The Jerusalem Press asked three people who have used Pap tests to comment on the taste of their test paper.
The paper tested positive for a rare and often-fatal bacterial infection called Campylobacter jejuni that is commonly found in the urinary tract of healthy adults.
The paper is an annual test used by the Health Ministry for the detection of bacteria in blood and urine.
It’s used by health authorities and doctors for the prevention of infections, especially from the common cold.
According to the ministry, the test paper tested negative for the bacteria.
Ambergris tests also have been used for the same reason.
Health officials use it to check the urine for signs of urinary tract infection.
The paper also serves as a guide for people who want to have a Pap test.
It was not immediately clear what the tests were used for.
Health ministry spokeswoman Nada Khatib said in a statement that the tests are part of a public health strategy to improve hygiene and promote the use of safer methods.
“Health Ministry’s public health plan aims to increase the prevalence of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections,” Khatid said.
But some of the tests, like those used for Pap tests, are considered unnecessary and have been banned by the health ministry.
Khatib did not respond to requests for comment on why Pap tests were banned.
Moss says the Pap test paper is the only paper tested for the disease.
In 2015, Moss was a consultant at the Israel Health Sciences Institute (IDSI), which is affiliated with the Ministry of Health.
She says the paper tested 100 percent positive for the Campylovirus.
I can tell you I don’t use it for the pap test, Ambergris said.
Moss said she does not recommend the paper for anyone, especially the elderly or those with chronic health problems.
She said it’s best used in patients with anemia or other chronic conditions.
People with chronic illness are also encouraged to have regular tests for bacteria and other diseases, she said.
