It isn’t every day that a woman loses both of her breasts due to cancer. One patient decided to make her double mastectomy surgery a happy occasion with a dance off in the operating room.
Obviously this is not normal procedure in the OR where the environment is usually staid, sterile and depressing.
But the nurses and doctors treating Deborah Cohan at UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion in San Francisco ignored the rules to dance to the strains of Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied” before Cohan went under the knife.
President Obama on Thursday apologized to Americans for lying to them about keeping their insurance policies when his problem-plagued Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, launched.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” Obama told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.
Approximately 3.5 million Americans received letters from their insurance companies informing them that their policies would be canceled. Some Americans had the same policies for decades. Now they face higher premiums for coverage they don’t need, such as maternity coverage for men.
“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this,” said Obama whose approval rating plunged to 39 percent this week.
A new type of Botox is so deadly that scientists are withholding the DNA sequence because there is no known antidote.

According to The NY Post, this is the first time the scientific community has withheld the DNA sequence information for Botox out of concern for the public’s safety.

The Gay agenda is ramping up their ‘Gay is normal’ campaign. Washingtontimes.com reports that the nation’s largest pediatrics group has updated its policy on homosexuality and children.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released its new policy advising doctors to fight “homophobia” and “heterosexism” by advising all children that homosexuality is “normal.”
The pediatrician’s group doesn’t explain how homosexuality is normal, but it suggests that heterosexuality should not be considered society’s sexual standard going forward.
