Questionable Medical Findings
Claimed Miracle Treatments Do they Work?
Whether you listen to the news on the radio, watch it on the television or read in the newspaper, there is hardly a day goes by that we are not provided with some new medical findings. Researchers are constantly conducting aggressive investigations, in an effort to promote longevity, discover the unknown causes of several deadly diseases(such as cancer, AIDS, and more), so that they can not only better able to treat or prevent them, but also better able to educate the public in general.
With the introduction of modern technology, states of the art medical equipment, more collaborative studies, researchers are gradually edging their way to treating, preventing and even eradicating several illness that once seems totally illusive or impossible to deal with.
However, on occasions there are still going to be eschewed studies and the engineering of treatments that promise nothing but false extraordinary miracles. Below for example,are several medical findings, that promise great result. You might find these of paramount importance to you. However, the question is, do all of these so-called miracle drugs and treatments work? This I don't know. In fact, you may have to do your own research to confirm this, or provide your own opinion on any of these medical claims that may be of interest to you. These information that I am about to share with you today, relates specifically to the following:
- Kidney Stones,
- Antibiotics usage,
- Type 2 diabetes
Kidney Stones - It has been said that lemon juice, apple juice, and grapefruit juice all help to dissolve kidney stones. Well, according to more recent findings, an increase in the consumption of either grapefruit juice or apple juice, may increase the risk for kidney stones. On the contrary, it is believed that an 8 ounce serving of coffee or wine on a daily basis may reduce the risk of kidney stones by at least 10-15 fifteen percent.
Antibiotics - On the subject of antibiotics, Pediatricians are now saying that children's ear infections should be treated in this manner: First, use a painkiller, then only use antibiotics if the pain gets worse, or if the child develops a high fever. Recent research shows that most infections often clear up on their own. Furthermore, more strains of antibiotics-resistant bacteria are usually created as a result of the indiscriminate use of antibiotics.
Botax- Findings reveal that botax not only reduces wrinkles, but can also be used as an effective treatment for overactive bladders, prostate enlargement, migraine headaches and excessive sweating.
Type 2 Diabetes - According to late studies, people with type 2 diabetes who develop a resistant to insulin should add one half teaspoon of cinnamon to whatever beverages or drinks they consume daily. This has also shown to help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol. A recent study has also shown that drinking 34 ounces of water daily lowers the risk of developing high blood sugar. This study found that people who drank 34 ounces of water on a daily basis were 21% less likely to develop diabetes than those who consume 16 ounces or less per day. Researchers believe that dehydration causes in increase in a hormone called vasopressin which triggers blood sugar production in the liver, causing your blood sugar levels to raise.
Cancer -You are advised to avoid the new higher-priced wrinkle-free clothes as they usually contain perflurochemicals (PFCs). These chemicals are believed to be harmful to reproduction and development, and are also linked to several cancers. PFCs are frequently used in garments labeled as "permanent press" or "wrinkle-free." However, the problem is, these chemicals are believed to remain in the same form in the body as they are unable to be further broken down or eliminated, once they are absorbed through the body.
Although the repeatedly washing of clothes automatically helps to get rid of some of these chemicals, washing doesn't remove all this chemical from wrinkle- free or permanent press garments. The best way to avoid PCFs in your clothes is to buy clothes that are made from 100% natural fibers such as cotton, wool, or even bamboo.
To summarize, every single day we are bombarded with new and sometimes unthinkable medical findings, however, some of these findings are not always confirmed by FDA or other regulatory bodies. Because of this, you are advised to always do your own follow-up on all you have read or heard on the news -- including this bit of information provided above.
