Anybody Care To Guess How America Continues To Suffer From Previously “Eradicated” Diseases ?

 

 

 

 

   The CDC has provided us with the answer to the above question and we are certain that it comes as no surprise to readers not blinded by political correctness . We quote from the CDC’s Measles FAQ page:

 

 

” Q: Has measles been eliminated from the United States?

A: Yes. In 2000, the United States declared that measles was eliminated from this country. The United States was able to eliminate measles because it has a highly effective measles vaccine, a strong vaccination program that achieves high vaccine coverage in children and a strong public health system for detecting and responding to measles cases and outbreaks.

Q: What does “measles elimination” mean?

A:Measles elimination is defined as the absence of continuous disease transmission for 12 months or more in a specific geographic area. Measles is no longer endemic (constantly present) in the United States.

Q: If measles is eliminated, why do people still get it in the United States?

A: Every year, measles is brought into the United States by unvaccinated travelers (Americans or foreign visitors) who get measles while they are in other countries. They can spread measles to other people who are not protected against measles, which sometimes leads to outbreaks. This can occur in communities with unvaccinated people.

  Most people in the United States are protected against measles through vaccination, so measles cases in the U.S. are uncommon compared to the number of cases before a vaccine was available. Since 2000, when measles was declared eliminated from the U.S., the annual number of people reported to have measles ranged from a low of 37 people in 2004 to a high of 644 people in 2014. “

    To us it is inconceivable that a massive influx of unscreened , unvaccinated illegal aliens does not play a significant role in the spread of infectious disease , especially when one takes note of the fact that these illnesses always seem to rear their heads in urban schools where the illegal population is highest .

    Our leaders have nothing to fear though , there are damn few illegals attending their children’s fancy private schools .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enterovirus Spreads Across The Nation

 

 

 

 

 

 

” There is another virus sweeping the country. The enterovirus mostly strikes children and causes a severe respiratory illness. In the past three weeks, it has spread from 12 states to 42 states plus D.C.

  Nine-year-old Jayden Broadway started struggling for breath on a Friday afternoon. His mother Melissa Lewis says by the next day, she was rushing him to a Denver-area emergency room.

  Lewis says it’s “petrifying” to your child unable to breath. She says, “It is absolutely the scariest thing ever to see your child not be able to take a breath.”

  Doctors told Lewis her son had contracted the enterovirus D68. For most patients, the virus causes symptoms of the common cold. In children like Jayden with Asthma, symptoms can be more severe. Still, he was lucky. Doctors at the Children’s Hospital Colorado have treated 10 children who came down with polio-like symptoms.”

Meanwhile USA Today is reporting on the first deaths attributed to the virus …

 

” Federal health officials are investigating whether a rare respiratory virus sweeping the country contributed to the deaths of four people, including a 10-year-old Rhode Island girl who was hospitalized.

  So far, no deaths have been directly attributed to enterovirus D68.

  Doctors in several states have reported that some children hospitalized with breathing problems caused by the bug have developed paralysis in their arms and legs.

  As of Wednesday, 500 people in 42 states and the District of Columbia were confirmed to be sick with EV-D68, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Almost all infections have been among children, many of whom had asthma or a history of wheezing.

  Earlier in the week, the CDC reported 277 infections in 40 states; two weeks ago, the tally stood at 160 infections in 22 states. “

 

 

Here is a picture of ten year old  Emily Otrando of Rhode Island , who died of the virus .

How A Deadly Disease Could Spread Worldwide

 

 

 

 

 

” A team of experts have created a video showing how a deadly virus would spread across the world.

  As the world becomes increasingly connected, the spread of disease too becomes more mobile.

  With over three billion passengers travelling by air every year, researchers have found that diseases and viruses can travel far faster and more effectively through busy airports than around cities in the same country.

  Scientists at Berlin’s Humboldt-Universität, ETH Zurich, Northwestern University and Robert Koch Institute developed a mathematical theory showing how a deadly virus would spread.”

 Scientists Discover That Healthy Cells Follow Diseased Ones Around The Body, Paving The Way For A Cure

 

 

” Scientists believe they may have finally discovered why cancer spreads – a finding which could be vital in developing a cure.

In a major breakthrough which could save millions of lives, a study has identified a mechanism known as the ‘chase and run’ effect, where diseased and healthy cells follow each other around the body.

The discovery, by researchers at University College London, may lead to a revolutionary therapy that blocks the action and keeps tumours in one place.

The researchers claim it will be ‘relatively easy’ to stop the ‘chase and run’ effect.

Cancer claims more than 150,000 lives each year in the UK, but study spokesman Professor Roberto Mayor said: ‘Most deaths are not due to the formation of the primary tumour.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

22 Things to Outlaw Before We Ban Assault Rifles

 

 

House-Fire

 

” 4. Fire

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there are an average of 375 deaths each year caused by arson, which is more than the number of people killed by all rifles. We should probably outlaw lighters, matches, and gasoline to fight the problem.”

 

 

” By the logic of gun-control proponents, firearms are the problem and not the people misusing them. Therefore, we have a lot more banning to do in addition to outlawing assault rifles, which Joe Biden promised was “just the beginning.”

In 2011, all rifles combined accounted for 323 murders, while shotguns were used in 356 murders; this in a country of 300 million people. So it only stands to reason that if banning rifles and shotguns are an effective way to fight crime, then handguns need to go too: they were used in 6,220 murders. Once citizens allow the premise that objects are responsible for crime and not people, there’s no end to the absurdity of government bans.

For further context, here are some other leading causes of deaths in the United States, according to the CDC: Heart disease: 597,689; Cancer: 574,743; Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080; Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476; Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859; Alzheimer’s disease: 83,494; Diabetes: 69,071; Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476; and Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, governments have been responsible for over 200 million murders. Simply put, governments cannot be trusted; either in the present or in the future. That is why we have constitutionally limited government that is restricted from disarming the public.”

 

Soaring Number Of Career Women ‘Killed By Alcohol’ And Figure Is Rising Faster Than Men

 

 

” The number of alcohol-related deaths among career women has soared over the past decade and is now rising faster than among men, figures reveal.

For women in high-flying roles such as chief executives, doctors and lawyers, the number of deaths caused by drinking has risen by 23 per cent.

Research last year showed that middle-aged professional women are drinking more alcohol than teenagers for the first time. Over-55s drink more than any other age group and are now the biggest burden on the NHS.

Professor Ian Gilmore, chair of the UK Alcohol Health Alliance, said rates of almost all serious diseases in the young and middle-aged have fallen as we live longer, but liver disease is rising ‘dramatically’.

He said: ‘These figures are just the tip of the iceberg, as they are the cases where alcohol is specifically mentioned on the death certificate.

‘When you look at diseases where alcohol is a major factor, such as oesophageal and throat cancer, or strokes, the true toll is much larger. When I became a liver consultant 30 years ago, to see a woman dying with alcohol-related liver disease was really rare.

‘Today it’s not common, but every liver specialist will have seen women in their late 20s or early 30s dying of alcoholic liver disease.’ “
