Treatise on the A/H1N1 flu vaccines from the United States

Treatise on the A/H1N1 flu vaccines from the United States
Authors: Cynthia Janak, Research Journalist, President of an International Coalition and Dr. True Ott, PhD. ND. Naturopath, Investigative Clinician.
Since March, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through the news media, have created the impression that a “novel” strain of H1N1 (swine) flu virus has appeared and that it will mutate and spread pandemically all across the world. Deemed “unstoppable,” the only way to protect the world’s nearly 7 billion people, according to WHO et al, is to “develop” a vaccine, produce nearly five billion doses of it and vaccinate the entire planet—children and pregnant women first.
The evidence, however, shows that the “novel” H1N1 “virus” strain is a product of bio-weapons research and the patented vaccine has been under development for at least four years. The implication of this research undermines the WHO/CDC/media-created impression that a global cooperative of public health officials and vaccine manufacturers are responding appropriately to a pending public health emergency.
In March, 2009, a new strain of influenza was detected in the country of Mexico and was deemed a “novel” or new and unique virus. Since that time, there have been several admissions reported in the mainstream media that provide foundational clues as to our contention that the H1N1 influenza vaccine was patented to be sold as the antidote for an H1N1 influenza strain created in bioweapons labs.
CNN reported April 24, 2009 that CDC Influenza Division Director Nancy Cox, PhD, said, “The new virus has genes from North American swine and avian influenza, human influenza, and swine influenza normally found in Asia and Europe.” (1) The next day (April 25, 2009) CNN reported that WHO Epidemic and Pandemic Disease spokesman Gregory Hartl said, “The strain of the virus seen in Mexico is worrisome because it has mutated from older strains.” (2) On May 22, 2009, the World Health Organization’s “Weekly Epidemiological Record” noted that, “Most cases [of swine flu] appear to have uncomplicated, typical influenza-like illness and [afflicted individuals] recover spontaneously.” (3) This appears to be patently true, as the CDC admits that reported death rates per thousands of infections are much lower with this “novel virus” than death rates commonly ascribed to “seasonal” influenza.
On June 11, 2009, the WHO Regional Office for Europe announced, “Today WHO raised the level of influenza A(H1N1) pandemic alert to phase 6, as sustained community-level transmission of the virus is taking place in more than one region of the world. The term pandemic means that an influenza virus that is new to human beings has appeared is spreading and is causing disease in many parts of the world. Globally, it is of moderate severity.” (4) Regardless that the epidemiological data, May, 2009, Novartis received a $289 million order from the US Department of Health and Human Services for A(H1N1) vaccine with proprietary adjuvant MF59© (5)
This paper will focus on eight areas: (1) Novartis patent information regarding flu vaccine composition. (2) Individual ingredients involved in the creation of this vaccine. Reports documenting adverse events in regards to ingredients of this vaccine. (3) Genetically modified vaccines and foods and their dangers. (4) Vaccine challenge and re-challenge in regards to multiple vaccinations. (5) Aluminum and thimerosal content of vaccines. (6) Other pandemic influenza vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency. (7) Mandatory vaccination hazards. (8) Preventative measures.
Novartis patent information – Pub. No.: US 2009/0047353 A1, Pub. Date: Feb. 19, 2009 -
Abstract – The invention seeks to avoid components in split vaccines that could cause an excessive Th2 response. Thus the invention provides an immunogenic composition comprising a split influenza virus antigen and a Th1 adjuvant, wherein the antigen is preferably prepared from a virus grown in cell culture (e.g., it is free from egg proteins.)
Split virions – (Disclosure of the Invention)
0007…the clinical and epidemiological features of ORS are suggestive of hypersensitivity, and so it has been proposed that the vaccine may upset the natural Th1/Th2 balance,
0008 …the invention seeks to minimize the possibility that a split vaccine might cause an excessive Th2 response. In a situation where influenza vaccines have to be produced in a hurry (e.g. after a pandemic outbreak) then pressures on manufacturers might inadvertently result in the release of vaccines that suffer from the same problems as the partially un-split aggregated Canadian batches from 2000-01.
