Signifying gender clash, members of both sexes, especially when in the comfort of unisex gatherings, have expressed deficiencies in the opposite sex. You know what men are like and you know what women are like are the usual comments. In todays real competitive world, the question asked above has become more important.

History, unfortunately, has not been kind to women. They were suppressed, almost in every culture- at least, over the last 2000-3000 yrs. They were said to be less intelligent, passive, emotional and much more. Not only men, even women thought that those assertions were gospel truths. They hardly ever protested. It became a way of life. As a concept, it fitted very well in the making of a stable society, where men worked outside and women worked at home.

As if they were locked at home, women were neither accessible for study nor were known properly. Not only the lay, even poets, who gave direction to the society, openly said that women were a mystery. Even women did not know about themselves. Far from showing power, ignorance made them suffer so much. Looking back, even men feel sorry for the suffering women had to go through then.

Parallel to other changes, there have been radical changes in relation to women in the last century. However, with men, even many women, resolutely guarding the status quo, getting education, as a start, was a big struggle for women. But then, once they gained education, their horizon of thought broadened. Women’s empowerment thus began. In addition, although Right of Man- a produce of French revolution, did little for women, it certainly made them- especially the feminists, aware of their rights. Feminists struggled hard for womens rights.

Following a long struggle, women are now able to express themselves in a coherent way and scientists are able to study them better. Books and journals are full of research papers dealing with them. Now we know that women are better off biologically. They survive birth trauma better, live longer and can withstand stress more. In addition, while their beauty helps them in beauty mad world, enhancing beauty, use of cosmetics, ornaments and colourful dresses give them an edge. Following sexual revolution, they have been able to use their sex power, as never before. In a competitive world, these and other factors matter a lot.

Unlike many centuries available to men, availing just a single century, they have shown success in so many fields. Their lack of success in politics is simply due to selection procedure followed by parties. Although seen to be empowerment of women, it is their exceptional power, which is clearly seen in the success statistics. The question is, will this success go on? Almost as an answer, like a mans world of today, the book, Womens Power: Its Past, Its present, Its Future: Femocracy, makes a case for womans world in the future.

The medical industry needs to do a better job of protecting the hearts of American women. One of the many health challenges women have had to deal with was the scam of Hormone Replacement Therapy. Marketed by pharmaceutical companies as a cure-all for aging, HRT also claimed to protect against heart disease. In 2002 it was revealed that not only was this claim false, but in fact HRT increased risk of heart disease. Women were tricked into using a product that caused the very thing it claimed to prevent.

Another blow to women’s heart health came when researchers at University of California, San Francisco discovered that many heart-related medical devices have not been adequately tested on women. Although women constitute just over 50% of the population, many devices are tested overwhelmingly on men before getting FDA approval.

After looking through 123 studies for 78 different high-risk medical devices that were approved by the FDA, researchers found significant gender bias. The devices looked at were all for cardiovascular health, including heart valves, implanted defibrillators, pacemakers and stents. Since heart disease is the number one cause of death among women in the US, it is important that these devices perform safely and effectively on women as well as men.

28% of the studies analyzed made no mention of gender. Men constituted 67% of the participants in the other studies. Due to differences in bleeding tendencies and size, men and women may have different reactions or side effects with these devices. “We do not know if a lot of medical devices currently on the market are as safe and effective in women as they are in men,” researcher Dr. Rita Redberg said.

The results from their analysis should be surprising given that in 1994, the FDA released a mandate that manufacturers issue a gender-bias statement with each new product application, guaranteeing that the devices were tested in appropriate proportions of men and women. However, under half of the studies reviewed included that required statement. Of those that did, 26% actually showed sex-linked differences in safety and effectiveness.

Since the 1980s, women’s health groups have been advocating for closer analysis of medication and medical devices and their effects on women. Men have been given preference as test subjects because they lack some of the hormonal variables that make women more “challenging.” This is an unacceptable excuse for sexist practices that endanger women. They deserve the same assurance that approved medical devices and equipment will be safe and effective when used on them, and the FDA needs to crack down and make this happen.

The number one reason why Asian women are so thin is because of social demands placed on them by the media and the fashion industry. Youth and beauty is defined by having an underdeveloped body with seemingly childlike features. There are some genetics involved, too. Biology tells us that evidence of the earliest human-beings exhibited similar traits associated with neoteny. The word itself is seldom used to denote underdevelopment, or individuals who retain juvenile features clear into their adulthood. In modern vernacular we used derogatory expressions like pancake chest, flat bottom, flat as a board, skin and bones, and other more colorful and offensive expressions to denote a person who is underdeveloped and skinny.

Having no breast, no buttocks, and something not related called “Yaeba,” a Japanese word that means snaggletooth in English, is utterly destroying the natural beauty of Japanese women. Being thin and underfed is self-depriving and therefore works against the natural development of the body. Eating three square meals a day and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Apparel shops market the idea of cute and ‘forever 21’ to appeal to young women in their teens and twenties. The idea that by dressing like you are 21 years old you can be 21 years old again has been a marketing strategy for decades. It’s as if the media Barons of Tokyo and Shibuya are working right alongside the fashion industry to purposely promote young thin women as apposed to healthy young women. Having too much physical maturity is seen as un-Japanese. Their seems to be some sense of impurity associated with being and looking too mature.

