Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
A fiasco in the making? As the coronavirus pandemic takes hold, we are making decisions without reliable data The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco. At a time when everyone needs better information, from disease modelers and governments to people quarantined or just social distancing, we lack reliable evidence on how many people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 or who continue to become infected. Better information is needed to guide decisions and actions of monumental significance and to monitor their impact. Draconian countermeasures have been adopted in many countries. If the pandemic dissipates — either on its own or because of these measures — short-term extreme social distancing and lockdowns may be bearable. How long, though, should measures like these be continued if the pandemic churns across the globe unabated? How can policymakers tell if they are doing more good than harm? Vaccines or affordable treatments take many months (or even years) to develop and test properly. Given such timelines, the consequences of long-term lockdowns are entirely unknown.

COVID-19, Pneumonia & Inflammasomes – The Melatonin Connection On March 11th, 2020 during a media briefing, the World Health Organizati\aon (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic as confirmed COVID-19 cases outside of China increased 13-fold and the number of countries affected tripled. On that day, 126,000 people around the world contracted COVID-19, while 122 countries around the world reported COVID-19 infections . Even though cases in China and South Korea have declined dramatically, those in Italy and Iran have been rising relentlessly. Italy has the most cases outside China with roughly 12,462 infections, followed by Iran with 9,000 infections and South Korea with 7,775 (March 11th, 2020). COVID-19 patients in Italy also have the highest case fatality rate, currently at 6.6% .
Selenium Attenuates Staphylococcus aureus Mastitis in Mice by Inhibiting the Activation of the NALP3 Inflammasome and NF-κB/MAPK Pathway Mastitis is one of the most important diseases affecting the dairy industry in the world, and it also poses a great threat to human food safety. In this study, we explored whether selenium can inhibit the activation of the NALP3 inflammasome and NF-κB/MAPK pathway to achieve anti-inflammatory effects. Sixty BALB/c female mice were randomly divided into three groups according to diets of different selenium concentrations (high, normal, and low). After 90 days, mice fed the same selenium concentration were randomly divided into two smaller groups, one of which was inoculated with Staphylococcus aureus and the other injected with saline as a control. Through histopathologic examination staining, western blot, qPCR, and ELISA, the results showed that with increasing selenium concentrations, the expression levels of IL-1β, TNF-α, NALP3, caspase-1, and ASC were decreased in mouse mammary tissue. Therefore, this study revealed that selenium can attenuate S. aureus mastitis by inhibiting the activation of the NALP3 inflammasome and NF-κB/MAPK pathway.
Disease Has An Enemy – Its Name Is Selenium Are you concerned about getting cancer or any other life-threatening disease in your lifetime? Do you have a serious health challenge you’re dealing with but don’t know what to do naturally to help? Like millions, you probably take a handful of pills or capsules every day hoping to better your chances for survival and live longer. While there are many excellent products and essential nutrients to choose from that can definitely do great things for your health, none holds more promise for prevention and protec- tion than the trace mineral selenium. According to Barr, “…hands down selenium is unequivocally the most protective of all nutrients.”
In our last issue of CRUSADOR (Issue 36 May/June), we ran one of the best interviews we’ve ever published with Christopher Barr on the trace mineral chromium in a food grown state. In that interview, Barr stated that “the trace mineral chromium is the single most important nutrient discovered to date.” Everyone needs chromium because it is the most important nutrient required for blood sugar metabolism and al- most everyone is deficient in it.
In this very educational interview about selenium, you will be just as enlightened and encouraged as you discover what selenium can do for preventing disease and protecting your health.

