Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Bill Gates Secretly Dictates Global Food Policy Too

His sheer wealth has allowed him to become a veritable superpower in his own right.

‘Gain-of-Function’ Experiments Lie at Root of the Pandemic

Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on ‘Gain-of-Function’ Experiments Lie at Root of the Pandemic

“Gain-of-function” studies are, according to the U.S. Department Health and Human Services,1 research that involves increasing the capacity of a pathogen to cause illness. The method is controversial because it can also risk new viruses leaking out of laboratories and into the population. In the period 2014 to 2018, this type of research was prohibited in the U.S., but in December 2017, American authorities announced that these kinds of studies would again be allowed.2,3 Despite an ongoing cover-up by government authorities, the...

Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on CDC Admits Hospital Incentives Drove Up COVID-19 Deaths

Four months ago, in early April 2020, Minnesota state senator and family physician Scott Jensen came out with a strong critique against the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance for how doctors were to certify COVID-19 fatalities on the death certificate.1 Jensen called the guidelines “ridiculous,” saying they could easily lead to unwarranted fear as it would make the disease appear deadlier than it actually is. According to the CDC guidelines: “In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID cannot...

Glutathione Deficiency May Be Associated With COVID Severity

Posted by on Aug 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Glutathione Deficiency May Be Associated With COVID Severity

Coronaviruses were identified in the mid-1960s and so named for the crown-like spikes on the surface of the cell. Until the first SARS-CoV arrived in 2003, there were four common coronaviruses.1 The CDC’s list of symptoms for these viruses shows that they are the same as those of the common cold.2 They include a runny nose, sore throat, headache, fever and cough. However, from what scientists have discovered since the start of the global pandemic, the symptoms and long-term effects are far different for SARS-CoV-2. Initial symptoms...

Why Aren’t We Promoting Health to Combat COVID?

Posted by on Aug 14, 2020 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Aren’t We Promoting Health to Combat COVID?

It’s an unfortunate fact that health officials and pandemic response authorities, by and large, are completely ignoring the role a healthy lifestyle plays in the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing instead, almost exclusively, on the necessity for a vaccine.
