People who avoid meat consumption tend to have worse psychological health than those who eat meat, according to new research published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition. The study, which did not draw any conclusions about causation, found that vegetarians/vegans were at a greater risk of depression, anxiety, and self-harm.

"Dietary choices have been a powerful indicator of social class and subsequent mate selection (e.g., whom we marry) since antiquity. Consequently, 'what we eat' and 'how we eat' are integral parts of our identity and directly influence our health via physiological, social, and psychological pathways," explained study author Urska Dobersek, an assistant professor at the University of Southern Indiana.

"Therefore, given the dramatic surge in veganism and mental illness over the past two decades, a rigorous systematic review was a necessary first step in examining the relations between meat and mental health."

Comment: Whether vegan and vegetarian diets cause mental health issues (likely) or people with mental issues tend towards vegetarian and vegan diets, the message is rather clear: Abstaining from meat is for crazy people.

A low-carb strategy for fighting the pandemic's toll

US dietary guidelines myplate
The coronavirus has added a brutal exclamation point to America's pervasive ill health. Americans with obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other diet-related diseases are about three times more likely to suffer worsened outcomes from Covid-19, including death. Had we flattened the still-rising curves of these conditions, it's quite possible that our fight against the virus would today look very different.

To combat this and future pandemics, we need to talk about not only the masks that go over our mouths but the food that goes into them. Next month, an expert committee will issue its advisory report on the federal government's official dietary guidelines for the next five years. First published in 1980, the guidelines are meant to encourage healthy eating, but they have self-evidently failed to stem the ever-rising rates of obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases in the U.S.

Comment: It really isn't that complicated. Those with underlying health conditions are more likely to die from any virulent viral or bacterial infection. Getting people onto a healthy diet is the best way to both decrease underlying health concerns and protect them from acute disease. If people realized this, and started taking proactive measures towards their own health, much of the fear around the coronavirus would be mitigated considerably.

Objective:Health - Covid Backtracking: Readjusting the Coronavirus Narrative

O:H header
It seems that much of the narrative about the coronavirus has stuck with us since the beginning, but lately many mainstream media channels, politicians and governing bodies are putting out information that actually seems... truthful?

Admitting the virus is no more deadly than the flu, saying there's no evidence it can be spread from surfaces (like your groceries), revealing the unliklihood of anyone becoming reinfected and even (gasp!) that the lockdowns did NOT work to slow the virus transmission. It's almost as if the mainstream media have been reading Sott.net!

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look at the slow trickle of truth making its way into the daily headlines. Are people finally going to realize the epic virus that forced them to into their homes, made them lose their jobs and kept them from their loved ones was a total nothingburger?

NY State Bar Association's health law section report calls for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination

vaccin close up
A COVID-19 vaccination should be mandatory for all New Yorkers except those whose doctors exempt them, the Health Law Section of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) recommends in a report issued today.

The report also calls on the state Department of Health (DOH) to adopt uniform standards for allocation of ventilators and personal protective equipment. These standards would be triggered whenever there are insufficient medical supplies, ICU beds or trained health care workers to meet the needs of all patients.

The report recommendations will be debated at a virtual meeting of the association's governing body, the House of Delegates, on June 13.

Could gut microbes be key to solving food allergies?

antiobiotics allergies

New therapeutics are testing whether protective bacteria can dampen harmful immune responses to food
As a child, Cathryn Nagler broke out in hives when she ate eggs. She reacted to penicillin. Working in labs after college, she developed a severe allergy to mice that caused wheezing, swelling and trouble breathing — twice landing her in the emergency room.

Today, Nagler is an immunologist the University of Chicago and is helping to pioneer an emerging research field: studying how bacteria in the gut can be harnessed to help people with food allergies.

It wasn't personal experience with allergies that inspired her interest. Rather, it was an odd observation she made as a doctoral student in the 1980s. She was studying mice whose immune systems go haywire and attack the collagen protein inside their joints, causing severe arthritis. Scientists could jump-start the disease by administering a shot of collagen under the skin. But, curiously, when Nagler later fed the creatures collagen using a tube that snaked down into their stomachs, it had the opposite effect: The mice got better.

Why the public should rebel against forced vaccinations

The debate over the morality and practicality of forced vaccinations has been raging for many years, long before the coronavirus ever hit the US population. With the advent of the pandemic the narrative has shifted to one of "necessity". The media and the majority of governments around the world now act as if mass vaccinations are a given; the "debate is over", as collectivists like to say when they are tired of having to deal with any logical or factual complaints.

In the case of the novel coronavirus there is no vaccine yet; unless of course the virus was engineered or evolved in a lab (as more and more evidence is suggesting), and then perhaps there is one already developed. Typically, vaccines take years to test and produce, and whenever a vaccine is rushed onto the market very bad things tend to happen.

