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.

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 was wrong – it’s worse than that.

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

Apple is Punishing Apps That Try to Stop People Becoming Addicted to Their iPhones

They want you hooked.

Published

on

Apple is removing or restricting apps that are designed to prevent people from becoming addicted to their iPhones.

“Over the past year, Apple has removed or restricted at least 11 of the 17 most downloaded screen-time and parental-control apps,” reports the New York Times.

“In some cases, Apple forced companies to remove features that allowed parents to control their children’s devices or that blocked children’s access to certain apps and adult content. In other cases, it simply pulled the apps from its App Store,” writes Jack Nicas.

“Can you really trust that Apple wants people to spend less time on their phones?” asked Fred Stutzman, chief executive of Freedom, a screen-time app that had more than 770,000 downloads before Apple removed it last summer.

The effort is completely at odds with Apple’s publicly stated desire to help people reduce their phone obsession.

“It is clear that there are certain apps that people can get in the mindset of just scrolling through mindlessly and continuously picking up their phones and looking to see what is happening this second,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier this month.

However, Apple’s own behavior in punishing app creators who try to curb phone addiction proves Cook is being dishonest.

As the video below documents, while companies like Apple want to keep you addicted, tech elites deliberately keep their own children away from the same technology.

WOW! Is this the tastiest protein bar on the market?
