Alcohol Consumption

ALCOHOL (1)

Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally retarded .
.
Poison is a good choice of words, particularly when the substance is in the hands of young people who often think themselves immune from the dangers around them Drinking even one alcoholic beverage while soaking in the sun can increases skin cancer risk by 20 percent while drinking more than four glasses increases this risk by 55 percent, a new study finds . It’s estimated that roughly 13% of those watching the watching Super Bowl will consume alcoholic beverages. Too many deaths are also linked to energy drinks being mixed with alcohol. This is a dangerous combination . And it’s just a matter of time before new regulations start to surface here too. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people impaired by these products are young, often those not yet of legal drinking age. They mix it with juices and stimulant drinks that enhance the poisonous effects. According to the American Cancer Society, cancers linked to alcohol use include mouth, throat, voice box, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum, breasts, and even pancreatic cancer. For each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.
.
Heavy drinking can cause cancer, heart disease, stroke, liver failure and other diseases, and drinkers are more likely to die in acccidents or to be murdered. And people who drink and smoke together raise their serious health disease risk even more.
.
Alcohol is still an ‘important cause’ of premature death . Overall, most deaths were due to liver disease (63 per cent) and neuropsychiatric disorders (32 per cent). Excessive alcohol use can cause or exacerbate disorders such as alcohol dependence syndrome, depression, anxiety and psychotic episodes. In Canada, the U.S., Argentina and Costa Rica, Cuba, the highest mortality rates were seen among those aged 50 to 69 http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/the-problem-of-doing-your-own-thing/
.

Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers.

For women, the researchers observed, the risk of alcohol-related cancers – mainly breast cancer – increased even after one alcoholic drink a day One alcoholic drink a day is enough to increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer,

All people with a family history of cancer should also consider reducing their intake to below recommended limits or even abstaining altogether, “given the now well-established link between moderate drinking and alcohol-related cancers.”

The risks

  • Alcohol is linked to an increased risk of mouth, throat, gullet, bowel, liver and breast cancer
  • Smoking and drinking together further increases cancer risk
  • All types of alcohol increase cancer risk
  • The more you drink, the higher the risk
  • Cutting down on alcohol can reduce cancer risk

One in two people who smoke will die of a smoking related illness…

People can spend 20 years drinking alcohol and not feel any of the effects this is doing to them. Eventually you reap what you sowed and the damage shows up.

.

Pancreatitis – Alcohol is the second highest cause of pancreatitis. This is an inflammation of your pancreas, an organ that makes enzymes for digestion, and causes pain just below your ribs. If you’ve overdone it you may feel this pain for a few days. In some cases it can become severe and persistent. This is called acute pancreatitis and can be life threatening.

.

Liver disease is the term used to describe damage to the liver and there are two types. Acute is when liver problems develop over a few months and chronic is damage over a number of years.

.

Scientists are not sure exactly why drinking too much alcohol can damage your liver but the reasons include:

  1. Oxidative stress. When our liver tries to break down alcohol, the resulting chemical reaction can damage its cells. This damage can lead to inflammation and scarring as the liver tries to repair itself.
  2. Toxins in gut bacteria. Alcohol can damage our intestine which lets toxins from our gut bacteria get into the liver. These toxins can also lead to inflammation and scarring.

.

Early symptoms of liver disease can include:

  • fatigue
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pains

.

And liver damage symptoms can include bleeding in the gut

.

Diabetes – People who drink beer, alcohol are often overweight – and as a result, can go on to develop diabetes

A sobering new study finds that alcohol consumption in American states rises as the population’s politics becomes more liberal.The study shows a direct correlation between political beliefs and the demand for alcohol. The study compares sales of alcoholic beverages against the political leanings of a state’s members of Congress, as ranked by liberal organizations Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) and the AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE).The research reveals that states with more liberal representatives like Nevada tend to consume up to three times more alcohol per head than more politically conservative states like Arkansas and Utah

1 Peter 5 :8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.

Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells. It rather kills even existing brain cells..
.
Once the alcohol is absorbed into the tissue, it affects your mind and body. Blood alcohol concentration can rise up to 20 minutes after having a drink. After alcohol is absorbed it leaves the body in three ways: the kidneys, lungs, and liver. Alcohol is not a stimulant, it is actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous-system, it is capable of rupturing blood capillaries and veins, it does not warm you up; in fact it makes you colder by increasing perspiration and causing body heat loss, it damages the branched end of nerve cells that bring messages into the cell, causing disruptions to brain function. It depletes the body of many essential nutrients such as all the B vitamins, especially B1, B2, B3,B6, B12, folic acid, vitamins C and K, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat. It can lead to liver toxicity and disease. The high sugar content of alcoholic drinks can lead to hypoglycemia and predispose to diabetes. Drinking alcohol regularly can lead to its dependence. Drinking alcohol damages the liver, kidneys, and lungs
.
Alcohol consumption has previously been linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD), or osteoporosis, and increases the risk of fractures especially since bone fractures can be the result of falls, and one in three adults over 65 will experience a fall each year, this is a serious issue. And too much booze can cause people to age prematurely. It impairs your driving now too no matter how old you are. Some of the wider known effects of alcohol include diminished performance, mental impairment, possible addiction, diabetes and liver disease. Now there a very few people, though, who can have one small drink too.. Yes too many have ended up dying from alcohol abuse, and as well there are those whose alcoholism led them to stop taking care of themselves. Alcoholism certainly can increase the risk of many different diseases occurring, especially as an individual grows older, and most of the negative effects are irreversible as well.
.
“As alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion, it can have an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weaken the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems and can prove fatal in extreme cases. When the stomach is weakened it becomes less efficient at digesting food, which inevitably interferes with a healthy metabolism and positive weight loss. Also, after alcohol is consumed it is then the first energy supply to be used up by your body when combined with carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which postpone the fat-burning process. As a result this can lead to greater fat storage, meaning that whenever you drink you will not be burning away your fat stores in the near future. Another shocking fact is that alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as proteins and carbohydrates, seven calories per gram! And as all of these extra calories you are getting from alcohol contain zero nutrients, they accelerate fat storage while also having a negative effect on a healthy metabolism.”
.
Now every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
.
Statistics which show an increase of in the number of people binge drinking, getting drunk and that the statistics also show that we still have a long way to deal with this major problem. 81% of people who choose to drink are still exceeding the recommended daily limits. The cost of alcohol misuse to our society is very real. In just over 10 years, there has been a startling 86% increase in the numbers of people dying due to alcohol related harm. The harsh reality is that although alcohol misuse is known to be damaging and harmful to health and well-being, many people still drink to excess. This must change,
.
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time for a start you are definitely an alcoholic. Now besides the negative effect of alcohol in the private sector they do not booze it up as much as our civil and public servants, politicians have and do for sure. Politicians, civil and there Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk, and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
“One of the risks to seniors of drinking alcohol is that as human bodies age, they lose muscle mass and their body functions slow down, meaning it takes less alcohol for them to become more intoxicated or suffer other ill effects, such as bone loss or cerebral atrophy. Another problem that alcohol often interacts negatively with medication, which older people too often are be taking a significant amount of, depending on their health.” Alcohol may seriously increase your risk of health problems and even seriously now damage your heart. Although some would say it may offer some very marginal health benefits, for your heart. Are you willing to take the risks of bad health associated with the consumption of alcohol still then?
.
Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. 70 percent of Canadians drink alcohol, 15 percent Canadians are alcoholic, binge drinkers so of course alcohol is associated now with politics, Christian politicians as well. Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.
.
“What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,” for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”
.
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. 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..

