California Attacks Dr. Bob Sears
Doctor Punished For Giving Vaccine Exemptions To Children With High Risk Of Vaccine Brain Damage In an alarming decision that could be used to set the standard for doctors who choose not to follow the state’s strict vaccine schedules for infants and toddlers, the Medical Board of California has suspended a pediatrician who claims that he approved a 2-year-old’s vaccine exemption, after the child showed a severe adverse reaction. Dr. Robert Sears has been the subject of controversy ever since the board threatened to revoke his medical license altogether when he was accused of “wrongfully writing” a doctor’s note for a 2-year-old boy that exempted him from required vaccinations, after the boy’s mother told him that previous immunizations made the boy’s body limp, and caused him to lose urinary functions. Because he took the mother’s word and believed her testimony of her son’s condition, Dr. Sears is now under probation for the next 35 months, which means that every decision he makes as a pediatric doctor will be strictly scrutinized by other medical professionals, he must notify all hospital and medical facilities where he practices that he is on probation, and he is not allowed to supervise physician assistants or nurse practitioners.

U.S. Senate Votes To Legalize Hemp After Decades-Long Ban Under Marijuana Prohibition The non-psychoactive cannabis cousin of marijuana would finally become legal to grow in the United States under a bill overwhelmingly approved by the Senate. The wide-ranging agriculture and food policy legislation known as the Farm Bill, passed by a vote of 86 – 11 on Thursday, contains provisions to legalize the cultivation, processing and sale of industrial hemp. The move, championed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), would also make hemp plants eligible for crop insurance. “Consumers across America buy hundreds of millions in retail products every year that contain hemp,” McConnell said in a floor speech on Thursday. “But due to outdated federal regulations that do not sufficiently distinguish this industrial crop from its illicit cousin, American farmers have been mostly unable to meet that demand themselves. It’s left consumers with little choice but to buy imported hemp products from foreign-produced hemp.”
Great news! The Senate Farm Bill just passed – and it includes ALL of the Hemp Farming Act, including the permanent legalization of hemp and products such as hemp-derived CBD.
This is HUGE. But the battle has not yet been won. And we need your help.
A House/Senate conference committee will soon meet to resolve the differences between the Senate Farm Bill and the House Farm Bill, the latter which includes no hemp language. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will be leading the fight to ensure that the conference committee retains the hemp-friendly Senate language before it gets sent back to the House and Senate floors for final passage.
We’ve revised our online portal to make it easy for you to contact both your Senators and your Congressman, to urge them to support the Senate Farm Bill’s hemp provisions.
Please go there NOW and have your voice heard. And as always, please share this portal with your friends, colleagues, customers and social media contacts. Together, we can make permanent hemp legalization a reality.
More Good News on Coconut Oil!
More Research Published Supporting Coconut Oil’s Claim to Heal Alzheimer’s Disease While we have been publishing reports of coconut oil reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurological diseases for several years now, we believe this was the first peer-reviewed study to actually look at some of the mechanisms of how coconut oil benefits Alzheimer’s patients. Now, a second peer-reviewed study has been published here in 2018 looking at the mechanisms of how coconut oil positively affects Alzheimer’s patients. Published in the journal Neurochemical Research, researchers in Japan examined the effects of lauric acid, the most predominant medium chain fatty acid found in coconut oil, on activated microglia in mice. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of lauric acid at about 50% of its composition, and human breast milk comes in a distant second at around 6% lauric acid. The title of the study is Lauric Acid Alleviates Neuroinflammatory Responses by Activated Microglia: Involvement of the GPR40-Dependent Pathway.
