Bad Effects Smoking to Dental & Mouth

Smoking is known to be harmful to health and the majority of smokers aware of it. However, many smokers tend to ignore the impact of smoking on dental health.

Let us analyze some of the ill effects of smoking on oral health, as revealed Dentalhealthsite.

Tooth discoloration

Most smokers are generally aware of the stain teeth caused by its activities. This dental stains caused nicotine and tar in cigarettes. Change the color ranges from yellow to dark brown (the years of smoking). Teeth stains difficult to remove by normal brushing.

Bad breath

Smokers are at greater risk of bad breath than non-smokers. The content of nicotine and tar causes bad breath typical of smokers. Smoking also causes dry mouth that cause halitosis (bad breath).

Dental caries

Smoking puts you at greater risk of dental caries due to plaque growth that continues to accumulate.

Gum Disease

Smoking cause gum disease due to plaque and tartar are kept buried. Smoking also disrupt the normal function of cells in the gum tissue.

A recent study published in the journal Periodontology highlights that smokers are four times more likely to develop gum disease advanced.

Tooth loss

Advanced gum disease (Periodontitis) is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

Oral cancer

Smoking is often associated with lung cancer, whereas other major adverse effects is oral cancer. Nearly 90 percent of oral cancer patients are smokers.

Some other bad effects of smoking are:
1. Jaw bone loss
2. Shifting gear
3. Hairy tongue
4. Sinusitis
5. Changing the sense of taste and smell sensitivity
6. Slow wound healing
7. Black Lips

Smoking is not only creating a dental health problem, but worsen existing dental conditions. Journal of Periodontology reported a direct correlation between gum disease and the number of cigarettes smoked per day. There is a possibility of increasing gum disease for people who smoke more.

People who smoke less than half a pack a day are three times more likely to suffer from periodontal disease, those who smoked more than a half a pack of six times more likely for the same thing.

Why is that? Recent research has shown, the body's defense system and the ability to heal itself weakened in smokers.

How to Protect the Body of Cancer Risk

Any kind of disease cancer remains a frightening specter for most people. But there are several ways you can do to reduce cancer risk.

The scientists claim the estimated one-third of cancer cases that occur can be prevented by healthy diet. Also avoid triggers such as cigarette cancer, exhaust fumes and stress can have a positive impact.

For that the World Cancer Research Fund recommends several ways to protect the body from cancer risk, as quoted by the Telegraph on Wednesday (01/26/2011), namely:

1. Maintain ideal body weight remained
Having an ideal weight or overweight is one of the best ways to reduce the chances of someone getting cancer. In addition to reducing cancer risks, ideal weight also provides protection against diabetes and heart disease.

2. Avoiding foods high in fat, salt, sugar and calories
Reducing these foods together with all kinds of sugary drinks can reduce the risk of cancer. Limit the consumption of meat, especially meat or processed products can also provide meaningful effect. Instead more consumption of fiber and various kinds of vegetables, fruits and several kinds of nuts.

3. Do not take supplements to protect themselves from cancer
Eating different types of supplements are not proven effective in reducing cancer risk, even some supplements have been proven harmful to the body through different ways. The experts expressed a healthy diet was more effective than supplements.

4. Exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months
A mother should exclusively breastfeed their babies within the first 6 months of life, then just beginning to introduce fluids and other foods. Various evidence suggests exclusive breastfeeding can reduce the risk of cancer in women and children limit the opportunity to be obese.

5. Doing regular exercise
Doing regular exercise at least 30 minutes each day like walking quickly can reduce the risk of cancer and provide benefits for the heart and also keep the waist size.

5 Complications of Pregnancy in Fat Women

Obesity or excessive obesity causes some risk to health. Especially in obese women who are pregnant are at higher risk for complications during delivery.

The team of researchers from Liverpool University found some complications in obese women who are pregnant. This discovery after conducting inspection 30 000 women who gave birth during the period of 4 years.

