Mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile virus, dengue fever and Eastern equine encephalitis are on the rise during rainy season when these insects breed.
Argentina's Health Ministry on Sunday reported five people have died from Western Equine Encephalitis virus amid 39 cases of infection registered in five of the South American country's 24 provinces.

Cases have been concentrated mainly in the central region of the country, with 38 of the 39 infections registered in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Entre Rios and Cordoba, and one case in the northern province of Santiago del Estero.

Comment: WEE first reappeared in the news after Argentina detected it in a few horses, and quarantine measures were enforced in an attempt to prevent its spread. However, after just one human infection was reported a few months ago, 5 people are now dead.

Whilst it's clear the establishment is keen to foment hysteria around all kinds of viruses and diseases, one does wonder what impact hundreds of millions of people injected with experimental, immune-compromising injections will have on viral outbreaks such as this.

Bird flu is another zoonotic virus that has been reported, increasingly, over the past few years; the last year in particular, with tens of millions of birds, across the planet, culled as a result. And, despite the questionable mass culls, harsh quarantine measures, and bird flu vaccine program, spread does not appear to have slowed much; and more recently it was revealed that an outbreak occurred on a fully vaccinated duck farm in France.

Covid has exhausted itself - top Russian epidemiologist

Covid virus
Covid-19 has lost its pandemic potential in the years since it was flagged by the World Health Organization, Russia's former chief health inspector Gennady Onishchenko has said.

Onishchenko's statement comes after the Russian consumer rights and wellbeing watchdog Rospotrebnadzor stated earlier this month that the peak of Covid-19 infections had passed in Russia and that new mass vaccination campaigns were no longer necessary. It was noted, however, that people should nevertheless remain vigilant, as coronavirus cases still grow seasonally.

In an interview with RIA Novosti published on Thursday, Onishschenko, who is currently the deputy president of the Russian Academy of Education, acknowledged that over the years of the pandemic, up until the announcement of its conclusion by the WHO, the coronavirus had mutated and caused several serious waves of infections, including fatal ones.

"New strains may still appear, [the virus] is constantly mutating," the academic said. He added, however, that "this coronavirus, by all indications, has exhausted its pandemic potential."

128 pregnant women, 25 tots under age 2 given wrong RSV vaccines, CDC says

rsv vaccine
Nearly 130 pregnant women and 25 children under age 2 were given the wrong respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The children were mistakenly administered either Pfizer's Abrysvo or GSK's (formerly GlaxoSmithKline) Arexvy RSV vaccines. Both are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adults ages 60 and older โ€” but not for children or babies.

For babies, the CDC recommends a monoclonal antibody โ€” nirsevimab (Beyfortus) โ€” produced by AstraZeneca and Sanofi. The CDC also recommends Beyfortus for children ages 8-19 months who are at increased risk of severe RSV.

mRNA technology is the culprit behind faulty immune response, IgG4 study shows

MRNAvax

IgG4 refers to a special rare subclass of antibodies instructing our immune system to ignore a pathogen rather than fight it. We learned that repeat Covid vaccinations cause immune tolerance in boosted people, which makes them less able to fend off repeat infections.

While IgG4 antibodies may naturally appear in allergies due to repeat immune stimulations with allergens, they are inappropriate for replicating pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2.

What causes such dysfunctional antibodies to appear in Covid-boosted people? Was the IgG4 class switch mechanistically caused by repeat injections or by the nature of mRNA technology? In August of 2023, I suggested that the culprit may be continued production of spike protein encoded by the mRNA Covid vaccines.

'Futile and dangerous': Cameroon first of 20 African countries to roll out GSK's malaria vaccine for babies

malaria vaccine africa
Cameroon this week launched a campaign to vaccinate 250,000 babies, beginning at age 6 months, with GlaxoSmithKline's malaria vaccine โ€” a shot that even the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation said won't work.

Cameroon this week became the world's first country to routinely vaccinate children against malaria, using a shot that's only 30% effective and doesn't stop transmission.

The country plans to give the vaccine โ€” known as Mosquirix (RTS,S/AS01) โ€” to about 250,000 children by the end of 2025. The GlaxoSmithKline-produced shot, recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), requires four doses and provides protection against severe illness caused by one type of malaria parasite.

Comment: The fact that these Pharma-demons continue to use Africa as their own personal shoddy vaccine testing ground is disgusting. They should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

Why was the BioNTech/Pfizer mRNA vaccine not recalled in February 2021?

This is such a straightforward, open-and-shut case. At least it looks like one to me.

According to Stat News, on May 5, 2022, The J&J adenovirus Covid vaccine "was limited to people 18 and older who cannot take one of the other available vaccines for medical reasons, or who simply will not agree to be vaccinated with one of the messenger RNA vaccines made by Moderna and by Pfizer and its partner BioNTech."

The reason?
Peter Marks, the FDA's vaccines lead, told STAT the agency reached its decision after a recent review of the data on the vaccine revealed another person in this country had died after receiving it โ€” the ninth such death โ€” in the first quarter of the year.

[BOLDFACE ADDED]

"If we see deaths and there is an alternative vaccine that is not associated with deaths but is associated with similar efficacy...we felt it was time at this point to make a statement on the [product's] fact sheet that this was not a first-line vaccine," said Marks.

With one death for every 2 million doses given in this country, the FDA decided that is a risk most people don't need to take, Marks said.
Nine deaths.

Comment: Yet more evidence that they wanted the mRNA shots into as many arms as possible and weren't fond of the competition J&J lowering uptake numbers. Profits could explain it, but, again, was there another, more nefarious reason they wanted their experimental gene technology in every person on the planet?

