Merck's pill to combat COVID-19
Merck announced Friday that updated data on its experimental COVID-19 pill show the drug is less effective than previously reported, and will now move to test treatment for safety.

Merck said the pill, Molnupiravir, showed a 30% reduction in hospitalization and deaths based on data from roughly 1,400 patients. Figures from an interim study released Oct. 1 showed an approximately 50% efficacy based on data from over 1,400 patients.

The drugmaker released the results of the study to the Food and Drug Administration, which will meet to discuss the pill in November.

Data from October also showed 7.3% of patients given Molnupiravir twice a day for five days were hospitalized, and none had died by 29 days after starting treatment. Meanwhile, 14.1% of placebo patients were hospitalized.

Updated data showed 6.8% of patients given the drug were hospitalized, and one died while 9.7% of the placebo group went to the hospital.

Objective:Health - Anthony Fauci: Sad Little Psychopath

O:H header
It's time for a good old fashioned Fauci-bashin'!

Since the release of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book, "The Real Anthony Fauci," the crimes against humanity of Anthony Fauci have been circulating throughout alternative media. In RFK Jr.'s book, he lays out the entire sordid career of Anthony Fauci, the horrific experiments he conducted on children, his Machiavellian politics, the close ties between the "health" system and the intelligence agencies, and more. If you thought Fauci was bad for what he's done during the "pandemic," you will not believe the level of evil this man has attained throughout his career.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we take a peek into the life of a truly evil man who is, in all likelihood, a psychopath. You're gonna need a shower after this one!

Latest devastating news on the vaccine

If you weren't already convinced, you double your risk of cardiac incidents and the rate of stillborn babies is up by 29 times (but only if you are vaccinated). Does anyone in authority care?

Research Abstract
© Circulation
I'm getting a lot of people telling me about this abstract that appeared in Circulation, which is arguably the top-rated journal on cardiology. This was incorporated in my latest slide deck (slide 26 and 27 at the time this is being written).

Yes, this is a big deal. But nobody is listening. Cardiac risk could go up 1,000X after vaccination and it wouldn't matter. Nobody is listening. This article is proof of that.

Here's the punch line from the abstract:
These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac. We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.

FDA produces the first batch of documents from Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine file

FDA Approval

Two months and one day after it was sued, and close to 3 months since it licensed Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine, the FDA released the first round of documents it reviewed before licensing this product. The production consisted of 91 pdf pages, one xpt file, and one txt file. You can download them here.

While it is for the scientists to properly analyze, let me share one observation. One of the documents produced is a Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Reports of [the Vaccine] Received Through 28-Feb-2021, which is a mere 2 ½ months after the vaccine received emergency use authorization (EUA). This document reflects adverse events following vaccination that have completed Pfizer's "workflow cycle," both in and outside the U.S., up to February 28, 2021.

Pfizer explains, on page 6, that "Due to the large numbers of spontaneous adverse event reports received for the product, [Pfizer] has prioritised the processing of serious cases..." and that Pfizer "has also taken a [sic] multiple actions to help alleviate the large increase of adverse event reports" including "increasing the number of data entry and case processing colleagues" and "has onboarded approximately [REDACTED] additional fulltime employees (FTEs)." Query why it is proprietary to share how many people Pfizer had to hire to track all of the adverse events being reported shortly after launching its product.

As for the volume of reports, in the 2 ½ months following EUA, Pfizer received a total of 42,086 reports containing 158,893 "events." Most of these reports were from the U.S. and disproportionately involved women (29,914 vs. 9,182 provided by men) and those between 31 and 50 years old (13,886 vs 21,325 for all other age groups combined, with another 6,876 whose ages were unknown). Also, 25,957 of the events were classified as "Nervous system disorders"

Fauci hopes babies will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccine by early 2022

Dr. Tony Fauci
Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci said Thursday that though he "can't guarantee it," babies and toddlers aged 6 months to 5 years could be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination by spring.

"Hopefully within a reasonably short period of time, likely the beginning of next year in 2022, in the first quarter of 2022, it will be available to them," Fauci told Insider in an interview, though he cautioned that he was speculating, adding, "you've got to do the clinical trial."

Pfizer-BioNTech previously stated that results from their clinical trial in children in the age ranges of 2 to 5 years and 6 months to 2 years are expected as soon as the fourth quarter of this year.

Moderna & Pfizer booster shots approved by FDA after vaccine injuries near one MILLION

COVID vaccine
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data today showing a total of 894,145 adverse events following COVID vaccines were reported between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 12, 2021, to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.

The data included a total of 18,853 reports of deaths — an increase of 392 over the previous week — and 139,126 reports of serious injuries, including deaths, during the same time period — up 3,726 compared with the previous week.

