To smoke or not to smoke, inside: The controversy on banning smoking indoors in public places still goes on but for those pushing for the ban, the surgeon general has issued a statement of immeasurable support that suggests a ban on smoking in public places might not be enough.
According to the report of June, 2006, there is no safe level of secondhand smoke. Richard Carmona states that the health-damaging effects of secondhand smoke are far more extensive than previously thought and that there is no safe level.
Further, the report indicated that just separating smokers and non-smokers into separate rooms is not enough either. This means that, if you live with a smoker and they smoke in the house, you and your children are breathing an unsafe level
of secondhand smoke every day, even if they don't smoke in the same room with you. The effects on children are more serious, as their lungs are not fully developed. Secondhand smoke contributes to respiratory problems, asthma and ear infections in young children as well as putting them at risk for developing lung cancer later in life, if exposed longterm.
As far back as 1986, studies showed that secondhand smoke could cause lung cancer. Now, we realize that a lower level doesn't necessarily keep you safe from that threat, as a non-smoker. The conclusion of this latest report on the effects of secondhand smoke indicate that the only real solution is to eliminate indoor smoking altogether.
Symptoms of Cancer: Knowing them could save your life.
When cancer strikes different parts of the body, the symptoms of cancer vary. Some very common symptoms that may occur with different types of cancer include blood in urine, any unexplained weight loss, any unnatural bleeding and prolonged fever or fatique. Since these symptoms can also indicate other conditions, it's important to get testing if you have them.
In addition to some of the more common symptoms of cancer, there are others that are specific to a certain type of cancer.
Here are just a few symptoms to consider when assessing your need for medical testing.
Leukemia Symptoms: Enlarged lymph nodes, night sweats, bruising, joint pain or bone pain, generalized weakness, spleen or liver pain, or paleness.
Melanoma (an aggressive form of skin cancer) Symptoms: Any significant change in a wart, mole or skin bump. Any change in either the size, color, texture or normal shape of the mole or wart.
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Symptoms: Bone pain, abdominal swelling, enlargement of the spleen, painless lymph node swelling, small lumps under the skin, fatique or fever that is prolonged and unexplained, and unexplained weight loss.
Ovarian Cancer: This one is significant because a lot of women don't have noticable symptoms until the cancer has progressed to a dangerous stage so pay attention to the following: Persistent problems with digestion, abdominal swelling, and any abnormal bleeding.
