Drugs That Won’t Work (Dangerous Drugs-When Will It Stop?)Written by Carla Ballatan
Nowadays, it is indeed another risk we take whenever we obtain over-the-counter drugs and relievers. Most medicines are so much more unreliable rather than trustworthy enough to relieve us of what’s ailing us. Sometimes diseases that we least expected to have began showing symptoms and if you would investigate further…you will find out that diagnosis shows that certain symptoms were caused by drugs we are taking timely for another illness.
Shocking, huh? You would not be so shocked when you see it all to be true especially on nationwide newspapers and news.
Like headline of an article in New York Times which hollers: “Risks found with another pain killer”. Is this true? A pain killer, noted to ‘ease’ your pain if you take this pill is a dangerous pill after all and instead of relieving your pain would rather give you heart attacks, stroke and death in unsuspecting users?
But, alas it is shockingly true that there are drugs made that don’t actually work – but work against your body. An example of this is Celebrex T. This drug was named as one of top five dangerous drugs, by David Graham an employee of Federal Drug Administration’s (FDA) office of drug safety.
According to a five-year study by National Cancer Institute, which explored whether Celebrex T prevented colon polyps and colorectal cancer, has found that people taking drug had at least a 2.5 times higher risk of cardiac arrests even at a lower dose. During study, those taking a higher dose had as much a 3.4 times higher risk of heart attacks and stroke.

Does your work wear you down? Does your computer set exhaust you rather than help you reduce your work load? If your answer to these questions is yes, then, you must understand word “ergonomics”.
Ergonomics is study of work. It aims to develop equipments, tools or devices to fit work. It also covers study of how to reduce risk injuries caused by tools and equipments, such as chair, table or computer. Ergonomics includes arrangement and adjustment of things, as well as exercising of correct posture. However, ergonomics have disadvantages.
The study of ergonomics is wide and scope includes different equipments and tools. On this page, we will only discuss problems regarding some postures and ergonomically designed computer parts.
There are devices designed to support computer parts. Examples of these are keypad tray and mouse support tray. The purposes of these devices are to hold mouse and keypad, to allow correct posture and better viewing arrangement, and to enable our hands to freely reach for mouse and keypad. But there are also disadvantages. These devices can cause a bent wrist and may reduce knee clearance. We can lessen problem by adjusting height and angle of keypad and mouse in such a way that your hands will be comfortable and can freely move. If you have problems with space, look for a keypad tray that will hold both keypad and mouse. Make sure that tray is stable.
