Dengue Fever and Global Warming

Global warming or global warming to give effect to the human health sector either directly or indirectly. Increasing the temperature effect on the life of the mosquito that the dengue fever flare.

Prof. Dr. Soeharyo Hadisaputro dr.Sp.PD-KPTI, Teacher of the Faculty of Medical UNDIP who is also the Chairman of the Infectious Diseases Researchers tropical Semarang explain the influence of direct and indirect climate change on human health.

Directly: comfortable temperature for human life is between 20-25 degrees centigrade. Because climate change, the winter is very extreme cases it can increase asthma bronkial, violence dermatology, heat waves (heat waves) will cause the heart to work harder to cool down the body (circulation increases high) so that it can cause increased fatalitas.

Indirectly: Changes you morbiditas disease is transmitted by vectors (mosquitoes) or Vector borne disease. Bionomi mosquito that has changed due to increased temperature and humidity with the behavior of a particular mosquito akan changed which boast of the mosquito and the desire to search for food is greater. Egg production capability is also growing. In addition, the human settlement of the earth's temperature and extends the increasing mosquito can then crawl to the mountains of more than 1,000 meters above sea level and extends to the sub-tropical region.

Indonesia is tropical country with an average temperature of 24-28 degrees centigrade and the night where the daytime temperature is 3-10 derjat centigrade and clear changes between the wet season and dry season. Characteristic gives the opportunity to live suburnya mosquito vectors as penular some particular disease. Increasing the temperature effect on the life of vectors (breed quickly, a short period of maturity, Biting rate (bites level) increased, activity also increased reproduction) so that the mosquito population increases sharply.

Year 2100 is estimated to increase the temperature more than 3 degrees centigrade and this causes the occurrence of disease that is spread mosquito 2-fold higher. Other diseases caused by the vector (Vector borne disease) is also increased such as malaria, dengue fever dengue, Chikungunya, Japanese Encepahlitis, and Filariasis.

Diseases transmitted through water that can also be increased due to sea water and the flood tide of the disease, especially high among other morbiditasnya leptospirosis, Hanta virus infection. Even diseases due to climate change with a high temperature such as a new infection, Avian Influenza, Swine Influenza, Hanta virus infection, and Japanese Encephalitis.

The increasing cases of dengue fever due to global warming it is the necessary tool to detect dengue fever in a rapid, precise and accurate.

"In principle, the victim due to bombardment of the same penanggulangannya other mass casualty, but the principle triase needed in the handling of victims in the field," said dr Kartono Mohammad when contacted detikHealth friday (17/7/2009).

It also required coordination between the ambulance with the hospital, so that officers can directly know the victim must be taken to hospital where.

"On the principle victims of this triase marked with a flag of different colors depending on the gravity of the injury suffered, so that health workers can identify where the victim must be quickly brought to the sick and what does not, so the handling can be more efficient and effective, 'he added .

Triase this principle also applies in the emergency room, to determine whether the patient has to be brought to the operating room, ICU or in the handling of UGD only.

"Indonesia has experienced events that often result in victims of mass, so we should have a special team that can apply this principle triase in the field. But I do not know if we have a special team like this or not," said former Chairman of the IDI is PB.

Kartono add that to form this team needed special training, even in the medical world has learned about this principle triase.

Kartono reveal almost all the hospitals in India have to meet standards or have tools that are required in bulk penganangan victims like this.

Stay Healthy eyes in the Old Age

Eyes are the window to the world. Therefore, eye health should always be kept to stay to enjoy the beauty of the world. However, in line with the increasing age, the tool also join this vision to decrease.

Nah, that the healthy old age or in the golden age, can do in the treatment of eye, with healthy foods that contain a certain vitamin.

Why is the quality of human vision indra slowly decreasing? One of the causes is the enemy at a time bebuyutan natural lens, which is the sun.

Cells of the lens produces a protein called kristalin. This protein functions as a fiber optics, which filter the light through the lens to the retina.

