According to a new statement put out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is no longer available in the United States. Specifically, the statement says: “[The] Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is no longer available in the U.S. All remaining U.S. government stock of Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine expired May 7, 2023. Dispose of any remaining Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.” This means the U.S. government has stopped purchasing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, all of the remaining vaccines they did purchase expired ten days ago, and therefore, all doses are to be discarded. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was one out of the four approved for use within the United States. Those four were the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, Moderna's mRNA vaccine, Johnson & Johnson's adenovirus vaccine, and Novavax's vaccine (which contains a nanoparticle version of the spike protein). However, with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine off the market, there are only three players left. ⭕️ Sign up for our NEWSLETTER and stay in touch
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was called to investigate a mystery illness at Lake Tahoe which was suspected to be a mutated strain of the common Epstein Barr virus: "The Kissing Disease." The CDC feared this virus had acquired new characteristics of being casually contagious with a short incubation period. Instead, the CDC stumbled into a perfect storm of multiple illness paradigms at the exact same time. The incident was so shocking that they buried it under the vague and trivializing name, "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."

We are coming to a point where nothing matters in America, only the rhetoric. Indeed, it is easy to show that virtually everything they told us about Covid or its treatment was a lie. But to make matters worse, people are dying because of these lies and still it doesn't matter. Yet, how can we call our selves Christians or the church if we divorce ourselves from truth or even murder? Join us on this episode of the Supernatural Junkies as we expose the lies and morn the dead.

In a newly implemented Medical Examiner System to certify deaths, the Medical Examiner was certifying all types of pneumonia deaths as covid-19 deaths, a former Director of End-of-Life Care has said. On Saturday, Sai, a former NHS Director of End-of-Life Care, wrote “When four different diseases [are] grouped and now being called covid-19, you will inevitably see covid-19 with a huge death rate. “Patients being admitted and dying with very common conditions such as old age, myocardial infarctions, end-stage kidney failure, haemorrhages, strokes, COPD and cancer etc. were all now being certified as covid-19 via the Medical Examiner System. “Hospitals were switching to and from the Medical Examiner System and the pre-pandemic system as [and] when they pleased.

Data from the CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) uncovered a “safety signal” suggesting that those in this age range are more likely to suffer an ischemic stroke 21 days after getting the bivalent Comirnaty than they are 22-44 days post-vaccination.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 https://thevaccinereaction.org/2023/01/cdc-fda-find-possible-link-between-pfizers-bivalent-covid-shot-and-strokes/ Pilot group: Elites secretly demanding UNVAXXED pilots, flight crews Report cites many officers who have collapsed after taking shots https://www.wnd.com/2023/01/pilot-group-elites-now-demanding-flight-crews-unvaxxed/ Booster Shots May Trigger Stroke Incidents, According to CDC and FDA An Overview of Risk and Prevention In addition to cardiac events, another life-threatening side effect has been associated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. When is the risk period? Does the flu shot play any role in these events? What actions should we take to better protect ourselves? Summary of Key Facts An increased risk ofstroke events has been identified with the Pfizer COVID-19 bivalent vaccine, according to a joint statement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The onset time in people aged 65 years and older was 1–21 days after the booster, with a significant cluster of events observed 11–21 days after the booster. Sixty-four percent had received the flu vaccine on the same day as the COVID-19 booster. The bivalent booster contains the code of the spike protein, contributing to the increased risk of blood clots. High-risk people should avoid the boosters. Solution:Remember the five “suddens” of stroke warning signs. Advice on preventing other risk factors of stroke is also provided in this paper.

Global average temperatures have risen roughly 2 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880, but more than half of that change has come only in the last 4 decades. And in the next 3 decades, we are on track to see an additional 5-degree Fahrenheit (or more) increase. The Earth of today, and of the near future, is one in which we must constantly adapt to the environmental upheaval we have created. As our planet's flora and fauna act and react to this shifting world, we will, as individuals, more and more often directly face the consequences of climate change. Infectious disease is one such consequence. As the geographic ranges of animals, plants and fungi expand and contract, we are exposed to disease vectors in new and often unpredictable ways.In an effort to better prepare our country for an uncertain future, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are studying how climate change is shaping the patterns of infection across our country, and what we can do about it.This week, the Buzz is joined by CDC experts Dr. Ben Beard, Deputy Director of Vector-Borne Diseases and Dr. Nancy Chow, Data and Quality Team Lead in the Mycotic Diseases Branch.Get more information at cdc.govSubscribe on your favorite podcast platform to never miss an episode!

