  • Approximately 1 in 10 people, more women than men, are now suffering from a diagnosed autoimmune condition. Using data from approximately 22 million individuals from the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) researchers, publishing in The Lancet, calculated the prevalence of 19 autoimmune disorders (AIDs) between 2000 and 2019. They also found that some autoimmune disorders are more likely to occur together in the same person, however, given the date range, please be aware that these numbers exclude those that have been covid injected, which we know is increasing the rates of AIDs

  • The happier you are the more diverse your gut microbiome is. A recent study published in Psychological Medicine found people who reported being happy had lower levels of pathogenic bacteria while those who had more negative emotions had increased levels of pathogenic bacteria and those who suppress their emotions had less diverse microbiomes
  • Wearable devices will be used by researchers taking part in the CoDiet project to investigate the relationship between diet and the development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The technology used will include a camera that fits over an individual’s ear that uses AI to recognise food types and estimate portion sizes. The project, which brings together researchers from 10 countries, will be able to harvest a rich seam of health data across all aspects of participants lives, which could potentially be used to guide ongoing tracking in future. The entire project leaves a big question mark over a person's right to basic privacy, let alone data ownership
  • When it comes to health data one of the richest sources in the world is the NHS. Attempts by big pharma and others to access the data wholesale have thus far received huge pushback, the latest being an approach by GlaxoSmithKline. However, pressure continues to mount as multiple organisations fight to reach the NHS pot of gold. A little known organisation in the UK called Health Data Research UK (HDR) has just been awarded over £70 million in funding to help it accelerate access to health data. It's interesting, and sadly unsurprising, to note that Director, Andrew Morris, holds shares in GlaxoSmithKline. HDR has recently launched a campaign to educate the public of the value of handing over their health data for research to help save lives (think drug research!). As always, follow the money...

  • In an unexpected shift, all the expert witnesses supporting claims that cell phones can cause brain tumours have been barred by a judge from giving evidence in a set of 13 legal actions known collectively as Murray v Motorola, the original claim of which was filed more than 20 years ago. Microwave News has the full story
  • A ‘vaccine’ that prevents pregnancy by blocking fertilisation has entered clinical trial. The ‘vaccine’ is the brainwave of the former director of India’s National Institute of Immunology, Gursaran Pran Talwar, who has been developing it since the 1990s. Talwar doesn’t seem to have taken into account the very real potential for autoimmune responses and for women to be left permanently sterile. The Defender explores the issue in detail
  • Doctors should be advising their patients to eat less meat and increase their intake of plant foods in line with the EAT Lancet Planetary diet according to a new viewpoint published in JAMA. The authors also call on governments to incorporate the environmental impact of foods in their dietary guidelines

Meanwhile in a lab near you the future of our food is being 'fermed':

  • Thinktank RethinkX is bigging up precision fermentation ('ferming')as the way to feed the planet and combat climate change. It also describes a new type of ‘cookbook’ called ‘Food-as-software’. Massive databases of molecules, which food engineers anywhere in the world will then be able to use to design new 'foods'. For many it may sound exciting, for others the stuff of dystopian nightmares, and sadly, many just won't really care one way or another as long as it tastes like whatever it's replacing and it's cheap! What RethinkX don't seem take into account is the potential health impact of these new to nature molecules that our bodies - or microbiome - don't recognise, let alone respond to as food
  • In the UK, the government has announced a £12 million investment into the Cellular Agriculture Manufacturing Hub (CARMA) designed to help British scientists and companies make cultivated meat at scale in order to combat climate emissions blamed on animal production
  • In the US, Liberation Labs announced in January 2023, that it has raised $30 million to build a ferming plant in Indiana to produce precision fermented ‘foods’ on a commercial scale. The new plant is expected to come online by the end of 2024
  • However, the environmental impact of the production of lab-grown meat will be orders of magnitude higher than producing meat from animals says a new preprint study. The study estimates the energy needed for the various stages of production, from the ingredients needed for the growth medium and the energy required to power laboratories, compared with the impact of beef. The researchers found lab-grown meat's environmental impact was 4-25 times greater than that of traditional beef production

