Initiation of collaborative research, training and scientific capacity building in the field of alternative medicine under the JDI is also expected to contribute to the enhanced employment opportunities in the field of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH). 





Sexting does not pose health threat: study

Sexting does not pose health threat: study
- They removed studies that did not look at the relationship between sexting and behaviour, as well as any studies that did not include clearly defined quantitative measures of sexting or sexual behaviour.
This process left them with only 15 studies that looked at whether there was any link between sexting and sexual activity, unprotected sex, or the number of sexual partners.
Researchers found that there was a weak relationship between sexting and all of those categories. However, it was not possible to tell if sexting actually influenced behaviour at all.
In fact, there’s not even an agreed-upon definition for sexting, researchers said.
“There are two take-home messages here,” said Andrew Binder, an associate professor at NC State.
“First is that sexting does not appear to pose a public health threat to America’s youth,” said Binder.

At over 300 sites across India hazardous waste is part of the landscape and life

At over 300 sites across India hazardous waste is part of the landscape and life
- To be precise 4440 tones of chromium residue lies beneath the ground on which the settlement is built. People who live there are unaware they have built their lives on tonnes of toxic carcinogenic material. Nibra village is not the only one, there are atleast 320 sites across the country that host hazardous waste which affects around 2 lakh people, directly or indirectly.
They are called orphan sites because industries and municipal agencies dumped hazardous waste at such sites and abandoned them. The environment ministry is yet to finalise even guidelines and rules to tackle hazardous waste polluted sites.

Marijuana compound may mitigate seizures in patients with rare epilepsy disorder

Marijuana compound may mitigate seizures in patients with rare epilepsy disorder
- The study showed that cannabidiol, or CBD -- a compound in the cannabis plant that does not contain psychoactive properties that induce a high -- is effective as a medication for treatment-resistant epilepsy. "Cannabidiol should not be viewed as a panacea for epilepsy, but for patients with especially severe forms who have not responded to numerous medications, these results provide hope that we may soon have another treatment option," said lead investigator Orrin Devinsky, Professor at New York University Langone in New York City.
The seizure frequency in individuals treated with CBD dropped by 39 per cent from a median of nearly 12 convulsive seizures per month to about six, than people taking placebo which resulted in 13 per cent reduction in seizures from about 15 monthly seizures to fourteen, noted the researchers in the paper appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine.
