1. Preface

I initially titled this post ‘Is Dr. Gold a disinformation physician? Love her or hate her, the truth still matters’ to analyze one of several MedPage Today articles pillorying her. The truth, while heavily censored, if not buried, most certainly still matters and that is what we will uncover in this article. However, I changed the title following a conversation with a friend who directed my attention to the much larger issue at stake here — proportionate justice. 

The issue of justice refers not only to the judicial system that went after America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) founder Dr. Simone Gold as if she was a dangerous criminal on the loose — when else do you send a swat team to break down someone's door, arrest, and remove them in shackles?[2] — but also to the issue of justice in the court of public opinion where people are largely judged according to media and government dogma du jour which much of the public, unfortunately, accepts without question. 

In reality, the two have become entangled. If you accept one, it's much easier to justify the other. And what type of country and world are we living in then — where hard lines are drawn in the sand and we take incontrovertible sides where nothing can be questioned and injustice becomes the default? Is this the kind of world we want to live in? Consider this as you read further.

> Please note that while this article is specific to MedPage Today's criticism of Dr. Gold, much of the information provided in response is not. Furthermore, as the same sort of take-down is being done to many others who dare cross the narrative line, the same type of analysis can be performed, and the same or similar conclusions, as we've reached here, can be drawn. See ‘Section 4 — Malevolent media’ for some examples.

2. Introduction 

Piggybacking, yet again, on the venom being spewed against Dr. Gold, and anyone else who would dare question prevailing COVID-19 dogma constantly iterated by government authorities, the medical establishment, and mainstream media, on September 9, 2022, MedPage Today writer Cathy Clark penned her third article about Dr. Gold. This one followed Dr. Gold's early release from a maximum-security prison, her punishment for having entered the Capitol building on January 6, 2021. She spent the first 8 days of her term in solitary confinement as punishment for not being vaccinated.

Having characterized Dr. Gold as a “disinformation physician” in the article’s subtitle, Clark proceeded to weave a story, ostensibly supporting the epithet, in order to impugn Dr. Gold’s integrity and medical license (Dr. Gold is also a lawyer). By proffering to her readers what largely amounts to disinformation, misinformation, half-truths, and innuendos intermingled with some facts, and by conflating Dr. Gold's vocal position in questioning the mainstream response to COVID-19 with her entry into the Capitol building, it was very easy for Clark (as has been done by others) to attribute justice to her sentence and find cause to malign her even further. 

While the judge who sentenced her said that it had nothing to do with her views on the vaccines and “unauthorized medications," it is hard to imagine that she would have been arrested and sentenced as she was if she did not stand out as a serious threat to government dogma. 

Let's analyze Clark's depiction of Dr. Gold and the events of January 6th to determine where the truth really lies.

3. A law to silence doctors

In early September at the time Clark wrote her article a law proposed in California, since passed, would have doctors stripped of their medical licenses for giving their patients “misinformation” about COVID-19. The law, described in another MedPage Today article referenced by Clark, applies only to doctors who intentionally mislead or misinform patients under their care and not to what they may say on social media or elsewhere. Clark concluded the article with speculation about the future status of Dr. Gold’s medical license which, due to expire in November, was automatically suspended during her incarceration. 

It's also unclear whether the California licensing agency will reactivate it in light of legislation authorizing disciplinary actions against physicians who spread false or misleading information which now awaits Gov. Gavin Newsom's (D) signature.

This is the same Gov. Gavin Newsom who was caught violating his own mask mandate — not once, but twice.[3] 

Clark evidently hoped the law would be retroactive so it would automatically apply to Dr. Gold since it was unlikely that she would be seeing any patients in the near future, especially in California. Dr. Gold who, busy with AFLDS, hasn't seen any patients for the last two years, had moved out of the state, and was living and licensed to practice medicine in Florida.

> Suppose such a law was passed in your state. Would you want the doctor you trust to be forced to withhold medical information from you? Today it's related to COVID-19, but once the precedent is set it can be amended to include any other medication or treatment that is not “narrative friendly”. 

4. Malevolent media

Though Clark is not the only one to have referred to Dr. Gold as a disinformation doctor, the ad-hominem attack does not prove her to be one. 

This is not the first time that Frontline News has called out MedPage Today and other publications that appear to have "deliberately disseminated [information] with malicious intent or an intent to mislead" (to appropriate the new law’s wording). Here are a few such articles:

It was Clark's choice to mischaracterize Dr. Gold and AFLDS, including with information that appears to be "deliberately disseminated with malicious intent or an intent to mislead." 

The role of the media is further explored in Section 8b.

5. Uncovering the truth


a. AFLDS mission

Clark stated:

Simone Gold, MD, JD, founder of the anti-COVID vaccine organization America's Frontline Doctors (AFLD [sic]), . . .

Frontline News (FLN) responds:

AFLDS is not an anti-COVID vaccine organization. As its mission statement reads (in part):

America's Frontline Doctors is the nation's premier Civil Liberties Organization.

Our mission is to provide We The People with independent information from the world's top experts in medicine and law so you can be empowered with facts, protect your health, and exert your inalienable and Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Read the rest of the mission statement here.

b. January 6th “insurrection”

Clark stated:

Simone Gold, MD, JD . . . was released from a Miami federal prison Friday, 2 weeks before the end of her 60-day sentence for misdemeanor trespassing in the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection.

FLN responds

January 6th was not an insurrection, no matter who else may have called it that. 

In an opinion piece for the Springfield News-Leader, Attorney Derek Snyder defined what an insurrection is and isn’t:[4] 

The word insurrection is a legal term. Under federal law it’s a crime to incite or engage in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the U.S. or its laws. Black’s Law Dictionary defines insurrection as “a violent revolt against oppressive authority.” It is to be distinguished from a mob or riot based on organization of an armed uprising. Mobs and riots can involve unlawful and violent acts, but they aren’t necessarily insurrections. A revolt is an act to overthrow the government. Insurrection, therefore, requires an organized group that plans an attack to overthrow the government.

To date, a small percentage of the approximately 725 charged have been accused of violent crimes, and no charges of rebellion or insurrection have been filed. Around 165 have pled guilty to charges — mostly to misdemeanors. Only 30 were given jail time. The FBI investigation has yielded little evidence of a coordinated and organized attack. Instead, 95 percent of the participants were acting individually.

