Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Bill Gates Secretly Dictates Global Food Policy Too

Bill Gates has built a global empire around his technologies and “philanthropic” endeavors, the magnitude of which is now becoming increasingly clear. His sheer wealth has allowed him to become a veritable superpower in his own right. He’s not only risen to become the largest funder of the World Health Organization and the unelected global COVID-19 health czar but he’s also a secret powerbroker of the global food system. As revealed in the AGRA Watch report,1 “The Man Behind the Curtain: The Gates...

Posted by on Aug 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on What Are the Effects of Masking Facial Expressions?

Glutathione Deficiency May Be Associated With COVID Severity

Posted by on Aug 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Glutathione Deficiency May Be Associated With COVID Severity

Coronaviruses were identified in the mid-1960s and so named for the crown-like spikes on the surface of the cell. Until the first SARS-CoV arrived in 2003, there were four common coronaviruses.1 The CDC’s list of symptoms for these viruses shows that they are the same as those of the common cold.2 They include a runny nose, sore throat, headache, fever and cough. However, from what scientists have discovered since the start of the global pandemic, the symptoms and long-term effects are far different for SARS-CoV-2. Initial symptoms...

Why Aren’t We Promoting Health to Combat COVID?

Posted by on Aug 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Aren’t We Promoting Health to Combat COVID?

It’s an unfortunate fact that health officials and pandemic response authorities, by and large, are completely ignoring the role a healthy lifestyle plays in the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing instead, almost exclusively, on the necessity for a vaccine. According to Reuters,1 the U.S. government is planning to launch an “overwhelming” COVID-19 vaccine campaign come November. An unnamed “senior White House administration official” is quoted saying:2 “The fine line we are walking is getting the American people...

Could Natural Lithium in Tap Water Help Stem Suicides?

Posted by on Aug 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Could Natural Lithium in Tap Water Help Stem Suicides?

In 1817, Johan August Arfwedson discovered lithium in the mineral petalite. It is also found in several different types of ore and makes up about 0.002% of the Earth’s crust. Up until the 1990s, the U.S. produced most of the lithium on the global market.1 The primary way the metal is used in industry is to refine iron, copper, zinc and nickel. Lithium is also absorbed by plants from groundwater and soil, which allows the metal to be distributed to animals and humans. Historically, lithium salts and mineral water have been used to treat...

Posted by on Aug 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Testing the Most Effective Method to Manipulate Minds

By the looks of it, we are about to face one of the most aggressive vaccine campaigns ever created. According to Reuters,1 the U.S. government is planning to launch an “overwhelming” COVID-19 vaccine campaign come November, provided the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gives one or more vaccine candidates the green light. Considering former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb2 is now on Pfizer’s board of directors,3 and Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is one of the lead candidates, jaded minds might assume the FDA...

Fauci Recommends Goggles for Protection From COVID-19

Posted by on Aug 12, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Fauci Recommends Goggles for Protection From COVID-19

As if universal mask recommendations weren’t enough, the last week of July 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci started flouting the recommendation to wear goggles and full face shields as well, as the mucous membranes of your eyes can also serve as entryways for viruses. Fauci is also urging everyone to get their flu shots as soon as they become available.1 As reported by The Hill:2 “During an interview with ABC News medical correspondent Jennifer Ashton, Fauci was asked whether the U.S. would one day recommend eye protection due to the...

Flu Vaccination Associated With Increased Viral Shedding

Posted by on Aug 11, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Flu Vaccination Associated With Increased Viral Shedding

When your body is infected with a disease-causing virus such as influenza, the virus is “shed” into the environment, via your saliva and other bodily fluids and skin lesions. If someone comes in contact with that shed virus, it’s possible that they, too, will become infected with the virus. There’s still a lot of unknowns when it comes to viral shedding. How long a person sheds a virus, when shedding occurs and whether it occurs at the onset of symptoms or prior to symptoms, varies by virus and are influenced by a...
