Have you ever looked at your grandparents as the years went by and wondered if they got shorter every year, or was it an optical illusion as you grew? Well don’t worry, because it is normal for everyone to lose some height as they age.

Why do we shrink as we age? Over the years, the discs between your spine’s vertebrae flatten, your muscles start to lose mass and the spaces between your joints will narrow. 

Have you ever looked at your grandparents as the years went by and wondered if they got shorter every year, or was it an optical illusion as you grew? Well don’t worry, because it is normal for everyone to lose some height as they age.

Why do we shrink as we age? Over the years, the discs between your spine’s vertebrae flatten, your muscles start to lose mass and the spaces between your joints will narrow.

Based on the National Library of Medicine, people typically lose almost one-half inch (about 1 centimetre) every 10 years after age 40. While losing some height as you get older is normal, a significant loss of height can be attributed to osteoporosis.

Taking care of your bones will help you reach your full potential to perform at your best. Find out more on osteoporosis and some vital advice on taking care of your bones from the expert, Dr Ahmad Norshahrid Zahari, Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon from KPJ Sentosa KL Specialist Hospital.

What is Osteoporosis?

According to Dr Ahmad, osteoporosis, or porous bones, is a systemic disease in which the bones lose density.  It causes the bones to become thin, weak, more fragile and would fracture easily even if it is only a trivial injury. Having osteoporotic fractures can reduce mobility and may affect quality of life.

When you’re young, your body makes new bones faster than it breaks down old bones and your bone mass increases. After your early 20s this process slows, and most people reach their peak bone mass by age 30. As people age, bone mass is lost faster than it’s created.

The common areas of the bones where osteoporosis would occur?

“Osteoporosis affects all bones of the body, and fractures usually occur at the regions with more cancellous bones since they are more porous and active in bone remodelling than cortical bones. Examples includes:

Can we stop bone loss from happening?

According to Dr Ahmad Norshahrid, we cannot stop our bone loss, because it is a natural ageing process and also because it has to do with our hormonal changes when we age, especially for women when their estrogen levels start to decline.

However, we can reduce our bone loss progression by taking the necessary amount of calcium  as part of balanced diet which can be found in:

  • Milk

  • Dairy products

  • Green leafy vegetables

  • Soy and soy products 

It is even more effective if you start consuming food intake with adequate amounts of calcium in your early years. Then when you become older it will serve as a cloak of protection for your bones.

How much calcium and vitamin D do I need every day?

Based on the Recommended Nutrient Intakes (RNI) for Malaysia, 2017, the calcium intake for young people is 1000mg per day. For women who are in their menopause stage, they should consume 1200mg of calcium per day.

The body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. Without enough calcium, the body would take calcium from its stores in the bones, which weakens existing bone and prevents the formation of strong, new bone.

You can get vitamin D in three ways: 

  • Through the skin from sunlight, 

  • Your Diet

  • Supplements

It is recommended a daily vitamin D intake of 15 – 20 µg, RNI,2017. Examples of Vitamin D-rich foods are egg yolks, saltwater fish, liver, and fortified milk.

The pandemic made us sit up and realize that mere sweeping and mopping is not enough to keep a house clean.

Do you know that there are places within our homes that could be insidiously harbouring numerous infections unknown to us? These are some places that you may have forgotten to clean.

The pandemic made us sit up and realize that mere sweeping and mopping is not enough to keep a house clean.

Do you know that there are places within our homes that could be insidiously harbouring numerous infections unknown to us? These are some places that you may have forgotten to clean.

1) Poor air conditioner system

When you fail to maintain your air conditioner, it collects high concentrations of dust, pollen, and mold. All of this can increase the risk of developing asthma, or even a respiratory tract infection. Also make sure to dust off the debris collecting around the air conditioner as it would stain the walls in the long run.

2) What is lurking behind your refrigerator and microwave?

Two areas often neglected in the kitchen are behind the refrigerator and the microwave. Sort of the out of sight, out of mind theory, right?

Lots of dust on the coils can cause a refrigerator to run inefficiently

Plus, the walls behind the refrigerator also need attention because if the area is damp, mold can grow on the walls. Look behind your microwave too! We’ll bet you didn’t realize the wall behind your microwave is also dusty with cobwebs.

Remember, these are the appliances you use to store and heat up your food. If it is not cleaned thoroughly, it will affect your health.

3) Clean your furniture

Light switches, door knobs, door bells, faucets, cupboard shelves, sofas, and kitchen countertops have been identified as surfaces that are touched most frequently.

These are inadvertently touched by family members and guests

before hands are sanitised and can harbour infections that can spread swiftly.

Also look at the walls behind your furniture pieces. You may be shocked at what you find clinging on it. Start vacuuming and get rid of that dirt today! 

4) Don’t forget to remove the debris from your blinds

During spring cleaning, it is often that the blinds are overlooked, until one day we realize they’re coated with dust, or they’ve gotten yellow and discolored from the sun. Whether they are wooden, fabric or plastics make sure to dust off those dirt as they would affect the cleanliness of your walls too.

5) If walls could speak, they’d tell you about the germs on them.

When we are indoors we are surrounded by the walls of our home, the largest indoor surface which could be a medium of transmission of viruses and bacteria. We may not realize it, but we often touch walls during our daily activities, making walls a top breeding ground for viruses and bacteria to lurk on!

Now with most of us spending our time indoors, it’s essential that we ensure our surroundings are well protected.

Therefore, choosing the right type of paint is important not only for its aesthetic function but also to foster an ideal indoor environment.

