Infectious Diseases Will Not Wipe Out Humanity

June 19, 2016

fromThe Atlantic

by Amesh AdaljJun 17, 2016

“You’ll tell us when you’re worried, right?”

That was the question posed to me countless times at the height of the 2014 West African Ebola outbreak. As an infectious disease physician, I was interviewed on outlets such as CNN, NPR, and Fox News about the dangers of the virus, and the answer I gave was always the same: “Ebola is a deadly, scary disease, but it is not that contagious. It will not find the U.S. or other industrialized nations hospitable.”

In other words, no, I wasn’t worried—and not because I have a rosy outlook on infectious diseases. I’m well-aware of the damage these diseases are causing around the world: HIV, malaria, tuberculosis; the influenza pandemic that took the world by surprise in 2009; the anti-vaccine movement bumping cases of measles to an all-time post-vaccine-era high; antibiotic-resistant bacteria threatening to collapse the entire structure of modern medicine—all these, like Ebola, are continuously placing an enormous number of lives at risk.

But when people ask me if I’m worried about infectious diseases, they’re often not asking about the threat to human lives; they’re asking about the threat to human life. With each outbreak of a headline-grabbing emerging infectious disease comes a fear of extinction itself. The fear envisions a large proportion of humans succumbing to infection, leaving no survivors or so few that the species can’t be sustained.

I’m not afraid of this apocalyptic scenario, but I do understand the impulse. Worry about the end is a quintessentially human trait. Thankfully, so is our resilience.

After Cigarettes and Alcohol, The Government Plans Sugar Tax

May 22, 2015

Sugar does not make you obese, fat does not make you obese, eating too much makes you obese (image source)

The election may have put a Conservative government in power and consigned the pokenoses and busybodies of Labour and the Lib Dems to the political wilderness, but the bansturbators of the public sector march on, their war against pleasure, laughter, tasty food and anything that might put people at risk of enjoying themselves continuing unabated it seems.

A row flared up in the Department for Health yesterday after a junior minister said snack companies could be forced to pay a “sugar tax” if they continue to sell unhealthy foods. The Telegraph reports that George Freeman, Life Sciences Minister, said he may support such a tax to pay for the cost of treating obesity, blaming sugary drinks and snacks for Britain’s expanding waistline.

He told the Hay Festival: “I don’t think heavy-handed legislation is the way to go.

“But I think that where there is a commercial product which confers costs on all of us as a society, as in sugar, and where we can clearly show that the use of that leads to huge pressures on social costs, then we could be looking at recouping some of that through taxation.

“Companies should know that if you insist on selling those products, we will tax them.”

His comments have placed him at loggerheads with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who previously ruled out such a move, saying that the government would look at alternative ways to get people to eat healthily. Other figures, mostly unelected bureaucrats in the Department for Health, have backed the idea, including chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies and Susan Jebb, chairman of the Food Responsibility Network.

The chairman of campaign group Action on Sugar, Graham MacGregor, backed Freeman’s comments, saying: “We are very much in favour of a sugar tax and we welcome Mr Freeman’s words.

“The Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, can no longer ignore the fact that current nutrition policy whereby the food industry is allowed to police itself is, unsurprisingly, not working. We are delighted that Tesco has agreed that this is exactly the sort of action that we need and all other retailers must follow suit.”

Also speaking at the Hay Festival, Professor Tim Lang of City University London took an even more hard-line approach, saying that snack manufactures should be banned from calling their products “food”.

Any move to introduce such a tax would likely be fiercely opposed by more libertarian Conservative backbenchers who are already smarting after the government pushed plain packaging for cigarettes through parliament before the election.

Once again we see the innately fascist tendencies of people who work in the public sector but never have to put their jobs on the line by seeking re-election. Mars Bars, Crisps and cans of Cola do not make anybody eat them. Most of us can enjoy an occasional chocolate egg but equally can walk right past the sweet snacks or fizzy drinks displays in supermarkets without being tempted. Yet a sugar tax could not be discriminatory, we the responsible people would therefore be punished for our occasional treats while the morbidly obese would continue to get ‘special payment’ on top of their disability benefit to cover the cost of their addiction to pigging out.

