Departing CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Warns of Politicized Science Dr. Rochelle Walensky has a warning for the American people: Be on guard against misinformation and the politicization of science. In one of her final interviews as head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Walensky told The Wall Street Journal that she wants Americans to make health decisions based on “their own risk assessment and their own personal risks, but not through politics,” she said. Political partisanship has, in many ways, defined Walensky’s tenure as CDC director. People on the right were more likely to push back against the agency’s pandemic guidance on quarantines, distancing and masking, compared with those on the left, while Democrats were more likely to be vaccinated than Republicans, according to polls. Political partisanship was a stronger national predictor of Covid-19 vaccination than any other demographic factor, according to KFF, formerly the Kaiser Family Foundation. Walensky said that public health shouldn’t fall along partisan lines. “Some of our biggest divides were based on jurisdictions and how they voted,” Walensky said of Covid-19 vaccination rates.
Special Guest Dr. Alina Lessenich
Dr. Lessenich is a veterinarian with a PhD in neuroscience on the subject of Parkinson’s disease. After 15 years of focusing on the care of sport horses, she closed her equine practice at the onset of the corona crisis in order to dedicate herself exclusively to supporting people suffering from long COVID or post-vaccine syndrome. Another important focus of hers is the development of a “new medicine“, a new understanding of health and illness, the basis of which are the right nutrition, micronutrients, the detoxification of environmental toxins, mental and emotional health, and a healthy lifestyle. With the “Vaccine Detox Summit“, she is now providing people around the world with the latest knowledge about the COVID vaccination, its adverse events and the most sustainable treatment methods currently available.

U.S. House Floats Bill to Defund WHO, WEF and ‘Misinformation’ Programs The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations has proposed cutting government funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) entirely, as part of its budget proposal for fiscal year 2024. This proposal was included in the committee’s Fiscal Year 2024 State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Bill, released June 22. According to the committee’s press release, the proposals are geared toward “cutting spending for low-priority activities and programs.” The bill also includes prohibitions on funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the EcoHealth Alliance and gain-of-function research; termination of U.S. government involvement with the World Economic Forum (WEF); and a ban on government “misinformation” and “disinformation” programs. It’s uncertain if any of the proposed cuts will be adopted, as the bill faces a long path through Congress. Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), one of Congress’ most vocally opposed to U.S. involvement in the WHO, told The Defender the proposals by the appropriations committee are a positive sign — but more action is needed. “I had written a letter to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to move forward with cutting the WHO’s funding in appropriations and in his role as speaker,” Norman said. “I’m glad to see it did come out of the appropriations committee, but we’ve got to follow it through to make sure it passes.” In his May 10 letter to McCarthy, Norman said the first step “to avoid the unacceptable consequences of what is afoot with the World Health Organization” is “to terminate further U.S. funding of the WHO, a roughly $700 million annual contribution.”
Produce prescription programs for patients with diabetes could save billions in health care costs, study shows An apple a day not only keeps the doctor away, it also could save the United States at least $40 billion in medical bills, report Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy researchers in a new study published June 30 in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Their modeled implementation of a nationwide produce prescription program—which would provide free or discounted fruits and vegetables to eligible Americans living with diabetes —projected extensive reductions in national rates of cardiovascular disease and associated health care costs. Public health agencies and non-profit organizations have been experimenting with variations of produce prescription programs for almost a decade, with accelerating evidence for their effectiveness. Typically, a patient with a diet-related health condition can visit a participating health care provider to receive vouchers or electronic cards that can be redeemed for free or discounted fruits and vegetables delivered to the patient’s home or picked up from a grocery store, farmer’s market, or health care food “farmacy.” While produce prescriptions have definable benefits for health—for example, improving blood sugar control, body weight and blood pressure levels—long-term national effects of this promising strategy, if fully implemented, had not previously been investigated. “Of the strategies that can improve nutrition and diet-related health outcomes for Americans, evidence continues to build that produce prescriptions are a terrific option,” says senior author Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and Jean Mayer Professor at the Friedman School, who is also launching a new cross-university initiative that will be the first of its kind to focus on advancing “Food is Medicine.” “These innovative treatments are exciting because they can not only improve health and reduce health care spending, but also reduce disparities by reaching those patients who are most in need.”
Sorry but Serious Harms from the Vaccine are Not Rare Drug regulators and public health agencies have saturated the airways with claims that serious harms following covid vaccination are “rare.” But there has been very little scrutiny of that claim by the media, and I could not find an instance where international agencies actually quantified what they meant by the term “rare” or provided a scientific source. The best evidence so far has been a study published in one of vaccinology’s most prestigious journals, where independent researchers reanalysed the original trial data for the mRNA vaccines. The authors, Fraiman et al, found that serious adverse events (SAEs) – i.e. adverse events that require hospitalisation – were elevated in the vaccine arm by an alarming rate – 1 additional SAE for every 556 people vaccinated with Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine. According to a scale used by drug regulators, SAEs occurring at a rate of 1 in 556 is categorised as “uncommon,” but far more common than what the public has been told. Therefore, I asked eight drug regulators and public health agencies to answer a simple question: what is the official calculated rate of SAEs believed to be caused by Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine, and what is the evidence? The agencies were the FDA, TGA, MHRA, HC, PEI, CDC, ECDC and EMA. The outcome was startling.
Is it time for America to adopt a new national anthem? Only in America is the most influential songwriter a slave-owning trial lawyer with exactly one hit. Worse, Francis Scott Key stole the melody from a British pub hymn that had been lingering in the 19th-century equivalent of the public domain. The lyrics, all about him watching the Yankees and the Redcoats bomb the shit out of each other for a whole day in Baltimore, could have carried the 19th-century equivalent of a parental advisory, too. It took a century and an act of Congress for the Star-Spangled Banner to become the American standard, which would seem proof of how catchy it isn’t. Without school drills or Whitney Houston or the constant drumbeat of patriotism, likely, the Banner reverts to scribbles on a page decades ago. It got Peter Nicks thinking: “If you could imagine an anthem for today, what would that be and how would you do it?” That’s the hand-on-heart question at the center of Anthem, a Hulu documentary from Nicks on the journey to make a fight song that reflects the country’s tortured soul. Nicks, the pensive director behind a trilogy of docs exploring institutions in his Oakland home town, enlists the help of two expert ears: the jazz pianist Kris Bowers, who composed the scores for Bridgerton, Green Book and other screen gems; and DJ Dahi, the hip-hop producer behind Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean and more chart toppers. In fact, Ryan Coogler, an executive producer on this film, was reminded of the sheer glut of pop anthems that speak to the American experience while premiering this 97-minute thought exercise at the Tribeca film festival. “It’s a trip how many songs just New York has,” the Black Panther director tells the Guardian over a Zoom call with his collaborators earlier this week. “We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, and they had these like 360-degree photo booths. And they weren’t just playing the same song; they were playing the same 30-second loop of Empire State of Mind.”
