EXCLUSIVE: Pfizer’s secret guide for how to make a vaccine “safe and effective”

Here’s Pfizer’s secret playbook for how to make a “safe and effective” vaccine:

  1. Require full liability protection

  2. Contracts require that the government isn’t allowed to reveal any adverse safety information without Pfizer’s express consent

  3. Get the US government to agree that there will not be any ICD10 codes for:

    1. Death of a fully vaxxed person from COVID

    2. Death from the COVID vaccine

    3. Injury from the COVID vaccine

  4. Avoid debating anyone who figures out the truth

  5. Make sure the medical journals only publish articles favorable to the vaccine. If there are any criticisms, ignore them.

  6. Criticize anyone who speaks out against the vaccines as “anti-science”

  7. Forbid doctors to speak negatively about the vaccine to their patients (e.g., CA AB2098)

  8. Punish doctors who tell the truth: fire them, strip them of their medical license, censor them, deplatform them, demonetize their channels, etc.

  9. Make sure the mainstream media is telling a consistent narrative by creating the “Trusted News Initiative

It’s really that simple. And I wish I was kidding. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s all true.

The excuse for not having those ICD10 codes listed above is simple: there is no need for such codes since these events are not possible.

I can assure you, the vaccine injured requested the codes be added, but they were denied. So today, you cannot die from COVID if you’ve been vaccinated and the vaccines don’t injure or kill people. That’s how science works.

Epic fail: Kirsch vs. the “debunkers” on the CDC data hiding accusations

I sent an email asking the leading anti-vax debunkers to join me in calling out the corruption at the CDC for not disclosing any of the safety signals that triggered in VAERS. “Are you going to speak out or remain silent?”

Instead of criticizing the CDC (which would have been the right thing to do), they tried to debunk my article.

This led to an epic fail in plain sight that can easily be verified by anyone.

So if you had any doubts about whether these people are champions of truth and science (like they claim to be), this article will make it crystal clear: all of these people are about supporting the government narrative and trying to discredit anyone who challenges the narrative. They are NOT about exposing the truth.

I will examine each one of their responses below so you can see just how deceitful these people are.

All the evidence you need to determine who is telling you the truth is hiding in plain sight and it’s all from the CDC itself!

When the CDC announced they found a stroke safety signal in the VSD database, I pointed out that I caught the CDC red-handed in a lie.

I asked the top “debunkers” whether they would join me in calling for an investigation as to how this could happen. After all, the CDC knew the safety signal triggered for ischemic stroke and death in VAERS, and never said a word to the American people. In fact, for death, the safety signal triggered two years ago and the CDC said nothing. What’s worse is that nobody is speaking out publicly about the corruption or calling for an investigation.

Surely, these professional debunkers should be the very first ones to call out the CDC if they were honest about “defending science,” right?!?!

So I sent this email to the popular anti-vax debunkers who have replied to me in the past:

If the CDC cares about public safety and the precautionary principle of medicine, the CDC should notify the public as soon as a safety signal happens.

In fact, that’s “supposedly” what happened here with the stroke signal. As soon as it triggered, they did a quick check of the other databases, and alerted the public.

From the Reuters article:

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday that a CDC vaccine database had uncovered a possible safety issue in which people 65 and older were more likely to have an ischemic stroke 21 days after receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech bivalent shot, compared with days 22-44.

“Although the totality of the data currently suggests that it is very unlikely that the signal in VSD (Vaccine Safety Datalink) represents a true clinical risk, we believe it is important to share this information with the public,” the health authorities said.

“Neither Pfizer and BioNTech nor the CDC or FDA have observed similar findings across numerous other monitoring systems in the U.S. and globally and there is no evidence to conclude that ischemic stroke is associated with the use of the companies’ COVID-19 vaccines,” the companies added.

The two key issues raised by my article are:

  1. You just told us about a safety signal triggering in VSD right after it happened even after you admitted it was probably insignificant because you believe full disclosure is better for the public than concealing such data…We agree! So how come you never told us about ANY of the safety signals triggered in VAERS at the time they triggered? You said nothing! How is that protecting the public? The death safety signal triggered in VAERS two years ago and you’ve said NOTHING to this day, for example. In the current instance, the CDC said they are just alerting us that a safety signal triggered even though you’ve investigated it and there is nothing there. So how was it OK to never have alerted the American public to hundreds of safety signals that triggered in VAERS even though you knew they triggered? In fact, you still, to this day, haven’t talked to the press about any of these safety signals to tell us why they are not a problem. For example for the death safety signal, where is the investigation? Can we see the histopathology slides you ordered done on the deceased to rule out a vaccine-caused death. Why can’t we see those images? Do you even have the images? Where is the transparency here? Why are these autopsy slides being hidden from view? Do you even use the proper stains to assess whether the vaccine might have caused the death? You never disclosed that. Why not? This is very very troubling. You are supposed to investigate the deaths, but it appears you never did even the most basic tests to assess causality. How can you rule out causality if you don’t look? What evidence do we have that you did it for any of the other safety signals?

  2. Why did you tell us that stroke was only in VSD when you knew it also triggered big time in VAERS for the COVID vaccines in general and you never even checked it for the boosters because you never did that calculation? Is it OK to mislead the American people that the stroke safety signal for ischemic stroke ONLY triggered in VSD when they knew full well it also triggered in VAERS for the overall vaccine and it never triggered for the booster because you never did the calculation? After all, if you never look, you won’t find anything. The CDC basically poo-pooed the signal because it happened only in one database when in reality, it happened in both databases and possibly more. They lied about it not happening in VAERS. Is it possible they lied about the other databases as well? And why is VSD kept under lock and key? Isn’t that because you don’t want the public to know how unsafe these vaccines really are? The fact that they never did the VAERS safety signal calculation for the booster doesn’t allow them to say “we never saw it in VAERS.” How could you have seen it in VAERS when you never looked? This is very corrupt.

Here are the counts for all vaccines in 2022 for stroke. Relatively few people got the new bivalent booster (which first became available Sept 2), but it has the second highest number of reports in the table, suggesting that there is something going on here with the booster. But clearly there is something going on with the primary shots because the stroke counts are absurdly high for a “safe” vaccine. The CDC admitted the safety signal triggered for the COVID19 vaccines, but basically hid that information from the public.

Here’s Gorski’s reply. It starts with an ad hominem attack and then goes into speculation with zero evidentiary support:

His response doesn’t address either of the two questions I noted above.

