LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19, 2012 /3BL Media/ - Responding to disproportionate risks that African American and Hispanic children face in motor vehicle-related crashes, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Toyota and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center today announced the expansion of the groundbreaking safety education program Buckle Up for Life to Orange County (Calif.). Buckle Up for Life – or Abrochate a la Vida in Spanish – is the only national program of its kind. This is the first time the program will be available in Orange County, joining seven other Buckle Up for Life locations nationwide. Research analyzed by medical experts at Cincinnati Children’s – a national leader in pediatric and adolescent medicine – shows that, due to multiple factors, African American and Hispanic children are significantly less likely than non-African American and non-Hispanic children to be buckled up in seat belts or car seats. Key Facts Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children in the U.S. between the ages of 1 and 12.[i] Three out of every four car seats are not used or installed correctly[ii] and almost 50 percent of fatally injured children were unrestrained at the time of a crash.[iii] African American and Hispanic children are as much as ten times more likely than Caucasian children to be unrestrained while traveling in a car. [iv] In crashes involving fatalities in children under 14, seat belt use is lower among African Americans than among all other race or ethnic groups.[v] Hispanic children are significantly less likely to be buckled up than non-Hispanic children across all age groups.[vi] In one pilot city, Buckle Up for Life nearly tripled the number of children properly restrained in seat belts and car seats among the families who participated.[vii] The program was founded and is jointly led by Cincinnati Children’s and Toyota, in coordination with local hospital partners, such as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Toyota and local hospital partners are doubling the reach of Buckle Up for Life The expansion of Buckle Up for Life to Orange County is part of an effort by Toyota and Cincinnati Children’s to double the program’s reach. The Orange County program joins other new programs in Las Vegas, Nev.; Philadelphia, Pa.; and Houston, Texas. Buckle Up for Life programs are already in place with local hospital partners in Chicago; Cincinnati, Ohio; and San Antonio, Texas. The program has also been deployed successfully in Los Angeles. Working in close coordination with local churches, Buckle Up for Life meets people in their own community. The program’s experts work closely with local clergy to reach parents, caregivers and children with critical, interactive and culturally sensitive safety information and expanded access to car seats. Among the Orange County churches participating in the expansion of Buckle Up for Life are: African American Churches: Christ Our Redeemer African Methodist 46 Maxwell Street Irvine, Calif. 92618 Greater Light Missionary Baptist Church 1600 W. 3rd Street Santa Ana, Calif. 92703 Second Baptist Church 4300 Westminster Avenue Santa Ana, Calif. 92703 Hispanic Churches: West Coast Christian Tabernacle 309 N. Main Street Santa Ana, Calif. 92701 Our Lady of the Pillar 1622 W. 6th Street Santa Ana, Calif. 92703 “At Toyota, we are strongly committed to the belief that everyone deserves to be safe,” said Patricia Salas Pineda, group vice president of National Philanthropy and the Toyota USA Foundation at Toyota Motor North America. “Through our educational outreach, Collaborative Safety Research Center and numerous partnerships with leading hospitals, nonprofits and research universities nationwide, Toyota is engaged extensively in programs that help ensure that drivers and passengers are safe at every stage of life. Buckle Up for Life is a vital commitment for Toyota, and we are proud to be working with the visionary medical staff at Cincinnati Children’s, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and with local hospital partners across the country to expand its reach.” “The Buckle Up for Life program is a safety program that helps save lives and reduce the number of injuries and deaths of children while riding in cars.” says Jeffrey S. Upperman, MD, director, Trauma Program at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. “The Children's Hospital Los Angeles Injury Prevention Program is committed to safety and intervention throughout Southern California and beyond. By extending this program to Orange County, we can offer key safety intervention to a greater audience and keep more children safe. Toyota’s support for Buckle Up for Life is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to help make local communities safer and stronger. The company has contributed more than 600 million dollars to nonprofits throughout the United States over the past 20 years.

