The mix-up at a Baltimore manufacturing plant forced regulators to delay authorization of the plant’s production lines and prompted an FDA investigation.

Fifteen million doses of Johnson & Johnson (J&J’s) vaccine failed quality control after workers at a Baltimore manufacturing plant negligently combined ingredients from AstraZeneca and J&J’s COVID vaccine.
The mix-up forced regulators to delay authorization of the plant’s production lines and prompted an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Emergent has been cited repeatedly by the FDA for problems such as poorly trained employees, cracked vials and mold around one of its facilities, according to records obtained by the Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act.
AstraZeneca and J&J’s COVID vaccines employ the same technology which uses a version of a virus — known as a vector — that is transmitted into cells to make a protein that then stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies.
However, J&J’s and AstraZeneca’s vectors are biologically different and not interchangeable. (Continued …)
Sham surgery trials prove that procedures like nonemergency stents offer no benefit for angina pain—only risk to millions of patients.
At this point, you may be thinking what a shameful, dark period of medical history. Millions of risky procedures were performed, killing people and causing strokes before it was actually put to the test. When it finally was, it was proven to offer to no benefit. Certainly, a cautionary tale for the future. In fact, they’re still being done. It’s still one of the most common invasive procedures performed in the United States. Why Are Stents Still Used if They Don’t Work? That’s the subject of the next video.
This is part of a seven-video series. If you need to catch up, here are the first four:
As I say over and over in this video series, during a heart attack, in an acute setting, angioplasty can be life-saving. As I reiterate, when I’m talking about stable CAD, I’m talking nonemergency situations. In an upcoming series I talk about pros and cons of statin drug therapy. Spoiler: If you have a history of heart disease or stroke, taking a statin is recommended. All of these videos, including the upcoming statin series, are available on a digital download of a webinar I did last year. You can find it here.

Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on a disease.
In this lecture, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D. ND, speaks about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, she shares the key to getting and staying healthy for life.
Backed by numerous scientific studies, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., ND details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it.
