Friday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Not Wearing A Mask Is Like Smoking Near A Pregnant Woman Here’s the truth and tragedy of Covid-19: You might kill someone and never know. Asymptomatic transmission means that you can spread Coronavirus without symptoms when droplets containing virus particles are expelled in an aerosol — not only via obvious signs of sickness such as coughing or sneezing, but also by talking or even breathing. That’s why masks probably help slow the spread of disease. There are various reasons why many people don’t wear masks. Some are driven by arguments supporting personal freedom — a motivation central to the ‘mask debate’ — whereas others are due to a lack of knowledge. Part of the problem is that the concept of being an asymptomatic carrier of disease is hard to grasp, and leads to the “But I’m not sick!” argument against needing a mask.
Berlin police brace for virus protest as court overturns ban Police in Berlin on Friday requested thousands of reinforcements from other parts of Germany to cope with planned protests over the weekend by people opposed to the country’s coronavirus restrictions. Authorities in the German capital had banned the protests earlier this week, citing demonstrations a few weeks ago during which participants flouted rules on social distancing and mask-wearing. Germany has seen a rise in the number of virus infections in recent weeks and officials had expressed concern that protesters might contribute to the spread of coronavirus during their rallies and while traveling to and from Berlin. Germany has been widely praised for its handling of the pandemic through robust testing and contact tracing and has seen far less drastic pandemic-related restrictions than other European countries such as France, Italy or Spain. Its confirmed virus-related death toll of 9,291 is one-fourth of Britain’s toll, although experts say all numbers understate the true impact of the pandemic due to various factors.
Science Is Not About Consensus Newsflash; real science is based on facts not “consensus”. I’m sick and tired of idiots beating me over the head with pseudoscience instead of sticking to the cold, hard facts. Show me the hard data that standing six feet from someone is necessary. Show me the hard data that wearing any old rag on my face is going to materially stop the spread of a virus. Show me the hard data that enjoying fresh air and sunshine outdoors could be an invitation to an early death. Please, stick to the facts and don’t dare lecture me about the “consensus” and here’s why. Maybe you’ve heard of Ignaz Semmelweis, an Austrian-Hungarian obstetrician with a prickly personality. If not, you will quickly recognize his contribution to the medical profession with the three words he made famous: “Wash your hands.” This was way back in 1847. Dr. Semmelweis provided hard data clearly demonstrating that once he and his staff began washing their hands and disinfecting equipment between patients the number of infections and deaths dropped dramatically.
Special Guest – KC Craichy!
KC is Founder and CEO of LivingFuel, Inc., a leading distributor of superfood nutrition, and author of the best-selling book SuperHealth – 7 Golden Keys to Unlock Lifelong Vitality and his most recent book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!. Through his work, products and teaching, KC is on a mission to change lives.
The inspiration for success began with past health challenges of KC’s wife, Monica, former Miss Florida and Miss Florida USA, who looked like the model of health on the outside but on the inside it was a different story. KC also had early struggles of being overweight and out of shape. Monica’s experiences of anxiety, fear, panic and depression more than 14 years ago and the futility of conventional medical approaches (drugs, psychotherapy) led KC to vow to find an answer. Through years of research and trial and error, Monica has gained back complete health and her vibrancy. Monica has not taken any medication since deciding to find the answer and today she and KC have five wonderful children.
KC wrestled with a challenge of his own: he was overweight. In high school, he discovered the power of proper nutrition which led to a life of research and understanding. He began to unlock the keys to maximum performance and metabolism and since has spent his adult life as a health-conscious athlete, forging a vision to develop a new approach to healthy living. It’s a simple, no-nonsense strategy that aims to help people of any age look, feel and live better.
Viral Pandemic: A Review of Integrative Medicine Treatment Considerations On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, stating there were over 118,000 cases in more than 110 countries and territories around the world. As of August 4, 2020, the WHO reported that there were 18.3 million confirmed cases with over 696,000 deaths. With great controversy over feasible treatment modalities for COVID-19, we conducted a literature review of publicly available information to summarize knowledge about various potential integrative medicine treatment options. These options include, among others, vitamin C, zinc, and zinc ionophores like Hydroxycholorquine, vitamins D3 and A, iodine, selenium, NAC, glutathione, melatonin and fibrinolytic enzymes. In this literature review, the treatment modality, immune responses, effectiveness and treatment recommendations are all reviewed with the intent of providing practitioners with applicable information to effectively treat their patients. Also, since there are various environmental factors that weaken immunity and otherwise predispose to COVID-19 illness, those factors are described here so that they can be systematically identified and resolved as much as feasible. Most skilled integrative practitioners have found that taking the environmental “load” off the patient improves the outcome in infectious illnesses.
