The hazards of the battle field can include bombs, mines, sniper fire, grenades and machine guns, all of which are designed to inflict maximum damage t...

Ever hear someone suggest putting butter on a burn, or recommend urinating on a jellyfish sting? Crazy, right? But some first aid treatment myths do persist. Here are six first aid treatment myths that need to be demythified: Myth 1 – treat jellyfish stings with your own urine.
