Covid-19 ou l’indigence de la santé publique démasquée, Laurence Monnais, AOC, 18/03/2020

Covid-19 ou l’indigence de la santé publique démasquée  Laurence Monnais AOC, 18 mars 2020 https://aoc.media/analyse/2020/03/17/covid-19-ou-lindigence-de-la-sante-publique-demasquee/   La pandémie interroge les différents systèmes de santé publique et oblige les homo hygienicus 2.0 à l’autodiscipline improvisée. Mais le confinement est aussi porteur d’inégalités, de vulnérabilités et de marginalisation. Tantôt pointé comme insuffisant, tantôt décrété comme essentiel, le masque médical, donne à voir les limites et paradoxes de la santé publique contemporaine. En couverture de The Economist le 1er février dernier et du New Yorker le 9 mars, emmaillotant une mappemonde aux couleurs du drapeau chinois ou porté sur les yeux par un président Trump en déni, le masque [...]

Bibliographie Cannabis et Troubles cardio-vasculaires

Bibliographie Cannabis et Troubles cardio-vasculaires   Dr Christian SUEUR, GRECC, 2e édition, janvier 2020.   Actuellement, les méta-analyses ne montrent pas d'augmentation significative des pathologies cardiovasculaire chez les consommateurs de cannabis. (cf en particulier la méta-analyse de Divya RAVI et coll., Annals of Internal Medicine, 2018). Quoiqu'il en soit, l'existence de facteurs de risques liés à la consommation de cannabis fumé est semble-t-il incontestable; de même, les risques sont vraisemblablement augmentés chez les sujets prédisposés, présentant des pathologies cariaques, vasculaires, des troubles de l'excitabilité cardiaque ou de la tension artérielle. La plupart des "Case Report" consistent en des accidents par sténose vasculaire, cérébrale ou cardiaque, [...]

As CBD Oil Flirts with Mainstream, Questions Mount, Kathleen Doheny, Medscape, 2018

As CBD Oil Flirts with Mainstream, Questions Mount Kathleen Doheny Medscape, June 11, 2018 Anxiety is a given for Jessica Singer, 25, who juggles her job at a marijuana dispensary with her night-time gigs as a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles. So when it’s time for bed, "I can't turn off my brain,'' she says. Now she does, with the help of a new bedtime ritual -- a ''snack" of two gummy bears containing CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a substance from marijuana that lacks the ''high'' of the THC (tetrahydro-cannabinol) also found in marijuana. The remedy is affordable for her -- about $35 [...]
