Although Lavani claims the life expectancy went up under British rule because they brought vaccines for smallpox and quinine for malaria, the British also had 59 million people die in 40 famines (Doc #11). This all took place over about 200 years, while previously India had only recorded 18 famines happening over the 400 years prior to British rule (Doc #11). While the life expectancy in concerns to disease may have been dramatically raised, repetitive famines killed off many that had been saved from such diseases. Lavani also boasts of fine universities, but the literacy rate under British ruled India never exceed 16%, meaning that those fine universities were built simply for the few rich Indians the British needed to control the population (Doc #9). The British had no interest of educating the Indian population for any other purpose than gains, and cared not if the people were starving, so the British had a negative impact on the Indian
John Oliver’s Sugar - Satire Review “The Average American eats 22 teaspoons of sugar a day, 5 times the proper amount!” This is a quote from the host of “Last Week Tonight” John Oliver in his video over making producers include an ‘added sugar’ slot on product nutrition labels. Consumers should at least get to know what the food we eat contains. The producers are trying to avoid including the “added sugar” on their labels. Their reaction should make you question how much sugar they include in their products. John Oliver’s video on sugar is an effective form of satire because of its exaggerated proposal of a serious problem and the way he uses Ironies, Hyperboles and a Parody to get his point across.
Within the last 22 years, from 1991 to 2013, the prescriptions written by doctors for opioids have increased from 76 million to 207 million. Opioids are a drug class that were developed originally, to treat severe pain for people who are dying of cancer or other severe illnesses. This began when pharmaceutical companies assured the medical community that people would not become addicted to opioid pain relievers. As a result doctors began to prescribe opioids more frequently. There are different kinds of opioids.
"Every day, we are helping millions of patients manage chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes - and all of these conditions are made worse by smoking," said Larry Merlo, chief executive officer of CVS Caremark Corporation, in the announcement made last week. "Tobacco products have no place in a setting where health care is delivered." But if the goal really is to turn CVS into a broader health-care company, what about drugstore staples like candy, chips and soda - high-sodium, high-fat, and high-sugar foods? Is the decision an indicator of a more comprehensive change to come in goods supplied by our national chain drugstores? According to Higby, the odds are slim as long as pharmacies remain entities outside
Contiguously spread of infection within the biliary duct is also possible. Serum amylase rises within 6 to 12 hours of the onset of acute pancreatitis. Serum lipase rises within 4 to 8 hours of the onset of symptoms, peaks at 24 hours, and returns to normal within 8 to 14 days. Although our patient did consume alcohol few days before presentation, a negative alcohol screen and normal pancreatic enzymes on presentation make alcohol a less likely offender. Interestingly, since pancreatitis developed after patient tested positive for salmonella bacteremia, it seems the likely cause of pancreatitis.
In California alone, the number count of deaths from smoking has been increasing every single day and has not been going down at all.In reading a article I read that a Surgeon General stated that “ Approximately half of today’s 44.8 million smokers will die prematurely from smoking-related diseases.” Prop 56 will help California put the death toll lower than it is right now. The way Prop 56 will help save many lives is by adding a $2.00 increase in the tax revenue for a cigarette or anything that contain the ingredient of nicotine. When reading a map in Tobaccofreekids.com I saw that California was the 37th out of the 50 states that had the lowest taxes on cigarettes. If Proposition 56 is passed then California will be placed way higher than it already is at right now. As stated in the article made by Michael Hiltzik in the LA Times news website “The measure is expected to raise as much as $1.4 billion
“Eating for Health, Not Weight” by Dean Ornish talks about understanding how diets work. Ornish, an American physician, has written many books and articles, such as this one, on how a healthier lifestyle can help “slow, stop, or reverse the progression of early stage prostate cancer, as well as reverse the progression of Type 2 diabetes.” Founding the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, he uses the example of how his thirty-five year-long research program proved that people who ate mainly plant-based meals and engaged in moderate exercise had improved their health. His argument follows mainly on how some diets focus on weight loss instead of long-term condition. However, Ornish fails to realize that many of his strategies, although they may help prevent heart disease, causes other illnesses such as eating disorders.
C.Chocoalte can even help lower the chances of being at risk of having a stoke. 1.According to “Medicalnewstoday.com candian scientist carried out a study involving 44,489 people found that eating chocolate were 22 percent less likely to suffer a stroke than those who didn 't , and those who already had a stroke and regualry comsumed chocolate were 46% less likely to die from it.

Today, the global importance of the health condition is a range including goiter (enlarged thyroid), stillbirths, stunted growth, thyroid deficiency, and mental defects. China launched to eliminate iodine deficiency, with technical and financial assistance provided through the donor funded Iodine Deficiency Disorders Control Project. The cost and cost effectiveness of salt with iodine costs approximately 2 to 7 cents per kilogram or less than 5% of the retail price of salt in most countries. The impact by 1999, iodize salt was reaching 94% of the country, up from 80% in 1995 and salt quality had improved. The history of how China introduces iodized salt to prevent the multiple disabling disorders associated with iodine deficiencies represents one such program.
Lori Chordas claims in her viewpoint that the production of generic versions of prescription drugs cuts the price of medication notably. Brand names can cost from thirty to eighty percent more than generic versions of the same medication. More Americans are recognizing the savings associated with buying generic brands instead of brand name. Generic drugs made up sixty five percent of prescription drugs distributed in 200 according to IMS Health. Due to patent expiration, many brand name drugs are soon going to have generic forms.
Symphony Health Solutions, a data company that studies the pharmaceutical industry, found an 18 percent drop in that period.” One reason there is potential to curb the epidemic is a change in the way doctors think. The article mentioned in the 1990’s doctors thought that people should never have pain. It is possible that could have kick started the opioid drug crisis. Here is

To be within accepted calorie intake levels, use a shot glass to measure the nuts. TEA: While tea has become well known for its cancer-fighting antioxidants, it is also a great defense against LDL cholesterol levels. According to research conducted with the USDA, black tea has been shown to reduce blood lipids by up to 10% in only 3 weeks. BEANS: Researchers at Arizona State University Polytechnic found that adding ½ cup of beans to soup lowers total cholesterol, including LDL, by up to 8%.

Studies have shown that when we consume sugar, it’s equivalent to when someone does cocaine. Another study by Dr. Cantley has shown that sugar can help cancerous cells grow and multiply. Doctors recommend at most 100 grams of sugar a day to limit these harmful effects. After hearing this, I was stunned. Soon after I limited my sugar
As I read Overkill, I wasn 't surprised about unnecessary medical care, and it 's financial or physical harm. We see this first hand in the nursing field. The article mentioned in 2010, the Institute of Medicine issued a report that Medicine waste accounted for thirty percent of health-care spending, or seven hundred and fifty billion dollars a year, which is more than our entire nation 's budget for K-12 education (Gawande,2015). That doesn 't shock me, it infuriates me! I witnessed some of this waste while working in a nursing home.
