A study by the University of Southampton shows that several low-and middle-income countries, especially in Africa, need more effective child vaccination strategies to eliminate the threat from vaccine-preventable diseases.
Geographers from the University’s WorldPop group found diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (pertussis) vaccination levels in Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Mozambique and also in Cambodia, southeast Asia, fall short of the 80 per cent threshold recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). This means the potential for disease circulation and outbreak in these countries remains high….
Well now maybe they’re starting to look this “gift horse” in the mouth. White man speak with forked tongue.
1. There are many tools and strategies that aid nurses and other health care providers to identify solve and prioritize problems related to vaccination. These strategies can help in providing solutions specific to their health facilities. For example in Africa, parents run away with their children and stop them from receiving vaccines because of policies relating to opening a multi dose vial. This practice discourages families and community members and can prevent them from receiving the vaccine next time….
About 4 million children worldwide develop asthma each year because of inhaling nitrogen dioxide air pollution, according to a study published today by researchers at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH). The study, based on data from 2010 to 2015, estimates that 64 percent of these new cases of asthma occur in urban areas.
The study is the first to quantify the worldwide burden of new pediatric asthma cases linked to traffic-related nitrogen dioxide by using a method that takes into account high exposures to this pollutant that occur near busy roads, said Susan C. Anenberg, PhD, the senior author of the study and an associate professor of environmental and occupational health at Milken Institute SPH….
This might help alleviate the symptoms. But there’s no money in it:
Breastfeeding and childhood asthma: systematic review and meta-analysis.
… Using random-effects meta-analyses, we estimated pooled odds ratios of the association of breastfeeding with the risk for each of these outcomes. We performed meta-regression and stratified meta-analyses. We included 117 of 1,464 titles identified by our search. The pooled odds ratios were 0.78 (95% confidence interval: 0.74, 0.84) for 75 studies analyzing “asthma ever,” 0.76 (95% confidence interval: 0.67, 0.86) for 46 studies analyzing “recent asthma,” and 0.81 (95% confidence interval: 0.76, 0.87) for 94 studies analyzing recent wheezing illness. After stratification by age, the strong protective association found at ages 0-2 years diminished over time. We found no evidence for differences by study design or study quality or between studies in Western and non-Western countries. A positive association of breastfeeding with reduced asthma/wheezing is supported by the combined evidence of existing studies.
Bacteria in the human body are sharing genes with one another at a higher rate than is typically seen in nature, and some of those genes appear to be traveling — independent of their microbial hosts — from one part of the body to another, researchers report in the journal Scientific Reports.
The findings are the result of a molecular data-mining method initially conceptualized by Kyung Mo Kim, a senior research scientist at the Korea Polar Research Institute. University of Illinois crop sciences and Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology professor Gustavo Caetano-Anollés developed the approach with his former student Arshan Nasir, of COMSATS University Islamabad, Pakistan, who is currently a Distinguished Fellow at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
This computationally challenging method allowed them to identify instances of “horizontal gene transfer,” the direct transfer of genes between organisms outside of sexual or asexual reproduction.
“Horizontal gene transfer is a major force of exchange of genetic information on Earth,” Caetano-Anollés said. “These exchanges allow microorganisms to adapt and thrive, but they are likely also important for human health. There are some bacteria that cannot live outside our bodies and some without which we cannot live.”
“A better understanding of this phenomenon also will have significant public health value, since the emergence of multidrug-resistant pathogens as a result of the horizontal spread of antiobiotic-resistant genes has become a global concern,” Nasir said….
Of course this has no bearing on the question of injecting foreign DNA and RNA into the bodies of young children and pregnant mothers. And the GMO antibiotic-resistant gene factories from BT and roundup-ready corn somehow magically become irrelevant once you eat them.
People who still trust this genocidal, torturing, false-flagging, gangster establishment after all that has been revealed in the past 30 years have some serious psychological issues. Ignorance is not bliss and blind trust usually results in harm, as evidenced by the ongoing vaccination crisis.
(Natural News) Gun control fanatics are getting a slap in the face, as liberty-loving, gun-toting Americans refuse to comply with tyrannical magazine bans. In New Jersey, over a million gun owners have taken a stand by ignoring the state’s new high-capacity magazine ban. Power-hungry liberal politicians are clearly out of touch with reality if they expect law-abiding citizens to simply hand over their lawfully obtained munitions because Big Government said so.
From coast to coast, Americans are standing against tyranny by refusing to comply with overzealous gun magazine laws. In notoriously leftist states like California, Connecticut, New York and Vermont, citizens are ignoring government calls to turn in gun magazines, and many activists are taking steps to have magazine bans recalled entirely.
Indeed, there is nothing more American than rebelling against a government that no longer has your best interests at heart. Gun owners in overwhelmingly liberal states may as well be chanting, “No confiscation without representation.”
Refuse to comply
As Ammoland reports, citizens around the country are rejecting gun magazine bans almost entirely — no one is turning in their high-capacity magazines. New Jersey rolled out their magazine ban six months ago, and in that time, not a single citizen has offered up their munitions.
In the nearby states of New York and Connecticut, only about three percent of gun owners complied with similar “ban and confiscate” efforts.
