Jill Stein May Not Be Anti-Vax, But She's Pushing A Dangerous Anti-Vax Theory

Green party candidate Jill Stein is a medical doctor, but she’s got some unorthodox views about an issue most of her peers and other experts find uncontroversial: the vaccine regulatory process. In a video interview with The Washington Post last Friday, she said that while vaccines have played an important role in keeping us healthy and safe, there are legitimate concerns about how those vaccines are approved and regulated.  “I think there’s no question that vaccines have transformed public health and have been absolutely critical in ridding us of the scourge of many diseases: small pox, polio, etc. So vaccines are an invaluable medication,” Stein said. “Like any medication, they also should be — what shall we say? — approved by a regulatory board that people can trust.” The comments mirror statements she made during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” forum in May, when she described corporate influence over U.S. vaccine regulation as “foxes... guarding the chicken coop,” claiming regulatory boards are “routinely packed with corporate lobbyists and CEOs.” (Stein also seemed to suggest that in an “unheard of” situation, the U.S. doesn’t allow medical exemptions to its vaccination program; in fact, all states offer medical exemptions.) While Stein is not strictly “anti-vaccine,” she is promoting a narrative that the vaccine regulation process in the U.S....

In this study, we retrospectively investigated the relationship between the intraoperative reduction quality and the prognosis such as the posttraumatic osteoarthritis to help surgeons achieve better functional outcomes for this high-energy transsyndesmotic ankle fracture dislocation. From January 2015 to February 2019, 31 patients (average 37.6 ± 9.4 years with 19 male and 12 female) diagnosed with the Logsplitter injury were treated by ORIF procedure and enrolled in our study. Particularly, nine vital radiographic parameters including medial clear space, talocrural angle, superior clear space, tibiofibular clear s...

Conclusions: For the prediction of in-hospital mortality risk in patients with pulmonary embolism managed in intensive care unit, the psoas muscle area value has a merit to be used among the routine diagnostic procedures after further studies conducted with different severity of pulmonary embolism.

We present the case of a patient with a large, partially cystic intrathyroidal parathyroid adenoma which was initially identified as a malignant thyroid nodule. We discuss the caveats that present in these rare cases and the important clinical and histological features that aid in the final diagnosis. In the case of our patient the cytological similarities between thyroid malignant cells and parathyroid cells, in combination with the negative sestamibi scan, resulted in a more invasive surgery than that a single parathyroid adenoma would require. Clinicians need to be vigilant in terms of the similarities between parathyro...

CONCLUSIONS: Arabinofuranose ‐derived18F PET radiotracers can be synthesized with high radiochemical purity. Our study showed absence of bacterial accumulation for 5 ‐substitued analogs, a finding that may have mechanistic implications for related tracers. Bothd‐2‐18F ‐AF andl‐2‐18F ‐AF showed sensitivity to most gram‐negative and gram‐positive organisms. Future in vivo studies will evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of these radiotracers in animal models of infection.

By SAURABH JHA, MD In a physician WhatsApp group, a doctor posted he had fever of 101° F and muscle ache, gently confessing that it felt like his typical “man flu” which heals with rest and scotch. Nevertheless, he worried that he had coronavirus. When the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for the virus on his nasal swab came back negative, he jubilantly announced his relief.  Like Twitter, in WhatsApp emotions quickly outstrip facts. After he received a flurry of cheerful emojis, I ruined the party, advising that despite the negative test he assume he’s infected and ...

Conclusion The vaccination comprises a misguided and unsafe national health care program which claims to prevent disease. Many significant health injuries are associated with vaccinating adults. Government resources are being spent researching and developing new and different vaccinations. Subjecting adults to more vaccinations is likely to cause more health injury and illness.
