Recent Plastic Surgery News

As we have written here before, plastic surgery is coming up more and more in the news and as the prices for these procedures decrease and it becomes more easily accessible. Here are some of the most recent headliners: So far this past year we’ve seen a couple individuals surface on media outlets requesting procedures to look like celebrities including Justin Bieber, but there’s always another celebrity. A 30 year old Texas woman going by the name Kitty has undergone six plastic surgeries costing about $25,000 to look like Jennifer Lawrence. Kitty did acknowledge that this money could have went … Continue reading  

The Importance of Water

Water covers 71% of the earth, but 96.5% of this water is found in the seas and the ocean. Only a small fraction of the Earth’s water is freshwater and 98.8% of that is either in ice or ground water. That leaves an incredibly small amount of water left for humans and animals. For humans, water is a vital resource and we can go weeks without food, but only about 3-5 days without water. A man’s body is made up of about 60% of water while a woman’s body is made up of about 50%. Water is a carrier, distributing … Continue reading  

Google Glass will be used by Doctors

Think the field of medicine is quickly advancing? Think again. It’s advancing much faster than you might be able to imagine. Pretty soon your doctor may be wearing Google glass the next time you visit him/her. Google glass is a wearable computer with an optical head mounted display. It displays information like a smart phone in a hands-free format. One of the first places you may see the Google glass is in the operating room. Stanford University physician Dr. Homero Rivas has identified the potential of such technology and was introduced to augmented reality. In augmented reality, Google glass is … Continue reading  

Low Cost Filtered Drinking Water

Many Americans may take clean drinking water for granted. Yet 768 million people do not have access to safe and clean drinking water. As many as 1,400 children die each day due to unclean drinking water. Currently there are more people who have mobile phones than a toilet. The average American taking a five minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day. So as we can see, access clean water is a huge problem. Creating clean water across the globe would have enormous health benefits. However, individuals at MIT … Continue reading

Obesity rates declining in children

It been known by obesity researchers that obesity can take hold at a young age. It should be known that it is mainly up to the parents to control what is being consumed at mealtimes, not the children. These children who develop obesity at a young age, as early as 6 years old, can start showing changes in their heart muscles which could lead to problems in the future. Starting healthier habits as a child can make them much easier to carry through as adults. A federal study that will be published this Wednesday in the Journal of the American … Continue reading  

A little bit about diets

You hear a friend or coworker is dieting. What does that even mean? There are so many diets and do they even work? The definition of a diet according to google is: “restrict oneself to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight”.

So in order for a “diet” to work it must become part of your lifestyle. There are a variety of diets out there to accommodate your lifestyle. We’ll … Continue reading  

New Medical Device can seal Gun shot wounds

RevMedX is developing a revolutionary new type of hemostatic dressing that can be used to seal gunshot wounds. These are used in controlling bleeding that cannot be normally controlled by tourniquet methods. The company has already received $5 million in funding from the American military in order to bring this concept into production. The development of this was spurred by the thought of medics quickly dressing gunshot wounds on the battlefield.  Previously developed products include foam that medics would spray directly onto the wound and would expand rapidly. This product failed since the blood pressure is so high, it would … Continue reading  

Genital Surgeries: An Increasing Trend and Other Headliners

An increasingly popular trend among females involves permanently changing the look or feel of the genitalia. This has been spurred by the increased availability of pornography and other explicit images which show “better looking” genitalia. It has been reported that these procedures do carry various risks and do not show any improved sexual functioning or self-esteem. The procedures are widely advertised across the internet and some physicians reported performing as many as 200 per year. This increasing trend seems to be a result of decreasing pubic hair in the locker room. In recent years many women have opted to shave … Continue reading  

Nutrition Labels Renvisioned and More

Before the 1960s no foods had any nutrition information labeled. Then by the 1990, the FDA required all packaged and prepared food to have nutrition labels. However they have largely remained unchanged since then. The FDA has made it a priority this year to revamp those labels and eating healthier may soon be much easier. The previous focus of nutrient labels has been fat count, but calories should be just as important for individuals who are calorie counting. In addition to this, the labels should be much clearer in terms of what types of sugars are being added to our … Continue reading
