Abstract:-

Approximately, two-thirds of premature deaths in adults, and three-out-of-four of all adult deaths are attributable to non-communicable diseases, which are mainly due to cardiovascular diseases (CVD), the leading cause of both mortality and disability worldwide. As obesity, independently identified as the fifth leading cause of global death worldwide, is a major modifiable risk factor for various chronic metabolic illnesses including CVD, proper timely assessment of obesity, in particular regional obesity, can prevent the rapid progression of the disease. In this backdrop, a study has been carried out to assess the impact of Bharatnatyam, an Indian traditional classical dance form, on select anthropometric obesity indices (namely BMI, BF%, WC, WHR, WHtR, SAD, BRI) determiningCV health status. Measurements were obtained from consenting volunteers having a minimum experience of five years in that dance form and practicing it at least five times a week on and average for half an hour period. Data were compared with suitable control group individuals with no such involvement in any form of dancing or other physical activities. It has been found that individuals belonging to Bharatnatyamdancing group category have significant (P<0.01) favorable values of measured parameters and obesity indices adjudged anthropometrically compared to their non-dancing counterparts. Hence it may be concluded that receiving training on Bharatnatyam dancing and regular practice thereof may prevent the onset of obesity and thereby progression of CVD.

Thenepalli Thriveni* Climate Change Mitigation and Sustainability Division, Korea Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources (KIGAM), 124 Gwahagno, Yuseong gu, Daejeon 34132, Korea.

Abstract:-

Globally, in 2012, 89% of the people had access to water suitable for drinking. Nearly 4 billion had access to tap water while another 2.3 billion had access to wells or public taps. 1.8 billion people still use an unsafe drinking water source which may be the presence of excess minerals such as calcium carbonates, magnesium carbonates, and dolomite. Many International organizations such as United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), World Health Organization (WHO), and European Union (EU) have played a key role in developing regulations for many metal species found in drinking water. The hardness water causes many public health safety issues especially on children’s and new born babies. Water hardness causes to the risk of atopic dermatitis among children’s and other kind of skin diseases are existed. In this paper, we reported the public health safety issues from water hardness.

CAUSES FOR INCREASE IN BONE RELATED PROBLEMS IN INDIA

Jyoti Chahal1 and Rekha Jalandra2 1Assistant professor, Department of Zoology, Hindu Girls College, Sonepat, India. 2Assistant professor, Department of Zoology, Hindu Girls College, Sonepat, India.

Abstract:-

Bone is a homeostatic and metabolically active organ receiving about 10 per cent of the cardiac output. Despite of plenty of sunshine, vitamin D rich animal products and availability of milk and other Calcium rich plant foods throughout year; bone related problems are more than expected in India. Such figures are further increasing at high pace. The common bone related problems prevalent in India are osteoporosis, osteopenia, neck pain, backache, joint pain, wrist pain. The problems occur in both sexes (male and female) but more frequently in females and become more prevalent with advancing age. Even toddlers were also reported to have weak bone health. The present study is an effort to put several factors like nutritional deficiency, inadequate exposure to sun, menopause in women, excessive consumption of tea or coffee and sedentary lifestyle to a common platform to view their effect on bone related problems. We found a strong connection of these factors with musculoskeletal problems among Indian population.
