People without risk factors -tobacco, cholesterol, diabetes and hypertension nor a family history of cardiovascular disease are still victims of stroke and heart attack. Cardiologists sometimes struggle to explain why people without risk factors die of stroke or heart attack. Several international teams who were conducting research on schizophrenia for some, for leukemia for others, have observed in some patients a significant accumulation of abnormal stem cells in the bone marrow where they gradually take the place of healthy cells. The vast majority of these patients never had hematologic cancer, but had, even in the absence of any other risk factor, a higher than average risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Dr. Siddhartha Jaiswal of Stanford University details that “clonal hematopoiesis (name given to this condition) multiplies by 2.5 the risk of stroke and by 2 the risk of coronary heart disease (infarction). "It is as much as smoking, diabetes or high cholesterol." Mutations are not hereditary; they affect 2.5% of people over 50 and 12.5% of over 70. Professor Jean Ferrières from the Toulouse University Hospital and the French Federation of Cardiology underlines "At this frequency, there are quite rare mutations, but there may be others to explore". Detection of these mutations by a blood DNA test is possible, but experts do not recommend identifying carriers: "At present, there is no treatment to offer these people" explains Dr. Siddhartha Jaiswal . Even if the mechanisms by which these mutations promote cardiovascular risk are still poorly understood, it is obvious that these mutations promote atherosclerosis (formation of plaques in the blood vessels which, by accumulating or becoming detached, cause strokes and infarcts). We must try to limit atherosclerosis (these plaques evolve slowly). There is a therapeutic avenue around chronic inflammation. The prescription of aspirin could be considered preventively. We should not forget the Carbone Magnetizer!

Even if there are genetic susceptibilities, families will be more at risk of having a particular pathology. Most important is the enormous influence of our environment. The lifestyle we adopt, the air we breathe and what we eat activate or inhibit some of our genes. We are a stakeholder in our life, it is about making the symphony that we create with interactions with our environment ring true. The human genome has 23,000 genes, but does the same gene necessarily give the same characteristic in two people? No. The genetic material is identical in identical twins. Confronted with different environments, they do not have the same diseases. Humans, magnetizers, have a real action potential on their genome, the modifications are reversible, the environment activates a gene and a change in external influences deactivates this same gene, and vice versa. It is essential to learn to manage stress, it is necessary to walk, to take pleasure in what you do, to pay attention to what you eat and to remember to ventilate yourself well. Small molecules that influence gene expression are produced by these five points.

HPC (papillomavirus)

These are contagious viruses which are usually eliminated naturally, but which can develop into cancer of the cervix.

The vaccine protects against HPV 16 and 18 which cause 70% of cancers. In case of risk, a smear is performed. This is the only way to screen for lesions caused by all types of viruses. (Carbone magnetizer 02/06/17)

ENVIRONMENT

90% of municipalities still use pesticides but they will have to stop on January 1.

8 out of 10 municipalities are lagging behind. The law on energy transition stipulates that on January 1, 2017, communities will be prohibited from using pesticides. "The deadline will be a little tight", judges the association of mayors of France. The services in charge of parks and cemeteries must indeed change their habits. The national office for water and aquatic environments (Onema) estimates for its part that 6,000 tonnes of active materials are still used each year and that only 4,000 municipalities have taken the plunge. Over 85% of cities are still lagging behind. Home gardeners have until 2019 to switch to organic treatment of their geranium pots.

Agnès Buzin (new president of the HAS college (Haute Autorité de Santé), the institution responsible for evaluating drugs, is tackling the cost of cancer treatments such as Avastin.

The state reacts against laboratories because of the exorbitant price of treatments

The Roche laboratory, in 2006, billed 44,500 euros for treatment with Avastin. In 2011, an anticancer, Yervoy, appeared, its manufacturer claimed 105,000 euros.

Agnès Buzin, specialist in hematology, deplores the mode of development of laboratories which consists in first targeting an orphan disease in order to obtain good reimbursement by health insurance, therefore by us. The laboratories then only have to multiply the indications (for other pathologies) and consequently the number of patients with an unchanged reimbursement rate.

At the beginning of November, the HAS will look for a new reimbursement pricing model, which varies according to the prescription of the product. (Paris, Carbon Magnetizer 10-16)

Thyroid

Each year in France, 10,000 thyroid cancers are diagnosed. But be aware that only 4,000 deserve to be treated right away. 60% of operations are therefore unnecessary, they cause heavy treatment and poorer quality of life.

Therefore, 60% of thyroid cancer operations would not be necessary. The phenomenon is known and it is for the first time quantifiable: in 20 years, 46,000 people would have been the subject of an overdiagnosis of thyroid cancer, that is to say as many useless ablations of this gland which would not have evolved into illness or death.

It's a chance to get used to them so soon

In the diet of young children (small jars, powdered milk, cookies) there are nine pollutants (heavy metals, PCBs, etc.). ANSES (national agency for food, environmental and occupational health safety) concludes, following an unprecedented study, that a significant number (especially for those concerned) of children have an exposure greater than the toxicological reference values.

Toxicological reference values! ? ! (Bordeaux Carbon Magnetizer 09-16)

ANSES has published its report, after five years of research, on the impact of pesticides on farmers.

The observation is the urgent need to reduce the use of pesticides in order to protect the health of a million people, breeders, seasonal workers, heads of farms, grain farmers, who are the first victims.

The ANSES report mentions the evidence of an association between exposure to pesticides and certain pathologies, certain neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, cognitive disorders and certain cancers, hematologic malignancies, prostate cancers, brain tumors, skin cancers, etc.

