Is Push to Vaccinate Young Kids a Ploy by Pharma to Get COVID Shot on Pediatric Immunization Schedule? On May 23, Pfizer-BioNTech announced preliminary results from their Phase 2/3 trial evaluating a three-dose vaccine schedule for children 6 months to under 5 years of age would be submitted to the FDA for emergency use authorization (EUA). Many in mainstream media are hailing this development as important to children’s health, writing, “many parents of these very young children have been really anxious to get their kids vaccinated” and “Parents hoping to get their youngest children vaccinated against COVID-19 got some encouraging news Monday.” Yet, despite the continued push by mainstream media to encourage parents to vaccinate the very young, the Vaccine Monitor Survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) found only 18% of parents with children under age 5 are planning to get their child vaccinated immediately. Parents expressing concern for children’s safety KFF reports that a larger number — 38% — are planning to wait to see the side effects the vaccine may have in younger children before making a decision and 27% have indicated they will definitely not have their child injected. Importantly, the survey also found that “Just over half of parents of children in this age range say they do not have enough information about the vaccines’ safety and effectiveness for children under age 5.”
Doctor Deception: AMA Takes Aim Against Physician Disinformation The American Medical Association (AMA) this week enacted a new policy designed to combat public health disinformation at the annual meeting of its House of Delegates. The policy focuses on healthcare professionals who spread misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines and promote unproven treatments for the disease. But it has wider implications for other public health issues, as well. Some components of the policy could be brought to bear against the licensing and board certification of physicians who participate in this kind of disinformation. According to an AMA statement, the new policy “provides a comprehensive strategy aimed at stopping the spread of disinformation and protecting the health of the public, including actions that can be taken by the AMA, social medial companies, publishers, state licensing bodies, credentialing boards, state and specialty health professional societies, and by those who accredit continuing education.” In a news release, AMA President Gerald E. Harmon, MD, stated, “Physicians are a trusted source of information for patients and the public alike, but the spread of disinformation by a few has implications for the entire profession and causes harm. Physicians have an ethical and professional responsibility to share truthful information, correct misleading and inaccurate information, and direct people to reliable sources of health information.”
WHO to Convene Emergency Meeting on Monkeypox Amid Spread The World Health Organization will hold an emergency meeting to assess whether the current spread of monkeypox constitutes a public health emergency of international concern, or PHEIC. A special committee will meet next week to advise on the spread in non-endemic countries, Hans Kluge, regional director of the WHO for Europe, said at a media briefing Wednesday. A PHEIC is the WHO’s highest alert level, and such a declaration can be used to encourage nations to cooperate on countermeasures, while letting the agency recommend steps such as travel advisories. Monkeypox, which has been afflicting developing countries for years, has spread across Europe and the US in recent weeks. The virus belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus, which includes the variola virus, the cause of smallpox, but it’s less contagious and symptoms are milder. A large proportion of cases have been among men who have sex with men, and many have occurred within sexual networks, though anyone can contract the disease. “The magnitude of the outbreak poses a real risk,” Kluge said. “The longer the virus circulates, the more it will extend its reach and the stronger the disease’s foothold will get in non-endemic countries.” Europe remains the epicenter of the escalating outbreak, with 25 countries reporting more than 1,500 cases, or 85% of the global total, Kluge said. Some cases progress to “nasty complications” such as secondary infections, and a small number of patients are hospitalized, the WHO said.
WHO Considering Renaming Monkeypox Over Concerns of Label’s Stigma The World Health Organization is considering renaming the monkeypox virus after a group of scientists from Africa and elsewhere said there was an urgent need to replace the “discriminatory” and “stigmatizing” label, reports Bloomberg. “In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” the scientists’ group said in a position paper online. “If SARS-CoV-2, for instance, was not named the Wuhan virus … then the question is, Why do we have a virus or a clade named after a specific geographical location in Africa, and then by extension that extends to the people in those areas?” Christian Happi, director of the African Center of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases at Redeemer’s University in Ede, Nigeri, told Stat News.”If we have to go by geographical location, then we should name all viruses by geographic location.” Happi also expressed anger at the way the outbreak is being portrayed in the mainstream media. Some news outlets have included photos of African children with monkeypox lesions.
