Vitamin D Deficiency May Explain Why Black People Have Higher COVID Mortality Rates

An MIT study has found that race plays a major role, as much as age and one’s preexisting conditions, in a COVID-19 patient’s chance of survival. Apparently, black people have a higher death rate.

CBS Boston quotes the study author thus: “We controlled for that share of the population that has health insurance, diabetes, smoking, obesity. So, it’s got to be something that’s not that. It could be something like the quality of the insurance or the quality of the health care system.” In other words, they aren’t saying it overtly, but I think it is implied that the insurance and health care systems might be “racist,”  as a reference to “systemic racism” that we’ve been hearing about in the news these days.

But there is a good explanation in terms of certain dietary factors. Like lack of vitamin D is a good explanation, in my opinion. Northwestern University researchers have found that those COVID-19 patients with severe vitamin D deficiency have much higher COVID mortality rates.

Now, some people have criticized that study citing that mainly age is the relevant factor for COVID-19 fatality rates. A high percentage of the COVID-19 deaths are taking place in nursing homes. But the vitamin D deficiency theory makes sense to me given that COVID-19 involves the respiratory tract and fluid buildup in the lungs. According to this article published at NIH, “Vitamin D appears capable of inhibiting pulmonary inflammatory responses while enhancing innate defence mechanisms against respiratory pathogens.”

This article on The Lancet backs up those findings regarding vitamin D deficiency and COVID, citing additional studies, and it mentions that “black and minority ethnic people—who are more likely to have vitamin D deficiency because they have darker skin—seem to be worse affected than white people by COVID-19.”

This study on NIH states: “Blacks and Hispanics consistently manifest lower serum concentrations of 25(OH)D than non-Hispanic whites [8–12], primarily because increased skin pigmentation inhibits cutaneous synthesis of cholecalciferol, the metabolic precursor to 25(OH)D [13]. This has led many investigators to conclude that blacks and Hispanics are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency than whites [8–12], and as a result, may also have increased risk of developing associated chronic disease conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer [14, 15].” (And COVID-19?)

For some reason it really seems to be difficult to get mainstream medical practitioners, researchers and journalists to take the importance of nutrition (and malnutrition) seriously. It has been my own personal experience that mainstream doctors are either overly (and irrationally) faithful in the pharmaceutical industry or they are just dishonestly connected to those companies, or both.

Note how the government “public health experts” such as Dr. Fauci and our state officials rarely if ever even mention the importance of being nutritionally fit to defend against COVID-19 or any other type of disease including the flu.

But I think that the initial MIT researchers I mentioned at the top in their not even considering nutritional deficiencies and instead wanting to look at the insurance or health care systems, tells us something.

Joe Biden and Alzheimer’s

It seems that a lot of people are in denial regarding Joe Biden’s cognitive decline. Now, I’m not a doctor, but…c’mon. Have you heard him?

Perhaps people have been voting for him and supporting him to be the Democrat’s presidential nominee in 2020 because they know that Party leaders will replace him with someone else. They have to replace him, otherwise, why would they keep an Alzheimer’s sufferer as their nominee?

And I’m not a supporter of Democrats or Republicans. I’ve been voting for or supporting libertarians or independents (or no one) for years now. I really don’t care who the major parties’ nominees will be.

But Biden’s many, many gaffes and incoherent utterances over the past few years show that he probably does have Alzheimer’s disease. Caitlin Johnstone prepared this fascinating post including many videos with one example after another showing Biden’s decline, not just in memory but in judgment. Maybe many people just don’t know about this, or the media have been shielding the public from the truth about Biden.

I don’t want to post videos here, so you can go to that post if you want to see all those examples. If you listen to talk radio, then you have probably already heard many of the clips. If you only get news and discussion from CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, then you probably haven’t heard most of them.

And I have further evidence that Biden has Alzheimer’s, because my father had Alzheimer’s up to his death. As I have mentioned here before, I believe that my own father’s Alzheimer’s disease was first made possible by his taking a statin drug (that’s supposedly for cholesterol). Apparently Joe Biden takes a statin drug.

So this is what I have concluded how that had happened. And I could be wrong, of course. In 2013 my father had two strokes, the second one being more serious. And at that time the doctors found an arterial blockage, that was located in a difficult area so surgery would have been too risky, so they decided to leave it alone and hope for the best.

