in the eye, and one percent are at risk of blindness," Dr. Yeo.

According to the National Health Survey in 2004 in Singapore, 8.9 percent of men and 7.6 percent of women affected by diabetes. Rate of diabetes in India is the highest number, ie 15.3 percent, Malaysia 11 percent, and China 7.1 percent. These statistics would be a guide for other Asian countries.

"Successful Treatment for diabetic retinopathy depends on early detection and the type of treatment," concludes Dr Yeo.

Do not Let Baby Sitting Too Long

Do not leave infants less than one month in a sitting position for a long time. The reason, it can make them face the risk of increased infant mortality conditions suddenly.

Such a warning was conveyed Dr Arore Cote, one of the researchers from the McGill University Health Center in Montreal, Canada. Together with his colleagues, he reported that the mortality among infants in a sitting position accounted for three percent of all infant deaths they examined as part of his studies.

"Based on other studies that examined the level of oxygen in the blood of infants in a sitting position, to be compared with infants who were in bed, I would say an hour despite being the maximum time," said Cote told Reuters Health.

Cote's group conducted for 10 years, until December 2000, of all sudden deaths are unexplained between birth and age 1 year terhadi in the Province of Quebec, Canada.

Overall, 10 infants in the unexplained deaths and seven unexplained death group died while sitting in a car seat or other seating. When the researchers took into account age received 9.4 percent of the infants who died at less than 1 month of age were in a sitting position meningggal armpit. In contrast, only 2.4 percent of the infants at the age of 1 month were dying in a sitting position.

Quick Finesse Worms Kids Avoid

There are a number of worms that can live in the human body. This is usually caused from contaminated food.
"This worm is a type of worm thread which usually enters the body through food contaminated eggs, which then hatch in the intestine and develop into grown in 15 to 28 days," said Dr. Mirriam Stoppard in his book "Family Health Guide".

Female worm then spawn more around the anus, which causes itching, especially at night. If the child scratching yourself, eggs can be easily embedded in the fingers and under the fingernails, as well as put his hand to his mouth, the child start the whole cycle again worms.

"Worms thread length from two to 13 millimeters are not dangerous, but can cause unpleasant symptoms. Worm thread is very easy to infect and all family members should be treated simultaneously. Way to prevent it by making sure fruits and vegetables are going to be consumed were washed and for vegetables cooked enough even half done, "said Stoppard.

Here are the symptoms of worms:
- Itching around the anus, usually at night.

- White thread-like worms in dirt.

- Can not sleep due to severe itching.

Should consult a doctor? "See your doctor as soon as possible if you find worms in the dirt in white looks small, like yarn or if you just go to areas that are often affected by a worm or if your child seems unwell," he concluded.

Milk, yogurt, and other dairy products

Milk and other dairy products are a rich source of protein, potassium, calcium, and vitamin D. All the essential nutrients is a key resource for the development of the neuromuscular system, neurotransmitters, enzymes, and brain tissue. Children and adolescents in the age group who are in the growth stage requires these nutrients.

All kinds of fruit berries

You may refer to the strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and blackberries as Brainberries because they provide most of the essential nutrients for the brain. Berry fruits are rich sources of antioxidants and vitamin C which helps in reducing oxidative stress. Seeds from fruits berries are also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, one of the most important elements of the outer membrane of brain cells.

Eggs and beans

Choline, an important element for the development of memory stem cells can be found in eggs. Nuts also have a proportion of these substances will. Dietary Choline may increase the production of stem cells in the brain memory. It also minimizes fatigue and improving reaction. Nuts and seeds are a rich source of vitamin D.


Vitamin B and glucose found in wheat grains, such as oatmeal and brown rice is a healthy brain food for your child. Our body needs a regular supply of glucose supplied by grains. Vitamin B improves blood flow that our nervous system is one of the main factors in keeping all our organs are active, including the brain.


Fish with high levels of fats such as salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA and EPA. It is important for brain development. Research shows that people who eat fish have a sharper memory than others.

Some other very good food for the brain is colored vegetables, such as tomatoes, spinach, carrots, green beans, pomegranate, and more. Include foods mentioned above in your children's diet and increase the memory of a growing child.

Noise Disturb Baby Brain Growth

Do not underestimate the quality of the child's bedroom. Therefore, parents should keep the baby's sleeping comfort that your body and brain grow and develop optimally.

During the baby sleep, blood flow to the brain also increased during this stage of sleep Rapid Eye Movement (REM) phase of sleep or active.

It plays an important role in the psychological health of the baby and infant brain activity, thus allowing optimal growth and development of the baby's brain.

To support the work processes of growth and development of the baby's brain, it's good as long as the baby does not get the sleep disorder, both disorders caused by leaking diapers comfort or due to a noisy environment sound. Because the noises can interfere with infant brain growth.

"The environment is too noisy on some of the research will lead to a focus thought disorder. Consequently, there should be no sound over 80 decibels as it may interfere with brain growth in the future," said dr. Rosalina Roeslani

How to Overcome Stomach Bloating in baby

Newborns have a health condition is not good. Babies often suffer from constipation, flatulence or dysentery because their digestive systems are still in infancy.

Risk Pregnancy Above 40 Years

Pregnant at age 40 years and over fairly vulnerable. However, if you are still determined to remain pregnant at that age, you have to plan health programs mature.

More recently, studies have shown that by maintaining a stable weight before pregnancy, to minimize the risks that could endanger the health of both the mother and the baby later.

"If you are in a healthy state, with more than 40 years of age and not obesity, the risk of pregnancy complications can be reduced. In a sense, the mother with a balanced weight have an increased risk of pregnancy complications are smaller than maternal obesity, "said researcher John R Barton, MD, who served as director of Maternal-Fetal at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington, Ky., USA, as reported of

John compared between pregnant women who are obese and who do not have a weight problem in the study did. Respondents included most women around 20 years old and the other aged 40 years and over. John mentioned, women who are obese at a young age no longer have health issues than those who were too old, but with an ideal body weight. The invention described John the annual meeting the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in San Diego or associations of obstetrics and gynecology in San Diego, United States.

The birth rate for women aged younger today is experiencing a decline. In contrast, the number of deliveries made women aged over 40 years has increased. From 2008 to 2009, the average birth rate of women aged 40-44 years performed experiencing increasing by 3 percent to 10.1 births of 1,000 women. This figure is the highest number of reports ever since 1967, if you see the old lady. John looked at data collected from 53,000 women.

They are included in the educational program and the risk of pregnancy dikordibasi by Alere, a diagnostics and health management, between July 2006 and August 2011. Of the total, 1,231 of which is aged 40 years or older. With 228 of them in the obese category. The body mass index classified as overweight is 22 to 29.9, while the figure of 30 or greater, including obesity.

The women were lined respondents experiencing their first pregnancy and just expecting a baby alone. Women with a history of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are not included in this study. John then divided into four grup.Yakni young women aged 20-29 years with a body mass index of 35, women older age with the disease of obesity around the age of 41 years with a body mass index of 35, young women aged 20-29 years were not obese with an index body mass 23, and the last  women with a range of 41 years and a body mass index approaching 24.

John discovered the fact that, in women aged 40 years and over who have a history of obesity, most would have the baby before age 37 weeks. Well, this birth too early it will increase the health risks to the baby. Women aged over 40 years who are obese are also three times more likely to develop gestational diabetes, the high blood sugar may increase during pregnancy. More than 21 percent of women who are no longer young and suffer from obesity, have a disease problem. While only 7 percent of women of the same age but with stable weight, who develop gestational diabetes.

Nearly 9 percent of obese young women, suffer from the disease during pregnancy. While those who are younger and healthy weight, only 4 percent were exposed to gestational diabetes. Obese women both came from a young age and older, the risk of preeclampsia.

In order for the Small Diligent Toothbrush

Familiarize children diligently brushing is not easy. However, that does not mean the mothers give up. In order for children diligently brush your teeth, parents should encourage children brush their teeth in a fun way.

Toddlers can see that the parents comfortable with the activities of dental care and dental care room used to smell, to become acquainted with the operator, and the sound of dental equipment that become more cooperative when taken care of the teeth themselves.

Alert, Constipation Causes Disease Laparospic

appendicitis is no stranger heard. Many people have the disease detected starting from abdominal pain to constipation. So, whether the cause is indicated as a person eating too much chili? Find out more caused by the following review.