The U.S. House of Representatives has subpoenaed several top Biden administration officials, including the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over the administration's coordination with Big Tech to censor users. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, sent the subpoenas on April 28 to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Jen Easterly, and James Rubin, an official at the State Department's Global Engagement Center (GEC). Over 100 Harvard professors joined to form a new council dedicated to free speech rights. The council is pushing back on what some call a crisis, involving disciplinary actions and punishment against targeted speech. Florida lawmakers gave final passage to a measure that clears a path for Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis to run for president without resigning from his current job. The provision, which was anticipated, would tweak a Florida law—known as “resign to run”—that currently requires candidates in the state seeking higher office to give up their elected post once they qualify for the ballot. The legislation approved Friday exempts “any person seeking the office of President or Vice President of the United States” from the resign-to-run law. Russia hurled missiles at cities across Ukraine as people slept on Friday, killing at least 25 civilians in the first large-scale air strikes in nearly two months. ⭕️ Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

Murder Rates are rising sharply, but so too are suicide rates. Life is no longer precious and ending it is becoming too easy. Yet, Life is about people and how we relate within it. Nevertheless, life is what is you make it, so we cannot allow it to escape us. I have had to deal with issues of depression and suicide myself but was able to overcome and is now empowered to always rise above depression leading to thoughts of suicide. What has helped? The connection with the Ultimate and rediscovering a life of passion and purpose. John Maxwell in his book: "The Purpose Driven Life," said it best: "there are two questions we need to ask ourselves to unveil the purpose of our lives. 1) What am I passionate about & 2) What are my gifts. The answers to both of these questions are directional arrows to your life's purpose. Your passions and your gifts are what give us energy," (Maxwell, John. The Purpose Driven Life, Zondervan, 2002). In fact, Maxwell goes on to say in the book that the Purpose Driven Life is more than a book but a roadmap that guides your life. In essence, it is living a life of purpose that is best described as the "Goal-Oriented Life". When one discovers one's purpose through one's passions understanding the bigger picture of life which is about people and how we relate, then we will spend our times working on passions that ultimately aides human life. Whether we realize our goals and passions is one thing and must not see as failures but part of the totality of life. Where we fail someone will pick up. Moreover, the realization of anything must always be seen as a work-in-progress, as Caroline Dwek points out that this is "the power of the yet!" Paul in Romans and John Calvin in his theology describes this as a process of being but also becoming. As such our perspectives will be adjusted to mitigate against thoughts that leads to depression. Data: I reference an article I wrote in The Neoliberal Corporation Moral Magazine entitled: Murder Rates are Rising Sharply! Is Gun Reform the Answer? - The NeoLiberal Corporation - https://theneoliberal.com/renaldocmckenzie/murder-rates-are-rising-sharply-is-gun-reform-the-answer/04/13/2022/1541/blog-posts/the-neoliberal-journals/, April 10th, 2022. In the article I said: the data suggests that gun-related deaths are climbing back to their peak levels since 2014/2015, from their low levels of 4.0 percent between 1996-2013/14. Prior to that there were some sharp fluctuations in the murder-rate between 1981-1996 where the rates fell drastically from 6.3 to around 4.8 percent between 1981 to 1984, followed by a steady rise to 7.1 percent from 1984 – 1994/5. In 1996, the rates started to fall again and by 1999, the gun-related murder-rates fell to an all-time low of about 3.9 percent (per 100, 000 people) of the population, which carried over into 1997-2013 with no major rise or fall. Until 2016 to now, where murder rates are rising and are climbing back up to their peak levels. According to John Gramlich of the Pew Research Center: “More Americans died of gun-related injuries in 2020 than in any other year on record, according to recently published statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That included a record number of gun murders, as well as a near-record number of gun suicides. Despite the increase in such fatalities, the rate of gun deaths – a statistic that accounts for the nation's growing population – remains below the levels of earlier years,” (Gramlich, John, “Gun deaths in the U.S.: 10 key questions answered | Pew Research Center,” Feb. 3, 2022). Indeed, suicide remains a human challenge that must also be resolved properly when appropriated clearly. Suicide stems from issues that lead to depression and therefore we must address the issue in a multifaceted way. Nevertheless, I share how rediscovering the purpose-driven life can help us lead a life that is constructive. renaldocmckenzie.com/ anchor.fm/theneoliberal --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/theneoliberal/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/theneoliberal/support

