The FDA is targeting Dr. Joseph Mercola. Bill Sardi reports in LewRockwell.com (abridged):
Regarding Dr. Joe Mercola’s statements, re-produced at LewRockwell.com, that a number of products at Mercola.com do treat, prevent and cure COVID-19, it needs to be said that such claims are permissible under the law as long as brand names are not identified.
Dr. Mercola made a general blanket statement. No brands were mentioned.
That the FDA lists Mercola.com on its fraudulent COVID-19 products page as well the Center For Science In The Public Interest issues a veiled threat to remove Mercola’s STopCOVIDCold.com website where free scientific reports that detail the benefits of vitamins in protecting against all viral infections are posted, represents egregious and unjustified violations of the First Amendment.
There IS current scientific literature that conclusively asserts certain vitamins and minerals, namely vitamin D, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin A, selenium, are beneficial in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 and that such information is covered by the first amendment of free speech that Dr. Mercola accurately cites.
The very fact that influenza and coronavirus infections are seasonal (winter) strongly suggests sunshine vitamin D is a natural preventive against respiratory diseases. In lieu of sunlight/skin exposure, vitamin D pills suffice to prevent or even treat infectious disease. Modern medicine overlooks the seasonality of infectious disease.
As of this date there have been 535,000 COVID-19 related (but not necessarily COVID-19 caused) deaths in the US. That a person dies with a lab confirmed cases of COVID-19 does not prove that the person died of COVID-19, only that they died with COVID-19.
About 94% of these COVID-19 deaths have largely occurred among the frail elderly who have co-morbid diseases and were on their deathbed when they tested positive for COVID-19.
This means only 6% of deaths were COVID-19 only. So only 6% of the 535,000 COVID-19 deaths = 32,100 deaths may be from COVID-19 alone; 32,100 COVID-19 associated deaths in a population of 325,000,000 = a death rate of 0.000098%, or almost 10 in 100,000.
So, if vaccines prevented all deaths, 99,990 people would have to be vaccinated to prevent 10 deaths. Based upon the data, the vaccines cannot be more than 0.000098% effective at reducing mortality in the population at large, not 0.95%.
