'Millions may be at risk': Houston hit with 'alarming' syphilis outbreak

syphilis blood vial
Health officials in Houston, Texas, are grappling with a syphilis outbreak among the population.

The city's health department reported Thursday that there was a 128 percent increase in cases of the illness among women in the area and "a nine-fold rise in congenital syphilis in Houston and Harris County."

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that could have serious complications if an individual leaves it untreated, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

How a highly effective vaccine turns into a mediocre vaccine - or worse

Fourth dose for a 90-year-old in Netanya, Israel
Detected fraudulence aside, there is no stronger criticism of a study than refuting the key result by using the study data. That opportunity does not arise often.

I present a striking example, pertaining to a study from Israel. Trying to be methodical, my article is somewhat on the long side, but the implications at the end are radical and broad.

Goldin et al. estimated the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine on several Covid-related outcomes, including death, in residents of long-term care facilities in Israel (mean age of 83 years). The large cohort (over 43,000) was heavily skewed towards vaccinated residents (90%). Only about 4,000 residents were not vaccinated.

Using a statistical method called survival analysis, the authors reported two age-adjusted values of vaccine effectiveness (VE) against Covid-related death:
Skipping ten days after the first dose, VE was 72%.
Skipping about seven days after the second dose, VE was 85%.
Goldin et al. also analyzed all-cause death as an endpoint, which many researchers have omitted. Most important, two of their figures (below) show the cumulative number of Covid deaths and all deaths at several time points — from which we can compute the cumulative number of non-Covid deaths. The latter data has been consistently hidden in studies of vaccine effectiveness.

Comment: Correct interpretation is the key. This is one example coming to light.


Aspartame is a 'possible' carcinogen: the science behind the decision

© BSIP SA/Alamy
Aspartame is used to sweeten thousands of food and drink products.
More research is needed to investigate a potential link between the common sweetener and cancer.

The cancer-research arm of the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified the low-calorie sweetener aspartame as 'possibly carcinogenic'.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France, said its decision, announced on 14 July, was based on limited evidence for liver cancer in studies on people and rodents.

However, the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) said that recommended daily limits for consumption of the sweetener, found in thousands of food and drink products, would not change.

"There was no convincing evidence from experimental or human data that aspartame has adverse effects after ingestion, within the limits established by previous committee," said Francesco Branca, director of the WHO's Department of Nutrition and Food Safety, at a press conference on 12 July in Geneva, Switzerland.

Comment: There is a massive amount of research clearly showing the dangers of aspartame and other chemical sweeteners. They just aren't from the approved sources. Big Pharma and Big Ag are able to shut out these studies from the mainstream


Did covid injections save lives?

covid vaccine
The benefits claimed from the covid injections (now reduced to an assertion that they prevent severe disease and deaths - claims that infections or transmission are reduced having been jettisoned) are heavily dependent on a measure of the number of deaths per case. Unfortunately, due to inconsistencies in the way "cases" are measured this data has to be taken with a pinch of salt. Furthermore, there is no historic data on how data on cases changed over time for previous respiratory viruses. Having a disproportionate number of cases per deaths for a third wave of an influenza variant might be the norm. No-one knows. All that we do know is that historically waves of hospitalizations and deaths for influenza have been of a similar size and duration each year.

Joel Smalley has analysed the data from Florida and has broken it down by age group. Here are the death curves for the over 65s in Florida. It is a repeating pattern.

Why the COVID-19 vaccines could never prevent transmission

covid vaccine
Recently, the lies conducted to push the vaccines have been brought back to the public's attention. This is partly because of the numerous videos now circulating that show just how many times a spokesman for them contradicted himself while making false promises about the vaccines to sell them to the American public on national television (which he later denied ever claiming) and partly because recent FOIA disclosers again proved our officials who pushed the vaccines were not transparent with the public:
Emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request show that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and former NIH Director Francis Collins were aware of, and discussed, "breakthrough cases" of COVID in January 2021 — right when the vaccines became widely available. In her email, Walensky says that "clearly," it is an "important area of study," links to a study raising the issue, and assures the person she is sending it to that Dr. Anthony Fauci is looped into these conversations.

