Aerosols in the dental clinic. Part 2: Precautions for reducing infection -

Aerosols are generated secondary to different treatment procedures and situations in the dental clinic. Aerosols in the dental clinic may be infectious and transfer disease between clinic staff and patients. The authors present and discuss different measures to reduce infection caused by exposure to microbial aerosols. It is unrealistic to expect that close range aerosols […]

Er helserisikoen ved snus undervurdert? -

Hovedbudskap til helsepersonell

Bruk av svensk snus er forbundet med økt risiko for kreft, høyt blodtrykk, økt dødelighet etter kreft og hjerte- og karsykdommer, økt risiko for psykose, overvekt, metabolsk syndrom – og (ved høyt forbruk) økt risiko for diabetes type 2. Snusbrukere som slutter etter
hjerteinfarkt, halverer risikoen for å dø i tiden etter infarktet. Bruk av snus under svangerskapet er skadelig for barnet. Den høye bruken av snus er derfor bekymringsfull.
