Healthy eating and healthy living

    

Too many persons still do falsely still do think they can eat whatever they want, or do what they want personally and next they will not reap any negative Karma, they will not reap what they had sowed. Dream on! Guess why so many people are next sick now too..

AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION HERE TOO IS BETTER OVER  A POUND OF CURE!

In Canada hundreds of thousands of persons do annually die from heart diseases, cancer, diabetes still and why Is that? is it from smoking cigarettes and their  drinking alcohol too much? or what else?

The reality is that most people are still busy even doing their own thing, the professionals, doctors and nurses included now, they themselves do know very little about healthy food, healthy eating, or what basically causes cancer, heart diseases, diabetes. etc…

And too many persons still ignorant do mainly and wrongfully attribute diabetes solely to sugar consumption neglecting many other essential factors as well. The most common nutrition myth is probably that sugar causes diabetes. The main risk factors for Type 2 diabetes are not eating regularly, not eating smaller portions of food more often, or a diet high in calories, being overweight, and an inactive lifestyle. If you have diabetes, you still do need to watch your sugar and carbohydrate intake, with the help of your Registered Dietitian, to properly manage your blood sugar level. Fortunately, the complications of diabetes can be prevented, delayed, or slowed by controlling blood glucose levels to as close to the normal range as possible and this still does involves eating more regularly, and eating more proper foods as well.For all persons even a diabetic skipping meals is a bad disruption. It is important to not skip meals because it disrupts the blood sugar regulation. Some oral diabetes medications (like Metformin a first-line drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes ) should always also be taken with meals. Since most oral diabetes medications don’t work immediately (like for example a pain medication), but rather they have a cumulative effect to be therapeutic. It has been shown that keeping blood sugars as near to normal as possible helps reduce the long-term complications of diabetes. As a diabetic, you should not skip meals nut should take the oral diabetes medication everyday at approximately the same time. By skipping one’s medications as well, one is not getting the full benefit of them. Not skipping meals allows the body to achieve a steady blood sugar level in the body. For example, if a diabetic skips a meal their blood sugar could drop, which is called hypoglycemia which can lead to more serious medical aspects too..

In reality Canada’s major personal sicknesses, major causes of personal deaths are still mainly related to even the  basics of one’s bad food intake, or to one’s  lack of sleep, or a lack of exercise and even due to taking  bad drugs and one’s alcohol consumption plus also one’s personal failure to reduce or to deal properly with ones inadequate negative personal stresses that we all do too often encounter in real life.

10 Diet & Nutrition Myths Debunked
1 The most common nutrition myth is probably that sugar that mainly causes diabetes, first look elsewhere rather..
2 Myth- All Fats are bad It’s a long-held nutrition myth that all fats are bad. But the fact is, we all need fat.
3 Myth- Brown Sugar is better than White Sugar. The brown sugar sold at grocery stores is actually white granulated sugar with added molasses.
4 Myth- Brown Eggs are more nutritious than White Eggs Contrary to a widely believed nutrition myth, eggshell color has nothing to do with the quality, flavor, nutritive value, cooking characteristics, or shell thickness of an egg
5 Myth- Avoid seafood to lower blood cholesterol In fact, the dietary cholesterol found in seafood and other meats has little effect on blood cholesterol in most people.
6 Myth- Avoid carbohydrate to lose weight or that the carbohydrates promote insulin production
7 Myth- Avoid nuts as they are fattening, but if you can restrain yourself from overeating them, nuts can be a part of a healthy diet.
8 Myth- Eating for 2 is necessary during pregnancy
9 Myth- Skipping meals can help lose weight. The People who think skipping meals means weight loss do not understand how our bodies work.
A better approach is to eat smaller frequent healthy meals and snacks to keep your blood sugar balanced.
10 Myth- Red meat is bad for health. It is true that some studies have linked red meat with increased risk of heart disease, partly due to the saturated fat content. In fact, even chicken can contain as much saturated fat as lean cuts of beef or pork. Instead of excluding red meats, choose leaner cuts of beef and pork. For beef, choose eye of round, top round roast, top sirloin and flank; for pork, choose tenderloin and loin chops.

Myth 11 Brown sugar is healthier over white sugar.. basicaly they are the same.

Here is another sad truth, if you do not want to listen to the common sense, established health facts you can always find a liar who  will support your views but nevertheless you will reap what you sow in your health now still too

In a new report, a large group of American doctors urge kids and  teens to avoid energy drinks and only consume sports drinks in limited  amount. Florida pediatricians described cases of seizures, delusions, heart problems and kidney or liver damage in people who had drunk one or more  non-alcoholic energy drinks — including brands like Red Bull, Spike Shooter and Redline.

While it is true that all people do need to be energetic and not hyperactive, melancholy rather as well but first when we have learned to help ourselves we next can also help others.

Here are some more  important truths related to being healthy

1 Good food and good eating habits will even let you sleep better, and also help you you get a proper night sleep. Too many persons now do suffer as a result of their lack of sleep which affects negatively their health  and bery serioulsy

2 In the real world and in the ideal world your own mother, and not someone else firstly should have taught you how too even eat the proper food, plus as to what food is good and appropriate for you to eat, and even how to properly prepare it. Unfortunately as it is too often the case if your mother is not a good dietician or a great cook and/or she is also very ignorant on the subject so next will the rest of the family unacceptably be as well.

Now also our general education system itself still often fails to deal with the topic of staying healthy, what is good food, on good eating habits as well adequately. Kind of explains why so many doctors, nurses, professionals themselves do not eat the healthy, or proper food.

And we are next left to governments and big corporations, the big money hungry corporations who too often have hidden agendas and as a result they do present half or distorted truth, health facts and do not tell is all that we personally do need to know.

Ezek 34:4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. 5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. 6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

3 Too many persons also do fail to understand, fail to realize the importance of a proper, adequately working food digestion system now as well. They firstly do fail to realize the importance of basic water consumptions in helping all of our food intake to digest and they do not drink enough water, or wrongfully consume caffeine, alcohol that causes more dehydration even, as well which leads to both digestion and heart, cancer problems often too. Knowing how your digestive system is supposed to work will help you.

Even before you eat, when you smell a tasty food, see it, or think about it, digestion begins. Saliva (say: suh-lye-vuh), or spit, begins to form in your mouth. Your digestive system started working even before you took the first bite of your food. And the digestive system will be busy at work on your chewed-up lfood  for the next few hours — or sometimes days, depending upon what you’ve eaten. This process, called digestion, allows your body to get the nutrients and energy it needs from the food you eat. So let’s find out what’s happening to that pizza, orange, and milk. When you do eat, the saliva breaks down the chemicals in the food a bit, which helps make the food mushy and easy to swallow.  http://kidshealth.org/kid/htbw/digestive_system.html

Now also next we have to understand what products do cause dehydration, such as coffee, alcohol, the products that do affect the stomach juices and one’s ability to properly digest foods and rather which can have a very negative effect on our heart, health.

4 Now add to this the fact that too many people fail to understand what is that it leads to one having diabetes next as well.. and the issue is not just your sugar consumptions. I am shocked as to how ignorant people are when it comes to the aspect of sugar consumption and how overboard they do also go..

Most People also do still fail to see  also still that salt is bad for you since it retains water in the blood  and increases one’s heart stress as a direct result.

5 Next we relatedly too often have the religious inclined discussions, and a lack of understanding on the danger or benefit of fat, meat, good and bad cholesterol.. or vegetarians versus non vegetarians. Here is the reality skinny persons too often die as much as fat people due to the major sicknesses too.. You need fats to survive and be healthy, but you need to choose the right ones.

There are also both good and bad fats and good and bad sugars. Also Sugar alone does not lead to diabetes, but rather one’s poor eating habits, eating meals irregularly or skipping them ..

Fat vs. Sugar – Which Is Worse?

