Vaccines

All these vaccines for the coronavirus — the pharmaceutical companies claim they have a high percentage effectiveness rate, but making such a claim is also very much in the pharms self interest to claim that, as it gives the pharms access to the huge and lucrative market for such an effective vaccine. But are these vaccines really as effective as claimed?

And no doubt they have been rushed to market, so to speak, in order to deal with the pandemic, but in that haste to make them available, has adequate testing been done to rule out side effects and even serious medical reactions?

What if the vaccine you are taking — trusting all the various claims about it — is in fact not only ineffective against the virus, but can produce serious, even life-threatening reactions.

Are you taking too big a leap of faith in trusting these pharmaceutical companies, companies that like all profit-making companies are focused very much on the bottom line?

Nutrition Challenge

Make your meals as intensely nutritious as possible — as in way over-the-top nutritious — but still be savory. I practice the GBOMBS diet, and Cronometer is indispensable to achieve super duper nutrition. It’s your body…you are in charge of it, no one else.

Super-duper nutrition involves two very different elements — finding the foods that have powerful nutrients and including them; identifying the foods that undermine your health and avoiding them. You have to do both.

Weight Loss

Weight Loss

Weight loss from 198 to 155 in one year. Nutritarian diet (Joel Fuhrman) with intermittent fasting.

I’ve recently found that baked potatoes are also a useful tool, as they are filling and very low in fat. Having days with a very low number of grams in fat really accelerates weight loss. It may not be true that “fat makes you fat,” but it is clearly true that low fat will make you skinny because low-fat days tend also to make for low-calorie days.

What Don’t You Know?

You Don’t Know What You Need

If you use Cronometer religiously, you can find out what your diet is deficient in, and then make the adjustment either with foods that have the missing nutrient or with supplements. Without Cronometer, you won’t know. For instance, I now know that I’m routinely deficient in iodine, choline and lysine and often low in calcium.

Cronometer even has a function where you plug in the missing nutrient, and it will tell you the top 25 foods that contain it.

Death Rates Compared

The flu pandemic in 1918/1919 (it came back a second year) infected about 1/3 of the entire world, i.e., it was highly infectious with a huge number of people infected. But it wasn’t a death sentence as the death rate was only 2.5%. Yet millions died because so many were infected. The death rate for the current pandemic is a little over 2%, much greater than the standard flu death rate of just .1%, but, so far, it has infected far fewer people than the 1918/19 pandemic.

A nasty aspect of the Spanish Flu is that it could kill very quickly.  Often those people who were infected died that same day or shortly afterward.  A respiratory killer — you suffocated from lack of oxygen.