Based on what I have learned, the arterial blockage slows the blood flow and reduces the oxygen levels and nutrients needed by the brain for normal cognitive functioning.

And then I heard that statin drugs were found (.pdf) to deplete some specific nutrients, specifically coenzyme Q10 and it inhibits the synthesis of vitamin K2. (Click on that .pdf, or see “Statins stimulate atherosclerosis and heart failure: pharmacological mechanisms” at this link. And see this article by Dr. Mercola.) I was looking at the vitamin K2 specifically. Vitamin K2 is very important toward the efficient distribution of calcium to where we need it, that being the bones.

And vitamin K2 is important in preventing calcium maldistribution, preventing calcium from being distributed to where we don’t want it, the arteries or heart, and so on. If we don’t get enough vitamin K2, then our calcium could build up in the arteries or heart, called calcifications.

And so my conclusion was that the statin drug my father was taking probably depleted the important coenzyme Q10 and especially interfered with his vitamin K2 which then caused calcium buildup and his arterial blockage, the strokes, and his Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline. Again, the cognitive decline is related to the arterial blockage, which slowed down the oxygen and nutrients getting to his brain which needs the oxygen and nutrients for normal cognitive functioning, including memory.

Based on what I have read over the years, I think that many pharmaceutical drugs have those terrible kinds of side effects, depleting nutrients and interfering with the natural processes and causing dysfunction.

So I think that Joe Biden has Alzheimer’s and I especially think so given that he’s taking the statin drug. It’s not just because of age, in my opinion.

Not that it matters much. Because to me what matters is Biden’s being a warmonger, a drug war fascist and an asset “forfeiture” police-statist, among other terrible things. Biden is one of the “worst of the worst,” and he’s been in government his whole adult life. Is it time for him to retire?

COVID Corruption

This COVID stuff is being exploited by very bad people for ends not having anything to do with protecting the health and safety of the people.

As many people are already noticing, the hysterical 24/7 COVID propaganda is very similar to the post-9/11 24/7 propaganda, which contributed much to the advancing police state, and the surveillance state. And now we have hysterical propaganda and the advance of the medical and vaccine police state.

And it’s all a fraud. Try not to be influenced by the hysteria and fear-mongering.

What is the reality of the situation? Well, we know from recent studies, Stanford and University of Miami, that the COVID-19 coronavirus is much more widespread than previously thought, and the studies have shown that the actual infection fatality rate is just about .1%. That’s a tenth of one percent, which means it’s as serious as the seasonal flu.

Even the infectious bureaucrat Dr. Death, a.k.a. Dr. Fauci, wrote way back on February 28th that the fatality rate will probably turn out to be well less than 1%.

As you have already heard, most people who have the virus don’t even know it and have no symptoms, or if they do have symptoms they are mild symptoms.

The worry over people being “carriers” without knowing it is unfounded, given that there has been no worry that carriers of the flu virus each season can pass it on to others and cause deaths. Seasonal influenza kills tens of thousands of people each season in the U.S.

And now that some states have been reopening, we are seeing that the infection rate really is more widespread, but the death rate continues to fall, as is the case in Georgia.

So all the hysteria and panic over the past two months has been over nothing! There has never been any legitimate reason to order businesses closed in violation of the Constitution, and cancel events, concerts, ball games, make people stay “6 feet away,” wear masks, and all the other fascist mandates and restrictions.

What the governors and mayors have been doing to us has been criminal, as this is turning out to be a deliberate scheme, for corrupt reasons, for power grabs and for grabbing tax-funded “stimulus” money and much higher Medicare reimbursements.

Especially given that the scammers’ modeling has been wrong, modeling on which the national fascist lockdown has been based.

Therefore, there’s no point to doing all the testing, invasive “contact tracing” and tracking of people like in dystopian China.

So to summarize in some way what I have mentioned here previously, first we have the CDC changing its guidelines, in which “laboratory confirmation” of COVID-19 is not necessary, the feds encouraging doctors, hospitals and medical examiners to count non-COVID-19 deaths as “COVID-19” deaths, in order to artificially raise the COVID death count.

That is, if someone died from a heart attack or heart disease or kidney disease, or from a fall, that’s still counted as a “COVID” death, whether or not the person actually happened to test positive for coronavirus or was never even tested!

