Injections of Botox into the penis probably are the most effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. Every artery and vein in the body is surrounded by a layer of smooth muscle. Otherwise there could not be variations in blood pressure. When the muscles around blood vessels contract, this is called vadoconstriction. When the muscles around blood vessels relax, this is called vasodilation.

Botox Claimed To Be A Treatment For Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects hundreds of millions of men. Many of these men could potentially permanently overcome their sexual dysfunction by changing their lifestyle and simply live a healthier life.

However, many men treat erectile dysfunction by using drugs like Pfizer’s Blue, Tadalafil, and Vardenafil. Now, there is also a new candidate for treating erectile dysfunction: Botox.

Please note that Truelibido does not support using pharmaceutical drugs or Botox to deal with erectile dysfunction. These remedies only treat symptoms but do nothing to permanently solve these problems.

Two Canadian urologists believe that the Botox injections can increase blood flow to the penis by paralyzing the nerves in the penis that instruct the smooth muscles to contract. The injection would last for about 6 months and patients would then need to get new injections every six months. The treatment is claimed to be safe and has not had any side effects.

We are highly skeptical. Keep in mind that Botox is a neurotoxin. It paralyzes the nerve system and is in some studies reported to not remain in the local area of injection, but can spread throughout the body.

Arthur Schopenhauer, the greatest German philosopher, on women:

Only a male intellect clouded by the sexual drive could call the stunted, narrow-shouldered, broad-hipped and short-legged sex the fair sex … More fittingly than the fair sex, women could be called the unaesthetic sex. Neither for music, nor poetry, nor the plastic arts do they possess any real feeling of receptivity: if they affect to do so, it is merely mimicry in service of their effort to please.

Anesthesia Awareness: Breaking Down the Barriers to Prevention

Opinions surrounding intraoperative awareness may vary, but one thing is certain, even a single case is one too many.

The clinical definition of intraoperative awareness — consciousness during general anesthesia — is a seemingly simple explanation for a complex, and controversial, phenomenon. Opinions surrounding how often intraoperative awareness, also described as anesthesia awareness, occurs, its implications for victims, as well as the best methods for prevention are varied.

But for Carol Weihrer, the issue is crystal clear. Weihrer, who claims she was conscious during a 1998 surgical procedure to remove her right eye, believes that anesthesia awareness is more widespread and debilitating than people realize. And she has the proof, she says, to back-up her claim.

“I have spoken to thousands of people with experiences similar to mine,” said Weihrer. “People like me, whose lives have been turned upside down because of it.”

As founder of the international Anesthesia Awareness Campaign, Weihrer’s goal is to educate the public about the phenomenon and to be a touchstone for other victims.

Weihrer is also lobbying for the mandated use of brain function monitors for patients undergoing general anesthesia. She believes that until these monitors become a standard of care, patients must be proactive in protecting themselves in the OR. “It’s not enough to ask whether a facility has brain function monitors or whether they use them. You must demand that they use them on you during your surgery,” she explained.

Tracking brain waves When used in the OR, brain function monitors reportedly measure a patient’s depth of anesthesia and level of consciousness. One of the most popular tools for this purpose is bispectral index (BIS) technology.

Aspect Medical’s BIS monitor involves measuring the brain’s electrical activity through a sensor placed on the patient’s forehead. The BIS value ranges from 100 (indicating an awake patient) to zero (indicating the absence of brain activity). This information is used to guide administration of anesthetic medication. Aspect’s BIS technology is available as a stand-alone monitor or as a module that can be incorporated into other manufacturers’ monitoring systems.

Irene Osborn, M.D., associate professor of Anesthesiology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, and director, Division of Neuroanesthesia, began using BIS technology in 1996 while at NYU Medical Center and currently uses it in about 80 percent of the surgeries she performs. She says it has definitely made an impact on her ability to care for patients.

“The ability to monitor the brain really helps you improve anesthetic care,” said Dr. Osborn. “There is variability in patients’ response to anesthesia — not everyone requires the same dose or concentration,” she continued. “With BIS, I can separate out the different components of anesthesia and determine how much anesthetic is needed for a particular patient.”

Dr. Osborn uses BIS technology to improve the quality of anesthesia and also to monitor for awareness. Often times Versed is administered just prior to surgery to produce amnesia. With the BIS monitor, Dr. Osborn says she can see the effects of the Versed dose and increase it if necessary.

