1 – Cerebral Edema ;
Brain is the most complicated, delicate and sensitive organ in human body and scientists are unable to understand completely its functions and how it works. Some time brain fluid builds up around the brain causing increase in pressure. Scientists call it as “intracranial Pressure”. This pressure causes swelling and inflammation around brain and that is called ” Cerebral Edema”.
Researchers of University of Rochester were trying to find out how the Cerebral Edema attacks a specific person. In fact a fluid is found in every body’s brain, then how comes that we all do not suffer from Cerebral Edema ?. Now the researchers found the secret.
Our body needs rest after whole day work. When we sleep, our body gain the strength lost during the day. There is an automatic system which start working, without our knowledge, to drain the fluid surrounded the brain.This system works during sleep only.
Our doctors always advise us to sleep at least 6 to 8 hours in 24 hours. The people who do not sleep well, are most likely to become the victim of “Cerebral Edema” . When the brain fluid is,for many reasons, not drained automatically, chances of paralysis are there.
Our creator has built our body in a perfect formation that every organ of the body start and close its function when needed without our knowledge. Drainage of brain fluid works automatically during our sleep. If one does not sleep 6 to 8 hours in a day, he/she might have Cerebral Edema . Imagine how important is to sleep well to stay healthy.
Sleep well and stay healthy.

Aspirin or Acetylsalicylic Acid. (ASA) is a commonly used medicine even without doctor’s advise. It reduces headache, inflammation and fever. It is found in every home and is used widely in the world. It is time to tell the people about Aspirin, its uses and side effects etc.
Aspirin contain Salicylate, derived from Willow bark. As per known information, it was first used around 400 BC. At that time people chew Willow bark to reduce inflammation and fever.
At present Aspirin is ;
- One of the most widely used medication in the world.
- It come from a plant called Willow and myrtle.
- It was discovered that Aspirin is non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug. (Steroids are synthetic drug, a Harmon that our body produce normally). Steroids decrease inflammation. They also reduce the activity of immune system. Excessive use of steroids is harmful.
Aspirin can be used for :
- Pain relief
- To reduce inflammation
- Joint pain
- Period pain
- Arthritic fever
- To prevent blood clots ( in low doses).
- To prevent strokes , but not to cure strokes.
- To prevent Colo rectal cancer ( This type of cancer is known as Colon cancer, Rectal cancer and bowl cancer which effects the colon and rectum).
