Viruses Are Coming for Your Holiday Season, Health Officials Warn Thanksgiving spurred on more respiratory infections in an already busy virus season. The coming holidays could be worse, public-health officials say. The flu continues to surge at the highest level seen in years and Covid-19 infection levels have recently increased around the U.S. heading into the winter holidays, wastewater and federal hospitalization data show. The rising viruses increase the risks for vulnerable groups including older Americans following an unusually early season for respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, which most often impacts small children and has filled beds in pediatric hospitals. RSV infection levels are showing signs of cooling off but remain elevated, as flu and Covid-19 infections spread. “If you managed to avoid it at Thanksgiving, you may not at Christmas,” said Dr. Catherine Troisi, an infectious diseases epidemiologist with UTHealth Houston School of Public Health. The cumulative flu hospitalization rate in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s surveillance network is the highest it has been for this time of year in more than a decade, according to the CDC. Low vaccination rates and fewer recent exposures compared with prior seasons have likely left a larger pool of susceptible people this year, doctors said.
NYC Health Officials Urge New Yorkers to Wear Masks Amid Rise in Tridemic Cases In the face of high levels of COVID-19, flu, and RSV cases, New York City’s health officials have issued an advisory, strongly urging New Yorkers to use masks. NYC Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan says that the rise in respiratory viruses is the reason as to why the city’s health office is recommending, not only the use of masks, but also vaccinations and boosters. “While respiratory viruses are spreading at high levels in NYC, there are common-sense ways to protect yourself and your loved ones this holiday season: vaccination, boosters, wearing a mask indoors or among crowds and staying home if you don’t feel well,” Vasan said in a tweet. The city’s advisory recommends that everyone should wear a mask at all times while indoors, as well as in crowded outdoor settings. City officials also urge those who are sick and unable to separate from others to wear masks. Additionally, those who are COVID-19 positive should wear masks. “Wear a high-quality mask, such as a KN95 or KF94 or an N95 respirator, for additional protection,” city health officials say.
Not so sweet: Artificial sweetener aspartame linked to anxiety Aspartame is used as an ingredient in over 5,000 diet foods and beverages. Now, new research from Florida State University reports the artificial sweetener may be linked to a greater anxiety risk, an animal study concludes. Mice exposed to aspartame exhibited anxious behavior. Notably, the anxious effects of aspartame on tested rodents extended up to two generations from the original males exposed to the sweetener. “What this study is showing is we need to look back at the environmental factors, because what we see today is not only what’s happening today, but what happened two generations ago and maybe even longer,” says study co-author Pradeep Bhide, the Jim and Betty Ann Rodgers Eminent Scholar Chair of Developmental Neuroscience in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, in a university release. This work was conducted, in part, thanks to previous research at the Bhide Lab focusing on the transgenerational effects of nicotine on mice. Those earlier projects indicated temporary, or epigenetic, changes in mice sperm cells. In contrast to genetic changes (mutations), epigenetic changes are reversible and don’t change the DNA sequence. Still, they can change how a body reads DNA sequences.
Baby whose parents refused blood from vaccinated donors undergoes lifesaving heart surgery A six-month-old baby whose parents refused to allow him to undergo lifesaving heart surgery using blood from people vaccinated against Covid-19 has been operated on in a New Zealand hospital. Earlier this week, a judge ruled that the boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, would remain under the court’s guardianship until he had recovered from the surgery. The court also appointed two doctors as its agents to oversee issues around the operation and the administration of blood, according to court documents. The baby has a congenital heart defect and needed urgent open heart surgery to survive – but the operation was delayed by his parents’ insistence that only blood from donors not vaccinated against Covid-19 be used. Speaking to CNN affiliate Radio New Zealand (RNZ) on Friday, the parents’ lawyer, Sue Grey, confirmed they had texted her to say the surgery was complete and that their son was doing well. Police were called in by the hospital on Thursday after the baby’s parents prevented doctors from taking blood from him for testing, or performing a chest X-ray or an anesthetic assessment, RNZ reported.
Hospital condemns girl to death over COVID jab: Mother of adopted 14-year-old pleads for help after Duke hospital refused to perform life-saving kidney transplant because she is not vaccinated A North Carolina family is appealing for help after their adopted 14-year-old daughter was refused a kidney transplant by Duke University hospital because she was not vaccinated against COVID-19. Yulia Hicks was taken in by Lee and Chrissy Hicks in January 2021 from Ukraine. They knew she had a rare genetic kidney condition, Senior Loken Syndrome, which would eventually mean she required a transplant. On November 11, however, they were told she was not eligible for Duke’s waiting list because she was not vaccinated against COVID. ‘There’s no sympathy whatsoever from any of them,’ said Chrissy Hicks. ‘It’s just strong arming us: give her the vaccine, and you’ll get the transplant.’ She said they had contacted a lawyer, but ‘can’t have her life hanging in the balance with litigation’ – and were seeking an alternative medical center. The Hickses said Yulia had been infected previously, yet the hospital said that was not sufficient, and CDC guidelines require vaccinations for transplant patients. ‘They said the CDC recommendation had been updated at the end of October, and they had to go by the recommendation, and if she didn’t get the vaccine she wouldn’t be getting a transplant at Duke,’ said Chrissy Hicks, speaking to Tucker Carlson on Friday night.
