Canada’s health care system

When speaking to one of the experts used by The New York Times in the study,   an  analysis conducted by The New York Times that pitted the health care services of countries against each other in a formal competition found Canada to be a major loser,   the National Post reported that Canada’s super-long wait times were the reason why the nation’s health care system did so poorly in the competition.

Long wait times have become the defining characteristic of Canadian health care.

The medical expert said only 43% of Canadians are actually seeing a medical professional on the same day they seek help, half of Canadians wait 2+ in emergency rooms, and the wait time to see a specialist is 2-3 months.

Canada’s health care system doesn’t leave us wanting so much as it leaves us waiting. The wait to see a doctor in the ER may stretch for hours, but if you need to be admitted to hospital, it can jump to days. The wait for home care services often stretches for months, and a patient needing a long-term care bed can languish in limbo for years.

Why are Canada’s health-care wait times the worst? How to Reduce Wait Times in Canadian Health Care?

Canadian patients who suffer the reality of long delays, which may lead to deteriorating and irreversible harm, and a private health care system is not any better in reality. Canadian patients   frustrated by long wait times – too often  go to the United States, other places for diagnostic and surgical procedures. and they are giving profits to other  hospitals and reducing employment to Canadian   health professionals.

The real challenge we have is not waiting times. It is more fundamental: It is better management of our hospitals, physicians, medical professionals. We should  be using our medical resources much more efficiently.  More air traffic control is needed,  not just more money. The health care system, like any industry, has a natural resistance to change, so what? Everyone deserves timely, quality care. There are proven steps we can take to shorten wait times for care, and they must be taken immediately.

Canada has more physicians, in absolute numbers and per capita, than ever before, with seemingly little impact on access.   And we under use nurse practitioners, occupational therapists and the like . For a start our physicians  should all be  required to work a minimum of  30 hours per week.

Too many Canadian operating rooms, medical treatments are closed for prolonged periods over Christmas, spring break, and in the summer as doctors like  to work 9 to 5 hours, and take holidays at the same time as many others, thus Hospitals or under utilized and wait times therefore continue to increase, to be unresolved. A medical patient with a severe illness this week called his doctor for medical help and was told the doctor was going on his vacation.

Too many Canadian surgeons considered themselves under-employed, and they cited poor access to operating rooms. All operating rooms should run on a 24/7 basis as well.

“Too many long-term care and nursing home beds are full and as a result, thousands of patients who no longer need serious medical care can’t leave hospital. Because these patients are not discharged and beds are scarce, elective surgeries are cancelled, and those waiting for admission spend days on gurneys in the ER. The congestion this causes means that ambulances sometimes can’t off-load patients. Providing care to those in hallways slows provision of care to those in the waiting room. And many of the patients in the waiting room are there because they are unable to see their doctor promptly. ”

In April 2016, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released an analysis of solutions that could be used to address wait times. The full report is available here  

The answer is simple, but profoundly frustrating. It’s because Hospitals, physicians  medical policies have not changed. Of course, there are those heartless persons who falsely choose to ignore the plight of Canadian patients.

Sadly most oral health care is exempt from provincial and territorial health-care plans (some dental services are covered by government dental programs, but working-class people lacking employer coverage are on their own).  It’s also a glaring omission that’s both illogical and a public-health concern. We know that periodontal disease affects heart health; that an untreated tooth infection can be fatal; that mouth pain can lead to drug addiction and force people to stay home from work; that dentists and dental hygienists can spot precancerous or cancerous lesions, as well as diabetes and gastroesophageal reflux disease; and that hospital emergency rooms are flooded with people with untreated dental problems.

Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors, the obscuring or embellishing of the truth of a situation with misleading or irrelevant information

.

Recreational marijuana will officially become legal in Canada on Oct. 17, 2018, Majority of Americans oppose it.  Nearly 40 percent of Canadian adults—more than 11 millions people—intended to consume pot. Consumers of legal age (set at 19 everywhere except Quebec and Alberta, where it will be 18) will also be able to purchase legal weed online, but Canadians will face strict  regulations surrounding where they can consume the drug. Canada’s bill Bill C-45, also lets provinces entirely handle the distribution and sales of marijuana — up to letting provincial governments directly manage and staff all pot stores by themselves. Provinces will be able to impose tougher rules, such as raising the minimum age.

.

Growing pot at home in Manitoba,  Quebec  could land you a ticket from police,  it will be illegal under the prevailing provincial cannabis law.Quebec’s bill applying the law, Bill 157, does not permit it.“If your neighbour denounces you, you will get a ticket,”

.

Premier-designate Doug Ford, Ontario  Progressive Conservatives  says he will focus on selling in government-run stores and the province plans a ban on recreational pot consumption in public spaces and workplaces, allowing it only in private residences, though medical marijuana use will be permitted anywhere that cigarette smoking is allowed.  Pot remains illegal in Canada until the new law goes into effect in October.

.

Canada, like the US, is part of international drug treaties that explicitly ban legalizing marijuana.  Canada will be, in effect, in violation of international law  by legalizing marijuana. Canada, signed on to three major international drug policy treaties: the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, the Convention on Psychotropic Drugs of 1971, and the United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988. Combined, the treaties require participants to limit and even prohibit the possession, use, trade, and distribution of drugs outside of medical and scientific purposes, and work together to stop international drug trafficking. Canada could face diplomatic backlash by legalizing pot.

.

