Continuing posts about #vaccination as needless outbreaks of #preventabledisease
Continuing posts about #vaccination as needless outbreaks of #preventablediseases continue. Documenting women and children receiving life-saving vaccines in the DRC’s remote, inaccessible areas offers a potent insight into the chain of events that make the delivery of vaccines possible. Chronicling vaccine trails across Africa, I witnessed the challenges of offering children in DRC the same protection from childhood disease that I took for granted when I was growing up in the US. Setting out with a team from the Ministry of Health, I travelled to Matadi, about 300km from Kinshasa. The ever declining quality of the roads as we drove further from the capital meant the journey took eight hours. Bouncing over dusty, rough tracks, we stopped along the way at rural health centers, where solar-powered refrigerators are used to safeguard vaccines, which must be stored at a constant temperature. In these remote areas, one fridge stores enough vaccines to serve thousands of people. The next morning I met Jina Kiaku Mianfipa, a vaccinator in Kizulu Sanzi. Mr. Mianfipa would travel 50 kilometers on foot bicycle to deliver a cooler packed with vaccines to the village of Kinze Muété. I took pictures as I followed him over rutted dirt trails, at times too bumpy and steep to ride his bicycle, but he pressed on, pushing his bike and cooler past villagers laden with baskets and babies. He waved at children and neighbours, who smiled and laughed as I tried to keep up, running alongside Mr. Mianfipa trying to capture the spirt of his work with my camera – the remote landscape, the difficulty of his journey, and the people his exertions would help. We arrived at a makeshift “vaccination clinic” hours after setting out. A rickety wooden bench and a table were set-up outside a single room in the crumbling village school. Mr. Mianfipa took the cooler from his bike and placed it on the table. The women of the village emerged from their homes, carrying their babies in their arms and on their backs. They lined up with their health cards, ready to receive their vaccinations. It was this moment that made Mr Mianfipa’s efforts worthwhile. #vaccineswork#vaccinateyourkids#sciencesaveslives

Of all vegetables produced in Bangladesh, brinjal (eggplant) tops the list in terms of pesticide use. Fruit and Shoot Borer (FSB) ravages brinjal fields and can cause loss of the crop by as much as 70 percent unless a heavy dose of pesticide is used. Before, FSB pest used to damage up to one-third of brinjal crops. Now, virtually none of the Bt brinjal is damaged by the FSB pest. With increasing number of brinjal growers in the country now switching towards Bt brinjal, the pesticide poisoning reduced to a third. Overall, Bt brinjal farmers enjoyed (during study period) a 55 percent hike in revenues, increasing net profit by over Tk. 30,000 per hectare. https://www.dhakatribune.com/business/2019/03/07/5-yr-after-releasing-its-first-gm-crop-bangladesh-says-farmers-gain-by-adopting-bt-brinjal #factsnotfear#standupforscience#eggplant#bangladesh#GMO#sciencememes#gmos#gmosaresafe#gmossavelives#nongmoproject#nongmo#organicfarming#conventionalfood#farming#agriculture#biotechnology#instascience#instahealth#science#scicomm#foodscience#geneticmodification#geneticengineering#health#pesticides#pesticidefree#bioengineering#humanity#humanitarian#sciencesaveslives

Dr Andrew Birnie, is the co-founder of Altruist Sunscreen and a Consultant Dermatologist and Dermatological Surgeon, based in Canterbury, Kent who specialises in skin cancer and Mohs micrographic surgery. For British Science Week we asked Dr Birnie, 'What are the latest developments in the field of sunscreen?' . . "Still the most important thing is to ensure that there is protection cross the UVA and UVB radiation spectrum. Thus a high level of UVA protection, in proportion with the SPF (UVB protection) is important. The newest filter registered in the EU is Tinosorb A2B, which is in Altruist Sunscreen, this helps to ensure a more complete protection across the UV spectrum as there used to be a gap between the UVA and B peaks of absorption in sunscreens. . . Nano technology is also a great innovation. Although it sounds small, in UV filters terms this actually means big! This means that they can sit on the surface of the skin and less sunscreen is actually absorbed into the skin." . Altruist's mission is to reduce the incidence of skin cancer by enabling more people to use more sunscreen. Together with the help of the best scientists in Europe and BASF they created an exceptionally high quality sunscreen at the lowest possible price. Happy #BritishScienceWeek from everyone at Altruist 🔬⚗⚛ . . #scienceweek#science#consultantdermatologist#doctor#surgeon#dermatologist#dermatology#skincancer#skincancerawareness#melanoma#mohs#nanotechonology#skincarecommunity#cancer#scientists#uvfilters#uva#uvb#uvprotection#suncream#sunscreen#spf#scienceweek2019#bsw2019#skinscience#skincarescience#sciencesaveslives#skinhealth#beautyscience

