Why Dishwashers are a healthy alternative ?

Some naturalist people may ague on this topic that dishwashers are actually healthy or not. Everything has got a positive and a negative side, but if we get rid of negativity than only positive is left. When it comes to using science in our daily lives then some precautions are also necessary. Using dishwashers is our kitchen looks fascinating for those who have not used them but keeping them clean is also necessary to keep your utensils germ free. Here we are going to tell you some healthy sides of using a dishwasher and how you can keep yourself away from unhealthy side-effects of dishwashers.

Why dishwashers are Healthy ?


  • Dishwashers use very high temperature water to clean the dishes and the mixture of hot water and cleaning agent cleans it better than hands can ever could.
  • The temperature difference from cold to hot and then wet to dry, that occur inside dishwasher is sufficient to kill most of the harmful bacteria that can sustain on your dishes during hand washing.
  • Kitchen sponge used in hand-washing of dished is found as germiest thing in your home is most of the researches, so you can't even compare the cleanliness of dishes washed in dishwasher with those cleaned with kitchen sponge.
  • Dishwashers use high-tech jets to clean your dishes that you can never do with hands.
  • Washing dishes with hand use much more water than used in a dishwasher. So if you want to save water and keep your dishes cleaner as well then dishwashers are must.

Precautions while using Dishwashers to keep yourself healthy


  • Clean your dishwasher at least once in a weak.
  • Proper cleaning of door's rubber seal is most necessary.
  • Never clean your dishes with a kitchen sponge before putting them in dishwasher as it will only add more germs instead of cleaning.

The inside of dishwasher go through high temperature, high organic load, high alkalinity and high salinity. It makes the perfect environment for some pathogens to develop in the rubber seal if proper cleaning in not done. A research conducted on samples collected from dishwashers of different brands used in different types of households in different continents found that 62% samples contain potentially pathogenic fungal flora. 56% of them contained black yeast Exophiala dermatitidis and E. phaeomuriformis which can cause potentially fatal infections in humans. The only way to keep yourself safe is to clean your dishwasher on regular basis, especially the rubber seal of doors.

Note: If you are planning to purchase a dishwasher then don't cancel it thinking about the fungus that can grow in door seals, because these fungus can affect only those who have a weak immune system. A little care of your dishwasher and your general health is sufficient to keep everything alright.

Smartphones affect your Eyes more than you Imagined

Most of us know that smartphones and other screens affect our eyes in an adverse way, but still we don't care. The basic reason behind this ignorance in lack of information and understanding. Eyes are the most used external organ in our body, yet most neglected as well. We care about our weight, obesity, blood pressure, biceps, hairs and lot of other things but eyes. In this age of smartphones, if we still continue this ignorance then both our generation and our kids will face issues related to vision.

Always remember that if you are staring a screen (such as TV or Smartphone) for more than 2 hours per day then you can easily develop some vision related issue sooner or later.

How smartphones affect our Eyes

Dry Eyes: On an average normal human eye blinks 15 to 20 times in a minute. But the blink rate is greatly reduced when we continuously focus on an object. Continuously staring at your smartphone for hours can affect your blink rate drastically. When we blink our eyes, a drop of tear wipes down our eye to clean its surface and keep it moist. Reduced blink rate causes dry eyes which is most common issue among smartphone users and can be treated easily by reducing smartphone usage.
Computer Vision Syndrome: This health issue is known since computer age, as it commonly occurred due to over usage of computers. But still this syndrome is affecting people due to over usage of smartphones. Symptoms of this disease are eye strain, dry eyes, headache, blurred vision, and neck and shoulder pain. Computer Vision Syndrome is also connected to some other facts listed below.
Blue Light : Blue light is often linked with eye problems because blue light regulates the release of melatonin. Release of melatonin tells our body that it is still daytime and thus usage of smartphones in night time disturbs our sleep, especially if you operate your smartphone just before sleeping. Apart from this side effect, blue light damages and kills the cells of retina, which is the worst side-effect of using smartphones.
Brightness: Brightness of screen is often set to maximum by most of the smartphone users, so that you can watch the screen clearly in daytime. More brightness also helps in viewing photos and videos clearly and thus preferred. But this more brightness put stress on our eyes.