Undeniably every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
.
Ever notice that if you watch the movies or the TV they give you a really lying, distorted image of alcohol drinkers where they are all smiling, happy faces too.. unlike the real taverns, bar scenes ehh.. where people cause trouble, are depressed, etc.,, Drinking alcohol cause permanent brain damage, it also causes a significant deterioration of one’s mental capabilities, deterioration of one’s inter personal relationship skills, it also causes more car accidents than speeding or not having adequate winter tires, it also reduces significantly one’s work productivity as well undeniably too. It has ruined many families as well. There are about 5,000 alcohol-related crashes in B.C., Canada every year, causing about 155 deaths and 3,000 injuries, according to the Insurance Corp. of B.C. – ICBC’s website.In BC alcohol revenues provide the government with $1 billion annually.
.
Provincial Governments, cops too do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. But health and enforcement costs related to alcohol were $57 million higher than revenue generated by alcohol sales. Alcohol consumption has increased almost twice as much in British Columbia as it has in the rest of the country, according to a new study.
.
Researchers at the University of Victoria Centre for Addictions Research say British Columbians’ alcohol consumption has risen 16 per cent since 1998. That’s almost twice the nine per cent increase seen in the rest of Canada. and if that is true now there should be twice as much arrests for drunk driving and twice as much prison incarceration for drunk driving too? is there or why not? Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process.
.
Also a review of B.C. accidents from 1999 to 2003 showed that nearly a third of such impaired drivers faced more drunk driving charges, even after they killed or maimed others in 84 per cent of the initial accidents.“Follow-up over a 4.5 year period indicated that 30.7 per cent of the injured impaired drivers were engaged in subsequent impaired driving, notwithstanding that they injured or killed someone in more than 84 per cent of initial crashes. These studies suggest that our emergency departments may have become safe havens for the worst drinking drivers, those drivers who are involved in fatal or personal injury crashes. They recover, get out of hospital, drive drunk again, and escape prosecution and conviction. It doesn’t take them long which is exactly why the conviction rate has to go up. There needs to be more intervention to get them off the roads,” Booze, gambling revenues now worth more than the oil- gas royalties to Alberta government all thanks to a past alcoholic premier there.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL.INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT HERE TOO..
.
About those self centered, clearly self oriented, selfish, immoral weasels who with the help of ostriches, snakes do try to falsely continue to justify their immoral acts of drunkenness.. even while they themselves escalated their hurts upon others and have also increased the taxpayers costs, I do not care to listen to their lies, false justifications distortions over the reality. The reality is that innocent people do suffer too often as a result of the alcoholic drunks and they the drunks wrongfully continue to bring a vast amount of pain, suffering to others. Drunk drivers hurt others.. There’s just no cure for drunks except Jesus. I bet he’s a repeat offender. There is no need to send it to court. Merely Ban the idiot from driving for the next 100 years and throw him in jail for five years. If proven to be impaired, the driver will be without insurance. they also will sue him to recover their losses, garnish his wages and put a lien on his house and anything else he owns. But he or she will continue likely to drink and drive. Alcoholism is not just too often a supposed sickness but it is violence, and murder..
.
Now about the police rightfully going after drunks all year, not just mainly the car speeders.. Oh I forgot the police are too often drunks themselves, and drink and drive too.. Alcoholics do not need a reason or a season to get drunk, on the job or off the job, including many civil and public servants now too, for they do it all year. They also still need to be jailed, fired and not rather neglected.
.
We already know that the first alcoholic drink too can be deadly to an alcoholic next.. And Regular alcohol or marijuana use takes a worse toll on the teenage brain than thought . It seems that 70 percent of the adults drink alcohol in Canada too but 100 percent of them claim to be non alcoholics? civil and public servants included, and where do all of the many drunk drivers, alcoholics come from now too?
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality. It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians, civil and public servants still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…

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

Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and reasoning ability now as well..Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills…It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets.. if the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too. DRUNK DRIVING KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY .

.

Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that speeding and neglect the drunk drivers firstly? “An Australian study estimates that about half of all traffic accidents in Australia may be due to road rage and most of the others related to alcohol, impaired driving and yet the police falsely tend to pursue revenue generating speeding traffic tickets still and why? Road rage is a relatively serious act; it can be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an endangerment of other’s personal well being, security. Women tend to be a higher risk for drunk driving than men. Why you might ask? It is due to the fact that women tend to have more passengers in the car or are more likely to be distracted or have small children present. Men are more likely to be driving alone or less distracted by what is going on around them
.
Canadians are spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year self-medicating their insomnia with alcohol, a study suggests alcohol has a very negative effect on your sleep. It deprives you of any of the deep stages of sleep“We were very surprised to see that so many people use alcohol as a way to promote sleep, particularly because it has more detrimental than beneficial effects on sleep,” Overall, eight per cent of the sample reported using alcohol as a sleep aid. Among people with insomnia, 28 per cent reported self-medicating with alcohol. “We know insomnia is a very prevalent problem, it has a very negative impact on people’s quality of SLEEP: it’s 10 times more costly not to treat insomnia because of its impact on absenteeism from work and reduced productivity than it is to treat it, why aren’t we treating it more often?” Part of the problem is that so few people seek help. Now some people take sleeping pills, that can also affect their brain cells negatively “but there are many more who self-medicate with over-the-counter products or, worse, with alcohol.” The money spent on the use of booze as a sleep aid far exceeds costs associated with visits to doctors and the use of prescription pills and over-the-counter products from antihistamines to herbal teas.

And alcohol is a “major” contributor to cancer deaths in the United States, even when consumed in small amounts. ‘The risk of developing breast cancer from drinking even small amounts of alcohol is being ignored by women with thousands now needlessly dying every year. Less than two drinks a day can increase the risk of developing cancer, doctors have warned, after finding that even moderate consumption was linked to almost a third of alcohol-related cancers.
.
The majority of deaths due to alcohol consumption seemed to occur among people who consumed more than three alcoholic drinks a day, but those who consumed 1.5 beverages daily may account for up to a third of those deaths, the researchers found

Leaders who boast now of their consuming alcoholic beverages are encouraging others to next become alcoholics, the teenagers too… what a bad example of their leadership skills too.

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Gal. 5:19-26).

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Inhibitions are the first to be suppressed when alcohol is consumed, which results in talking more, becoming disorderly and acting unwisely. Time is the only way to rid the body of alcohol after it has been consumed—approximately one hour per ounce of alcohol.

Drunkenness (and/or alcoholism) is a very serious problem in our society. The statistics associated with drinking alcohol are both alarming and disturbing, especially from a Christian point of view:
.
It is apparent that a wide variety of temporal problems stem from drinking alcohol, as just shown. The above cited dangers and sufferings for the drunk, however, are inconsequential and almost not even worth mentioning compared to the greatest danger in the entire universe—that of being thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, which is forever.
.
Furthermore, there is no such thing as a Christian alcoholic since drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God.
.
Jesus similarly taught about drunkenness:
But suppose the servant says to himself, “My master is taking a long time in coming,” and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers (Luke 12:45, 46).
.
The physical dangers of alcohol consumption include:
● Liver damage especially, but also brain, heart, bone marrow and gastrointestinal tract. Such can lead to cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, cirrhosis, nerve problems, etc. When the liver is affected nutrition is also adversely impacted which will hurt the entire body.
● Becoming overweight. One glass of wine daily can add 10 pounds a year to your weight.;

Four More Facts About Drunkenness
(1) It leads to debauchery:
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18).
(2) It brings woe, sorrow, strife, complaints, needless bruises and bloodshot eyes:
Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things. You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging. “They hit me,” you will say, “but I’m not hurt! They beat me, but I don’t feel it! When will I wake up so I can find another drink?” (Prov. 23:29-35)
(3) It reveals those who do get drunk as unwise:
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise (Prov. 20:1).
(4) It disqualifies a person from spiritual leadership:

(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

.

1 Tim 3:2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation {but} must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect {and} temperate {and} self-controlled ( Sober) ; [he must be] sensible {and} well behaved {and} dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable {and} qualified teacher,

.
Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain (Titus 1:7).
.
Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. They have harps and lyres at their banquets, tambourines and flutes and wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD, no respect for the work of his hands (Isa. 5:11,12).
.
Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Rom. 13:13,14).
.
It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall (Rom. 14:21).
.

(1 Cor 11:28 KJV) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

.

(Prov 3:33 KJV) The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

.

Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough,

Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law

Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

Taking a Nazarite vow makes one a true Nazarite. A Nazarite should also abstain from strong drink (wine containing alcohol). It is possible for Jesus to have been a Nazarite, due to the fact that he did abstain from drinking strong drink (wine containing alcohol). , which he would have to do in order to keep an Nazarite vow and he also would be not to put a razor to his head. Do Jesus would have long hair. then Elizabeth, John the Baptist’s mother was cautioned by an angel, as was Samson’s mother told to abstain from certain dietary no-no’s namely strong fermented grape juice and unclean meats. During the Jewish wedding, He Jesus had turned water into wine (pure grape juice-without fermentation). Yes we can be assured the Jesus still never ever consumed any alcohol even if Jesus did make the best wine in those days but it was a pure fresh grape juice , non alcoholic, it was unfermented,.