Some of the complications that occur in obese women during pregnancy, as reported by the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is:

1. Obese women have a longer gestation period.
From the findings of 3 of 10 obese women have a long period of pregnancy, whereas women with normal body weight is only 2 of 10 of late delivery.

2. Obese pregnant women who require induction of artificial and require cesarean section.
One third of obese pregnant women need help in the process of induction of labor compared to normal women that only one quarter. And 3 out of 10 obese women had a cesarean delivery.

3. The majority of obese mothers who gave birth vaginally had a greater complication rate compared with normal weight.

4. Studies in 2007 showed almost half of the obese woman who died shortly after giving birth. The study also found that maternal obesity is currently one of the biggest risk when giving birth.

5. Obesity during pregnancy is often difficult process of induction and was associated with higher risk of caesarean section and possible complications that follow such as infection, bleeding and blood clots.

"Mother of obesity has become one of the risk factors that arise in the practice of midwifery, including the experience of prolonged pregnancy," said Dr. Sarah Arrowsmith from the University of Liverpool's Institute of Translational Medicine, as quoted by the Telegraph.

For that obese women should manage their weight before deciding to become pregnant. And should not be on a strict diet during pregnancy because it will affect the growth of the fetus.

10 Minutes Perfect Time for Love

During this time many men and women seem to believe in fantasy sex that lasted all night long. But actually the perfect time to feel sexual satisfaction is only 10 minutes of penetration.

Popular culture tends to glorify sex relationship with a long time. As a result, there is a perception that sex or sex marathon that lasted a long time regarded as a fun sex.

Results of a survey carried out research institute of the Society for Sex Threapy and Research, as reported by on Wednesday (01/26/2011), defines the time range is ideal for sexual activity, is as follows:

1-2 minutes, which is too short sex
3-7 minutes, adequate sex
7-13 minutes, the desired sex
10 minutes, the perfect sex
10-30, which is too long sex

This time is was the only time when there is penetration sex genital organs. So do not include heating activities (foreplay) and cooling (afterplay).

"Many people who believe in fantasies like big penis sex, rock hard erections and sexual intercourse during the night. Fantasy is not realistic that just makes people disappointed and dissatisfied," explained Eric Corty, an associate professor of psychology at Penn State University.

According Corty, with the findings that have been published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, it is hoped will eliminate a lot of sexual fantasies and encourage men and women having sex with a realistic time.
The survey results also have profound implications for the treatment for people with sexual problems.

"If there are sexual problems patients complained about how long intercourse should last, these data can help shift attention to patients about physical disorders that can be treated with counseling, not medicine," Corty said.

Lose Weight Can Make People Pumped

For obese men, weight loss is not only beneficial to health but also eliminate the fat in the genital area that can extend the penis. Not only that, losing weight can also increase libido or sex drive.

People who are overweight both men and women, tend to have poor self-image and low energy levels, which in turn can lower sex drive.

Lose weight, not only distance themselves from the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes, but also gain double benefit of improving sex drive.

Having an ideal body weight can increase a person's self confidence. By having a positive outlook on themselves, then people will more likely be in the mood (mood) is good for sexual activity with a partner.

In addition, reported by LIVESTRONG on Wednesday (26/01/2011), lose weight by exercising regularly and set healthy eating patterns can directly increase the sex drive. Losing weight can also increase blood flow to sex organs, so it can make you more in the mood for intimacy.

To increase libido with weight loss, choose a balanced program with regular exercise, healthy diet and make time to share with a partner.

Avoid the yo-yo diets that make you easily lose weight but also easily rise again. This not only will make weight loss programs fail, but also can affect hormones and mood, which in fact may decrease libido.

Eye Exercises Can Sharpen Brain

Eye exercises, not only can strengthen the muscles around the eyes and improve vision, but also can improve the ability and shrewdness. How do I?

