“It’s Time For The Scientific Community To Admit We Were Wrong About COVID & It Cost Lives”

Real “mea culpa”, ongoing and rapid revision of history, or further narrative management with regard ‘amnesty’ over what “the others” did to those who thought for themselves over the last few years…

In no less a liberal rag than Newsweek, Kevin Bass (MS MD/PHD Student, Medical School) has penned a quite surprising (and ‘brave’) op-ed saying that “it’s time for the scientific community to admit we were wrong about COVID and it cost lives…”

As a medical student and researcher, I staunchly supported the efforts of the public health authorities when it came to COVID-19.

I believed that the authorities responded to the largest public health crisis of our lives with compassion, diligence, and scientific expertise. I was with them when they called for lock-downs, vaccines, and boosters.

I was wrong. We in the scientific community were wrong. And it cost lives.

I can see now that the scientific community from the CDC to the WHO to the FDA and their representatives, repeatedly overstated the evidence and misled the public about its own views and policies, including on natural vs. artificial immunityschool closures and disease transmissionaerosol spreadmask mandates, and vaccine effectiveness and safety, especially among the young. All of these were scientific mistakes at the time, not in hindsight. Amazingly, some of these obfuscations continue to the present day.

But perhaps more important than any individual error was how inherently flawed the overall approach of the scientific community was, and continues to be. It was flawed in a way that undermined its efficacy and resulted in thousands if not millions of preventable deaths.

What we did not properly appreciate is that preferences determine how scientific expertise is used, and that our preferences might be—indeed, our preferences were—very different from many of the people that we serve. We created policy based on our preferences, then justified it using data. And then we portrayed those opposing our efforts as misguided, ignorant, selfish, and evil.

We made science a team sport, and in so doing, we made it no longer science. It became us versus them, and “they” responded the only way anyone might expect them to: by resisting.

We excluded important parts of the population from policy development and castigated critics, which meant that we deployed a monolithic response across an exceptionally diverse nation, forged a society more fractured than ever, and exacerbated longstanding heath and economic disparities.

Our emotional response and ingrained partisanship prevented us from seeing the full impact of our actions on the people we are supposed to serve. We systematically minimized the downsides of the interventions we imposed—imposed without the input, consent, and recognition of those forced to live with them. In so doing, we violated the autonomy of those who would be most negatively impacted by our policies: the poor, the working class, small business owners, Blacks and Latinos, and children. These populations were overlooked because they were made invisible to us by their systematic exclusion from the dominant, corporatized media machine that presumed omniscience.

Most of us did not speak up in support of alternative views, and many of us tried to suppress them. When strong scientific voices like world-renowned Stanford professors John Ioannidis, Jay Bhattacharya, and Scott Atlas, or University of California San Francisco professors Vinay Prasad and Monica Gandhi, sounded the alarm on behalf of vulnerable communities, they faced severe censure by relentless mobs of critics and detractors in the scientific community—often not on the basis of fact but solely on the basis of differences in scientific opinion.

When former President Trump pointed out the downsides of intervention, he was dismissed publicly as a buffoon. And when Dr. Antony Fauci opposed Trump and became the hero of the public health community, we gave him our support to do and say what he wanted, even when he was wrong.

Trump was not remotely perfect, nor were the academic critics of consensus policy. But the scorn that we laid on them was a disaster for public trust in the pandemic response. Our approach alienated large segments of the population from what should have been a national, collaborative project.

And we paid the price. The rage of the those marginalized by the expert class exploded onto and dominated social media. Lacking the scientific lexicon to express their disagreement, many dissidents turned to conspiracy theories and a cottage industry of scientific contortionists to make their case against the expert class consensus that dominated the pandemic mainstream. Labeling this speech “misinformation” and blaming it on “scientific illiteracy” and “ignorance,” the government conspired with Big Tech to aggressively suppress it, erasing the valid political concerns of the government’s opponents.

And this despite the fact that pandemic policy was created by a razor-thin sliver of American society who anointed themselves to preside over the working class—members of academia, government, medicine, journalism, tech, and public health, who are highly educated and privileged. From the comfort of their privilege, this elite prizes paternalism, as opposed to average Americans who laud self-reliance and whose daily lives routinely demand that they reckon with risk. That many of our leaders neglected to consider the lived experience of those across the class divide is unconscionable.

Incomprehensible to us due to this class divide, we severely judged lock-down critics as lazy, backwards, even evil. We were dismissed as “grifters” who represented their interests. We believed “misinformation” energized by the ignorant, and we refused to accept that such people simply had a different, valid point of view.

We crafted policy for the people without consulting them. If our public health officials had led with less hubris, the course of the pandemic in the United States might have had a very different outcome, with far fewer lost lives.

Instead, we have witnessed a massive and ongoing loss of life in America due to distrust of vaccines and the healthcare systema massive concentration in wealth by already wealthy elitesa rise in suicides and gun violence especially among the poor; a near-doubling of the rate of depression and anxiety disorders especially among the younga catastrophic loss of educational attainment among already disadvantaged children; and among those most vulnerable, a massive loss of trust in healthcarescience, scientific authorities, and political leaders more broadly.

My motivation for writing this is simple:

It’s clear to me that for public trust to be restored in science, scientists should publicly discuss what went right and what went wrong during the pandemic, and where we could have done better.

It’s OK to be wrong and admit where one was wrong and what one learned. That’s a central part of the way science works. Yet I fear that many are too entrenched in group-think—and too afraid to publicly take responsibility—to do this.

Solving these problems in the long term requires a greater commitment to pluralism and tolerance in our institutions, including the inclusion of critical if unpopular voices.

Intellectual elitism, credentialism, and classism must end. Restoring trust in public health—and our democracy—depends on it.

The problem was not people’s ignorance of the facts, it was the organized antagonism and censorship against anyone presenting data that was contradictory to the mandate agenda. This is setting aside proclamations like those from the LA Times, which argued that mocking the deaths of “anti-vaxxers” might be necessary and justified.  After two years of this type of arrogant nonsense it’s hard to imagine people will be willing to pretend as if all is well.

The active effort to shut down any opposing data is the root crime, though, and no, it can never be forgotten or forgiven.

People are still livid…

One cannot help but notice that the timing of the Atlantic’s appeal for passive forgetfulness and now this op-ed mea culpa coincides with the swiftly approaching end of the COVID emergency declarations, amid a growing political backlash to the last two years of meaningless lock-downs and mandates, and Democrats were instrumental in the implementation of both.  A large swath of the population sees one party as the cause of much of their COVID era strife.  

