White House serves fast food on silver platters for Clemson celebration President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the College Football Playoff National Championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening. Trump said he paid for their meal of “American fast food” because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab. “We went off and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza,” Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. “I think they’d like it better than anything we could give.” Some players “whooped” when they saw the spread, according a pool report. “We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun,” said the president, a fast-food lover himself. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff who work in the White House residence have been furloughed due to the shutdown, “so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods.”
Sen. Schumer curiously links Shingrix shortage to shutdown, but Glaxo says there’s no connection Sen. Chuck Schumer is raising red flags about the shortage of GlaxoSmithKline’s ultrapopular Shingrix vaccine, blaming the government shutdown for making the situation worse. But the fact is, the shortage started before the government shutdown, and is likely to continue long after the government reopens. Because of the shutdown, New Yorkers are “in the dark” about when they might be able to get Shingrix, GSK’s new shingles vaccine that has been flying off pharmacy shelves, Sen. Schumer said, calling on the FDA to declare the now-months-long shortage an “emergency.” GSK says the senator has it wrong. A spokesperson said the company has been working with officials on the shortage and that the cooperation “has not been affected by the current government shutdown.” In fact, two weeks ago, the agency approved a request from the company to expand Shingrix capacity from an existing plant in France, he said.

ARGENTINA’S NEW VACCINE LAW BLUEPRINT FOR AMERICAN REAL ID Colombian law 1626 was introduced in 2013. Bureaucratic language approved by a handful of senators established that HPV vaccination was “free and mandatory.” What followed was widespread injuries to girls who received an HPV shot which was never safety tested against a saline placebo and includes a scientifically problematic and controversial aluminum adjuvant. The authorities and health officials in the country deemed that any and all serious side effects experienced after the HPV vaccine were part of mass hysteria collectively experienced by the teenage girls. A ‘blame the victim’ stance was also implemented by health authorities in Ireland, Denmark, Japan, and other countries whose HPV vaccine rollout triggered massive injuries to teenage girls. Communities, such as Carmen de Bolívar, were torn apart by the injuries as the girls were left to suffer by a callous and complacent Colombian medical community.
HOW WE BECOME UNWILLING PARTICIPANTS IN MEDICAL TRIALS Form history to present day, an argument can be made that drugs and vaccines are a guessing game. The idea of medical practice is just that, a practice. What happens when the drugs and vaccines, being forced upon populations in some cases, aren’t safety tested properly or concerning results are ignored? Going a step further, what happens when it’s known that injury is occurring and it’s allowed to happen? The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis enrolled a total of 600 impoverished, African-American sharecroppers from Macon County, Alabama. 399 of the men had previously contracted syphilis and 201 did not have the disease. The men were told that the study was only going to last six months, but it actually lasted 40 years. The researchers withheld penicillin and information about it from the study participants even after the antibiotic was proven to successfully treat syphilis. In addition, scientists prevented the Alabama men from accessing syphilis treatment programs available to other residents in the area. None of the men were ever told that they had the disease during the study. Rather, the investigators told the Alabama study participants that they were being treated for “bad blood.”
Chocolate is a better cough suppressant than your cough syrup, study says Got a nagging cough? Grab some chocolate. At least that’s what a few English researchers are suggesting. A research group at the University of Hull in Yorkshire, England recently conducted a small study to explore the link between the sweet treat and respiratory health. To do so, they examined 163 patients in Europe with a cough, randomly prescribing them either regular codeine or a chocolate-based medicine called ROCOCO. After analyzing the results, they found that patients on the chocolate-based medication reported a “significant improvement” in their symptoms within two days, compared to those on the regular cough syrup. “We have just seen the results of the largest real-world study of an over-the-counter cough remedy ever undertaken in Europe,” lead author Alyn Morice told the Daily Mail. “This proves that a new medicine which contains cocoa is better than a standard linctus.”
Ten threats to global health in 2019 The world is facing multiple health challenges. These range from outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and diphtheria, increasing reports of drug-resistant pathogens, growing rates of obesity and physical inactivity to the health impacts of environmental pollution and climate change and multiple humanitarian crises. To address these and other threats, 2019 sees the start of the World Health Organization’s new 5-year strategic plan – the 13th General Programme of Work. This plan focuses on a triple billion target: ensuring 1 billion more people benefit from access to universal health coverage, 1 billion more people are protected from health emergencies and 1 billion more people enjoy better health and well-being. Reaching this goal will require addressing the threats to health from a variety of angles. Here are 10 of the many issues that will demand attention from WHO and health partners in 2019.
Fever alters immune cells so they can better reach infections Fever is known to help power up our immune cells, and scientists in Shanghai have new evidence explaining how. They found in mice that fever alters surface proteins on immune cells like lymphocytes to make them better able to travel via blood vessels to reach the site of infection. Their work appears on January 15 in the journal Immunity. “One good thing about fever is that it can promote lymphocyte trafficking to the site of infection, so you will have more immune cells in the infected region that will get rid of the pathogen,” says Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology (SIBCB) Professor and senior author JianFeng Chen. To get to an infection, white blood cells need to adhere to the blood vessel and then transmigrate into the infected tissue or lymph node. During this step, molecules known as integrins are expressed on the surface of lymphocytes. Integrins are cell adhesion molecules that control lymphocyte trafficking during inflammation.
Can fasting help fight cancer? Some research suggests that fasting helps fight cancer by lowering insulin resistance and levels of inflammation. Fasting may also reverse the effects of chronic conditions such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, which are both risk factors for cancer. Also, researchers believe that fasting may make cancer cells more responsive to chemotherapywhile protecting other cells. Fasting may also boost the immune system to help fight cancer that is already present. Fasting refers to not eating at all or consuming very few calories for a certain amount of time. Fasting cycles can last anywhere from 12 hours to 3 weeks. Short and prolonged fasting periods have promising results in cancer treatment and prevention, according to multiple studies. It is currently unclear which fasting schedule produces the best results, however.
Study reveals how fasting can improve overall health and protect against aging-associated diseases In a University of California, Irvine-led study, researchers found evidence that fasting affects circadian clocks in the liver and skeletal muscle, causing them to rewire their metabolism, which can ultimately lead to improved health and protection against aging-associated diseases. The study was published recently in Cell Reports. The circadian clock operates within the body and its organs as intrinsic time-keeping machinery to preserve homeostasis in response to the changing environment. And, while food is known to influence clocks in peripheral tissues, it was unclear, until now, how the lack of food influences clock function and ultimately affects the body. “We discovered fasting influences the circadian clock and fasting-driven cellular responses, which together work to achieve fasting-specific temporal gene regulation,” said lead author Paolo Sassone-Corsi, Donald Bren Professor of Biological Chemistry at UCI’s School of Medicine. “Skeletal muscle, for example, appears to be twice as responsive to fasting as the liver.”