Meanwhile, alcohol still is linked to 88,000 deaths each year in the US. In Canada as well.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

American border officials will start engaging in “extreme vetting” of Canadians “in relation to consumption of cannabis.” Canadian travelers will face heightened US border scrutiny and that they should expect to see more drug-sniffing dogs at high-traffic ports of entry post-legalization. .

.

Canadians Who’ve Used Pot Can Be Forever Barred From Entering the United States.  There has already been  an increasing number of Canadians being put on the inadmissibility list simply for admitting to past use. It’s illegal to cross the border with pot, even when entering into a state where the drug is now legal. Under the US federal immigration law, foreigners can be refused entry or even permanently barred from the States for attempting to enter with a controlled substance, for violating the drug laws of the US or any other country, and even for admitting to past drug use. Canadians on the no-entry list who want to visit the United States can apply for an inadmissibility waiver, but each waiver costs about $585 (US) and lasts one to five years, and so the process is a lifelong headache and a significant financial hurdle for the people who cross frequently for business, vacations, personal or family matters.

.

Americans also do feel U.S. relations have a better chance at improving in the year ahead with traditionally hostile nations such as North Korea and Russia than they do with allies such as Britain and Canada. Russia’s changing role in world affairs, a modernized armed forces along with China’s world wide growing influence, and friendship with Russia is at the root of the irrational Russophobia being peddled so passionately in Canada, UK. Western Liberal ideologues that cannot conceive of any relationship with Russia other than as a deadly or defeated foe, their condition of achieving a semblance of stability and peace in the world, is off to a false premise that will fail. No one has ever conquered Russia, and supporting the war by Ukraine is undoubtedly just a pretext.  Do they  really believe that Crimea means less to Russia than Alaska to the U.S.? The United States still does needs cooperation with Russia and China in many of the most pressing global issues of the day . And Europe and Russia go back together for centuries, back to the times of the Grand Duchy of Moscow.

Russia expressed disappointment over Canada’s decision to impose more actions over it. Additionally, Moscow vowed “revenge” against such decision saying that Canada is not improving international cooperation rather it is increasing the tensions.  Moscow recently said that it will result to retaliatory measures following Canada’s sanctions.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/canada/

The basic, central or critical point of why many like Trump, Putin, Russia and others do not.  Is the Christian religion, Matthew 12- 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  https://putin1hero.wordpress.com/2018/06/06/the-crux-of-the-matter/

.

The Canadian government is risking making pot more accessible to kids and people with drug use disorders.  It could lead to more use and misuse by making pot cheaper and more available,  easier access could also pose a risk for people who can’t control their cannabis consumption. Marijuana   does carry some risks: dependence and overuse, accidents, nondeadly overdoses that lead to mental anguish and anxiety, and, in rare cases, psychotic episodes.   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/war-on-drugs/

.

More than half (52 per cent) of Canadian employers said they’re concerned or very concerned about the implications of legalized marijuana on the workplace, according to a report by the Conference Board of Canada.Among those concerned, 57 per cent cited workplace safety, followed by impairment or intoxication at work (39 per cent); increased use of the drug in and out of the workplace (21 per cent); testing for impairment (20 per cent); managing needs related to accommodation and disclosure (15 per cent); and the cost, including covering medical marijuana and other financial affects on the organization (15 per cent).

.

Canadian military also is concerned about the  cannabis use. Marijuana use raises safety and operational concerns.The military has restrictions on use of alcohol.   Alcohol has been banned on certain Canadian overseas missions, marijuana may face the same restrictions and marijuana restrictions could be similar and even wider ranging in some functions, such as pilots.

.

The Canadian Bill C-46, which was tabled at the same time as the main pot legislation, includes new powers for police and harsher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.The new law will strengthen the impaired driving laws to help better protect Canadians from alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.The police can require a roadside breath test for any driver. The crucial change is they will no longer need reasonable suspicion the person has been drinking. Drivers who refuse this test face a criminal charge with similar penalties to an impaired driving conviction. Canadian police officers can now use roadside screening devices that test saliva for the presence of cocaine, methamphetamine and THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.Canada will now be setting a “per se” level for THC in the blood within two hours of driving, meaning police can lay an impaired driving charge based solely on the blood test results without needing to further prove impairment.The per se levels are set through regulations, not the legislation itself. The government has already proposed its levels, based on nanograms per millilitre of blood:

  • A THC level between 2 and 5 ng would be a lower-level offence with a fine of up to $1000;
  • A THC level above 5 ng would come with the same penalties as an alcohol-impaired driving conviction, including mandatory minimum penalties of a $1000 fine on a first offence, 30 days imprisonment on a second offence and 120 days imprisonment on a third offence;
  • A mixture of a THC level above 2.5 ng and a blood alcohol concentration above 50 mg per 100 mL would have the same penalties as above.
  • .

The Provinces may add additional penalties on top of this.

.

Consuming even small amounts of cannabis shortly before driving could put someone over these limits. The government has said that  it is taking a “zero-tolerance” approach.

.

The Liberals see legalizing marijuana as a lucrative opportunity, increased tax revenue too..

