Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Ozempic Settles the Obesity Debate: It’s Biology Over Willpower Ozempic and similar drugs are transforming the world’s understanding of obesity. It isn’t so much about willpower: It’s about biology. The success of the powerful new class of diabetes and weight-loss drugs shows how important chemistry is to determining a person’s weight. The brain is the body’s chief chemist, regulating appetite and making it difficult for many people to shed pounds and keep them off. The brain determines how much fat it wants people to carry, according to years of research bolstered by the new drugs. The amount is like a setting on a dial, or what many researchers call a “set point” or “defended fat mass.” The brain maintains the dial setting or set point by regulating how much a person eats. Ozempic, its sister drug Wegovy and another, Mounjaro, lower the dial setting, or set point, in effect by acting on the brain to reduce hunger and make a person feel full sooner, some obesity researchers say. The new set point lasts as long as a patient is on the drug, they say. Patients who ate a lot before they started taking one of the drugs feel less hungry and fill up more quickly—sometimes after one slice of pizza when they once ate the whole pie. “This is not about willpower or personal choice,” said Dr. Florencia Halperin, an endocrinologist and chief medical officer of Form, a virtual medical weight-loss clinic. “This is about your brain driving behaviors.”
Special Guest Dr. Shannon Kroner
Dr. Shannon Kroner has a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a master’s in Special Education, with a focus in Educational Therapy. Her doctoral dissertation, entitled, Childhood Vaccinations: The Development of an Educational Manual, provides a psychological viewpoint of the ways in which parents make decisions regarding vaccinations for their children.
When Dr. Kroner first began working with special needs families in 2001 as a Floortime therapist and behaviorist, she discovered many parents sharing similar stories about their children’s disabilities having occurred shortly after receiving a vaccine. Then, in 2009, while pregnant, Dr. Kroner personally suffered a vaccine injury after receiving a preservative-free flu shot. Believing it was safer than others because it was preservative-free, she got the vaccine, but suffered a serious reaction that landed her in the emergency room. Upon hearing so many personal vaccine injury stories and then experiencing her own adverse reaction, Dr. Kroner decided it was time to seriously research vaccines and encourage others to do the same.
As an advocate for vaccine choice, Dr. Kroner founded the organization Freedom of Religion – United Solutions (FOR-US) in 2019, following vaccine mandate laws that removed both religious and medical exemptions in California. Serving as its Executive Director, she has united faith leaders of many faiths to protect the religious freedom of vaccine choice and has helped thousands of individuals obtain religious vaccine exemptions.
As a public speaker, advocate, author, wife, and mother, Dr. Kroner understands the importance of protecting vaccine choice and educating today’s children as they pave the way towards a brighter tomorrow.

Rutgers Set to Disenroll Students on August 15th if Not Compliant with COVID Vaccine Mandates On March 25, 2021, Rutgers University became the first university in the nation to announce it would require students to take COVID vaccines for fall 2021 enrollment, retracting its January 8, 2021 announcement that “…with our stance of human liberties and our history of protecting that, the vaccine is not mandatory.” What happened within a few short months that made Rutgers ultimately decide to hell with student civil liberties? Rutgers claimed and still does to this day that it has a “commitment to health and safety for all members of its community” even though on July 30, 2021, Rochelle Walensky issued a press release claiming that COVID vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission. As if that press release is some figment of our imagination, in January 2022, Rutgers announced a booster mandate with a compliance date set for January 31st, leaving students with few options but to comply to stay enrolled. As of today, Rutgers remains one of less than 100 universities out of 2,679 four-year colleges and universities that refuse to let go of COVID vaccine mandates, and according to anonymous sources, Rutgers is planning to disenroll non-compliant students beginning on August 15, 2023. Perhaps this dogmatic adherence to COVID vaccine mandates has been a long time coming. In 2020 and 2021, Rutgers had some of the strictest pandemic lockdown restrictions, even when other colleges were finding ways to resume normalcy. Students quickly fell in line and anyone who questioned the lockdown or mask mandates was denounced as an anti-science MAGA supporter and a grandma killer. A former Rutgers student described her experience as being stuck in a maelstrom of fear, divisive partisanship, and social pressure leading her to self-censor rather than jeopardize relationships or lose standing in her beloved community.
Antibiotics Exert Sustained Effect on Gut Microbiome A metagenomics study of the effects of azithromycin and amoxicillin on the gut microbiome found sustained alteration in microbial communities and increases in putative resistance genes, and suggests a spill-over effect on the microbiome of untreated housemates. “That some of the most abundant bacteria in the gut are impacted in response to these antibiotics suggest that the effects of these antibiotics on gut microbiome health may be substantial and long-lasting,” remarked study lead author Jessica Chopyk, PhD, Department of Pathology, University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA, and colleagues. The investigators recruited 56 participants, comprising 24 housemate pairs and 8 individuals from different, separate households. Participants received either amoxicillin or azithromycin, or placebo (vitamin C) once daily for either 3 or 7 days. Fecal samples were collected on day 0, 3, 7, week 8, and at 6 months.A total of 282 samples were sequenced. The bacterial genera most abundant in all participants included Bacteriodes, Bifidobacterium, Ruminococcus, Eubacterium, Prevotella, Faecalibacterium, and Blautia. The azithromyin-treated participants demonstrated significantly reduced amounts of Bifidobacteria compared to those receiving placbo; and these were significantly lower at day 7 and week 8 than in those receiving amoxicillin. Those receiving amoxicillin demonstrated a significantly higher relative abundance of Bacterioides after 3 days of treatment than the non-household controls.
Special Guest Cyrus Nooriala
Cywest was originally founded in 1997 after its founder, Cyrus Nooriala, was frustrated with an industry that was apathetic to its customer’s needs. This was in large part due to an overly regulated industry which picks winners and losers based on who lobbies the government with the most dollars. Cyrus Nooriala shares insights as to how companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and
many others formed, were subsidized and eventually became extensions of the government and globalists to control and manipulate the people they are supposed to serve. As a company, Cywest has always represented an alternative for individuals and businesses to utilize technology and remain competitive without having to become subservient to the technology companies that collude with government. As a citizen you are by association a forced customer of the Big Tech Companies, and as a result your Constitutional and inalienable rights given by God are being eroded away.