The website for the McKinley Health Center at the University of Illinois states that fat is crucial for “normal growth and development, energy, absorbing certain vitamins, and maintaining cell membranes.” The United States Department of Agriculture now recommends that fat make up 20 percent to 35 percent of daily calorie intake, and some nutritionists encourage an even higher percentage of fat consumption. Heather Fleming, a nutrition consultant for Conscious Nutrition, recommends two servings of healthy fat per meal, for a total of six servings per day. Ms. Fleming says that healthy fats are essential and are like “oil for the body…Our cells are made of phospholipids, and that’s where the healthy fats…go to reenergize the cells.” http://www.docshop.com/2008/08/12/fat-vs-sugar-which-is-worse

Still we all do need to deal personally with all these aspects and to get, have a proper understanding here now still as well and not just absurdly say Any fat or Sugar Is Ruining Your Health or say that one can eat whatever one wants.

also do see my health blog for more info.. http://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/ or https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/more-competent-doctors-are-needed-and-not-more-useless-nurses-or-more-beds/

.. get a healthy life and not a sick one.

Three of the clearly sad aspects of Medicare, medical care in Canada too often are that
1: Too many of the sick patients have spend a lifetime getting sick and they seem next to want an immediate instant, permanent cure, even without any effort, work , inconvenience,pain or fuss on their own parts. Here they do too often unrealistically expect rather the pretentious ambulance doctor to even come to their home and find, and next to deliver an instant medical cure for their major ailment.
2: Also they do all mostly fail to realize that the family doctor he or she cannot basically help them when they develop a major sickness, in the 20 minutes allotted to him or her every 3 months for he or she firstly basically cannot realistically help the patient, they thus really cannot discover their major sickness for he or she does not have the time, resources to do so. Hiring more nurses receptionists helps nothing here
too.
3: Only the overcrowded already major hospitals have the staff, resources, equipment to help people who have a serious sickness and they tend to have their own schedules, priorities. They work weekdays 9-4 only.

And Fourthly even the generally over priced price gouging, often not fully medically competent pharmacist, pharmacies, and the dermatologist included are basically no help in what they recommend, prescribe if you have a major illness to.. for example a major unknown foot disease..

Now with Canada rapidly aging seniors population medical care will certainly only get worse based on how pretentions and our still mostly useless our health ministers, politicians too tend to ne in all this too.
Canada is already known for having bad pretentious civil and public servants that do not care about others good health too. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/more-competent-doctors-are-needed-and-not-more-useless-nurses-or-more-beds/  

 

PS: Doctors are not Gods.  Even the good Doctors are not Gods, they do not  know it all, some are rather still stupid when it comes to effectively  helping  a sick person.The professional quality of a medical doctors lies not just in his university and clinical training but it also lies in the degree of his or her  actual  field experience and   being kept updated with the medical advancements. Kinda of explains while some doctors have not been initially able to  help me with my severe medical problems and thus they have too often wrongfully forced me to seek the expertise of many other doctors next too. Doctors are not Gods, some rather are still  very bad sinners who do for billing purposes now  lie and pretend that they are good doctors still too. Self regulation of the bad doctors too often is still mere masturbations. We need an enforced  federal Bill that will tighten the  regulation of doctors and clarify the obligations of the medical and law-enforcement communities to report, communicate, act upon all of the suspected physician misconduct and patient neglect,  abuse.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/more-competent-doctors-are-needed-and-not-more-useless-nurses-or-more-beds/

Canadian Mortality rate – Death -Health – Heart disease – Cancer

 

 
It seems now also very funny to me that valid recent statistic on the number of people dying in Canada annually with cancer, heart attack, alcoholism, drug abuse, hospital acquired infections, etc are not available readily indicating that the governments don’t really care about the citizens good welfare.
 
Too many news reporters now STILL do fail to say that   half of those diagnosed with cancer now will eventually die of the disease or one of its complications, most journalists do still  like to spin the positive and prefer the  stories that ignore the hard reality of the various diseases. They are not doing anyone a service by their lies..
  
Sadly still too many lost sheep, distorters, positive spin doctors too now have even now tried to point out that  the Bible as being itself all good news, when in fact it also now  has many, many negative references as any actual Bible readers do easily  find out.
 
One of the negative facts in the Bible is that it states in the last days many of men’s hearts will fail, and sickness will plague the earth even. “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:26 KJV) 
 
Most of the spin doctors, false scribes are not too eager now to rock the politically correct boat of the supposedly established ”truths”.
 
“There’s been a tremendous growth in options available to physicians and over those last 10 years, they have  been successful in making sure the treatments that are beneficial are being used by more people,” But still not enough is being done here too. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/why-heart-attacks-often-kill-still/  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/cure-for-stress-high-blood-pressure-heart-attack/
 
Don’t get the false impression that all doctors now in Canada are motivated enough by money to help you with your  sickness and your pain. My medical services undeniably exponentially improved from my own doctor next when I had informed him I was keeping the health ministry abreast in writing next of the actual health services I was getting.
 
The health of Saskatchewan residents doesn’t measure up well against the rest of the country, says the most recent report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information. “Although, surprising some related information can be found here it is still rare.
 
Many many people in Canada, young and old  too do live daily in unresolved fears, and also do now  lack adequate sleep both issues that severely affects their personal health now too.
 
Not to downplay  the impact of specific health strategies like smoking bans and food labeling initiatives,  such polices likely do now play  a really big role in the Heart and cancer disease’s decline still now one’s unresolved negative personal stress, one’s fear of war and many other facts do affect one’ heart health clearly too. 
 
“I think we all should reinforce all  patients that just as they should be taking the medications and undergoing the procedures that are evidence-based and recommended by their physician, that next they should not fall into this false sense of security,”   “Exercising, watching their diet to ensure diabetes doesn’t come on and (watching) their cholesterol, all of those are vitally important also as important as (medical or drug) treatments.”
 
“Too many major studies of the cause of death seem to have mainly a pharmaceutical approach agenda, solution still too. With their truckloads of money, made from the top selling synthetic chemical pharmaceutical next of course.  Of note, they have correctly excluded Coumadin/Warfarin (rat poison) from their apparent analysis, since there is no credible evidence that these chemical “drugs” extend human life. This death -health study nevertheless  is just an attempt still to deceive readers into believing satins extend life, which is totally false, but very profitable.  According to a UK study statin drugs may add a total of two days to a person’s life at a cost to the Healthcare System that runs in the billions. Their only effect may be anti inflammatory, which an Aspirin will do too. When inflammation in your system goes down so does your LDL level. Basically Cholesterol does not cause heart problems, never has, never will. Basically it seems statin drugs  are not only useless but dangerous. The steady stream of pharmaceutical recalls often definitely shows, means that their claim of science is pure deception.  Their basic Obscene profit motivation has nothing good to do with really helping human health. Too many of them it seems that they are still  fraudsters  downplaying falsely eating healthy foods,  or  blood pressure control and the two most likely major heart death factors; diet and exercise. “
 
“As per diabetes type 2  nobody should have that disease and it is, in most cases when not too advanced completely curable by cutting out all refined carbs and changing back to a healthy diet of veggies and meat and fat. Yes, animal fat. Did you know that lard is for the greater part mono unsaturated fat (oleic acid, same as olive oil). “
 
I too do have to say I too still get tired of the news and medical crap I do read, the distortions, especially when it comes to the leading causes of deaths in Canada.. cancer and heart attacks are the leading causes of death supposedly.. somehow the reasons often now given for one dying seem to exclude the basics.. such as many people who get a second free disease  while in a hospital, and besides as to how many people get sick or killed due  to alcohol, unresolved negative personal stress, eating cheap, bad foods. Not just deaths due to a lack of exercise or being overweight.
 
All the health studies seem to have a false hidden agenda, sponsored by someone and are not fully honest still it seem. I have for my liking now also met  too many bad doctors and nurses in my life in reality too  Even Doctors who had abused their research grants now too.
 
