Can gut bacteria cause rheumatoid arthritis?

rheumatoid arthritis
Researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine have discovered that a unique bacteria found in the gut could be responsible for triggering rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in people already at risk for the autoimmune disease.

Kristine Kuhn, MD, Ph.D., associate professor of rheumatology, led a team of researchers from the Division of Rheumatology on the study, which published on October 26 in the journal Science Translational Medicine. CU School of Medicine student Meagan Chriswell is the lead author of the paper.

"Work led by co-authors Drs. Kevin Deane, Kristen Demoruelle, and Mike Holers here at CU helped establish that we can identify people who are at risk for RA based on serologic markers, and that these markers can be present in the blood for many years before diagnosis," Kuhn says. "When they looked at those antibodies, one is the normal class of antibody we normally see in circulation, but the other is an antibody that we usually associate with our mucosa, whether it be the oral mucosa, the gut mucosa, or the lung mucosa. We started to wonder, 'Could there be something at a mucosal barrier site that could be driving RA?'"

Is too much medicine making us sick?

tablets pills medicine pharmaceuticals
Thérèse Coffey, the new Health Secretary, was accused of "monumental stupidity" recently for giving leftover antibiotics to a friend. Doctors rounded on her as they described her actions as both dangerous and against the law. Medical professionals fear the public might think it safe and lawful to share unused medicines. This news came amid reports of plans to allow pharmacies to prescribe antibiotics without patients first being examined by their GPs. U.K. pharmacies will be allowed to manage and supply more medicines including contraception without a doctor's prescription under the plans to overhaul the creaking National Health Service. It comes after complaints from the public about a lack of face-to-face GP appointments since the Covid restrictions began.

This story appears to be a further example of our Government's Covid policy mindset, where the public are merely fodder for mass experimentation and where the politicians are absolved of any of the possible dire consequences. The harms of over-prescribing antibiotics and medicines may have been underestimated in the Government's Covid strategy.

An example of the mindset described above is the manner in which dental access was restricted during lockdown. An 'AAA' approach of advice, analgesics (painkillers) and antibiotics was instigated. A CQC report highlights some of the problems: there was already a serious access issue before Covid and the response to it resulted in further reduced capacity; there were more negative feedback accounts of patients searching for dentists many miles away, reeling in pain and even attempting to remove their own teeth with pliers; antibiotic prescribing increased by over 25% and in some areas such as London by 60%, according to a recent study in the British Dental Journal; patients were asked to attend alone and be masked; there were problems with dental services not being able to work well with other health and care providers and difficulties that prevented patients from receiving a prompt, joined-up experience of care.

UK regulator mulls Covid vaccination for babies despite high injury rate - as Moderna trial finds vaccine can cause diabetes in infants

baby needle
The U.K. regulator may decide on whether Covid vaccines should be approved for British babies before Christmas. The Mail has the story.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which polices the safety of drugs used in the U.K., told MailOnline it is currently reviewing data on Moderna's vaccine.

The pharmaceutical firm has submitted evidence in the hope of getting its jab approved for children aged six months and older, as it is in the EU and U.S. Only over-fives can currently get Covid vaccines in the U.K.

Any approval of jabs for babies would cause huge controversy. British authorities have so far held out on approving jabs for infants despite massive pressure, due to concerns that the benefits do not outweigh any potential risks. Children rarely get seriously ill with Covid and the majority are thought to have already been infected.

Experts said today that, even if approved, the jab must not be rolled out "en masse" to healthy infants.

Dr. Laura Squire, the MHRA's Chief Healthcare Quality and Access Officer, revealed the regulator was processing an application from Moderna. But she added the mRNA jab, which works in a similar way to Pfizer's, would only be approved if it met strict safety and efficacy standards.

