The Regime Being Run By Pharmaceutical Companies With Daniel Horowitz
"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir. Gilead, somehow got ahold of it. Look it up. UNC Remdesivir. How is it that the only thing that was ever approved, which as I wrote yesterday have an article on this at the blaze NIH's own website says it causes liver toxicity and renal failure and we're seeing that with Sony patients, which is why a lot of people come in moderate moderate COVID, they should get over just like they go into the hospital with pneumonia every year. COPD, we have this treatable and they die. And it is the Remdesivir. It's one vicious cycle. So they'll look at Ivermectin C we can't use that and they're like, okay, let's say we're wrong and it's a sugar pill. But it is literally safer than Tylenol, won the Nobel Prize. Every piece of literature says is well tolerated. No one's ever had a problem. Why not try

"One of the very important things to stress with this if the condition is in any way advanced. Copd the patient has very little reserve. So if you have severe emphysema abc throughout the lungs and there are various types of emphysema and when we look at a microscope if you have emphysema throughout the lungs and therefore your lung function is severely impaired if you get an infection on of that your reserve in the lungs to cope with that can be quite severely inhibited. And so patients get into trouble quite quickly. So it's important for these patients to be to consult their physician quickly and the for the physician to fit them into their clinic because they can get quite unwell quite quickly and this is even more important and this has been amplified by the covert epidemic. So john does that. Mean that an individual who gets you know we all get upper respiratory infections. I feel like all winter long sometimes. And does that mean that it's worse for someone who has copd than it would be for you or for me. Perhaps because the baseline is different that the patient stocking with damage lungs and therefore would not be able to cope with an infection of any severity. So it's important. They get seen more quickly and treated more aggressively. Tell me about treatment. Tre- treatment much much of what i described actually sounds quite gloomy because i'm talking about irreversible airflow obstruction and that and advanced disease. But the fact that when you use an inhaler in the laboratory it doesn't show much change in lung. Function doesn't mean that the patients who has copd long-term will not benefit from inhale treatment. So it haled's these agonists inhaled bronco dye lasers that opened up. The airways can help in more suffer ways within the lung by improving vital capacity and therefore should be prescribed and on many patients find them helpful. If the condition is severe nebulizer Bronco dye lasers machine. You plug in the wall and put in a row the larger dose and other other than Eventually like drugs. The so called anti cholinergic drugs can also be very helpful in patients with with copd so inhale treatment is is very important now. There has been a long base in my specialty about whether or not to use inhaled corticosteroids and copd does now good evidence that in fact the inflammation in the lungs is helped even though there's a small extra risk of other infections such as new melania. But there's good evidence that using a regular inhaler court or steroid will quietly airway reduced. The cough on may help the patients breathlessness. Then what about the use of oxygen. John when we see people wearing oxygen or using no individuals use at night is that for. Copd it's foresee for copd amongst other conditions and oxygen is unless the diseases advanced. Oxygen is rarely necessary on the patient who gets intermittently little breathless and takes a couple of of oxygen. That's not the right way to use when copd becomes quite advanced in. The patient has chronically low oxygen in the blood when you look at on the finger pulse up similar. And if it's if the option is persistently low and therefore will be very low at nice. Giving long-term oxygen treatment is helpful and that means that the patient uses oxygen over nice on indeed for perhaps for many of the waking hours during the day and that will reduce the The incidence of rice hot failure because low chronic low blood. Oxygen affects the right side of the heart and raising the ultra. Jim for as much as we can over a prolonged period of time will will help to prevent the onset of bass so but using oxygen on a sort of as required basis at may.

"Those those changes in the lung that you described on imaging studies like chest x ray or cat scan. Yes the chest. X ray is helpful. It's a time honored to of our by specialty. In in the profession and the lungs tend to become a bit over inflated. The patient can become barrel chested. Because it's easier to get air in than it is to get us out so you're trap air within the lungs and the patients tend to lift the shoulders up and down so the chest x ray control over inflated lungs. It's quite difficult to make a definitive diagnosis of emphysema..

