Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
The vaccine: A religious exemption for the whole world Yesterday, I quoted extensively from AnnaMaria Cardinalli’s stunning Crisis article that concluded there was the murder of an infant, in order to obtain the cell line used in COVID vaccine testing. I put out a call to medical professionals to weigh in on her analysis. Here is the basic ramification: THERE IS A RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION FOR THE WHOLE WORLD. For all people of faith. Every faith. “According to my religious belief, the murder of an undeniably live infant for any reason is unconscionable and evil, and I refuse the vaccine.” Here is a Force against which no government, no establishment, no secret society, no wealth can stand. I fully understand all sorts of professionals will spout language that purports to show “the infant was not alive, the lab followed all the legal guidelines, this is an old argument that has been debunked…” But this is not just an old argument. This is the equivalent of an opening statement in a murder trial. Nothing less. If religious leaders will read AnnaMaria Cardinalli’s article, they will see how important her charge is.
Should you mix and match COVID-19 vaccines? Experts weigh in Can someone get their initial COVID-19 vaccine from one manufacturer and then get a booster from another? The question has intrigued medical professionals since before the first shot went into an arm—and it’s far more than an academic issue. Allowing people to mix and match COVID-19 shots could significantly improve vaccine distribution and may even offer some medical benefits. This afternoon an advisory committee to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will review data from a recent National Institutes of Health study that seeks to answer the question. The preliminary results of this very small study hint that the answer may be yes. If the FDA eventually endorses mixing brands, the decision could help nationwide vaccination efforts, says Pedro Piedra, professor of molecular virology, microbiology, and pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. “At any time, a pharmaceutical company can have a manufacturing issue, whether that’s a contamination problem or a shortage of a reagent, so it’s helpful to have options,” he says. Doctors and pharmacists would also benefit, says Robert M. Jacobson, medical director of the primary care immunization program at the Mayo Clinic. “Practitioners could just pick one brand to carry and know they could give that to anyone in the middle of their vaccine series, rather than have to turn some patients away,” he says. This would reduce waste, because more people could be inoculated from each open vial, he notes.

How we treat breast cancer exposes a huge systematic issue in American health care Ownership implies that you take personal responsibility. Getting a test is not taking personal responsibility… just the opposite, the purpose of the test is to throw the responsibility on someone else, the doctor, the therapist, the surgeon. Lets remember what Dr. Bernard Jensen the pioneer 20th century Cleansing Guru teaches us: “There are many therapeutic approaches to restoring or maintaining health today. However, the presence of toxic settlements in the body prevents any of these methods of treatment from being completely successful. If a treatment does not work toward complete detoxification, the rejuvenation of tissue will not take place as it should. The complete rejuvenation process involves the replacement of old under active tissue with new, clean, efficiently working tissue. This is what brings a degenerative condition to a state of recession and remission. Many kinds of processes can be used to bring this about, and this is what the healer must be alert for. The natural immune system can only be built up in a clean body, a body with a minimal amount of accumulated toxic material.”
Effects of sulforaphane on breast cancer cells There is scientific evidence that sulforaphane (SFN), a food component derived from cruciferous vegetables, has been shown to be effective in preventing breast cancer. The aim of the study is to analyze evidence in the literature regarding the effects of SFN on breast cancer cells. This is an integrative literature review conducted in accordance with the “PRISMA” recommendations, carried out by searching for original articles, with a limit of 10 years of publication, in English and Portuguese, indexed in the PubMed database, Science Direct and Cochrane. 1985 articles were found in the preliminary search and 13 were included, after the process of selection and removal of duplicate and ineligible articles. It was found that 69.2% (n = 9) of the studies demonstrated that the SFN reduced viability, 53.9% (n = 7) verified induction of apoptosis, 7.7% (n = 1) evaluated the expression of hTERT and found its inhibition after treatment. The expression of the pro-apoptotic gene BAX and the anti-apoptotic gene BCL-2 were evaluated in 38.46% (n = 5) of the studies where it was possible to verify that 23% (n = 3) reported BAX induction and 38, 46% (n = 5) reduced the level of BCL-2. It is concluded that the results reinforce the benefits of SFN as a compound with preventive effects in breast cancer. In spite of this, the need to conduct more research is highlighted, which allows further clarification on the proposed theme, as well as the question of dosage and improvement of clinical results.
Can eating nuts have health-protective effects for breast cancer survivors? In a study published in the International Journal of Cancer of breast cancer survivors, nut consumption was linked with lower risks of breast cancer recurrence or death.Among 3,449 breast cancer survivors from the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study who completed a dietary assessment 5 years after diagnosis, there were 374 deaths during a median follow-up of 8.27 years after the dietary assessment. Among 3,274 survivors without a previous recurrence at the time of their dietary assessment, 209 developed breast cancer–specific events, including recurrence, metastasis, or breast cancer mortality.
