Australia Bans… QUESTIONS?
‘Do You Know What’s In a Vaccine?’ Australia Moves To Remove ‘Anti-Vaccine’ Billboard An ‘anti-vaccine’ billboard is now displayed over a heavily trafficked corner in Perth, causing a slew of controversy in the area. Residents are upset that the owner of the billboard accepted money from the “American anti-vaccine group” and they want it immediately removed. Perth’s 7News interviewed a woman who’s child was “too young to be vaccinated” for whooping cough and reportedly passed away from the illness. She says she’s extremely upset that the billboard is allowed to display in the area. Australia is one of the most stringent, draconian vaccine areas in the world. It is surprising that a country with limitations on free speech would allow the billboard to hang. The state government is already moving to have the billboard removed. Sadly, the billboard ONLY ask if you know what is in a vaccine, it doesn’t technically discourage anyone from getting vaccinated. But that’s the place we’ve found ourselves as liberal policy continues to attack free speech. Remember, even questioning a vaccine makes you ‘anti-vaccine.’
Simple Question – Simple Answer?
Should healthy people take probiotic supplements? A visit to the supermarket these days can feel more like walking through a pharmacy, with an ever-expanding range of milks, yoghurts, pills, powders and speciality foods promoting their “probiotic” prowess. Advocates of probiotics have hailed them as the answer to all sorts of health issues and conditions. But what exactly are probiotics? And, more importantly, should you be taking them? Probiotics are scientifically defined as “live micro-organisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host”. In simple terms, they’re “good” bacteria that are beneficial to the body. Probiotics exist naturally in some foods (such as some types of yoghurt and fermented vegetables such as pickles and sauerkraut), but can also be taken in dietary supplement form, via products such as Yakult and Inner Health Plus. While our digestive system ordinarily contains trillions of microbes, including both “good” and “bad” bacteria, sometimes the balance between these can get out of whack. Diseases, poor lifestyle behaviours (such as not eating enough fruit and vegetables, heavy drinking, smoking, and physical inactivity) and ageing can all disrupt this balance.
YouTube Can’t Keep Up With The Censorship!
YouTube is Running Ads for Major Brands on “Fake Medical News Videos” YouTube has been running advertisements for major brands on videos that promote potentially dangerous theories about HIV/AIDS—an indication that the video platform’s human and automated reviewers are continuing to struggle with identifying and flagging content that might be seen as objectionable or offensive. In May and June, video advertisements for companies like Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, development platform Wix, insurance company Lemonade and mattress company SAATVA ran before YouTube videos that pushed widely discredited and debunked theories about HIV and AIDS. Those videos included claims that HIV infections are not dangerous, that HIV does not lead to AIDS and that necessary antiretroviral medication to treat HIV is more dangerous than the virus itself—claims that have been rejected and refuted by the scientific community. If believed, these erroneous claims about the virus could have dangerous health consequences for HIV-positive people or people who are at risk of contracting HIV.
Is The Debate Finally Settled?
Dogs vs cats: the smarter pet revealed by scientists A DOG’s bark is only a ruff means of communication. Instead, we should be looking at its wiggles and squirms. Jumping up. Rolling over. Lifting paws. It’s all doggie behaviour that makes them so endearing. But they’re actually trying to talk to us. Researchers from the University of Salford have been attempting to figure out what humanity’s greatest friends have been trying to tell us all these years. Their results have been published in the science journal Animal Cognition. They’ve identified some 47 different potential gestures they use in an attempt to communicate. They’ve managed to ‘translate’ 19 of them. Surprisingly, most of them mean ‘scratch me’. Not ‘feed me’ – though that’s right up there. But others communicate your canine’s desire to go outside, and play.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
Diabetes may be an early manifestation of pancreatic cancer A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, published by Oxford University Press, indicates that recent-onset type 2 diabetes may be early expression of pancreatic cancer. Diabetes was associated with a more than twofold higher risk of pancreatic cancer in African Americans and Latinos, but recent-onset diabetes was associated with a 2.3-fold greater increase in risk of pancreatic cancer than long-standing diabetes. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most fatal cancers, with a five-year survival rate of only 8 percent. This is because the vast majority of pancreatic cancerpatients (some 80 percent of them) are diagnosed at a late stage. Identification of high-risk people and ability to detect pancreatic cancer earlier would likely improve patient outcomes. Diabetes has been consistently associated with pancreatic cancer in previous studies, with a twofold higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer among diabetes patients. Diabetes has been proposed to be both a risk factor for and a consequence of pancreatic cancer. The prevalence of diabetes among pancreatic cancer patients is unusually high relative to other cancers.
