Medicine Has Been Fully Militarized: Clayton J. Baker, MD, presents a critical view of the medical industry, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. He compares the industry’s approach to a militaristic operation with top-down commands and strict adherence to protocols, overshadowing individual medical ethics and practices. Baker discusses the suppression of dissenting medical opinions and the influence of pharmaceutical companies, likening these practices to those of the military-industrial complex. He raises concerns about civil liberties and the integrity of medical practice, suggesting a deep interconnection between public health policies and military strategies.
Israel becomes first country to approve sale of lab-cultured meat: Israel has approved the sale of lab-cultured beef, a pioneering step in the food-tech industry. Aleph Farms, based in Rehovot, will be selling steak grown from cow cells, a significant advancement in environmentally friendly and animal welfare-conscious meat production. This move follows rigorous safety assessments by the Israeli Health Ministry and a declaration of kashrut from the country’s chief rabbinate. Aleph Farms, which has raised substantial funding and includes Leonardo DiCaprio as an advisory board member, plans to expand sales to restaurants soon and is working towards global market compliance.
Americans trust nurses the most out of 23 major professions, new poll finds: ‘At the forefront’: A Gallup poll reveals that nurses are the most trusted profession in the U.S., holding this position for 22 consecutive years. With 78% of Americans acknowledging their high ethical standards, nurses rank above other healthcare professionals like doctors and pharmacists. The poll, conducted among 800 U.S. adults, indicates a slight decline in trust since 2019 but still shows significant public confidence in the nursing profession. Experts attribute this trust to nurses’ close patient interactions and crucial roles in healthcare.
Vitamin D deficiency linked to increased dementia risk, supplements may help: A study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examines the link between vitamin D levels and dementia, including Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. Analyzing data from 269,229 UK Biobank participants, researchers found that vitamin D deficiency correlates with a 19-25% increased risk of all three dementia types. The study underscores the potential role of vitamin D supplementation in reducing dementia risk, especially in individuals with vitamin D deficiency. However, caution is advised due to the study’s observational nature, and further research, including randomized controlled trials, is needed for definitive conclusions.

‘A Very Dangerous Medical Experiment’: CDC Expands Vaccine Schedules for Kids, Pregnant Women and Most Adults The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its 2024 vaccine schedules, now recommending a total of 76 doses of 18 different vaccines for children aged 0-18. This expansion has sparked significant criticism from experts who question the safety and efficacy of the vaccines, given the lack of comprehensive testing. The new schedule includes vaccines for COVID-19, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), flu, and pneumococcal disease. Critics, including Dr. Brian Hooker and Dr. Mary Kelly Sutton, argue that the CDC functions more as a vaccine promoter rather than a public health protector, highlighting the influence of pharmaceutical companies. Concerns are also raised about the financial incentives for doctors to vaccinate and the repercussions for writing exemptions. The article also discusses the changes in the vaccine schedule for pregnant women and adults, emphasizing the increased number of doses and the inclusion of new vaccines like RSV and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines.
Colorado considers allowing sales of raw milk in latest “food freedom” legislation Colorado is contemplating legislation that would permit the sale of raw milk directly from farms, farmers markets, and roadside stands, though not in grocery stores. This move is part of the broader “food freedom” bill, aiming to empower consumers to make their own food choices. Currently, Colorado has stringent regulations on raw milk due to public health concerns, with the only legal way to purchase it being through herd-share arrangements. The proposed bill, receiving a 7-0 vote in its first Capitol hearing, includes safety measures like labeling and temperature control during transport. The bill mirrors laws in states like Wyoming and Montana and is a response to raw milk enthusiasts’ requests. Proponents argue for the health benefits of raw milk, while critics and health officials warn of the risks of food-borne illnesses. The bill also faces concerns about the state health department’s regulatory authority and the potential financial impact on farmers.
‘The world is changing too fast for us’: organic farmers on urgency of French protests Pierre Bretagne woke at 4am to feed the cows on his organic farm near the coastal town of Pornic in western France, then did something he had never dared to before. He made a cardboard protest banner about the nightmare of French bureaucracy and went to cheer on a go-slow convoy of tractors warning that French farming and the rural way of life was facing collapse. Effigies of dead farmers dangled from nooses on tractor trailers as the convoy drove into the centre of the Brittany city of Rennes, beeping horns and waving banners. “Quality has a price,” read one. “We’re fed up and exasperated,” says Bretagne, 38. “I love my job – I farm organically because it’s what I believe in and it’s the right thing ethically and in terms of health. In nine years of farming, I’ve never been on a protest; I’d rather be with my animals. But things are getting so difficult – we need decent prices that reflect not just the quality of our produce but the love we put into this job and into the countryside. This is a passion, a vocation, but we don’t get the recognition for it.”
Is your boss an alien? 37% believe extraterrestrials are walking among us! One in three Americans thinks aliens are living among us in disguise — and many suspect their boss of being from outer space! Overall, a new poll of 1,000 adults finds 37 percent say they believe aliens are already here on Earth. From sightings of “10-foot tall aliens” in Brazil to the recently refuted “extraterrestrial corpses” found in Peru or the tourist board of Kentucky beaming messages to space to invite aliens to visit, the interest and debate around alien existence continues to fascinate the public. However, many remain unconvinced. Forty-one percent of those polled disagree with the notion that extraterrestrial life may be walking and talking among us, with the remaining 22 percent still unsure. The out-of-this-world findings emerged from a survey conducted by Talker Research on behalf of Wealth of Geeks.com.
