Report: Anticipating Results of Bar Exam Linked to Rare Brain Tumors

The mysterious increase in brain tumors is concentrated primarily in the gulf coast region of the U.S., say researchers

The mysterious increase in brain tumors is concentrated in the gulf coast region of the U.S., say researchers

A team of researchers at the Medical Research Institute of Nevada are presenting the results of a new study at a conference later this year in Washington D.C. that reveals a link between waiting for results of a Bar Exam, and a dramatic increase in inoperable brain tumors.

“It primarily afflicts males between 49 and 58” said Dr. Walter J. McGuffin, the team’s lead researcher. “Other risk factors include smoking, and prolonged exposure to certain species of birds, and primates, such as lemurs.”

 “Much remains unknown, but the more law firms are informed about the risks, the better prepared they’ll be to tell their applicants to get their affairs in order.”

Since Dr. MacGuffin‘s research grant included allowances for luxury travel packages, the staff was able to interrupt their research frequently for rest, adventure, and recreation. “As a result, unfortunately, much of the actual research was left undone by the time the Medical Review Board required us to submit our finished work.”

“…even in healthy, well-adjusted males, the tumor can develop quickly, go undetected, become malignant, and in a matter of weeks, grow to the size of a jumbo can of tuna.”

Speaking by phone from the lobby of the Fasano Hotel e Restaurante Rio, Dr. MacGuffin expressed confidence that their research would eventually lead to improved diagnostics, and eventually, save lives. He emphasized the importance of early detection.

 “Much remains unknown, but the more law firms are informed about the risks, the better prepared they’ll be to tell applicants to get their affairs in order.”

Observing that “none of our current diagnostic methods have been able to detect the tumor in time to save the lives of any of the patients we studied,” Dr. MacGuffin added, “the length of time the individual applicant is required to wait for results of the exam, and the amount of stress involved, are also factors. But it appears that even in healthy, well-adjusted males, the tumor can develop quickly, go undetected, become malignant, and in a matter of weeks, grow to the size of a jumbo can of tuna.’

The study, funded by the American Association of Abnormally Tall Trial Lawyers, is the first of its kind.  The results are expected to be published in the June edition of the Hong King Kong Medical Review.

Rare Disorder Gives Woman 50 Orgasms Per Day

Rare-Disorder-Gives-Woman-50-Orgasms-per-Day-450x264

It sounds like something out of an adult film; a woman has 50 orgasms in just one day. But for Gretchen Molannen and thousands of other women, the disorder which causes her to have to relieve her condition is a terrible disease. It’s called “Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder or “Restless Genital Syndrome” and, while rare, afflicts victims with constant, unrelenting sensations in the genital region, causing extreme physical and mental anguish.

For those with the most severe form of this condition, having an orgasm does little or nothing to relieve the pressure. They are forced to attempt to get relief by trying again, until sometimes, they are sore and exhausted. These women often find themselves debilitated; unable to work or maintain a relationship.
