Obesity

Many of those who are overweight or obese and want to lose weight are interested in: can this be achieved with the help of drugs? No you can not.

They may object to me: but there are medicines that suppress appetite! Indeed, there are such medicines – they are called anorectics – they have a depressing effect on the center of hunger in the brain. But these potent drugs are prescribed for a short time and only in a hospital. The patient must be under the supervision of a doctor, since anorectics can cause dysfunctions of the central nervous system, liver, cause mental disorders, insomnia. Therefore, I strongly advise: if you want to lose weight and stay healthy, do not resort to self-medication with anorectics! Continue reading

Diabetes

The number of patients with diabetes in all economically developed countries is growing steadily. Currently, there are about 50-60 million of them in the world. Given that approximately the same number of people have diabetes in a latent form, the total number of patients is at least 100 million people. More often people over 40 – 50 years old get diabetes.

The main reasons for the increase in the incidence of diabetes mellitus are many experts consider overeating, an increase in the amount of sugar and other easily digestible carbohydrates in the diet. decrease in physical activity. The hereditary predisposition also matters. The greatest risk of getting diabetes is in those whose mother and father have diabetes (the risk of the disease is 60%). If one of the parents is sick, then the risk of getting sick is 22%, one of the ancestors – 14%, a cousin or brother – 9%. Fortunately, a hereditary predisposition to diabetes is not fatal. It manifests itself only under the influence of provoking factors. Continue reading

Electric field

Here is information about how an electric field affects a person, and whether to stay for a long time under high-voltage lines where there is an electric field.

All human life is surrounded by natural atmospheric electric fields. The electric field itself most clearly manifests itself in a thunderstorm. Then the tension near the ground reaches 10 kilovolts per meter (kV / m). But even in cloudless weather, the atmospheric field has an average strength of 130 volts per meter. We are talking about the average because. what, like and. for example, solar activity, atmospheric electric field oscillates cyclically, reaching a maximum in certain periods. There are 22-year (two eleven-year), annual, 27-day and daily periods. This value also depends on the geographical position: the maximum electric field strength is at moderate latitudes, and the minimum is at the poles and at the equator. But all these changes are taken by the body for granted. Continue reading
