I’m sick of seeing all the false information regarding Ivermectin on the internet.

Before we begin, let me state unequivocally that I am a journalist, not a medical professional. I’m not a doctor, so please don’t ask me for medical advice.

I’m only presenting you with the findings of my research, which the MSM is attempting to conceal….

I also know how to conduct research.

So, let’s get started:


Have you seen this all over the internet?

It was shared on the FDA’s Twitter account.

Isn’t this enough to convince you that Ivermectin isn’t approved for human use?

That’s the conclusion I’d draw from all of this.

Based on this piece of propaganda, Ivermectin is only approved for horses and not for humans.

The only issue is that there’s a problem with it.

This isn’t the case.

That’s not even close.

Here’s what’s really going on:

That, my friends, is a quote from PolitiFact’s very own Ivermectin fact-checking page.

However, what they do with their “Face Check” is quite diabolical….

Watch how PolitiFact tries to convince you that the TRUE statement is still false:

This post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)

It is true that ivermectin was approved by the Food and Drug Administration that year — but not to treat the coronavirus. The drug was approved for strongyloidiasis, a disease caused by a roundworm, and onchocerciasis, or river blindness, which is caused by a parasitic worm.

The drug was approved for humans under the brand name Stromectol, National Geographic reported, and since then it’s been recognized as a safe treatment for several tropical diseases caused by parasites. In 2015, two scientists even won a Nobel Prize for their discovery of ivermectin and its use to treat diseases caused by parasites.

But unlike, say, river blindness, COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus, not by parasites. And as PolitiFact recently reported in a story exploring ivermectin, there’s no conclusive evidence that ivermectin is effective against COVID-19.

The dishonesty and lies are so nasty that it gets me enraged.

I couldn’t come up with all the twists and turns these folks use to transform the TRUTH into a falsehood if you gave me a year.

It’s revolting.

But this is only the beginning.

Then there are the fear tactics and the blatantly false headlines.

Like this WIVB Channel 4 News article:

After a recent resurgence in several states, health officials are warning residents to be aware of a dangerous of an unauthorized “treatment” for COVID-19 — often being taken with dangerous consequences.

It’s called ivermectin and it’s used to treat and prevent parasites in animals, the Food and Drug Administration explains. The tablets are not FDA approved for treatment of COVID-19 in humans and isn’t even an anti-viral drug — meaning it has no impact on the coronavirus. And because the large-concentration tablets are intended for large animals, these can be treacherous for humans.

In addition to not being authorized for treatment, there’s no evidence ivermectin treats COVID-19.

“There’s a lot of misinformation around, and you may have heard that it’s okay to take large doses of ivermectin. That is wrong.”

The FDA and several state officials say they’ve seen an uptick in calamitous use of the drugs, particularly tablets used to treat parasitic worms in horses. While ivermectin is approved for humans to treat certain skin conditions (rosacea) and certain external parasites like head lice, the FDA warns this ivermectin is different than the one used in animals.

On Friday, the Mississippi Department of Health was forced to send out a warning to residents about the dangers of the drug after several poisonings.

The Mississippi Poison Control Center said at least 70% of recent ivermectin-related calls are tied to people taking livestock or animal formulations they bought a livestock supply stores or through online markets.

Eighty-five percent of callers had mild symptoms — these include rash, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain — but one person needed evaluation because of how much they’d taken.

More severe dangers of ivermectin ingestion include neurologic disorders, seizures, coma and death.

Use of ivermectin should only be taken if prescribed by a doctor for an FDA-approved use. Regardless of the usage and prescription, the FDA warns ivermectin overdose is still possible. Possible interaction with other medications is also a possibility.

I underlined the important bits.

Doesn’t a 70% increase in Ivermectin Poison Center calls seem like a lot?

According to NPR, there has been a 245 percent increase! Oh, my goodness!

Sounds horrible until you learn that the 245 percent increase is from 133 to 459 calls, according to NPR….


From July to August, the National Poison Data System (NPDS), which collects data from the nation’s 55 poison control centers, reported exposure instances increased by 245 percent, from 133 to 459.

Yes, 459 calls to poison control centers were made out of a population of 333 million people.

0.00000137 percent of the population, in other words.

Those are just phone calls.

According to the bolded section of the Channel 4 article, 85% of those who call are
