  • Bronchitis? Or Something Else?

    I recently was admitted into the hospital for Bronchitis and asthma. I tried to treat the condition at home but it got to the point to where I just couldn't get ahead breathing wise and no matter what I did I couldn't take any air in. I'm 33 weeks pregnant and was having sinus tachycardia and still am. After being admitted I was told they'd have to keep me because my lab work came back strange and they wanted to monitor me. My white blood cell count was 17000 and my red blood cell....

    A Single Underlying Cause Hypotheses

    Cancer forms when too much mass builds up in a cell as a result of the body becoming overprotective. This overprotectiveness is caused by overeating or excessive consumption of one type of diet or substance. The cancer spreads from a single, cell nucleus, and clumps together as it spreads.

    New Research Finds Value in PSA Testing

    Re. the reanalysis of the U. S. test results from 2009: "To make an apples-to-apples comparison between the two, Etzioni and her colleagues made mathematical adjustments to account for these differences." This does not look like new research. It looks like someone decided to "reanalyze" the test to make the results fit what they already believed.

    Deciding not to get radiation after Breast Cancer

    Hello - My decision after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Details below. I was informed after my double mastectomy that the tumor they removed was non cancerous.
