I like this pod cast if one of the only pod casts that is not to scary for kids I’m 11 I like this pod cast I do advise this!😀😇😊
Fixing Vaccines hesitancy
I recently went to a new Doctor, this Doctor looked right at me and said ;”no one has died from the vaccine”
You and I know that this CANNOT be true.
This leads me and others to have to guess (without any medical training) what is true.
Personally I already take 4 prescription drugs, that have known side effects (including death), but I TAKE ThESE drugs anyway.
However, when this Doctor and others refuse to tell me the truth, I’d be an idiot to trust anything else he recommends.
With honesty (or even a believable lie) I and others could be convinced in 10 minutes to take the shot.
These systemic mistruths have set the medical profession back 75 years,
I really enjoy this podcast . Sometimes I don’t have the time for an hour and a half podcast so I like the info covered in a good amount of time. I also like that it’s a good balance of non political science/pandemic information. I really appreciate how respectful the Dr is when interviewing guests, That was one of the first things I noticed. Dr.Marc Siegel has a good reputation with being more ‘conservative’ and I find my friends who have been victims of misinformation will be more open to hearing good factual info from him- so this podcast is great for sharing information as well.
