One of the most critical issues of our times is this question: Who decides what is a fact? (Regarding health, climate or any other subject.) Do the gen-Z fact checkers at Facebook or YouTube have the background, objectivity and the wisdom? I don’t think so. In any case, they must blindly implement the corporate guidance from higher up the corporate ladder. It is likely that the execs subscribed to “The Trusted News Initiative wherein media of all kinds (certainly not HBN) circled the wagons and agreed to basically repeat whatever the government narrative is. But, is the government to be trusted to tell only the truth? If only that was the case. Library page lists a few examples of the government’s history of bad to horrible health advice. BTW, it is not necessary to believe that there is some grand dark conspiracy (although there might actually be one). There is plenty of pressure to push a certain agenda because of human egos, conflicts of interest including financial ones, conflicting and even faulty science, plus plain old hunger for power.
HBN will continue to air and publish information that I sincerely believe to be true—based on the quality of studies, historical context, track record of the people involved and common sense. Below are some tidbits that you won’t likely hear from the mainstream media. This is especially truewhenever it might cast doubt on sponsors that pay them $billions in advertising. That applies to all of these.
- Cell phones and tumor risk. New research has drawn a strong link between cell phone radiation and tumors, particularly in the brain. A large review of studies, Cellular Phone Use and Risk of Tumors: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis took a comprehensive look at statistical findings from 46 different studies around the globe and found that the use of a cell phone for more than 1,000 hours, or about 17 minutes a day over a ten-year period, increased the risk of tumors by 60 percent. [!!!] Researchers also said that cell phone use for 10 or more years doubled the risk of brain tumors. Researchers noted that that cell tower radiation can cause neurological disorders including headaches, fatigue, memory and sleep problems and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Furthermore, a cellphone’s radiation increases when the signal is weak. [Surprise, surprise…studies in the review that were funded by the mobile phone industry were less likely to show harm.] An article by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) about their own study, concluded that “EWG’s new guidelines, to focus on children’s health, recommend that children’s exposure overall be 200 to 400 times lower than the whole-body exposure limit set by the FCC in 1996. The EWG study also noted links to heart tumors in lab animals.
This is not a new concept. In 2011, The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, classified cellphone radiation as a ‘possible carcinogen’ based on human epidemiological studies which found an increased risk of glioma, a malignant brain cancer, associated with cellphone use.
The Food and Drug Administration states on its website: “To date, there is no consistent or credible scientific evidence of health problems caused by the exposure to radio frequency energy emitted by cell phones.” [Hmmm…the mobile industry has a lot of money and a lot of lobbyists.]
Recommendation—use cell phones less; avoid putting them to your ear and, if possible use speaker phone or corded ear buds and in general keep away from the body. Be extra careful if you are in an area with weak service strength. [limited bars]
- “The Effects of Vitamin D and COVID-Related Outcomes. An overwhelming volume of research makes it clear that this hormone produced in our skin can save lives.” The Epoch Times is not afraid to publish non-mainstream positions like this excellent article by Joseph Mercola about vitamin D.
- Vitamin K2 and covid-19. This from a Whole Foods Magazine article “A new [small and preliminary] study supported by Kappa Bioscience has confirmed that vitamin K status is lower in hospitalized patients with COVID-19, compared to a healthy population control group. The research also showed low vitamin K status to be predictive of higher mortality.” Isn’t it nice when we can take something with multiple benefits such as vitamin K (for bones and cardiovascular health) rather than a pharmaceutical something that comes with multiple risk factors.
- Quercetin and covid-19. Another Whole Foods Magazine article stated: “Quercetin supplementation, in combination with standard care, could aid in improving the early conditions of COVID-19, and help prevent the severity of the SARS-CoV-2 infection, according to two new human studies…Quercetin has broad-spectrum antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-protective effects, according to a press release, making it a potential candidate to support conditions involving oxidative stress, inflammation, and immunity.”
[Remember that Bill Sardi has long recommended quercetin and vitamin D. Also, Peter A. McCullough, MD recommends them as part of his early treatment protocol.]
Of course, the stakeholders (FDA, NIH, CDC) would say that those supplements are “not proven”. Remember, “not proven” is vastly different from “disproven”. The FDA’s bar for “proven” is so extremely high and expensive that only rich pharmaceutical companies can qualify. And, even if a supplement did qualifying research, the product could not legally claim to prevent or treat disease. Go figure.
