Men’s use of diabetes drug just before conception is linked to a 40% increase in birth defects, study finds Metformin use by men in the three-month period before they conceived a child was linked to a 40% higher risk of birth defects in the offspring, according to a study published Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. Metformin is a first-line drug in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The research, which was done out of Denmark, used national registries to follow over 1 million births between 1997 and 2016 and compared the risk of major birth defects in babies based on paternal exposures to diabetes medications. The study observed only children who were born to women under 35 and men under 40. Babies born to women with diabetes were excluded. The researchers considered men exposed to metformin if they filled a prescription for it in the three months before conception, which is how long it takes the fertilizing sperm to fully mature. According to the study, the frequency of birth defects in babies born to men who had a type 2 diabetes diagnosis but who were not taking metformin was 3.1% (1,594 children), but the frequency was 4.6% (788) in children with paternal exposure to metformin during the preconception period. Genital birth defects, seen only in male babies, was the only birth defect in the study that was found to be associated with a statistically significant increased risk after paternal metformin use.

Prediabetes has more than doubled among American children. Prediabetes in America’s youth is following a concerning trend: Rates among children have more than doubled in about 20 years, according to a new study. The increase was seen over almost all subpopulations of young Americans, regardless of income, ethnicity and education, said study author Junxiu Liu, assistant professor of population health science and policy at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The study, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, included children from 12 to 19 years old and looked at data in the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 1999 to 2018. Over that time, the rate of prediabetes in adolescents went from 11.6% to 28.2%, rising fairly steadily in that time frame. Prediabetes is very common in adults, but 80% of those affected don’t know they have it, according to the CDC. The condition is marked by blood sugar levels that are higher than normal but not yet at the diabetes threshold, and it increases a person’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. “If we do not intervene, the children who have prediabetes have a higher risk of developing diabetes and also have a higher risk of all cardiovascular diseases,” Liu said. The study is well done, and adds to a body of knowledge about concerning trends when it comes to diabetes and America’s youth, according to Dr. Robert Gabbay, chief science and medical officer of the American Diabetes Association.

Here’s What the Trucker Convoy Plans to Protest in California The trucker convoy that has spent the last three weeks in the Washington, D.C. area has decided to head west, to California. On Sunday night, during a livestream, one of the organizers of the “People’s Convoy”—Mike Landis—proposed that the group travel to the Golden state. Landis read off several bills—10—that he mentioned are up for a vote next week. On their website,, 10 bills are listed with the headline “10 CA Bills You Must Oppose.” Of the bills the trucker convoy plans to voice their opposition to include, AB2098, which they say would classify “anti-COVID medical opinion as ‘unprofessional conduct’ subject to discipline by the medical board.” Additionally, the group is also against SB866, which they state would lower the age of vaccine consent to 12 without parental consent or knowledge. The group is also upset with SB1464, which, according to their website, would force law enforcement groups to uphold and “enforce public health guidelines or lose their funding.” The group is also upset by AB1993, which according to the group, “requires proof of CV19 vax for all employees & independent contractors to work in CA.” SB1390, another bill under consideration in California, “prohibits any person/entity from making statements government deems untrue or misleading by any means including on internet/ads,” according to their website.

Dr. Wendell Whitman was a tireless advocate for health freedom and a pioneer in the field of natural health. In 1991, recognizing the inadequacy of formal health education outside of the traditional medical field, he founded Trinity School of Natural Health.

Trinity School of Natural Health was founded for the purpose of presenting alternative natural health education to everyone. Today, the Trinity repertoire of programs and courses has evolved into a powerful, educational process that enables students to improve their own health, enhance the good health of their families, friends and communities, and their own professional practices.

Our philosophy is that we are intrinsically holistic and should therefore continually pursue true health through the development of the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the whole person. Our vision is to become the global leader in natural health education by creating a community of individuals who are committed to sharing their knowledge of the power and purpose of holistic health. As we strive to create an exceptional student experience, we will treat each person who chooses Trinity with respect and dignity. Every decision made, every single day, will be focused solely on what is best for our students.

Hour 2

Special Guest Kimberly Overton

Ms. Overton spent over 25 years working in the healthcare industry, serving in both clinical and administrative roles. Her background is in critical care and telehealth nursing. As a dedicated registered nurse, she has been a strong advocate for autonomy and informed consent throughout her career. She found herself at a crossroads when the current medical system became tyrannical and trampled her rights as well as the rights of her patients. She has become a pioneer and a leader for the nursing community by organizing the Nurse Freedom Network (NFN) to assist nurses as well as other professionals to come out of the current system. Ms. Overton has spoken at such events as the Wellness Parenting Revolution Health & Freedom Summit, Defeat The Mandates, DC, and the Global Covid Summit with Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Pierre Kory,

As we continue to build on our mission at Nurse Freedom Network, we envision growth that will move beyond just advocacy alone; growth that will have our network of nurses and other healthcare professionals focused on wellness and prevention of disease, rather than just “managing” disease – Offense rather than defense. 

Our ultimate goal will be to provide true, patient-centered care, offering guidance that will help our clients reach an optimal level of immune health and overall wellbeing. This will be our best defense against Covid-19 or any other virus we can expect to see in the future.

The care provided will be individualized because there are no “one-size-fits-all” scenarios in healthcare.

We aim to offer both nurses and patients alike FREEDOM from the oppressive nature of our existing, broken healthcare system. Nurses will enjoy opportunities to serve their patients and communities while earning income from their privately owned concierge nursing practice, and everyone will benefit from limiting the influence of insurance & pharmaceutical companies – Patients will find freedom from the often devastating effects of polypharmacy and learn ways to improve their overall health & wellbeing.

At Nurse Freedom Network, we are also strong advocates for Early Outpatient Treatment in the fight against Covid-19, and we are working tirelessly to ensure that this option is one that will be easily accessible, affordable, and transparent to patients.

Call To Action from Stand For Health Freedom! Important Message from Stand For Health Freedom…This week two different committees in our statehouse snuck in bills that recklessly push the HPV vaccine on our children. HB0946 (SB0148) adds language to existing law that would allow health care providers to provide “treatment to a minor to prevent STDs without the knowledge or consent of the parents or legal guardians of the minor.” This language is broad enough to include the HPV vaccine, HepB vaccines, and two risky drugs approved for adolescents and adults to be taken to prevent HIV. HB2032 (SB2026) allows dentists to administer the HPV On March 30 at 2pm both bills are on the agenda to be heard before the full House Health Committee.  If the committee votes no, the bills die. We are asking Tennessee citizens to act NOW so that these two bills do not pass the House Health Committee or the Senate floor.  Send two emails, one to your House Rep and one to your Senator sharing your personal story of how these bills would affect your family members’ lives. Use our additional content on our call-to-action found in the button below to help write your email, but your personal story is what we need now to stop dangerous policy!

Spirituality can improve quality of life for heart failure patients Numerous studies have shown that spirituality can help improve quality of life for people with chronic diseases like cancer. According to a literature review published today in JACC Heart Failure, spirituality can also have a positive impact on quality of life for heart failure patients. It further concludes spirituality should be considered a potential target for palliative care interventions to improve patient-centered and clinical outcomes in these individuals. “Patients who have heart failure experience a poorer quality of life compared to their peers, with high levels of depression, anxiety and spiritual distress,” said Rachel S. Tobin, MD, resident in Internal Medicine at Duke University Hospital, and lead author of the study. “Contributing to diminished quality of life is the fact that heart failure, unlike many other , is very unpredictable and can lead to hopelessness, isolation and altered self-image.” The American College of Cardiology and other major cardiovascular societies recommend for heart failure patients. Spirituality is a core domain of palliative care, with the goal of identifying and addressing spiritual concerns and providing patients with appropriate spiritual and religious resources. However, limited research has been conducted on spirituality’s impact on patients with heart failure, and there are no known tools designed to measure it.
