Let's talk about "national emergencies."
There are THOUSANDS of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in this country. Sisters, daughters, mothers, human beings that disappear without a trace. Where is the declaration over that crisis? #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIR
In a country determined to place nationalism at the forefront of domestic and foreign policy, we have a shocking number of homeless veterans. In states like Arizona, the number of #veteran suicides is 90.4 per 100,000. kdminer.com/news/2019/feb/…

An Israeli pharmaceutical company is claiming it will have a “complete cure for cancer” within the next year.

The company is Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies (AEBi), and based on the claims of its board chairman Dan Aridor, the treatment it’s working on is revolutionary.
“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks, and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor told The Jerusalem Post. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

0/ The #cryptocurrency/#blockchain ecosystem is finishing the week in a flurry!

Below, I've condensed 19 of Friday's #crypto developments into one single #Twitter thread. All for your convenience. Enjoy!
1/ 🗽 New York State's D.F.S. granted both @LibertyX (fiat-to-#bitcoin service) and @RobinhoodApp (#crypto exchange) a #BitLicense to operate their respective businesses in the state of #NewYork. The latter also received a money transmitter license. dfs.ny.gov/about/press/pr…
2/ 📊 Social, peer-to-peer user #data network @3Boxdb has partnered with @AlethioEthstats to deliver the first #Ethereum block explorer with built-in social profiling functionality.

Can't wait to give this a try. Such a neat, value-adding integration for the budding #web3 space!

0/ We're currently tracking at 40°C (104℉) here in #Melbourne, yet even that pales in comparison to the heat we're seeing in the #crypto/#blockchain space over the past ~24 hours.

What a day! Below are 22 developments that caught my eye.
1/ 🍑 Prominent full-service #blockchain technology co. @BitfuryGroup today announced a #Bitcoin #LightningNetwork-oriented product bundle called @Lightning_Peach.

Consumers, merchants, developers; there's LN-enabled solutions for all! Read more below. medium.com/meetbitfury/bi…

My latest in @sciam: How does #ClimateChange harm our #health today and threaten it tomorrow? Let me count the ways... THREAD (1/n)

#BeyondIceAndPolarBears
#TheFaceOfClimateChangeIsYouAndMe

1. The frequency, intensity, and duration of #ExtremeWeather events (heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, floods, storms) are increasing, with some of the first and worst impacts occurring in least-developed countries, whose people have contributed least to climate change. (2/n)
2. As average temperatures continue to rise, so will heat-related disorders. One shocking thing I've learnt is that an unforeseen example of human #ClimateCanaries has emerged in Central America , where 20,000+ sugarcane workers have died from chronic kidney disease. (3/n)

I have spent the last few years trying to rethink #mhealth. As we work to lessen #stigma and fear I ask everyone to keep an open mind, give feedback, and join me as I delve into some unique hypotheses. 1/
This started with my sphere of mental health. (Pinned) . I don’t believe true “normal” exists and feel everyone has issues that fit within the sphere. A dx comes because of observations that are inherently flawed & variable due to relative perceptions. 2/
I use the word “flawed” because none of us can read minds, therefore, there is no objective way to truly know exactly what someone is going through or how extreme their suffering is. This is one reasons #mhealth pros have such a difficult job. 3/

announcing this week's topic - #validity of dementia diagnosis, and how does it relate to use of administrative databases for #dementia research!
1/n bit of basic #epidemiology first: Gold standard measures are used to assess the validity of alternative measurement #epitwitter
2/n BUT in #dementia research there is no clear gold standard --> so the question remains - what do we typically ise as the "gold standard" and what does it say about the alternative =administrative dabatases measure? Stay tuned for more!

was recently asked if I had any writings to explain why Singal's past articles on trans health & children are flawed/biased. in this post, I compile my critiques (+ others) of those articles - specifically, the ones highlighted in the photo: patreon.com/posts/19542136
if you have time for a long-read, and really want to understand the many omissions & mischaracterizations of gender-affirming approaches to #trans #health by Singal et al., this is the piece I'd most recommend: medium.com/@juliaserano/d… #transgender #LGBTQ #children #psychology
...btw I have more in the pipeline. since mainstream media are not inclined to pay writers to pen articles defending gender-affirming approaches these days, I am funding this largely via my Patreon, so please consider supporting me there! patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…

Artificial Intelligence & Health: On my way to a round table on how the UK should plan, manage and grow its capability. Let me know your views to share. #AI #health #ehealth #mhealth @OfficialNIHR @NIHRIOUK

My personal views in 4 tweets (I have many more shared over coffee!):
1) Create world leading annotated datasets (with the right governance) to build #AI tools to deliver value back to the #NHS these are vital to ensure the quality of outputs and also dataset for us to standardise understanding effectiveness. A #UKBioBank for data?
2) Use these datasets to create a world leading regulatory environment to ensure value back to the #NHS The lack of regulation of AI prevents it being used in the #NHS before we even start with local implementation and change management (which is vital).

