Monday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Latest VAERS Data Show Reports of Blood Clotting Disorders After All Three Emergency Use Authorization Vaccines Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the number of injuries and deaths reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) following COVID vaccines revealed reports of blood clots and other related blood disorders associated with all three vaccines approved for Emergency Use Authorization in the U.S. — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J). So far, only the J&J vaccine has been paused because of blood clot concerns. VAERS is the primary mechanism for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. Reports submitted to VAERS require further investigation before a causal relationship can be confirmed. Every Friday, VAERS makes public all vaccine injury reports received through a specified date, usually about a week prior to the release date. Today’s data show that between Dec. 14, 2020 and April 8, a total of 68,347 total adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 2,602 deaths — an increase of 260 over the previous week — and 8,285 serious injuries, up 314 since last week. Of the 2,602 deaths reported as of April 8, 27% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination, 19% occurred within 24 hours and 41% occurred in people who became ill within 48 hours of being vaccinated. In the U.S., 174.9 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of April 8. This includes 79.6 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine, 90.3 million doses of Pfizer and 4.9 million doses of the J&J COVID vaccine.
San Francisco Giants’ Jake McGee, Logan Webb go on IL after getting vaccine San Francisco Giants closer Jake McGee and right-hander Logan Webb went on the injured list before Sunday’s game at Miami because they were feeling lingering effects from the COVID-19 vaccine. The Giants said they are hopeful both pitchers will be on the list for only a game or two. McGee blew a save for the first time this season when he gave up two runs in the ninth inning of Saturday’s 10-inning loss to the Marlins. He has a 2.16 ERA in nine games. Webb is 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA in three games, including two starts. The Giants recalled catcher Chadwick Tromp from the alternate training site and activated left-hander Alex Wood from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday’s game.
Questions of The Day!
Super Don and RSB: I’m looking for a trusted source or trusted brand of quercitin. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks. Btw, what happened to the link to a supplement store you used to post on your website? I can’t find anything now.
I listened to your broadcast today and have experienced increased menstrual issues associated with covid jab shedding. I have not had the jab myself, but my roommates have and I had the worst menstrual cycle I have ever experienced. I have heard several reports of this happening to other women, but cannot find research or articles about how or why this may be happening. I would love to figure out how this is happening physiologically and and if there is anything I can do to prevent this from happening with my next cycle. I have also not had any COVID testing that you talked about on the show.
Hello Scott, I need your help. I was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer in the throat about 3yrs ago. The doctor says it was caused by the Hpv virus. Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with this virus?
I’ve been having an ongoing point counterpoint discussion on the Covid Crazy situation with my cousin and I almost had her seeing the reality I see until she read an article about the virus “mutations” and proclaimed ” See, it’s real! A cell tower couldn’t do that!” I couldn’t think of a good way to explain that variants happen to all organic matter other than saying “Viruses mutate”. My question to you is how would you explain this in a way that makes the truth clear to Jane Q, public? I admire the way you paint such a clear and concise picture with your gift of eloquent articulation!
Urge Your Legislators to Ban Vaccine Passports in Your State! States are going forward to prohibit vaccine and immunity passports. Take Action to support legislation that protects the fundamental right of privacy and prohibits government and businesses from issuing or using vaccine passports. The idea of vaccine or immunity passport has hit a deep nerve among Americans. The concept of such a passport solicits massive push back because of its opportunistic infringement on fundamental rights of privacy and the right of all people to make their own health and medical decisions, including the right to accept or decline a vaccine. The concept of vaccine passports endorses outright coercion. It blatantly promotes discrimination and segregation. It encourages businesses and individuals to become arms of the police power of the government to force compliance of government policies. People are rightfully asking: “Can they really do that?” “Isn’t there a law prohibiting the government or businesses from requesting my personal medical information before I am allowed to have access to public life or transact business?” “Can a business really block me from entering a bus or a train, a store, a theater, or a restaurant, if I don’t prove with proper data that I have obtained a government recommended vaccine?” Every individual has an inalienable and fundamental right to make decisions about their own bodies and their own health care, even during an emergency. The Constitutions of many states acknowledge the rights of their citizens.
Hour 2 – Special Guest – Jeffrey Smith!
The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith’s meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk and the environment in peril. His work expertly summarizes why the safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority.
Mr. Smith’s feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide). Seen by millions world-wide, the film links genetically engineered food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive disorders, and numerous other problems that have been on the rise in the US population since genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced.
His books include: Seeds of Deception, the world’s bestseller on GMOs; and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. They expertly demonstrate why the safety assessments by the FDA and regulators worldwide are based on outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our top food safety priority.

