These Are The 6 Most Common Signs Of Ovarian Cancer That Are Overlooked and Missed!

I truly hate alarmist health reports, but when I came upon the video you are about to watch below, I did become a bit scared as I had been experiencing several of the symptoms discussed.  It is an unfortunate fact that generally speaking, most women are unaware, that OVARIAN CANCER does have symptoms associated with it.  More people do know that it is known as one of the “Silent Cancers”, that gets diagnosed too late to prevent death.

The truth is that approximately 22,280 women in the United States will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year and 14,240 women will die.  It is not, however, true that there aren’t any symptoms that can forewarn women to go see their doctor, and be tested to rule out the possibility of ovarian cancer.

This cancer starts in the ovaries, and if not caught in the early stages, can spread to the rest of the reproductive system.  The problem lies in the fact that symptoms of ovarian cancer get overlooked, because they can be associated with many less harmful health disorders.

If you have some of the symptoms that might be associated with Ovarian Cancer, ruling out the possibility, is a worthwhile action. Information is power!

There are 6 Commonly Missed Signs of Ovarian Cancer: 

The first is a SWOLLEN OR BLOATED ABDOMEN.  This bloating occurs as a result of a fluid, called “ascites”, getting trapped in the abdominal cavity.  Unfortunately, this symptom occurs in the later phase of the progression of ovarian cancer, and obviously can be a symptom of many less serious health problems.  If this symptom occurs along with a couple of the other ones discussed, it would be prudent to see your doctor.

The second potential sign is a PERSISTENT PAIN IN THE ABDOMEN OR PELVIS.  Severe and unrelenting pain in this area, that goes on for a few days, should not be ignored!  It is a clearer sign that could be indicative of OVARIAN CYSTS or OVARIAN CANCER.

Women have hormones that control metabolism.  If these hormones get disrupted by ovarian cancer, a woman will experience the third often missed sign, which is a FEELING OF BEING FULL FASTER that can lead to DIFFICULTY EATING AS MUCH AS USUAL.

A fourth potentially missed sign of ovarian cancer may be an INCREASED NEED TO URINATE.  This occurs as a result of the buildup of the fluid discussed above, which presses on the bladder.  The problem, yet again, of this symptom being missed (by patients and doctors alike) as a symptom of ovarian cancer, is that bladder problems are a “normal health issue” that so many women experience.

When ovarian cancer spreads to the Colon, it can cause constipation or diarrhea.  This fifth potential missed sign of a change in BOWEL MOVEMENTS can also be a result of the fluid buildup pressing on the bowels.

For women who are pre-menopausal, a sixth potentially missed symptom of ovarian cancer that can be associated with other health issues, is SPOTTING BETWEEN PERIODS.  This is never normal if it persists, and should be immediately looked into.

Having one or two of the symptoms, that have been discussed, can obviously be attributed to a health problem that isn’t as serious as ovarian cancer.  Having one or two of these symptoms is common for many women, which is why the diagnosis of ovarian cancer gets overlooked until it is too late.

The testimony of the women in the video below, speaks to the notion, that it is better to be safe than sorry.

THIS Is Why You Should Stop Using Tampons Immediately. THIS Reason Is Scary!

The menstrual period is a monthly occurrence for every healthy woman, from the onset of puberty in teenage years, until the completion of menopause.  Dealing with menstruation, involves choosing a method of containing the bleeding, so that we can go about our lives with ease.

The choices that are available are: sanitary napkins, the cup and tampons.  Most of us have been alerted to the dangers of leaving a tampon in place for too long…more than eight hours leaves you susceptible to “Toxic Shock Syndrome”.  This danger first came to light in 1980, where 814 cases of TSS were reported; 38 of which resulted in DEATH.

The response of the tampon industry was to pull many brands which were deemed unsafe.  The video you are about to watch below does a good job of explaining the serious dangers inherent in all tampons.  One of the most startling facts is that tampons are bleached, in order to appear extremely white and “sanitary”.

