SCIENCE BEHIND SUPERSTITIONS

‘WILL LIVE MORE -100YEARS’ OUR GRANDMA SAYS TO A BABY WHEN HE/SHE SNEEZES!
WHERE AS
PEOPLE SAY ‘GOD BLESS YOU!’ WHEN SOMEBODY SNEEZES IN A GATHERING, ABROAD
WHY DO THEY SAY SO AND HAVE AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT OPINION FOR THE SAME SYMPTOM?


SNEEZING IS ONE OF THE EARLIEST SYMPTOMS OF COMMON COLD. COMMON COLD IS AN INFECTION CAUSED BY MORE THAN 110 VIRUSES AND AS SUCH IF TO PROTECT ,ONE HAS TO HAVE SO MANY ANTIGENIC VACCINES.

IT IS BETTER TO MANAGE COLD THAN TO HAVE SO MANY SHOTS OF VACCINES. THAT’S WHY WE HEAR PEOPLE JOKE THAT IT WILL TAKE SEVEN DAYS TO CURE A COMMON COLD OR A WEEK FOR IT TO GO AWAY NATURALLY .

TODAY SCIENTIST ARE ON THE JOB IN CREATING POLYVALENT VACCINE AGAINGT COMMON GROUP OF VIRUSES.

SYMPTOMS VARY DEPENDING UPON THE TYPE OF VIRUS AND ITS POWER TO INFECT THE BODY WHAT WE CALL AS VIRULANCE. INFACT OUR BODY ALWAYS TRIES TO DEFEND THE FOREIGNER BY VARIUS WAYS WHEN THE VIRUS TRIES TO ENTER THE BODY WHICH RESULTS SOME SYMPTOMS OF COLD.

FIRSTLY THE BODY TRYS TO EJECT / SNEEZE AWAY THE VIRUSES AND SOMETIMES AFTER FEW ‘ ACHOO..’ ‘S YOU GET ALRIGHT.

SOME VIRUSES ARE POWERFUL , AS SIMPLE SNEEZING CAN’T GET RID OFF THEM AND THEREFORE BODY SECREATS FLUIDS TO WASH AWAY THE GERMS, WHICH IS EXHIBITED AS RUNNING NOSE - AGAIN YOU MAY BECOME ALRIGHT.

SOME FAMILIES OF VIRUSES ARE REALLY POWERFUL AND JUST MANAGE TO ESCAPE PREVIOUS DEFENCE MECHANISMS , BREAKS OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM AND ENTERS INTO THE RESPIRATORY TRACT WHICH IS THE BEST PLACE FOR THEM TO GROW AND MULTIPLY. DURING THE PROCESS WE FEEL THE IRRITATION AND BURNING SENSATION.

ALL ORGANISMS IN THE WORLD ARE SURROUNDED BY MILLIONS OF BACTERIAS AND HUMANS ARE NO EXCEPTION.THATS WAY TODAY WHEN YOU SEE AN ADVERTISEMENT OF A GERM KILLER OR AN ANTISEPTIC SOAP OR A FOOD PRODUCT, THE PETRY DISH WILL SHOW ATLEAST FEW BACTERIAS , WHICH AT NO TIME A ZERO-FREE.

THESE BACTERIAS ARE OPPORTUNIST AND WHEN THEY SEE A BREAK IN TISSUES CREATED BY VIRUSES HAPPILY FOLLOW, AND FUTHER INFECT THE TISSUES WHAT IS CALLED SECONDRY INFECTION.NOW OUR BODY FEELS SIMPLE DEFENSIVE MECHANISM WILL NOT BE ENOUGH AND SENDS THE SOLDIERS TO FIGHT THE BATTLE AND THIS TIME THOSE DIE LIKE THE WHITE BLOOD CELLS AND BACTERIAS  FORMS THE PHLEUM ( THICH GREENISH YELLOW MUCOUS) WHICH COMPLICATES THE RESPIRATION.

ANY CARELESSNESS OR CONTINUOUS STREES DURING THIS STAGE WILL FURTHER COMPLICATE THE BODY SYSTEMS AND CAN LEAD TO A SIMPLE LUNG INFECTION (BRONCHITIS) TO A LIFE THREATENING COMPLICATION LIKE PNEUMONIA.

THAT’S WHY A FRIEND SAYS ‘ GOD BLESS YOU’ THE MOMENT WHEN HE/SHE SEES THAT SOMEBODY IS INFECTED WITH A COMMON COLD INFECTION AS TO WISH THE INDIVIDUAL TO GET THE BEST BODY DEFENCE TO AVOID FURTHER COMPLICATIONS.



BUT THE INDIANS HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION. THE GRANDMA TAKES IT POSITIVELY AND SHE MAKES A COMMENT THAT EVEN AT THIS TENDER AGE THE BABY PUTS HIS/HER FULL PHYSIOLOGICAL DEFENCE TO RESIST AND FIGHT AGAINST THE COMMON COLD THEREBY HE/SHE WILL HAVE ENOUGH DEFENCE TO FIGHT SO MANY DISEASES WHEN HE/SHE GROWS. THAT’S WHY SHE SAYS THE BABY WILL LIVE-MORE EVEN UPTO 100 YEARS AFTER HE/SHE SNEEZES.
