Vaccine Boom, Population Bust: Study Queries the Link Between HPV Vaccine and Soaring Infertility A plague is spreading silently across the globe. The young generation in America, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Japan, Australia – in virtually every western country – is afflicted by rapidly increasing rates of infertility. This spring, the United States reported its lowest birth rate in 30 years, despite an economic boom. Finland’s birth rate plummeted to a low not seen in 150 years. Russian President Vladimir Putin recently introduced a string of reforms aimed at stemming the country’s “deep demographic declines.” The government of Denmark introduced an ad campaign to encourage couples to “Do it for Denmark” and conceive on vacations, and Poland produced a campaign urging its citizens to “breed like rabbits.” The “population bomb” we were all endlessly warned about by environmentalists failed to blow, and instead, demographers have been trying to raise the alarm about the population implosioncrisis unfolding across the West — the graying of societies facing an unprecedented aging demographic in which there will be too few young to support the old. Most often, they blame social factors: young women embracing careers instead of motherhood, men shunning marriage and fatherhood, rising consumerism or couples choosing to delay raising a family until the economy settles. But there is another phenomenon that is rarely mentioned – the growing numbers of young people who are not childless by choice but who are incapable of bearing children.
Special Guest – Lisa Wiederlight
Lisa joined SafeMinds in Spring 2015. She has worked in the Executive Office for the President of the United States as a public affairs specialist, secured over $10 million in grants as program manager for the Center for Safe Solution’s Technical Assistance with Grants initiative, and co-founded the Autism-Asperger Association of Calvert County, a parent-led organization offering information, support, and assistance to Southern Maryland families. Lisa graduated magna cum laude as a Dean’s Scholar from the University of Maryland College Park, with a B.A. in government and politics, and earned her master of public policy degree from the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy. A mom with a teenage son with autism, Lisa is a fierce champion of children’s health and well-being, and a tireless advocate for families affected by autism.
SafeMinds advocacy priorities are based on the following guiding principles:
- Autism is a national emergency
- Autism is a treatable, dynamic multi-organ disease process
- Federal research focus on causation must shift from genetics to environment, while accounting for the interplay of genes and the environment, and its effect over time
- Research agenda must be driven by leveraged public-private partnerships
Autism Survey Reveals Shortcomings in Federal Response to Autism Crisis The Federal advisory committee charged with coordinating all U.S. Government efforts on autism is failing to meet the needs of individuals and families affected by the disorder, according to a survey released today by several autism advocacy groups. The survey, primarily of parents and caregivers of individuals with autism, found that the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, or IACC, has failed to make a difference in the lives of people with autism. The autism advocacy groups are asking Congress to replace the IACC with a more effective Office of National Autism Policy Coordination when it considers reauthorizing the Autism CARES Act next year. The 2018 Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) Stakeholder Satisfaction Surveycollected responses from 1,405 autism community members through an online questionnaire. The Reform Autism CARES Coalition (RACC) released the findings to inform Congress of the deficiencies in the Federal response to the autism crisis. The RACC is comprised of national autism advocacy groups Autism Action Network, SafeMinds, and the Thinking Mom’s Revolution (TMR). According to its website, the IACC “is a Federal advisory committee that coordinates Federal efforts and provides advice to the Secretary of Health and Human Services on issues related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD).” The IACC was originally established under the Children’s Health Act of 2000.
‘Santa? That’s messed up!’ Backlash on Twitter over lessons in ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ It’s a staple every year in many homes as the longest-running holiday special in television history: “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” In it, Rudolph is booted out of the reindeer games over his ‘blinkin’ beacon.’ He teams up with Hermey the Elf, also a misfit, along with Yukon Cornelius and even the Abominable Snow Monster heading to the Island of Misfit Toys and back. He eventually saves Christmas thanks to his big red nose. The moral of the story? What makes us different also makes us special. But right after the movie aired Tuesday night, Twitter users were quick to pick it apart, saying the story’s moments and lessons are actually pretty disturbing and sad.
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?
