Well, the campaign against hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) continues to intensify.
Yesterday, Chris poked an embarrassing number of holes in the main study being cited by the recent headlines that HCQ has “no effect”.
Today, he looks at the growing media reports that HCQ is downright dangerous. Warnings of fatal cardiovascular risk and other side effects that are “inexcusable” to ignore.
It sure seems like we’re being told we’d be crazy to put HCQ in our bodies if it does nothing against covid-19 but can harm us with bad, potentially fatal, side effects.
But is that true?
Again, Chris plows through the research and makes quick work in revealing that chloroquine (and HCQ, its derivative) is one of the most prescribed drugs in history. It has been for over 70 years and the incident rate of concerning reactions has been practically negligible according to the medical community.
From the American College of Cardiology: “Several hundred million courses of chloroquine have been used worldwide making it one of the most widely used drugs in history, without reports of arrhythmic death under Word Health Organization surveillance.”
Why is chloroquine/HCQ suddenly being so demonized, apparently unjustly? We don’t know. But do we know that, whether it’s from bad science or something more nefarious (i.e. Big Pharma protecting its interests), if HCQ is indeed proven to make a positive difference in reducing the severity/fatality of covid-19, lives have been unnecessarily lost by the current campaign to discredit it.
