An important and definitive “mainstream” government study done nearly a decade ago got little attention because the science came down on the wrong side. It found that after decades and billions of dollars spent promoting flu shots for the elderly, the mass vaccination program did not result in saving lives. In fact, the death rate among the elderly increased substantially.
The authors of the study admitted a bias going into the study. Here
was the history as described to me: Public health experts long assumed
flu shots were effective in the elderly. But, paradoxically, all the
studies done failed to demonstrate a benefit. Instead of considering
that they, the experts, could be wrong–instead of believing the
scientific data–the public health experts assumed the studies were wrong. After all, flu shots have to work, right?
So the NIH launched an effort to do “the” definitive study that would
actually prove, for the first time, once and for all, that flu shots
were beneficial to the elderly. The government would gather some of the
brightest scientific minds for the research, and adjust for all kinds of
factors that could be masking that presumed benefit.
But when they finished, no matter how they crunched the numbers, the
data kept telling the same story: flu shots were of no benefit to the
elderly. Quite the opposite. The death rate had increased markedly since
widespread flu vaccination among older Americans. The scientists
finally had to acknowledge that decades of public health thought had
been mistaken. READ MORE

A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea became the first person in the city to test positive for the virus Thursday, setting off a search for anyone who might have come into contact with him.
The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center and placed in isolation at the same time as investigators sought to retrace every step he had taken over the past several days.
At least three people he had contact with in recent days have been placed in isolation. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which dispatched a team to New York, is conducting its own test to confirm the positive test on Thursday, which was performed by a city lab. READ MORE

DALLAS (AP) -- They drew his blood, put tubes down his throat and wiped up his diarrhea. They analyzed his urine and wiped saliva from his lips, even after he had lost consciousness.
About 70 staff members at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital were involved in the care of Thomas Eric Duncan after he was hospitalized, including a nurse now being treated for the same Ebola virus that killed the Liberian man who was visiting Dallas, according to medical records his family provided to The Associated Press.
