Benefits and drawbacks of fasting for health

first_imgFrom the print editionAt last the complementary health sector and pharmaceutical industry may have a reason to collaborate. According to a recent study at the University of Southern California, fasting when combined with chemotherapy is a more effective treatment in combating various cancers than either fasting or chemotherapy alone.  No related posts. The reason may be that the combination treatment sends healthy cells into survival mode, but it denies cancer cells the nutrients they need to multiply, which causes them to die.  Fasting is not a new idea when it comes to health. Used in some religions as a way of purifying the soul, it can also take the strain off the body, giving it time to get through a backlog of food and toxin processing. Prolonged fasting does have its drawbacks, though, and it’s not traditionally recommended. Nevertheless, recent headlines have been extolling the virtues of fasting on alternate days and of chronic calorie restriction (defined as the long-term consumption of 15-40 percent fewer calories than usual). Apparently this can boost brain function leading to improved memory and a delay in the onset of dementia. Because the cells can become more insulin sensitive, fasting aids in weight management and reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Lastly some research suggests that chronic calorie restriction can slow down biological aging of the heart, thus influencing cardiovascular health. All this sounds rather appealing and some people may be tempted to try it. But remember, decreasing calorie intake usually decreases metabolism. That’s fine for longevity but if decrease can’t be sustained, problems can arise with weight management. If eating less, you need to ensure that what does enter your mouth is bursting with nutrients in order to stay healthy. Be aware, also, that much of the research to date has been on mice and under controlled conditions. Human trials are starting, but the pros and cons won’t be fully understood for several years. Meanwhile, the American Cancer Society does not recommend fasting, and any patient who is also diabetic or who has lost a significant amount of weight should consult an oncologist before making such a drastic move. While it is not prudent to embark suddenly on either alternate-day fasting or a long-term calorie-restricted diet without first consulting the appropriate medics, it’s also pretty obvious that overeating is a potential health hazard. To avoid it, try to eat mindfully. This means serving your food on a plate (or something similar) and sitting down at a table to eat. Keep portion sizes moderate. Put your knife and fork down between mouthfuls and chew very thoroughly, taking your time to really taste and enjoy the flavors. If you feel full, stop eating. If you finish everything but don’t feel satisfied, go and do something else for 20 minutes and only then, if you still feel truly hungry, mindfully eat something small such as a few nuts or a couple more mouthfuls of the main meal. Eating and drinking in this way should set you gently and safely on the path to a long and healthy life.Julie Godfrey BSc (Hons) is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).

