    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 Hill ^ | 01/10/2023 | Gianna Melillo
    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...

    SINGAPORE: President Halimah Yacob on Monday (Dec 19) suggested that rapists aged 50 or older should not be spared caning, in a Facebook post expressing her dismay at recent cases of children being raped in their own homes. Under Singapore's Penal Code, a convicted rapist can be jailed up to 20 years and fined or caned. Those 50 years old and above cannot be sentenced to caning, but can be imprisoned longer in lieu of corporal punishment.

    Lynne Ingersoll and her cat, Jesse, spent a quiet Thanksgiving Day together in her small bungalow in Blue Island, Ill. A retired librarian, Ms. Ingersoll never married or had children. At 77, she has outlived her parents, three partners, her two closest friends, five dogs and eight cats. When her sister died three years ago, Ms. Ingersoll joined the ranks of older Americans considered “kinless”: without partners or spouses, children or siblings. Covid-19 has largely suspended her occasional get-togethers with friends, too. Now, she said, “my social life consists of doctors and store clerks — that’s a joke, but it’s...

    'With many older people choosing to live in suburban areas or rural areas, some will benefit more...' (Headline USA) On Thursday, the U.S. government is set to announce how big a percentage increase Social Security beneficiaries will see in monthly payments this upcoming year. Some estimates say the boost for more than 65 million Social Security beneficiaries may be as big as 9%. It’s virtually certain to be the largest raise in four decades and will add more strain on the welfare program’s trust fund, which is expected to expire within the next decade, even as younger taxpayers continue to...
  • Study: Treatment of pulmonary fibrosis should focus on the telomeres of the cells that regenerate the lungs (Increase telomeres & reduce fibrosis)

    10/06/2022 8:06:36 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 6 replies
    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis could become the first degenerative disease to be treated through the science of aging. It was known that this disease is associated with the aging process, but its molecular causes were unknown. The Telomeres and Telomerase Group has been working for years to unravel them. In their findings, they have narrowed down exactly which cells give rise to fibrosis when they undergo alterations due to the aging process: alveolar type II pneumocytes, the cells responsible for regenerating lung tissue. "The relevance of this finding is that it indicates which cells in particular should be targeted in any...

    Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 causes severe pathophysiology in vulnerable older populations and appears to be highly pathogenic and more transmissible than SARS-CoV or MERS-CoV [1, 2]. The spike (S) protein appears to be a major pathogenic factor that contributes to the unique pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2. Although the S protein is a surface transmembrane type 1 glycoprotein, it has been predicted to be translocated into the nucleus due to the novel nuclear localization signal (NLS) “PRRARSV”, which is absent from the S protein of other coronaviruses. Indeed, S proteins translocate into the nucleus in SARS-CoV-2-infected cells. To our...
  • FDA to publish study on potential adverse COVID vaccine events in elderly: report

    When federal officials first identified the potential adverse events they said it could be because the vaccine was "given to many high-risk individuals." Researchers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are reportedly planning on publishing a study on four potential adverse effects in elderly people who received the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. "The medical record review and statistical analyses have recently been completed, and the overall study results are currently under internal review at FDA," an agency spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email on Friday. "Release of the study findings is expected later this fall." The FDA in 2021...

    A Florida woman named Tupac Amaru Shakur was arrested for allegedly attacking an elderly man with a baseball bat while he sat on a bench outside of a hospital in her home state. The 34-year-old woman, who shares the exact same name with the iconic California rapper, appeared before a Miami-Dade County judge on Wednesday, WPLG reported — exactly 26 years after the artist was fatally shot in Las Vegas in 1996. Shakur — the accused criminal — allegedly hit the man “several times” with the bat outside of Hialeah Hospital around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, according to an...

    (What's a better way to collapse a medical system than with incurable brain disease.) Further unification of spike protein microvascular disease and tauopathy: TLR-2. I believe I can now fully explain why Tauopathies are occurring in association with SARS-CoV-2 and its Spike Protein. Radiation PERMANENTLY alters NF-kB expression and reprograms endothelial cells resulting in vascular disease. The very same activation also increases the effects of ALL risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. Of course, SARS-CoV-2 is NOT radiation. However the Spike Protein MIMICKS THE EFFECTS OF RADIATION EXACTLY including activation of NF-kB via TLR-2. This also explains why the elderly...

    […]According to Wayne, his podiatrist sees about 80 patients a week. That’s more than enough for strong statistical significance over 20 months (over 5,000 patients) especially with such a large effect size. 95% are vaccinated.Wayne reports that the podiatrist sees unprecedented rates of injury and death since the vaccines rolled out. He estimates that 80% of his vaccinated elderly are worse off and there is no significant change for his unvaccinated patients.This isn’t “bad luck” because the p-values are too small to be just “bad luck.” I used Julia’s HypothesisTests library to calculate it and the chance of this happening...

    A randomized, double blind human clinical trial reveals that supplementation with GlyNAC—a combination of glycine and N-acetylcysteine—improves many age-associated defects in older humans and powerfully promotes healthy aging. This is relevant because until now, there have been no solutions toward improving many of these age-related declines in people. The study shows that older humans taking GlyNAC for 16-weeks improved many characteristic defects of aging. This includes oxidative stress, glutathione deficiency and multiple aging hallmarks affecting mitochondrial dysfunction, mitophagy, inflammation, insulin resistance, endothelial dysfunction, genomic damage, stem cell fatigue and cellular senescence. These were associated with improvements in muscle strength, gait...

    Retirees were tricked out of their savings in a telemarketing scheme involving fake federal agents, authorities say.In one example, officials say a retired Massachusetts nurse was swindled out of over $900,000 in funds from her bank and retirement accounts. She thought her identity had been stolen and that she needed to transfer her money to new accounts — accounts owned by fraudsters pretending to work for agencies like the Social Security Administration and U.S. Department of Justice.

    An elderly couple, who were both widowed, had been going out with each other for a long time. Urged on by their friends, they decided it was finally time to get married. Before the wedding, they went out to dinner and had a long conversation regarding how their marriage might work. They discussed finances, living arrangements and so on. Finally, the old gentleman decided it was time to broach the subject of their physical relationship. 'How do you feel about sex?' he asked, rather tentatively. 'I would like it infrequently' she replied. The old gentleman sat quietly for a moment,...
