or if you like e-book on how to be a prolific writer in 14 days of less...You MAY CLICK HERE <<<<<<<<<<

 Lesson 1…

“My objective is to help you write as many books as possible in as short a time as possible!"

Even if you're never written anything before!
  Hi, and welcome to your first lesson on how to get your book written faster than you ever thought possible. Okay, back to business!    My name is Steve Manning. I'm the creator of the run-away best- selling, writing success program, "How To Write A Book On Anything in 14 Days or Less... Guaranteed!"
   I envy you. You're about to write a book. And although I've already written several myself, I know the thrill that comes with starting a new one. I see it every time I give my lecture to professionals all over the world. These are folks who are just like you. Folks who have an overwhelming desire to write that very special book (fiction or non-fiction). And if you've already made the decision to write your book, I don't need to tell you all the benefits that can come your way.
   Many of my clients are professionals. Folks like doctors, lawyers, consultants, speakers, engineers, professors and so on. Hundreds of them. From all over the world! They know exactly what a published book means to them. It means greater notoriety, more success, credibility, status, revenue, lead generation, and much more. In fact, there are as many different reasons for writing a non-fiction book as there are people who want to write them. And I've helped my students do it all.
   If you're thinking about fiction maybe you see yourself as the next Grisham, or the next Crichton; the next Danielle Steele or the next Anne Rice. You've got a story to tell and you want to tell it... as wonderfully as possible.
   Let me tell you that I'm here to help make it happen for you. My passion (call it a magnificent obsession) is to help as many people write as many books as they want to write--and get them published! 
Someone once asked Isaac Asimov why he was so prolific. His answer was unbelievably simple, complex and informative.    "I guess I'm prolific because I have a simple and straight-forward style!"
   So powerful are these words that they should be engraved in stone and placed on the desk of every writer who has ever thought about producing a book.
   "I guess I'm prolific because I have a simple and straightforward style." Ironically, Asimov could just as easily have said, "I guess I have a simple and straightforward style because I'm prolific."
   The two statements are co-dependent.
   If you want to be prolific, you must have a simple and straightforward style. But the only way you can have a simple and straightforward style… is to be prolific. 
   Do you know ANYONE who does something well? If they do it well, chances are very good they also do it very quickly. Now, this does not mean in order to do something well, you should do it quickly. It means only that those who do something very well almost always do it quickly.
   They have mastered the details, they have mastered the techniques, and they have mastered the process and the challenges. With this mastery comes proficiency. And proficiency will always be accompanied by speed.

  In order to write well, you should write the way you talk. If you write the way you talk, your writing will always be very understandable to the reader.    There will be no convoluted sentences. No $25 words, where a 50-cent offering will suffice. There will be no misunderstanding. No misinterpretation. When you talk to friends, you don't 'put on airs' in your speech. You speak to be understood, and (with the exception of politicians) you usually are.
   And just about every writing instructor, agent, editor, publisher and reader will tell you that if you write the way you talk, your manuscript will be infinitely more readable, publishable and sellable. 
 Those who know how to do something well, usually do it quickly. You know how to talk, so you talk quickly (by that I mean you don't labour over every word). If you want to write well, write the way you talk…    The logic is inescapable. If you want to write well, write quickly. If you write quickly, you will always write the way you talk (you won't have time to develop the awkward sentence).
   If you want to write well… write fast!
   If you want to be prolific, write quickly.
   If you want to write well, write quickly.
   The faster you write, the better you write! 
(Lesson One Ends Here)

At a breaking point in my life, I decided that something had to be done. Complaining doesn't take you anywhere. Nor being inactive.
I wanted to be published, and self-publishing actually seemed a feasible option: however, I quickly had to backtrack  when I saw the current market prices of digital publishers. I couldn't afford to pay thousands of dollars to publish my book. That was the simple truth.
The problem wasn't only economical, but also logical: I would have been forced to sell my book for at least $10 just to cover the costs. Who would purchase a self-published book at that price?   CLICK HERE FOR REAL DEAL !!!!NOW!!!

Cancer Drugs War...for MONEY $$$$$..BEWARE

Posted by Cori O'Donnell - Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

The face of drug dealers are changing, crack dealers lurking behind corners are not the only players on the market, business men and women sitting behind desks have joined the game. And the drug of choice is…cancer pharmaceuticals.
The U.S. has a shortage of cancer drugs and companies are buying up all the drugs they can get their hands on and in turn reselling them with a large markup.
This cancer drug-dealing business is referred to as the “gray market,” and according to experts in the pharmaceutical industry, this practice is not illegal.
We may see an increase in these practices. According to Raw Story, President Barack Obama may have just opened a larger loophole when he issued an executive order to fix the problem.
“These are a number of very small firms that have popped up out of nowhere. Most of them are relatively new,” Thomas Smith, director of palliative medicine at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, told Raw Story. “It happens in every other market, we just don’t expect it to happen in pharmaceuticals for cancer treatment."
According to Modern Medicine most of the drugs being sold on the gray market are generic brand drugs such as: “vincristine, methotrexate, leucovorin, cytarabine, doxorubicin, bleomycin, and paclitaxel—that physicians have prescribed for years in childhood leukemia and curable cancers.”
The non-profit Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) reports that gray market prices can be up to ten times higher than usual costs.
In a survey conducted by ISMP, 56 percent of 549 hospitals surveyed said they receive offers on a daily basis from people in the gray market.
ISMP also reported that 52 percent of survey respondents reported purchasing pharmaceuticals from the gray market within the last two years. And about 80 percent of those who do business on the gray market said their purchases have increased over the last two years as drug shortages rapidly increase.
It is unknown as to how many gray market dealers exist, but at least five are being investigated by Congressman Elijah Cummings for charging inflated prices for the drugs.
The short supply of cancer drugs can be contributed to the economic problems in the United States. From Modern Medicine:
“If manufacturers don’t make enough profit, they won’t make generic drugs. If a brand-name drug with a higher profit margin is available, a manufacturer may stop producing its generic equivalent. Contamination and shortages of raw materials likely account for less than 10% of the shortages.”
It may appear hospitals and other medical institutions are resorting to the gray market for self-benefit, but that’s not the case.
The Associated Press conducted an investigation and found that within the last 15 months there have been at least 15 deaths because of prescription drug shortages. Patients either died because the drugs they needed were unobtainable, or because of an inadequate dosage amount.
In addition to posing as a threat to peoples’ lives, the drug shortage has delayed surgeries and cancer treatments.
The gray market is not the only cause of drug shortages, there has been an increase of theft of prescription drugs from both warehouses and during the shipment process. These thieves resell the drugs at higher costs, but are also drastically effecting the cancer drug market, and not in a good way.
The FDA, along with medical and consumer groups, is working to improve the drug shortage problem and to put these gray market drug dealers out of business.

Are You a Victim of This Nearly One Trillion Dollar Scam?

Last spring in a scathing criticism of the U.S. healthcare system, bNet.com columnist Ken Terry predicted that "waste and cruddy medical care" will continue to drive up health care costs until policymakers address the prevalence of deadly medical errors and needless treatments.
The story was driven by statistics showing that  physicians order tests and procedures that, in too many cases, are totally unnecessary.
The fact is, on your next routine medical checkup, you have a 43 percent chance of undergoing an unnecessary medical test.
Collectively, these additional tests cost the U.S. health care system a staggering $700 billion a year, with just three of them – X-rays, CT scans, and biopsies – costing an extra $47 million to $194 million a year.
What's most disturbing is that these unnecessary tests often lead to even more tests that lead to unnecessary procedures – and even surgeries – that ultimately could cause harm or death.
According to a physician interviewed by CBS News:
"It happens all the time. The patient has no symptoms and doesn't smoke, but he gets a routine chest X-ray. If there is a small shadow, doctors are obligated to look further. That X-ray becomes a CT scan. That may show a small little nodule. The next thing you know, the patient ends up with a cardiothoracic surgeon who wants a needle biopsy, or even an open surgery. In a lot of these cases he comes up with nothing; a benign nodule or something."

