Patients went untreated during the Covid pandemic, missing out on statins and blood pressure pills

Sir Chris Whitty has warned that thousands of middle-aged people are now dying of heart conditions after many were reluctant to bother the NHS during the pandemic.

This year has seen a higher number of deaths than normal from preventable conditions as many have missed out on statins or pills for blood pressure amid lockdowns. As of now, there are currently 800 more people dying each week over normal levels, and only half of that is due to Covid, The Times has reported.

While the reasonings for these deaths are still unclear, the chief medical officer has now alerted the Government about how barriers to accessing medication may have contributed.

Comment: Or possibly, how about the most pervasive medical 'treatment' offered in the last two years?

A very dangerous form of tolerance

When the announcement was made that vaccines would be available for Covid-19 by the end of 2020, even as someone with no training in immunology, virology or vaccinology, three basic questions raised the alarm for me:
  1. Since the Infection Fatality Rate for Covid-19 was so small (0.096% according to the British Government), and skewed towards a demographic above the average age of mortality, why on earth would we need to inject whole populations?
  2. Since vaccines normally take years before they come on the market, how did the manufacturers of these products come up with them in so short a timescale, with one particular manufacturer, which had never brought a single medical product to market before, designing its product within 48 hours?
  3. Since normal vaccines take 10-15 years of safety data before they are allowed to be given to people, how did the manufacturers manage to circumvent time itself to understand the safety of these products in the mid to long-term.

CDC issues 'wake-up call' as Type 2 diabetes on track to surge 700% in young Americans

The number of young Americans with Type 2 diabetes is projected to skyrocket nearly 700% by 2060
The number of young Americans with Type 2 diabetes is projected to skyrocket nearly 700% by 2060 if current upward trends continue unchecked, according to a "startling" new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes of Health.

Meanwhile, a spike of up to 65% in young people with Type 1 diabetes is likely, according to the new study published in the American Diabetes Association's medical journal.

"This new research should serve as a wake-up call for all of us," Dr. Debra Houry, acting principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a statement. "It's vital that we focus our efforts to ensure all Americans, especially our young people, are the healthiest they can be."

More than 37 million Americans — about 1 in 10 — already have incurable diabetes, making it the seventh leading cause of death in the nation. The average medical expenses for those living with it can tap out at $16,752 a year, according to the most recent ADA data.

Comment: Not a surprise for those with eyes to see. The seismic shifts in diet people have been led to make over the last century has caused massive damage to their health. And to add another cause on top of that, studies from nearly a year ago were reporting pancreatic damage from the jab:

Pfizer's shots aren't safe and were never shown to be

covid vaccine
Contrary to the official narrative (and hence popular belief), the COVID shots have no demonstrated safety. In Episode 298 of The Highwire, Del Bigtree interviews attorney Aaron Siri about the various lawsuits his firm has brought to reverse COVID jab mandates.

Siri describes a recent deposition of Dr. Kathryn Edwards, a world-leading vaccinologist who sat on Pfizer's data safety monitoring board (DSMB). This five-member committee oversaw the safety of Pfizer's jab. A DSMB is supposed to be an independent group of experts, whose responsibility it is to monitor patient safety and treatment efficacy data while a clinical trial is ongoing.

Steve Kirsch: Do vaccines cause autism? It sure looks like it to me

vaers autism
This one VAERS query which took me all of 10 seconds to do is all you need to know.

And do you see the most interesting thing in this chart?

The COVID19 vaccine isn't associated with a single case of autism! However, upon further investigation, that's because the symptom Autism is now entered into VAERS as Autism Spectrum Disorder. There were just 34 cases.

For the MMR vaccine, however the numbers are significantly higher than for other vaccines.

The analysis needs to be a bit more subtle that this one graph (we have to normalize by the number of doses), but the signal is just too big to ignore.

Andrew Wakefield was right. This is why the CDC ordered William Thompson to destroy all data linking vaccines and autism. Because they don't want you to ever find out.

FDA recalls blood pressure medication over cancer risks

quinapril
Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. is recalling four lots of its blood pressure medication, Quinapril Tablets, because of an impurity known as nitrosamine being found in recent testing of the product, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The FDA stated that no illness related to the medication has yet been reported and that the marketing of the Quinapril tablets ended in September. Quinapril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor that is used to treat hypertension in order to lower blood pressure.

