Lockdowns & the hysteria over 'hyper hygiene' could have long-term health impacts - study

A paper published in January raised the possibility that the pandemic could make some people more susceptible to chronic conditions and diseases, including asthma and obesity.
The good news is that frequent hand-washing, masks and physical distancing work. Falling daily COVID-19 case counts in Ontario and across Canada testify to that.


Comment: Masks have little to no effect on the spread of viruses; and can excessive handwashing and distancing be said to 'work', when on the very next line the author admits that it actually makes one more susceptible to illness?


The bad news? Being hyper vigilant about hygiene could have some serious health consequences down the road.

Comment: In addition, since we now know that the central nervous system and our immune system are directly connected, the physiological impact of being propagandized with baseless fearmongering for nearly a year will only serve to make people even more susceptible to illness.

Major nutrition study aims to learn which diet best suits your genes and gut

A massive new National Institutes of Health precision nutrition study will give some volunteers controlled meals, like this one being prepared by a dietician at the agency’s metabolic research kitchen.
There's no one-size-fits-all diet. If you want to avoid spiking your blood sugar with a snack, a banana may seem like a better choice than a sugary cookie. But some people in a 2015 study of 800 Israeli volunteers got their biggest blood sugar spike from bananas or bread instead of from sugar-laden baked goods. And as nutrition scientist Elizabeth Parks of the University of Missouri, Columbia, notes, "We all know people who lose weight easily, and others who don't."

Now, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) is making a major push to understand these individual differences. Last week, the agency announced what it calls the largest study yet to probe "precision nutrition," a $156 million, 5-year effort to examine how 10,000 Americans process foods by collecting data ranging from continuous blood glucose levels to microbes in a person's gut.

Sputnik V vaccine
In a major breakthrough for Russia's Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine, the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet has published preliminary Phase III trial results showing it is highly effective - notably, for all age groups.


Comment: This is important because the experimental and unproven Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have little to no data on the efficacy for the at risk age groups.


Data from 19,866 volunteers - 4,902 of whom were in the placebo group - showed that Sputnik V had an overall efficacy of 91.6 percent, rising to 91.8 percent among the group of 2,144 volunteers over the age of 60, according to the interim results of the Phase III clinical trial published in the Lancet on Tuesday.

At the end of the study, there were 62 confirmed Covid-19 cases in the placebo group and only 16 in the vaccine group. Sputnik V proved to be 100 percent effective in preventing the development of severe cases.

Comment: While the vast majority don't need a vaccine of any kind against the harmless coronavirus - with their innate immune system being much more reliable, effective, and safe - check out the following article for insight into why the West is so dead set against Russia's offering, see: The Inanity of RNA Vaccines For COVID-19

Objective:Health - Protecting Yourself Against Vaccine Side Effects

O:H header
We've discussed vaccines a number of times on this show. We've also discussed the new mRNA vaccines a number of times. Our own strategy has always been to avoid these vaccines as long as it is humanly possible.

But what if its not possible? The PowersThatBe™ are making it increasingly difficult to avoid the vaccine and still lead a (relatively) normal life, and they're only getting started with their restrictions. We don't know what's coming, but we may be looking at a future where the shot, at least for some, is unavoidable.

Today, regular Objective:Health host Elliot Overton shares with you a protocol against possible vaccination side-effects based on his deep research into the mechanisms behind the shot and what it's doing in our bodies on a micro-biological level. Because the vaccines are so new, this is all theoretical, but it may represent our best defense against side-effects in a situation where the shot cannot be avoided.

Join us for this incredibly valuable presentation of information!

A miracle! Only 23 Americans tested positive for flu last week compared to 14,657 cases reported last year at same time

flu cases mysteriously disappear
Do you ever get the feeling you're being lied to?

450,390 people have now died WITH the coronavirus in the US this year.

That number includes poisonings, shootings, homicides and hospice deaths.


The Gateway Pundit reported news from the CDC in August that only 6% of all deaths in the US classified as Coronavirus deaths actually died from the China Coronavirus exclusively.

Comment: Yeah right! Flu shots and social distancing has made the flu all but disappear? For the first time in known history? Not bloody likely!

The 'disappearance' of 'the flu' is of course down to the fact that 'the science' is solely focused on finding Covid cases. Nothing more. What they don't track, 'doesn't exist'.

Shapeshifting enables some bacteria to grow more resilient to antibiotics

Comparison of growth of Caulobacter crescentus when exposed to an antibiotic (bottom) and not (top).
New research led by Carnegie Mellon University Assistant Professor of Physics Shiladitya Banerjee demonstrates how certain types of bacteria can adapt to long-term exposure to antibiotics by changing their shape. The work was published in the journal Nature Physics.

