Removing the Thyroid From Images, Not From Patients
Welch H. | jamanetwork.com | 2020-06-01
In March 2011, a major earthquake and tsunami hit the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan, causing the reactor to melt down. Five years later, children living near the plant were reported to have rates of thyroid cancer 20 to 50 times that of other children in Japan. This finding, however, appeared to stem from a systematic thyroid ultrasonographic screening program–one that did not extend to the rest of Japan. Other investigators applying the same screening protocol to children in other Japanese regions found that the rate of thyroid cancer detected by screening did not differ meaningfully from that i…

What's NATO Up to These Days? Provoking Russia, Draining Healthcare Budgets and Protecting Its Own from COVID
T.J. Coles | counterpunch.org | 2020-05-29
In November 2019, as experts warned that a novel coronavirus was likely to develop in the near-future, NATO boasted that its European Allies, including the UK, as well as Canada, were boosting their military budgets by an average of 4.6 percent, or an additional $130bn since 2016. The implication is that this increase in military spending is at the expense of healthcare, which is being privatized worldwide.

Washington Post Tells Readers About Trump's "Existential" Threat to China
Dean Baker | cepr.net | 2020-05-28
Thankfully, it is not a nuclear war.

rt.com | 2020-06-01
Bellingcat, the UK-based enablers of Western narratives in Syria and Ukraine now fueling US race riots, selectively translated a satirical post from Russian social media shared by RT's editor in chief to get her "canceled." | On Sunday, Margarita Simonyan shared a Telegram post by Dmitry Steshin, a war correspondent for the newspaper KP, which purported to give "advice" to rioters in the US how to make their uprising more "successful" along the lines of the US-backed 2014 coup in Ukraine. | Given that…