Participants are eligible to receive free car seats, and they are matched with certified child passenger safety technicians to help install these car seats and ensure that children are properly restrained.

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/Lymplex.html It is essential for those who provide lymphatic drainage treatments and therapy to understand the lymphatic system in detail. The lymphatic system is a complex and interconnected internal network composed of vessels and ducts that carry fluids throughout the body. These networks are responsible for waste management – moving and eliminating toxins and unhealthy substances from the body. They are also responsible for healing and delivering chemicals necessary to fight infection and viruses and repair damaged cells. While fluid can move freely through the lymphatic system, one shortcoming is that the lymphatic system is not able to pump or move substances on its own, but is more of a drainage system. The lymphatic system relies on the movement of surrounding muscles to move lymph (the substance containing mostly protein, interstitial fluid and white blood cells) through the body and to the cardiovascular system. Lymphatic drainage concerns assisting the lymphatic system in removing harmful substances by assisting in the manual pumping of lymphatic vessels and ducts. A lymphatic drainage massage or therapy session is designed to address the free-flowing lymphatic system and specific points on the body known as lymph nodes –collections of lymphatic vessels that filter and collect foreign and harmful particles traveling through the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage can reduce blockages in the lymphatic system that result in swelling and pain to promote a cleaner more efficient immune system and better overall health. While drainage is generally thought of as safe and preventative medicine, it can often espouse swollen lymph glands that can signify more serious problems and are often people’s first warning for a number of health concerns. When the system does not properly remove toxins it may affect the body’s white blood cell count. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.oldpueblovapor**** - Electronic cigarettes, made of plastic and metal, have no tobacco. A battery heats a solution that contains propylene glycol (approved by the FDA as a food additive) to create a vapor that users inhale. The solution, contained in a disposable cartridge, is available in dozens of flavors and with various levels of nicotine. They don't stain teeth or fingers, and there's no smoke. It's no wonder people are turning to e-cigs as a way to quit smoking. Enough evidence exists to support the effectiveness of e-cigarettes as a tool to quit smoking. In the spring of 2011 the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that electronic cigarettes may help smokers quit. What's a electronic cigarette vapor do? "You just hit it whenever you get the urge at certain times of the day," said Kelly Randles, 34, who turned to e-cigarettes last September. "It's totally different from a cigarette, because you don't have to finish the whole thing. You take a couple of puffs, put it down and do whatever you were doing." Electronic cigarettes became readily available in the United States around 2006. Today, about 2.5 million Americans use e-cigarettes, the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association reported. Most use e-cigarettes as a replacement for cigarettes, according to a survey published earlier this year by the University of Alberta, School of Public Health. Old Pueblo Vapor Lounge Owner Keith Reinhart, said he quit smoking for 18 months only to start back up. Now he uses e-cigarettes as an alternative to regular cigarettes.

Beta Blockers For Heart - Best Beta Blockers For Heart Disease? Beta blockers are drugs that are used to block the norepinephrine as well as the epinephrine or adrenaline from becoming clotted in beta receptors or the nerves. Such effects could be highly dangerous for a person, especially one who is ailing. Beta blockers have proved to be prevention of heart attacks as well as death due to heart attack. While some of them are used for the treatment of hyperthyroidism, and akathisia, others are used for treatment of anxiety, aqueous humor in the eyes and glaucoma. It has been shown that Hawthorne Berry will reduce calcification of your vascular system. As such, this heart extract will stop the arteries that lead to your heart from hardening or narrowing. You also won't develop any blot clots, which can lead to strokes and heart attacks. Hawthorne Berry is loaded with bioflavanoids, which are potent antioxidants. In fact, there are a lot of people who believe that they are actually a lot more potent than Vitamins A, C or E. It is these bioflavanoids that help your heart muscle be able to pump blood more efficiently. Whenever you have healthy arteries you will also have more endurance, good blood pressure and healthy blood vessels. This is the reason why this natural heart medicine is actually best used as a preventative medicine but it can also be used to treat heart disease too.
