Two parallel lines you see between two eyes. It is sign of aging. It is generally developed in 50s. It was shocking for me to see college going youth developed those linings!

Obviously, I knew the culprit. It is damn excessive screen time (mobile, laptop, TV). More screen time during night. More exposure to artificial light.

“Computer Face/Smarphone Face”

In September 2010, the Daily Mail published an interesting report. According to a leading cosmetic surgeon, professionals who sit for hours in front of the computer—and who tend to squint, frown, or remain in one position for a long period of time—are at a greater risk for the appearance of premature aging.

That means accelerated fine lines, wrinkles, frown lines, turkey neck, deep wrinkles, and jowls. In fact, office workers were the most likely to show signs of premature aging.

Here are some of the potential problems:

  • If you frown or squint when concentrating—you may end up with premature frown lines.
  • Sitting in one position too long can increase risk of jowls.
  • If you look down a lot, neck muscles can shorten and sag—turkey neck.
  • Younger men and women are aging more quickly because of the heavy use of information technology.

So far, this is a phenomenon touted only by cosmetic surgeons, who claim to be seeing more and more younger patients with these types of effects. We have yet to see any real scientific study on the matter, but these early warnings may be worth heeding, considering how badly the muscles in the rest of our body react to endless sitting.


The obvious cure for smartphone face or Computer face isn’t costly surgery or treatments. It’s giving up my smartphone and all of its apps.

Reduce your screen time before it is too late! Detox teens around you or else soon we will see aged youth all around!

We as a society, forgot this valuable prescription encapsulated in वर्णाश्रम व्यवस्था. Till 25, it is ब्रह्मचर्य. Gender-neutral rule. Restrain.

Now since, we really don’t care about the prescription, not only innocent attraction triggered by bodily changes, teens of our age are over-indulged in sex. Stress for growing organs.

Results? High chances of Cervical cancer. If not cancer, frequent infections. Indigestion. Rapid aging.

Not only that, HPV vaccine stress. Vicious cycle.

This[1] BBC article starts well by stating :

“”Although women can be infected by HPV at any age, infections at a very young age may be especially dangerous as they have more time to cause damage that eventually leads to cancer.”

But it ends with nasty HPV vaccine recommedation:

“Importantly, the results back up the need for the HPV vaccination to be given in schools at an age before they start having sex, especially among girls in deprived areas.”

Vaccine is not a solution for preventing Cervical cancer. Self-restrain is.

If you have teens at home, take care. Divert their creative energy towards constructive attractions. Sports – best. Classical Music and Dance  – another best. Explain them dangers of early age sex. Save their future.

Teens Social media

Since many of us only believe when Stanford and Harvard study confirms, this is for them.

If you recall, we discussed here many times that teen age cannot discriminate between RIGHT vs WRONG. Their brain is hardwired for imitation.

Teens absorb social media news without considering the source; parents can teach research skills and skepticism

If they are driven by Bollywood or News Media, don’t expect strong and powerful citizen of future! They will, one or another way, compromise with life! Evidences are all around (include us).

Before exposing children to toxic perception management called “MEDIA and ENTERTAINMENT”, think twice.

Most Students Don’t Know When News Is Fake, Stanford Study Finds

Teens absorb social media news without considering the source; parents can teach research skills and skepticism

https://www.wsj.com/articles/most-students-dont-know-when-news-is-fake-stanford-study-finds-1479752576?mod=e2fb

Preteens and teens may appear dazzlingly fluent, flitting among social-media sites, uploading selfies and texting friends. But they’re often clueless about evaluating the accuracy and trustworthiness of what they find.

Some 82% of middle-schoolers couldn’t distinguish between an ad labeled “sponsored content” and a real news story on a website, according to a Stanford University study of 7,804 students from middle school through college. The study, set for release Tuesday, is the biggest so far on how teens evaluate information they find online. Many students judged the credibility of newsy tweets based on how much detail they contained or whether a large photo was attached, rather than on the source.

Modern Teens and Lack of Focus

Focus? Lost! Distractions? Yes!
Img src: http://healthizmo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/iStock_000076792891_Small-620×400.jpg

Recently, I was having conversation with young educated friend. He was not able to follow instructions  I gave. Even after repeating the same twice, efforts were futile.

Why?

Adolescence has always been characterized by emotional intensity, impulsivity and risk-taking, the bid for autonomy, the quest for identity, and the desire for intimacy, sexual and otherwise.

When this impulsivity is channelized, society is gifted by wonderful talents like Olympic representatives, Footballers, scientists etc.

Unfortunately, modern teens do not get much help for this. Instead, majority of them are driven to distractions by their addiction to screen culture (TV,Mobile,Internet).

