Mysterious hemorrhagic fever in Angola has killed 39

Colorado teens see marijuana as less risky, new statewide research shows

first_imgSmart Colorado June 2016Family First Comment: Disturbing trend “Colorado voters were promised marijuana would be kept out of the hands of Colorado kids.  And yet, after  three and half years of commercialized recreational marijuana and after over six years of commercialized medical marijuana, that has yet to happen,” said Diane Carlson, a co-founder of Smart Colorado. “Meanwhile, the perception of harm from consuming marijuana for high school students is on the declineFewer Colorado high school students view regular marijuana use as risky behavior, according the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS), which was released today.Only 48 percent of high school students surveyed saw marijuana use as risky in 2015, compared to 54 percent of those surveyed in the HKCS survey two years earlier.While youth tobacco use has declined, high school marijuana use inched up, the HKCS data shows.Twenty one percent of Colorado high school students used marijuana at least once in the last month, the HKCS shows. Even more troubling, high school use is reported as high as 30.1 percent in some parts of Colorado, according to the HKCS.Meanwhile, only 9 percent of Colorado high schools students reported smoking a cigarette at least once in the last 30 days.The HKCS collects health information every odd year from Colorado public school students. The data released today was collected in 2015.While the HKCS says Colorado high school youth marijuana use is in line with national data, Colorado ranks first in the nation for past month marijuana usage by those 12-17 years old, according to National Surveys on Drug Use and Health data released in December by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.“Colorado voters were promised marijuana would be kept out of the hands of Colorado kids.  And yet, after  three and half years of commercialized recreational marijuana and after over six years of commercialized medical marijuana, that has yet to happen,” said Diane Carlson, a co-founder of Smart Colorado.“Meanwhile, the perception of harm from consuming marijuana for high school students is on the decline according to the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey, which is deeply concerning as much of Colorado’s marijuana has become an increasingly different, harder, stronger drug,” Carlson added.“Youth marijuana use can have lifelong implications.  The risks, which include psychosis, suicide, drug addiction and lower IQs, have been reported based on research on much lower THC potencies than are typically sold on Colorado’s commercial market. That means the risks and harms for Colorado kids using today’s pot are far more serious and potentially long lasting. And yet too few Colorado kids are aware of just how harmful and risky today’s high-potency pot can be.”http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/?u=77b1e1ef51580bd28824e2f5e&id=847b4e9f0alast_img read more

First cancer treatment facility opens in Nevis

first_imgHealthLifestyle First cancer treatment facility opens in Nevis by: – February 13, 2013 40 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img CHARLESTOWN, Nevis (NIA) — Last Friday was an historic day in Nevis, with the opening of the first cancer treatment centre by Hematology and Oncology Associates of the Caribbean, Inc. The medical facility will be run by medical hematologist and oncologist Dr Erole Hobdy.A specialist in the care of adult patients with various cancers and blood disorders, Hobdy has been in private practice in the US Virgin Islands since 2006. She is the owner of the Virgin Islands Hematology and Oncology practice and has private offices in St Thomas and St Croix.She decided to extend her practice to Nevis to accommodate her patients from St Kitts and Nevis, having seen that these persons needed the support of their families while they received chemotherapy.“It has always been my vision and my passion to be of service to my fellow Caribbean people… and to provide good quality oncology services and affordable cancer care to people throughout the Caribbean; however, I have not done this alone,” Hobdy said during the official opening ceremony.She acknowledged several individuals in the Ministry of Health who were instrumental in assisting her with the establishment of the hematology and oncology centre. Hobdy said she would have the assistance of a fellow oncologist who would be available for the Friday clinics to see cancer patients at the facility.“This is just the beginning of greater things to come. I just see endless possibilities,” she said.Meantime, Minister of Health on Nevis Mark Brantley, in his remarks, welcomed Hobdy to the island and pledged the government’s support of her practice.“I am here to welcome you, Dr Hobdy, and to say you have the untrammelled support of the Ministry of Health. Whatever we can do to demonstrate that we care about our people, that we care about the healthcare that is being delivered to our people, that we will be available to you… I can assure you that so long as God gives me life, you will have my support and the support of the ministry.”The health minister used the opportunity to outline a number of lifestyle choices which in his view, could help to minimise the incidence of contracting cancer. He reminded those present that in the event one contracted cancer, it did not have to be a death sentence.“I myself learned that it doesn’t have to be a death sentence, that with early detection and with treatment, such as that being brought by Dr Hobdy and her associates, that we in Nevis can have, if not a cancer-free society, certainly a society where our people do not need to die from this disease,” he said.Caribbean News Now Share Tweetlast_img read more
