Good health habits can allow you to avoid illness and improve your quality of life. The following steps will help you feel better and live better.

Get regular exercise and control your weight.Don't smoke.Do NOT drink a lot of alcohol. Avoid alcohol completely if you have a history of alcoholism.Use the medicines your health care provider gives you as directed.Eat a balanced and healthy diet.Take care of your teeth.Manage high blood pressure.Follow good safety practices.


Exercise is a key factor in staying healthy. Exercise strengthens the bones, heart, and lungs, tones muscles, improves vitality, relieves depression, and helps you sleep better.

Talk to your provider before starting an exercise program if you have health conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, or diabetes. This can help ensure that your exercise is safe and that you get the most of out of it.


Cigarette smoking is the main preventable cause of death in the United States. One out of every 5 deaths each year is either directly or indirectly caused by smoking.

Secondhand cigarette smoke exposure can cause lung cancer in nonsmokers. Secondhand smoke is also linked to heart disease.

It is never too late to quit smoking. Talk to your provider or nurse about medicines and programs that can help you quit.


Drinking alcohol changes many brain functions. Emotions, thinking, and judgment are first to be affected. Continued drinking will affect motor control, causing slurred speech, slower reactions, and poor balance. Having a higher amount of body fat and drinking on an empty stomach will speed up the effects of alcohol.

Alcoholism can lead to diseases including:

Diseases of the liver and pancreasCancer and other diseases of the esophagus and digestive tractHeart muscle damageBrain damageDo NOT drink alcohol when you are pregnant. Alcohol can cause serious harm to the unborn baby and lead to fetal alcohol syndrome.

Parents should talk to their children about the dangerous effects of alcohol. Talk to your provider if you or someone close to you has a problem with alcohol. Many people whose lives have been affected by alcohol get benefit from taking part in an alcohol support group.


Drugs and medicines affect people in different ways. Always tell your provider about the all drugs you are taking. This includes over-the-counter medicines and vitamins.

Drug interactions can be dangerous.Older people need to be very careful about interactions when they are taking many medicines.All of your providers should know all the medicines you are taking. Carry the list with you when you go for checkups and treatments.Avoid drinking alcohol while taking medicines. This can cause serious problems. The combination of alcohol and tranquilizers or painkillers can be deadly.

Pregnant women should not take any drug or medicine without talking to the provider. This includes over-the-counter medicines. The unborn baby is even more sensitive to the harm from drugs in the first 3 months. Tell your provider if you have been taking any drugs just before becoming pregnant.

Always take medicines as prescribed. Taking any drug in a way other than prescribed or taking too much can cause serious health problems. It is considered drug abuse. Abuse and addiction are not just associated with illegal "street" drugs.

Legal drugs such as laxatives, painkillers, nasal sprays, diet pills, and cough medicines can also be misused.

Addiction is defined as continuing to use a substance even though you are experiencing problems related to the use. Simply needing a drug (like a painkiller or antidepressant) and taking it as prescribed is not addiction.


Stress is normal. It can be a great motivator and help in some cases. But too much stress can cause health problems such as trouble sleeping, stomach upset, anxiety, and mood changes.

Learn to recognize the things most likely to cause stress in your life.You may not be able to avoid all stress but knowing the source can help you feel in control.The more control you feel you have over your life, the less damaging the stress in your life will be.


Obesity is a serious health concern. Excess body fat can overwork the heart, bones, and muscles. It can also increase your risk for developing high blood pressure, stroke, varicose veins, breast cancer, and gallbladder disease.

Obesity can be caused by eating too much and eating unhealthy foods. Lack of exercise also plays a part. Family history may be a risk for some people as well.


Having a balanced diet is important to being in good health.

Choose foods that are low in saturated and trans fat, and low in cholesterol.Limit your intake of sugar, salt (sodium), and alcohol.Eat more fiber, which can be found in fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grain products, and nuts.


Good dental care can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. It is important for children to begin good dental habits when they are young. For proper dental hygiene:

Brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once daily.Use fluoride toothpaste.Get regular dental checkups.Limit sugar intake.Use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Replace your toothbrush when bristles get bent.Have your dentist show you the proper ways to brush and floss

Health / Healthy living facts
« about: a month ago »

This article is designed to give tips to readers about how they can improve or augment actions in their life to have a healthy lifestyle; it is not meant to be all inclusive but will include major components that are considered to be parts of a lifestyle that lead to good health. In addition to the tips about what people should do for healthy living, the article will mention some of the tips about avoiding actions (the don'ts) that lead to unhealthy living.