Comment: As for Pfizer, here's an interesting document on its contract with the Slovenian government:
Note that there are 4 different contracts here dated 10 Dec 2020, 4 March 2021, 7 April 2021 and 28 Sept 2021. The documents show the number of doses ordered per month (but the price is redacted). But, note that even the latest of these contracts (dated 28 Sept 2021) contains the following statement in Article 1 (it's on page 17/25 of the scanned document)

"The ...State further acknowledges that the long-term effects and efficacy of the Vaccine are not currently known"

While that may have been a reasonable statement to include in the December 2020 contract, it is curious that no update at all had been added by the end of September 2021 given all the data on hundreds of millions of doses that had been adminstered by then.

Regarding the Pfizer contract with the UK (which presumably has the same wording) it is very interesting to note that this UK Government report ("Conditions of Authorisation for COVID-19 Vaccine Pfizer/BioNTech (Regulation 174", updated 16 Aug 2022) says:

"Pfizer/BioNTech must provide a regular analysis of safety data based on the MHRA's specifications relating to booster or supplementary doses"

I assume we are still waiting....


What was the Halloween death smog disaster? And other questions related to the fluoridation chemicals added to US water supplies

Killer smog

Killer smog in the Monongahela River Valley town of Donora, Pennsylvania
Why would anyone be opposed to water fluoridation? Doesn't fluoride occur in the water naturally anyway?
The fluoride products used in water fluoridation (sodium fluoride or fluorosilicic acid) are classified as hazardous waste products of the fertilizer, aluminum, and nuclear industries. They are even more toxic than naturally-occurring fluoride, since they contain other components, such as arsenic, lead, barium, and/or aluminum. See this.
However, even naturally-occurring fluoride, in areas with high concentrations (over 1 ppm) has been found to have extremely adverse health effects. Even before additional fluoride is added, the level of natural fluoride in the water in many areas in the U.S. is already equal to the amount of naturally-occurring fluoride that has been found to cause skeletal fluorosis in other countries.

Studies done in India and China found skeletal fluorosis in areas containing naturally occurring fluoride as low as .7 ppm. (Gupta et al 2007, Skeletal fluorosis mimicking seronegative arthritis. Scandanavian Journal of Rheumatology 36(2):154-5.) That same amount, .7 pmm is the current amount recommended by the CDC to be added to community water supplies.


The spike protein is disrupting immunity in millions after Covid infection OR vaccination

spike protein

A spike protein
Multiple studies have shown that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is a highly toxic and inflammatory protein, capable of causing pathologies in its hosts.

The presence of spike protein has been strongly linked with long COVID and post-vaccine symptoms. Studies have shown that spike proteins are often present in symptomatic patients, sometimes even months after infections or vaccinations.

The numbers of long COVID and post-vaccine cases have been climbing in the United States, increasingly posing as a healthcare problem.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that around 7 percent of Americans are currently experiencing long COVID symptoms, which would be over 15 million people. Some people with long COVID have been so debilitated that they cannot go to work, the same has been reported in people experiencing post-vaccine symptoms.

Unvaccinated children are 'our only hope' in generating herd immunity: Geert Vanden Bossche

Nora Burlingame, 3, sits on the lap of her mother, Dina Burlingame, and gets a fist bump from nurse Luann Majeed after receiving her first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination at UW Medical Center-Roosevelt in Seattle, Wash., on June 21, 2022.
For nearly two years, vaccine expert and virologist Geert Vanden Bossche has been on a mission to raise awareness of why healthy children should not receive COVID-19 vaccines.

Vanden Bossche, who has 30 years of experience in the vaccine industry, claims that it is primarily the unvaccinated children and adults who can generate herd immunity.

"The children are our only hope still, to generate herd immunity," Vanden Bossche told The Epoch Times. "And herd immunity means, thanks to their natural immunity, they can kill the virus, they can sterilize the virus."

US children's hospitals overflowing with respiratory illness patients

Children with a specific respiratory illness have been overwhelming hospitals, mainly in the Southern and Northeastern areas of the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported recent data showing Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) cases have spiked over the past month. RSV usually causes children to contract the usual mild-cold symptoms, but the impact could be much worse for those immunocompromised or with a heart defect.
"We have observed a rise in RSV in multiple U.S. regions, and some regions are nearing seasonal peak levels," a CDC spokesperson told NBC News.

