Objective:Health - Is No-Virus Theory a Psy-Op?

O:H header
Once in awhile, conspiracy theorists tend to go off the rails and start going down labyrinthine rabbit holes that lead nowhere. The no-virus theory seems to be the latest of these, especially as it relates to Covid. We did a show on this back in March of 2021 and, despite our thinking it was a flash in the pan, it seems to be popping up a lot lately. Many people in the alternative realm seem to be more receptive than ever and are more than happy to smear those who refute it (including Dr. Robert Malone).

As with many off-the-rails conspiracy theories, one can easily get caught up in the minutiae. But what is lacking in the no-virus theory is a coherent explanation for what we all see daily and has been studied extensively in complex field of study.

Do virologists get everything right? Of course not, and you'd be unlikely to find one who said otherwise. But does that mean an entire field of science is bunk? Should we throw away hundreds of years of research in order to refute the idea that disease can be spread by through infectious agents like viruses? If we assume that viruses don't exist and all the research ever done about them is nonsense, we will never find out what's going on (which may be the whole point of spreading the no-virus theory among critical researchers).

Join us for this episode of Objective:Health as we go toe-to-toe with the latest mind-virus to be infecting the fringe: no-virus theory.

Mysterious hepatitis outbreak in children linked to adeno-associated virus - adenovirus is used as a vector in a number of Covid vaccines

child hepatitis outbreak
Covid itself is not to blame for the mysterious hepatitis outbreak affecting children across the world, researchers insisted today.


Comment: Who thought Covid was to blame? Covid has been around for well over 2 years now (it has been discovered to have begun circulating since late 2019) and these hepatitis cases only began at the beginning of this year.


However, pandemic-era lockdowns may have played a role.


Comment: Indeed, they played a role, but these cases have been identified in particular regions of the world, but not in others, meaning that it's likely there's another, more significant aggravating factor.


Scientists today pinpointed a usually-harmless virus as being the main culprit for the unusual liver illness, which has sickened 200 youngsters in the UK and left a dozen needing transplants.


Comment: And that's just in the UK.


Two separate studies concluded that adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) seems to play a 'significant role'.

Comment: Adenovirus is used in a number of the Covid vaccines, and even the BMJ recently published a letter proposing the possibility of a link:
A substantial proportion of the population in the UK has received Vaxzevria which is an adenovirus vector vaccine from AstraZeneca developed by the Jenner Institute in Oxford [2]. The chimpanzee viral vector was selected due to the low herd immunity in the human population and originates from an adenovirus purified from the faeces of chimpanzee cubs [3]. The vector is genetically modified so that it cannot multiply, and genes of interest can be added. In Vaxzervria, the DNA sequence expressing the spike protein from the original Wuhan SARS-CoV-2 virus has been inserted [4]. Could the adenovirus vector vaccine have contributed to a new recombinant virus? Even if the virus vector does not multiply there is an obvious risk exposing such a large number of individuals that recombination with an adenovirus could occur.

Research by UK gov't finds air pollution a likely cause of dementia in elderly people

Air pollution is a likely cause of dementia and overall cognitive decline in elderly people, major new research carried out on behalf of the UK government and released on Monday suggests.

The Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) came to its conclusion after examining almost 70 studies in human populations, which were looking for links between air pollution and diminished mental abilities.

"It is likely that air pollution can contribute to a decline in mental ability and dementia in older people," the report says.

Researchers believe that the most likely way this happens is through blood circulation. "It is known that air pollutants, particularly small particles, can affect the heart and blood vessels, including to the brain," the study reads.

China approves Genuine Biotech's HIV drug to treat pneumonia in Covid patients as part of relaxing its 'zero covid' policy

People get tested for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a mobile nucleic acid testing site outside a shopping mall in Beijing, China March 16, 2022.
China on Monday gave conditional approval to domestic firm Genuine Biotech's Azvudine pill to treat certain adult patients with COVID-19, adding another oral treatment option against the coronavirus.

The availability of effective COVID vaccines and treatments is crucial in laying the groundwork for China's potential pivoting from its "dynamic COVID zero" policy, which aims to eliminate every outbreak - however small - and relies on mass testing and strict quarantining.

The Azvudine tablet, which China approved in July last year to treat certain HIV-1 virus infections, has been given a conditional green light to treat adult patients with "normal type" COVID, the National Medical Products Administration said in a statement.

