5 advantages of having a pet for health

Many ways to live healthier. One way is to have pets. By treating an animal, you can better quality of life, not just in terms of physical but also psychological.

If you've never owned a pet, It never hurts to try. As reported by the Woman's Day, there are five benefits you can get.

1. Reduce stress

Research by a team from the State University of New York, found that when someone does a job full of pressure, stress levels reduced when accompanied by pets. This comparison was accompanied with a partner, close friends or other family members.

2. Lowering blood pressure

Having a pet also has the potential to lower blood pressure, especially in patients with hypertension. That's according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), United States.

"If there are pets around you, can decrease blood pressure," said Marty Becker, author of "Your Dog: The Owner's Manual".

3. Reduce pain

Believe it or not, the animal is the best pain relief medication. Especially for people who experience migraines or chronic pain. "It's like Valium, has a pet can reduce anxiety. Anxiety reduced mean pain diminished, "said Becker.

4. Lowering cholesterol

According to the CDC, have pets, make healthier heart because it can reduce levels of bad cholesterol in the blood. It is known that men who have pets, the level of triglycerides (fats) and lower cholesterol than men who do not have pets.

5. Preventing stroke

"If you have a cat, the risk of heart attack decreases by 30 percent. Then the risk of stroke can be reduced by 40 percent, "said Dr. Becker. Not only that, pet also can help the recovery of patients who had a heart attack.

According to Becker, if someone had experienced a heart attack and having a pet, chances are his life eight times larger

What does Cerebrum do ?

Most high level of brain functions take place in the cerebrum. Its two large hemispheres make up approximately 85 percent of the brain's weight. the exterior surface of the cerebrum, the cebral cortex, is a convoluted, or folded, grayish layer of cell bodies kwown as the gray matter.

The gray matter covers an underlying mass of fibers called the white matter. the convolutions are made up of ridgelike bulges, known as gyri, separated by small grooves called sulci and larger grooves called fissures. Approximately two-thirds of the cortical surface is hidden in the folds of the sulci. The extensive convolutions enable a very large surface area of brain cortex-about 1.5m2 (16ft2)in an adult-to fit within the cranium. The pattern of these convolutions is similar, although not identical, in all humans
Head injury can initiate a cascade of damaging events. After a blow to the head, a person may be stunned or may become unconscious for a moment. This injury, called a concussion, usually leaves no permanent damage. If the blow is more severe and hemorrhage (excessive bleeding) and swelling occur, however, severe headache, dizziness, paralysis, a convulsion, or temporary blindness may result, depending on the area of the brain affected. Damage to the cerebrum can also result in profound personality changes.

The cerebrum and cerebellum of higher mammals are highly convoluted in order to fit the most gray matter surface within the confines of the cranium. Such highly convoluted brains are called gyrencephalic. Many lower mammals have a smooth, or lissencephalic (“smooth head”), cortical surface.


Your cerebrum makes up most of your brain. Your cerebrum solves problems and makes wishes. All of your thinking goes on in your cerebrum. Speech, language, and emotions come from your cerebrum, especially your cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex is the outer part of the cerebrum.
Your cerebrum also gets signals from your senses. Nerves carry the signals. Nerves from your eyes and ears go to parts of the cerebrum that let you see and hear. Nerves carry signals to your cerebrum that let you feel, smell, and taste.
Your cerebrum sends messages out along nerves. The messages tell your legs to walk or run. They tell your arm and hand to wave when you see a friend across the street.

There are so many benefits of reading , one of them is preventing Alzheimer's Disease !

Do you want to avoid the Alzheimer's disease ? It's easy ! Reading is the answer !

Reading is an activity that brings many benefits because by reading our knowledge will increase. Whether it is knowledge related to science and also just news or information. In addition, experts say that with a lot of reading then we would be separated from the brain disease. A researcher from the Henry Ford Health System, Dr. C. Edward Coffey, proving that just by reading the book one will be spared from the disease "Dementia". Dementia is a devastating disease of the brain tissue. When exposed to dementia, can be sure someone will be difficult to avoid senility. This occurs because the read to create such a buffer layer that protects the brain and replace changes.
Recent brain research has discovered the benefits of reading in growing dendrites, one of the components of the brain nerve cells or neurons. Read new words to stimulate the brain, because the brain likes to challenge and new things. Reading is an activity full of challenges and always bring a person to enter new territory.
Recognized or not, many people are smart and intelligent because of diligent reading. Reading also can make people more mature. Adults here means to have the mindset that no longer childish. By reading, people can look at every problem of life not as a burden, but a challenge that must be resolved. Problems in life is not viewed only from one side, but from different sides. People who look at problems from different sides of life is usually more prudent and wise in life.

