[PT-DVD… In part, due to a colonoscopy, where the hospital so innocently “Repositioned the Patient” (ME), supposedly for ease of access, working the Colonoscope through the colon…
But… an external, X-Rated, Pornographic quality photo, of an overexposed man, from an extremely indignant angle… left this “PATIENT” In disgust for the entire medical profession.
Imagine if you can, the position, of a male prostitute in a gay brothel; a porn model getting his professional portrait taken, butt high in the air, knees wide apart, everything private to MOST MEN dangling uncovered, unprotected… I AM NOT one of these men.
Nor do I appreciate someone taking a photo of my reproductive devices, dangling, for all to gawk at, especially not while another spreads my CHEEKS apart… no nude photos, for any reason, or excuse.
It is not, as one Gastroenterologist explained… the intent of the photo that matters… to this FAMILY MAN… it is the indignity and unnecessary exposure that matters PERIOD! ]
An increasingly popular but still unproven techology involves testing saliva taken from mouth swabs. Saliva testing has the advantage of being less invasive than either urine or blood tests. So far, tests have shown them to be inconsistent and unreliable when it comes to detecting marijuana, but that hasn't stopped them from being used. The sensitivity of saliva tests hasn't been clearly established, but may range from a few hours to a day or more. While it might be supposed that mouthwash is a helpful defense against saliva tests, this isn't necessarily the case, since the tests are supposed to detect drug residues that are exuded from the body's internal mouth tissues into the saliva.
