Pablo Retana is an alumnus of the University of Costa Rica, a journeyman writer and future reclusive author. A self-styled skeptic, this worldview serves him well when writing professionally on medical and scientific subjects as he currently does. A reader, scrivener, editor, translator and critic in the vein of Hunter S. Thompson, a line of creativity that is more obvious in his private, stream-of-consciousness prose and literary and film critiques, items which will probably encounter the same fate as most of J.D. Salinger’s oeuvre

The state of West Virginia could use oral care medical supplies online such as these if its denizens don’t want to appear as honorable mentions in the Big Book of British Smiles.

Medical supplies online for sexual health such as condoms could be more effective tool to fight gonorrhea, according to a CDC study. The latest Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report warns that the bacterium that causes the sexually transmitted disease – known by its scientific name as Neisseria gonorrhoeae, may be developing resistance to the last-line antibiotics used to treat it. The health agency’s current go-to treatment for gonorrhea is a double shot of azithromycin and ceftriaxone. Like Merle Travis’s fists, if one don't a-get gonorrhea, the other one will. Unfortunately, the bacterium is familiar with the work of Charles Darwin, and as such, it is constantly mutating, evolving, and generally stayin' alive (stayin' alive).

How can diabetic medical supplies online help prevent epilepsy. According to this article, a new study suggests that people who have type 1 diabetes may be nearly thrice more likely to develop epilepsy than people who do not have type 1 diabetes. It logically follows that keeping diabetes under control will reduce the risk for epilepsy. Although the relationship between the two is very slim, it’s still good to know.  Better safe than sorry, right?

When you have to give one of your patients this difficult heartbreaking news, they will come up with a thousand questions about HIV/AIDS and although you might try to answer them all, this is a great resource you can guide them too.   A lot of people lately have forgotten that AIDS is still killing people. It seems like all of America has forgotten that HIV is a serious disease. Maybe it’s because AIDS was more the 80’s/90’s disease. AIDS it's really... retro. It's all about cancer now. But at Discount Medical Supplies we’re sure that AIDS is just as important as cancer. Not just sure, but HIV-positive.

Sleeping and snoring medical supplies could help prevent injury-related risk behaviors among high school students, such as infrequent bicycle helmet and car seatbelt use, riding with a drinking driver, drinking and driving, and texting while driving – what, no drinking and dialing? According to a recent CDC report, “insufficient sleep is common among high school students and has been associated with an increased risk for motor vehicle crashes, sports injuries, and occupational injuries.” The National Sleep Foundation recommends 8 to 10 hours of sleep for teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17 years. This can be achieved with good sleep hygiene (more on that later).

Submitted by Pablo Retana on 10:58

As the summer Olympics are around the corner in Brazil, there are growing concerns that the Zika threat will be aggravated and blown out of proportion. In the latest Vital Signs report, the CDC recommends using medical supplies online such as insect repellent and condoms in order to prevent the transmission of the Zika virus in Brazil, the United States or anywhere in the world. Only Aedes aegypti and another species of mosquito transmit Zika out of 176 species identified in the U.S.  – but then mosquitoes are the deadliest animals in the world because of the diseases they spread, so even just two are two too many. Especially when an infected female can keep on biting people for the rest of its 30-day life.
