Sugar should be regulated like alcohol, tobacco

Like alcohol and tobacco, sugar is a toxic, addictive substance that should be highly regulated with taxes, laws on where and to whom it can be advertised, and even age–restricted sales, says a team of UCSF scientists in Nature.

For both alcohol and tobacco, there is robust evidence that gentle ‘supply side’ control strategies which stop far short of all–out prohibition – taxation, distribution controls, age limits – lower both consumption of the product and the accompanying health harms. The experts have proposed adding taxes to processed foods that contain any form of added sugars.

Over the past 50 years, sugar consumption has tripled worldwide. That’s also helped contribute to the obesity epidemic – so much so that there are 30 percent more obese people in this world than there are malnourished people.

Sugar is ‘toxic,’ particularly in excessive amounts, noting that it poses dangers similar to those of alcohol. Fructose, specifically, can harm the liver and overconsumption has been linked with all the diseases involved with metabolic syndrome: hypertension, high triglycerides, insulin resistance, and diabetes.

Moolchand Observed World Cancer Day With Noted Celebrities And Classical Maestros

Moolchand Medcity, New Delhi, February 04, 2012: Moolchand observed World Cancer Day with the noted celebrities of cinema, literature and the few classical maestros to promote awareness for Cancer disease which is related to the amount of stress we take in today’s lifestyle. A little amount of stress is good as it gives us a feeling of competition and innovation; but chronic stress can increase the risk of diseases such as depression, heart disease and even cancer.

"It has been noticed that the incidence of cancer is on the rise and most of it could be related to the changing life style in the Indian society. The women in today’s world are becoming more and more career oriented and paying less interest to womanhood. Late marriages and child bearing, not breast feeding the baby puts women at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. On top of this, increasing amount of work related stress and improper food habits makes your body susceptible for developing cancer" says Padmashri and Dr. B C Roy National Awardee Dr. K K Aggarwal, Consultant, Medicine and Cardiology, Moolchand Heart Hospital, New Delhi.

"Daily stress affects the immune system of the body and reduces the capacity to fight against the sexually transmitted diseases and thus can cause cancer in them. Also some environmental and lifestyle factors like diet deficiency in antioxidants, smoking, excess intake of alcohol, lack of exercise, etc. are also associated with increased risk of cancer" says the noted cinestar, classical dancer and MP, Dr. Vaijayanti Mala Bali who came to Moolchand Medcity on World Cancer Day to promote awareness for lifestyle diseases and encourage women to be happy from within. "This helps in staying them disease free for long by doing light exercises, say dancing and walking on regular basis" she added.

Present on the occasion at Moolchand, Mr. Jwala Prasad, noted Music Director, Ms. Suman Devgan, noted Singer, Ms. Rekha Gupta, noted Poetry Writer (mother of cinestar Isha Gupta), Ms. Roshni Geeta Thakur, noted Writer and Mr. Asrat, noted Kathak Dancer, jointly stated the slogan, "Be happy and stress free to stay away from lifestyle diseases for long".

State sets target to bring down infant deaths to 30

JAIPUR: The target of bringing the infant mortality rate (IMR) down to 30 till 2017 is a daunting task for the state government. IMR is the number of deaths of babies under one year of age per 1,000 live births. A lot has to be done in rural Rajasthan, where the IMR is still above 60, which is fourth highest in the entire country. In rural Rajasthan, 61 infant deaths happened per 1,000 births in 2010. But, in urban areas it is 31 per 1,000 live births, the latest Union health ministry data showed. The IMR in rural areas of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Orissa is 67, 64 and 63, respectively. Rajasthan is fourth in the list with an IMR of 61.The total IMR in the state is 55 but by 2017 the state government has to bring it down to 30. Though the newly released figures, which showed decrease in IMR from 59 to 55 in comparison to last year, encouraged the medical, health and family welfare department but it has also hinted that it is a long battle to fight as the previous efforts produced very little progress.

Docs contradict NCAA on sickle cell trait tests

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is challenging the major college sports organization over its policy on sickle cell trait testing for athletes. In a new position statement, ASH declared that athletes need not be tested for or disclose sickle cell trait status before participating in sporting events –– directly contradicting current National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules that require sickle cell testing and disclosure. Instead, the society recommended preventive interventions, similar to those used by the U.S. Army since 1996, that would protect all student-athletes. These interventions include: (Source: Medscape Medical News)

Why do we wear Marks (Tilak and the Like) on the forehead?

