Americans are being frightened by the media and experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci into believing that we are in a crisis of skyrocketing COVID-19 cases due to the reopenings of communities in the US. States that had survived the first explosive wave of COVID-19, such as Florida, Texas, and other Southern and Southwestern states, were literally beginning to save America as they stimulated their economies, providing a vital lift to our national economic, social and emotional well-being. When these states became more open the numbers of deaths from COVID-19 remained reassuringly low.
In the past couple of weeks the nation is being loudly informed by experts and media that there has been an explosion of new COVID-19 cases in exactly those states that had done so well before, including Florida and Texas, two of the nation’s biggest contributors to the national economy.
A Fake Explosion of Coronavirus Cases?
We were shocked to discover that the “explosion” may have more to do with the loosening of CDC standards for reporting COVID 19 cases than with any real resurgence. Included in the new CDC standards are such criteria as this: If you have spent 10 minutes near a probable case and are found on contact tracing to have any number of symptoms that could be caused by asthma, allergy or the common cold, you are counted as a COVID-19 case, even without any laboratory testing result.
The CDC revised criteria for health departments on April 5, 2020. The revisions have been slowly working their way through the state health departments including Texas which, on May 11, 2020, issued its own new standards based on CDC’s, loosening criteria for diagnosing COVID-19 cases. Texas’s state health department standards for defining COVID-19 cases was then sent to all Texas counties where the basic collection of COVID-19 cases begins.
Deaths Are Not Escalating
It is well known that the numbers of COVID-19 deaths have already been padded. Yet there has been no frightening uptick in deaths in the United States despite the combined forces of the urban riots, defiant gatherings on beaches and elsewhere, and the official openings of many states. This good news about the relatively few new deaths has been ignored by Fauci and the media; but you can follow it on the daily updated chart at the top of our Coronavirus Resource Center.
So there is no threatening increase in deaths from COVID-19 in the United States! Great news. But we hear little of this welcome information. Where we used to see headlines every day about deaths, now our attention is being drawn to the “exploding” new cases.
Further, it appears that because Fauci, the media and the Deep State cannot demonstrate a threatening increase in deaths, the CDC has now decided they have to pad the numbers of new COVID-19 cases. Dr. Fauci, who had been mostly missing from the public limelight for weeks, is once again making media rounds to tell us how to live our lives, while bringing us dire warnings about supposedly staggering numbers of cases and possible deaths on the horizon.
Throughout all of this, three basic facts have been ignored. First, the only reason for the shutdown was to prevent such a rapid escalation in COVID-19 cases that the health system would “collapse.” Second, most of the country, especially those up to about age forty, will inevitably get SARS-CoV-2 without a high risk of severe or fatal illness and third, by becoming exposed people will create the herd immunity that will ultimately protect us older and more vulnerable people.
Instead, this is what we heard on June 30th from Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: “The United States may soon record as many as 100,000 new cases of COVID-19 a day if the current trajectory of the outbreak is not changed.”
We ask, “So what?” Was there ever any doubt that tens of millions—not a mere hundred thousand a day—would contract this highly infectious disease that mercifully rarely does serious harm to anyone but the elderly and immune compromised? This is clearly a case of the Deep State against America and our nation’s vigorous attempts to quickly recover from the draconian COVID-19 lockdown of the spring of 2020.
A House Built on the Sand of Uncertain Testing
Since the beginning of the pandemic in the United States, the CDC has failed to provide statistical clarity. According to ABC News, the initial COVID-19 test kits created by the CDC failed because of a “contaminated component.” Those kits were pulled back after giving a large number of false positives.
Then on May 21st The Atlantic reported that the CDC was requiring that positive tests for antibodies (indications that a patient has had COVID-19 at some earlier time) were to be included in the daily count of new COVID-19 cases. As The Atlantic asked, “How Could the CDC Make That Mistake?” Not only was the logic off—antibodies do not indicate a new case, but an old one. The antibody tests, conducted by many different companies with their own concoctions, remained highly suspect.
