Where does your doctor’s allegiance lie? Does your healthcare professional listen to your needs and wants as a parent or are they nothing more than affiliate distributors for pharmaceutical companies? It was reported by independent journalist recently that some doctors offices are now demanding their patients sign an immunization contract. What’s an immunization contract you ask? The contract — created outside of law and denying informed consent — requires prospective patients to agree, by signature, to allow 25 vaccines to be injected into their child over a series of visits. Also uncovered in the same investigation, doctors can receive up to $225 per service achieved in the insurance provider category of “childhood immunization [combo 2]”.8244802.png

Questo è un gran pezzo di propaganda farmaceutica.
Addirittura il medico accusa l’Europa di non avere leggi che vietino la scuola ai non vaccinati e di essere diventata il “nuovo terzo mondo” per grado di vaccinazione della sua popolazione.
Inoltre ci svela che, dopo alcuni anni, l’azione del vaccino diminuisce lasciando scoperto un buon 20/25% di persone dall’immunizzazione (crediamo siano molti di più) per poi concludere l’articolo che il vaccino ha delle sue criticità.

Why college students keep getting the mumps — even though they’ve been vaccinated

College students are coming down with an illness most people think hasn't been a problem in the US for years: the mumps.

Three students at Butler University, two at Indiana University, and two at Kansas State University have been diagnosed with the mumps in the past few weeks. Most had been fully vaccinated against the disease, according to their universities.

Mumps cases in the US dropped dramatically after vaccination for the disease began in 1977. But the disease has been making a comeback in the past 10 years, ever since a historic 2006 outbreak mostly among students at Midwestern colleges:

[5-12-16] Today, the FDA is requiring labeling changes for antibacterial drugs called fluoroquinolones, including an updated boxed warning, stating that the serious side effects associated with fluoroquinolones generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinusitis, bronchitis and uncomplicated urinary tract infections who have other treatment options. For patients with these conditions, fluoroquinolones should be reserved for those who do not have alternative treatment options.

Including Zyprexa, Zyprexa Zydis, Zyprexa Relprevv, and Symbyax

[Posted 05/10/2016]

AUDIENCE: Psychiatry, Dermatology, Patient

ISSUE: FDA is warning that the antipsychotic medicine olanzapine can cause a rare but serious skin reaction that can progress to affect other parts of the body. FDA is adding a new warning to the drug labels for all olanzapine-containing products that describes this severe condition known as Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS).

A search of the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) database identified 23 cases of DRESS reported with olanzapine worldwide since 1996, when the first olanzapine-containing product was approved. FAERS includes only reports submitted to FDA, so there are likely to be additional cases about which FDA is unaware. One patient taking olanzapine experienced DRESS and died; however, this patient was taking multiple medicines that could also have contributed to death (see the Data Summary section of the Drug Safety Communication for more information).

Vaccination? Non merci

Distrust in vaccines is a growing problem in Europe, especially in France.

By 4/20/16, 3:00 PM CET Updated 5/3/16, 4:06 PM CET

This is the latest in a POLITICO special report on vaccines: the accomplishments, history, controversy and business challenges.

France’s health minister got more than she bargained for when she promised a nationwide debate on the benefits and risks of vaccination this spring.

This study estimates changes in reimbursements for orally administered anticancer drugs paid by commercial health plans from 2000 through 2014.

Prescription drug pricing and changes in prices for existing drugs have been under intense scrutiny recently. For anticancer medications, high drug prices have the potential to affect access and adherence to therapies and increase financial burden for patients. Given the rapidly evolving drug pricing landscape, it is important to evaluate recent pricing for anticancer medications. This study’s objectives were to estimate changes in reimbursements for orally administered anticancer drugs paid by commercial health plans from 2000 through 2014, focusing on reimbursements during the year of product launch and changes in reimbursements over time.

New York University research scholar and law professor Mary Holland recently addressed the United Nations at the 25th International Health and Environment Conference.

Professor Holland has been one of the lone voices in the U.S. addressing the legal ramifications of removing parental rights to informed consent for childhood vaccines. She has previously written for Health Impact News on this issue. See:

Killing the Messenger: U.S. Vaccine Law and Policy

Professor Holland sees major civil rights issues involved in government vaccine policies that remove informed consent rights to refuse mandatory vaccinations. She reminds the United Nations that history has shown us the results of such overt government intrusion into personal medical rights. World-wide human rights legislation has been put into place to protect individuals from government intrusion into medical abuse, starting with the Nuremberg Code just after the atrocities of Nazi Germany after World War II.