The tablets were contaminated by substances known as nitrosamines, which the FDA reports are commonly found in food and water. These impurities are found in meats, dairy products and vegetables, and can increase a person's risk of developing cancer when faced with prolonged exposure, according to the FDA.

Comment: Back in March, Pfizer also recalled 3 different blood pressure medications, also due to the presence of nitrosamines. And last year, Pfizer again recalled an anti-smoking drug for the presence of the same ingredient. In fact, it seems a number of different drugs and food products have been recalled for nitrosamine contamination.

The government reports that inadvertently told the truth about COVID vaccine failure

COVID vaccines
As I write these words I see that daylight is dimming, reminding me that it is the shortest day of the year. The winter solstice traditionally marks the start of the 10 day period when we take time off work to visit relatives and engage in general revelry before the arrival of the annual 'collapse of the NHS' that'll take us through to the start of springtime. This year to join in with relative newcomer COVID-19 once again demonstrating its ability to re-infect everyone, we've got an influenza outbreak that looks set to rival that of 2010-11, high incidence of RSV, Strep-A threatening the old and young and perhaps a touch of human metapneumovirus to keep us on our toes. In the past few years we've also had a new tradition, where a senior representative of the U.K.

Government is chosen to tell everybody to refrain from enjoying themselves over the holiday period in order to save the NHS, and to remind all to try to receive as many vaccines as their arms can handle - we've not had this yet this year, but I note that there's still time for our authorities to slip it in before Christmas Eve. Given the imminent collapse of the NHS, perhaps it is a good time to discuss how well the Covid vaccines have been helping to reduce infections, hospitalisations and deaths from Covid, according to the data in the UKHSA's Vaccine Surveillance Report.

Comment: At this point it is clear that the COVID vaccines posed far more risks than any purported benefit, and were never intended to prevent transmission of infection. See also:

"Unexpected": MRNA vaccines increase risk of contracting COVID-19; each booster shot raises risk even more in study of 51,000 Cleveland Clinic workers

CDC  Umbrella

A stunning pre-print study by the Cleveland Clinic published Monday at medRxiv shows that MRNA vaccines raise the risk of contracting COVID-19 and that each MRNA vaccine booster increases the risk of contracting COVID-19, while those who have not received any MRNA vaccine have the lowest risk of contracting COVID-19. While the increased risk was relatively minimal, the result is the opposite of how the vaccines have been sold and mandated by government authorities. The highest risk was for those who received more than three vaccines.

The study was reported by the Cleveland Clinic's Nabin K. Shrestha, Patrick C. Burke, Amy S. Nowacki, James F. Simon and Amanda Hagen, Steven M. Gordon.

Quote from the study: "The association of increased risk of COVID-19 with higher numbers of prior vaccine doses in our study, was unexpected."

Comment: Research aside, the CDC and the FDA have an ongoing agenda to sell. Facts just get in the way.

The 'science' behind the UK recommended alcohol limit of 14 units a week is predictably awful

Alcohol

Before you go and make Christmas more miserable than it need be, it is worth taking the following into consideration.

A committee that was set up to determine safe drinking levels published a report that stated the safe drinking level for men was 28 units of alcohol per week (roughly three bottles of wine) and for women it was 21 units (roughly two).

A member of the committee, Richard Smith, the former editor of the British Medical Journal, later said that they couldn't actually find any scientific evidence to justify these limits but thought they ought to publish something as that was what they had been tasked with so they just "plucked the figure out of the air".


Comment: This is how most public health recommendations work, when the justification isn't monetary in nature.


Some time later, the safe drinking levels per week were reduced to 21 units for men and 14 units for women. Now the safe limits are 14 units per week regardless of whether someone is male or female.

Perhaps this has been done in the name of equality or to make it easier for men to switch genders and become women without worrying about the reduced alcohol limit.

The most charitable explanation for this absurdly low level is that the nanny state knows we are all going to exceed the recommended level regardless of where it's set so they set it low to keep alcohol consumption down. Their intention was to make us feel so guilty we become abstemious instead of rampant alcoholics.

Comment: Pretty much all the science connecting most levels of drinking to any form of ill health is bunk, i.e., there is no connection. Iain McGilchrist summarizes and analyzes this evidence in an appendix in his book The Matter with Things. The main conclusions: there is no known risk, and perhaps even some benefits, associated with responsible drinking.