.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Ephesians 5: And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

.. the latest studies show you can get almost all the same benefits from grape juice. The reason Purple grape juice contains the same powerful disease fighting antioxidants, called flavonoids, that are believed to give wine many of its heart friendly benefits. .. but watch the sugar content or your juice supplier or you might get diabetes.. It seems that Jesus and the Apostles knew the benefits of grape juice, when they drank new wine, the unfermented wine..

Lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol or an unhealthy diet are linked to nearly half of Britain’s cancer cases,

AS A SENIOR I HAVE DEFINATELY NOTICED THAT MOST PEOPLE CARE TO READ UP ON HEALTH CARE ONLY WHEN THEY ARE REALLY SICK.. AND NOT BEFORE… NOW THAT IS REALLY SAD.   https://stayinhealth.wordpress.com/2008/11/21/anti-suicide-watch/

.

Lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol or an unhealthy diet are linked to nearly half of Britain’s cancer cases, a study claimed recently.

These “preventable” cancers account for 45 percent of all cancers in men and 40 percent of cancers in women, according to Cancer Research UK — more than 100,000 cases a year. The authors claim the study is the most comprehensive ever written on the subject. Many people believe cancer is down to fate or ?in the genes? and that it is the luck of the draw whether they get it,”   Looking at all the evidence, it’s clear that around 40 percent of all cancers are caused by things we mostly have the power to change.”

Smoking is by far the habit that increases cancer risk the most, causing 23 percent of all cancers in men and 15.6 percent of cases in women — 60,800 cases a year in total, according to the study. For men, lack of fruit and vegetables — linked to 6.1 percent of cases — was the second most important factor, followed by work conditions such as whether they were exposed to asbestos (4.9 percent of cancers). For women, the second biggest factor was obesity, linked to 6.9 percent of cases. “We didn’t expect to find that eating fruit and vegetables would prove to be so important in protecting men against cancer,”   “And among women we didn’t expect being overweight to have a greater effect than alcohol.” Alcohol was blamed by the study for 3.3 percent of female cancers — fewer cases than those blamed on sunbeds (3.6 percent). Dr Harpal Kumar, Cancer Research UK’s chief executive said. “But this study shows that healthy habits can significantly stack the odds in our favour.”

Danger – High Sodium Diets Hazardous to Health

 

According to a recent study, excess consumption of salt is linked to diseases like, hypertension, osteoporosis, kidney damage and stomach cancer etc. Hence high sodium diets are highly dangerous to the health, especially to heart.  The dietary guidelines recommend less than 2,300 mg intake of sodium per day. Americans do not pay heed to the same and eat an average of 3,436 mg every day.  Maximum sodium intake comes from the processed foods like cheeses, sliced meats, sauces and French fries, etc. Sauces and spreads can contain salt to the extent of 1,283 mg of salt per 100 grams. Foods that were once frozen and canned are full of sodium.  Dr. Marc Schweiger, director of Cardiac Catheterization/Research in the Division of Cardiology at Baystate Medical Center, says, “Although salt is found in many foods, maintaining a low-sodium diet will benefit your long-term health in a variety of ways”.

Sugary soft drinks increase pancreas cancer risk

“We know that sugar-sweetened beverages are cause-and-effect for obesity and diabetes,” “We just have to stop drinking sugary beverages,” Those beverages include soda pop, energy and sports drinks as well as fruit beverages, sweetened iced teas and homemade sugary drinks like frescas. “It’s liquid candy,” “Canadians are often unaware of how much sugar they’re consuming in beverage form. And the more you drink, the higher your risk is of these adverse health effects,” Sugary drinks are the main source of added sugars in the Canadian diet, said Lesley James, a health policy analyst at the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “There’s no intrinsic health value to it. There’s plenty of replacements. This is an easy problem to fix. “There’s no intrinsic health value to it. There’s plenty of replacements. This is an easy problem to fix. .Now a new study, holds sugary drinks responsible for the death of 1,600 Canadians annually..

.

A study found that diabetes induced by excessive consumption of sugary beverages was responsible for more than 70 per cent of those deaths, with cardiovascular disease and cancer trailing behind at 25 per cent and four per cent respectively.

.

Drinking two or more soft drinks per week nearly doubles a person’s risk of developing pancreatic cancer, says a new study released Monday that followed over 60,000 people for a period of 14 years.  http://toronto.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100208/softdrink_pancreatic_100208/20100208/?hub=TorontoNewHome
.

Researchers examined the risks associated with those who drink sugar-sweetened carbonated drinks, versus those who don’t consume these beverages.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer, and only 5 per cent of people who are diagnosed are known to survive five years later, according to the American Cancer Society. About 3,900 Canadians were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. Globally, that number is about 230,000.

“The high levels of sugar in soft drinks may be increasing the level of insulin in the body, which we think contributes to pancreatic cancer cell growth,” lead researcher Mark Pereira of the University of Minnesota said in a statement. Insulin helps the body metabolize sugar, and is produced in the pancreas.

Pereira and his colleagues followed 60,524 men and women in Singapore for 14 years. Over that period, researchers found:

  • 140 of the volunteers developed pancreatic cancer.
  • An 87 per cent higher risk of developing cancer for those who drank two or more soft drinks per week.
  • No link found between drinking fruit juice and developing pancreatic cancer.

Pereira says the findings would apply to western countries as well.

“Singapore is a wealthy country with excellent healthcare. Favourite pastimes are eating and shopping, so the findings should apply to other western countries,” he said.

He points out that while sugar may be to blame, those who drink sugar-sweetened soda often have other poor health habits.

Jennifer Sygo, a nutritionist with the Cleveland Clinic, says there isn’t the same level of research available for sugar as there is for salt. But she points out guidelines by the American Heart Association, which recommends:

  • Women should not consume more than 25 grams of added sugar a day (6.5 teaspoons);
  • Men should not consume more than 38 grams of added sugar a day (9.5 teaspoons).

Just by cutting sugar intake by half, or even one-third, it would make a big difference. For those who just need their sugar fix, many  recommend  a cup of juice a day, then water or a Perrier if you need some carbonation.

.

Occasional sweets are OK. But it’s foods like fruits, vegetables, cereals, breads, rice, and other grains that give your body the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients that it needs. It doesn’t matter what disease we are talking about, whether we are talking about a common cold or about cardiovascular disease, or cancer or osteoporosis, the root is always going to be at the cellular and molecular level, and more often than not insulin is going to have its hand in it, if not totally controlling it. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0846/is_8_22/ai_98594272/

The health dangers which ingesting sugar on an habitual basis creates are certain. Simple sugars have been observed to aggravate asthma, move mood swings, provoke personality changes, muster mental illness, nourish nervous disorders, deliver diabetes, hurry heart disease, grow gallstones, hasten hypertension, and add arthritis.

The list of health problems associated with sugar is quite lengthy and growing by the year. Some generalities include the following:

  • depression
  • mood swings
  • irritability
  • hyperactivity
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • mineral deficiencies
  • adrenal gland depletion
  • hypoglycemia
  • candida overgrowth
  • increased cholesterol levels
  • chronic fatigue

Then we get into the more serious diseases and disorders, as cancers, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Sugar, even in small amounts, suppresses the immune system making it easier to succumb to the various ailments. It should be noted though that there is a very significant difference between white refined sugar and naturally occurring complex sugars found in whole foods.

 .

Here again is a list of ways sugar can affect your health:

  • Sugar can suppress the immune system.
  • Sugar can upset the body’s mineral balance.
  • Sugar can contribute to hyperactivity, anxiety, depression, concentration difficulties, and crankiness in children.
  • Sugar can produce a significant rise in triglycerides.
  • Sugar can cause drowsiness and decreased activity in children.
  • Sugar can reduce helpful high density cholesterol (HDLs).
  • Sugar can promote an elevation of harmful cholesterol (LDLs).

  • Sugar can produce an acidic stomach.
  • Sugar can raise adrenaline levels in children.
  • Sugar can lead to periodontal disease.
  • Sugar can speed the aging process, causing wrinkles and grey hair.
  • Sugar can increase total cholesterol.
  • Sugar can contribute to weight gain and obesity.

  • Sugar can cause atherosclerosis.
  • Sugar can compromise the lining of the capillaries.
  • Sugar can cause liver cells to divide, increasing the size of the liver.
  • Sugar can increase the amount of fat in the liver.
  • Sugar can increase kidney size and produce pathological changes in the kidney.
  • Sugar can cause depression.
  • Sugar can increase the body’s fluid retention.
  • Sugar can cause hormonal imbalance.
  • Sugar can cause hypertension.
  • Sugar can cause headaches, including migraines.
  • Sugar can cause an increase in delta, alpha and theta brain waves, which can alter the mind’s ability to think clearly.
  • Sugar can increase blood platelet adhesiveness which increases risk of blood clots and strokes.
  • Sugar can increase insulin responses in those consuming high-sugar diets compared to low sugar diets.
  • Sugar increases bacterial fermentation in the colon.

