FDA chief: Federal government might step in if states don’t change lax vaccine laws The head of the US Food and Drug Administration says that if states don’t require more schoolchildren to get vaccinated, the federal government might have to step in. Nearly all states allow children to attend school even if their parents opt out of vaccines. These vaccine exemptions are especially popular in Washington state, where a measles outbreak started last month that has now sickened at least 67 people in four states. And New York has been working to contain its largest outbreak in decades, which began in October and has sickened more than 200 people. “Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they’re creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications,” FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Tuesday in an interview with CNN. If “certain states continue down the path that they’re on, I think they’re going to force the hand of the federal health agencies,” he added.
Question of The Day!
Shane here, Hello everyone hi ho silver, love all of you brothers and sisters on here with us. Super D and Robert this show rocks the docs, keep rockin love you guys. Guest speakers are brilliant as well. Now for a question, I was curious about colloidal silver ions and them being transformed into the gut to make silver chloride? Or does the ions largely get bond to metalloproteins and carried throughout the body? The reason I wanted to know is there’s so much bad information about silver becoming silver chloride and becoming more useless, I know from you and my personal experience that silver works miraculously well but wanted to clear the air.
Thank you all, God bless.
Addicted to fear, the FDA is hurtling toward a historic mistake Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is threatening “unprecedented” action against America’s most popular tool to quit smoking. Cheered on by a cacophony of moral entrepreneurs, an increasingly hysterical FDA is lunging towards policies that will cripple the e-cigarette industry, which is now the biggest challenger to traditional cigarettes. The trigger for Gottlieb’s ire is recently released data from the 2018 National Youth Tobacco Survey showing a surge in teen vaping. The percentage of high school students who vaped at least once in the past 30-days jumped from 11.7 percent in 2017 to 20.8 percent in 2018. Gottlieb fears kids who start vaping nicotine will become addicted, altering their brain development priming them for future, more dangerous addictions and that e-cigarettes may act as a gateway to smoking.
Polio: Vaccinated British man shed virus for 30 years A British man who was vaccinated against polio has been producing the virus for nearly 30 years. He had an immune disorder that mean the weakened polio virus used to vaccinate him in childhood survived in his body. Over time it has mutated into a form of the virus that can cause paralysis and he had no idea the jab had not worked. Polio is only endemic in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria although Nigeria has now gone more than a year without a case. The discovery was made by a team from the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire. They now warn that similar cases could trigger new outbreaks and hamper efforts to eradicate the disease. They wrote in the journal PLOS Pathogens: “While maintaining high immunisation coverage will likely confer protection against paralytic disease caused by these viruses, significant changes in immunisation strategies might be required to effectively stop their occurrence and potential widespread transmission.”
How to Grow Hemp “Sooner or later, somebody is going to make a joke about you getting high,” says Brennan Gilkison, a 42-year-old hemp farmer in central Kentucky who has no interest in getting high. For centuries, American farmers grew hemp for fiber, oil and many other uses. George Washington cultivated it at Mount Vernon to mend fishing nets. Gilkison’s crop goes into products containing cannabidiol, or CBD. People still titter. Practice your explainer, which should go something like this: Marijuana and hemp are varieties of the same species of cannabis plant, but hemp contains less than 0.3 percent of the mind-altering tetrahydrocannabinols, or THC, and will not get you high. “You become an educator,” he says. (Third graders visit his farm on field trips.) Don’t sow any seeds until you’ve researched state and federal regulations. The 2018 Farm Bill contained provisions legalizing hemp production, but you still need a license to grow it. Plant in an inconspicuous location. Gilkison knows a farmer who lost much of his crop to thieves who, he suspects, were selling his hemp buds mixed with marijuana. “If you want something that’s going to yield good, put it on good ground,” he says. He prefers deep, humus-rich soil. Hemp seeds contain sex chromosomes that produce male and female plants. For CBD, you’ll want to keep only the more robust females. Either weed out the male seedlings or plant female-only clones.
