    Where are the “success anecdotes” where all-cause mortality dramatically fell in a US geriatric practice after the COVID shots rolled out???All I can find are anecdotes, like that from Deanna Kline, an RN with 35 years of experience who wrote a top-rated book on Amazon about what she observed in the large geriatric practice she works at (thousands of elderly patients).In her practice, they’d regularly see 8 to 10 deaths a year up to and including 2020.In 2022, they saw 36 deaths. In 2023, they saw 48 deaths.They’ve never seen anything like it.The 2022 number chance of happening by chance...

    A bombshell new report has sent shockwaves around the world after an investigation into the high numbers of “Covid deaths” during the pandemic uncovered evidence that tens of thousands of elderly people were actually murdered to boost the mortality rates. The data produced for the report indicated that people were being euthanized using a fatal injection of Midazolam. The cause of their deaths was then listed as “Covid,” indicating that the virus was killing far more elderly people than it was. The explosive data from the report was made public by Australian politician Craig Kelly, the national director of the...
  • Study finds novel macrolide–DEL-1 axis drives bone regeneration in aging individuals (Erythromycin rebuilds bone in older people)

    Researchers have identified a novel macrolide–DEL-1 axis that helps in bone regeneration and new bone formation. This finding may lead to the development of therapeutic agents to treat bone loss disorders. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports teeth. It is usually the result of poor oral hygiene that leads to bacterial infections. Aging may increase susceptibility to periodontitis by altering immune and regenerative functions. Development endothelial locus-1 (DEL-1), crucial for inflammation resolution and tissue repair, declines with age. The low levels of DEL-1 protein also affect bone regeneration and...

    AARP? Or AARPfizer?The lobbying group for older Americans just told its nearly 38 million members to “hustle” for another Covid jab, even if they have already had five boosters.See for yourself. The following question-and-answer column ran in the organization’s December “AARP Bulletin”:AARP is open to anyone 50 or older.The column does not specify a narrower or higher age range for its recommendation.Thus it implies that even a 50-year-old who has not already had six “Covid boosters” needs to “catch up” with another immediately.Keep in mind that someone who has had “five Covid boosters” has actually received seven mRNA jabs -...

    The NYPD on Sunday released photos of four cowardly thugs wanted in the Friday hate-crime beating in Chelsea that left a 72-year-old man with a broken jaw. The attack occurred around 10:15 p.m. at West 17th Street and Ninth Avenue in Manhattan when the suspects converged on the victim shouting anti-LGBTQ slurs, according to police. The four then started to punch and kick the elderly man in the head before running off — leaving him with a broken jaw and cuts to his face and hands. The victim went to a local hospital on his own after the attack.

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday suggested that neither President Joe Biden nor former President Donald Trump were of an appropriate age to lead the nation. Appearing on CBS News, the governor fielded a question as to the ages of Biden, 80, and Trump, 77. Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history while Trump previously held that title. "I think that's absolutely a legitimate concern," the governor said. "The presidency's not a job for someone that's 80 years old, and there's nothing wrong with being 80 obviously. I'm the governor of Florida. I know a lot of people...

    After a heart attack, elderly adults have better odds for improved health and survival if all major heart vessels are cleared, not just the one that caused the heart attack. Because these patients often have other medical conditions and may be frail, doctors frequently opt to open only the "culprit" blood vessel and leave other partially blocked vessels alone. But new research on more than 1,400 patients aged 75 and older found that clearing all these vessels lowers the one-year risk for death, having another heart attack or stroke, or needing another procedure. "What we found in the study is...

Clare Nowland died after police shocked her during an encounter at the Yallambee Lodge care facility, where New South Wales officers found her wandering around with her walker while holding two steak knives. Nowland fell as she convulsed and hit her head, putting her in critical condition before she died.

    Britain’s ageing population poses a long-term threat to the economy and will affect interest rates for decades to come, Andrew Bailey has said. The Governor of the Bank of England identified changing demographics as one of two biggest problems facing the UK and similar countries in the years ahead, along with stagnant productivity since the financial crisis. He suggested that these challenges would have more of an impact in the long run than the war in Ukraine and the Covid crisis, which have combined to drive inflation to its highest level in decades. Setting out the challenge from these two...

    When Ronald Reagan ran for a second term in 1984, he was 73 years old—and, at that time, the oldest presidential candidate in U.S. history. Biden eclipsed that record in 2020, turning 78 just two weeks after the general election. And now he's done it again with the announcement of his bid for a second term. Already the oldest president in U.S. history, Biden would, if reelected, be 82 on Inauguration Day and 86 by the time he leaves office. While Biden's age will no doubt be a factor in the 2024 presidential campaign, history demonstrates that older presidents like...

    An international team has examined the associations of changes in body weight and waist circumference with all-cause and cause-specific mortality. In the paper, the team highlights the startling connection between weight loss and increased risk of death. The researchers used data from a past study looking at aspirin use in 16,703 Australian participants aged 70 and above. They focused on weight recordings, waist circumference measurements and mortality information over time. The cohort consisted of 7,510 men and 9,193 women. All the individuals were without evident cardiovascular disease, dementia, physical disability, or life-limiting chronic illnesses. Using men with stable weight as...

    Pfizer's bivalent Covid booster could increase the risk of a stroke in recipients over age 65, officials report. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials cited vaccine safety database data that showed an increased risk of ischemic stroke in the elderly within three weeks of getting the shot. An ischemic stroke, also known as brain ischemia, is caused by blockages in arteries that carry blood to the brain. The safety concern requires more investigation and 'the totality of the data currently suggests that it is very unlikely that the signal … represents a true clinical risk', CDC wrote in...

    Background Monitoring safety outcomes following COVID-19 vaccination is critical for understanding vaccine safety especially when used in key populations such as elderly persons age 65 years and older who can benefit greatly from vaccination. We present new findings from a nationally representative early warning system that may expand the safety knowledge base to further public trust and inform decision making on vaccine safety by government agencies, healthcare providers, interested stakeholders, and the public. Methods We evaluated 14 outcomes of interest following COVID-19 vaccination using the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) data covering 30,712,101 elderly persons. The CMS...

    The number of seniors visiting emergency rooms in California for cannabis-related issues is growing, according to new research. From 2005 to 2019, the state’s emergency departments saw a 1,808 percent relative increase in the rate of cannabis-related trips among those aged 65 and older. Cannabis is currently legal for both medicinal and recreational use in California. The state became the first in the country to legalize medical marijuana in 1996, while the substance was not approved for recreational use there until November 2016. The study found that cannabis-related emergency department visits in California rose sharply among seniors from 2013 to...