Question of The Day!
Do you know of any effective homeopathic remedies to reduce prostate enlargement? India claims to have such remedies, but they ignore email orders. If there is such a homeopathic medicine, could you recommend an online retailer? Does Sovereign Silver have any ability to reduce prostate size? BPH is a massive problem for most men, sooner or later. But neither mainstream medicine nor alternative medicine seem to have an effective solution.
I just heard your info on Otto’s Unbreakable. I have been a homeopath, classically trained, for 37 years. While I am classical, I am not rigid, but I do know about provings! I was very concerned with your giving out the names of the venom remedies without proper warnings to lay people who don’t have a clue how to use them. In fact homeopaths around the country are trying to figure out what potencies to try and how to use them for the Vaxxed and longterm Covid. How can someone with no knowledge know how to use them??? Provings can be very serious especially when we are talking about venoms. They can clot and/or decoagulate the blood with improper use.
How are YOU using them? Turning them loose with people who only know haw to take Advil or something of the like can have serious implications. I have not heard your instructions, if any, on your show yet, but I hope you will reconsider what you encourage people to buy. What are your instructions and why? I am very interested to know.

Growth hormone improves liver health in people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease Growth hormone improves liver health in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) by reducing liver fat and inflammation, according to a new study presented Tuesday, June 14 at ENDO 2022, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga. “Two risk factors for NAFLD, obesity and diabetes, are becoming more prevalent,” said lead researcher Laura Dichtel, M.D., M.H.S., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Mass. “We currently do not have any FDA-approved treatments for NAFLD, and weight loss is the only effective treatment. Understanding how growth hormone improves liver fat and inflammation in people with NAFLD could lead to the development of novel targeted treatments.” NAFLD is present in 25% of people worldwide, and up to 80% of those with obesity in the United States. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the progressive form of NAFLD. NASH is characterized by liver inflammation and liver cell damage and is often accompanied by liver fibrosis. NASH with severe fibrosis can lead to cirrhosis, or liver failure. NASH-cirrhosis is one of the leading causes of liver transplant in the United States.
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Record-High 50% of Americans Rate U.S. Moral Values as ‘Poor’ A record-high 50% of Americans rate the overall state of moral values in the U.S. as “poor,” and another 37% say it is “only fair.” Just 1% think the state of moral values is “excellent” and 12% “good.” Although negative views of the nation’s moral values have been the norm throughout Gallup’s 20-year trend, the current poor rating is the highest on record by one percentage point. These findings, from Gallup’s May 2-22 Values and Beliefs poll, are generally in line with perceptions since 2017 except for a slight improvement in views in 2020 when Donald Trump was running for reelection. On average since 2002, 43% of U.S. adults have rated moral values in the U.S. as poor, 38% as fair and 18% as excellent or good. Republicans’ increasingly negative assessment of the state of moral values is largely responsible for the record-high overall poor rating. At 72%, Republicans’ poor rating of moral values is at its highest point since the inception of the trend and up sharply since Trump left office. At the same time, 36% of Democrats say the state of moral values is poor, while a 48% plurality rate it as only fair and 15% as excellent or good. Independents’ view of the current state of moral values is relatively stable and closer to Democrats’ than Republicans’ rating, with 44% saying it is poor, 40% only fair and 16% excellent or good.
Trans kids’ treatment can start younger, new guidelines say A leading transgender health association has lowered its recommended minimum age for starting gender transition treatment, including sex hormones and surgeries. The World Professional Association for Transgender Health said hormones could be started at age 14, two years earlier than the group’s previous advice, and some surgeries done at age 15 or 17, a year or so earlier than previous guidance. The group acknowledged potential risks but said it is unethical and harmful to withhold early treatment. The association provided The Associated Press with an advance copy of its update ahead of publication in a medical journal, expected later this year. The international group promotes evidence-based standards of care and includes more than 3,000 doctors, social scientists and others involved in transgender health issues. The update is based on expert opinion and a review of scientific evidence on the benefits and harms of transgender medical treatment in teens whose gender identity doesn’t match the sex they were assigned at birth, the group said. Such evidence is limited but has grown in the last decade, the group said, with studies suggesting the treatments can improve psychological well-being and reduce suicidal behavior.