Lack of physical activity may affect muscle and bone health

Lack of physical activity may affect muscle and bone health

 

 

Physical inactivity, 4ᵗʰ leading risk of mortality

Poor posture may affect bones and muscle health

The prolonged RMCO measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic have been disrupting our daily routine unprecedentedly where not only our movement is restricted, but our physical activity as well. The 2019 National Health and Morbidity Survey findings show that 1 in 4 Malaysian adults were physically inactive. Globally, physical inactivity has been reported as the fourth leading risk factor for mortality¹.

Poor posture may strain bones and muscles

Physical inactivity or sedentary lifestyle over long period of time is one of the triggers for  muscle loss and poor bone health. Long hours of working in front of a computer without having proper posture and breaks, could have detrimental effects to your health without you knowing. For example, sitting for too long can make our hip flexor muscles to shorten that leads to problems of the hip joints.  Besides, other common troubles include poor posture, numbness, soreness and stiffness around the neck, shoulders, back and even legs. Poor posture may strain bones and muscles.

Strong bones, joints and muscles are important to support mobility

The changes in our bones and muscles may affect our movement such as walking and the strength to carry things and flexibility to do our daily chores. In some cases, it may lead to the development of serious health concerns such as osteoporosis and other musculoskeletal issues in the long term.

Musculoskeletal disorders, bone health and chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is one of the early prevention steps to help care for bone and muscle health.  Having strong bones and muscles helps to protect you from falling, which is a common factor for bone fractures.

“We are healthcare professionals who perform diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders alongside prevention counseling. ‘Neuro’ refers to the nerves while ‘muscular’ revolves around matters affecting the muscles,” explains Dr Sean Lee from Discover Chiropractic.

When the nerves and muscles are functioning properly, it helps improve the ability to turn and tilt. Chiropractors also perform soft tissue therapies, stretches and exercises and some other treatments to help improve your mobility and stability, while relieving pain, soreness, and stiffness around the affected areas. By applying appropriate chiropractic treatments, it helps strengthen the muscles and tissues surrounding your bones to stabilize your movement, which is instrumental in maintaining mobility health.

 

Prevention is better than cure

Healthy lifestyles start with balanced diet and regular exercise

 

A balanced diet that includes food high in calcium (e.g. milk and dairy products, leafy greens, legumes, tofu) and protein is one of the keys to maintaining strong bones and muscle that is important to support good mobility. It’s also important to include vitamin D that helps to absorb calcium. Besides, protein⁴ provides important building block for our body defence system to help protect us from harmful foreign invaders.

The prolonged RMCO measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic have been disrupting our daily routine unprecedentedly where not only our movement is restricted, but our physical activity as well. The 2019 National Health and Morbidity Survey findings show that 1 in 4 Malaysian adults were physically inactive. Globally, physical inactivity has been reported as the fourth leading risk factor for mortality¹.

14th Malaysian Media Conference boasts buzz worthy speakers set to lead discourse on the industry’s recovery strategy, registration open now.

The Malaysian Media Conference (MMC) is back for its 14th year! Registrations officially started rolling in last week as soon as the page went live; unsurprising for an industry that has been deprived of physical gatherings for almost half a year.

The annual MMC is a proven landmark event for all media and marketing professionals to get everyone on the same page one day in the year. There has never been a year as important as 2020 for stakeholders in our industry to come together and assist each other to bounce back from the unparalleled challenges we’ve been smacked in the face with.

“As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery of our industries, MMC 2020 will offer insights from experts to help inspire the media and marketing industries to determine the future state of Malaysia’s communication landscape,” said the organising committee of MMC 2020.

The committee added that by hosting a grand industry gathering, MMC 2020 is officially initiating The Great Comeback.

This year, MMC is bringing bright minds together, to give talks that are focused on inspiring the individuals who make up Malaysia’s media landscape, foster learning, inspiration and wonder – inevitably provoking conversations that matter for our industry. The line-up of expert speakers include media owners, advertisers, marketers and agency individuals.

Regional Director of Marketing from McDonald’s Malaysia, Eugene Lee is one of the speakers and will be discussing the idea ‘If you don’t get it, don’t get into it’, to emphasise the importance of understanding what you’re marketing, beforehand. Karen Chan, CEO of Asean’s fastest growing travel platform, AirAsia.com will also be part of the conference as a guest speaker. Visit the official conference website for the full list of speakers and panelists.

“One of the goals for this year’s conference is to trigger an open discourse on the “knots” faced by three symbiotic industries and the potential synergies that could be activated by addressing these challenges,” said the chairman of the organising committee, Harmandar Singh. “While COVID-19 has exposed our flaws and vulnerabilities as an industry, it has created the opportunity for us to have more raw and uncensored discussions on what’s wrong and how to fix it and it’s time for our industry to have that conversation, led by a line-up of speakers and panelists who are experts in their own field.”

When asked why a boomerang was used as the official conference logo, the organising committee explained that when they conceptualised the idea that led them to this year’s conference theme, they realised that the marketing, media and advertising industry needs a unique weapon to achieve a remarkable recovery.

“A boomerang is a rare example of a non-ballistic weapon,” a representative from the organising committee added. “When used correctly, boomerangs fly roughly parallel to the ground and as long as they maintain sufficient speed and rotation, they can resist the force of gravity.”

Similarly, the goal of MMC 2020 is to inspire Malaysia’s media landscape to follow the trends on the ground while remaining one step ahead and to be flexible as they keep moving forward towards The Great Comeback.

Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of each stakeholder, MMC 2020, in its 14th year, is designed to provide an unparalleled platform for creating, shaping and delivering collaborative solutions for the upcoming decade.
