Channelling your inner Muhammad Ali might not always be as reckless as it sounds. Zaria Gorvett explains.
There are three chickens, dancing in a line. With their bodies held up by pairs of white-gloved hands, they sway and swerve in time to “Upside Down” by Diana Ross. As their bodies move, their heads remain perfectly still; it’s as though they’re held in place by some invisible force.
No, this wasn’t a – rather fabulous – dream of mine, and yes, I am going somewhere with this.

These latest analyses were made possible thanks to the active contribution of the French associations Association Liberté Informations Santé (ALIS), Ligue nationale pour la liberté des vaccinations (LNPLV) and the Australian Association Australian Vaccination-risks Network (AVN), that we thank.
New generation sequencing have become the preferred tool for in-depth analysis in the field of biology and medical science, especially high precision ones. Thanks to these tools, we can approach in a more modern and comprehensive way a number of applications such as de novo sequencing, metagenomic and epigenomic studies, transcriptome sequencing and genome re-sequencing.
This last one (re-sequencing) is largely used in human field, both for research and diagnostic purposes and consists of NGS - Next Generation Sequencing of an entire single genome, to map the Single Nucleotide mutations (SNP), insertions and deletions of more or less long sequences that have occurred in certain locations of the genome, and variations in the number of copies of genomic portions/genes (CNV, Copy Number Variants).
This procedure helps to understand the development mechanism of some pathologies, in order to identify the directions for a future clinical treatment as in the case of cancer for example. Indeed, by this method the genetic heritage of a cancer patient can be fully decoded in both normal and cancerous tissue, thus allowing us to comprehend what exactly has changed within the genome, and, if possible, how to intervene with targeted measures.
The re-sequencing procedure requires that the DNA of an individual is mechanically broken into small dimension fragments (400-500 base pairs) and artificial DNA parts named adapters are tied to these fragments; adapters make it possible to tie the human DNA fragments to a glass surface on which the bases reading (A, C, G, T) is performed. The DNA base pairs reading takes place by means of chemical reactions, namely the incorporation of nucleotides that have been marked by fluorescent molecules. The million sequences (reads) thus obtained are then mapped on the human reference genome by specific software and all the variants are identified comparing the analyzed genome with the reference genome.
This same procedure has been performed on the human genome in Priorix® Tetra lot n. A71CB256A, genome which belongs to cell line MRC-5 (of fetal origin); the work has been carried out by a company in the USA, that routinely deals with human genome re-sequencing analysis. *
*the name of the laboratory that has performed the analysis will be included in the next formal complaint we will file at the Public Prosecutor of Rome and as well at the Italian and European regulatory bodies. The associations who are filing the analysis funded by Corvelva will be promptly kept up to date with these shocking results too. We are no denying that we feel, especially as parents, distressed by these results we are reporting - as if what we have found out so far was not enough to worry about.
During our September 18 debate, Spectrum TV host Renee Eng asked Kaiser’s, Dr. Robert Riewerts, how many vaccine injuries he had seen during his 30 years as a Pediatrician. His answer: “None, not a single one.”
Slide 1. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the AHCR.
Slide 1 shows a 2010 U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) to test the efficiency of a state-of-the-art machine counting (AI) system on data records from the Harvard Pilgrim HMO. Those government researchers found that 2.6% of vaccination resulted in injuries—a ratio one for every 39 vaccines administered. The same study found that typical clinicians see 1.3 vaccine injuries per month.

