Flu Shot Roulette

September 25, 2009

 

Seasonal flu shot may increase H1N1 risk

Preliminary research suggests the seasonal flu shot may put people at greater risk for getting swine flu, CBC News has learned.

“This is some evidence that has been floated. It hasn’t been validated yet, it’s very preliminary,” cautioned Dr. Don Low, microbiologist-in-chief at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

Swine Flu Martial Law Bill Clears Massachusetts Senate

It took corporate media swine flu hysteria to ram through a martial law bill in Massachusetts. S18 gives the Governor the power to authorize the deployment and use of force to distribute supplies and materials and local authorities will be allowed to enter private residences for investigation and to quarantine individuals.

   
   
   

The Associated Press reports:

The Massachusetts Senate has unanimously passed a pandemic flu preparation bill that has languished in the Legislature before the recent swine flu outbreak.

The 36-0 vote today sends the measure to the House. Both branches have taken it up in past years, but have not been able to agree on the details.

The new Senate version would allow the public health commissioner — in a public health emergency — to close or evacuate buildings, enter private property for investigations, and quarantine individuals.

The bill specifically mandates the following:

(1) to require the owner or occupier of premises to permit entry into and investigation of the premises;
(2) to close, direct, and compel the evacuation of, or to decontaminate or cause to be decontaminated any building or facility, and to allow the reopening of the building or facility when the danger has ended;
(3) to decontaminate or cause to be decontaminated, or to destroy any material;
(4) to restrict or prohibit assemblages of persons;
(5) to require a health care facility to provide services or the use of its facility, or to transfer the management and supervision of the health care facility to the department or to a local public health authority;
(6) to control ingress to and egress from any stricken or threatened public area, and the movement of persons and materials within the area;
(7) to adopt and enforce measures to provide for the safe disposal of infectious waste and human remains, provided that religious, cultural, family, and individual beliefs of the deceased person shall be followed to the extent possible when disposing of human remains, whenever that may be done without endangering the public health;
(8) to procure, take immediate possession from any source, store, or distribute any anti-toxins, serums, vaccines, immunizing agents, antibiotics, and other pharmaceutical agents or medical supplies located within the commonwealth as may be necessary to respond to the emergency;
(9) to require in-state health care providers to assist in the performance of vaccination, treatment, examination, or testing of any individual as a condition of licensure, authorization, or the ability to continue to function as a health care provider in the commonwealth

Any person who knowingly violates an order of the commissioner or his or her designee, or of a local public health authority or its designee, given to effectuate the purposes of this subsection shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 6 months, or by a fine of note more than one thousand dollars, or both.

More “swine flu” scare tactics via BOSTON.COM

July 13, 2009

Frikking Boston.com with their attempt at gluing SWINE FLU to the front page for the fun of scare tactics is at it again with this nonsense. Yeah, it’s sad when anyone dies BUT to blame it on the SWINE FLU is just taking a sad situation and turning it into HEADLINES.

(and they didn’t even have the NERVE to post my comment of course.)

“FIRST MASS CHILD DIES OF SWINE FLU”
sounds scary right? Our children are at risk! Oh what shall we do?

Well reading on you’ll run into:

Laboratory testing confirmed today that a 13-year-old Worcester boy with persistent health problems died from swine flu, the first Massachusetts youth to succumb to the novel virus that has killed more than 200 people in the United States, public health authorities reported this evening.

Died from SWINE FLU eh? What about the persistent health problems that he’s had well before he caught the “swine flu”?

Well, let’s define PERSISTENT which would be “continuing or permanent.”

So someone (never mind who it is) has a PERMANENT PROBLEM WITH BAD HEALTH dies and it so happens to be from the swine flu.

Yeah. And if a person with persistent health problems had gotten a cold and died would it still make HEADLINES?

I doubt it. SWINE FLU (which is only a NAME TAG and has nothing to do with SWINE) just sounds scarier and when you look at what’s going on in MASS (taxes going up through the roof, budget crisis, out of touch representatives) this is ONLY being used as a distraction.

Nothing else.

Shame on you boston.com…who is owned by the BOSTON GLOBE who if you have been following these creeps were all but out of business cause they are completely broke.

Is this what we get to read now that you have been saved from failure?

Introducing “DAILY ROUTINE MORTALITY RATE”

May 6, 2009

I don’t know about the rest of you that are unfortunate to be EDUCATED like myself but I think I’ve had just about enough of the hoopla around the FEAR MARKETING backing ailments that sound very scary but really are not.

