Rockland County Executive Ed Day announces case of polio
A case of polio has been reported in Rockland, county officials have confirmed. The viral disease, which can cause neurological symptoms, paralysis or death, had been considered eradicated in the U.S. for decades.

The person had not been vaccinated against polio, health officials said.

The person, a young adult, was hospitalized but is no longer, officials confirmed. Officials said the person had presented with paralysis but wouldn't say if the paralysis was permanent. The person is no longer able to transmit the virus, officials said.

State health officials said polio is considered very contagious and a person can spread the virus even if they are not sick.

Building muscle with exercise and reassessing protein intake

weight lifting gaining muscle
Maintaining muscle mass as you age is an integral part of staying healthy and independent. Stuart Phillips, Ph.D., a professor of kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where he is also the director of the Physical Activity Center of Excellence, is an expert in this area and recently spoke with Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D., about how to use resistance exercise and protein intake to build muscle.

Once you reach your 40s, you may lose about 1% of muscle mass per year, which corresponds to a 1% to 3% drop in strength.1 Loss of muscle mass is associated with a downward decline in health, including an increased risk of premature death, while engaging in muscle-strengthening exercises for just 30 to 60 minutes per week is enough to lower your risk of death.2

However, it is important to understand that this is just the common observation and not a rule set in stone. I started aggressive resistance training and increasing my protein intake to 1.3 grams/kilogram in my 60s and at the age of 67 was able to increase about 25 pounds of muscle mass. So much so that I was able to ten reps of 600 pounds on a leg press (see below).

German Government admits Covid vaccines cause serious injury for one in 5,000 doses - But its own data show the real rate is one in 300 doses

The German Government publicly acknowledged on Wednesday that the Covid vaccines cause serious side effects for one in every 5,000 doses.

A tweet from the Ministry of Health stated (via Google translate): "One in 5,000 people is affected by a serious side effect after a COVID19 #vaccination. If you suspect #sideeffects, get medical attention and report your symptoms to @PEI_Germany." It later added a correction that the figure related to the reporting rate and to doses rather than individuals: "Correction: According to @PEI_Germany, the reporting rate for serious reactions is 0.2 reports per 1,000 vaccine doses." Subsequently, the original tweet was deleted and a corrected version put up.


More than 150 comparative studies and articles on mask ineffectiveness and harms

plague doctor beaked mask
It is not unreasonable to conclude that surgical and cloth masks, used as they currently are being used (without other forms of PPE protection), have no impact on controlling the transmission of Covid-19 virus. Current evidence implies that face masks can be actually harmful. The body of evidence indicates that face masks are largely ineffective.

My focus is on COVID face masks and the prevailing science that we have had for nearly 20 months. Yet I wish to address this mask topic at a 50,000-foot level on the lockdown restrictive policies in general. I build on the backs of the fine work done by Gupta, Kulldorff, and Bhattacharya on the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) and similar impetus by Dr. Scott Atlas (advisor to POTUS Trump) who, like myself, was a strong proponent for a focused type of protection that was based on an age-risk stratified approach.

Because we saw very early on that the lockdowns were the single greatest mistake in public health history. We knew the history and knew they would not work. We also knew very early of COVID's risk stratification. Sadly, our children will bear the catastrophic consequences and not just educationally, of the deeply flawed school closure policy for decades to come (particularly our minority children who were least able to afford this). Many are still pressured to wear masks and punished for not doing so.

I present the masking 'body of evidence' below (n=167 studies and pieces of evidence), comprised of comparative effectiveness research as well as related evidence and high-level reporting. To date, the evidence has been stable and clear that masks do not work to control the virus and they can be harmful and especially to children.


Depression 'is NOT caused by low serotonin levels': Study casts doubt over widespread use of potent drugs designed to treat chemical imbalance in brain

pills medications

Researchers from University College London said a review of evidence has found no link between low serotonin levels and depression casting doubt on antidepressants designed to boost levels of the 'feel good' chemical. But other experts have cast doubt of the findings.
Low serotonin levels do not cause depression, according to a major review.

Today's landmark findings call into question society's ever-growing reliance on antidepressants like Prozac.

Millions of patients take selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, designed to boost levels of the 'feel-good' chemical.

Covid-19 Australia: 'Pandemic babies' with no immunity to viruses ending up in ICU

Some of the 'pandemic babies' are presenting with inflammation of the chest, brain and heart caused by influenza, Covid, and RSV.
A concerning number of 'pandemic babies' with no immunity to respiratory viruses are ending up seriously ill in ICU.

Doctors have revealed children born during the Covid-19 pandemic are requiring intensive care 'from encountering viruses they haven't come across before', such as influenza, RSV and Covid. The children had been born and raised when there were virtually no other viruses circulating in Australia, other than Covid-19.

The Children's Hospital at Westmead infectious diseases paediatrician Dr Philip Britton said an analysis of ICU admissions across shows babies are testing positive for influenza and Covid at the same time.

'Over the last month or so, we have seen four times the admissions to hospital for flu in children as for Covid,' Dr Britton told The Daily Telegraph.

Comment: The damage done to new mothers and their infants by deceiving them about the safety of the Covid jab during pregnancy has not even begun to be calculated. And now they want to inject this poison into young children.

Objective:Health - Do Covid Vaccines Do Anything They're Supposed To?

O:H header
Welcome to another episode of In the News, where the Objective:Health hosts take a look through the latest health headlines and give their take.

On this week's episode, we once again dive into the murky world of Covid vaccines. The latest news has us wondering if these vaccines do ANYTHING they're supposed to. Coming out of the UK is data showing that the people most likely to die from Covid are those who have been vaccinated and, predictably, the more shots one has, the more likely they are to die.

We also look at the fact that deaths which occurred during Pfizer's safety trial on their mRNA shots weren't fully investigated (surprise surprise). We also delve into other ways the vaccine trials have been rigged.

Join us for all of this and more on this episode of Objective:Health.

'Alarming' rise in children trying to lose weight in England, say experts

Data was analysed from 34,235 children aged eight to 17, recorded as part of the Health Survey for England from 1997 to 2016.
Research suggests one in four children are on diets, including one in seven who are considered a healthy weight.

One in four children in England are on diets, research suggests, with the proportion who are considered healthy but trying to lose weight almost tripling.

Britain is engulfed in a child obesity crisis, with one in four 10- and 11-year-olds officially obese.

Comment: If these children were given the proper information about a healthy diet, this statistic wouldn't be concerning. The problem is that most of them are probably subscribing to fad diets and dangerous calorie restriction to try and achieve their aims.

New study: Covid vaccine linked to menstrual changes

tampons vaccines
A recent study has shown that almost half of women who took the Covid vaccine have reported changes to their menstrual cycle.

The journal Science Advances published the results of a study on Friday articulating links between the Covid vaccine and changes to menstruation. They found that "42% of people with regular menstrual cycles bleed more heavily than usual." The study also showed that women who were post-menopause or who use long-term contraceptives reported unexpected breakthrough bleeding after taking the vaccine.

NBC reports that the survey was conducted with 39,000 participants between the ages of 18 to 80 who were vaccinated with Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax vaccines. People between 45 and 55 were excluded to avoid inclusion of body changes due to menopause.

Comment: So much for the blame-it-on-white-men response...
