    Alexei Andronov MOSCOW—Several policemen serving in the drugs control department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have been arrested for allegedly selling a bad batch of a psychotropic drug that has killed several of their clients. Victims of the cops’ alleged merchandise are believed to include at least two school children who were hospitalized. One of the kids reportedly died along with at least three other people. Siberia has been suffering from an addiction to synthetic drugs—collectively known as “bath salts”—for years but now the state’s drugs control agency appears to be getting in on the act. The drug seized in this instance may have been a contaminated batch of mephedrone, sometimes known as “Meow Meow.” Earlier this month, local newspapers warned there was a new batch of drugs threatening lives in the wealthy Siberian city of Surgut, which is known as the Russian oil capital. “One dose of it kills,” the reports said. It took local investigators almost two weeks to find an alleged drug kingpin in their own ranks. The head of the regional drugs control department,...

    KIDS are more likely to suffer a deadly allergic reaction at Halloween and Easter, doctors have warned. Experts have called for an increased awareness around what's really in sweets and candies as they found that most allergic reactions were due to unknown allergies. 2Kids are more likely to have an allergic reaction at Halloween as most sweets aren't labelled with allergy advice, experts have warnedCredit: Getty Images - Getty A team of researchers at Montreal Children’s Hospital in Canada examined the link between peanut and tree-nut allergic reactions. They compared the severity of reactions (anaphylaxis) during Halloween, Easter, Christmas, Diwali, Chinese New Year and Eid al-Adha. The study looked at the results from 1,390 patients who had visited A&E departments between 2011 and 2020. The data was taken from hospitals in four different areas: British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Around 62 per cent of the patients were boys and the median age of patients was 5.4 years. For allergic reactions triggered by peanuts, there was an 85 per cent increase in the average amount of daily cases...

    WHEN I heard about the Novichok poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny overseas last month, my blood ran cold. I was instantly transported back to Salisbury, Wiltshire, where, in March 2018, I'd advised the UK Government on the very same deadly nerve agent. 31Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned overseas last monthCredit: Reuters 31Navalny is one of countless victims of chemical attacks across the world. Above, young kids are treated after a gas attack in Eastern Ghouta, SyriaCredit: EPA 'Frozen like statues' Back then, the lethal chemical had left former MI6 double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, fighting for their lives in comas. As my friend, in the intelligence world, chillingly told me at the time, "the doctors have never seen anything like it. They’re frozen, like statues." That terrifying attack, which resulted in the death of an innocent mother, was a wake-up call for the UK: chemical weapons are a very real threat. But now, following the poisoning of Putin critic Navalny - who came out of his own coma this week -...
    DEADLY asthma attacks could spike to "unprecedented levels" when kids go back to school after the coronavirus lockdown, experts warn. Campaigners say that the disruption to basic asthma care as a knock-on result of the Covid-19 pandemic could leave thousands of children at risk. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 4NINTCHDBPICT000563684829Credit: Getty Images - Getty The UK's leading respiratory charity, Asthma UK, estimates that up to 133,800 children in England have missed out on their annual review. During the routine checks, a child’s inhaler technique is checked and they are provided with an up to date asthma action plan. Experts say they are essential in keeping children with asthma well and out of hospital. But reviews suspended for three months to free up capacity at GP surgeries in response to the pandemic. Get checked The charity is now calling on parents to contact their doctor to reschedule their child's asthma review to reduce the risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. It comes ahead of September when the number of children with asthma admitted...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is cautioning parents and doctors about an outbreak of a rare and life-threatening condition that will mostly strike children. Outbreaks of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) last flared up in 2018, after the CDC received 238 reports of the disease. The serious neurologic condition normally peaks every two years between August and November. “As we head into these critical next months, CDC is taking necessary steps to help clinicians better recognize signs and symptoms of AFM in children,” said CDC Director Robert Redfield. Parents and doctors stay on the lookout for AFMs symptoms, which include permanent paralysis and life-threatening respiratory failure in children who were once healthy, according to the CDC. “We’ve learned a lot but we have a lot to learn about AFM. We don’t yet know why certain kids develop AFM when the great majority who have respiratory illness recover with no neurologic symptoms,” said Thomas Clark, deputy director of CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases. Symptoms include current or recent respiratory illness, fever, pain or numbness in limbs, difficulty walking, talking...
    NOT vaccinating your children could prove more deadly than the coronavirus, experts have warned. At present tens of millions of kids are going without vaccines for infectious and viral illnesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 2Experts have warned that not getting your kids vaccinated could be worse than the coronavirusCredit: Getty Images - Getty The disruption caused has meant many have missed their jabs, while some parents have kept kids away from surgeries due to fears they might contract the coronavirus in health settings. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has claimed that the decline in vaccinations will reverse years of hard-won progress . Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO hailed vaccines and said they are one of the most “powerful tools” in the history of public health, but said that the pandemic has put previous gains at risk. He said that the disruption caused to vaccination programmes could be "far greater than Covid itself". 2Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said vaccines are a powerful tool Credit: AFP or licensors...
    According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis. On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools. Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

    Travis Gettys July 9, 2020 2:59PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story Vice President Mike Pence cited his wife, a teacher, as an expert on reopening schools during a deadly pandemic. The White House has purposefully politicized the decision to send the nation's children back to school, with President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos threatening to cut funding for districts that don't reopen. : "You're seeing the president provide leadership," Pence told reported Wednesday, "and what we are providing for the White House coronavirus task force is partnership with the governors and the state health officials, because we've just got to get our kids back." Pence offered no specifics about the safety of sending children back into school buildings, but cited his wife's expertise. "I have to tell you," he said, "the best expert I know on this topic is my wife, Karen, and she spoke at the summit yesterday very compellingly about how a lot of our kids are hurting out there. They're struggling with loneliness, with social isolation. The American Academy of Pediatrics spoke about...
    Social-distancing measures may be stopping the spread of more than just the coronavirus. Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) is a rare, polio-like disease that targets children and can cause paralysis — or even be fatal. Outbreaks have been spiking in larger waves of infection across the US every other summer since 2012, but doctors are hopeful America will avoid the outbreak anticipated for this season thanks to physical distancing. “[There] is a good chance, based on the data that’s been analyzed, and just thinking theoretically, that we could social distance away an EV-D68 outbreak this year, which would be fantastic,” pediatric infectious disease physician Kevin Messacar told Gizmodo, referring to the virus which causes AFM. Both EV-D68 and polio are enteroviruses, which generally cause a mild but untreatable infection with symptoms similar to the common cold, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Polio and AFM are exceptions, but polio has been successfully eradicated from large portions of the world thanks to a highly effective vaccine. AFM is incurable and there is currently no vaccine to prevent it....
