Quebec is under curfew again. Restaurants and gyms are closed, and our children’s return to school delayed.
Some days, like today, I feel like I am the only person who hasn’t learnt anything new and significant about Covid these past 2 years. I am still guilty of repeating the same stuff that I spoke and wrote about as early as January of 2020.
For example, before there was even any discussion about developing a vaccine, I wrote that “hoping for a vaccine for coronaviruses has proven to be an exercise in futility. This is because the viruses mutate very quickly…”
Perhaps this is why even restaurants requiring a vaccine passport to enter are now shutdown, again.
Almost 2 years ago I also wrote:
“Children are generally not suffering from the coronavirus. This is most likely due to their stronger innate immune systems, allowing them to fight off infections with relative ease compared to the older and sicker population.”
Despite lots of fear mongering to create nervous and anxious parents, not a single shred of evidence has shown our children to be in any real danger. It’s just one more fact that has consistently held true from day 1. But yet I felt the need to publish several more articles to help calm down parents every time a new variant was falsely declared a danger to children.
In April of 2020 I wrote that the draconian lockdowns would harm many people and lead to more deaths. And exactly one year later I published an article, entitled “One size fits all Covid-19 measures lead to more deaths in younger people”, showing how these predictions had unfortunately come true.
From the very start of the pandemic, a time where misleading infection fatality rates were being thrown around carelessly, I repeated that misrepresenting evidence would lead the public to lose faith in science itself. Correcting poor interpretations of data was a constant theme of mine. For example, my video entitled “Covid-19 Vaccines: The Misrepresentation of Science” explained how the jab was never truly shown to be “95% effective” as falsely advertised by vaccine manufacturers. Over a year later, real world data leaves no room for argument there either.
I also relentlessly advocated that we turn to real health measures, and published a two part article on immunosenescence – highlighting the clear scientific evidence that a proper plant-based diet along with exercise can defeat Covid-19. The first part was published in May of 2020, and exactly a year later more Covid-19 studies emerged confirming my conclusions.
I would go on were it not for my being fed up with hearing myself repeating the same things, over and over again. At least the “media experts” flip flop and keep things interesting, never fazed by the amount of times they get it wrong.
But here I am, again, questioning myself. They say that “experts” and politicians are doing the best they can with the data available to them at any given time, and so we have to cut them some slack. Yet all of the data I’ve looked at, from day 1, has continued to be incredibly consistent.
So here it is again…
Our disproportionate focus on lockdowns, curfews, face masks, and waiting for vaccines to save us is a death sentence for many people, both young and old. This is now an indisputable fact that no longer needs debating. It is time to come together and have a better dialogue, and to push our politicians to invest in eliminating the vulnerabilities that have plagued our health care system for years.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the greatest contribution you can make to defeat Covid-19 is to improve your own health. Public health experts that have not continually encouraged people to eat more nutritious food and to exercise, especially during the pandemic, are not deserving of their title. The evidence clearly shows that a healthier, active, and leaner population will withstand and defeat a pandemic better than a community of overweight and sedentary people. And THAT is the most important narrative.
Have I not learnt a single thing in two years?