New analysis of ONS data finds that vaccine effectiveness against death has been overestimated and uncovers an alarming spike in Covid deaths post-vaccination

deaths covid graph
There follows a guest post by 'Amanuensis', an ex-academic and senior Government researcher/scientist with experience in the field, who has undertaken a re-analysis of ONS data on deaths by vaccination status and concluded that vaccine effectiveness against death has been significantly overestimated owing to a failure to take into account the delay between infection and death. His analysis also uncovers an alarming spike in Covid deaths following vaccination during a Covid surge which, he says, needs urgent investigation. This post is also available on his Substack page.
Recently a blog post was brought to my attention. This was a very interesting piece of work that is directly related to a previous post of mine analysing the deaths by vaccination status figures published by the Office for National Statistics.

In Norman Fenton's excellent analysis he considers the impact of a delay in the reporting of a death on the shape of the deaths curve; he finds that such a delay during a vaccination campaign will naturally result in the creation of a spike in unvaccinated deaths and an under-estimation of deaths in the vaccinated - indeed, he notes that you would see that spike in deaths even if the vaccines do nothing. If you want to read more about his analysis his site can be found here - and I recommend at least a quick skim of his work because I'll be building on the fundamentals of data analysis that he considers.

Scientists mystified by the obvious: Africa avoids COVID disaster despite not having vaccines

People are seen at a busy market in a poor township on the outskirts of the capital Harare, Monday, Nov, 15, 2021. When the coronavirus first emerged last year, health officials feared the pandemic would sweep across Africa, killing millions and destroying the continent’s fragile health systems. Although it’s still unclear what COVID-19’s ultimate toll will be, that catastrophic scenario has yet to materialize in Zimbabwe or much of Africa.
At a busy market in a poor township outside Harare this week, Nyasha Ndou kept his mask in his pocket, as hundreds of other people, mostly unmasked, jostled to buy and sell fruit and vegetables displayed on wooden tables and plastic sheets. As in much of Zimbabwe, here the coronavirus is quickly being relegated to the past, as political rallies, concerts and home gatherings have returned.

"COVID-19 is gone, when did you last hear of anyone who has died of COVID-19?" Ndou said. "The mask is to protect my pocket," he said. "The police demand bribes so I lose money if I don't move around with a mask." Earlier this week, Zimbabwe recorded just 33 new COVID-19 cases and zero deaths, in line with a recent fall in the disease across the continent, where World Health Organization data show that infections have been dropping since July.

When the coronavirus first emerged last year, health officials feared the pandemic would sweep across Africa, killing millions. Although it's still unclear what COVID-19's ultimate toll will be, that catastrophic scenario has yet to materialize in Zimbabwe or much of the continent.

Comment: So much mental gymnastics to avoid the obvious: natural immunity is better than vaccine derived immunity in every conceivable way. One hopes for Africa's sake that the "help" from Western nations is delayed as much as possible. They're doing just fine on their own.

Dr. Anthony Fauci
President Biden's chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci on Thursday night urged those 18 and older to get a booster shot for added protection against COVID-19.

Fauci said on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes" that he has believed "for some time now" that boosters are effective and should be recommended for all adults in the U.S. who received their vaccine six months ago or longer.


Comment: "For some time now" apparently means less than 4 months. See: Fauci says, based on current data from CDC, FDA, there's no need for booster shot


"If you're 18 or older, go get boosted," Fauci said.

Saturated fat is innocent of health crimes

Healthy Fats
© Wiseman Family Practice
It's a mystery that has confounded nutrition scientists.

People who have high levels of cholesterol in their blood — especially LDL cholesterol, a.k.a. the "bad" kind — are at elevated risk for cardiovascular disease.

Meanwhile, foods high in saturated fatty acids — including eggs, full-fat dairy products, and red meat — raise blood levels of cholesterol, including LDL cholesterol.

It stands to reason that eating these foods would increase a person's risks for cardiovascular disease, which is the number-one cause of death in the U.S. and around the world. This logic has led both the World Health Organization and U.S. health authorities to recommend that people limit their intakes of saturated fat.

But there's a problem: People who eat these foods don't seem to develop cardiovascular disease at elevated rates (CVD).

A 2019 research analysis in the journal Nutrition Reviews looked at the findings of both observational studies and randomized controlled trials. It found no consistent associations between dietary intakes of saturated fat and heart disease — the most common and deadly form of CVD.

What explains this disconnect? A new hypothesis, published earlier this year in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, may provide the answer.

"I think we have been grossly wrong about saturated fats," says Marit Kolby, first author of the AJCN paper and a nutritional biologist at Oslo New University College in Norway. "In my opinion, saturated fat has been blamed for what refined carbohydrates do."
