Resources for quitting

People who quit smoking can significantly reduce your risk of illness or premature death. The younger of quitting smoking, the more likely you are to avoid health problems. The following resources can help you quit smoking:


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 poor 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 made ??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.

If you use cell phones, pay attention to this limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy.

Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).

Consumer Publications

SAR Information from individual manufacturers can be found on the below websites:

FCC SAR Database - You can usually find the SAR value of a cellular phone through the FCC database if you can get the FCC ID number from the instrument.

The FCC ID number is usually shown somewhere on the case of the phone or device. In many cases, you will have to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once you have the number proceed as follows. Go to the following Web address:www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid. Once you are there you will see instructions for inserting the FCC ID number. Enter the FCC ID number (in two parts as indicated: "Grantee Code" is comprised of the first three characters, the "Equipment Product Code" is the remainder of the FCC ID). Then click on "Start Search." The grant of equipment authorization for this particular ID number should appear. The highest SAR values reported in the equipment certification test data are usually included in the comments section of the grant of equipment certification.

Cockroaches

Droppings or excretions of cockroaches can trigger asthma.
  • Do not leave food or garbage out environmental exposure.
  • Store food in tightly sealed containers.
  • Clean all food waste or spilled liquids immediately.

  • Access to copies of your medical records ;

Who covers the OSHA

Private sector workers Most employees in the country are under the jurisdiction of the OSHA law. OSHA covers employers and private sector workers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and other jurisdictions of the United States, either directly by the OSHA Federal, or anOSHA-approved state program . State Programs health and safety should be at least as effective as federal OSHA program. To find the contact information for the Office of Federal or state program of the nearest OSHA, see the map of the regional offices. Employees of state and local government Employees who work for state and local governments are not covered by the federal OSHA, but have protection under the OSHA law if they work in states that have a state program approved by OSHA. Four states and a territory of the USA. UU. have OSHA-approved plans that cover only public sector employees. These include: Connecticut, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and the Virgin Islands. Workers in the private sector in these four states and the Virgin Islands are covered by federal OSHA. Federal workers Federal agencies must have a safety and health program that meets the same standards as private employers. Although OSHA does not assign fines to federal agencies, yes the monitors and responds to complaints from their workers. The States Postal Service (USPS) is covered by OSHA. Not covered by the OSHA Act:
  • Freelance workers;

  • Workplace hazards that are regulated by another federal agency (eg Administration Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Coast Guard)

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 can request that OSHA inspect your workplace

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