>Those who value honesty and accuracy would not use the word insurrection to characterize the events of that day. It’s not so hard to look up a definition on your own. 

c. Dr. Gold “is back”

Clark stated:

As she walked out of prison, a video posted on her Twitter account showed her smiling and making a heart with her hands. "I'm back," she said defiantly. Another video showed her doing push-ups on the sidewalk outside the prison doors.

FLN responds:

The word “defiant” generally has negative connotations, but it can be a positive or negative action depending on the situation. When fighting for truth and freedom, as Dr. Gold is, defiance is what’s necessary and demonstrates strength of character. (Before her incarceration Dr. Gold said that she would be back and that she was planning on losing weight and exercising while in jail. She is back and was obviously showing just how physically fit she became.)

d. January 6th downgraded from insurrection to riot

Clark stated:

During the Jan. 6 riot, Gold was videotaped in National Statuary Hall decrying government-mandated lockdowns as she advocated people to avoid the COVID-19 vaccine.

FLN responds:

As defined above, an insurrection and a riot are not the same thing and can’t be used interchangeably. 

While some people may have been rioting, January 6th itself was not a riot and Dr. Gold, as she explains in the video in Section 5e below, did not witness and was not involved in any violence. 

e. Dr. Gold’s sentencing

Clark stated:

In sentencing her in June, Washington D.C. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper emphasized that her statements about COVID vaccines and unproven medications were not the reason for imposing her incarceration — nor was she being punished for exercising her right to free speech — but her trespassing into a federal building was.

She pleaded guilty to one count, entering and remaining in a restricted building, which was one of five counts charged against her in connection with the Jan. 6 event, including disorderly conduct. 

FLN responds:

In the following video, Dr. Gold explains, in her own words, the events leading up to her entering the capitol on January 6, 2021, and about her sentencing. (Starting at 2:48.) 

Read about Judge Cooper's history of judicial malfeasance and why he should have recused himself[5] from adjudicating a case involving Dr. Gold here

f. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and ivermectin in the medical literature

Clark stated:

Since the early days of the pandemic, Gold has suggested in numerous statements or tweets advocating hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin as treatments for COVID-19 . . . 

FLN responds: 

Clark never explicitly states there is anything wrong with HCQ or ivermectin. However, it's fair to surmise that by dropping “subtle hints” along the way, such as 

  • speculation about Dr. Gold's license being revoked for her spreading false and misleading information about COVID-19 (and counting on her readers to know what that misinformation is), 
  • her stating that Dr. Gold decried COVID lockdowns and vaccines in the Capitol (and likely expecting her readers to agree that lockdowns and vaccines “are supposed to be good”), and
  • her juxtaposing Dr. Gold's advocating for HCQ and ivermectin in the same sentence as she stated that Dr. Gold also recommended against the vaccines after they were rolled out, claiming that there is much evidence as to the vaccines' benefit (an issue discussed in the following section) to presumably establish “guilt by association,"

she expected that her readers would make the negative inference about the use of HCQ and ivermectin for themselves. 

The truth, quite simply, is that Dr. Gold is one of many who advocate for using hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin because they work. Those were drugs she and other doctors used to successfully treat their COVID-19 patients. Both drugs, listed as essential medicines by the World Health Organization (WHO),[6] have long histories of safety. 

One of the things that alerted Dr. Gold to the fact that something untoward was going on with respect to COVID-19 was that she found herself, for the first time ever, being told by her hospital administration how to treat (or not treat) her patients. She explained that this never happened before — doctors have always been able to treat their patients as they deem proper and necessary.

> What happened to make treating COVID-19 patients different?

In case you're wondering about these drugs, the following is some of what we know from the medical literature, doctors, and even Pfizer.

i. Pfizer, NIH, and Dr. Fauci on HCQ

As Ashmedai revealed in his substack[7] Pfizer, as part of its ”COVID-19: Clinical Presentation PowerPoint," lists hydroxychloroquine, along with several other medications including alternative medicine, as appropriate anti-cytokine storm treatment for people already in the ICU.[8]

15 years prior to COVID-19, chloroquine (hydroxychloroquine is a safer formulation) was shown in the lab to be effective against SARS (COVID-19 is SARS CoV-2). 

A 2005 paper authored, in part, by scientists working at the CDC and published in the journal Virology[9] concluded that 

[c]hloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection.

On March 24, 2020, during the Philadelphia’s Morning Answer with Chris Stigall program,[10] Dr. Fauci stated that it is perfectly legal — and appropriate — for physicians to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to their patients “off-label”; physicians prescribe off-label all the time. This is the exchange between Stigall and Fauci about prescribing [hydroxy]chloroquine for COVID-19:

Chris Stigall: If you’re a doctor listening to me right now and a patient with coronavirus feels like they want to try [chloroquine] and you’re their doctor, you’re not Anthony Fauci the guy running the coronavirus task force, would you say ‘alright, we’ll give it a whirl’?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Yeah, of course, particularly if people have no other option. You want to give them hope. In fact, for physicians in this country, these drugs are approved drugs for other reasons. They’re anti-malaria drugs and they’re drugs against certain autoimmune diseases, like lupus. Physicians throughout the country can prescribe that in an off-label way. Which means they can write it for something it was not originally approved for. People do that all the time, and it really is an individual choice between the physician and his or her patient as to whether or not they want to do that. 

He did not, however, explain that there is evidence from 2005, supporting the use of hydroxychloroquine for SARS, even though he should have been well aware of the study. 

Presenting video clips of Dr. Fauci calling positive results with HCQ “anecdotal”, Right Wire Report writer Bekah Lyons questioned his seeming ignorance of the study in her May 5, 2020, article.[11] She explained that 

[t]he Virology Journal is officially published through the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and is part of the United States National Library of Medicine, a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Anthony Fauci, an immunologist, has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984. NIAID is one of 27 institutes that make up the NIH. Dr. Fauci is the lead Medical Expert on the President’s Corona Task Force.

