    We are witnessing an explosion of cancer in the United States that is absolutely unprecedented. As you will see below, it is being projected that the number of new cases of cancer in the U.S. will hit a brand new record high this year, and cancer rates are rising particularly rapidly among our young people. There have been so many prominent individuals in the news that have been diagnosed with cancer recently, and so many people that I personally know have also been diagnosed with cancer recently. I am sure that most of you also personally know people that have...

    Despite progress in combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the U.S. since its peak during the COVID-19 pandemic, hospital-acquired AMR infections remain well above pre-pandemic levels, according to a major new study examining AMR before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic in 120 US hospitals. The study was led by Dr. Christina Yek from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and is being presented at this year's ESCMID Global Congress (formerly ECCMID) in Barcelona, Spain (27-30 April). It reveals that AMR rates remain high largely due to the persistence...
  • Boston's migrant shelter luxury: State pays $16 for breakfast, $17 for lunch and $31 for dinner as they live in hotels for free after entering the US illegally

    New documents show the rising public cost of sheltering migrants in Massachusetts, as the state grapples with a strain on its emergency shelter system. The state has 17 contracts totaling $116 million to house migrant families through June, including a no-bid $10 million contract for a company providing meals, CBS News Boston reported, citing documents obtained by the outlet. In some cases, the state is paying hotels $64 per person each day for meals, including $16 for breakfast, $17 for lunch and $31 for dinner. Last August, Massachusetts Governor Maura T. Healey declared a state of emergency, saying the state...
  • Canadians Without Life Threatening Diseases Are Being Encouraged to Consider Suicide | Opinion

    On Jan. 27, Dutch blogger Lauren Hoeve passed away through assisted suicide. After enduring years of chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, ME/CFS), autism, ADHD, and anxiety, she, at the young age of 28, chose euthanasia to escape a life dominated by pain. As a Canadian, I am familiar with the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) program, which has allowed eligible adults to request assisted death services since the federal legislation passed in June 2016. As of this year, the MAID program was also set to allow those with mental illness to choose euthanasia.
  • Why hasn’t the CDC warned about all the diseases that could be brought in because of Joe Biden’s open borders?

    American Thinker ^ | 30 Jan, 2024 | Jack Hellner
    If you’re an American citizen, you get medical tyranny… if you’re an illegal? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is supposed to be an independent agency looking out for the health of the American people. So why hasn’t it protested the endless stream of illegals pouring across the northern and southern borders, allowed to enter without being checked for disease or illness? Are these bureaucrats more interested in protecting their jobs and going along with the political agenda of Joe Biden instead of protecting public health? Eight million people, not counting gotaways, have shown up during Biden’s first...

    The nabobs and panjandrums of the World Economic Forum (WEF) meet up at Davos, Switzerland, the next several days to lay plans for their latest assault on humanity. This year’s theme is “Rebuilding Trust.” Did you just blow your coffee through your nose? The outfit that coordinated the world-wide Covid-19 response (that perhaps birthed the very concept of Covid-19 itself), and especially pushed mRNA vaccines on the credulous global public — this gang of super-wealthy, super-connected, super-important celebrity punks, poohbahs, pricks, and predators wants a cuddle. This Davos crowd — moiling around the opening soirée amid drool-worthy trays of crab...

    The FDNY has ordered all firetruck and ambulance personnel to mask up while rendering patient care due to outbreaks of infectious diseases, The Post has learned. The department-wide directive, issued Friday, comes amid an increase in COVID-19, flu and respiratory virus cases, officials said. Effective immediately, all those who provide pre-hospital emergency treatment in NYC must wear a surgical mask, preferably an N95.

    A Plague Upon Us; the Niagara Falls Smallpox Epidemic of 1914 September 1, 2015 By Michelle Ann Kratts It must have seemed like the end of the world--the Apocalypse--when smallpox came to Niagara Falls, New York, in January of 1914. Luckily, the city pulled through...although it was quite a harrowing journey to the end. It wasn't exactly a topic I wanted to dive into after a refreshing vacation at Saranac Lake, but there it was on my desk: a dusty, decrepit scrapbook filled with tattered news clippings on one subject, smallpox. I try and imagine the person who cut these...

    Migrants who are being turned away from New York City shelters are being given the option to leave at the city’s expense, but dozens told the Daily Caller News Foundation they do not intend to leave. The city recently established a reticketing center for migrants where they can get free, one-way plane tickets to another location. “I already started my asylum process. Besides, as a gay, I don’t want to continue suffering. The life of a gay and immigrant is not easy,” Susej, a Venezuelan migrant, told the DCNF. ...

    New York City Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan announced that illegal immigration has been ushering a new wave of tuberculosis and polio to the city. In a citywide letter to physicians and healthcare administrators last week, Vasan said that the more than 50,000 illegal immigrants that have come to New York City since last year caused a spike in contagious diseases like tuberculosis and polio. “Many people who recently arrived in NYC have lived in or traveled through countries with high rates of TB,” he wrote, as reported by the New York Post. Tuberculosis can be cured with antibiotics and generally...