The states are following those new guidelines to publish significantly incorrect and fraudulent COVID death numbers as well. In Massachusetts, according to the Boston Globe, “Officials are now classifying as infected those who were likely stricken by the virus but did not have the diagnosis confirmed through a laboratory test,” as encouraged by the corrupt and dishonest CDC.

The Glob article also mentions that inflating the infection numbers is also toward “allocation of resources,” i.e. the states getting those huge federal stimulus checks.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and his fellow bureaucrats are extremely greedy, given that they are looking for federal handouts while Massachusetts already has a $3.5 billion “rainy day fund”!

The controversial Project Veritas interviewed New York funeral home directors who claimed that hospitals or medical examiners are putting “COVID” on death certificates as the cause of death, regardless of whether the person actually had the disease. “They’re writing COVID on all the death certificates…”

So this whole thing is just a corrupt scam. Those governors are real psychopaths, given what they are willing to inflict on millions of innocent people!

Also in New York, Gov. Cuomo has been ordering nursing homes to admit people known to have COVID-19 or tested positive for the virus, which obviously would be a threat to the other nursing home residents. The murderous Cuomo is either very stupid and incompetent or he’s intentionally wanting to contribute to higher COVID death counts, or both.

Besides the corruption and criminality, there is also incompetence, such as doctors who do not understand the dangerous impact that ventilators could have. Investigative researcher Jon Rappoport wrote a recent post on these issues, including:

A close and trusted researcher has told me the following: many older people live with chronically low oxygen levels. This may not be ideal, but they survive.

However, when such people arrive at hospitals, doctors can misinterpret the oxygen levels, believing these are dire emergency situations—and therefore, they put the patients on ventilators. With too much pressure, the result can be lung damage and death.

So, as I mentioned in an earlier post regarding the NIH’s warning about possible ventilator problems, one issue is too much oxygen being forced into the lungs.

And there could also be the problem of oxygen deprivation, as Rappoport notes.

And of course there is the financial issue, as noted above. Rappoprt continues:

Insurance money. In a phone interview, physician and Minnesota state senator, Scott Jensen, told me that hospitals, who are suffering very deep financial losses, are incentivized by Medicare to label as many patients as possible “COVID-19,” and to put them on ventilators.

Jensen stated that a patient on Medicare, diagnosed with straight pneumonia, would bring a $4600 payment to the hospital. The same patient, labeled “COVID-19 pneumonia,” would bring $13,000. And if that patient is put on a ventilator: $39,000.

Result? Patients unnecessarily put on ventilators. With the wrong protocol, harm and death could result.

Hospitals are paid more in Medicare funds for each confirmed or “presumed” coronavirus patient, as noted above with the CDC’s changed guidelines!

So, based on the actual truth, facts and empirical data, this virus has been at the same level of seriousness as a cold or the seasonal flu as I mentioned at the top. But COVID has been intentionally exaggerated by those government bureaucrats and the “news journalists” in the media, and not just for government handouts and social control but for other ulterior purposes.

The truth is, the “liberal” bureaucrats’ fascist agenda is rearing its ugly head now.

Besides the corruption, power trips and greed with bureaucrats and their crony cohorts, now we have the developing dystopian “contact tracing” stasi, in which bureaucrats are creating new agencies with people who love being invasive into other people private lives.

The “contact tracing” stasi want to know whom you have been with, your associations, all those aspects of your life that are none of their damn business!

Gov. Charlie Baker wants “contact tracing,” to slow the spread or even stop COVID-19. He wants these draconian policies until a vaccine is ready.

But what about the flu that kills tens of thousands in the U.S. each season? Right.

Therefore, this scheme has no legitimate or practical purpose other than to seize away whatever privacy and security people have in their lives.

Fascist California Gov. Gavin Newsom wants an “army” of contact tracers. Ack. The Clinton Foundation wants to create a national contact tracing force, using AmeriCorps. Ack!

What is this, an Alfred Hitchcock movie?

So, there is something more devious going on. Otherwise, why can’t the “officials” just protect the most vulnerable, the elderly, obese, diabetics and others with underlying serious health conditions, and leave the rest of us the hell alone?!

One thing I have noticed is that this COVID fiasco seems to have been preceded by Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms censoring alternative nutrition and health information.

That is relevant, given the obsession with not letting us have our freedom back “until we have a COVID vaccine” (which can be hazardous!) that some people including Bill Gates want to mandate on ALL people all over the world.

Yes, much of this crap is in devout service to the … pharmaceutical companies! (What a shock, I know.) And their damn vaccines.

Previous to this possibly planned COVID coronavirus situation, Google and Facebook had already been censoring health and nutrition websites and links from Facebook or Twitter pages or feeds.

For instance, Selfhack.com had a lengthy article on Google’s horrific censorship of health websites. It notes that Google’s recent policy updates have Google “penalizing every single site that they decided is not ‘mainstream’ enough, no matter how good their science is.”

You can check it out for yourself: type any health topic in Google, and look at what comes up in the first 10 results. WebMD, Healthline, and some hospitals usually. Then type it in Bing: you’ll see that Bing gives better and more relevant results every time.

Literally every health website has been penalized that is not affiliated with mainstream hospitals or institutions (such as the Mayo or Cleveland clinic), or that is not WebMD or Healthline (the 2 largest sites).

Selfhacked’s November, 2019 article says that mainstream health websites such as Healthline and WebMD mainly use sources from each other’s content and hospitals and government institutions, but not from peer-reviewed scientific articles.

I’ve actually interviewed several people who used to write for Healthline. They would frequently write about extremely serious and complex medical topics, such as cancer. I asked these people if they would be interested in writing a SelfHacked article. They all replied similarly, to the effect of: “oh, I don’t have the necessary background for that. Healthline articles are easy to write — I wouldn’t be qualified to write SelfHacked articles.”

With Google, says Selfhacked, it apparently doesn’t want to give you results of what you’re looking for, but what it wants you to see, based more on ideology.

And Dr. Joseph Mercola, who has had perhaps the most popular and most visited health-related website, also got his search results smashed by Google’s June, 2019 update, as he wrote in this November, 2019 article. Mercola refers to Healthline and WebMD as “Google-trusted” health websites, “both of which promote health-harming drugs and junk food with their articles.”

Mercola refers to the crony wheeling and dealing going on with Healthline and WebMD and the makers of junk food and pharmaceutical companies.

Another popular health website that also got whacked by Google, GreenMedInfo.com, also wrote about Google’s censorship of non-“mainstream” health websites. Its founder, Sayer Ji, seemed to touch on something that’s relevant to the current situation in his June, 2019 article writing,

Mercola.com has been a source of whistle-blowing information about Big Pharma and Big Tech collusion for decades, so it is no surprise why Google would take this action against his platform, and similar ones. In fact, signs of the coming purge came back in 2016, when GlaxoSmithKline signed a $715 million contract to partner with Google, and with increasing partnerships with pharmaceutical companies in 2019 like Sanofi.  Google’s parent company Alphabet is heavily invested in a vaccine company,Vaccitech, founded by scientists at Oxford University. Google, it appears, has become a pay-to-play operation, and contains a specific sociopolitical and economic agenda that is built directly into its search algorithms.

Besides Google’s shenanigans, Facebook announced in early 2019 in response to Rep. Adam Schiff that it may remove “anti-vaccine conspiracy theory” content from its platform. And then it announced that it would make alternative vaccine information harder to find, calling it “misinformation.”

But, as Sharyl Attkisson has documented, and Dr. Mercola as well,  there are many studies now which show the harm of vaccines.

It seems to me that the censorship of nutrition and alternative, non-mainstream (i.e. more honest, factual and science-based) health information has preceded this ongoing COVID-19 “crisis” for some reason.

So, I don’t know whether the bureaucrats in charge are imposing business closures and job losses, cancelling events and ball games, imposing house arrest of the masses, might be to do with an attempt to influence the 2020 Presidential election, an attempt to impose socialism, or crony relations with Big Pharma, or just a lust for power. Perhaps all of the above?

Whatever the case, the bureaucrats are sick, sick deranged psychopaths, that’s for sure. Not only are they not protecting us, they are destroying our civil liberties, our livelihoods, our health, our privacy, and our society.

Governors Confused on What Is “Essential” During their Illegal Lockdowns

Among the many problems this whole societal shutdown has been causing me personally is the closing down of my local GNC, where I get a particular non-GNC brand name supplement that I haven’t been able to get anywhere else. And I don’t want to order things like supplements online and have them delivered! This store among many others were closed down because of being called “non-essential.” Maybe “non-essential” to you, fascist governor, but essential to ME!

