(BERLIN, Germany.) Lawsuits Report: Bayer ‘ rise over claims that subsidiary ‘ Monsanto Weed Killer Roundup ‘ causes cancer risks associated with its glyphosate-based weedkillers #AceNewsDesk reports

 #AceNewsReport – Nov.14: More than 42,000 plaintiffs have joined lawsuits against German chemical giant Bayer, blaming the company’s glyphosate-based weedkiller for their cancer: The number of plaintiffs, largely brought by US citizens, is now at 42,700 — more than double the 18,400 reported in the middle of July, Bayer announced on Wednesday.

DW Reports: The legal cases all concern Roundup, a weedkiller with controversial active ingredient glyphosate: “This significant increase is clearly driven by the plaintiff-side television advertising spend which is estimated to have roughly doubled in the third quarter compared with the entire first half of the year,” Bayer said in a statement: “However, the number of lawsuits says nothing about their merits,” it added: Claims against the company gathered momentum following a lawsuit in August 2018 that found Monsanto, a Bayer subsidiary, should have warned of alleged cancer risks associated with its glyphosate-based weedkillers: Read the Full Article The Guardian news, [Nov 10, 2019 at 07:20] Thailand wants to ban these three pesticides: The US government says no | Carey Gillam reported that The Trump administration is putting profits before people by pressuring the country not to ban harmful chemicals made by Dow, Syngenta and MonsantoYou know it’s a dark day for America when foreign leaders have to lecture US officials about the importance of prioritising public health over corporate profits.Yet that is what is happening now, as the Trump administration pressures Thailand not to ban three pesticides that scientific research has shown to be particularly dangerous to children and other vulnerable populations.

#BREAKING144 ‘ EPA Aircraft emissions endanger peoples lives ‘

#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON:June.10: (WASHINGTON EXAMINER) The Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday that emissions from commercial jets cause climate change, endangering the public’s health and welfare.

“Today’s action supports the goals of the President’s Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions from large sources of carbon pollution,” the EPA said in a press release.

The announcement is the first step in regulating the emissions from commercial airlines that most scientists say are to blame for manmade climate change. The regulations fall in step with the agency’s efforts to regulate the emissions from cars, trucks and power plants.

The EPA says it is excluding military and smaller aircraft from the regulations.

MOSCOW: ‘ KEY POINTS OF VLADIMIR PUTINS STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS ‘

#AceNewsServices – RUSSIA – On December 4 Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered his annual state of the nation address to the Federal Assembly, the both chambers of Russia’s parliament. The state of the nation address is a basic document, which outlines the president’s positions on major directions of the Russian policies not only for the coming year, but also for future.

Position on the Ukrainian crisis and Crimea’s unification with Russia

Russia has the right to pursue its sole line of development, the president said. “This applies to Ukraine as well,” Putin said. He called hypocritical the use of human’s rights issue to cover for the state coup in Ukraine.

The president recalled the Crimean referendum and the reunification of the republic with Russia. The reunification, he said, is a major historic event. Crimea has significance for Russia, he said, and Russians will handle it that way forever.

On US influence: 

The United States always influences Russia’s relations with neighbouring states directly or behind-the-scenes, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Getting back to the way Russia’s dialogue with Europe and the US on Ukraine was developing, the president said “It is not by chance that I have mentioned our American friends, as they have always been influencing our relations with neighbours directly or behind-the-scenes”.

“If some European countries have forgotten about their national pride long ago and are considering sovereignty to be a great luxury, real state sovereignty is an absolutely essential condition for Russia’s existence,” Putin said.

On sanctions:

“Of course, sanctions are harmful, but they are harmful for everyone, including for those who initiate them,” Putin stressed. The Russian president however said sanctions and restrictions motivate to reach the set aims. Putin said he’s sure that the sanctions are not just a “nervous reaction of the United States and its allies” to Russia’s behaviour in connection with events in Ukraine and not due to “the Crimean spring.”

“The policy of containment was not invented yesterday. It has been carried out against this country for many and many years — always, if one can say. For decades if not centuries,” Putin said.

“Each time when someone believes that Russia has become too strong, independent, these tools are used immediately,” the Russian leader said.

Russia isn’t going to stop relations with Europe or America. Besides, Putin said, Russia has many strategic friends and partners in the world. The country will be open for the world and for attracting investments from abroad for joint projects, the president said. He sets a task of increasing the investment in the Russian economy to 25% of the GDP by 2018.

On import substitution:

Reasonable import substitution is Russia’s strategic goal in the near future, Vladimir Putin said in his address. Russia should get rid of dependency on foreign equipment, including for oil drilling in the Arctic, the president said. According to him, when foreign companies buy equipment abroad, it doesn’t do any good for Russia. They should use local products, Putin said. If Rusia buys anything abroad, the products have to be unique. Putin set the task to create conditions fot the SME to take part in the government procurement programs.