Elements of red, blue, green, yellow, and ultraviolet (UV) can penetrate the lens is transparent. Of all the elements before, UV can damage the lens, while the blue rays that can potentially damage the retina of its duties as a membrane sensor pelapis eyes of the recipient and the images formation lensa.enerima image formation lens.

There is also a result of natural metabolic processes, ie, free radicals that can cause damage. If not dinetralisirkan by antioxidants, the oxidation is too long potentially harmful lipid, to be transparent from the previous diagram. Turbidity is usually called a cataract.

Antioxidants in food is a compound that helps cells and tissue dipertahankannya the lens and healthy organs other. In the lens, are a large amount of vitamin C and E, lutein, and also zeaxanthine. The damaged proteins accumulate, the more clouded lens.

Protective and nutrition that is rich in antioxidants bargains and practical solutions for preventing cataracts. Moreover, if compared with the cost of operating room entrance.

Women with the consumption of vitamin C and E, riboflavin, betacaroten, the highest lutein and zeaxanthine that have the smallest tendency of women suffering from cataracts pengkonsumsi nutrition rather low.

At the age above 55 years, because of macular degeneration is the age of the main causes of blindness and vision damage. This occurs because the damaged cells in the retina that is sensitive to light.

The focus is the yellow spot (yellow spot) selebar 3 mm, is called macular latea, located in the middle of the back of the eye, the eye can still create a focus, so that we can read or see an image.

However, in the eyes of 'old', the protein began to accumulate teroksidasi and cause problems. Fortunately in the eyes there are two types of karoten, namely lutein and zeaxanthine, which help protect the eyes in a way to absorb blue light and free radicals menetralisasi. People with macular degeneration have the dry zeaxanthine and lutein is lower rather than the normal, so that its function as protective antioxidants is not the maximum.

In line with the project AREDS (Agerelated Eye Disease Study) which was held for seven years, experts in the biochemistry nutrition research shows most do not already, that the risk of macular degeneration because age has been reduced in those who consume vitamin C, E, beta-karoten, and zinc for at least six years.

Secret Diet Success, easy Only

Most people who do know that the diet reduces calorie diet is the key of success. But they do not know how to apply these theories.

Not a secret anymore if people fail to diet in the middle of the road. As in Rudy Termini, a pensioner aged 65 years in the U.S., which fought tooth and nail down the body weight for 4 years.

"Three times a week I play tennis and go to the gym to do the diet, but the results have not appeared as well," said Termini's dilansir such as Forbes.

Termini is also interested in eventually participating in a clinical trial for two years at the Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women's Hospital. Two years experience in the exercise, the successful Termini reduce weight 23 pounds.

Dr. Donald Hensrud, a nutrition specialist from the Mayo Clinic said reducing calorie diet is the key to success. But it will not be successful if the theory is not practiced.

An investigator from the National Weight Control Registry, Suzzanne Phelan has been tracking the decline of body weight following the 6000 participants of the experiment. He also let the secret strategies of successful diet.

One effective technique is to monitor more closely the amount of calories and more weight. This requires a note-calorie foods and high commitment to the diet.

With the fixed weight and mencocokkannya consistent with the ideal body weight diimpikan, someone can adjust what should and should not be dimakannya.

"In fact, everything is very simple, and I have membuktikannya. Changing plus meat sandwich with white bread, ice cream to enjoy in small portions and a glass of beer in the evening, is a habit that I try to apply first," said Termini.

Aspirin Prevent Hearing Disorders Due to Antibiotics

Aspirin was not only effective for the headache. Joint team of experts from China and the United States (U.S.) found that the drug is also useful to prevent interference antiobiotik type of hearing due to aminoglycosides. Please note, these types of antibiotics commonly used for about 60 years to treat acute infections, tuberculosis, and several other diseases. Unfortunately, side effects are loss of hearing ability.

These are written in the New England Journal of Medicine and involving 195 Chinese patients who received between 80 to 160 milligram gentamicin (aminoglycoside similar) through infus, two times a day. Provision made during the five to seven days. Among these patients, 89 of them receiving the same treatment of aspirin. While the other 106 received a medication that affects plasebo (seems as if to heal), in addition to receiving antibiotic treatment.

