Researchers Compare Exercise, Drugs as Cardiovascular Treatments | News | The Harvard Crimson | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

Structured exercise programs may be as effective, or even more useful, than medication to treat cardiovascular conditions. The authors evaluated and synthesized the results of 305 previous studies to compare the benefits of drug and exercise regimens on disease outcomes.  

After identifying four conditions for which exercise has been studied as a preventive technique—coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and type-2 diabetes—Naci and Ioannidis compared the efficacy of drugs used to treat these conditions to previously-reported effects of exercise.

 They found that structured physical activity was more effective than drug use in the treatment and prevention of strokes, and equally effective in the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease and diabetes.  Diuretic drugs were more successful than exercise, however, in treating heart failure.

“[Our study] will trigger debate, which is really important,” said Naci. “In cases where we have evidence of exercise, exercise seems to do really well in comparison to drugs, but there are still a lot of instances where we don’t know how exercise fares against drugs.”

TREATMENT REGIMENS ARE TO BE INDIVIDUALIZED ACCORDING TO THE PATIENT'S DISEASE AND THE TREATMENT REGIMEN OUTCOMES. ACCORDING TO THE ABOVE STUDY THERE SHOULDN'T BE AN "OR".; TREATMENT REGIMENS MAY INCLUDE MANY PREVENTIVE AS WELL AS CURATIVE THERAPIES, BOTH PHARMACOLOGICAL AND NON-PHARMACOLOGICAL. AT THE END PATIENT/PERSON MATTERS. THERE SHOULD BE "AND" instead of "OR". OF COURSE THERE IS NEVER A MAGIC BULLET IN HEALTHCARE;THAT'S WHY THERE SHOULDN'T BE AN "OR" AS DR. BILAZARIAN HAS SAID.

3 Ways Big Data Is Changing Healthcare

3 Ways Big Data Is Changing Healthcare | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

Three ways in which big data is “revolutionizing” healthcare:

“Big data is increasingly being used by healthcare providers to identify patients at high-risk for certain medical conditions before major problems occur.” Providers can use big data to use predictive analytics to identify people and populations who are at risk. For example, the article references a health care system in Texas that is using data from clinical records and insurance claims to offer preventative services to people at risk for particular ailments 

 


“Big data is also being used to increase the quality of care received by patients.”Providers are using big data to create clinical decision support systems that help them identify errors before they are made and evaluate their own decisions.


“[Big data is] helping reduce the mounting costs of healthcare.” According to theSalon.com article, in one instance big data was used to find out which doctors were generating the highest costs for procedures. After reviewing actions which these doctors took, the provider was able to lower costs by reducing duplicative and unnecessary testing.

iOximeter monitors your heart-rate, is powered by your phone's headphone socket

iOximeter monitors your heart-rate, is powered by your phone's headphone socket | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

Connecting health-monitoring hardware to smartphones is a no-brainer. The phone does the heavy processing, offers up power and screen, and thus makes the hardware cheaper and more importantly , smaller. However, you still need to power the thing, which can be tough when you're trying to gauge vitals overnight or longer.

First Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator approved one year ago | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

One year ago the first Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator (S-ICD) System was approved by the FDA.  A defibrillator provides an electric shock to the heart (defibrillation) for the treatment of an abnormally rapid heartbeat that originates from the lower chambers of the heart (ventricular tachyarrhythmias)

There was great enthusiasm that this simpler to implant system might find significant adoption for patients that need implanted defibrillators.  Some patient groups, such as young patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy were considered to be good candidates for the features and benefits of this less invasive approach.  But, to date, in my practice, referring to several different arrhythmia specialists in eastern Massachusetts I have not seen one of these devices implanted.  The adoption is slow for a variety of reasons, but unfamiliarity and uncertainty about long term results are likely the biggest contributors to this slow commercial uptake.

If you are using toilet paper to clean after doing your business, you are not getting very clean. Toilet paper leaves behind fecal material with hundreds of thousands of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This can cause recurring infections, and worsen any medical condition you may have down there (vaginal itch or odor, hemorrhoids, pruritus ani, fungus itch) This is why health professionals agree that using water is the best way to clean. The best way to do this is by using a modern bidet"

Infographic: See how eHealth aids in home health care | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

In the US, 70 percent of residents over age 65 will need long-term care in their lifetimes. The good news is that eHealth can help in monitoring health conditions. The bad news is that home-based-care staffing and turnover issues jeopardize the care these patients need—things such as help bathing, dressing, eating, using the bathroom.

Did WHO promote vaccines in India not in use in other countries? | TwoCircles.net

Did WHO promote vaccines in India not in use in other countries? | TwoCircles.net | Vaccines: 'Safest of Medicines' or the 'Biggest Lie'? | Scoop.it

New Delhi : A leading Indian journal of medical ethics has charged the World Health Organisation (WHO) of promoting a vaccine in this country that has been discontinued elsewhere, following adverse reactions and deaths in children.

 

In a hard-hitting editorial piece, the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics (IJME) has accused WHO of promoting Pentavalent vaccine "by stating falsely that no adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) has ever been reported with the vaccine".

 

The journal claims this is contrary to facts.

For millennia, humans have survived and, absent war, famine, or other living conditions or practices that favor disease, thrived before the first 'vaccine' was introduced.

 

Moreover, the use of vaccination to provide disease protection is based on a theory, "the germ theory of disease", that does not explain, nor, until very recently, address the reality that human life depends upon our symbiotic co-existence with a variety of microbial organisms, some of which can also appear to be 'pathogenic' when, for whatever reasons, a given human body is 'sick'.

 

Unfortunately, to this day, the developers of vaccines do not understand exactly how the human immune system functions...

This is an interesting paper by Paul King, PhD 

Analytical Chemist, who is the Science Advisor to, and the current Secretary for, the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs. Dr. King documents, quoting the laws, that vaccines are not safe as they should be.

 

The US FDA is relinquent in their duty of assuring vaccine safety and the CDC compounds the problem by recommending wholesale vaccination.
