This episode of iRescueRadio was originally released in November of 2008. In it we discussed how stem cells have shown to help the body accept an organ transplant; we investigated the reasons for misdiagnosis of asthma and other illnesses, such as overworked doctors and excess paperwork; a new skin cancer vaccine is discussed; and the power of sleep as a memory aid and an important agent to fight cancer.
Hello again rescue fans!
In this episode, I dig into a subject that is sure to cause controversy. But…for those who know me, when have I ever steered clear from that? So, after being made aware of a situation where a mother was forced to sign a waiver that stated something to the effect, “I understand that by not getting my children vaccinated with the flu shot, I am endangering society…blah…blah, etc.”. This caused me to be a little curious about what all this unreasonable pressure is about in getting the flu shot. Is it really that good? Is it really that effective? Is it really that safe? I mean, since when has an epidemic every been prevented by a flu shot? The last flu pandemic was in like 1969 but it still was not like the one in 1918! And since then, we suddenly think that in 2008 we should be developing a flu vaccine to save countless lives? Well, this would all be fine and well if we didn’t have to worry about potentially dangerous substances found in the medium of the vaccine. In fact, more and more reliable research is being uncovered all the time about the potential risks of vaccinations that contain toxic substances like Thimerosal which is a mercury derivative and a highly toxic heavy metal and a carcinogenic called Polysorbate 80 (also known as Tween 80): Generally contaminated with the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane. Not to mention the possible side effects of allergies, asthma and autism linked to the adjuvant. So, before you take the plunge, I think it’s a good idea to do your own research, find credible websites including the CDC itself and look at the real research to see if the risk of injecting these chemicals are really worth the possible but not guaranteed benefits of getting the flu shot. I hope it helps.
This is another episode that you won’t want to miss. We talk about buying Roses for Valentine’s Day, with a story about Dan’s first date. It’s a lot of laughs as we then move the topic of conversation toward a chemical effect on Romance.
We then delve into Legionnaires’ Disease and Pontiac Fever for a bit.
We end the episode talking about a Court ruling that a vaccine is not to blame for autism. This is a huge ruling with the many families that have been effected by this possible connection. I had seen an episode of the television show Eli Stone that deals with that issue. As it turns out, that episode caused a controversy in the medical field, as it was thought that people would be lead to believe that vaccines will lead to autism.
The episode of Eli Stone is not discussed here, but the link and the court decision are discussed at length.
This episode of iRescueRadio covers the impact of wearing scrubs outside of the hospital, and the disease that resides within those scrubs.
The talk then turns to coffee, as new research is suggesting that coffee is actually good for you. Or at least better than we had initially thought.
The topic then turns toward health care and check-ups via the internet.
Sleep is next on the agenda, as it is a very valuable part of life, and can help to combat disease.
After that is a long discussion on vaccinations.
All of this and more in this episode of iRescueRadio. We’ve packed a lot of discussion in this one, and we hope that you enjoy it!
