  1. Pfizer is going to be better at marketing because they are pros at it. Also, it’s been in the news more because they were first to get EUA for adults, then more recently, first for teens. They also took a chance and asked for down to 16 with the adult EUA even without much data, so they have been the only one available for under 18. Moderna is given at a higher dose, though, and there is a perception that there are more symptoms after Moderna and that the dose may be the reason. Maybe that’s due to subtle marketing, too, but it is a higher dose. Today at the ACIP meeting discussing m
  2. While it seems that usually advice wouldn’t be based on one small trial, and while some in the medical community are using the drug, most medical specialist experts think the evidence is weak at this point. - I thought there was only one peer-reviewed meta study published in a good journal, this recent one.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34145166/ - Infectious Disease Society of America guidelines https://www.idsociety.org/practice-guideline/covid-19-guideline-treatment-and-management/ NIH has a similar statement. Now, whether YouTube should have a policy against doctors
  3. And this is what I wondered about when I looked at who he was. His main concern on social media seems to be that a Dr. Kariko is claiming that she invented mRNA vaccines and is being hailed as some kind of science underdog, when in fact she did not. He claims to have done some of the very early work and has his name on some patents. I don’t know if Wikipedia is a trustworthy source here. He has a number of publications and citations of rna and DNA research on his Google scholar page. Website https://www.rwmalonemd.com/mrna-vaccine-inventor He may well have been one of the early c
  4. I conceded that they aren’t censoring every mention of it, which makes any removals seem arbitrary. Just because you can find the Senate testimony doesn’t mean it wasn’t arbitrary censorship to remove in the first place. What do YouTube employees know about medicine or science? Probably very little. I am okay with them not allowing certain things: maybe they shouldn’t allow anyone who isn’t a professional to mention any medication. I don’t think pharmaceutical companies should have ever been allowed to do direct-to-consumer advertising. There are people on YouTube promoting all kind
  5. Well, the video of Dr. Kory testifying to the Senate on Ivermectin in the fall was removed by YouTube, and that was all it was, no commentary, no conspiracy theory. Since you haven’t listened to all of those videos you brought up, we don’t know what they say. I don’t know why certain things are censored; maybe the censoring algorithms are arbitrary, or maybe they search for certain phrases or only investigate when others flag them. I just looked and his larger group of doctors has a YouTube channel during which they presumably discuss these things, so it’s not clear to me how they decide t
  6. I’m in favor of it. My only criticism is that it seemed to come out of nowhere so that no one apparently had time to prepare to either close or plan additional celebrations or whatever.
  7. I know nothing about Bitchute, and I did not click on the link. However, I recognize the title of the podcast I believe Pen is referencing, because I have listened to part of it. You can also find the audio on any place other than YouTube that hosts podcasts. YouTube has censored the episode. A recent article by Matt Taiibi about this with an interview. https://taibbi.substack.com/p/meet-the-censored-bret-weinstein There is nothing right wing, neo-Nazi or hateful about the podcast or the episode, as far as I can tell. It has controversial subject matter in that it discusses
  8. I’m pretty sure that CDC says you don’t have to get revaccinated here if you are fully vaccinated with a WHO-approved vaccines. So NY State is out of bounds here.
  9. If enough people have read this and would like to discuss, a new thread might be good. I disagree with this assessment of the book. 🙂
  10. Yes, I think from the bolded that we are not having the same conversation. I am not sure what you are talking about in your first paragraph. The amount of crowding doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with reinfections. Again, the 76% is the initial estimate of infection from the “first wave” in Brazil. The initial paper was from another journal, but it is also mentioned in this journal article, and others, which was linked upthread, along with critique of this figure, and another study that showed only 14% previous infection. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PII
  11. MIS-C pathogenesis linked to “leaky gut.” Paper: https://www.jci.org/articles/view/149633 Article (fairly technical): https://www.news-medical.net/news/20210528/Loss-of-gut-epithelial-barrier-responsible-for-COVID-19-related-MIS-C-in-children-suggests-study.aspx Less technical article https://www.verywellhealth.com/lingering-covid-virus-in-the-gut-may-lead-to-mis-c-in-kids-5187049
  12. Is it really “common sense” though? I would think it is something that would need to be analyzed by the epidemiologists, and even then, it seems like it would be based on many hypothetical assumptions. I don’t agree that restricting travel to or from the US is simply a common sense issue. There must be so many implications to doing so. The nation isn’t locked up now and won’t be again. I do not believe US will do that. Lockdown, at least in the arbitrary ways the US did it, isn’t the norm for a public health reaction, and I hope that it doesn’t become so, at least not for this virus.
  13. Yuck, I really don’t like reading this, but thanks for sharing it.
