Does SCIENCE support Mask Mandates?

* buy the pictured mask (for fun, not health)

The controversy about masks has become contentious, even violent at the extremes. Once minds are made up, they do not seem to change—on either side of the debates. The advice to “follow the science” sounds like an excellent idea, but people too often assume that the policy makers have done that when making the rules. Sometimes the establishment has not used science to advance their agenda, they just chose to stick to their position and shame skeptics. As with much of the pandemic lore, we must investigate for ourselves. Fortunately, Dr. Joseph Mercola did a thorough review on masks to make that part easy for us. Because of frequent censorship and government pressure, this popular journalist has started to pull down his content after 48 hours. Therefore, by repeating his information here, we are helping to keep his important message available. The bullet points below are a quick review that Dr. Mercola provided in his longer, detailed writeup. It includes 27 citations of studies and his sources. Click here to read the whole article.

An analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

The article at-a-glance

[Spoiler alert…the science does NOT show that they help, at least not the ones commonly in use. A well-fitting N95 and KN95 may have some benefit..]

  • “Driving the irrational and unscientific narrative about mask wearing is the censoring of truthful and factual information by tech platforms. YouTube recently banned a video by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul in which he stated that masks don’t work
  • In a 2020 email obtained via a freedom of information act request, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated, “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material”
  • February 25, 2020, U.K. health authorities published guidance discouraging the use of masks even for health care workers in residential care facilities, as there’s no evidence that they prevent viral spread
  • Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have long been regarded as the gold standard in medical research, yet RCTs are now ignored when it comes to mask wearing
  • Of 14 RCTs that have tested the effectiveness of masks in preventing the transmission of respiratory viruses, 11 suggest masks are either useless or counterproductive. The remaining three suggest masks may be useful, but not to a statistically significant degree.”

Peter McCullough, MD Update – PART 2

August 7th On HBN, we were honored to welcome back Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, FACC, FACP, FAHA, FASN, FNKF, FCRSA (click for bio), to discuss current covid-19 topics. Last week’s blog reviewed key points that he made in the first part of the show. This one covers the balance of that show.

Flying blind with vaccines. We really cannot determine the effectiveness of the vaccines, especially against the Delta variant, because back in May, 2021, the CDC put us on notice that they were not even going to keep track of breakthrough cases of covid-19 among the vaccinated (unless they were hospitalized or died.) In mid-July, NBC polled 27 states (states apparently do keep track) and identified a total of 65,000 breakthrough cases. In Israel, of the total covid cases, 80% have been vaccinated. In the UK, 42% of those with the Delta variant had already been vaccinated. Dr. McCullough estimates that, in the US, the number of covid cases that are vaccinated is around 50%. Do the vaccines reduce severity of the disease? We can’t very well measure that either because we don’t know which patients got treatment and which have not. In Dr. McCullough’s experience, the Delta variant is milder and much more easily treated.

Waning effectiveness / booster? Pfizer said that at 6 months their shots were only 39% effective and continue to drop. After 8 months, Dr. McCullough estimates that there may now be very limited effect. Dr. McCullough will be in the HBN studio on 8/28 and will be able to answer calls. I will ask him about boosters.

Vaccine or gene delivery? The covid-19 “vaccines” are quite unlike any previous vaccine. They are gene delivery therapies which trick the body’s cells into producing the covid virus spike protein (which is toxic). The spike proteins do alert the immune system, but also cause mischief.

Vaccine Risks. Keep in mind that you are not likely to come in contact with the covid virus. Age groups over 70 and certainly 80 are most likely to die from covid, but also to die suddenly from vaccine side effects. The cardiovascular side effects (such as heart inflammation and blood clots) as well as paralysis seem more likely to affect young people. Dr. McCullough noted that in the Moderna testing, animals had fertility problems and he does not think the vaccines have been shown safe during pregnancy. A whistleblower lawsuit seeking to stop the vaccinations, claims that a more careful analysis of CDC statistics shows 45,000 side effect deaths among the vaccinate. The spike protein on the surface of the virus enters the lining of blood vessels and causes clotting, both short term and long term (micro-clots). The spike proteins made by our vaccinated cells do the same thing as the disease and is more dangerous. Some serious vaccine nervous system side effects (including paralysis) don’t present until 6 months later. For more details on the vaccines, check out our Library’s Covid-19 Vaccine Pro / Con page.

Treatment. No other viral or bacterial disease is “managed” by asking the diagnosed patients to just go home and wait until they are sick enough to require hospitalization. Doctors use the “precautionary principle”—treat early even if there is not ideal evidence for the treatments. The EARLY treatments do work and two (and soon to be 3) published studies show that the multi drug (4-6) approach saves lives against covid. Also, the drugs used have been FDA approved as safe for other purposes. The much-maligned Hydroxychloroquine has 200 studies supporting is benefit for covid-19. One recent journal article showed that any type of multi-drug treatment for seniors in nursing facilities reduced mortality by 60%.  (Dr. McCullough has not had a single patient get worse and need to go to the hospital.) Do not forget about the natural approach, which many people have successfully used as their only remedies.

