An Immune India

The greatest wealth is Health
                                     - Virgil

       As per the saying, the health plays a major role in a person's life. A sound mind and a healthy body is essential for a healthy life.Today's children are the backbone of the developing India.The future of the nation depends on today's young children. It's our duty to bring up our children as strong and healthier kids.

We should  remember and follow certain things in our mind for a stronger India.

1. Breast Feeding :

                    Years before the pregnancy, the cells of the body produce antibodies against the intestinal infections.These antibodies defend us against infections such as cholera and rota virus. But once, a women starts breastfeeding, these antibody producing cells move to mammary glands. So, when the baby starts having breast milk, the antibodies goes straight to the baby's intestine and helps in developing  the immune system of the new born babies.

            The breasts produce colostrum beginning during pregnancy and continuing through the early days of breastfeeding. This special milk is yellow to orange in color and thick and sticky. It is low in fat, and high in carbohydrates, protein, and antibodies to help keep the baby healthy. Colostrum is extremely easy to digest, and is therefore the perfect first food for the baby. It is low in volume, but high in concentrated nutrition for the newborn. 

2. Nutritious Foods :

                             Traditional and nutritious cereals like jowar, millets, bajra should be included in  our daily diet. These are high in nutritional value. These must be consumed a lot in the place of the junk and oily foods. The fast food culture which is a  fast approaching and a threatening demon to our healthier lives should be eradicated from our society. The intake of fresh vegetables and fruits help in leading a healthier life.

3. Exercise and Physical Work:

                          The exercise and physical work help in keeping our body fit and healthy. Now a days, the advancement in science and technology have made our lives very easier. There is a lack of physical work among the people. There should be some physical work in our daily life.
                        The use of  bicycle  which burns calories instead of automobiles which consume  lot of petrol and diesel, which emits lot of carbon di oxide and carbon monoxide in the air, which is the major cause of several lung and respiratory disorders. Moreover, riding the bicycle is a great exercise to our body, which helps us to keep away from diabetes and obesity.

4. Awareness about Cleanliness:

                          The awareness about the cleanliness should be developed among people. The ill effects of littering in public places, their effects on the healthy life should be known to the people. Smoking in public places should be eradicated. Severe punishments and charges should be given to people whole exploit the environment.

5. Outdoor Playing:

                Encourage kids to play outdoors rather than sitting in front of computers and play games for all day.  Moreover, outdoor playing develops confidence in the children. It helps in developing physical abilities, which makes themselves feel positive about themselves.

These are the few simple things that can be followed in our lives to develop a more immune and healthier India.
