Looking for Generic Tadalafil for Sale? Find them Easily Online

If you are a man suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED), it means that you cannot actively produce a penile erection at will.  In fact, even if you are sexually aroused or stimulated, you still will not be able to produce an erection if you have this condition without the assistance of ED medications like generic tadalafil.  Generic tadalafil is actually the generic version of the popular ED drug, Cialis.  However, due to the cost of branded ED medications, most men with ED prefer to simply use generic ED medications as they basically have the same overall effect as their branded counterpart.  The problems you usually find when buying generic meds like tadalafil is where to buy generic tadalafil for sale.

Is the Toronto city workers' strike hurting public health?

The growing piles of garbage strewn across Toronto aren't the only detrimental effect of the city's public servants' ongoing strike, according to two recent, unsettling stories in the Toronto Star.

Last week, the Star's Theresa Boyle recounted one infection-control expert's concerns that the prolonged absence of striking Toronto Public Health Unit are hurting the city's capacity to prepare to fight the expected resurgence of the H1N1 flu pandemic this fall.

"The bottom line is more people will die" if the striking workers remain on the picket lines, warned Dr Allison McGeer, a microbiologist and the head of Mount Sinai Hospital's infection control divison.

Although pandemic planning is an essential service and therefore protected from the strike ("Planning for a pandemic in the context of the current H1N1 outbreak is something we identified as a critical service to be maintained during the strike, so non-union staff have been continuing with our planning efforts," explained the city's chief medical officer of health Dr David McKeown) Ms Boyle heard from unnamed sources in the public health department that some officials share Dr McGeer's concerns.

And then, this Thursday, another story: sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies may rise as a result of the strike, wrote reporter Megan Ogilvie. "Sexual health clinics reduce the amount of disease in the community and we are less able to do that now" due to the strike's impact on the city's public health force, said U of T assistant professor of nursing LaRon E Nelson.

    Public Health: A Pandora's box

    The benign nature of health "believed" belies the malignant nature of health "practiced" ( at this time).

    What do i mean by that?

    Pandora [ the Greek equivalent of Eve (who birthed all of mankind) ] was naieve in her purpose.
    She opened the box unleashing the evils...and left "hope" to remain inside.

    The nature of health " practiced" appears to be unleashing many evils while proclaiming the message of rescue:

    e.g. the unnamed vocal news-hungry ex-medical officer of health who was VP of a biopharmaceutical company( focussed on developing antiinflammatory drugs) eventually swallowed up by Hoescht Marion Rossel whose Aventis Pasteur arm has joined with Fibrogen to NOTE: produce the H1N1 vaccine ( with a gel stabiliser that causes inflammatory disease conditions)
    Hmmmmmmmm.....................
    anything wrong with this picture?

    One might ask..."garbage inside..or "garbage outside"? Which is the real health issue?

    AH...BUT...

    "hope" was left in Pandora's box ( urn) ......

    why don't we open that box up again and let that "hope" spread around a little?

    Can we all just "actually" consider being our brother's keeper as more than the reflection in the mirror?

    ( yes I mean both the "outside" garbage collection service and the "inside" health clinician service ) :)