She ponders a simple question: “Why is Dr. Fauci acting as if he knows nothing about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine?”[12]

Clark can find recent studies showing the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine for Covid-19 hereherehere, and here and learn more about the backstory of hydroxychloroquine here.

ii. Dr. Zelenko and Dr. Baric — zinc-ionophores inhibit multiple viruses

Hydroxychloroquine is a zinc-ionophore, one of several, as it helps zinc enter the cells. Once in the cells zinc inhibits viral reproduction. That's why Dr. Zelenko treated his patients with both hydroxychloroquine and zinc (as well as other drugs and supplements).[13]

This combination of zinc with an ionophore was proven to be effective against SARS by epidemiologist Dr. Ralph Baric, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Dr. Baric has been involved in gain-of-function research as well as the development of Remdesivir, a drug that includes liver and kidney failure as adverse effects (see footnote 10 for more information about Remdesivir).[14] 

Dr. Baric was one of several co-authors of a study published in 2010[15] which demonstrated that zinc, along with the zinc-ionophore pyrithione increased the cellular concentration of zinc and effectively impaired the replication of the virus.

The study also reported that the combination of zinc with an ionophore is effective against a number of other RNA viruses including poliovirus, influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, rhinovirus, and several picornaviruses (which cause respiratory tract infections).

In addition to HCQ, Dr. Zelenko included ivermectin, quercetin, and ECGC in his list of zinc-ionophores and also listed Hanta virus, Ebola, and Marburg virus as viruses which can be treated with zinc and a zinc-ionophore

More corroboration for the necessity of zinc to combat COVID-19 comes from a study published September 2020 in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. The authors conclude:

The study data clearly show that a significant number of COVID-19 patients were zinc deficient. These zinc deficient patients developed more complications, and the deficiency was associated with a prolonged hospital stay and increased mortality.[16]

In fact, the signature symptoms for COVID-19, loss of smell and taste, are both symptoms of zinc deficiency.[17] 

iii. Dr. Urso on HCQ as a “vaccine”

In the following video, Dr. Richard Urso explains how HCQ taken continuously as a prophylaxis can break down the virus before it enters the cell; any remaining virus particles that do make it into the cell are ineffective at creating disease but can elicit an immune response similar to a vaccine.

iv. Dr. Kory, and the FDA on ivermectin

Not only is ivermectin a zinc-ionophore which inhibits replication of the virus at its earliest stages including as prophylaxis, it also has properties that make it an effective remedy for COVID-19 even in late stages. 

Listen to Dr. Pierre Kory's impassioned plea before Senator Ron Johnson's panel on December 8, 2020, asking the NIH to review the mountains of data he and his colleagues had accumulated regarding the use of ivermectin in order to save COVID-19 patients. Dr. Kory has been perhaps the most outspoken advocate for the use of ivermectin.

Read the story of one family whose loved one was saved from death with ivermectin, only administered after the family fought the hospital in court, here. Many others have had to fight for ivermectin in court as well. Not everyone was successful. You can read about some of those cases here.

Clark can find studies and information showing the effectiveness of ivermectin here, here, and here and on FLCCC (Front Line Critical Care Alliance), the organization with which Dr. Kory is affiliated.[18] 

Epoch Times senior reporter Zachary Stieber revealed the FDA's own website is misleading the public.[19] The FDA's website exhorts people not to use ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19, pointing to a number of studies about which the agency states: 

Currently available data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19. Clinical trials assessing ivermectin tablets for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in people are ongoing.

Yet, Stieber noted that 16 of the 32 trials the FDA pointed to are actually supportive of ivermectin as treatment for COVID-19. Stieber quoted Dr. Kory as calling the FDA's position on ivermectin “one of the most glaring examples of the corruption of modern evidence based medicine.”

v. The importance of early treatment 

Dr. Baric, in a February 26, 2020, presentation about COVID-19, vaccines, and treatment, impresses upon his audience the importance of early treatment, as have Dr. Gold, Dr. Zelenko, and Dr. Kory, among others. (Note that the mortality rate for COVID-19 was found to be a lot lower than for SARS and MERS and much, much lower than initial estimates claimed.) Early in the presentation Dr. Baric explains that COVID-19 can cause ARDS (acute respiratory distress syndrome), a situation where after the viral load is gone the patient is still left with the immune pathology at which point the anti-viral is ineffective. Therefore, he maintains, early treatment is essential. Watch him state that below.

 

The entire conference can be seen here. Dr. Baric explains what ARDS is at about 13:50. Unfortunately, Dr. Baric chose to mislead his audience about the effects of Remdesivir since he supported its possible use against COVID-19 in this presentation (at 52:22). He claimed that while Remdesivir had been found to be effective against Ebola, other drugs were more effective, never mentioning that more people died from the drug than from Ebola during that trial (see footnote 10) or of its life-threatening effects on the liver and kidneys. 

>If you're experiencing cognitive dissonance at the moment, that's to be expected.

While it may be that Dr. Gold wasn't aware of all this information, it is quite apparent that these drugs are not “unproven medications” and there was/is no justification for preventing doctors from using them off-label. Significantly, DOCTORS WHO RECOMMEND OR PRESCRIBE THESE TREATMENTS ARE NOT DISPENSING MISINFORMATION OR MISLEADING THEIR PATIENTS.[20] 

g. Harms, deaths, and hospitalizations

Clark stated:

[A]fter the release of the vaccine, [Dr. Gold] has suggested the shot may be harmful and an "experimental biological agent whose harms are well documented," despite scientific evidence to the contrary showing it has avoided hundreds of thousands of deaths and hospitalizations. 

FLN responds:

Dr. Gold did not choose to ignore “scientific evidence showing that [vaccines have] avoided hundreds of thousands of deaths and hospitalizations.” She chose not to ignore the substantial scientific evidence, pre- and post-rollout, about the vaccines’ harms including evidence that the vaccinated are hospitalized more than the unvaccinated. 

Some examples:

  • In April 2020 Bill Gates was interviewed on CNBC's Breaking News program, where he let the world know that the vaccines were not without significant danger. He detailed the impossibility of making a safe, one-size-fits-all vaccine and said that hundreds of thousands of people would suffer from the vaccine and they wouldn’t vaccinate anyone until countries indemnified the manufacturers. That means that the manufacturers would have no liability for any injuries and deaths caused by the vaccines.[21] Watch Bill Gates explain this in the video below at 2:38.

