  1. The WHO are only as accurate as the data getting reported.So many People in the USA dying from Cancer, Strokes,Heart Attacks, Accidents, Drownings,assault,gunshot were recorded as a Covid death. Numbers were blown out of proportion.

  2. This purposely poisoned polluted prison planet will never be our home. This earth is what it is and is what it isn't. Learn to watch your dreams at night, it's in dreams we can become more aware. Sing the Nu-u-u-u before you fall asleep for 10 minutes and see what life shares with you. Dreams is the real connection and this life is the passing dream.

  3. Don't forget whilst internal flights were stopped in China the international flights out of the country were allowed to continue through Spring Festival, which is the biggest yearly migration of humans.

  4. The WHO waited until March because if lockdowns were imposed in December it would be a clear demonstration that lockdowns don't work. Therefore by imposing them in March they would coincide with the seasonal decrease in respiratory virus cases therefore they could pretend lockdowns worked.

  5. I've been exposed to covid a few times. I've never caught it. When I give blood there's no trace of it. I don't understand how I haven't caught any if the strains. My lungs are damage too which also blows my mind.

  6. Hi Doc , what are your thoughts on Sulforaphane reason I ask is that by coincidence in 2020 aftef 2 years of daily acid reflux ,antacids ,sleeping on my left side etc I decided to try and find the cause and found it was hi- pylori which can be neutralised with sulforaphane. So I found its in cruciferous veg but is destroyed or at least the myrosinase that releases it , when cooked. Broccoli has the most ,ate some raw and it appeared to work so grew it in a jar from seeds no soil, just rinsing twice a day for 5 days and bingo you have a hard full of young broccoli that looks like cress . Eat as a salad. I was a carer in a care home then and never caught covid and have since noticed that Google sulforaphane and just about any condition and it has positive results . Including the citokine storm is it ? probably spelt that wrong . Also see Rhonda Patrick PHD on its effect on cancer. Just wondered what your thoughts are on it. Apparently it's veg own built in insecticide released when bitten or torn and why for broccoli farmers need not spray it so much. But apparently has a positive effect on our immune system. Since making a jar every other week I have gone from 2 years daily of AR to zero just once last Xmas day after evening cheese cake.

  7. Hi Dr. Campbell. I would love to hear your thoughts on the Strep A thing that's going around in The UK at the moment. Apparently at least six children have sadly died of it .
