Mainstream cabal science wants us to believe, everything in #Nature is due to #gravity, #darkmatter and #darkenergy

Yet, where ever we look, Nature is #Electromagnetic.
#Electromagnetic #fields can be
#dark or
#light/#illumination
the fields are not always visible! #DarkNoMore
#Electric #discharge of our atmosphere by #lightning, which #fractally #branches, just like #coastlines, our #lung tissue, a #tree or a #lichtenberg #figure on a persons skin after hit by lightning.

Electric #Nature is so in our face, yet we keep searching misterious dark energy
When #Nature weather #climaxes, it releases #bursts of #electricity, lightning, brighting up the skys.
At the moment life climaxes, the moment when sperm fuses with egg, a small burst of #light can be measured.
Our hot sun is plasma (electrified matter), having enormous EM-fields

1/4 Saw this at Bandstand today. As a chest physician, this made me very happy! Pigeons are responsible for an interstitial lung disease (ILD) called hypersensitivity pneumonitis or extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Image
2/4 Most chest physicians and radiologists in the city will tell you how the number of patients with the disease has consistently increased over the years, paralleling the increase in the pigeon population of the city.
3/4 Thank you, whoever was responsible for this, and I hope this awareness increases! #interstitiallungdisease #lunghealth #lung #pigeon #mumbai #bandstand #ild @RajaniSurendarB @bandrabuzz @RupsaChak @AlexandraUlmer

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.

Starting! @AngelaHaczku is joining us for @ucdavisbiology's #CovidTownHall! Dr. Haczku is a physician & co-author on the paper describing the 1st US community transmission of COVID-19 at @UCDavisHealth (Paper: doi.org/10.1093/cid/ci…). Tune in live: facebook.com/watch/live/?v=…
@AngelaHaczku, M.D., Ph.D., is a Professor of #Medicine, Director of the UC Davis #Lung Center, and is Associate Dean of Translational Research for @UCDavisMed. She is internationally recognized expert in pulmonary immunology. #CovidTownHall #Covid19

THREAD from the new #bradykinin research (pre-print) from 🇳🇱:

"We propose that the severity of the disease and many deaths are due to a local vascular problem due to activation of B1 receptors on #endothelial cells in the lungs."

#COVID19 #kinins

preprints.org/manuscript/202…
➡️"the B1 receptor on endothelial cells is upregulated by proinflammatory #cytokines

➡️ Without #ACE2 acting as a guardian to inactivate the ligands of B1, the lung environment is prone for local vascular leakage leading to #angioedema"

...

#bradykinin #COVID19
➡️"... and might explain the typical #CTscans and the feeling of people that they drown.

➡️In some pt., this is followed by a clinical worsening of disease around day 9 due to the formation antibodies directed against the spike (S)-antigen of #SARSCoV2 that binds to #ACE2"

Let's journey back on the #FireTheSG movement, shall we?

December 2018, @Surgeon_General @JeromeAdamsMD convinced the public #media, inflating a false "epidemic" w/30-day use, not daily.

Lie #1: vapinglinks.blog/2019/01/06/epi…

Based on feelings, Google alerts, potential & inaccuracy.
No refuting vaping products help smokers quit, 👆above, continues below...

With #data he wanted to present, sentiment and "feelings" continued.

Lie #2: rodutobaccotruth.blogspot.com/2019/11/high-s…

Indifferent, bans & taxes ⏫increasing countrywide, & no care of helping smokers quit.

#FireTheSG
False statements, accusations continued. When corrected, he didn't like that and had to swallow his narrative.

In full, with @2Vaping, @TheLegionCmdr, @Surgeon_General & others:

“If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth“

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

Hey #tipsfornewdocs #medtwitter folks! I wanted to review side effects of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for a non-#oncology audience. Immune-related adverse events (irAEs) present across all medicine specialties so we are all in this together. 1/x
The most common ICIs are against PD-1 (e.g. nivolumab, pembrolizumab) and PD-L1 (e.g. atezolizumab, durvalumab). I use a blanket term “PD-1” throughout. Anti-CTLA-4 (ipilimumab) is a distant second; often in combo or directly after PD-1 in #melanoma #lung #kidney cancers. 2/x
They have led to pharma riches and Nobel Prizes and lots of TV commercials because they work really well for some patients. People with advanced #melanoma, #lcsm etc who used to live ~1 year now can hope to live for several years or more. 3/x