As the name implies, the appendix is ​​part bersaluran short bowel and appendix. His position was sticking out of the meeting intestine and colon. In medical language, called the appendix. The function of the appendix as an immunologic organ that actively participates in the production of immunoglobulin (an immune system).

Appendicitis occurs when the appendix is ​​blocked partially or completely, and bacteria that accumulate in them cause infection.
Alert, Constipation Causes Disease Laparospic

There are many factors that cause blockage of the appendix, including a pile of feces or stool hard, enlargement of lymphoid tissues, intestinal worms, parasites, foreign bodies in the body, 'primary cancer' and stricture.

Eating chili with seeds or guava often with undigested seeds in the feces and slipped into the channel as foreign appendix. Similarly, the so-called hardening of stools or constipation for a long time which could potentially leave the appendices tucked into the channel. In the end, the part that is tucked into a nest and a breeding ground for bacteria which can cause infection which then causes inflammation of the appendix.

In addition, a person who has the disease worms (worms), if the worms are breeding in the large intestine strayed into the appendix, is also a potential cause of appendicitis.

"When there is a blockage, the appendix gets inflamed and swollen that need to be removed surgically. Apandektomi an emergency surgery commonly performed in children. However, appendicitis is rare in infants younger than 12 months," said Dr. Mirriam Stoppard, in his book "Family Health Guide".

Even though it looks scary, you do not need to worry because of appendicitis is not a dangerous disease if treated as soon as possible.

"If diagnosed early, appendicitis is not a serious problem. However, if treatment is delayed for any reason, an accumulation of pus in the appendix can lead to clogged part broke. Condition known as peritonitis and require immediate treatment," said Stoppard .

To that end, recognizing the symptoms of appendicitis preventive measures that need to be done. These symptoms of appendicitis to watch and addressed:

- Abdominal pain, starting from the area around the belly button, then moving down to the lower right abdomen.

- Temperature slightly elevated, rarely exceed 38 degrees Celsius.

- Appetite lost.

- Vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation.

"If you suspect child stricken with appendicitis, see a doctor as soon as possible. If the appendix ruptured, any delay can cause the infection to spread to all parts of the intestine," urge Stoppard.

Post-surgery, continued Stoppard, give support to the child to rest and eat normally when they get home from the hospital. Children should recover after two or three weeks after surgery.

Because when you exercise, children can be trained to understand commands, rules, cooperation, seek solutions, and achieve goals. Overall, the exercise function in the development of mind and body beloved baby.

How Child Brain Stimulation in Gynecology

Since the fetus, the brain is already starting to grow and develop. Stimulation was already needs to be given. Confused how?

Stimulate a baby's brain can be done since the age of 18-20 weeks of gestation. This is because at these times occur progress fetal nerve cells are strong, then do not delay Moms stimulation.

How Child Brain Stimulation in Gynecology

"Stimulation of the fetus in the womb carried by getting talked, talked, sang songs, recited prayers, religious songs, stroking the mother's abdomen. Can also play the song on the radio with cassette taped to the mother's womb," said Dr.. Soedjatmiko, SpA (K), MSI, in a seminar titled Nutrition and Stimulation for Children Intelligence JIExpo, Jakarta, a few days ago.

Furthermore, Soedjatmiko suggested that mothers strive for a given stimulation brings positive energy, do not comment on things less well, avoid fast anxious because later will affect the baby after birth.

"Stimulation should be done every day, every moment she can interact with her ​​fetus. Example, while bathing, cooking, washing clothes, gardening, reading newspapers or magazines, watching television, in the office, on the market, anywhere to do stimulation. Moms too should not be stressed because the fetus can be felt and not good for the growth and development of the brain, "he concluded.

Turn Right & Left Brain Functions Make Smart Kids

Left and right brain have different functions. Watch this to find out how to optimize brain function for both intelligence.

The left brain primarily controls the activity of which is organized, sequential, detailed, systematic and mathematically. The right brain controls the activity of which is divergent thinking (extended), imagination, ideas, kretivitas, emotion, music, spirituality, intuition, abstract, free, and simultaneous.

In addition to nutrition, stimulation plays an important role in maximizing the intelligence of children.

