अगर आप हरे-भरे इलाकों में रहते हैं तो आपको हृदय का रोग विकसित होने की संभावनाएं कम होती हैं। एक नए अध्ययन में यह बात सामने आई है। ईएससी कांग्रेस 2021 में प्रस्तुत किए गए निष्कर्षों से संकेत मिलता है कि पूरे अध्ययन के दौरान उच्च हरे भरे वाले ब्लॉकों के निवासियों में कम हरे भरे वाले ब्लॉकों की तुलना में किसी भी नई कार्डियोवैस्कुलर स्थितियों को विकसित करने की 16 प्रतिशत कम संभावनाएं थीं।
यूनिवर्सिटी ऑफ मियामी, अमेरिका के विलियम ऐटकेन ने कहा, "जब कोई क्षेत्र उच्च हरापन बनाए रखता है और जब हरापन बढ़ता है, तो समय के साथ हरेपन के उच्च स्तर हृदय की स्थिति और स्ट्रोक की कम दरों से जुड़े होते हैं।"
एटकेन ने कहा, "यह उल्लेखनीय था कि ये संबंध केवल पांच वर्षों में दिखाई दिए, पॉजिटिव पर्यावरणीय प्रभाव के लिए अपेक्षाकृत कम समय में।"
अध्ययन के लिए, टीम में 65 वर्ष और उससे अधिक आयु के 2,43,558 यूएस मेडिकेयर लाभार्थी शामिल थे जो 2011 से 2016 तक मियामी के एक ही क्षेत्र में रहते थे।
पांच साल के अध्ययन के दौरान दिल का दौरा, आलिंद फिब्रिलेशन, दिल की विफलता, इस्केमिक हृदय रोग, उच्च रक्तचाप और स्ट्रोक / क्षणिक इस्केमिक हमले सहित नई हृदय स्थितियों की घटनाओं को प्राप्त करने के लिए मेडिकेयर रिकॉर्ड का उपयोग किया गया था।
पृथ्वी की सतह से परावर्तित दृश्य और निकट-अवरक्त (अदृश्य) सूर्य के प्रकाश की मात्रा का आकलन करने के लिए उपग्रह छवियों का उपयोग किया गया था। पौधों से क्लोरोफिल आमतौर पर ²श्य प्रकाश को अवशोषित करता है और निकट-अवरक्त प्रकाश को दर्शाता है, इसलिए दोनों को मापने से वनस्पति की मात्रा का संकेत मिलता है।
शहर के ब्लॉकों की हरियाली को तब निम्न, मध्यम या उच्च के रूप में वर्गीकृत किया गया था।
प्रतिभागियों को इस आधार पर वर्गीकृत किया गया था कि वे 2011 में निम्न, मध्यम या उच्च हरियाली वाले ब्लॉकों में रहते थे। 2016 में उन्हीं निवासियों और उनके ब्लॉक की हरियाली के लिए प्रक्रिया को दोहराया गया था।
टीम ने ब्लॉक-स्तरीय हरेपन के आधार पर किसी भी नए हृदय रोग के विकास की बाधाओं और नई हृदय स्थितियों की संख्या का विश्लेषण किया।
फॉलो-अप के दौरान कार्डियोवैस्कुलर स्थिति विकसित करने वाले प्रतिभागियों में, उच्च हरियाली वाले क्षेत्रों में कम हरेपन वाले ब्लॉकों की तुलना में 4 प्रतिशत कम नई बीमारियां विकसित हुईं। (एजेंसी)

Who doesn't love dewy skin during monsoon with minimal fuss? The season of monsoon brings its own set of challenges that demand a different kind of skincare routine. The humidity present in the air during this time definitely adversely impacts the texture of our skin.
Like we change our clothes seasonally, it is important to keep adapting our skincare routine to the changing season. For monsoons, it is essential to treat our skin with products that nourish without leaving behind a layer of grease, that moisturises and softens the skin. The rains cause dryness, itchiness, dull skin that leads to acne and other skin allergies. The need for germ protection also goes up in monsoons with the extra sweating due to increased humidity. Therefore, the best ritual to include in your bathing routine is using ingredients like Neem Oil and Aloe Vera regularly.
Let's look at their Benefits
Neem and Aloe Vera have active natural constituents with benefits like nourishment, soothing, and protection of skin from pollutants and germs. These ingredients are enriched with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are suitable for all skin types as they deeply cleanse the skin, and maintain the balance in oil production. They are rich in vitamins A, C, and E, which are antioxidants that neutralize the free radicals/waste released by our cells and boost overall skin health.
A combination of the two can help with healing infinite skin issues that concern us during the monsoon season:
Clears Excess Oil Accumulation and Breakouts
Neem and Aloe Vera helps in the deep cleansing of the skin. This further helps in removing excess oil that gets accumulated and causes severe acne, and redness on the skin. The magical combination with its antibacterial properties helps prevent surface build-up or oil buildup on the skin to improve overall texture. Regular use of both ingredients together leaves the skin looking radiant and rejuvenated.

A Boost of Natural Hydration
When the weather is humid, greasiness can be the biggest bane. Aloe Vera has water-dense properties. It performs the role of a natural hydrator and prevents the skin from dehydration without packing in the greasy element that you might find in normal creams and moisturizers. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, it helps in minimizing clogged pores. If used daily, aloe vera provides moisturization and freshens up the skin.
Prevents Skin Infection
Neem is one of the best antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral agents on planet earth. It prevents the skin from various skin infections especially if you get wet in the rain, wade through water-logged streets, or wear sweaty clothes for an extended period of time. If used in a combination with aloe vera in an everyday product like a body wash, one can stay protected from infections, while keeping skin healthy, smooth, and supple.
Acts as an Exfoliating and Anti-Pollution Agent
The humidity in the weather during this season leads to the expansion of pores which increases blackhead and whitehead breakouts. Excessive sweating can also create germ load on our skin, especially under our arms, and at the back of our knees which need deep cleansing. A Neem and Aloe Vera body wash can help rid your skin of these unwelcome guests. Their exfoliating properties help unclog pores, and clean the skin from the inside out without drying or hurting the skin in any manner. This also goes a long way in neutralizing the ill effects of pollutants, they cleanse daily toxins and environmental aggressors from urban environments and restore your skin's look and feel.
