Russian Government To Ban All GMO Food Products To Protect Citizens

Published

on

What was once a taboo topic of conversation has now become so widely discussed that pretty well the entire world seems to have developed an opinion about it. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have entered the mainstream vernacular so thoroughly that an entire country has publicly stated their stance on and intended action plan for the agricultural method.

At an international conference on biotechnology Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Arkady Dvorkovich, announced that the country will be eliminating the production of genetically modified food:

As far as genetically-modified organisms are concerned, we have made decision not to use any GMO in food productions…. This is not a simple issue, we must do very thorough work on division on these spheres and form a legal base on this foundation.

This decision goes hand in hand with an earlier ruling the country announced in April of 2014, when Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev stated that the country would no longer import GMO products.

The ban is set to come into effect fully by mid 2017, when all products that could come into contact with the environment will need to be registered with the government. The goal is to eventually create an agricultural landscape in which farmers will be able produce natural, unaltered crops in abundance.

This decision only seems logical for Russia, which as a whole has already decreased from 10% to 0.01% in terms of the total share of GMO food within the industry over the past 10 years. According to GMwatch.org, there are only 57 registered food products in the country that contain GMO ingredients, a staggering difference to North America, where it seems like 1 out of every 57 products contain GMOs. (That of course is not an actual statistic, and just a figure of speech.)

Bill Gates: We Won’t Go Back To “Normal Until” A Vaccine Has “Gotten Out To The Entire World”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a recent interview, Bill Gates paints the picture that a vaccine that reaches the masses is the only solution to the new coronavirus.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do other methods of intervention for the new coronavirus that have shown great promise continue to be completely ignored, and in some cases ridiculed by mainstream media?

Special Note To Our Readers: We are concerned that our Facebook Page will be deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list. Thank you. 

In a recent interview on Fox News (posted below), Bill Gates stated that “It is fair to say that things won’t go back to truly normal until we have a vaccine that we’ve gotten out to basically the entire world.” It’s no secret that Gates is a huge supporter of vaccines, and is a major player when it comes to developing them. When it comes to the new coronavirus vaccine specifically, he is set to spend billions of dollars to help develop the vaccine, which already seems to be making its way to the public quite fast.

Multiple companies have started clinical trials and testing of potential vaccines for the new coronavirus. Forbes is reporting that the second phase of human trials for a new vaccine from Moderna may start this spring. Moderna’s cofounder and chairman Noubar Afeyan told CNBC that, while it’s challenging to put a timetable on the vaccine’s progress, “We expect [phase two trials] to happen in the spring, perhaps early summer.”

Right now, within the mainstream at least, shining a spotlight on coronavirus vaccines seems to be a priority. But it’s not the only solution that’s been grabbing attention. Other potentials like drugs, and short-term therapies that patients need right now seem to be showing some promise.

For example, Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. The article was written by Dr. Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, a US board-certified anti-aging specialist, from Shanghai, China. Dr. Cheng served in the United States Army as a commissioned officer (Major) and an Army physician. In the s article, he points out how “High-dose intravenous VC has also been successfully used in the treatment of 50 moderate to severe COVID-19 patients in China.” Dr. Cheng has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of China.

According to a recent article by the New York Post, who has also picked up on the topic, “Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C.”

Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, has been prescribing the zinc and hydroxychloroquine combination on patients experiencing severe symptoms associated with COVID-19. In an interview with KABC-TV, Cardillo stated:

“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free, […] So, clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, said in a video interview that a cocktail of Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc Sulfate and Azithromycin are showing phenomenon results with 900 coronavirus patients treated. (source)

In New Jersey, Physicians have called for more autonomy with  Hydroxychloroquine treatment for COVID-19, and In France,  a large study indicates combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin to be effective in treating COVID-19. (source)

On March 22, The New York Times reported that there are at least 69 existing drugs or compounds that might be effective in treating the coronavirus.

Mainstream media seems to be debunking the idea that Hydroxychloroquine can help at all. Here’s an example from CNN.