Processed food is the real “pandemic,” and the government couldn’t care less about it The government and media made much ado about nothing concerning the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) as they together destroyed society to keep people “safe” from a “virus” that has never even been proven to exist. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people die every single year from eating processed food and nobody in a position of power says a word. New research published in the journal JAMA Network says that between 280,000 and 325,000 people, depending on which datasets are used, die annually from obesity caused by a “really dangerous ‘virus’ that’s impacting everyone.” That “virus,” the study explains, is “highly addictive high-carb and sugary processed foods that are making everyone fat, lazy, and riddled with diseases.” Another paper published by the National Math Foundation cites World Health Organization (WHO) data warning that obesity is on the rise, perhaps most notably among children. “The obesity epidemic has extended from the general populace to our nation’s children,” that research explains. “Administrators, health officials, and politicians have already joined forces to combat what has been termed a ‘crisis proportion’ of childhood obesity.” “Research has resulted in numerous community-based interventions, but progress is slow and resources limited. In combination, obesity and math illiteracy each pose a threat to the future of the United States and its principal resource – children.” (Related: Remember in 2017 when quack “scientists” declared that global warming, not processed food, causes diabetes?)
The Mysterious Case of Zika-Microcephaly’s Disappearance In 2015, a viral pandemic from Northeast Brazil exploded into the news, supported by breathless public health alarms that Zika — a flavivirus acknowledged for decades as harmless — was now suddenly responsible for congenital microcephaly (babies with small heads; diminished intellect). WHO-aligned experts within Latin America recommended that women forgo childbirth indefinitely — possibly until a Zika vaccine’s fabrication (still unrealized). Massive panic predictably ensued. Not a single case of human medical illness had previously been attributed to Zika — a near twin of the dengue virus (which itself brings a million South American “bone-break fever” cases, yearly) – – and never with any associated congenital microcephaly. Brazil’s medical research establishment treated the Zika- (and later microcephaly-) claims with initial skepticism — but were twice overwhelmed by vested parties’ self-serving media leaks – the latter of which spiraled into full-fledged national panic. The upheavals from Zika-microcephaly included outsized public health overreactions: travel advisories; Brazilian soldiers on the streets; indelible fear; emergency injunctions proposed for abortion; the eternal absence of more than 100,000 “ghosted” Brazilian children (babies not conceived during the panic).

How to “Bio-Hack” the Cigarette or Vaping Habit and End Nicotine Addiction
Nicotine is the third most addicting drug in the world, right behind cocaine and heroin. In the long term, nicotine is a depressant, but in the short term, it’s a stimulant, and it saves the smoker from what I termed the “cigarette hangover.”
Everybody knows that smoking is bad for you, but do they know why? If they did, they might understand why they’re so addicted to it, and they might be able to “bio-hack” their way out of it, and naturally.
Cigarettes, among other chemicals, contain ammonia, bleach, bug killer, and weed killer pesticides. These are the ultimate culprits of the “cigarette hangover” that comes when the nicotine wears off after just 30 to 45 minutes.
Every smoker knows that feeling when they “need” a cigarette. It’s that creeping in of nervousness, anxiousness, and a headache that will all just keep getting worse, until that new nicotine hits the heart and brain. But wait, there’s a hack for all that – and it does NOT involve using nicotine, caffeine, or sugar.
Scientific research from the Baylor College of Medicine reveals the NUMBER ONE reason smokers relapse and return to smoking after trying to quit is LOW dopamine levels. There’s a tropical herbal supplement, called mucuna pruriens*, that boosts dopamine production naturally. The L-dopa contained in the seed of mucuna is a precursor of dopamine and improves levels of dopamine in the brain.
By hacking dopamine levels without an addictive substance, the body is able to build back its normal dopamine production and the nicotine cravings are extinguished. Once the smoker has detoxified his/her body of the ammonia, bleach, and pesticides, there is no more cigarette hangover on the way, so the natural dopamine “hack” can be reduced, and the addiction cycle is broken.
The physical nicotine addiction is broken in 3 to 4 days, but the low dopamine levels must be addressed for at least two weeks, if not longer, otherwise, most smokers who quit will return to their cancer sticks as soon as stress rears its ugly head. Once they smoke just ONE cigarette, they are dragged back into the habit. That’s why the nicotine patch and nicotine gums fail 96% of people who try them, they just keep people addicted.
This “relapse” can be avoided by utilizing the natural dopamine hack that combines herbal adaptogens (superfoods) and key supplements, namely vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, which helps balance the central nervous system.
This “bio-hack” is ideal for people trying to quit smoking or vaping, and it’s part of a proprietary formula called Krave Kicker, the world’s first truly natural nicotine alternative that kicks nicotine cravings for up to 4 hours, with zero nicotine, zero caffeine, zero sugar, and nothing artificial.
VAXXING YOUR BRAIN: Google trying to “immunize” users against misinformation with new “Info Interventions” propaganda scheme To better control the thoughts and actions of modern humans, tech giant Google has announced the launch of a new brainwashing propaganda scheme called “Info Interventions.” The project aims to “teach” Google users which information to avoid as “false” while training them to spot and accept only information that Google deems as “true.” If used as intended, Google users will be “immunized” against online “misinformation.” This “pre-bunking” plot is Google’s latest dystopian attempt to squelch online free speech – though instead of simply banning or censoring content, Google is now attempting to rewire the brains of humanity to automatically filter our “disinformation.” According to the company, users will be presented with “accuracy prompts” as they search and browse. These prompts are designed to train users into clicking only the links that Google wants them to click. As stated by Google, the scheme is all about “reminding individuals to think about accuracy when they might be about to engage with false information,” adding that these Info Interventions “can boost users’ pre-existing accuracy goals.” Google says it is drawing from behavioral science research to develop the most effective brainwashing tools it can, calling it a “gift to the world”.