The vaccine debate often revolves around the issue of safety. Is a particular inoculation safe or poisonous? Does it have long term effects that are dangerous? Does it harm children with highly sensitive and underdeveloped body systems? These are valid concerns, but ultimately the fight over vaccines has less to do with medical safety or effectiveness and more to do with individual rights vs government demands.

In other words, the more important questions are: Should social engineering by governments and elites be allowed? Do people have the right to determine how their bodies are medically augmented or manipulated? Does the "security of the majority" take precedence over the civil liberties of the individual? And if so, who gets to determine what freedoms will be taken away?

New Zealand man selling MMS bleach 'cure' for COVID-19 slammed by scientists

mms, miracle mineral supplement
A New Zealand website is advising people with symptoms of coronavirus to drink or inhale a bleach product sold by the Hauraki Plains-based "bishop" of a cult-like American organisation.

But experts warn that the product - chlorine dioxide - is dangerous, should not be taken, and will not cure Covid-19.

Ngatea man Roger Blake, who sells the bleach through his online business NZ Water Purifier Limited, is a 'bishop' of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing.

The 'church' originated in Florida and is not religious. Its sole function is to promote the use of the bleach formula that it calls Miracle Mineral Supplement, or MMS, which its followers also sell. (To become a 'bishop' of the church, one can download a $320 video course, and must provide two video testimonials of people who have been 'treated' with MMS.)

COVID-19 vaccines: Continuing the long history of medical experimentation on children

children vaccine
May 22 was a banner day for the encroaching global vaccine police state, with three announcements from the UK signaling what we can surely also expect on this side of the Atlantic. First, the entities rushing to develop an experimental chimpanzee-derived COVID-19 injection — the conflict-of-interest-ridden Oxford Vaccine Group, Oxford's Jenner Institute and pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca — announced the imminent expansion of their clinical trials to a wider age range, including children aged 5 to 12 years, despite "troubling results" when they administered the vaccine to rhesus monkeys. Endorsing the scale-up of the experiment to more than 30,000 eventual participants, including a trial to evaluate the vaccine in young children, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) immediately awarded a generous "$1.2 billion cash injection" for the UK effort (provided without any input from economically strapped American taxpayers). Then, to cap the day off, a UK Court of Appeal ominously ruled that local authorities can vaccinate children in foster care against their parents' wishes, deploying the argument that "it is in the best interests of children to be immunized unless there is a specific reason for them not to be."

Anyone who has been paying a modicum of attention knows where the vaccine cartel wants this to end up — with a mandated injection that will sneak high-risk gene-altering nanoparticles, Trojan-horse-style, into our children, and eventually, into all of us. However, the use of children as a wedge to implement mandates for adults — the age group most affected by COVID-19 — would deny children the equal protection of law because the vaccine will not be primarily for their benefit.

Bombshell study: Could half the uninfected population already be partially immune?

Could nearly half the population not already infected with SARS-CoV-2 be immune to it from having already contracted other forms of coronavirus in recent years?

That is one implication of a major study conducted by over a dozen researchers from several microbiology and immunology institutions in the U.S.

The purveyors of panic are warning of a second wave of the virus and that even if we are correct in asserting that the general fatality rate is extremely low for most people, it will still result in millions of deaths worldwide if we need 70 percent of the population to get the virus in order to achieve herd immunity. Putting aside the fact that their strategy of lockdown doesn't provide a solution to this hypothetical problem either, even as it kills more people from the collateral damage, there is now promising evidence that more people might already be immune to the virus.

The study is built upon the principle that T cells play a central role in destroying viruses and providing immunity. Not only were these cells discovered in all the blood samples of confirmed recovered COVID-19 patients, but they were also found in 6 of the 11 blood samples from 2015-2018, before those individual donors could possibly have contracted the virus.

Until now, the assumption was that only those with IgG or IgM antibodies can be immune because they are the ones who have already contracted the disease. However, this study examined the cellular defenses that are created in the body and have been proven to serve as a defense against SARS-CoV-2, then discovered them among 40%-60% of their samples not infected with SARS-CoV-2.

First map of tumour microbiomes finds bacteria live in many cancers

More than 60 per cent of pancreatic tumours tested positive for bacterial DNA
The first comprehensive survey of the microorganisms that live inside tumours has found that bacteria reside in those from many different cancer types, but it is unclear whether they contribute to tumour growth.

These bacteria make up part of a tumour's microbiome - the complex community of bacteria, fungi and other microbes that live inside it.

Bacteria have previously been found in tumours in the bowel and other tissues in the body that are routinely exposed to microbes. However, less is known about their presence in tumours from other cancers, like those of the bone, brain and ovary.
