Practices what he preaches

Thanks Mike for your hard work! You have proven that you are far more reliable in understanding of medical literature than many medical doctors that I’ve come across. Also, I’m inspired by how congruent your personal life is with the health information you share. Lastly, thank you for slowing down your speech in the last podcast. You are obviously an intelligent and passionate person. Us listeners just need a little more time to digest the complexity of the literature you share. Cheers!

Ivermectin

So important thank you for sharing this information. They can not deny it the more and more it is put out there.
