According to the Mississippi Free Press (Jackson newspaper), 70% of all calls to the Poison Control Center have been related to Ivermectin ingestion, and one man has been hospitalized (in addition to the ICUs being full already again due to COVID).
I swear to goodness - right-wing/Trumpers/QANON people are willing to ingest or inject anything in their bodies except the actual vaccine!
In my post yesterday, I mentioned that the timeline of right-wing COVID conspiracies went like this ...
"First there was no virus, it's all a hoax, Democrats are lying.
Then it was just a bad flu, and we're still lying, nobody should wear masks, it's "tyranny."
Then - without ever admitting the virus existed, mind you - they started stating as fact that hydroxychloroquine cures (the virus that doesn't exist?), without any clinical data as proof.
Then it was Remdesivir.
Now, it's Ivermectin."
1) Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic - it's what we give our dogs, cats, horses, and cattle for heartworm and other parasites. Though it can be ingested for parasitic infections in people, it's a completely different formulation for humans, and we mostly use it topically on the scalp for head lice.
2) The dosage for humans is much less than we give to our animals, plus the Ivermectin that we give to animals also contains byproducts that have never been studied in humans or reviewed by the FDA.3) Ivermectin has never been reviewed for treating viruses - and though there is one small study underway for treating COVID, it's a different formulation than we give our animals, and even the preliminary results have not been revealed yet of the study.4) Ivermectin is toxic and can kill you in large or chronic doses (like those sold at feed stores for livestock and pets).
Helllloooo - remember the difference between speculation and opinion VS. importance of proof, evidence, and facts?
Remember the importance of truth?
