Morcellation of the Uterus is an oncologically flawed and dangerous practice. It is incredible that the gynecological community is accepting the practice as safe. For example, the incidence of occult leiomyosarcoma is 1/400 in women who undergo hysterectomy for presumed benign fibroid disease. Morcellation leads to conversion of an early stage, contained and potentially curable uterine cancers to a deadly stage 4 cancer; that is, sarcomatosis or carcinomatosis. Morcellation is virtually never part of the informed consent process. And even if it was, the incidence of occult uterine malignancy makes it a disastrous and unethical technique. Please refer to the following link to a petition to place an immediate moratorium on this terrible practice. It is your ethical responsibility to explore this issue and help stop it: https://www.change.o...ve-hysterectomy
Has anyone tried FetalGrowth app (App Store for iPhone/iPad) ? I'm interested in using a simple and handy tool to calculate fetal percentiles, and I came across this app, which seems it does the job (plots growth charts, as well). I haven't seen anything else, besides this app, so I was wondering if there are people who have already tried it.
’Scientists have somehow missed definitions of gender in human beings,” states Dr. Makarand Fulzele. Insights gained from years of practice as surgeon makes him wonder if indeed we have overlooked facts staring in our face. Nature has a tendency to hide many secrets but at the same time it provides enough clues to unravel its mysteries. Dr. Fulzele picks up loose threads from life to stitch together the theory that man is an extension of woman in his new book, “Man Is the Extension of Woman: Know the Ultimate Truth about Yourself” (published by iUniverse). Dr. Fulzele’s book explores similarities between men and women against the backdrop of their genetic differences, physical variations, and emotional and intellectual dissimilarities. Dr. Fulzele who is a successful surgeon further explains in his book: The main hypothesis I discuss in this book is that, if a woman lives long enough she will be converted into a man physically. A similar thing can also be stated about man. It is wrong to categorize humankind into two genders as it implicates that they are extremely dissimilar and physically opposite to each other. I try to prove that man and woman are just two different stages of one developmental process. And physically they are very similar. The ideas presented may sound unconventional but Dr. Fulzele implores readers to consider his point of view with an open mind. “Your world will not change if you do not agree with me. But if you agree with me, how does it change your world? If more people agree with you and me, how does it change our world? The possibilities are limitless.” About the Author Dr. Makarand Fulzele is a successful surgeon and medical superintendent of a government hospital in Mumbai. He enjoys tapping into hidden and mysterious regions of the human mind, where many strange thoughts occur and get ignored. He is also the author of “Rainbow,” a book similarly dedicated to the spirit of light.