Understand your Eye

Usually we ignore what our eyes try to say us in everyday life. We neglect the stress they go through due to over usage of smartphones and due to lack of relaxation. Minor symptoms like tiredness in eyes, minor headache, dryness in eyes, burning sensation and shoulder/neck pain should not be ignored as they can lead to some serious health issue with our eyes. Apart from consulting a doctor in case of such symptoms, you should also give some time to your eyes from your busy life. Our eyes don't demand a particular time slot, you can perform some simple yoga for eyes at any point of time in a day. These yoga exercises just take a few minutes and provide enough relaxation to your eyes for the remaining day.

Some tips for Smartphone users to keep their eyes healthy

  • Keep your Smartphone at about an arm's distance while operating
  • Use increased text size
  • Take frequent breaks while using your smart phone for long duration.
  • Don't use smartphone in a position where screen glare is caused due to some lighting in room.
  • Try to use low brightness settings.
  • Use smartphone in light, using it in a dark room can be harmful.

Yoga to Improve and Correct Eyesight : Yoga for Eyes

The value of correct eyesight is often understood when you face some problem with your eyesight or get spectacles to correct the focus. But still if you wake up on time then you can improve and correct your eyesight with the help of Yoga and balanced diet. Now a days  both kids and adults face issues with incorrect focus as both deal with increased on-screen time. Most of the time it occurs due to overuse of muscles in our face and eyes. Eyesight can be corrected by performing some yoga exercises to reduce the tension in these muscles. Here we have made a list of some yoga for eyes which can help in improving and correcting the eyesight.

Yoga to Improve and Correct Eyesight

Muscles in our eyes are eight time more stronger than necessary capacity. So we don't need to exercise them to strengthen them, but to stretch them, relax them and fine-tune them. All of these objectives are fully covered in yoga exercises. Yoga is not just something for our body, but for our mind and soul as well. Someone said "How you see is how you think", and this objective can be achieved through yoga, as yoga not just helps in improving your vision but also your mind and soul.

Yoga for Eyes


  • Blinking Yoga: Make your eyes wide-open and then blink them ten times very fast. Then close them for 20 seconds. Repeat this yoga for four times.
  • Palms on Eyes: This is a very simple yoga, just rub your palm till they become warm. Then put them on your closed eyes till they feel warm. This yoga gives a lot of relaxation and warmth to eye muscles.
  • Eye Rotation: In the beginning move your eyes from left to right and right to left for a few times. Then rotate them in a circular way. If you feel it hard to rotate it in a circle then rotate your finger in a circular way and look at it. Make sure that you don't move your neck while doing so. There is one more way to do the same yoga while sitting in a room. Move your sight among the four extremes, upper left, upper right, lower right and lower left.
  • Shoulder Stand (Sarvangna Asana): In this yoga you need to lie flat on your back and then lift your legs, waist and stomach upwards till your body become perpendicular to floor. In this pose your body will stand on your neck and shoulder with arms giving help to keep the body lifted upwards. In this pose blood flows towards eyes, optic nerve and brain.
  • Bee Buzzing (Bhramri Pranayam): Sit cross-legged or in a comfortable position, then place your fingers on your closed eyes in a horizontal way. Keep your lips sealed and make a bee buzzing sound while inhaling. Apply a little pressure on your eyeballs while making the buzzing sound.
  • Focus Shifting: Choose a distant and a nearby object around you and keep shifting the focus from one to other.
  • Distance Gazing: Focus your sight on a distant object around you and try to view it perfectly as if it is the only object available to look at. Concentrate on that object as if you are meditating. Do it till you feel comfortable. In the end thank the god for giving you these precious eyes to see his creations.


Our eyes are the most used external organ in our body, but we care about it the least. What we usually care about is our weight, stomach, legs, arms and hairs. But in this screen-age if we don't give enough attention to our eye-health then sooner or later we can easily face problems with our eyesight. Apart from enough sleep, a few minutes daily for our eyes is sufficient for them to stay fit for your whole life. So make these yoga for eyes, a part of your daily life and lifestyle.

