Increase in syphilis cases in Canada raises questions about underlying factors.
  • Dr. Philip McMillan discusses the paradigm of autoimmunity in understanding disease patterns. 0:10

  • The connection between the increase in syphilis cases and the pandemic is being questioned. 0:28

  • The elephant in the room is referenced as an indirect association that needs to be considered. 0:54

  • Strategies to mitigate the rise in syphilis cases are being explored. 1:17

  • Dr. McMillan emphasizes the importance of understanding and predicting disease trends for the future. 1:39

  • The rise in syphilis cases is particularly concerning among women and infants. 2:23

  • Syphilis rates in Canada have skyrocketed, with a 15-fold increase in cases over the past few years. 2:30

Analysis of rising infectious syphilis cases in Canada and potential factors influencing the trend.
  • Rise in infectious syphilis cases in Canada since 2016, with fluctuations in 2019-2020 and a continued rise in 2021-2022. 3:34

  • Significant increase in cases among both females and males, while stability observed in the gay community. 4:03

  • Exploration of potential factors beyond promiscuity, such as other sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and gonorrhea. 4:36

  • Observation of different patterns in chlamydia and gonorrhea cases compared to syphilis, indicating a unique trend in infectious syphilis. 5:30

  • Consideration of factors specific to Canada and comparison with data from the United States to understand the broader context of the issue. 6:22

Investigation into the rise of syphilis cases and potential connection to elephant-related disease through granulomas and immune system response.
  • Chlamydia cases rose in 2019 but fell in 2021 and 2022, while syphilis cases continued to rise along with congenital syphilis. 6:30

  • The immune system struggles to deal with bacteria causing syphilis, leading to the formation of granulomas. 7:36

  • Granulomas are also present in TB cases, suggesting a potential link between the immune response to both diseases. 8:03

  • Changes in granulomas could potentially explain the observed trends in syphilis cases. 8:43

  • Long COVID may affect regulatory cells, leading to increased inflammation in granulomas. 9:08

  • Different mechanisms are at play in long COVID compared to viral or elephant-related diseases. 9:36

Immune system failure due to granuloma disregulation leading to rise in syphilis and TB cases.
  • Cells becoming regulatory lead to increased inflammation around granuloma, driving symptoms. 9:44

  • Recurring viral infections in vaccinated regions causing immune system failure over time. 10:34

  • Reactivation of old infections due to lymphocytes ineffectiveness leading to rise in syphilis cases. 11:41

  • Corroborated rise in TB cases indicates pattern of disease due to immune system disregulation. 13:01

Increasing cases of diseases related to dysfunctional granulomas due to immune system dysregulation.
  • Rise in diseases connected with granulomas like TB, syphilis, and sarcoidosis. 13:59

  • Importance of understanding principles to prepare for future waves of diseases. 14:26

  • Educational courses on hypertension, abnormal heart physiology, and more to stay informed. 14:33

  • Potential rise in diseases due to immune system dysregulation by recurring viral infections. 15:05

  • Continued disregard of immune system dysregulation poses a risk to everyone. 15:13

  • Urgency in addressing the issue and not ignoring the potential risks. 15:22
