I wonder how this idiot came to conclusion that chicken soup does not contain chemicals...water is a chemical, proteins are chemicals, and so on. Revoke er high school diploma.


Yah I made this argument a bunch of times after I got my BS in Chemistry... People never appreciated it. The titration is real.


I feel your pain. When I was a grad student in Chemistry, I sold hot sauce I made on the side at a farm. I grew all the peppers and fermented them myself. I literally had 4 ingredients. Peppers, vinegar, salt, xanthan gum. The product was a far superior texture with just a tiny pinch. Every granola fuck would question me adding a "chemical". I would literally explain to them the biological process that creates xanthan gum and they didn't listed because they didn't like the name. I would just tell them not to buy it because I sold out every day anyway. The best part was...once they realized I didn't need their business, then they would buy...the fucks.

Another time, I was in whole foods and this girl is looking at a bag of chips with her friend and says "I would never put a poison like maltodextrin in my body". She's covered from her neck down in fucking tattoos. What, ink in your skin for life is fine but anything you don't like the name of cannot pass through your digestive track?

That's the thing that really pisses me off with these people. They are always all inked up but so conscious of what they put into their body. They all smoke weed too (not that I'm against that but just have a set of values consistent with each other).

As far as homeopathic shit goes....all the females at my workplace run workshops where they claim if you spray lavender oil on god knows what....it cures everything! Oh you have allergies...try lavender oil. Oh you are depressed...try lavender oil. Oh you have a fever? Try lavender oil. Oh you have Wuhan Flu? Here...spray the lavender oil in your throat. I'm sure Chris Cuomo fucking reeks of lavender oil right now.

These are the same people probably badmouthing the potential of anti-virals....medications that literally are designed to interfere with viral replication!

ok end rant...

Many have a much reduced pain threshold, too. I speculate they are in more or less a constant immune crisis because of all the ink in their skin provoking a response. I think these tatters are going to have a lot of autoimmune diseases and arthritoids as they age.

Trump retweeted this.


Listening to Bloomberg Radio (station WBBR) and they have been interviewing family and urgent care medical doctors who have said the hydrox and antibiotic mix of Rx have been lifesavers with fighting coronavirus for their patients.

Seems like Bloomberg is not toeing the Democrat media (ie., CNN, NBC, Washington Post, etc.) line and is reporting about preliminary results from the Rx treatments.

I hate when those dumbasses ask you if you've "researched?" or say "I've researched" which usually means they spent 15 minutes looking at Mama's Organics or the EarthCrunch website, never took HS Chemistry and have no fucking clue about jack shit.

https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/coronavirus-turkey-hydroxychloroquine-malaria-treatment-progress

Turkey has made significant progress in treating coronavirus patients in the early stages of the disease with the controversial malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, Turkish officials have said. ...

“Many countries prescribe this drug to intubated patients,” Koca said. “However, our science board suggested that the drug is really beneficial in the early stages to prevent the spread of the virus in the body.”

The health minister reminded viewers that one of the fundamental features of the disease was lung infection.

“We believe beginning early treatment [with this drug] played a big role in reducing the rate of lung infection among the patients,” he said. ...

Many doctors argue that the drug has not been tested enough yet to be used to treat coronavirus patients.

However, earlier this month, doctors in China reported that hydroxychloroquine had helped to speed up the recovery of some patients who had mild symptoms.

Dramatic fall in pneumonia rates
The Turkish official told MEE that the drug was effective against pneumonia, which is seen as among the leading causes of death for coronavirus patients.

Most of the patients taken to intensive care or who are put on ventilators are there because they have developed pneumonia.

“The minister, instead of underlying the importance of the drug itself, has pointed out the benefit of using the drug in the early stages, before the patient becomes severely ill,” the official said.

Statistics released by the Turkish health ministry on Tuesday showed that since beginning the treatment, new cases of lung disease among coronavirus patients have greatly decreased.

On 24 March, 60 percent of coronavirus cases registered were patients with pneumonia, while on 6 April that had fallen to 19.5 percent.

By Denise Grady
April 1, 2020

The malaria drug hydroxychloroquine helped to speed the recovery of a small number of patients who were mildly ill from the coronavirus, doctors in China reported this week.

Cough, fever and pneumonia went away faster, and the disease seemed less likely to turn severe in people who received hydroxychloroquine than in a comparison group not given the drug. The authors of the report said that the medication was promising, but that more research was needed to clarify how it might work in treating coronavirus disease and to determine the best way to use it.

“It’s going to send a ripple of excitement out through the treating community,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University.

The study was small and limited to patients who were mildly or moderately ill, not severe cases. Like many reports about the coronavirus, it was posted at medRxiv, an online server for medical articles, before undergoing peer review by other researchers.

But the findings strongly support earlier studies suggesting a role for the drug, Dr. Schaffner said.

Question: Why would the PM of Israel thank India for chloroquine shipments if it were useless?

Answer: He wouldn't.

The Israelis know what they are doing, and they don't naively swallow bullshit from the media like most Americans do.

The mainstream US media sucks, especially the NY Times and NPR. They are only hate and propaganda 24/7. They make Fox News look good.

It’s not “very frightening”, or at least ought not be.

