For the return of the #UNMBioblog after our year hiatus, I chose to write about the negative consequences for cats, humans, and #wildlife when we allow #cats to roam freely. I couldn't help myself with the punny title.…
I was inspired to write this blog after I witnessed my neighbor's outdoor pet #cat killed a #bird under my feeder. A heated argument ensued. I know nothing has changed because I still scare him out of my backyard. I've counted 9 different cats in my backyard, here is one
I am a paradoxical #catlover, which stems from my #science & #ornithology career. I know how cute it is for my own #cat to frolic in flowers but I understand how dangerous it is for #cats, human #health, & #wildlife when cats roam #CatsOfTwitter #Caturday #catsofinstagram

Pas une ligne de l'AFP sur ce décès survenu en décembre 2020.
#BrandyVaughan,anciennement cadre de haut niveau chez #Merck, l'un des plus puissant groupe pharmaceutique de la planète, était lanceuse d'alerte.
« L’#obligationvaccinale, c’est pour le profit et pas pour la #santépublique »
A #Whistleblower who had worked for Merck was intimidated, threatened, when she tried to unveil the truth about "#vaccines".

"we need to expose what's really going on behind the #MandatoryVaccination bill"

Did you know you can get FREE health check-ups from your insurer?


☀️It's a lazy Saturday afternoon. You've been waiting for almost an hour now and you can't help but look at the receptionist intently hoping he will call your name.

And then suddenly when you least expect it, you hear your name called out loud. (2/8)
😷You walk into the doctor's room. He directs you to a certain spot and measures your height. He then checks your weight.

He makes you sit straight and then takes your blood pressure. He listens to your heart & lungs and orders a blood test for cholesterol & blood sugar. (3/8)

fyi Colorado,

opioid money isn't going towards addiction spending,
its going into the general budget… #opioids #colorado #government #politics #sackler #purdue #opioidcrisis
"Under the framework, 60% of Colorado’s settlement proceeds will be distributed to 19 regions of the state. Regional Governance Councils, made up of local leaders from each region, will make decisions about how to spend the money & provide reports"
there is nothing that says this money has to be spent on addiction services, NOTHING

That sweet sweet opioid litigation money is going to general budgets & pet projects,

If u are lucky, you might get a new Otter refuge

Ageism. It's widespread across the globe, and can have significant and serious consequences for our health and wellbeing. Here's a short thread on a piece in @TIME, from 2020, which featured research from Prof Becca Levy @YaleSPH #ageism #health #wellbeing 1/
Prof Becca Levy, Yale School of Public Health, and colleagues 'analyzed 422 studies involving ageism in 45 countries from 1970 to 2017... including data from seven million older people' with a focus on 'age discrimination and health outcomes'... 2/
They found evidence that ageism adversely affects health in 96% of the studies
And that ageism was related to worse health outcomes for 11 measures... 3/

Thank you so much to @DrPraegers for having me to discuss the effects of plant-based diets on the #gut #microbiome! Here are my slides for all to see! 😃


#medicine #medtwitter #diet #nutrition #GITwitter #GI #guthealth #health
Just as we do things for heart health and brain health, our #microbiome is an organ of its own (the size of a 🥭), so we need to take care of it!

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,

🚀The number of people porting their #health policies to a higher sum insured rose from 30% in 2020 to 80% in 2021 between the months of March to May.

Pretty shocking!

Everyone's porting their health policies, should you?

A thread... (1/10)
Porting is basically a process that allows you to change insurers or policies without losing the benefits of waiting periods you've already jumped over.

So you get to change your terms and the insured amount while making sure that you don't lose these benefits. Amazing! (2/10)
💡Now ever since the pandemic, #insurance has seen a much-awaited revolution with a jump in sales - 40% from the previous year. But this isn't the only reason why people are porting. (3/10)

When culture wars turn deadly. Will our nation’s culture wars end up killing us?

The question is not rhetorical. Continuing resistance to the coronavirus vaccine rooted in political and cultural suspicions is heart-rending. For many, it is also enraging.…
The culture wars’ distortion of the vaccine argument is potentially catastrophic for millions of Americans. Can we consider putting some of our animosity aside until we are all healthy and safe again? #culture #covid #health

Just a quick thread on #evidence and #public #health interventions in the context of #COVID19. Some have suggested that common interventions, such as #masking, require a #randomized #controlled #trial before asking people, particularly #children to do this. 1/
To mask or not to mask, that is the question. Wait, I think we need more information, we should conduct an RCT before answering that query. depends. 2/
There is a trade-off here: what is the benefit collecting more evidence vs. the benefit of making a decision now with the information you have in hand? 3/

Veg or Non-veg? - Out of 690 votes received - 63% felt that there is no or slight difference between lifespan of vegetarians vs non vegetarians. 8% said non vegetarians live longer and 29% said vegetarians live longer by nearly 10years. #diet #vegetarian #nonvegetarian #LONGEVITY… this study published in JAMA otherwise looked at various factors which affected longevity. #AdventistHealthStudy
AHS-1 helped firmly establish that Adventists are a long-lived population. Compared to other Califonians, participants in AHS-1 had greater longevity. Findings estimated men in AHS-1 lived 7.3 y longer and AHS-1 women 4.4 y longer, on average than their California counterparts

⚠️ GROSS COI REVEALED: In an extraordinary and fantastically written investigative report, @theintercept's @rose_n_adams unveils how @UHC co-opted @zackcooperYale's #surprisemedicalbill study, all while #Congress embraced it as "academic" and "unbiased" work to write #SMB law.
1⃣ This lays bare how #UnitedHealth has manipulated #surprisebill "research" to enrich itself at the expense of all #patients and the frontline #medical providers risking their lives over the past few years of #Covid.

2⃣ The study was foundational in the #SMB debate, and...

It is very important in this period of humanity to take a serious look at what is happening in the world friends.

Watch this video first in its entirety & reflect upon current situations critically.

#Menticide is here & with it, a new attempt to establish a "#TechnoTotalitarian" rule over the lives of American citizens.

The final variant of #Coronavirus could very well be the manifestation of a #NewWorldOrder under #totalitarian rule.
That may sound absurd, but what is very concerning is that many talking heads in the media & even public figures are now making very carefully worded emotional appeals to logic to further induce a totalitarian #masspsychosis.
