There are arguments for and against getting a flu shot. While you should discuss this with your doctor, Dr. Matthew Bogard's newest article gives an overview

Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

It is recommended to get a flu shot before the virus starts spreading in your community as it takes around 2 weeks for your body to build up a sufficient immune response to protect you from it.”

— Matthew Bogard, MD in Iowa & Nebraska

CHARITON, IOWA, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Like every year, it is Fall season and that means that the flu season is upon us. Some of you may have already gotten the flu vaccine, but for those who haven’t it’s not too late. In his newest article, Matthew Bogard, MD of Iowa provides an overview. As with all medical matters, information is just that – information. When in doubt, please review this with your medical doctor who understands your specific medical history.

For the most part, we underestimate the seriousness of the flu and place it next to the common cold. This is a common misconception, but just so you know, the Influenza virus is considerably more serious in nature. As per CDC estimates, it has caused between 140,000 to 710,000 hospitalizations and as many as 12,000 and 56,000 deaths annually in the U.S. since 2010. A yearly flu vaccine is the first step towards gaining protection against this disease and the CDC recommends it for everyone who is 6 months of age and older.

What can the flu do?

Initially, flu viruses will infect your nose, throat and lungs, but it can go on to cause a wide range of complications. While sinus and ear infections are moderate complications, Pneumonia is a serious flu complication that arises either due to the flu infection itself or if you’re simultaneously infected by bacteria as well as the flu virus.

Other more serious complications include inflammation of the heart, brain or muscle. It can also cause multi-organ failure. An extreme inflammatory response can result in sepsis.

In the past 7 flu seasons, influenza vaccination prevented around 5.3 million illnesses and 85,000 hospitalizations and as per the CDC a mere 5% increase in the number of vaccinations could have further prevented as many as 483,000 influenza illnesses/. It would have stopped another two hundred thousand plus influenza-associated medical visits, and around seven thousand influenza-associated hospitalizations across the U.S.A.

Who is at risk?

While anyone can get the flu, some people are susceptible to a more severe form of infection. These include:
* Children younger than 5 years old, particularly those that are younger than 2 years old
* People older than 65 years old
* People suffering from asthma or chronic lung disease
* People with neurological conditions, heart disease and those suffering from blood, liver, kidney, endocrine and metabolic disorders
* People whose immune system has recently been compromised due to an illness
* Pregnant women

How effective is the flu shot?

Since there are different strains of the influenza virus each year, the flu vaccine needs to be modified accordingly to target the particular strain that will circulate that year. However, there is no way of knowing which strain it might be. Thus, the effectiveness of the vaccine is somewhat compromised. Despite this, the CDC still heavily recommends that you get the flu vaccine as it offers at least some degree of protection even if it’s not completely effective in preventing the disease. Also, since the influenza virus is transmittable, it is logical to assume that if a fewer number of people get sick, then the virus won’t be able to penetrate as deeply and spread.

Besides CDC, other professional medical groups like the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Foundation of Infectious Diseases and the American Medical Association also recommend an annual flu vaccine.

What flu vaccines are available for 2018-2019?

There are several options for the 2018-2019 flu season, these include:

* Standard dose flu shots given into the muscle. A needle is used to inject these, but for some people between the ages of 18 and 64 years old, a jet injector can be used.
* Shots made with adjuvant. These are suitable for older people.
* Shots made the help of virus previously grown via cell culture technique.
* Shots made using vaccine production technology. These do not employ the flu virus and follow a different mechanism.
* The nasal spray vaccine, also known as the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV). This is recommended for use in non-pregnant individuals between the ages of 2 and 49 years. People with underlying medical conditions are advised against using the nasal spray flu vaccine.
What are the side-effects?

The influenza vaccine is made from an inactivated or weakened version of the influenza virus so you might experience flu-like symptoms post vaccination. These will subside however, and you won’t suffer from a full bout of the flu. There may also be some redness or swelling in the arm that was administered the flu shot, and low-grade fever. The side-effects are not really a matter of concern because really it just means that the vaccine is working and will be able to protect you from the actual virus.

Will last year’s flu shot work?

