Paromita Vohra: The condom must talk 17.12.2017 news
So, the band of banned - it has lately ensured that there be no condom advertisements on television between 6 am and 10 pm, in order to protect the children. Well, yes, after all, no condoms were used in the making of those children. Illustration/Ravi Jadhav That does not change the fact that 50 per cent of pregnancies in India are unintended and one in three end in abortion, not always under safe medical supervision, as per a recent Lancet study.

Travelling bright 17.12.2017 The Tribune
Vikas Sharma Air travel has become an experience to be endured rather than enjoyed. The downside for frequent air travellers is the rising incidence of adverse effects of long air travels on skin and mucosae. So, knowing some important facts are of paramount importance while flying. The arid environment of a long air flight can make skin look dull, aged, dry and tired. Air travel may also increase the speed at which infections spread. The health risks on a plane rise manifold when a flight is delayed and ventilation systems are turned off. Since there is hardly any moisture in the air during flight, moisturixers don’t work as well. Your best bet is to use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture and has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. In fact, just one gram (0.03 ounce) of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. Inactivity as well as too much salt intake during a long flight can cause water retention, which shows ...