Genetically engineered #salmon was just approved in the US 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 . “#AquAdvantage Salmon has been genetically engineered to reach a growth marker important to the aquaculture industry more rapidly than its non-GE farm-raised Atlantic salmon counterpart. It does so because it contains an rDNA construct that is composed of the growth hormone gene from Chinook salmon under the control of a promoter (a sequence of DNA that turns on the expression of a gene) from another type of fish called an ocean pout. This allows the salmon to reach a growth marker important to the aquaculture industry faster than non-GE farm-raised Atlantic salmon.” . .

In light of the vaccination controversy and growing number of outbreaks of #preventablediseases, I wanted to share images to honor the challenges that health workers face to bring vaccines to their communities and the families that no longer have to fear the death of a child from a preventable disease. Getting vaccines where they need to go and intact is no simple feat in the developing world where there may be no electricity, roads, or health facilities. Other obstacles like archaic data collecting methods using pen and paper, a lack of well-trained staff to manage the supply chain, poor transport, and no cold chain, also make vaccine delivery enormously challenging. Vaccines lost during the journey to patients, translates into lost lives. #vaccineswork#sciencesaveslives#vaccinateyourkids@gavialliance#vaccines

The Daily Herald, March 6th, 2019 An Ohio resident and high school senior named Ethan Lindenberger stood in front of the United States' Congress on Tuesday, March 5th, and told it his own experiences with vaccination. He pushed Congress to listen to science and pursue hasher vaccination laws. Ethan was not vaccinated for the first 18 years of his life. His mother believed he and her other children would be harmed by the vaccinations. Ethan got himself vaccinated once he turned 18 yrs old in late 2018. So far this year (2019), there have been more than 200 cases of measles in the US. The majority of cases are in the PNW. No one has died yet but it can be caused by measles. #vaccinateyourkids#vaccinate#vaccinating#vaccination#vaccinations#vaccinationssavelives#sciencesaveslives#raisingkids#raisingachild#children#motherhood#fatherhood NEW TAG, created right after this post went up: #vaccinateherald

Meant to post about this #viral topic yesterday, but air travel got in my way. And let’s talk about travel, actually, as it relates to vaccines. ✈️💉 In 2018, 82 unvaccinated people brought measles to the United States after traveling to countries with low vaccination rates. Those contributed to 17 outbreaks of the disease last year. ✈️💉 In 2019, we have already had 6 reported outbreaks, again related to unvaccinated travelers bringing the disease from outside the US. ✈️💉 In 2002, endemic measles was declared eliminated in North, Central & South America. But now, in just 2 months, we’ve had 209 cases reported, with the highest in 2014 being 667 cases. In 1/6 of a year, we are almost 1/3 of the way to this being the year post-elimination with the highest case numbers. ✈️💉 Pseudoscience linking vaccines to autism has largely contributed to these numbers. But SCIENCE has disproven this assertion and MARH, STATISTICS & EPIDEMIOLOGY have proven the need for vaccines. ✈️💉 I’m proud to be working with policy advocates to help minors access LIFE SAVING vaccines without parental consent. Because I want these children to live to see the world, to travel the world, and someday, to save the world. ✈️💉 *All data from the CDC. #dontgoviral#vaccines#vaccinateyourkids#vaccineswork#vaccinessavelives#vaccinate#sciencematters#sciencesaveslives#publichealth#healthpolicy#epidemiology@cdcgov@who#verifyhealthcare#womenempowerment#knowledgeispower#educateyourself#medicine#medical#medicalstudent

Americans leave the largest carbon footprint per capita in the world. Climate scientists are doing a bad job deterring their fossil fuel consumption habits. Americans used the American Standard System and the average Joe or Jane does not have the faintest idea about the metric system (Used in science & worldwide). A 1 to 2 Degree Celsius world climate temperature change seems meaningless and innocuous to most people without context. (If converted to Fahrenheit there is still not much of a discernible difference too) To most Americans, a little warmer weather is good and not a bad thing, but the scientists are not talking about the weather nor is 1-2 degree C world temperature change is considered a minor development. Both the American public and science community need to communicate on the same page if we are going to make a dramatic change in reducing our carbon footprint. So world scientists must rethink their technical jargon to assimilate the largest fossil fuel consumers in the world. My suggestion is they move toward a universal reporting system like Standard and Poors Rating. Grades are based on the financial strength of the institution from A to F, where the highest rated instruments are given the grade AAA+ and so on. When we discuss a 1-Degree world temperature change there is a general consensus context to its meaning and accompanying grade value definition attached. A - would mean in good housekeeping for a 1-degree C. F- would be unacceptable in a 3-4 degree C world. Breaking down the communication barriers is an important step in resolving our differences and bringing about a positive & meaningful outcome. So demand answers, accountability and action from your world leaders and politicians before it is too late. We are in a Climate Change Emergency. We need all hands on deck to turn this ship around. Mobilize, rebel, take action and do whatever it takes to be heard. Please share and get informed. Thanks for listening.

Let's talk about #measles 😷The measles virus is one of the most contagious in the world, capable of staying in the air for up to two hours after a sick person leaves. One infected individual can infect 18-19 people. The recent outbreaks have sickened dozens in Washington state, but globally have sickened thousands, and killed hundreds. The disease can also leave dangerous long-term effects even after recovery, such as brain damage and a weakened immune system. This is why it is so important to #vaccinate to protect #herdimmunity for the immuno-compromised.

The enemy this time folks is invisible, elusive & ubiquitous. CO2 accumulation in the strastophere & its aggregate effect is stealth & deadly to all planet life. We exhale CO2 daily & it brings modern comfort to our lives. So how do we combat this silent enemy? We as a society should move en mass. On the horizon there is a novel scientific approach, we all can try by cultivating hemp plants in enrich silica soil. If everyone in the world grew a small plantation in their home garden, we would create a sizable sink outlet to sequester CO2 emission about the size of Australia. (1.2 sq ft. per person x world pop. 7.7B) Hemp pulls CO2 out of the air 4 times greater than trees, & grows in a very short time period. Silica dust entraps the CO2 for decades & remineralizes the grounds nutrients. This is just one novel suggestion, if mankind put every blood, sweat & tears into fighting this war we can win the battle. We now know the enemy but will the revolution even begin?

Mankind is speeding to the abyss. It's insanity and stupidity at its best. First designed for war, the S.U.V., known as sub-terrain utility vehicles are a man-made ecological disaster for the planet. They are being churned out in record numbers by our factories. Now converted for civilian use, little John Jr. is driven to and from school in these gross polluting mini tanks. Once made to destroy the enemy, it ravages our environmental landscape a million times a day. Unless governments around the globe declare a 'state of climate emergency', the battle to fight climate change is a losing battle. The Fossil Conglomerates have won, defeating mother earth & human existence. A privileged society, that is not economically deprived, starves a needed revolution. It's time to put on the parachute and open the escape hatch. We are in for a hard landing.

Studying for a test today!

Did you know the reason carbon monoxide is so deadly
Studying for a test today! Did you know the reason carbon monoxide is so deadly is because it binds to the hemoglobin in your blood, preventing oxygen from binding to red blood cells? Because 98.5% of your oxygen is transported by red blood cells as bound to hemoglobin, blocking those receptors means that no matter how much you breathe, cells that have joined with carbon monoxide will not be able to carry that oxygen to your body. Thus, you suffocate, even as you breathe in air with plenty of oxygen. #carbonmonoxide#carbonmonoxidepoisoning#scienceiscool#scienceisreal#sciencesaveslives#ilovescience

There is a saying in the financial trading markets, 'the bears and bulls get some but the pigs get nothing." Gordon Gekko is a fictitious character in the movie "Wall Street". He epitomized the worst of man, that greed is inherently evil. People, I implore you to put down your smartphones and look outside for a moment. Stop wanting things and look at the beautiful climate we enjoy and take for granted. This planet is so blessed with an abundance of life. We are given a special moment in time to have this experience. All it takes is a few degrees change in Celsius and our worldly paradise will turn into a hot hell. It will spell our doom. Now, I know better, man will never change his ways. It seems greed is indeed hardwired, and may oversee his intelligence to able to correct and adjust. Mankind is infected with this disease worldwide. But all it takes is a little change in our behavior. Instead of greed for money - rechannel it to be greedy for love and life. This little change in our hearts will make the difference between life and hell. Greed may not be good but if nourished the right way, it can be harnessed as a force for change. So folks, all we need is a few less degrees & we get to keep something very special.

