Joe Biden promises to ‘cure cancer’ if elected president Former Vice President Joe Biden made a bold promise on Tuesday to “cure cancer” if he is elected president in 2020. At a campaign event in Ottumwa, Iowa, Biden expressed the difficulty one faces with a “loss” of a family member and others attempt to comfort them saying, “‘I know how you feel'” when in reality they have “no idea how I feel,” which is likely in reference to the loss of his son Beau Biden, who died in 2015 from brain cancer. “That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that… I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden declared. His remarks were welcomed with applause. In 2016, Biden headed the “Cancer Moonshot” program during the Obama administration in a renewed effort to find a cure for cancer. He also launched the Biden Cancer Initiative after leaving office.
Measles cases surpass 1,000 in span of 6 months; medical experts worry about summer travel Reported measles cases exceeded 1,000 in the first six months of 2019 – the highest number in 27 years, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The total in the USA has grown to 1,022, the CDC reported. That’s the highest since 1992, when there were 2,200 cases nationwide. Cases have been reported in 28 states and outbreaks are ongoing in seven communities, according to the CDC. Factors that may prompt outbreaks: a greater number of travelers who contract the disease abroad and more cases spreading in communities with groups of unvaccinated people. The resurgence of measles has caused widespread concern and a surge of proposed laws. Officials in the New York City suburb of Rockland County barred minors not vaccinated for measles from public places for 30 days, and Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency in Washington.
Many breakfast cereals still contaminated by weed killer, environmental group says Several popular breakfast foods, including Cheerios and Nature Valley products, continue to test positive for trace amounts of a controversial herbicide that may increase the risk of cancer, according to a report released Wednesday by an environmental advocacy group. The Environmental Working Group, which has links to the organics industry, found that all 21 of the products it tested had levels of glyphosate that were “higher than what EWG scientists consider protective for children’s health.” Manufacturers maintain that their foods are safe, and the findings aren’t unprecedented: The group also found in October that most of the breakfast cereals it tested contained glyphosate, the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup. The new report follows two prominent legal verdicts that determined the herbicide caused cancer in plaintiffs. A federal jury unanimously determined in March that Roundup was a “substantial factor” in causing a California man’s cancer. And last month, California jurors ordered the manufacturer, Monsanto, to pay over $2 billion to a couple who said long-term exposure to the product caused their cancers.
Nitrate in tap water may cause 12,500 annual cancer cases, study says Nitrate pollution has polluted drinking water around the United States, which may lead to more than 12,500 cases of cancer each year, a new study says. Treating cancer caused by the polluted water, brought on by farm runoff produced by fertilizer and manure, may lead to $1.5 billion in annual medical costs, according to research published Tuesday in Environmental Research. “There is a history of inaction in protecting drinking water at the federal level: EPA hasn’t updated its contaminant list for tap water since 1991. And most drinking water standards are a compromise between public health protection and economic feasibility, with the true safe levels almost always below the [Environmental Protection Agency’s] maximum contaminant level,” Alexis Temkin, a toxicologist at Environmental Working Group and study lead author, told UPI. The federal government set nitrate drinking standards at 10 parts per million, according to the EPA website. However, the Environmental Working Group points to studies connecting nitrate in drinking water to cancer and other ailments.
No, Cannabis Is Not as Dangerous as the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster It might often feel like it’s not worth getting down in the mud with anti-cannabis prohibitionists, given that engaging with their platform serves to bring it more attention. However, in the face of harmful exaggeration, sometimes it is worth exposing the sheer bizarre logic of an anti-cannabis claim. Former New York Times reporter and current anti-cannabis campaigner Alex Berenson is the author of “Tell Your Children,” an anti-legalization book that details the supposed dangers of widespread marijuana use, most disturbingly upticks in psychosis and subsequent violence. Though Berenson’s book has many detractors, in the cannabis industry and in the scientific community (including some of the researchers whose work he cites extensively), he’s still regarded as an authority on the matter of legalization and its potential pitfalls. He’s also an active Twitter user and a possible HBO subscriber. This last conjecture is based on the latest from his account, in which he compared the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl (subject of a popular new HBO miniseries) to the supposed scourge of cannabis.
Question of The Day!
Hi Dr Bell I spoke to you a few times you helped me through cdiff 2 years ago when the antibiotics didn’t work. I have been researching biofilm and is pretty scary. some practioners say you do not want to disrupt the biofilm that the bacteria lives in. it could be a terrible thing to unleash the stuff living in the in your system. what are your thoughts on this and silver and with. I have had divertitulis attacks and I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago on iv because they scare you and tell you if you don’t you could perforate your colon. I am doing a repeat catscan to see if it as improved tomorrow if not I will do the silver protocol but I am concerned about killing off the good bacteria. do you have any other suggestions to stop the attacks
Thank you, Karen

TOPIC: HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS B VACCINE
HEPATITIS B COURSE NOW AVAILABLE
AT COURSES4MASTERY.COM –
Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. Many things, including drugs, alcohol, environmental chemicals and autoimmune conditions, can cause hepatitis.
Many viruses can inflame the liver, including the virus that causes mono and a less common virus called cytomegalovirus, or CMV. But the most common viruses to infect and inflame the liver are the family of hepatitis viruses. They are responsible for about half of all cases of human hepatitis. While there at least SIX hepatitis viruses, named from A to G, the most common are types A, B, and C.
