Leading cancer charities in the UK are warning that there is a crisis underway with huge numbers of people not receiving referrals or treatment because they’ve been told to stay at home and not to burden the National Health Service.

The London Telegraph reports that Cancer Research UK stats show that in the 12 months ending in March 2021, a total of 304,555 fewer patients than the previous year were referred to hospitals for urgent checks by GPs.

It represents a drop of 13 percent.

The stats also show that there were 38,800 fewer patients starting cancer treatment, a drop of 12 percent.

According to the research 20,000 fewer people were referred for breast cancer checks alone.

Cancer Research UK’s chief executive, Michelle Mitchell, said: “The UK faces the real possibility of the Covid-19 crisis being replaced with a cancer crisis.” 

She added “Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on cancer services, and the lives of cancer patients, over the past year.”

“It’s not only those who’ve had a cancer diagnosis that we’re worried about – there are  thousands of missing cancer patients out there, many of whom would ordinarily have been diagnosed through an urgent referral but haven’t been because of the pandemic,” Mitchell further warned.

The Telegraph also reports multiple instances where people were refused GP appointments for months and DIED of cancer as a result before they were even able to be referred to a hospital for a check.

The Institute for Public Public Policy Research has also presented separate data that indicates survival rates have been set back by up to eight years.

The research suggests that there have been at least 4,500 avoidable cancer deaths this year alone owing to late diagnosis.

Sara Bainbridge, the head of policy at Macmillan Cancer Support, noted “This data shows a devastating year of disruption, which has seen tens of thousands of people missing a diagnosis or experiencing changed and delayed treatment, while their chances of survival potentially worsen.”

The findings add to the mountains of research that already exists suggesting that the ‘cure is worse than the problem’ as regards the COVID pandemic.

As we previously reported, Academics from Duke, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins have concluded that there could be around a million excess deaths over the next two decades as a result of lockdowns.

In October, the World Health Organization’s Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge said governments should stop enforcing lockdowns, unless as a “last resort,” because the impact on other areas of health and mental well-being is more damaging.

Kluge’s warning matched that of the WHO’s special envoy on COVID-19, Dr David Nabarro, who told the Spectator in an interview that world leaders should stop imposing lockdowns as a reflex reaction because they are making “poor people an awful lot poorer.”

The warnings resonate with numerous other experts who have desperately tried to warn governments that lockdowns will end up killing more people than the virus itself, but have been largely ignored.

Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Muller, recently warned that COVID-19 lockdowns will result in “one of the biggest” hunger and poverty crises in history.

“We expect an additional 400,000 deaths from malaria and HIV this year on the African continent alone,” Muller said, adding that “half a million more will die from tuberculosis.”

Muller’s comments arrived months after a leaked study from inside the German Ministry of the Interior revealed that the impact of the country’s lockdown could end up killing more people than the coronavirus due to victims of other serious illnesses not receiving treatment.

Another study found that lockdowns will conservatively “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than they save.

Professor Richard Sullivan also warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths in the UK than total coronavirus deaths due to people’s access to screenings and treatment being restricted as a result of the lockdown.

His comments were echoed by Peter Nilsson, a Swedish professor of internal medicine and epidemiology at Lund University, who said, “It’s so important to understand that the deaths of COVID-19 will be far less than the deaths caused by societal lockdown when the economy is ruined.”

According to Professor Karol Sikora, an NHS consultant oncologist, there could be 50,000 excess deaths from cancer as a result of routine screenings being suspended during the lockdown in the UK.

A Guardian analysis has found that there have been thousands of excess deaths of people at home in the UK due to the lockdown.

Infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse acknowledged that the decision to lockdown the UK last March was a “crude measure” that was enacted because “we couldn’t think of anything better to do.”

Woolhouse said the lockdown was a “panic measure” and a “monumental mistake on a global scale,” adding “I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by COVID-19.”

As we further previously highlighted, a data analyst consortium in South Africa found that the economic consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29 times more people dying than the coronavirus itself.

Experts have also warned that there will be 1.4 million deaths globally from untreated TB infections due to the lockdown.

In addition, a study published in The Lancet that notes “physical distancing, school closures, trade restrictions, and country lockdowns” are worsening global child malnutrition.

Thousands of doctors and scientists are also on record as opposing lockdown measures, warning that they will cause more death than the coronavirus itself.

Children Suffering From as Many as Three Different Viruses Due to Weakened Immunity Caused by Lockdown

Common cold now putting people in the hospital.

Published

Children are turning up at doctors’ clinics infected with as many as three different viruses due to their immune systems being weakened by lockdown, it has been revealed.

According to Thomas Murray, an infection-control expert and associate professor of pediatrics at Yale, his team is seeing cases of children with combinations of seven common viruses, including adenovirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), human metapneumovirus, influenza and parainfluenza, as well as COVID-19.

“That’s not typical for any time of year and certainly not typical in May and June,” said Murray.

Such viruses are surging in what would normally be ‘dead’ warmer months because kids weren’t exposed to them over winter as a result of being confined by lockdowns.

Medical experts have also noted that rhinovirus, which causes the common cold and is normally not serious enough to send people to hospital, is now having that outcome.

According to Michael Mina, an epidemiologist and Chief Science Officer at the digital health platform eMed, such viruses can “overcome seasonal barriers” because there are “a lot of people who don’t have immunity.”

Mina called the process a “massive natural experiment.”

As we previously highlighted, there has been a global outbreak of hepatitis cases in children, with the media asserting the cause is “unknown.”

However, some health experts have asserted that this was also caused by childrens’ immune systems being weakened by lockdown.

The outbreak has caused numerous deaths as well as children requiring urgent organ transplants.

UK Health Agency: 99 Per Cent of Monkeypox Cases Are Gay Men

151 out of 152.

Published

A survey of monkeypox cases by the UK Health Agency has found that 151 out of 152 participants are men who “identify as gay, bisexual or men who have sex with men.”

The survey found that 311 (99% of 314) cases were men, with just 3 confirmed female cases.

“One hundred and fifty-two cases participated in more detailed questionnaires, implemented from 26 May 2022, and used retrospectively,” the survey found.

“In this data, 151 of the 152 men interviewed identified as gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM), or reported same sex contact, and the remaining individual declined to disclose this information.”

Early outbreaks of monkeypox originated at a gay sauna in Spain and a fetish festival in Belgium.

Despite monkeypox cases being overwhelmingly gay men, some critics have suggested that encouragement by health authorities for gay men who suspect they may have caught the virus to refrain from having sex is “homophobic” and a form of “stigmatization.”

As we previously highlighted, the first monkeypox patient to go public revealed that he caught the virus from having gay sex with “around 10 new partners” after being deported from Dubai for testing positive for HIV.

Despite monkeypox spreading via close contact and the World Health Organization saying summer festivals should be limited to stop the spread of the virus, a WHO spokesperson later clarified that gay pride parades should go ahead as normal.

“Though most of the world was put on lockdown over covid with tens of millions of people losing their jobs, public health authorities have made it abundantly clear that asking gay men to stop having sex with dozens of strangers to stop the spread of monkeypox is untenable,” writes Chris Menahan.

The UK Health Agency survey survey also found that 81 per cent of cases were people resident in London.

As we previously discussed, the NHS in the UK posted a message on its website urging people to not touch or consume ‘bush meat’, which is available on the black market in ethnically diverse areas of London and can cause the spread of monkeypox.

Health Researchers Call For Term ‘Morbidly Obese’ To Be Memory-Holed

So as not to hurt the feelings of morbidly obese people

In the latest example of science and health being overruled by woke nonsense, researchers on obesity have called for ‘hurtful’ terms such as ‘morbidly obese’ to be scrapped so as not to harm the feelings of fat people.

The Daily Mail reports that researchers published in the journal Obesity, which describes itself as ‘the premier source of information for people with obesity’, conducted a study on how often ‘negative terminology’ was used in connection with obesity.

In an analysis of thousands of papers, the researchers found that 16.8% used the term ‘morbid’, while 2.4% contained the word ‘fail’.

The researchers then asked a selection of fat people how they felt about that, and to no one’s surprise they said it hurt their feelings and made them cry.

One participant described the use of the word ‘morbid’ in connection with obesity as ‘chilling’, while others suggested that using ‘failure’ denotes that a lack of self control is to blame for obesity.

Huh? In the vast majority of cases it is.

The upshot of the study was that health professionals should watch their language around sensitive fatties.

It concluded that instead of using ‘morbidly obese’ they should say ‘severely obese’, and instead of ‘weight loss or diet failure’ they should say ‘ineffective/insufficient weight loss’ or ‘secondary weight regain’.

Lead author Richard Welbourn, a bariatric surgeon working at Somerset’s Musgrove Park Hospital, said “All healthcare professionals should be aware of this research and consider their use of language when talking about obesity with colleagues and patients.”

Welbourn added that “Non-judgemental, standardised terminology may help patients feel safe to engage in a conversation about weight and potential treatment options.”

Commenting on the study, Joe Nadglowski, president of the Obesity Action Coalition declared that “It’s time we prioritise better language around obesity,” adding “Poor or outdated language hurts the provider/patient relationship and ultimately keeps people with obesity from seeking or receiving care.”

Nadglowski also suggested that “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” doesn’t apply to obese people.

Critics reacted to the study by noting that ‘morbidly obese’ is a clinical term and that sugar coating (not literally) obesity is dangerous.

Christopher Snowdon, of the Institute of Economic Affairs thinktank noted that “It is called morbid obesity because a BMI of over 35 is associated with a greater risk of death, in contrast to being overweight and mildly obese.”

Snowdon added, “It is not clear why an organisation called the Obesity Society, writing in a journal called Obesity, thinks people will be unnecessarily distressed by being described as morbidly obese, but are happy to be called obese.”

“Perhaps we should just go back to calling people fat?” he suggested.

Two thirds of the population in both Britain and the U.S. are overweight and obesity is imminently set to surpass smoking as the biggest cause of cancer.

The strain on healthcare in both countries because of obesity is clear.

But for god’s sake don’t hurt their feelings.

On the UK National Health Service’s website the words ‘morbidly’ or ‘morbid’ have been almost entirely scrubbed from guidance on obesity, replaced with descriptions like a BMI above 40 being ‘severely obese’.

As we reported yesterday, the NHS has also altered its guidance pages on ovarian cancer, removing instances of the word “women” in a move that they say is intended to be more “inclusive” toward trans, non-binary and intersex people.