BIONIC LENSES :. GOODBUY GLASSES Hello Vision That’s 3x Better Than 20/20. Researchers are warning of the danger that contact lenses that are not disposed of in the correct manner may be causing to waterway systems and the environment.. Researchers in the US have been investigating the final journeys taken by disposable contact lenses. They found 15-20% of US users simply flick these fiddly lenses down the drain via the bathroom sink or toilet. The Arizona State University study suggests that much of the plastic material then ends up in waste water treatment plants. The lenses are consequently spread on farmland as sewage sludge, increasing plastic pollution in the environment. Around 45m people wear contacts in the US, while rates in other countries vary, with between 5 and 15% of the population in Europe using them. Over the last decade, the use of softer plastic contact lenses has grown rapidly with people using daily, weekly or monthly disposables in greater numbers than ever before.. Ocumetics have developed a bionic contact that could advance human sight forward by a whopping 3x of having 20/20 vision. Instead of reading text from 10 feet away, imagine reading the same text from 30 feet away. . .Cataracts may be completely eradicated thanks to this new development.. . Dr. Garth Webb, an optometrist and the man who invented the Bionic Lens says that the procedure is very similar to cataract surgery and would take only eight minutes.He also adds that people who get specialized lenses inserted into their eyes would never suffer from cataracts and that the lenses feel natural and won't cause headaches or eyestrain.

Rome burns while the emperor fiddles. This quote is so apt for our current global warming predicament. Our planet atmosphere is in flame, while we are consumed with chasing the glittering gold. People around this world must wake up. Possession of money and luxury was once fine and trendy when our planet ecosystem was sound & abundantly supportive for all life form including man. But humans unquenchable thirst, & unrelenting march for progress is harming our immediate survival as a species. We are living beyond Earth's biosphere capacity. Mother nature will make the necessary correction for us, if we don't reign in our darkest impulses. The amount of wealth & money we have ever created will be vaporized instantly on a dead and inhospitable planet. Now we must choose wisely, reverse course or pay dearly. Please get informed, and help save our beautiful planet.

In the United States in 1901 an average American’s one hour wage could buy around three quarts of milk; a century later (2001) an average one hour wage could buy sixteen quarts. The amount of every other foodstuff that can be bought with an hour of labor has multiplied as well: from a pound of butter to five pounds, a dozen eggs to twelve dozen, two pounds of pork chops to five pounds, and nine pounds of flour to forty-nine pounds. Wow. You don’t often hear about this type of good news that has been accomplished by human ingenuity and scientific breakthroughs. #sciencesaveslives#howeasilyweforget

The bottom line message here is, who would you trust your life and family's future with? A life guard on duty, whose job is sworn to protect life or a con-man artist/denier? The choice is simple. We must listen to our climate scientist warnings. Their reports paint an alarming & disturbing picture, that we must pay close attention, & start taking action. Today's information on world climate are literally infested with deadly shark lies, and misinformation by climate deniers, who will sham and mislead you for every dime you have and some. They have no education on the basics nor training to advise the public of the risks. Scientists on the other hand, are dedicated professionals who have devoted their careers and lives to serve the public at large in a scientific capacity. They have dedicated themselves to learn the hard basic sciences of chemistry, physics and biology to understand the complexity of how Earth Science works. We must stop listening to the charlatans and heed the Earth Climate Scientists, that are placed on duty here to protect us all. Our future well being, and planet are at stake.

On April 12, 1955, a team of scientists announced that Jonas Salk’s vaccine against polio - the disease that had killed tens of thousands per year, paralyzed Franklin Roosevelt, and sent many children into iron lungs - was proven safe. According to Richard Carter’s history of the discovery, on that day “people observed moments of silence, rang bells, honked horns, blew factory whistles, fired salutes ... took the rest of the day off, drank toasts, hugged children, attended church, and forgave enemies. The city of New York offered to honor Salk with a ticket-tape parade, which he politely declined. #sciencesaveslives#howeasilyweforget

Guess who's gonna be a big sister! Scroll to see how I announced it to Scott. We had to be creative and do our own photo shoot cause of being snowed in. :-) We are all excited but freaking out a little too Haha. At least I am. C-sections aren't fun and no I'm not gonna risk another emergency and try the natural birth after c-section so don't even start trying to pressure me on that one. I am however, going to use essential oils this time instead of tons of medications so I'll let you know how it goes! Wish me luck. :-) Crazy timing cause of the new jobs but yay we will probably get our virgo like we wanted! Thank you @brilee87 for the belly molding last pregnancy. We put it to good use and Evelyn had so much fun painting it with me! Happy early Valentines Day! This family is full of love and joy right now! ❤❤❤ #preggo#baby#baby2#bigsis#excited#freakingout#bellymold#paint#art#announcement#photoshoot#home#fam#samsungnote9#funny#maternity#shirt#puppyfever#kittyfever#nomorebabyfever#book#peanutbutter#pickles#areweready#sciencesaveslives#thetrenches#oilypregnancy#valentines#happy#fam
