 Research shows that nearly 90 percent of women claimed to have pretended to reach orgasm during intercourse or while performing oral sex.
Keeping feelings of the couple was not the only reason. Many women who do so for fear of intimacy with their partner or feeling anxious about themselves.
Not a few are also women who pretend to be reaching a climax with the reason they are uncomfortable with the sexual organ function or because they want to immediately end the ongoing sexual relationship....

What You Need to Know about Vaginal Infections

Posted by hidup sehat On Monday, November 14, 2011 2 comments


Having a vaginal infection is very common among women but not everyone who gets it is comfortable enough to discuss it or have it checked by a doctor. Up to about a few years back, this subject cannot even be easily talked about on TV. However, with the recent increase of diseases concerning women, infomercials are now bold enough to relay information about the topic and other related issues. Television commercials nowadays also include products for vaginal infections like vaginal creams.
The common symptoms of an infection in the vagina is itching and burning of the affected area. This is normally caused by a sudden change of the female organ’s normal pH count brought about by sex, use of douches, use of contraceptives like IUDs, and other foreign objects that is goes inside the vagina such as spermicidal creams and gels, tampons and even stray feces.
Antibiotics are also considered as a major cause. When you take antibiotics for a certain bacterial infection somewhere else in your body, they may also attack the good bacteria in your vagina that maintains a healthy environment.
Other conditions that can influence the condition are the following: pregnancy, diabetes, eating too much sweets and sugary foods, hormonal changes during post-menopausal stage, oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy. Bacterial infections of the female organ may also be sexually transmitted.

The number 1 killer in the United States and how you can beat it

Posted by hidup sehat On 0 comments

Do you know what the number one killer in much of the developed world and especially the United States is? The answer is heart disease. With all the junk food that is available nowadays heart disease has turned in to the biggest killer today. So how can we beat this serial killer and add a few more years to our lives you ask? The answer is simple. We just need to eat healthier and the risk or contracting any sort of heart problem is greatly reduced. In fact you can add about 15 years to your life by just changing a few things in your diet.

The answer is really eating more raw foods and mostly vegetable foods. Raw vegetable foods contain zero cholestrol which is what causes heart disease in the first place.The reason people in the past sought to cook food so much is that it was often dirty and it would make us sick if we tried to consume it as it was. In African villages, people that do not have running water must go to the rivers and get it from there. Of course it is not clean so what do they do? They boil it first to kill the germs and then let it cool and then they will drink it. Nowadays the food we get from the stores is basically edible when we get it. We also wash the food at home so it is very safe for us to consume already. That means we are not taking any risks if we go raw with out diets, or at least replace some of our unhealthy eating habits with raw food.

Some people might be asking what is the main difference between raw and cooked food? Well the thing is when food is being cooked, the temperatures get so high that most of the nutrients present in the food will be destroyed! That means that we are not getting in as many nutrients as we would be led to believe. Many diseases that are prevalent today come about because people do not get as many nutrients as they should from the food they are eating.

woow ... !! Payout over Scunthorpe steel worker's asbestos death

Posted by hidup sehat On Sunday, November 13, 2011 0 comments


The family of a Scunthorpe man who died after being exposed to asbestos while working at the town's steelworks has been awarded £48,000 in compensation.
Reg Grimshaw died last year, aged 88, from the lung disease mesothelioma.
He spent his entire working life at the plant, which was run by a number of companies over the years, including the nationalised British Steel Corporation.
Current owners Tata Steel said the claim was from a "historic exposure to a risk".
Malignant mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer which affects the thin membrane that lines the chest and abdomen. About 2,400 people are diagnosed with the condition in the UK each year.
According to Cancer Research UK, up to 80% of cases of malignant mesothelioma are caused by exposure to asbestos fibres.

