Compulsory jabs: Pressure grows on anti-vaxxers A growing number of countries and territories around the world are forcing people, often in specific sectors, to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Mandatory in Tajikistan, Vatican Tajikistan and the Vatican are among the rare countries imposing vaccinations on all adults. In ex-Soviet Tajikistan the official news agency has published a government decree obliging all over 18s to be vaccinated, without giving further details. In the Vatican, the world’s smallest state, vaccinations were made obligatory for residents and workers in February, with those refusing liable to be sacked. Italy Several countries or territories have imposed vaccinations on certain sections of the population. Italian doctors and health workers in the public and private sector must get vaccinated or face being banned from working directly with patients. A group of 300 Italian health workers have gone to court to try to get the obligation overturned and a hearing is scheduled on July 14. Britain On June 16 the British government announced all care home staff in England will need to be fully vaccinated. If approved by parliament, the new legislation means anyone working in a care home must have two doses of a vaccine from October unless they have a medical exemption. The rules will apply to all workers employed directly by the care home, as well as to agency workers and volunteers. Russia President Vladimir Putin is against mandatory vaccinations nationwide. The mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin ordered mandatory jabs for residents of the Russian capital working in the service industry on June 16. Some 60 percent of all service industry workers in Moscow—just over two million people—were ordered to be fully vaccinated by August 15. Since then other localities have taken similar measures, including badly-hit Saint Petersburg.
Injured by a COVID Vaccine? Want Financial Compensation? Too Bad, Says Injury Compensation Law Firm Altom Maglio says his law firm, Maglio Christopher & Toale, has litigated more vaccine-related injury claims in the past five years than any other law firm in the U.S. But the 22-lawyer firm has a disappointing message for would-be clients who have suffered a serious injury from a COVID vaccine. “Our law firm has concluded that there is nothing our attorneys can do to significantly assist you,” the firm states on its website. That’s because the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) — also known as “vaccine court” — does not currently handle COVID vaccine injury claims, though the law firm says it is leading a national effort to get COVID vaccines covered under the NVICP. “If and when COVID vaccine injuries are covered, we can begin the process of reviewing your claim to determine if you’re eligible for the VICP,” the firm states. Maglio told Reuters his Florida-based firm has been contacted by at least a few hundred people about suspected COVID vaccine-related injuries, including blood clots and heart inflammation. According to an op-ed by Jenna Greene in Reuters, it’s not that Maglio’s firm doesn’t want to help. Representing people who’ve had serious adverse reactions to vaccines for tetanus, measles, hepatitis, influenza and a dozen other vaccines is its “bread and butter.”
WHO recommends COVID tests in schools The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 tests should be carried out in schools—even when no cases have been detected—to avoid the “harmful” effects of remote learning. Screenings in schools had previously only been recommended if a cluster of coronavirus cases has been identified, but the WHO now believes PCR or rapid antigen tests should be given even in the absence of symptoms among students and staff. “The summer months offer a valuable window of opportunity for governments to put in place the right set of measures that will help keep infection rates down and avoid resorting to school closures,” Hans Kluge, WHO’s regional director for Europe, said in a statement issued together with UNICEF and UNESCO. He added that closing schools “as we have seen, have such a harmful effect on the education, social and mental well-being of our children and youth.” “We can’t allow the pandemic to rob children of their education and development,” said Kluge, who has repeatedly called for countries in the WHO’s European Region to address dropout rates and health effects linked to distance learning.
Comment of The Day!
RSB and super D,
I just want tell you how much I appreciate guys! I discovered you back in 2013, I listened off and on for a year or so. I came to realize that all 4 of my children had some kind of damage from vaccines. In high school my oldest son was told by a guidance counselor that he would amount to nothing! (they wanted me to put him on drugs for ADHD in elementary school, I refused) He struggled for about 5 years after high school. One day he decided to go to college, not knowing exactly what he wanted to do, he went to a local community college, he worked hard found he was interested in science, a guidance counselor there was very helpful and guided him in the biology direction. He spent 2 years there, graduated with a associate degree. He went on to a University and graduated with a degree in molecular biology! He then took a couple of years decided to go back to get his PHD. He went into a program at the University of Kentucky, a 7 year program. He graduated in a little less than 6 years in May 2020. His Degree is in pharmaceutical science. But the real story came back to New England to stay with us while he found a job.