The numbers of new Cancer, Heart cases and deaths are continuing to rise in many parts of Canada even. When it comes to Cancer only about 25 percent  of the deaths now are unavoidable and the balance could have been likley prevented with better education, preventative measure, applicable now to heart deaths as well, all which clearly means our governments, Health Ministers they  are not still doing enough to look after the good welfare of all Canadians these days too. Help for sick, and the dying  is insufficient still. The statistics also suggest 40% of men and 45% of Canadian women will develop cancer during their lifetime. This year, an estimated 173,800 Canadians will be diagnosed with some form of cancer, up by 2,800 over 2009; 76,200 are predicted to die from the disease, an increase of 900 compared to last year. Now prostate cancer,  is the second largest cancer killer of men, just behind lung cancer. The five-year for survival rate for all cancers combined is only 59 per cent.  An estimated 173,800 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Canada in 2010, according to the latest projections. (This does not include 75,500 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer.)   The leading cancer killer, by far, remains lung cancer, which will take an estimated 20,600 lives this year. Next is colorectal cancer (9,100 deaths), then breast cancer (5,400) and prostate cancer (4,300). 
 
“In Canada cancer is the country’s biggest killer, and one in nine women in Canada will get breast cancer.  Even Breast cancer sufferers desperately need more generous employment insurance and other benefits as they grapple with the steep economic costs of their illness, a new Canadian study concludes\nx   it’s not just the disease that can cause cause stress for women. The financial burden is also significant In an online survey of 446 cancer survivors, 44% reported using their own savings to cover medical expenses and lost income. More than one-quarter were forced into debt. As well, about one in six of those who had been employed full-time when diagnosed lost their jobs. About one-fifth were forced to go back to work before they felt ready due to financial pressure. “Many respondents were unaware of the high cost of the disease until they began to get treatment. Like many Canadians, they had assumed that public health care would cover most of their costs,” the study says. “The economic reality came as a shock.” Much of the financial burden can be attributed to the fact Employment Insurance covers only 15 weeks of the 38-week treatment. Two-thirds of respondents were off work for at least 16 weeks. Patients who had chemotherapy had the greatest drop in family income, took more time off work and were more likely to quit their jobs. While provincial governments pay for many drugs, the patient commonly pays for some others, special foods as well as medical supplies and prosthetics – such as wigs or special bras – out-of-pocket. Travel costs to obtain treatment – a particular problem for those outside cities – aren’t covered. Patients who exercise every day and eat a healthy diet while getting treated for breast cancer and prostate cancer can improve their entire health. The Breast Cancer Network’s survey estimated the average household income dropped $12,000 following diagnosis of breast cancer. In fact, the study concluded breast cancer survivors “often found the financial burden to be as stressful as the disease and that the financial impact was sometimes longer lasting than the disease itself.” The study focused solely on breast cancer, the most common cancer in women; one in nine women will get it in their lifetime. Each year, among both men and women, about 22,900 new  breast cancer  cases are diagnosed. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, but men are not immune, either. In 2009, 22700 Canadian women and 180 Canadian men were diagnosed with this form of the disease, with 5400 women and 50 men dying of it. But the network stressed that financial problems and difficulties re-entering the labour force are significant issues among sufferers of all cancers. “We would argue that many of the experiences described in this report are likely shared by the more than 700,000 Canadians living with all types of cancer. http://www.cbcn.ca/documents/Labour_Force_Re-Entry_Report_ENG_CBCN_2010.pdf
 
 Prenatal exposure to BPA, DES may boost breast cancer risk Fetuses exposed to chemicals like Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Diethylstilbestrol (DES) in the womb may have a higher risk of developing breast cancer in their adulthood, BPA is a weak estrogen and DES is a strong estrogen, yet our study shows both have a profound effect on gene expression in the mammary gland — breast — throughout life,” A review article published online May 25 in Nature Reviews Endocrinology finds that endocrine-disrupting chemicals like bisphenol A found in plastic pose cancer risk in adults. Bisphenol A is commonly present in household products including plastic bottles, reusable food containers, and food cans. “All estrogens, even ‘weak’ ones can alter the development of the breast and ultimately place adult women who were exposed to them prenatally at risk of breast cancer.” DES was also used as a growth hormone in the beef and poultry industry in the 60s. It was phased out in the late 1970s after the chemical was found to cause cancer. 

 

Final medical  care throughout the nation , the attention paid to it, and the help provided for dying at home is not up to the mark and is unacceptably deficient Canada wide too.  “A variety of benefits and services are available when a new life enters the world. We should be providing just as much support when someone is dying,”
 
Despite years of many persons complaints now, end-of-life care remains an inadequate, unacceptable  patchwork of help too often and where other related services do exist, the patients too often now are referred to palliative care much too late. . When I do read many news media accounts of the events surrounding all Canadians it seems like the news written applies to another planet, and not the one we are living on herein Canada. The news spins and desertions are grossly immoral as well. For example take the recent media spins on Cancer and on palliative care of dying patients as well  One person’s death that could be prevented and one less person  dying in pain and suffering is never to be considered as unimportant even in the overall picture. Even one person needlessly suffering an agonizing death in pains because they were not given adequate medication, pain killer is also now totally unacceptable.  There’s some real big, major gaps and inconsistencies, governmental and medical cruelty even on how one’s end-of-life care is delivered. Not only is the available   number of hospice beds and quantity of home care   insufficient, even  in the hospitals, but the problem will only get worse as more seniors, almost double the number, next  will retire within the next decade .
 
And even the professional counseling ,depression services,  end-of-life discussions are significantly missing among the medical  staff and the  families next as well. Social Services in Canada tends to be of any at at a crude, bare simple basic, pre historic, dinosaur age level.  Most families often don’t use them because they don’t know what supports are available or how to access them. Doctors and the nurses they too often tell you tell you nothing of what you  do need to know still. Too many persons will die first while waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home.  Too many sick persons die waiting for either a quality end-of-life care or an adequate place in a medically equipped convalescent old age home. Imagine this cruelty, absurdity now as well an overnight palliative care was being stopped because it  exceeded the two-week limit in place.  Now it’s a disgrace that anyone ox subjected to  this during their final days. Many many persons now would in Canada still benefit from a decent end-of-life care but often still don’t get it, in our rather still uncivilized society. Inadequate Services Offered for  “End-of-life”, No Improvement Even  Years  After.  The  special Senate committee had reported uneven access to palliative care in 1995 and a 2005 follow up found little progress now in Canada showing us all how little our politicians do really care about others death, pain, suffering in reality. Mostly lying Health Ministers  say they now are  doing everything they can to help ensure excellence in cancer care for all.. No one should be foolish enough to believe this at any time too. In reality the way the end-of-life care, seniors cares are  now being  delivered clearly shows that there is a need of real federal and provincial management and adequate regulations. 
“It is absolutely OFFENSIVE that the government is still feeding off cigarette tax dollars while making marijuana illegal.  My mother is dying slowly from cancer because of cigarette smoking. All my childhood friends have someone in the family who has died in a similar horrible fashion. When will the Canadian government do what is morally right and make cigarettes illegal? The government makes roughly 6-7 billion dollars in taxing tobacco. Not to mention sales and service taxes.   That money supposedly  goes towards our healthcare as well.”
 
 “What is the correlation between the incidence of high blood pressure and high personal indebtedness in this country?” ”  Did the Canadian causes of death study  take into account how many people had moved to Alberta but died of heart attacks once they saw the cost of LIVING housing and health care in reality once they arrived there?”
 
Notice the spin doctors do not deal truthfully or specially with how many people who have been diagnosed with serious heart problems got treated within 6 months to 2 years at the most and why was that? Reality heart treatment is done at major hospitals only who do not get paid on a per patient basis, but only get an annual budget to work with, a budget which varies with each city,  province now too, so they firstly do not treat all the serious heart patients.

