Sometimes we don’t want to hear the truth because it creates so much intellectual and emotional dissonance in us. We WANT to believe that people will do what is best for us. If you have a child or plan to have a child or if you truly value your own health, please read the book, “The Real Anthony Fauci” by Robert Kennedy Jr. DO NOT take his word for it. You do not have to because it is one of the most referenced books I’ve ever read. If you don’t believe something he says, look up his references. I’d love to hear from you after reading.
There are people who do not want to know information that is different from what they already think. Adulting is taking in ALL the information and using your own brain to determine what you think is best. If you add experiments to prove one way or the other, that is the scientific method. In other words, the responsibility falls squarely on our shoulders.
In science everything is considered. They might laugh at your idea, but in real science, it is PROVEN one way or the other, not mandated. For example, when I was a kid and people had a stomach ulcer, medicine thought it was because they were worried and anxious. A doctor from Australia wrote a paper proposing there was an infection often involved with an ulcer. He was laughed at mocked, derided. But 10 years later when the “experiments to prove him wrong” came in, oops, he was right. How many of you have been treated for helicobacter pylori? That is the infection. He was right.
