UK: Since the vaccine rollout there has been an inexorable rise in excess mortality

Life expectancy fell by more than six months compared to 2019 for 22 of the 29 countries that took part in a study.
In a previous article I highlighted how studying core non-respiratory mortality (NRM) trends, which have been very stable over the last 10 years or so, can provide a useful yardstick to measure any kind of extraordinary change that might occur.

Since the vaccine rollout there have indeed been radical changes to this metric, so as we approach the halfway mark of 2023 I thought an update was warranted. Unfortunately there is still no evidence of any real slowdown of this alarming development.

Here is a chart which shows what has been happening with raw non-respiratory mortality data during the four Covid years. The years are each displayed with 13 data-points of four-weekly (monthly) aggregated figures.


Australia Ditched Moderna's COVID Vaccine for Kids Under 12 — But Why?

The Australian federal government this month updated its website to state that Moderna's Spikevax COVID-19 vaccine is "no longer available" for children under 12 — but there was no press release, no media coverage and no "dear doctor" letters.

This month, the Australian federal government updated its website to state that Moderna's Spikevax is "no longer available" for children under 12.

It comes only three months after AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine was discontinued in Australia. (The original Comirnaty [Pfizer] vaccines remain available for use for children under 12 in Australia.)

The updated website was inconspicuous; there was no press release, no media coverage, and no "dear doctor" letters.

"Save our supplements:" natural health stores and consumers oppose new Liberal gov regulations

One in 5 natural health product brands are seriously considering leaving Canada due to new proposed regulations on supplements, according to the Canadian Health Food Association.

Canadians who purchase natural health products and supplements such as multivitamins, probiotics, and herbal remedies may see large price increases and less variety because of the incoming rules imposed by the Trudeau government.

According to 2016 Health Canada data, 71% of Canadians are natural health product users.

Comment: With a statistic like that, there is no doubt it would not escape certain pharmaceutical interests who seem to hold the reins of government.

Comment: Bill C-47's Division 27 - Food and Drugs Act - Natural Health Products
The existing FDA provisions also include prohibitions on providing false or misleading information to the Minister, obligations on the part of holders of a clinical trial authorization to publish prescribed information concerning clinical trials, and obligations on the part of health care institutions to provide prescribed information to the Minister about serious adverse drug reactions or medical device incidents.
It may all sound reasonable on the surface, and yet within the backdrop of what unHealth Canada did and does when dealing with 'big' covid-pharmaceutical, it is simply a joke.

Malaria confirmed in Florida mosquitoes after several human cases

Multiple mosquitoes gathered by authorities in Florida's Sarasota County have tested positive for malaria at a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab, as the response has ramped up to stamp out further spread of the illness. Four locally-acquired cases of malaria were recently reported in Florida, along with one in Texas — the first known instances of the mosquito-borne illness being transmitted within the U.S. since 2003.

Three mosquitoes carrying the parasite that causes malaria were collected from the same woodlot, Sarasota County Mosquito Management Services told CBS News in a statement. They were among more than a hundred samples that have been shipped to the CDC for testing.

Local authorities have targeted their eradication efforts in that area to wipe out Anopheles mosquitoes, the insect that spreads malaria, through spraying efforts from trucks, aircraft and on foot.

"Efforts continue to test more Anopheles from all areas of concern as well as treatments," the county said.


Bill Gates pledges $400 Million to test new TB vaccine on 26,000 people in Africa and Southeast Asia

Bill gates TB vaccine
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Wellcome Trust on Wednesday announced plans to fund a phase 3 clinical trial for a tuberculosis (TB) vaccine that will be tested on 26,000 people at 50 sites in Africa and Southeast Asia over the next four to six years.

Gates committed $400 million to the trial and Wellcome — the largest funder of medical research in the U.K. and one of the largest in the world — committed an additional $150 million.

Comment: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have a long history of testing experimental vaccines on vulnerable third-world nations, and are rarely ever held accountable for the crimes they commit against the population:

Pfizer vaccine batches in the EU were placebos, say scientists

Scientists have uncovered startling evidence that a substantial portion of the batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine deployed in the European Union may in fact have consisted of placebos - and that the German regulator knew this and did not subject them to quality-control testing.

The scientists, Dr. Gerald Dyker, Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Ruhr University Bochum, and Dr. Jörg Matysik, Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Leipzig, are part of a group of five German-speaking scientists who have been publicly raising questions about the quality and safety of the BioNTech vaccine (as it is known in Germany) for the last year and a half.

They recently appeared on the Punkt.Preradovic online programme of the German journalist Milena Preradovic to discuss batch variability. Their starting point was the recent Danish study showing enormous variation in the adverse events associated with different batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, or BNT162b2 per its scientific codename. The below figure from the Danish study illustrates this variation.
It shows that the batches used in Denmark, which are represented by the points in the graph, essentially break down into three groups.


Finally: Soft drink sweetener aspartame set to be declared 'possibly carcinogenic' by WHO cancer agency

Aspartame is used in products such as Coca-Cola diet drinks, Extra chewing gum and some Snapple drinks

One of the world's most common artificial sweeteners is set to be declared a possible carcinogen next month by a leading global health body, according to two sources with knowledge of the process, pitting it against the food industry and regulators.

Aspartame, used in products from Coca-Cola diet drinks to Mars' Extra chewing gum and some Snapple drinks, will be listed in July as "possibly carcinogenic to humans" for the first time by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the World Health Organisation's (WHO) cancer research arm, the sources said.

The IARC ruling, finalised earlier this month after a meeting of the group's external experts, is intended to assess whether something is a potential hazard or not, based on all the published evidence.

Serious adverse events from Pfizer's mRNA vaccine are not "rare"

serious adverse events
Drug regulators and public health agencies have saturated the airways with claims that serious harms following covid vaccination are "rare."

But there has been very little scrutiny of that claim by the media, and I could not find an instance where international agencies actually quantified what they meant by the term "rare" or provided a scientific source.
covid vaccine
The best evidence so far, has been a study published in one of vaccinology's most prestigious journals, where independent researchers reanalysed the original trial data for the mRNA vaccines.

The authors, Fraiman et al, found that serious adverse events (SAEs) - i.e. adverse events that require hospitalisation - were elevated in the vaccine arm by an alarming rate - 1 additional SAE for every 556 people vaccinated with Pfizer's mRNA vaccine.


RFK Jr. answers medical freedom leaders' questions: "How would you fix U.S. health policy?"

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Tuesday hosted a roundtable discussion with leading critics of prevailing health policy who debated topics ranging from public health agency capture to climate change.

Approximately 11,000 viewers watched live as Dr. Pierre Kory, Maureen McDonnell, Mikki Willis, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Patrick Gentempo, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Sayer Ji and Del Bigtree asked Kennedy, founder and chairman on leave from Children's Health Defense (CHD), a series of questions about how his administration would address key issues of concern to the medical freedom movement.

"This is the moment when the collapsing center, the disintegrating center, the dysfunctional health system finally opens up and what has so long been 'alternative' might become a new mainstream that could transform the health of this country," roundtable facilitator and author Charles Eisenstein said, kicking off the discussion.

Comment: RFK Jr.'s stance against the medical-industrial complex and his insistence on spreading truth paints him as a genuine threat against the establishment. It will be very interesting to see how far he progresses towards the 2024 elections, given that his position on both domestic and foreign issues appears to be diametrically opposed to many other candidates in his party. One thing is for sure... he will need to be very careful in the coming years so that he doesn't suffer the same fate as his father and uncle.
