This issue of men being able to same their nipples almost anywhere without drawing the attention of anyone or without being frowned at has been debated severally, this post however would explain why women are not allowed to expose their nipples in public places just as men can do.
According to the explanation by this lady who wrote this piece! We are made to understand exactly why it is so.
**
If you’re a man, you probably don’t think much about your nipples. And why should you? Hardly anybody notices them, or has rules about them, or asks you to cover them up—except in obvious places, like at the office or in Victoria’s Secret.
I’m a woman, so mine are obscene, indecent, lewd, banned on Instagram and other social media, and against the law in most places.
I am writing this story on a park bench just outside of Chicago. If I took my shirt and bra off right now, Illinois law says it would be an act of public indecency. It would be considered a lewd exposure of my body done with intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desire of another person. That’s a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. And because it’d be considered a sex offense, I may even have to register as a sex offender.
But you guys? You go right ahead and take your shirt off, join me on this park bench, walk down the street, post selfies on Instagram, and otherwise flaunt your little pink nips. Heck, you can even rub them with your fingers like you’re reenacting a scene from Showgirls. No one will care.
I will be over here putting an X of black tape over mine; camouflaging the very heart of my areola will keep me out of jail.

FIRST OF ALL! WHAT IS LSD? (LSD: "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide") This drug is one of the very highly used drug amongst ganstars, music artistes, and drug slaves. the effect of this drug is very unusual compared to other types that only makes the user high over a period of time and then leave you having your real self back. So what are the harmful side effects of this drug?





The drug which is also described or known as "Hallucinogens" is quite a very dangerous pill ever invented.


How Do Hallucinogens Work?

Classic hallucinogens are thought to produce their perception-altering effects by acting on neural circuits in the brain that use the neurotransmitter serotonin (Passie, 2008; Nichols, 2004; Schindler, 2012; Lee, 2012). Specifically, some of their most prominent effects occur in the prefrontal cortex—an area involved in mood, cognition, and perception—as well as other regions important in regulating arousal and physiological responses to stress and panic.

What Are the Short-Term Effects of Hallucinogens?

Ingesting hallucinogenic drugs can cause users to see images, hear sounds, and feel sensations that seem real but do not exist. Their effects typically begin within 20 to 90 minutes of ingestion and can last as long as 12 hours. Experiences are often unpredictable and may vary with the amount ingested and the user’s personality, mood, expectations, and surroundings. The effects of hallucinogens like LSD can be described as drug-induced psychosis—distortion or disorganization of a person’s capacity to recognize reality, think rationally, or communicate with others. Users refer to LSD and other hallucinogenic experiences as “trips” and to acute adverse or unpleasant experiences as “bad trips.” On some trips, users experience sensations that are enjoyable and mentally stimulating and that produce a sense of heightened understanding. Bad trips, however, include terrifying thoughts and nightmarish feelings of anxiety and despair that include fears of losing control, insanity, or death.
Like LSD and psilocybin, DMT produces its effects through action at serotonin (5-HT) receptors in the brain (Strassman, 1996). Some research has suggested that DMT occurs naturally in the human brain in small quantities, leading to the hypothesis that release of endogenous DMT may be involved in reports of alien abductions, spontaneous mystical experiences, and near-death experiences, but this remains controversial (Barker, 2012).
Specific short-term effects of LSD, psilocybin, peyote, DMT, and ayahuasca include:
LSD
  • Increased blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature
  • Dizziness and sleeplessness
  • Loss of appetite, dry mouth,and sweating
  • Numbness, weakness, and tremors
  • Impulsiveness and rapid emotional shifts that can range from fear to euphoria, with transitions so rapid that the user may seem to experience several emotions simultaneously
Psilocybin
  • Feelings of relaxation (similar to effects of low doses of marijuana)
  • Nervousness, paranoia, and panic reactions
  • Introspective/spiritual experiences
  • Misidentification of poisonous mushrooms resembling psilocybin could lead to unintentional, potentially fatal poisoning
Peyote
  • Increased body temperature and heart rate
  • Uncoordinated movements (ataxia)
  • Profound sweating
  • Flushing
DMT
  • Increased heart rate
  • Agitation
  • Hallucinations frequently involving radically altered environments as well as body and spatial distortions
Ayahuasca
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Severe vomiting (induced by the tea)
  • Profoundly altered state of awareness and perceptions of otherworldly imagery

