Facts vs. Fiction Regarding Covid-19

There are plenty of scientific facts that are relatively easy to access regarding Covid-19. And not at all surprising, the science doesn’t support the hyper-politicized cesspool of misinformation promoted by those who wish only to control our behavior and movement.

Will Witt interviewed Dr. Jeff Barke about the virus – what is causing the recent “spike” in cases, the misreporting and general bad advice given to the  public – like not allowing schools to reopen.

He also discusses who is and is not all vulnerable, the myth of mask wearing, its false sense of security and how it may actually be harmful to do so.

He and Will discuss and dispel this and many other falsities in the following Prager U video. I urge everyone to encourage as many people as possible to watch this:

Calculate Your Dog’s Age with a Epigenetic Clock

Scientists have developed a new formula for calculating the physical age of dogs
Scientists have developed a new formula for calculating the physical age of dogs

For a rough idea of a dog’s physiological age, a popular approach is to simply multiply its actual age by seven, but new research upends this piece of conventional wisdom. Scientists have developed a new molecular tool described as an “epigenetic clock,” which they say offers a more precise picture of a dog’s age in human years by drilling into the rate of molecular changes in their DNA. read more

Close Everything because of the Virus – Except our Southern Border?

from Conservative Review:

The worst Texas coronavirus increase? On the BORDER

When New York and New Jersey were the epicenter of the serious coronavirus cases in March and April, nearly every state posted signs on highways requiring residents of those states to quarantine for 14 days. Yet no such order was given to those coming into Texas’ border counties, even as Tamaulipas, Mexico, became a hot zone in late May and early June. In fact, to this day, even as Texas has placed severe restrictions on its own citizens, there is still no closure of the international border. Why is cross-border travel more sacred than cross-state travel? read more

Exercise is Good for the Eyes Too!

A new study offers the first experimental evidence to show exercise can slow macular degeneration

We know exercise is a good thing. It improves everything from cardiovascular disease to one’s cognitive health. Observational studies have also seen physical activity lessen age-related vision loss, but until now it hasn’t been clear how causal that relationship has been. New research from the University of Virginia (UVA) is offering the first experimental evidence to show how exercise can directly slow, or even prevent, macular degeneration. read more

Twenty Percent of Alzheimer’s Patients may be Misdiagnosed

Quadruple misfolded proteins, or QMP, refers to the presence of four separate kinds of toxic protein accumulations

Scientists are already struggling to make headway in the fight against dementia, and the discovery of a new more aggressive form of neurodegeneration that’s often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease further complicates the problem.

A new study from the University of Kentucky has described a novel form of dementia characterized by the toxic accumulation of four different proteins in the brain. The research suggests many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease may be suffering from this different, and more complex, neurodegenerative condition. read more

Killing Tumors

Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells
Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells

Lately we’ve seen an exciting string of research projects demonstrate how ultrasound can be harnessed to fight cancer, whether that be by helping drugs cross the blood-brain barrier, heating and destroying tissue in prostate cancers, or selectively killing tumor cells while leaving healthy ones unharmed. Adding to this burgeoning potential is a new study that combines ultrasound with microbubbles, which can be blasted apart like a “targeted warhead” to destroy the majority of tumor cells in breast cancer models. read more

WND Exclusive – What your doctor might not know about coronavirus

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

This is a real departure for me, as it is not my usual fight against the left or an oppressive government.

However, it’s not that far off, as it is a battle to educate the ignorant, which is what we conservatives strive to do.

And let’s face it. COVID-19 has become as big a political problem for freedom lovers as a medical issue.

This all began with my personal quest to be administered a COVID-19 serology test. I have yet to find anyone to administer the test.

As you may (or may not) know, there are two types of coronavirus tests – a virology test and a serology test. The virology test is to determine whether you currently have the SARS-CoV-2 virus. read more

Synthetic Compound may turn off Cancer Cells

A newly synthesized version of a fungal compound could be a powerful new tool against cancer
A newly synthesized version of a fungal compound could be a powerful new tool against cancer

All cells in the human body have a shelf-life, but those of the cancerous variety use some cunning trickery to outlive their expiry dates and continue spreading throughout the body. Scientists at the University of Tokyo have developed a synthetic version of a fungal compound that could help swing things back in our favor, by reactivating a missing gene that would normally drive these sinister cells to self-destruction. read more

No Podcast

I’m very sorry, but there will be no weekend podcast today.

An interesting thing happened on the way to the podcast location. As I was leaving my house, a group of neighborhood kids stopped me and asked if I could dislodge a sweat shirt from between a bicycle sprocket and the chain. Since I know them and they’re good kids, I said sure.

No problem I thought. What could possibly go wrong! read more

No – Coronavirus Hospitalizations have NOT Spiked

The left and the main stream press (one in the same) have been selling panic since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. It seems they’ll do anything to maintain control of us citizens.

But now that we have sufficient research and data to disprove the panic culture and end the lockdowns, the left has taken to once again lie about the latest so-called spike regarding Covid-19 hospitalizations.

from Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review:

Horowitz: The new panic lie: Increased coronavirus hospitalizations and cases in the southwest

The health “experts” and the media propagating viral panic porn think people like us don’t understand arithmetic. They think they can manipulate headline stories warning of increased cases of COVID-19 in order to push more lockdowns, ignoring all the ways that more cases are being discovered, while the percentage of positive tests, new hospitalizations and deaths, and the lethality of the virus are all waning significantly.

“Arizona’s COVID-19 spread is ‘alarming’ and action is needed, experts warn,” read the title of an Arizona Republic article on Wednesday. Yahoo News breathlessly warned about a “spike” in all the southwestern states. read more
