Introduction PCR Test

Polymearase Chain Reaction (PCR) test:
The pcr tests for fragments of the SARS-COV-2 virus,
NOT for the Covid-19 disease.

Healthy people testing “positive” are not “cases”.
A medical “case” has to be ill or show symptoms needing treatment.
To get 100% confirmed real positives, the PCR test must be run at no more than 17 amplification cycles.
Patients cannot be contagious above 25 cycles.
The maximum reasonably reliable Ct value is 30 cycles.
Above 35 cycles, 97% false positives can be expected.
The UK NHS is using up to 45 amplification cycles.
22 international scientists found 10 fatal problems 
in the Corman-Drosten paper (basis of the pcr test) and published them in a peer review.
PCR tests are not suitable as specific diagnostic tool.

What Is The PCR Test?

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)  is a method widely used to rapidly make millions to billions of copies of a specific DNA sample, allowing scientists to take a very small sample of DNA and amplify it to a large enough amount to study in detail.
A limitation of PCR is that even the smallest amount of contaminating DNA can be amplified, resulting in misleading or ambiguous results. 

If you want to dive deeper into the science, read “PCR Amplification

There is a huge difference between being infected – and being ill.
Healthy people testing positive for coronavirus should not be labelled as “cases”; a “case” has to be ill or show symptoms needing hospital admission. Calling asymptomatic people “a case”,
is medically and psychologically wrong.
Testing infections in a hospital intensive care unit (ICU) brings naturally MUCH higher results than tests including the healthy population (“pillar 2” in the UK). A lot of the same people are being tested once a week, such as nurses and care assistants and people going in to hospitals, so although they may have done say ‘20,000’ tests, that’s 5000 people tested four times each.
“And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for Covid. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infectionIt’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stopUnless you’re presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem.”
[23 Nov. Dr. Roger Hodkinson, ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association and chairman of a bio technology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test. Full audio is HERE]

A Doctor Reports – from jbhandleyblog.com:
During my career in family medicine, including several years as an Army physician, I have cared for patients with chickenpox, shingles, Lyme disease as well as measles, tuberculosis, malaria, and AIDS.
The “case definition” established for all of these diseases by the CDC requires the presence of signs and symptoms of that disease. Having now been privileged to care for sick patients with COVID-19, both in and out of the hospital setting, I am happy to see the number of these sick patients dwindle almost to zero in my community – while the “case numbers” for COVID-19 continue to go up.

Why is that?
In marked contrast to measles, shingles, and other infectious disease, “cases” of COVID-19 do NOT require the presence of ANY symptoms whatsoever. Health departments are encouraging everyone and anyone to come in for testing, and each positive test is reported as yet another “new” case of COVID-19!

Hence, anyone who has a positive PCR test (the nasal swab, PCR test for COVID Antigen or Nucleic Acid) or serological test (blood test for antibodies –IgG and/or IgM) would be classified as a “case” – even in the absence of symptoms.
In our hospitals at this time, there are hundreds of former nursing home residents sitting in “COVID” units who are in their usual state of good health, banned from returning to their former nursing home residences simply because they have TESTED Positive for COVID-19 during mass testing programs in the nursing homes.

The presence of a positive lab test for COVID-19 in a person who has never been sick is actually GOOD news for that person and for the rest of us.
The positive test indicates that this person has likely mounted an adequate immune response to a small dose of COVID-19 to whom he or she was exposed – naturally (hence, no need for a vaccine vs. COVID-19). 
John Thomas Littell, MD, Florida

False Positives & False Negatives

The UK government posted the following study on 3rd of June 2020: “Impact of false-positives and false-negatives in the UK’s COVID-19 RT-PCR testing programme“:
What is the UK operational false positive rate?
“The UK operational false positive rate is unknown… An attempt has been made to estimate the likely false-positive rate of national COVID-19 testing programmes by examining data from published external quality assessments (EQAs) for RT-PCR assays for other RNA viruses carried out between 2004-2019 [7]… giving a median false positive rate of 2.3% (interquartile range 0.8-4.0%).”
What is the UK operational false negative rate?
The UK operational false negative rate is unknown. A recent study [6] combined results from seven studies… Their model suggested that in the first four days of infection (presymptomatic phase) the probability of a false negative in an infected person decreased from 100% on day 1 (i.e. a false negative was certain) to 67% on day 4.
It then decreased to 38% on day 5 (day of symptom onset) to a minimum of 20% on day 8 of infection.
The false negative rate then increased from day 9 (21%) to day 21 (66%).”
[The “Figure 3” graphic further down illustrates these findings]

Former CSO and VP, Allergy and Respiratory Research Head with Pfizer Global R&D and co-Founder of Ziarco Pharma Ltd., Dr Mike Yeadon writes:
I have identified a serious, really a fatal flaw in the PCR test used in what is called by the UK Government the Pillar 2 screening – that is, testing many people out in their communities… the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, misled the House of Commons and also made misleading statements”
Dr Mike Yeadon explains, that a pcr test with 0.8% false positive results means, that 89-94% of pcr “cases” are FALSE positives, as only about 0.1% of the population have coronavirus.

Dr. Wolfgang Wodard“How can a test that turns out positive for the many different SARS viruses of bats, dogs, tigers, lions, domestic cats and humans, which have been changing and spreading worldwide for many years, be called specific for the detection of an allegedly only four-month-old SARS-CoV-2?”
“The test seemingly also measures earlier SARS variants that are constantly altering, can change hosts quickly and are not found in virologists’ databases. However, these were and are obviously not considered to be extraordinarily dangerous.”

Cycle Threshold/Amplifications

According to an April 2020 study in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, to get 100% confirmed real positives, the PCR test must be run at no more than 17 amplification cycles.

Bullard et al reported that patients could not be contagious with PCR Cycle threshold Ct >25 as the virus is not detected in culture above this value. 
[this means: if you don’t find a positive virus test result with 25 cycles / amplifications, there is no point increasing the cycles any further]

The threshold value cutoff for the CDC’s PCR test is 40 cycles [of amplifications], a value that many medical experts believe returns false positives, as fragments of a killed virus may be picked up….
What the Cycle threshold [Ct] cutoff value should be varies in discussions among the scientific community, but generally ranges between 25 and 30 with agreement that patients cannot be contagious above these numbers.

Another viral culture study… reported that patients with threshold values at 34 or above did not “excrete infectious viral particles.” 
““We know that after about one week of infection from SARS-CoV-2, people are no longer infectious to others, but they still will be positive with PCR testing because they’ll still have bits of the virus within their body.”
[from: COVID Test Scam: Cycle Threshold Values Being Deliberately Omitted]

The chance of detecting a positive culture using the PCR test after 34 or more amplifications is near zero

The UK Express writes on 6 September:
“Research by experts at Oxford University suggests as many as half of the “positive” tests relied upon could actually be false because the current test is so sensitive it can pick up dead and harmless viral particles that are shed once the infection has passed.”

The NHS / UK is using 45 cycle amplifications
in the PCR test:

From “Appendix 5: PHE COVID-19 testing protocol (if not using commercial assay)”, page 21 on www.england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/wp-content/uploads/sites/52/2020/03/guidance-and-sop-covid-19-virus-testing-in-nhs-laboratories-v1.pdf
Here is a short video explaining this

“The PCR swabs take one or two sequences of a molecule that are invisible to the human eye and therefore need to be amplified in many cycles to make it visible. Everything over 35 cycles is, as reported by The NewYork Times and others, considered completely unreliable and scientifically unjustifiable. However, the Drosten test, as well as the WHO recommended tests that followed his example, are set to 45 cycles.”
The test cannot distinguish inactive and reproductive matter. That means that a positive result may happen because the test detects, for example, a piece of debris, a fragment of a molecule which may signal nothing else, then that the immune system of the person tested won a battle with a common cold in the past.” [‘from Crimes against humanity‘]

The maximum reasonably reliable Ct value is 30 cycles. 
Above a Ct of 35 cycles, rapidly increasing numbers of
false positives must be expected.
only non-infectious (dead) viruses are detected with Ct values of 35.” [CORMAN-DROSTEN REVIEW REPORT]

Peer Review Corman-Drosten Paper

On 27th of November, 22 scientists published:
External peer review of the RTPCR test to detect SARS-CoV-2 reveals 10 major scientific flaws at the molecular and methodological level: consequences for false positive results
“There are ten fatal problems with the Corman-Drosten paper”
“The published RT-qPCR protocol for detection and diagnostics of 2019-nCoV and the manuscript suffer from numerous technical and scientific errors, including insufficient primer design, a problematic and insufficient RT-qPCR protocol, and the absence of an accurate test validation.
Neither the presented test nor the manuscript itself fulfils the requirements for an acceptable scientific publication.

This has huge world wide implications, as the WHO-protocol directly derives from the Corman-Drosten paper.

“Further, serious conflicts of interest of the authors are not mentioned. Finally, the very short timescale between submission and acceptance of the publication (24 hours) signifies that a systematic peer review process was either not performed here, or of problematic poor quality.”
We provide compelling evidence of several scientific inadequacies, errors and flaws.
“Considering the scientific and methodological blemishes presented here, we are confident that the editorial board of Eurosurveillance has no other choice but to retract the publication.”
[from Review report Corman-Drosten et al. Eurosurveillance 2020, 27 November]

The CORMAN-DROSTEN REVIEW REPORT continues:
In case of virus detection, >35 cycles only detects signals which do not correlate with infectious virus as determined by isolation in cell culture [reviewed in 2]; if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the case in most laboratories in Europe & the US), the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%
There exists no specified reason to use these extremely high concentrations of primers in this protocol. Rather, these concentrations lead to increased unspecific binding and PCR product amplification.
The design variations will inevitably lead to results that are not even SARS CoV-2 related. Therefore, the confusing unspecific description in the Corman-Drosten paper is not suitable as a Standard Operational Protocol.
“…in nearly all test procedures worldwide, merely 2 primer matches were used instead of all three. This oversight renders the entire test-protocol useless with regards to delivering accurate test-results of real significance.
A better primer design would have terminal primers on both ends of the viral genome. This is because the whole viral genome would be covered and three positive signals can better discriminate between a complete (and thus potentially infectious) virus and fragmented viral genomes (without infectious potency).

Figure 2 from the The CORMAN-DROSTEN REVIEW REPORT

The CORMAN-DROSTEN REVIEW REPORT continues:
[All three primers have GC values BELOW the 40% minimum (28% 31% and 34.6%)]
“If the Tm-value is very low, as observed for all wobbly-variants of the RdRp reverse primers, the primers can bind non-specifically to several targets, decreasing specificity and increasing potential false positive results.”
A maximal Tm difference of 2° C within primer pairs was considered acceptable. Testing the primer pairs specified in the Corman-Drosten paper, we observed a difference of 10° C …
This is a very serious error and makes the protocol useless as a specific diagnostic tool.
“…the dNTPs (0.4uM) are 2x higher than recommended for a highly specific amplification
The design errors described here are so severe that it is highly unlikely that specific amplification of SARS-CoV-2 genetic material will occur using the protocol of the Corman-Drosten paper.
“…the case of small fragments of qPCR (around 100bp):
It could be either 1,5% agarose gel or even an acrylamide gel.”
The fact that these PCR products have not been validated at molecular level is another striking error of the protocol, making any test based upon it useless as a specific diagnostic tool to identify the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

the functionality of the published RT-PCR Test was not demonstrated with the use of a positive control (isolated SARS-CoV-2 RNA) which is an essential scientific gold standard.”
the E gene used in RT-PCR test, as described in the Corman-Drosten paper, is not specific to SARS-CoV-2.
The E gene primers also detect a broad spectrum of other SARS viruses.
The genome of the coronavirus is the largest of all RNA viruses that infect humans and they all have a very similar molecular structure.
Still, SARS-CoV1 and SARS-CoV-2 have two highly specific genetic fingerprints, which set them apart from the other coronaviruses.
First, a unique fingerprint-sequence (KTFPPTEPKKDKKKK) is present in the N-protein of SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 [13,14,15]. Second, both SARS-CoV1 and SARS-CoV2 do not contain the HE protein, whereas all other coronaviruses possess this gene [13, 14].
In order to specifically detect a SARS-CoV1 and SARS-CoV-2 PCR product the above region in the N gene should have been chosen as the amplification target.
A reliable diagnostic test should focus on this specific region in the N gene as a confirmatory test. The PCR for this N gene was not further validated nor recommended as a test gene by the Drosten-Corman paper, because of being “not so sensitive” with the SARS-CoV original probe [1].”

“The Corman-Drosten paper does not contain this [the HE gene] negative control, nor does it contain any other negative controls. The PCR test in the Corman-Drosten paper therefore contains neither a unique positive control nor a negative control to exclude the presence of other coronaviruses. This is another major design flaw

There should be a Standard Operational Procedure (SOP) available, which unequivocally specifies the above parameters, so that all laboratories are able to set up the identical same test conditions. To have a validated universal SOP is essential, because it facilitates data comparison within and between countries. It is very important to specify all primer parameters unequivocally. We note that this has not been done... The protocol as described is unfortunately very vague and erroneous in its design
“It is inevitable that this test will generate a tremendous number of so-called “false positives”.”
The Corman-Drosten paper was not peer-reviewed
“two authors of the Corman-Drosten paper, Christian Drosten and Chantal Reusken, are also members of the editorial board of this journal [19]. Hence there is a severe conflict of interest” [source]

Understanding cycle threshold (Ct) in SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR: a guide for health protection teams [by gov.uk, 28 October]
Cycle threshold (Ct) is a semi-quantitative value that can broadly categorise the concentration of viral genetic material in a patient sample following testing by RT PCR as low, medium or high –that is, it tells us approximately how much viral genetic material is in the sample.
A low Ct indicates a high concentration of viral genetic material, which is typically associated with high risk of infectivity.
A high Ct indicates a low concentration of viral genetic material which is typically associated with a lower risk of infectivity.
In the context of an upper respiratory tract sample a high Ct may also represent scenarios where a higher risk of infection remains –for example, early infection, inadequately collected or degraded sample.
The cycle threshold (Ct) can be defined as the thermal cycle number at which the fluorescent signal exceeds that of the background and thus passes the threshold for positivity (Figure 1, page 5).”

Figure 1 from Understanding cycle threshold (Ct) in SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR: a guide for health protection teams 28 October 2020

gov.uk continues: “A typical RT-PCR assay will have a maximum of 40 thermal cycles… A 3-point increase in Ct value is roughly equivalent to a 10-fold decrease in the quantity of viral genetic material [in the sample].”

Ct values cannot be directly compared between assays of different types due to variation in the sensitivity (limit of detection), chemistry of reagents, gene targets, cycle parameters, analytical interpretive methods, sample preparation and extraction techniques.
Additionally, Ct values are not provided for all SARS-CoV-2 molecular detection methodsSome commercial RT-PCR techniques are closed ‘black box’systems whereby the operator cannot observe the reaction in real-time and the result is interpreted by software into a qualitative non-interrogatable positive or negative result. [gov.uk]

Figure 2 from Understanding cycle threshold (Ct) in SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR: a guide for health protection teams 28 October 2020

A single Ct [Cycle threshold] value in the absence of clinical context cannot be relied upon for decision making about a person’s infectivity.
There are many different SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assays/platforms in use across the UK. Ct values cannot be directly compared between assays of different types – not all laboratories use the same assay, and some may use more than one.” [gov.uk]

Figure 3 from Understanding cycle threshold (Ct) in SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR: a guide for health protection teams 28 October 2020

“Positive results with low viral load (high Ct) can be seen in the early stages of infection (before the person becomes capable of transmission of the infection) or late in infection when the risk of transmission is low (periods indicated by the dotted red line).
Recovery phase of infection with diminishing viral load.
Prolonged detection of viral genetic material that is likely to be non-infectious has been observed for SARS-CoV-2.” [gov.uk]

WHO Update PCR Users

WHO UPDATE re. PCR Tests from 20 January 2021:
It seems like the criticism (see more in this chapter) about the number of pcr test amplifications / cycle threshold and the big number of false positve test results has forced the WHO to send out the following NOTICE:
WHO Information Notice for IVD Users 2020/05
Product type: Nucleic acid testing (NAT) technologies that use polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for detection of SARS-CoV-2
Target audience: laboratory professionals and users of IVDs.
Purpose of this notice: clarify information previously provided by WHO. This notice supersedes WHO Information Notice for In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device (IVD) Users 2020/05 version 1, issued 14 December 2020.
Description of the problem: WHO requests users to follow the instructions for use (IFU) when interpreting results for specimens tested using PCR methodology.  
Users of IVDs must read and follow the IFU carefully to determine if manual adjustment of the PCR positivity threshold is recommended by the manufacturer.
WHO guidance Diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 states that careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed (1). The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken and retested using the same or different NAT technology.
WHO reminds IVD users that disease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases (2). This means that the probability that a person who has a positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) is truly infected with SARS-CoV-2 decreases as prevalence decreases, irrespective of the claimed specificity.
Most PCR assays are indicated as an aid for diagnosis, therefore, health care providers must consider any result in combination with timing of sampling, specimen type, assay specifics, clinical observations, patient history, confirmed status of any contacts, and epidemiological information.

Actions to be taken by In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device (IVD) users:
…4. Provide the Ct value in the report to the requesting health care provider.

The US CDC published the following instructions after being criticised:

• Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms.
• The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection.
• This test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.

No Asymptomatic Transmission

A peer reviewed article in Nature.com (20 November) looking at PCR test data from nearly 10 million residents in Wuhan city found that  not a single one of those who had been in close contact with an asymptomatic individual tested positive
Of the 34,424 residents with a history of COVID-19, 107 individuals tested positive a second time, but none were symptomatic and none were infectious.
This research paper also indicates that “virulence of SARS-CoV-2 virus may be weakening over time
[summarised by Dr. Mercola 4 Dec & The Last refuge 20 Dec. – read more about Natural Immunity after covid-19]

HealthTruth.info comment:
Without asymptomatic transmissions, all of the current lock-down regulations, mask wearing requirements and social distancing rules have no scientific basis, and could be challenged in court.

Dr Michael Yeadon @MichaelYeadon3, 21 Nov. on Twitter:
“The first time the notion of “asymptomatic transmission” was mentioned, I smelled a rat. It’s biologically implausible. Not saying it’s never happened once, but as an important contribution to transmission? No. To be a source, you need lots of virus in your airway. But once that happens, you will be symptomatic, either because the virus is injuring your lung lining (epithelium) or because you’re fighting it off (or both). You can’t be both a virulent source AND not have symptoms.
Yet it was on the basis that you often wouldn’t show symptoms yet place others at risk that MASS TESTING, all the time, in ever-increasing numbers, was commenced. Now we formally know what basic biology and immunology told us, we can HALT MASS TESTING OF THE ASYMPTOMATIC. We’ve said it for months.
Mr Hancock, stop it now.”

Asymptomatic transmission”… 
To be a source, you need lots of virus in your airway. Once that happens, you will be symptomatic. You can’t be both a virulent source AND not have symptoms.
[Dr Michael Yeadon]

Dr. Anthony Fauci, U.S. Director of National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Disease: “In all the history of respiratory-borne viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks. The driver of outbreaks is ALWAYS a symptomatic person.” – youtu.be/JIOzN03ZWXY

The Situation @ Universities

5 October 2020 Update from 50 US universities:
3 real cases, and 69.441 FALSE positive “cases” among students.
Why are students forced to self-isolate, based on PCR tests???

6 December: “All 31 Colleges of the University of Cambridge [UK], and 6 Houses of the Cambridge Theological Federation, participated in the programme. Based on these data, we did not detect any new cases of asymptomatic COVID-19 amongst 9,376 students living in College accommodation screened this week.” [source]
[10 tests were originally positive, but were all found to be “false positives” after confirmatory tests.] See table below.

UoC Asymptomatic COVID-19Screening Programme:
Week 9 (30th November – 6th December 2020) Cambridge University: 0 cases

HealthTruth.info comment: Could this be the end of the pandemic? Due to mingling and mixing at university, a healthy natural immunity is likely to have been aquired among the students.

PCR Tests Scientifically Meaningless?

This OFF-Guardian research article COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless, digs deep into the science, and painstakingly shows why we should not use these tests or even base a lockdown decisions on them.
PCR is extremely sensitive, which means it can detect even the smallest pieces of DNA or RNA — but it cannot determine where these particles came from. None of the science teams of the relevant papers which are referred to in the context of SARS-CoV-2 for proof could confirm the electron-microscopic shots depicted in their in vitro experiments show purified viruses.
“sleek polymerase chain reaction… tells little or nothing about how a virus multiplies, which animals carry it, [or] how it makes people sick. [It is] like trying to say whether somebody has bad breath by looking at his fingerprint.”
There is no scientific proof that those RNA sequences are the causative agent of … COVID-19, and there are no distinctive specific symptoms for COVID-19.
Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms” [CDC RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel]

Many PCR tests have a “cycle quantification” (Cq) value of over 35.
If you are looking for presumed RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, the RNA must be converted to complementary cDNA with the enzyme Reverse Transcriptase—hence the “RT” at the beginning of “PCR” or “qPCR.” But this transformation process is widely recognised as inefficient and variable, as the amount of DNA obtained with the same RNA base material can vary widely, even by a factor of 10.

On 7 July 2020, Politifact published a “fact check” response to this article, claiming the article is ‘inaccurate’, without contacting either OffGuardian or the authors for comment. Here is the Open Letter: Refuting Politifact’s “fact check” by Torsten Engelbrecht.

Data, Tests & Statistics

COVID cases in England aren’t rising: here’s why
by Carl Heneghan, Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine 2 Aug 2020:
“The government has restricted movements on millions of people in England: COVID is apparently on the rise. But what happens when you start digging into the data. I have used the following data sets to piece together the number of tests, cases and results for Pillar 1* (done in healthcare settings) and Pillar 2*  (tests are done in the community)”

Carl Heneghan: COVID cases in England aren’t rising: here’s why
On first glance it looks like the number of cases in Pillar 2 is trending up and Pillar 1 is trending down. This would suggest that the increase in hospitals – in the sickest (Pillar 1) – is staying the same; while in the community Pillar 2 testing is picking up milder asymptomatic disease.
By the 31st July, the  Pillar, 1 seven day average for testing had increased to 49,543 (a 20% increase); while the Pillar 2 had risen by much more – by 82% to 78,522 tests.

“The next graph shows what happens when you adjust for the number of tests done and then standardise to per 100,000 tests. Pillar 1 is seen to be still trending down, but Pillar 2 is now flatlining. The increase in the number of cases detected, therefore, is likely due to the increase in testing in Pillar 2.”

Carl Heneghan: COVID cases in England aren’t rising: here’s why After adjustment per 100 000 tests. It is essential to adjust for the number of tests being done.

Inaccuracies in the data and poor interpretation will often lead to errors in decisions about imposing restrictions
[Carl Heneghan]

The same situation in the US:
“the sudden jump in cases in February correlates with the emergence of test kits sent out by the CDC. Once those test kits were used up, the number of “cases” again dried up. Then, once test kits became readily available again in early April, the number of cases skyrocketed — as you’d expect. But again, this doesn’t mean the disease was spreading like wildfire….Increased Testing = Increased ‘Cases’

19 October: Patrick Vallance, the Chief Scientist, said: ‘At the moment we think that the epidemic is doubling roughly every seven days.” 
Vallance said “If, and that’s quite a big if, but if that continues unabated… you would end up with something like 50,000 cases in the middle of October per day.”