.
Many people will tell you marijuana is not dangerous. Consider who is telling you that. Are these the same people who are using it or are trying to sell you some pot?
.
Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars. Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2016/02/21/most-drinkers-are-liars/
.
The Cost of substance use in Canada tops $38 billion, with booze and tobacco presently on top.with a staggering toll of 67,515 deaths. The study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, was based on health, justice, lost productivity and other costs. We do need to think more carefully as we move toward legalizing recreational cannabis. Canadians need to be  aware of the ongoing and escalating human and economic costs.  More than one alcoholic drink a day could take years off your life. According also to  other researchers, roughly 20 per cent of all violent crime would not have occurred if the perpetrator was not under the influence of or seeking alcohol. Alcohol ‘directly causes’ seven forms of cancer. Governments across Canada, all put together, got roughly $10.5 billion in revenue and taxes from the sale of alcohol in 2013-2014, according to Statistics Canada, still much less than the $14.6 billion that the researchers estimate alcohol cost. Reports also do  says alcohol harm on the rise for Canadian women. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/05/31/who-is-next-2/

.

The rate of women who died from causes linked directly to alcohol has increased by 26 per cent since 2001, compared with a roughly five per cent increase over the same period for men, according to Canadian Institute for Health Information. And more Canadian women are drinking to the point where they end up in hospital, or even die from it. These numbers only include conditions like chronic alcohol use disorder, withdrawal delirium, cirrhosis, acute pancreatitis and extreme intoxication – not conditions that alcohol is a risk factor for. And although they consume less, alcohol affects women negatively more. Each dose of alcohol is more damaging in terms of things like liver damage as well as simple intoxication.  More than 25,000 woman had alcohol-related hospitalizations in 2016-2017, nearly a three per cent increase from prior last year. The figures also show that in 2015 there were more than 3,000 deaths caused by alcohol in Canada, compared to 2,066 deaths caused by motor-vehicle accidents. Girls aged 10 to 19 have already closed the gap with boys. Women are drinking more heavily than in the past sadly.

.

Drinking alcohol has become a “normalized” part of life for the majority of Canadians, yet many don’t realize the potential health risks of downing wine, beer or spirits .  Mental health and addiction-related conditions were responsible for nearly 75 percent of those alcohol-related Canadian hospital stays. If all drinkers limited themselves to a single drink a day, we probably wouldn’t need as many cardiologists, liver specialists, mental health, medical professionals, and substance abuse counselors. Heavy drinking will take a toll on the body.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/the-truth-still-even-about-alcohol/

.

Alcohol consumption can lead to liver cirrhosis, dependence, withdrawal, acute pancreatitis, as well as chronic diseases like cancer  and Canada is a heavy-drinking country. Alcohol is the second-biggest risk factor for cancer. “It is one of the top-five risk factors for premature mortality, for life expectancy, for burden of disease and hospitalizations” Making alcohol less-advertised, less affordable and less available would help to cut down on the burden of disease,  but so far, “our political system doesn’t want to do that.” Neither the Liberals. NDP, or the Conservatives who love to tax it. Here is the government hypocrisy, it is the governments who control the sale of liquor, sell it directly to citizens, and they are full aware of the hazards of consuming alcohols, Yet the same governments are building more and more liquor stores, carrying out major marketing programs, adds to encourage buying booze.  It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians still in Canada..for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant.  No taxpayers money should ever  be used to buy alcoholics at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions. Really!   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/

.

We all also tend to know how too many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life. You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocritical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. Being a cop is part of a “professional or police culture” dominated by machismo and camaraderie where police officers spend a lot of time socializing with each other,   and often it involves alcohol.  “Drinking among police officers is often quite extensive and excessive, probably more so than in other professions,”

.

The Canadian taxpayer pays heavily for the health costs incurred from alcohol  abuse. Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded . Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers. Federal   Senators charge taxpayers for art, gifts, dining out and booze

The devil spreads many, many lies,  myths about beer, wine, drugs, being good and hangover cures.  Alcohol, or ethanol, is a sedative, hypnotic drug, and the intoxicating ingredient present in wine, beer, and spirits.  Depression is more common among substance abusers:   Although it is classified as a sedative, hypnotic drug, it has a stimulant effect in small amounts. Alcohol is known to be harmful to developing brains (from fetus to adolescence). Intoxication impairs judgment and can result in inappropriate and illegal behaviors such as sexual promiscuity, disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated and acts of violence. Roughly 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults results from excessive drinking. The most serious side effect of alcohol consumption is respiratory and central nervous system depression. When the amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds a certain level, or if other depressant-type medications are taken in combination, the respiratory system significantly slows down, resulting in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can quickly progress to a comatose state and eventual death. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/alcohol-consumptiom-is-still-one-of-canadas-biggest-problem/

.

ALCOHOL IS  A  VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY.  These days you also so got to supervise daily even the politicians, even the civil and public servants  now as well, for it seems they will all run back quickly to their old tricks.. to their even bad habits of drunkenness, cheating, lying and stealing, and wrongfully next also they think they can get away with it. Clearly we as citizens have wrongfully elected too many thieves, liars, drunks, alcoholics into political offices… and they all now should still be fired, removed, recalled ASAP. Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too. The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themselves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal responsibility, personal accountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand .

No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that themodern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presenceof “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

Quebec’s pretentious FREE medical services

Quebec’s pretentious medical services

Vive le CHUM! was the rallying cry from those attending the official inauguration of the new French-language hospital, held in the presence of Premier Of Quebec Premier Of Quebec, Quebec Health Minister  Gaétan Barrette, former Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, hospital directors, among other dignitaries. .The Centre hospitalier de l’université de Montréal was a saga of almost 20 years in the makin,. The CHUM is the largest university hospital center in Quebec. The new CHUM is one of the largest hospital centers in North America. It brought together the teams and patients of Hôtel-Dieu, Hôpital Notre-Dame and Hôpital Saint-Luc under one roof.

