With COVID Hysteria, “Something Is Rotten in the State of Denmark.”

How long is this COVID situation going to last? And the government-ordered shutdown of businesses and job-losses?

Those “public servants,” ordering the people to close down and stay at home, are causing an economic collapse and devastation all over the country. All the increased impoverishment, despair, and now hunger with long lines at the food banks, will cause many more illnesses and deaths than whatever number of COVID-19 deaths that may have been prevented!

And the media are shameful in their fear-mongering right along with the “public servants” causing such panic and destruction. I was talking to my 86-year-old mother on the phone yesterday and she’s definitely affected by what I consider to be non-stop propaganda on the television. I think she watches too much TV but don’t tell I said that.

The undue panic that government bureaucrats and media have been causing will cause a mental health crisis as well as an economic crisis, if this goes on any longer.

I saw some good recent articles that people should read with more clear information on the COVID panic, including The 5 dubious pillars of the Covid-19 panic narrative on Medium, and Things about COVID-19 that make you go, “Hmmm” on Target Liberty.

So first I have some questions about the manufacturers such as the fashion and apparel companies now making face masks, and Ford, GM and Airbus now making ventilators, which those companies are not used to making.

Will the makers of the face masks be putting the masks through some kind of final inspections to guarantee they are free of contaminants or viruses? And as I saw mentioned on another blog, what exactly are the masks treated with, some kind of chemical decontamination process? That people might be directly breathing in?

And by the way, this article on GreenMedInfo tells us that wearing those face masks might not actually protect you from viruses, and may even be counterproductive. And that’s according to the World Health Organization! So government “public servants” really shouldn’t be making them mandatory!

And the ventilators? Will they be inspected before being sent to the hospitals? (I assume the ones in use now are already inspected!) Will these new ones be checked for possible bacteria?

According to the National Institutes for Health (that Jon Rappoport quotes from in this informative post),

One of the most serious and common risks of being on a ventilator is pneumonia. The breathing tube that’s put in your airway can allow bacteria to enter your lungs. As a result, you may develop ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP).

The breathing tube also makes it hard for you to cough. Coughing helps clear your airways of lung irritants that can cause infections.

VAP is a major concern for people using ventilators because they’re often already very sick. Pneumonia may make it harder to treat their other disease or condition.

VAP is treated with antibiotics. You may need special antibiotics if the VAP is caused by bacteria that are resistant to standard treatment.

Another risk of being on a ventilator is a sinus infection.

Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for other problems, such as:

*Pneumothorax (noo-mo-THOR-aks). This is a condition in which air leaks out of the lungs and into the space between the lungs and the chest wall. This can cause pain and shortness of breath, and it may cause one or both lungs to collapse.
*Lung damage. Pushing air into the lungs with too much pressure can harm the lungs.
*Oxygen toxicity. High levels of oxygen can damage the lungs.These problems may occur because of the forced airflow or high levels of oxygen from the ventilator.

Using a ventilator also can put you at risk for blood clots and serious skin infections. These problems tend to occur in people who have certain diseases and/or who are confined to bed or a wheelchair and must remain in one position for long periods.

Another possible problem is damage to the vocal cords from the breathing tube….

Now, all those possible risks of being on a ventilator. I wonder how many of the “COVID-19” patients, especially in New York, who have been on a ventilator and who died, really may have died of lung damage, oxygen toxicity, or pneumonia as caused by the ventilator itself, in which they wouldn’t have died just from COVID-19 alone. (One New York City ICU doctor has expressed a similar concern.)

In other words, in which the real cause of death was something other than COVID-19.

We now know that the health officials, CDC, etc. are counting as COVID deaths even those deaths that were caused by other illnesses.

Dr. Deborah Birx, one of Trump’s health advisors, has already admitted that they are falsely counting as “COVID deaths” those deaths whose actual cause was the patient’s other preexisting illness, such as heart failure or kidney disease.

Birx stated, according to the Daily Wire: “we are taking a very liberal approach to mortality…If someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that.” In other words, the person really died of heart failure or kidney disease as the real cause of death, but she says that if the person died “with” COVID-19, they are still counting that as a COVID death. (To intentionally drive up the death count? But why, if so?)

Dr. Birx stated, “There are other countries, that if you have a pre-existing condition, and let’s say the virus called you to go to the ICU (intensive care unit) and then have a heart or kidney problem … Some countries are recording that as a kidney issue, or a heart issue, and not a COVID-19 death.”

The CDC guidelines, which that Daily Wire article also quotes from, states, “COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death …”

In other words, the CDC is promoting fraud in the official U.S. COVID-19 death count!

And that obviously includes whatever extra deaths may have been caused by possibly bacteria-laden ventilators.

This whole thing is suspicious to me. The WHOLE thing. It “doesn’t pass the smell test.”

A Study on the Possible Dangers of Mammograms

In more recent years I have become aware of “Big Cancer” and how the whole cancer industry can go overboard in its zeal to over-screen people, exposing healthy people to needless radiation and/or with harmful drugs unnecessarily and because of false positives or otherwise being unwilling to try less harmful treatments. (In other words, the Big Cancer industry makes the drug companies and hospitals a lot of moolah.)

Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo has a new article discussing these important issues, the “hidden dangers” of mammograms that people need to know. He discusses the psychosocial consequences of false positives in screening and false diagnoses, and the risks of low-energy X-rays.

My aunt Louise (not her real name) died in 2008 of breast cancer. She had that previously maybe in the early 2000s and she had the usual conventional establishment-medicine treatments, and got rid of it. Then the cancer returned in 2008 and she died, in her late 60s. I don’t know for sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she had had regular mammograms leading up to getting the cancer in the early 2000s, because she didn’t drink or smoke or do drugs, and I believe she was even a healthy eater.

UPDATE: Now, this is not to say that one ought not get a screening for breast cancer, especially if one notices an abnormality. I just wanted to clarify this. Perhaps there are alternative kinds of tests to have (such as thermography or ultrasound, for instance)? But, if one has had a screening such as a mammogram screening and has been given the all clear, then it probably isn’t necessary to have a subsequent test after that, especially if you take care of yourself. The problem is the cumulative radiological effects of yearly mammograms or even every 10 years.

Researchers Plant Malware in MRI Equipment to Cause False Diagnoses

I’m going to try to write posts here more often, if I can. There have been quite a lot of interesting stories in the news recently that need to be covered. And I also want to continue to write about my personal experiences, especially in the health area.

In the personal area, I don’t want to over-emphasize the magnesium stuff, but it really has been quite a thing with me for the past maybe 4 years or so. I think I will do a point by point summary of what I’ve learned about magnesium and magnesium supplements over the past few years. And also, I have reviewed my recent major post on my experiences with bad doctors and their bad advice and the bad pharmaceutical drugs during the 2000s, and, well, it may be necessary to add a summary of the main points at the top or at the end of that post, and/or do a separate post summarizing all that. It is quite lengthy and covers a lot of events.

In the meantime, I heard this story on the radio, and it was quite shocking. When googling for it, hardly any news outlets seem to have it, although this one from the trade publication for medical device makers “Mass Device” has it. That article does link to a Washington Post article on the story.

The story is that researchers in Israel tested malware in a hospital to intentionally alter MRI images to get radiologists to misdiagnose a cancer or tumor, either with a false positive or a false negative. And it appears that in many cases, the malware actually did just that.

I have a feeling that news media outlets do not seem to be covering this story because of the questionable ethics involved in the carrying out of the study. But the conclusion that MRI testing is vulnerable to malware and that steps need to be taken to prevent false diagnoses, is an important conclusion to be discussed.
