Measles cases up 41% in the past 2 weeks

Having eclipsed141 cases in 2015, there is an urgent need to vaccinate our communities against measles (Rubeola) and other vaccine preventable diseases. Measles virus is extraordinarily easy to transmit to others and that impacts 90% of susceptible individuals who are exposed to a measles case. Parents, do not forget to get your adult recommended vaccine boosters, including the Measles vaccine, particularly individuals who have high exposure risks.

Measles component of the MMR:

  • A routine second dose of MMR vaccine, administered a minimum of 28 days after the first dose, is recommended for adults who:
    • are students in postsecondary educational institutions,
    • work in a health care facility, or
    • plan to travel internationally.

Energy drinks significantly increase hyperactivity in schoolchildren

obesity

Middle-school children who consume heavily sweetened energy drinks are 66% more likely to be at risk for hyperactivity and inattention symptoms, a new study led by the Yale School of Public Health has found.

“Our results support the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation that parents should limit consumption of sweetened beverages and that children should not consume any energy drinks.”

In addition to hyperactivity and inattention, heavily sugared beverages also impact childhood obesity, notes Ickovics, and sugar-sweetened beverages are a leading cause of added calories in the diets of obese children. Currently, about one-third of American schoolchildren are considered overweight or obese.

Marijuana use could explain excessive daytime sleepiness in some teens

THC

Narcolepsy – extreme bouts of sleepiness that can strike at any time – affects around 1 in 2,000 people in the US. A new study raises concerns about its diagnosis in adolescents, after it identified marijuana in the urine of some teenagers who had symptoms consistent with narcolepsy.

The researchers say their findings indicate that marijuana use may be linked to EDS in some adolescents, and that urine drug screening should form a part of clinical evaluation for narcolepsy.

This is just another example of how this plant-based nutrition think-tank is full steam ahead. The China Study certainly tells a very compelling and riveting story of how plant-based nutrition is an essential part to living a healthy life. I applaud the plant-based nutrition movement helping individuals reverse serious health concerns and emphasizing a mission promoting wellness over disability!

100 Measles cases, what can we do now?

Jeffrey A. Hirschfield, MD CPI

We know now that the current measles “outbreak” started at an amusement park in California-Disneyland and that this outbreak accounts for 92% of the known cases as of January 30, 2015.  What we should do as a country is take this unfortunate event and raise public awareness about the importance of preventative vaccinations. With falsified data from Dr. Andrew Wakefield , a London physician, and a subsequent publication that linked MMR vaccination to autism in a 1998 Lancet journal article we have seen a wave of anti-vaccine activists and skeptics who do not vaccinate their children.  We need to take this opportunity to ramp up public education efforts on successful vaccination programs on all fronts and clearly show how they have overwhelmingly benefited society at large. In addition, many case reports and disease specific rates for decades at historically low levels now have begun to rise for whooping cough and chickenpox just to name…
