More Studies Confirm the COVID Jab Does More Harm Than Good

  • A peer-reviewed scientific review in the Journal of Insulin Resistance, written by cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, calls for the immediate suspension of all COVID shots as real-world data show they cause more harm than good

  • Data from Israel shows myocarditis post-jab is occurring at a rate of 1 in 6,000. Hong Kong data from male children and teens found a rate of 1 in 2,700

  • Data from the British Yellow Card system shows 1 in 120 people who have received at least one mRNA injection suffer an adverse event “that is beyond mild.” In Norway, the rate of serious adverse events post-jab is 1 in 1,000 after two doses of Pfizer

  • Researchers looking at data from the FDA, Health Canada and the Pfizer and Moderna trials concluded the absolute risk of a serious adverse event from the mRNA shots was 1 in 800, which massively exceeds the risk of COVID-19 hospitalization found in randomized controlled trials

  • Leaked audio from a June 2022 meeting between Israeli researchers and the Israeli Ministry of Healthy reveals the Pfizer jab causes long-term adverse effects and is associated with more severe side effects upon rechallenge (i.e., with repeated doses). While the researchers wanted to warn the public, the Ministry altered their final report to say that adverse effects are mild and short-lived. The government then canceled any further research into adverse effects

The COVID jabs are an absolute disaster, with injuries and deaths piling up by the day. Yet so-called health authorities, doctors, media, drug makers and many of the jabbed themselves claim there’s nothing to see here. Ever since their release, brave medical professionals have spoken out against them, calling for a more cautious approach.

Now, a peer-reviewed scientific review,1 2 3 published in two parts4 5 in the Journal of Insulin Resistance calls for the immediate suspension of all COVID shots as real-world data show they cause more harm than good.

According to this paper, “Curing the Pandemic of Misinformation on COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Through Real Evidence-Based Medicine,” authored by cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra:

“In the non-elderly population the ‘number needed to treat’ to prevent a single death runs into the thousands. Re-analysis of randomized controlled trials using the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology suggests a greater risk of serious adverse events from the vaccines than being hospitalized from COVID-19.

Pharmacovigilance systems and real-world safety data, coupled with plausible mechanisms of harm, are deeply concerning, especially in relation to cardiovascular safety.

Mirroring a potential signal from the Pfizer Phase 3 trial, a significant rise in cardiac arrest calls to ambulances in England was seen in 2021, with similar data emerging from Israel in the 16–39-year-old age group.

Conclusion: It cannot be said that the consent to receive these agents was fully informed, as is required ethically and legally. A pause and reappraisal of global vaccination policies for COVID-19 is long overdue.”

In recent months, disability, excess mortality and live birth statistics all point in the same direction. Something horrific started happening around April 2021, and continues to get worse. Something is killing an extraordinary number of people in the prime of their life, who should have decades left to live. Something is causing people to file for permanent disability in numbers we’ve not seen before.

What changed in the world, in 2021? That is the question. The answer is ridiculously simple to answer, yet many choose to drive their heads deeper into the sand than face plain facts. The COVID shots, using mRNA technology to trigger antibody production in a way that had never been used before, were rolled out in 2021 under emergency use authorization. That’s what changed.

At the time of their rollout, human trials were far from finished, and much of their value had already been destroyed by unblinding the trials and offering the real injection to everyone in the placebo groups.6

This year, we’ve also come to realize that Pfizer, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all repeatedly lied about the safety and effectiveness of the shots, as Pfizer’s own trial data show they’re about as dangerous as they come.

The only reason we now know this is because the FDA was sued and forced by a judge to release the trial data they initially wanted to keep hidden for 75 years. Pfizer data is now being released at a pace of 55,000 pages per month,7 and these batches have proven to be a treasure trove of bad and worse news.

Pfizer hid serious injuries, falsely categorizing almost all of them as unrelated to the shot without investigation, and misrepresented data showing massive risks as being of no concern. Participants who suffered serious injuries were often simply withdrawn from the trial, and their data excluded from the results.8

Real-world data now conclusively show these risks are extremely real. For example, Pfizer’s Phase 3 clinical trial showed an increased risk for cardiac problems, and during 2021, U.K. ambulance services recorded an extra 27,800 cardiac arrest calls above the national average in previous years, or about 500 per day9 10 — and disproportionally among the young.11 Importantly, COVID-19 cannot account for this rise, as the relevant increase began in the spring of 2021.

