Major New Issues Surfacing - vaccines are causing more virulent forms of the very illnesses they are supposed to eradicate | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Bill Gates spoke to Sanjay Gupta on CNN in February 2011, saying that skeptics of vaccines are killing children.  

 

But 2011 was to be a year in which Gates’ own polio vaccine program in India paralyzed 47,500 children and those paralyzed died at twice the rate of those infected by wild polio.  

 

Gates’ eradication program has two problems...

eMedToday's curator insight, May 28, 2013 8:01 PM

Mayo Clinic is the gold standard for social media and using technology for mhealth. Here is a good review of what they are doing

 

"The clinic’s adoption of iPhone, iPad, and custom in-house apps reflects the Mayo Clinic’s commitment to the latest advances.

With more than 15,000 iOS devices on the clinic’s network, building apps for this platform was a priority.

“iPhone, iPad, and apps make communication easier. We’re providing real value to our staff, but also ultimately to our patients.”

Consumers have moved past ingredient lists and are now focused on seeking out non-genetically modified and sustainable “farm to table” products that can be traced back to local and regional farmers and producers, according to a new survey. Third-party certifications and heightened media coverage are helping to drive interest in sustainable meat, poultry and seafood. About seven in 10 shoppers used package labels or in-store signage to learn about the brands they were buying.

Mucus found to harbor a previously unknown human immune system | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Though not something people like to ponder, the purpose of mucus as a protective barrier that keeps underlying tissues moist and traps bacteria and other foreign organisms is well known. However, researchers at San Diego State University (SDSU) have now discovered that the surface of mucus is also the site of an independent human immune system that actively protects us from infectious agents in the environment.

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

Research Proving Vitamin C’s Therapeutic Value in 200+ Diseases | Health and Wellness | 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.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:44 PM

This isn't true only in the US. Medical laws all over the "civilized" world forbid promoting a food as medicine. 

Only the proprietary chemicals pharma produces are eligible to cure or prevent ... insane in view of the documented facts. 

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, May 28, 2013 2:52 AM

Vitamin C is perhaps the best option in preventive care and certainly a proven treatment method. From treating lethal snake bite to treating cancer, it has never failed if administered in appropriate dose.

WHO - Health literacy and health behaviour | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Health Literacy has been defined as the cognitive and social skills which determine the motivation and ability of individuals to gain access to, understand and use information in ways which promote and maintain good health. Health Literacy means more than being able to read pamphlets and successfully make appointments. By improving people's access to health information and their capacity to use it effectively, health literacy is critical to empowerment.
