Apologies to the AC community & the Kunos development team

    I would like to apologise to the entire AC community & the Kunos development team for publicly airing my views on some unpleasant topics. I can not change my views however I can change my behavior in the public arena. I realise that most of us come here to enjoy sim racing and to have a bit of fun and alleviate some of the stress from our daily lives and all I did was take that away for some people.

    I have recently been diagnoses with extreme Hypothyroidism (hashimoto disease) and for a person that has never taken daily medication this particular medication is really messing with my hormones & sleep patterns. I also have a new baby due to arrive in the next week or two. Some of you will rightly say stop making excuses and that is fair enough, I will take that on the chin. I acted like a d!ck...

    For what it is worth I am truly sorry to anyone that was affected by my behavior.

    I do appreciate your honesty, but I don't think an apology was required.

    You asked this question in another thread but I thought instead of hijacking it I would reply here. You asked earlier, why does a hospital want to give my new born baby a Hep-B shot, when the mother and father were tested and show negative?

    The reason is simple, the time an adult is exposed to Hepatitis-B and the time it can be detected in a test is four weeks. Even though the mother might have been tested there is no way to ensure that she wasn't recently infected and it's best to give the new baby a vaccination shot. If a baby contracts Hep-B at birth the virus can cause long term liver disease such as Cirrhosis.

    And then you have the balls to go and apologise .
    Eh, no worries, Coanda, we all need to vent from time to time .
    By the way, are you a musical man ?
    If yea, check this out (helped me a bit of the way battling sleeping disorder) maybe it helps you too .

    Thank you so much for posting this ^. Having the humility to share your story alongside being self-reflective is a beautiful thing.

    All the best with your health and new life journey with the baby!

    Thank you for the supportive comments :):cool:

    Yes & no. I am hopeful to one day fulfill a childhood dream and learn how to play the drums. e-drums for my current environment will hopefully make that a reality however like many high end luxury items cash plays a important part in our decisions. Thank you, I do appreciate the link. To be honest I have battled on & off with insomnia for most of my adult life. It is not enjoyable when it kicks in hard. Over the years I have tried a few tricks to lessen the blow and music therapy has been one of them. Mainly pure isochronic & binaural tones. I have also tried adjusting household lighting temperatures, limiting screen time (previously not easy being a coder), natural supplements, herbal teas, evening time dietary changes which are counterproductive to my fitness needs, exercise, more nature time, reading and also meditation. I find daily deep long meditation coupled with isochronic or binaural tones works best for me however these days I can not always fit this into my daily routine for whatever reason. Thyroxine medication is not helping my cause at the moment however maybe too much ACC is the real problem here :p

    Thank you for the kind words. I also believe self reflection is a good thing. Maybe I can be accused of too much self reflection at times. I guess life is about finding that balance. Humility, whilst I thought I had some, after living in a 3rd world country for almost 5 years I quickly received a dose of reality and was shown what real humility is. Unlearning my western ways has been a real journey and work in progress.

    Thank you for taking the time to write your explanation. I do understand your point & I understand Cirrhosis of the liver. Someone very close to me has this disease. The mother & I have been house potatoes for a few months now and we are not into needle sharing, swapping sexual partners (well as far as I know :D) and not fulfilling any midnight vampire cravings therefore I am fairly confident this will not be an issue day 1. If need be I would prefer not to further agitate our baby just minutes after it is born with a 3rd shot. The 5/6 in 1 vaccine which includes hep-b is scheduled at 1/12 months of age.

    If you are happy to keep this civil dialog going I am also curious about what your thoughts are on the criticism given to the 10.4 mg of Propylene Glycol & 10 mg of Polysorbate-80 found within the 1 mg Vitamin K shot given at birth? Are those numbers correct? According to https://scienceofmom.com/2015/11/09/are-the-ingredients-in-the-newborn-vitamin-k-shot-safe/ they are... Polysorbate-80 pops up in most vaccines and has some criticism that it may contain residual amounts of Ethyelyn oxide & 1,4-Dioxine and that it crosses the BBB (blood brain barrier). This is where I am confused by the following statement:-

    Source:- https://scientistabe.wordpress.com/tag/polysorbate-80/
    "If we go back to the manure anti-vaxxers say, the amount injected via vaccines is enough to cause a barrier opening. According to John Hopkins University Institute of Vaccine Safety (http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/components-DTaP.htm), the expected concentration of polysorbate is lesser or equal to 100mcg or micrograms. Thats 0.1mg per dose. If we assume such dose is injected to a newborn (average weight ~3 kgs), then the amount injected is about 0.033mg/kg. Thats 2700 times less than what has been reported to induce a BBB disruption."

    Which source is correct? Is it 10.4 mg or 0.1 mg per dose?

    Others have criticized P-80 links to HPV, HCG vaccines and sterilization of women or increased chances of abortions mid term, particularly in 3rd word countries which I now live. Public voices and some doctors have also suggested tetanus vaccines were used and contained HCG vaccines (see next statement).

    "What really raised red flags about this so-called tetanus vaccine was the highly unusual inoculation schedule. This vaccine demanded five shots over two years -- a schedule that isn't used for tetanus.
    "The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992." explained Dr. Ngare.
    Furthermore, the vaccine was only being given to women of child-bearing years, not men or women beyond the age of fertility.
    As Dr. Ngare explains, the same vaccine sterilization campaign was used in 1993 in Mexico and both Nicaragua and the Philippines in 1994. WHO attempted to bring it to Kenya in the 1990's, Ngare says, but the effort was stopped by the Catholic Church.
    According to Brian Clowes of Human Life International, the United Nations is not refuting the laboratory testing and confirmation of HCG in the vaccines. Instead, it claims some vaccines were "contaminated" in the manufacturing process -- an absurd claim that no reasonable person would believe because HCG should never even be anywhere near a vaccine manufacturing operation unless someone put it there deliberately."

    Here are some interesting studies in humans & rats:-

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?orig_db=PubMed&cmd=Search&term=Food+Chem+Toxicol+[Jour]+AND+183[page]+AND+1993[pdat]

    https://www.fasebj.org/doi/abs/10.1...ce&volume=7&maxtoshow=&andorexacttitleabs=and

    I understand Propylene Glycol is very much another hot topic as it is found in the anti-freeze of car radiators. Yes it is found in many processed foods (which I avoid), alcohol, some ice-creams and cosmetics (which I avoid, except for Saturday night :D) and is not it's more toxic cousin Ethelyn Glycol which is more problematic for internal organs. The FDA (which you already know I do not trust) has this listed as "generally safe for consumption". From what I know the laws in Europe are tighter on the amounts that can be used in foods and alcohol. What are your thoughts?

    I believe an oral non synthetic Vitamin K only alternative can be given over the first few weeks of birth however it maybe less effective depending on sources you read and it is not always readily available depending on where you live and the mother may not qualify for it depending on her pharma drug routine.

    As always no baiting, I just want to receive different peoples perspectives, links and science before we make our difficult decisions because depending on the pediatrician we have seen there is also some varying information given.

    Anyway, ironically Mercury once said... "The show must go on!..." Back to ACC!
