Health Problems That are Triggered by Poor Gut Health Because your gut controls so many areas of your health, you don’t have to have typical gut symptoms to have gut problems. These are a few of the far-reaching health problems your gut has influence over. 1. Autoimmune conditions As of now, there are around 100 recognized autoimmune conditions and about 40 other diseases that have an autoimmune component. Since your immune system mainly resides in your gut, it is no surprise that a damaged microbiome and leaky gut syndrome are preconditions for autoimmunity. 2. Mental health disorders The gut-brain axis […]
Understanding Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Diabetes occurs when your body no longer makes or uses insulin as it’s intended to. Insulin is a naturally occurring substance in the body, but some people don’t make enough of it or their cells become insulin resistant. Diabetic patients must manage higher than normal blood sugar (or glucose) levels in the body. Diabetes is classified into two types (Type 1 and Type 2). Diabetics of both types require medicines to normalize blood glucose levels. If the doctor says you’re diabetic, he or she will prescribe drugs for Type 1 and Type 2 […]
We still don’t know if a lab accident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology caused the COVID-19 global pandemic. But now we do know for certain that there was a cover-up — and that private organizations and the U.S. government either hid information or misled the public regarding several key details about the kinds of research that the U.S. taxpayers were indirectly funding at the Wuhan labs. Lawrence Tabak, the principal deputy director of the National Institutes of Health and the deputy ethics counselor of the agency, wrote to Congress this week informing it that NIH had indeed funded “gain […]
Outspoken conservative political commentator Candace Owens has suggested the US military invade Australia in order to free its people “suffering under a totalitarian regime” while drawing comparisons to Hitler, Stalin and the Taliban. Owens made the comments on her self-titled Daily Wire TV show earlier this week, declaring Covid-19 had propelled the planet into an “ideological and psychological” global war. “When do we deploy troops to Australia? When do we invade Australia and free an oppressed people who are suffering under a totalitarian regime? When do we spend trillions of dollars to spread democracy in Australia?” she asked. While US […]
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the first generic drug to instantly treat people with severe hypoglycemia, or those experiencing very low blood sugar levels. The kind of levels that leave people unconscious or confused, the administration says. This comes especially in handy for diabetic patients whose blood-glucose levels drop to dangerously-low levels. There are often times when a patient’s blood-sugar levels drop so quickly that they require assistance from a friend or family member to help bring those levels back up. A generic could drug make it more affordable for patients and families with loved ones […]
But the rapid proliferation of the vaccine, under contracts negotiated between the company and governments, has unfolded behind a veil of strict secrecy, allowing for little public scrutiny of Pfizer’s burgeoning power, even as demand surges amid new negotiations for one of the world’s most sought-after products. The Manhattan-based pharmaceutical giant has maintained tight levels of secrecy about negotiations with governments over contracts that can determine the fate of populations. The “contracts consistently place Pfizer’s interests before public health imperatives,” said Zain Rizvi, the researcher who wrote the report. Public Citizen found common themes across contracts, including not only secrecy […]
An expert group advising the Food and Drug Administration is scheduled to meet Oct. 26 to hear data about the safety and efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine. The FDA will decide whether to authorize its use. A vaccine advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is scheduled to meet Nov. 2 and 3 to weigh a recommendation for use. If the CDC director signs off on a recommendation for use, the vaccine can be administered to kids. Some of those differences were detailed in a planning guide sent to local jurisdictions that was obtained by The […]

Downing Street has warned of “challenging” months ahead as UK coronavirus cases reached their highest level since mid-July. The reported number of Covid cases in the UK increased steadily through October and reached 49,156 on Monday, the highest reported since 17 July and a 16% rise in new cases over the past week.