'A Drumbeat of Disheartening Reports'

These unnecessary tests are both crippling the American health care system and killing us – literally and figuratively – through its distorted way of addressing symptoms rather than the cause of disease. In 2007, the U.S. was paying roughly twice what Canada, France, and the United Kingdom were paying per capita for health care. And according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the method in which U.S. doctors get paid – something called "fee-for-service" – encourages them to order unnecessary tests and procedures.
 Terry summed it up this way:
"In just one recent day, there were news stories about the widespread misdiagnosing of Alzheimer's disease, needless biopsies of patients suspected of having prostate cancer, cases of people contracting HIV during colonoscopies, and incidents in which babies received whole body irradiation instead of targeted X rays …  There's a drumbeat of disheartening reports about the gap between theory and practice in medicine … The  real shame of it is that so many patients are either harmed or not helped, diverting resources that could benefit others."

Your Chances of Getting Cancer from this ONE Medical Test is 1 in 250

A recent study showed that 83 percent of health care providers said the reason behind the extra tests they do is fear of being sued. But I believe there's another factor at work: in March 2011, the nonprofit group Public Citizen released a study showing that it's financial incentive, NOT fear of being sued that's driving unnecessary tests:
  • Self-referring physicians (who have a financial interest in the testing procedures they refer patients to) are up to seven times more likely to order X-rays – although their interpretations are usually less accurate than regular radiologists'
  • Self-referrers are also twice as likely to order other tests, and 40 percent more likely to order more complicated tests
  • Use of one test – CT scans – increases by up to 300 percent when a physician has one of these machines in the office, or has a financial interest in one
Despite the well documented dangers and warnings that CT scans should be limited to life and death situations only, one in five Americans get this scan every year,.Statistics show that anyone who gets a CT scan has a 1 in 250 chance of getting cancer from it – the equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every day.
How would you feel about flying if you knew a jumbo jet crashed every day, killing everyone on board?  Is that really the kind of life-and-death situation you'd expect your health care provider to be putting you in?  , Please take control of your health by avoiding these dangerous scans especially since their use  scans has increased 330 percent since 1996.

Hospitals: Still the Most Dangerous Place

In her book, "Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer," Shannon Brownlee talks about the number of people who die in hospitals due to incorrect care, drug dosage or hospital-acquired infections. Even with new safety regulations in place, 180,000 hospitalized Americans still die every year from largely preventable causes – and the worst part about it, Brownlee says, is that as much as a third of that care does nothing to improve your health!
What happens is that you often get the tests we talked about above because of what your physician's specialty is, not because that's necessarily the test you need. For example if you have low back pain and see different specialists you will get different tests: rheumatologists will order blood tests, neurologists will order nerve impulse tests, and surgeons will order MRIs and CT scans..
But no matter what tests you get, you'll probably end up with a spinal fusion because it's one of the "more lucrative procedures in medicine," Brownlee says – even though the best success rate for spinal fusions is only 25 percent!
Angioplasties and certain types of chemotherapy with similar low success rates are just as prone to be ordered, Brownlee says, because that's where hospitals' investments lie. You see, they have all this equipment and they need to use it to get a return on it – but they also need to get you out of there as quickly as possible, so they can get the next patient in. What ensues is a type of aggressive patient therapy that can end in disaster: according to the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services, 1 in 7 Medicare recipients will be harmed every year as a result of the medical care they received in the hospital.

Classic Example of Why So Much Unnecessary Costs are Generated

Everybody agrees this needs to stop, including the New England Journal of Medicine, which recently used a fictional operating room joke to illustrate how unnecessary medical care drives up healthcare costs. The tale is about an orthopedic surgeon and an anesthesiologist who are scheduling the use of an operating room. "There is a fracture; I need to fix it," the doctor says. He's evasive with the details at first, but in the end he admits the "patient" is a 97-year-old woman who fell, broke her leg, went into cardiac arrest – and died. The macabre humor speaks to the problems of the medical system today – and one of those problems is defining the difference between need and want when it comes to medical procedures.
The fictional surgeon said he needed to fix the fracture. But the truth was, he only wanted to – and obviously, sometimes there's a big difference between need and want, with financial interests being the real deciding factor. That's why it's important that you, as a medical consumer, be your own advocate when it comes to health care decisions.
You can do this by:
  • Asking questions when your doctor orders tests: what is each test for? Who will do the test? Are there any side effects? What if you don't get the test – how necessary is it to your care? Is the test "just to be sure," or is there a proven, scientific reason for doing it?
  • If your doctor wants to do a procedure after the tests come back, ask the same questions all over again, including: Do you have a definitive diagnosis justifying the procedure? Are there any negative effects that I need to know about this procedure? What is the success rate of this procedure? What is the worst case scenario if we simply don't do it?
  • If you go ahead with the tests and procedures, and your doctor wants to do a surgery or other type of intervention as a result, ask the same questions once more, and then:
  • Ask, do I NEED these tests/procedures/surgery, or do you simply want them – and if so, for what reasons?
I admit some of these questions seem repetitive. But they NEED to be asked each and every time, for every single test performed on you. Remember, it's not only YOUR decision whether to get any or all of these tests and procedures, but your RIGHT to seek a second opinion somewhere else.

Natural is Better, and Less is More

Brownlee is adamant that the U.S. health care system can do better. Since the United States ranks 46th in the world in infant mortality and 49th in life expectancy, it's obvious that money doesn't buy health. The answer, then, to better health – and avoiding unnecessary tests and procedures in the first place – must be something else.
When it comes to figuring out what that "something else" is, I don't think there's anyone in the medical community anywhere who doesn't agree that simply changing your lifestyle can go a long way toward "fixing" a number of chronic conditions. As identified by the NIH, five life-changing factors that can do this are:
  • Following a healthy diet
  • Maintaining an optimal body weight
  • Engaging in regular physical activity
  • Not smoking
  • Keeping alcohol use to no more than one drink per day for women, and two drinks per day for men
That's not an impossible list. You've been hearing it from me for ages, but I'm thrilled that health officials are finally joining in, and trying to help you stay out of the hospital by giving you advice that really works! The great thing about these behavior changes is that they don't cost extra money to do – and they're almost guaranteed to save you money in the long run. I would add a few things to this list, though.

What Constitutes a Healthy Lifestyle?

Of all the healthy lifestyle strategies I know of that can have a significant impact on your health, normalizing your insulin and leptin levels is probably the most important. There is no question that this is an absolute necessity if you want to avoid disease and slow down your aging process. That means modifying your diet to avoid excessive amounts of fructose, grains, and other pro-inflammatory ingredients like trans fats.
In addition to the items mentioned above, these additional strategies can further help you stay healthy:
  • Learn how to effectively cope with stress – Stress has a direct impact on inflammation, which in turn underlies many of the chronic diseases that kill people prematurely every day, so developing effective coping mechanisms is a major longevity-promoting factor.

    Meditation, prayer, physical activity and exercise are all viable options that can help you maintain emotional and mental equilibrium. I also strongly believe in using energy psychology tools such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to address deeper, oftentimes hidden emotional problems.
  • Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels to between 50 and 70 ng/ml.
  • Animal based omega-3 fats – Correcting the ratio of omega-3 to healthful omega-6 fats is a strong factor in helping people live longer. This typically means increasing your intake of animal based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil, while decreasing your intake of damaged omega-6 fats (think trans fats).
  • Get most of your antioxidants from foods –Good sources include blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, beans, and artichokes.
  • Use coconut oil – Another excellent anti-aging food is coconut oil, known to reduce your risk of heart disease and Alzheimer's disease, and lower your cholesterol, among other things.
  • Avoid as many chemicals, toxins, and pollutants as possible – This includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.
  • Avoid prescription drugs – Pharmaceutical drugs kill thousands of people prematurely every year – as an expected side effect of the action of the drug. And, if you adhere to a healthy lifestyle, you most likely will never need any of them in the first place.
Incorporating these healthy lifestyle guidelines will help set you squarely on the path to optimal health and give you the best shot at living a much longer life.  Remember, it's never too late to take control of your health. And when you do go to the doctor, know that it's OK to ask questions and opt for less medical intervention while choosing a more natural way of healing your body – you should NEVER think that you're not supposed to, or can't, ask questions of the person you've entrusted with your body.