 

  • Published November 2020, Jerusalem Post writer Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman reported that health and government authorities were going ahead with the vaccine campaign despite concerns about the unknown effects of mRNA vaccines including possible systemic inflammatory conditions that could lead to autoimmune diseases and “toxic effects of any non-native nucleotides and delivery system components,” saying “[t]here is a race to get the public vaccinated, so we are willing to take more risks.” For this reason, one of the individuals she interviewed said she would wait a year before deciding if she was going to get the vaccine.[22]
  • December 1, 2020, ex-Pfizer head of respiratory research Dr. Michael Yeadon and lung specialist and former head of the public health department Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg filed a petition with the European Medicine Agency (EMA) to halt introduction of the vaccines until the safety and efficacy concerns they detailed in the petition were addressed.[23]
  • December 10, 2020, the FDA revealed, at its advisory meeting, a CDC Safety Surveillance list of 22 possible serious adverse effects from the vaccines including convulsions/seizures, myocarditis/pericarditis, Guillain-Barre syndrome (paralysis), thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), disseminated intravascular coagulation (a serious condition in which blood clots form throughout the body, blocking small blood vessels), pregnancy and birth outcomes, and death.[24]
  • Published February 8, 2021, the Daily Exposé reported[25] that according to the UK Yellow Card Scheme (an adverse event vaccine reporting system)

[W]ith the rise in vaccines administered came a rise in adverse reactions with 49,472 reported reactions to the Pfizer vaccine and 21,032 reactions to the Oxford / Astrazeneca vaccine. For both vaccines this equates to 1 in every 333 people suffering an adverse reaction. This rate could actually be higher as some cases may have not been reported to the Yellow Card Scheme.

They highlighted the following: 

5 people are now blind and a further 31 have had their vision impaired. In total there have been 634 eye disorders reported so far. Imagine being confined to the same four walls for over a year and not being able to see family or friends. Then getting excited because you naively think an experimental “vaccine” is going to give you your life back and allow you to see them once more. But then leaving [you] without the ability to ever see anything ever again.

There have also been 21 cerebrovascular accidents thanks to the experimental Pfizer vaccine. A cerebrovascular accident is the sudden death of some brain cells due to lack of oxygen when the blood flow to the brain is impaired by blockage or rupture of an artery to the brain. A cerebrovascular accident is also referred to as a stroke.

  • In April 2021 the Israeli People’s Committee[26] released its first report. 

The report, which discussed the deaths and other adverse effects associated with the COVID-19 vaccines, was reviewed by COVID Call to Humanity.[27] 

  • Published August 27, 2021, by the Cov19 Longhaul Foundation,[28] This article referred to the study published as a preprint on medRxiv.org. It was subsequenlty published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases after peer review.[29]  Julian Conradson reported on

[a] new study out of Israel has seemingly confirmed that individuals who have natural immunity have better protection against the NEW DELTA VARIANT than people who are fully vaccinated. . . .

Not just a little bit better either. People who have taken both doses of the Pfizer jab are 13 TIMES more likely to have a breakthrough infection, and are even at a “greater risk for Covid-19 hospitalizations.” (Emphasis added.)

The study also showed they were 27 times more likely to experience symptoms.

As Pfizer CEO Ablert Bourla told the world, Israel was Pfizer’s lab,[30] with the dubious distinction of being the first country to vaccinate a large majority of its citizens and the country looked to for data regarding vaccine safety and adverse events.

(In 2004, Dr. Fauci said that getting the flu virus was the best protection anyone can get and if you really got the flu then there was no need for a vaccine.[31])

  • Published November 14, 2021, Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz informed the public about a tremendous increase in hospitalizations and deaths from infection and illness among the vaccinated. Watch Horowitz's announcement and the media discussion which ensued below. (English subtitles.)

 

  • On January 31, 2022, first batch of Pfizer documents released to the public.

The Pfizer “data dump” — documents the company was forced to release in order to comply with a FOIA request (after a judge ruled against the FDA’s request to keep those records confidential for 75 years)[32] — showed that just 2½ months after the vaccine’s release to the market tens of thousands of serious adverse events were reported to the company. Pfizer and the FDA hid this from the public and continued with the vaccination campaign

The following numbers are from their document ‘5.3.6 Cumulative Analysis of Post-authorization Adverse Event Reports’. Marked confidential, the document identified by FDA document number FDA-CBER-2021-5683-0000054.[33] 

Cumulatively, through 28 February 2021, there was a total of 42,086 case reports (25,379 medically confirmed and 16,707 non-medically confirmed) containing 158,893 events. Most cases (34,762) were received from United States (13,739), United Kingdom (13,404), Italy (2,578), Germany (1913), France (1506), Portugal (866), and Spain (756); the remaining 7,324 were distributed among 56 other countries.

  • Published March 2, 2022by Rebel News writer Tamara Ugolini, reporting on the Pfizer documents,[34] stated the following:

. . . the APPENDIX: List of Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESI) totals over eight pages in length. It’s a monstrosity of a list but a search for “death” yields neonatal death and sudden unexplained death.

  • Published May 20, 2022in Citizen’s Journal by Michael Nevradikis, Ph.D.,[35] who questioned why, in the most recent data dump

. . . despite the occurrence of a wide range of symptoms, including serious cardiovascular events, almost none were identified as being “related” to the vaccine.

  • Published July 9, 2022, by React19 — a list of 1,250 peer reviewed studies documenting vaccine injuries.[36]

    h. Dr. Gold’s Facebook page

    Clark stated:

    Gold, who according to her America's Frontline Doctors Facebook page, lost her job as an emergency room physician at a California hospital early during the pandemic for prescribing an unnamed medication to a Kaiser patient in the Los Angeles area, moved to Naples, Florida, earlier this year. 

    FLN responds:

    Readers who actually visit the Facebook page to which Clark linked will hear Dr. Gold (in an interview with Mel K on The Mel K Show) say that her medical director threatened to fire her, not that he did fire her.

    The real reason she lost her job was because of a video in which she appeared on the steps of the Capitol, an event the hospital said was embarrassing. Watch her discuss losing her job with Tucker Carlson in this video:

     

    i. California’s legislation against misinformation

    Clark stated (as was discussed in Section 3 above):

    It's also unclear whether the California licensing agency will reactivate it in light of legislation authorizing disciplinary actions against physicians who spread false or misleading information which now awaits Gov. Gavin Newsom's (D) signature.