Perhaps the mainstream media is suddenly realizing that they may have to face some payback for their COVID zealotry?  “We didn’t know! We were just following orders!”  It all sounds rather familiar.

Australian Study: Bee Venom Kills Breast Cancer Cells

Bee venom is effective in killing aggressive breast cancer cells, an astonishing new study from an Aussie scientist has found.

Results revealed the venom – from honeybees sourced in Western Australia, England and Ireland – rapidly destroyed triple-negative breast cancer and HER2-enriched breast cancer cells.

The scientist behind the research, Dr Ciara Duffy, said a specific concentration of honeybee venom could kill 100 per cent of cancer cells.Aussie Scientist Ciara Duffy Has Made An Extraordinary Discovery Honeybee Venom Can Kill Aggressive Breast Cancer Cells

Aussie scientist Ciara Duffy has made an extraordinary discovery: Honeybee venom can kill aggressive breast cancer cells

She said the treatment had minimal effects on normal cells.

“The venom was extremely potent,” she said.

Dr Duffy, from the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and The University of Western Australia, used the venom from 312 bees to test the effect on the clinical subtypes of breast cancer, including types with limited treatment options.

The key ingredient was the compound melittin, naturally occurring in the venom, which Dr Duffy said can be reproduced synthetically.

“We found that melittin can completely destroy cancer cell membranes within 60 minutes,“ she said.

“No-one had previously compared the effects of honeybee venom or melittin across all of the different subtypes of breast cancer and normal cells.”

She said melittin in honeybee venom also had another remarkable effect: within 20 minutes, melittin was able to substantially reduce the chemical messages of cancer cells that are essential to cancer cell growth and cell division.

“We looked at how honeybee venom and melittin affect the cancer signalling pathways, the chemical messages that are fundamental for cancer cell growth and reproduction, and we found that very quickly these signalling pathways were shut down,” she said.

Western Australia’s chief scientist, Professor Peter Klinken, said it was an “incredibly exciting observation”.

“It provides another wonderful example of where compounds in nature can be used to treat human diseases,” he said.

Dr Duffy’s research was conducted as part of her PhD.

“I began with collecting Perth honeybee venom,” she said.

“Perth bees are some of the healthiest in the world.

“The bees were put to sleep with carbon dioxide and kept on ice before the venom barb was pulled out from the abdomen of the bee and the venom extracted by careful dissection.”

The Secret Power Of Russian Pyramids

Even though the Egyptian pyramids tend to get all the attention, many other sets of pyramids around the world have qualities that merit their own spotlight.

But perhaps not for the reasons, you might think.

Some believe that beyond the architectural significance and might of pyramid structures, are energy forces that can account for seemingly inexplicable phenomenons and effects in the natural world.

The Secret Power of Russian Pyramids

It is this mysterious energy that has caused pyramid experts and laymen alike to become intrigued by the great structures, and build sets of their own in hopes of discovering more about the possibilities of pyramids.

Pyramids And Healing Powers

For believers in pyramid power, pyramids are a source of profound biological and, in some cases, spiritual effects –– much like the ancient Egyptians, who held similar ideas about the healing powers of pyramids.

While the purported benefits of pyramid power have not been proven through traditional scientific methods, some believe that pyramids can have many positive effects, from improving sleep and libido/sex drive to enhanced meditation, and quicker healing times.

Others have examined the interplay between pyramids and energy, and have questioned how the construction of pyramids might impact other elements of the human experience, such as consciousness, matter, and gravity.

Such pyramid researchers and enthusiasts posit that the shape of pyramids can have effects on the structure of the atoms within objects inside pyramids, and therefore a profound impact on the human experience.

Russian Pyramid Research

One such pyramid researcher is Alexander Golod, who has been examining pyramids since 1990 in Russia.

He claims that pyramids have the power to eliminate viruses, treat cancer, and increase the electrical resistance of pyrolytic carbon. He has led many studies on the effects of pyramids in different environments and situations.

In some studies, he has found that pyramids have had agricultural effects, such as purportedly increasing the yield by 30 to 100 percent, among other results he noted.

Other results from more of his tests using military radar units indicate massive amounts of ionizing radiation coming from the tip of the pyramids.

More on the Russian pyramid research here.

Visitors To The Russian Pyramids

Golod’s belief and research into pyramid power led to the installation of 17 fiberglass pyramids throughout Russia, which have drawn attention and visits from tourists and other interested parties.

The pyramids can be found in various cities in Russia, as well as Uzbekistan and France, with the most notable found about an hour outside of Moscow and standing at about 150 feet tall.

Visitors have come away with mixed reviews of the veracity of the claims made about the pyramids’ effects, with some reporting increased healing, and others not noticing any effects at all.

Pyramid Research And Technologies

Organizations such as the International Partnership for Pyramid Research and the Pyramid of Life have continued to work towards the advancement, research, and dissemination of pyramids in the world.

The International Partnership for Pyramid Research purports that research into pyramid power has been conducted by the Russian National Academy of Sciences, including the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Graphite Scientific Research Institute, and the Institute of Physics in Ukraine.

The Pyramid of Life, a Canadian organization, has taken it one step further, by taking that research and “develop[ing] and market[ing] products harmonizing space, products that bring vital energy, helping people adapt in various environmental conditions.”

For example, they carry products such as mini-pyramids and crystal pyramids. Each of these products purports various benefits for the user, including harmonizing space, neutralizing electromagnetic radiation, reducing stress, and slowing the process of aging.

Individual Research

Interest and investigation into Russian pyramid power and technology are ongoing and has extended beyond more formalized research to the everyday person, with some individuals even focusing on teaching others how to construct their very own pyramids at home.

Several guides exist, with step-by-step walkthroughs of building pyramids with one’s own materials.

These do-it-yourself instructions assist those who are interested in delving deeper into the effects of pyramids.

Such at-home experiments can be fairly complicated or simple, depending on what you would like to investigate.

These self-built pyramids can consist of basic materials such as wood, copper, and wire, and can be used to test the pyramid’s effects on surrounding plants and fluids.

Depending on your level of interest and intrigue into the world of pyramids, you might find it interesting to explore more of Golod’s research and the potential impact of pyramids in the modern-day world.

Are they, in fact, more than they appear? It could be worth a second look.

Natural Cures For COVID Being Censored As BILLIONS Of Dollars Are Spent On Vaccines And Drugs

by Dr. Alan Palmer

In the media coverage surrounding COVID-19, why are we hearing nothing about what each individual can do FOR THEMSELVES nutritionally in an effort to build their immune competency to resist and overcome infection? Why is the narrative all about how the pharmaceutical industry is going to “SAVE” us?