COVID: Taxpayers Invest in Pharma Profits Taxpayers are shelling out billions for drugs that don’t work. This has to stop. Action Alert! A recent exposé in Rolling Stone magazine details how Big Pharma companies are making out like bandits during this pandemic. The details highlight some of the worst aspects of our crony medical system that ensures Americans keep taking drugs that are expensive, dangerous, and often don’t work. Government regulators then eliminate the competition by gagging information about safe, affordable, natural medicines. We need your help to put an end to this corruption. Remdesivir is the perfect case study. This drug, developed with $99 million of taxpayer money from the federal government, failed to get approved as a treatment for hepatitis and Ebola, yet it has been “pulled off the scrap heap,” in the words of one Congressman, to become a huge money-maker. It costs a reported $10 of raw materials to make each dose of Remdesivir, and generic versions are already being made in Bangladesh for $600 a course. Gilead, Remdesivir’s manufacturer, sells the drug to other governments around the world for $2,340 a course. And the price for US patients? $3,120 per course. Recall that the drug doesn’t have a significant effect on mortality.
We’ve Spent a TRILLION Dollars on Statins to Lower Cholesterol, yet Cardiovascular Deaths have gone UP New research shows that the most widely prescribed type of drug in the history of medicine is a waste of money. One major study found that the more ‘bad’ cholesterol was lowered, the greater the risk of heart attacks and strokes. In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, almost every other medical condition has been shoved onto the sidelines. However, in the UK last year, heart attacks and strokes (CVD) killed well over 100,000 people – which is at least twice as many as have died from Covid-19. CVD will kill just as many this year, which makes it significantly more important than Covid-19, even if no one is paying much attention to it right now. So, it is good to see that research goes on, and papers are still being published. One of the most significant, and of great interest to me personally, was a critical examination of the benefits of lowering cholesterol. This was published on August 4. The paper was called ‘Hit or miss: the new cholesterol targets,’ and it came out in Evidence Based Medicine, one of the key titles that sits under the umbrella of British Medical Journal publishing.
Special Guest: Dr. Janet Levatin, M.D.
Dr. Janet is a pediatrician and homeopathic physician who was in private practice in the Boston, Massachusetts area for almost 25 years prior to joining our center.Dr. Levatin attended college at the University of Rochester (NY), and medical school at George Washington University School of Medicine. She completed a pediatric internship and residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1986.Throughout her training, Dr. Janet disagreed with much of what she observed in conventional medical practice, including overuse of medications, unwholesome hospital nutrition, and virtually nonexistent methods for true prevention and health promotion. Since seeing more than one case of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) after infant vaccination in the 1980s, she has been an outspoken physician against the over-vaccination of children.
Masks Don’t Work: A Review of Science Relevant to COVID-19 Social Policy Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles. Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.
Should you need an “exemption” to say no to a mask or a vaccine?? In these times of mask mandates, saying no to unwanted mask usage has become difficult. If you say no to vaccines, or chemotherapy, or statin drugs… or any medical procedure or intervention you don’t agree to… no one knows as you walk down the street or browse in a shop; as you go to school or enjoy a day at the beach; or as you attend a movie, play, or concert. It is your private business unless you choose to share it with others. If people knew you had not received vaccines or were a full-fledged “anti-vaxxer,” a lot of hatred would probably be directed at you. While there are many who are aware of the dangers associated with vaccines, there are still many who buy into the party line that vaccines are safe and effective and, further, that it is everyone’s duty to society to be vaccinated. After all, it’s not only for YOUR health, but also the for health and safety of others (or so they would have us believe). Mask orders and mandates have completely changed these dynamics. You may be one of the people who knows there is no science documenting that healthy people wearing masks does anything to stop the spread of viruses. You may even know that wearing masks can increase or induce a variety of medical and psychological problems.

If you are making this choice, you may experience exclusion, derogation, and possibly even violent, aggressive acts.
