New World Order Is Advancing Rapidly

Posted by on Jun 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on New World Order Is Advancing Rapidly

As the world emerges from lockdown due to the pandemic, many peculiarities exist that have led a growing number of people to question whether the pandemic is real or orchestrated in some way, and if the latter is true, toward what end? Many are not aware that before the pandemic even started, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sponsored a novel coronavirus pandemic preparedness exercise. The event, which took place October 18, 2019, in New York City, was called...

SARS-CoV-2 Origin — Deadliest Cover-Up in Human History

Posted by on Jun 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on SARS-CoV-2 Origin — Deadliest Cover-Up in Human History

Chinese authorities have finally admitted SARS-CoV-2 did not originate in a Wuhan wet market,1 but that’s about as far as we’ve gotten to getting an official answer to the question about where the virus came from. Many valid questions are being raised, and have continued to be raised about the possibility that it is in fact manmade. Evidence indicating it is an engineered virus include the Antiviral Research paper2 “The Spike Glycoprotein of the New Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Contains a Furin-Like Cleavage Site Absent in CoV of...

The Sun Killed COVID

Posted by on Jun 16, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on The Sun Killed COVID

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s provisional death counts for COVID-19 show a striking change. While starting at zero in February 2020 and spiking up to more than 5,000 deaths per week for the oldest age range (85 and over) and 111 among 25- to 34-year-olds in late April, they’ve plummeted. There were 199 COVID-19 deaths for the week ending May 30, 2020, among those 85 and over, while only one death was reported among 25- to 34-year-olds — an extremely rapid decline from April to May.1 What happened to...

What You Need to Know About Vitamin C Dosage

Posted by on Jun 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on What You Need to Know About Vitamin C Dosage

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid (AA), is not synthesized by humans.1 It has many proven benefits from boosting the immune system, lessening cognitive decline, improving cardiovascular function and reducing oxidative stress to mineralizing bones, reducing the incidence of cataracts and acting as a pro-oxidant that may be toxic to cancer cells, according to research published in 2010.2 Yet, identifying the optimal dosage of vitamin C to achieve its many benefits has been a slow process. It has been hampered by lack of valid data, faulty...

Full-Fat Dairy Can Help Lower Blood Pressure

Posted by on Jun 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Full-Fat Dairy Can Help Lower Blood Pressure

In the past, I’ve written extensively about the differences between dairy from cows raised in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and those that are grass fed and raised in a more natural manner. Many of the health and environmental benefits associated with raising and consuming grass fed milk and dairy products originate in the cows’ diets. Grasses are a cow’s natural food, while corn and other grains that are routinely fed to CAFO livestock, are not. When cows eat grains, it alters the composition of their meat...

Magnesium and K2 Optimize Your Vitamin D Supplementation

Posted by on Jun 15, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Magnesium and K2 Optimize Your Vitamin D Supplementation

Optimizing your vitamin D level is ideally done through sensible sun exposure. However, many simply are unable to obtain sufficient levels from the sun alone and need supplemental vitamin D. In this case, nutritional synergies become an important factor. According to research by GrassrootsHealth,1 “combined intake of both supplemental magnesium and vitamin K2 has a greater effect on vitamin D levels than either individually,” and “those taking both supplemental magnesium and vitamin K2 have a higher vitamin D level for any...

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...

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.

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...
