Squeaky clean

Despite growing worldwide concern regarding overuse of antibiotics and the loss of microbial species in the human microbiome (what microbiologists call “the disappearing microbiome”), there is still the widespread notion that being squeaky clean is a good idea. Watch TV or read magazines and you will see ads for disinfectants making claims such as “Kills 99.9% of germs on contact,” or mouthwashes that claim “Kills 99.9% of germs that cause bad breath.” Whether it’s a disinfectant used on countertops or mouthwash to eradicate mouth microbes, are these really necessary? Is it healthy? Let’s break down the microbes that are not healthy for humans into broad categories: Viruses spread from other humans—COVID-19 and the flu virus are the obvious examples in our present world.

Navratri Diet Plan To Lose Weight

Hi everyone I am back with a diet plan and some Naratri Vrat recipes in the series of posts related to weight loss during Navratri. Well, I don’t believe in heavy fried foods during Navratri fasting as there is no point of fasting if you eat yourself sick and sleep every night with a heavy stomach burping and belching. Eeeks!… I hate that feeling. Anyhow during vrat when everyone is trying to control their hunger and waiting for that one meal in the evening along with various mini meals all through the day … munching on fried peanuts, roasted makhane, dry fruits, bananas, but I am trying to stay light and healthy. So I prepared a wonderful meal for myself a day back. Take a look. This is looking good… isn’t it? I don’t know what all you are thinking about it...

Handwriting: A glimpse into your microbiome?

I’ve always suspected that the fine hand and finger movements required for handwriting offered a glimpse into the status of the microbiome. Let me explain. The letter above was written by President Ronald Reagan in November, 1994 announcing his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s dementia. Compare the handwriting of this letter with his writing from a few years earlier in 1986:     You can appreciate that his pre-Alzheimer’s handwriting is smoother, with more consistent size of the letters and more consistent letter alignment, while the post-diagnosis handwriting is shakier, letter formation less consistent. (Of course, dementia is not an all-or-none situation; it is likely that the brain pathology of Alzheimer’s was already quite well established by the time he wrote the 1986 letter, but the sit...

Aah!! What a terrible feeling it is. Weight gain becomes a trap and we feel that we can never come out of it. We fret about our weight but have we ever thought that how many carbohydrates we have consumed during these nine days daily and all in the name of having Special Navratri Vrat foods?