Short-Term General Effects of Hallucinogens

Sensory Effects
  • Hallucinations, including seeing, hearing, touching, or smelling things in a distorted way or perceiving things that do not exist
  • Intensified feelings and sensory experiences (brighter colors, sharper sounds)
  • Mixed senses (“seeing” sounds or “hearing” colors)
  • Changes in sense or perception of time (time goes by slowly)
Physical Effects
  • Increased energy and heart rate
  • Nausea

What Are the Long-Term Effects of Hallucinogens?

LSD users quickly develop a high degree of tolerance to the drug’s effects, such that repeated use requires increasingly larger doses to produce similar effects. Use of hallucinogenic drugs also produces tolerance to other drugs in this class, including psilocybin and peyote. Use of classic hallucinogens does not, however, produce tolerance to drugs that do not act directly on the same brain cell receptors. In other words, there is no cross-tolerance to drugs that act on other neurotransmitter systems, such as marijuana, amphetamines, or PCP, among others. Furthermore, tolerance for hallucinogenic drugs is short-lived—it is lost if the user stops taking the drugs for several days—and physical withdrawal symptoms are not typically experienced when chronic use is stopped.
The long-term residual psychological and cognitive effects of peyote remain poorly understood. Although one study found no evidence of psychological or cognitive deficits among Native Americans who use peyote regularly in a religious setting, those findings may not generalize to those who repeatedly abuse the drug for recreational purposes (Halpern, 2005). Peyote users may also experience hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD)—also often referred to as flashbacks. The active ingredient mescaline has also been associated, in at least one report, to fetal abnormalities (Gilmore, 2001).
Long-term effects of DMT use and abuse and addiction liability are currently unknown. Unlike most other hallucinogens, DMT does not appear to induce tolerance (Winstock, 2013).
As with some other hallucinogens, there is little information to suggest that ayahuasca use creates lasting physiological or neurological deficits, especially among those using the brew for religious activities.
Overall, two long-term effects—persistent psychosis and HPPD—have been associated with use of classic hallucinogens (see text box below). Although occurrence of either is rare, it is also unpredictable and may happen more often than previously thought, and sometimes both conditions occur together. While the exact causes are not known, both conditions are more often seen in individuals with a history of psychological problems but can happen to anyone, even after a single exposure. There is no established treatment for HPPD, in which flashbacks may occur spontaneously and repeatedly although less intensely than their initial occurrence. Some antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs can be prescribed to help improve mood and treat psychoses, however. Psychotherapy may also help patients cope with fear or confusion associated with visual disturbances or other consequences of long-term LSD use. More research on the causes, incidence, and long-term effects of both disorders is being conducted.

 QUICK SUMMARY!
1
 Sleep deprivation is a general term to describe a state caused by inadequate quantity or quality of sleep, including voluntary or involuntary sleeplessness and circadian rhythm sleep disorders.
2
Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water, but many of us don’t get enough sleep. Insufficient sleep, inadequate quality of sleep or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle (such as those that occur with shift work or travelling to a different time zone) have consequences for how we function in the daytime, causing sleepiness and fatigue.
3
A sleepy fatigued person is accident prone, judgement impaired and more likely to make mistakes and bad decisions. Staying awake for 24 hours leads to a reduced hand-to-eye coordination that is similar to having a blood alcohol content of 0.1. This is why sleep deprivation contributes to road accidents and work injuries.
4
Lack of sleep can also affect a child’s school performance and could be linked to increased risk of emotional problems such as depression.