Use of alternative medicines has doubled among kids, especially teens A new study published in JAMAPediatrics shows that since 2003, the use of alternative medicines, such as herbal products and nutraceuticals, among children has doubled. The University of Illinois at Chicago researchers who conducted the study cite an increased use of Omega-3 fatty acids and melatonin among adolescents ages 13 to 18 as the primary driver of the change, despite clinical recommendations against use of such supplements in children. Use of dietary supplements, of which herbal, non-vitamin alternative medicines are one type, remained high but otherwise stable, with approximately one-third of children using a dietary supplement. Study author Dima Qato says the widespread use of supplements among children and the increased use of alternative medicines among teens is worrisome. “Dietary supplements are not required to go through the same FDA regulations and approval process as prescription drugs. As a result, we know very little about their safety and effectiveness, especially in children,” said Qato, assistant professor of pharmacy systems, outcomes and policy at the UIC College of Pharmacy. “Many dietary supplements have also been implicated in adverse drug events, especially cardiovascular, which is a safety concern.”
Why more men are delaying prostate cancer treatment When Ben Pfeiffer was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April, his urologist noted in the biopsy report that he was leaning toward recommending that Pfeiffer have his prostate surgically removed. But Pfeiffer, 58, a married construction supervisor from Las Vegas with two grown daughters, said his wife insisted that he get a second opinion. It’s a good thing she did. The doctors Pfeiffer subsequently visited at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) did not believe surgery was needed. Pfeiffer said the results of the tests, which included genomic testing, showed he had a nonaggressive cancer that made him a good candidate for something called active surveillance, also known as “watchful waiting.”
Health Officials Alarmed: Texas Vaccine Resistance Up 20-Times Over Past Decade Texas has always been known for its libertarian and conservative foundation. It seems with vaccines, the trend when compared nationally, remains exactly in line with such beliefs. A new study has four major cities in Texas listed as “anti-vaccine hotspots.” The study, published in the Public Library of Science Medicine journal, has Plano, Fort Worth, Austin and Houston listed as national “hotspots” where health officials are proposing that a high potential for a disease outbreak exists. This means these cities have higher vaccine exemption rates than most other cities in the country. The study was accomplished by a Houston “vaccine scientist” named Dr. Peter Hotez who now believes the United States is due for a disease outbreak. Of course, blaming the anti-vaccine movement fosters a deeper divide nationally over the matter, something it is likely Hotez clearly understands. The name of the game is divide and conquer.
ASU-led study shows deep connection between diet and symptoms of autism A new study led by ASU Professor James Adams has shown that changes in diet can radically alter the lives of people with autism. Adams leads an ASU research program that investigates the biological and medical dimensions of autism spectrum disorders. Published in March, the most recent study by Adams and his team looks at the ways diet can influence specific symptoms and general quality of life of those with ASD. They did this by changing the diets of 67 children and adults with ASD and following their progress over the course of a year by having them take an assortment of tests. The tests ranged from blood tests to look at different nutrition markers to muscle strength tests to nonverbal IQ tests. The idea was to combine many different dietary changes in a single study to measure the total effect of these changes by the end of the year. They found that simply removing certain foods — especially those containing gluten, soy and casein, the main protein found in dairy — caused large improvements in non-verbal IQ test performance when paired with a multivitamin and a few other interventions, like epsom salt baths.