In his paper, Malhotra details his personal journey from staunch COVID jab proponent to concerned questioner. He got Pfizer’s two-dose regimen at the end of January 2021. You can see more of Maholtra’s efforts in the lecture he recently gave captured in the video above.

A few months later, his father, who also got the shot, suffered cardiac arrest six months after his second dose. The post-mortem findings were “shocking and inexplicable,” Malhotra writes, and got him to take another look at the data.

“After six months of critically appraising the data myself, speaking to eminent scientists involved in COVID-19 research, vaccine safety and development, and two investigative medical journalists, I have slowly and reluctantly concluded that contrary to my own initial dogmatic beliefs, Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine is far from being as safe and effective as we first thought,” Malhotra writes.12

He goes on to review how post-mortem examination revealed his father, who was extremely active and fit, had severe blockages in two of the three major arteries. His left anterior descending artery was 90% blocked and his right coronary was 75% blocked. The last scan, “a few years earlier,” according to Malhotra, had revealed perfect blood flow and no obstructions. He continues:13

“I couldn’t explain his post-mortem findings, especially as there was no evidence of an actual heart attack … This was precisely my own special area of research. That is, how to delay progression of heart disease and even potentially reverse it … Then, in November 2021, I was made aware of a peer-reviewed abstract published in Circulation, with concerning findings.

In over 500 middle-aged patients under regular follow up, using a predictive score model based on inflammatory markers that are strongly correlated with risk of heart attack, the mRNA vaccine was associated with significantly increasing the risk of a coronary event within five years from 11% pre-mRNA vaccine to 25% 2–10 weeks post mRNA vaccine.

An early and relevant criticism of the validity of the findings was that there was no control group, but nevertheless, even if partially correct, that would mean that there would be a large acceleration in progression of coronary artery disease, and more importantly heart attack risk, within months of taking the jab.

I wondered whether my father’s Pfizer vaccination, which he received six months earlier, could have contributed to his unexplained premature death and so I began to critically appraise the data.”

Malhotra reviews a number of data points in the paper, including:14

  • Pfizer data showing there were four cardiac arrests in the injection group and only one in the placebo group.

  • The misleading use of relative risk reduction (95%) when speaking of effectiveness, rather than absolute risk reduction, which was only 0.84%.

  • 119 people would have to be injected to prevent one positive test, which may or may not be indicative of infection.

  • Pfizer’s trial found no statistically significant reduction in serious illness or COVID mortality from the injection over the course of six months (the length of the trial). Moreover, the risk of serious COVID-19 infection in the placebo group was only 0.04%, showing just how low the risk of serious illness was in the first place, and this despite the fact that the regions chosen for the trial were chosen for their perceived high prevalence of infection.

  • While there were two deaths from COVID in the placebo group and only one COVID death in the injection group, all-cause mortality over a longer period revealed 19 deaths in the injection group and 17 deaths in the placebo group.

  • The pediatric trial used a surrogate measure of antibody levels rather than reduction in symptomatic infection, even though there was no known correlation between antibody levels and protection from infection. The FDA even warns that: “[R]esults from currently authorized SARS-COV-2 antibody tests should not be used to evaluate a person’s level of immunity or protection from COVID-19 at any time, and especially after the person received a COVID-19 vaccination.”

Malhotra goes on to describe how he extrapolated data to determine the level of protection these mRNA shots provide against COVID-related death:15

“Now that we know what the published trial did and did not show in terms of the vaccine efficacy, we can attempt to extrapolate what the effect of the vaccine would be in reducing mortality or any other adverse outcome from the virus.

If there is a 1 in 119 chance the vaccine protects you from getting symptomatic infection from ancestral variants, then to find the protection against death, this figure (n = 119) must be multiplied by the number of infections that lead to a single death for each age group.

This would give (for up to two months after the inoculation) the absolute risk reduction (for death) from the vaccine. For example, if my risk at age 44 from dying from Delta (should I get infected with it) is 1 in 3,000, then the absolute risk reduction from the vaccine protecting me from death is 1 over 3,000 multiplied by 119, that is, 1 per 357,000 …

From observational data it is possible to calculate the number who would need to be vaccinated to prevent a COVID-19 death. For example, comparing the population death rates during the Delta wave gives 230 for people over 80s needing to be vaccinated to prevent a single death in that period with that number rising to 520 for people in their 70s and 10,000 for people in their 40s …

Depending on your age, several hundreds or thousands of people like you would need to be injected in order to prevent one person from dying from the Delta variant of COVID-19 over a period of around three months.