Professor Presenting Handdrawn Chemical Formula Of Glutathione Antioxidant Peptide

Could it have something to do with the fact that the pharma-controlled media wants to convince us that we must spend billions of dollars and wait for big pharma to come to the rescue with new, expensive, proprietary and patented anti-viral drugs and a magical vaccine to rescue us from COVID-19 therefore “allowing” us to return to normal life?

I’m not even saying that it’s only nutritional options and natural alternatives that are being shunned.

Even inexpensive, easy to access drugs like Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin with zinc are being played down, despite studies from around the world showing it’s efficacy.

And, with a history of use for over 60 years in millions of people, it has proven to have an excellent safety record as compared to many other pharmaceutical drugs.

A course of treatment is under $30 compared to Remdesivir, which costs more than $3,000. You can be sure that the antiviral drugs being developed for COVID-19 will probably exceed that cost.

Let’s be honest; inexpensive, safe drugs or natural alternatives like herbal or nutritional compounds won’t provide pharma with the big payday they are banking on from COVID-19. They are opportunists, and you can bet they are going to make the most out of this opportunity.

No investment and all profit served up in a liability free environment! Can you think of a better business model … ?

Opportunistic organisms in biology are those parasites, bacteria, fungi, yeasts and viruses that take advantage of a weak host that offers them a ripe terrain for infection.

These pharma opportunists are getting our government to fund the development and production of these drugs and vaccines to the tune of billions of dollars…

AND they will potentially reap hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue from the sales (all underwritten by each of us taxpayers).

No investment and all profit served up in a liability free environment! Can you think of a better business model and financial windfall scenario for them?

In the meantime, as the powers that be, drag their feet on making these inexpensive treatments available to sick patients because they have something better on the horizon, thousands of people are dying. Many unnecessarily.

And, since scientists have already said that the virus can and will mutate, the magical vaccine that we have all paid for and millions are relying on, will most likely be largely ineffective in a best-case scenario and outright deadly in a worst-case scenario.

Another legitimate concern would be the vaccine’s role in the development of future long-term chronic disease.

A similar situation plays out every year with the flu vaccine and its miserable rate of effectiveness, because guessing which strains will be prevalent the next season to incorporate into the vaccine is a roll of the dice.

Three decades of attempts to make a coronavirus vaccine have been a miserable failure, resulting in what is called “pathogenic priming” or sometimes referred to as “immune enhancement”, which is a paradoxical response.

This is where a vaccinated person, after later being exposed to the same virus has the risk of acquiring an extremely exaggerated immune reaction. This is something many top scientists and doctors in the vaccine field are warning against.

It is not a great scenario when they are bragging about how fast they can get these vaccines to market and taking shortcuts in the safety studies like animal safety studies, followed by long-term human trials to make it happen. Quick to market with a shell-shocked public waiting anxiously for your product. Jackpot!

… oxidative radicals wreak havoc on the body if glutathione is in short supply.

The Scientific Basis For Nutritional Effectiveness

There are thousands of studies published that demonstrate effectiveness of various natural compounds in preventing and treating viral infections.

They do that in numerous ways, but the two overarching strategies is first to prime or boost the body’s own ability to attack and destroy the pathological microbes and second, to block key biochemical pathways that the virus needs to enter the cell and proliferate.

In COVID-19’s case, these pathways into the cell are called the ACE-2 receptors. The cells lining the lungs and airways are particularly rich in these receptors making the lungs a receptive target for COVID-19.

Nutritional compounds can also effectively manage the high levels of inflammation and collateral damage caused by the infection, which is one of the main reasons the COVID-19 infection can reach catastrophic levels and, in some cases becomes fatal.

Many reports have discussed a phenomenon that can occur called a “cytokine storm”, which is an example of an out of control inflammatory immune reaction throughout the body.

The oxidative stress from this reaction causes massive collateral tissue damage.

Incidentally, the cytokine storm phenomenon is not new or unique to COVID-19. The literature is replete with studies discussing it in relationship to severe influenza as well.

One example of a nutritional superhero is glutathione. Glutathione the body’s “Master Antioxidant”, is essential for successfully fighting infection and mitigating the damaging effects of the production of oxidative free radicals that are released during infection.

These oxidative radicals wreak havoc on the body if glutathione is in short supply. These oxidative free-radicals are now implicated in the cause of the cytokine storm that often results in the loss of life from COVID-19.

Fortunately, there are ways that you can boost your own glutathione levels. Therefore, reducing inflammation and oxidative stress naturally not only decreases the severity of the infection and risk of death, but also the long-term health altering after-effects post infection.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine or N.A.C., is another important and related compound. Studies have also shown that taking N.A.C. will not only help boost glutathione levels but may also help to prevent the formation of what is called von Willebrand Factor, an agent that is responsible for the blood clotting problems that frequently develops in COVID-19 patients.

The incredible partnership between the miraculous human immune system and nature

The biochemistry of how the intelligence of the body operates is truly remarkable. And the immune system is a symphony of players that when all working properly and in concert, make beautiful music together.

Beautiful unless you are a pathogen. When working in harmony, the different players in the immune system are truly a formidable force to be reckoned with. They seek, identify and destroy the intruder.

Rather than using a drug that often has risks of side effects to “kill” the infection, this approach fortifies and builds the body’s own defenses and mechanisms to fight the offending microbe and then clean up the mess and debris afterwards.

This includes upregulating white blood cells and immune regulatory players like macrophages, natural killer cells (NK cells), neutrophils and monocytes.

As an example, vitamin C greatly increases numbers, activity and effectiveness of macrophages, NK cells, neutrophils and monocytes. Human beings can’t make our own, so we have to get it from diet and supplementation.

Vitamin C demands increase substantially during times of stress, injury and infection. Therefore, it is essential to meet those demands with increased consumption when you want your immune system to work at its best.A Macrophage Grabbing And Engulfing A Pathogen

A macrophage grabbing and engulfing a pathogen

Another example of key players during infection are cytokines. Cytokines are proteins that act as cell signaling agents. Some cytokines are pro-inflammatory, and some are anti-inflammatory in action.

Some pro-inflammatory response is necessary and appropriate during infection, but it needs to be kept in check to prevent raging inflammation or even an autoimmune shift causing the immune system to attack the body’s own tissues.

Various natural compounds are shown to regulate these processes and keep them in balance, preventing damaging downstream effects.

