Public-Private Tracking Diseases

Accurate & Complete Record Keeping Can Support Identification Of Specific Factors & Forces That Provoke & Promote Illnesses & Diseases

Evaluating patient history as the triggers & causative factors that they are allows for early identification of diseases.

Asymmetrically Intertwined, Multi-functional Disease Systems Are Impacted By Transient Factors Potentially Promoting Consistent Results

Evaluate the forces and factors that are making us sick: Overly aggressive diagnosing & redetermined diagnosing.

What if some causes of diseases affecting you could be identified and eliminated? You may be able to provide information to aid that goal. The key is identifying and then tracking potential causes.

If factors that provoke diseases can be identified and ameliorated, the incidence of specific diseases might be reduced. If the forces that promote diseases can be identified, the severity of specific diseases might be reduced.

Imagine that the damaging effects of asbestos had been known and understood 80 years ago. How many factory and construction workers could have been spared painful cancer and lung diseases and lived longer, healthy lives?

Imagine that children of decades past had understood potential dangers of smoking. How many children would have never started smoking, how many adults would have quit sooner, and how many people would have been spared cancer and other debilitating lung diseases?

Are there productive relationships between government and medical research?

Epidemic Info

Always contact your medical provider for the latest epidemic information.

  • The following items regarding the influenza pandemic of 1918 that are true.
    —  Current research provides preliminary findings that it was caused by an Asian avian flu.
    —  Estimates vary, but researchers agree that between 50 and 100 million people died.
    —  Most flues kill mainly the very young and elderly. About half of those who died in 1918 & 1919 were in their 20s and 30s.
  • More people died in the 1918 pandemic than during any other pandemic in history.
    —  The black death plague of the 1300s killed a higher proportion of the world’s population, but fewer people.
  • There are three types of influenza viruses. They are A, B, and C. Type B can cause diseases in humans. Type C rarely causes diseases in humans. Type A viruses can cause epidemics and pandemics.
  • An epidemic is a local or national outbreak of a contagious disease. A pandemic is an outbreak of a contagious disease that spreads globally.
  • Currently most vaccines are developed using egg tissue to grow virus and antibodies. This is a slow process, often taking several months. With millions of people traveling by jet plane and ship, viruses can be spread globally within weeks. If the next pandemic is to be stopped, virologists must develop vaccines using genetic engineering since using this method a vaccine may be developed in significantly less time.
  • In 1908, Paul A. Lewis proved that polio is caused by a virus. He developed a vaccine that was 100% effective in protecting monkeys. It took approximately another half-century to develop a vaccine effective in humans.
  • The virus that mutated and was responsible for the 1918 flu pandemic has been reconstructed using genetic engineering in a US laboratory. Preliminary findings demonstrate it was an avian flu virus. The virus mutated and spread quickly between people. Some experts fear that the current avian flu, the H5N1 strain of bird flu in Asia, may also mutate and gain the ability to spread quickly between humans.
  • Regarding the structure of living organisms: In higher organisms, genes, the specifications for the organism, are stretched out along a filament structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid.) However, many viruses are composed of genes stretched along a structure of RNA (ribonucleic acid.) Some of the viruses that use an RNA structure include the influenza, HIV, and the corona virus that causes SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.) RNA-based organisms mutate wildly and at much higher rates than DNA-based organisms. Therefore RNA-based organisms have a better chance of creating a mutant form that will do any given something. Some of those things include spreading rapidly between humans and doing things to human cells that result in dysfunction and death.

Healthcare Reform Discussion

The US health care system has for many decades provided the highest quality & most available medical care in the world to all who need it whether they access it using a doctor’s appointment, hospital clinic, or emergency room.

In actuality, currently everyone in the US can receive medical care anytime it is needed. The US health care system needs some limited reforms. Specific problems that should be corrected include:

Please post about some points that you agree with.
Insurance Reform:  Insurance should be owned by individuals and not connected to their employers.
Tort Reform — that is, Legal Liability Reform:  Those huge, sometimes frivolous multi-million dollar lawsuits, should be controlled.
Families & Individuals In Poverty:  Government should provide a safety net to ensure that these people can get insurance if they want it.
Other reforms:
The Obamacare law is supposed to include insurance coverage for all citizens. All citizens will be subject to the plan’s Article 1233 which states that a 26-member panel of experts will determine who is eligible and who is not eligible to receive costly medications, transplants, and life-extending procedures including surgeries.

