The New Age Bio-Degradable Plastic for Swacch Bharat

Swacch Bharat, a campaign whose tune wakes us all up early every morning, isn’t new to anyone. However, even after listening to it daily it still hasn’t registered with us. Every single household to this date uses products that are harmful for the environment. One of the most harmful products for our environment and yet most regularly used in every Indian household is: Plastic.

If you don’t believe us then please walk up to your kitchen, can you now see a bag hanging behind the door carrying more of its like inside it? Yes, this is plastic. How many of you actually know that plastic or ‘polythenes’ as usually referred to take 500 years to decompose in a landfill. Given the number of these poly-bags in each household, we can say that we do not need anything else to destroy our environment.plastic.jpgIf we roam around in the residential areas of Jaipur, we will easily find one corner of every street filled with garbage packed in polythenes. As per the reports on usage of plastic, the world’s consumption of plastic bags has been on a rapid increase with around 25 million tons of plastic getting accumulated in the environment. On an average a plastic bag is used for hardly 20 mins but stays in the environment for hundreds of years. In our country alone the per capita consumption of plastic is 5kg annually. Every 5 years the consumption is getting doubled.IMG_5071Given such a grave situation wouldn’t it be better that we move away from such harmful items and look for alternatives. Recently Jaipur Beat came got a chance to learn about Biodegradable bags developed by Biotec Bags. Luckily they are a convenient alternative to using plastic and are 100% degradable. Biodegradable plastics are made up with polythene mixed with an enzyme that helps in shortening the chemical bonds within the polythene, which in turn makes it easy to decompose.IMG_5063These bags have a shelf life of two years and are affordable in comparison to paper, cloth and jute bags. The bio-degradable plastic can be used as a carry bag and also as a garbage bag.  Do you wish to know how much time does a Biotec bag take to decompose? The answer is 180 days. It is so because of the construction of these bags. The bacteria present in the soil can easily chew on these bags once they are disposed off.IMG_5059This product by Biotech bags comes at an affordable price of Rs. 2.30 and is multipurpose. It comes in two different sizes to offer more utility to the customers. Not only this, the company also manufactures small packages containing four of these bags for placing it in your cars.

IMG_5054Now that you have learned about a 100% harmless option to plastic, we are sure that you will prefer to use this affordable option instead. To get your hands on bio degradable plastic bags you just need to get in touch with the company on 9414070245 or mail them on krn.nagrajan@hotmail.com.

Let’s Fight Cancer Together!

The month of February is ‘National Cancer Prevention Month’ and the ‘World Cancer Day’ happens to fall in the same month. So in the spirit of awareness – raising, Jaipur Beat would like to share some information to make you all a little more aware about the disease cancer.

Today, cancer is a common household word, with each of us associated with at least one near and dear one, a family member or a friend, a neighbour or a colleague, diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is often unpredictable, but there are ways in which some cancer risk factors can be avoided. What’s important is that your attitude and approach can help you greatly lower your risk for serious diseases like cancer, and boost your odds of living a longer and healthier life. Many lifestyle factors including smoking, the typical high-fat, refined-sugar diet and physical inactivity account for the majority of cancer.

 

Cancer

Cancer develops gradually as a result of a complex mix of factors related to Environment, Lifestyle, and Heredity. It is estimated that about 80 percent of all cancers are related to the use of tobacco products, to what we eat and drink, or, to exposure to radiation or cancer-causing agents in the environment. Early detection of cancer can greatly improve the odds of successful treatment and survival. Hence one should consult a doctor for regular checkups and not wait for problems to occur.

Most Common Types Of Cancers

Cancer of the head, neck, lungs and throat is the most common type of cancer in India that is caused by eating tobacco and drinking alcohol. Stomach cancer, skin cancer, intestine cancer and breast cancer are some other prevalent cancers in India.in Though in the past few decades, there has been a stability in the number of ovarian cancers cases in India but it is estimated that by the year 2025, the number of people suffering from breast cancer in India will double.

Support for Cancer Patients

Cancer patients and those who care about them face many problems and challenges. Coping with these problems becomes much easier when people have right information and support services where they live. Patients suffering from cancer tend to become irritable or depressed. Proper counselling and discussions on the treatment options help the patients to deal with the challenges that come with cancer in a much better way. The doctor who takes care of the patient is in the best position to discuss the chance of recovery (prognosis) and kind of treatment required. But there are many people in India who cannot afford a proper check up and treatment. Our government needs to change the system to reach such people and bring out effective change.

Cancer Prevention

Cancers that are closely linked to certain behaviors are the easiest to prevent. For example, choosing not to smoke tobacco or drink alcohol significantly lower the risk of several types of cancer – most notably lung, throat, mouth, and liver cancer. Diet plays a multitude of roles in the development of cancer as substances in the diet can either enhance or inhibit the growth of the cancerous cells. Physicians recommend diets that are low in fat and rich in fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eating right, staying physically active and maintaining a healthy weight, can cut cancer risk by a 30-40 percent.

Cancer Treatment in Jaipur

There is no single treatment for cancer, and patients receive a combination of therapies and palliative care. With the advances in technology, cancer is diagnosed more frequently. The myths associated with cancer are vanishing and people have become more open to accepting cancer diagnosis and discussing cancer openly. With a mission to create a comprehensive tertiary care center for cancer treatment where patients are served with world-class facilities, Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Jaipur (BMCHRC) is an institution that came into existence in the year 1997 and has made a landmark in delivering cancer care services to the afflicted population of the country over the years. Besides BMCHRC, there are many noted oncologists in the city known for their expertise, skills and experience. Dr. Arun Gupta, Dr. Sanjeev Patni, Dr. Anish Maru, Dr. Lalit Mohan Sharma, Dr. Ranu Patni, Dr. Nidhi Patni, Dr. Nitin Khuteta, Dr. Ajay Bapna, Dr. Naresh Somani are to name a few.  As world cancer day approaches, take a step to bring smiles on faces who don’t have a reason to. You can donate , volunteer and support the cause of cancer prevention at various hospitals like BMCHRC and make life easier for many cancer patients and survivors. Contact Details are as follows-
