Actually its a medicine that paralyzes baby parasites, and alters the immune system so that things that shut it down don't work. Its also a Nobel peace prize winning medicine used in humans before it was used in animals.
Many medical professionals credit Ivermectin use for getting the virus under control in Japan and parts of India. Don Lemon would disagree of course while he lounges unmasked on his lounge chair in Florida though.
I am with you on trying to eat right and obesity being a problem here in America compared to Japan... but as far as the rest of what you said I guess I'm with Don Lemon.
Japan just had a massive wave of Covid cases and deaths... their largest so far. So it would seem whichever "medical professionals" were crediting ivermectin in Japan for "getting the virus under control" need to do some serious re-evaluating.
Actually the highest obesity rate in Asia is Malaysia at 14% with Vietnam < 2%. That’s a pretty small number compared to the 42% we see in the US. I see Thailand eating less healthy now than a few years ago but still nothing compared to the processed food consumption of the west. Stay safe in these crazy days.
