Different from many conventional cancer therapies, ivermectin kills cancer cells by enhancing immune response.

Rick Alderson was a retired sawmill worker who was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer in November 2020.

He experienced excruciating pain in his bowels for months; then, a gastroenterologist found a large tumor in his rectum and told him and his wife he only had six months to live.

Comment: Not bad for a "horse de-wormer"! The more research that goes into ivermectin, the more of a miracle drug it turns out to be, with a broad range of therapeutic benefits beyond Covid. Is it any wonder there was a wide-sweeping smear campaign against it?

Scientists are in the early days of creating a drug that can mimic cellular benefits of exercise for people unable to engage in physical activity.

Could popping a pill bring someone similar benefits to running on a treadmill or doing resistance training? In new research, scientists moved one step closer to making this a reality and developing a drug that can mimic some of the cellular effects of exercise.

The goal is to make a drug that flips switches in human cells that would normally be activated by exercise. These switches help maintain and regenerate muscle mass and boost the activity of cells' power houses, for example, said principal investigator Bahaa Elgendy, an associate professor of medicinal chemistry and anesthesiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.


FDA loses its war on Ivermectin: Must remove all related social media content and consumer advisories

In December 2021, the FDA warned Americans not to use Ivermectin, which "is intended for animals" to treat or prevent COVID-19.

"Never use medications intended for animals on yourself or other people. Animal ivermectin products are very different from those approved for humans. Use of animal ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous," FDA said at the time.

This was a very controversial statement at the time since the FDA pushed the drug on African migrants back in 2015, and the drug was praised in several scientific journals.

There have now been 101 Ivermectin COVID-19 controlled studies that show a 62% lower risk in early treatment in COVID-19 patients.

The COVID-19 pandemic, declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2020, has spurred unprecedented efforts to develop and deploy genetic vaccination programs worldwide. Genetic vaccines, particularly those utilizing mRNA technology, have emerged as powerful tools in combating SARS-CoV-2 infection. However, concerns have been raised regarding potential risks associated with blood transfusions involving individuals who have received COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. This COVID-19 News report delves into the intricacies of genetic vaccines, the risks they may pose in transfusion scenarios, and proposes detailed measures to address these concerns.

The argument comes as the court prepares to hear the most significant abortion-related case since it overturned Roe v. Wade in 2022.

The Biden administration asked the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling that reversed regulations that made abortion pill mifepristone easier to obtain.

The case, to be heard on March 26, is the Supreme Court's most important abortion-related case since its decision in June 2022 in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) and found that there was no right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. The ruling returned the regulation of abortion to the states.

A medication abortion generally involves the use of mifepristone, which blocks the hormone progesterone, and misoprostol, which induces contractions. Mifepristone is also known as mifeprex and RU-486. Misoprostol, which is widely available because it has many medical uses, isn't an issue in the current litigation.

Best of the Web: 'Deep genetic and cellular changes relating to detoxification' found in tissue of tobacco smokers

france cafe
It's no secret that smoking is extremely detrimental to health. Tobacco smoke contains thousands of chemicals, including carcinogens, increasing the risk of cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.

A new study from the University of Chicago analyzed data from more than 900 samples of nine different human tissue types to understand just how deep the cellular and genetic damage from smoking goes. The research team generated epigenetic data to assess the effects of smoking on DNA methylation, or genetic locations where a handful of atoms can attach to DNA and turn off gene expression.

They found several new regions associated with smoking, including some that are shared across tissue types, suggesting that DNA methylation is part of the body's attempts to defend itself from the damaging effects of tobacco smoke.

Comment: Vaccines work by stimulating the body to protect itself against dead viruses, and yet they're considered to be a revolution in medicine; exercise 'damages' the muscle tissue creating a healthier physiology overall - the point being that perhaps there's more than one way to look at what's happening here.

Global cancer phenomenon: UK, Japan, South Africa, among dozens of countries suffering 'mystery' spikes of tumors

cancer rate
The above graph shows the change in cancer case rates around the world
Doctors across the world are sounding the alarm over a surging epidemic of young people being diagnosed with cancers more commonly associated with the elderly.

Between 1990 and 2019, cases of cancer in young people across the globe have increased by 79 percent and deaths have risen 28 percent.

Studies project diagnoses will continue to rise by 31 percent and deaths will rise by 21 percent in 2030.