However, the concern for appearance, is in fact extremely unhealthy; you are inserting bleach into your body and letting it sit there for hours on end.  Additionally, the fact that a foreign body is often forgotten past the 8 hour limit, makes it a host for deadly bacteria such as Staphylococcus!

If You Eat This Popular Summer Food You Need To Stop Because It’s Extremely Cancer-Causing!

So, Memorial Day Weekend just past, the unofficial kick-off of Summer!  What does that mean to most Americans?…BARBECUE TIME!  The most popular food for barbecuing, without question, is the almighty HOT DOG!  They are without a doubt delicious, which leads people in the US to eat approximately 7 billion hot dogs, in the summertime alone! Hot dogs are a processed meat, and as with all processed meats, they are unhealthy.

I hate to burst your bubble, but as you will hear in the video you are about to watch below, EATING HOT DOGS PUTS YOUR HEALTH IN SERIOUS DANGER! Although, some hot dog sausages may not be as unhealthy as others, by and large these mixtures of pork, beef and chicken meat also contain fillers, additives and preservatives.  Most of the cheaper brands use parts of animals that aren’t “choice”, which includes legs, claws and fat.

The additives are unhealthy…large amounts of salt, monosodium glutamate, corn syrup and some use a substance known as CARMINE. Carmine is made of powdered insect bodies that are boiled in a sodium carbonate solution or ammonia!

I haven’t even gotten to the worst part yet, if you can believe it?!  Hot dogs contain CANCER-CAUSING NITRITES, which is also found in other processed meat.  According to research done at the University of Hawaii these Nitrites raise your chances of developing PANCREATIC CANCER by 67%!!  This is nothing to be scoffed at!

There are many other delicious and healthy things that can be barbecued, and traditions should be enjoyed, but not at the risk of your’s and your family’s health!

Check out the video which makes this message quite clear and so important.

If You Have a Pair of Crocs, You Should Toss Them In The Trash Now.

Here we are in the heat of summer in many parts of the world, trying to stay cool and comfortable.  As we navigate the imposing heat outside we not only wear more breathable clothes, but our footwear needs to allow our feet to breathe.  Sandals have been the answer for hundreds, if not thousands of years…but they have evolved in modern times.

“Flip flops” have been around for many years, as well as the infamous “Crocs” that became the summer “go-to” more recently.  For quite some time, the medical profession has warned about the dangers of flip flops, for the very reason people love them…ease of putting them on and slipping them off.  They have now issued a serious safety warning about wearing Crocs as well, as an all day replacement for shoes.

When Crocs were introduced to the public, the company promoted them as not only comfortable, but actually possessing benefits for the feet that were therapeutic.  They made these claims without any research to back them up.  The problem lies in wearing these footwear all day, according to podiatrist Dr. Tom Beasley, because without containing a shank they provide no support for the foot.  For children, who are still growing, the instability of Crocs can cause bone deformities and splayed feet.  As children grow, so do their bones and tendons in their feet, requiring footwear that is supportive.

As you will hear in the VIDEO you are about to watch below,  Crocs can pose the safety hazard of getting caught on ESCALATORS, causing serious injuries.  There have been multiple reports of such injuries, resulting in law suits against the Crocs company.  Unstable shoes like Crocs and flip flops have been known to get caught on gas pedals and brakes in cars as well, resulting in automobile accidents.  After watching the footage below, let us know what you think about wearing this footwear out in the world.

If Your Vehicle Is Sinking Fast Underwater THIS Is What You Have To Do To Live and Survive

For many of us, the thought of being trapped in a sinking car has crossed our minds. What would we do, how would we react, would we be able to make it out alive? That kind of stuff is what nightmares are made of, but for some people that nightmare could one day become a reality.

Think about it, all that it takes is one brief moment. Perhaps you’re driving down the road and become distracted, when you look up it’s too late and you end up crashing into a pond. Or maybe a deer suddenly pops out of nowhere. Without even thinking you instinctively swerve to avoid hitting it and in the process you end up losing control of the car.