For the over 80s, this figure is at least 230, but it rises the younger you are, reaching at least 2,600 for people in their 50s, 10,000 for those in their 40s, and 93,000 for those between 18 and 29 years. For omicron, which has been shown to be 30% – 50% less lethal, meaning significantly more people would need to be vaccinated to prevent one death.”

Next, Malhotra reviews the hams, noting that one of the most common side effects reported is myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart, especially among young men. He rejects health authorities’ claim that myocarditis is far more prevalent in those who suffer serious COVID infection, stating:16

“Incidence of myocarditis rocketed from spring 2021 when vaccines were rolled out to the younger cohorts having remained within normal levels for the full year prior, despite COVID-19.

With the most up-to-date evidence, a paper from Israel found that the infection itself, prior to roll- out of the vaccine, conferred no increase in the risks of either myocarditis or pericarditis from COVID-19, strongly suggesting that the increases observed in earlier studies were because of the mRNA vaccines, with or without COVID-19 infections as an additional risk in the vaccinated …

Although vaccine-induced myocarditis is not often fatal in young adults, MRI scans reveal that, of the ones admitted to hospital, approximately 80% have some degree of myocardial damage. It is like suffering a small heart attack and sustaining some — likely permanent — heart muscle injury.”

Data from Israel shows myocarditis post-jab is occurring at a rate of 1 in 6,000. Hong Kong data from male children and teens found a rate of 1 in 2,700. Data from the British Yellow Card system shows 1 in 120 people who have received at least one mRNA injection suffer an adverse event “that is beyond mild.”

In Norway, Malhotra notes, the rate of serious adverse events post-jab is 1 in 1,000 after two doses of Pfizer. These are injuries that are life changing for the worse.

In all, nearly 500,000 adverse events had been reported to the Yellow Card system when Malhotra wrote this paper, which he points out is “unprecedented in the modern medical era and equals the total number of reports received in the first 40 years of the Yellow Card reporting system (for all medicines — not just vaccines) up to 2020.”

The same trend is seen in the U.S., where the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received more adverse event reports for the COVID jabs than all other vaccines over the last 30 years combined. Malhotra writes:

“As with the UK’s system, the level of reports — including serious ones — associated with COVID-19 vaccines is completely unprecedented. For example, over 24,000 deaths have now been recorded in VAERS as of March 2, 2022; 29% of these occurred within 48 h of injection, and half within two weeks.

The average reporting rate prior to 2020 was less than 300 deaths per annum. One explanation often given for this is that the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out is unprecedented in scope; however, this is not valid, since (for the last decade at any rate) the United States has administered 150 million – 200 million vaccinations annually.”

Another criticism of VAERS is that ‘anyone can make an entry,’ yet, in fact, an analysis of a sample of 250 early deaths suggested that the vast majority are hospital or physician entries, and knowingly filing a false VAERS report is a violation of Federal law punishable by fine and imprisonment.

Given that VAERS was set up to generate early signals of potential harm for new vaccines, and was instrumental in doing so for several products, it seems perverse to only now criticize it as unreliable when there seem to have been no changes in the way it operates.”

It has been estimated that serious adverse effects that are officially reported are actually a gross underestimate, and this should be borne in mind … For example, a paper by David Kessler (a former FDA Commissioner) cites data suggesting that as few as 1% of serious adverse events are reported to the FDA. Similarly, in relation to the Yellow Card scheme in the United Kingdom, it has been estimated that only 10% of serious adverse effects are reported.”

Malhotra also cites a recent study17 “coauthored by some of the most trusted medical scientists in the world in relation to data transparency,” which looked at data from the FDA, Health Canada and the Pfizer and Moderna trials.

“Researchers looking at data from the FDA, Health Canada and the Pfizer and Moderna trials concluded the absolute risk of a serious adverse event from the mRNA shots was 1 in 800, which massively exceeds the risk of COVID-19 hospitalization found in randomized controlled trials.”

They concluded the absolute risk of a serious adverse event from the mRNA shots was 1 in 800, which massively exceeds the risk of COVID-19 hospitalization found in randomized controlled trials.