Nearly every continent is experiencing an increase of various types of cancer in people under 50 years old, which is particularly problematic as the disease tends to be caught in later stages in this population because most doctors aren't trained to look for it in young people.

Comment: What with the experimental covid vaccines, lockdowns, as well as the overall worsening of living conditions for people - that is accelerating at a pace unseen for decades - it's likely that the appearance of 'turbo cancers', deaths of despair, and unusual outbreaks, is just the beginning: Leprosy cases surge in US, deaths from rabies double in Vietnam


Aussie health agency says no such thing as 'long COVID'

© Nicholas Felix/peopleimages.comExperts said the term came into use after high volumes of people struggled to recover from COVID at once, saying the longer recovery period some experience after a viral illness would normally go unnoticed.
Follow the science — right out the door.

The term "long COVID" should be tossed aside like a stack of expired N95 masks — that's according to health experts in one country, who found that symptoms of those reportedly suffering a year on weren't any different than your typical virus, such as the flu.

Government-backed medical researchers in Australia say it's time to stop using the fear-inducing phrase, which became popular after high volumes of people testing positive for COVID-19 led to a surge in generally non-severe "virus fatigue symptoms" that would normally have gone unnoticed, South West News Service reported.

"We believe it is time to stop using terms like 'long COVID,'" said Dr. John Gerrard, Queensland's chief health officer, who oversaw the newly released study.

Comment: That is not to say the whole covid event was not without danger and damage. What is being obfuscated is the source of the damage.


Leprosy cases surge in US, deaths from rabies double in Vietnam

What is leprosy and why is it resurfacing in the US?

Leprosy is caused by two different but similar bacteria - Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis - the latter having just been identified in 2008. Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, is avoidable.

Transmission among the most vulnerable in society, including migrant and impoverished populations, remains a pressing issue.

This age-old neglected tropical disease, which is still present in more than 120 countries, is now a growing challenge in parts of North America.

Leprosy is beginning to occur regularly within parts of the southeastern United States. Most recently, Florida has seen a heightened incidence of leprosy, accounting for many of the newly diagnosed cases in the US.

Comment: Xinhua reports:
Vietnam records surging number of deaths from rabies

Vietnam recorded 22 rabies-related deaths in the first two months of this year, two times higher than the same period last year, the General Department of Preventive Medicine under the Health Ministry said on Thursday.

The Central Highlands region remains a hot spot with five deaths in Dak Lak and Gia Lai provinces.

According to the department, the recent infection cases had a short incubation period of 10-15 days.

Many patients were children under five years old who were bitten by dogs and cats in the head and face areas, causing serious injuries around the central nervous system.

The health ministry has issued a warning about the increased risk of animal-to-human rabies infection because of the poor vaccination rate among dogs and cats.

The rate of vaccination against rabies has only reached almost 50 percent of the total dog and cat population. Some places reported only 10 percent, according to the ministry.

That may be so, but this has likely been the case for a while, so why the increase in infections? There have been more animal attacks? Children are more vulnerable?

Note that back in 2021: 3 children DEAD & 120 hospitalized in just 1 week due to Pfizer jab, Vietnam province suspends batch but 'may use it later on adults'

The ministry has advised people who raise dogs and cats to be fully vaccinated against rabies and re-vaccinated annually as recommended by the veterinary sector.

Those bitten by dogs and cats must visit medical facilities for examination, consultation and injection of rabies vaccine and anti-rabies serum, the ministry said.
As you can read below, the reasons for the outbreaks are varied, but there certainly seems to be a concerted effort by the establishment to create the conditions for some of them:


"Major Measles outbreak" reported in US as migrant shelters become infectious disease breeding grounds

measeles outbreak
The radical progressives in the Biden administration are responsible for the greatest migrant invasion this nation has ever seen but also an emerging public health crisis, as millions of unvaccinated and undocumented illegals (some with infectious diseases) are being piled into migrant shelters nationwide like cattle.

Daily Mail reports the US is on the verge of a "major measles outbreak," with cases in the first two months of the year nearly eclipsing those in the previous year.
" ... as doctors warn many young physicians have never even seen a patient infected with the virus. Hundreds of people are already feared to be infected in California and Arizona after cases were confirmed in people in the states who visited local hospitals," the media outlet said.
