    Hospitalizing Americans who aren't vaccinated against the coronavirus is leading to billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs, according to a new analysis. Over a recent three-month period, the cost of treating unvaccinated COVID-19 patients around the U.S. amounted to $5.7 billion, the report from the Kaiser Family Foundation and Peterson Center on Healthcare concluded. Drawing on hospital admissions and public health data, the groups based that estimate on the roughly 287,000 hospitalizations among unvaccinated people between June and August. They assumed the cost of their care at $20,000 per person, citing Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data...

    The CEO of a hospital in Texas is cautioning that his facility is facing possible closure following President Biden's announcement last week that healthcare workers will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. If the mandate takes effect, the Brownfield Regional Medical Center will likely lose 20-25% of its staff, CEO Jerry Jasper says. Without those employees, the hospital will likely shut down. The Biden administration has ordered that healthcare workers who staff hospitals and facilities that receive either Medicaid or Medicare funds must receive the vaccine or lose federal funding. "It's huge in our rural community as all the...
  • There is no meaningful use of ivermectin in COVID treatment

    Excerpt from the article - "Early on, limited trials suggested that ivermectin may have activity against SARS-CoV-2 in cells exposed to high concentrations of the drug in laboratory tests. However, more recent trials have shown no benefit. In fact, achieving the plasma concentrations necessary for the antiviral efficacy detected in those studies would require administration of ivermectin doses up to 100-fold higher than those approved for in humans."

    President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden paid an evening visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington Thursday, one week after the ISIS-K terror attack at Kabul’s international airport that killed 13 US service members and injured 20 more. The president’s motorcade arrived at the Bethesda, Md. hospital just before 8 p.m. after making the short drive from the White House. The White House press office put out a one-line statement saying that the Bidens were visiting “wounded warriors.” The Marine Corps Times reported Wednesday that 15 Marines who were injured in the blast outside the...

    1157 comments Suzanne Adams 9 hours ago I am extremely concerned, especially about the blood clotting. It's been obvious to me from the beginning that these vaccines would do this, especially in people who are low in zinc as zinc regulates blood clotting and platelet function. I have a doctor friend who I believe is suffering from this condition right now, having severe headaches and high blood pressure ever since taking the Pfizer shots. This new JAMA article should lift everybody's eyebrows and demand a stop to mandating these so-called vaccines (be sure and study the graphs): Myocarditis and Pericarditis...

    Source: NanoStockkFirst on the list was “Radium Water,” with this explanation: “Before radioactivity was fully understood, naturally occurring radium was lauded for its seemingly otherworldly benefits. Water was kept in radium-laced buckets, and people would drink the tainted liquid to cure everything from arthritis to impotence. Of course, this was an awful idea, and when people started to drop dead from this miracle water, the connection was made. Now, non-radioactive prescription drugs are used to combat arthritis and impotence.” Today, however, we have taken things even further. Not only are we giving perfectly healthy 18-year-old girls full mastectomies. Not only...
  • The Lancet’s reputation continues to decline: Whether its reputation in the medical field will survive its conduct relative to COVID remains questionable

    The Lancet was founded in England in 1823 and was recently considered to be second only to The New England Journal of Medicine when it comes to the magazine’s impact in the medical field. Whether its reputation will survive its conduct relative to COVID remains questionable. In 2020, it led the charge to insist that it was a conspiracy theory to blame the Wuhan lab for COVID. Now, it’s emerged that The Lancet was complicit with China in suppressing early information showing that COVID could be spread by human-to-human transmission and was already moving beyond Wuhan.In early June, Vanity Fair,...

    A recent survey found that only 9% of adults are aware that hospitals are now required to post their prices for services online. As of January 1, 2021, hospitals must list the prices of common health services on their website, under the hospital price transparency rule finalized by the Trump administration. The Kaiser Family Foundation Tracking Poll found that the vast majority of American adults do not know that this requirement exists that would allow them to shop for better prices for medical services. According to Fierce Healthcare, 69% said they are not sure hospitals are supposed to disclose their...

    Researchers have modified standard baking yeast to sense signs of gut inflammation and respond by secreting anti-inflammatory particlesknorre/Depositphotos VIEW 1 IMAGES Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital have engineered yeast used in baking, wine-making and brewing to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The bacteria has been modified to secrete an anti-inflammatory molecule in response to signs of gut inflammation and has proven effective in preclinical tests. Our gut microbiome is increasingly implicated in everything from cancer to neurodegenerative disease but it is still unclear exactly how we can translate these novel findings into clinical treatments. Fecal transplants are probably the...

    New research has discovered that common artificial sweeteners can cause previously healthy gut bacteria to become diseased and invade the gut wall, potentially leading to serious health issues. The study, published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, is the first to show the pathogenic effects of some of the most widely used artificial sweeteners—saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame—on two types of gut bacteria, E. coli (Escherichia coli) and E. faecalis (Enterococcus faecalis). Previous studies have shown that artificial sweeteners can change the number and type of bacteria in the gut, but this new molecular research, led by academics from Anglia...

    Surprisingly, the virus affects only the countries that may have a capacity to control China’s hegemonist ambitions and not those securing aid and assistance from it. It is widely suspected that the COVID-19 virus was manufactured in a laboratory in China and was let loose on the world. It is China which is thus claimed to be largely responsible for the loss of more than 3.3 million lives and causing untold suffering to a far greater number of people. If we look at the list of death by countries, we will see that over half a million died in USA,...

    MDMA may mostly be known as an illicit party drug, but this psychoactive chemical looks to offer therapeutic applications far removed from the highs of the rave scene. In fact, MDMA-assisted therapy could soon become a legal and approved way to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the United States. In the first phase III clinical trial for any psychedelic-assisted therapy, MDMA has shown more potential to help treat PTSD with therapy than possibly any other medicine we've got. After just three sessions, patients who were given MDMA during therapy were 35 percent less likely to meet the diagnosis for...

    President Biden plans to have his annual physical exam “later this year” and will make the results publicly available, the White House said Tuesday, in accordance with typical practice. “The President is planning to have a checkup later this year, and the results will be released to the public,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement that was first reported by The Washington Post. The White House did not provide specific information about when the doctor’s appointment would be scheduled.
  • This Biden Proposal Could Make the US a “Digital Dictatorship”

    05/07/2021 9:41:41 PM PDT · by algore · 14 replies
    President Biden was widely praised for his call to create a “new biomedical research agency” modeled after the US military’s “high-risk, high-reward” Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA. The proposed agency would merge “national security” with “health security” in such as way as to use both physical and mental health “warning signs” to prevent outbreaks of disease or violence before they occur. The Biden administration has asked Congress for $6.5 billion which would be largely guided by Biden’s recently confirmed top science adviser, Eric Lander. Lander, formerly the head of the Silicon Valley–dominated Broad Institute, has been controversial for...

    Most people probably think of epidemiologists as simply doctors who specialize in contagious illness, but that would be only part of the story. Indeed, rather than studying and finding cures for diseases, arguably the most important component of the field is increasingly being viewed as something else entirely - the molding of public behavior. This explains why so many who go into epidemiology hold undergraduate degrees in public health, which focuses on the social and behavioral sciences, instead of the more hard-core sciency stuff studied by their medical doctor peers, like biology or biochemistry.