Heart attack rates vary by province, researchers find  Globe and Mail -When it comes to heart attacks, where you live and how much you earn seem to matter more than how you live.

Those with low incomes have high heart attack risk Toronto Sun The report, Health indicators 2010, says 67,000 Canadians were hospitalized for a heart attack in 2008-09 Breaking down the population into five income levels, the study found that Canadians living in the least affluent neighborhoods were 37% more likely to suffer a heart attack than those in more affluent areas. Heart attack patients from richer neighborhoods were 7% more likely to get a revascularization procedure, such as angioplasty or bypass surgery, than those from lower-income areas. “While a person’s socio-economic status affects the risk of having a heart attack, it appears that where you live in Canada makes a bigger difference,” Eugene Wen, manager of health indicators at CIHI, said. “Regions with higher heart attack rates also tend to have higher rates of hypertension, diabetes, smoking and other cardiac risk factors.”

In B.C., the heart-attack rate was 169 for every 100,000 people, said a report, which used data from 2008 and 2009. In Newfoundland and Labrador, it was 347 for every 100,000 people. Heart attack rates highest in Newfoundland and Labrador: The same province  where the premier himself did not do his best to improve health care for all. “,it’s surprising and concerning that depending on where you live in Canada, your risk for heart attack is different,”  “If you can’t afford to buy healthy and nutritious foods, your risk factors for heart attack are more common,”   “If you don’t have the time or the funds to make a healthy (food) choice, that’s a problem. .  This report suggests that it does translate into an increased risk for heart attack.” The federal government and the provinces now needs to legislate policies aimed at encouraging healthy eating, adequate medical care so that they reach all Canadians.

“Is it possible that the majority of heart deaths in Canada are caused by one virus or another, Virus spread from infected animals, gum diseases, etc., ? Why is here  too no mention of this by our news media or medical community? Does the medical community basically still not want to tell you how these viruses are caused, spread? I think, they know, a lot more then they are telling, or the media is telling. Although, surprising some related information can be found here it is still rare. “
 
Let’s first be fair to ourselves and others and note that no one thing specifically causes all the cancers, diabetic sick persons, heart problems in the world, rather it is a combination of several different factors starting with our personal ignorance, and the false neglect of the our Bodies.
   
To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of their sicknesses too.. including their stress, anxieties, their wrong doings too. Hypertension is another  main, leading personal cause of heart attacks, strokes and other major medical problems. For most North Americans even if you don’t have high blood pressure now, you need to make a serious lifestyle, food  adjustments now to avoid personal health problems, especially Cancer and Heart diseases next in one’s future. A person is considered hypertensive with a blood-pressure reading of 140/90 millimetres of mercury (mmHg) or higher. Healthy adults should have a blood pressure in the range of 120/80 mmHg, although that target varies with age and other health conditions. There are many DIFFERENT factors that contribute to high blood pressure, including first the type of one’s food consumption, too much read meat, not enough fruit and vegetables,  being overweight, a lack of physical activity, excessive sodium consumption and aging. Hypertension, while it has few obvious symptoms, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
 
While clearly the medical advances against even the more serious sickness have taken gigantic leaps now these days, I sadly too often these  days have to tell the truth to the sick persons that next the patients themselves are now more often to blame for their sudden deaths,  their illness degenerating mostly too even by reaping what they sowed, by their own neglect of basic laws reaping relating to the to human anatomy too, a) by their own failure to insure  healthy eating, b) their own  failure to get  proper sleep, c) and their own failure to handle, resolve unbeneficial stress adequately.
 
 Many people do not understand also what a  depression or a mid life crisis is.. it is that void,, the emptiness that you do have when you lost somethinng that once was important to you.. solution to depressions are good music, good sleep, good food, having good friends and not rather bad ones.
 
Majority of patients still lie to themselves when they do now falsely think they will not reap what they have personally sowed and thus they are committing personal suicide as a result. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/she-was-selfish-self-absorbed-self-centered/
 
 Lack of sleep is still a killer.. so is not eating properly.. so is unresolved stress…
 
God is a God of love and he really does not want us to suffer needlessly so he is willing to help us if we meet his conditions as defined also  in the Bible. (1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
 
 Absurd TD health study calls for health  new health tax. To focus medical practitioners on the most effective treatments, it says the province should set up a “commission on quality and value for health care.” It would assess the best and most cost-effective medical treatments for specific conditions, and evaluate new drugs and treatments, and let medical practitioners know the results says TD’s chief economist, Don Drummond. The TD report also says doctors should be paid differently, getting a blend of salary and payment for the volume of patients and treatments.  Public health care is unsustainable if spending continues unchecked, Left unchecked, health-care spending is set to rise to 80 per cent of total program spending.  Here is the important main root, real problem the same report does not face firstly. In reality the  Doctors are God. You cannot touch them or deal with them. The medical society itself forbids the criticism of any doctor, by any doctor or anyone else for that matter. for only lenthly self regulation can review any criticism of a bad doctors performances. The same fact generally applies to the unionized  nurse and hospital workers and so no work improvement, cost effectiveness can be attained,   thus having any possible effective cost or quality supervisors is also impossible. Our medical services always tend to be unsupervised, uncontrolled  with about 50 percent of the existing workers being pretentious, incompetent, inadequate, and so of course putting more money into a pail full of holes like this is an ever increasing  waste of money.  Solution? a cheap one too, Do merely  start the exposure exemplary firing all bad doctors, bad nurses, bad civil and bad public servants as well.   Start firing the bad hospital managers.   http://thenonconformer2.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/a-pretentious-medical-care-system-in-quebec/

    Protest AGAINST THE proroguing of Parliament

     

    We now  know all persons can easily tell that our Parliament is closed for a holiday because the New federal Conservative Canadian  Government even their local constituent offices do not bother to acknowledge emails, letters send to them including  calgary@ablonczy.com ; Aglukkaq.L@parl.gc.ca ;  Day.S@parl.gc.ca ; Toews.V@parl.gc.ca ; all while they all still do even get paid for it too.. or what they too do need PM Stephen Harper’s permission to do so as well?

    With at least 1.6 million Canadians still out of work, or even much more in reality, Stephen Harper has decided that Members of Parliament shouldn’t work either. While it’s clear that Conservatives don’t think MPs should be doing their jobs helping the unemployed even   in Ottawa, and what they still haven’t explained is why too? Since Harper’s announcement in December, Conservatives now have offered over half a dozen pitiful reasons for shutting down the House of Commons all paid by the taxpayers still for the next five weeks.. 

    A recent poll suggests Canadians weren’t buying Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s contention that his government is working hard despite the suspension of Parliament.  The Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey indicates 39 per cent of respondents believed the government had been not at all active or hardworking since Harper prorogued Parliament, which is not due back until March 3. That’s more than triple the 12 per cent who said the government has been very active and hardworking.

