🔥EXCLUSIVE: Buckhaults begins first study on human samples to see if mRNA vaccines cause cancer.

.@P_J_Buckhaults answers questions about why he hypothesises there's a cancer risk with mRNA vaccines, the type of study he's conducting & when he expects results.

Must see interview - link below👇

@RobertKennedyJr @DrJBhattacharya @jordanbpeterson @FiveTimesAugust @FLSurgeonGen @KLVeritas @Jikkyleaks @JanJekielek @jeffreyatucker @jchilders98 @ProfTimNoakes @IamBrookJackson
@TheChiefNerdImage International drug regulators - @US_FDA, @GovCanHealth & @EMA_News - have confirmed the presence of DNA fragments contaminating the mRNA vaccines, but deny the amounts exceed the allowed limit, or that it poses a risk to human health.

Fed up with the FDA turning a blind eye to the problem, @FLSurgeonGen called for the halt in the use of the vaccines earlier this year.

🚨🧵Academics call for urgent action to address the shortcomings of UK Covid-19 Inquiry.

The #Hallett Inquiry suffers from bias, false assumptions & a lack of impartiality, say over 50 leading academics in an open letter.

@KevinBardosh @collateralglbl @ProfKarolSikora @DrJBhattacharya @MartinKulldorff @SunetraGupta @gbdeclaration @uksciencechief @toadmeister… Prof @KevinBardosh, Director @collateralglbl says Hallett Inquiry has focused too much on “who said what and when,” rather than homing in on key scientific questions about the evidence (or lack thereof) underpinning policy decisions.…

🧵mRNA COVID-19 vaccines lead to 'off target' proteins - but what does it mean?

@AdhesionsOrg says "The mRNA vaccines are causing our bodies to produce uncharacterised proteins, with unknown toxicology, that produce an immune response of unknown clinical significance"

@Kevin_McKernan @Jikkyleaks @JanJekielek @DJSpeicher @JesslovesMJK @jeffreyatucker @StabellBenn @RxRegA @KLVeritas @TexasLindsay_ @DrEliDavid @FLSurgeonGen @ClareCraigPath @NassMeryl @SabinehazanMD @RobertKennedyJr… Ribosomes, which are responsible for decoding the mRNA in cells, can slip & misread the coded instructions about 8% of the time - known as “ribosomal frameshifting" - so your cells can make "off target" proteins that they're not supposed to make - but is this a safety concern?

🧵Part 2: Tackling the obesity crisis without drugs

At a time when #Ozempic & other weight loss drugs soar in popularity, @calleymeans talks about how a focus on food policy could tackle the obesity crisis.

@ProfTimNoakes @DoctorChrisVT @RobertKennedyJr…
Image .@RobertKennedyJr said “If I have not significantly dropped the level of chronic disease in our children by the end of my first term, I do not want you to re-elect me.”

What's the solution? Fix the 'toxic food' environment which is the root cause of chronic diseases.

Part 1: Weighing up the value of weight loss drugs
[A two-part series on weight loss drugs & food policy]

Drug makers are testing the drugs in kids as young as 6yrs. Do the benefits of weight loss drugs outweigh the harms?

@ProfTimNoakes @richardursomd @zoeharcombe @RWMaloneMD Image “I began seeing patients who were metabolically healthy and wanting to take the drug just to lose a few pounds,” says Prof Cucuzzella. “People need to understand that the drug comes with significant downsides and therefore, should only be used in the highest risk patients.” Image

FDA ties with Gates Foundation

A collaboration between @US_FDA and the @gatesfoundation has raised concerns about undue influence over the regulation of pandemic countermeasures.

🧵 Remember when @CDCgov kept saying that mRNA vaccination during pregnancy & breastfeeding was not an issue?

“Get vaccinated while you're thinking about having a baby, before you're thinking about having a baby, while you're pregnant with your baby or after you've delivered your baby,” said Walensky in Sept 2021
Then, in 2022, a study in @JAMA_current found trace amounts of mRNA in the breast milk of mothers who’d received the Pfizer or Moderna covid-19 vaccine.…

Pfizer drip feeds data from its pregnancy trial of covid-19 vaccine

It took over 1 year to publish.

