    A recent study by researchers at Yale School of Medicine, New York University Langone Health and Washington University School of Medicine, claims that the ketogenic diet (high fat, low carbohydrate diet) is capable of mitigating clinical outcomes of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in elderly people by improving immune-metabolic functions and reducing inflammation. The study is currently available on the bioRxiv* preprint server.

    Dr. Deborah Birx said she took her Thanksgiving jaunt to Delaware because her parents were so down in the dumps, they “stopped eating and drinking”—a justification ripped by people who said it was her coronavirus restrictions that prevented them from seeing their own dying loved ones. In her interview with Newsy, in which the White House coronavirus task force coordinator revealed she plans to retire over the scandal of breaking her own travel guidance, Birx complained about how her family had been suffering over her own guidelines. “My parents stopped eating and drinking because they were so depressed,”the 64-year-old complained...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard blasted young members of Congress for taking the coronavirus vaccine before American seniors — and declared she wouldn’t receive the vaccine until the elderly could. The Hawaii congresswoman made the remarks in a Monday morning tweet as members of Congress receive the Pfizer drug as part of a “continuity of governance” plan, vaulting them to the front of the line before at-risk seniors and other frontline workers. On Friday, NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx) recorded herself receiving the vaccine live on Instagram and encouraged her millions of followers to ask questions about the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recorded her experience getting the COVID-19 vaccine and shared it with her 8.2 million Instagram followers. The freshman representative of parts of The Bronx and Queens on Friday night shared video of herself in the lead up to the shot — including filling out a questionnaire — the injection itself, as well as how she felt afterwards. “I would would never, ever ask you to do something I wasn’t willing to do myself,” she wrote in the post. The Democratic socialist also answered questions from followers, saying she was experiencing some minor symptoms after the inoculation. “I...

    The policy of terminating the lives of the "hopelessly demented" in the Netherlands has often been difficult when patients objected to being put to death. Now, thanks to the Regional Euthanasia Review Committee (RTE), physicians will be allowed to "sedate patients who are agitated or excessively aggressive in fighting for their lives." Additionally, the RTE has determined that "it is not necessary for the doctor to agree with the patient concerning the time or manner in which euthanasia will be given. Doctors should have the right to use the element of surprise to overwhelm any resistance to the procedure." These...

    An elderly man was struck by a stray bullet while sleeping in his Queens nursing home, police said Tuesday. The near-fatal incident unfolded in Corona around 11:15 p.m. on Saturday night when the 76-year-old woke up bleeding from the right side of his neck and was rushed to Northwell Hospital, according to cops. The man was treated and sent back to Madison York Assisted Living — but the cause of his injury remained a mystery.

    The Frederick County Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of an 80-year-old man and his 77-year-old wife in Sabillasville, authorities announced Friday. First responders were dispatched at about 2 p.m. Friday to the 17000 block of Harbaugh Valley Road for a report of two people in cardiac arrest, according to FCSO spokesman Todd Wivell. The deceased were identified as William Lawrence Moore and Judith Louise Moore, Wivell said. Their bodies were transported to the office of the chief medical examiner for autopsies to determine the cause of death, and the next of kin had been notified. There were no signs...

    UK’s abortion chain Marie Stopes International (MSI) has announced a name change in an effort to distance itself from the eugenicist for whom it was named. According to a press release, Marie Stopes International will now do business under the moniker “MSI Reproductive Choices.” While the organization claimed the name change had been under review for some time, it pointed to “the events of the past year and the critical global conversations about race and diversity” which it said “reinforced to us that changing our name now is the right decision.” The move comes shortly after Planned Parenthood, the largest...

    A whistleblower in Milwaukee, Wisconsin found that every developmentally disabled client she spoke with had their vote stolen for Joe Biden. Every single one. Even the patients who objected to the idea. NewsTalk1130 reported: Susan couldn’t believe what she was hearing. Client after client, developmentally disabled person after developmentally disabled person all told the same story: Their vote was stolen from them. Susan, a disability service coordinator who works with developmentally disabled adults who live in various assisted living facilities and group homes in and around Milwaukee, says every one of her more than 20 clients told her that they...

    Why Did New York Have COVID Policy That Killed Elderly Patients? For all practical purposes, the government directive was essentially an order to spread COVID to people in nursing homes This is a difficult post to write, and a difficult post to read. I’ve thought about it for months, and what I’m going to say must be said. I see no way around the conclusions I’ll draw. So here goes.On March 25, 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York State, the New York State Department of Health, under the signatures of Governor Andrew Cuomo, DOH...

    A social worker in Texas has been charged with 134 counts in an election fraud investigation, officials with the Texas Attorney General's Office said. Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that his Election Fraud Unit and other officials charged Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker in the Mexia State Supported Living Center (SSLC), with 134 felony counts of "purportedly acting as an agent and of election fraud." Brunner allegedly submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent, while purporting to act as their agent. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. "I...

    Picture it: You're ninety-five years old. You put your life on the line and served your country. You bleed red, white and blue and revere the voting process. But your nursing home confiscated your ballot, your voter registration card and won't give them back. If you get upset, they sedate you. That's exactly what's happening in care homes across the country and it stinks to High Heaven. Thankfully, @lemonmaid3 is raising awareness in her Twitter thread. (Sorry for the excerpt but most of this article is Twitter screenshots which I can't include here.)

    A 72-year-old woman was the victim of a violent carjacking in Minneapolis on October 5th, where her alleged attackers stole her purse and vehicle, and later crashed her car during a police pursuit where the suspects died in the crash. The victim was reportedly at a friend’s house at the time, feeding a cat that she was taking care of in her friend’s absence. That’s when three teenage suspects approached the victim and beat her in an effort to take her purse.

    A CORONAVIRUS vaccine may work but will need years to take effect if it does. Even in this best case scenario, Covid-19 will probably never be truly eradicated. With these beliefs, it may seem odd to find Anders Tegnell, the architect of Sweden's lockdownfree approach to dealing with the pandemic, so optimistic. Or to see Stockholm in full swing, with open bars, live music and smiling, unmasked faces. That's because state epidemiologist Mr Tegnell believes that so long as people are sensible, normal life can continue. Health officials say they want to treat the Swedish people as "subjects, not objects"...

    When we become evaluated by group/class, we lose our humanity In making triage decisions involving allocation of scare resources, I suggest the approach needs to be holistic, encompassing ethical constructs legal principles, and public health practice. In more global terms, the question of who should be the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine might be couched in terms of individual rights (including autonomy) versus a collaborative justice, doing “right” for society writ large. Bioethically speaking, I would prefer a more nuanced paradigm as articulated in the UNESCO Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.

    Towards Another Bloodshed in CanadaÂ’s Elderly Homes? Posted on September 26, 2020September 26, 2020 by covexit In the beginning of this fall season, everything points at an increasing number of outbreaks, infections, sick residents and deaths from COVID-19 in CanadaÂ’s elderly homes. Yes, there are measures that have been taken at the level of institutions offering care to the elderly but, with the growing number of outbreaks, these are already proving to be insufficient. The missing aspects in all the policies and measures seen so far are prophylaxis and early treatment. Experiences in France, the US, Australia and elsewhere...