    The Canadian Press   TORONTO – In a display that was anything but apathetic, thousands of Canadians of varying political stripes clogged city streets across Canada demanding Prime Minister Stephen Harper reopen Parliament and get back to work.  Hordes of protesters crammed Toronto’s downtown square, cradling signs denouncing the Prime Minister’s decision to suspend Parliament until early March.  Crowd estimates widely varied, but thousands of people closed down a busy section of Yonge Street to sing, march and chant anti-Harper slogans.  “These demonstrations that are happening all over the country are Canadians’ way of saying ‘you are wrong, you are completely wrong about us. You pushed us, you pushed us and now we’re mad,” said an impassioned Andrea Dale, 46, who works in the financial sector.  Thousands also turned up on the lawn of Parliament Hill in Ottawa.  Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff and NDP leader Jack Layton offered up lively speeches that blasted Harper’s decision to shut down the House of Commons.  “Mr. Harper unlock these doors,” Layton told the crowd. “Mr Harper unlock the doors of the people’s house it’s not your house.”  Layton told the crowd the NDP favours the creation of a new law that would prevent the prime minister from proroguing Parliament unless he had the support of the majority of the House of Commons.  “My fellow Canadians, we say to Mr. Harper, it’s not too late to recall Parliament. It’s prorogued but you can call us back to work simply by picking up the phone and calling the Governor General,” Layton said.  Layton said the prorogued Parliament has stalled important legislation on pensions, stifled debate on the war in Afghanistan and shut down all discussion of the way forward on tackling climate change. Ignatieff said Liberal MPs planned to return to work on Parliament Hill, as scheduled, on Monday morning.  “This is a demonstration that shows that Canadians understand their democracy, care for their democracy and if necessary, will fight for their democracy,” Ignatieff told the crowd, drawing a loud roar from the crowd.  In Montreal, hundreds stood in the streets and listened as speakers discussed the international response to the democracy debate in Canada.  “We no longer want to be the laughing stock that gets told by The Economist that we don’t know how to run a democracy,” university professor Daniel Weinstock told the cheering crowd, recalling a recent article in the British journal critical of the suspension of Canada’s Parliament.  Canadian, Quebec and sovereingist flags flapped behind Weinstock as he spoke. Behind him stood Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe, Liberal MPs Marc Garneau and Justin Trudeau and Green Party deputy Jacques Rivard.  Former Nova Scotia NDP leader Robert Chisholm was at a rally in Halifax.”I feel what the prime minister has done by closing the House … he’s shutting down democracy and that’s wrong,” Chisholm said in an interview as the rally began.  In Edmonton, about 250 people stood in -7 temperatures and ankle-deep snow in a park just off a popular shopping street to make their point, many chanting “Yes to perogies, no to prorogation!”  Those gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery handed out buttons and carried hand-painted signs that said, “Prorogue the Conservatives.” Grassroots organizers in Vancouver passed out hand-painted signs and buttons to more than 600 people who bopped to the beat of a funk band playing next to the Olympic countdown clock before marching through the city.  Kathleen Glynn-Morris said she’s embarrassed by a government that seems to be using the upcoming Games as an excuse.  “I think it’s nonsense. They’re public servants. We pay for them to do a job,” she said. “The rest of us can’t say ‘Oh well, now the Olympics are here people aren’t interested in our job, what we’re doing.”  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100123/national/parliament_prorogue_protests

    OTTAWA – Canada’s swift response to the tragedy in Haiti hasn’t boosted the federal government’s popularity among voters, a new poll suggests. Voters apparently remain unhappy about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s unpopular decision to prorogue Parliament and aren’t swayed by the popular effort to help Haiti, said pollster Allan Gregg. The latest Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey suggests the Conservatives and Liberals are in a statistical dead heat, with 32 per cent supporting the Tories and 31 per cent for the Liberals. The gap is well within the poll’s margin of error.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100127/national/tories_poll

    A bad image problem  is not the only main problem for Alberta even in July 2013..

    Many of those affected by the recent flooding in Canmore,  Calgary, Exshaw, high River, etc,  are now looking back on the month that was and are starting to rebuild.

    Flood info sessions planned. Provincial experts on flood mapping and the disaster recovery program will be available in communities affected by the floods at upcoming public information sessions.

    The province is mandating that homeowners who live in the floodway can choose to rebuild and repair, or leave. If they choose to relocate, the province will assist them — in some cases, that means purchasing land. Residents living in flood fringe areas must flood-proof their homes if they want to eligible for flood relief in the future. The first information session was held in High River tonight. There are sessions planned in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Canmore, Lethbridge, Bragg Creek and Turner Valley. Many Albertans still do say they’re having a tough time finding contractors and equipment and others are still waiting for word on compensation from insurance companies and the province. The provincial government announced its long-term flood recovery and said “We know this work will take years — not weeks or months — and we will be there to support communities in their renewal efforts over the long term,” said Premier Alison Redford in a release. Prepared by the Flood Recovery Task Force, the plan looks to focus on four areas: financial support, repairing infrastructure, mitigating long-term environmental impacts and nurturing economic growth through reinvestments.

    “The Alberta government’s decision to reconsider the closure of about 350 acute-care beds in Calgary and Edmonton has divided health-care professionals.The decision to close the beds was made last fall by Ron Leipert, the former health minister, in an attempt to save the health-care system $50 million a year. Reviewing the decision might give the health-care system time to catch its breath and come up with a realistic long-term plan, said Karen Craik, spokeswoman for the United Nurses of Alberta.” 

     “They will take out hospital beds and turn the rooms into offices for more paper pushers as they have done in Sask. We don’t have nurses to care for patients as they are pushing paper, this seems to be far more important in our free health care system than actually healing the sick. Our free health care system which we pay for dearly is good as long as you don’t get sick, then you have to go to the US to get help.”

    “Just plain bad management on the part of government.  No plan. No compassion. People come last. Why did anyone vote for these fools? Uneducated, no talent, and arrogant. The perfect mix.”.  ” You know, I just do not get it! We have built all these huge hospitals—Royal Alex, University, Misercordia, and filled them with the latest in new technology but now we are starting to close down BEDS? What the he!! is going on here? Is anyone noticing the absurdity? Cutting corners in the most ridiculous places! STOP PAYING OUT BONUSES TO HATCHET MEN! There will be a start!”  ”  why did they stop chiropractic care off of ahc ? there are lots of people who need chiropractic care , including myself , I have severe back problems due to car accidents (not my fault ) , I  didn’t cause the accidents and I  didn’t ask to get hit , but without the visits to the chiropractor , I  can barely function with the pain I  endure daily . but yet , if i decide to get a sex change , they will cover the costs , what idiot decided that ?” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2010/01/22/calgary-hospital-beds-reconsider.html

    “What kind of ‘idiots’ are running Alberta anyway?  Why would the people of Alberta keep voting for such an incompetent Party?   It is so obvious that the priorities of the Alberta ‘Conservative’ government are xxxx backwards. They need to be removed!!!!” “It’s pathetic. So sad to see how this government wastes money and props up their buddies leaving Albertans with a depleted Heritage fund, no money for infrastructure, and poor health care after 16 years of “boom” time. Can’t wait til the time is up for these clowns and their corruption is properly exposed. It’ll make the sponsorship scandal look like peanuts.” “This Stelmach Government has gone nuts.   No wonder Alberta’s deficit is $7 billion dollars but is exected to top $8 billion dollars.  Stelmach must be forced to resign.” ” It’s WAY past time that Slow Eddie and his gang of arrogant, self-entitled incompetents were shown the door by voters.   Albertans deserve intelligent, ethical leaders who are committed to democratic principles of transparency, openness, and public service. This Conservative bunch, like fish that’s stayed out of the fridge longer than it should, need to be escorted to the trash bin. Their knuckle-dragging ideology is far past its best-before date.” “I suggest to Mr. Liepert that he should offer voluntary retirement packages to himself and the rest of his crew before cutting funding to health care. These serverence packages are ludicrous and outrageous.” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2009/09/02/edmonton-severance-health-care.html

    Emergency room waits up: report CBC – Mon Jan 25, 10:10 PM  Wait times in Alberta’s emergency wards have gone up over the past few years in spite of efforts to deal with the issue, according to a report released by the Health Quality Council of Alberta.  The survey also indicated an overall care rating related to a range of factors such as cleanliness, respect and discharge information was virtually unchanged in the two-year period.

    Now many of us already do now about the all too-common Medical  PATIENT killers like:
    -MEDICATION MISTAKES. Wrong pills! Wrong blood transfusions! Wrong intravenous drips! Don’t bother even  to guessing how often this happens.  It’s worse than your wildest nightmares. Unsupervised Doctors and Hospitals make many mistakes like these every hour.
    -DOCTORS’ DIRTY HANDS. Incredibly, recent surveys show that doctors wash their hands between patients only half the time… and nearly 90% of stethoscopes harbor staph bacteria.
    -UNNEEDED SURGERY.  Surgeons could have used many less costly approaches THAT WOULD HAVE LESS NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS AND QUICKER HEALING TOO   choose instead to do the costly surgery
    – DOCTORS FAIL TO PRESCRIBE PROPER MEDICAL TEST . Medical Technicians have to be told what specific blood tests also have to be done first.. they do not automatically check for every possible sickness or diseases thus.
    AND MANY MORE

     

    Alberta’s health care has been poorly managed, by health Ministers and Premiers too. Bad manager, Ex Premier of Alberta Ralph Klein gave in and gave a generous pay raise to the doctors, and this is what predictably  happened next! Ralph got what he deserved, he got booted out.

