When a stomach that is too bloated, people will associate with the consumption of too much food. And vice versa. No mistake when linking belly with diet, stomach (from the section below chest and above the hip) does have a primary function as a place of digestion and absorption of food.

Inside there are digestive organs such as stomach, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, appendix, large intestine, which is up to the main part of the human digestive system. Here also the liver, kidney, pancreas, and spleen, supporting the digestive process.

When consuming food, the digestive organs and organ supporting food to break down into substances that are needed as well as the cell body. However, the amount of intake of these substances can happen difference, whether caused by the amount of food that is too much and the process of digesting a less than optimal.

After eating foods containing sugar or carbohydrates, dihasilakn sugar in the blood. Necessarily organ pancreas to release insulin enzyme into energy required to disassemble the cell. When disassembling the blood sugar less than optimal, suppose that due to the reduced effectiveness of insulin by an enzyme in blood fats or sugars intake too much, then the residual sugar will be stored as fat in the body (visceral fat).

He distributed the abdominal cavity, between the internal organs and chest cavity. Direct effects of excess fat in the body, causing people suffer from central obesity. In women, female sex hormone (estrogen) helps the distribution of fat into the buttocks, thighs and hips, thus reducing the risk of central obesity in the productive age. Who’s in men, more fat distributed in the stomach because of different sex hormones.

When a woman enters menopause, the fat from the buttocks, thighs, and hips will move to the waist in other words more easy-going central obesity.

Unfortunately, not only looks bad when a person has central obesity.

“Obesity is also central to the cause of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disorders,” said Dr. Ralph Girson, SpPD, Progress of the Royal Hospital, Jakarta.

Risk of Stomach Buncit
Belly bulge is not only an impact on the aesthetics of physical appearance, but also carry health risks are not trivial. Overall, it can be said accretion abdominal circumference or central obesity patients is associated with disease risk and ultimately reduce life expectancy. There is a reduction of life expectancy in patients with obesity, about seven years, even in smokers and obesity decreased life expectancy around 13 years.

However, the risk of any disease that lies behind the stomach that bulge?

Insulin Resistance
Increased abdominal circumference, automatic increase in body fat tissue. This can cause ganggan insulin (insulin resistance). Obesity is leading to high free fatty acid in the blood stimulates the release of cytokines that can lower insulin sensitivity.

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Conditions of insulin resistance that continues with a diet high in calories, making the body try to compensate by producing extra insulin. The goal is to balance the intake (intake) calorie and stabilize blood sugar. Unfortunately, this ability is highly dependent B-cells in the pancreas. If the adaptability of cells that regulates insulin production increase is reduced, then a glucose tolerance when the body fails to be a disorder of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Coronary Heart
Conditions of low insulin sensitivity and also caused abnormalities in the metabolism of the body, such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and formation of pro-coagulant (blood coagulation accelerator). These are risk factors causing coronary heart disease.


special properties of plastics as packaging materials, such as lightweight, simple, and flexible, making packaging and plastic containers into many people’s favorite. However, in fact, there are dangers hidden behind plastic.

Inside there are a variety of plastic chemicals, such as monomer and plasticizer. Some are harmful to humans. Contacts between the plastic and packaged foods that can cause the displacement of plastic molecules into the food. This phenomenon is called migration.

There are several factors that influence migration, which is a type of food or beverages, length of exposure, and temperature. “Foods or beverages containing hot and most risky fat molecules trigger the displacement of plastic,” said Dr. Yadi Haryadi, food science and technology experts from the Institut Pertanian Bogor.

In addition, the longer the food or beverages packed in plastic, more plastic components will be moved. “While oil including material that quickly dissolves plastic components,” Hadi said in a seminar which I held in 2010 Healthy Children by Tupperware in Jakarta (07/14/2010).

In the event of migration, as well as migrating otherwise hazardous materials, and amounts exceeding the threshold, then it certainly can cause interference on health. “This is because we eat foods or beverages contaminated by chemicals in plastic,” he explained.

