In an announcement YouTube’s CEO said it intends to remove any videos from its platform that don’t agree with the World Health Organization’s advice on the CCP (Chinese communist Party) Virus pandemic that is sweeping the world.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki spoke with CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter on Sunday. “Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations would be a violation of our policy. And so remove is another really important part of our policy,” she declared.
“We have served billions of impressions across our network that come from all the different public health organizations, and made sure that people understand what are the resources,” she said.
“Of course, anything that is medically unsubstantiated,” she said. “So people saying, like, take vitamin C, you know, take turmeric, like, those are—will cure you. Those are the examples of things that would be a violation of our policy.”
According to Dr. Leo Galland M.D., Wojcicki is incorrect in her statement that vitamin C and turmeric are not beneficial against the virus, as both have shown “anti-corona virus effects in laboratory studies, including results in animals. Some of these have a long history of human use for treating infections.”
Galland explained, “COVID-19 enters human cells by attaching to a protein on the cell surface called ACE-2. … When coronavirus binds to ACE-2, the protein loses its enzyme activity. In the words of one scientist, COVID-19 produces ‘ACE-2 exhaustion,’” he wrote in a handbook that’s been published in many news outlets.
“ACE-2 exhaustion” can be combated to some degree by turmeric, said Galland. “Regular aerobic exercise and a plant-based whole foods diet are associated with improved ACE-2 function. Natural substances shown to enhance ACE-2 function include curcumin (a set of flavonoids found in the spice turmeric),” he explained, reported BPR.
The question is if this report by Galland was to be shared on YouTube, would they then remove it?
Vitamin C, another contentious issue according to Wojcicki for treating the CCP Virus, is actually being used for patients in hospitals in the United States and China, and probably in many other countries.
“Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C,” the New York Post reported late last month. “Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then readministered three or four times a day,” he said.
In a statement to the Post, Weber added, “The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C. It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug.”
If shared to YouTube, would his testimony also be removed? Reports from China also showed where vitamin C was used intravenously for infected patients it also met with success.
Does the policy of YouTube mean this type of vital information is to be kept from the public?
Recently, a number of controlled trials indicated that vitamin C can shorten the length of stay in the ICU of patients suffering from various serious conditions.
The uses of vitamin C and other nonconventional treatments for illness are many and have been well documented. Only allowing approved treatments by the WHO for helping combat the CCP Virus on YouTube is a gross miscarriage of justice. Note that for the first time in the 72-year history of the WHO, the director-general is not a medical doctor.
Lawrence Gostin, professor of global health law at Georgetown University Law School, told Reuters Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is, “very political, there is no question. And sometimes he is too political.”
Remember the false information that the WHO pedaled about the spread of the CCP Virus, it was a study from the CCP claiming that humans couldn’t spread the coronavirus to each other.
The WHO however, has no restrictions on YouTube.
