Work takes health?
The Russians too much time to devote to work, do not know how to preserve their health, and for fifty years, completely lose their thirst for life. According to the President of the Russian Association of doctors, which deals with occupational diseases, there is a burnout life, and it is also possible to identify the most harmful profession. He tried to tell us more about the existing problems.
On unhealthy of the inhabitants of Russia
Unfortunately, Russia has nothing to boast of, its population is very unhealthy. People can be called trapped and sick. Even in the Nordic countries, and in the East, the residents are a healthy lot. Among Russians, many suffer occupational diseases. For example, people who had some connection to Chernobyl, 12-15 diseases caused, primarily, by operation or radiation.
Of course, the victims of Chernobyl is a special category. But by examining the health of their peers, men 50-55 years of age who have been spared this risk factor, we learned that on average, they also have 5-6 diseases. For comparison, the inhabitants of Sweden and Finland in the same age category have only a few chronic diseases. This difference is shocking.
The absence of desire to live
During years of practice the doctor every day watching the terrible trend, Russians, especially men who are close to retirement, does not have the motivation for future life. They say at the reception: «Doctor, you’re really not try! I do not interesting to live!» Similar words can be heard from many patients. The fact that the Russians in such large numbers don’t want to live to be called a national tragedy.
So, we by nature can be called pessimists. We are not the only one who sees the world in rainbow colors, for example, doctors from Finland tell the same about their patients. In Scandinavian countries a large percentage of suicides. But how can you want to live if you are not able to afford anything extra, and is forced to survive?
About the most harmful work
The first place belongs to drivers: tractor drivers, taxi drivers, freight forwarders, crane operators. In the second group is located seamstresses, have all the working time at the bench in the same position. A high percentage of patients among health care workers, especially often go to the doctor, nurses, prone to allergies, as well as suffering from diseases of the spine. Also often surgeons who work in the same position for several hours.
No less harmful to the work of chefs, which in Russia very much. Their work is often underestimated, because this terrible conditions: heat, terrible climate, often the lack of ventilation, the whole shift on his feet. The effect of such work is always become varicose veins and back problems. Ask for help and the sellers also spend the whole day on my feet and lifting heavy.
Who are prone to burnout syndrome?
To talk about the statistics is extremely difficult, because burnout is not included in the list of occupational diseases in Europe. But for Russia syndrome exposed to teachers, customs officers, surgeons and judges.
Anesthesiologists intensive care, happen to be working day and night without breaks, not enough pay. Then they short time at home sleeping again to start the working shift. It is impossible to survive on the rate of nurses, so they have to work in two shifts. These people will soon become frequent visitors to the clinics.
About how it was in USSR and how now
During Soviet times, for harmful work relied compensation. Today the emphasis is on precaution and prevention of the disease. But most often it doesn’t work because not enough money. This branch of medicine rests on the enthusiasm of some people.
