---------READ THIS------------- SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE Music: Comptine d'un autre ete l'apres midi by Yann Tiersen By saying Strangest people i mean they are different ---------The Treeman------------- After a severe Human Pappiloma Virus (HPV) infection, Dede Koswara, a 35-year-old Indonesian fisherman, was dubbed the "tree man" because of the gnarled warts all over his body. He first noticed the warts on his body after cutting his knee as a teenager. Over time, Dede was sacked from his job, deserted by his wife and shunned by neighbours as the horn-like extensions covered much of his body and stopped him working. He has two children. After his case received widespread publicity, donations from the public and government help allowed him to get treatment, and in 2008, six kilos of warts were surgically removed from his body. ---------The Wolfman------------- Hypertrichosis is a medical condition that causes excessive growth of hair in areas where hair does not normally grow. It may be present over the entire body, or you could have it in only one or more areas. Some individuals will be born with the condition and others will develop it later on in life. Congenital Hypertrichosis is very rare. In fact, it is so rare that there have been only 50 verified cases since the Middle Ages. On 2008, the press interviewed Pruthviraj Patil, an 11-year-old indian boy who's face and body are covered with hair. He rarely leaves his home village in India because of the cruelty of strangers. Pruthvirajs family has tried homeopathy, traditional Indian Ayurvedic remedies even laser surgery without success, and he's now appealing to doctors to help him find a permanent cure since even after laser treatment the hair grows back. ---------The Blueman------------- A condition caused by the ingestion of silver, the Argyria's most dramatic symptom is that the skin becomes blue or bluish-grey colored. On 2008, ABC reporters interviewed Paul Karason, 40 year-old who's skin turned blue after he used colloidal silver to ease his ailments. It started a decade ago, when he saw an ad in a new-age magazine promising health and rejuvenation through colloidal silver. Karason sent away for a kit for making colloidal silver -- a home brew of microscopic silver particles suspended in water. For a while, he was drinking at least 10 ounces a day as a cure for arthritis. "I had arthritis in my shoulders so bad I couldn't pull a T-shirt off. And the next thing I knew, it was just gone." he explained the media, but these claims have no basis in science and after a couple of months, his whole skin turned blue. "I kind of hoped it would fade off!" But it didn't fade off. Argyria is permanent. ---------The OldKid------------- Many of u may have heard of a disease called progeria which is briefly a premature aging. As a result, u can find a 10 year-old child looking physiologically like an 80 year-old person. Usually they die at the age of 15 maximum of cardiovascular diseases. The importance of this , is that the discovery of the etiology and characteristics of this disease, can be considered a big leap in the long researchers quest in figuring out the causes and the cure from cardiovascular disease and this will shed the light more on the processes of aging in general since it's becoming a big issue. One of these guys is John Tackett who, despite all of his problems, was very happy and thankful for each second he was spending as if when something is rare, it becomes more valuable. He was also a very good drummer. He died exactly 4 years ago at the age of 15 but with a maturity of a 50 year-old guy. Anyway, this guy can be me, can be anyone, because life is short and we never have the time or the chance to do what we want to. We always run out of time. REST IN PEACE SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE

Hangy wart, papillomas or pedunculated neoplasm are other less common names for skin tags. The methods of removing skin tags are also many and varied. There is laser removal of a skin tag (High frequency Light Burning) liquid nitrogen removal of skin tags (sub zero burning), curettage of skin tags (scraping with a sharp spoon shaped tool) skin tag surgery, (cutting it out with a scalpel) tying skin tags with a short piece of twine to cut off the blood supply causing the skin tag to die and fall off. These methods of skin tag removal are used by the medical profession. Other methods such as skin tag removal at home include things like skin tags removed with apple cider vinegar, or skin tag removal cream containing coal tar which is derived from salicylic acid. Glycolic acid removal for skin tags. Herbal treatments to remove skin tags. Kitchen remedies to remove a skin tag. Duct tape skin tag removal. Lemon Juice removes skin tags, also suggested is lime juice. Genital skin tags are vaginal skin tags & anal skin tags. A skin tag on the anus sounds like a not very nice place to find a skin tag but they are more common than you might think! Skin tags on the neck, and around the areas of skin that rub together are the more common places where skin tags can be found on the human body. To have a skin tag of the genitals can be a very upsetting thing to experience, and to seek methods of removing a vaginal skin tag, can leave the patient seeking the services of a genito --urinary specialist causing extreme embarrassment to the person who has them.

