Despite major advances, HIV/AIDS remains one of the world's most significant public health challenges, particularly in low and middle income countries, with new diagnoses every year and young women in sub-Saharan Africa seen as being particularly at risk. World AIDS Day on 1 December is used to unite people in the fight against HIV, the human immunodeficiency virus first identified in 1984, to show their support for people living with HIV and commemorate those who have died. The member countries of the United Nations agreed in September in a new set of global goals to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.Here are some facts about AIDS in 2015 with data from the World Health Organisation, the United Nations children's agency UNICEF, and UNAIDS: 1. Globally about 36.9 million people are living with HIV including 2.6 million children 2. An estimated 2 million were infected in 2014 3. An estimated 34 million people have died from HIV or AIDS, including 1.2 million in 2014 4. The number of adolescent deaths from AIDS has tripled over the last 15 years 5. AIDS is the number one cause of death among adolescents in Africa and the second among adolescents globally6. In sub-Saharan Africa, the region with the highest prevalence, girls account for 7 in 10 new infections among those aged 15-19 7. At start of 2015, 15 million people were receiving antiretroviral therapy compared to 1 million in 2001 8. Despite widespread availability of HIV testing, only an estimated 51 percent of people with HIV know their status 9. The global response to HIV has averted 30 million new HIV infections and nearly 8 million deaths since 2000 10. In 2015, Cuba was the first country declared to have eliminated mother-to-child transmission of HIVsource:Independent UK

Around 25 percent of kids and teenagers don’t drink ANY water as part of their fluid intake. A surprising number of adults don’t drink enough water, as well, with one study finding that half of Americans don’t get their recommended daily intake of water. Many people down numerous caffeinated beverages throughout the day in order to stay awake, but forget to drink the one liquid that is absolutely vital to our survival. Not drinking enough water can pose serious threats to your health, including digestive issues, urinary tract infections, premature aging, and anxiety. Water makes up anywhere from 55-65% of your body, which means you need a lot of it to stay hydrated. The water in your body becomes depleted when you exercise and do other activities, so replacing it is crucial. Water aids in almost every bodily function, so it quite literally gives us life. More»

Eating processed meats like hot dogs, sausages and bacon can cause colorectal cancer in humans, and red meat is also a likely cause of the disease, World Health Organization (WHO) experts said. The review by WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), released on Monday, said additionally that there was some link between the consumption of red meat and pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer. IARC classified processed meat as "carcinogenic to humans" on its group one list along with tobacco and asbestos, for which there is "sufficient evidence" of cancer links. Each 50-gram (1.8-ounce) portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18 percent, the agency estimated. A 50-gram portion would be the equivalent of eating one hot dog or two slices of bacon. Americans eat about 21.7 grams of processed pork per day, according to a 2011 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Red meat was classified as probably carcinogenic in IARC's group 2A list, joining glyphosate, the active ingredient in many weedkillers. The IARC examined some 800 studies during a meeting of 22 health experts earlier this month. "For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal (bowel) cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed," Dr Kurt Straif of the IARC said in a statement. The classification for red meat, defined as all types of mammalian meat including beef, lamb and pork, reflected "limited evidence" that it causes cancer. The IARC found links mainly with colorectal cancer - which is a cancer that starts either in the colon or rectum - but also observed associations with pancreatic and prostate cancer. Inconclusive evidence of a link between processed meat and stomach cancer was also observed, it said. The news prompted animal rights activists People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to offer free vegan diet starter kits and outraged agriculture groups. The Canadian Meat Council, which represents meat packers such as Maple Leaf Foods (MFI.TO) and the Candian-based units of Cargill Ltd. [CARGIL.UL] and JBS SA (JBSS3.SA), rejected the findings as simplistic, while trade group North American Meat Institute said the IARC report "defies common sense." Some scientists and researchers said the news may not add much to long-standing health recommendations to limit consumption of such meat. The IARC does not compare the level of risk associated with different substances in a given category, so does not suggest eating meat is as dangerous as smoking. "Nobody is telling people not to eat meat," said David Wallinga, senior health officer for health and environmental advocacy group Natural Resources Defense Council. "What they're saying is if you eat it, eat less of it and buy it from sources that have produced it better." MEAT-HEAVY DIETS Meat suppliers and processors argue that meat provides essential protein, vitamins and minerals. Shares of most meat companies were little changed on Monday. Tyson Foods Inc (TSN.N) fell after a rating cut by JP Morgan to "neutral," which focused on the company's shrinking market share in packaged meat. "I'm not expecting that [IARC] report to be a big issue going forward," said Brian Weddington, a vice president of Moody's Investors Service's corporate finance group. "I think there's still going to be a lot of hot dogs sold tomorrow." The medical community has long thought there could be a link between red or processed meat and colorectal cancer, said Tim Key, a professor at Oxford University. "Eating a bacon bap [sandwich] every once in a while isn't going to do much harm; having a healthy diet is all about moderation," Key said in a statement from charity Cancer Research UK. According to estimates cited by the IARC, 34,000 cancer deaths per year worldwide are attributable to diets high in processed meat. About 1 million cancer deaths per year are due to tobacco smoking, it said. More»

