Would someone post for me the medical name for elephant man’s disease and
tell me if there is and where to find a FAQ regarding this malady?
The Elephant man had the so-called Proteus syndrome,and not von
Recklinghausen’s neurofibromatosis as it was long thought! For details, see
the articles by Tibbles JAR and Cohen MM in the British Journal of Medicine
1986:293:683-685 and by Cohen MM in the American Journal of Medical
Genetics 1988:29:777-782.I don’t knoe if there is a FAQ regarding this
What disease does Celine have? I’m guessing maybe she has elephant man’s
disease or bulimia? Anyone know what diseases Celine Dion has?
Are u just shooting out any disease that may make you sound inteligent.
Elephant Man’s disease, first only happen man, and it causes for the abdomen to
be stretched. So far with all your saying as her being thin, she definiately
does not have a disease…either you are trying to sound inteligent for your
pathetic age and state, or you or just plain out stupid.
The witch-hunt is now truly swinging into top gear to denigrate high profile
leaders in Complementary Medicine. Many of our Members are aware that Prof
John Dwyer (a member of the Sceptics Assoc) complained to ACCC regarding
Australian Biological Testing Services (Jennie’s Company) procedure.
FIGHTING FUND TO ASSIST JENNIE
Jennie has had to sell her house to fight this case that will be held in the
Federal Court. How can this happen to a person who is so highly regarded by
the leaders in Complementary Medicine in so many overseas countries, including
Europe, China, America and Canada? Jennie has been an invited Guest Speaker of
so many World Health Congresses over the years, & is a houseguest of the
Presidents of the Oncology Society of Germany and Austria when attending World
Congresses in Europe.
No doubt it is a backhanded complement that orthodox medicine, backed by the
drug companies, feel threatened by the revealing results produced by Australian
Biologic’s Testing Services. All who have met and benefited from her expertise
will be appalled at this outrageous charge and will want to financially assist
with a small (or large) donation. We would be lost if the Australian
Biological Testing Service were denied to us. Let us show Jennie our
support. Nexus Magazine is also having a Fighting Fund for Jennie.

“Marriage is good for your sex life, but both it and religion could
harm your sexual health.
The first ever global survey of sexual behaviour, studying more than a
million men and women from 59 countries, has found that while married
people have the most sex, marriage is not a safeguard for sexual
health. “Married women typically find it harder than single women to
negotiate safer sex and condom use, leaving them more vulnerable to
infections and unplanned pregnancies,” says Kay Wellings at the London
School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who led the research.
Perhaps surprisingly, countries where people have the most sexual
partners – the developed world – also have the lowest incidence of
sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies. The reason
could be that condom use is far more common in these countries,
Religion is a real problem in reproductive health, says Joy Phumaphi,
assistant director general of the World Health Organization. People
who follow religions that frown on contraception still have more
children than they can support, and the lack of safe abortion centres
harms thousands of women, she says. Only part of the blame lies with
Catholicism and other major religions, Phumaphi says. “The biggest
problem is many independent churches have huge influence and very
The survey is part of a batch of sex and reproductive health papers
published this week in The Lancet.

The subject line does not match the article. The subject line would only be
true depending on your definition of sexual health. It says that the lack of
safe abortion centers harms thousands of wonmen, but it is not clear what
role religion has in the actual harm, or what the harm exactly is, although
one would assume it means that women try to get unsafe abortions. But since
religions discourage abortion, how can they be blamed for unsafe abortions
Also it doesn’t actually say that having lots of babies harms sexual health.
It says religions have extremist views but doesn’t make clear how exrtremist
views harm sexual health, and doesn’t define exactly what sexual health is.