    FLN responds:

    Regarding the California law, A Midwestern Doctor, making the most of the anonymity and freedom to speak one’s mind that Substack provides, warns that tyranny flourishes in a society whose citizens allow fear and anxiety to overtake them and the government to “save” them. [37] 

    Think for a moment about how rapidly censorship has increased over the last 10 years in our country: many trivial but politically incorrect statements can now cost one their employment and California recently outlawed its doctors from deviating from the partly line during a private medical visit, something which was previously unthinkable in America.

    As the data above clearly demonstrates the case against Dr. Gold (and other physicians) accused of spreading false or misleading information, as presented by Clark, is unsupportable. Facts show that it is Pfizer and government health agencies that are spreading disinformation. Consider the following:

    • May 2, 2022 — In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Surgeon General,[38] Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, Stanford University School of Medicine Professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, and Senior Research Fellow at the Brownstone Institute and former Professor at Harvard University School of Medicine Dr. Martin Kulldorff, cited the CDC and other health agencies as purveyors of disinformation to the public. The letter was in response to the Surgeon General’s request for ‘Impact of Health Misinformation in the Digital Information Environment in the United States’. They responded with a list and references for 9 different “examples of disinformation from the CDC and other health organizations” as follows:
    1. Overcounting COVID-19
    2. Questioning natural immunity
    3. COVID-19 vaccines prevent transmission
    4. School closures were effective and costless
    5. Everyone is equally at risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19 infection
    6. There was no reasonable policy alternative to lockdowns

    • June 19, 2022, Frontline News reported on Pfizer’s published (as required by the FOIA request) ‘Cumulative Analysis of Post-Authorization Adverse Event Reports’ in April 2021 with regard to its application for FDA approval.

    Although no formal study had yet been made of COVID vaccination during pregnancy, a number of pregnant women had inadvertently been vaccinated and by that point in time, 270 cases were known of. For 238 of these, Pfizer reported that “no outcome was provided”; of the remaining 32, 28 had ended with the death of the fetus. 

    These were categorized as 23 cases of spontaneous abortion, 2 cases of premature birth with neonatal death, 2 cases of spontaneous abortion with intrauterine death, and 1 spontaneous abortion with neonatal death. One baby had been born normally and survived, and 5 outcomes were pending.

    The analysis also looked at 133 cases of lactating babies exposed to the vaccine during breastfeeding (via breast milk), with 3 events described as “serious” although they are not specified, being absorbed within a general category of 17 serious and non-serious cases that included: pyrexia, rash, irritability, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, vomiting, pain, and allergy to vaccine.

    Pfizer’s conclusion? “There were no safety signals that emerged from the review of these cases of use in pregnancy and while breast feeding.” 

    Meanwhile, VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] reports related to abnormalities seen during lactation were mounting. One such report describes: 

    Patient received second dose of Pfizer vaccine on March 17 . . . March 18 her 5-month-old breastfed infant developed a rash and within 24 hours was inconsolable . . . blood analysis revealed elevated liver enzymes. Infant was hospitalized but continued to decline and passed away. Diagnosis of TTP.

    TTP is a known adverse outcome from COVID vaccination that involves platelet clots in the blood. 

    In another VAERS entry, a bereaved mother writes:

    I had been breastfeeding my 6-week-old baby at the time that I received the first Pfizer vaccine. He became very sick with a high fever about 2 weeks after . . . he presented with what they called an atypical Kawasaki disease. He passed away shortly thereafter from clots in his severely inflamed arteries.(Emphasis added.) 

    • During a Congressional hearing on June 23, 2022, Senator Ron Johnson called the government the biggest purveyor of misinformation, in response to former COVID-19 task force member Dr. Deborah Birx’s testimony that government officials, told the public that the vaccines were effective when they really just “hoped” they would work! FrontLine News covered that here.[39]

      The following recently published information also addresses vaccine injuries and deaths.

      • Published October 6, 2022, in The Epoch Times. Writers Jennifer Margulis and Joe Wang reported on a study published September 26, 2022, in JAMA which found mRNA vaccine material in maternal breast milk up to 45 hours after vaccination.[40]
      • Published November 2, 2022, in The Epoch Times. An interview by reporter Roman Balmakov with Florida-based Ob–Gyn Dr. James Thorp who specializes in maternal-fetal medicine discussed a leaked memo from a California hospital experiencing a 500% increase in stillbirths, information which was withheld from the public.[41]

      j. Making restitution for damage someone else did

      Clark stated:

      Upon her release, Gold will undergo 1 year of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay a $9,500 fine and $500 restitution to the U.S. Capitol architect to compensate for damage done to the building during the insurrection. 

      FLN responds:

      There are no videos showing Dr. Gold rioting in the Capitol. She was not shown near or involved in any rioting or damage to the building. Following is a video that has been circulating which shows Dr. Gold in the Capitol building. 

      As she wrote in her letter to Julie Kelly and explained in the video (see section 5e above), the judge inappropriately brought tangential matters into the case. Charging her for damage she didn’t commit is one such grievous matter. 

      6. On lockdowns and solitary confinement 

      In the subtitle and article, Clark wrote that Dr. Gold complained about being put in solitary confinement for eight days at the start of her sentence because she refused the COVID-19 vaccine. She also wrote that Dr. Gold was decrying lockdowns when she spoke in the Capitol building.[42]

      Both of her statements about Dr. Gold are true, and both solitary confinement and lockdowns are inhumane. 

      a. Lockdowns

      Here is UK former Supreme Court Justice Lord Jonathan Sumption declaring the lockdowns inhumane:[43]

      Here is UNSW Economics Professor Gigi Foster talking about the human costs of lockdowns:[44] 

      People are, by nature, social beings. For physical and emotional/mental health, we need the company and touch of others. Keeping people apart from one another creates a physical and mental health disaster.[45]

      In an article entitled ‘Lockdowns Can Be Cruel, Heartless, and Deadly (Part One)’, in the Australian Outlook, a publication of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, Former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations, Emeritus Professor of the Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University, Director of the Centre for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, and co-convener of the Asia-Pacific Leadership Network for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Ramesh Thakur FAIIA stated:[46] 

      Human beings are family- and community-oriented social animals. Sharing food and drink at home or in restaurants, enjoying the cinema, watching cricket, or appreciating a concert or a play are not optional add-ons but fundamental to our daily life

      What happens when governments prevent people from fulfilling the most basic of their human needs?

