The Shocking Truth About Defibrillators – IEEE Spectrum

A recent article on a AED scavenger hunt got me interested in the topic, since I am interested in heart health. Having a working app seems like a great idea, similar to the Plugin App for finding electric car charging stations.

Yet despite the enormous investment in these AEDs, the death rate from sudden cardiac arrest is no better than it was 20 years ago. It still kills more Americans than lung, breast, and prostate cancers and AIDS combined. Worldwide, it kills about 7 million people a year.

In November 2007, Anna Malofiy awoke in her Southampton, Pa., home to find her husband, Eugene, shaking and unresponsive. She called 911 and attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A few minutes later, a police officer arrived with an automated external defibrillator (AED), the Powerheart model, made by Cardiac Science Corp. By administering an electric shock, such devices can save your life if your heart stops beating.

Get the fluoride out

The Infectious Myth – Fluoridation Again, with Paul Connett and Bob Dickson

2019-09-03 by Progressive Radio Network

Web player:

After our last discussion of water fluoridation in 222, it was expected that the University of Calgary would deliver a pro-fluoridation report, which would be used by a city council committee to recommend fluoridation of this major Canadian city (well over one million people). But the report, while pro-fluoride overall, admitted that the data on neurological effects (e.g. lower IQ) was concerning, and city council cancelled the committee meeting, presumably to regroup the pro-fluoride forces. David is joined again by Paul Connett of the Fluoride Action Network and Bob Dickson of Safe Water Calgary, with some written comments from Hardy Limeback, formerly head of preventive dentistry at the University of Toronto. Some of the documents mentioned in this discussion are: (A) CADTH report: (B) Response to the CADTH Report: (C) O’Brien report: (D) Till/Green IQ Study:

Polio with another name is back?

If it’s not a virus, but simple chemical poisoning, then where’s it coming from now?

When I see the name Fauci, we know there’s a problem.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said it may bear similarities to polio, which smouldered among humans for centuries before it exploded into fearsome epidemics in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Fauci, who published a report about the disease Tuesday in the journal mBio, said it is unlikely AFM will become as bad as polio, which struck tens of thousands of U.S. children annually before a vaccine became available in the 1950s.

Does chlorination cause heart attacks? 

Markus thinks so… 

Chlorination solves many bacterial waterborne illnesses, but does it cause the leading cause of death in North America? If it does, is the drug industry suppressing this information to keep sales in the billions?

Atherosclerosis is a fancy medical word for a big problem that plagues most of us – the cause of heart attacks.
