... Eating disorders and associated psychiatric comorbidity in elderly Canadian women. Abstract This study examined the prevalence of disordered eating symptomatology and their associations with socio-demographic characteristics and health indicators in a nationally representative sample of Canadian women aged 50 years and older. The study also examined associations of disordered eating symptomatology with comorbid mood disorders, anxiety disorders and alcohol dependence. About 2.6% of women 50–64 years old and 1.8% of women 65 years or older reported disordered eating symptomatology. Similar to findings in younger women, risk of eating disorders was strongly associated with mood and anxiety disorders. Hence, older women should be screened for symptoms of disordered eating and associated psychiatric comorbidity.

So today, thanks to a concerned and anonymous tipster, I'm going to take you on a tour of a typical table in Health Canada's latest consultation process involving putting health claims on fronts of packages. And if the majority at the table represents Big Food, can you guess what the outcomes of these consultations will be. Health Canada will be able just as it did with the Food Guide to point at a poorly designed consultation process as proof that all views were heard, while Big Food will be allowed to ensure the best possible chance to have their positions adopted as a reflection of what the consultation process itself suggested was consensus.

If you would like to return to the full story, you can read the full entry here: “ Health Canada Misses the Point ”. As for Health Canada. One thing I have not seen mentioned yet is that Health Canada does have a efficacy requirement for their “natural/traditional/alternative” products, but it is complete nonsense. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodnatur/legislation/docs/ehmg-nprh-eng.php#a8 http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodnatur/legislation/docs/tradit-eng.php#a2.8. Perhaps Canadian government will start endorsing such “natural” and “alternative” safety devices. “Authorizing homeopathic remedies, including nosodes, for use of traditional homeopathic care is a very different thing from authorizing them as alternatives to vaccines.”.

Ultraviolet radiation and tanning. Health risks related to tanning. It is important to take steps to avoid overexposure to ultraviolet radiation. Exposure to ultraviolet A and B radiation can cause sunburn, damage to your eyes and other health effects, including an increased risk of skin cancer. Health Canada does not recommend the use of tanning equipment especially for people under the age of 18. Ultraviolet radiation and tanning Ultraviolet UV radiation is a type of invisible light given off by the sun and by certain kinds of lamps like tanning beds and sun lamps. While there are differences between ultraviolet A UVA and ultraviolet B UVB, such as the depths to which they penetrate the layers of skin, both types are emitted by the sun and sun lamps, and there are risks associated with overexposure to both. Health risks related to tanning People who tan under the sun or use tanning beds and lamps are at risk of sunburn. Being exposed to UV radiation can cause your skin to age more quickly and can ...

The fight against the Canadian government's international promotion and lobbying for Quebec's Asbestos industry. Below is a list of items which are still sadly outstanding. The Conservative government, contrary to the NDP, Liberal and Green Party, has not been willing to ban the import and use of chrysotile asbestos e.g. brake linings or roof drainage pipes for high rise buildings. The federal government’s stance that “controlled use” of asbestos is possible does not meet any national or international scientific standards. Our government has spent millions to remove chrysotile asbestos from our Parliament buildings and has started to do the same for other federally owned buildings. If chrysotile asbestos is not good for a politician’s health it is not acceptable for the rest of us Canadians. The Conservative government has to establish, in ...

*  Ryu holds off Choi, wins Canadian Women's Open - The China Post
... LONDON, Canada -- South Korea's Ryu So-yeon held off compatriot Choi Na-yeon on Sunday to capture the Canadian Women's Open, snapping an LPGA win drought of more than two years. Women's Open champion whose only other prior LPGA crown came at the 2012 Toledo Classic, matched the season-low LPGA 72-hole total of 23-under par, finishing on 265 to defeat Choi by two shots. A final six-foot birdie putt at 16 produced Ryu's final margin of victory. I was sure if I made the birdie putt I was going to win it. Ryu, 24, had 27 top-10 finishes since her prior victory, 10 of them last season and nine more this year. World number two Park In-Bee, the South Korean star who captured her fifth career major title at last week's LPGA Championship, was third on 270 with Spain's Azahara Munoz fourth, another stroke adrift. Park was the first to win at 23-under this season, taking the title at Waterloo, Canada. Choi sank a 15-foot birdie putt at 15 and Ryu missed a six-foot par putt seconds later on the way to ...

*  Car crashes a risk factor for pregnant women in second trimester, Canadian study finds
... Donald Redelmeier, a senior scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences, says pregnancy causes physiological changes nausea, fatigue and insomnia that can increase the risk of driver error. New research by Redelmeier’s team involving more than half a million Ontario women shows pregnancy is associated with a substantial risk of a serious traffic accident requiring emergency care. Women in their second trimester were 42 per cent more at risk of a life-threatening crash while driving, compared to before they got pregnant, the study found. Pregnancy causes physiological changes — nausea, fatigue and insomnia — that can increase the risk of driver error, he said. For their study, the researchers identified every woman in Ontario who gave birth to a baby between 2006 and 2011. The researchers followed each woman for five years — four years before delivery and one year after delivery — for any emergency department visit due to a car crash, before, during or after pregnancy.