Gorski never tells us how he knows that they investigated the safety signals. Because they said they did? Where is the EVIDENCE for that? Gorski just gives them a pass. Is that how science works? Trust the government and don’t ask to see the data?

How exactly did the CDC rule out ischemic stroke as not being caused by the vaccine when the safety signal triggered in VAERS? What tests were done during the autopsy to assess this?

Where are the calculations for the boosters for ischemic stroke? If they exist, why didn’t the CDC turn these over in the FOIA?

I want to know:

  1. Why did they hide the VAERS signals from the public and continue to do so to this day.

  2. Why did they lie about the signal not being triggered in VAERS when they know full well it was triggered for the COVID vaccine in general and they NEVER did the calculation for the booster because they never broke it out.

I am none the wiser on any of these issues after reading Gorski’s response.

Once again, like with Gorski, the response starts with the obligatory ad hominem attack:

Let’s debunk both of Daniel’s references. Here’s the first one:

Notice that Daniel gives us NO INSIGHT at all as to the answer to our two questions.

Now look at his second reference. It’s to Eric Burnett, MD who has tried to debunk the clots in Died Suddenly without ever seeing one. He makes false statements that the clots are post-mortem clots when that is impossible (Chris Martenson explained the science behind these clots in this excellent video, and 2 foot long intact clots have never been extracted from LIVE people before AFAIK).

Here’s what Burnett has to say:

Sorry, but this tweet is non-responsive to my questions as to why the CDC never told us about the VAERS safety signals and how that can be OK.

Also, I can have it both ways. They are corrupt and are silent about all the safety signals in VAERS. It took a FOIA to get them. It wasn’t done willingly. While it is nice that they revealed the stroke safety signal in VSD without a FOIA, that doesn’t mean they are honest. It means that they were forced to acknowledge that signal, but they still didn’t acknowledge a single signal in VAERS, including the death and stroke signals from all COVID vaccines.

The CDC is very corrupt and we acknowledge them every time they make an admission that gets us closer to the truth. That’s not having it both ways. Give me a break.

Morris claims he’s a truth-seeker, but he always changes the topic when we get to stuff he can’t explain. For vaccine injured Maddie de Garay, for example, he said we’d have to wait until a court ruled that she was injured by the vaccine. So even though I could prove that the FDA promised to investigate her case and did nothing, that doesn’t mean there was fraud in the trial. Jeffrey is going to wait for a court decision before admitting there was fraud. Medical records, emails, an offer to talk to the victim, etc. were insufficient to sway him.

In this case, Morris is speechless for the first time. He’s ignored all my emails on this subject except the first one when he tried to change the topic. When I pressed him for a yes/no answer, all I heard back this time was crickets.

That’s a smart move by Jeffrey since the first rule of holes is “if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” I respect that. It saves us both time.

Dr. Oliver enjoys making videos debunking me, Norman Fenton, John Campbell, etc.

For example in this video, she attempts to debunk John Campell. She said he was credible when he was pro-vax, but after the data convinced Campbell the vaccine was dangerous, all of a sudden he’s no longer a credible source.

The video description says: “Dr Susan Oliver and Cindy the dog go back to the science and explain how he is using deception combined with stupidity to fool his audience.”

That is hardly the case. John got what he thought was good data. When the data turned out to be inaccurate, he revised his video. How is that deception?

I note that Susan has just 6.6K subscribers and John Campbell has 2.6M subscribers.

I’ve asked Susan to DM me on her YouTube comments. I’ll give her a go at responding to my question when she gets back to me.

Susan, if you are reading this, you can also use the Contact me form which is regularly monitored.

Or, since it appears you shy away from any live recorded discussions, you can simply collaborate with Cindy and Fred and do a cute video and I’ll debunk it here. Thanks.

Or maybe you will surprise me and do a video calling out the corruption at the CDC for hiding all the safety signals. But I doubt it.

He has never responded to any of my emails, so it’s useless to email him. He basically creates misleading content, and refuses to defend it when challenged. He is the only one of the debunkers who doesn’t respond. Very unprofessional.

I didn’t even bother to email him; it is such a waste of time.

He’s welcome to publish his attempt and I’ll debunk it here when he does.

As with all the others, I’d be amazed if he criticizes the CDC. If he did, he’d be fired.

  1. The CDC is always supposed to notify the public when a safety signal is triggered. They completely failed to do so when it triggered in VAERS for stroke and for death and for hundreds of other signals. Yet they did notify us for stroke in VSD; even though they found nothing, they reported the signal. Why didn’t they do the same for the VAERS signals? They knew the signals triggered and said nothing.

  2. They lied to the American people. They said “Neither Pfizer and BioNTech nor the CDC or FDA have observed similar findings across numerous other monitoring systems in the U.S.” That’s an outright lie since stroke triggered in VAERS, not just in VSD. It triggered for COVID19 vaccines and they never did a separate signal detection on the bivalent booster (it was all lumped together). At a minimum, they should have said they never broke out the booster in the signal calculations, but that the signal did trigger for ischemic stroke in VAERS for the COVID vaccines.

The debunkers give us no answers to either of these points. They don’t even seem to realize how corrupt the CDC is. They seem to have no problem with the CDC hiding the safety signals in VAERS.

My rating: Epic fail to debunk any of the key points in my article.

Are Athletes Dropping Dead From the COVID Jab?

  • Over the past two years (2021 and 2022), more than 1,650 professional and amateur athletes have collapsed due to cardiac events and 1,148 of them proved fatal

  • Damar Hamlin, a 24-year-old Buffalo Bills football player went into cardiac arrest on live television after being tackled during a January 2, 2023, game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Team trainers and emergency medical staff performed CPR for more than nine minutes, which saved his life

  • Whether the COVID jab played a role in what happened to Hamlin is impossible to know for sure, but Dr. Peter McCullough suspects it may have played a role — provided he actually got the shot

  • A condition called commotio cordis is known to occur in baseball when a player is hit hard on the breastbone, thereby causing cardiac arrest. There are approximately 20 to 30 such cases each year, but never in pro football. In McCullough’s view, commotio cordis can likely be ruled out. The more likely cause for Hamlin’s cardiac arrest, he believes, is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), or abnormal thickening of the heart muscle, which is the primary cause for athletes suffering cardiac arrest

  • During exercise, adrenaline is pumping, and when the heart is damaged this adrenaline rush is what triggers the cardiac arrest. This helps explain not only the death of athletes on the field, or people dying while jogging, but also why so many are dying in their sleep, because adrenaline is released between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., as your body readies to wake up

With every passing day, the list of people suffering tragic consequences from the COVID mRNA shots grows longer. As of December 23, 2022, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had received 33,334 reports of post-jab deaths, 26,045 cases of myocarditis and 15,970 heart attacks.

