Ears of orange maize lines following harvesting, on experimental plots at the Zambia Agriculture Research Institute (ZARI). This maize is orange because it contains high levels of beta-carotene, the same substance that give carrots their color. Beta-carotene is a provitamin, and is converted to vitamin A within the human body.

Maize is the staple food for more than one billion people in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, but it is generally poor in provitamin A. It is estimated that between one third and half of all Zambian children suffer from vitamin A deficiency, which weakens their vision and immune systems, retards their growth, makes them more vulnerable to various diseases, and reduces their quality of life. In all, night blindness and other health problems caused by vitamin A deficiency affect more than 5 million children and nearly 10 million pregnant women, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

CIMMYT works with ZARI as part of HarvestPlus, a CGIAR challenge program that uses biofortification to improve the nutritional value of staple foods. The HarvestPlus maize team uses conventional breeding to create maize hybrids and open-pollinated varieties rich in provitamin A. In the research shown here, ZARI is evaluating advanced experimental varieties for yield and agronomic characteristics; the best of these will be tested for provitamin A content. Furthermore, scientists in CIMMYT and other organizations are now producing a new generation of varieties with more provitamin A than ever before. Alleles that can boost beta-carotene levels in grain, rare and previously found only in temperate maize, are being bred into tropical maize for developing countries.

Endometrium

The type of tissue that is found in the inner lining of the uterus is known as the endometrium tissue. This tissue can develop outside of the uterus, in such cases it causes a condition known as endometriosis.

The average menstrual cycle for a woman is 28 days, and during those twenty eight days the inner lining of the uterus goes through a few changes. In order to prepare for pregnancy, the endometrium thickens as it develops. Should there not be a pregnancy; the tissue is then shed via bleeding. This bleeding is caused by the hormones progesterone and estrogen and it happened monthly.

Endometriosis

The endometrium that develops outside of the uterus still behaves as though it was growing inside the uterus. If the tissue is growing outside the uterus it may also develop in other areas:

Fallopian Tubes

Rectal portion of the colon

Ovary

Surface of the uterus

Ureters and bladder

Bowel

The cul-de-sac

Inside lining of the abdomen

Pelvis and abdomen

There are rare cases where the endometrium has/will grow in unrelated areas of the body. Should the endometrium develop in the ovaries it can cause a cysts, this cyst like condition is called endometrioma.

Endometrial tissue, whether inside or outside of the uterus, is affected by the woman’s menstrual cycle, especially the hormones progesterone and estrogen. The reaction of the endometrium comes in the form of monthly bleeding. If the monthly bleeding happens outside of the uterus it can cause scar tissue to develop, this scar tissue is also known as adhesions. Adhesions or scarring can cause discomfort and pain. There are times that the adhesions can bind organs together. The symptoms will worsen if not treated.

Cause

Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear cause of endometriosis. There are a couple of theories, during the menstrual period, there is a small amount of blood cells that flow from the fallopian tubes into the abdomen. If a woman has endometriosis, these blood cells stick to the pathway and start to develop there instead of flowing out as they should. There is another theory that endometrial cells are carried to other areas of the body by the lymph and the blood vessels.

Women at Risk

The majority of women that are dealing with endometriosis are between the ages of 30 and 40. This doesn’t mean that women of other ages are not affected. Endometriosis can affect anyone female that menstruates. Those that menstruate but do not procreate are commonly affected by this condition. Family history may also play a role in whether a woman suffers from endometriosis. It has been noted that women who have a sister, mother or daughter with endometriosis increases the likelihood that she will have endometriosis. It has also been found that 75% of all women suffering from chronic pelvic pain also have endometriosis.

Symptoms

Difficulty conceiving

Pelvic Pain

Frequent menstrual bleeding more than every month

Pain during bowel movements, during sex, just prior to or during menstruation, or during urination.

These symptoms can also be indicative of other health issues as well. It is important that if any of these symptoms are noticed you consult your Houston Gynecologist.

Note the severity of the condition is not necessarily one and the same with the level of pain felt. The pain can be mild to moderate and the severity of the condition can be quite severe. Conversely, the pain can be intense and the severity of the condition very mild. There may be no pain felt at all, unfortunately this makes it difficult for a woman to know she has a condition that requires medical attention. The only way she finds out is that she attempts to get pregnant. One third of all infertile women also have endometriosis.