Donald Trump Jr. posing in hunting regalia holding up a disembodied tail that appears to have been cut from a felled elephant beside him Reports surfaced this week that the administration of President Donald Trump would reverse an Obama-era ban on importing legally hunted elephant remains known as trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia While Twitter users expressed outrage the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) a federal agency under the Department of the Interior said in a statement that the ban’s reversal could actually “enhance the survival of the species in the wild” The backlash from skeptics was thick and fast On her Thursday talk show Ellen DeGeneres announced that she was launching a funding drive for elephants which she said show "compassion sympathy social intelligence self-awareness… all the things I have yet to see in this president" British comedian Ricky Gervais called the move a “devastating blow to the survival” of elephants and characterized it as “savage and pointless” And the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation which has distributed $80 million in conservation grants called the ban reversal a “reprehensible” move that would cause the US to lose its “global leadership position in putting an end to the ivory trade” Why is the administration lifting the ban Elephants are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act but a stipulation in the act allows the US government to issue permits to import trophies if theres evidence that the "hunting actually benefits conservation for that species" That’s what the US FWS says will happen in Zimbabwe and Zambia The Service said it had determined that "legal well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit the conservation of certain species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation" The FWS announcement is dated November 16 However a November 14-dated statement on the website of the hunting advocacy group Safari Club International (SCI) says an FWS official announced the rule change at a forum it co-hosted in Tanzania Along with the National Rifle Association (NRA) the SCI had opposed the initial 2014 ban Tanzania which is in the midst of a poaching epidemic is also under consideration for an FWS ban lift the Washington Post reports How did the ban originally come about The ban on bringing hunting trophies into the US was never applied across the board Remains of animals legally hunted in South Africa and Namibia could be bought in under the Obama administration but those from Zimbabwe and Zambia were eventually prohibited That’s because the FWS in 2015 determined that Zimbabwe could not adequately prove it could implement laws to protect elephants Zimbabwe saw a 6% decline in its elephant population between 2007 and 2014 according to the latest elephant census data But that’s a relatively small decline compared to the 30% decline in the overall African elephant population over the same period Elephant populations in most areas of Zambia were relatively stable the census found Zambia had previously banned hunting after several years of population decline but now permits it Citing people briefed on the rule change the Post reports that the decision was made after Zimbabwe officials submitted documents that fulfilled the FWS’ previously unmet reporting requirements What do conservationists say That hunting can under the right circumstances complement conservation efforts is not under dispute But even the FWS statement announcing the rule change warns that to support conservation efforts “hunters should choose to hunt only in countries that have strong governance sound management practices and healthy wildlife populations” Zimbabwe conservationists say is no such country Wayne Pacelle president and chief executive of the Humane Society wrote in a blog post: "Its a venal and nefarious pay-to-slay arrangement that Zimbabwe has set up with the trophy hunting industry" He also described it as “one of the most corrupt countries on Earth" Zimbabwe is also in the midst of a turbulent political transition that appears to be a military coup; on Tuesday night the armed forces took control of the country’s capital Harare and have since kept President Robert Mugabe and his wife in custody Others worry that lifting the ban will undermine efforts to suppress the illegal poaching that feeds the ivory trade Iain Douglas-Hamilton founder and senior scientist at the Nairobi-based Save the Elephants says that while Africans are told “dont kill elephants” wealthy Americans “are being allowed to come and do it” according to the Post “When you go back in history it did do good but now is absolutely not the time to be opening up hunting” Douglas-Hamilton said Write to Joseph Hincks at josephhincks@timeinccomCracking a whip against Sharad Yadav loyalists the Bihar unit of JD(U) on Monday sacked 21 party leaders for anti-party

agreement of ‘gathbandhan’ (grand alliance) was for five years which was broken.I am hurt by this I continue to stand for the ‘gathbandhan’" he said Yadav also claimed that the ‘original party’ is

