She Blinded Me With Science! (Tried…)
How Bad Is the Government’s Science? Half the results published in peer-reviewed scientific journals are probably wrong. John Ioannidis, now a professor of medicine at Stanford, made headlines with that claim in 2005. Since then, researchers have confirmed his skepticism by trying—and often failing—to reproduce many influential journal articles. Slowly, scientists are internalizing the lessons of this irreproducibility crisis. But what about government, which has been making policy for generations without confirming that the science behind it is valid? The biggest newsmakers in the crisis have involved psychology. Consider three findings: Striking a “power pose” can improve a person’s hormone balance and increase tolerance for risk. Invoking a negative stereotype, such as by telling black test-takers that an exam measures intelligence, can measurably degrade performance. Playing a sorting game that involves quickly pairing faces (black or white) with bad and good words (“happy” or “death”) can reveal “implicit bias” and predict discrimination.
Californians: How Fast Can You Run? (without breathing)
California has eight of 10 most polluted U.S. cities Forget the Golden State. California should be called the Smoggy State. Eight of the USA’s 10 most-polluted cities, in terms of ozone pollution, are in California, according to the American Lung Association‘s annual “State of the Air” report, released Wednesday. The Los Angeles/Long Beach area took the dubious distinction of being the nation’s most ozone-polluted city as it has for nearly the entire 19-year history of the report. Overall, the report said about 133 million Americans — more than four of 10 — live with unhealthful levels of air pollution, placing them at risk for premature death and other serious health effects such as lung cancer, asthma attacks, cardiovascular damage and developmental and reproductive harm.
What’s With All The Diverticulitis?
HHS secretary back in hospital for bowel condition A spokeswoman says U.S. health secretary Alex Azar is back in the hospital for additional treatment and observation. He’s been diagnosed with a painful bowel condition called diverticulitis. Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Caitlin Oakley says Azar “remains fully engaged with the responsibilities of his job” and is in regular contact with his leadership team. Azar has been putting the finishing touches on a package of measures to reduce prescription drug costs, expected to be announced within weeks. Diverticulitis is an inflammation or infection of small pouches that bulge outward through the colon. Such pouches — called diverticula — are common among older adults. They often don’t produce any symptoms unless they become inflamed or infected. Azar is 50.
What to know about diverticulitis, after Sen. John McCain’s surgery On Monday, the office of Senator John McCain released a statement saying he was admitted to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona and underwent surgery for diverticulitis. The condition is very common in the United States and has many variations and treatment options, depending on the individual situation. The statement from McCain’s medical team does not elaborate on the circumstances that led his physicians to recommend surgery, how it was performed or whether it was an emergency situation. The treatment may be simple and uncomplicated, requiring 10 to 14 days of oral antibiotics, or it may require an extremely complex surgery with extensive rehabilitation.
Since We’re Talking About The Gut….
We just got more new evidence that Parkinson’s starts in the gut – not the brain Scientists have found more new evidence that Parkinson’s could start in the gut before spreading to the brain, observing lower rates of the disease in patients who had undergone a procedure called a truncal vagotomy. The operation removes sections of the vagus nerve – which links the digestive tract with the brain – and over the course of a five-year study, patients who had this link completely removed were 40 percent less likely to develop Parkinson’s than those who hadn’t. According to a team led by Bojing Liu from the Karolinska Instituet in Sweden, that’s a significant difference, and it backs up earlier work linking the development of the brain disease to something happening inside our bellies.
Hey Doc – Did You Forget Where That Just Was?
