  • BREAKING NEWS Covid-19 Deaths are at record levels in Australia & Official Data shows the Fully Vaccinated account for 4 in every 5 of those deaths since November

    Australia is currently suffering the largest rise in Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths across the country since the pandemic struck in March 2020, despite adopting strict Draconian policies that only allow the vaccinated to participate in society because authorities are wrongly labelling the unvaccinated a danger to public health.But according to official New South Wales Government data, it isn’t the unvaccinated population who are to blame, instead Australia is very much experiencing a pandemic of the vaccinated, with 9 in every 10 cases, and 8 in every 10 hospitalisations and deaths since November 26th 2021 recorded as being among the...

    Any level of drinking can lead to loss of healthy life, the World Heart Federation has said, as it sought to dispel the idea that a daily glass of wine may be good for you. In a new policy briefing, the organisation said it wanted to “challenge the widespread notion” that drinking moderate amounts of alcohol can decrease the risk of heart disease and called for urgent action to tackle the global rise in deaths caused by drinking. Monika Arora, member of WHF’s advocacy committee and co-author of the briefing, said: “The portrayal of alcohol as necessary for a vibrant...
  • Mandates Are About Political Control, Not Health

    Brownstone Institute ^ | January 18, 2022 | Jenin Younes
    Mandates Are About Political Control, Not HealthFor two years, the political class’s ineptitude has been on full display. School shutdowns, business closures, and endless mask mandates have all proven relatively ineffective at stemming the spread of COVID-19 (never mind reducing hospitalizations and deaths), yet politicians continued instituting these harmful and useless measures in a desperate attempt to be perceived as doing something.But over the past month or so, it has become inescapable that sheer incompetence and ignorance can no longer be the sole explanation for two years of bungled policies. Rather, the craven mindset of many of our leaders in...

    WASHINGTON – Hunger strikers for voting rights legislation began to feel the health consequences on the second day of their strike outside the U.S. Capitol, but remained committed. "I'm feeling very tired, cold and hungry, obviously, but committed to being here," Un-PAC co-founder Shana Gallagher told Fox News Digital. Gallagher said she's also "having trouble sleeping" and experiencing "really bad" headaches. West Virginia graduate student Dominic DiChiacchio said "the hunger is starting, but it's still so early, so the morale is still really high."

    What happens when athletes don't follow the COVID rules?As sports slowly re-emerged from the initial COVID-19 pause in 2020, athletes, organizations, and fans had to adjust to a new reality. Public health measures such as hand washing and social distancing were widely established, as transmission of the virus became better understood. Mask mandates were variably instituted and sometimes hotly contested and politicized. The COVID-19 vaccine became a lightning rod for political activism, human rights, religious freedoms, conspiracy theories, and ethical conflicts. The world was hungry for the return of sports, but with COVID-19 still a global threat, the resumption of...

  • Weight loss may repair the brain after stroke in diabetes (Normalizing glucose and weight “significantly improved” late stroke recovery)

    01/10/2022 12:51:46 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 5 replies
    People with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of stroke and slower recovery from it. Now, researchers at Karolinska Institutet have shown that neurological recovery from stroke is significantly improved in mice with obesity and diabetes who achieve weight loss to the extent that glucose metabolism returns to normal levels. The results are published in the scientific journal Cardiovascular Diabetology and may have clinical relevance for stroke rehabilitation in type 2 diabetes. The prevalence of diabetes in the world is expected to rise dramatically to 700 million people in 2045. Stroke is one of the major complications in people...

    As COVID-19 hospitalizations climb into uncharted territory, fueled by the highly contagious omicron variant, Maryland’s medical work force is increasingly diminished by illness and exposure, burnout and turnover. Gov. Larry Hogan has responded with pleas for people to get vaccinated and boosted and wear masks to spare the hospitals. The state opened several testing sites near hospitals so people would stop flooding emergency rooms with nonemergencies. Hogan’s also sending Maryland National Guard troops to hospitals to perform nonmedical tasks and relaxing guardrails on licenses for medical workers, particularly nurses.

    01/07/2022 9:24:03 AM PST · by Red Badger · 5 replies ^ | January 7, 2022 | CARLY CASSELLA
    A new drug with the potential to treat endometriosis-associated pain with very few side effects is getting closer to official approval. Endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory condition and the leading cause of pelvic pain worldwide. With no known cause or cure, many patients have run out of options and are living with chronic and unrelenting symptoms. Safe and effective long-term treatments that can help patients live pain-free lives are desperately needed, and yet to date, very few drugs have been approved for clinical use. Those that have, like elagolix and leuprorelin (aka Orilissa and Lupron), don't work for everyone and...

    America's elite universities are defying science and reason by clinging to cruel COVID policies that we now know cause more harm than good, writes DR. MARTY MAKARY, professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Universities are supposed to be bastions of critical thinking, reason and logic. But the Covid policies they have adopted — policies that have derailed two years of students' education and threaten to upend the upcoming spring semester — have exposed them as nonsensical, anti-scientific and often downright cruel.

    FT. WORTH, TX—While his wife was in bed with a stomach virus all day, local father Todd Fennick had high praise for his ability to care for their four kids without her. “She needs to stay in bed today, and that’s fine, because I think I’m doing a great job, frankly,” said Fennick as he served his children a lunch consisting of paper plates holding a handful of shredded cheese, a Slim Jim, a dollop of cookie butter, and some packets of crackers that he found in the junk drawer.

    Molly agreed with her mother, Beth Davis, that mothers know best. That includes placing a billboard ad in Times Square when it comes to finding a man for daughter Molly. Mom Beth did just that last week by placing a 47-foot-by-25-foot ad at the crossroads of the world, right above Tonic. The ad includes a photo of 30-year-old Molly, a headline that reads “Date my daughter,” and the URL for her dating profile. The 61-year-old from Boston, Massachusetts, had been battling breast cancer since 2004 and was treated with chemotherapy.
  • Researchers identify how red meat increases cardiovascular disease risk (Carnitine to TMA / TMAO converter found)

    Medical Xpress / Cleveland Clinic / Nature Microbiology ^ | Dec. 23, 2021 | Stanley Hazen, MD, PhD
    A study has revealed new insights into how a diet rich in red meat increases risk for cardiovascular disease. In previous studies, Dr. Hazen found that a byproduct that forms when gut bacteria digest certain nutrients abundant in red meat and other animal products—called TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide)—increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. In 2018, Dr. Hazen published results showing that dietary carnitine is converted into TMAO in the gut through a two-step, two microbe process. An intermediary metabolite in this process is a molecule called γBB (gamma-butyrobetaine). According to Dr. Hazen, multiple gut microbes can convert dietary carnitine...

    SNIP Emerging science shows that a human’s microbiome – their constellation of gut microbes – has a far greater effect on health than anyone previously imagined. This enormous ecosystem we host in our bodies includes bacteria, fungi, viruses and more. The collective genetic material in the microbiome performs myriad functions that affect our mood, our immunity, and our physical and mental health. Crappy western diets and antibiotics are depleting our microbiota. And in some cases, a person’s microbiome is disordered enough that it needs a little boost from someone else’s. “We’re showing that you can actually reimagine a food system...
