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.

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.

Gutless Politicians

NO DRUGS

“Legalization of marijuana will come at the expense of our children and public safety”

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.

PM Justin Trudeau,  liberal lawmakers,    falsely rush  to be immoral.THE LIBERAL PARTY  TRYING TO INSURE VOTES AT ANY COSTS IS IMMORAL

 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.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/this-has-been-going-on-wrongfully-for-ages-unchecked-still/

.

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.

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.

“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.”

CANADA”S MEDICARE needs SERIOUS IMPROVEMENTS

medicare-canada (1)

We can all easily know that Canada has a Medicare system that is now supposed to provide free, full medical services Canada wide to all persons irrespective of age, gender, position in life. In reality now this pretentious Medicare system firstly does not deliver it’s responsibilities Canada wide.. 

 .
Secondly no one in reality enforces the health act, not the federal government, not the provincial governments.
 .
Thirdly the Medical professionals themselves here do act as God and they are the ones solely who decide who lives and who dies, and who gets treated and who does not as well.
 .
 Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services,
 .
 In addition there’s not only still an inadequate number of family doctors available to all of the sick patients, but  even too many existing family doctors are firstly overworked, thus they are not giving proper time, attention to all of their patients even. Many patients are waiting too  long of a time  to see a doctor too. And just cause you have a family doctor it still does not mean he or she are doing a good job now even  as well.
.

Canada’s health-care system compared to other public systems world-wide is a let down and the US private system also doesn’t score very well internationally.. There are many , many reasons for a start

.

Doctors  who are putting patients in danger,  have a lack of accountability , are over-billing for work ARE ALL always still unacceptable too.

.

LAZY INCOMPETENT OVER PAID  DOCTORS ARE IN A HURRY TO KILL THEIR PATIENTS RATHER THAN SAVE THEM

A bad Liberal is equal to a bad Conservative.

Couillard_Phillipe- premier

 

When I read this..

”  With a pledge to inject $1-billion (U.S.) cash into Bombardier Inc. to get its flagship C Series jet to market, the province of Quebec has emerged as the company’s fairy godmother”

.

   QUEBEC — Years of government budget slashing, layer upon layer, has resulted in a steady decline in the quality of Quebec’s health and social service system ” 

.

”    Proposed Quebec welfare rules carry unfair penalties, advocates warn.  A Quebec government plan to introduce new welfare rules to get people back into the workforce has anti-poverty advocates warning the measures could leave many even more destitute. The recently tabled bill aims to get first-time welfare recipients into a job program quickly, offering an extra few hundred dollars every month if they’re employed for a year. But those who don’t participate would see their benefits cut in half to $308 per month.       ”  http://montrealgazette.com/news/quebec/proposed-quebec-welfare-rules-carry-unfair-penalties-advocates-warn

.

I thought  all this was a conservative platform rather..  what Liars the Liberals have become, they were not elected for these  cuts, gifts.

.

The governments lie when they say they care about the citizens, Liberals or Conservatives too, they support the establishment rather, the rich to get richer.. as that is their own goals, desires too

.

a Bad liberal is the same as a Bad conservative

.

Now why is it the Quebec government does not go after the many, many tax evaders, then it would have money for social welfare… yes the  tax evaders such as Renovators, Car Mechanics, Property managers, truck drivers,, new immigrants,  etc,

 

And Don’t despise the poor people otherwise you will become poor like Alberta has.. 

.

I REMEMBER WHEN MANY ARROGANT ALBERTANS, POLITICIANS  USED TO FALSELY BOAST ON THE NET ABOUT THEIR PROSPERITY.. and I would reply they need to be really now more considerate of the poor people and the rest of Canada for they too will ONE DAY  be on social aid, and EVEN asking other Canadians to help them.. it is funny how reality  comes to pass with time even in Alberta.

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2015/05/08/what-happened-in-alberta-is-no-surprise-to-the-honest-decent-folks-socialists-elected-in-canadas-oil-patch/

.

IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE BAD GUYS DO NOT LIKE THE TABLE TURNED AGAINST THEM.. TO BAD FOR THEM.. I LIVED IN ALBERTA FOR 15 YEARS AND I SAW THAT THEY THEY HAD FALSELY REFUSED TO SEE THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL.. TOO OFTEN TOO.

.

(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

.

Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit;  (Jer 9:6 KJV)  

.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7

.

The Governments, Politicians supposedly caring  about own good welfare firstly, is the best joke of the year too, in reality rather they are working really hard everyday too looking first after themselves , and undeniably clearly living high on the hog at our expense, and that even includes too many of our bad civil and public servants too now.. WHERE ARE THE POLICE HERE TOO WHEN YOU NEED THEM??? And accountability, openness, transparency are more Stephen Harper’s conservative government lies that need to be prosecuted as well.. Under the new  federal Conservatives the civil an public servants are not being managed any better and they still too often waste, abuse our tax dollars and this is unacceptable. Mostly Pretentious and  useless RCMP,  Consumer Protection, Health Canada, and Revenue Canada need to really shape up still now too. 

.

And what about still dealing with our elected political members, civil and public servants who too often have abused the tax payers generosity now as well, they also seem still to get away with it..

.

THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO  IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO.

.

Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

.

”   Among the claims made by women in the Radio Canada report, one of the most common was that RACIAL  MONTREAL  cops would take women they considered troublemakers into their squad cars during the winter, drop them off way outside of town and force them to walk home in the cold. Advocates who’ve been calling for an inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women say the contentious relationship between law enforcement and indigenous people should also be examined. ”

.

