Homeless people defecating on LA streets fuels horror hepatitis outbreak

skid_row

Great job demorats!

From Fox News: An outbreak of hepatitis A is spreading through Los Angeles County after leaping from a large homeless contingent in San Diego, threatening thousands of people and fueling criticism that local officials have not done enough to contain the deadly liver disease.

Hundreds of cases have turned up in southern California as well as Michigan — but conditions in Los Angeles, where roughly 50,000 people live on the streets, have prompted deeper concerns.

Reports compiled by volunteer organizations have faulted city officials for not providing enough accessible toilets as the homeless population sharply increased by 23 percent this year.

In a prescient warning, a June 2017 report by a collection of nonprofits called the LA Central Providers Collaborative sounded the alarm about crowding and living conditions on Skid Row, citing the city’s own predictions about the increased risk for hepatitis A and other diseases.

“One would think that Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world, would exceed these minimal standards. However, this Audit finds that in Skid Row, Los Angeles fails to meet even the standards for a refugee camp,” the report said. “During overnight hours, there are only nine public toilets available for 1,777 unsheltered homeless people on Skid Row, and these toilets are largely inaccessible.”

The report noted that United Nations’ refugee camp standards are one toilet for every 20 people.

Fast-forward to September, and the county declared an outbreak affecting homeless people and illicit drug users. The disease also is rising among gay and bisexual men, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health noted in a Nov. 2 advisory.

Los Angeles currently has 31 hepatitis cases – 15 among the homeless and 16 gay men.

Toilet access is a chief concern, as the disease can be contracted by ingesting or touching anything contaminated with infected feces. Homeless individuals without bathroom access defecating on the streets spreads the disease. 

Seventeen miles away is the community of Venice, a trendy beachside haven made famous by a young Arnold Schwarzenegger who once lifted weights in a makeshift gym set up along a boardwalk. The homeless liked the area, too, and the population has grown to about 1,000. The area has nine toilet stalls, none which are open at night.

Los Angeles County, meanwhile, has 42,828 homeless living on the streets, which swells to more than 50,000 during the day when many leave overnight shelters. Most are within the city of Los Angeles, which has a total of 2,800 toilets and 800 urinals located in parks that are open during daylight hours.

Neutrogena spokeswoman actress Gabrielle Union advocates rimming

Are we in Hell yet?

Gabrielle Union, 44, is an actress whose movies (The Brothers, Deliver Us from Eva, etc.) and TV show of which I’d never heard, even less watched.

She is also a spokeswoman for Neutrogena, which no doubt is just delighted with her graphic sex talk on the SiriusXM satellite radio show Sway in the Morning — on masturbation (beginning when she was 5 years old), fellatio, cunnilingus, and “rimming,” aka “eating ass” — the licking of someone’s anus.

Union said everyone “eats ass” but they won’t admit to it, and that young people should be taught to “eat ass” because “you gotta teach these kids, you gotta get them young”.

It is because of “rimming” that intestinal parasites ordinarily found in the tropics are encountered in the bodies of American gay men. An extremely high rate of parasitic and other intestinal infections is documented among male homosexual practitioners because of oral-anal contact. There are so many infections that a syndrome called “the Gay Bowel” is described in the medical literature. Gay bowel syndrome includes such diseases as Hepatitis A, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica,Epstein-Barr virus,Neisseria meningitides,Shigellosis, Salmonellosis, Pediculosis, scabies, Campylobacter, and typhoid.

Here’s contact info. for Neutrogena:

This is the email I sent Neutrogena. Feel free to use as yours:

Why does Neutrogena have as your spokeswoman actress Gabrielle Union who engaged in graphic sex talk on the SiriusXM satellite radio show “Sway in the Morning” — on masturbation, fellatio, cunnilingus, and “rimming,” aka “eating ass” — the licking of someone’s anus? Worse yet, she said young people should be taught to “eat ass” because “you gotta teach these kids, you gotta get them young”.

Does Neutrogena not know that rimming is extremely unhealthy — the opposite of the healthy image your company projects for its products?

Shame on you for having Gabrielle Union as your spokeswoman. I will shun Neutrogena, because your products are now forever associated with the disgusting and medically-hazardous behavior of rimming.

CDC: Venereal diseases at all time high, esp. among homo/bisexual men

Are we in Hell yet?

