Avis du Conseil Scientifique du @CNGE_France "Pas d’aspirine pour les patients à risque cardiovasculaire en prévention primaire" #Aspirine #Prévention #CNGE @HAS_sante @Sante_Gouv 1/
Pendant de nombreuses années, plusieurs #recommandations institutionnelles internationales et nationales, sociétés savantes, et communautés d’experts ont préconisé de prescrire de l’aspirine à faible dose (75 à 325 mg/j) aux patients à risque cardiovasculaires (CV) 2/
en prévention primaire. L’argumentaire scientifique allégué était que ce principe actif réduisait l’incidence des événements CV ischémiques. Cependant, ces opinions reposaient sur des analyses (et méta-analyses) conduites sur des critères secondaires, et/ou post-hoc et/ou 3/

The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem. Good to see recovery is on the way! -|- "In spite of advances in preventive care and reduction in untreated tooth decay, significant oral health disparities exist"

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ They still think a toothbrush is merely an applicator for #fluoride. Which is wrong. Manual disruption and disorganization of plaque prevents tooth decay.

#COVID19 is the headline, but there is a lot more to talk about, especially with the #7thReplenishment coming up.…
a 🧵...
#TB is front and center, because it was worst hit by #COVID19. Resources in pulmonary health diverted from TB towards Covid19 – doctors, beds, GeneXpert machines and cartridges – on top of everything else.
#HIV was impacted too, especially #prevention and #testing. #Malaria fared better, probably in part because countries with endemic malaria were hit by #COVID19 latter, though testing did drop.

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.

decision-makers in the ministries and administrations have still not understood how infections with the #coronavirus occur. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (#DFG, German Research Foundation) is now countering this
with an information paper that explains the correlations in simple terms.
It clearly states that it is ⚠️#negligent to rely solely on window ventilation in educational institutions.⚠️

Why is someone who likely does not menstruate a sudden expert on #womenshealth to identify a WOC seeking #data #quality & #integrity as the women?
"Respecting" social science = using respectable methods, not online surveys.
What you see in the tweet and the "study" is ego, defensiveness & flagrant Dunning-Kruger effect for #womenshealth, #menstrualhealth, #COVID19, #vaccine #research.

The best way to demonstrate the value of a field is to be consistent on #quality not…
Academic language on #online #survey #data:
"systematically assess carelessness in a crowdsourced sample" Denial that quick & dirty is poor #quality is an odd use of time & ineffective. One could better defend one's merit, by delivering #quality per best practices and standards.

What's that gang? You say it is #FluorideFriday? Why yes, yes it is! -|- "#Fluoride is highly effective at preventing caries and its use over the last 50 years has transformed dental health.”…
Ireland again. -|- "In 2002, a ‘north-south’ survey showed a substantial decline from 1984 in dental caries in both fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities in the Republic of Ireland, and in the non-fluoridated population of Northern Ireland."
"Reducing the underlying cause of disease through the restoration of normality, rather than adding a protective factor, is a more radical approach, and does not come with the risk of unwanted effects such as dental fluorosis.”

In-depth individual interviews of 25 #women #workers at the Ambassador Bridge produced #breastcancer risk understandings & agency narratives.

Kathy said: “put us all together, and pretty soon you have just got lots of stories that all have the same ending.”

A thread

The research captures & explains layered & multifactorial influences on women’s narratives of #breastcancer risks & related agency and to see how #health and health knowledge are constructed in a #nested set of relationships.

Multiple information sources influenced #women’s #breastcancer risk and agency narratives.

Social, cultural & experiential information were all included.

#Workplace & #environmental exposures & socio-cultural aspects of work & environment were critical to the narratives.

Serving up some hot cognitive dissonance here. -|- "Although dentistry has long been identified as being far more preventive-oriented than most other areas of medicine, the emphasis on disease treatment is still the predominant activity of most dentists."
The problem with #Dentistry and #Prevention in a nutshell. -|- "In contrast, if the dentist is accomplishing the preventive procedures, the overhead is enormous, and the practice may not have adequate revenue."
Ditto. Treatment ≠ Prevention, no matter how you phrase it. -|- "What preventive orientation can the dentist have? The following procedures can provide preventive characteristics to your restorative treatment."

The #G5Sahel summit had a revealing media echo in some major German news outlets that tell you quite a bit about the problems of #Germany's public discourse on the #Sahel and its #stabilization engagement in general. A thread. 1/14
First of all, there is little attention. Neither of the two major German public broadcasters ARD & ZDF mentioned the summit in their flagship programmes @tagesschau and @heutejournal.
(there was a good text by @dunjasadaqi on Tagesschau's website) 2/14…
The public radio station @DLF had a short news item. It noted French calls for "fairer burden-sharing" in the military mission and then noted: "Germany is also active there. But the Bundeswehr does not participate in military missions." 3/14…

(Thread) Comment faire pour que les hommes arrêtent de violer? On n'avancera pas sans éducation sexuelle, ni sans prévention précoce de la violence. Les programmes existent, ils devraient être obligatoires. J'explique. 1 #educsex #CommentFairePourQueLesHommesCessentDeVioler
Il y a un an et demi j'ai passé du temps avec les équipes du Planning familial de Marseille et j'ai eu la surprise de découvrir deux programmes dont personne ne parle. Le premier, appelé PRODAS, est soutenu par l'ARS dans les écoles de quartiers populaires. 2/

Yes, the #vaccine rollout is slow, uneven, not matched to need. "Botched"? That is a bit too strong. Much blame to go around.

American #healthcare is built for silos, turf, acute care, reactive..not #populationhealth #publichealth #prevention. It shows. Why is anyone surprised?
And #MedTwitter, despite your hashtags & publications, when it comes to real life actions inside departments, hospitals, or even on Twitter, all you all do is turf, ego, cliques, us vs them, etc. I am unimpressed. Build *systems* Yes #impostersyndrome makes you crave validation.
I am a #pediatrician and if you need validation, I've got a whole box of stickers for you. I will even let you choose your own sticker. How is that? Because, yes, you are special. You matter. You are wonderful. Happy?

Then after that, could we get 💩 done?
