Has Your Marital Status Got Anything With Your Figure?

Researchers at Ohio State University headed by Dmitry Tumin has made some connection between marital status and weight gain and its varying effects on men and women.  After scrutinizing answers from 10071 men and women who participated in a survey , the team has reached on the conclusion that in the cases of men it will help them to remain trim and maintain good figure provided they remain married.  But they start to gain weight no sooner than they do get divorced.  In the case of women, they put on weight after getting married.  probably due to lack of time for exercise.  Or may be due to their loosing interest on body maintenance after achieving a husband.  But the research is silent on how bodies of women react after divorce.

So women who want to keep up the figures can do so by not getting married and men who desire to maintain figure should not get divorced.

The Secrets of 100 Year's Life

A new health report says longevity is connected to genes than life style.  No matter whatever bad traits you are indulging into, like drinking,smoking, eating fast food etc., you may live for 100 years if  genes you inherited support you.  I do not know how many takers would there be for this  new theory as it goes against all prevailing norms of health management. Amy Winehouse  who lost her life recently, allegedly due to excessive drinking and drug abuse would not have met her tragic end this way.  Or is it because she inherited a bad gene?

While not contenting the new report, one may assure good health and modify the gene by strengthening vital organs like, heart,lungs,kidney, brain etc., by following a good life style.   A wayward life style is sure to weaken your vital organs to affect the quality of life no matter how so ever long it may be extended.

How to Escape from Memory Loss?

As age grows, memory loss is a common problem faced by all.  They forget things easily and most vital information some times are lost from their memory.  In today's world every one has to remember a lot of things like pin numbers, passwords, your vehicle numbers,  phone numbers and what not.  If you find it difficult to remember them at right time you will be a looser.   Some say it is because,  as age grows human brain shrinks in size to give longer life span.

As age grows working memory or what is called short term memory gets reduced.  Researchers from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut has conducted their experiments on monkeys to find out that younger animals retain their memory for a longer period than old ones.

Now Scientists have come up with a suggestion to use Guanfacine a low cost drug used to treat Blood pressure as a treatment to check memory loss.  The side effects of using it for a prolonged period is not known yet.  But when one is conscious of this disability, he can always endeavor to rectify it by adopting certain measures. However, let us hope some progress is being made by scientific community to solve this inherent human disability.
