Three vaccine doses increase infection risk by up to 27%, study finds

Three doses of the Moderna Covid vaccine increase your risk of Omicron infection by up to 27%, a study has found.

The pre-print study (not yet peer-reviewed) was funded by Moderna itself and partly designed by employees of Moderna as well as involving researchers from Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. The study's reporting of poor outcomes for the original vaccine may be understood in the context of Moderna now having a 'bivalent vaccine' which targets Omicron.

The study used a test-negative case-control design to evaluate the Moderna Covid vaccine's effectiveness against infection and hospitalisation with Omicron subvariants. It included 30,809 test-positive and 92,427 test-negative individuals aged over 18 years tested during the first half of 2022. Results were adjusted for potential confounders such as age, sex and comorbidities.

Comment: We'd be willing to bet it's the latter "more general inhibition of the immune system." Remember a couple of months back when the vaccines were being tied to acquired immunodeficiency? See: See also:


Not a placebo: Scientific evidence exists for homeopathy

Getting through the most difficult times of COVID, it has become increasingly clear that the key to enhancing our good health is by boosting and balancing our own immunity. We are not necessarily promoting the precise therapies of homeopathy, but rather offering a different angle of understanding the subtleness and multi-faceted nature of the human body.

An article titled "Homeopathy" published in 1989 in Yoga Journal described one case in which a woman suffering from lupus was cured by homeopathy.

After years of unsuccessful conventional treatment, the lady enlisted the help of a homeopathic physician. The first step was to treat her drug dependency and relieve her pericarditis. She was prescribed a homeopathic dose of Cactus grandiflorus, which would produce heart palpitations and depression in healthy people. However, in her case, the Cactus grandiflorus reduced the inflammation caused by pericarditis.

After realizing his COVID-19 booster shot may have sent his cancer into overdrive, Michel Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of immunology and pharmacotherapy at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, said going public with the information was the "right thing to do."

Michel Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of immunology and pharmacotherapy at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, suspects his third dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine may have sent his cancer into overdrive.

Goldman, 67, is one of Europe's best-known champions of medical research and a lifelong promoter of vaccines.

Pfizer docs & official real-world data prove COVID vaccines are already causing mass depopulation

Covid-19 vaccination is causing mass depopulation.

This is an extremely bold claim to make.

But unfortunately, this bold claim is backed up by a mountain of evidence contained in the confidential Pfizer documents and official Government data from around the world.

The world is at a crossroads, and the elite has two choices. They sustain millions or even billions of people with financial support and help to ensure they survive and live quality lives. Or, they set about to depopulate the world.

Unfortunately, evidence suggests they chose the depopulation route a while ago, and their plan to do so is already in motion.

Here is that sinister and alarming evidence.


The growing global reliance on antidepressants

According to the latest OECD data, Iceland continues to have one of the highest levels of antidepressant use in the world - with an average consumption of 16 daily doses per 100 inhabitants in 2021.

In general, the northern countries are among the biggest consumers, with Canada and Sweden also showing a ratio of over 10 doses per 100 inhabitants per day.

Worth noting however is the absence of the United States from the data.

As Statista's Martin Armstrong shows in the infographic below, antidepressant use has become more widespread all around the world, with major increases from 2015 to 2020 or 2021 observed in Iceland, Portugal and Sweden, as well as Belgium and Greece.

FDA wants to update definition for 'healthy' claims on food labels

A new Food and Drug Administration proposed rule, "Food Labeling: Nutrient Content Claims; Definition of Term Healthy," released on September 28, would offer new guidance to brands who label their products as "healthy" options. The FDA is looking to regulate the use of the word because of the rise of diet-related illnesses in the U.S.

"In the current marketplace, about 5 percent of all packaged foods are labeled as 'healthy,'" the FDA writes in the proposal. "Because nutrition science has evolved over time, updating the definition of the implied nutrient content claim 'healthy' to closely align with nutrition science underpinning the Dietary Guidelines, 2020-2025 will better inform consumers who are selecting those products to choose a more healthful diet, which may result in lower incidence of diet-related chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes."

So what does this mean? Let's say you're walking down the cereal aisle in the grocery store. Dozens of products have the word "healthy" stamped on their boxes in bold lettering, based on their nutrition claims, whether that be no cholesterol or that it's multi-grain. That's no longer enough, according to the FDA. If the proposal becomes an official rule, the cereal would have to have a certain amount of whole grains as well as low counts of saturated fats, sodium and added sugars. If it meets the quality standards, the cereal would then be allowed to have an official FDA-approved "healthy" marker.

Comment: Hilarious. In other words, this makes it illegal to label actually healthy foods healthy. There's nothing wrong with saturated fats or sodium.