the discrimination they encountered because of the caste bias of the state level administration Related News By Surinder S Jodhka The Jats without doubt have been the most important and powerful caste community in the rural landscapes of northwest India The sources of their dominance have typically been their control over agricultural lands their demographics and their networks beyond the village However unlike the other “dominant castes” such as the Marathas of Maharashtra the Patels of Gujarat the Reddys and Kammas of Andhra Pradesh or the Lingayats of Karnataka the Jats of northwest India have also been the “superior-most” community in terms of their status in the local rural caste hierarchies Even though the institution of caste is pretty strong in the region the hold of Brahmanical ideology has always been rather weak The values of khudkasht (self-cultivation) that have dominated this region for long also provide the frame of reference for social hierarchies of caste in the region No one was as good as a zamindar and the category did not imply an absentee landlord here as it did in Bengal Bihar or eastern UP Anyone who cultivated his own land and did not have to work for others as a farm labourer could qualify to be a zamindar provided he belonged to the right caste community Even a Brahmin in rural Haryana would choose to identify himself as a zamindar if he owned agricultural land However given the social cultural and economic significance of land only the most valued could own it Landownership and social status have been synonymous in the region During my fieldwork in Haryana I found rural Brahmins easily conceding to the status superiority of Jats and other landowning dominant caste communities No wonder Dalits in the agrarian landscapes there have been almost completely landless It is their landlessness and not their “ritual status” that accounts for their vulnerability in rural areas Caste in the region has always operated within the framework of land relations The Banias Brahmins or Punjabi Khatris/ Aroras could claim superior status in urban centres but never in the rural areas It is perhaps easy to explain the eagerness of the UPA government to include Jats in the OBC list — it appears to be a desperate electoral tactic What is more difficult to explain is the widespread aspiration among Jat leaders to get themselves included in the list Even though “backwardness” in this context is a statist category or a legal status it also indicates one’s social position in society While it is true that some of them are poor the majority of them in states like Haryana Punjab and Uttar Pradesh do not lack in confidence or social and economic resources They can send their children to schools or colleges on their own terms As scholars like Prem Chowdhry have shown the Jat leadership had also initiated reforms during the colonial period to create awareness about the need for education They have also been well represented in the state system and have been in control of local- and state-level political institutions without any viable threat to their position Even in government jobs at the state level their presence is far from insignificant In fact the non-Jat communities of Haryana often complained about the discrimination they encountered because of the caste bias of the state level administration Perhaps an easy explanation for the Jat sense of deprivation is the “crisis of agriculture” The northwest region — Punjab Haryana and western UP — was at the forefront of the Green Revolution Jat farmers were among the most prominent beneficiaries of the economic growth witnessed in the countryside during the 1970s But from the mid-1980s agriculture began to lose ground The process of liberalisation further accentuated this The effects of the agrarian crisis were felt in different ways Like elsewhere in the country with generational progression the size of land holdings has been declining leading to a downward mobility among agrarian communities Hence the demand for recognition as “backward” But this is not the whole story The Jat demand must also be located in their growing sense of relative (not absolute) deprivation and in the rapidly disintegrating rural social order It is not the marginalised Jat cultivator who is articulating the demand for inclusion in the OBC quota but the upwardly mobile Jat elite Their younger generations who often study in urban schools no longer wish to stay in the village and plough the land But urban spaces and quality education have often been the monopoly of the upper-castes in cities Even with their economic might and political power the Jat elite finds it hard to compete with the traditional non-Jat upper-caste middle classes of urban areas It is within these dynamics of rural transformation and post-liberalisation aspirations that we ought to view the Jat demand for inclusion in the OBC list But the acceptance of their demand could produce an exclusionary effect The really “backward” those who are located just above the so-called “pollution line” the landless and the poor would lose out in the process And they are large in

has seen a lot in over 100 years of its existence It has seen Gurgaon’s transition from a village to a city and then to an IT hub struggling to keep up with the dizzying pace of its own development It has seen the space around the structure once open gradually taken over by matchbox-size houses And it has seen Gurgaon being renamed as Gurugram The little-known temple is dedicated to Guru Dronacharya the revered teacher of the Kauravas and Pandavas who it is believed lived and taught his disciples in the area Residents of Subhash Nagar say the temple was established in 1887 after almost 50 acres of land was donated by Baba Singh Bhagat Maharaj an affluent resident Multiple structures were built to pay tribute to Dronacharya including a statue of the guru on the land where the Dronacharya Government College now stands The statue was removed after the land was allotted for the college The land donated by Bhagat Maharaj included a lake near which it is believed Dronacharya taught his disciples Today this lake has been handed over to the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) after residents who were managing the land were unable to deal with encroachers “We tried for a long time to preserve the lake but when we found we were unable to do so we handed it over to the MCGThe point is not to own the land but to preserve the legend and what remains of it” says Kali Ram Sharma a member of one of the five families which have been looking after the Dronacharya temple and the land it stands on When the temple was initially built it consisted of only a boundary wall a single room and a statue of Guru Dronacharya Over the years however it has been renovated The temple now has two rooms and statues of other gods and goddesses The statue of Dronacharya is at the centre of the temple whose walls are also adorned with scenes depicting the guru teaching his disciples Apart from the temple locals say its surroundings have also changed in the last century What was once a vast open area surrounded by fields and greenery is today a crowded residential area of narrow lanes and innumerable houses that stand cheek by jowl “Earlier this temple used to be clearly visible because it was in an open area but now it is hidden by the houses around it so few people even know it exists” says Vijay Sharma a resident Reiterating this point Kali Ram adds “The number of visitors to the temple had reduced over the years But since the government decided to change the name of the city to Gurugram more people have started visiting because of increased awareness and media coverage Earlier we would get about 70 visitors per week now almost a 100 people visit… We hope the numbers will increase even more when the name is finally changed” For all the latest Delhi News
