    Endotoxin (LPS) may be the cause of fatal lung damage in COVID-19

    Yet another study, which demonstrates that there is virtually no disease (acute of chronic, infections or not) where the infamous LPS does not play a causative role. As it turns out, the often fatal inflammatory reaction (cytokine storm) that usually kills patients with COVID-19 in ICU, is...

    One of the most paradigm-challenging studies I have seen this year and, unsurprisingly, mainstream media is pulling all sorts of tricks to avoid naming the culprit directly. Even the press release and the study abstract are worded in a convoluted way, talking about a "serotonin dysfunction"...

    Significant drop in mortality when doctors are away from work

    Ray has been saying that a significant number (perhaps majority) of deaths are iatrogenic - i.e. caused by the medical procedures and/or staff. These studies seem to confirm his view: http://arstechnica.com/science/2014/12/ ... o-survive/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18849101
