Microplastics found deep in lungs of living people for first time

microplastics

Microplastics now contaminate the entire planet, from the summit of Mount Everest to the deepest oceans.
Particles discovered in tissue of 11 out of 13 patients undergoing surgery, with polypropylene and PET most common

Microplastic pollution has been discovered lodged deep in the lungs of living people for the first time. The particles were found in almost all the samples analysed.

The scientists said microplastic pollution was now ubiquitous across the planet, making human exposure unavoidable and meaning "there is an increasing concern regarding the hazards" to health.

Samples were taken from tissue removed from 13 patients undergoing surgery and microplastics were found in 11 cases. The most common particles were polypropylene, used in plastic packaging and pipes, and PET, used in bottles. Two previous studies had found microplastics at similarly high rates in lung tissue taken during autopsies.

Comment: Everyone is tip-toeing around the most ubiquitous source of breathable microplastics currently available: covid masks. But there's plenty of anecdotal evidence they are as damaging to the lungs as asbestos ever was, and some were alert to the possibility very early on. The future of children's health is bleak.

Putting big bad pharma back on trial in the COVID-19 era

After graduating from Columbia University with a chemical engineering degree, my grandfather went on to work for Pfizer for almost two decades, culminating his career as the company's Global Director of New Products. I was rather proud of this fact growing up — it felt as if this father figure, who raised me for several years during my childhood, had somehow played a role in saving lives. But in recent years, my perspective on Pfizer — and other companies in its class — has shifted. Blame it on the insidious big pharma corruption laid bare by whistleblowers in recent years. Blame it on the endless string of big pharma lawsuits revealing fraud, deception, and cover-ups. Blame it on the fact that I witnessed some of their most profitable drugs ruin the lives of those I love most. All I know is, that pride I once felt has been overshadowed by a sticky skepticism I just can't seem to shake.

In 1973, my grandpa and his colleagues celebrated as Pfizer crossed a milestone: the one-billion-dollar sales mark. These days, Pfizer rakes in $81 billion a year, making it the 28th most valuable company in the world. Johnson & Johnson ranks 15th, with $93.77 billion. To put things into perspective, that makes said companies wealthier than most countries in the world. And thanks to those astronomical profit margins, the Pharmaceuticals and Health Products industry is able to spend more on lobbying than any other industry in America.

While big pharma lobbying can take several different forms, these companies tend to target their contributions to senior legislators in Congress — you know, the ones they need to keep in their corner, because they have the power to draft healthcare laws. Pfizer has outspent its peers in six of the last eight election cycles, coughing up almost $9.7 million. During the 2016 election, pharmaceutical companies gave more than $7 million to 97 senators at an average of $75,000 per member. They also contributed $6.3 million to president Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. The question is: what did big pharma get in return?

COVID-19 linked to increased risk of blood clots months later, study finds

A new study out of Sweden has found that those who contract COVID-19 have an increased risk of certain types of blood clots, which can be fatal, up to six months after infection.

The observational study, published Thursday in the British Medical Journal, reports an increased risk of deep vein thrombosis, a blood clot in the leg, up to three months after COVID-19 infection; pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lung, up to six months later and a "bleeding event" up to two months.

According to researchers from Umea University, these events were higher in patients with underlying health conditions and those with more severe COVID-19.

Comment: While this information is interesting, as evidenced by the Spartacus letter, it's not exactly new.

Notice how the researchers concluded the study with a reminder to 'stay vigilant' and took a subtle jab at the government for dropping restrictions so. While there is a clear reality to the dangers of COVID for some compromised individuals, it's worth remembering that the majority of people will experience little to no symptoms or after-effects.

Objective:Health - Covid Restrictions Dropping Around the World

O:H header
Covid restrictions are continuing to drop around the planet right now, much to the chagrin of the Covid Karens who are refusing to let up on the mask-wearing and social distancing. People in countries which are stubbornly refusing to drop restrictions may do best to just hang on - since the world seems to basically be in lock-step on this, it probably won't be long before they're dropped everywhere.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into the mass dropping of Covid restrictions. How long before they're back?

Released documents reveal Pfizer hired 600+ people to process vaccine injury reports

Pfizer court ruling


Pfizer hired about 600 additional full-time employees to process adverse event reports during the three months following the
Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of its COVID-19 vaccine, newly released documents reveal.

