The CDC Admits I Was Right
[Comments enabled]

Told you so.

An overwhelming majority of people who have been hospitalized, needed a ventilator or died from Covid-19 have been overweight or obese, the CDC said in a new study Monday.

Among 148,494 adults who received a Covid-19 diagnosis during an emergency department or inpatient visit at 238 U.S. hospitals from March to December, 71,491 were hospitalized. Of those who were admitted, 27.8% were overweight and 50.2% were obese, according to the CDC report. Overweight is defined as having a body mass index of 25 or more, while obesity is defined as having a BMI of 30 or more.

So, basically, if you're not a fat-ass then your odds of getting hammered by Covid drop by 80%.

Here's what I said on April 9th of last year.

Being obese and diabetic has a high probability of being a death sentence if you get this virus.  You're anywhere from 100 to over 1,000 times more likely to die.  To put perspective on this if you get this virus you have less than a 0.06% chance of death (and probably less than half that; I'm being generous in the direction of mortality in that calculation) if you have none of these conditions.  Some of these are not under your control -- cancer being one of them, much of the time.  If you're in one of those categories then you've got good odds of winding up in the ICU and if you land there about half the time you come out in a box -- 90% of the time if you wind up on a vent.  Those odds suck.  HCQ and either ZPAK or Doxycycline appears to work.  How well is not known yet.  Clinical data (that's "anecdote" to those two **********s on the side of Trump in his briefings) says they do work but no drug regime works for everyone.

Obesity and Type II diabetes, which are two of the most-deadly co-morbidities are absolutely under your control.  So is smoking and excessive drinking.  And to the extent hypertension is linked to being obese, that one is too.

For reasons not well understood at this time diabetes and hypertension, both of which are heavily linked to obesity, are extreme mortality enhancements with this virus.  Thus, it is fair to call The PieHole Virus, that is, what you put in the pie hole, a direct contributor to whether coronavirus kills you or is somewhere between a mild and serious annoyance.

You have until fall folks.  Yes, we have our lockdowns today, but if they don't cut this bull**** out soon hospitals are going to start collapsing for lack of funding and supply chains will break in critical ways.  Then the ordinary heart attack -- or an abscessed tooth -- will kill you because there's no health care at all.

What did you do?

You packed on 29 more lbs on average.

And then winter came and people died.

It is not my responsibility to "wear a masssssssssssk" because you intentionally ate yourself into a ****ing blob knowing ******n well that it might kill you -- and in many cases it did.

Especially when the mask didn't work either, did it?  Which county had the mandate?  No cheating, *******s.  Tell me what you see, not what you'd like to see.

 

Done yet folks?

I told you how to fix this on April 9th of last year too.

It's right here.

That post was four years old and my personal application of it, which I've written on since I did it, is now ten years old.

That wasn't the first warning in the age of Covid either.  No, that came from me on 2-25, which you can read right here.

Yep.

You had six months after the spring surge all the way until the fall and not only did nothing you intentionally made it worse.

I pointed to everyone exactly how to stop being dead; between obesity and making damn sure you were not Vitamin D deficient all alone were likely enough -- and I pointed out both multiple times including in articles in May onward (one of which was very pointed, as the data at that point had started to come in on severe Vitamin D deficiency) yet you didn't do anything about that either.

Once into the fall you can't get sufficient Vitamin D from the outdoors.  It's why we have a "virus season" every winter.  Resolving that costs pennies.  Not being a fat-ass costs nothing; that's simply a matter of changing what you eat.

You didn't believe me.

You thought I was some crank, and was "mean" for pointing out you were killing yourself.

Well, now the CDC admits I was right.

But you can't tell me I was right because you're dead as a result of being stupid.

Or you got severely ****ed by this virus and you won't admit I was right, even after the CDC so-states.

Yeah, there were and always will be exceptions.

But for 80% of those who got ****ed you weren't exceptions.

You were the rule and you did it to yourself, voluntarily, by your own actions.

And now you want to be stupid a second time and take an experimental vaccine that may well kill you -- either immediately or down the road -- rather than stop being a fat-ass and not only avoid Covid-19 killing you but also stop diabetes, heart disease and hypertension from killing you at the same time.

