TROM: 2B-H - Ideas and Situations - Health (2.0)

[HEALTH] Consultations, medications, treatments, surgeries... everything costs. In the monetary system the status of a human being doesn't matter. If your life is in danger and you have no money you could die even though a cure exists. Perhaps this situation, where our human life is measured with papers of no value, will be passed in history as being the most absurd situation mankind has ever had to deal with. In the documentary "SICKO" you can see the terrifying reality in America where doctors are paid to get rid of patients and also save some money for medical insurance companies. In addition to this, the monetary system limits medical technology as well as research. Here are two simple examples created and perpetuated by the monetary system. That shows how this kind of system, where profit is beyond anything else, leads to detrimental situations for the human species. Alcohol and tobacco are two drugs sold in this system which are harmful for the human body. 9th place, the commonly used and still quite popular drug, tobacco. At around 5 £ a packet there are over 10 million smokers in the UK, and it is responsible for over 114 000 deaths a year. A lot of people have criticized us for putting tobacco into the... ah... MANSA paper. We did it because we thought it was important we put in a drug that most people have experience of. And so then, they could judge the relative harms and safeties of other drugs in relation to tobacco. Smoking alone kills more than drugs, alcohol, HIV, suicide, homicide and car crashes combined. Approximately 1 of every 2 livelong smokers will eventually die from smoking. If current trends continue 5 million children alive today in the UK will die prematurely of tobacco related illnesses. If you smoke 3 or 4 cigarettes you are likely to be addicted for life. You are unlikely to be able to be what some people call a "social smoker". You are likely to spend the rest of your days trying to give up. Nicotine is probably the most addictive substance we have currently... ah... amongst all the substances. At number 5 alcohol. Around since the earliest days of civilization it is used by over 2 thirds of the UK population and is implicated in around 40 000 deaths each year. The problem is that when people think about alcohol... is that... they think about the chap that's sitting over there in a doorway with a bottle of cider. They don't think of the people that go out after work every night and they can't function... Before they go home they need to have those 3 or 4 or maybe 5 drinks... About the couple that comes home from work, and the first thing they do every night is open a bottle of wine. Alcohol is probably the biggest problem drug we face today. I think in terms of the public's health it's the biggest public health problem we face. I don't think it's the individual. I don't think we can blame them. I think it's the fact that alcohol is so cheap and it's so available. And I think as a society we pay lip service to the problems. We almost lough at the young person drunk in the street. We lough at... ah... the hangover that we had from yesterday's drinking. Alcohol is a sedative and its effects are seen on the brain within 5 minutes. It effects several neurotransmitters including dopamine which is found in large quantities in the brain's reward pathway. Stimulation of this system not only causes pleasure but also gives alcohol its addictive qualities. Alcohol acts as a depressant but at low doses removes inhibitions so making the person sociable and talkative. As doses increase, speech begins to slur. It effects coordination and brings on nausea and vomiting. Long term use can lead to damage of the heart, liver and stomach. I think, if alcohol was introduced today it would certainly have many more sanctions on it than it currently has. It would probably be classified. It is the only drug now which we actively encourage people to use, which we under-price... ah... which we sell aggressively and... and yet we... we pick up the cons... ...pick up the damage all the time. There are currently over 180 000 alcohol related hospital admissions each year. Deaths have nearly doubled over the past decade. Around 40% of A & E admissions are down to alcohol and the cost to the NHS is up to 1.7 billion £ a year. And yet, we carry on drinking. Professor Theodora Duka has been studying a new phenomena in our abuse of alcohol: the affects of binge drinking. [Prof THEODORA DUKA Experimental Psychologist, University of Sussex] We started studying binge drinkers and compare them to non binge drinkers. It is the prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain that develops so late in life. The damage being caused comes from the constant stopping and starting technique of binge drinking. For example, drinking in excess all weekend but not at all during the week. When you at one session drink so much alcohol then a lot of alcohol, which is toxic, is absorbed going to the brain and then damages the cells. Alcohol is then the next day slowly eliminated the brain is challenged to produce a lot of substances which can be toxic and damaging for the brain. So, is it better for you to drink constantly than to binge drink? If you had to make the choice, yes. That's what I'm trying to say, yes. Ideally you shouldn't drink too much, whatever you do. Because drinking continuously a lot is also bad. If in a week you drink... let's say... two bottles of wine it's better to drink them day by day through the whole week than two bottles of wine in the weekend. Remember that those two drugs were developed and perpetuated inside a system we call the monetary system. Gee, we oughta do something, Fred. OK, How's about takin' a nap? Hey, I got a better idea! Let's take a Winston break! That's it! Winston is the one filter cigarette that delivers flavor 20 times a pack. Winston's got that filter blend! Yeah, Fred. Filter blend makes the big taste difference, and only Winston has it. Up front where it counts. Here. Ahead of the pure white filter. Winston packs rich tobacco specially selected and specially processed for good flavor in filter smokin' Yeah buddy, Winston tastes good like a cigarette should. The Flintstones have been brought to you by Winston. America's best selling, best tasting filter cigarette. ♪ Winston tastes good like a cigarette should. ♪ Good health is described as having a fit body, healthy digestive system and well exercised heart. But what about our brain? People are struggling to take care of their body shape, thinking that this is healthy. But they are forgetting something more essential. The brain. If your body health is very good but you are a failed child or from a very primitive tribe or live your whole life based on artificial values then you need to ask yourself: what does your body health support? Current knowledge indicates that our brain is as our personality. If that is the case, then what do you think about the stress caused by the monetary system? You may well have medical insurance and feel very healthy. But if you are spending eight hours or maybe more a day working in a place that you don't like, or have a repetitive job, then your medical insurance is of no help. You are still damaging your brain. Don't forget that. Your way of thinking may have a critical impact on the health of other body parts. Forget Madonna. If you want an example of a well preserved woman in a certain age look no further than Christine Fryer. At 95 years young she can do this... this... and this. Wow! I can't even do that. You can take care of your body health for all your life and emphasize less on your brain, on the information you absorb and your way of thinking. So why do you do this? I've always done some sort of sport. Always. And I like it... You know... And... Oh I would be bored to death at home. No chance of that though, and even when using the rowing machine she found time to flirt with our camera man. Don, you make me feel I wish I was about 50 years younger. Or you can pay attention to your brain's well being and change your way of life, change and improve yourself and enjoy your existence by taking advantage of what a human being is. If you want to live on organic food and you have a community of 40 000 people living on organic food, they're all healthier. But mentally they're not. Physically they're in perfect shape. But mentally they've learning if they'd made metaphysical temples and all that. You know what I mean? So, hum... you might check out different cultures and say, yes they are healthy physically, mentally they're aberrated. You think you know what I mean? You know Hitler was a vegetarian, don't you? He... ah... wouldn’t believe in eating living things. But, hum... his brain was not better than it was. So if a person eats nothing but organic food, never had cancer, never had heart disease but was fucked up at here, has associative disease You know what that means? Doesn't like Swedes, or Catholics, or gays. That's associative disease. There are many people that try to study the mind. You can't study the mind. It's like taking a... ah... primitive technology. Way back. A hundred years ago.