The Split Influenza Virus Antigen
0032 – The influenza virus may be a reassortant strain, and may have been obtained by reverse genetics techniques.
Reverse genetics techniques [e.g. 16 – 20] allow influenza viruses with desired genome segments to be prepared in vitro using plasmids.
… they involve expressing (a) DNA molecules that encode desired viral RNA molecules
(b) DNA molecules that encode viral proteins
… it is also possible to use a helper virus to provide some of the RNA and proteins.
0036 – may include one or more RNA segments
from a A/PR/8/34 virus (typically 6 segments from A/PR/8/34, with HA and N segments being from a vaccine strains, i.e. a 6:2 reassortant).
from a A/WSN/33 virus,
or from any other virus strain useful for generating reassortant viruses for vaccine preparation
0037 – viruses used as the source of the antigens are grown on cell culture.
Mammalian origin
origin include, but are not limited to, hamster, cattle, primate (including humans and monkeys) and dog cells.
Cell types may be used, such as kidney cells, fibroblasts, retinal cells, lung cells, etc.
Hamster cells – BHK21 or HKCC
Monkey cells – African green monkey – kidney cells – Vero cell line.
Dog cells – kidney cells – MDCK cell line.
Thus suitable cell lines include, but are not limited to: MDCK; CHO; 293T; BHK; Vero; MRC-5; PER C6; WI-38; etc.
MDCK cells (28-31), derived from Madin Dabry canine kidney;
Vero cells derived from African green monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) kidney
or PER C6 cells [35] derived from human embryonic retinoblasts.
Ducks (e.g. duck retina)
Hens e.g. chicken embryo fibroblasts
Examples include avian embryonic stem cells… chicken embryonic stem cells.
0043 – trace amounts of host cell DNA may be present.
Oil-in-Water Emulsion Adjuvants
0100 – Emulsions can include oils such as those from animal or vegetable source.
Vegetable oils include nuts, seeds and grains, peanut oil, soybean oil, coconut oil, and olive oil, the most commonly available exemplify the nut oils
Jojoba oil obtained from the jojobean.
Seed oils include safflower oil, cotton-weed oil, sunflower seed oil, sesame seed oil and the like.
Grain group, corn oil is the most readily available but the oil of other cereal grains such as wheat, oats, rye, rice, teff, triticale and the like…
Fats and oils from mammalian milk are metabolizable and may therefore be used.
Fish oils – For example, cod liver oil, shark liver oils, and whale oil such as spermaceti.
Squalene, the saturated analog to squalene is also a preferred oil.
0107 – A submicron emulsion of squalene, Tween 80, and Span 85, also including an immunostimulatory oligonucleotide.
Emulsion by volume can be about 5% squalene,
About 0.5% polysorbate 80
And about 0.5% Span 85
Pharmaceutical Compositions
0113 – The composition may include preservatives such as thiomersal or 2-phenoxyethanol … (i.e. less than 5mcg/ml) mercurial material e.g. thiomersal-free.
0119 – The inclusion of a preservative is preferred in multidose arrangements.
0144 – Multiple doses will typically be administered at least 1 week apart.
0145 – Vaccines produced by the invention may be administered to patients at substantially the same time as:
Measles vaccine, a mumps vaccine, rubella vaccine, a MMR vaccine, a varicella vaccine, a MMRV vaccine, a diphtheria vaccine, a tetanus vaccine, a pertussis vaccine, a DPT vaccine, a conjugated II. Influenza type a vaccine, an inactivated poliovirus vaccine, a respiratory syncytial virus vaccine, a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, etc.
Modes for carrying out the invention
Oil-in-Water Emulsion Adjuvant Favouring Th1 Response
Human Trials
0161 – split influenza vaccines were adjuvanted with an oil-in-water emulsion having an organic phase made of two oils (a-tocopherol and squalene). And an aqueous phase of phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing Tween80 as emulsifying agent.