You see, these ignorant moron politicians see liquor stores as “essential” so that is why those stores get to stay open.

So, nutrition=”non-essential,” while non-nutrition=”essential”! Only in what is becoming a third-world America, sadly.

Wall Street Crashing Due to Irrational Coronavirus Panic and Hysteria

The totally unnecessary panic and hysteria over the coronavirus outbreak is now causing a week-long crash on Wall Street. And yes it is hysteria, because there’s no reason for it. It is irrational what’s going on now. As Bob Newhart would say, “Stop it!”

But I am somewhat suspicious of the motives of various government officials who are stirring up the unnecessary panic, as well as the “news” media. On the media’s part, many of the reporters and news anchors do not seem to have the same kind of investigative thinking skills they used to have. They seem to merely repeat whatever comes from CDC officials, without question.

And then there are some others out there who are not so ignorant, and are knowingly repeating panicky propaganda, on behalf of certain political agenda, in my opinion. We saw throughout the “Trump-Russia collusions” investigation and the Mueller report how media promoted that false narrative, which as Glenn Greenwald reported, was totally debunked by the Mueller report’s conclusions.

The latest as far as coronavirus is concerned is that a person in California has allegedly tested positive for the virus, but was not traveling to places such as China or had had any close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus. (Although I am suspicious whether the person actually has the coronavirus.) But the “news” is reporting that this is the first known case in which the virus is beginning to spread (like in an uncontrolled way).

But, as one of my favorite blogs, Target Liberty, quotes the Washington Post, the person in question lives in an area near “Travis Air Force Base, where hundreds of Americans repatriated from China, and others brought home from the Diamond Princess Cruise ship have been kept in quarantine. Many of them have been released.” But I am not hearing ANY of the newscasters reporting this entirely relevant fact! So we DO have evidence as far as how the person in California may have gotten the virus! But the media are not reporting those aspects of the case.

Target Liberty also reports that the CDC’s director of National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the one who has been issuing very dire, hysterical warnings about the coronavirus, is the sister of Rod Rosenstein, one of the senior DOJ officials who signed fraudulent FISA applications to spy on the Trump campaign. So is Nancy as corrupt as her awful brother? Just asking.

Messonnier is also on the board of directors of “Vaccinate Your Family,” which, according to that Target Liberty post, gets some of its funding from Merck, GlaxoSmithKlein, Pfizer, and Sanofi. (So, something smells rotten in Denmark, if you ask me.)

Another issue with the hysteria is that deaths among those with the coronavirus remain at roughly 2%, which is not high. As I have already referred to here, Jon Rappoport pointed out that China has high pollution and the respiratory systems of the Chinese people are already compromised. Coronavirus affects the respiratory system in the same way that the flu does. (But there doesn’t seem to be the same kind of panic over the flu now, is there?)

By the way, Jon Rappoport’s most recent posts on coronavirus are extremely informative.

Also what’s not really being mentioned by “news” outlets are just who exactly is dying as a result of infection of coronavirus. It’s generally the same case as with the flu: elderly people and those with preexisting conditions such as diabetes or other diseases they have already been battling. Such situations weakens people’s immune systems. And also especially vulnerable are those who are smokers, boozers, drug addicts, and obese people.

But by not reiterating those important aspects of this situation, including the low rate of deaths among those testing positive for coronavirus at 2%, the “news” reporters are reinforcing the false narrative that the coronavirus is as deadly as Ebola and that everybody needs to worry, be hysterical, stay in and not go about their regular activities and PANIC!

And because of this not only is there a stock market “sell-off,” but it looks like Wall Street is continuing to tank similarly to 2008! And there’s no reason for this.

I heard a financial commentator on the radio saying that people should calm down, and don’t sell your stocks unless you need the money right now. People need to be patient.

So, are the media furthering this false narrative deliberately?

Target Liberty, by the way, also has a post on how some people who hate Donald Trump are using the coronavirus outbreak as a way to test Trump’s ability to deal with this crisis, pointing out how the “news” people of CNN in particular are either deliberately dispensing misinformation or just ignorantly getting facts wrong. (Just to be clear, I am not a Trump supporter, as I hove been supportive of the Libertarian Party, and have already mentioned here Jacob Hornberger.)

