Breast Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence

Breast cancer is the most common cancer and cancer related deaths among females in Australia. 

Breast cancer generally affects women after the age of 40 with 1  in 11 women being diagnosed before the age of 75. Research and medical intervention have come along way and survival rates are better than ever before. 

With the advances in today’s medical world, breast cancer is no longer a death sentence. Successful treatment is quite high, but early diagnosis is necessary.

Early diagnosis has been a big key at stabilising the mortality rates. Current advice is that women should ‘get to know their breasts’ and find out what’s ‘normal’ for them, rather than checking breasts in a regimented and prescriptive fashion.

Kill The Nasty Flu Virus With a Hot Drink

Kill The Nasty Flu Virus With a Hot Drink

Winter is fast approaching. This means the flu virus is on its way.

The problem with the flu virus is that it’s highly contagious and travels long and far. A powerful sneeze can cause the virus to travel 30 metres across the  room.

When we cough or sneeze, microscopic droplets of water and the virus enter the air. Dry, cold conditions in winter or an air conditioned office dry out the droplets, helping the virus linger in the air. The dry air also dries out nasal passages, which helps the virus stick.

That’s scary. If you are stuck in the office with just one of these flu ridden carriers, you could become easily infected if your immune system is not at full force.

A push for tighter and more wide spread antenatal screening during pregnancy was called for, when a recent study from the Australian research in northern Victoria showed that 80% of low-risk pregnant women have insufficient vitamin D levels. That’s right a staggering 80%.

The study involved 330 women attending routine antenatal clinics in Shepparton also found 28% have mild deficiency and 7% have moderate to severe deficiency during winter and drops to 12% and 3% respectively in the summer months.

So what is antenatal screening and why the sudden push?
