Vaccination studies

I am posting few links collected in the course of on-line reading. They are by no means complete or definite but a place to start. I will be adding to the list and will include more screeenshots (if the links are paywalled) as we go.

New Study: Hepatitis B Vaccine Triples the Risk of Autism in Infant Boys

Quote:

To begin with, it is unscientific and perilously misleading for anyone to assert that “vaccines and autism” have been studied and that no link has been found. That’s because the 16 or so studies constantly cited by critics of the hypothesis have examined just one vaccine and one vaccine ingredient.

And, the population studies themselves have had critical design flaws and limitations.

The current US childhood immunization schedule calls for 28 injections with 11 different vaccines against 15 different diseases by two years of age. Of those 11 vaccines, only the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) shot has been studied in association with autism, (although a CDC study of an MMR-plus-chickenpox vaccine did show that the risk for febrile seizures in infants was doubled.) Meanwhile, those 11 vaccines contain scores of ingredients, only one of which, thimerosal, has ever been tested in association with autism.

cereal-free diet with vit D suppresses dental caries in children

.
By an order of magnitude, as shown in the following intervention study done on young children age 5-6 over 6 months:


Remarks
ON THE INFLUENCE OF A CEREAL-FREE DIET RICH IN VITAMIN D AND CALCIUM ON DENTAL CARIES IN CHILDREN
BY MAY MELLANBY AND C. LEE PATTISON, The British Medical Journal, MARCH 19, 1932





Summary:

1. A group of children averaging 5.1 years of age were given a cereal-free diet rich in vitamin D and calcium for a period of six months. The teeth of the children were defective in structure (hypoplastic), and much active dental caries was present at the beginning of the investigation.

2. Initiation and spread of caries were almost eliminated by these diets, and the results were better than those of the previous investigation in which-the vitamin D alone was increased in a diet containing bread and other cereals.


Quotes:


They indicate that a diet rich in vitamin D and calcium and devoid of cereals has greater inhibitory and curative effects on dental caries than any previously tested. Thus the new carious points observed to develop during the feeding period were only 0.05 per child as compared with the previous best result of 0.2 per child. The figure 0.05 is so small that it probably falls within the margin of error of this type of observation, and new caries may be considered, therefore, to have been suppressed.
...
The tests do not indicate that in order to prevent dental caries children must live on a cereal-free diet, but in association with the results of the other investigations on animals and children they do indicate that the amount of cereal eaten should be reduced, particularly during infancy and in the earlier years of life, and should be replaced by an increased consumption of milk, eggs, butter, potatoes, and other vegetables. They also indicate that-a sufficiency of vitamin D and calcium should be given from birth, and before birth, by supplying a suitable diet to the pregnant mother. The teeth of the children would be well formed and more resistant to dental caries instead of being hypoplastic and badly calcified, as were those in this investigation.

Comment

Want healthy teeth? Don't eat cereals, better yet eat high animal fat low carb diet with no wheat. I  haven't been to and had no need to use a dentist since 1998. I am 62.

"give us our daily bread" - on second thought - no thanks!

how corporations use scientists to manipulate the public

.
The lawsuit and a verdict against Monsanto described in the article below illustrates the way large corporations use scientists to manipulate public opinion and to hide the inconvenient facts. I expect similar outcomes when the corporations and activists behind "Global Warming/Climate Change" and "Cholesterol/Fat Theory of Heart Disease" will be brought to trial in the similar fashion.

Monsanto ordered to pay $289m as jury rules weedkiller caused man's cancer

Quotes:

Johnson’s lawyers argued over the course of a month-long trial in San Francisco that Monsanto had “fought science” for years and targeted academics who spoke up about possible health risks of the herbicide product.
...
In the extraordinary verdict, which Monsanto said it intends to appeal, the jury ruled that the company was responsible for “negligent failure” and knew or should have known that its product was “dangerous”.

“We were finally able to show the jury the secret, internal Monsanto documents proving that Monsanto has known for decades that ... Roundup could cause cancer,” Johnson’s lawyer Brent Wisner said in a statement.
...
Johnson’s case was particularly significant because a judge allowed his team to present scientific arguments. The dispute centered on glyphosate, which is the world’s most widely used herbicide. The verdict came a month after a federal judge ruled that cancer survivors or relatives of the deceased could bring similar claims forward in another trial.

During the lengthy trial, the plaintiff’s attorneys brought forward internal emails from Monsanto executives that they said demonstrated how the corporation repeatedly ignored experts’ warnings, sought favorable scientific analyses and helped to “ghostwrite” research that encouraged continued usage.
...
Another Roundup cancer trial is scheduled to begin in the fall in St Louis, Missouri. According to Johnson’s lawyers, Monsanto is facing more than 4,000 similar cases across the US.