Many of these people and their stories have remained hidden from public view as social media have universally censored these stories. As a result, people who only read mainstream media are largely unaware of the damage being done. However, there is a population of people whose injuries and deaths have been far more public.

Over the past two years (2021 through 2022), more than 1,650

professional and amateur athletes have collapsed due to cardiac events and 1,148

of them proved fatal. In his book “Cause Unknown: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 and 2022,”

Edward Dowd writes extensively about the anomalous number of deaths now occurring among athletes, which, despite “fact checkers” best efforts to dismiss it as “normal,”

is anything but.

More than likely, you’ve heard that Damar Hamlin, a 24-year-old Buffalo Bills football player went into cardiac arrest on live television after being tackled during a January 2, 2023, game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Team trainers and emergency medical staff performed CPR for more than nine minutes, which saved his life. After initially being placed in a medically-induced coma, Hamlin was reportedly on the mend within a week.

Whether the COVID jab played a role in what happened to Hamlin is impossible to know for sure. Looking at the replays, it’s clear he took a very severe hit right to the chest right before his collapse, and this certainly could have caused the heart attack. At bare minimum, it’s not unheard of. Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker had a similar incident in 2017, as did hockey legend Chris Pronger in 1998.

On the other hand, it’s also not inconceivable that the COVID jab — if Hamlin was in fact “vaxxed” — could have affected his heart, thereby playing a contributing role. We now know the COVID shot is associated with a significantly elevated risk of myocarditis, which in turn raises the risk of sudden cardiac death in contact sports.

While the NFL enforced strict COVID jab rules for employees who have contact with players, the players and coaches were not subject to mandates.

That said, 95% of players did get the shot, according to the NFL league.

In a January 4, 2023, Children’s Health Defense interview, Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist and internist, reviewed what could have happened in Hamlin’s case. As noted by McCullough, a condition called commotio cordis (Latin for “agitation of the heart”) is known to occur in baseball when a player is hit hard on the breastbone, thereby causing cardiac arrest. There are approximately 20 to 30 such cases each year.

However, no such case has ever occurred in 100 years of pro football. Football players have padding that protects the breastbone, so in McCullough’s view, commotio cordis can likely be ruled out. The more likely cause for Hamlin’s cardiac arrest, he believes, is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), or abnormal thickening of the heart muscle, which is the primary cause for athletes suffering cardiac arrest.

The reason why HCM is the No. 1 cause of cardiac arrest in professional athletes is because it causes few if any symptoms and often goes undiagnosed. Professional athletes undergo extensive medical evaluation and cardiovascular screening

before being given the green-light to play, and they also constitute the healthiest segment of society in general,

so most heart problems are ruled out before they ever enter the field.

“The elephant in the room,” however, according to McCullough, is the COVID jab. Before these shots were rolled out, the average number of cardiac arrests in all European soccer and football leagues combined was 29 per year. Since the advent of the COVID shots, 1,598 European pro athletes have suffered cardiac arrest, giving us a comparative annual tally of nearly 800. Of those 1,598 cardiac arrests, 1,101 were fatal.

McCullough detailed these and other stats in a December 17, 2022, letter to the editor of the Journal of Scandinavian Immunology. The paper was co-authored by Panagis Polykretis, Ph.D., a researcher at the Institute of Applied Physics, which is part of the Italian National Research Council.

McCullough and Polykretis have been, and still are, calling for a proper investigation of these deaths.

McCullough and Polykretis suspect COVID jab-induced myocarditis is the explanation for this otherwise inconceivable increase in cardiac arrests among athletes, and McCullough believes it also tops the list of potential reasons for Hamlin’s cardiac arrest, considering 95% of NFL players had received the jab as of March 2022.

McCullough cites research showing about 2.5% of COVID jab recipients sustain heart damage, 90% of them being men. And, in about half of all jab-related myocarditis cases, there are no symptoms to alert you there might be a problem. As explained by McCullough, myocarditis causes scarring on the heart, and it is this scarring that causes an abnormal electrical rhythm (ventricular tachycardia) and sudden adult death syndrome.

There are now more than 200 scientific papers on jab-related myocarditis. A January 2023 study

in the European Journal of Pediatrics found high levels of circulating spike protein in 16 male high school students hospitalized with myocarditis induced by the shots, which again suggests the spike protein your body produces is a key pathogenic factor.

McCullough explains in greater detail how the shot may have triggered Hamlin’s cardiac arrest: During play, adrenaline is pumping, and when the heart is damaged this adrenaline rush is what triggers the cardiac arrest.

This helps explain not only the death of athletes on the field, or people dying while jogging, but also why so many are dying in their sleep, because adrenaline is released between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., as your body readies to wake up.

Whatever caused Hamlin’s cardiac arrest — and hopefully a careful medical investigation after his recovery will clarify what happened — there’s no doubt that athletes in general are dying in far greater numbers now than ever before.

“The number of athletes who ‘died suddenly’ between January 2021 and April 2022 was 1,696% above the historical monthly norm between 1966 and 2004 — 42 per month compared to just 2.35 per month.”

In related news, a November 2022 report

by The Exposé showed the number of athletes who “died suddenly” between January 2021 and April 2022 was 1,696% above the historical monthly norm

between 1966 and 2004 — 42 per month compared to just 2.35 per month.

The following graph illustrates the rise in recorded athlete collapses and deaths between January 2021, the month the COVID shots started to roll out, and April 2022.

As noted by The Exposé:

“In all between Jan 21 and April 22, a total number of 673 athletes were known to have died. This number could, however, be much higher. So that’s 428 less than the number to have died between 1966 and 2004. The difference here though is that the 1,101 deaths occurred over 39 years, whereas 673 recent deaths occurred over 16 months …

The yearly average number of deaths between 1966 and 2004 equates to 28. January 2022 saw three times as many athlete deaths than this previous annual average, as did March 2022. So this is obviously highly indicative of a problem.

The 2021 total equates to 394 deaths, 14x higher than the 1966 to 2004 annual average. The Jan to April 2022 total, a period of 4 months, equates to 279 deaths, 9.96x higher than the annual average between 1966 and 2004.

