Trench warfare introduced new infections and diseases, like trench foot and trench fever.
To cite an instance, Brown University wrote, “because of illness and death workers became exceedingly scarce so even peasants felt the effects of the new rise in wages”(“social”). The population decline affected the economy in many ways. Though there were many negative consequences, there were also some positives, such as higher wages. Additionally, an excerpt from 'The Black Death’ reads “The Black Death did more than kill large numbers of people. It also altered many social customs disrupted trade, and made most people fearful of contact with strangers”(Bender 65).
But an epidemic of aggressive medical care treatments such as too many procedures,too many blood tests provided by hospitals or clinics are costing our nation 's healthcare system billions of dollars each year. Despite being recognized to be harmful to patients and their loved ones, “aggressive care” is still administered to the majority(75%) of patients, concludes a study done by the American Society of Clinical Oncology(Johnson,2016). After watching the videos and reading the article on medical care my stance on aggressive healthcare is it is unnecessary and I am against it. What people don 't realize is that if we keep providing aggressive health care treatments to individuals suffering from serious illnesses or people living through the end of life it can take a human toll in pain, mental or emotional suffering, severe implications and even death. Most people prefer to die peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones and want care to focus on comfort, but that is not always the case for many patients who die in hospitals hooked up to hospital machines in pain and suffering to hold on for their dear lifes.

The long term economic trends keep getting worse. These trends would continue to destroy the middles classes unless changes are made. Good jobs are replaced by low paying service jobs.

Health care and tuitions are also rising and now millions of American families cannot afford it.
Especially in the age with soaring cost of medical services, the prevalence of some modern chronic diseases, such as obesity and Type-2 diabetes, has been a miserable phenomenon in the society. In fact, there are too much processed food and animal-sourced foods in people’s daily recipes and it is one of the leading causes of chronic problems (Nutrition Facts, 2017). Hence, the introduction of plant-based diet is considered to be a feasible solution in order to shifting people’s unhealthy dietary habits because of its significant benefits in a long term. According to the medical research from Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism, Vang et al reveal that people who intake meat product weekly have a more 74% probability of developing diabetes than people who are adherent to vegetarian style (2008). In contrast, a relative low-fat, plant-based diet can dramatically avoid and cure diabetes with less medicine assist.
Reasons for trafficking include both supply and demand factors. Firstly, many researchers argue that poverty adds to the supply of humans available for trafficking. India is a developing country it is known that poverty is still widespread today.

The increase of contracting infections in acute settings and intensive care units is currently of great concern. If these infections go untreated, it can consequently cause the loss of life, and increase mortality and morbidity. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will not pay for infections that were acquired during a hospital stay. This affects hospitals, preventing them from being financially fruitful. Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common nosocomial infections reported.
Specificity of diagnosis, abnormal lab test and medication is often vital healthcare information in the medical record. Failure to document this information significantly slows hospitals from collecting the correct level of payment. Hospitals should not only target coders for performance improvement given that no level of accurate coding can overcome the lack of documentation. The Doctors that underdocument care and services provided represent the most significant opportunity to increase charge and reflect the severity level and provide adequate defense. When researched, Advisory Boards nationwide has uncovered multiple cases in which improved physician documentation has increased annual by 1.5 million.
Drug abuse is a major problem that impacts negatively on its users and the society at multiple levels. In one way or another, substance abuse affects members of the community taking a tremendous toll on the society at large.

Medical non-compliance in the Homeless: Methods of Improving Medical Adherence Medical adherence is an important factor of health in the homeless population. Failure to adhere in the way prescribed by a health provider not only exacerbates existing and additional medical conditions, but it increases the overall cost of healthcare due to additional emergency hospital visits (Hong, Reed, Novick, Haro, & Aguado, 2011). The New England Healthcare Institute (NEHI) estimated that an annual medical cost of up to $290 billion is a result of medical nonadherence (Coe et al., 2015). Besides medical costs, not only is the homeless population negatively impacted by medical nonadherence, but the general population is also affected due to the higher possibility
