14-year-old girl dies of deodorant

BBC URDU

On January 27, 2023 , 14-year-old Giorgia Green from Derby, UK, was found dead due to heart failure. Before her death, the girl had sprayed deodorant in her room.

After the death of their daughter, their parents learned that even before their daughter’s death, many children had died due to deodorant particles entering the body.

The British Aerosol Manufacturers Association responded by saying there were "clear warnings" on deodorants.

The law is that aerosol deodorants should have a warning printed ‘keeping children out of reach’.

But Georgia’s parents say it’s written too short on the spray. He says that many parents buy deodorant for their children without noticing the warning.

"People don’t know how dangerous the material in these tins can be. ‘

"I would like this to happen so that no one in the country, but in the world, has to go through the trauma that we are going through," he said. We don’t want our daughter’s death to go in vain. ‘

Giorgia was autistic and her father says she loved spraying deodorant on the bed and sheets because her scent made her feel comfortable.

"His scent gave him a sense of comfort. ‘

"If she was restless, spraying it would give her comfort because this deodorant was used by my wife. ‘

On May 11, 2022, Georgia’s brother found her unconscious.

"The door to her room was open, so it’s not like she was in a closed room. ‘

The ‘exact amount’ of deodorant sprayed is not clear, but it will be higher than what is usually sprayed. ‘

"At some point pulling him in with a breath made his heart stop working. ‘

An investigation into Giorgia’s death resulted in it being termed an "accidental death".

The medical cause of death has not been confirmed, but it has been said that the circumstances in which the death occurred may have been due to particles released from the aerosol entering the body with breath.

Between 2001 and 2020, 11 death certificates had ‘deodorant’, according to the UK’s Office of National Statistics.

However, deaths can be higher because death certificates do not always contain specific death-causing material.

Giorgia’s death certificate mentions ‘entering the aerosol body through breathing’ instead of ‘deodorant’.

Butane was one of the leading causes of 324 deaths between 2001 and 2020.

The Bureau of Statistics says that this material has been linked to many deaths and that "inhalation of butane and propane gas can cause a heart attack."

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) said excessive spraying of deodorant caused deaths

Cataract prevention: diet for the eyes

Every year, people over 40 should have their eyes examined. The ophthalmologist should be seen twice a year if there is a family history of eye diseases. Advanced cataract is a disability. For no other reason than the discomfort of the procedure, it is not worth risking vision loss.

Diet for the eyes

Although there is no scientific proof that diet can lower the risk of cataracts, we can “feed” our eyesight by adhering to the adage “you are what you eat.” Simple: the plate should be as colorful as possible for best visual appeal.

How to eat for eye health:

  • Avoid everything white: rice, flour, salt, and sugar,
  • Eat leafy vegetables , sweet potatoes, and carrots – they are sources of vitamin A, which is necessary for the proper functioning of the retina,
  • Let spinach, broccoli, and red pepper land on your plate; they are rich in lutein, which acts as a filter, protecting the eye from harmful UVA and UVB light. The right dose of lutein can reduce the risk of developing cataracts by up to 30%.
  • Blueberries and products rich in omega-3 fatty acids are healthy for the eyes. Fish (halibut, mackerel, and salmon) protect the outer layers of the eye and improve circulation.

Stress and appearance: how does stress affect beauty?

Stress can hurt your body, but it can also make you look ugly. Stress can cause wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, weak hair, dry skin, acne, and other changes to the skin.

Stress can cause changes in our hair, skin, or eyes. How can that be? Stress makes the body do different things. It can mess up the way hormones work, change the structure of DNA, and change the bacteria in the gut.

Stress can cause acne

Changes in hormones brought on by stress can cause acne. When we are stressed, our bodies make cortisol, which makes the sebaceous glands work harder and makes seborrhea worse. Stress can throw off the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, which can also cause skin changes that people don’t want.

Stress makes your skin dry

Stress makes the skin less hydrated because it upsets the way it normally keeps water in. It often gets dry and flaky. People who drink a lot of coffee, which also makes you lose water, should pay extra attention to this.

Stress and wrinkles

Collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, breaks down when you’re stressed or nervous. But that’s not all. Stress also hurts the DNA itself by making the telomeres weaker (their job is to protect the chromosomes and rebuild DNA losses). As a result, cells die and we look older..

Do you have hollow eyes? It’s from stress

When we are stressed, we often don’t get enough sleep. This is bad for our health and also for the skin around our eyes, which doesn’t have time to renew and heal. There are shadows and bumps that don’t make anyone more attractive. Getting enough sleep is the key. An adult should sleep about 7-8 hours.