Further north, the Vermont Supreme Court has just given the go-ahead to a lawsuit against the state’s ban on standard-capacity magazines. The measure was signed into law in the spring of 2018, and bans “long-gun magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds and handgun magazines with a capacity greater than 15.”…
Now that the media has been exposed for wrongly siding with the intelligence agencies, how will it handle Devin Nunes’s criminal referrals in Deep State-gate?, asks Ray McGovern.
Readers of The Washington Post on Monday were treated to more of the same from editorial page chief Fred Hiatt. Hiatt, who won his spurs by promoting misleading “intelligence” about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and suffered no consequences, is at it again.
This time he is trying to adjust to the fading prospect of a Deus ex Mueller to lessen Hiatt’s disgrace for being among the most shameless in promoting the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.
He is not giving up. When you are confident you will not lose your job so long as you adhere to the agenda of the growing Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank complex (MICIMATT if you will), you need not worry about being a vanguard for the corporate media. It is almost as though Hiatt is a tenured professor in an endowed chair honoring Judith Miller, the New York Times reporter who perhaps did most to bring us Iraqi WMD.
In his Monday column Hiatt warned: “Trump was elected with the assistance of Russian spies and trolls, which he openly sought and celebrated. But he did not (or so we are told) secretly conspire with them.” In effect, Hiatt is saying, soto voce: “Fie on former (now-de-canonized) Saint Robert of Mueller; we at the Post and our colleagues at The New York Times, CNN et al. know better, just because we’ve been saying so for more than two years.”
Times executive editor Dean Baquet said, about the backlash to the Times‘ “collusion” coverage: “I have no regrets. It’s not our job to determine whether or not there was illegality.” CNN President Jeff Zucker said: “We are not investigators. We are journalists.” (One wonders what investigative journalist Bob Parry, who uncovered much of Iran-Contra and founded this site, would have thought of that last one.)
Going in Circles
Hiatt’s circular reasoning is all too familiar. It is the kind a former director of national intelligence excels at when he’s not lying, sometimes under oath. For instance, James Clapper was hawking his memoir at the Carnegie Endowment last year when he was confronted by unexpectedly direct questions from the audience.
Asked about the misleadingly labeled, rump “Intelligence Community Assessment” (ICA) of Jan. 6, 2017, which he orchestrated, and which blamed Russia for interfering in the 2016 election, Clapper gave an ipse dixit response: The ICA simply had to be correct because that’s what he had told President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump.
In fact, that “Intelligence Community Assessment” stands out as the most irresponsible, evidence-free and at the same time consequential crock of intelligence analysis since the National Intelligence Estimate of Oct. 2002 claimed there was WMD in Iraq. Recall that that one was shaped by out-and-out fraudulent intelligence to “justify” an attack on Iraq six months later….
George Galloway has told RT that he is “shocked,” Julian Assange, has been arrested, claiming a great crime has been committed against the Wikileaks founder, insisting the Ecuadorian & UK govts should feel ashamed of such action.
Commenting on Assange’s arrest on Thursday morning, political firebrand, Galloway, told RT: “I’m very shocked…Julian Assange is a friend of mine, more importantly, a friend of truth, a friend of the people. He exposed great, great crimes and now another great crime has been committed against him.”
Shame on the Ecuadorian government, shame on the British government and shame on those that let this happen.
Assange was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has spent the last seven years, after Ecuador’s president Moreno withdrew asylum. Galloway insists undue pressure was most certainly put on Moreno to act on the long standing issue.
The agent of this crime is Moreno but the ultimate purchaser of this crime is the United States.
It comes only a day after WikiLeaks’ editor-in-chief, Kristinn Hrafnsson, claimed that an extensive spying operation was conducted against Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy. During an explosive media conference Hrafnsson alleged that the operation was designed to get Assange extradited.
The former Labour MP argues that the United States is “increasingly, belligerently and aggressively confronting people and states around the world – this is another big aggression.”
Wikileaks have tweeted, claiming Assange has been “arrested for extradition to the United States for publishing.”…
I’m sure the fake media is overjoyed that they won’t have to try to compete with the real thing any more. Back to evil as usual.
What will the satanic elite do with him? Torture him to death and eat him? The spotlight might make that difficult at least for the time being. But they have to make an example of him. Perhaps he’ll simply “get sick” and die. At least that would be the cover story. His mother had better demand an autopsy. I’m only half-joking. Actually less than half.
Mere mortals can hardly comprehend the level of depravity among the inbred gangster aristocrats of this world. But he helped expose it and for that, he’s practically a biblical prophet.
The U.S. is working to maintain its “international coalition” in order to prevent ISIS from reemerging, assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs, Kathryn Wheelbarger, revealed in an interview with The Washington Times.
According to Wheelbarger, U.S. military officials and State Department diplomats are trying get commitments from all 79 coalition members to continue the group’s work. The official said that an agreement to extend the “Defeat ISIS” mission will likely be finalized during the NATO ministerial meeting next June.
“We expect the threat to evolve, [and] the importance of the coalition is our priority,” Wheelbarger said in the interview that was released on April 9.
Last December, President Donald Trump made a decision to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria. However, a backlash from senior officials in his administration and the negative reaction from the mainstream media forced him to make a U-turn and accept to keep up to 400 troops in the war-torn country….
What. A. Racket. If they want to “defeat ISIS” all they have to do is withdraw funding for it.
