Warts are caused by a group of virus called human papilloma viruses (HPV). There are more than 100 types of HPV. Warts usually appear on the face, hands, and feet, but can also appear anywhere on the body. Warts are usually painless but there are some that may cause cancer. According to researchers, over 90 percent of cervical cancers are related to HPV, especially HPV type 16 and 18.

Arthritis is a disorder that is becoming more common among young adults, especially women. There are many things that can cause arthritis. Some of the main ones are: repetitive use of joints, heavy labor, lack of sleep, poor diet, obesity, stress, vaccines, heredity, and viral or bacterial infections. People who have arthritis may experience joint pain, lost of mobility, swollen or deformed joint, stiffness and fatigue.
Acetaminophen, usually sold as Tylenol, is a non-prescription drug that is widely used for relieving pain. Many people who used acetaminophen do not realize the dangers that are hidden in it. Unintentional overdose on acetaminophen is more common than you may think. A few extra doses than what is recommended can cause liver toxicity and other health problems. Some of the reasons why you don not hear a lot about acetaminophen toxicity is because many people do not report it and the media does a poor job covering it, even when death is involved.
