Link to Banned Video on Vaccinated COVID Cases

If you got my last post by email, the link to Dr. Suneel Dhand's banned video didn't show up. Apparently, the email feed I use doesn't recognize videos unless they're on YouTube.  You can see Dr. Dhand's video at the link below--it's hosted on Odysee.

Lifestyle Medicine Getting Cancelled

There's an idea going around that cancel culture isn't real, and the only people being "cancelled" are racists and alt-right types and conspiracy theorists. How do you know this is correct? Why, their opponents and the media outlets that deplatformed them tell you so! It's circular logic.   Likewise, people looking down their noses at "Dr. Google" and their warnings--"don't get medical advice on social media!" Consider the source, though: doctors and media companies, both of whom (in many cases) take money from pharma. There's no conspiracy theory here; rather, it's realizing that trying to cure yourself by listening to people selling medications meant to be taken indefinitely is worse than asking a barber if you need a haircut.  Some doctors promoting effective lifestyle changes--not quackery--have been deplatformed. Dr. William Davis, the Wheat Belly author, has said in online meetups that TV shows no longer have him on as a gue

Pilot Push Back Against Vaccine Mandates

Maybe you've heard of doomsday cults: religious sects with charismatic leaders who predict the world will end by a certain date. Doomsday comes--but by some miracle, the world doesn't end. Neither does the cult--many members go on being members.  So it is with coronabros. We were all supposed to die of COVID (well, a bunch of us, anyway). Now that apostates have kept on living, left the cult and refuse to take the holy water, some of the cultists are coming unglued.  Southwest Airlines cancelled over 1,000 flights over the weekend. The word over at Unreported Truths is that there's a pilot sick-out over vaccine mandates, and pilots from other airlines are ready to join them. Some blue checky-check on Twitter called the sick-out "domestic terrorism." Silence is violence, and apparently so is not showing up for work. Other cultists want the president to fire them, apparently not realizing that Southwest Airlines is a private employer, nor that firing pilots wouldn

Links to Project Veritas COVID Vaccine Videos

If you were emailed the last post showing Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson scientists caught on camera talking about the vaccines, but the videos didn't show up, links are here: Project Veritas EXPOSES COVID Vaccine Part 3: "Kids Shouldn't Get a F****** Vaccine" Project Veritas EXPOSES COVID Vaccine Part 4: "Your Antibodies are Better than the Vaccination" Project Veritas is an investigative journalism organization.

Johnson & Johnson Scientists: Kids Shouldn't Get COVID Vaccines + More Bombshells

Bombshells from scientists about the COVID vaccines came out this week. Vaccine evangelists, take cover! Johnson & Johnson Scientists: Kids shouldn't get a f****** COVID vaccine Project Veritas filmed scientists from Johnson & Johnson saying that kids not only don't need COVID vaccines, but pointing out the lack off long-term data.  Pfizer Scientists: Your antibodies are probably better than the vaccine In a separate video, Pfizer scientists explain how immunity from infection is probably better than vaccination.  Oxford: Jabs have modest, rapidly dwindling effect on delta transmission Across the pond, Oxford scientists studied how Pfizer and AstraZenica vaccines affected delta variant transmission by analyzing data from 139,164 contacts of 95,716 people infected with COVID in the United Kingdom. Nature says,  The study shows that people who become infected with the Delta variant are less likely to pass the virus to their close contacts if they have alre

Medical Tourism to Appalachia? + Cool Stuff & New Blogger

Medical Tourism Many of us who direct our own health care get lab tests to see our levels of vitamin D, triglycerides, hormones, etc. Living here in freewheeling Indiana, I can order my own, but at least one member of Dr. Davis's Inner Circle drives from Pennsylvania to West Virginia for labs since Pennsylvania makes you get a doctor's permission slip. Coincidentally, one of my neighbors with special medical needs sees a doctor in Kentucky.  Photo from Pixabay . Others may be joining them in their medical tourism to Appalachia. New York's 80,000 health care vacancies, brought about by the new governor's vaccine mandate, are supposed to be filled by national guardsmen and health care workers with foreign or out-of-state licenses. There was already a shortage of health care workers, and there are bound to be inefficiencies in bringing in a bunch of new staff. Meantime, there are hospitals in Kentucky allowing health care workers to have weekly testing in lieu of vaccinati

Breakthroughs are Over One-Third of Cases & Deaths in Indiana

The magic is wearing off. Today, the Broadway musical Aladdin was canceled after " unnamed members in the musical’s cast and/or crew tested positive for COVID-19 ." The New York Post article doesn't say whether these were breakthrough cases, but considering they're theater people in New York City, they were surely all vaccinated. New York City also requires a vaccine pass just to go to a theater. It's more of those "rare breakthrough cases" we're now hearing about every day. I predicted about a month ago that cases would be traced to Broadway shows, but I thought it would be audience members from out of town getting COVID. New Yorkers have surely all had it or been exposed to it, giving them superior immunity, but maybe the cast or crew members who caught COVID rode out the city's wave on the West Coast or in the country.  A month ago I also started keeping track of breakthrough cases here in Indiana. Indiana's vaccine dashboard presents t

