    The FDA has agreed to delete and never republish several social-media posts suggesting that ivermectin, a drug that some doctors used to treat COVID-19, is for animals and not humans. While the FDA still does not approve of using ivermectin to treat COVID, it settled Thursday a lawsuit brought by three doctors who sued it, as well as the Department of Health and Human Services and its secretary, Xavier Becerra, and FDA secretary Robert Califf. All parties have settled. The lawsuit, filed on June 2, 2022, was brought by doctors Mary Talley Bowden, Paul Marik and Robert Apter, each of...

    he United States could save $67 billion each year in health care costs if every person used a primary care provider as their main source of care, according to one estimate. Yet 30% of Americans don't have a primary care doctor due to a shortage of providers, National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). The Association of American Medical Colleges projects we'll be short as many as 124,000 physicians by 2034, more than a third of them primary care providers. According to a recent survey from Athenahealth, 80% of physicians already report talent shortages within their practices.
  • More proof that COVID killed medical ethics

    thousands of elderly COVID patients in the United Kingdom were secretly euthanized in April 2020 ... This disturbing claim came from an investigation directed by Wilson Sy, director, Investment Analytics Research Australia, and ... The alleged euthanasia claim seems unlikely because in the U.K., it is regarded as either manslaughter or murder by the National Health Service ... Having had a career in analytics, I was skeptical. I reviewed the ResearchGate investigation documentation fully expecting to find fake news. Instead, I found that the report was exceptionally well researched and documented, and the claim appears valid. The truth was buried...

    First year medical students at UCLA's medical school were allegedly assigned readings from activists and educators calling for the abolition of borders, according to a medical transparency group. Do No Harm said the readings were assigned in the required course, "Structural Racism and Health Equity." Copies of the documents were shared with National Review on Thursday. In one reading from a scholarly paper entitled, "Beyond border health: Infrastructural violence and the health of border abolition," the authors call for a "no borders system that privileges liberatory solidarity with migrants." The authors blame health disparities among migrants on border enforcement and...

    Ultimately, they want to take down red America – duh. This thread from Nate Hochman is very long, very disturbing, and a total must-read. Yeah, we know, the words ‘MUST-READ-thread’ can sound sorta clickbaity but this time around, it’s just us being honest. It’s easy to take a red state for granted because in a red state you can typically make some general assumptions, especially a red state like South Dakota. Except folks, that’s not always the case. Grab a snack, get comfy, and take a gander at this: A powerful, well-funded coalition is working to bring the transgender movement...

    Americans have lost trust in some of the most important roles in a society, including those in the medical industry, teaching, and especially positions of institutional power. A Gallup poll in Honesty and Ethics conducted at the end of 2023 asked 800 respondents to rate the ethical standards of and their overall trust in a series of professions. "How you would rate the honesty and ethical standards of people in these different fields?" the survey asked. In terms of "very high" trust, all professions but one took a hit compared to previous years. The poll measured the downward trends dating...

    Golden State's lawyers wouldn't accept permanent injunction against AB 2098 or admit it was unconstitutional in hearing to determine possible mootness of lawsuit, plaintiffs' lawyer says. California's medical misinformation law is a zombie, coming back to life against doctors who flout an amorphous "scientific consensus" on COVID-19 in conversations with patients, despite the Democrat-led Legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom killing the law last fall before a federal court could strike it down as unconstitutional. That's the argument made by doctors, medical nonprofits, and independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who previously sued to block the law, AB 2098, in...

    The U.S. Supreme Court granted on Friday an emergency request allowing Idaho to enforce its near-total abortion ban in hospital emergency rooms, which temporarily denies a Biden administration effort to force hospitals to perform abortions. The Court agreed to hear arguments in Idaho v. United States in April 2024 to decide whether the Biden administration’s new “guidance” of a 1986 federal law requires abortions in certain emergencies and thus supersedes Idaho’s law that criminalizes most abortions in the state. Liberty Counsel will file an amicus brief next month in this case. Idaho’s “Defense of Life Act” was enacted in 2020...

    LONDON (AP) – Thousands of doctors walked off the job in Britain on Wednesday, the start of a six-day strike that was set to be the longest in the history of the state-funded National Health Service. Managers said tens of thousands scheduled appointments and operations will be canceled during the walkout across England and Wales by junior doctors, those in the first years of their careers. The doctors, who form the backbone of hospital and clinic care, plan to stay off the job until 7 a.m. on Tuesday. Senior doctors and other medics have had to be drafted in to...

    Dr. Zita Magloire carefully adjusted a soft measuring tape across Kenadie Evans' pregnant belly. Determining a baby's size during a 28-week obstetrical visit is routine. But Magloire, a family physician trained in obstetrics, knows that finding the mother's uterus and, thus, checking the baby, can be tricky for inexperienced doctors. "Sometimes it's, like, off to the side," Magloire said, showing a visiting medical student how to press down firmly and complete the hands-on exam. She moved her finger slightly to calculate the fetus' height: "There she is, right here." Evans smiled and later said Magloire made her "comfortable." The 21-year-old...

    College Station, Texas GHRC — For Dr. Aaron Hultgren, the wake-up call was Hurricane Sandy in 2012, when the young emergency physician returned from an overseas trip and found his hospital without power, its doors closed to the public. Dr. Lakshmi Balasubramanian, an oncologist in Austin, Texas, signed up to study climate medicine after the death of a patient who was trapped in her home during a freak winter storm two years ago. Dr. Paul Charlton, a physician with the Indian Health Service in northwest New Mexico, was motivated by 2023’s summer heat wave, when temperatures cracked 100 degrees Fahrenheit...

    For over a year, I have been writing and commenting on California’s unconstitutional Covid gag law for physicians and other medical professionals. The law allowing the revocation of licenses for “false or misleading information” on Covid-19 was a frontal attack on free speech. Nevertheless, many lawyers supported the law and Gov. Gavin Newsom signed it. Now Newsom has quietly signed the repeal of the law after it was headed for an almost certain rejection by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. All of the supporters of the law seem to be shrugging and moving on after...

    A medical group issued a warning this week about wearing masks for respiratory viruses such as COVID-19, arguing that studies show they don't prevent their spread and instead violate patients' rights to informed consent. "As mask mandates are contrary to the fundamental medical principle of informed consent, all masking mandates currently in place must be rescinded, and no future mandates should be imposed," the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a longtime conservative-aligned medical group, said in a statement, likely responding to recent hospital mask mandates that were reimposed in August. The group made reference to research, including a recent...