      Readers may remember the viral videos, made during the lockdowns, of neighbors getting together on their individual porches and singing; or musicians serenading seniors locked up in care homes, so great is the need for human companionship; or the poignant video clips of family members forced to say hello through doors and windows to spouses, parents, and other family members in care homes, since they were prevented from entering and their relatives prevented from leaving the confines of the home to be with them. They often watched them deteriorate because of the lack of closeness. And heartbreaking stories of hospital patients denied and deprived of the closeness and touch of family members, dying alone, saying goodbye over a tablet. 

      Loneliness kills. Psychologist Brené Brown, writing about the courage it takes to stand alone, shares this about loneliness:

      [If] . . . you find yourself questioning the idea that starvation and loneliness are equally life-threatening, let me share the study that really brought all of this together for me. In a meta-analysis of studies on loneliness, researchers . . . found the following: Living with air pollution increases your odds of dying early by 5 percent. Living with obesity, 20 percent. Excessive drinking, 30 percent. And living with loneliness? It increases your odds of dying early by 45 percent.[47] (Emphasis added.)

      Writing in August 2021, for Psychology Today on the need for human touch Dr. Nichol McNichols[48] questioned the wisdom of lockdowns altogether, pointing out that

      . . . those who are deprived of human touch are more likely to suffer from immune system diseases. It’s ironic that during a highly contagious pandemic where our immune systems are being the most stressed, we are being deprived of something (human touch) that is so essential to its function. (Emphasis added.)

      There was no evidence that lockdowns would accomplish what they were ostensibly meant to do — control the spread of the virus. Instead, they came with grievous harms, had serious negative impact on the mental health of women and children, increased suicide attempts among teen girls due to social isolation, and negatively impacted the mental and physical health of the elderly.[49][50][51][52][53] 

      Regarding the legality of lockdowns to begin with, America’s Front Line Doctors finds that

      [t]here is no legal precedent or legal authority for the United States government to “lockdown” its citizens. The United States Supreme Court has ruled in Shelton v. Tucker 364 U.S. 479 (1960) that the government cannot broadly curtail personal liberty. And there is no legal precedent or authority for locking down healthy citizens. The police power of quarantine only is possible against ill persons. Jew Ho v. Williamson 103 F. 10 (1900) and Wong Wai v. Williamson 103 F. 384 (1900).

      b. Solitary confinement 

      Solitary confinement is a much more serious form of physical and emotional deprivation, where prisoners are kept isolated in their cells, behind a steel door, for 22-24 hours per day. 

      Regarding solitary confinement, J. Wesley Boyd, M.D., Ph.D. and Gali Katznelson, writing in Psychology Today stated:[54]

      Let’s call it for what it is: Placing prisoners in solitary confinement is tantamount to torture and it needs to stop.

      . . . Solitary confinement is so egregious a punishment that in 2011, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment condemned its use, except in exceptional circumstances and for as short a time as possible . . .

      Certainly, Dr. Gold’s circumstances were not “exceptional” by any rational interpretation of the term, nor was there any evidence that Dr. Gold’s unvaccinated status made her (or anyone else including the “no longer vaccinated”) infected by default or put anyone else at risk. Had quarantine been legitimately called for she should have been transferred to another prison where she would be in the company of other women in quarantine. 

      Why was Dr. Gold really put into solitary confinement at all? Among the various reasons why U.S. prisons place prisoners in solitary confinement, according to the American Friends Service Committee, is in retribution for political activism.[55] Dr. Gold has become a very public figure — one of the strong voices of the growing medical freedom movement which threatens the medical–political autocracy. She was essentially “punished” for her decision that it was her body/her choice.

      7. An assessment of the consequences in the case of Dr. Gold

      In retrospect, did Dr. Gold’s involvement in the events of January 6th warrant the treatment she received — arrested by a swat team that raided her home, sentenced to a maximum-security prison, put in solitary confinement, and had her reputation and career decimated? 

      > Was this a judicially sound reaction? Did the crime merit the punishment? If not, were those tools used as a means to destroy and obliterate an outspoken physician? 

      While she made a mistake and admitted it, and her entering the Capitol building can obviously be considered a careless decision, Simone Gold paid with ultimate judicial force, receiving treatment heretofore reserved for dangerous criminals. 

      > Was this a weaponization of the federal justice system?

      What if she actually had committed a serious crime? What would the government have done then — send in an army battalion, the entire army? Was there any proportionality between what Dr. Gold did and what is apparently government retaliation applied with the ultimate hammer, because her speaking out is a threat to it? 

      What was done to her is an abuse and violation of democratic principles. It is sad that people will tolerate (and even applaud) this. 

      We are confronted here with a much bigger issue, one of far greater concern than whether or not HCQ and ivermectin should be used to treat COVID-19. HCQ, ivermectin, and early treatment presented a direct threat to the EUA, to vaccines, and the entire COVID-19 “crisis”. Given that these medicines save lives, they not only threaten the government’s narrative, but also present it with a tremendous liability for withholding early treatment. 

      This information, proven true, has great ramifications far beyond the issue in question. In light of what the government did to Dr. Gold, anyone with a dissenting position will now have reason to worry that they, too, will be hunted down. 

      8. A hard look at the situation at hand

       

      a. On recognizing the ongoing process of dehumanization

      Society goes down a very slippery slope once we start demonizing and dehumanizing people because of their ideology, among other things. Brown explains how it happens and the damage it does:[56]

      Dehumanization is a process. . . . [Chair of the philosophy department at Emmanuel College Michelle] Maiese defines dehumanization as “the psychological process of demonizing the enemy, making them seem less than human and hence not worthy of humane treatment.” Dehumanizing often starts with creating an enemy image. As we take sides, lose trust, and get angrier and angrier, we not only solidify an idea of our enemy, but also start to lose our ability to listen, communicate, and practice even a modicum of empathy. 

      Once we see people on “the other side” of a conflict as morally inferior and even dangerous, the conflict starts being framed as good versus evil. . . . Maiese writes, "Once the parties have framed the conflict in this way, their positions become more rigid. In some cases, zero-sum thinking develops as parties come to believe that they must either secure their own victory or face defeat. New goals to punish or destroy the opponent arise, and in some cases more militant leadership comes into power."

      . . .

      Successful dehumanizing . . . creates moral exclusion. Groups targeted . . . are depicted as “less than” or criminal or even evil. The targeted group eventually falls out of the scope of who is naturally protected by our moral code. This is moral exclusion, and dehumanization is at its core.

