Was reading an article today which made my ears go “toing”!!!
Apparently, studies have shown that Male population of the planet have chances of becoming extinct.
To give readers a background, women have XX chromosome, and men have XY chromosome. When human beings reproduce, the following permutation and combination of chromosomes are possible
X <-> X => XX (Girl)
X <-> Y => XY (Boy)
To cut a long story short… women have only X Chromosome to contribute, while men have either X or Y chromosome to contribute to the foetus. Hence, men are the ones who actually decide the sex of the child.
Now, Y Chromosome travels faster than X, but it also has a shorter lifespan. Hence, it is a matter of great medical concern that Y chromosomes will eventually cease to exist… What will happen then? Will there be an another chromosome adopting the role of Y chromosome?
Well.. all that remains to be seen. For now, a few things are of paramount importance:
Let us not try and go against Nature. Nature has a way of coming back and with much more power than imagined. By going against Nature, I do not entirely mean climactic nature, I also mean Physiological nature of human body.
Our body is built in such a way that it needs 8-10 hours of sleep. It needs constant nutrition and care. And what do we do with it?
Sleep late. Wake up late. Eat unhealthy. Sometimes not eat at all. Sit in front of the laptops the whole day and do not breathe fresh air. Nor do we exercise regularly.
Is it surprising then that most people in the age group of 20-45 are succumbing to fatal and terminal diseases at such a young age? Whatever happened to an average lifespan of 100 years? With all our advanced medical sciences, infertility is increasing at an alarming rate and so are miscarriages.
It is time to now sit back and take notice. It is never too late to change the habits which are pushing us towards self-destruction. It is now time to go back to our roots and do what sages used to do – Eat right, think right and live right 🙂
