“Three months ago, Michael Stec could bench-press 275 pounds. Now the 56-year-old struggles to walk, gripping tightly to the parallel bars at Mercy Hospital, his legs buckling underneath him like broken stilts.
“Most people never know how they get sick. But Stec says he can pinpoint the exact moment. He even has a receipt for it: a $32 influenza vaccine from a local CVS Pharmacy.
"’Something is wrong with this flu shot,’ he says from his hospital bed, his tracheotomy scar still visible.”
We’re told here that the risk of GBS is worth it. I posted comments.
“While the jury is still out on the health effects for children of environmental exposure to various chemicals, two reports released in the last week point to both the success of this strategy–to tread more cautiously when it comes to children and chemicals–and the need for it to continue.
“A few days after the release of the EPA’s report, non profit Healthy Child Healthy World released a report entitled “The Toxic Takeover of Baby Nurseries: Chemicals of Concern Found in Almost Every Common Product and Furnishing,” and an accompanying eBook with tips for making nurseries safer. In its report, HCHW notes that in the past 30 years childhood leukemia is up 60 percent, childhood brain cancer up 40 percent, obesity has nearly doubled, asthma, allergies and autism rates are on a sharp incline, and birth defects have increased 200 percent. The organization cites environmental chemical exposure as a major contributor to these trends.”
Forbes seems a bit concerned here that maybe all those toxins our children are surrounded by may not be good for them. “While the jury is still out…” (What? Kids aren’t sick enough?)
It’s time we linked the explosion in autism to all the other disastrous health conditions our kids are falling victim to. It’s time we demanded a stop to all the deadly exposures----especially the poisons in their vaccines. I posted seven comments.
“The number of cases of insulin-requiring type 1 diabetes rose sharply in children under the age of Philadelphia over a two decade span, paralleling increases seen across the United States and in Europe, according to a U.S. study.
“Researchers whose work appeared in the journal Diabetes Care found that the number of Philadelphia children under 5 diagnosed with type 1 diabetes increased 70 percent in 2005 from 1985, when a registry of such patients was begun.
“The number of diagnosed cases among all children up to age 14 rose by 29 percent.
"’Why are we seeing this large increase in type 1 diabetes in very young children? Unfortunately, the answer is we don't know,’ said lead author Terri Lipman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.”
More of the mystery surrounding the deteriorating health of our children.
