Re: Ear infections chiropractor I mean it’s really a tough call, on the one hand chiropractic neck manipulations can cause strokes ( but on the other hand someone made a claim that’s “too good to be true” that makes no physiologic sense. It’s really a toss-up when you get right down to it.

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread They have numerous and ever-changing rationale. This just debunks a few of the common ones.

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
I don't want to go into the whole discussion of vaccines but if I can change the mind of one person/family then it's worth it:
My young brother wasn't vaccinated for the measles and he got it when he was a young baby. He was then completely healthy until the age of 9 when we realized something was wrong. After many tests, scans & MRI, the doctor found that it was a rare complication of the measles that comes out only years later and no one till that day recovered from it. The body just stop functioning in many stages and people were able to stay alive for a maximum of 8 years with an average of 4 years. This happens 1 in 10M measles cases.
I don't remember all the details, the name of this complication, and why my brother wasn't vaccinated for the measles (although we were all vaccinated in my family), and I don't want to ask my parents any questions about it.
Someone called me a few months ago after there was a big controversy in CH about vaccines and ask me; "is it true your brother had complications because he got vaccinated?" I was shocked from this question but I still had to verify to be 100% sure. My only question to my mother was if my brother was vaccinated or not and she confirmed he wasn't.
My brother past away 3 years later at the age of 12. It was 3 painful years with a hospital bed at home with many machines and a surgery or visit at the hospital every few months.
If he just had the damn vaccine...
What a devastating story, I am so sorry for your loss - and thank you for being willing to share it. Most likely he developed subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) a rare but known complication of measles that occurs years after the infection clears.

Re: Covid-19 Symptoms In Toddlers - Rashes / Hives Rash has absolutely been seen as a sign of COVID in otherwise asymptomatic patients. I would have that high on your differential. The office would likely appreciate a heads up of what you suspect before you march them in :p
Any other symptoms?

Re: Covid-19 Symptoms In Toddlers - Rashes / Hives It would be the first series of reported adverse sequelae in kids. Definitely noteworthy especially in the context of discussing school/camp reopening.

Re: Who do you trust most on covid-19?
Does anyone still trust Fauci after Plandemic?

So to be clear, one bitter ex-employee with minimal credibility makes claims about a well respected physician with no evidence whatsoever and you walk away believing the conspiracy? The odds that you did not believe this was a conspiracy even prior to the video must be exceedingly close to zero.

Re: Cambodia vs Vietnam vs Thailand
For a first trip, I'd recommend Thailand.

But it’s likely a first and last trip to the region and I don’t particularly care for the food and beaches. Still Thailand? I’m leaning Vietnam.

Re: What is FL hiding?
Any observations from the frontlines?

We are about triple our total inpatients compared to the “peak of the 1st wave”. Converting most of the ERs and ICUs to COVID ICUs. Cutting back on most non-emergent surgeries requiring hospitalizations. Most hospitals in South Florida have cancelled elective cases altogether but my hospital system has not yet. They are starting to pull residents from other services to help the hospitalist teams who are at or near capacity. Having said all this - we are running about even on total COVID cases for the past 3-4 days. This can be an aberration but hopefully is evidence of turning the corner. We are still getting new COVID patients but this current batch of patients are more quickly able to be discharged -likely due to the greater percentage of young/healthy patients as compared to the more elderly sicker patients during the first wave.

Re: What is FL hiding? If we’re lucky - we got right to the brink of disaster (in terms of hospitals being overrun and increased mortality due to sheer overwhelmed systems) and the cases decrease naturally with time and burning itself out. If we’re unlucky - we are in for a very scary next few months. I hope and think the former will be the case, it is entirely feasible that the latter will occur. The prudent thing to do at this point is shut things down (here in the high prevalence zones) until things are somewhat under better control. Not forever, but for some reasonable amount of time until hospitals and cases decrease to a scientifically safer level.

Re: What is FL hiding?

400k positives, over 32k deaths. What could have been worse?? The numbers NY has is larger then most of the world. I'm not sure how things could've been worse.

Look up Italy - 243k cases w/ 35k mortalities. That’s what happens when the healthcare system is truly overwhelmed.

Also 400k total cases is less than 5% of total population (granted the actual positive rate must have been somewhat higher as many probably did not get tested). If they hadn’t shut down to the extent they did, it certainly could have been disastrously worse.