COVID jabs impacting male and female fertility?

Infertility
The first COVID shots rolled out in December 2020, and it didn't take long before doctors and scientists started warning of possible reproductive effects.

Among them were Janci Chunn Lindsay, Ph.D., director of toxicology and molecular biology for Toxicology Support Services LLC, who in April 2021 submitted a public comment1 to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), highlighting the high potential for adverse effects on fertility.


I previously interviewed Lindsay in 2021. That article is not updated with the new information, but the interview (above) is a good primer for the information she shares below. In many ways, she predicted what we are now observing.

Pfizer mRNA vaccine goes into liver and changes into DNA, Swedish study finds

The research was conducted at Lund University.

A new Swedish study published in MDPI found that the Pfizer vaccine goes into liver cells and converts to DNA, challenging claims so far that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way.

It's the first time that researchers have shown in vitro - or inside a petri dish - how an mRNA vaccine is converted into DNA on a human liver cell line, the Epoch Times reported.

It's precisely what health experts and fact-checkers said for more than a year could not occur.

Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist and epidemiologist who is one of the leading critics of the COVID vaccines, said the findings have "enormous implications of permanent chromosomal change" that could drive a "whole new genre of chronic disease."

Comment: As slowly facts are established from legitimate research, the importance of 10-year+ studies before subjecting the public to new vaccine protocol is obvious. But that wasn't the plan, the timeframe nor the desired outcome.

Icelandic Study: Less than 0.06% of children experience severe Covid symptoms

rekjavic iceland
Since the early days of the pandemic, evidence has consistently shown that Covid poses almost no risk to children. A major British study from last year estimated the survival rate for under 18s as 99.995%, and found that three quarters of under 18s who died from Covid had a serious underlying health condition.

Deaths are (relatively) easy to count. But what about severe symptoms that don't result in death - how many children experience those? A new Icelandic study provides the answer.

The study, authored by Valtyr Thors and colleagues, has one key advantage over previous studies: thanks to Iceland's small population and comprehensive record-keeping, the authors were able to identify all children infected with Covid up to August 31st 2021 (or very nearly all).

Eleven children report serious injury from the vaccines versus zero serious cases of covid, official data from Iceland show

iceland children vaccination
According to Icelandic online newspaper Fréttin, the Icelandic Medicines Agency has received 107 reports of side-effects of Covid vaccines in children, of which 11 are classified as serious.

A serious adverse effect is defined as an effect of a drug that leads to death, a life-threatening condition, hospitalisation or prolongation of hospitalisation or that causes disability or birth defects in humans. Also, reports that are considered clinically important are classified as serious.

The rate of reported versus experienced adverse effects, as well as the ratio of reported effects that actually are proven to be vaccine-induced, remain unclear, but according to estimates the reporting rate of adverse effects is quite low.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day announces case of polio
A case of polio has been reported in Rockland, county officials have confirmed. The viral disease, which can cause neurological symptoms, paralysis or death, had been considered eradicated in the U.S. for decades.

The person had not been vaccinated against polio, health officials said.

The person, a young adult, was hospitalized but is no longer, officials confirmed. Officials said the person had presented with paralysis but wouldn't say if the paralysis was permanent. The person is no longer able to transmit the virus, officials said.

State health officials said polio is considered very contagious and a person can spread the virus even if they are not sick.

Building muscle with exercise and reassessing protein intake

weight lifting gaining muscle
Maintaining muscle mass as you age is an integral part of staying healthy and independent. Stuart Phillips, Ph.D., a professor of kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where he is also the director of the Physical Activity Center of Excellence, is an expert in this area and recently spoke with Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D., about how to use resistance exercise and protein intake to build muscle.

Once you reach your 40s, you may lose about 1% of muscle mass per year, which corresponds to a 1% to 3% drop in strength.1 Loss of muscle mass is associated with a downward decline in health, including an increased risk of premature death, while engaging in muscle-strengthening exercises for just 30 to 60 minutes per week is enough to lower your risk of death.2

However, it is important to understand that this is just the common observation and not a rule set in stone. I started aggressive resistance training and increasing my protein intake to 1.3 grams/kilogram in my 60s and at the age of 67 was able to increase about 25 pounds of muscle mass. So much so that I was able to ten reps of 600 pounds on a leg press (see below).
