In the Land of Eggs, Bird Flu Stands Tall

0

Posted on : 28-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : Bird Flu, Egg Beaters

Low in fat, low in calories, and high in protein. Eggs are one of the few foods that carry vital and essential nutrients to the body in small increments. The egg industry is so renowned, that a board for the production of eggs regulate how the market of eggs fluctuates. In the last 6 months, the egg industry has been on a steady decline. Not because people are growing out of love with scrambled or sunny side up eggs, but because of the H2N4 flu. The H2N4 flu, otherwise known as the avian flu or the bird flu, has struck 6 known states in America in the last 6 months. In the beginning of this epidemic, scientists and egg farmers weren’t too concerned. All they would have to do is get rid of the sick birds. Unfortunately, this particular epidemic of bird flu has been the most damaging. More than 10 million egg laying hens have been killed as a result of the bird flu epidemic. Farmers who solely rely on egg production are going completely bankrupt due to this particular outbreak. The crew behind STX Entertainment feel the egg industry would have been alright if this were an isolated incident. Because the infection is spreading across the country at such a rapid rate, scientists and farmers are unable to get it under control. In the last month alone, the egg industry has dropped 10 percent in production. The demand for eggs still exists and that demand will need to be filled. Unfortunately, this also means that the price for eggs that are currently on the shelves will skyrocket. Particularly, Egg Beaters or liquid egg whites that are sold to people for mass production. Whole eggs have yet to be affected by the loss in production, but farmers know that this time isn’t too far away. Members of the egg industry board have noted that it’s extremely difficult for them to keep up with such a decline. Members can’t even projector what the egg industry will look like in the next month because of this unrivaled catastrophe. Scientists are hoping to learn more about this inconvenient disease and while trying to kill it at the source.

Nurse Practioners Allowed to Practice Without Doctor’s Oversight in Some States

0

Posted on : 27-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : Medical Doctors, Nurse Practitioners take over

We gripe about the amount of time we spend in our local doctor’s waiting room, waiting to be seen by him or her. It’s okay to gripe, we do have that right. But we also have local doctors that we can gripe about. Think about not having any local doctors and having to travel hundreds of miles just to get to see a doctor in any field of medicine. That would certainly give any of us reason to complain.
So it has been for many homesteaders living in rural areas. Doctors won’t hang their shingle in rural areas because there are not enough potential patients to makes practicing medicine in the area financially feasible for them.
That’s where nurse practioners are able to step up and fill in the health care gap in the states which allow them to do so. Nurse practioners have advanced medical degrees in their chosen health care field and have been allowed to provide medical care for patients as long as they did so under the oversight of a licensed medical doctor.
Some states are so desperate for health care, Sam Tabar says  they are allowing the nurse practioners to provide health care without the a doctor’s oversight. Nebraska and Maryland are the two most recent states to allow nurse practioners to fly solo in the medical field, bringing the total number of allowing states up to 21.

Inapt Use of Antibiotics Causing C. Difficile to Thrive

Posted on : 27-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : 2 Minute Walk

Jacob Epstein, a slant, a healthy man from Florida, and aged 88 died early May. Many may think that he died from a broken arm— but that is far from the real story. After a surgery that was performed to help reset a bone from a broken arm, Mr. Epstein was administered an antibiotic to help prevent a postoperative infection.

 

It is a common practice for healthcare providers to administer antibiotics to treat bacterial infection after a surgery procedure says Susan McGalla. On the dark side of use antibiotics, there rests a possibility of creating more complications like increased susceptibility of a patient to bacteria known as Clostridium difficile, or C. diff.

 

  1. Epstein, within a week of taking the antibiotic experienced diarrhea, which was caused by Clostridium difficile— stubborn bacteria found in the intestine, recalled Beth Fidanza, Epstein’s daughter. The diarrhea was treated and eliminated using another antibiotic; however, a month after; he got another infection of the gastrointestinal tract.