Tech offers a round-the-clock stage for teen drama. Like an app for emotionality, tech connects and quickens, heightens and amplifies all things. Even silence. Texting, video chat, sexting, and social media have created a streaming soap opera for teens, a scintillating reality-show subculture in which everyone gets to play both celebrity and paparazzi.

What is lost here? Focus. Concentration. Skill building. Talent nurturing. Passion for work.

Result? Mediocre next generation.

Do you want proof? Go and check any job mela where freshers are applying. (As per latest survey, out of 4 lakh or so engineers passing from Indian colleges every year, only 4% are worth with industry-readiness.)

Seeds of this tech obsession are sown in childhood when parents escape from their quality time kids and replaces real humans with gadgets.

Take care.

http://www.nielsen.com/us/en/insights/news/2011/new-mobile-obsession-u-s-teens-triple-data-usage.html

Teens have officially joined the mobile Data Tsunami, more than tripling mobile data consumption in the past year while maintaining their stronghold as the leading message senders. Using recent data from monthly cell phone bills of 65,000+ mobile subscribers who volunteered to participate in the research, Nielsen analyzed mobile usage trends among teens in the United States. In the third quarter of 2011, teens age 13-17 used an average of 320 MB of data per month on their phones, increasing 256 percent over last year and growing at a rate faster than any other age group.  Much of this activity is driven by teen males, who took in 382 MB per month while females used 266 MB.

Parenting Blunder – 2 : Teens, TV, Media and Indulgence

TV influence on teens
TV influence on teens

Exposure to sexual content in music, movies, television, and magazines accelerates adolescents’ sexual activity and increases their risk of engaging in early sexual intercourse. Result: Confused teens with matured bodies but toddler’s mind. They become irresponsible citizens in future due to hampered development.

Exposure to virtual world tools (Facebook,Twitter,Whatsapp) decelerates adult mind that behave like a child. The word for such adults is neoteny, the state resulting when juvenile characteristics are retained by the adults of a species. (Isn’t narcissism a predominant juvenile behavior? Click photos. Share. Expect likes. Expect comments. Think about it.)

Both are social diseases. Society/Individual suffering from these diseases, cannot perform their duties towards self, family, society, Nation and mankind.

Unless we fix these two diseases, there is hardly any hope for real change in society. And to begin with, we must correct our habits. Divert your free time from passive entertainment to more engaging and active activities. Take breaks from virtual world. Go spend days and days with Nature. Spend time with mass. Understand them. Participate in constructive activities.

Grey Matter Regulation : Why Brahmcharya for Adolescent age?

1

ADdicted Teens

If I or any well-wisher of Bharat-Bhumi prescribes Brahmcharya to young generation, not only targeted teens, their parents, media and all, will laugh and mock. That is what happens when society act as zombie and react as zombie! We really no more live sensible life where there is high respect for body and mind. We only believe in exploiting  body and mind for short term gratification.

Let us discuss relation between Gray matter and conspicuous consumption of senses.

What Grey Matter?

Grey matter contains most of the brain’s neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control.[1]

When your teens are brainwashed by free-sex propaganda…

Researchers found less grey matter in the brains of men who watched large amounts of sexually explicit material, according to a new study.[2]

“Individuals with lower striatum volume may need more external stimulation to experience pleasure and might therefore experience pornography consumption as more rewarding, which may in turn lead to” more porn watching, said the authors, concluding that more study is needed.

More porn and/or more sex => Less grey matter => dying neural pathways => Inability to perform simple tasks without motivation

Brahmcharya? Ever heard about it? Follow it or perish/become zombie!

“Just as when you remove the internet connection to your computer you won’t get your email anymore, there are white matter pathways which result in large scale communication failures in the brain when damaged,” Van Horn said.
When white matter pathways are damaged, brain areas served by those connections may wither or have their functions taken over by other brain regions, the researchers explain. Irimia and Van Horn’s research on core white matter connections is part of a worldwide scientific effort to map the 100 billion neurons and 1,000 trillion connections in the living human brain, led by the Human Connectome Project and the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at USC.”

Imagine teens of 2018 – even moderately, without exposure to internet porn, they are being bombarded daily with Sunny Leone and ilk like her.

When teens of 2018 will become adults of 2020, we will have more mentally challenged citizens than ever in past. More suicides, more violence against women and more crimes. Mark my words.

Bloody nonsense condom ads making youth सत्वविहीन, ओजसविहीन – good for nothing weak breed.

Foolish doctors write in articles that sperms are auto-generated daily. Have sex as many times you want! Morons, who will compensate सत्व,ओजस & white matter in brain!