Diagnosis

You should contact your Houston Gynecologist if you notice any of the signs or symptoms of endometriosis. They may want to do a pelvic exam. If all other causes of pelvic pain can be ruled out, endometriosis can be treated without surgery or further examinations.

Endometriosis can be severe, moderate or mild. The best way to determine the severity if the case is via laparoscopy procedure. This will allow the doctor to look inside the body. Should they find any endometrial tissue upon exam they may opt to remove the tissue right away. This is all done under general anesthesia.

Treatment

The severity of your endometriosis will determine the treatment option your Houston Gynecologist will recommend. Treatment will also be impacted by your decision on future pregnancies. Treatment for endometriosis generally consists of medication or surgery or the combination of both. Treatment will alleviate infertility and pain, but these symptoms can reoccur after treatment.

Cracked Open is Miriam Zoll’s eye-opening account of growing into womanhood with the simultaneous opportunities offered by the women’s movement and new discoveries in reproductive technologies. Influenced by pervasive media and cultural messages suggesting that science had finally eclipsed Mother Nature, Zoll –– like millions of women –– delays motherhood until the age of 40.

When things don’t progress as she had hoped, she and her husband enter a science-fiction world of medical seduction, capitalist conception and bioethical quagmires. Desperate to conceive, they turn to unproven treatments and procedures only to learn that the odds of becoming parents through reproductive medicine are far less than they and their generation had been led to believe..

Many guys assume that yeast infections are a women’s issue, and that they don’t really impact penis health. However, if a man’s partner suspects that she may have this common (and generally harmless) malady, he should take measures to protect his own sexual health. The truth is, men can get yeast infections – and they’re less likely than females to know they have them. Here’s what you need to know about yeast infections and how they can impact men’s health.

What Is a Yeast Infection?

Yeast live all over the human body and are typically present in a normal, healthy vagina. These organisms thrive in warm, moist environments, so this part of a woman’s body is ideal for habitation. Women generally always have yeast in their vaginas – however, they can become a problem when growth becomes uncontrolled.

The most common type of yeast to inhabit the vagina is called Candida albicans. Its growth is naturally kept in check by a healthy bacteria called lactobacillus. Does that term sound familiar? If so, it’s probably because you’ve heard about it as a probiotic. These healthy bacteria line our gut and intestinal tract, and they are also present in the vagina; their presence prevents yeast from overgrowing.

However, if a woman’s system is out of whack, she may not have enough healthy bacteria to keep the yeast in check. Often, yeast infections arise as a result of taking antibiotics, as they kill off the healthy bacteria within the microbiome. Other causes of yeast infections include wearing tight clothing, being pregnant and taking birth control pills.

How do Yeast Infections Impact Men?

So what does this mean for men, exactly? If a man’s partner has a yeast infection, it’s possible that she could transmit it via sexual intercourse. Therefore, men should be extra-aware of the possibility of a yeast infection if they are having sex with a woman who has one (however, according to Healthline, this generally uncomplicated malady is not considered an STI). On the other hand, this is not the only way for men to become infected.

Remember how we explained that candida (yeast) naturally live in the body? They also live on the surface of the skin, including the head of the penis. Aside from having intercourse with a woman who has a yeast infection, men can get them by taking antibiotics or by wearing tight or damp clothing for extended periods of time. Men who

Symptoms of Male Yeast Infections

According to the Mayo Clinic, men who experience the following symptoms should get checked for a yeast infection:
* Itching of the penis;
* Redness of the penile skin;
* A burning sensation during urination;
* Moist skin (sometimes tinted with a creamy white glaze) or abnormal shininess around the penis area.

How to Treat a Male Yeast Infection

Because the symptoms of a yeast infection resemble those of numerous other conditions, it is important to see a doctor the first time you experience them to rule out any other conditions. Most yeast infections are easily treated with an over-the-counter antifungal cream.

Additionally, if your partner is infected, be sure you are both treated. You may also want to abstain from intercourse until the problem is taken care of, as it’s possible for sexual partners to keep re-infecting each other.

