The bone marrow registry-all you need to know

The South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR) really has its work cut out for it when it comes to refining and growing their database of potential bones marrow donors. Every year thousands of individuals with blood diseases such as leukemia, marrow failure or aplasia, and inherited metabolic and immune deficiency syndromes reach a stage where only a bone marrow transplant offers a chance of cure. With a 1-in-200 000 chance of finding a non-related bone marrow match, the bigger the registry is, the better the chances of finding someone who can save a life.  We take a look at the ins-and-outs of becoming a bone marrow donor.

Hair loss in women - is it normal?

As ladies, we’ve all looked at our shower or bath drain and seen strands of our hair clogging up the water flow.  Research shows that at least 1 in 3 women will suffer from hair loss or reduced hair volume at some point in their lifetime, so there’s no need to worry about normal hair loss, which amounts to about 80 strands every day. But if you’re seeing significantly more hair in your drain or on your brush than normal, you may want to look at the triggers that could be causing you to shed more of your locks, and get the attention you need.