And sick intellectuals compare porn with Khajuraho & Kamasutra!

Days are not far when modern medical science will start accepting पञ्चकोशीय शरीर विज्ञान

What is solution? Is there any way we can bring back addicted-teens to normalcy?

Here is the way to increase gray matter : Meditation

Any doubt why in ancient Gurukul education, Yoga and meditation was de-facto standard?

Mindfulness practice leads to increases in regional brain gray matter density [3]

Therapeutic interventions that incorporate training in mindfulness meditation have become increasingly popular, but to date, little is known about neural mechanisms associated with these interventions. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), one of the most widely used mindfulness training programs, has been reported to produce positive effects on psychological well-being and to ameliorate symptoms of a number of disorders. Here, we report a controlled longitudinal study to investigate pre-post changes in brain gray matter concentration attributable to participation in an MBSR program. Anatomical MRI images from sixteen healthy, meditation-naïve participants were obtained before and after they underwent the eight-week program. Changes in gray matter concentration were investigated using voxel-based morphometry, and compared to a wait-list control group of 17 individuals. Analyses in a priori regions of interest confirmed increases in gray matter concentration within the left hippocampus. Whole brain analyses identified increases in the posterior cingulate cortex, the temporo-parietal junction, and the cerebellum in the MBSR group compared to the controls. The results suggest that participation in MBSR is associated with changes in gray matter concentration in brain regions involved in learning and memory processes, emotion regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking.

[1] VARIATION WITH AGE IN THE VOLUMES OF GREY AND WHITE MATTER IN THE CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES OF MAN: MEASUREMENTS WITH AN IMAGE ANALYSER

The total volumes and relative quantities of grey and white matter have been measured in sixty‐five normal male and sixty‐five normal female cerebral hemispheres. Fixed hemisphere volume was found to fall linearly at 35% per decade for men from 641 ml at the age of 20 to 463 ml at the age of 100. For women the decrease was 1–9% per decade from 531 ml at 20 years to 462 ml at 100 years. After correction for the effects of fixation and for the secular increase in brain size, it was concluded that mean hemisphere volume remained roughly constant between the ages of 20 and 50 years (558 ml for men, 474 ml for women). After the age of 50 the mean volume in both sexes fell at about 2% per decade. The ratio of the volumes of grey to white matter was the same for the two sexes at all ages. Its mean value was 1–3 at the age of 20, falling to 11 at the age of 50, then rising steadily to over 1–5 at 100 years. It is impossible in practice to correct these measurements for the effects of fixation or secular change. Fourteen hemispheres from thirteen elderly female dements were also measured. The total volume was 18% lower than for an age‐matched group of normals, but the ratio of grey to white matter was identical.”

Adolescents Living the 24/7 Lifestyle: Effects of Caffeine and Technology on Sleep Duration and Daytime Functioning

http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/123/6/e1005?sso=1&sso_redirect_count=1&nfstatus=401&nftoken=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000&nfstatusdescription=ERROR%3a+No+local+token

OBJECTIVE. Adolescents may not receive the sleep they need. New media technology and new, popular energy drinks may be implicated in sleep deficits. In this pilot study we quantified nighttime technology use and caffeine consumption to determine effects on sleep duration and daytime behaviors in adolescents. We hypothesized that with increased technology use, adolescents increase caffeine consumption, resulting in insufficient sleep duration.

PATIENTS AND METHODS. Subjects were recruited from a pediatric office in a proximal suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Inclusion criteria for this study were middle and high school subjects aged 12 to 18 years old. The questionnaire, Adolescent Sleep, Caffeine Intake, and Technology Use, was developed by the investigators to measure adolescents’ intake of caffeinated drinks, use of nighttime media-related technology, and sleep behaviors. Descriptive statistics characterized the subjects, their caffeine and technology use, and sleep variables. Regression models assessed the relationships between caffeine, technology use, and sleep variables, having adjusted for age, race, gender, and BMI.

RESULTS. Sleep was significantly related to the multitasking index. Teenagers getting 8 to 10 hours of sleep on school nights tended to have 1.5- to 2-fold lower multitasking indices compared with those getting less sleep. Thirty-three percent of the teenagers reported falling asleep during school. Caffeine consumption tended to be 76% higher by those who fell asleep. The log-transformed multitasking index was significantly related to falling asleep during school and with difficulties falling asleep on weeknights.

CONCLUSIONS. Many adolescents used multiple forms of technology late into the night and concurrently consumed caffeinated beverages. Subsequently, their ability to stay alert and fully functional throughout the day was impaired by excessive daytime sleepiness. Future studies should measure more than television hours when evaluating the impact of nighttime activities on sleep patterns in adolescents.

