There are no licensed vaccines, or vector control efforts in place. Despite increasing awareness in endemic regions, the public health burden and global distribution of scrub typhus remains poorly known. MethodsWe systematically reviewed all literature from public health records, fever studies and reports available on the Ovid MEDLINE, Embase Classic + Embase and EconLit databases, to estimate the burden of scrub typhus since the year 2000. FindingsIn prospective...

(Natural News) A recent study published in the journal Vaccine showed that there was a “strong association” between repeated seasonal flu shots and miscarriages. For anyone skeptical of vaccines, this finding, while saddening, is not exactly surprising. Why wouldn’t injecting a pregnant woman with a toxic cocktail of viruses, adjuvants and mercury cause a miscarriage? The...

CONCLUSION: SAB was associated with influenza vaccination in the preceding 28days. The association was significant only among women vaccinated in the previous influenza season with pH1N1-containing vaccine. This study does not and cannot establish a causal relationship between repeated influenza vaccination and SAB, but further research is warranted. PMID: 28917295 [PubMed - in process]

NEW YORK (AP) — A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu. Vaccine experts think the results may reflect the older age and other miscarriage risks for the women, and not the flu shots. Health officials say there is no reason to change the government recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu. They say the flu itself is a much greater danger to women and their fetuses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reached out to a do...

Preliminary research into a link between the flu vaccine and miscarriage found a weak connection, spurring researchers to call for more extensive study over multiple flu seasons. The study, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, compared 485 pregnant women who had miscarriages to 485 pregnant women who did not, and found that 17 of the women who miscarried had had a flu shot within the prior 28 days and also got the vaccine the previous year, The Washing ton Post reported. Four…