Skin transformed for cancer fight

Posted by hidup sehat On Friday, November 11, 2011 2 comments

Scientists have opened up the possibility of one day using cancer patients' own skin to fight their tumours.
Oxford University researchers transformed skin cells into immune cells, which could be used to trigger a hunt for cancer.
It was achieved only in the laboratory, not in people, meaning any therapy is a long way off.
However, the researchers believe it will be possible.
Harnessing the power of the immune system is a field being pursued by cancer researchers, such as in the search for cancer vaccines.
The conductor
This study, published in the journal Gene Therapy, was focused on dendritic cells, which organise part of the immune response.
By showing identifying markers - or antigens - they tell the immune system what to attack. If they display cancer markers, cancerous cells will become the target.
Dr Paul Fairchild, from the Oxford Stem Cell Institute, said trials into dendritic cells, harvested from a patient's blood, had taken place before, but they fired up only part of the immune system.
His team used advances in stem cell technology to create new dendritic cells from a patient's skin. These were primed to trigger an attack on melanomas using a marker, Melan A, which is unique to the cancer.
Experiments in the laboratory showed these dendritic cells were able to activate both immune cells which produce antibodies and those which kill other cells.
Dr Fairchild said: "The patient would in effect be treated with their own immune cells to prime an attack on their tumour."
He acknowledges that any therapy is a distant prospect. The cost and a safe method of producing stem cells are two of the barriers.
Even then he pictures a treatment working alongside, rather than replacing, other therapies: "It is a long and arduous process compared with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It's extremely labour intensive."
Dr Caetano Reis e Sousa, a Cancer Research UK immunology expert, said: "By showing that normal body cells can be reprogrammed to become a sub-type of dendritic cells with superior activity, this research builds on previous work by Cancer Research UK scientists using blood stem cells as starting material.
"The next challenge is to confirm that these laboratory-generated cells will be suitable for immunotherapy-based cancer-treatments used in the clinic."

Fibre and whole grains 'reduce bowel cancer risk'

Posted by hidup sehat On 0 comments

Researchers from Imperial College London found that for every 10g a day increase in fibre intake, there was a 10% drop in the risk of bowel cancer.
But their analysis of 25 previous studies found that fruit and vegetable fibre did not reduce risk.
A cancer charity called for more detailed research on the quantity and type of fibre to eat.
Eating fibre and whole grains is known to help protect against cardiovascular disease, but experts say that any link with colorectal cancer is less clear because studies have not had consistent results.
"It is encouraging to know that simple changes to your diet and lifestyle could help protect you from the UK's second biggest cancer killer."
Yinka Ebo, senior health information officer at Cancer Research UK, said the review added weight to the evidence that fibre protects against bowel cancer.
"It shows that certain sources of fibre, such as cereal and whole grains, are particularly important.
"Eating plenty of fibre is just one of many things you can do to lower your risk of developing the disease, along with keeping a healthy weight, being physically active, cutting down on alcohol, red and processed meat, and not smoking."

HERBAL CANCER TREATMENT

Posted by hidup sehat On Thursday, November 10, 2011 0 comments


Many herbs (including astragalus, dong quai, echinacea, and Asian ginseng) supposedly "boost" the immune system and so shore up the body against future or existing cancer. Extremely small studies suggest that shiitake or maitake mushrooms, mistletoe, extracts of the Venus flytrap, and various botanical therapies used in traditional Chinese medicine may help treat certain forms of cancer. But until better evidence is in, we cannot completely rely on them. Ginger, and maybe some other herbs, may help relieve nausea that often accompanies conventional cancer therapies.

Iscador (Mistletoe Extract)
Mistletoe (Viscum album L.) is a semi-parasitic plant that lives with several tree species, including oak, pine, fir, elm and apple, and has been used since ancient times to treat a variety of human ailments. Extracts of mistletoe have been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory and to stimulate the immune system.

Only the European species of mistletoe is used in the treatment of cancer. Mistletoe preparations are used to stimulate the immune system and to kill cancer cells. It has been reported to reduce tumor size and improve the quality of life and survival of some cancer patients. Three components of mistletoe (lectins, alkaloids and viscotoxins) may be responsible for its biologic effects.