Aging breast tissue could set the stage for invasive breast cancer The American Cancer Society estimates that 284,200 women will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021, and 43,600 will die of the disease—the second highest cause of cancer death in women. A woman’s risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer increases with age, but while scientists have long studied cellular changes that take place in the body over time, a new study led by researchers at the University of Notre Dame examines how the extracellular matrix (ECM)—an underlying network of molecules and proteins that provide the structure for tissue growth—can trigger invasive cancer-related genes. “This is the first time we’ve been able to show direct evidence that the aging ECM itself is changing the phenotype of normal epithelial cells,” said Pinar Zorlutuna, the Sheehan Family Collegiate Professor of Engineering at Notre Dame and principal investigator of the study, published in Advanced Science. “Clinical data shows that aging is a big risk factor for breast cancer, and we wanted to investigate why that is. Cellular aging has been explored, but what we didn’t know was what effect aging had on the extracellular matrix.”
Study examines resilience, depression, and quality of life in patients with breast cancer Resilience is the ability of an individual to recover or maintain relatively stable psychological and physical functioning when confronted with stressful life events and adversities. In a study published in Psycho-Oncology that included 193 patients with breast cancer who were receiving chemotherapy before undergoing surgery, investigators assessed resilience through questionnaires. Those with resilience were less likely to experience depressive symptoms during chemotherapy, and in turn, experience better health-related quality of life after chemotherapy. The results suggest that patients with breast cancer who have low resilience may be at risk for developing depression during chemotherapy.

A NYC restaurant manager goes renegade in the face of new vaccination-proof rules Not all Big Apple restaurants were happy as a citywide vaccine mandate took effect on Monday — and some are all but thumbing their noses at the controversial clampdown. The so-called “Key to NYC” program — which requires diners to show proof they’ve been vaccinated from COVID — has gotten support from high-profile restaurateurs like Danny Meyer of the Gramercy Tavern and Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, as well as the owners of Sylvia’s in Harlem. But some fret that the new rules won’t be enforceable, and that they will turn off tourists as local eateries scramble to recover from a year and a half of lockdowns. Others say they won’t even try to enforce the new rule beginning Sept. 13, when city inspections at restaurants, indoor entertainment venues and gyms are slated to begin. Shortly after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the new rules on Aug. 3, a sign appeared in the front window of Pasticceria Rocco, a pastry shop and diner in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn: “We do not discriminate against any customer based on sex, gender, race, creed, age, vaccinated or unvaccinated. All customers who wish to patronize are welcome.”
NYC to Mandate Vaccines, Scrap Testing Option for Workforce New York City will mandate Covid-19 vaccination for all city workers, eliminating a testing option. Starting Wednesday, all employees who get their first shot at a city-run site will receive an extra $500 in their paycheck. The benefit will end on Oct. 29, the deadline for employees to submit proof of at least one dose, Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. Employees not vaccinated by then will be placed on unpaid leave, the mayor said. The city will immediately begin “impact bargaining” with affected unions, according to the statement. “The voluntary phase was very long,” de Blasio said Wednesday on MSNBC. “Now we’re saying we need you to do this.” The mandate will immediately apply to about 160,500 workers, of which 71% have already received at least one vaccine dose, according to the statement. New York City police and firefighters are included in the requirement, while certain Department of Corrections employees will have until Dec. 1 to comply, “as the City works diligently to address the ongoing staffing situation at Rikers Island,” according to the statement.
In-N-Out Burger clashes with San Francisco over vaccine mandate: ‘We refuse to become the vaccination police’ Popular California burger chain In-N-Out is refusing to comply with San Francisco’s mandate that restaurants check vaccine cards before allowing customers to dine indoors — a move that resulted in a temporary shutdown of the city’s only location. “We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Arnie Wensinger, the company’s chief legal and business officer, said in a statement shared with The Washington Post. “It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.” The clash comes as the country remains divided about pandemic policies, with vaccination mandates in the public and private sectors prompting unrest and firings. San Francisco, like New York City, requires customers to be vaccinated before they can dine inside, and restaurants are responsible for checking cards at the door.
Questions of The Day!
Hi Robert and Don,
My mom was hospitalized this week with severe pain due to kidney stones. While she was in the hospital they did a cardiac cath because she also complained about chest pain. My mom said the doctor was scheduling open heart surgery for next week. She’s also diabetic and they were giving her foods with sugar, like cranberry juice. She ended up checking herself out yesterday.
I am reaching out to you to see if you know of any good cardiologist here in Sunrise, FL area. I went to Richard’s store yesterday and spoke with Elena about what was going on. We were holding off on buying supplements until I knew more. Any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Been taking a tablespoon of copper 2× a day and my chest pain from reflux and reflux in general, seems better. Can one nebulize the copper also and what would be the benefits from this?
G’day RSB & SuperD
It’s Frank from the prison colony of Australia. Wondering if y’all could give me your thoughts on a health matter. My 13 y.o son has had (for at least the past 6 months) a chronic case of phlegm spitting LOL. It seems that every few minutes he’s agitating his throat in order to force phlegm to the “surface” for launching. Sometimes he gets a “lump in the throat sensation” & very infrequently he gets heartburn. He has no nasal congestion. No stomach pain. No headaches. No facial pain. No known allergies. He’s not on any medication. He’s as skinny as a twig with a big appetite. Most days he passes stools at least once (sometimes twice) a day. Overall he’s doing ok, except for the constant spitting. Whatever this health issue is it’s annoying not just for him but for the rest of us who have to listen to him trying to force the phlegm up from his throat to his mouth.
