"Pfizer’s testing of the reformulated monovalent shot against XBB.1.5., only involved 10 mice. Moderna’s version has been tested on 50 adults, one of whom required medical attention due to an adverse event, giving us a potential serious adverse event ratio of 1 in 50."
At a glance from the article:
- September 11, 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it had approved reformulated monovalent COVID shots by Pfizer and Moderna for the fall for use in individuals 12 years of age and older. The agency has also issued emergency use authorization (EUA) for use of the reformulated jabs in children aged 6 months to 11 years
- The updated mRNA injections contain a single modified RNA said to correspond to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5., which was the dominant variant in the U.S. for most of 2023, but which has since been replaced by other variants. XBB.1.5 accounted for just 3.1% of the circulating strains as of September 2, 2023
- According to authorities, this strain is different enough from the strains in any of the previous shots for them to recommend everyone take it, regardless of your previous COVID jab history
- Americans are fed up with the COVID boosters, so federal officials have recast the new booster as an "annual immunization." However, certain groups will require up to three doses of this new shot. So, they’re basically just restarting the whole injection series all over
- Pfizer’s testing of the reformulated monovalent shot against XBB.1.5., only involved 10 mice. Moderna’s version has been tested on 50 adults, one of whom required medical attention due to an adverse event, giving us a potential serious adverse event ratio of 1 in 50

PFAS are typically added to fabrics to make them water- and oil-repellant and to prevent stains and sticking or wrinkling. PFAS are coined as “forever chemicals” because they don’t break down, and besides polluting the environment, they show up in the blood of people and animals.
“State leaders are excited to see companies like Dick’s Sporting Goods demonstrate leadership,” Sarah Doll, national director of Safer States, an alliance of U.S. environmental health organizations, said in a statement to Environmental Health News. She also stated, “States from California to Colorado to New York have stepped up to protect communities by banning PFAS in textiles. It is gratifying to see companies follow suit.”

The true toll of global deaths, sickness, and economic loss caused by antibiotic overuse in meat production is laid bare in study by World Animal Protection
NEW YORK, April 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The excessive use of antibiotics in factory farming is causing the premature deaths of nearly one million people and $400 billion in global economic losses each year, according to a report titled Global Public Health Cost of Antimicrobial Resistance Related to Antibiotic Use on Factory Farms published today by World Animal Protection.
The report calculates the deadly impact of antibiotic overuse specifically by international meat and dairy producers and pinpoints their share of the blame in the global superbug crisis.
Around three-quarters of the world's antibiotics are used in farmed animals, including pigs, chickens, and cows, though it has been unclear what impact antibiotic overuse in factory farming has on human health – until now.
This excessive use of antibiotics sees drug-resistant bacteria emerge and contaminate our environment - our food and water. As a result, our natural ability to fight life-threatening illnesses is rapidly weakening, and common, previously treatable infections are now proving fatal.
In the first study of its kind, World Animal Protection has found that four superbugs common in factory farming – Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, and non-typhoidal Salmonella – were linked to 975,000 human deaths and 35 million illnesses in 2019. That's more deaths than some common cancers like colon or liver cancer, HIV/AIDS, or malaria in that year.
Annette Manusevich, Farming Campaign Manager, World Animal Protection, US, states, "Antibiotic resistance is a rapidly growing public health threat, and the clear link to factory farming exposed in this report demonstrates the urgent need for food systems that protect animals and humans. Meat and dairy production in the US accounts for around 11 million kg of antibiotics sold each year, which has increased in recent years. Urgent action is needed to regulate the use of antibiotics in the agriculture industry and reduce meat in diets in high-meat consuming countries to build a more sustainable food system and stop the next global health crisis."
