#157 On Beyond Antibodies (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)
Manage episode 352523235 series 2583721
In this 157th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.
This week, we discuss antibodies. Why is the public health messaging around immunity focused on antibodies, when there is so much more to immunity? Also, the Department of Defense has finally dropped vaccine mandates for the military, and the federal government has affirmed that we are in the middle of a Covid-19 “health emergency” for the 11th consecutive time. The American Academy of Pediatrics is now suggesting the remedy of drugs (at 12 years old) and surgery (at 13) for children suffering from the “disease of obesity.” We’re no longer supposed to use the word field, according to both USC and Michigan’s Dept of Health and Human Services. And male pufferfish make elaborate geometric designs in the sand, all for the love of female pufferfish.
