FDA requires stronger warning label for xanax and similar drugs

The Food and Drug Administration will require stronger warning language on a popular class of drugs that includes Xanax, Klonopin and Ativan.
The Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday that it would require a new warning label on a class of common psychiatric drugs, called benzodiazepines, to better warn the public and health professionals about the serious risks of abuse and addiction.

Benzodiazepines are prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, panic disorders and other health problems. They are also often given before certain medical procedures. They slow brain activity, causing sedation or calming effects.

The drugs are enormously popular. In 2019, according to the agency, roughly 92 million prescriptions for benzodiazepines — such as the highly prescribed Xanax, Klonopin and Ativan — were dispensed in the United States.

In a press statement, Dr. Stephen Hahn, the F.D.A. commissioner, said he was concerned about widespread misuse of the drugs, especially when they are taken with opioid pain relievers, alcohol or other medicines. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that more than 30 percent of opioid overdoses also involve benzodiazepines.

What you need to know about the Act of 1986: Interview with Dr. Andrew Wakefield

1986: The Act documentary
In this interview, Dr. Andrew Wakefield discusses the documentary1 "1986: The Act," which he produced. He also co-wrote and directed Del Bigtree's film "Vaxxed," which discloses the conspiracy within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to withhold information about vaccine harms.

Wakefield is now doing a tour promoting "1986: The Act," which is the best documentary I've ever seen on this topic. It's also one of two full-feature films included in the ticket price for the National Vaccine Information Center's international public conference on vaccination,2 which will be held online October 16 through 18, 2020.

If you haven't signed up for that event yet, I encourage you to do that now. If you want to watch the film now, it's available online at 1986theact.com. A trailer is provided at the end of this article.

The heroic CDC insider William Crews ripped Anthony Fauci and the CDC

dr anthony fauci
A public-affairs specialist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases will retire after revelations that he used a pseudonym online to savage the government response to the covid-19 pandemic — including the work of Anthony Fauci, who heads that agency, an NIAID, reports The Washington Post.

William Crews told NIAID officials he will retire after the Daily Beast revealed he is also the managing editor of the conservative web site RedState.com, where, under the pseudonym "streiff," he has ridiculed the government's activity against the coronavirus outbreak, according to the NIAID spokeswoman.

Under the pseudonym, Crews wrote that Anthony Fauci was a "mask nazi" and described him as the "attention-grubbing and media-whoring Anthony Fauci."

A 2020 study revealed: Unvaccinated children are healthier than vaccinated children

children vaccinated
On May this year, the Children's Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), a "medical and scientific collaborative established to provide research funding for independent studies on causal factors underlying the chronic disease and disability epidemic", produced a report regarding the pilot study which appeared in the Journal of Translational Sciences. The study compared unvaccinated children (261 subjects) to partially or fully vaccinated (405 subjects) homeschooling kids and results concluded that the vaccinated were more likely to develop neuro-developmental disorders (NDD) and allergies. The nearly 700 subjects were "assessed based on their mothers' reports of vaccinations and physician-diagnosed illnesses".

Contrary to what the actual studies say, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) assure the public that vaccines are safe and effective and that all children should get vaccinated. But ironically, there are also instances that they tell the opposite; that they accept they have no real data to back that up, either short-term or long-term.

This isn't difficult to understand as these vaccines contain dangerous adjuvants and heavy metals (aluminum, mercury, etc.), plus formaldehyde and other chemicals and preservatives which usually have unknown health risk. In addition, there are also no real study figuring what could be the long-term effects of importing contaminants of DNA from fetal cells (aborted) to your body, and of various animal DNA and so-called retroviruses. Yet the WHO and other government agencies recommend "50 doses of 14 vaccines by age six, 69 doses of 16 pharmaceutical vaccines containing powerfully immune-altering ingredients by age 18".

Rates of chlamydia and gonorrhea have skyrocketed among young women in the US in recent years. Health experts are concerned infections are now going undiagnosed after testing dropped precipitously as a result of the pandemic.

According to the results of a recent study conducted by Quest Diagnostics, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, there has been a 50 percent spike in positive cases among women aged 25 to 30.

The research examined 17 million laboratory samples from women aged 12 to 30, taken between 2010 and 2017.