Gastrointestinal Disorders Are Associated Significantly With Sleepless Nights

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/12/041220024853.htm

“We think the findings will generate further research to understand the interactions between emotional or psychological distress and sleep disturbances and GI disturbances,” says Santhi Swaroop Vege, M.D., a Mayo Clinic physician and lead author of the study.

Sleep disturbances and inflammatory bowel disease: a potential trigger for disease flare?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3046047/

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a waxing and waning disease characterized by diarrhea, abdominal pain and weight loss. Recently, there has been an increased interest in the roles that sleep, circadian rhythms and melatonin could have as regulators of inflammation in the Gl tract. Advances in our understanding of the molecular machinery of the circadian clock, and the discovery of clock genes in the GI tract are opening up new avenues of research for a role of sleep in IBD. Altering circadian rhythm significantly worsens the development of colitis in animal models, and preliminary human studies have shown that patients with IBD are at increased risk for altered sleep patterns. Further research is needed to clarify the role of disturbances in IBD.

Sleep, immunity and inflammation in gastrointestinal disorders

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3882397/

Sleep disorders have become a global issue, and discovering their causes and consequences are the focus of many research endeavors. An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from some form of sleep disorder. Certain sleep disorders have been shown to cause neurocognitive impairment such as decreased cognitive ability, slower response times and performance detriments. Recent research suggests that individuals with sleep abnormalities are also at greater risk of serious adverse health, economic consequences, and most importantly increased all-cause mortality. Several research studies support the associations among sleep, immune function and inflammation. Here, we review the current research linking sleep, immune function, and gastrointestinal diseases and discuss the interdependent relationship between sleep and these gastrointestinal disorders. Different physiologic processes including immune system and inflammatory cytokines help regulate the sleep. The inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1 (IL-1), and IL-6 have been shown to be a significant contributor of sleep disturbances. On the other hand, sleep disturbances such as sleep deprivation have been shown to up regulate these inflammatory cytokines. Alterations in these cytokine levels have been demonstrated in certain gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, gastro-esophageal reflux, liver disorders and colorectal cancer. In turn, abnormal sleep brought on by these diseases is shown to contribute to the severity of these same gastrointestinal diseases. Knowledge of these relationships will allow gastroenterologists a great opportunity to enhance the care of their patients.

Culture of Violent Web-Series and Making of Zombies

I wrote this post 5 years back but I think it was ahead of time. Many friends called be fanatic for it.

teenviolence

There is new trend. What you can’t produce as multiplex movies due to censor board, produce them as web-series. There is no censor but you get maximum views. Even teens and kids will watch it as there is hardly any parental control in tech-illiterate society with no moral duties.

Trend of showing psychopath (a person with an antisocial personality disorder) led gross violence is increasing in retarded Bollywood (Gangs of wasseypur type).

Now the point is: As per study, there is a link between less functioning brain/mind of young adult whose brain development is still going on (age under 25) and interest in such psycho violence. (Link in first comment on post)

There are two possible conclusions.

1) Either violence disturbs brain development -> confused youth
2) Or due to pathetic food intake (Fast food) and lack of parenting, youth take interest in such retarded psycho movies and that further lead to slow down of brain development.

In either case, it is loss-loss situation. It only increases confused and psychos in society. And are we surprised about crimes against women? We shouldn’t be.

Solution?

1) Make sure your teen boy and girl eat right food. At least you should control it.
2) If possible, explain them side effects of remaining in influence of retarded or psycho perceptions.

Exposure to TV Violence Related to Irregular Attention and Brain Structure

“We found that the more violent TV viewing a participant reported, the worse they performed on tasks of attention and cognitive control,” Dr. Hummer said. “On the other hand, the overall amount of TV watched was not related to performance on any executive function tests.”

Dr. Hummer noted that these executive functioning abilities can be important for controlling impulsive behaviors, including aggression. “The worry is that more impulsivity does not mix well with the behaviors modeled in violent programming.”

Tests that measured working memory, another subtype of executive functioning, were not found to be related to overall or violent TV viewing.

Comparing TV habits to brain images also produced results that Dr. Hummer and colleagues believe are significant.

“When we looked at the brain scans of young men with higher violent television exposure, there was less volume of white matter connecting the frontal and parietal lobes, which can be a sign of less maturity in brain development,” he said.

White matter is tissue in the brain that insulates nerve fibers connecting different brain regions, making functioning more efficient. In typical development, the amount or volume of white matter increases as the brain makes more connections until about age 30, improving communication between regions of the brain. Connections between the frontal and parietal lobes are thought to be especially important for executive functioning.

