Nov 18, 2016: Avashya foundation, an NGO under India’s foremost integrated logistics provider Allcargo Logistics has extended its efforts to the state of Rajasthan after completing a successful tree plantation drive in Karnataka.

The NGO is affiliated with Grow-Trees.com which is an exclusive Indian partner for the United Nation’s Environment Program (UNEP) and has planted 1711 trees on the perimeter of the Sitamata Wildlife Sanctuary in Rajasthan.

Living in a country where people find merriment during festivals in spreading blankets of smoke around their cities, it is refreshing to learn that some of us are doing our part in celebrating the beautiful life this planet has given us and are working towards paying back our debts. Such actions are a step towards purification of the air we breathe, beautification of our environment and bringing optimism into the hearts of people.

This initiative by Avashya falls under its flagship environment sustainability programme, Maitree. Avashya has planted over 2,39,000 trees under this program in the last two years.

“This initiative is in line with Avashya Foundation’s endeavor to give back to society in several different ways. Planting trees is a classic investment that pays rich dividends for the planet and our aim is to plant 10 lacs trees in the next 5 years under this initiative. I would also like to take a moment to thank Grow-Trees.com for completing the drive successfully in Karnataka & Rajasthan.” said Ms. Arathi Shetty the Non-Executive Director of Allcargo and Avashya Foundation on the plantation drive.

Testosterone Level Determined by Environment During Childhood, Says Study

Men who grew up in challenging conditions like prevalence of infectious diseases or poor nutrition may have lower levels of testosterone — male sex hormone — in later life, says a study.

The findings suggest that the differences may be linked to energy investment. For instance, in environments where people are more exposed to disease or poor nutrition, developing males direct their energy towards survival at the cost of testosterone.

While high testosterone levels may up the risk of ageing, muscle mass, prostate enlargement and cancer, lower levels may cause lack of energy, erectile dysfunction etc. Thus, the researchers suggest that any screening for risk profiles may need to take a man’s childhood environment into account.

“Very high and very low testosterone levels can have implications for men’s health and it could be important to know more about men’s childhood circumstances to build a fuller picture of their risk factors for certain conditions or diseases,” said Gillian Bentley from Britain’s Durham University.

For the study, published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, the team collected data from 359 men born and still resident in Bangladesh; Bangladeshi men who moved to London as children; Bangladeshi men who moved to London as adults; second-generation, Britain born men whose parents were Bangladeshi migrants; and Britain born ethnic Europeans.

The results showed that Bangladeshi men who grew up and lived as adults in Britain had significantly higher levels of testosterone compared to relatively well-off men who grew up and lived in Bangladesh as adults.

Bangladeshis in Britain also reached puberty at a younger age and were taller than men who lived in Bangladesh throughout their childhood.

Further, it was also found that the aspects of male reproductive function remain changeable up to the age of 19 and are more flexible in early rather than late childhood, but no longer heavily influenced by their surroundings. (IANS)
