Hawaii, Let's avoid a major Hepatitis A Pandemic

Finally the culprit of the Hepatitis A outbreak was discovered  on the Hawaiian islands. It was tainted scallops from the Philippines primarily served at a short order franchised sushi restaurant named 'Genki sushi.' 
Number sickened in Hep A outbreak linked to scallops hits 206 (Hawaii News Now)
The irony of this is that Genki in Japanese means 'healthy.' The most popular expression in the Japanese language is "Genki Deska," which translates literally, (are you healthy) but is used to mean-- (how are you, howszit?)  Typical answer is (Genki Des.) (Yes, I am healthy!)

So far as of this writing there are approximately 300 confirmed cases of the Hepatitis A virus.
There are bound to be more since the incubation period is said to be long.

The state of Hawaii is in crisis since this virus can have a trickle down effect. One person  carrying the virus can infect many others, and those others can effect others... It can run out of control and be devastating

We are hoping the schools and state of Hawaii in association with Genki sushi restaurants have a mandatory vaccination for all keiki and adults. Please write your state senators immediately before we go into a major pandemic!

In the mean time vaccines are available without a prescription for $95.00 at Long drugs and other local pharmacies. If you want your Insurance to pay for the vaccination you must get a prescription form your PCP.

Hana Hou, Encore!

Hepatitis is a liver disease and can cause jaundice, aches in joints and muscles, fatigue, and loss of appetite. Some kinds of hepatitis will last only a short while, but others may take years of treatment or monitoring.

f getting dirty makes you happy, what else might it do? Well, it turns out dirt is good for you in more ways than one. Here are some reasons to get dirty:

Being “dirt happy” lowers your blood pressure and stress hormones.
Mycobacterium vaccae in soil can improve cognitive function, as well as symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease and even rheumatoid arthritis.
Bacteria on your skin can help manage inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, and can even heal wounds.
Gardening (and other dirty outdoor activities) engages your senses. Research shows that when multiple senses are stimulated, the brain is more likely to remember things and is better able to solve problems.
If you’re playing in the dirt, chances are you’re outside (unless you have a kiddie pool full of dirt in your living room.) This means you are getting sunshine, which is full-spectrum light. Full-spectrum light stimulates production of Vitamin D and serotonin. It also regulates the production of melatonin, helping you get a good night’s sleep.
Children who play outside become more adventurous and self-motivated and use their imagination more. They are also better able to understand and assess risk because playing in nature lets them explore in ways that they can ask questions, make observations and see outcomes. For example, “What if I put water on a pine cone?” “What changes if I put the pine cone in the hot sun?”
