    The linked movie is 1.5hrs long. Watched it. Interested to hear opinions on it, but only from those who watch it all. Yes, it's a chunk of time, but my opinion is that regardless of what you believe, it will be valuable to you. Either it will give you new information, will bolster what you already may believe, or it will give you insight to those who believe differently than you.
  • The Real Reasons for Americans' Low Life Expectancy

    01/15/2022 3:26:49 AM PST · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | January 15, 2022 | Sally C. Pipes
    An American baby born today can expect to live 77.3 years, on average -- 1.5 years less than Americans born in 2019, and considerably less than newborns in other Western democracies like the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, where life expectancies at birth exceed 80 years. What causes this discrepancy? It's our lack of socialized medicine, say the folks at the Commonwealth Fund. The left-leaning think tank recently released a study that ranked the United States dead last on a variety of "health care outcomes" compared to 10 other developed countries. The central premise of the report is that foreign...
  • New California Order Now Permits Covid-19 Positive Health Care Workers to Return to Work

    NOQ Report ^ | 01/11/2022 | Jamie Joseph
    Under a new temporary guideline to combat the surge in COVID-19 patients, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will allow health care workers to work if they are positive with COVID-19. The order will run until Feb. 1 and applies only to asymptomatic cases. The new order was issued due to the high spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, which has caused staffing shortages in all sectors including nurses. The spread is beginning to fill capacity at most hospitals. “Given those conditions, [we are] providing temporary flexibility to help hospitals and emergency services providers respond to an unprecedented surge...
  • CORONAVIRUS To Mitigate Racial Inequity, the CDC Wants To Vaccinate Essential Workers Before the Elderly

    Reason ^ | 12-18-2020 | Robby Soave
    Deaths from COVID-19 are overwhelmingly concentrated among the elderly, and thus it would seem obvious that vaccinating older Americans should be a top priority. Yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released guidance suggesting that millions of essential workers should receive the vaccine before many people 65 and older. Part of the reason for this, according to a CDC report, is to mitigate and racial and ethnic "health inequities." Older Americans are disproportionately white, whereas the essential worker category includes a larger percentage of racial minorities and low-income people
  • Early Outpatient COVID Treatment – Why is There Still no Plan?

    American ^ | January 10, 2022 | Brian C. Joondeph, M.D.
    For most infections, early treatment is imperative to prevent late complications. Gangrene infection in the toe must be treated aggressively to prevent losing not only the toe, but also a foot or leg if the infection is inadequately treated and spreads. Those with cardiovascular disease are treated with statins and blood thinners as outpatients to prevent more serious disease and subsequent hospital care for stroke and heart attack with a much higher probability of disability or death. COVID has been with us for almost two years and yet there are still not officially and medical establishment endorsed outpatient treatment protocols...

    New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said the state will expand its COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers to include booster shots, becoming the first state to require boosters for healthcare employees while also signaling that a growing number of institutions are increasingly aiming to mandate them.Hochul, a Democrat, said in a Friday news briefing that state healthcare workers are required to get the extra shots. The state will accept only medical—not religious—exemptions, consistent with previous mandates on COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 vaccines.Under the mandate, healthcare workers will have to get boosters within two weeks of their eligibility. Recently, the Food and...

    Mayo Clinic is dismissing about 700 workers for failing to comply with a vaccine-mandate policy at the Rochester, Minnesota-based health system. Employees had until Monday to either receive their first shots or obtain an exemption for medical or religious reasons, the StarTribune reported. Mayo Clinic said it granted the majority of exemption requests.

    Among the many Covid-related stories emanating from New York (mayor-elect Adams maintaining the vaccine passports, AOC bailing on her locked-down constituents for the free state of Florida, etc.), another alarming piece detailed how health officials are prioritizing Covid testing based on race. Quoting from leaked emails, the New York Post writes: “New York City health officials have been using race to help decide how to allocate precious coronavirus testing resources.” The article goes on to point out how testing centers are purposefully erected in known minority communities while also purposefully avoiding known white communities. At no point was any of...
  • Rhode Island Defends Using COVID-Positive Staff Over Unvaccinated Health Care Workers

    The Rhode Island Department of Health stands by the decision to allow COVID positive health care workers to return to their jobs instead of rehiring unvaccinated workers who were terminated because of their inoculation status. Updated quarantine and isolation guidance from the Rhode Island Department of Health allows employees to continue working at hospitals and nursing homes without restrictions if the facility is so short-staffed it's a safety hazard for patients and residents. The updated guidance sparked some criticism after health care workers were placed on unpaid leave for not getting vaccinated, with critics questioning if lifting the mandate would...

