    Descriptive info: .. 2006 Conferences.. Latest Health News.. Menu.. Skip to content.. Home.. Memorial for Those Who Died From Tobacco Inhalation.. Memorial walls have been put up all over the world to commemorate those who have died due to tobacco smoke during the.. World No Tobacco Day.. Families and friends have gathered to share their stories and struggles.. This also became a perfect venue to inform people the key facts on tobacco deaths and illnesses.. Tobacco smoking is one of the leading causes of death all over the world.. It has killed over six million people per year—-more than five million of which are smokers and over one million are victims of second-hand smoke.. According to research, if people remain passive and do not take any drastic actions about it, the annual death toll could possibly rise to more than eight million deaths by the year 2030.. During the memorial, experts have shared their insights on how to help tobacco users to quit smoking.. They said that through counselling and undergoing medication, there is a huge chance that a smoker will be able to successfully quit the vice.. In some developed countries, cessations are offered through their national comprehensive health care programs.. On the other hand, middle-income and low-income countries do not support cessation on their health programs.. This is really unfortunate because a huge number of tobacco deaths and illnesses that were recorded came from the low-income and middle-income countries.. World Health Organization has been working hard to fight the global tobacco epidemic.. They have introduced a list of control measures that will help the countries all over the world in fighting the tobacco deaths and tobacco-induced illnesses.. It is called MPOWER—M stands for ‘monitor tobacco use and prevention policies’; P stands for ‘protect people from tobacco use’; O stands for ‘offer help to quit tobacco use’; W stands for ‘warn about the dangers of tobacco’; E stands for ‘enforce bans on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship’; R stands for ‘raise taxes on tobacco’..

Air conditioners: Combat asthma with a breath of fresh air.. Asthma is a major problem in Australia, especially amongst young children with.. 11.. 3% of young people aged 0-15 suffering from this debilitating condition.. Children with asthma find it difficult to lead ‘normal’ lives, as they are unable to take part in every day activities such as sports, or general childlike activities.. As a result, these kids experience not only a poorer general health, but a poorer quality of life which can sometimes lead to serious cases of anxiety and/or depression.. Fortunately, if you or someone you know has children who suffer from asthma, there are things you can do to make their lives easier.. Because asthma is often caused by an allergic reaction to air-born molecules, such as dust and pollen, making sure your kids have a constant supply of fresh air is a great way to help reduce symptoms.. Regularly dusting indoors is one way to keep the air in your house free from harmful allergens, but the most efficient method of air purification is provided by in-house.. air conditioners.. If you aren’t already aware, these machines work to filter the air in your home from any asthma inducing fragments, allowing your children to breathe easier.. While it’s true that air conditioners are a great way to filter your homes air, you can also take preventive measures to ensure that the air in your home is not polluted in the first place.. One of the biggest risks to any young person suffering from asthma is.. second hand cigarette smoke.. , so please be careful not to smoke inside, for the sake of your children’s health.. Second hand smoke not only helps to induce asthma but may also increase your child’s chances of developing cancer later in life, so smoking indoors is a definite no-no.. Aside from these tips, always make sure you have your child’s medication on hand, just in case an attack does take place.. There’s nothing more frightening, for a child or parent, than being caught without an inhaler should an attack occur.. Remember, most children will grow out of this condition, but it’s up to you as a parent to ensure that any time spent with this problem is made easier.. Health Report: Australia 2010.. Statistics show that health is a priority among Australians, who spend more and more on health expenditures.. Studies also show that an increase in people working at health related agencies or companies have grown by 23% from 2003 to 2008.. In addition, Dr.. Albon, Director of.. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.. (AIHW) shared at some point that newer technologies and higher expectations from the community account for the growth in Australia’s health.. Moreover, statistics also show that life expectancy in the country is also among the longest in the world.. Furthermore, rates surviving cancer and other chronic diseases have also increased.. Unfortunately, despite being considered as among the healthiest in the world, Australia, it seems will have a 10% increase in the number of cancer patients in 2010.. The Australian government is doing everything to keep everyone’s health at its best.. In fact, a $650M investment is allotted for cancer regional centres by the government.. Other plans for developing the country’s health include the mental health of today’s youth.. It is said that adding a number of Headspace services can and will be able to help an additional 20,000 more youth if such a project pushes through.. On another note, smoking levels as well as deaths caused by smoking have decreased.. Meanwhile, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) still remain to be the number one cause of death in the country.. Cardiovascular disease includes all sicknesses related to the blood vessels and the heart.. Incidentally, statistics show that coronary heart disease tops the charts as the major buzz kill.. In 2006, 17% of all deaths in Australia are due to said disease.. Hence, there are certain activities to employ so as not to be added to statistics.. The wisest thing to do is to refrain from smoking.. Another thing to remember is to be as active as possible.. Schedule a day or two for fat-burning purposes.. Participating in moderately vigorous exercises will lessen chances of suffering from heart diseases.. One good thing to remember is to eat healthy food.. Look for Omega-3 rich food  ...   current method of diagnosing patients with Alzheimer’s are only carried out when the individual shows inability to perform day-to-day activities and memory loss, otherwise known as dementia.. Paul Aisen, an Alzheimer’s researcher included in one of the groups proposing the new guidelines, shares that “Our thinking has changed dramatically.. ” He also adds that, “We now view dementia as a late stage in the process.. ”.. Moreover, William Thies, the Chief Medical and Scientific Officer at Alzheimer’s Association mentioned that “The proposals would change the 1984 criteria by better reflecting the various stages of the disease and the inclusion of Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers.. Doctors will now have to learn new terms and this will cause consequences for.. lawyers.. ,.. insurance companies.. and workers’ compensation programs.. Statistics show that about 26M around the world have been confirmed–thru autopsies–to have died from Alzheimer’s.. Using biomarkers for diagnosing Alzheimer’s, aims to greatly lower the statistics.. The ripple extends beyond doctors and patients, Dr.. Doraiswamy said.. The new diagnostic criteria also have consequences for lawyers, insurance companies and workers’ compensation programs.. Health Insurance in Australia.. Health insurance, according to the Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC), in Australia has reached its highest records for a decade.. Records from the PHIAC show that 10 million Australians have taken the step to getting private health insurances.. Private health insurance covers several things.. Depending on the policy you have, the policy holder may insure against.. dental treatments.. , podiatry, home nursing, and hospital expenses among others.. On an annual basis, your insurer should let you know what health services or benefits you can claim.. However, you should look closely at the details to avoid any hidden charges that might come with the the insurance service you wish to claim.. Private Health Insurance Administration Council claims that, given the high insurance record, an additional 243,000 Australians have joined the health covers.. The PHIAC adds that a significant increase among 20-24 year old.. insurance.. holders have been seen in the last three months.. It is also interesting to note that the aforementioned age group does not have too much benefits to claim compared to other age brackets.. If this is the case—It would seem that, indeed, more and more Australians are thinking about their health.. Not surprising though.. After all, Australia has one of the longest life expectancies in the world.. In addition, the Australian government is doing everything in its power to keep its citizens as healthy as could be.. The health insurance increase has urged Health Minister Nicola Roxon to call on the Senate.. It is the Health Minister’s plea that the Senate approve the means test of 30% subsidy for the insurance.. The said test aims to save around $1.. 9 billion.. However, the Senate has blocked the means test when it was scheduled for execution in July.. 457 Health Insurance..

In addition, they are required to maintain insurance for the health costs to be sufficient until the duration of their visas.. In other words, it is of utmost importance that new applicants make arrangements to have themselves and their families covered by health insurance prior to the applicants’ arrival in Australia.. The failure to maintain the.. health insurance.. can result to cancellation of the visa.. On the other hand, those who got their subclass 457 visas approved before the 14.. of September 2009, their sponsors will remain to be responsible for the hospital/medical expenses.. In addition, sponsors who fail to comply with the costs may be dealt with administrative sanctions.. This is in accordance to Visa Condition 8501.. Australia prides itself with having relatively high life expectancy among its people.. Sometime in 1975, the island continent introduced Medibank – a universal health care..