Right now Health Canada is sitting down with Big Food and asking them directly how best to display front of package claims that for Big Food will generate sales and for Canadians will generate confusion. On this blog in the past you've read about the Heart and Stroke Foundation's Health Check and how front-of-package labeling, even when put forth by credible organizations, can in fact do more harm than good. In the supermarket products scream out at you they're healthy, and not only do you have to navigate Health Check, but you've also got Pepsi Co.'s Smart Spot and Kraft's Sensible Solutions. So is there anything you can do. I suppose, if you're really keen, you can read the 124 page discussion paper by Health Canada and then submit your formal response back to them.

*  New cervical cancer screening guideline says start Pap tests later, screen less often
... For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care has released an updated guideline for cervical cancer screening that recommends starting screening when women are older, and screening them less often in order to avoid the harms of excessive testing. Published Monday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, the new guideline recommends that women aged 25 to 69 without symptoms of cervical cancer who are, or who have ever been, sexually active, be screened once every three years with a Pap test, which detects abnormal cells in the cervix. Neither could the task force find any data to support the argument that screening younger women helps prevent deaths from cervical cancer when they’re older. “It is likely that much of the change seen in the incidence of cervical cancer in Canada is due to screening, but early and frequent often annual cervical screening is unnecessary: other countries have achieved similar outcomes with less frequent testing and ...

C-sections alter baby's gut bacteria, may affect newborn's lifelong health, Canadian study shows. Photos 1.  A new study carried out by Canadian researchers claims that babies delivered via C-sections have a higher risk of lifelong health problems. Caesarean section births may put babies at higher risk for lifelong health problems by altering the amount of “good” bacteria in an infant’s gut, Canadian researchers are reporting. Appearing this week in Canada’s top medical journal, the finding could explain why babies delivered via C-sections are at increased risk of asthma, obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, diabetes and other illnesses. After analyzing the babies’ fecal samples, researchers found that infants born by C-section lacked a specific group of bacteria found in babies delivered vaginally. “The infant gut microbiota plays a crucial ...

Canada death-toll from cancer on the decline. Canada death-toll from cancer on the decline TORONTO — The death toll cancer takes in Canada is on the decline, fuelled in large part by the fact that lung cancer is killing fewer Canadian men than it did in earlier decades, the Canadian Cancer Society said Wednesday. “So despite all the progress that we’ve made in terms of tobacco control and despite seeing decreases in incidence mortality in men, lung cancer still has a huge impact on Canadians. The Canadian Cancer Society said it was another two decades before the smoking rate among Canadian women started to drop in the same way as it had in men. The delay means it will be awhile before Canada sees the same type of decline in lung cancer deaths among women that it is seeing among men, said Bromfield, who noted the incidence of the disease in women — the new cases found every year — has started to stabilize. Between 1988 and 2007, overall cancer death rates dropped by 21 per cent in ...

Sheryl Ubelacker, The Canadian Press  09.19.2012. For children overall, 15.1 per cent of boys were obese compared with eight per cent of girls. Photos.com / canada.com. Share Adjust Comment Print. TORONTO - Almost a third of Canadian children are either overweight or obese, says a report from Statistics Canada that bases its figures on the World Health Organization method of determining ideal weights for youth around the globe. Using data from the 2009-2011 Canadian Health Measures Survey, Thursday's report suggested 31.5 per cent of those aged five to 17 — an estimated 1.6 million young Canadians — are overweight or obese. The proportion was slightly higher among younger youth. Almost 33 per cent of five- to 11-year-olds were overweight or obese, compared to 30 per cent of those 12 to 17. The percentage of kids who were overweight — ...

How to take, view and share photos using new iPhone feature for animating still photos. New cervical cancer screening guideline says start Pap tests later, screen less often. Women who have been vaccinated with the HPV human papillomavirus vaccine also need to be screened because the shots do not protect against all forms of the virus. OTTAWA – Doctors should stop ordering yearly Pap tests for most women, and routine screening for cervical cancer in younger women should be abandoned altogether, a federal task force is recommending. For the first time in nearly 20 years, the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care has released an updated guideline for cervical cancer screening that recommends starting screening when women are older, and screening them less often in order to avoid the harms of excessive testing. But the incidence of cervical cancer in women less than 20 is low ...

