About Bladder Cancer

 

The bladder is a balloon-shaped hollow organ located in the lower abdomen, which collects urine and disposes it off via the urethra. The bladder can develop cancer like any other part of the body. Researchers estimate that bladder cancer is more common in the developed countries such as the United States and France.

There are certain risk factors that lead to bladder cancer though physicians and researchers are not wholly sure about what causes it. Race and gender are listed as two risk factors as Caucasians and men are more likely to develop this type of cancer. And of course if there is a family history of this type of cancer then you are more than likely to develop it. The other factors have to do with inhaling second hand smoke or smoking yourself; a diet that is high in saturated fat; and recurring urinary tract infections or urinary stones.

Barring Bad Breath

It’s called halitosis and it could be the bane of your life. It cramps your style socially and in business-like situations. Bad breath occurs because of the state of your oral hygiene and also your gastrointestinal health. Bacteria in your mouth and in your digestive tract cause those foul odors. So it’s not enough that you brush and floss regularly—you also have to eat right.

When you can smell your own breath then it means you have halitosis. You can check this by blowing on your palm or using a handkerchief. Gums that are infected or diseased with abscesses are the most common cause of bad breath. Chronic gastritis and sinusitis can affect the breath as well so the nose, throat, and stomach need to be checked if they have some chronic infection. Plaque build-up inside your mouth can cause bad odors. Continue reading

Lasik Eye Surgery Risks

Lasik Eye Surgery helps people with glasses reduce their dependency on glasses or contact lenses.

Should `Cancer in the Family’ Keep You on High Alert?

Not always. Not as a rule. Approximately 50,000 studies have been conducted on cancer in the year 2005 and some of the `relevant to the topic’ researches found that 90 percent of cancer cases are not about cancer in the family but an outcome of triggers caused by environment – be it smoking, too much exposure to harsh sunrays, and viruses like hepatitis B. So even though it may look like cancer “runs in the family,” it may not really hold much ground.

Sometimes when cancer is being discussed at length it scares us. Because it seems like everything under the sun can give you cancer. The pollution in the air, the preservatives in food, asbestos in environment and contamination and chemicals in water- all these can seemingly be the cause of that dreadful disease we do not even want to think about.
