There are 4 million employees in the federal government, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Nation Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, tops them out at $419,608 a year as of 2019. Fauci even makes more than the president.
That means that, within the next three years he will have raked in $2.5 million since 2019 — and more if he gets a raise. Fauci has been at the NIH since 1968, and presiding as director since 1984. While most federal salaries have a cap on them, Fauci’s is an exception.
This article from organiclifestylemagazine.comis a very interesting read especially in light of vaccination information. And one would have to ask, are we returning to this state of affairs with our water pollution now? With only 40% of our rivers now safe enough to swim in, courtesy of pollution being so rampant in ‘clean, green’ NZ, reading this article is reminiscent of that. We featured an article recently of a young man contracting Trench Mouth from the Manawatu River. The Thames had sewage dumped in it for instance until somebody joined the dots with the connection to disease. Those days have gone now yet folks still have not learned. Once again sewage, industrial waste and more are being dumped into rivers and people are getting sick as we saw recently in the Hawke’s Bay incident. Nowadays the root cause is not ignorance but more likely corporate profiteering if you dig deep enough. EnvirowatchRangitikei
Vaccines get all the glory, but most plumbers will tell you that it was water infrastructure – sewage systems and clean water – that eradicated disease, and they’re right.
Disease Before Plumbing
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Europeans despised all things Roman, including bathing. There was a widespread belief that getting wet caused illness. This contempt and fear of bathing persisted through the Dark Ages.
Some Europeans defied local customs by bathing, but this was usually done over great protest. When Queen Elizabeth bathed, her servants panicked, fearing she would become ill and die.
This resistance to bathing was brought across the Atlantic to America, influencing habits all the way into the 1800s. In 1835, Philadelphia almost passed an ordinance forbidding wintertime bathing. Ten years later, Boston did outlaw bathing, except by medical directive. (Though this law was not widely enforced, it does illustrate the American resistance to bathing as late as the mid 1800s.)
How Plumbing Eradicated Disease
Before plumbing was widely used, indoor facilities consisted of a washstand and a washbowl, a pitcher, and a chamber pot or commode. Human waste was thrown into the street or anywhere convenient.
This total lack of sanitation in urban areas filled with rats and other vermin provided the perfect environment to spread disease. The Black Plague alone killed 75 million – 200 million people – including 1/3 of Europe’s population. Though this disease is not entirely eradicated, human infection has become a rare occurrence. The last plague epidemic in America was in the early 1900’s.
Polio and Plumbing
Polio thrives in fecal matter and is easily transmitted through human waste. Plumbing and water sanitation in India is way behind the rest of the industrialized world. In areas where sanitation and hygiene are good, polio is rare. In areas where sanitation and hygiene are poor, the disease can spread rapidly.
Immunization efforts have received a lot of publicity and have garnered most of the credit for India being declared “polio free” by the World Health Organization…
