Well, it’s

time to fight back!

Governor, who the crap are YOU to interfere between a doctor and patient?

Yeah, it truly IS

more than a bit unsettling

Both scary and

not at all surprising.

I am SO glad that I am a pureblood!

Low levels of

vitamin D appear to be correlated with inflammation.

D3 supplements are cheap…

Now, world-first genetic research from the University of South Australia shows a direct link between low levels of vitamin D and high levels of inflammation, providing an important biomarker to identify people at higher risk of or severity of chronic illnesses with an inflammatory component.

Well, it’s pretty

dang obvious now!

Man, I’m happy I’m still a pureblood! I really dodged a bullet, there…

Did I mention that my boss got severe heart problems after getting the vax? Hmmmmm…

Ten percent of Americans who received the COVID-19 vaccine regret having done so, according to a recent poll.

In addition, 15 percent of the 1,038 adults that took the survey said that they have been diagnosed with a new condition by a medical practitioner, weeks or months after taking the vaccine. [emphasis added]

I’m sure that SOME of those new conditions were NOT directly caused by the vaccine. But at least 15% may have been damaged. That’s a lot! Let’s say it is actually half that. “Just” 7.5%.

Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?”

“The mRNA vaccine technology is new and clinical trials naturally have no long-term data. CHD believes this survey points to the need for further study.”

Yup. I’ve been saying that all along. Novavax (IIRC) has a traditional, non-mRNA vaccine just coming out, and while I really don’t think I need it, I think that is virtually for sure a far better option, overall. And I’m not particularly opposed to it.

I just don’t think the mRNA vax is particularly effective and I don’t think it is particularly safe. I’m pretty much OK with the other, though I think that even the very small risk is not justified for most folks under about 70 who don’t have severe pre-existing conditions…

I didn’t take the mRNA vaccine when it first came out because the technology was new and I wanted to see how it would work “in the wild.” Besides, I’ve had the Delta variant and recovered, so I am immune. I can neither get nor transmit COVID.

Well, I think we have the answer to that question, now.
