Why Not Call It “Disease BS”?
Scientists warn of mysterious and deadly new epidemic called Disease X that could kill
millions around the world An unknown and deadly new illness dubbed Disease X has been added to the list of potential global epidemics that could kill millions. Each year scientists with the World Health Organisation (WHO) create a list of the most likely diseases to break out into a worldwide pandemic. This year, among the familiar Ebola, SARS, and Zika viruses is the new name of Disease X. And unlike the other pathogens, it is not known what causes Disease X or how doctors could try to treat it.
The deeper reason for drug ads on television Television viewers are inundated with drug ads from Big Pharma. It’s a flood. Have you ever heard of these drugs? Otezla, Xeljanz, Namzaric, Keytruda, Breo, Cosentyz? Not likely. If you have, do you know what conditions they treat? Highly unlikely. But there they are, splashed in commercials. Why? Who is going to remember to ask their doctor whether these and other obscure meds are right for them? What’s going on here? The answer is: IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT DRUGS ARE BEING ADVERTISED.
Pharma Bro Finally Gets Sentenced
No leniency for Shkreli: Bad-boy pharma executive gets 7 years in prison for fraud The
sentence is in. Despite pleas for sentencing mercy, “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli will spend up to seven years in prison on federal securities fraud charges. U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, who also fined Shkreli $75,000, handed down the decision Friday afternoon after a hearing that began with a request for leniency from Shkreli’s lawyer, reports say. “I’ve got my begging voice on,” Shkreli lawyer Benjamin Brafman told the judge, as quoted by Reuters. Shkreli, notorious for a demeanor that’s been labeled “cocky,” “insolent” and “remorseless,” cried as he addressed the judge, saying that “the only person to blame for me being here today is me.” “I took down Martin Shkreli,” he said.
Question of The Day!
I am having a second bout of dermatitis/eczema since August. It’s on my feet and last August I had such severe weeping, swelling, etc. that I got an infection, was put on the wrong oral antibiotics, (doctor error) and wound up hospitalized for a bacterial infection with interveneous antibiotics. The eczema came back about three weeks ago, and my new doctor (fired the old one) and I agreed we would do everything possible to avoid antibiotics. However, the weeping on my two great toes turned into gushing, blistering, etc. and I have now had to go on antibiotics again as a last resort. After listening to you for so long, I realize how bad this is, and I am deeply disturbed.
I have been trying to build up my immune system, I’ve been eating raw garlic w/manuka honey, earthing (I’m in SoCAL) so there’s sun, but I don’t know if what I’m doing is the best thing and at this point I’m at wit’s end. I’m also very concerned that this could be a chronic condition and I know I can’t keep on taking antibiotics.
Can you please help? I would greatly appreciate any information that you can give me to help me help myself and prevent more outbreaks.
Thank you, Robert, as always, I love your show.
Science Tackles Facebook – Where Do You Fit In?
Study Identifies 4 Types Of Facebook Users: Which One Are You? A study delving into the reasons why so many of us use Facebook so frequently boils it down to four main archetypes of Facebook users: the relationship builder, the selfie artist, the town crier, and the window shopper. Every day, 1.28 billion people check in on Facebook at some point. The average user spends 35 minutes per day on the social media platform. A research team from Brigham Young University explored users’ motivations and patterns in their motivations for regularly logging onto the site. “What is it about this social media platform that has taken over the world?” asks study lead author Tom Robinson in a university release.“Why are people so willing to put their lives on display? Nobody has ever really asked the question, ‘Why do you like this?’”
Hour 2 – Flu Season Is Ending. What Did We Learn?
10 Lessons Of The Recent Flu Season The recent winter flu season of 2017-2018 witnessed
numerous news headlines warning of terrible flu outbreaks and countless deaths. With these warnings came stern recommendations for Americans to get their flu shots, followed by suggestions to take prescription Tamiflu if recommended by one’s physician. Many Americans followed and preached this advice to others. The news reports circulated among holistic health communities and a minority of mainstream media outlets were quite different. Health reports spread of the flu vaccine’s failure to prevent flu, while also spreading and causing the flu itself. The flu vaccination was reported to cause death and paralysis in the form of Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Integrative physicians shared well-documented research proving that Tamiflu was ineffective at treating flu, with increasing risks of deaths and frightening hallucinations. Statistical manipulation of flu data and deaths was reported as part of a sales campaign to market flu vaccinations. Integrative doctors recommended safer and more effective protocols for preventing and treating the flu.
U.S. Government Continues to Pay Out Millions to Victims Injured by the Flu Shot The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their first meeting of 2018 on March 8th. These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines. Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death.
Less Is More?
Poor rural Victorians ‘had best diet’ Poor, rural societies which ate high-quality foods bought
locally had the best diet and health in mid-Victorian Britain, a new report has revealed. The healthiest regions, measured by low mortality rates, were often the most isolated. In those areas, people would have consumed plenty of locally-produced potatoes, whole grains, vegetables, fish and milk. There were also fewer deaths there from pulmonary tuberculosis. This suggests people had better diets, the researchers writing in JRSM Open suggest. They found the most nutritious diets were enjoyed in isolated, rural areas of England, the mainland and islands of Scotland and the west of Ireland – which was at that time part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Jeff Sessions: US prosecutors won’t take on small-time marijuana cases Federal prosecutors won’t take on small-time marijuana cases, despite the Justice Department’s decision to lift an Obama-era policy that discouraged U.S. authorities from cracking down on the pot trade in states where the drug is legal, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Saturday. Federal law enforcement lacks the resources to take on “routine cases” and will continue to focus on drug gangs and larger conspiracies, Sessions said. The comments come after the Trump administration in January threw the burgeoning marijuana legalization movement into uncertainty by reversing the largely hands-off approach that prevailed during the Obama administration, saying federal prosecutors should instead handle marijuana cases however they see fit.
Stop Blaming Jeff Sessions for America’s Anti-Pot Drug Policy Ever since Jeff Sessions was
rumored to become President Trump’s pick to serve as Attorney General of the United States back in November 2016, the cannabis advocacy community has been fixated on how the former Alabama Senator is public enemy number one in the realm of cannabis reform. But while it is true that Sessions is no friend to marijuana, legal or otherwise, he is not the true nemesis to reasonable cannabis policy — Congress is. The cannabis industry seems to have forgotten that Congress is king, and it is has allowedAttorney General Sessions to wage his psychological war on legal marijuana. The federal lawmakers, who are supposed to be looking after the interests of the people, have had every opportunity to approve legislation that would bring marijuana prohibition to a screeching halt. But the issue continues to be ignored by most who sit on Capitol Hill. With the exception of Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher, Earl Blumenauer and a handful of others, most lawmakers are still not ready to get onboard with legalization.
Judge Rules Texas Father Can Give Autistic Child Medical Marijuana A Texas judge ruled that a father is still qualified to care for his disabled teenager after he was reported to Child Protective Services for allowing her to use a cannabis vapor to treat her severe autism. Seven years ago, a neighbor pitched the Texas father, Mark Zartler, on the idea of using medical marijuana to treat his daughter. Born three months premature, Zartler’s now-18-year-old daughter Kara was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and severe autism. According to the Dallas Morning News, things really took a turn for the worst when Kara turned 4 years old and began to suffer from fits of self-abuse. She was hitting herself so hard in the face she broke bones. At one point, her school recorded her hitting herself 3,000 times in one day.
