Ebola: why hasn't a pandemic ever started in Brooklyn? | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

When you have: useless and false diagnostic tests; people with “Ebola” symptoms who are actually sick for reasons that have nothing to do with a virus; and a global PR machine that launches more lies per hour than a two-bit hustler at the racetrack; you can rev up a “global epidemic” purely on the basis of invented storyline and image.

 

This article is about the Ebola psyop. The imagery. The storyline. Selling it.

 

Premise One: “The virus comes from Africa. Uh oh. Woo. Watch out.”

 

‘HIV came from Africa. Uh oh. Watch out.”

 

The unproven Origin myths? “HIV=green monkeys. Ebola=fruit bats. Africans eating bats and monkeys. Africans having sex with HIV green monkeys.”

 

Storyline. Imagery.

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers'

Obesity 'linked to 10 cancers' | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Being overweight and obese puts people at greater risk of developing 10 of the most common cancers, according to research in the Lancet medical journal.

 

Scientists calculated individuals carrying this extra weight could contribute to more than 12,000 cases of cancer in the UK population every year.

 

They warn if obesity levels continue to rise there may be an additional 3,700 cancers diagnosed annually.

 

The study of five million people is the largest to date to confirm the link.

Not only do mammograms not distinguish between benign and malignant growths, the radiation can also cause cancers that weren't there to begin with. 

So if you are asked to submit at regular intervals to mammograms, do some research and weigh your options before you go... 

DebbyBruck's curator insight, September 20, 2013 4:37 PM

We have been told mammograms are the only form of prevention for women. Everyone has cancer cells throughout their lifetime that the immune system eliminates and controls. Learning to harness the power of the innate immune system will be the best form of prevention. My article on mammograms gives a full explanation of screening techniques and risks. http://debbybruck.hubpages.com/hub/mammography-controversy-screening-homeopathy

Smartphone platform shows promise as ‘artificial pancreas’ to control diabetes

Smartphone platform shows promise as ‘artificial pancreas’ to control diabetes | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Smartphones have gotten good enough to provide nearly continuous, closed-loop, outpatient control of blood sugar in people with diabetes, according to a recently published study.

 

Boris Kovatchev and fellow researchers from three countries first presented their findings of this attempt to make the “artificial pancreas” mobile at the American Diabetes Association’s annual scientific meeting in June and had their work published in the July edition of the journal Diabetes Care.

 

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which funded the research along with the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, defines the artificial pancreas as automated closed-loop control of blood glucose.

 

Prior to this study, artificial pancreas tests had employed laptops wired to continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps. The paper called this “a system limiting free movement and too cumbersome to be used beyond hospital confines.”

Dominique Dock's insight:

As much as type 1 diabetes treatment and understanding makes progress, type 2 diabetes, despite intensive research, seems to lag behind.

Both types create the complications and that's not widely known in the public.

Still, I'm not complaining that we will have devices that make life more comfortable for diabetic patients. Well done !

PS: I can't wait for the iWatch which will help us doctors to monitor the internal functioning of our patients. And given them personalised advice, based on measurements made at the same time !

How Smartphones Are Trying to Replace Your Doctor (But Can't Yet)

How Smartphones Are Trying to Replace Your Doctor (But Can't Yet) | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

For most of time medicine was a guessing game. Doctors, or witch doctors, or shaman would inspect a patient, stir a potion and hope it would work. With some notable exceptions, modern medicine isn't so different. The data collection—blood pressure, heart rate, weight, reflexes—is largely rudimentary. We're getting by, but technology can take us so much further.

 

Even technology that fits in your pocket.

 

In the past year or two (or three) iPhones and iPads have been a fixture in doctors' offices around the world. Why carry a clipboard when you could pull up records via Wi-Fi and type the information directly into the patient's medical record? Perhaps even more powerful is the idea that these devices can be collecting data all the time.

 

Smartphones are incredibly powerful tools for anything as simple as data mining to something so sophisticated as measuring a patient's sleeping pattern. There are apps that can help regulate your mental health, apps that can help you keep track of what and how much you eat. There are apps that can take your blood pressure and you blood sugar. There are even apps that help you cope with aging.

 

While an app can't cure a disease, some of the newer, more experimental medical apps can do truly extraordinary things. This technology can not only help you feel better; it can prevent illness by spotting symptoms early on.

 


Via nrip
Dominique Dock's insight:

Let's be prudent with this notion that spotting symptoms early on does make a meaningful difference in outcome, because, very often, it doesn't!

Data is not everything, even though I love trawling through it when I am with a patient.

nancygabor's comment, June 5, 2013 1:07 PM
Collecting data is one thing, understanding what it means and when to bring concerns to your doctor is another. if the smart phone is the glove, the hand is health literacy... they have to go together. Early adopters are likely to have better health literacy early on, but to gain the full benefits of sensor technologies in mobile consumer devices, we need to make interpretive information available to patients. We also need to reimburse physicians for the time they spend trawling through patient data. Dominique is an unusual leading thinker... most docs don't trawl without a real incentive.
nrip's comment, June 6, 2013 5:44 PM
Tools made from data are helping doctors, patients and healthstaff who are willing to be helped. With time tools will improve as those who are building them will mature in their techno-medical skills. As doctors learn to accommodate these tools in their practices, they will mature in their understanding of how tools can be used to improve outcomes as well as improve paradigms of care.