Skin Allergy caused by own Sweat - Cholinergic Urticaria

Some people develop allergy to their own sweat. It usually occurs in warm weather with too much moisture, where sweat does not evaporate, or if a person exercise too much and remain in sweat for hours. In medical terms it is known as Cholinergic Urticaria (UC). The good thing about this allergy is that it can automatically resolve in few hours, just like it appears, if you cool the affected area with ice or cold water. But the bad news is that it can come back again if too much sweating happens again. Here we will discuss the reasons and treatment of Cholinergic Urticaria.

Cholinergic Urticaria (UC)

Cholinergic Urticaria (UC) is an allergy caused by nerve fibers in your sweat glands. If these nerves experience too much sweat and heat, then itchy red hives may appear on your skin. However some conditions give a good reason for UC to appear. Some of them are:

  • Hot Shower
  • Warm weather with too much humidity
  • Wearing tight and skinny clothes
  • Getting nervous and starting to sweat
  • Being in sweat for long durations
  • Stress
Note: Some people may get Cholinergic Urticaria as their body reacts against antibody in their own sweat called immunoglobulin-G (IgG). It can occur in both men and women.

Symptoms of Cholinergic Urticaria

  • Small red bumps with flares or circles
  • Itchy, tingly, and warm sensation
  • Skin can look swollen and blotchy
  • Affect chest, upper back, arms and face
  • Such hives usually fade away after few hours as your body cools down.

Diagnosis of Cholinergic Urticaria
A dermatologist or allergist can diagnose this condition. They may ask you about any food allergies or any other skin allergies in past. You may be asked to run a stationary bike to make you sweat and make the red bumps appear.

Treatment of Cholinergic Urticaria


Antihistamines such as Cetirizine, Loratadine, or Diphenhydramine can be used to treat CU. But of it does not work then you doctor may recommend some steroids for short duration.

Prevention from Cholinergic Urticaria

Prevention is the best advise given by any doctor while treating some allergy. Same thing is here.
  • Avoid warm or too humid environment
  • Wear loose clothes
  • If stress is the reason behind your allergy then try to avoid such situation that make you feel stressed.

Why Health Care is so Expensive in U.S.

U.S. Healthcare sector is worth more than $3 trillion. If we consider it as a country, then it will be fifth largest economy. This amount is more than twice, what is spent in any other developed country. However U.S. is top spender in medical sector, but its healthcare system has never ranked in top 25 countries. Why is it so ? U.S. spends the most on healthcare sector, but its healthcare is not even in top 25. There must be some reason behind that. Here we will try to analyse the reasons behind that. This article might be an eye opener for some of us.
On an average every person in U.S. spends around $8000 every year on healthcare expenses. It includes insurance premiums as well, but still it is a large sum for a family with lesser income resources.

Why Health Care is so expensive in U.S. ?


  • Higher Administrative Cost: 25% of total healthcare cost is spent on administrative sector. The count of billing clerks in some hospitals is far more than number of beds in that hospital. No other country employs so much administrative staff.
  • Higher Drugs Cost: In U.S. the government have lesser power to control drug prices, while some other developed countries can control the drug prices. If U.S. government make some laws to negotiate drug prices then this factor can be easily handled, but it will negatively influence the earnings of some top drug manufacturers.
  • Doctors are afraid: Doctors in U.S. don't directly prescribe the medicines without doing all necessary tests, even when they are sure about disease (due to their experience). They remain fearful to get sued for prescribing medicines which should be given only after positive test results. It cause additional expenses on defensive medicine and higher expenses on medical tests. It also increases the duration of treatment.
  • Specialists are preferred: U.S. population prefers to get treated by a specialist instead of a primary-care doctor, even when specialist is not necessary. It increases the treatment cost. In other countries people visit a specialist only when recommended by a  primary-care doctor.
  • More usage of technology: People of U.S. believe in technology much more than any other country. Mammograms are used thrice, MRI are used two-and-a-half times, and C-sections are done 31% more than any other country. It increases the equipment cost at every medical facility and ultimately gets paid by end user.
  • Branding in Medical Sector: Some top most medical facilities can demand much more for the same treatment which is available at lower cost at a lesser known medical facility. Everyone thinks that more price means better treatment and thus overall income of medical sector increases. Sometimes prices are made depending on who is going to pay it.

Affordable Care Act (ACA) has helped in lowering the medical expenses, but still a lot is necessary to get U.S. a good rank in WHO rankings. The higher medical cost often make some people move towards medical tourism to get treated at lower cost and get a better treatment.

Is Green Tea really better than ordinary Black Tea

Green tea has recently emerged as a healthy alternative of normal tea. Even some doctors have started prescribing green tea. A number of people are already using it for weight loss. Is there are truth in all those beliefs. Some people think that drinking a tea without sugar or milk, reduces the daily intake of excess calories, which results in weight loss. Some believe that it is the placebo effect that improves health and some other activities done along with green tea, which reduces the weight. We will try to find which of the above statements is more valid.

Green Tea vs Black Tea


  • Most of the people don't know the fact that both green and black tea are produced from same plant named Camellia sinensis. Their color is different due to the processing difference. In production of Black Tea, the leaves undergo crushing and fermenting process, which causes its different flavor. Green Tea is not fermented.
  • Some people think that green tea is caffeine-free, while it is not. 
  • Both types of these teas contain antioxidants. Types of antioxidants may differ, but both are beneficial. According to a research both types of tea contain 10 times more antioxidants than fruits and vegetables.
  • Some researchers have proved that tea improves metabolism and helps in removal of toxins from body.
  • Both Green and black tea blocks the DNA Damage caused due to smoking, which reduces the chances of cancer. Biggest proof of this finding are nations like Japan, which are considered as the biggest tea drinkers. Cases of Heart Diseases and Cancer are comparatively low in these countries. However some people disagree with this fact as less cancer risk is also connected to lesser obesity in Japan, which is a direct factor for heart diseases and cancer.
  • Some people believe that lesser obesity in Japan is due to popularity of tea. This fact might be the one which made people think that green tea decreases obesity. Here we should not forget that people of japan are also known for their hard work, which is also a factor behind lesser obesity.

Why Green Tea is considered better than Black Tea ?

  • The basic reason is that green tea is less processed. Today people tend to go towards herbal, which means less processed. So green tea is getting more popular as something herbal and more natural.
  • Second reason is the preparation method. Preparation of black tea includes other ingredients like sugar and milk, which increases the calorie value. But green tea preparation don't need any other ingredients, which keeps its calorie value low with same amount of antioxidants.
  • Third reason is its taste, which is considered better by most of the people even without using sugar. Back tea is slightly hard to drink without sugar.
  • Some researches have also shown that usage of green tea reduces weight, protects you from several types of cancer, delays onset of diabetes and many more.
  • Last and the best reason is that green tea is recommended by dietitians and medical practitioners. 

Does Green Tea help in Weight Loss ?
Yes it does, but how ?

  • The very first thing that green tea do is improving your metabolism, which reduces the chances of fat deposition.
  • Second factor is usage of no sugar in preparation of green tea, so no extra calories.
  • Third thing is motivation. Usually a person who is using green tea, also implement some other dietary changes to reduce weight or lifestyle changes such as regular workout. These activities also help in weight reduction a lot.

Now you know that both green and black tea are good for health, but green tea have some added benefits. When it comes to weight loss, we would suggest you to balance your diet and improve lifestyle along with green tea to get better results in lesser time.

Cigarettes are killing our Kids

The title might be suggesting you that here we are going to talk about passive smoking or secondhand smoking, but what we are going to tell here is much more worst than that. Some smokers might save their kids from passive smoking by smoking outdoor, but the can't save their kids from the danger that every kid on this planet is facing due to smoking. Ranging from production of cigarettes to their disposal in a dustbin, everything is harming kids in some way. What we are going to discuss might open eyes of a few people.

Child labor in Tobacco farms

Child labor in tobacco farms is not only stealing their childhood but put also taking more generations into poverty. 1.3 million children, below the age of 14 were working in tobacco fields in 2011 and by now the count must have increased. Most of it is happening in backward countries where no law can be implemented effectively. These kids are basically working for cigarettes of people living in developed and developing countries. They are also putting their health at risk and earning nothing as they are not paid for that, but still work as a helping hand for full day. Bigger Cigarette manufacturers don't take the blame of themselves and provides some misleading facts. According to them they are just purchasing their crops and who is employed in the farms is not their responsibility, and they ask them not to use child labor. But the truth is that these manufacturers are utilizing the poverty of these farmers and absence of laws against child labor in those countries. What shames the humanity is that, when a news reported asked one of those kids that why he is working here then he answered that he is here to help his mother and father who are working so hard.
Some researchers find it as an unnoticed scandal, as the top players are earning millions, which the labor is not even getting enough money to feed himself and their kid (who also works as an unpaid labor). Such task is not just limited to boys, as even girls and their mothers also work there.

