Cristiane Justino Venancio, famously known as Cyborg or Cris Cyborg, recently took to social media to explain how she has been dealing with bullying for five years from Ronda Rousey and UFC president Dana White.
Cyborg said she found Ronda Rousey hypocritical about complaining that people in Hollywood are being critical of her body image. Rousey said people have been talking about her arms or the extra weight she carries between fights.
Ronda Rousey recently stated in an interview that she is tired of people discussing her weight and body. The same Rousey and Dana White have used media to bully her and even opened door for other opponents to try the same tactics.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the guidelines called Stage 3 that will allow users to read and exchange electronic health information. The information will quite accessible, said the authorities concerned.
The guidelines will firstly start as an optional requirement for users in 2017 and next year will be required. Main aim of the initiative is to make the healthcare industry a less of paper-based system. The paper-based system is often confusing owing to factors like doctor's handwriting, patients can misplace them and patients' files can be lost.
A team of physicists from the University of Sydney has come up with a new way to detect cancerous tumors and that is by using diamonds. Using the new technology, called non-invasive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, the researchers were able to identify the onset of cancer much earlier than previous technology.
A nano scale, synthetic version of a diamond, was used to light up cancerous tumors in the early-stages of the disease. The researchers have credited a 2013 research project called DINAMO, funded by the European Union, to create a new method for scientists using which they could study the molecular processes that occur in living cells.
Authorities concerned announced that people have health insurance through Medicare then their annual open enrollment period is starting from Thursday, October 15 and would run through December 7. But the choices that people will make will go into effect from January 1.
Medicare is the health-care program meant for those aged 65 and above. And, by the term annual open enrollment period means the time when they can change their choices with regard to Part D (prescription drug) coverage, change Medigap plans, enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan and/ or change Medicare Advantage plans.
A Cumberland child who attends the Mabel I. Wilson School, meant for students in kindergarten through 3rd grade, has been hospitalized with viral meningitis. It is the second time in a week in York County that a student has been diagnosed with meningitis.
Viral meningitis is said to be less aggressive and more common than bacterial meningitis. Experts have shared that people who contract viral meningitis often get well without taking treatment and this process can take between a week and 10 days.

In the event, people walked through West Hollywood and the Fairfax district. An opening ceremony was held that was attended by celebrities and city dignitaries. After the opening event, the walk started at 10 am at West Hollywood Park.
The walk included a new 90-foot tunnel with artificial turf, water misters and information panels on HIV and AIDS. With the help of the money, the organizations will be able to provide food, housing, medical and dental care and counseling to people living with HIV and AIDS and take steps to prevent new infections.
According to a new American study, led by researchers from the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, the reason elephants rarely get cancer is a special mechanism in their cells that fights the disease. The study was published last week in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The study found that elephants have 40 copies of a gene called P53, a well-known tumor suppressor, whereas humans have just two. The intensive activity of the gene kills a large number of cancer cells in elephants that allows them to overcome the disease.
On the basis of these findings, researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa have decided to conduct a follow-up study to translate the discovery into innovative cancer treatments.
The fall season brings the flu season. An individual shouldn't ignore the advertisements and signs for the flu shot. The influenza virus is a quite infectious respiratory illness and results into a lot of symptoms. In some cases, the flu means a week of cough, congestion, muscle pains, and fevers, but for many people, mainly elderly and young children the flu can mean severe symptoms, leading to hospitalization and even death.
The flu virus is highly infectious and spreads in no time through small droplets in the air that come when infected people cough, sneeze, or even talk. An individual can't even realize that he is spreading the virus because the virus can replicate even a day before sickness and continuing up to seven days after feeling sick.
The Health Science Team members from the St. Charles Parish Satellite Center in Luling have been putting in efforts to aware people about breast cancer and working on a Breast Cancer Awareness Project. The annual project is initiated with a motive to educate the community and raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
Pink paper links were sold by the team members for $1 each during a competition between the east and west bank. East bank, the team that sold the highest number of links and raised the most money for research, was announced the winner. The team won the competition by selling 9,151 links, whereas the west bank sold 9,136 links. During the project, about $18,287 was raised. The amount was donated to the American Cancer Society.
Daniel Fells, an American football tight end for the New York Giants of the National Football League, has undergone five surgeries for staph infection. Doctors are still fighting to make efforts to avoid amputate his foot.
The 32-year-old football star was diagnosed with MRSA earlier this week. MRSA is powerful bacteria resistant to penicillin-type treatment. Fells is expected to undergo some more operations on his foot, which is presently at higher risk of further infection, according to the report.
