And thus the Taco or Beer Challenge, a month-long celebration of reproductive freedom, became manifest in the world. The challenge (ToBC for short) is incredibly simple: You eat a taco or you drink a beer, and you donate to an abortion fund.
For most of us, coffee offers a morning pick-me-up before we start a busy day. Whether you brew your own or wait on line at Starbucks we do what it takes to ensure we get our morning joe. But aside from the boost of energy it gives us, drinking coffee also has several health benefits. Research has shown that drinking 3-4 eight-ounce cups of black coffee a day could lower your risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other conditions.
Additional research suggests there may be benefits for your colon, too. A study published just this week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found daily coffee may boost colon cancer survival. Researchers saw benefits with those drinking 2-3 cups a day, and at 4 cups the rate of recurrence was almost half compared to those who did not drink coffee. We do not recommend daily coffee just yet for colon cancer patients as there is more researched needed to be done, but the research is promising.
Among 13 year olds, the acceptability of drinking has decreased over time, but with no statistically significant change between 2013 and 2015. Among 15 year olds, there was a small decrease among both genders in the proportion of pupils who thought it was 'ok' for someone their age to try drinking.
There was no difference between 13 year old boys and girls. However, as with trying drinking for the first time, 15 year old girls were more likely than boys to think that to try getting drunk was 'ok' (Figure 4.2).
Pupils were asked how much they had learned at school about a series of topics relating to alcohol: the risks to health; the effects that alcohol can have on other areas of life; that decision-making can be affected by alcohol; and that people's views about smoking, drinking and drug use can be affected by the things their friends say or do.
Across all four alcohol topics, there was a relationship between pupils' drinking behaviour and whether they felt that they had learned something. Those that said they had learned a little or a lot were less likely to have had a drink in the last week than those who said they had learned not much or nothing at all (Figure 4.6).
For example, among 15 year olds, 15% of those who said they had learned a lot about the risks to their health, and 17% of those who said they had learned a little, had a drink in the last week. Of those who said they had learned not much or nothing at all, 22% had a drink in the last week.
Confidence in future health and wellbeing choices was associated with drinking behaviour. Across all four statements, pupils who felt confident were less likely to have had a drink in the last week than those who did not.
For example, among 13 year olds, 3% of those who felt very confident and 4% of those who felt fairly confident about saying no to something they didn't want to do, had a drink in the last week. Of those who were not very confident or not confident at all, 8% had drunk alcohol in the last week (Figure 4.8).
I've lived in several countries and I've also traveled a lot for short periods. This year, I went to the French part of Belgium for more than one month, which is an unusual long period of time. After so long, you get to see people in their day-to-day life. What shocked me the most was to see that almost everybody is drinking alcohol every day. They would have a beer every time a guest is coming home, or just after coming back from work or even in the car driving around (including the driver!) and I heard lots of stories about people having drinks at work with colleagues. I've never seen that anywhere else but maybe people do it as well but are less comfortable showing it. According to your experience, is it usual for people to drink every day for almost every occasion? Is it a big thread to their health? I went also to UK where people get really wasted (not unusual to see people lying on the street around bars on Saturday night) but I have no clue if they drink a lot during the week.
In final phase of life, there are several and different symptoms, oneof them is the anorexia. It's an involuntary stopping eating and drinking when the death is next. The anorexia is a prognosis sign near death like dyspnea, oedema, etc. The euthanasia is not legal process in most countries. Therefore the anorexia is a natural symptom in most patients inthe end of life, and eating and drinking are questions quality life,...
In final phase of life, there are several and different symptoms, oneof them is the anorexia. It's an involuntary stopping eating and drinking when the death is next. The anorexia is a prognosis sign near death like dyspnea, oedema, etc. The euthanasia is not legal process in most countries. Therefore the anorexia is a natural symptom in most patients inthe end of life, and eating and drinking are questions quality life, not to increase survival days.
Topics for further study could include: Evaluation of caregiver actions and attitudes around giving permission for the action, and supporting their loved one through the discomforts and possible complications; investigation of the motivations in cases where patients start eating and drinking again; fine-tuning the query about symptoms in the last days to determine whether these were pre-existing, or else causedor exacerbated by undertaking VSED, as well as noting any symptoms that might have been improved by the process, perhaps nausea, dyspnea, or edema; sorting out risk factors for prolonged dying or for complications such as delirium or agitation and the range of therapeutic responses to it; comparing patients originally requesting PAD with those whose first plan was VSED to see how this changes perceptions and outcomes.
Now that I have read your contribution, I have better insights in theincidence and symptomatology of VSED. If in a conversation with a palliative care patient about the ways of (medically assisted) dying I will now be able to explain better what could happen if the patient startsrefusing to eat and drink from a certain moment.
I could expand my explanation of three to "four ways of dying" by telling patients and their family members something like this "Some peopledecide to hasten their death by voluntarily stopping of eating and drinking. This leads most of the time, especially when they don't drink anything, to death within a course of more or less one week. Sometimes it lasts for two weeks and seldom for a month before they die after having stopped eating and drinking. I want to stress, also for the family to know, that it can be normal for people in this stage of life to wake up and not to have the strength anymore to eat and drink - if that happens and no signs of reversible conditions would be found, then that is a sign of the normal course of life, leading to the final days of life. In most of those cases, stopping of eating and drinking happens just because the body is too tired to consume food and drinks. That is also the reason why doctors are reluctant to give artificial hydration and nutrition to patients in what we consider their final days of life. Do you have questions on this?"
It seems to me that, after having informed them once, having well answered the direct questions and given the opportunity sometimes, in other occasions, to talk about the subject again, only patients with a strong desire for this very specific way of dying will finally stop eatingand drinking voluntarily.