Andre Picard, who writes the ‘Second Opinion’ column in the Globe and Mail made the front page this morning. His story, “When it comes to breast cancer, science trumps wishful thinking” gives us yet another opinion of yesterday’s news:  After years and years and years of having the importance of yearly mammograms and early detection drummed into our heads, the Canadian recommendations on screening are changing. What they’re now saying, in a nutshell, is that only post menopausal women should have mammograms — and less often than we’ve been told in the past. Specifically, unless you are at high risk family history of breast cancer or positive for breast cancer genes BRCA1 or BRCA2 :.  Canadian women 50 to 74 should now have mammograms every two to three years — instead of yearly from 50 – 69 as per their earlier recommendation.

That's because skin cancers — particularly the most deadly kind, melanoma — are the most common kinds of cancers in Canada. In 2014, it is estimated that 6,500 new melanoma diagnoses will be made, and 1,050 Canadians will die from this form of cancer. "Because we don't get a lot of sun in this country, skin cancer isn't top of mind for most Canadians," says Prithwish De, an epidemiologist with the Canadian Cancer Society. "There's over 80,000 skin cancer cases expected in Canada this year. And that's almost the same number of cases of the top four cancers combined — lung, breast, prostate and colorectal cancer."

(1/7810) Mycotoxin determinations on animal feedstuffs and tissues in Western Canada.

Results of examination of specimens of plant or animal origin for various mycotoxins are presented. Analyses for aflatoxins and ochratoxins were most frequently requested, usually on the basis of visible mouldiness. Aflatoxin B1 was found in one of 100 specimens at a level of 50 ppb in a sample of alfalfa brome hay. Ochratoxin A was detected in seven of 95 specimens comprising six samples of wheat at levels between 30 and 6000 ppb and one sample of hay at a level of 30 ppb. An overall detection rate of 4.2% involving significant levels of potent mycotoxins suggests that acute or chronic mycotoxicoses may occur in farm livestock or poultry more frequently than presently diagnosied.  (+info)

(3/7810) The epizootiology and pathogenesis of thyroid hyperplasia in coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) in Lake Ontario.

The thyroid glands of coho salmon collected at different stages of their anadromous migration exhibited progressive and extensive hyperplasia and hypertrophy. The incidence of overt nodule formation rose from 5% in fish collected in August to 24% in fish collected in October. The histological picture of the goiters was similar to that found in thiourea-treated teleosts and thiouracil-treated mammals. There was a concomitant, significant decrease in serum thyroxine and triiodothyronine values between September and October (thyroxine, 1.0+/-0.3 mug/100 ml and 0.4 mug/100 ml in September and October, respectively; triiodothyronine, 400.3+/-51.6 ng/100 ml and 80.2 ng/100 ml in September and October, respectively) and marked hypertrophy and hyperplasia of thyrotrophs. These data indicate a progressive hypothyroid condition which, although it may be linked to iodide deficiency, may well be enhanced by other environmental factors. The evidence for involvement of other factors is discussed.  (+info)

(4/7810) 'Home hypertension': exploring the inverse white coat response.

BACKGROUND: The classical 'white coat response' to blood pressure measurement has been studied thoroughly. However, little is known about patients showing a reverse pattern, i.e. who have lower blood pressure readings at the clinic than outside healthcare facilities. AIM: To estimate the proportion of patients whose blood pressure levels as determined by self-measurements at home are higher than those taken at the clinic and to explore possible associations with demographic, clinical, and psychological variables. METHOD: Patients consecutively attending (n = 214) an academic family medicine department in Toronto, Canada, were eligible. Subjects aged below 16 years and those on psychotropic or blood pressure-lowering agents were excluded. The clinic-home blood pressure difference (CHBPD) was calculated for each participating subject by subtracting home blood pressure from clinic blood pressure. Those who had negative values were compared with the rest of the sample. RESULTS: A considerable proportion of patients had lower blood pressure at the clinic than at home (systolic, 34.6%; diastolic, 23.8%). These subjects did not differ from the rest of the sample with regard to age, sex, levels of education attained, immigration status, body mass index, experience of current symptoms, blood pressure levels, or psychological distress. However, in patients with a 'negative CHBPD', i.e. lower blood pressure at the clinic than at home, readings taken by an automatic, self-inflating device when still at the clinic were higher than in the rest of the sample. CONCLUSION: The results point to measurement bias being at least partly responsible for higher blood pressure readings outside the clinic. Automatic measurement devices used for self/home blood pressure measurement seem to cause an alerting reaction analogous to the well-described 'white coat response'.  (+info)

(5/7810) A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues.

PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'.  (+info)

(6/7810) Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service.

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

What is Canada doing to protect Canadians against the H1N1 virus?