“Given these observations, and reappraisal of the randomized controlled trial data of mRNA products, it seems difficult to argue that the vaccine roll-out has been net beneficial in all age groups … and when the possible short-, medium- and unknown longer-term harms are considered (especially for multiple injections, robust safety data for which simply does not exist), the roll-out into the entire population seems, at best, a reckless gamble,” Malhotra writes.18

“It’s important to acknowledge that the risks of adverse events from the vaccine remain constant, whereas the benefits reduce over time, as new variants are (1) less virulent and (2) not targeted by an outdated product.

Having appraised the data, it remains a real possibility that my father’s sudden cardiac death was related to the vaccine. A pause and reappraisal of vaccination Policies for COVID-19 is long overdue.”

In related news, leaked audio from a June 2022 meeting between Israeli researchers and the Ministry of Healthy reveals the researchers knew the COVID shots were associated with serious risks and wanted to alert the public.

However, whereas the researchers pointed out evidence showing the Pfizer jabs cause long-term adverse effects and are associated with more severe side effects upon rechallenge (i.e., with repeated doses), the Ministry altered the researcher’s final report to say that adverse effects are mild and short-lived. The government then canceled any further research into adverse effects.

At the end of September 2022, GB News interviewed Dr. Yaffa Shir Raz, who broke the story internationally19 (see video above for leaked audio and GB’s report).20 21 Importantly, the researchers noted the phenomenon of rechallenge is very strong evidence of causality, meaning the shots are definitely causing the problems reported.

However, they also warned the Ministry of Health that they’d have to be careful with the wording and think “medical-legal,” as the evidence would expose the government to liability, since they’d not been upfront with the risks and had endorsed the shots. The Ministry, apparently, decided to simply alter the conclusions of the study and close down further investigation rather than risk liability.

At the same time as more and more damning data are coming to light, Pfizer and Moderna are both seeking emergency use authorization for their bivalent COVID boosters for children. Moderna is seeking authorization for children ages 6 through 17, while Pfizer’s shot is for children aged 5 through 11.22 As reported by Reuters September 23, 2022:23

“… the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it expects COVID-19 vaccine boosters targeting circulating variants of the virus to be available for children aged 5-11 years by mid-October.

Moderna’s mRNA-1273.222, a bivalent booster shot, contains the dominant BA.4/BA.5 variants along with the original coronavirus strain. The updated vaccine is already authorized for adults, while rival Pfizer’s bivalent vaccine is authorized as a booster dose for children over 12 years of age.”

Considering how reckless the FDA and CDC have been so far, there’s little doubt they’ll authorize these reformulated boosters for children, even though they’ve only been tested for antibody levels in mice. Meanwhile, in the real world, the injuries and deaths continue to pile up.

Were there any sanity and humanity left inside the walls of our health agencies, these shots would be pulled from the market without delay. Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case, which means We the People are the ones who must put a stop to the carnage by educating each other and simply saying “NO” to these and all future mRNA shots.

GMO Purple Tomatoes May Hit Stores Soon

  • The USDA favorably reviewed genetically engineered purple tomatoes, developed by Norfolk Plant Sciences

  • The USDA found the GE plant is “unlikely to pose an increased plant pest risk compared to other cultivated tomatoes and is not subject to regulation …”

  • This says nothing of GE purple tomatoes’ potential to wreak havoc on human health but moves the plants one step closer to reaching your grocery store

  • The GMO purple tomatoes were engineered to be rich in anthocyanins, the pigments that give blueberries, blackberries and certain other deeply-hued produce their color

  • Scientists used two transcription factors from snapdragon plants to increase anthocyanins in tomatoes

  • Considering there are already anthocyanin-rich foods found in nature, it’s unnecessary, and potentially dangerous, to genetically engineer one using a tomato infused with snapdragon genes

Nothing signals summer like a red, ripe juicy tomato, but soon this mainstay of backyard gardens and farmers markets may be met with a new kid on the block — a genetically engineered (GE) purple tomato.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced in September 2022 that it had favorably reviewed the genetically modified organism (GMO) developed by Norfolk Plant Sciences. “The tomato was modified to alter its color and enhance its nutritional quality,” the USDA noted, finding that the GE plant is “unlikely to pose an increased plant pest risk compared to other cultivated tomatoes and is not subject to regulation …”1

While this says nothing of GE purple tomatoes’ potential to wreak havoc on human health, it moves the plants one step closer to reaching your grocery store. In addition to being altered for taste and nutritional purposes, the GE tomato has a longer shelf life than red tomatoes.2

