WARNING: Resistant Head Lice On The Rise, Docs Urge Prescriptions Meds

Mac Slavo – September 11, 2017

Head lice: a giant pain in the backsides of parents taking their children into public and an annoyingly itchy irritating parasite that must be eliminated. But the new super lice could present a problem with treatments and has become much more daunting over the past years. Yet, there’s a solution…

According to Today the effectiveness of over the counter preparations had declined to 25 percent, a level described as being “no better than placebo.” Even with “nit combing,” the process of removing some of the younger and recently hatched lice from the hair follicle, according to a  review article published in Pediatric Dermatology late last year found that the tedious process is as effective as a placebo. Worse, even higher doses of the over the counter product aren’t any more effective, researchers said.

But a prescription doesn’t necessarily equate to efficacy, and there is something that can help.  Doctors are now saying that the treatments are not effective because they aren’t done properly and with dedication.  They are done with lazy impatience making prescription medications the only avenue for frustrated parents.

Two People In Canada Have Died From West Nile Virus

Mac Slavo – September 12, 2017

Two Windsor-Essex people in Canada are dead after succumbing to the West Nile Virus. As more and more cases pop up in the United States, health officials are warning to not take this disease lightly.

In Utah state alone, the number of West Nile cases is 22, said Dallin Peterson, an epidemiologist who oversees all animal- and vector-borne diseases for the Utah Department of Health, including one fatal case in Salt Lake County. The county has confirmed that the virus was found in mosquitoes across the state and that lead to a death. Hillcrest High School football coach Cazzie Brown, who unexpectedly died late last month, is said by family to have become ill by contracting West Nile virus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, about one in 150 who contract the virus will be subjected to serious symptoms that could prove fatal. Fortunately, most people infected with the West Nile virus do not have symptoms. About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever and other mild symptoms. Canadian health officials said in a statement released Monday, “(West Nile virus) continues to be a risk until the area experiences temperatures below freezing.”

Infectious Mosquitoes Are Turning Up in New Regions

– September. 7, 2017

A mounting number of citations on a popular disease-tracking website suggests that mosquitoes may be moving into new ecological niches with greater frequency.

The website, ProMED mail, has carried more than a dozen such reports since June, all involving mosquito species known to transmit human diseases.

Most reports have concerned the United States, where, for example, Aedes aegypti — the yellow fever mosquito, which also spreads Zika, dengue and chikungunya — has been turning up in counties in California and Nevada where it had never, or only rarely, been seen.

Other reports have noted mosquito species found for the first time on certain South Pacific islands, or in parts of Europe where harsh winters previously kept them at bay.

ALERT: An Incredibly Fast And Deadly Super Bug Is Spreading In China: “Substantial Threat To Human Health”

Mac Slavo – September 7, 2017

There is a substantial threat to human health in China, and it could become a global epidemic if not contained. As an antibiotic resistant super bug is making its way across the country and the new deadly illness spreads, the mainstream media remains tightlipped about this potential epidemic.

Infowars’ editor note reads:

We’re horrified to learn that we’re the first international news outlet to bring massive attention to this story. This superbug was first revealed in The Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal. Until now, this story went underreported in the media, with only a handful of regional outlets providing limited coverage.

The Lancet has titled their article: A fatal outbreak of ST11 carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae in a Chinese hospital: a molecular epidemiological study.  It bears to reason that this may be something that the general public should be concerned about, and the silence by mainstream media is telling.

Health Officials Worry A Deadly Avian Flu In China Could Be Next Pandemic

Sarah Elizabeth Richards – August 23, 2017

On March 31, 2013, the Chinese health ministry quietly notified the World Heath Organization of three mysterious deaths. After developing coughing and sneezing symptoms, the victims’ lungs had filled with fluid, and they died gasping for air. The only thing they had in common was being around live chickens. One victim worked at a poultry market, and the other two recently had shopped at one.

Tests revealed what global health officials had feared for decades: There was a new form of avian influenza. “This strain usually caused mild symptoms like redness of the eyes or low-grade respiratory problems in humans,” said Daniel Jernigan, head of the influenza division of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We knew it was different and much more severe when it killed three people.”

