Healthcare Reform Based on Comparison Between U.S., Germany, and England Health Care Systems

Description

The United States healthcare system does not perform as well as other countries including Germany and England, despite spending the most money on healthcare. It is well-established that there have been attempts at reform in the U.S. healthcare system multiple

The United States healthcare system does not perform as well as other countries including Germany and England, despite spending the most money on healthcare. It is well-established that there have been attempts at reform in the U.S. healthcare system multiple times in the past. This research paper describes the health care systems in the U.S., Germany, and England to analyze the strengths to create practical healthcare reform ideas for the U.S. This was done by describing each of the country's health care systems in detail, including the history of each country's health care system, the quality of care, the access to care, and the funding of the health care system. Based on this analysis of these health care systems, recommendations for health care reform are provided for the U.S. with revisions to the Affordable Care Act.

In the United States, cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death. The most prevalent risk factor for cardiovascular disease is poor nutrition and thus, proper nutrition is often used as a preventative measure. With the expensive and often ineffective medications and procedures currently being used to treat cardiovascular disease, we need to find a better solution. One promising solution is nutrition therapy, which is the implementation of proper nutrition guidelines into the treatment plan of patients with cardiovascular disease. After close research and analysis of four popular diets, a vegan (plant-based) diet, vegetarian diet, and Mediterranean diet could offer improvement of cardiovascular disease risk factors and chances of cardiovascular disease mortality. Different ways to start implementing nutrition therapy in medicine include emphasizing nutrition education in medical school and/or including registered dietitians in the treatment process for cardiovascular disease patients.

The Potential Utilization of Nutraceuticals as a Cancer Preventive Strategy

Cancer is an ever-relevant disease with many genetic, social, environmental, and behavioral risk factors. One factor which has been garnering interest is the impact of nutrition on cancer. As a disease process, cancer is primarily driven by an accumulation of genetic aberrations. Recent epidemiological, pre-clinical, and clinical studies have demonstrated various impacts of bioactive food molecules on the promotion or prevention of these oncogenic mutations. This work explores several of these molecules and their relation to cancer prevention and provides a sample meal plan, which highlights many additional molecules that are currently being studied.

Factors That Affect Nutrition in Children With Developmental Disabilities: A Holistic Approach

Description

It is estimated that about one in six children aged 3 to 7 have one or more developmental disabilities (DD) in the United States. These conditions can include ADHD, cerebral palsy, Autism spectrum disorder, vision impairment, hearing loss, learning/intellectual disabilities,

It is estimated that about one in six children aged 3 to 7 have one or more developmental disabilities (DD) in the United States. These conditions can include ADHD, cerebral palsy, Autism spectrum disorder, vision impairment, hearing loss, learning/intellectual disabilities, and other developmental delays. Many children with developmental disabilities are also at a higher risk of being undernourished or lacking nutrition. Inadequate nutrient intake, feeding problems/disorders, and motor dysfunctions associated with DD are often related to poor nutritional status. However, there are many other social factors, that are often overlooked, which can contribute to the overall poor nutritional status of children with developmental disabilities. This thesis aimed to take a holistic look at the physical, environmental, and social determinants of health that affect the nutritional status and mealtime success of children with developmental disabilities using an intersectional approach. The research also includes a synthesis of interviews collected from parents of children with DD, social workers, occupational therapists, and speech and language therapists in order to survey what challenges children with developmental disabilities face during mealtime, nutritional challenges from parents/professionals, and assessment of nutritional programs available in the community.
