OBJECTIVE India spans the spectrum of under- and overnutrition disorders and does so in generous proportions. India also tops the charts globally in the prevalence of risk factors for several chronic diseases. Although Public Health Nutrition (PHN) - both as an academic field as well as a means to improved health - has been around for two centuries in(More)
One-third of India’s urban population resides in extreme poverty, in slums and squatters. Food insecurity remains a visible reality among this segment. Yet, it is scarcely documented. This paper describes levels and determinants of experiential household food insecurity (HFI) in an underserved urban slum of Delhi (India) and reports the internal validity(More)
The hallmarks of carcinogenesis are characterized by alterations in the expression of multiple genes that occur via genetic and epigenetic alterations, leading to genome rearrangements and instability. The reversible process of epigenetic regulation, which includes changes in DNA methylation, histone modifications, and alteration in microRNA (miRNA)(More)
The world’s surface temperature has increased at an unprecedented rate due to global warming. This has impacted the hydrological cycle and rainfall pattern. The Indian Summer Monsoon Rainfall season (ISMR), which plays a very important role in regulating the floods and droughts, regulates the crop yield, well being of the society, employment generation, and(More)
This paper includes the proper discussion of why the 3G was not good enough for the wireless communication and why then 4G was evolved . There are many disadvantages of 3G due to which 4G came . some of them are they require nearby base stations and they are very expensive, the cost of up gradation of cellular infrastructures are very costly which is a very(More)
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is a multistep process which is modulated by several endogenous and environmental factors. Epigenetic changes have been found to be equally responsible for OSCC as genetic changes. A plethora of genes showing hypermethylation have been discovered in OSCC. Since these changes are reversible, a lot of emphasis is on using(More)
Cancer is caused by genetic as well as epigenetic changes. Chemotherapy is considered the mainstay of cancer therapy. But multiple side effects of chemotherapy has created a demand for developing other novel and specific targets for cancer therapy. The potential reversibility of epigenetic changes have resulted in the reactivation of epigenetically silenced(More)
