    The W.H.O. and Pandemics with Dr Meryl Nass

    enSeptember 15, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Concerns over WHO's role in pandemic response and US sovereigntyCritics question WHO's handling of COVID lab leak cover-up and past fabrication of avian flu pandemic, raising concerns about global health initiatives and US sovereignty.

      There are concerns about the WHO's role in global pandemic response and its potential impact on US sovereignty. The WHO's director of science, Jeremy Farrar, has been under scrutiny due to his involvement in the cover-up of the COVID lab leak and his past role in fabricating the 2006 avian flu pandemic. Merrill Nask, a leading bioweapons research expert and frequent podcast guest, shares these concerns. She also reflects on the controversial anthrax attacks case in 2001, which involved her friend and fellow researcher Bruce Ivins, and the subsequent mishandling of the investigation by the FBI. Despite the controversy surrounding Farrar and the WHO, it's crucial for the public to stay informed and engaged in discussions surrounding global health initiatives and their potential implications.

    • Sir Jeremy Farrar's past pandemic declarations and role in discrediting effective COVID-19 drugsSir Jeremy Farrar's history of declaring potential pandemics and his role in discrediting hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin during the COVID-19 pandemic raise questions about his motivations and credibility.

      Sir Jeremy Farrar, a prominent public health figure, has a history of declaring potential pandemics, some of which have not materialized. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he played a role in discrediting hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, effective therapeutic drugs against COVID-19, to pave the way for vaccines. His actions were part of a larger effort to discredit the drugs due to US laws preventing emergency use authorization of vaccines if effective drugs exist for the target disease. Farrar's past instances of raising alarm over bird flu and swine flu that did not materialize raise questions about his approach and motivations. His involvement in gain-of-function studies in Wuhan may also be concerning, as it could have contributed to the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, it is essential to critically evaluate the credibility of pandemic-related declarations and the potential motivations of those making them.

    • Proposed pandemic treaty could impact global health policyThe proposed pandemic treaty between WHO and UN could lead to increased international health regulations, including the declaration of pandemics, enforcing drug/vaccine use, and controlling manufacturing and distribution of necessary materials, raising concerns over sovereignty and government control.

      There is currently a proposed pandemic treaty in the works between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations, which could have significant implications for global health policy. The treaty, which incentivizes gain-of-function research and the sharing of potential pandemic pathogens, has been criticized for its potential dangers and lack of transparency. The WHO director-general could declare a pandemic and enforce international health regulations, including instructing nations to use specific drugs or vaccines and directing the manufacture and distribution of necessary materials. The concept of "One Health," which originally focused on the transmission of illnesses between humans and animals, has been expanded to include all aspects of the natural world and is being embedded into legal frameworks in various countries, raising concerns about sovereignty and government control over health-related issues.

    • Factory Farms: The Real Pandemic ThreatFactory farms pose a greater risk for pandemics than wild animals due to the breeding grounds for multidrug-resistant bacteria and the use of subtherapeutic antibiotics.

      The real concern for governments and health organizations regarding pandemics should be the shutdown of factory farming and the use of subtherapeutic antibiotics, rather than wet markets. Factory farms are breeding grounds for multidrug-resistant bacteria and could pose a greater risk for pandemics than wild animals. Contrary to popular belief, the last major pandemic, the Spanish flu, was not caused by a virus but by bacteriological pneumonia and meningitis. Historically, pandemics have been rare, and the most successful viruses are those that do not make their hosts sick. Furthermore, there are numerous therapeutic drugs available that could effectively treat pandemics if they were to occur. The idea that viruses or bacteria are constantly jumping to humans from the wild and causing pandemics is a myth. Instead, the focus should be on preventing the development of new bioweapons through synthetic biology and genetic engineering techniques.

    • Modern pandemics may have originated in laboratoriesThe belief that pandemics originate from wild animals is a common misconception, and some pandemics like RSV and influenza may have originated in laboratories. Funding dependencies in the scientific community may hinder the exploration of this possibility, potentially impacting public trust in science.

      The origins of many modern pandemics, including HIV, Ebola, and influenza, are not definitively proven to have originated in the wild, but rather may have originated in laboratories. The idea that pandemics primarily originate from wild animals is a common belief, but it's a false concept that has received significant funding and support from the scientific community. Some notable examples of pandemics with potential laboratory origins include RSV from a military lab in Maryland and influenza from a military base in Kansas. The speaker argues that the scientific community's unwillingness to challenge this belief is due to funding dependencies, leading to potential conflicts of interest and a lack of trust in science. The speaker's concerns extend beyond pandemics, suggesting that this issue has broader implications for the public's faith in science and its role in addressing issues like climate change.

