Is Facebook Responsible For Divorces?

So let me begin by asking the big question- is Facebook or other social networking sites responsible for broken marriages?..I know what you are thinking..No,not possible..

Well Lets get the statistics on board.Social networking sites like Facebook is the reason couples are experiencing break ups and the percentage is not acute..Using data compiled by 'Peoples Social Survey' where more than 16000 divorce cases have been analysed from 2001 to 2011, More than 30% Divorces have occured due to Facebook and such sites..

A recent survey conducted by a UK based divorce website disclosed that 33% behaviour divorce petitions filed cite Facebook as a Cause for filing for divorce in 2011..In 2009 the figure was 20%.

5000 people were surveyed by Divorce Online,the UK divorce website, during 2009 and 2011 covering Facebook as a means to check behaviour of spouse with the opposite sex.
* 3 reasons that came out on the top for listing Facebook in divorce petitions  were 1)inappropriate messages sent to opposite sex, 2)obscene pictures and 3)eventually infidelity.

Another report by the American Academy Of Matrimonial Lawyers claims that more than 80% of U.S divorce attorneys say that they have seen the number of cases involving social media increase drastically. 

Experts say that nowadays with facebook it is easier to start extra marital affairs as it only takes a few clicks to reconnect with a old flame.

Most of the research by clinicians and family scientists have indicated that suspicion is the major emotional factor that marks the beginning of the end..Suspicion leads to insecurity, pain and depression..A person suspects his or her soulmate even if he or she is innocent.
Extramaritial affair is other reason leading to divorces..

So you may be innocent or you may have betrayed your soulmate.But in any case chances of damage are very very high..30% is not a small figure..30 broken marriages out of 100 is alarming..Very Alarming!

Can We Question ourselves today. Was life more calm and happy before such sites ran havoc in our lives?..
Who is to be blamed,Facebook or Us? 
What have we gained by spending hours and hours on facebook?
What have we lost? Was it worth it after all??.

Heart Disease-No 1 Killer In Women

When you hear the term 'Heart Disease,' what is your first reaction? Like many women, you may think, “That’s a man’s disease” or “Not my problem.”
But here is The Heart Truth: Heart disease is the number one killer of women . Most women don’t know this. But it is vital that you know it—and know what it means for you.

One woman dies almost every minute from Heart Disease.Yet Studies Show that only 21%One woman view Heart Disease as Health Threat.

Worldwide 8.6 million women die of heart disease each year, accounting for a third of all deaths in women. With all the risk factors common to men additionally use of Oral Contraceptive pills is there in women. So women should be educated about everything they need to know about their heart.

According to statistics, the mortality rate among women suffering from cardiovascular diseases is also higher than that of men across the world, including India. The main reason behind the increased mortality rate in women is the changes in lifestyle in metropolitan cities. In big cities women are working late shifts and more and more women are taking help of smoking and drinking to deal with the stress of personal and professional life.

'Risk Factors'

1) Non Modifiable : Age , Family history and sex.

2) Modifiable :
High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Obesity , smoking, Alcohol, Unhealthy Diet, Stress and depression, Sedentary lifestyle.

Following are the Risk Factors That Play a Bigger Role in Women.
These factors affect both men and women, but doctors are finding that they may have a bigger impact on women:

a) Diabetes. This in particular is a more potent risk factor for women. Women who have diabetes have a four to five times more elevated risk for heart disease.

b) Birth Control Pills : Studies show that women who use high-dose birth control pills are more likely to have a heart attack or stroke because blood clots are more likely to form in the blood vessels.

Much of this information comes from studies of birth control pills containing higher doses of hormones than those commonly used today. Still, the risks of using low-dose pills are not fully known.
Therefore, if you are now taking any kind of birth control pill or are considering using one, keep these guidelines in mind: Don’t mix smoking and “the pill.” If you smoke cigarettes, make a serious effort to quit. If you cannot quit, choose a different form of birth control.

If you eat a nutritious diet, engage in regular physical activity, maintain a healthy weight, and stop smoking, you will improve your heart health. No matter what heart disease risk factors you have—or how many—you will greatly benefit from taking action in these four areas. If you already have heart disease, you can lessen its severity by following this plan.