'Hello, I'd like to eat a genetically modified animal today'

"Do you have one on the menu?"
GMO Chicken
© meatreality.org
I found an interesting section in an FDA report, "GMO Crops, Animal Food, and Beyond." The information is listed as current as of August 2022.
Are There GMO Animals in the Food Supply? Yes. FDA has approved an application allowing the sale of the AquAdvantage Salmon to consumers. The AquAdvantage Salmon has been genetically modified to reach an important growth point faster. FDA has also approved an alteration in the GalSafe pig for human food consumption and potential therapeutic uses. The GalSafe pig was developed to be free of detectable alpha-gal sugar on its cell surfaces. People with Alpha-gal syndrome (AGS) may have allergic reactions to alpha-gal sugar found in red meat (e.g., beef, pork, and lamb). FDA has determined that food from the AquAdvantage Salmon and the GalSafe pig are as safe and nutritious to eat as food from non-GMO salmon and pigs.
Sounds wonderful. Shall we try a bit of each? I've ways wanted to eat salmon that was engineered to grow faster than usual.

Perhaps we should read a piece in the Alaska Beacon first. Title: "Pushback continues against genetically modified salmon being raised at Indiana farm." October 10, 2023.
Engineered by biotech company AquaBounty Technologies Inc., the "AquAdvantage" salmon is the first such altered animal to be cleared for human consumption in the United States.

In 2018, the federal agency greenlit AquaBounty's sprawling Indiana facility, which as of last December was raising roughly 492 metric tons of salmon from eggs imported from Canada but is capable of raising more than twice that amount. The company is currently making improvements to its Indiana production facility. Once completed, salmon harvests are expected to increase.

During the 2023 Farm Aid concert site, organizers from Block Corporate Salmon traveled an hour north to AquaBounty's salmon growing facility where they sought to raise awareness about the "risks and harms" of genetically engineered fish.

"AquaBounty misrepresents its system to raise salmon in tanks that they claim will be recirculating water," said Jaydee Hanson, Policy Director of Center for Food Safety. "In fact, their operations literally mine water, foul it with salmon feces, and dump it into the nearest river. They have a serious problem of illness in their chronically inflamed fish. They are not disclosing how many antibiotics they use. Consumers don't need sick fish like these."

Earlier, in 2022, Block Corporate Salmon also released "AquaBounty Exposed," a report that outlined allegedly concerning conditions at AquaBounty's Albany facility.

Former employee Braydon Humphrey, who spoke at last month's news conference, shared more than 60 pages of photos and videos that he claims detail how AquaBounty "regularly violated food and worker safety standards, ignored animal welfare concerns, and caused environmental damage unbeknownst to the public and its investors."

"I was deeply disturbed by what I witnessed during my time at AquaBounty," said Humphrey, who worked as a tech at the Indiana facility from December 2018 to January 2020. "Among other atrocities, we saw high mortalities in densely packed fish tanks โ€” including common instances of AquAdvantage salmon dying from ruptured stomachs, caused by their artificially fast growth rate."
โ€” Waiter? I'll pass on the salmon. How about the rattlesnake fang sushi instead? I think it'll be safer.

Microplastics in food: A health hazard of epic proportions

There's a good chance you're eating plastic with virtually every meal, according to sobering findings from Consumer Reports. Their latest investigation into plasticizers, which are chemicals widely used to make plastic flexible, found the compounds in 84 out of 85 food and beverages tested.1

Perhaps most disconcerting, there was no rhyme or reason to the amount of plastic chemicals hiding in foods. Dairy products, ready-to-eat meals, canned or paper wrapped and even organics โ€” all were contaminated with plastic. Further, while food packaging is part of the problem, it's far from the only one. The human health implications of eating all this plastic are unprecedented.

Dodgy data: COVID vaccine clinical trials show counting window issues, exaggerating safety

Covid Vaccine
Everyone debating the merits of the COVID-19 vaccines needs to take these 4 journal articles into account. The Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice's hugely important unofficial series of articles on exaggerated COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness and safety claims, involving BMJ editor Peter Doshi and myself, has now concluded. The initial Fung, Jones, and Doshi paper outlines statistical biases, such as the case counting window bias, that likely lead to the COVID vaccines' effectiveness being exaggerated in observational studies. The subsequent paper by Lataster (that's me) then explained the situation is worse, as the case counting window bias is often accompanied by a definitional bias, and noted that this could exaggerate vaccine safety as well. Doshi and Fung then returned with a further paper indicating that numerous cases in the vaccinated were overlooked in the clinical trials, likely leading to exaggerated effectiveness estimates. The fourth and final article in this 'series', again by myself, notes that this also appears to apply to safety estimates in the clinical trials, whilst also confirming my earlier concerns about safety estimates in observational studies, and noting that the myocarditis issue alone could mean that the jabs are not worth the risk in the young and healthy. Highlights of the open access article (thanks again to the wonderful University of Sydney):

Israel approves sale of world's first lab-grown beef

An Israeli company has received preliminary approval from the government to sell the world's first steaks made from cultivated beef cells, the country's Health Ministry announced this week.

The ministry said the approval was part of a pilot program for alternative protein carried out by the Department of Food Risk Management. It also cited the growing global demand for "products of non-living origin," adding it is working to approve alternative food sources. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the development "a global breakthrough" and "important news for food security, environmental protection, and concern for animals."

Comment: Not only is it really disgusting, but the laborious production costs, which are demonstrably worse for the environment than cow farts, will ultimately make it so expensive that only rich people will be able to afford this crap. And then Israel of all countries? Wasn't that also the country that forced citizens to get vaccinated? And now they are feeding them lab cells?
