Can Applying Vicks VapoRub to Your Feet Really Cure a Cough?

  Can Applying Vicks VapoRub to Your Feet Really Cure a Cough? "I just tried this remedy about 10 minutes ago and my coughing has already stopped."Vicks VapoRub has been around since 1919, when a Spanish flu epidemic solidified its place in American medicine cabinets, but only in relatively recent history have consumers begun using it on their feet instead of its intended application on the chest and neck. There's no actual scientific evidence that slathering the cough suppressant on your soles (followed by socks, of course) can stop your hacking, but there is plenty of anecdotal proof.

' We Made Little Spring Rolls With Their Feet .' These Bears Are Getting Special Treatment for Their Wildfire - Burned Paws .

These fresh spring rolls are delicious! Don't be intimidated by the rice paper wrappers. These rolls were great the same day I made them. They still tasted good the next day, but they started to get a little sticky.

Men at higher risk of dying of AIDS than women: UNAIDS

  Men at higher risk of dying of AIDS than women: UNAIDS Men are less likely to test for HIV or access antiretroviral therapy and, therefore, are more likely to die of AIDS-related illnesses than women, UNAIDS said on Friday. Around the world, fewer than half of HIV-positive men are getting treatment, compared to 60 percent of women, according to a UNAIDS report released on World AIDS Day.

(SAN FRANCISCO) — Veterinarians successfully used alternative medical treatments such as acupuncture on three wild animals burned in the Southern California wildfires, although one patient — a 5-month-old mountain lion — did keep eating his fish-skin and corn-husk bandages, vets at the University of California, Davis said Wednesday.

Rescuers brought two adult bears, one of them pregnant, and the young mountain lion to veterinarians with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the university after the animals were hurt in the largest wildfire in state history. They were found in the Los Padres National Forest, whose mountains stretch through badly burned areas of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

The bears had suffered third-degree burns on all their paws, said Jamie Peyton, chief of the Integrative Medicine Service at the university’s vet school. The cub also burned all four paws.

Standard pain treatment is a problem for both the animals and their caregivers when it comes to wildlife with sharp teeth and claws, Peyton said. For safety, vets have to heavily sedate the animals every time they change their bandages or otherwise care for them.

This is the best way to lose weight in winter

  This is the best way to lose weight in winter Here's why you should ditch the gym and take your workout into the great outdoors this winter. Despite popular belief, your body doesn't go into starvation mode in the wintertime. Outside of the sweets-filled smorgasbord of the holidays, the other major reason that people tend to gain weight in the winter months is that they often spend a lot less time jogging in the park and a lot more time eating cookies on the couch.But we've got some good news. If you do manage to motivate yourself into doing a little outdoor exercise, you'll get way more of a payback for your troubles.

“You can only anesthetize them so many times,” Peyton said. “It’s hard on them. We can’t do that to them every day.”

Putting pain pills in food also is problematic, because there’s no guarantee the animals will eat them, Peyton said.

Instead, Peyton and her colleagues used some of the alternative methods she already employs with other animals, including acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, and cold-laser therapy. Many health-insurance companies consider some of the treatments experimental or unproven, and do not always cover their costs in human patients.

Green Gummy Bears Are Strawberry-Flavored and Our Minds Are Blown

  Green Gummy Bears Are Strawberry-Flavored and Our Minds Are Blown Gummy bears are not the innocent, adorable snacks that they seem. They’ve been living a lie. The flavors of gummy bears have nothing to do with their colors — and one of our favorite snacks will never be the same. Some candies, like Skittles for instance, are simply colored and scented differently but taste exactly the same. The outer shells of Skittles taste somewhat different — but the chewy insides are identical in every morsel. After hearing about this travesty, reporters over at NPR recently started wondering whether gummy bears had distinct flavors at all.

“I adore them, but they’re wild,” Peyton explained.

Another form of treatment seemed most helpful of all for the bears, vets said.

The California vets stitched the fish skins to the animals’ burned paws, then wrapped the treated feet with bandages of rice paper and corn husks, after reading about trials on human burn victims in Brazil that placed treated skins from tilapia, a ubiquitous species of fish, on burn victims to soothe pain and promote healing.

Doctors routinely graft skin from humans and pigs to burns, but fish skins have the advantage of being more readily available.

“We made little spring rolls with their feet,” Peyton said.

Ordinary cloth bandages can block animals’ intestines if the animals eat them, which they often do.

One of the bears initially laid down continuously to spare her burned paws, not wanting to stand or walk at all, Peyton said.

“After the first time we put the bandages on, she woke up, she stood up,” and showed interest in her surroundings, she said. Both bears were soon walking.

The results argue for more trials of the fish skins for burns, the vets said.

After weeks of treatment, wildlife officials released the bears back into the burned Los Padres National Forest last week. They plan to release the cub this week.