    I had also had helped to fire a pretentious previous Albertan health Minister Gary Marr who used outside consultants to do his work that he was paid for doing.. Another Albertan Con artist
      
    A presentation made by Alberta Health Services in October suggests the province’s health-care deficit could grow by as much as $1 billion next year. In an online document called “The Great Alberta Experiment: First Hundred Days,” three top representatives from Alberta Health Services outlined how the province will face an additional deficit of $500 million to $1 billion in 2010-11 before any cost-cutting measures are taken into account.Yet Alberta Health Services will actually run out of cash in February 2010 before the province releases its spring budget, according to the document presented to the HealthCare Leaders’ Association of B.C. http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Health+system+quickly+going+broke/2288601/story.html
    Health Minister Ron Liepert must resign his cabinet post. He has lost the confidence of Albertans with his botched handling of the H1N1 vaccine program. The buck ultimately stops with Liepert, who sent Albertans grievously mixed messages, and deflected the blame for the long lineups and this week’s clinic closures, while backtracking and flip-flopping on policy statements. He even pointed an accusing finger at the media for chronicling the confusion he is ultimately responsible for. http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/editorials/Health+minister+must+resign/2174525/story.html

    Hospitals Staff stress ‘unsustainable’: and what about the Patient’s stresses

     

     

    In the Montreal   Verdun hospital the patients ward does not have air conditioning but where the nurses work it is air conditioned by room window units. Visit the 3 floor for a great example. A sick elderly patient who is often cold, catches a cold easily too, was in one of these rooms for a blood transfusion and the nurse in charge was asked to temporary close the air conditioning for a few hours, but the selfish, self centered nurse next refused to do so because she would have to work under warm conditions. Whose welfare was more important? The Patient got sicker as a direct result too. How will the clearly pretentious, useless Ombudsman reply here? https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/thenonconformer%e2%80%99s-canadian-blog/

    Emergency room waits up: report CBC – Mon Jan 25, 10:10 PM  Wait times in Alberta’s emergency wards have gone up over the past few years in spite of efforts to deal with the issue, according to a report released by the Health Quality Council of Alberta.  The survey also indicated an overall care rating related to a range of factors such as cleanliness, respect and discharge information was virtually unchanged in the two-year period.   .

    The chicken or the egg  which came first . Now for a few years I have been going to a McGill Hospital and going also to his  McGill Family doctor to try to get much need medical  help for my father but we were unable till  he finally ended up hospitalized in a McGill Hospital for the same OLD problem.. Some people say that our Medicare systems problems  are compounded  by too many sick people, while others say there now are too many sick people cause the  doctors have not  yet even helped them, but now both groups are also hindered for certainty  by bad medical beauracrats.. bad Hospital managers.. 
     
    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, https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/14/the-great-debate-private-or-socialized-medicare/
      

     MY PERSONAL MONTHS OF DIRECT OBSERVATION ABOUT THE MEDICAL WORKERS WHO COMPLAIN THAT TOO MANY ERRORS ARE CAUSED BY THE WORK OVERLOAD ACTUALLY TEND TO MEAN, COMPLAIN ABOUT HAVING  TO DO ANY WORK AT ALL, FOR THEY TOO OFTEN DO THINK THEY MERELY SHOULD BE PAID EVEN MORE FOR COMING TO WORK. THESE SAME RATHER TOO OFTEN INCOMPETENT, UNQUALIFIED, PRETENTIONS WORKERS , THESE BAD PERSONS STILL  SEEM TO HAVE THE ENERGY TO SOCIALIZE WITH THEIR COLLEAGUES, TAKE LONG COFFEE AND LONG BREAKS, TO DO THEIR OWN BUSINESS ON THE SIDE.

     

     These people, the same persons and the bad persons, managers  who now hired them too firstly now still are are all career incompatible and they should be clearly encouraged to find work elsewhere, to find work they like to do, such as being on social aid?

     
        
    Recently a supervisor went for a month long holiday and the medical workers all stopped working hard, started to play around, started to waste their time as I saw firsthand. That was the bad effect of having no good supervisor in place to to replace  him too.
     
    One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
     
       
    These people, the same persons and the bad persons, managers  who now hired them too firstly now still are are all career incompatible and they should be clearly encouraged to find work elsewhere, to find work they like to do, such as being on social aid?
     
       
    The lack of  DECENT OUTPUT is too often a false excuse for the whole system’s malaise the  mostly bad, pretentious supervisors.

    NOW I HAVE HEARD ALL KIND OF REASONS WHY THE BAD EMPLOYEES WERE, ARE SUPPOSEDLY JUSTIFIED IN NOT DOING THEIR WORK PROPERLY BUT SOME HOW THE EXCUSES ALL APPEAR VOID WHEN COMPARED WITH THE OUTPUT OF THE GOOD WORKERS.

    Staff stress at Ottawa hospitals ‘unsustainable’: report  Ottawa Citizen –  Workers at Ottawa’s four hospitals are suffering “unsustainable” levels of stress and overload just as they face threatened funding freezes, bed closings and layoffs, says a new study on …

    Ottawa hospital workers face ‘unsustainable’  

     One of the real sad fact of real life is those minority group of perverted persons, the people abusers who see others as an object to be used to advance themselves, to make money from or to profit from, and once they see that you are of no use to them they immediately do dump you, do not use you anymore,  and that includes not just many of the business persons, realtors, landlords, news reporters, editors, salesmen, consultants, professionals, neighbours, acquaintances  cops, civil and public servants, pastors, politicians, doctors and  medical staff now as well.. I usually do refer to them as prostitutes, gigalos,  pimps  or slave drivers. So when these same people next often get depressed, do face major negative setbacks.. my heart now basically does not bleed for them..

    Hospitals Staff stress being now  ‘unsustainable’ is a 50 year old problem even in Canada and is directly related to the individual poor hospital managers:  Medicine often today mean the doctors and  unions own the health care delivery system. No one can basically be fired even, no matter how uninterested  they appear or how incompetent they are. And it is clearly illegal to try and deliver a better product because someone one else on the floor will object to it. Nice racket.

    Now from decades of personal experiences I have written many times that if you are SERIOUSLY ILL YOUR LOCAL FAMILY DOCTOR WILL BE OF NO USE TO YOU, YOU NEED TO GO TO A HOSPITAL TRIAGE CLINIC WHERE THEY ALSO HAVE THE PROPER  TESTING EQUIPMENT AND STAFF AS WELL HOPEFULLY.  I have been to a good local hospital the LaSalle Angrignon Hospital for example, that provides excellent care, but they are humble enough to send sick patients elsewhere for proper diagnosis if they are unable to recognize the sickness, problem.. SADLY SOME POORLY EQUIPPED AND STILL POORLY STAFFED HOSPITALS DO NOW REFUSE TO SENT MANY OF THEIR SICK PATIENTS ELSEWHERE FOR A PROPER DIAGNOSIS BUT RATHER  DO TRY TO HELP THEM LOCALLY with even the not fully trained, or not fully developed, still incompetent, family doctors AND THIS PERVERSITY IS UNACCEPTABLE.