NFL.com reported early Sunday that doctors treating Fells are hoping to save his foot from amputation, but also fear that the MRSA has infected his bone and could even spread into his blood.
A team of researchers through a study found that patients who undergo gastric bypass surgery were at a higher risk of self-harm. The study researchers found that patients were more likely to attempt suicide or harm themselves after weight-loss surgery.
The team led by Junaid Bhatti, PhD, at the Sunnybrook Research Institute in Toronto, looked at a cohort of 8,800 patients for three years. They tracked patients before and after they had surgery to lose weight.
During the first three years after surgery, 111 patients received emergency care for self-inflicted injuries, noted the researchers. On the other hand, they found that the risk of such emergencies was 54% higher after the patients underwent surgeries.
A Swiss drug maker Roche revealed that its new treatment for multiple sclerosis has shown positive results. But positive results from the ORATORIO study have left experts in question about the magnitude of benefits in the primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS).
According to Xavier Montalban from Vall d'Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona, and colleagues , the anti-CD20+ therapy significantly reduced the proportion of patients who had 12-week confirmed disability progression by 24% compared with placebo.
Last week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared the third global coral bleaching event ever on record. The announcement came after a year of widespread coral damage that started in the north Pacific, expanding to the south pacific and Indian oceans before it reached Hawaii and the Caribbean.
Mark Eakin, NOAA's Coral Reef Watch coordinator, said that the coral bleaching is the result of climate change. Coupled with events, such as the current El Niño, coral bleaching and disease are the biggest and most pervasive threats to coral reefs worldwide.
NASA is quite excited about its mission to Mars. Things have become more interesting after the release of the movie Martian. Lately, the space agency has released a plan detailing its next steps in this direction. The plan can be broken down in three phases.
Though NASA wants to actualize the trip to Mars, it has not lost touch with reality and knows that the path full of obstacles and they need to be patient. In the document, NASA has said that they can consider of a trip around 2030.
One of the main problems that they have to solve is there is no means of propulsion that can send a spacecraft that far into the Universe. The agency said that it will work on an electric propulsion system that will not require fuel.
Researchers said that the catastrophic climate events that happened in the 2004 film The Day After Tomorrow can turn into reality. Using the German climate model ECHAM at the Max-Planck Institute in Hamburg reached at the conclusion. In the movie, abrupt collapse of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) led to disaster.
The catastrophic events led to New York being flooded, the northern hemisphere freezing and tornadoes destroyed Los Angeles in the movie. Now, the researchers have raised the same concerns to happen in reality.
Researchers have shared that zombie bees have been seen along the West Coast and more recently in some Eastern states. Along with this, they unveiled that honeybees are also abandoning their hives. Researchers said that they might know the link between the two.
Researchers said that Apocephalus borealis flies may be depositing eggs in the bees’ stomach, changing their behaviour. The theory is when flies put maggots in bees’ abdomen then the bees fly erratically in uncharacteristic night flights. Generally, the bees get excited by porch lights and fall dead.
Researchers have positive news to share. It’s been three decades now since the Chernobyl nuclear accident took place and there has been quite a transformation as a disaster zone has evolved into a nature zone full of wildlife including elk, deer and wolves.
There is still an exclusion zone, where humans are not allowed to return. But this exclusion zone is not meant for wildlife, as researchers have seen that wildlife is returning into the area. As per the research paper published in the journal Current Biology, the Chernobyl zone, which is around 4,200 square kilometers, is now full of wildlife.
Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. receives another approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its cancer drug Opdivo, also known chemically as nivolumab. This time the approval is for the treatment of patients with metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer.
According to the National Cancer Institute lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in the US. An estimated 221,200 new cases were diagnosed and more than 158,000 deaths were recorded last year.
The expanded approval was based on results from a phase III trial, dubbed CheckMate-057. Researchers during the trial noted that Opdivo demonstrated superior overall survival in previously treated metastatic non-squamous NSCLC patients as compared to standard chemotherapy drug Docetaxel.
Breast cancer has become a growing concern in United States. As per the Centers for disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 41,150 women and 405 men died from breast cancer in the United States. But advancement in research and technology has opened several options before patients battling with breast cancer.
Isabelle Hopper said when she learned that she had cancer in her right breast her first thought was to have both the breasts removed. The 37-year-old said, “I’m not the type of person who likes to be reactive. I want to be proactive, and when you’re dealing with cancer, proactive takes on an entirely new meaning”.