Who is Smart or Dumb, you or your money? Do you know your money?

The shelves at your local bookstore or library are simply littered with books about how to manage your finances. This is a good problem to have, but it can still be a little confusing when you look for just the right book on how to effectively order your personal financial house.
One book that you might consider as a guide for the best way to run your finances is “The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in Its Place.” In the paragraphs below, you will see why this book is unique in its approach as a financial self help book, since it not only focuses on money but also on health as the basis for true individual wealth.

Who is the Author of “The Wealth Cure?”

Hill Harper is the man responsible for the unusual new take on personal finance, ‘The Wealth Cure.” A magna cum laude graduate of Brown University, Harper also graduated cum laude with a Doctor of Jurisprudence from prestigious Harvard Law School. Hill Harper furthermore obtained a Kennedy School of Government Master’s degree.
The writer has already enjoyed an unusually successful and brilliant career in several fields. He earned the status of best selling author of “The Conversation,” “Letters to a Young Brother” in 2007, and again in 2008 with “Letters to a Young Sister.” The second book won him two NAACP awards and then achieved the distinction of the American Library Association’s Best Book for Young Adults.
Hill is also an accomplished star in a well known and beloved television series that you may have heard of, called CSI: New York. The NAACP has named him the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series for 2008 and 2009. Besides this, Hill Harper has performed roles in other box office movies and shows that include The Skulls, The Sopranos, He Got Game, and Lackawanna.
Hill Harper has a mission with his writing. He seeks to aid his readers as they attempt to rearrange their money priorities and properly define success. This is no easy task, but he has a wealth of experiences on which to draw with his writings. These range from Harvard Law, to his writing success, to his acting career, to his recent battle with Thyroid Cancer. Harper considers such financial security not to be the goal, but instead a tool that you his reader can utilize to help you build up a life of meaning and worth.

What is the Premise of “The Wealth Cure?”

The idea behind “The Wealth Cure” is that you can actually relegate money to its proper place. The book teaches that you can employ this goal to build wealth as a means to reach happiness and satisfaction in your life. Harper is well suited to explain this to you in terms beyond traditional personal finance self help books. He starts out with a ground breaking and exciting new explanation for what wealth is, and in the process encourages you his reader to not simply increase your financial security, but also to attain wealth in all areas of your life.

How Does Harper Convey This Unique View Point?

Harper makes his “Wealth Cure” an interesting read when he takes his own life story and turns it into a parable for you the reader. Along the way, he encourages you to consider your own personal values at the same time that you build up a solid financial foundation in your life. He teaches you that it is simultaneously important to take stock of what the relationships in your life are worth and to seek ways to improve your interactions with the individuals who are a part of your life.
Author Hill Harper utilizes real life stories from his friends and family along with his personal memories. This way, you will start to understand that money is really not an end goal, but it is instead a means to the end of financial freedom so that you can follow your heart and dreams in life. He conveys several keys as part of this. You must find the resources that you require, invest heavily in yourself, and make it your personal responsibility to see that these resources are utilized effectively, efficiently, and well.

What Makes “The Wealth Cure” Different from Other Money Management Advice Books?

The biggest difference between “The Wealth Cure” and your other typical personal money management book is that Hill Harper sees wealth through the lens of health. He points out to you that if you do not have health, then riches and things will not offer you any important meaning or satisfaction. To this effect, this book offers you more than just good solid strategies and fantastic advice.
Of course it talks about how you can budget your income, invest your assets efficiently and well, and buy the right types and amounts of insurance. Still, after these topics are covered, the book proves why it is more than just your ordinary garden variety type of personal economics book.
Harper goes through his own powerful life story to demonstrate to you that money by itself does not make you wealthy, and that when you pursue this money and wealth, it will not give you satisfaction or happiness. The real build up of wealth is instead to chase health and well being, not simply money. The success formula that Hill Harper puts forward is as follows: Money Plus Wellness Equals Wealth.

What Is The Difference Between Smart and Dumb Money?

You have probably heard the phrases smart money and dumb money thrown around at some point in your life. Hill gives you the definition of what differentiates the two approaches to money in this book. “The Wealth Cure” states that dumb money is money that you pour into items that lose value as you sleep.
In contrast, smart money is the cash that you put into items that gain in value while you sleep. A good example of dumb money would be money that you pour into credit card interest and payments. Investments which grow in value or give you dividends and interest are good examples of smart money. Hill sums it up as smart money makes money for you while dumb money drains money away from you.

Final Verdict of “The Wealth Cure?

“The Wealth Cure” is valuable as it explains to you critical concepts about smart and stupid use of your money, life, and health. Harper is so gifted in his breakdown of once difficult concepts that you can not say you did not know any better after you read this work. The book will also ensure that you never again mistake the important things in life, which are health, happiness, and then money.
To say this is a get rich quick financial self help book would be a gross misstatement. Harper teaches you that when you budget, save, and invest, you can improve your financial scenario over time, but only once you attain a solid financial literacy and understand what the significance of money should be in your own life. “The Wealth Cure” overflows with knowledge and wisdom to help you build up a rich life that includes health, love and relationships, meaningful experiences, and personal achievements that make your life worth living.
Have you ever wondered what the pundits mean when they say that if you do not have your health, then you do not have anything?

Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) saved 10 millions from death ....

A pinch of salt, a fistful of sugar, a jug of clean water. The simple elixir known as oral rehydration solution (ORS)--recently ranked No. 2 in a British Medical Journal survey of greatest health advances of the last 150 years--has saved tens of millions of people from death by infectious diarrheal diseases since the early 1970s. At the cost of a few cents, almost anyone alert enough to swallow can survive cholera, which can kill a man in four hours by draining him dry.
In a landmark paper published in the Lancet in 1968, the Harvard School of Public Health's Richard Cash and his chief collaborator, David Nalin, reported the results of clinical trials in Bangladesh, then East Pakistan. In rigorous tests, they showed that this simple solution worked as well as sterile intravenous fluids, a scarce and costly option in the Third World. Though researchers at Harvard and elsewhere had worked out the principles behind oral rehydration in the 1950s, the pair, then U.S. Public Health Service physicians in their 20s, were the first to administer ORS clinically in a reliably effective way.
Richard Cash
BRINGING SCIENCE TO THE PEOPLE HSPH’s Richard Cash, a pioneer of lifesaving oral rehydration therapy, now trains researchers throughout the developing world. In January of 2007, Cash will receive the annual Prince Mahidol Award in public health from the King and Queen of Thailand, in Bangkok, sharing the honor with researchers David Nalin and Dilip Mahalanabis.
"Those were heady times," remembers Cash, a senior lecturer in the Department of Population and International Health at HSPH, sitting in his cluttered office next to a three-foot-high statue of Shitala, the Indian goddess of smallpox. "We thought, 'This is great! Everybody's going to use this, right? We can all go home now.' But everybody didn't use it."
To get ORS to the masses, he says, researchers faced huge obstacles: A medical culture that clung to IV therapy as superior to what they perceived as a primitive oral form; a very high prevalence of illiteracy, especially among women; and no way to distribute ORS packets to remote, roadless areas.
In a presentation to a group of India's health leaders last spring, Cash chronicled a 10-year effort to surmount those daunting hurdles, using ORS to drive home a point as relevant today as it was years ago. What low-income nations need most is not "parachute research" handed down from rich, industrialized countries, but assistance in building their capacity to do research at home, where the problems are.
"You can't sit here in the U.S., do your research, and expect your ideas to work a thousand miles away," Cash tells his students. "The questions you ask come from the environment you're in. You're much less likely to ask the right questions if you're not there."
With one foot in Boston, the other in South Asia, Cash practices what he preaches. Since 2000, he's been spending the Winter session with HSPH students in Kerala, India, home to a public health school where he has taught for nine years. Today, in tiny Bangladesh, he's helping to launch another such school--one he hopes will, like Harvard, become a training ground and research hub for students from all over the world.
40 Million rescued since 1978
In a cover story on October 16, 2006, the European edition of Time reported that oral rehydration therapy has rescued at least 40 million people from the grip of water- and sewage-born pathogens since its adoption by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1978. Since then, WHO estimates, annual deaths worldwide among acute diarrhea's chief victims--children under age 5--have plummeted from 5 million to 1.9 million.
Why, then, does the illness still kill so many in developing countries worldwide every year?
The answer, Cash says, is anything but simple. One billion people lack clean water; more than 2.4 billion lack a basic toilet. Oral rehydration therapy is not a cure, only a means to hydrate tissues while the immune system battles bacteria or viruses. And promoting ORT presents unique challenges in every country--issues research can help address, Cash notes.
In Bangladesh, in 1971, 10 million people fled to neighboring India to escape civil war. Crowded into camps, they seemed doomed to perish from hunger and a massive cholera outbreak. But in a desperate, grand-scale test of ORT organized by Johns Hopkins researchers based in Calcutta, 95 percent of the refugees survived.
Here was dramatic proof that ORT worked in the field. Still, it took a 10-year campaign by the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research in Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) and the nongovernmental organization now known as BRAC to turn a scientific discovery into a home remedy. Beginning in 1980, BRAC sent an army of 10,000 female health workers into the Bengali countryside, where they taught ORT to 13 million illiterate mothers. Children, too, learned the ORS recipe through one-room schools set up by BRAC that today number 37,000. In time, this simple solution became part of the national lore. At least 75 percent of families use ORS to treat diarrhea, according to government surveys.
The lesson, Cash says, is that no matter the problem--diarrheal infections, HIV, malaria--answers must be tailored to cultural norms, values, and practices. By way of example, he points to tuberculosis. Because treatment for the disease takes at least six months, helping patients complete their therapy is a major challenge. To ensure compliance, villages in Bangladesh enlist volunteers to serve as coaches. Moreover, patients (or, if they are too poor, their communities) must pay a modest bond up front, which they get back only upon completing treatment. At that point, their coach also earns a small sum.
"You must peg the payment at a level people can afford, but make it high enough that they'll miss it if they fail to follow through," explains Cash. In the United States, he says, a strategy that relied on community support to ensure patients' compliance "would never fly, given our emphasis on privacy and personal freedoms. But in a culture where the community is important to one's survival and the need to control infectious diseases is extremely urgent, this strategy can work."