Hour 2 – Antibiotics In The News
Antibiotics before birth and in early life can affect long-term health Half of Australian infants have received at least one course of antibiotics by their first birthday. This is one of the highest rates of antibiotic use in the world. Although antibiotics are effective and potentially life-saving for bacterial infections in children, they are often prescribed for viral infections, for which they are ineffective. Unnecessary antibiotics expose individual children to potential side effects, including diarrhoea, vomiting, rashes and allergic reactions. The overuse of antibiotics also increases the risk of bacterial resistance in the wider community. This is when commonly used antibiotics become ineffective against some bacteria, making it difficult, or even impossible, to treat some infections. Researchers are also beginning to realise there may be additional long-term health harms from antibiotic exposure in early life and before birth, including an increased risk of infection, obesity and asthma. At the moment, most bacteria that cause childhood infections in Australia respond well to antibiotics. But this is likely to change, unless we use antibiotics more carefully.
Timing is Key for Bacteria Surviving Antibiotics For bacteria facing a dose of antibiotics, timing might be the key to evading destruction. In a series of experiments, Princeton researchers found that cells that repaired DNA damaged by antibiotics before resuming growth had a much better chance of surviving treatment. When antibiotics hit a population of bacteria, often a small fraction of “persister” cells survive to pose a threat of recurrent infection. Unlike bacteria with genetic resistance to antibiotics, evidence suggests that persisters stay alive in part by stalling cellular processes targeted by the drugs. In a new study, Princeton researchers examined a class of antibiotics that target bacterial DNA. In bacterial populations, some cells repair damaged DNA before resuming growth, and others resume growth before making repairs. The researchers found that those that make repairs before resuming growth generally are the ones that survive as persisters. The research advances a long-term goal to make antibiotic treatment more effective.
Is Medicaid Doing Something Right?
New Medicaid health care plan prescribes healing foods as medicine The relationship between food and health is a strong one, as study after study has illustrated. The wrong foods can make us ill, and eating the right ones can cure some problems better than any medication ever could. When we read about the latest study touting the benefits of a balanced and wholesome diet, the path to good health seems so clear. Yet many people keep eating what they’ve always eaten while taking the pills their doctor prescribes them and wonder why they’re not getting any better. It’s easy to blame the healthcare system in America, and there are a lot of things wrong with it. Finally, however, it looks like some plans are actually heading down the right path in this regard. Instead of lining Big Pharma’s pockets and giving people drugs that will only make them need even more drugs, some health care plans have started offering people healing foods instead of ineffective, toxic pills.
How About A Dose Of Transparency?
U.S. lawmakers want NIH and CDC foundations to say more about donors A key congressional spending panel has fired a shot across the bow of two federally chartered medical foundations, warning that the way they disclose information about donors may not pass muster. It’s the latest controversy involving the traditionally low-profile foundations, which over the past quarter-century have funneled nearly $2 billion to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for research, clinical trials, training, and educational programs. Congress created the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) and the CDC Foundation in the early 1990s to raise private funds to support federal biomedical and health research. It hoped to encourage transparency and prevent potential conflicts of interest by specifying in the law that the foundations had to report “the source and amount of all gifts” they receive, as well as any restrictions on how the donations could be used. But last week, legislators on the House of Representatives appropriations subcommittee that oversees NIH and CDC expressed concern that the foundations may not be following those disclosure rules, which are spelled out in the Public Health Service Act (PHSA). (The FNIH provision is here, the CDC Foundation provision is here.)
The Newest…or Oldest Blockbuster Drug?
The Wonder Drug That’s Free Medicine is expensive. From family physician visits to consultations with specialists to prescription drugs, long life is a major investment. But what if there was a free wonder drug that warded off everything from dementia and high blood pressure to diabetes and osteoporosis? Well, doctors and scientists say there is. It’s exercise. And they’re finding new prescriptions for it every day. “No pill protects us against ill health like exercise does,” writes Andy Coghlan for New Scientist. “A plethora of recent studies shows that exercise protects us from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and depression. It even boosts memory. And it has the potential to prevent more premature deaths than any other single treatment, with none of the side effects of actual medication.” Coghlan goes on to quote Erik Richter, a diabetes researcher at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, who calls exercise a wonder drug. “There’s probably not a single organ in the body that’s unaffected by it,” Richter said.