Nuts and seeds, fatty fish such as salmon, certain oils and water are currently categories of food that would not be able to be labeled as healthy with this proposed definition. But the FDA notes that these products can be part of a healthy dietary pattern and therefore can still qualify to be labeled as "healthy."

Comment: This is the totalitarian mindset inherent in the scientific worldview: full of arrogance, self-certainly, and the tendency to act like an overbearing mother. Not only that, they're wrong.


Deadly ebola-like virus SHFV 'poised for spill over' into humans, new study claims

Simian hemorrhagic fever virus

Experts at the University of Colorado Boulder are raising the alarm due to SHFV's 'compatibility… with humans'. In a lab study, they found virus is able to latch on to a human receptor with ease and make copies of itself
Scientists fear they've found the next big pandemic threat — a virus that lives in African monkeys.

Simian hemorrhagic fever virus (SHFV) causes devastating Ebola-like symptoms including internal bleeding and kills virtually every primate it infects.

The virus hijacks the immune system, disabling key defense mechanisms and breaking the body down cell by cell.

No cases have been detected in humans yet but it is 'poised for a spillover', according to US researchers.

By developing tests and monitoring the virus now 'the global health community could potentially avoid another pandemic', they said.

Comment: As has been seen during the collapse of previous civilizations - amidst overwhelming incompetence and corruption in government, endless war, societal upheaval, extreme weather events, famine, ill health, and so on - a virus will indeed likely appear on the scene soon enough, but, for a number of reasons, as detailed in the links below, it's probably not going to be SHFV: Also check out SOTT radio's: Behind the Headlines: Who was Jesus?

This kind of food shrinks your brain

Eating fast food — the epitome of highly processed "fake" foods — can have lasting ramifications on your brain health, so much so that researchers at Australian National University suggested you can cause "irreversible" damage by the time you reach middle age, just by eating a fast-food diet and not staying active.

If you are middle-aged and haven't been eating the best, don't panic — you can start making healthier changes starting today. However, the new study is eye-opening, once again hitting home the importance of healthy eating when it comes to keeping your mind strong as you age.

Fast Food Increases Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

In a review by the scientists in the featured study, they stated that people today are consuming about 650 Kilocalories more daily than they were in the 1970s — an amount equivalent to a fast-food meal consisting of a burger, fries and soft drink. (A Kilocalorie, or Kcal, is equal to 1 Calorie, with a capital "C," while 1,000 calories with a lowercase "c" equal 1 Kilocalorie.) This amount is about one-quarter of the recommended daily food energy needs for men and just under one-third for women.


Lasting brain impacts from COVID-19 are equivalent to decades of aging

Danilo Vitorovic, MD, a neurologist at Loma Linda University Health, supports claims that severe COVID-19 may age the brain by decades. "It's quite devastating to see these effects on the younger population."

Brain fog, anxiety, and sleep disturbances are some long-haul COVID-19 symptoms, but recent studies have found that severe COVID-19 can cause lasting cognitive and mental health problems. Vitorovic says it's important to understand that the virus is not in the brain, but instead, the brain is reaping the consequences of severe COVID-19-associated whole-body inflammation.

The brain aging process is driven at the cellular level by molecular changes that slowly accumulates with age. The changes are associated with increased inflammation, the tendency of neurons to die, and decreased ability to form new connections between neurons in the brain. Although cells possess mechanisms to repair or remove damage, they are not 100% efficient, and their efficiency declines with age.
The detrimental effects of severe COVID-19 infection can induce the same molecular signatures of the natural aging process in the frontal cortex and on cognitive function.

Vaccination increases infection risk by 44%, Oxford study finds

mrna vaccines
Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine make you 44% more likely to be infected, a study from Oxford University has found, contradicting the basis of global vaccine policy, which assumes vaccination significantly cuts incidence and transmission.

The study, published in the Lancet, looked at all infections reported in England among adults registered at a medical practice from December 8th 2020 to November 17th 2021, meaning it spanned the Alpha and Delta periods. It used a case-control design to estimate vaccine effectiveness, allowing potential confounding factors such as age, sex and underlying conditions to be controlled for, while individuals with prior infection were excluded.

The results for effectiveness against positive Covid test (i.e., reported infection, which were found buried away in the supplementary appendix) are shown below.
vax study
I've highlighted in yellow three key figures. The top two show that in the two weeks following the first jab individuals were three to four times more likely to test positive for Covid than their unvaccinated counterparts. This is further confirmation of the post-jab spike in infections that has often been noted and which there is evidence is a result of the vaccination temporarily reducing immunity.
