Twin Muscle Workout Hodgetwins & ABC news say vegans dont get enough protein: re abclocal.go.com Nothing personal against Hodgetwins or the ABC nutritionists. I just find it amusing when people tell vegans they wont get enough protein yet they are unfit and or take a protein powder themselves. I mean the hodgetwins are not even strong or competitive level in lifting or bodybuilding yet claim to be authorities on protein. Thats like me giving Bill Gates computer advice cos I own an Apple Macbook.. From Dr McDougall Ignorance Sickens and Kills People www.drmcdougall.com Consider this scenario: Your loving husband of 35 years has a massive heart attack. He recovers and both of you pledge you will do anything—even eat cardboard—in order to avoid a repeat experience. On your first follow-up visit you tell your doctor that your family is going to follow a low-fat, vegan diet (all plant foods) from here on out. Your doctor says, “You can’t do that; you will become protein deficient—plant foods are missing essential amino acids—you must eat meat and other high quality animal foods.” Even though you vigorously explain meat, dairy, and eggs are the reasons you almost lost your husband, your doctor insists that you would be foolish to embark on such a course and defends that position with the writings of the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association.

New York, US (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
The primary reason for translating packaging for medical devices and diagnostics to be sold overseas is to ensure that the products can be used safely and as intended. Many medical devices and diagnostics businesses are now embarking upon translation projects to take advantage of the huge demand in regions such as Asia, South America and Africa.
Datamonitor predicts that by 2015, the global healthcare equipment and supplies market will be worth $ 370.7 billion, which is up 13.4 percent from the industrys value in 2010. Although the US still accounts for 45 percent of this market, there are several growing markets in emerging economies such as the BRIC nations and Africa. Therefore, it makes economic sense for healthcare and medical device firms to carefully translate the packaging and documentation of their products to a range of languages whether it is Portuguese, French, Cantonese or Hindi.
Proper translation is a vital part of the process of bringing medical products into foreign markets. Whether it is a consumer buying a device such as a hearing aid, a nurse administering an infusion pump or a surgeon implanting a stent, they preferably need to be able to read the packaging and directions in their own language. Medical device firms cannot afford mistakes in terminology in the translation process and the same can be said for medical diagnostics companies. Accurate translation is essential and cannot be compromised.
Medical device firms entering new markets do find that they are faced with growing regulatory pressures and this is where working with a qualified language services provider can help. The US Food and Drug Administration is keen to stress the importance of accurate and high-quality translation of medical device packaging. It states that medical device firms should work on, establishing and maintaining design transfer procedures that insure that the package design is correctly translated into production specifications.
It also asserts that manufacturers of other Class I devices should establish and maintain procedures for ensuring that their device design is correctly translated into production specifications.
In light of the regulatory demands and the pressure to constantly accelerate time-to-market for medical devices and diagnostics products, working with a language services provider with expertise in the medical device field can help. Translating medical device and diagnostics packaging is a high-risk activity that requires a huge level of expertise and experience to ensure best practice is observed. With short product-development cycles and increasing time pressures, medical technologies manufacturers cant risk putting speed above quality. Inaccurate and faulty translation could lead to expensive product recalls or liability cases.
Working with a qualified language service provider that holds internationally recognized quality standards, including ISO 13485:2003 and 14971:2007 certifications, is an effective way to reduce exposure when embarking upon a medical device, diagnostics and related services translation project. Merrill Brinks medical devices and diagnostics translation services offer a world-class, end-to-end solution that ensures medical device firms can get their products to new markets accurately and within budget.
