Cervical Cancer Vaccine Adverse Reactions: Gardasil

More serious adverse reactions are coming to light in young women vaccinated against cervical cancer with Gardasil, including multiple sclerosis conditions, nerve conduction problems, blood clotting conditions, limb tingling, numbness & loss of sensation, collapse, paralysis. tinnitus, cold sweats, etc. The vaccine protects against only 2 strains of the wart virus, HPV , although there are >100 strains of which at least 13 cause cancer. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, "In 90% of cases, your body's immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within 2 years." This is true whether the infection is the type thta can cause cancer or warts. In the Journal of the American Medical Association, editorial said:"It is important to emphasise that the vaccine is supported by limited efficacy and safety data." With the rush to inject Australian girls with a drug of uncertain efficacy & safety, it is important to keep the risk of cervical cancer in perspective. A recent US study concluded that <0.25% of American women were at risk. There are other risk factors as well for cervical cancer: smoking, malnutrition, weak immune system, the Pill, multiple sex partners, sex without a condom. Perhaps it would be better to address these lifestyle changes than injecting with a vaccine of serious health risks. The only ones benefiting from this rush for a mass immunisation are the CSL shareholders.

Antibiotics during Pregnancy can Increase the Risk of Birth Defects

Taking antibiotics during pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects, according to a study conducted by researchers from the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities and published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
Penicillin was associated with a higher risk of a kind of limb malformation, while erythromycin, cephalosporins and quinolones were all associated with a higher risk of one or two specific abnormalities each.
The researchers suggested that women avoid taking nitrofurantoins or sulfonamides when possible.

Beware Agave Nectar Health Food Hype

Many people interested in staying healthy have switched to Agave as a safer "natural" sweetener. They want to avoid well documented dangerous sweeteners like HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) but are unaware that agave is actually WORSE than HFCS.
So just what is agave? Blue agave is an exotic plant growing in the rich volcanic soil of Mexico. In spite of manufacturer's claims, agave "nectar" is not made from the sap of the yucca or agave plant. The agave starch is converted into fructose-rich syrup using genetically modified enzymes and a chemically intensive process involving caustic acids, clarifiers and filtration chemicals. Agave syrup is neither healthy nor natural. Agave syrup is not low calorie - it has about 16 calories per teaspoon, the same as sucrose (table sugar).
Other Reasons You Should Steer Clear of Agave
Poor quality control: There are very few quality controls in place with most products coming from Mexico.
Pesticides: There are also concerns that some distributors are cutting agave syrup with corn syrup & have unacceptably high pesticide residues
Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF): HMF has potential toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects.
Nutrient Void: Agave syrup is not a whole food.
Addictiveness: Agave is highly concentrated sugar and highly addictive.

Why aren't Infertile Couples Tested for Coeliac Disease?

Millions of people have celiac disease, but most don’t know they have it, in part because symptoms can be so varied. It is an often overlooked digestive disorder that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, is eaten.

Infertility seems to be more common in women with untreated celiac disease. Other gynecological and obstetrical problems may also be more common, including miscarriages and preterm births.

For men, problems can include abnormal sperm -- such as lower sperm numbers, altered shape, and reduced function. Men with untreated celiac disease may also have lower testosterone levels.

The good news is that with a simple blood test and proper treatment with a gluten-free diet and correction of nutritional deficiencies, the prognosis for future pregnancies is much improved.

Fish Oil Retards Ageing

Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil preserve the genetic "fuse" that determines the lifespan of cells, say scientists. Research suggests that omega-3 has a direct effect on biological ageing by slowing down the rate at which protective caps on the ends of chromosomes shorten.

Love Really Can Cure a Broken Heart

It’s already known that oxytocin exposure brings greater heart health but researchers have just found that oxytocin infusion reduces cell deaths in an injured heart & reduces inflammation that can slow healing. Other than going into labor, oxytocin is produced via skin-to-skin contact with another human being - simple touch and closeness. Contact with animals has some beneficial effect as well.

ADHD? No, it's NDD!

Experts say as kids today are losing touch with nature, they're also suffering from serious, long-term consequences, now named Nature Deficient Disorder, NDD. Would you be more likely to find your child playing outdoors or sitting in front of a TV? On average, Australian children spend 6 hours a day playing videogames, watching TV, or sitting in front of a computer & less than 5 minutes outdoors -- a complete switch from a generation ago. Why the change? As outdoor play among children has dropped 50% over the last 20 years, health problems are on the rise. Child obesity rates are > 2x - an epidemic that could cost the health system $100 billion each year. Studies have also linked time outdoors to better grades, concentration, self-esteem and imagination & it's even been shown to reduce symptoms of ADHD.
