'For $1/day'... Double-blind ivermectin study reveals COVID patients recover more quickly, are less infectious

A double-blind Israeli study has concluded that Ivermectin, an inexpensive anti-parasitic widely used since 1981, reduces both the duration and infectiousness of Covid-19, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The study, conducted by Prof. Eli Schwartz, founder of the Center for Travel Medicine and Tropical Disease at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, looked at some 89 eligible volunteers over the age of 18 who had tested positive for coronavirus, and were living in state-run Covid-19 hotels. After being divided into two groups, 50% received ivermectin, and 50% received a placebo. Each patient was given the drug for three days in a row, an hour before eating.

83% of participants were symptomatic at recruitment. 13.5% of patients had comorbidities of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, hypertension or cancer. The median age of the patients was 35, ranging from 20 to 71-years-old.


Treatment was discontinued on the third day, and patients were monitored every two days thereafter. By day six, 72% of those treated with ivermectin tested negative for the virus, vs. 50% of those who received the placebo. Meanwhile, just 13% of ivermectin patients were able to infect others after six days compared to 50% of the placebo group - nearly four times as many.


Three patients in the placebo group were admitted to hospitals for respiratory symptoms, while one ivermectin patient was hospitalized for shortness of breath the day the study began - only to be discharged a day later and "sent back to the hotel in good condition," according to the study.

"Our study shows first and foremost that ivermectin has antiviral activity," said Schwartz, adding "It also shows that there is almost a 100% chance that a person will be noninfectious in four to six days, which could lead to shortening isolation time for these people. This could have a huge economic and social impact."

The study, which appeared on the MedRxiv preprint server and has not yet been peer-reviewed. That said, Schwartz pointed out that similar studies - 'though not all of them conducted to the same double-blind and placebo standards as his' - also showed favorable results for the drug.

British study shows children UNLIKELY to contract severe Covid but UK wants to vaccinate them anyway

Year six pupils arrive at St John's Primary School in Fulham, West London, Britain, June 2, 2020.
A new study has found that prolonged illness from Covid among minors is uncommon, reaffirming data showing that the virus is rarely deadly for children. The findings come as the UK prepares to start giving teens the shot.

The research, conducted by King's College London scientists, revealed that children aged between 5 and 17 who test positive for coronavirus typically recover in less than a week.

Headaches and tiredness were the most common symptoms observed, according to their paper, which was published on Tuesday in the Lancet.

Using data provided by parents to a non-profit group that supports Covid research, the study examined medical information collected from 1,734 minors who developed symptoms and tested positive for the virus between September 2020 and February 2021.

Comment: It was only last month that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) stated: "The health benefits in this population are small, and the benefits to the wider population are highly uncertain. At this time, JCVI is of the view that the health benefits of universal vaccination in children and young people below the age of 18 years do not outweigh the potential risks".

Just two weeks later they have made a complete U-turn and advised that healthy 16 to 17-year-olds should be offered the first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, just in time for No. 10's scientists to reveal that children as young as 12 would be offered jabs later this year. Most concerning is that children may not need parental consent to get the jab.


Dr. Mercola to delete ALL CONTENT from website. Future articles available for 48 hours only

Today, I have the most important announcement in the quarter of a century history of this newsletter. My goal and passion has always been about supporting you and helping you take control of your health. I am beyond thrilled that there are tens of millions of people who have benefited from what I have shared over the years.

I am filled with joy and gratitude every time I travel and lecture as invariably many people tell me how I've changed their lives by providing vital information they couldn't find anywhere else and even better that was completely free.

Comment: Mercola and his team have been the target of vicious attacks and defamation for several years. However, since the onset of the COVID "pandemic", they have become victims of a targeted disinformation campaign aimed at destroying their reputation, censoring their online presence and silencing them.

Omega-3 and heart disease

Omega 3
© Sebastian Rushworth.com

I have a confession to make. For at least the last ten years, I've taken an omega-3 supplement every day. Religiously. Why? I literally have no idea. I don't remember exactly when or why I started taking it. Presumably I read somewhere that it was a good idea. This was before I started studying medicine, and the decision certainly wasn't based on any thorough evaluation of the scientific evidence. So I figure it's probably about time I actually take a look at the evidence, before I decide whether to continue spending hundreds of dollars a year on omega-3 supplements.

