La State Senator Milkovich says vaccines cause Autism During a vote in the Louisiana legislative session, State Senator John Milkovich made some alarming comments that do not line up with scientific evidence regarding vaccines and Autism. Before voting against a bill by State Senator Regina Barrow that would allow adults to have the option to be on an immunization database that only applies to children currently, Senator John Milkovich made this comment. “There is a very contentious scientific debate that’s going on in America and has been for decades and the features of which are becoming more and more public everyday. In which many are saying these vaccinations pose danger. For example when Senator Lambert and I were growing up Autism did not exist. Many of you may know, some of the leading researchers in America say that Autism is a result of vaccination,” said State Senator John Milkovich, La (D) District 38.

The Autism Vaccine In the late 1800s, a new disease arrived in North America from Europe and began to claim the lives of children everywhere. Though most today have never even heard of this illness, it would routinely kill over ten thousand children in a single year—more than the polio might take in an entire decade. After much trial and tribulation, a shot was developed that helped both those already afflicted with the illness, and those who might one day become infected. But the shot was dangerous, and many parents refused it for their children. In 1932, a safer version of the shot was developed, but contained a new ingredient never before tried on humans. Due to aggressive immunization campaigns, children all over the country began to receive this shot. Within a year, a new mental disorder—unknown to even the most knowledgeable child psychologists in the country—began to appear. It affected toddlers, and mostly boys. Children were losing the ability to speak and would take little interest in any other humans—even their parents. The Autism Vaccine chronicles the story of two of these children—one known throughout the world, the other completely unknown until recently—and why modern medicine’s attempts to explain what happened to them have so far come up short.
The Moth in the Iron Lung: A Biography of Polio A fascinating account of the world’s most famous disease—polio— told as you have never heard it before. Epidemics of paralysis began to rage in the early 1900s, seemingly out of nowhere. Doctors, parents, and health officials were at a loss to explain why this formerly unheard of disease began paralyzing so many children—usually starting in their legs, sometimes moving up through their abdomen and arms. For an unfortunate few, it could paralyze the muscles that allowed them to breathe. Why did this disease start to become such a horrible problem during the late 1800s? Why did it affect children more often than adults? Why was it originally called teething paralysis by mothers and their doctors? Why were animals so often paralyzed during the early epidemics when it was later discovered most animals could not become infected? The Moth in the Iron Lung is a fascinating biography of this horrible paralytic disease, where it came from, and why it disappeared in the 1950s. If you’ve never explored the polio story beyond the tales of crippled children and iron lungs, this book will be sure to surprise.
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?
Once Burned, Twice Shy—Why “Anti-Vaxxers” Are Really “Ex-Vaxxers” In the 1920s, Edward Bernays, the so-called “father of public relations,” wrote several influential books outlining the principles of successful propaganda. In his book by that title, Bernays arguedthat “the mind of the people…is made up for it by…those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion” and know how to skillfully supply the public with “inherited prejudices” and “verbal formulas.” Bernays’ comments come to mind in the current climate of hostility and intolerance being directed against individuals pejoratively dubbed by the vaccine lobby as “anti-vaxxers.” The dumbed-down propaganda being plastered across the mainstream media on an almost daily basis would have the public believe that anyone who questions any aspect of vaccination is ignorant, selfish or both. However, there is a glaring flaw with this logic. The incontrovertible fact—which the legislators, regulators, reporters and citizens who are participating in mass tarring and feathering are not honest enough to admit—is that many of the people classified as “anti-vaxxers” are actually “ex-vaxxers” whose dutiful adherence to current vaccine policies led to serious vaccine injury in themselves or a loved one.
NYC to Ban Hot Dogs and Processed Meat to Improve Climate New York City is the first city in the United States to eliminate processed meats. Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion Green New Deal on Monday, April 22, to combat climate change. The plan will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017. “It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan…. Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same,” de Blasio said at an Earth Day event yesterday. By 2030, New York City’s Green New Deal will reduce greenhouse emissions by 30% while also creating new jobs. Additionally, all buildings that are 25,000 square feet or more, of which there are 50,000 citywide, will be required to make efficiency upgrades that lower their energy usage and emissions or they will face steep penalties.
Transgender Teen Gets Court Order Against Father for ‘Misgendering’ Her A transgender teenager last week convinced a Canadian judge to make his dad stop “misgendering” him. In the April 15 protection order, British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Francesca Marzari’s said the father was “harming his child” by refusing to accept his male gender identity. She barred him from continuing to “misgender” or “deadname” the biological girl in public or private. In court documents, the father was identified only as CD, and the 14-year-old child was called AB. “I find that his father’s expressions of rejection of AB’s gender identity, both publicly and privately, constitutes family violence against AB,” Marzari said. “Finally, I find that CD’s conduct in this regard is persistent and unlikely to cease in the absence of a clear order to restrain it.”
5G Faces Global Opposition as Health Concerns Mount In March, we talked about the cities that are fighting against the installation of 5G networks. Since that article, they’ve been joined by dozens more, including the capital city of Belgium. But while many groups are demanding accountability for the health risks the new networks pose, telecom providers are continuing their frenzied push to be the first to roll out 5G. Here’s some of the latest, and what you can do about it. 5G is the latest evolution in wireless technology, and nearly all mobile carriers have been investing heavily to build the new networks. According to Verizon, 5G will provide “about 50 times the throughput of current 4G LTE, latency in the single milliseconds” and will be able to “handle exponentially more Internet-connected devices.” 5G is considered by proponents as a necessary step to handle the increasing number of mobile devices and the internet of things. It is also considered essential for the development of self-driving cars.