The tilak is a mark of auspiciousness and invokes a feeling of sanctity in the wearer and others. It is recognized as a religious mark. Its form and color vary according to one’s caste, religious sect or the form of the Lord worshipped.

    Infertility Update

(Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

How can the damage be fixed?

The surgeon will try to cut the scars between your fallopian tube and ovary. If one or both tubes are completely blocked, your surgeon can attempt to open the tube. Surgery can be done in one of two ways (laparoscopy or laparotomy). Laparoscopy, or minimally invasive surgery, can be performed. During this procedure a very small camera attached to a thin telescope is inserted through a small incision (surgical opening) below your belly button. The surgery is performed during small tools, which can be inserted through other small incisions across your belly. A traditional open procedure, called a laparotomy, also may be used. In this procedure, the surgery is performed through a large incision made in your belly (abdomen).

    An Inspirational Story

(Dr GM Singh)

The Ripples

A man was sitting by a lake. He was throwing small pebbles into it from time to time. A young boy happened to cross by. He was intrigued to see that after every few minutes or so, the man would toss a pebble into the lake.

The boy went up to the man and said, "Good pastime, this stone throwing, he?" "Hmmm," said the man. He seemed to be deep in thought and obviously did not wish to be disturbed. Sometime later, the man said softly, "Look at the water, it is absolutely still." The boy said, "Yeah, it is."

The man tossed a pebble into the water and continued, "Only till I toss a pebble into it now do you see the ripples?" "Yeah," said the boy, "they spread further and further." "And soon, the water is still again," offered the man. The boy said, "Sure, it becomes quiet, after a while." The man continued, "What if we want to stop the ripples? The root cause of the ripples is the stone. Let’s take the stone out. Go ahead and look for it." The boy put his hand into the water and tried to take the stone out.

But he only succeeded in making more ripples. He was able to take the stone out, but the number of ripples that were made in the process were a lot more than before.

The wise man said, "It is not possible to stop the movement of the water once a pebble has been thrown into it. But if we can stop ourselves from throwing the pebble in the first place, the ripples can be avoided altogether! So too, it is with our minds. If a thought enters into it, it creates ripples. The only way to save the mind from getting disturbed is to block and ban the entry of every superfluous thought that could be a potential cause for disturbance. If a disturbance has entered into the mind, it will take its own time to die down. Too many conflicting thoughts just cause more and more disturbances. Once the disturbance has been caused it takes time to ebb out. Even trying to forcibly remove the thought may further increase the turmoil in the mind. Time surely is a great healer, but prevention is always better than cure."

Before you allow a thought or a piece of information to enter your mind, put it through the triple filter test of authenticity, goodness and value

Obesity increases susceptibility to pain

Obesity is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and a host of other diseases and conditions. Although previous research has also linked obesity with chronic pain, no large scale studies have been able to show a distinct association – until recently. The journal Obesity recently published a study that gives compelling evidence that obesity increases one's susceptibility pain. Between 2008 through 2010, the Gallup Organization surveyed 1,062,271 randomly selected Americans via phone interviews. Survey questions included height and weight, questions about pain and other conditions. A mere 19% of the sample was classified as low or normal BMI and 22% were classified as overweight. The remaining survey participants were obese, based upon the height and weight they gave in their phone interview. While the overweight group reported 20% higher rates of pain than the group with low to normal BMIs, chronic pain was 75–250% higher for those who were obese. More severe obesity was linked to more intense and more frequent pain.

    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr MC Gupta)

Q. What are the legal aspects of a dying declaration?

Ans.