Driving the Car Over the Cliff

One of the greatest things about science is that it helps you get rid of wrong ideas. You might not like it when you see your hypothesis is wrong, but having the desire to think rationally, not emotionally, and to go wherever the facts lead, makes it easier to accept being wrong and trying to correct course. Thinking emotionally, on the other hand, is following a road that can leaf off a cliff.  Photo from Pexels . You don't have to look very hard to see cars heading for a cliff--or falling through the air. Australia is a penal colony again, New York state is about to fire over 80,000 unvaccinated health care workers in the midst of a pandemic and labor shortage even though whatever vaccinated replacements they can find can spread COVID, and everywhere there's a forceful push to vaccinate everyone even though it hasn't slowed down spread anywhere it's been tried.  It's not just policy makers: an online acquaintance thinks unvaccinated people are committing involunta

HHS Doctor on Hidden Camera: "The Vaccine is Full of Sh!t"

Jodi O'Malley, a registered nurse at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center (part of the Department of Health and Human Services), teamed up with Project Veritas to expose severe COVID vaccine reactions occurring but not being reported to VAERS, the vaccine adverse event reporting system, even though medical professionals are legally required to report such injuries. During the filming, a man in his thirties with congestive heart failure was being treated; the doctor believed the cause was his COVID vaccination. O'Malley says she's seen dozens of adverse reactions. "The vaccine is full of shit" and the government wants to "sweep it under the mat," the doctor says on hidden camera. We finally know what's in the vaccine. Screen grab from Project Veritas video . The video also shows a pharmacist stating that off-label medications such as ivermectin were forbidden to be prescribed on pain of termination.  Project Veritas is a nonprofit organization that does

FDA Panel Rejects Boosters

The FDA Advisory Panel just gave the thumbs-down to boosters for the general public. They’ve only recommended it for elderly and high-risk people. If you’re not approved for a booster, the COVID vaccine buys you some six months’ worth of reduced risk of moderate to severe COVID; most of the shots already given are due to turn into a pumpkin in time for winter. This is exactly why some of us  noped out of the vaccine experiment : public health experiments in our lifetime haven't had much success.  Assuming the FDA follows the Advisory Panel’s recommendation, hospitals and other employers who’ve issued vaccine mandates will have run off the help for nothing. Several thousand people have died or suffered severe vaccine injuries for nothing. Our Unifier-in-Chief tried to get 80 million Americans fired for nothing.  On the bright side, maybe the vaccine evangelists will quarantine themselves for the duration and the rest of can quit thinking of us versus them .

Late Summer Joy

I'm interrupting this delta variant/Afghanistan nightmare/vaccine passport/Australian lockdown/throw-the-unvaccinated-under-the-bus mess to bring you some late summer joy. A butterfly enjoys the asters in my back yard. A monarch butterfly caterpillar munches on milkweed by the driveway. A praying mantis sits on the garage, mugging the camera.  Summer harvest from my garden: ox heart slicing tomatoes, roma cooking tomatoes, Anaheim chiles, jalapeños, and a Right Stuff bell pepper. Biggs caught and killed the rat that was eating the tomatoes--good dog! Pickled peppers. Don't you love it when the lids go "tonk"? Only three grams of carb per quarter cup--should you want to eat that much! Three-herb marinara, made with tomatoes and herbs from the garden. No pesticides or funky ingredients, and just 13 grams of carb per half-cup serving.  The canning recipes are from the Better Homes and Gardens Complete Canning Guide, 2015. The three-herb marinara is a favorite of mine, b

Are the Unvaccinated a Threat?

Yesterday, our Unifier-in-Chief told us we should be angry with our unvaccinated neighbors for putting vaccinated people at risk, even though (he said) the vaccines make you very safe. All the same, he's trying to get employers to fire their unvaccinated employees because they're a threat to the vaccinated employees. Good luck with the testing option when there's a shortage of health care workers.  If the vaccines reduce symptoms enough to keep people out of hospitals--by all accounts, they do--then the unvaccinated aren't a threat. "But the vaccines don't provide perfect protection!" the vaccine evangelists cry. Of course, everything else they do, like driving , eating and riding a bike , is completely free of any hazard--right? I'll bite, though: let's take a look at the odds of having a breakthrough hospitalization or death. I have data for Indiana, but you can play along with data from your area. Odds of Breakthrough Hospitalization According

The Ivermectin Muddle

A number of stories on ivermectin, both for and against, have turned out to be false or at least unverifiable.  An Oklahoma hospital wasn't flooded with any patients with complications from ivermectin, Mississippi's poison control center was not inundated with calls from people who'd overdosed on ivermectin, and the "spike" in calls to Kentucky's poison control center consisted of 13 calls . Yes, the first retraction begins, "One Oklahoma hospital denies..." but it can't be that hard for professional journalists to identify which rural hospital had multiple shooting victims AND an ER full of ivermectin overdoses. Even in Indianapolis, multiple shooting victims make the news. It's tempting to blame the gullibility on people who've never set foot in flyover country (except for Chicago), but Kentucky's governor is going on about the " horse dewormer craze " and the Oklahoma TV station that ran the horse-meds-at-the-OK-Corra