2.5% sqalene (v/v)

Tocopherol – Vitamin E (not known if tested in a vaccine environment) – Side effects –
… in high doses. An increased risk of bleeding has been proposed, particularly in patients taking blood-thinning agents such as warfarin, heparin, or aspirin; or in patients with vitamin K deficiency. Recent evidence suggests that regular use of high-dose vitamin E supplements may increase the risk of death (from "all causes") by a small amount,
Rats treated with weekly oral doses of about 50 mg of a vitamin E concentrate were found to have fatty changes in the liver. In addition, intimal sclerosis of the aorta was seen, with the over-development of collagenous tissue at the base of the aortic valve and in the medial coat of the aorta (Marxs et al., 1947).
Rats given high doses of alpha-tocopherol had elevated liver cholesterol levels and altered tissue fatty acids (Alfin-Slater et al., 1972).
Groups of weanling female Wistar rats were fed diets containing 0, 25, 250, 2500, 10,000, or 25,000 IU vitamin E/kg diet for 8 and 16 months. Vitamin E depressed body-weight gain at concentrations of 10,000 and 25,000 IU/kg diet, and increased relative heart and spleen weights were seen at 8 months and 16 months, respectively. There was an increase in plasma alkaline phosphatase and a decrease in the ash content of bone after 16 months at these two dose levels. Prothrombin time was reduced at 12 months, but not at 9 or 16 months. Urinary excretion of creatine and creatinine was normal at 11 months. No histological examinations were reported (Yang & Desai, 1977).
Squalene - MF59, a proprietary adjuvant containing squalene –
A link between the health problems of Gulf-War veterans and possible presence of squalene in vaccines received by these soldiers has been suggested. One published report has suggested that some army veterans who received anthrax vaccines developed anti-squalene antibodies and that these antibodies caused disabilities.
Analysis of additional personnel revealed that in all but one case (19/20; 95%), ASA were restricted to personnel immunized with lots of vaccine known to contain squalene. Except for one symptomatic individual, positive clinical findings in 17 ASA-negative personnel were restricted to 4 individuals receiving vaccine from lots containing squalene. ASA were not present prior to vaccination in pre-immunization sera available from 4 AVIP personnel. Three of these individuals became ASA positive after vaccination. These results suggest that the production of ASA in GWS patients is linked to the presence of squalene in certain lots of anthrax vaccine. 2002: Asa Pamela B; Wilson Russell B; Garry Robert F, Antibodies to squalene in recipients of anthrax vaccine. Experimental and molecular pathology 2002;73(1):19-27.
Squalene is a cholesterol precursor, which stimulates the immune system nonspecifically. We demonstrate that one intradermal injection of this adjuvant lipid can induce joint-specific inflammation in arthritis-prone DA rats. Histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses revealed erosion of bone and cartilage, and that development of polyarthritis coincided with infiltration of ß+ T cells. – Our demonstration that an autoadjuvant can trigger chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation may give clues to the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis, and it raises new questions concerning the role of endogenous molecules with adjuvant properties in chronic inflammatory diseases.

Polysorbate80 – surfactant
According to the MSDS sheet at Science, section 11: Toxicological Information, it was tested for inhalation and ingestion and was shown to be slightly hazardous on skin contact, ingestion and inhalation. However these are minor compared to other potential side effects of its use especially in an intravenous or immunologic setting. In the same section of toxicological information it states that it may cause reproductive effects, it may cause cancer, and may be a mutagenic, (change the genetics), in animals…
PubMed.Gov a service of the U.S. Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health, a report shows that neonatal rats were injected with small doses of polysorbate 80 and the results were major effects on the reproductive organs of the rats, resulting in infertility.
PubMed studied Polysorbate 80 in an intravenous vitamin mix given to a pregnant woman who suffered anaphylactic shock where polysorbate 80 was identified as the causative agent,
and yet another study showed two patients who developed hypersensitive reactions to red blood cell growth hormones and subsequent skin testing indicated polysorbate 80 as the culprit. This finding might have implications in the recent increase in the incidence of pure red cell aplasia.
3-O-deacylated monophosphoryl lipid A (3dMPL) - If MPL is immunogenic, it raises the possibility of a dangerous "cross reaction." The human body is full of lipids. Antibodies and immune cells responding to MPL might also respond to other lipids in the body, thus breaking tolerance for endogenous lipids (those native to the human body) and initiating autoimmunity.
