Texas Internist and Cardiologist Peter McCullough, MD has been fighting to educate citizens about potential ways to prevent the coronavirus, as well as early treatments. While the vaccine is “failing,” Dr. McCullough stresses that there are effective treatments readily available that are being “blocked” by the government.
Dr. McCullough sees patients every week and serves as the editor of two major journals. His work has appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Lancet and others. He is the co-editor of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine, and associate editor of the American Journal of Cardiology and Cardiorenal Medicine.
In an exclusive interview at RAIR Foundation USA, Dr. McCullough explains that he saw a “great void” in the lack of early treatment for the coronavirus. So he did what any thoughtful physician would do – he “put together a team” to address the issue.
Nonexistent Early Treatment
While Dr. McCullough has focused on heart and kidney disease for most his career, the Internist became gravely concerned in early 2020 about what he saw as a complete lack of proper treatment for those who contracted the virus.
“I saw patients getting sick at home – getting no treatment, no care – government agencies completely missing the ball on treating patients early to prevent hospitalization and death,” he told RAIR. “In fact, government agencies [were] not even recognizing that the goal is to prevent hospitalization and death!”
“So I had to step forward, and I did what other people didn’t do,” Dr. McCullough said. “It’s the simplest virus to treat,” the physician said. “In fact, we’ve learned so much about treating this virus, it would probably apply to others!”
‘There has never been a dental clinic outbreak’
Dr. McCullough explained that simply cleaning the nose and mouth could be a preventative. “[T]here has never been a dental clinic outbreak since the beginning,” despite being in people’s mouths all day long, he said. “Dentists use anti-infective dentistry,” he explained. “So if you brush your teeth and swish and spit with yellow Listerine, that works. You can use Povidone-Iodine diluted, hydrogen peroxide diluted as a swish and spit twice a day…” he advised. He also mentions nasal sprays, as well. And there are studies on this, Dr. McCullough said. These preventatives are recommended for other viruses, so why has the government been silent on this solution?
‘Patients should demand antibody infusions’
A special issue in December, 2020 at the “Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine” journal titled “Utilizing Technology in the COVID 19 era,” features an abundance of information. As noted in the abstract of one of the chapters: “Prompt early initiation of sequenced multidrug therapy (SMDT) is a widely and currently available solution to stem the tide of hospitalizations and death.”
The clear government and media suppression of information related to preventative and early treatment of the coronavirus is criminal. How many deaths could have been prevented if proper information was presented to citizens instead of the relentless fear-mongering and droning on about masks?
“In America we would start with an antibody infusion for a high-risk senior,” Dr. McCullough explained. This can be achieved in Emergency Rooms, clinics and nursing homes, and “cuts mortality by 50 percent,” he said.
But Dr. McCullough states that despite the astounding success of this treatment, the public has not been properly informed. “There’s 500 million pre-purchased doses of these antibodies and none of the hospitals are letting the patients know where they are. Governments never mention it on TV, no public service announcements, no media announcements,” he said. “So in fact patients should demand antibody infusions.”
“There are reasonable treatments being blocked to people in need,” Dr. McCullough explained. Dr. McCullough lays out some of these treatments in the video. “Demand it!,” he said. If doctors do not prescribe these treatments, “that’s malpractice,” he said.
‘Vaccines are Failing’
“The vaccines now are all completely failing,” Dr. McCullough said. He notes that the “Delta variant,” is “completely resistant to the vaccine.” “To our knowledge, the vaccines are having no effect – this is very important.”
The physician is critical of the vaccine, pointing out many problems associated with it such as “blood clots, which are a big problem.” There is an “array of problems – stroke, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, heart attack – there are blood clots in the brain…” In fact, “over a hundred thousand Americans have either died or been hospitalized after the vaccine – no explanation,” he said.
“It doesn’t work enough and it certainly is not safe enough to take,” he said.
The Delta variant is now responsible for 83 percent of U.S. cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and 100% according to the local Texas health departments. Yet despite the apparent ineffectiveness of the vaccine in preventing the Delta variant, the CDC continues to push the vaccine, ignoring the treatments and preventatives discussed.
“The vaccine doesn’t stop the illness and it doesn’t reduce mortality,” Dr. McCullough said. In fact, he states later in the interview, “[I]t should all be about safety! And to this day, we have not had a single safety report to the public. Nothing. No press briefing. No explanation of what’s going on.”
One of the common statements made in defense of the injection is that even though vaccinated people still get infected (referred to as “breakthrough cases”), their symptoms are not as severe. According to the CDC, “fully vaccinated people are much less likely to be hospitalized or die than people with similar risk factors who are not vaccinated.”
On this point, Dr. McCullough says “Is there some benefit? I don’t know….The only thing I know is that they look to me the same in terms of disease severity and they need early treatment.” Regardless of whether an individual is vaccinated or not, he or she must get early treatment.
An important point made during the discussion is that those who already had the coronavirus have “natural immunity”. This was a part of Dr. McCullough’s powerful testimony in April, as reported at RAIR.
Dr. Peter McCullough could not be silent when he saw what he referred to as a “great void” in the national conversation about early treatment and prevention of the coronavirus from the beginning. When he saw that the vaccine was not effective, but noted that natural immunity was effective, again, he rose to address the issue.
On the same day Baylor University Medical Center filed the lawsuit against Dr. Peter McCullough, they announced that they were requiring all employees to be vaccinated. Dr. Peter McCullough believes that the lawsuit is designed to shut down his voice.
Dr. McCullough was not expecting his voice to become controversial – after all, he was simply stating the truth. But unfortunately, science based in honesty and good faith has become a casualty during this “incredibly mad episode in human history,” as described by Dr. Roger Hodkinson.
The past year and a half has surely been a wake up call for those who once had faith in the medical infrastructure in America and elsewhere. It has been devastating to see that brilliant, highly regarded physicians such as Dr. Peter McCullough have dealt with political obstacles in attempting to help citizens overcome the coronavirus.
