Peru: climatic changes, diseases and food crisis.



Climate change in Peru brings out new diseases in areas of Cuzco where a portion of the crop is being lost by drought and pests.

The farmers of Peru sick when no money bequeathed to the clinic, they have to return to die in the community, as happened in Cuba before 1959 by the testimony of a peruvian farmer in a video of "BBC Mundo".(1)

秘魯農民生病時沒有錢遺贈給診所,他們必須返回到死在社區,如發生在1959年前古巴。

ペルーがない場合にお金が診療所に遺贈病人の農民は、彼らはコミュニティで死ぬことを返すために、キューバは1959年前に起こった。

戲劇在庫斯科更為激烈時,農民去醫院沒有錢,要回去的病人,他的社會,一些保存只有當他們能治愈草藥和傳統醫藥。(點擊這裡觀看視頻)病媒傳染的疾病(東西,傳播疾病),如登革熱和瘧疾的壁龕,以前或多或少自己,已經開始增加地勢較高的地方,“他告訴 BBC新聞曼努埃爾博士蒙托亞,庫斯科行政區域的傳染病醫院。藥用植物,即使是受到氣候變化的消失在庫斯科。 在秘魯。氣候變化帶來了新的疾病在庫斯科地區的一部分喪失作物受旱災和蟲害。

クスコのドラマのときには、農民の病院にお金なしで行く強烈されている患者への彼のコミュニティにはいくつかの場合にのみ、これらのハーブ、伝統的な薬です。(ここをクリックしてビデオを参照してくださいで治癒することができます保存されて戻ってはならない)ベクトル疾患(周りに病気を移すの負担)、デング熱、マラリアは、以前は、多かれ少なかれ自分のしたニッチのような、より高い地面に増加する"と彼はBBCのニュース博士マヌエルモントヤに指示し始めている最高経営責任者感染クスコ地域の病院です。も、薬用植物クスコの気候変動によって消えている。 ペルーでは。気候変動をクスコの分野で、新しい病気が作物の部分は、干ばつや害虫によって失われているもたらします。

En una de estas camas descansa Cirila, quien ha contraído bartonellosis, una enfermedad transmitida por el mosquito conocido como la manta blanca, que ha comenzado a aparecer a mayor altura. La razón: el aumento de las temperaturas.

Cirila tiene apenas fuerza para hablar. Con lágrimas en los ojos me dice que quiere volver a su casa. Allí la esperan su hija, su parcela y sus animales.

Pero por el momento no está en condiciones de irse. La fiebre y la anemia severa no le permiten siquiera levantarse de la cama.

Los médicos aún no saben si la paciente podrá recuperarse: la mortalidad de los pacientes hospitalizados en las nuevas áreas es de hasta 30%.

"Ésta y otras enfermedades transmitidas por vectores (seres vivos que transmiten una enfermedad) –como el dengue y la malaria- que antes estaban en nichos más o menos propios, han comenzado a aumentar en zonas más elevadas", le dice a BBC Mundo el doctor Manuel Montoya, Jefe del Servicio de Infectología del Hospital Regional de Cuzco.
...vector-borne diseases (Things that transmit disease), such as dengue and malaria in niches that were previously more or less own, have begun to increase in higher ground, "he tells BBC News Dr. Manuel Montoya, Chief of Infectious Cuzco Regional Hospital.

The drama in Cuzco is more intense when the farmers go to the hospital without money have to go back to the patient to his community where some are saved only if they can be cured with herbs and traditional medicine.Even medicinal plants are disappearing by climate change in Cuzco (Click here and see the video)(1)

Phytochemicals in plant-based foods fight obesity and prevent disease, researchers say in the University of Florida.


by S. L. Baker, features writer

(NaturaqlNews) If you ever feel tempted to go for a cheeseburger, fries and a soft drink, consider this: along with the fast food, you are ordering up an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. But the opposite is true, too. According to a new University of Florida (UF) study, if you stay away from processed and fast foods and instead eat a lot of veggies, nuts and fruits, you will actively be helping to prevent or reverse harmful metabolic processes in your body. The result? Better health and a slimmer body.



