The man who lost his sight every time he had sex

The man who lost his sight every time he had sex – A man was forced to seek medical help after going temporarily blind every time he had sex.

The unnamed patient would lose his sight every time he climaxed during intercourse.

Bafflingly, the blindness would never occur while performing any other strenuous exercise, the NCBI ROFL blog claimed.

The original report, published by the Department of Ophthalmology at Glostrup Hospital, University of Copenhagen, revealed the cause of the cition to be vasoconstriction, where the muscle walls contract around a blood vessel, restricting the flow of blood.

Vasoconstriction is the same condition that causes erectile dysfunction.

Doctors had earlier speculated that an embolism was causing the man’s blindness.

The report said: ‘Hypothetical mechanisms of transient monocular visual loss in our patient include vasoconstriction or embolism in the arterial blood supply of the eye.

‘The repeated and completely transient nature of our patient’s symptoms supports the fact that embolism was not involved.’

The patient was eventually treated using drugs to widen his blood vessels.

NCBI ROFL is a blog written by two PhD students in Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley.

It features scientific articles with humourous subjects from the PubMed medical database. (dailymail )

Teen idol Justin Bieber says he plans to go to university

Teen idol Justin Bieber says he plans to go to university – Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber said Monday he plans to go to university, even after selling millions of albums by the age of just 16 after being discovered on YouTube.

“I always travel with a private tutor who I have five three-hour sessions a week with,” he told a news conference in Madrid where he is promoting his third album “My Worlds: The Collection”.

“I want to finish high school and also university and then evolve wherever my music takes me. I also want to stick my head in the movie world although I am going to focus on my music for now.”

About 5,000 people flocked to a Bieber autograph session at a record store in downtown Madrid on Monday despite the rain and cold, the online edition of daily newspaper El Mundo reported.

The singer, who will perform for the first time in Spain in April 2011, won all four awards he was nominated for at the American Music Awards last week, including favourite artist, making him the youngest ever winner of the trophy.

The turning point for Bieber came in 2007 when his mother posted home-made videos of him performing cover songs from Usher, Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder on YouTube for friends and family to see.

The videos ended up attracting a wider audience and Usher ultimately signed Bieber to RBMG/Island Def Jam.

The teenager, whose hits include “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Love Me”, currently has 15 million fans on Facebook and six million followers on Twitter.

“I will never close my accounts on Facebook and Twitter because it is a way to interact with my fans,” he said. ( Agence France Presse. )

Gonorrhea rate at an all-time low, but syphilis and chlamydia rates continue to rise

Gonorrhea rate at an all-time low, but syphilis and chlamydia rates continue to rise – The rate of gonorrhea in the United States is at an all-time low, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday, but the rates for chlamydia and syphilis continue to rise. The three sexually transmitted diseases, orSTDs, together account for about 1.5 million cases annually, less than 10% of the country’s estimated 19 million cases. But they are the only ones that must be reported to CDC by doctors because they have such potentially serious consequences.

Herpes and human papillomavirus account for the bulk of the remaining STD infections.


All three are bacterial diseases that can be readily treated with antibiotics. Left untreated, however, they can have serious consequences. Gonorrhea and chlamydia can produce pelvic inflammatory disease in women, which can cause infertility. Each year, about 24,000 U.S. women become infertile as a result. Syphilis can cause brain, cardiovascular and organ damage. In pregnant women, it can cause congenital syphilis, which can cause stillbirth, death soon after birth and physical deformities and neurological complications in children who survive. Untreated, it causes infant death in as many as 40% of infants. Lack of treatment of the infections also appears to increase the risk of contracting HIV. (articles.latimes.com )

Shots, Hygiene Can Help Shield Kids From Flu

Shots, Hygiene Can Help Shield Kids From Flu – There are a number of ways parents can protect their children during flu season, experts say.