I want to make a quick comment about the new treatment available for chronic hepatitis C infection.
Harvoni is a medication to treat specific genotypes of chronic hepatitis C in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. It has been so successful that it is actually called a “cure” for persons with those genotypes. This is where it gets interesting: In April 2018, speaking at The Genome Revolution Conference, Goldman Sachs analyst Salveen Richter said, that cures could be bad for business. He went on to say, “While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for developers looking for sustained cash flow.” https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/11/goldman-asks-is-curing-patients-a-sustainable-business-model.html
Always remember: the money is in the medicine, NOT in the cure.
But today we are hear to talk about Hepatitis B and the Hepatitis B vaccine. How did this vaccine become part of the pediatric schedule? The better question is WHY?
1. The Illness: What is Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is an infection of your liver. It is most commonly spread when people come in contact with the blood, open sores, or body fluids of someone who is infected with the hepatitis B virus.
When you’re first infected, it can often take up to six months before you know you have the infection. Symptoms generally present as fatigue, low grade fever, loss of appetite – similar to most other viral infection. The clue to test for a hepatitis infection is the appearance of jaundice – when the whites of your eyes turn yellow. Your urine may turn to an orange or brownish color and, depending on how much bilirubin is released from your liver by the infection, your skin may even have a yellow or orange tinge to it. The only way that a viral hepatitis B infection can be accurately diagnosed is with a blood test.
More than 95% of persons who contract Hepatitis B recover uneventfully and fully; that’s why there are no treatments offered for acute illness.
2. A (Brief) History of the Vaccine
This vaccine should never have been added to the routine pediatric vaccination schedule. Not EVER. In fact, I have said for years that if I were retired and independently wealthy, I would devote the rest of my life to eliminating this vaccination from ever being injected into a single baby.
In the early 1980s, several preliminary HBV vaccines were developed. The vaccines consisted of inactivated HBsAg particles recovered and purified from the serum of individuals who had a chronic hepatitis B infection. These antigens were absorbed onto aluminum. Called plasma-derived vaccines, the target for this vaccine was to be adult homosexual men and those that were using IV drugs.
But in the 1980s was when AIDS was first being identified …within the same population of men. This at-risk population refused the hepatitis B vaccine for fear of actually CONTRACTING HIV-AIDS. So, the vaccine was abandoned.
Sept. 1991: MMWR – Hepatitis B Virus: A Comprehensive Strategy for Eliminating Transmission in the United States Through Universal Childhood Vaccination: Recommendations of (ACIP) (full text)
“This document provides the rationale for a comprehensive strategy to eliminate transmission of HBV and ultimately reduce the incidence of hepatitis B and hepatitis B-associated chronic liver disease in the United States. The recommendations for implementing this strategy include making hepatitis B vaccine a part of routine vaccination schedules for infants.
#3: The vaccine ingredients – and studies pointing to problems with at least some of the ingredients
Over the next several years, recombinant DNA technologies came to the forefront. Researchers were able to get the virus to replicate in yeast and then extract the HepBSAgn from the culture. They used Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) to grow the virus.
- This hepatitis B viral vaccine derived from HBsAg produced in yeast cells.
- The fermentation process involves growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae on a complex fermentation medium, which consists of an extract of yeast, soy peptone, dextrose, amino acids and mineral salts.
- Each dose contains:
- 5 mcg of hepatitis B surface antigen
- Less than 1% yeast protein
- 500 mg of aluminum (provided as amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate [AAHS]
- up to 15 mcg/mL residual formaldehyde.
- Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant) is suspension of noninfectious HBsAg purified surface antigen of the virus obtained by culturing genetically engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells, which carry the surface antigen gene of the hepatitis B virus.
- Each dose contains:
- 10 mcg of hepatitis B surface antigen
- Up to 5% yeast protein
- 250 mcg of aluminum hydroxide.
- 9000 mcg of sodium chloride
- 0.98 mg phosphate buffers (disodium phosphate dehydrate
- 0.71 mg sodium dihydrogen phosphate dehydrate
- Syringes contain natural rubber latex
February 1998: Journal – VACCINE. (abstract) “Major adverse reactions to yeast-derived hepatitis B vaccines—a review.”
Severe adverse events have been reported in the ten years which have passed since the introduction of the vaccine. Our review of the literature revealed reports of serious adverse reactions which included anaphylaxis and urticarial, as well as delayed reactions, including skin conditions, rheumatic conditions, vasculitis – including lupus and glomerulonephritis, blood conditions, ophthalmologic and neurologic reactions.”
Parents need to urgently know:
July 2018: Journal – Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal (abstract) Hospital, Maternal, and Birth Factors Associated with Hepatitis B Vaccination at Birth – West Virginia, 2015.
Methods: The study surveyed all 26 West Virginia birthing facilities in 2015 about their perinatal hepatitis B virus prevention policies.
Results: In 2015, there were 17,458 live births in these facilities. Of these, 14,006 (80.2%) infants received the birth dose of HepB vaccine. Hospitals that used of preprinted newborn routine admission vaccination orders had higher frequencies of HepB birth dose receipt.
What this means: Be sure your admission orders to a birthing center OR a hospital does not include routine STANDING ORDERS to give your baby the hepatitis B vaccine at birth. Be sure these are stricken from your hospital birth plan if you want to refuse the hepatitis B vaccine for your newborn. You should get all records in advance, line-out what you are refusing and perhaps even have the documents notarized.