“In the OR there is a lot of monitoring going on — heart rate, blood pressure and various body systems. With BIS, I can also monitor the brain,” Dr. Osborn said.

Not ready for prime time? The American Society of Anesthesiology’s (ASA) “Practice Advisory for Intraoperative Awareness and Brain Function Monitoring” makes several recommendations to assist decision-making for patient care with the goal of reducing awareness, but stops short of mandating the use of brain function monitors for this purpose. Instead, the ASA advises anesthesiologists to use their own discretion when it comes to using the monitors.

Although she personally chooses to use brain function monitoring, Dr. Osborn understands why many of her colleagues have yet to embrace it.

“Brain function monitoring technology is not yet good enough, it’s not real time,” explained Dr. Osborn. “What you see on the monitor reflects something that happened 15 seconds ago.”

Others may simply not want to take the time to understand the monitors. If, for example, there was no muscle relaxant administered to the patient, there may be EMG artifact on the monitor and anesthesiologists must be familiar in working around that, says Dr. Osborn. The monitor will not predict movement, rather, it tells how asleep the patient is.

At Mount Sinai, Dr. Osborn estimates that one-third of the physicians use the technology quite frequently, one-third use it for special cases and one-third refuse to use it at all. She does believe, however, that brain function monitors will become standard operating procedure in all hospitals in about 10 years.

“As the technology matures and as we train another generation of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists on how to use it, more will want it and the timing will be right for it to become a standard of care,” Dr. Osborn said.

Determined that this is the case — sooner rather than later — Weihrer has taken her Anesthesia Awareness Campaign on the road, speaking both nationally and internationally to physician groups and other organizations. She has performed Grand Rounds, speaking to anesthesia staff at several East Coast hospitals about her own and others’ experiences. She has worked with The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), American Association of periOperative Nurses (AORN) and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), and says she is currently collaborating with the ASA on an anesthesia awareness victims database. MedicAlert bracelets are available through the campaign for patients who have suffered awareness in the past or have a familial disposition to anesthesia awareness.

“The Anesthesia Awareness Campaign is definitely gaining momentum,” Weihrer said. “The public is becoming more involved and demanding assurances.”

Weihrer says she will continue to advocate for change in the OR until her efforts are no longer needed — until brain function monitors are used on every general anesthesia patient and there are no more anesthesia awareness victims.

Dubai in United Arab Emirates a centre of human trafficking and prostitution

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Imagine if you were told of well-paid work in a new country, far from your impoverished home. Once you arrived, you learned the only way to make the promised money was through prostitution. That's what happened to 24-year-old Ethiopian Tsega*.

She sits on a bar stool in a dark basement bar in the old quarter of Dubai, dressed in a short skirt. Her hair is bleached.

"I started working in a supermarket, but life is so expensive here," she says.

Tsega's fate is shared with thousands of women in the United Arab Emirates. The country, and especially Dubai, one of the seven emirates, is known as a centre for prostitution and sex tourism in the Middle East.

Some estimates have as many as 30,000 sex workers in Dubai alone.

It is one of the many in the emirate where prostitutes offer their services openly, even though prostitution is strictly forbidden in the UAE and sharia courts can impose flogging as punishment.

For Tsega, there wasn't any money left from her monthly salary of 5000 Emirati dirhams ($1980) to send home to her sick mother. Now she earns about 20,000 dirhams a month.

"My family would never take the money if they knew. It's a big secret," she whispers and adds: "This work is really terrible.

"I think that in three months I will have earned enough and will go home."

A Filipino rock band starts playing and a German tourist comes over and asks where she is from.

In a nightclub on the top floor of a hotel in the northern city of Ras al-Khaima, six women in nylon dresses slowly circle on a stage lit by coloured spotlights. Plastic flower garlands hang around their necks. The walls are draped with purple and red velvet. At the tables in front of the stage, men dressed in the traditional Emirati long white garb known as a dishdasha are drinking strong liquor and smoking water pipes. The keyboard player sings in Iraqi Arabic: "Don't be so cruel, Syrian woman. This man is fed up with waiting. You are so stubborn. Bring your price down."

