The New STD: HPV Can Kill

Men can have no symptoms of HPV
An article found on blackdoctor.org and floated around facebook (via Michael Baisden's page) has the social network community in a tizzy.

The Human papillomavirus once thought to be asymptomatic in men is now reportedly killing men. The article says a study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology reports there is a "225 percent uptick in HPV-positive," head and neck cancers since 1998--surpassing the national cervical cancer rate.

The cauliflower-like warts can be found on the hands or other parts of the body. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there is a vaccine for preventing HPV but no cure for the disease.  Currently, there is no HPV test recommended for men. The only approved HPV tests on the market are used to screen women for cervical cancer. Please click on the CDC link for more information and be sure to check with your physician if you are concerned about your health, rather than self-diagnose. (smile)

Be Green Everyday-Grow Wheat Grass at Home

Nothing much to say...ummm..my teeth are really white and that's a good thing...ummmm...
I will put links to blog posts here from time to time and I would like you to read and comment. Please watch, subscribe to the videos too. Thank you!
Oh Yeah, I started a new blog!
I began DIY Life Hack Mamma because that is what I do most of the time: figure stuff out.
 If you've ever heard of the phrase champagne taste on a beer budget, you've found me. I make soap from scratch because regular soap does not agree with my skin, I recreate restaurant meals at home, create appliances I cannot install or afford (yet,) and in general, I figure out a way from no way. I pray a lot too. Join me on my journey. It will be fun. 
Everything you see me do is for entertainment purposes only. All of my experiments are for my purposes only. It's fun to watch.