So, as you can see, this kind of information is making it’s way around the world, so why aren’t these being explored as much as a vaccine? Why does a vaccine seem to be the only solution in this case? These are important questions to ask yourself.

Are People Going To Take The Vaccine?

In the Youtube video above by Fox News, there were approximately 6000 likes, and 9000 dislikes. This is a great example that shows just how hesitant people have become when it comes to trusting big pharmaceutical companies and the vaccines they manufacture. In an article I recently published titled, “Updates on the New Coronavirus Vaccine – Are You Going To Take It? Will It Be Mandatory?” the majority of the comments simply stated “no” after we posted it on Facebook.

This highlights just how much vaccine hesitancy has grown, especially over the past few years. According to organizations like the American Medical Association and the World Health Organization, vaccine hesitancy is one of the biggest threats to global health. Some high-profile speakers at the World Health Organization’s recent Global Vaccine Safety Summit also highlighted the fact that scientists and doctors are now skeptical about vaccines. This is discussed in the introduction of this study (one of many) published in the journal EbioMedicine:

Over the past two decades several vaccine controversies have emerged in various countries, including France, inducing worries about severe adverse effects and eroding confidence in health authorities, experts, and science (Larson et al., 2011). These two dimensions are at the core of the vaccine hesitancy (VH) observed in the general population. VH is defined as delay in acceptance of vaccination, or refusal, or even acceptance with doubts about its safety and benefits, with all these behaviors and attitudes varying according to context, vaccine, and personal profile, despite the availability of vaccine services (Group, 2014,Larson et al., 2014Dubé et al., 2013). VH presents a challenge to physicians who must address their patients’ concerns about vaccines and ensure satisfactory vaccination coverage.

This fact was also echoed by Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project. She is referenced by the authors in the study above. At the WHO conference, she emphasized that safety concerns among people and health professionals seem to be the biggest issue regarding vaccine hesitancy.

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen–and we’re constantly looking at any studies in this space–still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider.

It’s important to ask why people, scientists and physicians are increasingly questioning vaccine safety. Mainstream media labels people and in some cases, science, as “anti-vax.” It is rare to see the concerns being raised with vaccines addressed and discussed, and refuted. Again, all there seems to be is ridicule and hate. At the end of the day, you would think questioning vaccine safety is simply in the best interests of everybody, and that ridicule and making people feel stupid for questioning vaccine safety wouldn’t be a strategy. It just doesn’t seem right, the number of scientists and physicians questioning vaccine safety is growing, these people clearly aren’t stupid.

Scientists and doctors who are creating awareness and explaining why they don’t believe vaccines should be mandatory, or are as safe as they’re marketed to be, receive a large amount of pushback and censorship. Platforms like Collective Evolution are having their social media platform distribution and reach completely cut. Physicians for Informed Consent is another one of many examples. Because of all of the attacks and censorship of our ability to discuss vaccine safety concerns, the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons are suing Rep. Adam Schiff for “censoring vaccine debate.” You can read more about that here.

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves why is all of this happening? If everything was so cut and dry, and black and white, would all of this be manifesting? People are not stupid, and it’s very odd that ‘the powers that be’ continue to ridicule those who are raising concerns about vaccine safety if there were no concerns to be raised Ridicule is never the answer, discussion is.

LA Doctor: COVID-19 Patients Go From ‘Very Ill’ To ‘Symptom-Free’ In 8 To 12 Hours With Hydroxychloroquine & Zinc

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Anthony Cardillo explains the treatment combination he is seeing great success with or severe COVID patients.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is it so tough for humans to agree on what is best for all of us? Do money, control and profits get in the way? Can we perhaps change this habit?

Special Note To Our Readers: We are concerned that our Facebook Page will be deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list. Thank you. 

As vaccine talks continue to emerge as the only ‘cure’ to this pandemic, what’s actually happening on the ground tells a different story. A Los Angeles doctor is reporting remarkable success in treating COVID-19 patients using a specific combination of zinc and hydroxychloroquine – the drug that is controversial regardless of it being inexpensive and readily available.

Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, has been prescribing the zinc and hydroxychloroquine combination on patients experiencing severe symptoms associated with COVID-19. In an interview with KABC-TV, Cardillo stated:

“Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free, […] So, clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

“We have to be cautious and mindful that we don’t prescribe it for patients who have COVID who are well,” he said. “It should be reserved for people who are really sick, in the hospital or at home very sick, who need that medication. Otherwise we’re going to blow through our supply for patients that take it regularly for other disease processes.”

According to Cardillo, it’s the combination of zinc and hydroxychloroquine that does the job. “[Hydrocychloroquine] opens the zinc channel” allowing the zinc to enter the cell, which then “blocks the replication of cellular machinery.”

Cardillo added that the drug should only be prescribed to patients who are on the more severe side when it comes to symptoms. This will help keep the limited supply of the drug ready for those who truly need it.

In New Jersey, Physicians have called for more autonomy in treatment of COVID-19

“An additional group of doctors has contacted a New Jersey State Senator calling on the State to lift restrictions on the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for the therapeutic treatment and prophylactic early treatment of COVID-19. The doctors are echoing Senator Pennacchio’s appeal for New Jersey to accumulate a stockpile of the medication….Pennacchio also wants the State to immediately compile a priority list for the HCQ distribution, ensuring enough medication for those currently prescribed for maladies including Lupus and RA, distribution to patients who have developed COVID-19, and for citizens as a preventive treatment. ‘I am optimistic these measures would decrease the severity and duration of the disease,’ said Pennacchio. ‘The goal must be breaking the pandemic so people can be allowed to return to their normal lives.’ ‘Allow doctors to be doctors. Remove the State’s unnecessary shackles, and let them save lives,’ Pennacchio urged.” (source

In France,  a large study indicates combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin to be effective in treating COVID-19

“In 80 in-patients receiving a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, the team found a clinical improvement in all but one 86 year-old patient who died, and one 74-year old patient still in intensive care unit. The team also found that, by administering hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin, they were able to observe an improvement in all cases, except in one patient who arrived with an advanced form…The team went on to say: ‘Thus, in addition to its direct therapeutic role, this association can play a role in controlling the disease epidemic by limiting the duration of virus shedding, which can last for several weeks in the absence of specific treatment.’” (source)

 Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, said in a video interview that a cocktail of Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc Sulfate and Azithromycin are showing phenomenon results with 900 coronavirus patients treated. (source)

In that video he stated that he believes it’s very important to “get this information out to the American people and to the world.”

Meanwhile, President Trump has also mentioned that the US has stockpiled millions of Hydroxychloroquine pills, and will be distributing them if need be. CNN claims there is no evidence to support the use of this drug for the new coronavirus.

As we have covered in detail, there are multiple more ‘natural’ treatments and prevention measures being used around the world, and they should be noted by people as thus far they show promise. They, of course, have come with a great deal of controversy as mainstream media and health officials attack natural options as hoaxes.

All of this, of course, continues to raise the question: why is there such a strong push for a vaccine, and perhaps a mandated one, when there are other options available now? Why is the world listening to Bill Gates and his calls for further lockdown until the vaccine is ready?

Spring Has Sprung In Sweden With No Coronavirus Quarantine Or Police Enforced Lockdown

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Sweden has not enforced a mandatory quarantine or police enforced lock-down, they are still experiencing deaths as well as infections, but have not enforced policies in place.

  • Reflect On:

    Just because many governments have taken an extreme approach to "flattening the curve" does not mean that this is the best approach. Sweden trusts it's citizens to make appropriate decisions for themselves and their families, why don't ours?

While the majority of rest of the world is under a state of quarantine and some places with a police enforced lockdown, the country of Sweden takes an entirely different approach. The Western approach has triggered mass panic, fear and confusion about what is going on and when and if they will ever get to go back to how things were. The Swedish government, on the other hand has a close bond with their citizens and they have developed a sense of trust over the years by treating the adults, as adults who are capable of making informed decisions and taking appropriate measures to keep themselves and their families safe.

