How to Get Rid of Moles Safely and Naturally "IndyWatch Feed Health"

You've probably come across a few brown, black or blue moles around your body. In fact, you probably have between 10 and 40 moles in random areas of your skin. This number varies from person to person and is influenced by race and age. People with fairer skin normally have more moles than people with darker skin.1 If you think you have more moles than the average person, there's nothing to worry about, as long as they're not growing or changing in any way.

What Is a Mole?

Moles, or nevi, are common growths on the skin caused by the concentration of pigment cells or melanocytes in a specific spot. There are different kinds of moles that can be found on the body, depending on the period when they appeared, their distinct characteristics and their location. Some of the types are:2

  • Common Common moles are typically 5 to 6 millimeters in diameter, and have distinct edges and a solid color. They are commonly found in areas exposed to sunlight.
  • Atypical Atypical moles have blurry edges and a varying color distribution. These moles have the same appearance as precancerous and cancerous moles, but most atypical moles are benign. However, having more atypical moles may heighten your risk of developing skin cancer in later life.
  • Congenital This refers to moles that were present during birth and are usually called birthmarks. These are at high risk of becoming malignant when someone enters adolescence or adulthood.
  • Acquired Acquired moles appear during childhood or adulthood and develop due to sun exposure.

People usually develop moles in the first years of their life up until the age of 20.3 However, in older individuals, the risk of moles being indicative of melanoma, or cancer of the skin, becomes significantly higher. This is one of the reasons why you should always be aware if they're changing in any way or if new ones are starting to emerge.

Surgical Interventions for Mole Removal

While moles are normal and sometimes are actually seen as beauty marks, some people choose to have them removed. There are numerous products that claim to remove unwanted moles effectively; however, there may be some doubts about their safety and effectiveness.

Some of the creams that people may buy require you to scrape off the upper layer of the mole to be effective. This will then target the pigmentation underneath the skin, allowing a scab to form. They claim that the mole will fall off together with the scab as it heals....

Indigenous Canadian Women Are Still Being Forced Into Sterilization "IndyWatch Feed World"

When you go into the hospital to give birth the last thing you think is that the doctor might try to force you into getting your tubes tied but sadly that seems to be exactly whats happening to indigenous women in Canada. Over the past 25 years, there have been over 60 cases of this occurring and a lawsuit has been opened.

There are currently over 60 women suing physicians at the Saskatchewan Health Authority as well as the Government of Canada over this issue. They claim that they were sterilized against their will after giving birth. While some were pressured into signing papers for concent others were told that if they did not sign they would not be able to see their newborns. Could you imagine having just gone through labor only to be told if you didnt sign something your child would be kept from you?

According to CBC Radio, the most recent case of this that we are aware of happened in 2017 meaning the issue is nowhere near resolved. With Senator Yvonne Boyer pushing the Senate to study into this issue, a lot of things are coming up in recent times. She says that this kind of thing is very close to her as she was coerced into having an abortion at a young age. As a former nurse, she says that tubal litigations carried out on unwilling Indigenous women is one of the most heinous practices in health care that happens across Canada.

Alisa Lombard from the law firm carrying this suit told CBC Radio as follows:

In the throes of labor they would be approached, harassed, coerced into signing these consent forms.

In most cases, women report being told that the procedure was reversibleif not in all casesand they leave sterile.

Many have had bouts and persistent depression, anxiety and many are no longer with us because of those ailments and those circumstances.

We all have a role to play to ensure that Indigenous patients receive quality healthcare free of prejudice, including ensuring medical professionals receive cultural safety training, as laid out in the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions calls to action.

Epub 2018 Mar 16. PMID: 29529430 Abstract Title:  Transgenerational effects and recovery of microplastics exposure in model populations of the freshwater cladoceran Daphnia magna Straus. Abstract:  The environmental contamination by microplastics is a global challenge to ecosystem and human health, and the knowledge on the long-term effects of such particles is limited. Thus, the effects of microplastics and post-exposure recovery were investigated over 4 generations (F, F, F, F) using Daphnia magna as model. Effect criteria were parental mortality, growth, several reproductive parameters, and population growth rate. Microplastics exposure (0.1mg/l of pristine polymer microspheres 1-5m diameter) caused parental mortality (10-100%), and significantly (p0.05) decreased growth, reproduction, and population growth rate leading to the extinction of the microplastics-exposed model population in the Fgeneration. Females descending from those exposed to microplastics in Fand exposed to clean medium presented some recovery but up to the Fgeneration they still had significantly (p0.05) reduced growth, reproduction, and population growth rate. Overall, these results indicate that D. magna recovery from chronic exposure to microplastics may take several generations, and that the continuous exposure over generations to microplastics may cause population extinction. These findings have implications to aquatic ecosystem functioning and services, and raise concern on the long-term animal and human exposure to microplastics through diverse routes.