However, if we divide the 66 to 04 annual average by 3 to make it equivalent to the first four months’ worth of deaths in 2022, we get 9.3 deaths. So in effect, by April 2022, deaths among athletes were 10x higher than the expected rate …

[B]etween 1966 and 2004. the monthly average number of deaths equates to 2.35. But between January 2021 and April 2022, the monthly average equates to 42. This is an increase of 1,696%.”

A nearly 1,700% increase in sudden cardiac-related death among athletes is inexplicable unless you take the experimental COVID jabs into account. Research

published in November 2021 found inflammatory markers — signs of cardiovascular damage — rose dramatically after the second COVID shot, and the risk of heart attacks and other heart-related problems more than doubled in the months following these injections. 

Pre-jab, patients had an 11% five-year risk of heart attack. Post-jab, that risk rose to 25%, a 227% increase in risk. As reported by The Exposé, other statistics also reveal heart damage has become ubiquitous among those who got one or more mRNA jabs:

“Acute cardiac failure rates are now 475 times the normal baseline rate in VAERS. Tachycardia rates are 7,973 times the baseline rate. Acute myocardial infarction is 412 times the baseline rate.

The rates of internal hemorrhage, peripheral artery thrombosis, and coronary artery occlusion are all over 300 times the baseline rate … It doesn’t take a genius to work out that COVID-19 vaccination is the reason the monthly average number of athlete deaths was 1,700% higher than the expected rate by April 2022.”

In late December 2022, Steve Kirsch also published data showing the shots are a public health disaster.

According to the results of a survey Kirsch conducted, “sudden death” was the No. 1 cause of death in 2021 and 2022 among Americans under 65 who had received the COVID shot.

The second and third causes of death in this group were cardiac-related death and cancer respectively. Importantly, the incidence of turbo-charged cancer among the jabbed was also significant, and myocarditis killed more than COVID-19.

Among the unjabbed, the primary cause of death for people 65 and younger in 2021 and 2022 was hospital treatment for COVID. Incidences of sudden death, pulmonary embolism and turbo-charged cancers were all low, and there were no unknown causes of death, nor any myocarditis deaths. Kirsch summarized the three most stunning differences between the jabbed and unjabbed as follows:

  1. “Sudden death rates are off the charts for the vaccinated cf. unvaccinated for those <65 … It's the #1 cause of death for this age group …

  2. Myocarditis as a cause of death is registering now for both age ranges but only for the vaccinated …

  3. Cardiac issues as a cause of death in vaccinated young people (<65) are significantly elevated vs. their unvaxxed peers."

While we cannot make any definitive statements about what caused Hamlin’s cardiac arrest, one thing that is not in doubt is that immediate and ongoing CPR is what saved his life. Nine minutes is a long time to give CPR, and most people will simply give up after two or three minutes. Hamlin’s case is proof positive that sometimes you need to give CPR for an extended period of time.

As many who got the experimental COVID shots will have some level of heart damage that raises their risk of cardiac arrest and sudden death, the need for CPR know-how is only going to grow. So, please, learn CPR. It could be the difference between life and death of someone you love. Also, consider investing in an automated external defibrillator (AED) for your home and/or office.

These machines are lightweight and battery operated. Sticky pads with sensors are attached to the chest and those electrodes send information to the computer inside the machine.

The AED computer will analyze the heart rhythm to determine if electric shock is needed. If required, the machine uses voice prompts to tell you what to do and when to do it. AED machines are safe to use and there are no reports of them harming bystanders or users or, of delivering inappropriate shocks.

When an individual suffers a cardiac arrest, the heart immediately stops beating. This means there is no blood being pumped to the body or brain. At this time it is critical for bystanders to:

  1. Call emergency services (dial 911 in the U.S.)

  2. Begin CPR

  3. Apply the nearest automated external defibrillator (AED)

If you don’t have formal training, 911 dispatchers can give you specific instructions on using an AED and performing CPR until paramedics arrive. While you may hesitate, being afraid you could hurt the victim, at this time the person is clinically dead and can’t get any worse. Bystander CPR and AED can only help.

For cardiac arrest, CPR and treatment with an AED as needed (while awaiting emergency services) significantly increase the potential for survival and, importantly, lower the risk of permanent disability. It is now believed Hamlin has a good chance of neurological recovery, which would not have been possible had it not been for the fact that he received CPR for more than nine minutes.

Testing the Most Effective Method to Manipulate Minds

  • The U.S. government is planning to launch an “overwhelming” COVID-19 vaccine campaign in November

  • It’s still unclear exactly when a vaccine will be available, but it could be as early as October, or as late as January 2021. According to a White House administration official, the advertising campaign will be tailored to specific subsets of the population, depending on the people the vaccine is likely to benefit the most

  • Yale University is studying the effectiveness of various messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 to ensure maximum vaccine uptake

  • The primary outcome measure is willingness to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Secondary outcome measures include the participants’ confidence in the vaccine, their willingness to persuade others to get vaccinated, their fear of those who have not been vaccinated and the level of social judgment of those who choose not to vaccinate

  • Evidence that technocracy is gaining ground and is in the final stages of implementation are all around. Technocracy is an economic system, not a political one, which hinges on the skillful implementation of social engineering

By the looks of it, we are about to face one of the most aggressive vaccine campaigns ever created. According to Reuters,

the U.S. government is planning to launch an “overwhelming” COVID-19 vaccine campaign come November, provided the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gives one or more vaccine candidates the green light.

Considering former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb

is now on Pfizer’s board of directors,

and Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is one of the lead candidates, jaded minds might assume the FDA isn’t going to put up any significant roadblocks.

According to Reuters, the COVID-19 vaccine campaign “will likely be compressed into a short period of time, around four to six weeks, to eliminate any lag between when Americans are alerted to the vaccine and then they can get vaccinated.” An unnamed “senior White House administration official” is quoted saying:

“The fine line we are walking is getting the American people very excited about vaccines and missing expectations versus having a bunch of vaccines in the warehouse and not as many people want to get it. You may not hear a lot about promoting vaccines over the airwaves in August and September but you’ll be overwhelmed by it come November.”

It’s still unclear exactly when a vaccine will be available, but it could be as early as October, or as late as January 2021. According to the administration official, the advertising campaign for the vaccine will be tailored to specific subsets of the population, depending on the people the vaccine is likely to benefit the most. Such details are expected to be teased out during ongoing clinical trials.

