So some people want to use Ivermectin to treat a recent ‘pandemic’ or whatever
Well the World Health Organization, FDA, and various doctors and Pharmaceuticals including Political Talking head Pseudo Scientist Anthony Faucci says Ivermectin Bad (or inadvisable) for treating a recent ‘pandemic’
WTF is Ivermectin?
Ivermectin, is a drug used to fight parasites in third-world countries. It did wonders and got FDA approval for the specific parasitic issues and stuff. You can read more here, or just do a web search or something. idc.
It’s cheap as fuck, less than 10 dollars a day. Which poses a conflict of interest to people and organizations that want to peddle pseudo-meds on a silver plater for more than ten dollars a pop.
Why am I saying it’s a scam?
Simple, there was this study performed by the Jerusalem Post;
Here’s the link to the article
This was some ‘good’ science because it was conducted as a randomized, controlled, double-blinded trial. Which means something in the scientism papal.
Here are key quotes out of 89
patients Test Subjects;
Nearly 72% of volunteers treated with ivermectin tested negative for the virus by day six. In contrast, only 50% of those who received the placebo tested negative.
IN ADDITION, the study looked at culture viability, meaning how infectious the patients were, and found that only 13% of ivermectin patients were infectious after six days, compared with 50% of the placebo group
“Our study shows first and foremost that ivermectin has antiviral activity,” Schwartz said. “It also shows that there is almost a 100% chance that a person will be noninfectious in four to six days, which could lead to shortening isolation time for these people. This could have a huge economic and social impact.”
This study, as of writing, has not yet been peer reviewed.

My Scientific review of poor-ing through the data
(for the record, I didn’t look at any of the data. Just the percentages)
From that study above a placebo is 50% effective against getting something.
In fact, some people say even if you get that something, that you have a 97% survival rate.
And here is a Alternative Press with some survival numbers;
So, in theory, (if we were to practice pseudo science and use that 50% placebo rate) you have about a 50% chance of being 98% safe (after contracting the pandemic) or 50% chance of being 100% safe (never had contracted the pandemic).
Which is like 99% chance of being safe. ( (0.98+1.00)/2 ) – 0.99
But that 1ish% is not a safe bet.
Would you really risk that 1% chance? (I sure fucking would)
why would you pay for treatment when a Placebo is free? Just believe.
I know I’m saying something is a scam, but sometimes if you read in between the lines, you might know that what I’m really saying is that something(else) is a scam.
I’m not a real doctor (I never said I was, for the record).
And I can’t practice medicine since the last time someone wanted a leg amputated, something about people screaming and yelling ‘wrong patient’ and other noise. Worst time to do surprise operations in a
This is all a joke and shouldn’t be taken seriously. Don’t look at the numbers, don’t do the research, GME is a failing brick and mortar store, All is well in Ba Sing Se, eat the bug, have blind-faith in TRUST THE SCIENCE, etc etc.
