Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is resigning Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is leaving his post as the agency wages pitched battles against teen smoking and the opioid crisis, and tackles complex new rules to regulate some cannabis products. Gottlieb, who’s credited with leading the FDA’s charge against underaged vaping, is resigning to spend more time with his family, people close to the regulator said Tuesday. He tendered his resignation to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar in a letter Tuesday. President Donald Trump commended Gottlieb’s work at the agency, saying he’s done an “absolutely terrific job.” “Scott has helped us to lower drug prices, get a record number of generic drugs approved and onto the market, and so many other things. He and his talents will be greatly missed!” Trump said in a Tweet.
Senate panel warns of dangers of anti-vaccine movement A Senate panel warned lawmakers Tuesday about the dangers of false information about vaccines and called for a national campaign, similar to the one against smoking, to counter the public health threat posed by anti-vaccine groups. Virtually all the witnesses and members of the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, which held the hearing, endorsed the safety and importance of vaccines. But one senator, Rand Paul, (R-Ky.), struck a defiant note. Even though Paul said he and his children had been vaccinated because the benefits greatly outweigh the risks, he asked whether it was appropriate for the government to require people to be vaccinated against certain diseases. “I do not favor giving up on liberty for a false sense of security,” he said, prompting applause from the anti-vaccine activists in the hearing room.

Hospitals withdraw surgical device over aluminium exposure fears Several hospitals have withdrawn a widely used surgical device over fears that it could expose patients to dangerous levels of aluminium, the Guardian has learned. The device, called enFlow, is used to warm fluids to body temperature before they are infused into patients during surgery. But fluids passed through the device during tests were found to contain hundreds of times the recommended safe limit of aluminium. The Royal Manchester children’s hospital and Salford Royal are understood to have suspended the use of the device last week after concerns that premature babies and young children could be at risk of neurological damage if exposed to such high levels of the metal. The device is understood to be used in many hospitals around the UK.
You’re being poisoned with ALUMINUM… but silicon-rich foods and enhanced water can help your bodyeliminate it quickly Aluminum is the most abundant metal found in the earth’s crust, though it is always found in combination with other elements such as oxygen or silicon. As a metal, it is used in a variety of common goods such as cans and cookware. But aluminum compounds often find themselves in a variety of other applications, such as water treatment, antacids, antiperspirants, cosmetics, buffered aspirin and a number of food additives. Aluminum salts are also used in a number of vaccines as adjuvants, which supposedly serve to help provoke the immune system. Every day, we are all exposed to aluminum through the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and even from the ground beneath our feet. According to the CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the average adult in the United States eats about 7 to 9 milligrams of aluminum every day in their food alone. The ATSDR also notes that both adults and children can be exposed to aluminum via vaccination. Aluminum is omnipresent in our world, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe.
Nutritional supplements cannot prevent depression, research shows A daily intake of nutritional supplements won’t help stave off the onset of depression, a new study has revealed. Instead, regular lifestyle coaching to help people improve their diets and eating behavior may provide a more effective method for people to prevent major depressive disorder. The study is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) on Tuesday, March 5th 2019. A team of international researchers, including Professor Ed Watkins from the University of Exeter, has conducted a pivotal new study into whether nutritional supplements available in the High Street can play a role in preventing clinical depression. Experiencing depression often goes hand in hand with being overweight.
Facebook fake news ‘war room’ should target anti-vaxxers Myth-busting operatives in Facebook’s misinformation “war room” should be monitoring harmful public health messages as well as fake news, a leading vaccine expert has said. Large measles outbreaks in Europe and the United States have put the issue of vaccine hesitancy at the top of the agenda, with growing concern over the role that “anti-vaxxers” play on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Facebook has said that it is “exploring additional measures to best combat the problem”. In an interview with The Telegraph, Dr Seth Berkley, chief executive of Gavi, an organisation that provides vaccines to the world’s poorest countries, said that distrust of vaccines was a growing problem, with social media amplifying and spreading anti-vaccine messages “at the speed of light”.
Children’s Health Defense Sends Letters to Facebook, Amazon and Google On February 14, 2019 Congressman Adam Schiff sent a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, Chairman and CEO of Facebook, encouraging him to take steps to prevent vaccine “misinformation” and advertising from appearing on Facebook. He has since also written similar letters to Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Jeffrey Bezos, CEO of Amazon. Children’s Health Defense believes it is entirely inappropriate for elected government officials to be instructing private companies to censor criticism of entire categories of pharmaceutical products. This is particularly disturbing given the outsized dependence of both political classes and media outlets on pharmaceutical industry contributions and advertising revenue.
Scientist Discovers How To Brew Perfect Shot Of Espresso It may be a bit unorthodox to mix coffee with chemistry, but by doing just that, a group of scientists claim they’ve figured out how to consistently pour the best shots of espresso possible. “One day you might have a good cup of coffee and the next day you might not. From a scientific perspective, it has always puzzled me why we couldn’t do the same thing twice,” says lead researcher Dr. Christopher H. Hendon, in a release by the American Chemical Society. “My research looks at every variable that goes into making espresso coffee, from grinding and packing the ground coffee, to water pressure and mineral chemistry.”
