Black women have often been under the microscope and/or the center of attention for their coveted derriere’s. The plumper the butt the more sought after they are for rapper’s music videos and believed to be more prominent in the south as a result of good ol’ southen cooking.
But never have we ever heard of a black woman’s round posterior being associated with some sort of defect of her spine referred to as “Ghetto Booty”! So, it is of no surprise when Terry Ragland, 55, of Jackson, Tennessee, was treated for back pain and diagnosed by her new doctor with this sort of unofficial medical terminology, she was shocked.
Ragland was treated by Dr. Timothy Sweo in April, when he thought that this was suitable or acceptable to convey to Ragland in racist laymen’s terms her medical condition that is really called “lumbar lordosis.” He didn’t think that a woman with “ghetto booty” would understood the terminology and this was the only way to explain it to her.

Geneticists and fertility doctors have claimed over the last decade that they can help you choose your baby’s physical traits, avoid disease inherent in the child, and even choose the gender through pre-genetic testing.
But now Britain is planning to give the parents even more options by adding another more genetically favorable volunteer to their baby concoction. The scientists are threatening to genetically modify the embryo which is being held under much scrutiny for the ethical question that all scientists SHOULD ask themselves, “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.” The Frankenstein concept is being attempted again with scientists’ attempt to essentially create life.

Cancer is an awful disease that has baffled medical professionals around the world since its inception. But some speculate the origins of cancerous cells stem from drinking, smoking, and stress.
But not actor Michael Douglas, he is convinced he knows different. The 68-year-old Douglas, known for his most memorable role as the cheating husband in Fatal Attraction, believes that his throat cancer came from performing oral sex that put him in contact with the human papilloma virus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted disease in the U.S., according to the Daily Mail.

Drugs alter a person’s judgment, physical function, and some cause hallucinations, but that’s still not enough to stop folks from trying even more drugs.
The UK is on fire with a new drug that is similar to taking LSD and/or Ecstasy and looks like a small bag of cough drops. It’s called Benzo Fury and it’s taking the UK by storm. The drug is even sold over the internet for as low as $15 per pill. Folks taking the drug talked of hallucinations and bold amounts of energy.
The drug is labeled as a research chemical pellets and are considered harmful for “human consumption,” yet that has not stopped their sales. In fact, they are selling like hot cakes online, at “musical festivals and clubs.” (more…)

Health reports are suggesting a decline in teen pregnancy, but that has nothing to do with the rate that young people are contracting sexually transmitted diseases or STD’s.
But, even with a decline in teen pregnancy the FDA finds it necessary to drop the age limit from 17 to 15 for the morning after pill or Plan B One-Step emergency contraception pill. This ruling also makes it possible for girls 15 and older to receive the emergency contraception without a prescription. This drug prevents an egg from being released from the ovary or prevents the egg from being fertilized by sperm within 24 – 72 hours. (more…)

Are you headed to Australia, Africa, or Turkey or some other far off place over the summer? More importantly, are you carrying small children with you and you’re already fearful of how the trip will go? Well, there may be help for you…if you don’t mind druggin’ your kid.
The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting a controversial story of a mom who opened up about her use of Phenergan Elixir. The drug is an ”over-the-counter medicine that contains promethazine, a sedating antihistamine.” A physician usually suggests the drug for motion sickness and “discomfort from certain allergies.” Which could occur with children on a flight, right?
The problem with the drug, as admitted by Shona Sibary, is that you can give your child an overdose which will leave them limp and unresponsive when you need them to get up. (more…)

It’s been a couple of years since we last reported and was disgusted by Dr. Kermit Gosnell and his ‘House of Horrors’ brand of macabre abortions. But as they decide his fate for killing seven babies and a woman he was giving an abortion, the jury is filled with women.
The local CBS affiliate in Philadelphia interviewed Gosnell in 2010, and he was quite confident that he will win the case when all the evidence and information is provided. But, he may be changing his tune as his assistants have given testimony that include live births where he snipped the infants’ spinal cord to end their lives. (more…)