'Rock star' in Dhaka
"Taking science to the people," as Cash puts it, is the operative word at BRAC University, in Dhaka, the Bangladeshi capital. In addition to collaborating with ICDDR,B researchers for 35 years, Cash has been an architect of the university's James P. Grant School of Public Health, one of only two in the country. Named in honor of the late UNICEF director, the new school saw its first 26 MPH students graduate in January of 2006. By design, many were admitted from developing countries--Tanzania, Uganda, Afghanistan, the Philippines, India, and Pakistan. Half were Bengali. Half were women.
Cash was the "obvious choice" to help lead the feasibility study for the school, says its international director, Demisse Habte. According to Habte, a former director of the ICDDR,B, Cash is "like a rock star" in the world of public health, adding, "To much of Asia, he is Harvard University."
Women in Dhaka are interviewed by students
REAL-WORLD LESSONS at the new James P. Grant School of Public Health in Bangladesh, students are immersed in field research. In this slum in the capital city, Dhaka, they interview women regarding health-seeking behaviors and other health practices.
To map out a curriculum, Cash sat down with BRAC's founder and president, Fazle Hasan Abed, and colleagues from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, the London School of Tropical Diseases, and the University of Amsterdam. A priority, they agreed, was to teach problem-solving through field research. Instead of taking five classes a semester in nine months, Grant students tackle courses one by one, in three- or four-week modules over 11 months. This intensive format is "the only cost-effective way to do it," says the School's dean, Mustaque Chowdhury, a former BRAC research director and Bell Fellow at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies who has known Cash for more than 30 years. The fledgling school now borrows six of its eight faculty members from universities in England, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United States. Cash teaches introduction to public health and infectious disease epidemiology at the Grant School during HSPH's Winter term and the summer.
"Richard's an awesome teacher," says one of only two Americans in the Grant School's class of 2007, Noah Levinson, speaking over an Internet connection from Dhaka. Having founded a small NGO, Calcutta Kids, in a sprawling city slum in West Bengal, India, Levinson says he "wanted to study public health in a setting like the one I'm working in. I couldn't do that in the U.S."
"Richard has a deep passion for Bangladesh--knows the culture, knows the people," Levinson adds. "He is highly respected there. When he talks, people listen."
With close ties to the ICDDR,B, the Grant School has the potential to become a research magnet. But the school must recruit a permanent, high-caliber faculty--a challenge, Cash says, since "to attract good people, you must create an exciting learning environment and pay them well." To recruit first-rate students, full scholarships are being offered to students in the first five years, thanks to support from BRAC, ICDDR,B, UNICEF, the James P. Grant Trust, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
'We want to train leaders'
It took a deadly cyclone, massive flooding, and a concert organized by the late Beatle George Harrison, in 1971, to bring Bangladesh to the West's attention. As refugees returned home from India following the end of the War of Liberation, newscasts portrayed their newborn country as the epicenter of human misery. That image persists despite substantial progress in this struggling democracy toward the Millennium Development Goals, ambitious benchmarks that hold governments accountable for health and economic growth (see http://www.mdgbangla.org/index_en.html).
"I'm from India, and even I had the false impression, growing up, that Bangladesh was a miserable place," says HSPH master's degree candidate Hirshini Patel. But on a Winter-term trip planned last year by Cash, with stops at BRAC, ICDDR, B, and the Grant School, Patel says, "I was amazed at what I saw. The natural beauty was stunning, and the people were gracious and welcoming." And resourceful, she adds. There was vibrancy, optimism, and determination, despite the widespread poverty.
"In one very small village we all crowded around one man with TB. He showed us his skin lesions and answered our questions, which were pretty personal," Patel says. "But he was very open, genuinely interested in helping us learn."
Today one in four Bengalis live on less than $1 a day, on the margins of survival. Yet, according to a 2005 U.N. report, the country is making meaningful progress toward its Millennium targets. BRAC, founded in 1972, has played a pivotal role by economically empowering families, especially women. A major contribution of this NGO, one of the world's largest, is its support of primary education for girls. This, along with ORT and other investments in public health, have prompted declines in infant-mortality and fertility rates (now 56 infant deaths per 1,000 and 3.3 live births per woman, respectively).
As celebrated in October, when the Nobel Committee awarded its Peace Prize to the Grameen Bank and its founder, Muhammad Yunus, the country is the birthplace of microlending, through which loans as small as $10 enable even beggars to operate vegetable stands, sell crafts, and start other small businesses. According to the World Bank, Bangladesh has seen a rise in gross domestic product per capita in the last three years of 4.3 percent.
But big challenges remain. Diarrheal diseases persist for lack of clean water and sanitation. "Our maternal death rate is one of the highest in the world," laments Chowdhury. Arsenic poisons well water in thousands of villages, he says. And pneumonia is a major killer of children, owing to what he calls "our number one problem: a lack of trained professionals."
That's where Cash, and Harvard, can help--"by training some of our faculty, and sending more faculty here," Chowdhury says. "We want to train leaders."
Reciprocal discoveries
Research assistance, too, is what Harvard can offer. Cash's own studies focus on ethical issues in research in developing countries. Last summer, Cash led ethics workshops in Beijing, New Dehli, and Karachi. A book he'll soon publish presents dozens of real-life dilemmas. How do you get informed consent in a society in which individuals cede decision-making to village elders? Should studies relax stringent U.S. protocols where researchers in other countries deem them irrelevant? What happens when researchers in South Asia don't define plagiarism in the same way their American collaborators do? Is it reasonable, in a study of prostitutes' attitudes toward condom use in a country rife with HIV, to hire men to pose as clients?
The answers, Cash notes, again depend on local policies and cultural norms. For example, "the Terri Schiavo [right-to-life] case would never have happened in China," he points out. "There, patient welfare is a family matter, and the government has no role."
On both ethical and pragmatic grounds, Cash objects to Western nations that lead studies overseas, yet fail to adopt the results themselves. Ironically, he notes, ORT has never been widely used in the United States. For children there is Pedialyte, costing $6 a bottle. Adults are hospitalized and treated intravenously. Even now, several hundred elderly Americans die of dehydration each year, in part because people's awareness of thirst declines in old age. One U.S. company is refining ready-made ORS for the country's aging population.
Bringing health to the world's most vulnerable people is an uphill climb, but Cash draws inspiration from small victories and his curious, ambitious students. Let others retire. For his next project, he hopes to help plan curricula for new public health schools to be created, with an assist from Harvard, by the Public Health Foundation of India, an innovative partnership between India's private sector and the central government. As for teaching, Cash says, "I'll be doing that forever."

