Nuts – A healthy treat

A couple of studies have found a correlation between relatively high nut consumption (two or more servings a week) and avoidance of weight gain and obesity. Researchers at Harvard–affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center reported results in 2010 from a small (20 volunteers) study that showed walnuts at breakfast gave people a pre–lunch feeling of fullness that might make it easier to eat less. Ultimately, weight loss is about reining in calorie consumption (and increasing physical activity). But if nuts make people feel full, perhaps they can help lower calorie counts overall, even as they add to those totals.

Nuts are dense little packages of fat and protein, with most of the fat being the healthful, unsaturated kind. They don’t contribute much in the way of vitamins but make up for it by supplying respectable amounts of potassium, magnesium, and several other required minerals.

Dieters have tended to stay away from nuts because the fat content makes them a high–calorie food. It doesn’t help that we tend to shovel them in as snacks, not as part of meals. But nuts contain very little carbohydrate, so they’re showing up in low–carb diets.

India sees 50% decline in new HIV infections: UN report

According to the United Nations 2011 AIDS report, there has been a 50% decline in the number of new HIV infections in the last 10 years in India. Close to 1.2 million people were newly infected with HIV in 2009, out of an estimated 2.3 million people living with the virus in the country. More than 0.4 million HIV people are on anti–retroviral therapy. The report also reported a 25% drop in the number of new HIV infections globally.
Mother–to–child transmission is still the problem area, with maximum cases being reported from the south and the north–eastern part of the country. "We are coordinating with the state and Central governments to reach out to pregnant women in these areas under their National Rural Health Mission. Institutional deliveries need to be encouraged so that pregnant women are tested for the disease as a preventive measure," said Charles Gilks, UNAIDS country coordinator. To combat the spread of the infection, the UN Secretary General in the report has recommended measures like involving youth, making treatment more cost–effective and focusing on women and girls. The report was launched by UN Secretary–General, Ban Ki–moon, in Nairobi on Thursday. It was released in India on Friday. (Source: Hindustan Times, April 02, 2011)

Shed dead skin cells

It’s widely known that one of the best ways to keep your skin looking young and healthy is by getting rid of dead skin cells. As your skin regenerates, the top layer of dead skin must be shed in order to give way for younger, healthier looking skin. Exfoliation is one of the ways to do this, but requires some time and effort you may not have. Allantoin helps to naturally shed dead skin and gives the outer layer of skin a youthful appearance. As you can see, keeping the skin looking young takes more than just daily washing or applying moisturizer. The battle against aging skin is never ending, but with the right approach – you can feel great about your appearance.

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Prachi Garg)

Don’t give up

Winston Churchill is credited with the shortest speech on record. It was presented to a college graduating class. He approached the podium, looked out over the audience and said slowly . . .

. . “Never, never, never, give up.” Having made his point he then sat down.

It was probably the most profound advice these graduates ever received.

So much of success is simply not giving up. Remember, the only time you fail is when you stop trying.

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Additional Prof, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

What is Hotson v East Berkshire Health Authority case– (1987) 2 All ER 909?

This was a case of alleged medical negligence and compensation where the extent of the hip injuries to a 13 year–old boy was not diagnosed for five days. At the age of 20 years, there was deformity of the hip joint, restricted mobility and permanent disability. The judge found that even if the diagnosis had been made correctly, there was still a 75% risk of the plaintiff's disability developing, but that the medical staff’s breach of duty had turned that risk into inevitability, thereby denying the plaintiff a 25% chance of a good recovery.

Damages included an amount of £11,500 representing 25% of the full value of the damages awardable for the plaintiff's disability. On appeal to the Lords, the question was whether the cause of the injury was the fall or the health authority’s negligence in delaying treatment, since if the fall had caused the injury the negligence of the authority was irrelevant in regard to the plaintiff’s disability. Because the judge had held that on the balance of probabilities, even correct diagnosis and treatment would not have prevented the disability from occurring, it followed that the plaintiff had failed on the issue of causation. It was therefore irrelevant to consider the question of damages.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr M Narayana Reddy)

Does the MCI specify the duty hours and duties, especially as regards the clinical/non–clinical and teaching/non–teaching duties, for a faculty member in a medical college?

Ans: The MCI has the authority to fix the minimum standards with regard to the duty hours and the nature of duties for the medical college teachers. There is no discrimination between the Clinical and Non–Clinical Teachers. All are the Teaching Faculty of the Medical Colleges. The colleges have the authority to increase over and above the MCI’s recommendations.

