The 'science' behind the UK recommended alcohol limit of 14 units a week is predictably awful

© Sebastian Rushworth.com
Before you go and make Christmas more miserable than it need be, it is worth taking the following into consideration.

A committee that was set up to determine safe drinking levels published a report that stated the safe drinking level for men was 28 units of alcohol per week (roughly three bottles of wine) and for women it was 21 units (roughly two).

A member of the committee, Richard Smith, the former editor of the British Medical Journal, later said that they couldn't actually find any scientific evidence to justify these limits but thought they ought to publish something as that was what they had been tasked with so they just "plucked the figure out of the air".

Comment: This is how most public health recommendations work, when the justification isn't monetary in nature.

Some time later, the safe drinking levels per week were reduced to 21 units for men and 14 units for women. Now the safe limits are 14 units per week regardless of whether someone is male or female.

Perhaps this has been done in the name of equality or to make it easier for men to switch genders and become women without worrying about the reduced alcohol limit.

The most charitable explanation for this absurdly low level is that the nanny state knows we are all going to exceed the recommended level regardless of where it's set so they set it low to keep alcohol consumption down. Their intention was to make us feel so guilty we become abstemious instead of rampant alcoholics.

Comment: Pretty much all the science connecting most levels of drinking to any form of ill health is bunk, i.e., there is no connection. Iain McGilchrist summarizes and analyzes this evidence in an appendix in his book The Matter with Things. The main conclusions: there is no known risk, and perhaps even some benefits, associated with responsible drinking.


German Parliament vice president calls for investigation into covid 'vaccine' deaths and damages

covid vaccine
A Chief pathologist and his team discovered that in 30 percent of the people they examined who died shortly after the Covid vaccination, the vaccination was the cause of death.

The Bundestag [German federal parliament] Vice President, Wolfgang Kubicki, is calling for an autopsy for those who died shortly after receiving the Covid vaccine. Kubicki thinks it is essential that every unexplained death that occurs within 14 days after a Covid vaccination is automatically registered as a suspected case with the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI). The Free Democratic Party (FDP) politician says investigating a "link between vaccination, myocarditis, and death is imperative."

In doing so, Kubicki referred to a recently published study by Peter Schirmacher, the chief pathologist at the Heidelberg University Clinic. Schirmacher and his team discovered that in 30 percent of the people they examined who died shortly after the Covid vaccination, that vaccination was the cause of death.

WaPo SLAMMED after finally admitting exercise protects against Covid deaths

exercise covid wapo
On Wednesday, the Washington Post published a new study that claims that exercise, "in almost any amount," reduces the risk of hospitalization or death from Covid.

Following the publishing, the outlet was slammed for previously supporting lockdown measures, which included the closures of places like gyms.

"The study found that exercise, in almost any amount, reduced people's risks for a severe coronavirus infection," the Washington Post wrote of the study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine earlier this month.

Kerryn Phelps and Jackie Stricker-Phelps.
During 2021, Professor Kerryn Phelps wanted mass Covid vaccinations for adults and kids.

Now Phelps has reversed course. She is sounding an urgent alarm about the dangers of the mRNA shots.

Yesterday, Phelps, a former president of the Australian Medical Association, pleaded for an Australian parliamentary committee to examine dangers of the mRNA vaccines. Their risks go far beyond their known dangers of myocarditis, and both she and her wife personally suffered long-term side effects following their Pfizer jabs, she said.

Phelps also warned medical regulators have censored physicians from talking about Covid vaccine injuries. Regulators are afraid honest discussion might cause to the public might lose confidence in the shots, she said.


Covid infection risk increases with number of vaccine doses by up to 300%, study finds

cleveland clinic
The risk of Omicron infection increases dramatically with the number of vaccine doses, by up to 300% for three or more doses, a study has found, in one the most striking illustrations of negative vaccine efficacy yet to emerge.

The study, which is not yet peer-reviewed, gathered data on infection rates among employees of Cleveland Clinic in Ohio from September 12th to December 12th 2022. The primary aim was to study the effectiveness of the new bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, which it found to be just 30% effective against infection during the study period.