Lisa Bourne reports for LifeSiteNews that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) rose to an all-time high in the United States last year, “creating a threat that’s challenging the health field.”

Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, warned that the STD threat is rising faster than health providers can respond:

“Increases in STDs are a clear warning of a growing threat. STDs are a persistent enemy, growing in number, and outpacing our ability to respond.”

According to the CDC’s annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released on Sept. 26, 2017:

(1) More than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported nationwide in 2016, the highest number ever.

(2) Most of the new cases diagnosed (1.6 million) were chlamydia, which affects both sexes.

(3) Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) led in gonorrhea and syphilis:

  • While gonorrhea increased among men and women in 2016 (to 470,000 cases), gonorrhea registered the sharpest increase, at 22%, among men. The CDC report said: “Research suggests that a large share of new gonorrhea cases are occurring among MSM. These trends are particularly alarming in light of the growing threat of drug resistance to the last remaining recommended gonorrhea treatment.
  • Syphilis rates increased from 2015 to 2016 by nearly 18% to nearly 28,000, the majority of which are among men who have sex with men. More alarming still, half of MSM diagnosed with syphilis also have HIV.

(4) Along with gay and bisexual men, STDs are also accelerating in women and infants:

  • Syphilis increased 36% among women.
  • Syphilis increased 28% (600+ cases) among newborns (congenital syphilis), resulting in “more than 40 deaths and severe health complications among newborns”. Gail Bolan, director of CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, said congenital syphilis is entirely preventable and treatable: “Every baby born with syphilis represents a tragic systems failure. All it takes is a simple STD test and antibiotic treatment to prevent this enormous heartache and help assure a healthy start for the next generation of Americans.”

All three STDs — chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis — can be cured with antibiotics. But if they remain undiagnosed and untreated, they can have serious health consequences, including infertility, life-threatening ectopic pregnancy, infant stillbirth, and increased risk for HIV transmission.

New study finds aluminum in vaccines triggers autism, esp. in boys

Despite the MSM and the medical establishment’s demonization of vaccine skeptics (see “Baylor U. professor & M.D. Carol Baker: ‘Let’s just get rid of all the whites in the United States’ (includes discussion on enforcing childhood vaccination, we actually do have compelling evidence of the deleterious effects of vaccines. See:

Particularly troubling is the association of childhood vaccination and autism. See:

Now, a new study has pinpointed the aluminum in vaccines as the agent in triggering autism, especially in boys.

The study was conducted by a team of four scientists at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada:

  • Dan Li, Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.
  • Lucija Tomljenovic, Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.
  • Yongling Li,  Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.
  • Christopher A. Shaw, Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Program in Experimental Medicine, and Program in Neuroscience.

The four scientists reported their findings in an article titled, “Subcutaneous injections of aluminum at vaccine adjuvant levels activate innate immune genes in mouse brain that are homologous with biomarkers of autism,” in the peer-reviewed Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, Volume 177, December 2017, pp. 39-54.

Here’s a summary of the study:

  • Vaccines contain aluminum adjuvant — a pharmacological agent added to a drug to increase or aid its effect.
  • The scientists injected aluminum into mice.
  • The aluminum had neuro-inflammatory effects on the mice’s frontal cortex.
  • The frontal cortex is  involved in emotional and social functions which are impaired in autism.
  • Male mice are especially susceptible to aluminum’s neuro-toxic effects.

Abstract

Autism is a neurobehavioral disorder characterized by immune dysfunction. It is manifested in early childhood, during a window of early developmental vulnerability where the normal developmental trajectory is most susceptible to xenobiotic insults. Aluminum (Al) vaccine adjuvants are xenobiotics with immunostimulating and neurotoxic properties to which infants worldwide are routinely exposed. To investigate Aluminum′s immune and neurotoxic impact in vivo, we tested the expression of 17 genes which are implicated in both autism and innate immune response in brain samples of Aluminum-injected mice in comparison to control mice. Several key players of innate immunity, such as cytokinesCCL2, IFNG and TNFA, were significantly upregulated, while the nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-κB) inhibitor NFKBIB, and the enzyme controlling the degradation of the neurotransmitteracetylcholine (ACHE), were downregulated in Aluminum-injected male mice. Further, the decrease of the NF-κB inhibitor and the consequent increase in inflammatory signals, led to the activation of the NF-κB signaling pathway resulting in the release of chemokineMIP-1A and cytokines IL-4 and IL-6. It thus appears that Aluminum triggered innate immune system activation and altered cholinergicactivity in male mice, observations which are consistent with those in autism. Female mice were less susceptible to Aluminum exposure as only the expression levels of NF-κB inhibitor and TNFA were altered. Regional patterns of gene expression alterations also exhibited gender differences, as frontal cortex was the most affected area in males and cerebellum in females. Thus, Aluminum adjuvant promotes brain inflammation and males appear to be more susceptible to Aluminum′s toxic effects.