And given how much the Trump haters really do hate Trump, some of them have made it clear that they hope the economy gets bad by the election so that Trump is blamed for it and doesn’t get reelected. These are truly sick people. And some of them think that way, even though they have 401Ks and investments that are now going downhill this week because of the coronavirus hysterical sell-off.

What the media people really ought to do is continuously remind people how to better protect themselves from the coronavirus (as well as the flu or other contagious diseases), and how to defend themselves from the effects of coronavirus if they get it. Such advice would include washing your hands thoroughly and not touching your nose or face with your fingers after touching other common objects like doorknobs, and to take Vitamin D as well as Vitamin C and Zinc. And to not engage in self-destructive habits such as smoking or boozing, doing drugs, and eating badly and being obese. Also, generally keep oneself in good health to prevent diabetes and other diseases in the first place. Elderly people especially have reason to take good care of themselves, because their immune systems are weaker than younger people.

Unnecessary Panic Over the “Corona” Virus?

I wanted to address the media’s fear mongering and panic with the new “corona virus,” and China’s overdoing it with the closing down of whole cities out of hysteria and panic. But I spent more time on my previous post than I had planned. So I will make this more brief.

Over the past several years I have come to see just how the mainstream news media have become mostly repeaters of official government press releases. It’s mainly propaganda, as we have seen and continue to see with the coverage of the 2016 election-Russia investigation and this impeachment farce. The media are the same with medical issues, in their being spokespeople for the pharmaceutical companies.

So, I really want to link to Jon Rappoport’s two recent posts that address these issues, on the latest virus, the “corona” virus. Those two posts are: China virus epidemic – the Gong Show on roller skates, and on the man who mushed the SARS dud now pushing new Chinese virus. Very good information and insight, in my opinion.

He makes reference to how in the past such as with SARS the media would not disclose that many cases of “SARS” were really patients with flu-like symptoms but who did not test positive for the “SARS” virus.

Rappoport brings up how medical and government officials don’t seem to want to look at an area’s sanitation and water systems, which are very important in these issues. There are also areas of malnutrition, in which a common problem is the compromised immune systems of many in the population, in which toxic vaccines and other pharmaceutical drugs are killing them.

But, “THE VIRUS” is what needs to be obsessed with. In these “epidemics,” many of those suffering don’t actually test positive for the virus in question. They have flu-like symptoms. And one reason some of the people with the sicknesses actually die — and I did hear a newscaster mention this, I couldn’t believe a little truth was told — is because those people already had other serious medical conditions.

So, people with medical conditions should be as well-nourished as possible, for prevention.

But in China, a country with an ultra-authoritarian government that already keeps the masses in fear of the regime with the “social credit score,” etc., the government is closing down whole cities? Those rulers are even worse control freaks than the power-addicted people in Washington.

Faux Healthcare vs. Nutrition; And, How Clean Is Too Clean?

Some interesting articles from Mercola. First, there will be a referendum in Maine on March 3rd for the people of Maine to overturn a new law that mandates vaccines to be forced on people involuntarily, by revoking religious and philosophical or personal belief exemptions. Too bad the people have to go to the ballot box to protect their natural right to not be assaulted and to protect their right of freedom of thought and conscience and to protect their right to decide for themselves what medical procedures, drugs or other acts of alleged prevention to voluntarily have.

Good ol’ fascism, and based on ignorance and hysteria, no less. In Seattle, by the way, the “officials” have mandated that school kids must get vaccinated or else don’t come back to school. Really? Hmm. Remind me not to relocate to Seattle any time soon. (Have you heard of “unschooling“? They could use that up there.)

Frankly, there’s too much of a dangerous government-pharmaceutical-media complex, and a lot of misinformation is out there based on myths and hysteria. I’ve posted enough on this blog regarding the vaccine issue (just click on the “vaccine” tag or category at the bottom of this post to read my previous posts on vaccines), and I’m starting to get sick of this.

Incidentally, Jon Rappoport has a new post on vaccines, with some important insight and brilliant analysis as usual. And in another recent post, he discusses the brainwashing of the “medical cartel,” as well as of the media who don’t want to report on disclosures that had been leaked from insiders.

