Health Tip

Drinking alcohol, especially heavy drinking over a long period of time, can affect the health of the drinker in many ways. Every system in the body can be negatively affected by alcohol
 
Drinking and Your Health

Alcohol Weakens the Body's Defenses

Chronic drinkers may appear to be healthy, but if they do become ill or injured, they may find it more difficult to heal. Long-term alcohol consumption can harm the body's ability to respond to stressors like illness or injury. Too much alcohol can cause you to get sick by weakening your body's defenses.

 

Alcohol and Trauma

Alcohol intoxication is associated with 40 to 50 percent of traffic fatalities; 25 to 35 percent of nonfatal motor vehicle injuries; up to 64 percent of fires and burns; 48 percent of hypothermia and frostbite cases; and about 20 percent of completed suicides.

 

 

Heavy Drinking Dangers

Research studies have emphasized the serious health effects of long-term heavy drinking, from an increased risk for having accidents to developing liver cancer.

Alcohol and Other Conditions

Alcohol and Blood Pressure

Even modest amounts of alcohol consumption can cause blood pressure to increase, especially in older adults, according to two recent studies. Even very low alcohol consumption can be a health risk for many -- almost one in every four Americans.

Alcohol and Stress

The stress response is a complex process; the association between drinking and stress is more complicated still. Because both drinking behavior and an individual's response to stress are determined by multiple genetic and environmental factors, studying the link between alcohol consumption and stress may further our understanding of drinking behavior.

Diabetes and Alcohol

Having diabetes does not neccesarily mean you have to avoid alcohol, but two can be a fatal combination. Find out what you need to know about drinking and diabetes.

Guegeegue is not a big community, consider to be the most peaceful and controled community wihtin the vicinity of Kwajalein Atoll.  Although these community is very small they have been living without police protection because of the low crime and are very rarely seen on this community, they are still under the laws of the RMI and the KALGov't.  
 
The commuity do elected their very own officer's that serve this small community, one of the landowner ( Alap Kiaki Jatios) is also part taking in the council of this community. Every year the community get together and elected their officers. These officer are there to organize the community in many activities and other functions that is required of them from the Kwajalein leadership or from the Iroj and Alap. 
 
Guegeegue is connected to Ebeye by a causeway that was build in the late 80's and is still not been 100 % complete, however these people that lives here are still managing to get to Ebeye and back. The two high school that are on Guegeegue are also traveling thru the unfinished causeway.  The roads sometimes get worst when the sea surf is high and especially when the wind from the northeast are very strong during hightest tides.  With all the debris and rocks that washes onto the causeway people who lived here still go to work despite the road conditiion.
 
Guegeegue is pretty much a get away for many people from Ebeye, here you'll find a place suitable to spend the weekend under a tree and enjoy the wind, or just bring all the family member for a weekend picnic.   Most of the picnic areas here are equip with bar-b-q grill and has a lot of space for the whole family to play such sports as volleyball and other sports.
