Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

 

  How To Prevent Autism by Dara Berger - The statistics are alarming and become more so every year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 in 68 children have been identified with an autism spectrum disorder, making it one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the United States. 

CDC Study Shows Up to 7.7 Times the Risk of Miscarriage After Influenza Vaccine: By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. - The CDC has just published a seismic study (Donahue et al. 2017 Vaccine 35:5314) linking spontaneous abortions in women to flu vaccines.  The study reviewed data for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 flu seasons.  Women vaccinated with the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) in the 2010-2011 season were 3.7 times more likely to experience a spontaneous abortion within 28 days than women not receiving the vaccine. 

What You May Not Know About the Flu Shot: It’s “flu-shot season” again, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to push vaccines on the population (pregnant women and infants included), in a futile effort to prevent cases of influenza. Towards the end of every season, we hear from the CDC that the efficacy of the vaccine was 62% or 58% or lower. But it is even worse...

Back to School, Away from Toxins - by Deirdre Imus, August 10, 2017 - For countless American kids, back to school time means shopping for new backpacks, supplies, and outfits. For millions of families, especially those whose children have asthma and other health or learning issues, it also means ensuring that their child’s school won’t make them sicker, or interfere with their learning.

    Deirdre Imus and Lis Wiehl Debut 'Blonde on Blonde' with Talk of Sexting, Apologizing, and Smoking Pot

    Deirdre Imus and Lis Wiehl kicked off their debut installment of Blonde on Blonde this week by picking a bone with the I-Man. Not a great sign.

    Wiehl, a Fox News legal analyst, had done mounds of research on all sorts pressing issues to prepare for her weekly appearance with Deirdre, but was peeved about the segment’s title.

    “We’re not just blondes,” she informed Imus, who does not “sext,” but teased his guest that he’s read the ones she writes to Geraldo.

    “Sexting,” means sending sexually provocative e-mails or text messages, and Wiehl and Dierdre were outraged to learn that children engage in this sort of illicit behavior. But often, technology-obsessed parents are the ones teaching their kids bad habits.

    “This is the first generation of kids that this is how they’re growing up,” Deirdre said, adding that between cell phones, Facebook, and computers, “It’s nonstop.”

    Wiehl’s two children have cell phones, a decision she defended by saying, “What if they get stuck somewhere? What if they need a ride home? What if I’m in the city and, god forbid, something terrible happens?”

    Deirdre chalked Wiehl’s mentality, and that of hordes of parents, up to remnants of post-9/11 anxiety. Imus was less tactful, telling Wiehl that her children using cell phones will cause them to get brain tumors.

    “When their head glows and they’re shoving ice cream cones at their forehead, you won’t be laughing at the I-Man,” he said, unfortunately referring to himself not only in third person, but also as “the I-Man.”

    A recent study showed that men have a higher threshold for bad behavior than women do, and are therefore less likely to apologize. Unless, of course, that woman is Deirdre Imus.

    “You won’t apologize for behaviors you don’t like that you do yourself,” Imus told his wife. “For example, if you’re typing on your dopey computer and Wyatt or I interrupt you, you freak out.” Meanwhile, if Imus is on the phone or doing business on his computer, “She is not reluctant at all to butt in, and interrupt me, and never say, ‘excuse me.’”

    In Deirdre’s defense, she’s often unsure the person on the other end of the line—usually Charles or Lupica—is even listening, given the substance of the conversation. “He goes into detail about his prostate, his throat, his toe,” she said. “And something you said you had on your butt.”

    Maybe some of Imus’s ills could be cured with marijuana, which Californians could legalize if a statewide referendum called Proposition 19 passes in November. “It’s not going to happen,” Wiehl said, noting, “Federal law will always trump state law.”

    Imus, for one, wouldn’t mind if it were legal. “I’d rather someone smoke dope than drink alcohol,” he said, adding that ideally, people would do neither.

    And if Deirdre had it her way, they wouldn’t eat bagels, either. When Imus pretended to—oh my god—eat a bagel with cream cheese, she declared, “That would be like you putting a cigarette in your mouth.”

    Tune in to next week’s Blonde on Blonde segment and find out what else Imus can’t eat, drink, or smoke! (Hint: it’s pretty much everything).
