Orgasm helps

If you are in your 40s or early 50s, two to four orgasms a week will greatly reduce risk of prostate cancer, according to numerous studies. Researchers said ejaculations flushes out carcinogens from your prostate.
That’s not the only health benefit for middle-aged individuals. Studies said orgasm serves as pain reliever for those suffering from migraines. It also helps lower the risk of breast cancer since hormones DHEA (dehydropiandrosterone) and oxytocin are released during orgasm.

Last Sunday, I witnessed the generosity of some 30 surgeons from St. Luke’s Medical Center who all trooped to Cavite for a surgical mission. No less than Governor Ayong Maliksi and Vice Governor Osboy Campana were on hand to welcome the doctors. In one day, not less than 60 patients who have hernia, goiter, mass or cyst, and cleft lip, among others, had undergone operation either at Kawit Kalayaan Hospital or at the Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Medical Hospital.
For those who missed the opportunity, don’t worry because the St. Luke’s doctors are coming back on Jan. 16 and 17 to once again extend their generosity.
These series of surgical missions are part of the extension program of SLMC in cooperation with the Philippine Urological Residents Association and the Alay Sa Filipino Foundation under Ms. Aida Sy.

I was born in Sorsogon but I grew up in Cavite. In fact, I’m an alumnus of Rosario (Salinas) Central Elementary School and took my first year high school at Cavite College of Arts and Trade, now Cavite State University.

If you want a medicine to help you quit smoking, try Chantix. According to Wikipedia, varenicline (Champix in Europe and other countries) is a prescription medication used to treat smoking addiction. It both reduces cravings for and decreases the pleasurable effects of cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Quitting smoking is not easy, but if you slip back to your habit. Try again. Your several attempts might finally succeed. If you want to quit smoking, try to talk to your friends who successfully abandoned the habit. I stopped smoking in the mid 90s. It is interesting to know who among the presidentiables have quit smoking.

Out of the 80 new HIV/AIDS cases for the month of October, 67 are males and 13 are females. In all cases, sexual contact was the mode of transmission. It is interesting to note that “males having sex with men” or MSM, was the predominant type of sexual transmission at 63 percent. [Send your feedback to]