Ivermectin, Monoclonal Antibodies, and Blood Sugar: COVID Strategies

Ivermectin has been in the news lately with headlines like "Man ODs on Horse Dewormer" and "Hospitals Full of Ivermectin Patients." If this is the only perspective you've heard, let me tell you why people DIY their own health.  DIY Health Years ago, a commenter at Dr. Davis's Track your Plaque blog recalled when he was diagnosed with diabetes. He researched the illness, found that doctors and veterinarians had completely different views, and he wondered how humans and animals could be so different. He concluded that the veterinarians had it right. For a while, he thought about seeing a veterinarian for his diabetes, but finally decided to take care of it himself. He's not the only one taking care of his own illness. I'm part of online communities whose members have had to either fix their own health problems or watch them get worse. Dietary guidelines for all Americans include "healthy whole grains," even though too many Americans are overw

Elites Need a Reality Check

It started with hard-core cynics. Then came the rednecks , then blue collar people, and now the middle class is joining in. I'm talking about people who realize most of those making public health decisions not only have no idea what they're doing, but they don't realize they have no idea.  "This product is an ear loop mask, this product is not a respirator and will not provide any protections against COVID-19 (coronavirus) and other viruses or contaminants."  Some of their magical thinking would be funny if people weren't suffering:  From Portland, Oregon : "We’re seeing the number of people hospitalized going up at rates we’ve never seen before,” said Peter Graven, Ph.D., lead data scientist in OHSU’s Business Intelligence unit. “ We had hoped to see the new statewide masking mandate make a difference in flattening the rate of infection, but we’re not seeing that yet.” I noticed that people in the building trades, who probably wear masks for work or k

Prepare for Poop Hitting the Fan

What do you get when you cross a wave of illness with an exodus of nurses and caregivers? We may be about to find out. The experience in Israel, where they vaccinated early and widely, shows the Pfizer vaccine starts petering out around six months. A Japanese preprint study says that with a few common mutations, the delta variant could escape the Pfizer vaccine neutralizing antibodies. And now, several hospitals are mandating vaccination and Biden is requiring nursing home employees to be vaccinated. I'm not in the health care industry, but from what I've heard, a lot of nursing homes would have to shut their doors in the face of such a requirement . Alex Berenson, on the other hand, thinks the hospital mandates, at least, will go bye-bye if nurses sit tight. Let's hope so.  Vaccine Mandates The FDA's approval of the Pfizer vaccine is likely to increase the mandates--which seems to be the only purpose of the approval. The acting commissioner of the FDA was their "

Enjoying DIY Health and Projects

It's been a tough year and a half for most of us, but I've been taking advantage of the things available to us in 2021. DIY health, LED lights and modern home improvement tools have improved my life this year.  The main thing has been DIY health. As many readers know, trying to get necessary labs from doctors can make you feel like Oliver Twist: "Please, sir, may I have some proper health care?" Being more irreverent and more of a do-it-yourselfer, I've ordered my own labs (allowed here in freewheelin' Indiana), researched my own care, and experimented with hormones ordered online. I've also been a member of Dr. Davis's Inner Circle group and found it invaluable. The L. reuteri/B. coagulans yogurt in particular has been helpful. It has been a bumpy ride, but my last thyroid panel came back normal. Normal--on no medications! My free T3 and free T4 are in the middle of the reference range. TSH is above program ideal at 2.4, but I'm not tired, I'

Life Imitates Satire in New Zealand

Will someone alert New Zealand's prime minister that the Babylon Bee isn't a guide to public policy? "New Zealand Announces it's Locking Down the Entire Country...Over One Covid Case. " The elipses suggest that even CNN thinks they've lost the plot. A month ago, the Babylon Bee wrote , "...officials in Canada say they are dealing with an apocalyptic surge of "literally infinity percent" after COVID cases increased from zero to one this week. “Our nation may never recover from this,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau." New Zealand is going for zero COVID. The New York Post says , "[Prime Minister] Ardern announced that all New Zealand will be in the toughest, level-four lockdown for at least three days from Wednesday, with schools, offices and businesses closed and only essential services operational. The biggest city, Auckland — where the unidentified 58-year-old man tested positive — would have a longer, seven-day lockdown, as would

So Proud!

Before I resume my home improvement project, I want to cheer on everyone who is protesting vaccine passports. Nobody should have to take an experimental vaccine to access "non-essential" services.  Hundreds of thousands of people across Europe, Israel and Canada--many of them vaccinated--are marching, boycotting businesses, and burning their vaccine cards. They understand that freedom is a natural right, not a gift bestowed by government. They understand that skulking through life in a constant state of fear isn't living; that a two-tier society isn't what they want.
