All things considered, vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest, least expensive and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections in the coming months.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Immune System

Posted by on Jun 22, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Immune System

The workings of the human immune system are fascinating and especially important during the coronavirus outbreak. While the immune system’s armamentarium of stem cells, helper T cells, cytotoxic T cells and other fighters is impressive, so is the armamentarium that a virus uses to invade cells and make them factories to replicate it. A vivid and entertaining video, “The Amazing Immunology of our Viral Issue — and Herd Immunity Revelations!” describes the ongoing war between your immune system and an invading virus,...

Cover-Up of SARS-CoV-2 Exposed

Posted by on Jun 21, 2020 in Dr. Becker | Comments Off on Cover-Up of SARS-CoV-2 Exposed

Jonathan Latham, Ph.D., is a molecular biologist and a virologist, which is a great skillset to help us understand the origins of SARS-CoV-2. Latham reviews some really intriguing evidence in this interview. He’s also the editor of Independent Science News. By and large, the mainstream media are still protecting the narrative that SARS-CoV-2 is a zoonotically transmitted virus originating in bats. Much of the evidence for this comes from Shi Zhengli, a researcher at the biosafety 4 laboratory in Wuhan, China. As the leading Chinese bat...

Nutrient deficiencies can take a heavy toll on your health, and this includes increasing your risk of severe outcomes in the case of viral infections like COVID-19. Vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin most known for its role in blood clotting and found in foods like spinach, eggs and certain cheeses, is among the latest to be called out for its potential protective role against COVID-19, which may cause blood clotting degradation of elastic fibers in your lungs. Both thromboembolism, which occurs when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel, and...

Why Bats Are Ecological Superheroes

Posted by on Jun 20, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Bats Are Ecological Superheroes

Bats are sometimes feared and greatly misunderstood. They’ve been particularly vilified in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as many are falsely pushing the narrative that bats, and the sale of bats and other animals in wet markets, are to blame for the outbreak. We now have proof that’s simply not true. For more information, be sure to check out tomorrow’s interview with virologist and molecular biologist Jonathan Latham, Ph.D. In that interview, he presents evidence showing SARS-CoV-2 is highly unlikely to have a natural...

Is There Really Strong Evidence for Wearing Masks?

Posted by on Jun 19, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Is There Really Strong Evidence for Wearing Masks?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been conflicting advice about wearing face masks or face coverings, even within the same public health agencies. For example, some medical organizations claim that wearing a mask only protects others from you if you are carrying the virus, but urge you to wear one if you are in close contact with a COVID-19 patient — which infers that a mask could protect you from an infected person. The advice raises several questions. First, many people can be carrying the virus and not know it because they are...

Should Aspirin Be Prescribed Daily for Heart Health?

Posted by on Jun 19, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Should Aspirin Be Prescribed Daily for Heart Health?

Heart disease can include several problems related to the heart and blood vessels, many of which are related to atherosclerosis. A buildup of plaque in the walls of the arteries makes it difficult for blood flow, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. In 2017, 859,125 deaths in the U.S. were attributed to cardiovascular disease.1 According to the American Heart Association, the disease kills more people every year than all forms of cancer and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined. Coronary heart disease is the main problem,...

How Fear of a Virus Changed Our World

Posted by on Jun 18, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on How Fear of a Virus Changed Our World

Fear is a primal biological response to a perceived threat to our survival. Fear triggers momentary paralysis and then a fight or flight reaction before the brain can rationally analyze and calibrate our response to a perceived threat.1 Right now, people around the world are living in fear of being infected or infecting someone else with a new coronavirus that can kill those most vulnerable without warning. Along with confusion and uncertainty, which prolong fear, many of us are traumatized by the authoritarian measures governments have taken...

The COVID-19 pandemic has morphed into something much greater than a viral illness alone. The fear, uncertainty, social isolation and financial devastation that have come along with it are now creating the perfect storm for mental health issues, and a pandemic-triggered mental health crisis is expected.

The noose of censorship continues to tighten. I recently reported how Twitter now falsely labels Mercola article links as unsafe and malicious, warning potential readers my site might steal passwords and other personal data, or install malware on your computer. It is absolutely false. On the contrary, my site now has a firewall preventing Google analytic scripts from running on our pages, thereby protecting you from Google’s intrusive data mining. Unfortunately, by declaring our pages dangerous, they successfully suppress about 95% of...

The New COVID-19 Medication Isn’t Backed by Results

Posted by on Jun 17, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on The New COVID-19 Medication Isn’t Backed by Results

Big Pharma companies have worked hard to portray themselves as benevolent corporations that pour billions of dollars into the creation of drugs and vaccines. Biotech giant Gilead Sciences is no different. They manufacture remdesivir, the newest drug being hyped to treat SARS-CoV-2, which is discussed above in The High Wire video by Del Bigtree from Informed Consent Action Network. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), Anthony Fauci, along with the media, has been making public statements that cannot...
