• Both malaria and dengue mosquitoes bite during day time.

• It is the female mosquito which bites.

• Dengue mosquito takes three meals in a day while malaria mosquito takes one meal in three days.

• Malaria may infect only one person in the family but dengue will invariably infect multiple members in the family in the same day.

• Malaria fever often presents with chills and rigors. Suspect Chikungunya if the fever presents together with joint and muscle pains.

• Both dengue and malaria mosquitoes grow in fresh water collected in the house.

• The filaria mosquito grows in dirty water.

• There should be no collections of water inside the house for more than a week.

• Mosquito cycle takes 7-12 days to complete. So, if any utensil or container that stores water is scrubbed cleaned properly once in a week, there are no chances of mosquito breeding.

• Mosquitoes can lay eggs in flower pots or in water tanks on the terrace if they are not properly covered.

• If the water pots for birds kept on terraces are not cleaned every week, then mosquitoes can lay eggs in them.

• Some mosquitoes can lay eggs in broken tires, broken glasses or any container where water can stay for a week.

• Using mosquito nets/repellents in the night may not prevent malaria and dengue because these mosquitoes bite during the day time.

• Wearing full sleeves shirt and trousers can prevent mosquito bites.

• Mosquito repellent can be of help.

• If you suspect that you have a fever, which can be malaria or dengue, immediately report to the doctor.

• There are no vaccines for malaria and dengue.

Myths

• The right skin cream can keep your skin looking young: For reducing wrinkles, the topical treatment with the best evidence behind it is retinoic acid. The best ways to keep wrinkles at bay are using sunscreen and not smoking.

• Antibacterial soap is best for keeping your skin clean: Many experts are concerned that the use of antibacterial soap could lead to more antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Antibacterial soap is not necessary for everyday use. Regular soap is fine. Thorough and consistent hand-washing, not antibacterial soap is what helps prevent the spread of infection.

Turmeric can prevent heart failure

Traditional Indian turmeric prevents heart failure, lowers cholesterol, prevents cancers and gall stones and augments scar formation in a wound. Studies from the University of Toronto’s Cardiology Division and published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation have shown that curcumin, an ingredient in the curry spice turmeric, when given orally to a variety of mouse models with enlarged hearts (hypertrophy), could prevent and reverse hypertrophy, prevent heart failure, restore heart function and reduce scar formation. In the studies, curcumin was given to rats, who then underwent surgery or received drugs designed to put them at risk of heart failure. The rats that received curcumin showed more resistance to heart failure and inflammation than comparison groups of rats that did not get curcumin. Curcumin treatment also reversed heart enlargement. Curcumin short–circuited the heart enlargement process, though it’s not clear how it did that. The healing properties of turmeric have been well–known. The herb has been used in traditional Indian medicine to reduce scar formation. For example, when there is a cut or a bruise, the home remedy is to reach for turmeric powder because it can help to heal without leaving a bad scar. Curcumin has come under the scientific spotlight in recent years, with studies investigating its potential benefits for reducing cholesterol levels, improving cardiovascular health and fighting cancer. As an herb, turmeric should to be taken 300 mg thrice–daily with meals. It has useful actions like antioxidant, anti–inflammatory, anti rheumatic; lowering cholesterol, anti cancer and prevention of gall stones. It is also found to be useful in situations like dysmenorrhea, dyspepsia, HIV, muscle soreness, peptic ulcer disease, scabies and uveitis. Curcuminoids, act as free radical scavengers. They also inhibit leukotrienes and synthesis of prostaglandins. The anti–inflammatory activity has been claimed to be comparable to NSAIDs (such as indomethacin). Curcuminoids lower blood lipid peroxides, decrease total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, and increase HDL cholesterol. Turmeric has also been claimed to inhibit platelet aggregation.
