The problem with making informed decisions about coronavirus is that we don’t have a whole lot of data on it at the moment. The data that we do have, meanwhile, could end up being terminally skewed, particularly the data that’s been coming out of China. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance on determining COVID-19 as a cause of death isn’t going to help those numbers. Issued March 24, the guidance tells hospitals to list COVID-19 as a cause of death regardless of whether or not there’s actual testing to confirm that’s the case. Instead, even if the coronavirus was just a contributing factor or if it’s “assumed to have caused or contributed to death,” it can be listed as the primary cause.

In our effort to expose our readership to alternative views on the current COVID19 crisis, we want to feature the work of another scientist who does not follow the narrative being given to the public by our government officials and the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai has a long list of credentials that should allow him to have a voice in the current COVID19 pandemic, but it is highly unlikely you will come across his views outside of the alternative media. Dr. Shiva is the inventor of email and polymath, and holds four degrees from MIT. He has been involved in medicine for almost 45 years. Dr. Shiva starts out by explaining the difference between what he calls the "reductionist approach" to medicine and health, and the "systemic approach," which as an engineer, is the approach he subscribes to. Rather than focus on a single cause (the coronavirus) to a disease, his approach is to view the body's "operating system," which is the immune system. He points out the fact that each one of us carries around over 328 TRILLION viruses in our body, so attributing an illness to a single virus is short-sighted. In an interview conducted this past weekend, Dr. Shiva discusses the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, which has 17 points for developing a "utopia" for the world. Part of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals is the World Health Organization's IA2030, which is designed to achieve this worldwide "utopia" by seeking to vaccinate every person on the planet. Dr. Shiva has a long history with the U.S. Government's top medical doctor controlling the nation's COVID19 response, Dr. Anthony Fauci. "This guy is a total front man (for Big Pharma), and no one will call him out. And do you know why? Because all the academics, many of whom I went to school with and studied with, they all have to pay homage to people like Fauci because they control their grant funding." Dr. Shiva claims he is an independent researcher who is self-funded, therefore he is able to speak freely. He mentions the fact that Dr. Fauci is on the leadership council for the Gates Foundation, and that Fauci is best known for developing what he calls the "PR Campaign" to convince the public that the HIV virus caused AIDS. Much research has been conducted that concludes there is no relationship between HIV and AIDS. Like many other scientists and medical doctors we have featured here at Health Impact News, Dr. Shiva states his concern that the response to the COVID19 pandemic does not match the actual threat to the public. So when the facts do not support the action, we need to look for another cause for the actions.
NYC Doctor in ER and Critical Care: Lung Injuries Caused by Ventilators – “We’re Treating the Wrong Disease!”
A New York City physician who says he is working as an ER physician in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) treating COVID19 patients, took to YouTube to explain that he believes patients with COVID19 symptoms are being treated incorrectly with mechanical ventilators, and that the ventilators are doing more harm than good. "I am a physician who has been working at the bedside of COVID+ patients in NYC. I believe we are treating the wrong disease and that we must change what we are doing if we want to save as many lives as possible. In short, I believe we are treating the wrong disease, and I fear that this misguided treatment will lead to a tremendous amount of harm to a great number of people in a very short time… I feel compelled to give this information out. COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia and should not be treated as one. We don’t know where we’re going. We are putting breathing tubes in people and putting them on ventilators and dialing up the pressure to open their lungs. I’ve talked to doctors all around the country and it is becoming increasingly clear that the pressure we are providing may be hurting their lungs."
"A sad soul can kill you quicker than a germ"- John Steinbeck Hundreds of millions of adults and children are now either in quarantine in their homes, or engaged in "essential" travel in the public sphere, while maintaining an unnatural distance from one another, because they have been told this is the best way to protect their individual and the public health from a deadly virus. But what are the consequences of the social isolation caused by this mass social distancing experiment? There is a growing body of scientific research demonstrating that social isolation has significant adverse health impacts on both the psychological and physiological health and well-being of individuals, as represented by the following 13 studies which show significant increases in mortality.
I have long feared a police state. Not the figurative one we’ve been letting develop for years now. I mean a literal one. Where they can stop you for any reason and ask you for your “papers.” Where they can restrict your movements, and your associations. Where they can confine you to your homes. This became an unfortunate reality for me and all other Virginians. Mayor Ralph “Blackface” Northam signed an Executive Order that essentially locks my state down. Police can stop any motorist and ask where they are going. If they aren’t going to a doctor or the store, they can be charged with a misdemeanor. For now. And those essential personnel who are still working have been given papers. Yes, “show me your papers” is finally here in the land of the free. Over the course of just a few weeks, America and most of the world has been subjected to a power play that rivals anything that George Orwell could have dreamed up. Whole countries locked down. People quarantined who have no illness. People restricted to their houses. “Social distancing” mandating that people stay six feet apart from one another. The closing down of virtually all businesses. No more going to the movies, or restaurants, or casinos, or concerts. Professional sports leagues and even the NCAA’s lucrative March Madness basketball tournament have been cancelled. All schools have been closed indefinitely. Benjamin Franklin wisely warned, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Considering the continuous fear porn coming from our leaders, few of us probably feel safe. And their totalitarian response to an invisible enemy should make all of us feel demonstrably less free.
