Parents Who Refused To Vaccinate Children Suffer the Most Flu Deaths

For years, liberals and conspiracy theory hacks have refused to vaccinate their children, claiming the vaccine causes deaths to those who are given the shot. Now, the current death toll for children ages 2 months to 17 years of age stands at 84 and is still climbing. The CDC (Centers for Disease and Prevention…How did they get CDC out of that name?) in their most recent report found that most of the deaths were children who were not vaccinated. Ironically, studies show that the vaccine works better for children than it does for adults.

WebMD reported:

Of the 54 kids who were old enough to get the flu vaccine, only 14 — or 26% — had gotten at least one dose, according to a flu update published today in the CDC journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

About half of the children who died had underlying medical conditions that made them more vulnerable to severe complications from the flu, and 60% had been admitted to the hospital before they died.

In previous flu seasons, as many as 85% of children who died after getting the flu had not been vaccinated.

 Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said:

“That really tells you that we could have cut those deaths significantly if more of those kids had been vaccinated.”

The report shows that the vaccine is only effective in 36% of adults and so parents do not have their children vaccinated with disastrous results. The percentage of effectiveness for children is much higher. Parents need better information to make wiser choices. The children cannot make that decision for themselves, so parents need to educate themselves before making a decision on vaccines.

You should note that we are only halfway through the flu season and it’s not too late to have your child vaccinated. Children must be at least six months old to receive the medicine.

Bee Keepers Going To Court Against Major Corporate Chemical Giant Over Glyphosates In Their Honey

If you’re a health nut, or even if you just watch what you eat, for what ever reason, you should probably look closely at this story the next time you buy honey. Glyphosates have been linked to cancer causing agents, and now it has been discovered in honey. Bee keepers are concerned enough about it that they are taking a heavy weight corporation, Bayer, to court over it.

Ecowatch published this story.

Bayer, which recently wrapped up its takeover of Monsanto, now owns glyphosate and the liabilities surrounding it.

Last Thursday, the same day the $63 billion acquisition closed, a beekeeping cooperative in northern France filed a legal complaint against the German chemical giant after the controversial weedkiller was detected in honey produced by one of its members, AFP reported.

… The initiators of the legal complaint hope their action will open an investigation that will determine the percentage of glyphosate in honey batches and whether the contamination could lead to any health consequences for consumers.

“It’s also a matter of knowing how widespread this might be. Famille Michaud tells me this isn’t an isolated case,” Ludot said.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified the substance as “probably carcinogenic,” although Monsanto and other scientific panels, including the European Food Safety Authority, disagree.

In November, a majority of European Union member states voted to renew the license for the product for five years. French President Emmanuel Macron, however, has vowed to ban glyphosate within three years.

Bayer told French publication Le Figaro that it was informed about the legal complaint by the press and “no judicial information has been notified to date.”

Monsanto faces more than 2,000 lawsuits in the U.S. alone over Roundup cancer claims. As German newspaper Handelsblatt Global noted, “Bayer is pointing to studies that suggest glyphosate is safe, but this will likely not spare Monsanto, and therefore Bayer, incalculable costs in terms of financial resources and time spent on legal proceedings.”

Europeans have long since banned a lot of Monsanto products for various health reasons. This might be one to watch as a ban on glyphosate could severely cripple the corporation’s bottom line. They will fight this to the bitter end.

POTUS Just Made It Easier For Americans To Take More Control Of Their Healthcare Decisions And Gets Upstaged At Bill Signing [VIDEO]

It’s no secret that big pharma pretty much controls the medical industry. And with all the regulations, the average American is pretty much limited in what kind of treatments were available to them, in the event a health crisis arose. Well, not anymore. Today the president just signed a bill that would give folks with chronic illness and disease the ability to choose treatments that weren’t previously available to them.

FOX News has the details of today’s event.

President Trump on Wednesday signed into law a bill that would allow those with potentially terminal diseases to try experimental treatments and bypass the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The so-called Right to Try Act of 2017, sponsored by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., unanimously passed the Senate last August, and cleared the House last week on a party-line vote of 250-169 — in a win for both Johnson and the Trump administration. 

“Today I am proud to keep another promise to the American people as I sign the Right to Try legislation into law,” Trump said Wednesday. “We’re going to be saving tremendous numbers of lives.” 

Maybe why the president supported this bill for very personal reasons.

“As I proudly sign this bill, thousands of terminally ill Americans will have the help, the hope and the fighting chance — and I think it’s going to be better than chance — that they will be cured, that they will be helped, that they will be able to be with their families for a long time, or maybe just for a longer time,” Trump said. “But we’re able to give them the absolute best we have at this current moment, at this current second. We’re going to help a lot of people. It’s an honor to be signing this.”

So what is this bill, exactly, and what does it do?

Actually, Right To Try is a national movement that has been around for a while.

Over 1 million Americans die from a terminal illness every year. These Americans aren’t just statistics, they’re our friends, loved ones and family members. Many spend years searching for a potential cure, or struggle in vain to get accepted into a clinical trial. Unfortunately, FDA red tape and government regulations restrict access to promising new treatments, and for those who do get access, it’s often too late.

        The FDA drug approval process can take up to 15 years. This is far too long for dying patients to wait. Terminal timelines are measured in months, weeks and days. Not decades. Many potentially life-saving treatments awaiting approval in the U.S. are already available overseas, and have been for years. Sadly, most Americans cannot afford to seek treatment abroad. Many are left without hope.         

        Right to Try legislation, already law in 40 states and under consideration in 10 more, gives terminally ill patients the right to try investigational medicines that have not yet received full FDA approval. Right to Try gives life-saving hope back to those who’ve lost it. To learn more about Right to Try, read our FAQ. Find out if Right to Try is law in your state.

And what better way to start off this new policy than for POTUS to get upstaged at the bill signing by a deserving, young patient. So adorable!

This is a great move in the right direction. Government was never meant to run the healthcare industry and the bureaucracy it has created has definitely gotten in between patients and doctors. And anything that gives more people control over the pharmaceutical decisions they make, is definitely a good thing.

Something Fishy At Dartmouth? Would You Send Your Kid To A College That Spends $17 Million Dollars On Mental Health Services?

There’s just all kinds of red flags all over this story. Dartmouth University is going to spend a whole truck load of money on, not football, not campus renovation, not staff increases, but, wait for it, … mental health. Kind of makes you wonder what’s happening at Dartmouth.

There are more “interesting” developments in this story. Nobody knows just how the money will be spent.

Let’s start here with The College Fix:

The initiative, part of the elite Hanover, New Hampshire school’s “The Call to Lead” capital campaign, is part of an effort to “transform the residential life experience,” according to campaign materials. The total amount slated to be spent on student mental health resources is $17 million. The overall campaign is expected to cost $3 billion and it includes a wide variety of strategic priorities.

School officials, however, declined to elaborate on how specifically the substantial investment in mental health services will be spent. Dean of the College Rebecca Biron did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The College Fix.

Did you get that part about the total cost of the program totaling $3 billion? Yeah, that’s a lot of money, to not put a pin on.

Yeah, and all this is supposed to be in response to “student needs.” Hmmm. Yep, there’s something very fishy about this one, folks. Especially considering they only have a handful of mental health staff, presently employed at the school.