An important advantage to having plant-based foods as an abundant part of your daily diet appears to result from the phytochemicals they contain. As noted in the UF findings recently published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, these natural substances prevent oxidative stress -- a process linked to being overweight and to the onset of diseases including heart disease and diabetes. Phytochemicals include lycopene from tomatoes, isoflavones from soy, beta carotene from carrots, anthocyanins from blueberries, allicin from garlic, and many more.

Without enough phytochemicals and antioxidants to counteract oxidative stress, damaging free radicals cause inflammation and other toxic problems in the body. In overweight people, excess fat tissue and certain enzymes that are more active also trigger the production of excessive free radicals, according to a media statement by the UF researchers.

The research team, headed by Heather K. Vincent, Ph.D., studied a group of 54 young adults divided into a normal weight and an overweight or obese group, analyzing their dietary patterns over several days. Surprisingly, the people in both groups took in about the same amount of calories. However, the overweight and obese young people were found to be eating fewer plant-based foods. That means those who were carrying around excess pounds were consuming fewer protective trace minerals and phytochemicals and consuming far more saturated fats.

In addition, those eating less plant-based foods were found to have higher levels of oxidative stress and inflammation in their bodies than their normal-weight counterparts. This is a crucial finding because oxidative stress and inflammation are processes clearly associated with the onset of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and joint disease.

"Diets low in plant-based foods affect health over the course of a long period of time," Dr. Vincent explained in a statement to the press. "This is related to annual weight gain, inflammation and oxidative stress. Those are the onset processes of disease that debilitate people later in life."

"People who are obese need more fruits, vegetables, legumes and wholesome unrefined grains," she said. "In comparison to a normal-weight person, an obese person is always going to be behind the eight ball because there are so many adverse metabolic processes going on."

In order to get enough protective phytochemicals daily, the UF researchers concluded that people should try to consume plant-based foods such as leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes at the start of each meal. As a way to encourage people to get enough phytochemicals from meals and snacks, Dr. Vincent also called for use of a phytochemical index, which compares the number of calories consumed from plant-based, nutrient-rich foods with the overall number of calories taken in each day.

"Fill your plate with colorful, low-calorie, varied-texture foods derived from plants first. By slowly eating phytochemical-rich foods such as salads with olive oil or fresh-cut fruits before the actual meal, you will likely reduce the overall portion size, fat content and energy intake. In this way, you're ensuring that you get the variety of protective, disease-fighting phytochemicals you need and controlling caloric intake," said Vincent, an assistant professor in the UF Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute, in the media statement.

Cuban University, first in the Caribbean area, ranks in the global competition of the Association for Compunting Machinery.

ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field's premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources.

Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela and Colombia and Cuba, for first time will represent Latin America in the event of China.

My comment to this news in "Juventud Rebelde"
Now when I read this news in the web of the newspaper "Juventud Rebelde" in Havana Cuba think that it was time for computation classified internationally because since 1977 with the support of Russia and UNESCO for the integration of Cubans in the space race began to have computer labs, at least where I worked in the Universidad de Oriente in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba.But in that time, few Cuban leaders were aware of computer, This impacted on the media never talk about it, only as something exotic, even though thousands of students already had access to computers .. There are currently related to science computing data in the media in Cuba, but still I think that speaks very little about computing to the population, nor are there any TV programs as a fundamental principle of development in the country and for environmental protection as an island subject to climate change, such as , South Korea does, yet a central computer system that monitors pollution in the entire Korean peninsula and report any pollution or climate event in rivers, reservoirs and costs on time... Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34233.
Мой комментарий к этой истории.Теперь, когда я читал эту новость в Сети газеты "Хувентуд Ребельде" в Гаване, Куба думаю, что настало время для расчета подразделяются на Кубе международном уровне, поскольку с 1977 года при поддержке России и ЮНЕСКО по включению кубинского космическая гонка начались компьютерные лаборатории, по крайней мере, где я работал в университете де-Ориенте в Сантьяго-де-Куба.Но в это время несколько кубинских руководителей осознают компьютер, это сказалось на средства массовой информации никогда не говорят об этом, только как нечто экзотическое, даже тысячи студентов уже имеют доступ к компьютерам .. Есть в настоящее время связанные с данным СМИ на Кубе, но все же думаю, что очень мало говорит о вычислительных для населения, и не существует никаких телевизионные программы в качестве основополагающего принципа развития в стране и за охраной окружающей среды как на острове с учетом изменения климата, таких как Южная Корея делает, пока центральная компьютерная система, которая контролирует загрязнение весь Корейский полуостров и сообщать о любых загрязнений или климатические события в реках, водохранилищах и расходов.

