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.

Meet the doctor who says medications are killing you - Peter Gotzsche, founder of the Cochrane Collaboration

Meet the doctor who says medications are killing you - Peter Gotzsche, founder of the Cochrane Collaboration | health care &  health politics & infographics | Scoop.it

Many of our most commonly used drugs, from painkillers to antidepressants, are dangerous and are killing us off in large numbers, says a  leading researcher visiting Australia next week. 


Peter Gotzsche, a co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, the world's foremost body in assessing medical evidence, arrives in Australia on Monday for a whirlwind speaking tour warning Australians about their use of prescription medications. 


He estimates that 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side-effects of correctly used drugs. Similar figures are not available in Australia, although the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that 3000 people died after complications with medical and surgical care in 2012. 


"It's remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs," Professor Gotzsche, who heads the Nordic Cochrane Centre, told Fairfax Media ahead of his visit.

Sylvana Simon's curator insight, February 25, 4:26 PM

Scary but so true - as a registered nurse I have seen the negative effects of prescription drugs on health over and over and over again...of course they have their place sometimes, and in emergencies they can save lives. For most long term prescription drugs there is a price somewhere else in the body. I lost my father last year, and I know in my heart of hearts that his total compliance with medication prescribed for him by his well intentioned doctor, finally led to the complications which ended his life.

 

A doctor once told me a true story about a woman he knew in a nursing home that was dying - the whole family were called to be with her, and medication was ceased while they waited for her to die. For a few days she got worse each day and then better, and better, and better. So much so that she was able to leave the nursing home and go to live with family!!

Serbian Doctor: “I Had Cancer, Cannabis Oil Brought My Life Back”

Serbian Doctor: “I Had Cancer, Cannabis Oil Brought My Life Back” | health care &  health politics & infographics | Scoop.it

“I have never smoked a single joint in my life and I am an opponent of all drugs. Classical medicine is my calling. However, when I faced lung cancer I tried everything”, says the doctor. He claims to be cured by cannabis oil.


The fifty-year old doctor from Serbia had been detected with lung cancer with metastasis to the lymph nodes 6 months ago. Stage two of three. He began to use cannabis oil. He now fully supports the opportunity to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.
