Coronavirus makes infected cells sprout 'sinister' tentacles to quickly travel inside the body

The new coronavirus' reputation for messing with scientists' assumptions has taken a truly creepy turn.

Researchers exploring the interaction between the coronavirus and its hosts have discovered that when the SARS-CoV-2 virus infects a human cell, it sets off a ghoulish transformation. Obeying instructions from the virus, the newly infected cell sprouts multi-pronged tentacles studded with viral particles.

These disfigured zombie cells appear to be using those streaming filaments, or filopodia, to reach still-healthy neighboring cells. The protuberances appear to bore into the cells' bodies and inject their viral venom directly into those cells' genetic command centers — thus creating another zombie.

COVID19 PCR tests are scientifically meaningless

Though the whole world relies on RT-PCR to "diagnose" Sars-Cov-2 infection, the science is clear they are not fit for purpose

covid pcr test
Lockdowns and hygienic measures around the world are based on numbers of cases and mortality rates created by the so-called SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests used to identify "positive" patients, whereby "positive" is usually equated with "infected."

But looking closely at the facts, the conclusion is that these PCR tests are meaningless as a diagnostic tool to determine an alleged infection by a supposedly new virus called SARS-CoV-2.

Unfounded "Test, test, test,..." mantra

At the media briefing on COVID-19 on March 16, 2020, the WHO Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said:
"We have a simple message for all countries: test, test, test."
The message was spread through headlines around the world, for instance by Reuters and the BBC.

Still on the 3 of May, the moderator of the heute journal — one of the most important news magazines on German television — was passing the mantra of the corona dogma on to his audience with the admonishing words:
"Test, test, test — that is the credo at the moment, and it is the only way to really understand how much the coronavirus is spreading."

Big Agriculture obtains a permanent injunction preventing the state of California from requiring a cancer warning label on glyphosate products sold within the state

california cancer warning
In the case of National Association of Wheat Growers, et al. v. Zeise, et al., filed by several large agricultural associations in the United States District Court, Eastern District of California, to prevent the State of California from requiring under its Proposition 65 a cancer warning on all glyphosate herbicides and other glyphosate products.

Prop 65 provides transparency about glyphosate because experts have confirmed repeatedly that glyphosate is carcinogenic. The Plaintiffs in this lawsuit are Monsanto-aligned interests who have been asserting that their commercial free-speech rights are being infringed, but the People of California have the sovereign right to these voter-approved product label warnings. In late January 2018, the National Health Federation (NHF) and Moms Across America (MAAM) filed a joint Amici Curiae Brief supporting the State of California and its decision to require warning labels on glyphosate products.

Typical human virome includes HIV, hepatitis & many other viruses - 2017 study

virome

Do you know what your virome is? A normal human virome is full of viruses, even ‘scary’ ones like HIV & hepatitis. It’s time to dispel the myth of a killer virus and learn the truth about the humble virus.
Do you know what your virome is? A normal human virome is full of viruses, even 'scary' ones like HIV & hepatitis. It's time to dispel the myth of a killer virus and learn the truth about the humble virus.

Did you know the normal human virome contains a multitude of different viruses, including many strains of coronavirus? And did you know that some of these viruses sound scary - the type people normally associate with disease - even though the person carrying them may be completely healthy and/or asymptomatic? As discussed in previous articles, the word virome (similar to the word microbiome for bacteria) refers to the community of viruses that naturally and usually live within us. Far from causing harm, they form a vital part of our bodies and immune system, existing in symbiosis with us and playing an important role in our healing response. The COVID coronavirus event has exploited people's ignorance over the nature of the virus and the nature of disease. This is an opportunity for us to educate ourselves, to come out of fear, to understand the base assumptions and deceptions behind the COVID propaganda, and to be prepared when the New World Order (NWO) controllers try to pull their next trick in Operation Coronavirus, the 2nd wave.

America's water crisis: Bottled water made by Whole Foods contains high levels of arsenic

starkey water
Bottled water manufactured by Whole Foods and sold in most of its U.S. stores and on Amazon contains potentially harmful levels of arsenic, according to new tests by Consumer Reports.

CR recently tested dozens of bottled water brands and found that Starkey Spring Water, introduced by Whole Foods in 2015, had concerning levels of arsenic, ranging from 9.49 to 9.56 parts per billion (ppb), at least three times the level of every other brand tested. Federal regulations require manufacturers to limit the amount of arsenic, a potentially dangerous heavy metal, in bottled water to 10 ppb.

