Failed Child Planning, Elevated Lipid levels and Autism

Autism is mere one aspect of learning anomalies and it is spreading dangerously across all countries embracing western life style.

There are several reasons for high lipid level in blood. Two prime reasons I see behind them are – careless young couples’ apathy towards child planning and development.

Stress can cause high lipid levels. Many career aspirant married females in west and now in Indian society, takes too much stress during their most fertile years of the life. This lead to continuous high lipid level in blood.

Another reason is fat-heavy food + lack of exercise in life routine.
Unfortunately, this high lipid level causes learning disabilities in future generations.

Why curse future generation for our foolish rat-race?

Take a break. Plan your baby at ease. Earn little less but gift a best future citizen to Nation. Please, take care. Career can wait, nation cannot. Nation demands best progeny from you.

Lipid levels during prenatal brain development impact autism: York U study

In a groundbreaking York University study, researchers have found that abnormal levels of lipid molecules in the brain can affect the interaction between two key neural pathways in early prenatal brain development, which can trigger autism. In addition, environmental causes such as exposure to chemicals in some cosmetics and common over-the-counter medication can affect the levels of these lipids.

“We have found that the abnormal level of a lipid molecule called Prostaglandin E2 in the brain can affect the function of Wnt proteins. It is important because this can change the course of early embryonic development,” explains Professor Dorota Crawford, Faculty of Health, who is a member of the York Autism Alliance Research Group.

This is the first time research shows evidence for cross-talk between PGE2 and Wnt signalling in neuronal stem cells, according to the peer reviewed study published in Cell Communication and Signaling.

Lead researcher and York U doctoral student Christine Wong adds, “Using real-time imaging microscopy, we determined that higher levels of PGE2 can change Wnt-dependent behaviour of neural stem cells by increasing cell migration or proliferation. As a result, this could affect how the brain is organized and wired. Moreover, we found that an elevated level of PGE2 can increase expression of Wnt-regulated genes – Ctnnb1, Ptgs2, Ccnd1, and Mmp9. Interestingly, all these genes have been previously implicated in various autism studies.”

Autism is considered to be the primary disorder of brain development, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe, including repetitive behaviour, deficits in social interaction, and impaired language. It is four times more prevalent in boys than in girls, and the incidence continues to rise. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data from 2010 estimates that 1 in 68 children now have autism.

“The statistics are alarming,” says Crawford. “It’s 30 per cent higher than the previous estimate of 1 in 88 children, up from only two years earlier. Perhaps we can no longer attribute this rise in autism incidence to better diagnostic tools or awareness of autism.

“It’s even more apparent from the recent literature that the environment might have a greater impact on vulnerable genes, particularly in pregnancy. Our study provides some molecular evidence that the environment likely disrupts certain events occurring in early brain development and contributes to autism.”

STRESS and Lipid Levels

Elevated lipid levels in vietnam veterans with chronic posttraumatic stress disorder

Abstract

Background: Elevated cholesterol levels have been reported in panic disorder and anger attacks, but not major depression. No data have been reported in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Methods: Seventy-three male Vietnam veterans with chronic (PTSD) had serum lipid screening upon entry to a 90-day inpatient program.

Results: Elevated cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, and reduced high-density lipoprotein, were frequent in Vietnam veterans with chronic PTSD and are significant risk factors for coronary artery disease.

Conclusions: Routine lipid screening may be warranted in this at-risk population. Altered lipid levels may result from activation of the noradrenergic system.

Season Driven Pregnancy Planning

This is very critical note.

In sane dharma driven society, all activities are planned based on ऋत| All stages of life , all stages of year – they were respected while planning any new step in life.

मुहूर्त for Marriage is not mere some auspicious day but a perfect date to plan गृहस्थी! Based on innate nature of the male and female planning to marry, which is being reflected in their Kundali(s), perfect date is planned. A date that respects stages of would-be पति-पत्नी. A date that respects season of the year. A date that can help them to planned best progeny. Now this date is only used for Honeymoon planning! And sadly, most births happen by accident, without मुहूर्त, without desire to invite soul in best physical body!

The best way to reduce a child’s chances of developing asthma might be making sure Mom had enough vitamin D during the second trimester, a new study from the University of Kansas shows.

Solution? Go back to roots. Respect seasons. Identify वसंत’s love from वर्षा’s lust.

In this research, it is shown how sunlight exposure in specific trimester affects immunity of the child.

This is very easy to observe. Most pregnant mothers in higher middle class and elite class, spend their time in controlled AC home/office during pregnancy with MINIMAL exposure to the sun. In slums, it is forced non-exposure to the sun.

Auto-immune disorders are inevitable in such situations. 🙁

In short, The Sun, our प्राण-powerhouse, our father, is taking care of Mother Earth’s womb. And we must get exposure to it, to replenish our daily प्राण requirements. For pregnant mothers, it becomes critical because they are shaping one more universe in their womb.

If you don’t have asthma, maybe it’s because Mom experienced a sunny second trimester, health economist finds

The best way to reduce a child’s chances of developing asthma might be making sure Mom had enough vitamin D during the second trimester, a new study from the University of Kansas shows.

The most cost-effective way to get Mom more vitamin D could be as simple as health recommendations that consider the benefits of soaking up a little more sun, a practical and cost-effective way to get a dose of D.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 12 of us in the U.S. suffers from asthma.

“Our health system spends billions and billions treating asthma, and there’s lots and lots of opportunity costs,” said David Slusky, assistant professor of economics. “Pain and suffering, loss of productivity and premature death — asthma has all of those.”

When resources are being used inefficiently, that’s when Slusky and his fellow economists like to step in.

They knew about a recent medical hypothesis by Scott Weiss and Augusto Litonjua, both of whom are physicians with Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and professors at Harvard Medical School. Weiss and Litonjua hypothesize that vitamin D levels in the second trimester of pregnancy influence the probability that a fetus will develop asthma later in life.

Slusky and colleagues Nils Wernerfelt of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Richard Zeckhauser of Harvard’s Kennedy School put the medical hypothesis to the test using an economist’s tools, such as survey and health data.

“This is the golden age in the way that data about hospital discharges, insurance claims, birth certificates and death certificates are more and more available and more and more set up for researchers,” Slusky said. “And that allows economists to get really large sample sizes with not a lot of cost.”

Using data from hospital discharges in two states and from a national survey, Slusky and his colleagues looked at where and when asthmatics were born.

Then the economists looked at the measurements of sunlight in the birth locations when the asthmatics’ mothers would have been in their second trimesters.  Sunlight is where Americans get more than 90 percent of our vitamin D.