More than four years later, the virus has spread across southern China and sickened nearly 1,560 people, nearly 40 percent of whom have died. In May, the CDC ranked the influenza strain H7N9 the highest possible threat for viruses at risk of causing a worldwide pandemic ― just a year shy of the 100th anniversary of the Spanish flu outbreak that claimed nearly 50 million lives in 1918.

Thousands at risk of pig virus from ‘Supermarket X’ sausages

Jonathan Leake – August 20 2017

A leading British supermarket may unwittingly have infected thousands of people with a pig virus that causes liver cirrhosis and neurological damage, say researchers at Public Health England.

Hepatitis E (HEV) is transmitted by sausages and pork products from Europe, mainly Holland and Germany. UK pigs do not have the virus strain in question.

Scientists at PHE, a government agency, have traced the shopping habits of infected people and found that a common factor is consumption of own-brand sausages from “Supermarket X”.

PHE and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have refused to name Supermarket X but two separate sources said it was Tesco.

comment: John Durrad  http://www.setapartbytruth.org 

This report stopped me from buying my pork sausages from Tesco’s, the suspected seller of this product. I am joking! I have not knowingly eaten any pork products for 50 years! The reason being, first of all God says not to, and secondly research has shown that pork products are not healthy anyway. Incidentally, pork flesh is the nearest thing to human flesh.

“And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh,” Deut 14:8

God says the swine is unclean, or unfit for human consumption. No one would eat meat that was dirty or mouldy, but pork products look alright and taste alright, so the Bible instruction is ignored.

Of course, many people today are either ignorant of this instruction or do not believe what God says. Unfortunately, the consequences of breaking God’s food laws, whether knowingly or unknowingly result in health problems.

The time is coming when all God’s food laws together with the ten commandments will be kept. That can only come under the Government of God, and will ensure that people will be healthy, happy and responsive to God’s Words, the Words of Life!

Docs worry over new strain of swine flu

Shimona Kanwar – August 6, 2017

Chandigarh: Bad news for those who got themselves vaccinated against swine flu for the season as this will provide little protection against the present strain of the virus, which has changed, claim experts. In the absence of this protective guard, the doctors are apprehensive of the rise in the cases this year. Already the city has seen 20 cases in a span of 15 days, including four deaths.

The PGIMER is getting four-five patients on a daily basis, which test positive for the flu. “We are surprised about the occurrence of the flu in this season, which earlier used to be November and January.

Moreover, like humans, viruses also adapt and modify to survive. These new viruses have appeared in July, which implies that the flu will occur in all seasons now,” said a doctor at the PGIMER.

With genetic morph, a weird type of anthrax has emerged—and it’s on a rampage

– August 5, 2017

After getting a hold of the genetic blueprints for molecular weapons, relatively harmless bacteria transformed into one that can cause anthrax—in places and animals where the original anthrax bacteria doesn’t. And it’s wreaking havoc.

Using data collected over a 26-year period, researchers found that this strange version of anthrax is running rampant in tropical rainforest habitats of Sub-Saharan Africa, killing off broad swaths of mammals. In fact, researchers estimated this week in Nature that this “rainforest anthrax” could wipe out chimpanzee populations in the Côte d’Ivoire’s Taï National Park within the next 150 years. It’s currently associated with nearly 40 percent of all chimp deaths there. And researchers are just getting started on understanding risks to humans, which have so far been thought to be low.

Figuring out the scale and prevalence of this rainforest anthrax will be “critical for mitigating against the detrimental effects” to wildlife and “assessing human infection risk,” the researchers, led by infectious disease expert Fabien Leendertz of the Robert Koch Institute in Germany, conclude.

Poland blasts EU ‘blackmail’ over judicial reform after voting rights threat

RT – July 26, 2017

In the latest jab aimed at Brussels, Warsaw has accused the EU of blackmailing it over controversial judicial reform. The European Commission said it was ready to suspend Poland’s voting rights at the EU.

The confrontation came on Wednesday, after Polish President Andrzej Duda signed into law a bill allowing the justice minister to hire and fire chief justices in common courts.

The bill was one of three reforming Poland’s justice system pushed ahead by the ruling Law and Justice party (PiS), with the other two tightening government control over the Supreme Court and a special body protecting the independence of judges.

In a surprise move on Tuesday, Duda vetoed the two other bills, but his decision to greenlight the third still drew criticism from the European Commission, which said Poland was undermining EU values by compromising the rule of law.
