Monkeypox
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.

Comment: WCVB news Boston interviewed some of those monkeypox cases directly attributed to the vaccine:

Civil rights groups, including Al Sharpton-led organization, urge USDA to fix 'dietary racism' in school lunch programs

Twenty-eight civil rights and health care groups announced Tuesday they have requested that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) address "dietary racism" in national school lunch programs, raising concerns to the federal agency about forcing millions of minority children to drink cow's milk without allowing them a healthier alternative.

In a letter to the USDA's Equity Commission, the groups said the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) only incentivizes dairy milk, a policy they called "inherently inequitable and socially unjust" because children of color are more likely to be lactose intolerant — meaning they cannot fully digest sugars in dairy and can suffer from adverse effects after consumption.

The NSLP covers 30 million children in 100,000 schools across the U.S., a program the civil rights groups said children of color are historically overrepresented in.

Comment: They do have a point, but 'dietary racism?' Give us a break.

What would be better overall is if milk wasn't treated as the default and the USDA was forced to come up with nutritional plans for kids schools that don't rely on a food that many people (of any race) can find problematic. But at the end of the day, government issued dietary guidelines are so backward there is little chance of them ever being altered to reflect the actual nutritional needs of growing children. It's not racism that's feeding your kids nutritionally deficient garbage. It's blatant corruption.

Langya henipavirus
The Langya henipavirus, which can be transmitted from animals to humans, has been discovered in China, with 35 human infections reported so far, Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said, adding that the nation would establish a nucleic acid testing method to identify the virus.

A study titled "A Zoonotic Henipavirus in Febrile Patients in China" that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Thursday said that a new henipavirus associated with a fever-causing human illness was identified in China.

The study said an investigation identified 35 patients with acute infection of the Langya henipavirus in China's Shandong and Henan provinces, and that 26 of them were infected with the Langya virus only, with no other pathogens.
The 26 patients developed symptoms including fever (100 percent), fatigue (54 percent), a cough (50 percent), loss of appetite (50 percent), muscle pain (46 percent), nausea (38 percent), headache (35 percent) and vomiting (35 percent).

They also showed a decrease in white blood cells (54 percent), low platelet count (35 percent), liver failure (35 percent) and kidney failure (8 percent).
When asked for confirmation, CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) on Sunday that said according to the study, human-to-human transmission of the virus has not been reported, and that a serological survey of domestic animals found 2 percent of the tested goats and 5 percent of the tested dogs were positive.

Test results from 25 wild animal species suggest that the shrew might be a natural reservoir of the Langya henipavirus, as the virus was found in 27 percent of the shrew subjects, he said.

Objective:Health - Is the Low Serotonin Model of Depression Finally Dying?

O:H header
Last week, University College London researchers did a landmark review "The serotonin theory of depression: a systematic umbrella review of the evidence." The authors said they found 'no convincing evidence' of a link between low serotonin levels and depression.

The popularity of the "chemical imbalance" theory has coincided with a huge increase in the use of antidepressants, one of the pharmaceutical industry's biggest cash cows. But for 30 years there have been many doctors and researchers calling bullshit on the theory; it was a myth created to find a profitable use for SSRIs after they were invented.

'Thousands suffer from side effects of antidepressants, including severe withdrawal effects that can occur when people try to stop them, yet prescription rates continue to rise,' said lead author of the study, Professor Joanna Moncrieff. 'We believe this situation has been driven partly by the false belief that depression is due to a chemical imbalance.'

On this episode of Objective:Health we debunk yet another lie driving our culture: the 'chemical imbalance' theory of depression. Join us as we delve into the murky world of depression and cover some other theories far more plausible than 'chemical imbalance'.

"Open a Public Inquiry into Covid-19 Vaccine Safety": A response to the UK government's response

covid-19 vaccine
This article reproduced with the kind permission of Axel McFarlane

The Government response, shown in italics, has been broken up into paragraphs and followed by our response respectively:

"The Government has commissioned a public inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic and has no plans for a separate inquiry on vaccine safety. The safety of COVID-19 vaccines is monitored by the Medicines Healthcare and Regulatory products Agency (MHRA)."

The government commissioned public inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic would not appear to include any investigation into possible vaccine related causes behind the latest observed data on the various reported Adverse Events, Non-Covid Excess Deaths, the rise in Cardio-Vascular issues or the recent sudden decline in Live Birth Rates. The Terms of Reference[1] for the COVID-19 Public Inquiry do not cover vaccines at all, which highlights the need for a separate inquiry into vaccine safety. The MHRA[2] is "the executive Agency of the Department of Health and Social Care that acts on behalf of the Ministers to protect and promote public health and patient safety, by ensuring that healthcare products meet appropriate standards of safety, quality and efficacy", so as a public body, its effectiveness in carrying out its responsibility to ensure COVID-19 vaccine safety is a legitimate subject for public inquiry.

