A Government-ordered review identified 'very significant' waste across the system, saying that too often patients felt unable to question medics who did not look up from their keyboards
A tenth of prescription medicines doled out by GPs are unnecessary, pushing the NHS drugs bill to more than £9 billion, a landmark review has found.

Patients are routinely being harmed by a "culture" of overprescribing, the investigation found, with a fifth of hospital admissions among pensioners caused by adverse effects of medication.

The Government-ordered review identifies "very significant" waste across the system, saying that too often patients felt unable to question medics who did not look up from their keyboards.

It found that an average of 20 prescriptions are now issued per head of population annually, a doubling in two decades. And 15 per cent of patients were found to be taking five or more medicines every day.

The review, led by Dr Keith Ridge, NHS chief pharmacist, said patients should be offered alternatives to drugs, including exercise, talking therapies and social activities.

Objective:Health - Australian Medical Fascism: Coming Soon to Your Country‌

O:H header
Anyone watching any kind of alternative media for the last month and a half knows that Australia has lost it's freakin' mind. The country has gone into full fascist mode, 'because Coronavirus'. The military on the streets, sirens are blaring, the police are getting violent with protesters, strict stay-at-home orders are in full effect with restrictions getting tighter by the day.

Thank God it's only over there... for now. All the signs point to this brand of fascism getting exported to other Western nations in the near future. Keep your eyes on what's going on down under, your country might be next!

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look at the medical fascist state - Australia-style!

Did Pfizer conduct an experiment on an entire country?

Pfizer admits Israel is the great COVID-19 vaccine experiment

According to a recent Israeli news report, which I posted on Twitter1 September 13, 2021, Pfizer admits it's treating Israel as a unique "laboratory" to assess COVID jab effects. Whatever happens in Israel can reliably be expected to happen everywhere else as well, some months later.

In other words, the Israeli population is one giant test group — without a control group, unfortunately — and as noted by the news anchors, the people really should have been informed that they were part of one of the biggest medical experiments in human history.

Pfizer entered into an exclusivity agreement with the Israeli Ministry of Health at the outset, so the only COVID shot available is Pfizer's. As noted by the news anchor, we now realize that the Pfizer shot has a higher risk for heart inflammation among young men than some of the other COVID shots, but Israeli youth have no option but to get the most dangerous one.

FDA meets to decide whether to approve Pfizer booster shots, as company releases stats showing major decline in vaccine efficacy

Gobierno,Argentina,20 millones,
The US Food and Drug Administration will vote on whether to approve booster doses of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine. The vote comes after the drug firm published data showing major decline of potency of its two-shot regimen over time.

The FDA's vaccines committee met on Friday to discuss the approval of booster shots of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine for individuals 16 years and older. After a series of presentations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), academics, and Pfizer representatives, the FDA's 15-member panel will cast their votes on Friday afternoon.

In August, FDA gave Pfizer's existing two-shot regimen its approval, paving the way for the Biden administration to unveil a program of tough new mandates.

More than half of people with long Covid might NOT have 'long Covid' after all

covid test
New research by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests that more than half of those who are suffering 'from' long Covid might not actually have it and could simply be suffering from normal bouts of ill health. The Telegraph has the story.

Comment: The health of the majority of people all over the developed world has been, for the most part, declining by all metrics for at least a decade, and now we have the burden of 17+ months of lockdowns, that also resulted in 'naive' and compromised immune systems, and, to top it all off, the various known and unexpected consequences of multiple, experimental, ineffective, and even harmful, vaccines to add to the burden:

Changes to periods and unexpected vaginal bleeding after having a Covid vaccine should be investigated to reassure women, says a leading immunologist specialising in fertility.

Writing in the BMJ, Dr Victoria Male, from Imperial College London, said the body's immune response was the likely cause, not something in the vaccines.

There is no evidence they have any impact on pregnancy or fertility.

As expected from a flu: World Health Organisation reports drop in new coronavirus infections

WHO said children continued to be less affected by Covid-19 than adults
The UN health agency said every region in the world had seen a fall in Covid-19 cases compared to the previous week.

Some four million coronavirus cases were reported globally last week, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), marking the first major drop in new infections in more than two months. The UN health agency said, in its weekly update, that every region in the world had seen a fall in Covid-19 cases compared to the previous week.

Over recent weeks, there have been about 4.4 million new Covid-19 cases reported.

Although the worldwide number of deaths decreased to about 62,000, with the sharpest decline in Southeast Asia, there was a 7% increase in deaths in Africa.

The highest numbers of cases were seen in the US, Britain, India, Iran and Turkey and the highly contagious Delta variant had now been reported in 180 countries.

WHO also said children and teenagers continued to be less affected by Covid-19 compared to adults, adding that deaths of people aged under 24 due to the disease accounted for less than 0.5% of global deaths. The agency has previously said that children should not be prioritised for Covid-19 vaccinations given the extreme vaccine shortages globally.

Pfizer says Israel data shows third Covid shot restores protection from infection to 95% as it makes case to FDA for boosters

vaccine vaccination jab shot pfizer
A third dose of Pfizer's Covid vaccine six months after a second shot restores protection from infection to 95% in a real-world setting in Israel, according to data submitted by the company to the Food and Drug Administration.

While the effectiveness of the mRNA vaccine wanes over time, a booster shot was shown to elicit an immune response similar to the protection generated after a second dose, Pfizer said in a 52-page presentation released by the agency Wednesday.

Pfizer said data from Israel's Covid vaccination program administering boosters to the entire population show that a third shot "has a reactogenicity profile similar to that seen after receipt of the second primary series dose and restores high levels of protection against Covid-19 outcomes (back to approximately 95% protection)." The data was collected from July 1 through Aug. 30 when the delta variant was surging throughout the country.

Down the memory hole: NIH paper says lasting immunity found after recovery from COVID-19

Colorized scanning electron micrograph of a cell, isolated from a patient sample, that is heavily infected with SARS-CoV-2 virus particles (red).
After people recover from infection with a virus, the immune system retains a memory of it. Immune cells and proteins that circulate in the body can recognize and kill the pathogen if it's encountered again, protecting against disease and reducing illness severity.

This long-term immune protection involves several components. Antibodies — proteins that circulate in the blood — recognize foreign substances like viruses and neutralize them. Different types of T cells help recognize and kill pathogens. B cells make new antibodies when the body needs them.

All of these immune-system components have been found in people who recover from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. But the details of this immune response and how long it lasts after infection have been unclear. Scattered reports of reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 have raised concerns that the immune response to the virus might not be durable.

Comment: The research shows that allowing for the development of natural immunity leads to better protection from all classes of corona virus.

Objective:Health - In The News: Covid Vaccines Don't Work

O:H header
On this episode of Objective:Health we talk about the latest news in Covid vaccine shenanigans. A study has come out showing natural immunity is 13 times stronger than immunity conferred by the Pfizer shot (so why are they pushing everyone to get vaccinated?).

Another data analysis shows the US states that had the best uptake in vaccine compliance also had the greatest numbers of new cases. But that's probably just a coincidence.

And a controversial article from Children's Health Defense talks about a study that showed fully vaccinated healthcare workers carry 251 times the viral load compared to the pre-vaccination era of 2020. While the study's authors say this is a comparison between different variants and can't be said to be because of the vaccines, at the very least this shows that the vaccines aren't working.

We talk about all this and more on this episode, so be sure to join us for our discussion.
