Parkinson’s disease (PD), or simply Parkinson’s, is a chronic degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that affects both the motor system and non-motor systems. The symptoms usually emerge slowly, and as the disease worsens, non-motor symptoms become more common. Early symptoms are tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking. Problems may also arise with cognitio.
VLA COMMENT: If the Covid Vaccine is linked to Parkinson and Dementia, think of all the childhood vaccines with mercury and aluminum. As well, vaccines damage the mitochondria. A study I once read authored by some head Doctor at a big medical University suggests that his work shows that all mentally ill people have damaged mitochondria. Which came first, the chicken or the egg>
Male Cyclists Take Home First, Second Places At Women’s CycloCross Cup In Chicago
Two trans-identified males dominated women’s competitions at the Chicago CycloCross Cup yesterday, leading many women’s rights advocates to condemn the tournament for allowing men to self-identify into the women’s categories.
The CycloCross Cup was held at Jackson Park in Chicago, Illinois from October 7 to 8, and comprised of over one dozen different competitions for men, women, and junior athletes. But two trans-identified males topped the podium in two different competitions, taking home medals and, in one event, prize money.
VLA COMMENT: I am not a “feminist”. But who is that has the power to push years of women’s rights into the toilet? I think all women racers, at least in one sport, should not show up for the races…or show up and not race….one female sport…after another. It is an individual sacrifice but it is for the greater good,.
Originally developed by Merck & Co. in the late 1970s, Ivermectin was first used as a veterinary drug against worms in animals. In humans, its primary utility has been in the treatment of diseases caused by parasitic worms, like onchocerciasis (river blindness) and lymphatic filariasis. Due to its efficacy against these diseases, the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed Ivermectin on its list of essential medicines.
The Pioneers Behind Ivermectin:
The development of Ivermectin was not just a monumental leap in the field of medicine; it was also a testament to the perseverance and innovation of two eminent scientists – Dr. William C. Campbell and Professor Satoshi Ōmura.
Satoshi Ōmura: A distinguished Japanese microbiologist and bioorganic chemist, Professor Ōmura’s work primarily focused on isolating naturally occurring microbes from the soil. His belief in the potential therapeutic applications of these microbes led him to identify and cultivate a unique strain of bacteria called *Streptomyces avermitilis*. This strain proved to be the foundation for the creation of Ivermectin.
William C. Campbell: An Irish-born biologist, Dr. Campbell’s insights into the realm of parasitic diseases were pivotal. Working with Merck Institute for Therapeutic Research, Campbell identified the antiparasitic properties of the compounds derived from Professor Ōmura’s bacterial strain. This collaboration eventually led to the development and commercial production of Ivermectin.
Awards and Recognition:
Their combined efforts culminated not only in the creation of a groundbreaking drug but also in accolades that celebrated their contribution to humankind. In 2015, their discoveries were honored with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute awarded half of the prize to Ōmura and Campbell, recognizing their work in developing a therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites. Their discovery of Ivermectin and its applications brought about significant reductions in the incidence of river blindness and lymphatic filariasis, profoundly impacting global health.
Their legacy stands as a reminder of the transformative impact of scientific collaboration and exploration. Ivermectin, as a result of their combined endeavors, has and continues to bring relief to millions of individuals plagued by debilitating diseases worldwide.
