We have prepared another collection of interesting and useful publications posted by doctors on the Internet over the past week. Vaccination is still an important topic among them. Also read about common medical swindles, fired doctors, healthy lifestyles, and women in medicine.

Let's start with the most joyful and progressive. An article has appeared that answers the most common medical question. It is difficult to say which medical issue is the most important, but the most pressing for patients is the riddle "is it possible to drink alcohol if you take antibiotics." Alexey Vodovozov tells everything there is to say about this.

About quackery

Petr Talantov, a well-known popularizer of scientific medical knowledge, told how you can kill people using Instagram. In his opinion, which seems reasonable to us, a social network page dedicated to alternative methods of treatment can do a lot of trouble. Talanov talks about the leader of her "bulshit rating", "Dr. Zubareva", who gives extremely controversial advice on her blog, and also travels around with lectures.

Other materials about medical quackery also appeared. The article "The illusion of detoxification: according to scientists, there is no evidence of the usefulness of post-holiday cleansing of the body" tells about the myth of cleansing the body. It's worth reading.

The public "Scientific skepticism" tells about the pseudoscientific figure Pyotr Gariaev, who offers getting rid of telegonia (!). With the help of a special technique, he promises to return energetic virginity to women. We strongly discourage this technique.

Here is a case not quite according to our profile, but we cannot pass by. Zoya Systryak, a renowned science popularizer and veterinarian, is threatened with legal action. The problem arose after she wrote in her blog that the effectiveness of the drug "Forvet" was not proven. Representatives of the manufacturer demanded that the post be removed, worrying about its reputation.

Women's Day

In connection with the past International Women's Day, posts have appeared telling about the contribution of women to medicine. Here are the stories of Maud Abbott, who compiled the first atlas of congenital heart prophets, and Hele Taussig, who performed the first heart surgery on a child with blue heart disease.

On the same occasion, Meduza's material about women surgeons, which, perhaps, many have already seen. Why is surgery still considered a male profession? For those who repeat the phrase "A woman-surgeon is like a guinea pig: not a woman and not a surgeon" a separate place should be prepared in hell.

On SciOne, oncologist Ilya Fomintsev talks about how not to die of breast cancer: how to prevent the disease, how to detect it at an early stage, what to fear and what not to be afraid of. An insightful video that sheds light on the issues that everyone needs to understand.

About vaccination

Vaccination publications cannot be bypassed. Expert published an interview with Daria Tserkovnaya, a member of the research group The Vaccine Confidence Project, about the refusal of vaccinations, its causes and consequences.

Fedor Katasonov, a pediatrician at the GMS Clinic Center for Congenital Pathology, told The Insider about measles vaccination.

You can and should watch as Dr. Utin on SciOne answers popular questions about vaccinations. What is better, to get sick and get powerful natural immunity or get vaccinated? Can children with snot be vaccinated? What tests can show the risk of vaccination complications? Are formaldehyde, mercury and aluminum in vaccines dangerous?

Other Topics

For parents. On " Just ask " there is an interesting and useful "Test for an Evidence Parent", which will help you figure out what guides you in matters concerning the child's health: persistent prejudices or scientifically based information. The good thing about the test is that it explains why different options are correct or not.

Video about doctors who had to say goodbye to work because of disagreement with the management. Those who dared to declare problems in the institution, demand from the management normal working conditions and the sharing of responsibility for the life and health of the patient. The problem is discussed from different sides, specific cases are given.

An interesting article on Meduza is relevant for a huge number of people who lead an unhealthy lifestyle, do not want to change it, but want to get sick less and live longer. How to mitigate the health effects of blatantly poor lifestyle choices.