According to the documents, Pfizer said, "More are joining each month with an expected total of more than 1,800 additional resources by the end of June 2021."

The information was contained in a 10,000-page document cache released April 1 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and made public as part of a court-ordered disclosure schedule stemming from an expedited Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Disturbing study finds microplastics in human bloodstream

Microplastics


There's a good chance that tiny pieces of plastic are not only in your body but floating in your bloodstream. The news came from researchers in The Netherlands, who analyzed blood samples from 22 healthy volunteers.
It's the first time microplastics have been detected in human blood, and according to study author professor Dick Vethaak, an ecotoxicologist at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in The Netherlands, "It is certainly reasonable to be concerned."1

The fact is, plastic is a ubiquitous part of the modern-day world, integrally intertwined with our daily lives, from plastic food packaging and bottles to microbeads found in personal care products. It's estimated that 11 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the world's oceans annually — an amount that could nearly triple by 2040.2

Comment: The reason microplastics are so insidious is because, unlike heavy metals and other known toxic chemicals, they are not regularly tested for in consumer products. Furthermore, due to widespread distribution within ecosystems, exposure is basically unavoidable at this point.

Dangers of stealth iron overload & the importance of copper: Mercola interviews Morley Robbins

iron
Morley Robbins, MBA, CHC,1 founder of the Magnesium Advocacy Group and best known as the Magnesium Man, has also written a book called "Cu-RE Your Fatigue: The Root Cause and How to Fix It on Your Own."

In this book, he goes well beyond magnesium into other nutrients such as copper, iron, vitamins A and D and more, and his Root Cause Protocol2 is the implementation of that information. I'm impressed with the book because Robbins covers every basic cause for disease that I am aware of. Most people who write about health will miss a few, but I believe he really nails all of them.

Transhumanism & biofascism are tools of the 'technological elite,' RFK Jr. interviews T.J Coles

Technocracy
Transhumanism and biofacism are becoming tools of the technological elite, according to T.J. Coles, Ph.D., author and researcher at Plymouth University's Cognition Institute in the UK.

On the March 25 episode of "RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast," Coles spoke with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief legal counsel of Children's Health Defense, about transhumanism, the billionaire class and the World Economic Forum (WEF).

UK to stop publishing data that suggest COVID vaccines are ineffective

vaccine
UK data indicates vaccines are ineffective against infection, and unboostered are worse off than the unvaccinated for protection against hospitalization and death.

Comment: Instead of admitting wrongdoing and acknowledging the failure of mass-vaccination campaigns, governments would prefer to censor the data and shut down opposition. Anyone who rightfully points out the obvious fact that covid vaccine do not work and are actually harmful, based on objective scientific data, are accused of "willfully misrepresenting" the science.

In order to save face, governments will do their best to hide these failures from the general public by all means necessary.

The illusion of evidence-based medicine

In 1990, a paradigm shift occurred in the development of new medicines and treatments. An idea so big, that it was supposed to encompass the whole of medicine. It was to start initially at the level of pre-clinical and clinical trials and work all the way through the system to the care and management of individual patients. This new concept for how medicine would be developed and conducted is called evidence-based medicine (EBM). Evidence-based medicine was to provide a more rigorous foundation for medicine, one based on science and the scientific method. Truly, this was to be a revolution in medicine - a non-biased way of conducting medical research and treating patients.
Evidence-based medicine

Evidence-based medicine is "the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients." The aim of EBM is to integrate the experience of the clinician, the values of the patient, and the best available scientific information to guide decision-making about clinical management.
So, what the hell happened?

There is a big flaw in the logic of evidence-based medicine as the basis for the practice of medicine as we know it, a practice based on science; one that determines care down to the level of the individual patient. This flaw is nestled in the heart and soul of evidence-based medicine, which (as we have seen over the last two years) is not free of politics. It is naive to think that data and the process of licensure of new drugs is free from bias and conflicts of interest. In fact, this couldn't be any farther from the truth. The COVID-19 crisis of 2020 to 2022 has exposed for all to see how evidence based medicine has been corrupted by the governments, hospitalists, academia, big pharma, tech and social media. They have leveraged the processes and rationale of evidence-based medicine to corrupt the entire medical enterprise.

Evidence based medicine depends on data. For the most part, the data gathering and analysis process is conducted by and for the pharmaceutical industry, then reported by senior academics. The problem, as laid out in an editorial in the British Medical Journal is as follows:
