Myth of the Day is about washing your fruits and vegetables. Don’t do it. Detergent ingested can cause problems

Here’s a myth from the Jeffrey VanWingen video that has gone
viral with over 16 million views. Don’t believe all of it.
Yes, stay out of stores as much as you can but the rest is not based on science.
(I did not like how he washed his hands either. As a doctor,
he did not do it correctly or get all the surfaces. Here’s

Myths Busted:

Detergent ingested can cause problems.

Hand cleaning is key, said Donald Schaffner, a specialist in food science and a distinguished professor at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

Call for action for the White House to enact the Defense Production Act

Governors Cuomo, Baker (Mass) and other governors are calling for the White House to enact the Defense Production Act , federal coordination so that states don’t have to waste time competing against each other AND the Federal Government. The time WASTED in not having the National coordination to help hospitals get their needed supplies.

Please email or call the White House and our congress person to say, our medical professionals need help immediately. Enact the Defense Production Act so the supplies can be coordinated in a more efficient manner. What is the hang up? This is not socialization as the White House thinks. It is our survival that needs this coordination. This is a national crisis. Washington needs to take control of the ventilator supply and the medical supplies. It need to be Federally lead. We need the president to do this. We need a leader! Help, somebody in the White House. The president is not listening.

Steph Curry and Dr Fauci March 26th Q&A on Instagram at 10 am PT

Steph Curry will have a session on Instagram with Dr. Fauci Thursday March 26th at 10 am PT

Tune in if you can.  

Many of us like Dr. Fauci and trust him to give us the “real” truth.
Steph Curry wants to give Dr. Fauci a platform where he can give us the
information we need to stay in reality. Here is what you need to know to tune in.
You can send your questions in ahead of time.
Dr. Anthony is the Director here.

Dr. Fauci was appointed Director of NIAID in 1984. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis and malaria as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola and Zika. NIAID also supports research on transplantation and immune-related illnesses, including autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies. The NIAID budget for fiscal year 2020 is an estimated $5.9 billion.

Dr. Fauci has advised six Presidents on HIV/AIDS and many other domestic and global health issues. He was one of the principal architects of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program that has saved millions of lives throughout the developing world.

General prediction: we will pass all other counties in number of cases in the next 2-3 days.
