Smith – who is also the director of research at the Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University in England – said that having many sexual partners also increases your risk of getting STDs. The study suggests an association, but it didn’t prove that having more sexual partners throughout one’s lifetime was directly responsible for the greater likelihood of developing cancer.

But data indicates a link between “a more promiscuous lifestyle” and other behaviors that may increase your risk of being diagnosed with cancer. For example, male and female volunteers with more sexual partners were often younger and unmarried. They were also more likely to smoke and consume alcohol frequently.

Robert Edwards, a professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, said that habits like smoking and alcohol consumption both increased the risk for cancer, along with certain STDs.

Smith also offered a suggestion for people with very active sex lives, saying that those who have had “risky sexual encounters” must consult their health care providers to get checked for potential STDs and discuss how to minimize this risk. Smith concluded that using “appropriate protection” is one of the most effective methods of lowering your risk of related cancers.

#Women with more than 10 #sexual #partners have a greater risk of being diagnosed with #cancer

Most people know that having multiple sexual partners puts you at risk for various sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Now, according to an alarming study published in the journal BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health, researchers have discovered that women who have multiple sexual partners are also more likely to be diagnosed with cancer.

If things continue the way they are, there will eventually be no more #humans Then we have #pesticides like #Roundup (#glyphosate), which is widely used in American agriculture to increase profits.

Roundup causes cancer, among other harm, and yet regulators could not care less.

“These are hormonally active in many, many ways, depending on the particular formation,” Swan says. “They get into our foods. They’ve also been found in people who are handling these products occupationally.”

All of this combined with a more sedentary lifestyle has turned many men into testosterone-deficient blobs who chug beer, another estrogen enhancer, while sitting around all the time.

This is not the way men were designed to live, and yet modern America tells them to do all of the wrong things and none of the right things, which is killing off their ability to reproduce.

Being fat is perhaps the most damaging thing for a man’s body in perpetuity because fat is where EDCs are stored. As a man loses weight, many of these EDCs are then released, causing more problems.

Men who eat organic food fare better than those who do not, however EDCs can still be hidden even in organic products depending on how they were manufactured or how they are stored.

“We can’t buy our way out of this problem,” Swan warns. “We also can’t recycle our way out of this problem. We need much more fundamental changes.”

Such changes include ridding society of every single noxious chemical out there that provides no benefits to humans other than increased profits for Big Chemical. Most chemicals are never proven safe before being approved, and the consequence is widespread illness and infertility.

“I think the more that we can show effects on people’s health right now – increased obesity, more erectile dysfunction, less sexual satisfaction, more menstrual problems – the more they’ll listen,” says Swan about how to reach more people about this important issue.

Legal and ethical questions

Conversely, xenobots raise legal and ethical concerns. In the same way they could help target cancers, they could also be used to hijack life functions for malevolent purposes.

Some argue artificially making living things is unnatural, hubristic, or involves “playing God”.

A more compelling concern is that of unintended or malicious use, as we have seen with technologies in fields including nuclear physics, chemistry, biology and AI.

For instance, xenobots might be used for hostile biological purposes prohibited under international law.

More advanced future xenobots, especially ones that live longer and reproduce, could potentially “malfunction” and go rogue, and out-compete other species.

For complex tasks, xenobots may need sensory and nervous systems, possibly resulting in their sentience. A sentient programmed organism would raise additional ethical questions. Last year, the revival of a disembodied pig brain elicited concerns about different species’ suffering.

The myth, the legend

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, became known as an immune-boosting supernutrient after two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling touted the substance’s supposed benefits in a series of books, Live Science previously reported. Pauling claimed that taking large doses of vitamin C could not only prevent the common cold, but also help thwart more severe illnesses like cancer and heart disease.

Since Pauling published his books, in the 1970s, his bolder claims have not stood up to scientific scrutiny. However, recent research does suggest that vitamin C supplements reduce the duration of colds in the general population, according to a 2013 review of several dozen studies.