Who loves Russia should wish freedom for it On support of terrorism in Russia from abroad and disbalance in the world

Since 2002, when the US abandoned the Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty, there’s been a threat of strategic disbalance in the world, and it’s bad even for the US itself, Vladimir Putin said. “I think this is harmful for the United States as well, because it creates the dangerous illusion of invincibility,” Putin said.

He noted Russia isn’t going to get involved in the arms race though it will do its best to provide its security. The president added that Russia has nonstandard solutions.

It’s useless to try talking to Russia from position of strength. “We remember the countries that supported the terrorists in Russia …and those people make trouble today in Chechnya,” Putin said. The terrorists, according to the president, still receive support from abroad. “Those countries want the Yugoslavian scenario to happen in Russia, he said. Putin noted they will fail just as Hitler failed with his misanthropic idea.

On government spending:

According to the president, Defense Ministry should create a new system for control of budget spending. Improper spending in the sphere of defense can be considered as a threat to national security, he says.

Vladimir Putin says all budget corporations should have a common treasury, and all companies with large state share should reduce their costs several per cent each year.

On industry modernization:

Putin says Russia is capable of modernizing its economy and being leader in the world in certain industries. To achieve that, Russia has to use internal resources, like the Academy of Sciences, and attract Russian nationals from abroad. By 2020 half of Russian colleges should have training cources for 50 most popular professions, says the president.

On demography and care for the disabled:

Russian demography programs have proven efficient and the programs will be extended for Crimea, says the president.

“The country’s population is almost 144 million people, it’s 8 million over the UN outlook,” says Putin. Russia has life a expectancy of over 71 years and has all chances to increase it to 74, he says.

Putin thanks the Russian athletes for their participation in the Sochi Paralympic Games. He says Russia should increase support for the disabled. This, according to the president, includes professional training, production of specific goods, among other things.

WEST AFRICA: ‘ EBOLA VIRUS CLAIMS 7,000 PEOPLE DATA FROM WHO CONFIRMS ‘

#AceWorldNews – WEST AFRICA – Nov.30 – Almost 7,000 people have died from the Ebola virus in West Africa, according to new data released from the World Health Organization, AFP reported.

According to the UN health agency, of the 16,169 people infected with the deadly virus in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, 6,928 have perished.

The latest figures are about 1,200 more deaths than reported on Wednesday, which AFP attributed to possible “unreported cases.”

AUSTRIA: ‘ Hospitals to Suspend Circumcisions Motivated by Religious Custom ‘

#AceWorldNews – AUSTRIA (Vorarlberg) – September 13 – The governor of Vorarlberg has told hospitals run by Austria’s westernmost province to suspend circumcisions motivated by religious custom, citing a German regional court ruling that the practice amounted to causing criminal bodily harm.

Markus Wallner says he sees the German decision last month, arising from the case of a child whose circumcision led to medical complications, as “precedence-setting judgement.”

He told provincial hospitals Tuesday not to perform the procedure except for health reasons until the legal situation is clarified in Austria.

The decision does not affect religiously motivated circumcisions performed outside hospitals run by the Vorarlberg government, and comes a week after two Swiss hospitals announced that they would temporarily stop performing circumcisions.

On Thursday, the Zurich children’s hospital announced that it was temporarily halting circumcision operations. “We are in the process of evaluating the legal and ethical stance in Switzerland,” said Marco Stuecheli, a spokesman for the hospital. 

“There can be complicated cases where the mother of a child wants a circumcision but the father is opposed to it,” he added.

OBAMACARE SPAWNING ‘MEDICAL HOMELESSNESS’ CRISIS

California Obamacare enrollees are struggling to find doctors who accept their newly purchased health insurance plans.

I struggle in my tiny Scottish brain to understand and relate myself to American healthcare again here. I don’t know how other countries work, but today, same as every Monday I drive for my medication, or someone collects for me (I Still take some and have other medications at hand) to the chemist. I only see my Dr if there is a change in medication, mostly it is phone consultations as it’s often hard for me to make an appointment. I will get 8 items today in a big bag for free £$. In two weeks I have a scan on my knees planned last week at hospital, again for free. Should I decide I want to see my Dr today, I call before 10am, see him within 3 hours with any new medication, again FREE So why does the biggest, bestest nation on Earth have to keep people waiting months, charge hundreds of dollars a month and allow at least 500 Americans to die every day. A health service ranked about 30th best in the World.