Those compounds include fish oilcurcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric), vitamin Dresveratrol and quercetin among others.

Dr. Palmer’s free eBook 1200 Studies – Truth Will Prevail, now 730 pages long, includes over 1400 published studies – authored by thousands of scientists and researchers – that contradict what officials are telling the public about vaccine safety and efficacy.

WHO Obliterated All Arguments For Vaccines Or Contact Tracing: Asymptomatic Carriers Don’t Spread COVID-19

by Mike Adams,

The WHO declared that COVID-19 almost never spreads through asymptomatic carriers, all at once wiping out the entire justification for mandatory vaccines and contact tracing.

by Mike Adams, guest writer (excerpts)

As CNBC.com reported:

From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said at a news briefing from the United Nations agency’s Geneva headquarters.

“It’s very rare.”

Who Nwo Bill Gates Vaccines

Asymptomatic spread was [allegedly] the entire reason why world authorities demanded lockdowns, social distancing, masks, and it was also the justification for demanding mandatory vaccinations and contact tracing.

Straight from the mouth of the WHO official.

“They’re not finding secondary transmission onward. It’s very rare.”

“It appears to be rare that an asymptomatic indivudal actually transmits onward” pic.twitter.com/BgWgQku9UT

— cam says BLM (@camhasthoughts) June 8, 2020

All at once, the WHO has just exploded all these narratives that were so aggressively pushed by the CDC, Democrat governors, Dr. Fauci at the White House and even the WHO itself.

Now, based on the WHO’s new admission, not only should every lockdown be immediately ended – any government effort to initiate new lockdowns should be vehemently rejected as being utterly groundless and anti-science.

Mandatory Vaccines Are Not Needed When Asymptomatic Carriers Present Near-Zero Risk

Now that the WHO is claiming there’s virtually no risk of catching the coronavirus from someone who isn’t showing any symptoms, mandatory vaccines are impossible to medically justify since symptomatic carriers can be easily identified and isolated from others.

Simultaneously, the argument that the lockdowns need to continue “until there’s a vaccine” have just been decimated, too.

In reality, the WHO just admitted that lockdowns aren’t necessary at all, except among those who are actively showing symptoms (which is a very tiny percentage of the population, probably far less than 1% on any given day).

It also means that everybody can safely go back to work with nothing more than a low-cost handheld thermometer checking temperatures of workers as they enter the workplace.

No symptoms means no risk of spread, according to the WHO, so checking for symptoms is now synonymous with achieving a safe workplace for all.

It also means the occupancy limits at workplaces should be immediately lifted, allowing all gyms, bars, restaurants and movie theaters to operate at full capacity. 

No Justification For Contact Tracing Either

This WHO declaration also obliterates any argument for so-called “contact tracing.” If there’s no such thing as an asymptomatic carrier, why would we need contact tracing at all?

The whole point of contact tracing is to [allegedly] find people who don’t know they have the infection because they were supposedly infected by an asymptomatic carrier. [The real reason was, of course, total control over the people].

But if the only people who spread the virus are those who show obvious symptoms, then everybody already knows to steer clear of that individual, and contact tracing becomes moot.

Thus, the WHO has just obliterated any argument for contact tracing, too.

Will Apple and Google now remove their contact tracing apps from their mobile devices? Of course not.

Those apps were never really about contact tracing in the first place… the entire sham was always a pretext for total surveillance and spying on users.

Plus, The CDC Says The Virus Can’t Be Spread On Surfaces

All this is on top of the CDC recently announcing that the coronavirus can’t be spread via surfaces, either. So there’s no justification for people wearing gloves or sanitizing packages or grocery bags.

In fact, according to the CDC’s newest admissions, there’s no more reason to avoid shaking hands, either.

So if the coronavirus only spreads through people who are actively showing symptoms, then the entire argument behind everybody wearing masks instantly collapses.

… The entirety of every single argument for lockdowns, masks, social distancing and all the rest has just been blasted to smithereens.

… My mask wearing days are over.

This entire pandemic appears to be conquerable with nothing more than vitamin Cvitamin D and zinc.

Not even hand washing is necessary, according to the new CDC results, and the very idea of waiting around under house arrest for a new experimental vaccine to be produced now seems insanely stupid.

10 Steps To Turn A Pandemic Into The Brave New Normal

Now, dear reader, I know you’re not a member of an institutionally sociopathic elite caste, trying to extend your power back to the good old days of supreme monarchs ordained by God himself.

But imagine you were.

Imagine you were one of the richest people to ever exist, and your vast network of wealth and influence was based on some imaginary money and the widely cultivated belief that “there is no alternative”.

10 Steps To Turn A Pandemic Into The Brave New Normal

Now imagine the lies which secure your position are suddenly and violently challenged. Imagine Yellow Vested protests in the streets of Paris, an independence referendum in Catalonia. Anti-globalists, on the left and right, surging in popularity all around the world.

Imagine Brexit and Bitcoin and PirateBay and the myriad tiny ways people won’t do what they’re told.

What you’re suffering from is a loss of control of the narrative. What you need, really, is a new story. Something to instil everyone with a sense of common purpose. To frighten them, and distract them and keep them busy.

You need a threat, something that will make everyone “come together”. To put aside “divisions” and “hate” and all work together to face a “common enemy”.

And enemies, like cakes and lemonade, are always far more satisfying when you make them yourself.

Here are the 10 steps you should employ, if you want to turn an unthreatening virus into a global power grab.

  1. Start with a poorly defined virus, add an inaccurate test for it, and encourage as many terminally or critically ill people as possible to be repeat tested until they test positive.
  2. Report your inevitably very high death rates and get vague about whether these people died OF the virus or simply WITH it.
  3. Create a ‘response’ to the ‘crisis’ that rolls out a vast network of authoritarian measures, some of which have been in planning for a long while, and only a minority of which have any possible application to pandemic-prevention. (Make sure to cancel elections until further notice and to hugely increase police powers of arrest and surveillance)
  4. Shut down your hospitals to all but ‘covid cases’. Cancel elective surgeries, kidney dialysis, cancer treatments, normal GP consultations and all “non-emergency healthcare”. Thus inevitably increasing all-cause mortality.
  5. Change your laws in numerous ways to allow almost all of these new deaths to bypass normal checks and balances and be easily diagnosed as ‘covid-19 related’, either with the inaccurate test or simply by ‘clinical presentation’.
  6. In case some attending medics are reluctant to go along with this, change the law to allow a single MD, who may never even have seen the patient in question, to diagnose covid19 at his/her own discretion.
  7. Report the startling numbers of ‘new cases’ you find as a result of these various manipulations, as evidence for how essential the new authoritarian measures are for ‘saving lives’.
  8. With no sense of irony introduce mandatory Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)s for any demographic you consider useless eaters. (If challenged talk about human suffering, limited healthcare resources and ventilators)
  9. Don’t forget to add any ensuing deaths to the covid19 totals. (source)
  10. Make sure the media calls anyone who questions any part of this a ‘conspiracy theorist’.

