Vitamin D levels affect overall survival for melanoma (skin cancer) patients, a new study presented at the 31st European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress has shown.

Dermatology researchers discovered that those who were deficient in vitamin D (lower than 10ng/mL) following their melanoma diagnosis were twice as likely (hazard ratio 2.3) to have lower overall survival than those with vitamin D levels equal/greater than 10ng/mL.

The retrospective study analyzed a cohort of 264 patients with invasive melanoma from the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, to investigate whether vitamin D plays a protective role in melanoma survival.

Pfizer to Make Record $54 Billion From COVID Shots and Treatment

Pfizer
Pfizer predicted $32 billion in profits from its COVID-19 shots and another $22 billion from Paxlovid — a pill used to treat COVID-19 but can cause the virus to rebound — for a total of $54 billion.

While the world was plunged into a time of economic instability and panic during the COVID-19 pandemic, pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer made out like bandits and continue to reap the astonishing profits of their ineffective COVID-19 treatments.

Ironically, part of what makes the treatments so profitable is the fact that they don't do what they're supposed to, which is to prevent and effectively treat COVID-19.

Comment: The data which continues to be released on the lack of efficacy of these vaccines, along with the significant side-effect profile and fatality rate, begins to paint very disturbing picture:

Landmark first peer-reviewed study on Pfizer and Moderna covid vaccines confirms 'excess risk' of adverse side effects

moderna pfizer vaccines
A landmark peer-reviewed study appears to be the first of its kind to provide hard data on the "excess risk" of adverse side effects of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines in an independent "randomized clinical trial."

The results of the accepted scientific study confirm that the concerns that many patients had about the mRNA vaccines were well-founded.

"In the Moderna trial, the excess risk of serious AESIs (15.1 per 10,000 participants) was higher than the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group (6.4 per 10,000 participants)," the study found.

Does the virus exist? A critical need for resolution

The airwaves of alt media are once again bristling with strings of activity over whether or not COVID-19 is a manipulated hoax that doesn't even involve an infectious microbial agent in the form of SARS-CoV-2.

This one's not going away either - at least until there's some reconciliation - such is the passion each side has for its arguments. What makes this latest polarisation unique is that it is the first that could do real harm to the truth and health freedom movement. A movement that's so far been more or less united in calling out manipulated science and defects in global policy on COVID-19, whether that's unjustified lockdowns or masks, misleading PCR or mortality data, or creeping totalitarianism.

New study finds walking in nature reduces brain activity associated with stress

Living in a city is a well-known risk factor for developing a mental disorder, while living close to nature is largely beneficial for mental health and the brain. A central brain region involved in stress processing, the amygdala, has been shown to be less activated during stress in people who live in rural areas, compared to those who live in cities, hinting at the potential benefits of nature.

"But so far the hen-and-egg problem could not be disentangled, namely whether nature actually caused the effects in the brain or whether the particular individuals chose to live in rural or urban regions," says Sonja Sudimac, predoctoral fellow in the Lise Meitner Group for Environmental Neuroscience and lead author of the study.

The new COVID vaccines have only been tested on mice

As the U.S., U.K. and other countries around the world prepare for a fall vaccination campaign against both the flu and COVID, it's worth taking note of some basic facts. In "Untested Bivalent COVID Jab Being Rolled Out," I reviewed potential problems with Moderna's new bivalent COVID shot for adults, authorized by the U.K. in mid-August 2022.

August 23, 2022, Pfizer and Moderna submitted their respective authorization requests to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.1 Pfizer is releasing a bivalent injection targeting Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5, which are the two currently in circulation, while Moderna's shot targets the already extinct Wuhan strain and Omicron subvariant BA.1.2

August 31, the FDA authorized both.3 The bivalent boosters will only be available to those who have already received the primary two-dose series and/or a monovalent booster at least two months ago. Per the FDA:4

People generate their own oxidation field of free radicals and pollute the indoor air chemistry around them

People typically spend 90 percent of their lives inside, at home, at work, or in transport. Within these enclosed spaces, occupants are exposed to a multitude of chemicals from various sources, including outdoor pollutants penetrating indoors, gaseous emissions from building materials and furnishings, and products of our own activities such as cooking and cleaning. In addition, we are ourselves potent mobile emission sources of chemicals that enter the indoor air from our breath and skin.

But how do the chemicals disappear again? In the atmosphere outdoors, this happens to a certain extent naturally by itself, when it rains and through chemical oxidation. Hydroxyl (OH) radicals are largely responsible for this chemical cleaning. These very reactive molecules are also called the detergents of the atmosphere and they are primarily formed when UV light from the sun interacts with ozone and water vapor.

Comment: Indoor air pollution has not received much attention with respect to its health effects. However, given these recent findings, improving ventilation and overall quality of the air inside through using house plants might be a useful strategy:

Following the Science? - 159 children dead, 1.2k disabled, 14.5k hospitalised & 55k injured due to COVID vaccination in the USA according to CDC

Child Vaccine

The latest figures published by the USA's Centers for Disease Control reveal over 56,000 children have been injured due to Covid-19 vaccination across the USA, and sadly 1,174 of these children either suffered a life-threatening event or a permanent disability, while tragically a further 159 children sadly lost their lives.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) hosts a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that is updated weekly and can be found here.

Unfortunately, the CDC reveals that at least 56,265 children (Aged 0 to 17) have suffered an injury due to Covid-19 vaccination as of August 26th 2022.

Comment: And where's the outrage?

Israel covered up long-lasting harmful effects of Covid jabs, corporate media won't cover the story

Israel vaccination
In an article published yesterday, Steve Kirsch detailed the proof that Israel found serious safety problems with the Covid "vaccines" and then deliberately covered it up.
"Israel didn't start to gather safety data until a year into the vaccine program. They gathered 6 months' worth of data and found that the vaccines weren't safe so they lied to the world about it," he wrote. "This is the single most important article on my Substack"
The Israeli Ministry of Health ("MoH") was informed by their own hand-selected outside expert group headed by Prof. Mati Berkowitz that the Covid injections are not as safe as the MoH had been claiming to the Israeli people. It was just the opposite. Adverse events were not mild and short-term but were serious and long-lasting. Instead of admitting their mistake, the MoH covered it up by issuing a report that distorted the expert report.

Circadian rhythm disruption found to be common among mental health disorders

Anxiety, autism, schizophrenia and Tourette syndrome each have their own distinguishing characteristics, but one factor bridging these and most other mental disorders is circadian rhythm disruption, according to a team of neuroscience, pharmaceutical sciences and computer science researchers at the University of California, Irvine.

In an article published recently in the Nature journal Translational Psychiatry, the scientists hypothesize that CRD is a psychopathology factor shared by a broad range of mental illnesses and that research into its molecular foundation could be key to unlocking better therapies and treatments.

"Circadian rhythms play a fundamental role in all biological systems at all scales, from molecules to populations," said senior author Pierre Baldi, UCI Distinguished Professor of computer science. "Our analysis found that circadian rhythm disruption is a factor that broadly overlaps the entire spectrum of mental health disorders."
