Presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson slammed for calling mandatory vaccinations ‘Orwellian’ Presidential candidate and longtime Oprah Winfrey collaborator Marianne Williamson is backtracking after her comments about mandatory vaccinations sparked outcry. During a campaign stop in Manchester, N.H. on Wednesday, the Democrat likened concerns over mandatory vaccinations to the abortion. “To me, it’s no different than the abortion debate,” NBC News reporter Julia Jester says Williamson told supporters. “The U.S. government doesn’t tell any citizen, in my book, what they have to do with their body or their child.” The author and spiritual adviser also reportedly called mandatory vaccinations “draconian and Orwellian.” Like Jessica Biel — who last week received backlash after voicing opposition to a California bill which would limit medical exemptions for vaccinations — Williamson has been criticized for her remarks. Many critics, including comedian Kathy Griffin, accused her of endangering public health, as anti-vaccination views have been blamed for outbreaks of measles and chicken pox.
NYS Teachers Pension Fund Tied to Vaccine Manufacturers Several legislators in NYS, namely the rather crass Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, (who recently gave the finger to his constituents but said that he was itching his nose), Sen. Brad Hoylman and Sen. David Carlucci have taken it upon themselves to lead the NY charge to strip people of the inalienable rights to their own bodies. Specifically, they are pushing legislation that would end a parent’s right to opt out of vaccinating their children using a religious exemption. But WHY? In an article by Ken Girardin April 19, 2018, it was found that government unions spent more to influence state and local officials than real estate, trial lawyer, tobacco and hospital interests combined.
Processed foods may hold key to rise in autism With the number of children diagnosed with autism on the rise, the need to find what causes the disorder becomes more urgent every day. UCF researchers are now a step closer to showing the link between the food pregnant women consume and the effects on a fetus’ developing brain. Drs. Saleh Naser, Latifa Abdelli and UCF undergraduate research assistant Aseela Samsam have identified the molecular changes that happen when neuro stem cells are exposed to high levels of an acid commonly found in processed foods. In a study published June 19 in Scientific Reports, a Nature journal, the UCF scientists discovered how high levels of Propionic Acid (PPA), used to increase the shelf life of packaged foods and inhibit mold in commercially processed cheese and bread, reduce the development of neurons in fetal brains.
Despite measles outbreak, legislation pushing Wisconsin parents to vaccinate children going nowhere As the nation faces the largest outbreak of measles in 27 years, a bill that would make it more difficult to send children to school without vaccinations likely won’t make it through Wisconsin’s Legislature. It’s the second time legislation aiming to eliminate parents’ ability to waive vaccination requirements on the basis of their personal beliefs hasn’t gained enough supportamong state lawmakers. Rep. Chuck Wichgers, R-Muskego, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he won’t schedule a public hearing on the bill to avoid putting new rules on parents’ medical decisions for their children. Wichgers, who leads the committee where the bill is assigned, said he “supports a parent’s right to decide when and how their children should receive treatment.” The decision to stall the bill comes after Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, also said that while he supports vaccinations, he doesn’t support mandating them. “Would I go out and testify and say that vaccination is the way that Wisconsin parents should go? Yes, I would. But I also think it’s not the role of government to dictate a decision like that for their kids,” he said in May. “But it should be something we strongly support.”
Congress Votes YES to Protect Legal Marijuana For the first time ever, the House of Representatives just voted to restrict the Department of Justice from interfering with the states that have legalized adult-use marijuana. The importance of this 267 to 165 bipartisan vote on the Blumenauer amendment cannot be overstated. Today, nearly one in four Americans reside in a jurisdiction where the adult use of cannabis is legal under state statute. Today’s action by Congress highlights the growing power of our movement and the work of NORML leaders all around the country. “It’s past time we protect all cannabis programs,” said Rep. Earl Blumenauer, co-founder of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus and lead sponsor of the amendment. “We have much more work to do. The federal government is out of touch and our cannabis laws are out of date. I’m pleased that the House agrees and we are able to move forward.”

France has lowest levels of trust in vaccines globally France has the lowest levels of trust in vaccines globally, according to the world’s biggest survey on public attitudes toward health and science, which was published on Wednesday. A third (33 percent) of French people do not agree that immunization is safe, and it is also the only country where a majority (55 percent) believe science and technology will reduce the total number of jobs available, according to the poll of more than 140,000 people across 144 countries. The survey of people aged 15 and older was devised by Wellcome, a British medical charity, and conducted by Gallup World Poll between April and December 2018. It found that people living in high-income countries have the lowest confidence in vaccines, a result that ties in to the rise of the anti-vaccination movement, in which people refuse to believe in the benefits of vaccinations or claim that the treatment is dangerous.
Ohio board delays decision on medical marijuana for anxiety, autism spectrum disorder The State Medical Board of Ohio delayed a vote Wednesday morning on whether people with anxiety and autism spectrum disorder could legally obtain medical marijuana – without saying when they’d again circle around to the issue. Michael Schottenstein, the board’s acting president and a Columbus-area psychiatrist, said there are two new board members who haven’t even gone through orientation, including one who wasn’t present at Wednesday’s monthly meeting. The new members want to be involved in the discussions but haven’t had time to review research and testimony that the board has received on the conditions. Furthermore, members have received a “substantial amount of information, both pro and con” about marijuana since May, when a four-member committee voted to recommend the conditions before the full, 12-member board, he said.
Surprising Sources of Inflammation Inflammation is a case of your body on high alert. It’s sparked by your immune system whenever you have some kind of damage, such as a cut or infection. As a response, your immune system sends white blood cells and other chemicals to the damaged area to repair tissue, fight off bacteria or other pathogens, and promote healing. Once healed, other cells move into the affected area and clear the inflammatory substances out. Inflammation is your body’s natural defense system when you have an acute injury. Normal inflammation is a good thing, but inflammation can become an issue when it doesn’t clear out or the process stays switched on for too long. Then it can become a chronic problem. Chronic inflammation can cause all kinds of conditions, such as autoimmune illnesses, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and hundreds of other illnesses.
Prominent Toxicologist Urges Communities to Stop Fluoridation – Citing Adverse Health Effects “Risks of ingesting fluoride include lowered IQs and increased ADHD and hypothyroidism rates,” reports Steven G. Gilbert, PhD, DABT, Director and Founder of the Institute of Neurotoxicology and Neurological Disorders and affiliate professor at the University of Washington School of Public Health in “Fluoride Ingestion: Connecting the Dots for Health,” reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). He writes, between “2017 – 2019, high quality studies confirm lowering IQ at common [fluoride] exposure levels.” A 2006 NAS review determined that fluoride can interfere with brain functions. Since then, hundreds of studies in animals and humans validated that conclusion, he reports. Additionally, fluoride is an endocrine disrupter known to lower thyroid function since the 1950’s, he reports. Gilbert also authored the free ebook, “A Small Dose of Toxicology.” The chemical typically used to fluoridate water, fluorosilicic acid, can be contaminated with lead and/or arsenic. Both neurotoxic without any safe ingestion levels, he explains.