Based entirely on what I've seen and you've said since last year, whenever it's brought up I've said "Why are you worried? If you're not an old ****, a fat **** or a sickly ****, you're really not high risk."

So... It still holds true. 78% chubby or obese, eh?

I look forward to your blog everyday. This is the only internet site I read these days. You are the only news/information person I trust. You are brilliant, sensible and right.

I took your advice and supplemented with zinc and vitamin C & D. I went keto and lost 15 pounds over the winter. I run 3 miles every day. I look better and feel great. You changed my life. Thank you.

Not sure if anyone linked this, but another good read on Ivermectin from Ann Barnhardt over at https://www.barnhardt.biz/: "Can we talk about how many colds and flus could have been prevented or knocked-down by Ivermectin over the past 40 years? While BigPharma sold billions in flu vaccines and OTC remedies?"

TG, I'm thinking Ivermectin would still help someone who's had the jab and later gets infected with Wuhan/Brazil/European20A.EU1/etc... rona. Of course all bets are off if ADE occurs.

It MAY help in the event of ADE, as one of its methods of action is as an immune modulator. However, anyone counting on that to save their ass in the event of ADE is a fool; when ADE hits it is a trainwreck.

Tickerguy - I have autoimmune issues I deal with, so I watch EVERYTHING - I have read your stuff on weight loss, getting in shape, etc - whereas I never have been fat (body type is slender), as I'm in my 50s, and a little extra came on that I'm dealing with. I also took to heart the Vitamin D thing - and living in North Dakota, the only sun we get is summer (and plenty of that), yet winter time not so much.

I started taking 5-10k of Vitamin D with zinc every day along with quercetin - and one day a week took my "bazooka" vitamin d which is 50,000 units in a little capsule. Wife did the same. Wife deals with asthma and is on Budesonide (coincidence!)

Anyway - I did contract covid as my immune system is low, and it was like a cold to me - heck I didn't KNOW I had covid until I lost my sense of taste and smell. I also was very tired. Had the wife get tested, and she was positive (?) PCR test yet was just very tired, no symptoms...

I believe in my guts it was the Vitamin D, zinc and quercetin.

In the meantime, I have a bottle of Ivermectin 1% solution in my cabinet, and after the Idaho doc video - I have 2 more bottles on the way - maybe even more - we will see.

It simply cheeses me out that there is a *PREVENTATIVE* (immune system getting beefed up) and a *CURE* (Ivermectin) for COVID that is getting panned and doubted all over.

Mark Twain is credited with the quote "it's easier to lie to somebody than to convince them they've been lied to" - I see it every day here - the critical thinking in the majority of people is beyond the pale....

frustrating to say the least!

Yep, shouldn't have come as a surprise. Same as it ever was.

A novel risk factor for a novel virus: obesity and 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1)

Conclusion: half of Californians ≥ 20 years of age hospitalized with 2009 H1N1 infection were obese. Extreme obesity was associated with increased odds of death. Obese adults with 2009 H1N1 infection should be treated promptly and considered in prioritization of vaccine and antiviral medications during shortages.

Rporth,

The propoganda and fear porn with this non disease has been HIGHLY EFFECTIVE. There are so many Karens running around afraid of their own shadows with this its ridiculous. For me, this is the worst part of the entire thing. That the larger MAJORITY of folks can be convinced that this is such a big deal. That they can be literally brainwashed into rejecting facts and data.

Herr Goebbels would be more than proud. The greatest scam pulled on humanity likely in history.

I think that there are a lot of people that aren't as afraid of WuFlu as ABCBSNBCBNMBS would have us think. They're just going along to get along. What scares me is how easily they'd give up EVERYTHING ...just in hopes of not losing ANYTHING

I have no sympathy for them.

So my wife and I took the first Moderna shot last Friday and have the second once scheduled for April 22nd. My wife has a pretty serious case of occupational asthma related to a workplace exposure to chlorine gas a decade ago (Leak at a YMCA Pool). Our Family Doctor and her Pulmonologist had been strongly urging her to get the shot due to this condition. She is otherwise fit and active. We both have just crested the 60 year mark.

