The reason it matters is because if the virus responsible for COVID-19 and the subsequent response to it came from a lab, then we need to reassess the future of so-called gain-of-function research that allows for the weaponization of viruses. As you might expect, there’s big money involved in this kind of research, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that vested interests would try to cover up its origin, were it indeed a lab creation, simply to protect their funding and future careers.1...

This, despite former White House Coronavirus Task Force lead Dr. Anthony Fauci’s February 25, 2020, assurance that the U.S. was “reasonably well prepared” as it has had a pandemic plan in place “for years.”3 As noted in a Fox News article4 published in mid-April 2020, many of the statements have not...

Posted by on Nov 2, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Low Zinc Levels Increase Risk of Death With COVID

Although conventional medicine suggests there is no known cure for viral infections, there are steps you can take to support your body’s immune system as it fights a virus. Antibiotics are not effective since they work only against bacteria. Because a virus cannot replicate independently, it inserts into your normal cells, where it uses your cell function to multiply. Your body uses a complex process to find, fight and destroy viruses. One way it does this is to use zinc inside the cells to stop the virus from replicating. Zinc may...

Posted by on Nov 1, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on 3 Myths About Running and Your Health

Posted by on Oct 27, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on How COVID-19 Vaccine Trials Are Rigged
