Dawn Lester, What Really Makes You Ill?
The world is claimed to be in the grip of a deadly pandemic.
However, although humanity is genuinely suffering, the real reason for this is not an infectious disease caused by a dangerous virus, as explained in our previous article entitled COVID: An Overview as well as in our book WHAT REALLY MAKES YOU ILL? WHY EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT DISEASE IS WRONG.
Instead, the world is suffering from a pandemic of misinformation, deception and outright lies that have been and continue to be promulgated on a daily basis by the mainstream media; the symptoms of this real pandemic also include blind obedience to “authority” and belief in the words of so-called “experts.”
Unfortunately, the “alternative” media is not entirely blameless; they too are responsible for exacerbating the suffering through their promulgation of misinformation, which although of a different nature from that of the MSM, is nevertheless similarly fueling confusion and increasing the level of fear in the minds of the general public. This includes many people who are aware that there is something “wrong” with what we are being told about “COVID” but have not understood that the “germ theory” is a fallacy.
The layers of deception are truly deep and penetrating!
We briefly mentioned some of the misleading claims about the COVID vaccines in our previous article, but more claims have recently been made that are also misleading. This has motivated us to provide a more detailed discussion of such claims to explain the flawed ideas on which they are based and thereby help to allay people’s fears.
If you have not already done so, we recommend that, before continuing with this article, you read our previous one, because it explains the fundamentally false nature of the idea that there is a real disease called COVID-19 that is caused by a real “virus” called SARS-CoV-2, which is claimed to be a member of the coronavirus family.
The imposition in early 2020 of draconian measures, such as lockdowns, mask-wearing and social distancing, encouraged various scientists to speak out and correctly state that these measures were excessive and inappropriate. However, some of these scientists, such as Professor Dolores Cahill and Dr. Judy Mikovits for example, promoted the use of hydroxychloroquine as a suitable treatment for “COVID-19,” even though they seemed to acknowledge that the “disease” was not as severe as the reports indicated. They were not the only scientists promoting this message through various channels on the alternative media, but they did seem to be two of the more prominent voices.
It should be noted that hydroxychloroquine is used as a treatment for malaria on the basis that it will kill the parasites claimed to be the causal agent of this disease. This means that hydroxychloroquine is therefore toxic by intent as well as by its nature, as can be seen by the reported side effects that include vomiting and diarrhea. More serious side effects of hydroxychloroquine, especially when taken in large doses, can include arrhythmia and sudden cardiac arrest.
The situation worsened after December 2020 when COVID-19 vaccination programs started to be implemented around the world. Unsurprisingly, these programs were supported and promoted by the MSM as the “solution” to COVID.
There were genuine concerns about the vaccines being raised by people within the alternative media, mainly on the basis that vaccines are known to be harmful. There were also many other claims, one of which was that these new vaccines did not contain “the virus” but instead only contained genetic material specific to it, which meant that these shots were not vaccines in the usual understanding of the term. As a result, many people refer to these shots as “gene therapy.” Others have said that they are not to be considered as any form of “therapy.”
The COVID “vaccines” currently in use are not all produced in the same way. However, the main focus of attention has been on mRNA “vaccines” that are claimed to contain genetically engineered mRNA, which, when injected into the body, will instruct cells to make the “spike protein” of the virus. According to the vaccine manufacturers, this will cause the body to manufacture antibodies against the spike protein and protect people from any future “infections” of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
The fact that these vaccines inject foreign genetic material into the body unfortunately encouraged a number of reports that suggested, some more emphatically than others, that these shots would “genetically modify” people who received them. Although this idea is clearly worrying, it is not based on any sound science; there is no evidence that the mRNA included in any vaccine has the ability to completely take over the body’s entire genome and “genetically modify” it. The idea that this will happen is pure speculation; it has never been proven. It should also be remembered that, as discussed in our earlier article, these vaccines are experimental and are still undergoing clinical trials; in other words, their effects, both short-term and long-term, are unknown.