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
FBI plotting to keep DNA of ENTIRE population on file to create ‘nation of suspects’ President Donald Trump has signed the Rapid DNA Act into law which means the police can routinely take DNA samples from people who are arrested but not yet convicted of a crime. The law, which was signed in 2017 and comes into effect this year, will require several states to connect Rapid DNA machines to Codis – the national DNA database controlled by the FBI. These machines, which are portable and about the same size as a desktop printer, are expected to become as routine a process as taking fingerprints. But John W. Whitehead from The Rutherford Institute believes it is a sinister development which will make everyone a suspect.
New recommendations say not all women need genetic testing for cancer. Critics say it could cost lives Primary care providers should screen women for personal, family and/or ethnic history of breast, ovarian, tubal or peritoneal cancer to decide who should undergo genetic counseling for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, the US Preventive Services Task Force recommended Tuesday. The mutations increase a woman’s cancer risk. The draft guidance, which is open to a month of public comment, is likely to stir a simmering medical debate over how widely genetic testing should be used to screen women for the BRCA mutations. The Preventive Services Task Force, a volunteer panel of national experts, makes evidence-based recommendations for the primary care community. Task force member Dr. Carol Mangione said most primary care providers take a patient’s personal and family history of cancer into consideration when deciding whether to recommend a genetic test. Most, though, are unlikely to use the available standardized questionnaires to score a woman’s risk for breast, ovarian, tubal and peritoneal cancers, said Mangione, a primary care physician and a professor of medicine and public health at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Inflammation and Memory Loss (PLUS 6 Ways to Protect Your Health) Chronic inflammation beginning in middle age has been linked to cognitive decline in later years, according to a new cohort study. Chronic inflammationcan result from poor diet, stress, environmental toxins, or lingering infections, among other things. In the study of over 12,000 participants, midlife inflammation was correlated with a sharp decline in cognitive decline – especially memory. This is one of the first studies of its kind to look at midlife inflammation and memory rather than inflammation later in life. Dr. Keenan Walker of Johns Hopkins University, one of the authors of the study, elaborates:
While other studies have looked at chronic inflammation and its effects on the brain in older people, our large study investigated chronic inflammation beginning in middle age and showed that it may contribute to cognitive decline in the decades leading up to old age. Overall, the additional change in thinking and memory skills associated with chronic inflammation was modest, but it was greater than what has been seen previously associated with high blood pressure in middle age.”
In Memory of Our Friend, Dr. Ben Johnson It is with great sadness and heaviness of heart that we write this article. Our good friend and champion in holistic medicine, Dr. Ben Johnson, passed away on January 19, 2019. We had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Ben for The Quest for the Cures and A Global Quest and also were honored to have him speak at our 2016 and 2017 live events in Dallas and Orlando. We spent time with Dr. Ben at our home and counted him as one of our “inner circle” friends.This is from a letter received from his staff:
Dr. Ben was a truly exceptional physician. Not only was he an accomplished medical doctor (MD), he was also a skilled osteopathic physician (DO) and doctor of naturopathic medicine (NMD). His extensive medical training and background made him a leader in the field of complementary, integrative, and alternative medicine, as well as an expert in complementary cancer care, thermography, and diagnostic ultrasound. In addition to his long medical career, Dr. Ben served in the armed forces during the Vietnam War, and was a flight surgeon in the Army Reserve for many years. He was also a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner for the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) for twelve years.
When he was not caring for his patients, Dr. Ben devoted much of his time helping to educate the public at large about the many effective, non-drug-based healing approaches he championed. He was a featured speaker at health conferences and seminars around the world, profiled many times in the annual The Truth About Cancer series, and was the only physician to be featured in the feature film documentary The Secret. He was also the author of a number of important health books, including Healing Waters, The Secret Of Health: Breast Wisdom, and No Ma’amograms!
What most people do not know about Dr. Ben is the full extent of his caring for his patients. There were many times when he provided treatments while bearing the full cost out of his own pocket, knowing that some of his patients were unable to pay him for his services. “That doesn’t matter,” he would always say. “They need my help.” And he gave it freely.”
Dr. Ben Johnson was a great man, and he will be greatly missed.
We will see you again, Dr. Ben.