The idea that the vaccine promotion might be more “overwhelming” than what we’re used to is further supported by a clinical study

on ClinicalTrials.gov, the aim of which is to identify the most “persuasive messages for COVID-19 vaccine uptake.”

The study, conducted by Yale University, will test “different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available.”

A total of 4,000 participants will be randomized to receive one of 12 different messages (10 messaging variations, one control message and one baseline message), after which they will “compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at three and six months of it becoming available.” The messaging slants under investigation include:

  • Personal freedom message — A message about how COVID-19 is limiting people’s personal freedom, and how society, by working together to get enough people vaccinated, can preserve its personal freedom.

  • Economic freedom message — A message about how COVID-19 is limiting people’s economic freedom, and how society, by working together to get enough people vaccinated, can preserve its economic freedom.

  • Self-interest message — A message that COVID-19 presents a real danger to one’s health, even if one is young and healthy, and how getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way to prevent oneself from getting sick.

  • Community interest message — A message about the dangers of COVID-19 to the health of loved ones: The more people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, the lower the risk that one’s loved ones will get sick. Society must work together and all get vaccinated.

  • Economic benefit message — A message about how COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the economy and the only way to strengthen the economy is to work together to get enough people vaccinated.

  • Guilt message — A message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. Therefore, the best way to protect them is not only by getting vaccinated, but to get society to work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then a test question asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and then spread the disease.

  • Embarrassment message — A message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community: The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and by working together to make sure that enough people get vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the embarrassment they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease.

  • Anger message — The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and by working together to make sure that enough people get vaccinated. It then asks the participant to imagine the anger they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease.

  • Trust in science message — A message about how getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the most effective way of protecting one’s community, that vaccination is backed by science: If one doesn’t get vaccinated that means that one doesn’t understand how infections are spread or you are one who ignores science.

  • Not brave message — A message which describes how firefighters, doctors and front line medical workers are brave: Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave.

While the study was completed July 8, 2020, results have yet to be publicly posted. Clearly, this is not the first time researchers have investigated the most effective propaganda angles, but the types of messages listed above really demonstrate just how insidious these types of campaigns can be.

It’s really all about manipulation — pushing the right mental and emotional hot-buttons to fire up a desired response, all while overriding more logical thought processes.

The propaganda push has already started, it seems, with USA Today publishing an article

titled “Defeat COVID-19 by Requiring Vaccination for All. It’s Not Un-American, It’s Patriotic.” This is precisely the kind of PR we can expect more of in the months to come.

The manipulation aspect is equally if not more evident in the listed secondary outcome measures, which include:

  • Participants’ confidence in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine

  • Participants’ willingness to persuade others to get vaccinated

  • Their fear of those who have not been vaccinated

  • The social judgment of those who choose not to vaccinate

A quote from Aldous Huxley’s dystopian 1932 book, “Brave New World,” reads:

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

Huxley’s quote starts off a thought-provoking article

on The Burning Platform that reviews the rise of totalitarianism and parallels presented in popular works of fiction. The author notes Huxley’s book came on the heels of Edward Bernays’ 1928 book, “Propaganda” — a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the historical foundations of modern public relations. The article points out that, in his book, Bernays:

“… revealed the existence of an invisible government who used propaganda to manipulate the minds of the public to insure those controlling the levers of power were able to engineer their desired outcomes.”

A contemporary to Huxley and Bernays was George Orwell, who wrote the cult classic “1984.” In 1949, Huxley reportedly wrote to Orwell, stating he believed the world’s rulers would soon “discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient as instruments of government than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience.”

“At its heart, technocracy is an economic system, not a political one. The system also hinges on the skillful implementation of social engineering.”

Huxley believed the nightmarish existence presented in “1984” was “destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in ‘Brave New World'” and that this transition would be the result of “a felt need for increased efficiency.” While Huxley did not use the word “technocracy,” that’s essentially what he was talking about.

Technocracy is an economic and social engineering system that got started in the 1930s during the height of the Great Depression, when scientists and engineers got together to solve the nation’s economic problems.

The Trilateral Commission’s co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski, a Columbia University professor, brought the concept of technocracy into the Commission in 1973, with the financial support of David Rockefeller. Technocrats have silently and relentlessly pushed forward ever since, and their agenda is now becoming increasingly visible.

At its heart, technocracy is an economic system, not a political one. It actually calls for, indeed demands, the total dismantling of the political system, which includes the U.S. Constitution. In fact, the Constitution is the only thing that has kept technocracy at bay this long in the U.S.

The system also hinges on the skillful implementation of social engineering. Once fully implemented, people won’t have the ability to effectively fight it, but until then, through peaceful civil disobedience, the sharing of information and the exercise of political power, we still have a chance to prevent it.

Time is running short, however. As noted by The Burning Platform,

“Since 9/11, the United States has unequivocally moved in the direction of Orwell’s 1984 vision,” and “We are now experiencing a dystopian amalgamation of the worst of both novels,” referring to “1984” and “Brave New World.”

Unfortunately, many still cannot see the full picture, nor understand the ultimate real-world danger of unquestioning compliance with ever-more illogical and freedom-quenching recommendations and mandates.

Under technocratic rule, nations are to be led by unelected leaders who decide which resources companies can use to make certain products, and which products consumers are ultimately allowed to buy. Technocracy is essentially a resource-based economic system in which energy and social engineering run the economy rather than pricing mechanisms such as supply and demand.

Patrick Wood — an economist, financial analyst and American constitutionalist — has devoted a lifetime to uncovering the mystery of what is controlling most of the craziness we’re currently seeing, and which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. I go into more details on technocracy in my interview with Patrick Wood.

His two books, “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation” and “Technocracy: The Hard Road to World Order” delve into this new world order in greater depth. You can listen to our interview below.

Importantly, science is a primary tool used to manipulate society and keep the economic engine running under the technocratic system. As explained by Wood, technocracy uses science to issue suggestions, to start. But those suggestions rapidly turn into mandates, which is precisely what we’ve been seeing during this pandemic. We’ve also seen this with vaccines in general.

But the COVID-19 pandemic has also revealed there’s a much larger plan that includes implantable digital identifications, medical records and vaccine passports, digital currency and banking — all of which will ultimately be tied together so that algorithms and automation will be able to keep everyone in line, everywhere, all the time.

An important tool used to drive the technocratic agenda forward is what Huxley pointed out, namely efficiency. In the name of efficiency and convenience, we are being inundated with an ever-increasing amount of “smart” technology that tracks everything everyone says and does, and artificial intelligence that sorts, interprets and spits out recommendations based on all that data.

