    OTC Meds Given To Prevent Fever After Vaccines May Be Culprit

    Although Cuba’s per capita income is about eight times lower than that of the U.S., the percentage of its population with autism is also lower — a surprising 298 times lower. Dr. William Shaw, who has supervised departments in endocrinology, nutritional biochemistry, toxicology, and immunology at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other organizations, hypothesizes that the increased rate of autism, as well as rising rates of asthma and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, may be caused by an increased use of acetaminophen. Acetaminophen, a pain reliever and fever reducer, is the active ingredient in Tylenol as well as other medications.

    Among the controversial topics he covers in his latest work of research is the potential connection between autism and vaccines — or more correctly, the connection between autism and the fever prevention therapies recommended before and after vaccinations.

    Vaccines or OTC Drugs to Reduce Fever?

    Although vaccines are technically optional in the U.S. — mandatory for children enrolling in school — vaccines are compulsory throughout Cuba. In fact, Cuba boasts one of the most highly vaccinated populations in the world with a rate of inoculation against measles at 99.7 percent. This certainly tops the estimated worldwide rate of 84 percent among 1 year olds in 2011 reported by the World Health Organization, which also found the rate of measles vaccination to be 90 percent in the United States.

    Declining to enter the debate on whether vaccines contribute to autism, Shaw wrote “a topic much less frequently addressed in association with autism is the therapies that are given in conjunction with vaccines.” A widespread practice among American pediatricians is to prescribe acetaminophen, which is a Food and Drug Administration-approved over-the-counter (OTC) medication, as a prophylactic fever preventative. Yet, it is quite uncommon in Cuba, where it has never been approved for OTC purposes. In Cuba, when a high fever persists for more than two days after a baby is vaccinated, parents are advised to bring their child to a physician who can then prescribe metamizole. Although used in many countries, this drug is banned in the U.S. because of an association with agranulocytosis, a condition where the bone marrow does not make enough white blood cells.

  4. Urgent action needed TODAY! Access to compounded medication​s at risk

    medical-herbs-216Over the weekend the House passed the bill S. 949 that will severely limit your ability to access “in-office” compounds and other compounds like bio-identical hormones. The Senate is predicted to pass the bill in the immediate future.

    Saturday the House passed and the Senate is poised to pass legislation that will severely limit your treatment options.

    • Although this bill is well intended, it will not further the safety of compounded medications
    • You may no longer have access to IVs and vitamin injections
    • The cost of medications may dramatically increase

    Please take 2 minutes to contact your Senator with the links below.