 

Symptoms of sleep deprivation in adults


Symptoms of sleep deprivation in adults include:
  • Constant yawning
  • The tendency to doze off when not active for a while; for example, when watching television
  • Grogginess when waking in the morning
  • Sleepy grogginess experienced all day long (sleep inertia)
  • Poor concentration and mood changes (more irritable).

Symptoms of sleep deprivation in children


Sleep deprivation affects children in different ways to adults. Sleepy children tend to ‘speed up’ rather than slow down. Symptoms include:
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Temper tantrums
  • The tendency to emotionally ‘explode’ at the slightest provocation
  • Over-activity and hyperactive behaviour
  • Daytime naps
  • Grogginess when they wake up in the morning
  • Reluctance to get out of bed in the morning.

Causes of sleep deprivation


Common causes of sleep deprivation include:
  • Personal choice – some people don’t realise that the body needs adequate sleep. Instead of regularly going to bed at a reasonable hour, they prefer to stay up late to socialise, watch television or read a good book.
  • Illness – illnesses such as colds and tonsillitis can cause snoring, gagging and frequent waking, and have a direct effect on sleep by fragmenting it.
  • Work – people who do shift work disrupt their sleep-wake cycles on a regular basis. Frequent travellers (for example, airline crew) also tend to have erratic sleeping patterns.
  • Sleep disorder – problems such as sleep apnoea, snoring and periodic limb movement disorder can disturb the person’s sleep many times during the night.
  • Medications – some drugs used to treat disorders such as epilepsy or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can cause insomnia.
  • The sleeping environment – sleep may be disrupted for a range of environmental reasons; for example, because the bedroom is too hot or cold or because of noisy neighbours or a snoring bed partner.
  • Poor sleep hygiene – some people’s habits are disruptive; for example, drinking coffee or smoking cigarettes close to bedtime stimulates the nervous system and makes sleep less likely. Another common problem is lying in bed and worrying, rather than relaxing.
  • Babies, older babies and toddlers – parents almost always experience sleep deprivation because their young children wake frequently in the night for feeding or comfort.

Lack of sleep impairs performance


Let’s say that a person who needs eight hours of sleep per night only gets six. This two-hour sleep loss can have a major impact including:
  • Reduced alertness
  • Shortened attention span
  • Slower than normal reaction time
  • Poorer judgement
  • Reduced awareness of the environment and situation
  • Reduced decision-making skills
  • Poorer memory
  • Reduced concentration
  • Increased likelihood of mentally ‘stalling’ or fixating on one thought
  • Increased likelihood of moodiness and bad temper
  • Reduced work efficiency
  • Loss of motivation
  • Errors of omission – making a mistake by forgetting to do something
  • Errors of commission – making a mistake by doing something, but choosing the wrong option
  • Microsleep – brief periods of involuntary sleeping that range from a few seconds to a few minutes in duration.

Effects of sleep loss on children


Selected statistics from research studies into sleep loss and its effects on children and teenagers include:
  • Sleep loss causes a range of schooling problems, including naughtiness and poor concentration.
  • Chronically sleep-deprived teenagers are more likely to have problems with impulse control, which leads to risk-taking behaviours.
  • Sleep problems in teenagers are associated with increased risk of disorders such as depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • High school students who regularly score C, D or F in school tests and assignments get, on average, half an hour less sleep per night than high school students who regularly get A and B grades.
  • Later start times at school result in reduced daytime sleepiness, higher grades and reduced negative feelings.

How much sleep is enough?