To be sure, sugar is needed by the body for energy. However, far too many people are getting too much of a good thing – way too much.

Excessive sugar consumption is the major cause of an imbalance of all minerals especially:

  • calcium
  • magnesium
  • manganese
  • chromium
  • zinc
  • copper
  • cobalt (necessary for vitamin B12)
  • chromium (together with insulin, stimulates cells to absorb and metabolize sugar)

This imbalance leads to degenerative diseases including heart disease, osteoporosis, some anemias, and diabetes Studies have shown that individuals who continued on a high fiber diet for several months showed increased normalization of blood sugar levels. High fiber diets also lessen the sugar in the urine, and lowers fasting blood sugar levels and medication requirements.

Diets which include 20-35 grams of fiber per day is the ideal amount. Good sources of fiber are the following:

  • dry or cooked oat bran
  • cooked oatmeal
  • black-eyed peas
  • kidney or pinto beans
  • split peas
  • butter beans
  • lentils
  • fresh peas
  • baked potatoes with skins
  • brussels sprouts
  • corn
  • zucchini
  • prunes
  • apricots
  • broccoli

.

Just when we got the hang of baking with applesauce instead of oil and forgoing Chips Ahoy for SnackWell’s, the diet gurus throw us another curveball: Forget counting fat grams, they say. The real villain is sugar!

According to a slew of recent diet books, it’s sugar, not fat, that causes chronic overeating and adds extra pounds that wont budge. Their solution: Slash sugar from the diet completely.

Give wonderful, delicious sugar the boot (gulp) forever? We couldn’t bear it. So we asked leading nutrition experts to give it to us straight, Before you consider dumping your Twizzlers or denying yourself dessert, find out what the experts say about the truth–and the hype–when it comes to the sweet stuff.

Sugar Myth #1: You should eliminate all sugar from your diet.

First, a quick and painless science lesson: Sugars, aka carbohydrates, are made of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Individually, these strings of molecules are called monosaccharides, which include sugars such as fructose (found in fruit). Link two sets of molecules together and you have disaccharides, such as sucrose (table sugar) and lactose (the sugar found in milk). Combine a whole bunch of units, producing an even more complex molecule, and you’ve got starches and fiber.

And no matter what form you eat–from Gummi Bears to Wheaties–carbs contain 4 calories per gram, break down to simple sugars during digestion (except for fiber, which is indigestible) and are either used for immediate energy or stored for later. In other words, you need sugars in your diet to keep your body running. Most should come in the form of nutrient-rich starches like whole grains and cereals. You should also eat plenty of fruits, vegetables and lowfat dairy products–which contain sugars, but also valuable vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting chemicals.

Hospital deaths account for half of deaths annually

   

 Now as you and your loved ones get older you too will spend more time in Doctor’s offices, Hospitals, and convalescent, old age homes and will have wished that you had done something more about it all before too..
 
ONE OFTEN HEARS A CONCERNS FROM PATIENTS AND RELATED FAMILY MEMBERS WHETHER THEY SHOULD TRUST EVERYTHING THE ONLY HUMAN AND STILL NEED TO BE SUPERVISED DOCTORS, NURSES, HOSPITAL MANAGERS SAY OR PROMISES THEY WILL DO AND THE ANSWER IS NO CAUSE PEOPLE LIE AND MAKE PROMISES THAT OTHERS DO NOT KEEP. SOME PEOPLE RESPOND THAT THAT IS TOO MUCH WORK? WELL IF YOU REALLY DO WANT TO INSURE ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS  YOU STILL DO HAVE TO MAINTAIN A CONTINUAL SURVEILLANCE OF THE MEDICAL TREATMENTS, SERVICES.  
 
How to get better medical services overall? Well the wheel that makes the most noise seems to get the most grease still too..
 
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.
HOSPITALS are filled with infection-causing bacteria that cannot be found anywhere else. Hospitals, which often house very large numbers of sick people, are the ideal breeding environment for the sometimes deadly bugs. Hospital patients generally have a lower level of immunity and offer little or no resistance to them. The hospital staff, due to constant exposure to the bugs, are fairly immune to them, but may pass them on to patients by touching them or their food, bedding, clothing, or medications.* Contrary to common belief, hospitals are among the most contaminated places in the world. In fact  it does not take much dirt to become a breeding place for billions of deadly infectious bacteria.
* Doctors can be the worst transmitters of disease in hospitals. Most doctors do not wash their hands except before an operation, when they wear sterilized gloves and gowns anyway. They may sometimes touch many dozens of patients within several hours, one after the other, without washing their hands even once. Even the doctor’s white gown is not as clean as it looks. It is only clean if it is washed every single day, which rarely happens. .
* Bed sheets may be clean, but mattresses and pillows are not. The chance of being infected by bugs living in them is 1 in 20.
* A hospital patient may receive up to 12 different kinds of medication, all of which produce side effects, SOME  that can lead to serious complications and even death. AND SOME MEDICATIONS GIVEN ARE GIVEN IN ERROR AS WELL
* NOT SURPRISING TO MANY PERSONS hospitals PATIENTS OFTEN  are suffering from malnutrition due to a poor hospital diet OR BUDGET CONSTRAINTS. Malnutrition, even starvation was found to be the major cause of death among older people in hospitals.
Add the toxic side effects of the drugs, the presence of deadly bugs, as well as the stress and anxiety that accompany an illness and a stay in a hospital, and a poorly nourished elderly person NOW EVEN has very little chance of surviving
Anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals work in different ways by providing nutrients which control the metabolism rate and the hormone levels within our bodies. By keeping these two things stable we can provide a better mechanism to cope with stress and anxiety inducing situations. Most of the recommended anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals can be found in the foods that we eat and can simply be attained by eating a healthy and balanced diet covering all the major food groups. And that is why eating proper foods is important.

-I have often seen it myself, too many nurses and doctors wrongfully in no hurry to practically  help the really sick persons. Now some of these clearly bad persons  who still cannot face the negative reality about themselves, the ongoing especially bad nurses and doctors, lie and try to divert my  truth by saying I hate doctors and nurses, so well let me make it very clear I do rightfully hate all bad, pretentious, lazy, no good doctors and nurses who are not doing their jobs properly and  are causing other people to continue to suffer   as a result.. and they should always be fired ASAP.. Hospital administrators included. Is that clear enough for them now? That includes now also all bad cops, bad politicians, bad church pastors now  too..  http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/even-many-doctors-are-mainly-selfish-self-centered-want-to-get-rich-fast-too/
 – MANY PATIENTS WANT THEIR medicine delivered regularly daily at the same time and now  it seems to fluctuate through out different times of the day. they thus unnecessarily do   worry about missing their medicine.. and for them the lack of consistency in a patient having now having a more a regular Nurse is an important issue.. a new nurse for them now  almost everyday explains the medication delivery problems that still occur too often as well.. And hiring clearly ignoramuses,  fools, as workers, counselors, cause they are cheap, inexpensive now is not doing a great service to anyone, is not a real, valid help for the elderly too
– Medicating to death elderly persons WITH ERROR PRONE PILL PUSHING DOCTORS AND NURSES” and/or “starving them now to death BY NOT PROPERLY FEEDING THEM”, THE MOST COMMON APPROACHES I myself have often have seen now ARE NOT THE  VIABLE, EFFECTIVE, BENEFICIAL, COST EFFECTIVE  APPROACHES  NOR ARE THEY APPRECIATED, HELPFUL, BUT STILL ARE RATHER AN IMMORAL APPROACH. 
-Elderly persons need more special care cause they do tend to lack  the basic vitamins found in our common foods that help also to reduce one’s personal stress and anxiety.. for a hungry persons tends to be continually stressed and anxious and also do often   manifest  depression as well.. and what the classic treatment for depression is time, healing, by giving them proper nourishment, and proper rest and sleep.. in this case supplemented by proper pain killers, not improper pain killers  and/or merely  given proper sleeping pills too.   It seems that appropriate medication given by a face  mask if done immediately can alleviate further his panic and related breathing difficulties.. not just sleeping pills, or good food.. Now if you were also real , caring decent ministers in the federal government, then you and your provincial counterparts would supplement additional revenue to feed the elderly patients, who are being starved even murdered undeniably in old age homes, convalescent homes, hospitals in Canada, not just in 3rd world countries..
-Most everyone can realize that you really cannot separate the body, soul and sprit, and that our physical health and related healings is also effected also by our self worth, stress, anxiety but doctors and Hospitals want to stay mainly within the direct medical areas of pills, surgeries.. and tend not to use beneficial depression counselors as well.. As a result some sick people definitely would now have healed quicker had their root personal problems also been looked at and proper counseling given..
 – Clearly only fools cannot see that there is still very  much that can be done to improve the management, delivery of both our health care system and also the care of the elderly, persons too.

 Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.

 ..  It is really unacceptable and  still unbelievable that of all people the medical personnel. medical support staff, they too often still  do not take their jobs seriously  enough and they are the main cause of many persons hospital deaths. What are you doing good about it? in reality?
Now what are you all now really doing about many people suffering in your  Hospitals unnecessarily these days too due to the lack of competent staff? Actions speak louder over mere words.
 It is really really unacceptable that Personal Cleanliness in Hospitals and Hospital food isn’t always that great still too.. It is fact I have seen it the actual quality of food varies also from one hospital to another even
 
A report released 10/26/09 by Thomson Reuters, parent company of the Reuters news service, stated that   the current U.S. health system wastes  in a year, one-third of the current healthcare expenditure. The report cites the following as sources of wasteful spending:

Overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice lawsuits (Pennsylvania State University estimates that as much as 91 percent of our nation’s healthcare expenditures are related to defensive medicine);
Signifcant Fraud  in Medicare claims  ;
Administrative inefficiency and redundant paperwork;
Medical mistakes;
Preventable conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes

A  doctor is concerned that Manitoba labs are putting patients in danger , the province is now conducting an external review into the matter.  Pediatric pathologist Dr. David Grynspan says he’s noticed problems at provincial labs for the past two years. Last month, he submitted a 20-page report to the province which outlined concerns about heavy workloads, lack of accountability and some senior managers over-billing for work. Grynspan says those factors compromise patient safety. He says staffing levels may be to blame. Currently there are eight vacancies in the pathology department out of 46 positions. Grynspan says his report outlines one case where a patient’s samples were misdiagnosed.  Tory health critic Myrna Driedger says the province’s external review led by Winnipeg doctor Sharon McDonald won’t be objective.  “I think we need a totally independent external review and an auditor on that committee to look into these allegations,” says Driedger.  Arlene Wilgosh, the board chair for Diagnostic Services Manitoba, the group which oversees the province’s public labs says McDonald is bringing in a pathologist from outside the province, along with an independent labour lawyer to help in the external review.  Grynspan says he doesn’t agree with the review process and would like to see a completely external auditor do a thorough investigation of the pathology department.  http://winnipeg.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20091211/wpg_pathology_091211/20091211/?hub=WinnipegHome

Quebec health officials  reported on Nov 28, 2009 a very insignificant drop in hospital-acquired Clostridium difficile illnesses, shit disease,  which causes serious abdominal cramping , diarrhea, and many deaths.. The number of cases fell to 4.3 cases in 10,000 from five cases. One case is still one too many now.. Good Medical, Hospital hygiene  is still essential to  battles C. difficile. The Quebec government too still  has a long way to go to dealing with this adequately as well
 
Study shows sharing a hospital room increases your risk of picking up infections  The Canadian Press –  TORONTO – A new study says sharing a hospital room increases your risk of picking up an infection during your stay.  The study, by researchers from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., shows that each new roommate raises your infection risk by about 10 per cent. Senior author Dr. Dick Zoutman says the findings suggest single-room hospital designs would be cheaper to build in the long run, because they would lower rates of costly hospital-acquired infections. The authors looked at rates of three common hospital infections among patients admitted to a southeastern Ontario hospital during a 4 1/2 year period ending in 2005. Previous studies have shown that rates of hospital infections are higher in multi-bed settings than when patients are housed one to a room. But few studies have actually looked at whether the number of roommates you have in hospital increases your risk of developing an infection like C. difficile or drug-resistant Staph aureus.

Visitor restrictions in place at Trenton and Belleville hospitals – ‎Dec 31, 2009‎ Trenton Memorial Hospital’s inpatient unit is closed to visitors following an outbreak of the Norovirus.  Quinte Health Care (QHC) announced the closure following a number of patients contracting a gastrointestinal illness , the Norovirus, on Wednesday, Dec. 30. Belleville General Hospital’s Quinte 6 ward is also closed due to the same gastrointestinal illness.  The Norovirus is highly contagious with symptoms including diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Increased infection control procedures and visitor restrictions have been put in place..  Noroviruses are found in the stool or vomit of infected people. People can become infected with the virus in several ways, including: People are reminded not to visit patients at any QHC site if they are sick. Visitors must wash their hands upon entering and leaving the unit and they should not use the patient’s washrooms or kitchens, rather they should go elsewhere.. Norovirus is also called viral gastroenteritis, food poisoning, and calicivirus. Noroviruses and Salmonella are a leading cause of foodborne illness outbreaks. Norovirus affects people of all ages.  Outbreaks of norovirus infection also often occur in closed or semi-closed communities, such as long-term care facilities, overnight camps, hospitals, prisons, dormitories, and cruise ships where the infection spreads very rapidly by either person-to-person transmission or through contaminated food.  Many Norovirus outbreaks have been traced to food that was handled by the  infected person. Norovirus is rapidly inactivated by sufficient heating and by chlorine-based disinfectants, but the virus is less susceptible to alcohols and detergents   

QHC OUTBREAK:The highly contagious noro-virus is spreading to other hospitals. CKWS

Northumberland News – Belleville Intelligencer

 Hospital, medical administrators should consider cheap, disposable, paper, clothing for  all medical staff seriously!!! and save money on costs of medical diseases not being spread..

 
NOW WE HAVE ALL THE MEDICAL EXPERTS WARNING US ALL about the new diseases that are resistant to antibiotics, when the basic reality is that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure HERE TOO, and that applies basically  to the too common shit disease, the brown plaque,  and the common dirty toilet utensils found in bathrooms, patient rooms, hospitals and NURSING HOMES  as well..
 
OTTAWA – Ottawa-area hospitals are seeing a growing number of sick people   linked to the Norovirus, a highly contagious stomach bug, mostly related to food poisonings, which causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and people can carry the virus before they develop symptoms and it can be passed easily to vulnerable Hospital patients. Closing a ward that is affected by the related diarrhea and vomiting is essential to limit the spread of the infection. The hospital-based patients with the symptoms are placed  in isolation, as are  the affected staff, as there is no specific treatment for the infection, so isolation is the only way to prevent it spreading. “Staff affected by diarrhea and vomiting will only return to work once they have been symptom-free for 48 hours. ” The basic only way to prevent it spreading is also to limit the number of people who come into contact with those who have been effected. Additional people who are sick are advised to stay home and avoid visiting crowded places such as schools, hospitals, daycare centres and nursing homes until at least 48 hours after their nausea or vomiting has passed. Hospital visitors are to make sure they wash their hands before and after visiting to prevent it from further spreading .  People have also been advised to avoid bringing young children to the hospital. My personal inspection of a local Montreal hospital  was that too many of the hand wash dispensers available  are empty and are not being refilled ASAP.
 
SHARING A BATHROOM WITH A SICK PERSON IS REALLY, REALLY DANGEROUS.. NOT JUST THE ROOM…
  
An elderly polish persons on the LGH geriatric hospital floor takes her clothes off, shits in bed, rambles, is incoherent.. and the medical staff say it is none of my business cause I am not her son or a Family member. But what here is what totally had surprised me.. when her son and nephew, nieces came to see her, she was totally coherent, recognized them, spoke to them in English, and she asked them to be taken home.. when they left she went to be crazy person again.. she needs not just medical care bit a social worker to help her.
On this same LGH floor  most of the sick people are under the same personal strain, stress, not knowing where they will need  up next or what will happen to them next.. it is part of the pain and their personal reaction problem. No one AT THIS Hospital talks to them about this.. not the chaplains even or the social workers.. someone really does needs to counsel  them now compassionately as well.
 
Many staff have talked to now  also complain about the management conflict of personal interest, the Board of directors of this typical McGill Hospital are doctors, who tend to mainly insure more money is made available to other doctors and not to the working staff.
The Hospital clearing, staff’s concern about spreading shit diseases rather  has been reduced in the last week too  and they are doing less about it..
 
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.
 