NHS Tests And Drugs Do More Harm Than Good

May 13, 2015

What have I been telling you for the last ten years? For too long the NHS has been more about plundering our pockets on behalf of the Big Pharma Corporations that looking after our health.

NHS patients are being given drugs and tests they may not need because, as this blog has frequently reported over the years, GPs and hospitals are ‘incentivized’ to prescribe certain drugs, i.e. paid for the quantity not quality of their treatment, senior doctors have revealed in a new report.

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges said patients should be encouraged to ask if their medical procedures were really necessary, in a bid to halt over-diagnosis and needless treatment of swathes of the population.

In an unprecedented intervention, the medics – who represent all 21 medical royal colleges in the UK – said too many patients were being forced to endure tests and treatments which could do more harm than good.

They said the payments system in the NHS, which means hospitals are paid according to the number of procedures they perform, and GP pay linked to diagnosis and treatment, could act against patients’ interests.

The report said it was time to “wind back the harms of too much medicine” and replace a culture of “more is better” with balanced decision making.

Patients should be encouraged to ask questions such as, ‘Do I really need this test or procedure? What are the risks? Are there simpler safer options? What happens if I do nothing,’ the doctors say.

This news comes as a leading scientist said millions of people should stop taking antidepressants, because their long-term risks outweighed the benefits.

Why Don’t Euronazis Understand "No".

November 28, 2013

The limited vocabulary of those who run the European Union is something I noticed many years ago. Now I may be a more diligent guardian against Euronaziism than most bloggers but I think everybody became aware after the debacle of the Irish referendum on the transfer of sovereign powers from the elected parliament to the unelected paper shufflers and bean counters of Brussels, that when they EU gives us a choice and we choose the wrong option, they just ask us to choose again … and again … and again. (Europe says F U to democracy)

Now the Naziism in Brussels has trickled down from sovereign powers to more mundane matters, for example, who should be making the laws that govern us, or elected Parliaments or American based global corporations of the Big Pharma, Big Ag, Big Food, Big Media or Big War cartels. yes, government by lobbying has arrived.

My, haven’t those pharma lobbyists been busy!

I learn from the excellent Dick Puddlecote blog that the Eurotwats in Brussels are trying to sidestep October’s decision by the EU parliament and bring in medicalisation of e-ciggies anyway. Now e – ciggies are a harmless substitute for smokers who recognise the health hazards of nicotine but like the warm secure feeling a ciggy gives, almost as if they are still at their mother’s tit. But enough of my sarcasm, people should be free to make their own choices no matter what a bunch of smooth faced limpdicks in the EU think.

A document has been leaked which lays out dozens of clauses which the Big Pharma have sold to the EU to be inserted into the tobacco products directive.

Smokers rights campaigner Bates describes the trust of the document like this:

Basically, the Commission has tried to smuggle in as much medicine-style regulation as possible, and then added the most restrictive commercial aspects of tobacco regulation on top – thus imposing the worst of both worlds for this most promising product. There are one or two acceptable things in the new draft, of course, but the very bad things listed hugely outweigh them all.

Bearing in mind that a PhD in incompetence is the essential qualification for reaching the upper echelons of any bureaucracy we predict this will backfire. Conservative estimates already reckon one in four cigarettes sold in the UK are brought in illegally (realistic estimates put the figure as high as one in two) and with the latest attack on smokers’ rights, which had focused on plain packaging (because as the ‘science’ clearly does not show though the bansturbators insist it does, people only smoke because the packets are such pretty colours) has now opened a second front against substitute ciggies that carry no health risk.

It is obviously not the health of smokers that concerns the bansturbators of the authoritarian left, but the fact that people are enjoying something. There can be not other reason why the unelected bureaucrats have not sent away Big Pharma lobbyists, telling them “No, we are not doing this, the elected body voted against making nicotine substitute a prescription only drug that your bosses can profit from.”