Preventing Male Yeast Infections

To prevent yeast infections from occurring, if men who aren’t circumcised should be sure to keep the penis area clean and well-moisturized, and allow it to “breathe” every once in a while by wearing loose-fitting clothing, as yeast overgrowth often becomes an issue when the body is sweaty and not exposed to air flow.

Keeping the penis clean by washing with a mild cleanser and allowing it to air-dry is always a safe bet. Keep the area moisturized afterward to keep the skin healthy and vibrant. A penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) that contains high-quality moisturizing agents such as vitamin E and Shea butter is an optimum way to keep the penis skin hydrated and healthy, helping men to avoid some of the conditions that can promote fungal overgrowth.

Dry Penis Ruining Sex? How to Talk to Him about Penile Health

The Beth Chatto Gardens – Weeping Willow or Sweeping Willow?
woman health
Image by antonychammond
One of the greats of British gardening, Beth Chatto OBE has entered the realm of national treasuredom. Plants-woman, designer, author, 10-time gold-medal winner at Chelsea, holder of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Victoria Medal of Honour and, of course, the owner of the celebrated Beth Chatto Gardens at Elmstead Market, near Colchester, in Essex – her horticultural skills seem boundless. With the concept of “right plant, right place” – in other words, put a plant in conditions close to its natural habitat and it will thrive without help – running as a thread throughout her career, she has inspired a generation of gardeners to take their lead from nature.

The garden has been the inspiration for many of her influential books, including The Dry Garden (1978), The Damp Garden (1992) and Beth Chatto’s Gravel Garden (2000). It was created on land that was previously part of a fruit farm, owned by her late husband, Andrew, 14 years her senior, whom she married in 1943. “We met during the war,” she says. “I was a schoolgirl of about 17, considering going to college.”

A scholarly man, who died in 1999 after suffering from emphysema for 25 years, Andrew devoted much of his life to research into plant habitats. Chatto says it was he who inspired her interest in gardening and refers to him frequently, modestly deferring to his superior knowledge. “He’s such an important influence in my life,” she says. “My parents were keen, but they had a conventional garden, using mostly cultivars.”

The couple lived initially in his parents’ in Colchester, but in the late 1950s moved to a modernist house they’d built on the edge of the farm – where Chatto still lives today. Even inside, the garden is a constant presence. Large windows frame views and vignettes of the planting on every side and invite a tapestry of textures, colours and shapes into the house.

Chatto credits her husband almost entirely for her success. “My two daughters were teenagers before I began to think about making a business,” she says. “Andrew had looked after us and given me the security and freedom to experiment.” Her husband’s failing health and the trials of running a fruit farm concentrated her mind on developing the garden commercially, though what we see today took time to emerge.

“For the first seven or eight years, much of the land was a wilderness,” she recalls. Yet there were assets, too, not least a rare natural water source in the drought-prone east of Essex, where rainfall can be as little as 20in a year. “There were a few fine 300-year-old oaks and a spring-fed ditch ran through the hollow.” Today, the ornamental gardens cover about five acres; a further 10 are occupied by the nursery, which opened in 1967, and working areas.

Finding water was not the only challenge. “There was land that was so dry, the native weeds curled up and died. That eventually became my gravel garden,” she says. This she created in 1991, on the site of a car park. Apart from watering in the young, drought-tolerant plants during the first year, she has never artificially irrigated it.

Chatto has a knack for turning problem areas into an asset, and there are several distinct areas in the garden, each requiring a different approach. The large water gardens are dominated by a series of ponds surrounded by bog plants and swathes of lush grass. A long, shady walk runs parallel to one of the boundaries. Here, shade-tolerant planting – including ferns, tiarella and pulmonaria – carpet the ground beneath oaks and other specimen trees added by Chatto. By contrast, the gravel area is a mass of sun-loving perennials, with asters, rudbeckias and sedums glowing through hazy grasses.

The garden may have started out to give pleasure to a family, but it has developed into a self-contained horticultural powerhouse, attracting visitors from all over the world – about 40,000 a year. “It’s like sowing an acorn, which is my symbol,” says Chatto. “I have an acorn and an oak tree on a weather vane, which was a wonderful present from my staff.” Incredibly, it is tended by only one full-time and four part-time gardeners and volunteers – many of whom are foreign students. Chatto remains resolutely hands-on and is keen to pass on the knowledge she has gained through experience.

