A HOPE OF PEACE FOR COLOMBIA A HOPE OF PEACE FOR THE KIDNAPPED BY THE FARC

In the last few days the FARC(Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) freed two policemen abducted, the most emblematic case is that of Pablo Emilio Moncayo, one of the hostages was longer, 12 years held by the FARC, was kidnapped aged 19 today is 31 years old passage of an almost-adolescent youth, found in 2010 as an adult, with part of his life lost, who would be in limbo for 12 years.

Now he is being charged as an accomplice, a traitor to his country, a “guerrillero”, because he dont show any feeling when he is going down the plane to return to his family, especially his father, Professor Moncayo, who for years had his hands on a string, representing suffering and the captivity of his son, who established walking across Colombia, all over the world asking for the release of his son and thousands of more hostages.

Some speaks of the “Stockholm syndrome”, which refers to a certain relation of complicity that develops between the victim and the victimizer.

But how a person must react after 12 years of captivity to return to freedom, to see a family that if they have blood ties but now are almost strangers, when he sees himself not as the young of 19 years but as a man of 31, as in the case of Pablo Emilio Moncayo, who owns nothing but himself, who has lived away from it all, that do not know about technology, do not know what happened in the world who do not know enough already to his own Family, which part of his life lived almost equal to the lost and never to recover.

As each of us react to that if we see people who love us, they are of our blood, but who have not seen in 12 years, those who have been away and not by our choice, but to others as reactionary freedom when we do not know who is or are afraid to live it.

Could I go out without distrust that goes next to me that want to do harm, who would think to look into the eyes of all, when I have not been able to watch into mine because i cant recognized myself.

If we look for the definition of justice we can find many:
* Action to consider claims by someone, agreeing what is fair.

* Attribute of God, which rewards or punishes each person according to their deserts.
With this we may also infer that it would be the attribute that the judiciary, and state power that has been created to regulate certain rules of conduct that have evolved over time in order to achieve a peaceful and harmonious coexistence, shares rewards or punishes people according to behave or act.

* Revolutionary concept of justice is based on justice conceived as the human ability, based on ethical principles, moral and juridical pursues as its supreme goal to achieve the respect and proper exercise of individual or collective rights, for which purpose it must implement specific actions as coercion and / or sanction of human actions in the correct proportion, ie equating the value of the legally protected with the damage caused by the conduct or lack of it.

And if you still looking for will be many more depending on the time, societies, culture and also the thinking of each of the people inhabiting this planet.

What happens when the justice dispensed by the wrong man, is based on circumstantial facts, comments from other people, suspected of other people, not concepts, and scientific definition?

NEW RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT BREAST CANCER

In a meeting of medical experts appointed by the U.S. government (the group is call prevenitive exams force ), without cancer doctors present, provides a new way of dealing with breast cancer, a new form in time which should make mammograms and self-examination breasts.

* It states that it was undesirable that physicians teach patients to become self breast exam, because according to this group of physicians, no good, not too useful.
They say breast self-examination leading to breast cancer are false.

* The other resolution is that mammograms, they should be after 50 years and every two years (at the present time is from 40 years and yearly) in many countries because of this the mammograms from age 40 years are free or are covered by medical insurance as the pap smear.

The question now is because this change is due to high medical costs and insurance plans, including the free mammogram after age 40, is due to the health of these new patients or medical advice is to save money no matter patient health.

And if a false positivity in breast self-examination, that matter is nothing more important to prevent breast cancer, to diagnose when the patient has no solution or a way to avoid death.

Breast cancer is one of the cancers, which discovered in time, is more likely to be cured or at least prevent it from spreading.

With these new medical advice, the only thing that can be saved is money, especially for insurers, but for the patient, passing, do not mind the subsequent mutilation of the women that I have been warned, do not mind the death of these women to save women.

About 39 million women undergo mammography every year in the U.S., which means a cost of more than 5,000 million for the health system in this country.

It sought to save that, it would save money without MATTER IF WOMEN HAVE CANCER OR BE PREVENTED.

The most ridiculous of all, that this meeting was not represented medica Cancer Society, who recommend:
* Annual mammogram after age 40
* And self-examination in the shower after a period of at least once a month.

It is a shame, that in pursuit of saving money on mammograms, biopsies and other clinical examinations, these recommendations are published regardless of people’s lives, that world is this, that physician may consider more money for the patient, they forget the Hippocratic oath.

“… In any house that between, go for the benefit of the sick, refraining from any voluntary error and corruption …”

What is the meaning of the medical profession when a group of physicians, not preach prevention of disease.
