Inhale #CocoLoko Before the #Ban

CocoLokoTimes are changing. Enter Coco Loko, a caco-based snuff powder containing ginkgo biloba, taurine, and guarine found in energy drinks. This powder’s said to put your brain into a focused stimulated state that lasts about an hour. There’s no research on it but Europe’s been sniffing the trend for a few minutes before a 29-year old entrepreneur introduced it to the US. Feel like flirting with a substance that may get banned in the near future? Here’s your chance. Live dangerously before it’s banned. If the law has anything to do with the future of chocolate snuff, Chuck Schumer wants this substance to be banned. Get it while it last on Amazon.

Heavens to Betsy #AntiBiotic Resistant #Gonorrhea

GonnorheaThere’s a recurrent infection of the headline having to do with antibiotic resistant gonorrhea. Nobody likes to hear there’s an antibiotic resistant strain of anything but when it takes the form of an STD that doesn’t have an effective early detection test…people get shook. Considering it’s the second most contracted STD, experts are hopeful that some of the antibiotics in the pipeline will be effective treatments. However, this form of gonorrhea is quick to evolve and this may ‘outsmart’ the release of new antibiotics. In the meantime, just keep in-mind if you’re not 100% they hold a clean bill of sexual health, break out a verse of the no-no square song. It’s a great way to kill the mood. Promise.

Unspoken #Gender of the #Baby

BabyGenderSome believe that children grow-up to realize they were trying to be a third-rate version of what their parents wanted them to be in life. For a slice of the population, that’s 100% true. When it comes to gender at birth, however, the nature of the beast is nobody’s call but Mother Nature. Things are about to get a little different, according to Gender Free I.D. Coalition, a group promoting the vision “to remove all gender/sex designations from identity documents.” A baby born in British Columbia was issued a birth card that did not designate its gender. It sounds like the Gender Free I.D. Coalition considers this to be a monumental step in liberating the fascism of “state assigned gender”. It will be a real memorable day when he or she reaches the age of puberty. Playing hypothetical devil’s advocate, what would a world order like that do to medical statistics? Ten years ago, a study called for more gender specific research on health outcomes in the world. For a social cause, I get what the Gender Free I.D. Coalition is doing but for the sake of health outcomes, people of any gender need to know where they stand. This’ll certainly give some doctors an element of surprise in their chosen specialty.

Invasion of the #SeaPickle

seapickleBehold the sea pickle. It’s not the prettiest create in the ocean but it sure turns-heads. What on earth are these deep-sea gelatinous creatures doing popping-up on the shores of the Northwest Pacific? It’s not one or two of them, either. Reports are saying that there are thousands of these sea pickles appearing all over the Northwest Pacific shoreline. This is raising curiosity because normally they are found in the deep-sea tropics. Researchers believe this bizarre appearance of see cucumbers is due to unusually warm water along the Pacific coast. How insane would it be in one appeared in your toilet?! Bothersome, if you ask me. Concerning as it may be, at least it’s not in your septic system. That’d be a have mercy.

#Breastfeeing and #KidsTooth #Health

Healing teethObviously breastfeeding is the first choice when it comes to baby’s nutrition in the first few minutes of life. Not only does it help build a robust immune system for baby but it helps mom bounce-back from the last 9-months of laborious wear-and-tear on her body. However, when it comes to tooth health – both mother and baby suffer, in the long-term. Kids who breastfed for longer than 2-years were found to have a more than 2x-increased number of cavities, compared to those who unlatched before the 24-month. This data was collected when those kids were 5-years old so it was retrospective. The higher sugar consumption in the diets of these kids when they were being breastfed may be to blame for the weaker dental health, in the long run. A quick rundown on the nutritional content of breast milk shows us that the sugar content is actually lower than formula but the type of sugar is not digested, it’s used to build the intestinal flora (gut bacteria) for baby. However, this also may be the reason why the sugar hangout in the mouth, weakening the building-blocks of those teeth (yet to emerge). Also, the carbohydrate content of breast milk is 17 grams, whereas cow’s milk is 11 grams. Maybe that’s why we lose our first batch of teeth as we grow? Life has a funny way of letting us figure things-out. I’m a huge proponent of the benefits across the board for breastfeeding, BTW.

