It results in much quicker hair transplant procedure as it saves time for separating each follicular unit and less time is required for their placement. Hair Transplant New Jersey prevents iatrogenic injury to follicular units during the dissection phase.It lessens iatrogenic injury during placement phase because follicular groupings are not as fragile as follicular units because of more tissue attached to them.As this Hair Transplant Philadelphia proceeds at a faster rate, it allows the grafts to be left out of the body for a shorter period of time and increases their survival rates.
Botox in Philadelphia has been used in medicine, including cosmetic medicine, for more than a decade and proved to be safe and very effective treatment for various conditions. In the cosmetic field Botox in South Jersey is used primarily for treatment of facial wrinkles. It is also effective for migraine prevention and to control excessive sweating.
Popcorn asbestos ceiling was quite popular from the 1950′s to the 1980′s. Some of them actually didn’t contain asbestos, but many of them did. It seems unusual that this ceiling type was ever popular, but it was easy to apply, it dampened noise well, and it hid any imperfections that were underneath it.
Popcorn ceilings had some drawbacks – it was hard to clean and now it poses health risks. Nearly all materials used in building have paint, insulation, tiling, roofing and cement in them, and the asbestos seems to be ever-present, too.
If the ceiling in your home is “popcorn” and it was painted before the middle of the 1980′s, you probably are looking at asbestos as a hazard. If you want to get rid of your popcorn ceiling, and paint the resulting ceiling, you need to understand the risks that are involved.
When you scrape the popcorn to remove the paint, the asbestos from the paint will become airborne. If you breathe in those fibers, they can be cancer-causing, especially if you’re not ventilating the area. Even a few days of inhaling asbestos ceiling fibers can cause very serious health issues.
The ill effects that are caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers will usually develop within 15 to 40 years after the first inhalation. The most common asbestos-related diseases are mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. All these health problems are generally from asbestos inhalation over a long time period. But there have also been cases reported that short term exposure caused.
Although there has been much research about the harmful effects of materials like latex, plastic, and vinyl, the public is still far too unaware of the dangers of these materials that they use everyday. I, Fred Weiner, am a dentist in Chicago and have published several articles about these dangers and potential solutions two years ago. I have decided to revisit the issue in more detail to increase awareness. This is the first article in a seven part series outlining the basic make-ups of latex and vinyl and what exactly makes them so harmful to the everyday consumer, particularly healthcare workers, mothers and their children.
In its original form, latex is a sap-like fluid produced by over 12,000 plants, ranging from the dandelion to milkweed. Scientists can than make the liquid latex into a hydrocarbon polymer, or natural rubber, to make products like dentist gloves, pacifiers, baby bottles and balloons.
Although an all-natural substance, latex is actually the source of some serious side effects. The most common side effect is Natural Rubber Latex allergy, often referred to as NRL or Type-1 allergy. NRL is a systematic reaction to the proteins found in latex. Type IV, on the other hand, is a delayed reaction to the processing chemicals and occurs between 48 hours and 96 hours after initial exposure. The symptoms of NRL include hives, sneezing, cramps, headaches, and asthma. Some people have even more serious reactions, including anaphylactic shock.
The reason why some have NRL and some do not is unknown, but research has shown that those with more exposure to latex are far more likely to have symptoms. Those most likely to have NRL are health care workers, with 8%-17% suffering from the allergy, and children who need multiple surgeries, particularly for spina bifida, with up to 68% at risk.
Acute or even chronic insomnia affects the lives of thousands of us. Continued lack of sleep can be really debilitating. Sufferers, although unable to sleep at night, are listless and lacking in energy during the day. Remedies such as counting sheep or watching television late into the night tend to be ineffective so that most chronic insomniacs rely on sleeping pills. Those of us who lead stressful lives, and are stressed out by this, are the most likely to resort to taking pills to help us sleep. Prolonged use of sleeping pills is not, however, problem free. Rather, there are several unwanted side-effects. These can be summarised as the 3 D’s – Degradation, Dependence and Death.
Just like alcohol, sleeping pills can induce a hangover the morning after, along with short term memory loss and reduced activity in the brain cells. Over time these problems can build up leading to severe forgetfulness and a lack of purpose, something which really should be avoided in the work place.
Those who habitually use sleeping pills can build up a resistance to the drug so that the dose has to be upped to create the same effect. This spirals into real addiction to drugs such as benzodiazepines and is a really serious problem. Even more worryingly, there are even fatalities related to the consumption of sleeping pills. The medication usually lengthens the pauses in breathing while asleep, and in people already suffering from sleep apnoea this is particularly problematic. One of the side effects of sleep apnoea (a sleep disorder where breaths are actually missed during sleep) is insomnia so in combination with the drugs this can become a vicious cycle leading to death.
