Ancient wisdom can keep diabetes at bay 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The emergence of marginal dysfunction or alteration in any part of the blood sugar system, but not to the extent of elevating sugar level above normal, is predisposition to diabetes. It is an unmanifested state of diabetes which passes down from one generation to the other but whenever a critical point is reached due to an abuse, it transforms into full-blown diabetes. Dr Denham Horman proposed a theory that excess of free radicals in humans leads to a lethal process called oxidative stress (OS), which causes dysfunction or alteration in any biological entity. The Journal of Epigenetics writes, "pre-diabetics have altered mitochondrial DNA". Alteration of mitochondrial DNA in the absence of any other perceptible cause points to OS as the cause. Modern factors like tans-fats, refined and processed food, adulteration, pollution, insecti- cides, pesticides, cosmetics, swe- etening, flavouring agents, carbonaceous drinks, phthalates (plastics), electromagnetic waves of cell phones, nuclear and increased UV ...

Assam CM announces measures to help flood victims 18.8.2017 DNA: Popular News
Assam chief minister on Thursday announced a slew of measures to stem the annual floods in the state that has claimed the lives of over 100 people this year. At a meeting he held at the Assam Bhawan with several bureaucrats, as a follow up of the Prime Minister's relief package of Rs 2000 crore for the rehabilitation of the Northeast floods, Sonowal said that the Brahmaputra Board will set up a unit in the riverine island of Majuli. The director general of the Brahmaputra Board added that three major projects upstream will be started soon to protect Majuli from the fury of the flood. A road cum embankment project, of Rs 237 crore, will soon take off from the southern bank of Majuli.

'Flood has become an annual affair in Bihar' 18.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Come monsoon and the rivers in Bihar have once again breached the embankments, causing severe damages to life and property. The government machinery is yet again grappling with the relief and rescue operations. Despite the state government spending crores for the disaster control and management where 28 of 38 districts have been declared as "flood prone", the floods affect lakhs of people every year. The government measures, including construction and repair of embankments, have thoroughly failed to serve their purpose. This year, the flood has claimed almost 100 lives and affected over 93 lakh people across 17 districts in the north of the state. The toll has prompted the environmentalists and water experts to raise concern over the government's repeated failure to resolve the matter. Himalayan rivers are notorious for causing siltation between embankments. The process that badly affects the bed of the river can only be solved through dredging and treating the catchment, Patna-based hydrologist V K ...