The Most Powerful Force in Human Behaviour: Homeostasis

Homeostatic imbalance

Many diseases are a result of disturbance of homeostasis, a condition known as homeostatic imbalance. As it ages, every organism will lose efficiency in its control systems. The inefficiencies gradually result in an unstable internal environment that increases the risk for illness. In addition, homeostatic imbalance is also responsible for the physical changes associated with aging. Even more serious than illness and other characteristics of aging is death. Heart failure has been seen where nominal negative feedback mechanisms become overwhelmed, and destructive positive feedback mechanisms then take over.[10]
Diseases that result from a homeostatic imbalance include diabetes, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, gout, and any disease caused by a toxin present in the bloodstream. All of these conditions result from the presence of an increased amount of a particular substance. In ideal circumstances, homeostatic control mechanisms should prevent this imbalance from occurring, but, in some people, the mechanisms do not work efficiently enough or the quantity of the substance exceeds the levels at which it can be managed. In these cases, medical intervention is necessary to restore the balance, or permanent damage to the organs may result.
According to the following quote, every illness has aspects to it that are a result of lost homeostasis:
"Just as we live in a constantly changing world, so do the cells and tissues survive in a constantly changing microenvironment. The 'normal' or 'physiologic' state then is achieved by adaptive responses to the ebb and flow of various stimuli permitting the cells and tissues to adapt and to live in harmony within their microenvironment. Thus, homeostasis is preserved. It is only when the stimuli become more severe, or the response of the organism breaks down, that disease results - a generalization as true for the whole organism as it is for the individual cell." (Pathologic Basis of Disease, third edition, S.L. Robbins MD, R.S. Cotran MD, V.K. Kumar MD. 1984, W.P. Saunders Company) http://www.hypnosis.edu/webtv/

Endurance, Optimization,Creativity,Simplicity, Innovation : Steve Jobs have jobs for you too ....Live on !!!

If you are not familiar with recently deceased inventor and technology pioneer Steven Jobs, then you have lived under a rock for the last ten years and more. There are not many areas of the modern technological world you live in today that this heroic genius of a man did not touch in some meaningful way.
Even his arch rival and long time nemesis Microsoft founder Bill Gates said about the late founder of Apple that the world will feel the impact of the late legend Steve Jobs for generations to come.
Steve Jobs did more than simply change your world. He used his creativity and brilliance to generate enormous financial wealth for himself, many of his employees, and his shareholders for four decades. In the paragraphs below, you will learn the five principles that he used to accomplish this.

What Are Steve Jobs’ Accomplishments and Inventions?

Steve Jobs’ greatest claim to fame is of course that he started Apple Computers out of his garage basement back in the early 1970′s. These Macintosh computers that he and early partner Steve Wozniak began to build proved to be smaller, sleeker, more attractive, more affordable, and more fun than anything that the eight hundred pound gorilla IBM had built up to that point.
In under a decade, Apple Computers owned a major manufacturing facility, captured a coveted share of the personal computer market, and made millionaires out of numerous shareholders who had shown the foresight to trust Steve Jobs with their investment capital.
These achievements alone would have made an important place in personal computer history for Steve Jobs and his beloved Apple Corporation. The tireless inventor and innovator did not rest on his past glories after he left Apple. He developed and built up an incredible new form of animation known to the world as CGI Animated Feature Films with Pixar Animation Studios in the early 1990′s.
This company became so successful in its distribution partnerships with Disney Studios through such international hit releases as Toy Story 1, 2, and 3, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Cars that Disney bought it from him in 2006 for $7.4 billion in cash and Disney stock, twenty years after he had acquired the fledgling venture and 26 Academy Awards wins later. This made Jobs the largest shareholder in the Walt Disney Company and earned him a seat on the revered company’s board of directors.
You probably most remember Steve Jobs like countless millions of others for his triumphant return to Apple in the late 1990′s. When Apple bought out another venture of his called Next, he came back as interim CEO in 1997/1998 and re-gained his old post permanently in 2000. During those eventful next over ten years, you saw Jobs innovate such incredible products that literally changed modern society.
These started with the iPod that allowed you to listen to thousands of songs that you kept on a small cigarette lighter sized device, continued with the iPhone the world’s first smart phone, and culminated in the few last years with the iPad that made even sleek laptops seem like dinosaurs by comparison.

The Five Principles that Steve Jobs Employed When He Created Wealth

1. Innovation
Innovation refers to the capability to take ingenious ideas and turn them into marketable products. Steve did this time and again with everything from the affordable and powerful personal computer, to the disc man portable CD deck replacement the iPod.
The idea that you could have a small desk top sized personal computer in your home or office was a great theoretical concept, but only through true innovation could you take this brainstorm from the drawing board successfully to the store shelves. Steve Jobs demonstrated this uncanny ability again with the iPod, when he looked back at the old cassette tape walkman and the portable CD discman and decided that computer technology allowed for a better way to store infinitely more music.
2. Simplicity
Simplicity is the ability for you to take technology and make it less impersonal and more pleasurable. The cell phone was not a new idea when Jobs approached the technology. It had already existed on a widespread scale for over a decade. But cell phones were cold and fairly limited up to that point. Steve Jobs looked at cell phones and said we can make them simpler and more powerful to use.
He made cell phones fun with his iPhones. The proof of his success is obvious in the many companies that have since attempted to copy Apple’s Smart Phone idea. Again, Steve Jobs did not create the cell phone, but with his iPhones, he made it so much more fun to use them.
3. Creativity
Creativity is your ability to think outside of the box, or the normal way of doing things. Steve Jobs approached the iPad this way. Laptops had always required the use of a mouse button or mouse pad to move a cursor or pointer around the screen.
No one bothered to re-design this well worn and proven concept until Steve Jobs asked, what if you could touch the screen directly and move around the Internet simply with the point of your finger, or manipulate pictures, documents, and data without a mouse pad or button at all. This kind of creative thinking made him a huge success on practically every product launch, and it made both he and his shareholders at Apple and Pixar Animation Studios fantastically wealthy several times over.
4. Optimization
When you hear optimization, this has to do with the belief that everything on earth can be made better. In the last year of his life, Steve Jobs walked into a Sony store in a mall and picked up a new model of digital video camera that Sony had recently designed and released.
After he worked with and manipulated it for a few minutes, Jobs said to the person with him that we could do this better. It did not matter to him that Apple did not design digital video cameras. Jobs always saw the potential to take a product that someone else had pioneered and radically improve on it himself.
5. Endurance
You have endurance in life if you can stick with projects, dreams, and goals no matter how they appear to fail or suffer setbacks at first. It is all too easy to look back on Steve Jobs’ life with rose colored sunglasses and only see one brilliant success after another. The truth is far less simple. Consider that Steve Jobs had his cutting edged new operating system stolen from him by a contractor who worked for him at the time.
Bill Gates took Apple’s brilliant ideas, called them Windows, rushed them secretly to market ahead of Apple, then sealed Microsoft’s fate and Apple’s for many years when he signed an exclusive and universal deal with IBM to use this Windows system on all of their platforms and computers in the future. Microsoft’s star rose while Apple’s failed as a result. Finally after years of disappointment and people management problems, Jobs found himself forced out of the computer company that he had personally created in his garage.
He did not let this stop him, but proved his endurance when he co-founded Pixar Animation Studios. Apple’s fortunes waxed and waned after Steve’s departure, and he finally returned to the company in triumph over a decade later to pick up the failing pieces of Apple. He then proceeded to rebuild Apple into the largest and most successful consumer technology company on earth.
How can you argue with the principles that Steve Jobs used to make billions of dollars over and over again?

