Flu Vaccines Can Make Influenza Worse

Flu Vaccines Can Make Influenza Worse | health care &  health politics & infographics | Scoop.it

As documented by a new study, getting a flu vaccination can result in coming down with a more virulent influenza. This phenomenon was noted during the swine flu pandemic-that-wasn’t a couple of years ago, but pooh-poohed by skeptics.

In the study[1] published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, pigs were given a universal flu vaccine of the type currently under development. They developed a more virulent form of influenza that readily turned into pneumonia when exposed to a strain similar to the variety used in the vaccine.

This is the phenomenon of "immune enahncement" - which is also, incidentally, responsible for people who have had dengue getting dengue haemorrhagic fever after getting infected with a related strain of virus, when the immunity to the first virus is not complete, or protective.

New US Patents Could Signal The End Of Pesticides & GMOs

New US Patents Could Signal The End Of Pesticides & GMOs | health care &  health politics & infographics | Scoop.it

Humanity is facing a a major crisis: our immediate environment is being riddled with pesticides, making us unhealthy faster than we can study the effects. In addition, these pesticides are contributing to a massive reduction in our bee population and a general decline in soil health.


Paul Stamets, the world’s leading mycologist, filed a patent in 2001 that was intentionally given little attention. In the words of pesticide industry executives, this patent represents “The most disruptive technology that we have ever witnessed.


The biopesticides described in the patent reveals a near permanent, safe solution for over 200,000 species of insects, and it all comes from a mushroom.


After what is called “sporulation” of a select entomopathogenic fungi (fungi that kill insects), the area becomes unsuitable for whatever insect(s) the fungi are coded for.