Sex services in the country are also openly advertised on websites and social media. How many women do this work of their own free will and how many are coerced is unknown, says Sara Suhail, director of the Ewa'a shelters for trafficked women and children. Most of the victims had been offered a respectable job as a receptionist in a hotel or as a secretary in the UAE while still in their home countries, she explains from her office at a shelter in an Abu Dhabi suburb. "They are often lured to the country by a friend or family member and don't suspect anything."

This was also the case with 19-year old Oksana, of Uzbekistan, who has long brown hair and is wearing a wide flower-print dress. She has been staying in the shelter for a few months now. Her best friend and her best friend's mother, who had earlier moved to Abu Dhabi, persuaded her to come too, saying many well-paid jobs were available.

Soon after however, her friend's mother told her to spend the night with an old Afghan man.

"Luckily, when I started crying, he didn't touch me," Oksana says in a soft voice. Instead he gave the mother 20,000 dirhams for the costs she had incurred in bringing the girl to the country. "But she didn't release me and instead found another man interested in a virgin like me." She managed to escape and the mother and daughter are now in prison.

Maitha al-Mazrouei, a shelter employee says helping victims of sexual abuse is something new in the Gulf region. "Most people don't know that prostitutes are often forced. It's still a big taboo." She shows the bedrooms with the bunk beds, the large kitchen and the rooms where painting and other creative courses take place.

Two Nigerian women are knitting in the living room in front of the TV.

"We want to go home," one of them whispers.

Dubai, Sharjah and Ras al-Khaima also have shelters, all opened by the National Committee to Combat Human Trafficking after a law was passed in 2006 criminalising human trafficking. So far, fewer than 250 women and children have stayed in the shelters.

The number of victims who have received shelter has decreased in the past few years, the director says, thanks to the state's efforts in combating trafficking. The women are encouraged to take legal action, but in 2014, only 15 women took their cases to court.

However, Rothna Begum, researcher at Human Rights Watch, thinks that the number of victims who receive assistance, and the number of prosecutions are far lower than would conceivably be expected for a country known for its high rate of trafficking. "The UAE authorities would like to consider that the drop in cases is because of successful deterrence, but in fact, the success would be noted if there were more successful prosecutions", she said.

An activist for migrants' rights from one of the Persian Gulf countries, who asked not to be named after having received threats, says that "literally on a monthly basis" they receive reports about domestic workers being sold into sex slavery upon arrival in Dubai.

The government and recruitment agencies prefer not to upset the status quo, because they benefit from it economically, the activist says.

10 Most Brutal Prisons in the World

Prisons – there’s no escaping it. If you dump a large number of violent criminals together and offer them no hope and no future, there are bound to be problems. Life behind bars can often be just as brutal as life on the outside – for some offenders, even more so. What’s more, on top of vicious inmates and sadistic guards, prisoners also face the sometimes extreme difficulties of overcrowding, poor hygiene, and bad sanitation. To deal with their harsh environments, lifetime criminals often have to toughen up and “switch off” even more. From the threat of deadly prison gangs to the fear of being unexpectedly shanked in the shower, life in jail must take its toll on any inmate’s mental state. And as a result, prison counselors have clearly got their work cut out for them. Still, as they say, “It’s a dangerous job, but somebody’s got to do it.”

10. Bang Kwang Central Prison – Nonthaburi Province, Thailand 10-Bang-Kwang-Central-Prison–Nonthaburi-Province-Thailand

Nicknamed the “Bangkok Hilton” by foreigners, Bang Kwang Central Prison is a notorious maximum-security facility just outside Bangkok that deals with death-row inmates and serious lifetime offenders. All Bang Kwang prisoners are forced to wear leg irons for their first three months of incarceration – and death row inmates have them permanently welded on. The prison provides one bowl of vegetable soup with rice a day, with prisoners also allocated cooking facilities and being expected to buy ingredients from the prison canteen. Fresh fruit, insect repellent and ketchup are luxury items. Since May this year, visitors have been banned from bringing prisoners food, clothes and other items. Bang Kwang is extremely overcrowded and offers nothing in the form of mental stimulation, exercise, creativity or rehabilitation. Inmates are pretty much left to their own devices, and up to 70 percent of them are said to have succumbed to depression. “I see a lot of people who are losing their minds. I see men turn into zombies, literally tuning out and existing in a numb-state. It is a struggle to stay sane here,” said one Canadian inmate. Human rights organizations have complained about Bang Kwang’s lack of medical care and sanitation and have cited the facility for overcrowding, its reputed use of torture, and its insistence that inmates wear restraints. In 2012, police raided seven zones of the prison and discovered 40,470 baht ($1,318) in cash, pornography, crystal meth, and smuggled mobile phones. 9. Nairobi Prison – Nairobi, Kenya 9-Nairobi-Prison–Nairobi-Kenya

