Early in the exploding firestorm called COVID, I chanced to connect with Thomas S. Cowan, MD. Responding to something I wrote, Tom replied, “Once you are suckered by the numbers you’re lost.” Nothing comes as close to summarizing the essence of this coordinated global event as - suckered by the numbers.
Like the Greek Hydra, COVID has many heads; social, public health, political, economic, corporate interests, global communications, science, research, biotechnology, verifiable facts, conspiracy theories, educational impact, small business failures, psychological consequences; anxiety, depression, suicide, expanding poverty, and many more. And each of these facets involves ‘the numbers.’ And the numbers are all based on a theory called infectious-contagion.
Tom’s insight goes deep, to the very heart from which all of Hydra’s heads emerge. Tom and his colleague, Sally Fallon Morell’s (Founder of the Weston Price Foundation), new book The Contagion Myth, why viruses, including coronavirus, are not the cause of disease, challenge the very foundation of COVID, as a cause and implicitly challenging equally all the proposed preventions and treatments, that illnesses are passed from one person to another.
“Everyone knows microbes and viruses are contagious, so it must be true.” But is it true? Is contagion proven? And more importantly; what if infectious contagion is false? What then?
