Take Your Medicine Americans Week on October, 2017: How to learn Native American medicine men medicine?
Take Your Medicine Americans Week 2017. Nobel medical prize goes to 2 Americans, 1 German - CNN. or medicine starts a week
sorry. medicine ways are only taught to members of the specific community/nation that they belong to. and it is a lifetime of learning, not a books not a week not a year.
What is it about "socialised medicine" that scares Americans?
i dont get the issue with the americans and socialised medicine.
seriously, the NHS saves lives! i dont mind paying 20% tax as i see it as a good investment (i would like to know where the 60% thing came from?). i get alot of medical care and if i went to the states i dont think i could get insured!
if you dont want to be on the NHS, you go private. you don't get pampered on the NHS, but when im ill thats the last thing on my mind. yes there is waiting lists, but if you dont want to wait you go private.
and i dont know where the dirty thing comes from? every time i have been in hospital or visited it has always been clean. infact i have always seen someone cleaning everytime im there!
edit: btw i work 3 jobs at 60+ hours a week. my argument is i wont get insured due to pre existing medical conditions.
you really shouldn't believe what you see in the media
What explains higher obesity for Native Americans?
A study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine this week found that 1 in 5 American 4-year-olds is obese. The study, conducted by National Center for Education Statistics, indicates that Native American 4 year olds are twice as likely to be obese as non-Hispanic White or Asian children in the United States. Although obesity was higher among Black and Hispanic children, Native American preschoolers were more overweight than youngsters in other ethnic groups.
According to an Associated Press report, health officials blame genetic differences, a high rate of gestational diabetes among Native American mothers and the federal commodity food program (high in cheap carbohydrates) for this outcome. Other factors including poverty and less educated parents were also cited.
In an interview with AP, Jessica Burger, a nurse with the Little River Ottawa tribe of Michigan noted that exercise may not be a priority among families who are struggling to make ends meet.
