Here’s the reason to avoid restaurant food! July 04, 2015 09:36

Many like to eat food at restaurants without knowing its disadvantages. Research revealed that people who eat at restaurants or fast food centres end up consuming about 200 additional calories than eaten at home. "People who ate at full-service restaurants consumed significantly more cholesterol per day than people who ate at home," said researcher professor Ruopeng An from University of Illinois. "This extra intake of cholesterol, about 58 milligrams per day, accounts for 20 percent of the recommended upper bound of total cholesterol intake of 300 milligrams per day," he added. Fast-food and restaurant diners consumed about 10 grams more total fat, and 3.49 grams and 2.46 grams, respectively, more saturated fat than those who dined at home. "The American Heart Association recommends limiting the amount of saturated fats one eats to less than 5 to 6 percent of one's total daily calories. That means that if one needs about 2,000 calories a day, less than 120 calories, or 13 grams, should come from saturated fats," the researcher said.The study, reported in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, analysed eight years of nationally representative data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, collected from 18,098 adults living in the US.

Menstrual abnormalities worsen bone health July 04, 2015 09:32

A new study revealed that women sports persons with menstrual cycle abnormalities may be at greater risk of bone stress injuries and fractures. The researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital revealed that women with symptoms known as the "female athlete triad", a spectrum of symptoms that include low energy availability, menstrual cycle abnormalities, and low bone mineral density, are at an increased risk of bone loss."Any combination of these conditions can lead to premature bone loss in females," said lead study author and orthopaedic surgeon Elizabeth Matzkin from Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, US. The findings showed that both athletes and non athletes participating in any sports and exercise can develop symptoms of the female athlete triad. They also found that female athletes diagnosed with poor nutrition or low energy availability are two to four times more likely to sustain a sports-related injury. "Proper nutrition and energy balance are key to staying healthy in athletes of all ages. But maximizing bone health when you are young is paramount to your bone health later in life," Matzkin said. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS). By Lizitha

Actually, it would be incomplete when I address him as a person, because he is a ‘patakha’. A little boy named Parasuram from Aiza has said the dialogue with the perfect emotion and not less than Ram Charan. A few months back, the video of it went very viral. In fact, it even reached Ram Charan and made him to move from his place and search for the kid. Finally, Charan had found the kid and promised to support financially and educate him. Keeping up his word, the mega hero has now revealed about the kid through the social networking platform.Charan said that, “he had struggled a lot for convincing the boy to get educated and finally put him in the school, hope he studies well.”  “Baap jaisa hotha, beta vaisa hi hotha”, a popular hindi quote might be perfectly applied to Charan, who is following his father’s footsteps in terms of Social service.