Pushback. Sadly, there has not been any of the usual scientific debate—just censorship. Dr. McCullough received letters criticizing his groundbreaking journal article, Multifaceted highly targeted sequential multidrug treatment of early ambulatory high-risk SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19). The critiques were based on fear and lack of knowledge and did not cite any evidence for their objection. We are grateful for Dr. McCullough’s pioneering courage and are sorry that he has paid a stiff personal and career price. (The “no good deed goes unpunished” principle at work?)

Final approval of the vaccines. Currently the vaccines are being used under an “Emergency Use Authorization.” To give final approval, the FDA will have to ignore the many petitions from health care professional organizations (supported by thousands of doctors and nurses). Then the agency must require a package insert listing all the safety warnings. The drug makers must be happy with the current situation because the government is pretending the shots are safe and doing their marketing for them. Dr. McCullough believes that whole vaccine program should be and ultimately will be shut down because of the safety concerns and lack of efficacy. He also predicts that the virus will degenerate into a mild, routine common cold type disease. (The common cold is also a coronavirus.)

Novavax vaccine? Dr. McCullough is concerned that the Novavax, which many folks are hoping for, may not be a match for the new virus variants that will keep coming along.

Peter McCullough, MD Update – PART 1

We were honored last week to welcome back Peter A. McCullough, MD (click for bio), MPH, FACC, FACP, FAHA, FASN, FNKF, FCRSA to discuss current covid-19 topics. This blog is the first half of a review of points he made. I mentioned on air that Dr. McCullough is paying a heavy price for speaking the truth. Recently, the Dallas Morning News reported that Baylor Scott & White medical system is suing Dr. McCullough for one million dollars! They apparently want to silence him and are using the excuse that some interview hosts failed to mention that the doctor was no longer associated with Baylor after February 2021. Adding insult to injury, Texas A & M then abruptly stripped him of his professor status. We are very grateful that Dr. McCullough is willing to continue helping the public despite such enormous and unfair pressure.

If the scare tactics and bullying to get vaccinated seem coordinated among all major news outlets, that is because they ARE! According to the BBC, “The Trusted News Initiative (TNI) was set up last year to protect the public from “disinformation” and promote only the narrative that the vaccines are safe and effective…no matter what the research and statistics show. “Fact checkers” use only the facts that suit their purpose and routinely contradict and belittle any statements that run counter to the narrative.

Dr. McCullough says it is unusual and very concerning that the government has not been holding press briefings on vaccine safety and effectiveness. There have been 400,000 reports of vaccine harm and the CDC has acknowledged 11,000 deaths. A whistleblower lawsuit using information from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, CMS, (a part of the Department of Health and Human Services, HHS) claims the number of deaths is more like 45,000. Read more. Even that larger number is still a small percentage of the vaccines given, but it is quite significant. In contrast, the swine flu vaccine was taken off the market after only 53 deaths. We need to know what kinds of problems the vaccine is causing. For example, are those cases of paralysis permanent?

What about effectiveness? Looking at the big picture, including here and other countries, 40%-50% of the people in hospitals with covid-19 have been fully vaccinated! That is not what the CDC has misleadingly chosen to report. A study in Israel shows that the Pfizer shot is now just 39 percent effective against preventing infection but still strong at preventing serious illness. A careful broad-based study in California revealed that something like 7 times more people have had covid-19 as previously thought. That should help reach herd immunity.  Dr. McCullough and others report that those who have recovered from covid are immune even to variants; do not benefit from the vaccine; and under no circumstances should take it.

As we discussed previously, the push to spread panic used statistical hanky-panky to exaggerate the case numbers and death statistics. It would also have helped their goal that, according to the CDC, the typically used PCR test was not able to distinguish between covid and the flu.

Dr. McCullough is also not yet convinced that the Delta variant spreads faster. It was tested on cell cultures in the lab, but in real life, some countries, such as Israel, are not experiencing a faster spread compared to the original type. The increase may be due to widespread changes in behavior. The mortality rate has not gone up. It is less than 1% of those hospitalized. NYTimes charts.

Those who have recovered from covid are immune even to variants; do not benefit from the vaccine; and under no circumstances should take it.

Next week, I will cover the balance of the interview. Meanwhile it is very important to be aware that covid is treatable. Here are some useful links: Dr. McCullough’s journal article Multifaceted highly targeted sequential multidrug treatment of early ambulatory high-risk SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19). Here is a printable guide to home-based medical treatment for the virus. Also, from the HBN Library, this reference which discusses natural and nutritional approaches that can be used in combination with medicines.

Bill Sardi Says, “Don’t Panic!”