"Jamaican Observer": a hard time for workers.

A small poor country like Jamaica paid a hundred times the weight of the global economic crisis when confronted with a banking system based in rich countries unequal trade and political discrimination against the weak economy of developing countries.The global economic crisis created by rich countries is passing the bill for the weaker economy and isolated, without political credit, and where a product of the basic food basket worth ten, twenty times or thirty times more than in a rich country. ..Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34233.

Having to live on minimum wage
...a harsh reality for many Jamaicans

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Think about all the things you can buy with $4,070. Think harder
Four thousand and seventy dollars can't even buy a good pair of shoes, yet, that is how much many Jamaicans who earn the national minimum wage - $814 - a day, must survive on weekly.
"The cash register rings and the items add up. A can of corned beef costs $165, a can of mackerel - $53.52, a can of sardines - $51.22, a (very) small whole chicken (1kg) $275.57, 1 kg salted fish - $529, one sachet skimmed milk powder - $62.40, one can sweetened condensed milk, $107.50, one bottle cooking oil (500ml), $131.99, brown sugar (1kg) $68.75, bulk rice (1kg) $74.44, bulk cornmeal (1kg) $86.99, counter flour (1kg) $59.50, 1 doz eggs, $149. The cost to feed a family of three, for a week - too much.
Those who must survive on this sum speak of a life of hardships and sacrifices, and what's worse is that some employers exploit workers by paying sums lower than the minimum stipulated by law."

ABSTRACT
While ocean acidification is predicted to threaten marine biodiversity, the processes that directly impact species persistence are not well understood. For marine species, early life history stages are inherently vulnerable to predators and an innate ability to detect predators can be critical for survival. However, whether or not acidification inhibits predator detection is unknown. Here, we show that newly hatched larvae of the marine fish Amphiprion percula innately detect predators using olfactory cues and this ability is retained through to settlement. Aquarium-reared larvae, not previously exposed to predators, were able to distinguish between the olfactory cues of predatory and non-predatory species. However, when eggs and larvae were exposed to seawater simulating ocean acidification (pH 7.8 and 1000 p.p.m. CO2) settlement-stage larvae became strongly attracted to the smell of predators and the ability to discriminate between predators and non-predators was lost. Newly hatched larvae were unaffected by CO2 exposure and were still able to distinguish between predatory and non-predatory fish. If this impairment of olfactory preferences in settlement-stage larvae translates to higher mortality as a result of increased predation risk, there could be direct consequences for the replenishment and the sustainability of marine populations.

Because I was treated by psychiatrists creators

of this center Mazorra known in Havana and because

of my relationship with the national Health Ministry

as a writer and journalist of Radio Rebelde in Havana,

ICAIC, the University of East and Medical School

in Santiago de Cuba, by the two routes, I was fortunate

to have access to the literature of psychiatry

who handled the Che Guevara when

he created the Universal Health System in Cuba

and in that file I found the literature

to Dr. John Money was part of Che's medical studies,

Dr. Ordaz, founder of modern psychiatry Cuban

and Argentine psychiatrist close friend of Che,

director of the psychiatric center of Santiago de Cuba

from whose archive I found a file with letters from

John Money with the adress and

phone number of the scientist in Maryland ..