Rules of Money

Week 1 – The New Rules of Money

The new rules of money became established during the 70s after Nixon had canceled the gold standard. No longer would the dollar be worthwhile, as its value would continue to drop over the years. Even now, the dollar’s value is lower than that of many foreign currencies.
Consequently, prices rise while your income remains the same. This causes many problems as you end up spending all your money just to survive. You will continue this pattern until you learn the new rules of money. Once this becomes engraved in your mind, you will have the power to become rich.
Such a concept is maybe difficult to believe. You maybe think that in order to become rich, you must be super-intelligent. In reality, intelligence has very little to do with being rich. What really matters is how you handle your money. This is a skill that rich people always had, though in the olden days the concept was applied differently.
To get a better understanding, take a look at the section below as it will discuss the old rules behind making money.

The Old Rules of Money

1.Get an Education
In the olden days, school was the ultimate answer to financial success. After graduating, you would get a job that you would stay with for most of your adult life. Then, when it came time to retire, the job would provide a pension. Today, not only is it hard to find a job, but getting a pension is usually out of the question. Most are lucky if they even get health insurance.
Outsourcing has not made the problem any better. With a click of a button, a company can hire a foreign person for significantly less money. This leaves Americans with very few alternatives. Some even turn to outsourcing for themselves, especially as freelancing sites become more popular. However, when this happens, they typically work for the same wages as their foreign counterparts. So, either way, they are not making the money they need.
If you are working a traditional job you do not have things any easier. Unlike your parents and grandparents, who stayed with one job forever, nowadays you will work several different jobs throughout your lifetime. Indeed, with today’s work force, you cannot expect one company to provide financial security. Instead, expect to work more than three jobs in your lifetime.
2. Work Your Way Up
In today’s time, you get taxed more as your income rises. As a result, it is possible that you end up paying more taxes than your company’s CEO, (who may have more deductions available).
Warren Buffet is an example. Even though he is a billionaire, his secretary is actually taxed more than him. She is getting penalized for being an employee, something that happens maybe to you too as you use hard work to increase your salary.
3. Put Your Money Away
This strategy worked well in the past, when the US dollar was actually worth something. It can still be useful, but only to a point. If hyperinflation happens, your savings do not mean anything. The $10,000 you were able to save today may only be worth $5,000 ten years down the road.
4. Eliminate Debt
In the past you had to work harder to get loans. This is because credit was not readily available. If you wanted to buy a house, you needed to have little debt and at least 10 percent down. Today, you need credit to build your financial portfolio. You just have to make sure you have a handle on your debt. Otherwise, it will become a stumbling block.
5. Use Your 401K to Diversify Mutual Funds Investments
The problem with this approach is that the mutual fund company takes most of the money. This is while you assume all of the risk. It is just not worth it considering the small percentage you will receive in the end. Plus, if you use your 401K for the funds, you are essentially spending away your retirement money.
Before, you could do this because stocks were just that profitable. They would earn tens of thousands even after the mutual fund company took their cut. Now stocks are not profitable enough to make such a return, especially as the economy continues to get worse.
There you have it‚ the old ways of making money. These are the rules that gave you in the past very happy lives. If they are applied now, you will earn a little bit of money, but you will limit your potential in the process. To become rich in the present day, you must learn the new rules of money.

The New Rules of Money

1.Start a Business at Home
In between your regular job, consider starting a business from home. In addition to being a lot of fun, at-home businesses tend to offer many tax benefits. This is because you are allowed to make more deductions. In some cases, you do not even have to buy anything. Your mortgage and utility bills by themselves could result in a generous deductible.
Do not become too enamored with your business, though. If you do not make enough to cover your household expenses, you need to do whatever you can to keep your day job. At most, you can consider getting your spouse to work a job while you do your business at home.
2. Be Entrepreneurial
To be entrepreneurial, you must think outside of the box. School alone will not teach you this skill. It is obtained through your creative mind. Use it to make money on your talents. For instance, if you love writing, you can make money self-publishing books. If you like to draw, you could freelance as an illustrator or sell T-shirts with catchy slogans. Handymen can help repair problems in people’s houses. The list of possibilities is endless.
3. Invest in Commodities
You should never keep your funds in dollar form. Instead, consider investing in gold, silver and other commodities. These tend to rise in value over time. So, when you go to sell them, you will end up doubling or tripling your original investment.
Going back to Warren Buffet, he was able to make millions with this very method. He invested much of his money in silver, during a time when that type of thing was not popular. Other investors laughed at him. They were not laughing when he sold his silver. Now other investors are earning thousands doing the exact same thing.
4. Make Debt an Advantage
Good debt not only makes you more attractive to lenders, but it can also earn you more money. For example, a business loan of $100K is indeed a big debt. However, if your business can make a decent return, it is a debt that is worth having. Debt can be an excellent leverage!
Your mortgage is another example. If it is paid off in its entirety, you have to pay property taxes out of your own pocket. In some jurisdictions, this could be tens of thousands‚ almost a mortgage in itself. To avoid this problem, consider renting out your property. With the money that the renter provides, you will be able to make a decent return while still letting the mortgage company handle your property taxes.
5. Do not Listen to Salespeople
The get-rich-quick schemes you see on television usually make suggestions based off of the old ways of making money. They sound good on the surface, but in the end only one person makes money; the individual who created the program.
Instead, consider reading materials created by people who do not have an agenda. Entrepreneurial magazines, blogs and similar resources can be used to gather more ideas on the new rules of money. Just remember to find information written by people who do as they say. Anything else is just a ploy designed to sell an over-priced product.
In conclusion, the new rules of money must be learned if you want to get out of a financial rut. The old rules of yesterday just do not apply anymore, even if they seem to make sense. As the dollar continues to inflate, and job security weakens, it is important to keep an open mind towards money-making. Doing so could make you a wealthier person.

Forewarned is forearmed. Informed decision about vaccines

Story at-a-glance

  • Thirteen percent of parents are now using an alternative vaccination schedule, and two percent refuse all vaccines for their children. Still, 28 percent of parents following the childhood vaccination schedule think it would be safer to delay the use of vaccines.
  • In German children, 11 percent of those vaccinated reported having ear infections, compared to less than 0.5 percent of unvaccinated children. Similarly, sinusitis was reported in over 32 percent of vaccinated children, while the prevalence in unvaccinated children was less than one percent.
  • There are important, basic differences between naturally-acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. As a parent, you need to educate yourself on each individual disease and corresponding vaccine in order to make an informed decision about the risks and benefits of the choices you make.
  • An important vaccine safety review was issued by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in August. According to this review of over 1,000 independent studies on vaccines, they were unable to determine whether or not vaccines are a causative factor in over 100 serious adverse health outcomes. In short: the research available is insufficient and cannot be used to confirm nor deny causation for many poor health outcomes and vaccinations.


By Dr. Mercola
In the first video above, Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) summarizes one of the most important scientific reviews on vaccines that was just published in August. 
Barbara has been a pioneer for the last 30 years in vaccine safety and informed consent, and this discussion is of grave importance to everyone, including pediatricians and doctors.