As usual, links at the bottom

WHAT HAPPENED AMERICA? How can little old me get that in tiny Scotland (Totally different rules from England) and you can’t America? I feel guilt speaking to American friends always 😦 the ones who need medication badly and have to wait. In a system YOU pay for, you can’t have a say in what medication you need. North Korea has better health care 😦

UCSF Dr. Kevin Grumbach calls the phenomenon “medical homelessness.” CBS San Francisco says that many of the health care clinics for low-income individuals that helped people enroll in Obamacare are now seeing those same people “coming back to the clinic begging for help.” “They’re coming back to us now and saying, ‘I can’t find a doctor,'” Rotacare clinic staffer Mirella Nguyen told CBS San Francisco. “What good is coverage if you can’t use it?”

The problem stems from Obamacare’s “narrow networks” – extreme restrictions on access to doctors and hospitals in an effort to cut costs. California single mother of two Thinn Ong experienced the pain of Obamacare’s narrow networks when she realized that her $200-a-month Obamacare plan is not accepted by many of the doctors in her area. “Yeah, I sign it. I got it. But where’s my doctor? Who’s my doctor? I don’t know,” said a frustrated Ong.

CBS San Francisco reports that “Experts said the magnitude of the problem is growing, and will soon be felt by all Californians.” Breitbart News contributor Scot Vorse experienced the reality of Obamacare’s narrow networks when he discovered that the closest dentist who accepted the required dental plan he was forced to purchase for his children was over 100 miles away. Californians are not the only ones coming to terms with the reality of Obamacare’s narrow networks. In Staten Island, New York, Margaret Figueroa, who suffers from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries, says her Obamacare plan denied vital medications and dropped all her doctors. Figueroa’s congressman, Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY), said he’s already received similar complaints from at least a dozen of his constituents.

Concerns that Obamacare’s narrow networks would spawn a medical homelessness crisis have been building for months. The Washington Post warned in January that “Obamacare’s narrow networks are going to make people furious.” Obamacare’s narrow networks crisis comes as vulnerable Democrats are scrambling to distance themselves from the president’s unpopular health care program. On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Obamacare has Democrats “running from it rather than on it.” Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) said last week that Obamacare will cost Democrats dearly in the Nov. 4 midterm elections. “We will lose seats in the House,” said Lynch. “And I think we may lose the Senate. I think that’s a possibility if things continue to go the way they have been… primarily because of health care.”

#Brazil : ” Rio protests over`Public Transportation Price’ Erupt in Violence “

#AceWorldNews says Demonstrations in Rio de Janeiro’s primary train station turned ugly Thursday when Brazilians protesting against a ten cent fare hike violently clashed with police.
Activists threw stones and petrol bombs at police dressed in full riot gear as the chaos spilled from inside the station onto the surrounding street.

A cameraman for Band TV was hospitalized in serious condition after he was struck by either a stun grenade fired by police or an explosive thrown by demonstrators. Thousands of commuters were trapped inside when police shut down the transit system, and many became ill because of the tear gas.

Thais Jorao, 22, told The Washington Post that the outrage was about more than the fare increase. “If it was a public transportation fare hike when we had good health services and education, you would not have this many people on the street,” he said.

“On top of this you see spending with the world Cup, things that we really don’t need. We want health, education, decent public transportation.”

Tribute to Shaun Gibson: “One Man’s Feelings of `Being Human’ Just for a `Moment’ in Time”

#AceGuestPost and his View of `Feeling Human’ just for a moment, please read

tumblr_m926b1WIbY1qbrzd4o1_500

When we as people suffer from any illness, mind issue, depression, pain, anything that makes us feel less than Human and suffer unimaginable despair. Some suffer 24/7 and if it is unfair on these people, screaming and crying all day unable to do limited things. Can you imagine? Then there are people who are in pain all day but are able to take a shower (Just) Make their Dinner (Just) suffer darkness, thoughts of utter despair, I can imagine. Some may work with pain but are in pain all day, struggle to work, struggle to go for lunch, living a life where nobody seems to notice them. I can’t imagine

There are many ways we can be when we are ill in body or mind long-term and I believe we who suffer can help by doing one thing and that is “Doing something Human every day” That could be advice to a friend, helping someone with a problem, speaking to someone who lives alone and giving them comfort, speaking to someone in pain, helping a PC user fix a problem (I did this tonight for a friend) and in that moment I felt human

How do we define ” Doing something Human every day” in a way that does not come across patronising or smarmy or big-headed. For me it is the smallest things we can do that are the most helpful. I see it every day and I  try to do it every day, and I guess  for  a “moment” I feel human

Some days for me taking my Daughters to nursery school and going to the shop as well as take the dog out is amazing, the satisfaction I feel after being able to do this, knowing I will suffer badly with pain the next day, is brilliant. The next day I suffer, but I think “Look what I did yesterday” You see it’s the small things. Sometimes we try too hard to do the big things and suffer for it, keep it small, realistic and worthwhile