The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine in Oxford put the doubling to the test by creating a tracker of the projection.
At the moment there is a significant divergence in the case data”.
Did we not learn from prof Neil Ferguson to distrust mathematical projections? Still they are used to terrify us and justify lockdown.

Tested “cases” versus case predicted model by Patrick Vallance, the Chief Scientist
Tracking UK Covid-19 Cases” data until 19 October

The media focussed on reporting the (green) predictions, but not the real tested “cases”.

Update 28 Nov: Portuguese Court Rules PCR Tests “Unreliable” & Quarantines “Unlawful” [Nov 11]
“An appeals court in Portugal has ruled that the PCR process is not a reliable test for Sars-Cov-2, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful.
Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty.
“Most importantly, the judges ruled that a single positive PCR test cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.”
“The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable.”
THIS court ruling, based on THIS STUDY, has huge implications for other countries, and was ignored in the main stream media.

And The UK Government?

Does the UK government take notice of the above findings?

The British Government ordered over three million of test kits from China in spring, and found they are not useable.

In August they called back 750 000 PCR test kits as faulty. They seem to be spending and wasting vast amounts of money towards big companies.
What are these pcr tests good for?

Australien Government
Dept. of Health information

Despite the faults and problems of the PCR test, the UK government decided to spend more money on this project:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 100bn-testing.png
the bmj: “the plans have the potential to grow the UK’s testing capacity from the current 350 000 a day to up to 10 million tests a day by early 2021.”
Critics have already rounded on the plans as “devoid of any contribution from scientists, clinicians, and public health and testing and screening experts,” and “disregarding the enormous problems with the existing testing and tracing programmes.”

Antigen Tests & Antibody Tests

What is an ANTIGEN Test?
An antigen test is a diagnostic test that checks to see if you’re infected with the coronavirus. The test looks for proteins (antigens) in a sample taken from your nose or throat. Antigen tests are faster than PCR tests, but they have a higher risk of false positives (meaning that they’re more likely to say you have the infection when you don’t). This may also be called a rapid test or rapid diagnostic test. [webmd.com]

An antigen is a substance recognized by the body’s immune system, which can [then] respond by generating proteins called antibodies that specifically recognize that antigen.”
The rapid test—officially known as the Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA …promises to “quickly detect fragments of proteins found on or within the virus by testing samples collected from the nasal cavity using swabs,” It can provide results within 15 minutes.

ANTIBODY tests, on the other hand, look for antibodies a person’s immune system has made in response to the virus—that helps doctors determine whether a person has previously been exposed to COVID-19.
A positive antigen test reflects active infection, while a positive antibody test reflects recent or past infection

Possibilities & Theories

The COVID-19 PCR-Test – A Shot of Nanoparticles for Your Brain?” [14 Nov]:
Could it be, that the tips of the pcr test swabs contain nanoparticles, and when insterted deep through the nose to the the thin, sensitive, fragile cribriform plate (which is like an entry to the brain, perforated with fine holes), and when the long swab is turned, it depostis these near the brain? These holes are traversed by nerve cells (neurons) of the olfactory nerve.
“RNA vaccines offer many advantages. The physicians would not necessarily have to inject the vaccine. Most RNA vaccines are directly nasally administered. This seems to make sense, since many infections start in the upper mucous membranes“.

Intro Summary:

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine/#intro updatd 15 June 2021

Is the Covid-19 vaccine safe? It is a new mRNA gene therapy technology. Below you find data from the UK government – and a different way how to interpret them and put them into context.
mRNA vaccines have never been licensed before. RNA is the only molecule known to recapitulate all biochemical functions of life: definition, control, and transmission of genetic information

Since the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-1) outbreak in 2002 there have been numerous coronavirus vaccine animal studies conducted: either the animals were not completely protected, became severely ill with accelerated autoimmune conditions, or died, primarily attributed to what is called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE).
The SARS-CoV-2 virus (which can cause covid-19 symptoms) is from the same cronavirus family as SARS-1.
Experimental vaccines for SARS, MERS, HIV, and other diseases have not been proven effective and safe for humans.

Pfizer’s and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles (polyethylene glycol). This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would attack and destroy kill any foreign material. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to imbalance certain immune responses and can induce allergies and even autoimmune diseases.
Neither Pfizer/BioNTech nor Moderna have ‘completely’ disclosed everything in their vaccines. [source]

The following comparison clearly shows: covid-19 is not a normal vaccine in terms of reported side effects. The diagramme for 2021 is based on less than half a year of reporting:

Figure 1: “side effects of important vaccines from the year 2000 in the WHO database VigiAccess”. Source: corona-transition.org

Normally a vaccines would need to be tested AT LEAST five years.
Fast-track policy is a recipe for mass disaster.
Vaccine manufacturers unlimited freedom to create, develop, and market vaccines without any liability.

All covid-19 vaccines are 'Leaky' vaccines, only preventingsymptoms, NOT infection or virus transmission

WARNING: As the vaccines are gradually offered to younger people, we can expect MORE adverse reactions:Adverse reactions were generally milder and reported less frequently in older adults (65 years and older) than in younger people.” [quote from UK government Coronavirus vaccine – weekly summary of Yellow Card report]

Some UK adverse reactions to covid-19 vaccines compared to the six covid-19 symptoms
Six screenshots from the UK Yellow Card Analysis of the AstraZeneca vaccine,
listing adverse effect on now 116 pages.

Covid-vaccines are not just “normal” vaccines like the ones we have for decades: About 200 flu vaccine fatalities were counted in 54 years ( = 4 / year)
Unreported by the media, the 1000th covid vaccine fatality was registered on the UK Yellow Card scheme around 18th of April 2021.

According to the UK Yellow Card scheme,
Flu vaccines caused about 4 deaths / year
= 1 death in 3 months.
mRNA Pfizer = 236 deaths in 3 months
AstraZeneca = 521 deaths in 3 months

When it comes to adverse events, covid vaccines are off the scale of traditional vaccines:

VAERS data show more than 10 times as many covid vaccine fatalities than the usual vaccines. VAERS is the US equivalent to the UK’s Yellow Card scheme.

UK Adverse Reactions to Covid-Vaccines

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine/#deathcount updated 26 June 2021

With 11 days delay, the UK government publishes the cumulative total numbers of adverse reactions and fatalities after the covid vaccine was administered.

UK government website for data and insights on coronavirus (COVID-19) (positive tests, deaths within 28 days, hospital admissions, virus tests. Updated daily)
Weekly UK Yellow Card reports of adverse covid vaccine reactions
(updated Thursdays), with the detailed analysis prints and cumulative total data.

Cumulative UK Yellow Card adverse reactions, updated Thursdays
Oxford University/AstraZeneca analysis print (116 pages!)
mRNA PfizerBioNTech analysis print (88 pages)
COVID-19 vaccine brand unspecified analysis print (28 pages)
NEW: Vaccine Analysis Print – Moderna (41 pages)

Yellow Card Covid vaccine adverse reactions UK by 16 June 2021
Data collected from the weekly published UK data and weekly Oxford University/AstraZeneca analysis print and mRNA PfizerBioNTech analysis print
Additionally the 16 June “unspecified brand” shows 22 fatalities +”Moderna” 5

By 16th of June 2021, a total of
1356 fatalities were reported as covid vaccine adverse reactions
in UK Yellow Cards Data Analysis Prints.
AstraZeneca’s DAP reports are now
116 pages long.

Quietly and ignored by the main stream media we reached 1000 UK deaths reported after receiving a covid vaccine in April.
Additionally there are 13 deaths listed under “unspecified brand”
and 2 brand new casualties after the 1st 100 000 were vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine:

Statistics and data are a minefield..
The data are collected and processed in the 10 days after each week ending Sunday, and published Thursdays 11 days later; if someone reports a death or reaction on day 12 or later, it is not included, but will (hopefully) be added to the totals published the following week.
The Yellow Card analysis prints do not indicate, wether reactions and fatalities occurred after the 1st or after the 2nd shot.
THIS makes it difficult to analyse the data.

A 2010 study of the US VAERS scheme concludes:”Adverse events from drugs and vaccines are common, but underreported. Although 25% of ambulatory patients experience an adverse drug event, less than 0.3% of all adverse drug events and 1-13% of serious events are reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Likewise, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported … New surveillance methods for drug and vaccine adverse effects are needed.
Barriers to reporting include a lack of clinician awareness, uncertainty about when and what to report, as well as the burdens of reporting: reporting is not part of clinicians’ usual workflow, takes time, and is
duplicative.”
VAERS is similar to the UK Yellow Card scheme, and not much has changed in the last 11 years.
The real post-vaccine reactions and fatalities might be 100x higher than the reported numbers below as only 1% of adverse reactions gets submitted.

Comparison covid-19 vaccine adverse reactions with fatal outcome in the UK Yellow Card “Case Series Drug Analysis Print” Data Lock Date: 21-Mar-2021
Data from the UK Yellow Card Analysis of AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccine

The UK MHRA reports on 1 April:
In the week since the previous summary for 14 March 2021 we have received a further 2,799 Yellow Cards for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 24,594 for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine and 54 where the brand was not specified. A higher number of doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine were administered in the last week than the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.”
These late reports indicate
1) AstraZeneca contributes MUCH more than Pfizer
2) That’s a concerning amount of adverse effects after day 11
.

The deaths registered above are just the tip of the iceberg:
The report rate in the UK population is less than 1%:

Comparing side effects of Pfizer and AstraZeneca covid vaccine trials with UK Yellow Card reports of adverse reactions 28 February 2021
The comparison of side effects recorded in the vaccine trials
with those reported in the UK YellowCard Scheme by 28 February 2021 reveal:
1) AstraZeneca shows a multitude more side effects than the Pfizer vaccine
2) Far less than 1% of post vaccine side effects are reported in the Yellow Card scheme

Compare the %age of Yellow Card reports with the documented %age of adverse reactions in the trials above!
Keep in mind, that the trials used healthy volunteers.

That is 40x more deaths than expected after a flu vaccine!
WHO statement from 2013:
for every 10 million individuals vaccinated [against Influenza A (H1N1)] in the UK, 21.5 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome and 5.75 sudden deaths were expected to occur as unrelated coincidental events within 6 weeks of vaccination. 34” [VACCINE SAFETY BASICS, p 77]

Earlier UK Data see ARCHIVE @ End

In the last decades, less than 10% of vaccine reactions and fatalities have been reported with the Yellow Card scheme – nearly always they are considered “coincidental”, but not causal [BMJ].
A study found, that in the US “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System” VAERS “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported
The real vaccine adverse effects and deaths will be at least 20 times higher.
Vaccine authorities don’t really want to know about adverse effects.
QUESTION: are UK vaccine deaths after day 8 included?

Vaccine Deaths In The News:

13 Feb 2021: 12 Residents Die After First COVID Vaccine at Fairways Newydd Nursing and Dementia Care Centre in Anglesey, Wales while 36 residents and 54 staff are now testing positive for COVID after an outbreak of covid-19, the North Wales Chronicle reports. Is this just a coincidence?

28 Jan 2021:
22 Deaths at Pemberley House:
22 people have died (over 1/3 of the residents!) at Pemberley House in Basingstoke / UK after receiving the covid-19 vaccine.
The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency (MHRA) said there was no suggestion the vaccine was responsible for the deaths.

1/3 of the residents died within three weeks after the covid-19 vaccination at Pemberley House: Residential, Nursing, Dementia & Respite Care [Daily Echo]

A spokesperson for the MHRA said “our surveillance does not suggest that the COVID-19 vaccines have contributed to any deaths... It is not unexpected that some of these people may naturally fall ill due to their age or underlying conditions shortly after being vaccinated, without the vaccine playing any role in that.”
Cllr James said “The important thing now is to ensure that nothing stops the rollout of the vaccine...I think the vaccine programme seems to be working very well. It is some good news at last.” [Daily Echo 28 Jan 2021]

Questioning The “Vaccine” Rollout

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine/#rollout updated 21 Dec 2020

NEWS: since 1st of April 2021, a third covid vaccine, “Moderna” is approved to be used in the UK

after the first of two doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, 80% of Phase 1 participants receiving the 100 microgram (mcg) dose developed systemic side effects.21
After the second dose, 100% reported side effects ranging from fatigue (80%), chills (80%), headache (60%) and myalgia or muscle pain (53%).
“One of the participants in Pfizer’s vaccine trial “woke up with chills, shaking so hard he cracked a tooth after taking the second dose.” [source]

Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA “Vaccine” BNT162b Info

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine/#pfizer updated 26 Jan 2021

All quotes in the white box below about the Pfizer vaccine are from the UK government website, selected and important passages marked in bold by HealthTruth.info.

Quotes from REG 174 Information for UK Healthcare professionals for COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 [from Pfizer]
[bold/colour highlights added by HealthTruth.info]
2. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 is highly purified single-stranded, 5’-capped messenger RNA
(mRNA) produced by cell-free in vitro transcription from the corresponding DNA templates, encoding
the viral spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2.

4.4 … General recommendations
appropriate medical treatment and supervision should always be readily available in case of a rare anaphylactic event following the administration of the vaccine. The administration of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 should be postponed in individuals suffering from acute severe febrile illness.
Individuals receiving anticoagulant therapy or those with a bleeding disorder that would contraindicate intramuscular injection, should not be given the vaccine unless the potential benefit clearly outweighs the risk of administration.
Immunocompromised persons, including individuals receiving immunosuppressant therapy, may have a diminished immune response to the vaccine.
No data are available about concomitant use of immunosuppressants.
As with any vaccine, vaccination with COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 may not protect all vaccine recipients.
No data are available … for persons that have previously received a full or partial vaccine series with another COVID-19 vaccine.

4.5 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction No interaction studies have been performed.

4.6 Fertility, pregnancy and lactation
Pregnancy: There are no or limited amount of data. Animal reproductive toxicity studies have not been completed. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2is not recommended during pregnancy. For women of childbearing age, pregnancy should be excluded before vaccination. In addition, women of childbearing age should be advised to avoid pregnancy for at least 2 months after their second dose.
Breast-feeding: It is unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2is excreted in human milk
Fertility: It is unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2has an impact on fertility.

4.8 Undesirable effects:
The most frequent adverse reactions in participants 16 years of age and older were 
Very common = red:
pain at the injection site (>80%),
fatigue (>60%)
headache (>50%)
myalgia (>30%)
chills (>30%)
arthralgia (>20%)
and pyrexia (>10%) and were usually mild or moderate in intensity and resolved within a few days after vaccination.
Common (10%-1%):
Nausea, Redness at injection site; injection site swelling )
Uncommon (1% – 0.1%):
Lymphadenopathy, Malaise 
Rare (≥1/10,000 to <1/1,000):
Acute peripheral facial paralysis (or palsy) four participants in the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine group
Very rare (<1/10,000): no reports

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties ATC code: not yet assigned
[HealthTruth.info comment: it was not published WHAT they used as a placebo in the study – probably the MenACWY vaccine against encephalitis? See below].
excluded participants who were immunocompromised
In study 2, from 44 000 participants, 21.8% were ≥ 65 years.
Efficacy:
There were 8 confirmed COVID-19 cases from 18,242 in the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine group,
and 162 cases in the placebo group of 18,379 respectively.
[Please see the HealthTruth.info comment: below.]

Reporting of suspected adverse reactions
…Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via the Coronavirus Yellow Card reporting site coronavirus-yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk or search for MHRA Yellow Card in the Google Play or Apple App Storeand include the vaccine brand and batch/Lot number if available

Mechanism of action:
The nucleoside-modified messenger RNA in COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 is formulated in
lipid nanoparticles, which enable delivery of the RNA into host cells to allow expression of the SARSCoV-2 S antigen. The vaccine elicits both neutralizing antibody and cellular immune responses to the spike (S) antigen, which may contribute to protection against COVID-19 disease.

Confirmed cases were determined by Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) and at least 1 symptom consistent with COVID-19disease*.
*Case definition [of covid-19] (at least 1 of): fever, new or increased cough, new or increased shortness of breath; chills, new or increased muscle pain, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, diarrhoea or vomiting + a positive RT-PCR test result.

5.3 Preclinical safety data …Animal studies into potential toxicity to reproduction and developmenthave not been completed

6.1 List of excipients: This vaccine contains
polyethylene glycol/macrogol (PEG) as part of ALC-0159.
ALC-0315 = (4-hydroxybutyl) azanediyl)bis (hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate),
ALC-0159 = 2-[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide,
1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine,
cholesterol,
potassium chloride,
potassium dihydrogen phosphate,

Alternative Pfizer Vaccine Analysis

Here is a fresh look at the above Pfizer trial data:
8 covid cases / 18242 x100 = 0.044% in vaccine group
162 covid cases / 18379 x100 = 0.88% in control group
WITHOUT vaccine, 0.88% of v- group = 160.5 WOULD have got covid,
That is 152.5 people (more than the 8 from 18242) = 0.836% were saved by the vaccine.
To save ONE person from covid, we needed to vaccinate 119.6 people
(NNT = “Number Needed to Treat“) [18242/152.5=119.6]
118 people did not have any benefit from the Pfizer vaccine, but all the side effects listed above under 4.8 (plus unknown long term side effects)

Looking at the POSITIVE side:
99.1% of unvaccinated people did NOT get Covid-19 disease in the Pfizer trial.

So much about the UK government information about the Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2, “this temporary authorisation grants permission for the medicine to be used for active immunization to prevent COVID-19 disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus in individuals aged 16 years of age and over”
Further down is the same info about AstraZeneca’s vaccine: go compare:

The Defender headline: doctors link pfizer, moderna vaccines to life-threatening blood disorder
The Defender, on 9 Feb 2021

The Defender reports on 9 Feb 2021: Two women, both of whom were described as healthy before they received the Moderna vaccine… ages 72 and 48, are now being treated for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), a condition that develops when the immune system attacks platelets (blood component essential for clotting) or the cells that create them, according to the Times….  ITP is a well-known adverse event associated with vaccinations. Pfizer said… “at this time, we have not been able to establish a causal association with our vaccine.”

4.8 Undesirable effects
Demographic characteristics: 9.7% were 65 years of age or older.
The most frequently reported adverse reactions were
very common (≥1/10):
injection site tenderness (>60%);
injection site pain, headache, fatigue (>50%);
myalgia, malaise (>40%);
pyrexia, chills (>30%);
and arthralgia, nausea (>20%).

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties: ATC code: J07BX03
Mechanism of action
COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca is a monovalent vaccine composed of a single recombinant, replication-deficient chimpanzee adenovirus (ChAdOx1) vector encoding the S glycoprotein of SARS CoV 2.
Following administration, the S glycoprotein of SARS CoV 2 is expressed locally stimulating neutralising antibody and cellular immune responses.

Clinical efficacy:
[what happened to the COV004 group?]
control (meningococcal vaccine or saline) 
Because of logistical constraints, the interval between dose 1 and dose 2 ranged from 4 to 26 weeks.
Overall, among the participants who received COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca… 5.9% [were] aged 65 or older
[in 4.8 it says: 9.7%?]
Exploratory analyses showed that increased immunogenicity was associated with a longer dose interval 
The number of COVID-19 cases (2) in 660 participants ≥65 years old were too few to draw conclusions on efficacy.

Alternative Analysis AstraZeneca Vaccine

Here is a fresh calculation for the trial AstraZeneca UK.gove data:
30 covid cases / 5,807 x 100 = 0.516% in vaccine group
101
covid cases / 5,829 x100 = 1.73% in control group
WITHOUT vaccine, 1.73% of the vaccine group = 100.5 WOULD have got covid
that is 70.5 people more (than the 30 from 5807) = 1.21% saved by the vaccine.
To save ONE person from covid, we need to vaccinate 82.4 people
(NNT = “Number Needed to Treat”)
[5807 / 70.5 = 82.37]
81 people did not have any benefit from the AstraZeneca vaccine, but all the side effects listed above under 4.8 (plus unknown long term side effects)

Looking at the POSITIVE side:
98.3% of unvaccinated people did NOT get Covid-19 disease in the AstraZeneca trial.

Here is some interesting information from Europe:

Pfizer vaccine Tozinameran in Europe cases = side effects show:
vast majority are care workers and female adults younger than 65
30 Jan 2021: a sad record of side effects of Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine in Europe under the brand name “Tozinameran” shows the huge number of health care workers affected – nearly 4x more women then men suffer side effects (probably due to the high percentage of female nurses and carers who had to take the vaccine?)

Better 12 Weeks Apart

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#12weeks updated 15 Feb 2021

On 30 December the four UK chief medical officers announced that the second doses of the covid vaccines should be given towards the end of 12 weeks rather than in the previously recommended 3-4 weeks. “The trials of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine did include different spacing between doses, finding that a longer gap (two to three months) led to a greater immune response,”
Both vaccines “offer considerable protection after a single dose, at least in the short term.”
In its “green book” Public Health England said that during the phase III trial most of the vaccine failures were in the days immediately after the first dose, indicating that the short term protection starts around day 10.6
Looking at the data from day 15 to 21, it calculated that the efficacy against symptomatic covid-19 [after the first injection] was around 89%

covid-19 vaccine efficacy shows maximum after 12 weeks in trial
This graphic on page 31 on the study “Single dose administration, and the influence of the timing…” looks complicated – the efficacy (hollow dots) starts below zero in the first days and keeps increasing with time.

1 Feb 2021: “Single Dose Administration, And The Influence Of The Timing Of The Booster Dose On Immunogenicity and Efficacy Of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (AZD1222) Vaccine” [The Lancet]:
Vaccine efficacy after a single standard dose of vaccine from day 22 to day 90 post vaccination was 76% (59%, 86%), and modelled analysis indicated that protection did not wane during this initial 3 month period.
Antibody levels were maintained during this period with minimal waning by day 90″
Immunogenicity data showed binding antibody responses more than 2-fold higher after an interval of 12 or more weeks compared with and interval of less than 6 weeks.”

Video + TRANSCRIPT on ANHinternational.org/news/have-you-decided…

4 December: Since the above video was recorded, the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine composition, including the nanoparticle composition, has been released by the MHRA but it does not include concentrations of ingredients making it impossible to assess toxicology. The ingredients will include 30 micrograms mRNA in each dose, along with:

  • ALC-0315 = (4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate),
  • ALC-0159 = 2[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide,
  • 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine,
  • cholesterol,
  • potassium chloride,
  • potassium dihydrogen phosphate,
  • sodium chloride,
  • disodium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate,
  • sucrose.

Above text, the video + detailed transcript are on
ANHinternational.org/news/have-you-decided-what-youll-do-or-say-if-offered-a-covid-vaccine/

Quotes from the NHA video transcript above:
“It’s essential that all known risks, relating both to the pathogen but also to the particular vaccine in question, are put in the public domain…
That means putting the raw data into the public domain so it can be analysed by independent scientists.
To-date, none of the full datasets have been released.
“The only things we’ve got to go on so far are press releases that are deeply deficient in data on both risks and benefits.”
History tells us it can be years before safety concerns are exposed, as we discovered with the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children.”