    • The trust in scientific knowledge and institutions is being questionedTransparency and rigorous testing are crucial to maintain public trust in scientific research despite concerns about potential corruption and federal grant influence.

      The trust in scientific knowledge and institutions is being challenged, with concerns about corruption and the influence of federal grants on research. This was a concern raised by President Eisenhower in his farewell address, predicting the potential corruption of science and democracy. More recently, the discussion has focused on the COVID-19 vaccine and the regulatory process. The FDA's licensing of new versions of the vaccine without requiring additional testing raises questions about the safety and efficacy of these vaccines. The flu vaccine serves as a precedent, as subsequent versions do not need to be tested again as long as they are labeled as flu vaccines. The government's own data shows no reduction in deaths from flu vaccines and even an increased risk of non-flu infections. These concerns underscore the importance of transparency and rigorous testing in scientific research to maintain public trust.

    • Using EU clinical trial data for COVID-19 vaccine authorizationThe FDA authorized COVID-19 vaccines using EU data, costing $120-$130/dose, with the goal to vaccinate all over 6 months, despite concerns about safety, efficacy, potential autoimmune diseases, and presence of DNA plasmids from E. Coli in vaccines.

      The FDA has authorized COVID-19 vaccines without complete human data, using data from EU clinical trials instead. These vaccines, which include Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax, cost between $120 and $130 per dose. The government aims to ensure everyone over 6 months gets vaccinated, even if insurance doesn't cover it. However, there are concerns about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines, particularly the new third version, as there is limited human data available. The spike protein, a toxic substance, may remain in the body and potentially cause autoimmune diseases. Additionally, recent studies suggest the presence of DNA plasmids from E. Coli in the vaccines, which could explain why many people experience side effects after vaccination.

    • Discovery of Carcinogenic Proteins in Polio Vaccines and Privacy Concerns with COVID-19 VaccinesDuring the development of polio vaccines, undisclosed proteins from SV40 virus, linked to cancers and carcinogenic in animals, were discovered. Today, concerns arise over potential carcinogens in COVID-19 vaccines and privacy issues with digital health systems collecting individual health data.

      During the development of polio vaccines in the late 1950s and early 1960s, two undisclosed proteins from the SV40 virus were discovered in the vaccine. This virus, which originated from monkey kidneys used to cultivate the vaccine, has been linked to several cancers and was found to be carcinogenic in animals. An estimated 100 million Americans, including the speaker, were exposed to this virus through the polio vaccine. Fast forward to today, and similar concerns have arisen regarding the COVID-19 vaccines, specifically those from Pfizer. The vaccines contain double-stranded DNA and proteins derived from the vaccines' production process, which could potentially enter the nucleus of cells and cause mutations. Additionally, there is a pending UN meeting on pandemic preparedness where a 13-page document with objectionable content is being kept under a silence procedure. The document calls for digital health systems and the collection of individual health information, raising concerns about privacy and potential misuse of data.

    • International Agencies Push for Global Cooperation in Pandemic PreparednessInternational agencies propose sharing medical records, censorship, One Health promotion, and new financing mechanisms, potentially impacting privacy and debt for poor countries. Stay informed and support legislation like HR 79 to maintain individual rights and healthcare focus.

      International agencies like the WHO and UN are pushing for increased global cooperation in pandemic preparedness, which includes sharing medical records, censorship of misinformation, the promotion of One Health, and the creation of new financing mechanisms. This could lead to potential loss of privacy, indebtedness for poor countries, and a shift in focus from general healthcare to pandemic preparedness. To counter this, individuals can get involved by supporting legislation like HR 79, which aims to defund the WHO and related programs. This is just one aspect of what some perceive as a larger effort for global control in various sectors, including finance and food production. Stay informed and engaged in the political process to make your voice heard.

    • Ensuring Proper Regulation of Healthcare through Senate RatificationThe Senate's role in ratifying WHO treaties, including IHR amendments, is crucial for maintaining trustworthy drugs, vaccines, and public health measures. Vigilance against deregulation efforts and high standards for approvals are necessary.

      It's crucial for the World Health Organization (WHO) treaties, including the International Health Regulations amendments, to undergo Senate ratification. While most treaties aren't ratified, this step is essential to ensure proper regulation and trustworthiness of drugs, vaccines, and public health measures. Additionally, there's a need to be vigilant against deregulation efforts and maintain high standards for drug and vaccine approvals. In the case of Meryl Nass, a physician advocating for transparency in healthcare, she's facing malicious prosecution from a medical board, and her lawsuit against them is ongoing. Ultimately, it's essential for individuals to take responsibility for their health and only trust products that have been thoroughly tested and proven safe and effective.