  • In 2020, a randomised control trial was published in The Oncologist, supporting the benefit of homeopathy as an add on treatment in lung cancer patients that had the potential to improve quality of life and prolong survival. The response from skeptics was strong, with a subsequent investigation resulting by those refuting the results, who then referred the matter to the Austrian Agency for Scientific Integrity (ÖAWI). Following its investigation, the ÖAWI called for the paper to be retracted due to suspected data manipulation or falsification. As yet the journal has not retracted the study, however pressure continues to be brought to bear on the journal to investigate further and retract the study. Lead author of the study, Prof Michael Frass (retired), has firmly rejected the allegations and stands by the published results

  • Dr Rochelle Walensky has resigned from her job as the Director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dr Walensky has not given a reason for her resignation, which coincided with the World Health Organization’s ending of the global health emergency. Speculation is rife about which pharma company will snap her up!
  • Despite overwhelming evidence that SARS-CoV-2 emerged from a lab, the Biden Administration has renewed funding for the EcoHealth Alliance to continue its study of bat coronavirus, three years after it was blocked by Donald Trump. The project comes with restrictions however, that include a ban on working with live viruses. Some scientists are welcoming the renewal as it was felt the original withdrawal of funding was politically driven, while others have slammed the decision. This is an issue that will continue to polarise scientists and politicians alike, but ultimately one that will be closely watched given the disastrous outcome of the previous research
  • UK MP, Andrew Bridgen, has announced his intention to sue Matt Hancock for comments made in a tweet calling him "disgusting and dangerous". He's asking for donations to the fund the lawsuit. Any damages awarded will be donated to help the vaccine injured
  • Skyrocketing cases of cancer post the introduction of covid jabs is brought into stark view by the Ethical Skeptic in a new Twitter thread. The discussion dismisses the theory that the rise is due to undetected cancers due to a lack of checks during the pandemic, as the top two cancers, lung and colon, fell during the period studied, while there’s been a huge increase in odd and ill-defined cancers along with a dramatic increase in cancer in younger age groups. Whatever the cause, the figures should raise a massive red flag and initiate urgent investigations
  • Fact checking organisation, Full Fact, has sent an Open Letter to the UK Secretary of State calling for the government's support for an amendment to the Online Safety Bill that will put an even greater burden on what are called 'Class 1' social media platforms to set out how they plan to identify and police so called health misinformation
  • In related news, the UK government has published details of a tender worth nearly three quarters of a million pounds for a contractor to trawl social media to identify "harmful disinformation and misinformation narratives". Reclaim the Net has the full story

  • Dr Peter McCullough reports on a new study suggesting 80% of young people diagnosed with vaccine-induced peri- and/or myocarditis following covid injections hadn't recovered after 6 months. The paper raises serious questions about long-term damage to these young people's hearts and risk of future heart issues
  • A paper published in PLOS ONE supporting mandated mask wearing in in Australia has earned an expression of concern after researchers raised numerous concerns over the design and methodology of the study
  • Concerns over the impact of covid injections on women’s menstrual cycles has been validated by the results of a new study using Swedish data, published in The BMJ. The researchers typically downplay the results of the study though despite the data throwing up safety signals. Thorsteinn Siglaugsson analyses the results of the study finding significant risk of issues for both pre- and postmenopausal women despite the authors' attempts to massage the data and make the association disappear. As he notes at the end of his article, the competing interests section makes interesting reading…

The retraction notice cites that following investigation, the paper failed to meet the standards of editorial and scientific soundness required by the journal. The paper’s author has not agreed to the retraction
  • As the UK Covid public inquiry continues in the UK, Joel Smalley shares Dr Clare Craig’s 175-page witness statement (supported by nearly 700 references) on covid jab harms, adding to the evidence available to future historians that is being actively downplayed by governments, health authorities and media
  • Nearly half of critically ill covid patients with severe pneumonia develop secondary ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia. A small study of patients, published in The Journal of Clinical investigation in the intensive care unit at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in the US found that patients with untreated secondary pneumonia and covid were at much higher risk risk of dying