How did the purple tomatoes come to be? They were developed by biochemist Cathie Martin, a professor at the U.K.’s University of East Anglia, along with project leader John Innes Centre. Martin, who has studied flower pigments for decades, engineered tomatoes that were rich in anthocyanins, the pigments that give blueberries, blackberries and certain other deeply hued produce their color.3

In 2008, Martin and colleagues used two transcription factors from snapdragon plants to increase anthocyanins in tomatoes. “Expression of the two transgenes enhanced the hydrophilic antioxidant capacity of tomato fruit threefold and resulted in fruit with intense purple coloration in both peel and flesh,” they wrote in Nature Biotechnology that year.4

Further, when they fed the purple tomatoes to cancer-susceptible mice, it led to a “significant extension of life span.”5 Speaking with CNN, Martin suggested that the GMO tomatoes may alter human health via multiple mechanisms, stating, “It’s not like a drug, where there’s a single target. It’s about them having antioxidant capacity. It also may influence the composition of the microbiome, so it’s better able to deal with digestion of other nutrients.”6

In 2013, Martin again published research related to the GMO tomatoes, this time showing that the higher anthocyanin content doubled their shelf life compared to regular tomatoes. “The increased antioxidant capacity of purple fruit likely slows the processes of overripening,” according to the study, which also found that the purple tomatoes had reduced susceptibility to gray mold.7

Martin established Norfolk Plant Sciences to market the GMO creation. The company plans to go after approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration next, then work toward commercialization. Testing to find the best consumer markets for the GE purple tomatoes is slated for 2023.8

Flavonoids are a group of polyphenols, phytonutrients found in most fruits and vegetables. There are more than 6,000 unique flavonoids, but as a group, they’re most well-known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and have been found to lower the risk of many chronic inflammatory conditions.

Anthocyanins, specifically — found in red-blue plant pigments that give berries, pomegranates and other foods their red, blue and purple color — have been shown to:9

  • Improve blood sugar control

  • Normalize blood pressure and enhance capillary strength

  • Lower oxidative stress and inflammation

  • Inhibit platelet formation

  • Prevent buildup of arterial plaque

  • Increase NAD+ level

So, there are many reasons you may want to include more anthocyanin-rich foods in your diet — and doing so is easy. Just eat more berries, one of the healthiest natural foods on the planet. Considering there are already anthocyanin-rich foods found in nature, it’s unnecessary to genetically engineer one using a tomato infused with snapdragon genes.

Further, if the history of health risks tied to GE foods is any indication, any benefit from increasing your antioxidant intake via GMO purple tomatoes is likely to be offset by the adverse effects possible from consuming GMOs. As noted by The Institute for Responsible Technology:10

“The process of genetic engineering creates mutations and deletions that can happen all throughout the DNA. As a result, allergens can increase if it’s already existing in the food or through the introduction of a new allergen. Same thing with toxins; same thing with carcinogens; same thing with nutrition issues.

And all of that has been found in GMOs, both at the experimental level and also even at the commercial level. GMO corn, for example, has higher levels of existing toxins and a whole new allergen … So the process of genetic engineering is like throwing a dart at our DNA and saying ‘we’ll just turn this one off or turn this one on or make this one higher,’ disregarding the collateral damage.”

One notable difference the GE purple tomatoes have from many commercialized GE foods is that they’ll be easy to spot in the supermarket. Natural purple tomato varieties do exist, but it’s only their skin that’s purple. The GMO variety has purple skin and purple flesh, making it easy to avoid for those wishing to opt-out of the GMO experiment.

Nathan Pumplin, Norfolk’s CEO of U.S. commercial business, told CNN he believes this will be a selling point, striking a “cord with people in this very basic way … it takes no imagination to see that it’s different,” he said. “It really allows people to make a choice … a purple tomato — you either choose or choose not to consume.”11

Often, this isn’t the case, as producers may try to sneak GMOs onto the market with no labeling, making it impossible for consumers to know what they’re eating. This occurred in 2019 with a gene-edited soybean oil created by biotech company Calyxt.