Thiomersal – Ethyl mercury
Public concern had been expressed about the health effects of mercury exposure of any sort, and the elimination of mercury from vaccines was considered a feasible means of reducing an infant’s total exposure to mercury in a world where other environmental sources of exposure are more difficult or impossible to eliminate (e.g. certain foods).
Used as a preservative in vaccines, thimerosal has been linked to autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in children. Thimerosal carries risk of serious adverse effects because it contains mercury, which can be neurotoxic at certain levels. Behind uranium, mercury is the second most toxic substance known to man.
Sodium Chloride - also known as common salt, table salt, or halite, is an ionic compound with the formula NaCl.
Tris buffer - TromeThamine, USP is chemically designated 2-amino-2-(hydroxymethyl)-1, 3-propanediol, a solid readily soluble in water, also classified as an organic amine buffer.
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with tromeThamine. It is also not known whether tromeThamine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. TromeThamine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Tham Solution is administered to a nursing mother.
have not been performed to evaluate carcinogenic potential, mutagenic potential or effects on fertility.
L-Histidine - is an essential amino acid that cannot be formed by other nutrients, and must be in the diet to be available to the body.Most often recognized as a precursor to the allergy symptom producing hormone histamine, both histidine and histamine have essential roles in the body beyond tormenting allergy sufferers.
Sodium borate – Borax
Introduction, Paragraph 5 – Prior to the study reported here, there had been an earlier study that suggested borate exposure was associated with symptoms of acute respiratory irritation, such as dryness of the mouth, nose, or throat; dry cough; nose bleeds; sore throat; productive cough; shortness of breath; and chest tightness.

*Aluminum salts – Aluminum phosphate and/or aluminum hydroxide
Aluminum phosphate -
Phosphate salts can irritate the digestive tract and cause stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation, and other problems. Do not take phosphate salts unless prescribed by a healthcare professional if:
You have kidney disease
You have heart disease.
You have high or low calcium blood levels.
You have high phosphate blood levels.
You have a condition which causes the body to retain fluid (edema), including heart failure, liver problems (cirrhosis), and other conditions.
Aluminum hydroxide – Aluminum hydroxide side effects -
Aluminum overdose - Seek emergency medical attention.
Symptoms of an aluminum overdose include weight loss, decreased appetite, general feeling of sickness, muscle weakness, kidney failure, and softening of the bones.
Stop taking aluminum hydroxide and seek emergency medical attention if you experience an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives).
Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Continue to take aluminum and talk to your doctor if you experience constipation. Increased fluid intake may lessen constipation
*QS21 – Saponin –
QS-21 induced mild local erythema, induration, and tenderness lasting 24-72h in all patients at the 100-mcg dose. The 200-pg dose of QS-21 was associated with local tenderness and inflammation lasting 2-10days in all patients as well as mild flu-like symptoms, including low grade fever (<38.5°C), headache, and myalgia lasting 8-24h after most immunizations. No neurological abnormalities or other side effects were observed.

Histidine and Polysorbate80 - Background: There are no pharmacologic strategies to prevent embolism bubble-induced blood clot formation. The authors conducted experiments to measure thrombin production in sheared whole blood in the presence and absence of bubbles and three surface-active compounds.The time-dependent enhancement of thrombin production presented in figure 1B also appears in the data obtained using quiescent whole blood samples with and without exposure to histamine, as is depicted in figure 2A. Only means ± SDs of the peak fluorescence intensity data (emission wavelength, 460 nm) for each group at each time point are shown. The level of blood activation increased slightly more than 2-fold in the untreated quiescent sample after 30 min. In the histamine-treated sample, thrombin production increased more than 5-fold from the baseline value after 30 min. After the initial time point, significantly more thrombin was formed in the histamine-activated samples (P < 0.004 in all cases).

Genetically modified vaccines and foods and their dangers. The Novartis patent uses VLP’s (virus like particles) which are referenced as split influenza virus antigen, section 1.1 - Abstract.
What combinations have been tried?
It is now possible for plants to be engineered with genes taken from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. Scientists have worked on some interesting combinations:
Spider genes were inserted into goat DNA, in hopes that the goat milk would contain spider web protein for use in bulletproof vests.