We have plenty of people around the world who have had to be admitted into hospitals, ICU’s, put on ventilators and died. We have a lot of information about the risk factors associated with age and underlying conditions. If a drug is anything more than just slightly effective, all we have to do is statistically compare the outcomes of people getting the drug to the outcomes we have seen based on age and underlying conditions.

That is what front line doctors are doing and they are reporting that there is clear and, sometimes, profound clinical improvement in many, many patients, especially when this combination of medicines is administered earlier rather than later. Some of these are highly respected, practicing infectious disease experts. And we’ve had decades of experience in prescribing these drugs so there is no uncertainty as to their safety.

But if it's ealrier, what pecentage would be getting better anyway ?

Patrick says

Yeah, that's all. But if you understand statistics you know that say, if going with standard treatments, 5% die, One sample of 100 where 1 or 2 or 3 die or one sample of 100 where 7 or 8 die is not conclusive at all, in fact it would be somewhat expected. Certainly a doctor with 20 patients that are all treated early and get better, doesn't prove nearly as much as you might think it does.

But we're dealing with something closer to 2% of symptomatic people die. This means that about 40% of the time you do a sample of 100 your going to get 1 or less dying. That's with whatever standard treatments.

It would take a lot of double blind samples of 100 to start knowing if it works. But they think it might, so who wants to be in a control group ? They're just going to use it until they have something better. But don't expect news that it work great, unless we start to see the death rate dropping faster than the leading drop in new cases.

Actually that would be the best indicator if it's working. I think it's safe to assume a lot of doctors are using it.

We know that at very best this drug will have a very mild effect on changing the course of the disease, if it has any effect at all. That's what the data shows so far. And not without adverse consequence. It's irresponsible to promote this drug at this time. Quack drug.

Is there somewhere we can get reliable statistics on the course of the disease in thousands of patients and what they were treated with at what stage?

It's insane to tell people who could die that they have to wait a year for a double-blind test with well-known drugs generally considered safe for mass use for decades now.

And it's unnecessary. We just need to analyze the existing statistics, if we can find them.

For those that believe this drug or drug combo is a "cure" I would suggest looking into how anti-viral drugs work. There is a tiny tiny chance this drug or drug combo will prove to be an anti-viral. that would be a huge stroke of dumb luck. I would bet anyone $1000 right now that if it has any affect on covid-19 patients its not curative or in any way acts as a true anti-viral.

Look at the diseases it is approved to be used for, Malaria (a parasite) and Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus (auto-immune). Why out of the thousands of drugs out there did the Chinese use this one? Its a maintenance/low dose drug for RA and Lupus, what does it do? it reduces inflammation in some way with these diseases. In other words it treats the symptoms and it may possibly have some affect on Covid-19 symptoms in the the same way Tylenol reduces fever but doesn't cure the underlying disease. There is a cascade of nasty and potentially deadly symptoms that the bodies immune response to covid-19 causes. I would guess, given its proven usefulness in auto-immune disease the Chinese saw this a way of potentially treating the death causing symptoms of their patients. And it may work for that, may. No magic bullet, no cure, no preventative but possibly useful in treatment.

That's not the point, it alleviates the severe effects of the virus, allowing people to recover. Dosing it will a broad-spectrum antibiotic helps keep Pneumonia from arising as a secondary condition.

Aspirin and Blood Pressure meds don't eliminate Heart Disease, but they do provide breathing space to either get the person to the hospital for further treatment (Bypasses, Stints, etc.), or reduce the strain on the heart allowing for years, sometimes decades of quality living. Should we forget about Beta Blocckers because they don't cure the underlying condition by itself?

Most anti-virals have similar mechanisms and attack a common pathway for the virus to invade/replicate. This is a symptom relieve and an aid to a cure for those that need it until the body can mount a defense or if it mounts too much defense against high initial viral load. To select the cheapest one with mass-scaling manufacturing capabilities makes perfect sense. All the other drug and vaccine are for a later stage to immunize the weak/susceptible and treat the sick. This worked perfectly well and in favor of Trump, and against those hoping for more deaths and infinite lockdowns just because orange!man!bad!

The Virus is Harmless, read Harmless! It has no effect what so ever on 98% of the people that get it. Ask Ron Paul!
I think, Know it all Egg Heads that refuse to look at the facts, because they already fucking know it all, and oh yeah Fuck Trump!
Need to sit their ass down and shut the fuck up.
What the Virus triggers in some, not all, but some. Is an auto immune response to attack the lungs and or other organs.


When you've got millions of clinical cases that were left untreated, and they all follow a curve once they get to a point of no return, and a large percent of them left untreated get to the critical stage.

Then you've got multiple Doctors, with charts for proof! That have treated large populations, and none of them ever got to the same state a percent of patients get, when left untreated.

Then one can logically conclude, anecdotal or otherwise, in the face of a Political charged partisan hacks that dominate Academics and Medical Administration. They can all go suck my DICK!

No aganda with this TpB.

Newsflash for TPB, Word of mouth in the medical community is 10000 times more powerful than what Trump says works or what the people with critical thinking skills say about questioning it.

If it works as you say, a lot of doctors will jump on board. We should see an awesome decrease in deaths, far outpacing the decrease in new cases. Doctors are open minded, but at the same time, they aren't gullible idiots. They can't afford to be. Well see.
