Managing disclosure of gender dysphoria

A visual summary of managing patients disclosing gender dysphoria, encouraging cooperation and respect to get the best experiences and outcomes for patients

It can be very distressing for a person to tell a health professional about conflict between their sense of self and the sexual characteristics they were born with. They will need reassurance, and careful guidance about what kinds of treatment are available.

More Information

About 0.6% of the population identifies as transgender according to healthcare records, although the actual number might be higher. In the 50 years since UK NHS services started, more than 130 000 people have changed social gender role. A variety of doctors, including non-specialists, might at some time in their career be approached for help by someone with gender dysphoria.

Toxic Cocktail

How chemical pollution is poisoning our brains

In her latest book, Professor Barbara Demeneix explains how exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals is resulting in reduced IQ levels in children and higher rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The author also explains the approaches needed to reduce exposure to today’s toxic cocktails.

The EDCs that interfere with the thyroid hormone are resulting in falling child IQ and contributing to rocketing rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Barbara Demeneix

  • Presents evidence, derived from a wide spectrum of scientific and epidemiological studies, that many of these chemicals are interfering with one of our bodies’ most essential regulators of brain development: thyroid hormone.
  • Offers number of recommendations for individuals to apply in their day-to-day life and suggest actions that should be taken at the regulatory level.
  • Goes through the main catalogue of chemicals that can interfere with thyroid hormone production and action.
  • Tells the personal story of how the author became aware of these problems.
  • Simply presented ways to decrease your individual chemical load to protect yourself and unborn children.

La santé : du public à l’intime

Le 1er chapitre est dédié au Distilbène

Dans la période contemporaine, plus que jamais, les expériences de la santé, de la maladie, de la vieillesse et du handicap se constituent à l’intersection des sphères privée et publique. D’un côté la santé publique “dé-privatise” les actes et les préoccupations de santé, de l’autre, les pratiques individuelles façonnent certains dispositifs institutionnels et/ou législatifs et en même temps se “dé-singularisent“. Les individus doivent à la fois se réapproprier le message institutionnel et être en capacité de donner à une expérience intime un caractère public.

Le 1er chapitre – Des malades rendus visibles par le droit ? L’expérience judiciaire individuelle et collective des victimes du Distilbène – est dédié au Distilbène.

Si la sociologie de la santé s’est amplement développée depuis les années 1970, l’interface public-privé et la porosité de ses frontières a été peu interrogée. Les analyses de cet ouvrage apportent un nouveau regard sur ce qui circule entre les sphères privée et publique afin de rendre intelligibles les mécanismes sociaux qui sous-tendent cette interface.

– Comment s’opère le mouvement de dé-privatisation de la santé, selon quels ressorts, enjeux, limites ?
– Comment le privé s’immisce-t-il, façonne-t-il, imprègne-t-il la sphère publique de la santé ?
En partant des situations empiriques les plus représentatives, cet ouvrage invite sociologues, étudiants, professionnels de santé, usagers et citoyens à porter leur attention sur l’articulation public/privé dans le champ de la santé.

Every child deserves the opportunity to thrive, in safe and healthy settings

Inheriting a sustainable world: Atlas on children’s health and the environment

Overview

WHO ‘s publication outlines the impact of the environment on children’s health and recommends solutions for preventing diseases and deaths in the future.

More than a decade after WHO published Inheriting the world: The atlas of children’s health and the environment in 2004, this new publication presents the continuing and emerging challenges to children’s environmental health.

This 2015 edition – download here – is not simply an update but a more detailed review; we take into account changes in the major environmental hazards to children’s health over the last 13 years, due to increasing urbanization, industrialization, globalization and climate change, as well as efforts in the health sector to reduce children’s environmental exposures. Inheriting a sustainable world? Atlas on children’s health and the environment aligns with the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, launched in 2015, in stressing that every child deserves the opportunity to thrive, in safe and healthy settings.

This book seeks to promote the importance of creating sustainable environments and reducing the exposure of children to modifiable environmental hazards. The wide scope of the SDGs offers a framework within which to work and improve the lives of all children. To this end, we encourage further data collection and tracking of progress on the SDGs, to show the current range of global environmental hazards to children’s health and identify necessary action to ensure that no one is left behind.
