Sex between men, not skin contact, is fueling monkeypox, new research suggests

The claim that skin-to-skin contact during sex between men, not intercourse itself, drives most monkeypox transmission is likely backward, a growing group of experts say.

Since the outset of the global monkeypox outbreak in May, public health and infectious disease experts have told the public that the virus is largely transmitting through skin-to-skin contact, in particular during sex between men.

Now, however, an expanding cadre of experts has come to believe that sex between men itself — both anal as well as oral intercourse — is likely the main driver of global monkeypox transmission. The skin contact that comes with sex, these experts say, is probably much less of a risk factor.

Comment: What does that say about this, from CNN?:
First possible case of human-to-dog monkeypox transmission 'not surprising,' WHO says

The first possible case of human-to-dog transmission of monkeypox -- recently reported in two men and their pet in Paris -- had been a theoretical risk up till now, said Dr. Rosamund Lewis, technical lead on the monkeypox response for the World Health Organization.

The men, who live together and are in a non-exclusive relationship, were diagnosed with monkeypox at a hospital in Paris in early June. Twelve days after their symptoms started, their 4-year-old Italian greyhound also started showing symptoms, according to a report published last week in the journal The Lancet.

The dog developed lesions and tested positive for the same type of monkeypox as one of the owners.


Most people infected with Omicron weren't even aware they had it

covid omicron variant
A majority of people who were infected with the Omicron variant didn't even realise they had COVID-19, according to a new study from Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in the U.S. Sky News has the story - but be warned. The journalist who's written this up thinks the finding is a reason we should be particularly worried about Omicron. After all, if people don't know they've got it, they won't take steps to stop themselves infecting others. I would have thought the more obvious take is that if more than half of people infected with Omicron don't know they've got it, we really shouldn't be that worried about it. More here.
The lack of public awareness about being infected means that people can't take steps to prevent themselves transmitting the virus further, which is a major stumbling block for addressing new waves of the pandemic.

"More than one in every two people who were infected with Omicron didn't know they had it," said Dr. Susan Cheng, a corresponding author of the study which is published in JAMA Network Open.

Previous studies have estimated that at least 25% and potentially as many as 80% of people infected with the coronavirus may not experience symptoms, the researchers say.


CDC quietly removes 'claim' that spike protein doesn't 'last long' in the body after COVID vaccine

I began my day savoring another great article by A Midwestern Doctor: What Is The Story Behind Sudden Death Syndromes?

I really love the work this man is doing and highly recommend you consider reading, or at least scanning, the full article above. Many of the weird issues I've seen people in my life develop during the COVID era came into focus.

And not just the COVID era, my whole life leading up to it. The dysfunctional way Medicine has enabled and covered up for poisoning damage is not new, it dates from at least WW2 and even further back.


Massacre: Nearly half of pregnant women in Pfizer trial miscarried

According to Dr. Naomi Wolf, who runs a crowdsourced project to analyze 300,000 Pfizer documents released via a FOIA request, 44 percent of pregnant women who participated in the drug maker's COVID-19 vaccine trial lost their babies.

As first reported by American Greatness, research released by feminist activist and author Dr. Naomi Wolf through her website The Daily Clout indicates that 44 percent of pregnant women in Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine trial lost their babies.

Wolf, who runs a crowd-sourced analysis project of 300,000 pages of Pfizer documents ordered released in a January ruling by U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman of the Northern District of Texas, appeared on Steve Bannon's show "War Room" on Tuesday.

Objective:Health - In The News: CDC funny business, Turbo-Cancer from mRNA vaccines

O:H header
This episode of Objective:Health is another in our ongoing In The News segments.

This week we look at a study out of Thailand that found 1 in 3 teens suffer cardiovascular side effects while 1 in 43 suffer heart inflammation. We also look at what some are calling 'Turbo Cancer,' aggressive cancers that are coming up after receiving mRNA vaccinations. Some are new cancers, some are old cancers that were previously in remission, but they're coming on much stronger than doctors have previously seen. We also talk about the CDC's 'too-little-to-late' Covid policy change that basically shifts all of the US to policies Florida was implementing two years ago.