I got the shot too out of solidarity and the fact that I am 30 lbs overweight and have controlled hypertension (runs in the family). Yes I know I have control over this but I had it when I was not overweight. Yep, both of us may or may not experience ADE or die but we have weighed everything and made our own personal choice. Still not going to go away from the quercetin, Vit D, zinc and other supplements I take. Will have ivermectin on hand as well

Didn't wear the mask before the shot (unless absolutely required) and have/do not expect others to get the shot, wear a mask or whatever. Pretty sure that after this two shot regimen that I will never take another carona related shot.

Should this kick off some wild mass die off I am not sure I want to be around anyways. There will not be power, order, medical care or much of anything else if that happens.

Just a personal choice, we all make them in terms of lifestyle and ultimately will reckon with any consequences resulting from by body's reaction to those choices.

Having discovered this blog about a month ago, and reading other sources of information, it is becoming clear to me that the medical industrial complex (which is precisely the way to describe it) is driven by the prospect of endless profits from the covid-19 vaccines. Starting last year I wondered why we never heard a peep about anything like DRACO (a broad spectrum antiviral treatment) or several methods recently developed to regenerate thymus glands in older people (this latter is developed by a friend of mine in SoCal). We never heard a peep about either of this. When I thought about pandemics about 5-6 years ago, I honestly thought that if we had one, a real one like the John Ringo Bird Flu, that there will be a crash effort to develop DRACO and make it available to everyone. I guess I was still naive about the medical establishment.

What enrages me about the MIC *******s and their political class enablers is that, if what I am reading here about ADE risk is real, they are willing to risk the very existence of our civilization. And for what? Easy profits? Or even worse, bureaucratic group-think?

The arrogance and stupidity of these people is astounding.

Yeah...a mass-ADE event directly related to the jab could easily bring down all remaining social order in the West. It would depend on the fatality of ADE, which from the sounds of it, could vary widely and be concentrated in the older Boomer population.

I am overweight.

Not proud of it. Trying to fight it. Bacon is my drug.

But I am active, work outside, and take Vitamin D, K, C and a few others.

It was a non event. Didn't even feel that sick.

Doc is convinced it was the vitamins, my activity level, and immune system. She is also convinced I need to loose 30 lbs and pass up the bacon (probably right on that count).

Only lasting impacts that I have felt is I lost some smells (starting to come back), and in a 3 mile hike I get winded after the 2.5 mile mark now. Never did that before even when I weighed a touch more.

Quote:
One model of mask distributed to Quebec schools and daycares may be dangerous for the lungs as they could contain a potentially toxic material, according to a directive sent out by the provincial government on Friday.

Radio-Canada has obtained documents showing Health Canada warned of the potential for "early pulmonary toxicity" from the SNN200642 masks which are made in China and sold and distributed by Mtallifer, a Quebec-based manufacturer.

"If you have this type of mask in stock, we ask that you stop distributing them and keep them in a safe place now," the provincial government says in the directive that was sent by three ministries: education, families and higher education.

Some daycare educators had been suspicious of these grey and blue masks for a while because they felt like they were swallowing cat hair while wearing them, Radio-Canada has learned.

Health Canada conducted a preliminary risk assessment which revealed a potential for early lung damage associated with inhalation of microscopic graphene particles. Graphene is a strong, very thin material that is used in fabrication, but it can be harmful to lungs when inhaled and can cause long-term health problems.

As if we needed another reason to not wear a masks. Poor quality control or on purpose?

Been keeping an eye out for any stories about viral or bacterial infections that suddenly crop up. This one is from Nova Brunswick, 5 people dead and 45 sick from bacterial infection similar to mad cow, nothing about whether these people were vaccinated with a COVID shot but would be nice to know, the timing is certainly worth noting.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article....

If your on the HFLC try it with some fasting, 3 meals in 8 hours, fasting for 16, then two meals within 4 hours, fasting for 20 and then one meal a day, fasting for 23, been working really well for me, although you have to be strict on the HFLC or you will get hungry.

If you wake up (read this site since you joined in 2016), and your house is on fire, would you rollover and go back to sleep (Take the shot)?

Your doctors are participating in a Genocide and are criminals, and are idiots for recommending your wife take this illegal shot, that only ups her chances of dying.
