Keith Olbermann, #45 …. “TRUMPCARE …. Gutting Health Care Will Kill Americans …. “!!


KO-45

~~March 15, 2017~~ 

APOCALYPSE FORETOLD

I’ve been in healthcare all my professional life. At this time, I’ve been retired for 4 years.

I can truly tell you, from the front lines, that healthcare is a major issue in the lives of all Americans.

You never know when any medical condition will strike you or any member of your family.

It can deal a devastating blow to life as you know it … emotionally and financially.

It’s my strong personal belief that we are on this Earth to help each other when needed.

We are not here to hurt anyone!

Trumpcare vs. Obamacare

The Congressional Budget Office report on Trumpcare is out, and it’s devastating: 14 million people losing insurance in the first year, 24 million over time, with premiums soaring for older, lower-income Americans — in many cases, the very people who went strongly for President Trump.

The C.B.O. thinks it would reduce the deficit, but only marginally, around $30 billion a year in a $19 trillion economy.

Obamacare imposes a mandate to induce healthy people to sign up, offers means-tested subsidies to make insurance affordable and expands Medicaid to take care of people with really low incomes. Trumpcare eliminates the mandate, slashes subsidies overall and redirects them to those who don’t need them and sharply cuts Medicaid.

Of course that leads to a huge drop in coverage.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #45.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If they don’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Thank you!

WORLD AIDS DAY

Anthony S. Fauci, MD, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
Carl W. Dieffenbach, PhD, Director, Division of AIDS, NIAID

This year, 2016, the world marked the 35th anniversary of the first published reports of what would come to be known as HIV/AIDS.

This disease has wrought enormous suffering and devastation and caused more than 35 million deaths. Yet today, thanks to remarkable achievements in biomedical science and public health, we have the tools to build a better future for individuals living with HIV and for those at risk of infection.

We are hopeful that new approaches currently under exploration could expedite the end of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

GOOGLE SEARCH 

As a retired medical professional, I’ve seen this time and time again since the advent of the internet.

I do believe in the “informed patient” scenario, yet this can be a scary thing.

I still believe in the advise of “asking your doctor before you try this”.

Counting on common sense of the people who search.

Googling a medical issue can feel like falling down an endless black hole of links

Google plays doctor by identifying your medical symptoms

Google’s mobile site as well as its iOS and Android apps will introduce a feature that aims to track down information on medical symptoms. Instead of having to search for a condition, you can search for a certain symptom, such as “my stomach hurts.”

In response, Google provides an overview of potential conditions, possible treatments, directions on how to get more information online and which type of doctor may be able to help.

Something to think about …. “The Story of My Life …. “!!

~~June 10, 2016~~ 

TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THIS

My life has been the proverbial roller coaster of dieting and weight loss back to weight gain.

I’m in my 60’s now.

It’s not a matter of looking good anymore.

It’s a matter of feeling good and being healthy.

I have started another regimen.

This time it’s accompanied by working out.

Not the usual working out at a gym.

I’ve started doing Pilates.

So far so good.

Today was the second session of a one-on-one trainer.

It felt good today.

I’m motivated.

I want to do this because I don’t want my joints to hurt so much anymore.

I need to be more mobile.

Life is going by fast …. Let’s get this done.

EMERGING EPIDEMIC

This isn’t anything new.

It’s been the reality of many American families, kept in secret for the stigma it brings.

Losing well known personalities to this addiction should bring the topic to the forefront for further discussion.

Recognizing this as a medical condition is mandatory.

Treatment should be available, not only to well known personalities but also to the common “Joe“.

Big Pharma seems to be working to make a fortune on treatment for this condition.

This should be stopped.

American citizens need help not secrecy, price gouging or stigmatization.

Prince, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heath Ledger all died from opioid overdoses

Toxicology results are in.

Prince died from an opioid overdose. He became just one of thousands of Americans who have fallen victim to prescription painkillers. Since 1999, the number of opioid-related deaths have nearly quadrupled.

Opioids – whether prescription painkillers or heroin – reduce the perception of pain and create feelings of pleasure. They are highly addictive. Over time, the body’s opioid receptors become accustomed to the drug; users may need to take a higher dose to get the same euphoric feelings and stave off withdrawal. When taken in excess, opioids can kill users by depressing their ability to breathe.

And as the Boston Globe reports, the United States is dealing with two inter-related drug abuse epidemics: One for prescription pills, and one for heroin.

MEDICAL CORNER …. “Sex Reassignment Surgery …. male-to-female … “!!

SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY 

MALE TO FEMALE

I’m a retired physician.

I worked actively for almost 40 years.

As I look back, I see all the progress that has been made in so many different aspects of medical care.

One very important and interesting one is the ability to reassign anatomically correct genitals to those individuals who feel they are trapped in the wrong body.

Another important aspect, to me personally, has to do with these anti-LGBT laws that are popping out in so many states. These laws are clearly discriminatory against a group of citizens who are a part of this country.

WARNING!

The included video is an animated video released by the European Society of Urology that demonstrated the surgical process.

It’s not for the faint of heart of those who are easily offended.

This is medicine.

This is actual surgery.

My intention is education for anyone who stops by this post.

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Sex reassignment surgery for male-to-female involves reshaping the male genitals into a form with the appearance of, and, as far as possible, the function of female genitalia.

Prior to any surgeries, patients usually undergo hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and, depending on the age at which HRT begins, facial hair removal.

There are associated surgeries patients may elect to, including facial feminization surgery, breast augmentation, and various other procedures.

G9

When changing anatomical sex from male to female, the testicles are removed, and the skin of foreskin and penis is usually inverted, as a flap preserving blood and nerve supplies (a technique pioneered by Sir Harold Gillies in 1951), to form a fully sensitive vagina (vaginoplasty).

A clitoris fully supplied with nerve endings (innervated) can be formed from part of the glans of the penis.

If the patient has been circumcised (removal of the foreskin), or if the surgeon’s technique uses more skin in the formation of the labia minora, the pubic hair follicles are removed from some of the scrotal tissue, which is then incorporated by the surgeon within the vagina.

Other scrotal tissue forms the labia majora.

FIVE SURPRISING SIDE EFFECTS OF DRINKING DIET SODA

Here are 5 side effects of diet soda according to prevention.com

BLine

Number 5

The low calorie drink may cause cell damage

Diet sodas contain preservatives that many standard carbonated beverages do not – sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate. According to Peter Piper, a professor at the University of Sheffield

“These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it – they knock it out altogether.”

Number 4

A good metabolism is nothing to take for granted

Research conducted in 2008 studied nearly 10,000 people. The scientists found that just consuming one diet soda a day puts you at a 34% higher risk of metabolic syndrome which is linked to excess belly fat and high cholesterol.

Number 3

Detrimental effects on kidneys

Researchers at Harvard Medical School have spent more than a decade studying the effects of diet soda on the kidneys. The scientists found that the drinks were related to significant chances of kidney function decline in women who drank more than two of these beverages per day.

Number 2

Increasing waistlines

You may not want to switch to diet soda if you’re trying to lose weight. A study carried out by the University of Texas Health Science Center found that drinking two or more cans of diet soda per day actually increased waistlines. Another study by Purdue University suggested artificial sweeteners played a role in hindering the body’s ability to regulate calorie intake.

Number 1

If you wish to avoid a hangover, you may want to steer clear of diet soda.

Alcoholic beverages which contain diet soda will get you drunk a lot quicker. An Australian based study revealed that sugar-free cocktails caused booze to enter a person’s bloodstream faster than drink concoctions made with real sugar.