I especially liked Rappoport stating, “And remember this: no amount of vaccines is going to solve tremendously sub-standard childhood nutrition.” And, “There is no substitute for natural immunity derived from good nutrition.” You betcha.

The other article on Mercola is regarding people being too clean, with personal care products and household cleaning products that are disinfecting away our normal “good” bacteria. Perhaps one reason why so many children are getting sick isn’t because they aren’t getting vaccines, or are over-vaccinated, but because they are too clean. (And perhaps that’s a reason why ultra-clean-freak Felix Unger seemed to be so sick!)

The timing of this article is interesting, because I have recently been going through a process of changing some of my own cleaning habits, mainly in the soaps category. I had been using Dial soap that has the controversial anti-bacterial ingredient(s) and I have switched to Ivory for now. I had also been using Aveeno moisturizing bar but they recently changed their ingredients for the worse, so I have bought a Trader Joe”s oatmeal-based soap but haven’t used it yet. It gets good reviews online.

Bottom line from the Mercola article: washing is a good idea obviously, but don’t overwash so you can prevent possibly causing a bacterial “resistance.” The article notes that “germ vigilance is required. Cuts, for example, need to be properly cleaned, and disinfecting food preparation areas is a good idea. Medical facilities also need to be vigilant about cleanliness and disinfection. In our day-to-day lives, however, we should not go overboard.”

Vaccines and Junk Foods vs. Nutrition

There is another article on the ineffectiveness of vaccines, by Arjun Walia of the Collective Evolution website, this one regarding the whooping cough vaccine. Walia tells how a school in Houston, Texas had to close because of a whooping cough outbreak among students and staff. It has not been disclosed how many kids were affected, but supposedly 100% of the students had been vaccinated.

Some of the kids had to be hospitalized. So I ask, did the vaccine (or other vaccines they may have received, such as MMR) actually weaken their immune systems to make them vulnerable to contracting whooping cough (or measles, or the flu, etc.)? And there are other factors as well when it comes to kids’ (and adults) health, such as prescription drugs, over-the-counter meds and processed foods.

The article goes into detail on the several studies on what appears to be negative effects of these vaccines. In my opinion, there are a lot of superstitious people with a blind faith in vaccines. But a lot of kids are just plain malnourished, in my opinion. And I’m saying that because we’re constantly hearing about high obesity rates in kids — the junk foods and processed foods that parents give the kids affect their general health. I can see how a lot of the chemicals contained in the processed and junk foods can interfere with the digestion process, so the nutrients they do get in the nutritious foods they eat are not getting absorbed. That is what I have concluded, based on my own experience as I look back at my poor eating habits in my earlier years, and based on other articles I’ve read.

And I see the multiple vaccines they are being given (numbering like 60 vaccine doses by age 6!) are not only interfering with the kids’ brain development but other parts of their biological development as well. When I was a kid, we only had maybe a total of 4 or 5 vaccine shots. It is obscene now. I feel for the kids.

The bottom line is, as long as the kids are well nourished and don’t consume those awful foods with the chemicals then their immune systems will be in better shape to fight whatever germs, bacteria and viruses they are exposed to in their developing years. In fact, some people who are vaccine skeptics make the point that it wasn’t vaccines that caused a decline in diseases but progress in nutrition, sanitation, clean water, and hygiene. (See Mercola on that, and Learn the Risks.)

And I know some people are saying, “Sure, kids need nutritious food, but let them have some snacks and tasty treats as well,” and so on. But I am saying that the synthetic chemicals in those junk foods interfere with the digestion of important nutrients and thus the eater of the junk foods is less nourished than he or she would otherwise be. Now, do I have real scientific proof to back up that assertion? Right now, I’m not going to spend time on the Internet trying to find that. And I’ll bet it hasn’t been studied enough. But, I do have my own conclusions that I can make from my own experiences.

So these days not only is Big Pharma a problem but Big Agra as well.

But why do we rarely hear about the importance of nutrition from the medical community? instead the practitioners and schools are constantly pushing vaccines and pharmaceutical drugs. In addition to all that, many of the TV shows kids watch are sponsored by the makers of those terrible junk foods and processed foods. Sadly, the young parents these days are clueless, as many of the young parents don’t even know how to take better care of themselves, let alone children!
