Why Are We Vaxxinating Children Against COVID-19?

Clinical trials for these💉were VERY SHORT-TERM
(a few months), had samples not representative of
the total pop., and for adolescents/children, had
poor predictive power because of their SMALL SIZE.
Further, the clinical trials>
did NOT ADDRESS changes in BIOMARKERS that could serve as EARLY WARNING INDICATORS of elevated PREDISPOSITION to SERIOUS DISEASES. Most importantly, the clinical trials did not address LONG-TERM EFFECTS that, if serious, would be BORNE by CHILDREN/ADOLESCENTS for potentially>
DECADES. A novel best-case scenario cost-benefit ANALYSIS SHOWED very conservatively that there
are 5 X'S THE NUMBER OF DEATHS attributable to each💉vs those attributable to COVID

death from COVID DECREASES DRASTICALLY as>

More info on the @CancerPrev_KCL & @CR_UK-run NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial:

kcl.ac.uk/news/kings-lea…

cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/c…

Worth noting you can't #volunteer for this trial, but if you are 50-77 & haven't been diagnosed with cancer in the past 3 years, you may be #invited... Image
The NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial is a proper #RCT, which means half of the 140,000 participants WON'T be tested (certainly not in the initial phase) and NONE will be told whether they have been #tested or not.

Of course if the test indicates *possible* markers for #cancer... Image
...then you will be contacted by the trial nurse by phone, and will be referred to an NHS hospital for further tests.

So every participant in the NHS-Galleri™ #screening trial should still attend standard screening & should contact their GP if they notice any unusual symptoms: Image

What is lead-time bias in #cancer screening?

Imagine that a meteor was hurtling through space towards the Earth. Its speed and trajectory indicate that it will destroy the planet in approximately 10 years.

Now, let's say that our best sensors are only ...
... capable of seeing said meteor 1 year in advance. So, 9 years go by and we are blissfully unaware of our impending doom. Then, at the 9-year mark, we detect the meteor and measure our remaining survival time to be just 1 year.
What if I gave you a better sensor? What if this sensor could see the meteor from 10 years away instead of just 1?

How long would our survival time be? While we may have a 10-year lead time instead of a 1-year lead time, the meteor still strikes us on the same day.

18 Reasons I Won't Be Getting a Covid Vaccine | Citizens Journal | Citizens Journal citizensjournal.us/18-reasons-i-w…
#1: VACCINE MAKERS ARE IMMUNE FROM LIABILITY

The only industry in the world that bears no liability for injuries or deaths resulting from their products, are vaccine makers.
First established in 1986 with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and reinforced by the PREP Act,
vaccine makers cannot be sued, even if they are shown to be negligent.

The covid-vaccine makers are allowed to create a one-size-fits-all product, with no testing on sub-populations (i.e. people with specific health conditions), and yet they are unwilling to accept any…

It's the International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies

#AirPollution kills an estimated 7⃣ million people every year around the 🌎🌍🌏

To save lives and achieve #HealthForAll, let's align our efforts and claim the right to clean air.
In 2019, 1/3 of the 🌎🌍🌏 population were exposed to high levels of health-damaging pollutants due to the lack of access to clean fuels and technologies for cooking 🔥

👉 bit.ly/3DUtveE
Unless we accelerate action, the environmental, social, and health toll of #AirPollution will continue, falling disproportionately on women and children, who bear primary responsibility for gathering fuel and preparing meals on polluting stoves.

Dear FDA,
Thank you for allowing Scott Gottlieb to be the commissioner of FDA and then allowing him to profit from Pfizer the drug company. 😑
Thank you for telling us the risk of #coconut oil and recommending GMO #canola oil instead.
Synthetically processed oils over natural God given coconut oil. Whew! Close call! Almost ate something healthy, there! 😰
Thank you for recommending Frosted Flakes over #fruit! Of course, dead food in a box coated in sugar would be healthier than enzymes and
fiber rich, #nutrient dense, delicious #fruit. What was I thinking!?
Thank you for the blessing of #artificial sweeteners! We now know of their #toxic effects on the brain and ability to cause #cancer. Man, if we would have simply stuck to all natural God-given #sweeteners,

Learnings from a speciality residency at one of d top institutes in India -

In my last month of residency & 1-yr post-MCh bond as an adhoc Asst Prof at @TataMemorial Mumbai & @TMC_Varanasi here's a thread on what I learnt. (Might hv some snippets I wish I knew before I joined) Image
1. Oncology - To me, treating #CANCER is the highest form of medicine currently practised. If a fellow human being, is able to rid another, of d #EmperorOfAllMaladies, medicine shall hv achieved what it set out to. Cancer still lurks in d realm of that which needs 'conquering'
I saw this in TMH day in & out. The 'conquering'. I saw pts coming in the worst of conditions and walking back home. To a family. To a life.

I also saw d other end of d spectrum. Whr v had to meekly surrender to the malady. Where we could do precious little to 'save' someone.

