    This Man Is The First Person To Successfully Undergo Two Face Transplants

    April 18th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    Jérôme Hamon, a 43-year-old from France, has become the first person in the world to successfully receive two face transplants.

    Jérôme Hamon’s immune system rejected his first face transplant, and it was removed in 2017. But this January, surgeons were able to perform a second transplant, making medical history.

    A team of surgeons in France made medical history in January when they successfully performed a second face transplant on a man whose immune system rejected his first face transplant. The surgery was led by Dr. Laurent Lantieri of the Georges Pompidou Hospital AP-HP in Paris.

    Hamon, now three months into his recovery, recently went on his first outing since the surgery and is expected to be discharged soon, according to a press release from the hospital.

    Face transplant surgery involves the full or partial transplantation of facial tissue from a deceased donor to a person with a severe facial deformity or injury that can’t be fixed with conventional plastic surgeries.

    Hamon had his first face transplant in 2010 to treat neurofibromatosis, a condition that caused tumors to grow on his face.

    A Flesh-Eating Germ Is Causing An Ulcer Epidemic In Australia And Scientists Don’t Know Why

    April 18th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    Cases of Buruli ulcer were once considered rare in Australia, but now they're happening at epidemic levels.

    A Buruli ulcer often starts as a painless bump — but within months, it can destroy muscles, tendons, and even bone.

    Cases of Buruli ulcer were once considered rare in Australia, but now they’re happening at epidemic levels.

    In the last two years, there has been an explosion of cases in the southeastern state of Victoria. In 2017, there were over 250 cases of the flesh-eating disease, which was a 51% increase from the year before. In 2016 there were 182 cases, which was also higher-than-normal.

    The recent spike in cases is a “rapidly worsening epidemic” that requires “urgent scientific response,” according to an article published in the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA) on Monday. The authors of the article did not respond for comment.

    The Buruli ulcer (pictured above, in its early stages) is a chronic infection that slowly leads to erosion of the flesh if it’s not treated. It is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium ulcerans, which belongs to the same family of germs that cause tuberculosis and Hansen’s disease (also known as leprosy), according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

    The condition was first observed in the 1940s so it has been around …read more

    The FDA Just Approved Contact Lenses That Darken In The Sun And No, You Won’t Look Like A Demon

    April 17th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    Would you ever try contact lenses that automatically get darker when exposed to sunlight?

    For the first time the Food and Drug Administration has approved contact lenses that darken in response to sunlight. Here’s what you need to know.

    Would you ever try contact lenses that automatically get darker when exposed to sunlight?

    The Food and Drug Administration just approved contact lenses that contain a “photochromic additive,” which gets slightly darker when you are out in the sun, and then becomes clear again.

    The contact lenses are similar to “transitions” glasses that get darker in strong sunlight but fade back to clear when inside. Those type of glasses, which rely on photochromic technology, have been around since the1990s.

    “This contact lens is the first of its kind to incorporate the same technology that is used in eyeglasses that automatically darken in the sun,” said Malvina Eydelman, director of the Division of Ophthalmic, and Ear, Nose and Throat Devices at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, in a statement.

    The approval was based in part on a clinical trial of 24 people, which showed that the contacts didn’t interfere with driving either at night or during the day. “The results of the …read more

    More Than 200 Million Eggs Have Been Recalled Due To Potential Salmonella Contamination

    April 16th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    More than 200 million eggs (yes, million) have been recalled due to potential contamination with salmonella bacteria.

    The eggs, traced to a farm in North Carolina, have sickened about two dozen people so far.

    How do you like your eggs? Probably without disease-causing bacteria. Although they might be considered America’s favorite breakfast food, millions of eggs that were sold in nine states are now being recalled due to a recent salmonella outbreak.

    On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, has voluntarily recalled 206 million eggs that could be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, a type of bacteria that can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness. At least 22 people have gotten sick so far, according to the FDA.

    A Rose Acre farm in Hyde County, North Carolina with 3 million laying hens, which produces 2.3 million eggs every day, is the likely source of the outbreak. But the potentially contaminated eggs have been distributed to retailers and restaurants in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

    In general, salmonella …read more

    In 1898, Marie Curie and her husband Pierre discovered the element radium and earned two Nobel Prizes. But in 1934, Marie died from radiation exposure. The chemist's death was just one stop on radium's trail of destruction.

    The factory girls were told the radium they were ingesting was safe, but it turned out to be their demise.

    This Vagina Tribute By Janelle Monáe Is The Self-Love Anthem We Really Need

    April 13th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    In the video, Monáe and her backup dancers appear wearing frilly, voluminous, pink pants that look exactly like... you guessed it: vulvas!

    The new video for “PYNK” has vulva pants and now we want a pair, too.

