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
A 40-year-old man was brought by an ambulance. On the eve of his friends, he marked the end of urgent work. We drank a little, had a bite than we have to. And today, an unbearable girdle pain forced to call an ambulance. Yes, and before that I noticed some deviations in the state of health; after drinking a glass of alcohol for several days there was loose stool, periodically there was pain either under the spoon, then in the lower back, or on the left side of the chest.
The patient had an exacerbation of the chronic inflammatory process in the pancreas – pancreatitis. Note: in men, the most common cause of this severe progressive disease is alcohol. And not only for those who drink constantly and in large doses. A glass of food “for appetite” before meals, occasional booze – this is enough to cause inflammation of the pancreas. Continue reading
The occurrence of coronary heart disease, including such a severe manifestation as myocardial infarction, is facilitated not only by smoking, poor nutrition, and a sedentary lifestyle. In the development of this disease can contribute, and moreover, very significant, and some psychological factors. Among them, the so-called type A behavior, excessive emotional stress, sleep disorders.
What do cardiologists understand by type A behavior? It is characterized by excessive activity, the desire to achieve greater and greater success, a pronounced tendency to leadership, rivalry, aggressiveness, a feeling of constant lack of time, impatience, anxiety. People who are characterized by such behavior are easy to recognize: they walk quickly, gesticulate energetically, talk a lot and quickly, are constantly busy with some business, practically do not rest, because they are excessively involved in work both during leisure hours and on weekends , and during vacation, which can lead to a heart attack.
