Medical Information

This color is called orange vanilla creme , it is recognized by the emergency rescue staff as a color signifying medical information alert. When displayed on the refrigerator door, or on empty medicine bottles or identification tags on purses and luggage, and also on the window closest to your front door at home, the emergency medical people know to take notice.

Medicine bottles without the medicine,  that are approximately 2 inches across the top and 2-3 inches tall carrying an orange vanilla creme  label are designated medical information carriers, and are sought out by ambulance drivers, fire rescue squads, and other emergency medical technicians.

In case of emergency, this will save your life and precious time, the more information you can have readily available, the better everyone will be equipped to handle emergency situations. In an emergency situation, you will not remember any of this information so this just gives way to a smooth experience.

Keep the information up to date and keep in the door of your refrigerator at home, in your purse or suitcase when you travel. Also make sure you have purse tags and luggage tags stating that there is emergency medical information inside. Purse and luggage tags should state “EMERGENCY MEDICAL”  only, no other information should be visible.

When going on a trip make sure you have an extra one for the refrigerator at home and leave a trusted person with the key. If anything happens while traveling, this information might be obtained by the trusted person, and could also save your life if the bottle you are carrying becomes lost or damaged.

Food Allergy: A Global Problem

Food allergy - a rising global health problem -Globally, an estimated 220-250 million people  have  food allergies, with numbers rising in both developed and developing countries, especially in children.
Food Allergy Research &
 Education (FARE) is proud to support the WAO's World Allergy Organization efforts on the need for greater awareness and understanding of food allergies.

How Much Do You Weigh 

No, I do not want to know, but the airlines do. NBC news reported recently that airlines are contemplating weighing the passenger and the luggage and charging from 93 cents to $1.06 per Kilogram over a posted weight limit to ride the plane.

Some airlines have already started charging for two seats if you are too big to fit in the small seat they have available for you to travel in.

In a world where everything is fast and furious, this just adds to the frustrations of getting from point A to point B. Can you prove you have a medical problem? Would it matter?

 How much is a kilogram in pounds? 


1 kilogram is approximately 2.2 lbs.. Just multiply the amount of Kilograms (Kgs) by 2.2 to arrive at the equivalent weight in pounds (lbs).



What to do when you have an accident  ,

the Automobile Association advises that you:

* Don't lose your temper even if provoked.

* Don't admit liability at the scene; you may be confused, and it may adversely affect the claims process

* Call the emergency services – you must if anyone is injured

* Call your insurance company who should give you guidance

* Make a note of where you are, road conditions, what happened

* Note other vehicles involved – registration numbers, makes, models

* Note who was involved – names, telephone numbers, addresses, insurance details

* Make a note of any witnesses who might confirm what happened

* The Highway Code says you must give your details to anyone with reasonable grounds for requiring them. If you don't you must report details to police within 24 hours

* Take pictures if possible; mobile phones are fine

* If you suspect someone was breaking the law – speeding, using a hand-held phone and so on, tell your insurer and the police

* If you have been injured, deal with your insurer rather than any cold-call lawyers who might contact you