Today while I waited for my 3rd dose of #Pfizer, an older man sat next to me, waiting for his 3rd #Moderna. We got to talking. /1
This man had covid, pre-vaccines, was hospitalized 10 days, on a vent, didn't think he was going to make it. Luckily, he did. /2
He then gets both Moderna doses. So happy he's ok. And a month later finds out he has late stage pancreatic #cancer. /3

1/ MISINFORMATION: This is false.

We know that abortions, induced or spontaneous, do not increase your risk for breast cancer. To acknowledge this is neither a moral commentary nor a statement in favor of any particular policy. Image
2/ It is an observation of the reality, one to which we all are beholden. It is particularly disturbing to see so many groups persist in this false claim because of the way it is likely to affect the target audience. Image
3/ Fear is common in disinformation because it affects how we process new information. To be clear, I do not assert that anyone has intentionally spread disinformation, only that the false nature of this claim has been clear for many years.

$ENZC - I haven't fully explored the many possibilities of a Lonza partnership, but doors may open to potentially to Sanofi $SNY ($128B MC) and their strategic partners

@enzolytics formulates
@LonzaGroup assists in clinical
@sanofi produces and licenses

Thanks @Pantherxiii 🤌
$ENZC - notice how Sanofi $SNY acquired Kymab for their "HUMAN" mAb. Deal was worth billions and also tied to "milestones".

Where have we heard these words before? 😉

Possibilities are endless.

Inatt när jag vaknar och inte kan somna om så snurrar tankarna. Jag är döende, men inte sjuk.
Vilken jävla skitsjukdom #cancer är.
Hoppas det går snabbt på slutet.

Döende men inte sjuk.
Jag har fått palliativ och livstidsförlängande vård i 1,5 år snart. Sjukvården och sjukvårdspersonalen har varit tillgänglig och fantastisk trots pandemi. Varma fina människor har tagit hand om mig och jag har känt mig prioriterad och priviligerad. Jag har hemsjukvård...
... i stor utsträckning och cytostatikabehandling på sjukhus. Bra tillgång till mediciner och behandlingar för hundratusentals kronor - allt från smärtlindrande till ångestdämpande och cytostatika, avancerad röntgen och täta blodprov.

1/1 A thread offering some reflections on the #SydneyOutbreak of #COVID19 #DeltaVariant and ending the #SydneyLockdown from a #socialmarketing perspective.

First, behaviour is driven by more than individual psychology & trying to motivate people to do ‘the right thing’.
2/14 The socio-cultural & structural environment also shape people’s behaviour 🙄 Yet, this receives less attention in policy & health behaviour change efforts. This is where a Strategic Social Marketing can come in. au.sagepub.com/en-gb/oce/stra…
3/14 Social marketing uses #marketing & #SocialSciences principles to encourage health #behaviourchange. And it has been used before to tackle pandemics 🤔 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

🆕 recommendations for screening and treatment to prevent #CervicalCancer will help countries take the next step towards elimination. Cervical #cancer is the 4th most common cancer among women worldwide 🌎🌍🌏

👉 bit.ly/3jNfkki
#CervicalCancer is almost entirely preventable and treatable with the HPV vaccine, screening and treatment - but in 2020, more than half a million women 👩‍🦰👵🧕 contracted the disease, and over 340 000 women died as a result.
This must change.

👉 bit.ly/3jNfkki
The 🆕 recommendations have 🔑 updates for countries working to meet the life-saving targets set out in the WHO Global Strategy to Accelerate the Elimination of #CervicalCancer by 2030:
🎯70% of women are regularly screened
🎯90% of women with the disease receive treatment

#cancer What if you can turn cancer cells into a 'Part-time' phenomenon, or even retire them altogether? A brilliant concept presented by Reiter and colleagues in their new peer-reviewed paper tells exactly how that can be achieved. tinyurl.com/5jdyrucf
1.Cancer cells use glucose as energy without involving electron transport in mitochondria for ATP. Instead, they use Warburg-type metabolisms that may use glycolysis and/or the pentose phosphate pathway to generate metabolites and substrates required for growth and proliferation
2. Recent discoveries show cancer cells can switch to using mitochondria OXPHOS similar to healthy cells for energy production. This switch apparently, can be mediated by the presence of higher melatonin that occurs naturally at night in most animals.

Who Let the Dogs Out

Correct!
I repeat: the #TippensProtocol, will likely to be shown to be helpful for SC2, as well as for cancer. There are parallels between the two diseases, there will be parallels in treatments. The research is complementary.

Brand New Data #keto #immune

#keto diet improves adaptive immunity through immunometabolic reprogramming without up regulating innate immunity

Basically: stronger immune system with less inflammation 🔥 embopress.org/doi/epdf/10.15…
2/ #Ketogenic diet could also prove to be a valuable measure in the
threatening situation of the current #COVID-19 pandemic” ya, no kidding... in more ways than one
3/ “These new immunological aspects of KD might contribute to the modern concept of metabolic therapy of cancer (Seyfried et al, 2017, 2020). KD not only targets the Warburg effect, but could also
strengthen anti-tumor immunity (Ferrere et al, 2021).” .@Sam_Apple1