Graphical abstract

Upon peripheral injection, aluminum activates the nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-κB) pathway in the brain, resulting in the release of proinflammatory molecules. The increased immunoinflammatory signal downregulates the activity of acetylcholinesterase to activate acetylcholine-mediated immunosuppression. If immunosuppression is not achieved, the excessive immunoinflammatory response may impair neurodevelopmental processes producing autistic pathology.

Some other observations from the article:

  • Aluminum is an environmental toxin with demonstrated negative impact on human health, especially the nervous system, to which humans are regularly exposed.
  • Aluminum can enter the human body through various sources including food, drinking water, many infant formulas, cosmetic products, cooking utensils and pharmaceutical products including antacids and vaccines.
  • Why aluminum in vaccines is particularly toxic: Compared to dietary aluminum of which only ~ 0.25% is absorbed into systemic circulation, aluminum from vaccines is poorly excreted by the body and may be absorbed at over 50% efficiency in the short term and at nearly 100% efficiency long-term. Thus, vaccine-derived Al has a much greater potential to produce toxic effects in the body than that obtained through diet.
  • Aluminum in vaccines affect other body organs, not just the brain: In a series of experiments, a French group found that aluminum injected in vaccine-relevant amounts into 8–10 week old mice (mimicking the amount that adult humans receive through vaccinations) is able to travel to distant organs including the spleen and the brain, where it can be detected one year after injection.
  • Furthermore, aluminum not just damages specific body organs, it triggers the body’s “systemic inflammatory responses.”
  • Even dietary aluminum is deleterious, shown to accumulate in our central nervous system over time, resulting in Alzheimer’s type disease. Aluminum’s neurotoxic effect has also been observed in experimental animals fed equivalent amounts of aluminum to what humans consume through a typical Western diet.

The study concludes:

Altogether, these observations show that the adjuvant form of Aluminum has a unique potential to induce neuroimmune disorders, including those of the autism spectrum.

Given that infants worldwide are regularly exposed to Aluminum adjuvants through routine pediatric vaccinations, it seemed warranted to reassess the neurotoxicity of Aluminum in order to determine whether Aluminum may be considered as one of the potential environmental triggers involved in ASD (autism spectrum disorders).

Moroccan Muslims got rabies from raping donkey

Deuteronomy 27:21

“Cursed is the man who has sexual relations with any animal”

Morocco World News reports, August 10, 2017, that 15 Muslim teens who raped a donkey in the small rural town of Sidi Kamel in Sidi Kacem province, Morocco, have been treated for rabies infections contracted from the animal.

According to the Moroccan daily Al Akhbar in its August 10 edition, the “sexually frustrated children and teenagers” stayed at the Mechraa Belksiri Hospital for one week to receive rabies vaccinations after the animal transmitted the disease to them, to the “distress and horror” of their families.

Sadly, the local authorities ordered the owner of the donkey to slaughter it to avoid further risk of spreading the disease. The authorities are also searching for others who had  “admired” the donkey, in order to limit the spread of rabies among the town folk.

Parents, “in the utmost secrecy, hastened to have their children vaccinated in case they had approached the animal.” According to Al Akhbar, the number of infections could be much higher, as some families preferred to take their children to hospitals outside the region to avoid humiliation.

Bestialists should know that a study of 492 men from rural Brazil found that 35% reported having had sex with an animal at some point in their lives, and that those men were twice as likely to develop cancer of the penis.

142 people fell ill from fecal contaminated food in UK Muslim restaurant

Last November, I first posted about the disgusting toilet habit of Muslims in “Muslim washes his anus at public drinking fountain in Italy”.

But it’s one thing for Muslims to use their (left) hands, instead of toilet paper, to “clean” their butts after defecating. It’s another thing entirely when Muslim restaurant employees do that and then contaminate food and drinks that they serve to the public, which I chronicled in two subsequent posts:

Here’s more evidence that this disgusting Muslim practice is a public health hazard.

