Dr. Suzanne Humphries speaks on the totally unnecessary practice of injecting the vitamin K shot into newborn babies –
From the Vitamin K injection label: “The injectable form of vitamin K can cause severe (sometimes fatal) allergic reactions when given by injection into a muscle or vein. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction such as rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or trouble breathing.”
Potential exists for the newborn to experience hypersensitivity to any component of this medication.

Vitamin K insert
INJECTION AquaMEPHYTON® (PHYTONADIONE)
Aqueous Colloidal Solution of Vitamin K1

WARNING – INTRAVENOUS USE
Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of AquaMEPHYTON* (Phytonadione). Typically these severe reactions have resembled hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis, including shock and cardiac and/or respiratory arrest. Some patients have exhibited these severe reactions on receiving AquaMEPHYTON for the first time. The majority of these reported events occurred following intravenous administration, even when precautions have been taken to dilute the AquaMEPHYTON and to avoid rapid infusion. Therefore, the INTRAVENOUS route should be restricted to those situations where another route is not feasible and the increased risk involved is considered justified.

Lavrov: As Syria to put chem arms under int’l control, strike unnecessary

Lavrov: As Syria to put chem arms under int’l control, strike unnecessary

The decision to place Syrian chemical weapons under international control makes a military strike against the country unnecessary, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“I am sure that our American partners, as President Obama earlier said, firmly prefer a peaceful solution to the Syrian chemical weapon problem,” Lavrov said at a joint press conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Geneva, ahead of their talks. 

These new developments on Syria make it possible to call new talks, the so-called “Geneva-2” peace conference, to find a solution to the ongoing war, Lavrov said. 

The US, however, still has doubts that Syria is ready to give up its chemical weapons stockpile, Kerry said. President Assad has 10 days to join the international chemical weapons ban treaty, he added. 

Kerry said that during his talks with Lavrov he would try to find out whether it is possible to put Syrian WMD under the supervision of international organizations, and to eventually get them out of the country and ensure their destruction.

Earlier in the day, the UN said that it received a letter from Syria confirming the country’s intention to join the treaty banning the production of chemical arms, their stockpiling and use.

The Syrian government’s letter of accession is being translated, AP cited UN associate spokesman Farhan Haq as saying. Signing the letter accession begins the process for a country to become party to the international agreement, the official said. 

Kerry rejected as not quick enough Assad’s proposal to begin submitting data on the Syrian chemical weapons within a month of signing the Chemical Weapons Convention, given the circumstances of last month’s poison gas attack.

Earlier Thursday, in an interview with a Russian TV channel, the Syrian leader described his proposal as “a standard procedure.” 

“There is nothing standard about this process” because Assad has used his chemical weapons, Kerry told the news conference. “The words of the Syrian regime in our judgment are simply not enough.”

“This is not a game,” he said, adding that the decision on the chemical weapons transfer had to be “comprehensive, verifiable and also, implemented in a timely fashion.”

He added that the US would go ahead with its earlier plan to launch a “limited” military strike against Syria if Damascus doesn’t agree to dismantle its chemical arsenal properly.

“There ought to be consequences if it doesn’t take place,” AP reported Kerry as saying.

Kerry and Lavrov, accompanied by delegations of experts, are going to discuss Russia’s proposal for Damascus to put its chemical weapons under international control and to join the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Syria has accepted the proposal.