Join us for all of this and more on this episode of Objective:Health.

Icelandic study shows Covid infection rates rise with number of jabs

covid reinfection
Does anyone still recall the excitement in late 2020 when the vaccines against Covid-19 were finally in sight? The trial results were excellent, promising an end to the pandemic in 2021. The main worry was the availability of the vaccines and of course equitable distribution between countries.

I believed in the narrative myself, even if scientists I know and trust had voiced doubts about the effectiveness against infection I saw no reason not to believe the trial results. Early 2021, when worries arose regarding vaccine sourcing for the Icelandic population I even took part in an attempt to have one of the manufacturers arrange a population-wide trial in Iceland, similar to what Pfizer did in Israel. Today I'm very glad we didn't succeed.

Comment: But will it matter to the medical elite? Of course not.

COVID-19 vaccine boosters could mean billions for drugmakers


One in three vaccinated teenagers suffer cardiovascular side-effects, one in 43 suffer heart inflammation - Study

teen vaccinated
A study has found cardiovascular adverse effects in around a third of teenagers following Pfizer vaccination, and heart inflammation in one in 43, raising fresh concerns about the risks of vaccination for young people.

The preprint study (not yet peer-reviewed) enrolled 314 Thai adolescents aged 13-18, of which 13 were lost to follow up, leaving 301 who were monitored following vaccination. It found cardiovascular effects in 29.24% of participants, including tachycardia, palpitation and, in one participant, myopericarditis. Two participants had suspected pericarditis and four participants had suspected subclinical myocarditis. The most common cardiovascular effects were tachycardia (7.64%), shortness of breath (6.64%), palpitation (4.32%), chest pain (4.32%) and hypertension (3.99%).

The researchers noted that the "clinical presentation of myopericarditis after vaccination was usually mild, with all cases fully recovering within 14 days". However, they added that "although clinical symptoms spontaneously resolved rapidly in all patients, the potential for cardiac fibrosis vaccine-related myocarditis remains unknown".

Comment: 'What to make of' the claim that Covid infection leads to a hundred times increased cardiac injury risk over vaccination is that they're lying to prop up the narrative. And since very few people check references (especially the media), they get away with it.

Female vegetarians at greater risk of hip fracture

A study of more than 26,000 middle-aged UK women reveals those with a vegetarian diet had a 33% higher risk of hip fracture compared to regular meat-eaters.

Research from the University, published in the journal BMC Medicine, investigated the risk of hip fracture in occasional meat-eaters, pescatarians (people who eat fish but not meat) and vegetarians - compared with regular meat-eaters.

Among 26,318 women, 822 hip fracture cases were observed over roughly 20 years - that represented just over 3% of the sample population. After adjustment for factors such as smoking and age, vegetarians were the only diet group with an elevated risk of hip fracture.

This new study is one of very few to compare risk of hip fracture in vegetarians and meat-eaters where the occurrence of hip fracture was confirmed from hospital records.

The scientists stress the need for more research into the exact causes of why vegetarians were at a greater risk of hip fracture.


4% of monkeypox infections caused by the vaccine itself, 7,500 total cases in US, 94% linked to male gay sex

New data published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report and gathered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows 99% of monkeypox cases in the United States are in males, and 94% of cases report recent male-to-male sexual or intimate contact.

These epidemiologic details should guide treatment and vaccine protocols, the authors of the study said. The characteristics were gathered from reported cases of the virus in the United States from May 17 to Jul 22.

"Current findings indicate that community transmission of monkeypox is widespread and is disproportionately affecting gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men; this is consistent with data reported from other countries," the authors said.

Black and Hispanic men are disproportionately represented in cases, with 54% of monkeypox cases occurring in this population. Forty-one percent of cases were in white males.
