First do no harm


What is implicit in this simple precept of medicine?

An awesome power. The power to do harm.

Who gives you this power?

The patient give you the power. A patient will come to you at his moment of greatest dread , hand you a knife an say, “Doctor, cut me open.”


Because they trust you. They trusts you the way a child trusts. They trusts you to do no harm.

The sad fact is , human beings are not worthy of trust. It is human nature to lie, take shortcuts, to lose your nerve, get tired, make mistakes. No rational patient would put his trust in a human being and were not gonna let him. It is our mission here to rigorously and ruthlessly train the humanity out of you and make you into something better. Were gonna make doctor out of you.

Many people go through life worrying about what may happen next. The fear of the unknown is what gives people a lot of anxiety and makes them nervous of what the future has to hold. Obviously everyone is different and this is something that will not refer to everyone but it is certainly apparent for many people. A lot of people fear about their health and how it will be affected in the future. Will they get a serious condition? Will they suffer from arthritis when they get older? There are literally dozens of these questions. But there’s no point worrying too much about what may never happen and even if it does, there are solutions to help. Arthritis medications for instance can make a huge difference in reducing pain, which may be being suffered.

Although no one really knows what causes arthritis, there are many studies going on all the time to find out more about the condition. There are several types of arthritis and it can affect different parts of the body. It is a condition that makes joints very painful and these are more commonly joints in the hands and legs. Arthritis medications can be used to help make the pain less but they won’t actually cure the problem. The condition could easily disappear or possibly reappear in another area. Arthritis is a very troublesome condition.

There are various types of arthritis medications which can be purchased from your local pharmacy. However, you should always consult with your doctor before taking any new medication. They should be taken as per the instructions and will mostly contain pain relieving ingredients. This should make you more comfortable but as mentioned before, won’t remove the condition, it will just help relive the pain.

You may also be required to undertake physical therapy to help soften the joints or be told to do regular exercises to help the joints move more freely. By using a combination of arthritis medications and following the advice from your doctor, you should be able to live a normal and pain free life!

High Blood Sugar

Hyperglycemia is a condition which is caused by having high blood sugar in your system. It can cause some quite severe symptoms such as blood clots and can lead to an increase in infections. More seriously, it can be a major cause of diabetes. So it is vital that you do all you can do lower blood sugar levels in your system.

Having a healthy lifestyle consisting of regular exercise and eating healthily is the best way to lower your blood sugar levels. Ideally you should try to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. This can be in the form of running, cycling or even walking is enough to make you sweat and lower blood sugar levels.

You should try to eat foods that are low in sugar and low glycemic content. Your body slowly digests these types of foods as compared to high sugar content foods which the body will digest very quickly. The more high sugar content you consume, the harder the pancreas has to work to create more insulin to combat this.

Ideally you should try to avoid eating fast food also. Burgers, fries and other food types tend to not contain any good things and mostly are high in fat and often high in sugar content. If you must eat from a fast food chain, then why not try a healthy salad instead of the burger meal. You can also substitute the milkshake or coke for a diet coke or mineral water.

Drinking lots of water each day is also beneficial to keep the body hydrated and flushes out many toxins which do not do the body any favours whatsoever. 6-8 glasses each day is recommended and you should try your best to reach this target if you can.

You could even try a full detox for a week or so which will really lower blood sugar levels to a more safer area. This can be done very easily by just eating and drinking healthy foods and is also a great way to lose some excess weight at the same time.


Mesothelioma And The Health Risks Of Asbestos

Asbestos has been in use since the mythological era of Ancient Greece, but asbestos can be a modern-day killer. Widely used for fireproof insulation purposes in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, asbestos has since been found to cause the deadly cancer mesothelioma along with other lung conditions.

Occupational Exposure and Dangers To Workers

After noticing that chronic diseases, especially cancers of the lung such as mesothelioma, were extremely common in construction workers who were exposed to asbestos, doctors began making a connection between asbestos and mesothelioma. Unfortunately, construction and other workers who were exposed to asbestos from the 1950s through the 1970s, when the dangers of asbestos were more fully recognized, are still suffering from the ill effects of asbestos exposure at work. There are now laws and regulations in place that are designed to prevent workers from exposure to toxic asbestos; however, these laws cannot undo years upon years of exposure to this deadly mineral in the workplace.

Delayed Diagnosis Due To Long Dormancy Period

Workers may have been exposed to asbestos in the 1970s, but may only just now be developing the tell-tale symptoms of mesothelioma. This is because the disease is slow to manifest, which challenges doctors struggling to diagnose and treat mesothelioma patients in time. Because its symptoms take so long to manifest and often align themselves with those of other diseases, mesothelioma in

workers may be misdiagnosed as pneumonia or other diseases during its early stages.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

Symptoms of mesothelioma can include:

A shortness of breath, abdominal swelling, pain of the abdomen, blood clotting problems, chest pain, chronic cough, heart palpitations, fever, labored breath, and weight loss.

Pleural, peritoneal and pericardial mesothelioma are all possible variations of the deadly cancer, with pleural (lung) mesothelioma the most commonly manifested version of the disease.

High-Risk Professions

Though the use of asbestos is now regulated by laws and regulations, the disease's long dormancy period means that it still has a high number of potential victims. Professions at a high risk for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma are those which involved repeated exposure to asbestos in its industrial forms.

These professions include:

Electricians, painters, insulators, carpenters, bricklayers, construction, workers, mechanics, and other tradespeople, especially those who were involved with commercial or home construction before the 1970s.

The families of these workers were also at risk, since they may have inhaled or ingested asbestos through the employee's clothing or hair.

Legal Options

Because of the huge number of potentially affected workers, there has been a significant amount of mesothelioma litigation against companies who irresponsibly used asbestos, exposing their workers to the threat of mesothelioma and other life-threatening asbestos-related illnesses. If you are suffering the ill effects of asbestos exposure, talk to your doctor and determine a reasonable treatment plan.

Make Firefox 3.5.3 faster.

Reduce the amount of RAM Firefox uses for its cache feature

1. Type “about:config” (no quotes) in the adress bar in the browser.
2. Find “browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer
3. Set it’s value to “0“;(Zero)

Increase the Speed at Which Firefox loads pages

1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit Enter.
(Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.)

2. Alter the entries as follows:
Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true
Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true
Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 10.

This means it will make 10 requests at once.

3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0“;.(Zero)

This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages faster now.
Optionally (for even faster web browsing) here are some more options for your about:config (you might have to create some of these entries by Right Click –> New– > Interger or String

network.dns.disableIPv6: set “false”
content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“; (Five)
plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”.
ui.submenuDelay”: set “0; (zero)

Reduce RAM usage to 10MB when Firefox is minimized:

This little hack will drop Firefox’s RAM usage down to 10 Mb when minimized:

1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type in about:config and then press Enter.
2. Right Click in the page and select New -> Boolean.
3. In the box that pops up enter “config.trim_on_minimize”. Press Enter.
4. Now select True and then press Enter.

Ciri - ciri yahudi

Al Maidah : 20 -24

20. Dan ingatlah ketika musa berkata kepada kaumnya,”wahai kaumku! Ingatlah akan nikmat Allah kepadamu ketika Dia mengangkat nabi2 diantaramu dan menjadikan kamu sebagai orang2 yang merdeka, dan memberikan kepadamu apa yang belum pernah diberikan kepada seorang pun diantara umat yang lain.”

21. Wahai kaumku! Masuklah ke tanah suci Palestin yang telah di tentukan Allah bagimu, dan janganlah kamu berbalik ke belakang ( kerana takut kepada musuh ) , nanti kamu menjadi orang yang rugi.

22. Mereka berkata , “ wahai musa , sesungguhnya dalam negeri itu ada orang2 yang sangat kuat dan kejam, kami tidak akan memasukinya sebelum mereka keluar darinya. Jika mereka keluar dari sana, nescaya kami akan masuk.

23. Berkatalah 2 orang laki2 diantara mereka yang bertakwa, yang telah diberikan nikmat oleh Allah, “ serbulah mereka melalui pintu gerbang negeri itu. Jika kamu memasukinya , nescaya kamu akan menang. Dan bertaqwalah kamu hanya kepada Allah, jika kamu orang2 yang beriman.”

24. Mereka berkata , “ Wahai musa! Sampai kapanpun kami tidak akan memasukinya selama mereka masih ada di dalamnya, kerana itu pergilah engkau bersama Tuhanmu , dan berperanglah kamu berdua. Biarlah kami tetap menanti disini saja.

Ayat ni menjelaskan kepada kita beberapa ciri2 orang yahudi.

1. Suka membantah.

Musa ajak masuk ke negeri Palestin. Diorang pn bantah.banyak la die punya alasan. Padahal ayat di atas jelas menyuruh mereka ‘masuk’, bukanya suruh perang. So kalu mereka beriman pasti mereka akan masuk tanpa ragu.

Ayat 20 kat atas bgtau mereka dapat nabi2 dr kalangan mereka dan banyak kelebihan2 yang lain. Tapi punyalah mereka ni suke membantah, sampai semua nabi diorang bantah. Akhirnya sampai mereka membunuh nabi2 dari kalangan mereka sendiri. Sungguh tak patut.

2. Penakut

Ni lagi satu yg sume orang tau.yahudi ni penakut. Waktu musa suruh diorg masuk ke negeri Palestin, mereka kate kat sane ade org yg kuat dan kejam. So diorng tak nak masuk. Sampai zaman sekarang pn kita tgk yahudi ni penakut. Die nk perang dgn lawan yang tak selevel dgn diorg. Kalu die ada senapang, die nk lawan dgn org yang pakai batu je.if org tu sama level dgn die, die takut na lawan. Apatah lagi yang lebih advanced dari die.

3. Tau nak senang je.

Ade ke patut org2 yahudi nie suruh musa pergi berperang dgn tuhan die. Bile dh menang baru nk join. Banyak cantik. Diorang ni tau nk senang je. Diorg tak tau erti perjuangan. Mane ade perjuangan yang senang. Di zaman modern skrg pn macam ni jg. Orang2 yahudi ni tak nak kotorkan tangan mereka untuk mendapat tujuan mereka. Mereka menggunakan proxy. Antaranya , mereka menggunakan England untuk mendapatkan Palestin dari org arab. Sekarang proxy mereka adalah Amerika. Segala tindakan Amerika sebenarnya adalah untuk tujuan kepentingan yahudi. Selain Amerika, mereka juga ada banyak organisasi2 yang mendukung mereka. Antaranya Freemason, Illuminati, lion club , rotary club dll.

Kesimpulannya , kita harus hati2 dengan yahudi ni sebab diorang bijak dan licik… mungkin saat ni cara yang agak mujarab nk lawan yahudi ni adalah dengan memboikot produk2 mereka. Jadi di kesempatan ni saya menyeru kawan2 saya supaya memboikot barang2 yahudi. Jangan beli barang unilever, KFC, Pizza Hut, Mc Donald, Starbuck dll…
