In the interim, I recommend this brilliant essay on what the coronavirus has taught us.
Let us not be cavalier about the coronavirus. Let us pay proper respect to the dead.
The death toll you’ve heard almost nothing about.
The coronavirus is straining the healthcare systems of the richest nations in the world.
Medical bureaucrats wrapped themselves in the cloak of science. They said the battle was against paranoia, misinformation & stigma. Thousands have now perished.
Coronavirus deaths follow choir practice. A grassroots, homemade-masks-for-all movement gathers steam.
61 physicians have died in Italy. They’re also dying in France, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
When things are dire, humans accomplish amazing feats.
Doctors on the front lines are shouting from the rooftops.
Humour is our secret weapon.
Four weeks ago, we lived in a different world.
Coronavirus has turned hospitals into war zones, say Italian doctors.
Canada was the only country outside Asia in which people died from the SARS coronavirus. A doctor and two nurses were among its victims. All three were in their 50s.
How are different countries coping? What is the case fatality rate?
The World Health Organization is playing games.
How can zero deaths be a ‘health emergency’?
Some people are ‘curing’ their Type 2 diabetes by changing what they eat.
Reputable media outlets routinely mislead the public when reporting the latest scientific discoveries.
‘Winter mortality is lower when the price of heating is lower’: new research report.
Tourists who eschew vaccination are reintroducing disease to less affluent countries.
Peer-reviewed science can be found to support nearly every position.
Humans make things safe, clean, and healthy.
‘Healthy’ is now being defined in radically different ways, by different interest groups.
In the low-carb universe, vegetables are served with lots of butter, mayonnaise, and hollandaise.
There are structural reasons for the low quality of much scientific research.
We need to lose our naivete. Many scientific findings are neither crisp nor clear.
Fruit may be natural, but its sugar content has increased due to selective breeding.
If fat were the villain we’ve been told it is, I should have gained 40 pounds.
People who exercise regularly still gain weight.
Changing definitions of ‘normal’ blood pressure means more people are coping with drug side effects.
Doctors and nurses rarely follow the rules when collecting important info about our health.
Standard medical practice is often pointless, risky – and a waste of money.
The American Heart Association didn’t bother to replicate pivotal research before it told the public to change its behaviour. The result was an uncontrolled public health experiment.
When scientists began believing that high fat diets & heart disease went together, this wasn’t true in 8 European countries.
After the high-carbohydrate Food Pyramid was introduced, diabetes shot through the roof.
Whether it’s climate science or medical science, a fake crisis leads to bad decisions that harm real people.
Climate science and medical science have things in common. Including suspect behaviour on the part of the United Nations.
