Be lung cancer aware this November

first_imgLung cancer is one of the most common cancers among both men and women in Northern Ireland, with around 900 new cases diagnosed each year, but it is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer, so during Lung Cancer Awareness Month the Public Health Agency (PHA) is calling on smokers to take the decision to give up their habit and start to enjoy the benefits of a smoke-free lifestyle.Colette Rogers, Strategic Lead for Tobacco Control with the PHA, said: “Smoking cigarettes is the biggest risk factor for lung cancer and is responsible for around 90 percent of all cases. Using other types of tobacco products such as cigars, pipe tobacco and chewing tobacco can also increase your risk of developing cancer.”“However, you can reduce your risk by quitting now, no matter how long you have been smoking. Every year that you do not smoke, your risk of getting serious illnesses such as lung cancer will decrease. “Smokers should be aware of the symptoms of lung cancer and if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you need to see your GP urgently. Early diagnosis of lung cancer is important because early treatment can be more effective and survival can be improved.” Symptoms may include:> a persistent cough> a sudden change in a cough that you have had for a long time> unexplained weight loss> breathlessness> chest pain – this is usually intermittent (stop-start) and is often made worse when breathing or coughing coughing up blood-stained phlegm.  “Quitting is the single most important thing you can do for your health and if you stop for 28 days or more, you are five time times more likely to stop for good. However, it is not easy and different approaches will work for different people.”“While some people might be able to do it with very little support, others find that planning ahead and making use of the free Stop Smoking Support Services that are available can really help them make the decision permanent.“If you quit and then relapse, accept it, work out why it happened, and focus on how you can avoid it in the future. It takes several efforts for many people to quit for good, but if you are determined, you will do it.” Colette concluded.For more see quit.ie and cancer.ie,Be lung cancer aware this November was last modified: November 3rd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cancerhealthlung cancerphapipesquit.ieSMOKINGtobaccolast_img read more

(@niels_27). #CFC #Chelsea pic.twitter.com/sQLbHjc51M— Kristof Terreur 📰 (@HLNinEngeland) June 4, 2017//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Eden Hazard has admitted he would consider an approach from Real Madrid and that he is yet to begin contract negotiations with Chelsea.The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a move to the European champions despite having three years to run on his £200,000-a-week contract at Stamford Bridge.Chelsea will return to Champions League action next season after reclaiming their Premier League crown in emphatic fashion under Antonio Conte in his debut campaign.And although Hazard plans to continue in west London, the 26-year-old admitted his admiration for the Spanish giants.“Of course I would consider it if Madrid made an offer,” Hazard said. “I am keen to win trophies. It would be great to win the Champions League. But Chelsea’s goal is to win the Champions League as well. Honestly I do not know what will happen.“I only know that I still have a contract with Chelsea for three seasons and that we just had an amazing 2016-17 campaign. We want to continue on this path and want to build on this in the Champions League.“I am feeling very well at Chelsea. But you never know what will happen. I have not met with the board yet to discuss a new deal. I have two games with Belgium coming up first and I am off on my holiday after that. I want to think about football as little as possible.” The 26-year-old Belgian is keen to win Europe’s biggest prize Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane has previously declared his interest in signing the former Lille playmaker, and could make a move in the market, should the club’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe end in failure. 1last_img read more

BUST-UP OVER COUNCILLOR’S COMMENTS ON CONTROVERSIAL SEWAGE PLANT

first_imgEnda Craig: Says Micky Doherty being “opportunistic”A FINE Gael councillor has been heavily criticised over comments he has made about a controversial sewage plant.Micky Doherty has been criticised by the Campaign For a Clean Estuary group based in Inishowen.The group opposes treated sewage being pumped into Lough Foyle under a controversial Donegal County Council proposal now being overseen by Irish Water. CFCE spokesman Enda Craig told us: “Having displayed minimal interest In the Community For a Clean Estuary sewage campaign over the years, Fine Gael Clr Micky Doherty now appears as a cheerleader for Irsh Water and has the audacity to declare to the residents of Moville and Greencastle that ‘you will now get nothing less than what you absolutely deserve’ by way of the long awaited sewage plant.“This declaration has all all the hallmarks of an opportunistic exercise in a pathetic attempt to gather in additional votes by putting into the public domain selective information.“If Clr Doherty had bothered to ask, the CFCE could have told him that the Moville/ Greeencastle WWTP is listed only on an extensive ‘proposed’ list of developments as mentioned by Irish Water in their latest publication.“It is crystal clear Clr Doherty is not aware that in relation to this proposed Plant that Irish Water has not yet undertaken the lengthy Compulsive Purchase Order process or that Irish Water has not yet applied for a Discharge Licence to the Environmental Protection Agency.” Mr Craig said Irish Water has not yet addressed ownership of the seabed of Lough Foyle (as claimed by the Crown Estate in London).“Irish Water must also await the outcome of our appeal to Brusells where our complaint against the findings of An Bord Pleanala and The High Court is being assessed by the European Commission and The Aarhaus Convention,” said Mr Craig.“Irish Water has not yet addressed the abandoning of the Donegal Council motion in 1990 to locate the Plant and Pipe north of Greencastle which had been agreed unanimously. This followed the outrageous declaration by the EPD/DOE of Lough Foyle being classified as Atlantic Ocean.“Making such statements on the eve of an election is totally unacceptable. It is cynical, oppurtunistic and reflects badly on the democratic process,” added Mr Craig.  BUST-UP OVER COUNCILLOR’S COMMENTS ON CONTROVERSIAL SEWAGE PLANT was last modified: May 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Campaign for a Clean EstuaryCllr Mickey DohertydumpGreencastlemovillesewagelast_img read more
