Visitor Health Warning: Elevated Risk of Leptospirosis Infection in New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on June 25, 2008

New Zealand Deadly Infections Syndrome (NZDIS), Health Bulletin # 14. Elevated Risk of Human Leptospirosis Infection June 25, 2008

New Zealand: KEEP OUT!

New Zealand has the highest rates of human leptospirosis in the developed world, according to a new study.

The disease, which is passed to humans through the urine of sheep, cattle, pigs, rodents and deer, attacks the kidneys and liver and can cause death.

Meat workers, inspectors, farmers and veterinarians are among the most common occupationally exposed groups.

A meat worker died from the disease, and an increase in the number of cases of leptospirosis in meat workers in Hawke’s Bay has been reported.

Massey University’s veterinarian Jackie Benschop said in the last 20 years there had been a big push to vaccinate dairy cattle and pigs against leptospirosis, but exposure from deer, beef cattle and sheep was also high.

“Our results add weight to the hypothesis that sheep are an important source of leptospiral infections to humans.” (Source)

This scanning electron micrograph (SEM) depicts a number of Leptospira sp. bacteria atop a 0.1. µm polycarbonate filter. Leptospires are long, thin motile spirochetes that may be free-living or associated with animal hosts and survive well in fresh water, soil, and mud in tropical areas. Organisms are antigenically complex, with over 200 known pathogenic serologic variants. Molecular taxonomic studies at CDC and elsewhere have identified 13 named and 4 unnamed species of pathogenic leptospires. Leptospirosis causes a wide range of symptoms, and some infected persons may have no symptoms at all. Symptoms of leptospirosis include high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, and vomiting, and may include jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or a rash.

Leptospirosis Data

  • In New Zealand meat workers are one of the occupations most at risk of contracting leptospirosis, comprising 30 percent of notifications in 2006
  • Infection can result in severe illness and in some cases death.
  • During 2003-2005 leptospirosis resulted in 207 hospitalisations
  • The majority of cases of leptospirosis are relatively mild and may be misdiagnosed as influenza.
  • The true incidence of leptospirosis is probably many times the reported incidence.
  • Leptospira species have many animal hosts including the main livestock species, wildlife and rodents.
  • An NZ slaughterhouse survey in lambs found 59 percent of lines had one or more carcasses with antibodies to two of the strains of leptospirosis – hardjo-bovis or pomona.
  • Leptospirosis occurs more frequently in humans in NZ than in any other country where it is notifiable.
  • Beef herds exposure to hardjo-bovis and pomona is high with prevalence estimates over 50 percent for serovar hardjo-bovis.
  • A survey of 110 deer farms found hardjo-bovis was present on 61 percent.
  • A slaughter-house survey in lambs found 49 percent of lines had one or more carcasses with titres to either hardjo-bovis, pomona or both
  • There is evidence that clinical disease in sheep and deer is emerging with morbidity and mortality in lambs and weaners. (Source)

The Devil’s Church

Posted by te2ataria on June 11, 2008

The Church: One of Diabolical Organized Crime Institutions in New Zealand [And in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Philippines …]

The following excerpts are from:

Church pays big money to lawyers to fight criminal charges

In 2003-2006, the Catholic order of St John of God Brothers spent up to a million dollars in legal fees, trying to save three of its members being extradited from Australia to face trial in New Zealand on child-sex charges. This is money that could otherwise have been spent on providing rehabilitation for people who have suffered in St John of God (SJOG) institutions in Australia and New Zealand. The SJOG order has specialized in accommodating boys and young men who have intellectual or learning disabilities.

In 2003 a New Zealand court issued a warrant to have the three SJOG members extradited to New Zealand. The three, who were living in Sydney in 2003, were:

  • Brother Rodger William Moloney, then 69;
  • Father Raymond John Garchow, then 57; and
  • Brother William John Lebler, then 83. [Oh, Brother!]

Snail-pace justice

Church lawyers, who were being paid by the St John of God order, appealed to the Australian Federal Court against the extradition order.

On 15 April 2005, Federal Court judge Rodney Madgwick reserved his decision on the appeal. Justice Madgwick said it would take some time for him to prepare a judgment. And His Honour was correct – twelve months later, on 15 April 2006, the judgment had not yet appeared. Nobody had expected that His Honour would take a year. [WTF]

Million-dollar justice

The head of the SJOG order for Australia and New Zealand (Brother Peter Burke) admitted to the media that the SJOG order was paying the men’s legal fees. He would not say how much had been spent. But because the extradition case had been running for a long time it was substantial, he said, and he had sought guidance from Rome [Vatican, the Pope] on the cost. Legal observers estimated that, by the end of 2006, the SJOG order had spent as much as $1,000,000 Australian on this case.

However, Broken Rites questions the propriety of this legal support. One million dollars would be better spent in creating supports to people damaged by sexual abuse. SJOG victims need education, housing and help in maintaining relationships, as they have few social skills. These people need some sort of place they can go to learn the social and vocational skills they need to function in society.

Excerpts from

Man tells of ‘touching’ in dormitory

Moloney, 73, is accused of abusing 11 boys over a six-year period.

He denies 14 charges of inducing an indecent act, 10 of indecent assault, four of sodomy and two of doing an indecent act.

The man said Moloney had told him not to tell anyone about the incidents.

He had not told anyone until a television programme alleging another member of the order, Brother Bernard Kevin McGrath, had abused other boys, prompted him to tell his mother it had also happened to him.

McGrath has already been tried and was jailed for five years in 2006 on 21 charges of sexual offending against children at the school between 1974 and 1977.

The Others on New Zealand’s List of Most Repugnant Organized Crimes Institutions include the establishment, military, government, Human Rights Commission, judiciary, police force, chemical industry, arms industry, tourist industry …

Who’s Afraid of Compound 1080?

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 2. Exposure to Compound 1080 Feb. 10, 2008]

Should You be afraid of 1080?

Sodium fluoroacetate (aka, sodium monofluoroacetate, compound 1080 or 1080)

1080 is a potent metabolic poison that works by interfering with the citric acid cycle, and is used primarily to control mammalian pests, including invasive species. The existence of this chemical was first noted in the Second World War.

Compound 1080 is the most toxic pesticide registered by the World Health Organization, WHO. It is rarely used in the U.S. because it is highly toxic and kills wildlife indiscriminately. The only manufacturer of 1080 left in the U.S. ships most of its production to New Zealand. More information on 1080 …

New Zealand: The nadir of human aspirations

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

The “rabbit hole of morality downunder from which Alice will never return!”

My colleague calls New Zealand “the nadir of human aspirations.” The “rabbit hole of morality downunder from which Alice will never return!” When I read the following I knew instantly what that meant.

“In New Zealand around 800,000 pigs are slaughtered each year. For many pigs, death is the only thing that brings relief from any further suffering. Most pigs are reared indoors under extremely intensive and cruel conditions. They are denied their natural behaviour, suffer illnesses and leg disorders …”

“Pigs raised for slaughter are often kept in dark, barren and overcrowded pens. … these young pigs turn to vices such as aggression and tail-biting other pigs which can lead to cannibalism. Instead of providing better conditions for the animals, farmers reduce tail biting by cutting off part of the piglet’s tail, without the use of anaesthetic.” Read More…
