Rotavirus Vaccine Could Sicken Some Infants

An article in the New England Journal of Medicine has highlighted the risk posed to infants with severe immune deficiency from the rotavirus vaccine.

Rotavirus vaccine, which is administered in three doses between 6 and 32 weeks of age, is a live virus that has been weakened so that it does not present a threat of infection to children with normal immunity.

Radiation Overdoses Putting Patients at Risk

Radiation overdoses occur more often than you might think. According to an investigation by The New York Times, they can also be deadly.

The Times article highlights several patients who suffered greatly because of radiation overdoses. In one case, a 43-year-old man died in 2007, following radiation treatments at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan for tongue cancer. The hospital failed to detect a computer error that directed a linear accelerator to blast his brain stem and neck with errant beams of radiation – on three consecutive days. Prior to his death, the radiation overdoses left the man in severe pain, deaf, struggling to see, nauseated and unable to swallow. He sustained burns, and the radiation caused his teeth to fall out and ulcers his mouth and throat. (more…)

Another Florida Town May Ask for Chinese Drywall Emergency Declaration

The city of Cape Coral, Florida wants a little help from Governor Charlie Crist for Chinese drywall victims. The City Council there is considering asking the Governor to declare a state of emergency over defective Chinese drywall.