"Healthy living" to most people means both physical and mental health are in balance or functioning well together in a person. In many instances, physical and mental health are closely linked, so that a change (good or bad) in one directly affects the other. Consequently, some of the tips will include suggestions for emotional and mental "healthy living."

All humans have to eat food for growth and maintenance of a healthy body, but we humans have different requirements as infants, children (kids), teenagers, young adults, adults, and seniors. For example, infants may require feeding every four hours until they gradually age and begin to take in more solid foods. Eventually they develop into the more normal pattern of eating three times per day as young kids. However, as most parents know, kids, teenagers, and young adults often snack between meals. Snacking is often not limited to these age groups because adults and seniors often do the same.


Eat three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner); it is important to remember that dinner does not have to be the largest meal.

The bulk of food consumption should consist of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk products.Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts (with emphasis on beans and nuts).

Choose foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars; look at the labels because the first listed items on the labels comprise the highest concentrations of ingredients.

Control portion sizes; eat the smallest portion that can satisfy hunger and then stop eating.Snacks are OK in moderation and should consist of items like fruit, whole grains, or nuts to satisfy hunger and not cause excessive weight gain.

Avoid sodas and sugar-enhanced drinks because of the excessive calories in the sodas and sugardrinks; diet drinks may not be a good choice as they make some people hungrier and increase food consumption.

Avoid eating a large meal before sleeping to decrease gastroesophageal reflux and weight gain.If a person is angry or depressed, eating will not solve these situations and may make the underlying problems worse.

Avoid rewarding children with sugary snacks; such a pattern may become a lifelong habit for people.

Avoid heavy meals in the summer months, especially during hot days.A vegetarian lifestyle has been promoted for a healthy lifestyle and weight loss; vegetarians should check with their physicians to be sure they are getting enough vitamins, minerals, and iron in their food.Cooking foods (above 165 F) destroys most harmful bacteria and other pathogens; if you choose to eat uncooked foods like fruits or vegetables, they should be thoroughly washed with running treated (safe to drink) tap water right before eating.

Avoid eating raw or undercooked meats of any type.

Tips for special situations:

People with diabetes should use the above tips and monitor their glucose levels as directed; try to keep the daily blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible.People with unusual work schedules (night shifts, college students, military) should try to adhere to a breakfast, lunch, and dinner routine with minimal snacking.People who prepare food should avoid using grease or frying foods in grease.People trying to lose weight (body fat) should avoid all fatty and sugary foods and eat mainly vegetables, fruits, and nuts and markedly reduce his/her intake of meat and dairy products.Seek medical advice early if you cannot control your weight, food intake, or if you have diabetes and cannot control your blood glucose levels.


Safety / 7 Safety Rules for Kids at Home Alone

7 Safety Rules for Kids at Home Alone

If your child is ready to stay home alone, here are some rules to keep your child safe.

When is your child old enough to stay home alone after school? It totally depends. Only you can properly assess your child's maturity, judgment, and comfort level. Your city or state may have laws governing the age at which kids can legally be left alone (often it's 11 and up), so be sure to check into that before you make a decision.

Ask your child how he feels about staying home alone. If he seems worried or afraid, he may not be ready. But if he's keen to try, this experience can foster his sense of independence. If you determine that he is responsible enough to care for himself alone after school, brief him on these rules:

Have an emergency plan.
 Inspect your home thoroughly for any safety risks. Make sure that all of the smoke detectors are functioning properly. Even if you believe it to be common sense, review the sound of the alarm — and what to do if it goes off — with your child. She should get out of the house immediately and then call 911 from a neighbor's house. Review the emergency exits by drawing a map that outlines the best pathways to safety from each room in the house. Post relevant phone numbers (911, a close neighbor, your cell and work numbers) prominently.

Always check in.
Make it a rule that your child calls a parent (or other adult that you designate), or leaves you a message, as soon as he gets home. This can be the first step in a daily routine that includes homework, a snack, and some downtime.