I was yesterday talking to a Hospital staff directly and she too had said wise people can easily see, the staff included who the no good, lazy, inadequate, pretentious..
 
I had waited for weeks for the ombudsman to call me back at the LGH, and she did not, so I next called her.. she next had  promised to address these concerns.. seeing is believing. I await her results.
 
Vomiting bug closes three wards at Ulster Hospital  The hospital has asked visitors to wash their hands before and after visits Three wards at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald have been closed after an outbreak of a vomiting and diarrhoea bug amongst patients. The South Eastern Health Trust has said it has put extra cleaning measures in place.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/northern_ireland/8457397.stm  
 
Now any Hospital, seniors home saving money on staff, house cleaning, hygiene is a false saving   still. I really do think the Lakeshore General Hospital has learned the truth that doubling the nursing, medical and cleaning  staff pays off in the long run with less patients getting sick with infectious diseases and thus requiring less expensive medical care overall as a result too. No doubt about it all Hospitals can use and do need more staff and they next will save more money in the long run by patients nor rather getting more sicker..
Did they say that the infection was growing somewhere in the ER? Sounds like a late-night movie, but this is very serious. Who has the contract for cleaning, the same people who clean Maple Leaf Foods? Some serious Infections can be   airborne transmitted as well as the standard contact transmission, and no serious disease should be taken lightly by anyone.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2009/12/11/mb-bacterial-infection-er-hospital.html

The poor Doctor’s, medical staff and Hospital Hygiene is still the root cause of these very serious sickness that does  NEXT LEADS TO A SIGNIFICANT EXPONENTIAL  ESCALATION OF THE MEDICAL RELATED HOSPITAL COSTS NOW TOO. YES THE HOSPITALS ARE GUILTY OF NOW SAVING MONEY IN THE WRONG PLACES.
 
Before 2007, Canadian hospitals OUTSIDE OF Quebec were not required to publicly report their in-hospital death rates.  The public release would force hospital officials to examine their internal practices and improve patient care. Reporting rates to the public allows patients to examine potential risks at their local hospitals. It also forces hospitals – everyone from the hospital boards to the CEOs to the medical and nursing staff – to compare themselves to other institutions. Dr. David Austin, chief of staff at Markham Stouffville Hospital, said the 43-point drop in the institution’s mortality rate can largely be attributed to how the hospital has improved the way its staff appropriately document patient charts. The hospital has also brought in sub-specialist physicians, including hospitalists and intensivists, to deal with specific in-patient issues.  “If you have sepsis in hospital, you have a one in three chance of dying,”   ”If you are admitted to hospital for stroke, you have a one in five chance of dying. If you are admitted to hospital for heart attack, you have a one in 10 chance of dying.” Dr. Indra Pulcins, director of indicators and performance measurement at   Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/article/737552–hospital-death-rates-fall-in-new-era-of-disclosure 
 
 ”Hygiene” issues plague Quebec hospitals, and “hygiene” and “abuse” and “theft” issues plague assisted care facilities for the aged.”.
” it all comes down to not being able to clean properly due to a lack of staff, lazy staff, staff that don’t how to do their jobs well. they lack teaching. a superficial job gets done at best. it is very unsanitary. we should be using bleach to clean everything. the MGH is quite dirty esp. the stretchers and bathrooms. St Mary’s is the cleanest hospital I have ever seen. start cleaning people!”
” Hate to tell you all, but go to any hospital and you will find the same thing.  This isn’t limited to just Lakeshore, although people choose to pick on it. Trust me, the bigger places are just as bad – they just have better spin doctors.”
 ”my grandmother got it at the Jewish a few months ago. “
  
Hospital death rates and the related causes are  a major cause for concern still. As basic and common sense as it may seem all doctors and nurses, support staff on a daily, continual basis do  need also to ensure their own personal hygiene, cleanliness in medical care,  at all times too,  but they still for sure do not.. Imagine this also the Doctors, nurses, staff  wearing their own dirty clothes in Hospitals, many do not even use a lab coat or a clean uniform, scrubs anymore.. unsatisfactory hygiene.  Saving money on medical scrubs costs millions in sick patients.  No matter that some of the sickness, diseases are brought to the hospital by the patients themselves, it next must not be allowed to spread through the Hospital.. Many people get more sick as a result  in emergency rooms, hospitals .  This is Unacceptable. The spread of C. difficile infection,  Sepsis  disease  is at a greater risk in hospitals or other places such as nursing homes where there are many people in close contact with one another.    Hospital employees next having their own locked toilets, does not  help the overall problem now too.. it merely is a still unacceptable admission there exist a problem here.    

 Infectious Diseases in Clinical Practice:  Clostridium difficile-Associated Disease : “The Perfect Storm” Has Arrived and it falsely kills many because it is not talked about enough too.. There should be weekly mandatory reporting of all hospital acquired infections, not just the number of Hospital deaths Have you also not noticed that most hospital patients, many of who are too too sick to get up, they do not wash their hands before they eat Personnel Cleanliness in Hopsitals and even the Hospital food ain’t always that great still too..
-All medical staff must follow  the hospital antibiotic prescribing policy and taking care that broad spectrum antibiotics are not given unnecessarily .
-They all  must wear  disposable gloves and aprons, disposable lab coats,  scrubs, when treating sick patients and those  who have C. difficile infection and when dealing with,   or cleaning equipment that could be contaminated (eg bedpans).
-There must be regularly cleaning the hospital environment, including floors and surfaces, with disinfectant or detergent to get rid of spores, infections.
-They must insure the keeping seriously sick patients, especially those  who have C. difficile infection in isolation from those who don’t.
– Keeping clean and washing one’s hands often are also essential
 
Too many Canadian professionals, workers next  become too lax when they do think they have attained some kind of job security and fail to do their duties fully too, towards all others.    

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too. Cover-up, and denials are  a sad fact of life in Canada especially by our civil and public servants, including cops, doctors, hospitals, professionals, politicians, PM Stephen Harper as well..  and needless to say Doctors and Hospital have not kept  good figures  on the number of deaths even in Hospitals, and their causes too willingly too,   and what about those discharged persons who have died outside of the Hospital too? The causes of death are hard to determine especially when the governments have falsely cut back on the money available for autopsies Canada wide too.  All professionals, cops, Governments too sadly are known to hide bad things from the public.
 
“There’s so many opportunities for lapses, so even a small percentage of times when maybe things don’t happen as they should, can translate into a substantial number of cases.  It is unbelievable that in today’s society some medical staff no longer wear clean uniforms while working in Hospitals  but instead do wear their ordinary clothes , like I saw a nurse do so last week at the McGill Royal Victoria Hospital, and  this is unacceptable, it can encourage the spread of diseases, since these clothes cannot be simply removed and  replaced like a lab coat can be.” Further simple measures such as hand washing and adequately cleaning the equipment and rooms can seriously prevent the spread of infection that can lead to sepsis.  Some serious Infections can be also airborne transmitted as well as the standard contact transmission, and no serious disease should be taken lightly by anyone.  Most often the best Prevention includes Clean garments, and  regular  Hand washing. Soap and water is the most effective measure and Alcohol-based products may be used but are generally less effective since Alcohol has no effect on spores but mechanical action of hand-washing may help get rid of them. All hospital srufeces do need to be cleaned daily too. And  Eliminating or reducing the associated disease risk factors is also still essential.    http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/id_CdiffFAQ_HCP.html#10
 
“Another  simple change  would be to have hand-washing facilities easily available in the hospital cafeteria.  Here I have never seen a hand-washing sink in the eating area.  So, when people go to eat their meals in the cafeteria, they touch many door handles that are rich reservoirs for germs, they handle money, and then they sit down to eat, which is an open invitation to colonize their gut with resistant bacteria, which they can then easily pass on to someone else, such as a patient.  It seems such an obvious improvement to have a hand-washing sink in the eating area so that busy hospital personnel can try to keep themselves from becoming a link in the chain of infection.”
 
Not doing enough about C-dificile, or shit disease can lead to more serious medical-personal problems and can lead to the more serious  Sepsis problme which can seriously cause more personal harm,  result in extensive tissue damage, organ failure or death  to  the persons with minor infections, such as the flu or urinary tract infections, and to strike people with serious wounds, extremely weakened immune systems Early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis with antibiotics also improves the chances of recovery.  But all this take money and real effort now too. Hospital staff too often want to get paid but do not want to meet their full responsibility , and these type of persons should be immediately fired for the good of all too..
  
