91% of people on Scientology cruise ship immune from measles and ‘free to move Ninety-one percent of passengers and crew aboard a cruise ship belonging to the Church of Scientology that is quarantined off the coast of Curacao are now immune to measles and are free to leave the ship, local health officials say. The Freewinds was quarantined after arriving at St. Lucia on April 30 and a female crew member was placed in isolation aboard the vessel as health officials on the Caribbean island feared more people could be sick. The St. Lucia Department of Health and Wellness said it provided the ship’s doctor with 100 doses of the measles vaccine while it was there. The ship was allowed to return to its home port at the Curacao harbor on May 4, where a team of medical professionals from the Curacao health department interviewed those on board and took blood samples from some. Epidemiologist Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth, who led the team, told reporters on Saturday that 91% of those aboard had been found to be protected against measles.
Germany Moves To Fine Parents Who Don’t Vaccinate Kids German Health Minister Jens Spahn is proposing fines equal to$2800 USD for parents who don’t vaccinate their children. Spahn says the move is part of his mission to “eradicate measles.” Per a CNN report, Spahn says that kindergartner age children should be vaccinated or the non-compliant parents should be fined. As well, he believes non-vaccinated children should be banned from schools and daycares throughout Germany. He says “The goal is to ensure that people are immunized.” Spahn’s proposed bill would also apply to adults who work in schools and healthcare, or other “public institutions.” “We have been having this debate every few months over the past 10, 20 years,” Spahn stated in an interview with television broadcaster ZDF. “Whenever there is an outbreak and children or students have to be kept away from lessons, everyone says we could, we should do something – but not enough happens.” Pending approval, Spahn’s bill will go into effect by 2020. The WHO also issued it’s own warning regarding measles outbreaks. “If outbreak response is not timely and comprehensive, the virus will find its way into more pockets of vulnerable individuals and potentially spread to additional countries within and beyond the region,” it said in a statement. “Every opportunity should be used to vaccinate susceptible children, adolescents, and adults.”
FAIL: 26% Contract Measles Despite 2 or More Measles-Containing Vaccines, New Chinese Study Finds As we reported on previously in our article, “Why is China HavingMeasles Outbreaks When 99% Are Vaccinated?”, China has one of the most vaccination compliant populations in the world. In fact, measles vaccine is mandatory. So why have they had over 700 measles outbreaks from 2009 and 2012 alone? The obvious answer is the measles vaccines are simply not as effective as advertised, and are becoming even less so over time. An important new study published in the highly respected journal Vaccine titled, “Assessing measles vaccine failure in Tianjin, China,” brings back into the foreground the underreported paradox of measles outbreaks in some of the most highly vaccinated populations in the world:
“Despite increasing global measles vaccination coverage, progress toward measles elimination has slowed in recent years. In China, children receive a measles-containing vaccine (MCV) at 8 months, 18– 24 months, and some urban areas offer a third dose at age 4–6 years. However, substantial measles cases in Tianjin, China, occur among individuals who have received multiple MCV doses.”
Your 5G Phone Won’t Hurt You. But Russia Wants You to Think Otherwise The cellphones known as 5G, or fifth generation, represent the vanguard of a wireless era rich in interconnected cars, factories and cities. Whichever nation dominates the new technology will gain a competitive edge for much of this century, according to many analysts. But a television network a few blocks from the White House has been stirring concerns about a hidden flaw. “Just a small one,” a TV reporter told her viewers recently. “It might kill you.” The Russian network RT America aired the segment, titled “A Dangerous ‘Experiment on Humanity,’” in covering what its guest experts call 5G’s dire health threats. U.S. intelligence agencies identified the network as a principal meddler in the 2016 presidential election. Now, it is linking 5G signals to brain cancer, infertility, autism, heart tumors and Alzheimer’s disease — claims that lack scientific support. Yet even as RT America, the cat’s paw of Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, has been doing its best to stoke the fears of American viewers, Mr. Putin, on Feb. 20, ordered the launch of Russian 5G networks in a tone evoking optimism rather than doom.
