Natural Health Awakenings: a Season of Change
Anti-extremism software to be used to tackle vaccine disinformation Technology used to counter violent messages online from Islamic State and the far right is being adapted to counter the spread of “anti-vax” conspiracy theories. Moonshot CVE, a company currently working in as many as 28 countries, uses techniques to identify and intervene in the cases of internet users at risk of being radicalised online. Its technology has already been deployed to counter the KKK in the US, Isis and the far right in Europe. Moonshot’s “redirect method”, which involves the use of online advertising targeted at Google and social media users searching for certain extremism-linked keywords, is now being turned to the problem of “vaccine hesitancy”, identified by the World Health Organization as one of the 10 greatest threats to global health this year. Moonshot’s offices, full of spyholes and reinforced doors, sits behind a nondescript door in the East End of London. Data provided by the company to the Guardian on online searches performed in London for far-right memes and references over a recent four-month period shed light on the effectiveness of the tools being deployed.
Following a healthy plant-based diet may lower type 2 diabetes risk People who follow predominantly plant-based diets with greater adherence may have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who follow these diets with lower adherence, according to a new meta-analysis from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The researchers also found that the association was stronger for people whose diets emphasized healthy plant-based foods. The study will be published online July 22, 2019 in JAMA Internal Medicine. “Plant-based dietary patterns are gaining popularity in recent years, so we thought it was crucial to quantify their overall association with diabetes risk, particularly since these diets can vary substantially in terms of their foodcomposition,” said first author Frank Qian, who conducted the research as a masters student in the Department of Nutrition.
Questions of The Day!
Really liked the Chris Barr interview on July 14 with protocols for Lyme disease.
Can you relay his exact protocol as per the instructions?
I tried getting it all but seemed off to me.
Have you ever heard of a.CKD patient getting off of dialysis? Or is transplant the only option?
Prescription Drugs At Home Are Fueling The Addiction Crisis Among Kids And Teens, Warns New Studies A significant part of the drug crisis can be traced back to our homes, where prescription drugs are found and misused by other family members and friends, often adolescents and older teens. That’s one of the main findings from a group of recent studies that collectively sound an alarm that parents, doctors and clinicians should hear and heed. The first study identified sources of prescription drugs commonly abused by high school seniors. The researchers focused on three types of prescription meds—tranquilizers, stimulants and opioids—and tracked their sources and motivations for use across a group of 18,549 students. A second study identified sources of prescription meds misused by nearly 104,000 adolescents ages 12 to 17.
Question of The Day!
Hi Robert and Super Don,
To what extent do coffee enemas cleanse the liver? Can they flush out excess hormones, environmental toxins, etc., ? Thanks!
Autism diagnoses double The rate of young Manitoba children with autism has doubled from 2004 to 2015, which has teachers calling for more resources. “We don’t know the exact reasons for this increase,” said Amani Hamad, a PhD student at the University of Manitoba. “We don’t want people to be worried about these numbers.” Hamad is part of a team of researchers who pulled up data from Manitoba’s health system and compared how children aged 5 and younger had been diagnosed each year with Autism Spectrum Disorder. In 2004, there were 229 Manitoba children under 5 living with ASD, of which 80 had been diagnosed that year. By 2015, there were 578 children of that age who had ASD, of which 232 had been diagnosed that year. Hamad said it’s possible the rate of children with ASD in Manitoba is higher than in the past. Yet the jump in cases could also be caused by better awareness among educators, the public and health professionals, as well as wider criteria for diagnosing ASD.
Vaccine Proponents Receive Death Threats. Again. In 2008, Dr. Paul Offit released a book called “Autism’s False Profits,” which focused on the safety of vaccines and disproved any association with or relationship of vaccine use to the incidence of autism. Dr. Offit is a prolific author and speaker, chief of infectious diseases at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and co-inventor of the rotavirus vaccine, preventing an illness that would kill 600,000 children annually worldwide. But despite his background in academic medicine and vaccine science, and despite the book being well-received by physicians, scientists, and autism researchers, he cancelled any public appearances related to the book. Initially, there was a great deal of push back from anti-vaccination groups and several celebrities such as Jenny McCarthy, giving anecdotal evidence of how vaccines were causing autism, and how anecdotal unproven treatments were reducing signs of autism in their and others’ children. Scientists and science writers must be well-versed in being able to handle such criticism, even sometimes harsh, and even sometimes vindictive with a touch of slandor. In fact, one should not embark in any controversial public endeavor if he or she can’t handle some jabs–be they professional or even personal. But when the death threats started coming, he dismissed his visibility.
