Topic: Meaning of 'historian'?
Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017 9:55:27 AM
A historian is a person who researches, studies, and writes about the past, and is regarded as an authority on it. Historians are concerned with the continuous, methodical narrative and research of past events as relating to the human race; as well as the study of all history in time.

The answer to your question, Koh, is a big 'No'. IMO

Topic: Do You Know Early Detection of Cancer is Curable.#44
Posted: Monday, October 02, 2017 10:56:27 AM
The scientists, pharmacists, and medical specialist are doing a lot to save humanity from dangerous diseases. The treatment and cure of many diseases have not been found yet. Cancer is one such condition where building block of the human body, the cells, starts dividing in an abnormal way. Why still a secret. Such cells can be of any organ of the live human body. Cancer of the Colon is fairly common. If taken care of at an early stage, it can be cured from spreading to nearby organs (metastasis) and hence death.
When colon cancer is suspected, a healthcare professional performs a number of tests to confirm the diagnosis and locate the exact point. One such process is Colonoscopy.
Colonoscopy is a procedure whereby a health care professional inserts a long, flexible viewing tube into the rectum for the purpose of inspecting the inside of the entire colon. Colonoscopy is generally considered more accurate than barium enema X-rays, especially in detecting small polyps which may result in developing a full-fledge disease. If colon polyps are found, they usually are removed through the colonoscope and sent to the pathologist. The pathologist examines the polyps under the microscope to check for cancer. Colonoscopy is the best procedure to use when cancer of the colon is suspected. While the majority of the polyps removed through colonoscopes are benign, many are precancerous. Removal of precancerous polyps prevents the future development of colon cancer from these polyps.

One should never take lightly the chronic digestive problems, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation,
