Dr. Temp Patterson highlights warning signs of throat cancer

Understanding the warning signs and risk factors for cancers such as that of the throat can mean the difference between life and death.

BURLEY, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to Dr. Temp Patterson, an otolaryngologist from Burley, Idaho, throat cancer often comes with several common and easily identified signs and symptoms. Cancer of the throat also has five primary risk factors, the otolaryngologist points out. A surgical subspecialty within medicine, otolaryngology deals specifically with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat, as well as related structures of the head and neck.

"People often ask me, 'when should I be worried about my throat problems being cancer?'" reveals Dr.Temp Patterson. "This is the information which could save their lives."

The ear, nose and throat specialist explains that the most common symptoms of throat cancer include a change in voice, trouble swallowing, weight loss, and progressively worsening wheezing. "Trouble swallowing, known as dysphagia, is one common symptom," says Dr. Patterson, "as is a change in voice."

The doctor is keen to point out that while these symptoms do not always indicate throat cancer, it's important to be observant. "If these symptoms persist for three weeks or more, it's imperative that a patient visits their doctor, and preferably an ear, nose and throat specialist, to make sure that they are not dealing with throat cancer."

Other symptoms include rapid, unexplained weight loss, and a sore throat, often coupled with a constant desire or need to clear the throat itself. "A persistent cough, especially where a patient may cough up blood, is another symptom which is especially important to get checked out," Dr. Patterson adds.

Along with progressively worsening wheezing, swollen lymph nodes in the neck are another indicator which should be checked by a doctor or ear, nose and throat specialist.

It's predicted that in 2018, over 13,000 adults in the United States will be diagnosed with throat cancer. "The disease is 4-5 times more common in men than in women, which is the single biggest risk factor for this disease," Dr. Patterson reveals. "This year, it's estimated that around 3,700 adults in the U.S. will die from throat cancer – equivalent to somewhere in the region of 2,975 men and 725 women," he adds.

Of the four other primary risk factors for throat cancer, Dr. Patterson explains that these are tobacco use, heavy alcohol consumption, being aged over 50, and a family history of the disease. "A family history, in particular, is a big risk factor," suggests the specialist. "Again, while tobacco use and heavy alcohol consumption do not always automatically point toward a diagnosis of throat cancer, they are highly significant risk factors for the disease."

"Age-wise," Dr. Temp Patterson adds, wrapping up, "those aged 50 and above are at an increased risk of developing throat cancer, so it's important to be vigilant as we all get older."

CDC Finds Babies Born to Women With Zika Virus Developed Health Problems Not Apparent at Birth

Local Health Departments Provide Essential Services to Affected Moms and Their Babies

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A newly released Vital Signs report revealed about 1 in 7 babies now 1 year or older who were born to women with Zika virus infection during pregnancy had one or more health problems possibly caused by exposure to the virus before birth. Some of these problems were not apparent at birth. These striking results show Zika remains a threat.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), representing the nations nearly 3,000 local governmental health departments, has worked closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to provide its members with the support they need to keep their communities safe from Zika infection.

“This report raises new alarm about the potential for devastating health impacts to develop in babies born with Zika virus months after birth. Follow-up care is crucial for all babies who may have been exposed to the virus during pregnancy, whether mom was tested or not,” said NACCHO CEO Lori Tremmel Freeman, MBA. 

How Local Health Departments Help

• Local Health departments work with healthcare providers to collect and report medical information about babies in the US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry (USZPIR).

• They can share clinical guidance for mothers and babies affected by Zika, and CDC’s resources for checking development: https://bit.ly/2sViQ0q

• Local health departments will continue to raise awareness about the risks of Zika during pregnancy and how people can protect themselves.

• Local health departments can connect families affected by Zika with support groups and services and encourage communication between healthcare providers and families.

CDC recommends that all babies born to mothers with Zika virus infection during pregnancy receive a variety of screenings and care even if they appear healthy at birth. CDC scientists analyzed the most current data reported from the US territories and freely associated states to the USZPIR to examine the follow-up care of these babies. This surveillance network is monitoring infants from over 7,300 pregnancies with lab evidence of Zika in the US states and territories combined. To date, this is the largest monitored group of women with Zika during pregnancy in the world and continues to help answer questions about the full impact of Zika. NACCHO recommends that Congress fund ongoing surveillance work at CDC as proposed in the FY2019 President’s Budget and House and Senate Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bills.

CDC further recommends that men with possible Zika virus exposure who are planning to conceive with their partner wait at least 3 months after symptoms or possible exposure (travel to or residence in an area with risk of Zika). This shortened timeframe also applies for men who are not planning to conceive with their partners but who want to prevent passing of Zika virus through sex. These updated recommendations are based on emerging data, which suggest that risk of infectious Zika virus in semen appears to decline substantially during the 3 months after onset of symptoms. Male to female transmission of Zika is of greatest concern among couples who are trying to conceive, or might conceive unintentionally. It is critical that such couples are counseled to use condoms or abstain from sex for the recommended duration of 3 months. All other Zika guidance remains unchanged. CDC continues to recommend people with a pregnant partner who have possible exposure to Zika use condoms or not have sex for the entire pregnancy. This is to reduce the risk of sexual transmission of Zika virus during pregnancy, given the very serious birth defects that can result.

Psychiatry an Industry of Death Museum

Psychiatry an Industry of Death Museum

Psychiatry an Industry of Death Museum

Museum demonstrates that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health and mankind.

Lawmakers, human rights advocates, healthcare professionals and private citizens have toured the museum and are using the information to take action and forcing psychiatry to account for its crimes.”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, has toured almost 5,300 people through the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum as part of an ongoing effort to educate Floridians on their rights under the Baker Act and are inviting all to view the museum at their headquarters in downtown Clearwater. The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and tours are free of charge.