  • The Public Health Agency of Canada has listed this on its website (last modified April 26) "Vaccine A vaccine is any preparation intended to produce immunity to a disease by stimulating the production of antibodies. Canada has a plan for a vaccine to be produced domestically if a pandemic occurs, which will take about six months once the virus is identified. Enough pandemic vaccine will be produced to cover all Canadians." Now that the virus has been declared a pandemic, what action is the government taking?
  • Canada is not taking the pandemic seriously. Five students got the H1N1 at Coquitlam-area schools in BC. None of the schools were shut down. H1N1 is the same strain as the 1918 Spanish Flu. Look at the fatality rates of every know flu pandemic Asiatic (Russian) Flu 1889–90 1 million died, possibly H2N2 Spanish Flu 1918–20 to 40 million died, H1N1 Asian Flu 1957–58 1 to 1.5 million died, H2N2 Hong Kong Flu 1968–69 0.75 to 1 million died, H3N2 So we know at least one million people will die if there is a flu pandemic this fall and they don't want to close a school because of final exams? Canada should be cancelling the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics which is scheduled right in the peak of flu season. Washing hands is good. Preventing large groups of people from gathering is what will save lives though. A vaccine will not be ready by the winter games.


Whats the difference between the US and Canada?


  • Live in the US been to Canada its the same to me. Why can't they just join together and become the world's largest country and superpower. Just a thought.
  • Canada is more liberal. I don't think it would be a good idea to merge both.


Why is swine flu so widespread in Canada, the US and the UK compared to mainland Europe?


  • There are so few cases in France, Germany and even Spain compared to the US, UK and Canada. Do mainland European countries have different definitions of when people have contracted swine flu? Or do they just have better healthcare/hygiene? It seems like English-speaking countries are the worst hit.
  • Well gee, maybe it's because it started in Mexico and Canada and the US are on the same continent as Mexico? As for other countries, maybe they just aren't as open about reporting the numbers as Canada, the US, and UK. H1N1 isn't actually that big of a deal. The media blew it way out of proportion. Far more people die every year from regular, seasonal influenza. 45 people have died in Canada from H1N1. Anywhere between 4000-8000 Canadians die ANUALLY from the regular flu and its complications. Worldwise just over 700 people have died from H1N1. Anywhere between 250,000-500,000 people worldwide die ANUALLY from the regular flu.


How do customs and duty fees work shipping from the US to Canada?


  • Hey, If I want to do online shopping in Canada, most of it comes through the states. I am confused as to how customs and duty fees work. Could you give me an example of what I might pay, if a pair of shoes is $90 + $10 shipping and handling? How much will it cost for me once the shoes arrive at my door?
  • Hi, I don't know how your question ended up in the other-beauty section. :3 Canada has the Goods and Services Tax which is around 5% last I remember. And I think that there is a Provincial Tax I think. (I used to live in Calgary and can't remember for the sake of my life) And I've heard of the courier fee that the CP tacks on, which is around CAD $5, but I haven't noticed.


If I am 19 and from the US and I want to go to Canada to drink can I buy liquor or do I have to be a resident?


  • I am planning on going to Canada this month and am of the age in Canada. But I heard from a friend that even though I am of age I am not a resident so I can't get liquor there. Is this true?
  • Yes, you can. But the number of deaths caused by drunkers in Canada is bad. Don't become one of them. The MDA and MPA are 18 in Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec, in all other provinces the MDA and MPA are set at 19. Drinking by minors under adult supervision is permitted in licensed premises in the provinces of Manitoba and New Brunswick and at home in Prince Edward Island, Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Saskatchewan.


What is a cheap, good tasting alcohol that is available in Canada?


  • What is the best alcohol that I can get for only around $10-12 in Canada? I know that I cannot get a very good one, but what is the best cheap one that I can get? I prefer high alcohol content liquors like vodka or spiced rum but things like sctoch and champagne are also good. Please no beer suggestions.
  • I only ever drink good beer, wine or spirits - regardless of price. As Sir Henry Royce said, "In the end the best is cheapest for the quality will remain long after the price has been forgotten". Of course, this doesn't mean that the most expensive is necessarily the best - quite often the cheapest is the best. So I suggest you start with some of the suggestions made here until you find the drink you like best - and forget about the price. I will be in Canada (BC) in a couple of weeks and am looking forward to exploring further the drinks scene.


Canada use health promotion messages to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use?


  • How and Why? Ran out of room, here is the question... Why and how does Canada use health promotion messages to increase awareness in young adults about the dangers of illicit drug use?
  • Not only a Canada but also many countries are trying to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use? The govt..will go with print media,electronic media they will try to explain the people in different ways about side effects of illicit drugs.If they want they call the celebrities to increase awareness in the youth about the dangers of illicit drug use?


Do you have a recipe for Naunamo bars from Canada?
