The list of anti-vax claims gets longer by the day, but none are supported by research (which is quite different from “search”).
Take a moment to think about their talking points, many of which refute each other.
First is was “MMR causes autism”.
1/
“MMR causes autism!” claim came from the ORIGINAL “paid pharma shill” who took money to falsify data on 12 kids. Dozens of real studies involving millions of kids proved that claim was false.
Then came “it’s thimerosal!”, which was never in MMR and was removed in 2001.
2/
Only multi-dose flu vaccine has Thimerosal as a preservative, which has also been shown to be harmless in the quantity in a vaccine.
Then it was “it’s mercury!” which people thought was a new argument but was really still the Thimerosal argument with a different name. 3/

Overnight I reached that tipping point of sickness that people with cancer and auto-immune diseases have to be concerned about. Now I am just praying that I won't have to go into hospital, again.
Hoping the NP will be able to circumvent that when she comes. 😭😷🤒
Please get your #FluShot, folks. Herd immunity protects everyone who can't get one.

And if you have had #cancer and chemotherapy and radiation--particularly if you had the latter for #breastcancer--talk to your doctor about getting a pneumonia vaccine in addition to the #FluShot.💉💉💉

Are you ready for the annual autumn #asthma spike in symptoms and exacerbations?

Happens every year, roughly 3 weeks after school starts.

Why? Schools are cess pools. Viruses = major asthma trigger.
Also weather changes, ragweed, mold contribute. Friday #Facts Thread⬇️
Important to prepare for autumn #asthma management by assessing current level of control AND having up to date prescriptions (home AND school) & treatment plan.

Asthma changes throughout the year & over time, which means treatment should be fluid to match needs.
#Asthma symptoms not well controlled?
-Assess current treatment, including technique & adherence
-Address comorbid conditions (allergies)
-Review environmental triggers & exposures

-THEN consider changing medication

I keep track of things and I like old books. The other day this old ledger caught my eye online so I bought it. I thought I could keep track of case notes. I like a little bit of history in my books.
It was interesting because it was the ledger from the Canada Southern Railway Line and had been used in 1877. It was mostly blank so I bought it. The ad mentioned that some pages had been used.
When it arrived, it had old book smell but it was in great condition. I pulled it open and noticed the perfectly written script and math scrawled on the inside cover.

Closing the loop on #Diagnostics #Tweetorial with example #AppleWatch #AFib #Screening. From a company website: "Atrial fibrillation is a silent killer. The heart arrhythmia causes more life-threatening strokes than any other chronic condition, and will affect 1 in 4 of us."
"But the sad fact is that atrial fibrillation often goes unnoticed: It is estimated that 40% of those who experience the heart condition are completely unaware of it."
Using #AppleWatch technology and #DeepLearning #AI #ML, a device algorithm can reportedly detect atrial fibrillation with high accuracy (c-statistic 93%).
