The RED Talk on The #Business and #Science of #Healthcare is now live! Still time to join us at ruralpolicy.group/red.
The next big issue facing NICE & #healthcare will be our relationship with the European Medicines Agency after Brexit; it will impact our #medicines research, trials. We could see a dramatic reduction in research, access to medicine and disrupt the supply of meds - @steve_mccabe
The British #taxpayer makes a phenomenal contribution to the development of new #drugs - but these can then be prohibitively priced. We need to improve access to new medicines and there is a question around cost, access and funding. @steve_mccabe

#vaccine and inoculation history. Newspapers in 1913. What was really happening outside of the “The Science is settled” script?
Here is a newspaper article from December 17,1913 (over 100 years ago) in regard to “Serum therapy” another term for inoculations/vaccinations.
The highlights of this article include:
*How the medical class has gained a monopoly of medical hierarchy healing to only their system. That this system is intolerant and tyrannical that it compares to the Dark Ages which crushed human life.
*That the AMA is striving for 20 years (since 1893) to obtain a national seat of power in Washington to control the National bureaus of Health dominated by doctors who will be paid by the government. That millions of government money go into the pockets of political doctors.

Our article on the origin and health status of first-generation Africans from the Viceroyalty of New Spain is out now in @CurrentBiology! disq.us/t/3o8nra4 Here’s the #thread in case you can’t make the complete read:
These African individuals were first noted by @MezaAbigail and colleagues to be not Native Americans and found in a hospital which was dedicated to care exclusively for the indigenous population of the Viceroyalty of the #NewSpain
Here’s a look at the excavation site: (from: arqueologiamexicana.mx/mexico-antiguo…)

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image

#Thailand has decided to list #COVIDー19 as 1 of top 14 dangerous communicable #diseases in country. Others on list include #smallpox, #Ebola #SARS. Doing so will mean government can order patients/people suspected of being infected with #coronavirus be #quarantined, investigated ImageImageImage
#Thailand authorities can also order venues like markets, offices, schools to shut temporarily if officers suspect #COVID19 #coronavirus infection in any location. #Thai #DPM, also #Health Minister #Anutin made this decision today. Thailand cases remain at 35. (Pics by govt) ImageImageImageImage
#Thailand #DPM & #Health Minister says listing #COVID19 as 1 of 14 communicable diseases doesn't mean epidemic out of control in nation. Insists it's meant to ready medical staff to handle disease in timely/effective way to prevent further community widespread if situation arises ImageImage

Very cool to see this hypothesis/paper w/ good examples of how conditions involving #microbiome/persistent infection may, at least to some extent, be communicable. It is indeed a very important consideration for public #health that I have called for myself over the past decade
2/ In that sense I wouldn’t personally call it a “radical new hypothesis.” A similar hypothesis formed the backbone of my graduate thesis and is already supported by a large body of evidence. Here’s a 2014 paper where our team goes into the topic: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/24882… Image
3/ We created this “wheel of co-morbidity” to show how often patients w/ 1 chronic condition develop a 2nd or 3rd - supporting a role for #microbiome-driven modulation of host metabolic/genetic pathways in the #diseases, w/ examples of how they involve communicable components Image

With #Halloween approaching, what haunts you? I often worry about how quickly #animals are going extinct, and especially #frogs. Here's some of the ways your support can help me prevent then from becoming #environmental ghosts: patreon.com/MyFrogCroaked #FridayFeeling #FrogFriday
Did you know? Many baby #frogs (tadpoles) act as “river lawn mowers” by grazing on algae and plant material that falls into rivers. Their presence helps protect clean water which people and #wildlife both depend on. #FrogFriday
Also, #frogs may help control the spread of human #diseases spread by #insects, like #malaria, dengue & Zika. The tadpoles of some frog species are carnivorous & kill mosquito eggs & larvae. Keeping frogs healthy can help keep people healthy too patreon.com/MyFrogCroaked #OneHealth

@CNNSotu Oddly, you discuss #eugenics in America in the 1920s, but you never mention #MargaretSanger, the founder of @PPFA, and her approval of #GermanEugenicSterilzation, #KKK, and other efforts to eliminate the production of offspring by the #unfit.
I say, "oddly" with respect to your omission because Sanger's love affair with #eugenics ran so deeply through her activism that it constituted a part of the masthead of her "Birth Control Review."
Sanger didn't pull punches about the intended use of #eugenic #sterilization:

"There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take off the burdens of the insane and the feeble-minded from your backs."

This is an extremely informative article on the healthy human blood #microbiome 👉 “although a contentious concept, evidence for the existence of a healthy human #blood-microbiome is steadily accumulating.” frontiersin.org/articles/10.33… ImageImage
The authors also 👉 “address the matter of #contamination, citing the influence of contaminants on the interpretation of blood-derived microbial datasets”
Despite such challenges the team 👉 “encourages researchers to investigate this unique [blood] #microbiome, as it promises to hold the potential to facilitate both the #diagnosis and improved understanding of the onset of numerous human #diseases.”

Disillusionment? No. 👉 Just last year, @Stanford’s Steven Quake identified over 3000 previouly undiscovered #viruses, #bacteria and fungal organisms in the #blood of immunocompromised subjects☝️Using cell-free #DNA sequencing that accounted for contamination...
Then concluded the paper by stating that the novel #organisms 👉 “...have potential consequences for human #health. They may prove to be the cause of acute or chronic #diseases that, to date, have unknown etiology…”☝️What hope for #microbiome-based therapies! ImageImageImageImage
Also, as #microbiome researcher, I am incredibly encouraged by the explosion of human #phage + #virome research in just the past years (+ associated tools for novel #virus identification) 👉 Plus, better #archea-targeting methodologies like those used here:biorxiv.org/content/early/… ImageImage