Chatto uses grasses brilliantly, and was doing so long before it became fashionable. She creates seemingly effortless but thoroughly satisfying combinations. Therein lies her genius – there may be others out there with an equal understanding of plants, but nobody else has her eye. Shape, scale, proportion, texture, colour – all are balanced with the skill of a plate-spinner.

She also factors in horticultural considerations – how big a plant will get, how fast or slowly it will grow, what conditions it needs to thrive and how it is maintained. The result is a garden that works on every level – practical, horticultural and aesthetic – with layer upon layer of carefully placed plants, as enticing asmillefeuillepastry. It all seems entirely uncontrived, but, on closer inspection, one notices geometric lines and angles. The big picture is built up gradually, with small groupings of three or more plants forming a satisfying melange of verticals and horizontals, and fluffy and solid plants. “I need the trees and shrubs to form a background, to paint the sky and lead the eye upwards towards the clouds,” Chatto explains. “Then one adds the embroidery, which I enjoy so much.” Nothing is allowed to get out of hand, but stagnation is not an option, either. “A garden is not a picture hanging on a wall,” she says. “It changes not only from hour to hour, week to week or month to month, but from year to year.”

Chatto has certainly noticed the effects of climate change. Drought is nothing new in her part of the world, where (the past two years aside) there is sometimes no rain for up to 10 weeks in the summer. “The most interesting change is the lack of cold weather,” she says. “Only 10 years ago, we had icicles hanging down, and when the children were little, they used to skate. Now we hardly have enough ice to bear a duck.” From an article by Rachel de Thame

Many women are proud of their partner’s sexual equipment, but that pride can take a hit when a man comes down with a case of the dreaded dry penis. Skin issues are common on male genitalia, but that doesn’t change the fact that a patch of dry, flaky, or scaly skin on a guy’s tent pole can be more than a bit off-putting. Sometimes it is in the best interest of a woman to take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and have a talk with her man about proper penis health and treating dry skin.

Penis health
Here’s a little secret for the ladies: although many men may tend to think with their penises, they don’t necessarily think about their penises. In other words, for many men, the penis enters their consciousness only in terms of how ardent a lover it makes them; too often, they don’t devote much time thinking about its overall health – until an issue arises.

Many men may not even be aware that their penis has any skin issues. They may notice that they’re scratching more often, and when the skin gets flaky or scaly, they kind of have to take note. But they’re likely to not take the time before then to examine their tool and see if there’s evidence of dryness or signs that skin issues could be developing.

What causes dry penis skin?
Obviously, lack of appropriate moisture is the cause of dry skin on the penis, but what causes this lack of hydration on the organ? After all, as many women have undoubtedly noticed, the penis area tends to be rather moist; there’s often a fair amount of sweat there.

But that sweat is one of the reasons for the dryness. When the body releases sweat, it is expelling moisture that then needs to be replenished. In addition, the heat near the penis – which results from factors such as increased blood flow when aroused, the presence of a healthy bush of hair and the warmth generated by being kept beneath both a pair of underwear (often tight) and a pair of pants (also often tight) – contributes to the dryness.

Furthermore, the penis skin, being very thin, is especially sensitive to chemicals and other potential irritants. Sometimes a soap or laundry detergent may be too harsh for the manly little fellow. Psoriasis or another skin-based condition may also cause dryness and itching. And masturbating without sufficient lubrication can also create a dry skin situation.

What to say
Guys tend to be a bit sensitive about their members, but it’s important for a woman to bring up a dry penis or other skin issues that she observes. For the best results, a woman should try this approach:

* She can start off by complimenting the partner on his member. Praise its looks, it stamina and its power.

* She should mention that while observing its beauty, she noticed that the head looked a little dry and that the skin seemed a bit cracked.

* Voice concerns about how that must be a little painful and that she’s worried about any damage coming to a body part that means so much to her.

* Bring up how much fun it would be for them to re-moisturize the penis – together.