Hey #ChineseVlogger That’s Not #Aloe

ChineseVloggerSome of us will do anything for our 15 minutes of fame. This Chinese logger, Ms. Zhang, accidentally poisoned herself when consuming a plant during a live stream.

You never know what your putting in your body when your break off a juicy-looking stalk from a faintly familiar plant. When it doubt, don’t bite!

Eating #Placenta May Hurt Your #Baby

PlacentaAlthough Americans are having fewer babies nowadays, keep this warning in-mind: eat your placenta at your baby’s risk! The practice of eating placenta after your baby’s birth is said to help moms mitigate symptoms of depression after birth, help mom recover physically, and other cultural significance support the practice. However, there haven’t been any medical studies validating the consumption of placenta, also known as placentophagy. What we can talk about is the rash of news indicating that a newborn was repeatedly getting sick with a blood infection. When looking further into the mother’s diet – doctor’s learned she was eating the placenta. It’s completely understandable that a mom would do anything to avoid PPD, especially if she’s had it before. The chances of it happening again are 50/50 for women who’ve suffered with it. Since the only thing the baby had consumed was the mother’s milk – deductive reasoning exposed the mother eating her placenta as the agent causing the recurrent staph infection. The threat of postpartum depression is real for new mom’s. Eating well is definitely on the ‘to do’ list to avoid PPD (postpartum depression) however the food list includes fruits, vegetables and whole grains – not placenta.

#FearofNeedles Meet the #FluPatch

FlyPatchFor the millions of people who avoid getting flu shots because they have a fear of needles – there’s hope on the horizon! There’s a flu patch in the works which allows for people to receive a painless Band Aid-like patch that delivers the flu vaccine through micro spikes on the skin. The volunteers who tested it said they preferred the patch over the shot. The patch does not require refrigeration and it can be administered at home. How well does it work? Actually, studies are showing that it’s as effective as the flu shot without any side effects.  One participant described the experience like pressing down on the hard side of Velcro, not painful. A larger trial will be conducted to show efficacy. The safety element was already established in the Phase I trial.  I wonder what ever happened to that time-release insulin patch. All the innovative ideas seem to quietly disappear, don’t they?

#RoundUp Needs #Warning of #CancerCausing Nature

RoundUpOh Monsanto. What a tangled web you weave. Holding dear the practice of denial, agricultural terrorism, and omission keeps things tight and right for your business…. until a report surfaces that your weed killer Round Up should be labeled with a warning that it can potentially cause cancer. Let me be the devils advocate for a minute. The sun can cause cancer. Those cute little plastic bottles can cause cancer. Even the coating on receipts is hypothesized to cause cancer. So how bad’s a little aggressive weed-killing? Well environmentalists are gaining momentum in their claims that Monsanto knew about the wrong-doing from the get-go. This has hints of the tobacco-industry fall-out, doesn’t it? This won’t be the last you hear of this saga. Farmers who have a kung-fu death grip on their fields untainted by Monsanto GMO seeds consider Monsanto public enemy #1 when it comes to agricultural terrorism. Talk about homeland terrorists. The phrase it’s nothing personal, it’s just business loses its flippant demeanor when farmers are losing their farms and houses over it. Too bad Monsanto can’t Round-Up a heart. They should engineer GMO seeds to grow a truth serum, not just tobacco.

How Much is Too Much Information? #TMI

LiveLongDNAIf you could know everything that could go wrong with your body, would you want that knowledge? That is the great moral issue that doctors face with the ease of offering genetic sequencing. I am a strong believer in being able to make the best decisions with as much information as possible. At the same time, this is why it’s so hard for me to give a simple answer to most questions. And some people just prefer to live their life in blissful ignorance.  I’m jealous. But if you had a genetic predisposition to a condition that could be alleviated by making certain lifestyle choices – would you want to know? Or you could take the path of least resistance, live your life as healthy as possible, and let the cards fall where they may. Here’s an idea to keep insurance out of it – what if you could do it on your own without any liabilities of being discriminated against because of a predisposition to breast cancer like the BRCA-1 gene? Think about the 23andMe  DNA Wellness Report benefits. I say keep it private and keep it in the back of your mind. Live long and prosper.