What You Must Know about the Latest Vaccine Safety Review by IOM

The report was released by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which is part of the National Academy of Sciences. 
They've been around for over 100 years. The institute analyzes health policies and issues advice to the US government.
They're funded not just by the government but also by pharmaceutical companies and independent philanthropic organizations and individuals.
They are considered a very prestigious scientific body in the world.
Dr. Mercola Recommends...
Every "Like" Helps Support This Cause
In the last three decades, the IOM has reviewed vaccine safety several times.
Their first reports came out in 1991 and 1994.
However, the latest report on this issue, released in August 2011 is very significant, and many still do not understand its true importance.
Over a period of three years, they reviewed over 1,000 studies on vaccines. Interestingly, they excluded studies funded by the pharmaceutical industry, although some of the studies were funded by government agencies independently.
The review focused on eight vaccines:
Hepatitis A-hepatitis B Measles, mumps and rubella vaccine Meningococcal vaccine Pneumococcal vaccine
Diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis, also known as DTaP or Tdap Varicella zoster (chickenpox) HPV vaccine Influenza vaccine

Perhaps the most important thing IOM did in this review is that they looked at two categories of science:
  1. Epidemiological research (large studies comparing different groups of people against each other)
  2. Bench science (research into the biological mechanisms at work within cells and molecules)
"This is very important because a lot of the studies that the CDC relies on as evidence that vaccines don't cause any problems are epidemiological studies. This report is important because they looked at both kinds of science," Barbara explains. "The most shocking conclusion of this report is that for more than a hundred bad health outcomes that have been reported after these eight vaccines have been given to people, they could not come to a conclusion as to whether or not those vaccines did or did not cause those adverse events!"
Some of those serious health problems included:
Multiple sclerosis Lupus Encephalitis (brain inflammation)
Rheumatoid arthritis Autism Encephalopathy, involving permanent brain damage

Why Couldn't IOM Conclude Whether Vaccines are Causative Factors?

Why is it that the IOM was unable to determine whether there was a direct causative link between vaccines and the many serious health outcomes indicated in these studies? Barbara suggests four potential explanations:
  1. The studies were not available in the published literature
  2. There were too few studies showing the same link
  3. The available studies were methodologically unsound
  4. The available studies were conflicting (i.e. there was evidence both for and against)
Says Barbara:
"What I call this category is the 'We Don't Know' category. When you think about it, these vaccines are mandated for children, and yet in most instances the scientific evidence [of safety] is so poor, they don't know! When the report came out there were a lot of organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics that came forth and said, "They didn't find causation… So vaccines are safe." That's NOT what that report said at all. I think people need to understand the significance of it… [T]he category of 'We Don't Know' is a very important category…"

Individual Susceptibility was Discussed as a Co-Factor

The IOM report also discussed individual susceptibility; the fact that some people are more susceptible for biological reasons, including genetic reasons, to having an adverse event after a vaccination. According to the report, both epidemiologic and mechanistic research suggests that most individuals who experience an adverse reaction to vaccines have a preexisting susceptibility. However, the report also states that in most cases they don't know what those individual susceptibilities are.
"They have taken a look and listed some that they believe are important," Barbara says
Potential predispositions suggested in the report include:
  • Genetic variation
  • Age
  • Coinciding illness
  • Environmental factors
"Every physician who gives a vaccine should read this 600-page report," Barbara says.  "That it is their responsibility because this is the latest report on the science of vaccination; of what's in the published literature. 
They really need to take it seriously because if a patient that they vaccinate, whether it's an adult or a child, has a deterioration in health after a vaccination… [the doctor] needs to not blow that off and say that's just a coincidence.  They need to take it seriously and make a report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), not to the manufacturer (who we know doesn't give the CDC and FDA the proper information for them to follow up). You need to report to the government. 
And you need to not give that person another vaccination, unless you know for sure that that health problem was not caused by the vaccine.  And guess what?  Science says in all these categories they don't know.  So the precautionary principle of "first do no harm," that has got to be responsibility of every physician giving a vaccine."

Many Parents Now Buck the System

About 13 percent of parents are now using an "alternative" vaccination schedule for their young children, according to a recent survey.  And two percent of parents are refusing vaccines altogether for their children.
According to Reuters:
"The Internet survey included 748 parents of kids between the ages of six months and six years. Of those, 13 percent said they used some type of vaccination schedule that differed from the CDC recommendations. That included refusing some vaccines or delaying vaccines until kids were older -- mostly because parents thought that 'seemed safer.'"
Among the parents who do follow the recommended childhood vaccination schedule, 28 percent still stated they think it would indeed be safer to delay the use of vaccines, and that the current vaccination schedule is far from ideal.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) vaccination schedule for children aged six and younger includes vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, whooping cough, chicken pox, hepatitis, seasonal flu, and others. All in all, U.S. children are expected to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they're six years old. By age 18, federal public health officials say they should have gotten a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines.
Is this safe and beneficial in the short- and/or long-term? No one really knows, primarily because large studies comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children have not been a priority for vaccine researchers. Most vaccine studies are about developing more vaccines for children and adults to use. 
Some claim studies comparing the health of highly vaccinated and unvaccinated children cannot be done because it would be "unethical" to leave children participating in the study unvaccinated in order to do the comparison.
But since there are numbers of American parents, who are already delaying or avoiding vaccinating their children altogether,  this hardly seems like a reasonable excuse. It seems more likely that comparing the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated children in appropriately designed studies are avoided because the results might upset the proverbial apple cart.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated: Survey Reveals Who's Healthier

However, that doesn't mean there is a total absence of evidence about the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children to give us an indication of whether or not the use of many more vaccines by children is contributing to their being chronically ill. In December 2010, a survey was initiated by VaccineInjury.info to compare the health of vaccinated children with unvaccinated children. To date over 7,850 surveys have been submitted, and the study is ongoing, so if you have an unvaccinated child (or are unvaccinated yourself) and would like to submit your child's health data, you can do so here.
Though this is obviously not a double-blind controlled study, and depends on the individuals submitting the data to give accurate information, it is still revealing. So far, the results show:
Health Condition Prevalence in Vaccinated Children Prevalence in Unvaccinated Children
Allergies 40% report at least one allergy Less than 10%
Asthma 6% 2.5%
Hayfever 10.7% of German children 2.5%
Neurodermatitis (an autoimmune disorder) 13% of German children 7%
ADHD 8% of German children, and another nearly 6% with borderline cases 1-2%
Middle ear infections 11% of German children Less than 0.5%
Sinusitis Over 32% of German children Less than 1%
Autism Approximately 1 in 100 Only 4 cases out of 7,800+ surveys (one child tested very high for metals, and another's mother tested very high for mercury)

Are the Risks All in Your Head?

CNN sounds like an advertisement for Big Pharma in this featured article, using a combination of scare-tactics and guilt-tripping trigger points, such as "parents have no knowledge of the diseases their children are being inoculated against," and "not only do unvaccinated children run the risk of becoming ill or worse, but they also endanger others who don't have the option to vaccinate."
Personally, I don't believe either of those statements reflect what's really happening. I believe the parents, who are taking a stand against their children being given too many vaccines, are the ones, who have taken the time to become informed and have carefully analyzed and evaluated the risks and benefits for their children.
As just discussed above, the only conclusion the IOM could reach after reviewing the available (independent) research is that we don't know if all of these vaccines, individually or together, are in fact safe.
The media would have you believe that those who refuse vaccines are ignorant but when you examine the facts, mothers with college educations and higher incomes are actually LESS likely to vaccinate their children than those with less education.
Besides, I don't think any parent, who is coming up against doctors throwing them out of their offices for refusing to use every recommended vaccine or wanting to use an individualized vaccination schedule, in this age of Big Pharma brainwashing, would even consider bucking the system without having good solid reason for doing so. After all, the price of nonconformity runs the gamut from being vilified by other parents and health professionals to being resolutely kicked out of some pediatricians' offices!
The fact is that delaying and/or opting out of some vaccines can indeed be a safer alternative to maintaining good health. Whether or not it's the most appropriate course of action for a particular child or adult can only be determined on a case-by-case basis. Each person is different, and it is these individual biological and environmental exposure differences that make a mass-vaccination policy so hazardous.
For example, the health of a child's gut flora can significantly influence the risk of suffering vaccine complications and chronic health problems. For more information about this, please see my interview with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.

