The Best Way to Deal With Health Issues

Health issues are a flagship of any medical tourism. Hundreds and thousands of people journey abroad to find cure and relief in their health problems. Different people have different opinions for medical tourism, some are kind of in drifting away mode while the remaining others are happily pursuing it. Based on previous statistics, people have proved that medical tourism is a successful pioneering advancement in the health industry. Those patients who have trusted and went ahead with their travel to an international land to get the treatment done have more often than not given a positive feedback. They have not only masqueraded their health issues but also proved that the hospitals and the veterans are not fooling, instead they are catering us much better than our own country and that too in the lowest cost possible. These countries are rigorously serving us by investing a lot of their infrastructure in building up hospitals and nursing homes. Even the doctors are highly qualified and the staffs involved are well trained in hospitality services.

Many treatments which are not included in the insurance policies, and might lead to a hole in the pocket, and a reason for stress explosion in many. But with medical tourism transcending new heights, new health policies are offered within the package which includes the coverage of medical conditions like plastic surgeries, hair transplants, cosmetic surgeries, cancer, non-emergency cardiovascular cases, and dental prosthesis and not to forget telesurgery, a comparatively new surgical procedure, whereby a veteran surgeon operates a far off sitting patient through robotic mechanism.

During medical tourism, a hospital strives to provide both Eastern as well as Western medical approaches. Due to which a large flock of people from different countries get attracted by the medical tourism and spend quality time in getting treated and recovering rather than toiling amidst large queues and waiting for their turn for a simple X-ray or a blood test. Such quick services allure patients from all parts of the world.

One might question the legal issues that the medical treatments in an international land comes with, but then those procedures which are banned in one’s own country are open for reverence in the other. Moreover, if a treatment costs you much less than what it might take in your own land, medical tourism is all worth it.

At times, procedures such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney transplant or plastic surgeries like face lift, liposuction, or replacement of hip joints or knee joints can become a victim of malpractice, but when you are in abroad all because of your medical reasons, the hospital and the staff take the utmost care of the patient and refrain from illicit practice. They make sure to serve quality treatment in a proper and systematic way.

Although, one’s own land makes him feel at home and much ease than any foreign land, even if it allures your attention by its best services, the truth is that a medical tourism will help you loosen your anxieties, open up the knots of dissatisfaction and untrust. One should definitely visit abroad to seek medical intervene if health issues are perpetuating and are not being taken care of in your own country. There must be no other obsession than your own health. And health should top the list of priorities in every individual’s life.


Killer Foods

Their Congress has passed a bill that makes it against the law to label foods on the market shelves as being a product of genetically modified organisms. The debate was that, given the fact of an overwhelming evidence that genetically modified foods are harmful to humans, and government insistence that only genetically modified foods are the best for the country, every food that contains GMO should be labeled so that Americans have a choice in deciding whether to buy the GMF or the naturally produced foods. In fact, in recent times, there has been several recalls of shelf foods due to the fact that they were deemed to have used undeclared chemicals in their production.

The government has been at war with the farmers who produce and sell directly to consumers without resort to genetics, with the accusation that their foods are contaminated with the Salmonella species of bacteria. Salmonella is the main causative agent for diarrhea. For example, American federal and state regulators are seeking legal sanctions against farmers in Maine, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and California, among others. These sanctions include injunctions, fines, and even prison sentences for farmers who fail to join the genetic bandwagon.

Genetic modification of foods started in the nineteen eighties. The biotechnology giant Monsanto began to genetically alter corn to withstand its activities in trying to round up their weed clearing agenda-or herbicide roundup, as it was generally referred to. The goal was to eradicate weeds but not crops and resist a corn pest called the corn borer. These small changes in the Deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, the building blocks of proteins in the body, of the corn are expressed by the plant as proteins. Those proteins act as allergens, provoking a disorder marked by the overproduction of a type of white blood cell called an eosinophil.

The U.S. government started approving GMO corn and soybeans for sale in the mid-1990s, and today, 88% of corn, and 93% of soybeans, are the transgenic varieties. According to my findings, due to cross-pollination via winds, birds, and bees, there’s no such thing anymore as a GMO-free corn crop in the U.S. “It’s almost impossible to find a corn source in the United States that doesn’t have the [protein] in it,” Dr. Mansman, an allergist who works in a Virginia hospital, told an American Magazine.Then, participants at the 10th anniversary of African Agricultural Technology Foundation, AATF seminar say Nigeria’s dream of achieving food sufficiency in 2015 will be a mirage, unless the country adopts biotechnology in the agricultural sector. Even Olusola Saraki, a senator and chairman senate committee on environment and ecology, who is currently the Senate President, decried the delay in signing the bill into law.