Building a Better App

Building a Better App | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Consumer health IT can dramatically impact patient care by facilitating such vital functions as medication management, remote patient monitoring, and tighter communication between patients and their care providers. The guide is particularly timely because in the next few years, health care providers will focus as never before on electronic linkages with their patients. Many hospitals and health systems have patient portals on the Internet, with access to rudimentary health record information, and perhaps the ability to e-mail physicians. Some offer mobile versions of those portals. But providers have so far been under no outside pressure to get patients to use those resources.

 

Patient-oriented health IT is officially on the national agenda through the federal “meaningful use” program, which gives billions in cash incentives to providers for using IT to improve care (and in 2015 is scheduled to start penalizing holdouts by reducing their Medicare payments). The most recent set of criteria for meaningful use, to be phased in starting in 2014, requires an active effort to link patients into the information loop. Not only do providers have to make patients’ information available to them online, they also have to show that at least 5% of the patients have accessed that information in a given year. That percentage is likely to increase with the next round of meaningful use requirements.

Interactions: The Doctor is Online

Interactions: The Doctor is Online | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Have you ever Googled a medical symptom? Posted in an online forum before visiting your general practitioner? Used social media to voice an opinion about a healthcare provider or speak about your personal experiences? For many people, turning to the Internet (especially social media) has become a natural way to seek quick answers and discuss medical matters, and the increasing reliance on “Dr. Google” has altered the way that people engage with clinicians.

 

In addition to changes in Internet usage and communication patterns within patient groups, a large number of clinicians have developed their own digital cultures and communities. In fact, medical communities are extremely active, and tend to make use of a large variety of communication channels. Through personal blogs, Twitter chats (e.g., MD Chat and #hcsm), and professional social media networks likeBMJ’s doc2doc, clinicians are increasingly talking online.

Our Intestinal Biota Never Recover from Antibiotics: Damage to Future Generations

Our Intestinal Biota Never Recover from Antibiotics: Damage to Future Generations | health and illnesses | Scoop.it
Aantibiotics destroy the gut biome with devastating effects on our ability to deal with infections and destroying our ability to absorb nutrients from food.

 

Speaking to ABC News, Blaser said:

 

"Antibiotics are miraculous. They’ve changed health and medicine over the last 70 years. But when doctors prescribe antibiotics, it is based on the belief that there are no long-term effects. We’ve seen evidence that suggests antibiotics may permanently change the beneficial bacteria that we’re carrying."

 

Notice that term, permanent. Without factoring in the potential risks in the casual use of antibiotics, it now looks like conventional medicine is creating several pandemics of some of the worst chronic diseases known.

Research Proving Vitamin C’s Therapeutic Value in 200+ Diseases

Research Proving Vitamin C’s Therapeutic Value in 200+ Diseases | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Vitamin C is generally considered to be an important “nutrient,” but its perceived value usually ends there. Only rarely does the public (and the medical profession) glimpse its true potential in the prevention and treatment of disease — and this because, by legal definition (in the US), only FDA-approved drugs can prevent, treat and cure disease.

 

This does not mean, however, that essential nutrients like Vitamin C cannot in fact prevent and treat disease, i.e. only because it is illegal to speak truthfully about something, doesn’t mean that that something isn’t true.

Is mobile health approaching its iPhone moment?

Is mobile health approaching its iPhone moment? | health and illnesses | Scoop.it

Mobile technology is experiencing a surge of advances in relation to the medical industry.

 

Technological advances once merely imagined in Sci-Fi flicks (think of Star Trek’s communicator, Bluetooth technologies, and even a quasi version of touch enabled computer screens) are being realized and even superseded thanks to modern innovation.

 

Mobile technology, in particular, is experiencing a surge of advances in relation to the medical industry. Research breakthroughs, advances in supporting technology infrastructure, and even substantial allocations of resources from private investors are realizing far reaching technological dreams, and then some.

 

Several weeks ago, Mike Lazaridis’ Research In Motion’s Blackberry Vice Chairman, (the maker of those once ubiquitous handheld wireless devices), launched a $97 million dollar Quantum Valley Investments fund to support innovation and entrepreneurs focused on creating non-invasive medical diagnostic equipment. The idea is simply to make “Star Trek’s” medical tricorder device for diagnosis a reality.

 

The push to go mobile has been years in the making and has, in many respects, been assisted by underlying communications technology and the utilization of what many in Silicon Valley have termed the social, mobile, web trifecta. Smartphones, applications, and social media have helped to drive mobile advancements in relation to consumer technology adoption, and impactful breakthroughs in medical technologies have been evolving as well.
