People who have received two doses of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine may still spread the virus to others, a senior British medical officer has warned. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, England’s deputy chief medical officer, said on Jan. 24 that “we do not yet know the impact of the vaccine on transmission of the
The World Health Organization (WHO) has cautioned experts not to rely solely on the results of a PCR test to detect the CCP virus. In updated guidance published on Jan. 20, the WHO said that lab experts and health care practitioners should also consider the patient’s history and epidemiological risk factors alongside the PCR test
Officials in Norway said they are investigating the deaths of about two dozen elderly patients who received the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine and are looking into the prospect that adverse reactions to the vaccine “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients.” Reports of adverse reactions with a fatal outcome “suggest that common adverse reactions to mRNA vaccines,
Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccines have come under scrutiny after regulators approved the first one for general use on Dec. 31 last year. Several Chinese pharmaceutical companies are still conducting clinical trials for their products. A contraindication is a symptom or condition that makes treatment risky and potentially inadvisable. The central government recently issued a list of
Never in medical history has a diagnostic tool been given so much authority as the PCR test, which has been used to detect the CCP virus and determine who is quarantined, which businesses may open, and how many people can gather together. Many policymakers rely solely on rising positive cases derived from the PCR test,
Nearly 50,000 scientists and medical practitioners from around the world have signed a petition against lockdown measures put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, saying that they are causing “irreparable damage.” As of Nov. 20, at least 35,236 medical practitioners and 12,115 medical and
Physicians say they are concerned about the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) updated guidance on therapeutics for COVID-19 patients. The guidance, which was quietly updated on Oct. 9, recommends against any form of treatment for patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms who do not require supplemental oxygen. “No specific antiviral or immunomodulatory therapy” is recommended for COVID-19
Seeing is believing. To some extent, that’s true, of course: Our eyes allow us to see what’s around us, helping us navigate our world. But it turns out sight is much more complicated than that, according to the new book “Perception: How Our Bodies Shape Our Minds,” by University of Virginia psychologist Dennis Proffitt and
Hundreds of millions of people of all ages worldwide live with two or more chronic conditions—commonly defined as multimorbidity. Those living with it are found to have poorer physical and mental health, higher risk of being admitted to hospital, and a higher risk of dying prematurely compared to people with only one chronic condition. Given that the number of
It’s easy to ask what you can do to look and feel younger. It’s harder to look at what you’re already doing to accelerate aging. Chronological aging is a fact of life. Years climb as they pass, and there is nothing you can do about it. The years will lead to some natural decline, but how
It can be really confusing when two different things share the same name. For example – although both are called “spleen”, it refers to completely different parts of the body in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western medicine. The spleen in Western medicine is an organ in anatomy while the spleen in TCM is an
It’s no secret that when I come across an amazing book, I feel compelled to sing its praises to anyone who will listen. I’m practically a professional proselytizer for the publishing industry. (How’s that for alliteration?) The latest book that I’m urging everyone—especially baby boomers—to read is “Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive
Although political leaders have closed borders in response to COVID-19, scientists are collaborating like never before. But the coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) is novel—and we don’t yet have all the facts about it. As a result, we may have to change our approach as new scientific data comes in. That doesn’t mean the science isn’t trustworthy—we will get
In the digital age, information that has stood the test of time is drowned out by the latest craze. Health trends and fad diets hawked by fitness gurus offer you endless ways to get fitter and be better, but how much of their advice will actually “stick” and become multi-generational wisdom? If you’d like to
While the world waits for a definitive treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19, studies have shown a significant correlation between a low level of vitamin D in the blood and a greater risk of infection of COVID-19, revealing that more robust data is needed to determine if vitamin D can prevent the disease or be used
These are uncertain times. The pandemic that swept over the world has shaken our sense of security, disrupted our comfort zones, and awakened our most fundamental fears. We’ve responded by establishing new habits, routines, and behaviors that may stay with us longer than anticipated. For some of us, shaking this unease may be easier said than done.
