Concerns of Increased Neurological and Autoimmune Events After HPV Vaccines: Large Studies In 2020, a group of Danish scientists conducted a systematic review of the overall benefits and harms of HPV vaccines.Twenty-four eligible randomized controlled clinical studies were obtained, with a total of 95,670 participants, mostly women, and 49 months mean weighted follow-up. Almost all controls were given an active comparator vaccine (typically a hepatitis vaccine with a comparable aluminum-based adjuvant). Given that the adjuvant is highly immunogenic by design (it is meant to grab the attention of the immune system), this trial design makes it difficult to detect an excess risk with the HPV vaccines. Without true controls (such as a saline placebo), the real risks of HPV vaccination cannot be accurately assessed. In the vaccine group, 367 cancers were detected, compared to 490 in the comparator group. Younger participants (15 to 29) seemed to benefit more from the vaccine concerning preventing moderate HPV-related intraepithelial neoplasia compared to older participants (ages 21 to 72). Younger participants also had fewer fatal harms. Even though the studies were flawed in their design, at four years post-vaccination, those who had received the HPV vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders: 49 percent, as well as general harms totaling 7 percent.

Question of The Day!
Hey Robert and super D hope your holidays went good.
Just have some questions and concerns. My right eye has been coming out with mucous from my sinuses when I blow it and leaks like a runny nose with clear liquid. I went to the clinic the doctor said it’s most likely a sinus infection. I’ve been Nebulizing silver it feels a bit better, but I don’t know if it’s a deep infection because it still leaks and in the morning my eye is closed shut with gunky substance. At this point should I be really concerned and get the antibiotics, I’m just worried this infection could go further and potentially go to my brain or something else?
Thank you Robert and Super D all the best wishes.
Definitive Evidence of the Gut Microbiome Role in Parkinson’s Disease Parkinson’s disease afflicts more than 10 million people worldwide. In the U.S. alone nearly 90,000 cases are diagnosed annually with an expected rise to 1.2 million by 2030. Parkinson’s is a disease that affects the nervous system and causes uncontrollable body movements including shaking and stiffness and difficulty with balance and coordination. Symptoms gradually increase with age and in later stages can affect brain function, causing dementia-like symptoms and depression. New research published in Nature Communications reveals widespread dysbiosis (disruption to the gut microbiome) in Parkinson’s sufferers and includes details of the specific microscopic species that are driving the imbalance. In many cases, the findings confirm previous animal studies, but also may explain disease-specific mechanisms that weren’t necessarily linked to the microbiome. The metagenomics (study of all genetic material sampled from a community) collected stool of 490 persons with Parkinson’s and 234 neurologically healthy controls.
Remember the fear about flu flare-ups over the holidays? Didn’t happen, says CDC Ahead of the holidays, there was fear in certain medical circles that holiday gatherings among millions and millions of families across America would spark a dangerous surge in respiratory diseases. Now, new U.S. government data suggests that was not the case. On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that visits to doctors’ offices for flu-like illnesses fell for the sixth straight week. “Seasonal influenza activity continues but is declining in most areas,” the CDC wrote on its website. The CDC also said that reports of RSV, a common cause of cold-like symptoms that can be serious for infants and the elderly, are also down. In the fall, when flu and RSV cases surged and caused overloads at pediatric emergency rooms, some doctors feared winter might bring a so-called tripledemic of flu, RSV and COVID-19. They were concerned that holiday gatherings might be the spark. But it apparently did not occur. “Right now, everything continues to decline,” said the CDC’s Lynnette Brammer. She leads the government agency’s tracking of flu in the United States, according to the Associated Press.
Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. hospitalized patients experience harmful events, study finds Nearly 1 in 4 patients who are admitted to hospitals in the U.S. will experience harm, according to a study published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. The stark findings underscore that, despite decades of effort, U.S. hospitals still have a long way to go to improve patient safety, experts say. “These numbers are disappointing, but not shocking,” said lead study author Dr. David Bates, the chief of general medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the medical director of clinical and quality analysis for Mass General Brigham in Boston. “They do show we still have lots of work to do.” The research looked at the medical records of 2,809 patients who were hospitalized in 11 Boston-area hospitals in 2018. The study excluded people who were admitted for observation only or for hospice, rehabilitation, addiction treatment or psychiatric care. Hospital data showed that 663 of the patients — about 24% — experienced at least one event during their stays that negatively affected their health, even temporarily. A total of 222 adverse events were considered preventable, meaning errors resulted in patient harm. That translates to about 7% of the total admissions the researchers analyzed. Twenty-nine people, or 1% of the total of those admitted, experienced serious preventable adverse events that resulted in serious harm. One death was considered preventable.
Beetleburgers could soon reach mass production — helping to feed the world Beetleburgers could soon be helping to feed the world, according to new research. The creepy crawlers’ larvae — better known as mealworms — could act as a meat alternative to alleviate hunger worldwide. The process uses a fraction of the land and water and emits a smaller carbon footprint in comparison of traditional farming. To make this a reality, French biotech company Ynsect is planning a global network of insect farms, including nurseries and slaughterhouses. A pilot plant has already been been set up at Dole in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comte region of France. Unlike the livestock industry, where rearing is typically separate, this entire bug-based operation is under one roof. “We are in full control of the chain of production. That gives us strength in terms of quality, security and safety,” says Benjamin Armenjon, general manager of Ynsect, according to a statement from SWNS. Robot arms and automated conveyor belts transport stacks of red trays in every direction. They are are filled with billions of Tenebrio molitor beetle larvae. The dried critters are more than 50 percent protein and rich in fiber and fats as well.They can be turned into protein powders, shakes, burgers, cereal bars, and even cooking oils at a fraction of the environmental cost of traditional farming. For every one kilogram of protein, Ynsect uses 98 percent less land and emits 40 times less carbon than beef. It also uses 40 times less water than pork production.
