In the early period of the development of Ayurveda, Ashwini Kumars had a great reputation as miraculous wonderful Vaidyas. Chyawan was the descendant of Rishi Maharishi Bhrigu (who was a great personality scholar and who made birth charts of millions of people which is still authentic today). When Chyawan Rishi became very old, he prayed to Ashwini Kumars for his youth recovery. Ashwini Kumars prepared a divine medicine for Sage Chyawan, due to which Rishi Chyawan again attained the youth stage. This divine medicine is called Chyawanprash after the name of Chyawan Rishi.
For this, the Ashwini Kumars discovered eight medicinal plants of Ashtavarga and performed the miracle of making Chyawan Rishi's grumpy, old body young again.

New York: Because of their small and relatively collapsible airways, young children with Omicron are more vulnerable to upper airway infection such as croup, which if severe can lead to cardiac arrest, finds a study.
Croup is a type of respiratory illness, known medically as laryngotracheitis, in babies and young children. It is characterised by barking cough, and noisy breathing. In severe cases, it can dangerously constrict breathing.
A team of researchers from Universities of Colorado and Northwestern in the US, examined 18,849 children hospitalised with SARS-CoV-2.
Their results published in the JAMA Pediatrics showed that upper airways infection increased during the Omicron surge. More than one-fifth of children hospitalised with SARS-CoV-2 and upper airways infection in the US developed severe disease.
About 384 had upper airway infection. Severe disease, defined as requiring invasive ventilation, vasopressors, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or death, occurred in 81 children.
The study also found that children with upper airways infection during the Omicron period were more likely to be younger and less likely to receive dexamethasone or develop severe disease compared with those in the pre-Omicron period.
"Children with severe upper airway infection are at risk of cardiac arrest from rapid-onset upper airway obstruction. They may require therapies typically provided in intensive care units, including frequent administration of nebulized racemic epinephrine, helium-oxygen mixtures, and intubation," said the researchers including Blake Martin, from Department of Pediatrics at University of Colorado's School of Medicine.
"While the rate of SARS-CoV-2 paediatric upper airway infection is not overwhelmingly high, understanding this new clinical phenotype and the potential for acute upper airway obstruction may help guide therapeutic decision-making," they added.
After being detected from African countries in November last year, Omicron soon gained presence worldwide and became the dominant strain, replacing Delta. It became dominant in the US the week ending December 25.
"Omicron is known to cause lower severity disease than the Delta (B.1.617.2) variant. This may be because Omicron replicates less efficiently in lung parenchyma and more efficiently in the conducting airways," the researchers said.
The team explained that SARS-CoV-2 can cause severe paediatric disease, including acute Covid-19 and multisystem inflammatory syndrome. Published reports associating SARS-CoV-2 with upper airway infection, such as laryngotracheobronchitis (croup), have been limited to small case series.
Although non coronaviruses, including parainfluenza and respiratory syncytial virus, most frequently cause upper airway infection, coronaviruses (eg, type NL63) are also commonly implicated.