CNN then goes on to discuss measles as if it were the ebola virus, completely ignoring the fact that many middle-aged and elderly parents in America today actually HAD the measles during childhood, and while uncomfortable, it was not considered a particularly dangerous disease for most healthy children. When I was young, having measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox was just a routine part of childhood.
Parents back then hoped that every child in the family and neighborhood would get those common childhood diseases and develop natural community immunity that lasted a lifetime. As a result, in generations past our population experienced those diseases in childhood and ended up with a qualitatively superior, longer lasting natural immunity and there were far fewer children suffering with chronic disease.

What You Need to Know about "Herd Immunity"

Typically, vaccine promoters will stress the importance of compliance with the vaccine schedule that requires multiple doses of a vaccine in order to create and maintain vaccine induced "herd immunity," because a vaccine is never 100 percent effective. However, they never quite seem to be able to explain why the majority of outbreaks occur in areas that are thought to HAVE herd immunity status, i.e. where the majority of people are vaccinated and "should" therefore never get the disease.
The problem is that there is in fact such a thing as natural herd immunity. But what's they've done is they've taken this natural phenomenon and assume that vaccines will work the same way. However, they do not, and the science clearly shows that there's a big difference between naturally arising herd immunity and vaccine-induced herd immunity.
To learn more, I urge you to listen to the second video above, in which Barbara discusses the concept of herd immunity.
"The original concept of herd immunity is that when a population experiences the natural disease… natural immunity would be achieved – a robust, qualitatively superior natural herd immunity within the population, which would then protect other people from getting the disease in other age groups. It's the way infectious diseases work…" Barbara explains. "But the vaccinologists have adopted this idea of vaccine induced herd immunity.
The problem with it is that all vaccines only confer temporary protection… Pertussis vaccine is one the best examples… Pertussis vaccines have been used for about 50 to 60 years, and the organism has started to evolve to become vaccine resistant. I think this is not something that's really understood generally by the public: Vaccines do not confer the same type of immunity that natural exposure to the disease does."
Vaccine professionals would like you to believe they are the same, but they're qualitatively two entirely different types of immune responses.
"In most cases natural exposure to disease would give you a longer lasting, more robust, qualitatively superior immunity because it gives you both cell mediated immunity and humoral immunity," Barbara explains. "Humoral is the antibody production. The way you measure vaccine-induced immunity is by how high the antibody titers are. (How many antibodies you have, basically.)
But the problem is, the cell mediated immunity is very important as well. Most vaccines evade cell mediated immunity and go straight for the antibodies, which is only one part of immunity. That's been the big problem with the production of vaccines."

Vaccines May Promote Viral Adaptation, Creating Vaccine-Resistant Diseases

Making matters worse, there's evidence indicating that certain viruses are adapting and becoming vaccine-resistant. For example, one study cited by Barbara in the second video above showed that progressive gene loss occurred in B. pertussis strains. This confirmed that B. pertussis is dynamic and continuously evolving, suggesting the bacteria may use gene loss as one strategy to adapt to highly immunized populations.
Survival is a universal principle, and viruses and bacteria are no exception.
"When you put pressure on a virus or bacteria that is circulating with the use of a vaccine that contains a lab altered form of that virus or bacteria, it doesn't seem illogical that the organism is going to find a way to adapt in order to survive."
There are many examples of such vaccine-resistance cropping up in the real world. Take last year's outbreak of mumps, for example. In the United States, children typically receive their mumps vaccination as part of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises children to receive their first dose between 12 and 18 months, and their second between the ages of 4 and 6.
The MMR vaccine is supposed to make you immune to measles, mumps and rubella … yet 77 percent of the 1,000+ who were sickened with mumps last year were vaccinated. This was NOT reported in the conventional media. They conveniently leave out this important fact.
Similarly, in 2006, when mumps infected more than 6,500 people in the United States, cases occurred primarily among college students who had received the recommended two doses of MMR vaccine. At that time, just about the only people who were truly immune to mumps were older Americans who had recovered from mumps as children, and therefore had received natural, lifelong immunity.

The Problem with Artificial Immunity (Vaccination)

It's important to understand that vaccines are never 100 percent protective because they usually provide only temporary, inferior immunity compared to that your body obtains from naturally experiencing, and recovering from, a disease. Vaccines are designed to trick your body's immune system into producing the antibodies needed to resist any future infection. However, your body is smarter than that. The artificial stimulation of your immune system produced by an attenuated or dead virus simply is not the same as your body engaging with and overcoming the real live virus.
According to Barbara Loe Fisher:
"The fact that manmade vaccines cannot replicate the body's natural experience with the disease is one of the key points of contention between those who insist that mankind cannot live without mass use of multiple vaccines and those who believe that mankind's biological integrity will be severely compromised by their continued use.
... [I]s it better to protect children against infectious disease early in life through temporary immunity from a vaccine, or are they better off contracting certain contagious infections in childhood and attaining permanent immunity?
Do vaccine complications ultimately cause more chronic illness and death than infectious diseases do? These questions essentially pit trust in human intervention against trust in nature and the natural order, which existed long before vaccines were created by man."

To Vaccinate or Not: It's a Serious Decision

There are basic differences between naturally acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. But few are willing to look at this issue -- least of all conventional medicine, which is so dominated by pharmaceutical companies seeking bigger markets and more profits from the investment they make in developing new vaccines..
Unfortunately, if we continue down the road they're paving for us, and they turn out to be wrong about the effictiveness, safety, and overall long-term side effects of vaccines, then we're on an extremely dangerous slippery slope. This is why I believe we really need an open and fearless conversation about vaccines; one that addresses the glaring questions about vaccine effectiveness (or lack thereof) and vaccine side effects, and leaves room for real, honest answers, and alternatives to our society's use of vaccination as the primary disease prevention tool.
Until that happens, however, it is imperative to continue to educate yourself and your family on the issues surrounding vaccinations of all kinds.
To help you locate all the latest vaccine information on my site, I've created a dedicated Vaccine News page. Bookmark it and return often. I also recommend you familiarize yourself with the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) web site. As a leader for vaccine safety, the NVIC offers information on everything from vaccine laws to late-breaking vaccine news and how you can get involved to protect vaccine choices in your state.
Vaccine Awareness Week

What You Can Do to Make a Difference

While it seems "old-fashioned," the only truly effective actions you can take to protect the right to informed consent to vaccination and expand vaccine exemptions, is to get personally involved with your state legislators and the leaders in your community.
Mass vaccination policies are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level, and it is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact.
Signing up for NVIC's free Advocacy Portal at www.NVICAdvocacy.org not only gives you access to practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community, but when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips to make sure your voice is heard.
So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Contact Your Elected Officials

Write or email your elected state representatives and share your concerns. Call them, or better yet, make an appointment to visit them in person in their office. Don't let them forget you!
It is so important for you to reach out and make sure your concerns get on the radar screen of the leaders and opinion makers in your community, especially the politicians you elect and are directly involved in making vaccine laws in your state. These are your elected representatives, so you have a right and a responsibility to let them know what's really happening in your life and the lives of people you know when it comes to vaccine mandates. Be sure to share the "real life" experiences that you or people you know have had with vaccination.

Share Your Story with the Media and People You Know

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury or death, please talk about it. If we don't share information and experiences with each other, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.
I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the "other side" of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down.  Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.
We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies to dominate the conversation about vaccination. The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than "statistically acceptable collateral damage" of national one-size-fits-all mass vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn't be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

Internet Resources Where You Can Learn More

I encourage you to visit the following web pages on the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) website at www.NVIC.org:
  • NVIC Memorial for Vaccine Victims: View descriptions and photos of children and adults, who have suffered vaccine reactions, injuries and deaths. If you or your child experiences an adverse vaccine event, please consider posting and sharing your story here.
  • If You Vaccinate, Ask 8 Questions: Learn how to recognize vaccine reaction symptoms and prevent vaccine injuries.
  • Vaccine Freedom Wall: View or post descriptions of harassment by doctors or  government officials for making independent vaccine choices.

Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One that Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don't want,  I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.
However, there is hope.
At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they're starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents. It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.
So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.