Not only will these ten steps allow you to create a quasi-fascist police state, but the chattering classes will actually criticise you for not being enough of a police state and beg for more.

No doubt some will say this is excessively cynical, maybe even ‘conspiratorial’. But is it?

Since February 2020 we have dedicated this site to bringing you the factual reality of the entity called the “covid19 pandemic”. We have done this using official statistics and data, and the ignored testimony of experts in the field.

What has the orthodox story brought, in the same time frame?

The claim for this being a unique pathology requiring unique levels of intervention is being made every day, in virtually every mainstream outlets, many alt news outlets and by virtually every major government and health-related NGO.

It’s a deafening cacophony, a 24/7 bullhorn of fear and certitude, a fog of headlines and speculation and ‘what ifs’ and ‘some experts claim’ and forests of unsourced or unexplained numbers.

But what is it based on? What data, what statistics, what observations are forming the basis of this narrative?

Is there anything solid behind the noise?

Despite the atmosphere of panic being generated, and despite frequent usage of epithets like ‘deadly virus’ in the popular press, no one is claiming covid19 kills a lot of people.

In fact quite the opposite, as we pointed out recently. The very same sources that are promoting the need for unique action over this virus will tell you in the next breath that there is nothing uniquely dangerous about it at all.

According to the UK’s chief medical officer, 80% of those infected will get no symptoms or a mild cold, only a tiny minority will even need treatment in hospital, and even of those, the vast majority will survive.

So, what, in actual real-world terms, is being claimed? If the problem isn’t that this virus kills a lot of people, what is the problem?

The only response to that is to talk about health services being overrun due to the ‘R0’. As if you can take that number in isolation and have it mean something.

It’s nonsense. A high R0 is not concerning if the virus is harmless to most people who encounter it. The common cold has an R0 of between 2-3, pretty much the same as SARSCOV2. It also can kill vulnerable people, sometimes in large numbers.

So, if this argument makes sense we should be locked down permanently for fear of catching a sniffle.

The R0 argument used to get additional cred from referring to the Imperial model and its prediction that the health service would be overrun if some kind of lockdown was not enforced.

But this is more than problematic. The Imperial model has now been widely discredited, and its author, Neil Ferguson, exposed as a serial incompetent, or serial data-fudger for the govt or the Gates Foundation. It can no longer be used to support either the claim for uniqueness or the argument for lockdown. There is nothing to show it does either very well if at all.

Which means the entire ‘flatten the curve’ meme is also discredited, by the way. Far from being overrun, the NHS is virtually shut down, apart from those almost empty covid19 wards. Yet apparently it’s going to take the UK govt 12 months to get elective surgeries back.

Because, you know, reasons.

Covid19 reasons.

NOT an opportunistic bid to finally shut down and privatise or otherwise commandeer the NHS.

That’s definite.

Seriously though, people. If you think there is any coherence, rational thought or data behind the global, Gatesian official position – please tell me where it is.

Researchers: 100% Covid-19 Cure Rate Using Intravenous Chlorine Dioxide

Preliminary data from a clinical trial involving more than 100 covid-19 patients in Ecuador has resulted in a claimed 100 cure rate within four days, according to Andreas Kalcker who is closely following the results of the effort.

The tests were carried out by the Asociacion Ecuatoriana de Medicos Expertos en Medicina Integrativa, a group of integrative medicine practitioners.

Ecuador has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus, and the current “standard of care” promoted by Western medicine — largely based on the use of ventilators — has been killing the vast majority of critical patients while utterly failing to address the real root of the problem.

Researchers 100% Covid 19 Cure Rate Using Intravenous Chlorine Dioxide

Covid-19 isn’t an Acute Respiratory Disease (ARD), it turns out.

Rather, it often presents as an inflammation and blood clotting condition (see The Lancet research, below) which causes the blood to be unable to carry oxygen, resulting in patient hypoxia and eventual asphyxiation.

This is why intravenous chlorine dioxide — which immediately delivers a high dose of oxygen to blood cells — is believed to work so effectively against covid-19.

It reportedly restores the oxygen-carrying capacity of hemoglobin and clears the clotting in the lungs, all while destroying pathogens.

Chlorine dioxide researcher and advocate Andreas Kalcker has posted a video (in Spanish) where he explains the findings.

That video, entitled, “Mas de 100 Casos de Covid-19 recuperados con CDS por medicos de Aememi,” is found at this link on Lbry.tv.

A video embed is offered here:

In the video, Andreas explains that researchers were able to achieve a complete cure in just four days through the use of intravenous chlorine dioxide (ClO2).

Here’s a photo of some of the researchers holding syringes of chlorine dioxide, which is then infused into the patients’ blood, where it releases a wave of oxygen that researchers believe saturates the blood with O2 while killing pathogens:

Another clinical trial involving chlorine dioxide is currently under way, documented by the US National Library of Medicine at ClinicalTrials.gov.

The study uses oral chlorine dioxide (rather than intravenous) and is entitled, “Determination of the Effectiveness of Oral Chlorine Dioxide in the Treatment of COVID 19.”

The trial is being conducted by the Genesis Foundation and involves 20 patients.

The ClinicalTrials.gov identifier for that trial is NCT04343742.

Andreas Kalcker explains in his video that chlorine dioxide is a powerful disinfectant that destroys viruses and bacteria.

The substance has long been used in water purification processes and is approved by various US government agencies for as a water treatment and purification agent.

This video frame shows blood cells being flooded with oxygen from ClO2, instantly reducing clotting / coagulation:

Covid-19 is not an acute respiratory disease

In another bombshell science paper published May 7, 2020, in The Lancet, researchers Dennis McGonagle and others determined that covid-19 is not a respiratory disease but rather “diffuse pulmonary intravascular coagulopathy,” a kind of blood clotting that presents in lung tissue.

This explains why patients with covid-19 are dying from hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and are frequently killed by the use of ventilators.

As an ICU doctor from New York warned months ago, doctors are treating the wrong disease.