Cow genes turned pigskins into cowhides.
Jellyfish genes lit up pigs’ noses in the dark.
Arctic fish genes gave tomatoes and strawberries tolerance to frost.
Potatoes that glowed in the dark when they needed watering.
Human genes were inserted into corn to produce spermicide.
Current field trials include:
Corn engineered with human genes (Dow)
Sugarcane engineered with human genes (Hawaii Agriculture Research Center)
Corn engineered with jellyfish genes (Stanford University)
Tobacco engineered with lettuce genes (University of Hawaii)
Rice engineered with human genes (Applied Phytologics)
Corn engineered with hepatitis virus genes (Prodigene)
What kinds of traits have been added to food crops?
Although there are attempts to increase nutritional benefits or productivity, the two main traits that have been added to date are herbicide tolerance and the ability of the plant to produce its own pesticide. These results have no health benefit, only economic benefit.
Crops such as Bt cotton produce pesticides inside the plant. This kills or deters insects, saving the farmer from having to spray pesticides. The plants themselves are toxic, and not just to insects. Farmers in India, who let their sheep graze on Bt cotton plants after the harvest, saw thousands of sheep die.
Why do genetically engineered foods have antibiotic resistant genes in them?
The techniques used to transfer genes have a very low success rate, so the genetic engineers attach "marker genes" that are resistant to antibiotics to help them to find out which cells have taken up the new DNA. These marker genes are resistant to antibiotics that are commonly used in human and veterinary medicine. Some scientists believe that eating GE food containing these marker genes could encourage gut bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance.
What are the problems created through genetic engineering of food and crops?
Genetic engineers continually encounter unintended side effects – GM plants create toxins, react to weather differently, contain too much or too little nutrients, become diseased or malfunction and die. When foreign genes are inserted, dormant genes may be activated or the functioning of genes altered, creating new or unknown proteins, or increasing or decreasing the output of existing proteins inside the plant. The effects of consuming these new combinations of proteins are unknown.
What are the potential dangers of eating GM foods?
There are a number of dangers that broadly fall into the categories of potential toxins, allergens, carcinogens, new diseases, antibiotic resistant diseases, and nutritional problems.
Hasn’t research shown GM foods to be safe?
The only feeding study done with humans showed that GMOs survived inside the stomach of the people eating GMO food. No follow-up studies were done.
Various feeding studies in animals have resulted in potentially pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, smaller brains, livers, and testicles, partial atrophy or increased density of the liver, odd shaped cell nuclei and other unexplained anomalies, false pregnancies and higher death rates.
What indications are there that GM foods are causing problems?
Soon after GM soy was introduced to the UK, soy allergies skyrocketed by 50 percent.
In March 2001, the Center for Disease Control reported that food is responsible for twice the number of illnesses in the U.S. compared to estimates just seven years earlier. This increase roughly corresponds to the period when Americans have been eating GM food.
What about GM hormones in milk?
Milk from rBGH-treated cows contains an increased amount of the hormone IGF-1, which is one of the highest risk factors associated with breast and prostate cancer, but no one is tracking this in relation to cancer rates.
Is there any documented instance of adverse effects of GMOs on people?
One epidemic was rare, serious, and fast acting, and therefore more easily discovered. Called EMS, it was traced to a GM brand of the food supplement L-tryptophan. In the 1980's, the contaminated brand killed about 100 Americans and caused sickness or disability in about 5,000-10,000 others.
Why are children particularly susceptible to the effects of GM foods?
Children face the greatest risk from the potential dangers of GM foods for the same reasons that they also face the greatest risk from other hazards like pesticides and radiation, these include:
Young, fast-developing bodies are influenced most.
Children are more susceptible to allergies.
Children are more susceptible to problems with milk.
Children are more susceptible to nutritional problems.
Children are in danger from antibiotic resistant diseases.
Vaccine challenge and rechallenge in regards to vaccinations. With the proposed pandemic vaccine program citizens will receive 3 injections approximately 3 weeks apart. Challenge is the first injection and rechallenge are subsequent injections.
