An NIH study indicates that regular use of aspirin may reduce the risk of ovarian cancer

Women who take aspirin daily may reduce the risk of ovarian cancer by 20 percent, according to a study by scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) . However, it is necessary to conduct more research before we can make clinical recommendations. The study was published on February 6, 2014, in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute .

An estimated 22,240 American women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2014 and 14,030 will die from the disease. Ovarian cancer in early stage can be treated successfully. However, because the symptoms associated with ovarian cancer may be similar to those of other common conditions, such as diagnosing digestive and bladder disorders, often not determined until the disease is advanced.Ovarian cancer in advanced stage has a destitute prognosis and treatment options are limited. That is why prevention strategies can be of great importance in controlling this disease.

It has been proven that chronic or persistent inflammation increases the risk of cancer and other diseases. It is clear from previous studies, the anti-inflammatory properties of aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without aspirin could reduce the risk of cancer in general. However, studies examining whether the use of these drugs may influence the risk of ovarian cancer have yielded inconclusive results for the most part. This is the largest study to date to evaluate the relationship between these drugs and the risk of ovarian cancer.

Doctors and Nicolas Wentzensen Britton Trabert, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, NCI, and colleagues analyzed data collected from 12 epidemiological studies of large volume in order to investigate whether women who took aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) without aspirin or acetaminophen had a lower risk of ovarian cancer. These 12 studies (nine of them crazye ??in the U.S.) were part of the consortium of the Ovarian Cancer Association ( Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium ). Scientists evaluated the benefits of these drugs in approximately 8000 women with ovarian cancer and about 12,000 women without the disease.

Among study participants who reported taking aspirin regularly or not: 18 percent used aspirin, 24 percent consumed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without aspirin and 16 percent took acetaminophen. Researchers found that participants who reported having used aspirin daily had a risk of ovarian cancer 20 percent lower than those who had taken aspirin less than once a week. The conclusions were less clear with regard to the non-aspirin NSAIDs, among which a variety of drugs is included. In this case, scientists observed an ovarian cancer risk 10 percent lower in women who took NSAIDs at least once a week, compared with those who consumed these drugs less often. However, this result was not statistically significant within the range. In contrast to the results on aspirin and NSAIDs, acetaminophen consumption (which is not an anti-inflammatory drug) was not associated with a reduced risk of ovarian cancer.

The focus of this study adds to a growing list that includes other malignancies, such as colorectal cancer and other cancers that seem to be able to be prevented by the use of aspirin. "Our study suggests that treatment with aspirin, which have proven to protect against heart attack, could also reduce the risk of ovarian cancer effect. Though the results are of great interest, should not influence current clinical practice . further study is necessary to analyze the delicate balance between risks and benefits of this drug with potential chemopreventive properties, as well as other studies to identify the mechanism by which aspirin could reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, "Trabert said.

Adverse effects of daily aspirin use include, upper gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke.Consequently, scientists warn that daily aspirin therapy should only be undertaken with the approval of a physician.

A House Child-Proof Risk !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12 Safety Devices to Protect Your Children

Every year children are injured by hazards found in the home and around it. The good news is that the risk of injury can be reduced or avoided if child safety devices are used and reminded older children who activate or connect the devices after turning them off or disconnected.

Most of these safety devices are relatively inexpensive and are readily available in hardware stores, playground equipment, supermarkets, drug stores that sell products to make home improvements, on the Internet and through catalogs. Safety devices should be firm enough to prevent access of children and at the same time easy to use for an adult.

To be effective, they must be installed properly. Follow the installation instructions carefully. Also, remember that no device is completely childproof; have been known to youngsters who have found a way to disable or disconnect.

Here are some child safety devices that can help reduce injuries in young children. The red numbers correspond to those found in the drawing on the back of the house.

Here are some child safety devices that can help reduce injuries in young children. The red numbers correspond to those found in the drawing on the back of the house.

 

1.

Use  latches and locks  on cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, bathrooms and other areas to help prevent incidents of poisoning and other injuries. Install locks and latches on cabinets and drawers can help prevent children from gaining access to medicines, cleaning products, matches or cigarette lighters, as well as knives and other sharp objects.

Even products with safety caps must be locked and kept out of reach of children. This packaging is not childproof.Buy locks and latches that can be easily installed and used by an adult, but at the same time be firm enough to withstand children halons.

2.

Use  Safety Gates  to help prevent falls down stairs and to keep children from entering the bedroom and other areas that are potentially dangerous.

Install safety gates that children can not be removed easily, but that adults can open and close easily. At the top of the stairs only use gates that screw to the wall. Use safety gates that meet current safety standards. Replace old doors that have a "V" as the space between bars is large enough so that the head and neck of a child entrapment.

3.

Use  Knob Covers Doors and Locks  to help prevent children from entering areas that are potentially dangerous. The knob covers and door locks can help keep children away from dangerous places.

Make sure the guard door knob to be firm and to allow an adult to open the door quickly in an emergency.

4.

Use  anti-scald devices  for faucets and shower and set the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to help prevent burns from hot water. The devices used to prevent burns for adjusting the temperature of the water can help reduce the chance of burns.

5.

Use  SMOKE ALARMS  at every level of your home, inside each bedroom and outside sleeping areas used to alert your family in case of fire. Examine the smoke alarms once a month to make sure they are working. Replace the batteries at least once a year or consider using batteries that last 10 years.

6.

Use  Window Guards Window and Mesh Networks and Security  to help prevent falls from windows, balconies and terraces. Check these safety devices frequently to make sure they are secure and properly installed and maintained properly. Do not open windows more than four inches. The space between the bars of the grates should not be more than four inches. If you have security bars for windows, make sure at least one window in each room can be easily used for escape in case of fire. The metal nets are not effective for preventing children from falling out of windows.

