May 23rd 2011 4:59PMIf only some years ago this so called olympic style drug testing is mandatory to every boxer, this addiction will not happen to Oscar. Too late, they want this testing to be implemented only with Manny Pacquiao throught the insinuations of the Floyd M. family. They accused Manny of taking Performance Enhancing Drugs without any true evidence of whatsoever just to ruin the minority and Filipino boxing reputation due to jealousy. Now what? LINTI GUID.

You can be included as one of the defendant in this case as you are accusing Manny of using steroids. The evidence comes from your mouth. Be prepared to support your claim. This lawsuit is still open to include anyone like you, so be careful.
Dec 23rd 2009 2:22PMDear Mr. Mike,
Have you heard about the word TRYPANOPHOBIA?. Not to insult your knowledge, I will explain it to you if you allow me. It is the extreme and irrational fear of medical procedures involving injections or hypodermic needles. Sometimes referred to as aichmophobia, belonephobia or enetophobia. The condition was officially recognized in 1994 as a specific phobia of blood/injection/injury type. Phobic levels responses to injections cause sufferers to avoid inoculations, blood tests, and in more severe cases, all medical care. An estimate of at least 10% of american adults are trypanophobic and is likely that the actual number is larger , as the most severe cases are never documented due to the tendency of the sufferer to simply avoid all medical treatment. Simply defined as an extreme fear of medically related shots/injections, it appears in several varieties.
a. Vasovagal- most common, 50%, fear the sight, thought or feeling of needles or needlelike objects. The primary symptom is syncope or fainting due to a decrease of blood pressure. One of a few phobias that can kill due to vasovagal shock reflex.
b. Associative- 30%, a classic specific phobia in which a traumatic event such as an extremely painful medical procedure or witnessing a family member or friend undergo such, causes the patient to associate all procedures involving needles with the original negative experience. Symptoms are primarily psychological such as extreme unexplained anxiety, insomnia, preoccupation with coming procedure and panic attacks.
c. Resistive- 20%, fears involves not simply needles or injections but also being controlled or restrained. Symptoms includes, combativeness, high heart rate coupled with extremely high blood pressure, violent resistance, avoidance and flight.
d. Hyperalgesic- 10%, an inhereted hypersentivity to pain or hyperalgesia with symptoms such as extreme explained anxiety, and elevated blood pressure and heart rate at the immediate point of needle penetration or seconds before.
I have seen a lot of people in different ethnic backgrounds suffering with this kind of PHOBIA. Being a dentist practicing for 22 years in New York City, all I can say is; I have seen a lot! How about you Mike?
