Posted by on Oct 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Majority Are Already Immune Against SARS-CoV-2

The more data becomes available about SARS-CoV-2, the more obvious it becomes that the response to this pandemic has been grossly overblown. Fatality statistics1,2,3,4,5,6,7 from multiple sources, calculated in a variety of ways, show the risk of dying from COVID-19 is lower than your risk of dying from conventional influenza, at least if you’re under the age of 60. Overall, the data8,9 also show that the overall all-cause mortality has remained steady this year and doesn’t veer from the norm. In other words, COVID-19 has not...

The Pharma Façade: More Hidden Money Going to Nonprofits

Posted by on Oct 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on The Pharma Façade: More Hidden Money Going to Nonprofits

In the U.K., patient organizations are nonprofits made up of patients and caregivers that offer support and advocacy for those afflicted by certain health conditions. Although they’re widely perceived as patient-oriented groups that serve the public, they often receive funding from pharmaceutical companies — a significant problem since such organizations are also increasingly involved in policy decisions and research.1 In fact, according to researchers from the University of Bath in the U.K. and Lund University in Sweden, patient...

Posted by on Oct 13, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on Lancet: Measles Shot Loses Immunity Year Over Year

In the year before COVID-19, aside from mandates for children, fear mongering was the communication of choice to push people into vaccinating against measles, mumps and rubella and all types of other diseases and conditions. Media outlets were publishing angry editorials, spewing hate against parents who chose not to vaccinate their children and blaming them for others getting measles.1 Some state and federal legislators were piggybacking on this rhetoric, proposing severe restrictions on the medical vaccine exemption and eliminating...

Posted by on Oct 12, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on What Are the Benefits of Bilberry?

Berries are often hailed as some of the best fruits you can eat. That’s because they’re loaded with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that have a wide range of health benefits.

Have You Ever Heard of This Healthy Alternative to Flour?

Posted by on Oct 10, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Have You Ever Heard of This Healthy Alternative to Flour?

Have you ever heard of breadfruit? It’s a rather strange name for a piece of fruit that sounds like it may smell or taste like bread. Instead, breadfruit is grown in tropical regions of the world and, like jackfruit, is a member of the mulberry family.1 Breadfruit trees were originally found in Polynesia. People use the fruit to bake, broil or fry the produce, similar to the way that potatoes are used. Others dry the flesh and grind it into flour to make bread and crusts. Polynesians brought the trees to Hawaii, when anthropologists...

Mammography: The War on Women’s Breasts

Posted by on Oct 10, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Mammography: The War on Women’s Breasts

When asked how much radiation women are exposed to from mammograms, Dr. Ben Johnson, author of “No Ma’am-ograms,” says, “At least the amount of 100 chest X-rays.” It’s a statement that would surprise many women who are advised to receive a mammogram as the standard of care for breast cancer prevention in the U.S. — and it’s just one of the eye-opening facts presented in the documentary “Boobs: The War on Women’s Breasts.” The film begins with a written statement informing viewers that all of the information you’re about to hear is supported...

Posted by on Oct 9, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on Multivitamins Shortened Duration and Severity of Illness

In 2018, sales in the U.S. supplement market had reached $124.8 billion and are expected to top $210.3 billion by 2026.1 While that sounds like a lot of money, and it is, it pales in comparison to health care spending for prescription drugs. In 2016, the cost of health care reached $3.3 trillion, of which $329 billion was on prescription drugs.2 The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) estimates that in the next decade, the money that’s spent on prescription drugs will outpace that of other types of health care spending.3 The...

According to rotavirus vaccine developer Dr. Paul Offit,1 people will need to continue wearing masks and social distancing for “the next couple of years” even after a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available. “People now see vaccines as a magic dust that’s about to be sprinkled over this country and make this all go away.

Posted by on Oct 7, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on A Half-Million Sharks To Be Killed for COVID-19 Vaccine

According to conservationists and wildlife experts, the plan to vaccinate the global population against COVID-19 will have a devastating environmental impact, as one of the vaccine ingredients, squalene, is made from shark liver oil. To satisfy a global supply of squalene-containing vaccines, an estimated half-million sharks would have to be slaughtered. At present, five COVID-19 vaccine candidates are using squalene as an adjuvant to boost the immune response to the vaccine and elicit higher antibody titers.1,2,3 Added to the more than 3...