Because of listening to your show and all your guest for so long, also doing a lot of research myself I was able to talk to my son at that level. We had some great conversations and he was very willing to listen to what I have learned. Sometimes I would talk about something he wasn’t so sure he agreed with me, but he would go do some more research and discuss it and come to agreement on many things!
I could not have done that without you guys to push me into doing a bit of research on my own. Thank you so much for all you do!
Continue the great work!
LinkedIn Deletes Account of mRNA Vaccine Pioneer Who Questioned Risks of COVID-19 Shots Dr. Robert Malone, who identifies himself as the inventor of mRNA vaccines, said that LinkedIn recently deleted his account after he made comments about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and questioned whether they’re appropriate to give to certain groups of people. “My business pays for linked in premium. I have been deleted,” Malone wrote on Twitter this week. “Purchased a service from linked in to promote my company. This is very different from the YouTube or Twitter terms. This arbitrary and capricious action has damaged our business, and we deserve to be compensated.” It appears his personal account was removed earlier this week without warning or explanation from LinkedIn, a subsidiary of Microsoft, said his wife, Jill Malone. “He was given no notice, no warnings,” she told Just the News. “He has a 10-15 year old account—has never even had a warning. 6,000 followers.” Malone explained on Wednesday that the “historic record of what I have done, stated, figured out (and when) etc. over time is a key part of establishing my credibility and track record as a professional.” But despite this, the account “has been erased completely and arbitrarily without warning or explanation,” he added. In a subsequent tweet, Malone produced an email from a LinkedIn representative, who said that his account violated the firm’s user agreement because he posted “misleading or inaccurate information” about vaccines and COVID-19.
Facebook Deletes Greenmedinfo.com’s Page with Half a Million Followers 12 years, many thousands of posts, and half a million fans later, Facebook recently deleted GreenMedInfo.com’s professional page for “violating community standards on health misinformation that could cause physical harm.” Following a wave of censorship that began in 2019 with Google’s “digital book burning” and removal of natural health websites from their search results, and Mailchimp’s sudden deplatforming of us in 2019, growing rapidly in 2020, and reaching even more alarming proportions in the window of COVID-19 with the publication of digital hit lists intended to intimidate and spread hate and fear, Facebook has now unpublished the Greenmedinfo professional page, followed by 533,630 fans, providing the following message as an explanation: “Your Page has been unpublished for going against the Facebook Community Standards on health misinformation that could cause physical harm.” Established in 2009, the GreenMedInfo page grew rapidly over the years to over half a million followers, who used Facebook’s social media functionality to connect and share information that resonated with them, such as our mission: “GreenMedInfo is dedicated to providing evidence-based natural medical information. Through both open access, paid memberships and high-quality educational products, GreenMedInfo provides physicians, healthcare practitioners, clinicians, researchers and consumers a resource to determine the therapeutic value of vitamins, minerals, herbs and foods. We deeply believe that education equals empowerment and that with education, people have the power to change their lives and lives of others.”
Cellphone radiation is harmful, but few want to believe it: researcher For more than a decade, Joel Moskowitz, a researcher in the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley and director of Berkeley’s Center for Family and Community Health, has been on a quest to prove that radiation from cellphones is unsafe. But, he said, most people don’t want to hear it. “People are addicted to their smartphones,” said Moskowitz. “We use them for everything now, and, in many ways, we need them to function in our daily lives. I think the idea that they’re potentially harming our health is too much for some people.” Since cellphones first came onto the market in 1984, they have gone from clunky devices with bad reception to today’s sleek, multifunction smartphones. And although cellphones are now used by nearly all American adults, considerable research suggests that long-term use poses health risks from the radiation they emit, said Moskowitz. “Cellphones, cell towers and other wireless devices are regulated by most governments,” said Moskowitz. “Our government, however, stopped funding research on the health effects of radiofrequency radiation in the 1990s.” Since then, he said, research has shown significant adverse biologic and health effects—including brain cancer—associated with the use of cellphones and other wireless devices. And now, he said, with the fifth generation of cellular technology, known as 5G, there is an even bigger reason for concern.

CBD treats for dogs popular during Fourth of July holiday weekend The holiday weekend proved extremely busy for one Toledo business. Toledo Hemp Center was handing out samples of CBD treats for pets that get anxious. For the last five years, Toledo Hemp Center has been providing area families relief for their pets with anxiety during fireworks. The very first year, it handed out 47 CBD dog treats. This year that number grew to triple digits. Owner Kevin Spitler says treats were flying off the shelves and the demand was much more than the staff imagined. “This year we originally planned on handing out about 400 CBD dog treats. We actually handed out 960 dog treats. We had run out and we made a lot more samples for people to come and pick up,” he said. He says they hand out these samples because he saw first-hand the impact it had on his dog. “My own experience and how CBD helped her with fireworks showed me that I could help a lot more dogs, inspired by my own,” Spitler said.
Cannabinoid pathway linked to psychiatric disorders Northwestern Medicine scientists discovered an unexpected connection between a synapse protein that has been implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders and the endocannabinoid pathway, according to a study published in Biological Psychiatry. These findings suggest a role for the endocannabinoid system in conditions including bipolar disorder, according to Peter Penzes, Ph.D., the Ruth and Evelyn Dunbar Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, professor of Physiology and Pharmacology, and senior author of the study. “The endocannabinoid system could be disrupted in patients with bipolar disease, or it could be the opposite: medical marijuana could have therapeutic potential for these patients,” said Penzes, who is also director of the Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment. “These are the questions that need to be answered.” Cannabis has an effect on humans because it mimics endocannabinoids, chemicals occurring naturally in the brain. While the specific function of endocannabinoids is still not fully understood, the legalization of marijuana in many U.S. states has prompted more investigation into its biological pathways, Penzes said.
Prenatal exposure to THC, CBD affects offspring’s responsiveness to Prozac Scientists at Indiana University have found that significant amounts of the two main components of cannabis, THC and CBD, enter the embryonic brain of mice in utero and impair the mice’s ability as adults to respond to fluoxetine, a drug commonly used to treat anxiety and depression and known by the brand name Prozac. The study suggests that when the developing brain is exposed to THC or CBD, normal interactions between endocannabinoid and serotonin signaling may be diminished as they become adults. “Hemp-derived CBD is a legal substance in the U.S., and we are in a time of increasing state-level legalization of cannabis. Therefore, use of cannabis components have increased across most levels of society, including among pregnant women,” said Hui-Chen Lu, author of the study, director of the Linda and Jack Gill Center and a professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in the IU Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences. “The study marks the beginning of an effort to understand the effects of THC and CBD on the endogenous cannabinoid system in the developing brain and body.” The study was published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research and will be a part of the upcoming 2021 Gill Symposium, which will focus exclusively on the topic of cannabis.
9 Science-Backed Benefits Of CBD Oil Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. When applied topically or consumed through smoke inhalation or edible consumption, CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system, which sends signals between your cells to help regulate your movement, mood, homeostasis and immune system. CBD is often extracted from the cannabis sativa plant in oil form and mixed with an inert carrier oil like hemp seed oil for consumption. In recent years, CBD oil has skyrocketed in popularity thanks to its purported calming effects. It can now be found in a range of products from simple oil tinctures to CBD-infused potato chips. CBD research is growing, too. Here are nine ways studies suggest CBD oil could benefit your health. CBD’s ability to calm is perhaps its most popular effect and the reason its use is so widespread. A 2017 study in the Brazilian Journal of Psychiatry tested the anxiety levels of 57 men in a simulated public speaking test. Some received a placebo while others received either 150 milligrams, 300 milligrams or 600 milligrams of CBD before their speeches. Those who received 300 milligrams of CBD experienced significantly reduced anxiety during the test compared to those who received the placebo. Interestingly, participants who received either 150 or 600 milligrams of CBD experienced more anxiety during the test than the 300 milligrams group. Meanwhile, at least one study in mice revealed CBD had effects similar to the antidepressant imipramine. Human trials are needed, though, to confirm whether CBD can induce this same antidepressant reaction in our bodies.
