=======================
When Governor of Kalyana, Bahlol Khan was defeated by Major General of Shivaji’s army, the latter presented a beautiful Begum to Shivaji. Strict celibate Shivaji looked at her with reverence, and said, “If I have to become beautiful, I will take birth through your womb, mother.” Saying this he scolded his Major and ordered him to send her with full honour to her husband. Shivaji was a strict celibate because he was a disciple of a mighty saint Samartha Ramadasa.

Blind Following and Dangers of Energy Drinks: traumatic brain injury in teens

0

One of the worse affected population in Globalization mimicry, is teen age population. They are vulnerable to all possible attractions and waves spread by entertainment mediums.

Teen age is a age when mind seeks role model. And it will adapt the role model blindly.

For modern days, real human role models are difficult to find and toxic influence of mass mediums is so high that teens picks up virtual characters or actors as role model.

One such habit they pick up early is: Gym and Energy drink. Sports and energy drink.

Study finds association between energy drinks and traumatic brain injury in teens

Teens who reported a traumatic brain injury in the past year were seven times more likely to have consumed at least five energy drinks in the past week than those without a history of TBI, according to a study published today in PLOS ONE.

Researchers also found that teens who reported sustaining a TBI within the past year were at least twice as likely to have consumed energy drinks mixed with alcohol than teens who reported sustaining a TBI more than a year previously.

“We’ve found a link between increased brain injuries and the consumption of energy drinks or energy drinks mixed with alcohol,” said Dr. Michael Cusimano, a neurosurgeon at St. Michael’s Hospital. “This is significant because energy drinks have previously been associated with general injuries, but not specifically with TBI.”

Dr. Cusimano said energy drink consumption could interfere with recovery efforts for teens who have sustained a TBI.

“Energy drinks, such a Red Bull and Rockstar, contain high levels of caffeine and change the chemical state of the body, which can prevent people from getting back on track after a TBI,” said Dr. Cusimano. “Brain injuries among adolescents are particularly concerning because their brains are still developing.”

At a time when energy drink consumption is rising among teens in Canada and the United States, the study also suggests that the caffeinated drinks are particularly linked with those who play sports.

“I think that energy drinks appeal to teens, especially athletes, because the drinks provide temporary benefits such as increased alertness, improved mood and enhanced mental and physical states,” said Dr. Cusimano. “Advertisements for the drinks also often feature prominent athletes.”

Energy Drinks, Alcohol, Sports and Traumatic Brain Injuries among Adolescents

TBI remains a disabling and common condition among adolescents and the consumption of alcohol, energy drinks, and alcohol mixed with energy drinks further increase the odds of TBI among adolescents. These associations warrant further investigation.

Early in fetal life, nutrient deficiencies may result in severe impairments. For example, folate. Or as popularly known as : B Vitamin.

Pill impact on future child

Pill obsession?
Pill obsession?

There are numerous benefits but the most critical is during embryonic brain development during pregnancy. Lack of folate during pregnancy means neural tube defects such as spina bifida (a birth defect where there is incomplete closing of the backbone and membranes around the spinal cord. ). This is extreme birth defect but it can lead to many invisible defects like Leg weakness, Orthopedic abnormalities, Bladder and bowel control problems, Abnormal eye movement and different types of allergies.

ACCORDING TO A LOT OF DOCTORS:

Got acne? Take the pill.
Got PMS? Take the pill.
Got irregular cycles? Take the pill.
Don’t want to get pregnant? Take the pill.

All thanks parents’ pre-planning sexual indulgence and avoidance of progeny by modern pills. Folate is a vitamin that may become depleted with the use of birth control pills. Aside from the long list of potential side effects birth control pills can deplete important nutrients. These nutrients include: Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Magnesium and Zinc.

Once the pills become regular bedroom utility, body start denying absorption of nutrients. No matter how sophisticated supplements you take.

Such information is never passed-on to teens and young married couples. And so sex becomes pleasure machine for them. Instant, handy and under control. What a toxic delusion! 🙁🙁 And and top of that Idiot Chetan Bhagat tribe cry for porn freedom rights!! Ghor Kaliyug !! 🙁🙁

Spread the awareness. Save the future of Bharat.

Sanatana dharma talks about Dharma-bound Kama. Pills supported or Condom supported Kama is Vikruti with unforeseen future consequences. Take care.

Effects of progestin-only long-acting contraception on metabolic markers in obese women

http://www.contraceptionjournal.org/article/S0010-7824(12)01048-7/abstract

A first-of-its-kind study by researchers at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) indicates that healthy, obese, reproductive-age women who use long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) containing the hormone progestin have a slightly increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes when compared to those who use non-hormonal contraception.
While changes in FG and insulin sensitivity were seen in the present study among obese progestin-only contraceptive users, either progestin-only LARC method may be safely used clinically.

Hormonal contraceptive use and risk of glioma among younger women: a nationwide case–control study

Taking a hormonal contraceptive for at least five years is associated with a possible increase in a young woman’s risk of developing a rare tumour, glioma of the brain. This project focused on women aged 15-49 years and the findings are published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.
Hormonal contraceptives, including oral contraceptives, contain female sex hormones and are widely used by women all over the world. While only a little is known about the causes of glioma and other brain tumours, there is some evidence that female sex hormones may increase the risk of some cancer types, although there is also evidence that contraceptive use may reduce the risk in certain age groups. “This prompted us to evaluate whether using hormonal contraceptives might influence the risk of gliomas in women of the age range who use them,” says research team leader Dr David Gaist of the Odense University Hospital and University of Southern Denmark.

Right Age, Right Actions : No? Yes to Cervical cancer

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.

We are living in society with obvious ironies.

On the other hand, we carelessly ignore teenagers and give them free-way! For them idiot Bollywood actors become role model and then the rest is history.

And then we also talk about sex education? 😀 lol

Sex education?
I will accept your version of SEX education if it can assure and convince all teens that SEX in teen age invites highly infectious diseases, irrespective of protective methods you use or not.
I will accept your version of SEX education if it can assure and convince all teens value of wait till 25 by rational physiological reasons.
Sorry but your version of SEX education is derailing societal fabric. It is converting innocence of teen age into perversion.
I cannot accept it. Fools in society can accept it at risk of sacrificing youth of 2020.


Research news


Having sex at an early age can double the risk of developing cervical cancer, a study of 20,000 women suggests.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8420690.stm

The investigation into why poorer women have a higher risk of the disease found they tended to have sex about four years earlier than more affluent women.

Previously, it had been thought the disparity was the result of low screening uptake in poorer areas.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer findings are published in the British Journal of Cancer.

Although the difference in cervical cancer incidence between rich and poor – across the world – had been noted for many years, it was not clear why this is the case.

Especially as rates of infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) – the sexually transmitted infection linked with the vast majority of cervical cancers – seemed to be similar across all groups.

They are no more interested in each other. they are interested in what others think about self.

It is called ‘narcissism’. Excessive interest in or admiration of oneself and one’s physical appearance. Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.

It is not benign trait! It is disorder! Save your kids. Save kids in your community!

Teen age is the age when they must be taught discipline. This is the age to practice self-control. Instead, they are hooked to self-consumption drive!

Grey Matter Regulation : Why Brahmcharya for Adolescent age?

2

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.

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

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 🙂