Case reports - two published case reports of neurological disease following challenge and rechallenge with hepatitis B vaccine. Immunization Safety Review: Hepatitis B Vaccine and Demyelinating Neurological Disorders (2002), Board on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP), Institute of Medicine (IOM), page 39
The first pertains to a woman diagnosed with leukoencephalitis7 following each of her second and third shots of recombinant hepatitis B vaccine (Konstantinou et al., 2001).
The second case report pertains to sensorineural deafness (Biacabe et al., 1997). Although the patient appears to have suffered hearing loss twice after vaccination, the time frame is too short to be suggestive of an immunemediated reaction.
…tabulation prepared by CDC of case reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) between 1990 and 2001 lists eight cases stating evidence of rechallenge adverse events. These included a variety of clinical descriptions, including neuropathy, MS, and brachial neuritis.
Reports included 125 cases of MS, 15 cases of brachial neuritis, 83 cases of optic neuritis, 46 cases of peripheral neuritis, 91 cases of GBS, 30 cases of ADEM or demyelinating disease not otherwise specified, and 109 cases of myelitis. Most of these reports were included in only one outcome category, but some (73) were classified in more than one.
The published medical literature provides case reports of several demyelinating diseases following hepatitis B vaccination. These range, for example, from optic neuritis in a 28-year-old man (Albitar et al., 1997), to GBS in a 45-year-old woman (Creange et al., 1999), and transverse myelitis in a 40-year-old health care worker (Tartaglino et al., 1995).
Bases for the early immune response after rechallenge or component vaccination in an animal model of acute Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonitis, CIMOLAI N. (1) ; MAH D. G. (1) ; TAYLOR G. P. (1) ; MORRISON B. J. (1) ; 1) Division of Medical Microbiology, Department of Pathology, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, CANADA
Abstract - The pathology of Mycoplasma pneumoniae pulmonary infection for a hamster model was examined after whole bacterium rechallenge or component vaccination. Animals which, after an initial infection, were rechallenged with either live or heat-killed M. pneumoniae inocula developed severe early recall lesions in the first 3 days. In contrast, animals infected once develop maximum histopathology at approximately 10-14 days. A severe perivascular inflammatory cellular infiltrate developed in the rechallenged groups, and pulmonary pathology could also be elicited by rechallenge with bacterial growth medium components.

Challenge re-challenge refers to a situation where re-exposure of an individual to an agent (e.g., a drug or a toxin) elicits a similar adverse reaction to that seen following the initial exposure. The secondary reaction associated with re-challenge may either reproduce the features associated with the primary challenge, or may lead to worsening of the condition that was provoked or induced by the initial exposure. Alternatively, the risk of an adverse outcome may increase with increasing exposure.

B. Riddell’s criteria, Page 146
4. De-challenge - De-challenge is the disappearance or improvement of AE after the treatment is withdrawn and is a positive indication of relatedness. AEs can, however, persist after treatment is withdrawn, which indicates either that there was no relatedness or that the AE was a persistent injury.
5. Re-challenge – Re-challenge is the re-introduction of a treatment, which is then associated with the same or a similar AE, and is a good indication of causation. An AE that does not recur can signal a lack of causation, but it might also indicate that tolerance has developed. Because just the potential association of a treatment and an adverse reaction may pre-effect its re-introduction (re-administration of penicillin to a person with a history would be ill-advised, for example), it is not always possible to use a re-challenge test on a patient.
10.7. Daibert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and the Evolution of Causation, Page 148
D. Challenge, de-challenge, and re-challenge studies – Challenge, de-challenge and re-challenge studies are useful in suggesting causation. In some cases, however, only a second challenge will result in an AE. Sometime the AE after a challenge is long-lasting and does not exhibit a de-challenge response after the treatment is stopped. Re-challenge can be considered positive when a similar, but not identical, treatment is applied (for example, when another member of the same drug class, a nearly identical vaccine, or a drug with to a shared vaccine component is used).

3. Everyone has their favorite way of using the internet. Many of us search to find what we want, click in to a specific website, read what’s available and click out. That’s not necessarily a bad thing because it’s efficient. We learn to tune out things we don’t need and go straight for what’s essential.