We live in a pain that makes us feel as if it is not fair and also hurts the people who love us and care for us, I am talking about the people we live with. I know mostly everyone with pain of any kind, body or mind can have an impact on their home, some realise it and some don’t. I think the more we realise it, talk about it like adults the better it can get. Again, the little things

We may live a cruel life some of us and feel inhuman, but I think we owe it to ourselves to feel human like anyone else. You suffer? Give it a try, do one good thing for another and see how you feel

To help another is to help yourself. Try it, what you got to lose? It could be as simple as liking something horrible online to saying hi to someone you know is alone

Be Human, it is your right

More love, Less Hate

Shaun

“Fifty Percent of Britain’s Population Obese by 2050 Leading to Massive Health Costs of Fifty Billion”

#AceHealthNews says according to latest health reports , the prognosis that only half the UK population will be obese by 2050 ”underestimate the true scale of the problem,” a new report has warned. The National Obesity Forum says Britain is in for the worst case obesity scenario.

What scientists call "Overweight" ch...

“It is entirely reasonable to conclude that the determinations of the 2007 Foresight Report (i.e. that half the population might be obese by 2050 at an annual cost of nearly 50 billion pounds), while shocking at the time, may now underestimate the scale of the problem,” the report by the National Obesity Forumstated.

“Obesity and weight management are a direct cause of many health problems and are already placing enormous demands on the NHS at a time when health resources are stretched like never before. The current situation is unsustainable,” Professor David Haslam, the forum’s chair said.

Hard-hitting action is needed to tackle the problem, experts say.

According to the UK Department of Health, most people are overweight or obese in England. This includes 61.9 percent of adults and 28 percent of children aged between 2 and 15.

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges’ 2013 report on obesity stated that the UK had become “the fat man of Europe”.

An abundance of obesity has been linked to three major factors: Fast food, ready meals and lack of exercise. People munch their high-calorie guilty-food pleasures, such as burgers and fries, and drink their beers and milk shakes sitting in front of their TV’s and PCs. A sedentary lifestyle is turning families into couch potatoes, with obesity guaranteed. What’s even worse is that the disease boosts the risk of heart disease, type-2 diabetes, cancer, hypertension, osteoarthritis and depression, just to name a few. According to the UK’s Faculty of Public Health, these diseases together cause over 10,000 obesity-related premature deaths annually in Britain.

“Studies and data published since 2007 demonstrate the increased prevalence of obesity, morbid obesity and wider weight management issues. They show how widespread poor nutrition and food choices are among the population, and how little knowledge exists about proper hydration and its importance,”David Haslam noted.

President Obama Expected to Announce Americans Can Keep Health Insurance Plans for Up to a Year

President Obama’s news conference today was notable for its multiple apologies. But it may have been just as powerful for its admissions.
We heard the president admit that the federal government screwed up on a huge project it might never been able to handle; that his own “credibility” is suffering after he misled the public on a core promise on which he built his signature accomplishment; that a broken website might not be completely fixed by a new, self-imposed deadline; and that he’s only now discovering such things as “insurance is complicated to buy.”
“We did fumble the ball,” the president said in a sports analogy he returned to four times in the course of more than 50 minutes he spent in the White House press briefing room.
Just as powerful was an admission he did not make explicitly, but did not have to: The president is clearly worried about saving his legacy project.
He’s seeking to implement an enormously complicated law with a still-broken, front-end portal. The back-end product – a remade nationwide health insurance market – might not work and, indeed, was complicated by the very fix he rolled out today.

And this is how we repay our elderly…

And this is how we repay our elderly by leaving them in spoiled clothes and carers sleeping on duty! As our care services deteriorate in the community and in the care homes!

#acehealthnews, #care-and-well-being, #health, #home-care

We Reap What We Sow

Many times l have used this saying but not so much as l have lately. The world is changing so fast that we struggle to comprehend the pace. But watching the destruction of a persons life through their own stupidty, is the worst! This is so in the community and the people receiving care, in so much as allowing themselves to lack humility, prevents them asking or receiving help! The typical examples vary widely, but relate to fluid levels, food and medication. Advising people who are either old or elderly (I will explain later the difference) that not drinking, eating or taking prescribed medication will make their overall health condition even worse, falls on deaf ears! Then when they suffer from incontinence, higher levels of health problems and have to drink more or take more tablets – guess who they blame, no no not themselves, everyone else! You see it is their stubborn pride that causes their care costs to rise and their need for a higher level of care. So back to old and elderly, the old person is full of pride whereas the elderly person is full of humilty! Then which one is usually healthy and full of beans, the elderly one as they listen with their heart, and the old one well simply “They Reap What They Sow” Amen