Japanese women are inundated with images of thin women in fashion magazines, movies, and films. Often times these thin women are depicted as living the good life and appear to be happy and satisfied because of all the friends and lovers they appear to have. Young Japanese women set abnormally high expectations for themselves by experimenting with unhealthy diet fads that wind up doing more harm than good. When they go shopping they want to be able to fit into clothes that look cute, which are often times a 24-26 cm waist sizes. That is very small.

Manga is another reason why too. Often times caricatures are drawn with unnaturally small waste sizes. It doesn’t end there, Japanese men prefer dating thinner women, often times with juvenile features. Larger women feel isolated and under appreciated for their own natural beauty. This rejection of what’s natural has been eating away at society in Japan for decades, and has been one of the chief contributing factors in depression and suicide for many young women.

The best way to start a medication is to understand its misconceptions first. Holistic lifestyles are not so common that everyone is aware of it; hence this too has its share of misconceptions clearly aided by rumors. Comparing articles online or talking to a holistic lifestyle practitioner is a good way to start.

Some basic misconceptions about holistic lifestyle which utilizes natural health supplements, is as follows.

Statement: Holistic lifestyle is for old or people fighting with life threatening diseases.

Truth: No doubt holistic lifestyle helps people suffering from many illnesses, but it is not like young people cannot try such an existence. In today’s hard paced lifestyle, our solutions are creating many problems to one and all. A scientist documented the above fact as follows. “We all are self created time bombs.” Holistic lifestyle is accepted to attain a healthy body and mind.

Statement: Holistic lifestyle makes you a good person.

Truth: Like you cannot generalize emotions, same way you cannot judge if a person is good or bad by yourself. Holistic lifestyle takes you towards nature so in a way it makes you more aware of things. Becoming a certain type of person is an individual’s choice though. Also, as holistic lifestyle influences your mind and spirit, your general awareness about values of life increases and you may become a better person.

Statement: All essential oils have a nice glowing smell.

Truth: Some essential oils may create an aroma but not all. In addition, many fake essential oil manufacturers add such perfumed extracts to woo buyers.

Statement: Do not buy essential oils in aluminum bottles.

Truth: If aluminum bottles are lined from inside, you can use essential oils stored in such bottles.

Statement: Holistic healing can cure aids/cancer/diabetes and other incurable diseases

Truth: Such statement is like overrating something. Holistic healing is a process which works on the imbalances of your body, but never ever has any holistic lifestyle practitioner or coach claimed curing aids or diabetes. Holistic lifestyle is a way of life and not a medicinal solution for a certain problem.

There are many other misconceptions about living a holistic lifestyle or usage of aromatherapy essential oils which have been started by small time manufacturers to boost their sales. The worst being people still fall prey to such bogus claims.

When it comes to personal debt, financial experts from around the world agree on one thing: it is a symptom of a much bigger problem with the individual. Debt can build up slowly over the years until it reaches a point where you are paying off so much debt that your personal income doesnt cover what you have to pay each month and worse, you might have to start taking on more debt to fill the gap between income and expenditure.

Its very easy to get in to debt, with the consumer society we live in we have been led to believe that we can have it all right now and pay for it in manageable bitesize chunks each month. The financial crisis and ongoing recession has proved that the buy now, pay later culture fostered by the credit and retail companies was an unsustainable dream and now many people have great TVs, awesome cars, went on fantastic holidays but have huge debt mountains that have to be dealt with.

Debt consolidation is a great tool for many families to pull themselves out of the miserable debt cycle. The lower rate of interest gives breathing space each month so you can use your income for essential living costs rather than paying off interest on the couches you bought a few years back, it will reduce your stress levels as you wont get new bills every day and you can make that one easy payment each month right after you get paid.

Once youve consolidated your debt though you need to rethink your lifestyle and attitude towards credit. If you havent already, now might be the right time to cut up those credit cards particularly the store cards that have crazy interest rates. A new attitude needs to be adopted of waiting to have the money to buy something rather than having everything now and repaying it later. The consumerist lifestyle also needs to be rethought; do you really need to take a foreign holiday each year? Can the gas guzzling SUV be traded in for something more economical? Is there a cheaper place to buy groceries and apparels?

The danger with debt consolidation is that you dont change your lifestyle and manage your income and expenditure to ensure you dont spend more than you have each month. Debt consolidation is your second chance to get your finances in order there isnt a third chance because if you fail to change your ways after consolidating your debt and continue buying gadgets and going out to restaurants and then paying for it all on credit then you risk losing your home, family and lifestyle.

Its a pretty scary thought so once youve consolidated your debt, change your ways, change your attitudes to money and think of the relief youll have in 5 years when you are finally debt free.
