Common pain medications can also cause heart attacks and strokes, research shows

The US and Chinese experts have discovered in a joint study that certain painkillers can cause high blood pressure, heart disease, and even stroke because they contain sodium.

Top of the list is paracetamol, which contains a significant amount of sodium to make it instantly soluble in water.

The most important component of salt is sodium which is very important for our health. But if the amount of sodium in the body is too much, instead of making us healthy, this sodium can also make us suffer from diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

According to the World Health Organization, no more than 2000 milligrams (half a teaspoon) of sodium should reach our body in a day, while the American Heart Association has set a lower limit of 1500 milligrams) of sodium should reach our body in a day.

With this limit in mind, experts found that each 500 mg tablet of paracetamol (acetaminophen) contained about 400 mg of sodium.

It is one of the most widely used painkillers in the world and is available at almost every medical store.

This means that people who take just two tablets of paracetamol a day are adding 800 milligrams of sodium to their diet, which can be detrimental to their health in the long run.

But is that really possible? To find out, they searched an extensive British public health database.

Of this, detailed health data for about 300,000 British citizens aged 60 or over, covering a year, was taken.

All of these seniors were those who used paracetamol daily. About half of them were without sodium, while the rest were taking sodium paracetamol.

Elderly people who used sodium paracetamol daily had a slightly higher risk of disease and death over the next year than others, such as hypertension, heart attack and stroke.

The relationship between sodium intake and heart disease is so obvious that it cannot be ignored.

Because the study was based on data from no direct observations, experts are unable to say exactly how the excess sodium affected their health. Will be.

Experts in the study, published in the latest issue of the European Heart Journal, have called for further study.

However, he also warned that pharmaceutical companies would not write anything on the label about the amount of sodium in their products.

Experts urge both pharmaceutical companies and physicians to inform patients about the presence and extent of sodium in medicines as this is an important aspect that should not be overlooked in the light of current information.


iOS 15.3.1 available for download. Don’t wait and update

IPhone users can now install the stable iOS 15.3.1 release. This is an urgent update that fixes the 0-day vulnerability giving unauthorized access to the phone. Installation requires less than 900 MB of data to be downloaded.

Apple has released an iOS and iPadOS update, which is crucial for security. Version 15.3.1 may come as a surprise (release 15.4 is already available in a trial version), but don’t hesitate to install it. The update includes a patch for the 0-day vulnerability marked as CVE-2022-22620 , which allows you to get to the data on the device.

According to Kaspersky , it is about incorrect management of dynamic memory in applications, which in practice leads to unauthorized access to data. The attack can be carried out from the level of a crafted website and ultimately lead to the execution of arbitrary code on an unpatched version of iOS. That is why the installation of the revised version of the system is so important.

The vulnerability was classified as Use-After-Free , which means unauthorized access to the theoretically freed memory by other applications. The idea is to use unremoved pointers that allow hackers to access data in memory that should not, by definition, be reachable, especially from other programs.

Infinix Hot 10S

There is a fierce competition among the smartphone companies to launch smartphones in the budget range segment. We recently saw 5 different variants of Redmi 9 series,  6 variants of Realme C series. There prices are within 10 thousand rupees.

Infinix Hot 10S is also the new smartphone in this range.  Specifications of Infinix smartphones tell that the company is offering premium devices in budget range. But it also has some shortcomings, which can be improved. I have been using Infinix smartphones for a long time and found devices impressive and robust. I use all kinds of apps. Such as my exchange emails, streaming services and other utilities. 

Built quality and design

The Hot 10S is made entirely of plastic and you will get to see the unique diamond cut flow pattern design used on the back panel. The company has sent Morandi Blue color variant to us, which may not be said to be very attractive in appearance, but definitely okay. The phone weighs 200 grams feels heavy to hold as it is also 9mm wide. 

Both the power button and volume rocker have been placed on the right hand so that they can be used easily. The fingerprint scanner is at the back. It has dedicated slots for a micro SD card and dual 4G SIM card slots. The worst thing about this smartphone is that it still offers the same old-fashioned micro USB charging port, which comes with a basic 10W charger. Whereas, now smartphones are being launched in the market with fast charging and Type-C. The biggest thing about this smartphone is that you get not one but two LED flashes on the front panel.