Calyxt’s soybean oil, Calyno, contains two inactivated genes, resulting in an oil with no trans fats, increased oleic acid and a longer shelf life. Along with refusing to identify the first buyer of its gene-edited high-oleic soybean oil in 2019, Calyxt marketed its product as “non-GMO,” although it’s clearly genetically engineered.12

By 2021, however, Calyno was described as a “flop,” as farmers became reluctant to purchase the GE soybean seeds due to lower crop yields. “The Calyxt business model of selling seeds to farmers and then processing the high oleic oil to sell to food service companies and crushing plants hasn’t been profitable,” The Organic & Non-GMO Report explained, adding:13

“Calyxt’s gene edited soybean is a good example of a genetically engineered crop failing to live up to the hype surrounding it. For the past 25 years, proponents of GMO crops have claimed that they would help to “feed the world,” produce more nutritious foods, increase food security, and other claims. But they have failed to deliver on the promises, and there remain two predominant GMO traits, herbicide tolerance and insect resistance.”

There are quite a few GE fruits and vegetables in development; purple tomatoes are just one example. Apples genetically engineered to resist browning when sliced or bruised appeared in select grocery stores in the U.S. Midwest in 2017.14 Developed by Okanagan Specialty Fruits, the apples are engineered to suppress the production of the enzyme — polyphenol oxidase (PPO) — that causes browning.

The first two varieties of the GE Arctic Apple — Arctic Golden and Arctic Granny — were deregulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2015. A third variety, Arctic Fuji, was created in 2016,15 while in 2019 the company announced Arctic Golden and Arctic Granny fresh slices, which they suggested was the perfect option to get kids to eat more apples.16

It’s expected that Arctic Fuji apples will finally come to the market in the fall of 2022, while the company has also released Arctic ApBitz, dried apple snacks created to “use all of the Arctic apples regardless of size or shape.”17 Meanwhile, a group of U.S. and Mexican scientists sequenced the genomes of Mexican and well-known Hass avocados in 2019.

Their study, published in PNAS,18 reveals “ancient evolutionary relationships” that give clues to the fruit’s origins but also opens the floodgates to future genetic modification of this already perfect food. Genetic engineering has also been touted as the only way to save the banana — the most popular variety of which (Cavendish) is incredibly prone to diseases and has even been said to be at risk of extinction.19

Other fresh fruits and vegetables that are currently available in GMO varieties include potatoes, summer squash, papayas and pink pineapples.20 “Pinkglow” or “rosé” pineapples, which are only available in the U.S. and Canada,21 were approved by the FDA in 2016 but only recently have reached stores.

Genetically engineered by Del Monte Fresh Produce, the pink fruits “produce lower levels of the enzymes already in conventional pineapple that convert the pink pigment lycopene to the yellow pigment beta carotene,” according to the FDA.22 The GE pineapple isn’t marketed as GMO. Instead, its only label is “extra sweet pink flesh pineapple” on tags attached to the fruit’s crown.23

Of note, while the pineapples are only sold in the U.S. and Canada, they’re grown in Costa Rica and, according to Del Monte, not available in Hawaii — “Hawaii prohibits the shipment of any pineapple into their state.”24 As far as the GMO crops that are most widely available, corn ranks near the top, as more than 90% of corn grown in North America is genetically engineered.25 Other high-risk crops, meaning a GMO version is widely available, include:26

  • Alfalfa

  • Canola

  • Corn

  • Cotton

  • Papaya

  • Potato

  • Soy

  • Sugar beet

  • Zucchini

Does the world need an extra sweet pink pineapple or a purple tomato with the same antioxidants already found in naturally purple berries? Not at all. It’s not about feeding the world, as the biotech industry often parrots, it’s about patenting it. The Non-GMO Project explains:27

“Nearly all GMOs are used to make animal feed or automobile fuel — not food for humans. When GMOs are in human food, they tend to show up as non-nutritious processed ingredients such as oils and sugars or preservatives and emulsifiers. GMO crops are not about feeding the world but about patented ownership of the food supply. After the Dow-Dupont and Bayer-Monsanto mergers, just three chemical companies now control about 60 percent of the world’s seed supply.”

The health risks of consuming GMOs are unknown. It’s an ongoing experiment, one that also has repercussions for the environment. “GMOs are a direct extension of chemical agriculture and are developed and sold by the world’s biggest chemical companies,” the Non-GMO Project continued. “The long-term impacts of GMOs are unknown, and once released into the environment these novel organisms cannot be recalled.”28

Because avoiding GMOs isn’t always as easy as avoiding purple-fleshed tomatoes, choose organic or biodynamically grown food as much as possible. For now, in the U.S. all foods labeled organic are also non-GMO. According to the USDA:29

“The use of genetic engineering, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), is prohibited in organic products. This means an organic farmer can’t plant GMO seeds, an organic cow can’t eat GMO alfalfa or corn, and an organic soup producer can’t use any GMO ingredients.”

Fauci calls for Beijing to be transparent about COVID origins

Image: Fauci calls for Beijing to be transparent about COVID origins

(Natural News) White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has called for greater transparency from the Chinese government regarding the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

The infectious disease expert told the Atlantic‘s Ross Andersen he is “keeping a completely open mind” about how COVID-19 first emerged in the central Chinese province of Wuhan in 2019. Fauci also remarked that Beijing is “probably” withholding information from the international community.

“You [want to] keep an open mind that it could have been anything that happened,” he said. “The fact is, as a society when something occurs that looks like even if it is naturally coming out of China – they will be secretive about it because of this feeling that they’re gonna get blamed for something.”

Fauci advised that the best thing to do would be to open up Wuhan’s wet markets, which are now closed, for any investigation. He added: “If we were able to go and do surveillance easily in China, we would get a lot more information than we have now.”

The medical advisor’s remarks contradicted his earlier stance on the origins of COVID-19. He and other health authorities adamantly insisted that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally from an animal host, jumping to humans afterward. In a 2020 letter, the outgoing director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) dismissed the possibility of the virus leaking from a laboratory as a conspiracy theory.

Evidence reveals extent of Fauci’s involvement in SARS-CoV-2

Many experts, however, believe that COVID-19’s origins lie in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). They presented sizable amount of evidence to support this claim.

Brighteon.TV

Dr. Lawrence Tabak, acting director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), divulged Fauci’s involvement in gain-of-function research to Rep. James Comer (R-KY). He revealed in a letter that the infectious disease expert led a study on the manipulation of a bat coronavirus called WIV1.

WIV researchers grafted spike proteins from other coronaviruses onto WIV1 to see if the modified virus would be capable of binding in a mouse that had the ACE2 receptors found in humans. These receptors are the areas where the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds. Ultimately, the modified virus reproduced more rapidly and made test mice more ill than the unmodified virus.

Moreover, Fauci’s NIAID gave New York-based EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) annual grants from 2014 until 2020. Of the almost $3.75 million total amount of grant funding given to EHA, more than $600,000 was sent to the WIV laboratory.

During a Congressional hearing in May 2021, Fauci testified that the NIH “has not ever funded gain-of-function research in the WIV.”

But this was proven otherwise by a letter penned by molecular biologist Richard H. Ebright, who tweeted that the NIH “corrects untruthful assertions by [former] NIH Director [Francis] Collins and Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan. The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021.” (Related: NIH contradicts Fauci, admits funding gain-of-function research at Wuhan lab.)

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) replied to Ebright’s letter in a tweet. Cotton said “Fauci knew” and called for his investigation and prosecution “to the fullest extent of the law.”

OIG audit reveals majority of NIH-funded trials FAILED to meet federal requirements

Image: OIG audit reveals majority of NIH-funded trials FAILED to meet federal requirements

(Natural News) Even before the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, American citizens were advised by health officials, Big Pharma and mainstream media to “trust science.” But an audit of trials funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) revealed that majority of them were not able to meet federal requirements.

In August last year, the Department of Health and Human Services released the results of an audit that was conducted to determine whether the NIH ensured that the Intramural and Extramural clinical trials it funded have complied with Federal reporting requirements.

According to the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the NIH is responsible for ensuring that NIH-funded Intramural and Extramural clinical trials are reported on the public website ClinicalTrials.gov.

Posting the results of clinical trials on ClinicalTrials.gov provides the public information that is available for understanding the safety and effectiveness of interventions.

The OIG specifically examined all 72 NIH-funded Intramural and Extramural clinical trials “for which Federal law and NIH policy required the results to be reported in calendar year 2019 or 2020.”

It’s not if any of the 72 studies involved COVID-19-related interests, such as vaccine trials. Below are the OIG’s findings:

  • More than 50 percent of the studies audited (37 out of 72) were non-compliant with federal reporting requirements.
  • 12 of the studies submitted their results late.
  • 25 of the studies never submitted their results.

Not posting study findings is one way to cover negative results about intervention safety and effectiveness. This practice is called publication bias, or “the failure to publish the results of a study on the basis of the direction or strength of the study findings,” said the NIH. (Related: Clinical trials for mRNA FLU SHOTS already underway.)

