“Proceed With Caution At Your Own Peril” – Merck’s COVID ‘Super Drug’ Poses Serious Health Risks, Scientists Warn

As it turns out, all the scientists and doctors who insisted that Merck’s “revolutionary” COVID drug molnupiravir is extremely safe weren’t faithfully adhering to “the science” after all. Because according to a report published Thursday by Barron’s, some scientists are worried that the drug – which purportedly cut hospitalizations in half during a study that was cut short – could cause cancer or birth defects.

So much for having a “strong safety profile,” as Dr. Scott Gottlieb claimed in an interview on the day Merck first publicized the research.

It’s perfectly understandable why Merck might choose to play down this safety risk: assuming it’s approved, the drug is widely expected to be one of “the most lucrative drugs ever” – which is one reason why Merck’s shares soared into double-digit territory after the announcement.

As we reported earlier this week, Merck and its “partner” Ridgeback Biotherapeutics will profit immensely by charging customers up to 40x what it costs to make the drug, which Ridgeback originally licensed from Emory University for an “undisclosed sum”. The drug was developed with funding from the federal government.

According to Barron’s, some scientists who have studied the drug believe that its method of suppressing the virus could potentially run amok within the body.

Dr. Shuntai Zhou, a scientist at the Swanstrom Lab at UNC, said “there is a concern that this will cause long-term mutation effects, even cancer.”

” . . . he did not believe that molnupiravir should be given to pregnant women, or to young people of reproductive age, . . . ”
So it’s not OK to “give” it to young people because they are still malleable and breed and propagate but do give it old people because they are a challenge to the establishment and need to die.
And: “This drug will be incorporated in the DNA.” So bypass the messenger (RNA) and go straight to the DNA. Would could possibly got wrong with that?
Folks are waking up and no longer fall for this BS!

It’s exactly what they want -- drugs that will kill us more quickly. Prescriptions will be written for it and people will blindly take it. People will soon find themselves afflicted with cancer and their kids unable to reproduce.

WAKE UP PEOPLE! THEY ARE KILLING YOU AND YOUR KIDS (AND REPLACING US WITH 3rd WORLD SLAVES! WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO DEFEND YOURSELVES AND YOUR FAMILY???

If you can’t trust them and they are liars about the other stuff, then you sure can’t trust them with this one either.