Munching nuts and dry fruits is definitely healthier than eating a bowl full of chips or other snacks. While nuts and dry fruits have several health benefits, they also come with their share of calories. If you are trying to lose weight, you might want to keep a check on what nuts or dry fruits you eat. Here is the calorie count of some commonly consumed dry fruits and nuts. - Apricot: 1 piece = 3.1 cal - Raisin: 1 piece = 3.1 cal - Pista: 1 piece = 4.4 cal - Cashew nuts: 1 piece = 6 cal - Almonds: 1 piece = 7.9 cal - Walnut: 1 piece = 14.4 cal - Fig: 1 small piece = 14.8 cal Dates: 1 piece = 76.1 cal If you eat a handful of nuts every day, eat the ones with a lower calorie count. However, do not ignore walnuts just because it is high in calories. Walnut is great for preventing hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and also improves sperm count. Dry fruits are high in sugar content as compared to nuts, and hence must be avoided. If you like nuts and dry fruits in your cereal, opt for the plain cereal (not the flavoured kind) to keep your sugar consumption to a minmum. These small changes will help balance your calorie intake and keep you healthy. Here are 7 dry fruits and nuts you must eat every day. More»

How often do you check your breasts? If your answer is never, know that breast cancer is one of the common types of cancer in women. Since October is breast cancer awareness month, here are the signs you need to look out for. 1- Discharge from nipples: Unless you are pregnant or breast feeding, any discharge from the nipple is not a sign of a healthy breast, says Dr Sumeet Shah, Consultant Surgical Oncologist, Mumbai. If you have bloody discharge or white fluid with blood stains, it’s time to consult a gynaecologist. 2- Swelling/change in texture: The skin around your nipples is soft and supple, but in case of breast cancer, it turns thick and hard. You can even feel peeling of the skin around the nipples and even the nipples take an orange tint. Although not quite common, you may feel swelling in the entire breast or a part of it. Whatever, might be the cause, it is not a bad idea to consult a doctor at the earliest. 3- Pain in the breast: If you feel constant pain or tenderness in the breast, then you should visit a doctor without any delay. Because, it may indicate changes in the breast tissue that in turn lead to pain. 4- Skin irritation/dimpling: Usually, nipples face outwards and do not cause any irritation. However, if you have been experiencing irritation around nipples or an inward pull, it might indicate breast cancer. In such a case, performing a breast self examination might help you out. 5-A lump in the breast: Finding a lump in the breast is not an easy job, unless you regularly examine your breasts. However, a knot or a hard painless lump in one or both breast calls for a mammogram. 6- Swelling or lump in the armpit: Lymph nodes present in the arms might get inflamed due to an infection. But, the presence of hard knots or lumps in the armpits can indicate breast cancer. Don’t worry, but consult your doctor to know the exact cause and get treated. More»

This year in Egypt a number of entities have launched a series of events aimed to highlight the fight against breast cancer and spread awareness. In Egypt, breast cancer accounts for up to 35 percent of all cancer cases, according to the National Cancer Institute. It has the lion's share of the media spotlight, but it is only one of a number of types of cancer that affect women. The fight against gynecological cancers is marked yearly around the world in September.

Ginger Ginger has long been used in folk medicine to treat everything from colds to constipation. Ginger can be used fresh, in powdered form (ginger spice), or candied. Although the flavor between fresh and ground ginger is significantly different, they can be substituted for one another in many recipes. In general, you can replace 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger with 1 tablespoon of fresh grated ginger, and vice versa. Consuming ginger and ginger products, in addition to taking any anti-nausea medications as prescribed, may provide some comfort for a queasy stomach during cancer treatment. More»

The number of people living with diabetes has soared by nearly 60% in the past decade, Diabetes UK warns. The charity said more than 3.3 million people have some form of the condition, up from 2.1 million in 2005. The inability to control the level of sugar in the blood can lead to blindness and amputations and is a massive drain on NHS resources. The NHS said it was time to tackle poor lifestyle, which is a major factor behind the rise. Diabetes UK called for the NHS to improve care for patients and for greater efforts to prevent diabetes. Roughly 90% of cases are type 2 diabetes, which is the form closely linked to diet and obesity. More»