HealthTruth.info conclusion: it is common sense not to overburden the immune system with more than one lot of vaccine ingredients at a time, but leave plenty (the more, the better) of time between each vaccine to allow the body to detox various vaccine ingredients.
It would be wise to use the time before a second shot to analyse what others have experienced, and check the outcome of the animal tests.

Prion Disease & Pfizer Vaccine

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#prion-disease updated 1 March 2021

Definition: “Prion diseases (or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies) are a group of uniformly fatal neurodegenerative diseases characterised by progressive dementia and motor dysfunction. These diseases occur in spontaneous, genetic, and acquired forms. Patients commonly present with behavioural or personality changes, myoclonus, visual disturbances, movement problems, and/or incoordination. Survival from first symptom is typically <1 year in sporadic and acquired cases.” [British Medical Journal 27 Feb 2020]

COVID-19 RNA Based Vaccines and the Risk of Prion Disease
[research article 27 Dec 2020]
ABSTRACT:
“Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARSCoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine
recipients.

“The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations.
The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations…”
The spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration. The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases. The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit

Nanoparticles

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#nanoparticles updated 25 Dec 2020

The ALC-0315 (4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate) is a hexane containing compound and these are known to be potentially neurotoxic.
ALC-0159 = 2[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide contains polyethylene glycol (PEG) that is associated with hypersensitivity and allergenic reactions.
The toxicological profile of the mRNA delivery system cannot be determined because neither have the concentrations been declared, nor has the nanoparticle delivery system, surface charges and other physicochemical characteristics been declared. These may dramatically increase the toxicological profile. [source]

The covid-19 vaccine is not a fragment of a microorganism being injected to achieve immunity and a reduction in disease transmission.Instead it is a piece of synthetic genetic code being delivered to the nucleus of the cell via nanotechnology and is therefore genetic engineeringIt does not produce immunity and it does not prevent disease transmission.This meets the legal definition of a “medical device: it does not meet the legal definition of a “vaccine”.” [21 January 2021 Anna de Buisseret]

Evening standard headline:
warning after 2 NHS workers have allergic reactions to Pfizer  covid vaccine
“…They developed symptoms of “anaphylactoid reaction” shortly after receiving the vaccine…”
“Any person with a history of anaphylaxis to a vaccine, medicine or food should not receive the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. A second dose should not be given to anyone who has experienced anaphylaxis following administration of the first dose of this vaccine.” [Evening Standard, 10 December]

21 Dec 2020: Suspicions grow that nanoparticles in Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trigger rare allergic reactions
Severe allergy-like reactions in at least eight people who received the COVID-19 vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech over the past 2 weeks may be due to a compound in the packaging of the messenger RNA (mRNA) that forms the vaccine’s main ingredient.”
Polyethylene glycol (PEG) has never been used before in an approved vaccine, but it is found in many drugs that have occasionally triggered anaphylaxis—a potentially life-threatening reaction that can cause rashes, a plummeting blood pressure, shortness of breath, and a fast heartbeat. Some allergists and immunologists believe a small number of people previously exposed to PEG may have high levels of antibodies against PEG, putting them at risk of an anaphylactic reaction to the vaccine.” [More on ScienceMag.org]

Children’s Health Defense reportsmRNA vaccines undergoing Covid-19 clinical trials, including the Moderna vaccine, rely on a nanoparticle-based “carrier system” containing a synthetic chemical called polyethylene glycol (PEG).
The use of PEG in drugs and vaccines is increasingly controversial due to the well-documented incidence of adverse PEG-related immune reactions, including life-threatening anaphylaxis.
Roughly seven in ten Americans may already be sensitized to PEG, which may result in reduced efficacy of the vaccine and an increase in adverse side effects.
If a PEG-containing mRNA vaccine for Covid-19 gains FDA approval, the uptick in exposure to PEG will be unprecedented—and potentially disastrous.
PEG is used in drugs, for example in Bayer’s laxative MiraLAX (a medication used for constipation). Many parents of chronically constipated children have accused MiraLAX of provoking severe neuropsychiatric symptoms in their offspring, including mood swings, rage, phobias and paranoia.

Questioning Vaccine Trials

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#more-questions updated 13 Feb 2021

screenshot 
Del Bigtree shows covid vaccine trial monitoring begins only after 41 days
On the 3rd December, Del Bigtree from TheHighWire reveals shocking details of the covid-19 vaccine trials: they only count side effects from day 42 after the 1st vaccine

Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon request a stop of all corona vaccination studies and call for co-signing the petition [1 December 2020]
The concerns are directed in particular to the following points:
– The formation of so-called “non-neutralizing antibodies” can lead to an exaggerated immune reaction, especially when the test person is confronted with the real, “wild” virus after vaccination. This so-called antibody-dependent amplification, ADE, has long been known from experiments with corona vaccines in cats, for example. In the course of these studies all cats that initially tolerated the vaccination well died after catching the wild virus.
 The vaccinations are expected to produce antibodies against spike proteins of SARS-CoV-2. However, spike proteins also contain syncytin-homologous proteins, which are essential for the formation of the placenta in mammals such as humans. It must be absolutely ruled out that a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 could trigger an immune reaction against syncytin-1, as otherwise infertility of indefinite duration could result in vaccinated women.
– The mRNA vaccines from BioNTech/Pfizer contain polyethylene glycol (PEG)70% of people develop antibodies against this substance – this means that many people can develop allergic, potentially fatal reactions to the vaccination.
– The much too short duration of the study does not allow a realistic estimation of the late effects. As in the narcolepsy cases after the swine flu vaccination, millions of healthy people would be exposed to an unacceptable risk if an emergency approval were to be granted and the possibility of observing the late effects of the vaccination were to follow. Nevertheless, BioNTech/Pfizer apparently submitted an application for emergency approval on December 1, 2020.

Syncytin-1 is a protein that functions for placental development and therefore is essential for fertility. Fifteen years ago, it was proposed that a synthetic Syncytin-1 vaccine could be developed as a contraceptive that would work to produce antibodies against human Syncytin-1. [59]” [source]

Dr. Mike Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory [November 23]:
Dr. Michael Yeadon, who “spent over 30 years leading new [allergy and respiratory] medicines research in some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies,” and retired from Pfizer with “the most senior research position in this field,” wrote:

“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.” [Dr. Mike Yeadon]

In the article Will covid-19 vaccines save lives? Current trials aren’t designed to tell us (21 Oct) the British Medical Journal BMJ writes:
To the public this seems fairly obvious. “The primary goal of a covid-19 vaccine is to keep people from getting very sick and dying,”
The current phase III trials are not actually set up to prove either (table 1). None of the trials currently under way are designed to detect a reduction in any serious outcome such as hospital admissions, use of intensive care, or deaths. Nor are the vaccines being studied to determine whether they can interrupt transmission of the virus.”
“Hospital admissions and deaths from covid-19 are simply too uncommon in the population being studied for an effective vaccine to demonstrate statistically significant differences in a trial of 30 000 people.”

the Defender headline 9 Feb 2021: 
Immunologist: Pfizer, Moderna Vaccines Could Cause Long-Term chronic Illness
Children’s Health Defense reports on 9 February 2021

In a new research article published in Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, veteran immunologist J. Bart Classen expresses similar concerns and writes that “RNA-based COVID vaccines have the potential to cause more disease than the epidemic of COVID-19.” Classen warns that the RNA-based vaccine technology could create “new potential mechanisms” of vaccine adverse events that may take years to come to light.

Classen summarises his research article with
The spike protein encoded by the vaccine binds angiotensin
converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), an enzyme which contains zinc
molecules [8]. The binding of spike protein to ACE2 has the
potential to release the zinc molecule, an ion that causes TDP-43
to assume its pathologic prion transformation
[9]”
Referring to the 2001 anthrax threat, Classen concludes: “
“The vaccine could be a bioweapon and even more dangerous than the original infection.”

Vaccine / Immune Enhancement
(Pathogenic Priming)

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#enhancement updated: 15 Dec 2020

Researchers have tried to develop SARS vaccines in the past, resulting in “vaccine enhancement“, where the vaccine makes the disease worse when a vaccinated person is infected with the virus.

5 minute video: “Dr. Fauci and COVID-19 Priorities:
Therapeutics Now or Vaccines Later?” on youtu.be/xCnOqwvPivE

Pfizer COVID vaccine trial shows alarming evidence of pathogenic priming in older adults (11 Dec 2020):
There’s been a serious terminology problem with “immune enhancement” which sounds like something helpful to the immune system.  In fact, it is quite the opposite. The problem is, in reality “disease enhancement”. Disease enhancement now appears to be caused by initial exposure to a pathogen’s proteins, or parts of proteins, which primes the body to autoimmunity. That is “pathogenic priming.” In COVID-19, every protein in the SARS-CoV-2 has at least one epitope that matches human proteins someplace in the human body. About one-third of the epitopes in SARS-CoV-2 virus that match human proteins match immune system proteins
The short-term study excludes any means of detecting whether the initial exposure may play a fundamental root cause role in setting up patients for life-long chronic illness.
More serious adverse events were seen with the second dose.

A 10-fold increase of serious adverse events
on second dose in older adults on second dose, compared to 3.6-fold for those under 55 
[source]

Professor Jonathan Heeney, Head of the Laboratory of Viral Zoonotics at the University of Cambridge, saidIf you make antibodies against the spike, they can end up binding to it and helping the virus invade important immune cells known as monocyte-macrophages. Rather than destroying the virus, these cells can then end up being reprogrammed by the viruses, exacerbating the immune response and making the disease much, much worse than it would otherwise be.”

Children’s Health Defense Team reports on 25 Sept:
38 Covid-19 vaccines are undergoing clinical evaluation. “Oxford and AstraZeneca called a temporary halt to their clinical trials in five countries. The brief hold was prompted by a UK participant’s report, after her second dose of vaccine, of a serious adverse event—a demyelinating condition called transverse myelitis (TM) associated with pain, muscle weakness, paralysis and bowel and bladder problemsTwo-thirds of those who experience TM remain permanently disabled.

AstraZeneca also disclosed that the September pause was actually the second time-out in two months. The first incident, which initially went unpublicized [until it was leaked], occurred in July when another UK participant experienced TM after one dose of vaccine and ended up with a brand-new diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS).”

The Hal Turne Radio Show adds (20 Sept): According to sources who claim to be familiar with the vaccine trials, the second volunteer suddenly started saying “They’ve killed God; I can’t feel God anymore – my Soul is dead” after the vaccine.

The trial’s Patient Information Sheet (11 Sept) writes:
The vaccine tested in the above mentioned research study is “ChAdOx1 nCoV-19” made from a virus (ChAdOx1), which is a weakened version of a common cold virus (adenovirus) from chimpanzees that has been genetically changed. To this virus genes are added that make proteins from the COVID-19 virus called Spike glycoprotein (S).
we are hoping to make the body recognise and develop an immune response to the Spike protein that will help stop the SARS-CoV-2 virus from entering human cells”
We are not sure what dose of vaccine is most likely to be protective”
we don’t know how much of an immune response is needed for protection”
We don’t know which dose, if any, will provide protection.”

The control (comparison) group is NOT a placebo, but MenACWY, a licensed vaccine against group A, C, W and Y meningococcus (MenACWY) as an ‘active control’ vaccine.
MenACWY has been given routinely to teenagers in the UK since 2015 against one of the most common causes of meningitis and sepsis.

“by comparing COVID-19 disease rates, immune responses and post-vaccination symptoms between participants receiving ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 and MenACWY we will get a better understanding of how well ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 is working.” [source]

Covid “Vaccine” Trials Rigged?

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#rigged updated 15 Nov 2020

How COVID-19 Vaccine Trials Are Rigged” (27 October)
“those receiving the vaccine in these trials are young and healthy individuals
“the way trial protocols are designed suggests these vaccines will not have a significant impact on infection rates, hospitalizations or deaths.
The only criterion for a successful COVID-19 vaccine is a reduction of symptoms shared by both COVID-19 and the common cold.
In AstraZeneca’s case, the interim analysis includes 50 vaccine recipients. The vaccine will be a success if 12 or fewer develop symptoms after exposure to SARS-CoV-2, compared to 19 in the 25-person control group.
Three of the vaccine protocols — Moderna, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca — do not require that their vaccine prevent serious disease only that they prevent moderate symptoms which may be as mild as cough, or headache” 
each study intends to complete interim and primary analyses that at most include 164 participants.” [normally trials would range from 30,000 to 60,000!]
Moderna’s success margin is for 13 or less of those 53 to develop symptoms
These trials all clearly focus on eliminating symptoms of COVID-19, and not infections
“AstraZeneca is masking potential side effects is by administering the vaccine along with certain drugs. In one of its study arms, subjects are given acetaminophen every six hours for the first 24 hours after inoculation.”
one-third of people vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine without acetaminophen experienced moderate or severe chills, fatigue, headache, malaise, and/or feverishness...
That’s a lot, in a young and healthy group of people
after the first of two doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine,
80% of Phase 1 participants receiving the 100 microgram (mcg) dose developed systemic side effects.21
After the second dose, 100% reported side effects ranging from fatigue (80%), chills (80%), headache (60%) and myalgia or muscle pain (53%).
“One of the participants in Pfizer’s vaccine trial “woke up with chills, shaking so hard he cracked a tooth after taking the second dose.”
“some COVID-19 vaccine candidates might put certain people at a higher risk of acquiring HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.26,27,28
“the trial designs are such that the vaccines will get a passing grade even if their efficacy is minimal.” [source]

Jon Rappoport reports on 11 Nov:
“According to the protocols for their studies, … a vaccine could meet the companies’ benchmark for success if it lowered the risk of mild Covid-19, but was never shown to reduce moderate or severe forms of the disease, or the risk of hospitalization, admissions to the intensive care unit or death.”
The trials are designed to show effectiveness in preventing mild cases of COVID, which nobody should care about, because mild cases naturally run their course and cause no harm. THERE IS NO NEED FOR A VACCINE THAT PREVENTS MILD CASES.
Jon’s blog refers to an “opinion piece” in the New York Times.

Drug maker GlaxoSmithKline may need to slaughter half a million sharks to harvest squalene, an oil made in shark livers, to make a new line of COVID jabs. Glaxo mixes squalene with a witches’ brew of proprietary surfactants to produce its controversial AS03 vaccine adjuvant. Adjuvants… are associated with a variety of autoimmune diseases. Scientific studies have linked squalene adjuvants to Gulf War syndrome and to a wave of debilitating neurological disorders including epidemics of narcolepsy. [source]
A recent study links squalene to carcinomas.

National Georgaphics reports (5 Nov 2020): Horseshoe crab blood is key to making a COVID-19 vaccine—but the ecosystem may suffer. Conservationists worry the crustaceans, which are vital food sources for many species, will decline in number. These crustaceans’ milky-blue blood provides the only known natural source of limulus amebocyte lysate, a substance that detects a contaminant called endotoxin. If even tiny amounts of endotoxin—a type of bacteria—make their way into vaccines, injectable drugs, or other sterile pharmaceuticals such as artificial knees and hips, the results can be deadly.

Can we trust the vaccine producers?
The “Corporate Research Project” produced
“Rap Sheets” for the these companies:
• Pfizer www.corp-research.org/pfizer
• AstraSeneca www.corp-research.org/astrazeneca

For example Pfizer:
In the area of product safety, Pfizer’s biggest scandal involved defective heart valves sold by its Shiley subsidiary that led to the deaths of more than 100 people… the company had deliberately misled regulators about the hazards. Also on Pfizer’s list of scandals are a 2012 bribery settlement; massive tax avoidance; and lawsuits alleging that during a meningitis epidemic in Nigeria in the 1990s the company tested a risky new drug on children without consent from their parents.
“…scores of patients died from acute liver failure said to be caused by the drug [Rezulin].
In 2008 Pfizer announced that it was setting aside $894 million to settle the lawsuits that had been filed in connection with Bextra and Celebrex.
An article in the Saturday Review in 1957 denounced the company for tactics such as running ads for its antibiotics that displayed the names of doctors who were supposedly endorsing the product but who turned out to be fictitious.
In 1976 Pfizer was one of the many companies that disclosed that it had made questionable payments to foreign government officials. The company said that about $265,000 had been paid to officials in three countries


In 2004 Pfizer’s Warner-Lambert subsidiary agreed to pay $430 million to resolve criminal and civil charges that it paid physicians to prescribe its epilepsy drug Neurontin to patients with ailments for which the medication was not approved.
In 2009 Pfizer agreed to pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil charges relating to the  improper marketing of Bextra and three other medications.
In 2010 Pfizer disclosed that during a six-month period the previous year it had paid $20 million to some 4,500 doctors and other medical professionals for consulting and speaking on the company’s behalf.
Environmental groups in New Jersey have criticized as inadequate a clean-up plan devised by Pfizer and the EPA for the American Cyanamid Superfund site in Bridgewater, which is considered one of the worst toxic waste sites in the country.

Virus Mutations

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#mutations updated: 20 Sept. 2020

A world wide SARS-CoV-2 lineages tracing of about 79 000 samples in over 80 countries since 24 December 2019 shows, that after six months the original Wuhan virus has mutated into 100 lines, named Lineage A and Lineage B.
Johannes Kreis believes, the original virus is not around any more (SARS-CoV2 – in 6 Monaten über 100 verschiedene Virenstämme).
By the end of 2020 we can assume that covid-19 will have mutated into over 200 strands.

This study shows SARS-CoV-2 genome mutations (4 March 2020)
This study shows SARS-CoV-2 genome mutations (4 March 2020)

Another study: 2019 Novel Coronavirus Is Undergoing Active Recombination (4th of March) found that “the SARS-CoV-2 haplotype network has obvious characteristics of single origin from haplotype hap_011: (1) the network is star-like, centralized on the haplotype hap_011; (2) hap_011 has the largest sample size and the majority of the samples are from Hubei province, where the outbreak originated… The single origin of SARS-CoV-2 indicates that persistent animal-to-human transmission is unlikely; otherwise, multiple nodes with the above characteristics should be observed…
This report provides the first evidence for genetic recombination—a new way of evolution besides mutation in SARS-CoV-2.” 

That means: occasionally different virus mutations interact with each other, causing new recombined strands with unknown characteristics.

Covid-19 is an RNA virus, like the flu and measles, famous for their rapid and numerous mutations compared with DNA viruses, such as herpes, smallpox, and human papillomavirus (HPV).
It is their very nature to mutate – more likely into a weaker version (which is observed in August, that despite new “cases” surging, covid death numbers keep falling). 
Mutations commonly appear and die out again quickly.

This means that every vaccine will always be multiple generations behind, and therefore per definition outdated.
Dr. Mark Schleiss, a pediatric infectious disease specialist and investigator with the Institute for Molecular Virology at the University of Minnesota, says‘In the world of RNA viruses, change is the norm. We expect RNA viruses to change frequently. That’s just their nature.’
But possible life long immune system troubles caused by a vaccine may stay with us.

Vaccine Development

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#development updated 15 Feb 2021

A “safe” vaccine needs at least five years to develop.
If the vaccine works with young healthy volunteers (who might not even need it), it is no proof that it will be of any benefit to the oder generation, especially those with underlying conditions.
We might find severe auto-immune side effects of the vaccine, and possibly reduced fertility in the next generation.
Dr. Kendrick in an interviewThey have been trying to get a vaccine for HIV for the last 30 years and they have not managed it yet. There is a reason for that, and it is probably the same reason why they will not get a vaccine for this.”
Shibo Jiang in ‘nature’“I have worked to develop vaccines and treatments for coronaviruses since 2003, when the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak happened… Safety always comes first.
“Standard protocols are essential for safeguarding health. Before allowing use of a COVID-19 vaccine in humans, regulators should evaluate safety with a range of virus strains and in more than one animal model. They should also demand strong preclinical evidence that the experimental vaccines prevent infection.”
“the old saying holds: measure twice, cut once.”

Global analytics firm Clarivate took a look at vaccines from two companies that have entered clinical trials—Moderna and Inovio—and came to a sobering conclusion: It will take at least five years for either vaccine candidate to complete the development process through full regulatory approval. Using a tool it developed called Cortellis Analytics, Clarivate estimated that Moderna currently has just a 5% probability of success with its COVID-19 vaccine mRNA-1273, and that the time window for approval would be 5.2 years. 
The other vaccine candidate that Clarivate evaluated was Inovio’s DNA vaccine INO-4800, which the company moved into clinical testing last week. Clarivate forecasts a probability of success of 15% for INO-4800 and an approval timeline of 5.5 years.
As of April 8 there are 185 companies and research institutes working on 156 COVID-19 medicines and vaccines. [FiercePharma.com, 17 April 2020]

Wuhan peptide 22 and
HERV-K peptide 22 comparison shows similarity and raises fertility concerns
Concerns of fertility are addressed by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg in TheHighWire on 3 December (after one hour into the news), as the covid-19 vaccine targets the proteine 22, which looks very similar to the proteine which is essential for building the placenta boundary when a woman becomes pregnant (syncytin-homologous protein).

Below is a VERY interesting enquiry about the virus used to develop the Pfizer vaccine:

EMAIL EXCHANGE Frances Leader WITH UK MHRA - Exposes the DNA template used does not come from an isolated virus from an infected person
EMAIL EXCHANGE WITH UK MHRA – Exposing the genomic sequence of SARSCov2
First email reponse

UK MHRA CONFESSES THAT THE PFIZER VACCINE mRNA ELEMENT IS A COMPUTER GENERATED GENOMIC SEQUENCE AMPLIFIED FROM A RNA FRAGMENT FOUND IN ONE EXPERIMENTAL STUDY FROM WUHAN (Feb 2020)

Frances Leader writes in her HIVE BLOG:
“When I read the Wuhan study in Feb 2020 I was mortified by the monkey kidney & foetal cell-lines which were used as a “culture” before rt-PCR amplification. Isolation was never satisfactory at any stage thereafter. I honestly felt sick.
The genome sequence was computed from this.
I set about proving that the vaccine has been created from a computer generated genomic sequence & not one isolated from an infected person, either in Wuhan or anywhere else in the world since.”

The DNA template (acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2,GenBank: MN9089473) was generated via a combination of gene synthesis and recombinant DNA technology [MHRA]

EMAIL EXCHANGE Frances Leader WITH UK MHRA - Exposes the genomic sequence of SARSCov2 DNA template
EMAIL EXCHANGE WITH UK MHRA – Exposing the genomic sequence of SARSCov2
Second email response

By the time the Covid-19 vaccine was rolled out from December 2020, the actual virus SARS-CoV-2 has become insignificant and not virulent any more, and the majority of the population has already gained natural immunity.

Interesting timing of previous vaccine introductions:

the timing of vaccine introduction for whooping cough, diphteria, measles and polio shows it was introduced after the cases went right down
An old strategy: when “it is all over”, a vaccine is introduced,
and we might be told the vaccine “eradicated” the disease.