Scientists from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) held a press conference this weekend to condemn the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) for requesting more information regarding the early spread of novel coronavirus in Wuhan, the origin city of the ongoing pandemic. French President Emmanuel Macron has argued that Europe needs its own “strategic autonomy” from the United States, potentially including its reliance on the dollar and should avoid following America into any conflict with China over Taiwan. A new proposal by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would tighten emissions restrictions for coal-fired power plants, heartening public health advocates and raising questions from the energy industry about cost and feasibility.

Dr. Kathleen Ethier joins me on the podcast this week to talk about the latest Youth Risk Behavior Survey. According to new data from CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), America's youth are engulfed in a growing wave of sadness and violence, with teen girls and teens who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and questioning (LGBQ+) experiencing extremely high levels of violence and mental health challenges. While solving this mental health crisis seems overwhelming, one step forward is to focus on the place where 95% of kids spend much of their time – school. But how exactly can schools help to support our teens, and what can we do to further support our schools? https://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/2023/increased-sadness-and-violence-press-release.html Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) / 1) https://www.cdc.gov/healthyyouth/whatworks/what-works-overview.htm 2) Call or text 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline if you are experiencing mental health-related distress or are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

Overview: Recently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allowed institutions to relax in-facility masking strategies. With the end of the public health emergency on the horizon, is it time to further adjust masking guidance in healthcare? This pro/con discussion will highlight the debate on whether to incorporate an updated standard for universal precautions in healthcare settings to permanently include universal masking in routine patient-care interactions or to refine a risk-based approach for patient care for masking. Speakers: Ibukun Kalu, MD Erica S. Shenoy, MD, PhD Moderator: Deborah Yokoe, MD, MPH

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is admitted to the emergency room due to a fall, and every 19 minutes, a fall-related death occurs. We focus on what we eat, exercise, and relationships and connections. We think about preventing cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease, and dementia to have longer healthier lives. However, falling is the most prevalent and expensive issue facing people.Falls are the primary cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries in those aged 65 and over, as reported by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the previous year, 27.5% of older adults experienced a fall, and 10.2% suffered an injury related to the fall, according to data from 2018.Recent studies have shown that subtle changes in walking ability, such as slowing down or increased variability, can significantly increase the risk of falls, and mobility issues, and even lead to nursing home placement or death. However, many clinical measures of walking ability only assess straight-path walking, while daily activities in the home and community often require curved-path walking skills, such as walking around furniture or navigating street corners. By focusing on these critical aspects of walking ability, Jennifer's research offers new insights into effective strategies for fall prevention in older patients.The financial consequences of falls are also substantial, it is anticipated that this expense will rise over time, with estimates indicating it will reach $101 billion by 2030. On the move is an evidence-based fall prevention program developed by Dr Jennifer Brach that offers simple, cost-effective interventions by reducing or eliminating known risk factors, offering treatments that promote behaviour change, and leveraging community networks. In addition to physical harm, falls can also result in psychological harm such as fear of falling, which can be overwhelming and lead to physical decline, depression, and social isolation. While the leading causes of death for people over 65 may be related to ageing, it's important to remember that many of these conditions can be prevented or managed with healthy lifestyle choices and medical treatment.In the field of fall prevention for older patients, there is a wealth of ongoing research focused on developing effective strategies to reduce the risk of falls. Jennifer's research specifically explores the complex motor skill of walking, which involves intricate interactions between brain and body systems to walk and rapidly adapt to changes in conditions and intent. Navigating everyday life environments requires creating an internal (mental) map of the environment, planning the path and executing the walk (eg, walking through a grocery store, walking to a table to be seated in a restaurant). As such, daily life walking even without objects to carry or signals to respond to is, by nature, a dual-task or even multi-task activity. Dr Brach and her team developed Figure-of-8 Walk Test (F8W), that combined curved-path walking and navigation to better test the complex walking abilities necessary for independence in daily walking activities."On the move" exercise programs where regular physical activity can help improve balance, strength, and flexibility, all of which can reduce the risk of falls. Exercise programs such as Tai Chi, yoga, and resistance training have been found to be particularly effective in older adults.Learn more about Dr Jennifer Brach's research athttps://www.sph.pitt.edu/directory/jennifer-brachOn the Move: Group Exercise for Improved Mobility in Older Adults®https://www.onthemove.pitt.edu/about/team/Support the showLearn more at www.profselenabartlett.com
Lay of The Land's conversation today is with Afif Ghannoum, a biotech attorney by background and the CEO of BIOHM Health — which he co-founded with his father, Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum, a leading microbiome researcher and recognized for naming the mycobiome (the body's fungal community).