    Ready for another pandemic? New York City’s health commissioner announced last week that the influx of migrants from the southern border – more than 50,000 to New York City alone in the past year – is delivering contagious diseases, including tuberculosis and polio, to our neighborhoods.The same disease threats are also endangering other migrant destinations, including California, Texas and Florida.In a letter to physicians and health care administrators citywide, Commissioner Ashwan Vasan explained that “many people who recently arrived in NYC have lived in or traveled through countries with high rates of TB.”

    Notwithstanding former President Jimmy Carter's recent statement to the contrary, Undersecretary of State John Bolton's remarks about Cuba's biological weapons capabilities underscore lingering concerns with the rogue island only 90 miles from the United States. Bolton, on May 6, told an audience at the Washington, D.C.-based Heritage Foundation that the U.S. is suspicious about Cuban biomedical laboratories and their ability to transfer biological weapons technology to Iraq, Syria and Libya, all countries that Cuban President Fidel Castro visited last year. Bolton also made remarks, which may be interpreted as a clear signal of hardening State Department policy toward Cuba, faulting...

    A New York man has been brutally shafted to last place on his grandmother’s “ranking board” because of his two new tattoos. Dan LaMorte, 27, took to TikTok on Monday revealing that his unnamed nana ranks her 10 grandchildren from most to least favorite on a display set up in her living room. “This is my grandma’s ranking board,” the grandson stated in the video — which quickly clocked up 1.6 million views on the social media app.

    A 36-year-old patient in Italy returned from holiday in Spain and later presented with a series of symptoms that led doctors to carry out a series of tests. They found he was the first patient so far discovered to have COVID, monkeypox and HIV. Coincidence? Do you remember when I warned you that the MSM was preparing the public for an incoming AIDS outbreak? And what about the 50 million doses C19 vaccines that were recalled after ‘false positives’ in HIV tests? And don’t forget well-known medical reviews acknowledging the apparition of VAIDS in publications… Now, Health authorities have been...

    While U.S. intelligence has been unable in two years to determine for sure if COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab, Congress has decided it no longer wants to take the risk of funding medical research at labs controlled by Beijing or other American adversaries.With little fanfare and in bipartisan fashion, House appropriators quietly amended the 2023 federal budget for health and science agencies on Thursday to ban any funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which U.S. intelligence fears may have been the origin point for the coronavirus pandemic, and other labs like it."None of the funds made available by...

    James Rado, co-creator of the influential hippie-era rock musical Hair, has died at age 90. Publicist Merle Frimark, Rado’s longtime friend, confirmed the news to The New York Times, saying the Broadway legend died on Tuesday in Manhattan from cardio-respiratory arrest. Rado was born in Venice, Calif., but raised in Rochester, N.Y., and Washington, D.C. Following a two-year Navy stint, he moved to New York, studying acting and writing music. The '60s were his breakout decade: In 1963, he landed a part in the Broadway play Marathon ’33 and took a role in The Lion in Winter three years later,...

    Bioterrorism threat said real Oct 17, 2002 12:00 PM, Harry Cline There are 7,000 unaccounted for former Soviet Union biological warfare scientists and technicians in the world today. Before 9/11/01, that fact would be filed away under "So what...just left over Cold War paranoia." Now, though, that fact is cause for considerable concern to Americans, and a panel of experts on bioterrorism and radical environmental groups speaking at the recent California Plant Health Association and CropLife America joint annual convention in Palm Desert, Calif., only served to heighten that concern when they addressed biological warfare issues facing America today.

    Many news stories stress that our ecosystems are under assault by Burmese pythons and Asian carp. This leads people to conclude that it is the less charismatic fauna such as reptiles and fish that are the most threatening of invasive species. Proposed amendments to the Lacey Act that the U.S. House passed Feb. 4 seem to perpetuate this narrative, with a proposed ban on all exotic animal species moving across state lines. (The 122-year-old Lacey Act bans trafficking in illegally taken fish, wildlife, and plants.) But one animal that the International Union for Conservation of Nature considers among the world’s...

    Mysterious new outbreaks of disease are erupting all over the planet. Should we be alarmed? Over the past few years, we have all seen how rapidly an outbreak can spread. A few confirmed cases in one part of the world can become a true global pandemic in just a matter of weeks. And once a pandemic begins, it can be with us indefinitely. After more than two years of fighting COVID, our health authorities are now admitting that it is going to be with us for many years to come. Despite all of our advanced technology, the truth is that...

    Climate change will result in thousands of new viruses spread among animal species by 2070 — and that’s likely to increase the risk of emerging infectious diseases jumping from animals to humans, according to a new study. This is especially true for Africa and Asia, continents that have been hot spots for deadly disease spread from humans to animals or vice versa over the last several decades, including the flu, HIV, Ebola and the coronavirus.
