CDC Finds Hundreds of Safety Signals for Pfizer, Moderna COVID Vaccines The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified hundreds of safety signals for the two most widely administered COVID-19 vaccines, according to monitoring results obtained by The Epoch Times. Bell’s palsy, blood clotting and death were among the signals flagged through analysis of adverse event reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The CDC, which runs VAERS with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), describes it as “the nation’s early warning system” for vaccine issues. The CDC’s primary analysis compared the reports made for specific events suffered after receipt of a Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to the reports lodged following vaccination with any other vaccine, or all non-COVID-19 vaccines. The type of analysis is known as proportional reporting ratio (PRR). Safety signals mean a condition may be linked to a vaccine. Signals require further analysis to confirm a possible link. The CDC analysis was conducted on adverse events reported from Dec. 14, 2020 to July 29, 2022. The Epoch Times obtained the results through a Freedom of Information Act request after the CDC refused to make the results public. VAERS is a passive reporting system that accepts reports from anybody, but most are lodged by healthcare professionals, who were told during the pandemic they were required to lodge reports if post-vaccination issues cropped up.

Question of The Day!
If one is in a hospital in critical conditional, after one’s heart has stopped for few minutes, can one’s vital signs be normal?
Latest ‘Twitter Files’ Reveal Biden Officials Colluded With Twitter on Widespread Censorship of Medical Experts Twitter engaged in widespread censorship of prominent scientists and medical experts for posting content that contradicted the official COVID-19 narrative, according to the latest “Twitter files” document dump, released Dec. 26, 2022, by investigative reporter and author David Zweig. Much of this censorship came at the behest of the Biden administration, according to Zweig, who said internal documents revealed that the Biden administration was “very angry” that Twitter didn’t engage in more censorship. Prior installments of the “Twitter files” focused on political censorship and the widespread use of secret blacklists and shadow banning, the direct involvement of agencies such as the FBI in such censorship on Twitter and Twitter’s collusion with the Pentagon and U.S. military to protect accounts perpetuating propaganda. Only a limited amount of COVID-19-related content was previously revealed as part of the ongoing release of the “Twitter files,” primarily information that Stanford University professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an outspoken critic of COVID-19 vaccines and lockdowns, was placed on a blacklist by Twitter. Meanwhile, on Jan. 1, Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted that 2023 “won’t be boring,” and responded to author Juanita Broaddrick’s “waiting … for #FauciFiles” comment with: “Later this week.”
‘No limits’ to possibilities of mRNA, says mastermind behind technology There are “no limits” to the potential of mRNA technology to treat conditions as varied as cancer, malaria and cystic fibrosis, according to one of the masterminds behind the platform. In an interview with the Telegraph, Prof Katalin Karikó – a researcher who pioneered the use of mRNA, which was used to develop the highly effective Covid-19 vaccines – insisted researchers are on track to deliver a series of therapeutic breakthroughs via the technology. This includes personalised cancer vaccines; jabs to combat infectious diseases such as malaria, flu and tuberculosis; and treatments for genetic disorders including cystic fibrosis. “I am very optimistic [that] for many many things, mRNA will be useful,” Prof Karikó said, speaking from her home in Hungary. “What is also important is that mRNA can very quickly be made, is very cheap, and it can be individual … there are therapeutic applications, as well as the vaccines,” she added. Messenger RNA (mRNA) molecules are single-stranded slithers of genetic code formed of nucleosides, which instruct the human cells to produce certain proteins. The idea is that, when you synthesise mRNA code in a lab, you can instruct the body’s defences to better fight a wide range of diseases. “There are no limits,” Prof Karikó said. “The potential of mRNA, it’s limitless.”
The 2nd Amendment Is the Only Carry Permit Needed in 25 States Alabama’s constitutional carry law took effect January 1, 2023, meaning law-abiding Americans in 25 states can now carry a gun for self-defense without paying the government a fee or getting government permission. On December 14, 2022, Breitbart News noted some 25 states had passed constitutional carry legislation and Alabama’s would take effect at the start of this year: “Those states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. (Alabama’s constitutional carry provision takes effect January 1, 2023.)” The HuffPost reported the constitutional carry landscape was nowhere near as broad twelve years ago, when Vermont and Alaska were the only constitutional carry states. But Arizona adopted constitutional carry in 2010, followed by Wyoming in 2011, and the ball kept rolling from there and on April 12, 2022, Breitbart News observed that Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed legislation making Georgia the 25th state to adopt constitutional carry.
Cravings For Drugs And Tasty Food Have Similar Brain Processes In a recent study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, researchers successfully used machine learning and identified a neuromaker or indicator that predicted how intense a food or drug craving was among people who are addicted to nicotine, cocaine, and alcohol. Over the last few decades, researchers have observed that the strong desire to do something — known as craving — is the main reason why people end up overeating or grappling with substance abuse. Neuroscientists have also delved into cue-induced cravings which occurs in response to any stimuli related to food or drugs. That way, it is possible to predict unhealthy diets or bad eating habits, drug use, relapses, and weight gain. “Although great strides have been made in the understanding of substance misuse, overeating and related phenomena, understanding of the neural basis of craving is still incomplete, and neural targets for monitoring craving and SUDs and for examining the efficacy of interventions are lacking.,” the researchers wrote in their study. “Understanding that any specific brain region is involved in craving or other outcomes does not imply that we can decode craving from the brain or that we have a sufficiently precise measurement model to allow for monitoring of individual people,” they added.
Study: Half an hour of gardening provides same health benefits as weight training, reduces risk of early death by 20% Keeping your bones and muscles healthy in your senior years is not only important for your mobility, it can also help slow down aging. Gardening is sometimes recommended as a low-intensity workout for people who require gentler activities. According to a study, working in your garden for at least 30 minutes can help you live longer and is just as good for your health as doing hundreds of push-ups, sit-ups or squats. Since the average adult can do 10 push-ups per minute, you need to do at least 300 per week. But for older adults who are not physically fit, experts recommend heavy gardening, which involves activities like digging and shoveling. The study was conducted by Japanese researchers from Tohoku University who analyzed over a dozen international studies. The researchers discovered that engaging in 30 to 60 minutes of strength training per week can help prevent early death by as much as 20 percent. This could include muscle-building activities like lifting weights and using body weight and resistance bands or simply digging and shoveling in the garden.