Early Safety Warnings

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#warnings updated 15 Oct 2020

Children’s Health Defense reports: The coronavirus vaccine producer ‘Moderna’ chose Haydon (like the other volunteers) for the study because of the robust good health. He was among the 15 volunteers in the high dose group. Within 45 days, three of these—a shocking 20%—experienced “serious” adverse events according to Moderna’s press release meaning they required hospitalization or medical intervention. Less than 12 hours after vaccination, Hayden suffered muscle aches, vomiting, spiked a 103.2 degree fever and lost consciousness. 

Dr. Mercola writes in an analysis on 9 October:
“Offit warns there could be problems with Moderna’s and BioNTech’s messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines because they have extraordinary shipping and handling needs that include using dry ice. “We’ve never done that before in this country,” he told MarketWatch.15 “Never.”

Below is a STRONG warning what could happen if people get a flu vaccine AND a second vaccine (like the coronavirus vaccine) in the same season: the deaths rate could rise significantly:

diagram shows Flu vaccine deaths according to the US VAERS spiked in 2010 when a second vaccine against Swine Flu was given.
Flu vaccine deaths according to the US VAERS spiked in 2010
when a second vaccine against Swine Flu was given.
This is a warning what is likely to happen if people who got the flu shot
will receive an additional vaccine against coronavirus.
chart presented by Brian Hooker, CDC whistle blower

Here is the transcript of an experts discussion about the coronavirus vaccine (developed by Moderna, Bill Gates’ favoured company). Some quotes:
This is an experimental technology that has never been done before in history. What is does, it injects a snippet of the virus that carries a genetic code in its RNA that is designed to alter the DNA, the code in every cell in your body to get your body to naturally start producing those antigens.”
“It is genetic engineering. It has been condemned by the Geneva Statement because those genetic changes will survive in your sperm and they will live in your children or in your ovaries.”
“Here’s what happened. After the SARS epidemic in 2002…SARS was a kind of coronavirus. they developed about thirty different vaccines, and they chose the four most promising models. They tested them on ferrets which are the animal that is most analogous to human reaction to upper respiratory infection. They’re very similar to humans. They’re very predictive of what’s going to happen in human beings.”
When those ferrets were later exposed to the wild virus, they all had body wide inflammation in all their organs, and they died.”

Is This The End?

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#end updated 28 Feb 2021

Where might this all end? 
Here is a thought provoking article:
Will New COVID Vaccine Make You Transhuman? Some quotes:

The goal of the transhumanist movement, or “Human 2.0”, is to transcend biology into technology, to meld human biology with technology and artificial intelligence

Right now, today, we may be standing at the literal crossroads of transhumanism, thanks to the fast approaching release of one or more mRNA COVID-19 vaccines

COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are designed to instruct your cells to make the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. It does this through a process called transfection, which is also used to create genetically engineered organisms

Transfection can have either temporary or permanent effects on the genome, and it is unclear how the COVID-19 vaccines may affect the human genome long-term

In 2019, researchers discovered the 2009 pandemic swine flu vaccine Pandemrix caused narcolepsy by affecting a non-coding RNA gene that regulates the production of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, a protein that plays an important role in neuronal survival. If a conventional vaccine can have genetic effects, the risk of mRNA vaccines having genetic effects is bound to be even greater.

Thank you for having read so far. Let us remember:
there is ALWAYS hope. If you are worried about infertility (spike S protein and placenta discussion) after being vaccinated:
here is proof that unexpected things can happen:
The Pfizer mRNA vaccine resulted in TWO pregnancies!

Pfizer vaccine adverse effect: 
2 pregnancies and 5 spontaneous abortions by 31 January 2021
This is probably not an immaculate conception – but more likely a result of a failure of the anti baby pill. Screen shot mRNA PfizerBioNTech analysis print cumulative total by 31 January 2021

Keep your humour…

Comment by HealthTruth.info

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#comment posted 5 March 2021

Any covid vaccine (or “gene therapy”) has a risk.
How high that is, we don’t know; it can take many months and years
until side effects will show. Are we walking into a genetic mine field, reprogramming human body cells?
Will it alter our genetic figerprint?
Will our very own unique DNA change?
Might that alter our personality?
Could it be that our subtle “vibration” changes?
Is there a possibility of a disconnection between body and soul?
Will it affect fertility – and the health of the next generation?
We will see. Dr. Shery Tenpenny estimates that many will die half a year after the shot.
The real tragedy is not that some old and frail people or those who have ruined their health and their immune system will die prematurely;
they had their lives.
The real danger for the survival of the human race arises, if young people and children, the next generation, our hope and future might get injected.
On a sinking ship it is always:”women and children first!”
No fertile man, woman or child should get “the vaccine”.

What’s the choice, if not “the vaccine”?
Answer: We Need To Focus On The Immune System, which kept the human race alive, healthy and strong for millenia.
What about covid?
The danger of dying with covid-19 symptoms has ben highly exaggerated. Death tolls in 2020 were in the range of previous years; the death labels and statistics were manipulated spread via the main stream media, as shown in Did We Get It All Wrong Fighting The Virus?
Chances of getting covid-19 symptoms and dying from them are actually very low.
I can’t believe this.”
Here are some steps helping you to challenge your belief:
1) Make an experiment and stop watching ANY TV or radio programme for a week – and do NOT read ANY “news”paper.
Connect with nature, animals and real people instead.
2) Study health and healthy living. Find sources not directly or indirectly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry.
3) Read about psychological ways of manipulation

The biggest challenge in 2021 is to be and stay human.
Bless you!

UK Covid Vaccines Data ARCHIVE

HealthTruth.info/covid-vaccine#archive updated 25 June 2021

UK Yellow Card reports published Thu 8 April
Data by 28-Mar TOTAL reports / reactions / fatalities
AstraZeneca: 116 162 / 440871 / 472
[=> 51 deaths in the last week & 3.7 mio vaccinated]
Pfizer: 43491 / 124371 / 302
[=> 19 deaths in one week & 0.1 mio were vaccinated
+ 3.7 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer]
unspecified: 418 / 1367 / 12
[ => 3 deaths last week]
UK total vaccine fatalities reported: 786
[=> 73 deaths in the last week]
“In the week since the previous summary for 21 March 2021 we have received a further 2,608 Yllow Cards for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 16,345 for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine
and 39 where the brand was not specified. A higher number of doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine were administered in the last week than the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.”

These weekly data updates of the UK government + HealthTruth.info analysis are archived below. On request HealthTruth.info can email you the pdf files of Yellow Card analysis prints of a requested data lock date for data mining.

“In the week since the previous summary for 21 March 2021 we have received a further 2,608 Yllow Cards for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, 16,345 for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine
and 39 where the brand was not specified. A higher number of doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine were administered in the last week than the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.”

By 11 March, about 300 000 adverse “reactions” and 508 fatalities were listed in the UK Yellow Card reports after the covid vaccines.

UPDATE 7 March 2021

The UK government reports:
For both vaccines the overall reporting rate is around
3 to 6 Yellow Cards per 1,000 doses administered.

Pfizer: 237 (+10) dead 100,809 reactions
AstraZeneca: 289 (+14) dead 228,337 reactions
unspecified: 8 (+2) dead 917 reactions
Total 554 (+46) dead by 7 March 2021
Total reactions: 330,063
 [by 7 March (1-7 March week)]

The numbers above also show that AstraZeneca side effects are a multitude more frequent than those of the Pfizer vaccine.
An estimated 10.9 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 11.7 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine, and around one million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine had been administered by 7 March 2021.

It looks like the uptake of the 1st shot is slowing down.

UPDATE 28 February 2021

The UK government reports33,207 Yellow Cards have been reported for the Pfizer/BioNTech54,180 have been reported for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine, and 251 have been reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified.
For both vaccines the overall reporting rate is around
3 to 6 Yellow Cards per 1,000 doses administered.

Total Pfizer deaths227(+15) – AstraZeneca: 275 (+31)
(+1.3 mio Pf vaccinated) – (+1.3 mio AZ vaccinated)
unspecified brand: 6 (+0)
Total reported deaths: 508 (+48) in week 21-28 Feb 2021
Twice as many deaths with AstraZeneca this week.

The above deaths are just the tip of the iceberg:
less than 1% of adverse reactions are reported.
At least 20,275,451 people have received their first vaccination in the UK by week ending 28 February 2021, with 815,816 second doses administered.
An analysis of the most common vaccine side effects, reveals:

The report rate in the UK population is less than 1%:

Comparing side effects of Pfizer and AstraZeneca covid vaccine trials with UK Yellow Card reports of adverse reactions 28 February 2021
The comparison of side effects recorded in the vaccine trials with those reported in the UK YellowCard Scheme by 28 February 2021 reveal:
1) AstraZeneca shows most side effects – many more than the Pfizer vaccine
2) Far less than 1% of post vaccine side effects are reported in the Yellow Card scheme

The numbers above also show that AstraZeneca side effects are a multitude more frequent than those of the Pfizer vaccine.

An estimated 10.7 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 9.7 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine, had been administered, and around 0.8 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, had been administered.
Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine reports include a total of 94,809 reactions
AstraZeneca vaccine reports include a total of 201,622 reactions

“In the week since the previous summary for 21 February 2021 the MHRA have received a further 3,482 Yellow Cards for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and 11,263 for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine” = 3x more for AstraZeneca.
30-40% of healthy trial volunteers reported “myalgia” – that should be 3-4 million of the UK population.
More than twice as many AstraZeneca adverse total reactions
All above data are from the UK government analysis prints for
Oxford/AstraZeneca & mRNA PfizerBioNTech and MHRA

Update UK data 21 February

4 March: the UK government published the latest cumulative total numbers of reactions and fatalities HERE.

Update 3rd Feb week 14-21 Feb Covid-19 vaccines:
Pfizer: 15 deaths + 7,972 reactions
, 1.1mio vaccinated
AstraZ: 39 deaths + 43,012 reactions, 1.5mio vaccinated
Unspecified vaccine: 0 deaths + 191 reactions
= 54 deaths + 51,175 reactions in one week.
– – – – –
Cumulative TOTAL: 460 UK deaths 
243,612 reactions by 21 Feb 2021

AstraZeneca244 deaths + 157,637 reactions.
Unspecified vaccine: 4 deaths + 796 reactions
[source: UK data Drug Analysis Print Yellow Card]

The REAL numbers are probably more than 20x higher as explained above.
The media report deaths after the covid-19 jab usually as “coincidental” – or they attribute deaths to a “covid outbreak” (positive PCR test result).
The above week (14-21 February) data is the difference between totals between the 14 Feb (see below) and 21 Feb cumulative totals.

As of 21 February, an estimated
9.4 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and
8.4 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine, had been administered, and around 0.6 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, had been administered [source: UK gov]

Data Analysis Deaths in the week 14-21 February 2021:
Pfizer: 1.1mio / 15 deaths = 1 death / 73,333 vaccinated
AstraZ: 1.5mio/39 deaths = 1 death / 38,461.5 vaccinated
[deaths related to the vaccines given in the same week]
You are nearly twice as likely to die after the AstraZeneca vaccine than after the shot from Pfizer.

UK data up to 14 February 2021

Update 2nd week 8-14 Feb Covid-19 vaccines:
AstraZeneca: 55 deaths
 + 40 742 reactions.
Pfizer: 24 deaths + 6 893 reactions.
Unspecified vaccine: 4 deaths + 605 reactions
= 83 deaths in the 2nd February week.

Cumulative total = 406 UK deaths by 14 Feb
[UK data Drug Analysis Yellow Card]

17,582,121 people have received their first vaccination in UK by week ending 14 February 2021, with 615,148 second doses administered

(8.3 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine
and 6.9 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine), had been administered, and around 0.6 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, had been administered”
Coronavirus vaccine – weekly summary of Yellow Card reporting

Analysis 2 weeks 1-14 February 2021
Pfizer: 1.7mio/54 deaths = 1 death / 31,481 vaccinated
AstraZ: 3.9mio/115 deaths = 1 death/33,913 vaccinated
[deaths related to the vaccines given in the same 2 weeks]

UK Data 1st February Week 2021

UPDATE in the first February week: alone, there were
30 deaths + 10 700 “reactions” recorded after the Pfizer vaccine
60 deaths and 31 234 “reactions” after the AstraZeneca shot.
That is 90 deaths in ONE week (1-7 Feb 2021).
Total UK deaths: 173 + 150 = 323 Pfizer AstraZeneca combined
Totsl UK ‘reactions’: 70 314+73 883=144 197 for both vaccines.
Consider: less than 10% of vaccine related incidents are reported.

Update from the 1-7 February 2021 UK Drug Analysis Print with increased totals
showing Pfizer: 173 deaths (+30) and 70 314 “Reactions” (+10 700 in one week)
AstraZeneca: 150 deaths (+ 60) and 73 883 “Reactions” (+31 234 in one week)
Please note: the Yellow card deaths and reactions only show totals since the count began. By subtracting the totals from 31 January, we get the numbers for one week.

UK Data 31 January 2021

As of 31 January, an estimated 6.6 million first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine and 3 million doses of the Oxford University/AstraZeneca viral vector vaccine had been administered in the UK, and around 0.5 million second doses, mostly the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
From the UK government weekly summary of Yellow Card reporting, 9 Dec 2020 to 31 January 2021:
As of 31 January 2021, for the UK:
• “20,319 Yellow Cards have been reported for the Pfizer / BioNTech
• 11,748 have been reported for the Oxford University / AstraZeneca vaccine
• 72 have been reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified

Events with fatal outcome:
“The MHRA has received 143 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination90 reports for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine.”
Anaphylaxis:
“The MHRA has received 130 UK spontaneous adverse reactions associated with anaphylaxis or anaphylactoid reactions with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination…
and 30 reports of anaphylaxis have been received for the COVID-19 Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine.”
Bell’s Palsy:

AstraZeneca analysis print Totals (4 – 31 Jan 2021 (1st 27 days)
The above screenshot shows data until 31 January (submitted by 10 Feb)

The following calculation is for 31 January 2021:
Analysis Pfizer: 6.6 million first vaccines administered
6,600 000 / 143 deaths = one death per 46,153 people
59 614 reactions / 143 deaths = one death each 416.88 reactions
143 deaths / 52 days = one vaccine death every 2.75 days
Analysis AstraZeneca: 3 million first vaccines administered
3,000 000 / 90 deaths = one death per 33,333 people
42 649 reactions / 90 deaths = one death each 473.88 reactions
90 deaths / 27 days = one vaccine death every 3.33 days

In the last decades, less than 10% of vaccine reactions and fatalities have been reported with the Yellow Card scheme – nearly always they are considered “coincidental”, but not causal [BMJ].
A study found, that in the US “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System” VAERS “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported
So the real vaccine adverse effects and deaths will be likely to be more than 20 times higher.
Vaccine authorities don’t really want to know about adverse effects.
QUESTION: are UK vaccine deaths after day 8 included?

Covid-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-COV-2.
REMINDER:
the problem is NOT any coronavirus,
but the human immune system not functioning properly

Introduction:

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#summary updated 9 March

Below is a road map how to steer healthy through the next virus season, listing the logical changes we need to make after we analysed all we’ve got wrong so far.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence
of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]

HERE is a video by Canadian doctors, explaining in less than 12 minutes why we do NOT need to fear SARS-CoV-2 and can have more trust in our immune system:

Canadian doctors from CanadaHealthAlliance.org created this short video: bitchute.com/video/nQgq0BxXfZ4f/

In case of doubt or confusion: don’t do anything which could make you ill, and follow the INDEPENDENT science, and double check dependent government advisers for industry bias.
While the “cases” go up, people don’t die any more from covid-19.

Cases are currently 90% false positives, the virus has mutated, and as with SARS or MERS or any yearly flu, the Herd Immunity Threshold HIT was reached in April.
We can safely assume there will be no “second wave” (unless people make themselves ill by not looking after their immune system). Read more below.

The “Second Wave” is just the winter virus season

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#no-second-wave updated: 6 December 2020

Dr. Mike Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory, explains everything on rumble.com/vbfcsj-dr.-mike-yeadon-pfizers-former-vice-president-and-chief-scie ntist-for-aller.html

The Daily Mail UK reports on 22 Nov: Covid UK: Facts about the risks, the death rate, and NHS capacity: “the number of Covid-19 deaths is significantly lower than the peak back in April. Latest ONS estimate shows that in the week ending November 14, new infections were already levelling off “

There will be no 2nd wave of Coronavirus.
There is no research literature
that underscores the belief in a second wave
.
[Dr Mike Yeadon,
former chief scientific adviser of Pfizer]

Speaking on the Julia Hartley-Brewer breakfast show on Talk Radio, Dr Mike Yeadon, former chief scientific adviser of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (allergy and respiratory research department), has predicted there will be no 2nd wave of Coronavirus. He points out, that the previous SARS and MERS viruses only came once, no second wave. He also said the current pcr testing brings up 90% false positives. He said he was “going to challenge the Government to cite the research literature that underscores their belief in a second wave… such literature does not exist.” If he is right then the actions of the government will be proved to be unnecessary.

cases versus deaths Spain and UK
“Spain is ahead of the UK”, showing many (mostly asymptomatic and false) positive “cases” – and no deaths. There is NOTHING to panic about.
Spain is some weeks ahead of the UK and shows a HUGE spike of so called “cases”, but no more deaths than seasonal. source: worldometers
UK on 21 October: the so called “cases” are 4x higher than during the April peak
But the deaths are 5x lower (slight number increase as usuallyin autumn)
[source: worldometers.info

It can however be expected, that the huge backlog of missed hospital appointments due to the first lockdown will lead to an increase in hospital admissions. The virus fear stress will result in lowered immunity and increased illness in the population.
As a positive pcr test result at the (mandatory) test at hospital admissions will override other causes of death if the patient should die within 28 days after being tested positive, there is a guearanteed number of covid deaths in the future. See more in the previous article in the Covid Deaths Statistics chapter.

Coronaviruses normally peak from January to March in the northern hemisphere
(see also Evidence that Coronavirus Lockdown was not necessary).

It is a well-known fact that in every “flu wave”, 7-15% of acute respiratory illnesses (ARI) come along with coronaviruses (Glasgow study) with no clinical significance. It is just another name for acute respiratory illnesses (ARI), which as every year put 30% to 70% of all people in our countries more or less out of action for a week or two every winter.
According to a prospective article ARI-virus monitoring in Glasgow from 2005 to 2013, the most common pathogens of acute respiratory diseases were: 1. rhinoviruses, 2. influenza A viruses, 3. influenza B viruses, 4. RS viruses and 5. coronaviruses.”

If we remove any of these viruses, other pathogens will take the place.[www.wodarg.com].
COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2) can cause a cytokine storm of overzealous immune responses, that generate so much cytokine secretion (hypercytokinesis), that it spills over into the lungs.

This video clearly explains everything: data, statistics, virus seasons and why the post pandemic should be called endemic. Link: youtu.be/7wifZ9oBrZE

Common cold could be protecting you from Covid-19:
You may have cursed that cold you had last winter—but it could be protecting you against Covid-19.
Your immune response may have been just a dress rehearsal for the more virulent SARS-COV-2 virus that causes Covid-19. A cold, another coronas virus, produces memory cells—known as B cells—that know how to respond if you encounter the Covid virus.
People recovering from Covid-19 have a pre-existing pool of memory B cells that rapidly produce antibodies, say researchers from the University of Rochester Medical Center. Memory B cells can detect pathogens and create antibodies to destroy them.
The protection is long-lasting and may even protect you for the rest of your life. Once infected by a virus, another from the same family will trigger a much faster response and could even clear an infection before it takes hold.
The fact that most of us have had a cold could also explain why so many people with Covid-19 are asymptomatic, that is, have no symptoms.
The researchers analysed blood samples from 26 people recovering from mild to moderate Covid-19 and compared them with 21 healthy donors whose samples had been collected up to 10 years ago. They measured levels of memory B cells and antibodies that target proteins that are common in all coronaviruses, such as Covid, SARS, MERS, and the common cold. [from the original study]

The best support for our immune system is:
• do everything that is good for you and your immune system
• don’t do anything which is bad for your health

The worldometer statistic shows, (7 October), that 96+% of ‘cases’ have recovered from COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 and the deaths with coronavirus keep dropping. Keep in mind, that about 19 out of 20 deaths were caused by underlying conditions.
The UK withholds the huge number of recovered cases.

Here is a VERY good video, clearly explaining the virus statistics, why people die or not, and how to see all in context:

No Asymptomatic Covid-19 Spread

Not a single transmission of Coronavirus from a person without symptoms. The research paper also indicates that “virulence of SARS-CoV-2 virus may be weakening over time”.
“If asymptomatic transmission is not happening,… then all of the current lock-down regulations, mask wearing requirements and social distancing rules/decrees are based on a complete fallacy of false assumptions.”

Freedom not Lockdown to stay Healthy

Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence
of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]
Which of the two lions you think is more healthy?

Safety has a price. Freedom is the basis of health and happiness.

WHO: we appeal to all world leaders:
stop using lockdown as your primary control method.
The only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty.
[Dr. David Nabarro, 11 October 2020]

News.com.au reports on 11 Oct: WHO: “we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method.
Develop better systems for doing it. Work together and learn from each other.
Dr. David Nabarro also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved.
“we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”
Experience shows: you can’t control a virus – but the population.

A number of health experts from all over the world came together calling for an end to coronavirus lockdowns earlier this week.
They created a petition, called the Great Barrington Declaration,
which said that lockdowns were doing “irreparable damage.”
[ By 11 October, the Great Barrington Declaration, was signed by
7,447 Medical & Public Health Scientists,
17,087 Medical Practitioners and
259,458 general public ]

The WorldDoctorsAlliance.com takes a more radical approach
and had 7487 signatories by 17 October.

Reality versus prediction models…

In the previous article “We’ve got it all wrong fighting the virus” we learned that lockdown loneliness making us ill and lockdown kills.

Long periods of lockdown could weaken the immune system and leave people more vulnerable to dangerous viruses and pandemics”, Oxford epidemiologist Prof Sunetra Gupta warns. Intense social distancing could leave people unexposed to germs and not develop defences against new viruses. She added that ‘if we return to the point where we have no exposure’ society would be ‘like clumps of trees waiting to be set ablaze‘. ”

Safety comes with a price to pay…

Natural Immunity & T Cell Memory

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#natural-immunity – updated 18 January 2021

Summary:
we have robust, broad and highly functional memory T cell responses preventing recurrent episodes of severe COVID-19 or other coronavirus mutations.
They identify and destroy infected cells and inform B cells about how to craft new virus-targeting antibodies.
T cell memory lasts at least 17 years, possibly life long.