      Dehumanizing always starts with language, often followed by images. We see this throughout history. During the Holocaust, Nazis described Jews as Untermenschen — subhuman. They called Jews rats and depicted them as disease-carrying rodents in everything from military pamphlets to children's books. Hutus involved in the Rwanda genocide called Tutsis cockroaches. Indigenous people are often referred to as savages. Serbs called Bosnians aliens. Slave owners . . . considered slaves subhuman animals.


      Dr. Gold is a disinformation physician . . . people who question vaccines are anti-vaxxers, science deniers . . . question Dr. Fauci and you are questioning science . . . 

      People who question climate change are climate change deniers and anti-science.

      Question and you are a Conspiracy Theorist.

      Is science a religion?

      People who don't vaccinate against COVID-19 are murderers . . . grandma killers . . . it's as if they are walking around with a loaded gun . . . 

      Are good people automatically murderers if they don't subscribe to “the religion”?


      . . . 

      We are all vulnerable to the slow and insidious practice of dehumanizing, therefore we are all responsible for recognizing it and stopping it. 

      . . . 

      Today we are edging closer and closer to a world where political and ideological discourse has become an exercise in dehumanization. And social media are the primary platforms for dehumanizing behavior. . . . 

      . . . 

      There is a line. It's etched from dignity. And raging, fearful people from the right and left are crossing it at unprecedented rates every single day. We must never tolerate dehumanization — the primary instrument of violence that has been used in every genocide recorded throughout history.

      . . .

      Dehumanizing and holding people accountable are mutually exclusive. Humiliation and dehumanizing are not accountability or social justice tools, they're emotional off-loading at best, emotional self-indulgence at worst. And if our faith asks us to find the face of God in everyone we meet, that should include the politicians, media and strangers on Twitter with whom we violently disagree. When we desecrate their divinity, we desecrate our own, and we betray our faith. 

      . . . 

      Dehumanizing works because people who speak out against what are often sophisticated enemy image campaigns — or people who fight to make sure that all of us are morally included and extended basic human rights — often face harsh consequences.

      b. The media

      Clark is a journalist who not only tolerates this, but has jumped on the bandwagon to further promote this travesty of justice. She, like the government, has seen fit to conflate Dr. Gold’s perspective on COVID-19 with her entering the Capitol building on January 6th, to mete out more unwarranted and undeserved condemnation. 

      Relying on what others said about the events of that day and about Dr. Gold, Clark went ahead and put together a piece that was a collection of events that could even be called truthful because she was reporting on what others said or did, even though many of her sources were not truthful and not accurate.[57] Which means that by including some truth amidst the lies, disinformation is given the imprimatur of honesty and the honest are tarred and feathered.[58] While this may have added grist to the disinformation mill that’s fond of mischaracterizing, defaming, and punishing anyone who falls out of the mainstream line, and which increases the dopamine levels of those who gobble up this type of tripe, the article itself added nothing to anyone’s knowledge that couldn’t have been found anywhere else — except perhaps for throwing out the idea that Dr. Gold’s license be revoked. It certainly adds nothing else and basically wastes people’s time. 

      It is a curious thing to believe that well-respected doctors and scientists, many at the top of their field, would suddenly, as if on cue, decide to ruin their careers, reputations, and even risk their lives to do and say things that were really untrue about COVID-19 for no apparent reason. Until COVID-19 they were all perfectly reasonable and reliable practitioners and suddenly something happened to them and they became like lemmings jumping off a cliff — is that reasonable?

      Even more curious is Section 1e of the California law, which offers part of the basis for the law. It reads as follows:

      (e) Major news outlets have reported that some of the most dangerous propagators of inaccurate information regarding the COVID-19 vaccines are licensed health care professionals.[59]

      That means that part of the reason for the legislation was proclamations by the media! Is that the way you want your state's laws to be formulated? 

      Why would news outlets whose reporters, who are not physicians and often have no medical or science background, be such credible arbiters of medical truth that they are referenced as resources for legislation? 

      The glaring reason for this, as FLN has noted in a previous critique of MedPage Today, is that the media is conflicted. MedPage Today is supported by Big Pharma. The website’s parent company, conglomerate Ziff-Davis, counts large pharmaceutical companies and related corporations as its main regular advertisers. Furthermore, Ziff-Davis has a huge global reach, particularly among medical professionals, young parents, and others interested in medical topics. So Ziff-Davis, and by extension MedPage Today and all the other related media outlets that are part of the conglomerate have every monetary reason to “protect” their advertisers’ interests. 

      Other media outlets are also financed by Big Pharma — Pfizer supports many of them — so they have every monetary reason to “protect” Pfizer’s interests as evidenced in the video below.

      > Is it any wonder that news outlets would flagellate anyone and everything that would be in conflict with mainstream medicine?

      c. The government

      As for government relying upon the media — there’s a history there that is not so well-known. 

      In a 1995 Harvard Business Review article, Peter Vanderwicken,[60] discussing, “News and the Culture of Lying: How Journalism Really Works,” an analysis by former political scientist, journalist, and communications executive Paul H. Weaver, writes:

      The news media and the government are entwined in a vicious circle of mutual manipulation, mythmaking, and self-interest. Journalists need crises to dramatize news, and government officials need to appear to be responding to crises. Too often, the crises are not really crises but joint fabrications. The two institutions have become so ensnared in a symbiotic web of lies that the news media are unable to tell the public what is true and the government is unable to govern effectively.

      . . . 

      The rise of television has increased the demand for drama in news, and the explosion in lobbyists and special-interest groups has expanded the number of actors and the range of conflicts.

      . . .

      Business had to learn to play the game as well. Indeed, in recent decades, roughly since the founding of the Business Roundtable in the late 1970s, many companies have become adept at promoting the version of reality they want the public and government officials to believe.

      Which brings us to our present — escalated — situation where censorship by big business and government with media collusion has become so entrenched in society that the truth no longer matters as long as the “news” (and might we dare say legislation) conforms to one’s bias.[61] 

      This is the world we live in today. Is this the world you want to live in tomorrow?

       9. Conclusion

      Now that the facts have been laid out before you, dear reader — you be the judge. 

      1. Is the narrative that has been laid out before us by the media, government, and health authorities fact or fiction?
      2. Was justice served? Is Dr Gold a disinformation physician? Did Dr. Gold's punishment fit her crime? 

