Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Doctors decry plans to detain immigrant kids with parents Doctors are speaking out against the Trump administration’s plans to stop separating immigrant families by instead detaining children with their parents. That approach, top pediatricians warned Wednesday, replaces one inhumane policy with another. “It puts these kids at risk for abnormal development,” said Dr. Colleen Kraft, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Kraft, who earlier this month condemned the practice of separating families as “government-sanctioned child abuse,” said Wednesday that detaining kids with their parents can be just as detrimental to their health. “Having them in detention is traumatizing and it’s not a good place for children,” she said. “Children deserve to be with their families in a community-based setting where they can heal.”
Hour 2 – Beware The FDA
FDA Repays Industry by Rushing Risky Drugs to Market Nuplazid, a drug for hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease, failed two clinical trials. In a third trial, under a revised standard for measuring its effect, it showed minimal benefit. Overall, more patients died or had serious side effects on Nuplazid than after receiving no treatment. Patients on Uloric, a gout drug, suffered more heart attacks, strokes and heart failure in two out of three trials than did their counterparts on standard or no medication. Nevertheless, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved both of these drugs — with a deadly aftermath. Uloric’s manufacturer reported last November that patients on the drug were 34 percent more likely to die from heart disease than people taking an alternative gout medication. And since the FDA fast-tracked approval of Nuplazid and it went on the market in 2016 at a price of $24,000 a year, there have been 6,800 reports of adverse events for patients on the drug, including 887 deaths as of this past March 31.
Got Mercury In Your Mouth?
Amalgam fillings may leak mercury after high-strength MRI When amalgam fillings, sometimes referred to as silver fillings, are exposed to ultra-high-strength MRI scans, they can release toxic mercury, according to a new study. While researchers found no effects from the 1.5 Tesla MRI scans, which are lower strength and used commonly, the 7.0 Tesla, or T, version approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in 2017 may have an unforeseen risk for people with amalgam fillings. The findings were published Tuesday in the journal Radiology. The amalgam filling, which includes 50 percent mercury, can cause health problems. The FDA has said amalgam fillings are safe for adults and children older than 6, compared to in Sweeden, Norway, Denmark and Germany, where they have been restricted or forbidden.
Magic or Something Else?
Do You Believe in Magic? I Do The velvety rabbit with big floppy ears and a silver tiara came to me 34 years ago with a name tag that read, “Fairy God Bunny.” That was when I was in my mid-20s and had cancer. For five years I carried this rabbit with me to the hospital for labs, CT scans and X-rays. I was never shy about introducing it to anyone, nor did I feel hypocritical, even though I was a 26-year-old Ph.D. candidate. My friend Cynthia had given me the bunny soon after my testicular cancer diagnosis, reminding me several times that it had “magical powers.” She later boosted those powers by adding a wand trimmed in gold lamé to complement its frilly tutu. That bunny was intended to be my talisman, a magical defender against my cancer. You’d expect me to be skeptical. I’d grown up in an age of science, when facts and data reigned supreme. I’d excelled at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School, famous for its geek curriculum. As a three-time visitor to the nearby 1964 World’s Fair, a paean to new technology, I’d drunk DuPont’s Kool-Aid: Better living through chemistry.
Get Moving People!
Just 23% of US adults get enough exercise, CDC reports About a quarter of US adults meet guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercise in their spare time, according to new data from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics. The US Department of Health and Human Servicesrecommends that people between the ages of 18 and 64 engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity each week, as well as muscle-strengthening activities at least twice a week. The department’s Healthy People 2020 initiative, which kicked off in 2010, had a target goal of 20.1% of adults meeting these guidelines by 2020. The CDC report, published Thursday, reveals that this goal was surpassed; 22.9% meet it. “That being said, we found that even though the average has met and exceeded the objective or the goal, there are differences,” said Tainya Clarke, a health statistician and epidemiologist with the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics and one of the authors of the report. “There are differences at the state level, and there are differences by some sociodemographic factors.”