Consumer Reports' experts believe that level does not adequately protect public health.

Shining a light on unnecessary quarantines: The WHO recommended the opposite of what was needed

lockdown stay at home mask gloves
The latest information is that the lockdown was unnecessary. In fact, not only was it unnecessary but it turns out that locking people in their homes was exactly the wrong thing to do. A study of almost 800 people shows that the higher your vitamin D status the less the coronavirus will affect you. Get enough sun, the data suggests, and you simply cannot die of the coronavirus.

World health authorities really got it wrong and unbelievably, they got the entire human race to listen to them. Recommending the exact opposite of what was needed, to step into the sun everyday and take D3 supplements and even get D injections would have represented intelligent medicine. We do not need a coronavirus vaccine, we already have one except its not a vaccine. If you want to inject something inject vitamin D.

This is the mostly costly mistake in history costing tens of trillions, destroying millions of small and mid-size businesses, and effecting hundreds of millions of lives. It has literally put hunger in bellies so you can start there with your measurements of suffering.

Scientific panel on new dietary guidelines draws criticism from health advocates

Sonny Perdue, the Agriculture Secretary, in the White House last month. Critics fear the panel’s recommendations could be discarded by agency staff who draw up the final guidelines.
Are children who consume prodigious amounts of sugary drinks at higher risk for cardiovascular disease?

Can a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and legumes reduce the risk of hip fractures in older adults?

Should sweetened yogurts be a part of a healthy diet for toddlers making their first foray into solid food?

Comment: Leave it to the New York Times to take a real issue and muddle it with a bunch of identitarian politics and outdated science. The dietary guidelines are highly problematic, but the NYT haven't grasped even 10% of it. At least they threw in a quote from Nina Teicholz, someone with an actual grasp of the problem.

Big Ag groups argue court cannot tell EPA when to ban dicamba

dicamba
The heaviest of Big Ag's heavy hitters told a federal court it should not try to stop GMO cotton and soybean farmers from using illegal dicamba weed killers through the end of July, despite the court's order earlier this month for an immediate ban.

Six national trade associations, all of which have long-standing financial ties to Monsanto and the other companies selling the dicamba products in question, filed a brief on Wednesday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit urging the court not to try to interfere with the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) announcement that farmers could continue to use the dicamba products through July 31.

They also asked the court not to hold the EPA in contempt as has been requested by the groups that won the June 3 court order issuing the ban.

Objective:Health - Why is the World Health Organization Anti-Meat?

O:H header
In 2015 the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) pubished a report declaring red meat as "probably carcinogenic". Everyone assumes they had good reasons for making such a statement, backed up by rigorous scientific research utilizing the best available evidence. Everyone is wrong on that one.

Tim Rees, registered nutritionist, published an article (https://tim-rees.com/why-is-the-world...) that rigorously takes apart the science used to lead to the IARC's conclusions. Spoiler alert: that 'evidence' is super weak. It's difficult not to come to the conclusion that the IARC report was serving an agenda, and it isn't to make the world healthier through solid dietary advice. Rees details much of the history and the behind-the-scenes backroom deals that lead the WHO to declare war on meat.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we highlight some of the main points in Rees' article and give the O:H take.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., on coming COVID vaccines

children's health defense kennedy
As a family that supports freedom from government force and open debate, how can we condone government violence, censorship, and compulsory medical procedures which the Nuremberg Charter and numerous international treaties to which we are signatory emphatically outlaw? As human rights advocates, we must ask ourselves the question: "At what point does one stop blindly believing government and pharmaceutical officials?"

— Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been at the top of international news headlines for several months now. Stay-at-home orders and restrictions on our daily lives, including a ban on attending Catholic Mass and receiving the sacraments, have been issued in the name of protecting the public health. At the same time, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, recently promoted the idea of a mass vaccination campaign for COVID-19 when he said to Chris Wallace on April 5, 2020, on Fox News Sunday, "It is fair to say things won't go back to truly normal until we have a vaccine that we've gotten out to basically the entire world." On April 17, 2020, the chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sent an open letter to Dr. Stephen Hahn, Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, urging the FDA to ensure that vaccines for COVID-19 be developed ethically and free from any connection to the exploitation of abortion victims.

Comment: In all liklihood, the virus did not escape the lab in Wuhan but was brought to China from the US.