Nairobi Prison was built in 1911 to house 800 prisoners, but by 2003, the inmate population had already exceeded 3,000. Unsurprisingly, in view of such extreme overcrowding, sanitation, hygiene and general living conditions have been severely affected. Officials don’t even have enough uniforms for all the inmates. Located in the industrial quarter of Nairobi and described as a “maze of chain-link fences, razor wire and guard towers,” the prison is thought to be one of the most congested in the world. Cells reek of sweat, filth and human waste, and the stench of raw sewage hangs in the air. “This is the worst prison I have ever seen. Everything about this place is bad, including the treatment from the wardens,” said Nigerian inmate Colin Alexander. “We are surviving by the grace of God – I don’t think any human being can survive here.” In a prison where simply staying physically and mentally healthy is a struggle, reports continue to circulate about brutality and torture. “The story is the same everywhere in our jails,” explains frustrated prison official David Mwania. “Congestion because of delays in court cases, leading to more and more congestion. There is a lack of funds to provide for basic essentials for inmates. Simply, the system cannot cope anymore.” 8. Rikers Island – New York, USA 8-Rikers-Island–New-York-USA

New York’s Rikers Island gained a reputation for violence in the 1990s, when stabbings, murders and other attacks (on fellow inmates and guards) were common and unlikely to result in any punishment. Inmates have described the prison as rougher than the roughest New York streets. The list of documented attacks and guard-related assault cover-ups in Rikers is huge. Corrupt guards have even used inmates as “enforcers.” In 2008, an inquiry was launched following rumors of an inmate fight club instigated by prison guards. In October that year, 18-year-old prisoner Christopher Robinson was beaten to death by teenage inmates while guards “looked the other way.” Subsequently, three guards and three inmates faced charges. In the end, two of the guards were charged and imprisoned. The other guard is awaiting sentence, and in total, 12 inmates were implicated in the scandal. In response to the violence, prison officials clamped down in 2009 by searching cells daily for homemade weapons, using SWAT teams to break up prison riots and transforming Rikers into one of the strictest prisons in the country. That year, annual stabbings fell from 1,000 to around 70. Still, graphic images of inmate injuries released in 2012 suggest that violence remains a problem in Rikers. While the Correctional Department insists the improvements are real and lasting, insiders suggest that violence is once again escalating in one of America’s most notorious prisons. Well-known inmates in Rikers include John Lennon’s murderer Mark Chapman, David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz, and rappers Tupac Shakur, Lil Wayne and Foxy Brown. 7. Black Beach – Malabo, Equatorial Guinea 7-Black-Beach–Malabo-Equatorial-Guinea

Black Beach is a sinisterly named internment facility in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea that is synonymous with rat infestations, inmate overcrowding, malnutrition, sadistic guards and brutality. It was not unheard of for prisoners to die from chronic disease or even disappear completely in this prison, which is situated on the volcanic island of Bioko. Although Black Beach’s infamous old buildings were replaced five years ago and the facility now boasts a hospital wing and pharmacy, prisoners are still shackled for up to 12 hours a day, as they shuffle past landings covered with wire to prevent suicides, in constant fear of torture and beatings. In 2008, a special reporter for the UN expressed concerns that torture was frequently used to secure convictions in Equatorial Guinea and that corporal punishment was used in prisons like Black Beach. Prisoners have reportedly died following prolonged beatings, and there are also indications that political prisoners have been held in solitary confinement for as long as four years. Black Beach is notorious for its lack of human rights and offers little protection for inmates. A prisoner can expect hardly any contact with the outside world, as access to lawyers is rare and families are not even allowed to visit their incarcerated loved ones. 6. Petak Island prison – White Lake, Russia 6-Petak-Island-prison–White-Lake-Russia