"Ghostwrite" research means that the corporations hired and paid some scientists to publish falsified or incomplete material in scientific journals in order to portray the company in a favorable light or to obfuscate the wrong-doings.

The following letter outlines the tactics employed by the corporation to manufacture a false outcry in the media and rally the public opinion against the whisteblowers and organisation (in this case IARC / WHO ) that have published damaging facts.

How Monsanto Manufactured ‘Outrage’ at IARC over Cancer Classification

As a side note I find it amusing that the similar to the above-described public-opinion manipulation techniques have been employed since 2016 in the English language media to manufacture an artificial anti-Trump and anti-Republican 'outrage', known as "Trump-Derangement Syndrome". :)

salt and cardiovascular risk debunked

.
It was a fake theory! Fake - I like this word.

A Canadian study, just published in The Lancet:
Urinary sodium excretion, blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and mortality: a community-level prospective epidemiological cohort study
Andrew Menteet al., VOLUME 392, ISSUE 10146, P496-506, AUGUST 11, 2018


Quote:

The association between mean sodium intake and major cardiovascular events showed significant deviations from linearity (p=0.043) due to a significant inverse association in the lowest tertile of sodium intake (lowest tertile <4.43 g/day, mean intake 4.04 g/day, range 3.42-4.43; change -1.00 events per 1000 years,...

Sodium intake was associated with cardiovascular disease and strokes only in communities where mean intake was greater than 5 g/day.

Halite (rock salt) from the Wieliczka salt mine,


Note: "inverse" association means that lower sodium INCREASES the rate of disease. In this case the cutoff threshold for the inverse relation is about 4g per day. The recommended daily dose of sodium by the fake (I love it) medical authorities is about 2g/day. Also, the usage of the unit "minus one event per 1000 years" has to be interpreted such that statistically there is one event less than the average, per 1000 patients per year rather than having to wait 1000 years for one patient event.

Lancet - A lot of what is published is incorrect

.
Offline: What is medicine's 5 sigma? by Richard Horton, Published in "The Lancet" 11 April 2015

Quote

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices. The apparent endemicity of bad research behaviour is alarming. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world. Or they retrofit hypotheses to fit their data. Journal editors deserve their fair share of criticism too. We aid and abet the worst behaviours. Our acquiescence to the impact factor fuels an unhealthy competition to win a place in a select few journals. Our love of “significance” pollutes the literature with many a statistical fairy-tale. We reject important confirmations. Journals are not the only miscreants. Universities are in a perpetual struggle for money and talent, endpoints that foster reductive metrics, such as high-impact publication. National assessment procedures, such as the Research Excellence Framework, incentivise bad practices. And individual scientists, including their most senior leaders, do little to alter a research culture that occasionally veers close to misconduct.

Diabetes T2 reversal by diet

SARAH HALLBERG: Don’t manage diabetes, reverse it


Quote:

Diabetes is reversible. That’s the exciting conclusion of a study I’m leading at Indiana University Health.
Two hundred and sixty-two patients with type-2 diabetes recently completed one year of a clinical trial examining the impact of a low-carbohydrate diet, which limits foods like grains and pasta while boosting consumption of healthy fats like avocados and butter. The diet didn’t restrict calories.
...
A full 94 percent of patients on the low-carb intervention have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for insulin. For six in ten patients, average blood sugar levels fell so low that technically, they had reversed their diabetes.
...
With conventional treatment regimens, according to a study in Diabetes Care, only 0.1 percent of patients achieve complete remission.

Carbohydrates are killing us

"Carbohydrates are killing us"
By Eric Thorn - (cardiologist affiliated with the Virginia Hospital Center)- Sunday, July 8, 2018

Quote:

Consider a report published last year in The Lancet that studied nutrition among more than 135,000 people across 18 different countries — making it the largest-ever observational study of its kind. The researchers found that people who ate the least saturated fat — about the same amount currently recommended for heart patients — had the highest rates of heart disease and mortality. Meanwhile, people who consumed the most saturated fat had the lowest rate of strokes.

Quote

Lead author Dr Marcia Otto, from the University of Texas, Houston, said: 'Our findings not only support, but also significantly strengthen, the growing body of evidence which suggests that dairy fat, contrary to popular belief, does not increase risk of heart disease or overall mortality in older adults.

'In addition to not contributing to death, the results suggest that one fatty acid present in dairy may lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly from stroke.'

Dietary guidelines in the US and UK recommend people people opt for low or no-fat dairy, however, the researchers warn such options are often high in sugar, which can drive heart disease.

Red meat halves the risk of depression

.

