There are many cases of cancerous tumors within the human body.

Different types and forms of cancer can affect different parts of the body. While some grow rapidly and spread throughout the body, others remain localized in one area. The treatment options for cancer vary depending on the area. Fortunately, cancers rarely spread outside the body. However, they may come back if left untreated.

While many types of cancer are still unknown, they are generally classified according the type of cell involved. Carcinomas are the most common types of cancer and make up approximately 90% of all cancers in the human body. Sarcoma is another type of cancer that is uncommon and is characterised by solid tumors in connective tissue. Lymphomas are caused by immune system cells.

Cases of brain-eating amoeba in our waters

Naegleria Fowleri is a brain eating amoeba known for causing serious illnesses. It can enter your body through the nose, travel to your brain and destroy brain tissue. This amoeba is a dangerous pathogen that causes severe illness and even death. It can spread easily through water systems. It has been a rising concern among young people.

This single-celled organism is found in warm fresh water as well as the soil. When people breathe in contaminated water, they may develop a severe headache and fever. You may also notice stiff necks, seizures and mental problems. In rare cases, patients may even go into a coma. These symptoms can be caused by toxic substances that build up in the brain due to the infection.

There are cases of hearing voices within the human body

Hearing voices is a common experience, and it can have many positive and negative effects on lives. For some, these voices can be encouraging and positive. Others hear voices that they find frightening or threatening. Others hear voices they are connected to someone they love or have lost.

Researchers studied the auditory cortex in healthy subjects and patients with schizophrenia. This area is responsible for hearing sound and is set up during infancy. This brain area is crucial for hearing sound. However, it doesn't rely on higher-order cognitive functions.

The belly button is a potential source of bacteria

The bacterial communities that live in the belly button can be as diverse and varied as any other part of the body. On average, each belly button contained 67 distinct bacterial phylotypes. While some taxa found in the belly buttons are similar to those that can be found on the skin they also differ in other ways.

Candida infections can develop in the belly button of people with high blood sugar. Diabetic patients are at greater risk of developing bacterial infections. Dead skin cells or sebum may also be a source of contamination. This can result in stone-like bodies within the umbilicus.

Which is the most mysterious spot on Earth?

Antarctica is the world's most mysterious place on Earth.

We find this place so fascinating. It is unlike any other place on Earth.

It is remote, isolated, and extremely difficult to visit. It is not what you see.

Some of the most bizarre wildlife species can also be found in this natural wonder.

Let's find out how this mysterious destination became so famous.

Antarctica: The South Pole

It is not known why Antarctica was called Antarctica. Some believe it means "land of ice." Others think it comes from Greek mythology.

Antarktis, the Greek name for the island on which Zeus' twin brothers were conceived, was used in ancient Greece. According to legend, one of the twins was born in winter. Thus, the term antarctic.

Others think the name came from the Greek words anti, meaning against, and tropos meaning turn. This would translate to land that is turned away from the sun.

No matter the reason, Antarctica is a place that has always fascinated people.

It is also the lowest, windiest continent, driest, and highest. Because it is so cold, there aren't any trees, plants or animals.

And yet, this frozen wasteland is teeming with life.

Here, 90 percent live of all species of living things. There are about 50% of the world's animal, plant and plant species.

What is the secret to Antarctica's unique environment? Here, water freezes into ice instead of evaporating into the air.

This causes large masses to form of ice which float high above the ground.

These glaciers are responsible for covering 80% of the continent. These glaciers are getting larger each year.

So far, the Antarctic ice sheet has grown 60 feet since 1960.

If the melting continues, sea level could rise up to 200ft. That could cause massive flooding around the globe.

This is not necessarily bad news. Global warming may be beneficial for some scientists. They say that as temperatures rise, the ice sheets might melt faster, causing floods that flush out tons of toxic chemicals from our soil and bodies.

However, others caution that this theory sounds a lot like a plot in a science fiction movie.

How does the brain regulate the functions of the body?

The brain sends messages to other organs and muscles to ensure they work together. Your brain controls all that happens in your body. It tells the stomach to digest food, and the lungs to breath air. It also tells your legs and arms to move.

Your brain is made up billions of nerve cell networks connected in groups known as neurons. Action potentials are electrical signals that neurons send to one another. Each neuron is covered by a cell membrane. Channels within the membrane allow ions such potassium and sodium to enter and leave the cells. Ion movement is what causes the neurons to fire.

Neurotransmitters, chemical substances that are released when a neuron fires. Neurotransmitters are able to bind to receptors in the second neuron. This opens ion channels that allow ions to flow in and out. As a result, second neuron fires as well.

Neurotransmitter release occurs when the presynaptic neuron receives an impulse from another neuron. The impulse travels along an synapse between the neurons. The transmitter binds directly to the receptors in the postsynaptic nervous neuron, and triggers the firing.

For communication within the nervous systems, neurotransmitters are essential. They also help coordinate activity between different parts of the brain.

What dark secrets are there in Hollywood?

Hollywood is full of secret societies. Some secret societies are cultlike groups that have strict rules and rituals. Other clubs are for people who share common interests.

However, there are many other criminal organizations that hold much of the industry's power. There are companies like the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), who sets film ratings and the RIAA, which sets music licensing fees.

Numerous unions, guilds, and associations represent actors, writers, producers, editors, and other creative professionals. Most major movie studios and television networks are owned by large corporations which own these various organizations.

The point is that no matter how secretive any group may seem, someone somewhere knows exactly what they do. However, we shouldn't fear them.

Instead, embrace them. Because they provide us with information that helps us make better decisions.

They tell us what movies will likely succeed, what songs will be popular, and what books will best sell.

They help us make decisions about what we will buy, watch, listen to, or read.

We can trust our advisors and ignore advice that isn't in accord with our tastes.

They are more powerful than ever because we chose to ignore them. They become the ultimate arbiters of taste.

They can be ignored if you don’t like what they have to say.

Let's now look at some lesser-known, but still very real Hollywood secret organizations.

And see why they're so important.

What is your most secretive community?

The answer to that question may shock you. You might be uncomfortable with the truth of it, as it may challenge your perception of reality. But there is a reason why this place exists. And it is not what you would expect.

It was known as the City of God to the ancient Greeks. It was also called the City of Destruction in the Bible.

In India, it's called Kashi (Kashmir). In Russia, it's called Novgorod.

Here in America, however, it is called The Village That Disappeared.

One small New York State town with just 1,200 people vanished. There were no bodies, cars or houses left behind, but a road sign that pointed to the former location was all that was left.

This little community vanished and no trace remains to indicate where or when it disappeared. Some say the earth swallowed it up. Others claim a meteorite strike destroyed it. Some believe that it was taken by aliens.

Despite what may have happened, the people who lived in this once-thriving area are confident that their town will not be lost forever. They had just moved from one town to the other.

Even a website exists to help track down the disappearances of the lost city Zugspitz.

So, where exactly did this town go? It's actually in Switzerland!

You can find Zugspitze at the border of Austria and Germany. A huge lake, Lake Zugspitze, is located just beyond the summit.

It has always fascinated me that so many towns have disappeared, yet some still remain. What is the difference between some towns that disappear and others that survive? I decided to investigate.

I was curious about the disappearing towns. Is it possible for a place to vanish? How does one place go extinct?

There are many theories to explain the phenomenon of disappearing towns. One theory suggests that a community disappears when all of its buildings are removed. Another theory says that the town just moves. Another theory suggests that the town has never existed.

There are many theories, but the truth is that thousands of towns around the world have been submerged by the earth. This video examines both the history and current status.
