Blowing The Lid Off of CDC Funded “Non-Profits”
Are CDC-Funded Vaccine Nonprofits Sufficiently Independent? Nonprofit organizations are tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) as public charities because they are formed to provide public benefit. The IRS reveals that 35.5% are devoted to human services, 13% to health-related causes, and 11.6% to public and societal benefit. Included among their numbers are many vaccine advocacy groups. Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) is one such nonprofit. It is funded by the CDC, six pharmaceutical corporations (including four of the five industry leaders mentioned above), and various others including federal campaign donors, health plans, hospitals, immunization coalitions, pharmacies, private practices, subscribers, United Way donors, and website contributors.
Kratom Under Attack Again
FDA warns of injury, death with herbal supplement kratom Federal health authorities are warning about reports of injury, addiction and death with a herbal supplement that has been promoted as an alternative to opioid painkillers and other prescription drugs. The supplement, kratom, made from a plant native to Southeast Asia, has gained popularity in the U.S. as a treatment for pain, anxiety and drug dependence. Users have opposed efforts to regulate the plant, saying it could be a safer alternative to opioid pain pills that have caused an epidemic of abuse.
Got High Blood Pressure? How About Now?
Half of US adults have high blood pressure in new guidelines New guidelines lower the threshold for high blood pressure, adding 30 million Americans to those who have the condition, which now plagues nearly half of U.S. adults. High pressure, which for decades has been a top reading of at least 140 or a bottom one of 90, drops to 130 over 80 in advice announced Monday by a dozen medical groups. The change means an additional 14 percent of U.S. adults have the problem, but only 2 percent of these newly added people need medication right away; the rest should try healthier lifestyles, which get much stronger emphasis in the new advice. Poor diets, lack of exercise and other bad habits cause 90 percent of high blood pressure.
Planning On Eating Too Much Turkey?
Stove Top offers stuffing-themed ‘Thanksgiving Dinner Pants’ Stove Top is celebrating Thanksgiving with an unusual product — expanding pants featuring a design inspired by the brand’s stuffing. The company, owned by Kraft Heinz, released a tongue-in-cheek ad for its very-real “Thanksgiving Dinner Pants,” which bear the image of stuffing on their elastic waistbands. The pockets of the pants are also lined with stuffing-printed fabric. The $19.98 pants are designed to stretch to up to twice their normal size to accommodate Thanksgiving over-eaters.
Hour 2 – Special Guest Chris Barr!
Chris is here to help us observe World Diabetes Day 2017 in a way we guarantee you won’t find anywhere in the mainstream media!
Here are some of the news stories we will discuss today:
Word Diabetes Day: 2.1m women die of diabetes yearly About 2.1 million women die every year from diabetes globally, with Nigeria accounting for many of the deaths. The Medical Director, Rainbow Specialist Medical Centre, Lekki, Lagos, Dr. Afoke Isiavwe revealed this yesterday, in a statement ahead of the World Diabetes Day. World Diabetes Day is marked worldwide by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on November 14, every year. The theme for this year is: Women and Diabetes: Our right to a healthy future.
Diabetes And Mental Health: Anger, Burnout, Compulsive Eating And Depression World
Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated annually on November 14 with the aim of increasing awareness of the effects of diabetes and the complications caused by the disease. The number of diabetics in the world stands at 415 million as of 2015. If the epidemic of ‘Diabetes’ were a country, it would come in at third place in terms of population, behind only China and India. But the magnitude of this problem needs no explanation. There is awareness not only of the issue and of the steps being taken to curb the problem by governments, academics, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, payers, digital health stakeholders, industry associations and patient groups. But while the focus is usually on the physical aspects of diabetes and its serious complications, there is less emphasis on the emotional burden and psychological distress that can come with the disease itself.
New Study Shows Antioxidant-Rich Foods Diminish Diabetes Risk Consuming a diet rich in antioxidant foods may help decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published November 9 in Diabetologia. The trial is the first prospective investigation into the link between total antioxidant consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes, say the researchers. “This work complements our current knowledge of the effect of isolated foods and nutrients and provides a more comprehensive view of the relationship between food and type 2 diabetes,” senior author Guy Fagherazzi, PhD, of the University Paris-Sud, Villejuif Cedex, France, said in a press release.
Diabetes of the brain is connected to Alzheimer’s, new study shows There’s growing evidence
that Alzheimer’s disease resembles a new form of diabetes known as type 3. A National Institute of Aging study now shows how high glucose concentrations in brain tissue may result from abnormal glucose metabolism, eventually leading to the dangerous plaques and tangles characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease — the neurodegenerative disease that represents the major cause of dementia. “To the best of our knowledge,” the study says, “this report is the first to measure brain-tissue glucose concentrations and … demonstrate their relationships with both severity of Alzheimer’s disease pathology and the expression of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms,” said the study published Monday in Alzheimer’s & Dementia, a journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.
