Movember, the eleventh month of the year (formerly known as November), come together each year to create the world's largest movement for men's health - bringing much needed awareness and funding to men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancers.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to start Movember 1st (November 1st) clean shaven, then grow and groom their moustache for 30 days to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for prostate and testicular cancers.

LAST November, 125,000 men across Australia grew a moustache.

As a result, more than $8 million was raised for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and beyondblue, the national depression initiative.

And the organisers of Movember, the fundraising initiative which boasts it is “changing the face of men’s health one mo at a time”, said now is the time for “Mo Bros” willing to give up shaving their top lip for the month of November, and their supporters, to register at http://www.movember.com.

“Movember is all about doing something with your mates for a good cause, while having fun,” co-founder and original Mo Bro Luke Slattery said.

“We are looking forward to another year of moustaches and raising some much-needed awareness and funds for men’s health.

“Every Mo Bro and Sista out there makes a difference, and gets us one mo closer to our goal of improving the state of men’s health,” Mr Slattery said

He said that despite achievements made to date, there is still significant work to be done in terms of raising awareness and funds for men’s health.

Mr Slattery said since its inception six years ago, Movember had been lucky enough to be supported by ambassadors from different fields.

“This year, leading the call to arms is Australia’s biggest band, Powderfinger, who have come on board as exclusive music ambassadors and will be growing a Mo during Movember,” Mr Slattery said.

Lead singer Bernard Fanning said: “I hope we can motivate people to join the discussion - to be part of the idea that it is OK to talk about men’s health issues in particular and to encourage that sense of fun about a serious issue.”

I heard of some problems relating to insurance in Oz which meant many/most docs there were not going to inject that stuff dubbed 'vaccine' for the alleged H1N1 virus.

What was all that about?

Did 'THEY' find some other way around this hinderance to their plans to get that toxic load into Ozzies? (ie - by creating some Mickey Mouse law and getting unqualified plebs to do the job)?

* And with the 'Flu' season now a fading historical event for this year in Oz which provided bugger all reason for panicking about the alleged H1N1 virus, what is the driving force to encourage the ignorant masses to roll up their sleeves? ie - how're your sleaze-bags in government trying to off-load that poisobnous 'vaccine' for their mates in drug and pharmaceutical companies?

* I had a moustache once.

A study found many Australians aren't worried about swine flu but most are still willing to accept the free vaccine.

A study probing the latest opinions on the pandemic flu has found a clear majority (78 per cent) felt it was "always a mild disease or only occasionally severe".

But when asked what they would do when offered a vaccine, just 17 per cent of Australians said they would reject the jab.

"The main reasons given for outright refusal were a perception that the vaccine was unnecessary, concerns about vaccine safety, or the respondents did not believe in vaccination," according to a paper published online by the Medical Journal of Australia (MJA).

Other reasons included "not liking needles", already having a seasonal flu jab or the belief that "flu vaccine causes flu".

The study took in the views of 830 people, and 67 per cent said they were willing to be vaccinated while 13 per cent said they would "wait to see" for any complications before being vaccinated.

"Two thirds of respondents to this national study of adult Australians indicated a willingness to receive pandemic (H1N1) 2009 vaccination," the authors write.

"... despite 78 per cent of respondents regarding the current influenza pandemic as only causing mild disease."

The federal government has secured 21 million doses of the vaccine made by Melbourne-based CSL Ltd, and people should contact their GP to discuss how best to get their free jab.

Study participants were also asked whether they supported plans to donate offshore the millions of vaccine doses not taken up by Australians.

"Australians expressed a spirit of generosity in this study with 96 per cent ... supporting donation of surplus vaccine to neighbouring developing countries," the authors write.

The research was undertaken by a team of experts from the Newcastle-based Hunter New England Population Health and the University of Newcastle.

You have done - on many occasions.

You seem to be able to get away with it. Or you have got away with it so far. I wonder what would happen if you did the same now?

And here:-

This is an article about Australian doctors who may be unable to get insurance to cover them against claims if the substances they administer cause harm.

* and it's printed in a pleasant blue colour.

I have no desire to call anyone an idiot.

I hope your son really means what he says when he wrote that he wanted the personal abuse to stop.

I used to really like this board ten years ago or so when he made sure the board was uncontaminated by insults.

If people like me who are prepared to speak are free of the usual personal abuse by those who don't want the boat rocked, then useful and constructive debate has a chance of occuring.