Level of hearing loss appeared in the aspirin patients was 3 percent. Meanwhile, those who have not been given aspirin had a 13 percent disturbance. Evident that the patient be given aspirin, 75 percent are suffering from hearing loss to the level of illness are lower.

''We want to disseminate the findings to medical communities around the world so that you can do for the prevention of risks on your patients. Aspirin easy and affordable,''said Jochen Schacht, professor in the field of chemical biology Ear, nose and throat (ENT) medical school at the University of Michigan (UM)''Before, we found that the treatment was successful in mice, but I am very happy when I found that this also works in humans. Applying research from animals to humans is not that easy,''said Schacht.

Tobacco smoke pollutant Generate More from Diesel Engines

LONDON - MIOL: Research conducted by the researchers in the UK stated that cigarette smoke produces 10 times more pollutant than many cars with a diesel plant.

A research in Tobacco Control magazine, published by the UK Health Journal, also shows that air pollution due to cigarette smoke in a closed space 15 times larger than in the open.

The experiment was performed in a garage in the city Chiavenna, northern Italy, a region that has a low pollutant content. Pollutant in the smoke is the most dangerous compound in air pollution, the gas can come from many different kinds of sources including cigarettes and pipes gas disposal. Pencemar substances that can cause various types of dangerous diseases, such as emfisema, wet lungs, asthma, and cancer.

The researchers chose a garage as the place of the experiment, because the size is similar to the office space in some places. They said that the research should get more attention because the results of an experiment that, in fact also shows the influence of cigarette smoke bad for passive smokers.

In the experiment, the diesel engine car brand Ford Mondeo with a two-liter of fuel switched on for 30 minutes in a garage with the garage door closed and six small vents left open.

They then compare the results with the trunks of three smoke cigarettes during the 30 minutes start on the garage with the same conditions the same.
A pollutant analysis tool used to measure the degree of pollutant in the experiment every two minutes.

The researchers also found that when the number of cigarettes switched pollutant particles 15 times higher than outside the room, while the amount of pollutant diesel engine when switched on only about two times larger than the outside situation.

Prevent Diabetes with 30 Minutes walks

Walking, also appeared to also be able to prevent diabetes.

Who does not recognize the diabetes disease? This disease can attack anyone male or female and does not consider the age of the patient.

Living with diabetes is not very comfortable. Besides can cause complications, diabetics must also depend on the diet drugs and contemporary life.

Well, one easy way to prevent this disease is to walk. Physical activity that includes mild to moderate physical activity and a more intensive, can reduce the risk of diabetes affected.

According diabetesvic.org.au lower blood sugar by reducing the production of glucose in the liver of the fat. Increasing the average glucose in the cells and glucose sensitivity, increase insulin sensitivity up to 12-24 hours after physical activity, and increase high-density liporpotein (HDL-good cholesterol) in blood.

Study in Australia indicate that participants who walk between 85 minutes-3 hours per week, can reduce the risk of exposure to diabetes 31%. The intensity of running a routine (5 days per week) for at least 3 hours per week can reduce the risk of diabetes in young people exposed to 31-42%.

Research also shows that women who actively perform physical activity such as walking, can reduce the risk of diabetes compared with the infected woman who does not do physical activity at all.

Walking is also associated with a decrease in body weight can reduce the risk of diabetes affected. Adolescents considered overweight or who do not perform active physical activity has 3 times more likely than adolescents affected diabetes who have normal body weight.

Walk for 30 minutes can improve glucose control, which can help muscles absorb blood sugar and prevent blood flow stoppage. This effect can survive for long hours or several days, but not permanent, so that walking is required regularly to control blood sugar.

Cardiovascular or heart health is better, because people with diabetes will increase the risk of heart disease, so the walk can reduce heart disease also affected.

For first, with a slow start, run for 5-10 minutes on the first day can still be received, the most important is not to get injured or sick in your body.

Add 5-10 minutes per week, then increase again to reach the goal for 45 minutes to 1 hour, 5 to 7 days a week, because it is the ideal time for the maintenance of blood glucose. But the health benefits of increasing start time of 30 minutes per day.

