My intention in this recording is not to persuade anyone. I am merely presenting the current data as it stands without the politics, public health, and media biases that should be obvious to us all by now. The data and research can change, but as it stands right now, this is my best interpretation of what is happening with vaccination status and naturally acquired immunity. I have also added my personal opinion on these matters which should not be taken as fact. I believe I have done a good job of separating the data from my thoughts on the data. I am open to being wrong and/or misunderstanding the data, so as long as you are cordial I encourage you to push back on what I present here.

This is a follow up to my recent post where I shared concern over excessive hand sanitizing in our children. This matter is also a signal to the deeper issue of lack of transparency and discourse in our public health systems. You cannot get to the best strategy by shutting out those who push back against your narrative, and governmental health and medicine has become a silo of like-minded individuals who can't see beyond their narrative. Citizen scientists need to step up and criticize actions taken by our government with reasonable points of view and solid evidence. Debate and dialogue is the only way to better a struggling system. If you are interested in direct study links, you can find them below. They are all from credible sources and show A- the inability to show surface level transmission and B- the potential downside of excessive hand sanitizing in kids. As always I appreciate commentary that goes against my point of view. All I ask is you bring evidence to the conversation, not anecdote. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/more/science-and-research/surface-transmission.html https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32919072/ https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00251-4#ref-CR7 https://www.pharmacytoday.org/article/S1042-0991(17)30602-3/pdf https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32623176/

If you'd like to watch the video version of this podcast, follow this link https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQYkLjcF-bt/ As soon as you discuss controversial topics- in health or otherwise- you get labeled. One team uses a label to discredit you while the other team uses the same label to embrace you and make you their darling. I am not interested in being on a team. In fact, the idea of social teams driven by collective ideologies is the biggest barrier between us and a health society. How can you tell the difference between a conspiracy theorist and a critical thinker?
Today I'm posting an interview I had with Chris Mercanti of Inside Fitness. We discuss the effects of COVID-19 on our wellbeing, how to influence your children to be healthy, and what we need to do as citizens to affect governmental change and get healthy as a community.

I was fired up this morning. The incentives are all wrong. The actions taken by our governments are 'lip service' at best. THIS is why we have an obesity epidemic!
The back-and-forth regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is an emotional, narrative-driven battle between conspiracy theorists and the status quo. Both of these groups are unhelpful. Everyone who puts their best effort toward being informed deserves to publicly share their opinion and be involved in the discussion. Those who prefer to be informed by narrative (on both sides) should go join a reddit subgroup instead. Able citizens need to be interested in reading, viewing the data, and opening up a conversation about what it all means. Suppose the average citizen continues to be educated by social media and traditional news outlets without looking more deeply into the matter. In that case, We will never push public Health to find the best solution. Whether you agree or disagree with the lockdown method, you don't deserve to share your opinion unless you have done your absolute best to understand the data. That means reading reports, testing definitions, and other publicly available information that allows you to form an educated opinion. It doesn't have to be perfect, and none of us have to agree on what it all means- but if we are not willing to step up to the plate and assess this crisis at a ground level, we don't deserve the most favourable outcome.

The Outlaws of Health Show returns. The madness of COVID-19, Lockdown Mentality, and proof that the government never has, and never will have the best interest of your health in mind.
At what point do the actions taken to prevent a crisis do more harm than the crisis itself? I don't know, but it is time to ask the question with a certain level of seriousness. Mental, emotional, and physical health are being overlooked. Deaths of despair are rising. Obesity is skyrocketing. Small businesses are dying. And kids can't even play outdoor sports, gyms can't guide outdoor exercise, and 30,000 square foot gymnastics clubs can't have 10 kids inside. All while retailers like Costco can have 1500 people in their stores at anytime while making record profits.
This is an audio version of my blog. In this clip I discuss the importance of forcing yourself down the path of greatest resistance to reach your goals. If you'd prefer to read the blog, click here https://tommycaldwell.net/the-fitness-philosophy-blog/.
To overcome a destructive diet, you must be disinterested No, I don't want a piece of cake, or another drink. Willpower? Willpower is a myth. It's a fable that unfit people use to justify another person's fitness. Discipline will get you through the rollercoaster of transformation, but it's not enough to get you to the finish line. Total disinterest in the thing that you can't seem to say 'no' to is the only path to permanent change.
Why would a fit, healthy individual needlessly stuff himself with supplements? Because nerds say so! In all seriousness, I'm sure Dr.Rhonda Patrick is a helpful person and a good human being. I'm equally sure that she is smarter than I am, but she lacks a holistic view of health. I don't mean holistic as in 'but my cancer curing essential oils'. I mean holistic as in seeing beyond the test tube. But this trend toward chasing arbitrary blood chemistry- usually backed by bad science- needs reform.
If you're overweight, out of shape, and all kinds of unhealthy, the responsibility to change is on you. Assuming that the government, medical system, or big pharma has something to do with your poor condition is a surefire way to continue down a destructive path.
