The History of Blood Flow Restriction Training

Posted by on Jun 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on The History of Blood Flow Restriction Training

If the COVID-19 pandemic is teaching us anything, it’s the importance of being healthy and having a robust immune response. Aside from old age, people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease are at increased risk of complications from the disease, and obesity has been found to be the biggest determinant — after old age — for whether a patient will require hospitalization.1,2  The good news, of course, is that you have a lot of control over your own health. Obesity, insulin resistance, Type 2...

How Short Fingers and Low Testosterone Make You Vulnerable

Posted by on Jun 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on How Short Fingers and Low Testosterone Make You Vulnerable

The so-called “digit ratio” could be a strong indicator of men’s vulnerability to COVID-19, as it serves as an indicator of testosterone exposure in utero. Higher testosterone levels, in turn, are deemed protective due to their effects on the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). The finding comes from researchers at the U.K.’s Swansea University, who delved into why more men than women are dying from COVID-19. It’s been suggested that men may be twice as likely to die from COVID-19 as women,1 and since the...

Deconstructing Bill Gates’ Agenda

Posted by on Jun 13, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Deconstructing Bill Gates’ Agenda

In “How Bill Gates Monopolized Global Health,” I featured Parts 1 and 2 of investigative journalist James Corbett’s report on this unelected global health czar. Part 1 reviewed how Gates ended up in a position to monopolize global health, despite his lack of health or medical education. In Part 2, he laid out Gates’ plan to vaccinate the global population against COVID-19 (although there’s no reason to imagine the plan would remain limited to a single vaccine). Here, in Parts 3 and 4, which you’ll find in...

Why COVID-19 Disproportionately Affects the Elderly

Posted by on Jun 12, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why COVID-19 Disproportionately Affects the Elderly

While the mortality rate for COVID-191 varies around the world (in large part due to variations in testing), one trend is clear: The infection disproportionately affects the elderly, with those over the age of 75 making up the bulk of the deaths. COVID-19 Outcomes Tied to Age Looking at provisional data2 from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you can see a clear and dramatic increase in deaths for each older age group. For young people, especially children, the risk of death is negligible. (Even so, more elderly die from...

COVID-19: Antiparasitic Offers Treatment Hope

Posted by on Jun 12, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on COVID-19: Antiparasitic Offers Treatment Hope

Since the announcement from China in December 2019 that a novel coronavirus had been detected, scientists and researchers have been scrambling to learn more about it, how to prevent it and how to treat it. In the ensuing months a number of different treatment protocols have been proposed, some of which have demonstrated positive results. Questions about privacy concerns, issues with unreasonable force by law enforcement across the world and sheltering in place are just some of the changes triggered by fear. The global population is...

Could Mouthwash Be an Ally in Fighting COVID-19?

Posted by on Jun 11, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Could Mouthwash Be an Ally in Fighting COVID-19?

New research1,2,3 shows many dental mouthwashes destroy the lipid layer of coronaviruses and reduces the replication of the virus in the throat and salivary glands, making mouthwash a potentially useful prophylactic against COVID-19. As noted by the authors:4 “Emerging studies increasingly demonstrate the importance of the throat and salivary glands as sites of virus replication and transmission in early COVID-19 disease. SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped virus, characterized by an outer lipid membrane derived from the host cell from which it...

Coping With COVID-19 Related Stress

Posted by on Jun 11, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Coping With COVID-19 Related Stress

Fear, anxiety, loneliness and financial uncertainty have collided to make the COVID-19 pandemic a stressful time for many. A poll conducted by the American Psychiatric Association in March 2020 revealed that 36% of Americans felt coronavirus was having a serious impact on their mental health, while 59% felt it was seriously impacting their day-to-day lives.1 Top concerns included the possibility of the pandemic having a serious negative affect on finances, which was cited by 57% of respondents, along with fears of running out of food,...

Twitter Falsely Labels All Mercola Links as Unsafe

Posted by on Jun 10, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Twitter Falsely Labels All Mercola Links as Unsafe

The documentary “Plandemic” by Mikki Willis has raised the ante on internet censorship to a whole new level. Across the board, the film has been banned from social media platforms and hidden by Google. If you do an online search for it, all you find are dozens of pages with articles calling it a hoax, a fraud or the dreaded old “conspiracy theory.” The film features Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., a cellular and molecular biologist1 whose research showed that many vaccines are contaminated with gammaretroviruses, thanks to the...

Testing Sewage Sludge May Predict COVID-19 Outbreaks

Posted by on Jun 10, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Testing Sewage Sludge May Predict COVID-19 Outbreaks

Wastewater treatment has been a focus of environmental protection groups for years since the plants are not equipped to treat wastewater containing products of modern life, including toxic chemicals, drugs and cosmetics. It wasn’t until 1972 when the Clean Water Act1 was passed that pollution discharged into U.S. waterways began to be regulated. The Act is supposed to ensure clean water, but after nearly five decades the waterways are in serious trouble. Sources of pollution range from agricultural runoff and industrial release to worn...

Newborns To Be Separated From Parents for COVID-19 Testing

Posted by on Jun 9, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Newborns To Be Separated From Parents for COVID-19 Testing

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the biggest funder of vaccines in the entire world and, according to Gates, its COVID-19 vaccination effort “dwarfs anything we’ve ever worked on before.”1 Indeed, Gates push for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination — and investment in those vaccines — is historically unprecedented. In an April 30, 2020, GatesNotes post,2,3 Gates even states he “suspect[s] the COVID-19 vaccine will become part of the routine newborn immunization schedule.” In other words, a novel...

Carbon Cowboys Versus CAFOs

Posted by on Jun 9, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Carbon Cowboys Versus CAFOs

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many fragile industries to the breaking point and highlighted systemic problems in others, including the industrialized, centralized food system in the U.S. Major meat processing plants have emerged as hotspots for transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Prior to the Defense Production Act, which compels meat plants to stay open in order to protect the functioning of the U.S. meat and poultry supply chain, being invoked in April 2020, many were forced to shut down. As threats of meat...

Data Show Cannabis Terpenes May Slow COVID-19 Infection

Posted by on Jun 8, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Data Show Cannabis Terpenes May Slow COVID-19 Infection

The body of scientific evidence demonstrating the medicinal value of cannabis continues to grow and become more compelling. Your body makes its own cannabinoids that interact with the receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and other organs, tissues and blood vessels. They are activated by the therapeutic and psychoactive properties of the plant.1 Cannabis can be bred to have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. THC has the psychoactive activity, while CBD has no...

CNN Spreads Deadly Lies About Vitamin D for COVID-19

Posted by on Jun 8, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on CNN Spreads Deadly Lies About Vitamin D for COVID-19

May 31, 2020, I posted an interview with three vitamin D experts in which we discuss the importance of vitamin D for preventing COVID-19 infection. A few days earlier, May 27, CNN published a report1 that could have deadly consequences if believed, claiming taking vitamin D supplements “can hurt a lot.” The article was written by Sandee LaMotte — a medical producer and writer for CNN and executive producer of video at pharma-biased WebMD. Three other CNN reporters, Emma Reynolds, Shelby Lin Erdman and Rob Picheta, also...