      If you think the narrative is real and justice was served then congratulate Cathy Clark and MedPage Today on a job well done.

      If not, then please follow Dr. Gold's exhortation from (the text of) her Capitol speech on January 6th:[62]

      When you know something to be false, you must reject it, period.

      When you know something to be true, you must stand up for it, and you must be willing to fight for it.

      Sending this article to your family and friends would be a great first step.

  • Hint 1: FLN reported previously that Dr. Fauci had been touting Remdesivir as a cure for COVID-19. Dr. Fauci's NIAID held the clinical trials for the drug which had been developed by Gilead Science. A course of Remdesivir (shown in Ebola trials to kill more people than Ebola) costs over $3,000 while hydroxychloroquine can be purchased for just a few dollars. Remdesivir received EUA status, which means it was not officially approved by the FDA. The FDA cannot approve a vaccine for a particular illness if an FDA approved a treatment already exists. In October 2020, the FDA gave the drug approval for use in a select group of individuals at high risk of hospitalization when administered in an in-patient or hospital like setting. It remains under EUA for the rest of the population (“FDA Approves First Treatment for Covid-19.” U.S. Food and Drug Administration, FDA, 20 Oct. 2020, https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-approves-first-treatment-covid-19/). 
    As FLN stated:

Remdesivir has a history beyond its promotion as a drug to treat Covid-19. It had been investigated as a possible cure for Ebola but had to be discontinued because of its deadly effects. According to the manufacturer, it can cause liver and renal failure[4] and the NIH acknowledges this as well.[5] The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends against its use since ”there is currently no evidence that remdesivir improves survival and other outcomes” in the patients for whom it is prescribed.[6]

In March, 2020, when the highly esteemed French professor of infectious diseases, Dr. Didier Raoult, demonstrated that hydroxychloroquine was an effective cure for Covid-19, he began receiving death threats. The French police traced the threats back to the doctor at Nante University Hospital who had received the most money from Gilead Sciences over the previous 6 years.[7]

It’s virtually impossible that Fauci didn’t know about the dark history of remdesivir. Remdesivir was one of four drugs being tested in a 2018 Ebola clinical trial and was dropped because it had the highest death rate of all the drugs being tested. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), of which Fauci is the head, sponsored the trial. 

The initial EUA status for hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 was subsequently rescinded and its use essentially banned for COVID-19 even though, as Dr. Fauci stated, it could be prescribed off-label by any physician. It was then replaced by Remdesivir, which received EUA status. Coincidence?

Here, we share an ever growing list of peer-reviewed studies specific to Covid vaccine adverse events. This list is curated and maintained by our dedicated staff of injured PhDs and medical professionals.

[39]: By her own admission, Dr. Birx herself went rogue. July 17, 2022, articles on websites such as the National Pulse and the Post Millennial, among others, reported on Dr. Birx’s revelations in her book Silent Invasion. As reported by the National Pulse, Dr. Birx admitted to

. . . doctoring data associated with the government’s response, as well as quietly altering the Centers for Disease Control advice without authorization . . .

. . .

Within weeks, however, Birx was thwarting the will of President Trump and his team, in order to prioritize the demands of pharmaceutical lobbyists and Chinese Communist Party sympathisers like Anthony Fauci. . . . (“Sabotage? – Dr. Birx Admits to Revising and Hiding Info from Trump's COVID Team, While Altering CDC Guidelines without Approval.” The National Pulse., 17 July 2022, https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/07/17/sabotage-dr-birx-admits-to-revising-and-hiding-info-from-trumps-covid-team-while-altering-cdc-guidelines-without-approval/)

Post Millennial editor-in-chief Libby Emmons reported: 

[I]n March 2020, [Birx] met with the President, and her plan was to obfuscate her intentions for economic shutdowns, knowing that Trump was wary of anything that would tank the economy he had worked so hard to build.

"I couldn't do anything that would reveal my true intention," she writes . . . Trump's team was more concerned about the impacts and potential for loss of lives to Americans of shutting society down. She blasts the administration for their concerns over the economy, concerns which have played out in real time . . . (Emmons, Libby. “Dr. Deborah Birx Admits Being Deceitful When Recommending Covid Strategies to Trump.” The Post Millennial, The Post Millennial, 17 July 2022, https://thepostmillennial.com/dr-deborah-birx-admits-being-deceitful-when-recommending-covid-strategies-to-trump )

[45]: Benefits of human touch include: 

  1. Inspire positive thinking and expand trust
  2. Reduce social anxiety and stress
  3. Boost immune system and lower blood pressure (Menges, Sara. “The 3 Biggest Advantages of Human Touch May Surprise You.” PlushCare, 24 Jan. 2021, https://plushcare.com/blog/advantages-of-human-touch-hugs/ )

According to Dr. Ralph Nikel (Deutsche Welle. “How Important Is Physical Contact to Health? – DW – 03/04/2015.” Dw.com, Deutsche Welle, 4 Mar. 2015, https://www.dw.com/en/how-important-is-physical-contact-to-health/a-18221243 ):

Touch and physical contact by a trusted person has a positive effect on the healing process. Touch helps reduce stress. Our sensation of pain is reduced when someone we care about holds our hand. . . . Touch reduces levels of neurotransmitters such as cortisol that weaken the immune system [a]nd . . . increases levels of neurotransmitters that strengthen the immune system, which in turn promotes healing and recovery from disease.

[57]: This is a typical modus operandi of media and the reason why many people believe information that’s not true. Frontline News has broken down this article for you to understand how to read critically, do your own real fact-checking (not like “fact-checkers’ do and which FLN has previously written about and linked to above), and how clever writers, along with government agencies, and large corporations, can hoodwink an unsuspecting public into even believing things that are outright lies and would often be identifiable as such if readers checked their information and sources (not with Wikipedia). Sometimes technical information seems intimidating, especially since those who have medical and science degrees have told us that we couldn’t understand it since we don’t have 8 years of medical school and they do. A medical degree does not mean that all doctors can make their way through a scientific article and that they even do this or do it critically. Often enough medical and scientific articles do have quite understandable information even for the lay reader who, after reading a number of them, will become more adept at understanding the non-technical information (and even a little bit of the technical such as the difference between relative and absolute risk) and look at references to see if they are related to the topic and if they prove or disprove the point.
