Rockland County threatens measles patients with $2,000-a-day fine After its previous emergency order banning non-vaccinated minors from public places was overturned by a judge, Rockland County officials on Tuesday detailed their next steps in combating a measles outbreak that has sickened 186 people since last October. County Executive Ed Day and Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert announced a Communicable Disease and Exposure Exclusion Order, which mandates that anyone with measles or anyone exposed to the illness avoid public spaces or face a $2,000-a-day fine. They also followed New York City’s lead by requiring students in two zip codes — 10952 and 10977 — to stay home from school if they cannot prove they have received the MMR vaccine or show acquired immunity. However, the school mandate does not apply to those with medical or religious exemptions. “We have seen 33 new cases since we issued our now-nullified state of emergency three weeks ago,” Day said. “In short, we were ahead of this crisis.”
Garden Rebels: 10 Ways To Sow Revolution In Your Back Yard Sometimes I think that the next Revolutionary War will take place in a vegetable garden. Instead of bullets, there will be seeds. Instead of chemical warfare, there will be rainwater, carefully collected from the gutters of the house. Instead of soldiers in body armor and helmets, there will be back yard rebels, with bare feet, cut-off jean shorts, and wide-brimmed hats. Instead of death, there will be life, sustained by a harvest of home-grown produce. Children will be witness to these battles, but instead of being traumatized, they will be happy, grimy, and healthy, as they learn about the miracles that take place in a little plot of land or pot of dirt. Every day, the big industries that run our nation take steps towards food totalitarianism. They do so flying a standard of “sustainability” but what they are actually trying to sustain is NOT our natural resources, but their control.
Question of The Day!
I would like to start nebulizing colloidal silver. Does it have to be nebulized in a ultrasonic nebulizer or can I use a regular jet nebulizer?
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?
Links to Cancer Shown in US Federal Draft Report on Glyphosate Herbicide A draft US federal report has confirmed links between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller, and some forms of cancer. The report could have a damaging impact on Bayer/Monsanto’s attempt to defend the large number of legal cases involving its weedkiller. On April 8, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), which is tied to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is part of the US Department of Health and Human Services, released its long-awaited draft toxicological report on glyphosate. It had been delayed for over three years, allegedly thanks to the efforts of Monsanto and a group of high-ranking officials within the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The ATSDR documented a range of concerns about glyphosate. But most worryingly for Bayer/Monsanto, just like the World Health Organisation’s cancer agency IARC, it identified evidence for a link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This is exactly the outcome that the company feared because it undercuts its narrative that IARC’s concerns about glyphosate’s carcinogenicity can be offset by the EPA’s determination that glyphosate is “not likely” to cause cancer.
FDA Supports Corporate Interests as Monsanto’s Lies are Exposed Last week, three things happened. Bayer, who acquired Monsanto last year for $63 billion, suffered another blow when a French court determined that their weed killer Lasso had caused neurological issues in a farmer. A day later, the company agreed to comply with a court-ordered mediation with a plaintiff who claims that another of its products, Roundup, caused her non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In the midst of all this, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture criticized Vietnam for banning the import of herbicides containing glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. Let’s take a look at the latest in the Bayer/Monsanto story as well as the comments made by the Secretary of Agriculture. The first story comes from France, where a farmer named Paul Francois finally won a lawsuit claiming that Monsanto’s herbicide Lasso had caused his illness. Mr. Francois has been battling the agricultural behemoth for over a decade; the company’s legal team has kept the case trapped in a quagmire of appeals and litigation. A simple farmer, Francois suffered neurological damage in 2004 after accidentally inhaling fumes from the weed killer.
Air Pollution Linked To Measles Incidence, Proving Immune Status Is Vital In Disease Risk A new study published in the journal Environmental Research reveals that exposure to air pollution is significantly associated with measles incidence in China. This is consistent with the view that infection is not solely determined by exposure to a virus particle but also involves the immune status of the subject which depends on various nutritional and environmental factors, including the immunosuppressive function of air pollution. In other words, it’s not just the “germ” alone but the terrain that determines disease. In the new study titled, “Is short-term exposure to ambient fine particles associated with measles incidence in China? A multi-city study,” Chinese researchers examined the relationship between short-term exposure to ambient particles with a diameter of less than ≤2.5µm (i.e. 2.5 microns thick) and measles incidence in China. They noted that rapid economic development has resulted in “severe particulate matter (PM) air pollution.” Their method was to collect data on the daily number of new measles cases and concentrations of ambient particles (≤2.5µm) from 21 cities in China between October 2013 and December 2014 and to analyze data to ascertain the effects at the national scale.
Eating just one slice of bacon a day linked to higher risk of colorectal cancer, says study Eating even a moderate amount of red or processed meat is linked with an increased risk of colorectal (bowel) cancer, according to a new study published Wednesday. People who ate 76 grams of red and processed meat per day — that’s in line with current guidelines and roughly the same as a quarter-pound beef burger –– had a 20% higher chance of developing colorectal cancer compared to others, who ate about 21 grams a day, the equivalent to one slice of ham, according to the research. The study also found that processed meat, like sausages or bacon, posed a bigger risk than red meat, with the risk of colorectal cancer rising 20% with every 25 grams of processed meat (roughly equivalent to a thin slice of bacon) people ate per day, and by 19% with every 50 grams of red meat (a thick slice of roast beef or the edible bit of a lamb chop). “A small amount of processed meat seems to have the same effect as a large amount of red meat,” said professor Tim Key, who co-authored the study and is deputy director at the University of Oxford’s cancer epidemiology unit.
