Scientists Resume Efforts To Create Deadly Flu Virus, With US Government's Blessing
What the fuck? I would have thought this was some crackpot conspiracy theory if it wasn't Forbes posting this.

What exactly is the reasoning for this research?

motivation-for-me-david-vs-goliath-fighting-big-money-lobbyists = For the longest time, people have fought this asshole Monstanto and they kept saying, "There's no evidence, blah blah blah..." while people are dying and they collect billions.

Now they should be forced to pay multiple times their ill gotten gains.

Ebola outbreak: Why has 'Big Pharma' failed deadly virus' victims? - Health News - Health & Families - The Independent
Failure of the free market: ""The problem with that is, even if you've got a way of making a vaccine, unless there's a big market, it's not worth the while of a mega-company …. There was no business case to make an Ebola vaccine for the people who needed it most: first because of the nature of the outbreak; second, the number of people likely to be affected was, until now, thought to be very small; and third, the fact that the people affected are in some of the poorest countries in the world and can't afford to pay for a new vaccine. It's a market failure.""

Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease | True Activist
Between this article and the "gut bacteria" article bookmarked on 5/1/2013, I've learned that more focus on minerals and bacteria is important. .............. Make sure you get to the last section "Stick To The Good Salts" --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- "Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems." --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- Wow! Particularly interesting: "At Wieliczka in Poland, a hospital has been carved in a salt mountain. Asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies find that breathing air in the saline underground chambers helps improve symptoms in 90 per cent of cases."

BBC - Future - Health - Worm therapy: Why parasites may be good for you
Early trials suggest a host of allergies and autoimmune ailments could be treated by ingesting worm-like parasites. "Hygiene does wonderful things, he realised, but there’s always a price for change. The price might be the surge in cases of asthma and allergies we’ve seen in western countries over the past 40 years."

The Best Way to Fight Flu: Inoculate Children: Scientific American
immunizing 20 percent of children in a community is more effective at protecting those older than 65 than immunizing 90 percent of the elderly. Another study suggests that immunizing 70 percent of schoolchildren may protect an entire community (including the elderly) from flu. Schools are virus exchange systems, and children are “super-spreaders”—they “shed” more of the virus for longer periods than adults.

How African Cattle Herders Wiped Out An Ancient Plague : The Salt : NPR
world-records = Only twice in human history have we managed to eradicate a disease from the planet.

social, groups, communities = "They proved better at the job than veterinarians, in part because they knew their animals.

This success, in fact, created another problem for the eradication effort, because it threatened the status of professional veterinarians. "It threatened the core of their livelihood," says Mariner. "Here you come and say, 'Somebody else can do this better than you.'"

Veterinarians had the power to shut the whole program down. So a key to the campaign was solving that political problem by giving both professionals and local farmers important roles that rewarded them for success."

Evolutionary leap over 500 million years ago gives new insights into human diseases | College of Life Sciences
"Vertebrates emerged around 500 million years ago from a massive evolutionary upheaval that involved two successive doublings in the amount of DNA in a marine invertebrate. These dramatic events triggered the evolution of a new animal, which became the ancestor of the backboned fishes, birds, reptiles and mammals, including humans.

Researchers have been able to compare the human genome to the recently decoded genetic sequence of the invertebrate amphioxus, a tiny creature still found in our seas and which can be regarded as a `distant cousin’ to our species."

The rotten truth: Why 'fruit sugar' is one of the most damaging ingredients in our food | Mail Online
In short, eat fruit the way it was intended to be eaten: whole. Even fresh squeezed juice lacks the fiber that slows the entry of the fructose into the blood stream. "although [HFCS] contains around the same number of calories as cane sugar, the body does not metabolise fructose syrup in the same way. It places a far greater load on the liver, which, in turn, prompts a range of problems, including raised levels of fat in the bloodstream."