Bunion and Hammertoe Surgery - Toronto Podiatrist Sheldon Nadal Doctor of Podiatric Medicine discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Bunions and Hammertoes. http://www.footcare.net Bunions are progressive bone deformities of the foot that often cause recurring or chronic inflammation, irritation, and pain that require surgical correction. Surgical removal of a bunion is called a bunionectomy. However, there are multiple types of bunionectomies, each designed to resolve different structural changes caused by the deformity. Bunion surgeries fall into two major categories: • Head procedures that treat the big toe joint. In a head procedure bunionectomy, the bone is cut just behind the joint, moved into its proper position, and fixed in place with a screw or pin. Head procedures are often used for patients who cannot be immobilized for long periods of time. • Base procedures concentrate on the bone near or behind the big toe joint. Different types of base procedures are conducted depending on the nature of the deformity. These range from cutting a wedge out of the bone and splitting it so that it can be moved into its proper position; making a semi-circular cut and rotating the bone into its correct position; or fusing the joint. Ligaments inside and outside the toe may also be treated during a base procedure. There are three important factors that impact the success of bunion surgery: 1. Choose a surgeon with extensive experience with bunionectomies. Because a deep understanding of the biomechanics of each patient's foot as well as the intricacies of each surgical option is needed, surgeons with more experience at doing bunionectomies are better able to help each patient achieve the best outcome. 2. Be realistic in your expectation about what a bunionectomy can accomplish. No physician can guarantee that a bunion won't recur or that a patient will be absolutely pain free. Additionally, because of the complexity of the foot structures impacted by a bunion, patients may never be able to wear normal or slender shoes. Bunion surgery can reduce or eliminate the bone deformity, improve foot alignment and function, and prevent damage to other toes, but it does have its limitations. Be sure you understand all the possibilities before opting for this surgery. 3. Bunion surgery is not a magic bullet. Surgery alone may not be all that is needed to achieve your best outcome. After surgery, many patients experience long healing and recovery times and often have to spend time in physical therapy. Additionally, you may need a corrective orthotic device on an ongoing basis. What To Expect Most bunions surgeries today are performed on an outpatient basis at a surgical center or hospital. Set aside the entire day for the surgery, although you may only be at the facility for a half day. Prior to the surgery, patients will need to make some preparatory arrangements. These include: • Seeing your Primary Care Physician (PCP) to make sure any other health conditions are stabilized prior to surgery and to document your complete medical history, which can then be given to the foot surgeon. • Arranging your schedule to make sure you don't need to take any long trips for at least two to three weeks following the surgery. • Lining up another person to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after the surgery. • Stopping the use of any anti-inflammatory medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen, for five to seven days before the surgery. The night before the surgery, you will not be able to eat or drink anything after midnight. You should also wash your foot the night before and morning of the procedure to help reduce surrounding bacteria and prevent infection. Bunion surgery is usually performed with a local anesthetic and is administered by an anesthesiologist. This may be combined with sedation medication to put you into twilight so that you are fully relaxed. After the surgery, patients are often given a long-acting anesthetic and pain medication, which is why someone else must drive the patient home. The type of procedure you have will determine the degree to which you can put weight on the foot immediately after the surgery. Some patients, particularly those having base procedures, may have to use crutches; others may be sent home wearing a surgical shoe. The foot will be covered in a dressing, which you will need to keep dry for up to two weeks or until the sutures are removed. During the first week after surgery, you will need to keep the foot elevated as much as possible. Ice packs also should be applied for the first three to four days to reduce swelling. Limited