Now for the Ridiculous Details
The CDC has been loosening its standards for defining a COVID-19 death case. On June 3, 2020, the CDC declared that COVID-19 cases should include not only deaths that were “confirmed,” but also “probable” death cases of COVID-19. A COVID-19 confirmed case is the result of a positive lab test. A death certificate that lists COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2 as cause of death or a significant condition contributing to death is counted as a new case as well even without testing.
Beyond cases associated with death, nonlethal COVID-19 cases are also required to be counted as confirmed cases if they are in fact listed as “probable”. A probable case can be identified if clinical criteria are met for at least two symptoms: fever (measured or subjective), chills, rigors, myalgia, headache, sore throat, or new nose and taste disorders. Or if a person has at least one symptom of cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. Or if a person has a severe respiratory illness and no alternative more likely diagnosis is found.
In addition, the person suspected of being positive of COVID-19 has to have been in contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID 19, or someone who had a clinically compatible illness and linkage to a confirmed case of COVID-19. In other words, you are counted as a COVID-19 case if you had any contact with a probable or confirmed case, plus a few symptoms that could be caused by an infinite number of different causes such as asthma, seasonal allergy, exposure to an irritant, a cold, heart trouble or stress.
On the County Level
Collin County in Texas is a good example of how these changing standards affect the numbers of COVID-19 cases counted. During the May 18, 2020 Collin County Commissioners Court, Administrative Services gave a Power Point presentation on the new case definition for COVID-19. She referred to the Texas Department of State Health Services guidelines that had been distributed May 11, 2020. Prior to the changes, the case definition for a confirmed case of COVID-19 was a positive PCR (swab test for present infection) lab result for COVID-19.
The new case definitions expand the total count of COVID19 cases to many times the original confirmed cases. The numbers of death cases expand also as positive lab results are no longer required for the counting of a COVID-19 death. In each category the counted cases will be many times higher. According to the CDC FAQ: COVID-19 Data and Surveillance, “A COVID-19 case includes confirmed and probable cases and deaths.”
So At Least the new CDC Standards are Being Standardized?
No, as it turns out, some states and counties are implementing the new CDC standards of lumping together confirmed COVID-19 cases and probable COVID-19 cases, and some are not. Over half of the US states are not reporting probable cases along with confirmed cases as of June 9th, 2020. The result is that states that are reporting probable and confirmed cases as confirmed cases, are showing a much higher rate of infection spread.
In Illinois, probable cases were not being reported as of June 8, 2020. Spokesperson for the state’s health department explained probable cases were withheld “because there is concern from the public that the number of deaths is being inflated. . . . We need the public to have confidence in the data and therefore are reporting only those deaths that are laboratory confirmed.” Many other specifics of incomplete or missing data from various states have been uncovered by media investigations, including The Washington Post.
But as can be seen by the Collin County, Texas example earlier in this piece, as counties and states begin to add probable cases into their statistics, the COVID-19 cases will skyrocket. Graphs will shoot up. Fake higher rates of the spread of COVID-19 manipulates governors into prematurely reclosing economies, dragging down the recovery.
Dr. Fauci keeps talking about science but as we describe in reports and videos on our Coronavirus Resource Center, Fauci is not science-based. He is politically motivated, and so ignores the worthlessness of most data emerging from the CDC. Science is based on facts while the data on COVID-19 cases is a jumbled mess and useless for informing how we should deal with opening as a nation.
America, we cannot be too skeptical of bad news coming out from Anthony Fauci, the CDC, pundits, the major media, Deep State, and politicians committed to ruining America’s economy to ensure their own political power. For now, it is reasonable to assume that COVID-19 cases must continue to rise in numbers, probably into the tens of millions, in order to reach herd immunity. Those of us who are older or immune compromised must remain in relative isolation to protect ourselves until herd immunity is achieved, while those of you who are younger go about your business of living, knowing that you have less chance of dying from COVID-19 than from the flu.