    Meanwhile a 30 years experienced teaching  nursing supervisor came yesterday to ask the patient if he would allow her students, nurses assistants in training to come and observe the other nurses tomorrow. They will be at the LGH Hospital for 2 months practical training. Next  the patient’s nurse asked this supervisor to take the patient’s pulse and temperature while I was sitting there. She the nursing supervsiror  did not know where to stick the thermometer and how to put the pressure cuff on the patients arm cause she said she had not done it for a long time.. she apologized for this.. and I was wondering what she had taught her students before this?

    My being nice to even one bad person is still a major waste of time, and even to any bad Hospital managers, for too many Hospital managers and bad Hospital employees REALLY STILL do not care at all about the patient’s good welfare, sickness, problems, but only their own GOOD WELFARE. For  all they the staff they seem mainly do care about is keeping their own jobs,  getting a raise, promotion and doing the minimum amount of work possible too, because only the fear of firing can cause any hospital employee to do a better job.  So really now start by firing now all of the the bad Hospital managers, ( also all Bad School mangers, etc..), the bad Health (and education  Ministers) firstly as well. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/06/11/emergency-wards-hospitals-health-ministers/

    Alberta MP Diane Ablonczy  minister of state for seniors do note that care for seniors in our Geriatric Hospitals now as well suffer. 

     IT IS A RIOT TO ME HOW PEOPLE HAVE GENERAL SOLUTIONS TO DEALING WITH THE MEDICAL INADEQUACIES AND AVOID THE LOCAL SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS. And what is the specific local solutions? Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons works best and serves everyone the best, that means going after the bad Hospital directors, bad doctors, bad supervisors, bad ombudsman, bad, lazy, no good  hospital staff now too.

     Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try sometimes to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A very good rule is never to go to a hospital alone, doctors are  afraid of loud mouthed witnesses who can cause them to be sued for mal  practice and cause their mal practice insurance rates to go up significantly.. so sick people with close family members who talk to the doctor tend to get better care.  http://angerblog.wordpress.com/2008/01/13/angry-physicians-are-a-liability/

     

    The worst kept secret in hospitals nationwide is the widespread tension and conflict between physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, administrators and other ancillary staff such as inhalation therapists and nurse anesticists. Even due to selfishness, self centeredness, money conflicts, their clear lack of love for patients and others, overly ambitious persons, many of whom are in the wrong profession and should be fired, get a job elsewhere too.  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, https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/08/14/the-great-debate-private-or-socialized-medicare/

     
    Attention Quebec Premier Jean Charest. I had written to you many times before now on this subject, NEXT  You had wanted me to do the Quebec’s health Minister’s job while our health Ministers got paid for it, dealing with the bad McGill Hospitals in Montreal.. well in that case I do now also keep informed by email all of Canada’s major news editors, and Canada’s elected representatives, all 1000 of them,  so we can all learn and deal with the unacceptable common doctors abuses. And I do let the whole world read what I have undeniable found, saw.  
     
     The west island Montreal medical amalgamation of medical services, doctors, by the Quebec government and the actual results.  The Lakeshore General Hospital, LGH,  managers now they have called too many rather poorly supervised, poorly supervised, poorly supervised, poorly supervised,  and even  incompetent pretentious private practice doctors  to forcibly service the LGH, Hospital patients.  The mere even tip of the icebergs as to why the Montreal West Island Lakeshore General Hospital , LGH,  is still a FARCICAL ZOO.  Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty persons works best and serves everyone the best, that means going after the bad Hospital directors, bad doctors, bad supervisors, bad ombudsman, bad, lazy, no good  hospital staff now too. as also posted on the internet now by me.  The Quebec government recently had clearly amalgamated the west island medical services, even the related resultant private  local doctors under one head, control that is now  located also in the west island Lakeshore General Hospital 5th floor.    And in this forced Quebec government amalgamation of medical services and professionals the too often still  charge card happy, and pretentious  doctors who now were forced unwillingly to do compulsory short term medical services at this LGH, hospital, forced medical conscription services do often a bad job.. These now even too often quacks, obsolete doctors, even with medical degrees  are not any real specific medical experts, but now even rather still mere unacceptable pretenders working, and WERE NOW EVEN learning  forcibly in the hospital wards. It does not take a medical degree to recognize a clearly pretentious, stupid doctor now too. And that clearly was why it became so obvious to me and so many other patients, family members as well how dumb they rather were and why there was so many complaints about bad medical care… I alone had encountered in the last 2 weeks 4 lying, no good, pretending doctors in my father room and when I often  had asked them specific  medical questions next all they did generally  was to give me inadequate , false, evasive answers, and how dumb and stupid now did they think I myself  really was.. Next it seems all the doctors could do was to prescribe a  morphine patch to many patients  while they falsely allowed them to suffer and even die.. waiting for someone more competent than them to come up with the much needed  medical adequacies, treatment.. It now all explains the ongoing high rate of sick people in the 4th floor geriatric wards who do not get much better, rather more sicker and many die instead.. None, None of this is still acceptable.

    SMOKING, ALCOHOL, BAD DRUGS, BAD FOOD, LACK OF EXERCISE, STRESS & bad cops

      thecartoon-102

    Now as usual next the big  liars will try to justify their pot and alcohol sins, addictions.. even by lying and saying that no one died from smoking pot.. but they have had heart attacks as a direct result.. and at least 30 percent of the car accidents are caused by impaired drugs, pot smoking driving.. for a start.. Pot brain damage like alcohol brain damage is also irreversible.. marijuana’s effects from heavy, long-term use have been linked to neuorological problems such as learning difficulty and strokes.. Alcohol’s  effects from heavy, long-term usage has also  been linked to neuorological problems such as learning difficulty, Mental retardation too.  by the way people who take pot tend to drink alcohol and commit adultery as well

    Smoking marijuana results in changes in the bloodstream that may put chronic users at risk for serious cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke.;Within a few minutes after smoking marijuana, the heart begins beating more rapidly and the blood pressure drops. Marijuana can cause the heart beat to increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, and can increase even more if other drugs are used at the same time. Because of the lower blood pressure and higher heart rate, researchers found that users’ risk for a heart attack is four times higher within the first hour after smoking marijuana, compared to their general risk of heart attack when not smoking.
    http://alcoholism.about.com/od/pot/a/effects.-Lya.htm

    Heart attack is directly responsible for about 11% of all deaths in Canada every year. This represents half of all deaths due to coronary artery disease. In 2003, heart attack was the leading cause of death from circulatory diseases, at 48 deaths per 100,000 Canadians. Lung cancer was the leading cause of death from cancer, at 47 deaths per 100,000. Prostate cancer mortality decreased from 27 to 24 deaths per 100,000 men.

    thecartoon-222

    IN ONE YEAR 60% of fatally injured drivers in Canada had a positive reading for blood alcohol and 160,000 people were convicted of impaired   driving .  IMPAIRED DRIVING CONVICTIONS ARE MAINLY ENFORCED 2 MONTHS OF THE YEAR FIRSTLY, AND ARE NOT DONE THE WHOLE YEAR.  generally alcohol-related driving offences account for approximately 25% of all Criminal Code prosecutions. ” If you drink and drive, it’s everybody’s business” still.

    AND in Canada in all provinces now too DRIVING at  supposedly  UNSAFE SPEED, supposedly speeding  ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT 14.5 PERCENT OF  VEHICLE ACCIDENT’S DEATHS AS OPPOSED TO IMPAIRED DRIVING AT 45 PERCENT!
     
    so tell me, do tell us all  again why the police do not go after the drunk drivers more, and when they do it is only 2 months of the year, December and January, when the alcoholics do stay alcoholics all year and likely drive impaired still all year too.. so why does the police fill up the courts with the fast buck, revenue generating traffic tickets, helping the insurance firms to get more money too by increasing the insurance rates??? The cops, RCMP too should really now  spend more time on putting into jail all the alcoholics who drive, but also allof the bad civil and public servants, politicians,  and bad citizens who abuse the taxpayers money rather firstly too. And why are they not doing it? Cause even they abuse the taxpayers monies too? and the likely fact that half of the cops are also drunks..
     
