Data from Belgium reveal that patients with zinc and selenium deficiencies, especially those with comorbidities associated with worse COVID outcomes, had a higher risk of mortality and severe disease
Up to 1 billion worldwide may be deficient in selenium with symptoms that can include hair loss, fatigue, weight gain, immune system and cognitive decline
Zinc deficiency may affect up to 2 billion worldwide and may be responsible for more than 450,000 deaths every year in children younger than 5 years. Signs of deficiency may include, weak immunity, lack of appetite, hair loss, acne and a loss of taste and smell
The role of zinc in the fight against coronaviruses has been known since at least 2010; zinc requires help getting into the cell to fight viruses. Although hydroxychloroquine is effective, new data show quercetin may have the same function, while being less expensive and more easily obtained
Choose foods high in zinc and selenium, including pasture-raised beef or chicken, pasture-raised eggs, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts and sardines
Bill Gates is the multibillionaire founder of Microsoft, whose net worth as of 2/19/2017 is estimated to be a mind-boggling $85.6 billion.
Via his eponymous foundation, Gates is also famous for his philanthropy, a word that the dictionary defines as “the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.”
One of the funding outlets of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are vaccines for poor people in the Third World. From the Cambridge Dictionary:
Vaccine is a substance containing a virus or bacterium in a form that is not harmful, given to a person or animal to prevent them from getting the disease that the virus or bacterium causes.
Note that nowhere in the definition does it say vaccines are also a form of birth control or contraception.
So it’s most curious that in his speech on how to reduce global warming at the 2010 TED conference, Gates touted vaccines as a means to reduce the world’s population by as much as 10-15%. He said:
“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a REALLY great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health service, we could lower that by perhaps 10 to 15 percent.”
New study finds link between child vaccination and autism – CENSORED
Posted on December 2, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn
The much-maligned anti-vaccine movement is fueled, in good part, by parents’ suspicion that childhood vaccination causes autism.
The clinical term is Autism Spectrum Disorder: a developmental disability that ranges from mild disabilities of speech and language impairments, to serious developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy and autism.
Indeed, the statistical data confirm that autism is on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
In 2000, 1 in 150 children were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
In 2012, the number of children with ASD increased to 1 in 68.
ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys (1 in 42) than among girls (1 in 189).
Now, a new study of 666 home-schooled children has confirmed that there is an association between childhood vaccination and autism.
The study is a survey (questionnaire) of 415 mothers who are members of home-school organizations in 4 states: Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon. The mothers were asked whether their children had been vaccinated, and about the children’s health conditions. Among the health conditions are neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability.
But if you go to the article’s link (http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270), you will not find it. Instead, you ‘ll get this message:

Article 231518 is not yet publicly available.
That means the journal pulled the article, which, unless it was for a legitimate reason (e.g., research errors), is a form of post-publication censorship.
Study: Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports
Background: Vaccinations have prevented millions of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among US children. Yet the long-term health outcomes of the routine vaccination program remain unknown. Studies have been recommended by the Institute of Medicine to address this question.
Specific Aims: To compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children on a broad range of health outcomes, and to determine whether an association found between vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), if any, remains significant after adjustment for other measured factors.
Design: A cross-sectional survey of mothers of children educated at home.
Methods: Homeschool organizations in four states (Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon) were asked to forward an email to their members, requesting mothers to complete an anonymous online questionnaire on the vaccination status and health outcomes of their biological children ages 6 to 12.
Results: A total of 415 mothers provided data on 666 children, of which 261 (39%) were unvaccinated. Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and NDDs (defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability). After adjustment, the factors that remained significantly associated with NDD were vaccination (OR 3.1, 95% CI: 1.4, 6.8), male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.3), and preterm birth (OR 5.0, 95% CI: 2.3, 11.6). In a final adjusted model, vaccination but not preterm birth remained associated with NDD, while the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination was associated with a 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8, 15.5).
Conclusions: In this study based on mothers’ reports, the vaccinated had a higher rate of allergies and NDD than the unvaccinated. Vaccination, but not preterm birth, remained significantly associated with NDD after controlling for other factors. However, preterm birth combined with vaccination was associated with an apparent synergistic increase in the odds of NDD. Further research involving larger, independent samples is needed to verify and understand these unexpected findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines on children’s health.

Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD is a Danish medical researcher, and leader of the Nordic Cochrane Center at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has written numerous reviews within the Cochrane collaboration.
Dr.Gøtzsche has been critical of screening for breast cancer using mammography, arguing that it cannot be justified; His critique stems from a meta-analysis he did on mammography screening studies and published as Is screening for breast cancer with mammography justifiable? in The Lancet in 2000. In it he discarded 6 out of 8 studies arguing their randomization was inadequate.
In 2006 a paper by Gøtzsche on mammography screening was electronically published in the European Journal of Cancer ahead of print. The journal later removed the paper completely from the journal website without any formal retraction. The paper was later published in Danish Medical Bulletin with a short note from the editor, and Gøtzsche and his coauthors commented on the unilateral retraction that the authors were not involved in.
In 2012 his book Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy was published. In 2013 his book Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How Big Pharma has Corrupted Healthcare was published.
The book is comprehensive, with worldwide examples across many categories of drugs of how the pharmaceutical industry operates. It describes the history of the pharmaceutical industry well, and is current, with references from 2013. The comprehensive attack on the largest drug companies is scathing, and it provokes physicians to be more cautious about prescribing. But most important, it shows us that evidence-based medicine and guidelines have been hijacked, as the evidence base has been systematically distorted.11,12 Consequently, we must rethink which evidence and which recommendations we should use to help our patients. A helpful start is the Public Citizen approach of not using any new drug until it is 7 years old.13
The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate. The evidence of adverse events following immunisation with the MMR vaccine cannot be separated from its role in preventing the target diseases.