An analysis of the results so far shows the trial was underpowered, poorly designed & incomplete

See comments from Profs @RetsefL & Angela Spelsber
Image “Pfizer took a year to publish the data. When they finally did, it is incomplete. And we are expected to wait until July 2024 for the next batch of results, while authorities continue to recommend the vaccine in pregnant women,” said @RetsefL

What's in the placebo?

Drug companies will often manufacture their own placebo for clinical trials - the exact formulation is rarely disclosed in medical journals. Authors/drug manufacturers are not required to disclose the contents of a "matched" placebo
Image Placebos can be "active" or "inactive".

Sometimes even "inactive" or inert placebos contain excipients such as chemicals, dyes or allergens, which might unintentionally cause side effects, raising concerns about the reliability of trial

Australia's own 'Ministry of Truth'

A new ‘disinformation bill’ has been introduced to censor Australians online if public posts are deemed to contain 'misinformation or disinformation'

@elonmusk @DrJBhattacharya @SenatorAntic @MartinKulldorff @akheriaty
Late 2022, @elonmusk opened Twitter’s internal communications to investigative journalists only to find the US government colluded with tech companies to censor Americans online.

Australian @SenatorAntic watched in disbelief & wondered if the same thing was happening back home.

Serious adverse events from Pfizer's mRNA vaccine are not "rare."

Despite repeatedly claiming that serious harms of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine are RARE, an investigation found no drug regulator could quantify the rate.

The best evidence we have so far is the Fraiman analysis.

Serious adverse events (SAEs) were elevated in the vaccine arm by an alarming rate – 1 additional SAE for every 556 people vaccinated with Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine.…

Mammograms for women 40 & over?

New US guidelines propose all women should start screening for breast cancer at age 40 instead of 50, but what does the evidence show?

@PGtzsche1 @VPrasadMDMPH @dockaurG @KLVeritas @TracyBethHoeg @ShannonBrownlee Image A Cochrane review in 2013 (and an unpublished update in Jan 2023) also found mammography screening had no impact on the most important outcome, i.e. overall (all-cause) mortality.

For years, the @US_FDA allowed a drug to be injected into pregnant women that was neither safe, nor effective. Finally, it has been withdrawn.

It’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of pregnant mothers & babies were exposed. Image “I cannot believe we’ve been injecting this hormone into pregnant women for 20 years, all the leading medical organisations recommended it, the FDA approved it - and it took this long to finally acknowledge the drug did not work,” said @AdamUrato1 Image

🚨 New: Prozac "unsafe & ineffective" for young people, analysis finds

A reanalysis of regulatory data finds that attempted suicides were excluded from the final journal publication, and the journal has not corrected the record. Image Prozac (fluoxetine) was FDA-approved for the treatment of depression in children & adolescents based on data from only two clinical trials published in 1997 and 2002.

Subsequently, fluoxetine became one of the most prescribed antidepressants for children aged 0-19yrs in the US.

Pfizer hid data on waning immunity as millions queued to get vaccinated.…
Regulatory filings (accessed by Peter Doshi) show Pfizer had evidence, early into the vaccination campaign, that vaccine efficacy waned, but waited months before alerting the public. Image “It’s clear from the documents that these analyses were almost 4 months old by the time they became public,” said Doshi

In that 4-month delay, ~90 million Americans queued to get vaccinated, unaware that data were already in hand, hinting that two doses may not be the final ask. Image

Whatever happened to Pfizer's covid vaccine trial in pregnant women?

Today, Pfizer told me it has not published the study because it does NOT have the data.
@MartyMakary @VPrasadMDMPH @KLVeritas @RWMaloneMD @FLSurgeonGen @TracyBethHoeg… The world was dealing with a novel vaccine technology, tested under ‘warp speed’ conditions, and no long-term safety data to speak of.

Pregnant/lactating women were excluded from the original mRNA phase 3 clinical trials so any recommendation to vaccinate them was a gamble.

FDA fails to warn of mRNA vaccine link to MIS-C

“I wouldn't be surprised if there are many more cases of vaccine-associated MIS-C out there. It's something that merits much more scrutiny,” said Patrick Whelan @UCLA… Image FDA/CDC study shows 6 individuals (aged 12-20y) hospitalised with MIS-C; NONE had any evidence of prior covid infection suggesting it was an mRNA vaccine-related adverse event…