Sleep requirements differ from one person to the next depending on age, physical activity levels, general health and other individual factors. In general:
  • Primary school children – need about nine to 10 hours. Studies show that increasing your child’s sleep by as little as half an hour can dramatically improve school performance.
  • Teenagers – need about nine to 10 hours too. Teenagers have an increased sleep requirement at the time when social engagements and peer pressure cause a reduction in sleep time. Lifestyle factors such as early school start times deprive them of the required sleep-in. There is evidence that around the time of becoming a teenager, there is a shift in the sleep-wake cycle to being sleepy later in the evening with a preference for waking later.
  • Adults – need about eight hours, depending on individual factors. We tend to need less sleep as we age, but be guided by your own state of alertness – if you feel tired during the day, aim to get more sleep.

Sleep suggestions


Suggestions on how to get more sleep include:
  • Purposefully go to bed earlier each night.
  • Don’t smoke or drink alcoholic or caffeinated beverages in the hours before bedtime.
  • Improve your sleeping environment in any way you can – for example, keep it dark and sound-proof, turn off lights and wear earplugs if you have noisy neighbours.
  • Don’t have any distractions in the bedroom such as TV or a computer.
  • Use relaxation techniques to help you fall asleep quickly.
  • Seek professional assistance for sleep disorders such as snoring.
  • Browse through the Better Health Channel fact sheets on sleep to find ways to improve sleeping habits for you and your baby or child.

Where to get help

  • Your doctor
  • Sleep disorder clinic

Things to remember

  • Not enough sleep or disruptions to the sleep-wake cycle (such as those that may occur with shift work or travelling to a different time zone) cause the physiological state known as fatigue.
  • Staying awake for 24 hours leads to a reduced hand-to-eye coordination that is similar to having a blood alcohol content of 0.1.
  • Sleep deprivation affects children in different ways to adults – sleepy children tend to ‘rev up’ rather than slow down.

A lot is not being done when it comes to women caring for their eye health. 
In-fact it seems generally the eye is usually the most ignored part of the body when we think of our health and taking care of ourself, in this post we'd look into the global stats of % (percentage) of women who fall into this category of people who are having eye problem but are paying less concern to it.


In today's world, women are not only the primary caregivers, often they are ultimately the decision makers for their partners, spouses, children and even their aging parents. Among these important health care choices is eye health. However, are women as primary caregivers doing enough to protect their own eye health? Recent statistics show that globally, two-thirds of blind and visually impaired people are women.


In a recent  Harris poll conducted on behalf of Prevent Blindness discovered that only 9 percent of women surveyed were aware that they were at a much greater risk of permanent vision loss than men. An alarming 86 percent of women surveyed believed they were at equal risk to men and 5 percent believed men were at greater risk of permanent vision loss.2
Given these startling statistics, educating women on their eye care wellness and vision care is key to help reduce the risk of degenerative conditions, engage early treatment options and ultimately improve quality of life.
It's important that women educate themselves on the best way to protect and enhance their eye and vision health. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends alike will benefit if they prioritize proper eye care and preserve their sight.

Taking Care of Yourself and Those You Love

Things to remember:
  • Visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive exam
  • Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables
  • Take nutritional supplements, particularly those with lutein, omega-3 and zeaxanthin
  • Be mindful of potential vision changes during pregnancy
  • Avoid cigarette smoking
  • Wear sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat outside to protect against harmful UV rays
  • Be aware of your family history of eye disease
  • Practice safe cosmetic and beauty applications
  • Use, clean and store contact lenses properly as instructed by your eye care professional
  • Rest your eyes using the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds

Diabetes has for hundreds of years been a global health issue
A lot of people today are suffering from the global health problem and it was first thought to be a form of health condition that only attacks people who're advanced in age, but recent studies have even shown higher discovery of this problem even in younger adults.
some even blame it all on sugar, but it's not totally true that sugar is the main cause or the gear behind the out-break of this health problem in younger adults due to maybe they tend to take more sugary contents than older people, well! That's a topic entirely for another day, we'd look in-dept into why they blame it on sugar, but today lets look at some quick remedies for this health issue threatening many people in the global world today.