The Italian vaccine research and advocacy organization Corvelva recently released new data regarding the use of aborted fetal cell lines in vaccines. The research reports the results produced from the MRC 5 cell line analysis, particularly the one contained in GlaxoSmithKline’s tetravalent measles-mumps-rubella-chickenpox (MMRV) vaccine.
Mr. Paumgarten, it’s long past time to address the misinformation in articles like yours, The Message of Measles, which paints such an intensely biased, extremist picture of those who delay or even refuse vaccines, that by my definition, it does not qualify as journalism.
In the first place, please stop calling us “anti-vaxxers.” WE VACCINATED OUR CHILDREN. Our sons and daughters had medically-documented, serious adverse reactions to vaccines. Not redness, swelling, or a little fever, but autoimmune reactions, neurological reactions like seizure, encephalopathy, or loss of consciousness, and a host of others with long-term sequelae. Yet our children’s injuries are dismissed and ignored, while we are inexplicably —and unethically— told we must continue to vaccinate to protect others.
Why wouldn’t we protest?
When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its biannual overview of autism prevalence in early 2018, it reported that one in fifty-nine 8-year-olds (born in 2006) had an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This represented a 15% increase from the rate of one in sixty-eight described in the CDC’s 2016 and 2014 reports (for 8-year-olds born in 2004 and 2002, respectively). A federal snapshot of 3 through 17 year-olds in 2016 reported diagnosed autism in one in thirty-six children--23% more than in 2014.
Despite the two-year jump in ASD prevalence, the CDC cast a positive spin on its 2018 findings. Recognizing that white ASD prevalence had been higher, in the past, than prevalence among other race/ethnicity groups, the agency hypothesized that “white ASD prevalence had largely stabilized” and praised the 15% increased prevalence as a reflection of “the catch-up of Hispanics and blacks who had been historically underascertained.” The media readily acquiesced to this worn-out narrative, implying that latent autism cases had simply been waiting to be discovered through more effective outreach and better screening. According to PBS, “[I]f it’s the case that the rate grew only because of better diagnosis, that would mean that autism spectrum disorder isn’t becoming more common among American children. Doctors are just better at spotting it.”
Dissatisfied with the “better diagnosis” explanation, University of Colorado researcher Cynthia Nevison wrote of a 1000-fold increase in autism prevalence since the 1930s and a 25-fold increase since the 1970s in a December 2018 publication in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders. Now, Nevison and Rutgers researcher Walter Zahorodny—who regularly contributes New Jersey data to the biannual CDC reports—have published a new study critiquing the “catch-up” hypothesis. Their analysis further undermines officials’ complacent narrative by highlighting upward ASD trends among black and Hispanic children above and beyond mere “catch-up”—as well as pointing to worsening racial/ethnic disparities.
In the United States and Canada, exposure to fluoride is widespread and comes primarily through ingestion of fluoridated water supplied by community water systems. Although some U.S. residents consume drinking water that is fluoride-free, the majority of Americans served by community utilities—an estimated 74%—receive water to which industrial fluoride compounds have been added. The utilities do so in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) recommendations, which promote water fluoridation for the purpose of altering the consumer’s oral health.
The CDC acknowledges no dangers of water fluoridation other than mentioning the risk of dental fluorosis. However, as the first—and most visible—sign of fluoride toxicity, dental fluorosis should trouble the nation’s leading public health agency, particularly given that mild to severe fluorosis affected fully two-thirds of 12- to 15-year-olds as of 2012.
Even more worryingly, dozens of studies outside the U.S. have linked fluoride exposure to reduced IQ. Each time one of the studies appears, American media outlets—which represent “a powerful tool for directing [or not directing] attention to specific issues”—have remained mostly silent. For example, a rigorous Mexico-based study published in September 2017 went without mention by virtually all the major U.S. media, despite being funded by the U.S. government. For some reason, the latest study on fluoride’s IQ effects (published on August 19) has received more attention, perhaps because it appeared in one of the nation’s top pediatric journals, JAMA Pediatrics. Once again funded in part by the U.S. government, the Canada-based study indicates that moms’ exposure to fluoride during pregnancy can result in lower IQ scores in their children. These conclusions may discomfit fluoride’s most ardent proponents, but, as the study’s senior author states, “It’s important that decisions about safety…be based on evidence.”

STUDY PROMPTS CALL FOR LOWER FLUORIDE CONSUMPTION BY PREGNANT WOMEN
The world’s premier pediatric journal has published a new government-funded study confirming our worst fears, linking exposure to “optimally” fluoridated water during pregnancy to lowered IQ for the child.
You can repair a cavity, but you cannot repair a child’s brain.
The American Medical Association’s journal on pediatrics (JAMA Pediatrics) has published the second U.S. Government-funded study linking low-levels of fluoride exposure during fetal development to cognitive impairment. The observational study, entitled Association Between Maternal Fluoride Exposure During Pregnancy and IQ Scores in Offspring in Canada, was led by a team at York University in Ontario, Canada and looked at 512 mother-child pairs from six major Canadian cities. It was funded by the Canadian government and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Science.
Too Far Out: Studies Touting Health Benefits From Microdosing Psychedelics Are ‘Patchy & Anecdotal,’ Scientists Warn
Author: John Anderer
LONDON — The notion that mind-altering drugs, more specifically psychedelics such as LSD or magic mushrooms, have a positive impact on creativity, mood, and productivity has been around for centuries. A bit more recently the practice of “microdosing” psychedelics, or only taking very small, repeated doses in order to maintain a somewhat level head while also experiencing the drug’s benefits, has picked up steam in certain circles. However, very little scientific research has actually been performed to back up these anecdotal claims, and experts warn that recent studies touting these drugs’ mental health benefits are too unreliable.

There were three high-profile shootings across the country in one week: The shooting in Gilroy, Calif., on July 28, and then the back-to-back shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, this past weekend.
That's no surprise, say scientists who study mass shootings. Research shows that these incidents usually occur in clusters and tend to be contagious. Intensive media coverage seems to drive the contagion, the researchers say.