The most important in a walking shoe that is comfortable to use for your feet so that it does not cause injury or wound, you should use the walking shoes and do not forget the socks.

The findings in the Journal Nature provides new hope for world health in an effort to slow the aging process are already old.

However, experts in the UK still opposed to the findings that extend the age of man, Section of drugs that can reduce the human immune system.

Rapamycin, a drug it has been found on the first island in the eastern part of 1970s, usually used to prevent organ rejection in patients who akan ditransplantasi, open the coronary arterial blood vessel, and also as a cure for cancer.

Researchers from Texas, Michigan and Maine provide drug on mice that age is almost the same as the man at the age of 60 years, and also the physical conditions that are disease prone.

"I never thought would find anti-aging pill in this period now. Rapamycin promised this," said researchers from the Barshop Institute, Dr. Alan Richardson, as quoted from BBCNews, Saturday

Effect is given by rapamycin by limiting the entry of the same calorie food, the mind can also prolong life.

"Drugs that target seeking protein in cells, called mTOR, which functions in the body's metabolism and response to stress," says Alan.

However, researchers must find ways to cure this mereformulasi to remain stable at the time of entering the channel before the rat digestive effects medicine reduced.

Coffee is not too bad

Coffee, known more negative effects such as dependency and increase the attack of stroke due to damage to the blood vessel wall. Do not antipahateic first, if drunk in accordance doses, coffee also has a value of plus-plus.

Coffee is always identical with caffeine. Caffeine is a chemical compound or alkaloid known as trimetilsantin in the coffee of 1-1,5%.

Work is taking over caffeine reseptor adenosin (one of the nerve cells in the brain that can make someone fall asleep fast) so that it will spur the production of hormones adrenalin, and consequently do not feel drowsiness.

Dilansir from Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, Friday (10/7/2009) coffee has some benefits that are very useful to the body.

Stretching and How to stretch ?

How to stretch ?...That question always appear at the internet but How ? The basic stretching is not going to far but “No pain no Gain” The first You must use your tights, or leotard for keep your muscles warm. Warm up is very usefull for increase your cardiac output and increase the body temperature. Remember, warm up is not stretching, but light stretching is a warm up.

Stretching exercises are designed to increase range of motion. Flexibility is defined as the ability of the muscle to relax and yield to a stretching force; as such, flexibility exercises are used to increase length of the musculotendinous unit. The term flexibility exercise is often used synonymously with stretching exercise, as is done here unless it is otherwise necessary to make the distinction.

Several general guidelines should be followed to enhance the effectiveness of stretching exercises and to minimize the risk for injury. Before stretching, local application of heat or engagement in light active exercise to elevate body temperature may be beneficial because it increases soft tissue extensibility. Massage and biofeedback may be employed to promote relaxation and to decrease muscle spasm, making it easier to stretch tight muscles.

If mobility of a joint surface is limited, mobilization techniques are used before stretching exercises. Athletes should stretch until tightness is first perceived. Stretching exercises should avoid forcing the joint beyond the normal range of motion required for athletic activity. Stretching exercises should not be performed in the acute stages of healing.

Stretching during this period may jeopardize the healing tissue and aggravate inflammation. During this time, range of motion exercises rather than stretching exercises should be used.

Stretching exercises should not cause a persistent increase in pain that lasts longer than 1 to 2 hours. Caution must be used in stretching across the fracture site of a newly united fracture. Stretching exercises should not be used in an attempt to increase motion that is limited by a bony block.

Stretching exercises may be performed actively or passively. During passive stretching, the stretch is produced by forces external to the body. The external force can be applied manually or mechanically. Manual passive stretching exercises are performed by the physical therapist or athletic trainer.

Passive mechanical stretching is performed by use of a mechanical device to apply a low (5- to 10-pound) external load to the shortened tissues. Passive mechanical stretching may be performed with the use of ankle weights or other mechanical equipment. In active stretching, the stretching force is created by active voluntary contraction of the athlete's muscles. Active stretching allows incorporation of the neurophysiologic principles of stretching, which are discussed later.

