Should we be worried about cholesterol?

My grandmother lived a happy life in to her nineties…. Her mantra was: Enjoy life - Work hard, Eat well, Be happy! She ate a healthy home cooked food everyday, never bothered to check on the carbs, fats, cholesterol or the calories in the food. We are natives of the coastal region of Karnataka, and our cooking had a liberal quantity of coconut in all its forms (grated coconut,coconut oil,coconut water), in our chutney, sambar or Payasa. My grandmother grew up cooking and eating all these and much more. Concerned about her health we would force her for an annual health screening.

Baby's heartbeat

Although the precursor to heart begins to form in the embryo from 4 weeks. It may not be heard. It is still in the form of a tube. By the sixth week of pregnancy, this tube would have twisted turned and molded itself in a heart with 4 chambers and it may have actually begun to beat too, albeit at 110 to 120 beats per minute. In another two weeks i.e by 8 weeks, the heartbeat of the embryo increases to 150 -170 beats per minute.
