Vaccine-related deaths in the U.S. are over 26,000 a year. The deaths are not by needle in arm, but occur years later, with union and intersection to vaccinations, in a way that is illuminated by statistics.
First, a foil will set our stage. HIV weakens the immune system by direct attack; vaccinations weaken benelles by never using them. Thus an “AIDS vaccine” would be an irony, and odd, since the solution for AIDS is within HIV, but we digress. In a nutshell, disuse presents risk by blocking health-by-virus (HbV).
1) Organic food is too expensive.
Truth: Processed food is too expensive.
Processed food puts wear and tear on your benelles, causing chronic sickness. Most diabetes, heart disease, and obesity is from processed food. This means processed food is behind the bulk of today’s healthcare costs, making it the most expensive slop in town.
Really, it depends on value and priority. Yes, you can save money for fun stuff by buying the cheapest processed meat around. And those hot dogs will keep you alive, but increase your risk of pancreatic cancer by 19%.
1) Salt is bad.
Truth: Being low on salt is bad.
People who reduce their salt intake to U.S. dietary guidelines are 37% more likely to die of cardiovascular disease, and 28% more likely to die overall. Salt protects your heart and helps lift blood pressure to your body’s desired level.
This risk disclosure agreement is for parents who are vaccinating a child.
Vaccination is important for your child’s health and involves certain risks to his/her long-term health. You are choosing to vaccinate your child. Your signature is required that you accept these risks, and you agree not to bring lawsuit against your doctor, health insurance provider, or state government in the event your child comes down with a serious illness later in life.
We can categorize medical treatment broadly as emergency, non-emergency, and chronic.
Emergency treatment would include repairing a compound fracture, stitching a laceration, treating a heart attack, providing a blood transfusion, etc.
Actual emergencies are rare. And currently, our healthcare system is handling emergency treatment without major needs of reform. The one problem would be a tendency to overreact instead of providing careful observation. For instance, poisonings and head injuries are often over-treated, causing further harm. Continue reading
Old paths are full of certified folks. To protect the financial value of certifications, professionals wrap endorsements around their status quo.
Over time, with much wrapping, a school of thought closes down unique thought. This is similar to everyone in a room agreeing with the boss, when they really don’t.
“Cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.”
There, they finally said it. But will the USDA listen to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee?
The USDA should listen to the committee, but will be tempted not to, since it will create financial risk for cash-cow cholesterol-fighting companies. I mean, who wants to fight something that’s healthy?
1) The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
75 cents of every vaccination goes toward reimbursing other children who are injured by vaccination. Every measles-mumps-rubella vaccine is $2.25 collected by the government to reimburse other children that are vaccine-injured.
As a parent, it’s okay to ask, “Is a chance of permanent damage to my child worth some protection against measles and mumps?”
Are you a good parent if you don’t ask?
“It takes 50 years to get a wrong idea out of medicine, and 100 years a right one into medicine.” —John Hughlings Jackson, neurologist
Loop diuretics, one of the most prescribed drugs in the country, are bad for people.
Diuretics can relieve the symptom of fluid congestion by forcing you to pee more. But, diuretics:
Research shows that people with heart failure may actually have the failure due to diuretics (Bayliss et al 1987). Furthermore, withdrawal of diuretics cause patients to see improvements in kidney function (Galve 2005). And, if the doctor increases your dose of loop diuretics, he’s increasing your chances of death (Hasselblad et al 2007).
Salt keeps our renin and aldersterone levels low. That’s good, because elevation of those hormones causes a stiffening of the heart, and death of heart cells (Zannad 1995).
Low-salt diets increase renin, and renin’s job is to increase blood pressure. Thus, low-salt diets are exactly the wrong solution to lower blood pressure.
