Respond a substantive comment in 100, words about how LACTOBACILLUS GASSERI orga

Respond a substantive comment in 100, words about how LACTOBACILLUS GASSERI organism is detrimental/harmful to another area of microbiology, after you have read their main post below….
APA 7th format
Lactobacillus gasseri
COLLAPSE
Lactobacillus gasseri is regarded as a very beneficial bacteria. It is most found in the digestive and urinary tract, vagial flora, and certain foods. It is commonly used as a supplement because of its many benefits for digestive health. It is a staple in many peoples diets or used for overall health as it is used as a probiotic. Lactobacillus gasseri can help reduce inflammation, improve immune function, and assist with digestion. Probiotics are defined as living organisms proven to provide health benefits typically by restoring the gut microbiota. Lactobacillus gasseri also can help the body break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off “bad” organisms. It is also beneficial for vaginal health, typically as a suppository, because Lactobacillus gasseri is found in vaginal flora, as it maintains the flora healthy and well.  Lactobacillus gasseri can also be found in common foods, not just in supplement form. Common foods with Lactobacillus gasseri are miso, sauerkraut. kimchi, yogurt, kombucha, and kefir. Many people utilize Lactobacillus gasseri for weight loss. According to www.healthline.com a study was conducted in which 210 people with significant amounts of belly fat consumed Lactobacillus gasseri for 12 weeks, and reported reduced body weight, reduced fat around organs, lower body mass index (BMI), smaller waist size, and hip circumference and belly fat was reduced by 8.5%. Lactobacillus gasseri is
an anaerobic, meaning it requires an absence of free oxygen,  gram-positive bacterium that falls into the category of lactic acid bacteria. It is also being considered beneficial for respiratory tract infections, along with other probiotics. It is even being considered to help with cancer as it has been shown to effectively reduce DNA damage induced by chemical carcinogens within rats.  (Davood Maleki, … Babak Golkhalkhali, in Probiotics, Prebiotics, and Synbiotics, 2016). It was first identified in 1980 by François Gasser.

Overview The nature of a disaster determines the response and future preparednes

Overview
The nature of a disaster determines the response and future preparedness. The geographic scope, number of populations affected, and uniqueness of the threat may present unique difficulties in disaster preparedness and emergency management. Preparing for and addressing emergencies effectively is a joint responsibility of all the stakeholders. On the basis of their capabilities, responsibilities, and priorities, each stakeholder plays a role in responding to the emergency, which contributes to the overall response.
Before you begin working on the assignment, review the module learning resources. Use the module resources to choose one interagency recovery coordination case study, which you will use to complete this assignment.
In this assignment, you will analyze your selected case study to understand the magnitude of the emergency, the involvement of stakeholders, challenges with the emergency planning, effectiveness of the plan, and areas for improvement. On the basis of your analysis, you will write an assessment summarizing the agency or agencies’ involvement in the disaster response efforts and make recommendations for future improvement to the federal agency. By being able to explain how federal agencies address stakeholder needs during an emergency, including how competing priorities between federal and state agencies impact local-level stakeholders and how stakeholders influence disaster recovery and preparedness plans, you will be even more prepared to successfully complete Project Two.
Prompt
Choose and analyze one interagency recovery coordination case study provided in the module resources. Then, submit a document containing both an assessment report and a recommendation letter to the head of the federal agency involved in the disaster recovery.
You must cite at least three additional outside sources to support your assessment and recommendations. You may not use any of the module resources to support your claims (with the exception of the case study you chose from the module resources). For additional help with completing this assignment, refer to the  You may also use the Online Writing Center, located in the Academic Support module.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Background of Disaster or Emergency: Briefly describe the background of the selected disaster or emergency case study from the healthcare perspective.
Role of Federal Response Agencies: Analyze the role of the federal response agency in emergency or disaster management from the selected case study. Consider the following questions in your response:
How does the federal agency’s involvement impact the overall emergency response management in the chosen case study?
How did coordination between the federal agency and other stakeholders positively and/or negatively impact the emergency response management?
Stakeholders’ Influence: Analyze the influence of stakeholders on the emergency preparedness policies. Consider the following questions in your response:
Who among the stakeholders led and/or influenced the emergency response management in the selected case study?
Who (federal, state, or local agencies), according to you, has a more significant impact on the emergency preparedness policies, and why?
Impact of Stakeholders’ Priorities: Describe the impact of stakeholders’ priorities on the effectiveness of emergency response management. Consider the following questions in your response:
How do the priorities of federal and state agencies impact emergency response management?
Which factors do federal and state agencies consider when setting up the priorities for emergency response management?