However, it is very unfortunate that the reading interests of Indonesian society is still low. Taufiq Ismail a famous Indonesian writer says that. "We have become a nation paralyzed myopic reading books and writing. " This expression must have a very strong reason. And, true, our problem is the low interest in reading. If offered a book reading, not a few of us who reject the grounds do not have time to read. Our society is more like the medium of television from the book. Though it E. Jordan Ayan is also mentions that the television was still very behind compared toto the book . Television is a "passive media" that does not invite us to participate in learning or creative thinking. But this information does not come down to us because of our lack of reading.
Very different from the culture of reading Japanese society and other developed countries. Everywhere they always carry reading material. If there is spare time they are filled with reading. So it is not surprising that their science is more advanced than we are. Indonesian people prefer to girl talk and cultured oral. More of his daydream than do reading activities. This we can see from our own behavior as well as the people around us. In fact a lot of free time that we can use to read.
For example, while it is awaiting the departure of the aircraft, at the bus stop, terminal, even for people who have no health problems when reading on the vehicle, can utilize the time to read. Five minutes of reading can add insight to our knowledge. We can build motivation in us by extending the reading includes reading biographies of successful people.

One doctor from Saudi Arabia named Dr. Aidh Al Qarni in his book "Laa Tahzan" (Do not be sad) wrote 10 benefits of reading:

1. When busy reading, someone blocked entry into stupidity

2. Reading habits make people too busy to get in touch with the people lazy and not willing to work

3. With frequent reading, one can develop flexibility and fluency in spoken word

4. Reading helps develop thinking and clear thinking

5. Reading enhance one's knowledge and improve memory in understanding

6. With frequent reading someone can benefit from the experience of others, such as wise men follow the example of wisdom and intelligence scholars

7. With frequent reading, one can develop his abilities, both to receive and process science as well as to explore different disciplines and their applications in life

8. Confidence someone will increase when he read books that are useful

9. Reading helps a person to refresh your mind of clutter and save time for not in vain. With frequent reading, one can master a lot of words and study the various models of sentence

10. Furthermore, it can improve its ability to absorb concepts and to understand what it says on the line by line (to understand what is implied).

From several explanations above, we can draw the conclusion that the habit of always reading will bring huge benefits. Not only for ourselves but also for other people if we want to share my knowledge with them. I therefore invite the reader to turn the culture of reading all this anywhere and anytime there is a time for reading.

2. Sugar : 2 minutes
Even before you swallow, the sugar has lead to damage to the tooth enamel due in 2 minutes can trigger the growth of bad bacteria in the oral cavity. Once ingested, 20 teaspoons of sugar can reduce the ability of white blood cells to eradicate the bad bacteria that cause disease only within 2-5 hours afterwards.

3. Alcohol : 6 minutes
Within 6 minutes, 1 liter of beer or 3 glasses of wine alcohol can cause brain damage despite the reversible nature of the alias is not permanent. If you continue to get drunk and done too often, then the damage will be permanent.

4. Salt : 30 minutes
Salty foods can lead to hardening of the arteries, veins alias in just 30 minutes after being swallowed. Another impact of the excess salt is absorbed into the blood vessel so that fluid pressure rises and increases the risk of stroke and heart attack.

5. Caffeine : 30 minutes
Half an hour after drinking coffee, pressure and blood flow to the muscles will increase so that it becomes more stamina because of the release of adrenal hormones. In contrast, blood flow to organs other than muscle would be reduced, thereby reducing its performance.

