Migrants Don’t Bring Diseases

People who “oppose” immigration often argue that migrants bring “diseases” with them, and that they then become a “burden” to health systems in their new countries because they’re so sick.

But that’s not true, a team of experts argued in a new report released. In fact, they point out that immigrants make up a significant portion of the “healthcare” work forces in their new homelands.

This is not satire, follow the link to see for yourself at Migrants don’t bring disease. In fact, they help fight it.

So you will not catch heart disease or cancer from migrants, but they are full of communicable diseases such as “HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis, hepatitis, Chagas Disease” and many others.

Oh, and they might work in the “healthcare” industry … so, um… they “FIGHT” diseases… yeah, that’s it… they fight diseases between their bouts of “bloody” coughing fits.

The “Tobacco Smoke Enemas” seems to have had some popularity in the mid to late eighteenth century.  It’s hard to source this one because dozens of websites and blogs use the same exact wording:

“The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to the popular phrase ‘blow smoke up one’s ass.” 

The “poverty and deprivation” they’re running away from don’t seem to actually cause any problems whatsoever according to the experts. So why do they need “emergency” asylum again?

This medical technique may be used for the correction of cross-eyedness in people but “I’m not gonna put my lips on the same end of the pipe that they used!”

When NBC News quotes a paper published in the British journal “Lancet” you know something is about to hit the fan:

“McGovern and Spiegel were among 24 commissioners who worked on a two-year project to analyze whether migration spreads disease and to look into the effects that migrants have on health. The final study, published in the Lancet medical journal, finds that migration benefits economies. It also finds that people are using myths to fight migration.”

For added emphasis, NBC includes a quote from none other than the Lancet Editor himself, Richard Horton:  “In too many countries, the issue of migration is used to divide societies and advance a populist agenda.”

I don’t know about you, but when the editor of a medical journal “dabbles” openly in politics I worry. And I’m not the only one.

Commenting on an unrelated issue, Sir Mark Pepys wrote of Lancet editor Richard Horton:

“The failure of the Menduca et al authors to disclose their extraordinary conflicts of interest… are the most serious, unprofessional and unethical errors. The transparent effort to conceal this vicious and substantially mendacious partisan political diatribe as an innocent humanitarian appeal has no place in any serious publication, let alone a professional medical journal, and would disgrace even the lowest of the gutter press.”

In addition, Pepys accused Horton personally saying:

“Horton’s behavior in this case is consistent with his longstanding and wholly inappropriate use of The Lancet as a vehicle for his own extreme political views. It has greatly detracted from the former high standing of the journal.”

In response, Horton said: “How can you separate politics and health? The two go hand-in-hand.”

Well then, Mr. Horton, perhaps you should stay the hell out of both as suggested by Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton: “I find it awful that people oppose the spread of TBC and HIV by immigrants. After all, these poor bacteria and viruses have rights too, don’t they? Who are we to decide what the ‘good germs’ are. In a true, open and all-inclusive society, we should open our door to all life forms.”
