Skin cancer deaths soar for men in developed nations

Skin cancer deaths soar for men in developed nations

Skin cancer deaths among men have soared in wealthy nations since 1985, with mortality rates among women rising more slowly or even declining, researchers have told a medical conference in Glasgow.

Reasons for the discrepancy between sexes are unclear but evidence suggests men are “less likely to protect themselves from the sun” or heed public health warnings, Dorothy Yang, a doctor at the Royal Free London hospital in London said on Sunday.

More than 90% of melanoma cancers are caused by skin cell damage from exposure to the sun or other sources of ultraviolet (UV) radiation such as tanning beds, according to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

In cervical cancer surgery, minimally invasive is worse than open, study says

Cervical cancer surgery choicesThe type of surgery a woman has will affect her ability to survive cervical cancer, new research suggests. Among patients with early-stage cervical cancer, women who undergo minimally invasive operations have a greater risk of dying than those who undergo open surgeries, two studies published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine found.

The studies compared the same operation, radical hysterectomy, performed both as open surgery and as a minimally invasive procedure.

NFL players with brain trauma receive notice of settlements stripped to nothing

CTE families see compensation stripped to nothing

For debilitated and often-broke former football players and their families, the National Football League's agreement to pay more than $1 billion in a settlement for victims of chronic brain trauma appeared to be the end of the battle that had consumed them for years.

The money was supposed to provide a measure of peace and stability for the wives, widows and children of tormented players who had died young or are fading away in nursing homes. Not disclosed, however, is the significant portion of the fund that is being withheld from those it was promised.

Bombshell New Study Calls For Ban On Pesticide Family Tied To Brain Damage In Kids

New study calls for pesticide ban

The entire family of widely used pesticides known as organophosphates causes brain damage in children even at low levels of exposure ― and should be phased out.

That’s the finding of a first-of-its-kind paper, published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS Medicine, that examined all the existing scientific literature on a class of chemicals that has for decades served as the main ingredient in farmers’ pest killers.

The results are staggering. The eight researchers who authored the paper found there is no safe level of exposure to any organophosphate pesticide for pregnant women, whose babies suffer disorders ranging from impaired mental and motor skills and memory loss to autism and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Dems blast Trump rule changes on ObamaCare

Dems blast Trump changes to Obamacare
Democrats are blasting the Trump administration for loosening ObamaCare rules governing the waivers that states can use to avoid requirements under the health-care law, arguing it shows that the GOP does not actually want to protect people with pre-existing conditions.

The new rules, announced Monday, in one example could allow states to use ObamaCare subsidies to help people buy skimpier, cheaper “short-term” health insurance plans, rather than full ObamaCare plans.

Trump Administration Pushes for New Legal Definition of Gender

Trump seeks legal definition of genderThe Trump administration has reportedly moved to establish a legal definition of gender as a biological condition determined by genitalia at birth, a move that would essentially undo the protection and recognition of transgender people granted by federal civil rights law.

Citing a memo reportedly sent out by the Department of Health and Human Services, The New York Times reports that the agency is pushing for key government agencies to adopt a definition of gender as something determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.” The definition suggested by the agency would rigidly define sex as unchangeable, either male or female, and determined by genitalia at the time of birth, according to the Times.

Trump May Not Be Crazy, But the Rest of Us Are Getting There Fast

Trump anxiety growingCNN before love-making is not his idea of a turn-on.

But she can hardly turn it off—engrossed as she is in the latest unnerving gyrations of Washington.

Who else to blame but Donald Trump? A president who excites hot feelings in many quarters has cooled them considerably in the bedroom of a Philadelphia couple, who sought counseling in part because the agitated state of American politics was causing strain in their marriage.

The couple’s story was relayed to POLITICO by their therapist on condition of anonymity. But their travails, according to national surveys and interviews with mental health professionals, are not as anomalous as one might suppose. Even when symptoms are not sexual in nature, there is abundant evidence that Trump and his daily uproars are galloping into the inner life of millions of Americans.
