Oral cancer or mouth cancer usually appears as growths or sores which refuse to heal or go away. These symptoms can lead to some life-threatening conditions if they are not treated properly or at an early stage. There are no guaranteed cures for cancer, it is advisable that if you encounter any of these symptoms, you should get yourself checked by a doctor. These are 10 symptoms one should watch for when it comes to mouth cancer.

This is a symptom of the common cold. However, a prolonged or never ending sore throat is a strong indication of something much more serious than a common cold. The person will develop soreness in the mouth and will feel like there is something stuck at the back of the throat. If you have this feeling for a long time, go to a doctor asap.

Sudden or drastic fluctuations of weight can be symptoms of cancer as well. If you seem to notice an extreme weight difference in your body without any reason, consult a doctor.

5 Small changes in your voice or speech pattern

If you or people who are close to you observe any small, unexplained changes in the tone of your voice or a difference in your speech pattern, you should get it checked out immediately.

Soft Drink after hot exercise endangers kidney.

Published

Downing a cool soft drink after a hot workout can feel refreshing. However, according to the latest research, it may cause further dehydration and interfere with kidney function.

Caffeinated soft drinks that are high in fructose are hugely popular worldwide. They need no introduction.



The beverages have been widely lambasted for their potential role in both the obesity and diabetes crises, and a recent study may add a fresh health risk to the growing list.

Researchers from the University at Buffalo in New York recently assessed soft drinks’ impact on kidney health when consumed during and after physical exertion.

When we exercise in a hot environment, blood that flows through the kidneys is reduced. This helps regulate blood pressure and conserve water. It is a normal response and causes no harm.

However, in clinical settings, a steep drop in blood flow through the kidneys can cause acute kidney injury (AKI) because of the accompanying drop in oxygen supply to the tissues.

Earlier studies have shown that exercise, in general, but particularly in higher temperatures, increases biomarkers of AKI.

At the same time, research also indicates that consuming a high-fructose soft drink increases AKI risk in rats experiencing dehydration.