Useful addition to the ability of vision, eye exercises can also improve concentration, memory and focus.
Reported by LIVESTRONG on Saturday (01/22/2011), here are some ways that can sharpen the brain exercises the brain:

1. Exercise to focus
To train the mind focus and attention, ask someone to hold two small objects with different colors, such as colored pencils, small balls of yarn, coins or similar objects, in front or beside her shoulder.

Then you try to focus only on one object for a few seconds, then move the focus on the second object. Vary the order of focus and time spent to see the different objects.

2. Exercise tracking

Tracking not only train the eye muscles, but also helps the brain to anticipate and follow the path of a moving object. Do this exercise alone or with a partner.

Hold an object like a pencil in hand and slowly moves away from you. Focus on the end of a pencil, then move the pencil in a pattern, such as windshield wipers, then switch to a circle pattern, it clockwise and then counterclockwise.

This exercise helps to maintain focus and attention on moving objects and is often used as a treatment for attention disorders.

3. Exercises for the memory
Play a memory game using cards or similar objects are placed face down. Play more than two cards at once to match identical cards that can improve memory.

You can also improve memory with eye exercises sway, according to research quoted in The Sunday Times. This exercise can increase the interaction between the right brain hemisphere and the left brain.

How, in the morning try to shift the focus back and forth between two stationary objects for 30 seconds. For example, drag the view from one side of the computer screen to another or from one side of the bed to another.

4. Video games
According to National Geographic, a video game that requires the track objects when using the mouse or keypad to reach the goal during game play to increase the coordination between hand and eye. Such games can also help the depth perception and ability to think and solve problems at the same time.

Sharpen the Brain By Writing

In modern times now, most people prefer to type using a computer keyboard rather than writing with pen and his own hand. In fact, writing by hand to sharpen the brain more than typing.

According to the researchers, read and write involves a number of senses in the body so that sharpen the brain's performance. The process of this brain was missing when people switch from pen and book into a computer screen and keyboard.

When writing by hand, which involved movement leaving traces in the brain called the sensorimotor. This process helps people to recognize letters.

Researchers say, touch and movement of typing on a keyboard to produce different responses in the brain, which means not reinforce the learning mechanism in the same way.

"Because of writing by hand takes more time than typing on a keyboard, then the temporal aspects of the brain involved in language can also affect the learning process," explained Professor Anne Mangen, experts from Stavanger University, as reported by Dailymail, Tuesday (01/25/2011 .)

Prof. Mangen mentioned, this condition is related to the haptic. The term 'haptic' refers to the process of touching and the way people communicate by touch, especially by using the fingers and hands to explore the environment.

This research was conducted by testing for learning the alphabet, which is divided in two groups of participants. The first group was taught to write letters by hand, while the other group by using the keyboard.
At weekly intervals, participants' memories of the alphabet are recorded. And those who learn through reading and writing letters to get the best results.

This is based on the results of research conducted in Norway and Stavanger University neurophysiology Jean-Luc Velay from Marseille University. These findings have been published in the journal Haptics.

This is what the brain People who Already Married 20 Years

Some people think that love will fade after the couple married for years. Actually, how the brain activity of married couples for 20 years?

A new study published in the December issue of Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience shows people who say he still fell in love with her partner despite two decades of marriage is not something crazy or lying.
This is based on the results of MRI brain scans of people who had long been married and still enjoy the wedding. This study shows that there are some couples who are still infatuated with her partner despite 20 years of marriage.

Prevailing theory about love is someone going crazy with her partner in the early relationship, but after a couple years will become less passionate and can be replaced by another love. But this does not happen to all couples.

Bianca Acevedo and Arthur Aron of the Department of Psychology at Stony Brook University, New York conducted a study to investigate. The study involved 17 people who claimed to still fall in love with their partner even though the average marriage age has reached 21 years.

The researchers compared the brain scans of this pair with new people who fall in love. In some ways there is obtained a very similar brain activity.

In people who just fell in love showed activity in dopamine-rich areas when looking at or thinking about their partner. This means Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA), which is part of the reward center shows a lot of activity.

