Osteoporosis
X-ray
For Urdu Slides Click here

What is it?
Osteoporosis is a weakening of the bones, that can lead to breaks which are difficult to heal. Bones are made up of a thick outer shell with a honeycomb mesh inside.

Osteoporosis occurs when the gaps in this honeycomb become bigger making the bone fragile and brittle causing them to break easily. The wrists, hips and spine are particularly at risk.

What causes it?

During childhood and the teenage years the skeleton grows and develops, with the bones getting longer and the internal mesh becoming more dense until they achieve their greatest density when a person is in their late 20s. A natural part of the ageing process is that bones get weaker in people over 30 and the honeycomb becomes less dense. However, in some cases this occurs faster than in others leading to osteoporosis. A poor diet in youth can also lay the foundations for the disease in later life.

Who gets it?

Women are particularly at risk because they have smaller more fragile bones to start off with.
This is complicated by the menopause during which the body stops producing oestrogen - a hormone essential for good bone health.
And because of the natural ageing process, the risk increases with age. However, more and more research is indicating that the disease can affect younger people, with the National Osteoporosis Society reporting an increase in incidence of the disease among young women, particularly those who are underweight or who have suffered anorexia.

How can it be prevented?

Diet and exercise are the two key preventive measures. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy says skipping, jogging and aerobics are the best exercises to beat the disease. A high calcium, well-balanced diet throughout life but especially while the body is still developing is recommended.
Dr Nicola Keay, an osteoporosis researcher who has studied the effect of the disease on young women, said there were dangers in failing to find a balance.
"If you're doing too much exercise or don't eat enough, or if you don't do any exercise and eat lots of fast food, those extremes obviously aren't good," she said.
"The message is to get a balance - do enough exercise, eat a reasonable diet and don't go on a crash diet at 10 or 12 worrying about being too fat because it's the worst thing you can do for your bones."

What is the treatment?

Gentle exercise can help those who are already suffering the disease but have not yet suffered any fractures to rebuild bone strength.
Drug treatments can help restore levels of oestrogen in those who have stopped producing it, or target it to where it is needed in people who have low levels of the hormone.
These therapies include including hormone replacement therapy, oestrogen derivatives and a new generation of drugs known as selective oestrogen receptor modulators.

Is the world heading for a food crisis?


The World Bank has said a rapid rise in food prices could push 100 million people in poor countries deeper into poverty. This follows the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) warning that hundreds of thousands of people will face starvation if costs keep rising.
A world wide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:
"Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"
The survey was a huge failure, In Africa they didn't know what 'food' meant, In India they didn't know what 'honest' meant, In Europe they didn't know what 'shortage' meant, In China they didn't know what 'opinion' meant, In the Middle East they didn't know what 'solution' meant, In South America they didn't know what 'please' meant,
and in the USA they didn't know what 'The rest of the World meant!

Are you worried about the cost of basic foods?

The price of rice has risen by as much as 70% during the past year, with prices set to rise still further, The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has warned. Factors such as flooding, cold weather and urbanisation are depleting food supply.
Already food riots are leading to concerns of political instability.
Are you affected by growing food costs? Are you concerned rising food prices will weaken political stability where you live?

asalamualikum, thanks for ur contribution for the development of Pakistani community. I would like to draw ur attention to a problem. There is no school for Pakistani children in al Kharj. Recently Indian embassy opened a school here. I had to admit my daughter in this school as there is no Pakistani school in Al Kharj. Now the problem is that they teach children their own social study which is good for knowledge but in this way Pakistani children shall not be able to know about Pakistan and Urdu. I know that it is difficult but is it possible that through embassy we introduce our own book of social study and Urdu in Indian embassy school? By doing so our children will not forget their country. If opening of a Pakistani school is impossible then I think this step is easy for Pakistani embassy. I will be very grateful if our embassy do some thing about this serious issue.
Dear Bhai, thanks for the email. At times we feel that our community members think that this newsletter or all other community services that we provide are brought to you by the embassy. We notice this impression from your mail as well. Please note that we have no relationship with the embassy. We are a community driven community that operates without any any help from any Govt. channel. Now coming to your question, first attempt should be that a letter is written by parents in Al Kharj to the Ambassador and wait for his response. If no response received then do what we expect from CP community. Gather Pakistani parents and try to establish a private school yourself. I am sure you will find parents who can be of great help in such a project. CP can help you by first inviting parents in Al Kharj to such meeting and then also help you getting all the procedures for opening up such a community school.
Remember Allah SWT helps those who help themselves!
Time of depending on others is over as never there was a time that we depended on others and we achieved some thing!

 MOTHER 
Assalam-O-Aliakum!
Name one of the most demanding and least appreciated jobs in the world? ...Right. It is motherhood.
Mothers are one of the Godís greatest gifts. They nurture the child and shower unconditional love. Mothers frequently do so many of the overlooked daily jobs of living: packing lunches, sending kids off to school, helping with their homework, cooking food, doing grocery, laundryÖ and the list  goes on. Managing a household along with raising children is an exhausting job. Yet mothers are often the least appreciated members of a family because they
Fellows, like so many other Divine blessings, we take our parents for granted. We seldom appreciate what our parents do for us. Motherís day is celebrated yearly to honor mothers for so much that they do. Motherhood is a not a nine to four job, but a twenty four hour one. Then why shall we just be appreciative towards them for only a day. We shall continue to show our parents, mothers especially, how much we love them. This expression of love and affection shall not be just limited to words, but we shall implement it through our actions.
Mothers bear heat in kitchen in these scorching summers to prepare meal for her family, yet when the food is served, children fuss over it. How unjustified! And when something agreeable to the childís taste is on the table, children eat it and walk off without appreciating the hands that cooked it. Dear young friends, if any one of you happens to fall in this category of children, do change yourself. Compliment your mom for her work.
Once a child enters his teens, he thinks he is grown up and no longer needs motherís guidance. When mom is advising, he makes faces. Thatís very hurting. So all you such teenagers out thereÖ pay heed to your momís advices. Donít make her feel that you care not for what she is instructing you.
Many adolescents donít bother to tell their mother where they are going. Fellows, for a mother her children are her heart. She is bound to feel worried about them once they are out of her sight. So make it a habit to keep your parents informed about your where abouts. Never ever lie to her. And remember you never become too old to say sorry to your mother when you make a mistake.
Fellows, become a good human being and make your mother proud.
Ms. Amna Tariq Holy City of Makkah-Ul-Mukarrama