ambulation or walking is required over the first two weeks to promote healing. Most patients also are instructed on some basic exercises that need to be performed daily. Sutures are generally removed about two weeks after the surgery in the doctor’s office. Once the sutures are removed, you can bathe and shower normally, but will still need to wear a dressing over the wound to keep it clean and prevent infection. By the third or fourth week post surgery, swelling generally subsides enough for the patient to begin wearing a wide athletic shoe. It is important to continue daily exercises. If recommended, physical therapy may be initiated at this time. Once the wound has completely closed, you can use lotions to soften the skin in the surgical area. By week five after the surgery, you will be able to walk short distances and do mild fitness activities. Continue following your surgeons instructions for increasing exercise and activities until you are back to normal. Visit our website: http://www.footcare.net

BY LINDSEY WOLF You're watching multisource health video news analysis from Newsy. Only a day after a court ruled against his parents’ wishes -- a high school wrestler underwent spinal surgery. Since an injury left him unable to move more than a week ago, 16-year-old Mazzerati Mitchell was getting herbal treatment from his mother -- Vermell -- who studied natural medicine. The family opted out of surgery because they feared it could cause permanent paralysis. But doctors -- and county authorities disagreed. The Delaware County Times reports a judge granted the county temporary custody and allowed surgery to move forward. An opinion piece says Vermell is delusional. “Their refusal to allow doctors to treat him is insane … the kind of insane that should allow responsible people to disregard your wishes and demands … No doubt that Vermell Mitchell is right when she says that there are cases where surgeons have opted to perform surgery when it wasn’t medically necessary. But she isn’t the least bit qualified to know when that’s true or if it’s true in her son’s case.” But, according to their lawyer, the Mitchell family thinks the court shouldn’t be involved at all. "They believe that the right of the child and the rights of the parents is more compelling than that of the state.” Vermell Mitchell insists the herbal therapy was working. She says the treatment helped her son move his arms, legs, fingers and toes before ever entering the Operating Room. But Mitchell’s family did have the opportunity to seek a second opinion. Before the surgery, they were unable to find a doctor who supported their stance against invasive treatment. She told the Fox affiliate in Philadelphia -- she thinks the hospital has ulterior motives. “I don’t feel as though they have his best interest in their hearts ... My feeling are, since this is a teaching hospital, that they are using my son as a human guinea pig or a human specimen to teach their interns here how to do this kind of procedure.” Doctors say Mitchell can come back in 6 months to get the plates surgically removed. Vermell says she will let her son decide if he wants to go through another surgery or not. Get more health video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy.

Ingrown Toenail – Podiatrist Passaic NJ - Anas Khoury, DPM Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, is usually caused by trimming toenails too short, particularly on the sides of the big toes. They may also be caused by shoe pressure (from shoes that are too tight or short), injury, fungus infection, heredity, or poor foot structure. Ingrown toenails occur when the corners or sides of the toenail dig into the skin, often causing infection. A common ailment, ingrown toenails can be painful. Ingrown toenails start out hard, swollen, and tender. Left untreated, they may become sore, red, and infected and the skin may start to grow over the ingrown toenail. In most cases, treating ingrown toenails is simple: soak the foot in warm, soapy water several times each day. Avoid wearing tight shoes or socks. Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed if an infection is present. Note: Please consult your physician before taking any medications. In severe cases, if an acute infection occurs, surgical removal of part of the ingrown toenail may be needed. Known as partial nail plate avulsion, the procedure involves injecting the toe with an anesthetic and cutting out the ingrown part of the toenail. Ingrown toenails can be prevented by: Trimming toenails straight across with no rounded corners. Ensuring that shoes and socks are not too tight. Keeping feet clean at all times.

http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/endosterol.html The choice of treatment will differ for each individual. A person’s age, general health, grade and stage of the cancer, symptoms, lifestyle and personal choice will all be taken into account. It is important that time is taken to consider the treatment options available. Treatment options include: Watchful waiting Prostate cancer is usually slow growing. If no symptoms are present the doctor may recommend no treatment apart from regular PSA blood tests and monitoring. This approach will be most suitable for low stage (T1-2, N0, M0), low grade prostate cancers. Surgery If the prostate cancer is causing a decreased urine flow or a complete blockage, surgery to relieve this may be required before any other treatment is undertaken. Trans urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical technique that allows blockages within the prostate gland to be removed. This surgery involves inserting a telescope-like instrument (resectoscope) into the penis and up through the urethra, until it is positioned within the prostate gland. A heated wire is inserted through the resectoscope and is used to remove excess prostate tissue that may be causing a blockage or restriction in urine flow. Hospital stay after a TURP is usually 2-3 days. In cases where the cancer has not spread beyond the prostate, surgical removal of the prostate gland may be recommended. Known as a radical prostatectomy, it involves removal of the entire prostate gland and possibly also the adjacent lymph nodes. It can be performed via an incision in the lower abdomen (retropubic approach) or via an incision in the perineal area (area between the scrotum and anus). A hospital stay of 4 – 5 days following surgery is usual. Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are potential side effects of a radical prostatectomy. Surgical techniques that avoid the nerves responsible for bladder control and sexual function ("nerve sparing" surgery) can help reduce the incidence of these side effects. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/products.html

It is interesting to note that as far as neo-Darwinism has actually influenced medical diagnostics, which hasn't been that much, it has led to medical malpractice: Evolution's "vestigial organ" argument debunked Excerpt: "The appendix, like the once 'vestigial' tonsils and adenoids, is a lymphoid organ (part of the body's immune system) which makes antibodies against infections in the digestive system. Believing it to be a useless evolutionary 'left over,' many surgeons once removed even the healthy appendix whenever they were in the abdominal cavity. Today, removal of a healthy appendix under most circumstances would be considered medical malpractice" (David Menton, Ph.D., "The Human Tail, and Other Tales of Evolution," St. Louis MetroVoice , January 1994, Vol. 4, No. 1). "Doctors once thought tonsils were simply useless evolutionary leftovers and took them out thinking that it could do no harm. Today there is considerable evidence that there are more troubles in the upper respiratory tract after tonsil removal than before, and doctors generally agree that simple enlargement of tonsils is hardly an indication for surgery" (J.D. Ratcliff, Your Body and How it Works, 1975, p. 137). The tailbone, properly known as the coccyx, is another supposed example of a vestigial structure that has been found to have a valuable function—especially regarding the ability to sit comfortably. Many people who have had this bone removed have great difficulty sitting. http://www.ucg.org/science/god-science-and-bible-evolutions-vestigial-organ-argument-debunked/ Surgical removal of the tonsils and appendix associated with risk of early heart attack - June 2011 Excerpt: The surgical removal of the appendix and tonsils before the age of 20 was associated with an increased risk of premature heart attack in a large population study performed in Sweden. Tonsillectomy increased the risk by 44% (hazard ratio 1.44) and appendectomy by 33% (HR 1.33). The risk increases were just statistically significant, and were even higher when the tonsils and appendix were both removed. http://medicalxpress.com/news/2011-06-surgical-tonsils-appendix-early-heart.html#share International HoloGenomics Society - "Junk DNA Diseases" Excerpt: A primary goal of IHGS is to elevate awareness of the fact that "some, if not all" hereditary diseases do not stop at the boundaries of "genes" http://www.junkdna.com/junkdna_diseases.html Excerpt: "elaborated in more detail in my “Obituary of Junk DNA “ http://www.junkdna.com/#obituary_of_junk_dna” ,,,uncounted millions of people died miserable deaths while scientists were looking for the “gene” causing their illnesses – and were not even supposed to look anywhere but under the lamp illuminating only 1.3% of the genome (the genes)." http://www.uncommondescent.com/intelligent-design/the-discovery-institute-needs-to-be-destroyed/#comment-357177 "Certainly, my own research with antibiotics during World War II received no guidance from insights provided by Darwinian evolution. Nor did Alexander Fleming's discovery of bacterial inhibition by penicillin. I recently asked more than 70 eminent researchers if they would have done their work differently if they had thought Darwin's theory was wrong. The responses were all the same: No. Philip S.
