"The only thing different about that day was that shot" - Girl with sore throat given HPV vaccine, dies hours after leaving doctor


Meredith Prohaska
A disturbing mystery - and a tragic end to a very young life. A 12-year-old Waukesha girl is dead - and there is seemingly no reason why - except perhaps, one.

Meredith Prohaska was an active, fun-loving 12-year-old girl one minute. A few hours later - she was unresponsive on the floor. In between that time, there was a trip to the doctor - and now, Prohaska's family wonders if that's what killed her.

"I'm a tough guy. I can take a beating - but this has ripped a hole in my heart," Prohaska's father, Mark Prohaska said.

Prohaska is describes as a girl who loved to be active - swimming and playing basketball while in sixth grade at Butler Middle School.

She loved to take part in activities at Horeb Springs Park.

"Vibrant. Full of life. She was our sunshine. Everywhere I go, everything I do - I see her," Rebecca Prohaska said.

Comment:

Vaccines are neither safe nor effective in disease prevention. Make sure you do the research and arm yourself with knowledge before consenting to another shot for your children. Don't end up being another statistic.

Wonderful news. Great news. Absolutely great!

An UNDISCLOSED NUMBER of people who had contact with the Ebola virus are coming to Charlotte, North Carolina.

It was dumb to bring the infected to Atlanta, now it's become really REALLY dumb, bringing people over here to wait 21 days to find out , why not a quarantine boat, or overseas?!

The question about Ebola that no one can answer

question marks
How in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus? That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer. The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening. We are just assured that Ebola "is not airborne" and that getting infected "requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person". If this is true, then how have more than 170 health workers caught the disease? These workers are dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus. So how is this happening? I could understand a handful of "mistakes" by health workers, but this is unlike anything that we have ever seen in the history of infectious diseases. These health workers take extraordinary precautions to keep from getting the virus. If it is spreading so easily to them, what chance is the general population going to have?

Four new Ebola cases in Nigeria connected to consultant with Liberian Ministry of Finance

Patrick Sawyer
Well, this isn't good:

The World Health Organization reported four new cases of Ebola in Nigeria Friday, all of them among health care workers and others who had contact with American consultant Patrick Sawyer, a spokesman said.

"They're all contacts of Patrick Sawyer," said Gregory Hartl, a spokesman for the WHO in Geneva. He said all are health care workers, cleaners or others at the hospital where Sawyer was taken after he collapsed in the airport following a flight from Liberia to Nigeria. "We know that he had contact with very few people at the airport," Hartl said.

Sawyer died in Lagos, Nigeria, on July 25. The Liberian-born American citizen collapsed in the Lagos airport after displaying symptoms of Ebola on his flight there. He had been planning to visit the U.S. weeks later to be at the birthday parties for his daughters.

The fact that four people who had contact with Sawyer have Ebola is worrisome because it raises the specter of transmitting the disease beyond Lagos, Hartl said. But the Nigerian ambassador to the U.S. said there have been no Ebola cases outside of the city.

Sawyer is one of three Americans known to be infected with Ebola. The other two - Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol - were flown back to the U.S. for treatment at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. And the outbreak has created some concern in the U.S.; earlier this week, Mount Sinai Hospital in New York was testing a patient for Ebola, sparking fears, only for it to turn out that the patient didn't have it.

Comment: "A man whose death is believed to be Nigeria's first in a still-widening Ebola virus outbreak was planning a trip to Minnesota to visit his family next month, his wife said. Patrick Sawyer, a 40-year-old consultant with the Liberian Ministry of Finance, was en route to a conference when he collapsed upon arrival in Lagos, Nigeria, the Associated Press reported."

Obesity expert Jimmy Moore lost 180 pounds on the ketogenic diet.
The ketogenic diet has proven effective for accelerating weight loss, but also manages epilepsy, reverses type 2 diabetes, and prevents heart disease, dementia and cancer.

In the book, Keto Clarity, author Jimmy Moore outlines the many health benefits of the ketogenic diet and how he used the low-carb, high-fat eating plan to lose 180 pounds.

In researching his book, Moore spoke to a respected panel of experts, including renowned cancer scientist Dr. Thomas Seyfried, whose decades of research indicate the ketogenic diet starves cancer and beats chemotherapy for most cancers.

Moore's co-author is nationally recognized obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, author of the bestseller New Atkins for a New You.

Over the years, Dr. Westman has helped thousands of morbidly obese people lose hundreds of thousands of pounds by following a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet.

The LCHF diet also helped Westman's patients reverse their type 2 diabetes, improve their cholesterol profile, and dramatically reduced their risks of heart disease.