The BBC reports that in June 2014, a rare strain of E. coli – only the second outbreak of its kind in Europe – was found at The Khyber Pass, a kebab take-out restaurant in Nottingham, England. More than 140 customers fell ill from Khyber Pass’s food that was contaminated with human feces.

An investigation by Nottingham City Council led to the discovery that the food poisoning organism responsible was Enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC). EIEC is only found in the human gut and so inspectors concluded people affected by the outbreak must have eaten food contaminated with human feces. The outbreak was traced to the kebab shop after analysis of fecal specimens from patients showed that the same strain of EIEC was found in lettuce prepared by food workers at Khyber Pass.

Paul Dales, from Nottingham City Council’s food, health and safety team, said:

“This was a significant and serious food poisoning outbreak affecting a large number of people, some of whom developed severe symptoms. It’s fortunate there were no fatalities, as this is a strain of E. coli rarely found in the developed world, this being only the second confirmed outbreak in Europe. It’s clear that hand-washing practices by some workers were wholly inadequate and this led to food becoming contaminated.”

In August, appearing at Nottingham Crown Court, the Pakistani owners of Kyber Pass, Mohammad Abdul Basit and Amjad Bhatti, pleaded guilty to breaching food hygiene regulations, including selling food unfit for human consumption, poor personal cleanliness of food workers, and inadequate hand washing facilities and drainage. Incredibly, Basit and Bhatti were ordered to pay each victim £200 in exchange for a suspended four month jail sentence.

King County defends safe injection sites as a “public health service”

druge injection

I understand there is an opioid epidemic in the U.S. right now. I would rather see taxes used for a rehabilitation facility than for an injection site. Yet I’m sure it’s much harder to get an addict into rehab than it is to allow them to shoot up.

From MyNorthwest.com: King County (Washington state) health officials took to Facebook to address mounting concerns over planned safe injection sites.

Public Health Officer Jeff Duchin and Brad Findgood, who previously co-chaired the county’s Heroin and Prescription Opiate Addiction Task Force, were on hand during the live event hosted by Public Health – Seattle & King County.

“These are locations that are public health services, that provide a safe space for people who are already using drugs in public spaces,” Duchin said. “… allow them to come indoors, under the supervision of a healthcare worker, use their drugs and have an overdose reversed if they should suffer from an overdose …”

“Certainly, we don’t believe someone should be pushed out onto the street after they are given clean injection equipment … and told to go inject in an alleyway, or in a restroom of a coffee shop, unattended, where you could die alone when we could save a life,” he continued.

But anxiety over the actual safety of safe injection sites has grown in King County. A Bothell councilmember even started a petition to ban them. It’s those concerns that Duchin and Finegood attempted to address.

Do safe injection sites encourage drug use?

The closest facility to Seattle is in Vancouver B.C. But the safe injection system has been used in Europe for some time, Finegood said. Therefore, there is evidence and studies available to help gauge their effects.

Duchin argued that the facilities don’t increase drug use, rather, they divert current drug use and directly engage users and more efficiently address the problem.

Duchin points out that there were similar concerns surrounding needle exchanges. Now, he says exchanges are a “safe and effective intervention to save lives and prevent disease.”

“I think we are going to see the same thing with these supervised consumption facilities in the United States. We’re just a little bit behind the curve,” he said. “Giving people a safe place to inject who are already injecting in unsafe ways, doesn’t in any way invite more drug use,” he added.

Where will the facilities be located?

What is known is that one facility is planned for Seattle and another for greater King County. But no exact locations have been decided.

“We have no interest in siting these in a community that doesn’t have these problems,” Finegood said. “The idea behind a supervised consumption space is: Where are the problems already happening? Where are people overdosing outside? Where are needles being discarded outside? Where are people dying from heroin use?”

“We have a lot of that information … people are already using publicly. We know that,” he said. “I came across somebody overdosing last week on my walk to the bus. A colleague walked into a Starbucks a couple weeks ago and somebody was overdosing in the bathroom. These things are happening already. This is just an intervention that says, You do not need to use alone. You do not need to be stigmatized, or have prejudice, or discrimination because of your illness. Come indoors, talk to a healthcare worker, and we can help.”

Duchin said there is no timeline for when the safe injection sites will open. He said officials would have liked to have them up and running “yesterday.”
