Homeopathic drugs modify gene expression in cancer cells

homeopathic remedies
Researchers have discovered that very highly diluted homeopathic drugs can modify gene expression in cervical cancer cells1.

To probe the effects of homeopathic drugs on gene expressions, the researchers prepared two homeopathic drugs by highly diluting alcohol-based root extracts of two medicinal plants: Hydrastis canadensis and Marsdenia condurango. They then treated cultured cervical cancer cells with the drugs and a placebo drug for two days in a carbon dioxide incubator.

The homeopathic drugs activated a host of genes, triggering apoptosis — a process that kills cancer cells in a controlled way. The drugs induced cell death by altering DNA methylation, an epigenetic process that is known to modify gene expression without changing DNA sequences.

Comment: And yet critics will still insist homeopathic medicines are nothing more than placebo.

Covid-19 test caused brain fluid leak in US patient with rare condition

A Covid-19 nasal swab test punctured a US woman's brain lining, causing fluid to leak from her nose and putting her at risk of life-threatening infection, doctors reported in a medical journal on Thursday.

The patient, who is in her 40s, had an undiagnosed rare condition and the test she received may have been carried out improperly, a sequence of improbable events that means the risk from nasal tests remains very low.

But her case showed health care professionals should take care to follow testing protocols closely, Jarrett Walsh, senior author of the paper that appeared in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, told AFP.

People who've had extensive sinus or skull base surgery should consider requesting oral testing if available, he added.

Objective:Health - Fluoride on Trial

O:H header
In November of 2016, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), together with it's partners Food & Water Watch, Organic Consumers Association, American Academy of Environmental Medicine, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, Moms Against Fluoridation and several individuals, filed a petition against the Environmental Protection Agency on the grounds that a large body of research demonstrates fluoride is neurotoxic at doses within the range now seen in fluoridated communities. The EPA denied their petition in 2017.

In response, FAN and its coalition partners filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, legally challenging the EPA's denial of their petition. The results of this trial have been publicized recently, and they are surprisingly good news!

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we review the results of the trial and talk about the case against water fluoridation.

German Neurologist Warns Against Wearing Facemasks: 'Oxygen Deprivation Causes Permanent Neurological Damage'

face mask oxygen deprivation Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD
This is one of the most important posts I have ever made, so please read it. I have written a transcript of some highlights from Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson's recent and extremely pressing video message, which was translated from German into English by Claudia Stauber.

Original video by Griesz-Brisson

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD is a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist with a PhD in Pharmacology, with special interest in neurotoxicology, environmental medicine, neuroregeneration and neuroplasticity. This is what she has to say about facemasks and their effects on our brains:

Comment: There is no scientific evidence for the efficacy of facemasks against airborne virus transmission, but there is scientific evidence for the dangers of wearing facemasks.

Fluoride on trial: EPA scientists admit fluoride harms the brain

fluoridation on trial RFK jr
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention promotes water fluoridation as one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century when, in reality, it's one its greatest failures. Yet, in the face of solid scientific evidence of harm, politics and public relations have kept the practice alive.

Proponents such as the American Dental Association and the Oral Health Division of the Centers for Disease Control have spent millions of dollars on promotion1 and public relations2 to sell fluoridation using half-truths and misleading talking points.

While the U.S. is still trying to hold on to the fallacy that water fluoridation is a public health service, it's one of the most widely rejected health interventions in the world, with 95% of the global population consuming nonfluoridated water.

The mask and the bump

I was on the bus the other night with my wife. There were only 3 of us not wearing masks on our public transport, which mandates mask wearing but with medical exemptions. Across the aisle was an attractive, healthy looking young woman, perhaps mid 20s wearing a mask.

She was pregnant, I'd guess in the 2nd trimester. According to the US NIOSH (National Institute for Safety and Health) there are now millions of pregnant women wearing masks — primarily because they're mandated to do so. But there doesn't appear to be any data for how long they're worn and under what circumstances, i.e. indoors, outdoors, working, exercising or whatever.

Given what I've learned about masks I had a strong urge to warn her that there were serious risks to her and I assumed the unborn baby. I assumed because I really didn't know. The problem is there are virtually no reliable studies which link mask wearing to postnatal outcomes. But as I've come to understand the lack of a specific study need not inhibit an accurate risk/benefit analysis. So let's do that.

The wearing of masks to attempt to prevent the spread of a virus has never been widespread in the general population in the Western world. (An exception to that was during the 1918 flu pandemic, masks were mandated in some cities, USA, but not others.

Subsequent studies showed no difference in infection rates or deaths between the mask wearing cities and those that chose not to.) In Asia where mask wearing is more common they are worn for a multitude of reasons including, significantly, for protection against car exhaust and industrial air pollution. Most studies everywhere have concentrated on "fit for purpose" or effectiveness analyses.

Take the jab or lose your job: Medical journal calls for a MANDATORY Covid vaccine, says 'noncompliance should incur a penalty'

With half the US population reportedly unwilling to submit to an experimental Covid-19 shot, a new scientific paper has shed light on how state health authorities might enforce compliance with vaccine mandates.

Published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Thursday, the paper outlines strategies for circumventing widespread fears over the safety of a rushed-to-market vaccine against the novel coronavirus, providing health authorities with a playbook for coercing a skittish populace.

The writers acknowledge that voluntary measures should be tried first, rather than mandating the vaccine for everyone out of the gate. However, if the target population doesn't comply within a trial period, a mandate should be rolled out, and the penalties for refusing to submit should be harsh. Given "the costs of a failed voluntary scheme," the writers warn, authorities should wait no more than a few weeks before rolling out a mandate if uptake falls short of expectations.

Justice Department announces largest healthcare fraud takedown

DOJ healthcare fraud takedown
Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Rabbitt announces cases that charge more than 300 individuals with health care fraud schemes involving more than $6 billion in alleged health care fraud and millions of prescription opioid doses.

In a press conference Wednesday in Washington to address cases charged as part of the Telemedicine, Sober Homes, and Regional initiative, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and other enforcement agencies announcement marks "the largest amount of fraud ever charged by DOJ in a single national takedown operation," Rabbitt said.

Adding, "our efforts represent a continuation of the department's ongoing work to combat the devastating effects of health care fraud and opioid abuse around the country."

Hydroxychloroquine is a cheap and effective remedy for COVID-19: Anthony Fauci's "big lie"

With a grand jury approach, the revealing of evidence herein shows that Dr. Anthony Fauci has deliberately ignored massive amounts of data showing that hydroxychloroquine is a safe, cheap and effective remedy for COVID-19. By ignoring his ethical responsibility as a physician to first do no harm, his behavior continues to cause preventable pain, suffering and death. Evidence also vindicates what President Trump said and did early on to inform Americans about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine.

1. The Case

Mounting COVID-19 cases and deaths result from limitations on physicians using a safe, effective and low-cost treatment medicine. This, despite many studies and data from other countries showing that HCQ really works to lower death rates and keep affected people from needing hospitalizations and expensive care.

Missing from discussions of hydroxychloroquine use is explicit acknowledgment that Anthony Fauci has used his considerable power and influence to block use of the drug and prevent physicians from using their best judgment. The media have failed to connect two death-causing actions: 1. Some state governors forcing nursing homes to accept virus-infected elderly people; and 2. Government preventing wide and early use of HCQ.
