A few more words for anyone who takes what SteveW says seriously. He says “ suppressing information on CHEAP alternative treatments for COVID such as Ivermectin/HCQ, hiding the fact that foetal tissue was used in the development of the vaccines, suppressing the knowledge that natural remedies exist to treat numerous ailments including cancer, to mention a few!” 1) Early on there were OBSERVATIONAL studies that appeared to show that HCQ worked. They were uncontrolled and poorly done. Two better RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED trials came out (one in New England Journal and another in Annals of Internal Medicine) that showed it had no effect. 2) The Cochrane review (famous for pooling medical data and doing meta-analysis) has looked at 14 available studies (pooled all data) and concluded that there was no benefit. They did acknowledge that the studies were not all that well done however. The point still stands, that there is no evidence (other than anecdotal evidence) for its efficacy. 3) There is no good clinical evidence for “natural remedies”. If you have peer reviewed published clinical trials to prove otherwise, please provide your references. 4) The “ foetal tissue” you cite is a cell line that has been propagated from the 60’s. It is of uncertain origin (miscarriage? Abortion?). Whatever the source, there is no ongoing harvesting of new stem cells. Further, the mRNA vaccines do not use it in their vaccine production. In summary, SteveW seems to be long on opinion and short on facts. And that makes him just plain dangerous.

While greed in and of itself is not good, the motivation for profit is not necessarily in opposition to doing good; they can have symbiotic relationship of sorts. Once upon a time, when prisoners were being shipped from England to Australia the attrition rate was ghastly. This caused great social outcry which resulted in very little change in the death rate. Then it was decided that the ship owners would not get paid for those that got onboard the ship, but for those that got off the ship in Australia. The result—suddenly the death rate on the ships plummeted. The profit motive brought about a greater good. And the profit motive in the pharmaceutical industry has brought about much good as well. For example, the death rate of children with leukemia has plummeted with with the help of pharmaceutics. Now as to the comments by Steve W, they simply have no basis in reality. He like so many others makes statements without giving credible sources. Fact: Almost all people who are hospitalized and dying of COVID are unvaccinated. ALL drugs come with costs and benefits. If you take an antibiotic for say pneumonia (which used to kill many people), you will most likely survive. You may also get diarrhea, or you might have a very bad or even life threatening allergic reaction. But most people weigh the benefits against the risks and take the antibiotic. It is the same with the vaccine; Yes, in a small fraction of the population there can be bad side effects (the mRNA vaccines can produce myocarditis in a small number of people—which mostly resolves without harm; the J & J vaccine can cause blood clots in young women (last I read about 1 in a million), but the benefits are keeping people out of the hospital and from dying. As a personal note, my wife’s best friend listened to advice from the likes of Steve W, got COVID, went into renal failure, followed by a stroke followed by death. None of those wonderful treatments that Steve W speaks about saved her. And it was all so unnecessary! I have no doubt that the vaccine would have saved her life.

misquote, greed is the incentive. Know one does anything for free. Except largely churches and missions they collect and distribute resources to those who need it ! Killing baby’s falls under which one it’s a business! The money and the love of it is the foundation of big pharma. The love of profit I think. Not the well being of people!

1 Timothy 6:10: “…the LOVE of money…”. Dr. Brown is too smart to have made such an amateurish error. I wonder what is the true agenda behind such a blatant misquote

I see Michael is still straddling the fence where it comes to the mRNA vaccines - must be very painful! The Apostle Paul tells us to "prove all things". The evidence is overwhelming that these vaccines are very dangerous (if only you look) and are an order of magnitude more dangerous than COVID19 (once you strip out the deliberate overestimation of COVID deaths). And sorry Michael you are naïve as Big Pharma is evil (for the most part). Here is a few of their misdemeanours: promoting a dangerous experimental/untested mRNA vaccine, suppressing information on CHEAP alternative treatments for COVID such as Ivermectin/HCQ, hiding the fact that foetal tissue was used in the development of the vaccines, suppressing the knowledge that natural remedies exist to treat numerous ailments including cancer, to mention a few!