Independent Journalist of 38 Years Questions Official Narrative of COVID19 – Warns of U.S. Becoming a Medical Police State
Ok folks, put down your TV remotes, log out of your Netflix and Hulu accounts for a little while, and listen to these 3 podcasts by freelance journalist Jon Rappoport if you want to understand what is probably really going on with COVID19 and the disruptions to our lives and economy. Jon Rappoport has been an a journalist for 38 years. He has written articles on politics, health, media, culture and art for LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, Village Voice, Nexus, CBS Healthwatch, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe. In 1982, the LA Weekly submitted his name for a Pulitzer prize, for his interview with the president of El Salvador University, where the military had taken over the campus. Jon has hosted, produced, and written radio programs and segments in Los Angeles and Las Vegas (KPFK, KLAV). He has appeared as a guest on over 200 radio and television programs, including ABC's Nightline, Tony Brown's Journal (PBS), and Hard Copy. Jon has lectured extensively all over the US on the question: Who runs the world and what can we do about it? Since 2000, Jon has operated largely away from the mainstream media because, as he puts it: "My research was not friendly to the conventional media." As a journalist and editor myself, I have spent countless hours the past few weeks reading and digesting everything I can on this COVID19 situation. I watch all the White House Press Briefings everyday so I can hear directly from our leaders what is being said to the public about COVID19. Jon Rappoport is an expert on epidemics and pandemics, and ever since COVID19 has captured the attention of the world, he has been churning out articles and commentaries on a daily basis drawing from his many years of experience in covering topics like this. It has been hard to keep up with everything he is writing, and apparently I am not the only one who feels that way. So what Jon has done is summarize everything he has written on the topic so far in easy-to-understand audio podcasts. These were just published yesterday (April 2, 2020), and at the end of my long day late at night, when I was tempted to turn on my TV to relax for a bit just before retiring for the night, I decided to instead listen to the first podcast, because I knew from following Rappoport for years that what he had to say would most likely be more interesting and riveting than anything I would watch on TV, and keep me awake even though it was late at night. I was correct, and my intention to just listen to Part 1 was easily overcome as I could not help but listen to all 3 parts before ending my day. I don't think you will hear anything like this anywhere else, and it is worth your time to listen to what Jon has to say, and then share it with everyone you know.
Americans use more toilet paper per capita than any other country in the world. Who could have ever foreseen that here in the 21st Century, with the nation in the midst of a world-wide pandemic, that one of the foremost thoughts on most Americans' minds would be: "Where can I find some toilet paper!!" It might surprise most Americans to learn that to most of the world, toilet paper, like other disposable paper products, is a luxury, and NOT a necessity. Would you like to be free of the slavery to toilet paper and learn a healthier way of cleaning yourself after using the toilet?
The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives. Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, business closures, restrictions on assembly and movement, and quarantines are not constitutionally permissible under some magic “emergency” doctrine. At a minimum, the federal government must show potential imminent harm by specific infected individuals at some form of hearing or trial. These due process requirements are not suspended. Government cannot decide what aspects of our lives are essential or nonessential. The American people cannot simply sit at home and wait for government checks written on funds that government does not have. End the shutdown.
Just Received. Ozone REVERSES Critically Ill COVID Patients in China, and VERY RAPIDLY. If I were given a chance, I strongly believe we could end this nightmare in a few weeks and restore the economy. There is a cure out there for COVID. Fast, simple, Essentially 100% safe. And depending on method used, can be quite cheap. So far, every patient I have heard about who has received ozone therapy for this disease has recovered, including the two critically ill patients here.
Fear over the coronavirus is gripping the nation and world, as within a short period of time life around the globe has drastically changed very suddenly. The main question facing everyone in the U.S. today is: How serious is this? Is the response the government is making right now consistent with the threat this virus presents? Some are proposing that anyone in the media who dares to question the official narrative should be silenced for the sake of "public health." Facebook, for example, took strong actions against Health Impact News by claiming we were publishing "fake news," mainly by publishing the views of Dr. Andrew W. Saul, Editor of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, who published news about successful intravenous Vitamin C therapy which had started in China. And yet this week, the New York Post reported that the same therapy had started at hospitals in New York City. With the Coronavirus situation affecting virtually every single person on the planet right now, suppressing alternative information that goes against the "mainstream" narrative is a very dangerous precedent, and is a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment which protects freedom of speech and freedom of the press. It is especially concerning when one of my colleagues in the alternative media, without even contacting me directly, publicly demands that we retract one of our articles authored by a medical doctor, simply because this person believes his view of the current situation is the only correct view. I do not pretend to be an expert on medical science, which is why Health Impact News publishes alternative views by medical doctors and other scientists who are experts in their field. During difficult days like the ones currently facing us, I believe the public has a right to read all sides of the issue and make up their own minds. Caution is certainly prudent, but fear? Among all this fear, where is faith in God? The opposite of fear is "faith." Have we lost our way as a nation? Does the phrase inscribed on our currency "In God we Trust" mean anything anymore? Faith in God does NOT mean we will not face difficult times. On the contrary, often those who are most faithful face the most difficult trials in life. Faith in God means we trust that there is a stronger power than ourselves controlling the affairs of humanity, and that if we trust in him, he will give us the strength to endure whatever trials come our way.