Stretching exercises may be cyclic or prolonged. Cyclic stretching refers to a stretch that is maintained for a short time (i.e., less than 10 seconds) but performed for many repetitions. Prolonged stretching, on the other hand, consists of low-load stretches that are maintained for longer times for a fewer number of repetitions. The length of a prolonged stretch is variable and may range from 30 seconds or more to several hours, depending on the patient's level of tolerance.

The total end-range times for repeated cyclic and prolonged stretches may be similar. Prolonged stretching may result in greater permanent lengthening of contractile and noncontractile tissues; however, cyclic stretching may be better tolerated by the athlete.
Stretching exercises can also be performed statically or ballistically. A slow static stretch is less likely to elicit a stretch reflex response.

Ballistic stretching refers to a high-intensity, short-duration stretch that results in rapid lengthening of the muscle, which in turn stimulates the muscle spindle and facilitates a stretch reflex. The musculotendinous unit is susceptible to microtrauma with ballistic stretching. Ballistic stretching may be beneficial immediately before engaging in exercise, but it should be performed only after a warm-up that includes slow static stretching.

When the athlete demonstrates limited range of motion in the subacute or chronic phases of healing, stretching exercises are indicated to regain the motion that is necessary for athletic activity. Stretching exercises can also be used to correct muscle imbalances that result when a muscle group is tight and its opposing muscle group is weak.

In general, the tight muscle group should be stretched before strengthening exercises are performed to improve strength of the opposite muscle group. Stretching exercises may also be indicated before activity as a warm-up and after activity as a cool-down. Proper warm-up and cool-down minimize the risk for musculotendinous injuries associated with physical activity and sports.

Can Double Travel risk of blood clots ?


NEW YORK (Reuters Health)– The Study published Monday strengthens the evidence that long-distance travel can lead to potentially fatal blood clots in some people -- showing that the risk grows in tandem with the length of the trip.

In an analysis of 14 previous studies, researchers found that, in general, travel was associated with a nearly three-fold increase in the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) -- blood clots that form in the veins, often in the legs.

If such a clot dislodges and travels to the lungs, it can cause a potentially fatal condition called pulmonary embolism.

The smallest cells in the blood are the platelets, which are designed for a single purpose—to begin the process of coagulation, or forming a clot, whenever a blood vessel is broken. As soon as an artery or vein is injured, the platelets in the area of the injury begin to clump together and stick to the edges of the cut. They also release messengers into the blood that perform a variety of functions: constricting the blood vessels to reduce bleeding, attracting more platelets to the area to enlarge the platelet plug, and initiating the work of plasma-based clotting factors, such as fibrinogen. Through a complex mechanism involving many steps and many clotting factors, the plasma protein fibrinogen is transformed into long, sticky threads of fibrin. Together, the platelets and the fibrin create an intertwined meshwork that forms a stable clot. This self-sealing aspect of the blood is crucial to survival.

Alzheimer can be cured with Coffee ?


The coffee bean is a fruit composed of two seeds covered by a fleshy pulp. The common coffee plant, Coffea arabica, is one of the two economically important species of the approximately 30 species of coffee plants found throughout the world. Grown chiefly in the western hemisphere, the common coffee plant accounts for approximately 80 percent of total world production of coffee.

Alzheimer’s Disease, progressive brain disorder that causes a gradual and irreversible decline in memory, language skills, perception of time and space, and, eventually, the ability to care for oneself. First described by German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer in 1906, Alzheimer’s disease was initially thought to be a rare condition affecting only young people, and was referred to as presenile dementia. Today late-onset Alzheimer’s disease is recognized as the most common cause of the loss of mental function in those aged 65 and over. Alzheimer’s in people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, called early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, occurs much less frequently, accounting for about 10 percent of the estimated 5 million Alzheimer’s cases in the United States.

