A new study of the results of the COVID lockdowns on America’s kids has found that up to half of our children became overweight thanks to the government-imposed lockdowns.

The University of Southern California and the University of Michigan study which came out Friday found that the weight of children between the ages of 5 and 11 increased from 36 percent to nearly 46 percent over a year of prolonged shutdowns and school closures.

Per The Federalist:

“School is essential,” Dr. Tim Logemann of the Wausau Aspirus Hospital Cardiologist and Obesity Treatment Program in Wisconsin, who placed blame directly on school absence while the authors of the study refrained from assigning cause. “Kids are eating ultra-processed foods locked in at home and it’s making them sicker.”

A literature review on effective strategies for childhood obesity prevention published in May of last year lends credence to Logemann’s claim. According to a team of 19 European researchers who reviewed more than 400 studies from 2000 to January 2015, school-based programs to mitigate childhood obesity were found far more effective than seminars directed at parents to teach healthy living at home.

Effective interventions, researchers wrote, included teacher counseling and teacher role-modeling, availability of healthy cafeteria options, limitation of unhealthy alternatives, changes in recess practices, promotion of physical education and parental involvement “via assignments, meetings, informative material and encouraging them to improve the home environment.”

“Use of incentives for children, social marketing techniques, collaboration with local stakeholders were found to increase effectiveness,” they wrote. “Programs that focused only on educational sessions and material for parents, without promoting relevant environmental and policy changes, were found to be less effective.”

The study added that the numbers are mostly pegged to a rise in obesity among kids.

These rates were already bad before the lockdowns and school closures. Now they are just getting worse thanks to the COVIDiots who are using the virus as an excuse to grab power away from the American people.

SEE IT: Amtrak Train Derails in Montana, Killing Several and Injuring Dozens

Investigators still don’t know what caused the derailment.

In a cruel twist of irony, the end of Rail Safety Week was marred by tragedy in Montana on Saturday, as an Amtrak passenger train careened of the tracks in Montana, perplexing investigators.

The incident caused a vast majority of the 10-car train to derail, injuring dozens and killing at least three people.

Amtrak joined federal safety officials Sunday to investigate a Montana train derailment that left at least three people dead, seven people hospitalized and rural communities scrambling to provide food and shelter to the stunned survivors.

The westbound Empire Builder train with 141 passengers and 17 crew members derailed Saturday afternoon near Joplin, a town of less than 200 people a few miles from the Canadian border in Liberty County. The tragedy occurred as Amtrak was closing out its nationwide, annual Rail Safety Week.

“The NTSB is launching a go-team to investigate Saturday’s derailment of Amtrak’s Empire Builder train,” the National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter, adding that the team would be based in Great Falls, Montana.

Images of the carnage were soon trending on social media.

Vaccine Mandate Cold Cause Healthcare Worker Shortage in Major City

This is WILD!

Published

on

With the number of Americans concerned about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine remaining steady, establishments that are now dealing in vaccine mandates are in for a rude awakening.

For months now, the vaccination rate has remained steady here in the United States, despite full FDA approval for some of the inoculations, and a steady stream of pressure from the Biden administration.  The issue is that, of all the folks who want to receive a vaccine, nearly all have.  Those remaining unvaccinated are doing so by choice.

And that’s why a coming vaccine mandate could wreak havoc on the New York City healthcare worker population.

New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state’s health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them.

Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state’s deadline.

“We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal,” she said.

That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and “exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.”

And, to make matters worse, those who find themselves terminated for their choice to remain unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment benefits, further infuriating those who believe that waive their cache to receive an inoculation are being discriminated against.
