A patient’s experience of chemotherapy and radiation

I had my first mammogram at age 35, and for the next 35 years I had mammograms regularly.

As many people are aware, those with obsessive-compulsive disorder experience disturbing obsessions of all sorts, and they perform compulsions (mental and/or physical) to try to keep these obsessions from happening.

It is important to note that people with OCD typically realize that performing their compulsions makes no se...

What I Learned When I Stopped Covering Up My Acne For 10 Days

Ever since I started my venture into womanhood (aka puberty), I've had acne - and not just on my face. I had it on my back, my shoulders, and my chest. Starting at a young age, I tried all the creams, topicals, and antibiotics my doctor would prescribe. It eventually got to the point where my doctor recommended that I start taking birth control. When taking "the pill" regularly, usage can help monitor hormones and, therefore, help control breakouts and oil production. Knowing how frustrated I w...

New study discovers why coffee can protect the brain, and it has to do with the kind of roast you drink

Although scientists already believed that drinking coffee could possibly reduce the risk of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, a new study by Krembil Brain Institute in Toronto, Canada suggests that the kind of roast you drink might determine how much protection your cup of joe might actually give you.

Every day, there are around 650,000 emergency service callouts via 911 for medical, police and fire assistance in the US; and by their nature these are some of the most urgent communications that we will ever make. But ironically in the age of smartphones, connected things and the internet, these 911 calls are also some of the most antiquated — with a typical emergency response centre still relying on the humans making the calls to tell them the most basic of information about their predicaments...