Covid infection shown to provide as much immunity as vaccines [Financial Times, 14 January 2021]
People who have already contracted coronavirus are as protected against reinfection as those who have received the best Covid-19 vaccines, according to a survey of 20,000 UK healthcare workers, the largest study in the world so far. Public Health England regularly tested two matched groups of volunteers between June and November — 6,000 health workers who had previously been infected with coronavirus and 14,000 who had not.
A comparison of infections in the two groups, described in preliminary results released on Thursday, found that prior infection provided at least 83 per cent protection against reinfection.
It gave better than 94 per cent protection against symptomatic Covid-19, matching the figures for the most effective Covid-19 vaccines.
Natural infection looks as good as a vaccine, which is very good news for the population” Susan Hopkins, PHE senior medical adviser said.
People who had recovered from Covid-19 were less likely to transmit the virus to others unknowingly, because natural infection appeared to provide about 75 per cent protection against asymptomatic reinfection.
Eleanor Riley, professor of virology at the University of Edinburgh, said: “If you believe you already had the disease and are protected, you can be reassured it is highly unlikely you will develop severe infection”
[STUDY ARTICLE preprint 18 Dec 2020:
SIREN protocol: Impact of detectable anti-SARS-CoV-2 on the subsequent incidence of COVID-19 in 100,000 healthcare workers: do antibody positive healthcare workers have less reinfection than antibody negative healthcare workers?“]

After being infected with coronavirus, people become immune.
“A number of reported cases of coronavirus patients relapsing after overcoming the disease were actually due to testing failures, South Korean scientists say… the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test results for the suspected relapsed patients were false positives. Researchers at the South Korean centre for disease control and prevention (CDC) now say it is impossible for the COVID-19 virus to reactivate in human bodies. The CDC added that unlike other viruses,… the coronavirus stays outside of the host cell’s nucleus.”
“This means it does not cause chronic infection or recurrence,” explained Dr Oh Myoung-don, the head of the South Korea’s CDC committee. 01/05/2020

“A government cannot stop a virus.
What stops a virus is natural immunity.
It’s impossible to stop a virus by government decree.”
[Professor Yoram Lass, former Israeli Health Ministry chief]

On 28 August Neoscope reports: DOCTORS CONFIRM FOR FIRST TIME THAT PATIENT CAUGHT COVID TWICE: A new study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases today reports that a 33-year-old man showed mild symptoms the first time he was infected, and no symptoms the second time. The patient was infected by two genetically different strains of the coronavirus. “Our results prove that his second infection is caused by a new virus that he acquired recently rather than prolonged viral shedding,” Kelvin Kai-Wang To, clinical microbiologist at the University of Hong Kong, said in the statement. “This is a textbook example of how immunity should work,” Yale School of Medicine professor Akiko Iwasaki, wrote in a Monday tweet. “While immunity was not enough to block reinfection, it protected the person from disease.”

We now have evidence that everyone
develops long-term coronavirus immunity after infection

The study: “Robust T cell immunity in convalescent individuals with asymptomatic or mild COVID-19” (14 August)
“SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells were detectable in antibody-seronegative exposed family members and convalescent individuals with a history of asymptomatic and mild COVID-19. Our collective dataset shows that SARS-CoV-2 elicits robust, broad and highly functional memory T cell responses, suggesting that natural exposure or infection may prevent recurrent episodes of severe COVID-19″.

The “Business Insider” comments on this: “The new finding is strong evidence that all patients likely develop long-term immunity
Memory T cells are an especially key type, since they identify and destroy infected cells and inform B cells about how to craft new virus-targeting antibodies. They can stick around for years, while antibody levels drop following an infection.”

The New York Times reports on 16 August: Scientists See Signs of Lasting Immunity to Covid-19, Even After Mild Infections
“Scientists who have been monitoring immune responses to the virus are now starting to see encouraging signs of strong, lasting immunity, even in people who developed only mild symptoms of Covid-19, a flurry of new studies suggests. Disease-fighting antibodies, as well as immune cells called B cells and T cells that are capable of recognizing the virus, appear to persist months after infections have resolved… the body retains a battalion of longer-lived B cells that can churn out virus-fighting antibodies en masse, should they prove useful again.”

The best times to gain immunity for coronavirus
are summer or autumn, before the flu season.
This way you do not become a burden
for the NHS hospitals
AND you become a protector of the vulnerable
by being immune in the winter.

Immunological research has revealed that serological (i.e. blood) antibody studies detect at most 20% of infections, as most people neutralize the coronavirus with their mucosal or cellular immune system without even needing to develop (permanent) antibodies in the blood

This pie chart explains the findings :
no antibodies in the blood, but immunity
(screeenshot from an amazing scientific immunity lecture by Creon Levit, Chief Scientist of Planet Labs (22 June)
The percentage of an unexposed population is certain to be

60% of people are naturally RESISTANT to SARS-COV2.
Sars-Cov-2-specific antibodies only appear in the most severe cases, about 1 out of 5.
That means: Sars-Cov-2 is five times less deadly than currently assumed [off-guardian.org/2020/06/12/study-80] – and:
the number of people who have gained immunity is five times higher than positive blood test results show.

THIS explains, why the Immunity Threshold HIT (see chapter below) causing the DECREASE of infections after the peak period only needs 10 – 20% of the population in addition to the 50+% who are already ‘naturally’ resistant.

A cold, another coronas virus, produces memory cells—known as B cells—that know how to respond if you encounter the Covid virus.
People recovering from Covid-19 have a pre-existing pool of memory B cells that rapidly produce antibodies. Memory B cells can detect pathogens and create antibodies to destroy them.

The protection is long-lasting and may even protect you for the rest of your life. Once infected by a virus, another from the same family will trigger a much faster response and could even clear an infection before it takes hold.

Herd Immunity Threshold ‘HIT’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#HIT – updated 15 April 2021

So it seems Britain has reached the herd immunity, and we do not need to fear any more virus transmissions nor outbreaks, as “the virus” has no chance to go rampant any more:

Modelling by University College London (UCL) suggests that 73.4 per cent of the population will have protection against Covid by April 12, 2021 – by Mail Online

The Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT) defines the percentage of the population that needs to be immune to reverse epidemic growth and prevent future waves.
medRxiv published an article on 21 May 2020, stating:
“While herd immunity is expected to require 60-70% of a homogeneous population to be immune given an R0 between 2.5 and 3, these percentages drop to the range 10-20% for CVs between 2 and 4.”

Herd Immunity Threshold (HIT)
for SARS-CoV-2 transmission
in heterogeneous populations

can be as low as 10-20%

This suggests, we don’t need to panic to just get over any next virus wave naturally by letting the virus come and go in the usual bell-shaped curve.

Like other respiratotry diseases, including the 2003 SARS epidemic, the virus remains only about two months in any given population, yet the peak incidence and the lethality can vary.

Please notice: Dr. Knut Wittkowski does not claim
there would be no casualties at all.

Any temporary advantage from mitigation comes at the expense of lower population immunity and higher cumulative deaths
“It is herd immunity that stops the spread of an infectious disease, so in general, one would want to let the epidemic initially run its natural course (or even accelerate it, as people have traditionally done with “measles parties”) to build immunity as fast as possible” [Dr. Wittkowski, 28 March 2020, from: researchgate.net]

Fig 1: SIR Model of SARS. Number of susceptible (blue), infectious (red), and resistant (green) people after a population of 10,000,000 susceptible people is exposed to 20 subjects infected carrying a novel virus. Assumptions: R0 =2.2, infectious period = 7 days
Covid recovered cases versus deaths in the US in %
This worldometer graph confirms the SIR Model

The % rate of deaths (orange line) is going down to 6% in the US, while the recovered / discharged from hospital cases (green line) goes up to 94%, confirming the herd immunity threshold model explained above. Source:
worldometer 4 Aug 2020
The UK has been hiding the recovered cases number.

When we use a different model, the situation looks MUCH better and is more likely to reflect reality.
The study led by Dr Gabriela Gomes, a mathematician at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Strathclyde.
If the virus spreads more rampantly among the most socially active group, the level of immunity they build up could protect people in the less active groups.

Natural herd immunity against Covid-19 could develop from just 10% of the population getting infected, not the 60%
predicted from a vaccine”

The ‘herd immunity threshold’ (HIT) can be estimated from the basic reproduction rate of the epidemic, R0 – a measure of how many people, on average, each infected individual infects. Standard simple compartmental models of epidemic growth imply that the HIT equals {1 – 1/R0}. Once the HIT is passed, the rate of new infections starts to decline, which should ensure that health systems will not thereafter be overwhelmed and makes it more practicable to take steps to eliminate the disease.
A recent paper (Gomes et al.[7]) shows that variation between individuals in their susceptibility to infection and their propensity to infect others can cause the HIT to be much lower than it is in a homogeneous population.
The Swedish public health authority estimated that 17% of the Stockholm population would have been infected by 11 April, rising to 25% by 1 May 2020.[5] Yet recorded new cases had stopped increasing by 11 April, as had net hospital admissions,[6] and both measures have fallen significantly since. That pattern indicates that the HIT had been reached by 11April, at which point only 17% of the population appear to have been infected.
[Why herd immunity to COVID-19 is reached much earlier than thought]

Dr. Scott W. Atlas, senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution: “Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, are prolonging the problem.” Therefore: “protect the known vulnerable, self-isolate the mildly sick and open most workplaces and small businesses with some prudent large-group precautions.
“This would allow the essential socialising to generate immunity among those with minimal risk of serious consequence, while saving lives, preventing overcrowding of hospitals and limiting the enormous harms compounded by continued total isolation,” [www.wnd.com April 2020]

Bacteria, Germs and Viruses

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#bacteria

Viruses are essential for our health.
Scientists have determined that there are approximately:
• 30 trillion cells in the average size human body
• 40 trillion bacteria on and in the human body
• 380 trillion viruses on and in the human body

There are thousands of species of bacteria and viruses that compete for space and control of our tissues, made up of beneficial players, opportunists and harmful actors. These organisms are significantly influenced by how we live, exercise, sleep, what we eat and drink and these lifestyle factors even effect how our genes are expressed. We call all these healthy organisms symbiotic, because we both benefit from each other. In fact, we could not survive without them!

Beneficial bacteria are the housekeepers and defenders of our gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract. They produce B-vitamins, brain signalling molecules like serotonin (the antidepressant “brain” hormone—about 80% of it is made in the gut), short chain fatty acids that feed and maintain the cells lining our G.I. tract.

share love, geerms, viruses & immunity

Bacteria regulate pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines (cell signalling protein molecules) to prevent autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and numerous other beneficial activities. Healthy bacteria also live in our mouths, on our skin, and in all the nooks and crannies of our body. They all have vital housekeeping chores in those places. The strength of the health and population numbers of our beneficial bacteria are the first line of defence of our entire immune system. It is estimated that 70% of our immune system resides in the Gut
[from “Why Has Everyone Seemingly Forgotten How the Immune System Works?“]

Bacteria, Germs, fungi and viruses are part of us. Humans first make contact with theirs in the birth canal. From that moment forward, microbes help bolster our immune systems, helping our bodies learn to live with viral diseases that enter our bloodstream. They boost the immune system, protect us from auto-immune diseases, keep us slim, detoxify and may fight off stress and keep babies healthy.

The World Health Organization has actually advised against trying to kill SARS-CoV-2 with disinfectants, both outdoors or across large indoor spaces, stating it may do more harm than good.

We need to connect with nature, get our hands dirty in good soil, have physical contact with animals and other humans and expose our immune system to all those to “keep it fit”.

Daycares in Finland Built a ‘Forest Floor’, And It Changed Children’s Immune Systems
“When daycare workers in Finland rolled out a lawn, planted forest undergrowth such as dwarf heather and blueberries, and allowed children to care for crops in planter boxes, the diversity of microbes in the guts and on the skin of young kids appeared healthier in a very short space of time.” 
“Compared to other city kids who play in standard urban daycares with yards of pavement, tile and gravel, 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds at these greened-up daycare centres in Finland showed increased T-cells and other important immune markers in their blood within 28 days. “
Prior research has shown early exposure to green space is somehow linked to a well-functioning immune system.”

“There are more bacteria in your gut than there are stars in our galaxy – most of them protect us and make us who we are.”
Overuse of antibiotics and antiseptic cleaners is impacting our ability to maintain a balance of healthy microbes in our bodies and environments.
Studies continue to prove that harmful species will exploit areas with too few good bacteria to fight back. Sterility should not be our goal.

Simply avoiding any seasonal virus (at a high cost for society, economy and psychological trauma) makes no sense, as it will return in the next season. What would make sense is to strengthen our immune system, and achieve a herd immunity in the young and healthy population, which will protect the old and infirm and those who are immune system compromised.

Why don’t we stop fighting this virus and make friends with coronavirus instead?
Waging war against a virus is like waging war against ourselves.

Keeping a pet or working with animals strengthens the immune system
According to Dr. Wolfgang Wodard, there is a “regularly recurring presence of corona viruses in dogs, cats, pigs, mice, bats and in humans”.
Dogs, who come with their own set of allergy-suppressing microbes, are the most beneficial to a household’s microbial health, helping to strengthen the immune systems of its children.” [NY Post]

school age children more likely to be hit by lightening than die of coronavirus
Telegraph headline 9 June 2020

School age children more likely to be hit by lightning than die of coronavirus
Many media reports of young and healthy people dying from Covid19 turned out to be false: many of these young people either did not die from Covid-19, they had already been seriously ill (e.g. from undiagnosed leukaemia), or they were in fact 109 instead of 9 years old. The claimed increase in Kawasaki disease in children also turned out to be false.

The Times reports on 28 August: No child who was not already profoundly ill has died of Covid-19 in Britain, a large study has indicated

Children are NOT spreading coronavirus.

“Scientists are yet to find a single confirmed case of a teacher catching coronavirus from a pupil anywhere in the world”, [professor Mark Woolhouse]

“in hindsight closing schools in March was probably a mistake, but the limited role children play in spreading the virus only became clear further along the infection curve.”
As an infectious disease epidemiologist at Edinburgh University, Mark Woolhouse is a member of the UK government’s scientific advisory group, SAGE.

 A Rapid Systematic Review published in the Lancet in April
Effectiveness of school social distancing measures found
no data were available“school closures made very little difference” and “there were school children diagnosed with SARS in Singapore, none of them were identified through temperature screening” and There was no evidence of spread of the infection in schools, with spread among children almost entirely through family settings and living in the same apartment blocks as infected cases.” 

Why Kids Need to Spend Time in Nature:
“Most of the studies agree that kids who play outside are smarter, happier, more attentive, and less anxious than kids who spend more time indoors.”
While calling it a disorder might be merely rhetorical, it’s clear kids spend significantly more time inside than outside. This shift is largely due to technology: The average American child is said to spend 4 to 7 minutes a day in unstructured play outdoors, and over 7 hours a day in front of a screen.
Nature reduces stress and fatigue. According to the Attention Restoration Theory, urban environments exhaust our brains. In natural environments, we practice an effortless type of attention known as soft fascination that creates feelings of pleasure, not fatigue.

‘Long Covid’ / ‘Long-haulers’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#long-haulers – chapter updated 20 January 2021

Could it be, that coronavirus brings underlying conditions to the surface we did not even know before? The mantra “a healthy immune system will deal with all” does not always work, as ‘The Atlantic’ reports on 4 June: COVID-19 Can Last for Several Months.
The disease’s “long-haulers” [or: long covid] have endured relentless waves of debilitating symptoms—and disbelief from doctors and friends.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is typically diagnosed when symptoms persist for six months or more.
About 40 percent of the residents who survived the SARS epidemic of 2003 had chronic-fatigue problems after three years or so, and 27 percent met the CDC’s criteria for ME/CFS. Many different acute pathogens seem to trigger the same inflammatory responses that culminate in the same chronic endgame.
This is post-exertional malaise—the defining feature of ME/CFS. It’s a severe multi-organ crash that follows activity as light as a short walk. It’s also distinct from mere exhaustion: You can’t just push through it, and you’ll feel much worse if you try. The ME/CFS community has learned that resting as much as possible in the early months of postviral fatigue is crucial.
The condition is especially underdiagnosed among black and brown communities, who are also disproportionately likely to be infected and killed by COVID-19.
But recovery is not a simple matter of flipping a switch. For some, it will take more time than the entire duration of the pandemic thus far.

On the 19th August The Atlantic reports:
David Putrino, a neuroscientist and a rehabilitation specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital, has surveyed long-haulers, most are women. Their average age is 44. Most were formerly fit and healthy and experienced
illnesses, such as dysautonomia (disorders that disturb the autonomic nervous system) and myalgic encephalomyelitis.
In an Italian study with 143 patients, 87 percent of hospitalised patients still had at least one symptom after two months, particularly fatigue and dyspnea. A British study found similar trends, including insomnia
More than 90 percent of long-haulers whom Putrino has worked with, also have “post-exertional malaise,” in which even mild bouts of physical or mental exertion can trigger a severe physiological crash.
The trick is to slowly recondition a patient’s nervous system through careful exercises like relaxation and somatic-awareness techniques, without triggering a debilitating crash.
Many long-haulers start feeling better in their fourth or fifth month.

Dr. Wodarg points out that it’s not so much the virus itself that causes long term damage, but the body’s own disturbed immune-response that causes the damage. Seen in the light of the existing science on the same kind of ‘damage’ caused by Influenza it would indeed suggest that the alleged unique damage caused by COVID-19 is not that unique at all. Claims of ‘permanent damage’ made only 2-4 month after the infections took place are premature.

“Seen in the light of the existing science on the same kind of ‘damage’ caused by Influenza it would indeed suggest that the alleged unique damage caused by COVID-19 is not that unique at all.” [Dr. W. Wodarg]

It seems like coronavirus works as a catalyst, bringing hidden weaknesses or underlying health conditions to the surface. Why don’t we use this opportunity to get our health into resiliant shape?

In the article “Is Niacin a Missing Piece of the COVID Puzzle?” are the following tips:
as a “health restorative therapy” for those diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, they recommend starting with a dose of 500 milligrams of immediate-release niacin, two to three times a day, ideally within the first 48 hours of symptom onset. As your flush response lessens, increase your dose to 1,000 mg, two to three times a day. [source]

“For the subgroup of patients still suffering with high cytokines profiles from deep, remnant damage of previously experienced SARS-CoV-2 infection — termed the ‘long-haulers‘ — alleviation from ailment(s) towards complete health restoration to pre-infection state from initiating and maintaining the aforementioned dosage regimen has consistently been reported to assume within two days and to incrementally follow further over the course of weeks.”24

Dr. Mercola comments: “My research suggests you really only need about 25 mg per day of niacin, which will not cause flushing in nearly anyone. I believe most would benefit from taking 25 mg of niacin daily, preferably in a well-balanced B complex, which would have thiamine (B1) that has also been shown to be useful in COVID-19.. I believe a superior strategy to high-dose niacin in acute COVID-19 would be to use nebulized hydrogen peroxide at 0.1%. .”

A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 and led to the bradykinin hypothesis, providing a model that explains many aspects of Covid-19, including some of its most bizarre symptoms.
It also suggests 10-plus potential treatments, many of which are already FDA approved. Jacobson’s group published their results in a paper in the journal eLife in early July.
This hypothesis might point towards demystifying the covid long-haulers?

Stress Stops Immunity. Relax! Laugh!

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#stress updated 2 August 2021

It would be SO much better for everyone’s health, if the Health Ministry would actively support and promote events where people get together and de-stress dancing, singing, laughing or groups and events for relaxation.

Happiness Chemicals And How To Hack Them:
Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin & Endorphine
Happy people are more likely to also be healthy.
Unhappy people are more likely to feel and become ill

Without proper sleep, your immune system can’t produce the special proteins your body needs to fight off infections and inflammation.

Uncertainty, worries about the future or job loss, and fear of the unknown virus causes stress; as a result we will sooner or later come down with any illness (see Lockdown Loneliness & Isolation).

Stop watching TV news or reading the daily paper, and do something creative, or any relaxing activities instead! Meeting good friends and sharing your worries helps you cope in troubled times.

Laughter Yoga unwinds the negative effects of stress and strengthens your immune system. It is an exercise program for Health and Wellbeing. If you laugh every day, you will not fall sick easily.
If you have chronic health conditions like heart disease, Hypertension, Diabetes, Depression, Anxiety, Panic attacks and even Cancer, you will heal much faster. Laughter Yoga increases oxygen to your body and brain, and makes you feel healthy and energetic. It is a great exercise for team building, peak performance, Creativity and emotional intelligence.
The yoga part of Laughter is the combination of Laughter Exercises with yoga breathing techniques ( Pranayama ). There are more than 20,000 free social Laughter clubs in 110 countries. Besides, Laughter Yoga also being practised in Senior centres, age care facilities, schools and colleges, companies, corporations, factories, physically and mentally challenged, police and prisons….

Laughter Yoga releases endorphins which are natural pain killers, that can help those suffering from arthritis, spondylitis, chronic migraine headaches, chronic pains, fibromyalgia, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases.

We need laughter, humour, joy
to stay sane and human.
When did you last have a good laugh?

Below are two methods for stress relief from the article
COVID-19 Pandemic Has Decimated Mental Health:

  3. Switch hands and repeat Steps 1 and 2

2) A tapping strategy to relieve anxiety and other challenging emotions brought on by news and uncertainty about this pandemic and/or self-quarantining is demonstrated below (10 minute video):

Removing Coronavirus Anxiety with tapping: “Emotional Freedom Technique” EFT Demonstration With Julie Schiffman

Loneliness is an important social stressor that can activate the body’s stress responses. When prolonged, that response can lead to increased inflammation and reduced immunity, particularly in older adults. Inflammation is the body’s response to fight off infection or heal an injury, but when it continues unchecked it can have a harmful impact on health. Under chronic stress, the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the stress hormones, leading to increased inflammation and eventually disease.

Health Benefits of Socialising

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#benefit-socialising

Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social well-being and not merely the absence
of disease or other physical impairment [WHO]

“Without social activities, without joy, without thrill, without hugs and kisses, without plans, hopes and dreams, we will cease to be human.
We must oppose anyone who says otherwise” [@robotmats]

Humans are “social animals”, and need each other’s company to stay sane and healthy. Attending a music, sports, dance or other event, or hanging out with friends in a pub lifts the spirit, relaxes, and makes people happy. At the same time the immune system is stimulated by exposure to other peoples’ germs, bacteria and viruses.

daily confirmed covid deaths UK until September 2020, two months after the pubs opened 29 June shows NO increase
Opening pubs shows: socialising does not result in deaths

Meetings to worship together with others from your church, mosque, synagogue, temple, your sangha or your ‘tribe’ is especially powerful.
It brings in the spirit of community, which has comforted and supported religious and spiritual groups throughout history. Some forms of worship include healing, many involve singing or chanting and worshipful prayer.
“When two or three are gathered in my name, I am among them” is a phrase attributed to Jesus, which encapsulates the power which can be created when people focus their hearts and minds together.
And there is also the socialising over a cuppa and sometimes shared meals which helps connecting and bonding with others.

In her book “The Power Of Eight” Lynne McTaggart shares an astonishing fact: when people carry out intention for each other in small groups of eight, miraculous healings occur – virtually in an instant”.
All of this supports our wellbeing and the immune system.

Community is the new guru

Research has shown that prolonged loneliness is associated with increased risk for premature death, similar to smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity. Other health consequences are also associated with loneliness, including elevated risk for heart disease and stroke, and it is associated with increased physician visits and  emergency room visits.

Mass gatherings, demonstrations, concerts and festivals are safe and help keep us healthy. ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests have not seen coronavirus cases surge in cities since the massive demonstrations began, a study says. The research, which was published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, found no evidence that coronavirus cases jumped in 315 US cities in the weeks following the first protests.

