There’s no question that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but there remains a lot to discover about the ways physical activity positively influences the human body. A new study has delved into the mechanics of muscle maintenance, finding that even short stints on a bike can boost the activity of the “death marker protein,” which clears out damage to keep things healthy and in working order.
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
COVID-19 has a much higher death rate than that of the seasonal flu, the experts say. We mustn’t compare it to the flu. This has been the intonation almost since SARS-CoV-2 was discovered. It’s like comparing apples to oranges, blah, blah, blah.
In March, Dr. Anthony Fauci said COVID-19 is far deadlier than the flu. “The flu has a mortality of 0.1 percent, this has a mortality of 10 times that,” warned Fauci.
Early on we heard that the novel coronavirus mortality rate was catastrophic relative to that of the flu. “COVID-19, has caused more than 1.4 million illnesses and 85,000 deaths in the U.S. as of May 14, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.”
And it’s far worse today, we’re told, as we just recently surpassed the 100,000-deaths threshold.
One of the disastrous effects of diabetes is the harm it can cause to the retina, with this degeneration of blood vessels in the eye now the leading cause of new blindness in working-age adults. An international team of scientists has developed technology that could pick up this so-called diabetic retinopathy in its early stages, using a standard smartphone as the basis for a low-cost diagnostic method that could greatly improve care in developing regions.
This guy should have been fired over a month ago!!

Fauci changes tune, now says second COVID-19 wave may never happen — and mask-wearing is symbolic
Dr. Anthony Fauci now says that a second wave of COVID-19 may not even happen and that wearing a mask is largely symbolic at this point
In a Wednesday interview with CNN’s “Newsroom,” Fauci — member of the White House’s coronavirus task force — said that a second COVID-19 wave is not necessarily inevitable.

Why the Left is Weaponizing Science
According to some “experts,” science can sometimes be settled, meaning that in certain areas of study, the evidence has been deemed so overwhelming and indisputable that further debate is not only unnecessary, it is forbidden. Only one interpretation of this evidence is possible. However, science is really nothing more than a tool, developed by humans for the purposes of studying our universe and the world on which we live. And scientists are human beings, which means they are prone to making mistakes. It would be just as silly to genuflect as a show of reverence to science as it would be for a carpenter to worship his hammer. It is helpful to remember that even the person who graduates from medical school at the very bottom of the class has still earned the right to be called “doctor.”

Election season is heating up and here come the inevitable polls produced by leftist polling organizations, designed to demoralize conservatives.
I delve into the latest to show just how skewed one can make the results and why.
The CDC admits it has been posting incorrect Covid-19 numbers, yet what are we told?
Okay, that’s ridiculous you say? Well, it’s not as far fetched as you may think.
I’ve been half-joking about this for over a month – that it doesn’t matter what a person dies from, it will somehow be attributed to coronavirus.
Then I see this from the Blaze:
Washington health official says state counted some gunshot victims as COVID-19 deaths
Sabo Street Art Calls Out California, L.A. Coronavirus Lockdown Overreach
The Los Angeles street artist known as Sabo is no fan of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and has plastered the L.A. area with posters depicting the Democrat governor as a character out of American Psycho.
Sabo put up his latest street art series in Venice Beach, Hollywood, and other high-traffic destinations around L.A. County. One poster shows Gov. Newsom as the Christian Bale character from the 2000 movie American Psycho, renamed “California Psycho.”

San Diego official reveals only six of county’s nearly 200 COVID-deaths are ‘pure, solely coronavirus’ deaths
San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond is pushing back against California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order, revealing that most of his county’s coronavirus-deaths were not directly caused by the virus.
In a radio interview last week, Desmond said only six of the COVID-19 deaths in his county were “purely, solely” from coronavirus, the San Diego Tribune reported.
