TRAPS, which refers to tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated periodic syndrome, is a periodic fever syndrome inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. It stems from mutations in the TNFRSF1A gene that expresses the receptor of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α. A patient with TRAPS may present with prolonged episodes of fever attacks, abdominal pain, severe myalgia, and painful erythema on the trunk or extremities. Here we report a case of a 8-year-old male with febrile attacks occurring every 1-2 months and continued for 3-4 days. The patient experienced 40 ºC-fever attacks without chill.
It is predicted that legalization would reduce black markets and drug-related violence which would help law enforcement to work on other cases. Therefore cannabis should be legal in the U.S. because it would help improve the economy, decrease black markets and drug-related violence, and help treat medical conditions. Firstly,
I think that if it were to be legalized here in my state of Illinois, then there should be a limit on it, like there is with alcohol, for driving purposes. Obviously, marijuana stimulates the body by sending it into a relaxation mode and this could be dangerous depending on the dosage you use. So, I think that it would be beneficial to have some sort of testing device just to be sure we are keeping everyone safe. But in the long run, helping people with severe medical related conditions, being able to free up jail space, and bringing in a larger revenue to the states would benefit everyone. In my opinion, every state eventually is going to have marijuana legalized because I am sure that all of this information has been brought to their attention before, but this is just a time taking process as the population grows and they begin to see a huge change in the total United States
Blowing smoke; marijuana should be fully legalized The consumption and distribution of marijuana have been two very controversial subjects throughout the last century. Although some people may claim that the use of cannabis for recreational and medicinal purposes should be illegal due to safety, legalizing and decriminalizing marijuana would drastically reduce crime rates, help people suffering from chronic illnesses, and create a significantly higher amount of potential tax revenue to bolster the economic state of our nation. Many people argue that legalizing marijuana would encourage more people to smoke it. One cannot disregard that this may be true, though it does not necessarily have to be a bad thing. A main argument against the legalization of marijuana is the “slippery slope” argument.
Of notion, nicotine concentrates in fetus more than that of maternal levels . Additionally, the peak carboxyhemoglobin level and the amount of smoke inhaled are higher in waterpipe smoke as compared to cigarette smoke [16-18]. Nicotine smoking during pregnancy results in several harmful effects to the fetus such as low birth weight [19, 20], hypertension , asthma  and lung function abnormalities , retinal abnormalities , development of childhood leukemia  beside cognitive and behavioral disturbances . However, the effect of prenatal exposure to waterpipe smoking still needs further elucidation. We hypothesize here that in utero exposure to waterpipe smoking affects the development, suppresses
Survey forms were given 4 times after a period of time. The researchers concluded that poor academic achievers and students whose academic achievement has deteriorated are more likely to turn to the use of marijuana. In another research done by Arria, Caldeira, Bugbee and Vincent (2015) between the relationship marijuana use and academic consequences, they made a connection between skipping class, grade point average (GPA) and the use of marijuana.

The prohibition of marijuana does not stop Americans from obtaining the drug, but simply intensifies the unnecessary criminality and danger surrounding its use. Marijuana should be legal to obtain because statistics and scientific studies throughout the world prove that the legalization of the drug would not only make the United States safer, but also benefit the country financially. The criminalization of marijuana has dramatized a violent image of the drug which media outlets exacerbate by using scare tactics and myths. Legalizing marijuana would eliminate any unsafe or uncomfortable means that the over 100 million Americans who have admitted to using the drug currently have to go through to obtain it. This would separate violence, murder, and the sales of other deadly drugs such as cocaine or heroin from recreational marijuana use.
When BMI is decreased and PAI is increased, the risk ratio was 15% for heart failure. An increased BMI with an increased PAI gave a risk ratio of 21.9%. When the BMI is decreased and PAI is decreased the risk ratio is 24.5% for heart failure. With an increased BMI and a decreased PAI, the risk ratio was 25.6% (see Appendix C for the number of events and the number at risk for each category). According to the risk ratio results when comparing BMI to PAI, whenever the PAI was decreased the risk ratio was significantly higher than when it was increased, which demonstrates that physical activity does have an impact on the prevalence of heart failure.
Nowadays in the US society people started to use marijuana for recreational purposes. And it is responding to obvous abuse damages of human health. Whether the use of marijuana for recreational use should be legalized or not is still question that bothers many generation of human society. In my paper, I will be against legalization of marijuana; despite of its usefulness in the medicine I believe that side effects outweigh the benefits. People very easily get addicted to it, it affects people’s mental health and it can be the primary cause of different kind of illnesses.
