Six healthcare workers suffered allergic reactions after getting a shot of Moderna coronavirus vaccine in San Diego, California. Their symptoms were considered severe and required medical attention. The doses administered to the six healthcare workers were part of the Moderna Lot 041L20A distributed to 287 providers across the state earlier this month. That batch of shipment, which … Continue reading California healthcare workers suffer severe allergic reactions following coronavirus vaccination

FDA approves genetically engineered pigs for food and medicine

Genetically engineered pigs will soon be introduced into the American food supply. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved the first-of-its-kind, intentional genomic alteration for domestic pigs. The experiment takes animal farming to an entirely new level, introducing genetic alterations that could cause genetic ripple effects for decades to come. The genetically engineered GalSafe pigs will … Continue reading FDA approves genetically engineered pigs for food and medicine

REPORT: 15% of coronavirus deaths worldwide can be attributed to air pollution

Long-term exposure to air pollution has been linked to a heightened risk of death due to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Now, new research has estimated the proportion of COVID-19 deaths worldwide that could be attributed to air pollution. Published late October in the journal Cardiovascular Research, the study revealed that roughly 15 percent (or more than 180,000) COVID-19 deaths worldwide … Continue reading REPORT: 15% of coronavirus deaths worldwide can be attributed to air pollution

The dangers of 5G pollution cannot be overstated

As the new fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology rolls out around the world, it is important to keep in mind that its widespread use does not mean that it is safe. In fact, many studies have shown quite the opposite, prompting moratoriums and bans in some areas. Here is a closer look at some of the biggest … Continue reading The dangers of 5G pollution cannot be overstated

SciFi or real life? Massive 5G-beaming drones set to take over world’s skies

Until recently, it was possible to avoid living within range of a cell tower. However, with the advent of 5G, small cell towers are popping up every couple of houses in some neighborhoods. Making matters even worse, some companies are working on massive drones that beam 5G down onto the population, making exposure essentially inevitable. The … Continue reading SciFi or real life? Massive 5G-beaming drones set to take over world’s skies

Not all it’s cracked up to be: 5G networks won’t solve rural connectivity issues

There’s a lot of hype surrounding 5G technology, with promises of lightning-fast download speeds and vast connectivity that extends even to those in remote areas. Of course, the potential health repercussions of 5G mean that all that connectivity isn’t quite as desirable as it sounds – and now researchers have found that it isn’t likely … Continue reading Not all it’s cracked up to be: 5G networks won’t solve rural connectivity issues

Fluoride linked to IMPAIRED kidney and liver function in adolescents, warn researchers

A study that was recently published in the Environment International journal showed just how dangerous fluoride can be in adolescence. The study looked at the relationship between the levels of fluoride in young people’s drinking water and blood and the health of their kidneys and livers. The adolescents studied were part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey. … Continue reading Fluoride linked to IMPAIRED kidney and liver function in adolescents, warn researchers

Chemicals found in tap water could be responsible for more than 100,000 cases of cancer

Diet, genetics and environmental factors all have a hand in determining one’s risk for cancer, one of the deadliest chronic diseases around the globe. But a recent report from an environmental advocacy group cautions that millions across the US could be facing a greater risk of cancer due to contaminated tap water. In a major breakthrough, scientists … Continue reading Chemicals found in tap water could be responsible for more than 100,000 cases of cancer

Chemicals in organophosphate pesticides cause brain damage: Study

Prenatal exposure to organophosphate pesticides, a kind of pesticide considered toxic to humans, has been linked to impaired cognition and significant changes in the brain. In a major breakthrough, scientists from the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) and Stanford University found that teenagers exposed in utero to organophosphate pesticides demonstrated altered brain activities during tasks that required executive control. Sagiv and her … Continue reading Chemicals in organophosphate pesticides cause brain damage: Study