Quebec can be proud of having such a vast and modern infrastructure, Couillard told a crowd gathered for the ceremony. It’s a great collective accomplishment that deserves recognition, he said. “It’s a marvellous building but above all a resource for patients and for Quebec society, and on a world-class scale,” Couillard said. “ Every year approximately 345,000 outpatients, 22,000 inpatients and 65,000 emergency patients are seen at the CHUM.

The opening of the CHUM super hospital is the last phase in the modernization of Montreal’s major hospitals, totalling more than $7 billion in direct and indirect costs . Among those projects were the expansion of the Jewish General and Ste-Justine hospitals, as well as the construction of the two megahospitals, the MUHC affiliated with McGill, and the CHUM with Université de Montréal.

The new hospital complex has three office-type towers with 25 floors, 772 private patient rooms, There’s also a critical care unit, 39 operating theatres, including dedicated ORs for robotic surgery, heart surgery, neurosurgery and transplants, pharmacy and blood bank.

It seems some people still want to get paid even if they are inadequate, incompetent for their job, the work they were hired for even for this  event at CHUM.

The Quebec government spent millions of dollars building now a new 772 bedroom CHUM St Luc hospital and yet their Emergency services are worse now than before even. The Emergency department accepts about 3 patients every hour, and has at least 30 patients wanting to get seen by a Doctor.

When after 7 hours I had complained to the emergency nurses on duty of my long wait and I still had not seen they doctor yet, they replied if I  thought their services were bad they should try the Quebec regional hospitals were they waiting time is up to 24 hours, then one nurse said she knows there is a problem but everyone else has to wait this long, and one nurse said if I did not like their services I should go to another Hospital.

The Security guard on duty told me that 350 hospital employees had quit their jobs at St Luc last month. I wondered why they had quit..

The  CHUM Cardiac services are still excellent but the CHUM Dermatology is not good at all.  I had received excellent emergency, medical care previously at the Montreal Hôtel-Dieu Hospital  The closing of Hôtel-Dieu will mark the end of an era. The hospital — established by Jeanne Mance, the first nurse to practice in what was then known as New France in the mid-1660s — had scored a number of medical firsts over the years, including the world’s first removal of a kidney in 1868.

The Truth still even About Alcohol

no drugs (1)

The devil spreads many, many myths about beer, wine, drugs, hangover cures and whether or not they are good for you.

What does alcohol actually do to the human body? How does it affect behaviour and what might be done to lessen, or even prevent, its most harmful effects? Nothing real good comes from any of them, believe it or not.

.

The Cost of substance use in Canada tops $38 billion, with booze and tobacco presently on top.with a staggering toll of 67,515 deaths. The study by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction and the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, was based on health, justice, lost productivity and other costs. We do need to think more carefully as we move toward legalizing recreational cannabis. Canadians need to be  aware of the ongoing and escalating human and economic costs.  More than one alcoholic drink a day could take years off your life. According also to  other researchers, roughly 20 per cent of all violent crime would not have occurred if the perpetrator was not under the influence of or seeking alcohol. Alcohol ‘directly causes’ seven forms of cancer. Governments across Canada, all put together, got roughly $10.5 billion in revenue and taxes from the sale of alcohol in 2013-2014, according to Statistics Canada, still much less than the $14.6 billion that the researchers estimate alcohol cost. Reports also do  says alcohol harm on the rise for Canadian women. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2018/05/31/who-is-next-2/

NO ALCOHOL (7)

Alcohol, or ethanol, is a sedative, hypnotic drug, and the intoxicating ingredient present in wine, beer, and spirits.   Although it is classified as a sedative, hypnotic drug, it has a stimulant effect in small amounts. Alcohol is known to be harmful to developing brains (from fetus to adolescence).Intoxication impairs judgment and can result in inappropriate and illegal behaviors such as sexual promiscuity, disorderly conduct, driving while intoxicated and acts of violence. Roughly 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults results from excessive drinking. The most serious side effect of alcohol consumption is respiratory and central nervous system depression. When the amount of alcohol in the blood exceeds a certain level, or if other depressant-type medications are taken in combination, the respiratory system significantly slows down, resulting in a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can quickly progress to a comatose state and eventual death.

The Truth even About Alcohol comes as governments around the world strive to improve public health and safety and raise awareness about the dangers of addiction. Heavy drinking is a major cause of preventable death in most countries. And alcohol is implicated in about half of fatal traffic accidents. If all drinkers limited themselves to a single drink a day, we probably wouldn’t need as many cardiologists, liver specialists, mental health, medical professionals, and substance abuse counselors.

Heavy drinking will take a toll on the body. It can cause inflammation of the liver (alcoholic hepatitis) and lead to scarring of the liver (cirrhosis), a potentially fatal disease. Heavy drinking can increase blood pressure and damage heart muscle (cardiomyopathy). It has also been linked with several cancers: The World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research indicate that there is convincing evidence linking alcohol use to cancer of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, breast, and colon and rectum in men, and probable evidence that its use contributes to liver cancer and colorectal cancer in women. The risk is multiplied for drinkers who also smoke tobacco. Alcohol can disrupt sleep. Its ability to cloud judgment is legendary. Alcohol interacts in potentially dangerous ways with a variety of medications, including acetaminophen, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, painkillers, and sedatives. It is also addictive, especially for people with a family history of alcoholism.

DRUNK DRIVING

Alcoholism has a price. Depression, homelessness, the break up of the family unit, losing one’s job, losing one’s career, losing one’s house, losing one’s mind, losing one’s life even.