Now is the time to sing, dance, celebrate and party in good company, de-stress, forget any virus worries and revive the immune system.

crowd at a concert
The immune system thrives in loving company of others.

“immune cells from high-lonely individuals show in vivo, under basal physiological conditions:
1.) decreased activity of the anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid transcription control pathway;
2.) increased activity of the pro-inflammatory NF-κB/Rel pathway. Results reveal a distinct ‘transcriptional fingerprint’ of experienced social isolation that includes genomic indications of immune activation, and a reciprocal shift in the activity of pro- and anti-inflammatory transcription control pathways that shape global gene expression in the human immune system.” [Study “Social regulation of gene expression in human leukocytes“]

In short:
loneliness breeds inflammation and disease.

Hugging and Human Touch

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#hugging – updated: 23 Jan 2021

A ‘New Scientist’ article: How to hug people in a coronavirus-stricken world, indicates, that the health benefit of hugging is greater than the covid-19 risk.
“Tiffany Field at the University of Miami in Florida and her colleagues surveyed 260 adults and found that those reporting touch deprivation scored higher on scales measuring anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep issues and post-traumatic stress.
60 per cent of people in the US reported feeling touch-deprived during the first month of lockdown, suggests a new study, even though only a fifth of those surveyed lived alone.
A separate study of more than 1000 US adults found that those who frequently hugged, kissed or met up with friends and family in lockdown were 26 per cent less likely to report symptoms of depression and 28 per cent less likely to report loneliness… Regular video chats didn’t show the same benefits.”

"we must never stop loving each other"
Hands. Face. Embrace
Alternative meme, based on compassion, health and human needs

Hugging and virus transmission:
Logically, a good hug is less likely to transmit viruses than a face to face chat, as both huggers involved breathe into the space behind each other over their shoulders, putting hands on the backs of the other person; this makes it nearly impossible for a virus to get transmitted.
Speaking face to face does not increase oxytocin, which we need to be happy. After the lockdown people are craving for hugs and social contacts and tired of feeling miserable.

Human contact, togetherness and touch promotes health

“We saw stronger mental health benefits from types of contact that involved touch, which aligns well with the benefits we know come from close touching, like decreased heart rate, higher levels of oxytocin and lower levels of cortisol,” Molly Rosenberg, Indiana School of Public Health in Bloomington.

Even before Covid-19 there was a concern about the decrease of touch in society. So the BBC launched a new global study called ‘The Touch Test’, which took place mostly before the UK was in lockdown: ‘Why I’m not alone in missing hugs during the pandemic‘, including stories like “It’s more than six months now since I’ve hugged my parents or my friends”. On 5th October, a series of programmes “Anatomy of Touch” will start on BBC Radio 4.

Human touch is more important than we may realise

Here is another article from the New Scientist, showing why your brain needs touch to make you human. Being touchy-feely isn’t just nice – it caresses build social worlds from families to sports teams and may even give us our sense of self

Hugging strengthens the immune system
Hugs increase levels of oxytocin and reduce blood pressure.
The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.
Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

Hugs educate us how love flows both ways.
Hugs are so much like meditation and laughter. They teach us to let go and be present in the moment. They encourage us to flow with the energy of life. Hugs get you out of your circular thinking patterns and connect you with your heart and your feelings and your breath.

Touching and being in close contact with others keeps us happy and healthy

The importance of human touch:
“All human primates are wired for touch, whether we like or not,” says Francis McGlone, a professor of neuroscience at Liverpool John Moores University.
“‘Skin hunger’ is a layman’s term for what, in research, is known as ‘affection deprivation’, which is associated with a range of psychological and even physical health detriments,” adds Kory Floyd, a professor of communication at the University of Arizona who has written extensively on how a dearth of tactile affection can be linked to stress, depression, loneliness and anxiety.
McGlone’s area of interest lies in a different nerve altogether – the C-tactile afferent. This touch-hungry nerve fibre responds specifically to gentle stroking and, unlike its counterpart, does not send this information to the brain straight away – it takes several seconds to arrive.
“That nerve clearly evolved differently,” says McGlone. “The nerve fibre fires up areas of the brain that connect to reward. There’s a release of oxytocin, a hormone that plays a fundamental role in our social behaviour. It has an effect on our dopamine levels, which is the brain’s reward system; it impacts on the release of serotonin, which is connected to our happiness and wellbeing; it has an impact on oustress system; and it helps lower our heart rate.”
“The effects of touch are physiological, bioelectrical and biochemical,” agrees Tiffany Field, founder of the Touch Research Institute at Miami Medical School. “Moving the skin (as, for example, in hugging, massaging and exercise) stimulates pressure receptors which are transmitted to the vagus nerve, the largest cranial nerve that has many branches in the body. Increased vagal activity calms the nervous system (e.g. slows heart rate and leads to EEG patterns that accompany relaxation). It also reduces cortisol – the culprit stress hormone – that then saves natural killer cells that kill viral, bacterial and cancer cells.”

When two cousins and best friends were hugging each other for the first time after lockdown, they started sobbing from the bottom of their hearts. This shows, how much trauma the social distancing has created in us, and how much we NEED hugs. All of us are traumatised – but adults usually don’t show or admit it.

Benefits of chanting
Chanting is a form of singing repetitive short phrases with usually a spiritual message

There are so many benefits of singing including heart health, relaxation and helping the immune system.
The first study to “demonstrate the widespread immune effects of singing, in particular its effects on cytokines showed a significant decrease in cortisol and neuropeptide levels accompanied by an acute increase in cytokine and receptor activity. …this demonstrates that improvements in mood were associated with lower levels of pro-inflammatory response”
“there was evidence that greater improvements in mood as a result of singing were associated with lower pro-inflammatory response… independent of stress levels. … those with the lowest levels of mental wellbeing and highest levels of depression experienced the greatest short-term improvement in mood across the singing session, and that these larger mood changes were associated with lower levels of inflammation.“  [from ecancer.org/en/journal/article/631]

Keeping body and soul in tune – the many health benefits of singing:

bacteria from respiratory droplets spread by singing versus talking into a petri dish
Singing versus talking to a petridish:
there’s really not much difference.
See the whole perti dish experiment in the ‘Face Masks’ chapter

The experiment on the left shows, that singing does NOT spread bacteria more than talking into a petri dish.
However: the health benefits of singing are much higher than those of talking.
WHY are we not allowed to sing?
And there is not much difference between with, and without mask.

The above experiment also proves the old advice: “catch it & bin it”.
A handkerchief or coughing / sneezing into one’s ellbow should be sufficient.

Below is an example, which should really be in the comedy section:

Humming & Nitric Oxide

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#humming – chapter created: 20 December 2020

Nitric oxide shows promise as antiviral treatment:
“An in vitro study finds that nitric oxide, NO, may suppress SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The researchers suggest that inhaled nitric oxide may be an effective treatment for the disease.
Nitric oxide is a cell signaling molecule produced naturally by the body with anti-inflammatory effects and is a vasodilator, meaning it dilates blood vessels to increase blood flow. It also has antiviral properties and is is effective against the herpes virus, coxsackievirus, and hantavirus.
It also inhibits the replication of SARS-CoV.”
“A small clinical study suggests that inhaled nitric oxide at low concentrations not only works as a vasodilator for SARS patients — improving oxygenation of their blood — but also as an antiviral agent.”
“The scientists were also able to show that nitric oxide inhibited a key enzyme called a protease that the virus needs to make copies of itself.”

PubMed.gov publihed a study in 2002: “Humming greatly increases nasal nitric oxide” – Abstract:
“The paranasal sinuses are major producers of nitric oxide (NO). We hypothesized that oscillating airflow produced by humming would enhance sinus ventilation and thereby increase nasal NO levels. Ten healthy subjects took part in the study. Nasal NO was measured with a chemiluminescence technique during humming and quiet single-breath exhalations at a fixed flow rate.
NO increased 15-fold during humming compared with quiet exhalation. In a two-compartment model of the nose and sinus, oscillating airflow caused a dramatic increase in gas exchange between the cavities…”

It is a powerful non-pharmaceutical prescription for self-healing that has only positive side effects, such as harmony, health, and happiness. 
“The Goldmans have superbly, practically, and with great simplicity expanded upon this truth and demonstrated the potency of the hum to heal at all levels of our being. The Humming Effect, with its audio tracks, is an essential text in extending the range of what the human voice can achieve in self-empowered wellness.”

Sunshine, Darkness & Health

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#sunshine

The media have been full with disease scares, and not much about health

There is so much more to sunshine than producing vitamin D.
Sunshine literally nourishes us and is essentila to human health.
And yes: UV light kills viruses and disinfects naturally.
Ari Whitten gives a lecture on Using Light, Circadian Rhythm, sleep and Hormesis to Optimize Immune Function.

Science proves the sun’s UV light is antiviral

A good night’s sleep is a backbone for health
Here tips from 8 Reasons Why You’re Not Sleeping Well:
• No workout within three hours of your own bedtime.
• Limit alcohol in the evening: it interferes with your REM sleep cycle
• Stay cool for the most refreshing sleep
• Avoid worries or stress; write down your worries before bedtime, along with a few things you are grateful for. Try meditating.
• No coffeine from late afternoon: the half-life of caffeine is 3-5 hours.
• Silence! Try using a white-noise machine to block out the sound.
• Darkness! Light impairs your sleep quality – sleeping with lights on results in a 50% melatonin reduction.
No electronics at least an hour before bedtime.
• No late heavy meal sending your digestive system into overdrive

exposure to room light before bedtime suppresses melatonin onset
Melatonin (produced in darkness) is essential for health

Your Brain Starts Eating Itself After Being Starved for Sleep:

  • Sleep deprivation can trigger abnormal action of astrocytes, cells involved in brain cleansing and regeneration
  • When astrocytes are functioning abnormally, they can eat and destroy healthy brain synapses, increasing your risk of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases
  • A consistent sleep schedule is important for keeping your brain healthy and avoiding other chronic health problems
  • The exact amount of sleep you need depends on your age, overall health and activity levels, but for adults, seven to nine hours is a good general rule

In our western “modern” lives we get too little sun light exposure at day time – and too much artificial light before going to bed, which can derail the human circadian rhythm.

health impact of circadian rhythms
circadian rhythm is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours. Abnormal circadian rhythm in humans is known as circadian rhythm disorder and can lead to various diseases.

Aspirin & Coronavirus

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#aspirin – 2 February 2021

Covid-19 patients using aspirin were 43% less likely to be admitted to the ICU 
They were also 44% less likely to need ventilators due to their heart medication
Daily aspirin use also reduced the risk of death by 47%
Researchers say aspirin could be the first over-the counter drug for Covid-19 [MailOnline, 26 October 2020

Aspirin Use is Associated with Decreased Mechanical Ventilation, ICU Admission, and In-Hospital Mortality in Hospitalized Patients with COVID-19

  • The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus can cause blood platelets to clump, leading to potential blood clots that damage organs.
  • Aspirin is known to thin the blood, helping to prevent blood clots in people who have cardiovascular disease.
  • A new study shows that people hospitalized with COVID-19 benefitted from taking low-dose aspirin.

Low-dose (81 mg) aspirin has been used as a therapy to decrease the risk of heart attacks and strokes caused by blood clots in people who have cardiovascular disease (CVD) [source]
Whether low-dose aspirin is helpful or harmful depends on who you are. If you are at risk of cardiovascular disease, it could be beneficial; but if you are at risk of ulcers and bleeding in your gastrointestinal tract, it could be harmful.

Vitamin B, Niacin & Immunity

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-b new chapter, 20 January 2021

Is Niacin a Missing Piece of the COVID Puzzle?

  • B vitamins may play an important role in COVID-19 prevention and treatment, according to two recent papers
  • Based on B vitamins’ effects on your immune system, immune-competence and red blood cells (which help fight infection), supplementation may be a useful adjunct to other prevention and treatment strategies
  • Vitamin B assists in proper activation of both the innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine levels, improves respiratory function, maintains endothelial integrity, prevents hypercoagulability and can reduce the length of stay in hospital.
  • Niacin (vitamin B3) appears particularly important. According to a recent paper, there appears to be a causative link between low niacin status and SARS-CoV-2 infection
  • SARS-CoV-2’s ability to invade your body is dependent on calcium signaling, which in turn is dependent on the presence of NAADP, which is formed from niacin. NAADP-dependent calcium signaling is responsible both for the inhibition of viral entry into cells and driving the virus out of already infected cells

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) — Thiamine improves immune system function, protects cardiovascular health, inhibits inflammation and aids in healthy antibody responses.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) — Riboflavin in combination with ultraviolet light has been shown to decrease the infectious titer of SARS-CoV-2 below the detectable limit
Vitamin B3 (niacin/nicotinamide) — Niacin is a building block of NAD and NADP, which are vital when combating inflammation.
“the downstream inflammatory propagation of ensuing severe acute respiratory virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection is entirely prohibited or reversed upstream out the body to expeditiously restore health with well-tolerated dynamic supplementation of sufficient NA (i.e., ~1-3 grams per day).”
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) — Vitamin B5 aids in wound healing and reduces inflammation.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5′-phosphate/pyridoxine) — Pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (PLP), the active form of vitamin B6, is a cofactor in several inflammatory pathways.
Vitamin B9 (folate/folic acid) — Folate, the natural form of B9 found in food, is required for the synthesis of DNA and protein in your adaptive immune response.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) — B12 is required for healthy synthesis of red blood cells and DNA. A deficiency in B12 increases inflammation and oxidative stress by raising homocysteine levels. B12 deficiency is also associated with certain respiratory disorders. Advancing age can diminish your body’s ability to absorb B12 from food

“A recent study showed that methylcobalamin supplements have the potential to reduce COVID-19-related organ damage and symptoms. A clinical study conducted in Singapore showed that COVID-19 patients who were given vitamin B12 supplements (500 μg), vitamin D (1000 IU) and magnesium had reduced COVID-19 symptom severity and supplements significantly reduced the need for oxygen and intensive care support.”

Niacin Modulates the Bradykinin Storm
COVID-19 also triggers bradykinin storms. Bradykinin is a chemical that helps regulate your blood pressure and is controlled by your renin-angiotensin system (RAS). The bradykinin hypothesis provides a model that helps explain some of the more unusual symptoms of COVID-19, including its bizarre effects on your cardiovascular system
[see chapter ‘Covid Long Haulers‘ above]

As a “health restorative therapy” for those diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, they recommend starting with a dose of 500 milligrams of immediate-release niacin, two to three times a day, ideally within the first 48 hours of symptom onset. As your flush response lessens, increase your dose to 1,000 mg, two to three times a day.23

Vitamin C Covid-19 Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-c – updated: 9 Feb 2021

On 4th of March 2020, the Chinese Journal of Infectious Disease, hosted by the Medical Association of Shanghai, published “The expertise consensus regarding the total treatment of coronavirus in Shanghai 2019”. This document is of extraordinary importance, as it concentrates the Chinese experience in combating the virus: 
Antiviral treatment of light and ordinary patients:
“Heparin anticoagulation and high-dose vitamin C are recommendedVitamin C is administered at a dose of 50 to 100 mg / kg body weight per day… In the event of a “cytokine storm”, intermittent short veno-venuous hemofiltration (ISVVH) is recommended.”
Treatment for severe and critically ill patients:
“6. Prevention and treatment of cytokine storm: It is recommended to use large doses of vitamin C and unfractionated heparin. Large doses of vitamin C are injected intravenously at a dose of 100 to 200 mg / kg per day.”

usual bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) for different conditions
VITAMIN C, TITRATING TO BOWEL TOLERANCE, ANASCORBEMIA, AND ACUTE INDUCED SCURVY Notice:
viral pneumonia:  100 – 200+ per 24 hours, 12 – 25 doses per 24 hours

VITAMIN C DOSING: How much vitamin C should I take?
Your optimal dose of vitamin C depends on one thing: you. Are you healthy? Stressed? Sick? In sickness it was observed by Robert F. Cathcart, III, MD, that, “The amount of oral ascorbic acid (vitamin C) tolerated by a patient without producing diarrhea (loose bowels) increases somewhat proportionately to the stress or toxicity of his disease” and “[s]tressful conditions of any kind greatly increase utilization of vitamin C.” In other words, the sicker or more stressed you are, the more vitamin C you will “hold” before getting to saturation (bowel tolerance). Bowel tolerance is indicated by gas, a rumbling stomach, or slightly loose stool. If you take way too much C, very loose stool will result, but this goes away once dosages are reduced. When bowel tolerance is reached, this is a sign to back off the extra C. We continue to take C, but we take less and less often. It may take days to resolve illness (it depends how sick we are) but when healthy, the body needs less and “holds” less C. “

Biophysicist Virgiliu Gheorghe on the topic of vitamin C:
it looks like it was vitamin C that lead to stopping the epidemic in China.” in the article Coronavirus Coverup — Vitamin C Dramatic Help against Infection in China, South Korea — Why Aren’t We Told

Orthomolecular.org reports on 16 August:
These studies show very promising results including statistically significant reduction in mortality and inflammation of Covid-19 patients treated with HDIVC [High Dose IntraVenous Vitamin C], with no significant side effect.
But no major medical journals have agreed to publish the papers”.
“…12 qualified patients (18 years or older), 6 critically ill and 6 severely ill patients, were identified and included in the final analysis. C reactive protein, lymphocyte count and CD4+ T cell counts returned to normal on Day 3.
Similar trend of improvement in blood oxygenation levels (PaO2/FiO2) and SOFA (an organ failure measurement) score was also observed, after HDIVC … there were no deaths in HDIVC treated Covid-19 patients in Shanghai.”
“An NIH document (updated in February 2020) clearly states that HDIVC is safe even at very high doses”
The FDA even allows “compassionate drug use” which stipulates the use of new and unapproved drug to treat seriously ill patient when no other treatments are available [11].”

The NHS and NICE only mention vitamin C use for treating scurvy, and declare: “Claims that vitamin C ameliorates colds or promotes wound healing have not been proven.”
Wikipedia states “Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin,[22] … exhibits remarkably low acute toxicity.[5] More than two to three grams may cause indigestion, particularly when taken on an empty stomach.”

Scheme showing no improvement unless really high doses of vitamin C are taken. Disease symptom curves indicate very little effect on acute symptoms until doses of 80-90% of bowel tolerance are reached. Perhaps it is only near tolerance doses that the ascorbate is pushed into the primary sites of the disease.

‘Public Health’ should promote the use of Vitamin C as a home remedy to prevent and treat inflammation before using NHS services, recommending “titrating to bowel tolerance”.

Only when enough vitamin C is made available to the body, dramatic improvement occurs.

There is evidence that vitamin C and quercetin co-administration exerts a synergistic antiviral action due to overlapping antiviral and immunomodulatory properties and the capacity of ascorbate to recycle quercetin, increasing its efficacy:

  • Quercetin and Vitamin C: Synergistic Therapy for COVID-19
  • Vitamin C and quercetin have synergistic effects, useful in the prevention and early at-home treatment of COVID-19. Both are part of the MATH+ protocol developed by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Working Group (FLCCC)
  • For COVID-19 prophylaxis, the FLCCC recommends vitamin C, quercetin, zinc, melatonin and vitamin D3
  • The in-hospital MATH+ protocol calls for intravenous methylprednisone, high-dose ascorbic acid (vitamin C), thiamine and heparin. Optional additions include melatonin, zinc, vitamin D3, atorvastatin, famotidine and magnesium
  • Starting aggressive treatment as early as possible is crucial

“…large doses of vitamin C could also cure other viral diseases such as meningitis, hepatitis, measles, mumps, pneumonia, shingles and even the poisonous bite of a rattlesnake. [2-4] 
Since that time other researchers have reported that there is no viral disease that high-dose IVC cannot successfully treat.
“Klenner did not win a popularity contest with his colleagues. He wrote in frustration that “Some physicians would stand by and see their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because in their finite minds it exists only as a vitamin.”
“…doctors who use IVC in North America are being harassed by authorities. In some case, being told that if they persist they will lose their license to practice medicine.” [source]

Vitamin D Covid-19 Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vitamin-d – updated: 31 March 2021

22 Feb 2021: A Spanish study found giving supplemental vitamin D3 (calcifediol) to hospitalized patients with PCR-confirmed COVID-19 — in addition to standard care — reduced ICU admissions by 82% and mortality by 64%
You need 244% more oral vitamin D if you’re not also taking magnesium and vitamin K2.43 [source]

Vitamin D supplementation reduced the risk of acute respiratory tract infection among all participants in 25 eligible randomised controlled trials with 11 321 participants, Vitamin D supplementation was safe and it protected against acute respiratory tract infection overall. Patients who were very vitamin D deficient and those not receiving bolus doses experienced the most benefit.”

  • A randomized clinical study found giving hospitalized COVID-19 patients calcifediol (a vitamin D3 analog) in addition to standard care reduced intensive care unit admissions from 50% to 2%. None of those given calcifediol died, and all were discharged without complications
  • Vitamin D lowers viral replication, boosts your overall immune function by modulating both innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces respiratory distress, improves overall lung function and helps produce surfactants in your lungs that aid in fluid clearance
  • Vitamin D also lowers your risk of comorbidities associated with poor COVID-19 prognosis, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease [source]

An August 2020 study found patients who had a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) had a 6.12 times higher risk of severe disease requiring invasive mechanical ventilation, and a 14.7 times higher risk of death compared to those with a vitamin D level above 12 ng/mL

An adult will need to take 4,000 IU/day of vitamin D3 for three months to reliably achieve a 75 nmol/L level. Persons of colour may need twice as much.”
“And since vitamin D is fat-soluble and its level in the body rises slowly, for those with a deficiency, taking an initial dose of 5-fold the normal dose (20,000 IU/day) for two weeks can help to raise the level up to an adequate level to lower infection risk.”
Government recommendations for vitamin D intake — 400 IU/day for the UK and 600 IU/day for the USA (800 IU for >70 years) and the EU — are based primarily on bone health. This is woefully inadequate in the pandemic context.” [source]

Vitamin D biochemistry, RAS and ARDS – summary of findings in this section:

  • Chronic Vitamin D deficiency induces lung fibrosis through activation of the RAS.
  • Vitamin D deficiency contributes directly to the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
  • Low Vitamin D Status Occurs in 90% of Patients with ARDS and Is Associated with Longer Duration of Mechanical Ventilation.
  • Vitamin D prevents experimental lung fibrosis and predicts survival in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
  • Vitamin D alleviates lipopolysaccharide‑induced acute lung injury via regulation of the renin‑angiotensin system.
  • VDR Attenuates Acute Lung Injury by Blocking Ang-2-Tie-2 Pathway and Renin-Angiotensin System.
  • 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 suppresses renin gene transcription by blocking the activity of the cyclic AMP response element in the renin gene promoter.
  • Vitamin D supplementation is safe and protects against respiratory tract infection.
  • Studies in HIV patients show Vitamin D induces anti-inflammatory responses through direct effects on T-cells. 
    Vitamin D promotes an anti-inflammatory response by inhibiting the maturation of dendritic cells, downregulating antigen presenting molecules (MHC-class II), costimulatory molecules (e.g., CD40, CD80, and CD86), and pro-inflammatory cytokines (e.g., IL-12 and IL-23); Simultaneously, Vitamin D enhances anti-inflammatory cytokine (IL-10) and T-cell inhibitory molecule (PD-1).

