Health Tip Of The Week...
Some Non-Depressing News
Last week we reported on anti-depressant drugs and have received questions about natural alternatives to drugs. In addition to having a healthy nervous system, a recent study published in the journal of the AMA found that the "Mediterranean Diet" may not only improve heart health but mental health as well!
Time to Think about Vaccinations
During the first week of February, 2010, there was an outbreak of mumps among more that 1000 people in New York and New Jersey. An outbreak like this is, in and of itself, not that unusual. What is unusual is that the health authorities admitted that "most of the people infected with mumps had already been vaccinated against mumps."
In Ocean County, New Jersey, county spokeswoman Leslie Terjesen told CNN that "77% of those who caught mumps had already been vaccinated against mumps."
So, this mumps outbreak spread among people who were vaccinated against mumps. What is wrong with this picture?
The vaccine industry wants the public to believe that vaccines are effective at preventing infection. But now, intelligent observers are increasingly seeing the truth about these vaccines.
Here are some things to think about:
• It is now clear that even if you're vaccinated against a disease, you may still catch that disease anyway! So, what's the point of the vaccine?
• Infectious disease vaccines simply don't work. If they did, then why did all these children, who were already vaccinated, still get mumps?
• Vaccines may actually increase your risk of disease. It is interesting that far more vaccinated children were stricken with mumps than non-vaccinated children.
The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…
Such simple solutions… "The Mediterranean diet is high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, cereals, fish, and monounsaturated fatty acids like those found in olive oil. It is low in meat, and intake of alcohol and dairy products are kept to moderate levels. Prior research has shown a significant connection between the Mediterranean diet and a lower risk of heart disease and cancer." As we've always said…we get well and stay well through healthy lifestyle choices…not drugs!