(That doctor’s YouTube channel was deleted and all his videos were censored, of course. No one is allowed to question medical orthodoxy in the medical police state known as the United States of America.)

Study authors also found the inflammation triggers a worsening of the condition, which implies that anti-inflammatory interventions might be the key to saving lives and ending the pandemic.

From the study:

The immune mechanism underlying diffuse alveolar and pulmonary interstitial inflammation in COVID-19 involves a MAS-like state that triggers extensive immunothrombosis…

MAS stands for Macrophage Activation Syndrome, and it is an inflammatory response stemming from an over-reactive immune response, similar to the “cytokine storm” that’s being widely discussed (which vitamin C helps prevent, according to published research). As the study explains:

The severity of systemic inflammation in response to human coronavirus family members has features reminiscent of a cytokine storm or macrophage activation syndrome (MAS), also known as secondary haemophagocytic lymphohistocytosis (sHLH).

Figure 1 from the study:

Covid 19 Lung Tissue Clotting Inflammation

To simplify these findings, covid-19 is not acute viral pneumonia impacting the respiratory system but rather an inflammation-based immunological response that leads to thrombosis (clotting in the lungs) which kills the patient.

The use of ventilators only makes the problem worse, which is why previous observational studies have found that 88% of patients put on ventilators end up dying. They are dying because the ventilator treatment is the wrong treatment.

Chlorine dioxide is reportedly saving 100 percent of the patients studied so far because chlorine dioxide floods the blood with instantly usable oxygen while killing the pathogens responsible for clotting.

There is also anecdotal evidence that some people are beating covid-19 infections with high doses of aspirin, a blood thinner, although this information should not be taken as advice for treatment, and far more research is needed on blood thinners and anti-inflammatory interventions.

This may also help explain why turmeric and vitamin D are associated with strong reductions in inflammation in the body, which may prove useful in balancing the immune response and preventing the kind of imbalance that can lead to immune system overreactions.

The criminal medical cartels are censoring all treatments and cures that work to save lives

Notably, the criminal Big Pharma cartels and corrupt government regulators (like the FDA, FTC, CDC) are going out of their way to try to criminalize or suppress any non-vaccine, non-pharma solutions that might save lives.

Over the last month, we’ve all witnessed an astonishing level of aggression and mafia-style tactics used by the FDA and FTC against pioneering researchers offering a variety of possible solutions, such as chlorine dioxide or intravenous vitamin C.

They’ve even declared war on hydroxychloroquine and the medical establishment has been engineering clinical trials which are designed to fail from the start in order to discredit the off-patent, affordable drug.

There is no doubt that Big Pharma’s obedient government lackeys are at war with truth and are desperately trying to suppress information about natural cures and integrative treatments that might eliminate covid-19 before vaccines can be made available.

The techno-fascist tech giants like Facebook, Google, Vimeo, YouTube and Twitter are all-in with Big Pharma, going out of their way to censor and destroy all information that criticizes vaccines or offers wisdom about natural treatments or integrative medicine interventions.

This criminal cabal of Big Tech and Big Pharma is the enemy of humanity, as they are deliberately working to worsen the pandemic, increase suffering and death and extend the punishing lockdowns for as long as possible in order to cause several economic damage while preparing the masses for mandatory vaccines.

We are all witnessing a powerful criminal gang of corporations and regulators who are deliberately seeking to destroy human society as we know it today, and they are the gatekeepers of information on the ‘net (and in the news).

[The internet was perfectly fine before the powers that shouldn’t be decided to destroy it. Now censorship and propaganda are rampant online, and Google and YouTube searches are no longer relevant since they promote the dinosaur media lies rather than delivering the actual search trends, as they used to. The MSM is shoved down our throats even deeper, while independent researchers are delisted, etc.]

This is why we are repeating our call for the CEOs of all the top tech giants to be arrested and charged with crimes against humanity, then prosecuted in a court of law.

Over the weekend, a member of Italy’s Parliament gave a rousing speech in which she labeled Bill Gates a “vaccine criminal” and demanded he be arrested and charged with crimes against humanity.

Such efforts should not be limited to Bill Gates, however. They must include the criminals of other tech giants as well as the corrupt, anti-human criminals running the FDA, FTC and CDC, among others.

Their crimes against humanity must not go unanswered, and they must be held accountable in a court of law.

The destructive, anti-human agendas of Big Pharma and Big Tech are incompatible with human freedom and a sustainable human civilization.

These anti-human institutions must be permanently dismantled, and humanity must rise up against this threat in the same way we once awakened against the Third Reich and the rise of Nazi fascism and the Holocaust.

Right now, Big Pharma, Big Tech, the FDA and the CDC are plotting to kill billions of human beings with an engineered bioweapon, a risky vaccine, and high-fatality prescription drugs that make people more vulnerable to covid-19.

These enemies of humanity must be stopped, and the truth about chlorine dioxide must be set free so that human beings can be saved from suffering and death.

To learn more about the establishment’s war on truth (and war on humanity), watch my recent interview with Dr. Judy Mikovits, who has also been subjected to extreme censorship for raising the alarm about how vaccines are spreading infectious disease.

Louis Pasteur vs. Antoine Bechamp: Know the True Causes of Disease

Mainstream medicine believes that virtually all illness is caused by germs or genetic hereditary weakness, as well as deformities and trauma injuries. Their solution and strategy is to have us believe that there are over 10,000 different diseases and that each of these diseases requires outside intervention from drugs and surgery. The truth is that most illness is due to cellular malfunction caused by cellular toxicities and cellular malnutrition, both of which can be avoided and overcome naturally.

Bacteria-Germs-Cells.jpg

It was Louis Pasteur, the so-called “father of modern germ theory” so widely revered by mainstream medicine, who was largely responsible for germ theory being a primary precept of today’s medical practice. Few people are aware of the controversy which surrounded Pasteur in his early days or of the work of a more esteemed contemporary whose works Pasteur plagiarized and distorted. That contemporary was fellow French Academy of Sciences member Antoine Bechamp, one of France’s most prominent and active researchers and biologists whose theories and research results stood in stark opposition to Pasteur’s germ theory.

Pasteur essentially dug up the germ theory of disease and put his name on it. It was not a new idea. The concept, which theorizes that many diseases are caused by germs, had actually been outlined by other people many years before. Pasteur nevertheless claimed to have “discovered” germs. Bechamp, on the other hand, proved through original research that most diseases are the result of diseased tissue and that bacteria and viruses are largely after-effects instead of causes of disease.