Stress and thin and sparse hair

Stress that lasts for a long time can also hurt the health of the hair. It can stop the hair from growing, damage its structure, and even cause the hair follicles to become inflamed. When we are stressed, our bodies make chemicals that mess up the changes in the hair follicle and can even cause telogen effluvium.

The way you sleep encourages sleep wrinkles. How much sleep should you get to look younger?

Wrinkles will form no matter what. But they don’t all have to show up. One example is sleep wrinkles, which become permanent when you sleep in a certain way. The problem gets worse as time goes on. Scientists have investigated the best way to reduce wrinkles while sleeping.

Sleeping in certain positions – especially on the side – affects the appearance of unusual wrinkles (so-called sleep wrinkles) And since we sleep for a third of our lives, it’s worth knowing how to rest if those extra wrinkles are not welcome by us.

Sleep wrinkles can be avoided

You have to sleep, so how can you avoid getting wrinkles while you sleep? Researchers at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, led by Dr. Goesel Anson, a plastic surgeon, found that the only way to get rid of sleep lines is to not put pressure on your face while you sleep. So, in this case, the best way to sleep is on your back, or supine.

We can try sleeping on our backs, which is easier with certain pillows. But you should keep in mind that sleeping on your back can make some diseases worse, like sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux disease. A better solution might be to get a special pillow that lets you sleep on your side without making your face look funny.

A problem that increases with age

With age, the skin loses the ingredients that allow it to regain its former appearance (collagen, elastin, water). The number of body position changes at night also decreases (from 27 to 16). Most of us sleep mostly on our sides (65% of our sleep time), and on our backs less often (30%).

Sleep wrinkles and mimic wrinkles

Wrinkles after sleeping differ from mimic wrinkles in their location, mechanism of formation and arrangement. They arise as a result of external forces (not subcutaneous muscle contractions, as in the case of mimic wrinkles) and are perpendicular to the mimic wrinkles.

Infections have become stronger due to excessive or misuse of antibiotics: WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that in the year 2020, the misuse or excessive use of antibiotics around the world has revealed the strength of bacteria, which has further strengthened the infections.

According to the latest report released by the World Health Organization, data obtained from 87 countries of the world has shown that the misuse or overuse of antibiotics increased infections, which worsened diseases.

Popular heart medications can prolong life

According to a study in the journal “Aging Cell,” well-known medications used to treat cardiovascular disease can also delay the onset of old age. Although the investigations were conducted on animals, the authors think they could prove to be a successful anti-aging technique.

A calorie-restrictive diet is now thought to be the most effective anti-aging therapy. However, studies of calorie restriction in people have produced conflicting findings, as the experts point out. According to recent studies, there is already a medicine that might turn out to be a workable solution.

Why is fatigue and lethargy more common in winter?

During the winter, the nights get longer as the temperature decreases, but surprisingly people face more fatigue and lethargy while often there is also drowsiness.

But why does this happen in this season?

According to experts, with the arrival of winter, there are various challenges related to sleep.

They said that during the cold season, there are changes in the level of hormones, while the exposure to daylight is less and there is also a lack of specific vitamins in the body.

So know some common reasons for fatigue and lethargy in cold weather.

Seasonal affective disorder

It is a type of depression that some people face as a result of decreased daytime in winter.

Its symptoms appear at the end of autumn or the beginning of winter and disappear when spring or summer arrives.

Most of the symptoms of this disorder are mental, but there are also some physical symptoms such as lack of physical energy, sleep problems, feeling lethargic and changes in eating habits, etc.

According to experts, this problem is more common in women than men.

Hormones

They are important for physical energy. hormones called serotonin and melatonin are associated with mood and sleep.

Our brain produces melatonin so that it is possible to get good sleep in the darkness of the night, but in the winter, the darkness quickly covers and the duration of daylight is reduced, then the process of making melatonin is also affected.

In simple words, this hormone starts to become more in the morning, while in the evening, the process of its formation becomes active as soon as it is dark.

Changes in the levels of this hormone can result in negative effects on sleep and mood resulting in fatigue and lethargy.

Vitamin D

It is very important for the health of bones and teeth, while also strengthening the immune system.

Vitamin D deficiency results in fatigue.

One study found that people with vitamin D deficiency were given its supplements and their fatigue intensity was significantly reduced.

Vitamin D also supports the formation of serotonin, but its level decreases due to increased amount of melatonin in winter.

A decrease in the level of this hormone has a negative effect on mood while increasing the feeling of lethargy and fatigue.

When the duration of the day is reduced and sunlight exposure is reduced, the functions of the body clock are also affected and sleep problems are encountered.