Stanford University Legal & Medical Authorities Join Forces To Fashion An Indiscriminate Mandated Mass-Vaccination Plan That Would Frighten The Public, Disregard Lawful Protections Of Informed Consent And Result In Needless Deaths.
Our health overlords propose a dangerous infectious disease control plan that mandates indiscriminate immunization for all Americans, a plan that is far more dangerous than the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic itself.
Writing in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, Stanford Law School and Health Policy departments propose priority vaccination for high-risk groups that comprise the population that are least likely to benefit and most likely to experience side effects and hospitalization from COVID-19 coronavirus immunization, or from any vaccine for that matter.
Initially voluntary then mandated
The Stanford plan would initially roll out as a completely voluntary inoculation scheme to be followed by compulsory vaccination that would penalize refusers with employment suspensions and/or stay-at-home orders.
Prospect of benefiting from vaccination
Their plan calls for a future FDA-licensed vaccine, a vaccine whose side effects will not be completely known until it is widely used, that according to another Stanford University study, would benefit only a miniscule portion of the population. That study showed, as validated by blood tests, the COVID-19 coronavirus only infects Americans at the rate of 1 in 3868 encounters (range 626 to 31,800) with others who are already infected and results in death in only 1 in 6,670,000 contacts among middle-age Americans (range 1.68 to 97.6 million). Despite the fear generated by TV news reports, the risk of acquiring COVID-19 coronavirus infection is remote.
A perfectly safe vaccine may kill frail individuals
With presumption the vaccine is 100% effective, those numbers put a limit on the percent of vaccinated subjects who could possibly benefit from vaccination – – 19 million would be need to be vaccinated for 1 person to avoid death.
Even if only 1% experience side-effects that result in hospitalization, in a population of 328 million Americans, that would result in 3,280,000 vaccine-induced hospitalizations, which would overwhelm the 1-million bed healthcare system.
Using data from prior flu-vaccine studies, about 1% of those vaccinated may require hospitalization after vaccination and 1% of the hospitalized (1 in 200) would die, which would result in 32,800 needless deaths that would likely be blamed on the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The vaccine itself may be perfectly safe when received by healthy subjects. But frail, elderly, malnourished (vitamin and mineral-deficient) individuals would be the most prone to suffer side effects and death when admitted to the hospital with its inherent problems of antibiotic resistance, medication errors, ventilator lung trauma and failure to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies prior to admission.
High-risk individuals least likely to benefit from vaccination
While it may appear wise to vaccinate high-risk individuals (diabetics, hypertensives, obese, autoimmune), these are the very people whose immune systems do not respond well to vaccines and are subject to side effects.
For example, flu shots are not very effective for the very young and the very old. Flu vaccines are 40-60% effective in the population at-large and as low as 23% effective for certain strains of the flu, says a CDC report. As an aside, flu vaccination may actually increase the risk for coronavirus infection via a mechanism called viral interference (by 36% said one recently published study).
But despite the fact you can read that study for yourself, proponents of vaccination deny any such link between prior flu shots and subsequent COVID-19 coronavirus infections. Viral interference is reported in other studies. For example, those individuals who were vaccinated against the flu in the previous fall of 2010 were 1.4 to 2.5 times more likely to become ill from the H1N1 strain of the flu in the following year, which happens to be the predominant influenza strain in circulation this year 2020.)
These high-risk groups have inherent problems activating antibodies against any infectious disease, which is why most vaccines require multiple inoculations and include toxic adjuvants to provoke an immune response.
Also on the priority list for forced vaccination are prisoners, people with prior respiratory problems, nursing home patients and healthcare workers.
Why current treatments are being rejected
The Stanford plan would require evidence that existing treatment or prevention of COVID-19 coronavirus is ineffective, which at the moment is solely comprised of archaic quarantine and lockdown measures and limiting contact with the virus itself by employing face masks and social distancing.
