  • Brain Regeneration: Why it's Real & How to Do it

    https://greenmedinfo.com/blog/brain-regeneration-why-its-real-how-do-it Have you ever wished you could regenerate those brain cells you sacrificed in college? Do you fear that your aging brain is in a perpetual state of decline? Medical science is being rewritten to show that we CAN improve the health of our brain, and that repairing damage is not only possible, it's something anyone can do It is a commonly held misconception that the brain is beyond repair. Even the medical establishment has asserted that once we kill brain cells, they are gone forever. The fact is, the brain can repair itself, and as science is now proving, there is real benefit to simple practices that can help keep our brains sharp and elastic throughout our lifetime. Rewriting the Story of Brain Health The field of cognitive neuroscience is relatively new - only around one hundred years old - so it's no surprise that we are constantly arriving at a newer and better understanding of how the neural circuitry of the human brain supports overall brain functioning. For most of those one hundred years, it was believed that once damaged, the brain could not regenerate. Brain cells were finite, and any loss or injury would be suffered as a deficiency for the rest of that person's life. This created a false belief that the brain is essentially in a perpetual state of decline. Although compelling evidence to the contrary was presented as early as 1960, medical dogma was (and is) slow to change. It wasn't until the 1980's when Fernando Nottebohm's research at Rockefeller University clearly indicated that neurogenesis - production of new nerve cells, aka neurons - was taking place in the adult vertebrate brain. The next big step in this scientific evolution would take more than thirty years. However, the pace of our understanding of how the brain is wired was about to take a quantum leap. Our Elastic Brain The growth of new neurons in an adult, mammalian brain was first seen in 1992, when scientists isolated neural stem cells from mice in a Petri dish. This regeneration was then replicated thousands of times in a variety of published studies over the next twenty-five years. It is now accepted in the medical scientific community that the adult brain is capable of growing new neurons and glial cells, something previously disbelieved by the medical establishment. The brain is now considered to be resilient, pliable - plastic. The term neuroplasticity refers to the ability of the brain to "rewire" itself through practice of a desired skill. It is the combination of new cells and new learning that creates this magic. When fresh nerve cells are well-stimulated (i.e., trained through specific learning exercises) they make new connections. In other words, they become healthy brain cells that contribute to learning and the development of new skills. Just like the muscles of the body, when the brain is well-nourished and stimulated through proper exercise, it heals and grows. And with proper care and feeding, this amazing brain regeneration can occur throughout life. To help make this a "no-brainer", GreenMedInfo has compiled a simple list of ways you can safeguard brain health, stimulate new brain cell growth, and even heal the brain. 1.  Get Lots of Physical Exercise When you hear the phrase "train your brain", you probably don't think of lifting weights. Turns out, physical exercise is one of the best things you can do for your body, and your brain. The brain benefits of exercise are two-fold. First, the brain is a voracious consumer of glucose and oxygen, with no ability to store excess for later use. A continual supply of these nutrients is needed to maintain optimal functioning. Physical exercise increases the blood flow to the brain, delivering a boost of fresh oxygen and glucose to hungry brain cells. A 2014 study showed that just 30 minutes of moderate cardio was enough to boost cognitive functioning in adult brains of all ages. But the benefits don't stop there. Exercise is believed to stimulate hippocampal neurogenesis: new cell growth in the region of the brain associated with long-term memory and emotions. Healthy cell growth in this region is important to the aging brain, and believed to help prevent cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. 2.  Use Stress Reduction Techniques Our modern world runs on stress, so the need to unwind is easy to understand. What you might not be aware of, is just how damaging continual immersion in the fight or flight hormones of stress can be to your brain. Stress is one of the top factors in age-related cognitive decline. This makes engaging in regularly scheduled leisure activities not just a fun thing to do, but an important step towards ensuring optimal brain health. You don't need to look far to find ways to de-stress. Let your interests guide you. The key to picking brain-healthy pastimes is to avoid passive activities like watching TV, and instead choose stimulating hobbies that engage the brain through patterns, puzzles, and problem-solving. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry found that activities such as playing games, reading books, and crafts like quilting and knitting reduced rates of cognitive impairment by up to 50 percent. Engaging with art also ranks high on the list of brain-healthy hobbies. Studies prove that once again, it's not enough to be a passive observer. To get the brain-boost, we must engage. In a German study reported in the journal PLOS One, researchers studied two groups: a group who observed art, and a group that produced art. The study concluded that compared to those who observed art, the art producers demonstrated increased interactivity between the frontal and parietal cortices of the brain. This increased brain connectivity translates to enhanced psychological resilience in the group of art producers. In other words, their ability to resist the negative effects of stress improved. Looking for a more low-key way to unwind? How about playing beautiful music or sitting in quiet contemplation? Meditation has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and even build resistance to feelings of anxiety and depression. And while listening to music may seem like a passive activity, research suggests that the act of listening to musical patterns facilitates brain neurogenesis. Both meditation and listening to music affect the secretion of key hormones which enhance brain plasticity, thus changing the very way we respond to stress. Talk about good medicine! 