The fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is a lab test used to check stool samples for hidden (occult) blood.
Occult blood in the stool may indicate colon cancer or polyps in the colon or rectum — though not all cancers or polyps bleed.
Typically, occult blood is passed in such small amounts that it can be detected only through the chemicals used in a fecal occult blood test.
If blood is detected through a fecal occult blood test, additional tests may be needed to determine the source of the bleeding. The fecal occult blood test can only detect the presence or absence of blood — it doesn't indicate potential sources of bleeding.

Gizmag reviews the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, the best-looking smartphone we've used (which also happens to be a beast on the inside) (Credit: Will Shanklin/Gizmag)

For years, iPhones were the only smartphones with premium, elegant designs, while Android phones were better known as plastic or industrial-looking affairs. But recently we've seen several Android flagships play that game at least as well as Apple. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is the best example we've seen.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is a knock-down, drag-out, drop-dead gorgeous phone. We can't say we see curved screens as functional advantages, but they sure as hell look good. Not only does it make the S6 edge+ look like a piece of jewelry, but it also gives your content an extra dimension. It's not 3D, of course, but it is a bit like 2D that's reaching out towards you.
It's the same thing we saw in the smaller Galaxy S6 edge earlier this year, only that effect is more pronounced when the device is bigger.
Like its baby brother, the S6 edge+ has a smooth-feeling Gorilla Glass 4 back, with aluminum edges. The phone is also very light for its size (11 percent lighter than both the Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6 Plus) as well as thin (just 6.9 mm/0.27-inch). It ticks all the boxes we'd want a premium handset to tick.
It's essentially a lighter and thinner Galaxy Note 5, minus the S Pen and plus the curves. We aren't going to repeat ourselves too much here, so be sure to hit up our Note 5 review for more detail on the many things they have in common, including camera samples and battery tests.
Born in the same litter as the Note 5, that means the Galaxy S6 edge+ isn't just getting by on looks alone: it's also an absolute beast of a phone. Seamless performance, great battery life, built-in wireless charging and Samsung Pay on its way next month. Throw in the best rear camera and best display you'll find on any smartphone today, and you have a near-perfect 2015 flagship.
Because it lacks the Note's stylus, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is probably more of a direct rival to the iPhone 6 Plus (and, more so, its upcoming successor) than the Note 5 is. Jumping from the 2014 iPhone 6 Plus to the Edge+ is a big step forward. Samsung's phone is more compact, but its display is also better: bigger, much brighter on average, sharper and with better color accuracy. We think the Edge's camera quality is also a little better and its premium design at least matches – maybe even surpasses – the iPhone's.
On the whole, we'd still give the software edge to the iPhone. The Edge+ includes some carrier crapware, along with more than one pre-installed app each for messaging, web browsing, email, photo gallery and cloud storage. Multiple apps for that many categories could confuse beginners, not to mention it wastes internal storage. Too many cooks in the kitchen.
But otherwise we think the Note 5 and GS6 edge+ are standing in a league of their own right now. These are our picks for the 2015 phablet champions so far (though Apple won't announce its next model until September 9).
So if you're torn between the Note 5 and S6 edge+, which do you go with? Well, US carriers are charging about US$75 extra for the Edge+, so that's one notch in the Note's column. If you think there's any chance you'll ever want to use the Note's S Pen, that's another reason to go that route. You can use finger or stylus on the Note, but only your finger on the Edge+. The Note gives you more options for less money.
On the other hand, though the Note is quite the looker in its own right, the Edge+ is the better-looking, lighter and thinner device. You can also use the Edge Display to:
We find the Note's S Pen features to be more useful than these Edge Display features, which seem a bit like an attempt to turn a cosmetic perk into a functional one, but your mileage may vary.
Our best advice is to play around with the Note 5 in a store. If you think you'll use the S Pen at all, then go with the Note. If you have no interest in a stylus, and don't mind throwing down an extra $75, go with the better-looking, lighter and thinner S6 edge+.
No matter which way you go, though, you're getting a flipping outstanding smartphone. Big, beautiful, powerful and premium.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is available now, starting at around $775 full retail (it varies a bit from carrier to carrier), with installment options starting at $0 down with good credit.

