Quietly, away from public scrutiny, an insidious philosophical proposal has been introduced and is being deployed known as the One Health Initiative. One Health is a strategy which attempts to address contemporary health issues that is supposedly created by the convergence of human, animal, and environmental domains. The basic premise of One Health is that the planetâ€™s resources are limited. Therefore animal and human must vie for these restricted resources. In actuality, One Health promotes euthanasia, futile care, and mass culling of populations. One Health supports the idea of sustainable life, a system that mandates a life unit must be a productive and viable unit to warrant its existence and the resources that particular life unit consumes.
Although the concept of One Health is not new—the theory was supported by William Osler and Rudolf Virchow, the Father of Comparative Pathology, and re-articulated in Calvin Schwabe’s ‘Veterinary Medicine and Human Health’ in 1984—our increasing interdependence with animals and their products has spurred the medical and veterinarian professions to readdress such an approach.
Julie L. Gerberding, MD, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, in her keynote presentation at the 144th Annual AVMA Convention held in July of 2007, urged veterinarians and physicians to present a seamless front to protect human and animal health in a shrinking global environment. At the convention, Dr. Davis and Dr. Mahr participated in a joint press conference introduced the concept to the media and explaining the need for the One Health Initiative.
The One Health Initiative purports the convergence of people, animals, and our environment has created a new dynamic—one in which the health of each group is inextricably interconnected.
Â· The demand for animal-based protein is expected to increase by 50% by 2020,
Â· Animal populations are under heightened pressure to survive,
(Due to increasing regulation, the introduction of biologically altered plant and animal disease, and loss of private property ownership that facilitates domestic animal populations)
Â· Loss of biodiversity is highly probable.
(Courtesy of out of control agencies regulatory power who have sold America out for the global dollar)
Â· 1,461 diseases are now recognized in humans,
(What is missing from this â€˜factâ€™ is that the disease list originates from the UN Terrestrial Animal Disease List A & B. Many of these diseases, though now mandated to be reportable, are not serious or dangerous diseases.)
Â· 60% are due to multi-host pathogens characterized by their movement across species lines.
(Many of these dangerous pathogens are a result of our governmentâ€™s obsessive experimentation with biological and weaponized bugs.)
Â· Over the last three decades, approximately 75% of new emerging human infectious diseases are defined as zoonotic.
(The biological weaponized bugs have been deliberately manipulated to cross species through DNA, increasing in lethality to human. The increase in disease is not a result of increase human-animal contact as is presented)
Â· Our increasing interdependence with animals and their products may well be the single most critical risk factor to our own health and well-being with regard to infectious diseases.
(It has long been known that the UN position regarding animals and their by products should be eradicated along with the concept of absolute right in property, i.e.-personal ownership.)
The foundational principles of emergency management: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation were utilized in the perfect natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina, where the lessons learned stimulated more collaboration among animal, human and environmental communities and organizations than ever before.
One Health has assembled an Executive Task Force to address the new trials brought about by the merging of health domains.
The One Health generated a â€˜special needâ€™ for an integrated surveillance system that rapidly detects both potential pathogens and non-infectious threats such as toxicants and contaminants in human, animal, and environmental domains. Phase III of the National Animal Identification System known as NAIS is tracking and surveillance. Phase III of NAIS invisibly dovetails right into the UN One Health agenda of integrated surveillance.
Striving towards population control of life One Health is the collaborative effort between multiple disciplines. These disciplines work at the local, national, and international level to attain a sustainable population.
The public is being deceived into believing propaganda in support for One Health due to perceived threats posed by emerging zoonotic diseases, food- and water-borne diseases and environmental change. In Hegelian Dialectic model a new and integrated effort by multi-disciplinary health professions becomes necessary.
One Health can only achieving their goals with a sustained effort and sufficient funding to bring One Health into routine practice worldwide. The concept of â€˜Oneâ€™ may be good for our trading partner China but it shall be resisted America whose groundwork is founded upon the Constitution.
Goal: Develop, implement and sustain a national strategy for improved public health based on the principles of One Health
Objective 1.1: Form a National Commission for One Health to develop and implement a sustainable national agenda for One Health;
Â· To identify critical needs for integrating the medical, veterinary, and other scientific communities;
Create the problem, integrate human and animal health into ONE system, and then justify the integration with scientific â€˜evidenceâ€™
Â· To set an agenda for research and establish new funding lines for research on emerging diseases;
Set an agenda which validates the merger and sets up novel funding opportunities
Â· To formulate recommendations for policymakers, national and global organizations, governments, and other stakeholders.
In accordance with international harmonization (standardization) synchronize policy from the local level to the international community
Goal: Extend the One Health Initiative to the international community to achieve tangible improvements in global health. Zoonotic diseases threaten the global health of animals and humans.
The United Nations organization believes that it is the only organization who is fully concerned with health worldwide, i.e. the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the World Organization for Animal Health [Office International des Epizooties (OIE)] and therefore it would be reasonable that they, the UN and sub-UN organizations, should make global regulations.
The fear of a globally devastating zoonotic disease has been presented to the public to sway them into forsaking their sovereignty and embracing international rule which promises to bring tangible improvements (security) to health-care system.
The One Health Initiative Task Force Working Group has not even determined guideline details and is currently soliciting stakeholders to help in the preparation of their report and guidelines and yet it wants professionals to buy-into the program without knowing the details of what they are signing on to. Critical thinking is required for all professionals these days as the global net to ensnare occupations into acceptance of foreign belief systems.
Within the One Health philosophy it is notable that that consideration is directed to the concept that plant diseases do not directly affect animals, but economic impacts of such disease would have impacts on animal production. In other words:
Plant disease=Does not affect humans
Economic impact of plant disease=Does impact on animal production
Logic would dictate that:
Plant Disease=Will impact the economy= Resulting in reduced animal production= Which in turn affects humans (if they have reduced food to consume)
Putting One Health into action will require that professionals from across different disciplines have bought into the global agenda that links human, animal, and ecosystem health. These paid contractors will agree that it is in the global best interest and theirs to commit to work in an effort to achieve universal health.
One Health will be increasingly accepted as the viable solution to worldwide health as the connection between public health, veterinary medicine, food safety, zoonotic disease and food â€˜securityâ€™ is made and highlighted by media attention.
10 Minute Citizen: Take a few moments out of your day and let your representative government know that you oppose the One Health Initiative. In addition, contact your state and local physician and veterinarian to educate them on the dangers of universal health-care. The One Health philosophy is gaining momentum as we approach 2010.
Take the initiative to let your voice be heard before you become a casualty in the â€˜War of the Species.