3. Take Strategic Supplements Turmeric You probably know at least one person who raves about the health benefits of turmeric. This deep, orange root has been used as a panacea for everything from soothing joint pain and calming inflammation, to lowering the risk of heart disease. And our awareness of the benefits of this ancient medicinal herb continues to grow. Turmeric is an example of a remyelinating compound, which denotes a substance with proven nerve-regenerative effects. Remyelinating compounds work to repair the protective sheath around the nerve bundle known as myelin, an area often damaged in autoimmune and vaccine-induced disorders. Research shows that even small doses of these restorative substances can produce significant nerve regeneration. The Western model of pharmaceutical intervention has created a culture that seeks to identify and isolate the "active ingredient" of an organic substance. What this fails to account for is that organic compounds often work in concert: isolates by themselves may lack a critical key that another plant element provides. Cucurmin is the isolated active ingredient in turmeric, however, new research shows that another element found in turmeric has magical properties of its own. In an exciting study published in the journal Stem Cell Research & Therapy, researchers found that a little-known component within turmeric, Ar-tumerone, may make "a promising candidate to support regeneration in neurologic disease." The study found that when brain cells were exposed to ar-tumerone, neural stem cells increased in number and complexity, indicating a healing effect was taking place. This effect was replicated in rats, who when exposed to ar-tumerone saw increased neural stem cell production and the generation of healthy new brain cells. Green Tea A 2014 paper studying the active compounds in green tea (known as catechins, a main class of micronutrient), determined that green tea catechins are not only antioxidant and neuroprotective, they actually stimulate the brain to produce more neurons. Because of this therapeutic effect on damaged regions of the brain, green tea has been shown to have exciting implications in the treatment of 'incurable' neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's disease. This prompted researchers to declare green tea catechins  "...a highly useful complementary approach.." in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Further investigation of green tea examined a combination of blueberry, green tea and carnosine, and found it to promote growth of new neurons and brain stem cells, in an animal model of neurodegenerative disease. Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo Biloba is considered a powerhouse in the herbal medicine pharmacopoeia, and its implications for brain health are equally potent. Ginkgo has demonstrated at least 50 distinct health benefits, and its medicinal value is documented in the treatment of more than 100 different diseases. There are numerous studies on Ginkgo's ability to stimulate levels of a critical brain protein called BDNF: brain-derived neurotrophic factor. This protein affects healing in damaged regions of the brain and is essential in the regulation, growth and survival of brain cells, making it especially important for long-term memory. Ginkgo is so effective that a 2006 paper published in the European Journal of Neurology found it to be as useful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease as the blockbuster drug, Donepezil. Recently, a new mechanism behind Ginkgo biloba's brain healing properties came to light with the publication of an article in Cell and Molecular Neurobiology. Researchers determined that Ginkgo is effective, in part, due to its ability to modulate neural stem cells (NSC's) into the type of cell that is necessary in the specific region of the brain where the BDNF proteins are active. NSC's are multipotent cells; they have the amazing ability to shapeshift into any of the many different phenotypes of cells that make up the brain. Ginkgo stimulates the growth of the right cell phenotype for the affected region of the brain, giving our brain exactly what's needed, where it's needed. Now that's intelligent medicine! 4. Eat Your Veggies Want to stimulate brain cell regrowth while you're having lunch? Add some freshly steamed broccoli to your plate! Science has added a substance called sulforaphane, found in sulfur-rich vegetables such as broccoli, to the growing list of neuritogenic substances that have been documented to stimulate nerve growth in the brain. The study, published in the journal Genesis, reveals that sulforaphane, in addition to stimulating new nerve growth, has demonstrated significant healing properties as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, as well as preventing disease and death of healthy neurons. Adding to the excitement surrounding these findings, researchers observed the beneficial effect on neural stem cells that results in their differentiation to specific, useful types of neurons, lending powerful support to the hypothesis that sulforaphane stimulates brain repair. Vegetables containing sulforaphane include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, horseradish, kale, kohlrabi, mustard leaves, radish, turnips, watercress, and bok choy. For therapeutic benefit, try to consume at least 3 cups per day, raw or cooked. 5. Employ Continuous Learning Aging is often associated with cognitive decline, both in research and anecdotal evidence. However, a growing body of literature shows that retaining a sharp, lucid brain means never retiring our critical thinking skills. The need to continually challenge and expand our thinking was demonstrated in the aforementioned 2011 study published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry. In this study, the leisure time activities of a group of older adults (ages 70-89) were monitored for effect on mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The study determined that the level of complexity of the activity was key to its effectiveness at preventing MCI. Working with computers, reading books, and activities associated with patterns and problem-solving contributed to a significant decrease in the odds of developing of MCI. Less stimulating activities showed no statistical effect. This stresses the importance of feeling challenged and stimulated by the activities we pursue as we age. These findings were reinforced by a 2014 study of nearly 3,000 volunteers, spanning more than a decade. This study examined the potential long-term benefit of cognitive training in older adults. Results showed that participants demonstrated enhanced brain processing speed and reasoning skills for up to ten years after the training was completed. These tangible brain benefits spilled over into daily life and were measured in the participant's ability to complete normal daily tasks, such as personal finances, meal preparation, and personal care routines. Said of the study, "The idea is, the more stimulating your environment, the more you're increasing the complexity of your brain."