Remote Russian prison OE-256/5, commonly known as Petak, is specially designed to hold the country’s most dangerous prisoners. Like Alcatraz, Petak is isolated by water, and the White Lake area that surrounds the prison is said to be one of the most beautiful parts of Russia – a stark contrast to the grim reality of life inside. Yet as dangerous as the prisoners here are, they don’t have to fear much violence from one other, as they barely meet their fellow inmates. Prisoners in Petak are restricted to their cells, which they share with one cell mate for up to 22 hours and 30 minutes a day. They spend the remaining time in a cage, where they have been said to “pace like predatory animals.” And in such states of isolation, prisoners must contend with some of the harshest conditions of any prison in the world. “There are no lavatories, no proper washing facilities and you spend your whole life in a cell,” said 39-year-old inmate Valery in a 2004 interview with The Daily Telegraph. “When I came here I told my wife to get a divorce. She cried a little and we’ve never seen each other since.” You can’t even imagine the psychological effect Petak must have on its prisoners – caged up all day and surrounded by freezing cold water and snow. “This place destroys people. The first nine months or so they spend adapting. After three or four years their personalities begin to deteriorate,” says prison psychologist Svetlana Kiselyova. “There is no way anyone can spend 25 years in a place like this without being psychologically destroyed. The homosexuals are the ones who come off best – at least they are not starved of physical and emotional contact.” 5. San Juan de Lurigancho – Lima, Peru 5-San-Juan-de-Lurigancho–Lima-Peru

Located in Lima, Peru, San Juan de Lurigancho is often referred to as the toughest prison in South America – and that’s saying something. Built for 2,500 inmates, the facility now houses around 7,000 prisoners within its dilapidated walls. But inside, the regime seems surprisingly relaxed. Supposedly, banned cell phones are hired out and many inmates have established enterprises in Lurigancho’s “market,” selling everything from fruit and vegetables to clothes, drugs, and DVDs. Cock fighting is also common in the prison. So too are visiting prostitutes, who the inmates refer to as “nurses.” One prisoner described the women as “a social service,” saying that the place would “explode without them.” Prisoners aren’t segregated from one another – no matter what their crime – and they are allowed to freely wander the entire facility. Unsurprisingly, there have been shocking reports of violence and even murders in the prison, including one incident involving a Dutch inmate who killed his Peruvian girlfriend and buried her under his cell. And despite the seemingly lax state of control, the government has been known to react indiscriminately. In 1986, when riots broke out in Lurigancho and two other Peruvian prisons, the authorities responded with extreme violence, killing 90 Lurigancho inmates in the process. 4. Gldani Prison – Tbilisi, Georgia 4-Gldani-Prison–Tbilisi-Georgia

In September 2012, Georgia was rocked by revealing videos filmed in Gldani #8 prison showing the savage treatment of inmates by prison guards, which included rape and violent sexual assault. The country’s zero tolerance approach may have left it with one of the lowest crime rates in Europe, but Georgia also boasts Europe’s highest rate of incarceration, with an acquittal rate lower than 0.1%. As a result, many Georgian prisons are overcrowded, and prisoners face epidemics like tuberculosis. The emerging Gldani video evidence immediately focused attention on Georgia’s prison system – and its government. Such abuse highlights the cost behind Georgia’s rapid transformation from a crime-racked state to the supposedly peaceful and dynamic nation it is today. The recent revelations may well have simply confirmed what people already suspected, but they still cost Georgia’s penitentiary minister her job and led to the suspension of all prison guards – who were replaced by police in the interim. While a corruption-free police force may be one of Georgia’s greatest achievements, concerns still linger over their accountability when it comes to dealing with the inmates of Gldani. 3. Gitarama Central Prison – Gitarama, Rwanda 3-Gitarama-Central-Prison–Gitarama-Rwanda

Gitarama Central Prison has been described as hell on earth. The LA Times once said: “There is no space remaining in hell today. The doomed already fill it. They live, sleep, eat, rot and die squeezed together four men per square yard in the roofless brick box that is Gitarama Prison.” Chillingly, this echoes the poster of George Romero’s horror movie Dawn of the Dead. The prison was designed to house 400 people, but in the wake of the Rwandan genocide, the inmate population rose to nearly 7,000 by the mid 1990s. Continuing the zombie theme, prisoners have been described as “left for dead,” and they can wait in “purgatory” for as long as 16 years without ever receiving a trial date. It’s even been claimed that some inmates resorted to eating one another’s flesh out of sheer desperation. In the extremely cramped conditions, prisoners have been described as standing together “as if one organism under the sun, under the rain, choking on the smoke of cooking fires, amid dysentery and despair.” And at one stage, without any shoes to protect them in their squalid surroundings, inmates frequently suffered rotting feet caused by gangrene. 2. El Rodeo – Guatire, Venezuela 2-El-Rodeo–Guatire-Venezuela

