False Medical Beliefs

The most common medical myths are:

*Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
*Reading in dim light ruins your eyesight.
*We use only 10% of our brains.
*Hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.
*Shaving causes hair to grow back faster or coarser.
*Mobile phones are dangerous in hospitals.
*Eating turkey makes people especially drowsy.

A review of evidence by US researchers surrounding these seven commonly-hold beliefs suggests they are actually "medical myths".
Some are utterly untrue, while others have no evidential proof, the British Medical Journal reports.
Researchers from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis hunted medical literature for evidence on each claim.
They found no evidence supporting the need to drink eight glasses of water a day.

The images we see on television and in magazines and movies send messages about what's beautiful and what makes someone successful. People often imitate those images, changing their clothes, their haircut, their style, to be more like what they see in the media.

Problem is, what's shown in the media doesn't usually represent reality. The media likes to show women who are really tall, really thin, usually light-skinned, with voluptuous bodies. But this kind of body type is rare--it's not the norm.

Guys also get media messages. They're supposed to be tall, thin, and muscular, with perfect skin and teeth.

When we can't live up to these impossible images, we feel inferior or less successful. Our best defense is knowing that the media uses tricks to make people look better than they really do. Most of the pictures we see are distortions--if not outright lies.

People come in all different shapes and sizes. We are tall and short, thinner and heavier, lighter and darker. We have straight and curly hair. We have lots of body hair, and very little body hair.

Here are some tips for viewing the media with a smarter, more critical eye.

* The media uses props, lighting and computer technology to make actors' and models' bodies look like the so-called "perfect image."
* People's shapes and sizes are often changed in the pages of magazines.
* So-called "imperfections"--acne, freckles, lines, wrinkles, skin folds and other unwanted features--are airbrushed out.
* Splicing together body parts from several different photographs can create the media's "perfect image." So, what we often see in a magazine ad is a lie.

Everyone is different. And it's not just normal, but also wonderful, to be different.

Get media savvy. Don't let the media tell you how you should look or feel about your body.

Pakistan Snow Leopard Quest

I saw this documentary by BBC about Pakistan's Snow Leopard on Youtube and i don't feel any repentance to say that ,after watching national geographic for more than 15 years, i have not seen any breathtaking, spectacular and awesome video of wildlife like this ever before.

The main glory of this video is the Snow Leopard,which is one of the rarest seen animals.It starts by how BBC people make their journey to the Ladakh and Himalayan mountains of Pakistan and their wait to capture the leopard.They dance and sing at the new years eve when they capture the leopard for the first time on the camera.The movie ends by the most fabulous hunting of Markhor on the steepy slopes by the utmost beautiful cat.

This video shows the beauty of Pakistan such as the snow covered peaks and the undiscovered terrains.

And above all

I say Thanks to Almighty Allah for gifting Pakistan with such beauty.

The Truth!

"Then how (will it be) when the angels will take their souls at death, smiting(meaning knocking) their faces and their backs?
That is because they followed that which angered Allah, and hated that which pleased Him. So He made their deeds fruitless."

Al-Quran: Surah Mohammad 47,Ayat 27:28

Contrary to how Ptcl's Pakistan Package is publicized,it is absolutely not free because first you have to pay 199Rs+tax/month and secondly there are only 5000 maximum mins which you can avail each month.

The other main Trick deployed is that this package is pre activated on every phone so that everyone should pay 200Rs/month without their knowledge.

Why are these telecom companies looting the nation by fake publicity!

I deactivated this service last night by calling 1236.And i Really feel pity for the people who live in villages,being unaware of the rules will have to pay 200Rs/month.