Although Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of the aging process, the risk of developing the disease increases as people grow older. About 13 percent of the United States population over the age of 65 is affected by Alzheimer’s disease, and about 42 percent of those over age 85 are believed to have the disease. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the incidence of the disease increased dramatically from 2002 to 2007, rising by 10 percent. With an aging population the number of cases is expected to more than triple by 2050 unless a cure can be found.

Alzheimer’s disease takes a devastating toll, not only on the patients, but also on those who love and care for them. Some patients experience immense fear and frustration as they struggle with once commonplace tasks and slowly lose their independence. Family, friends, and especially those who provide daily care suffer immeasurable pain and stress as they witness Alzheimer’s disease slowly take their loved one from them.

Michael Jackson and Cardiac Arrest


On June 25, 2009, Jackson collapsed at his rented mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles. Attempts at resuscitating him by his personal physician were unsuccessful. Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics received a 911 call at 12:22 p.m. (PDT), arriving three minutes and seventeen seconds later at Jackson's location. He was reportedly not breathing and CPR was performed. Resuscitation efforts continued both en route to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and for an hour further after arriving at approximately 1:13 p.m. He was noted to have been in cardiac arrest by the paramedics who attended him at his house.Jackson was pronounced dead at approximately 2:26 p.m. local timeRumors and news of Jackson's death broke web records, triggering a cyberspace traffic jam and creating severe traffic spikes to websites such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and Wikipedia Vigils were held by members of the general public after the death.
Michael Jackson, born in 1958, American singer, dancer, and songwriter. Jackson is one of the bestselling popular music artists in history, but beginning in the 1990s he became better known for his eccentric behavior and strange personal life.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana. At the age of five he joined his brothers' singing group, which was dubbed the Jackson 5 (later renamed the Jacksons). Michael's dancing ability as well as his singing skills quickly made him the group's leader. Under the guidance of music producer Berry Gordy, founder of the Motown Records label, the group became very successful. Among the Jackson 5’s most popular songs were “I Want You Back” (1969), “ABC” (1970), and “I’ll Be There” (1970).

Jackson's first solo album, Got to Be There (1971), established him as an independent performer. Leaving the family group, Jackson played the Scarecrow in the musical film The Wiz (1978) and recorded the hit album Off the Wall (1979), which included a number of songs he had written. His 1982 album Thriller, produced by Quincy Jones, earned an unprecedented eight Grammy Awards, and would remain on the top of the Billboard charts for 9 months, eventually selling over 27 million copies in the United States alone. The music videos of the singles “Beat It” (for which he received a Grammy), “Thriller,” and “Billie Jean” from this album made Jackson a popular performer on MTV (see Music Television). The videos popularized one of Jackson’s singular dance moves, known as the moonwalk.

Jackson rejoined his brothers for the album Victory (1984) and a subsequent six-month tour. He also cowrote the song “We Are the World” (1985), which was performed by a group of more than 40 famous musicians. All profits from the single and video of this song were donated to programs targeting world hunger. Jackson's album Bad (1987) produced a number of hit singles—including the title song and “Man in the Mirror”—and his 1991 album Dangerous and its single “Remember the Time” were also bestsellers.

In 1995 Jackson’s double album HIStory was released. Half of the album is a compilation of the most successful songs from Thriller, Bad, and Dangerous, while the other half is a collection of original compositions. In 1996 Jackson won a Grammy Award for the music video “Scream” (1995), created with his sister Janet (see Janet Jackson). That same year he divorced Lisa Marie Presley, the late Elvis Presley's daughter, whom he had wed in 1994. Jackson eventually remarried and fathered two children before divorcing a second time in 1999. A third child was born in 2002 with the aid of a surrogate mother.

Jackson’s career went into decline after he faced allegations in 1993 that he had molested a 13-year-old boy. Although he was never arrested, in 1994 Jackson settled a multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit with the boy’s family without admitting to any wrongdoing. The boy refused to testify against Jackson in a criminal trial, and the investigation into the allegations became inactive. Following this incident the California legislature revised state law to require victims of child molestation to testify in criminal proceedings.

Jackson released the album Invincible in 2001, but the collection of new material did not sell nearly as well as his previous albums. The same year he was elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (the Jackson 5 had been elected in 1997).

