The Gap Between What The Public Thinks And What Scientists Know

harvey the nerd Re:More ambiguous cruft (414 comments)

I am an engineer with chemical and biological background. I've seen more than I want to in commercialized conclusions by PhD scientists that were really just hired guns, corporate and academic. In some cases they got unhired because I proved things otherwise and showed long stretches of repeated, highly biased results.

I think paycheck corruption in science today is even worse, like with the CAGW promoters.

Nobel Laureate and Laser Inventor Charles Townes Passes

harvey the nerd Gordon Gould, 1st laser inventor? (73 comments)

We should not forget Gordon Gould's statements about being Townes' grad student who made the major critical breakthroughs for the laser. Gould had a three decade patent war to win his patent claims to invention of the laser and many developments. It's an interesting story for an overage commie grad student...

In the end, Japanese manufacturers paid over a billion $ royalties on Gould's patents.

The Cashless Society? It's Already Coming

harvey the nerd cashless is suicidal (375 comments)

My lost $20 bills never sent me a charge for $24,000 from halfway around the world from a country I've never been to. If some psycho exGF, worker, political opponent manages to frame you or turn everything off, 2-3 weeks fast pedaling becomes harder, while you starve. In a police state, all kinds of bad things formerly just in the movies, mean YOU.

Wrong. The high dose vitamin C is to kill the virus and stop the hemorrhagic episodes, poor Future Darwin Awardees.

NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola

harvey the nerd Responses: for New York etc (372 comments)

Before returning to US, medical personnel should have 1-2 days isolated rest and repeat PCR screening. Restricted social activities and monitoring for 21 days after last African contact.

1. The FDA is hindering rapid PCR test kits. Issue temporary permits, buy 10-20 provisional PCR kits for 5 airports and upgrade every 1-2 quarters. F--- the FDA.
2. Stage and slow the return of West African visitors to social exposures.
3. Flush anybody questionable with 2-5 days of IV vitamin C 80,000 mg tid, 50,000 iu vitamin D3 per day, selenium and zinc. These kill viruses.
4. Allow protection for unknowns, like some earlier contagious exposure before gross symptoms
5. Do better allowance in design for superspreader incidents.

Trans-Pacific Partnership May Endanger World Health, Newly Leaked Chapter Shows

harvey the nerd Re:freedoms f----d (132 comments)

My wife takes a pill in asia that is superior to anything in the US, $4 per day. This chemo pill is illegal in the US - its too nice and not 100% toxics (only ~30%). Literally there's a law about it, and I've been yelled at by the FDA about it. The closest, INFERIOR pill in the US has been running $9000 per month has more side effects and shorter life. If the US changes the "anti-nice" rule and legalizes this old generic drug, should US taxpayers owe PFE etc a billion $ per year? It is that simple.

Positive Ebola Test In Second Texas Health Worker

harvey the nerd C 'ing the truth (463 comments)

IV treatment IV vitamin C with sodium ascorbate is a powerful, less known antiviral treatment, stonewalled out of conventional medicine for ca 75 years http://seanet.com/~alexs/ascor... .... See also
Injectable C http://injectablevitaminc.com/...
Cathcart http://orthomolecular.org/libr...
and Klenner. http://www.doctoryourself.com/...
or read Tom Levy's book, Curing the Incurable:Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins

The more severe the virus, higher and more frequent doses used. As support for nasty viral illnesses overseas that have no vaccine, we also take zinc, 50,000 iu of vitamin D3 for 1-2 weeks, lysine and 200-400 mcg selenium. With Ebola, the real question will be when the last chance for a given level of IV vitamin C treatment (gram C/kg wt) 2-3-4 times per day will work, and when it will be too late - too little.

I've already been in a 3rd world situation where people look like over made actors in a sci fi movie with lots and lots of big pustules...and IV vitamin C worked well from the first infusion crusting over in ~8 hours vs 8 more days, over it in several days, so don't yak at me about iffy imagination stuff. However, I believe ignorance and cupidity are mankind's norm.