न्यूयॉर्क: ओमिक्रॉन वेरिएंट से संक्रमित 5 वर्ष से कम उम्र के बच्चों में डेल्टा वेरिएंट से संक्रमित लोगों की तुलना में गंभीर स्वास्थ्य परिणामों का जोखिम कम होता है। एक नए शोध में यह बात सामने आई है। पत्रिका 'जामा पीडियाट्रिक्स' में प्रकाशित शोध निष्कर्ष से यह भी पता चला है कि ओमिक्रॉन वेरिएंट डेल्टा की तुलना में 6 से 8 गुना अधिक संक्रामक है।
केस वेस्टर्न रिजर्व यूनिवर्सिटी स्कूल ऑफ मेडिसिन, क्लीवलैंड, ओहियो के शोधकर्ता रोंग जू ने कहा, "ओमिक्रॉन डेल्टा की तुलना में कम गंभीर है, हालांकि नैदानिक परिणामों में गंभीरता की सीमा में कमी केवल 16 से 85 प्रतिशत है।"
जू ने कहा, "इसके अलावा, चूंकि इतने सारे असंक्रमित बच्चे संक्रमित थे, मस्तिष्क, हृदय, प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली और बच्चों के अन्य अंगों पर कोविड-19 संक्रमण के दीर्घकालिक प्रभाव अज्ञात और चिंताजनक बने हुए हैं।"
शोध टीम ने पाया कि डेल्टा से संक्रमित 3.3 प्रतिशत की तुलना में ओमिक्रॉन से संक्रमित लगभग 1.8 प्रतिशत बच्चे अस्पताल में भर्ती थे।
टीम ने अध्ययन के लिए अमेरिका में 651,640 से अधिक बच्चों के इलेक्ट्रॉनिक स्वास्थ्य रिकॉर्ड का विश्लेषण किया, जिनका 9/2021 और 1/2022 के बीच स्वास्थ्य संगठनों के साथ चिकित्सा जांच हुई थी, जिसमें दिसंबर के अंत और जनवरी के अंत में ओमिक्रॉन से 22,772 से अधिक बच्चे संक्रमित थे, जबकि डेल्टा से 66,000 से अधिक बच्चे संक्रमित हुए थे।
शोध टीम ने अमेरिका में ओमिक्रॉन का पता लगाने से ठीक पहले डेल्टा से संक्रमित 10,000 से अधिक बच्चों के रिकॉर्ड की तुलना की थी।
5 वर्ष से कम उम्र के बच्चे अभी तक कोविड-19 टीकों के लिए पात्र नहीं हैं। उनमें पिछले सार्स-कोव-2 संक्रमणों की दर कम है। संक्रमण उनके शरीर में पहले से मौजूद प्रतिरक्षा तत्वों को भी सीमित कर देता है।
टीम ने सार्स-कोव-2 संक्रमण के बाद 14 दिनों की अवधि के दौरान बाल रोगियों के स्वास्थ्य परिणामों की जांच की। उन्होंने जिन कारकों की समीक्षा की, वे थे : आपातकालीन कक्ष का दौरा, अस्पताल में भर्ती, आईसीयू में प्रवेश और यांत्रिक वेंटिलेशन का उपयोग।
आगे जनसांख्यिकीय डेटा विश्लेषण में पाया गया कि ओमिक्रॉन से संक्रमित बच्चे औसतन छोटे थे - 1.5 वर्ष की आयु बनाम 1.7 वर्ष और उनमें दूसरे रोग कम थे।

London: Genetic variants that damage the genome are associated with reduced reproductive success and an increased likelihood of not having children, suggests research.
According to researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute in the UK, one mechanism of natural selection that is removing damaging genetic variation from the population is increased childlessness.
It is likely linked to genetic influences on cognitive and behavioural traits, which may mean that men and women with these genetic variants are less likely to form reproductive partnerships.
However, the study, published in the journal Nature, also showed that this genetic link may play a very minor role in the overall likelihood of being childless. It accounts for less than one per cent when compared to more influential factors such as sociodemographic factors and choice.
In the study, the team included more than 340,000 participants, and investigated whether damaging genetic variants were associated with lower reproductive success by calculating for each person, how much damaging genetic variation they carry across their entire genome, known as their 'genetic burden'.
They tested whether genetic burden was associated with the number of children that the participants had, and found it was associated with men with the highest genetic burden having an average 0.26 fewer children - but this was not seen in women.
The team also found that increasing genetic burden was associated with a higher chance of being childless in both men and women, but much more so in men.
"It's important to emphasise that we have not found a 'gene for childlessness', as that implies a strong, causal effect of genetic variation on whether or not someone will have children. Instead we have shown that people with damaged genomes, particularly men, are slightly more likely to be childless," said Eugene Gardner at the MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge.
"This is probably due to the effect of damaging genetic variants on cognitive and behavioural traits, which make these men less likely to find a partner to have children with," said Gardner, who was at the Wellcome Sanger Institute while doing the research.
While the genetic burden is not associated with infertility, both men and women with a higher genetic burden were more likely to have mental health disorders. (agency)