There is a questioning of the reliability of the existing data in the context of product registration.

The national Ecophyto plan aimed to reduce by half the use of three types of pesticides (plant protection products, biocides and veterinary drugs). Originally scheduled for 2018, the deadline has been extended to 2025. (Lathes, Carbon Magnetizer 08-16)

After the "French paradox", the "American paradox" ?

When it comes to cancer, physical activity reduces the risk. The National Cancer Institute (Bethesda, USA) sifted through data for more than 1.44 million people of both sexes aged 19 to 98, followed in Europe and the United States for an average of twelve years. During this period, 187,000 cancers were declared.

This work confirmed that the risk of developing at least 13 types of cancer was reduced by physical activity (walking, jogging, swimming, cycling), provided it was performed at a moderate to intense pace for at at least 150 minutes per week or 75 minutes if it is really very intense. Under this condition, the risk reduction can go, for example, up to 45% for the liver, from 23 to 29% for the lung, from 8 to 30% for myeloid leukemia. (Source Paris Match 3499)

Why do we sometimes get an electric shock?  

The explanation is due to the electrical balance which reigns between the objects. There are as many protons (positive charges) as electrons (negative charges) in the atoms that make up every person, every object. When people experience friction with air or other matter, electrons on the surface of atoms can be torn off and transferred, protons are safe in the nucleus of atoms.

 

The rubbed body loses electrons and becomes positive, the body that receives the electrons becomes negative. When you touch a body with an electric potential different from yours, it is the electric shock.

Chemical risk assessment tool

Software available free on the Internet. It was developed over three years by the National Research and Safety Institute (INRS) in partnership with the General Directorate of Labor (DGT), public health organizations and professional federations. Namely, the CnamTS and the Robert-Sauvé Research Institute in occupational health and safety. But also the National Council of Automobile Professionals, the National Union of Paintings, Coatings and Varnishes Industries, the Union of Metallurgical Industries and the Union of Chemical Industries. “Our goal is to help companies learn about chemical risks and identify the most dangerous ones,” summarizes Nicolas Bertrand, chemical engineer at INRS.

Small businesses fail to make the connection between the products the business uses on a daily basis and chemical risk. However, some of them contain agents classified as CMR (carcinogens, mutagens or retrotoxic) which can cause cancer by inhalation, ingestion or skin penetration.

The software consists of several steps. First the inventory phase which is facilitated by an image analysis tool. You only need to photograph the label for the software to recognize the hazard statements.

Seirich offers 3 levels of expertise knowing that it is aimed at different audiences. These include business leaders, QHSE managers, doctors, occupational health services as well as chemists, toxicologists and other chemical risk specialists. To find your level, just answer the quiz available on the site. The latter also offers assistance in identifying dangerous products and substances specific to each activity. The employer just has to indicate his activity (automobile, media, hairdressing, etc.) for the software to draw up a list of the dangerous agents concerned. For example, typing 'manufacture of ready-mixed concrete', the employer will know that this activity presents risks linked to the presence of inhalable and alveolar dust.

The available data show that a fast of 48 hours or, better of 72 hours every six months significantly reduces the glucose level and the activity of two key enzymes of cell proliferation: insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and especially protein kinase A (PKA).

The immune system rebuilds, because the fall in glucose forces the body to consume its sugar reserves, to preserve its energy and to recycle damaged or aged immune cells, which are then eliminated. The lowering of PKA stimulates stem cells which produce large amounts of new immune cells. (Source Paris Match from 07 to 12 May 2015 - N ° 3442)

Hospital. Operate more to earn more

According to a recent study published by the Ministry of Health, surgical activity has increased by 9.3% in the public and private non-profit sector compared to private clinics since the reform of the financing of public hospitals (1). Is this a good sign? Activity-based pricing, T2A in the jargon, was introduced in France in 2004 to make financing fair and improve efficiency. It consists of remunerating each treatment according to a fixed rate and has gradually replaced the annual global allocation. Budgets are therefore a function of the number and characteristics of stays. By definition inflationary, T2A could encourage hospitals to prefer lucrative activities. As for the impact on the quality of care, a report by Irdes (2) noted at the end of 2012 that "in most European countries where T2A is implemented (...), monitoring of quality of care appears to be inappropriate and insufficient ". André Grimaldi, diabetologist, head of department at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital, is himself fiercely opposed to it. "It is an infernal machine, he explains. It leads to developing profitable activities to pay others." Perhaps it should be reserved for certain activities. According to Irdes experts, the drifts could be avoided by adjusting the T2A formula in order to reward the costs incurred in quality.

          As soon as France informs the European Commission in advance, it would not be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the European directive to end the exemption from liability "for development risk"

          MEP Michèle Rivasi considers it urgent to remedy this exemption. The Minister of Health Marisol Touraine should integrate an amendment into her health law.

 

ACUPUNCTURE

          A study, published in 2007 in "The Journal of the American Medical Association" was conducted on 1132 patients divided into three groups. In the first, they were treated with traditional acupuncture. In the second, we simulated: the needles were inserted to an insufficient depth at the level of the painful area and not where they are supposed to act. The third was receiving pain medication or anti-inflammatory drugs and physiotherapy. Six months later, the efficacy was 47.60%, 44.20% and 27.40% respectively. The simple fact of having recourse to the insertion of needles would trigger a mechanism modifying the origin, the transmission and the perception of the pain.