Sweden Takes A More Relaxed Approach

Unlike most of their European neighbours, Sweden has not closed non-essential businesses, borders or schools. They also have not banned gatherings containing two or more people. Sweden’s response to the global pandemic is being overseen mostly by the country’s Public Health Agency, which by the way, is a separate entity from their government. Sweden puts the power in the hands of the people, trusting that they will voluntarily adopt the recommended measures to delay the spread of the virus. They are still encouraging those who are vulnerable to stay at home and practice social distancing, and those who are ill to do the same, but they are not using force, hysteria, fear and panic to do so.

But in view of the evident worsening of the situation, Lena Hallengren, Minister of Social Affairs and Health and Johan Carlson, Director General of the National Institute of Public Health, presented new guidelines and regulations to try to limit the damage caused by the Covid-19 virus.

The most important of these guidelines concerns the number of customers in shops and stores, public transport and the activities of the country’s sports clubs.

Johan Carlson said, “Everyone should avoid participating in large social events, such as baptisms, weddings and big parties.” (source)

Controversial Measures

Of course, considering the state of the rest of the world, Sweden has attracted a lot of criticism from within the country and outside of it. The leading epidemiologist for the Public Health Agency, Anders Tegnell told CNBC in an interview that although his country was attempting a different strategy to defeat the spread of the virus, their aim was the same, “My view is that basically all European countries are trying to do the same thing — we’re trying to slow down the spread as much as possible to keep healthcare and society working … and we have shown some different methods to slow down the spread. Sweden has gone mostly for voluntary measures because that’s how we’re used to working, and we have a long tradition that it works rather well.”

Prime Minister of Sweden, Stefan Lofven has announced that times will be tough and has put the responsibility on the individual Swedes rather than having governments enforce strict measures, saying, “We all, as individuals, have to take responsibility. We can’t legislate and ban everything.”

Is Sweden In Danger?

It is interesting to note that as of today (April 3rd) there have been only 6,131 cases of Covid19 reported in Sweden, this ranks Sweden as 19th on the worldmeters.info list. So, in comparison to 18 other countries Sweden is actually doing alright with the measures they have put in to place.

Only time will tell if the measures taken by Sweden were appropriate or not. If they are able to manage the problem and still effectively “flatten the curve” it may be upsetting to the all the countries that are currently being asked to stay inside at all costs. A positive aspect to Sweden’s approach is that they are not using fear tactics as a means to control their citizens, less fear/stress means stronger immune systems.

Imagine if your government trusted you as a citizen enough to make the best decisions for you and your family based off recommendations instead of enforcing measures to control its citizens. I mean, can we get a little credit here to make appropriate decisions on our own during times like these? Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus, he referred to them as “draconian.” You can see his statement and read more about that here.

According to 21stcenturywire.com,

Only time will tell what the best response to this year’s outbreak turns out to be, but for the moment Sweden’s more laissez-faire approach should be heartening to its population. The government entrusting its citizens to observe advice and adjust their behaviours accordingly without the threat of police intervention is something that should be applauded in a free society. It also maintains a higher level of trust going in the other direction, from the public to the government. On a practical level, not employing draconian measures immediately prevents hysteria from taking hold amongst the public and allows for a slower escalation of measures should they be needed.

Trust is an important factor in a democracy where a government rules by consent of the people. Public trust in Sweden is exceptionally high, with citizens having faith that their politicians are acting in the public interest. Their propensity to treat adults like adults is key to that trust remaining.”

Final Thoughts

Just because many governments worldwide have enforced these strict measures doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the only option we have and they are the only way to effectively stop the spread. There are a lot of points worth pondering when it comes to the approach taken by most of the western world and it’s important to always keep asking questions. Absolutely stay home if you’re sick or have a compromised immune system, but for those who aren’t don’t forget to get out in the sunshine, get some fresh air, go for walks in nature and try to mitigate some of the fear and stress you may be feeling.

We are all in this together.
