Not everyone thinks it is a great idea. Medscape Medical News, February 22, 2013 :: Alcohol use accounted for approximately 3.5% of all cancer deaths in the United States according to a study that used data from 2009 and was published online February 14 in the American Journal of Public Health. Alcohol caused about 19500 cancer deaths with each alcohol-attributable death resulting in about 18 years of potential life lost report the study authors led by David Nelson MD MPH from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda Maryland The more alcohol a person drinks the greater the risk for related cancer death they found. But even low consumption levels are associated with risk. "In sum there is no apparent threshold when it comes to alcohol and cancer risk" the authors note. The problem of alcohol-related cancer deaths is worse in Europe where per capita alcohol consumption is higher than it is in the United States the authors point out. For example a recent European study found that alcohol accounted for 10% of total cancer incidence in men and 3% in women (BMJ. 2011;342:d1584). They limited their analyses to the 7 types of cancers (oral cavity and pharynx larynx esophagus liver colon rectum and female breast) that have been "considered causally associated with alcohol use" by expert bodies such as International Agency for Research on Cancer. Cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx larynx and esophagus accounted for 3790 to 8395 of alcohol-attributable deaths in men (53% to 71%) and breast cancer accounted for 4730 to 7310 of alcohol-attributable deaths in women (56% to 66%). This study was supported in part by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships. Am J Public Health.

Abstract :: High postpartum anxiety is linked to increased maternal healthcare use and decreased breast-feeding, particularly among new mothers, according to a study published online March 4 in Pediatrics As might be expected, given the stressful nature of childbirth and its effect on a woman's life and responsibilities, new moms were significantly more likely to screen positive for anxiety than multiparous women (20% vs 15% This study was supported by the Maternal Child Health Bureau and the Children’s Miracle Network. The authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships. Pediatrics. Published online March 4, 2013. Abstract :: Notice - LAB is Open from 01-04-2020. For Emergency Clinic Timing 9.00 A M To 5.00 P M. No Home collection. :: Health Advisory - Please Stay at Home :: In the study, the authors used GBD 2010 to compare the health performance of the United Kingdom with that of Australia, Canada, Norway, the United States, and the 15 original members of the European Union (EU15+) for 1990 and 2010. Although life expectancy increased by 4.2 years in the United Kingdom between 1990 and 2010 (uncertainty interval [UI], 4.2 - 4.3 years), the country had a far worse performance for age-standardized death rate (P < .001), age-standardized years of life lost (P < .001), and life expectancy in birth (P < .001) in 2010 than the mean of EU15+. Although the 8 leading causes of death in the country were relatively unchanged between 1990 and 2010, increases in premature mortality resulting from Alzheimer's disease (137%; 95% UI, 16% - 277%), cirrhosis (65%; 95% UI, -15% to 107%), and drug use disorders (577%; 95% UI, 71% - 942%) were noted. In addition, mental and behavioral disorders (21.5%; 95% UI, 17.2% - 26.3%) and musculoskeletal disorders (30.5%; 95% UI, 25.5% - 35.7%) were the leading causes of years lived with disability.

A specimen in a condom is not acceptable. The specimen must be submitted to the laboratory within 15 to 20 minutes from the time of collection, being kept as close to body temperature as possible. If it is not possible to collect and deliver the specimen within that time frame, the specimen must be collected on the hospital premises.