Simple Arithmetic, Government Style

November 4, 2013

‘Don’t look now, but New World Order big government is trying to poison us. US QUANGO the California’s Almond Board (which is overseen by the Food and Drug Agency) says Almonds are so dangerous they should be sterilised using a known carcinogen.

The Almond Board, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, proposed an industry-wide “mandatory sterilization” requiring all almonds, even those grown organically, to be pasteurized, in response to a string of salmonella outbreaks in 2001 and 2004 in which 33 people became ill, but there were no deaths. That is obviously a huge health risk compared, say, to the trivial number (circa 100,000) of Americans who die from prescription drugs each year.

The Almond Board says five methods of “pasteurization” are allowed. They include: oil roasting, dry roasting, blanching, steam processing and, incredibly, the use of propylene oxide (PPO), which is, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, a “probable human carcinogen.”‘

A lot of Californian almonds are exported to the UK.

Salt Health Risk? A Big Pinch of Healthy Scepticism

May 11, 2013

You’re probably sick of hearing dire warnings about the harmful effects of salt in the diet. Sodium, the substance that gices salt it’s flavour is one of the minerals essential to life.

As with Anthropogenic Global Warming there are two sides to the debate but only one is presented in mainstream media.

This article tries to go some way to redressing the balance by showing that as with AGW the “science” is by no means settled.

Fear and Painc! Mild Illness Suddenly Becomes A Killer Now Vaccine Is Available.

November 10, 2012

The mysteriously named Rotovirus (do you get it from having sex with gardeners tilling machines?) has suddenly become a potential killer that might wipe us all out if we don’t get vaccinated NOW!

Or alternatively the virus will make quite a lot of people quite poorly for a few days as it has every years since men first stood erect.

What has happened you see is the mad scientists and greedy money grubbing bastards of big pharma have developed a vaccine for this non serious illness. Now knowing that most punters are smart enough to remember the swine flu scam which was going to kill us all unless we got vaccinated but didn’t though few of us had the jab, and having already signed contracts for £25million worth of this latest bucket of Pharmaceutical shit, the government has to justify it. It is ironic that in Germany where 70% of people had the swine flu jab, the number dying of swine flu per 100,000 population was four times higher than in Britain, France and Holland where less than 10% were vaccinated. Hee Hee.

Time for a fear and panic campaign. Headlines in the Daily Wail, The Daily Excess and other news sheets read by the terminally fearful are proclaiming that the Rotovirus has struck early this year (it’s November, there isn’t much of the year left) and is laying thousands of people low. You will DIE or even worse things will happen to you if you don’t rush off to your doctor and get the vaccine now!

Reports say there are 1200 known cases of Rotovirus but may be many more that have not been reported. What? People have been struck down by this potential killer and not bothered to call their doctor? Because perhaps they have had the problem many times and know all the doctor can say is “Rest and drink plenty of fluids.”

Just as an aside, another report on medical research today reveals that the recreational drug Crystal Meth can fight the flu? Really? Bring it on.

Health Authorities Now Admit Severe Side Effects Of Vaccines

May 22, 2012

Many times in the past I have taken a lot of stick for questioning the safety of vaccines and the obession of politiians and medical authorities for throwing huge amounts of taxpayers money at manufacturers for these often ineffective and occasionally highly dangerous providers of alleged immunity. As always, the time eventually comes to say I told you so. Here, released into the public domain is an report from a medical journal revealing the risks of the so – called swine flu vaccine that a few years ago our government and GPs on behalf of Big Pharma were trying to bully is into accepting. You will never see this information published in mainstream media of course. As already mentioned, the occasions on which serious harm results from a vaccine are rare. But if you are permantently harmed (and there is no way to predict who is susceptible) it’s too late. Here’s the essay.

Health Authorities Now Admit Severe Side Effects of Vaccination Swine Flu, Pandemrix and Narcolepsy by Karin Munsterhjelm-Ahumada, M.D. (OMNS, March 20, 2012) The swine flu pandemic of 2009 was caused by a type A influenza (H1N1) virus. This virus was originally referred to as “swine flu” because many of the genes of this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America. The H1N1 virus is genetically similar to the 1918 pandemic virus, as determined from victimes of the latter who were buried, and later disinterred, in Svalbard.