Under the presidency of Hugo Chávez, soaring crime rates and overcrowded prisons have all but overrun Venezuela. Last year, the country’s prison population soared to 50,000 – with three fifths of inmates still awaiting sentencing. Chávez himself has described the Venezuelan prison system as “the gateway to the fifth circle of hell.” Gun- and grenade-wielding inmates are a common sight in prisons like La Planta in Caracas. However, it’s El Rodeo Prison just outside Caracas that has drawn the most attention in recent times. On June 12, 2011, a visitor day at El Rodeo erupted into one of the Venezuelan prison system’s most notorious bloodbaths. When Venezuela’s National Guard was sent in to control a shootout between rival gangs in Rodeo Unit I that had already seen 27 people killed, they found machine guns, assault rifles and grenades. The dangerous discovery led them to abandon an assault on the prison’s second unit, deciding instead to draw inmates out with tear gas. Incredibly, some Rodeo II inmates managed to last an entire month under siege, surviving on rainwater and confectionery. 1. Tadmor Military Prison – Palmyra, Syria 1-Tadmor-Military-Prison–Palmyra-Syria

Tadmor Military Prison is considered one of the most oppressive prisons in the world, with Amnesty International stating that every aspect of it was designed to dehumanize its inhabitants. “The level of brutality endured by prisoners in this prison is shocking,” added the human rights organization. But Tadmor became even more notorious in June 1980, when President Hafez al-Assad reportedly ordered soldiers to “kill every prisoner in sight” in retaliation for an attack on his life made by the Muslim Brotherhood the day before. The jail housed hundreds of supporters of the Muslin Brotherhood, and some say as many as 800 inmates were indiscriminately killed in the attack – with other estimates suggesting the number could be as high as 2,400. The clean-up following the massacre reportedly took two weeks. When Bashar al-Assad succeeded his father as President of Syria in 2001, Tadmor Prison was closed and some prisoners were granted amnesty. Optimistically, a lot of people probably thought that times were changing. However, in 2011, Tadmor was reopened to once again house opponents of the Assad regime involved with Syria’s Arab Spring uprising. Bashar’s reign has been described as no less brutal than his father’s. “The entire country really is Tadmor now,” said author and ex-Tadmor prisoner Dr. Bara Sarraj, ominously describing the situation in Syria. Bonus: Camp 22 (Hoeryong Concentration Camp) – North Hamgyong Province, North Korea Bonus- Camp-22-Hoeryong-Concentration-Camp–North-Hamgyong-Province- North-Korea

Not a lot is known about North Korea’s notorious Hoeryong Concentration Camp, commonly referred to as Camp 22. Isolated from the outside world, it’s believed to be a lifelong internment facility for political prisoners – but it’s also been referred to as a “death camp” and compared to Auschwitz. Satellite photographs show a large compound reported to hold up to 50,000 prisoners. Shockingly, it’s claimed that the camp imprisons three generations of a dissident’s family, to ensure the roots of dissent are removed completely. While facts are scarce, insight into the conditions in Camp 22 has surfaced through personal testimonies and defectors, indicating that prisoners are at the complete mercy of their captors. Reports in the early 2000s suggest that inmates are subjected to human experimentation, including exposure to chemical weapons. There have also been horrific descriptions of gas chambers and poisoned food. And brutality against children and babies has been reported as well, with claims that camp guards have been known to kill newborns in prison by stamping on their necks. One survivor, Soon Ok Lee, recounted a story in which she was instructed to hand out poisoned cabbage to a group of female prisoners. The women unsuspectingly ate the cabbage and suddenly started vomiting blood and died. According to reports, Camp 22 closed in mid-2012, following the defection of its warden to neighboring China. However, these claims cannot be verified, and some have suggested that the camp is still operational.