To be most effective, a woman should then have on hand a first rate penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) that she can help apply to her partner’s dry penis right then and there. She will need to make sure that the chosen cream is solid in the moisturizing department: one with a high end soothing emollient like shea butter and a natural hydrator like vitamin E is the best bet. For even better results, the cream should also include vitamin A; its anti-bacterial qualities help to fight unwanted penis odor (another one of those issues of which a woman may be more aware than a man.)

Sexual Health Facts about the Female Anatomy – Just for Men

Boobies. Ta-Tas. Milk-makers. Fun bags. Whatever a guy likes to call them, the female breasts are a source of endless fascination to most men. Whether a guy has seen no breasts at all yet, or has had the privilege of being introduced to many, he doesn’t actually own the equipment himself, so this part of the female anatomy surely holds some mystery to him. Here are 7 facts guys are wondering about their girl’s girls and overall sexual health, as well as a thing or two about keeping his own equipment in top condition. After all, a healthy penis is important for a healthy sex life.

1. What is the average size? Of course there is a wide variation ranging from women who are a petite size AA, all the way to a buxom FF and beyond! The average breast size fills out a B or a C cup in a bra and weighs about 1.5 pound each, though woman with denser breast tissue may tip the scales a bit higher in the boob department.

2. Do fake boobs feel different? Yes. While some types of implants may have a more realistic feeling than others, most men state they can tell the falsies from the real deal. (Incidentally, most women notice a decrease in sensitivity after the surgery – something to consider if a woman is contemplating implants)

3. Don’t touch please! Guys may wonder why sometimes a girl swats his hand away like it’s going to bite her when he reaches for the goods. Simple answer: sometimes the boobs hurt! When a woman is coming up on her period, is pregnant, or often right after sex, the entire breast – and especially the nipple area – may become hypersensitive and painful. So if she is saying no touch, a guy better listen to her or risk getting slapped!

4. No two woman’s nipples are alike – Sort of like a snowflake that resides on the breast, there are a wide variety of nipple shapes, colors, sizes and textures. But hey, isn’t that half the fun?

5. Which is more sensitive: Leftie or righty? It turns out that more women do find their left nipple to be super charged in terms of erotic sensitivity, though this is not a hard and fast rule. Don’t be afraid to ask her which one feels better; she may well have a favorite!

6. Some nipples are “innies” – What guy, as a kid, didn’t lift up his shirt to compare belly buttons with his friend’s in the debate between “innies” and “outies?” Nipples can behave in much the same way. Though an “outie” is the standard most men are accustomed to, nipples are sometimes inverted, giving them an “innie” appearance. Luckily, it’s no big deal and they still have the same sensations as their erect counterparts.

7. Is there such a thing as a boob-gasm? Actually, yes. While not all women can hit the high notes from nipple stimulation alone, some women can orgasm from the right amount and type of nipple play. Talk about making a guy’s job easier!

Improving Sexual Health

When a guy is lucky enough to get a close-up view of the female breasts, chances are that things are about to go even further. Therefore, it is essential to be on top of the penis care routine to make sure everything is in working order. Just as women have to take care of their breasts with monthly self-exams for breast cancer, men should also be conducting a monthly testicular self-exam to make sure everything is staying on the up and up. Gently palpating the groin area – especially the scrotum – in search of unusual lumps and bumps can save a man’s life. In addition to monthly exams, men should also be engaging in daily self-care of the penis by using a penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil), which can be applied immediately after the shower for best results. A health lotion containing alpha lipoic acid, among other penis nutrients, can help fight free radicals in the body which contribute both to penis aging and wrinkling and to more serious conditions like cancer. Remember, a healthy penis is the foundation of a healthy sex life.

About Women’s Health and Pregnancy

Camp Women 3

Image by mknobil

There is no normal, healthy condition as stressful and dangerous as pregnancy. Many parts of a woman’s normal lifestyle can become a health risk when a woman is pregnant. Every woman should see her doctor as soon as possible when she suspects she may be pregnant and she should follow the doctor’s suggestions; maintain good nutrition and much more.

The good thing is that usually, the things a pregnant woman gives up are bad for her and the things she needs to do are good for her. Usually, women’s health and pregnancy go hand in hand.