  • Smart Cities and 15-minute cities: We must stop allowing these criminals to slowly walk us into techno-tyranny

    https://expose-news.com/2024/05/18/smart-cities-and-15-minute-cities-we-must-stop/ You’ve most likely heard of the terms “Smart City” and “15-minute city” but how many know exactly what they are? In the following article, the author of ‘How to Opt-Out of the Technocratic State‘ Derrick Bronze answers the questions: What exactly is a “Smart City” and how does it relate to a “15-minute city”? And what does any of this have to do with individual liberty and freedom of movement? And, finally, what do we plan to do about it? Understanding Smart Cities, 15-Minute Cities, and How We Win By Derrick Bronze You’ve likely heard the terms “Smart City” or, its more recent cousin, “15-minute city,” but do you truly understand what these concepts call for? Do you know which organisations are responsible for promoting the ideas? More importantly, are you prepared to survive and thrive in the face of these liberty-crushing plans? To prepare for any potential future emergency, we must better understand what we are facing. Let’s start by understanding what is meant when we speak of “Smart Cities.” The term typically describes an urban area which is outfitted with 5G towers (and soon, 6G) which allow the speed and bandwidth needed for autonomous vehicles, robot assistants, and sensors in the street to moderate street lights and issue environmental warning alerts. All of this would be powered by Artificial Intelligence (“AI”). Collectively, the sensors, devices, and infrastructure are known as the so-called “Internet of Things” (“IoT”). To put it simply, the IoT is the network of digital devices, vehicles, appliances and other physical objects embedded with sensors that allow them to collect and share data. This real-time data collection is central to smart city initiatives which claim to be stepping stones towards a digital utopia. Devices connected to the IoT range from smartphones to smart appliances to smart homes or buildings with smart thermostats. Even wearables like smartwatches, earbuds, and fitness-tracking devices form part of the IoT. A simple rule of thumb is that if your device is claimed to be “smart,” or has Wi-Fi or Bluetooth capabilities it can be connected to the IoT. National Geographic describes a smart city as “a city in which a suite of sensors (typically hundreds or thousands) is deployed to collect electronic data from and about people and infrastructure so as to improve efficiency and quality of life.” NatGeo notes that residents and city workers may need to use apps to access city services, receive and issue reports of outages, accidents, and crimes, pay taxes, fees, etc. They also emphasise the potential use cases for reducing energy usage and making a city more “sustainable.” Overall, smart cities are being sold to the public as a futuristic cityscape with features like streetlights that automatically turn off when no one is around, or  AI algorithms which optimise trash collection routes. We are also being told that by combining AI with sensors and cameras everywhere, we will have autonomous, or driverless, vehicles which will lower traffic congestion. Unfortunately, the vision for a smart city is actually another step towards losing our liberties and privacy. In April 2018, the American Civil Liberties Union released a guide detailing important questions that should be asked by city officials seeking to join the smart city movement. The guide, ‘How to Prevent Smart Cities from Turning to Surveillance Cities’, was written by Matt Cagle, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California. In January 2019, I asked Mr. Cagle to comment on the growth of smart cities and the technology behind them. Here’s what he told me: When we talk about smart city technology, or the Internet of Things, in the government context, what we’re really talking about is electronics that are maybe small and cheap that can be placed around the city and that essentially can be designed to collect information, whether it’s visual information or audio information or information about say whether a parking space is occupied. But before any smart city technology is acquired or deployed, it’s really important that a city working with its community determine whether that technology is actually smart for the city to do. Smart city technology can be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It can be another way for the government to amass information that it may not have wanted to collect for law enforcement purposes but that might be vulnerable to that sort of use later or that they may not have wanted to collect for immigration purposes but that could potentially be vulnerable to that later. And again, this technology is often going to be collected by companies that have developed it. So, it’s really important for the city and the community to be on the same page about who’s going to own this data as we go forward with this project, who’s going to be able to sell this data, and at the end of the day are communities in control of these technologies. Not only are smart cities a privacy nightmare but, if the city planners have their way, you may soon find yourself unable to drive without paying fees, or penalised for jaywalking thanks to ubiquitous facial recognition cameras. What is a 15-Minute City? This brings us to the concept of 15-minute cities. First discussed by a city planner named Carlos Moreno at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in 2015, 15-minute cities is essentially the idea that all the resources within a community should be within a 15-minute walk. As is typical with most ideas promoted by the UN – it doesn’t sound all that horrible in isolation. I mean, who doesn’t want to be able to walk to get their groceries or to the local community centre for a cookout? In fact, some of you may already be living in areas with everything within 15 minutes of your home. Then what’s the problem, you might ask? Well, when you look beyond the buzzwords you begin to see that, much like smart cities, 15-minute cities have the potential to be used as a way to limit freedom of movement, freedom of speech and privacy. Many people have also come to fear that concepts like smart cities and 15-minute cities are really about socially engineering people to stop driving their own private vehicles – all in the name of the climate, of course. Look no further than a brand new book by Carlos