Annals of Internal Medicine Claims Black is White

Annals of Internal Medicine Claims Black is White

The Annals of Internal Medicine today published an editorial titled "Enough Is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements". The editorial tells us that three separate research projects studied the effects of 'supplements' on different chronic illness, and found no significant disease benefit from 'supplements'.  

Employee Vaccine Mandates: Observations of a Vaccine Rights Attorney

Employee Vaccine Mandates: Observations of a Vaccine Rights Attorney

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' "Healthy People 2020" initiative states a goal of vaccinating 90% of the nation's healthcare workers with the influenza vaccine annually by 2020,[1] a goal well underway to being achieved. A separate DHHS goal aims to vaccinate 80% of all U.S. employees annually with the influenza vaccine by 2020.[2]

There's no light at the end of this tunnel. With literally hundreds of new vaccines in the works,[3] there will always be another person to get a vaccine, and another vaccine to give a person. Taxpayers, through state and federal governments, pay:

Health Care Worker Alert: ABC News Misquoted Vaccine Rights Attorney

Health Care Worker Alert: ABC News Misquoted Vaccine Rights Attorney

 

Eight nurses who were fired by their hospital-employer for refusing flu vaccines got national attention earlier this year when ABC News reported on the event. This brought much needed national attention to a trend rapidly sweeping the nation, that of hospitals requiring their employees to get flu shots or lose their jobs. A large percentage of healthcare workers object to the new policy, but most are getting the shot because they can't afford to lose their jobs and are not aware of laws that could help them avoid the shot, or because they are afraid they'll be fired just for asking for an exemption. We applaud ABC News for bringing national attention to this matter.

However, the article's author misquoted me (a leading vaccine rights attorney) in a way that could put healthcare workers unnecessarily at risk if they rely on this article. Specifically, the article quoted me as saying: "Religion is legally broad under the First Amendment, so it could include any strongly held belief . . . the belief [that] flu shots are bad should suffice." This is not true, and not what I said. First Amendment protections do NOT extend to "any strongly held belief," they extend only to beliefs that are "religious in nature" as the law defines that phrase, and that are also sincerely held. As for the legal meaning of "religious in nature," it takes a consultation to explain and explore that matter with clients individually so that they can put together a legally sound statement of religious beliefs opposed to immunizations that works for them and their particular situation. Rights vary according to the specific situation and circumstances, and to the laws of the relevant jurisdiction(s).

Plants: The Past, Present, and Future of Medicine

Did you know that natural medicine was once, and still is, the default medical system on this planet?

In fact, the use of chemically-based patent medicines (pharmaceuticals) is a relatively recent development (circa 1870), and should really be called “alternative medicine” vis-a-vis time-tested, far safer approaches that rely on food, spices, and carefully prepared and administered plant extracts.

The #1 Reason Never To Buy Bottled Water Again

Huge companies like Pepsi, Nestlé, and Coca-Cola sell billions of units of Reverse Osmosis purified tap water each year, the inevitable consequence of which is the littering of our planet with plastic that will pollute the environment for hundreds of years. What if you could eliminate the "middle men," thousands of dollars in costs, and tons of plastic in the process?

Will Flu Vaccines Be Required For All U.S. Health Employees by 2020?

Will Flu Vaccines Be Required For All U.S. Employees by 2020?

This past fall, I worked with about 150 healthcare workers in 26 states who were required to get a flu shot to keep their job. I'm happy to report that the vast majority successfully avoided the flu shot. But I gained some disturbing insights from this national perspective regarding flu shots that have implications for all adults in the U.S.:
