Weekly Health Quiz: Vaccines, Aging and Obesity

1 Certain vaccines can make you more susceptible to severe infection rather than less through a process known as:

  • Antibody-dependent enhancement

    Experts have warned about the problematic history of coronavirus vaccines and their propensity to produce antibody‐dependent enhancement (ADE), which could make vaccinated individuals more susceptible to severe infection by SARS-CoV-2 or its variants. Learn more.

  • Th2 immunopathology
  • Sepsis
  • Myokine storm

2 By unblinding their trials early and giving the control groups the active vaccine, COVID-19 vaccine makers:

  • Ensure all participants have immunity against COVID-19
  • Nullify long-term safety studies, making it very difficult to assess long-term safety and effectiveness, and the true benefit versus cost

  • Safeguard data collection so that we will be able to determine long-term safety and effectiveness of the vaccines
  • Are heroes for casting science aside to protect the public

3 The risk of women of childbearing age dying from COVID-19 is:

  • High (5%)
  • Moderate (between 1% and 2%)
  • Low (between 0.5% and 0.7%)
  • Very low (0.01%)

    Women of childbearing age have virtually no risk of dying from COVID-19, their fatality risk being a mere 0.01%, so they are unlikely to reap any significant benefit from a COVID-19 vaccine, which does not prevent you from contracting and spreading SARS-CoV-2. Learn more.

4 In a recent ruling, in which he weighed in on the ability of social media giants to control free speech, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas stated:

  • “If government cannot legally censor, they may pressure private companies to do it for them.”
  • “The government cannot accomplish through bribes and special treatment what the Constitution prohibits it from doing directly.”
  • “The government cannot accomplish through threats of adverse government action what the Constitution prohibits it from doing directly”

  • “There is no speech that is fully protected under the First Amendment; government may impose restrictions on speech in cases where public health is of primary concern.”

5 Aside from old age, which of the following is the most prominent and impactful risk factor for COVID-19-related hospitalization and death?

  • Anemia
  • Pregnancy
  • Lack of symptoms
  • Obesity

    Next to old age, obesity is one of the most prominent risk factors for COVID-19-related hospitalization and death. Obese individuals have a 40% to 133% higher risk of hospitalization due to COVID-19 than their non-obese peers, and their chances of requiring intensive care are 74% higher. Learn more.

6 A reliance on observational epidemiological studies has contributed to the belief system that:

  • Plant-based diets are better than meat-based ones

    A reliance on observational epidemiological studies has contributed to the belief system that plant-based diets are better than meat-based ones. Learn more.

  • Processed foods are contaminated with chemicals
  • Fast food diets lead to obesity
  • You can get by with five or six hours of sleep each night

7 There are 10 steps that every tyrannical government has followed. Once the 10th step is locked into place, there's no going back. According to Naomi Wolf, who wrote the book on this topic, where is America now?

  • Step 1
  • Step 5
  • Step 8
  • Step 10

    There are 10 steps that every tyrannical government has followed. It starts with the invocation of a terrifying internal and/or external threat. From 2001 onward, that threat was terrorism, which was used as the justification for stripping us of our liberties. With the declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic, we entered Step 10, where emergency powers are used to strip remaining freedoms from the people. If we don't prevent the culmination of Step 10, we will be living under a totalitarian regime. Learn more.
