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:


Major new autopsy report reveals those who died suddenly were likely killed by the covid vaccine

mrna vaccines
A major new autopsy report has found that three people who died unexpectedly at home with no pre-existing disease shortly after Covid vaccination were likely killed by the vaccine. A further two deaths were found to be possibly due to the vaccine.

The report, published in Clinical Research in Cardiology, the official journal of the German Cardiac Society, detailed autopsies carried out at Heidelberg University Hospital in 2021. Led by Thomas Longerich and Peter Schirmacher, it found that in five deaths that occurred within a week of the first or second dose of vaccination with Pfizer or Moderna, inflammation of the heart tissue due to an autoimmune response triggered by the vaccine had likely or possibly caused the death.

The great Covid and smoking cover-up

I achieved a personal milestone in April 2020 when, for the first time, one of my articles was flagged up as fake news on Facebook. spiked rather invited trouble by giving it the headline 'Smoke fags, save lives', but even with a subtler title it would have been enough to alarm Zuckerberg's minions, since it discussed the growing evidence that smokers were heavily under-represented in Covid-19 wards.

Since back then Big Tech's fact-checkers were still describing claims about SARS-CoV-2 being airborne and face masks preventing infection as 'misleading', a fake-news flag was something of a badge of honour. And, as with those claims, the 'disputed' information in my article has been borne out by the evidence.

After a brief burst of incredulous coverage in the spring of 2020, the media soon lost interest in the hypothesis that smokers are less likely to get Covid-19, but dozens of studies have been quietly published in the past two-and-a-half years which confirm it. I have been listing them on my blog and last week added the hundredth study. It seems a good time to stop. By any reasonable standard, the jury is in.



Less mixing due to COVID pandemic could be behind increased Strep A infections, says expert, after six children die

Camila Rose Burns strep

Camila Rose Burns is fighting for her life in a Liverpool hospital.
Parents are advised to contact their GP or call the NHS to get suspected scarlet fever cases treated quickly to limit its spread and reduce the risk of complications. In most instances it's mild and easily treatable.

Less mixing between children due to the pandemic could have caused a drop in immunity to infections such as Strep A, a leading expert has suggested.

Six children have died in the UK after being found to have the bacterial infection and there have been more cases than normal this year.

Most Strep A cases are relatively mild and cause scarlet fever with symptoms such as a sore throat and a rash - which can be routinely treated with antibiotics.

Comment: While a lack of circulation among children during lockdown could lead to naive immune systems, the influence of circulating spike protein seems to be the elephant in the room, never discussed, never considered.

Britain "didn't need boosters" as they only last "70 days" and natural immunity "is best", says top Covid adviser Sir John Bell

Sir John Bell
Britain didn't need to roll out Covid booster jabs to the entire population, one of the country's top virus experts has said, as he backed natural immunity as superior to vaccine immunity and said letting the virus circulate is "probably the best way to protect the population". The Mail has more.
Sir John Bell, who served as Boris Johnson's testing tsar and an early member of the vaccines taskforce, said he's "not entirely sure" the nation needed top-up doses, which health chiefs said were vital for all adults to boost protection amid the Omicron wave last winter.

Third jabs have been offered to all over-16s and some at-risk 12 to 15-year-olds. And three rounds of seasonal booster jabs have been dished out to certain groups, including the over-50s, frontline NHS staff and carers.

What is causing the blood clots from 'Died Suddenly'?

Red blood cells in vein
The SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is remarkably effective at disrupting many critical physiologic processes both in the short term and in the long term.

I have always been drawn to understanding pharmaceutical injuries, and for years I've participated in support groups for a variety of different toxic pharmaceuticals (e.g. Lupron or Ciprofloxacin and other fluoroquinolones). In addition to being able to witness the human costs of these drugs firsthand (and the gaslighting those forgotten patients experience), this exploration has given me a great deal of perspective on the shared and differing toxicities these drugs share along with what methods can help the myriad of seemingly unrelated symptoms that emerge.

Once the COVID-19 vaccine rollout started, my focus understandably shifted toward them. Although many of the pathologies I saw resembled what I had seen with other toxic drugs (and to some degree responded to the same therapies), there was also a lot I had not seen before, which demonstrated these vaccines were in a different league of toxicity from what I was used to. I have thus spent the last two years trying to understand exactly how these vaccines kill and injure people.


New study claims to show Vitamin D doesn't help against Covid. Here's what they did wrong

vitamin d
Seven meta-analyses and systematic reviews (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) and three later clinical trials (1,2,3) argued that low vitamin D status increased susceptibility to COVID-19 and the risk of greater disease severity and mortality. Furthermore, there are five meta-analyses and systematic reviews of vitamin D supplementation for the prevention of acute respiratory infection (ARI) and COVID-19, as well as a later clinical trial, all showing that supplementation can protect against COVID-19 infection, disease severity and death. The evidence could not be much more conclusive than this.

Consequently, it was surprising to learn about Joliffe et al.'s recent randomised controlled trial of vitamin D to prevent ARIs and COVID-19, which concluded that: "Among people aged 16 years and older with suboptimal vitamin D status, implementation of a population level test-and-treat approach to vitamin D supplementation was not associated with a reduction in risk of all cause acute respiratory tract infection or COVID-19."

Joliffe et al.'s U.K. study was a test-and-treat approach used to determine the effect of correcting suboptimal vitamin D status (25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) < 75 nmol/L) on the risk of contracting ARIs and COVID-19. Those with 25(OH)D < 75 nmol/L (30 ng/mL) were randomised to six months of supplementary vitamin D at 3200 IU/day, 800 IU/day, or no supplements. The outcome was the percentage of subjects with confirmed ARI or COVID-19.

"Disturbed and alarmed": 66 doctors, clinicians and scientists call for stop to Covid vaccination of pregnant women over serious safety concerns

© pagespeed.ic
There follows an open letter from 66 doctors, scientists and clinical practitioners to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and the U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA) regarding safety concerns about COVID-19 vaccinations in pregnancy. Where is the evidence, they ask.
Obstetricians and gynaecologists in the U.K. have put their faith in and adjusted their practice according to guidance from their Royal College (RCOG). However, recent advice from the RCOG has been in complete contradiction to everything that it itself and academic institutions have been teaching about evidence-based medicine.
This advice is that: COVID-19 vaccines are not only safe but strongly recommended for pregnant women.
Such advice is not grounded in robust data based on ethically conducted research - and anyone who is medically and academically trained should take serious issue with this.