  • The minimum effective teaching days per annum are 240.
  • The daily teaching hours that include the Ward Postings, Practicals, Demonstrations, Seminars, Group discussions, etc. are 7. With the lunch break of one hour, the working hours are 8 per day.
  • The daily Teaching and Training Time including the one–hour lunch break of the Medical College is either from 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. or from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
  • The daily Out Patient and In–Patient posting hours for the students, from the 3rd to 9th semesters, is 3 hours.
  • The Didactic Lectures should be restricted to one third of the time schedule.
  • The Practicals, Demonstrations, Group discussions, etc., must be not less than two thirds of the time schedule.
 
    Obesity Update

Dr. Parveen Bhatia and Dr. Pulkit Nandwani

Obesity in Women

Obesity may boost odds of aggressive breast cancer in older women

Obesity is known to boost the risk of estrogen–fueled breast cancer in women past menopause. Now, new research suggests a link between postmenopausal obesity and an especially aggressive type of breast cancer that does not depend on estrogen to grow. The long–known link between obesity and estrogen–positive breast cancers has been attributed to higher exposure to estrogen in fat tissue. After menopause, most of a woman’s estrogen comes from fat tissue. The more fat, the more estrogen exposure.

In a new study that looked at body mass index (BMI), a measurement that takes into account height and weight, women with the highest BMIs had a 35 percent increased risk of developing the aggressive cancer known as triple–negative compared to those with the lowest BMIs. They also had a 39 percent higher risk of developing other breast cancers. Triple–negative breast cancer is marked by a lack of estrogen, progesterone and HER2 protein expression, hence the name. Only about 10 or 20 percent of breast cancers are triple–negative, the outcome is poor because of its aggressiveness and the lack of targeted treatments.

The exact reasons are unknown, but obesity increases markers of inflammation and levels of insulin and insulin–like growth factor. All of those things could contribute to the growth of the breast tumor. The fat cells may set up an environment conducive to the growth of breast cancer cells, beyond the effect of the estrogen.

    Lab Update

(Dr Arpan Gandhi and Dr Navin Dang)

Lactate dehydrogenase (LD or "LDH")

Increase of LD activity in serum may occur in any injury that causes loss of cell cytoplasm. More specific information can be obtained by LD isoenzyme studies. Also, elevation of serum LD is observed due to in vivo effects of anesthetic agents, clofibrate, dicumarol, ethanol, fluorides, imipramine, methotrexate, mithramycin, narcotic analgesics, nitrofurantoin, propoxyphene, quinidine, and sulfonamides.
Decrease of serum LD is probably not clinically significant.

There are two main analytical methods for measuring LD: pyruvate–>lactate and lactate–>pyruvate. Assay conditions (particularly temperature) vary among labs. The reference range for the assaying laboratory must be carefully studied when interpreting any individual result.

Many European labs assay alpha–hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (HBD or HBDH), which roughly equates to LD isoenzymes 1 and 2 (the fractions found in heart, red blood cells, and kidney).

 
    Medi Finance Update

(Dr GM Singh)

I am buying a property in India from an owner residing in USA. Should I deduct tax while making payment?

Yes, under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, where any payment is made to Non Resident for a sum which is taxable in India, such payment cannot be made without deducting taxes. In case you have any doubt regarding the amount on which TDS is to be made, you may file an application with the officer handling non–resident taxation who will pass an order determining the TDS to be made. Alternatively, if the recipient feels that the TDS is more he may file an application with his Assessing officer for lower deduction.

1. I am really thankful to you and your colleagues for starting emedinews for keeping us updated. This is ‘News in Nutshell’. Dr. Senguttuvan.

2. Dear Dr Aggarwal, I wish to congratulate you and emedinews for making this news bulletin a voice of doctors. The readership is increasing day by day and now it is also being noticed by MCI and Govt bodies. The exit test making an exit is itself a proof of this. I wish Medical Council of India circulates its intention through emedinews before they take any decision. We have been reading many things through the daily newspapers. That forum is not the right one. Doctor- Pharma interaction and the new ethical rules published in newspapers (TOI dated 1.4.11) is a point. This type of news in lay press is unwarranted. One can take the horse to the water but can not make it drink. There are no two opinions regarding the need to have ethical practices. But the implementation and the way the things are being made out is not the way to go. Already there are ethics and the Hippocratic Oath to be followed by all the doctors. The existing rules say that it is the duty of doctors to expose the black sheep amongst them. We have enough laws against corruption in this country. Did they help to eradicate the corruption? Making rules now regarding ethics will create another litigation process. The doctor against whom the MCI will take action will go to court and we will have another long drawn procedure. I suggest that MCI should take suggestions from IMA members and start a debate through emedinews regarding the ethics and need to break the nexus between pharma and unscrupulous doctors. Sincerely: Dr R S Bajaj, Consultant Pediatrician.

8th World Fellowship of Religions and 11th Perfect Health Parade Inaugurated

Inaugurating the 8th World Fellowship of Religions and 11th Perfect Health Parade, Shri Pawan Kumar Bansal, Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Science & Technology and Earth Sciences, said that the country is going through a phase of global warming as well as ethnic crisis. Events like tsunami, earthquakes etc. represent the sum total of negative energies in the mind of the people and the collective consciousness of the society. If people started living a Satyugi life, the so–called Kalyuga can be converted into Satyuga, at least in India.

The conference was organized by World Fellowship of Religions in association with Heart Care Foundation of India, Dept of Health Govt. of Delhi, Delhi Medical Association and various spiritual organizations, schools, colleges, public and private sector undertakings.

Delivering the keynote address, Dr. S.Y. Quraishi, Chief Election Commissioner of India said that even Islam mentions the role of family planning and HIV prevention. Guest of Honour, Mr Prithvi Raj Sawhney, Mayor of Delhi said that all Dharma gurus should come forward and meet on regular basis to sensitize the public about preventable diseases.

Over 1000 scholars, dharma gurus, students, teachers and general public participated in the event organized at Maulana Azad Medical College. The 11th Perfect Health Parade was also flagged off from the Maulana Azad Medical College venue which after covering a distance of over 60 km returned to Maulana Azad Medical College at 5 pm. The tableau carried various health messages.

The brainchild of Late Acharya Sushil Muni Ji Maharaj, World Fellowship of Religions conference is being organized for the last 60 years with the purpose of uniting all dharma gurus under one roof with the basic aim of coming out with a White Paper and policies to spread the message of peace and safe environment in the society.

Acharya Dr. Sadhvi Sadhna Ji Maharaj, Chairperson of World Fellowship of Religions and Padma Shri and Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, Vice Chairman in a joint statement said that efforts should be made towards a safe and healthy environment for all humans, animals, plants and birds.

S. Buta Singh, Former Union Home Minister and Chief Guest Dr H T Sangliana, Vice Chairman, of the National Commission for Minorities, Govt. of India, in a joint statement said that all the rituals should be discussed and understood in greater details with their scientific facts and then one should follow them.

The conference was also addressed by Mr Mahender Singh Daga the chairman of the 8th conference of World Fellowship of Religions and Mr Dal Chand Ji Jain, Former MP.

Dharma gurus who participated and spoke on the occasion were H H Dr A K Merchant, H H Sant Shri Avtar Singh ji Maharaj, H H Dadi Mistry, H H Maha Mantra Das, H H Imam Umar Ahmad Ilasi, H H Father Thomas, H H Arch Vincent M. Concessao, H H Swamy Shri Chidanand Maharaj, H H Swamy Dayanand Saraswati, H H Ezekiel Issac, Malekar, H H Goswamy Sushil Maharaj, H H Lama Lob Jang, H H Maulana, Dr Mufti Md. Mukram, H H Maulana Md Rafiq Kasmi, H H Sant Rajinder Singh and H H Maha Sati Sarla.

For the first time, all the dharma gurus and doctors from all ‘pathies’ participated in a discussion on "Science behind Rituals". The experts who participated were Sh. Bahudev Sharma, Dr. Monika Rastogi, Padma Shri Sh. Shyam Singh Shashi, Prof. Som Dutt Dikshit, Sh. Jathedar Rachhpal Singh, Sh. Surya Prakash Kapoor, Dr Anupam Sethi, Dr Diwan Harish Chand, Dr Ishwar V. Basavarddi, Dr Ravindra Nagar, Dr Ramesh Babu, Dr R S Jasan, Dr R N Wahi, Dr Rakhee Mehra, Dr S C Manchanda, Dr S K Tripathy, Dr S N Yadav, Dr Shashi Bala and Dr V K Chauhan.

The experts said that all the Indian rituals were so designed so as to acquire health over a period of time. Giving example, the experts said that the Indian tradition of a "Vrat" or "Fast" if t observed on regular basis; can prevent problems of iron deficiency, diabetes, obesity, blood pressure etc. can be tackled in no time. The ‘vrat’ were basically meant to restrict intake of refined carbohydrates once every five days which is the main cause of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.

The dharma gurus also passed various resolutions including their commitment to spread the message "to stop Ethnic Crisis", "Say No to Female Feticide" and "to curb Global Warming."

The World Fellowship of Religions has in the last four decades consistently endeavoured to bring the policies of different faiths together on a common platform to evolve mutually agreed programmes to further the objectives of invigorating the feeling of oneness and unity. In oneness and unity alone lies the key to ensure stable peace and prosperity for humanity in conjunction with preservation and conservation of the life sustaining environment.