Mesothelioma Lawyers in San Diego

Posted by hidup sehat On Tuesday, November 8, 2011 0 comments

To understand how to choose a lawyer for this disease, you should first understand the basics of the disease. In the simplest sense, mesothelioma is a cancer of the protective layers of the body cavities, known as the mesothelium.
These tissues have different names depending on the organs they protect. You have probably heard of the peritoneum–this is the covering around the stomach and intestines. Other organs and cavities have their own membranes as well.
Mesothelioma is a cancer of these tissues. They often do not just affect the tissues–they affect the organs they surround and can spread elsewhere. This cancer is most often contracted by exposure to asbestos, a highly dangerous mineral often found in floors, ceilings, and some products.

mesothelioma treatment diagnosis

Posted by hidup sehat On Friday, November 4, 2011 0 comments

A diagnosis is always difficult, whether it is pleural mesothelioma or another variety. Because this is such an aggressive malignancy, patients and their families may have a difficult time addressing the issue of treatment. However, because options for mesothelioma patients are steadily increasing, the discussion of treatment with one’s primary oncologist, family members, and loved ones is important. Nearly all mesothelioma patients have treatment options-be they curative or palliative that can extend survival, alleviate pain, and increase quality of life.





Each mesothelioma case is considered individually and there is no singular prescribed roadmap for the management of malignant mesothelioma. What's best for each individual patient will depend on any number of factors. Diagnostic procedures such as x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and biopsies will be used to determine these factors and these tests will assist your primary care physician and/or oncologist in determining the best treatment for the individual and their particular circumstances.

What is Angina Pectoris?

Posted by hidup sehat On Thursday, November 3, 2011 1 comments
Angina Pectoris is a clinical syndrome characterized by intermittent (paroxysmal) chest pain caused by reversible myocardial ischemia. The pain is usually substernal or precordial radiating to the left shoulder and arm or to the jaw. It lasts for several minutes.
Angina Pectoris Types

Stable Angina: It occurs due to increased myocardial oxygen demand during exertion in a patient of narrow coronary arteries. It is relieved promptly by rest and nitroglycerine.
Variant Angina (Prinzmetal’s Angina): It occurs at rest and is not a result of increased myocardial demand. It is produced by the episodic reduction of the myocardial blood supply due to coronary artery spasm.
Unstable Angina: In this type of angina, frequency, severity and duration of episode are progressively increased, frequently occurring at rest.
Platelet aggregation (thrombus formation) and coronary. Artery spasm are considered to be the cause of such type of angina. Unstable angina may lead to myocardial infarction very rapidly.

What is Pathology? this Introduction to Pathology Disease

Posted by hidup sehat On 0 comments
The scientific study of disease is called pathology. It is the study of how the organs and tissues of a healthy body change to those of a sick person.
CLASSIFICATION
Pathology is classified in several ways; it may be divided in:

  • General and Special pathology OR
  • Clinical and anatomical pathology
General pathology
It is the study of the basic reactions of cells and tissues to abnormal stimuli that under lie all diseases i.e. it describes basic principles and mechanisms of disease production. For example: such basic principle may be inflammation.
Special pathology
It is the study of specific responses of specialized organs and tissues to more or less well-defined stimuli i.e. special pathology deals with disease of specific organs or systems of the body. For example: inflammation in lung or kidney.
DISEASE
Any deviation from or interruption of the normal structure or function of any part. Organ or system of the body that is manifested by a characteristic set of signs and symptoms is called disease.

the Symptoms of Left Heart Failure and Signs

Posted by hidup sehat On 0 comments
Left Heart Failure Symptoms are:

Dyspnea

A sense of breathlessness, initially on exertion then on rest also. The dyspnea is maximal when congestion of the lung is greatest as in exercise and lying flat.

Dyspnea on exertion

In early stage dyspnea is noticeable during physical activity and is called dysnea on exertion. It results from increased venous congestion during physical activity.

Orthopnea

Dyspnea on lying flat is called orthopnea. It results from increased amount of venous return to thorax from lower extremities when patient is in lying position. Heart is unable to pump all of this venous return that leads to lung congestion and dyspnea.

Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea

Dyspnea during sleep which awakens the patient with severe breathlessness, accompanied by a choking sensation and coughing is called paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea. It also results from increased venous congestion as the patient is lying on bed.
