This underscores COPD¡¯s low profile as a public health issue.</p> <p>In fact, COPD overtook breast cancer as a cause of death for Canadian women in 2009, according to Statistics Canada figures, and since then COPD deaths have climbed while breast cancer deaths have fallen. (The latest figures, from 2011, show 5,342 deaths from COPD, 4,958 for breast cancer.)</p> <p><a href="/c1f/en/networkmagazine/shortofbreath" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 11 May 2014 21:43:02 +0000 cwhn 46340 at/c1f Book Review: Committed to the Sane Asylum https://www.google.com//c1f/en/networkmagazine/committedtothesaneasylum <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-nm-pub-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Mon, 2014-04-07</span> </div> </div> </div> <h2>BOOK REVIEW</h2> <p><strong><em>Committed to the Sane Asylum: Narratives on Mental Wellness and Healing</em> by Susan Schellenberg, and Rosemary Barnes.

At the time of its release in 2010, the film enjoyed moderate success, winning the prize for best short film at the Kiev international film festival, but did not receive broad public attention. It wasn¡¯t until recently that the film suddenly became hugely popular, receiving almost 9 million views on YouTube (for the version with English subtitles), and as the subject of a number of articles and public debates in the media.&nbsp;</p> <p>The film begins with Pierre, the main character, walking along the street and pushing a stroller.

We may inhale them, swallow them in contaminated food or water, or in some cases, absorb them through our skin. Recent research indicates that all human beings carry varying amounts of chemicals in our bodies, with health effects that are not yet known. Each person¡¯s risk of developing health problems related to environmental chemicals is tied to a combination of exposure, genetics, sex, age, nutrition and lifestyle. And an individual¡¯s exposure to environmental pollution can be analyzed through a process called ¡°biomonitoring.¡±</p> <p>As analytical methods become more sophisticated, we are able to detect minute amounts of chemical presence in human tissue. A number of studies have used biomonitoring techniques to determine levels of chemicals in the body and concerns have emerged around disclosing results. While some argue that reporting results of the presence of chemical substances causes unnecessary alarm, others advocate for the right to know, even if the possible health effects are unclear. This raises ethical issues related to reporting biomonitoring results to study participants.</p> <p><a href="/c1f/en/networkmagazine/doyouwanttoknow" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 03 Mar 2014 19:45:20 +0000 cwhn 46282 at/c1f Book Review: Sweetening the Pill or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control https://www.google.com//c1f/en/networkmagazine/reviewsweeteningthepill <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-nm-pub-date"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 2014-01-22</span> </div> </div> </div> <h2><strong>BOOK REVIEW</strong></h2> <p><strong><a href="http://www.zero-books.net/books/sweetening-pill" target="_blank"><em>Sweetening the Pill or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control </em></a>by Holly Grigg-Spall, Zero Books, 2013.</strong></p> <p><strong>Review by Ellen Reynolds</strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.zero-books.net/books/sweetening-pill" target="_blank"><img style="float: left; margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px;" src="/sites/default/files/network-reseau/sweeteningthepill.jpg" alt="" width="211" height="323" /></a>Holly Grigg-Spall has a story to tell. With her recent book, <em>Sweetening the Pill or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control, </em>Grigg-Spall also has an altruistic agenda: to share her experience in the hope that it will encourage women to question their own use of hormonal contraceptives, and to consider alternatives.</p> <p>Grigg-Spall begins <em>Sweetening the Pill</em> by telling her story of being prescribed the birth control pill Yasmin, which she describes as ¡°a diet drug, a beauty product and a contraceptive all rolled into one, and doctor endorsed to boot.¡± After being on the pill for years she began to wonder if it was causing her brain fog, panic attacks, depression, loss of libido, urinary tract infections and a number of other health complaints. Then, she says, it ¡°shook me awake¡± when she read that the pill may be altering her body chemistry and changing her ¡°psychological state.¡±&nbsp; This was when Grigg-Spall decided to ¡°stop taking the pill for good.¡± Around the same time she was also hearing similar stories from friends and family members, and after moving from the UK to the United States with her American boyfriend (now husband) she <a href="http://www.sweeteningthepill.blogspot.co.uk/" target="_blank">started a blog on the topic</a>.
