Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
The Flu Shot Crusader Jill Promoli is a photographer who specializes in wedding and lifestyle shoots—carefully lit, expertly framed images of happy, handsome families. And in the spring of 2016, her own family was the best possible advertisement for her work. She was 34 at the time, and lived with her husband, Craig McGee, a portfolio manager at a wealth management firm, in a good-sized house in Mississauga. They had three beautiful, healthy children, each of whom had inherited their mother’s fiery-red hair: kindergarten-age daughter Isla and two-year-old twin boys Thomas and Jude. They were comfortable, settled, content.Early that May, Promoli got a call from the school informing her that Isla had suddenly developed a fever. A bug had apparently swept through the kindergarten class over the previous couple of weeks and had affected most of the students, one seriously enough to be hospitalized. Isla recovered within 24 hours, but later that week, Jude woke up with a low-grade fever. He had no other symptoms and still seemed like his usual gleeful self. Promoli wasn’t worried. They had a quiet morning at home and after lunch she put the twins down for a nap. Jude was singing before he fell asleep.
Pediatrician gets DEATH THREATS after posting a pro-vaccination video on TikTok reassuring young people that they don’t cause autism A pediatrician has been getting death threats after she posted a pro-vaccination video on new social media platform TikTok, in a bid to make children feel more comfortable about getting their jabs. Dr. Nicole Baldwin was forced to call police after one angry viewer responded ‘dead people don’t lie’ and another threatened to shut down The Blue Ash in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she has a satellite office. The hateful responses – including negative reviews on as Yelp, Google and her various social media pages – starting last Saturday, appeared to be from anti-vaxxers who belief vaccinations can cause autism in children, despite scientific research proving otherwise. Dr. Nicole Baldwin, 42, shared the video on Twitter January 11, and admitted she’d had negative responses. ‘Tried my hand at #Tiktok – this one struck a nerve. #VaccinateYourKids #VaccinesWork #somedocs,’ she captioned the recording. The clip shows her dancing to the song Cupid Shuffle as she points to colorful labels with names of illnesses that vaccination can help prevent. In the list of diseases she says ‘vaccines prevent’ is measles, polio, influenza, pertussis, hepatitis, HPV, meningitis, mumps, tetanus, varicella, rotavirus, and pneumococcus.
California could list common pain killer as carcinogen A fight is coming to California over whether to list one of the world’s most common over-the-counter drugs as a carcinogen, echoing recent high-profile battles over things like alcohol and coffee. The drug is acetaminophen, known outside the U.S. as paracetamol and used to treat pain and fevers. It is the basis for more than 600 prescription and over-the-counter medications for adults and children, found in well-known brands like Tylenol, Excedrin, Sudafed, Robitussin and Theraflu. Acetaminophen has been available in the U.S. without a prescription since 1955. Concerns about its potential link to cancer come from its relationship to another drug: phenacetin. That drug, once a common treatment for headaches and other ailments, was banned by the FDA in 1983 because it caused cancer.
Why you might catch the flu twice this season At least 13 million cases of the flu have already been diagnosed so far this season, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but experts are cautioning that those who have already battled the virus may be at risk of getting it for a second time as another strain gains traction across the U.S. Recent updates on the CDC’s weekly flu surveillance said that “approximately equal numbers of B/Victoria and A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses have been reported.” And while you can’t catch the same strain of the flu twice, you can be sickened by one and then later contract another as we face what one expert calls a possible “double-barrel season.” “We have all these odd ingredients coming together so that we have, at this juncture, an awful lot of flu with the potential for being as bad as our last bad year, if not worse,” Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist with Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the medical director at the National Foundation for Infectious Disease, told Prevention.
Whistleblower Doctor Claims Tamiflu Drug Fraud Bilked $1.5 Billion from Government to Stockpile Drug that is Ineffective in Stopping the Flu Drug company Hoffmann-La Roche (OTCMKTS – RHHBY) bilked U.S. federal and state governments out of $1.5 billion by misrepresenting clinical studies and falsely claiming that its well-known influenza medicine Tamiflu was effective at containing potential pandemics, according to a recently unsealed whistleblower lawsuit. The lawsuit claims the drugmaker’s scheme involved publishing misleading articles falsely stating that Tamiflu reduces complications, severity, hospitalizations, mortality and transmission of influenza. The company then used those articles to aggressively market the drug to the government for pandemic use. Relying on the supposed truthfulness of Roche’s claims, federal and state governments spent about $1.5 billion to stockpile Tamiflu to combat influenza pandemics, according to the complaint.