This is not to deny that the vaccines contain substances that are highly toxic and cause serious adverse effects within the human body; this has already been demonstrated by the increasing numbers of adverse events caused by the vaccines, as discussed in our previous article. But these adverse events show that people have been poisoned; they do not show that people have been genetically modified.
A new element was recently introduced into the narrative that exacerbated the problem and increased the level of confusion; this was a video interview that made its appearance in March 2021. This interview was with a vaccine developer by the name of Geert Vanden Bossche, who had written an open letter to health authorities, including the WHO, to express his concerns about the rollout of mass vaccination. Although his letter asked for the immediate cessation of mass vaccination, which is a rather unusual position for a vaccine developer, his concern relates to what he referred to as “immune escape.”
The reason he claimed to be worried is based on the idea that the vaccines would “teach” the immune system to only attack the strain of the virus used for the vaccines and would not teach it to recognize any others. The problem, according to Vanden Bossche, is that the vaccine-injected viruses will mutate in the body and be able to avoid the immune system’s instructions to attack them. This, he claims, would allow these “mutant viruses,” which are claimed to be more deadly than the original strain, to escape from the body in a process called “shedding” and “infect” other people, all of which would lead to further outbreaks and pandemics of much more serious disease.
Unfortunately, the ideas promoted by Vanden Bossche were quickly taken up by a number of alternative media content creators, most notably Del Bigtree and Dr. Vernon Coleman, both of whom proclaimed this information to be extremely important. They both promoted their videos discussing Vanden Bossche’s ideas as the most important videos they had made and that the information should be shared widely.
The support by Dr. Coleman and Del Bigtree for the idea that mass vaccinations should stop was not surprising considering their stance on vaccines. But while spreading correct information about the dangers of vaccines, they were also spreading misinformation, namely: the existence of “viruses” and the claims that they are pathogens; the idea that viruses can “mutate” and cause even more deadly diseases; and the concept of “asymptomatic carriers.”
Yet these alternative media content creators, especially the two named above, have had ample time since the beginning of this alleged pandemic to be able to conduct the necessary research and discover that there is no evidence that any virus is the cause of any disease. They should also have realized that the concept of “asymptomatic carriers” falsifies the claim that a “virus” is the cause of disease because it fails Koch’s first Postulate, which claims that a pathogen must always be found in people with the disease it is claimed to cause and never be found in someone without the disease. The significance of this is because diseases are determined by the symptoms they are claimed to produce; people who have no symptoms are not ill with any disease. Any “germ” found in the body of a person without symptoms cannot be a pathogen.
The problems with the ideas about “germs” and the true nature of what is called “disease” are explained in detail in our book.
The situation has, however, taken yet another twist and turn with a recent spate of reports about a variety of health problems that people have experienced. Although many health problems have been reported by people who have received one or more doses of the COVID vaccine, there are reports that certain health problems have also been experienced by unvaccinated people. Many of the health problems reported by women relate to their menstrual cycles, such as excessive blood loss, some have even reported miscarriages; however, men have also reported having experienced a range of health problems, some of which relate to their reproductive systems.
One of the main concerns is that the health problems reported by unvaccinated people are being attributed to their having had close contact with people who have been vaccinated. This has inevitably led to the proposal of various theories about how vaccinated people can “transmit” something from their bodies to unvaccinated people and cause them to experience these health problems.
One theory is that the vaccines “shed” viruses that are able to infect other people who are in close proximity to them. However, as has been noted, the COVID vaccines do not contain so-called viruses, which means that they cannot shed them. Nevertheless, many people in the “alternative health” community who have retained their belief in pathogenic viruses have promoted this idea.
Another significant contribution to the debate and the promulgation of theories to explain this phenomenon was made in a roundtable discussion of five doctors, including Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. In this video discussion, Dr. Tenpenny stated that the COVID vaccines are very different from those for viral diseases, such as polio and chickenpox vaccines, which she states contain “live viruses” that can be shed. This clearly shows that she has retained her belief in pathogenic viruses. However, she stated that because the COVID shots do not contain viruses, there must be something else that is being transmitted, although she admitted that, at that stage, they had not identified what that “something” was.
