Group B strep are a common type of bacteria that love the warm, airless cavities in our body. But not everybody harbors these typically harmless organisms. And not everybody is safe from their effects.

Chemotherapy may worsen quality of life for some cancer patients who are nearing death, a new study finds. And an ASCO expert panel has said the use of chemotherapy in cases where there is no proven benefit for patients is "the most widespread, wasteful and unnecessary practice in oncology," according to a journal news release.

Does your pulse seem irregular or does your heart do "flip-flops" every now and then? Perhaps you can feel your heart racing or fluttering for no apparent reason. If these symptoms sound familiar, you may have atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation causes an irregular and rapid heart beat, which increases your risk of blood clots, stroke, and other heart related problems.

In 1995, tramadol was first approved by the FDA as a narcotic pain reliever thought to be associated with a lower risk of drug abuse. However, in 2012 it was reported that 3.2 million people in the U.S. aged 12 or older had abused tramadol. Emergency department visits due to tramadol abuse were also on the rise.

Ahhhhh.... all set for another week at the office? How sedentary is that looking for you? Does your day involve long periods of time at your desk interspersed with a few minutes getting coffee? For the sake of your future health, add up the time you spend sitting. More than six hours? Then you've just chopped years off your life expectancy. #sitting   #desk   #StandUpDesk   #LifeExpectancy  ‬

Herpes is a sexually transmitted virus that primarily infects the mouth and the genitals. It is transmitted by bodily fluids – penetration isn’t required for transmission, oral-oral or oral-genital contact will suffice.
I WAS ONCE HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS patient, I have HSVI genitally and I'm one of the rare cases where I was infected by sexual contact. The person who infected me was unaware that he had it, and he tested negative on a blood test (he probably got it from his mother at birth and never had an outbreak in his life).I'm sure I have HSVI (they did a culture of the fluid from the sores i had during my initial outbreak). So it is possible to contract HSVI by asymptomatic asexual contact, so please people talk about this and prevent anyone else from getting it, I'm kind of going through something. Four years ago my love and I both had an OB and when I got the blood work done it came back negative. We were happy in the relationship so I learned to accept it and never really bothered to get tested again. Now, that we broke up I decided to get tested again. I came back negative for both HSV-1 and HSV-2 (got the news!) and have not had an OB since the initial one four years ago. My X on the other hand has had a few small outbreaks and nver came back positive for HSV-1. Only the help of Dr Odai where able to help me ou with is Root and Herbs, if you are having any type of this disease or infection kindly email doctor Odia for cure:(drodiaherbalistcenter@gmail.com)