Problem drinking also touches drinkers’ families, friends, and communities. Too many persons meet standard criteria for alcohol abuse or alcoholism. Alcohol plays a big role in one in three cases of violent crime. Many people die each year in automobile accidents in which alcohol is involved. Alcohol abuse is very costly to all.

For a 30-year-old man, the increased risk of alcohol-related accidents outweighs the possible heart-related benefits of moderate alcohol consumption. For a pregnant woman and her unborn child, a recovering alcoholic, a person with liver disease, and people taking one or more medications that interact with alcohol, moderate drinking offers little benefit and substantial risks.

If you don’t drink, do not start. You can get guaranteed positive  benefits with more exercise or healthier eating.

Negative effects of usage Marijuana include: Feelings of panic and fear (paranoia), Hallucinations, Trouble concentrating, altered senses (for example, seeing brighter colors), altered sense of time. changes in mood, impaired body movement, difficulty with thinking and problem-solving, impaired memory, blocks memory formation, decreased ability to perform tasks that require coordination. Decreased interest in completing tasks. Poorer physical health, more relationship problems, increase the risk of depression. Less academic and career success. Poor school performance and higher chance of dropping out The lost mental abilities didn’t fully return in those who quit marijuana next. Increased Antisocial behavior including stealing money or lying. Intense anxiety, fear, distrust, or panic are common side effects.
.
Marijuana also increases a person’s heart rate for up to three hours after use, putting users at risk for heart attack during that period. Secondhand marijuana smoke can do as much damage to the heart and blood vessels as secondhand tobacco smoke. The regular use of marijuana during adolescence is of particular concern, since use by this age group is associated with an increased likelihood of negative consequences such as Addiction (about 9% of adults and 17% of people who started smoking as teens) No medications are currently available to treat marijuana use disorder.
 .
The widespread abuse of drugs, narcotics , alcohol are also  linked to virtually to every evil and criminal activity within our society including adultery, murder.

No man should adduce   favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus  made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

.

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

.

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

,

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

/

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

,

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

,

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

,

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that the modern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

.

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presence of “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

.

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

.

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

.

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

.

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

NO DRUGS

“Legalization of marijuana will come at the expense of our children and public safety” The people who start using pot at a young age and continue using it often during adolescence and beyond are more likely than their peers to have poor health outcomes. They also achieve less occupational and educational success in young adulthood. Note you will reap what you sow, the good or bad still.

Full personal unhindered liberty is what is available to us, our liberty should be protected, and any bondage is to be avoided . We have a  great value of personal freedom and we must condemn anything that restricts or prohibits a person from reaching his or her full potential. Addiction, a dependence on a certain behavior or experience    kills our liberty.

Federal laws against the use, cultivation, and transportation of marijuana should be maintained and enforced and should not be relaxed or softened. Cultivation, processing, transportation and it’s  use should always be illegal . There is no medical benefit provided by the use of smoked marijuana and  in fact, considerable harm can be caused by such use.  There is a rightful fears of increased youth marijuana use, an uptick in traffic deaths, and a concern over the inability to detect marijuana intoxication in drivers.

Governments across Canada are hoping to make making money on legal recreational marijuana. Each employees in the legal recreational marijuana will pay provincial and federal income tax, contribute to employment insurance and their national pension plan. In income taxes alone, the growth from the legal marijuana industry is expected to be lucrative. They see Canada, as a global leader in well-regulated legal production, becoming a booming export producer as countries in the European Union and elsewhere recognize the harm-reduction opportunities of Canada’s legalized market? ” New Store fronts will pay municipal taxes. Rural production and storage facilities pay property taxes. Businesses pay taxes on profits. They also pay licence fees.”

“The speed at which the Liberal government intends to move ahead in Legalizing recreational marijuana  causes great risks in preventing adverse impacts in our communities. 

.

Legalizing recreational marijuana brings a multitude of public health concerns, ‘including addiction, youth drug use, increased motor vehicle crashes and higher numbers of minority arrests. Legalization of marijuana is bad public policy because the drug is addictive and significantly impairs bodily and mental functions. Consumption of marijuana impairs the immune system and short-term memory, elevates the risk of heart attack, and causes respiratory and brain damage.

There is strong evidence to suggest that legalizing marijuana would serve little purpose other than to worsen the drug problems. Marijuana use is associated with memory loss, cancer, immune system deficiencies, heart disease, and birth defects, among other conditions. Indeed, marijuana shares more in common with the “hard” drugs than it does with alcohol. The subduing effects of marijuana may initially make users feel less anxious and stressed. However, these effects are counteracted by the rebound effect of increased anxiety after the drug wears off. “Cannabis impairs key skills needed for driving.  ,”   “Impairment with drugs and alcohol increases the risk of a crash.”

no drugs (1)

Marijuana is definitely not the drug of love and peace it can even decrease energy and vigor after long-term use — it does not reduce aggression. In fact, smoking marijuana may increase anxiety and paranoia, thus increasing the possibility that an aggressive person will lash out. Marijuana does tend to reduce inhibitions and is associated with sexually promiscuous behavior in some circumstances, such as party and play.  For medicinal users, however, Health Canada has emphatically recommended against smoking the  plant due to the potential for respiratory issues. Rates of acute medical care and hospitalization for younger children who have ingested cannabis unintentionally are increasing. One  should not use cannabis recreationally because its many potentially harmful effects are serious. These effects are present in the entire population;

.

