    Default Firefighter Stress

    Check out the link below. Indiana University is conducting a study in cooperation with The Indianapolis Fire Department on the stress and health of Firefighters. Very interesting story and good information.

    Default Fight Of Environmental Stress

    Vegetarians, dieters, and athletes often lack sufficient amounts of this important nutrient in their diet and just about everyone can use the protection it may provide to fight environmental stresses. It works in both the fatty cell plasma membrane and the aqueous interior of the cell to protect the body against free radicals. It is, in fact, 100 times stronger than Vitamin E and Vitamin C combined, both of which are known for their excellent antioxidant qualities. ALA protects DNA, the mitochondria (the energy producing portion of the cell) and reduces cellular inflammation.

    Default Firefighter stress research

    Thanks for bringing up the subject.
    I have just been offered an opportunity to join a research team that is developing a website along those lines, based out of UCCS in Colorado.
    The team has developed an incredible system for helping us out with PTSD and CIS, or even the more chronic forms of job-related stress.

    I think the only reason why i am even involved at this point, is because I have been in the field as a fire-medic for about 13 years.
    What I would really like is any input from anyone else in the fire service.
    Do any of you have any concerns you would be willing to send my way regarding work-related stress?
    If you would prefer anonymity, you can email me as well.

    Thanks a bazillion,

    IU received a million dollar Assistance to Firefighters Grant. They should produce a lot for that amount of money.