This is strong evidence of American doctors and

scientists as unobtrusively, without drums and cymbals,

with a strong humanitarian interest, supported the ongoing

development of medicine in Cuba.That was how I met through

the mail to my unforgettable friend and teacher.

the australian-american scientist Dr. John Money, the global world leader in sexology.

My thesis on poetry of Victor Villegas,

based on Jhon Money Sexofia,

that was published

in Dominican Republic in 2000,

has credit in a US National

report about

education of sciences to

Senate and The US President...

The thesis on the poetry of Victor Villegas,

President of the Union of Writers of the

Dominican Republic was developed on

the basis of the criterion that the source of

Caribbean identity, influential throughout

the world today, has its origins in the

Dominican Republic, Haiti, based on linguistic

and psychological model of "Don Quixote",

the first source of psychoanalysis in the Western world.

The now published from the

exchange of information with Dr. John Money

in Maryland Sicohormonal unit was tutored

by the doctoress of medical sciences,

scientific researcher and chief of psychiatry

at the School of Medicine, University of Oriente,

Cuba, Drs. Josefina Berstard Guillois, Phd. M.D

. Currently ongoing research to develop this line

of semantics as a sequel based on "Don Quixote"

because, recently proposed a review, derived

from this thesis, and was incluided in a

report by the National Association of Sciences,

who directs NASA addressed to

the Senate and the U.S. President

on the state of the nation in science education,

my name included as a

private colaborator for Sarasota, Florida

Thus I consider that this research can serve psychiatrists,

sociologists and pedagogues at the time of analyzing

the contradiction between personality and behavior

patients also have sports fields and a small forest.I see first Developing a daunting activity outside the center, with public participation in over a hundred patients, but previously developed social activities with smaller groups.Although patients are separated into rooms, almost all of them have social life together involved in the main street when leaving the room or when going to breakfast, lunch, two snack break and dinner.Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34233.

Where to go in Sarasota, Florida if you are sick in demostrated financial needs

Handled for economic gain, political and / or legal to a mental patient goes against human rights.

La periodista del Canal 41 Gina Romero logró entrevistar a Pánfilo en el siquiátrico donde está internado.
One notorious case in Cuba is Panfilo an alcoholic and a vagabond who was wrongly convicted by a Cuban court when it is actually a mental patient with no responsibility for their actions.Panfilo under social pressure was referred to the psychiatric center of Mazorra where treatment was given as patiente but could not cure alcoholism.Improperly, the case of a homeless patient social object of medicine has been manipulated by the international tabloid press in Cuba was mismanaged by the legal system ...
一個臭名昭著的案件中,古巴是拉克一個酒鬼和流浪者誰是錯判一個古巴法院在其實際上是一個精神病人,沒有為自己的行為負責。拉克社會壓力下,已交由精神病中心馬索拉在治療給出 patiente,但不能治愈酗酒。不當的案件無家可歸的病人的社會對象的藥物已經操縱下的國際小報在古巴不善法律制度..

When my wife and I went out in the mornings in the car to do any management in Sarasota, Florida, we see that increases dramatically the number of people wandering the sidewalks with obvious mental problems without treatment, or family or friends who care for them, people who should be treated as patients in a room crisis intervention, something that is normal in Cuba for these social cases, but in the U.S., under the current health system are people likely to fail in a jail because of illness Untreated mental. This is the case with workers who pay their insurance, but this insurer do not pay really the expensive doctor's prescription medication for his mental illness, psychiatrist or the doctor are lack today with free samples to give the his patient in financial need as they use to do before the economy crisis. We have not seen a single news article referred to this issue I think is a critical problem in the county of Sarasota we face every day because and is alarmant because the increasing number of homeless on the streets and especially in the "dow town" that overload the normal job of a police department no created to deal with social case or disease rate in population instead to law enforcement duties.Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34233.
....................................................................................................................................