The fact that alcohol and tobacco are harmful does not in any way reduce the harms of marijuana smoking. There are many poisonous and hallucinogenic plants, which are unhealthy for human consumption. Several drugs as well as weed, heroin, cocaine, magic mushrooms and alcoholic beverages, come from plants. Consuming them is not healthy. Many chronic marijuana users do not claim to have spiritual awareness.

Increased Antisocial behavior including stealing money or lying. Intense anxiety, fear, distrust, or panic are common side effects. Experts and data indicate that legalization and commercialization comes at a cost to health and safety, as well as with a tremendous burden on law enforcement, public health bodies and all levels of government.

The widespread abuse of drugs, narcotics , alcohol are also  linked to virtually to every evil and criminal activity within our society including adultery, murder. 
.
 A new guideline for medical marijuana, developed by Edmonton researchers, warns family doctors that the risks may outweigh the benefits for the vast majority of patients.  The guideline suggests the benefits of medical cannabis may be overstated, and research on its medicinal properties is sorely lacking. While the researchers found limited evidence supporting the use of medical cannabinoids, the side-effects were common and consistent. Common side effects included sedation, dizziness and confusion.    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/medical-cannabis-guidelines-alberta-1.4537039?cmp=rss
 .
Once recreational marijuana is legalized, it will still continue to be illegal to smoke it in public places, including parks, workplaces and motorized vehicles.   Many have the belief that pot users are criminals, and that such criminals need arresting if Canada is to be a safer place.  Marijuana is just as dangerous as – and potentially more dangerous than – cigarettes and alcohol. The biggest issues still facing marijuana legalization are: namely, testing drivers for impairment, weed in the workplace, smoking in rental properties and the availability of edible products.   Employers have expressed concern that marijuana legalization will lead to impairment, lower productivity, poor attendance and safety issues in the workplace.  An even bigger grey area is whether employers will legally be able to test, discipline or even fire workers for using a substance that is legal. It remains unclear if landlords will be able to prohibit tenants from smoking marijuana in rental properties. Landlords are also concerned about tenants growing marijuana, which could lead to increased electricity usage and the spread of damaging mould.  Marijuana is particularly concerning for the oil and gas industry. Over the last decade, drug and alcohol use has been a “pressing safety concern” and a continuing challenge for oil and gas employers.  Substance abuse top health and safety risk in sawmills. Both workers, managers worry about dangers of alcohol and drug use
.
Our   Senators themselves have raised concerns about a potential increase in drug-impaired driving after legalization, the availability of the drug to young Canadians under the new regime, and the controls that will be in place on advertising and marketing of cannabis.   Driving under the influence of cannabis increases the risk for motor vehicle accidents .  Alarmingly, road crashes in Canada that kill automobile passengers or drivers are now more likely to involve drugs (prescription and illegal) than alcohol.  Marijuana poses great harm to the cognitive development of youth under 25.   The Conservatives have been the most vocal opponents of  the legalization.    Young people between 15 and 24 generally don’t think cannabis use has any effect on driving, and that police can’t do anything about it. Studies have found that a large proportion of drivers who die in crashes have drugs in their systems. Drugs of all kinds, not including alcohol, were found in the systems of more than a third of fatally injured drivers between the ages of 16 and 24, according to a 2010 study, for example. 16.6 per cent: Proportion of fatally injured drivers who tested positive for cannabis, according to an examination of 2000-2010 Canadian data.  All jurisdictions have opted to keep their legal dope-smoking ages in line with those for drinking alcohol.

War on drugs

 .
.
.
forbidding
Human rights: ‘only for good guys’
.
Help end addiction  war on drugs,  corruption and child abuse   crackdown on illegal drugs . The Philippines’s  President Rodrigo Duterte came to power on his promise to crack down on crime. Shabu is the Philippines slang term for the highly addictive crystal methamphetamine which is the most popular illegal drug in the country. Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte  says try drugs themselves to fully grasp the seriousness of the problem.
.
Duterte’s dirty drug war Philippines Police figures show 7,042 people have been killed during the campaign, 2,250 in anti-drugs operations. teams are coordinated to execute a list of targets: suspected drug users, dealers and criminals. “We are not that bad policemen or bad individuals. We are just a tool, we are just angels that God gave talent to, you know, to get these bad souls back to heaven and cleanse them.” pending cases that identified hardened criminals on drugs and hardened murderers, we are going to have to neutralise them  The team investigates the individuals to determine whether they are involved in drug dealing or other illegal activities, whether they are “God-fearing” or a “parasite”, and then acts accordingly. 
.
The police have been given a licence from the president to crack down on drugs and crime.  Of the 3,600-plus deaths so far, 1,375 have been killed in above-board police operations, while about 2,233 more have been put down to vigilantes  Duterte,  So far he appears to have the public on his side – a July poll by Pulse Asia Research showed his approval rating at 91%. It is not also easy to disregard the success of the anti-illegal drug trade campaign 
.
The   Philippines is showing initial success in eradicating the drug menace and in preventing the Philippines from becoming a Narco-state. President Duterte’s war against illegal drug trade has reduced criminality by 50% nationwide, and with its limited resources the government has placed the drug addicts in rehabilitation centers.
.
Japan PM offers Philippines drug war support  “As the Philippines pursues its campaign to destroy the illegal drug trade apparatus, we welcome the expression of interest of Japan to support measures to address the tremendous social cost of drug addiction,” Duterte has said he will not stop the crackdown until every last drug-related drug criminal is dead.
.
NOW the Philippines’ policy has helped restore law and order to the country; while Canada, the US has been too soft. In the U.S.,  drug users “don’t go to prison,” claiming that by failing to crack down on people with “marijuana cigarettes,” the government has allowed the illegal drug trade to flourish.
 .
Addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and drug use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors. Such self-destructive behaviors, in the case of addiction to drugs, also lead to the destruction of the family, which spells danger and doom to any nation – the family being the basic unit of society. Strong, healthy families constitute a solid foundation, like a rock, assuring a nation’s vibrant future.

