Netflix's support of Dave Chappelle is setting a dangerous precedent. Here's why.

The growing controversy over Dave Chappelle’s stand-up special, "The Closer," in which he makes jokes about the trans community, has put Netflix on the defensive. NCHR’s president explains why hate speech is infectious and dangerous, especially when targeting groups that already face discrimination. https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/2021/10/15/dave-chappelle-netflix-the-closer-set-dangerous-precedent/8450189002/

As Netflix chief Ted Sarandos doubles down on his defense of "The Closer," the streaming service has fired an employee who leaked data to the media.

Biden administration moves to curtail toxic ‘forever chemicals’

Thank you to the Biden Administration EPA for tackling the problem posed by PFAS toxic chemicals. PFAS are known as “forever” chemicals because they do not break down naturally and they are now in our water, soil and bodies They can cause cancer and other serious health problems. Do you know where these toxic chemicals are hiding in your home? https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2021/10/18/epa-regulate-forever-chemicals-pfas/

The Biden administration will move Monday to regulate a group of long-lasting chemicals that pose serious health risks to millions of Americans, and pervade everyday products such as cosmetics, dental floss, fast food containers and drinking water.

Serious heart events, cancer, blood clots for certain JAK inhibitors

Do you or one of your loved ones take Xeljanz or Xeljanz XR (tofacitinib)? FDA’s new warning is that compared to arthritis drugs that are "tumor necrosis factor blockers," Xeljanz increases the chances of heart attacks, strokes cancer, blood clots, and death. Two other arthritis drugs, Olumiant (baricitinib) and Rinvoq (upadacitinib), will have similar new safety warnings. FDA says all 3 will now only be approved for possible use by patients who have not benefited from arthritis drugs known as tumor necrosis factor blockers.

FDA cautions against off-label use of Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine in younger children

Now that the Pfizer vaccine is approved by the FDA, many people will have more confidence in it. BUT FDA warns that it should not be given to kids under the age of 12, because the correct dose for kids hasn’t been determined. Kids aren’t just small adults.

FDA narrows use for controversial new Alzheimer's drug after criticism

FDA admits one of their mistakes regarding the new Alzheimers drug, and changes to approval to target mild Alzheimer’s, rather than all Alzheimer’s.

Thanks for contributing to this important article on failures with diabetic devices!
Let's talk Pfizer's COVID 19 vaccine. They are misleading the public on many levels. Proposed vaccine is not only preliminary (trials incomplete; only a press release) but 1) not yet peer reviewed 2) has not even been approved by FDA 3) only 38,955 participants 4) contains body parts of aborted fetuses (just like other vaccines) 5) contains high levels of heavy metals (also like other vaccines, including children's vaccinations 6) it took 2 doses/shots to reach the level of effectiveness Pfizer claims. Also not reported is how throughout history Coronavirus vaccines are ineffective due to short lasting antibodies, thus requiring multiple doses every few months. Last, it is unknown how long protection via the vaccine might last, whether it protects those who have previously had coronavirus, and whether it prevents people from catching the virus and passing it on or simply reduces the severity of symptoms. Obvious motivation behind Pfizer CEO selling off 60% of his stock at $5.6 million day of press release, suggesting he knew challenges remained ahead obtaining peer-review and FDA approval, at least. But with excitement over Biden's win and ANY claim of a "90% effectiveness" of a vaccine, supports the CEO's cash out.
Study and observation following the children who are very ill from COVID 19 and/or what is currently being called a "syndrome" closely related, should also focus on 1) household history for use of chemicals like bleach and alcohol 2) history of over use of antibiotics (reported complication from these used against bacteria overgrowth with Syndrome) 3) current excessive use of bleach and alcohol products as preventative measures encouraged by CDC, when they know these destroy the good gut bacteria, on top of over use of antibiotics. This "syndrome" suggests preexisting weakened immune system which sets the stage for bacteria overgrowth and candida, both which support virus takeover systemically. As a Nation, our children are highly subjected to many heavy metals in vaccinations, in addition to over use of household chemicals on daily basis, as proven by past EPA studies. All of the above supports the hyper lymphatic and circulatory system response in these children.
Kedves Professzor Urak és Hölgyek! Az interneten olvastam, hogy az Önök kutatásaik alatt kifejlesztettek egy gyógyszert, melynek neve recardio. A leírása szerint a gyógyszer megszünteti az erekben a lerekódot koleszterint, ami elzárja az ereket Így normális vérellátást kap a szervezet. Minek hatására elmúlik a magas vérnyomás, s vele együtt a szív és a többi szerv helytelen müködése. Szeretném kérdezni Önöket, hogy ez igaz e vagy hamis állitás, mert egy német Walter Bormann nevű orvos kutató 39 euróért hírdeti a 25 arabos Recardiót.. Egyébkén nevem Fehér György Márk magyar álampolgárságu Németországban lakó idős ember vagyok. 1995 óta koszoruér betegségben szenvedek.

Updates: New York announced today high numbers of infected for those who claim to be at home, but obviously they are still getting out and about. Virus is so complicated, new high numbers of children are experiencing a variety of different terrible symptoms and are very ill. Also new mutation is more easily transmitted. New science shows virus clogs up the lungs preventing oxygen getting to the rest of the body causing organ damage even if you survive. Antibodies are short lived, too. Airborne longer than we are told so far, also longer on surfaces per history of family chain of coronaviruses which transmit between animals and humans. Updates show sneezes and coughs are not required to spread it from the infected body; breathing works. Bottom line, it's airborne and when you walk into air space of one infected, whether they are newly sick with no symptoms yet, or most likely asymptomatic given they are out in public, droplets are constantly dropping from the air, attach to your hair, skin, clothes, purse, eyes, phone, etc. Even wearing a mask has a downside as you continually breathe back in toxic gases that are always exiting the body, which overloads the lungs, too; another predisposition most are not taking into account. STAY HOME.
I fear our Country will not further study using NAC, most successful chelator removing heavy metals from the cell, against COVID 19, due to ongoing cover up and denial of influx of metal exposure from vaccines, medical devices, etc.
Up to date summary from scientists I follow: 1) coronaviruses throughout history do NOT have long lasting antibodies which promotes reinfection 2) HIV component 3) asthmatics can expect "severe" asthma reaction due to hemorrhaging of vessels in lungs and expect worldwide shortages on asthma medications, including steroids, as there will be long term, maybe permanent side effects after recovery; not just for lungs, but for at least the heart and many countries who manufacture these meds are now keeping their supply for their own patients 4) virus greatly affects other body organs like heart, kidneys, liver and digestive tract 5) as predicted months ago mutations would eventually affect children which supports continued home education and parents staying home causing worse shortages 6) airborne longer in situations as high humidity and contained environments like schools, stores and nursing homes 7) potential for exposure through some uncooked foods 8) autoimmune response and 9) I expect eventual recognition for risk through meat once virus spreads to farm animals due to HIV factor.
