4 Common Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids or myomas are abnormal growths that often affect fertility and can cause heavy and unpredictable pain and bleeding. They increase the risk of preterm delivery, fetal growth restriction, and miscarriage. Moreover, fibroids can block natural childbirth and thus increase the risk of a cesarean section. Finally, they can provoke placental abruption - a condition in which the placenta separates from the inner wall of the uterus before delivery. There is a genetic component to the susceptibility when it comes to developing fibroids, but the exact mechanism of this is still unknown. Let’s look at four common signs and symptoms that you may have uterine fibroids.  1. Constant urge to urinate or feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen Fibroids that are located on your bladder may cause a frequent urge to urinate.

Ways You Can Reduce Light Pollution

The new comprehensive World Atlas of Artificial Night Sky Brightness has revealed that an increasing portion of our sky is being polluted by the artificial sky glow – atmospheric light scatter reflected from the electric lighting below. Apart from Milky Way being no longer visible to one-third of the population, the problem with light pollution goes much further than stargazing. Epidemiologists who have taken interest in the problem say that numerous conditions may derive from the disrupted circadian rhythms – our inner day/night clocks, while ecologists point out the adverse effects of artificial light to migratory birds and mammals. But what can we as individuals do to reduce it? Is there anyone in the room? The simplest, cheapest, and the most obvious way of fighting light pollution is to start turning lights off when no one needs them. While outdoor lighting has its time and place, illuminating dark areas like...

Health Impact of Noise at Work

Workplace-related hearing loss is one of the most common industrial health issues. Workers can be exposed to dangerously high noise levels in environments such as construction sites, foundries or textile mills. The most publicized effect of noise at work is the loss of hearing, a medical problem observed among coppersmiths as early as 1731. Short-term exposure to excessive noise can cause temporary hearing loss, with the duration from a few seconds to a few days, while longer exposure can cause permanent hearing loss. Hearing loss that occurs over time is not always easy to identify, with workers themselves not realizing their hearing is becoming impaired. Apart from noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), work-related noise has other negative health effects.  Noise-induced hearing loss As the most common occupational disease in the developed world, NIHL accounts for about one-third of all work-related diseases, even ahead of skin and respiratory problems. It’s usually caused...

Baby Proofing 101: Tips on How to Keep Your Child Safe from SIDS

SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. It is also known as crib death because the babies often die in their cribs. Researchers have discovered some factors that might put babies at extra risk. They've also identified measures you can take to help protect your child from SIDS. Parents commonly fear endlessly about how to protect their children from stranger kidnapping and violence, but many overlook one of the biggest threats to their children's safety and welfare — their own home. Yes, your children have the highest risk of being injured at home because that's where they spend most of their time.

Electronic Cigarettes & the Vaping 'Trend’: Does Science Support Health Benefits?

A man smoking an e-cigarette
It wasn’t a 100% victory and there’s still a long way to go, but Public Health England dropped a bombshell in August. Seemingly out of nowhere, one of the most important health bodies in the country declared that not only are e-cigarettes 95% less harmful than tobacco, but could also become an important weapon in fighting smoking by being dispensed as a licensed medicine. Veteran vapers enjoyed a wry smile and carried on – because it was not really news to them. Anti-tobacco campaigners, cancer sufferers, health practitioners and e-cigarettes traders and scientists have long held the belief that replacing a stick that contains several thousand toxins with one that contains far fewer can only be a healthier option. Surely? What the PHE statement did do was bring vaping back into the public consciousness, or introduce some people to it in the first place. BBC Radio 5 live ran a...

The Prenatal Ecosystem And Factors That Affect Its Functionality

Fetus in the womb
To state that the womb in which a woman carries her baby is yet another ecosystem may sound like an awkward metaphor, but it is actually quite true. In fact it is by far one of the most beautiful ecosystems ever; not only is it responsible for sustaining human life, but is also responsible for bringing one into the global ecosystem. Thus providing a growing fetus with the right environmental essentials is of utmost importance for its proper growth, development and nourishment. And naturally, as every ecosystem is affected by its environment, there are of course three key factors that affect a prenatal ecosystem; a woman’s diet, the state of her health and disease and the effects of drugs. The importance of a healthy diet They say when a woman sets on to her journey of becoming two – or more, she needs to begin eating for two as well....

Petition the UK Government to Protect us from Artificial Perfumes/Scents

Today I was contacted by Vivien Pomfrey who has started a peition on the 10 Downing Street website (UK Government site) calling on the Prime Minister to protect UK citizens from artificial perfumes in all their forms. I have just signed the petition and hope that if you are a UK citizen you will do the same. Vivien and myself also hope that those of you from other countries will petition your own governments through whatever means possible. This is an issue that has widespread implications for human health and the environment and deserves much more attention than it currently receives.  Thank you!   Here is the email from Vivien with the link to the petition and more information she has compiled: There is now a petition to Downing Street demanding a ban on the uncontrolled public use and importation of artificially-perfumed products at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/Scents/ You need to be a UK...
