Senile ailments attack young

More and more so-called diseases of aging humanity today are found in young patients. Almost in first place in terms of “rejuvenation rates” are osteochondrosis of the spine, cholelithiasis, varicose veins and rheumatoid arthritis. Why are these senile ailments attacking the young? And is it possible to withstand this onslaught?

The desired corset is not formed

Previously, spinal osteochondrosis was found mainly in people “over forty”. Now the intervertebral discs are beginning to “age” already in adolescents. Complications of osteochondrosis, such as hernias of the intervertebral discs, are found even in 13-14 year old children. Naturally, all these problems safely pass into adulthood. The reasons are simple. Children play little sports, rarely play outdoor games on the street. Modern schoolchildren sit for hours at school in lessons, and at home – playing at the computer. Many children and adolescents are overweight. Continue reading

I went to work, because there was no fatigue or weakness, and the season was such that the entire department also sneezed and coughed. A few days later I felt great. Everything was so insignificant that I would have forgotten about this episode, but a slight coughing remained for the third week. Many do not pay attention to this, but I am a perfectionist and decided to get rid of the “residual” bronchitis. I made a fluorogram in advance for a fee. When she took the picture, the radiologist said that it looked like pneumonia, since there is a blackout in the upper lobe of the right lung. Continue reading

“Deadly” patterns

Why do people die most often? Is it possible to predict in advance when a person will die? In order to answer these questions, there is no need at all to turn to fortune-tellers. It turns out that there are scientifically and medically sound patterns associated with death. And to identify them, sometimes it’s enough to just look at the statistics …

Cold kills more often than heat
American scientists analyzed about 74 million cases of deaths that occurred in different countries from 1985 to 2012, and found that hypothermia more often causes death than abnormally high temperatures.

First, scientists collected information on weather, environmental conditions and mortality in 384 cities around the globe. For each of the settlements, a temperature was set at which people died the least. Almost everywhere, it turned out to be closer to the upper boundary of the scale than to the lower.
