WND Exclusive – Try applying ‘My Body My Choice’ slogan to COVID vaccine

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Flu seasons historically begin about week 40 every year. Week 40 in 2020 begins Sept. 28 and ends Oct. 4.

Election Day 2020 is Nov. 3, some five weeks into flu season. I’m sure you remember having to mail-in your ballot during the last election in 2018, and certainly the last presidential election in 2016.

And in the off-chance they allowed you to go the polls, you were required to mask up.

Oh – you don’t remember any of that? Funny – neither do I, because it never happened.

Despite the average of 40,000 to 80,000 deaths per year, America has never locked down or masked up because of the flu, or SARS, or MERS, or the H1N1 swine flu.

But here we are – masked up, locked down and unemployed. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Covid Treatment Might Just Work – Left Doesn’t Care about Coronavirus

by: Brent Smith

President Trump has promoted the safe and prescribed use of hydroxychloroquine for months now and the left has mocked and derided him for. The WHO even halted a study of it due to the results of research showing that the drug not only doesn’t work but is unsafe and deadlier than first thought. But now they’ve changed their tune.

Leftist politicians have reveled in their new-found command and control authority over the public regarding the pandemic. But now, all of the sudden, they’ve found a new cause that has pushed the “killer” virus to back of the bus (so to speak).

I explore the hypocrisy of the left regarding the onset of protesters and rioters that show no regard for the left’s social distance edict. It’s like the politicians no longer care about the pandemic. read more

New L1 Alzheimer’s Treatment

A newly developed compound could attack various facets of Alzheimer's disease
A newly developed compound could attack various facets of Alzheimer’s disease

While its exact causes are unknown, Alzheimer’s disease is commonly associated with clumps of toxic amyloid plaques in the brain, and researchers are continuing to understand the different components that help them take shape. Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a new compound that attacks a number of the key players in the formation of amyloid plaques, significantly decreasing the level of plaques and reducing inflammation in the brain.

The presence of amyloid plaque buildup is considered a hallmark of Alzheimer’s, but it is thought that damage begins to occur in the brain long before these clumps appear. A great deal of research into the disease seeks to attack the building blocks of amyloid plaques. This includes protein fragments called beta-amyloid peptides, which may pose an even greater threat than the plaques themselves.

“Studies have found strong evidence that these soluble peptides are the most neurotoxic species and are causing memory loss and neuron cell death,” says Liviu Mirica, who led the new research. “Plaque formation might be an attempt by the brain to neutralize the threat.”

Along with beta-amyloid peptides, recent research has begun to illuminate the role metal ions might play in driving Alzheimer’s progression. Post-mortem studies have uncovered elevated levels of copper, iron, and zinc in the brains of sufferers, which are thought to interact with and stabilize the beta-amyloid peptides, as well as increasing oxidative stress and brain inflammation.

The natural world is a huge source of life-saving drugs, with plants and animals providing us with all kinds of therapeutic compounds throughout human history. That extends to the sponges that inhabit the seas, with new research detailing how a molecule derived from an Indonesian sea sponge species proved capable of preventing cervical cancer growth in the lab. read more

Marijuana is Much More Powerful

US researchers found most medical marijuana contains THC levels above 15 percent, which is triple what studies suggest is necessary for medical uses such as pain relief
US researchers found most medical marijuana contains THC levels above 15 percent, which is double what studies suggest is necessary for medical uses such as pain relief

A new study has tracked the potency of cannabis products across a number of American states, finding the majority of medical marijuana is stronger than it needs to be for pain relief purposes. The research suggests higher THC levels are unnecessary for medical uses and can increase the risk of negative side effects.

Yellow Journalists Blame Trump for Man’s Death

by: Brent Smith

On Tuesday, the ultra-leftist Guardian website posted an article entitled: “Arizona man dies after attempting to take Trump coronavirus ‘cure’.”

Well that’s a surprise on at least two fronts. First – I wasn’t aware that Trump was president, a doctor and a research scientist. Who knew?

And second, what kind of moron would drink fish tank cleaner – for any reason?

Oh and there is a third point, yet it’s no surprise. It’s the Guardian’s practice of yellow journalism when it comes to reporting on Trump.

If one would read the entire article, you don’t discover the facts, as they are, until paragraph 11 – at least three quarters of the way through the article. The article is only 15 paragraphs long. read more

WND Exclusive – Will the FDA approve Chloroquine to treat Coronavirus?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Something rather remarkable has occurred just recently regarding the Chinese/Wuhan coronavirus. And yes, I said it. Go ahead and call me a racist if you wish.

A treatment has been developed that shows promise at stopping the virus in virtually all patients for whom it’s been administered.

Early tests suggest that it can stop the virus from being contagious in just six days, with little to no side effects.

This is a huge breakthrough that’s happened in no time flat.

I stress that this appears effective as a treatment. It is not a vaccine, but if it’s as effective as advertised, it will buy the time needed to develop one.

Professor Didier Raoult from infection hospital l’Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire (IHU) Méditerranée Infection in Marseille, France, said that, “the first COVID-19 patients he had treated with the drug chloroquine had seen a rapid and effective speeding up of their healing process, and a sharp decrease in the amount of time they remained contagious.” read more

WND Exclusive – Would the ‘Squad’ use an Israel-developed coronavirus vaccine?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Will anti-Semites, like those in the “Squad,” reject a COVID-19 vaccine if it is developed by Israel?

Regarding the coronavirus, as things improve in China, things will likely worsen in America. However, they are not likely to get as bad as it is in others countries, like Italy.

But we have to be careful about comparisons. The effects of this virus are apparently amplified in the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

What isn’t widely publicized is that Italy’s median age is much higher than other European nations, thus it is being hit much harder than nations with younger overall populations.

That being said, the reason why things are improving in China while worsening in the U.S. and elsewhere is the timeline. read more
