I love watching Hospital series, such as Chicago Hope, ER, House or Grey’s Anatomy, although I’m not always sure what all the terms mean. So I had a look to find out what the commonly used terms mean:

World Breastfeeding Week

with one comment

A Pinch and a Punch for the first of the Munch! I know it should be month,

From today August 1st to 7th World Breastfeeding Week. There is lots of room here for very smutty jokes, but I’ll leave that up to you and your imagination.

Breastfeeding is very important for the growth of a child, a good way for mothers to pass on antigens to their offspring and a brilliant way to bond.

Global Disease Mashup #mashup

with one comment

Migraines, where they ever imaginary?

with 2 comments

I really only know girls who have migraines, perhaps it’s because they talk about it. As the article Why Migraines Strike states, migraines aren’t just headache, unlike headaches they could have a neurological source. A couple of my friends have been left with migraines as result of whiplash or other accident.

The article ends with “[t]he disorder is ‘imaginary’ no longer.” I can’t remember it ever being imaginary for the sufferers.
