Take care, there’e a new JAB coming up – this time it’s for:
-So, here’s the Wiki of it with additions and annotations from me covering it as a childhood sickness, but also typhoid and other states of alimentary imbalance.
It is estimated that three to five billion cases of gastroenteritis occur globally on an annual basis primarily affecting children and those in the developing world. It resulted in about 1.3 million deaths in children less than five as of 2008, with most of these occurring in the world’s poorest nations.
More than 450,000 of these fatalities are due to rotavirus in children under 5 years of age*.
Cholera causes about three to five million cases of disease and kills approximately 100,000 people yearly.
In the developing world children less than two years of age frequently get six or more infections a year that result in clinically significant gastroenteritis **. It is less common in adults, partly due to the development of acquired immunity.
In 1980, gastroenteritis from all causes caused 4.6 million deaths in children, with the majority occurring in the developing world. Death rates were reduced significantly (to approximately 1.5 million deaths annually) by the year 2000, largely due to the introduction and widespread use of oral rehydration therapy.
In the US, infections causing gastroenteritis are the second most common infection (after the common cold), and they result in between 200 and 375 million cases of acute diarrhea and approximately ten thousand deaths annually, with 150 to 300 of these deaths in children less than five years of age.
The first usage of “gastroenteritis” was in 1825. Before this time it was more specifically known as typhoid fever or “cholera morbus”, among others, or less specifically as “griping of the guts”, “surfeit”, “flux”, “colic”, “bowel complaint”, or any one of a number of other archaic names for acute diarrhea.
Society and culture Gastroenteritis is associated with many colloquial names, including “Montezuma’s revenge”, “Delhi belly”, “la turista”, and “back door sprint”, among others. It has played a role in many military campaigns and is believed to be the origin of the term “no guts no glory”.
Gastroenteritis is the main reason for 3.7 million visits to physicians a year in the United States and 3 million visits in France***.
In the United States gastroenteritis as a whole is believed to result in costs of 23 billion USD per year with that due to rotavirus alone resulting in estimated costs of 1 billion USD a year.
There are a number of vaccines against gastroenteritis in development. For example, vaccines against Shigella and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC), two of the leading bacterial causes of gastroenteritis worldwide ****.
Notes for users – for matters untranslated in the text from Orthodox misdirection prose
* More that “rotavirus particles were found” and not that they caused the sickness, I’m confident.
** Such kids are almost inevitably malnourished and living in situations with poor sanitation so it is of no wonder they are so often sick.
***Sacre bleu, qu’es que c’est?
**** No – found when the body allows them to proliferate as it is weakened/starved/incorrectly nourished/has wheat allergy or overload/otherwise physiologically stressed eg by obesity and diabetes. Anyhow the new childhood rotavirus drops – on the tongue at three months – is the “vaccine” they now want to start for all UK kids.
Footnote and Moral, etc:
There is here also an area of connection with other vaccine outcomes. The Wakefield and associated MMR studies noted adhesion or otherwise residual measles viral genetic material in the intestinal tissue of autistic patients. There are clearly intestinal, again, outcomes from the process of vaccination. It seems this is an area of research which must be taken up urgently again and with heavy financial backing to probe deeply into a complex array of vital issues.
Footnote on morals and their decline: Prof Paul Offit, US vaccine proponent in chief, has made millions of dollars from the sale of his patent for the rotavirus vaccine to Merck. So not exactly a detached, objective opinion then, Paul. How dare he make a dime from it? How dare he!?
