Prevention of heat related disorders
EYES : Exposure to UV radiation leads to premature formation of cataracts. Reflected light is particularly rich in harmful short wavelength ultraviolet radiation. Using a spurious sunglass is more harmful than not using any glasses, as these glasses cause a shading effect but do not cut the UV. The shading effect cause the pupil to dilate and present a larger aperture for the UV to enter the eyeball.

SKIN : It is mostly the shorter wave length UV radiation ( 290 - 320 nm ) that cause damage. The skin could be damaged acutely as a Sun Burn or chronic damage in the form of premature aging of the skin, dyspigmentation, solar keratosis and skin cancer. Preventive measures include : Gradual exposure of the skin to sunlight over a few days, this gives time for the body to produce melanin, the protective pigment in the skin. Wearing fullsleeves shirts and wide brimmed hats.Using a sun barrier cream.

Rift Valley Fever
Rift valley fever is a fever causing disease affecting the livestock and humans in Africa. The disease is most common during heavy rainfall. The mode of transmission is through an infected mosquito (Aedes mosquitoes) and other bloodsucking insects. The disease is named after a trough stretching 4,000 miles from Jordan through eastern Africa to Mozambique.

The virus is in its inactive state within the eggs of an Aedes mosquito. The eggs of the Aedes mosquito hatches numerous amount of infected mosquito that feed on livestock causing the spread of the virus. This occurs during heavy rains and floods. The occurrence of the disease in a large number of domestic animals is referred to as an “Epizootic”; its presence can lead to an epidemic in humans.

Ten ways to get a handle on stress
Exercise is a key method of working off stress and tension. But there are many other useful approaches to managing these problems.

1. “Blow off steam” When angry or upset, or when feeling any kind of stress or tension, it’s wise to engage in some kind of physical activities. Virtually any kind of physical activity provides an outlet for the “fight” impulse – as contrasted with a “flight” urge – thus relieving mental or emotional stress.

2. “Talk it out”: Is there someone in your life whom you trust and respect? That person may be the one to sit down and “talk it out”.

Life Can Be "Like A Box of Chocolates"
Remember the famous line from Forrest Gump's momma in the 1995 Oscar-winning film? "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Well, that may be true. But there is one thing we do know - if you don't practice proper dental hygiene, you're most certainly gonna get a cavity, or at least periodontal disease.

It is easy these days to become overwhelmed by the advertising and media attention focused on dentistry and dental products. And while this attention may seem excessive, it does help to emphasize the importance of good oral hygiene for health, beauty and overall quality of life.

Painless Dentistry ...Pulp Fiction or Virtual Reality?
What do you fear most about going to the dentist? Just the thought of having a needle inserted into your cheek and a cavity removed from your tooth is enough to bring tears to the eyes. However, surprisingly it is not the actual dental procedure that most often terrifies patients. According to surveys, the site of a needle and the sound of the drill were the two most feared elements of dentistry. It may seem strange, but visual stimuli, sounds and even memories can actually enhance pain. In fact, fear and anxiety related to dental procedures very often complicates matters. It is comforting to know that just as the mind can trick you into interpreting sights and sounds as pain, so too can the mind be used to control pain. In this article, we will explore the reasons behind the severity of dental discomfort and offer options for its control.

Introduction: One should not forget that many poor nations of Africa & Asia still struggling to improve healthy weight of nationals. Poverty, dense population, uncontrolled infectious diseases, lack of health facilities, addictions are contributory factors for the poor health standard.
