Benefits of Including #Millets in Your Daily Diet Men...
 
Millets today seems to be the magic word for the health freaks. Actually millets were consumed in large quantities during years gone back. Now they have made a comeback for their highly nutritious content. Millets are small seeds from a grass family of shrubs. https://stylenrich.com/millets-benefits/

You have my respect, Dr O'Sullivan, for the work you do in a disadvantaged community and for standing up here on that stage and being calm but blunt.

You think measles etc rates are bad in the US? They're far worse, per capita, in New Zealand. Same factors at play, but somehow the impact is greater.

From a post I made about measles a few years ago:

Interesting, and undervaccination is worse in NZ - where there is largely excellent access to medical care and no financial barrier to these vaccinations. Refusal to vaccinate is often, as in the US, clustered in educated liberal groups as well as a few religious crowds.

Measles in NZ for 2014, pop 4.5 mil: 283 confirmed cases. Just for giggles, I extrapolated this to California's 38 mil population. If California had the same measles proportion as NZ, they'd have had 2,390 cases last year. The entire US had 644 cases - the most in two decades.

So let's compare NZ to the whole US, pop 316 mil. If the US population got measles at the same rate NZers did in 2014, there would have been 19,873 cases. I'm frankly staggered by this. It's discussed once in a while, but why not more? We're doing so much worse than the USA in this. Are my numbers totally wrong?
