Interferon Finally Investigated for COVID Treatment

Posted by on Sep 24, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Interferon Finally Investigated for COVID Treatment

From the beginning, researchers and scientists have been scrambling to find answers to a multitude of questions that affect patients with SARS-CoV-2. Scientists want to know how the virus infects human cells, how it is spread and what might be done to effectively treat a population that does not respond consistently. In other words, there are some people who are either asymptomatic or have a mild illness and others who develop significant disease and die from the virus. Experts are asking what causes one person’s immune system to go out of...

Winter Is Coming — How to Stop a Second Wave of COVID-19

Posted by on Sep 24, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Winter Is Coming — How to Stop a Second Wave of COVID-19

Over the past few months, several investigations have highlighted the apparent influence of vitamin D in COVID-19 incidence, severity and mortality. Interestingly, recent genetic analysis has produced a novel hypothesis1 that helps explain the unusual disease progression of COVID-19. The hypothesis,2 published in the journal eLife in July 2020, specifically identifies bradykinin, a blood pressure regulating chemical controlled by your renin-angiotensin system (RAS), as a primary culprit. As reviewed in greater depth in “Bradykinin...

Vaccination: What’s Trust Got to Do With It?

Posted by on Sep 22, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Vaccination: What’s Trust Got to Do With It?

As the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) prepares to host the three-day, three-night Fifth International Public Conference on Vaccination that will be broadcast online October 16 through 18, 2020, the theme we have chosen is “Protecting Health and Autonomy in the 21st Century,” because at no time in modern history has it been more important for all of us to take a stand and do just that. This year, the orchestrated actions by governments around the world to restrict or eliminate civil liberties in response to the emergence of a new...

Warp Speed Vaccine Will Be Shielded From Liability

Posted by on Sep 22, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Warp Speed Vaccine Will Be Shielded From Liability

The Health and Human Services’ Operation Warp Speed pledges to deliver 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 2021.1 However, developing a safe and effective vaccine normally takes years and begins with animal studies. Given the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine makers are rushing into human clinical tests and circumventing lengthy animal trials. Such fast-tracked vaccines pose unknown risks to humans, which are magnified because governments are granting COVID-19 vaccine makers immunity from liability for all vaccine...

Zinc Is Key to HCQ Protocol

Posted by on Sep 22, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Zinc Is Key to HCQ Protocol

Although more people talk about zinc during cold and flu season, and it’s one of the important supplements you can use to thwart a COVID-19 infection, it’s also an essential mineral found throughout your body. Zinc is the second-most abundant trace mineral found in the body, while iron is the first.1 Zinc is a cofactor in 3,000 proteins.2 Although it’s crucial to many biological processes and plays a vital role in the structure of nearly every cell, the body does not store the mineral.3 Instead, you must consume it every day to meet...

Why Are Moderna Executives Dumping Their Stock?

Posted by on Sep 22, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Are Moderna Executives Dumping Their Stock?

The U.S. Health and Human Services’ Operation Warp Speed has pledged to deliver 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by 2021,1 if not sooner.2 However, developing a safe and effective vaccine normally takes years and begins with animal studies. The COVID-19 vaccines are all being rushed straight into human clinical tests, forgoing lengthy animal trials altogether. Such fast-tracked vaccines pose unknown risks, which are further magnified since governments are granting COVID-19 vaccine makers immunity from liability for all vaccine...

Decade-Long Feeding Study Reveals Significant Health Hazards of Genetically Engineered Foods

Posted by on Sep 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Decade-Long Feeding Study Reveals Significant Health Hazards of Genetically Engineered Foods

By Dr. Mercola Scientists in Norway have released results from experimental feeding studies carried out over a 10-year period, and the verdict is in: If you want to avoid obesity, then avoid eating genetically engineered (GE) corn, corn-based products, and animals that are fed a diet of GE grain. As reported by Cornucopia.org1, the project also looked at the effects on organ changes, and researchers found significant changes that affected weight gain, eating behaviors, and immune function. How Genetically Engineered Corn and Soy Can Wreak...

Is There a Dead Wasp in Every Fig?

Posted by on Sep 20, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Is There a Dead Wasp in Every Fig?

If you’re a fig lover, this next sentence may be hard for you to swallow. The figs you’re eating could have a dead wasp stuck in them. I know that probably makes you squirm, but it sounds more dramatic than it is. You may think the idea of wasps inside a fig is gross, but it’s actually pretty amazing to see how nature knows exactly what it needs to do to allow both plant and insect species to survive. Figs and fig wasps have a mutually beneficial relationship — something that’s officially called mutualism1 — that developed over millions of...

How the Government Uses Fear to Control

Posted by on Sep 20, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on How the Government Uses Fear to Control

August 28, 2020, the Children’s Health Defense, led by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., launched a European branch of the organization. In a press conference1 announcing the new branch, Kennedy discussed how governments are using fear to control and manipulate the population. Acting as quasi-government agencies, public health organizations such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization are pushing vaccines using the same fear tactics, while simultaneously removing the regulatory oversight that used...

Beets for Better Lung Efficiency

Posted by on Sep 20, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Beets for Better Lung Efficiency

If you have breathing troubles, nitrates — a compound found in beets — may be able to help. Previous studies have shown that nitrates can help improve muscle function by optimizing the way the muscles use calcium. Since the diaphragm is a muscle, researchers from the University of Florida wanted to see if those benefits could be translated to the diaphragm. For the study,1 researchers split old mice into two groups. One group was given drinking water that contained sodium nitrate daily for 14 days. The other group was given plain water. After...

Could a Hearing Aid Protect Your Brain Health?

Posted by on Sep 17, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Could a Hearing Aid Protect Your Brain Health?

Hearing loss is frustrating. It can lead to social isolation, depression and dementia. Regrettably, it is a growing health concern. The World Health Organization1 reports there are 466 million who have a disabling hearing loss, and they estimate this will increase to more than 900 million by 2050. There are 37.5 million Americans over age 18 who have trouble hearing.2 But the phrase “trouble hearing” may refer to anything from slight hearing loss to a disabling condition. Statistics tell us that the rate of disabling loss...