    A  survey of Ontario policing  found that, on average, a police officer laid 2.5 drinking driving charges per year. The study suggests several reasons for low enforcement rates:
    not enough personnel (small towns only have one patrol unit that has to be available for emergencies and cannot be sidetracked by an impaired driving situation)
    – time-consuming arrest proceedings (including the availability of a technician for BAC  testing)
    -attitudes of officers and administrators (not a serious crime, too time-consuming)
    – the court system (many forms to process the charge, mistakes lead to acquittals)
    -amount of paperwork required (2 hour average to do paperwork) (Vingilis, 1991, 202)

    Research ALSO found a significant divergence in the punishments given to impaired drivers BY THE POLICE AND THE COURTS, locally and Canada wide too.

    In an average year in Canada, impaired driving killed 1,212 persons, injured 71,532, and caused damage to 236,375 vehicles, translating into 1,010 fatal crashes, 48,890 injury-only crashes and 155,510 property-damage only (PDO) crashes, totaling an average of 205,410 crashes in all. In turn, on average, this cost Canadians between $1.90 billion (Real Dollar Estimate model) and $11.28 billion (Willingness to Pay model) dollars, depending on the costing model and assumptions used. To put this another way, that represents a cost of between about $59.00 and $341.00 per Canadian. EXCLUDING THE EXTRA COSTS FOR INSURANCE NOW TOO..

    Jurisdiction   Estimated Fatalities,   2006 IMPAIRED DRIVING
    British Columbia 458
    Alberta 477
    Saskatchewan 157
    Manitoba 144
    Ontario 885
    Quebec 692
    New Brunswick
    Nova Scotia 93
    Prince Edward Island 28
    Newfoundland & Labrador 48
    Yukon, NW Territory & Nunavut 27
    Canada 3,122

    Jurisdiction  Estimated % Alcohol-Involved – Fatalities,  2006
    British Columbia 36.70%
    Alberta 43.40%
    Saskatchewan 47.90%
    Manitoba 44.60%
    Ontario 34.30%

    In 2006, it was estimated that about 368,396 individuals were injured in motor vehicle crashes. MADD Canada estimates that approximately 75,374 of these individuals were injured in impaired driving crashes (207 per day). Note that this figure does not include impaired crash injuries occurring on the water or snowmobiling.

    It is very interesting that when most of the news reporters, governments tend to write about heart attacks, or car accidents they seem to downplay, omit alcohol’s effect and why is that?

    On the surface, at least, Canadians  appear to be among the healthiest in the country when it comes to cardiovascular disease.  But the realties  are deceiving and paint a much different picture once you look into them. Twenty-two per cent of them smoke, 60 percent of them drink alcohol, 50 per cent are overweight or obese and 67 per cent do not eat a healthy diet. Many persons have often, continually unresolved negative personal stress   All of these factors contribute to high blood pressure — and they are entirely preventable, or deal able with.  A lot of what we perceive to be healthy eating and doing actually isn’t.  For starters, all persons people should shake their addiction to salty, packaged meals. reduce their red meat consumptions, reduce their meal sizes, eat more regularly too, One of the biggest problems is the high amount of sodium in our food,” This salt encourages water in the blood to remain, and gives more work for the heart to pump. Everyone does have  responsibilities, parents, spouses, food distributors as do governments and food manufacturers. Now  it’s about all of us doing a better job to increase public awareness and promoting more lifestyle changes around being healthy. According to the World Health Association, high blood pressure is the leading risk for death in the world.  Hypertension is the leading cause of heart and stroke disease, but there are no obvious symptoms.  Now  regular Doctor checkups,  with a competent and not too often a pretentious doctor too, to screen for hypertension, Diabetes as well  are required since studies suggest will affect half of all Canadians by the time they turn 60.  Over time, high blood pressure can damage blood vessel walls causing scarring that promotes the buildup of plaque deposits, which narrow and eventually block blood flow. Increased blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and other diseases that many persons next do die from. One in five Canadians has high blood pressure — and many  Canadians are among the least likely in the country to take measures to lower it. Only  80 per cent of the 4.6 million Canadians with hypertension take medication to control it, according to new findings from Statistics Canada. Doing things like having a  healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fat is very effective, as is regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy body weight.  The prevalence of high blood pressure was about the same in men as in women, but men were less likely to be aware of their condition. The numbers should give all cause for concern.
    Blood Pressure Risk Factors
    – – Smoking
    – – Lack of exercise
    – – Poor diet and excess sodium
    – – Excessive alcohol consumption
    – – Being overweight or obese

    Hypertension another  leading personal cause of heart attacks, strokes and other major medical problems. For most North Americans even if you don’t have high blood pressure now, you need to make a serious lifestyle, food  adjustments now to avoid personal health problems, especially Cancer and Heart diseases next  in one’s future.   A person is considered hypertensive with a blood-pressure reading of 140/90 millimetres of mercury (mmHg) or higher. Healthy adults should have a blood pressure in the range of 120/80 mmHg, although that target varies with age and other health conditions. There are many DIFFERENT factors that contribute to high blood pressure, including first the type of one’s food consumption, too much read meat, not enough fruit and vegetables,  being overweight, a lack of physical activity, excessive sodium consumption and aging. Hypertension, while it has few obvious symptoms, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of their sicknesses too.. including their stress, anxieties, their wrong doings too. I too have found one of the free great cure, a help to relieve my high blood pressure *, stress, and instead of keeping it all boiled up inside, I express it, share it with everyone else all of  the things that rightfully have peeved me off, and it seems I keep on coming back to my favorite complaints until they actually get resolved including .. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/cure-for-stress-high-blood-pressure-heart-attack/
       
     
    • Hospital deaths account for half of deaths annually Now about 225,000 Canadian patients a year suffer from hospital-acquired infections that substantially extend their stays, and between 8,000 and 12,000 people die annually as a result of  infection with common but dangerous infections – C. difficile, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) – The infections   C. difficile, MRSA and VRE – are not airborne, but spread by contact. yet the police make a lot of noise about number of   deaths caused by speeding AND DRUNK DRIVERS..  we need more cops rather in the hospitals aressting the bad Health Ministers, bad  doctors and bad nurses etc.,

    Meanwhile

    9 city employees fired in benefits claim fraud Toronto Star – BY THE NUMBERS The city’s fraud and waste hotline received tips leading to findings of wrongdoing in 42 cases. The auditor general highlighted 15 of the 42 cases in his report.

    Toronto refuses to release details of alleged fraud Globe and Mail

     

    TORONTO, ONTARIO Facing pressure to release more details about alleged fraud or wrongdoing investigated by the auditor-general, the city revealed that it had fired three staff and suspended 10 others without pay. But the city would not say for which among a list of allegations in the report, including theft and improperly cancelled parking tickets, the employees were punished. Meanwhile, in a separate case of alleged fraud, the city announced it had fired nine staff it had sent home with pay last month for allegedly filing false health-benefit claims and pocketing the cash. However, the mayor and city officials would not say how much, saying it could jeopardize a police probe into the allegations, uncovered by the company that administers the city’s benefits, Manulife Financial. The report includes allegations that employees improperly cancelled parking tickets, worked $50,000 in “excessive overtime,” viewed pornography on city computers, wrongly recommended private contractors to homeowners and rented their own apartments to social-services recipients. Pressed by reporters, Mr. Miller said three of the employees facing allegations in the auditor-general’s report were terminated, one resigned, and another 10 were suspended without pay. Mr. Ford, like other members of the audit committee, received a confidential briefing on the punishments behind closed doors but was “severely warned” not to share what he learned. He accused the mayor of trying to keep a lid on the allegations and the city of being too soft on the accused employees: “It’s coming from the top.”

    Now we all have heard about the vast city hall corruption in Montreal..  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/check-out-the-serious-very-large-amount-of-alcohol-consumption-that-was-is-being-carried-out-at-the-montreal-city-hall/
