Free Radicals and Antioxidants ( a short explanation )

In our bodies, several processes can generate free radicals, including exposure to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, exposure to x-rays, and some reactions that occur during normal metabolic processes. Free radicals may have positive, negative, or zero charge. With some exceptions, the unpaired electrons cause radicals to be highly chemically reactive. Certain harmful substances, such as carbon tetrachloride (a solvent used in dry cleaning), also give rise to free radicals when they participate in metabolic reactions in the body. Among the many disorders, diseases, and conditions linked to oxygen-derived free radicals are cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer disease, emphysema, diabetes mellitus, cataracts, macular degeneration, rheumatoid arthritis, and deterioration associated with aging.

Antioxidants work to protect lipids from peroxidation by radicals. Antioxidants are effective because they are willing to give up their own electrons to free radicals. Consuming more antioxidants—substances that inactivate oxygen-derived free radicals—is thought to slow the pace of damage caused by free radicals. Important dietary antioxidants include selenium, zinc, beta-carotene, and vitamins C and E.

So start using antioxidant right now Smile

Hagar and Sarah


This is the story about Hagar the slavery and Sarah the freedom

Galatians 4 : 21 - 28
21 Tell me, you who want to be under the law, are you not aware of what the law says? 22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman. 23 His son by the slave woman was born according to the flesh, but his son by the free woman was born as the result of a divine promise.
24 These things are being taken figuratively: The women represent two covenants. One covenant is from Mount Sinai and bears children who are to be slaves: This is Hagar. 25 Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present city of Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children. 26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother. 27 For it is written:
   “Be glad, barren woman,
   you who never bore a child;
shout for joy and cry aloud,
   you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
   than of her who has a husband.”[a]
28 Now you, brothers and sisters, like Isaac, are children of promise. 29 At that time the son born according to the flesh persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now. 30 But what does Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.”[b] 31 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman. 


The Main Reason Why Christian Celebrate Christmas


Why Christian celebrate Christmas every year aren’t they bored ?
I wonder what is the main reason why Christian around the universe Celebrate Christmas. So I went to search from many people, expert, book, internet and I found this unbelievable reason that I can’t understand easily because how can a Father do such thing to his Son ! so here is the reason :

From John 3 : 16 - 21

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Jesus died at the Cross just for human for us, did you got it ? Father and Son love you soooooooooooo much, He love you and love you and always love you.

Left one question, do you love Him too ???

Hipertensi pada perempuan ( Women Hypertension )


imagesObat kontraseptif oral dapat meningkatkan tekanan darah dan resiko  meningkat dengan lamanya penggunaan. Perempuan yang menggunakan obat oral kontraseptif harus memeriksa tekanan darah secara teratur.


Timbulnya hipertensi adalah suatu alasan untuk mempertimbangkan penggunaan kontrasepsi lainnya. Sebaliknya, terapi pengganti hormon tidak menaikkan tekanan darah.

Wanita hamil dengan hipertensi harus dimonitor dengan hati-hati karena resiko ke ibu dan fetus akan meningkat. Metildopa, penyekat beta, dan vasodilator adalah obat-obat yang disukai demi keamanan fetus. ACEI dan ARB tidak boleh digunakan selama kehamilan karena berpotensi untuk cacat fetus dan harus dihindari pada perempuan yang diduga hamil atau berencana hamil. Preeklampsia timbul setelah minggu gestasi ke 20, ditandai dengan onset baru atau bertambah parahnya hipertensi, albuminuria, dan hiperurisemia, kadang-kadang dengan abnormalitas koagulasi.

Pada beberapa pasien, preeklampsi dapat menjadi hipertensi urgensi atau emergensi dan mungkin harus dirawat di rumah sakit, di monitor secara intensif dan dengan menggunakan terapi antihipertensi parenteral dan terapi antikonvulsi.