Citizens are still calling for change in   local speed traps. I think over the years they have just tacked on additional fines, or put up red light cameras, or doing one thing or another to try and generate revenue for their city.  Cities falsely are using traffic citations to fund city government.  Some cities it’s upwards of 8% to 10% of their revenue instead of .5 percent  is generated by fines and fees.    Many cities   have used fines and fees to fund a large portion of their budget, police budgets included . Too many Police Department  even have an illegal quota system that requires  officers to write three traffic tickets per day and make at least one arrest every two days. A  quota encourages officers to ticket people regardless of whether motorists’  behaviour is actually endangering the public or could be corrected with a warning. Traffic fines affect the poor and are ineffective against those they are to be really targeting, the rich. Most   cops saw their fellow residents less as citizens to protect than as “potential offenders and sources of revenue.”  Causing  “breakdown of trust” between people, police, governments and courts.  Missouri cities can no longer treat their citizens like ATMs,  as the state’s governor signed a bill capping how much money local governments can collect from traffic tickets and fines.” For people who have lived in these communities that fear they are going to be pulled over and harassed because that city needs money, that’s going to change,”

The no good Liberal government in Quebec and Medicare user fees

1cansda bad medicare

THE GOVERNMENTS CAN ALWAYS FIND MONEY FOR WHAT THEY WANT BUT NOT FOR THE CITIZENS

The   provincial auditor’s report   had  said that the government has lost control of physician salaries. Quebec overpaid specialists nearly $400-million since 2010, the auditor found. Critics pointed out that Mr. Couillard and Health Minister Gaétan Barrette – both former specialists – are doing nothing to recover the overpayments while they cut daycare, dental services for poor children and a host of other services. “It’s austerity everywhere in Quebec except for the physician colleagues of the Premier and the Minister of Health,” Parti Québécois Leader Pierre Karl Péladeau said.

The introduction of user fees is a serious threat to universal care, the critics  have said, including the Canadian Medical AssociationQuebec Medical Association, Canadian Doctors for Medicare, and Médecins québécois pour le régime publique (MQRP as they had asked the Quebec Government to hold off on regulating fees in October.

Charging patients at doctors offices and clinics for medically necessary care is not acceptable. It strikes at the heart of the principle that access to health care should be based on need rather than ability to pay

Some  physicians  have already  outlined two choices to Quebec patients,  pay $250 up front for a quick test on the spot at the clinic or wait three months for a hospital appointment.

The  hidden charges billed for care, medication and services included — $600 for eye drops, $30 for filling out a form, $25 for a five-minute phone consultation, or renewing a prescription, and $135 for an ultrasound at a clinic that served as an overflow for a hospital. and it confirms extra or shady billing threatens access to medical services and care as  billing patients directly is not a marginal practice. It’s widespread among family physicians and specialists.

Many are feeling indignant about the injustice of having to pay amounts they considered exorbitant for medical care. Some said they could not afford to pay — they needed the money for groceries or rent.

Adopted last week, the Quebec Health Minister Gaétan Barrette’s Bill 20 included a set of amendments to legalize fees charged to patients in clinics for insured services, commonly called “accessory fees.” The list of regulated ancillary fees will come later, after the government hires an independent accounting firm to determine real costs.. The public was not consulted  on  Bill 20

Citizens are  calling on Quebec government  to suspend the extra fees and on the new federal Health Minister Jane Philpott “to act immediately to force Quebec to respect the Canada Health Act,” 

.
1MEDICARE CANADA

Canada’s ridiculous Health care system is now also very poorly managed, in fact it is mismanaged for decades too, just like all of the federal and provincial   civil public servants, RCMP, cops, now are as well and all now undeniably too..  Putting more of your tax dollars to cover the poor , pretentious, inadequate work of our politicians, civil and public savants is a continual waste, an attempt to fill a bucket full of large draining holes.

MEDICARE- DO YOU CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE?

MEDICARE- DO YOU CARE OR DO THEY NOW CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE?

CANADA MEDICARE (2)

Quebec promises of more palliative care is that they will kill OR murder more people in hopspitals. This government will now invest at least $10 million a year over the next five years to help people die in dignity. Quebec has a right to-die legislation, The law, which was adopted in June 2014, offers people who are terminally ill and suffering from unbearable physical or psychological pain, etc.,  the possibility of requesting the  doctor’s help to die or not to live.. Not having access to proper Medical c are would force falsely some people to end their lives prematurely especially as this government is reluctant to pay for the expensive pain killers, medical treatments.

 I WAS SUPRISED WHEN 2  SEPARATE DOCTORS  IN AN EMERGENCY WARD ASKED ME IF I MINDED IF THEY DID NOT TRY TO SAVE ME?

I PREFER TO LIVE.

LAZY INCOMPTENT OVER PAID  DOCTORS ARE IN A HURRY TO KILL THEIR PATIENTS RATHER THAN SAVE THEM

I spent this year 5 days in the Montreal Notre Dame hospital and they were unable to help me, but  after being discharged I went to the local pharmacy , pharmacist who recommend a product that helped, dealt with my medical problem.. A Year later the services drasticly improved

Too many Doctors are mainly selfish, self centered, want to get rich fast

Canada does not have the best Medicare, not even close.. why?

Catching the liars in the act in Quebec’s Medicare, Hospitals

The reality about Canada’s Medicare “The Untouchables”.

Canada’s medicare

THE GREAT DEBATE. PRIVATE OR SOCIALIZED MEDICARE.

Canada Pretentious Medicare

New medical studies confirm what I for years have written here..

The Unseen elephant in the room.. what to do with the elderly?