Chronic vitamin D deficiency induces lung fibrosis through activation of the renin-angiotensin system

  • Vitamin D is causal in reducing development of all cancers, including colorectal cancer.
  • Mortality rates for colorectal cancer have been shown to correlate with latitude.
  • Vitamin D insufficiency/deficiency plays a causative role in the prevalence of Crohn’s Disease.
  • People living near the equator are at low risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease, however, upon migration to developed countries in temperate climates, the risk of IBD increases.
  • Regular doses of vitamin D (VTD)—about 2000 IU/d—early in life have been shown to reduce the risk of developing type 1 diabetes (up to an 80% reduction projected over the next 30 years)
  • Vitamin D is implicated in procognitive and neuroprotective functions, including the reduction of Alzheimer’s disease hallmarks 
  • Nicotine (smoking) downregulates ACE2 almost certainly worsening Covid-19 outcomes for smokers and ex-smokers.

HealthTruth.info comment: there is no patent on D3, so no profit;
all the profit is in the flu vaccines and covid vaccines.

WARNING: in very rare cases of hypercalcemia (too much calcium in the blood), vitamin D3 should NOT be taken. In March 2021 a woman, B., contacted HealthTruth.info and shared her story:
“We spoke about Vitamin D and  I’ve just written a few words on my problems with it here, I realise it is probably very rare.  I had lots of bloods taken at that time and no other seemed to be of concern.
1) after blood test  Vit D on lowest limit of lower level, advised to take a minimum dose  in 2016/2017 apx 1000iu per day or 7000 a week.
Symptoms had been tiredness, aching and not enough energy in muscles when at Gym, walking was fine.
2) after apx 4 weeks aching got worse , after 6 weeks started to feel really tired bones aching, felt sick, then weeing more, drinking more, for about 3 days as well as previous noticed my vision blurred by afternoon and difficulty focusing, also think I may have had heart palpitations . Final evening started feeling really unwell, thirsty , going to toilet, sweating, all bones ached, by late evening in agony, literally crawled in to bed laid there in agony even my toe bones ached all bones ached. Laid in bed all evening in agony couldn’t face getting  to hospital sitting in waiting room as everything just hurt too much so just lay there all night.
Next morning felt better than I had and stopped taking any supplements incl vitamin D took it easy, noticed after stopping Vitamin D, I was feeling better each day & tried to get the doctors to find out if too much vitamin D
took blood but  vit D still low , I realise they probably should have taken a calcium blood check as later found out the symptoms were hypercalcemia.
For some, taking a vitamin D supplement over an extended period of time can cause the blood calcium level to rise. If calcium in the blood exceeds a normal level, hypercalcemia may develop.
3) Many people prescribing Vitamin D say cant take too much, but clearly there are a few like me that it doesnt agree with.   Long term I’ve noticed my toes still ache regularly, especially after a long walk.
Only other medical problems at the time was I will have been menopausal  & stressed.
Happy for you to let people be aware of this, preferably not name me, but do mention its rare as I dont want to panic anyone when everyone is being told to take vitamin D.
I only know of one elderly person in a nursing home who had similar problems, but if anyone feels worse after taking  Vitamin D please stop & review.”

Madagascar’s remedy ‘Covid-Organics’

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#madagaskar

“This herbal tea gives results in seven days,” said Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina in April. ‘Covid Organics’ is a herbal remedy (also known as Tambavy CVO), produced from artemisia, a plant with proven efficacy against malaria, and other indigenous herbs, according to the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research, which developed the beverage.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) advised people against using untested remedies for COVID-19. “Even if therapies are derived from traditional practice and natural, establishing their efficacy and safety through rigorous clinical trials is critical.”

Sweet wormwood - Artemisia

Does Madagascar’s herbal remedy, COVID-Organics work?
In short, our venture EMSKE Phytochem comes out very much in support of COVID-Organics… Quercetin-7-glucoside (aka “quercimeritrin”) actually shows a rather strong 9.15 in the silico assay results. What we see as demonstrating efficacy in the extract is in a lot of common everyday fruits & vegetables as well, like red onions. This plant has been known to (Chinese) traditional medicine to be safe for administering by way of ingestion. 

In Germany  Artemisia annua plant extract was tested (also known as sweet wormwood). Researchers found that the leaves of Artemisia extract showed anti-viral activity after being extracted with pure ethanol or distilled water. The anti-viral activity increased considerably when the ethanol extract was combined with coffee.

Selenium Benefits

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#selenium

Researchers found that areas with high levels of selenium were more likely to recover from the virus. In the city of Enshi in Hubei Province, which has the highest selenium intake in China, the cure rate (percentage of Covid-19 patients declared ‘cured’) was almost three-times higher than the average for all the other cities in Hubei Province.
By contrast, in Heilongjiang Province, where selenium intake is among the lowest in the world, the death rate from Covid-19 was almost five-times as high as the average of all the other provinces outside of Hubei.
Selenium appears relevant to a number of evolutionarily distinct viruses, via potential immunomodulatory effects that are fully consistent with the many essential roles of selenium in the immune system.

Here are some known health benefits of selenium:
Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Improved Thyroid Health
Cancer Prevention
Heart Health
Fertility Support
Help Treating Asthma
Foods rich in selenium:
Brazil nuts, Salmon, Tuna, Turkey, Cottage cheese, Chicken, Mushrooms, Halibut, Eggs, Navy beans, Sardines, Sunflower seeds, Grass-fed beef, Oats

HCQ – Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#hcq

Treating covid-19 successfully with zinc and hydroxychloroquine:

Zinc inhibits RNA polymerase activity of coronaviruses and thus blocks virus replication. Hydroxychloroquine and quercetin support the cellular absorption of zinc and have additional anti-viral properties.

“The mortality rate from COVID-19 in countries that allow access to HCQ is only one-tenth the mortality rate in countries where there is interference with this medication, such as the United States,” the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) general counsel Andrew Schlafly said, citing easier access to the drug in Philippines, Poland, Israel, Turkey, and even Venezuela.

Turkey’s COVID-19 Early Hydroxychloroquine Treatment Strategy
“As soon as a patient has symptoms, they are treated with hydroxychloroquine tablets and/or favipiravir at home. Follow-up calls quickly spot if the symptoms worsen, and then they will be admitted to hospital.”
The Turkish approach is at odds with most countries, such as the UK, where symptomatic patients are asked to stay home, wait, until the symptoms essentially become unbearable, and then serious complications and hospitalisation become very likely.
[Sky News written reporting is remarkable, covering how early outpatient treatment is implemented in Turkey. But there is not a word in their TV program about it]

WARNING: according to Dr. Wodarg, people with ancestors from malaria countries (Africa) may have a glucose-6-dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, a hereditary trait particularly common among ethnic groups living in or coming from areas with malaria. One of the substances dangerous in all forms of this enzyme deficiency is is the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).
Little attention is paid to this serious side effect in HCQ studies.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) Treatment

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#NAC

FDA Wants to Ban NAC Now That It Combats COVID-19:

  • N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a long history of use as a first-aid remedy for acetaminophen poisoning. Compelling research suggests it may also be useful against COVID-19
  • By raising glutathione, NAC combats oxidative stress, which is a main cause of the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19. NAC also inhibits hypercoagulation and breaks up blood clots, which is another complication seen in some COVID-19 cases
  • NAC helps loosen thick mucus in the lungs and improves a variety of lung-related problems, including pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), both of which are common characteristics of COVID-19
  • NAC was found to improve immune function and reduce the severity of influenza infections. 
  • Aside from increasing glutathione, NAC may also prevent or improve COVID-19 infection by improving T cell response and modulating inflammation

At present, seven studies involving NAC for COVID-19 are listed on Clinicaltrials.gov.5
The number needed to treat (NNT) in the study8 cited by Debé is 0.5, which means for every two people treated with NAC, one will be protected against symptomatic influenza. That’s significantly better than influenza vaccines, which have an NNV (number needed to vaccinate) of 71,9 meaning 71 people must be vaccinated to prevent a single case of confirmed influenza. It’s even better than vitamin D, which has an NNT of 33.10 
With COVID-19 treatment as a new indication, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now suddenly cracking down on NAC, claiming it is excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement, as it was approved as a new drug in 1985.2 As such, NAC cannot be marketed as a supplement.

See also the chapter “Nitric Oxide & Humming” above.

June 30, 2020, “Zelenko and two co-authors published a study,10 currently in preprint, which found treating COVID-19 patients who had confirmed positive test results “as early as possible after symptom onset” with zinc, low-dose hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin “was associated with significantly less hospitalizations and five times less all-cause deaths.” Hydroxychloroquine has been used safely for 65 years in many millions of patients.”

From How a False Hydroxychloroquine Narrative Was Created

The Swiss Policy Research recommends the following Covid-19 treatment
(updated 4 September):
Prophylaxis:
Zinc (50mg to 100mg per day)
Quercetin (500mg to 1000mg per day)
Bromhexine (25mg to 50mg per day)
Vitamins C (1000mg) and D (2000 u/d)

Early treatment:
Zinc (75mg to 150mg per day)
Quercetin (500mg to 1500mg per day)
Bromhexine (50mg to 75mg per day)
Vitamins C (1000mg) and D (4000 u/d)

Ancillary (prescription only):
Hydroxychloroquine (400mg per day)
High-dose vitamin D (1x 100,000 IU)
Azithromycin (up to 500mg per day)
Heparin (usual dosage)
Note: Contraindications for HCQ (e.g. favism or heart disease) must be observed.
Addendum: Other prescription drugs with first reported successes in the early medical treatment of Covid-19 are ivermectin (read more) and favipiravir (read more).

Professor Thomas Borody, from the Centre for Digestive Diseases in Sydney, Australia, claims in covexit.com in August: It’s Easier than Treating the Flu
COVID-19 is now curable with Ivermectin in combination with 2 other widely available generic drugs – Doxycycline and Zinc 
it can treat and get rid, within 6 to 10 days, of the coronavirus”
Why aren’t we treating every elderly person in every health care facility, in every aged care facility with this? “There is no drug company behind it. “There are no people who are lobbying government and giving donations for reelections.”

Budesonide is an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid. Inhaled with a nebulizer directly into the lungs, it prevents the cytokene storm triggered by covid-19. This is an easily deployable pre-hospital community-based treatment. “Thus far, 100% of my patients appear to be symptom free following a course of inhaled Budesonide therapy”. Budesonide has been studied and utilized for lung related inflammation for over 20 years. Taiwan, Japan and South Korea have used this treatment successfully, keeping covid-19 death numbers low. “Delayed treatment is not a valid health strategy”

Homeopathy, Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#homeopathy-acupuncture – updated 23 January 2021

Acupuncture could help coronavirus patientsstudy says
By Hannah Frishberg and Hannah Sparks, August 17, 2020
The traditional Chinese practice influenced rodents’ ability to cope with a cytokine storm. In the new study, researchers found that mice experiencing a cytokine storm had a 40% greater chance of survival when treated with electroacupuncture. As well, acupuncture worked well as a preventative practice: Mice treated with acupuncture before developing a cytokine storm experienced lower levels of inflammation and their survival rate increased from 20 to 80%.
“It’s always nice when Western studies back up the ancient healing medical system of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine… Acupuncture is fantastic at triggering the body’s innate healing abilities, helping with inflammation and calming the nervous system. I have seen great results at my practice, treating patients with post-COVID-19 symptoms,” said acupuncturist Sara Reznikoff

Homeopaths have trialed remedies for covid-19 with highly encouraging results.
Phosphorous and Spigelia.
“Homeopathy is hugely successful during epidemics, with a lower mortality rate and people getting better much more quickly,” says Sherr. “So far, the results with COVID-19 have been amazing.”
Of the 204 cases, 64 percent reported their symptoms as “very much better” after homeopathy, 28 percent were “much better.” The other seven percent were either somewhat better or unchanged. None worsened.
The main remedies used in stage 1 cases were Aconite, Phosphorus, and Bryonia. The stage 2 cases had more intense and deeper symptoms and reduced vitality.
The contrast between the attitude of homeopaths like Sherr and the tales of helplessness and despair from medical doctors and nurses watching patients die alone on ventilators in traditional hospital ICUs, separated from their loved ones, couldn’t be starker.

The Scientist Magazine reports on the 7th February 2020:
“The Indian government’s Ministry of AYUSH, which promotes alternative medicine systems in the country, released a health advisory on January 29 that advocates the use of homeopathy and traditional remedies, such as Indian systems of medicine, to ward off infections of the newly circulating 2019-nCoV coronavirus. This includes the use of a homeopathic preparation called Arsenicum album 30C and two drops of sesame oil in each nostril each morning for prevention, and Unani medicines (treatments based on the teachings of Hippocrates and Galen) to mitigate symptoms of coronavirus infection.

New Coronavirus: All Eyes On India specifies another homeopathic treatment:
“It has recommended one dose of Arsenicum album 30, daily in empty stomach for three days. The dose should be repeated after one month by following the same schedule in case Coronavirus infections prevail in the community.”

According to Dr. med. Johannes Wilkens (ärztlicher Direktor der Alexander von Humboldt Klinik in Bad Steben, Landkreis Hof, Germany), homeopathic treatment with Bryonia/Stannum removes covid-19 symptoms after three days. [source: Verblüffende Corona-Heilungen durch homöopathische und anthroposophische Arzneimittel, 20 December 2020]

As homeopathy usually has no side effects, the only criticism could be that using homeopathy might prevent people from getting a “proper” treatment. As health officials keep claiming “there is no treatment for coronavirus”, this risk is clearly not existant.

Can Chinese Medicine Be Used for Prevention of Corona Virus Disease?
A Review of Historical Classics, Research Evidence and Current Prevention Programs from 17 Februry states:
“The infection rate of H1N1 influenza in the CM group was significantly lower than the non-CM group.”
The most frequently used herbs included Radix astragali (Huangqi), Radix glycyrrhizae (Gancao), Radix saposhnikoviae (Fangfeng), Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocephalae (Baizhu), Lonicerae Japonicae Flos (Jinyinhua), and Fructus forsythia (Lianqiao).
Conclusions: Based on historical records and human evidence of SARS and H1N1 influenza prevention, Chinese herbal formula could be an alternative approach for prevention of COVID-19 in high-risk population.”

Research suggests seaweed used in traditional Chinese medicine could protect against COVID-19:
“a carbohydrate found in the seaweed Ecklonia kurome blocks the activity of an enzyme that is essential for the replication of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) – the agent that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).” The seaweed is called “Kun Bu” in China.
The researchers found that polysaccharide 375 completely blocked the enzyme activity of 3CLpro. Furthermore, the homogeneous polysaccharide 37502 bound to 3CLpro and potently disrupted spike – ACE2 binding.
Recently, two components of the traditional Chinese herbal medicine Shuanghuanglian were shown to inhibit 3CLpro in SARS-CoV-2 and to exhibit potent antiviral activities in vitro.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
People with pre-existing conditions need to look after their health. Here are several studies showing what you can do if you have any of the following pre-existing conditions:

cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, pneumonia, obesity, dementia, malignancy, severe asthma, respiratory, liver, neurological and auto-immune diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and kidney disease.

WARNING: When you’ve been on a course of anti-biotics, these anti-biotics cannot distinguish between good and bad bacteria and zaps them all. It can take up to 6 months for the good bacteria to re-populate the gut; some unlucky people can take even longer.
Do you use anti-bacterial wipes? Anti-bacterial washing up liquid, anti-bacterial cleaning sprays in your house, if you do, it is inevitable that you will be ingesting some of the antibacterial agents and they will be destroying the good bacteria in your gut.

  • Metabolic Inflexibility Is Key Risk Factor for COVID-19:
  • While SARS-CoV-2 is a rampant virus that can cause severe problems in vulnerable individuals, the real pandemic — the underlying cause that makes people susceptible to complications from the infection in the first place — is poor metabolic health
  • Aside from old age, obesity has been identified as one of the primary risk factors for being hospitalized with COVID-19 — doubling the risk of hospitalization in patients under the age of 60 in one study
  • One hypothesis for why obesity is worsening COVID-19 has to do with the fact that obesity causes chronic inflammation. Having more proinflammatory cytokines in circulation increases your risk of experiencing a cytokine storm
  • Insulin resistance is another top risk factor for COVID-19 that worsens outcomes and increases your risk of death
  • There are five primary parameters of metabolic health: waist circumference, insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and triglyceride and HDL levels. Having three or more abnormal parameters is indicative of metabolic syndrome

Earthing, otherwise known as Grounding, is the act of reconnecting with the Earth’s natural electrical current. Unfortunately, modern living has mostly isolated us from our electrical connection with the Earth. Everything from wearing rubber soled shoes to the use of synthetic flooring materials, all block our ability to Earth.
Everyone has the opportunity to reconnect and simply walk barefoot on the Earth outside, however, it’s not always easy to kick off your shoes and spend hours each day barefoot.
“Western Civilization has been a steady march away from nature.
One of these profound strides away from earth’s healing nature occurred in the 1950’s and ‘60’s when we began wearing rubber soled shoes. In that move toward comfort and convenience we insulated ourselves from the single biggest anti-inflammatory we have – planet earth” – Dr Zach Bush, Triple Board certified physician.

Relaxing in an icecube filled pool THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE WIM HOF METHOD

If ice is too much for you:
start with having a cold shower after hot each day:
‘There was a really interesting study showing that if people had a normal shower and then for the last 30 seconds or so every morning, they switched it to cold. The people who were having the cold showers, they reduced their sickness days from work,’ a researcher told Dr Ronx.
‘It was 30% lower in sickness rate in those people, so that’s quite a big drop.’ ‘That cold part of the shower in the morning was initiating this stress response which was helping initiate some of these beneficial mechnicisms’ the researcher continued. [source: metro.co.uk 7 Jan 2021]

Many scientific studies have confirmed the Wim Hof method works –
for example: Radboud University, The Netherlands (2014):

  • Aimed to test if the results from the first study on Wim could be reproduced with a larger group
  • Injected 12 Wim Hof Method practitioners with an endotoxin
  • Results showed that, like Wim, they were able to control their sympathetic nervous system and immune response
  • Anti-inflammatory mediators were ~200% higher,
    while pro-inflammatory mediators were ~50% lower
  • Potentially important implications for “conditions associated with excessive or persistent inflammation, especially autoimmune diseases.” (2014, Knox et. al.)

Testimonials:
“For 12 years now I have had rheumatism. Thanks to the Wim Hof Method I have been able to halve the amount of anti-inflammatory drugs”
“I have severe arthritis in my left hip. By implementing the Wim Hof Method in my daily life, I can deal with this without getting surgery. I’m almost 66 years old and by practicing the Wim Hof Method I feel much more alive”

BECAUSE WE WEAR CLOTHES AND CONTROL THE TEMPERATURES AT HOME AND WORK, WE HAVE CHANGED THE STIMULATION ON OUR BODY, THUS THE OLD MECHANISMS RELATED TO SURVIVE AND FUNCTION.
AS THESE DEEPER PHYSIOLOGICAL LAYERS ARE NOT STIMULATED ANYMORE WE HAVE BECOME ALIENATED FROM THEM, THUS OUR BODIES HAVE WEAKENED AND WE ARE NO LONGER IN TOUCH WITH THIS INNER POWER.
THE INNER POWER IS A FORCE ACCUMULATED BY FULL AWAKENED PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES. IT ALSO INFLUENCES THE VERY CORE OF OUR DNA” [Wim Hof]

You can join a FREE Mini Class containing 3 videos, one on each of the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method; Breathing, Cold Therapy and Commitment:

  • In video one Wim will teach you how to do the breathing technique, to help you reduce your stress levels and strengthen your immune system.
  • In the second video, Wim will explain how to improve your cold tolerance and how to take a cold shower – you can do it!
  • Video 3 is all about learning to understand the power of the mind, and helping you take back control to live your ideal life.

Food as Medicine and Fasting

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#food-medicine – updated 2 April 2021

The government needs to promote healthy eating and life style to support the immune system – this will also reduce many underlying causes of death (like obesity)
Since over 70% of bodily immune cells are associated with your gut – eating the right food has never been more important.
Here is some good nutritional advice for gut health & life style.
These natural antibiotics do not destroy the biome like anti-biotics do:

We are convinced that the elucidation of immunomodulation by food will help promote good health.”
“In this review, we describe the immunomodulating effects of various food components, including probiotics, prebiotics, polysaccharides, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, peptides, amino acids and polyphenols. Some of these components enhance immune responses, leading to host defense against infection, whereas others inhibit immune responses, thus suppressing allergy and inflammation.

Black seed, sweet orange, and Anthemis hyalina extracts all exhibit antiviral activity against coronavirus
The following substances have been researched for coronavirus disease:: Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs), Flavonoids, Herbs, Quercetin, Houttuynia cordata, Nigella sativa (aka Black Seed), Sweet Orange, Probiotics, Zinc, Catechin, Garlic, Honeysuckle, Licorice and Pelargonium

9 foods helping you to keep your immune system strong 💪
Garlic: fights infections, has immune boosting properties
Broccoli: Packed with vitamins A, C, and E as well as numerous antioxidants
Yogurt: High in protein. Good source of vitamins B12, B2, and D. Contain probiotics needed for proper digestion, detoxification, and immune function.
Red Bell Peppers: Ounce for ounce have 2x more vitamin C than citrus
Ginger: Reduces inflammation which helps with inflammatory ailments and sore throats.
Spinach: Rich in vitamin C, antioxidants, and beta carotene. Beta carotene is believed to help fight infections.

Almonds: High in vitamin E
Green Tea: Contains EGCG which has been shown to enhance immune function
Citrus: high in vitamin C which increases white blood cell production

Anti-Inflammatory Foods
versus
Pro-Inflammatory Foods

“Let food be your medicine” [Hippocrates]
Eating the healthy foods is the basis of your health, considering that 70% of the immune system is based in the gut. It is always best to buy whole fruit and vegetables and prepare the food at home. Cooking is more healthy than frying. Lots of raw food, some fermented, will stimulate the gut. If you can, buy organic, to avoid the agrochemicals and pollutants, especially glyphosate. Search the web – and take your pick.

Here are lists of The dirty dozen & clean fifteen foods
“Clean 15” means: hardly polluted;
the “Dirty Dozen” are heavily polluted.

How to Eat for Life and strengthen your immune system with food short lecture by physician and author Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Fasting boosts the immune system
For millennia, fasting has been one of the anchoring rituals in a variety of spiritual denominations. It can help with inflammation, obesity, insulin resistance, visceral adiposity, and endothelial dysfunction and to Heal Autoimmune Disease – which is the problem why people die with coronavirus. Intermittent fasting has many other health benefits.

Fermented Food Magic

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#fermentation – updated: 21 December 2020

About 3/4 of the human immune system is based in the gut – a complex internal ecosystem, like a rain forest, also known as biome.
Fermentation turns good food into superfood. Fermentation produces “good” bacteria called probiotics, which confer a wealth of benefits to intestinal flora when consumed, enhancing the health of your gut microbiome and boosting your immune system. It is recommended to reseed your inner ecosystem with prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods, like sauerkraut, kimchi & kefir.