Obesity, further induced by lockdown, increases the risk for COVID-19 related deaths. Indoor lockdown deprives people of sunshine vitamin D that impairs immunity and increases risk for death. Quarantines and lockdowns are counterproductive.
Any prospective treatments, such as hydroxychloroquine and HCQ +zinc, nebulized hydrogen peroxide, as well as vitamin and mineral regimens (zinc, vitamin D, vitamin C, selenium) are ignored and dismissed outright by the CDC, categorized as unproven, even potentially dangerous. There is sufficient evidence for nutrient therapy in the prevention and management of COVID-19 infections.
Natural immunity, T-cells and nutrients
But without a vaccine or an approved treatment, vitamins and minerals have vanished from retail store shelves without widespread reports of any side effects. Zinc therapy alone is authoritatively cited as a remedy or preventive for COVID-19 coronavirus infection. Zinc lozenges are included in the hospital protocol for treatment of COVID-19.
What researchers have discovered during this outbreak of a newly mutated coronavirus that the population is said to have no antibodies against, is that it is not antibodies but rather zinc-dependent T-cells generated in the thymus gland that produce memory immunity against this viral pathogen. The effectiveness of vaccines is commonly determined by antibodies, which some health authorities now question.
Public demand for a vaccine
According to the Stanford report, only about half of the U.S. population plans to be vaccinated against COVID-19 coronavirus. This is why hospitals are over-stating the deaths attributed to COVID-19 and why news agencies create continued fear over a common-cold virus that results in few if any symptoms upon infection and only kills a very few. Our modern healthcare system is over-committed to vaccination. The prospect of a vaccine is dimmed by the fact 90% of vaccines that enter human trials fail to make it to market. Given the remote possibility a safe and effective vaccine ever materializes, the nation may await an imagined vaccine at the expense of finding an effective treatment.
Mortality rate is far lower than quoted
Despite the horridness of COVID-19 induced death (drowning in lung fluid), the accumulated mortality rate as of early July 2020 is still only 131,065 deaths, or 0.00039% deaths in the entire population. Very few of these reported deaths are attribute to COVID-19 coronavirus alone.
Most COVID-19 related deaths occur among high-risk groups who already have life-threatening conditions. Data from the U.S. and other foreign countries estimate ~80+% of COVID-19-related deaths are caused by co-morbid conditions. Subtract 80% of those 131,065 U.S. COVID-19-related deaths and you come up with only 26,213 COVID-19-only deaths
Many COVID-19 cases are believed to be miscoded cases of tuberculosis. (The CDC is not reporting TB-related deaths which produces similar symptoms as COVID-19.) The BCG TB-vaccine reduces the risk for death from COVID-19 by 3-fold and drugs used to treat TB (azithromycin, hydroxychloroquine) are successfully used to treat COVID-19, leading some analysts to conclude many of COVID-19-reported deaths are really tuberculosis. Geographically, COVID-19 hot-spots, such as Wuhan, China; Modena, Italy and New York City, have been battling TB outbreaks in recent times.
Is COVID-19 really TB?
The world is focusing on a viral disease that produces mild to no-symptoms in most cases and a very low mortality rate with no approved treatments or vaccine, overshadowing tuberculosis which affects 2 billion and kills over 1.3 million a year, and has an approved vaccine and successful antibiotic treatment. The infectious disease control industry has gone mad. The currently misdirection is to prioritize a threat that kills in six figures over a threat that kills in seven figures.
The U.S. doesn’t inoculate for TB because it believes there is a low rate of infection. But an estimated 13 million Americans have latent (dormant) tuberculosis (a majority of these are immigrants from foreign lands). It could be many of the reported cases of COVID-19 are actually TB.
Rights of informed consent
The Stanford report that calls for mandated vaccination overlooks certain rights to informed consent that are required by Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations for persons who receive newly licensed vaccines in a clinical study. Since all vaccinated Americans will be enrolled in a surveillance study (stage 4) in order to gain full FDA approval, informed consent will be legally required.
