Officials Cover Up Dangers of HPV Vaccine Declares Scientist

Emoji_u1f489.svgDr. Sin Hang Lee, MD, Director, Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory, has submitted an official, open-letter complaint to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan, alleging gross misconduct, malfeasance and what potentially amounts to criminal behavior to mislead the global public regarding the safety of HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix. This letter demonstrates that these officials knew that HPV vaccines cause an inflammatory reaction greater than other vaccines, yet reassured the public in official hearings and statements that the vaccines were safe.

What’s New in the Dietary GuidelinesUSDA_logo

The new dietary guidelines were release on January 7th and some might say they are confusing. While draft recommendations had suggested all Americans adopt more environmentally-sustainable eating habits by cutting back on meat, that advice was dropped from the final guidelines. I wonder who it was that influenced them to remove this information? Maybe the only big difference and good news on the new guidelines is encouraging people to eat less sugar. But other than that, they seem to be unchanged since they began doing the guidelines in 1980.

Obama Declares Emergency in Flint as Water Crisis Continues

Runoff_from_Excelsior_Geyser_to_Firehole_River_at_Midway_Geyser_BasinOn Saturday, President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Flint over contaminated water supplies, the Detroit Free Press reports. Such a declaration allocates up to $5 million in federal funds to the city. It also authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency to galvanize supplies and distribute water bottles, filters, and other supplies. The problem started in 2014, when a state official switched the city’s main water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River to save money. Research has found that the water in the Flint River is 19 times more corrosive than Lake Huron’s water, causing old pipes to degrade and leach lead into the water. The city switched back to the Lake Huron supply in October, but with the pipes already damaged, they could continue to leach harmful metal into the water supply.
