This technique involves the use of leeches to heal wounds and those too European medical leeches! This therapy dates back to ancient times but is still widely acclaimed because leeches are used as an ailment for problems such as blood blotting and relieving swelling, for problems where blood flow needs to be stimulated, and then again for various sorts of osteoarthritis (whatever that is)! It got popular in 1990’s and since then it is very popular various countries!

10 Things to do With Used Aluminium Cans

10 Misconceptions about Cancer

I am sure you guys are familiar with this disease. In medical terms it is known as ‘malignant neoplasm’. The disease has many different forms but all of them have to do with unregulated cell growth. The cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumors that invade the body parts. The cancer can spread in different parts of your body and it doesn’t matter where it originated. Not every cancer forms a tumor for example Leukemia. Also, you should know that not every tumor is ‘cancerous’. Of course, most of us are not doctors and therefore do not know much about this disease. I am here to tell you about ten common misconceptions regarding cancer that people have had in their minds for a while.

10. ONE CANCER ONLY

The first misconception on the list is that every cancer is the same. When they say ‘cure for cancer’ they do not necessarily mean that one drug will end cancer and people make the mistake of believing so therefore giving a rise to the misconception that essentially cancer is just one disease. There are many different types of cancer and I am sure you know that. There are many cancers that are still undiscovered. A lot of cancers that we are aware of today were nowhere near the medical vocabulary some years ago. The cure for cancer also depends on the needs of the patient and exactly what part of his or her body is suffering from virus. A few examples of cancer include skin cancer, lung cancer, mouth cancer, bone marrow cancer and breast cancer.

This article describes the ten really weird side effects that you are probably seeing for the first time.

10. SENSE OF SMELL

In order to treat congestive heart and control high blood pressures, more often than not, Vasotec is prescribed. While this drug can have an impact on all your senses, the one that takes the most severe hit is your sense of smell. Yes, this drug renders you incapable of smelling for the period in which you are under the side effect. It wears off of course. But wouldn’t it be weird if you can’t smell for an entire day or something?
