Caroline Gold ,

Stellar podcasts, highly recommend Dr. Dawn

I respect Dr. Dawn immensely. As a patient of hers I can attest to her infinite knowledge, always backed by reputable research. She is great at explaining and diagnosing, and focuses on treatments that are non-invasive. Thank you, Dr. Dawn.

Don’t look at any thing else??

I wonder if you think you have a stupid audience? I have no opinion about vaccines but hearing you say to not look at Mr. Kennedy’s website “because that is what he wants you to do” makes me question you!!
Why can’t I look at two contradictory websites??? He advises his audience to look at all arguments, he links to them.
You say don’t look- if you speak the truth then let wouldn’t you say please look??
