COVID-19 | REMDESIVIR
More deaths in Covid-19 patients given remdesivir than placebo, 15% vs 13%
On April 29, 2020 Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leads on the coronavirus Task Force for the White House on Covid-19, said that there is “clearcut evidence” that Remdesivir works for Covid-19, and that it is now the new “standard of care.”
Here are the results of another study that questions whether this is true or not.
A randomized, placebo-controlled Chinese trial found that 15% of those with Covid-19 given remdesivir died versus 13% of those given a placebo.
In other words, people given remdesivir were more likely to die than those given a placebo.Read the entire article | Email this article

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE FOR COVID-19
Hydroxychloroquine decreased mortality in critically-ill COVID-19 patients (19% vs 46%)
Among 568 critically-ill patients treated in a similar manner, 45.8% of those not given hydroxychloroquine died (238/520) versus 18.8% of those given hydroxychloroquine (9/48) — 200 mg twice a day for 7-10 days — according to a retrospective study from China.Read the entire article | Email this article

COVID-19 AND HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE
Why I do not believe the Veterans Administration (VA) hydroxychloroquine study
I do not believe the Veterans Administration (VA) hydroxychloroquine study which seems to suggest that they drug increases the risk of death in Covid-19 patients.
They only reported on 70 deaths through April 11, 2020, but a graph on Stars & Stripes website shows that there were roughly 210 people who had died of this date.
It appears that the VA study left out two-thirds of the data.Read the entire article | Email this article

Stay-at-home orders have not reduced deaths from Covid-19 vs states using social distancing only
States that have stay-at-home lockdown orders do not have fewer cases of Covid-19 per million people and do not have fewer deaths from Covid-19 per million people than states that used only social distancing according to political scientist Wilfred Reilly.
“the social-distancing states… [plus South Carolina] experienced 663 fewer cases per million and 42 fewer deaths per million on average than the lockdown states [minus New York],” notes Reilly.Read the entire article | Email this article

Is Social Distancing Working for reducing Covid-19 deaths? Knut Wittkowski PhD, DSc
Here are video highlights from an interview that Del Bigtree of The Highwire did with biostatistician and epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski, PhD, DSc, who was Head of Rockefeller University’s Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design, about whether social distancing will reduce the number of deaths from coronavirus, Covid-19.
Knut Wittkowski says, no, social distancing will not reduce the number of deaths from Covid-19, and will probably increase the number of people who will die from the virus.
He says there is no evidence anywhere in the world that this is true because the number of deaths had already peaked before social distancing was instituted.Read the entire article | Email this article

COVID-19: Far fewer will die than previously predicted according to epidemiologist
UK epidemiologist Neil Ferguson who predicted that 500,000 people in the UK would die from COVID-19, drastically reduced his estimate to 20,000 or less — a 25-fold reduction or more—according to an article on the DailyWire.com.
He also predicted that 2.2 million people in the US would die from COVID-19, which also would be a dramatical overestimate.Read the entire article | Email this article

Hydroxychloroquine + azithromycin eliminated COVID-19 virus in 95% of patients in 6 days
Hydroxychloroquine (200 mg three times a day) eliminated the coronavirus COVID-19 in 75% of patients after 6 days, while hydroxychloroquine plus the antibiotic azithromycin (500 mg on day 1 followed by 250 mg per day for the next four days) eliminated the virus in 95% of patients after 6 days according to a study done by French biologist and Infectious Disease Specialist, Prof. Didier Raoult, MD, PhD as noted in an article on Medscape.Read the entire article | Email this article

Niacin lowers risk of heart attack or dying from a heart attack by an average of 25%
Niacin lowers risk of stroke by an average of 26%
Niacin raises HDL by an average of 20%
Niacin lowers LDL by an average of 16%
Niacin lowers triglycerides by an average of 20%
Niacin lowers C-reactive protein (CPR) by an average of 24%
Extended-release niacin (1500 to 2000 mg per day) lowers levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) by an average of 24% in people starting with higher levels of Lp(a)—starting levels of 92 mg/dL versus 54 mg/dL—according to a study from Russia.
Elevated levels of C-reative protein—above 2 mg/dL—are associated with an increased risk of heart and stroke as noted by the Mayo Clinic.
Note: I prefer immediate-release niacin to extended-release niacin. In the 1980’s there were reports of some liver problems with extended-release niacin, and earlier studies showing benefits of niacin used immediate-release niacin, not extended-release.Read the entire article | Email this article

CHOLESTEROL & HEART ATTACK RISK
Elevate cholesterol has almost nothing to do with heart attack risk notes Prof. Timothy Noakes
“There is so much evidence to show that it is not cholesterol [that increases heart attack risk],” notes Prof. Timothy Noakes, MD, DSc, PhD in an interview that he did on a Fat & Furious podcast.
“Cholesterol is a terribly poor predictor of heart attack risk.”

Is it possible that Michael Jackson was suffering from mercury toxicity from skin-lightening creams?
Is it possible that Michael Jackson was suffering from mercury toxicity when he died?
Yes, I think so.
Here’s why I say this.
He had terrible insomnia and was very thin, both of which are symptoms of mercury toxicity.
Where could the mercury have come from?
The FDA limits the amount of mercury in cosmetic products to 1 ppm, however, a study of 549 skin-lightening products found that 3.3% of skin-lightening creams purchased in the US were found to contain 1000 ppm mercury.

People who ate nuts 7-times or more per week were 20% less likely to die during follow-up
People who ate nuts were 7% to 20% less likely to die during follow-up compared to people who did not eat nuts according to a study looking at data from 76,464 women in the Nurses’ Health Study (1980-2010) and 42,498 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2010).
Comparing those who ate nuts to those who did not, they found a:
- 7% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts less than once per week
- 11% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts once (1) per week
- 13% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 2-4 times per week
- 15% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 5-6 times per week
- 20% lower risk of dying in those who ate nuts 7 or more times per week
“In two large, independent cohorts of nurses and other health professionals, the frequency of nut consumption was inversely associated with total and cause-specific mortality, independently of other predictors of death,” the authors of the study concluded.Read the entire article | Email this article
