1. Climate change since decades
Climate change affects human health both directly and indirectly. People are exposed directly to changing weather patterns (temperature, precipitation, sea-level rise and more frequent extreme events) and indirectly through changes in the quality of water, air and food, and changes in ecosystems, agriculture, industry, human settlements and the economy. These direct and indirect exposures can cause following changes in our body :
2. Traditional dietary habits
Traditional dietary habits often do not meet good nutritional requirements, with a preference for polished rice and leafy vegetables of poor nutritional quality.While food habits vary at regional and even individual household levels, in general, food preparation methods result in significant nutrient loss. Minerals and vitamins, especially B-complex vitamins are lost (40 percent of thiamine and niacin) even during the washing of rice before cooking. Boiling rice and then discarding the water results in even more nutrient losses. The manner of washing and cooking vegetables leads to considerable loss of vitamin C and B-complex vitamins.
If you’re overdoing your meat portions, there’s a good chance you’re skimping on other food groups. Vitamin C is rarely found in animal products, so if you’re eating meat in place of produce, you could become deficient. Vitamin C plays a role in forming collagen, a protein that gives structure to skin, hair, nails, bones, and more. Your skin could be rough and bumpy. You might see some interesting body hair growth.
The saturated fats in meat can boost inflammation in the body, research in the European Journal of Nutrition-found. Plus, meat is severely lacking in inflammation-fighting antioxidants compared to produce which are very important in ones hair growth.
Androgenetic alopecia is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. In men, this condition is also known as male-pattern baldness. Hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples and frontal region . Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic “M” shape. Hair also thins at the crown (near the top of the head), often progressing to partial or complete baldness which can be divided in grade wise manner.
The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male-pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head.
This alopecia is very much common & most prevailing cause among other reasons . It is due to excess of DHT hormone a byproduct of testosterone hormone & combination of heredity from any maternal or paternal side . When this two causes combine the DHT has affinity towards the hair follicle and making it weaker and weaker day by day.
Dandruff can happen to anyone, and it is nothing to be embarrassed about. Dandruff is a skin condition that occurs on the scalp which causes irritation and flakes.
Similar to dandruff, a dry scalp also causes the skin to flake but this can be treated with different moisturising products and is not actually dandruff. On the other hand, dandruff is caused due to an increase in oil production on the scalp which then leads to the growth of yeast. Loose white flakes and irritation with scalp oiliness are indicators of dandruff.
If you are in a place that has a humid climate, your scalp is most likely to get dandruff. Humidity and hot air can cause you to sweat, especially on your scalp. Excessive sweating means excess oil production which therefore can lead to the development of dandruff. This is why most people experience dandruff during the monsoon seasons as well due to the high humidity levels in the atmosphere which is most prevailing in Bangladesh due to its environment.
