For some reasons unknown, some women get bladder infections repeatedly. This is called chronic cystitis. According to Dr. Robert Pugach, a Medical Director at Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center, the main key in preventing infections is urinating. Urinating several times daily prevents bladder infections by flushing bacteria out of the urethra.
Although the prostate may be out of site, it should not be out of mind. Men have a gland, which is located underneath the bladder and just above the rectum, called the prostate gland. It is said to be approximately the size of a small plum or somewhat bigger than a walnut. The prostate gland, shaped like a donut, encases a part of the urethra. The urethra is the canal that carries the urine and the semen to the exterior opening of the penis.

They say that men with a full head of hair command more respect, make more money, and get more dates. Now, one wouldn’t expect that an all-pro wide receiver felt he was lacking in any of those categories, but Denver Bronco Wes Welker certainly appreciates the advantages of a full head of hair. In the summer of 2012, when he was playing for the New England Patriots, the wide receiver underwent a hair transplant to remediate the hair thinning that most men experience as they age.