Health Times Two

A woman who expects to become pregnant should already be living a healthy lifestyle. Smoking is possibly the worst thing for women’s health and pregnancy. Smoking increases a woman’s risk of heart disease, lung disease and can adversely affect just about every physical system in the body. Don’t wait until you are pregnant to quit. You wouldn’t invite a stranger into a smoke-filled home, don’t do it to your child. Begin your prenatal vitamin regimen as soon as possible including folic acid and iron.

And remember, the vitamins are all the “eating for two” you need to do for quite a while. Avoid toxic substances. Even paint fumes can be harmful to women’s health and pregnancy. Don’t eat undercooked meats or clean up after your cat while pregnant. Toxoplasmosis is very dangerous to an unborn baby. Increase your hand washing, too.

Weight gain is normal during pregnancy. If you are over – or underweight normally, you may need to consult a nutritionist during your pregnancy to monitor your weight gain and diet. If morning sickness is a problem, try eating six small meals instead of three large ones. Don’t let the queasy feelings make you skip too many meals.

Medication can be a problem during pregnancy. If you have a chronic disorder that requires medication, consult your doctor as soon as possible – even before becoming pregnant if possible. Sometimes women’s health and pregnancy become a tradeoff temporarily. That goes for over the counter medications, too. Check with your doctor before taking pain killers or cold medication. Cold medication can contain alcohol which is harmful to the baby. That also means cutting out alcoholic beverages while pregnant and nursing. Consult your doctor about physical activity.

Usually, the amount and type of exercise that was normal prior to pregnancy will be safe during at least most of the pregnancy. New types of exercise should be monitored by your doctor. By taking the sensible precautions, women’s health and pregnancy can get along just fine.

She’s not a singular phenomenon: fitness fanatics and semi-anonymous physique models (almost always women) are as integral to Instagram as shots of toes, sunsets, and brunches served on tables made of reclaimed wood. There are hard bodies, like @FollowtheLita, and softer bodies, like Selter’s favorite, @AshleySky. Yogis are their own special subset.
Caitlin Turner, aka @gypsetgoddess, a yogi with over 120,000 followers (who says she’s also a @jenselter fan), says, “Living a fit lifestyle has become a huge phenomenon in our society, so it’s not surprising that it has also become a phenomenon on Instagram. People love to feel inspired, and the yogis of Instagram are definitely an inspiring and friendly group.”
Selter says that she, too, is in it for the inspiration, and her rear is just an end to that end. She is savvy enough to know that a shot of her (admittedly very cute) dog only snags a few hundred new follows, and that doesn’t really help the 20-year-old’s overall goal: to motivate people to be healthy and fit. “Motivate” comes up many times in conversation with Selter.

Still, “It’s so crazy. I never expected [my following] to get as high as it did. When my friends graduated from high school, I went to cosmetology school for makeup, and on the side I was working at a gym. And I’ve always been a social media freak. The computer, tumblr, facebook, et cetera,” she explains by phone from New York City, where she is the spokesperson for a fitness company called Gameplan Nutrition (a gig, soon to be followed by her own line of workout clothes, courtesy of her immense social-media success)
From all the working out at the gym job, she explains, her butt began to plump up. As a teenager, she hadn’t considered herself model-y or a workout fanatic, and nobody had commented on her backside being remarkable. She was a self-proclaimed computer nerd who found college to be “a waste of time unless you know what you want to do.” And Selter seemed to know what she wanted to do.Related: A Body for SIN: My Week as a V.I.P.

“I noticed that fitness was a big thing on Instagram. So I made an account called @motivationforfitness. I would post random motivated people working out, because I love motivating quotes, and people working out.Then she created a tumblr, toofit2quit (which has since become jenselter), where she posted pictures of herself. More established fitness accounts began reblogging her photos without credit, so she reached out to each person and site to ask that they link back to her, and the magic began to happen.
Though the @jenselter account is her main stage, @motivationforfitness now has 329,000 followers, and her Facebook fan page has 486,111 likes. Once her personal handle hit 300,000 followers, sponsorship and “shout-out” offers piled up, from companies like Nike, Lululemon and New Balance (to name three of her favorites). Though Selter declines to put exact figures on-record, she can make thousands for a simple selfie by the barbells. Her sole concern is not money, though.