Moreno, which claims to offer “techniques to change the habits of automobile-dependent city residents”. It doesn’t get much clearer than that. Moreno has been successful in pushing his idea into the mainstream, with Paris, France first adopting the idea in 2020. But it wasn’t until late 2022 and early 2023 that resistance to 15-minute cities became a public issue. In February 2023,  an estimated 2,000 demonstrators gathered in central Oxford, England for a protest against the creation of what is known as a low-traffic neighbourhood, or LTN. To implement the LTN, Oxford officials voted to introduce six “traffic filters” which are intended to limit the use of cars in residential areas of the city during certain hours. Automatic License Plate Reader (“ALPR”) cameras will scan license plates to fine drivers from outside the county of Oxfordshire who enter these areas during high-traffic times. Of course, the media has done their best to label the opponents of 15-minute cities as “far right” conspiracy theorists. However, due to the pushback from residents and international attention, the Oxford council recently voted to remove mentions of “15-minute cities” from their city planning documents. While the council voted to remove the phrase from their documents, they made it clear that they still plan to continue their vision of a walkable city with limits on private vehicles. Louise Upton, the cabinet member for planning at Oxford City Council told The Times that removing the phrase would make “no noticeable difference to our planning decisions.” Oxford is not the only city taking steps to implement driving restrictions or using digital technology to catalogue the behaviour of citizens. Officials of a Canadian municipality recently voted to require tourists to pay $30 Canadian dollars to get a quick-response code (“QR code”) to enter or leave the archipelago known as Îles-de-la-Madeleine. The 12,000 plus residents will be required to show their driver’s licence to enter or leave. In 2022, Venice, Italy implemented a similar policy with the announcement that they will charge a fee to tourists who visit the historic canals for a single day. The measure is said to be a response to the notorious tourism which overwhelms the region. While the fee is only about US$6 and only applies on the 29 busiest days of the year, people are required to register and, once again, obtain a QR code via a smartphone. This strikes me as yet another way to corral people into the digital prison being built around humanity. The World Economic Forum and the United Nations It should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the WEF and the UN are two of the bigger proponents of the 15-minute city and Smart City projects. In October 2019, the WEF and the G20 nations launched the G20 Global Smart Cities Alliance on Technology Governance. The Smart Cities Alliance website states that the alliance “establishes and advances global policy standards to help accelerate best practices, mitigate potential risks, and foster greater openness and public trust.” The alliance claims to represent more than 200,000 cities and local governments, as well as companies, startups, research institutions and civil society communities. The WEF also reminds us that the push towards smart-15-minute cities is meant to accomplish the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 11, which is focused on making cities and human settlements “inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”. In the interest of this goal – and the rest of the UN SDGs – cities are working to implement a range of so-called smart technologies. It is these technologies and concepts which will be used to corral humanity into tightly controlled, tracked and traced urban environments. What is the Solution? While these technocrats meet night and day to plan out their near-future dystopia for humanity, we need to ask ourselves what we are doing to plan out our future. If humanity is to chart our own course, we must stop allowing these criminals to slow walk us into techno-tyranny. One thing everyone can do is to ask yourself what you would do if your city or town started requiring a QR code or a digital ID to access the grocery store? Or maybe the local hospital? Maybe, as we saw during the covid-19 crisis, your place of business might require a digital ID to get paid and your bank might require it to cash the check. If your place of employment or city implemented vaccine mandates or PCR test requirements, it’s likely they might install similar measures in the near future. Coming up with a plan of how you will navigate these tough situations is an absolute must. Talk with your family, your friends, your neighbours, your church, etc. Imagine these scenarios and ask each other how you might be able to support each other in these situations. Another important component of thriving in the face of rising tyranny is community. Again, this can be your immediate family, your activist circle, your neighbours, co-workers or church members. The point is that we all need a support network to make it through these times. We need to have networks to trade food, services, seeds, skills and other goods which don’t require injections, QR codes, digital IDs or other invasive measures. If you find yourself lacking in the community department, I highly encourage you to use the Freedom Cell Network website to search the maps to find people and groups in your area. In-person meet-ups are always going to be superior to digital connections. In fact, I encourage you to attend the upcoming ‘Exit and Build Land Summit 4′ to meet like-minded freedom lovers who are having this very conversation. The summit takes place next week 16-20 May in Bastrop, Texas (outside of Austin) and is organised by John Bush, the co-founder of The Freedom Cell Network and the founder of Live Free Academy. John and his wife Rebecca are bringing together homesteaders, perma culturists, regenerative ranchers, voluntaryists, activists, independents, survivalists and entrepreneurs to discuss how we can build communities that can withstand the attacks of the Technocratic State. Whatever you do, it is imperative to spread this information as far and wide as possible and start planning for the future. Your children, their children and their children are depending on us to stand up and take decisive action. They are counting on us to leave a better, freer world behind for them. It’s time we stand together. It’s time to Exit and Build.

