Whooping Cough Cases Triple In Suffolk County
From NBC News
There are already 179 reported cases in the county (may be because whooping
cough is now better diagnosed and because public awareness is higher? Where
have we heard this before? But they make up for that silly comment in the
next sentence. Another reason may be because more people are opting not to
have their children vaccinated )
The number of whooping cough cases have tripled in Suffolk County since last
year, according to the Suffolk County Health Department.
In 2010, there were only 54 reported cases of whooping cough. In 2011, there
were 179 reported whooping cough or pertussis cases.
One reason for the increase, according to Suffolk Health Commissioner Dr.
James L. Tomarken, may be because whooping cough is now better diagnosed and
because public awareness is higher.
Another reason may be because more people are opting not to have their
"It's a cyclical thing, sometimes we see pertussis in waves of three to five
years," said Tomarken. "We hope we have seen the worst but we just don't
Whooping cough usually starts with cold symptoms, accompanied by a
persistent dry cough that could last weeks or even months. The bacterial
infection is spread through droplets in the air.
Of the 179 cases in Suffolk so far this year, almost 40 of the patients were
students in the Smithtown school district. In June 2010, nearly 40 people,
most of them students, contracted whooping cough.
According to Suffolk health officials, all those affected had been immunized
in the past, but immunizations are not 100 percent effective. The students
did develop less severe symptoms because of their prior vaccinations.
"Parents should make sure their children are getting booster shots," said
Dr. Tomarken. "And adults who are in contact with any child under one,
should also do the same."
(Dr Bate's comments:) Isn't it interesting that many of the affected were
vaccinated, but still caught it? That seems to be happening more and more,
PLUS the proven facts that children NOT vaccinated are healthier as a group
than those who were. The web makes lies by Big Pharma and the AMA show up
as such. When will the general public learn about the dangers of
vaccinations? Autism and depression are only two of the many health
problems caused by mineral toxicity. Taking large amounts (natural) of
ascorbic acid vitamin C takes out all minerals cheaply.
Hitting it big - two editorials this week.
*A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and
explaining stress management to an audience; with a raised glass of water,
and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or
half full?'..... she fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?",
she inquired with a smile.** *
*Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.*
*She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I
hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for
an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll
have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer
I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our
burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly
heavy, we won't be able to carry on."*
*"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest
before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the
burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.
So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't
carry them through the evening and into the night.... pick them up tomorrow.
*Whatever burdens you're carrying now, put them down for a moment. Relax,
pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now
'supposed' stress that you've conquered!"*
