BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:




The U.S. decline in cigarette smoking could be stalling, while the adult vaping rate appears to be rising, according to a government report released last week.About 14% of U.S adults were cigarette smokers last year, the third year in a row the annual survey found that rate. But health officials said a change in the methodology make it hard to compare that to the same 14% reported for 2017 and 2018.The adult smoking rate last saw a substantial drop in 2017, when it fell from 16% the year before.The new figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mean there are more than 34 million adult smokers in the U.S.Meanwhile, about 4.5% of adults were counted as current e-cigarette users last year – about 11 million people. That rate appears to be up from 3.2% in 2018 and 2.8% in 2017. But again, officials said that comparing 2019 with earlier years is difficult because of the survey change.The CDC figures are based on responses from about 32,000 people.Health officials have long called tobacco use the nation’s leading cause of preventable disease and death.








About 14% of U.S. adults were cigarette smokers last year, for the third year in a row. Meanwhile, the adult vaping rate still appears to be rising, according to a new government report.

Need a Covid-19 Nurse? That’ll Be $8,000 a Week

She remembers her employers telling her and her colleagues to “suck it up” as they struggled to care for six patients each and patched their protective gear with tape until it fully fell apart. The $800 or so a week she took home no longer felt worth it.”I was not sleeping and having the most anxiety in my life,” said Tripeny. “I’m like, ‘I’m gonna go where my skills are needed and I can be guaranteed that I have the protection I need.'” In April, she packed her bags for a two-month contract in then-Covid hot spot New Jersey, as part of what she called a “mass exodus” of nurses leaving the suburban Denver hospital to become traveling nurses. Her new pay? About $5,200 a week, and with a contract that required adequate protective gear.Months later, the offerings — and the stakes — are even higher for nurses willing to move. In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, nurses can make more than $6,200 a week. A recent posting for a job in Fargo, North Dakota, offered more than $8,000 a week. Some can get as much as $10,000.Early in the pandemic, hospitals were competing for ventilators, Covid tests and personal protective equipment. Now, sites across the country are competing for nurses. The fall surge in Covid cases has turned hospital staffing into a sort of national bidding war, with hospitals willing to pay exorbitant wages to secure the nurses they need. That threatens to shift the supply of nurses toward more affluent areas, leaving …

Jessy, Iza and Alden share their health and wellness journeys

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Based on a study by a multinational insurance and investment company entitled “Understanding Filipinos’ Sentiments Toward Health and Critical Illness,” there is a mismatch between one’s desire to live healthy and their actual lifestyles. Likewise, there is a gap between expected expenses, in the event of critical illness, and how much they are actually able to save.
Jessy Mendiola worked on her health after grappling with societal beauty standards.
In an up-close-and-personal virtual meet organized by Manulife Philippines, celebrities Alden Richards, Iza Calzado and Jessy Mendiola shared their health goals, habits, tips, personal experiences and even discussed challenges they’ve faced to give Filipinos insights into starting their wellness journeys based on their needs. The said webinar, dubbed “Flex Your Future: Personalize your journey to health and wellness” was held in line with the launch of the insurance company’s latest product HealthFlex.
Iza Calzado prioritized her health after surviving Covid-19.
Calzado shared her story as a survivor of Covid-19, and what she went through after testing positive. While it derailed many of her plans, the support of her husband, and the care and service of medical workers helped her make it through the ordeal.
“I’m supposedly healthy. But there are a few things that I was lacking in. They say you should eat well, that’s true, I eat well. I also work out, which can also be a problem because I work out even when I’m tired because of the pressure from the industry. But …

An eco-friendly home makes a healthy one

An earth-friendly approach to your home isn’t just good for the environment. Making minor adjustments can enhance your enjoyment and comfort while reducing your electric bill.Harness the sun’s rays. There’s a reason bright rooms with plenty of natural light tend to be warmer: That light carries heat. Although the effect is less in the winter than in the summer months due to the sun’s position in relation to the earth, those rays can help warm a room (even on chilly Miami winter mornings). Throw back the curtains and let the light stream in. Not only will you capture some natural warmth, a bright, airy room requires less electric light, so you’ll save on electricity, too.Swap out cleaning products. While daily cleaners are often top of mind when considering your health and the environment, don’t overlook other types of cleaners, such as your laundry detergent. Plant-based options free of dyes and perfumes that are hypoallergenic, such as All Free Clear Pure Liquid Detergent, are a good choice for people with sensitive skin.Get smart about technology. Not only do smart devices add convenience to your home, they can be highly effective tools for helping manage energy usage. Programmable thermostats are especially useful because you can set them to automatically adjust temperatures when you’re away from home, but other devices like smart lights can also be programmed to recognize motion or adjust at certain times of day to reduce energy consumption in unused …
