Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings The shielding approach aims to reduce the number of severe COVID-19 cases by limiting contact between individuals at higher risk of developing severe disease (“high-risk”) and the general population (“low-risk”). High-risk individuals would be temporarily relocated to safe or “green zones” established at the household, neighborhood, camp/sector or community level depending on the context and setting. They would have minimal contact with family members and other low-risk residents. Current evidence indicates that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. In most humanitarian settings, older population groups make up a small percentage of the total population. For this reason, the shielding approach suggests physically separating high-risk individuals from the general population to prioritize the use of the limited available resources and avoid implementing long-term containment measures among the general population. In theory, shielding may serve its objective to protect high-risk populations from disease and death. However, implementation of the approach necessitates strict adherence, to protocol. Inadvertent introduction of the virus into a green zone may result in rapid transmission among the most vulnerable populations the approach is trying to protect. A summary of the shielding approach described by Favas is shown in Table 1. See Guidance for the prevention of COVID-19 infections among high-risk individuals in low-resource, displaced and camp and camp-like settings for full details.

Why Is Hydrogen Water So Important?
In each of our bodies, we have cell damaging activity happening on a daily basis. This is something that neither you nor I can stop from occurring in the body. But it is something we can battle with hydrogen.
A by-product of the ATP production process or fuel generation process in the cell is the creation of oxidative stress. This is a part of life and can’t be helped. When this process goes unchecked, then the body is unable to balance the damage being done on a cellular basis.
It’s kind of like if the police decided to go on vacation and never come back, chaos and crime would terrorize the city…. Sadly this happens too often in our bodies where the oxidative stress is left unchecked and able to run rampant in our bodies.
Due to our physiological design, our bodies should be able to fight this naturally. However, We have disrupted and damaged this process to the point of no return in many individuals. With the pollutants in our environments, misunderstood dieting, poor water quality, and excess stress in our lives, cancer and disease is increasingly on the rise.
It’s an epidemic.
The Solution: Hydrogen Water
Luckily, we have taken the time, spent the money, and found the solution. The body fights oxidative
stress with hydrogen. After studying the body and how it tries to fight oxidative stress with hydrogen, we found that it did so through a special and unique relationship with bacteria in the gut and body. This special microflora or bacteria creates hydrogen as a byproduct of fermentation and food breakdown inside the gut. Instead of reinventing the wheel and trying to find a new version of this, we came up with a way to create hydrogen and dissolve it into water for easier access to the body.
We call it, Echo® H2 Water.
As you drink our water, you are flooding the body with millions upon millions of molecules of hydrogen each day. You are providing the body with the tools necessary to combat oxidative stress and get the body back into balance. This is the ultimate solution in hydration and oxidative stress combat.
PFAS: These ‘forever chemicals’ are highly toxic, under-studied, and largely unregulated Per-/poly-fluroalkyl substances, or PFAS, are everywhere. They are used in firefighting foam, car wax, and even fast-food wrappers. They’re one of the most toxic substances ever identified — harmful at concentrations in the parts per trillion — yet very little is known about them. PFAS, which is a class of over 3000 compounds, are only regulated at the state level, so while some states are working to aggressively tackle the problem, other states have chosen to ignore PFAS completely, leaving concentrations unknown and health risks unexplored. This topic will be discussed at the Geological Society of America’s 2020 Annual Meeting, in a technical session which will help bring PFAS to national attention. Presentations will discuss how PFAS are released into the environment, transported through groundwater, river, and soils, and partially remediated. PFAS have been produced in the U.S. for decades, primarily for industrial use. Matt Reeves, a professor at Western Michigan University and lead author of one of the presentations, says PFAS have been labelled “forever chemicals” because they have bonds that are “among the strongest in all of chemistry.” “It’s almost like armor…we don’t have any evidence of degradation of these compounds,” he says.
Hour 2 Special Guest – Toni Taylor
North Carolina Citizens Defy Proposed Mandatory Mask Law – City Council Stunned by Turn Out Backs Down Waynesville leaders backed down from a proposed local mask mandate Tuesday night after nearly 100 people packed town hall to voice their opposition. Tensions rose before the meeting ever began when the assembled crowd — who were being held in the lobby until the doors opened — learned there wasn’t going to be enough room for them all in the town board room. Those wishing to speak were told to fill out forms and wait until their name was called. This didn’t sit well with many in the crowd, who demanded the meeting be moved to the sidewalk outside so that everyone could see and hear it — touching off a loud chant of “Take it outside.” Town staff and police officers eventually quelled the crowd and convinced them that waiting for their turn to speak was the only option. Another uprising ensued after the waiting crowd was told they couldn’t come in without a mask when their turn rolled around. The vast majority weren’t wearing a mask, given the whole reason they were there in the first place was to speak against the proposed mask mandate. Some claimed exemptions for religious and health reasons, but others simply said they weren’t going to wear one and it would violate their rights to be denied entry to a public hearing on that grounds. In the end, masks were offered but not compulsory. The mezzanine outside the town board room, which was packed shoulder to shoulder, well exceeded the fire code capacity. But attempts to disperse some of the waiting crowd to the main lobby downstairs was likewise abandoned as fruitless.
Questions of The Day!
Is it true that our entire body utilizes iodine, not just the thyroid? If so, how much iodine do we need a day? Can we get all we need from the food we eat, or do we need to supplement? If we need to supplement, what form do you recommend?
Hi, I was wondering if there are any homeopathic remedies that could help my friend? He had TB 10 years ago. He gets along pretty well, but can get winded easily. Is there anything he could take to build his lungs back up? Maybe silica also? I’ve asked NAD and NAN about Lobelia and nebuilizing silver and am awaiting their answer. Do you think these would be beneficial a daily basis? Or only if he got sick with something like pneumonia or bronchitis.
Second coronavirus stockpiling wave expected As winter encroaches, more than half of U.S. consumers are considering replenishing their assortment of goods and essential products that they had originally stockpiled during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. Research firm Inmar Intelligence says when the pandemic hit the U.S. in March, 64% of shoppers created a stockpile of products as a result. Now, 57% of shoppers are considering restocking due to growing fears of a “potential second wave of COVID-19,” which could lead to another round of bare store shelves. And 27%, are considering revamping their winter stockpile due to concerns that certain products won’t be in stock when they need them. And 27% are more concerned about the safety of in-store shopping if a second wave were to occur. Hygiene products topped shoppers’ stockpile lists again, with 67% grabbing toilet paper and 57% searching for hand sanitizer — both of which were in high demand in the early stages of the pandemic, and left store shelves empty and online retailers charging sky-high prices.