Can Genetically Modified Microbes Undermine the Health of Humans and the Environment? Why on earth is a significant portion of human breast milk entirely indigestible by the nursing infant? Is this a design flaw? Actually, it’s part of an incredibly intelligent system that evolved over millennia. Specialized sugars in mother’s milk are specifically designed not to be digested in the stomach or small intestine. They’re not meant to feed the baby at all. Rather, they are food for bacteria living inside the child’s large intestine (Zivkovic, 2011; Musilova, 2014; De Leoz, 2015; Pacheco, 2015; Yong, 2016; Bridgman, 2017; Ayechu-Muruzabal, 2018; Elsen, 2019). The gut microbes are so important for the baby’s long-term health (Stanislawski, 2018; Vatanen, 2018), there’s a complex system in place for their installation and maintenance. This includes inoculation by healthy bacteria in the birth canal, by microbes in breast milk, and even by bacteria transferred from the mom’s skin around her nipple (Pannaraj, 2017; Science Daily, 2017; Mandavilli, 2019). But it doesn’t stop there. Research suggests that microbes from the mouth of the nursing baby convey information to the mom about the baby’s health needs (Fernandez, 2013). These are just a few of the breathtaking feats performed by the microbiome—the bacteria, viruses, yeasts, etc., that live in and on us. In fact, some experts estimate that humans have outsourced up to 90 percent of their day-to-day metabolic functions to these unseen kingdoms (Krishnan, n.d). We are not the only creatures that co-evolved with these little critters. They are everywhere in the environment. And we are just now learning how critical they are for the balance and health of all ecosystems and their inhabitants (Merten, 2020). The human microbiome is considered so crucial to human health that the National Institute of Health launched the Human Microbiome Project in 2007 with the explicit goal of analyzing the genomes of all the microbes that live in the human body. By 2020, over 200,000 genomes from the human gut microbiome alone have been cataloged and published, along with 170 million protein sequences from 4,600 bacterial species (Science Daily, 2020).
New scholarly briefing raises tough questions about gene editing in agriculture The UK government’s public consultation on deregulating gene-edited GM crops, foods and livestock animals closes tomorrow. Today the STEPS Centre, a global research and policy engagement centre funded by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), published a new briefing discussing the governance of genome editing applications in agriculture, especially in crop breeding. The briefing collates key insights arising from desk-based research and an expert dialogue which was convened during October 2020 by the policy hub of the GEAP3 network, an international consortium of scholars who are studying the domestic and international ramifications of the EU’s approach to genome editing. The briefing raises tough policy and regulatory questions for the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) in the context of their trade relationships with each other and with third countries, especially in North America and sub-Saharan Africa. The briefing identifies the major themes arising from the dialogue and documentary sources, and sets out a number of outstanding questions for policy. It presents all sides of the debate on gene editing. For example, it counters claims of the precision of the technology from some stakeholders by noting that critics point to “scientific reports in which CRISPR was found to have created unintended changes in genomes, both at the target location and in non-target areas”. On claims that gene editing will improve sustainability, the briefing says, “The doubters want to see evidence that new genome-edited crop varieties will really enable farmers to achieve a step-change in sustainable productivity, resource-use efficiency, or other desirable objectives, or do so any quicker than other methods of crop improvement.”
New analytical tool reveals massive DNA damage caused by CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing New research from Chinese scientists shows that CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing causes massive damage to the genome, much of which would have been missed by the analytical tools used so far. In a previous study, the same authors described a novel DNA sequencing procedure, which they called a “primer-extension-mediated sequencing assay” or PEM-seq. By applying this procedure, they found that DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) brought about by the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing tool could lead to unintended chromosomal translocations and large deletions. In their latest follow-up report, the researchers describe a new computer program, which enabled them to analyse the PEM-seq data to greater depth than previous programs had allowed. They used this program to analyse real sequence data from their own new experiments, as well as previous ones, following CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing in mouse and human cells. In gene editing, while the initial double-strand break made by the DNA “scissors” or gene-editing tool can be targeted to a given location, the subsequent DNA repair that makes the “edit” is performed by the cell’s own repair mechanisms and is not controllable or precise. The researchers analysed the outcomes of the gene edit – and found what they call “tremendous deleterious DSB repair byproducts of CRISPR/Cas9 editing”. The unintended outcomes or genetic errors ranged from unintended small insertions or deletions (indels) to large deletions, plasmid (gene-editing tool delivery vehicle) integrations, and chromosomal translocations. The researchers wrote, “Our findings provide an extra dimension for genome editing safety besides off-targets” – the well documented unintentional DNA damage at locations of the genome that were not targeted for editing. They added, “Caution should be exercised to avoid not only off-target damages but also deleterious DSB repair byproducts during genome editing.”
