Ivermectin: Crony Capitalist Case Study

August 12, 2021

Ivermectin has shown tremendous promise in the fight against COVID-19, but governments around the world attack and discredit those who promote its use. Action Alert!

“Why is the FDA attacking a safe, effective drug?” asks a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. Despite dozens of studies demonstrating the promise of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19, the government continues to attack its use in the pandemic. One likely reason is that widespread use of ivermectin as prophylaxis against COVID undermines vaccine uptake as well as the legal basis for emergency use authorization (EUA) for the vaccines.

We reviewed some of the substantial evidence base for ivermectin and COVID-19 in previous coverage. There are 60 studies on ivermectin and COVID; 39 have been peer-reviewed. As our friends at ANH International point out, no other known substance can deliver the 88% improvement for prophylaxis, 75% improvement for early treatment, and 43% for late treatment that ivermectin has demonstrated.

Read the FDA’s statement, though, and you’d find scary words like “seizures, coma, and death,” from ivermectin—despite more than 3 billion doses of ivermectin administered safely over 40 years.

What explains this disconnect? For one, ivermectin is off-patent, meaning Big Pharma can’t make billions from it, so the FDA attacks it to clear the market for more expensive alternatives. We believe the FDA did something similar in attacking brain health supplements like vinpocetine and picamilon, clearing the way for new blockbuster Alzheimer’s drugs that mostly flopped, or more recently have created a firestorm of controversy for gaining approval despite being ineffective.

The existence of a viable alternative to treat COVID-19 also throws a wrench in the works of the government’s COVID vaccine roll-out. Recall that all of the current COVID vaccines operate under EUAs, which are granted on the condition that no other viable alternatives exist. If ivermectin is recognized as a viable alternative, the criteria for granting an EUA for a COVID vaccine no longer exist, and the government’s vaccination campaign falls apart.

Government agencies can’t seem to agree on ivermectin. After meeting with members of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance who shared the scientific rationale for using ivermectin against COVID-19, the National Institutes of Health’s Treatment Guidelines Panel upgraded their designation for the drug from “against” to “neither for or against,” which is the same recommendation given to monoclonal antibodies and convalescent plasma, both widely used across the nation.

All of this underlines how broken the healthcare system in this country is. The government pushes expensive, often dangerous medicines for COVID (remember remdesivir, a drug that was barely better than placebo at reducing COVID mortality?) and other illnesses while ignoring low-cost alternatives that either cannot be strongly patented or are off-patent. Big Pharma and their government cronies want mandatory vaccines, not ivermectin, as the answer to COVID because vaccines will make the most money. Why spend the exorbitant sums on clinical trials for ivermectin and COVID when the patent protection wouldn’t be as strong, the market exclusivity period is shorter than for new drugs, and the potential pool of patients is substantially smaller than for vaccines, since everyone, sick or not, gets the vaccine while only those who are sick would receive a drug for COVID?

Until this situation is fixed, we will continue to pay exorbitant prices for worse health outcomes.

Action Alert! Send a message to Congress, alerting them to the benefits of ivermectin and the FDA’s inexcusable and misleading warning about this drug. Please send your message immediately.

    Great article what can we do to stops these crimes against humanity
    Big Pharma is Satan

  2. Claudio says:

    The conflict of interest between the FDA & the greedy/dishonest pharmaceutical companies must stop immediately.

    How can you get ivermectin

    • david cox says:

      How can I get ivermectin for my family? (3 of us are unvaccinated)

    • Agnes Chrismer says:

      I get Ivermectin from my vet to to prevent heart-worm disease in my dog. I am all for natural health in myself and my pets, but it seems a little weird to me that this would be used for covid. Vets also use this for cows etc. You can find it in some feed stores. I feel like the FDA needs to back off any natural treatment, let us make our own decisions.

    • Genet Bosque says:

      Dear Bonita — Please, go to the website for the FLCCC alliance, a group of highly reputable international doctors who are the prime movers & shakers in the effort to get Ivermectin, or IVM, approved. It is absolutely comprehensive, includes their I-Mask protocol for COVID prevention, as well as treatment protocol, and a HOW TO GET IVERMECTIN tab and list of IVM Rx providers.

      Take good care,

      Genet at [email protected]

    • Ed Swaim says:

      It can be purchased online or at your local farm supply store, no Rx required. Excellent for Covid as well as killing many other parasitic infections, perhaps ones you get from your family pet.

    • Vivian says:

      Please.How do we get Ivermectin if our doctor is opposed and how long and in what dosage do we take it!

      Thank you,

      Vivian

    • Gailbee says:

      You need a doctor’s prescription. Don’t use the one they sell at the feed stores for livestock worming. Bad side effects.

  4. M Suzanne Edmonson says:

    Please consider the value of ivermectin in treating and preventing COVID-19.

  5. Natalie Pushkin says:

    What dosage of ivermectin would need to be taken for prophylactic purposes, and how often?

    • Genet Bosque says:

      Natalie, the FLCCC website has this information, constantly updated. It’s the best—and primary—resource for Ivermectin information/Covid prevention & treatment/review of trials.

      Best wishes ~~~ and health,

      Genet

      Hi Natalie,
      I believe my incorrect response to your question may have gotten away before I could correct it. To answer your question re correct dose of ivermectin: my functional MD doctor prescribed one 12 mg capsule daily to prevent Covid, and so far I haven’t had it. There have been no side effects of the 2-3 months I’ve been taking it. I am also wearing a mask and being careful to avoid crowds. Very few visitors to my flat.
      I also took the capsules a few years ago for a gut infestation. No side effects then either. Not sure it got rid of the gut infestation, but no clear indication it didn’t either.
      Good luck!
      Stephanie

      Remember this fights parasites also. You might be surprised what happens at the detox you get.

  6. Dan Burch says:

    Please review the studies, many of which are peer reviewed, of Ivermectin use for Covid-19. This a proven drug that has over 40 years of proven use.

  7. Ned B. says:

    The personal message I added to your missive:

    Personal Note from Ned,

    What kind of politician/official would let people suffer and die in misery, destroy families and businesses by suppressing the administration of a safe, efficacious, readily available medicine just to protect Big Pharma profit margins?

    A bought and paid for traitor to humanity!

  8. Denise Turgeon says:

    Stop censorship of valuable information and effective proven treatments. People have a right to avail themselves of all information in order to decide what is best for themselves & loved ones. Government over-reach has no place in our Constitution, Health or Life.

    Can you tell me the names of the trials for Ivermectin and Covid-19 and how this paste was administered ?

    When do you elected officials start to do what’s best for everyday people? Anyone who hasn’t read the propaganda know this works and so does hydroxychloroquine. Congress approval is 10% , there is reason for that. Someone needs to start giving a sh!& and doing what’s right. There must be some good politicians in there somewhere?

  13. James C. Moseley says:

    Ivermectin is a safe, low-cost, effective medication. It has no side effects. Please insure that it’s use is not limited or for it to be removed from use. We must have something such as this that is easily acquired and easily used!

  14. John Heff says:

    The FDA has a conflict of interest with the Pharma Industry.

    These two cohorts are working against the best interests of the American people.

  15. Pamela Stanley says:

    I have taken Ivermectin for Covid and I highly believe in its effectiveness. I know of farmers who have taken it before it was ever mentioned and they had full recoveries when millions were dying. Please do not take this away from the masses It will save lives.

    • Kelly says:

      Good morning Pamela!
      Can you tell me more about your dosage? I’d like to get some just in case, while I’m traveling (while I still can).

  16. Nancy kisich says:

    Dears Sirs/Madams,

    I am writing you about Ivermectin. It is unfathomable to me that there is no major study in the works for Ivermectin after so much consistent good results. I heard Dr Fauci for the first time postering for early treatment antivirals like Monoclonal therapies. I don’t believe our current vaccines are protecting us from long haul syndrome, transmission or illness. I hope to see a BIG change soon.