This week, our hosts break down discussions from the recent meeting held by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of advisors to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The updates include reassuring data on the safety of vaccines, who is getting hospitalized for COVID, and the role of vaccine boosters now and in the future. “The goal is not to stop COVID entirely; it's about the prevention of severe disease. To me, this is similar to the flu, nobody in public health rationally thinks that we can ever stop flu via vaccination in a given year,” says Steven Newmark, Director of Policy at GHLF. “But public health officials recommend vaccinations to help slow the spread to those most vulnerable and to protect against severe disease." Among the highlights in this episode: 00:52- Zoe and Steven kick off the episode by introducing this week's topic about the CDC's external advisory committee's recent meeting focusing on COVID-19 vaccines and boosters 01:47- Steven shares that the data discussed in the meeting prove that the COVID-19 vaccines continue to be safe 02:15- Steven and Zoe discuss another finding from the meeting, that hospitalizations with COVID-19 were from patients who went to the hospital for COVID-19 treatment, as opposed to entering with another ailment and being diagnosed with COVID secondarily 03:23- Steven and Zoe look at the numbers for COVID hospitalizations amongst children, which showed that 50 percent did not have underlying conditions 04:35- Zoe discusses the CDC's risk benefit analysis for giving adolescents the COVID-19 vaccine 05:22- Zoe and Steven talk about the different scenarios adults have for getting their booster 08:15- Steven and Zoe close the episode by sharing what they learnedSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (03/08/2023): 3:05pm- On Wednesday, a Congressional Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic heard from experts in science, medicine, and infectious disease to help determine the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Robert Redfield, the former Director for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), testified that COVID-19's unique characteristics mean that it was likely the result of gain-of-function research. Dr. Redfield explains, “[i]t's important to understand what the cleavage site does... It changes the orientation of the binding domain of Covid. So now it could not see the Ace2 receptor, it totally changes the orientation, so it has a high affinity for human receptors... It didn't seem that it belonged there”—concluding that the virus was most likely engineered. You can read more about Dr. Redfield's testimony here: https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-former-cdc-head-tells-mtg-gain-of-function-research-likely-cause-of-covid?utm_campaign=64466 3:25pm- During Wednesday's Congressional Select Subcommittee hearing, former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield stated that American tax dollars were “absolutely” used to fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China. 3:30pm- In February 2019, former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield was excluded from phone calls exploring the origins of COVID-19 because he expressed an opinion contrary to Dr. Anthony Fauci's preferred narrative, according to testimony Dr. Redfield provided to a Congressional Select Subcommittee on Wednesday. 3:45pm- During questioning at Wednesday's Congressional Select Committee hearing on the Coronavirus pandemic, Committee Chairman Rep. Brad Wenstrup asked Dr. Robert Redfield whether gain-of-function has ever stopped a pandemic? 