In this three-part series we examine the extent to which disaster capitalism and the medical-industrial complex turned the pandemic into a ‘golden’ opportunity to enhance corporate profits which took place, in large part, at the taxpayer’s expense through appropriation of public resources. In the first part we examine the rise of this predatory social ideology and the strategies its adherents have employed to assure its success
In this third part we examine the path not taken: a handful of cheap, widely available, home-based therapies—ozone preconditioning, hydroxychloroquine, and light/vitamin treatment—which, had they been implemented early in the pandemic could have reduced morbidity and mortality by 80% or more. We estimate these interventions could have prevented about 4.8 million deaths globally and 768,000 in the US and in the process put an early end to the pandemic.
The purpose of this study is to report on the unprecedented rise in decidual cast shedding (DCS) that occurred in 2021. DCS is historically a rare gynecological event, with less than 40 cases reported in the medical literature over the last 109 years. Previous journal articles on DCS were usually case studies; population prevalence data is non-existent.
In the second part of our trilogy, we begin by examining social policies sponsored by the science community and enacted by policy-makers to curtail the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. Containment /mitigation strategies such as lockdowns came at great social and economic costs and yet failed to meaningfully impact the spread and evolution of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Estrogen receptor (ER) positive tumours are more common than ER negative tumours and tend to have a better prognosis. These tumours respond well to endocrine therapy as compared to ER negative tumours, thus avoiding the harmful effects of chemotherapy. Moreover, since ER positive tumours are associated with slow tumour growth and low histology grade, it increases the overall survival.
The purpose of this study is: first, to review disciplinary threats made to healthcare professionals by their governing bodies in the US; and second, to review medical literature for complications related to the COVID-19 vaccines and data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), particularly those related to pregnant women and women of reproductive age.
Two years into the pandemic, with the number of deaths over five million globally and vaccine-resistant variants continuing to multiply, scientists are in the midst of the most dangerous and ill-conceived experiment in the history of medicine.
Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) surveys precede an awareness or intervention program, it addresses a felt need in a population in which that need exists.
Fundamental to the aether concept is seamless unity, a dynamic continuum of cause and effect, mediated by the opposing conjoined force fields that form the basis of action-at-a-distance and simultaneity. All action and reaction, from the macrocosmic level downward into the subatomic domain, is mediated through interactions between the aether-derived forces of magnetism and dielectricity which, in the end, give rise to space and matter.
In the first part of the article we examined the historical dimensions of the aether concept, In this article, we examine dynamics of the three primary aether modalities in the water-body: The magnetic, the radiant, and the dielectric.
Covid-19 pandemic has hit many countries and put the majority of the public health system to test globally. Mandatory use of facemask was among policies set by the government to contain the spread of the novel disease. But citizens’ attitudes and compliance with these policies are important in controlling the pandemic. We assessed gender-based compliance to Covid-19 protocol (use of face mask) in Jos South, Plateau State, Nigeria.
A year after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic much of the Africa continent started experiencing spikes in the number of COVID-19 cases and related deaths in what was referred to as the third wave of the pandemic. These spikes came right behind the heels of a second wave of the pandemic that barely went unnoticed in Africa.
At the turn of the 20th century medicine and physics seemed to be heading in two opposing if not mutually exclusive directions: medical science had asserted the primacy of the cell and had set out to integrate known chemical principles into cellular functioning; physics, on the other hand, had broken through the barriers of classical Newtonian mechanical laws and established the energetic basis of all physical substance. Something was bound to give.
It is difficult to imagine an area of scientific research, over the past century, that has been more controversial than the diet-heart health question. Even more unsettling is the fact that the hypotheses presented in this scholarly review often directly conflict with or reverse prevailing opinions. For example, many brave researchers are fully aware that dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) peroxidatively degrade to highly toxic lipid oxidation products (LOPs) such as chemically-reactive aldehydes when exposed to high-temperature frying, cooking or processing practices.
To diagnose diseases during gestation period including renal stones, appendicitis, and pulmonary embolism in pregnant patients, computed tomography (CT) can be a golden standard. Due to CT examination, the fetus is prone to receiving a considerable dose which is the result of direct or scattered (external and internal scattered radiation) beams. This article aims to review approaches that are effective in reducing fetal dose in pregnant patients.
In recent months unexpected reports have surfaced claiming the presence of magnetic attraction in the shoulder regions of subjects who had recently received the COVID-19 vaccination. To determine if such claims are legitimate or spurious, a prospective observational study was performed utilizing standard neodymium magnets and non-magnetized paper clips in a rigorously standardized application protocol. Magnets and paper clips were applied over various regions of both deltoid muscles.
Traditional medicines, derived from plants, could present alternative treatment strategy for cancer therapy. One such plant is Momordica charantia (MC) which possesses anti-carcinogenic properties. This study investigated the anticancer effect of an ethanol extract of MC fruit, Kuguacin-J (K-J), an isolated compound from the leaves of MC and cisplatin, either alone or combination on healthy MCF-10A mammary cells and compared with breast cancer MCF-7 and MDAMB-231 cell lines.
Interest in modulating the immune response beyond glucocorticoids has existed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Recent trials have shown promising results with IL-6 inhibitors such as tocilizumab although similar data on Sarilumab is lacking. In this report, we analyze the current evidence on Sarilumab in hospitalized COVID-19 patients to evaluate its efficacy.
Chronic degenerative diseases like obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, fatty liver, have gained high prevalence in the world, due to sedentarism, improper nutritional habits as well as alcohol and tobacco consumption. Studies have shown that regular consumption of breakfast leads to a wide range of benefits, especially for the liver. The liver is a key organ for metabolic homeostasis regulating and governing energy metabolism, mostly providing nutrients for reabsorption.
Multi-organ procurement was performed on a 48-year-old donor after the patient was declared brain dead. A standard approach was performed for two dissections of abdominal organs. During the cold phase of dissection, an additional left sided retro-aortic vein was identified. The second vein hadseparate opening to the inferior vena cava in addition to the normal positioned pre-aortic left renal vein.