Unveiled in July of 2015, the Florida version of the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum, presents the unvarnished history of psychiatry while also providing information on the state of psychiatry today. Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the cold, hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the museum uses interviews on the mental health industry from more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators and survivors to expose the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.

Coupling tours of the museum with seminars and workshops delivered by attorneys and healthcare professionals on the mental health law, known as the Baker Act, CCHR is working to educate lawmakers, doctors and all private citizens that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health.

Of the thousands of people that tour the museum and attend center events are psychiatric nursing students brought by their professors to learn the truth about psychiatry. Students from nursing schools and technical colleges from across the state come to the museum to go through the 2-hour self-guided tour as part of their clinical days and find the experience to be informative and eye opening.

The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and events are held weekly and monthly. Both are open and free to the general public. For more information please call 727-442-8820 or visit http://www.cchrflorida.org/events/

About the Citizens Commission on Human Rights: CCHR has produced seven award-winning documentaries, with 7 million DVDs in 18 languages reaching 120 million people exposing drugging in the military, the irreparable harm of electric shock and the labeling and drugging of children. Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Dr. Kam Habibi Reveals How to Become a Dental Hygienist

Becoming a dental hygienist takes hard work and dedication but it is also extremely rewarding.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dentistry is a niche medical market where many hygienists have found a home. This is a prosperous field with a lot of possibility for advancement. Plus, the hours are usually Monday through Friday, nine to five.

These incentives pale to the pay scale of the job, however, which make the occupation even more inviting. According to Dr. Kam Habibi, dental hygienists make an average of $72,901 per year. With that in mind, Dr. Kam Habibi is keen to reveal how a person interested in dentistry can become a dental hygienist.

The Scope of the Job

A dental hygienist has many different tasks. First, the hygienist escorts the patients to their dental room. This might sound menial, but it is extremely important. People are often fearful of going to the dentist, despite medical advancements. Therefore, being friendly and reassuring helps put the patients at ease. Next, the hygienist is tasked with cleaning the patient’s teeth and taking x-rays. They are also the person to decipher if the patient is having any trouble with their teeth. Once the dentist comes in, the dental hygienists assist the doctor with procedures and figuring out the cause of discomfort.

Get Certified

To become a dental hygienist, a person must first achieve at least an Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene. Aspiring hygienists can decide to attend a traditional college or dental school. Either way, after at least two years, applicants are qualified to take their licensure examinations. This is the next step to becoming a dental hygienist.

However, if a dental hygienist is interested in teaching, research, or clinical practice, a bachelor’s degree is required. This usually takes an additional two years. Yet, receiving this extra education will allow dental hygienists a plethora of opportunities. It might even help the applicant stand out among others when it is time to search for a job. Although to land a traditional dental hygienist job, only an associate degree is required.

Obtain License

The Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) is the only accredited institution for obtaining a dental hygienist license. However, there are programs that CODA offers available throughout the country. Therefore, finding a place to obtain a license should not be a difficult feat. The only caveat is that each state requires a license. Thus, a dental hygienist can only practice in the state that they are licensed in. While that makes sense, it is a fact that aspiring dental hygienists should be aware of.

Get to Work

Once a dental hygienist has received their CODA approved the license, though, they are free to get a job within the state. Throughout the process, it is a good idea to garner as many resources as possible, to simplify the job search. After all, if a person knows the applicant from the certification process, they are more likely to hire them.

To close, Dr. Kam Habibi is highly supportive of people wishing to enter the dental hygienist field. This is a well-paying medical support job that can lead the hygienist comfortably into retirement. Once dental hygienists find the right practice, there is little reason for them to work anywhere else. Therefore, many dental hygienists are contented in their position, but they always can learn more and advance.

California Court Rules Against Monsanto in RoundUp Case

Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys

Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys is now accepting claims for review to represent you if you’ve been a victim of Monsanto and RoundUp.

Too often, massive companies tend to operate like their actions do not have consequences. Anyone who has been hurt at the hands of this product should receive their due justice and compensation.”

— Mike Brandner

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, US, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, August 10, 2018, a California jury ruled against agriculture business giant Monsanto and their weed-killer product RoundUp. They decided that the product led to the development of terminal cancer in Dewayne Johnson, a former school groundskeeper that used RoundUp as a regular part of his job. As a result, Johnson was awarded $39 million in compensatory and $250 million for punitive damages. Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys is now accepting claims for review to represent you if you’ve been a victim of Monsanto and RoundUp.

A Huge Wake Up Call
For years, users of RoundUp have claimed that ingredients present in the product, especially glyphosate, has led to them developing cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Monsanto has feverently denied these claims. However, a California court disagreed with Monsanto and decided that the company should have placed a warning label on the product to warn potential users of the health risks. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., "This jury found Monsanto acted with malice and oppression because they knew what they were doing was wrong and doing it with reckless disregard for human life. This should send a strong message to the boardroom of Monsanto."

This is the first lawsuit concerning RoundUp that has made it to trial. Many lawyers believe this case has established a massive precedent for the remaining thousands of cases still pending against Monsanto and RoundUp. According to CNN, more than 800 patients were in the process of suing Monsanto last year, claiming Roundup caused them to develop cancer.

Still, Monsanto stands by the safety RoundUp and is not going down without a fight. Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge said, “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective and safe tool for farmers and others."

If you or a loved one developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or other cancers, after using RoundUp, you should not have to go to trial alone. Now is the time to discuss your case and make a plan for your pursuit of the compensation you so rightfully deserve.

Personal injury attorney Mike Brandner says, “Too often, massive companies tend to operate like their actions do not have consequences. My team and I want to assure that anyone who has been hurt or suffered loss at the hands of this product will receive their due justice and compensation. We want aid your fight against this giant corporation.”
