Last year’s influenza vaccine also contained the same H3N2 strain as this year’s vaccine (A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus). Many people would have developed long term IgE mediated sensitization to the H3N2 viral proteins due to last year’s vaccine [1–4]. Those who received the Flublok vaccine can be expected to have an even stronger IgE response due to its 3X viral protein content [5,4]. This year’s vaccine H3N2 proteins would have been neutralized by these IgE antibodies. Thus resulting in the observed low vaccine efficacy.  Continue reading
… why on Earth would you use chemicals to fight it?
Americans are scared to death of cancer, and righteously so. Mutated cells that multiply uncontrollably can take over organs, including the most complex organ in the body, the brain. Nearly half of all Americans will get some form of cancer in their lifetime, and approximately half of those victims will die from it. Or will they? What if you found out today that many people who “die” from cancer die from the treatments given to them by medical doctors and oncologists, and from the continued consumption of more chemicals after those very same patients are diagnosed, operated on, treated with radiation, and prescribed chemotherapy? Are you on “the drip” right now? Let’s have an intelligent discussion and get to the root of this massive pandemic-style problem. Continue reading
Once in the hands of medical professionals, you’re in better hands…right? Not necessarily. Be sure to educate yourself before you get too cozy.
A hospital isn’t somewhere you typically want to go, but if you’re going to be there, it’s best to be in the know. In the know about what, though? The fallibility of hospitals and everyone within them.
You may have already had this realization, particularly if you’re around the age when the peers you went to high school with have started to become doctors and nurses—but medical professionals are human beings, not gods, and they do make mistakes. Sometimes big ones. Hospitals, of course, won’t go out of their way to advertise this fact to you, a patient. Read on for eight secrets hospitals aren’t telling you, but that you should nevertheless be aware of. Continue reading
Scientists link the plastics chemical to the condition
Health experts have been digging through the data trying to figure out why so many children these days are suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, and they just may have stumbled upon one of the biggest culprits: the plastics chemical bisphenol-A (BPA).
New research published in the journal Environment International highlights the fact that BPA, like other chemicals used in plastics, is an endocrine disruptor, meaning it interferes with hormone production and balance. Continue reading
The only reason why chemotherapy is still used in current times is because it is a huge profit maker. Lives are not as important as money when it comes to the Big Pharma.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death here in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one of every four deaths is caused by cancer. In just 2014 alone 591,686 people died of cancer. Continue reading
… and no, this is not a joke nor something to laugh at.
“New dietary ingredients” are the government’s code phrase for supplements, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to prohibit your access to all-natural, health-supporting herbs and food ingredients which have been used as medicine for centuries.
These “new dietary ingredients” aren’t new, despite the FDA’s lingo. They’ve been tested over time by award-winning chemists, doctors, indigenous healers, and lay people alike. So, why is the FDA trying to regulate the supplement industry with such renewed vigor? Continue reading
A study from The Journal of the American Medical Association has exposed safety issues occurring in over 30% of FDA-approved drugs between 2001 and 2010.
Close to one-third of drugs approved by the FDA are found to have safety problems, according to a research report from The Journal of the American Medical Association.
JAMA’s report stated that these safety issues, known as “postmarket safety events,” are “common after FDA approval, highlighting the importance of continuous monitoring of the safety of novel therapeutics throughout their life cycle.” Continue reading
Scientists calculate the EXACT risk of having a heart attack or stroke if you take ibuprofen or four other popular tablets…
The heart dangers of ibuprofen, celecoxib, mefenamic acid, diclofenac and naproxen – taken by millions worldwide to dampen pain – have been assessed.
Taiwanese experts have concluded that the five different tablets could all affect the heart within four weeks, but some are more dangerous than others. They assessed the odds of a major cardiovascular event for each of the popular painkillers, using data from 56,00 adults with hypertension – high blood pressure. Continue reading
