Highlighting that there will always be a demand for drugs and the high level of harms associated with drugs targetting the most vulnerable.

Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, October 31, 2013 1:58 PM

Drug use ought to be considered a public health issue rather than criminal one. Prohibition is expensive but has little or no effect on the supply and demand for drugs. The supply of dangerous drugs can be addressed by legalizing certain clean drugs. This will cause a shift in demand from dangerous illegal drugs to clean legal drugs, and the decrease in the demand of illegal drugs will automatically reduce the supply of them. It's a matter of harm-reduction. The next step is implementing public health interventions to make drug use less desirable and less accepted as a social norm, similar to the way smoking has been addressed in the recent years.

Six months of fish oil reverses liver disease in children with intestinal failure

Six months of fish oil reverses liver disease in children with intestinal failure | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Isabella Piscione was one of the first patients at UCLA to receive the fish oil treatment under compassionate use. Her outcome with the treatment paved the way for researchers to establish the six-month protocol. Because of multiple surgeries due to an obstruction in her intestines, Isabella was left with only 10 centimeters of intestine. She depended on intravenous nutrition for survival, which unfortunately resulted in liver damage. 

 

When Isabella started the fish oil treatment, she was just over 6 months old and was listed for a liver and bowel transplant. Within a month of starting the treatment, her condition started to improve. By six months, her liver had healed, and she no longer needed a transplant.

Replacing soy oil (most likely from GMO soybeans) is definitely the right thing to do!

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, October 28, 2013 2:32 PM

So for intravenous nutrition the medical protocol uses soy oil as a source of fatty acids. There is only one problem. That way of feeding often causes liver damage. 

Replace the soy oil with fish oil and the liver damage naturally reverses! New, healthy liver without a transplant.