Comment: Interesting how many of the sources cited by Mssrs. McFarlaine and Baker are no longer available.

Researcher Brian Shilhavy compared VAERS reports of cancer after COVID vaccine injections over the last 20 months with the same query of all FDA-approved vaccines throughout the last 30 years.

A researcher who queried the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) discovered a 10,661.4% increase in cancer reports as a result of experimental COVID-19 gene-base vaccines as compared with all FDA-approved vaccines over the last 30 years.

Brian Shilhavy, who is the editor of Health Impact News, traced his steps in the search providing links to documentation of his various findings.

Having first queried the cases of "the most common cancers [that] had been reported following COVID-19 vaccines," he found "837 cases of cancer, including 88 deaths, 66 permanent disabilities, and 104 life threatening events (Source)."

Comment: Welcome to the new pandemic: vaccine injury edition.

Official UK. data suggests Covid vaccination offers no protection against hospitalisation

People wait to be given a Covid-19 vaccine in Nice, France, April 29, 2021.
The Vaccine Surveillance Report from the UKHSA has for much of its existence been a bit of an oddity - it is very strong on telling everyone that the Covid vaccines are most definitely wonderful, but rather weak on actually providing any surveillance.

So imagine my surprise when in the most recent publication there was a little section tucked away near the end of the document reporting the number of hospitalisations for Covid by vaccination status. These data were gathered from the SARI-watch system, a nationwide surveillance system for England that gathers data on Severe Acute Respiratory Infections - thus these particular data are for those testing positive and who are being treated for a respiratory infection severe enough to warrant hospitalisation (i.e., for not with Covid as a primary diagnosis).

Scientists at Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore have uncovered a mechanism that leads to an advanced form of fatty liver disease -- and it turns out that vitamin B12 and folic acid supplements could reverse this process.

These findings could help people with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, an umbrella term for a range of liver conditions affecting people who drink little to no alcohol, which affects 25 per cent of all adults globally, and four in 10 adults in Singapore.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease involves fat build-up in the liver and is a leading cause of liver transplants worldwide. Its high prevalence is due to its association with diabetes and obesity -- two major public health problems in Singapore and other industrialised countries. When the condition progresses to inflammation and scar tissue formation, it is known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

CDC admits it never monitored VAERS for covid vaccine safety signals

VAERS
In a stunning development, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last week admitted — despite assurances to the contrary — the agency never analyzed the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for safety signals for COVID-19 vaccines.

The admission was revealed in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted by Children's Health Defense (CHD).

In September 2021, I published an article in The Defender in which I used the CDC's published methodology to analyze VAERS for safety signals from COVID-19 vaccines.

The signals were loud and clear, leading me to wonder "why is nobody listening?"

Instead, I should have asked, "Is anybody even looking for them?"

After that article was published, I urged CHD's legal team to submit a FOIA request to the CDC about its VAERS monitoring activities.

Since CDC officials stated publicly that "COVID-19 vaccine safety monitoring is the most robust in U.S. history," I had assumed that at the very least, CDC officials were monitoring VAERS using the methods they described in a briefing document posted on the CDC website in January 2021 (and updated in February 2022, with minor changes).

I was wrong.

Nina Teicholz: The latest study on red meat & heart disease a red herring

red meat TMAO
A new study out of Tufts University led to a multitude of fresh headlines that meat increases the risk of heart disease. It would seem that the danger of meat is now a foregone conclusion, but this paper, like so many others, is marred by significant scientific missteps and financial conflicts of interest, including a drug-development program at the Cleveland Clinic, funded in part by Procter & Gamble.

On scientific grounds alone, the paper is less-than convincing: Its findings are based on a low-quality type of data that, on the whole, can only show associations, not cause-and-effect relationships. What's more, the associations reported are tiny: 1.15 for unprocessed red meat, 1.22 for total meat, and 1.18 for all animal foods. These numbers are close to 1 (= zero risk), and they're all well below the threshold for ruling out other possible explanations for the observed results.

Further, the study blames a metabolite called TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide) for red meat's apparent harms, but the food that most boosts TMAO is not red meat, but fish!

Comment: The fact that The ScienceTM has so quickly switched from the saturated-fat-and-cholesterol-clog-your-arteries myth to the TMAO myth should make the real game all-too obvious. They're not interested in the truth. Their entire goal is to get you to stop eating meat.