Informed consent consists of the right to reject vaccination, disclosure of alternatives to vaccination (in this instance, natural antibodies), and confidentiality (privacy of the vaccination record).
Furthermore, doctors should individually assess the chances a person has of benefiting from vaccination. And patients have the right to reject hold-harmless clauses that would then make health practitioners legally liable should they proceed to vaccinate an individual who has little chance of benefiting from immunization.
A model INFORMED CONSENT/REFUSAL form has been written and published for the public to present to their doctors when and if a vaccine is licensed and available in the U.S. at covid19consent.com
This is not what the vaccine industry or the Centers for Disease Control, that latter a co-holder of COVID-19 related patents, wants to be known.

Editor, Health Impact News
For many years, Health Impact News often featured the blog posts of Michigan physician Dr. David Brownstein.
When the COVID crisis broke out earlier this year, Dr. Browstein continued blogging about the natural methods he was using to treat patients who had been tested for SARS-CoV-2 or who exhibited the symptoms, and his success rate was 100%.
But in May, the FTC forced Dr. Brownstein to stop blogging about his treatments as they were not approved by the FDA.
Dear CHM Patients-
I want to let you know that we have been ordered by the FTC to stop making any statements about our treatment protocols of Vitamins A, C and D as well as nutritional IV’s, iodine, ozone and nebulization to support the immune system with respect to Coronavirus Diseases 2019 (COVID-19).
“It is unlawful under the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C Sec. 41 et seq. to advertise that a product or service can prevent, treat, or cure human disease unless you possess competent and reliable scientific evidence, including, when appropriate, well-controlled human clinical studies, substantiating that the claims are true at the time they are made. For COVID-19, no such study is currently known to exist for the products or services identified above. Thus, any Coronavirus-related prevention or treatment claims regarding such products or services are not supported by competent and reliable scientific evidence. You must immediately cease making all such claims.”
What this means is that I will not be able to blog, post, tweet, email, etc. for awhile.
I want you to know that CHM is NOT closing. I am still here and so are my colleagues. It is my honor to be your doctor.
To All Our Health! ~DrB

And so we have not heard from him since then, until today.
This month (July 2020) Dr. Brownstein, along with several other doctors, published his results in an independent, open source journal, Science, Public Health Policy and the Law.
The title of the study is A Novel Approach to Treating COVID-19 Using Nutritional and Oxidative Therapies.
Here is the abstract:
Objective: This report is a case series of consecutive patients diagnosed with COVID-19 treated with a nutritional and oxidative medical approach. We describe the treatment program and report the response of the 107 COVID-19 patients.
Study Design: Observational case series consecutive.
Setting: A family practice office in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.
Patients: All patients seen in the office from February through May 2020 diagnosed with COVID-19 were included in the study. COVID-19 was either diagnosed via PCR or antibody testing as well as those not tested diagnosed via symptomology.
Interventions: Oral Vitamins A, C, D, and iodine were given to 107 subjects (99%). Intravenous solutions of hydrogen peroxide and Vitamin C were given to 32 (30%) and 37 (35%) subjects. Thirty-seven (35%) of the cohort was treated with intramuscular ozone. A dilute, nebulized hydrogen peroxide/saline mixture, with Lugol’s iodine, was used by 91 (85%).
Main Outcome Measures: History and physical exam were reviewed for COVID-19 symptoms including cough, fever, shortness of breath, and gastrointestinal complaints. Laboratory reports were examined for SARS-CoV-2 results. Symptomatic improvement after treatment was reported for each patient consisting of first improvement, mostly better, and completely better.
Results: There were a total of 107 patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Thirty four were tested for SARS-CoV-2(32%) and twenty-seven (25%) tested positive. Three were hospitalized (3%) with two of the three hospitalized before instituting treatment and only one requiring hospitalization after beginning treatment. There were no deaths. The most common symptoms in the cohort were fever (81%), shortness of breath (68%), URI which included cough (69%), and gastrointestinal distress symptoms (27%).
