Quercetin Boosts Interferon Response to Viruses and COVID-19

Posted by on Jun 1, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Quercetin Boosts Interferon Response to Viruses and COVID-19

As the number of people who have died from COVID-19 rises, more widespread testing reveals the infection may have moved farther and faster than was anticipated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released five planning scenarios1 “designed to help inform decisions by modelers and public health officials who utilize mathematical modeling.” Each of the scenarios is based on numerical values and epidemiological characteristics of the viral infection, reflective of data gathered before April 29, 2020. The CDC is...

Your Vitamin D Level Must Reach 60ng/mL Before the Second Wave

Posted by on Jun 1, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Your Vitamin D Level Must Reach 60ng/mL Before the Second Wave

As reviewed in “Vitamin D Level Is Directly Correlated to COVID-19 Outcomes,” there’s compelling evidence to suggest optimizing your vitamin D level can reduce your risk of COVID-19 and other viral infections such as seasonal influenza. A number of different scientists are calling for people and governments to prepare for a second wave of COVID-19 come fall, both in the U.S. and abroad.1 Considering SARS-CoV-2 has been shown to be responsive to temperature and humidity, with infectiousness increasing with lower temperatures...

Why Was Wuhan Lab Locked Down When Outbreak Began?

Posted by on May 30, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Was Wuhan Lab Locked Down When Outbreak Began?

GAs reported in “Bioweapon Labs Must Be Shut Down and Scientists Prosecuted,” there’s mounting evidence suggesting SARS-CoV-2 may have been leaked (whether inadvertently or not) from the biosafety level (BSL) 4 laboratory in Wuhan, China.1,2 I’ve also interviewed bioweapons expert Francis Boyle and molecular biologist Judy Mikovits, both of whom have cited evidence that strongly points toward SARS-CoV-2 being an escaped laboratory creation. Why Was Wuhan Lab Shut Down? Fueling suspicions that SARS-CoV-2 escaped from...

COVID-19 Critical Care

Posted by on May 29, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on COVID-19 Critical Care

“Why is success in critical care being ignored?” the Alliance for Natural Health rightly asks.1 The organization claims “much more could be done to save lives” if critical care protocols were to take into account what critical care doctors are finding in practice. A May 14, 2020, article reads, in part:2 “After around 8 weeks in lockdown and 3 months since the spectre of Covid-19 loomed large in our media headlines, why is it that a team of frontline critical (intensive) care doctors in the USA who have delivered...

Pandemic and Epidemic Collide in COVID-19

Posted by on May 28, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Pandemic and Epidemic Collide in COVID-19

As the world’s attention remains focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, essential attention is turned away from other life-threatening epidemics, including opioid addiction. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, opioid misuse and addiction had become rampant in the U.S. In the late 1990s, drug companies assured doctors that opioid pain relievers were safe and nonaddictive, leading to an increase in prescribing rates. Opioid overdose rates increased rapidly as it became clear that opioids can be highly addictive. In 2018, 46,802 Americans died from...

Are Stay-at-Home Orders Decimating Vitamin D Levels?

Posted by on May 28, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Are Stay-at-Home Orders Decimating Vitamin D Levels?

Recent scientific papers have highlighted the role vitamin D may be playing in the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in severe cases. Considering researchers have also shown that SARS-CoV-2 is rapidly inactivated by sunlight,1 areas that are banning people from parks and beaches, are undoubtedly committing a grave error.In fact, it has been nearly impossible to document outdoor transmission of the disease.  This is because one factor for catching disease is dependent on the viral load – the amount of exposure which is quickly diluted...

Global Health Mafia Protection

Posted by on May 27, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Global Health Mafia Protection

Amid the questions about COVID-19’s origin and lab research are questions about the self-appointed global health groups addressing the pandemic. According to a recent video blog by a Canadian citizen journalist who goes by the name “Amazing Polly,” global health groups operate as a Mafia, shamelessly using extortion and protection to achieve their goals.1 According to Polly, even though global health groups have nongovernmental organization “NGO names,” they are actually Mafia-like families answering to a...

COVID Symptoms of Power: Tech Billionaires Harvest Humanity

Posted by on May 27, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on COVID Symptoms of Power: Tech Billionaires Harvest Humanity

Bill Gates has built a global empire around his technologies and “philanthropic” endeavors. His sheer wealth has allowed him to become a veritable superpower in his own right, rising to become the unelected global health tsar on COVID-19. Indeed, the World Health Organization and the White House pandemic response team even kowtows to his nonexistent medical expertise. Life cannot and will not go back to normal until we can vaccinate the entire global population, Gates says, and that same sentiment is being echoed from government...

Will the World Become a Police State?

Posted by on May 27, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Will the World Become a Police State?

COVID-19 has sparked fear and panic across the world. Every day, the news is reporting the number of individuals who have likely died from the infection. True to the need to report negative news, they are talking about the thousands who have died, but not the hundreds of thousands who have survived the infection. The virus is virulent and indeed killing people. But there are far, far more who survive it with minor to moderate symptoms and don’t require hospitalization or supportive care. In an effort to “flatten the curve,”...

NewsGuard, which bills itself at “the internet trust tool,” is among the latest technology tools claiming to rate information as reliable or fake news, supplying you with a color-coded rating system next to Google and Bing searches, as well as on articles displayed on social media. If you rely on NewsGuard’s ratings, you may decide to entirely skip by those with a low “red” rating in favor of the “more trustworthy” green-rated articles — and therein lies the problem. NewsGuard is in itself...

Counties With Meat Plants Have Double Amount of COVID Cases

Posted by on May 26, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Counties With Meat Plants Have Double Amount of COVID Cases

Meatpacking plants have joined nursing homes and prisons as hot spots of COVID-19 cases, and the infections are affecting the surrounding communities as well. It’s one more way that the industrial model of food production that’s permeated the U.S. is failing and, rather than supplying healthy food for the public, is causing environmental destruction and disease. In an April 2020 report, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that COVID-19 cases among U.S. workers in 115 meat and poultry processing facilities...

COVID-19: A Leaked Virus Jointly Created by US and China?

Posted by on May 26, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on COVID-19: A Leaked Virus Jointly Created by US and China?

We are repeatedly told that COVID-19 originated from a wild animal at the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, China, and that it is a natural mutation of a bat virus. But the hard evidence contradicts this theory. Did COVID-19 Start in the Huanan Seafood Market? There is evidence that the first confirmed COVID-19 hospital patient had no contact with the Huanan Seafood Market, and only a few of the next few patients had contact with the market, which would rule out the possibility that the market was the original source of the virus. The graph...
