Battle over ObamaCare’s impact on jobs, economy.
Many doctors-in-training have gone to work with flu symptoms, ignoring the risks of passing on bugs to vulnerable patients, a new survey shows.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2013
With a recent Gallup poll showing 58% of Americans support ending marijuana prohibition, Publius, pen name for The Cannabis Papers: A citizens guide to cannabinoids (2011), notes the growing importance of any disconnect between our cannabinoid systems, healthcare, and what we weigh.
When we were writing The Cannabis Papers, recalled Bryan W. Brickner (part of Publius), we thought of the book as 36 spokes (chapters) with the Introduction and Potscript forming the hub of the wheel: the human cannabinoid system works in a similar manner.
Body systems have to work together, continued Brickner. Imagine the digestive, endocrine and circulatory systems all in need at once; since the cannabinoid system modulates all other systems in the body (it hears them, so to speak), it works as the hub a central part that energies radiate from to balance our diet and health.
According to research, the cannabinoid system facilitates energy intake (diet) and enhances energy storage and expenditure by influencing lipid and glucose metabolism.
With the 2011 publication of The Cannabis Papers, noted Brickner, we knew what the science was saying that our ignorance was hurting us and that it impacted things like obesity. Now, two years later, in the midst of the Affordable Healthcare implementation, I think wed all be healthier, wealthier and wiser if we took a look inside ourselves at our hub and start seeing the cannabinoids that are in all of us.
Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include The Promise Keepers (1999), Article the first of the Bill of Rights (2006), and The Book of the Is (2013).
The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.

Question by mtq3691: How does US military health care really work?
I want to know how US military health care really works. Are there long waiting lines up to a month long and is it good as health care that normal civilians get? Are there differences between active duty and veteran health care?
Answer by SpArKy
The military health care is threw Tricare (www.tricare.mil) It pays for military personal (or their family) like insurance. If your actually getting treated my a military medic its not as long of a wait as civilian people, but its not as effeciant (and allot more painful!)
Veterans usually also get tricare, where they are seen by civilain doctors, just the GOV pays for it

Question by Lover: How does the health care system work in Singapore?
Is health care in Singapore free like in the UK and other European countries? Or do people have to pay to get check ups, have surgery, use the hospital, etc?
What if somebody is poor and they can’t afford to pay for health care?
And what happens if somebody is living in Singapore but is not a Singaporean citizen?
Answer by baba
In Singapore there is no free health care. We pay
for all the services however citizen pay much less.
All working singaporean will have an government run insurance
(the citizen themselves contribute to the cost of insurtainsurance will ensure citizen will not overly burden by too much medical cost.
For Singaporeans there are safeguards to ensure everyone can have reasonable care.
non citizen pay more or can choose to have private insurance.
I am a Singaporean