Breakfast is the most crucial meal of the day, and starting your day without one is like trying to fly a kite without wind. A nutritious breakfast is essential for children not just to give them a powerful start to the day, but also to refuel their bodies after sleep, as their brains and bodies are still developing.
The most difficult task for parents is to ensure that their children have a nutritious breakfast. About 20-30 per cent of youngsters miss meals, therefore a breakfast for them should be quick, easy, filling, and, most importantly, delicious.
Aditya Bagri, Director at Bagrry's shares delicious and healthy breakfast options for your kids:
Wheat Bran Pancakes: Pancakes and waffles are the breakfast of champions (when it comes to fixing our tastebuds), but it doesn't need to be all unhealthy. Wheat bran, along with atta and oats, is a great substitute for maida.
Just change the grain and add a lot more fibre and protein to your kid's breakfast. You can sweeten the batter with honey, jaggery, and bananas instead of sugar as well, along with some cocoa powder.
Quinoa Upma: Like a veggie breakfast -why not add quinoa instead of suji to your kids' Upma? It packs a lot more protein and fibre along with Omega 3 fatty acids.
Peanut Butter & Wholegrain Toast: A easy peasy peanut butter and toast combo are great for kids. Be sure to use actual wholegrain toast and unsweetened peanut butter, topped with some bananas for sweetness. You can even sprinkle some honey or chia seeds for more crunch.
Oats Idli: Idli's are an all-time breakfast favourite - why not change the base from white rice to Oats along with dal, adding more fibre, more protein and better energy.
Chocolate Muesli: Chocolate cereals are often laden with sugar. For older kids, muesli is a much better choice, laden with whole grains, nuts, berries and much less sugar. It gives energy for the whole day and needs no preparation time.
Banana Berry Smoothie: In case parents are short on time to cook breakfast, portable breakfasts for eating on the go act as an exceptional option. The simplest sugar-free, on-the-go meal for kids is a simple blend of bananas, berries, oats, and a dash of milk. Just blend it all together and it's got the fuel needed to start your day.
Overnight Oats: These are easy to prepare and way to healthy. Make them in Mason jars the night prior, and let your child customise this dish with their preferred toppings. You need to mix about 1/4 cup (26 grams) of rolled oats and 1/2 cup (120 ml) of your choice of milk in a small Mason jar.
Garnish with nuts, shredded coconut, chia seeds, and dried or fresh fruits. As an alternative to cooking them, leave the jar in the fridge and allow the oats to soften overnight.
Pumpkin-Quinoa Porridge: Quinoa is a quick-cooking, gluten-free grain, and this breakfast porridge packs a punch of vitamin A. Boil one part of quinoa with two parts of milk of any type and let it cook for 10 minutes on a medium-low flame. Stir in some pumpkin, cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg and allow it to simmer. Top it with brown sugar, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut before you serve it.
Berry Yoghurt Parfaits: Layer high-protein Greek yoghurt with fresh berries and a sprinkle of granola for an easy and on-the-go meal.

While there is no data or evidence to show that children are not susceptible to Covid infection, Omicron may not cause a significant impact in children, experts argued on Monday.
According to health officials in South Africa, the new super mutant variant of Covid-19 Omicron has been increasing hospitalisations among children under five years of age. Wassila Jassat, public health specialist at South Africa's National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), said: "A new trend in this wave is the increase in hospitalisation of children under five."
However, allaying fears of a similar scenario in India, microbiologist Dr Saumitra Das from the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics (NIBMG), on Monday said that Omicron may not infect children in other countries, particularly in India, the way it is affecting kids in South Africa, media reports said.
Dr H.K. Mahajan, anaesthesiologist, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre, Vasant Kunj, told IANS: "As far as the Omicron variant of Covid-19 is concerned, there is no such hazard to children. As a country, we are prepared to meet the Omicron virus because we have adequate paediatric wards and paediatricians, as well as the necessary infrastructure."
The NICD also said that children under the age of two account for about 10 per cent of total hospital admissions in Tshwane, the Omicron epicentre in South Africa, the report said.
But Das said that Indians will not be impacted in a similar way.
Mahajan agreed and said: "Our natural immunity will aid us in the fight against the Omicron virus."
However, Dr Vikram Gagneja, Consultant, Paediatrics and Intensivist, Pediatrics, HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka, New Delhi, told IANS, that Indian children can be at a similar risk.
"The South African situation can be repeated in India in view of lack of immunisation in this age group and also it is difficult to maintain Covid appropriate behaviour especially among infants and young children," he said.
While 50 per cent of the adult population in India has received two doses of the vaccine, and 84 per cent has received one dose, children are yet to be inoculated in the country.
On the other hand, several countries including the US, and Israel are well established in their vaccination programmes for children against Covid.
"India should follow suit and start paediatric Covid vaccination at the earliest, as more and more schools and educational institutions are opening up its doors for in-person classes," Dr Praveena, Assistant Professor, Paediatric ID specialist at Amrita Hospital, Kochi, told IANS.
Praveena stated that although "infections in children have been mild...no data or evidence that shows that children are not susceptible to infection".
The risk in children can be mitigated by following the public health measures already recommended by health authorities -- maintaining hand hygiene, masking and maintaining safe distance and keeping off crowded places.
Gagneja noted that the only way to protect kids is to start immunisation for them. It is also necessary to upgrade our healthcare system to cater to children, in case a situation arises.
"This is also the time when the young population is also vulnerable to other types of respiratory viruses or allergens so distinguishing them from Omicron via appropriate testing is helpful to avoid unnecessary panic situations," he said. (Agency)
