Distinguishing between hemorrhoids and more serious conditions

Many New York residents will rely on Internet information to treat an irritating physical condition, but it is important to understand the importance of a proper medical diagnosis in certain situations. Rectal and colon issues, for example, can be mistaken for hemorrhoids due to similarities in symptoms. Unfortunately, ignoring a more serious condition could lead to a delay in treatment, which could also decrease the potential for a good outcome.

Automated cars and accident fault in New York

Automated cars are expected to become far more available to residents of New York and around the country in the next few years. Google has been testing its fleet of self-driving cars for a while, and Mercedes-Benz has already introduced a car that has semi-autonomous features. Tesla has also just recently launched a beta test of its self-driving automobiles, and there are rumors that Apple may start to work on an automated vehicle as well.

Motor vehicle traffic fatalities continue to decline

Drivers in the state of New York are among the least likely to die in a motor vehicle accident, according to statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2013, the state's motor vehicle traffic fatality rate was 6.7 per 100,000 people, making it the third-safest state behind Massachusetts and New Jersey, for which the CDC reported rates of 5.6 and 6.3 per 100,000, respectively. The District of Columbia led the list at 4.6 deaths per 100,000 people.

Early detection of breast cancer important for survival chances

New York women should know that a study demonstrated that catching breast cancer at an early stage still matters when it comes to determining how long a cancer patient is likely to live after diagnosis. The study was published in a medical journal in October 2015.

The causes of birth asphyxia

Birth asphyxia occurs in approximately four of every 1,000 full-term births around the United States. It may happen more frequently during premature births. New York couples who are expecting a child may want to learn more about this potentially troublesome birth injury.

Dangers of fog for drivers

New York drivers who have driven in foggy conditions may be aware of some of the challenges fog can present, but even experienced drivers may underestimate the extent of those risks. Unfortunately, the data on fog danger is sparse although what little research exists suggests that it can be very hazardous.