  • NHS’ coordinated plan to break doctors and nurses who raise concerns about patient safety

    https://expose-news.com/2024/05/17/nhs-coordinated-plan-to-break-whistleblowers/ Over the last few days, The Telegraph has been running a series of articles about NHS whistleblowers who have had their careers and lives ruined while trying to raise concerns over patient safety. More than 50 doctors and nurses have told The Telegraph they have been targeted after raising concerns about upwards of 170 patient deaths and nearly 700 cases of poor care.  Instead of trying to fix the problems, NHS bosses are spending millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money hiring law firms and private eyes to investigate them. One of The Telegraph articles reveals how the NHS uses a four-step playbook to break whistleblowers. If we want to understand why some NHS staff did not speak out during the covid era,  perhaps we should consider whether the culture of fear that the NHS has fomented has played a role. The following is an abridged version the article ‘The four-step ‘playbook’ the NHS uses to break whistleblowers’ written by Janet Eastham and Gordon Rayner published by The Telegraph on 15 May 2024. NHS managers use a playbook of tactics to silence whistleblowers that is “designed to break you,” according to doctors who have tried to raise patient safety concerns. A Telegraph investigation has found so many similarities in the way different NHS trusts and clinics deal with whistleblowers that many doctors believe the problem is systemic. The doctors complain of bullying and harassment, both from managers and colleagues, which they claim creates a culture of cover-up. Law firms and private investigators are also often brought in to investigate the whistleblower, who is then told they are being suspended. Years of internal investigations, disciplinary hearings and legal battles typically follow, until medics succumb to the personal, professional and financial pressure and quit. Many doctors who have decades of expertise in their field and distinguished careers are reduced to depression and suicidal thoughts by the situation they find themselves in. Some sign non-disclosure agreements, enabling them to return to work if they promise to keep their mouths shut, others try to fight back through the High Court or employment tribunals, and others leave the NHS for private hospitals or quit the medical profession altogether. The pattern is not dissimilar to the punitive measures – including suspensions and contract terminations – employed by the Post Office against its sub-postmasters and employees during the Horizon IT scandal. Step 1: Investigate the whistleblower The evidence collected by The Telegraph suggests NHS employers are more likely to investigate the conduct of whistleblowers than the issue they have raised. Of the 52 medics interviewed by this newspaper, 41 said their own conduct was put under investigation. They were all subjected to counter-allegations after raising concerns. Only 28 – barely half – said their employer carried out a patient safety investigation, and where patient safety investigations were conducted, the vast majority – 24 out of 28 – had serious concerns about the way the probes were conducted. External law firms and private investigators, some of whom are ex-policemen, are often brought in to investigate the whistleblower’s own activities. The formal process for investigating doctors usually begins with a maintaining high professional standards (“MHPS”) investigation, which is supposed to be wrapped up in six weeks, but which often lasts much longer. Martyn Pitman, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, was placed under an MHPS probe after he raised concerns about maternity care. He said he was warned by his British Medical Association representative that it would take between six and 18 months. He said the BMA rep told him that trusts “deliberately extend it because they want to break you. They want to absolutely destroy you.” Another consultant told The Telegraph the MHPS process “gives hospital management unbelievable power with no accountability.  “Essentially the NHS trusts investigate themselves, mark their own homework, and they become the judge, jury and executioner for the whistleblower all in one go.” Serryth Colbert, a maxillofacial surgeon, said the process “keeps you walking on the cliff-edge threatening to push you over”. He said: “Doctors break. Many drink to excess to drown their sorrows, most feel sorry for themselves and eventually become depressed, or suffer PTSD and become clinically depressed from the ostracisation and overnight loss of identity when you are kicked out from the job you love.” Step 2: Bully and intimidate Of the 52 medics interviewed by The Telegraph, 45 reported being the victims of victimisation, harassment, discrimination, bullying or intimidation after they blew the whistle. Sixteen were inappropriately referred to psychological or psychiatric services. Five were victims of vexatious referrals to the police, social services and HM Revenue and Customs, with each found to have no case to answer. They said the bullying and intimidation appeared to be aimed not only at weakening their resolve to continue fighting but also at damaging them psychologically. Step 3: Weaponise General Medical Council referrals Referral to the General Medical Council – the regulator for doctors – is routinely used as part of NHS managers’ kit bag for silencing whistleblowers, it is claimed. The Telegraph has spoken to 22 whistleblower doctors who were between them referred to the GMC a total of 30 times. To date, only two of the referrals resulted in a fitness to practise hearing and neither was upheld. Nine of the doctors claimed to have been threatened with a referral to the GMC if they didn’t withdraw their complaint, or stop raising patient safety concerns. This group includes Dr. Peter Duffy, who won his employment tribunal against University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust in 2018, was anonymously referred to the GMC a total of seven times. Three of these referrals proceeded to an investigation, but none to a full hearing. In every case, the regulator concluded he had no case to answer. Morecambe Bay said that the trust “has never referred Mr Duffy to the GMC nor encouraged others to do so.” The former consultant urologist told The Telegraph that after the seventh and final GMC referral, his lawyer advised him to take early retirement and request voluntary erasure from the medical register. He explained: “I was told by my solicitor, ‘there may be no end to this. If the GMC throws the case out, you may find they report you again, there is no limit to how many times you can be reported. “‘You can’t sue the person or the organisation reporting, because it has absolute privilege. If you’re reporting something to the GMC, you can allege whatever you want. And our fear is that this is just going to carry on until they find a weak spot … you’re a sitting duck’.” In 2014, retired judge Sir Anthony Hooper was commissioned by the GMC to conduct a review into its treatment of whistleblowers. Sir Anthony was concerned that GMC referrals could be made as “an act of retaliation” and that “the GMC unwittingly becomes the instrument of the employer in its campaign against the doctor”. He commented: “It would be both cruel and counterproductive to require doctors to speak up and then unfairly or inappropriately damage or destroy their careers when they do so.” To mitigate this risk, the regulator required trusts to specify if the doctor being referred had raised patient safety concerns and if these concerns had been investigated. But The Telegraph can reveal that many institutions are simply failing to tick the box. Out of the 22 doctors who were referred to the GMC, 14 of them said the referrer did not correctly identify them as a whistleblower. Step 4: Demotion, disciplinary action and dismissal Aside from GMC referrals and MHPS investigations, hospitals and clinics can employ a suite of punishments to silence doctors or force them out if they dare to raise concerns about patient safety. Of the 52 whistleblowers interviewed by The Telegraph, 25 faced disciplinary action, 19 were suspended and 16 were dismissed. As one nurse who was excluded from work after raising concerns said: “My mum and dad are so terrified. I’m their son who they’re so proud of, who went to university as a nurse. “And now in the home town we live in, I am known for being this bully, and suspended and pending investigation. “It is horrific what they have put me through. I haven’t murdered anyone! “Even if I had committed a serious crime – rather than just protecting my patients – I still deserve a fair trial, which is more than I am getting now.” Others faced more subtle forms of punishment: 15 were demoted, 16 had adverse changes to their terms and conditions, 11 were given a pay cut,12 had extra workloads heaped on them and three said they were left with no option but to resign. Two experienced consultant anaesthetists who raised concerns claim they were instructed to reapply for their positions as educational supervisors. Despite each having over 10 years’ experience in trainee supervision, their hospital appointed two junior consultants in their place. “It was clear that it was a fix,” one said. To add insult to injury, the whistleblowers also had their annual leave allowance reduced. “They brought in a new way of calculating it which only applied to us,” one of the consultants explained, adding: “They also refused me leave despite me complying with all the rules.” For those who would like to read the full article, we have attached a copy below.

  • House Democrats just voted to REPLACE American voters with illegal immigrants who will now be represented in Congress

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2024-05-16-democrats-voted-replace-american-voters-with-illegals.html A senior adviser of former President Donald Trump turned to social media to warn the public about a recent bill that was passed by House Democrats. The proposal gives illegal immigrants representation in Congress and the Electoral College – which critics see as a move to replace real American voters with illegal occupiers. A post on X, formerly Twitter, by America First Legal founder Stephen Miller indicated: "ALERT: House Dems just voted UNANIMOUSLY to give illegals representation in Congress AND the Electoral College. House Seats and Electoral College votes WILL BE added to areas with the most illegals (including all Biden illegals) unless the Senate passes the bill. Invasion by design." (Related: TRAITOR: Trump lambasts Biden's immigration policies aiming to replace American voters with illegal migrants.) The said post included a screengrab of H.R. 7109, or the Equal Representation Act, showing that 202 Democrats voted against it on May 8. The post has been viewed 61.9 million times as of May 10 noon. A repost of the message by Big Tech mogul Elon Musk with the "100 percent" emoji was, meanwhile, viewed 30.8 million times. A user commented: "They know they can't win without them, and they don't care about the lives at risk to Americans to get those votes." A migrant who went through the proper citizenship process said: "American citizenship means less and less. It took me seven years to earn my citizenship. Dems do not hide their true colors anymore. They are importing voters for one-party control. This is not constitutional. Urge your Senators to vote for this house bill. Make your vote count." Meanwhile, Newsweek claimed that Miller's analysis of the bill is misleading and unfounded. The act which was introduced by North Carolina Republican Representative Chuck Edwards, would require the decennial census to include a citizenship question and "modify apportionment of Representatives to be based on United States citizens instead of all persons," the media outlet claimed. The decennial census, which will next take place in 2030, is conducted to form the Constitutional basis to reapportion the U.S. House of Representatives, determining the 435 memberships, or seats, in the House, it further said. "The mere presence of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is influencing electoral outcomes, and the Equal Representation Act that the House passed would protect our democracy by making sure that American citizens – and American citizens only – have a say in determining the direction of our country," Edwards said in a statement. Musk warns: 2024 will be the last election ‘actually decided by US citizens’ Due to the surge of illegals in the United States and now that they are being allowed to vote, Tech Giant billionaire Elon Musk believes that "the 2024 presidential election will likely be the last to be decided by the U.S. citizens." Musk's comment came in response to news that Republicans in the House of Representatives passed a bill requiring citizenship status to be added to the ten-yearly census, despite opposition from the White House. "Unanimous Democrat opposition to requiring citizenship for apportionment of House seats and Presidential electoral college votes says it all," Musk replied to the thread. "The Democratic Party's goal is to disenfranchise U.S. citizens by importing as many illegal immigrants as possible. Despite voting for President Joe Biden in 2020, he has openly criticized the president’s immigration policy but he has also called to make the legal immigration process easier and quicker. His latest post appeared to favor the GOP’s viewpoint that immigration, particularly in the southwest, is running unchecked. "We should not reward states and cities that violate federal immigration laws and maintain sanctuary policies with increased Congressional representation," House Speaker Mike Johnson said after Wednesday's vote. "Common sense dictates that only American citizens should be counted for electoral apportionment and the Equal Representation Act ensures that." Meanwhile, figures from the American Immigration Council show there are around 45.2 million people who count as part of the U.S. immigrant population, which is around 13 percent of the country's total. Out of those, around 53 percent are entitled to vote as they are naturalized American citizens, rather than so-called resident aliens, those in the country on work permits or illegal immigrants. Earlier this week, the Biden Administration spoke out against the bill, saying the government "strongly opposed" the change. The statement indicated that it would break the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states the census should simply count the "whole number of persons" in each state. "The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to ensuring that the census remains as accurate as possible and free from political interference and to upholding the longstanding principle of equal representation enshrined in our Constitution, census statutes and historical tradition," the White House statement read.