It was responsible for most of the outbreaks up until 1956 and then disappeared. However, this new virus was actually quite different from the typical swine flu viruses. This virus first caused illness in Mexico and the United States in March and April, 2009. This novel H1N1 flu spread from person to person, unlike typical swine flu. In 2009 vaccines were being developed for the prevention of swine flu in humans. http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=99584

On 11 June 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the swine flu had developed into a full scale world epidemic – a pandemic alert to Phase 6. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of WHO, commented on the situation in a somewhat ambiguous way. While stressing that the swine flu had reached a serious pandemic level, she declared later in the same statement that the illness seemed to be mild and that most of the patients would recover without medical intervention. (my emphasis) http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2009/h1n1_pandemic_phase6_20090611/en/index.html

The world chose to listen to the first part of her message. Two pharmaceutical companies GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Novartis had, under considerable time pressure, developed a vaccine against the swine flu. Since the cultivation of an adequate amount of virus to generate the vaccine requires time, GSK and Novartis decided to formulate a weaker vaccine but strenghten it with an adjuvant that contains squalene. Immunologic adjuvants are substances, administered in conjunction with a vaccine, that stimulate the immune system and increase the response to the vaccine http://www.who.int/vaccine_safety/topics/adjuvants/squalene/questions_and_answers/en/. Although squalene is a natural substance found in methabolic pathways of the body, its inclusion in a vaccine is controversial and it is not in use in the USA. On 25 September 2009, the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) approved Pandemrix, the swine flu vaccine produced by GSK and Focetria produced by Novartis. http://justthevax.blogspot.com/2009/09/eu-approves-gsk-pandemrix-and-novartis.html

The vaccine would be ready for use that October. In Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland, the authorities explicitly set the goal of vaccinating the entire population http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/massvaccinering-raddade-sex-liv_6851143.svd.

In this respect, it is of interest that the governments of these countries, already before the outbreak of the swine flu, had concluded an agreement with GSK, according to which they were assured the delivery of pandemic vaccines, if needed. In addition, the contract stipulated that, in a situation characterized as a pandemic by the WHO, the same Nordic countries would have ten days to decide whether or not to accept delivery of the vaccine in question. Hence, the purpose of the agreement was to assure that the entire populations of these countries would receive vaccinations.

Finally, the contract protected GSK from any claim for financial compensation in case the delivered vaccine would have any side effects. When WHO declared the swine flu to be a Phase 6 pandemic, the agreement referred to above was automatically activated. Mass vaccination started in Finland and Sweden in October 2009. In order to cover the largest possible percentage of the population, the authorities initiated an enormous public relations campaign, which could be described in terms of a “moral persuasion.” Solidarity became the slogan: “Be vaccinated to protect your fellow citizens.”

Those who questioned the vaccination program (small groups of vaccine opponents or just people who were hesitant) were looked upon with disapproval. In contrast to these vaccine – enthusiastic countries, the politics of vaccination within the rest of the European Union varied immensely among its member states. Poland, for example, decided not to buy vaccines at all due to the strict agreement conditions required by the pharmaceutical companies. Denmark’s order covered only “risk groups”. http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/svd-granskar-sveriges-vaccinering-mot-svininfluensan_6843475.svd

The expected second wave of the influenza never appeared. The epidemic gradually declined during the first half of 2010. The same year, on 10 August, WHO officially declared the end of the epidemic. The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) stated that the swine flu was less dangerous and had a lower mortality rate than the seasonal influenza. Thus, apparently the swine flu would not have been a dangerous epidemic even without the mass vaccination. Interestingly, also that same year, vitamin D was shown to prevent influenza in children. (1)

In Sweden, 60% of the population had been vaccinated, while in Finland 50% was covered. In contrast, the figures in Germany and Poland were only 8 and 0% respectively. In the history of Swedish health care this pandemic campaign amounted to one of the most expensive ever. Enormous amounts of taxpayer money were at stake. http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/svd-granskar-sveriges-vaccinering-mot-svininfluensan_6843475.svd