7.

Use  Receipts edges or corners  to help prevent injuries from falls against sharp edges of furniture and fireplaces. Ensure that guards are tight on the furniture and in the corners of the chimney.

8.

Use  safety covers on outlets Plates  to help prevent electrocution incidents. Safety covers for outlets and plates can help protect children from electrical shock and possible electrocution. Make sure children can not remove the safety covers that easily and are large enough to prevent children can choke on them. If you replace the receptacles, buy those that are resistant to handling children.

9.

Use a  Detector Alarm Carbon Monoxide (CO)  to help prevent incidents of CO poisoning. All consumers should install alarms carbon monoxide near sleeping areas in their homes. Replace the batteries at least once a year.

10.

CPSC recommends the use  of curtains and blinds without cords  in homes where small children were strangled to prevent it. Children can wrap the cord around the neck or reach a cord that seem inaccessible and entangled in the loop formed. If your windows have curtains and blinds 2000 or previous years and can not buy new slip, call the Security Council Curtains and Blinds (Window Coverings Safety Council, WCSC) at 800-506-4636 or visit  www.windowcoverings. org  to request a free repair kit. A potentially deadly bond can be formed in the blinds when a child pulls the cord up inside the blind. Consumers should know that the repair kit WSSC does not eliminate the danger of the cords hanging freely from many shades and blinds common.

11.

Use  fasteners to Avoid Fallen Furniture and Appliances . Furniture, TVs and ranges can tip over and crush children. Deaths and injuries occur when children climb onto, lie down or push on television stands, cabinets, bookcases, desks, chests and stoves. For added security, anchor these products to the floor or attach them to the wall. Independent stoves should be installed with supports to prevent rollovers.

12.

Use  Layers of Protection Around Pools and Spas . It is essential that the pool and spa are completely surrounded by a wall. This should include a fence 4 feet tall and has gates that are closed and secure themselves.If the house is one side of the barrier, the doors leading to the pool should have an alarm or the pool should have a power safety cover. The pool alarms can serve as an additional layer of protection.

Sliding glass doors must be secured after each use is not an effective barrier to prevent access to the pool.

Standards OSHA: Occupational

OSHA standards are regulations that describe the methods that employers must use to protect their employees from hazards and risks. There are OSHA standards for the construction , agriculturemarine operations , and general industry. latter category are the standards that apply to most workplaces. Standards limit the amount of hazardous chemicals to which workers can be exposed;require the use of certain safe practices and equipment; and require employers to monitor hazards and keep reports of injuries and illnesses in the workplace. Examples of OSHA standards include requirements to: provide fall protection; prevent the collapse of excavations; prevent some infectious diseases; ensure that workers entering confined spaces safely; prevent employees from being exposed to harmful substances such as asbestos; put guards on machines; provide respirators or other safety equipment; and provide training for certain dangerous jobs. Employers must also conform to the General Duty Clause of the OSHA Act ​​requires employers to keep their workplace free of hazards that are recognized as serious. This clause is usually cited when no OSHA standard applies directly to danger.

Workers or their representatives, may file a complaint and request OSHA to conduct an inspection of your workplace if they believe there is a serious danger or your employer is not complying with OSHA standards. A worker can tell OSHA to keep your identity confidential. 's a violation of the OSH Act an employee is fired, demoted, transferred, or discriminated against in any way for filing a complaint or exercise other rights of OSHA. You can make a complaint online , download the form and mail or fax to the office of the nearest OSHA ; or by calling 1-800-321-OSHA (6742). Most of the complaints received from the Internet can be resolved informally by phone with your employer. Written complaints that are signed by an employee or representative and sent to the OSHA office nearest are more likely to result in an OSHA inspection at your workplace.

When an inspector finds violations of OSHA standards or serious hazards, OSHA can issue citations and fines. A citation includes the methods that an employer can use to fix the problem, and the date when these corrective actions must be completed. Workers have the right to challenge only the date when the problem has to be solved. But employers have the right to dispute whether there is a violation, or any other part of the citation. Workers or their representatives must notify OSHA if they want to be involved in the appeal process, if the employer challenges a subpoena. "If you send a complaint requesting an OSHA inspection, you are entitled to a copy of the results of the OSHA inspection and request that they be revised if OSHA decides not to issue citations."

Employer Responsibilities

Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace. Employers MUST provide a workplace free of serious hazards and follow all health and safety standards of OSHA .Employers have to find and fix security issues and health. OSHA also requires employers to try to eliminate or reduce hazards by making changes in working conditions, rather than simply wear masks, gloves, ear plugs, or other types of personal protective equipment (PPE for short in English). Switching to safer chemicals, processes to trap harmful gases, or using ventilation systems to clean the air are examples of effective ways to eliminate or reduce risks. Employers also MUST:
  • Inform employees about the dangers workout, tags, alarms, color-coded systems, information sheets on chemicals and other methods.
  • Save accurate reports of injuries and work-related diseases .
  • Testing in the workplace, such as air sampling, required by some OSHA standards

If you have been punished or discriminated against for asserting your rights, you must file a complaint with OSHA within 30 days of the alleged retaliation have occurred to most complaints. No form is required, but you must send a letter or call the office nearest OSHA explaining the situation and the alleged discrimination.

What if there is a dangerous situation at work?

If you believe that your work conditions are not healthy or safe, we recommend that you notify your employer of the conditions, if possible. You can make a complaint with OSHA about a hazardous job at any time. But you should not leave the job site only because you made ​​a complaint. If the condition clearly presents a risk of death or serious physical harm, there is insufficient time for OSHA consider, and, whenever possible, you have shown the condition to your employer, you may have a legal right reused to work in a situation where you would be exposed to danger.