In 2003 Jackson was arrested on multiple counts of child molestation, giving alcohol to a minor, extortion, and false imprisonment. The boy who accused Jackson of molestation testified during the trial, as did his mother, and testimony about alleged previous incidents of molestation by Jackson was also presented. Jackson’s defense attorneys countered by casting doubt on the credibility of the accuser and his family.

A heart attack, also known as a myocardial infarction, usually occurs when a blood clot forms inside a coronary artery at the site of an atherosclerotic plaque. The blood clot severely limits or completely cuts off blood flow to part of the heart. In a small percentage of cases, blood flow is cut off when the muscles in the artery wall contract suddenly, constricting the artery. This constriction, called vasospasm, can occur in an artery that is only slightly narrowed by atherosclerosis or even in a healthy artery. Regardless of the cause of a heart attack, the oxygen deprivation is so severe and prolonged that heart muscle cells begin to die for lack of oxygen. About 1.1 million people in the United States have a heart attack every year; the heart attacks prove fatal for about 40 percent of these people.

A person having a heart attack typically feels an intense, crushing pain in the chest, especially on the left side. The pain may radiate to the person’s neck, jaw, and left arm. The pain is often similar to an attack of angina, but more intense and longer lasting. Other signs of a heart attack include profuse sweating, nausea, and vomiting. However, heart attack symptoms can vary greatly among people. In one study, about one-quarter of people who had a heart attack felt only mild symptoms and did not seek medical attention, and about 12 percent experienced no symptoms at all.

Some people have gradually worsening bouts of angina before having a heart attack. For others, a heart attack may be the first signal of heart trouble. No matter what a person’s medical history, anyone who experiences symptoms of a heart attack should go to a hospital without delay. Oxygen deprivation can cause permanent damage to the heart within hours or even minutes, so the faster a heart attack patient receives treatment, the better the chance of survival.

Swine flu and insurance 1977

In January some army recruits at Fort Dix, N.J., reported to the infirmary with what appeared to be bad colds. By February 13 further investigation, in cooperation with the federal Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, indicated that the recruits had so-called swine influenza, a relative of the Spanish flu that had broken out in the closing days of World War I and killed 500,000 persons in the United States and 20 million around the world in 1918 and 1919. This March 24, President Gerald Ford announced a program to inoculate everyone in the United States against the swine flu virus.

The four largest U.S. drug firms began work to prepare the vaccine. In June, however, the Warner-Lambert Company, which was expected to supply half the vaccine, notified the federal government that it was losing its liability insurance on the vaccine program July 1. The other companies reported they too were having difficulty with their insurance programs. It was feared by the insurers that they would face not just the usual quality control and related problems involved in such a large crash program, but that the controversial nature of the mass inoculation drive would lead to the filing of a great number of lawsuits. The insurers estimated that it would cost them $25 billion in legal expenses just to defend the suits, in addition to any monetary settlements awarded by the courts. The pharmaceutical companies asked for governmental intervention.

In August, after long debate, Congress passed legislation under which people claiming injury as a result of the vaccination program would sue the federal government rather than the drug firms. The government in turn would be able to sue the drug firms and medical personnel involved to recover money paid out in cases where negligence was proved. But the firms were freed of the responsibility—and the cost—of defending unwarranted suits. Nobody could predict at the time what the cost of this risk assumption will be to the government. In the past there have been few negligence claims in connection with flu shots. Public health officials think the cost may be only a few million dollars. However, based on their medical malpractice experience, some insurance executives believe the cost might run into the billions.

Product liability.

The swine flu insurance problem is, essentially, one of product liability. Increasingly, consumers have turned to courts to obtain reparations for injury resulting from purchased goods or services. A recent study estimated that about 1 million product liability cases were filed this year. As in the swine flu situation, just the cost of appearing in court to answer the suits can be a staggering sum for the insurers.

Several proposals have been made to deal with this cost problem, including the substitution of arbitration for jury determination of awards; the establishment of a relatively short period during which claims could be made; and the elimination or restriction of the contingent fee basis for paying lawyers. It has been charged that this fee system, under which lawyers receive payment only if they win a case, leads some lawyers to encourage suits.