The review found that vitamin C supplements taken during a cold can reduce the duration of the illness by 8% in adults and 14% in children. Practically, that means that supplementing vitamin C can shorten the duration of a cold by about one day. Participants in each study supplemented vitamin C for varying periods, but generally, the daily dose was at least 200 milligrams.

Several of the reviewed studies included people under intense physical stress, including marathon runners and soldiers training in the Arctic. Among these individuals, those who took vitamin C were about half as likely to catch a cold as those who did not take such supplements. But in the general population, the supplements did not prevent the common cold.

Likewise, no evidence suggests that vitamin C supplements can help prevent COVID-19, Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Tennessee, told New York Times Parenting.

“If there’s going to be an advantage, it’s going to be very modest,” Schaffner said.

Some scientists are testing if vitamin C could alleviate symptoms and improve outcomes for patients with COVID-19 — if given in a high enough dose. Researchers at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University launched a clinical trial with 140 patients in February to test whether ultrahigh doses of vitamin C, delivered intravenously, could treat the viral infection more effectively than a placebo. The test group will receive infusions twice a day for seven days, with each infusion containing 12g of vitamin C. (The daily recommendation for an adult man is only 90mg.)

The trial will be completed in September, and no results are yet available, according to ClinicalTrials.gov. In the meantime, Chinese scientists have launched dozens of other clinical trials as well, testing everything from antivirals to antibody therapies to traditional Chinese medicines.

Demi shared another eye-popping snap from her Maldives holiday on Thursday as she posed in a thong bikini.

The model wowed as she posed on a beach swing in a white thong bikini which revealed her pert posterior.

Demi’s trip to the Maldives was documented in forensic detail with the model sharing a series of stunning videos and snaps from her time in paradise.

She recently proved her stunning look doesn’t come easy as she took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal how she hones her peachy bottom.

The Birmingham-born beauty used the help of her favoured aesthetician Shane Cooper to bust cellulite as she underwent a treatment while sporting a thong.

Demi lay on a bed while Shane used a wand to remove the cellulite, while she added the tune of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 hit Dreams.

Despite her enviable jet-setting lifestyle that most people can only dream of, the social media star recently revealed that she has struggled with her mental health this year after losing both of her parents.

Demi lost her father Barrie Mawby at the end of 2018, with tragedy striking again soon after when her mother Christine passed away in June 2019.

In September, she emotionally discussed how she copes with her ongoing grief on Sky News with Kay Burley, in a bid to raise mental health awareness on World Suicide Prevention Day.

The lingerie model said: ‘Well, my mother, when I was 17, she had a heart attack which caused a stroke and it left her disabled.

‘Then in 2018, my dad passed away from cancer, then my mum, after being sick for so long, she passed away from a stomach infection. So it was really hard.’

On how she deals with the grief, Demi said: ‘I mean, it was really difficult, I’ve gone through stages of feeling my worst and now I’m at a place where I feel a lot better. It just takes time really.

‘I have some amazing friends and I do meditation. I have a lot of faith, so I pray and sound healing. I love sound healing.’ Read More!!

Ms Acevedo had worked at IPO Porto, a national and international reference health institution in cancer treatment, research and education, for more than 10 years.

She lived with her family in Maia near Porto but died at her partner’s home in Trofa half an hour’s drive north of the northern Portuguese city.

She changed her profile pic on Facebook shortly after her jab to post a selfie with a face mask on and the message: ‘Covid-19 vaccinated.’

Her father told Portuguese press he got the call to say she had been found dead around 11am last Friday morning hours after they ate together on New Years Eve, adding: ‘My daughter left home and I never saw her alive again.’

Ms Acevedo’s daughter Vania Figueredo said her mum had only complained about the ‘normal’ discomfort in the area where she was jabbed but was otherwise fine.

The health worker was one of 538 Porto IPO workers who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Portugal’s Ministry of Health has been informed.

Portugal, with a population of just over 10 million, has reported 7,118 deaths and more than 427,000 cases.

After a relatively mild first wave, cases rose sharply in the second and have spiked again since Christmas.
