The "Great Zero Carbon" Conspiracy and the WEF's "Great Reset" globalresearch.ca The globalist Davos World Economic Forum is proclaiming the necessity of reaching a worldwide goal of "net zero carbon" by 2050. Yet transformations underway from Germany to the USA, are setting the stage for creation of what is called the New Word Order. In reality it is a blueprint for a global technocratic totalitarian corporativism, that promises huge unemployment, deindustrialization and economic collapse.

[Articles] Radiation doses and fractionation schedules in non-low-risk ductal carcinoma in situ in the breast (BIG 3—07/TROG 07.01): a randomised, factorial, multicentre, open-label, phase 3 study. thelancet.com In patients with resected non-low-risk DCIS, a tumour bed boost after WBI reduced local recurrence with an increase in grade 2 or greater toxicity. The results provide the first randomised trial data to support the use of boost radiation after postoperative WBI in these patients to improve local control. The international scale of the study supports the generalisability of the results.

Further research that distinguishes potential mechanisms driving post-COVID-19-related symptomatology is required.
(2022-08-06). [Perspectives] A reckoning on how we live with pain. thelancet.com There are few experiences more quintessential to our shared humanity than that of pain. Our ability to experience the fullness of life is inextricably linked to our ability to experience, and ideally learn from, our discomfort. Yet our relationship to pain and the potential for suffering has fundamentally shifted in ways that adversely impact us personally, socially, and economically. Chronic pain is estimated to affect one in five adults worldwide and is one of the leading causes of disability in the USA.

[Correspondence] Funding to treat malnutrition: a need for greater transparency. thelancet.com The Editors1 highlight the gap between the humanitarian need to treat millions of children with severe acute malnutrition and the amount of funding available. However, I fear that focusing solely on supply-side issues misses a major problem in the cost-effective use of funding. An example is the UN's adherence to the non-evidence-based stipulation that ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) must contain at least % of its protein from dairy. This 2007 stipulation corresponded to the only recipe available at the time.

[Comment] Long COVID: which symptoms can be attributed to SARS-CoV-2 infection? thelancet.com Mortality rates following SARS-CoV-2 infection have decreased as a consequence of public health policies, vaccination, and acute antiviral and anti-inflammatory therapies.1 However, in the wake of the pandemic, post-acute sequelae of COVID-19, or long COVID, has emerged: a chronic illness in people who have ongoing multidimensional symptomatology and disability weeks to years after the initial infection.2 Early reports of long COVID prevalence, summarised in a systematic review examining the frequency and variety of persistent symptoms after COVID-19, found that the median proportion of people who had at least on…
(2022-08-06). [Correspondence] COVID-19 and microbiome diversity in sub-Saharan Africa — Author's reply. thelancet.com We thank Wim Van Damme and colleagues for their interest in our work and their Correspondence. Their comments highlight unique aspects of how the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded in sub-Saharan Africa. These include the difficulty of estimating the true number of deaths for countries without excess mortality data, the effects of comorbidities on COVID-19 disease severity, and the distinctive immunological profile of populations in sub-Saharan Africa. We agree with the main thrust of their Correspondence and believe that clarifying some details about the scope and implementation of our analysis could be helpful.

(2022-08-06). [Editorial] 2022 heatwaves: a failure to proactively manage the risks. thelancet.com Human-induced climate change has made extreme heatwaves, wildfires, and flash floods substantially more likely and more severe. Yet, health impacts are widely underestimated. Most countries have failed to adequately plan, adapt, and use evidence-based information to protect their populations. For some countries, this is a dangerous failure of action, but others lack the adequate human and financial resources to respond. So far this year, India, Pakistan, the USA, China, and Europe have experienced extreme and dangerous heatwaves that damaged vital infrastructure and threatened to overwhelm emergency service capac…

[Correspondence] COVID-19 and microbiome diversity in sub-Saharan Africa. thelancet.com We read with interest the COVID-19 Forecasting Team's description of the variation in COVID-19 infection—fatality ratio,1 confirming that differences in COVID-19 mortality between geographies are largely explained by the age structures of their populations. However, we fear that the lower than anticipated burden of severe COVID-19 in most of sub-Saharan Africa gets lost in estimations from models based on data from the few African countries that have reliable excess mortality data but are not representative of sub-Saharan Africa.

[Correspondence] Troubling assumptions behind GBD 2019 on the health risks of red meat. thelancet.com We echo the compliments of Alice Stanton and colleagues1 to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2019. We also support Stanton and colleagues' call for further clarification, justification, or reconsideration of the theoretical minimum risk exposure level of zero for unprocessed red meat selected by GBD in their latest estimates. Not only does the increase in the estimated burden appear implausible, but the lack of transparency in the assumptions underlying the calculations undermines the authority of the GBD estimates.