Meanwhile, the media had become silent on this issue ; there was no further discussion about the swine flu anymore. Then the blow came: “The absolutely worst thing that could happen,” commented Richard Bergström, the Director – General of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, EFPIA. “The worst nightmare of both the industry and the health authorities is an illness that turns out to be mild, while the vaccine that was supposed to prevent a dangerous epidemic causes a severe side effect that was previously unknown.” http://www.kostdemokrati.se/nyheter/files/2012/02/SvD-sid-14-19.pdf

In August 2010, Finland reported an increased occurrence of narcolepsy in children and youngsters vaccinated with Pandemrix. On 1 September 2010, Finland stopped all Pandemrix vaccinations. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/09/10/swine-flu-vaccine-may-have-caused-narcolepsy.aspx

Narcolepsy is a severe chronic neurologic disease that not only results in a disabling fatigue, which typically results in the patient falling asleep anywhere and at any time. It might also lead to panic attacks and a state of exhaustion. For many, the worst consequences are the symptoms of cataplexy. This condition causes the narcolepsy patient, when expressing strong feelings such as laughter or crying, to suddenly lose muscular control. The legs give way, speech gets slurred, the gaze goes unfocused and the person gives the impression of being drunk.

In some patients, frightening hallucinations appear when falling asleep or waking up. On 1 September 2011, the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) admitted, that for Finnish children and youngsters age 4-19, there was a new and obvious connection between Pandemrix and narcolepsy. As stated in THL’s press release, “The increased risk associated with vaccination amounted to six cases of narcolepsy per 100,000 persons vaccinated in the 4-19 age group during the eight months following vaccination. This was 12.7 times the risk of a person in the same age group who had not been vaccinated. http://www.thl.fi/en_US/web/en/pressrelease?id=26352

This statement was made almost exactly two years after the THL’s earlier statement made in the midst of the swine flu hysteria that everyone should be vaccinated with Pandemrix and that it would be safe. In that original statement, the director of the THL emphasized that the squalene adjuvant could increase the side effects of the vaccine to some extent. However, he stated, these side effects would not be dangerous. http://www.tohtori.fi/?page=5833192&id=0169960

In Sweden, at least 150 children are now suffering from narcolepsy caused by Pandemrix vaccine. In Finland, the number is approximately 100. In both countries the number is probably growing. Narcolepsy is a disease with lifetime consequences, and the risk that Pandremix may have caused other neurological illnesses has not yet been excluded. Many have already began to compare this tragedy with the thalidomide catastrophe. http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/medicinsk-tragedi-med-ett-absurt-slut_6861775.svd

No European countries had a particularly high rate of deaths due to the swine flue. Germany had the same death rate as Sweden, which was 0.31/100 000, although Sweden vaccinated 60% and Germany only 8%. This implies that the vaccine did little to prevent deaths. The responsible authorities have not yet commented on this matter of fact. “>http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/massvaccinering-raddade-sex-liv_6851143.svd

Last year the Finnish government promised full compensation for those who have developed narcolepsy as a consequence of the vaccination. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-05/finnish-government-to-compensate-pandemrix-narcolepsy-victims.html.

While Sweden did, indeed, follow the Finnish THL in admitting the connection between the vaccine and the disease, the Swedish authorities have not yet decided whether and how to provide appropriate compensation. In February 2012, Svenska Dagbladet, a widely read newspaper in Sweden, presented an informative and accurate series of articles on this theme. They describe some of the affected children narrating how difficult it is to live with narcolepsy
http://www.svd.se/nyheter/multimedia/artikel_6840743.svd”>http://www.svd.se/nyheter/multimedia/artikel_6840743.svd

According to the authorities, much research is still underway concerning the details of the vaccine injury. Taking the pressure from the public and the affected families into account, it will be difficult for them to avoid carrying out a thorough investigation. Let’s hope so.

The Golden Orwells; #1 for Fat Fascism

May 11, 2012

In another of our consciousness raising initiatives Greenteeth, the parent company of Little Nicky Machiavelli and Boggart Blog has created the Golden Orwell Awards.