    Yours Truly,
    Nancy Kisich

    My notes.. 1. A double-blind Israeli study has concluded that Ivermectin, an inexpensive anti-parasitic widely used since 1981, reduces both the duration and infectiousness of Covid-19, according to the Jerusalem Post 2. Ivermectin study in Argentina showed 100% protection. 3. The Indian Bar Association (IBA), say it has served a second legal notice to WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan for allegedly “running a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin”, after WHO failed to recommend use of the anti-parasitic drug as a COVID-19 treatment/prevention. 4. In Mexico.. in the state of Chiapas they started using Ivermectin last year, and had the lowest corona cases and deaths in Mexico. no prescription, for about $2. 5. Dr. Dan Stock MD – Mount Vernon, Indiana School Board Meeting.. Iveremctin on his patients. 6. Confusion reigns in Indonesia with it’si runaway COVID, where Ivermectin was mentioned as OK to use on an official listing.. but removed after the WHO protested saying.. that must be under med. supervision, may have dangerous side effects, unproven etc..7. Here in Siam our Med. Auth. has made Ivermectin UNAVAILABLE!

  18. Sandra Lee Smith says:

    They did this with HCQ as well. No suprise! There’s no money in it, & it won’t serve the ultimate purpose of depopulation!

  19. ELIZABETH A LAYTON says:

    honestly? Show me the rational behind ivermectin actually working? It is a paraticide, a wormer.
    How does it work with a mRNA virus? How? I have puzzled this since the information first came out.

    • Genet Bosque says:

      Elizabeth=== PLEASE: go to the FLCCC website! It will answer your questions. IVERMECTIN also works as an anti-viral. Everything is explained, and trial proofs are exhibited, on that website.

      Blessings,

      Genet

  20. Linda says:

    If it ts drug has been proven effective in the fight against COVID, then by Golly use it! Period! I know Ivermectin is used as a parasitic drug in cows and horses and has been around for many years. Drug companies need to be halted from making a quick buck via new unfounded and questionable alternatives, and should be penalized if they do not work for the greater good of society in times like this!

  21. Dianne Santos says:

    Ivermectin has been proven to treat Covid with good results. Of course, the government & Big Pharma prefer we get an experimental vaccine. As they say, “Our body, our choice. “

  22. Tammy Phipps says:

    I want Ivermectin used in the prevention and treatment of COVID. I want Drs. everywhere to have the information that assures them that ivermectin is safe and has been a safe alternative to the expensive, non healing meds being used to treat COVID. Ivermectin is a safer, better alternative and Drs. need to be informed!

  23. Jane Lightning says:

    The FDA wants to discredit cheap drugs because there is no kickback for them.
    All the wrong reasons.

    Vaccines are not POLITICAL They are developed to save lives – THAT’S what this whole thing should be about — not which one makes the most money. If it works, USE it to SAVE LIVES.

Anyone who hasn’t read the propaganda know this works and so does hydroxychloroquine. Government over-reach has no place in our Constitution, Health or Life. The so called Covid vaccines are they really helping anyone? Why are there so many people dying after taking the Covid shots? There are benefits of ivermectin and the FDA’s inexcusable and misleading warning about Ivermectin. The FDA and Big Pharma has a conflict of interest. These two; FDA and Big Pharma are working together against the best interests of the American people.

  30. John D Gardner says:

    What is the dosage if a person gets Covid?

  31. We’re being told to trust medical advice from people censoring the truth about ivermectin. Who in their right mind would get inoculated with an experimental mRNA injection when we know we’re being lied to about the effectiveness of ivermectin? Vaxxine “hesitancy” is based in logic. The mainstream media propaganda & social media shaming campaign is disgustingly obvious in using fear to stampede the masses. It’s working.

  32. Moi says:

    Ivermectin as a prophylaxis for Covid like hydroxychloroquine has been totally politized as an effective drug to be used by the medical profession by the main stream media in America especially CNN MSNBC ABC NBC CBS first by their collective hatred for Donald trump who advocated for use of these drugs against Covid and secondly because they derive so much of their ad revenue from the Pharmaceutical industry they are basically told to deprive the public of the value of these two drugs, in other words big Pharma tells media to debunk these two drugs because they cannot make billions of these drugs