For that, use a plastic container that has a quality assurance and food safety and use according to the instructions for use of the container. Better to avoid packing food or beverages in temperatures over 60 degrees, and do not buy the hot liquid and greasy foods, like meatballs, packaged in plastic bags.


- About 32 000 lives could be saved each year if they are aged over 50 years of routine check-up by colonoscopy procedure.

Colorectal cancer is the leading cause of death in the world and ranked second in the United States after lung cancer. Yet millions of people still do not undergo recommended, according a new report Institution of the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) this weekend.

Colonoscopy examination is one of the recommended procedure to determine if a person has colorectal cancer or colon cancer. This procedure is usually performed after a series of other clinical examinations, such as physical examination, rectal examination with a finger, and laboratory examination (examination of faeces).

“Tragically, one out of three people who should be tested for colon cancer have not done so,” said CDC Director Thomas Frieden said in a statement.

“Every year, 12,000 people were saved from the results of mammography, and as many as 32 000 more people could be saved if every adult aged 50 years or more it checked regularly to explore the possibilities of colon cancer,” he said.

CDC, which compares that figure with the examination of breast cancer (the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the U.S.), said, “More than 22 million men and women not undergoing colon cancer that potentially save lives.”

Data in the U.S. in 2008 showed, those who have health insurance are listed as among the most easily get access to colonoscopy, and reached 66 percent, compared to non-insurance that only 36 percent.

Stop complaining

Health Care June 6th, 2010

If we continue to just complain about our jobs, our minds will be more depressed and jobs will not be finished too right? Try looking for a little positive value that can be taken, let’s just say this as a learning tool for you. Or think of something interesting that you would receive a salary.

Determine priorities

Indeed we can not do all the work at once, then decide where formerly a more important and must be completed. Do not think of another job, because it will make you disturbed concentration and slower job completion.

Stay relaxed and rested

How busy you are, when the hour break, use the best time to relax. If possible, use your break time to sleep at least 15 minutes. This can make your body and mind refreshed.

Eat nutritious food

If you’re already very tired, try to go on leave on your boss. Use your time off to visit places that you like, such as a trip to the mountains or the beach. If possible, take the child or your family to vacation together.

Find another job

This is one option if you felt it was no longer able to perform your job. Try another search for a different job and your passion. But consider this formerly with previously cooked.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Efforts to get someone’s attention can be quite varied. He bought her flowers, give her a gift or extra attention may be one of them. But how can you believe that he’s interested in you? Consider his voice. Because, maybe this is one answer.

A recent study published in the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior states that sound levels can be used as an indication of increasing sexual desire of the opposite sex.

“The voice can communicate social and biological information that can indicate whether someone excited or vice versa,” said Susan Hughes, an assistant professor of psychology at Albright College in Reading Pennsylvania, USA.

Hughes and his team conducted research by studying the behavior of 45 students, average age 21 years. There were 20 male and 25 female students were involved. As many as 79 percent of this group consisted of whites, 12.5 percent of African-Americans, Asians 6.3 percent and 2.1 percent Hispanic.

During the study, respondents using communication via Skype. Their voices were recorded and analyzed. They called and left a voice message after seeing the frontal facial image fictional individuals who receive the message. This fictitious individuals have varying appeal.

“We found that both sexes use a lower voice and show a higher level of excitement when talking with the targets of the opposite sex,” said Hughes.

Hughes initially thought the women would raise his voice control to sound more feminine, but it happened just the opposite.

“It seems to be stereotyped in our culture that a woman’s voice is hoarse and low tone indicating a woman is sexy. This indicates, the motivation to show naked women could be motivated to speak out against the more feminine,” she said.

Hughes said, lowering her voice to show attraction is probably a learned behavior from cultural stereotypes conveyed through the media. “When a woman is naturally lowered his voice, it can be considered as an attempt to sound more seductive or attractive, and because it serves as a signal of romanticism,” said Hughes.

There is much evidence that shows that someone is manipulating her voice when talking with different people and in different situations. For example, a woman’s voice sounded more competent when talking to their bosses rather than subordinates or peers. While the male voice more competent when talking with her friends. People also tend to raise their voice when trying to deceive people.