How to PREVENT covid-19. Now that we know that even fully-vaccinated people can spread the virus, it makes even more sense to avoid crowded indoor spaces. As for masks, unfortunately, they are not as effective as national and local governments, and the media would have us believe. This link to The Healthy American MASK Page lists studies and statistic proving that point as well as pointing out problems associated with wearing masks. (CDC suggestions to wear them outdoors are just nutty.) What does work is building up your immune system effectiveness. This linked Library page has details and doses, but in brief, we’re talking about vitamin D, zinc, vitamin C, resveratrol, selenium, and L-lysine (it is anti-viral). Your immune system will take on any variant the virus changes into. It also makes sense to do what you can to eliminate other risk factors such as obesity. Vitamin B1, in the fat-soluble form (benfotiamine), prevents the deficiency disease, beriberi, which mimics symptoms and dangers of the coronavirus. Coffee, alcohol, and sugar interfere with B1, so allow 2-4 hours between consuming them and taking a B1 supplement

WHY the shots are a problem. The covid vaccines in use so far are not the same mechanism as vaccines we have been used to. In fact, they do not strictly even meet the CDC’s own definition of vaccine. This new approach delivers 40 trillion particles of messenger RNA (mRNA) genetic material that tells our cells to make the spike protein—just like what is on the outside of the covid-19 virus. It allows the virus entrance into our cells. If, as we were told, the vaccine stayed in the arm muscle and simply alerted the immune system to be ready for the covid threat, that might not be a big problem. However, young people (as young as 12), especially males, too often seem prone to myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) soon after the vaccine.

Of even more concern, 75% of the vaccine escapes and circulates through the body! Once this genetic instruction (mRNA) collects in the cells of, for example, the arteries, lungs or ovaries, the spikes it produces, which are toxic, cause small clots (micro-clots) and cause our immune system to attack that tissue. This article by Bill Sardi explains in more detail why it doesn’t make sense to recreate the damage that the virus causes. The spike protein generated by the vaccine makes it easier for the virus to gain access to cells which explains the huge number of breakthrough infections in the vaccinated. This mRNA seems to be imbedded in our cells permanently, so the biggest threat may be years down the road and includes high blood pressure and even heart failure.

Also, historically there have been concerns about the aluminum and mercury contained in other routine vaccines. It isn’t common, but people do die from an almost instant allergic reaction to the covid vaccine ingredients. Other vaccinated people (still relatively rarely) die within a couple of weeks from large clots that cause heart attack and stroke. A former Pfizer employee (whistle blower) discusses concerns with potential ingredients in the covid vaccines.

How to decline the vaccine shots. The linked page on the Healthy American website has useful information such as ”How to Say No to the Needle”, ”How to Get a Religious Exemption”, and ”How to Avoid the Mask”. Hopefully, you can stall because less dangerous vaccines may be available in coming months, e.g. Novavax and BCG.

How to prepare if you simply must take the vaccine. Use all the prevention nutrients because to work, the vaccines depend on a functional immune system. Also, start the anti-clotting recommendations listed in the next section.

What to do if you’ve already been jabbed. If you got one of the vaccines and are reading this, you didn’t die within 48 hours of one of the rare catastrophic allergic reactions…or within 2 weeks due to one of the rare cases of large blood clots that cause heart attacks and strokes. So far so good. However, you may still be rightfully worried about the long-term effect of the vaccine’s mRNA telling your cells to manufacture the toxic spike protein. Mr. Sardi says to keep your blood from being sticky by taking fish oil and garlic supplements. The fibrin micro-clots which form in the small arteries can be broken up with resveratrol and enzymes (e.g. bromelain or nattokinase). Bill’s article, Jab Remorse goes into detail including testing that can be done, but maybe should not be. Another cardio risk, lipoprotein a, is helped by vitamin C. These actions can help offset potential damage, but he says the surest thing is to avoid the shot and thereby not start the clotting process.

What to do when you are INFECTED with covid. The symptoms for most are headache, runny nose, and a sore throat but some report sneezing and fever. Fully vaccinated are more likely to report loss of taste and smell. The testing is getting more reliable but is still not 100%. Immediately take the nutrients and drugs that will keep your disease from becoming so serious that you end up in the hospital on a ventilator (which is a dangerous situation). Here is a printable guide to home-based medical treatment for the virus. Recovering from covid provides a stronger longer lasting immunity than the vaccines do and even the NIH agrees. The Cleveland Clinic Health System opined that if you have recovered from the disease, you don’t need the vaccine.

Supplement sources. For zinc, I recommend Molecular Multi which is the best multivitamin/mineral I’ve found. It has the right amount of zinc and in a good form as well as a good maintenance dose of B1. Resveratrol, (you do not want to stay in a safe range with it)—I take Longevinex which is the only resveratrol product that has been safety tested and researched. On that website you can also buy an excellent unique garlic product, Garlinex. Vitamin D—I prefer this one that combines D with balancing vitamin K, but it is often out of stock. Fish oil—Nordic Naturals and Carlson are good brands. Nattokinase = Jarrow. Jarrow also makes a good bromelain supplement, L-lysine, and the selenium that I take. Vitamin C? Nothing compares with Formula 216 because it is the first 24/7 stress-responsive C supplement.