 And meanwhile  in Canada

Booze, drugs and smokes: Canada is 23rd on Global Vice Index
.
Concerns about drugs prompt street security .More enforcement of drug laws.“We need zero tolerance for drug dealers, they are just preying on the most vulnerable of people,” . The police have issued a warning that a tainted batch of heroin or fentanyl may be making its way around the area.   The deaths were linked to fentanyl . Most people who overdose on fentanyl have been taking heroin or other opioids. The drug has also been found linked to cocaine and methamphetamine, but that is less common, he said.  Drug overdose deaths double in 2016 Some British Columbians support the idea to try to stem the growing number of deaths caused by overdoses of fentanyl, which is often mixed into streets drugs such as heroin and cocaine. But others oppose using public funds to buy drugs for those already suffering addictions.
.
Organized crime groups and gangs in Canada are more likely to produce and traffic drugs such as crystal methamphetamine and cocaine than they are cannabis,  organized crime groups were linked to 75 percent of all heroin-trafficking cases, 62 percent of all cocaine-trafficking cases, and 60 percent of all methamphetamine-trafficking cases; they were linked to 39 percent of all cannabis-trafficking cases, and to just 6 percent of all cannabis cultivation cases.  This contradicts common Royal Canadian Mounted Police wisdom and that the researchers’ definition of “organized crime” – three or more people who commit a serious crime to profit – is misleading.
.
There is also a  lot of marijuana around, but estimates of usage are unreliable given the legal environment surrounding marijuana use. The central question in this disturbing situation is what effect will marijuana legalization have on this serious drug problem?
.
Heroin abuse is tightly tied to prescription drug abuse. Almost half of people addicted to heroin are also addicted to painkillers. People are 40 times more likely to be addicted to heroin if they are addicted to prescription painkillers. Abuse of prescription painkillers is incredibly common . While it’s true that heroin abuse has skyrocketed in the last years, prescription drug abuse is more common. The number of overdose deaths from prescription pain medication is larger than those of heroin and cocaine combined.
.
Most addiction programs do not work.
.
Researchers with personal financial ties to pharmaceutical companies tend to publish studies casting those companies’ drugs in a positive light 76 per cent of the studies that cast the drugs in a positive light were led by investigators that had direct financial ties to the companies producing the drugs. By contrast, only 49 per cent of the negative studies had lead investigators with a monetary tie to the drug companies in question.

The Canadian taxpayer pays for the alcohol abuse

The Canadian taxpayer pays heavily for the health costs incurred from alcohol  abuse. Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers. Federal   Senators charge taxpayers for art, gifts, dining out and booze

A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer  and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence  has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion  dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for  record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers,  holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by  over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study  suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls  to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20  per cent in December.   Alcohol sales on pace to high record high: report  Canada becoming a nation of alcoholics

Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process, the Canadian government will not, cause the costs due to job dismissals and related tax losses, Medicare cost increase, car accidents, policing, domestic violence, all associated with alcoholism is extremely costly.. No taxpayer’s money should ever  be used to buy alcohol  at any federal, provincial, municipal government functions nor encourage any alcoholism too. Really!

Infections- old problems in Hospitals

 Canadian health care is high price yet low quality  .   According to a study released  by Vancouver’s Fraser Institute, despite heavy investment in health care, the quality of Canada’s care is “moderate to low” by most measures. Canada doesn’t get much bang for all those taxpayer bucks. Too many people  are too indifferent cause they falsely do think it is someone else job to deal with it.

HEALTHCARE (1)

The University of Regina is warning about an increase in gastrointestinal illnesses, often associated with food poisonings, dirty unwashed hands,  and very contagious next,  on campus. The university said Friday it is taking the matter seriously and working with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region in light of the increase in cases. Extra cleaning by housekeeping and custodial staff is underway around campus to stop the illness from spreading. People who have experienced nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches are being asked to stay away from public places for 48 hours after their symptoms have cleared. For people working where food is served, they are asked to stay home for 72 hours after recovering from symptoms.

Gastritis means inflammation of mucus lining of the stomach.
.

Gastritis is a common medical problem. Up to 10% of people who come to a hospital emergency department with abdominal pain have gastritis and yet most hospitals still tend to respond very poorly to it. Why?

.

