EDMONTON — The union representing Alberta health-care staff who walked off the job Monday to protest recent cuts says its members will return to work after the province’s labour relations board ruled they acted illegally. Rosacea is a chronic, cyclical skin condition with no cure, according to the Mayo Clinic. The main symptom of rosacea is red skin tone and the cyclical flareups bring red bumps and pustules to the surface. Niacinamide has been cited in two different studies as a well-tolerated treatment. Wake Forest University scientists tested 50 subjects with rosacea. Their study, which was published in the August 2005 issue of “Cutis,” found that applying a niacinamide-based moisturizer to the face and forearm twice daily for four weeks alleviated symptoms of the condition. The University of Pittsburgh’s Nicomide Improvement in Clinical Outcomes Study, or NICOS, showed similar results. Most study participants reported improved halfway through the eight-week study-79 percent reported their appearance to be either moderately or much better, while 55 percent showed a moderate to substantial reduction in rosacea lesions. The authors caution that the cross-sectional observational nature of the study does not allow for conclusions about cause and effect. Because the respondents’ candidate preference and party affiliation were unknown, the authors relied on the candidate’s margin of victory or loss in a state to assess which candidate’s voters experienced changes in mental health. Causes of iron deficiency range from excessive bleeding to having a diet low in iron. Treating iron deficiency focuses on reversing the underlying cause of the iron loss, as well as iron replacement therapy to replenish your body’s iron stores. Iron replacement supplements are available in both tablet and injection form. Always consult your doctor before taking any iron supplement – taking iron supplements you don’t need, or taking too high a dosage, can have serious side effects. Black Americans, who make up 13 percent of the U.S. population, are 4.7 times more likely than whites to be hospitalized with COVID-19, CDC data from August showed They’re also twice as likely to die of the virus than white Americans, and have the highest chance of any racial or ethnic group of dying of the coronavirus. That’s likely due to health care and economic inequities that have hurt Black Americans for decades. Unfortunately, the downside of the Industrial Revolution has been the greater exposure to these heavy metals, through a variety of means. It is also unforturnate that corporations ignore the existence of these heavy metals in their products as well as in the manufacturing process. Neither are organic foods tested or checked for the presence of heavy metals. It is important to be aware of the presence of heavy metals in nutritional supplements, like fish oils. Furthermore, under current farming and food processing practices, our processed foods are becoming deficient in calcium, magnesium, phosporus, potassium, and sodium. It makes sense that that assessing a patient’s exposure to heavy toxic metals (and other substances) needs to become part of the standard medical protocol.