 

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984?

Who qualifies for a Golden Orwell? Those public servants who constantly pump out misleading or downright false information aimed at spreading fear and panic in order to convince us we are all infantile poltroons who could not survive more than a few hours without the constant protection of Nanny State and the idle, gutless media droids who repeat the lie until it becomes accepted as truth.

Like William Leith in the Daily Smellygraph for example. Take a look at this fine piece of journalistic regurgitating of government bullshit from said writer: “We’re All Feckless Losers In The Fight On Fat”. he begins, “Something terrible is happening to our bodies. In the UK, in 2012, one in four adults is obese. That’s right – obese. What does this mean? It means that one in four of us is walking around – or, more accurately, shuffling or waddling about – with great slabs of wobbly flesh hanging off us.

One in four? This is bullshit on speed. Yes, there are more fat people than there were, say 50 years ago, many more. There are also less grey and ghostly figures shuffling round the streets coughing blood up because their lungs have been rotted by the industrial fumes they spent a lifetime inhaling because they needed to make a living. Society changes.

When I drive through Accrington, a very working class community, there are usually a few overweight people around, some grossly overweight actually, but one in four obese? No way. Let’s remind ourselves what obese means. Obese: having excessive body fat, grossly overweight.

OK, excessive fat, grossly overweight, not “a tad on the podgy side.”

Ah but we must remember the people who now define the word obese for us are World Health Organisation, the same self serving charlatans who, when they were trying to sell us Swine Flu on behalf of their mates Big Pharma changed the definition of “pandemic” from “millions of people will be seriously ill and hundreds of thousands will die all around the world” to “a few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.”

Thus, as far as the statistics obsessed WHO scientists are concerned the only measure of obesity is the discredited Body Mass Index which makes it possible to be both ripped and obese at the same time (Because lean muscle weighs much heavier than the equivalent volume of fat.)

So outside of the Daily Smellygraph, government offices (where getting a bit of work done would help a lot but would go totally against the public sector ethic), the nurses rest room at National Health Service hospitals, official publications, fake charities that see money to be had promoting the latest health scare and in the minds of medical scientists where can we see this obesity epidemic? If you go looking you will quickly come to the conclusion that it doesn’t exist. Along with the health risks posed by drinking alcohol, eating too much salt, sugar, red meat, butter, milk, and more or less anything else that big pharma have not made safe for you by adulterating it with toxic chemical the “evidence” is just phoney statistics, the science is bogus.

If you use BMI as an indicator it is possible to claim almost any healthy person is obese, according to the index obesity starts where anorexia stops. It appears this is precisely what is happening. As with all the heart disease bullshit, there is a concerted effort by the mass medication industry to turn us all into patients for life. One in four obese? FFS, this is risible. Have a quick bur surreptitious count next time you walk down a fairly busy street. Why do the medical authorities, government and media indulge in such scaremongering? Well in the case of the media, those precious little lefties with their Mickey Mouse degrees in “journalism” know no better. As for the others, follow the money.

Killer Red Meat Report Was Faked By Researchers Says Analysis.

March 18, 2012

Last week, in Frying Pan Fascists Want To Steal Your Steak we reported one of those health scare things scientists cook up now and again in order to get money from Big Pharma, Big Agriculture or in the latest scare promoted by Big Government.

Cut read meat consumption or you will surely die a painful, lingering death, they screamed at us as if even looking at a burger would take twenty years off our lives.

The press releases were big on sensation, light on detail, which is not surprising as the details did not bear out the conclusion (after climategate, cutletgate?)

What the details did show is that the conclusion of this gigantic, very long term study was dishonest.

Cut red meat, they said. We already had reduced red meat consumption considerably since the exercise started so there was no oint telling us how many extra years we would live if we cut just one portion of read meat a day from our menu. You see the avergage male (and men tend to eat more meat than women) consumes less than one portion of red meat a day.

So really this was just an attempt by the left wing neo nazi bansturbators who have hijacked the public sector to remove red meat from the menu.
