In another damning analysis of the impact of lockdowns, it has been estimated that more than 3000 people with diabetes unnecessarily died because they were unable to get check ups.

The Telegraph reports that a NHS study found a move to remote healthcare and a reduction in routine care in the first 12 months of the pandemic had “absolutely devastating” consequences for diabetics and resulted in them being “pushed to the back of the queue,” in the words of Chris Askew, the chief executive of Diabetes UK.

The study found that in the course of just under four months, non-Covid deaths among diabetics soared by 11 per cent, resulting in 3075 excess deaths, with a particular surge in deaths from heart disease.

The research also reveals that during 2020/21 only just over a quarter of diabetics were able to get full check ups on the NHS, down from close to half the previous year.

The study, which has been published in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, also found a whopping 66 percent increase in mortality rates for those who were unable to get full checks.

The figures are said to be conservative estimates because the analysis only compared deaths in England for two 15-week periods.

The Telegraph report also notes:

Researchers said some diabetes patients may have kept away from appointments because of the fear of catching Covid. But they added that disrupted access to routine care and “repurposing of the healthcare workforce” to focus on the pandemic meant those with diabetes took “a double mortality hit”.

The findings add to the already extensive research outlining how lockdowns, while having little to no effect on the COVID pandemic, had devastating health, economic and social consequences.

As we previously outlined in this overarching article, multiple studies have found that global lockdowns will likely cause more deaths than the actual coronavirus pandemic 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.

    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.

    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.
