The anti-vape stuff was a Phillip Morris lobbying push. Them and the billionaire funded anti-tobacco NGOs found a common target.

I watched this happen realizing it was fascism, and I realized nothing would stop it.

After nearly 100 people who attended the same New Jersey high school developed rare brain tumors, an alumnus and cancer survivor is demanding answers.

Environmental scientist Al Lupiano is among 94 former students and staff from Colonia High School in Woodbridge, New Jersey, who have been diagnosed with rare brain tumors. He received his diagnosis in the late '90s when he was 27 years old, but last year his wife and sister — also alumni of the school — developed brain tumors as well, as reported by CBS New York.

"Fast forward to August of last year," Lupiano told CBS. My sister received the news she had a primary brain tumor, herself. Unfortunately, it turned out to be stage 4 glioblastoma. Two hours later, we received information that my wife also had a primary brain tumor."

To investigate and discover an actual cause of cancer is strictly forbidden

Think that’s just rhetoric?

To this day nobody has “discovered” why a rare form of childhood cancer “somehow” started killing children in 1947

“It’s a mystery”

Same for the Tooth Fairy project

Somehow nobody wants to talk about it, much less investigate

Heartland virus:

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/972416
Heartland virus (HRTV), an emerging infection first detected in lone star ticks in Missouri in 2009, has spread to lone star ticks in Georgia, a study published in Emerging Infectious Diseases reports.

HRTV disease is transmitted by the bite of an infected Amblyomma americanum tick, named "lone star" because of the silver-white spot on the female scutum (back).

The World Health Organization said Saturday that 12 countries have reported at least 169 unusual cases of hepatitis in children, with 17 of the children having undergone liver transplants as a consequence. At least one child has died.

The WHO’s European division, which is taking the lead on the investigation into the mysterious outbreak, urged countries to look for, investigate, and report similar cases.

...

While many of the children were infected with adenoviruses when they developed hepatitis, 20 of them had Covid-19 and another 19 were co-infected with an adenovirus and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid.

Authorities have ruled out any possibility that Covid vaccines might have been involved in these cases. The vast majority of the children were not vaccinated, the WHO statement said.

Pebody said a number of hypotheses are on the table. Because the illness the children have manifested doesn’t mesh with what has been previously associated with adenovirus 41, scientists are studying the virus to see if it has undergone changes that might explain the new behavior.

On Thursday, April 21, 2022, CDC issued the Health Alert Network (HAN) Health Advisory to notify clinicians and public health authorities of children identified with hepatitis (CDC Hepatitis) and adenovirus infection (CDC Adenovirus). A cluster of pediatric cases of significant liver injury with positive adenovirus infection have been identified and reported to CDC since November 2021. A possible association between pediatric hepatitis and adenovirus infection is currently under investigation after subsequent laboratory testing identified adenovirus type 41 infection in several cases. Clinicians are recommended to consider adenovirus testing and to report such cases to their state or jurisdictional public health authorities and to CDC.

There's a monkeypox outbreak in the United Kingdom, Portugal and Spain. The outbreak is quite small — just 36 suspected cases spread across the three countries, including eight in England and 20 in Portugal. A case in the U.S. has also been reported.

But health officials have little clue where people caught the monkeypox virus. And there's concern the virus may be spreading through the community — undetected — and possibly through a new route of transmission.
