  • 2 arrested after Bully Pit tears out father's throat in Greater Manchester, UK

    05/20/2023 10:15:50 AM PDT · by george76 · 27 replies
    Two were arrested in Greater Manchester after a dog attacked and killed Jonathan Hogg, a 37-year-old father, on Thursday. Police seized 15 dogs, as well as a £37,500, reportedly "the result of criminal proceeds." The dog mauled Hogg in the throat, and though he was taken to a local hospital, he died from his injuries. Hogg leaves behind a son who is only 4-months-old while his daughter has just turned two. One of those arrested is a 24-year-old man who is in custody and faces further questioning, The Daily Mail reports. He faces charges of being in possession in a...
  • What really killed COVID-19 patients: It wasn't a cytokine storm, suggests study (Secondary bacterial pneumonia from ventilators)

    05/07/2023 7:44:16 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 105 replies
    Secondary bacterial infection of the lung (pneumonia) was extremely common in patients with COVID-19, affecting almost half the patients who required support from mechanical ventilation. By applying machine learning to medical record data, scientists found that secondary bacterial pneumonia that does not resolve was a key driver of death in patients with COVID-19. It may even exceed death rates from the viral infection itself. The scientists also found evidence that COVID-19 does not cause a "cytokine storm," so often believed to cause death. "Our study highlights the importance of preventing, looking for and aggressively treating secondary bacterial pneumonia in critically...
  • Is arthritis an inevitable part of growing older and what are the ways to prevent it?

    Painful, stiff or swollen joints are a common complaint among older adults, and for many, may be the first sign of arthritis - but the condition shouldn’t be an inevitable part of growing older as it can be avoided.What was once an easy run may feel tougher to complete. Or perhaps a challenging game of tennis might leave your hip or ankle sore for days. Painful, stiff or swollen joints are a common complaint among older adults — and for many, they’re the first sign of what may feel like an unavoidable diagnosis: Arthritis.

  • Using the right test for the right person to detect bowel cancer

    About 95% of people with bowel cancer survive if it is identified early, so increased screening is vital. Yet more than 60% of those at increased risk are not being screened and almost 20% of people at average risk are having unnecessary colonoscopies. How can screening be improved in the most impactful and cost-effective way? To find out, our team tested a new method of risk-based colorectal cancer screening within a general practice setting. This is where the Colorectal cancer RISk Predictor tool (CRISP) comes in—a web-based risk assessment and decision support tool that improves appropriate screening for bowel cancer...

    A self-proclaimed “time traveler,” who warned of an alien invasion, claims that said extraterrestrials have — wait for it — arrived on Earth yesterday and abducted 8,000 earthlings. A video depicting the supposed dystopian divination has amassed 161,000 views, as well as ridicule from viewers, who wondered if he was 1.21 gigawatts short of a DeLorean. “The Champion has arrived to bring 8,000 people to another planet,” declared Eno Alaric — known as @theradiantimetraveler — in the clip posted on March 23, 2023. The so-called interdimensional voyager, who claims to be from the year 2671, frequently posts his apocalyptic forecasts...
  • American College of Physicians warns of 'urgent threat' posed by highly contagious FUNGUS that has a kill rate of 60% and is growing across the US — sparking Last Of Us fears

    An influential US medical panel is warning about the dangers of a rapidly spreading deadly fungus — just a week after the hit zombie show The Last of Us wrapped up. The American College of Physicians (ACAP) said the rise and spread of antibiotic-resistant cases of Candida auris, also known as C auris, is 'particularly concerning'. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) already described the fungus, which kills up to 60 percent of people it infects, as an 'urgent threat' in 2019. A person is infected after coming into direct contact with a contaminated object. It spreads from...

Spike Protein is a designed viral fragment that has been attached to a coronavirus as a delivery mechanism. This viral fragment causes ARDS, multiple organ failure and death in a very few due to the initial phase of the Syndrome it induces. This is what I have called SPED.

