I felt it necessary to bring this important resource to the attention of our 150,000 readers.” Established in 1975, Soldier of Fortune Magazine is the industry leader in military and protective services publications.

If you wonder what it’s like fighting with the US Marine Corps Expeditionary Forces in Iraq, you are in for a hair raising ride when you read Leatherneck Publishing’s latest book release by Gunnery Sergeant, now 1st Sgt Patrick Tracy. A seasoned 19-year Marine Corps Warrior of many battles, GySgt Tracy takes you second by second on heart pounding, breath stopping missions through the streets of Ramadi seeking out the terrorists who hide in the shadows of inhumanity. Around the next corner awaits a surprise ambush, a massive fire fight or a little child wired for your touch. GySgt Tracy is a master at describing each moment as he lived it. He recorded each event in his personal mission log over a seven month tour of duty in one of the hottest combat zones, Ramadi, Iraq.

“Street Fight in Iraq” relates with great candor the unvarnished realities of dealing with day to day combat in and around Ramadi. You will be shocked, fascinated, outraged and frustrated when you read about the fight for Democracy and Peace in Iraq. This book is about Marines who made the journey to combat and the unbelievable events that followed.

Life with Teens Magazine Highlights the Steps to Prevent Teen Concussions

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 31, 2013

TeenLife Media, a print and online media company that offers comprehensive information and resources for parents and teenagers features the article Getting A-Head of Concussions in the spring issue of Life with Teens magazine. It provides excellent tips for parents and teenagers on the preventative measures on and off of the field when engaging in sports.

“Spring is the perfect time for everyone to become more active, but also more safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 3.8 million sports- and recreation-related concussions occur in the United States each year. But many more get undetected or unreported. That’s why, we feel that it is so important to educate parents and teens today on what to look for if a head injury occurs,” states Marie Schwartz, Founder of TeenLife Media, LLC.

Experts say most youths do well after a sports-related concussionas long as they leave play immediately, seek medical care, and let their brains heal before returning to the field, rink, or court. Children who sustain repeat concussions are at risk for life-changing problems, including brain damage, even death.

Here are some steps parents and athletes can take to help prevent concussions while enjoying youth sports:

Play smart. Athletes should follow the coachs safety rules, practice good sportsmanship, and wear correct protective equipment (helmets, padding, etc.) that fits and is well maintained.

Get strong. There is evidence that neck and shoulder strengthening can help athletes stabilize their heads after an impact, notes William Meehan, M.D., director of the Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention and the Sports Concussion Clinic at Boston Childrens Hospital. He also recommends staying hyperaware (keep your head on a swivel) during play.

Study up. Know the signs and symptoms, which may not appear until hours or days after an injury. Remember that concussions rarely involve losing consciousness; even a ding to the head can be serious. Also, familiarize yourself with your school or league concussion policiesincluding whether they conduct preseason neurocognitive tests like ImPACT to measure an athletes memory, concentration, and reaction times.

See a doctor. If you suspect a concussion, get medical help right away. A primary care physician with experience managing head injuries is a good place to start, but see a specialist if symptoms worsen.

Be patient. Resting the body and brain after a concussion is critical. Students should not return to play or school until cleared by a medical professional. Recoverymeaning all symptoms are gone (both while resting and exercising) and balance and brain function are restoredtypically takes 7 to 10 days.

Communicate. Let coaches know if your teen has had previous head injuries in any sport. And if your child complains about concussion-type symptoms, take that seriously.

Yourwellness Magazine Investigates WHO Alcohol Reduction Strategy

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 April 2013

When alcohol is consumed to high degree, it is responsible for 2.5 million deaths each year. Alcohol-related causes account for 9% of all deaths among young people between the age of 15 and 29, and drinking it is the leading risk factor for diseases in the Western Pacific and the Americas and the second largest in Europe. Alcohol has also been linked to many serious social and developmental issues, such as violence, child neglect and abuse, and absenteeism in the workplace.

As a result of these shocking statistics, WHO has released a global strategy aiming to improve the wellbeing of individuals, communities and society as a whole by reducing the harmful use of alcohol. WHO member states are demonstrating their collective commitment to achieve this aim by following a global strategy based on evidence-based policies and interventions. These include improvements in leadership, awareness and commitment; health services response; community action; drinkdriving policies and countermeasures; marketing of alcoholic beverages; pricing policies; reducing the negative consequences of drinking and alcohol intoxication; and more.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine took a closer look at the health effects of various beverages, finding a potential positive outcome of drinking alcohol, albeit in moderation. Yourwellness Magazine reported that women who drink one glass of an alcoholic beverage a day, and men who drink two, may be protecting themselves against dementia and Alzheimers disease.

According to Yourwellness Magazine, Though scientists arent sure why, drinking in moderation helps to prevent the gaps that form when brain cells die as we age, which means your brain can transmit nerves more efficiently. However, the article also noted that, when consumed in high doses, alcohol kills brain cells which can cause brain damage and potentially permanent memory loss.

Yourwellness Magazine Explores Investigation of Sugar Pills as Child Vaccinations

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 6 May 2013

Last week, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) presented a comprehensive six-year plan, the first plan to eradicate all types of polio disease both wild poliovirus and vaccine-derived cases simultaneously. Global leaders and individual philanthropists demonstrated their confidence in the plan by pledging close to three-quarters of the plans projected US$ 5.5 billion cost over six years. The plan enable over a billion children to be vaccinated, improve childhood immunisation and stop all poliovirus transmission before polio-free countries become re-infected.

World Health Organization Director-General Margaret Chan commented, After millennia battling polio, this plan puts us within sight of the endgame. We have new knowledge about the polioviruses, new technologies and new tactics to reach the most vulnerable communities. The extensive experience, infrastructure and knowledge gained from ending polio can help us reach all children and all communities with essential health services.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine reported on an investigation, which recently found that a homeopathic pharmacy, endorsed by the Queen and Prince Charles, has been advertising sugar pills as childhood vaccines. As a result of the investigation, specialist retailer Ainsworths has been told to stop labelling a number of their homeopathic products with the name of childhood illnesses, or as vaccines for those ailments.

Yourwellness Magazine reported, Amongst the remedies labelled were Meningitis Vac Hib, Measles Vaccine, Rubella Vaccine, Pertussin and Pertussis Vaccine, which is the scientific name for whooping cough, hence the governments medicines regulator stepped in. The findings also included evidence that the companys owner, Anthony Pinkus, was prepared to recommend homeopathic pills to parents as an alternative to the whooping cough vaccination. Yourwellness Magazine noted that 13 babies died of whooping cough last year, with the UK experiencing the worst outbreak of the disease since the 1980s.

Yourwellness Magazine noted the views of Professor Edzard Ernst, an expert on complementary medicine: Homeopaths say some sort of energy stimulates the body to heal itself. That is a very nice theory but its not supported by any clinical evidence and the clinical trials dont support it either. One of these products is to protect or to treat meningitis. That is a condition that is potentially fatal. Ineffective treatment for fatal disease is life-threatening.
