Regular Health Care

Health is an important factor in day to day life. Whatever you do it affects your health. In other words one can say that human being totally depends on health. If proper care has not been taken then health can take you for a ride anytime anywhere. Neglecting health can cause severe damage to body functionality. So it is necessary to have a basic knowledge about the factors responsible for health. So that one can take proper action if something wrong has been identified during the checkup.
The basic rules can be followed to keep our selves healthy. For example if we consider brain, there are many basic things which can be taken care of to avoid damage to it.


1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.
8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

So as far as health care is concerned there is no harm in it. It’s always good to have a good health. But there is a cost involvement while going for regular checkups.
There might be few ethical issues involved during checkup, e.g. women going for through checkup might not prefer to a male doctor because there are chances of miss conduct. So proper care should be taken while one a preferring to have a through checkup.

Government should make it compulsory for the people who are 40 plus to have a through checkups after every few months and for below that age once in a six month. Apart from these there should be regular issues from the government regarding the regular health care. Educating people will play an important role and this could be done through introducing a subject at the school level and few funds should be given by the government to aid an individual expense especially for senior citizens.