Poisoning Ground, Water and Food

I have seen people throwing cigarette butts on ground or drains, thinking that they are biodegradable and will ultimately fertilize the soil. What these people don't know is that they are highly toxic and poisoning both ground and water. This poisoning is also killing millions of birds and fishes every year as they eat it assuming some kind of food. Most of the cigarette butts contain tiny plastic pieces, which takes at least 5 to 10 years to biodegrade. Apart from it the chemicals present in cigarette butts intoxicate soil and water. Even underground water is intoxicated. Greenery on such soil is also intoxicated, which is ultimately eaten humans. Some dairy animals also eat that intoxicated greenery, which also land in our plates as some dairy product. All of this toxin is also landing into the plates of our kids. If you or your family is fond of sea food, then be aware that most of the sea food is also intoxicated due to those cigarette butts and ultimately landing into you and your kid's stomach.

Such pollution of our food might not be harming adults but kids must be getting affected. The affect may be lower immunity or bad digestion. So just saving your kids from passive smoking might not be sufficient for them. Convince people to quit smoking. It will not just help you kid or grand-kids from further intoxication but will also save millions of other kids who are risking their health and childhood in tobacco farms.

Environment is paying cost for Human Smoking

Environment of our planet Earth is not an asset for only human use. Different species living on land and water are equally affected by the human behavior. Smoking of 6 trillion cigarettes every year not just harm humans but these innocent species as well. You might have considered smoking as a bad habit, but the facts provided here will change your view from "just a bad habit" to "an inhuman act". If you are a smoker then it will motivate you to quit, but if you are not then you will get some good facts to motivate others to not smoke.

How our Environment is paying cost for Human Smoking


  • 300,000,000 kilograms of Nicotine waste is produced every year, which is highly toxic for all forms of life. Most of it is dumped in waterways or soil and ultimately it pollutes the underground water then plants, which are consumed by man and dairy animals.
  • 1000 deaths and 3000 injuries are caused every year in US due to fires caused by smoking. Most of the affected people are either kids or non-smokers.
  • About 17,000 people worldwide die each year because of fires started by cigarette lighters or discarded burning cigarettes.
  • 2262 million kilograms of manufacturing waste and 209 million kilograms of chemical waste is created every year while these cigarettes are manufactured.
  • More then 5 trillion cigarette butts, which are not properly disposed, land on soil and water ways. A single cigarette butt can easily kill small fish or bird.
  • Consumption of cigarettes butts by marine animals and birds results in death of millions of marine animals and birds every year. It includes fishes, seals, tortoise and birds, who eat these butts assuming it as some food. If you are a vegetarian smoker, then you should regret it more.
  • 5.3 million hectares of fertile land is used every year to grow tobacco. Once used for this purpose, it no longer supports any other crop due to heavy usage of chemical pesticides. 
  • If this land is used to grow other crops then it can feed 20 million people every year.
  • 1,800,000 tonnes of packaging waste, composed of paper, ink, cellophane, foil and glue is thrown by smokers every year.
  • 64 million metric tons of carbon dioxide is produced every year in manufacturing of cigarettes.
  • 2,600,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and about 5,200,000 tonnes of methane is produced every year due to smoking.
  • One tree is cut for every 300 cigarettes, which is used to make paper for its rolling and packing.
  • Thus it accounts for cutting of 20 billion trees every year. 
  • 600 million trees are cut and burned annually to dry and cure tobacco leaves. 
  • 440 million tonnes of carbon dioxide can be consumed by these trees every year, if they are not cut.

We hope that these facts will inspire some people to quit smoking and don't let the above burden fall on their shoulders. Quitting not just helps you, but helps whole earth in being a better place for all species.

