Cholesterol has been at the center of much research for a long time – ever since it was identified that stroke and heart attacks result from a process happening in blood vessels called atherosclerosis.
What is Atherosclerosis?
Atherosclerosis simply means hardening of the blood vessel walls; what it entails is a progressive deposition of cholesterol in specific regions of the vessel wall with subsequent changes, all of which lead to formation of ‘plaques’ in the vessels walls. These plaques undergo further changes and can become unstable, rupture, and form clots or thrombus (plural, thrombi) on their surfaces.

The Heart Always Wins

A long time ago, there lived a pious family in one of the princely kingdoms of ancient India. The father was a court priest and much revered for his scriptural knowledge. His wife, a simple woman with few needs, tended to the house and their child, a bonny baby born after many years of prayer to God.
 
This child was growing up fast, sharp in intelligence, with a quick tongue. Soon he was a strapping young lad, handsome of figure & quick of wits. He earned the reputation of a scholar very fast, and there… Read the rest

Pregnant women with epilepsy are a highly vulnerable population; they have to balance the risk posed to the pregnancy from having a fit, against the risk of taking medicines to control the fits.
There are a few anti-epileptic drugs which have been shown to increase the risk of congenital malformations in the baby; the risk is reduced considerably by the use of Folic Acid, which is now used even in pregnant women without epilepsy.