The best defense is to get children vaccinated, according to doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the American Academy of Pediatrics. They also offered other tips on how to prevent the spread of flu germs:

  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue. If a tissue isn’t handy, bend your arm and sneeze or cough into it. Teach your children to do this.
  • Use tissues to wipe runny noses and throw tissues in the garbage after each use. People who are coughing or sneezing frequently should wear a mask.
  • Don’t kiss your child on or around the mouth or face if either of you are ill.
  • Always thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm water before and after coming into close contact with someone with the flu.
  • Don’t allow children to share pacifiers, cups, spoons, forks, washcloths or towels. Never share toothbrushes.
  • Use hot, soapy water or the dishwasher to wash dishes and utensils.
  • Flu viruses can live for more than 30 minutes on surfaces. Use soap and hot water or a disinfectant to clean all surfaces, including toys, countertops, toilet handles and doorknobs.
  • Replace cloth towels often and launder them in hot water.
  • Protect children from secondhand smoke, which can increase their risk for respiratory illness. ( HealthDay News )

Don’t Take a Holiday From Exercise

Don’t Take a Holiday From Exercise — If you don’t have time to get to the gym during the holidays, you can incorporate exercise into your daily activities, an expert says.

“It’s important to maintain your fitness as much as possible during the holidays, but don’t worry if you’re too busy to go to the gym. Many holiday activities offer ways to get the 30 minutes of daily moderate physical activity that your body needs to help fight off many forms of cancer and other diseases,” Karen Basen-Engquist, a professor in the behavioral science department at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, said in a center news release.

She offered the following tips for incorporating walking into your shopping trips:

Park far from the mall or store entrance. If you take the train or bus, get off a stop or two early. When you’re inside the mall or store, use the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. If possible, carry your purchases instead of using a shopping cart. This will help boost your heart rate and strengthen your muscles.

For walking to count as exercise, you should be a little out of breath and feel your heart beating a little faster. You should be able to talk in short sentences, but not sing holiday songs,” Basen-Engquist said.

You can get an aerobic workout while preparing the house for guests and cleaning up after they leave. Focus on chores that use large muscle groups, such as the legs and back. These include vacuuming, mopping, scrubbing, gardening and making multiple trips upstairs to put away laundry or holiday decorations.

“The most important thing is to get your heart rate up at a consistent level. You should sustain activity for at least 10 minutes without stopping,” Basen-Engquist said. ( HealthDay News )


She also offered tips for exercise while traveling:

  • While waiting for a plane, train or bus, take a brisk walk around the terminal.
  • If you’re driving, add physical activity to gas and bathroom breaks. For example, toss a Frisbee, kick a ball, or take a vigorous walk.
  • Take advantage of gyms and exercise classes offered by many hotels. If these aren’t available, use an exercise DVD or explore the local area by going for a walk, jog or hike.

Mammals ‘exploded’ in size after dinosaurs’ demise

Mammals ‘exploded’ in size after dinosaurs’ demise – The size of mammals “exploded” after the sudden demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, say biologists.

They did so because there were no other animals around to eat the plants, according to research published in the journal Science.

The biggest mammals jumped in size 1,000-fold from a maximum of about 22lb (10kg) at the time of the dinosaurs to some 17 tons (17 tonnes) within 25 million years.

Dr. Jessica Theodor, associate professor of biology at Calgary University in Canada, said: “Basically, the dinosaurs disappear and all of a sudden there is nobody else eating the vegetation.

“That’s an open food source and mammals start going for it, and it’s more efficient to be an herbivore when you’re big.”

She added: “Within 25 million years the system is reset to a new maximum for the animals that are there in terms of body size. That’s actually a pretty short time frame, geologically speaking. That’s really rapid evolution.”

She and colleagues came to their conclusions after documenting maximum size for major land mammal groups on each continent.

The largest mammal ever to have walked the earth was a hornless rhinoceros-like herbivore that stood about 18ft (5.5m) high at the shoulder, which lived in Eurasia almost 34 million years ago.

However, even they are dwarfed by today’s blue whales, mammals that can weight more than 200 tons. ( telegraph )
