Fully Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated — A Summary of the Research The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has repeatedly asked CDC to create studies which explain, “How do child health outcomes compare between fully vaccinated and unvaccinated children?” During a November 2012 Congressional hearing on autism before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Dr. Coleen Boyle, the Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, gave evasive answers to lawmakers pressing her on this point. After considerable badgering, she finally stated, “We have not studied vaccinated versus unvaccinated [children].” That was perjury. Boyle knew that CDC had commissioned an in-house researcher, Thomas Verstraeten to perform vaccinated/unvaccinated study on CDC’s giant Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) in 1999 (I summarize Verstraeten’s secret findings on slide 2).
CDC: US death rates rising for young, middle-aged adults Death rates are on the rise for young and middle-aged American adults, according to a study published July 23 by the CDC and reported by The Wall Street Journal. Among younger adults ages 25-44, the death rate rose 21 percent for whites and blacks and 13 percent for Hispanics between 2012 and 2017. Most died of injuries such as drug overdoses, suicides, homicides and heavy use of alcohol. Among middle-aged adults ages 45-64, death rates rose by 6.9 percent for whites and 4.2 percent for blacks. The Hispanic death rate in this cohort did not change significantly. The analysis further illuminates negative health trends across the U.S., where the opioid epidemic and heart disease are decreasing life expectancy. Death rates have declined overall for the general population, but the decline is slowing. Hispanics have typically had lower death rates than blacks and whites in the U.S., but the opioid epidemic is curbing that trend among younger Hispanics. In contrast, older Hispanics, many of whom are foreign-born, have remained healthier.
Question of The Day!
Have a question about Sovereign Silver. Robert you have said on The Truth About Cancer interview with Ty that you would nebulize Sovereign Silver for Lung Cancer. How much and how often would you do this? I have a friend who is wondering for her father. Thanks! I can send a PM if you would rather I do that.
Study: Millions should stop taking aspirin for heart health Millions of people who take aspirin to prevent a heart attack may need to rethink the pill-popping, Harvard researchers reported Monday. A daily low-dose aspirin is recommended for people who have already had a heart attack or stroke and for those diagnosed with heart disease. But for the otherwise healthy, that advice has been overturned. Guidelines released this year ruled out routine aspirin use for many older adults who don’t already have heart disease — and said it’s only for certain younger people under doctor’s orders. How many people need to get that message? Some 29 million people 40 and older were taking an aspirin a day despite having no known heart disease in 2017, the latest data available, according to a new study from Harvard and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. About 6.6 million of them were doing so on their own — a doctor never recommended it.
LOL! Laugh Tracks Make Corny ‘Dad Jokes’ Funnier, Study Finds Can’t seem to crack a smile whenever dad tells a corny joke? According to a new study out of London, he may want to consider adding a laugh track to his comedy routine. A new study finds that adding canned or authentic laughter to the end of a bad joke actually helps it seem funnier. It’s no wonder that some of those cheesy network sitcoms draw big ratings, especially when filmed in front of a live studio audience. Researchers at the University College of London say that while both canned and authentic laughter helps jokes seem funnier, authentic laughs were even more effective than posed laugh tracks. The study’s authors put together 40 corny “dad jokes” and gave each joke a baseline humor rating between one (not funny at all) and seven (hilarious). Then, a professional comedian recorded each joke and two versions of each joke were created; one including a canned laugh track and another with a short recording of real, spontaneous laughter.
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?
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.
The Anti-Vaxxers Movement and National Security The article reviews the national security implications of the anti-vaccine movement (“Anti-Vaxxers”) in the United States. In addition to reviewing the background and psychology of the Anti-Vaxxers movement, the national security implications of both naturally-occuring pandemics and bioterrorism are considered.
“While the anti-vaxxer movement is not new, a 2019 report issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) named “vaccine hesitancy” one of the top 10 threats to global health (WHO 2019). Vaccine hesitancy is defined as the belief that vaccines are not important, safe or effective. It is not just the United States that is experiencing a surge in measles cases; several western countries including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Italy have experienced recent measles outbreaks. The World Health Organization recently issued a report that estimated there were 6.7 million cases of measles worldwide in 2017, an increase of 30 percent over 2016 numbers. In addition, Washington, Oregon and New York are in the midst of a widespread measles outbreak, with most cases in Washington involving children under 10 who were not vaccinated (Floccus 2019). In April 2019, nearly 700 students and staff were quarantined at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) after possible exposure to a person with measles (Mele 2019).”
Facebook Shutting Down Largest Anti-Vax Group on Its Platform A massive Facebook group dedicated to spreading fear and misinformation related to vaccines is on the verge of being shut down. Stop Mandatory Vaccination administrator Larry Cook announced to the 167,00 group members that the group has violated dozens of community guidelines, and Facebook has had enough. According to a post uploaded by Larry Cook, his group “Stop Mandatory Vaccinations” is about to be shut down. Cook shared a screenshot from Facebook alerting him of the violations of the group. In Spring 2019, Facebook announced changes to its community guidelines related to groups and pages that spread vaccine misinformation. Facebook said that groups that continually shared false or misleading information related to vaccines could be shut down. Additionally, Facebook tasked group administrators with monitoring the content shared in the group. Apparently, Larry Cook’s time as the reigning king of anti-vaccine propaganda may be coming to an end. According to Cook, the group has violated three community standards and has shared 67 False news stories.
Question of The Day!
A week or so ago Ty mentioned in passing that he was using an alternative treatment for either gingivitis or some other mouth related condition. He never said what it was, and I would love to know what he’s doing to address that issue. I was wondering if you could ask him about it next time he is on. Thank you!
Communities Worldwide Move to Ban Glyphosate for Good The use of glyphosate – Bayer’s toxic herbicide – has been the subject of more than 10,000 lawsuits in the United States. The lawsuits claim that the use of glyphosate-based Roundup causes cancer, and plaintiffs have been awarded billions in just the first few cases to go to trial so far. But the use of glyphosate may soon be coming to an end. Several nations and cities have either banned its use or are making moves to do so. Last month, German chancellor Angela Merkel told lawmakers that the use of glyphosate will soon be a thing of the past.
“Things are developing, and we will eventually come to a point where glyphosate isn’t deployed anymore,” she said.
Monsanto, the producers of Roundup and glyphosate-resistant seeds, was acquired last year by Bayer, a German company. The acquisition cost Bayer $63 billion, but since the June 2018 acquisition, the company has lost nearly half of its market value. For the company’s home country to lose faith would deal yet another significant blow.