No. There are two reasons for this. First, the immune response generated by last year’s vaccine has gradually declined. Therefore, you need to be injected with a new one for continued protection.

Another thing with the flu virus is that it is constantly changing in form. The flu vaccine is also analyzed accordingly and redesigned to combat new forms of the virus each year.

Where can you get one?

Flu vaccines are easily available at doctor’s offices, clinics, pharmacies and college health centers. Many employers and schools offer them as well.

It is recommended to get a flu shot before the virus starts spreading in your community as it takes around 2 weeks for your body to build up a sufficient immune response to protect you from it. If you’re looking to get one, it is best not to wait around and get one as soon as possible to ensure maximum protection.

When should you avoid a flu shot?

While the CDC recommends that anyone older than 6 months get the flu shot, including pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions, there are exceptions. If you’re severely allergic to the components in the flu shot then you should not get vaccinated. If you have ever had the Guillan-Barré Syndrome (An immune disorder), then consult your doctor before getting a flu shot.

One of the components involved in the manufacturing of flu vaccines are eggs but as per the CDC, even if you suffer from egg allergies, you can still get the flu shot. In case your allergies are serious and you are concerned side effects from vaccinations, please consult your doctor.

Massive Go Vegan World Advertising Campaign in Ireland and the UK

Go Vegan World on the London Underground

UK Bus ad

Over 2000 Innovative Vegan Ads

The Go Vegan World ads remind us of our victims; they remind us that each one of us is morally obliged to stop using other animals and go vegan.”

— Sandra Higgins, Founder & Director, Go Vegan World

DUBLIN LONDON, IRELAND & UK, IRELAND & UK, December 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Go Vegan World is running a massive campaign across Ireland and the UK during Christmas and the New Year. It features over 2000 innovative ads that encourage people who are not yet vegan to consider becoming vegan.
Commenting on the campaign, Founder and Director of Go Vegan World, Sandra Higgins, states:
It is important at the outset to define veganism as a way of living that protects the rights of other sentient animals. Other animals share our capacity for physical and psychological feelings. They have brains that enable them to be aware of themselves and their world. Therefore, in recognition of these facts, they share our fundamental rights not to be owned, used, harmed or killed.
Christmas is traditionally a time of good will, generosity and concern for the less fortunate and the oppressed. Our oppression of other animals goes unnoticed for the most part simply because they are members of different species to us. But being different is not a justification for ignoring their exploitation and neither is it a justification for exploiting them in the first place.
When confronted with the mess we have created with respect to environmental destruction and climate change, and when we realise that we are violently oppressing defenceless, innocent beings, it is tempting for many people to take refuge through denial, minimisation and failure to act. We tend to dissociate from the truth that demands that we change, pushing facts to the back of our minds for the short-term gain of convenience. The Go Vegan World ads remind us of our victims; they remind us that each one of us is morally obliged to stop using other animals and go vegan.
The campaign will run throughout December and January in Ireland and the UK. It includes 650 UK bus ads and the first large screen vegan video ads in Ireland. Ads will also appear on billboards, streets, bus shelters, bathrooms, the London Underground, Bus and Train stations in Ireland, in newspapers and magazines, and on social media.

Increased Demand For Water Soluble Fertilizers Is An Opportunity for Fertilizer Manufacturers, New Study Shows.

Global Fertilizer and Chemicals Market Annual Growth Rates 2014-2022

Global Fertilizer and Chemicals Market Annual Growth Rates 2014-2022

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, December 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The water-soluble fertilizer market is growing rapidly and defying the wider fertilizer market trend, Fertilizer Global Market Opportunities And Strategies To 2022, a report from The Business Research Company, shows. The favorable trend for water-soluble fertilizers is due to the increased commercial cultivation of high value crops to meet rising demand for safe and organic food. These fertilizers are specifically designed to be used in fertigation systems such as sprinkler and drip irrigation systems. Increasing awareness among farmers in developing countries of technology-based agricultural practices is also driving water soluble fertilizer sales. The rapid growth of the water-soluble fertilizer market contrasts with the larger chemicals-based fertilizer market in which sales growth has barely kept pace with the growth of GDP. That applies both globally and in most of the biggest regional markets for fertilizers. Global fertilizer sales are also growing significantly more slowly than the wider chemicals market of which they are a part.

One reason for the slow growth of the wider fertilizer industry is that the 28 member countries of the European Union have all introduced stringent regulations controlling the use of chemical fertilizers. A European Union safety regulation called REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) stipulates that all chemical substances including fertilizers must be registered. Another regulation, CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures) aims to ensure the safety of consumers and workers. These regulations tend to increase operational costs for fertilizer companies, so affecting fertilizer prices and restraining the market. Lengthy procedures to get approvals from certification bodies are also increasing the overall costs associated with fertilizers.

China, too, until 2017 easily the largest consuming country for fertilizers, worth nearly a quarter of the global total, has now introduced strict controls. Regulations on the market such as these will hold back global growth going forward to below global GDP growth and substantially below the growth of the crop market to which fertilizer sales have previously been closely linked.

Stop Foodborne Illness

Dr. Patricia Griffin and Amanda Craten Join the Board of Stop Foodborne Illness

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stop Foodborne Illness, the national, nonprofit, public health organization representing individuals and families directly affected by serious foodborne illness and dedicated to preventing illness and death from foodborne pathogens, has announced that two influential leaders in the food safety movement, Amanda Craten and Dr. Patricia Griffin, have joined the organization’s board.

Amanda Craten is a mother, an educator, and a food safety advocate from Arizona. She has experienced the impact of foodborne illness directly—her youngest of three children, Noah, was a victim of the Foster Farms Salmonella outbreak in 2013. Her family has been fighting to make change in the food industry ever since. They were the first to take a poultry producer through civil trial and win.

“I am thrilled to help guide this increasingly visible and influential organization,” said Craten. “Food safety has made huge strides in recent years but there is still much work to be done. I want to encourage families who have survived foodborne illness to become architects of change. Stop Foodborne Illness is committed to that principle and hopefully, through our work, more and more families will join the fight to make food safe for everyone.”

Craten is currently a Special Education Assistant for Resource at Desert Palms Elementary School and is working towards her bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Elementary Education at Northern Arizona University. Craten’s daughter, Anna, likes to evoke the words of author Heidi Wills: “You can choose to be affected by the world, or you can choose to affect the world."

“Amanda brings the critical knowledge that only comes from personal experience as well as such enthusiasm for our mission to educate, influence policy, and collaborate with key stakeholders to make food safer,” said Lauren Bush, board co-chair of Stop Foodborne Illness. “We are so pleased to have her with us. She is a strong advocate for all families and her voice will be invaluable as we encourage everyone to become more engaged in this work with us.”

Dr. Patricia M. Griffin is Chief of the Enteric Diseases Epidemiology Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The branch conducts surveillance for cases of illness and for outbreaks, does studies of human illness due to bacterial agents such as Salmonella and E. coli O157, tracks trends in these illnesses, and analyzes data on the relationship of illnesses to particular foods. Dr. Griffin has supervised epidemiologic investigations throughout the United States and overseas. She has authored or co-authored over 235 journal articles, book chapters, and other publications.

“Dr. Griffin is one of our nation’s most outstanding and credible food safety leaders,” said Michael Taylor, Stop Foodborne Illness board co-chair and former FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine. “Her foodborne illness expertise will help guide our organization as we work to build our partnerships with all those in the public and private sectors who share our commitment to preventing foodborne illness.”

“Helping all parties understand the major sources of and trends in foodborne illness is one way that Stop Foodborne Illness can help foster informed decisions by industry and government on policies and strategies that result in safer food,” said Dr. Griffin.

Dr. Griffin holds an adjunct appointment in the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health. She received an MD degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, trained in internal medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, trained in gastroenterology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, in mucosal immunology at the University of Pennsylvania, and in epidemiology with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology, is a Fellow of the Infectious Disease Society of America and a member of the American Epidemiological Society.

Workers’ Compensation Attorney for Vineland New Jersey

Each Workers’ Compensation Claim is different and needs to be handled carefully by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

You are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you sustain a workplace injury or an occupational illness preventing you from returning to a job.”