Clostridium difficile–associated disease (CDAD) is used to describe a constellation of illnesses caused by the toxins, A and B, produced by the C difficile bacillus  Factors such as predominant use of high risk antibiotics, reduction in house cleaning  staff, increased nursing workloads, antiquated facilities, and general changes in hospital populations (ie, increased number of immuno compromised, debilitated, and elderly patients) may also be contributing factors to resistance of treatments.  Clostridium difficile is an anaerobic, spore-forming, gram-positive bacillus.  The spores are resistant to many types of disinfectants, heat, and dryness and may persist for months on surfaces such as bed rails, commodes, electronic thermometers, stethoscopes, skin folds, and the hands of caregivers. The spores can cause disease in persons at high risk for CDAD. Three elements are required for prevention of CDAD: proper hand washing, contact isolation, and environmental measures.  Spores of C difficile tend to thrive on uncleaned hospital surfaces. For that reason, stringent daily cleaning of all hospital surfaces likely to be contaminated with feces is essential. A hypochlorite-based disinfectantor a 1:10 bleach solution is recommended.  Frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, call lights, television remote control devices, soap dispensers, faucets, bed rails, and telephones also require thorough daily cleaning. Hospital policies regarding dedicated equipment, dishes, linens, waste, and patient transport should be in place and enforced. Non disposable equipment such as glucose meters, cardiac monitors and electrocardiography and x-ray machines should be disinfected according to manufacturers’ guidelines. “It can be safely concluded that all of these treatments work some of the time, none work all of the time.” Hygiene care and vigilance are always still essential. Proper treatment and Prevention of dehydration is essential for patients with CDAD. Prevention is also the most important treatment.  – – Maria E. Pelleschi
 
Today, blood culture and culture techniques are the gold standard for detection of a medical infection.  The turnaround time for culture/blood culture is lengthy, ranging from 48 to 72 hours. As a result,  this can often be too late for many sick people if the disease has not been diagnosed even sooner.. or of it had not been prevented..
 
“My brother is currently a patient at UVA for the 5th week due to a severe case of sepsis. He already had his all his toes on both feet amputated along with part of his right foot. He will lose 3/4 of his index finger and some fingertips. We had never heard of sepsis before this. His PCP was treating him for a virus. He was going back to PCP for the 3rd or 4th time when he collaped in the doctors office. He was then transported to the ER where they diagnosised him. Only through the grace of GOD he is still with us. He has a long, long road to recovery ahead of him.”
 
Here is the the too often  sad unacceptable reality, news, result  complaining about any poor medical services, medical neglect, abuse, mistreatment of patients to doctors, nurses, administrators, ombudsman  too often is like talking to a brick wall.. they reaped their indifference, bad acts and sadly seem to have got used to their sins, errors, bad ways.. so now they even have to be fully exposed to all.In Montreal I have been to the English and French Hospitals and I can certainly say that the McGill run Hospitals provide some of the worst nursing, Doctor services as well.. the RVH, JGH, Lachine Hospital, and  Lakeshore General hospital included.. One rotten apple spoils the whole basket.. deal with it..  Doctors, Nurses, medical support staff  are human, they too sometimes try to get by with a minimal amount of personal effort, and so as result patients do not always get their proper medical care. A 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..
 
No one is immune to danger, or death, not even you, your loved ones now too. It can happen where you live.. AND IT DOES NOW TOO. It is not a pleasant site, sight, a person was alive and a few minutes later they are dead and next are being wheeled down the hall to the morgue, COVERED UP ALL IN A WHITE SHEET.. the nursing, support staff are clearly upset, the strain of helplessness gripping many of them too.. urine containers are still being left alone, allowed to be scattered on the floors in the patients rooms.. some how some of the medical personnel, support staff they  wrongfully still cannot believe that the fatal diseases are caused by poor hygiene.. after all they have been personally neglecting the hygiene aspect for a long time too.. 
   
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..  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.,  Now less than a hundred Canadians will die in one year due to car accidents, but thousands will die due to a hospital acquired infection? So why has not the Conservative government done too much here? they do not care about Canadian lives still? Ex-fire chief of London Ontario was jailed for child porn – Crime – and so should our health ministers be also jailed now too.. for their poor inactions..
 
And the  likely reason that roommates increase the risk of infection is that patients share a washroom. (The mantra in infection control is: One bum per toilet.) Another likely explanation involves inadequate handwashing by patients and health professionals alike; doctors and nurses sometimes don’t wash their hands between patient visits in a single room. in the meantime, there are things we can do: We should be cleaning our hands, and we should really scrutinize how we clean our hospitals.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/private-hospital-rooms-lower-risk-of-c-difficile/article1420448/ 
 
I am chronic believer of the “sit, wait, watch, see philosophy”.. and I like to sit and look as to what is really happening in police stations, hospitals, doctor’s offices, emergency clinics, government offices, churches too.. it is really an eye opener and a learning experience.. Now after being a half a century in Canadian Hospitals I thought I saw it all.. Until I sat this week visiting a person in a serious sick, troubled persons ward at the Pointe Claire, West island Hospital, Lake Shore General Hospital,    Pointe-Claire is a municipality located on the Island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada… and for the first time I also had no complaints… but praise for I really could not believe what I saw, the real extra effort that the medical, support staff gave to all the patients, some of them very elderly too. It is my personal observation, and that of my father that this Hospital does it’s best in dealing with sickness, infections. Now if all Hospital departments were like this.. it would be heavenly.  But a week later I found out the whole truth as to how they do provide a minimum of doctors, nurses services..
 
And the    Lakeshore Hospital battling superbug   MONTREAL – Lakeshore General Hospital posted a guard on its fourth floor west wing to limit visits to patients because of an outbreak of hospital-borne bacterial infections.Now this good hospital is already taking almost all the necessary precautions for cleanliness except it is forgetting to use rather disposable paper bed pans, and disposable paper urine containers, and as a result toilets   often remain contaminated, and I would suggest that  they do visit the LaSalle Hospital that now has successfully used them..  Let me be clear about it, Never mind the lies, spins, excuses too, One hospital death due to anyone’s bad habits, neglect is unacceptable,  one too many and all the time now too. Cleanliness is next to godliness especially in Hospitals, convalescent homes  and old ages homes now too. This neglect can open doctors and hospitals to serious rightful lawsuits too now over the death of any person.. let   also  the Quebec government now as well take proper actions here in all Hospitals too..
 
 
  ” Florence Nightingale had written rules on cleaning. Nurses need degrees and are too good to do this work now.
 ”Nurse” She’s spot on! Lazy cleaning staff- improperly supervised and trained. I recently had a “round” with management at the Bay Fairview, for the indecent ladies washroom on the 2nd floor. What is going on? Menial-type jobs, like cleaning, are contracted out to people who have no idea what sanitary conditions are. Most of us don’t live in pig-pens here in Canada, so we don’t want to see those conditions in public places. A hospital should “sparkle” and smell clean, for obvious reasons! and PS: I don’t go to The Bay anymore. It’s an insult! “

   Sepsis  last year resulted in about 30,587 hospitalizations and 9,320 deaths in Canadian hospitals excluding Quebec, In comparison, there were 30,542 hospitalizations for strokes in 2007-08, with some 6,423 deaths. Of the 49,220 hospitalizations for heart attacks, about 5,684 people died. in almost one-quarter of 2008-09 sepsis cases, patients were diagnosed after being admitted to hospital. Those who developed sepsis while in hospital were 56 per cent more likely to die than those diagnosed with sepsis before they were admitted to hospital. It is expected that the results for Quebec are just as bad if not worse.
 
Another  common way of becoming sepsis  is an oral/dental source such as a tooth infection..
 
Overuse of antibiotics  is building widespread resistance and threatening to halt vital medical treatments such as hip replacements, intensive care for premature babies and cancer therapies, health experts say. A 2002 survey that showed 60 percent of patients do not know that antibiotics do not work against viruses like flu and colds.” Patients often demand antibiotics,” she said. And doctors often think, she said, that giving in is a quicker way to deal with a demanding patients than persuading them otherwise.
 
 Many, many person still do die each year in Hospitals too from preventable medical errors ranging medical errors, drug overdoses to infections caught in the hospital. Exhausted, sleepiness, upset ,overwhelmed, stressed out medical staff   are far more likely to make an error. Teaching hospitals across the United States have moved to limit residents’ work weeks to 80 hours to reduce fatigue-related errors and what about those in Canada?
 