Make the phone (almost) off-limits.
Your child shouldn't answer the phone for just anyone, so set up guidelines. If you have a land line with caller ID, tell her not to answer the phone if she doesn't recognize the name or number. If you don't have caller ID, tell him that she should let every call go to voice mail. If you child is old enough to have her own cell phone, use the same guidelines.

Don't leave the house.
Your child should not leave the house unattended unless he's cleared it with you first or there is an emergency such as a fire. Make sure that he is aware of the risks of leaving home.

Take the same way home.
Have her take the same route to and from school every day. If your child walks, review each street that she uses. If she takes a school bus, make sure that she takes it every day, even if she is offered a ride from a friend. Knowing her route allows you to predict how long it will take her to arrive home, and to trace her steps if there is ever a problem.

Keep him busy.
 Although he needs some downtime to rest and rejuvenate, your child will be less likely to get into­ trouble if he's occupied with homework, music practice, and chores.

Practice first aid.
Keep a first aid kit handy and review it with your child. Help her distinguish between a true emergency and a minor one that she can handle herself.


Health / Five Health Tips To Embrace After 40
« about: a month ago »
We live in a stressful society. There are so many things that are stressing people out. As one gets older it seems everything gets more complicated and there is a race to solve all of life’s problems in the shortest time possible.

But in this race, it is necessary to maintain good health so that one enjoys a long and healthy life.

Here are habits to embrace after 40 to ensure that one does not collapse, jeopardize or shorten his life.

Sleep more

As one gets older the pressure of everyday life increases. It is important to change the sleep pattern to at least 7 hours a day to enhance the immune system and recover from exercise and activity had during the course of the day.

Drink more water

Staying hydrated is another sure way of maintaining good health. Thanks to a lot of phone apps that you can install on your phone to enable you to stay hydrated no matter how busy you are during the day. Drink water often, substitute water for alcohol or that favourite carbonated beverage for a healthier life.

Go for regular check-ups

With age comes a lot of diseases that the body may not easily combat as it’s ageing. It is important to consult the doctor and go for regular check-ups. It is important to report the little things to the doctor. Check blood pressure, sugar levels, cancer tests and any changes that may occur in the body.

Control your weight
Controlling weight through exercise is a way to improve health and ensure an active life. Physical exercise also helps the body in metabolism and burns extra calories.

Eat healthy food

In addition to other safe health habits to adopt at 40, eating healthy is very important. Eat more proteins, nuts, fruits and vegetables. These foods help to build muscles, slows the ageing process and help metabolism.


Safety / Basic Safety Rules
« about: a month ago »
The Basics of Safety

Through several years of investigating accidents and research in the field of accident reconstruction, leaders in the field of occupational accident prevention have concluded that there are specific reasons why accidents occur. They found that worker safety is dependent on worker behavior and human factors. They developed ten safety rules and, while many of you may have heard them before, they are worth repeating:

STAY ALERT - and stay alive. The more awake a worker is, the less likely he or she is to get hurt. If you are unsure how to operate equipment or perform a task, ask your supervisor. Don't guess and muddle through. Make sure you know in advance the correct, safe way to do it.

WEAR THE RIGHT CLOTHES - work clothes should fit properly. Anything that can catch in machinery or trip you up is hazardous. Wear protective clothing and equipment as required.

USE THE RIGHT TOOLS - if you need a hammer, get a hammer. It may be handier to use a pair of pliers, wrench or screw driver, but you are more likely to get injured.

LEARN HOW TO LIFT - Lifting takes more than muscle; it is an art. Don't try to show how strong you are; you may end up in a hospital. Get help to handle anything that is too heavy or cumbersome for you.

DON'T BE A PRANKSTER - practical jokes and horseplay can be dangerous, especially around heavy machinery. If you feel the urge to play, resist it until after work.

BE TIDY - Good housekeeping reduces hazards in the workplace or your home. Always put away tools when they are not in use. Keep the floors clean, pick up scraps and wipe up spills. A slip or trip can be fatal.

REPORTING IS IMPORTANT - Never fail to report accidents, defective equipment and or unsafe conditions.

GET FIRST AID IMMEDIATELY - if you're hurt - even if it seems minor. Neglect of an injury may lead to serious infection, weeks of lost time, and possibly permanent injury.

BACK YOUR SAFETY PROGRAM - If you have an idea you believe will reduce accidents, tell your supervisor about it. Set an example by obeying safety rules. Cooperate with your safety committee.

