[Translate]   We can’t keep pretending dental work is cosmetic. Poor oral hygiene can lead to diabetes, heart disease and stroke Susan Sered, The Conversation VIA SALON.COM   When we talk about the successes and shortcomings of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – and health care in the U.S. in general – little attention is given to dental care. While the ACA defines dental coverage as an essential benefit for those under 18, insurers aren’t required to offer dental coverage for adults. Medicare, the nation’s largest insurer, doesn’t cover routine dental work. And coverage for adults through Medicaid varies from state to state. It is estimated that 108 million Americans have no dental insurance, and that one in four nonelderly Americans has untreated tooth decay. Oral health isn’t just about nice teeth. As the...

NOT A PRETTY PICTURE: CLIMATE CHANGE AND HEALTH IN FOUR INFOGRAPHICS...

Apr 29, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] THE CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT The White House released a groundbreaking new scientific assessment on the impact of climate change on public health in the United States. US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murphy said, “The changes are happening right now… Climate change is going to impact health, and it’s not a pretty picture.” This might seem like old news. But the Climate and Health Assessment connects the dots between climate change and its consequences for American public health more clearly than ever before. The new report (which is the product of three years of research by 13 federal agencies) emphasizes that climate change will continue to exacerbate existing threats to health as well as give rise to new ones. But like many scientific reports, it can get a little dense. So with some help...

CHICKEN POX VACCINE MAY INCREASE SHINGLES RISK...

Apr 26, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] by Kate Raines  NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER   10 52 print this page Story Highlights Following recovery from varicella zoster (chickenpox) virus infection, the virus lies dormant and occasionally reactivates as herpes zoster (shingles) later in life. When the live virus chickenpox vaccine was licensed in 1995, it was known that an increase in the incidence of shingles was likely if the vaccine was mandated and children obtained artificial vaccine immunity rather than natural immunity. The predicted increase in shingles incidence has been verified, and future research may more fully explain if and why natural “exogenous boosting” prevents reactivation of the chickenpox virus as shingles. Before the licensing of the live varicella zoster (chickenpox) virus vaccine in 1995 and subsequent mandating of the vaccine for all children in the U.S., chickenpox itself was considered one...

The doctor was then maligned by drug companies and the media for his research and findings to such an extent that he had to end up not being able to practice medicine. He however stuck to his stance against the vaccine and became a best-selling author and also the founder of Strategic Autism Initiative and the director of the Autism Media Channel.

Indoor plants can help purify the air in your home, removing harmful pollutants and volatile airborne chemicals that can aggravate allergies and even make you sick.

WEAPONS OF MASS VACCINATION? CDC INTENSIFIES CHILDHOOD VACCINE SCHEDULE TO INCLUDE 74 INJECTIONS BEFORE AGE 17...

Apr 5, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has just added three new vaccines to the Childhood Immunization Schedule, bringing the total to an almost unbelievable 74 vaccine doses recommended before the age of 17. The agency also lowered the age of HPV (a sexually-transmitted virus) vaccination to include nine-year-olds. Since 1950, the number of required vaccine doses has risen from 3 to 74 – an increase of more than 24 times. In 1983, there were still only 10 recommended vaccines being administered to children under the age of 6 – the schedule then required 24 doses, 7 injections and 4 oral polio doses. By 2010, the number of doses had increased to 68, with over half of them being administered before children reached 18 months of age. As of February 1, 2016, the number...

The Sloan Foundation is so named from Alfred P. Sloan, a Nazi collaborator and eugenics depopulation promoter. It’s no coincidence that his own beliefs on using medical interventions to reduce race-targeted populations coincides perfectly with the stated depopulation goals of Bill Gates (whose financial web of influence is woven across the entire vaccine propaganda landscape). What led me to connect the dots on this is a short piece from Celia Farber of The Turth Barrier, who originally noticed the Sloan Foundation link. As admitted on...

In the mid-1970s, twenty years after his influential treatise on the art of loving and four decades after legendary anthropologist Margaret Mead turned to him for difficult advice, Fromm became interested in the most basic, most challenging art of human life — the art of being.
