Gynecomastia and Man Boobs – Causes and Solutions

G

Most guys find a pair of voluptuous breasts very attractive and in fact spend a lot of their spare time looking at them. But you take those same breasts and put them on their own chest and suddenly they become a lot less desirable. Unfortunately though, it’s not completely unheard of for men to develop breasts. In fact, it’s a lot more common than you would probably think. The condition is known...

Post-Micturition Dribble – How to Stop Dribbling in Your Pants After Going to the Toilet

P

Post-micturition dribble is the technical term for something my friends and I used to call ‘splash-back’ (though in retrospect, this was clearly a misnomer). This is the last few droplets of pee that often linger after we think we’re done in the toilet and which can then cause you to inadvertently wet your pants after you’ve pulled up the zipper. This is not only a highly uncomfortable phenomenon...

The Mumps – Symptoms and Treatment

T

The mumps, also known as ‘epidemic parotitis’, is a viral disease that causes a distinctive swelling around the mouth and jaw which gives the condition its name. It was a common disease in children in the Western world until a vaccination was introduced at which time it became less of a significant problem. Today it is still a serious problem in third world countries, and can still on...

Water Intoxication

W

Any health journal or magazine you read you’ll find is always telling you to dink, drink, drink (water that is… not alcohol of course) and this is especially true if you’re walking through a desert or running a marathon. However what’s important to note is that it is possible to drink too much and if you do so you can end up causing more damage than if you weren’t drinking at all. This is what is...

Eight Ways Smoking Affects Your Oral Health

E

If you tell your doctor that you smoke, then you should be prepared to get an earful. This is something that we are all prepared for and expect – and even those who continue to smoke are largely aware of all the health issues that can be caused by it. However what you might not have expected as much is the hard time that your dentist might give you. You see, while we might not be aware of it...

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

C

Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when you breathe in carbon monoxide. This occurs when there is a gas leak in the home which can come from heating, cooking or other facilities in the home. This is a result of ‘incomplete combustion’ of organic matter which can occur as a result of an insufficient oxygen supply to the device. When oxidized, this organic matter is transformed into...

Suboxone Addiction and Detox

S

Sometimes extreme situations call for extreme measures, as you might well be aware if you have used Suboxone, or ‘Buprenorphine’ mixed with Narcan as it is technically known. This is a high dose tablet that is used to help treat a range of addictions. It is a semi-synthetic narcotic and is certainly a case of the ‘lesser of two evils’, providing you with a less harmful...

Carrot Allergy Symptoms

C

A food allergy can be a great bane and can have many negative effects on a person’s day to day life. While it may be fairly simple to avoid some foods, the problem is often simply that the person doesn’t know they have a food allergy, or that they don’t know what precisely is triggering it. This then can make it very hard to stop the symptoms and lead to unnecessary suffering...

Slurred Speech Causes

S

When someone has slurred speech (or ‘dysarthria’) this can be frustrating but it can also be alarming. Speech is the main way we communicate and so of course the main way we pick up information regarding a person. If they can’t formulate their words properly then this can make it difficult for us to understand what is going on inside their head and to question their mental...
