COVID-19 vaccine benefits exaggerated, say experts

In February, Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt boasted that AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine offered "100% protection" against death in the primary analysis of phase III trials.

It was repeated by the CEO of AstraZeneca and uncritically reported by the mainstream media in what seemed to be an impressive achievement.

The published study in The Lancet, however, revealed a more nuanced picture.

The Taiwanese health authorities have suspended the administering of second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine for children aged between 12 and 17, citing concerns about an increased risk of heart inflammation.

A panel of experts made the decision to cease giving the jab to teens on Wednesday, pending further review, according to the country's Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head Chen Shih-chung. The health authority opted to call a halt to the second jab due to concerns about an increased risk of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the heart's outer lining).

The Ministry of Health and Welfare's Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices said it was suspending giving second doses of the inoculation to 12- to 17-year-olds for a two-week period. During that time, experts from the country's Centers for Disease Control will examine the 16 reported myocarditis cases among Taiwanese teens who received the jab.

France's public health authority has recommended people under 30 be given Pfizer's (PFE.N) Comirnaty COVID-19 vaccine when available instead of Moderna Inc's (MRNA.O) Spikevax jab, which carried comparatively higher risks of heart-related problems.

The Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS), which does not have legal power to ban or licence drugs but acts as an advisor to the French health sector, cited "very rare" risks linked to Myocarditis, a heart disease, that had shown up in recent data on the Moderna vaccine and in a French study published on Monday.

"Within the population aged under 30, this risk appears to be around five times lesser with Pfizer's Comirnaty jab compared to Moderna's Spikevax jab," HAS said in its opinion published on Monday.

The decision in Paris came after regulators in several other countries, including Canada, Finland and Sweden, had also taken a more defensive stance on Spikevax over heart-related safety concerns affecting younger people.

New VAERS analysis reveals hundreds of serious adverse events that the CDC and FDA never told us about

They missed hundreds of serious adverse events that are more elevated than myocarditis. A new VAERS analysis done by Albert Benavides blows the doors off the "safe and effective" narrative.

The CDC and FDA have said the vaccines are "safe and effective." They haven't found any serious issues with the COVID vaccines. Zero. Zip. Nada. It was the DoD that found myocarditis.

The evidence in plain sight shows that they are either lying or incompetent. Or both. But of course, the medical community is never going to call them on this.

So that's where our team of vaccine safety experts comes in; to reveal the truth about what is really going on.

In a brand new VAERS data analysis performed by our friend Albert Benavides (aka WelcomeTheEagle88), we found hundreds of serious adverse events that were completely missed by the CDC that should have been mentioned in the informed consent document that are given to patients. And we found over 200 symptoms that occur at a higher relative rate than myocarditis (relative to all previous vaccines over the last 5 years). All together, there were over 4,000 VAERS adverse event codes that were elevated by these vaccines by a factor of 10 or more over baseline that the CDC should have warned people about.

As of November 1, 2021, there have been more adverse events reported for the COVID vaccines than for all 70+ vaccines combined since they started tracking adverse events 30 years ago. That's a stunning statistic, nobody can deny it, but nobody in the mainstream medical community (or mainstream media) seems to care much. It's not even worth noting in passing. Wow.

Objective:Health - FDA Gives EUA to Pfizer Shot for 5-11 Year Olds

O:H header
The FDA in the US recently approved the Pfizer Covid vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 for emergency use authorization. This has left a number of people, those who still have the ability to think and aren't just driven by fear, to ask the question "is this really necessary?" or more accurately "isn't this dangerous?" As has been well-publicized, children aren't really affected by Covid to a large extent as there have only been 100 deaths in this age group since the beginning of the pandemic (all of them likely having commorbities).

Children don't really catch Covid, and when they do, they usually don't produce symptoms. Meanwhile, the chance of adverse reactions to the vaccine itself is, at the very least, not negligible. In fact, Dr. Toby Rogers recently conducted his own risk-benefit analysis (since Pfizer, the FDA and the CDC haven't bothered to do one) and found that the vaccine would kill 117 in order to save 1 life - and that was a conservative estimate.

Is this just a money grab or is there something more sinister going on here?

Return of scurvy under Tory rule as cases of Victorian illness double in decade

Deadly scurvy killed sailors.
Shadow Health Secretary Jonathan Ashworth said the huge rise in cases of Victorian illness scurvy, along with the tripling of hospital admissions for malnutrition since 2010, was 'a shameful indictment on a decade of the Tories'.

