Oily face in summers? …Just rinse with chilled water:

Crazy Ideas

Oily face in summers? …Just rinse with chilled water:

In summers and especially in humid summers the sweat-pores of our faces open and the natural face-oil oozes out of our skin and deposits on the surface.  We wipe it with hankies and with tissue-papers; yet, it makes a very little difference. Our face gets drenched with oil within a few minutes and we again feel the same discomfort.

Health & Beauty Import

You may take advantage of the air-conditioner if you are driving your car. You need a couple of minutes and the oil vanishes away. It is just simple. Wipe your face with tissue-paper and turn the direction of the chilled air of air-conditioner towards your face. The chilled-air will close the sweat pores and the oozing process will stop. It will take a couple of minutes and you will feel that you never had your face covered with your natural skin oil. 

If you are in your office, college, school or at your home you need to go to your rest room. Wash your face with any face-wash or with a mild soap and rinse your face with chilled-water 
immediately after that
. This cooling will also close the pores and stop the process of oozing-oil out of your skin and you will feel fresh and comfortable.

Crazy Ideas: Heart ailments... The 'Tall and short' syndrome:

- Harish Jharia

It is being repeatedly reported in press that people with shorter height are more susceptible to heart ailments / heart failures. This study has been reported to be funded by Finnish Foundation for Cardiovascular Research and Authors and published online in the European Heart Journal. 

Here is the link to one such report online: 
Short people at greater risk of heart disease… 

Times Of India has published this report in their 10 June 2010 edition with a title “Short people at high risk of heart disease”. They have further elaborated the report that people with shorter height of 5’ 3” and below have higher risk of heart failures as compared to the people with a height of 5’ 9” and above.  

I have the following doubts on the report published in Times of India (TOI):

  1. Height cannot be taken as a criterion for such a huge and sensitive study irrespective of gender
  2. Humans of different races have different standard / average heights. 
  3. TOI has reported ‘angioplasties’ as ‘heart problems’ where as Angioplasty is a surgery, done for opening up blocked arteries by inserting a synthetic tube. 
  4. The safe height range as reported in TOI is above 5’ 9”, the dangerous range is below 5' 3" and the people in the doubtful unsafe range are between 5' 3" and 5' 9". 
  5. I am 5’ 8” and if I trust on this report I am well within the unsafe zone. Even about 80% of Indian men women fall in this zone.
  6. This report has been published in so very casual way and is based on vague criterion. This will create widespread fear psychosis among most of the Asian people where the average height of males and females fall in the unsafe zone.

I appeal to the people having shorter heights not to panic with this report, in spite of having published in leading print media and internet. You should rather do regular exercise, eat balanced diet and have sound sleep and fun in your life.

Crazy Ideas: Does Salt Intake Really Affect On Our High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)?

- Harish Jharia

It is a common practice that doctors advise you to reduce salt intake for keeping your blood pressure under control. I wonder if you reduce the salt intake… will the doctor stop the BP pills that you need to take every morning. 

The answer is unambiguously no…! Doctors, infact, advise us to drastically reduce salt intake; in addition to advising us to take BP pills regularly; simply because our BP would not be cured by reducing salt intake. 

I only find it absurd when this salt intake syndrome is blown out of proportions by certain schools of thoughts when they ask people to eat even salads absolutely without salt. 

In fact this misconception is based on the theory that...

"Salt intake increases water retention in our body and in blood. With this the volume of blood is believed to inflate in volume. This enhanced volume of blood increases our blood pressure marginally for a limited period of time. Nevertheless, the effect goes away once the salt flushes out with urine and sweat."

Remember that urine and sweat taste salty because this cleansing system takes away the excessive salt from our body. 

Following are the rolls of salt required for survival of our body: 
  1. Sodium content in salt is an essential nutrient that allows an organism to maintain its ionic balance and to retain water to keep hydrated. 
  2. Without salt we would dehydrate. 
  3. Salt (sodium) plays a major role in human health. It not only feeds nutritional mineral elements to our cells, it also dissolves, sanitizes and cleanses toxic wastes from our system.
  4. It is this latter function that makes salt such a healing substance.  
  5. All classic biology textbooks refer to salt as the cleanser of bodily fluids.
  6. Salt controls the amount of water within our bodies and maintains the critical balance between cells and body fluids.
  7. It also aids in the contraction of muscle tissue and serves as a vital ingredient of blood plasma and digestive secretions.
  8. I do not mean that we may take excessive salt. In fact our body will reject the attempts of eating excessive salt and eventually result in vomiting. 
Excessive consumption of everything is bad for our body and may damage our system to an extent of incurable condition and salt is no exception.
