Drinking too much milk bad for bones?

Bones constantly take up and release calcium throughout life – in both, men and women. However, post-menopausal women are more susceptible to osteoporosis or brittle-bone disease because declining estrogen levels impair the skeleton’s calcium retaining ability. So the most common advice offered to women is to eat plenty of calcium-rich food, particularly, milk and milk-products.

Can dengue fever be transmitted sexually?

May 16th is observed as National Dengue Day in India  to raise awareness about this dreaded mosquito borne disease.  Dengue fever is a viral disease, mostly spread through the bite of mosquitoes, particularly by aedes aegypti mosquito. I have already written an exhaustive post about dengue fever, it's prevention and home-remedies and measures to be followed if one contracts dengue and is recuperating. The post Convalescence - the recovery period after illness might also be helpful for anyone who's recovering from vector  borne diseases such as dengue, chikungunya , malaria or for that matter any other illness also. So do glance through that too.

Myriad causes are responsible for this and we have already discussed some of it in the post "Air pollution possibly delays menarche - A surprising result of a study." In a large study involving involving 50,000 postmenopausal women in the UK, Australia, Japan and Scandinavia, it was found that women were 31 percent more likely to go through menopause early - between the ages of 40-44 if they started menstruating before their 12th birthday.

Blood Group and Health

Many of you may have heard of the "blood group diet", a fad among celebrities, like Demi Moore, Cheryl Cole and Elizabeth Hurley. Blood group diet followers believe that different blood groups process foods differently and that eating food compatible with your blood type will make you healthier. On the other hand , eating foods that don't agree with your blood type might lead to health problems. While there seems to be little scientific evidence to support this, there certainly seems to be a correlation between blood group types, your health and overall well-being.

Contact Lenses That Get Darker In Sunlight

Walking in bright sunlight can be torturous for those wearing contact lenses, as it reportedly makes many wearers ultra-sensitive  to strong light. Yes, it's always a better idea to wear protective sunglasses when you are out in the bright sun with contacts in your eyes. But its even better if you get to wear contact lenses which get darker when you are out in the sun similar to some of those transition prescription eye glasses which get darker. The good news is that such type of transition lenses may soon become reality with the US FDA  having  approved of transition contact lenses.