4:05pm- Wesley Hottot—Senior Attorney at the Institute for Justice—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his most recent editorial at National Review, “Time to End the Fake Crime of Carrying Cash.” Hottot and his co-author Daryle James write, “[t]here's no law against carrying large amounts of bills. But in some cases, civil forfeiture makes it effectively illegal—and punishes the innocent.” You can read the article here: https://www.nationalreview.com/2023/03/time-to-end-the-fake-crime-of-carrying-cash/ 4:30pm- On Tuesday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson continued his coverage of never-before-seen footage and information from the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. Over two days of broadcasting, footage has revealed several instances in which the January 6 Commission lied, or withheld, relevant information to advance the left's preferred narratives. 40,000 hours of Capitol footage was provided to Carlson by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Carlson also called out Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for imploring Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch to silence Carlson and his program. 4:35pm- On Sunday, far-left activists attacked an Atlanta Police Department—with some even using Molotov cocktails. While appearing on Fox News, former Congressman Trey Gowdy wondered why Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Justice Department haven't gotten involved—is it because this is an example of left-wing extremism? 4:50pm- During a Congressional hearing on Wednesday, Sgt. Tyler Vargas documented how he was denied permission to shoot a suicide bomber in Afghanistan that ultimately killed over 180 people. He referred to the Biden Administration's 2021 withdrawal from Afghanistan as a “catastrophe.” 5:00pm- The Drive at 5: According to a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania State Representative Mike Zabel (Democrat-163rd District) will resign after being accused of sexual harassment. 5:15pm- During Wednesday's Congressional Select Subcommittee hearing, former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield testified that COVID-19's unique characteristics mean that it was likely created via gain-of-function research. 5:20pm- Mystery Movie Clip: “Al Pacino Dunkaccino”? 5:35pm- During a Tuesday Senate hearing, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, and his interest rate hikes, are solely responsible for any impending recession and subsequent increases in unemployment. Warren completely neglected to mention her preference for reckless spending, and embrace of Modern Monetary Policy, are to blame for runaway inflation in the first place. 5:40pm- According to a report from Luke Rosiak at The Daily Wire, “[a]n attorney for the so-called “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley asked federal prosecutors repeatedly for all videos showing his client inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, yet…he never received the bombshell—and potentially exculpatory —footage aired Monday night by Tucker Carlson.” You can read the full report here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/its-appalling-qanon-shamans-lawyer-says-doj-lied-withheld-videos-aired-by-carlson 6:05pm- Dr. Marc Siegel—Clinical Professor of Medicine, Medical Director at NYU Langone Health & a Fox News Medical Analyst—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his most recent opinion editorial in The New York Post, “If the White House Doesn't Change Course, the Next Pandemic Could Come from a Lab Too.” You can read the editorial here: https://nypost.com/2023/03/07/if-the-white-house-doesnt-change-course-the-next-pandemic-could-come-from-a-lab-too/ 6:30pm- The mainstream media has no interest in investigating the origins of COVID-19. Are they afraid of upsetting China? 6:50pm- While speaking with Mika Brzezinski, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed that COVID-19 “had a disproportionate impact on women and girls” and that “it'll take 250 years for women to achieve pay equality.”

