How Fasting Benefits Human Health
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic Calendar in which Quran was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon Him). Muslims from around the world observe fasting from dawn to dusk in this Holy month.
According to the commands of Allah Almighty, 30 days of fasting in the month of Ramadan are obligatory for every Muslim.
Scientific research has shown that fasting, ie abstaining from food and drink throughout the day, is very beneficial for human health.
Scientifically, in the state of fasting, a person abstains from any kind of food and water for about 20 hours, which causes a positive change in the human body.
1. Weight loss:
Scientifically, going hungry for about 16 hours a day is called intermittent fasting, which is useful for weight loss.
Similarly, losing weight in Ramadan is very easy and many people also lose weight during Ramadan.
2. Stable sugar levels:
During fasting, the human body produces less amount of glucose, which is why doctors advise diabetics to fast during Ramadan.
3. Reduces cancer symptoms:
Research has shown that when breaking the fast (Iftar) at a certain time, the body produces red blood cells, which helps fight anemia as well as cancer, as old cancerous cells are replaced by new ones.
In this regard, Yoshinori Ohsumi, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine, when asked about his discovery, said that he had found precautions to avoid cancer. Cancer is a rotten part of the body and In case of hunger, when the body gets less nutrition, the body starts eating this rotten part and this is how cancer ends.
According to Yoshinori, fasting 25 days a year is the best solution.