Safety Alerts for Human Medical Products > 24-Hour Multi-Patient Use Endoscope Connectors: Letter to HealthCare Providers and Healthcare Facilities – Risk of Cross-Contamination The FDA is alerting health care providers and facilities about the risk of cross-contamination with certain connectors that are used in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Endoscope connectors that are labeled for use with multiple patients over the course of 24 hours without reprocessing are known as 24-hour multi-patient use endoscope connectors. To date, the FDA has not received acceptable testing to demonstrate the safe use of these products, and recommends against their use. Endoscope connectors are small accessories used to connect the auxiliary water channel of flexible gastrointestinal endoscopes to a water source and irrigation tubing. To mitigate the risk of cross-contamination and possible infection between patients, the FDA recommends the use of connectors with features that prevent patient fluids from flowing backwards into the endoscope (backflow prevention features). These connectors may be either single-use connectors that are discarded after each patient, or reusable connectors that are reprocessed according to their instructions for use prior to each patient.
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?
Syria: Hospital Workers Say There Was No Poisoning Trump based his belief that there was a gas attack in Syria on staged photos of dead children, and a viral video showing children being showered with water in a hospital after the report of a chemical attack. Two medics from the hospital reported that when they were treating patients for smoke inhalation from nearby bombing, unidentified strangers came into the room and shouted that the event was a chemical attack, which spooked the patients into pouring water on the children. The strangers filmed the reaction. The hospital medics reported that there were no chemical attack victims.
Run-ins with Carfentanil: The opioid 5,000 times more potent than heroin On a snowy morning last month in New Hampshire, an officer with the Manchester Police Department advised workers in a hotel lobby on what to do if they find opioids in guests’ rooms. Of particular concern was Carfentanil, a synthetic opioid that’s 5,000 times more powerful than heroin and 100 times more potent than its derivative, fentanyl, which is lethal on its own and accounts for a surge in fatal overdoses nationwide. Carfentanil — it’s used to tranquilize elephants — is deadly to humans at 0.02 milligrams, an amount akin to a speck of dust. Therein lies the added danger: the substance is difficult to see, sometimes resulting in accidental exposure that could be harmful to anyone who runs across it.
The Painful Truth About Last Year’s Failed Flu Vaccine Last year, the well-propagandized talking heads on TV and radio repeated over and over again how important it was to be fully vaccinated with the newest untried and unproven-for-effectiveness influenza vaccine, whose ingredients had been chosen 6 months earlier (in the spring of 2017) by industry “experts” who were forced to guess which 3 or 4 influenza viruses from the southern hemisphere (out of hundreds of potential viruses) that were most likely to be circulating in the northern hemisphere by the next “flu season”, ie, the fall of 2017. Six months is the minimum amount of time that it takes multinational vaccine corporations to grow enough of the viruses in fertilized chicken eggs to fulfill the anticipated demand for flu vaccines six months later.
Cancer is a lifestyle disease: 4 in 10 cancers can be entirely avoided Those who think they shouldn’t worry about cancer because they have no family history of the dreaded disease are grossly misinformed. Scientists have found time and again that genes are not the reason people get cancer. A new study shows that lifestyle is a frequent culprit. The research suggests that 2,500 cases of cancer could be prevented weekly if Britons changed their lifestyle by exercising more and losing weight. Cancer Research UK reports that almost 40 percent of cancer cases in the UK is preventable. Smoking, the number one cause of cancer, is now giving way to obesity as the top culprit. This is why experts warn that excess weight can someday be the biggest reason why people get the disease. In fact, Cancer Research UK chief executive Sir Harpal Kumar remarked that in the next decades, obesity can be the new smoking if people don’t watch out.
Bombshell IG report reveals FBI to be corrupt, treasonous and criminal in its outrageous cover-ups ofClinton crimes The Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Dept. of Justice, has released a stunning new report that exposes the criminality and corruption of the FBI. Read the full report at this link. The investigative report concludes that Andrew McCabe — who spearheaded the “deep state” operation to cover up the crimes of Hillary Clinton while falsely accusing President Trump of colluding with “the Russians” — lied under oath and violated FBI Offense Codes 2.5 and 2.6. Labeled “misconduct” in the report, McCabe’s behavior may subject him to criminal indictment.