Mortality rates for Most Canadian hospitals are out and  the Ontario Waterloo Region has one of the best and the worst rates in the province. The Grand River Hospital out of one hundred and fifty hospitals in the province … it ranked 150 for mortality rates … the worst in the province. Unacceptable. Is it a reflection on the University of Waterloo now as well?
 
One death is one too many!!! Never mind the average statistics of death!! Canadian hospitals need  to reduce mortality rates, for severe infections are still prominent too… a new study found that nearly 10,000 patients died in hospital of sepsis in 2008,  a condition resulting from bad Hospital hygiene,  disinfection, House cleaning practices firstly. Now there is evidence that some hospital-acquired infections that lead to sepsis can be avoided by controlling the spread of infection. And while hospital standardized mortality may  appear to be decreasing overall in Canada, some unacceptable conditions, such as sepsis still remains to be dealt  with adequately, fully, immediately for reducing mortality in hospitals.  CIHI’s study shows that in 2008-2009, more than 30,500 patients were hospitalized with sepsis in Canada, not including Quebec. The study noted that just over 30 per cent of patients hospitalized with sepsis died, and that compared to 18.0 per cent for stroke patients and 9.1 per cent for heart attack patients. Studies have shown various factors such as early recognition and treatment can reduce deaths from sepsis. “There is lots of evidence that hospital-acquired infections that lead to sepsis can be prevented. Instituting the  best practices should be a priority for reducing sepsis and mortality rates,” Dr. Claudio Martin, a critical care physician at London Health Sciences Centre, At an Ontario health centre, a task force was created to adopt known best practices for early recognition and treatment on the centre’s wards and in the emergency room and developing cases on the ward have  picked up more quickly and related treatment started sooner . Not every Hospital cares to do this still because of the cost and bother in Canada. Unacceptable.
 
A poorly managed Hospital and personnel is still always rightfully unacceptable even if it is McGill. I have often been wondering why the Montreal McGill Hospitals tend to provide the basic , or pretentious services, it is cause the real doctors, professionals, self serving, greedy,  money hungry doctors  now are trying to make a buck in the private sector and are generally not available to all, even though Canada supposedly only has a fully public accessible Medicare system, and the Hospital directors who generally are doctors too go along with this too.. conflicting self interest
 
More than 9,300 hospital patients died of sepsis – a form of blood poisoning caused by infections – last year in Canada, new data reveal. Last year, there were 87,612 deaths in Canadian hospitals, excluding Quebec. Hospital deaths account for almost half of all mortality. Moreover, the number of sepsis cases has increased and the mortality rate has held steady over the past five years.  “Sepsis is one of the top causes of patient deaths in hospitals. It’s a big problem,” There has been a strong push in recent years to improve patient safety, particularly in hospitals. “It’s really not an easy problem to resolve,”  Sepsis can occur when a bacterial, fungal or viral infection moves into the bloodstream and attacks vital organs. While sepsis can develop from relatively minor infections, such as influenza or a urinary tract infection, it most often develops in people who have serious wounds or compromised immune systems, and in surgery patients with catheters.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/blood-poisoning-a-top-cause-of-death-in-hospitals/article1396660/
 
Blood poisonings, infection traced to ER 40 affected by outbreak at Seven Oaks General Hospital  12/12/2009 1:00  A bloodstream infection has affected 40 patients at Seven Oaks General Hospital — including two who have died. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority issued a news release late Friday afternoon, describing the situation at Seven Oaks as an outbreak in the emergency ward and asking anyone treated with intravenous medication and suffering flu-like symptoms to contact their physician. Dr. John Embil, the WRHA medical director of infection, prevention and control,  said his department became aware of the outbreak at the end of the summer when staff found a number of bloodstream infections linked to an organism known as Serrtatia marcescens.  Twenty patients were infected when Embil and hospital staff began tracking the source of the infection in late summer, and another 20 people have since been identified as also having the infection. Dr. Ricardo Lobato de Faria, the chief medical officer at Seven Oaks, said all but two of the 40 patients showed signs of the infection after they were admitted to the hospital following treatment in the emergency ward. Two others were treated in emergency and released but recalled when their blood work revealed the infection, he said.  Embil said officials’ detective work determined that the infection originated in Seven Oaks’ emergency ward but they’ve yet to learn what caused it in the first place.  http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/blood-infection-traced-to-er-79119197.html    
  
 
 It is always the same old problem, Doctors and medical staff continual indifference to the need of others, Hospital costs savings so the Doctors can get more money, even bad who Doctors fail to define the sicknesses soon enough. Law suits and the related bad publicity have been proven to be one of the most effective weapons in dealing with medical inadequacies.
 
 
 
Medical Errors are also still a  leading cause of Deaths. More and more people die from medical mistakes each year than from highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS.
 
And pharmaceutical drugs kill more people every year than are killed in traffic accidents. Many hospitalized patients suffered a serious adverse drug reaction (ADR)  and died as a result. The researchers found that over 75 per cent of these ADRs were dose-dependent, which suggests they were due to the inherent toxicity of the drugs rather than to allergic reactions. The researchers concluded that ADRs are now the fourth leading cause of death  after heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Any deaths   from  misdiagnosis of the ailment , deaths from unnecessary surgery;  from medication errors in hospitals;  deaths from other errors in hospitals;  deaths from infections in hospitals;  deaths from  adverse effects of medications, or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness, they  are all always still unacceptable!
 
And please do note this reality the biggest hospital complaint of really sick patients is the lack of competent nurses on duty 24 hours per day.. Hospitals provide babysitting services and not rather real medical care it seems too often.. wait till you get to the hospital and find out next firsthand what it is really like too..
 
It is stupidly amazing how many crooks, clearly bad persons, Doctors, Hospital adminstrators too,   are still so unrepentant that they do think that all they have to do is just lie some more, bully some more of their accusers and they too  will next get away with it.. well they can dream on but there is eventually a limit to the amount of lying, abuse many will take..
  The majority of news media main aim is to make more money, not rather to basically, really help the citizens. The news media likes to sell the good news, the positive spins, the sensational stories, interesting news rather than mainly dealing with real solutions to the real problems all citizens now often do face. For instance the news media too often does not state specially what is the unnecessary cause of so many hospitals deaths.. the critical items such as infection mostly due to shit diseases, poor hospital hygiene,  poor hospital managers, too often incompetent and under staffed medical personnel as well.. well I rightfully do tell the truth here too.
In 1982 I drove to Edmonton Alberta and sat directly in the Albertan Minister of Economic Development, and the Albertan Minister of Manpower, Career development, and I had asked them face to face what they were doing specially to diversify Alberta’s economy and to help to create more  jobs for Albertans.. but these useless twits still did did nothing, and they both lost their reelections, and their workers too had  let the party caucus decide what to do and so today  Alberta is in a real big big mess today.. with home prices a dropping,  home sales are going doing, many many people getting laid off, and their Alberta  government revenue is going down fast too. Alberta is in a big mess these days still too.. The Albertan politicians, leaders now  were another bunch of know it all who did not want to listen to any one else.. and such History repeats itself. 
 
Now what are we all now really doing about many people dying in all Hospitals unnecessarily these days too? Actions speak louder over mere words.. 
 
Less people do die at home these days, for it is the trend to go to the hospital when sick or dying these days too.
I had  contacted the Lakeshore General Hospital Ombudsman, but she was  still on Holidays for  WHILE too and so who really cares about the sick people’s complaints? IN FACT I HAD WRTITEN TO 3 McGill Hopsitals ombudsman and none of the results were fully satisfactory to date even..
 
  JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A report released Thursday by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Medical Examiner’s Commission revealed that common prescription drugs were responsible for more deaths in 2007 than common illegal drugs.“ The rate of deaths caused by prescription drugs is over three times as high as the rate of deaths caused by all illicit drugs combined,” said Director of the Office of Drug Control Bill Janes. Deaths involving the use of oxycodone, methadone, cocaine, alcohol, and heroin all rose in 2007, that according to the report.http://swampie.wordpress.com/2008/06/12/fdle-pharmaceuticals-kill-more-than-street-drugs/
This also offers a Canadian window into the state’s overwrought preoccupation with making money at all costs, disregarding the citizens concerns too. Sadly Like too many political parties it seems the citizens mainly do not count, their views or needs, desires. they only count on election days. I was once talking to deputy Minister Ken Kowalski of Alberta about this as to why and he replied cause in Alberta they do not pay the taxes. But rather the real reason is the too often lack of respect for the all of citizens still by our leaders, civil and public servants most political parties Canada wide.. Police, RCMP’s unacceptable, poor attitudes towards most of the citizens now as well