Antoine Bechamp was able to scientifically prove that germs are the chemical by-products and constituents of pleomorphic microorganisms enacting upon the unbalanced, malfunctioning cell metabolism and dead tissue that actually produces disease. Bechamp found that the diseased, acidic, low-oxygen cellular environment is created by a toxic/nutrient deficient diet, toxic emotions, and a toxic lifestyle. His findings demonstrate how cancer develops through the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells.
After some initial controversy, Pasteur’s germ theory ended up winning the day with mainstream medicine – owing in large part to the fact that the theory enabled mainstream medicine to hugely profit from the patented drugs and treatments for fighting germs. After all, had Bechamp’s discoveries been incorporated into current medical curriculum, it would likely have meant a virtual elimination of disease and the end of the pharmaceutical industry.

The germ theory of medicine stands in stark contrast to thousands of years of man looking to nature to nourish and heal it, dating back to ancient Chinese medicine which treated the whole body instead of the symptoms of illness. As Hippocrates, “the father of medicine” observed 2400 years ago, “Nature is the physician of man.” Hippocrates also advised, “Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pots if you can cure your patient with food.”

Though mainstream medicine might have us believe otherwise, the simple truth is that no one ever became ill due to a deficiency in pharmaceutical drugs Lack of nutrition combined with exposure to toxins is what causes us to become ill.

Someday, germ theory and unnatural drugs will be relegated to the science junk pile where they belong and man will re-discover the value of eating a nutrient-dense organic diet, avoiding toxins and nutritional deficiencies and living a healthy lifestyle. When that happens, the words of Thomas Edison may prove to be a welcome prophesy:

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

“This Too Shall Pass”: 3 Things to Remember Amid Coronavirus Panic

While mass media is steadily encouraging fear and panic, we actually need to calm down and take a deep breath. Here are some things to remember in these trying times.

In these past weeks, we’ve witnessed a series of major historical events of a magnitude that is still difficult to fathom. With these events came a wave of panic that is palpable both on a local and a global level. And, in some ways, that panic is understandable. The specter of an invisible yet deadly disease spreading at an exponential rate has terrified humans for centuries.

At the time of writing these lines, we’re at this strange period of uncertainty where we have no idea where this is going and what kind of impact it will have on humanity. How long will this last? How many people will die? Will the world economy collapse?

This unprecedented situation has triggered in many individuals a great deal of fear and anxiety – steadily fed by a constant influx of alarming news by mass media. Meanwhile, while the masses are physically confined in small spaces and mentally paralyzed with fear, things are happening behind the scenes.

In these trying times, vigilant citizens need to be more vigilant than ever. And that means taking a step back, taking a deep breath and remaining clear-headed.

With that being said, here are a few things we need to remember now and always.

1- “This Too Shall Pass”

If COVID-19 is causing in you feelings of fear, panic, and anxiety, please repeat to yourself this timeless saying: “This too shall pass”. Because it will.

In 1858, Abraham Lincoln famously recounted:

“It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: “And this, too, shall pass away.” How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!

Often found in wisdom literature of the ancient Near East, the adage “this too shall pass” aptly sums up the unconditionally temporary nature of human condition. It is a reminder that every single event in human history, whether it is a negative or a positive one, inevitably becomes a thing of the past. And, although there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel right now, this virus will also inevitably become a thing of the past.

The only question is “when?”. Not unlike all other living things in the world, epidemics rise, peak and decline. Sooner or later, this thing will peak and it will decline. In the past decades, SARS and H1N1 caused a great deal of panic. However, the only thing they are infecting now is history books.

While current world events might seem overwhelming, we still have full control of ourselves and our surroundings. Which leads me to my next point.

2- You Don’t Need Up-to-the-Minute News Updates

If you can take away one thing from this site is that critical thinking is required when dealing with mass media. Sometimes, it doesn’t have our best interest at heart and, sometimes, it is even outright toxic. As people are confined to their homes with little to do, the urge to keep up with the news is constant. However, not all news is good to consume. Some of it actually is vile, toxic crap.

For instance, an article in Canada’s National Post titled What might our lives look like when Canada is in the full grip of COVID-19? dug up an obscure report dating from 2009, quoted its grimmest parts and linked them to what is happening now. I will spare you the details, but the article talks about things such as “stockpiling body bags, choosing a central place where people bring corpses of family members and identifying hockey and curling rinks cold enough to be temporary morgue sites”.

The article brought forth no useful information, just wild speculations that poke on people’s latent fears. Gladly, not every reader lapped up the unnecessary fear-mongering. Here are two comments from the article.

Another article from another Canadian publication titled Cancel your March Break straight-up begins with these words:

“Fear is the right reaction to the coronavirus”.

I’m sorry, but no. The only time that fear is the “right reaction” is when a bear is chasing you and you need the adrenaline boost to outrun it. In the case of a global crisis with lots of moving parts that require careful planning, fear is not the “right reaction”. Fear leads to panic-induced, irrational decisions. And a prolonged state of fear can be extremely damaging for one’s mental health.

After a whole lot of fear-mongering, the article ends with these words:

“Be afraid. Be very afraid.”

I’m sorry, but no. Now, more than ever, we need to remain calm, rational and level-headed. And limiting our daily intake of “panic news” is a great start. Trust me, I know that it is difficult to resist the urge to grab one’s phone and look-up news articles about the virus. I sometimes find myself doing it without even realizing it. But it is simply not healthy or even necessary to do so.

You don’t need to get a mild panic attack each time the number of confirmed cases goes up a notch. You don’t need to mildly despair each time an artist cancels a world tour. More importantly, if you have children, they don’t need to see you turn into a panicky shell of a person. Which leads me to my final point.

3- Life Goes On

If you look outside, the sun is still rising and birds are still chirping. You are still on this Earth and you still have one life to live. Even if you are in lockdown, quarantine or whatever else, you are still in control of yourself and your surroundings. You still need to sleep well, eat healthily and exercise regularly. If you’re stuck at home, put down your phone for a while and use this time to take care of your people, read a good book, work on creative projects and, if possible, go outside and seek the healing presence of nature. Coincidentally enough, in my annual end-of-year articles, I constantly suggest readers to do these exact things. That’s because, despite the constant noise of mass media, the most important things in life happen outside of it.

While this advice might sound extremely boring and generic, this is what needs to be done right now in order to remain vigilant citizens. We need to remain sharp and focused, not weak and fearful. Because, at this point, it doesn’t matter where this virus comes from, what (or who) is behind it and how dangerous it really is. It already managed to shut down the entire world.

