Deuce Bigalow, MD

Local politician goes toe-to-toe with ‘Deuce Bigalow’ actor over proposed changes to vaccination law

“He just has faulty information,” said Gonzalez. “I told him I’d be more than happy to look at any study that’s a peer-review study, that’s scientific, to suggest the things that he was talking about. The problem is they don’t exist.”

The sssemblywoman then posted on her Facebook page, “That is 20 minutes of my life I’ll never get back arguing that vaccines don’t cause autism with Deuce Bigalow, male gigolo.”

Autism not linked to vaccinations

The Politics of Measles - The New Yorker

The Politics of Measles - The New Yorker

…An infamous 1998 study in The Lancet, which claimed that the rising incidence of autism was linked to vaccinations, was particularly influential with some of those parents—even though the data were found to be falsified and the author’s medical license was revoked

[…]

…Asked about immunization on CNN last week, Senator Rand Paul, a potential Republican candidate for President—and a doctor—painted a pointlessly terrifying scenario: “I’ve heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.” No doubt, he has heard such stories, but the evidence does not support them

I cherry picked what I thought most important.

as you know, i don’t have kids. for what it’s worth, i always get any vaccination that comes down the pike. i have a little more faith in american/western medicine than they deserve but i’ve never had any relief from acupuncture or other things people swear by.
i could go off on at least 3 different rants here but i’ll spare you.

oh fer fucks sakes!
i am not being efficient with my words.
i think that the right wing jesus fever types are dangerous. i am sometimes at a loss for evidence. this is an excellent example.

Prime beef example. I heard soOo much hoopla about vaccines causing autism but never a peep about bullshit data until now. It’s sad really. The kids suffer and die because of their parent’s stubbornness and/or ignorance.

It was always the stories about the Christian Scientists when I was a kid. Refusing medical attention because it would be Dog’s will if you lived or died. We just thought they were mental.

Now “data” is being pulled out of someone’s ass to refute medical science. That’s right people, it’s MOFO SCIENCE. When every parent becomes medical professional I’ll cut them some slack

tcr! tcr! · Feb 18, 2015 at 10:27 pm

This topic is the same as global warming. It’s all hearsay even though science has proven otherwise. It’s undeniably disgusting.

I read once that the reason children lie, etc. is because their physical brains have not developed enough to comprehend their actions. They are literally and technically incapable of absorbing what their parents are trying to teach them is wrong.

It’s only after they’ve physically grown a certain amount that they’re able to comprehend.

I wholeheartedly believe that some parts of some adult brains are still in that toddler state — completely unable to perform simple and logical functions.

I don’t know what other explanation for such ignorance could be.

I feel that I’ve come across as smug and enlighten. I feel that’s okay.

t: as spokesman for the smug, we rarely include you in our numbers. enlightenment is another story. i’ve seen you at the meetings.

After Surgery, Surprise $117,000 Medical Bill From Doctor He Didn’t Know

After Surgery, Surprise $117,000 Medical Bill From Doctor He Didn’t Know

In operating rooms and on hospital wards across the country, physicians and other health providers typically help one another in patient care. But in an increasingly common practice that some medical experts call drive-by doctoring, assistants, consultants and other hospital employees are charging patients or their insurers hefty fees. They may be called in when the need for them is questionable. And patients usually do not realize they have been involved or are charging until the bill arrives.

uh…Yes.
I had a pt last week who asked me, and what he was really doing was venting/complaining, why he had to have a sleep test when he had originally complained of a cough. I was in a gregarious mood and opined that what I had learned in health care was, “what i don’t want to know”.
Did I say gregarious? Of course I meant nefarious.

Obama is Infecting Christians with Ebola To Destroy Jesus and Start A New Age of Liberal Darkness

Obama is Infecting Christians with Ebola To Destroy Jesus and Start A New Age of Liberal Darkness

Barack Obama has used genetics to manufacture the most powerful virus in the history of mankind. The virus is an evolved form of EBOLA, a deadly virus that causes the body to bleed to death in a week.

According to sources, there is an antidote for the virus. The cure was tested at the CDC facility in Georgia this week, where an infected doctor has been nearly cured, against all odds.

Keep in mind, Obama-era evolution of Ebola has already killed thousands in Africa, and only moments ago, a person dropped dead in London from Obama-Ebola.

Do no forget, the B.O. in Ebola stands for Barack Obama. The rest of the acronym has been up for debate in the news media community.

That sneaky Obama.

'Vegetative' Man Has His Say

‘Vegetative’ Man Has His Say

Scott Routley hasn’t spoken or even followed family members with his eyes since his car accident 12 years ago. But he managed to indicate to doctors this spring that he was not in pain.

And he did it by imagining his playing tennis as researchers watched for certain areas of his brain scan to light up during an fMRI, something he and neuroscientist Adrian Owen worked out as a signal for “no” over a series of sessions. The breakthrough technique proved Routley isn’t in a vegetative state, as doctors thought. He’s aware of the world around him.

“Some people can look like they’re vegetative but still have awareness inside their head. I think it’s a very important finding,” said Bryan Young, the neurologist at University Hospital in London, Ontario, who has treated Routley for the past decade.

“It really made the point to me that we need to go beyond the clinical evaluation to be conclusive about whether a patient is really in a vegetative state or not.”

Young met Routley, 39, after he came out of his coma 10 years ago. The car-crash victim had severe damage to both brain hemispheres, and woke up in what doctors thought to be a vegetative state, which the Mayo Clinic defines as resulting from severe brain damage and renders a person “unaware of his or her surroundings.”

The Science for Growing Body Parts is Here

tcr! · Sep 27, 2012 at 9:17 pm

What the Doctor Ordered: Building New Body Parts

What the Doctor Ordered: Building New Body Parts

Spray-on skin, made-to-order muscle, and print-out kidneys aren’t just science fiction anymore. Dr. Anthony Atala and Dr. Stephen Badylak, two pioneers of regenerative medicine, talk about the latest methods for building new body parts, and the challenge of growing complex organs like the heart, liver or brain.

Note: If you’d like to sign up for the Traumatic Limb Muscle Loss Clinical Trials, please contact Allyson LaCovey at 412-624-5308 or lacoveya2@upmc.edu. More information about the trial can be found on this study recuitment flyer, at the trial website, or Dr. Badylak’s laboratory website.

Good way to spend 20 minutes and learn about the marvels of medical science. The Science Friday website is also a joy to browse — both visually and educationally.

So Long Health Insurance Companies

tcr! · Feb 3, 2012 at 10:00 am

The End of Health Insurance Companies

The End of Health Insurance Companies

But thanks to the accountable care organizations provided for by the health care reform act, a new system is on its way, one that will make insurance companies unnecessary. Accountable care organizations will increase coordination of patient’s care and shift the focus of medicine away from treating sickness and toward keeping people healthy.

It’s an opinion piece but I say good riddance.