Gastritis is a very troublesome disease and can give rise to many life threatening problems, if it is not treated in time.  There are several causes of gastritis. The most common causes of gastritis are: Aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, Potassium supplements, Iron tablets, which may explain why many elderly patients have it too. Infections with bacteria, viruses, or fungi can cause gastritis. Worldwide, the most common cause of gastritis is infection with Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Viral or fungal gastritis may develop in people who have had a prolonged illness or an impaired immune system. For some people, a drug allergy or food poisoning can cause gastritis.
.
Atrophic gastritis is a form of gastritis found particularly in the elderly, where stomach cells are destroyed, potentially leading to pernicious anemia.The main symptoms of gastritis are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. There is pain and discomfort in the region of the stomach. Other symptoms are a coated tongue, foul breath, bad taste in the mouth, increased flow of saliva, scanty urination, a general feeling of uneasiness, and mental depression. In more chronic cases, the patient complaints of heartburn and a feeling of fullness in the abdomen, especially after meals. Generally, treatment for gastritis involves antacids and other medications aimed at reducing stomach acid, relieving symptoms, and promoting the healing of the stomach lining, as acid irritates the inflamed tissue.
 .
Gastroenteritis (also known as gastro, gastric flu, tummy bug   and stomach flu, (although unrelated to influenza) is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, involving both the stomach and the small intestine (see also gastritis and enteritis) and resulting in acute diarrhea or by severe vomiting.. Infectious gastroenteritis which can often be seasonally common even in Hospitals now too may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. And it is important to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections in regard to the treatment as well.. Bacteria, and parasites  can be treated with antibiotics but Viruses do not respond to antibiotics .  Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric gastroenteritis. Norovirus gastroenteritis can cause significant morbidity and mortality among children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. Also rotavirus, norovirus, gastritis, gastroenteritis, C-DIFFICILE, ARE ALL VERY QUICKLY SPREAD BUT NOT SO EASILY CURED and what many media fail to report is that both doctors and nurses themselves are too often the biggest carriers.  

hospital-deaths

A hospital emergency room might not be the best place for the sick  and elderly. The risk of acute infection – mostly respiratory and gastrointestinal viruses – following a trip to the emergency room is three times higher among the  elderly.. Long-term care patients who spent a few hours in an emergency facility were  more likely to get sick in two to seven days after returning to their nursing  homes.

.

Now  a St Luc Hospital nurse too easily  quarantined my mother as having a contagious disease in the hospital as a merely hunch, prevention medicine, a bad nurse practicing medicine, being a doctor without a license. So when I personally  next asked the nurse what specific disease my mother  had that  she was caring, curing her for, was it a Novavirus? Next the nurse  had  replied that she did not know, and she did not read the charts,  and what was she treating my mother then for? Merely going through the pretentious motions of caring for the patient again and again?  So next  I had asked the visiting Gastritis doctor as to what proof he had that my mother was sick with a contagious disease and  what the disease was called and he next replied to me that was a good question, he needed to look into it for he did not know himself.. The doctor next lifted the quarantine.   What about getting real medical care.

.

It is also very unacceptable that the Canadian federal government is so readily to take credit for any of it’s programs but it falsely passes the buck when it has to be held accountable especially for medical inadequacies, or  the police inadequacies too.

.
AS USUAL I OFTEN ALSO DO ENCOUNTER THE CANADIAN OSTRICHES WHO SAY PUT YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND, DON’T WORRY EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT FINE. DREAM ON.. ALL IT TAKES FOR EVIL PERSONS TO CONTINUE DOING EVIL IS FOR THE GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.
 .

Which now reminds  me when was the last time actually that a medical administrator,  doctor, nurse, hospital worker was charged with criminal abuse of a sick person too?

MOST DRINKERS ARE LIARS

 

Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars.

ALCOHOL

Most Canadians drink alcohol but they really do not know health risks:  At least 3.1 million Canadians drank enough to be at risk for immediate injury and harm, with at least 4.4 million at risk for chronic health effects, such as liver cirrhosis and some cancers.  Alcohol is a known carcinogen, and the Canadian Cancer Society says there is no safe limit when it comes to cancer prevention.  Heavy drinking increases the risk for oral, pharyngeal and esophageal cancers by five times, for laryngeal cancer by 2 1/2 times, and colorectal and breast cancers by 50 per cent..

Alcohol affects and damages our cells, and  this can cause the cells in our bodies to develop into cancer..  There are seven types of cancer linked to alcohol – bowel, oesophageal (food pipe), larynx (voice box), mouth, pharynx (upper throat), breast (in women), and liver. There’s also mounting evidence that heavy drinking might be linked to pancreatic cancer.  .The risk of liver cirrhosis, brain damage and heart disease due to alcohol are all greater in women than men. Women are advised to drink less alcohol than men because they are much more vulnerable to alcohol’s harmful effects ,  if a woman has more than one drink a day, she increases her risk of car accidents and other traumatic injuries. Her risk of high blood pressure, stroke, suicide and breast cancer goes up. And drinking more than one drink a day also increases the risk that she will go on to abuse or become dependent on alcohol. And   alcohol remains at higher concentrations for longer periods of time in a woman’s body. This exposes her brain and other organs to more alcohol. So alcohol remains at higher concentrations for longer periods of time in a woman’s body. This exposes her brain and other organs to more alcohol. Binge drinking can cause alcohol poisoning, which can cause death.

The most common cancers caused by alcohol  are breast and bowel, although head and neck remain the higher risk and the biggest impact for men was bowel cancer, where one in 12 total cases (100) every year were caused by alcohol.

  Two-thirds of deaths in were men and statisticians noted that alcohol-related death rates were highest among 55- to 64-year-olds.

DRUNKS

Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. So visit the website at http://www.cancer.ca,  or call the Canadian Cancer Society Community Office.

Every year in Canada there are approximately 3,000 babies born with fetal alcohol syndrome disorder and there are approximately 330,000 Canadians living with FASD today.

Impaired driving is the leading cause of criminal death in the country.

NO DRUGS 1

 

“Alcohol harms individuals, families and communities and it’s crucial that, alongside effective local interventions and treatment for those that need it, we look more widely at what affects drinking behaviour in this country, such as marketing and pricing. “ “Unless we start taking this seriously and acknowledge the health risks that too much alcohol can cause the situation will only get worse.”