I have been thinking quite a bit about the issues raised by the BMJ article below (& others) and the language of #commercialdeterminantsofhealth or #CDoH
It is so important that #socialscientists , including #anthropologists participate in these conversations
It is so important that we think about the role of #industry interests in shaping #health & #socialscientists can help frame these conversations in broader terms

In response to the recent @NYTimes editorial on cannabis and as a committee member on the @theNASEM #cannabis and #cannabinoids report we did NOT conclude that cannabis causes schizophrenia.

What Advocates of Legalizing Pot Don’t Want You to Know nyti.ms/2Rw2ngF
We found 1) an #association between cannabis use and schizophrenia and 2) an #association between cannabis use and IMPROVED cognitive outcomes in individuals with psychotic disorders (not mentioned in the editorial).
Since the report, we now know that genetic risk for schizophrenia predicts cannabis use, shedding some light on the potential direction of the association between cannabis use and schizophrenia.

glancing at my feed, it seems as though somebody somewhere has published yet another ROGD-moral-panic piece. so I am re-upping this essay, feel free to share: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #psychology #children #gender #ROGD
...there should be a law that, if you decide to write or publish an alarmist #ROGD piece, then this paragraph from the WPATH Standards of Care gets permanently tattooed to your forehead... #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #health #psychology #children #gender
...btw @JennyBoylan just wrote a wonderful response to the aforementioned ROGD piece, in the NY times no less! nytimes.com/2019/01/08/opi…

Is it difficult going vegan?
Reply with your best tips on how to #GoVegan.

#Vegan #plantbased #nutrition #health
Education is key, start with watching vegan health & animal agriculture documentaries.

Try the various vegan meat & dairy alternatives supermarkets have to offer.

Transition slowly by having 1 vegan meal a day, then 2 then all 3.

Quick transitions try Veganuary or Challenge22.
Calcium isn't an issue whilst vegan, you can get plenty by drinking 1-2 cups of fortified plant milk daily, also by eating plenty of leafy greens, beans, seeds, and tofu.
Remember to supplement Vitamin D especially in winter months, to ensure adequate adsorption of calcium.

OK. So there's a piece (no paywall) on @JAMA_current today by Freddy Abnousi (head of #healthcare @facebook), @hmkyale, +@DrJRums "Social Determinants of Health in the Digital Age: Determining the Source Code for Nurture." jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/… #cyberwoke /1
Before you think this is any kind of good news, remember that @Facebook has successfully incinerated democracy in several places, in the process turning all of us into meat puppet data cash machines (we don't get the cash) and now ... #cyberwoke /2
In addition to knowing where we are, who we're with, what we like, and what we think, they want our health data? How big of a FUCK NO, NO WAY, OMFG HAVE YOU LOST YOUR EVERLOVIN' MIND will we have to raise to kill this? #cyberwoke /3

This #ManufactureOfDoubt script has been used by the #formulaindustry from the very beginning. You can see it from 19th century advertisements through today. The script is a #social one, exactly as @prof_goldberg says - and where #culturalideologies & #politicaleconomy intersect.
Perfect for some #anthropological analysis. In case of #formulamarketing, the social script for #ManufactureofDoubt exploits & enhances existing #culturalideologies of anxiety abt #breastfeeding which have been around since late 19th cent among white, upper class women & spread
#Biomedicalization of #childbirth & #infantfeeding played a key part in deepening these anxieties & facilitated the #normalization of #infantformula by mid 20th cent, esp via medical experts & hospital practices that entailed routine separation & scheduled feeding

just wrote a rebuttal to that horribly misinformed @PsychToday piece from last week: "Mass Psychogenic Illness: The Latest Make-Believe Cause of #Transgender Identity" – it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!

re: two misconceptions about my new essay: 1) I did not address certain claims made in the @PsychToday article (re: "peer clusters", social media influence, etc.) b/c I already addressed these in depth in my #ROGD essay: medium.com/@juliaserano/e… #transgender #psychology #LGBTQ

And violà! @GenomicsMed, the China-Iceland connected private company that wants to sequence the genome of 400k people in Ireland doesn't believe it should need consent for research on biobank samples. Hot off the presses.

But sure it's all about the JOBS. And the $$$.
The HSE's chief government information officer wants a 'Health Information Czar' for the future governance of health-related data. "Having a ‘one-stopshop’ will allow for increased transparency and joining-up of the different data repositories that currently exist."
