Study shows that dogs can sniff-out cancer in humans with incredible accuracy

A new study shows that dogs can sniff-out cancer in humans with almost 100% accuracy: Some highlights from the article: Whereas humans only possess six million smell receptors in their noses, dogs have 300 million, which means they’re about 10,000 times better at detecting odors than humans. [In checking blood samples from lung cancer patients] dogs managed to correctly identify the lung cancer samples 96.7 percent of the time and the n...

Seasonal Allergies

I grew up on a farm and never had problems with dust or pollen. Fast forward to 42 years old and wham. I can't go outside in the spring without taking all sorts of antihistamines, allergy medications, eyedrops, nasal sprays, pills, you name it. That's after rinsing out my sinuses twice a day. I'm thinking of doing the allergy shot regimens to stop this allergy nonsense as a long term preventative measure. Anyone have any experiences with allergy shots and their effectiveness? It's likely a...

The Alarming Hepatitis B Vaccine Studies Every Parent Should See

The Hep B vaccine is given to 1 day old infants in hospital even though there is scientific proof that it's a extremely dangerous and completely unnecessary vaccine to give to an infant. Don't take my word for it, check out the studies cited in this video for yourself...

Vitamin D

Does anyone know the lab process for measuring one’s vitamin D? I am not looking for a main in test. I would like to be able to do some of my own blood lab testing. Vitamin D is my focus right now. Maybe there is an indirect test. I mean a measurement of blood that would not measure vitamin D directly but would vary based on the vitamin D level. What ever you have know will be appreciated.

The Story of Ignaz Semmelweis Quote: Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis[A] (German: [ɪˈɡnaːts ˈzɛml̩vaɪs]; Hungarian: Semmelweis Ignác Fülöp; 1 July 1818 – 13 August 1865) was a Hungarian physician of ethnic-German ancestry[2], now known as an early pioneer of antiseptic procedures.

Has Anyone Tried EyeQue?

Has anyone tried EyeQue home refraction test for eyeglasses? It looks interesting but I don't have a smartphone. I do have a trial lens kit so I can get my prescription but the EyeQue is more automated and might let anyone test their own eyes.

Plantar Fasciitis Physical Therapy

I've had Plantar Fasciitis for nearly three years. It plateaued out a while ago and seemed to be getting better, but over the last 6 months it has progressively gotten significantly worse, and the foot Dr. took me out of work for 5 weeks so I can go to physical therapy and rest (my job is very physical and involves walking several miles a day on concrete). Thankfully, due to having my appendix out earlier, I have hit my out of pocket maximum for my insurance for the plan year, and so the therap...

Online meds and equpment?

Sirs, First time poster here. Basic question: Can the medical basics be purchased online? IV's, drip IV's, medicines including anti-depressants, opiates, one-off injectibles, sedatives, snake venom, scapels and the basic meds/items found in the many doc-in-a-box offices. And yes, I'm quite serious and not a junky but have the ability to do the same thing 90% of the docs can. Thank you in advance, Jim Oliver - Fort Payne, AL

So I'm working out again

I have had several instances where I had to keep him from falling on the floor, a couple where I had to get him OFF the floor, this week I had to hold him up until someone could get to us with a wheelchair.. Even if I didn't care about my own health (I do), I need to be in top shape. So. He bought me weight, weight bench, squat cage, etc. as a wedding present years ago. We also have a recumbent bike he bought used. It works great and I am under the weight limit. I also (embarrassed...

In 2016 about 90,000 people died of measles. This was the first year on record when global measles deaths fell below 100,000 a year.

soap for contaminated water?

I was at ground zero when Irma hit.Amazingly,we still had water..most of the time.It was under a boil order for about a month. Had enogh stored water for drinking and cooking,but was nice to still use the toliet and flush,most of the time. It was hot,and even with cold water ,it was a blessing to take a shower or 2 every day.Was careful not to get any in my mouth or eyes,or have any open cuts. Not sure why I'm thinking of this 2 years later,but I am. I store a lot of original blue dawn soap,...

Primatene is back!

Props to others in threads who noted Primatene's recent return to the epinephrine spray market. The hospitals pounded the FDA like crazy to stop it from coming back. But it is back and every prepper needs this in their med supplies. It's the only way to get epinephrine without a script. Why get some epinephrine? Ever seen the cost of short life span Epi-pens? Plus you have to pay and convince a doc for a script. Asthma, cardiac arrest, and severe allergic reactions are all situations wh...

Insulin prices Humalog was ~$35/ vial in 2001, now ~$300. Has been off patent and eli lily is offering a kind of generic at half price. Still $100 more than you can get it in canada. Affordability is an issue here in states, bigger problem in third world. Substantial percentage cannot afford insulin, expected to get much worse.

Hernia surgery.

Well, unfortunately I've been diagnosed with a small, reducible umbilical hernia. Not entirely suprising as they run in the family and what I do for a living requires semi-regular lifting and carrying of pretty heavy loads. It's not immediately an issue, but because of my work it's something I plan on getting taken care of ASAP (already have a consultation scheduled). The real unfortunate thing for me though is that I'm gonna be paying for the surgery out of pocket. Just wondering if anyone her...

Medicine Drop Points

With the opiod crisis my local news is touting "operation medicine drop". I don't get it, are people not smart enough to dispose of medications on their own? When they show large bags of meds gathered from drop boxes it makes me wonder about security and accountability. It seems that it would be easy for anyone in the chain to pocket whatever they pleased. I had some fentanyl patches and just burned them with paper trash.

Conjunctivitis Revealed a Few things.

I came down with conjunctivitis last week, and I thought it was a great reminder of a few things: 1. Know the footage of your residence, what I mean is - how many steps to the bathroom from the bedroom etc. 2. The pharmacist is more qualified then a dr and can deal with a lot of things. My local provided me with some meds, and informed me that she had seen others that day with the same condition. Thinking on this, the pharmacy may well be one of the first places to notice an epidemic/pandemi...