— Craig Altman, Esq.

VINELAND, NJ, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

You are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you sustain a workplace injury or an occupational illness preventing you from returning to a job according to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law. Benefits from a workplace accident can be permanent disability benefits, temporary disability benefits, or death benefits.

Each Workers’ Compensation Claim is different and needs to be handled carefully by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. If not, you may lose wages, compensation for medical bills, and other damages that as an injured worker you deserve.

WHO YOU ARE
You’re from Vineland, New Jersey. Since 1952 workers like you have been the tough, hardworking and independent backbone of the town’s workforce. From “The Avenue” to the Boulevard, you represent your town with the same work ethic that Vineland-native Mike Trout brings to every at-bat. But just like Trout can hit the Disabled List, Vineland workers can also get injured on the job. If you do get hurt at work, you’re going to need to review your options carefully and consider workers’ compensation benefits.

You are the heart and soul of Vineland, New Jersey. You are its workforce.

You may be a teacher, working at D’Ippolito Elementary School and suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or neck/back injuries from repetitive grading too many papers long into the night.

You could be a part of the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society devoting your life to protecting the cultural identity of Vineland’s past. But who protects you when you are injured at work? Under certain circumstances the “benefits” promised to workers may get denied or not correctly cover accidents at work. This is where trained workers’ compensation attorneys who are familiar with New Jersey’s Worker’s Compensation Laws step in to assist.

You may be a DJ working at one of Vineland’s locally-licensed radio stations such as WVLT (92.1) or WMIZ (1270). Injuries happen everywhere, even in showbiz! The most common injuries for media and communications industry workers include:

Strains and sprains from repetitive trauma
Slip, trip and fall accidents
Being struck by a falling object
Carpal tunnel or back injuries from repetitive motion
Being caught in or injured by a machine at the office
Accidents involving tools

A work-related injury can happen at any time. You were doing your job, handling your business and bringing home the bacon. But then you got hurt at work, and now your family’s financial future is in the hands of strangers. Choose your workers’ compensation attorney wisely. Don’t play games with your benefits or wait to file your claim. The insurance company does not have your interests at heart and is not on your side, but a skilled workers’ comp lawyer does.

At Green Relief, Mr. Pegg will play a critical role in the strategic direction of the company's finances as it scales up its production of medical cannabis to better serve a rapidly growing patient-base.

"With Green Relief's unique use of aquaponics to produce its products, and a purpose-driven and passionate team behind me, I look forward to working on the cutting edge of an exciting industry," Mr. Pegg says.

Presently, Green Relief operates from a 30,000-square-foot facility in Hamilton. Plans for expansion include the recent acquisition of a 100,000-square-foot production facility in Stoney Creek, Ont., which will increase the company's annual output from 2,800 kg to about 17,800 kg.

Construction of a 240,000-square-foot production facility at the company's original Hamilton site is also underway, as is a 25,000-square-foot facility on an adjacent property that will be used for research and development.

"With robust plans for expansion in place, Andrew's appointment to CFO is timely, and will help drive Green Relief's success into the near, and distant, future," Mr. Bravo says.

About Green Relief

Based in Hamilton, Ont., Green Relief is Canada's leading licensed producer of medical cannabis using aquaponics to sustainably grow its plants. Aquaponics is a closed-loop system that combines aquaculture (raising fish) with hydroponics (the soilless cultivation of plants). As a result, aquaponics uses up to 90 per cent less water than conventional agriculture, while also producing 10 times the crop yield per hectare, and an end product free from synthetic fertilizers and harmful pesticides. Additionally, once the system's fish reach market size, Green Relief donates the protein source to a food rescue service that delivers meals to those in need. Over the last three years, Green Relief has donated more than 40,000 fish through this initiative. At Green Relief, the mission is simple: helping patients improve their quality of life while also being environmentally responsible, and giving back to the community.

