- 1 in 10 Babies Disabled Due to Mom's Drinking: StudyAs many as one in 10 children in the United States have some type of disability due to their mother's drinking during pregnancy, according to a new study led by the University of California, San Diego.
"Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders we think are the most common cause of neurobehavioral problems in children worldwide," Christina Chambers, Ph. D., Professor of Pediatrics, UC San Diego said.
The study looked at 6,000 first graders in four different U.S. Regions: the Midwest, Southeast, Rocky Mountains and Pacific Southwest, which included San Diego.
The researchers sampled the students for two academic years from 2010 to 2016.
- Sex addiction IS an illness, doctors insist
Calls to classify sex addicts as 'mentally ill' have triggered a row among doctors and campaigners helping victims of predators like Harvey Weinstein.
Eleven senior specialists, in a letter to the World Psychiatric Association, are pressing for compulsive sexual behaviour to be recognised as a mental disorder in its own right.
But the proposal was last night condemned by those who fear it will allow sexual misconduct to be blamed on a medical condition. Rachel Krys, from the charity End Violence Against Women, said: 'We absolutely object to anything that condones harmful sexual behaviour to others, mainly women.'

- Nutritionist claims pizza is a healthier breakfast than cerealLooking to start your day off with a nutritious meal? Forget Cheerios. Instead, reach for a slice of pizza, says one dietitian.
On Monday, blogger and dietitian Chelsey Amer caused a stir when she told the Chicago Tribune that a greasy slice of pizza is healthier than a bowl of cereal with milk.
"You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories," Amer said. "However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning."
She acknowledges that pizza isn't necessarily a health food, but maintains that it's a more balanced meal than a typical bowl of sugar flakes.

The man's wife was in a coma. She had been in it for months. Her nurses noticed during her daily bed baths that there was a slight response on the monitor whenever one of them was washing her private area. Her doctors verified there was indeed some movement.
They met with her husband and explained what happened, telling him, "As crazy as this sounds, maybe a little 'oral sex' will do the trick and bring her out of the coma."
The husband was skeptical, but they assured him that they would close the curtains for privacy. The husband finally agreed and went into his wife's room.

- The US spends about twice what other high-income nations do on health care but has the lowest life expectancy and the highest infant mortality rates, a new study suggests.
More doctor visits and hospital stays aren't the problem. Americans use roughly the same amount of health services as people in other affluent nations, the study found.
Instead, health spending may be higher in the US because prices are steeper for drugs, medical devices, physician and nurse salaries and administrative costs to process medical claims, researchers report in JAMA.
"There's no doubt that administrative complexity and higher drug prices both matter - as do higher prices for pretty much everything in US healthcare," said lead study author Irene Papanicolas of the London School of Economics and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston.
"These inefficiencies are likely the product of a number of factors including a reliance on fee-for-service reimbursement, the administrative complexity of the US healthcare system and the lack of price transparency across the system," Papanicolas said by email.

- Selfies - or self-photographs - can distort the face and make the nose look larger than it is, according to plastic surgeons who say they've seen an uptick in requests for cosmetic procedures from people who want to look better in selfies.
"Patients under age 40 take out their phones and tell me they don't like how they look," said Dr. Boris Paskhover of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark.
"They literally show me a selfie of themselves and complain about their noses," he told Reuters Health by phone. "I have to explain that I understand they're not happy but what they're seeing is distorted."
According to a poll by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, 42 per cent of surgeons have seen patients who want procedures to improve their selfies and pictures on social media platforms.

- The future of health care looks small and digital.
Micro hospitals are emerging in some suburban and urban markets as a backup to community facilities - or in regions where there is not enough demand for full-sized hospitals. The facilities range from 15,000 to 60,000 square feet, substantially smaller than community hospitals, and offer as few as eight beds.
"We still have to be fully prepared to see and treat any patient that walks through our doors," Laura Hennum, a regional CEO of the Dignity Health St. Rose-Dominican Neighborhood Hospitals, told CNBC. She's responsible for four micro facilities in the greater Las Vegas area.
These smaller facilities can provide lower-cost care for patients compared with traditional community hospitals, Dr. Richard Zane, chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Colorado, told CNBC.
Mega hospitals, which can offer as many as 1,000-plus beds, "have evolved into large, profitable, expensive, technology-laden institutions," Zane said.

- Pharmacies gag order to keep you from getting the lowest price. How do you like your healthcare now US Citizen?Posted 03/01/2018 02:59 PM
- Bend over and grab your ankles. "thank you very much sir". posted:WASHINGTON - As consumers face rapidly rising drug costs, states across the country are moving to block "gag clauses" that prohibit pharmacists from telling customers that they could save money by paying cash for prescription drugs rather than using their health insurance.
Many pharmacists have expressed frustration about such provisions in their contracts with the powerful companies that manage drug benefits for insurers and employers. The clauses force the pharmacists to remain silent as, for example, a consumer pays $125 under her insurance plan for an influenza drug that would have cost $100 if purchased with cash.
Much of the difference often goes to the drug benefit managers.
Federal and state officials say they share the pharmacists' concerns, and they have started taking action. At least five states have adopted laws to make sure pharmacists can inform patients about less costly ways to obtain their medicines, and at least a dozen others are considering legislation to prohibit gag clauses, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

- Utah leaders have long sought to play a central role in the anti-pornography movement, but the state's most well-known attempt to strike down smut did not go so well.
The state's much-lampooned "porn czar" only lasted a few years in the early 2000s before the position was scratched in budget cuts. Last week Utah legislators eliminated the statute permitting the state attorney general to employ such a prosecutor.
"It's not the job of the government to sit in a dark room and review porn," said Utah state Rep. Michael McKell, R-Spanish Fork, the House sponsor of the bill that eliminated the czar - who, he stressed, was not intended to be an obscenity nanny in the first place.
But Utah's anti-erotica ambitions have not waned. The tactics have just changed. In this heavily religious state, the fight against porn is increasingly being framed not as a moral crusade but as a public health crisis. Although there is significant debate on whether that is actually true, Utahns have been a very receptive audience to the message.
They have also proved to be adept at spreading it. And now others who are wary of the ways in which porn has proliferated in the information age are adopting Utah's public health framing.

A YouTuber who said that eating a raw vegan diet, drinking juice and praying to God cured her cancer has passed away.
Mari Lopez, one half of the vlogging duo Liz & Mari, succumbed to an aggressive terminal cancer that spread to her blood, liver and lungs.
She was known for posting viral videos about how she was able to cure her stage four diagnosis through faith in God and following a strict diet of raw vegetables.
Today in an interview with babe, Liz Johnson, who made videos with her aunt Mari, doubled down on her beliefs, saying she "completely" stood by what she posted.

- I am a 41 year old man and I haven't noticed this since a couple of years back. A big (5-10mm) ball of dark brown to dark orange ball of wax plops out of my ear.
Doc says it's OK, but I never had this before. Is it due to my environment or some other factors? I had it happen last summer, then it went away. I have been sick off and on with colds the last two months and now I am better.
Anyone want my stereo?
