We had written a post on now that I'm fifty and many of the men where happy we never talked about
them having serious issues at that prime age. It is with a sad heart that I like to inform you that men especial African American men are very susceptible to prostate cancer at this age. Today's write up is centered on men this time.

The prostate is a part of the male reproductive organ found at the exist of the bladder. Prostate cancer could be trace down to family genes. If ones father or brother had prostate cancer, there's a likelihood one could be susceptible. It is common among among elderly men and common among men who like fatty food.

Possible symptoms are urinary problem (having little urine, finding it difficult to start or stop urine, frequently urinating etc), erectile dysfunction, blood in urine or semens, pain in the back, pelvic or lower abdomen etc.

The possible treatment could take surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy and vaccine that hinders cancerous growth
It is diagnosed by tissue biopsy. Initial examination may include rectal examination, ultrasonic scan and PSA (Prostate specific antigen) level.

It is good practice for one to always examine him/herself. PSA is done yearly and rectal examination is highly recommend to patient with high PSA level.

When one is 50 years, medical check up should be an habit. One TCM contribution to cancer is found in Ginseng and Ganoderma Lucidium. Some TCM company made theirs in form of tea. They are food supplement that helps in curbing cancer. Organo-Gold coffee uses them in their coffee and it's de-caffeinated. They call it healthy coffee. If you have the TCM mobile app, you could choose from a variety of healthy coffee and ginseng tea. They are mushroom with good health benefit. If  you push the buy button on the TCM mobile app, it takes you to an online stores that offers payment on delivery. You could read about the product you order on the store and the disclaimers. One of which is TCM doesn't encourage patients to miss their doctors appointment. We could be viewed as dietician. For more about TCM and orthodox practices read our post on it.

Palm wine and Measles

Measles is a respiratory disease that is highly communicable. It is transmitted by the mucus or saliva of an infected patent. It is airborne and could be transmitted when an affected persons sneezes or cough to the air. It is common among children but on a rare case adult contact it also. It's a very big cause of child mortality. World health organization (WHO) had recorded more than 100,000 children less than the ages of 5 whose life had been claimed by measles in 2016.

One traditional way of treating measles is through Palm wine especial among adult. They drink and sometimes pour a little in their bucket of water when having their bath. Children uses coconut water instead of palm wine because of the alcoholic content of Palm wine. I like us to examine these practice to be sure if Palm wine really helps to solve measles or it's just a myth.

Vaccine is usually given to children against measles called measles vaccine. No particular chemotherapy against measles but supportive ca…

Smiling would feel good when you gaze through the mirror and you obverse your teeth. How do you feel when after smiling, your smile starts trending as a subject of humor on social media because of teeth coloration. It is worth noting  that the true color of the teeth dentin is yellow. The more you age, the outer part of the teeth called enamel gets worn out revealing the true color of the teeth but they are other factor that also contribute to teeth coloration which are majorly centered on life style. 
One which is worthy of note is fluoride intake. Due to environmental factors, one could come in contact with it in drinking water. or should we start another behavioral communication against the use of tooth paste because we know sodium fluoride is one of the key compound of some toothpaste. should we start a campaign on using chewing stick rather than toothbrush? Some research have it that chewing stick has revealed parallel and at times greater mechanical and chemical cleansing of o…