Do you support the Obama administration’s law as enacted?
—  Strongly support these changes
—  Support these changes with other reforms
—  Against Obamacare as it is now enacted because it determines who will receive life-saving medications & procedures, and mandates end-of-life conditions.
—  Identify any other reforms you would like to see materialize.

Do you currently have a health insurance policy?
Yes    or    No    or    My health care insurance is provided by my employer.

Which insurance company do you have? About how long have you had your policy with this provider?

Methodology — Tracking Diseases

The purpose of this site is to develop a methodology for collecting information regarding patients’ long-term history. It asks patients, doctors, care-givers, and relatives to consider the patient’s history over time and identify living conditions, foods, and other daily aspects as potential triggers and causative factors in provoking and / or promoting the patient’s disease.
The goals of this data collection is:
—  Identify foods, medications, and lifestyle conditions that have detrimental side effects;
—  Identify common chemicals found in foods and everyday products that increase disease risks;
—  Quantify the meanings of chemicals and lifestyle conditions shown to have a disease relation.

Data collected will be used anonymously to identifying specific factors and forces that could have provoked and promoted diseases. Information will be sorted by various items to identify correlations.

Please be assured that no information you provide will be — or can be — tied to you or anyone else. Geographic location is requested only to help isolate and focus compiled results upon potential local causative factors. For example, if a person people lived near high tension electric power lines for decades and contracted a brain tumor, there may be reason to conclude that high tension electric lines were a causative factor. If other people who lived in the same area also contracted a similar condition, that may solidify some conclusions.

Similarly, if a patient had used a toothpaste or deodorant containing aluminum compounds for several years and now has contracted Alzheimer’s Disease, there may be reason to conclude that aluminum compounds in either toothpaste or deodorant were contributing trigger forces. If several patients used similar products, there may be correlations worth analyzing further.

The Realities Of Healthcare

What does Obamacare do to you?

It makes your doctor more likely to retire. It transfers you from your doctor. It moves you from your hospital. It reduces your privacy. It provides your personal information and doctor-patient conversations available to the IRS & other government agencies.


Obamacare Is

Obamacare is a disguised means for the government to take over one-sixth of the entire US economy. The government — politicians, un-elected officials, & bureaucrats — will determine if and when you will be allowed to receive medical care.

Health care is the secondary objective for the Obama administration. The administration’s primary objective is to control Americans. The individuals in charge of this administration and in Congress are not subject to Obamacare’s rules, procedures, regulations, and rationing of resources. Obamacare takes $716 billion from Medicaid. That is money that will not be available to pay for Medicaid recipients’ health care needs. Under Obamacare the American health care industry will operate inefficiently as do most government agencies. There will be massive fraud, incompetence, and bureaucratic problems. Americans will learn to expect rationing of care. Soon everyone will know someone who died because he did not receive health care.


Grow Up & Become Self Reliant America

The US Supreme Court demonstrated that it is not going to protect the American people from tyrants, bullies, or bad legislation. Nor will it shield America from socialism.

Pundits and legal experts will argue forever about exactly why and what Chief Justice Roberts’ intent was when he cast the deciding vote making Obamacare constitutional. The legal and intellectual discussion carries no meaning regarding health care for most Americans. The court told the American people that it is not — in this case at least — going to protect them.

Therefore all Americans are now under legalized federal control. The American people are on their own. They must mature, consider, and come to understand what socialized health care and unbounded control by Congress will mean to each of them.


The ObamaCare Experiment — Live & Your Are A Guinea Pig

Great Britain and Canada have nationalized health care systems. In each country there is one payer for health care services: the national government. These systems are called single payer systems. In each country the health care system has been known by the same term since being established. That term is socialized medicine.

In 2010, the US Congress passed legislation that established the federal government as the only insurer and power that may approve health care services for all Americans. All Americans will be covered by this federal health care system. The federal government will pay for only those health care costs that it approves. The federal government will be the only legal insurance provider.

That is socialized medicine. In 1994, when Bill & Hillary Clinton attempted to pass health care legislation, it was correctly called socialized medicine. Americans recognized it as socialized medicine and rejected it. Do Americans today fail to understand that Obamacare is socialized medicine?
