Ineffective flu vaccine added to 50,000 extra deaths last winter, ONS says The flu vaccine’s failure to protect against some of the key strains of the infection contributed to more than 50,000 “extra” deaths in England and Wales last winter, according to data from the Office of National Statistics. It was the worst winter on record for more than 40 years, with the 1975-76 season being the last time deaths climbed so high above the expected levels. The NHS was rocked by a record winter crisis in early 2018, with a massive rise in flu cases and sub-zero temperatures triggered by the Beast from the East storm, which added further to death rates. Despite protecting against the potentially serious “Aussie flu“, officials said in January that the vaccine which had been widely used was not effective against some of the more prevalent strains of the virus affecting the UK. The impact on death rates was apparent as early as March, when experts warned the government must “urgently investigate” a spike of 10,000 deaths in the first weeks of 2018.
Only 60 percent of U.S. seniors got flu shots this season, survey says Only about 60 percent of seniors in the U.S. have gotten a flu shot this season, a survey says. Results from the December Health Flu Shot Monitor, released Friday by health insurance company Clover Health compiled flu shot data Nov. 19 to Nov. 29 for people 60 and older. That number is not much better than the 41 percent of seniors who reportedly received flu shots in November’s Flu Shot Monitor, the company reported. Clover says that Medicare Advantage has even talked about the importance for seniors to get flu shots. According to AARP, more than 12,000 people died during last year’s flu season from the illness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that fewer people traditionally get flu shots past November. “In recent years, for example, it’s estimated that between about 70 percent and 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older and between 50 percent and 70 percent of seasonal flu-related hospitalizations have occurred among people in that age group,” the agency said.

A homeopathic guide to healthier kidneys Don’t take your kidneys for granted because they serve an important role in filtering out excess waste from your body, balancing your electrolytes and creating hormones. Surely such vital organs deserve the proper care to keep them healthy and it doesn’t even have to be difficult. Maintaining kidney health is possible with help of various homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine that is based on the principle of using extremely diluted substances typically made from herbs for treating a number of different ailments. Your kidneys can greatly benefit all sorts of homeopathic remedies. There are diuretics to help increase the flow of urine and flush out harmful toxins, bacteria and kidney stones. Demulcents can be used for coating your urinary lining, protecting it against irritants. Other remedies can aid in the detoxification process, boost your immune system or provide antiseptic properties. (Related: 15 herbs that naturally detox your kidneys.)
Harvard professor recommends portion of 6 fries, sparks outrage If the day ever comes when a small order of french fries includes six fries total, the nation would have a collective meltdown. Eric Rimm, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, called the french fry a “weapon of dietary destruction” in a Nov. 29 article in The New York Times. He suggested that if individuals must indulge in these “starch bombs” that can increase the risk of diabetes and obesity, they should limit the portion to six. Let us repeat: Six! Six french fries! History has proven that people get upset about their french fries. One small restaurant in Maine even got violent threats after changing its crinkle-cut fries to regular-shaped ones. Needles to say, Rimm’s public denouncement of the gloriously greasy, hot and crispy snack has sparked a fuselage of comebacks across the Twitterverse. Some tweeters think only a “mad man” could commit to eating such a limited portion.
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:
Trump Lays Groundwork To Ban Mandatory Vaccinations AcrossU.S. President Trump has created a new division within the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights, with the express purpose of banning mandatory vaccinations across the country, and ensuring citizens have a right to choose their own healthcare. With the establishment of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division division on Thursday, Trump has laid the groundwork to dismantle each and every vaccine mandate across the country. Big Pharma’s choke-hold on the nation’s health has been released. If you don’t think this new division at the Health and Human Services Office is a big deal, it’s time to think again. The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division gives many different groups a big tent under which to fight for our constitutional rights. Christians and libertarians, as well as freethinkers and people of other religious faiths, have a common interest in fighting against Big Pharma’s corrupt health establishment.
Why the world is becoming more allergic to food Around the world, children are far more likely than ever before to develop food allergies. Recent inquiries into the deaths of two British teenagers after eating sesame and peanut highlighted the sometimes tragic consequences. In August, a six-year-old girl in Western Australia died as the result of a dairy allergy. The rise in allergies in recent decades has been particularly noticeable in the West. Food allergy now affects about 7% of children in the UK and 9% of those in Australia, for example. Across Europe, 2% of adults have food allergies. Life-threatening reactions can be prompted even by traces of the trigger foods, meaning patients and families live with fear and anxiety. The dietary restrictions which follow can become a burden to social and family lives. While we can’t say for sure why allergy rates are increasing, researchers around the world are working hard to find ways to combat this phenomenon.
Women reluctant to take preventive breast cancer drug, study says Many British women wont take a drug that could prevent the development breast cancer over side effects concerns, a study says. Researchers from the University of Leeds in the UK published the findings Monday in the journal Clinical Breast Cancer. “Women in our study were rightfully considering the potential harms and benefits of using preventive therapy,” Samuel Smith, a researcher at the University of Leeds and lead author of the study, said in a press release. “But some beliefs about the use of medicine were very negative. This appears to be putting some women off tamoxifen, despite its proven ability to help prevent breast cancer in the long term.” Researchers recruited 408 women to participate in the study, finding that 72 percent of the women they studied feared the long-term effects of tamoxifen and 57 percent thought it would cause negative side effects. Further research discovered that almost 30 percent of women believed doctors prescribed excessive amounts of medicines. Nearly 25 percent of the women had bad reactions to prescription drugs.

What would you do for an abdominal aortic aneurysm that you are told requires surgery (6.5 cm in size)? I’m told the only alternative is open surgery repair or a endovascular repair wich is made up an expanded polytetraflouroethylene (ePTFE) with an outer metallic support structure known as a stent.
Both have negatives. The open repair is subject to long recovery and infection and the endovascular repair annual CT Scans. Your input we be appreciated.
