Distortion of science for political and economic ends has prevented the allocation of needed resources to stop the spread of dangerous pathogens. This places all of society as a whole at risk, but exacting an insufferable toll of death and disability on our front-line healthcare workers, along with our most vulnerable populations. COVID-19 has demonstrated how dangerous this scenario has become.

Arundhati Roy observed: “Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew.” I however, have set my expectation lower for COVID-19, hoping that this pandemic will provide the motivation to make the changes we always knew needed to happen, but lacked the political will and motivation to implement them.
The United States’ failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic is multifaceted and started with a lack of infectious disease infrastructure and the fa

All the fashion gurus, bloggers and fitness trainers in one voice advise us to eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible, claiming that it is not only delicious, but also useful. Indeed, vegetable products are a storehouse of vitamins and trace elements, but do not forget that in some fruits the sugar content can even compete with a chocolate candy, which definitely does not bode well. In such fruits, the harm is much greater than the benefit: their use causes spikes in insulin levels, fatigu

Today we will look at the best films about success that have already earned the love of the audience. Among them are pictures about billionaires and those who are just starting their wa
Unlike vitamins E and C, B vitamins do not have antioxidant properties and do not directly affect the immune system. However, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is involved in the synthesis of antibodies that fight viruses and is necessary for the production of auxiliary cells that purify the blood after inflammatory reactions. Lack of pantothenic acid in the body leads to metabolic disorders, on the basis of which dermatitis, discoloration and increased hair loss develop. The acidity in the stomach

With the onset of the new season, not only the weather outside the window and our wardrobe changes, but also the condition of our skin. It is particularly stressed during the cold season. It's all the fault of the cold and wind, which cause the skin discomfort, and, of course, all sorts of cells, which strongly dry the air — and, as a result, our skin. As a result, it often begins to peel or blush — and the care that you used in the summer, just will not save the situation. We have collected 5 m

Kylie Minogue presented a new album - the fifteenth in a row. It's called "Disco". Actually, the title best describes the genre and mood of the record: it is inspired by the disco of the 70s and 80s.

Parasites and their insect vectors coevolve, and this long-term association maintains the transmission of the parasites from infected to non-infected vertebrate hosts. Researchers in 2005 demon

It's no secret that Google collects huge amounts of data about its users. This is not only information about their movements, requests made by the voice assistant, and the contents of emails, but also a lot more.