"In the pain clinic who have had to reverse bad habits. Smoking certainly seems to be one of the things. That's most difficult to give up. There is quite good evidence that it's as difficult as stopping narcotics. Nicotine is nicotine. It's hugely addictive. Despite claims to the country in the past nicotine is hugely addictive. So we're going to be very sensitive and careful how we handle our patients and that we don't we don't do finger-wagging or or lecture. It's a very tough thing to do. But it's our job and our responsibility to give them the best advice to tell them what the consequences might be if they don't stop john deasy much. Copd and individuals who've never smoked themselves but ben exposed chronically to secondhand smoke. Yes you do see see that is clearly. It's not as as severe or as common as those who take in the the smoke directly themselves which is environmental smoke can also Can also damage the lungs. A particularly. If you have a background of other lung disease if you're an asthmatic on you live with a smoker. Then you're airways would become irritated and inflamed by their smoke and more so than a normal person a non asthmatic living with a smoker. So if you already have lung disease and you've got a member of your household who smokes. They should be asked to step outside to distribute the smoke in the outside air run than in in their in their home. John in medicine we talk a lot about signs and symptoms signs being things that you and i could observe when we see a patient and symptoms being with the patient describes to us or experiences. What might a an individual who is suffering from copd experience. Well one of the definitions of of of chronic. Bronchitis is that you have at coughing sputum for more than three consecutive months in two consecutive years. Usually the winter months. So recurrent episodes of cough and phlegm is a cardinal feature over time than you develop more breathlessness and you were notice that climbing stairs or walking and talking with your partner and that you find that more difficult and that that progresses over time until such time as it seriously interfering with your ability to carry out your normal daily activities so coffin..

"An indeed treatment for many aspects of us are available. So it's great for people to consult the internet but people should also be consulting their physician to filter that information to give a realistic appraisal of what their situation is. I touched on this. Just a bit in the intro. But who would be most at of developing copd. Well it depends. It depends to some extent on where you are in the world not in In developed countries tobacco smoking. Tobacco is one two and three. It's a tobacco. Damages the airways it damages the substance of the lungs as well and causes emphysema and is the major cause of copd and should be what it should be avoided at all costs anyway but certainly anybody who's developed the condition. If you want to stop the progress of the condition you must stop smoking. And in the in the developing world. And we've come to understand now that there are other factors that may be played because people who do not smoke may be living in very enclosed environments with fires indoor fires in in areas that are not well ventilated on the nation of that that smoke and and and the the the particles the pollutants will damage their lungs in a very similar way to a smoker. You know that environment of course for these people is much more difficult to avoid them. The cigarette smoking at that we see in In other parts of the world. But they're the two major factors. There are some inherited conditions that lead to a similar syndrome. They are very rare but People with copd are more at risk from lung as you said from lung cancer from heart disease coronary artery disease on indeed at the end stage of the condition from heart failure right heart failure because their blood oxygen is so low. It seems that everyone that i interviewed for this show tells us that smoking is bad so i guess we can start with that right. I think we if we've finished without as well. That would be all right with me. Smoking is poisonous. It's a it's an unnatural thing to do to inhale voluntarily in had smoke into our lungs is hugely addictive because of the nicotine content. So you know i never. I try never to lecture patients who smoke because it is tough is really tough to give up smoking. And the addiction to the nicotine the nicotine receptors that are open in the brain crying out for more nicotine at creates the need curiously enough. It's not the nicotine that does the damage in the main is the other stuff the the the other constituents of cigarette smoke but the nicotine is what addict to and the so difficult to stop and there's an old and very bad joke at that says. Oh i've given. It's easy to give up smoking. I've done it many times. And that's that's a factor. That's the p people give up. And then they relax a little bit and they start again under the same time and time again and of course every cigarette smoke does some damage so the strongest puffs of advice here is to quit smoking to avoid smoking to avoid smoking smoking your environment and if you can do from speaking to my.