The OIG summarized other key findings from their audit, which include:

  • The NIH did not always check if responsible parties submitted clinical trial results.
  • The NIH did not have adequate procedures to confirm that responsible parties for NIH-funded clinical trials adhered to federal reporting guidelines.
  • The benefits (and risks) of clinical trials may not be fully realized when federal reporting requirements are not met.

Audit revelations regarding past NIH-funded research highlight government failures during COVID-19 pandemic

The audit was conducted because the OIG’s preliminary review of data from ClinicalTrials.gov revealed that “the results of most NIH-funded clinical trials that were completed in calendar year 2018 were not posted.”

This realization of clinical trial failures highlights the shocking but not surprising admission by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In a video recently distributed to CDC employees about the agency’s inept handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Walensky said: “To be frank, we are responsible for some pretty dramatic, pretty public mistakes, from testing to data to communications.”

If the CDC’s director herself knows the agency is making mistakes, it shouldn’t be surprising that the public refuses to blindly trust the alleged “science” behind COVID-19 vaccines.

US military stockpiles at “dangerously low levels” not seen in decades due to military aid shipments to Ukraine

Image: US military stockpiles at “dangerously low levels” not seen in decades due to military aid shipments to Ukraine

(Natural News) Analysts from the Bank of America have warned that the support the United States is providing Ukraine is pushing the country’s military stockpiles to “dangerously low levels” not seen in decades.

America has sent tens of billions of dollars worth of military aid to Ukraine. Part of that aid – worth approximately $8.4 billion – comes from military equipment taken from the Department of Defense‘s (DOD) own weapons stockpiles. It was procured through an authority known as “presidential drawdown.” (Related: Costly war: American aid to Ukraine about to hit $65 billion.)

“Presidential drawdowns have pushed U.S. weapons stockpiles to dangerously low levels that have not been seen for decades,” wrote the analysts. “On several ground systems, DOD officials have indicated that ammunition stocks have dwindled to levels that would be considered problematic during wartime.”

The analysts noted that President Joe Biden has drawn from crucial military stockpiles at least 20 times since Aug. 2021 through his presidential drawdown authority. The federal government is already seeking the help of major defense contractors to restock depleted inventories.

The Bank of America analysts noted that some of the largest defense contractors like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics have already been given $1.2 billion worth of contracts to replenish stockpiles. These contracts include:

  • $624 million for new FIM-92 Stinger man-portable surface-to-air missile systems
  • $352 million for new FGM-148 Javelin portable anti-tank missile systems
  • $33 million for new M142 High Mobile Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS)

America continues to provide military aid to Ukraine despite depleting stockpiles

One of the biggest concerns of defense officials is the flow of American-made ammunition into Ukraine, including for handheld firearms and for larger weapons systems like artillery pieces.

Brighteon.TV

Since the beginning of Russia’s special military operation in late February, the U.S. has sent the following to Ukraine:

  • 126 155mm Howitzers and up to 806,000 155mm artillery rounds
  • 20 105mm Howitzers and 180,000mm artillery rounds
  • 20 120mm mortar systems and 85,000 120mm mortar rounds
  • Over 40,000 anti-armor systems like Javelins
  • Over 1,400 anti-aircraft systems like Stingers
  • Over 10,000 grenade launchers and small arms
  • Over 60 million rounds of small arms ammunition

The military has declined to say how many rounds of artillery it had in its stockpiles at the start of the year due to national security concerns. But one defense official who spoke with the Wall Street Journal noted that the level of 155mm artillery rounds in storage has become “uncomfortably low” in recent weeks.

While the levels aren’t critical at the moment because the U.S. isn’t engaged in any major military conflict, the official noted that it is not at the level they would like to go into combat.

Defense industry officials familiar with the situation noted that the potential shortage in ammunition isn’t due to a lack of funds. But the Pentagon has yet to actually set aside money to address the issue. Furthermore, since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, industry officials have complained that the Pentagon hasn’t been communicating what it needs from defense companies.

The supply lines for reinforcing the country’s stockpiles are still dormant. Companies noted that they are already producing ammunition, including 155mm and 180mm artillery rounds, but not yet in the capacity that will allow the U.S. to replenish its stocks before it is depleted due to the shipments of military aid heading to Ukraine.

Worse yet, industry analysts note that it will take between 13 to 18 months from the time the Pentagon orders more ammunition before the defense industry finishes manufacturing. Replenishing stockpiles for more sophisticated weaponry such as missiles for HIMARS, Javelin and Stinger platforms will take even longer.