This technological infrastructure is crucial for the technocracy, as the ultimate goal is to essentially automate slavery. The idea is that society will be ruled by automated algorithms, thus rendering a political structure irrelevant. Everyone will be automatically kept in line by technology.

For example, you might be told via text message that it’s time to get your annual vaccination. You go there, get the shot, and receive a digital vaccine certificate. Should you get the bright idea to refuse, your bank accounts get automatically frozen, the electronic door pass to your office won’t work, and you won’t be allowed to pass through the electronic check point at the grocery store.

No human authority is required in that system. There won’t be anyone to complain to or debate with. You’re herded into compliance by the fact that you have to do certain things in order to be allowed to participate in society. It sounds crazy, but if you look around, you’ll see clear evidence that this system has been slowly implemented all around us, for decades.

And, when you look at the statements from people like Bill Gates, in conjunction with the technologies he and others are implementing in various parts of the world (such as digital identification, currency, vaccine certificates and medical records, along with implantable chips to track employee attendance, smart appliances and entire smart cities, just to name a few), you can begin to see how the control loop is closing in around us.

In her book, “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism,” professor Shoshana Zuboff exposes the stunning capacities currently available to surveil, analyze and manipulate our behavior. It’s crucial to realize that as bad as it is today, the predictive power of technology is advancing at an exponential rate, which means their ability to manipulate behavior is increasing at a pace we cannot fully comprehend.

Importantly, technocrats are currently making an end run around national sovereignty. Rather than a frontal assault on the system, which has never been successful, they’ve simply eroded national sovereignty piece by piece. What can we can do to thwart the steady march of technocracy?

As explained by Wood, the most effective way is through local activism. The technocratic system was built from the bottom up, so we cannot tear it down from the top down. They’re already far too powerful for that. So, to begin the dismantling process, we must regain control of our local governments, and work our way up from there.

One of the most important elected local officials that you should concern yourself with is your sheriff. Sheriffs are responsible for enforcing tyrannical edicts from local, state and federal government, and if they choose not to, government has no power. City councils also have a lot of power. They can pass binding resolutions to protect citizens against the technocratic agenda.

Getting back to the issue of the COVID-19 vaccine, I urge you to keep a cool head once the PR machine gains speed. Read through the propaganda messages again (above) and familiarize yourself with them so you can identify the buttons they’re trying to push.

Remember, the COVID-19 vaccines currently leading in development have never before been licensed for human use, and there’s no possible way to ascertain what the long-term ramifications might be when you turn your body into a viral protein factory. I’ve discussed the theory behind mRNA vaccines in several previous articles, including “Gates Tries to Justify Side Effects of Fast-Tracked Vaccine.”

Coronavirus vaccine efforts gained speed in early 2002, following three SARS epidemics. However, such efforts have proven highly problematic as coronavirus vaccines have a stubborn tendency to trigger paradoxical immune responses.

In my interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who chairs the board of directors of the Children’s Health Defense,

he reviewed some of the failed efforts to produce a viable coronavirus vaccine and highlighted the dangers of vaccine exaggeration of the immune response:

“The Chinese, the Americans, the Europeans all got together and said, ‘We need to develop a vaccine against coronavirus.’ Around 2012, they had about 30 vaccines that looked promising. They took the four best of those and … gave those vaccines to ferrets, which are the closest analogy when you’re looking at lung infections in human beings.

The ferrets had an extraordinarily good antibody response, and that is the metric by which FDA licenses vaccines … The ferrets developed very strong antibodies, so they thought, ‘We hit the jackpot.’ All four of these vaccines … worked like a charm.

Then something terrible happened. Those ferrets were then exposed to the wild virus, and they all died. [They developed] inflammation in all their organs, their lungs stopped functioning and they died.”

So please, review ALL the vaccine studies BEFORE you get the COVID vaccine because as far as I have read, this essential part of the study — ensuring that no paradoxical immune enhancement will occur — has not yet been done.

Even with conventionally manufactured vaccines, data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research Quality suggests vaccine damage occurs in 2.6% of all vaccinations. This means 1 in 40 people — not 1 in 1 million, which is what we’ve been repeatedly told — is injured by vaccines. Kennedy Jr. reviewed this data in a recent online vaccine debate

with attorney and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz.

The U.S. Vaccine Court has also paid out $4 billion to patients permanently damaged or killed by vaccines, and that’s just a small portion of all the cases filed. According to Kennedy, less than 1% of people who are injured ever get to court, due to the high bar set for proving causation.

Will the novel mRNA COVID-19 vaccines be more dangerous than conventional vaccines, or will they be safer? Considering these vaccines are being fast-tracked and are forgoing all traditional animal testing and long-term evaluation, I suspect they may end up having far more unanticipated complications.

So, as the vaccine campaign rolls out, remember to weigh whatever potential risks and benefits that might apply in your particular situation, and avoid falling for emotional triggers.

Regardless of what you decide, also try to accept the personal decisions of others. The PR campaign will clearly try to manipulate you into fearing those who chose not to vaccinate, and trigger you into condemning them. Hopefully, knowing that you are being manipulated will help ease these tendencies.

More than 140 scientific studies suggest melatonin is a useful agent for treating SARS-CoV-2, according to research published in Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences.

Despite this, and its known antiviral and anti-inflammatory effects, melatonin has received little attention as a countermeasure for COVID-19.

After reviewing the published literature related to melatonin and SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 in November 2021, the research team found melatonin was most often researched for its ability to suppress inflammation and the cytokine storm related to COVID-19.

Use of melatonin as a treatment for people infected with SARS-CoV-2 was another common theme.

Overall, the data provide the rationale that melatonin could be used as a prophylactic agent against COVID-19 as well as a tool for treatment. When people with COVID-19 were given melatonin, either alone or in combination with other treatments, severity of infection was reduced, death rate was lowered and hospitalizations were shortened.

“Melatonin’s ability to arrest SARS-CoV-2 infections may reduce health care exhaustion by limiting the need for hospitalization,” the researchers noted, adding that it’s also safe — “melatonin has a high safety profile over a wide range of doses and lacks significant toxicity.”

One reason why melatonin works as an anti-COVID-19 agent is due to its role against sepsis (blood poisoning). The researchers explained:

“While SARS-CoV-2 infections are generally thought of as a pulmonary issue, the consequences of this infection transcend the respiratory system. Ultimately, this disease becomes systemic with the development of severe sepsis or septic shock leading to multiple organ failure which is the condition that commonly leads to death of SARS-CoV-2-infected patients.”