Question of The Day!
RSB, On today’s show (5/12/19) you mentioned some remedies for appendicitis. Usually when I hear of someone getting their appendix out, they had an acute attack. They are rushed to the hospital and the appendix is removed for fear of rupturing. So, what are the early signs that the appendix is in trouble so one can avoid surgery? I’m assuming when someone suffers an attack, it is too late to use silver and homeopathic remedies. Is that assumption correct or did I make an ass out of u and me? Thanks Robert!

Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
Millennials’ health plummets after the age of 27: Study finds the generation has unprecedented rates of diabetes, depression, and digestive disorders It’s all downhill from 27, new research reveals. At least if you’re a millennial, chronic conditions and diseases start to rear their heads in your late-20s, and from there things continue to deteriorate, according to a new Blue Cross Blue Shield report. Millennials, as a generation, are in overall poorer health than their predecessors, Gen X-ers, with higher rates of depression, hyperactivity, substance misuse, type 2 diabetes and Crohn’s disease, among other chronic conditions. The report authors warn that the healthcare community needs to be aware that millennials are facing growing and perhaps unprecedented health concerns that could cost them years of life and cost the US economy money and productivity.
Chemotherapy demand will rise 50% by 2040, study says Global cancer cases are expected to climb drastically over the next 20 years, leading to a high demand for chemotherapy, a new study says. By 2040, the number of people worldwide who will need chemotherapy to treat cancer could grow to 15 million, according to new research publishedWednesday in the Lancet. That would be a 53 percent increase from 9.8 million in 2018. “The rising global cancer burden is undoubtedly one of the major health crises of today,” Brooke Wilson, a researcher at the University of New South Wales who authored the study, said in a news release. “Strategies are urgently needed to equip the global health workforce to enable safe treatment of current and future patients.” To calculate these numbers, the researchers applied clinical best practices guidelines, cancer stage numbers and other data from the United States and Australia to global cases of pediatric and adult cancer estimates. By 2040, lung, breast and colorectal cancers will account for more than 40 percent of the chemotherapy requirements worldwide, the researchers say.
2018 saw more employed physicians than self-employed In 2018, employed physicians outnumbered self-employed physicians, according to a report from the American Medical Association (AMA). Researchers from the AMA used data from the Physician Practice Benchmark Surveys to identify the practice arrangements of physicians between 2012 and 2018. Information was collected on employment status, practice type, practice size, and practice ownership structure. According to the report, 2018 was the first year that fewer patient care physicians had ownership in their practice than were employees (45.9 versus 47.4 percent). The percent of physicians who were owners dropped from 53.2 in 2012. Younger physicians and women were less likely to be owners. From 2012 to 2018, the percentage of physicians in solo practice decreased from 18.4 to 14.8 percent. Although most physicians still work in small practices, this share has decreased since 2012. In 2018, 54.0 percent of physicians continued to work in practices wholly owned by physicians, although this proportion decreased from 60.1 percent in 2012. The share of physicians working directly for a hospital or in a practice at least partially owned by a hospital increased (from 29.0 to 34.7 percent).
Anger more harmful to health of older adults than sadness Anger may be more harmful to an older person’s physical health than sadness, potentially increasing inflammation, which is associated with such chronic illnesses as heart disease, arthritis and cancer, according to new research published by the American Psychological Association. “As most people age, they simply cannot do the activities they once did, or they may experience the loss of a spouse or a decline in their physical mobility and they can become angry,” said Meaghan A. Barlow, MA, of Concordia University, lead author of the study, which was published in Psychology and Aging. “Our study showed that anger can lead to the development of chronic illnesses, whereas sadness did not.” Barlow and her co-authors examined whether anger and sadness contributed to inflammation, an immune response by the body to perceived threats, such as infection or tissue damage. While inflammation in general helps protect the body and assists in healing, long-lasting inflammation can lead to chronic illnesses in old age, according to the authors.