The problem with this approach is that it is pure speculation; until there is evidence that “something” actually is being transmitted between people, it is irresponsible to make such claims about how a phenomenon appears to occur. It is a truism that appearances can be deceptive.
Another member of the roundtable discussion was Dr. Carrie Madej, one of the doctors who has made claims that the vaccines will genetically modify people. This is an unproven claim. But it is also fundamentally flawed because it denies the body’s mechanisms that recognize toxic material and make every effort to eliminate it. Although it is claimed that the vaccines have the ability to “trick” the body into believing that the vaccine ingredients are not foreign toxic material that needs to be expelled, this claim is unproven; the body is not an inert machine that can be “tricked.”
In a more recent interview, Dr. Tenpenny has claimed that the mechanism by which the unvaccinated are affected by the vaccinated involves the transmission of the “spike protein” of the virus. This clearly cannot be the case for all of the reasons discussed in our previous article as well as our book.
Unfortunately, Dr. Tenpenny also recommends that people take ivermectin, which she claims is “safe.” It should be noted that ivermectin is referred to as an antiparasitic treatment, which means that, like hydroxychloroquine, it is also toxic by nature and by intent. This can be seen by some of the reported side effects that also include vomiting and diarrhea, both of which are clear indications of its toxicity and the body’s efforts to expel it.
There are clearly many problems with these reports and the speculative ideas that are being generated about what could be causing health problems in the unvaccinated. One of the problems is the heightened fear they are generating.
Another is that there is no information being collected and collated about the real scale of the situation; especially as the health problems being reported are not entirely new. Although not necessarily common, they do occur. This is not to deny that people are experiencing serious adverse health problems, but it is important to question the explanations that are being proposed for their occurrence especially when they are based on flawed theories.
One possibility is that there is an increase in the reporting of such events rather than an increase in their actual incidence. Whether increased reporting is in fact what is happening cannot be known in the absence of any data being properly collected and analyzed.
Another possibility is that these unvaccinated people have been exposed to a new harmful toxin or to an increased level of an existing toxin, whether chemical or electromagnetic in nature. As discussed in detail in our book, these sorts of exposures comprise two of the four factors that cause illness.
It is important to emphasize that there is no evidence that demonstrates people can transmit the toxins they expel from their bodies to other people and cause them to become ill. If this were the case, we would have been poisoning each other for decades, if not longer.
Another of the four factors we refer to in our book is prolonged emotional stress. It is a well-known fact that stress can cause harm to the body through the release of certain hormones. But harm can also be induced in the body as the result of a fear about something that could harm the body; this would certainly describe the state of mind that the overwhelming majority of the population has experienced for more than a year.
The idea that fear can induce adverse effects within the body is a known phenomenon called the “nocebo effect.” Like its opposite, the placebo effect, the nocebo effect is a powerful demonstration of the power of the mind. The placebo and nocebo effects are usually thought of with respect to the experience of an individual; however, Dr. Lissa Rankin explains in her book MIND OVER MEDICINE that the nocebo effect is not limited to individuals and can be experienced by a group of people, which is also referred to as “mass psychogenic illness.”
It is abundantly clear that the world population has certainly been subjected to mass fear-mongering for more than a year and there is more than ample evidence of the harmful effects of living in a constant state of fear. It cannot therefore be dismissed that there is likely to be an element of a mass nocebo effect.
It is possible that there are other reasons for these symptoms and that they may be found at a later date. But what is of fundamental importance is that any reasons suggested for these phenomena should not be based on unfounded ideas, especially the fundamentally flawed germ theory. It should be clear that any ideas based on unproven theories will not truly explain any phenomenon.
It is important that people understand that there is no evidence, and never has been, that any particle that has erroneously been labelled a “virus” has ever been proven to be harmful to health. Armed with this understanding, people will be able to recognize unproven ideas and speculations and not be drawn further into the state of fear, which will certainly be harmful to their health.