This condition also can occur in people who have many years of marriage. But unlike people who just fall in love, the brains of people who have fallen in love with for years did not show inter-regional activity associated with anxiety and fear.

"Individuals in long-term relationships may experience excitement, sexual attraction, engagement and intensity associated with romantic love. But mostly he has a sense of anxiety and disturbing thoughts are far fewer than the individual's new love," Acevedo said, as quoted from, Monday (24/01/2011).
In addition, the scans also showed more activation in brain regions associated with mother's love or bond with a partner.

Another study conducted Aron has made sure that the most successful couples are couples where help each individual develop his idea, and still fall in love couple who reported often to have sex (of course, adjusted for age).

"This study is good news for couples who are married for years or long-term marriage," said Aron.

Baby's kidneys are not able to release water rapidly, causing the accumulation of water in the body that can harm the baby. Excess provision of water to dissolve sodium (sodium) in blood and bodies will be issued. Losing sodium can affect the brain activity.

Watch out, Amblyopia cause loss of vision in children

Amblyopia, one cause of vision loss in children, is reduced vision that occurs because the brain ignores the image received from the eye. Loss of vision may not be recoverable if not diagnosed and treated before age 8 years.
A child's visual channel is not fully developed at birth. The visual system and brain need to be stimulated with a clear, focused, aligned properly, piling images from both eyes in order to develop properly. These developments occurred largely occurred in the first 3 years of age but not perfect until the age of 8 years. If the brain does not get a proper visual stimuli from the eye during the period of development, the brain learns to ignore (hold) the image of the eye, causing loss of vision. If you live long enough detention, loss of vision can be permanent. There are several reasons for the lack of proper visual stimulation, each of which can cause a type of amblyopia.

Refractive amblyopia: amblyopia that can be caused by uncorrected refractive error or refractive imbalance, usually farsightedness or astigmatism, especially if there is a big difference between the eyes.
Amblyopia Strabismic: inequalities eyes (strabismus) can also cause amblyopia. The eyes produce two views of each eye which is usually combined or united into a single view of the brain and then integrated to produce three-dimensional view and high levels of depth perception. The ability to grow in the early unification of view childhood. If the two views are not parallel so that they can not be combined together, the brain hold the view, ignoring the input from that eye. The brain is not aware of the appearance of the eye that is affected even though the eyes might be structurally normal. In adults, because the visual channel has developed, to understand the two different views produce double vision (diplopia) rather than loss of vision.

AmblyopiDeprivasi: A third type of amblyopia developing during or cloudy eye lens opacity (cataract) or cornea to reduce or alter the light entering the eye.

Children with amblyopia may be too young to explain the symptoms. These children may squint, close one eye with hand, or has one eye that does not look the same direction with the other eye, it may indicate problems that require examination. Children, though, often seem not to have problems. If one eye sees well and others not, children do not compensate well and see the different functions of their peers.

By doing so, to find out problems in the development of visual, vision screening in children should begin as early as possible during the examination ana and continued during childhood. In some areas, preschool children are screened by local and regional volunteers. Every time a child reaches school age, screening is done in schools by health practitioners. If problems are found during screening, the child should go to the eye doctor, either an ophthalmologist or an ophthalmologist.

Treating amblyopia involves forcing the brain to use visual display of eye problems. Sometimes this is solved with a simple way to correct the refractive error with spectacles. More often, doctors "helping" normal eyes ", strengthen the eye by placing an additional lens behind it or use eye drops to blur vision, the good eye. If strabismus is the cause, should be repaired after the vision has been equalized between the eyes. Cataract or other opacity in the eye may require surgical treatment.

Treatment should be started on time, preferably at the age of 2 to 4 years. Be expedited treatment, will give a faster response as well. Amblyopia due to any cause that is not treated before the age of 8 are completely beyond repair. Effective amblyopia treatment failure can cause permanent blindness in the affected eye.

The sooner amblyopia or amblyopia risk factors are known, are more likely to amblyopia can be prevented or repaired. Therefore, the child's vision screening program should be supported by society.