Which three response efforts do you consider effective, and why?
Which three response efforts do you consider ineffective, and why?
Which of the stakeholders contributed more effectively than others, and why?
Recommendations: Recommend a minimum of two strategic improvement suggestions to the federal agencies about emergency response management. Consider the following question in your response:
How will your suggestions help underserved/vulnerable populations?

Health Policy Issue Option 2: Certificate of Need
A certificate of need (CON) allows a healthcare provider to build a new facility, make other high-dollar capital investments, and develop new services. A process exists in states with CON laws that requires providers to demonstrate a need for these new services and expenditures. The basic assumption of CON regulations is that this regulatory process is an effective healthcare cost control measure. Several decades ago, all states in the United States had CON laws. Today, approximately two-thirds of states still have CON regulations.
You are a legislative consultant based in West Virginia. A hospital in Kenova, West Virginia, is interested in creating a high-quality long-term care facility for elderly patients. After conducting a market study, the hospital administration has identified Kenova as a region where the local healthcare facilities are currently inadequate to meet the existing and expected future demands. The senior management views this new long-term care facility as an opportunity to rectify this concern.
As they begin to develop a business plan, however, they discover the new project will require authorization by the West Virginia Health Facilities & Services Review Board because of the state’s CON laws. In West Virginia, there is a specific CON law established in 1974 that regulates the construction of a wide range of healthcare facilities, including long-term care facilities, hospitals, birthing centers, and dialysis centers.
You are working for the hospital as a legislative consultant on this project. You have been asked to identify the stakeholders and their interest in this entire process to help the hospital’s senior management understand who will be involved in and affected by moving forward with the construction of this facility. Also, you will be responsible for understanding the end-to-end process of obtaining a CON and providing senior management with the information they need to make decisions related to this. Because the process for obtaining CON is somewhat complicated, the hospital administration has highly recommended that you research the required efforts from each stakeholder involved in the process during your assessment.
The hospital administration was also recently informed that in order to obtain a CON, developers of healthcare facilities must apply to the local governmental authorities by making the case for why the community in question would benefit from that new development. However, the exact criteria used to determine whether an application for a CON is approved can differ widely between states. The senior management is unsure what the Health Facilities & Services Review Board’s criteria are for West Virginia, so they have asked for your recommendations on how best to approach these criteria based on your assessment.
In your presentation to the senior management of the hospital, you should explain the process to obtain the CON and how each stakeholder is associated with this initiative. You should also share the legal and ethical considerations involved in this process.

Public and private hospitals jointly serve healthcare needs in the United States

Public and private hospitals jointly serve healthcare needs in the United States, but each entity has its own set of values, accountability, funding, and delivery models, which may often be conflicting in nature. One area of such conflict is related to financial values. For example, whereas public hospitals work on the principle of service, private hospitals mostly work on the principle of making a profit. Such conflicting financial values often have an impact on other stakeholders, the healthcare system, and financial decisions related to health policies and laws.
In your initial post, describe the roles of public and private hospitals in healthcare and include the following:
Identify three conflicting financial values of public hospitals (government hospitals) and private hospitals (for-profit and nonprofit).
Describe how values influence the financial models of public and private hospitals.
Compare the financial values of public and private hospitals and how these values affect health policies and laws.
In your response posts to at least two peers, address the following:
Compare and contrast the key conflicting financial values identified by your peers against your own initial post.
Identify one other essential value conflict your peers did not identify in their initial posts. Explain why you think the identified value conflict must be considered as it impacts health policies and laws.
