That delightful saying about men thinking with their nether regions has gained a new meaning. A new study has found an unnerving lot of similarities between men's brains and the innards of their scrotums.

"Brain and testis have the highest number of common proteins, compared with other human body tissues," a team led by biomedical scientist Bárbara Matos from the University of Aveiro in Portugal writes in their new paper.

While the brain has a highly complex role - controlling our bodies, receiving and interpreting signals from sensory organs, not to mention doing all our thinking and feeling, human testes have just two main functions - the production of sperm and hormones. (Although, many of us should be forgiven for attributing these gonads with their own thoughts and feelings too.)

COVID-19 antibodies may last a lifetime

If you've had COVID-19, you've likely been told that your antibodies last a few weeks, or months, at the maximum. However, new research suggests that many will make antibodies against the virus for most of their lives.

Researchers have identified long-lasting cells, which produce antibodies, in the bone marrow of people who have recovered from the virus, per Nature. The study provides evidence that immunity will last longer than once thought.

"The implications are that vaccines will have the same durable effect," Menno van Zelm, an immunologist at Monash University in Australia, said.

Antibodies are the key to immune defense, as they essentially serve as a block for the virus. After a new infection, short-lived cells - called plasmablasts - are an early source of antibodies. But, they disappear soon after the body fights off the virus, and other longer-lasting cells make the antibodies.

"A plasma cell is our life history, in terms of the pathogens we've been exposed to," Ali Ellebedy, an immunologist at Washington University in St. Louis who led the study, said.

Ellebedy's team tracked antibody production in 77 people who recovered from mild cases of COVID-19. Indeed, antibodies plummeted in the four months after the infection, but the decline slowed and up to eleven months after infection, antibodies were still present.

Comment: Vaccines are not a replacement for naturally-occurring immunity mechanisms. It is alarmingly evident that the current field of rushed vaccines are not fully tested and not without ample examples of severe consequences including death.

Vaccine researcher admits 'big mistake,' says spike protein is dangerous 'toxin'

vaccine bribes
Editor's Note: This article has been amended to note that 11 of 13 vaccinated subjects in a recent Ogata study had detectable protein from SARS coronavirus in their bloodstream including three people who had measurable spike protein. Whereas the article referenced a statement from Professor Bridle's group stating that spike protein was present for 29 days in one person, the study in question states that spike protein was found in the person on Day 29, one day after a second vaccine injection with and was undetectable two days later.
New research shows that the coronavirus spike protein from COVID-19 vaccination unexpectedly enters the bloodstream, which is a plausible explanation for thousands of reported side-effects from blood clots and heart disease to brain damage and reproductive issues, a Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week.

"We made a big mistake. We didn't realize it until now," said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario, in an interview with Alex Pierson last Thursday, in which he warned listeners that his message was "scary."

"We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, we never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin," Bridle said on the show, which is not easily found in a Google search but went viral on the internet this weekend.

Bridle, a vaccine researcher who was awarded a $230,000 government grant last year for research on COVID vaccine development, said that he and a group of international scientists filed a request for information from the Japanese regulatory agency to get access to what's called the "biodistribution study."

Surprise discovery in spleen could redefine what we know about malaria

blood
Scientists thought that the spleen is where malaria parasites go to die.

Now, a team of researchers has discovered "a surprisingly large" amount of live Plasmodium parasites hiding out in the spleens of people with chronic malaria infections.

The discovery adds a new dimension to the multistep life cycle of mosquito-borne malaria parasites, some of which can lay dormant in the liver before bursting out into the bloodstream to multiply and spread.

It also helps to explain why chronic cases of malaria fly under the radar on blood tests but then suddenly relapse, and also how some malaria parasites have adapted to survive.

Objective:Health - S‌tudy on the Adverse Effects of the Pfizer Vaccine

O:H header
You may remember the names Hervé Seligmann and Haim Yativ from a show we published March 9 called 'Holocaust 2.0: Vaccine Deaths on the Rise in Multiple Countries,' where they studied the epidemiological data coming out of Israel to conclude that the Pfizer vaccine was, in fact, causing a momentous increase in deaths. Now they're back with a new study called 'Expert evaluation on adverse effects of the Pfizer-COVID-19 vaccination,' and it's another bombshell.

The authors again take a look at data coming from mainstream sources (in this case two data sets released by the Israel Ministry of Health) to demonstrate that the data shows the exact opposite of what was publicized. By undergoing a cost-benefit analysis of the vaccines, taking into account adverse vaccine effects during the period of vaccination, the authors show a documented 3 and 20 fold increase in infection and death rates respectively!