So what happens when you take antibiotics or regularly use antibacterial lotions and soaps? You literally kill the good bacteria and the bad ones take over. This, in turn, disturbs the symbiosis (balance) of your microbiome which will lead to digestive issues and immune reactions. Studies have linked everything from autism to most chronic diseases to leaky gut syndrome and improper digestion. 

Kefir is a unique cultured dairy product that is one of the most probiotic rich foods on the planet. Fermented milk products like kefir can help people with milk-related lactose intolerance.  
The Whey in Kefir, sometimes referred to as liquid gold, has long been known to have powerful detoxification qualities

Next time you get sick, think twice about taking an antibiotic and drink kefir instead. A study out of University College Cork in Ireland compared Lactobacillus probiotic preparations […] The researchers discovered that probiotics worked as well as or even better than antibiotic therapy in not only eliminating the infectious agent, but in resolving symptoms!
Consumption of fermented foods has been shown to kill several different types of cancerous tumors in animal studies.
Kefir  has strong anti-inflammatory properties and was found to have both positive effects on allergies and asthma.
More: Kefir Nutritional Facts [from: “What is Kefir?“]

How to make kefir easy yourself (and boost your gut based immune system): buy organic milk + one small bottle of kefir. Add a cup full of kefir to the milk, shake, and keep it in a warm(ish) place. Shake again twice a day; after one or two days the milk has fermented into kefir.
Keep refrigerated and use some of this kefir to start the next one.

the PubMed study “The effect of kefir consumption on human immune system: a cytokine study” confirms:
“Bioactive peptides activate innate immunity by stimulating macrophages, increasing phagocytosis, augmenting NO and cytokine production and boosting the lumen levels of IgG and IgA+ B-lymphocytes.”
“The results indicated that kefir use increased polarization of the immune response towards TH1 type and decreased TH2 type response and accordingly allergic response.”

Top Five Traditional Fermented Anti Aging Foods:
Thanks to the enzymatic boost provided by living microbes in fermented foods, the secret to lifelong vitality may lie in adding these nutritional powerhouses to your dinner plate.
Benefits of eating probiotic-rich fermented foods include:

  • Improved digestion[ii]
  • Boosted immunity[iii]
  • Enhanced weight loss[iv]
  • Treatment and prevention of gastrointestinal diseases[v]
  • Faster healing from colds and flus[vi]
  • Reduced risk of heart disease[vii]
  • Improved symptoms of anxiety and depression[viii]
  • Antiaging effects[ix]

1. Yogurt
2. Fermented Vegetables  Kimchi with antiaging effects, raw sauerkraut and pickled cucumbers, cauliflower and even leafy greens like mustard and collard.
3. Kombucha, a tart, fizzy, fermented tea beverage. Kombucha’s antioxidant activity has been found to be 100 times higher than vitamin C and 25 times higher than vitamin E..[xvii] Kombucha’s high levels of vitamin C boost immunity, and its antioxidant power protects against cell damage, inflammatory diseases, suppressed immunity and tumors.[xviii] 
4. Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV, attributed with antidiabetic and antioxidant effects that make it a useful ally in the fight against diabetes.[xxi] It’s recommended to start with no more than 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted with equal parts water, taken on an empty stomach immediately upon waking 
5. Miso is a fermented soybean paste. miso does, in fact, have the ability to prevent radiation injury.[xxvii]  Made by combining a mash of soybeans and grains with sea salt and koji (a mold starter), the mixture is fermented for three months to three years. [source]

When you buy bread, choose FERMENTED bread. Souerdough is naturally fermented. “Lavain Bread” dough was naturally fermented for 36 hours before baking.

EMF, Electrosmog, 5G and Exosomes

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#5g

Shielding EMF Improves Autoimmune Disease
Electrosmog at both an extremely low-frequency (ELF) or in the radio frequency (RF) range has been found to stimulate a cellular stress response, leading to expression of stress response genes.
Research shows that Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) pathways are susceptible to interference by electrosmog.
The function of another human protein, lysozyme, has been shown to be disrupted by electromagnetic radiation… depletion of lysozyme reduces bacteria-killing ability of human airway sections by approximately fifty percent.
Electrosmog has also been shown to induce DNA strand breakages,
Blocking exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) produces significant symptom changes in 90% of patients with autoimmune disease.
www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/groundbreaking-study-shows-shielding-emf-improves-autoimmune-disease1

According to researchers Marshall and Heil (2017), for instance, “The recent release of WiGig and anti-collision vehicle radars in the 60 GHz region embody a 1000-fold increase in frequency, and photon energy, over the exposures mankind experienced up until the 1950s” (1).

Better safe than sorry: stay away from 5G millimeter waves.
5G Technology and induction of coronavirus in skin cells
publishd on pubmed.gov:
“In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells. DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source.
These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus. To produce these viruses within a cell, it is necessary that the wavelength of external waves be shorter than the size of the cell.
Thus 5G millimeter waves could be good candidates for applying in constructing virus-like structures such as Coronaviruses (COVID-19) within cells.

This is such a strange study – who would want to create coronavirus like structures within cells? These sound just like exosomes – see below:

Exosomes are small (30–150 nm) vesicles containing sophisticated RNA and protein cargo, that are constantly secreted by all cells in vitro and in vivo. Exosomes are changing research due to the intriguing functions within human body, including intercellular communication and signaling. These extracellular vesicles are growing, both in understanding their biological functions and using them towards practical applications such as development of non-invasive diagnostics and advanced therapeutics

According to Dr. Kaufman, what the experts call COVID-19 is not really a disease and a deadly “virus” per se but an “exosome”. Kaufman argued that exosomes are the agents that can be found on the tests using RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription –  Polymerase Chain Reaction), of course the test they use for COVID-19, that is a naturally occurring agent in body cells found in different parts, including the lungs. In his presentation, he explained that exosomes are excreted by the cells when fighting various insults caused by environmental and biological toxins, stress (including fear), infection, harmful radiations, and other kinds of injuries. These exosomes, Kaufman emphasized, do not harm the body but instead provide benefits to our health by facilitating healing.
“the exosome and the virus are essentially indistinguishable from each other.” [source]

Question: if exosomes are part of us humans, transferring genetic material, and if they look just like coronaviruses: would a coronavirus vaccine interfere with the function our exosomes have? Could that unlash unwanted reactions / auto immune diseases?

We Need to CHANGE the NHS

HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#change-nhs – updated: 7 April 2021

The current “health” system is too much influenced by profit orientated interests. We need a public benefit orientated system instead.
Teaching people how to live a more healthy and happy life will improve their health, and we would not need more consultants, doctors, nurses and carers. Prevention is better than any treatment.
In 2012 the largest and most detailed study into hospital deaths ever performed in the UK revealed, that almost 12,000 patients are dying needlessly in NHS hospitals every year because of basic errors by medical staff in the UK. That’s 1000 deaths / month.

A required policy change is encapsulated in this proposed slogan modification for the National Health Service:
“Get Tested ASAP – Receive Early Treatment – Save your Life”
to replace the official slogan “Stay Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives”.

Here is a more Radical Self Care‘ video by Kelly Brogan, showing

  • Why self-care is the most radical form of activism
  • Why healing the body puts us on a spiritual path
  • The core belief that leads to a medical-free life
  • Why it’s never been more important to become your own healer

A study in June 2020 found Five million drug errors kill or seriously harm Britons every year. with a yearly death toll between 1700 and 22,000.
The drugs most likely to cause harm include the NSAIDs, clot-busters or antiplatelet drugs, anti-epilepsy medication, diabetes drugs to lower blood glucose levels, water tablets (diuretics), inhaled corticosteroids and some heart drugs, such as beta blockers.

Antibiotics, killing or preventing the growth of microorganisms, are still routinely administered and prescribed to tackle bacterial inflammation, causing many side effects resulting in breeding super resistant bugs.
Antibiotics are also associated with obesity and kill the “good” bacteria we need in out gut, wiping out the well balanced eco system in the gut, leaving the patient’s immune system severely damaged for the future.
Why are vitamin C and D not on the NICE list, and NHS staff not allowed to administer them?
The universities where doctors are trained need to be reformed, and the governemt’s health policies need to be completely overhauled. Some examples:

  • Traditional treatments and alternative treatments should be allowed and available if they have a record of success, especially if they are cost efficient.
  • Each hospital should get a nutritional expert, advising wards and catering, and updating doctors and nurses on how food can support recovery.
  • Advertisements for foods which are unhealthy could be subject to a 10% health tax, increasing each year by 10%
  • The practice of vaccinations should be reviewed by an independent panel with the aim to minimise risks and side effects.

Vaccination & Immune System

updated: 22 Feb 2021
HealthTruth.info/we-need-to-focus-on-the-immune-system-in-the-next-virus-season/#vaccines

Vaccination is advertised as protecting us from diseases by acivating an immune system response through the creation of antibodies. It interferes with the immune system by increasing immunity against a short term disease on the expenses of a slight reduced immunity to other diseases. Nearly all studies are directly or indirectly financed by the pharmaceutical industry, and the development and testing of vaccines are exempted from the gold standard of other drugs, so it is difficult to find unbiased data.

Vaccines force the immune system to go into inflammatory response but not in the proper manner – so the inflammatory response can remain unabated – confusing the immune system and making the person much more susceptible to other strains and other diseases. Vaccines dysregulate the immune system and weaken it to varying degrees. They can also interfere with our ability to mount an appropriate immune response and they can make us more susceptible to other strains and types of diseases – a phenomenon called virus interference” [source]

On 22 November 2020 an extremely rare study comparing vaccinated with unvaccinated children was published by “The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge” (IPAK), a not-for-profit organization which exists to perform scientific research in the public interest, funded by people.
Read about it HERE and HERE.
Title:
Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates
of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination
by James Lyons-Weiler and Paul Thomas

“We can conclude that … indeed
the vaccinated children appear to be
significantly less healthy than the unvaccinated
.”

Figure 5. Analysis 5. Cumulative office visits in the vaccinated (orange) vs. unvaccinated (blue) patients born into the practice: the clarity of the age-specific differences in the health fates of individuals who are vaccinated (2763) compared to the 561 unvaccinated in patients born into the practice over ten years is most strikingly clear in this comparison of the cumulative numbers of diagnoses in the two patient groups.
The number of office visits for the unvaccinated is adjusted by a sample size multiplier factor (4.9) to the expected value as if the number of unvaccinated in the study was the same as the number of vaccinated. mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm
Table 2) Relative Incidence of Office Visits (RIOV) and Cumulative Rates
of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm

“Large increases in office visits were found among the vaccinated group in this group of respiratory illnesses. Our quartile representation shows consistent increases in the incidence of office visits for allergy, allergic rhinitis, asthma, sinusitis, and breathing issues with increased vaccine acceptance compared to the unvaccinated group (Figure 4A). In the most vaccinated quartile compared to unvaccinated comparison, the relative risks (and lower CI) of office visits related to these conditions were estimated for asthma (16.01), allergic rhinitis (20.64), sinusitis (11.32), and breathing issues (6.52);”
“Because there were no cases of ADHD in the unvaccinated group, the quartile analysis uses a comparison to the least vaccinated decile to avoid division by zero.”
Figure 4F below:…”families with children with autism may be inclined to opt out of the vaccination program, potentially reflecting a signal of informed choice by families excluding them from the higher vaccinated quartile.”

Figure 4 Relative Incidence of Office Visits (RIOV) axis of vaccination percentile vaccine uptake analysis: incidence of study outcome-related office visits relative to that found in the 2763 variably vaccinated compared to the 561 unvaccinated groups for each percentile of vaccine uptake on the x-axis.
(A) Autoimmune respiratory illnesses; (B) attention deficit/hyperactive disorder and behavioral issues; (C) ear pain, otitis media, and eye disorders; (D) autoimmune conditions of the skin and blood; (E) gastroenteritis, weight/eating disorders, and seizure; and (F) development delays in speech, learning, and social interactions and autism spectrum disorder. mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/htm

Vaccination appears to have had the largest impact on anemia and respiratory virus infection on the number of office visits

The authors indicate difficulties conducting this study:
“Given negative social pressures and direct threats of undue consequences on individuals who participate in studies that cast any negative light on vaccines or the practice of vaccination, we respect their anonymity”

Like every treatment, vaccination also has risks:

SEOUL (Reuters)Nine people have died after getting flu shots in South Korea in the past week, raising concerns over the vaccine’s safety just as the seasonal inoculation programme is expanded
“Five new deaths were reported on Wednesday alone, but authorities had no plans to suspend the vaccination programme, unless investigations, including post mortems, revealed a link, which preliminary findings had not.” (21 October)

Intellihub writes: “The CDC, by definition, is a private corporation working on behalf of its stakeholders, which include key players in the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries that profit from the spread of disease, not from real prevention and cures.”
“As more and more ‘vaccination’ propaganda appears in the mainstream media, it is crucial that the American people become aware of the outrageous scam the CDC and the medical industrial complex are running,” warns the AntiCorruption Society.

The results showed a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR of people ≥65 years-old [IVR=Influenza Vaccination Rate]. For the 26 European countries considered, the results indicated that COVID-19 DPMI and the COVID-19 CFR were positively and statistically significantly associated with IVR in people ≥65 years-old in 2019 or latest data available.
There is a significant increase in COVID-19 deaths from eastern to western regions in the world. [source]

“For example, for every 10 million individuals vaccinated in the United Kingdom, 21.5 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome and 5.75 sudden deaths were expected to occur as unrelated coincidental events within 6 weeks of vaccination. 34
WHO: VACCINE SAFETY BASICS, page 77

STUDY: Flu Vaccine Raises Risk of COVID Death – Correlation Confirmed by Scientific Analysis (18 December 2020)
Countries with high coverage of influenza vaccination in the elderly had the highest death toll from the coronavirus pandemic… our findings were corroborated by a peer-reviewed scientific analysis.” 
“It is possible that influenza vaccines alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections; this has been observed with DTP and other vaccines.”

Below is a STRONG warning what is likely to happen if people get the flu vaccine AND a second vaccine (like the coronavirus vaccine) in the same season: the deaths rate could rise significantly

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2flu-vaccines-spike.jpg
Flu vaccine deaths according to the US VAERS spiked in 2010
when a second vaccine against Swine Flu was given.
This is a warning what is likely to happen if people who got the flu shot
will receive an additional vaccine against coronavirus.
This chart was presented by Brian Hooker, CDC whistleblower in an interview

This article discusses previous vaccine safety experiences:

  • People who received the trivalent influenza vaccine during the 2008-2009 flu season were between 1.4 and 2.5 times more likely to get infected with pandemic H1N1 in the spring and summer of 2009 than those who did not get the seasonal flu vaccine
  • A double-blind, placebo-controlled study on ferrets confirmed the results, showing the seasonal influenza vaccine did worsen symptoms after subsequent exposure to the H1N1 virus
  • A 2011 study found the seasonal flu vaccine may weaken children’s immune systems and increase their chances of getting sick from influenza viruses not included in the vaccine
  • In a 2012 study, children receiving inactivated influenza vaccines had a 4.4 times higher relative risk of contracting noninfluenza respiratory virus infections in the nine months following their inoculation
  • A 2020 study found people were 36% more likely to get some form of coronavirus infection if they had been vaccinated against influenza
  • studies have shown that when you get the flu vaccine, you may become more prone to flu caused by influenza viruses that are not contained in the vaccine, or other noninfluenza viral respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus infections
  • Conversely, researchers10,11,12 recently found that common colds caused by the betacoronaviruses OC43 and HKU1 might actually make you more resistant to SARS-CoV-2 infection, and that the resulting immunity might last as long as 17 years.
  • SARS-CoV-2 is one of seven different coronaviruses known to cause respiratory illness in humans.13 Four of them cause symptoms associated with the common cold: 229E, NL63, OC43 and HKU1.
  • In addition to the common cold, OC43 and HKU1 — two of the most commonly encountered betacoronaviruses14 — are also known to cause bronchitis, acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia in all age groups.15 The other three human coronaviruses — which are capable of causing more serious respiratory illness — are SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.

A randomized placebo-controlled trial in children showed that flu shots increased fivefold the risk of acute respiratory infections caused by a group of non-influenza viruses, including coronaviruses. … it is possible that influenza vaccines alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections; this has been observed with DTP and other vaccines.

A systematic review32 by the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews found that to prevent one case of influenza-like illness (defined33 by the World Health Organization as an acute respiratory infection), the NNT [number needed to treat] for inactivated vaccines was 40. To prevent a single case of confirmed influenza, the number needed to vaccinate (NNV) was 71. [source]

Another study Influenza vaccination and respiratory virus interference among Department of Defense personnel found:
“Examining non-influenza viruses specifically, the odds of both coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher when compared to unvaccinated individuals (OR = 1.36 and 1.51, respectively) (Table 5).
Conversely, all other non-influenza respiratory viruses had decreased odds in the vaccinated population”
[ ]

“Over 200 viruses cause influenza and influenza-like illness which produce the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches and pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot tell the two illnesses apart. Both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines might be effective against only Influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.” [Source: Cochrane Summaries].
We can expect EXACTLY the same for coronaviruses: covid-19 will have mutated into around 200 strands after one year (read more in the next chapter) – and then there are also the usual yearly coronaviruses, each with mutations…

The fact checker website fullfact.org wants to debunk the claim: the “flu kills more people than covid-19”, revealing interesting details:
“If we look at the underlying cause of death data for 2019, we can see that 1,213 people died specifically from flu, which is just 4.6% of the 26,342 who died from either influenza or pneumonia.”
That means: 95.4% in the “influenza / pneumonia” category died from pneumonia – or:
for each flu death, 19 people die of pneumonia.
So a pneumonia vaccine would make MUCH more sense than any flu vaccine.“the ONS reports the number of “deaths involving COVID-19”, which means the number of death certificates that mention Covid-19 somewhere, whether or not it was the underlying cause.
Pneumonia is usually caused by a bacterial infection, but it can also be caused by a virus such as flu or the one that causes Covid-19… many people who die with Covid-19 have pneumonia as well, so the ONS explains that “deaths where both were mentioned have been counted only in the COVID-19 category”.
More interesting information about how fact checkers manipulate data is in the Covid-19 Statistics article in “We’ve Got It All Wrong…

The US Department of Justice issues a report on vaccine injuries and deaths every quarter. In 2015, there were 211 severe cases for the 3 month period from 5/16/2015. 86 of the settlements were listed in this report, 65 of the 86 settlements were for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot; the majority of flu shot injuries were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
Here is a short video debunking the flu shot narrative.

First published in April 2015. The H1N1 vaccine fiasco ordered by the (corrupt) WHO Director General is of relevance to the current debate on a COVID-19 vaccine.

GlobalResearch reports on 20 April 2015:
“The 2009 swine flu vaccine caused severe brain damage in over 800 children across Europe, and the UK government has now agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to those victims as part of a vaccine injury settlement.This is the same swine flu vaccine that the entire mainstream media ridiculously insists never causes any harm whatsoever”
“The vaccine caused narcolepsy and cataplexy in hundreds of children. Both are signs of neurological damage caused by vaccine additives which include mercury, aluminum, MSG, antibiotics and even formaldehyde.”
in 2009, the Norwegian health authorities urged everyone, not just at-risk groups, to receive vaccinations after the World Health Organization designated swine flu a pandemic.
“Norway has seen more than 170 reported cases of children developing narcolepsy after receiving the Pandemrix vaccine,” reports the Global Post. “The government has so far paid $13 million to 86 victims, including 60 children…”
“those children who are damaged by vaccines end up being big profit centers for the same pharmaceutical companies that damaged them in the first place.”

Please read more in the next chapter: “Covid-19 Vaccine?

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) about vaccination:
“In the future, we will eliminate the soul with medicine. Under the pretext of a ‘healthy point of view’, there will be a vaccine by which the human body will be treated as soon as possible directly at birth, so that the human being cannot develop the thought of the existence of soul and Spirit.
To materialistic doctors, will be entrusted the task of removing the soul of humanity. As today, people are vaccinated against this disease or that disease, so in the future, children will be vaccinated with a substance that can be produced precisely in such a way that people, thanks to this vaccination, will be immune to being subjected to the “madness” of spiritual life. He would be extremely smart, but he would not develop a conscience, and that is the true goal of some materialistic circles.
With such a vaccine, you can easily make the etheric body loose in the physical body. Once the etheric body is detached, the relationship between the universe and the etheric body would become extremely unstable, and man would become an automaton, for the physical body of man must be polished on this Earth by spiritual will. So, the vaccine becomes a kind of arymanique force; man can no longer get rid of a given materialistic feeling. He becomes materialistic of constitution and can no longer rise to the spiritual”

The above quote is from the Rudolf Steiner lecture series “Fall of the spirits of Darkness” “Changes in Humanity’s Make-up”  (Lecture 5), archives GA177

Is the new mRNA gene therapy technology used in Covid-19 vaccines safe? mRNA vaccines have never been licensed before.
RNA is the only molecule known to recapitulate all biochemical functions of life: definition, control, and transmission of genetic information. Since the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-1) outbreak in 2002 there have been numerous coronavirus vaccine animal studies conducted: either the animals were not completely protected, became severely ill with accelerated autoimmune conditions, or died, primarily attributed to what is called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE).
The SARS-CoV-2 virus (which can cause covid-19 symptoms) is from the same cronavirus family as SARS-1.
Experimental vaccines for SARS, MERS, HIV, and other diseases have not been proven effective and safe for humans.

mRNA vaccines are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles (polyethylene glycol). This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would attack and destroy kill any foreign material. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to imbalance certain immune responses and can induce allergies and even autoimmune diseases.
Neither Pfizer/BioNTech nor Moderna have ‘completely’ disclosed everything in their vaccines.
Normally a vaccines would need to be tested AT LEAST five years.
Fast-track policy is a recipe for mass disaster.
Vaccine manufacturers unlimited freedom to create, develop, and market vaccines without any liability.

The daily % increase of Health Impact Events in the table below is concerning: 0.44%, 0.82%, 1.34%, 2.17%, 2.79%

Why no Conspiracies here?

When your house is on fire, you don’t call the police to investigate, but the fire brigade to extinguish the fire, evacuate the building to save lives and prevent further damage.
If the fire is a burning deep frying oil pan, do NOT pour water on it, as it will make it worse, but suffocate it with a fire blanket!
Investigating “what caused the fire?” or “who started the fire?” or “who paid the one starting the fire?” (conspiracy theories) need to wait until the fire is extinguished.

The same applies to the coronavirus “pandemic”: we first need to make sure we use the correct treatments and procedures to ensure the situation will not get worse (like using ventilators or lockdown).
How the virus came into existence and who is behind it will surface in due course, and any misconduct will hopefully be dealt with by proper investigations and courtss after we have dealt with the virus – and the virus “cure”: politics.

Inform and empower yourself; “knowledge is power”, research INDEPENDENT science, and check any government advisers [& any research institute, newspaper or TV station] for bias, for example on Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Here is an in-depth analysis by the OFF-Guardian:
