In 2020 a cell culture lab-study performed by a group of Icelandic scientists led by Dr. Einar Stefánsson, Professor of Medicine at the University of Iceland, showed that free fatty acids found in fish liver oil can quickly destroy viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19. The study was conducted in collaboration with U.S. partners. Laboratory results showed fish liver oil with 1% and 2% free fatty agents destroyed 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 within 10 minutes.

According to an article in Viðskiptablaðið in November 2020, the research, in collaboration with fish liver oil producer Lýsi hf. had been approved by the Scientific Ethics Committee and the first phase of the study was being planned with the participation of 30 infected individuals. Icelandic daily Fréttin recently contacted Professor Stefánsson for news of the project, but he said the research project had to be discontinued due to lack of funds.

According to Dr. Stefánsson, the Icelandic Centre for Research, RANNÍS, had approved a "substantial grant" to finance the study, but later the grant was withdrawn without explanation. He said there did not seem to be enough support from the scientific community for a study on the benefits of fish liver oil against viral infections, so unfortunately the project had to be cancelled.

Comment: Another promising treatment/solution revoked and blacklisted.

650 children suffer 'mysterious hepatitis of unknown origin', cases continue to soar across the planet, 58% of them in the UK & US

hepatitis children world

The mystery hepatitis has been spotted in the US, Western Europe and a handful of other countries. Globally, at least 12 youngsters have died and dozens needed liver transplants
Another 18 British children have fallen ill with the mystery hepatitis that has caused a spate of cases around the world.

Health officials announced the new cases today, bringing the cumulative UK total to 240 since the first was spotted in January.

Of the confirmed patients, 170 were in England, 32 in Scotland, 21 in Northern Ireland and 17 in Wales.

They are predominantly in children under five — but a 'small number' of children aged over 10 have also been struck down.

Scientists still do not know what is causing the life-threatening liver disease, but they say the chief culprit is a strain of the common cold.

Healthy young people are dying suddenly and unexpectedly from a 'mysterious' syndrome. Whatever could it be?

chest pain

People aged under 40 are being urged to have their hearts checked, because they may potentially be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) (pictured, woman experiencing chest pain while running).
People aged under 40 are being urged to have their hearts checked because they may potentially be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

The syndrome, known as SADS, has been fatal for all kinds of people regardless of whether they maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.

SADS is an 'umbrella term to describe unexpected deaths in young people', said The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, most commonly occurring in people under 40 years of age.

Comment: Anyone who can't see what's going on here is probably not the sharpest tool in the shed. The recent slate of articles appearing in the mainstream press about previously under-reported 'conditions' that make people drop dead unexpectedly is simply priming the audience to accept these deaths as possible. A few years ago, healthy adults dropping dead for no known reason was unheard of. What's changed?

Stop all Covid vaccine booster programmes now for safety reasons, says heart surgeon in Virology Journal

Are cracks beginning to appear in the mainstream Covid vaccine narrative?

Virology Journal has published a letter from a cardiovascular surgeon, Kenji Yamamoto, setting out the case for ceasing all Covid vaccine booster programmes on safety grounds, calling Covid vaccines a "major risk factor for infections in critically ill patients". His own cardiovascular surgery department at Okamura Memorial Hospital, Japan, has seen numerous complications in vaccinated patients, including some deaths, he says.

Dr. Yamamoto's major concern is the damaging impact of Covid vaccines on the immune system. He notes that a Lancet study from Sweden found negative vaccine effectiveness ("lower immune function") eight months after inoculation.

French court orders 4G antenna switch-off after 40 cows die, milk production falls 20%

cow 5G
A court in France has found in favour of a farmer who claimed that a 4G antenna was damaging his cows' health, and has ordered for the antenna to be switched off for two months.

The administrative court in Clermont-Ferrand (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes) ordered the switch-off after Frédéric Salgues, a farmer in Haute-Loire, said he suspected that it was damaging his herd's health.

The court said that "it is appropriate to order the temporary cessation of the operation of this antenna for a period of two months, taking into account its general impact, with monitoring, by the judicial expert, of the behaviour of the herd, and of the dairy cows in particular, during this period".

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome: because young people die, just like that

In the year of collapsing athletes, we now have the coincidental rise of SADS.

Naturally, its nothing to do with new large medical programs done for emergency use. We know that because of all the detailed human trial data that the FDA and company in question wanted to hide until 2096, and which we still haven't seen in full.

But if you hear of someone young and healthy dying there's a word for that now — "normal", I mean SADS.
Healthy young people are dying suddenly and unexpectedly from a mysterious syndrome - as doctors seek answers through a new national register

Daily Mail

People aged under 40 are being urged to have their hearts checked because they may potentially be at risk of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.The syndrome, known as SADS, has been fatal for all kinds of people regardless of whether they maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. The term is used when a post-mortem cannot find an obvious cause of death.

The US-based SADS Foundation has said that over half of the 4,000 annual SADS deaths of children, teens or young adults have one of the top two warning signs present. 'There are approximately 750 cases per year of people aged under 50 in Victoria suddenly having their heart stop (cardiac arrest),' a spokesperson said. 'Of these, approximately 100 young people per year will have no cause found even after extensive investigations such as a full autopsy (SADS phenomenon).'

Iceland‘s Minister of Healthcare receives first shipment of COVID-19 vaccines December 2020.
By the end of May 2022, COVID-19 deaths in Iceland were 153 in total. Based on figures from the Directorate of Health, published by the online daily Fréttin, 119 people died up to February 2022. Thirteen of those were double-vaccinated, 67 triple-vaccinated and 39 were unvaccinated. The Directorate of Health has refused to disclose the vaccination status of the 34 who have died since then.

Long Covid Study Shows High Rates of Serious Vaccine Side-Effects

Covid-19 Vaccine
In the short time available between the Depp-Heard case ending and the Queen's Jubilee festivities starting I thought I'd have a quick look at some of the scientific papers recently published about the longer term consequences of Covid, with consequential impact on how scared we should be of the disease and what efforts might be effective in protecting ourselves. In this article I will look in-depth at one which considers the impact of vaccination, and in a follow-up article I will look at the other four.

The paper I'm looking at in this article is the one by Al-Aly et al., published in Nature on May 25th, titled "Long Covid after breakthrough SARS-CoV-2 infection". This compared outcomes after Covid infection of almost 35,000 vaccinated U.S. veterans with a set of control groups. To make it clear, 'veterans' aren't, as a colleague of mine once thought, people that look after the health of animals, but instead are members of the U.S. armed forces after they finish active service. As a result, the study looks at individuals aged from approximately 40 to those in their 80's, and the group is biased towards males (though it does include many females).

It is important to note that the study looked at a wide variety of conditions that were present beyond 30 days after the individual's positive test for Covid. Thus the data shown in the paper, and reproduced below, don't include symptoms experienced during the actual acute disease stage of the infection, but they do include sequelae (disease after-effects) that started during the 30 days post-infection, but continued in the weeks and months after this point.

'First time this has happened': Cancer drug trial cures the disease in all 18 participants

colorectal cancer

A recent clinical trial of the drug dostarlimab, a monoclonal antibody, found that it virtually cured cancer in every participant
A new colorectal cancer drug has shocked researchers with how effective it is against the highly dangerous disease, as it virtually cured it in every member of a clinical trial.

Dostarlimab, a monoclonal antibody drug, smashed expectations in a recent trial sponsored by pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

A year after the trial's completion, each of the 18 participants had their disease go into complete remission, with doctors unable to find signs of the cancer in their body.

While the trial was small, it is game-changing, and sets up the drug as a potential cure for one of the most dangerous common cancers known.

New Lancet study destroys the CDC's justification for school mask mandates

Kids and Masks
The Lancet, a world-renown medical journal, is out with a new study debunking a highly-cited CDC study that was used to support mask mandates in schools.

Specifically, the study not only replicates the CDC study, which found a "negative association" between masks and pediatric cases of Covid-19, it also extends the study to include more districts over a longer period of time. In the end, the new study had nearly "six times as much data as the original study."

The study's findings:
"Replicating the CDC study shows similar results; however, incorporating a larger sample and longer period showed no significant relationship between mask mandates and case rates. These results persisted when using regression methods to control for differences across districts.

"Interpretation: School districts that choose to mandate masks are likely to be systematically different from those that do not in multiple, often unobserved, ways. We failed to establish a relationship between school masking and pediatric cases using the same methods but a larger, more nationally diverse population over a longer interval. Our study demonstrates that observational studies of interventions with small to moderate effect sizes are prone to bias caused by selection and omitted variables. Randomized studies can more reliably inform public health policy."
