Resistance Down Under!
Half of Australians say they won’t be getting vaccinated against flu The two biggest reasons that half of Australians are refusing to get flu shots have been revealed by a national survey. The Finder.com.au survey took the opinions of 2,003 adults and found that half of them are not planning on getting a flu vaccination in 2018. Expanding the figures to represent the Australian population that is over nine million people who will not be getting vaccinated. The biggest reasons those surveyed stated for avoiding the flu jab is believing that it makes you sick or that it doesn’t actually work. Generation X are the most suspicious of the vaccine with 18 per cent thinking it doesn’t work while only 10 per cent of younger people subscribe to this view. Baby Boomers are the most proactive with 72 per cent planning on getting the shot, while 39 per cent of Generation Y will be vaccinated.
Here It Comes!
Experimental universal flu vaccine begins second phase of testing in U.S.: Report The second phase of human trials for a universal flu vaccine has begun in the U.S., the National Institutes of Health announced Friday, as scientists continue to search for an all-encompassing solution to protecting against the unpredictable and constantly mutating virus. The clinical trial, which will take place at four sites around the U.S., will enroll 120 healthy volunteers to either be injected with the experimental vaccine, called M-001, or a placebo. Six previous clinical trials with a total of 698 participants in Israel and Europe established that M-001 was safe, well-tolerated and produced an immune response to a broad range of influenza strains, according to a statement by the NIH. Participants who either receive the experimental vaccine or the placebo will also be injected with the seasonal flu vaccine.
Good News On Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer screening recommendations get rolled back by US task force Men between the ages of 55 and 69 — particularly those at high-risk for prostate cancer — should talk to their physicians about the pros and cons of prostate cancer screening, according to new guidelines released Tuesday. The guidelines, published Tuesday in the journal JAMA, come from the US Preventive Services Task Force, an independent panel of experts that makes recommendations to the American public about preventive services. They are an update to previous guidelines published in 2012 that recommended against routine screening due to the risks involved in additional testing and treatment. But according to new research, prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screening for men in the 55 to 69 age group could prevent 1.3 deaths and 3 cases of cancer metastases for every 1,000 men screened. Therefore, the task force concluded that screening does make sense for men in that age group, but that they should be aware of the potential risks associated with additional testing.
Special Guest – Josh Hendrix!
Born and raised in the Bluegrass State and a University of Kentucky alumnus, Mr. Hendrix relocatedback to Central Kentucky in 2014 on a mission to help rebuild the US hemp industry. Seeing a need to bring farmers, processors, manufacturers and supporters of the industry together, Mr. Hendrix founded the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association that summer and still serves on the Board of Directors. He also became an active member of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Council where he now serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors. In 2015 he created and became President of Hendrix Hemp, a licensed hemp producer that manages hemp cultivation on his family’s, Mayflower Farm, in Mount Sterling, KY. In early 2016 Mr. Hendrix was appointed to the Technical Advisory Council for the National Hemp Association and accepted a role on the Senior Advisory Board of the institutional trading platform for hemp, Seed CX. Currently Mr. Hendrix serves as the Director of Business Development – Domestic Production for CV Sciences, Inc. where he works with numerous universities, farmers, businesses, and organizations to help facilitate the infrastructure necessary to establish a modern domestic supply chain for hemp in the United States.
DEA’s Marijuana Extract Rule Does Not Apply to Hemp Monday, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a petition from the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) to review the controversial “marijuana extract rule” issued in 2016 by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). This was a disappointment to some who were hoping that the Ninth Circuit would issue an historic ruling akin to its 2004 order that the DEA could not prohibit the importation of non-psychoactive hemp products into the U.S. However, this very short decision should not be read as a substantive setback for the U.S. hemp industry. Contrary to some early reports, this ruling does NOT classify hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) as a controlled substance, nor does it signify that the popular hemp product is federally illegal. Indeed, the ruling has no legal or practical impact on hemp or hemp products.
Move Over Flintstones Vitamins! SSRI’s Are Here!
Antidepressants In Pregnancy Tied To Smarter Kids Children who were exposed to antidepressants in the womb may score higher on certain tests of mental abilities at the age of 12, a small, preliminary study suggests. Among the 51 kids the researchers analyzed, those whose mothers used antidepressants during pregnancy typically scored higher on tests of “executive function” than kids with no prenatal exposure to the medications. Executive function refers to a set of mental skills that essentially help you get things done — including focus and attention, self-control and flexible thinking. The new study is one of the latest to look at whether kids with prenatal exposure to antidepressants — specifically, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) — are different from other kids.
Hour 2 – Moving The Goalpost Makes Money!
Presto-Chango! New Guidelines Equal Bigger Profits for Big Pharma And Healthcare Industry You may have noticed a pattern with medical associations and other organizations that determine health guidelines for the average Joe or Joan…Every time the health guidelines change, a new group of people is suddenly considered unhealthy. The ever-changing guidelines disseminated by the”experts” are like a constantly lowering limbo bar that usually benefits the healthcare industry. At least that’s what it looks like if you make a little timeline and compare notes. I’m not saying these changes to health guidelines are all wrong, as newer findings should replace archaic practice — but it wouldn’t hurt to take these things with a grain of sea salt. In other words, always question “authority.” You know your body best. In 1998, around 29 million Americans became overweight overnight without gaining a single pound, thanks to new body mass index (BMI) standards set by NIH. Many were suddenly obese. Example: a 5 ft 4 in. woman at 154.9 pounds would have been perfectly healthy in May 1998. In June of that same year, she was suddenly “overweight” at 145 pounds and “obese” at 175 pounds. Talk about a boost to the weight-loss industry!
Is There An Anxiety Epidemic?
Almost 40% of Americans Are Becoming More Anxious Almost 40% of Americans are more anxious than they were at this time last year, according to a new American Psychiatric Association (APA) poll. The APA surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults about their sources and levels of anxiety, and found that 39% reported being more anxious than they were at this time last year. Another 39% said they were equally anxious, while only 19% said they were less anxious than last year. Approximately 40 million American adults — roughly 18% of the population — have an anxiety disorder, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Safety, health and finances seemed to be the greatest sources of anxiety, according to the APA poll. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said “keeping myself or my family safe” and “my health” made them either somewhat or extremely anxious. Sixty-seven percent said the same of “paying my bills or expenses.” Politics and interpersonal relationships followed at 56% and 48%, respectively.

Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer and 1 in 8 Canadian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. The treatments recommended by mainstream medical doctors consist of some combination of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, all of which have side-effects. What few doctors and patients realize is that evidence–based complementary therapies are available that create an internal environment unfavourable for cancer growth, that boost the immune system and minimize side-effects of conventional treatments. These complementary modalities include, but are not limited to, (1) a ketogenic diet; (2) selected botanicals and nutritional supplements; (3) detoxification via saunas, colonics, and dental work; (4) hyperthermia with Rife frequencies; (5) low level light/laser therapy (LLLT); (6) UV light therapy; (7) high dose vitamin C; (8) ozone therapy; (9) pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy; and (10) bioresonance therapy. The evidence–based research for these treatments will be presented. These complementary therapies can play an important role in preventative health care for chronic illness and, ideally, should be part of an integrative system of health care for the treatment of cancer.
No, This Is Not A Joke
Oregon horse sues former owner for $100,000, seeking damages for neglect A horse is suing his former Washington County owner for $100,000 in damages in a rare case in which an animal is listed as a plaintiff in legal action against its guardian. The Animal Legal Defense Fund in Portland has filed suit against former owner Gwendolyn Vercher, 51, of Cornelius on behalf of the horse. Justice, an 8-year-old American Quarter Horse, is seeking damages for negligence that left him 300 pounds underweight and afflicted with lice, a skin infection and damaged genitals from severe frostbite, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court. He will require special medical care for the rest of his life, the suit said. Justice, formerly known as Shadow when he lived with Vercher, was removed from the Cornelius property in March 2017 and now lives at a horse rescue in Troutdale.
