UK doctors warn of 'biggest cancer crisis'

Britain is in the midst of a major healthcare crisis as months-long delays in cancer treatment have become increasingly commonplace, leading to higher mortality, the National Health Service (NHS) has warned.

On Wednesday, several British media outlets cited recent NHS figures, which showed that nearly 40% of all cancer patients urgently referred by their GP in October had to wait two months before receiving treatment. This is said to be the second-worst performance on record and well short of the 15% target.

The Guardian quoted doctors as saying that a mere four-week delay in cancer treatment "increases mortality by between 6% and 13% for solid cancers, with further increases if the delay is longer."

Meanwhile, according to an article published in the Lancet Oncology journal, there has been a 17% rise in UK cancer deaths caused by delays in diagnosis and treatment since the Covid-19 pandemic. This is believed to have contributed considerably to the breakdown of cancer treatment practices in the country.

Clinicians from Imperial College London, the Institute of Cancer Policy at King's College, Radiotherapy UK, and Check4Cancer have called for immediate action to tackle the crisis.

Comment: Why are there staff shortages and could there be something causing an increase in cancers? Questions the NHS, in all its wisdom, hasn't stopped to consider.

New study shows dangers of "long-COVID" in children and adolescents overstated and exaggerated

Long Covid
A new study by U.K. researchers sheds light on the complex nature of so-called "long COVID" symptoms in young persons. The prospective study revealed that although a percentage of people who contract COVID-19 develop persistent symptoms — and those symptoms are real — in most young people, the symptoms resolve on their own.

According to the researchers, the attribution of persistent symptoms solely to COVID-19 is ill-founded and has been exaggerated through the use of cross-sectional studies that don't follow participants over time.

Comment: The prevalence and severity of "long-COVID" was exaggerated from the beginning as part of a fear campaign to scare people into getting the COVID vaccine. See also:

Bombshell speech: British MP says leading figure in British Heart Foundation is suppressing evidence of vaccine heart damage

MP UK mRNA vaccines
A leading figure in the British Heart Foundation is suppressing evidence that the Covid vaccines cause heart damage, MP Andrew Bridgen has said.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr. Bridgen, the Conservative MP for North West Leicestershire, said:
It has also been brought to my attention by a whistleblower from a very reliable source that one of these institutions is covering up clear data that reveals that the mRNA vaccine increases inflammation of the heart arteries. It is covering this up for fear that it may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry. The lead of that cardiology research department has a prominent leadership role with the British Heart Foundation, and I am disappointed to say that he has sent out non-disclosure agreements to his research team to ensure that this important data never sees the light of day.

Comment: Kudos to this MP for his bravery and willingness to speak the truth on this topic. Unfortunately, there are many others who are afraid to discuss this publicly for fear of losing their jobs and tainting their reputation.

Why are we vaccinating babies?

baby vaccine
The U.K. has approved Covid vaccines for babies. The medical watchdog saying the "lower-dose Pfizer jab is safe and effective for kids aged 6 months and above", with the new approval covering infants age 6 months to 4 years.

The medicines regulator said the jab meets safety, quality and effectiveness standards. This means that Government vaccine advisers can now choose whether the jab should be dished out to babies.

There are already Government advertising campaigns targeting young people, as per the NHS: "The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against COVID-19."

The ongoing Covid deceptions: How ruling elites lied about masks and mask mandates

masked people
The mishandling of the covid-19 pandemic by global elites has severely eroded confidence in expert opinion. New information is emerging that senior officials doubted policies that were foisted upon the American public. By sharing the results of his deposition with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Missouri attorney general Eric Schmitt exposed Fauci's advocacy of face masks as insincere:
Another tidbit from the Fauci depo: In Feb 20 he emailed a friend advising her that masks were ineffective. Confirmed again on Mar 31. On April 3 he's adamant masks should be worn even though he couldn't cite a single study to prove it. Mandates followed — Lives ruined.
Numerous studies disputed the efficacy of face masks, yet mask mandates rose to national prominence. During the apex of pandemic hysteria, the American Institute for Economic Research ran a series of scathing articles debunking the usefulness of face masks. In fact, one prominent 2020 study boldly admitted that mask use is primarily symbolic:
We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes. . . . The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflective reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

Dr. Janci Lindsay speaks at a December 7 roundtable discussion with U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson.
In a Wednesday roundtable discussion hosted by US Sen. Ron Johnson, Dr. Janci Lindsay said 'there is no way that we can say at this point that [the shots] are safe nor effective.'

