Vaccinations help reduce the risk of infections and contracting diseases by having the immune system produce antibodies that fight the disease without causing the disease. Getting a vaccine can help keep a disease from spreading by reducing the number of people who can catch the disease. If a portion of a community is vaccinated against a disease and an outbreak occurs, there is still some protection for the people who didn’t get vaccinated because it is contained. This is known as community immunity. Vaccination is not just for children.
Excluding drugs from their lives could be a productivity boost and improve their overall health. Many US employers require drug tests before being cleared to work therefore this request for drug testing isn’t more invasive than going through the job acceptance process. This focus on jobs could help slowly eliminate long term welfare users. It might also prevent people from starting recreational drug use because it means losing their welfare, which may give them housing or a nutrition plan. There are some tradeoffs to including a drug test for welfare recipients.
Major Quest Outline Name: Madison Underwood Thesis: Bacteria is becoming resistant to antibiotics and will eventually cause an apocalypse. Body: I. Understanding antibiotic resistance is vital in understanding the argument. A. In the passage, General Background: About Antibiotic Resistance, the author gives a description of antibiotic resistance saying, “antibiotic resistance occurs when an antibiotic has lost its ability to effectively control on kill bacteria growth; bacteria are resistance and continue to multiply.” The author is saying that antibiotic resistance takes place when an antibiotic can no longer kill the bacteria because the bacteria has grown stronger and continues to grow stronger.
Oral rehydration is generally the preferred method of treatment due to the fact that it allows the hosts response system to deal with the infection and it does not allow for the creation of ecological vacuums where the bacteria might re-emerge. Oral metronidazole or vancomycin are the preferred method of treatment only when symptoms are severe. Metronidazole is more desirable for treatment due the fact that it is less expensive, well tolerated by the body when administered for short periods and does not encourage resistant bacterial development. Intravenously administration of antibiotics has been found to be less effective than the oral administration route. This is due to the fact that intravenous administered antibiotic might not reach the site of infection.
Antibiotics are widely used throughout the world for agricultural, industrial, and medical purposes. The primary concern for the use of microbes is its growing resistance to common antibiotics released within the environment. Antibiotic resistant genes (ARG) have been prevalent in aquatic environments such as the public drinking water treatment system, source water, and tap water and multiple researchers have conducted tests to observe the effectiveness of the water treatment plants in the removal of harmful contaminants. While a This review aims to discuss the antibiotic resistance crisis in order to find solutions to combat the main source of selection pressure that causes antibiotic resistance to occur. Mutations provide a source for bacteria to become resistant within the environment.
If you get a vaccination, there is less of a chance to spreading it onto other people. Vaccinations can simply save lives. It gets the immune system stronger to prevent viruses to affect our body. Vaccines do not make the body sick. Although, they do put a tiny dose of the disease in the person to strengthen the immune system to prevent an attack of a stronger dose of the disease.
Vaccinations have benefited the U.S , and our health, as well as those we care about including us. They have prevented us from getting diseases, and have kept diseases from spreading. If we stop vaccinating we are at risk of an epidemic, that could have easily been controlled with A simple vaccine According to CDC, “Before long we would see epidemics of diseases that are nearly under control today”(Source 4). Vaccines have decreased the rates of many common diseases such as measles and mumps, drastically. In addition to vaccines preventing diseases and epidemics and controlling then, there are also many other benefits.
By controlling the virus, it means that it will stop the HIV virus from multiplying which means that there will be less HIV in your body. This gives time for the immune system to recover and even though there is still HIV in your body, the immune system is able to fight off the infections. (AIDS.gov
Another way to reduce drug abuse is by creating syringe exchange policies where users can take their dirty syringes and get clean ones in return. This not only decreases the disease transmission ("HIV/AIDS", 2018), it also lowers the stigma around drug use and provides a safe space where they feel welcome (Meyerson, 2017). Some may say that both of these interventions would just make drugs more accessible, therefore more predominant. However, research has shown that reducing stigma actually decreases the number of drug related incarcerations and overdoses (Villa). If we were to increase support around these individuals instead of passing judgement, we would see a significant difference in our
Our government has some regulations for how these should be disposed of by hospitals and individuals, but these are not enforced. Most of society is unaware that unused drugs should be returned to the pharmacy for proper disposal, but a lack of awareness contributes to this problem. The findings here contribute to the need of systematic change to how these drugs are produced, used, and disposed. Drug companies need to make these drugs with disposal in mind, government regulations and accountability of hospitals and individuals need to improve and water treatment facilities will need to address this contamination. The first two steps to reduce the contamination and the water treatment facilities address the rest of it.
This is so because there is a saying that “prevention is better than cure”. Primary prevention is the method of curbing the outbreak of diseases or injuries before they actually occur. This can be achieved by preventing exposure to hazardous diseases or injuries. This could also increase resistance to injuries or sickness even as one is exposed to it and staying away from unsafe and unhealthy conditions as these will help in keeping the African American community safe and free from getting sick and as such keep the little income they make in their pocket and not have to use for paying high healthcare cost. Reduce disabilities and not be faced with discriminatory violation the exist in the healthcare certain or the society as a whole (The Institute for Work & Health,