For the entire cohort, first improvement was noted in 2.4 days. The cohort reported symptoms mostly better after 4.4 days and completely better 6.9 days after starting the program. For the SARS-CoV-2 test positive patients, fever was present in 25 (93%), shortness of breath in 20 (74%) and upper respiratory symptoms including cough in 21 (78%) while gastrointestinal symptoms were present in 9 (33%). The time to improvement in the SARS-CoV- 2 test positive group was slightly longer than the entire cohort.
Conclusion: At present, there is no published cure, treatment, or preventive for COVID-19 except for a recent report on dexamethasone for seriously ill patients. A novel treatment program combining nutritional and oxidative therapies was shown to successfully treat the signs and symptoms of 100% of 107 patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Each patient was treated with an individualized plan consisting of a combination of oral, IV, IM, and nebulized nutritional and oxidative therapies which resulted in zero deaths and recovery from COVID-19.
It is fairly obvious to anyone not swallowing the propaganda being spun by the corporate media that the entire COVID Plandemic is not to stop the spread of a new disease and find a cure, but to enslave the masses with their toxic products while shutting down the World’s economy and completing the largest transfer of wealth in modern history to the pharmaceutical industry and Bill Gates’ empire.
Get ready for the onslaught of COVID vaccines for a virus which so far has no reliable test to identify, and the symptoms of which are totally treatable via natural methods.

The vast majority of breast cancers start out hormone-dependent, where estradiol, the primary human estrogen, “plays a crucial role in their breast cancer development and progression.” That’s one of the reasons why soy food consumption appears so protective against breast cancer: Soy phytoestrogens, like genistein, act as estrogen-blockers and block the binding of estrogens, such as estradiol, to breast cancer cells, as you can see at 0:24 in my video How to Block Breast Cancer’s Estrogen-Producing Enzymes.
Wait a second. The majority of breast cancers occur after menopause when the ovaries have stopped producing estrogen. What’s the point of eating estrogen-blockers if there’s no estrogen to block? It turns out that breast cancer tumors produce their own estrogen from scratch to fuel their own growth.
As you can see at 1:03 in my video, “estrogens may be formed in breast tumors by two pathways, namely the aromatase pathway and sulfatase pathway.” The breast cancer takes cholesterol and produces its own estrogen using either the aromatase enzyme or two hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzymes.
So, there are two ways to stop breast cancer. One is to use anti-estrogens—that is, estrogen-blockers—like the soy phytoestrogens or the anti-estrogen drug tamoxifen. “However, another way to block estradiol is by using anti-enzymes” to prevent the breast cancer from making all the estrogen in the first place. And, indeed, there are a variety of anti-aromatase drugs in current use. In fact, inhibiting the estrogen production has been shown to be more effective than just trying to block the effects of the estrogen, “suggesting that the inhibition of estrogen synthesis is clinically very important for the treatment of estrogen-dependent breast cancer.”
It turns out that soy phytoestrogens can do both.
Using ovary cells taken from women undergoing in vitro fertilization, soy phytoestrogens were found to reduce the expression of the aromatase enzyme. What about in breast cancer cells, though? This occurred in breast cancer cells, too, and not only was aromatase activity suppressed, but that of the other estrogen-producing enzyme, as well. But this was in a petri dish. Does soy also suppress estrogen production in people?
Well, as you can see at 2:34 in my video, circulating estrogen levels appear significantly lower in Japanese women than Caucasian American women, and Japan does have the highest per-capita soy food consumption, but you can’t know it’s the soy until you put it to the test. Japanese women were randomized to add soy milk to their diet or not for a few months. Estrogen levels successfully dropped about a quarter in the soy milk supplemented group. Interestingly, as you can see at 3:04 in my video, when the researchers tried the same experiment in men, they got similar results: a significant drop in female hormone levels, with no change in testosterone levels. — Continue reading here … What Does Drinking Soy Milk Do to Hormone Levels? | NutritionFacts.org