The most commonly claimed benefit when it comes to omega-3 is that it prevents heart disease. This dates back to the 1970's, when it was noted that Inuit following a traditional diet rich in meat from whales and seals suffered from remarkably little cardiovascular disease. It was suggested that this might be due to the high levels of omega-3 fatty acids in meat from marine mammals. Of course, correlation is not causation, and I can think of several other major differences between the traditional inuit diet and the standard western diet that could explain the lack of heart disease, such as the complete absence of sugar.

Since then, there have been many randomized trials looking specifically at omega-3 for the prevention of heart disease. In 2018 the Cochrane collaboration carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis, with the goal of answering the question definitively. The review included both randomized controlled trials of omega-3 supplementation and of advice to eat more fatty fish. The requirements for inclusion in the systematic review were that the trials follow participants for at least one year, and provide data on mortality or outcomes related to heart disease.


Now official: Biden's vaccine mandate for ALL federal workers, or regular testing will be required

Biden vaccine
Biden's plan to require all federal employees and contractors to get the COVID vaccine or submit to regular testing, wear masks and socially distance is already getting pushback from those who question the constitutional legality and how mandates would be enforced.

As anticipated, President Biden on Thursday announced all civilian federal employees and contractors will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID, or submit to regular COVID testing, wear masks and socially distance.


'Superbug' Candida auris fungus spreads in two US cities

On Thursday, July 22, 2021, the CDC said they now have evidence of the untreatable fungus spreading in a Washington, D.C, nursing home and at two Dallas-area hospitals.
U.S. health officials said Thursday they now have evidence of an untreatable fungus spreading in two hospitals and a nursing home.

The "superbug" outbreaks were reported in a Washington, D.C, nursing home and at two Dallas-area hospitals, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. A handful of the patients had invasive fungal infections that were impervious to all three major classes of medications.

"This is really the first time we've started seeing clustering of resistance" in which patients seemed to be getting the infections from each other, said the CDC's Dr. Meghan Lyman.

Disturbing whilstleblower footage: Forced COVID vaccination in nursing homes, 'We're dealing with homicide, maybe even murder'

Covid vaccine
Health Impact News' Brian Shilhavy reports that a whistleblower working in a nursing home where several residents were injected with the experimental COVID mRNA shots against their will says many of them died a short time later. The report appeared in a video by German Attorney Reiner Fuellmich.

Since that report was published, other whistleblowers in Germany who work in nursing homes have also stepped forward, some with video footage showing residents being held down and vaccinated against their wishes.

Comment: Not only have nursing home residents being forcibly injected with experimental vaccines without their informed consent, they have also been perhaps the greatest victims of lockdown measures, which resulted in a lack of access to basic medical care, forced isolation, and an untold amount of uneccessary suffering and death:


Man-made virus? Patents provide evidence that SARS-CoV-2 was manufactured in lab

In a January 2021 lecture, Jonathan Latham, Ph.D., introduced the term "the pandemic virus industrial complex," to describe the academic, military and commercial complexes that are driving the pandemic agenda and obscuring facts that indicate SARS-CoV-2 is a manmade virus.


New evidence suggests COVID vaccine may SPREAD the virus: NBC news report deleted from USA today article

cdc covid usa today
"NBC News, citing unnamed officials aware of the decision, reported it comes after new data suggests vaccinated individuals could have higher levels of virus and infect others amid the surge of cases driven by the delta variant of the coronavirus," the USA Today reported in a passage that was later scrubbed from an article.

A screenshot from the article and an online archive of the passage points out the surfacing evidence.

Comment: So the vaccinated can infect others and a large proportion of those hospitalized due to COVID are double-vaxxed according to UK and Australian health spokespersons (even though their statements have now been "corrected"). Can anyone remind us what the point of the vaccine is because it certainly isn't doing anything it was purported to do!? See also:
