I got to thinking about this the other day when the girl I was with went in to this store with me. We happened to pass by the part where they have a bunch of weight loss stuff and she stopped to look at what they had. Of course she has a slight weight problem which is very significant in her mind. She is one of those people who can not walk past a mirror without having anxiety about her weight. She was saying something about whether or not to buy hcg drops here and of course I told her that those were not real HCG drops. None of the stuff you can buy is really that, it is just something which is being marketed as it. You can not sell the real thing any more. It has not been legal for a good while. So when you see this stuff advertised it is either illegal, which is very unlikely, or it is not really hcg drops.
At any rate this place had a bunch of different things. It was stuff called raspberry ketone, there was this mango diet thing, which actually works I think (except that you do not
Sudoku puzzles can be brainteasers, but one man’s brain had an unusual response to solving the numerical grid puzzles: He developed seizures.
The 25-year-old German man didn’t always react this way to Sudoku, according to a new report of his case. His problems began after he was trapped in an avalanche during a ski trip. The young man, a physical education student, had been skiing with a friend in November 2008 when an avalanche occurred on the mountain.
The avalanche buried the man in the snow and knocked him unconscious, according to the case report. But he was fortunate to have been skiing with a buddy who was a paramedic, and his friend rescued him and started CPR immediately, said Dr. Berend Feddersen, a neurologist at the University of Munich in Germany, and the lead author of the case report published today (Oct. 19) in the journal JAMA Neurology.
The man suffered a ruptured spleen and hip fracture, Feddersen said. In addition, while he was buried under the snow, his body tissues and brain got too little oxygen, a condition known as hypoxia.
As a consequence of
Some infants carry the diarrhea-causing bacteria Clostridium difficile in their guts without any symptoms, but the bacteria may rapidly disappear when these infants switch from drinking breast milk to cow’s milk, a new study suggests.
The study included only one infant, and it isn’t clear whether the same thing always happens in other babies. But if the findings hold true in other studies, a better understanding of exactly how C. difficile suddenly disappears from the gut of young children could potentially lead to new treatments for the illness in adults, the researchers said.
Compared to adults, “There are [bacteria] strains that are lacking,” in the infant gut early on that become more abundant when infants switch to cow’s milk, said study co-author Manli Davis, a researcher at Techlab, a company that develops diagnostic tests for gut diseases.
Although it isn’t clear why C. diff disappears just as these other bacteria come on the scene, it could be that these other bacteria fight against C. diff, and so they might be candidates for a probiotic treatment for people with C. diff, Davis said. [Probiotics’ Future: 3 Promising Research Areas]
There is no amount of alcohol that is safe to drink during any trimester of pregnancy, advises a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
And all forms of alcohol — including beer, wine and liquor — pose a similar risk to the developing fetus, according to the report from the nation’s largest group of pediatricians.
Although studies suggest that most women cut out alcohol completely when they are expecting, a small percentage of mothers-to-be admit that they continue to consume alcohol, and an even smaller amount say they binge drink, the researchers in the report said.
Women who binge drink when they are not pregnant may be more likely to consume alcohol during pregnancy, the researchers noted in their report published online today (Oct. 19) in the journal Pediatrics.
One of the reasons for releasing the report, titled “Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders,” is because somerecent research has been interpreted as suggesting that lower levels of alcohol use might be safe during pregnancy, said Dr. Janet F. Williams, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and one of
Pap smears are an excellent tool in the fight against cervical cancer. Most young women will be aware of the importance of having regular checks. However, many have a dread of getting the smear done, even if they have had it done before.
The reality is that for the majority of people the smear is a painless procedure, and many of the people who dread it really feel more vulnerable than afraid. The key to dealing with this is to develop a more positive mental attitude to the procedure by understanding what happens and why pap smears are necessary.
What happens during the smear?
A doctor or nurse will use a device called a speculum to widen the vaginal opening after first applying a lubricant. A small brush is inserted. It is used to gather cells from the wall of the cervix. Many women dislike the brushing sensation. The entire process takes just a few minutes. The procedure is almost always painless. However, if a woman feels tense or nervous before or during the process, she can feel more uncomfortable.