NEVER TAKE A CHANCE - Next to sheer carelessness, short cuts are probably the biggest killer of all. To save a minute or two, you may lose a lifetime. Whatever you are doing, if you are not doing it safely, you are not doing it right!

Health / Speculation on cancer cure
« about: a month ago »
A long time ago, while doing a research and surfing the Internet, I came across a piece of information, a write up pricisely on health and Cancer related though I can't really recall the site as it's been a long time now. This is what it says , "dry fast aids in killing cancer cells in the system as organisms living in the body feeds on them as there are no sources of food intake to survive them so they resort to eating up the cancer cells in the body there by reducing the risk of being a cancer patient" and I ask how true can this be. Any doctor here can help out for a clear understanding and education.

Cancer gives most people no symptoms or signs that exclusively indicate the disease. Unfortunately, every complaint or symptom of cancer can be explained by a harmless condition as well. If certain symptoms occur or persist, however, a doctor should be seen for further evaluation. Some common symptoms that may occur with cancer are as follows:

Persistent cough or blood-tinged saliva
These symptoms usually represent simple infections such as bronchitis or sinusitis.
They could be symptoms of cancer of the lung, head, and neck. Anyone with a nagging cough that lasts more than a month or with blood in the mucus that is coughed up should see a doctor.

A change in bowel habits
Most changes in bowel habits are related to your diet and fluid intake.
Doctors sometimes see pencil-thin stools with colon cancer.
Occasionally, cancer exhibits continuous diarrhea.
Some people with cancer feel as if they need to have a bowel movement and still feel that way after they have had a bowel movement. If any of these abnormal bowel complaints last more than a few days, they require evaluation.
A significant change in bowel habits that cannot be easily explained by dietary changes needs to be evaluated.

Blood in the stool
A doctor always should investigate blood in your stool.
Hemorrhoids frequently cause rectal bleeding, but because hemorrhoids are so common, they may exist with cancer. Therefore, even when you have hemorrhoids, you should have a doctor examine your entire intestinal tract when you have blood in your bowel movements.
With some individuals, X-ray studies may be enough to clarify a diagnosis.
Colonoscopy is usually recommended. Routine colonoscopy, even without symptoms, is recommended once you are 50 years old.
Sometimes when the source of bleeding is entirely clear (for example, recurrent ulcers), these studies may not be needed.

Unexplained anemia (low blood count)
Anemia is a condition in which people have fewer than the expected number of red blood cells in their blood. Anemia should always be investigated.
There are many kinds of anemia, but blood loss almost always causes iron deficiency anemia. Unless there is an obvious source of ongoing blood loss, this anemia needs to be explained.
Many cancers can cause anemia, but bowel cancers most commonly cause iron deficiency anemia. Evaluation should include endoscopy or X-ray studies of your upper and lower intestinal tracts.

Breast lump or breast discharge
Most breast lumps are noncancerous tumors such as fibroadenomas or cysts. But all breast lumps need to be thoroughly investigated.
A negative mammogram result is not usually sufficient to evaluate a breast lump. Your doctor needs to determine the appropriate X-ray study which might include an MRI or an ultrasound of the breast.
Generally, diagnosis requires a needle aspiration or biopsy (a small tissue sample).
Discharge from a breast is common, but some forms of discharge may be signs of cancer. If discharge is bloody or from only one nipple, further evaluation is recommended.
Women are advised to conduct monthly breast self-examinations.

Lumps in the testicles
Most men (90%) with cancer of the testicle have a painless or uncomfortable lump on a testicle.
Some men have an enlarged testicle.
Other conditions, such as infections and swollen veins, can also cause changes in your testicles, but any lump should be evaluated.
Men are advised to conduct monthly testicular self-examinations.

A change in urination
Urinary symptoms can include frequent urination, small amounts of urine, and slow urine flow or a general change in bladder function.
These symptoms can be caused by urinary infections (usually in women) or, in men, by an enlarged prostate gland.

Most men will suffer from harmless prostate enlargement as they age and will often have these urinary symptoms.

These symptoms may also signal prostate cancer.

Men experiencing urinary symptoms need further investigation, possibly including blood tests and a digital rectal exam. The PSA blood test, its indications, and interpretation of results should be discussed with your health care provider.

If cancer is suspected, a biopsy of the prostate may be needed.