This week we are talking once again with Kristal Kent. If you recall, Kristal has joined us on previous interviews discussing Fibromyalgia and again discussing prepping for surgery as a chronically ill person. We never really gave Kristal the credit she deserves for being such a fantastic advocate for all Veterans and those with Fibro or other life-long medical conditions. Allow me to properly introduce this dynamic woman! Kristal Kent is a disabled Army Veteran living with Fibromyalgia and served with the 256th Combat Support Hospital (256th CSH). Kristal worked with the Personnel (HR) department, then after September 11th, 2001, Kristal was re-assigned to the Tactical Operations Center (TOC) of the 256th CSH. After being medically discharged due to injuries, Kristal stayed on with her unit, the 256th CSH, and volunteered for 2 ½ years as the Family Readiness Group Leader, re-invigorating the program to become a supportive extension of the unit for the soldiers and their families.

Cardiac events, such as heart attacks and strokes, are also more common in women than men. While there are many factors that contribute to heart disease, there are also a number of things that women can do to protect themselves. These include maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, exercise, and knowing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack. Here are eleven tips for keeping your heart healthy as a woman. These tips are based on the latest scientific evidence and are designed to help you lower your risk of heart disease and live a healthier life. 1. Heart Disease is the Leading Cause of Death for Women in the United States: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The American Heart Association (AHA) says that about 1 in every 4 female deaths is attributed to heart disease. A variety of lifestyle choices and risk factors can contribute to the development of heart disease. It is important to be aware of them and take steps to reduce your risk. 2. Women Often Experience Different Symptoms of Heart Disease Than Men: Though men and women both experience cardiovascular events, it has been found that women can experience different symptoms than men. Women may experience shortness of breath, fatigue, or pain in the upper back and neck, aside from chest pain. Women may also have a higher risk of developing atypical heart attack symptoms than men. If something doesn't seem quite right, it is important to seek medical attention right away. 3. There are Certain Lifestyle Choices That Can Help Keep Your Heart Healthy: Making certain lifestyle changes can help reduce your risk of heart disease. For example, it is important to maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly. Additionally, it is important to pay attention to your food choices and quit smoking. All of these measures can help reduce the risk for cardiovascular events. 4. Pay Attention to Your Family History: It is important to pay attention to your family history, as your risk for heart disease can be higher if there is a family history of heart disease. It is important to speak with your doctor about your family history and determine if you need to be tested for any genetic heart diseases. 5. Manage Your Mental Health: Mental health can also be an important factor when it comes to heart health. Studies have found that stress, depression, and anxiety can all increase the risk of cardiovascular events. Taking steps to manage your mental health, such as talking to a therapist or engaging in mindfulness practices, can help reduce this risk. 6. Be Physically Active: Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your heart health. It can help reduce your risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes. Aim to be physically active for 30 minutes five days a week. Activities such as walking, biking, and running are all good options. 7. Eat a Healthy Diet: Eating a healthy diet is an important part of maintaining a healthy heart. The AHA recommends following an eating plan that is high in fiber and low in saturated and trans fat. This includes eating more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. 8. Don't Smoke: Smoking can damage the cells in the coronary arteries, which can increase the risk of heart disease. If you smoke, it is important to quit. It can take time and there are a variety of resources available to help. 9. Get Your Cholesterol and Blood Pressure Checked Regularly: High cholesterol and high blood pressure can both make it more difficult for your heart to work properly, so it is important to get them checked regularly. Your doctor can help you decide how often these tests should be done. 10. Keep Diabetes Under Control: Diabetes can also increase the risk of heart disease. Keeping your diabetes under control can help keep your heart healthy. This means managing your blood sugar levels, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. 11. Make Sure You're Getting Enough Sleep: Inadequate sleep can increase the risk of heart disease. Aim to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night and speak to your doctor if you are having trouble sleeping. Advantage of Women's Health Screenings: Annual wellness physicals or women's health screenings can help detect certain medical issues early on, which can be beneficial for heart health. These screenings may include electrocardiograms (ECG) or other tests to check your heart health. Conclusion: Following the tips outlined above can help reduce your risk of heart disease and help keep your heart healthy as a woman. It is important to remember that each person is unique and it is important to speak with your doctor to understand what is best for your individual needs.
The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 2: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has added the COVID-19 vaccine to routine immunization schedules for adults and children over six months old. While the immunization schedule does not make vaccination mandatory, the CDC's recommendation could be adopted by states that ultimately choose to make it mandatory for students. During Wednesday's House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) accused the Twitter account “LibsofTikTok” of lying about gender conversion therapy procedures being performed on children at Boston Children's Hospital and, subsequently, motivating a bomb threat at the hospital. In a new opinion editorial, the person behind the Libs of TikTok account wrote that Rep. Ocasio Cortez “lied about me on the House floor”—linking to several videos of Boston Children's Hospital promotional videos featuring several doctors at the hospital who openly discuss and advocate for gender conversion procedures on children. Will AOC apologize for spreading misinformation?

He continues, “[w]hen the story broke, Big Tech and social and mainstream media blocked the reporting” and “[m]y actions were labeled Russian disinformation.” Despite doing the right thing every step of the way, John Paul unfairly had his character attacked—ultimately, resulting in the forced closure of his business, The Mac Shop. PLUS Zeoli announces that John Paul Mac Isaac will be joining him for a 1210 WPHT Speaker Series on February 23rd in person at FOP Lodge #5!