  1. The following four statements occur in the legal dictionary: http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Dying+Declaration
    1. A DD is a "statement by a person who is conscious and knows that death is imminent concerning what he or she believes to be the cause or circumstances of death that can be introduced into evidence during a trial in certain cases."
    2. A dying declaration is considered credible and trustworthy evidence based upon the general belief that most people who know that they are about to die do not lie. As a result, it is an exception to the Hearsay rule, which prohibits the use of a statement made by someone other than the person who repeats it while testifying during a trial, because of its inherent untrustworthiness. If the person who made the dying declaration had the slightest hope of recovery, no matter how unreasonable, the statement is not admissible into evidence. A person who makes a dying declaration must, however, be competent at the time he or she makes a statement, otherwise, it is inadmissible.
    3. A dying declaration is usually introduced by the prosecution, but can be used on behalf of the accused.
    4. As a general rule, courts refuse to admit dying declarations in civil cases, even those for Wrongful Death, or in criminal actions for crimes other than the Homicide of the decedent.
  2. As per V V Pillay’s "Textbook of Forensic medicine and Toxicology", 16th edition, 2011 (Paras Medical Publisher, Delhi):
    1. "A DD is a "statement, written or oral, made by a person who is on the verge of dying as a result of unnatural causes".
    2. A person who is accused of crime cannot make a DD. It can only be made by a person who is the victim of crime.
    3. Statements unconnected with the actual crime are not admissible in a DD.
    4. A DD has the same measure of worth as a statement made on oath in a court.
    5. A DD is valid even if the declarant lives for some days after making the declaration but, in that case, it may be relied on only as corroborative evidence.
    6. It must be recorded in the presence of two witnesses and must be written in the language in which the declarant prefers to speak. No information must be elicited by asking leading questions. No prompting or suggestions should be made and no undue influence should be imposed on the declarant.
    7. If the dying person is unable to speak but is able to make gestures in answers to questions, it can be recorded after deciphering the gestures. The medical officer recording the declaration should only mention the precise nature of gestures made and should not interpret them himself. Interpretation is done subsequently by the court.
      (NOTE—I do not agree with certain aspects of e and f above).
  3. A recent SC judgment titled Sharda Vs. State of Rajasthan, decided by Judges Aftab Alam and Deepak Verma on 15.12.2009, throws important light on how to evaluate a DD: http://advocatessociety.com/General/ReadMoreJudgementUpdate.aspx?jid=573

    Digest: Indian Evidence Act,1872, Sec. 32 – Dying Declaration – Requirements of Oath and Cross–Examination – Requirements of oath and cross–examination are dispensed with and the reason in law to accept the veracity of deceased statement indicates that a person who is on a death bed would not tell a lie to falsely implicate an innocent person, but if the dying declaration is to be completely excluded in a given case, it may even amount to miscarriage of justice as the victim alone being the eye–witness in a serious crime, the exclusion of the statement would leave the court without a scrap of evidence - A dying declaration is entitled by law to be given greater weightage but with an observation that accused had no chance of cross-examination and right of cross-examination is essential for eliciting the truth as an obligation of oath, therefore, the dying declaration should be such which inspires full confidence of the court of its correctness – The court has to be on guard that such statement of deceased was not as a result of either tutoring, prompting or product of imagination, the court must be further satisfied that deceased was in a fit state of mind after a clear opportunity to observe and identify the assailants – Once the court is satisfied that the aforesaid requirement and also to the fact that declaration was true and voluntary, it can base its conviction without any further corroboration, it is not an absolute rule of law that the dying declaration cannot form the sole basis of conviction unless it is corroborated, the rule requiring corroboration is merely a rule of prudence – The present case revolves around the three dying declarations of deceased, no charge leveled against appellant u/s 498–A IPC and the said charge was not found proved against other co–accused,, therefore no necessity to critically examine other evidence – As per the first dying declarations no liability can be fastened on the appellant or anyone else as cross–examination fully establishes that she had sustained burn injuries on her own while cooking food – In her second statement, she stated that no one had put her to fire and no one should be blamed for it – The third statement was an afterthought and has been got prepared after the deceased appears to have been tutored to say so by her Parents, therefore, it has to be completely ignored (para 17, 23, 24, 29, 30, 33 & 34)".

   Laugh a While

(Dr GM Singh)

The obedient wife

There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me." And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him. Well, he died.

He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.

When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready ! to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a minute!"

She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away. So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren’t fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."

The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I’m a Christian, I can’t go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him." "You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!!?" "I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a cheque.

If he can cash it, he can spend it!"

 
    Medicolegal Update

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

The deceased body must be surgically well sutured after postmortem examination

  • An important component of the autopsy is the reconstitution of the body such that it can be viewed, if desired, by relatives of the deceased following the procedure.
  • After the postmortem examination, the body has an open and empty chest cavity with chest flaps open on both sides, the top of the skull is missing, and the skull flaps are pulled over the face and neck.
  • All organs and tissue must be returned to the body unless permission is given by the family to retain any tissue for further investigation.
  • Normally the internal body cavity is lined with cotton wool or an appropriate material; the organs are then placed into a plastic bag to prevent leakage and returned to the body cavity.
  • The chest flaps are then closed and sewn back together and the skull cap is sewed back in place. The body must then be properly sutured and reconstructed by the doctor conducting the autopsy with a cosmetic and parlor touch and then only it should be handed over to the relative of deceased as a regard of human corpse for ritual cremation.
