Medical Anthropology. Medical Anthropology Interpretation of a 19th Century Iroquois Indian Medicine (Prayer) Stick.
A mid-to late-19th century prayer stick was researched, documented, and analyzed for its form and function. Animal spirits representations identified in the stick made use of beaver (probably linked to the 19th century struggling pelt industry), bears, bison and raven, with the latter animal spirit responsible for most of the artefact’s carved form and function.
The location of the area this medicine or prayer stick symbolized was a large plains states region with buffalo residing locally. This stick is possibly of Iroquois origin, although the carvings suggest a focus on the great plains lifestyle. Medical Geography and Disease Surveillance. A Survey has been developed by myself to document and compare GIS utilization in the workplace.
This is intended only for sharing at this blogsite (and Medical GIS conferences) –no gimmicks, no advertising. Survey Monkey is used, which is a secured survey site that gathers no private information. Why the survey? There must be others like me trying to deal with the frustrations experienced due the slow progress made when it comes to incorporating high level GIS skills into the workplace. BIOSTATISTICS. A Survey has been developed to document and compare GIS utilization in the academic and non-academic workplace.
This survey assesses for GIS availability and utilization in the workplace, which range from students’s PC/laptop access in academia to GIS technicians’ and statistical analysts’ desks, and IT and Managerial positions. The purpose is to document the level of GIS employment in the workplace with the goal of increasing the utilization of GIS in the typical work settings. Public Health, Medicine and History.

Cicadas' antibacterial trick may help humans. When humans need to fight off dangerous bacteria, we tend to use chemicals. Microbes, unlike mosquitoes and other squashable vermin, are too small for us to kill directly. But thanks to a team of scientists and an Australian cicada, we may soon have a new weapon in our antibacterial arsenal. A study published in Biophysical Journal reveals how the clanger cicada, a locust-like insect from eastern Australia, kills bacteria with tiny, blunted spikes on its wings.
If this can be replicated in manmade materials, it might thwart bacterial growth on public surfaces like stair banisters, bus handrails or bathroom doors — and possibly without the environmental side effects of chemicals like Triclosan. 2 of 3 Americans Are Concerned With Toxins Found in Common Household Products, Study Shows. Deepak Chopra, Seventh Generation and Breast Cancer Fund Join to Discuss the Importance of Removing Toxins From Our Lives (Marketwire) - Nearly two-thirds of all Americans (64%) say they are "concerned" or "very concerned" about potentially harmful chemicals and petroleum-based ingredients found in everyday personal care, household cleaning, laundry and baby care products, according to a study released today.
Top concerns of petroleum-based products are "long term health effects" (75%) and "absorption through the skin" (71%). Concerns were similar across age, gender and other demographic categories. Commissioned by Seventh Generation, a leading maker of renewable household and personal care products, the study questioned 1,000 Americans to gauge awareness, attitudes and concerns about ingredients found in products they use daily.
America's Concern With Toxins: Infographic. Human health and the microwave. Up until about two months ago, there has always been a microwave wherever I've lived. When I was a child, TV dinners were the staple food for my family, leftovers have always been reheated in them, afternoon snacks of nachos were quickly "nuked" before homework or volleyball practice in high school and during college I never would have eaten on busy nights full of long papers without a microwave. But today I was reading up on microwaves at Mercola.com and found some interesting facts: The Synthetic Vitamin Milligram Game. Generally speaking, evaluating the proper milligrams of a synthetic vitamin supplement, as related to the potency of a vitamin, is a confusing and misleading proposition. This is because synthetic vitamins are refined, high potency chemicals, and therefore can be accurately measured in milligrams, just like drugs.
Measuring synthetic vitamin compounds in milligrams has nothing to do with real vitamin activity or nutrition. Nutri-Con: The Truth About Vitamins & Supplements. A major underlying theme of this campaign will be to steadily inform and remind consumers that Big Pharma's prescription and over the counter drugs are generally hazardous substances offering no real solution to our health problems; while preventive health and wellness promotion, traditional holistic remedies, and complementary medicine practices represent the "organic road" to health.
In terms of wellness promotion, there is no doubt that an organic whole foods-based diet and a healthy lifestyle are the "best medicine" for those of us trying to survive and keep our families healthy in the toxic soup of 100,000 synthetic chemicals that surround us everyday, polluting our food, water,medicines, homes, and environment. But as we complement our organic whole foods-based diet with herbs and supplements, we need to make sure that these vitamins and botanicals are derived from naturally occurring plant and mineral sources, and that they contain no synthetic chemicals whatsoever.
