when the dialog pays

Observance… in the middle-ages, this word meant the action to observe a religious rule! Reflect today the wish of physicians to see their followed scrupulously, requirements such as the words of Saint Bernard? This applied discipline is of crucial importance for the individual and for the health of the population.

Pr Jean Doucette (Rouen) defines compliance as “the adequacy between the recommendations of the doctor and the behaviour of the patient, it concerns both tracking the prescription of medicines that boards and planning of care.” “It is also not followed treatments than drugs taken in excessive doses than prescribed”.

Sometimes consequences serious

the health

However, two thirds of the requirements are not strictly respected: less time, less often in taken grouped in hourly irregulars… everything is possible, and for multiple diseases: AIDS has largely contributed to the dissemination of the word, with 30-40% of people “not observances”. All chronic conditions are concerned, since the symptoms are not apparent: high blood pressure, diseases metaboliques… In asthma, treatment noncompliance faces extremely serious consequences in the very short term: three quarters of asthmatic patients emergency admissions could be avoided and most of the deaths are related to deficient observance.

“MOM, I want to vomit!”: it is by these words is the sickness in children. In this case, you stop the vehicle on the side of the road, expect that the child has vomited, and then you resume the road in poor conditions, because you already know that things will manage when you will be arrived or that your sick child will lull. But much inconvenience can be avoided by a better understanding of the phenomenon of “evil of transport” and the means to fight.

Useful measures before departure


1 – The child must be rested
The first of the conditions is to make the journey to the child after a good night’s rest. A time of insufficient sleep increases the nauseous phenomena. Also, check it early layer and throw it at the last moment. Unnecessary that he is half asleep at all the preparations. Continue reading “Sickness”


Chondrosarcoma is part of bone cancer, bone tumor, but this is unusual to develop from cartilage cells. Unlike other bone cancer, chondrosarcoma does not respond to chemo or radiotherapy. Healing thus passes only through surgery.

Bone cancer

Primary cancers of the bones develop from bone tissue, fibrous or cartilaginous. Chondrosarcoma is a tumor that develops from cartilage cells. This is one of the two most common primary cancer of the bone with osteosarcoma. Chondrosarcoma primarily affects adults over the age of 30. The cartilages most often affected are the larger bones like the femur, tibia hummers, but the pelvis.

The areas most commonly affected are arms, legs and pelvis . However, any bone can be affected. Chondrosarcomas can develop either spontaneously or from a small pre-existing benign tumor which they will complicate the course. Moreover, there are two types of tumors: the most numerous are slow growing or low-grade malignancy, which means that the risk of metastases is low. The other type of tumor has a high degree of malignancy and tends to spread, to metastasize. Continue reading “CHONDROSARCOMA, BONE CANCER, CANCER OF THE CARTILAGE”


We search, we check, we test, scientists continue to study possible health risks of mobile phones. Remember, he is regularly suspected of increasing the frequency of brain tumor.

In search of a possible tumor

Some think that we are relentlessly for several years to detect brain tumors related to the intensive use of mobile phones. Others believe that it applies to legitimately and conscientiously check their innocuite. Mais regardless of which side one takes, studies come since the 90s, when an increased incidence of lymphomas has been demonstrated in rats exposed to magnetic fields.


But so far, except a few trials discussed scientifically and methodologically, the results are consistent with a lack of increased risk of brain tumors in mobile. Portent enthusiasts, a new study led the research as far and sown doute. Etant given the rarity of brain tumors, or gliomas, this is what we call a case-control study, which compares the phone habits of a population of patients with glioma a control population free of tumor. The first group included nearly 1,000 subjects, in whom a brain tumor was diagnosed between late 2000 and early 2004. The control group consisted of about 1,700 people. Extensive data on their use of mobile phone were collected: date of commencement of use, frequency, aircraft type, analog or digital, etc..

The different types of brain cancer

In a majority of cases, cancer of the brain starts in another part of the body, before reaching the brain. The origin of a brain tumor may be another cancer that has metastasized (breast, lung, colon, melanoma, salivary gland ….). Continue reading “WHO IS AT RISK OF BRAIN CANCER?”


After 10 years of waiting, the results of the Interphone study are finally published. They are very disappointing because hardly reassuring. The experts have failed to demonstrate a link between brain cancer and mobile phone use. Which also means they have failed to? Prove the safety of mobile health…?

-The use of mobile phones increases his risk of brain tumor?
-Cell phone and brain cancer: sobering conclusion
-Precautionary measures are needed!


The use of mobile phones increases his risk of brain tumor?

The result of the Interphone study has just been officially published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, exactly 10 years after its launch by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Originally, they were planned for 2004, but they have always been remote, so the data were contradictory. The final conclusion is very disappointing, although expected because of rumors about the quarrels between the experts. Continue reading “MOBILE PHONE AND CANCER: THE BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!”

The flu (or swine flu) Influenza

A (H1N1) can occur in mild or show a course that is sometimes quite serious. The symptoms of this variety, however, mostly flu are similar to those of classical seasonal and include fever with rapid onset, myalgias and arthralgias, headache, anorexia, fatigue and, sometimes, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Among the various aspects symptom of the condition to be counted even those that correlate with a worsening of existing chronic diseases such as pneumonia and respiratory failure that may be associated.

It should also be noted in this connection, that those who are infected are already potentially infectious during the incubation of the disease when the symptoms are still to come: an adult infected, in fact, can transmit the virus to a healthy individual when he still feels in good health, then, from the first appearance of symptoms, is still contagious for a period or up to seven days.


Children, especially those in the earliest age, they may spread the virus for longer periods. Furthermore, the human transmission of this virus strain is also generally or by coughing and sneezing of those who are carriers (droplets of saliva and nasal secretions), or through contact with infected mucus from the hands airways.

The chronic fatigue syndrome

The chronic fatigue syndrome “I’m tired, always tired, I do not want to do anything …” This is known as chronic fatigue syndrome, or at least could be. He speaks frequently and often without really knowing what it is. We interviewed Prof. John Cristianini, and we shot some of the questions most frequently arrive in Margherita.net on this topic.

There is a chronic fatigue syndrome? Yes there is. In December 1994, an international study group, formed in the United States, was able to publish a definition of this syndrome, which was to replace a previous description of six years earlier. He came to establish, in that occasion that this syndrome is characterized by the presence of symptomatic conditions listed in the following section.

The chronic fatigue syndrome

What’s’ intended for chronic fatigue syndrome? The chronic fatigue syndrome (known in English speaking countries such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) is a disease whose origins are not yet well clarified and that manifests itself in a state of prolonged fatigue (at least over 6 months and often lasting several years) often accompanied by other symptoms such as headache, a sore throat applicant, sleep disturbance, memory loss, musculoskeletal pain.

Bone cancers represent malignancies developing inside the bones. Are differentiated primary cancers of bone, developed from bone cells, secondary cancers of the bones are actually metastases of another cancer in another part of the body.

-Treatments depend on the origin of cancer remote


Bone cancer may be the result of bone metastases of another cancer

Secondary bone cancers are actually bone metastases from cancer of another organ, such as a prostate cancer, thyroid, breast, kidney, lung, etc.. In other words, they are localized cancer that eventually spread to invade the bone, destroying it little by little. Cancer can spread to any bone but they generally do not exceed the elbows and knees. This type of bone cancer, Su bone metastases is called a secondary bone cancer.