If you end up in a lake, river, stream, marsh, or whatever body of water it may be, your car is going to immediately start sinking. Water will rush in and it will quickly begin to fill the interior passenger compartment space up. What do you do?

Many people have no idea what to do if they find themselves in this type of situation. As much as you may have thought about it, when it comes down to it you’re likely panicking and not thinking about what the best course of action is.

The obvious thing you’ll want to do is get out of the car as quickly as you possibly can. To help yourself escape as fast as possible, the first thing you should do is roll down the window while simultaneously taking off your seat belt. Rolling down the window and removing your seat belt is crucial because all that water may cause the computerized electronic equipment in your car to short out or completely malfunction. If that happens, you will likely be unable to roll down electric windows or disengage your safety belt.

Being trapped in a sinking car with the windows up is virtually impossible to escape from. At that point you’d need to break a window to get out. You won’t be able to open the door, even if it is unlocked the sheer pressure from the surrounding water makes it impossible to force open, you’d basically need to have superhuman strength. Only a special tool designed to break car glass windows will work. You can find these online and keep one in your car, but overall the best option is to roll your window down asap!

The next step after getting the window down and your seat belt off is to get out of the car as quickly as you can. Oftentimes people in sinking cars have less than one minute to both react and get out. In addition, if there are any young children in the back seat they will need help getting out from an adult.

They should first be taken out of their car seats and then passed through the front window, but only after it has been rolled down and the adult’s seat belt has been unbuckled. For any passengers in the back seat of a car that has either no operable windows or ones that don’t roll all the way down, they will have to work their way to the front and go out either the driver or passenger side windows. Here are some additional tips:

Never call 911, you will be wasting precious time where you should be escaping and it will be too late by the time help arrives.  Don’t panic. You have to react immediately and freezing up will get you killed. Every second counts and the instant you hit the water the clock starts ticking.

Watch this ABC News clip. It will show you exactly what to expect if and when you should ever have to escape from a sinking car. It also offers an inside-view of what a sinking car will look like and the experts take us through a number of scenarios. They show you how to get out from the front drivers seat, from the rear passenger seat, and how to help get little kids out as well.

If Your Dog Follows and Always Goes Into The Bathroom With You THIS Is What It Means.

image via – shutterstock.com

One of the greatest joys of life is having an amazing dog as a loyal companion. There is nothing better than coming home after a long hard day and being greeted by your pup who has been eagerly awaiting your return all day!

Dogs tend to follow their owners every where they go. Whether it’s a hike outside or just going from room to room inside of your house. It is great to have a little fur baby follow you everywhere but sometimes it can be a bit much especially when it comes to going to the bathroom!

Little did you know, when your pup follows you in the bathroom there is a deeper and hidden meaning. Whether you know it or not your furry little companion is always trying to communicate with you. Before we get into why a dog follows you into the bathroom let’s go over some other strange behaviors dog’s do which also have a deeper meaning.

First, if you come home and your house is completely destroyed and messed up your dog is trying to tell you that they are either super bored or suffering from anxiety because they can’t cope with you being gone. Luckily there are professional dog behavior specialists you can bring your dog to so that you can figure out why they are tearing your house apart and what you can do to stop this negative behavior.

A lot of times they just need you to show them a little more love with hugs and cuddles or maybe they  just need you to take them on a longer walk everyday!

Second, if you notice your dog keeps hunching over there is a reason for this. The dog is trying to minimize their size because they are scared of someone or something. If they are doing the hunch over when nothing scary is around it could mean that they were traumatized or abused when they were young pups before you adopted them.

The best bet is to talk softly and be gentle and kind to them until they stop hunching over and feel comfortable again in their environment and surroundings.

Third, if you see your pup raise their paw you may want to just step aside and get out of their way. Before dogs were domesticated they would raise their paws before lunging and hunting their prey! This behavior is still imprinted in them, and if your dog is really small maybe just get out of their way to be polite!

