Why DO I Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. The development of cataract is also associated with a positive family history (if a family or relative has cataract before), an unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be easily irritated, and can lead to decrease in visual acuity, with blurry and double vision.

Eating for two during pregnancy?

Mothers need additional calories during pregnancy for the natural weight gain. However, the extra calorie needs is not as high as most mothers think. Pregnant women only need to add about 100kcal for the first trimester, add another 200kcal for the second and third trimester. A cup of soy milk supplies your excess calorie needs for the first trimester. While 1 medium banana, 1 apple, 1 cup of soy milk with 1 piece of digestive biscuit in addition to your daily diet provides you nutrients for the excess needs during second and third trimester.

Caffeine and pregnancy.

Excess caffeine may lead to low birth weight and miscarriage. Caffeine may affect baby’s growth as it may constrict blood vessels and limit the nutrient supplies to baby. Also, caffeine inhibits iron absorption. The low iron stores at fetal stage causes higher risk of iron deficiency anemia during infant development. Yet, pregnant mothers need not avoid caffeine totally. American Dietetic Association suggests 300mg daily (equals to 3 cups of coffee) as the upper limit of caffeine intake for pregnant women.

Red wine for a healthy heart

Red wines contain antioxidants that can help to increase your ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) and protect against artery damage by the ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL). Red wines also contain a substance called resverastrol which help to prevent blood clots, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. According to the American Heart Association, the recommended intake is 2 drinks per day for men and 1 drink per day for women (1 drink = 4 ounce/118ml of red wine). Taken in moderation, a glass of red wine help provide many health benefits towards a healthy heart.

Essential Good Cholesterol.

Cholesterol is necessary for the production of hormones, bile salts and vitamins in our body. High levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) may cause plaque formation on artery walls, while good cholesterol (HDL) facilitates removal of excess cholesterol thus decreasing the risk of heart diseases. Maintain a good cholesterol balance with soluble fiber intake (to lower bad LDL), and Omega-3 fatty acids (to raise good HDL). Cold water fish (salmon, sardine and mackerel) are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Alternatively, try flax seeds and soy beans.

For example, stretching your waist muscles can help prevent back injury. Stand with a half squat with feet shoulder-width apart, knees bent and hands on hips. Bend slowly to the left then back to the center. Then bend to the right. You should feel the tension at your waist muscles. Keep it parallel without leaning forwards or backwards. It takes merely 5 minutes for 10 repetitions!
