Meanwhile most prior research that has suggested a link between a long work week and an increased risk of diabetes focused on men. Interestingly, this recent research seems to find the opposite effect in males: the longer the work week, the lower the incidence of diabetes. For women who work 45 hours per week or more, though, their risk was considerably higher.

The authors of the new study, which was published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research and Care, looked at data from the Canadian Community Health survey, which included respondents aged 35–74. They also looked at the Ontario Health Insurance Plan database for physician services, as well as the Canadian Institute for Health Information Discharge Abstract Database for hospital admissions.

Surprisingly, the mice on high-carbohydrate diets did not gain weight at all.

According to the researchers, eating fat is the only thing that made mice gain weight.

2. For those who also like to gulp down canned drinks without running a careful check, there could also be a grim picture as using a tissue paper to clean the opening is not enough to safeguard against the virus. For it to be safe for drinking, there would be need to use soap and water to clean it.

3. Do not drink directly from a canned drink. It can be dangerous because you don’t know whether rodents have urinated on them in the process of storage. It is important that we use soap and water to clean the openings of those things before they are consume by people.

4. Our food can get contaminated and if you eat without cooking, the possibility of getting infected is high. Once you cook the food items, you destroy the virus, so people smoking garri and all those kind of things are at risk. If the rodents urinate on the fruits and you pick up banana or carrot and you just start chewing it without washing, that could be dangerous, so it boils down to hygiene and cleanliness.

Chapter 16: Control your child weight: Obese kids more likely to develop a severe hip disorder

A UK study suggested that Kids who are obese may be more likely to develop a severe hip disorder than children who are not overweight.

The disorder, which is known as slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), is one of the most common hip problems in children and adolescents. It can lead the ball at the head of the thigh bone to slip backward and often requires surgery to repair. The condition has long been linked to obesity, which can put extra pressure on bones. However, research to date hasn’t offered decisive evidence that obesity directly causes SCFE.

Children with severe obesity were almost six times more likely to develop SCFE and youth who were less obese were almost four times more likely to develop SCFE, when compared to kids who were a normal weight .

“Some doctors, in particular orthopedic surgeons, have long believed that SCFE is linked to childhood obesity, though this has been very difficult to prove,” said lead study author Daniel Perry of the University of Liverpool in the UK.

“This is the first (of hopefully several studies) that will confirm that obesity is bad for children – in this case bad because it increases the risk of a rare but ‘nasty’ orthopedic condition which could be disabling. Children who are not overweight tend to be more active, fitter and healthier – and this can only be good for you.” said Eastwood.

Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes.

But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

DEPRESSION:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills – eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

ANEMIA:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

BLOOD PRESSURE:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit’s ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

BRAIN POWER:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

CONSTIPATION:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

HANGOVERS:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

HEARTBURN:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

MORNING SICKNESS:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

MOSQUITO BITES:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

NERVES:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

ULCERS:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Many other cultures see bananas as a ‘cooling’ fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’

Chapter 22: 4 Reasons Why Daily Bread Consumption Is Unhealthy

Eating several slices of bread is not what is bad what is bad is eating it everyday. This is because bread is not exactly one of the healthy foods to consume.

4 Reasons Why Daily Bread Consumption Is Unhealthy

1. Bread does not have much nutrients

Bread lack essential nutrients. There is nothing important that we are getting from eating bread. Especially consuming white bread that lacks fiber due to the absence of the whole grain. Bread baked out of whole grains should be something we opt for.

2. Bread contains too much salt

Chapter 23: Body Odour? 4 Things You Need To Do To Reduce It

Body odour is irritating and offensive. If you have body odour people will try to avoid moving closer to you or maybe you might be the one avoiding people and loss your self confidence in the process. However, there are certain things a person with body odour can do to reduce the odour to the barest minimum.

The first thing is to maintain body cleanliness. Shower at least once a day to wash away sweat and get rid of bacteria on your skin. Wash thoroughly, especially the areas where you tend to sweat particularly your underarms (armpits) and groin. Use antibacterial soap and towel-dry yourself completely, paying close attention to any areas where you sweat a lot.

Keep your armpits clean. Wash them regularly using anti-bacterial soap, and the number of bacteria will be kept low, resulting in less body odour. Armpit hair slows down the evaporation of sweat, giving the bacteria more time to break it down into smelly substances. So it’s a good idea to shave your armpits regularly. If your skin is dry, it’s harder for bacteria that cause body odour to breed. You may use antiperspirants on your underarms. Also use deodorant twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening.

Keep your clothes clean and change clothes often when you’re sweating heavily. Fresh clothes help keep body odour down. Change your socks as well, especially if you tend to have foot odour. Use deodorant powders in your shoes and go barefoot when possible.

Also, what you eat affects your body odour. Foods that tend to make you sweat more, such as hot peppers or other spicy foods, might also lead to body odour. The aroma of foods like onions or garlic can be carried in your sweat. Drinks containing caffeine or alcohol may also make you sweat more.

Ice is the easiest to find and use among other home remedies for acne. Ice simply reduces inflammation in a pimple. “Wrap an ice cube in a wash cloth and hold it on the pimple for a minute,” Jaliman said. “It will vasoconstrict the blood vessels and take down the redness and swelling.”