    Patients with Parkinson's disease achieved a significant improvement in their tremors, mobility, and other physical symptoms after having a minimally invasive procedure involving focused ultrasound, according to a new study today published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The clinical trial was led by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) and involved 94 Parkinson's disease patients who were randomly assigned to undergo focused ultrasound to ablate a targeted region on one side of the brain or to have a sham procedure. Nearly 70 percent of patients in the treatment group were considered successful responders to...

    The Federalist ^ | 2/21/23 | Victoria Marshall
    A group of doctors is suing the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services for their various attempts at preventing ivermectin from being prescribed to treat Covid-19. Plaintiffs Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden, and Paul E. Marik argued the FDA tried to prohibit them from prescribing the drug, even though they have successfully used it in treating patients with the coronavirus. “The FDA generally cannot ban particular uses of human drugs once they are otherwise approved and admitted to the market, even if such use differs from the labeling — commonly referred to as...
  • Changes in how the heart produces energy may be the earliest signal of cardiac deterioration (NAD+ source helpful)

    02/14/2023 9:49:33 AM PST · by ConservativeMind · 31 replies
    Heart failure is often identified only when the heart has already deteriorated. This is in large part because the cause is unknown for about 70% of people who experience heart failure. Researchers have discovered that one of the earliest signs of heart failure is a change in how the heart produces energy, with findings offering a potential way to preempt heart failure before the heart begins to deteriorate. Led by Dr. Paul Delgado-Olguín, the research may help explain the diversity of causes underlying heart failure. "We were surprised to find that dysregulation of energy production was the earliest sign of...

    Young blood plasma transfusions for anti-aging are popular with some wealthy elites. There are claims that young blood rejuvenates the body's organs. But turning back the body's clock with transfusions might not need to be done anymore following research from Columbia University in New York that states an anti-inflammatory drug can rejuvenate the body and possibly increase the human lifespan by decades. "An aging blood system, because it's a vector for a lot of proteins, cytokines, and cells, has a lot of bad consequences for the organism," Emmanuelle Passegué, Ph.D., director of the Columbia Stem Cell Initiative, who's been studying...
  • Using a seaweed sugar to trigger immune responses that suppress melanomas (L-fucose, part of fucoidan)

    Immunotherapies have improved outcomes of many patients with cancer, including melanoma. But these therapies work for only a subset of patients. Numerous studies are looking at improving responses, including research focusing on enhancing tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs). TILs are immune cells in tumors that can recognize and attack the cancer cells but often there aren't enough of them or they're unable to harness a strong enough response to durably suppress tumor growth and spread. Researchers, led by Eric Lau, Ph.D., have identified a relatively natural way to increase the numbers and antitumor activities of TILs. Lau's team demonstrates how L-fucose, a...

    [Catholic Caucus] March for Life 2023 -- a very different year On Friday, January 20, the annual March for Life will occur in Washington, D.C. In the past it was a rally of hundreds of thousands of pro-life people to the U.S. Supreme Court, commemorating the January 22, 1973 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. This time it will be a (peaceful) march to the U.S. Capitol.So many things have changed since last year's March for Life. On the positive side, Roe was overturned, with the Dobbs decision. On the negative side, D.C. Cardinal Wilton Gregory banned all traditional...

    A co-worker of mine here in California told me about a friend of his, Dave, who never got the COVID shot but, in late December 2021, got COVID. In his early 50s, remarkably fit, with no comorbidities, and with Christmas just a couple of days away, he figured he could ride out the virus at home. But he only got worse, ending up with symptoms so severe that his wife, fearful for his health, insisted that he go to the hospital after Christmas. With his lungs failing, Dave was put on a ventilator. But once the machine took over his...

    Researchers in Taiwan have added to the increasingly negative picture of the impact the mRNA Covid vaccines have on the hearts of young men. The researchers conducted electrocardiograms (ECGs), which measure the heart rhythm, on 4,928 high schoolers in Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, before and after their second Pfizer shot. Over 90 percent of the students were male. They found 51 students had significant changes in their ECGs after the second Pfizer jab. One of those was diagnosed with myocarditis, and four more had “significant” heart rhythm disturbances. Those included a student with premature ventricular contractions, which can...
