How to Discover Trustworthy Resources For Health Info
To continue my series about the media and your health I want to offer a brief recap of what I discussed.
Essentially, it goes like this.
The main media outlets (both in print and on TV/Internet) are not your friend as it pertains to health. You could argue they’re not your friend regarding other issues too, but I won’t digress into a discussion about that as it’s not my area of expertise.
The reason they’re not to be trusted is the organizations who keep these businesses alive are for-profit corporations, and they specifically make drugs that are meant to keep you safe from diseases that could in many cases be corrected simply through lifestyle changes.
Now, I’m not saying pharmaceuticals are purposeless.
I am saying that when the media push out messages about what makes you sick and what keeps you well, and most of the messaging causes people to remain sick and for billion-dollar companies to profit all the more…
That something is wrong.
And that’s why you need to know where to turn to take control of your health.
Here’s How to Find Who You Can Trust
Some of what I tell you is going to be controversial. Another thing I’m going to say to you is don’t trust me only.
What I mean by that is you must continue to question the experts, even if they’re people you think you can trust and respect.
The fact is half the reason our country is in suffering (as it relates to human health) is people blindly trust experts without vetting what they say.
Now, it’s hard to do the vetting yourself, but you can always see what other experts in the subject matter are saying as it relates to the discussion (more on that later).
So, here’s what I recommend:
1 – See Who’s Being Canceled:
To use one of the new buzzwords in this day and age, if you can see who’s being canceled in the medical field you can bet that what they say is worth listening to.
It doesn’t mean they’re necessarily speaking the truth, but if the media is mounting an attack on these individuals (and these individuals are experts in their field), you can bet that what they’re saying is making the media nervous.
If it didn’t then they (the media) would put them on their shows and want to listen to what they have to say.
But when an expert is blasted and called names in ad-hominem attacks, they’re likely striking at an area that is sensitive to the powers that be and the vested interest at hand.
As an example back in December of 2021, Dr. Robert Malone, a world-renowned immunologist, and the creator and patent holder for several inventions in the realm of mRNA vaccines was routinely attacked by the media for the warnings he was giving about the state of American health.
Even though he had invented the technology for the program that was being forced on the American people, the media called him all kinds of names and said he should never be trusted.
Anyone with critical thinking can see what a problem this is.
The same thing has happened with other prominent scientists and physicians.
For instance, people like Dr. Mercola have been banned from Facebook and other social media platforms for espousing dangerous views, even though what they’re saying is backed up by all kinds of scientific data.
The cancel maneuver is their attempt to silence a truth they don’t want you to hear.
If this sounds cloak and dagger, or improbable, just look at what happened over these past 3 years and ask yourself who’s willing, to tell the truth, and who’s getting canceled.
Again, I don’t want you to think that just because someone is canceled that’s a surefire sign they’re right about anything. But if a doctor or scientist is trying to get a message out and they’re being suppressed by the media, that should be a sign to tell you to pay attention.
2 – Look to Alternative News and Media Sources:
This is a relatively obvious suggestion, but many people don’t know what this means.
On your journey to get the truth, it’s best to use the Internet and independent news sources to get your info.
These would include things like:
- Email lists
- Paid Websites (Things like Patreon and Substack)
- Social Media
- YouTube Channels
- Independent Websites
Here’s an example of how this could work.
You could subscribe to a newspaper like the Epoch Times, which takes very little advertising dollars from the medical/pharmaceutical industry to get a different perspective on health news.
You could listen to podcasts from people like Dr. Eric Weinstein (who was one of the first to popularize the lab leak hypothesis), Joe Rogan, Dr. Peter McCullough, and more.
Or you could subscribe to doctors’ and researchers’ personally-owned email lists (like mine).
Now you’re probably looking for a list from me, and I won’t give you one for 2 reasons.
The first is to give you a list would be quite difficult as there is a myriad of people.
And the second is the best way to figure out who to listen to is to turn off the mainstream media and then investigate on your own.
Plenty of times you will discover on this journey that other people are referenced or other resources are provided and that will expand the universe of people you can turn to for information.
It’s that simple.
The more stones you overturn, the more you will begin to get new and reliable sources of information.
It’s Your Job to Get Informed
The reason so many people are deceived about their health is that they choose to be spoonfed by the media as opposed to doing their own research.
You should always take ownership of what you believe and cross-reference or vet it yourself.
And, to prevent being hoodwinked, you should be willing to have conversations with others who would challenge your beliefs.
I hope this helps.