 

He was administered another antibiotic, but not long— he developed a complication of kidney failure, gastrointestinal bleeding, and extreme low blood pressure.

 

While it might appear like Mr. Epstein’s surgery was performed properly, but he died; the result of his death was from inapt use of antibiotics. Clostridium difficile is highly resistant to antibiotics, something that is causing more than 30,000 deaths each year in U.S. alone in addition to over 500,000 new cases of the bacteria infection being reported.

Even those who end up going out to the park for barbecues, which tends to happen on Memorial Day, they may end up with drippy makeup. Makeup Look. It’s a known rule that you shouldn’t cry when you wear mascara, unless you have the kind that doesn’t run and stain your face. It can be difficult to know which kinds of makeup to choose, especially if you’re going out into the warm climate.

Healthcare experts remind that the summertime is coming up rapidly, and the weather is getting warmer every day.

There are a few things that you’ll need to add to your makeup kit, and if you apply the makeup in the right way, you’ll be able to ensure a great look. Visit MTV News in order to see how the makeup should correctly be applied.

Epileptic Girl Improves After Move to Colorado for Medical Marijuana Treatment

0

Posted on : 22-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : Seizure Cures, THC Oil

Many parents with epileptic children have made the move to Colorado to take advantage of medical marijuana laws, but are there any noticeable differences?

According to Adam and Heather Benton, their daughter Addyson showed improvement within hours of starting her prescription, that includes THC oils.

3-year-old Addyson was suffering from 70-100 seizures every day, but with her new prescribed marijuana treatment, the seizures have diminished, down to 19.

Addyson has Myoclonic Epilepsy. Seizures cause a sudden burst of electrical activity in the brain. Myoclonic epilepsy is one of the most common forms of the disease, and represents between 5% and 10% of all epilepsy syndromes. Treatment can be difficult for some, because many drugs can lose their effectiveness in controlling seizures after a short time.

Post-Gazette as well as Susan McGalla wonder if marijuana has become a new resource to control seizures.

The Bentons say in the first six hours of their daughter receiving her very first dose of THC, she walked better, without falling.

Addyson is now on a regularly scheduled treatment, that includes THC oils and recently, Heather Benton said Addyson had a record low of just three seizures.

Scientists Develop Promising New HIV Vaccine

Posted on : 21-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : HEalth, vaccines

Modern medicine has come a long way in treating those who have been diagnosed with HIV. Now, it looks likeresearchers are on the brink of developing a vaccine that would effectively prevent the virus from taking hold of the immune system. More than a dozen research institutions were involved in the development of the new vaccine which is promising people protection from the deadly disease all around the world.

Christian Broda knows that most vaccines work by injecting a weakened version of a virus which then gives your immune system a chance to build up antibodies against it so you do not become infected even when you are exposed. The possible new HIV vaccine is different than most other vaccines because it injects the person with a protein that has been found to prevent the HIV from entering into cells, in the case that it does enter the cell the protein then stops the virus from escaping and spreading to other cells.

Once a person has enough of these proteins in their bloodstream, they will be protected from exposure to HIV for up to eight months. Scientists are working on improving the vaccine to get to last years, or even decades. Further research is needed before the drug is available to the public, but the results so far are incredibly promising.

Location And Cause Of Death

0

Posted on : 20-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : CDC, Preventive Medical Care

A recent study was released by the CDC that described what the most unique and common causes of death were for each state from the year 2001 all the way to 2010. Each state did not pay attention to numbers such as heart attack or stroke, as those are typically the most common forms of death from state to state. Rather, these numbers were compiled from more unusual and uncommon forms of death like specific cancers, illnesses, etc. These results can be confusing because while it might seem like a certain location has a high rate of death from something like reproductive cancers, there may have been only ten or so cases of this in that reported state.