Comment: Since it is a common virus among children with usually mild symptoms, is all this a result of forcing people to wear masks, stay at home, and get vaccinated with dangerously mRNA shots?

Is this the price that the children have to pay for the most unscientific and inhuman behavior of the so-called "health authorities" in the past 2 years?
The children's immunity is so compromised that they can't fight even ordinary cold live viruses now.

We knew that so-called antiCovid measures will eventually lead to what we can see today among children. Many real scientists were alarmed and tried to publicly speak about that, but the psychopathic elites masked as health authorities were just fulfilling their Covid agenda.

Today, about two years after the start of the plandemic, they are still forcing people and children to mandatory take dangerous and ineffective mRNA injections.

One in every 500 small children who receive the Pfizer vaccine are hospitalised by it, study finds

One in every 500 children under five years who received the Pfizer mRNA Covid vaccine were hospitalised with a vaccine injury, and one in 200 had symptoms ongoing for weeks or months afterwards, a study has found.

The study published in JAMA included 7,806 children aged five or younger who were followed up of for an average of 91.4 days following their first Pfizer vaccination. It was a retrospective cohort study done as an authenticated online survey (response rate 41.1%) in spring 2022 which included parents or caregivers who registered children for SARS-CoV-2 vaccination in outpatient care facilities in Germany. It compared the adverse events to those of the same children with other vaccinations in order to control for over-reporting.

It concluded that the symptoms reported after Pfizer vaccination were "comparable overall" to those for other vaccines. Let's see.

Lockdown's collateral cancer timebomb: 40 thousand tumours were 'missed' during first year of Covid pandemic, top experts fear this is just 'the tip of the iceberg'

Almost 40,000 cancers went undiagnosed during the first year of Covid, according to official statistics which lay bare the 'true and catastrophic impact' of the pandemic.

Just 290,000 people in England were told they had cancer in 2020, down by roughly a tenth on one year earlier — the biggest drop logged since records began half a century ago. It was also the fewest annual diagnoses in a decade.

It means 100 fewer Britons daily were told they had cancer, equating to one every 13 minutes — prompting fears of a cancer timebomb. Half of the missed tumours are thought to be prostate and breast cancers.


Why I'm an abolitionist

I. The best vaccine data set in the world

The Bandim Health Project (BHP) in Guinea-Bissau (west Africa) has the best data set in the world on vaccine benefits and harms. Founded in 1978 by legendary Danish doctor and anthropologist Peter Aaby, the Bandim Health Project is a collaboration between the Ministry of Public Health in Guinea-Bissau, the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark, and researchers affiliated with the University of Southern Denmark and Aarhus University. BHP monitors and studies the health of more than 200,000 people in urban and rural Guinea-Bissau. They have datasets going back decades that enable them to measure long-term health outcomes based on vaccination status and they are willing to ask the hard questions that others dare not broach.

Dr. Aaby was one of the first scholars to study the non-specific effects of vaccines and he has become the world leader in the field. For over a century it was assumed that a vaccine only had an effect on the specific disease that was targeted. Dr. Aaby's research shows that vaccines change the immune system in ways that are unexpected. There are positive non-specific effects when a particular vaccine changes the immune system in ways that also provide protective effects against other diseases and negative non-specific effects when a vaccine changes the immune system in ways that leave one more vulnerable to other diseases.

Dr. Aaby's research in the late 1970s showed large positive effects from a measles vaccine. Children in Guinea-Bissau vaccinated against measles not only developed fewer cases of measles, they also died less frequently from other diseases as well. But in 1989, the W.H.O. introduced a new measles vaccine. Dr. Aaby and his team discovered negative non-specific effects from this formulation — girls vaccinated with the new measles vaccine died at twice the rate as unvaccinated girls.

Dr. Aaby brought his findings to the W.H.O. but it took three more years and an additional study by a team of U.S. researchers in Haiti that confirmed Dr. Aaby's original findings for the vaccine to be withdrawn.
