    This Woman Is Embracing Her Birthmarks In The Most Beautiful Way

    April 25th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Lauren Strapagiel

    But the biggest impact came when she got in touch with Underneath We Are Women, a photography project showcasing women with all kinds of bodies.

    Lorena Bolaños was born with a large congenital nevus, a type of mole, and faced her fears in a recent photo shoot for a project showcasing women with all kinds of bodies.

    When Lorena Bolaños was a child, a woman at a skating rink asked the staff to have her removed because she thought her birthmark was an illness that could make people sick.

    It wasn’t the first or last time someone would make Bolaños, now 24, feel less than beautiful.

    Bolaños was born with a large congenital nevus, which is a mole that covers a large portion of the body. She also has other, smaller moles. Other than needing protection from the sun, the marks on her body don’t cause any physical problems, but it made her feel different from other kids while growing up. Classmates would laugh at her, or call her a chocolate chip cookie.

    “As I didn’t look as the other kids, as my legs looked different, with a lot of marks, that I didn’t like, the main problem was that I didn’t feel beauty and I felt very uncomfortable when people looked …read more

    This Man Had The World’s First Penis And Scrotum Transplant

    April 25th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    The patient, a US veteran who was injured by a bomb in Afghanistan, underwent the 14-hour transplant procedure on March 26.

    Devon Stuart for Johns Hopkins Medicine

    There have been three other penis transplants worldwide, said Dr. Richard Redett, professor of plastic reconstructive surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. But this was the first one to use such an extensive amount of tissue, including the scrotum.

    “The big difference with this one is that it involves the abdominal wall or at least part of the abdominal wall, the entire penis, and the scrotum,” Redett, the clinical director of the genitourinary transplant program at Johns Hopkins, told BuzzFeed News.

    There are other procedures in which surgeons can create a penis using a patient’s own tissue and a prosthetic device to achieve erections, but this patient had so much tissue loss that those procedures weren’t an option.

    The doctors have not revealed the patient’s identity, but said that his extensive injuries were caused by an improvised explosive device while he was serving in Afghanistan. These types of injuries can be devastating, Redett said.

    “They get characteristic blast patterns where they lose much of the soft tissue …read more

    The FDA Is Cracking Down On JUUL And Other Popular E-Cigarettes

    April 25th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    The US Food and Drug Administration took action this week against sites and stores who are selling e-cigarettes like JUUL to young people, including Ebay.

    For the first time, the Food and Drug Administration is taking aim at people who make e-cigarettes that are hugely popular with teens.

    The US Food and Drug Administration took action this week against sites and stores who are selling e-cigarettes like JUUL to young people, including Ebay.

    Arturo Torres

    JUUL and other e-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that turn nicotine-containing liquid into vapor that can be inhaled.

    A JUUL could be mistaken for a USB flash drive and has exploded in popularity with teens and young adults. Other brands of e-cigarettes are called myblu, KandyPens, and Suorin.

    The products can deliver as much nicotine as a cigarette but without as many carcinogens and toxins as traditional cigarettes. The health impact of the other chemicals found in the vapor is still unclear. They are often marketed as an alternative for adult cigarette smokers, although the flavors — creme brulee, fruit medley, mango, and many others — often appeal to young people who have never smoked cigarettes. And although it’s illegal to sell to minors, e-cigarettes can be easy to buy just about anywhere, including on the internet.

    In fact the FDA tried to buy them in outlets around …read more

    These Women Scientists Refuse To Stop Taking Selfies After Being Called Out In A Prestigious Journal

    April 23rd, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Lauren Strapagiel

    Science Sam / Via instagram.com

    A debate is playing out in a prestigious science publication about whether sharing selfies is hurting women scientists.

    It started last month with an op-ed published in Science titled, “Instagram won’t solve inequality,” in which graduate student Meghan Wright expressed a “bitterness” in seeing how her fellow women scientists use the platform. Their posts include “pretty selfies, fun videos, and microscope images captioned with accessible language and cute emojis,” Wright wrote.

    “Although I am annoyed that the majority of the posts seem to celebrate a very narrow representation of femininity, my real bitterness comes from the systemic challenges that these posts are working to address, and from seeing so many young female scientists compelled to turn to their personal social media pages to try to correct the system’s failures,” Wright wrote. (She declined to comment for this story.)

    “Time spent on Instagram is time away from research, and this affects women in science more than men,” Wright wrote. “That’s unfair. Let’s not celebrate that.”

    In particular, Wright named Science Sam, the Instagram account run by University of Toronto graduate student Samantha Yammine, who studies stem cells in the brain. She’s a big name …read more

    Campbell was running the London Marathon when he collapsed on the 22.5-mile mark and, despite immediate medical treatment, died later in the hospital.

    Campbell was running in memory of his father, who died in 2016. The charity he selected was the Brathay Trust, which aims to improve the lives of children, young people, and families by encouraging positive engagement with communities.

    “Matt became involved with Brathay Trust through his father Martin, who was a key member of the team delivering the Brathay 10in10 (10 marathons in 10 days) until his untimely death in the summer of 2016,” according to a statement from the charity.

    This is Campbell’s fundraising page for Brathay Trust.

    Campbell ran his first marathon in 2016, the Asics Windermere Marathon, with his brother and his father. And he ran it again in 2017 with a time of 3 hours and three …read more

    This Man’s Eyes Were Permanently Stained Blue After Taking An Antibiotic

    April 21st, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    This 70-year-old man took minocycline for many years and ended up with a permanent blue stain in his eyes.

    Minocycline is an antibiotic used to treat acne and inflammation, and one man who took it for 15 years to treat arthritis ended up with a permanent blue stain in the whites of his eyes.

    This 70-year-old man took minocycline for many years and ended up with a permanent blue stain in his eyes.

    The New England Journal of Medicine©2018.

    After taking minocycline to treat inflammatory arthritis for 15 years, the whites of the man’s eyes began to turn a bluish shade, as did his ears.

    Dr. Rony Sayegh and his colleague at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio published the details in a case report this week in The New England Journal of Medicine.

    Minocycline is known to stain the skin, ears, fingernails, teeth, gums, and scar tissue, the authors note. The color is caused by the accumulation of iron and melanin, the pigment in skin, particularly in parts of the body exposed to sun.

    The man’s rheumatologist referred him to an eye doctor, who recommended that he stop taking the drug. He did, according to the report, but even a year later the bluish color remained.

    Bread Might Be The Saltiest Part Of Your Diet, According To A New Study

    April 21st, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    When you think of salty foods, bread might not come to mind. But a new study shows that it may be a bigger contributor to sodium in your diet than you think.

    Over a third of breads have too much salt, according to a new study. Here’s what that could mean for your health.

    Even though it doesn’t taste that salty, bread might be delivering more sodium than you think — but it all depends on which kind you eat and how much, according to a new study.

    Researchers analyzed 2,000 different breads (including white, wholemeal, mixed grain, and flatbreads) sold in 32 countries around the world and found some shockingly high numbers and wide variation in the salt and sodium levels in breads. The study was conducted by the World Action on Salt & Health (WASH) at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine of Queen Mary University of London.

    Overall, a third of breads surveyed had more salt than UK’s maximum recommended amount for bread.

    In the US, the upper daily limit for sodium is 2300 mg, and it’s ideal to eat no more than 1500 …read more

    The outbreak widened this week, and officials are now warning US consumers to stay away from romaine lettuce — specifically chopped, store-bought romaine lettuce purchased either on its own or in a salad mix — until the outbreak is under control.

    So far 53 people have gotten sick, including 31 people who were hospitalized, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported Wednesday.

    There have been no deaths yet, but in the past week alone, 18 new cases and nine more hospitalizations have been reported, including two people who developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a dangerous type of kidney failure.

    Escherichia coli (E. coli) are bacteria commonly found in the digestive tract of people and animals. These germs can make you sick if they contaminate food, but some — such as E. coli O157:H7, the strain in this outbreak …read more

    Kitchen Cabinets Can Release Chemicals Called PCBs, And Here’s Why That’s Not So Great

    April 20th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    The sealant used on kitchen cabinets can release PCBs, according to a new study.

    PCBs are carcinogens, but it’s not clear if the amount found in kitchen cabinets is harmful.

    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are chemicals that were once used in the manufacture of insulation, electrical equipment, and other items but are no longer used because they are carcinogens. They were banned in the 1970s, and they tend to be found in Superfund sites, or those areas identified by the Environment Protection Agency as contaminated with hazardous waste.

    In an analysis published this week in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, University of Iowa researchers tested 16 homes and found that three types of PCBs (there are more than 200 in existence) were elevated in some of the homes. After testing stoves, floors, walls, and cabinets, they determined that kitchen cabinets in homes built or remodeled in the last five years were a problem, but not those in older homes.

    “We only noticed it in new or newly installed kitchen cabinets so probably —although we don’t really know for sure — over time it decreases,” senior study author Keri Hornbuckle, …read more
