Endometriosis and the gift of motherhood
When my first period came at age 13, it involved blood clots and extreme pain. I didn’t know what to expect or what was considered “normal,” but thankfully, my mother did. She recognized that my symptoms were unusual and immediately took me to see my pediatrician. I was first prescribed birth control pills, which seemed to help initially, but when my period remained heavy and painful, I was put on a different birth control pill that enabled me to have my period only four times a year. I thought my situation was normal – albeit uncomfortable and inconvenient. No one ever suggested that painful period...

Here ’s How the iPhone 8’s Wireless Charging Could Work
One of the most buzzworthy new features expected to debut on Apple’s long-awaited 10th anniversary iPhone (possibly called the iPhone 8 or iPhone X) is a technology that’s existed in consumer gadgets for years: wireless charging. As appealing as the concept of charging your phone without those annoying cables may sound, the concept’s name is misleading. You still need to plug your charger into an outlet, then make sure your phone is within range of it. It’s that wireless charging eliminates the need to actually plug anything into the phone itself. Instead, you rest the device on a compatible chargin...

Anti-inflammatory drug may help prevent heart attacks
Conclusion This well-conducted study shows promising signs that canakinumab may reduce the risk of future heart attacks and other cardiovascular events in people who've had them in the past. But before any changes are made to the current licensing of this drug, further research is needed to confirm the beneficial effects and the optimal dose. Most importantly, researchers will need to focus on the observation that the drug lowered white blood cell counts and increased the risk of fatal infection. They estimated around 1 in every 300 people taking canakinumab would die of a fatal infection. This number, while low, is sti...