6. Bad fats : 45 minutes
Saturated fat content in cheese, biscuits and other foods can increase the risk of blood clotting in less than 1 hour. The impact of course is a blockage of blood vessels that can trigger heart attacks. The good news, unsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids in nuts and fish oil can neutralize the effects of saturated fat

1. Salmon
Salmon is the best source of omega 3-fatty acids DHA and EPA, which are both essential for growth and development of brain function. The new research also showed that people who earn more fatty acid intake has a sharper mind and recorded satisfactory results in testing capabilities. Omega-3 fatty acid content per 100 grams of fish for salmon is 2.2 grams. Needs of children in omega 3 per day is 1.2 grams.

Hi friends. I'll to tell you something about earthquake. Firstly, do you know what causes an earthquake ? When Earth’s rocky outer surface shakes, we feel it as an earthquake. Earthquakes occur more than a thousand times a day around the world. Their movements may be so slight that they go unnoticed or so strong that they cause damage to buildings and loss of life. Read the following article to know it ! happy reading :D

Earthquakes are movements in Earth’s crust. The crust is Earth’s rocky outer layer, the solid ground that we live on. Earth’s crust is broken up into many gigantic sections of rigid rock called plates. The plates slide around slowly on a layer of hot, melted rock deep inside Earth. Sometimes the plates crash together. Sometimes the edge of one plate slides under another plate.

Faults are cracks in Earth’s crust between the huge plates. Earthquakes usually happen along faults. The plates on each side of a fault press against each other with tremendous force. An earthquake occurs when the rock along the edge suddenly gives way. Huge chunks of rock underground break and move. They can jolt upward or they can dive down. Sometimes the blocks of rock along a fault grind sideways past each other.

The place where the rock breaks is called the focus of the earthquake. It is usually underground. The breaking and moving makes waves travel through the ground. The waves go through the ground the way waves go through water. The ground ripples and shakes.

The place on the ground directly above the focus is called the epicenter. Earthquakes are strongest near their epicenters. Earthquake waves go out in big circles. Waves made by a powerful earthquake can travel thousands of miles!

Globalization may already be familiar to you . Globalization can accelerate the rate of economy anywhere. Technology developed over the years become a tool that can easily human works. Even to support it many new technologies are born for example a computer. Unfortunately, the speed of current technological improvement not followed by protecting awareness of surrounding environment. Massive oil drilling caused by the human vehicle is increasing along with increasing human populations from year to year. Finally, the waste produced from the vehicles, become one of the main factors polluted air around us. A lot of environmental damage that we often hear, for example, global warming ,acid rain, greenhouse effect, environmental pollution and so on.
The greenhouse effect caused by excessive carbon dioxide gas and causes global warming makes the earth hotter. The next phenomenon is acid rain, although it can prevent global warming but acid rain is more dangerous. humans are the main causes !

What is our brain made of ?

The parts of our brain
What kind of supercomputer can write stories, do math problems, draw pictures, play games, see through eyes, hear someone talking, talk back, and network with devices that make snacks in the microwave oven? Your brain and nervous system can do all these things. Do you think a computer will ever be as powerful as your brain?

You think with your brain. Your brain also sends signals through a network called your nervous system. It tells your legs to walk and run. It tells your hands and arms to put popcorn in the microwave. You don’t even have to think about many of the things your brain does. Your brain tells your heart to beat. It tells your lungs to breathe in and out, even when you are sleeping.

Your brain also controls your feelings. Such feelings as joy, sadness, love, anger, and fear all come from your brain.


Your brain is made of about 100 billion nerve cells. It looks like a lump of pinkish-gray jelly. The surface of the brain is wrinkled, and deep grooves divide it into sections. A network of blood vessels brings oxygen and food to your brain cells and carries away wastes. Your brain is protected by bone called your skull. Liquid and skinlike tissues also protect your brain.

When you were born, your brain weighed about • pounds (about 0.35 kilograms). Your brain keeps on growing while you grow up. By the time you reach the age of 20, your brain will weigh about 3 pounds (1.3 kilograms).

Your brain has three main parts. The parts are called the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem. The cerebrum makes up the largest part of the brain. The cerebellum is underneath the back part of the cerebrum. The brain stem connects with the spinal cord at the bottom of the brain.

Your cerebrum and cerebellum are divided into two parts. These parts are called the right brain and the left brain. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. The left side of your brain controls the right side of your body. Nerves from the right and left side of your body cross over when they enter your brain.