Italian food is probably one of the most preferred foods around the globe. Very well-known outside it is country of origin, Italian culinary experts has was able to keep up with the same flavour and enthusiasm for food by maintaining the following points in mind when they prepare food. Italian meal constantly tastes much better when made from fresh ingredients. Frozen materials or materials from a supermarket where they may well be nearing their expiration date aren’t ideal. Furthermore, to improve the effect that the ingredients can have on thegreat recipes, make sure that the things you put in is fresh.
Figure out how to improvise. On the list of important things to keep in mind when you choose to prepare Italian meals is that there’s usually a viable replacement for an ingredient that isn’t on the market when you’re preparing food. As an example, using fettuccini in a recipes that historically calls for spaghetti isn’t a bad plan in any way. Look to save your time and methods. A lot of Italian culinary experts these days can tell you, that there’s no honour lost if you choose to buy the spaghetti you use from your supermarket, instead of making it by yourself. While making it completely from scratch can also be properly worth it, in case you are challenged for time, move on and see the best way you are able to minimise time wasted. Furthermore never discard a component that might live to view another day and include that special flavour to a meal you might make the next day.
Know whatever you can about pasta, that is almost important at any kind of Italian dinner table. As much as possible, make sure to use fresh garlic whenever you test out Italian preparing food. Cheese is yet another great player around the Italian cooking circuit, so it’s better to study as much as you are able to about the different types of cheese and the meals which they greatest complement. The components are necessary in Italian preparing food and using olive oil (ideally extra virgin olive oil) instead of margarine or butter is important. This mixed with let’ say fresh cherry tomatoes instead of tinned tomatoes after which making certain not to overcook the pasta (which is actually a mistake lots of people make) means general a good pasta meal. A glass of red Italian wine tends to make a excellent addition but keep to one glass but not one bottle. Preparing food is definitely an art form almost, for a lot of Italian cooks and you’re able to get a taste for olive oil and lots of ingredients, even in case you don’t take to them instantly. Follow, practice and make cooking delicious and healthy food a habit instead of a treat.

Os alimentos ricos em magnésio são principalmente sementes, como as sementes de abóbora ou as sementes de girassol, frutas secas como amêndoa e vegetais, como a acelga.
O magnésio é um mineral essencial utilizado, principalmente, na síntese de proteínas e no transporte de energia, facilitando a transmissão dos impulsos nervosos e regularizando as contrações musculares. Para saber mais sobre magnésio veja: Magnésio.
Um adulto saudável necessita de uma quantidade entre 310 mg a 420 mg de magnésio por dia para manter uma vida saudável e um bom funcionamento cerebral. Para saber mais sobre o magnésio e o cérebro veja: Magnésio melhora o funcionamento do cérebro.
Falta de magnésio no organismo
A falta de magnésio no organismo pode trazer sintomas desagradáveis para o indivíduo, tais como:
Os remédios que podem provocar uma baixa concentração de magnésio no sangue são: ciclosserina, furosemina, tiazidas, hidroclorotiazidas, tetraciclinas e contraceptivos de uso oral.
Quando devo tomar magnésio?
Recomenda-se a suplementação com magnésio quando os valores de magnésio no sangue ficam inferiores a 1mEq por litro de sangue, em caso de contrações uterinas precoces durante a gravidez e em caso de vômitos ou diarreias, pois perde-se muito magnésio desta forma.
É importante ressaltar que, caso haja a suplementação de magnésio durante a gravidez, ela deve cessar por volta da 35º semana de gestação, para que o útero consiga contrair-se corretamente e assim o bebê nascer.
A necessidade de suplementação com magnésio é rara, pois uma boa alimentação fornece o magnésio necessário ao organismo. A suplementação em magnésio deve ser feita com acompanhamento médico ou de um nutricionista, pois o magnésio em excesso pode provocar sintomas como enjoos, vômito e dor de cabeça.

Proposé jusqu’au 12 août sur Kickstarter, A-Bike Electric se veut être le vélo électrique le plus compact mais aussi le plus léger. Pouvant se plier et se déplier en quelques secondes, ce projet déjà financé a été pensé afin d’optimiser les efforts à produire pour son utilisateur, sa facilité pour le transporter et son gain de place, proposant notamment une batterie amovible de 24V qui peut permettre de rouler 25 km.
This amazing collection of colourised photographs was taken by an American photographer Branson DeCou (1892-1941) between 1932 and 1935. DeCou spent nearly thirty years travelling the world and his images of Ireland give us a rare glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared. His fantastic catalogue of photos is now stored at the University of California, Santa Cruz where they can be accessed digitally here. The photos were originally taken in black and white and colour was then added by DeCou with aniline ink.