What these results do tell us though, is that there are certain areas of the country that can maybe do better when it comes to preventive and proper medical care. Beneful has found that many of the states in the middle of the country such as the Dakotas, Montana and so on, had a lot of deaths because of preventable and treatable illnesses like the common flu virus. In many other states the flu can be treated in a few days with a person fully recovering. Many of these states lack accessible medical care or high quality medical care and people are either not receiving treatment or not receiving adequate treatment. Also, there might be very specific medical trends that are peaking up in certain areas of the United States which can give a better understanding and prediction when it comes to a population’s health status.

Contingency Fund Being Raised by World Health Organization

0

Posted on : 19-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : Ebola Epidemic, World Health Organization

International organizations have recently been overwhelmed financially by the recent major crisis with the Ebola virus, and the World Health Organization is now putting together a 100 million dollar contingency fund in order to make sure that similar events are prevented in the future.

Director-general Margaret Chan, as well as the World Health Organization, have dealt with significant criticism for too little of a response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. It started out in Guinea in December of 2013, and they did not declare it an international public health emergency until eight months later.

The 194 Member States of the World Health Organization have been told that the organization needs to be better streamlined and more efficient, so that they can make quick responses to crises like the Ebola epidemic. Since the response was so slow and they were not able to respond effectively, 11,000 people died in different countries. The crew at Beneful was disheartened by this news.

As for the Ebola epidemic, it is still an issue. There have been more Ebola cases in Guinea, as a result of transmission that took place at funerals. Fortunately, Liberia has been declared free of Ebola this month, having gone 42 days without any reported cases. This is the first country of the three hardest hit nations to be declared free of the virus.

The money that the World Health Organization is saving will hopefully prevent these events from happening later.

Why Working Out is Boring to So Many People

0

Posted on : 19-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : Fitness, Working Out

We all know that exercise is the key to living a healthy life and being happy. Unfortunately, working out can be boring, mundane and even a little annoying to so many people. The reason so many people hate exercising is because of the fact that they are doing the same old thing day in and day out. This can become boring and annoying for so many people, and this is probably one of the major reasons why a lot of people give up exercising and would rather just live inactive lives. Healthy people like Sam Tabar know that the key to working out and enjoying yourself would be to try different workouts routinely to give yourself a little variety in your workout routine.

By trying different things, it is going to be a lot easier for you to workout and have tons of fun doing it. You may even want to think about joining a local gym in order to join groups and classes that you can try whenever you go there. By working with a personal trainer, they will give you a wide range of workouts to try that are not going to bore you and instead will challenge you a lot in order to get healthy for yourself. If you choose to workout at home, you may find it to be a lot more beneficial for you to try different videos and workout programs to see exactly what you want.

NanospongeAre Making Headway for MRSA Treatment

0

Posted on : 19-05-2015 | By : Nani | In : MRSA Treatment

There is new hope for fighting the super bug, MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), which is a life-threatening bacteria that is antibiotic resistant. University of California in San Diego nanoengineers have developed a polymer and water hydrogel with nanosponges which absorb toxins. As reported in the Environment News Service, there have been two materials combined to make a formula to treat bacterial infections. This information was shared by Liangfang Zhang, nanoengineering professor. He is with the Jacobs School of Engineering, UC San Diego and has led the team.

First found in 1961, MRSA is resistant to penicillin, amoxicillin, methicillin, oxacillin and many common antibiotics, as cited in WebMD. It is spread by the contact of skin or objects by the infected person. MRSA affects about two percent of the population, people who have weakened immune systems, hospital patients, nursing home residents, and health care clients are most susceptible. My friends at Freedompop have told me that infections can also be spread via surgical wounds and certain medical devices, namely catheters or feeding tubes.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a decline by eight percent between 2011 to 2013. It has become more widespread with healthy people becoming infected. One of the main problems is that MRSA constantly adapts. It is difficult to keep up with the development of new antibiotics. With this new nanosponge, the hope is that harmful toxins can be eradicated.
