I raise cattle, and ivermectin is a common dewormer and fly suppressant for use in them. I had a HELLUVA time down here in the South finding any locally for awhile. People were going to farm supply stores and just buying them out. Now, if there was an anti-viral component to ivermectin, you'd think the drug companies, who have been using the stuff in humans and animals since 1975, would have discovered it long ago.Totally and absolutely. I had read this article on a few sites recently. Basically, the authors of a report on the use of Ivermectin to help with Covid19 just pulled it from publication, Basically the results seemed to have no relationship to the raw data.
The preprint endorsing ivermectin as a coronavirus therapy has been widely cited, but independent researchers find glaring discrepancies in the datawww.theguardian.com
Well, she has a point. If 80% of the population was VACCINATED, hardly anyone would die. That is science. But are she and her ilk helping in that effort? Hell no. But maybe that's for the best..."...America, nobody needs to die." says Dr. Stella Immanuel
This says it all!
Very poor choice of words, and for a "Dr." that is a very very bad thing.
We humans think in and with words, if one can not clearly speak one probably can not cogently think! I'm guessing she means nobody needs to die of Covid but one should never ever have to guess what a Doctor means.
"come on man!"
Not only as opposed to media, but as opposed to various leaders, charlatans and quacks who have come forward with outlandish claims. Or who have intentionally held back on supplying vitally needed, valid information to serve their own goals. These are the people who are killing folks, as surely as if they had fired a gun.Ground yourself in the science - what it says and what it DOESN"T say, as opposed to media.
Key words: in vitro. For those unfamiliar that means in a test tube. Pouring gasoline into a test tube will destroy viruses, too. Ready for your shot of high octane? Let's not mislead; let's be scientifically valid about what actually works in the body. Ivermectin has been in use since the 1970s, and if it had in vivio (in body) efficacy, we'd know about it. But the scientific truth of the matter is, in vivio, it has not been scientifically shown to be effective. Had it been, after around 50 years of continuous use, we'd know that and it would be used. There are literally millions of compounds that work in vitro against viruses. The question is, do they work in the body? Most do not.Without in any way supporting this particular quack, I can tell you that the antiviral properties of ivermectin have been studied for a number of years. There are valid in-vitro studies with data to indicate its potential effectiveness against RNA viruses - and they are not at all to the prime-time stage of actual use in humans for this purpose. First came to my attention with West Nile Virus years ago (both scientific properties and the quacks extrapolating too much from them). Now, a quick google scholar search shows the results almost 100% around COVID studies. No surprise.
