    An obesity group determined to destigmatize obesity on behalf of Big Pharma is akin to Big Tobacco funding projects to destigmatize smoking.The world’s top pharmaceutical companies raking record profits from the latest generation of obesity drugs are bankrolling a group behind the contemporary phenomenon of “health at every size.”A new report and database published by Baron Public Affairs last month outlines pharmaceutical sponsorships for trade organizations promoting obesity as a chronic disease warranting health care coverage rather than a preventable symptom of underlying metabolic dysfunction. One such group with funding from major drug manufacturers Novo Nordisk, Eli Lilly, and Boehringer...

  • The Murky Business of Transgender Medicine - Did Texas Children’s Hospital commit fraud to pay for child sex-change procedures?

    City Journal ^ | 18 Jun, 2024 | Christopher F. Rufo
    The “gender-affirming care” business has always had an aura of madness around it. Wielding the authority of white coats and prestigious degrees, doctors have convinced large swaths of the public that some children are “born in the wrong body.” The solution? Stop puberty, prescribe cross-sex hormones, and then, with the stroke of a knife, remove body parts—most commonly breasts, less frequently genitalia. These medical practices use scientific rhetoric to affirm what is, at bottom, an ideological program. And gender activists have been successful enough at capturing the legitimizing institutions—medical societies, regulatory bodies, and teaching hospitals—to repel most challenges to the...

    CV NEWS FEED // The Biden administration sent a pair of FBI agents to the home of a nurse who asserted that staff at her hospital were committing Medicaid fraud in order to subject children to illicit “transgender” procedures. “According to a new whistleblower, doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital [TCH] were willing to falsify medical records and break the law to keep practicing ‘gender-affirming care,’” scholar Christopher Rufo wrote in City Journal Tuesday. This whistleblower, Rufo noted, is Vanessa Sivadge, “a registered nurse at [TCH] who has worked extensively with the hospital’s ‘transgender’ patients.” Sivadge told Rufo that TCH, America’s...

Houston, TX, USA - March 9, 2022: Texas Children's Hospital building in Houston.

    “I believed it was a woman’s place to be sexually harmed by men, that it was natural,” Prisha Mosley told The Washington Post. Mosley was just 14 when a man sexually assaulted her. The rape resulted in a pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage. An already broken girl began to struggle with intense anorexia, anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. The body into which she was born became like an iron maiden, a box spiked with nails that constantly pierced her psyche from all directions. Then, one day, she was introduced to a panacea, the thing that would, like spring rain,...

    Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach announced Monday he is suing pharmaceutical giant Pfizer for misleading Kansas residents about the safety and efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine. During a press conference in Topeka, alongside Deputy Attorney General Fran Oleen and Assistant Attorneys General Kaley Schrader and Melanie Jack, Kobach detailed the allegations lodged against Pfizer. “Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,” said Kobach. The complaint, lodged today in Thomas County District Court, accuses Pfizer of misleading Kansans about the vaccines’ risks, including potential harm to pregnant women...

    Kansas on Monday sued Pfizer, accusing the company of misleading the public about its COVID-19 vaccine by hiding risks while making false claims about its effectiveness. In a lawsuit filed in the District Court of Thomas County, the state said the New York-based drugmaker’s alleged false statements violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. It is seeking unspecified money damages. “Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,” Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, a Republican, said in a statement.

    How Did a Small Group Do This?A very interesting study appeared last week by two researchers looking into the pandemic policy response around the world. They are Drs. Eran Bendavid and Chirag Patel of Stanford and Harvard, respectively. Their ambition was straightforward. They wanted to examine the effects of government policy on the virus. In this ambition, after all, researchers have access to an unprecedented amount of information. We have global data on strategies and stringencies. We have global data on infections and mortality. We can look at it all according to the timeline. We have precise dating of stay-at-home...

    Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) allegedly used a fake phone call to avoid answering questions about hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funding he secured for a Philadelphia LGBTQ center that reportedly “performs sex change surgeries on minors.” The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) shared a video on Wednesday morning of Casey ignoring questions about the funds he secured for the Mazzoni Center as he walked down the street and spoke into his phone.

    A federal judge on Tuesday struck down a 2023 Florida law that blocked gender-affirming care for transgender minors and severely restricted such treatment for adults... “In time, discrimination against transgender individuals will diminish, just as racism and misogyny have diminished,” he continued. "To paraphrase a civil-rights advocate from an earlier time, the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office blasted Hinkle’s ruling, issuing a statement calling it “erroneous,” and vowing to appeal.

    A federal judge in Florida struck down the state’s law banning children from undergoing sex changes, including puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones, if a parent consents to treatment. Senior Judge Robert Hinkle said the law was discriminating against minorities and women. According to Hinkle, Florida went a step too far by banning transgender minors from being sex change hormones and puberty blockers if they obtain parental consent.

    Pfizer’s cholesterol-lowering statin drug Lipitor is one of the most profitable medications of all time. Globally, the lucrative statin market is projected to reach $32 billion by 2032. Yet, for years, there have been published studies reporting that statin drugs lead to profound memory loss and diabetes, and, overall, are entirely worthless. As such, the studies have supplied the basis for reevaluating the guidelines for prescribing statins and theories on cholesterol in general. After all, cholesterol is essential to the human body—if you had none, you would be dead. The studies have likewise questioned why more focus isn’t put on...

What's wrong with that?Everything, if you're part of the global public health mafia and want to avoid questions about the mistakes you made and the lies you told.We all saw Dr. Anthony Fauci squirming last week when he was forced to admit to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee that the social distancing rules — like standing 6 feet apart — on...

    Twice as many children and teenagers are being diagnosed with gender dysphoria today than before the pandemic, a report suggests. Analysts at LexisNexis — which tracks 300million patients — found the number of insurance claims for gender identity care among under-18s spiked 133 percent from 2019 to 2023. It is part of a wider sharp increase in mental health issues among children.

    Believe it or not, there has been a transgender backlash in Europe. Sorry, I meant to say return to sanity on this issue that’s driven the Left over the edge to the point where they’re willing to erase womanhood to accommodate the super minority of people who are suffering from what could be described as mental illness. Before political correctness infested the medical community, the professionals had it right—this is gender dysphoria. The newcomers into the trans community are likely doing it to satisfy the social media craze behind it. Even more pernicious are the gender mutilation surgeries, puberty blockers,...

    Court: mRNA COVID Vaccines Not Vaccines The 9th Circuit Court has ruled that mRNA Covid vaccines, developed by Pfizer and Moderna, are not vaccines, which removes their legal liability protection. This decision has sparked discussions about potential legal actions against these pharmaceutical companies, with some users expressing skepticism about the vaccines' effectiveness and safety. The ruling also raises questions about the classification of these shots and their implications for future litigation and public health strategies.