Adaptation is a fundamental biological process driving organisms to change their traits and behavior to better fit their environment, whether it be the famed diversity of finches observed by pioneering biologist Charles Darwin or the many varieties of bacteria that humans coexist with. While antibiotics have long helped people prevent and cure bacterial infections, many species of bacteria have increasingly been able to adapt to resist antibiotic treatments.

Antibody spike months after Ebola infection surprisingly common

An Ebola survivor donates plasma at the blood bank at Connaught Hospital in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
A substantial proportion of people who survive Ebola may produce a spike in antibody levels more than six months after they've recovered from the disease, according to a study published today (January 27) in Nature.

Analyzing multiple plasma samples from 51 survivors of the West African outbreak of 2013-2016, researchers found that the levels of virus-neutralizing antibodies declined, as expected, in the days and weeks following recovery. But these levels shot up again in some survivors around the 200- to 300-day mark before declining again — evidence that Ebola virus may be lingering inside their bodies and re-emerging to trigger immune defenses, the researchers conclude in their paper.

"The idea that there can be a source of virus that could restimulate the immune system isn't surprising" in itself, says Carl Davis, an immunologist at Emory University who was not involved in the work. "But the fact that they were seeing this so frequently and to such a big magnitude is really pretty shocking."

Merck scraps COVID vaccines; says it is more effective to get the virus and recover

Shots generated an 'inferior' immune system response in comparison with natural infection

Vaccine manufacturer Merck has abandoned development of two coronavirus vaccines, saying that after extensive research it was concluded that the shots offered less protection than just contracting the virus itself and developing antibodies.

The company announced that the shots V590 and V591 were 'well tolerated' by test patients, however they generated an 'inferior' immune system response in comparison with natural infection.

The company stated that instead it will focus on research into therapeutic drugs labeled as MK-7110 and MK-4482. The drugs aim to protect patients from the damage of an overactive immune response to the virus. "Interim results from a Phase 3 study showed a greater than 50 percent reduction in the risk of death or respiratory failure in patients hospitalized with moderate to severe COVID-19," the company's statement noted of the MK-7110 drug.

Merck is to receive around $356 million from the US government to fast-track production of the potential treatments under Operation Warp Speed.

Comment: Refreshing to hear natural immunity takes the day - a validation of square one.

Oh sh*t. 'Anal swabs for COVID more accurate,' sez Chinese expert

COVID Testing

People line up for nucleic acid testing at a makeshift testing site in a park following the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, on a polluted day in Daxing district of Beijing, China January 26, 2021.
More than a million Beijing residents undergoing coronavirus testing amid a fresh outbreak have been administered anal swabs, which are considered more accurate and raise the chances of detecting COVID-19, said a Chinese disease specialist.

The key districts of Daxing and Dongcheng began a mass testing drive on Friday after a nine-year-old boy tested positive for the more virulent strain of the virus, first discovered in London and the southeast of England last month.

Health authorities in the Chinese capital said they were aiming to screen more than two million people in 48 hours. Among them, around 1.6 million inhabitants in Daxing were to be given antibody tests, as well as throat, nasal and rectal nucleic acid swabs.

Anal swabs have been in use since last year, including in the major port city of Shanghai, but the method is so far reserved for individuals in potential COVID-19 hotspots, according to an infectious disease expert quoted by China's state broadcaster CCTV on Saturday.

"Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, we've tested for the virus using mainly throat swabs. Its characteristics are convenience and speed, so it's suitable for large-scale testing," said Beijing You'an Hospital's Li Tongzeng. "Nasal swabs are more accurate than throat swabs, but nasal swabs can be uncomfortable.

"He added: "In some asymptomatic cases or in individuals with mild symptoms, they tend to recover from the illness very quickly. It's possible that there will be no trace of the virus in their throat after three to five days.

"What we've found is that in some infected patients, the coronavirus survives for a longer period of time in their digestive tract or excrement than in their respiratory tract."

A German study involving over 25,000 children reveals that major negative impacts on the physical, psychological, and behavioral health of children may be far more widespread than reported in the media and by government officials -- affecting approximately 68% and contributing to 24 distinct health complaints, according to parent submitted observations.

A concerning study conducted in Germany has been posted online as a preprint (not yet peer-reviewed) titled, "Corona children studies "Co-Ki": First results of a Germany-wide registry on mouth and nose covering (mask) in children," describing the results of 17,854 parent submitted reports on health complaints or impairments experienced as a result of wearing masks by their 25,930 children.

The study was designed to both explore the accumulating narratives reported by parents, educators, and doctors about increasing problems and health complaints in children and adolescents wearing masks, as well as to provide the first known online registry where parents, doctors, teachers, and others can enter their first-hand observations. The registry and the questionnaire can be found online at www.co-ki-masken.de