  • A call for people worldwide to stand with Japan against WHO’s public health dictatorship

    https://expose-news.com/2024/05/16/a-call-for-people-worldwide-to-stand-against-who/ On Monday, a press conference was held to launch a Japanese national movement against WHO’s pandemic plans.  Organisers also announced a protest against WHO’s plans to take place on 31 May, the second last day of the World Health Assembly meeting to adopt the amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) and the Pandemic Treaty. “For Japan, for the world, please lend us your support,” Chikatsu Hayashi said. As Japan mobilises for what promises to be a historic gathering, the message is clear – this is not just Japan’s fight. Please note: WHO is attempting to have two instruments adopted at the next World Health Assembly meeting at the end of this month to implement its pandemic plans: Amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) (“IHR”); and, the Pandemic Treaty, which has also been referred to as to as the Pandemic Agreement, Pandemic Accord and WHO Convention Agreement + (“WHO CA+”). Last month, tens of thousands of citizens across Japan came together in a series of pandemic rallies. The protests centred on the widespread opposition to the World Health Organisation’s (“WHO’s”) Pandemic Treaty, with escalating concerns over “infectious disease” and “public health” becoming potent tools for an unprecedented push towards what is perceived by many as a totalitarian surveillance society. Eminent speakers, including Professor Masayasu Inoue and modern history researcher Chikatsu Hayashi, provided compelling pre-demonstration speeches that laid bare the concerning dynamics between global health authorities and pharmaceutical agendas.

During the coronavirus crisis, in April 2021, you might remember, Japan’s own Anthony Fauci, Keizo Takemi, in a public webinar organised by the UN Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Federation of Economic Organisations, ….stated that the main source of funding for these activities comes from the Gates foundation. WHO has not stopped using the pandemic agreement and IHR revisions as a lever for the global vaccine business and the building of a totalitarian framework. Deceptive procedures and meetings by WHO must be monitored by people all around the world, as a necessity. On 28 May, from 9 am local time, [during the 77th World Health Assembly] Community A’s deliberations and decisions will be critically observed, and as a result, this movement might immediately call for withdrawal from WHO.  The event of Community A will be live-streamed on my X at the same time on the day. From this Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare press room, to everyone nationwide I once again appeal for everyone to gather at the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Hibiya at noon on 13 May, to hereby declare a national movement! For Japan, for the world, please lend us your support. Source: Aussie17 on Twitter Today’s press conference: If you notice, if you oppose, if you resist, you must show it with your attitude! Chikatsu Hayashi, 13 May 2024 (14 mins) You can watch the original video on YouTube, in Japanese without the option for English subtitles, HERE.  And you can follow the Japanese anti-WHO movement called ‘National Movement to Save Lives from the WHO’ on Twitter HERE. Press Conference from Japan: A Call for Global Solidarity: The Largest Global Protest Against WHO By Aussie17, 13 May 2024 Our friends in Japan kick-started the National Movement to protect Japanese citizens (and the world) against the WHO in a press conference today. This National Movement will culminate in what the organisers aim to be the world’s biggest protest against the WHO on 31 May 2024. This movement is aimed at safeguarding citizens from the undue influence of global entities like the Gates Foundation, and WHO, alongside the Japanese government and the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare. This stance comes in response to actions and measures implemented in the wake of what has been termed an artificial pandemic. Notably, in April 2021, a figure comparable to Japan’s Anthony Fauci, Minister of Health Keizo Takemi, highlighted in a webinar hosted by the UN Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Federation of Economic Organisations, the push towards enforcing measures under the International Health Regulations (“IHR”). Takemi, who leads the Committee on Global Health and Human Security explicitly acknowledged the Gates Foundation as a primary financier of these initiatives. The central issue extends beyond immediate responses to the pandemic, challenging the future course set by the WHO through its pandemic agreement and IHR revisions. There’s a growing apprehension that these plans may serve to further entrench a global vaccine business and facilitate the establishment of a totalitarian health regime under the guise of public safety. The narrative is not merely a domestic affair but a global call to action, urging people and communities worldwide to stand in solidarity with Japan against what is described as a public health dictatorship. It’s about standing up for a future where public health decisions are transparent, equitable and free from corrupt influence from private interests such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (and more). Today, as Japan mobilises for what promises to be a historic gathering, the message is clear – this is not just Japan’s fight. The Japanese appear to be leading the way, and the world needs to get behind them to send a message to the globalists. It’s a battle for the heart of global health governance, an opportunity to demand better, and a moment for the world to unite in pursuit of a healthier, freer future.

