I fully agree the USA has the 3rd worst health care in the world. Well said, old chap!

That is precisely why you see planeloads of US citizens each day flying off to Cuba, India, Yemen, Afghanistan, Guatemala, and Zimbabwe for medical treatment. It's also very telling that you see clean operating rooms in the USA when it's been well proven in the bowels of Calcutta and Uzbekistan that a filthy scalpel is a happy scalpel.

I don't want to a smart Alec but I heard a programme on the radio last year about Americans flying to Cuba for some sort of specialised treatment. I can't remember what the treatment was for unfortunately, some sort of cancer treatment sticks in my mind. Just saying.

Regards Tyrone.

for standing all day you need custom molded insoles for your shoes. At the very least get the dr schols at walmart for $50 (the ones where you stand on the pad and it tells you which ones to buy). I got custom molded ones for $200 at a ski area for my snowboard boots. I then put them in my everyday shoes and cant believe how much better I feel.

Eat healthy and exercise. Protien is a must. Protien intake should be 1 gram for every LB of body weight daily. 170Lb man needs 170 grams of protien a day or at least .75 grams for every lb of body weight. 1 gram per lb is more for lifting weights but it will make you feel better and live longer for sure.

Lay off the sugar/carbs. Eat your veggies!!!

Go to the doctor first and tell them how you feel and what you want to get out of it.

Only a noob would stand up in a canoe and fire a rifle. Experienced hunters will kneel. Who cares if you get your gun wet? The show guns are back home. You have the old sporterized 30-06 with scratches, dents, and little bluing. But when you point the barrel down the water runs out. And its taken more deer than Billy Clinton had dears.

It happens. My buddies wife lost her dad that way. When she was about 15 her dad drown and they found a dead moose and his gun was discharged, so they figured he had shot and flipped the canoe, or just flipped out of it..
I had my old 98 at the bottom of a canoe mostly under water.. about 3 miles deep in a swamp in the winter.. yes we both almost bot the last ticket that day.. Gun is sill fine, an 8mm 98. mostly original except for the bent bolt. My top gun is a custom 98-06, next my 243 Winchester.

Yeah, I remember Americans flying to Germany back in the 80's to get laetrile treatments for cancer. And Hugo Chavez, most notably, went to Cuba for cancer treatment. And the Smartest Man What Ever Lived, Steve Jobs, chose to forego modern USA medicine in favor alternative treatments. The problem is....they all died. People with terminal illnesses have nothing to lose after a point so the 'Non-USA' medicines get a lot of press. But there's absolutely no arguing with the statistics.

That made me laugh, GregSY.

But it's a hard drug to get off, once you start.

Doctors say there are serious shortcomings, if you ever try to cut the dose in half . . .


Sure. The famous author David Foster Wallace battled severe depression for much of his life....he was taking a certain medicine that worked well but caused other side effects. So at the advice of his doctor, he stopped taking it to try another medicine. It didn't work, and when he went back to his first medicine, it no longer worked either. This was all in the months leading up to his suicide.

That's the thing - nobody gets out of this world alive.

Americans go to Mexico for surgery and Canada for the pills. Do Americans still go to Sweden for surgery or has Thailand taken over that market.

Washing hands likely a major factor for a machinist health..A smoker getting more coolant and the like than a non smoker..breathing fumes likely bad ..but modern shops are much cleaner than the old shops.

Americans go to Mexico to get surgery they won't perform here. Which reminds me, did you hear about the man with five penises? His pants fit like a glove!

Safety clothes, other safety equipment?

2. What can I do in my workplace, or my employer can, and must? Ventilation, air cleaners, recuperative systems, etc? Machine cleaning, maintenance, safety?

3. What is your diet? Calorie intake, food you eat at home, lunch, on breaks? Healthy vs. Unhealthy? Food supplements, vitamins and etc.?

4. What excises you use? Phisical, mental and spiritual activity for better rest and recovery, better energy?

5. I think important thing what is the best schedule for eat, sleep, exercise, time for family and myself, etc. when working 2 - 3 shifts, overtime, work on weekend days?

On someone’s locker in the old machine shop at work, someone wrote
“Drink more piss, smoke more shit, fuck more babes, but don’t get pox”

I don’t smoke but the rest seems to work just fine.

Haha (just having a laugh)