CDC says fully vaccinated people can gather indoors without masks
"Got mortgaged news on vaccinations and on CDC guidance earlier today. Doctor to net. Nash Watt are Fox News colleague joined us in the first hour to discuss the implications of what we're learning here is part of that conversation. If you could just walk us through what you heard this morning. What the big takeaways are what the implications are for people. He got so guys, This is really incredible news, and I'm just really excited. Ecstatic about it, because what this tells us it symbolizes that the end is here. It symbolizes that we have control and it gives us social premiums and gives us a taste of them of feet. And when you provide clear and realistic guidance to Americans, that's gonna increase compliance, and it's really going to get a Further where we need to be faster. So I think this is an important, very important step that has been long awaited, and it makes sense that with the first group that she mentioned a beautifully vaccinated and your mom and your parents, your neighbors fully vaccinated. It's okay to be around them indoors in a small group without a mask, But just use your common sense if you're vaccinated and you're around other people. You are not, and they're at high risk. You might want to just be careful where your mask Until that person who is high risk is able to get their vaccine because it's your high risk in the first place. They should be vaccinated. So I know it's a little bit cumbersome, but it's just a matter of time. Remember, by the end of May, everyone is gonna have according to president right and everyone is going to have access to the vaccine on. But this is really very hopeful. Good news. Because we're almost there. We're at the home stretch and it's It's a point to take these these steps because, remember, the vaccine is not 100% effective. Right, but it's I mean, it's awfully close, right? And so you start adding up these numbers, you say Okay, well, because this is one of the things that Doubters will bring up. Well, it's not 100% effective. Well, that's true of almost every vaccine ever. Right. It's it's about managing expectations and managing risk. And we have a disease that is, you know, 99 plus percent survival rate if you get it. Then, if you have most people with vaccines that are between let's say 86 94% effective. The math just gets so much better for society as a whole, and we're back to something close to a normal risk scenario where we've all been living our lives under that type of rest scenario. For years and years. Right, so the vector after the vaccinated, plus vaccinated person, right, So if you've got a small group of people, everyone's been vaccinated. You all can get together in. The CDC is saying it again. This is a recommendation. They don't actually Set policy that doesn't have, you know legal weight, But their recommendation based on what they say is the best science is and that first part, I think is just totally common sense toe toe Average people. If you've got a group of folks who've all been vaccinated, Of course, they should be able to hang out indoors outdoors wherever they want to be. Without masks without social distancing, because they're all safe themselves, and they're safe from each other. The one where I guess it is a little bit. Mork confusing. And if you could just maybe parse out some of this guide us a little bit, doctor. It is the permission that they're giving, or at least in their recommendations. That people who are vaccinated can safely gather with unvaccinated people as well. Talking about vaccinated grand parents and their unvaccinated, you know, families or grandkids, or, you know groups of friends and they're saying be careful. It kind of depends on who the unvaccinated people are. But we're not saying that it is unsafe. For vaccinated people to hang out Now indoors. No, masking know, distancing with some unvaccinated. Others Just spell that a little bit more further. A little bit further for us, please. Yes, that's correct and going back to the first one. Where if you're fully vaccinated, That means you have to be two weeks out from your second dose or two weeks out from the Johnson Johnson because I got to tell you guys this past weekend I had a lot of positive covert patients, and many of them had only had their first dose. Even other symptoms were very mild. So you want to make sure that it's both doses and infinitely two weeks after Second does now when it comes to not wearing your mask. If you're living in the same household with others who are not vaccinated, it is a caveat is those who are not vaccinated in that trustful. They are how rich you might want to take precautions. If they have COPD or diabetes or heart disease. You might want to take precautions. And the thing is, if you're mixing more than one household member, if you're increasing the size of the gathering You're increasing the risk of possible transmission. That's when they're that's when they say.