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Faulkner Focus,” Fox News Medical Contributor and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Professor Dr. Marty Makary argued that the biggest failure in the coronavirus pandemic response is the failure to tailor policies based on individual risk, and that “those who have chosen not to get vaccinated and have not had COVID, they do so at their own individual risk. We’ve never seen this level of martial law and paternalism to prevent mild infection in 300 million Americans.”

    At the CVS down the street, the lines are very long to buy home Covid testing kits, $24 a pop, limit four per customer. Everyone seemed to be buying four. Employees cannot restock fast enough. We can speculate why. Are businesses demanding negative tests from the unvaccinated? Is Omicron sweeping the country and people need to confirm? Do we have another round of disease panic happening? It’s most likely that everyone in line has a different answer. My intuition, for what it is worth: this virus is everywhere. Lots of people are sick. Do you have some sense that we’ve...
  • Reflexive Action on PFAS Regulation Could Harm Public Health

    12/23/2021 7:35:30 AM PST · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | December 23, 2021 | Vickie Yates Brown Glisson
    A recent meeting of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science Advisory Board (SAB) to discuss PFAS in drinking water has brought this ongoing public health debate into renewed focus once again. It is part of a broader effort by the Biden Administration and Congress to regulate all PFAS chemicals out of existence and such a de-facto blanket ban could ultimately harm the overall well-being of the American people. Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, or PFAS, are a group of over 5,000 man-made identified fluorinated compounds. Produced since the 1940s, they function as an effective repellant and because of this capability PFAS have been...

    President Joe Biden will give an address to the nation Tuesday afternoon about his administration's plans to combat the latest variant of Wuhan coronavirus. For months Biden has called for Americans who do not want to take the vaccine, including doctors and nurses in medical facilities across the country, to be fired. Many of them have been, causing shortages and a lack of proper care. Here is one example from New York: The emergency department at a Nassau County hospital has temporarily closed due to nursing staff shortages as a result of New York's vaccine mandate.Officials at Mount Sinai South...
  • Biden regime takes new steps to federalize healthcare amid Omicron spread

    It is no secret that the radical left wants to take over healthcare as we know it. For years, they have been pushing universal healthcare, Medicare for all, and any other catchphrase they can come up with. Now, it seems they are willing to use the Omicron wave as a means to implement some of these measures. The White House announced that it will start implementing testing sites around the country for COVID amid the Omicron variant’s spread across the US. The first testing site is set to open in New York City before Christmas according to NBC News. This...

    Rejection used to be common for medical sociologist Thomas LaVeist when he tried to get his research published on the effects of racism on the health of black people. “Now,” said the 60-year-old dean of Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, “I have those same journals asking me to write articles for them.” LaVeist’s experience illustrates the transformation in medical research. While few would dispute that black Americans are more prone to chronic health problems and have shorter life expectancies than whites, the medical community generally sought answers in biology, genetics, and lifestyle. Research, like LaVeist’s, that...

    “We’ve been having tunnel vision” dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ben Carson told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. “Let’s throw the politics out. We could solve this problem pretty quickly,” he stated in an interview that will premiere on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. New York time. “Let’s open this thing up to all the different mechanisms,” said Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest civilian award in the nation—in 2008 for his work. He retired in 2013 and ran for the presidency in 2016, before serving as the secretary of Housing and...

    The U.S. Supreme Court just left in place New York’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers that allows for no religious exemptions. On Monday, the nation’s highest court rejected, by a 6-3 vote, a request by 20 anonymous doctors and nurses, nearly all of whom are Catholic, to grant an injunction against the arguably unlawful mandate. Only Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch voted to grant the injunction. Typical of emergency injunction cases, none of the judges in the majority provided an explanation for their vote, but Gorsuch, joined by Alito, took them to task in a 14-page...

    A federal appeals court on Wednesday reversed a nationwide ban on President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for some 17 million health care workers.The emergency rule will take effect in 26 states due to the ruling from a three-judge panel on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.Two federal judges last month blocked the mandate. The first ruling applied to just 10 states; the second expanded the preliminary injunction across the nation.But the appeals court said it found “little justification” for the second move in the opinion issued by U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump nominee, on Nov. 30.Doughty’s...
