Vaccination Myths and Facts

You may have completed your vaccinations when you were a child, but do you know that vaccines are not only for kids but for adults, too? Vaccines are among the most cost-effective health interventions available. They help ensure optimum health.

 

“Vaccines provide heightened protection against diseases, disabilities and even death. They prepare the body to fight diseases without exposing the person to the symptoms. Many believe immunizations are for children only. But you are never too old to get vaccinated. Newer vaccines are being developed and booster shots may be necessary to maintain the efficacy of certain vaccines. Vaccination is important especially if you have a chronic disease, are pregnant, sexually active, or if your work requires you to travel to places where you can be exposed to different diseases,” says MediCard president and CEO Dr. Nicky Montoya.

 

MediCard, a leading HMO provider in the country, debunks some myths on vaccinations:

On Gaming and Trash Talks

I am a gamer since 2006. I’ve become addicted to FreeStyle Online Street Basketball Philippines and have been attending FSPH events and tournaments within Metro Manila (Philippines).  The funny part is, I am not fond of or really into watching basketball games (whether local or international) AT ALL. I just found that game sooo addicting. I spent a lot of (almost) sleepless nights at computer shops (‘coz I was just renting a house at Narnia). 🙂 I have strayed away from my life goals and it seems like there’s nothing I can do to possibly come back and make that time up. I’ve been addicted 101% on that game. I’m not a “pro” in this field, I am just hooked into the game.

 

 

I stopped playing that online game when I had kids. Priorities. Then I’ve found out that they removed FSPH and moved to an international server as FreeStyle 2. I don’t have the full (correct) details though.

 

Then, recently, my favorite game is back but now on smartphones! I was so excited! I thought to myself, I can play the game again wherever I am and even before I sleep, and still can do my daily routines and obligations. It’s named Freestyle 2 Basketball Hero.

It’s almost similar to the old FSPH, though there are still a lot of rooms for improvement. It’s been 3 seasons since I started playing this addictive game. I’ve been playing alone (without any guilds) until I’ve reached level 38. They said that max level is 50, though I am not sure of it yet. Then, about two weeks ago, I finally found a club to join!

The Dangers of Side Effects Presented as Main Effects

In the medical world, proper use of words is highly called for because a simple mistake could complicate things usually unwanted for the patients. Because this field has full of jargons that mostly are too technical to not easily be sifted and digested by the general public, putting them in a layman’s term is indeed helpful.

 

A good example of which are the words “side effect” and “main effect”. These, are more often than not, interchanged or used instead of the other. Doing so is not just wrong but also dangerous to the people’s health.

 

A side effect of any substance pertains to the result beyond the main or primary action that is intended by the physician giving drug prescription. The doctor, likewise, foresees this extra consequence.

 

For instance, the patient might not be conscious of the side effect of unwanted hair growth elsewhere on the body while using vasodilator drug called Minoxidil to treat hypertension. The physician, nevertheless, is very well aware about it, as well as other implications, such as burning or irritation of the eye, itching, and redness or irritation at the treated area. By and large, doctors suggest that patients should ignore the side effects unless serious and often alert the sick persons about their likelihood.

 

But not all the side effects are boon. They are bane, too, hence, they are often used as a therapeutic benefit in the pharmaceutical industry. Like the Minoxidil which, initially was developed to treat high blood pressure. People taking it reported an unusual side effect: Hair began to grow on various parts of their bodies. In this case, the downside of the drug is controlled and employed for a beneficial and therapeutic effect judiciously. It is noted that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved prescription of two percent (2%) Minoxidil topical solution for hair loss in men in 1988 and for women in 1992.

 

An adverse effect, on the other hand, is identified as an outcome wherein the reaction occurs over and beyond the main and wanted action of a medicine. Both the physician and the patient don’t know about it as a consequence of taking such treatment. It can happen simply due to incorrect dosage. Undesirably, this is very harmful as it can exacerbate the prognosis of the disease. Occasionally, if the adverse effect is too serious, there might be a need for hospitalization.
