In NYC, the unvaccinated are condemned and segregated as the new sub-human class … in a society now rooted in medical discrimination and hateful bigotry

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a new plan to permanently discriminate and segregate the unvaccinated from society, and Joe Biden supports it. De Blasio the tyrant said the unvaccinated have no right to have a job, to eat at a counter, to ride on a bus or enter a building. He is seeking to punish people for their private medical choices by excluding them from restaurants, workplaces, gymnasiums, entertainment and events. The discriminatory plan will be phased in over several weeks in August and September. Continue reading

The Scientific Side of Steroid Use and Abuse

Leslie Henderson is concerned about steroid abuse, not necessarily by sports luminaries like Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire, but rather by adolescents.

“There is this disconnect among young people that somehow your emotions, your thought processes—things that have to do with your brain—are separate and different from what steroids may be doing to your body—your muscles, your heart, or your liver, or anything like that,” says Henderson, a professor of physiology and neurobiology, and of biochemistry at the Geisel School of Medicine Continue reading

Research Shows Less Empathy towards Patients that Abuse ER Services

About 60% of emergency physicians say they have less empathy for so-called frequent-flier patients who visit the ED more than 10 times a year.

Nearly 80% told researchers they hold some bias against these patients, and 82% said caring for them contributes to their level of burnout, according to survey data presented at the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine’s June annual meeting in Boston.

“The emergency room is becoming their primary source of care, and it’s not any ER’s goal to be an outpatient care provider. That’s not the model of what the ER is supposed to be,” said Jennifer Peltzer-Jones, PsyD, who led the survey team. “If you look at burnout, there’s that lack of a sense of personal accomplishment. The ER model is you fix the patient and you get them out. If the patient keeps coming back  Continue reading

Childhood Physical Abuse Linked To Arthritis, Study Finds

TORONTO  — Adults who had experienced physical abuse as children have 56 per cent higher odds of osteoarthritis compared to those who have not been abused, according to a new study by University of Toronto researchers.

University of Toronto researchers investigated the relationship between self-reported childhood physical abuse and a diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA). After analyzing representative data from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey, the researchers determined a significant association between childhood physical abuse and osteoarthritis in adulthood.

The study is published in the November issue of the journal Arthritis Care & Research.

Osteoarthritis is an often debilitating chronic condition that affects millions of adults. “We found that 10.2 per cent of those with osteoarthritis reported they had been physically abused as children in comparison to 6.5 per cent of those without osteoarthritis,” says lead author Esme Fuller-Thomson of U of T’s Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and Department of Family and Community Medicine. “This study provides further support for the need to investigate the possible role that childhood abuse plays in the development of chronic illness.”

Co-author Sarah Brennenstuhl, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, stated that, “We were surprised that the significant association between childhood physical abuse and osteoarthritis persisted even after controlling for major potentially confounding factors such as obesity, physical activity levels as well as age, gender, income and race.”

According to Fuller-Thomson, one important avenue for future research is to investigate the pathways through which arthritis may develop as a consequence of childhood physical abuse.
