Being High Risk

Normal people get exposed to something and they get told'call us if there are any changes in whatever it is that is bothering them'. They get sent home basically with a'take two options and call me in the morning'.Me? I'm not a normal person. With my medical history? Of course not.We live in a wooded area with lots of deer and mice outside. Our two cats like to go in and out and in and out and in and out.

PANCREATIC cancer is harder to treat in the later stages so it is important to act on the warning signs as soon as they appear. One warning can be seen in the colour of your urine.

Then stomach cramping, and — for the unluckiest few — difficulty breathing, passing out, and even death. In the last decade and a half, thousands of previously protein-loving Americans have developed a dangerous allergy to meat. And they all have one thing in common: the lone star tick. Red meat, you might be surprised to know, isn’t totally sugar-free. It contains a few protein-linked saccharides, including one called galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose, or alpha-gal, for short. More and more people are lear...