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition triggered by a systemic infection that causes your body to overreact and launch an excessive and highly damaging immune response. Melatonin has prevented death in newborns suffering from severe bacterial sepsis

and also appears to reverse septic shock symptoms by:

  • Decreasing synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines

  • Preventing lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced oxidative damage, endotoxemia and metabolic alterations

  • Suppressing gene expression of the bad form of nitric oxide, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS)

  • Preventing apoptosis (cell death)

Many people are not aware that only 5% of your body’s melatonin — which is also a potent anticancer agent — is produced in your pineal gland. The other 95% is produced inside your mitochondria — provided you get sufficient near infrared exposure which is typically from sun on your bare skin. This is why vitamin D is more than likely a biomarker for sun exposure, which is intricately involved in melatonin production.

As such, there’s also a mitochondrial component as to why melatonin appears so crucial for fighting viral infections like SARS-CoV-2. In fact, COVID-19 could be classified as a mitochondria-related disease, the researchers noted. They explained:

“Numerous inter-related factors conspire to enhance the cytokine storm and multiple organ failure associated with COVID-19 disease severity and mortality, including elevated sPLA2-IIA, development of pro-inflammatory M1 macrophages, activation of HIF-1α, conversion to Warburg-type metabolism of immune cells, damage to mitochondria, massive release of cytokines, oxidative stress, etc. … each of these actions have been shown to be counteracted by melatonin.

A center piece of this series of processes may be the alterations in mitochondrial physiology and the shift of glucose oxidation to the cytosol [one of the liquids found inside cells]. This change in glucose handling markedly alters the metabolism of the mitochondria, which is critical to limiting cellular dysfunction, resisting disease, and preventing organismal death.”

In healthy cells, melatonin synthesis in mitochondria occurs when the glucose metabolite pyruvate enters the mitochondria. Glucose is a six-carbon molecule and is divided into two three-carbon molecules of pyruvate. Once the pyruvate is inside the mitochondria, it is subsequently metabolized into acetyl-coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA).

Acetyl-CoA is a required co-substrate for the intramitochondrial production of melatonin, which occurs in healthy cells but likely not cells that are highly inflamed. Further, the team reported, “when intracellular glucose metabolism is reprogrammed from the mitochondria into the cytosol, the mitochondria can no longer synthesize” acetyl-CoA, contributing to disease:

“Thus, in the absence of local melatonin synthesis in infected cells, the loss of this locally produced potent endogenously generated anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agent, the mitochondria lose a major portion of their protection against reactive oxygen species, inflammatory cytokines, etc., leading to their dysfunction; this contributes to a weakening of the cells with an increased susceptibility to cellular destruction by SARS-CoV-2.

This would help explain the published data documenting the ability of melatonin to resist virus-related diseases, including that related to several different coronaviruses.”

Melatonin is one of the most important antioxidant molecules. In the human body — aside from having direct antioxidant effects — it also stimulates the synthesis of glutathione and other important antioxidants like superoxide dismutase and catalase.

Melatonin increases glutathione through a genomic effect on the enzyme that regulates the synthesis of gamma glutamylcysteine synthase, the rate limiting enzyme in glutathione synthesis. Melatonin activates that enzyme.

Glutathione tends to be found in high concentrations in cells, although some is also found, to a lesser degree, in the extracellular space and the mitochondria. Melatonin’s antioxidant effects are quite diverse but include preventing free radical generation by enhancing the efficiency of the electron transport chain so fewer electrons leach onto oxygen molecules to generate super oxide antiradical.

Melatonin’s antioxidant prowess may be one reason why it’s a known suppressor of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), also known as oxygen sensing transcription factor. HIF-1α is activated under conditions of systemic low oxygen, and patients with elevated HIF-1α have increased risk of mortality and related severe cytokine release. Melatonin, as an HIF-1α inhibitor, may further contribute to a reduction in lung damage and COVID-19 severity.

Early on during the pandemic, a number of physicians and researchers called for melatonin in the treatment of COVID-19. The Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) recommends the use of melatonin in their I-Care early COVID treatment protocol.

In April 2020, a team from the U.S., Israel and Russia also suggested melatonin could reduce the severity of the pandemic, stating:

“… by using the safe over-the-counter drug melatonin, we may be immediately able to prevent the development of severe disease symptoms in coronavirus patients, reduce the severity of their symptoms, and/or reduce the immuno-pathology of coronavirus infection on patients’ health after the active phase of the infection is over.”

In May 2020, a paper written by a group of scientists from the U.S. and Spain strongly suggested that melatonin be considered for prophylaxis or treatment of SARS-CoV-2. At the time, they noted:

“Melatonin’s multiple actions as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-viral (against other viruses) make it a reasonable choice for use. Melatonin is readily available, can be easily synthesized in large quantities, is inexpensive, has a very high safety profile and can be easily self-administered.”

Then, in October 2020, a group from Turkey proposed using melatonin as a treatment for COVID-19 in the elderly, as it influences circadian rhythm, cardiovascular function and the immune system.

Researchers know that melatonin levels decline with age, which is also associated with age-related diseases. They postulated that for this reason melatonin supplementation may be beneficial in treating older adults, in part by preventing age-related oxidative stress.

In December 2020, a team of scientists from Buenos Aires and the University of Toronto, Canada, also collaborated on a paper suggesting there was significant therapeutic potential for melatonin to “counteract the consequences of COVID-19 infections.”

The writers postulated that melatonin has unique and wide-ranging effects as an anti-inflammatory agent, antioxidant and immunomodulatory compound and could be the “silver bullet” in treating COVID-19 patients. Given at night, it could effectively reverse sleep disorders and help control delirium in some patients. They further noted:

“[I]ndirect evidence points out to a possible antiviral action of melatonin by interfering with SARS-CoV-2/angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 association … As a cytoprotector, melatonin serves to combat several comorbidities such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and ischemic and non-ischemic cardiovascular diseases, which aggravate COVID-19 disease.”

They even suggested melatonin has neuroprotective properties that can potentially reduce the neurological sequelae documented in patients infected with COVID-19.

Later, in August 2021, researchers with Texas Tech University again called for melatonin as an early treatment option for COVID-19, explaining:

“Although melatonin acts to fight early viral replication, the use of melatonin in patients with COVID-19 is not meant to be used as a cure but instead as an agent that equips the body to better fight viral infection.