A toxicology expert with over 30 years of scientific experience issued a stark warning Wednesday about the potential reproductive harm she believes could be caused by the mRNA COVID jabs. She said more research is needed to determine the shots' effects on reproduction.

In a Wednesday roundtable discussion hosted by U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Dr. Janci Lindsay warned that the COVID-19 jabs could "potentially sterilize an entire generation" or else "be passed on to next generations as inadvertent gene transfer."

Comment: Remember how there was a covert program in Africa to sterilize young women through vaccination programs?

COVID booster mandates for young adults will cause 'net harm,' BMJ study says

Any potential benefits of the COVID-19 booster fail to outweigh the harms for young people ages 18-29, according to a peer-reviewed study published Monday in The BMJ Journal of Medical Ethics.

Researchers performed a risk-benefit assessment and ethical analysis using data from Pfizer, Moderna and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They concluded that "booster mandates in young adults are expected to cause a net harm."

More than 1,000 U.S. universities and colleges mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for residential students and more than 300 mandate the booster. Students who do not comply risk disenrollment.

What Industrial Ag gets wrong and how regenerative farming can fix it: Joe Rogan chats with 4th-generation farmer Will Harris

Will Harris is the owner of White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia, where he raises grass-fed cattle.
Will Harris is a regenerative farming pioneer who runs White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia. He produces high-quality grass-fed products, including beef and other animal products, and is an inspirational example of how to convert from conventional to regenerative agriculture and thrive financially.

Prior to the mid-'90s, Harris ran his farm the way his father and most every other farmer in the country had — "as a very linear, monocultural cattle operation," he says during an episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," "The factory farm model."

He now practices what he describes as regenerative agriculture, warning that it's only a matter of time before Big Ag corrupts this term "and takes it away from us." Regenerative agriculture, Harris says, "is a kinder, gentler agriculture ... we call it biomimicry, the emulation of nature."

Fake meat substitutes provide almost no zinc and iron due to extremely high anti-nutrient content

Fake meat - Real concerns
The availability of foods based on plant proteins to substitute for meat has increased dramatically as more people choose a plant-based diet. At the same time, there are many challenges regarding the nutritional value of these products. A study from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden now shows that many of the meat substitutes sold in Sweden claim a high content of iron -- but in a form that cannot be absorbed by the body.

A diet largely made up of plant-based foods such as root vegetables, pulses, fruit and vegetables generally has a low climate impact and is also associated with health benefits such as a reduced risk of age-related diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as has been shown in several large studies. But there have been far fewer studies of how people's health is affected by eating products based on what are known as textured* plant proteins.


Comment: It comes as no surprise that these highly-processed, man-made "meat substitutes" are practically devoid of nutritional value. To obtain optimal nutritional intake, the simple answer is to eat meat!

Scientists can't explain why the unjabbed are protected against infection, ignore elephant in the room

covid vaccine
The globalist cabal that invented and drove the make-believe COVID narrative is facing growing problems, as holes in the logic just keep getting larger over time. Case in point: The irrational promotion of vaccine equity.1

According to the World Health Organization and other globalist strongholds, the Western world must sponsor vaccine deliveries to developing nations to make sure everyone has an equal chance at survival.2 The problem is that developing nations with the lowest COVID jab uptakes have fared no worse, and in some cases far better, than developing countries that greedily "hoarded" shots and boosters for themselves.

Comment: At this point, the data are clear: COVID vaccines were a failure and achieve the opposite of their intended effect. Instead of protecting people, they increase the likelihood of infection, adverse events, and death of all causes:
