What do you know about Appendicitis - Appendix Disease?

Image
There is an organ called an appendix in the human body, which is about 3 1/2" long worm-like tissue attached to the colon. Been a vestigial organ, our body no longer needs it. Appendicitis is a disease that can occur if there's an inflammation in the appendix, maybe due to an infection or blockage.

Symptoms
•Pain in the abdomen.
•Fever ranging from 99 to 102F.
•Nausea and vomiting.
•Inability to pass gas.
•Loss of appetite.
•Pain during urination.
•Constipation or diarrhoea.
Unfortunately, early diagnosis can be tough because the symptoms of the appendix are similar to those of many other ailments. The diagnosis of appendicitis can be carried out through a physical test, CT scan, ultrasound, white blood cell count, etc. It can be treated with antibiotics or a surgery called appendectomy to remove the appendix. Removal of the appendix is either through a 4" incision or laparoscopy, and it's done under general anaesthesia. Full recovery can take up to 2-3 weeks, but the patie…

Should the use of internet, watching TV, or listening to radio be controlled for children?

Image
Do you know some religious groups prohibit the use of internet, DVDs & televisions, and radios? Have you heard of Deeper life Christian ministries? They tag TVs as a devilish machine. Some Muslim scholars and clerics warn their followers against using these items. They label these things as Haram (wrongdoings), why?
The use of the internet, watching of Television, playing DVDs and listening to the radio cannot be overemphasised. We learn a lot of things from these technological inventions. Benefits like secure communication of information, the passage of educational materials and many others, but can we pinpoint the naughty and evil things that are also picked up? Yes, we can.

A good number of students in (Kwara State Polytechnic, Nigeria) who sell their blood in blood banks to fend for themselves sell blood at least once in a week, and when they were asked how they manage to replenish their blood within a short period, they said "it was the mixture of one bottle of coke (or malt) and one tin tomato paste (the smallest size)."

How To Quickly Get Rid Of Bad Breath Or Mouth Odor

Image
Oh oh oh, do you open your mouth to talk and people close their nose? Many of us have bad breath. Some of us for short period, and others it is persistent. Facts says that up to 50% of people have offensive mouth odor at all times. The medical term given to smelly mouth is halitosis, and you can develop it even if you brush and floss always - in fact, bad breath is often not caused by the teeth - but by gums and tongue mostly.
Mouth odor is one thing you might fail to notice yourself, and no one would tell you (because it is not easy to do so. Imagine telling your Boss, "Madam Oyin, your mouth is smelly.") Many people will stay away from you, and you may run out of friends easily. It is very essential that you take care of yourself before you step out, and yes, look out for your loved ones and the people around you too.

What To Do If You Do Not defecate At Least Once in 3 Days

Image
Question: Is it dangerous if I poop/defecate/pass out faeces at most once in a week or once in two weeks?
Answer: Yes it is.
Passing out faeces or excrement once in a while instead of almost everyday is dangerous. People who pass out faeces once in a while do not have the urge to defecate so they think it is okay. It is a warning sign given to the body by organs associated with defecation (Liver, Large and small intestine, Rectum, Anus, Sphincter and others). It is not something to ignore especially as we continue to grow.
When the organs responsible for defecation are weak, they do their job once in a while instead of every time. When faeces are present in the rectum, the nervous system receptors present in the rectal walls are supposed to send messages to the brain that waste needs to be passed out of the body, when these receptors are weak the message is not sent to the brain even when faeces are present in the rectum. The faeces go back to the colon and more water is absorbed from …
