  • So called ‘miracle’ weight loss drugs, such as Ozempic and Saxenda, haven’t been included in the latest World Health Organization (WHO) Essential Medicines List. This is despite the inclusion being proposed by a group of US academics. AWHO expert panel recommended against their inclusion due to the “uncertain long-term clinical benefit and safety in this patient population".
  • Natural farming and agroecological farming methods can produce higher crops yields and a wider diversity of crops than is found with industrialised farming methods. A new study from Andhra Pradesh in India also found natural farming and agroecological farm techniques reduced chemical inputs, which in turn reduced the amount of illness suffered by the farmers, leading to higher productivity rates
  • Calls are being made in the US for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to implement a regulatory pathway for the sale of CBD products in the US. The calls come following a Hearing of the USA’s House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s Subcommittee on Health Care and Financial services, titled ‘Hemp in the Modern World: The Years long wait for FDA Action’
  • UK regulators are seeking to clamp down on natural health practitioners who make claims on their website that contravene guidance from the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the CAP Code by adding guidance to the National Occupational Standards for Complementary and Natural Health Practitioners. The Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC) quietly put out a survey asking for people's opinions about the additions, which are being made by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. The current guidance used by the ASA has been imported from the EU following Brexit. Although the ASA doesn't have legal powers, it works with Trading Standards to enforce requests to make changes to website text.

  • Researchers from the US Department of Agriculture have created a diet consisting of 91% ultra-processed foods (UPF), which it says meets the recommendations from the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA), for a ‘healthy’ diet. Once again we need to dive into the conflicts of interest section to see where the researchers' true interests lie! Whilst it may be possible to construct a supposedly ‘healthy’ diet using mostly UPFs, the true impact of such foods on people’s metabolic health has not been taken into account by either the researchers or US Dietary Guidelines
  • The real dangers of eating high levels of UPFs have been revealed by a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The researchers found that type 2 diabetics eating higher levels of UPFs are at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and dying from any cause.

  • Canadians will no longer be able to access news via Facebook and Instagram as Meta anticipates the Canadian government passing the Online News Act. Although news publishers and broadcasters, both inside and outside of Canada, will still be able to post links for people outside of Canada to read, Canadians will not be able to view them. Meta made a similar threat in Australia in 2021 to force the government to make changes to its Media Bargaining legislation

  • ANH founder, Rob Verkerk PhD, recently joined Doctors for Patients UK for an in depth webinar ‘Cutting through the post-covid smokescreen’. His talk covers a wide range of topics including the use of fear to ‘control’ the public, the use of the misinformation label to censor those sharing views counter to the mainstream narrative, the shutting down of scientific discourse, medical ethics and more. A fascinating discussion focusing on the concerted efforts of ‘the authorities’ to cut down those who dissent and control the narrative through fear. Watch the presentation here
  • People who caught covid within three weeks of receiving their first covid jab, had an up to eight times increased risk of stroke compared to those who didn’t get a post-jab infection according to a new study published in Frontiers in Neurology
  • Moderna is recruiting adults and teenagers to a new trial, called NextCOVE, for its new bivalent booster jab, which is 50:50 the original Wuhan strain + Omicron (both of which have been replaced with new variants). The new booster will be compared to Moderna's original covid jab, rather than a placebo. Participants are being given £1,500 for taking part in the trial. On the subject of potential adverse reactions, as expected, Moderna is minimising the issues and has made no mention of the risk of myocarditis. HART Group asks many pertinent questions including whether the trial is legal and highlights breaches of ethical guidelines such as the Declaration of Helsinki and Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (2005).

  • David Zweig critiques a new Pfizer ad claiming 3 out of 4 US adults are at high risk for severe covid and pulls apart the study that the ad is based on in a new Substack article
  • Not only is our sovereignty at severe risk from the proposed Pandemic Treaty and International Health Regulations amendments there’s now a second threat from the United Nations. ‘Our Common Agenda’ is the United Nations vision to combat global challenges and crises. In a policy paper published earlier this year the UN documents its ‘emergency platform’, which would essentially hand indefinite, extraordinary powers to the UN secretary-general, devoid of legal limitation, similar to those that would handed to the WHO director. The Epoch Times has full details of the attempted power grab
  • Australian doctor and pharmacist, Dr Julian Fidge, is attempting to obtain an injuction from the Federal Court of Australia to stop the continued distribution of Pfizer and Moderna covid jabs in Australia. He is using the Gene Technology Act 2000, which makes it a serious criminal offence to distribute GMO products in Australia without approval from the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR). Both Pfizer and Moderna sought approval from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) but not the OGTR. Rebekah Barnett has all the details
  • Research into a new continuous mRNA manufacturing platform is being funded by the US food & Drug Administration (FDA) to the tune of $82 million in order to accelerate the continued development of mRNA technologies. The grant has been made to researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for a three year program
  • Nearly 3,500 people have signed a petition calling for the retraction of a highly influential paper published in Nature Medicine in March 2020, dismissing the lab-leak theory of covid. Grounds for the retraction are that the authors committed scientific fraud and misconduct. The paper played a key role in diverting attention from gain of function work carried out by the Wuhan lab in China. Recently released internal communications from the paper authors makes it clear that the authors did not support the paper’s conclusions
  • Both the US and UK authorities are warning of an increase in cases of covid. However, rates are still low compared to previous surges

  • What’s, reportedly, the most mutated version of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been found in an immunocompromised patient in Indonesia. This mutation, which contains 113 unique mutations, has been branded the most extreme seen to date. It’s unlikely this variant will cause any major issues, however it does highlight the continued mutation of the virus as it mutates in an attempt to circumvent jab based immunity
  • The 2023 White Coat Summit took place in Washington DC. Prominent doctors, including Drs Robert Malone, Eric Nepute and James Todaro, spoke out against the censorship during the pandemic and the injustices that took place including the complete sidelining of ethics, informed consent and bullying against those that stood up against the narrative. Doctors recounted how they were threatened, silenced or mistreated for sharing the truth and medical opinions that weren’t aligned with the mainstream narrative. Watch the full Summit here
  • A new analysis by statistician and Luzern University professor Dr Konstantin Beck has linked a rise in miscarriages and stillbirth rates in Switzerland with the rollout of covid jabs in conjunction with a significant drop in birth rates in 2022. Dr Beck said the drop in birth rates isn’t due to reduced fertility as the number of women seeking pregnancy tests remained constant through 2021 and 2022. Dr Beck's presentation for Doctors for Covid Ethics can be watched in full here

  • A Letter to the Editor published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) highlights concerns over the validity of a 2021 study that found a 90% reduction in mortality in those that had a covid booster jab. The authors of the letter suggest healthy user bias could have played a role in these results, which could potentially lead to the effectiveness of booster jabs being overestimated. James Lyons-Weiler takes a deep dive into letter and its implications given the FDA’s reliance on the original study as a basis for its approval of the booster jabs.