  • Scientists FAIL to deliberately infect trial participants with COVID, proving that germ theory is a FRAUD

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2024-05-15-scientists-fail-infect-patients-covid-germ-theory.html Scientists in Great Britain are working on a new project aimed at developing new "vaccines" for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), and in the process they have inadvertently learned that germ theory, the idea that people get sick from "catching germs," is a hoax. In trying to deliberately infect trial participants with the latest COVID strains and subvariants, the research team learned that even doses 10,000 times higher than the original strain are not enough to induce sustained infection. They are claiming that the reason for this is because the participants developed natural immunity from prior infection, but it appears as though the real reason has to do more with the fact that COVID is not even a transmissible virus, nor has it even been proven to exist. Because it was never properly isolated using Koch's postulates, COVID as it is being presented to the world is not even real. Something made people sick, whether it was seasonal flu, 5G, the "vaccines," or some combination of all of the above, but there is still no proof to suggest that COVID is some floating disease that transfers from person to person through the air or droplets. (Related: Did you know that the healthiest people still carry 10,000 germ strains inside their bodies at all times, and yet are not actually sick?) Womp, womp The Lancet Microbe published the study, called the "Human Challenge" trials, on May 1. In it, the results "raise questions about the usefulness of COVID-19 challenge trials for testing vaccines, drugs and other therapeutics," reported Nature. "If you can't get people infected, then you can't test those things," said Tom Peacock, PhD, a virologist at Imperial College London. In other words, we went from this thing is so deadly and contagious that all life needs to stop to we can't even deliberately infect anyone with COVID for some reason, which is interfering with our plans to develop new high-profit drugs to sell you. It is unclear from this particular research if the effects are different in the vaccinated versus the unvaccinated. Did the "fully vaccinated" destroy their natural immunity to the point that they are no longer immune to COVID, or are they, too, protected from whatever it is these scientists are now having trouble infecting people with? Chief scientific officer at Children's Health Defense (CHD) Brian Hooker, PhD, apparently believes that the study's findings demonstrate the former option that the fully jabbed are out of equation in terms of being protected from COVID. "The results show the power of natural immunity as compared to the many breakthrough infections in 'naïve' vaccinated individuals," he said. "Any assertion that vaccination-based immunity is more powerful than natural immunity is complete lunacy – the acquired immune system is a beautiful thing and vaccination is a cheaper and much less effective substitute." Such trials are controversial to begin with because of how they seek to purposely infect people with diseases. When the government of the United Kingdom announced the first-ever such trials in 2021, many people balked at the idea, especially since the world was in the middle of a "pandemic," which we now know was contrived in and of itself. Proponents of the research tried to pull the wool over everyone's eyes by claiming it would lead to faster cures, but the truth is that all it has done is turn people into human guinea pigs while enriching Big Pharma and Big Government fat cats at everyone else's expense. "Well, if viruses don't cause illness, then this makes sense," one commenter at The Defender wrote about these revelations. "After all, during the 1918 flu pandemic, researchers tried very hard to get volunteers infected from sick people to no avail."

  • NanoTechnology Inside Our Supplements

    https://kellybacher.substack.com/p/nanotechnology-inside-our-supplements More info on the issue with some Zeolite supplements. This person took a look at TRS brand Zeolite under the microscope and saw what she believes is nanotech. Kelly Bacher's Substack Good morning and Happy Rainy Monday!!! Many of my clients ask me to look into different Supplements that they are concerned about. This morning I have put another very popular Supplement on the stage of my microscope. This did not impress me at all. My Faith is shaken. This is another Product that I Wholeheartedly believed in. I endorsed this product as well and had it as a Binder in my Protocols. After finding the flashing Lights in Neumi I stopped endorsing anything that said Nanotechnology on the packaging. I’m glad I did. Below is how the TRS presented on my Microscope. A lot of fellow Practitioners have been screaming about ZEOLITE being contaminated. I didn’t even want to look but here I am. Witnessing the same Blue flashing lights inside this Zeolite. Looks identical to the Neumi. Everyone has told me I just don’t understand this technology and that it is harmless. I’ve not read a single article that says nanotechnology is harmless, have you?? This company is claiming the same as Neumi. It’s just water encapsulated Nanotech. It delivers our products better and more efficient. Turns out this Zeolite is also synthetic, made in the Lab. I don’t think I will be taking these products anymore either. Is nothing sacred??
