It was a real whirlwind of facts and conventions that the end of the session were puzzling. X-large part of the country’s problems was exposed to such clarity and rawness that was inevitable feeling that the country was on the verge of collapse. Accented with all this natural drama that politicians often use when looking to emphasize the problems that will bring to them the spotlight, of course. Thus, ensuring the greatest possible objectivity, the reflective exercise, naturally led to the endless chain of underdevelopment in which we are engaged as a country: A large percentage of extremely poor country with low levels of nutrition that are largely responsible for Low levels of education and educational backwardness, which coupled with poor public health service and compounded by high unemployment and informal employment, in turn generates high levels of crime. All previous results if set low levels of per-capita domestic product worse by the low production efficiency which in turn causes low tax revenues so the government embezzlement captive taxpayers and especially PEMEX, leaving no possibility self-finance their development and to develop own technology and innovation, and although PEMEX generates a lot of money for the country, (especially these days) the government to absorb most precisely to the institutions and programs should help to improve all the above aspects, from combat extreme poverty, to public health and safety and promotion of productive and technological development. However, all this fabulous amount of money, taken from PEMEX and taxpayers, blends into the deep cloud of corruption that covers all activities of the government coupled with those private companies who interact with them, either as contractors or suppliers. Thus the overall balance of the country and this only worsens the vicious circle degenerates into increasingly acute problem under the current global reality forces us to challenge for which we are doing in practice: almost anything (food crisis, energy crisis, U.S. financial crisis , global insecurity and climate change).

Thus, are great challenges and adversity that lies ahead, if not already being experienced in some sectors of the country is great. One can only hope that the statement begins Homeric with which this article is also valid for this national culture, which apparently is very pleased with the “prosperity oil” that helps fund the shirking of the poor with “opportunities” as well as the political class, most corrupt and that only seems to develop the talent to fight for power and the juicy slice it leaves. As one analyst pointed out oil-based economies to compare the economic and social development of oil-producing countries: “… actually, underdevelopment is not a stage of economic evolution of a country, is a way of thinking.”

Physical Training

Studies in patients had not had clinical repercurso of the coronariano point of view (BLACKSMITH, 1994). In this particular one, the physical training has contrary effect to the one of esterides anablicos, since it promotes the increase of the HDL (LEEDS et al, 1986). More information is housed here: supermodel. But this increase can not be found when lipdes is inside of the normal levels (BLACKSMITH, 1994). Esterides is not only attributed to it anablicos increase of secondary the coronariano risk and infarto of the myocardium to the alterations of the lipdico metabolism, as hipertrofia concentrical miocrdica with reduction of the ventricular volume, what it could modify the relation pressure-volume of the heart (HERSCHMAN, 1990). Herschman found ventricular increase of septo, with normal ventricular function, in levantadores of weight, with relation septo/bigger posterior wall that 1,3, to the similarity of individuals with miocrdica hipertrofia (hipertrofia subartica and anti-symmetrical septal hipertrofia). However, in more recent study, according to THOMPSON, SADANANTZ and CULLINANE (cited for WEINECK, 1996) including thirteen athletes who had made, at least, three cycles of esteride during the year, by six the ten weeks of use, were not observed difference of the size of ventculo in relation to the group have controlled, even so the percentage of shortening fraction were a little lower (WEINECK, 1996). 2.5 – Assumptions Have studies of the anablicos effect of esterides on the heart, in carriers of illnesses under physical training, had not found in the ecocardiogramas alterations in the thickness of septo to interventricular, in the posterior wall or in dimetros diastlico and sistlico of the left ventricle.

It also did not have alteration of the left ventricular function, measured for the fraction of ejection or fraction of shortening, as well as did not have alteration of the ventricular mass of these patients (BLACKSMITH, 1994). In a similar way, significant electrocardiographic alterations had also not occurred. In relation to the fact of esterides to be able to induce carcinognese, animal models has been used to study this possibility.

For people suffering from this phobia is the fear of being in social situations. 6. Social phobia can be generalized and specific.

The difference is that while people are shy and uncomfortable and awkward in social situations, but they do not experience intense fear in anticipation of these events and not try to avoid these situations. In addition, people with social phobia are not necessarily looking confused in some situations they may look ease. 9. Social phobia tends to be undiagnosed and untreated.

