Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we discuss all things boozy; looking past the exaggerated alcohol industry sponsored claims, getting down to the reality of drinking and some interesting methods of treatment for alcoholism.

Vaccination: Do your own research, exercise due diligence and reserve judgment

It seems we are rapidly moving towards compulsory vaccination in the West. This likely move is widely supported and promoted by the mainstream media (MSM) who accuse all those who choose not to vaccinate themselves or their children of being a public health risk. The bandwagon they have created is overwhelmingly populated by those who have a limited grasp of science. Like me, as lay men and women, they are solely reliant upon what they are told, unless they do their own research. I'm not a scientist and do not profess to have a full grasp of the scientific evidence surrounding vaccines. However, nor do I simply trust everything I am told by someone else, simply because they try to impress upon me their expert status. Especially when they have a very clear conflict of interest. While I defer to...

Toddler fed a vegan diet was so malnourished she had no teeth; parents face prison

A baby girl fed a vegan diet by her parents in Australia was so malnourished by the time she was 19 months old she didn't have any teeth and looked like she was just three months old, a Sydney court has heard. The toddler's parents - who can't be named for legal reasons - have pleaded guilty to failing to provide for her causing danger of serious injury. Court documents reveal she was fed oats, potatoes, rice, tofu, bread, peanut butter and rice milk. A mouthful of fruit or two sultanas were her snacks. The eastern suburbs couple, who hadn't vaccinated the toddler, faced a sentence hearing at Downing Centre District Court on Thursday. ...

San Francisco city attorney subpoenas anti-vax doctor Kenneth Stoller’s records

Ramping up the pressure in a statewide battle over medical exemptions for student vaccinations, San Francisco City Attorney's Office has issued a subpoena to Dr. Kenneth Stoller, a vocal opponent of mandatory vaccines. The city is requesting medical and billing records related to every medical exemption he's written since 2016. The unusual move comes as tensions rise over vaccination requirements during the worst measles outbreak in the United States in nearly two decades. Comment: See: Cold, hard facts: Death from measles or death from measles vaccine? Objective:Health #12 - The New Red Scare - Freaking Out About the Measles In 2015, California passed Senate Bill 277, which outlawed so-called personal belief exemptions for student vaccination requirements. Any licensed physician is still allowed to write exemptions for legitimate medical concerns. Such medical exemptions have increased significantly since SB 277. State Sen....

Diabetes drugs linked to ‘flesh-eating’ genital infection – study

Some newer diabetes drugs have been linked to a nightmarish "flesh-eating" genital disease that can spread rapidly and kill skin tissue as it grows, according to a new study by US Food and Drug Administration scientists. Symptoms of the disease known as 'Fournier gangrene' include pain, redness and a foul odor in the genital area. Alarmingly, the infection starts by attacking your genital or anal region, but can also spread rapidly and kill other body tissue along the way. The rare infection concerns people taking a newer class of diabetes medications known as SGLT2 inhibitors, according to FDA scientists who recently published their findings on the issue. ...

Glass, germs, and steel: Why Mayor De Blasio’s draconian public health policy will fail

Measles is in the news again. The humble microbe has many faces: scourge of the New World, benign and ubiquitous rite of childhood passage, simultaneous conduit of modern scientific achievement and vexing icon of evasive, unrealized dreams; and most recently, contemporary Rorschach test in the latest American culture war. U.S. measles cases spanning 22 states surged last month to 695 confirmed cases in 2019, marking the highest annual number since the disease was declared eliminated from the U.S. in 2000. The ongoing outbreak began last fall when infected travelers returned from Israel, Ukraine, and the Philippines, triggering clusters in New York, Washington State, and California - and a concurrent wave of proposed legislation to curtail non-medical exemptions for required childhood immunizations in over a dozen states. As state legislatures considered bills tightening immunization requirements, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff formally requested...

Church of Scientology ship with measles case on board still quarantined in Curacao as blood samples tested; measles patient now healthy

Hundreds of crew members and passengers aboard the Church of Scientology cruise ship Freewinds must remain under quarantine in the Caribbean until blood samples come back negative for measles, a health official in the ship's home port of Curacao told ABC News. The ship, carrying a female crew member who had tested positive for measles but is now healthy, had been quarantined in St. Lucia before arriving in Willemstad, Curacao, Saturday morning, at which point its 216 crew members and 102 passengers were again prevented from disembarking, according to Izzy Gerstenbluth, the head of the Epidemiology and Research Unit at Curacao's Ministry of Health. On Saturday, a team led by Gerstenbluth -- an epidemiologist and public health physician leading Curacao's response -- boarded the ship and spent the day interviewing passengers and crew members. The team gathered documentation from those...

Fast-tracked dengue vaccine wreaks havoc in the Philippines, 600 child deaths under investigation

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just approved one of the most sought after vaccines in recent decades. It's the world's first vaccine to prevent dengue fever - a disease so painful that its nickname is "breakbone fever." The vaccine, called Dengvaxia, is aimed at helping children in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories where dengue is a problem. But this vaccine has a dark - and deadly - history. One that has led to criminal charges in the Philippines, sparked national panic and fueled a massive measles outbreak that has already killed more than 355 people. The concern That story begins on a stage in Manila in 2016. A young girl, about age 9 or 10, sat on a chair surrounded by health officials. She wore a bright yellow T-shirt with the words "Dengue is dangerous" across it. She...

SOTT FOCUS: Objective:Health #13 – The Anti-Human Agenda and the Children of the Quorn

Does "extinction rebellion" ring a bell? It should because this "rebellion" is not against - but for - the extinction of humanity. Sound crazy? That's because it is. We've just come through International Workers' Day, a holiday with leftist origins meant to celebrate the work of the working class, the unsung heroes who keep society functioning despite the constant threat of exploitation. Yet it seems the left has moved away from protecting the little guy toward oppression from the top down under the globalist guise of 'saving the planet'. Environmentalism is now the most important issue, stopping climate change its new rallying cry, and the oppression of the lower classes in order to reach environmental goals - no matter how misguided - is the order of the day. Whether its AOC or Bill Maher expressing anti-natalist sentements, French President Macron...

The illusion of food ‘choice’

When María (a pseudonym) was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her first pregnancy, and again during her second, some might have blamed it on her food choices or lifestyle. She blamed it on her broken heart. Having migrated to the Bronx in the mid-1990s from rural Puebla, a state in Mexico, María was separated from her mother back in Mexico. Immigration status kept them from being able to see each other. She knew that if she had been in her hometown, her mother would have lovingly nurtured her throughout her pregnancies, preparing home-cooked meals and drawing on a wealth of remedies for every ache or pain. Instead, María suffered in silence. Sadly, her mother was also suffering: She, too, had been diagnosed around 2010 with the initial symptoms of diabetes. But within a few years, the disease would rage out...
