What would it take for antivaxxers and climate science deniers to ‘wake up’? | Clive Hamilton

Facts are puny against the carapace of denial when people’s sense of self is at stake. However, in the case of Covid deniers, imminent death seems to do the trickIn 1927, an article in the venerable medical journal the Lancet commented on the opposition to smallpox vaccination in terms that have an eerie resonance today.“We still meet the belief … that vaccination is a gigantic fraud deliberately perpetuated for the sake of gain … The opposition to vaccination … like many emotional reactions, is...

But recent research published in the Lancet provides a stark reminder: a majority of the more than 1 billion smokers globally became addicted by the end of their teenage years. Over the past two decades, one out of every five smokers globally became addicted to nicotine by age 15.

Why England’s sudden lifting of covid restrictions is a massive gamble

England is about to take a huge gamble.  On Monday, July 19, the country is ditching all of its remaining pandemic-related restrictions. People will be able to go to nightclubs, or gather in groups as large as they like. They will not be legally compelled to wear masks at all, and can stop social distancing. The government, with an eye on media coverage, has dubbed it “Freedom Day,” and said the lifting of safety measures will be irreversible.  At the same time, coronavirus cases are rapid...

There's more evidence that getting both doses of Pfizer's vaccine may be 'critical' to protecting against emerging variants

Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine Pete Bannan/MediaNews Group/Daily Local News via Getty Images Pfizer's vaccine worked against five coronavirus variants in the first lab study to directly compare them.

Long-retracted papers are still cited in major journals

Even after scientific papers are retracted, hundreds of studies cite them as evidence. Roughly four retractions occur per 10,000 publications, mostly in medicine, life sciences, and chemistry journals.Journals should implement control measures that block the publication of papers that cite retracted papers. Andrew Wakefield's 1998 study linking vaccines with autism was riddled with holes. All 12 children involved were handpicked, which is antithetical to clinical research. The now-deregistered...

Study says animals are the likely source of COVID-19

BEIJING — A joint World Health Organization-China study on the origins of COVID-19 says that transmission of the virus from bats to humans through another animal is the most likely scenario and that a lab leak is “extremely unlikely,” according to a draft copy obtained by The Associated Press. The findings offer little new insight into how the virus first emerged and leave many questions unanswered, though that was as expected. But the report does provide more detail on the reasoning behind the ...

People who've had COVID-19 might only need one vaccine jab - and saving shots on them could free up millions of doses for others

Justin Tallis - Pool / Getty Images Some experts believe people who have had COVID-19 should get just one shot of two-dose coronavirus vaccines. This would give these people protection while freeing up vaccine doses for others, they say. However, other experts warn the approach could be logistically difficult and scientifically "risky."  Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Experts are divided on whether people who have already had COVID-19 need a full coronavirus vacci...

Pfizer and BioNTech recommend that a second dose is administered 21 days after the first. The finding is a vindication of the approach taken by the U.K. government to delay a second dose by up to 12 weeks so it could use limited supplies to deliver a single dose to more people, and could encourage others to follow suit....
