Why is the hidden epidemic of chronic kidney disease being ignored? | NaturalHealth365 – June 23, 2020

(NaturalHealth365)  Chronic kidney disease (CKD), a serious condition in which damaged kidneys can’t properly filter toxins from the blood, is the ninth leading cause of death worldwide. Over a third of diabetics are estimated to have chronic kidney disease – and type 2 diabetes is now the leading cause of kidney failure in the United States.

new observational study identifies the shocking failure of many primary care physicians to diagnose chronic kidney disease in their diabetic patients.  But, the “silver lining” is that the research is triggering a new awareness of the need for early detection of kidney disease in diabetic patients – along with the need for more kidney-supportive therapies. →

99% of Those Who’ve Died From COVID 19 Had Other Illness, Italy Says — Collective Evolution – March 22, 2020

(Collective-Evolution)  The new coronavirus is taking the world by storm, but there is some good news that’s come out lately.

A very brief update. Read this carefully. Many people who were diagnosed as “coronavirus cases” in Italy, and then died, were almost certainly put on antiviral drugs. As you’ll see, below, a significant percentage of these people had prior heart conditions or high blood pressure. But at least one of the antiviral drugs, called ribavirin, carries this VERY RELEVANT warning, from cardiosmart.org: “Ribavirin may decrease the number of red blood cells in your body. This is called anemia and it can be life-threatening in people who have heart disease or circulation problems.” High blood pressure is a circulatory problem. Understand? Get it? LIFE-THREATENING. So how many coronavirus patients have been killed by the administering of ribavirin?

And with THAT, let’s jump in…because there’s more. Much more. →
