  • Variations in temperature make the effects of neonicotinoid pesticides more deadly for bees. Researchers publishing in Global Change Biology found that the behaviours of Bumblebees are affected not just by the pesticides used, but also by variations in temperature. Cold temperatures might increase the toxicity of pesticides, affecting the behaviour of bees related to movement and food consumption, while high temperatures were found to impact the distance bees are able to fly
  • In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, UK regulators are changing the way clinical trials are approved. Ostensibly the changes will create a system for faster, more flexible and easier approval of clinical trials. Reading between the lines suggests the changes will create a system that makes it easier for Big Pharma to obtain emergency approvals with far less rigour than has previously been required
  • The UK Parliament has ridden roughshod over the massive outcry against the introduction of new legislation which removes regulatory oversight to make it easier for genetically edited organisms to enter the UK food chain. Serious concerns have been expressed not only by the public, but also multiple organisations, over the approval of the Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Bill, all of whom are aware of the potential harms posed by such deregulation. Once Pandora's Box has been opened it won't be possible to close it again!

  • Could gene editing hold the key to healing childhood trauma? A recent op-ed published in The Guardian, explores proposals from scientists suggesting that the use of gene editing techniques could erase the damage caused by childhood trauma and prevent the onset of mental illness later in life. The exploration neglects to mention the far reaching effects of trauma, which affects not just our DNA, but virtually every cell in our body, nor does it consider the detrimental negative effects that such interference might cause.

  • The US Food and Drug Administration is seeking a back door to regulate dietary supplements by introducing mandatory product listing. In principle, building a database of all supplements on sale in the US, sounds sensible. In reality it’s the perfect way for the FDA to pick off and target supplements that the agency believes don’t comply with its 'regulations'. Having defeated similar legislation last year, the ANH-USA team are leading the charge to oppose and defeat the move
  • Children should be exposed to as little electromagnetic radiation as possible in order to protect their health and development. A new assessment of the scientific evidence of the impact of wireless radiation on children’s health, published in Current Problems in Pediatric and Adolescent Health Care, finds that the medical community has a key role to play in protecting children, by educating parents on simple ways to reduce exposure
  • One in 36, 8-year-old children, in the US are on the autistic spectrum according to new figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). An increase from 1 in 44, 8-year-olds in 2018. These figures aren't the lowest available for 2020 though. According to a research letter published in JAMA Pediatrics last year, using data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 1 in 30 children, aged 3-17, in 2020 were diagnosed with an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) (full research letter here). The CDC’s report doesn't comment on what might be causing the continued exponential increase in the numbers of children with ASD. Suffice to say the ‘Autism market’ is projected to soar to over $43 billion by 2031 leaving little appetite to investigate further and stem the tidal wave of ASD

  • More than 155,000 UK citizens have signed a petition calling for a public referendum prior to signing up to the WHO Pandemic Treaty.

  • Data from a new survey commissioned by the British Acupuncture Council, as part of Acupuncture Awareness Week 2023 shows that a staggering 70% of those questioned, would prefer to use a complementary therapy, such as acupuncture, to help manage pain prior to resorting to painkillers. The survey also revealed 36% of those surveyed, would consider working with complementary therapists due to ever-increasing NHS waiting lists, and that 68% of practitioners have seen rise in people seeking help for chronic pain post-covid
  • Lab grown food and feed is set to be banned by the Italian government to protect the country's food heritage. As part of the government's attempts to protect its food industry from technological innovations deemed to be harmful it's changed the name of the agriculture ministry to the 'Ministry for Agriculture and Food Sovereignty'.

Covid News

  • A new study published in Nature seeks to debunk claims that covid jabs are causing increased mortality following covid shots. On the one hand, researchers claim that there’s no significant increase in deaths in those who’ve been covid jabbed, yet on the other, say women are at higher risk of dying from a cardiac event. Using data from the UK Office for National Statistics, (shown to be fatally flawed), the researchers conclude that women in their 20s, injected with a non-mRNA jab, were 3.5 times more likely to die of Covid within 12 weeks of being jabbed, while they saw a ‘slight’ increase in cardiac deaths in young men
  • Robert F Kennedy Jr and the Children’s Health Defense have together filed a class action lawsuit against top federal agencies and officials, including President Biden and Dr Anthony Fauci, alleging they “waged a systematic, concerted campaign” designed to coerce social media companies into censoring free speech
  • Jordan Schachtel marks the 3rd anniversary of the beginning of the coronavirus crisis signalled by the imposition of global lockdowns
  • Phinance Techologies, founded by former BlackRock portfolio manager, Ed Dowd, recently published a report as part of its Vaccine Damage Project, estimating the cost of harms from the covid shots. The report estimates that the human cost, in the US alone, stands at 26.6 million injuries, 1.36 million deaths and 300k excess deaths. While the estimated economic costs total $147.8 billion

  • A class action lawsuit has been launched in the UK by a group of people who've experienced serious adverse reactions following the AstraZeneca covid shots. Lawyers for the group state that the case isn’t about finding fault, but that people weren’t given the full picture in terms of potential adverse reactions prior to agreeing to the jabs (non-paywall report)
  • The Health Advisory & Recovery Team (HART) documents the ‘Banality of evil’ post pandemic to remind people of the ethical and moral wrongs visited on the peoples of the world
  • A new systematic review from Peter Gøtzche and Maryanne Demasi, finds there’s been significant under reporting of adverse reactions, particularly serious events, following covid jabs and that currently published science in this area is of low quality. Current science also often fails to consider a balance of risk vs harms, often downplaying the risks or deliberately excluding them
  • An analysis carried out by Pagina UM (Portugal) of EU adverse event data, found 5,300 reports of serious adverse reactions following covid injection in pregnant women. Of these, 3,361 were attributed to abortions and 246 to fetal deaths. Dr Robert Malone has a translated version of the report on his Substack