“The take-home message from this study is the finding of a relationship between how much violent television we watch and important aspects of brain functioning like controlled attention and inhibition,” Dr. Hummer said.

Early Male Friendship and Substance Abuse in Teen Girls

Although this study is done in western context, it is becoming reality in Indian context too. My friend, working in Call center MNC, in metro, told me that, in cities like Mumbai, Pune, you will find equal number of females consuming cigarette and alcohol in very young age.

Drug abuse is an extreme outcome of carefree and careless society.It happens because we lack power of discrimination and ignore physiology of distinct genders and care to be given to them.
————————–
In childhood, boys and girls tend to form friendships almost exclusively with same-sex peers. Around early adolescence, they gradually begin to include other-sex friends in their network.

The findings show that girls tend to initiate the transition to a mixed-gender friendship network earlier than boys, and continue this transition at a faster pace during adolescence. As a result girls who experienced this transition early and fast were more likely to develop substance abuse problems during late adolescence.


One point agenda type western studies blissfully ignores other parameters like family environment, bonding with siblings , parenting in drug abuse.

33% of all kids today in US have zero father presence in their lives. This is more strong reason for drug abuse. That is more dangerous trend pushing teens for drug abuse.

Early Male Friendship as a Precursor to Substance Abuse in Girls

http://as.wiley.com/WileyCDA/PressRelease/pressReleaseId-93117.html

Montreal, QC —March 10, 2011 —In childhood, boys and girls tend to form friendships almost exclusively with same-sex peers. Around early adolescence, they gradually begin to include other-sex friends in their network. A new study published in Journal of Research on Adolescence suggests that girls and boys experience this transition very differently. The findings show that girls tend to initiate the transition to a mixed-gender friendship network earlier than boys, and continue this transition at a faster pace during adolescence. As a result girls who experienced this transition early and fast were more likely to develop substance abuse problems during late adolescence.

Researchers followed a sample of almost 400 adolescents (58% girls), aged twelve to eighteen, from a large French-speaking school district in Canada. They were interviewed annually over a seven-year period about their friendship network and their use of alcohol and drugs.

Lead author Dr. François Poulin, “Peer relationships are considered to be one of the main risk factors for substance use. However, for boys, the formation of other-sex friendships is not associated with later substance use problems. Boys reported receiving higher levels of emotional support from their other-sex friends, whereas girls receive more support from their same-sex friends. It is possible that having other-sex friends is protective for boys because they gain emotional support and are therefore less likely to engage in problem behavior.”

The study finds that among girls, antisocial behavior and early pubertal maturation accelerated the increase in the proportion of other-sex friends. Compared to their same-sex friends, girls tended to form friendships with older males in out-of-school contexts. Since the legal drinking age is 18 in Canada, it may simply be more difficult for younger girls to purchase their own alcohol, thus older boys become one point of access for this substance. The study findings imply that parents may wish to take a more active role in monitoring their daughters’ friendships, especially with older boys.

The authors maintain that by middle adolescence, once this transition has been completed, the impact of other-sex friendships on girls’ maladjustment fades away. Mixed-gender networks then become more normative and girls are more likely to form romantic relationships with their male peers. The influence of boys on girls’ substance-using behavior might then operate in the context of these romantic relationships.

The authors suggest that future studies should also examine the longitudinal associations between other-sex friends and other outcomes such as educational achievement and antisocial behavior. Finally, aspects of these other-sex friendships in early adolescence should be more carefully investigated, including the setting in which they take place, their linkages with the rest of the youth’s friendship network, and parental supervision of these new emerging relationships.

Toxic Advertisements and subtle memes

15027724_10155593784734762_6508168330974446188_n

There is recent ad by TATA sky where Mr. Bacchan is doing some nautanki. Funny, isn’t it?

I see two hidden messages behind the ad.

1) It is this medium (and entertainment industry at large) who is controlling us like puppets.
2) Puppets are reflection of the creators. All puppets look same except when they are dressed differently. Similarly, TV, mass entertainment, passive entertainment kills our uniqeness as an individual and slowly injects popular planned generalized views about life. (Check the video. All puppets look same as Puppeteer Bacchan)

🙂 Do we really want this to happen with our precious unique life? What about our children? Future of the world? Do we want them to live like puppets of establishment?

Think about it.

Btw, The Internet commands our attention with far greater insistence than our television or radio or morning newspaper ever did. Do not surrender! Go, meet two new social contacts in real world before making 10 new friends here! (y) 🙂

Do frequent self-check: Am I one of those puppet in TATA sky ad? If yes, it is time to switch off 🙂
