Aus scientists ask WHO for URGENT help

Postby pinkeye » 18 May 2018, 01:51

We now know that about 50% of remote communities are testing positive for an ANCIENT VIRUS.

This virus is the ancient parent of the HIV/Aids epidemic, it seems.
It has its own name... but has never really been studied until recently. Here in Oz.!!

Our scientists have now pinpointed the cause of so much disease and death in remote communities. Statistics that have been very hard to accept, or to understand, now have an explanation. WHY life expectancy and overall health are so poor. :sad

It explains, in pure terms, the reason for the shorter life expectancy, and the range of endemic illness disease and death, which afflicts these communities.

Oz scientists have asked WHO for urgent assistance in isolating and trying to find more data and possible agents to stem this virus.
There is NO current cure, almost no information and no guidelines on how to manage this virus.

What it does is weaken the immune system so that many other agents can act to cause illness, and ultimately death.

I've always been appalled at the outcomes for these, our fellow people, and this information suggests it isn't just down to their lifestyle, or their lack of government support. The blame game must stop right here.
THEY did not cause this, nor are THEY responsible for the statistics.

It goes much deeper. :sad

I hope a concerted effort can now be made, to address this virus.

it would be great if you put up a link to whatever article you sourced that from so others have a clue what you're on about.

Once this gets out, good luck encouraging workers into these communities.

There you go JS. Thanks Mothra.

Perhaps now, with help from Japan, for example, some real positive results may ultimately be achieved.

As for a backlash from the rest of our community.. it seems most people are totally unaware of this vector for disease existing in Australia.
Like so many other things we are ignorant of.

I'm not willing to pre-suppose what anyone else thinks, but I do think those people who fly-in, fly-out ought to be informed .

What IS your problem.?
I keep saying I don't do links. I say what I see or hear. I'm pretty good at summarising things, so why you can't understand what I write is a mystery. Perhaps you think I make things up.?

:yak yak :yak yak :roll

I only start a new post because I think it may be of interest to others, or I think the topic should be more widely disseminated. Too bad mate if I don't supply links. NOT MY JOB. :bgrin

Because? it is also, like HIV/Aids, transmittable through sexual intercourse. So leave those ladies ALONE yeah?

Just to inform you.

This topic was put up by me on the basis of something I saw on ABCNEWS . Where is the link I'm supposed to provide.? I wouldn't have a clue as to how I should provide said link, and basically, I couldn't give a fuck about links either. Take it or leave it. GAF.

Mothra has obviously looked into it, based on my post, and has provided the LINK.
Thanks again MOTHRA.