Cancer (medicine), any of more than 100 diseases characterized by excessive, uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, which invade and destroy other tissues. Cancer develops in almost any organ or tissue of the body, but certain types of cancer are more life-threatening than others. In the United States and Canada cancer ranks as the second leading cause of death, exceeded only by heart disease. Each year, about 1.7 million Americans and more than 150,000 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer, and more than half a million Americans and about 70,000 Canadians die of the disease.

For reasons not well understood, cancer rates vary by gender, race, and geographic region. For instance, more men than women develop cancer, and African Americans are more likely to develop cancer than people of any other racial group in North America. The frequency of certain cancers also varies globally. For example, breast cancer is more common in wealthy countries, and cervical cancer is more common in poor countries.

Although people of all ages develop cancer, most types of cancer are more common in people over the age of 50. Cancer usually develops gradually over many years, the result of a complex mix of environmental, nutritional, behavioral, and hereditary factors. Scientists do not completely understand the causes of cancer, but they know that certain lifestyle choices can reduce the risk of developing many types of cancer. Not smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercising moderately for at least 30 minutes each day can lower the likelihood of developing cancer.

Estimated Cancer Incidence by Site and Sex

Just 60 years ago a cancer diagnosis carried little hope for survival because doctors understood little about the disease and how to control it. Today about two-thirds of all Americans diagnosed with cancer live longer than five years. While it is difficult to claim that a cancer patient is disease free, long-term survival significantly improves if the patient has had no recurrence of the cancer for five years after the initial diagnosis. For years, death rates from cancer were rising in developing countries. In 2006 the American Cancer Society reported that the number of cancer deaths in the United States dropped for two years in a row. The decrease was attributed to a decline in smoking, earlier detection, and improved treatment.

The National Cancer Institute of the United States (NCI) estimates that more than 10 million Americans are living with cancer or have been cured of the disease thanks largely to advances in detecting cancers earlier. The sooner cancer is found and treated, the better a person’s chance for survival. In addition, advances in the fundamental understanding of how cancer develops have reduced deaths caused by certain cancers and hold promise for new and better treatments.

Osteoporosis, bone condition characterized by a decrease in density, resulting in bones that are more porous and more easily fractured than normal bones. Fractures of the wrist, spine, and hip are most common; however, all bones can be affected. Osteoporosis primarily affects women, who account for nearly 80 percent of all cases. White and Asian women are the most susceptible, but women of other races are also at considerable risk. Other risk factors include low calcium intake, a thin build, inadequate physical activity, certain drugs, such as corticosteroids, cigarette smoking, alcohol, and a family history of the disease.

The most common form of the disease, primary osteoporosis, includes postmenopausal, or estrogen-deficient, osteoporosis (Type I), which is observed in women whose ovaries have ceased to produce the hormone estrogen; age-related osteoporosis (Type II), which affects those over the age of 70; and idiopathic osteoporosis, a rare disorder of unknown cause that affects premenopausal women and men who are middle-aged or younger. Secondary osteoporosis may be caused by bone disuse as a result of paralysis or other conditions, including weightlessness in space; endocrine and nutritional disorders, including anorexia nervosa; specific disease processes; and certain drug therapies.

Recent research has shown that the development of osteoporosis is also related to a gene that determines the type of vitamin D receptor (VDR) a person inherits. The VDR gene exists in two forms, one of which produces a receptor that stores calcium more efficiently than the other. People who inherit two copies of the more efficient VDR gene develop high bone densities. Those who inherit two copies of the less efficient gene have somewhat less strong bones.

While there is currently no cure for osteoporosis, it is preventable in most people. Preventive measures include maintaining a balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, weight-bearing exercise, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol. Hormone replacement therapy can be used to prevent and treat osteoporosis. Drugs used in treatment include raloxifene, calcitonin, and alendronate. To monitor a patient’s response to treatment, many physicians administer bone scans to determine bone density one or two times a year.
