Commentary

Ivermectin & other controversial treatments

 

The mainstream consensus is that ivermectin has no benefit for Covid, discourages vaccination, &
poisons people.  Right wing groups claim it is a suppressed cure.  In the middle is a diverse community of health professionals, researchers, & independently minded people with a wide spectrum of different views.  We are here for that community.  We take no position on it’s efficacy.  We agree unsupported claims & misuse are causing harm.  We are pro-vaccine & pro-inquiry on vaccine side-effects. We curate informed posts on all sides of the ivermectin controversy.  If there is a 10% chance that ivermectin had a 10% benefit for some Covid patients, it merits objective study, especially for the millions of people around the world without vaccine access.
