Janeane Garofalo Comes Out In Defense Of Pubic Hair

Janeane Garofalo Comes Out In Defense Of Pubic Hair

Commented May 23, 2014 at 08:16:55 in Women

“Having had cervical cancer, I implore women not "don't do it". I endured 30 days of chemo and radiation and 2 Brachy therapies. I was also told by my oncologist not to do it. Stats indicate that over 50% of the population carries the HPV virus, whereas only certain strains can become cancerous. Yes pubic hair is there for a reason. When you shave it, you increase your chances of infection. As if chemo and radiation was bad enough, it's like getting fryed from the inside the Brachy was no picnic. 2 treatments, a set of radioactive rods are inserted and you must lay still for 24 hrs and receive 3 doses of direct internal radiation during that period.”

“You're absolutely right! Sugar is the real health culprit in our health crisis.”

alafonse on Mar 30, 2014 at 07:00:21

“Actually, the liver normally churns sugars into cholesterol. If you take a statin, your blood sugar may go up, because the statin tells the liver not to make cholesterol, so it may end up being a trade-off of lower cholesterol for higher blood sugar. When my doctor first mentioned my cholesterol, I told him that I thought my blood sugar was spiking and that we should first address that, and low and behold my A1C WAS elevated, just as I'd suspected (family history).
Starting on medication for my blood sugar did lower my cholesterol somewhat. That is not to say that this would be equal results for everyone, however Americans do get more than a healthy dose of simple sugars in their diets, which is likely a significant part of the cholesterol problem.
Sweet tea and sodas, potatoes, white bread...and few vegetables. It's a recipe for disaster unless you do hard physical labor all day to burn it up.”

saunee300 on Mar 30, 2014 at 06:59:35

“Yes, sugar and the high glycemic fake carbs (glue) and denatured packaged foods, devoid of any nutrient value that clog our systems, are far worse for us than whole foods, whether that be meats, dairy, butter, veggies, fish, low glycemic healthy carbs and grains, plus moderate daily exercise, fresh air and sunshine........cholesterol lowering drugs are a farce.....thanks for your comment..:))”

“The key word for waiting times is "elective". As a Canadian I can assure you that if you are in need of immediate medical attention you will get it. Nobody dies in our Er's because they don't have insurance. Our system relies on prioritizing need. When I had cancer a couple of years ago, I was diagnosed and began receiving treatment within 2 weeks. My sister who was diagnosed with Leukemia was diagnosed and began treatment within 48hrs. A small percentage may fall through the cracks, but it's rare.”

“Triage is a similar concept. The most at risk get care first. The walking wounded later. Good comment Theresa. Fanned and faved. When I was very seriously ill I went to the front of the line and saw specialists very promptly. Now I am much better having received excellent treatment and do not need preferential treatment. I have to wait to see a specialist for my long term check ups. In that sense,I am on a "waiting list" and contribute to that statistic. There is no need to see a specialist "on demand" if you are receiving good quality primary care, day in and day out, through your family doctor or at a clinic. My access to treatment is excellent.”

“Hear, hear, me too. Immediate diagnosis for breast cancer and treatment, immediate diagnosis and further tests for pancreatic cancer. I did have to wait a few weeks because they needed to get three surgeons at once for the eight-hour operation, two hepatic doctors and one vascular man. Twelve days in a private room with round the clock care, seventeen entrees on the menu the day I left. NO BILL. I did have to pay for the tv.”

“When my father had angina he was treated within 18 hours. When my grandmother was diagnosed with colon cancer she was treated within 3 weeks. The wait is for elective care, as Dr. Martin was careful to point out.”

“Thanks Jonathan, you're right, I've had hormonal imbalances all my life, and yes, I went gluten/grain free a couple of years ago and shed a lot of weight. But still have the D's, ugh. I will look into the Iodine thing, I have a book around here somewhere, I'll have to follow up on that. TY...have a great day!”

“No problem Good luck. I haven't heard of anyone specifically shrinking their breasts this way, but figured it might help since part of what I remember reading talked about breasts being enlarged by hormone issues.

Both books have quite a bit of good information. Again good luck and I hope you have a great day as well thanks.”

“I'm not sure it would help but you might look into Iodine by David Brownstein, and/or The Iodine Crisis by Lynn Farrow. They talk about how Iodine is part of Estrogen balance. There are multiple types of estrogen and this is effected in part by nutrient intake Iodine being just one of many.

Estrogen imbalance can lead to increased size as well as many other negatives.

I also highly recommend The Primal Blueprint or The Paleo Solution

The way we eat plays a large role in hormonal balance.

Seeing as how you say it happened after menopause it sounds like its very likely a hormones issue one that you might alter by doing Paleo/Primal and looking into your Iodine situation.”

“As Canadians we cringe every time we see him in the media, especially the American media. But Ford lives in his own narcissistic little world, claiming he's responsible for the lowest takes rates increases in his province, well I live in a neighboring city and we've had a zero tax hike in the past two years, unfortunately our Mayor, is also in the spotlight for misappropriations of funds. But it seems governments world wide are becoming corrupt, most however don't crave attention like Mr. Ford.”