During winter, people resort to various means to keep themselves warm, which also affects the functions of the body clock and increases sleep problems.

Lack of good sleep results in an increased sense of fatigue and lethargy.

Dietary

Habits also change breakfast time in winter which affects the stability of the body clock.

According to experts, the physical clock knows when the day started, which increases alacrity and physical energy, but due to the change in times, this process is reversed i.e. laziness and fatigue.

Not exercising

Most people avoid exercising in the winter.

This in turn affects physical energy and increases feelings of fatigue and lethargy.

Head injury doubles death rate in adults: Study

A new study has found that older people who have ever suffered moderate or severe head injuries

have twice the mortality rate compared to those who did not.

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, after 32 years of studying data from 13,000 people, found that people who had any type of head injury had a 2.21 times higher death rate than those who did not.

The participants were selected from four communities in Minnesota, Maryland, North Carolina and Mississippi with an average age of 54 years. 57 percent of the participants were women and 28 percent were black.

Those who had severe or multiple head injuries had a 2.87 higher mortality rate than those who did not have a head injury.

Head injuries (usually caused by a car collision, accidental fall, or sports) are also associated with long-term health problems. These problems include disability, epilepsy, dementia, and stroke.

According to the report, the results of the research illustrate the importance of a public health strategy to reduce morbidity and mortality through prevention of head injury and immediate medical attention.

Symptoms that indicate low blood pressure

Hypotension, or low blood pressure, can cause dark circles under the eyes, dizziness, and even fainting. Can this condition be treated? What are its causes?

Symptoms of low blood pressure

Only a small percentage of adults experience hypotonia. Systolic blood pressure less than 100 mmHg in women and 110 mgHg in men is referred to as hypotension.

Hypotension – symptoms

The most typical signs of low blood pressure are tinnitus, headaches, and dizziness. After getting out of bed, a quick position change is frequently related to it. Concentration and sustained attention issues are additional signs of hypotension. Doctors believe that this is because not enough blood-borne oxygen reaches the brain’s cells.

One of the more serious side effects of low blood pressure is blurred vision and spots before the eyes .

People with hypotonia also say that their pulse is too fast or that their heartbeat is off. They are always tired and have no energy or strength.

People with low blood pressure have cold hands and feet, and their faces are usually pale. They are meteopaths; when the weather changes, it makes them feel bad. It’s more likely that they’ll pass out. They often have trouble getting enough air and sweat a lot.

Causes of hypotension

Most people with this condition have a type called “primary” or “essential” hypotonia. Most of the people who get this are thin and young. Some scientists say that their artery walls aren’t flexible enough, which makes them more likely to get sick. Their blood flows with less pressure and gives their cells less oxygen, which can lead to many health problems.

Secondary hypotension is caused by long-term health problems. It can be caused by heart disease, hypothyroidism, the adrenal cortex, or the pituitary gland. Diabetes and some infections can also cause it.

Orthostatic hypotension is low blood pressure that happens after a person stands up. It is caused by a quick change in body position. In the cardiovascular system, there are problems with how pressure is controlled. This is most often shown by passing out. The elderly are most likely to have this kind of low blood pressure.

The reason is that they use drugs, such as psychotropic or anti-diabetic drugs, or drink too much or smoke. Low blood pressure can also be caused by being dehydrated, which can happen if you have diarrhea or get sick from food.

Dental Problems : The seal fell out – what to do? Why do fillings fall out

Lost fillings are a common reason for visits to the dentist. There are many possible causes, such as the passage of time, poor dental hygiene, teeth rubbing, biting something hard or sticky. When a filling has fallen out, you need to go to the dentist as soon as possible, because an unfilled tooth is exposed to the harmful effects of bacteria and irritants.

A filling is a dental filling of a tooth defect. Its task is to protect the tooth tissues against infection, food residues that are difficult to remove, the effects of cold or heat on sensitive tissues, but also the aesthetic appearance of the tooth in which e.g. caries has appeared. It should be remembered that no seal is forever and it happens that it falls out.

Why did the seal fall out?

. Following are the possible causes:

  • biting hard things – biting very sticky or hard foods, such as a nut, or objects can damage the tooth and filling,
  • tooth or tooth root injury ,
  • failure to comply with the recommendations after filling , e.g. regarding breaks from eating and drinking,
  • development of caries around the filling – weakens the bonding of the filling with the tooth tissue,
  • dental plaque (improper dental hygiene) – can separate the filling from the dental tissue,
  • bruxism – frequent grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw – over time, it causes abrasion not only of the tooth, but also of the filling,
  • passing time – the longer we have a seal, the greater the likelihood that it may fall out,

malocclusion .
