Men are from Venus?
One of the most talked about speakers at my recent 2015 Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit was New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Gray, who wrote the groundbreaking book “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Dr. Gray is an expert in understanding the differences between the sexes and teaching men and women to live in harmony by acknowledging them. During his speech, Dr. Gray revealed that those differences even extend to how environmental factors (including stress) can impact men and women differently. I’ve seen this phenomenon in my own research. The most obvious example is how our modern environment has increased estrogen levels in men, which wreaks havoc on their bodies. When I started testing my male patients’ estrogen levels 20 years ago, people thought I was nuts. Back then most doctors considered the “female hormone” relevant only to women. But my research showed that our modern environment was causing dangerous estrogen imbalances in men. You see, men naturally have small amounts of estrogen in their bodies. But those levels have increased dramatically as more and more endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) have entered our environment. At the center of the problem are EDCs that mimic estrogen… Industries dump tons of pharmaceutical and synthetic estrogens that eventually seep into our drinking water. And it doesn’t stop there. Ranchers in the meat and poultry industries inject their cattle and chickens with es...
CONCLUSION: Organizational support may be a key factor for workplaces to reduce stress and diabetes risk. Further testing of organizations' supportive role on employee health may be helpful in developing future workplace programs. PMID: 29667501 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Our case report underlines the importance of active endoscopic surveillance of the remaining colon and rectum in patients with diverting stomas and inflammatory bowel disease in order to detect stenosis. If endoscopic control is not possible due to obliteration, surgical therapy must be discussed due to the risk of developing cancer.Case Rep Gastroenterol 2018;12:143 –146
Type 2 diabetes is a pandemic disease with an incidence that has risen steadily over recent decades. Experimental evidence in animals has demonstrated that intestinal bypass surgery of the upper small intestine, particularly the duodenum, has an important role in glucose homoeostasis. Furthermore, Roux-en-Y bypass performed as bariatric surgery has shown to correct hyperglycaemia from the first postoperative days in obese diabetic patients. Therefore, on the basis of these considerations, duodenal mucosal resurfacing was studied in type 2 diabetes patients as a minimally invasive procedure that could offer an alternative t...
DIABETES type two symptoms include increased thirst, blurred vision and fatigue. Sufferers are advised change their lifestyle and exercise to keep their bodies working normally. Some exercises, however, should be avoided.
Conclusions: This study is the first nationwide study presenting an increase in incidence of EP-NEC patients from 196 to 260 cases annually in the Netherlands. We found the best 5 year relative survival to be for EP-NEC patients with local disease located in the bladder, where the worst 5 year relative survival was found in the oesophagus.
DIABETES type 2 symptoms can include unexplained weightless, fatigue and blurred vision. These can also be signs of less serious health problems, which is why the condition can be difficult to detect. But if diabetes is left untreated it can lead to a number of health complications. A balanced diet and exercise are the best ways to treat it, but some health experts also recommend taking supplements.

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...
When I started practicing medicine, I made a discovery that changed my view of the world forever. It was something few understood at the time. I’m talking about an “alien molecule” that gets into your blood and reprograms your cells to become more “feminine.” When this happens to women, it throws off their natural cycles, makes them gain weight, and pushes them emotionally into a very anxious and frustrated state. For men, this “invader” makes them soft, fat, depressed, and unable to perform. When I first started testing for this back in the 1990s, other physicians thought I was of...