However, in public, Walensky was saying something quite different. Two months after discussing this data, she said vaccinated people "don't carry the virus" and "don't get sick." In a congressional hearing, after it became clear people were able to get infected with COVID even after receiving the vaccine, she defended her original statements by claiming it was true at the time she said it — namely, for the strands we were dealing with in early 2021.


Zero Amish children diagnosed with cancer, diabetes or autism

amish children
A comprehensive study has found that no Amish children have been diagnosed with chronic conditions that impact the rest of America.

Across America, the current population of Amish people is quickly approaching 400,000.

The largest concentrations of Amish citizens are 90,000 in Pennsylvania and 82,000 in Ohio.

Amish communities have settled in as many as 32 U.S. states.

Families have an average of 7 kids so the Amish population is growing rapidly.

45% of US drinking water contaminated with 'forever chemicals' that lead to infertility, cancer, hormone issues: report

tap water chemical USA map
In a study released by the US Geological Survey (USGS) on Wednesday, harmful per- and polyfluorene alkyl substances (PFAS) are estimated to contaminate at least 45 percent of drinking water in the United States, with most of the concentration near urban areas.

According to the USGS, PFAS are synthetic chemicals used in a wide array of commonly used items such as non-stick pans, fire extinguisher foam, food packaging products that are grease resistant, and more. They take a long time to break down and are commonly referred to as "forever chemicals."

The study tested 716 different locations across the country and found about 75 percent of tap water in urban areas and 25 percent of rural areas with PFAS tested in the tap water. There are over 12,000 types of PFAS, and the study only tested 32 of them as not all can be detected with current tests. Areas with higher concentrations include the Great Plains, the Great Lakes, the Eastern Seaboard, and Central and Southern California.

After long silence on 'Long Vax,' Science Magazine links autoimmune disorders to COVID shots

children's health defence
Mainstream publications and regulatory agencies have buckled to public pressure to admit the COVID-19 vaccine can cause injuries such as myocarditis and pericarditis — but until recently, they've published little or nothing about the substantial number of people suffering from autoimmune disease after vaccination.

However, on Tuesday, the journal Science published an article confirming that COVID-19 vaccines are linked to autoimmune disorders, such as small fiber neuropathy and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

"We've been screaming from the top of our lungs about these things happening," Agnieszka Wilson, founder of #CanWeTalkAboutIt told The Defender. "And finally, slowly, it's being acknowledged."


Lancet study on Covid vaccine autopsies finds 74% were caused by vaccine - Study is removed within 24 hours

lancet website
A Lancet review of 325 autopsies after Covid vaccination found that 74% of the deaths were caused by the vaccine - but the study was removed within 24 hours.

The paper, a pre-print that was awaiting peer-review, is written by leading cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch and their colleagues at the Wellness Company and was published online on Wednesday on the pre-print site of the prestigious medical journal.

However, less than 24 hours later, the study was removed and a note appeared stating: "This preprint has been removed by Preprints with the Lancet because the study's conclusions are not supported by the study methodology." While the study had not undergone any part of the peer-review process, the note implies it fell foul of "screening criteria".

Comment: They're not even trying to hide their agenda at this point, resorting to naked censorship to hush up scientific findings that don't fit the agenda. The problem is that their 'sweeping under the rug' technique isn't working. People are noticing that every time a counter argument comes to light, it is censored. All they're really doing is raising the suspicions of the public more and more.

Unvaxxed Amish death rates 90 times lower than rest of America

A major study into the impact of the pandemic on Amish communities has found that Covid death rates among the traditionalist groups of citizens are 90 times lower than for the rest of America.

The main difference, the study revealed, is that Amish communities completely ignored the guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Amish families did not get vaccinated or wear masks, nor did they engage in lockdowns, social distancing, or any other type of restrictions.

But the separated communities didn't avoid catching the virus, however, as roughly 90% of the Amish have been infected with Covid.