Cases of scurvy - a widespread illness in Victorian times - have more than doubled in a decade.

NHS Digital statistics also reveal hospital admissions for malnutrition have tripled since the Conservatives came to power in the 2010 election.

The increases coincide with soaring numbers of people relying on food banks in the wake of austerity policies.

Comment: How can any nation refer to itself as "first world" when they have over 10,000 reported cases of malnutrition and increasing cases of scurvy?

What's behind the strange drop in American body temperatures over the past 200 years? - new study

The human body is often said to rest at a healthy internal temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, or 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

This average was established two centuries ago in France, and yet in the meantime, it seems our 'normal' physiology has changed ever so slightly.

Early last year, researchers in the United States combed Civil War veteran records and national health surveys and found temperatures among men born at the turn of this century were 0.59 degrees Celsius cooler than those men born around two hundred years earlier.

Women, on the other hand, had seen a 0.32 degrees Celsius decline since the 1890s.

At the time, the authors suggested it might have something to do with inflammation due to disease, which is closely tied to body temperature. With the rise of modern medicine, we've seen a decline in chronic infections, and maybe, the authors suggested, this has chilled us out, so to speak.

Comment: One benefit of a higher internal body temperature is an increased ability to fight off viral infection, and in the first half of the 20th century mainstream medicine acknowledged its benefits and practised it in the form of pyrotherapy. Although it seems that this kind of therapy has been practised for hundreds - if not thousands - of years, one such method is cold therapy, like ice swimming, another is sauna.

Vaccine injury stories pour in after Israeli mom launches project to expose untold suffering

pfizer vaccine
A courageous woman has taken up the task of investigating and reporting injuries from the Pfizer COVID jab that the media have ignored in her home country of Israel, where the government has administered the shot almost ubiquitously.

Introducing herself as Avital, a mother of two boys, the brave Israeli woman said she has spoken with "hundreds of people" and "read thousands of testimonies" of people who have been adversely affected by the jab but who have been afraid to speak publicly "due to hostility around this subject."

"In the past months, I've been hearing about more and more people I know who experienced severe adverse effects shortly after receiving the Pfizer shot. I also noticed that no news company, journalist, reporter, or anyone investigated these events thoroughly and published the data," Avital said.

No surprise: New study shows dramatic decline in COVID vaccine effectivenes

As the Delta variant became the dominant strain of the coronavirus across the United States, all three COVID-19 vaccines available to Americans lost some of their protective power, with vaccine efficacy among a large group of veterans dropping between 35% and 85%, according to a new study.

Researchers who scoured the records of nearly 800,000 U.S. veterans found that in early March, just as the Delta variant was gaining a toehold across American communities, the three vaccines were roughly equal in their ability to prevent infections.

But over the next six months, that changed dramatically.

By the end of September, Moderna's two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, measured as 89% effective in March, was only 58% effective.

The effectiveness of shots made by Pfizer and BioNTech, which also employed two doses, fell from 87% to 45% in the same period.

And most strikingly, the protective power of Johnson & Johnson's single-dose vaccine plunged from 86% to just 13% over those six months.

Comment: Baloney. See comment above.

Gene common in south Asian people doubles risk of Covid death, study finds

A man holds his arm after receiving a dose of coronavirus vaccine in Mumbai, India.
Scientists have identified a gene that doubles the risks of respiratory failure and death from Covid and could explain why people of south Asian heritage are more vulnerable to the disease.

The gene, which changes the way the lungs respond to infection, is the most important genetic risk factor identified so far and is carried by roughly 60% of people with south Asian backgrounds, compared with 15% of those with white European backgrounds. The finding could partly explain the excess deaths seen in some communities in the UK and the impact of Covid-19 in the Indian subcontinent.

Prof James Davies, a geneticist at Oxford University's Radcliffe Department of Medicine and a senior author of the paper, said: "The genetic factor we have found explains why some people get very seriously ill after coronavirus infection ... There's a single gene that confers quite a significant risk to people of south Asian background."

Comment: Research showing how medications and illnesses affect the two genders and the various races of people differently is an area of research that is receiving increased attention. This study also highlights how risky global, blanket roll outs of these generic and experimental injections are:
