Some people know from an early age that they enjoy serving the public and nurturing others. That can lead some to land jobs as pre-school teachers or even guidance counselors.

Whether you don’t think that you’d be a good fit for a medical school program or just want to start work as soon as possible, ADU Online is one of the best schools for professionals in the medical field. You can see patients who are in immediate need of medical services and help them to make a full recovery, even without being a licensed doctor. With a radiologic sciences online degree, your job as a radiologist will be integral in the field of medicine, so find out how you can start a new career.

Enrolling In a Radiologic Science Program

If you want to become a radiologist, you need to earn your diploma. Whether you are already attending college or haven’t seen the inside of a classroom since high school, learning radiologic science will be exciting. You can focus all of your energy on going to school or make up a schedule that easily allows you to earn credits while you keep a full-time job. While going to school to learn radiologic science, you will actually get to know your instructors and it won’t be long before you see just how dedicated they are to your success as well.

Getting the Help You Need To Graduate on Time

As soon as you get into a program to learn radiologic science, you will then decide on a course schedule. Full-time students generally graduate faster, but it can also be difficult for them to work more than part-time hours. On the other hand, going to school for radiology on a part-time basis might give you the time that is necessary for really immersing yourself in your classes, potentially leading to better grades. It makes no difference if you earn a bachelors in radiologic sciences on a part-time, full-time, or accelerated class schedule. What is critical is staying on track so that you can fulfill the timeline that you created for yourself. Never be afraid to ask for support and help if you need assistance while earning a degree in radiology, as the program that you enroll in wants you to feel that you are important.

Gaining Your Footing In a Career That Is Growing Fast

Sometimes new doctors may need to wait until a position opens up at a nearby medical facility before they are able to begin their careers. Registered nurses who have earned their degrees also often contemplate becoming traveling nurses so that they can get much-needed job experience. As a radiologist, you are going to find plenty of jobs available to you and you will not need to make many concessions to find employment.

Work in a hospital as a radiologist and become a medical professional in your early 20s or even your late 60s. As long as you are, employers in the medical field will be happy to hire you. Get more information on what radiology courses you can start taking and begin a fabulously enjoyable career.  

 
Stranger Danger; what’s in your medicine bottle? Tags: medicine bottle medical marijuana diabetes mmj

Despite growing awareness of the dangers of harsh, synthetic medications and treatments, the majority of the public are still banking on the promises of cure via chemical interventions.

Unfortunately, these avenues can result in unforeseen and equally serious conditions.

The public puts a lot of trust in our healthcare professionals, so if the doctor or revered celebrity spokesperson recommends it, who are we to argue? Especially if the drug does a quicker job than a natural remedy, as time is money and quick fixes are eagerly sought-after.

Of course, chemical medicine provides a means to an end for certain illnesses – chemotherapy being a good example. Many people see this a price worth paying, whereas other cases are not so balanced and patients end up resentful and in more discomfort than before.

One of the most egregious examples of this bad trade-off is Actos. Actos is a Thiazolidinedione. It’s a bit of a mouthful, but let’s break it down.

Thiazolidinediones are a class of medication claimed to improve the symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes sufferers by balancing sugar levels in the blood cells; therefore decreasing the need for insulin supplementation and easing symptoms of uneven blood sugar levels in the patient.

Takeda Pharmaceuticals produced one strand of this medication, pioglitazone, and marketed it under the name of Actos.

Scary fact: since 1980, the number of people recorded with symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes in America alone has quadrupled, and though the utilization of insulin supplements in the 1920s and government efforts to decrease the sale of sugary foods has helped, there is still a huge problem.

Available only on prescription, Actos was the most popular treatment for Type 2 Diabetes with 3.4billion sales in 2009, and for a short time, seemed harmless.

Consumers of the drug had a nasty shock, however, when French researchers found there was a link between Actos (or similar variants such as Actoplus Met or Duetact) and bladder cancer.  

Now patients are having to rely on their Actos attorney to claim compensation for a number of side effects, including Edema, Hypoglycaemia, heart and liver problems, brittle bones, increased ovulation and many more. Click here for more information on Actos Lawsuits from Napoli PLLC.

Although various European countries went so far as to recall the drug, - the FDA did not. The association did enforce a labelling change, to highlight the risks, but it fell on deaf ears for many people, who were already taking Actos regularly and wouldn’t notice additional content on the side of the bottle.

Who can blame people for not checking the bottle? We all know that eating fast food every day could pose risks to our health, and we are likely to accept these consequences. However, if medicine is meant to make us better, then why is it making us worse?

When you are faced with a debilitating illness, the best thing you can do is research treatment choices before you consult your family doctor on the best treatment. It may be that you can’t go natural in every case, but you should weigh your options.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a condition as a result of poorly advised treatment from a doctor or an independent retailer, you should take immediate action. It’s never too late for that.

If you have an appetite then vitamin C rich food is a better option because you'll be receiving additional nutrients. Foods like oranges, guavas and bell peppers all have a high vitamin C content.

#4 Echinacea

This popular herb has been used by native Americans for hundreds of years as a general 'cure all' and with good reason. Extracts of Echinacea seem to have an effect on the body's immune system with research showing an increase in white blood cells amongst users. Echinacea is recommended to be taken at the early stages of flu as this is where it's seen to be most effective.

Vaccines are essential to break the nationwide spread of flu in the United States. However, vaccines may not always work against all strains of flu, so be sure to consult your physician and try out some of our recommended therapies.

Gary Storck: Obama could legalize cannabis with stroke of pen Tags: obama legalize legalization cannabis marijuana weed medicine
Dear Editor: On June 20, a House committee voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over his failure to release records of “Operation Fast & Furious,” which ended up funneling numerous weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
 
While putting guns in criminal hands is certainly bad policy, so is lying to the House Judiciary Committee, as Holder recently did. In testimony about the Obama administration’s crackdown on medical cannabis providers in the 17 states and Washington, D.C., where it is now legal, Holder falsely stated that federal actions were limited to those in violation of both state and federal law. That was not true.
 
In Colorado, federal authorities forced the closure of numerous medical cannabis facilities because they were within the federal definition of 1,000 feet from schools. These businesses were all state and local licensed and complied with all of Colorado’s stringent requirements. Yet federal authorities found a way to subvert state law and close these taxpaying businesses that provided hundreds of jobs.
 
With hundreds of medical cannabis access points that supplied medical-quality cannabis now gone, many patients are finding themselves back buying cartel-supplied pot on the streets, despite their respective state laws.
 
A recent poll found that only 15 percent of Americans support the Obama administration crackdown, with 74 percent saying, “Respect state laws.”
 
Why is the Obama administration siding with the overwhelming minority on an issue that the president himself had said should not be a priority? It was Obama’s promise to take a hands-off approach that sealed the deal for my vote and millions of other Americans in November 2008.
 
Obama agreed to ignore federal immigration law in his recent pronouncement allowing younger immigrants to remain in the U.S. However, as the executive branch has the power to reschedule or deschedule controlled substances, Obama does not need to ignore any laws and could literally legalize cannabis with the stroke of a pen. What is holding him back?