A secondary aim was to look at the effectiveness of earlier doses, and the results were, the researchers say, "unexpected". There was an "increased risk of COVID-19 with higher numbers of prior vaccine doses", as illustrated starkly in the cumulative incidence plot below. Those who had three or more doses were around three times or 300% as likely to have a Covid infection than the unvaccinated. This is negative vaccine efficacy of minus-200%.

Comment: Covid vaccination just gets more and more stunningly stupid as time goes on. Not only are they dangerous an ineffective, but they actually have NEGATIVE EFFECTIVENESS. The more shots you get, the worse you are protected. And yet governments continue to strongly encourage vaccination for their citizens.

The fake 'tripledemic' that was 90% RSV and almost zero COVID-19

sick kid stock image
Already by the last week of October 2022, continuing through November and early December, local Rhode Island media were amplifying clinician and public health official warnings about a paediatric respiratory illness 'tripledemic'. The 'tripledemic' that prompted this tocsin of looming calamity in children was an alleged convergence of COVID-19, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).

Serious paediatric illness is best gauged by the actual number of children hospitalised, as opposed to 'respiratory virus test positivity'. The latter is especially misleading because of the unique, ongoing phenomenon of continued mass COVID-19 testing for minimal symptoms. Curiously, almost two months later, I could find no local media follow-up coverage elucidating the feared paediatric 'tripledemic' by this most germane metric: a direct comparison of children hospitalised for COVID-19, influenza or RSV.

With the cooperation of Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) spokesman Joseph Wendelken, and an academic paediatrician at Hasbro Children's Hospital, I can now present those hospitalisation data, per the table below. Given time lags in compilation and transmission, the hospitalisation record only covers all of October, and November 2022.

I have tried sounding the alarm about the vaccines causing cancer relapse but the mainstream media don't want to know

man doctor Angus Dalgleish

Angus Dalgleish
Following my recent communication about my very real concern over the recurrence of cancer in many of my melanoma patients who have been stable for long periods, at least five years and in one case 18 years, other oncologists have contacted me to say they are seeing the same phenomenon.

Seeing the recurrence of these cancers after all this time naturally makes me wonder if there is a common cause? I had previously noted that relapse in stable cancer is often associated with severe long-term stress, such as bankruptcy, divorce, etc. However I found that none of my patients had any such extra stress during this time but they had all had booster vaccines and, indeed, a couple of them noted that they had a very bad reaction to the booster which they did not have to the first two injections.

I then noted that some of these patients were not having a normal pattern of relapse but rather an explosive relapse, with metastases occurring at the same time in several sites. Obviously, I began to wonder whether the booster vaccines could be causing these relapses and were not just coincidence, as my colleagues were willing to suggest.

Why do some people's personalities suddenly change after receiving mRNA injections?

jekyll and hyde
In this video, experts explained how the mRNA "trans"jections not only cause physical damage to some organs but how they also damage the small capillaries in the brain, override the blood-brain barrier and eventually, lead to massive personality changes. They also discussed how the mRNA injections are literally breaking the will of some of those who received them.

The discussion took place during an International Crimes Investigative Committee ("ICIC") session held last month. Attorney Dr. Reiner Fuellmich interviewed Professor Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor Dr. Karina Reiss, Dr. Naomi Wolf and Dr. Peter R. Breggin.

Prof. Bhakdi and his wife Prof. Reiss spoke about the effects of the new mRNA "vaccine" technology which according to the proponents' plan - Mr. Global´s plan - will become the only "vaccine" available in the future and replace conventional vaccines - such as those for measles, the flu etc.


British Olympian Tom Daley's 31-year-old diving coach dies suddenly from 'Sudden Adult Death Syndrome'

British Olympic diver Tom Daley
The death of British Olympic diver Tom Daley's coach, David Jenkins, was revealed on Friday.

On October 9 of last year, David Jenkins, a 31-year-old from Chingford, East London, was found unresponsive in a pool in Antalya, Turkey.

David Jenkins, the Development Lead Coach for England's top diving program Dive London, had spent the day coaching Great Britain's top athletes following their success at the Tokyo Olympics before he died.

"Staff said he did exercises in the water and then died underwater," according to testimony provided at the inquest by Alexei Evangulov, ex-National Performance Director for British Diving.
