Some Reason To Hope – And Why We NEED >90% Vaccinated.

COVID has trampled the world. My nation, Australia, is about to open up everything in the upcoming months. We’ve seen a surge in vaccination rate after an outbreak occurred in June/July – going from 11% vaccinated to 63% receiving their first dose by October 1. In the first affected state, NSW, this number is over 87% – and vaccine hesitancy is at an all time low of 8% too! A combination of messaging focusing on increasing vaccination, and restrictions promised to affect vaccinated people are to thank for this, I believe. But we’re only going for 80% vaccination. And states […]

Lose weight by hacking neuroplasticity. No diets, counting calories or willpower required. Just time. And knowledge.

I’ve been on prednisone for 8 years. It’s first line, and effective treatment for many dangerous autoimmune diseases, including my own (graft versus host disease – THE side effect of my bone marrow transplant). But it’s horrible in many ways. It disrupts your sleep, your attitude. It gave me diabetes. But arguably the worst for many is how it makes you gain weight.  After my bone marrow transplant, I went from a healthy, fit 80kg (180lb), 6’1” young man, to, at my peak, a morbidly obese 114k (a 75 pound increase), in 9 months. I went from looking like this.. […]

How NSW Can Reach COVID-ZERO without lockdowns, with Rapid Antigen Test SCREENING.

So NSW’s been swamped by COVID. We registered over 1400 cases per day, with numbers still rising. My already stretched hospital colleagues have received emails telling them that workloads will double in the next 2 weeks. Our vaccination rate is increasing, but the Delta virus spreads, and overwhelms hospital, even in the most vaccinated nations in the world. For some reason, in this time, our premiere and prime minister wants to give up and let COVID take its course. They’re comparing living with COVID-19, to living with the flu. They’re even suggesting that we stop testing. We know it’s gonna swamp […]

Iceland is beating COVID, even the delta strain, Without Lockdowns. How NSW can do this too.

So NSW’s been swamped by COVID. We’ve got over 1200 cases per day, with cases still rising. Our vaccination rate is increasing, but the Delta virus spreads, and overwhelms hospital, even in the most vaccinated nations in the world. For some reason, in this time, our premiere wants to give up and let COVID take its course. They’re even suggesting that we stop testing. We know it’s gonna swamp our hospitals, and lead to deaths, and maybe mean we can never get this under control. It’s not just seen in other nations – it’s happening in Sydney, right now! As […]

Physicians for Informed Consent and Misinforming People.

So recently, this document is being shared around by antivaxers created by a group called ‘Physicians for Informed Consent.’ The name is designed to garner trust, even though many, if not most of their members, are not physicians at all. They claim they’re not antivaxers to seem like they’re “only promoting safety,” making themselves out to be heroes, not grifters in this pandemic. They are in coalition with several anti vax organisations, and regularly make false claims and this article debunks them thoroughly and well (indeed, they are a well known quack coalition). Unfortunately it just goes to show that […]

Bone Marrow Transplants – The ENTIRE Process. How They Work. A Patient Guide and Story.

bone marrow transplant

Bone Marrow Transplants are scary. And they’re a unique procedure whose impacts can last longer than many regular organ transplants. But they also save lives. I’ve had 2 myself. Both were allogeneic transplants, the focus of this blog post, which is where you receive your cells from a donor. I’m a medical student and tumor vaccine researcher, but I wrote this out to outline the process for a fellow patient recently – so it’s in plain English – and it’s also more patient focused. I found, personally, that a fellow patients’ words just stuck more. So I thought I’d share it […]

So I’ve got diabetes now too…

So yeah. 14 days ago now, I found out, in hospital I had diabetes. We went in for super high fat levels. Turns out it wasn’t the kebabs, but high blood sugar causing this. I was hoping it would be steroid induced. I just vlogged about it here:   But I have a LOT of questions that I guess only patients can answer. The little, tiny things – like: 1) Where and how do you prick (for insulin and blood glucose monitoring) EXACTLY to minimise pain? 2) Got any ideas of what things I can eat? I’m low carbs AND […]

Trump’s Corruption – a log.

OK so I put together a video outlining Trump’s corruption and comparing it to Biden’s alleged corruption. The difference between the two is quite remarkable.   Biden’s Allegations of corruption; https://fortune.com/2020/10/23/trump-biden-debate-2020-election-corruption-china-ukraine/ Trump approves pipeline he had at least $1-2million investments in. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/dec/02/donald-trump-dakota-access-pipeline-support-investment The leader of the free world sells beans. https://www.thecut.com/2020/07/trump-goya-beans-photo-fiber.html Trump golf count; it only calculates the cost of travel, by the way. The actual charges Donald charges his own hotels for his trips (which is quite high) is equally astronomical. https://trumpgolfcount.com/QD Ivanka Trump’s brand that was promoted by the press secretary.   Trump leases his own officer for […]

Masks Won’t Make You Bullet (or Corona) Proof! Please Forward to People at High Risk of COVID-19!

So masks are great. We should be wearing them when we need to go out.   But they don’t make you bulletproof.   I’m writing this because I’ve seen and been talking to a couple of very high risk friends, one who’s actively getting cancer treatment, the other halfway around the world, going out with masks. When I asked one – a friend who is on chemo (I was shocked that he was going to a stranger’s birthday party while Melbourne’s lockdown was going strong) – he said that did so because he’s wearing a mask, and that he should […]