New Research Highlights Connection Between Sugar and Cancer A study published last week in the journal Cancer Research looked at the connection between sugar and cancer. The researchers found that reducing the amount of glucose available to cancer cells could be key for effective treatment. Cancer cells require lots of glucose to survive and must metabolize it quickly to generate energy. The researchers evaluated the potential applications of limiting the supply of glucose and restricting the ability of cancer cells to metabolize sugar. It’s important to note that cancer cells are unique in the way that they utilize sugars. Most cells use a process called oxidative phosphorylation to metabolize energy. In the 1950s, a scientist name Otto Warburg observed that cancer cells use a different process to metabolize sugars. This is known as the Warburg effect, and is an observation for which the scientist was awarded a Nobel Prize. Due to the unique way in which cancer cells, he noticed that low levels of oxygen were common in cancer cells. But the low presence of oxygen was a result of the way in which those cells metabolized sugars, not the cause of the cancer.
Chemo Brain: New Study Shows Cancer Treatment Causes Accelerated Aging New research published earlier this week has found that cancer patients treated with chemotherapy and radiation often suffered a loss of cognitive function known as chemo brain. Chemo brain is a term used by cancer patients to describe a mental fog experienced during and after chemotherapy and radiation treatments. This fog could be more accurately described as a decline in cognitive function, executive function, memory, attention, and even motor skills. These negative effects can last long after conventional treatments are over, and have been known to cause depression, fatigue, and anxiety. The study, published in the journal Cancer, evaluated 94 women who had been treated for breast cancer in the last 3-6 years. They evaluated not only the women’s cognitive function, but also biological markers linked to aging. They found significant damage to their DNA, especially telomeres. Telomeres are located at the end of DNA strands and protect the chromosomes from fraying or connecting to other chromosomes. There’s also a significant connection between telomeres and cellular aging. As cells naturally divide, the telomeres become shorter, until the cells are no longer protected and die… This is what we call aging. The shorter your telomeres, the more aging your cells experience.
Question of The Day!
Hi there, I just found out that one of my cell group member’s father was diagnosed with lung cancer and only have days or weeks to live. Would you recommend Colloidal Silver to be nebulized for him as a last attempt for survival? If so, at what dosage and frequency? 3x daily?
Trump’s core supporters are dying younger White, rural males saw another drop in life expectancy last year, drawing attention to a key demographic that helped deliver an unexpected victory for President Trump in 2016. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published the latest trove of its data about life expectancy on Thursday, finding that, for the country as a whole, it dropped from 78.7 years in 2016 to 78.6 years in 2017, the first year Trump was in office. The report marked the third year in a row that life expectancy has failed to rise, falling by 0.3 years since 2014. Though small, the trend is unusual for a developed nation where advances in public health and medicine otherwise lead to longer lifespans. The data also drew attention because the cause of the drop in life expectancy: Drug overdoses and suicides, primarily. A study conducted by Princeton economists and spouses Anne Case and Angus Deaton made headlines in 2015 when it showed mortality for whites was rising, driven by drug and alcohol overdoses, suicide, chronic liver disease, and cirrhosis. Unlike the data released by the CDC, that research included information about educational attainment, finding that deaths were highest among people with a high school diploma or less.
Antibiotic may slow or prevent Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, study says A new antibiotic could bring hope to people suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson‘s. After testing the effects of the antibiotic minocycline on older roundworms that had a build-up of α-synuclein and amyloid-β, two proteins associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, researchers saw a decrease in the number of aggregation of the two proteins, according to a new study published Tuesday in eLife. “It would be great if there were a way to enhance proteostasis and extend lifespan and health, by treating older people at the first sign of neurodegenerative symptoms or disease markers such as protein build-up,” Gregory Solis, a graduate student at Scripps Research and lead author of the study, said in a press release. “In this study, we investigated whether minocycline can reduce protein aggregation and extend lifespan in animals that already have impaired proteostasis.” Scientists discovered that minocycline pushes back the ribosome, the protein-producing component of the brain, that exists in the worms and humans. The testing revealed that the amount of minocycline needed to get rid of protein in the worms depended on how much protein the worm produced. The lower the level of production, the lower the dose needed.