Recently announced study:

Red meat halves risk of depression

Wiki Red Meat 

Quote:

Experts admitted surprise at the findings because so many other studies have linked red meat to physical health risks. The team made the link after a study of 1000 Australian women. Professor Felice Jacka, who led the research by Deakin University, Victoria, said: "We had originally thought that red meat might not be good for mental health but it turns out that it actually may be quite important. "When we looked at women consuming less than the recommended amount of red meat in our study, we found that they were twice as likely to have a diagnosed depressive or anxiety disorder as those consuming the recommended amount. "Even when we took into account the overall healthiness of the women's diets, as well as other factors such as their socioeconomic status, physical activity levels, smoking, weight and age, the relationship between low red meat intake and mental health remained.

Artemisia Annua Sweet Wormwood - anti-cancer

.

Ancient Chinese Salad Plant Transformed Into New Cancer-killing Compound

Quotes:

The artemisinin compound takes advantage of cancer cell's high iron levels. Artemisinin is highly toxic in the presence of iron, but harmless otherwise. Cancer cells need a lot of iron to maintain the rapid division necessary for tumor growth.

Since too much free-floating iron is toxic, when cells need iron they construct a special protein signal on their surfaces. The body's machinery then delivers iron, shielded with a protein package, to these signals proteins. The cell then swallows this bundle of iron and proteins.

Artemisinin alone is fairly effective at killing cancer cells. It kills approximately 100 cancer cells for every healthy cell, about ten times better than current chemotherapies. To improve those odds, the researchers added a small chemical tag to artemisinin that sticks to the "iron needed here" protein signal. The cancer cell, unaware of the toxic compound lurking on its surface, waits for the protein machinery to deliver iron molecules and engulfs everything -- iron, proteins and toxic compound.

Once inside the cell, the iron reacts with artemisinin to release poisonous molecules called free radicals. When enough of these free
radicals accumulate, the cell dies.

"The compound is like a little bomb-carrying monkey riding on the back of a Trojan horse," said Henry Lai, UW bioengineering professor and
co-author of the study.

The compound is so selective for cancer cells partly due to their rapid multiplication, which requires high amounts of iron, and partly because cancer cells are not as good as healthy cells at cleaning up free-floating iron.

"Cancer cells get sloppy at maintaining free iron, so they are more sensitive to artemisinin," Sasaki said.

Recovered raw data of old study undermines 40y of dietary dogma

.

SciAm article: Records Found in Dusty Basement Undermine Decades of Dietary Advice
Raw data from a 40-year-old study raises new questions about fats
By Sharon Begley, STAT on April 19, 2017


Quote:

Ramsden, of the National Institutes of Health, unearthed raw data from a 40-year-old study, which challenges the dogma that eating vegetable fats instead of animal fats is good for the heart. The study, the largest gold-standard experiment testing that idea, found the opposite, Ramsden and his colleagues reported on Tuesday in BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal).

Although the study is more than just another entry in the long-running nutrition wars—it is more rigorous than the vast majority of research on the topic—Ramsden makes no claims that it settles the question. Instead, he said, his discovery and analysis of long-lost data underline how the failure to publish the results of clinical trials can undermine truth.
...
The coleader of the project was Dr. Ancel Keys, author of the Seven Countries Study, Time cover subject, and the most prominent advocate of replacing saturated fat with vegetable fat. “The idea that there might be something adverse about lowering cholesterol [via vegetable oils] was really antithetical to the dogma of the day,” Bob Frantz said.

His father, he said, “was always committed to discovering the truth. He would be pleased this is finally coming out.”


From The Telegraph "Modern dunce's cap"



I beg to differ. I doubt if Dr. Ivan Frantz would be proud of publishing the truth, because he could have but he didn't! I think he was afraid of the truth! Like many academics, intellectuals and most people I knew worked with.   Not only Dr. I. Frantz kept the study's most important data unpublished but also actively obfuscated it by publishing a misleading partial summaries and whitewashed watered-down inconclusive "conclusions".

Half-truth = full lie!


Because of Dr. Ivan Frantz' and other fake scientists' failure to publish the truth, What followed was 40-more years of suffering by millions of people from preventable diseases, due to bad dietary advise and corporate self-served food marketing that was based on the academically-supported half-truth, lies and distortions!

United Stated needs no external enemy - it is being destroyed by their own luminaries and the establishment through half-truth, lies and deception.

Bob Frantz, Dr. Franz's son, who rediscovered the hidden records and got them published, can't really feel proud of his father, but he definitely deserves to be proud of himself and be praised for bringing the truth! He is also lucky to have survived his father's bad diet at home, as a child.

Forbes: majority scientists consensus - not supporting Global Warming crisis!

.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/02/13/peer-reviewed-survey-finds-majority-of-scientists-skeptical-of-global-warming-crisis

Quote:

It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.

Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists (summarized here and here) revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.

According to the newly published survey of geoscientists and engineers, merely 36 percent of respondents fit the “Comply with Kyoto” model. The scientists in this group “express the strong belief that climate change is happening, that it is not a normal cycle of nature, and humans are the main or central cause.”