Calculate the Damage done by your Smoking


Only a smoker who is ready to face the truth will dare to use this calculator. This calculator will find all the stats of damage done by your smoking habit. Usually smokers think that they are damaging only their own body (some don't even think so), but the truth is much more than that. The figures used in this "Smoking Damage Calculator" are collected from some well researched articles published on some other website which are available in the reference section, so can actually believe that the figures presented here are correct.

Calculate the Damage done by your Smoking

Are you a Smoker ? Read it and Answer !

Whenever a non-smoker asks somebody to quit smoking, the very first thought that comes in mind of the smoker is "I am harming myself, not others. I don't want to quit ! Why the hell you want me to". Non-smokers ask somebody to quit either because they care for him/her or they know that ultimately smoking by anybody is harming everybody indirectly. Most of you will think that i am talking about secondhand smoke or passive smoking, but what i am going to describe here is much more than that.

The number of people killed due to Cigarette are more than those killed by guns every year. Guns at least need licence in most countries but cigarettes don't. Those killed by cigarettes are not just smokers, but even non-smoker adults, kids, pets, dairy animals, fishes and other marine life. All of then are not killed by passive smoking but by the litter caused by smokers.

Do you ever wonder where does the cigarette butts and packs end up. Most of the smokers throw them anywhere they want, and most of the cigarette butts end up either in soil or water ways. Most of the smokers think that these cigarette butts are bio-degradable, while they are not, as they contain some amount of plastic. It takes them 5 to 10 years to dispose themselves depending on where the end up.

Some of you might not be aware of the fact that cigarette butts are toxic waste, and thus need to be disposed properly. It is one of the most visible litter in US. You will be surprised to know that 1,362,741 cigarettes/butts, 18,555 cigarette lighters, 74,399 cigar tips, and 36,397 tobacco packages were removed from waterways of United States in 2009.
Chemicals leaching from single cigarette butt can kill a fish in a 1 Liter jar of water.  
One tree is cut to make paper for rolling and packing of every 300 cigarettes. Deforestation is also done to get land to grow tobacco. The land once used for tobacco farming can't be utilized for any other crop, as it become very toxic due to use of pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals used in the cultivation of tobacco. Some trees are even cut to burn wood to dry the tobacco leaves. Ultimately it is one of the biggest causes of deforestation.

Deforestation is also done due to the fires caused by discarded burning cigarettes or cigarette butts. 17000 people die every year due to these fires and thousands are left homeless. A large number of these people are non-smokers or kids.

Smoking globally emits nearly 2.6 billion kilograms of carbon dioxide, 5.2 billion kilograms of methane and 209 kilograms of chemical waste into the atmosphere each year. The air pollution caused by forest fires due to cigarette butts is not included in these figures.

How Cigarettes are killing everything we know ?
Cigarettes are actually killing our ecosystem. Cigarette contains about 600 chemicals, 69 of which have been proven to cause cancer. It can produce over 7,000 chemicals when lit. The worst fact about these chemicals is that they are highly soluble in water.
All of the cigarette litter contaminates soil and water. Birds and pets like cats and dogs ingest cigarette butts and face serious health consequences like tremors, vomiting, respiratory failure, cancer and even death. It kills and disease the marine life as well. Fishes and other marine animals either get get killed by them of face health issues due to contaminated water.
Ultimately the toxins come back to human food. Grass growing in contaminated soil is eaten by cows, their milk and dairy products are used by us. Most of the contaminated marine animals also get served in our plates as most of them are caught from sea shores, which are dumping ground for cigarette litter.
Just one cigarette butt is dangerous if ingested by a human, a whole cigarette may be lethal if ingested.
Proper disposal of cigarette litter is necessary. Chemicals used in cigarettes begin to leach arsenic, acetone, ammonia, benzene, cadmium, formaldehyde, lead, and toluene when introduced to water.

I hope that after reading this article no smoker will ever say that he/she is only harming himself. He/she is actually killing everything we have seen, even some innocent kids.

How much does smoking kill you ? Calculate Yourself !

They have their own reasons, but here we have got a simple calculator for them. This simple calculator will ask you about your age, smoking habits and simple health. In return it will tell how much time you have got to celebrate life and how much more time you may get by quitting smoking. I hope it will help or inspire some people to quit smoking.