Performance

The biggest identity of any smartphone is its performance and if a smartphone coming under 10 thousand rupees comes with tremendous performance, then the matter is different.

In Infinix Hot 10S comes with  4GB and 6GB of RAM, which includes 64GB of internal storage. This smartphone has the latest Mediatek Helio G85 processor, which is an upgraded version of the G70 itself. This means you will get  a strong processor in this budget smartphone. The display with a refresh rate of 90Hz is impressive and seems quite fast. You can move between application smoothly. Normal smartphone users use basic applications. 

The impressive specifications of this smartphone offers good gaming experience to gamers. 

Game lovers have played Call of duty for hours and did not experience any problem. 

In Hot 10S comes with a 6.82-inch LCD display which offers 720 pixels resolution and 440 nits brightness. You will not experience any problem in brightness levels even outside the house in strong sunlight. I watched some series on OTT platform in which I didn’t get very good experience, but it doesn’t disappoint you either. Apart from this, this phone comes with Widevine L3 certification, so you have to face some problems in watching Netflix or Prime Video, that is, the pixels of the video content start bursting because this smartphone is not able to stream in full 720 pixels. although, If you pay attention to other smartphones in this segment, then you will see the same problem in them. Apart from this, the performance of the speakers will also be fine. The single speaker below doesn’t have bass, so you’ll need a Bluetooth headphone or earphones with a 3.5mm jack for better audio.

Software

In Infinix Hot 10s comes Android 11 as well as XOS 7.6 software. Due to this, now its UI looks very clean and good. Not only this, it also does not get to see a dozen pre-installed games like before, which we are often seeing in other Infinix phones. However, there are still some pre-installed apps in it, which are from Infinix and you cannot uninstall them. However, these apps don’t bother you that much. In this my favorite feature was XOS which is ‘Thunderback’. As fancy as its name is, it is also useful. In this case, you can open the floating window automatically by double tapping on the fingerprint sensor. In this, its UI looks very nice and easy. All these popular apps work with YouTube, Instagram, Whatsapp and Chrome so that is great.

Battery is good then charging is bad

The Hot 10S packs a 6,000 mAh battery which has become a standard in almost all smartphones in this segment. But yes, if seen, you get a strong battery in it. You can easily use it for two days. At the same time, after a single charge, you can watch videos or play games in it for 8 hours continuously. Overall, after charging once, even if you do many things in your phone, it will run smoothly for a day. As mentioned earlier, there is a 10W charger, so it takes up to 4 hours to charge from 0 to 100%. That is, it is one of those smartphones that you charge at night and use it throughout the day. If the company had given a little fast charging with C-type port in it, it would have been a great smartphone.

How strong is the camera?

The Hot 10S sports a triple rear camera, but you seem to be using only one camera and it’s 48 MP sensor, which takes pixel-bind photos by default of 12 MP. There is also a depth sensor which is still being measured and the third camera is with AI lens. Big scientists of the world are also trying to find out that what does this work? But to be honest, I find this to be a gimmick that Infinix is ​​using to fool people. It doesn’t have any ultrawide lens. It also has a selfie camera which is of 8MP. There is a dedicated LED flash for selfie. The low-light photography of both the front and rear cameras is best in class. The rear camera can do a little better, especially when you are clicking and cropping photos in a wide range.


Talking about the color science of Infinix, a lot of improvement is needed here too, because mostly you will not find natural colors in it and you also get to see dull human skin tone. Portrait mode also doesn’t work so well. Overall, the Hot 10s is not a smartphone with a better camera performance in this segment.


The price of 4GB / 64GB storage variant of Infinix Hot 10S is INR9,999 and to be honest, if you are buying this smartphone in terms of camera or watching videos then do not buy at all. But yes, if you are buying a cheap gaming smartphone and want a little better performance then you can buy it. You also get good battery backup in this. In this smartphone, you definitely get the benefit of Social Turbo features with XOS.
