(Sarah Parnass, Alice Li/The Washington Post) PHILADELPHIA — For a week, Jill Stein was everywhere that the Democratic National Convention was not. The Green Party’s likely candidate for president made drop-ins to a four-day Socialist Convergence at the Quaker meeting hall, rallied “Bernie or Bust” protesters outside the gates of Philadelphia’s sports complex and sat for interview after interview. When she sat with The Washington Post’s Sarah Parnass and Alice Li, Stein explained her stance on something that had flared up during a Reddit AMA....

[Translate]   Dr. Sin Hang Lee, M.D. Image Source. by Brian Shilhavy Editor, Health Impact News I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. This statement was made in April of 2014 by French medical doctor Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Merck, the manufacturer of the HPV vaccine Gardasil. (Story here.)

Does One Gene Hold the Secret to the Rise in Autism?...

Jul 29, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] A study of 168 children diagnosed with autism demonstrated that 98% of children diagnosed with autism share at least one of the various MTHFR gene mutations 1. What does the MTHFR gene do? The MTHFR gene creates the MTHFR enzyme, which enables methylation. What is methylation? Methylation is a vital metabolic process occurring within every cell of your body, billions of times per second. It is a cycle that is responsible for creating crucial substances like neurotransmitters as well as the primary antioxidant in our bodies: glutathione What happens when the MTHFR gene is mutated? When there is a mutation within the MTHFR gene, it results in distortion of the MTHFR enzyme’s shape. Enzyme function depends on shape, just as a key depends upon grooves to work in a lock. A dysfunctional MTHFR...

Stop doing this to my grandson. You don’t know everything.” At 24 years old, I was convinced that I did in fact know just about everything and if I didn’t, David’s pediatrician certainly would. At David’s next well-child visit I expressed concerns about vaccine safety and told him my mom thought she observed a regression after his MMR and varicella vaccines. He responded by waiving his finger in my face and shouting at me, “How dare you question me! How dare you even question vaccines! I am a doctor. Is your mom a doctor? Are you?

6 Human Activities That Pose The Biggest Threat To The World’s Drinking Water...

Unfortunately, population growth and pollution are threatening to seriously undermine the availability of clean drinking water in many of the world’s major cities. According to a study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, water treatment costs have risen by 50 percent in a third of large cities around the world. That means that getting clean, pure drinking water to people has become an increasingly difficult task, requiring cities not only to pay for expensive treatments, but pay for the construction of treatment plants to dole out said expensive treatments. All told, the study estimated that the total cost of degradation to our drinking water —...

Regulating Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Could Improve the Health of the Next Generation...

Jul 20, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] With more than 100,000 chemicals on the global market, it is a tremendous challenge to identify those that might cause harm to humans or wildlife. One class of chemicals, endocrine disruptors (chemicals that interfere with natural hormones), is receiving significant attention in the United States, European Union, and elsewhere. Expert panels from the United Nations Environment Programme and World Health Organization, the Endocrine Society, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and others have concluded that the evidence linking endocrine disrupting chemicals to human diseases is strong. How do we determine if a chemical is an endocrine disruptor? How do we separate the ‘bad actors’ from all of the other non-hazardous compounds? Although this may seem like an easy task, in fact, it has proven to be quite difficult. In the US, for example, the Environmental Protection Agency...

Some highly publicized recent studies had shown that eating lots of fresh vegetables and olive oil along with maybe a splash of red wine could have tremendous health benefits, and they wondered whether it was something the VA, as an organization, should consider recommending to its more than 9 million patients. They tasked Bloomfield with figuring out whether this health effect was real — or simply hype.

The legality of the state’s new medical mandate will now be questioned in court on the basis of constitutionality, discrimination, and invasion of privacy. A high-class legal team is leading the challenge. New information about a planned secret meeting between a doctor in the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and officials from the California Medical Board was just uncovered which has also lead to a formal complaint being filed against the CDPH for alleged collusion and attempts to illegally garner medical information from student records. Such actions may be a violation of several state laws already in effect.

Jul 19, 2016 Posted by

[Translate] By Jenny Smith I must respond to the inaccurate opinion column written by Nicholas Seabrook about the movie, “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.” “Vaxxed” is not “anti-vaccine.” It is about malfeasance at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Over 10,000 documents have been handed to U.S. Rep. Bill Posey who is also in the film. The movie is about a senior scientist and four others who were responsible for analyzing data in relation to the MMR vaccine and autism. What they did was slice and dice the data to get rid of that effect (MMR causing autism). The movie recommended splitting up the MMR vaccine into single vaccines since studies did not show this effect. Does that sound anti-vaccine?

The latest story comes from Florida, which has decided it needs to get a Microcephaly birth after New Jersey announced they had a birth.