While there was a noticeable decline in cases of both chlamydia and gonorrhea among sexually active teenagers from ages 12 to 17, the 18-to-21 category saw a 21 percent increase in sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Objective:Health - The True Cost of the Covid Lockdown

O:H header
The Covid lockdown was ostensibly instituted to both "flatten the curve" and save lives, all evidence showing it succeeded in neither. What it has done instead is increase deaths and have a massively devastating effect on multiple levels of society. The economy, public health, education, the very social fabric of communities - all have been negatively impacted by the misguided (or devious) lockdown.

On this episode of Objective:Health, we talk about the true cost of the Covid lockdown including suicides, domestic violence, mental health, delayed medical procedures and more. Join us for a scintilating conversation on how the "great reset" is leaving us all much worse off.

Brucellosis also goes by the name of Malta fever or Mediterranean fever and can cause symptoms including headaches, muscle pain, fever and fatigue.
Another outbreak in China has sparked a wave of concern among authorities after thousands of people in the northern part of the country tested positive for a bacterial infection. The infection spread among people working in a state-owned biopharmaceutical plant in Lanzhou city, which produces animal vaccines after a leak occurred last year.

Here's all you need to know about Brucellosis outbreak:

Ben Swann: Vaccine study halted over "serious adverse side effects" - UPDATE: AstraZeneca jab showing adverse effects

ben swann reality check
In this episode of Reality Check, host Ben Swann looks into the recent AstraZeneca Covid vaccine study that had to pause the trial due to one participant coming down with serious side effects from the vaccine. The experimental vaccine is drawing scrutiny after a participant in clinical trials was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, a rare neurological condition associated with viral infections in which the spinal cord is inflamed.


Comment: See also: UPDATE 17/09/2020: An AstraZeneca vaccine volunteer developed severe complications after two doses:
A previously healthy 37-year-old woman was hospitalized this month after receiving two injections of the pharmaceutical giant's new vaccine, where it was determined she developed transverse myelitis, a rare neurological ailment caused by inflammation of the spine, according to an internal AstraZeneca safety report obtained by CNN.

Though the report states the woman, who has not been identified by name, had no adverse reaction after her first dose in early June, she began to experience neurological symptoms some two weeks after her second jab in August. During a jog on September 2, the volunteer "had a trip (not fall) with a jolt," the document says, while the next day she reported difficulties walking, weakness in her arms, impaired motor control over her hands, a headache and reduced feeling in her torso. She was hospitalized September 5 and diagnosed with "confirmed transverse myelitis" soon after.

In a previously released "participant information sheet", the company acknowledged that a volunteer had "developed unexplained neurological symptoms", however despite pausing its trial worldwide after the incident, AstraZeneca said the reaction was "considered unlikely to be associated with the vaccine or there was insufficient evidence to say for certain that the illnesses were or were not related to the vaccine." The company has since resumed trials in the UK and Brazil, but they remain on hold in the US until health authorities determine it is safe to continue, according to Moncef Slaoui, chief adviser to the US government's Covid-19 vaccine effort.

Injectable biochip for SARS-CoV-2 detection near FDA approval

injectable biochip
The Silicon Valley company, Profusa,1 in partnership with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),2 has created an injectable biosensor capable of detecting the presence of an infection in your body.3

In early August 2019, months before COVID-19 became a household word, DARPA granted Profusa additional funding "to develop an early identification system to detect disease outbreaks, biological attacks and pandemics up to three weeks earlier than current methods."4

As discussed in "Will New COVID Vaccine Make You Transhuman?" we appear to stand at the doorway of a brave new world in which man is increasingly merged with technology and artificial intelligence, and COVID-19 may well be the key that opens that door, in more ways than one.

Good news! Butter booms to sales not seen since 1965

butter
Consumers have been flocking back to butter.

That's because evidence continues to mount that all dietary fats are not equal. Foods such as unprocessed meats, dark chocolate, and whole fat dairy may be relatively high in saturated fat content, but they show no association with heightened cardiovascular risk or mortality. If that weren't enough, there is now evidence that saturated fat intake may actually be associated with a lower risk of experiencing stroke.

As a result, the average American consumed 6.2 pounds of butter in 2019. The last time butter consumption topped that mark, Lyndon Johnson was the U.S. president.