GTF Chromium, or Glucose Tolerance Factor Chromium, is the biologically active form of chromium in the body. Other than in the body, GTF chromium is found only in foods. There have been many attempts to isolate or synthesize GTF chromium; none have been successful. It has been proposed that GTF chromium is a complex of chromium, nicotinic acid and possibly the amino acids glycine, cysteine and glutamic acid. GTF chromium works closely with insulin to facilitate the uptake of glucose into cells. In individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, such as those with diabetes, hypoglycemia and obesity, supplementation with GTF chromium, the bioactive form, is of paramount importance. The utilization of GTF chromium from True Active™ FoodState® is further enhanced by the inclusion of the mineral-rich foods rice bran, kelp and dulse.
Among its functions in the physiology, selenium plays an important role in antioxidant function through the protection of cell membranes, and supports healthy functioning of the immune system and thyroid gland. This select formulation is further enhanced by the inclusion of organic botanical and organic whole food blends, a specialized immune blend, and plant-sourced enzymes. Selenium by Innate is designed to provide the synergy to support selenium’s role in the body. The primary function of Selenium is as a component of the vital antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, working with vitamin E to prevent free radical damage to cells. The levels of selenium in the soil directly effect the levels in food.*

Attack of the “Corona Bat Virus!” What Science REALLY Says About It! When people KNOW there’s a problem, (and may have had a part in creating it), they’ll lie like crazy. No conspiracy theory necessary. It’s just human nature. Am I right? Which is why your beloved attorney turned science teacher, turned virus hunter, has been relatively quiet these past few weeks. I just haven’t known what to say because I hadn’t run across any REALLY GOOD INFORMATION that I felt supported my suspicion that this virus was created by humans and escaped(?) from a lab. Then I ran across an article which appeared in Nature on November 12, 2015 by Declan Butler with the title, Engineered Bat Virus Stirs Debate Over Risky Research. Here’s the link: www.nature.com/news/engineered-bat-virus-stirs-debate-over-risky-research-1.18787 “An experiment that created a hybrid version of a bat coronavirus – one related to the virus that causes SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) – has triggered renewed debate over whether engineering lab variants of viruses with possible pandemic potential is worth the risks. In an article published in Nature Medicine on 9 November, scientists investigated a virus called SHC014, which is found in horseshoe bats in China. The researchers created a chimaeric virus, made up of a surface protein of SHC014 and the backbone of a SARS virus that had been adapted to grow in mice and to mimic human disease. The chimaera infected human airway cells – proving that the surface protein of SHC014 has the necessary structure to bind to a key receptor on the cells and to infect them. It also caused disease in mice, but did not kill them.”
Questions of The Day!
Dear Mr. Bell,
I have seen the instruction video on youtube using colloidal silver with a omron nebulizer. Like to ask if a Omron c803 nebulizer Could be used, this device uses a hose between the mouthpiece and device, and am not sure if colloidal silver liquid can be used this way. The c803 is on amazon.nl i live in The Netherlands.
Also there Omron c102 but with nasal inhalation. logically Nasal protection seems better for we inhale through our noses and seems better against coronaviruses.
Which one shall i buy or none? Thanks, Robby
Dave Stetzerizer is the inventer of the Stetzer filters,the filters are designed to remove dirty electricity. My question is – is removing dirty electricity the same as removing E.M.F.? I tried contacting Dave several times, no response
Thank you Bill
Top Herbs and Vegetables You Can Easily Grow at Home All Year Round As the coronavirus spreads across the United States, countless families are preparing to hunker down for what could be an indefinite amount of time. Whether it’s because of orders to “shelter-in-place,” self-quarantine, or simply our own conscience telling us it’s the right thing to do for the public good, many of us are preparing for a long stay at home. With store shelves being stripped bare by panicked shoppers and many of our work hours—if not our entire jobs—being cut back due to the crisis, food security has suddenly become an issue, not only for our households but for our communities as well. Because of this, home gardening could likely make a big comeback. Just as past generations of Americans responded to World Wars I & II with “victory gardens” at home, current generations could be set to revive the practice of planting, harvesting, and eating our own food. If anything, CoViD-19 could help us become reacquainted with some better habits when it comes to not just hygiene but general nutrition and self-sufficiency. Here are just a few plants that can easily be grown in a small apartment or home.
