COVID-19 Briefing: Current Quarantine Approach Is Wrong, Based on Science

important information:  Current Quarantine Approach IS Wrong Based on Science | Dr Erickson & Dr Massihi Pt1

This Youtube video, though lengthy, is worth the time. It puts into perspective the CoVid-19 pandemic as compared to recent influenza outbreaks in the United States.  It gives reasons why the country should be opened, now that better data is available, rather than initial academic models. Previous quarantines isolated the sick and vulnerable, not the healthy population at large. If current data had been available in the beginning, there probably would never have been a shut down of schools, group activities and the economy. Rather, there would have been an emphasis on protecting the elderly and infirm along with common sense hygiene measures.

NOTE: Part 2 was removed from Youtube for “violating community standards.” Meaning, there were political views that did not agree with the Youtube algorithm, which favors a leftist view.

97% of antibiotics are made in China ‘supply chain Armageddon’ — Principia Scientific International

Roughly five months before the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) reared its ugly head, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission held a hearing about America’s growing reliance on Chinese pharmaceuticals. And one of the things discussed – or perhaps admitted, depending on how you look at it – is the fact that a shocking 97 percent of all antibiotics…

The Intellectual and Moral Decline in Academic Research — The Wentworth Report

The Intellectual and Moral Decline in Academic Research, by Edward Archer. My experiences at four research universities and as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research fellow taught me that the relentless pursuit of taxpayer funding has eliminated curiosity, basic competence, and scientific integrity in many fields. Yet, more importantly, training in “science” is now […]

Latest EPA science transparency proposal leaked to NYTimes; Key air quality junk science to be banned unless data is made public — JunkScience.com

Here it is. Please review and send me your thoughts. Supposedly this is what will be sent to the White House for review and approval. This is my favorite part so far: If true, this would mean the the Harvard Six City and Pope ACS studies are history and won’t be used by EPA again.…

EPA is cleaning up its act with new, science-based, transparent data that can be verified and replicated by independent researchers. No one should object to better data methods unless they want to block advances in science or support embedded myths of environmentalism. The Harvard Six City study was begun in 1974 and followed participants for 15 years. It used questionnaire type surveys of participants and followed up with spirometry testing and death dates/causes.  Death rate only varied by 2 years for most and least polluted cities, which could be a statistical fluke.  It has been 40 years since the study was ended, so confidentiality should not be a problem, except to redact names.

This new proposed ruling by the EPA, along with ending the Linear No Threshhold method of risk determination should be celebrated in the scientific and medical communities. It means more research, not less, and more accurate data overall.
