Ovarian Cancer Or Cancer Of The Ovaries

The symptoms of ovarian cancer can appear months before the cancer is found. Unless a woman is getting the tests that would reveal the cancer these symptoms many times wont be diagnosed. This alone is one of the problems with detecting ovarian cancer in its early stages. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are quite often dismissed due to the fact that they can be rather benign.
Stomach swelling and digestive problems for instance which are common symptoms of the presence of ovarian can be easily dismissed and ignored. Stomach problems are something everyone experiences at various times in their life. Ovarian cancer afflicts more than twenty-two- thousand women annually in the U.S. If caught in the early stages this cancer is treatable as goes for many other cancers.If detected in its early stages, before it has spread from the ovaries a woman has a ninety percent chance of living for at least another five years. Unfortunately, less than twenty percent of ovarian cancer is detected in its e…

10 Diet & Fitness Resolutions To Make

Lose weight. Eat healthy foods. Exercise daily. If you're like many people, you made these or similar pledges during the annual New Year's Day ritual of resolving to improve our health. Of course, resolutions are easy to start; the challenge is sustaining them. Now, during March National Nutrition Month, have you held true to your good intentions? Statistics show that, at the end of January, some 64% of resolvers are still hanging in there; six months later, that number drops to 44%. Making resolutions is the first step, but, experts say, you need a plan and a healthy dose of perseverance if you want to succeed.
* 1. Have a Realistic Eating Plan
Have an eating plan that has plenty of variety, yet is simple, interesting, and tastes good -- such as the Mediterranean-style diet with its "good carbs" from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; healthy fats from nuts, fish, and olive and canola oils; and lean protein. According to a new study published in the journ…

Spice Up Your Sex Life

Since the dawn of time, people have looked toward elixirs and potions to improve their sex lives. Why else, after all, would one consume ground tiger penis, horny goat weed and Spanish Fly?
Perhaps because nearly one in five men in the U.S. suffer from erectile dysfunction, according to a recent study in the American Journal of Medicine. Some researchers have estimated that as many as 40% of U.S. women have low libido or inability to reach orgasm. Most quick fixes simply don't work, and some, like Spanish Fly, a supposed aphrodisiac derived from beetles that can cause kidney damage, are harmful.
But modern medicine has found ways--both proven and experimental--to improve your sex life. One place to start: old-fashioned remedies, which some say work best. Regular exercise can actually improve erectile function in most men, says Andrew McCullough, a urologist at New York University Medical Center--and we're talking jogging, not the acrobatic feats found in the back of a magazine. …

The Breast and Female Sexuality

If the present day situation is any indication, breasts are the defining point of a woman and women take pride in their mounds of femininity. They come in all shapes and sizes, and some are perky while others are somewhat more "relaxed," so to speak. Some areolas (the darker skin around the nipple... Mmm, the nipple) are larger than others, and even nipples themselves come in all shapes and sizes.

The bottom line; men love breasts. And today, you're going to learn about all of the wonderful things you can do with the lovely pair that you are fortunate enough to have staring you in the face.

Now that you've Mastered The Vagina, it's time to become the king of the Kinky Two. But before I reveal how you should go about taunting the twins, you have to understand what makes them tick.

When it comes to boobies, all ducts lead to the nipple, which is centered in the areola. The actual breast is composed of fat and breast tissue (slap on a ni…

Women Trafficking Ring Busted In Taiwan

The Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) on Tuesday busted a organized human smuggling operation which forced women from mainland China into prostitution across the greater Taipei area, the CIB announced this week.
CIB agents arrested three men and five women in Taipei County on Tuesday after being tipped off on the human smuggling operation late last year.
CIB said that the operation acted behind the front of a corporation named "Yiu Chia Li" in Taiwan to solicit men to engage in prostitution.
Mainland women who were told to enter into false marriages with Taiwan men in mainland China were brought into Taiwan on grounds of joining their husbands.
The highly organized operation collects a fee from the women for brokering the false marriages while paying for Taiwan men who are willing to use their names in the marriage documents.
The culprits then will operate under arrangement with hotels to locate its customers or directly send the women to the customer's residences.
The women…

Indian Sex Workers Oppose Legalisation Of Prostitution

Amidst the din of the celebration of International Women's Day on Thursday, sex workers in the capital yesterday opposed legalising their profession, saying it will spell disaster for the society.
"What is the need to legalise this profession? Do you wish the human body to work like a machine? Legalising it will add to more confusion and trouble for everyone including us," said Rajshri, a representative of the sex workers of the red light district of G B Road area.
"Many girls may choose to take up flesh trade and end up in these cages."
The sex workers said all they want is a better life for their children.
"All we want is that our children should be taken out from here. There needs to be some arrangement for their growth away from here," Rajshri said.
"What Women's Day? What help would be this reservation? Can you guarantee that we would do better if women rule? All we want is that the government should help us free our children from these cells…

Pressures keep some black women from working out

Harry Jackson Jr. St. Louis Post-Dispatch (MCT) ST. LOUIS - Andrea Riggs was ready to take on the competition when she opened her personal training studio in Black Jack, Mo. The niche for Body Beautiful was to help black women get into shape, be healthy and look good. The competition she ran into, however, wasn't Bally or Gold's or 24 Hour Fitness. Instead, her greatest competition came from attitudes about exercise and diet from the people she wanted for her clients: black women. "They told me they didn't want to lose weight," Riggs said, recalling her efforts to recruit clients. "It's cultural expectations and pressures. African-American women seem to say, `We want meat on our bones, and we all want to be bootylicious and appeal to African-American men.'" People who battle health disparities in African-Americans agree with Riggs. But they admit the topic rarely is broached because of fear of political incorrectness. Still, that well-meaning sensitivi…

Seven Risk Factor For Breast Cancer

There’s no one big way to reduce your risk for breast cancer, but a combination of approaches could make a difference. In recent years the statistical picture of breast cancer has brightened, thanks to early detection and advances in treatment. More tumors are being caught at an early stage; the rise in incidence of the disease has slowed; and the death rate has dropped. Nevertheless, breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and the second most likely (after lung cancer) to take their lives. Data aside, breast cancer looms large in our health concerns because most of us know it personally. Some of us have had the disease ourselves, and others have experienced it through friends or relatives. Particularly unsettling is its seeming randomness: Nothing seems to explain why one woman develops breast cancer and another doesn’t. Granted, family history and certain gene mutations can substantially increase risk. But such factors aren’t involved in most br…
