As your due date draws near, youвre probably looking forward to losing your big belly and extra baby weight. But thereвs one thing you may not look forward to losing: Your thick, shiny pregnancy locks. Itвs not your imagination. Most women find that pregnancy makes their hair thicker. And itвs not the stress of having a newborn thatвs making your hair fall out! Hereвs whatвs up with your pregnancy hair, what you can expect postpartum, and what you can do about it. During pregnancy, your hormones change dramatically. One of the first to spike is human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG. Thatвs the hormone your pregnancy test measured and its rising levels indicated that you were pregnant.

By David Kellenberger, MPAS, RD, PA-C Hair loss after bariatric surgery is very common and very stressful. We all want to achieve great weight loss results and still have great hair. The hair loss associated with is called telogen effluvium and has to do with the normal hair growth cycle. It usually starts abruptly and very seldom lasts longer than 6 months. Human hair has a two stage growth cycle. The growth phase is called anagen and 90% of our hair follicles are in this phase at any given time.

Sometimes the stress comes from inside, rather than outside. You can stress yourself out just by about things. All of these factors can lead to stress: Fear and uncertainty. When you regularly hear about the threat of terrorist attacks, global warming, and toxic chemicals on the news, it can cause you to feel stressed, especially because you feel like you have no control over those events. And even though disasters are typically very rare events, their vivid coverage in the media may make them seem as if they are more likely to occur than they really are. Fears can also hit closer to home, such as being worried that you won't finish a project at work or won't have enough money to pay your bills this month. Attitudes and perceptions. How you view the world or a particular situation can
I am convinced that if NASA were to disappear tomorrow, if we never put up another Hubble Space Telescope, never put another human being in space, people in this country would be profoundly distraught. Americans would feel that we had lost something that matters, that our best days were behind us, and they would feel themselves somehow diminished. Yet I think most would be unable to say why. There are many good reasons to continue to explore space, which most Americans have undoubtedly heard. Some have been debated in public policy circles and evaluated on the basis of financial investment.

Becauseбwater is an appetite suppressant, drinking it before meals can make you feel fuller, therefore reducing the amount of food you eat. Health resource website WebMD states that drinking water before meals results in an average reduction in intake of 75 calories per meal.

Every year the U. N. and its member nations observe October 24th as United Nations Day around the world. Thats because the 24th of October marks that fall day in New York City in 1945 when nations ratified the Charter of the U. N. and launched humanitys second major attempt at forming a world Parliament. By far our most successful, this second attempt at global negotiation and cooperation has stopped famine, averted wars and given the world hope. Starting with just 51 member nations, the U.

While they recognize that the United Nations isnt perfect, Bahais in every country observe and celebrate this unique day, and work toward