Cancer of the bladder and pelvic tumors can also cause irritation of the bladder and urinary frequency.

Safety / Re: Safety tips
« about: a month ago »
that is one of the major reasons for forum brother. platforms are not just for a sole purpose but for divergent and broad enlightenment which would be of great benefit for her members all round aspect cutting across all fields and works of life. as we all know, information is power.

With more than 15.5 million cancer survivors alive today in the US, chances are that you or someone you know has faced cancer.

Each June, cancer survivors celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day, sponsored by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. The event, which includes hundreds of life-affirming gatherings across the US, is a time to celebrate life – and if you're a cancer survivor, it’s also a good time to reflect on what you could be doing to be even healthier.

Whether you're still in treatment or long since finished, be sure you’re doing everything you can to safeguard your health.

1. Achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
Avoid weight gain during cancer treatment, whether you are at a healthy weight or overweight.
If you’re overweight or obese, talk to your health care provider about safely losing weight after you recover from treatment.

2. Be physically active.
Studies show that exercise is generally safe during cancer treatment, and can improve many aspects of health, including muscle strength, balance, fatigue, and depression. Talk to your health care provider about what would work best for you.
Physical activity after diagnosis is linked to living longer and a reduced risk of the cancer returning among people living with breast, colorectal, prostate, and ovarian cancer – among other forms of the disease.

3. Eat a healthy diet, with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
The most health benefits are associated with a diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, and fish, and low in refined grains, red meat (beef, pork, and lamb) and processed meat (hot dogs, ham, bacon, sausage, and some deli meats), desserts, high-fat dairy products, and fried foods.
So far, studies have not shown that taking vitamins, herbs, and other nutritional supplements can help cancer patients live longer. Some may even shorten life. Before taking any supplement, discuss it with your health care provider.

4. Get recommended cancer screenings.
Cancer survivors should go to all the follow-up visits their cancer care team recommends, to make sure the cancer hasn’t come back.
Survivors can also get other cancers. Unless told otherwise by your health care provider, follow the same testing schedule for your age and gender as the general population.

5. Create a survivorship care plan.
Ask your cancer care team to give you a thorough record of the treatments you had and any follow-up they recommend.
Understand which provider – oncologist, primary care doctor, or other specialist – should be in charge of cancer-related and other medical care. If you don’t know, ask.

6. Take care of your emotional health.
Spend time with family and friends, and doing things you like.
Focus on your spiritual side, whether that means participating in organized religion, communing with nature, meditating, creating art, or whatever speaks to you.

10 Tips for work safety

Staying healthy and safe at work is important. No matter what your job, it is important to reduce your risks of injury and illness at work.

Here are some tips to help make your workplace safe.

1⃣ Understand the risks. Once you know the particular hazards of your job or workplace, you can take steps to reduce your risk of work-related injury or illness.

2⃣ Reduce workplace stress. Common causes include long hours, heavy workload, job insecurity and conflicts with coworkers or bosses. Stress can lead to depression, sleeping difficulties and problems with concentration.

3⃣ Take regular breaks. Staying fresh and alert will help you avoid injury or burnout. Schedule the most difficult tasks of each day for times when your concentration is best, such as first thing in the morning.

4⃣ Avoid stooping or twisting. Use ergonomically designed furniture and equipment, and rearrange your work area so that everything you need is within easy reach.

5⃣ Use mechanical aids whenever possible. Instead of trying to lift or carry a heavy object, use a wheelbarrow, conveyor belt, crane or forklift.

6⃣ Protect your back.If you do need to pick up and carry heavy loads, keep the load close to your body and lift with your thigh muscles.

7⃣ Wear protective equipment to suit the task. If worn correctly, gear such as earplugs, earmuffs, hard hat, safety goggles, gloves or full-face mask can dramatically reduce your risk of injury.

8⃣ Stay sober. Alcohol and drugs are a contributing factor in around three per cent of workplace fatalities.

9⃣ Talk over any concerns. Your employer or human resources manager need to be informed about hazards and risks. Your employer is legally obliged to ensure a safe working environment.

1⃣0⃣ Know your rights. Organisations such as WorkSafe Victoria or unions can offer information and advice on workplace safety issues.


That's a nice one. If many knows this tips,  industrial hazards  and other forms  of hazards would be averted. It's good people start knowing all these. Information is powerful.