Pfizer lawsuits mount due to Lipitor side effects

Pfizer lawsuits mount due to Lipitor side effects as more women file claims against the gigantic pharmaceutical company. So far, close to 1,000 cases, representing over 4,000 women were filed against the huge drug manufacturer. The women allege that Pfizer did not give the public proper warning about the side effects of Lipitor.

Pfizer lawsuits mount due to Lipitor side effects

Lipitor became available to the public in 1996; it is the best-selling pharmaceutical drug, ever. Globally, sales of Lipitor are close to 130 billion dollars. It is prescribed to around 29 million patients in the United States.

Within the last five months, American women filed lawsuits in federal court against Pfizer. The women claim Lipitor caused them to develop Type-2 diabetes and Pfizer failed to warn them. Lawsuits increased substantially after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided a warning in 2012 linking statins, including Lipitor, to incidents consisting of "a small increased risk of raised blood sugar levels and the development of Type 2 diabetes" and reports of memory loss. Presently, the FDA substantiates that the benefits of statins and Lipitor outweigh the risks.

Statins help in lowering cholesterol levels; however, like most medication, they can cause some potentially dangerous side effects, such as liver damage, neurological side effects, muscle problems, increased blood sugar, or Type-2 diabetes. Pfizer stated they plan to fight the lawsuits and they deny any liabilities.

Stress in the home & parental depression linked with childhood asthma

Researchers from the Rush University Medical Center have found that stress in the home and depression among parents increase the risk of asthma and asthmatic attacks among children.

The researchers - part of the Project CURA: The Community United to Challenge Asthma - investigated and studied the homes of Puerto Rican children between the ages of 5 and 18 years old with asthma within the city of Chicago. The research was funded by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health.

Curiously, Puerto Rican children have a far greater risk of asthma than do white, black or hispanic children. An asthma study published in the Journal Pediatrics in 2006 found that 26% of Puerto Rican children had been diagnosed with asthma between 1997 and 2001 while only 12% of white children, 16% of black children, 12% of hispanic children had been diagnosed with asthma during the same period. This means that Puerto Rican children have more than double the asthma rates of most other children.

One little piggy had birth defects: Is Monsanto's Roundup to blame?

© Jan Ingemansen / Flickr
A pig farm in Denmark. A renewed charge against Monsanto's Roundup pesticide is being led by a Danish pig farmer who realized the chemical's effects on his livestock.
One little piglet was born with only one large eye. A second piglet was missing an ear. A third piglet had a large hole in its skull. A fourth piglet had a monstrously huge "elephant tongue." A female piglet was born with testes. Still others had malformed limbs, spines, skulls and gastrointestinal tracts.

The pigs in question belonged to a Danish pig farmer. For three years he had fed his pigs ordinary, non-genetically modified soy. When he ran out, he bought the cheaper genetically modified (GM) soy pig feed. His herdsman, unaware of the feed switch, immediately noticed that the pigs lost their appetite and that the piglets developed diarrhea. Even worse was the sudden and shocking increase in birth defects. The farmer, eager to understand the cause, had 38 of the deformed pigs euthanized and tested for glyphosate, the herbicide used on the GM soy. The results were published in the April 2014 issue of the Journal of Environmental and Analytic Toxicology. The samples of lung, liver, kidney, brain, gut wall, heart and muscle all tested positive.

GMO Golden Rice in Asia: Problem, reaction, solution

GMO protest

Asia's dependency on rice cultivation for both subsidence and income is intuitively understood. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates the agricultural population of lowland rice cultivation in Asia to be over 470 million - larger than the entire population of the United States. Improvements in rice cultivation would stand to lift hundreds of millions from debt and poverty. Conversely, the disruption of rice cultivation would threaten to mire hundreds of millions in deeper debt, inescapable destitution, and all of the negative socioeconomic implications that follow.

Asia's rice farmers produce between 1-2 harvests a year depending on the climb and climate of any given region. They do so to sell their rice, generally to mills who in turn sell the final product to exporters or for domestic consumption. Out of each harvest, rice farmers keep a portion for their own consumption, but the vast majority of what they grow is for income.

The UK-based Rice Association claims there are up to 40,000 species of rice, with a wide variety of characteristics suitable for different markets and uses. Rice farmers grow those which local, national and regional markets are best suited to move. In nations where subsidies are offered for rice crops, cheap, easy to grow varieties are chosen. More desirable or exotic species are grown by independent farmers who have developed their own cooperative with millers, marketers and exporters. The rice Asians eat depends on both economic and market realities. The impoverished eat what is cheapest and most easily available, but not necessarily that which is healthiest.
