'eNose' that sniffs out prostate cancer shows promise

New research from Finland suggests in the not-too-distant future we may be making rapid, early diagnoses of prostate cancer using a noninvasive electronic nose that sniffs a urine sample. Electronic noses or 'eNoses' that analyze complex mixtures of gas molecules are already used in food and agriculture quality control, and in military applications.

What does your liver do?

What doesn't your liver do? Besides taking toxins out of your blood, your liver has about 500 jobs, including making bile -- a liquid that helps you digest food. Your liver takes what you eat and drink and turns it into energy and nutrients; it helps your body use carbs, for example. It also plays a role in helping your blood clot.

What Is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Deep vein thrombosis refers to a blood clot that develops inside a larger vein - usually deep within the lower leg or thigh. The danger is that part of the clot can break off and travel through the bloodstream, where it can lodge in the lungs causing a blockage in blood flow, organ damage, and death.

Unfortunately, DVT often goes unnoticed. About half of people with DVT have no warning signs. Symptoms may include:
Redness
Swelling
Tenderness or pain
These happen in the area of the blood clot, which is usually the leg

When Is a Mole a Problem?

A mole (nevus) is a benign growth of melanocytes, cells that gives skin its color. Although very few moles become cancer, abnormal or atypical moles can develop into melanoma over time. "Normal" moles can appear flat or raised or may begin flat and become raised over time. The surface is typically smooth.

Moles that may have changed into skin cancer are often irregularly shaped, contain many colors, and are larger than the size of a pencil eraser. Most moles develop in youth or young adulthood. It's unusual to acquire a mole in the adult years.

Chemical exposure: the impact on brain development

Harmful chemicals can be absorbed into our bodies through our skin, or we can ingest them through air, food and drinks. Around 3,000 chemicals are in products that we come into contact with every day, including clothing, carpets, toys, cleaning products and cosmetics. But is it safe to be so frequently exposed to these chemicals?

According to a Harvard study, some toxic chemicals can interfere with the natural function of genes, proteins and other small molecules in the brain. This interference can lead to the onset of neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cerebral palsy and dyslexia.

Sleep On Your Back

Sleeping in certain positions night after night leads to "sleep lines" -- wrinkles that become etched into the top layers of skin and don't fade once you're up.

Sleeping on your side leads to wrinkles on cheeks and chin, while sleeping face down gives you a furrowed brow. To cut down on new wrinkles, sleep on your back.
