We have been caught in a drug war. This has nothing to do with cartels, turf battles or addictive chemicals. This is a war of words about hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), a really old malaria drug being repurposed to treat the coronavirus. When we first started writing about treatments for COVID-19 in March, we were intrigued by preliminary in vitro (test-tube) data. It appeared to us that hydroxychloroquine works by interfering with viral replication. That was the first hint that this medication might be helpful against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Continue reading →
Arsenic poisoning did not kill Napoleon, a new analysis suggests, contrary to claims made in recent years. The results of the study show high levels of arsenic in Napoleon Bonaparte’s hair throughout his life, suggesting he was not poisoned at the end of his life while in exile on the island of Saint Helena. Rather he probably absorbed arsenic constantly throughout his life, the researchers say. Continue reading →
2020 has been a tough year for many of us, least of all those of us who have developed an addiction to opioids.
The “opiate epidemic” has dragged on for many years, and successive Administrations have lacked the will to fully fund a solution to this unarguably dire situation. Continue reading →
A lot is riding on the psychological terror meme of an out-of-control “novel” killer virus that is supposedly killing millions, perhaps tens of millions across the globe. All day, every day the media pumps out constant Covid hysteria and have managed to totally terrorize a large segment of society. They’ve done such a good job that many believe every personal encounter with another human could be potentially lethal! Continue reading →

When the Coronavirus (Covid) epidemic broke out in China, some doctors mentioned hydroxychloroquine as a good medicine with which to treat the illness, because it halts the progress of the illness before it becomes life-threatening.
However, the use of hydroxychloroquine has caused great debate. On the one hand, the World Health Organization (WHO) has refused to grant official recognition of the evidence of its usefulness, and following this line, some countries have not used this medicine. On the other hand, several countries have ignored this indication and have used hydroxychloroquine, either unassisted by other medicines, or in combination with other medicines. Continue reading →
“We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” ~ Dr. Ron Paul, former U.S. Congressman [Texas]
A mandate to wear masks may seem like a simple matter and a “minor inconvenience” to some or many. But I don’t think those who take this position have really considered all its implications and the long-range ramifications and consequences that might accompany the meek and compliant acquiescence to even a “temporary” mask mandate.

Let me educate all of the above who are participating in one of the largest propaganda and misinformation campaigns in United States history, because it appears they have not kept current on the science, or they are not too bright, or they are actively manipulating the people for political purposes that have little to do with any concern for my health or the health of anyone else.

Moderna, which is receiving $483 million from the U.S. government, told lawmakers it would not sell its vaccine at cost. Pfizer has said it would also profit, but has so far taken no government money.
Executives from four companies in the race to produce a coronavirus vaccine — AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna Therapeutics and Pfizer— told lawmakers on Tuesday that they are optimistic their products could be ready by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021. All four companies are testing vaccines in human clinical trials. Continue reading →
To many of us, it has been pretty clear for a long time that Big Pharma engages in very dishonest tactics – and that’s putting it politely – when it comes to pushing their toxic “treatments” on people, but now some people who have worked on the inside are speaking out about their devious practices.
Gwen Olsen worked as a pharmaceutical sales rep for some of the biggest names in pharmacy. During her 15 years in the industry, she worked for manufacturers such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Abbott Laboratories and Johnson & Johnson. Continue reading →
I will never forget the first time I saw those words. I was entering a cancer ward for children. Written on a large easel at the entrance to this ward was the following inscription…
I Am Not Afraid Of Tomorrow,
For I Have Seen Yesterday,
And I Love Today.
I walked past crib after crib. The cribs were like cages. Babes were in these cribs; pitiful small children – starry eyed, listless – some whimpering. They didn’t even notice anyone walking past them. Needless to say, my heart softened – went out to them – and I cried. Continue reading →
A widely read study claiming the use of the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus leads to an increased risk of death has been retracted, the study’s publisher said Thursday.
The Lancet, the medical journal that published the original study in late May, said in a statement that they “can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources,” and “due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.” Continue reading →
An international poll of thousands of doctors rated the Trump-touted anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine the best treatment for the novel coronavirus.
Of the 2,171 physicians surveyed, 37 percent rated hydroxychloroquine the “most effective therapy” for combating the potentially deadly illness, according to the results. Continue reading →
The Facts: Professor Didier Raoult has published his early results for Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for moderate to severe COVID-19 patients. 973 patients out of 1063, according to him, have shown “a good clinical outcome.”
Reflect On: Why is there always so much controversy and politicization of science and treatments? Why are these treatments controversial within the mainstream, but vaccines cannot even be questioned? Continue reading →
Diet has hardly any effect on your cholesterol level; the drugs that can lower it often have serious or fatal side effects; and there is no evidence at all that lowering your cholesterol level will lengthen your life.
One morning in early October of 1987 the U.S. health authorities announced that 25 percent of the adult population had a dangerous condition requiring medical treatment. Since there were no symptoms, it would be necessary to screen the entire population to identify those in danger. More than half of those screened would be dispatched to their physicians for medical tests and evaluation. Then for one out of four adults treatment would begin. The first step would be a strict diet under medical supervision. If within three months the dieting had not achieved specified results that could be verified by laboratory tests, a more severe diet would be imposed. The final step for many patients would be powerful drugs to be taken for the rest of their lives… Continue reading →

Over the past three weeks, there’s been debate over whether hydroxychloroquine, a drug used for decades to treat malaria, can help ease the symptoms of Wuhan coronavirus. During White House press briefings, reporters have done their best to shoot down the possibility.
But doctors around the country and the world are using it and seeing positive results… Continue reading →