    On Tuesday, musician and literal goddess Janelle Monáe dropped the video for her new single “PYNK” and it’s taking the internet, and world, by storm.

    The single, featuring electro-pop artist Grimes, is part of Monáe’s new album “Dirty Computer,” which will be released on April 27. If you haven’t listened to it yet, put your headphones on and press play. The snappy, Prince-esque melody is definitely the new song of summer.

    “Pynk, like the lips around you… maybe / Pynk, like the skin that’s under… baby / Pynk, where it’s deepest inside… crazy / Pynk beyond forest and thighs,” Monáe sings.

    The rose-colored video is full of dreamy, super-feminine visuals and unabashed tributes to female anatomy, queerness, and sexual liberation. Monáe is honest and unashamed, and people are loving the whole song’s vibe.

    In the original description of the video on YouTube, Monáe wrote: “”PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and pussy power! PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest …read more

    This Mom Saw Her Baby Being Born During A C-Section And Honestly, It’s Pretty Cool

    April 13th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    Allison and Brent live in Madison, Alabama, and they had a baby boy via caesarean section on March 29.

    Clear surgical drapes are part of a trend towards “family-centered caesarean sections” — sometimes called “gentle caesareans” — so that the experience is less like surgery and more like a vaginal birth.

    Allison and Brent live in Madison, Alabama, and they had a baby boy via caesarean section on March 29.

    Tracy Abney

    The couple had their first baby, a girl, three years ago. At the time, Allison delivered vaginally and didn’t use pain-relieving medication, which overall turned out to be a pretty good experience for Allison. She had hoped to have the same kind of delivery for her second pregnancy, a boy.

    However, at her 20-week ultrasound, Allison found out she had placenta previa, a condition where the placenta is covering the cervix, which makes it risky to deliver vaginally due to the risk of bleeding or rupture of the placenta.

    Although there was about an 80% chance that the placenta would move out of the way as the pregnancy progressed, that didn’t happen.

    “Once we found out that it was not moving at all, that it was completely covering my cervix, we were like okay well let’s schedule a C-section and see what we …read more

    This Woman’s Apple Watch Helped Detect Her Severe Thyroid Problem

    April 12th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Caroline Kee

    A 25-year-old from Scranton, Kansas, discovered she had a severe thyroid issue after her Apple Watch detected an unusually rapid heartbeat.

    Heather Hendershot had no symptoms and felt fine — but her Apple Watch indicated that she might have a health problem.

    Heather Hendershot was relaxing at home and watching television with her husband last Saturday night when her new Apple Watch began to beep. The device had detected that she had a resting heart rate of 120 beats per minute, which is abnormally high for a young adult resting on the couch. The “normal” resting heart rate range for adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute.

    After the first alarm, the watch began beeping every 10 minutes with the rapid heartbeat warning. But Hendershot felt fine. Thinking the watch was wrong, she and her husband decided to check her heart rate manually, and they found the watch was correct. That night, Hendershot’s heart rate remained abnormally high and at one point reached 160 beats per minute.

    The following afternoon, she decided to visit an urgent care clinic. “I thought I might be sick and …read more

    “One day at a time.”

    Warning: This post has detailed descriptions of living with addiction.

    “It’s been two and a half years since I stopped using meth. What’s kept me sober is knowing that if I do everything I can to the best of my abilities, I will end up where I need to be. I’ve worked my way up to a manager position at a retail store, bought my first car, reestablished broken relationships, and even though life can be hard even today, I love myself and what I’ve accomplished.”

    “I’m just leaving a rehab facility. I graduated today after using drugs for seven years! The greatest lesson I’ve learned is that you have to forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for the guilt you carry for hurting your family and friends. Forgive yourself of the guilt you carry for hurting yourself. Once you forgive and let go, you can start to heal.” —janined400b5fa8b

    April 11th, 2018 by Our Webmaster

    By Theresa Tamkins

    In March, people in Chicago and central Illinois started getting sick with severe bleeding of the mouth, nose, eyes, lungs, and other body areas.

    Three people have been arrested for allegedly selling synthetic cannabinoids, or “fake weed,” laced with rat poison.

    The Illinois Department of Health reported Wednesday that the number of cases have now risen to 118, including three deaths. “While it is still an increase, it’s on a smaller scale,” said Melaney Arnold, a spokesperson for the Illinois Department of Health in Springfield, Illinois.

    The deaths included two men in their 20s and one man in his 40s; two were in central Illinois and one in the Chicago area.

    The cases have been linked to the use of synthetic cannabinoids, or “fake weed,” contaminated with brodifacoum, a rat poison.

    Synthetic cannabinoids are illegal but often sold in convenience stores, smoke shops, gas stations, and online with names like K2, Spice, Black Mamba, Bombay Blue, Genie, and Zohai. People who sell them may try to get around the regulation by labeling them “not for human consumption.”