If you sick and are in demostrated financial need in Sarasota, Florida you can afford health care in "Community Medical Clinic" by the referal Sarasota Health Department, North County Health Center or phisicians on staff at Sarasota Memorial Health Care System..

The mission of the Community Medical Clinic is to provide specialty care referral services to those residents of Sarasota County who truly demonstrate a financial need. Providing access to care for those individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, or those who do not have the financial resources to receive specialty care elsewhere is the primary goal.
Proof of Sarasota County Residency (current picture identification and/or utility bill in your name with your complete address) is required. Low income and little or no insurance are also a criteria. Those seeking care must be referred by Senior Friendship Centers, Sarasota County Health Department or North County Health Center or physicians on staff at Sarasota Memorial Health Care System


By LESLEY ALDERMAN, November 21, 2009
IMAGINE this situation. You fall into a deep
malaise. Friends say you need help, but you don’t have insurance (or the insurance you do have has very limited mental health benefits), and you worry that extra bills will only add to your malaise. So you do nothing.
And that’s what many people do. According to a recent survey by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (Samhsa, pronounced SAM-suh) , the leading reason that people with mental health issues don’t seek treatment is cost. They fear the fees.
“There’s a misperception that care is always expensive, but that’s not the rule,” said John Draper, a psychologist and the project director of the
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800 273-TALK), a free 24-hour service supported by the federal government. “There are plenty of ways to get help,” he said. “Some of them are very affordable.”
But while affordable mental care exists, it’s not always easy to find or get immediate access to.
Two weeks ago,
I wrote about how people with insurance can navigate the mental health system to get the help they need at prices they can afford. This week, I offer advice for those without insurance, or with only minimal coverage, on how to find low-cost mental health care.
MILDLY STRESSED? “Not all mental health problems require a professional therapist,” says Michael B. Friedman, a social worker and an adjunct professor at
Columbia University’s School of Social Work in Manhattan. For instance, if you just lost your job and you’re worrying constantly and sleeping poorly, you may be in a transient state of unease that will abate once your job hunt gains traction.
If you’re feeling depressed or anxious, but still coping relatively well, try making changes on your own (rather than spending money on a pro).
“Committing to one small change a week, like getting an extra hour of sleep or walking for 30 minutes a day, can go a long way toward improving your state of mind,” said Karina Davidson, a clinical psychologist and director of the Center for Behavioral Cardiovascular Health at Columbia University.
The change itself, combined with making the commitment to change, can have a subtle but profound effect on your mental health, said Ms. Davidson, who conducts research on the effect that
depression has on cardiovascular disease.
Another low-cost but very effective strategy, Mr. Friedman said, is to join a support group that addresses the problem you are struggling with, whether it’s job loss or an
eating disorder. “People get tremendous benefit from interaction with others,” he said. To find support groups in your area, contact the local affiliate of the nonprofit group Mental Health Americaand ask for a referral.
If a close relative has a drinking problem, consider attending
Al-Anon meetings where you can share your feelings and listen to the stories of others in a similar situation. Or if you yourself have a drinking problem, attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings can be incredibly useful.
If time is an issue or you can’t find a support group near you, consider an online group.
Psych Central, a mental health resource site, is host to 150 online support groups and monitors each one to ensure that they are protected and secure, according to the site’s founder, John Grohol. Notably, over the last year, activity on the site’s unemployment and job search groups has increased to about 750 a day, Mr. Grohol said, up from 500 or so previously.
If you want a more intimate therapeutic relationship, and you belong to a congregation, do consider seeing your pastor. Pastors typically take courses in counseling, and some even have counseling degrees.
“It’s not medical care, but it can be very therapeutic,” says William J. Hudock, a special expert at the Center for Mental Health Services, a division of Samhsa.
TROUBLE COPING? How do you know when it’s time for professional help? “If you can’t get your act together,” said Mr. Friedman.
For instance, you should be job hunting, but you’re sitting in front of the TV all day. Other signs are symptoms like
chronic insomnia, overeating or undereating, or lack of interest in your favorite activities or sports teams.
If you are employed and your company offers an employee assistance program, take advantage of it. It’s free, and they can typically set you up with three or so sessions with a therapist.
If you have a good relationship with your primary care physician, you could see him or her. Your doctor may be able to refer you to a local mental health center for therapy, and maybe consider medication to help you out of your immediate funk. Doctors may also know of
psychologists who see patients on a sliding fee scale.
If you don’t have a doctor you like or you want an evaluation by a mental health professional, look for local universities that have graduate programs in social work or clinical
psychology. You can often get treated by graduate students who are being closely supervised, at less than the going rates.
Some private counseling centers also offer variable fees. For instance, at the
Ackerman Institute for the Family, a nonprofit counseling center in Manhattan, families with limited means are charged fees based on their income.
“We are not going to turn someone away based on their ability to pay,” says Lois Braverman, president of the institute.
If your child is having trouble, seek out the child psychologist at his or her school. This can be a great first-line treatment and it doesn’t cost a thing, said Mr. Hudock. Or talk to your pediatrician, who might know of affordable parenting classes or sources of low-cost care in your area.
If the problem relates to
substance abuse, call 1-(800) 662-HELP, a federal help line for obtaining information on substance abuse treatment services.
IN CRISIS OR
SUICIDAL? When you or someone you know is in crisis, you can go to the nearest emergency room for immediate help. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-TALK) where you will be connected to the nearest crisis center in your area.
The
Web site for Lifeline also has valuable information on how to cope with mental health crises, like how to arrange for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation or spot warning signs for depression.
You can use the Lifeline for any type of mental health crisis — not just suicide, says Mr. Draper, who adds that “70 percent of callers are not suicidal.” The people answering the calls can determine what help you need and also refer you to a facility for treatment, whether it’s a local hospital or a government-run mental health clinic.
In New York City, callers are referred to
LifeNet (800 LIFENET). LifeNet answers about 10,000 calls a month.
In some areas of the country, dialing 211 can connect you with mental health crisis services in your area or help you find where to seek immediate help.

