This Was Inevitable…
Texas Children’s Hospital nurse fired after posting Houston toddler’s positive measles results on Facebook A Texas Children’s Hospital nurse was fired after posting about a toddler, who tested positive for measles, on an anti-vaccine Facebook page. The hospital sent the following statement regarding the incident: We were made aware that one of our nurses posted protected health information regarding a patient on social media. We take these matters very seriously as the privacy and well-being of our patients is always a top priority. After an internal investigation, this individual is no longer with the organization. Over the weekend, the nurse working at the hospital’s West Campus posted about the child’s condition on a Facebook page titled “Proud Parents of Unvaccinated Children – Texas.” That page appears to have since been taken down.
Silver Wins – Hands Down
Colloidal Silver’s Advantage Over Pharmaceutical Antibiotics Could the use of colloidal silver, a natural antibiotic that has been used for thousands of years, be a key answer to today’s problem of pharmaceutical antibiotic overuse leading to drug-resistant pathogens? The beginning of the end for pharmaceutical antibiotics is blamed on its overuse, both with overly prescribing for humans and overuse with Big Ag and Dairy livestock. This rising problem is known as antibiotic drug resistance. Ironically, the more complex the chemistry of pharmaceutical antibiotics, the easier it is for pathogenic bacteria to figure them out and develop a resistance to them. This has been occurring with almost all pharmaceutical antibiotics. But this phenomena doesn’t exist with natural colloidal silver. Pathogenic bacteria haven’t figured out a way around silver even after centuries of use. Before methods of suspending silver particles in distilled water as colloidal silver, silver coins and containers were used to prevent harmful bacteria from forming in the foods, beverages, and water contained. Antibiotics are prescribed even when patients have viral infections, adding to their overuse. Colloidal silver is not only an antibiotic, it is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. Antiviral pharmaceuticals tend to be ineffective and dangerous with huge side effects or long-term lowered immunity and sub-clinical issues created by upsetting the intestinal microbiome balance.
Special Guest – Josh Hendrix!
Born and raised in the Bluegrass State and a University of Kentucky alumnus, Mr. Hendrix relocated back to Central Kentucky in 2014 on a mission to help rebuild the US hemp industry. Seeing a need to bring farmers, processors, manufacturers and supporters of the industry together, Mr. Hendrix founded the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association that summer and still serves on the Board of Directors. He also became an active member of the Kentucky Hemp Industries Council where he now serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors. In 2015 he created and became President of Hendrix Hemp, a licensed hemp producer that manages hemp cultivation on his family’s, Mayflower Farm, in Mount Sterling, KY. In early 2016 Mr. Hendrix was appointed to the Technical Advisory Council for the National Hemp Association and accepted a role on the Senior Advisory Board of the institutional trading platform for hemp, Seed CX. Currently Mr. Hendrix serves as the Director of Business Development – Domestic Production for CV Sciences, Inc. where he works with numerous universities, farmers, businesses, and organizations to help facilitate the infrastructure necessary to establish a modern domestic supply chain for hemp in the United States.
CHEERS TO ILLINOIS! JEERS TO ALABAMA! The past week brought both good and meh news on the ongoing hemp legalization battle. First the good news: Illinois joined the hemp party as Governor Bruce Rauner signed legislation that legalizes the farming of hemp. Even better, Senate Bill 2298 expands the definition of hemp – which is exempted from drug control — to include “any intermediate or finished product made or derived from industrial hemp.” Accordingly, popular food products such as hemp-derived CBD are now permitted for sale in the Land of Lincoln. Now the meh news: Two Alabama county prosecutors — Colbert County District Attorney Bryce Graham and Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly – announced this week that a “crackdown” of CBD oil is underway in their region of the state. Their rationale? Farmers should ‘smile’ at their livestock to produce better meat Connolly stated “CBD oil is on the list of controlled substances.”
