Hospital Provides Masks for Women Too Shy to Get a Potentially Life-Saving Pap Smear Test

Posted By Staff

Date: May 11th, 2017

masksThe gynecology ward at the Nong Krot Hospital, in Thailand’s Kamphaeng Phet province, looked more like a masked ball hall a couple of days ago, as both patients and staff wore masks to conceal their faces.

The initiative was meant to make women more comfortable about getting a pap smear test.

Named after its inventor, Greek doctor Giorgios Papanikolaou, the pap smear is a medical test that can detect abnormal cells that have the potential to cause cervical cancer.

It involves collecting cells with a small brush from the cervix, a procedure that many Thai women apparently find so embarrassing that they would rather risk their lives to avoid.   More

Roger Logan, 57, had the non-cancerous growth removed on January 31 at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, where he will remain for another week or so before returning home.

The tumor probably started as an ingrown hair that became infected, swelled and developed its own blood supply, Logan’s surgeon, Dr. Vipul Dev, told a local newspaper.

Logan says he first noticed the growth about 15 years ago.  More

Top 5 Surprising Ways To Avoid Getting Sick

Posted By Staff

Date: January 25th, 2017

SICK1. Wash your washing machine
Sure you wash your clothes to kill germs, but when was the last time you washed your washing machine.
Bacteria and fungus can build up over time especially in the seals of front-loading washing machines.
Many manufactures offer a specialized cleaner, although two tablespoons of white vinegar will also do the trick. Just put the white vinegar where the detergent usually goes and run the clean cycle.
Most manufactures recommend you do this one a month.

2. Avoid alcohol
Too much alcohol can depress your immune system which make you more susceptible to colds.
Plus, if you’re already sick, some doctors say even a single drink can prolong a virus for several more days.  More

CORPSES ‘EXPLODING’ IN DECREPIT VENEZUELAN HOSPITALS

Posted By Staff

Date: October 20th, 2016

bloatedVenezuela - It was one of the more macabre stories to emerge out of socialist Venezuela — and served as a metaphor for the final days of the rotting regime.

In a hospital morgue, a bloated corpse exploded.

The morgue’s barely functioning cooling system was to blame – hardly a surprise in the oil-rich yet impoverished nation whose health-care system has collapsed under the socialist government.

Decomposing for two days in the tropical heat, the corpse finally exploded in a spray of toxic fluids and gasses.

The ghastly incident earlier this month necessitated the partial evacuation of the hospital, University Hospital Antonio Patricio de Alcalá, located in Cumaná — a city of 825,000 in eastern Venezuela.  More