The fourth strange behavior is when your pup brings you a dead bird or mouse and leaves it on the floor or even worse in your bed. It can be super creepy but don’t be alarmed, your fur baby is trying to give you a gift. If your dog isn’t the killing type, they may just bring you an inanimate object such as one of their toys or dog bones. Again, just to be clear they are just trying to be thoughtful by giving you a present to show you their appreciation and love.

In the worst case scenario your dog may bring you their poop or you may notice they are eating their poop. If this is happening there is a good chance they are desperately seeking more attention from you. They could be anxious or extremely stressed. If this unwanted behavior keeps occurring over and over again it would be a good idea to bring them to your local vet or a professional dog behavior specialist to get to the bottom of the underlying issue and fix it.

The fifth behavior is when a dog sits on your feet to keep you warm or move closer to you on your lap. The closer they get to you usually means something is scaring them and they want your protection. The closer they get the more scared they may be.

The sixth behavior is a dog that just keeps on yawning. They tend to do this when you have strangers over at your place that they are unfamiliar with. If the yawning continues they are basically saying they are not comfortable with this strange human in the house.

The seventh behavior also has to do with a dog yawning but this one is a bit different. If your dog sees you yawn and then they immediately copy you and yawn back they are displaying signs of empathy and love for you. On the flip side, they may actually just be tired and need to take a nice relaxing nap and get some shut eye.

The eighth behavior is the dog lean which is similar to when they sit on your lap. They are leaning on you because they don’t particularly feel safe and are seeking security from their human. Again on the flip side they could be leaning on you just because they want to cuddle and get some head and belly rubs.

The ninth odd behavior happens at night right before they go to bed. You may have noticed your pup circling and digging around their bed excessively. Have no worries this is completely normal behavior and your dog is not losing their mind! This behavior is a remnant from when they were wild dogs before they were domesticated.

In the wild they would circle and dig to make themselves dog nests before getting some rest and sleep. They also would dig these nests to make sure no creepy critters or snakes were in the area and they could have a good rest without being disturbed.

The tenth behavior is when your dog comes right up to you and looks you directly in the eyes. Do not be freaked out if they are sitting there for an extended period of time trying to make eye contact with you. The best thing you can do is look right back into their eyes.

By staring into your eyes your dog is telling you how much they love you. In China studies were done and they found that when you make eye contact with your dog oxytocin and other feel good hormones are released in their bodies. So basically you are giving them a nice boost of feel good energy!

The eleventh behavior is when a dog repeatedly sneezes. You may not think much of it, but they are trying to engage with you as they try to tell you it’s playtime and they want to have some fun!

The twelfth odd behavior comes during and after bath time. If you have ever tried to give your dog a bath, you know that it can be quite the ordeal and a lot of times they don’t make it easy. The reason for this is pretty adorable. Dogs don’t like the smell of being clean so after you shampoo and wash them you may see them running around and rolling on the ground to try to get that fresh soapy smell off them!

The thirteenth behavior is something a lot of people aren’t too fond of and think it’s pretty gross and nasty. This common dog behavior is licking people. This is your pups way of  communicating to you that they are being submissive. It also is a way for them to relieve built up stress and tension.

The final and fourteenth strange behavior we are going to go over is when your dog follows you into the bathroom. Most people like to have privacy and be alone when they are in the bathroom doing a number 1 or number 2. However if you have a dog you know that almost every time you head towards the bathroom they follow right behind you and make sure they get inside the bathroom with you while you do your thing.

Dogs tend to go everywhere with you but when they follow you into the bathroom they are telling you something very specific. They are communicating to you that they are completely devoted to you and you’re the most important thing in their lives! So at first it might seem a little weird or creepy but just know your dog has the best intentions when they watch you do your thing on the toilet.

Hopefully this shined some light and you learned a good amount about your dog’s strange behaviors!