“As alleged in the complaint – Tamiflu does not do what Roche promised,” said attorney Mark Lanier of the Houston-based Lanier Law Firm. “Roche hid this fact for many years by selectively citing its studies and suppressing the data about Tamiflu. The company utilized lobbyists, key opinion leaders and ghostwriters to promote Tamiflu with a deceptive promise to governments fearful of an influenza pandemic.”
Benzodiazepines might be a ‘hidden element’ of the US’ overdose epidemic — and doctor visits for prescriptions are increasing Doctors have been increasingly prescribing benzodiazepines, also known as “benzos,” in recent years. Looking at data from 2014 to 2016, new research found this class of central nervous system depressants was prescribed at about 65.9 million office-based doctor visits. That’s a rate of 27 annual visits per 100 adults. The research, which analyzed data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, was published on Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Benzodiazepines such as alprazolam, diazepam and lorazepam can be helpful when taken on a short-term basis. Doctors often prescribe them to relieve acute anxiety, agitation or to help someone sleep. Taken over the long term, they can become addictive. In older adults, the drugs have been shown to increase the risk of falls, cloud judgment and impair memory. There is an increased risk of hospitalization and death for people who take benzos, particularly if they are taken with an opioid.
Comment of The Day!
Thank you Robert for responding to my question in yesterday’s episode. I do remember getting a mercury filled tooth pulled around the same time. I have over the last few years been getting dental work done at an office that does not use mercury and they have been removing and replacing my old fillings with composite resin. Going to get me the heavy metal detox and silica now. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Everything you said makes complete sense. The power to heal is ours. Love you brothers – Kealoha (pronounced K-aloha)
Special Guest Dr. Shiva
Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, the inventor of email and polymath, holds four degrees from MIT, is a world-renowned systems scientist, inventor and entrepreneur. He is a Fulbright Scholar, Lemelson-MIT Awards Finalist, India’s First Outstanding Scientist and Technologist of Indian Origin, Westinghouse Science Talent Honors Award recipient, and a nominee for the U.S. National Medal of Technology and Innovation. His love of medicine and complex systems began in India when he became intrigued with medicine at the age of five as he observed his grandmother, a farmer and healer in the small village of Muhavur in South India, apply Siddha, India’s oldest system of traditional medicine, to heal and support local villagers. These early experiences inspired him to pursue the study of modern systems science, information technology and eastern and traditional systems of medicine to develop an integrative framework linking eastern and western systems of medicine.
In 1978, as a precocious 14-year-old, after completing a special program in computer science at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Science at NYU, Ayyadurai was recruited by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) as a Research Fellow, where he developed the first electronic emulation of the entire interoffice mail system (Inbox, Outbox, Folders, Address Book, Memo, etc.), which he named “EMAIL,” to invent the world’s first email system, resulting in him being awarded the first United States Copyright for Email, Computer Program for Electronic Mail System, at a time when Copyright was the only protection for software inventions.
Ayyadurai went on to receive four degrees from MIT, including a bachelors in electrical engineering and computer science, and a dual master’s degree in mechanical engineering and visual studies from the MIT Media Laboratory. In 2003, he returned to MIT to complete his doctoral work in systems biology within the Department of Biological Engineering, where he developed CytoSolve®, a scalable computational platform for modeling the cell by dynamic integration of molecular pathways models. Following his doctoral work, he returned to India on a Fulbright, where he discovered the systems theoretic basis of eastern systems of medicine, resulting in Systems Health®, a new educational program that provides a scientific foundation of integrative medicine. While at MIT, he also developed a pioneering new course called Systems Visualization which integrates systems theory, narrative story telling, metaphor and data visualization to provide visualization of complex systems.

Infrastructure IS the Foundation for Real Solutions – Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society or enterprise. Today, infrastructure includes many foundational systems not only the transportation system of roads, bridges, highways but also the complex technologies that operate our electrical grids, healthcare, educational, scientific, research, networking, and digital systems necessary for our survival and advancement.
Humankind’s great advances were always coupled with advances in our infrastructure. Such advances were simply not given to us but the result of We The People rising up. Let’s never forget it was the revolutionary movements of American workers during the late 1800’s to 1900’s that delivered us the public health infrastructures of sanitation, hygiene, electricity, food transportation, refrigeration, elimination of child labor, and nutrition. That infrastructure is what reduced the death rate for all infectious diseases long before the introduction of vaccines. The U.S. mortality rate for measles alone was reduced by 97% before the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1963.