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we dig into this study and more to get to the bottom of what's really happening with these Covid shots.

Johns Hopkins Prof: Half of Americans have natural immunity; dismissing it is 'biggest failure of medical leadership'

"Please, ignore the CDC guidance".

A professor with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine has said that there is a general dismissal of the fact that more than half of all Americans have developed natural immunity to the coronavirus and that it constitutes "one of the biggest failures of our current medical leadership."

Dr. Marty Makary made the comments during a recent interview, noting that "natural immunity works" and it is wrong to vilify those who don't want the vaccine because they have already recovered from the virus.

Dr. Peter McCullough discusses the dangers of the novel COVID vaccine and it's roll out. This is a product that had minimal testing but is being pushed on the masses. Must we all get the shot for things to "go back to normal"? Are you going to get the shot?

Dr. Peter McCullough has been the world's most prominent and vocal advocate for early outpatient treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection in order to prevent hospitalization and death. On May 19, 2021, he was interviewed regarding his efforts as a treating physician and researcher. From his unique vantage point, he has observed and documented a PROFOUNDLY DISTURBING POLICY RESPONSE to the pandemic -- a policy response that may prove to be the greatest malpractice and malfeasance in the history of medicine and public health.

Is a ketogenic diet effective against dementia?

Dementia
© Sebastian Rushworth.com
A sea change is underway. Ten years ago, it was heresy to propose that a ketogenic (a.k.a low carb high fat) diet was in any way healthier than the low fat high carb diet supported by public health authorities. It was branded a "gimmick" diet. In some places, doctors who prescribed it to their patients risked having their medical licenses revoked.

The German physicist Max Planck is often misquoted as having said that "science advances one funeral at a time". Well, the man who gave birth to the low fat high carb dogma, Ancel Keys, died in 2004. His first generation of acolytes have now joined him in oblivion. The men (they were with very few exceptions all men) who created the current dietary guidelines back in the late 70's and early 80's are also gone, after having presided over a massive explosion in the number of people suffering from obesity and type 2 diabetes.

The newer generations of nutrition researchers do not appear to be as wedded to the old dogma. This is visible in the increasing number of studies being published on a ketogenic diet. Some of these are even appearing in the most prestigious and conservative nutrition journals.

One such study was recently published in Advances in Nutrition, a journal owned by the American Society for Nutrition. It was a systematic review looking at randomized trials of a ketogenic diet as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease, which is the most common cause of dementia. We're going to get to that study in a minute, but first, a little detour.

There is some evidence to support the notion that dementia can in part be caused by a high carbohydrate diet. An observational study was published back in 2012 in The Journal of Alzheimer's Disease in which 937 elderly people were followed for four years. The median age at the start of the study was 80 years, and at the beginning, all the participants were asked to fill in a diet questionnaire and were also evaluated for cognitive function. Four years later, 200 of the 937 participants had developed some level of cognitive impairment.

In a first-of-its-kind, peer-reviewed study, researchers have turned back the biological clock in 43 healthy adult males, by up to three years and over just eight weeks, through diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation interventions.

In the randomized, controlled clinical trial, all of the volunteers were aged between 50 and 72 and underwent a targeted regime to modulate DNA methylation.

Biological aging is a catch-all term used to describe the cumulative effect of damage and loss of function to our cells, tissues and organs. Horvath's DNAmAge clock is the benchmark for epigenetic research and predicts all-cause mortality and multiple morbidities better than chronological age.

Diet and lifestyle changes can reduce biological aging suggests new study

Biological Aging

A groundbreaking clinical trial shows we can reduce biological age (as measured by the Horvath 2013 DNAmAge clock) by more than three years in only eight weeks with diet and lifestyle through balancing DNA methylation.

A first-of-its-kind, peer-reviewed study provides scientific evidence that lifestyle and diet changes can deliver immediate and rapid reduction of our biological age. Since aging is the primary driver of chronic disease, this reduction has the power to help us live better, longer.

The study, released on April 12, utilized a randomized controlled clinical trial conducted among 43 healthy adult males between the ages of 50-72. The 8-week treatment program included diet, sleep, exercise and relaxation guidance, and supplemental probiotics and phytonutrients, resulting in a statistically significant reduction of biological age--over three years younger, compared to controls.

The study was independently conducted by the Helfgott Research Institute, with laboratory assistance from Yale University Center for Genome Analysis, and the results independently analyzed at McGill University and the National University of Natural Medicine.
