Buffalo Bills Safety Hamlin in Critical Condition After Cardiac Arrest, Game Postponed Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was in critical condition after suffering a cardiac arrest during Monday’s National Football League (NFL) game against Cincinnati. The 24-year-old briefly got to his feet after making a tackle on the Bengals’ Tee Higgins in the first quarter but then fell on his back. The game in Cincinnati was halted as medical staff quickly attended to him while players from both teams took a knee. Hamlin was given CPR before leaving the field in an ambulance. The NFL later announced the game had been postponed. “Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following a hit in our game versus the Bengals,” the Bills said in a statement. “His heartbeat was restored on the field and he was transferred to the UC Medical Center for further testing and treatment. He is currently sedated and listed in critical condition.” As Hamlin was taken to the hospital at 9:25 p.m. local time, players from both teams went to their locker rooms, some with tears in their eyes.”Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.”Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available.” Hamlin’s family came down from the stands to be with him as he was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Local media said fans from both teams were standing outside the hospital waiting for news, some holding candles.
Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest and will not make a full recovery It was announced in the hospital parking lot that Hamlin is not expected to make a full recovery. Hamlin was vaccinated. The Buffalo Bills is a 100% vaccinated team. I also got a Twitter DM from someone who knows this for a fact who asked that I not disclose his identity. This is a shame since we know know, thanks to my readers, that there is no death benefit to the COVID vaccines. This was called “unprecedented” on ESPN. Hamlin has been intubated and currently listed in critical condition. All the announcers said they’d never seen it in the NFL. This was a joint decision by both the NFL and the players to stop the game. This is unprecedented. One of my nurse friends wrote, “How often has a young healthy football player that didn’t take that hard of a hit had a heart attack or stroke.” A tackle really made his heart stop? How? After decades of hard hits in the NFL, this has never happened. CPR was administered for 9 minutes. Normal is 3 to 5 minutes. After 10 minutes you’re basically dead. McCullough said that we will not know for 24 hours whether he will bounce back. He could make a full recovery.
Half think COVID vaccine is deadly Nearly a third of the nation believes the COVID-19 vaccine has killed somebody they know, highlighting the safety concerns the public still has about the shot. As the first family renewed their call for the country to get vaccinated, 28% of likely voters told Rasmussen Reports that they “personally know” somebody they think died from the side effects of the shot. What’s more, 49% said that vaccine side effects have caused “unexplained deaths,” one of the factors in the trending new hashtag, “#DiedSuddenly,” based on the just-released documentary. Died Suddenly has been criticized as promoting “debunked” anti-vaccine conspiracy theories but has been seen by some 15 million people. More Democrats, by a 33%-26% margin, believe the shot has been lethal. Still, 71% said they have received the vaccine against the coronavirus, led by Democrats, 85% to just 63% of Republicans and 64% of independents.The White House, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and countless others have been making the case that the vaccine is safe as the nation faces a third possible season of the virus.

FDA May Regulate CBD Within Months FDA regulators are planning to review CBD product regulations in the coming months. In recent years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken a stance against selling CBD-based products because it needed more scientific evidence about the safety of such products. However, the agency is now in the process of developing a regulatory assessment for hemp-derived products such as CBD. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Janet Woodcock, the FDA’s Principal Deputy Commissioner and leader of the agency’s cannabis regulation efforts, expressed concern about the safety of CBD and whether current regulatory pathways for food and dietary supplements are suitable for this substance. However, the agency is interested in determining whether it is safe to consume CBD on a daily basis for extended periods of time or during pregnancy. Woodcock mentioned concerns about potential effects on fertility in the future, but, at the same time, his comment signalled that the agency is working to establish regulatory frameworks for the legal sale of appropriate cannabis and cannabis-derived products.
Boosted Worse Off Than Vaccinated in Many States, Data Show People in the United States who have received COVID-19 boosters in many states are more likely than those who have gotten just a primary series to get infected, receive hospital care, and die, according to an Epoch Times investigation. Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths among the boosted have been increasing since the booster shots were first introduced in 2021. The boosters were promoted as bolstering protection against adverse outcomes. But, compared to the vaccinated who have not received any boosters, boosted people are testing positive, being hospitalized, and dying at higher levels in many states, according to the review, which went over data in the first two quarters of 2022. In California, for instance, the boosted population made up 72 percent of the COVID-19 cases among vaccinated people in June. In Vermont that month, the boosted population made up 90 percent of the COVID-19 deaths among the vaccinated. The number of boosted people has continued to rise since the extra shots were first cleared in 2021. But in some of the states, one or more metrics among the boosted exceed their population. In Wisconsin, boosted people made up 43 percent of the cases, 43 percent of the hospitalizations, and 46 percent of the deaths in June—well above the boosted population, which was 35 percent of the state as of late August.
Type 2 diabetes: Study predicts ‘startling’ rise of the condition among America’s young people A new modeling study is raising alarm bells after it determined that the number of young people in the United States with diabetes will increase by nearly 700% over the next 40 years. The study, titled “Projections of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Burden in the U.S. Population Aged <20 Years Through 2060: The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study,” was published in the journal Diabetes Care on Dec. 29, 2022. The authors of the study predicted there might be 220,000 people under the age of 20 with Type 2 diabetes in the year 2060 — an increase of about 675% from the number of young people with type 2 diabetes in 2017. “This new research should serve as a wake-up call for all of us. It’s vital that we focus our efforts to ensure all Americans, especially our young people, are the healthiest they can be,” said CDC Acting Principal Deputy Director Debra Houry, MD, MPH, in a statement released on Dec. 29. Houry added, “This study further highlights the importance of continuing efforts to prevent and manage chronic diseases, not only for our current population but also for generations to come.”
IBD Treatment with No Medication? A healthy lifestyle may prevent up to 60% of cases Leading a healthy lifestyle may be the simple secret to treating inflammatory bowel disease. Scientists reveal that lifestyle changes prevented up to 60 percent of IBD cases in a large international study. So far, research has shown an association between IBD risk with a variety of lifestyle factors, but there is still no clear link between maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a reduction in disease risk. IBD affects close to three million adults in the United States and 1.3 million in Europe, and there’s no sign of diagnoses slowing down. The condition has increasingly become more of a health concern in recent years. With that in mind, a team of researchers pulled data from the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS), NHSII, and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS) to determine how a healthy lifestyle may prevent it all together. The Nurses Health Study included 121,700 female nurses (ages 30–55) from 11 U.S. states in 1976. The NHSII study included 116,429 female nurses (ages 25–42) from 15 states in 1989, and the HPFS included 51,529 male doctors (ages 40–75) from around the country in 1986.
NYT Attacks ‘Heightism,’ Calls to Mate with Short People to Save Earth Being short is “better” for the planet and future, according to a recent New York Times piece that describes short people as “inherent conservationists” who save resources by consuming less and are “best suited for long-term survival.” The essay’s author, who boasts of her “tiny” children who “eat like gerbils” and thus help “save money and food,” also calls for mating with a short partner as “an effective way to help the planet” because it can decrease the “needs of subsequent generations.” The Sunday essay, titled “There Has Never Been a Better Time to Be Short” and penned by author Mara Altman, begins by describing increased height as a “widely held fantasy of superiority that long ago should have been retired.” “It made sense to fawn over height when it facilitated survival,” she writes. “Ages ago, when the necessity of defending oneself cropped up daily, if not hourly, tall people could more easily protect their families and bring home some woolly rhino flank.” “Today, those who have the stamina to sit in an office chair all day bring home the plastic-wrapped meats,” she adds.