Garrett Yrigoyen Bio: California native, Garrett Yrigoyen, discovered his love for the great outdoors as a young boy when his parents would take his family on camping trips in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains. It was there, at the age of 4, where his addiction to reel-in fish began. A handful of years later, Garrett began hunting dove and pheasant in the very fields that his father farmed. For a number of years education and sports took precedence over the opportunity to hunt and fish. In 2007 he was the male senior all-around athlete for Sierra High School in Manteca, CA. In junior college, he started at third base for the San Joaquin Delta College Mustangs baseball team who placed second at the California state championship. He then moved on to the University of Nevada Reno where he obtained a degree while starting each year at third base for the Wolfpack baseball team. While living in Nevada, he developed a passion for hunting chukar high up in the mountains and fly fishing on local rivers, streams, and lakes chasing rainbow, brown, golden and Lahontan cutthroat trout. He was the last man standing on Season 14 of ABC’s the Bachelorette with Becca Kufrin and is now pursing his passion for fishing and hunting with us at Gage Outdoor.

The TLC methodology refers to this requirement only. TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography) analysis is currently not allowed under current law for the primary testing of commercial products for sale. However, it does not cover private testing of TLC by home growers, end users, and others wanting to test their own products. Also, TLC can be used as a preliminary guide by commercial growers and manufacturers before sending their products off to be tested in a state-licensed testing facility Note: the date December 31, 2018 when the final testing requirements go into effect.

Stop Foodborne Illness has one holiday wish: Learn more about food safety so you can prevent family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

I will learn more about food safety so I can prevent my family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

— Stop Foodborne Illness

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the season of “comfort and joy” approaches, Stop Foodborne Illness (www.stopfoodborneillness.org), a national, nonprofit, public health organization dedicated to preventing illness and death from foodborne pathogens, has one-holiday wish—that you make this important New Year’s resolution:

“I will learn more about food safety so I can prevent my family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

Foodborne illness is no joke, as can be witnessed by the recent nationwide ban on Romaine lettuce issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Harmful pathogens have become an ever-increasing threat in our food supply, causing serious illness and even death among people with weaker immune systems such as young children and older adults. In 2011, the CDC estimated that each year, roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne illness.

The facts are staggering: As of November 28, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued approximately 95 food recalls, market withdrawals and safety alerts involving foodborne illness during 2018. That is almost 2 per week, and many have affected people in multiple states.

You may be surprised to learn that the FDA’s list includes products from nearly all food categories! In fact, we’re going to list them here: tahini, breakfast cereal, cheese, asparagus, cake mix, pistachios, veggie sandwiches, twice-baked potatoes, ice cream, ham rolls, biscuits, rolls, salads, subs, ham, macadamia nuts, cage-free eggs, dry whey powder, bread, crackers, cracker sandwiches, pasta salad, poke kits, sprouting mix, vegetable trays, fresh melons, frozen broccoli, frozen whole tilapia fish, fruit mix, organic nut mix, wild Coho smoked salmon, microgreen mixes, ice pops, smoked salmon spread, romaine lettuce, eggs, organic amaranth flour, coconut, pastries, coconut flour, nutritional yeast, pumpkin seeds, deli products, alfalfa sprouts, chia seeds, cardamom pods, pork, bison, cream cheese, and frozen green beans and mixed vegetables.

If you’re a pet owner, you should also know that the FDA’s list also includes 25 pathogen-related dog and cat food recalls and alerts in 2018. Many of these items were of the “raw” variety. Foodborne illness in pets can be just as serious and life-threatening.

“We must attack foodborne illness on many fronts and in many ways,” said Lauren Bush, board co-chair of Stop Foodborne Illness. “Producers, retailers and consumers must be more vigilant than ever in identifying and preventing harmful pathogens in our food supply. We cannot stress enough how important it is for everyday people to be knowledgeable about foodborne illness—what it is, where it comes from, how to maintain a food-safe household and how to be a smart food shopper.”

“At the food industry level, food safety organizations such as Stop, trade associations, food producers and government agencies are working harder than ever to encourage safe food policies and practices at all levels, but certainly much more can be done,” said Michael Taylor, Stop Foodborne Illness board co-chair and former FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine. “We must all be committed to very high food safety standards and make sure those standards are enforced through the food chain.”

A DOZEN THINGS YOU CAN DO TO BE SMART ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS IN 2019
