    The amino acid creatine is essential for muscle and brain health, and people commonly use creatine supplements to improve exercise performance and increase muscle mass. Results from a clinical trial indicate that dietary creatine may also benefit individuals experiencing post-COVID-19 fatigue syndrome (also known as long COVID). In the trial, 12 people with post-COVID-19 fatigue syndrome were randomized to take a placebo or 4 grams of creatine monohydrate per day for six months. Creatine intake caused a significant increase in creatine levels in leg muscles and across the brain at both three-month and six-month follow-ups. Creatine supplementation also led to...

    As COVID restrictions end around the country, and Democratic politicians pretend that something about the science has changed instead of their poll numbers being in the dirt, Americans must first demand: apologies.Here, I’ll even go first. I spent much of 2020 and 2021 writing again and again arguing for the opening of schools throughout the country. But in March 2020, I was one of the leading voices urging schools to close.It made no sense to me that my husband had stopped going into the office because of the mysterious new virus but my children continued to go to school.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) - Ivermectin, a drug that treats parasite infestations, is being studied at Vanderbilt as a possible treatment for COVID-19. **SNIP** Vanderbilt is participating in a national study on several treatments. In addition to ivermectin, they're also researching fluticasone, a nose spray for allergies commonly known as Flonase, and fluvoxamine. "It’s one of the older anti-depressants that have been out there a very long time," Goyal said. Fluvoxamine could have an anti-inflammatory effect according to the National Institutes of Health. Beth Winslow is vaccinated, had her booster shot, and still got COVID-19. She decided to enroll in the...

    President Biden on Friday said he’s “very confident” in his chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, despite the release of emails that exposed Fauci’s knowledge of and efforts to tamp down the Wuhan “lab leak” theory to explain the COVID-19 pandemic’s origin. “Yes, I’m very confident in Dr. Fauci,” Biden told reporters as he departed Rehoboth Beach, Del., to return to the White House.

  • ‘The industry is plagued’: Pa. restaurant owners say lifting of COVID-19 restrictions doesn’t mean ‘return to normal’

    Pa. Gov. Tom Wolf chose Memorial Day to lay to rest the last of his COVID-19 restaurant and bar restrictions, with a return to full capacity. But beleaguered restaurant owners said it will be a long time before their industry returns to anything close to 100 percent, following the coronavirus pandemic that made dining and drinking in pubic unthinkable to many. Wolf did the battered industry no favors in selecting a holiday known for backyard barbecues, not crowded bars, to do away with the last of his capacity restrictions. Still, most restaurant owners and managers interviewed Monday by PennLive said...

    The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation is the gold standard for medical data analysis. At least it was. Now, it's being ignored for a very important reason. ==================================================================== There are two types of scientists, including doctors, in the world today. There are those who abide by the true calling of science, which is to try to determine the truth based on information, hypotheses, experimentation, and examination. Then, there are those who have been turned towards the political side of science in which an agenda drives them. In other words, they don’t seek the truth based on the scientific method....

    The research, carried out by professionals from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine's Working Dog Center, found that dogs can be trained to identify saliva and urine samples of patients who tested positive for COVID-19. However, there is a certain concern for training such dogs, because since the ultimate goal would be for them to detect COVID-positive patients in a public setting and not from such samples, such training would be dangerous, as they would need to be trained around people who have tested positive for coronavirus. In fact, the use of sniffer dogs to detect coronavirus in...

    International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach said the organization has agreed to purchase China’s COVID-19 vaccine to administer to willing participants at the Tokyo Olympics this summer and the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022. However, Japan’s athletes won’t be taking the China-made vaccines after the country’s Olympic committee said Japan wasn’t consulted regarding the IOC’s decision. The vaccine isn’t approved for use in Japan. The IOC has said it will pay for Chinese vaccines for the participating teams participating in the Olympic Games but didn’t offer details about the cost or quantity. Bach also said that distribution of China...

    ...Distinguishing between the rational fear of the virus and irrational anxiety can prove difficult, and could cause feelings of agoraphobia. Some amount of anxiety is good because it “keep us safe and it keeps us smart,” Waehler said. “We look both ways when we cross the street because we’re afraid we’re going to get hit by a car. That’s a good thing,” he said..... And with the pandemic, it’s good for people to have some fear of the virus if it means they wear a mask, wash their hands and practice social distancing. “But there is a certain number of...

    Even with more than 500,000 dead worldwide, scientists are struggling to learn how often the virus kills. Here’s why. More than six months into the pandemic, the coronavirus has infected more than 11 million people worldwide, killing more than 525,000. But despite the increasing toll, scientists still do not have a definitive answer to one of the most fundamental questions about the virus: How deadly is it? A firm estimate could help governments predict how many deaths would ensue if the virus spread out of control. The figure, usually called the infection fatality rate, could tell health officials what to...
  • What’s your risk from coronavirus? Lower than we think, new study suggests

    But critics say the study oversimplified answers to one of COVID-19’s most vexing questions Months into the new coronavirus pandemic, researchers are grappling with an urgent question: How much risk do we have of catching COVID-19 — or dying from it — from our chance encounters? The debate has flared as authorities find themselves alternately accused of moving too fast or not fast enough in easing restrictions so more business and activity can resume. Overall, it’s probably less now than many likely believe, given the daily drumbeat of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths, according to new research this month by...
  • America Is Giving Up on the Pandemic

    After months of deserted public spaces and empty roads, Americans have returned to the streets. But they have come not for a joyous reopening to celebrate the country’s victory over the coronavirus. Instead, tens of thousands of people have ventured out to protest the killing of George Floyd by police. Demonstrators have closely gathered all over the country, and in blocks-long crowds in large cities, singing and chanting and demanding justice. Police officers have dealt with them roughly, crowding protesters together, blasting them with lung and eye irritants, and cramming them into paddy wagons and jails. There’s no point in...
  • The CDC's New 'Best Estimate' Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

    05/25/2020 4:15:28 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 126 replies ^ | 5-25-20 | Jacob Sullum
    That rate is much lower than the numbers used in the horrifying projections that shaped the government response to the epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current "best estimate" for the fatality rate among Americans with COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. The CDC also estimates that 35 percent of people infected by the COVID-19 virus never develop symptoms. Those numbers imply that the virus kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected by it—far lower than the infection fatality rates (IFRs) assumed by the alarming projections that drove the initial government response to the...

    New York City’s health commissioner blew off an urgent NYPD request for 500,000 surgical masks as the coronavirus crisis mounted — telling a high-ranking police official that “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” The Post has learned. Dr. Oxiris Barbot made the heartless remark during a brief phone conversation in late March with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday. Monahan asked Barbot for 500,000 masks but she said she could only provide 50,000, the sources said. “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” Barbot said, according to sources....

    The world has not seen this dangerous of a virus since the Spanish flu of 1917. But in today's world, the press and the Democrats use it as a political football. They blame President Trump instead of the ones who are really culpable: the Chinese Communist government. American Thinker interviewed experts on China to get their opinions on who is really to blame. In looking at the Chinese government over the years, should Americans think of them as friendly, adversaries, enemies, or "frenemies"?