This is demonstrated by the fact that in cases where the immune system is suppressed, melatonin has been found to stimulate the immune system, and in cases where there is inflammation, it has been found to show an immunosuppressive effect.

In the case of COVID-19, reduction of the long-lasting inflammatory and oxidative effects of the virus by melatonin allows the patient’s own immune system to properly respond to infection and recover more efficiently with a reduced recovery time.”

The authors of the featured study called melatonin’s failure to attract widespread attention as a potential COVID-19 treatment “disappointing” and due, in part, to “lack of promotion of its therapeutic use for this disease by any influential group.”

Yet melatonin not only appears effective for COVID-19 but also costs up to 100 times less than prescription drugs indicated for the condition.

Specifically, they found that melatonin is at least twice as effective as remdesivir or tocilizumab for reducing COVID-19 inflammatory markers. While the drugs were approved by the FDA to treat COVID-19, melatonin was not. Why? It all boils down to money:

“Both drugs have notable side effects and are given intravenously. In contrast, melatonin has a high safety profile and can be taken orally or administered by any other route. Since melatonin is non-patentable and is inexpensive, the incentive of the pharmaceutical industry to support its use is lost. Finally, pharmaceutical drugs are sometimes enthusiastically advanced by individuals who stand to gain financially.”

As for dosing, the trials involved in the featured study used total melatonin doses ranging between 2 milligrams (mg) daily and 500 mg daily, taken orally once per day or divided into multiple doses over a 24-hour period.

Other physicians have used a dose of 1 mg per kilogram of body weight. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you could consider taking oral or sublingual melatonin 30 to 45 minutes before bedtime, first thing in the morning, at 10 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. Ideally, work with a holistic health care provider who can guide you on proper dosing.

Although it has a high safety profile, using high-dose melatonin long term could be risky, as doses over 5 mg to 10 mg are likely to draw out heavy metals like mercury from your body. Unless you’re following a good detoxification program and using a sauna regularly, these heavy metals could cause biological damage.

While there are likely benefits to supplementing with oral melatonin, keep in mind that it also helps to optimize your body’s own production. It’s relatively simple and inexpensive, and at the same time you will help to optimize your vitamin D levels. Optimizing melatonin production begins with getting enough bright sunlight during the day since this helps to set your circadian clock.

As the evening approaches and the sun sets, you’ll want to avoid artificial lighting. Blue light from electronic screens and LED lights is particularly problematic and inhibits the production of melatonin. If you do need lighting, use incandescent light bulbs, candles or salt lamps. The blue light from electronic screens can be counteracted by using blue blocking software or wearing blue blocking glasses.

Told You So

 By Anna Von Reitz

Some years ago, while roaming about wherever my curiosity about Nature would take me, I discovered an alarming fact: the amount of available atmospheric oxygen is steeply declining, a whopping 5% in the past hundred and fifty years alone.  
This means that we are living in an oxygen-deprived environment, compared to the evolutionary environment that our bodies developed in, and that in turn has many, many consequences for our biology overall and our individual biological functions. 
For one thing, our food is not being completely combusted and reduced as it should be, leaving many toxic metabolic by-products floating around our bloodstream and over-burdening our livers and skins and kidneys.
It also means that our blood pH is shifted toward the acidic side of the spectrum, instead of remaining relatively neutral — which has other effects on our biochemistry, including our electrochemical functions — impacting our brains and our nervous systems and all adding up to chronic damage to our adrenal glands.  
At the same time that we are being exposed to fantastically elevated amounts of sugar in our diets, we are less able to metabolize sugar completely, which leads the brain, the most sugar-dependent organ, to store up sugar as a defensive mechanism that ultimately back-fires.  Our brains become pickled in sugar, similar to preserving apricots as jam. 
If you want to reverse or avoid “Alzheimer’s Syndrome” cut sugar out of your diet as much as possible, drink plenty of pure water, and encourage your liver and pancreas to recover their full functionality.  
The overall acidity, caused by oxygen depletion, also lends itself to chronic inflammatory responses.  The body “knows” that it is under stress and responds with hyperactive inflammatory responses that lead to chronic arthritis and similar ailments. 
Lack of oxygen messes with your body’s ability to metabolize fats, too, leading to chronic obesity.  
I have known this for many years now, so I have been a voice crying in the wilderness saying, “The reason we have elevated carbon dioxide levels is that we have depleted oxygen levels.  It’s messing with the carbon cycle!’ 
It’s also messing with the internal biosphere of our bodies. 
And it is no secret why we are suffering depleted oxygen levels.  Pollution of the oceans is leading to the death of oceanic flora and fauna on an unprecedented scale.  Reckless harvesting to the world’s forests is only adding to the problem.  
Perhaps the worst part of the pollution problem, however, is not being caused by cows farting or even by mechanized farming practices (which should be opposed with might and main) but by the proliferation of unnatural chemical substances, which companies like Bayer-Monsanto and Dow Chemical and all these pharmaceutical corporations gin up and unleash on the natural world without a backward glance. 
Now, they are even tinkering with our genome and creating atrocities like human-pig hybrids under laboratory conditions.  
Into this seething cauldron of misguided and politicized “science” comes a sensible therapy — one that offsets the effects of reduced atmospheric oxygen: 
As Doctor Kalker notes, this is not “bleach” we are talking about.  Chlorine dioxide therapy unleashes a chlorite ion that does two wonderful things: first, when encountering an acidic point source in the body, the chlorine is dispatched to neutralize it, and second, the oxygen is donated to the oxygen-starved red blood cells.  
This then leads to natural healing of the entire system.  The body comes back into balance and systems start working as they are intended to work again.  pH returns to normal.  Sugar and fats are properly metabolized again.  The electrochemistry of the body is restored, so chronic inflammation disappears. We are getting enough oxygen so we can think and function properly again. 
We need to pay attention to the facts, not the politics. We need to enforce the facts on the politicians and bring down the evil corporations that are polluting the natural world.  The sooner, the better.  
It’s so simple, it’s stupid simple.  We are living in a polluted, oxygen-depleted environment, so this chlorine dioxide therapy allows us to: (1) clean up and clear out the toxins caused by incomplete metabolism, and (2) increases the dissolved (available) oxygen content of our blood; this in turn corrects the imbalances that caused the problems in the first place. 
Every politician, every general, every diplomat, and every schoolchild on Earth needs to know these facts — and then, we all need to join together to put an end to the evil corporations that are destroying the Earth and our health along with it.
