Medieval Diseases Making a Comeback Due to Feces on Streets

Experts warn of “public health crisis”.

Published

Medieval diseases are making a comeback in major American cities thanks to the increasing amount of feces on the streets.

According to a report by Kaiser Health News, “Infectious diseases – some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages – are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.”

Outbreaks of Shigella bacteria and Hepatitis A, both are which are caused by exposure to feces, are on the increase in Southern California, New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, “primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs.”

Experts are now warning of a “public health crisis” that could see the diseases spread to the general population.

Many would assert that the homeless problem – and by extension the feces problem – in cities like San Francisco is being exacerbated by the government handing out free needles to drug addicts.

San Francisco’s junkie population – many of whom live on the streets and use sidewalks as outdoor toilets – now stands at 24,500, an increase of 2,000 drug users since 2012 and 8,500 more people than the city’s 16,000 high school students.

Despite this increase, the city handed out a record 5.8 million free syringes last year – about 500,000 more than in 2017. There were 9,659 calls complaining about needles littering the streets in 2018, an increase of a third on 2017 numbers.

Instead of keeping people mired in an endless cycle of desperation and addiction, surely the money would be better spent on helping them go clean?

U.S. Birth Rate Plunges to All Time Low

Women choosing careers over having families.

The U.S. birth rate has hit a record low of 1.7, well below the replacement rate of 2.1, as more women choose careers over having families.

According to figures released by the CDC, the number of live births in the U.S. dropped to 3.8 million last year, which is the lowest level in 32 years.

Tumbling fertility rates combined with women choosing careers over babies is being blamed for the decline, with only women aged 35-44 seeing an increase in birth rates.

Birth rates for all other age groups is in decline, most dramatically amongst teens aged 15-19, with the birth rate for that demographic falling to 17.4 births per 1,000 women, down 72% from a peak of 61.8 in 1991.

It’s really remarkable, not something that we’ve seen over the last century,” said Prof. Buckles.

Just by coincidence, depression levels amongst women have been continually on the rise ever since the cultural shift which sent the message that being a homemaker was an unfulfilling, boring life.

Stories of women who sink into depression because they have left it too late to have children are also becoming increasingly commonplace.

Irish Government Health Body Tells Women to Flush Their Aborted Babies Down the Toilet

“They can be disposed of as you wish”.

Published

Ireland’s government health body has a section on its website that advises women to flush their aborted babies down the toilet.

Yes, really.

In a section entitled “pregnancy remains,” the Health Service Executive, which uses public funds for the provision of health and personal social services for everyone living in Ireland, tells women how to dispose of an unwanted fetus.

Following a referendum last year, it is now legal in Ireland to get an abortion during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy and later in cases where the pregnant woman’s life or health is at risk.

“If you have an abortion before 9 weeks of pregnancy, you can decide how to dispose of the remains. They can be flushed down the toilet or wrapped in tissue and disposed of as you wish,” states the HSE website.

I used to say that we live in a society which treats its young like a medical waste product.

I was wrong – it’s worse than that.

We live in a society that treats its young like literal shit.

Welcome to clown world!

Swedish Doctor Says Deadly Parasitic Disease Has Doubled Since ‘Refugee’ Wave

“Most people are sick from Syria and Afghanistan”.

An infectious diseases doctor has warned that the number of cases in Sweden of Leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease which can lead to death, has doubled since the 2015 migrant wave.

“Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by an intracellular protozoan parasite (genus Leishmania) transmitted by the bite of a female phlebotomine sandfly,” according to Medscape.

The parasites that spread the disease are common in the Middle East, Africa and in Mediterranean countries, however it is not normally present in northern Europe.

According to Sara Karlsson Söbirk, an infectious doctor at a hospital in Helsingborg who has studied the issue for 20 years, the number of cases in on the increase.

“We have in a collaboration with the Public Health Authority looked at the number of cases between 1993-2016 and see a peak of 35 cases in 2016, probably a direct consequence of the large refugee wave the year before, when most people are sick from Syria and Afghanistan,” said Söbirk.

She notes that most of the cases were found in people who had emigrated to Sweden or who had traveled in the countries where the parasite was present then returned to Sweden.

The parasites can remain in the body for years before being activated as a result of a weak immune system.

“The attack on internal organs is the most serious form of the disease (visceral leishmaniasis) and usually leads to death if it is not detected and treated in time,” reports FriaTider.