Gastric Bypass

There is already a new scoring system to predict, so successful, that patient is at increased risk of death to be a bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass. This system is based on five medical factors, and was proposed last year by the Medical Center surgeons at Duke University. To do this, we take into account the patient’s weight, gender, age, blood pressure and the risk of developing a blood clot in the lungs. Doctors who use this system can easily determine if the patient presents risk of dying is low, medium or high. It has been found that patients in high-risk group were six times more likely to die than those in the low risk group and patients in the medium risk group were three times more likely to die. The surgeon Eric DeMaria, Duke Hospital, said that this system is the first to determine the risk of patients who are considering as an option. This system, he said, allows surgeons have specific data can be used in making the decision whether or not the surgery and during the discussion with patients. Also, the system provides standardization of surgical outcomes, making comparisons more meaningful averages.

In a new study, we examined data from patients who had a 4.433 at the University of South Florida, Medical University of South Carolina and a private hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona. In this scoring system, patients with none or one of five medical factors are considered low risk, those with two or three factors are of medium risk and those with four or five of them are considered at greatest risk. Of the 2.166 patients classified in the scoring system as low-risk group, eight died. 2.142 Twenty-six of the patients in the medium-risk group died, and three of the 125 patients in the high risk group. Although patients in the high-risk group represented less than 3% of the total, representing 8% of deaths.

Factors to consider include:? A body mass index greater than 50. On this scale, the measure of body fat based on weight and height of the person and above 30 is considered obese. Male. Men are more likely than women to suffer hypertension, diabetes and metabolic disorders, in addition to the risk of surgery itself. Older age. Patients over 45 years are at high risk of death after bariatric surgery. Hypertension. Patients with hypertension or high blood pressure, regularly have heart problems or chronic inflammation of blood vessels, increasing the risk of surgery. Risk of pulmonary embolism. Patients with pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs, or are at risk for a stroke are at greater risk of death with surgery. ‘When we talk to patients about bariatric surgery, we can cite national averages in terms of risks, but not very useful when a patient specific sits in front of me, “says DeMaria. “Many doctors and patients see bariatric surgery as an option only when other means to lose weight have failed. However, our system shows that this strategy may need to be reconsidered. ” For patients with high risk, DeMaria said that the best method is to lose some weight before surgery. Alternatively, surgeons can make a series of smaller procedures, and therefore less risky, during that time. In obesity goodbye we have a electronic reference tool that considers the above and can help you decide which weight loss surgery is your best option.

This science was and is constantly supplemented. Even today, the vast majority of the Indian population is treated Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, the world consists of two primary principles: the living principle (of the soul) and of inanimate matter. The whole world, also the man with his organs and various tissues, formed the primal matter. Whole body tissues is supplied by the food with nutrient juice, which is finally transformed into own body tissue. This process is controlled by three body’s energies, bio-energies, which are interactive and ensure the normal functioning of the body: vata (wind movement) controls the movement and differentiation in the body.

Pitta (fire digestive fire) controls the metabolism process. Kapha (phlegm adhesive) controls the access/installation of the substances in the body. Other leaders such as Senator From Kentucky offer similar insights. Vata controls food intake and their transport and excretion. (As opposed to Cindy Crawford). But also cardiovascular, respiratory, language and motor skills of the muscles are subject to vata. Pitta determines the conversion of food into nutrient juice and the processing of nutrient juice in various tissues. So Pitta is also responsible for regulating body temperature, for the look, the skin color, the dissemination and the intellectual skills. Kapha is the ability to build up the tissue.

But he is also lubricating, ensures the joint function, acts against wear and protects the stomach from the digestive power of Pitta. Immunology in its expanded form, everyone is in constant contact with the environment. According to Ayurvedic health, diseases are caused by an excessive or less moderate or a wrong contact. So, for example, sunbathing is a false contact on the first day of a vacation. Never go to the Sun, however, is too little contact and too much contact is to lie for hours in the Sun. In a sick body pathogenic substances (doshas) have made broad, who possess certain properties and effects: an important Ayurvedic idea is the Related material or substrate, property and effect.