A word of warning: When you are looking for low-cost care, you might face longer waits than when you are paying full fare (or your insurer is). But don’t let this deter you from staying the treatment course. Untreated mental health issues can very often lead to serious (and even more costly) medical problems.

The primary catechins found in green tea are epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin-3 gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the most potent. As potential chemopreventive agents, catechins scavenge free radicals; inhibit enzymes involved in cell replication and DNA synthesis; interfere with cell-to-cell contact adhesion; and inhibit various intracellular communication pathways required for cell division. In addition, it has been postulated that EGCG may "trap" growth factors such platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) on cell membranes, immobilizing growth factors on cell membranes and preventing ligand-receptor crosslinking and growth factor receptor activation.

According to new research, the beneficial antioxidant ingredients of green tea called catechins are better absorbed when the tea is mixed with lemon juice. Lemon fruit abounds in ascorbic acid—which is the scientific name for vitamin C—and scientists from Purdue University showed that catechins can be absorbed up to three times as fast by intestinal cells and get into the bloodstream when the vitamin is present. Connie Weaver, head of the National Institutes of Health Purdue University-University of Alabama at Birmingham Botanical Research Center for Age-Related Diseases, which funded the study, explains that there is much interest in studying bioactive materials that might protect people from disease and promote better health and well-being. She adds that "what’s been totally ignored is the way these materials are found in foods in combination with other ingredients."Catechins are a class of antioxidant polyphenols that scientists believe reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes, and in addition to tea they can be found in cocoa and grapes.
