Thursday, Aug 28, 2008

Diabetes Health just returned from the annual meeting of the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), in Washington, D.C., August 6 through 9, 2008. We joined 3,500 attendees in, as AADE President, Amparo Gonzalez, RN, BSN, CDE, said, “taking on the challenges of delivering diabetes education in today’s healthcare environment.”

Marie McCarren attended a session titled “Practical Resources for Vegan Diet Instruction for Diabetes” by Caroline Trapp, MSN, APRN, BC-ADM, CDE, director of Diabetes Education and Care, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Washington, D.C.

The good news? You won’t need to count calories or restrict portions. You may feel that you are eating a lot, but you’ll probably be consuming fewer calories than you did when you were eating meat and sugary foods.

Every year millions of teenage girls become pregnant.  Many will opt for an abortion.  Others will have a child years before they are ready for motherhood.  Some will put their child up for adoption shortly after birth.  In addition, each year millions of teenagers will contract a venereal disease.   All of these consequences disrupt young lives and create a burden on society.  Most sex education programs are intended to reduce the incidence of these consequences.

Elimating Lead in Household Drinking Water PDF Print Email this article
Written by Bright Future Staff   
Friday, Jun 27, 2008

Problem:  Many areas are reporting an increase in unacceptable levels of lead in drinking water as it comes out of the tap in people’s homes.  A change in EPA regulations for treating drinking water calls for substances to be added to water that leech lead out of pipes and the solder used to bond these pipes.  Health officials are seeing substantial amounts of lead in the blood of individuals that consume this water.  This in turn was traced to an increase in lead poisoning cases and lead related health problems.

Solution:  Rebuilding all the piping used in the distribution of drinking water is simply not feasible.  Until EPA changes guidelines consumers can  protect their families by testing their water with a new inexpensive test kit, and if elevated levels of lead are found install a quality water filter.  Most household water filters do a fine job of filtering out lead.  Cooking with lead infused water concentrates lead levels in food.  Be sure to filter the water used for cooking as well as drinking water.

Problem:  In many impoverished areas clean drinking water is often scarce.  Health problems are rampant in areas where local citizens have no choice but to drink foul water.  The modern water filters that are capable of cleaning up contaminated water are much too expensive for the people who live in these areas.

Solution: A new low-cost easy to use personal water filter has become available that is capable of filtering out bacteria and parasites.  This filter is designed to filter over 700 liters of water, enough for one person for a year.

Below two articles have been reprinted.  The first is designed for non-technical readers.  The second article contains technical details about how this device works provided by the manufacturer.  Note that since the second article was printed the LifeStraw filtering device has gone into full production.
