Malaria, Facebook, FTC discussed on Geek News Central


Per hundred patients. It makes you think a little bit here now if I was family member that have lost a loved one here in the State of Michigan and they were refused the access to this drug. That was at least for two weeks on the radar being known to have had success in France and also had been using it as gentle regimen in China. I think I'd get myself an attorney. It's any say we're GONNA save everybody but at least two studies says it's looking pretty good and and hospital. Physicians and nurses in New York are using it as a prophylactic. The basically protect themselves. Now what is this just to be clear? We know that this is a malaria drug. I took this drug for months on end and doxycycline as well took a variety of drugs to the to prevent malaria when I was travelling overseas for many many years and especially in the early eighties being in places. Even after. Got All my shots. The is on the stuff for years. They care about my heart. They didn't want me get malaria. So I was using it as a prophylactic as a preventive measure to catching malaria not to treat malaria. So these doctors and nurses I think are on track here to have done what they've done and yet in this state out of spite or whatever reason she decided to threaten doctors with administrative action if they used it and I am just not happy. I know a few other states did as administrative actions to stop Dr Shrum like prescribing it for themselves and further their their parents and their kids. But if you got doctors that WanNa do that for the parents or their kids. Then they're gonNA do that for the patients you know. I think all of us would probably at this point with like to have her hands on a little bit of that supply. People say oh. Never take a drug without your doctor's permission she whatever and a lot of people do and have and will do in the future into that at your own risk and I'm not saying we should Be using that when people are dying but after this is all over I can absolutely guarantee you there will people going online ordering this stuff from India and bringing it in and stashing it. I don't Care Peo- don't do that. He would just go ahead. Go about your business so anyway. That's kind of my my irritant right. Now we'll open up the call line at the end of the show today again. You WANNA call in. Mbc Those you watch live if you WANNA stick around get through the actual tech stuff here said me bitch about the doctors which doctors the governor and not complain about the doctors. They're doing they're doing heavy duty right now. They need all our accolades and support. But when I'm a don guess I'm done here talking about the government we can move on but some of you including can't wait to hear Adam Curry in the no agenda. Show talk about this announcement. The FTC today has announced that they're going to sue to unwind Marlboro. Yes the cigarette company. They're twelve point. Eight unwind their eight twelve point. Eight billion dollar investment and. We talked about this on this show. Many vaping maybe you don't care but the two companies are accused of illegally restraining trade. They were the ones that really had a lot of influence. Had stuff run through Congress disc simply destroyed other competitors and At the time even people upset within jewel due to the sudden hypercritical stance of claiming to be a way to help people quit smoking. And then having a mid major investor that was to- tobacco giant S- according to the FTC. The partnership came up after Ultra Algeria. Which is the company that owns brands like Marlboro and Virginia? Slims agreed not to compete with upstart getting exchange for that big steak and It did they conspired and a really bay really turned the tables on a lot of companies in all this stuff about strawberry flavored vaping. And all that stuff all those flavors they were instrumental they were ultimately instrumental in pushing for that band. Now I don't care if you've ape. It's that's your business.