Stimulation is needed for the relationship between cells of the brain nerves (synapse) can develop.

"It is important to remember that the synapse will disappear spontaneously when not in use. Having said that, if we want a child with multiple intelligences to do stimulation (stimulation) early on in the womb until the age of three years continuously, every day, full of love, full excitement varied and regular, as well as stimulating the left and right brain together, "said Dr. Soedjatmiko, SpA (K), MSI, in a seminar entitled Nutrition and Stimulation for Children Intelligence JIExpo, Jakarta, recently.

There are many things that parents can do to provide stimulation in children, ranging from giving a smile, a kiss, play, to give a special massage to stimulate motor nerves, improve sleep patterns, aid digestion, and muscles healthy baby.

"As long as no harm, avoid banning children younger than three years of doing something. When children are too often banned by the parents, the child's creativity can not develop properly," he concluded.

Child Brain Growing to 3 Years

Golden age of children's brain development begins in the womb until the child reaches the age of three years. What are occurring in the child's brain at that time?

Golden years is a period in which the brain has amazing growth and development. At this time, the brain nerve cells growing toddlers.

"The growth of brain cells branching fastest since six months of pregnancy until the child is three years old. Fetal brain cells have grown and evolved since the first month in the womb, then divide rapidly reach 100 billion cells while developing appropriate places and functions respectively, "said Dr. Soedjatmiko, SpA (K), MSI, in a seminar entitled Nutrition and Stimulation for Children Intelligence JIExpo, Jakarta, recently.

Child Brain Growing to 3 Years

Soedjatmiko explained, since six months of pregnancy, these cells form many synapses (the relationship between brain cells) to form various functional circuits (circuits) are complex, like a series of advanced computer microchips.

"The quality of the brain's circuitry depends on the quality of nutrition and stimulation (stimulation) were obtained from the womb to the age of the first three years. Process was going very fast and complex until the age of three years, after which it slowed at school age and adolescence," he explained.

Therefore, nutrition and early stimulation is very important, especially in the womb until the age of three years.

"The early, frequent, varied, and regular stimulation received infant-toddler (since pregnant six months to three years old), the more sophisticated and robust relationship between synaptic brain cells right and left," he concluded.

Set Balanced Nutrition for Pregnant Women

Fulfillment proper nutrition during pregnancy may affect the baby's development. Therefore, pregnant women should be taking some of this nutrient.

Here is presented dr. Lany Goddess Wijono, M. Nutrition, SpGK Premier Jatinegara Hospital.

Folic Acid

Useful in cell division, prevent anemia and reduce the risk of neural tube deffects (NTD). Needs recommended folic acid is 600 mcg per day.

Typically, pregnant women will receive 400 mcg of folic acid supplementation per day.

Set Balanced Nutrition for Pregnant Women

Then, other sources of folic acid can be obtained from foods such as chicken and beef liver, eggs, asparagus, broccoli, beans, kale, and orange.

If pregnant women folic acid deficiency is causing the closure of the spinal marrow or cleft spine (spina bifida), including congenital defect that occurs in the spinal canal and backbone result of not being closed before birth (myelomeningocele).


Function for the formation of red blood cells, red blood cells forming materials, and optimize muscle function. Generally, pregnant women need iron as much as 27 mg per day. However, the second and third trimester, pregnant women are usually given an iron supplement of 30 mg per day. For pregnant women with iron deficiency will cause anemia.


Its function is to prevent premature infants, congenital abnormalities, abnormal brain development that, to prevent fetal organ growth disorders, so that normal brain development, immune fetus, fetal growth process.

Iron needs this as much as 11-13 mg per day. In pregnancy, zinc plays a role in the formation of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and Nucleic Acid Dioksiribosa (DNA) fetuses.


Required for the growth of fetal bones and teeth, as well as to protect pregnant women from osteoporosis. Pregnant women need calcium between 1000 to 1300 mg. Supplementation in pregnant women is needed if not consume milk or milk products.

Vitamin D

Useful for bone disorders and help prevent the absorption of calcium. Pregnant women must take vitamin D per day total of 5 mcg (200 IU). When deficiency of vitamin D during pregnancy, it can cause tooth enamel developmental disorders and calcium deficiencies in the fetus.