But what REALLY busts my hump is that they don’t even care if they are DAMMING the cure just for the sake of FEAR MARKETING.

First we have the fun headline that was the #1 punching bag until the “swine flu” came along:

“The key to avoiding 
skin cancer: ‘Sun is the main cause’

Avoid the sun and avoid skin cancer eh? Well what about Vitamin D? Your body produces this when you are exposed to the sun which (in any-other case) would make it a “pro-hormone” not a vitamin but whatever. I’m not a Doctor so maybe I don’t understand.

Then we get this headline:

Critically Ill Patients Lack Vitamin D

Critically Ill…that sounds pretty bad. REAL BAD.

So what is a person to do with 2 conflicting headlines. Either you get skin cancer and Vitamin D or you don’t get skin cancer and Vitamin D BUT you are at risk of becoming “critically ill”.

This brings me to what I like to call DAILY ROUTINE MORTALITY RATE.

This is simply how many people die per year based on doing things that are required to get through a typical day.

Doing a search on my pal Wikipedia there is something called the crude death rate which is the total # of deaths per year per 1000 people REGARDLESS of how they died.

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_causes_of_death_by_rate)

In the United States (which happens to be about the same as the world average) it’s 8 people per 1000 per year meaning about 2,400,000 people die a year in the USA REGARDLESS (300M total pop/1000 x 8).

According to the World Health Organization on their list of reasons people died and the mortality rate there are about 80 ailments SKIN CANCER/Melanoma is #75.

Only Hepatitis C, Leishmaniasis, Trypanosomiasis, and Benign prostatic hyperplasia are less of a risk (so to say) and they are ailments that only the good Dr House would be interested in.

Mortality rate for all skin diseases is 1.1people for every 100,000 in the world which if the population is 6B (6billion / 100,000) * 1.1 is 66,000 people die of some sort of skin disease IN THE WORLD every year.

But that’s still a lot of people right? I guess that depends if it falls above or below DAILY ROUTINE or not. Let’s pick something that would fall under this heading.

Driving a car I would think qualifies.

Well the mortality rate for ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS is 19.1 for every 100K.

Meaning that (6B/ 100,000 = 60,000 * 19.1) = 1,146,000 VEHICLE RELATED DEATHS EVERY YEAR not because people are working too hard but JUST GETTING TO WORK is killing them before they get there.

Should we have a WAR ON GOING TO WORK????

Ok, car accidents might be too easy. There’s a lot involved there and we are probably doing the best we can with the TV screens they are installing in these things…

So what else? How about something that falls under “CRITICALLY ILL”?
That would be something I think people would be behind a cure for. But what qualifies as Critically ill?? From what I know (and that may not be much) it means you are suffering from something that will kill you unless drastic measures are taken, transplant, transfusion, miracle, whatever.

Now if we look at the Causes of Death Rate again you’d notice that the top 5 on the list would qualify someone as CRITICALLY ILL and they are:

1. Cardiovascular diseases
2. Infectious and parasitic diseases
3. Ischemic heart disease
4. Malignant neoplasms
5. Cerebrovascular disease

So if the main causes of death in the WORLD happen to people with low Vitamin D levels, don’t you think that it would be “worth the risk” of getting skin cancer that NO ONE dies from (#75 out of 80 on the list) to avoid the TOP 5 CAUSES OF DEATH?

Funny, I don’t see SWINE FLU on that list anywhere yet the best way to avoid it is with HIGH LEVELS OF VITAMIN D.

Bottom line, if the AILMENT IN QUESTION does not fall ABOVE other causes of death that qualify as DAILY ROUTINE (driving, falling down, drowning) then it CANNOT and SHOULD NOT have ANY MONEY WASTED ON IT until we figure out a way to cure the CRITICALLY ILL which is clearly more of a problem than skin cancer…ok ok that would be too difficult….let’s cure DEATH BY FALLING first as it’s responsible for 6.1deaths out of every 100,000 in the world.

The end.

BEWARE!!!! WARNING!!! STOP!!! THE SWINE FLU IS AFTER YOU!

April 29, 2009

…or something like that.

So if 10 people get the flu in spring that’s a cause for world panic BUT when everyone is sick with the flu in the winter, you walk it off. (why do I have a feeling “the man” is using this nonsense to distract us from a tax increase)