Soon, we will need to ask some important questions: Who benefited from this situation? Who went for a power grab? What kind of companies weathered the storm? Where did the world economy shift to? What kind of local and global policies were introduced?

To properly answer these questions, we need to remain strong and watchful. Because, no matter what happens in the next months … this too shall pass.

10 “Healthy” Foods That You Shouldn’t Eat

Companies in the food industry are experts of deception. They slap clever wording on their labels like “low fat,” “natural,” or “heart healthy” with the intention of making you believe their product is a healthy choice. But the sad truth is, many foods you find in the grocery store that are advertised as healthy are nothing of the sort.

This makes it exceptionally confusing and difficult for the average person to determine the difference between a true health food and a marketing gimmick.

To sort out fact from fiction, here are 10 popular “health foods” that are, in actuality, horrible for your health:

10 “healthy” Foods That You Shouldn’t Eat

1. Diet Or Zero Calorie Soda

Diet sodas are a popular choice among people who want soda without gaining weight from all the sugar normal soft drinks contain. Unfortunately, zero calorie sodas are just another marketing trick—there’s nothing “diet” about them.

Even though they contain artificial sweeteners to lower the sugar content and they have “diet” in their name, research shows that diet sodas can actually cause you to gain weight (1).

This could be due to the fact that artificial sweeteners encourage sugar cravings (2). They also trick the brain into expecting something sweet, causing a spike in insulin (3). Animal studies also suggest artificial sweeteners change the gut microbiome in a way that promotes obesity (4). These three effects create the perfect recipe for weight gain.

2. Refined Vegetable Oils

Processed vegetable oils like canola, soy, and corn oil are not healthy despite what Big Food companies tell you. Many are GMO, or genetically modified, to withstand multiple applications of the toxic weed killer glyphosate, and these chemicals leave residues that get carried into countless foods.

These vegetable oils also go through a caustic refining process using toxic hexane and other chemical additives. This results in an oil that will readily oxidize and go rancid. These oils are also high in omega-6 fats which can trigger inflammation in the body (5).

3. Fat-Free Or Low-Fat Foods

Unlike fruits and veggies which are naturally fat free, processed foods that claim to be low-fat or fat-free are typically modified to remove the fat. But when you take the fat out of food, it loses a significant amount of flavor.

To make up for this loss of flavor, companies add massive amounts of sugar and salt. This results in a product that’s substantially worse for you than the original full-fat food. According to Dr. Mark Hyman from the Cleveland Clinic, sugar is what makes you fat—not fat itself (6). You would be better off opting for something with natural fat content, so long as it’s not refined vegetable oil.

4. Processed Fruit Juice

Food companies want you to think that fruit juices are a healthy option. In reality, processed fruit juice is just as bad as soda. When fruit is stripped of its skin, pulp, and flesh, you’re essentially left with flavored sugar water.

Fruit juices like orange juice contain almost as much sugar as soda—around 5 to 8 teaspoons per cup. Moreover, research shows that fructose (fruit sugar) is the most problematic part of fruit with high doses raising triglycerides and increasing the risk for heart disease and diabetes (7).

A much healthier option is to juice whole fruits and veggies, mostly nutritious green veggies. If you don’t have the time or want the clean up of a juicer, you can pick up a tasty organic green juice powder for a fast and easy green juice.

5. Non-Organic Strawberries

Strawberries can be an excellent healthy snack, with research showing their intake is especially beneficial for the heart. The catch is that they must be organic in order to be truly healthy. Why?

Like many other non-organic fruits, conventional strawberries are riddled with toxic pesticides. According to research from the Environmental Working Group, even after washing the fruit, strawberries have topped the list for the most toxic pesticides.

If you don’t have access to fresh organic strawberries, you can usually find them in the frozen aisle, perfect to add to smoothies or make a healthy treat.

6. Most Protein Bars

Much like other processed foods, protein bars are typically loaded to the brim with questionable additives. They often contain ingredients like corn syrup, brown rice syrup, processed vegetable oils, artificial sweeteners, unknown “natural flavors” and synthetic vitamins.

The good news is, not all protein bars are unhealthy. When in doubt, pick the protein bar that has recognizable whole food sourcing, the least number of additives, and the lowest sugar content. Or, you can skip the processed protein bars altogether, and opt for a healthy delicious protein shake sourced from organic superfoods.

7. Gluten-Free Snacks

Avoiding gluten is a full-fledged health craze. And for good reason too since many people have sensitivity to gluten. However, food companies have taken advantage of the anti-gluten trend by making customers think products are healthy simply because they are gluten-free.

But taking the gluten out of wheat doesn’t change the fact that non-organic wheat is also usually contaminated with a toxic pesticide called glyphosate which is linked to cancer and gut-microbiome disruption.

Many gluten-free foods replace wheat with rice, which can have a higher level of toxic heavy metals such as arsenic. And gluten-free snacks may still be heavily processed and high in sugar, salt, and toxic additives. So, buyer beware on gluten-free food to always check the label for possible harmful ingredients.

8. Farm-Raised Fish

Oily fish can be an excellent source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. The important thing to realize, however, is that only wild-caught fish are healthy.

Farmed fish may be contaminated with pesticides, parasites and treated with antibiotics (8). Farm-raised salmon has been found to have significantly more environmental pollutants than wild salmon, including toxic dioxins (9).

However, overfishing of many species is a huge concern, and a reason to get your essential fatty acids from plant sources instead of endangered fish stocks. By eating plant-based omegas, you’ll also be saving many other marine species that get inadvertently killed through bycatch (10).

9. Margarine

It used to be that butter was demonized by doctors and health “experts” alike. Instead, they recommended that margarine be used to butter your bread and make your mashed potatoes.

Only years later did research show that those who did switch from butter to margarine were much more likely to die from heart disease (11). Despite this fact, food companies still promote margarine as a healthy alternative.

The problem is that margarine is a highly processed food, typically made with the same refined GMO vegetable oils that trigger harmful inflammation. It’s far better to eat real grass-fed butter in moderation.

10. Non-Organic Yogurt

If you eat yogurt often, you may want to double check how much sugar is in your favorite brand. Most reduced-fat or flavored yogurts are full of various forms of sugar or artificial sweeteners. Some of these top brands contain up to half of your daily recommended added sugar intake.

Sugar isn’t the only issue either. Many types of yogurt have syrups derived from GMO corn, artificial colors or other unsavory additives. As with many foods, picking organic may be the best option to ensure a healthy yogurt.
