Celebrating freedom amid loss of ideals

Even at the moment of celebration, a nation needs to look at itself — not just its success stories, but also its failures, contradictions and paradoxes. The art of a reflexive quest is important, particularly at a time when the culture of narcissism tends to reproduce itself through media simulations, self-advertisement and a fairly developed propaganda machinery.

Walking can improve life quality for cancer patients

Walking for just 30 minutes three times per week could improve the quality of life for those with advanced cancer, a new study has found.

Researchers from the University of Surrey and King's College London in the UK explored the impact of walking on the quality of life and symptom severity in patients with advanced cancer.

Despite growing evidence of significant health benefits of exercise to cancer patients, physical activity commonly declines considerably during treatment and remains low afterwards.

Initiatives in place to promote physical activity for those suffering with cancer are normally supervised and require travel to specialist facilities, placing an additional burden on patients.

During the study 42 cancer patients were split into two groups.

Group one received coaching from an initiative which included a short motivational interview, the recommendation to walk for at least 30 minutes on alternate days and attend a volunteer-led group walk weekly.

The health benefits of walking are well documented, with improved cardio vascular strength and increased energy levels.

Group two was encouraged to maintain their current level of activity.

Researchers found that those in group one reported an improvement in physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing having completed the programme.

Many participants noted that walking provided an improved positive attitude towards their illness and spoke of the social benefits of participating in group walks.

"The importance of exercise in preventing cancer recurrence and managing other chronic illnesses is becoming clear," said Emma Ream from the University of Surrey.

"Findings from this important study show that exercise is valued by, suitable for, and beneficial to people with advanced cancer," said Ream.

"Rather than shying away from exercise people with advanced disease should be encouraged to be more active and incorporate exercise into their daily lives where possible," Ream added.

"This study is a first step towards exploring how walking can help people living with advanced cancer," said lead researcher Jo Armes from King's College London.

"Walking is a free and accessible form of physical activity, and patients reported that it made a real difference to their quality of life," said Armes.

"Further research is needed with a larger number of people to provide definitive evidence that walking improves both health outcomes and social and emotional wellbeing in this group of people," Armes added.

 

The study was published in the journal BMJ Open.

 

Beware! Coloring your hair can up chances of breast cancer

Women beware before dying your hair or using hormonal contraceptives, as they may increase your chances of breast cancer.

Researcher Sanna Heikkinen from the University of Helsinki in Finland and Finnish Cancer Registry evaluated the contribution of the use of hormonal contraceptives and hair dyes on breast cancer risk factors.

“The biggest risk factor in breast cancer is high age and known lifestyle-related risk factors include late age at first birth, small number of children, high alcohol consumption and sedentary lifestyle," said Heikkinen.

They analysed self-reported survey data from 8,000 breast cancer patients and 20,000 controls from Finland.

The results suggested that use of other hormonal contraceptives was, by contrast, associated with 32 percent higher breast cancer risk among younger women under 50 when compared to women who did not use hormonal contraceptives.

The team also investigated the amount of opportunistic mammography, which was found to be very common.

More than 60 per cent of responders reported having had a mammography before the screening age of 50.

“Women should be more extensively informed of the harms of opportunistic mammography, such as accumulating radiation burden and the potential consequences of false positive or negative findings," Heikkinen noted

Son Of Somnath Chatterjee Says Biman-Surya To Leave House

Kolkata, Aug 13,2018: Demise of Somnath Chtterjee has shattered the family as well the nation. Pratap Chatterjee, son of senior Chatterjee unfolded that past is still living alive.

The body of Somnath Chatterjee has been brought to his house at Raja Basant Roy Road where Sitaram Yechury, Secretary General of the Communist Party of India has come to pay his last salute to the ‘Unrecognised Comrade’. Interacting to Yechury, Pratap Chatterjee has expressed displeasure saying, “They have only exploited my father throughout his involvement, now showing courtesy which i won’t tolerate.”

Pratap Chatterjee has shouted when father’s body lying for the last rite. The voice mixed with annoyance and pain said in front of Sitaram Yechury, ” I told them to leave, instructed police so that nobody can enter, I don’t wanna see them within 300 meter.”

Many questions are coming out od his behaviour. Politbereau has responded after 5 hours after his demise. Pratap Chatterjee sahrply said that, “Sitaram Yechury is heartily welcome but Biman Basu and Suryakanta can leave.” The family said Somnath Chatterjee kept safe distance with CPIM. But he was wise enough to maintain the line of personal relationship and party related issues and ideological differences. So, Sitaram Yechury was standing in a safe zone.

The situatiuon started to gain its conmplexity with the growing time. The lagislature member of CPIM Sujan Chakraborty tried to control the damages. Amidst so many turmoil Suryakanta Mishra and Biman Basu paid their last tribute. Biman Basu known as the angry young man of Alimuddin expressed a cold-loaded reply on this. He said, he is heavy-hearted as he lost his father. On the other hand he added, Somnath Chatterjee didn’t like his son Pratap Chatterjee at all.

So, CPIM has again came with their double standered attitude. Still carrying the old damage controlling mindset to get into something almost forcefully. An old practice and attitude close to ‘autocracy’.