US abortions rise: 1 in 5 pregnancies terminated in 2020 he number and rate of U.S. abortions increased from 2017 to 2020 after a long decline, according to figures released Wednesday. The report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, counted more than 930,000 abortions in the U.S. in 2020. That’s up from about 862,000 abortions in 2017, when national abortion figures reached their lowest point since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized the procedure nationwide. About one in five pregnancies ended in abortion in 2020, according to the report, which comes as the Supreme Court appears ready to overturn that decision. The number of women obtaining abortions illustrates a need and “underscores just how devastating a Supreme Court decision is going to be for access to an absolutely vital service,” said Sara Rosenbaum, a George Washington University health law and policy professor. Medication abortions, the two-drug combination sometimes called the “abortion pill,” accounted for 54% of U.S. abortions in 2020, the first time they made up more than half of abortions, Guttmacher said.
Detoxification: Top Protocols with Amazing Benefits Your body is bombarded every day with toxins that break down your immune system, damage your cells, and increase your risk for diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and early death. These toxic compounds come from the environment, from the products in your home, and from what you eat and drink. While some of the sources of these deadly substances are well known, others are labeled “harmless,” even “beneficial” to your health and well-being. The first step to full body detoxification is to know where the toxins originate so you can stop your exposure. During cold and flu season, if you’re like most of us, you “sterilize” your house after an outbreak. You wash all your linens, increase nutrient consumption to help you ease symptoms and shorten sickness, and isolate the person who is sick to avoid spreading their germs to others in your family. Removing toxins from your life is a similar process. You need to “scrub” your diet and lifestyle, “boost” your system, and “isolate” the sources so they are no longer a threat. By following these simple protocols, you can help your body eliminate toxins while preventing future toxic buildup. Not only will you feel better; you’ll actually reduce your risk of disease! Here are some of the benefits of detoxification: It is important to take out the “cellular trash” on a daily basis. This is what the cells of our bodies are designed to do as we sleep, move, sweat, drink clean water, and consume high water content foods (i.e., veggies), among other things. The cells of our body automatically cleanse and detoxify by eliminating accumulated waste products. If the body is unable to eliminate toxins fast enough, compared to the amount of toxic waste coming in, cells start malfunctioning and the disease process begins.
10 Ways to Jumpstart Autophagy for Cancer Protection Autophagy is a normal biological process. In cancer, autophagy has a dual role: It can both inhibit or promote cancer. Autophagy has a powerful role in the prevention of cancer by stopping cancerous growths. However, it can be stimulated by stressors such as nutrient deprivation and certain strategies. Click here to learn why autophagy is a double-edged sword for cancer. The ketogenic diet is powerful for stimulating autophagy. This is one of the mechanisms that makes the ketogenic diet effective for fighting cancer. The ketogenic diet is a high healthy fat, low carbohydrate, and low to moderate protein nutrition plan. This pattern of eating lowers blood sugar and insulin levels. The body adapts by burning body fat and dietary fat, rather than sugar, for fuel. By lowering insulin, the ketogenic diet induces autophagy. The ketogenic also diet puts cancer cells at an energetic disadvantage by depriving them of their preferred fuel source, glucose. Ketones are by-products of fatty acids that are a more efficient source of cellular energy. They produce significantly more energy per molecule than glucose with much less metabolic waste. It is like putting clean fuel into your body rather than the dirty fuel produced by burning glucose. While the ketogenic diet is powerful for stimulating autophagy, the best nutrition plan to combat cancer would combine a plant-based diet with the ketogenic diet. A plant-based diet can be potent to fight cancer because numerous plant compounds have been shown to act on different pathways in the body to downregulate cancer growth.