FARM BILL UPDATE The U.S. Hemp Roundtable has engaged Daniel Cameron, an attorney in Frost Brown Todd’s Louisville office, to lead its advocacy efforts through passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Daniel previously served in Washington, D.C. as United States Senator Mitch McConnell’s legal counsel, where he worked on law enforcement issues, telecommunications policy, and hemp-related legislation.
Turn That Frown Upside Down Farmer Brown….
Farmers should ‘smile’ at their livestock to produce better meat Farmers should try to look happy around their livestock to make sure the meat tastes better after slaughter, a new study suggests.Research into goats has revealed for the first time than non-domesticated farmyard animals can recognise human emotions and respond accordingly. A team at Queen Mary University of London used black and white pictures of humans showing them with either a happy of said face, noticing greater interaction among the goats after they had seen the happy faces. While the ability to recognise emotion is already known about in species with a long history of human interaction, such as dogs and horses, the new study provides the first evidence that the trait exists more broadly.
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?
Toddler’s death after leaving immigration facility leads to $40 million legal claim The mother of a toddler from Guatemala who died after leaving a Texas immigration facility wants $40 million for her child’s wrongful death, her lawyers said Tuesday. Mariee Juarez died May 10, six weeks after she was discharged from the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, according to the notice of claim, the first step before a formal lawsuit. Mariee was 19 months old when she went to Dilley on March 5. “Those responsible for providing safe, sanitary conditions and proper medical care failed this little girl, and it caused her to die a painful death,” Mariee’s attorney R. Stanton Jones said Tuesday. “Mariee Juarez entered Dilley a healthy baby girl and 20 days later was discharged a gravely ill child with a life-threatening respiratory infection.”
Does chemotherapy harm ability to function for older women with breast cancer? Older women are at higher risk for developing breast cancer than younger women are—almost half of all breast cancer cases, and most breast cancer deaths, occur in women who are 65 or older. Despite this, we know very little about how breast cancer and its treatments affect older women. In particular, we don’t fully understand how the disease and chemotherapy treatments affect a woman’s ability to function and perform daily activities. For older adults, knowing how chemotherapy may affect you is important, especially if there’s a chance it could affect your ability to live independently. Understanding your risk for such problems would be good information to have when it comes to choosing treatments. To learn more about how breast cancer and its treatments might affect older women‘s abilities to function, a team of researchers designed a study. They published their results in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
On the horizon: An acne vaccine A new study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology reports important steps that have been taken towards the development of an acne vaccine. The investigators demonstrated for the first time that antibodies to a toxin secreted from bacteria in acne vulgaris can reduce inflammation in human acne lesions. “Once validated by a large-scale clinical trial, the potential impact of our findings is huge for the hundreds of millions of individuals suffering from acne vulgaris,” explained lead investigator Chun-Ming Huang, Ph.D., Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Diego. La Jolla, CA, USA, and Department of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering, National Central University, Jhongli, Taiwan. “Current treatment options are often not effective or tolerable for many of the 85 percent of adolescents and more than 40 million adults in the United States who suffer from this multi-factorial cutaneous inflammatory condition. New, safe, and efficient therapies are sorely needed.”
Pot industry wants to see ‘stoner’ stereotype go up in smoke Michelle Janikian, who writes about marijuana for publications like Herb, Playboy and Rolling Stone, says after she tells someone what she does for a living, she usually spends the rest of the conversation “trying to act so friendly and mainstream” so they don’t think she’s stoned. Adam Salcido relates that after he went to work a couple of years ago for a Southern California company that helps organize weed-infused events like Hempfest and Cannabis Cup, he had to reassure his family he wouldn’t turn into a drug addict. Stoner stereotypes die hard. But with a multibillion-dollar industry beginning to flower — marijuana is now legal in some form in 30 states — cannabis advocates are pushing to dispel the idea that people who toke up still live on the couches in their parents’ basements and spend their waking hours eating Cheetos and playing video games.
